US Backed Plan for Chemical Weapon Attack in Syria to Be Blamed on Assad

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Editorial Note —

Early this morning Middle Eastern time, US President Donald Trump ordered a cruise missile strike on a Syrian Shayrat airbase outside of Homs, from which, according to the President’s statement the alleged chemical attack was launched. Due to the lack of evidence proving that the attack was conducted by the Syrian Arab Army, under the command of the Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, and the plethora of easily accessible online data (videos, pictures, social media posts) that show dubious evidence that the attack happened (but was rather a ‘false flag’ or staged attack), we feel obliged to republish a 2013 article from Daily Mail, that provides evidence of the then US government plan to support a chemical weapon attack on Syria and blame it on Assad to justify ‘humanitarian intervention’.

Another reason for republishing this article is the uncanny resemblance of the events preceding the alleged Syrian gas attack, the current military situation on the ground in Syria, and the US response to the events of over 20 years ago in former Yugoslavia (Bosnia and the Serbian breakaway province of Kosovo and Metohija), as well as similar events and baseless accusations leading to the 2003 invasion of Iraq. For those who don’t remember or don’t have time to research, in Yugoslavia the only way for the US supported sides to win, in both Bosnia and Kosovo, was to invoke the foreign intervention as they were militarily losing on the ground.

US 1995 intervention in Bosnia was also triggered during crucial phase of negotiations that aimed to end the war, and where the US supported side was in a much weaker negotiating position. Similar situation is found right now in Syria, where the Syrian Arab Army is having an upper hand and is close to winning a war against a gamut of terrorist factions in a nearly 7-years long war, while two separate rounds of peace negotiations are going on in Brussels and Astana, heavily slated against the so-called opposition and the terrorists factions that are taking part.

In January 29, 2013, Britain’s most popular Daily Newspaper, in its online version Dailymail.co.uk published an article titled:

U.S. ‘backed plan to launch chemical weapon attack on Syria and blame it on Assad’s regime’

A few days later they pulled the article.

What the reason was for the deletion remains unclear. The article was published at this URL:


There exists a cached version of the article which can be found here:


This article was first published by Global Research in June 2013 the author of which is the truthnewsinternational blogsite.

One day later, on January 30, a moderated news board thread was created, which is still online, at Mail Online about that article. Thread: Syrian WMD False Flag – Are False Flags a way of life now?

In their initial article Mail Online refers to an Infowars.com article (dated January 28, 2013), that’s where they probably found the information on the leaked e-mail and other documents.

CapitalBay (who published the wrong areal pictures of the school in Sandy Hook), Mail Online, Infowars, Yahoo News India, News Track India, Whale.to, Philippine Times, Uganda News, LiveLeak, Truth Media TV and others all claim in their mirrored articles that the alleged e-mail from Britam’s David Goulding to Philip Doughty was dated December 25, 2012.

However, at Neftegaz.ru (translated with Google) there also exists another version of the alleged e-mail. There the e-mail is dated December 24, 2012.

Whether the content of the alleged e-mail is correct, that’s open for debate. Fact is that PressTV has an article online which supports the claims in the alleged e-mail. And RT‘s article from last year (June 10, 2012) still claims that “Syrian rebels aim to use chemical weapons,” to then blame Assad for it. Those weapons came from Libya, according to RT. This begs the question: Did Christopher Stevens know about those weapons when he died in the CIA villa in Benghazi last year?

But why was the article pulled by Mail Online?

Why do there exist at least 2 versions of the same alleged e-mail?

And what about Britam admitting that they were hacked, according to Ruvr.co.uk (The Voice of Russia)?

But there’s also this, according to Mail Online it was a Malaysian hacker who got to the alleged e-mail(s), while Infowars claims that the e-mail was “obtained by a hacker in Germany.”

Either way, whoever initiated the Britam e-mail escapade did a good job at fooling both mainstream and alternative news outlets because it’s a real mess and few know what really happened and why.

Yet it’s ironic that Mail Online did not delete their other article where they wrote about the UN’s Carla Del Ponte who claims that Syrian rebels are responsible for “sarin gas attacks, which had been blamed on Assad’s troops.” The same rebels who now receive resources from the EU and the U.S., since the EU is buying oil from those “rebels” and the US is arming them for a proxy war as the Washington Post describes it.

Earlier it was reported that Israel had granted oil exploration rights inside Syria, in the occupied Golan Heights, to Genie Energy who’s shareholders include Rupert Murdoch and Lord Jacob Rothschild.
