Washington’s wanton threats of violence against Iran and its recent assassination of one of Iran’s top military leaders stands as a shocking repudiation of international law and the UN Charter. It’s the kind of conduct more akin to an organized crime syndicate rather than a supposedly democratic state.
The UK, France and the US have stone-walled the emerging engineering and scientific reports produced by serious experts in their field, members of the FFM (Fact Finding Mission) team. Instead, NATO-aligned & sponsored blogs like Bellingcat have been instructed to counter the mounting evidence of the OPCW dereliction of duty while compromised media ensure the public is kept in the dark about the shifting narrative landscape.
In diplomatic terms, this indicated that China is very aware that the United States is holding back global progress toward peace and prosperity by way of its imperial model of governance.
The reason for the meeting was that western states in the Security Council refused to hold a formal meeting to hear very important views and recent developments in the so-called chemical dossier in the light of the statements of international expert Ian Henderson of Australian nationality, a member of the Fact-finding Commission of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, who went to Douma to investigate the false allegation regarding the use of chemical weapons in Douma.
I could go on, but I think you get the picture – bipartisan US administrations describe the Middle East and target regions as “uncivilised” but it is clear who are the real savages. Death is not a laughing matter, murder is a crime. They would do well to remember that.
The findings in the final FFM report were contradictory, were a complete turnaround with what the team had understood collectively during and after the Douma deployments and by the time of release of the interim report, in July 2018, our understanding was that we had serious misgivings that any chemical attack had occurred.
The Douma alleged “chemical weapon” furore has thrown the Syria narrative managers in Western corporate media into disarray. Their default defence mechanism has been to circle their wagons around the Syria “WMD” propaganda which has been instrumental in vilifying the Syrian government and allies.
At a religious summit in 2015, then-congressman Pompeo, apparently in reference to the fight against same-sex marriage, said Christians would continue the struggle until the rapture, which is the moment many evangelicals believe they will ascend to heaven.
Rob Macaire is the British Ambassador in Tehran. When news broke that Macaire had been arrested for allegedly inciting anti-government sentiment in the wake of the Ukrainian jet horror, I, like many others, took it for granted that the UK was up to its usual destabilisation tricks.
What we need is nothing less than an intellectual revolution that rearranges the priorities in our Arab world and eliminates the impurities that hampered our path, and eliminates the sanctity of many traditions that proved futile in the march of progress and prosperity, and establishment of a new culture. The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step, today we must be on the threshold of a deliberate, real and promising change for our Nation and its people.
