Pentagon Threatens Wider War on Syria: Sarin Gas Pretext Exposed

The Donald Trump administration threatened a dangerous escalation on June 26 when Press Secretary Sean Spicer claimed Syrian government forces were potentially planning to stage a chemical attack and Washington would make Syria pay a heavy price.

The announcement was made without a shred of evidence. Instead, there were vague claims that U.S. intelligence had ai???identified potential preparationsai??? for a chemical attack. These were all too familiar, after the phony pretext for the invasion of Iraq in 2003.

The White House statement was immediately followed by a Twitter statement from U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley: ai???Any further attacks done to the people of Syria will be blamed on Assad, but also on Russia and Iran.ai??? She was expressing Washingtonai??i??s frustration that despite its bombing sorties and despite pulling 10 other countries into the war, Washingtonai??i??s plan for regime change has failed.
