A long time ago, in a proxy war far, far away, some YouTube videos (around 100 of them apparently) “proved” that Bashar al-Assad’s regime had unleashed a horrific chemical attack on its own people.
In a lengthy report subtly titled "Syrian Government’s Use of Chemical Weapons on August 21, 2013,” US officials laid out their reasoning for trusting the veracity of the clips, and while you can read the entire report here, the punchline is this: “We have identified one hundred videos attributed to the attack, many of which show large numbers of bodies exhibiting physical signs consistent with, but not unique to, nerve agent exposure. We assess the Syrian opposition does not have the capability to fabricate all of the videos.”
That’s right, the US very nearly started World War 3 based on Washington’s assessment of the Syrian opposition’s video editing capabilities.
Fast forward to March when, almost two years after the first round of YouTube chemical attack videos nearly led to US strikes on Damascus, Washington still hadn’t managed to stir up enough public support for an invasion (which may have something to do with the fact that most Americans couldn’t even identify Syria on a map let alone tell you anything about its four-year old civil war) and lo and behold Reuters reported that “a group monitoring the Syrian civil war said government forces carried out a poison gas attack that killed six people in the northwest, and medics posted videos of children suffering what they said was suffocation."
That prompted the John Kerry to send the following message to the Syrian regime: “Assad must be held accountable for atrocious behavior [and] military pressure may be needed to oust [him]”
Well, five months later and the American public still doesn’t care about Syria or Assad (after all, there are more pressing issues to worry about, like Cecil), but one thing it does care about is ISIS which is why now, the West will try to tie Islamic State to chemical weapons and see if that’s effective at bolstering support for boots on the ground. Here’s CNN:
The U.S. is investigating what it believes are "credible" reports that ISIS fighters used mustard agent in an attack against Kurdish Peshmerga this week, causing several of them to fall ill, U.S. officials working in at least three separate parts of the Obama administration said Thursday.
All of them strongly emphasized more intelligence is being gathered on exactly what may have happened near the town of Makhmour in northern Iraq.
And here’s WSJ explaining that ISIS most likely obtained the mustard gas in Syria or maybe in Iraq where stockpiles belonging to Assad and Saddam Hussein, respectively, were supposed to have been destroyed but weren’t:
Islamic State militants likely used mustard agent against Kurdish forces in Iraq this week, senior U.S. officials said Thursday, in the first indication the militant group has obtained banned chemicals.
The officials said Islamic State could have obtained the mustard agent in Syria, whose government admitted to having large quantities in 2013 when it agreed to give up its chemical-weapons arsenal.
The possibility that Islamic State obtained the agent in Syria “makes the most sense,” said one senior U.S. official. It is also possible that Islamic State obtained the mustard agent in Iraq, officials said, possibly from old stockpiles that belonged to Saddam Hussein and weren’t destroyed.
U.S. intelligence agencies are still investigating the source and how it could have been delivered this week on the battlefield, officials said.
Islamic State has taken control of territory in Syria close to where President Bashar al-Assad’s forces stored chemical weapons, including mustard agent. The regime said in 2013 that all of its mustard stockpiles had been destroyed, either by Syrian forces themselves or by international inspectors.
Inspectors, however, have subsequently said they weren’t able to verify claims by the Syrian government that it had burned hundreds of tons of mustard agent in earthen pits. U.S. intelligence agencies now say they believe Damascus hid some caches of deadly chemicals from the West, possibly including mustard.
WSJ goes on the say that as of now, it's "unclear how much mustard Islamic State might have obtained," and the German ministry says we won't know for sure whether any mustard was spread until a team of German experts (who are "on their way to the scene") have had a chance to assess the situation. "What it was exactly we don’t know," a spokesman said.
But that's ok because the US does know courtesy of multiple "independent reports." And if that's not good enough for you, just ask Congressman Adam Schiff, a ranking member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence:
"Did ISIS find some mustard? We think they did. We think they have used it."
And John McCain agrees, as is clear from the following tweet, in which the Senator encourages you to read a completely unbiased WSJ Opinion piece called "Islamic State Gets Mustard Gas: Assad’s stockpiles weren’t destroyed, and the jihadists have them".
McCain - who, you're reminded, is the poster child for foreign policy failures in Syria and Ukraine - seems to have completely missed the irony in his retweeting an article in which the very first line reads: "foreign-policy failures have a way of compounding."
In any event, we suspect it won't be long before John Kerry tells the nation that it might be necessary to use further "military pressure" to hold ISIS accountable for their "atrocious behavior" which is now in direct contravention of another international warfare "norm". As for seeing "proof" that Islamic State did indeed "find and use some mustard," don't hold your breath (unless there's mustard gas around):
While there have been accounts posted in social media about the incident, the officials said they have independent information that strongly led them to assess there was a use of chemical weapons. The officials would not tell CNN what evidence led them to this belief.
