- Chemical Attack in Douma Was A ‘Pure Fake’ – Expert
After unqualified reports emerged from Douma that the Syrian government had used chemical weapons against its own people, Western mainstream media once again said that Bashar Assad was guilty of war crimes. Any alternative accounts were simply dismissed as ‘propaganda. Sputnik spoke to international relations expert Xavier Moreau for more.
Sputnik: Since the alleged chemical attack in Douma earlier in the month, we’ve heard conflicting reports coming out of the now government controlled city. Some have said that Syrian government forces dropped chemical weapons on civilians, but other reports — corroborated by doctors on the ground in the hospital where the victims were allegedly treated — say that there were no chemical weapons, and that the attacks were staged — what is your opinion on these competing accounts, and what is closer to the truth in your mind?
Xavier Moreau: In my opinion the chemical attack is a pure fake from the White Helmets. The problem is that the White Helmets are English structure that was built by the former MI6. So we perfectly know that it’s a complete fake but the problem is that now it seems the phase is over and for instance, you should take Emmanuel Macron in France, he doesn’t want to talk about it anymore. All the media in France have closed this affair, it seems to that it’s no longer possible to talk about it.
