The tiny victims of 'Assad's new gas attacks': Little boy is among the dead and other children [tr]
UK Daily Mail ^ | February 26, 2018 | Julian Robinson

Horrifying pictures have emerged showing young victims of an alleged chemical attack on a rebel-held village in Syria.

A rescuer is shown cradling a little boy in his arms after the child was killed during airstrikes on al-Shifuniyah in Syria's Eastern Ghouta.

Medics say the youngster was poisoned to death in a gas attack as dictator Bashar al-Assad's forces continue their deadly assault on the region.

Shocking photos also show children and babies gasping for air and using breathing apparatus at a make-shift hospital.

I wouldn’t use those pictures as a reason to start WWIII.

Get the f*** out of here. Everybody wake the f*** uo. Turkey is launching a major offensive on another country. Turkey is becoming a terrible problem. Gives a f*** what Assad is doing.

Are you crying for the people being slaughtered by turkey? In Afrin? Some people here don’t keep up with political events and then when they talk they sound like...well.

I very much hope Trump doesn’t do a f****** thing about this. Because who the f*** even knows if it’s true. We got an A nato member slaughtering people. Wake the f*** up some of you

Wouldn’t come to any conclusions. Sounds like the rebels might have been holding these folks hostages.....attempting to blame it on Assad. That’s been their pattern in the past.

The propaganda war is in full swing.

President Trump’s comments from Friday are in this blog post along with Peter Hitchens column paragraph from the weekend regarding the “Ghouta Pocket” and how those in there are the same Al-Qaeda who brought down “the Twin Towers” on 9/11.

The Syrians are fighting the Bin-Ladenists and some Islamic State in that pocket. And now they spin propaganda about gas attacks and other wrongs done by the Syrian regime against them.

The problem for the NeverTrumpers is WHY BOTHER - why would Assad now use those weapons, since the war is about over for him, with him winning.

Laughable. What a farce. I always enjoy these gas stories. People treating “sarin” with handkerchiefs and bottled water. As best these people were pepper sprayed just before the camera started rolling.

And always the nerve gas, but never anyone doing the funky chicken on the floor.

And also, gas is hard to use well and you need a lot of it. Assad seems to “use” it randomly. A shell here, 6 months later a bomb there...etc.
It doesn’t pass the straight face test that the one thing we say will make us remove Assad and attack Syrian forces is a gas attack. So knowing he occasionally fires a random gas round for no identifiable purpose.

This is retarded and right up there with the Spanish sinking the USS Maine, German soldiers bayoneting Belgian babies in WWI, Poles attacking a German border post as the cause of the 1939 nazi attack, Gulf of Tonkin, Kuwaiti babies taken from incubators, and WMDs.
Propaganda sure is fun!

^ This + 1 How do we know this isn’t another CIA scheme to escalate a war. At this point I wouldn’t put it past them.

I don’t believe anything in the news any more. The only positive press President Trump ever received was for using our military against Syria. There are far too many dishonest people and corrupt organizations who want us in that war for me to believe any potential false flag from a photograph.

Sadly true. Some people are gullible and easily manipulated by propaganda. And it’s interesting how our “well-meaning” mainstream media are also trying to advance this “let’s bomb Syria” narrative.

And we know the media has the best interests of Trump and the American people in their hearts. /sarc

The deep state want Trump gone, too. And they’ll goad him into wars then impeach him for going to war without congressional approval.

Great post! I wrote a paper on wartime propaganda and you pretty much covered the gamut! One of the most effective propaganda campaigns was run by the Brits before WWI and featured a (French or Belgian) nurse who treated wounded, etc. The Germans arrested her and shot her as a spy, and MI5 used that to whip up fury in Britain as they claimed she was just a nurse and the press published drawings of an innocent woman being murdered. MI5 used that to recruit troops and enter the war in Europe. Turns out that she really was a spy and at the time the rules of war were in favor of the Germans as they had a trial.

Re: Trump bombing the Syrians for the supposed Sarin attack, I never thought he had positive intel that it wasn't fake. I think he didn;t care, and used the opportunity to show the world that there's a new sheriff in town. Pretty effective IMO!
