As the US military occupation forces are preparing to withdraw its troops from Syria, it seems little has changed in Washington’s vision of the conflict.
According to warmonger specialist John Bolton, the Assad “regime” is still the problem, and Tomahawks are going to rain on Syria if WMD’s are used.
The latest revealed threat of a strike on Syria was on Saturday made by US National Security Advisor John Bolton on his way to Israel.
Despite President Donald Trump’s announcement he will withdraw the 2,000 US troops stationed in Syria being perceived as a sudden change in course on the ground, it appears that it has hardly affected Washington’s Syria policy in general.
While the schedule of the planned pullout remains unspecified, Bolton reminded that the US would hold Syrian President Bashar Assad accountable for any incidents involving chemical weapons.
It wasn’t the first time the official has promised a “much stronger” response to chemical weapons use in Syria. He made a similar statement back in September 2018.
The USA has squarely blamed Damascus for almost any chemical weapons incidents in Syria while refusing to consider any other side as a culprit. The evidence that did not fit the accepted narrative has been routinely ignored by Washington and its evil allies.
In April 2018, the F-UK-US coalition launched a massive strike, in which they targeted the Syrian government military and civilian facilities. The strike was conducted following an alleged chemical weapons attack in the town of Douma, 10 km north of Damascus.
At that time, Washington and its allies chose not to wait for an international chemical weapons watchdog’s inspection to begin.
A fact-finding mission sent by the OPCW to Douma eventually provided mixed results as it said that while no nerve agents were discovered on the site of the alleged attack,
A year earlier, a chemical attack in the northern city of Khan Shaykhun was also squarely blamed on Assad. Washington similarly launched a missile attack on a Syrian Army air base days after the incident without waiting for any investigation.
