I just cannot believe that Bashar al-Assad ordered his military commanders to use chemical weapons on Syrian citizens in Eastern Ghouta. Nor should you believe it either. The reason is simple. The "evidence" to support the claims against Assad, has been provided by the very same people, who told you that Saddam Hussein not only had weapons of mass destruction, but that he had used them on his own people. Our lying governments and media knew that he had no such weapons. How did they know? Well our delightful leaders gave him weapons of mass destruction back in the 1980's and he had used them all on his neighbours in Iran.  Our politicians and their lackeys in the media also KNEW it was a lie that Saddam could decide to attack the UK and achieve a strike in 45 minutes. Remember the 45 minute claim? Think about that for a second. The media and the political class knew it was a lie, but rinsed and repeated it anyway.

The same politicians and journalists (the very same) repeated over and over again in 1990/1991, that Iraqi soldiers had taken babies out of incubators in a Kuwaiti hospital, removed the incubators, and left the babies to die. It was a double whopper with bacon, extra large fries and a chocolate milkshake. Many journalists knew that the source of the story Nayirah al-Ṣabaḥ (early crisis actress?) was in reality the daughter of the Kuwaiti ambassador to the United States, but kept that out of their reports and instead rushed to support Bush the Elder's march to war. The media the media the media. 

The media was at it again in 2010, rinsing and repeating the lies about Muammar Gaddafi's government in Libya. Oh the lies that were told at the UN, by Rothschild Zionists like then French Foreign Minister Alain Juppé, who introduced Resolution 1973 (imposing a no-fly zone over Libya, and laying the groundwork for overthrowing the government) boldly claiming that it was a "matter of hours" before Gaddafi razed cities to the ground and killed hundreds of thousands of Libyans. It was a lie! The UK's Foreign Affairs Select Committee found it to be a lie in their review of the circumstances that led to the UK/NATO intervention in Libya. According to Wikipedia:

In 2015 through 2016 the British parliament's  Foreign Affairs Select Committee conducted an extensive and highly critical inquiry into the British involvement in the civil war. It concluded that the early threat to civilians had been overstated and that the significant Islamist element in the rebel forces had not been recognised, due to an intelligence failure. By summer 2011 the initial limited intervention to protect Libyan civilians had become a policy of regime change. However that new policy did not include proper support and for a new government, leading to a political and economic collapse in Libya and the growth of ISIL in North Africa.

Lies, more lies and damned lies, sold to the British people through the pages of their newspapers and television news channels like SKY and the BBC. So you'll forgive me dear reader, when I take with a large pinch of salt, this weeks claims that Bashar al-Assad is burning the skin off of young babies in Eastern Ghouta, because his regime is truly evil. No I am not having any of that auld bollox. The very same presenters, the very same journalists and many of the very same politicians and political parties who lied their arses off in the past, are doing it again. Assad and the Syrian people have been under siege for most of this decade, from Wahhabi beheading enthusiast nutters, armed to the teeth, financed and trained by the intelligence agencies of the US, UK, France and Israel. He is NOT murdering innocent civilians and he is most definitely NOT instructing his military to use chlorine gas on children.
