UN unable to independently verify the allegations of chemical attack in Douma

LOL So someone just told me that I should stop using the term “hoax” when talking about the alleged chemical attack in Syria, as it sounds like I’m saying it didn’t happen at all.

When I say “this is a hoax,” I refer to two separate possibilities:

It was a real attack done by ZOG-backed terrorists in Syria to blame on as Assad, or

It didn’t even happen at all, and it was just filmed by actors I think both are distinct possibilities, and both would qualify under the term “hoax.”

Option #1 is probably the more likely option.

However, the UN is now saying that option #2 is a possibility, as they have no way to confirm that it actually even happened.

While the West, and the US in particular, rush to accuse the Syrian government of an alleged chemical attack in the rebel-held town of Douma, the UN has admitted that it is unable to “independently verify the allegations.”

“We’re not in a position at this point to independently verify the allegations [about the alleged chemical attack in Douma], but, obviously, any allegation of continued use of chemical weapons is extremely, extremely troubling,” Stephane Dujarric, the spokesman for UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, said in a statement on Monday evening.

On Saturday, several rebel-linked activists, including the controversial White Helmets group, accused the Syrian government of carrying out a chemical attack that allegedly affected dozens of civilians in the town of Douma in Eastern Ghouta, some 10km from Damascus.

The White Helmets are ISIS-linked and backed by Israel – that’s why they’re controversial. There are a lot of pictures and video of them working with ISIS, as well as evidence that they are themselves actually members of ISIS.

The West swiftly reacted to the report with pointing the finger at Damascus and Moscow. US President Donald Trump hastily called the alleged incident a “humanitarian disaster for no reason whatsoever,” warning that a “big price” would be paid.

US envoy to the UN Nikki Haley considers the alleged chemical attack in the enclave as a proven fact, and blames Russian “obstructionism” and the “monster” Bashar Assad for the incident. The US envoy stressed that if the UN refuses to follow the US lead and intervene in Syria due to “Russia’s obstructionism,” Washington would respond alone.

On Monday, the US president also promised to decide on potential actions against Syria within 24-48 hours, adding that “nothing is off the table.”

“We have a lot of options militarily, and we’ll be letting you know pretty soon,” Trump said at a meeting with military commanders.

Syria and Russia have dismissed all accusations, calling the reports merely fake news that is aimed solely at helping terrorists and justifying potential strikes against Syrian government forces. Moscow noted that it had repeatedly warned about false-flag attacks being prepared in recent months.

I don’t know if Russia is saying it is a fake event or a false flag.

I think they’re where I am – it could be either.

There is video of the alleged event.

But it could easily just be staged.

Or it could be real, but done by someone other than Assad.

What I will tell you once again is that there is absolutely zero reason that Assad would do this.

What I will also tell you once again is that even if he did do it, it is none of our business as Americans.
