Retired US Army Colonel and former chief of staff to US Secretary of State Colin Powell, Lawrence Wilkerson weighs in on Trump’s recent bombing of Syria.
He is of the mind that the sarin gas attack was a “Gulf of Tonkin”, “Iraq WMD” hoax, as a pretense to make a strike, for the purpose of gain “higher ground” in the upcoming peace talks about Syria.
The so-called sarin “provocation” amounted to less casualties than the collateral deaths of many dozens of US attacks, including the US bombing of Mosul, in Iraq last month. He completely picks apart the official narrative about the sarin gas attack and its alleged motivation.
We also hear statements from Russia’s Deputy Ambassador to the UN, Vladimir Safronikov, who lambasts the lack of any impartial investigation of the sarin attack, who described it a “Flagrant violation of international law and an act of aggression. We strongly condemn the illegitimate actions by the US. The consequences, for regional and international stability could be extremely serious.”
