Iraqi WMDs All Over Again: The Latest US Threats to Syria - Sputnik International

Iraqi WMDs All Over Again: The Latest US Threats to Syria - Sputnik International

Here we go again... "US warns Syria over 'potential' plan for chemical attack" was the dramatic news headline which greeted me when I checked out the BBC News website first thing Tuesday morning, June 26.

A White House statement said that the US had "identified potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack by the Assad regime that would likely result in the mass murder of civilians, including innocent children." It added, "The activities are similar to preparations the regime made before its 4 April 2017 chemical weapons attack." The US made it clear that if the devilish plan, which it had "identified" was carried out, it wouldn't just hold the Syrian government responsible, but those other all-round "baddies" Russia and Iran too.
