The Iranians join the Russians in pushing the idea that the UK staged the latest Syrian chemical attack, and blamed it on poor Assad. For the unenlightened, Press TV is another official Iranian outlet. As I’ve posted elsewhere, let’s see it! Lay it all out, Adlai Stevenson style, at the UN.
Russia says it has “irrefutable” evidence that a recent suspected chemical attack in the Damascus suburb town of Douma, which was used as a pretext for missile strikes against Syria, was a “false flag” operation orchestrated by British spy services.
Russia’s Representative at the Organisation for Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) Alexander Shulgin made the remarks during a meeting of the organization’s executive council in The Hague on Monday.
“We have not just a ‘high level of confidence,’ as our Western partners uniformly put it; we have irrefutable proof that there was no chemical attack in Douma on April 7,” Shulgin said, describing the incident as a “pre-planned false flag attack by the British security services, which could have also been aided by their allies in Washington.”
