Editor,

Praise be to God that the ugly war in Syria seems to be nearing its end. The secular, Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad has recently liberated the last major urban stronghold of the ISIS and Al-Qaeda affiliated rebels in Eastern Ghouta.

All that being said, it’s more than a little suspect that mainstream media outlets in the West are now accusing the Syrian government of using chemical weapons against civilians.



Moreover, there seems to be an odd pattern developing where every time the Syrian government is on the verge of delivering a major defeat to the terrorist rebels, they suddenly succumb to the urge to use chemical weapons on civilians, which inevitably provokes an backlash from the U.S. government. If we are going to seriously investigate this crime, then let us start by asking ourselves who benefits from this latest attack, because whoever stands to gain the most from this new development will more than likely be the perpetrator.

Back in 2013 the American investigative journalist Seymour Hersh revealed something quite shocking about the rebels fighting to topple the government of Assad.

Hersh wrote, “The American intelligence agencies produced a series of highly classified reports...citing evidence that the al-Nusra Front, a jihadi group affiliated with al-Qaida, had mastered the mechanics of creating sarin and was capable of manufacturing it in quantity.”

According to Hersh, the rebels are in possession of chemical weapons — and isn’t it true that desperate people do desperate things? Wouldn’t the rebels have a strong motive to try and pin a chemical attack on President Assad in order to provoke a U.S. attack on Syria in order to save their hides?

At the moment the world is on edge waiting to see if President Trump is foolish enough to fall into the trap that these terrorists in Syria have set for him. If President Trump succumbs to the pressure of those calling for military action to be taken against the Syrian government, then it will be a colossal blunder with tragic consequences.

As former Vice President Joe Biden and current Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard have both pointed out, there are no “moderate” rebels fighting in Syria, rather President Assad is fighting ISIS and Al-Qaeda. God willing the United States government can practice restraint in this crucial moment so that the Syrian Arab Army and their allies can finish off the remaining terrorists causing trouble in their country.
