Kris Janssen: Alleged Khan Sheikhoun Chemical Incident Aimed to Provoke Military Aggression against Syria

All the facts and scientific analyses indicate that the Khan Shaykhun attack could not have been carried out by the Syrian Airforce but was set up to function as a false flag operation to provoke military aggression against Syria, hereby damaging the Syrian Arab Army capacities and sabotage the reconciliation talks, Kris Janssen, the Belgian journalist and peace activist told Syria Times e-newspaper when asked about his comments on the alleged Khan Sheikhoun incident and the US recent aggression on a strategic Syrian airbase in Homs.

Syria’s internal opposition Welcomes De-Escalation Zones in Syria

The document called for establishing de-escalation zones in the Syrian province of Idleb north of Homs, eastern Ghouta of Damascus and in Syria's southern area.

MSM Lies All the Time about Events in Syria… People in the West are Brainwashed

Foreign-backed terrorism, sanctions, and western schemes won't succeed in destroying Syria or breaking the Syrians' will to defend their country against all these evils, believes Kris Janssen, a Belgian journalist and a peace activist who recently visited Syria within a delegation of foreign journalists who came to know what is really going on in Syria and voice solidarity with the Syrians in the face of the ongoing terror war.

"If they want (Syria’s enemies) to destroy Syria then they have to kill every Syrian," Janssen said in an interview with the "Syria Times" e-newspaper, stressing that "no one should dictate the Syrians who will lead them".

Does The US Love Freedom of Information?

 My dear friend, Kris Janssen, was part of the visiting delegation to Syria. The delegations  comprises journalists from the United States, Australia and eight European countries.

According to statements by  Dr. Jamal Daoud, head of the delegation, the aim of the visit is to have future media cooperation as to convey the reality of events in Syria, and as voice solidarity with and support for the steadfastness of the Syrian People, Army and Leadership in their fight against terrorism.

I was so honored yesterday with the private visit of my friend Kris to the Syria Times headquarters. Mr. Kris, voiced his pleasure over the delegation meeting with Minister of Information, Mr. Mohammad Ramez Turjman.

Kris said that Minister  Turjman "gives good explanation," and was " open, honest talking in an open way." Minister  Turjman spoke " frankly and answered even critical questions", added Kris.

Kris, however, added that "Unfortunately, the Western media reverse the truth and the reality. " I said, your frequent visits are welcome as to clarify and depict the ongoing on the ground.

With this in mind, came the said and written by my facebook friend, Miguel Valenzuela , who wrote his own observations and impressions following the meeting with Minister Turjman:

I met the Syrian Minister of Information today in Damascus. He described the war as a culture of life vs a culture of death. He said that despite the war, we still have festivals and activities, and protect all faiths, as I've witnessed, while the "opposition" tries to destroy all of this and impose their way, as I've also witnessed.

He said that the Syrian government maintains two things: That there is no place in Syria for terrorism, and that the leader of Syria must be chosen by way of the ballot box; while the "opposition" only repeat two sentences: "Assad must go" and "Give us the keys to power in Syria." But there are more than 1,200 armed groups in the "opposition", so who exactly will get the power?

He said that when he became the Minister 6 months ago, he met with one of the strongest armed groups called Jayish al Islam. The group started to have trouble with the other groups nearby and within two weeks there were more than 700 killed between these groups. He asked them what can we expect if they're leading this nation when they're already killing each other? He asked them why are they dismantling factories and medicine manufacturers and selling them to Turkey? He said that real revolutions protect these vital infrastructure, but this is not a real revolution.

He said the plot against Syria was discussed openly long ago during the Condoleezza Rice talks. Essentially, they want to dismantle our nations and establish a "New Middle East". He said this is the plan of the United States but it won't work. They have tried to spread sectarian hate to divide us but it didn't work. Syria is united.

"Regarding the 'chemical attacks' that we are being accused of by the United States, which supposedly was the reason for launching a missile attack on our airbase, there are many important questions to ask. Why were there so many civilians present in the uninhabitable area where the 'chemical attack' allegedly took place? Why were the so called 'White Helmets', who were first on the scene wearing masks and some were not? Why did they not wear gloves when touching the bodies, if it was indeed a 'chemical attack'? Why would the Syrian government attack these people? What's the point? What do we have to gain from this?

There needs to be an independent analysis to find out what is true and what is false before responding, but the US did not wait for one, they generally don't, even though in the media they always say that they're defending 'truth and freedom'

I'll give you an example as well of how much the US "loves freedom of information"...the first thing they did when the crisis started was ban satellite TV from broadcasting Syrian channels and they pulled their ambassadors out of Syria. Syrian broadcasting headquarters, Alakhbaria, Syria TV was attacked many times by mortars and suicide bombings. Syria TV headquarters was completely destroyed. Many journalists were killed in these attacks, but in spite of this, journalists are still going to work because they believe that they are on the right side of history."

 "We depend on good people like you from around the world. We want you to take all that you have witnessed here back to your country. We understand that most people are scared of coming to Syria especially now with the US attacks and all the hysteria in the media, but you are here. We welcome you to Syria and we thank you for your courage."

A message to President Trump

 A message from a  Homsi to President Trump: All day here, in Homs, Syria, been getting the people's reactions to the US bombing of the nearby air field and "You suck" sums them all up pretty well. A very dear close friend lost his uncle today, one of the leaders of that airbase. A man who had been fighting ISIS for years in Deir Ezzor.

Anger, sadness, frustration, disgust but not much surprise. While many here were encouraged by Trump's campaign rhetoric, they know that talk is cheap. They've been waiting to see if there might be some slim possibility of an American president who would not have a "shoot first, ask questions never" foreign policy.

Well, now they know. Nothing has changed. The allegations of chemical weapons use by the Syrian government are asinine...stupid.

But not as stupid as our decades-long policy of arming, training, funding, recruiting, and lying for terrorists...packaging and branding them as "moderates" or "freedom fighters" while thinking we can control these demons.

You don't know America. You just don't know.

You can't train a rabid dog because they'll bite most viciously the hand that feeds them.

Friends and family with the best of intentions are urging me to leave here. I will not. In all the world, this is the place to be.

Walking around the city today and tonight, quiet earlier because its Friday, then coming so alive later in the evening...I'm reminded again and again of repeated sentiments from the people here. They say:

"President Trump, we are Syrians. Our president is our president and only we will decide if he stays or if he goes - not you. Our army is our army and they are protecting us from terrorists you call 'rebels'. Our country is our country. We want peace - we are so tired of war - but we will never give up fighting for our Syria."

I am quite safe and comfortable, please don't worry about me. I love America, the ideals we were founded upon. But there is only one way to make America great again ... and that is to make America good. Integrity, good will, wisdom.

We launched 59 Tomahawk missiles of death and destruction today. For the cost of each one, $1.2 million, we could have built a school here

Think about it, won't you?
