The “Editorial Board” (whoever that is), of the Washington Post wrote an article October 23, 2014 titled:
“Obama gives Syria’s Assad another pass on chemical weapons”
First off, lets break down this completely insulting article.
The first paragraph reads:
In this paragraph, the Washington Post uses the word “regime” as if it didnt represent the people of Syria. To the contrary. When the FSA (Free..or Fake… Syrian Army), Daesh-ISIL or whoever the foreign mercenaries are move into an area, the local Syrians move out and leave their homes. Towns have become as ghost towns.
Once the Syrian Arab Army liberates a town, the civilians who had left (because of the threat of beheading, rape, execution, crucification, etc), return to their homes to find many of them looted, booby-trapped, or worse destroyed.
I have shown in previous articles how elated the people are, but since I am proving a point against one of the US’s biggest propaganda machines beating the drums of war, I’ll show it again.
Syrian “sources” are FSA supported and US backed rebels (better known as terrorists to Syrians). The US main stream media likes to call John Kerry and John McCains boys “activists” or “sources.” They are not Syrians, and do NOT represent the people of Syria.
Beware of where their information comes from when they lack showing a real Syrian, with a real name, from a real town in Syria. Blanket statements from “sources” or “activists” just dont count when you need to be credible from such a large paper.
At the end of this paragraph, you see the key word “ALLEGEDLY” used when describing chlorine gas used against rebel positions.
Please, think about this a minute.
~ Why would the Syrian government use chlorine gas on rebels when they could just drop bombs and blow them to pieces?
~ After all, one may live from a chlorine attack. Pretty sure they would be dead after a missile hit them. Hmmm, potential life? Or death.
You decide what the Syrian military would do here. I know what I would do, and using chlorine would NOT be my choice!.
Lets examine the play on words in the next paragraph, shall we? The word “resort” as used in the above paragraph implies no other option. Trying to infer they have to gas rebel held areas.
Again, Im pretty sure a missile would be a more definitive way to kill. This is almost laughable in how ridiculous it sounds. Those poor rebels being hit with chlorine, they may actually LIVE!
The third paragraph is very carefully worded. “…confirmation” that toxic chemicals were used…” without saying exactly who used them. So far, Washington DC, or Israel or even the Washington Post has shown any proof as to who used chemical weapons in Syria ever.
The above mentioned still claim Bashar al-Assad used Sarin gas on civilians last August without offering a shred of proof except for the words of the foreign terrorists who make the claims.
Play close attention to the small statement “…making verification virtually impossible.”
Its a bit hard for the UN or other investigative teams entering Syria to do an investigation when their members are murdered or kidnapped by rebels.
In the fourth paragraph, the unknown “Editorial Board” has written WITHOUT ANY PROOF that the…
“…Assad regime is ONCE AGAIN (implying they did it before), blatantly violating the “red line” drawn by Mr (not president), Obama…”
This statement shows the “Editorial Board” from the Washington Post is incapable of researching any facts before they print.
Again, a HUGE problem when trying to show credibility.
First, lets look at who uses chemicals in Syria…
Second, lets listen to Carla Del Ponte from the UN herself, and what her investigation showed up. She clearly states their investigations showed the rebels used Sarin, and there was “NO EVIDENCE” the government of Syria used it at all.
The Washington Post would have you believe that Bashar al-Assad would gas his own supporters while the UN team is there to investigate. My how the Post will lie.
Lets also not forget the study done by MIT in the United States.
The authors concluded that sarin gas…
“could not possibly have been fired at East Ghouta from the ‘heart’, or from the Eastern edge, of the Syrian government controlled area shown in the intelligence map published by the White House on August 30, 2013.”
“This mistaken intelligence could have led to an unjustified US military action based on false intelligence. A proper vetting of the fact that the munition was of such short range would have led to a completely different assessment of the situation from the gathered data,”
…the report states.
The authors emphasize that the UN independent assessment of the range of the chemical munition is in “exact agreement” with their findings.
The report goes on to challenge the US Secretary of State’s key assessments of the chemical attack that he presented to the American people on August 30th and to the Foreign Relations Committee on September 3rd in an effort to muster a military attack on Syria.
“My view when I started this process was that it couldn’t be anything but the Syrian government behind the attack. But now I’m not sure of anything. The administration narrative was not even close to reality. Our intelligence cannot possibly be correct,”
Postol told McClatchy publication.

The Washington Post merely acts like a parrot of the US government, repeating anything the US government says (being fabricated or not).
Statements based on “sources” or “activists” doesnt lend too much towards their reliability of reporting the truth.
I especially like this paragraph. The poor rebels and corrupt implicit Turkish government want a no-fly zone and they arent getting their way.
Well, isnt this a bummer?
The rebels and the Turkish government would like the United States to illegally attack the very forces that have been fighting terrorism for 3 years now.
So while all of this is going on, the Syrian Army is just going to use some chlorine (household bleach) willy nilly when they can just kill with missiles. Well, this makes perfect sense, doesnt it?
Too bad for the government of Turkey who is dripping with Syrian blood, and the “rebels” (AKA foreign mercenaries or terrorists), who have caused rivers of Syrian blood to flow.
Its unbelievable the garbage written that claims to be news. It can hardly be entertainment to anyone other than the military industrial complex, and those paid HUGE sums of money when wars break out.
“A pass” on chemical weapons used in Syria from sources who couldnt be trusted to carry a laundry basket across the street. Makes perfect sense, but only one who is paid to report flat out lies as the Washington Post has here.
If people wouldnt just take some publications at face value, but would do a bit of research for themselves, the world may be a more peaceful place. At least the things happening in it would be exposed for what they are, and DIS-information (like this garbage published by the Washington Post), would immediately be known as outright lies. I guess they dont care anymore if their articles can hold a teaspoon of water, just so long as they mimic the corrupt politicians and the corporate elite they serve like the good little slaves they are. Its a shame really, but most of all, SHAME ON THEM!
On a footnote… The “Institute for the Study of War (ISW) may be even worse than the Washington Post! I nearly laughed myself out of the chair when I saw their “sources” named in this bogus report. “Sham News Network” is one of the biggest FSA sites reporting faked stories for some time now, backed by Saudi and Qatars money Im sure. As a matter of fact, I think Ill do a bit of an investigation of who they are, and share it with everyone. I think this may be interesting 😉
I’ll leave you with an interview conducted by the Turkish media with President Bashar al-Assad in April of 2013.
In this interview, you will see the eloquent way in which he speaks. You will see a confident man, that speaks more truth in this 39 minute video, than you have ever see in the last three years of reporting by such “sources” as the Washington Post.
God Bless and protect you President Dr Bashar al-Assad
