Lupo, "After all, he got rid of all his chemical weapons, didn't he?. Dunno why he had any in the first place seeing as how he's such a good guy and would never ever use them, and I don't for one moment believe that he could have kept some hidden away." Found those weapons of mass destruction yet?

When I posted that article, I very nearly wrote, "Cue JW, Iolabe, Joey and their mates." No, I thought, let them have their say, and, lo and behold, they did. I'm ok with that, I believe whatever I consider to have the ring of credibility to it. I'm prepared to believe anything in this crazy world (except the existence of a supreme being, or a green and red spotted rhino loose in Glasgow - for example). Moreover, I'm prepared to believe that once some folk have made their minds up that Assad's a great guy h ell bent on looking after the welfare of his citizens and would never, ever barrel bomb them, then there's absolutely no way that they're going to believe that he could do anything as dastardly as use chemical weaponry on them. After all, he got rid of all his chemical weapons, didn't he?. Dunno why he had any in the first place seeing as how he's such a good guy and would never ever use them, and I don't for one moment believe that he could have kept some hidden away. Yeah, right.

You know there was a time when France held it's head high and was not a part of the US lapdog club along with UK and Germany under Merkel. Alas no more, Why is it that none of these countries are calling for that Independent inquirey we were all hoping for, No nor won't be, the hologram that is Machon will wander along like the zombie that he so patently is and do the bidding of Merkel and Juncker. He will become known as the one who constantly nods his head DeGaule to a large extent kept Britain out of the Common Market back in the sixties, as he suspected having lost any influence of their own, they would now become a Trojan horse for America. He must be spinning in his grave at the present time when you consider how the socialist Holland has sold out everything that was peculiar to France and it's independent foreign policy. So the World has regressed forthy years, in so far as there is no common ground between the west and Russia/China. So be it then, Maybe now it is the Americans turn to implode, not so far fetched when you consider that 20% of the population are illiterate. And 24% of US children go to bed hungry every night. No shortage of extra billions to be wasted on defence though. If ever madness existed on a human scale this surely has to be it's finest hour.

Lupo, France as well as Airstrip One are supporting the US and Saudi in wanting the Syrian President and their elected Government replaced. We also know that they will lie as they see fit to effect regime Change as has happened recently in Iraq (WOMD) and Libya (No Fly Zone). They are not invited into Syria, a sovereign nation, and are invaders pure and simple; they are not respecting international law. The area where the supposed chemical attack happened is in the control of Nusra Front terrorists and on the ground they and the White Helmets control access, filming and interviews. Assad said this recently: ?We formally sent a letter to the United Nations, we asked them in that letter to send a delegation in order to investigate what happened in Khan Shaykhun,? Assad said. ?Of course till this moment they didn't send (the experts), because the West and the US blocked any delegation from coming,? he added. ?Actually, since the first attack a few years ago that happened in Aleppo by the terrorists against our army, we asked the United Nations to send investigation delegation in order to prove what we said about the terrorists having gases used against our army, and later many incidents happened in that way, and they didn't send any delegation. It's the same now,? Assad has repeatedly said that no chemical attack ever took place in Idlib. He acknowledged that the Syrian government carried out airstrikes against Syrian Al-Qaeda branch, the Nusra Front terrorists, in Khan Shaykhun on April 4, but stressed that no chemical weapons were used. The president pointed out that all the information about the Idlib incident the world currently has originates from the White Helmets group, which he called ?humanitarian Al Qaeda,? that has a rich history of making fakes.

