The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights based in the UK tracks the conflict in Syria through a network of sources.
But just who is this ‘Syrian Observatory for Human Rights’?
Zero Hedge report: US foreign policy is becoming so easy and predictable, even Derek Zoolander can do it.
Two weeks ago, when discussing the relentless attempts to provoke, or at least greenlight another quasi war with Syria’s president Assad, we wrote “one can be confident that the ISIS “campaign” will continue and get ever
closer to Damascus until yet another appropriately-framed YouTube clip appears and leads to another war with Assad.”
Fast forward to today, when precisely this script which by now everyone could predict, is being rerun.
According to Reuters, “a group monitoring the Syrian civil war said on Tuesday government forces carried out a poison gas attack that killed six people in the northwest, and medics posted videos of children suffering what they said was suffocation.” Of course it could be just a bunch of actors like in the summer of 2013, but that’s irrelevant – there is a YouTube clip out there and it is only a matter of time before John Kerry latches on to it as this year’s pretext to declare war on Syria.
Syria would laugh if it could, however it can’t: “a Syrian military source described the report of an attack in the village of Sarmin in Idlib province as propaganda. “We confirm that we would not use this type of weapon, and we don’t need to use it,” the source said.”
Too late: the “facts” are out there: “The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which tracks the conflict through a network of sources, said the six dead included a man, his wife and their three children. It cited medical sources as saying they died as a result of gas from barrel bombs dropped late on Monday and that the chemical used was likely chlorine. Dozens more were wounded in the attack, the Observatory said. Reuters could not independently verify the report.”
The propaganda is coming hot and heavy.
