The Western MSM narrative of Assad’s Douma ‘chemical weapon attack,’ long questioned by many castigated as conspiracy theorists, has collapsed. It is moribund.

The United Nations’ Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) recently released their report into the alleged chemical weapons attack in Douma, in the Syrian Arab Republic (SAR.) Despite having the mandate to apportion blame, the OPCW did not. Which is understandable given the evidence uncovered by their investigation. You can read a full précis of the report at the end of this article. I suggest those interested check the précis against the full report to verify my interpretation of the various OPCW statements.

The OPCW Douma Findings

Following the alleged attack, the Western mainstream media (MSM) was full of reports about the supposed atrocity. The Guardian wrote ‘Assad’s Crime: The World’s Responsibility.’ The Times ran with the headline the ‘Evidence Shows Syria Attacked Own People With Chemical Weapon.’ The New York Times wrote ‘One Building, One Bomb: How Assad Gassed His Own People.’

In fact the BBC, CNN, Fox, Ch4, ITV, all the print and online MSM, were all of one, single, cohesive voice. They all categorically blamed the ‘Assad regime’ (the democratically elected government of the Syria) for murdering his own people. Almost without exception, they called for military reprisals. More war was the only answer on offer.

This wave of uniform, uncritical, on message, yet supposedly ‘independent’ media, dovetailed perfectly with the political rhetoric. Stoking up the public appetite for more killing. This culminated in the military partnership of the UK and France, goading their big brother the U.S into coordinated joint airstrikes against Syria. Speaking about her decision to launch military action, the UK Prime Minister Theresa May made a speech to Parliament on the 14th April which included the following statements:

“This evening I have authorised British armed forces to conduct co-ordinated and targeted strikes to degrade the Syrian Regime’s chemical weapons capability and deter their use……….In Douma, last Saturday a chemical weapons attack killed up to 75 people, including young children, in circumstances of pure horror……A significant body of information including intelligence indicates the Syrian Regime is responsible for this latest attack………This persistent pattern of behaviour must be stopped………This action is specifically about deterring the Syrian Regime………We would have preferred an alternative path. But on this occasion there is none.”


The latest report from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) is devastating to the narrative of the Mockingbird Media and their handlers in the military industrial complex.
