- US and UK Need Some Pretext to Attack Syria – Investigative Journo
Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem has recently stated that the UK special services helped al-Nusra Front terrorists arrange a gas attack on civilians, stressing that canisters with chemical weapons had already found their way to Idlib. Speaking to Radio Sputnik, investigative journalist Christopher Oldcorn shared his views on the issue.
Sputnik: There are repeated warnings by the Syrian and Russian officials on possible provocations in Syria. They’ve been there for the last couple of weeks; nothing has been forthcoming. What’s your take?
Christopher Oldcorn: It’s typical American and British imperialism. Right now they need some sort of pretext to be able to attack Syria. Idlib is basically the last stronghold that the terrorists have in Syria. Somehow, so far, Assad and his Syrian Army have defeated the US and UK in this proxy war but Idlib is their last stand. If Assad can free Idlib, there is no foothold left in Syria for the Western countries. So they need to host some sort of false flag chemical attack to get the public support that they need to attack Syria. They need to paint Assad as some sort of animal, gassing his own people. Then the US and UK can bomb Syrian military installations and anything else they want. But why is he providing safe passage on the humanitarian route out of Idlib if his plan is just to kill his own people? It makes no sense.
