The Douma Hoax

A years earlier article asked if Washington planned a major false flag incident in Syria.
They've been so many earlier, dating at least since the mid-19th century – the 9/11 mother of them all most destructive, a second Pearl Harbor launching endless wars of aggression, smashing one country after another.
Numerous earlier CW attacks in Syria, committed by US-supported terrorists, wrongfully blamed on Assad, were false flags.
Three major ones stand out – the August 2013 Ghouta area sarin gas attack, casualties grossly inflated. Britain and France estimated several hundreds. John Kerry falsely claimed over 1,400. Likely only scores were affected.
UN inspectors found no evidence of large numbers harmed or killed. Many questions remain unanswered to this day.
Ghouta was a classic false flag. At the time, I expected another major one ahead.
