World War III: The False Narrative that Fuels Conflict in Syria and Beyond

Posted by M. C. on April 12, 2018

Quick catch-up:

Amid uprisings in Libya and Egypt, in 2011 Syrians rebelled against their own oppressive government.

Documents from Wikileaks show that the U.S. State Department wanted to help rebels overthrow Syrian ruler Assad in order to strengthen Israel’s position against Iran.

Iran, Syria, and Russia are the main allies in the region with conflicting interests of the USA and Israel.

Turkey is harder to peg. They were once on decent terms with the Assad regime, then called for his ouster. Turkey helped train rebels, as well as the controversial rescue group the “White Helmets.”

Turkey considers the Kurds terrorists, while the U.S. arms and supports the Kurds who led the main assault on the Syrian stronghold of ISIS.

Some sources claim Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed in Libya while overseeing weapons transfers from Libya to Turkey and Syria to arm the rebels.

368 days ago, we were having this exact same discussion after the first alleged chemical attack by Assad on his own people. The Daily Mail reported but later recanted, information from a source who claimed that the U.S. planned a false flag chemical attack to justify military action in Syria.

Leaked emails have allegedly proved that the White House gave the green light to a chemical weapons attack in Syria that could be blamed on Assad’s regime and in turn, spur international military action in the devastated country.

CNN reported in 2012 that America was involved in training the rebels to secure and monitor chemical weapons sites.

The United States and some European allies are using defense contractors to train Syrian rebels on how to secure chemical weapons stockpiles in Syria, a senior U.S. official and several senior diplomats told CNN Sunday.

The training, which is taking place in Jordan and Turkey, involves how to monitor and secure stockpiles and handle weapons sites and materials, according to the sources. Some of the contractors are on the ground in Syria working with the rebels to monitor some of the sites, according to one of the officials.

This confirms that rebel forces had access to chemical weapons and that the U.S. helped familiarize rebel groups with storing and transporting the weapons…

Here is an extreme simplification of who is fighting who:

Turkey backed rebels: fighting Assad, ISIS, and the Kurds.

U.S. backed Kurds: fighting ISIS and Turkey backed rebels.

U.S. backed rebels (which might include al-Qaeda affiliates): fighting Assad.

Assad, backed by Russia and Iran: fighting everyone.

ISIS: fighting everyone (except some ISIS-friendly rebels).