My readers know by now that USrael is behind the ISISILDaeshQaedaNusraFSA… theater, as it develops, finances, supplies weapons, equipment, vehicles, provide intelligence directly or covertly via its partners Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan and Turkey and therefore closely cooperates with its self-created cut-throats (thanks to the US taxpayers). From the very beginning at the appearance in Iraq and Syria, I reported that the terrorist organization ISIS ISIL or IS and how else they call themselves, is supported and controlled by Washington for the benefit of its allies in the ME, mostly Israel to render feasible the Yinon- Erez-Israel-Plananticipating the rabid Zionist desire for the origination ofThe Greater Israel.
Now even Der Führer himself admitted it:'We are training ISIL'during a press conference.
Parsifal, July 9, 2015
The statement is:
'...that is why, with the additional steps I have ordered last month, we are accelerating the training of ISIL forces, including volunteers from Sunni tribes in Anbar province...'
He made this without flinching, without correcting immediately his statement.
One explanation for this may well be a Freudian slip, also called lapse linguaet or a linguistic blunder, where supposedly a basic thought or an intention of the speaker involuntarily outcrops.
I would like to note once and for all and address everyone who constantly says 'Obama is a liar!'
Der Führer has spoken the truth, and it slipped him out.
video description:'The White House.gov website has corrected an embarrasing mistake made by President Obama during his press briefing yesterday about the Islamic State when the President said that U.S. forces were 'training ISIL''
'ISIS was created through the financial support of our friends and allies. They have recruited zealots and religious fundamentalists, so they fight to the death against Hezbollah'
Clark knew better as 'to denominate US friends and allies' by name, but is not difficult to guess whom - except Israel - he meant.
According to Clark, the USA seem to be directly involved.
Because the General continued in plural:
'We have created Frankenstein'.
Clark means the US allies in the Middle East, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, etc. and that the ISIS would have mutated to a monster.
The background image that CNN used, 'War with ISIS', can be understood as a 'war along with ISIS'.
Otherwise it would have to be written there, 'War on ISIS' or 'War against ISIS'.
Already October 2014 it came out that humanitarian aid comes from USAID is delivered to the ISIS.
But not only food and medicine, but also American arms shipments that are dropped by air, land 'by mistake' in the hands of the Islamist Jihad Wahhabi head cutters.
The terrorist group 'Islamic State' is a remake of Al-Qaeda, which is denotes for the good faith Western audiences as 'enemy' and combats for show but to actually apply it as a useful tool to destabilize the target country and therewith to intervene militarily.

In effect, the IS is used for partition of Iraq into three regions for weakening of the country, for the overthrow of Dr. Bashar al-Assad in Syria and his replacement by a willing USrael puppet as we see in Egypt.
Who can really believe the terrorists are allegedly fought with bombing by the US Air Force when they ever conquer simultaneously in Iraq and Syria more territory, control the two countries almost half, and unhindered can spread even to Libya and Afghanistan.
Without massive financial and military support from the West it is not possible.
Thus, the historical evidence is provided that Dr. Assad was always right when he explained that the fighters come from abroad and were trained by the Yankees.
Everyone who only somewhat acquaints oneself recognizes, the US regime and its NATO lackeys totally invent a so-called threat which would emanate from Russia against Western Europe.
The purpose of this permanent lying and scaremongering is to justify the military build-up in eastern Europe and the stationing of weapons and soldiers on the Russian border. This was confirmed by Bruce Gagnon, son of a professional soldier who himself served the Air Force in 1971 in the US, but then because of the Vietnam War became a war opponent.
'Today, there is no danger from Russia, NATO is exaggerating a Russian threat',
he said the other day as chairman of the Global Network Against Weapons & Nuclear Power in Space'.

As with all issues, the reality is turned upside down and with the controlled media lied like crazy, portrayed the West as the good and all the others as evil.
In reality, the United States, NATO and the so-called West are the only aggressors and threaten Russia ... and China, The Iran and any other country that does not submit to the dictates of the Western Multinational's dictatorship.
These warmongers-hawks pretend peace, yet they only brew extortion, conquest and war.
How many countries have covered with war China, the Russian Federation, or The Iran ?
Zero, nada, nothing.
Conversely, the list of countries against the Americans or British fought wars is very very long.
With a few exceptions, almost all have been attacked already in the last 100 years.
Whether in Latin America, Africa, Asia or Europe, the rogue Anglo-American Empire has repeatedly slammed military.
Why has the so-called defense alliance NATO fought a war for 13 years in Afghanistan ?
Has Afghanistan attacked a NATO member ?
The German government has not only lied, but also broke the Basic Law (the German Constitution), in which it has claimed, 'Germany is defended in the Hindu Kush'.
Ex-Chancellor Gerhard Schröder has even admitted he has violated International Law when he ordered the army to wage a bombing campaign against Serbia.
'There we sent our planes to Serbia and bombed together with NATO a sovereign state - without that there was a Security Council decision'.
Who bombed Libya into the Stone Ageand brought extremists and terrorists to the helm ? The NATO. Who created the Al-Qaeda and the ISIS FIRST ? The CIA
The NATO countries have against international law a European country bombed for 80 days, with the aim of breaking up the Balkans and conquer. After the invasion of NATO troops in Kosovo in June 1999, the US military base Camp Bondsteel was built in Ferizaj.
