Chemical Weapon Claims, New Pretext to Interfere in Syria




Allegations being circulated about the Syrian government’s plan to use chemical weapons against its people are nothing but a desperate attempt by the United States and Europe, who lead the anti-Syria alliance, to get a pretext to interfere in the Syrian affairs and launch a military strike against the country as they did in Iraq where they claimed the existence of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD).

Though Syria has repeatedly reiterated that it won’t use chemical weapons, if they exist, against its people under any circumstances, the enemies of Syria have been keen to fabricate scenarios and warn Syria against the use of chemical weapons. The aim has been to prevent terrorists from dropping their weapons and enhance their collapsed morale due to the hero Syrian Arab Army's qualitative operations against them.

Warnings against the repercussions of an alleged Syrian plan to use chemical weapons have all of a sudden become a top priority to anti-Syria media, particularly in the U.S. and Europe. The daily repetition of such warning statements indicates the West's intention to adopt the chemical weapons file as an excuse to interfere in Syria. Such propaganda aims at misguiding  the world public opinion, preparing it psychologically to accept any direct aggression by the West against Syria and turning the world's attention away from the West’s involvement in the Syrian affair through providing financial, logistic and political support to terrorist groups.

The West’s vicious campaign regarding chemical weapons coincides with NATO’s decision to deploy Patriot missiles near the Turkish border with Syria. Both moves aim to delude the world about the alleged danger coming from Syria, despite the fact that Turkey is the party which is hosting terrorists on its land, building them training camps and sending them to Syria to kill innocent people and undermine the Syrian state after being supplied with different kinds of weapons.

Observes don’t rule out the possibility that the architects and implementers of the current heinous campaign against Syria would supply terrorist groups with specific chemical weapons and urge them to use these weapons against Syrian civilians, thereby, paving the way for a wider media and political campaign against Syria that ends with a direct military intervention in the country.

Social networking websites have posted a YouTube video showing al-Qaeda-linked terrorists while manufacturing a poisonous gas from chemical materials they had got from a Turkish company. The gas was tested on rabbits, according to the Turkish “Yurt” newspaper. 

“Some al-Qaeda members are producing chemical weapons in a laboratory near the city of Gaziantep and threatening of using this weapon against Syrian civilians, the newspaper said, pointing out that Erdogan's Justice and Development Party government knows about these activities.

The history of the West is full of lies and falsifications. All of us still remember the Iraqi example and the pre-invasion campaign in which the U.S. and European parties created baseless news about the existence of Mass Destruction Weapons in Iraq, but, later, they couldn’t provide a single evidence of their claims.

The issue of chemical weapons is a psychological war method being adopted against the Syrians to incite the whole world against Syria. It matches the massacres used to be committed by terrorist groups before each time an international forum is held to discuss the Syrian issue with the purpose of mobilizing efforts to pressure Syria and adopt resolutions condemning it at all UN commissions.
