Chemical weapon used on civilians in Syria + Airstrikes

Another awful story coming out of Syria. Chemical weapon used on civilians. Pictures of dead women and children. Seems to be a massive online war to control the narrative too. Doesn't seem to be any end to this proxy war between the US and Russia and only the innocent seem to be suffering.

The rebels should have taken the evacuation buses like the other two pockets in Ghouta. Not too sure as to how the US etc. will respond.

Nothing will happen ,we will get calls for s full UN investigation which will be blocked by russia who will repeatedly say there is no chemical weapons in Syria and it's all fake news to make russia look bad ,
meanwhile posters will come in to remind us that America did this and America did that .

Russia needs to stop supporting the butchers of Syria, House Assad. But I suppose it doesnt suit the current Russian policy of destabilising regions.

Every time Assad seems to be winning he starts using chemical weapons. It’s pretty stupid really.

The Russian should stop destabilising the region by supporting the Assad government. It’s only when the US supported rebels like Isis and Al Nusra take over and kill everybody in Damascus will the region be stabilised.

The Syrian conflict is not very straight forward and claims of chemical attacks should be treated with hessitation as they could spark a regional conflict.

Since the recent forced evacuation of various rebel groups from Eastern Ghouta, media outlets have been reporting discoveries of chemical weapon manufacturing bunkers underground, primarily in the last current bastion of rebel held Ghouta.

The refusal of the group to relocate may add an element of truth to the unconfirmed discoveries. It is further solidified when you take into account that the same rebel group previously used chemical agents against syrian population in Aleppo.

The recent targeted strikes by syrian and russian aircraft *may* have hit whatever stockpile was co-located with the rebel groups.

Tactically and strategically, it is unlikely that the Syrian forces used chemical weapons against the rebels and civilians in Ghouta. Especially at this late stage of the conflict while relocation deals are being handed out.

It is more likely that remaining rebels used the chemical agent as a last attempt to regain control and halt syrian advances by bringing the international community into the mix.

Thats IF there is any truth to it.

It's hard to know the real truth these days. It's like 1984.

Two different newspapers will report the facts in different ways, based on the wishes of their owners.