The Sarin was most likely supplied to the terrorist 'rebels' by Turkey, another obvious false flag. They need to come up with new ideas of how to trick us into war, we don't fall for their old tactics anymore. They could get some ideas by watching The Running Man.
17:55 26/04/2017 Syrian sarin
"France says it has evidence showing the Syrian air force "undoubtedly" dropped bombs containing the nerve agent Sarin on a rebel-held town last month. Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault told reporters that samples taken from the scene bore the "signature" of Sarin produced by Syria's government. At least 87 people were killed in the incident in Khan Sheikhoun, according to an opposition-run health authority. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has dismissed it as a "fabrication". He insists the government has never used chemical weapons and that it turned over all of its stocks in 2013, after it was blamed by Western powers for a Sarin attack on rebel-held suburbs of Damascus that left hundreds dead. Hundreds of people suffered symptoms consistent with reaction to a nerve agent after what the opposition and the US say was a Syrian Air Force attack on Khan Sheikhoun on 4 April. Last week, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) said analysis of bio-medical samples collected from three victims had presented "incontrovertible" proof that they were exposed to Sarin or a Sarin-like substance. Wednesday's declassified French intelligence report concludes that the Sarin was manufactured by the Syrian government. "We know, from a certain source, that the process of fabrication of the samples taken is typical of the method developed in Syrian laboratories," said Mr Ayrault. "This method is the signature of the regime and it is what enables us to establish the responsibility of the attack. We know because we kept samples from previous attacks that we were able to use for comparison," he added. The report says France - which backs the opposition to Mr Assad - obtained environmental samples collected at one of the impact points of the suspected attack, and that its analysis revealed the presence of Sarin, the secondary product diisopropyl methylphosphonate (DIMP) and hexamine. "The process of synthesizing Sarin, developed by the [Syrian government's] Scientific Studies and Research Centre (SSRC) and employed by the Syrian armed forces and security services, involves the use of hexamine as a stabilizer. DIMP is also known as a by-product generated by this process," it adds. The document concludes that the Sarin from Khan Sheikhoun was produced using the same manufacturing process as that found in an unexploded grenade allegedly dropped by a government helicopter on rebel-held Saraqeb on 29 April 2013. It also says that rebel and jihadist groups operating in the area around Khan Sheikhoun did not have the capability to employ a neurotoxic agent or access to aircraft. The theory of an attack perpetrated by so-called Islamic State is also not credible because the group is not present in the region, it adds. "Neither do the French services assess that the theory of a staged attack or manipulation by the opposition is credible, particularly because of the massive influx in a very limited time towards hospitals in Syria and Turkey, and the simultaneous, massive uploading of videos showing symptoms of the use of neurotoxic agents." The US has carried out a cruise missile strike on a airbase where it said the aircraft that bombed Khan Sheikhoun took off and blacklisted 271 SSRC employees.

No changing of your predictions allowed! " By Guy Faulconbridge | LONDON British Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservatives have almost twice as much voter support as the opposition Labour Party ahead of a June 8 election, a lead equal to that commanded by Margaret Thatcher before her 1983 landslide victory, Ipsos MORI said. Since May surprised rivals and financial markets by calling a snap election, opinion polls have shown May has far greater support than Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and that she is likely to win a big majority in the 650-seat lower house of parliament. An Ipsos MORI telephone poll of 1,004 adults conducted on April 21-25 put the Conservative lead at 23 percentage points, while a Panelbase online poll of 1,026 people on April 20-24 put their lead on 22 percentage points. "The Conservatives are starting the campaign matching the biggest lead we have ever recorded for them during an election campaign - which was back in 1983 ahead of Thatcher's victory," Gideon Skinner, head of political research at Ipsos MORI, told Reuters. Thatcher, riding a wave of popularity after the Falklands War against Argentina, won a 144-seat majority in that election against Labour's Michael Foot, whose left-wing socialist manifesto was branded by a party colleague as "the longest suicide note in history". May's predecessor, David Cameron, won a majority of 12 seats in a 2015 election, the first overall Conservative victory since Thatcher's successor, John Major, won in 1992. MAY'S GAMBLE After winning Britain's top job in the political turmoil which followed the June 23 Brexit vote, May repeatedly ruled out a snap election until last Tuesday, when she announced outside her 10 Downing Street residence she would seek a new mandate. May is betting that the weakness of Labour leader Corbyn and the unexpected resilience of the British economy since the Brexit vote will bolster her majority in parliament ahead of potentially disruptive EU divorce talks. "These numbers suggest that the immediate public reaction has been just what she was probably hoping for: there are no signs of a negative reaction to her calling the election, while leadership and competence are going to be important factors in this election," said Skinner from Ipsos MORI. The Ipsos MORI poll put May's party up 6 percentage points from March on 49 percent, Labour down 4 percentage points on 26, the Liberal Democrats unchanged on 13 percent and the United Kingdom Independence Party down 2 percentage points on 4 percent. The poll showed 61 percent of voters thought May would be the most capable prime minister, well ahead of the 23 percent who said Corbyn would be. Ipsos MORI also found that 63 percent of those expressing a voting intention had already made up their mind, with 78 percent of Conservative voters and 56 percent of Labour supporters saying they had made their decision. The Panelbase poll put May's party on 49 percent, up 10 percentage points since it last polled in January, Labour down 4 points to 27 percent and UKIP down 9 points to 5 percent. Amid concerns about voter fatigue with politics after a 2014 independence referendum in Scotland, the 2015 general election and the 2016 Brexit vote, May has cautioned against complacency, saying she is not taking anything for granted. Skinner declined to predict whether May would win a majority to rival Thatcher's more than three decades ago. "I won't be making any projections on seats or majorities partly because it is a snap election, so it wouldn't be surprising to see some fluctuation in public opinion in the campaign," he said. "But clearly it is looking very positive for the Conservatives." (Writing by Guy Faulconbridge; Editing by Gareth Jones)
