An analyst says the United States and its allies in the region are to blame for having helped militants in Syria to launch the deadly chemical attack on civilians in August.
Michel Chossudovsky told Press TV in an interview on Friday that the US-led “military alliance” backed “the rebels in using chemical weapons” in Syria.
“The United States and its allies continue to support the al-Qaeda-affiliated rebels which are involved in the process of destruction of an entire country (Syria),” he stated.
Chossudovsky noted that “Israeli sponsored rebels” backed by “Qatar, Turkey, [and] Saudi Arabia” staged the chemical attack and “then blamed it on the [Syrian] government.”
“And we know unequivocally that that event which used fake videos of children killed was there; it was a false flag and its objective was to blame the Syrian government when in fact those crimes were committed and ordered by the United States and its allies,” said Chossudovsky.
He said the militants fighting against the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad “are the foot soldiers of the Western military alliance.”
Chossudovsky also expressed regret that the international community has not taken any action to stop “a humanitarian crisis” which is unfolding in Syria.
“A country has been destroyed; there is an outbreak of polio, at least it is reported, and then the question is who is responsible for this hideous crime against the Syrian people and the entire nation. It is what I call the self-proclaimed international community,” he said.
Chossudovsky described the international community as a “rogue conjunction of warmongering states... responsible for extensive war crimes against the people of Syria.”
