A YEAR AFTER CALLING IDLIB “AL QAEDA'S LARGEST SAFE HAVEN SINCE 9/11,” THE US GOVT IS TRYING TO SAVE IT

As the Syrian government and its allies prepare to begin a military offensive against the last rebel-held province in the country, top U.S. government officials and even U.S. President Donald Trump have recently urged Syria to refrain from “recklessly” attacking the Idlib province, warning that it could result in a high civilian death toll. These recent statements of U.S. government officials have sought to portray Idlib as chiefly populated by civilians and benign opposition “rebels.”

Yet, just last year, one of the U.S. government’s top counterterrorism officials involved in the country’s Syria and Iraq policy stated on video that, in contrast to current government statements, Idlib is dominated by none other than the Al Qaeda terrorist group and that the province should be a major focus of U.S. counterterrorism policy given the threat that Idlib represents to global efforts to fight terrorism.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: the US government doesn't want the combined forces of Russia, Syria, and Iran, to gut Idlib of terrorists, because it is the US government which is funding, arming, and supporting those terrorists as a "base" from which the US can reach out, and destroy more of Syria, even when time and logic have proved this a thankless task in all the years in which Syria has been at war, a war essentially designed and operated by US-funded interests.

The way the term "chemical attack" is being bandied about by our UN Ambassador, Nikki Haley, is a clear telegraphing of what US interests, most probably the White Helmets, and their ilk are going to do so, by creating such a false image of a chemical attack, most probably against children, staged as the "justification" for US troops going into Syria to attack it.