The base serves as a 'black site' with a prison camp, where people are tortured and kidnapped to. The Human Rights Commissioner of the Council of Europe, Álvaro Gil-Robles, spoke after an inspection in 2002 of 'shocking conditions' in the camp.
But the Americans are indeed the good guys, we are constantly told !
And who caused the huge wave of refugees sweeping Europe, because we have the people in the Middle East and North Africa destroyed the homeland and the livelihoods ? Yes who, well ? The American war machine !
Who bombed at this moment strategic and logistic governmental goals in Syria and Iraq (and NOT the IS ) ?
The American Air Force.
Who commanded the war from the air with killer drones to Pakistan and Yemen ?
The Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack Obama.
Who is constantly pulling up with aircraft carriers and warships off the coast of The Iran and China on provocative way ?
The US Navy.
Who ever enters the Baltic Sea and the Black Sea again and again with its Navy and holds maneuvers offshore Russia ?
It is ignored the by the West staged coup in Kiev, the violent overthrow of the democratic elected government, and acted as if Russia has caused the crisis in Ukraine.
The inhabitants of the Crimea fought only with their referendum against the takeover by the Nazis and understandably reconnected to the Russian Federation.
This expression of the popular will but is completely twisted, wrongly as portrayed as forcible annexation and used as a pretext for sanctions against Russia.
ALL Western governments exclusively consist only of dirty liars and warmongers.
From several sides I am daily informed by witnesses, as they observe the transports of American arms to Germany and then on to Eastern Europe.
On June 6, an armored transport rolled on track through Mannheim, with aim Coleman Barracks.
On May 4, 2015, the re-occupation of the site began with the units '16th Sustainment Brigade' and '21th Theater Sustainment Command', equipped with M1 Abrams and M2 Bradley tanks.

A logistics expert informed me he had just returned from the States with a mission to transport thousands of US troops and heavy equipment in the coming months from the USA to Germany.
There is a massive American armament in Europe.
This was confirmed by the US Secretary of War Ashton Carter when he visited Berlin on Monday, Washington will deploy heavy military equipment in Eastern Europe.
The goal is 'the resilience of the alliance and in particular to increase by allies on their edges' Carter said.
'We will oppose Russia, when it tries to gain a sphere of influence as in the Soviet period',
Carter said, referring to the Ukraine crisis.
What doth this weirdo ?
Moscow has no interest in a territorial takeover of Ukraine.
The civil war has instigated the West, total chaos, the West presented and the bottomless pit to kindly fill the West with money.
It is yet again reversed.
The West has expanded its sphere of influence over Ukraine.
The regime in Kiev is still following orders from Washington.
If Moscow really wanted to snare Ukraine it would have done that a long time.
What's going on in the Ukraine a civil war by the fascists against antifascists, as in the Spanish Civil War in the 1930's.
The population of Donbass like in the Crimea will not be ruled by Nazis and defend themselves against the attacks of mercenary troops of the oligarchy and the army of the coup regime.
Which is anyway falling apart, because the young Ukrainian men deserting en masse TO RUSSIA, or cop out from obligatory military service.
Who is so stupid and shoot at their own people and wants to die for the chocolate-President ?
Who has created a so-called rapid reaction force a new ?
This 'spearhead' has recently completed in Poland its first major maneuvers.
2.100 soldiers from Germany, the Netherlands, Norway and Poland demonstrated together with forces from the Czech Republic and Belgium on the parade grounds in Sagan their joint combat capability as companies and battalions.
Against whom this force is directed ?
Against Russia, of course.
A 'spearhead' is meant not a defensive weapon, but for attack.
Ashton Carter displaced Chuck Hagel in February 2015 as head of the Pentagon, who had after less than two years in office to pressure from Obama declared his resignation in November 2014.
Because Hagel did not want to support the war policy against Russia.
Carter is the fourth Pentagon chief since Obama took office in January 2009, linked to General Philip Breedlove, Supreme Allied Commander Europe, and Frederick Hodges, commanding general of the United States Army Europe, plus NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, to these people who unconditionally want a war with Russia.
Your support to have the B.O.L.E. (incl. all articles) open and free for everyone is much appreciated.
People in Europe should at last understand, Russia is portrayed as an enemy image and demonized, because these war hawks want a war on European soil and not because Russia would be a threat.
The system in the West is completely broken and on collapse, so mean the psychopaths in power, only a war-like state or a real war can yet save the imploding empire.
History shows what regimes make when they see no loophole.
They do prefer war to distract, rather than being confronted with the harsh consequences of their mismanagement.
Therefore my message toall the soldiers of NATO:
Do not believe the lies that it is about defense and therefore you have to sacrifice your life. Remember what Henry Kissinger said about you:
'Military Personnel are dumb stupid animals, used as pawns for foreign policy!'
He said that during the Vietnam War at that time Pentagon chief Alexander Haig, as in the book 'The Final Days' by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein in Chapter 14 page 194 in 1995 published as a quotation.
Here the press conference by NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg on the 'spearhead', which is directed against Russia. Listen carefully to what he says, even over Ukraine and Afghanistan. Who elected these lunatics at all ? What is their legitimacy ? Memorize his face so that he can be arrested on occasion and brought before a future war crimes tribunal:
