Again for chemical weapons: the US threatened Syria with new sanctions

United States threatens to impose new sanctions against Syria on the basis of a new report by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical weapons (OPCW), which refers to the alleged use by the Syrian authorities of chemical warfare agents in March 2017 in the village of El Latamna. This was stated by a representative of the State Department of high rank.


Speaking at a briefing for journalists, the representative of the State Department, answering a question about specific measures that Washington can take against Damascus on the basis of a new report, said that the United States initially wanted to turn to the UN Security Council, but decided not to, as Russia and China " still block "because they support the" Assad regime ".

(...) will have to take actions of a different kind. (...) They also include sanctions programs, including sanctions under the “Syria Civilian Protection Act” (...) to punish the regime and, frankly, punish those economically who supports him for what they did

- he added.

According to the American diplomat, the sanctions will also include isolating the Assad regime and blocking any assistance to stabilize the situation in the country until "Syria will comply with its obligations under the UN."

The OPCW previously released a report alleging that the Syrian Air Force was responsible for three chemical weapons incidents in El Latamn (Homs) in March 2017. According to the commission, the Syrian planes dropped bombs containing poisonous sarin gas in the south of the village on March 24 and 30, and on March 25, a Syrian Air Force helicopter dropped a chlorine cylinder at the hospital.

The Russian Ministry of Defense called this report "not credible."

      So they didn’t destroy their chemical weapons themselves, they bark at others so that they don’t get close to them.

        Yes, and under the accompaniment of a global panic, we decided to remember about chemical weapons. To give the frightened public an associative series with the Assad regime, for 80 percent do not understand the difference between a virus and chemical weapons. It should be said more often that the virus from the United States may have come into the world and they have not destroyed chemical weapons. Draw conclusions, world.

      Yes, worse than about a bathhouse, which they did not even have. But here is what the whole world considers to be idiotic idiots, they think the most intelligent, fair, human, and they themselves are worse than wild animals. At least recall their biological laboratories around the world that belong to the US Navy. The entire southern underbelly of Russia (namely the South) is filled with American laboratories, hundreds of millions of dollars are invested in laboratories in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Georgia, Uzbekistan, Moldova, and Ukraine. There are biological laboratories in Bukhara and Surkhandarya, Karakalpakstan, and Samarkand and Tashkent regions. In spring 2017, an epidemic of chickenpox began in Tashkent (in Uzbek - “suv-chechak”). But in hospitals, doctors indicated a different diagnosis, “allergic dermatitis,” to hide the spread of the disease, affecting both children and adults. Bacterial samples, including the species causing plague and anthrax, were delivered from Baku to the United States by military aircraft as part of a secret mission, ”the Chicago Tribune wrote then.
      Azerbaijan gave the USA 124 samples of 62 unique types of pathogens of plague, anthrax, cholera and other dangerous diseases, the samples were transported to the Institute of Pathology of the US Armed Forces (Washington). Azerbaijan is not alone in this sense: it is known that its other biological collections of pathogens were transferred to the United States and other former republics of the USSR, in particular Ukraine and Georgia. Also remember the high-profile scandal of 2010, when a biolaboratory owned by the US Navy was closed in Indonesia, as secret experiments with bird flu were conducted there. And biological weapons, much stronger than chemical ones, are now convinced of this by the whole world.

        It is strange, why, against the backdrop of deliberately false accusations from the United States, does not raise in the same UN the question that the CVID-19 virus has all the signs of artificial development and does not require the organization of an international commission to check the virus for "artificiality", and then to require admission to the alleged places of its development and leakage, which will most likely end up in the United States, and also to demand compensation from the United States (or whom it will be identified as a developer) for concealing the start of the epidemic, which may have started in the United States, already in November 2019, as well as rub Bova compensation for losses suffered by all countries because of the coronavirus pandemic ?.

    Diplomacy, all that. The word "deceitful" can no longer be said. Homosexuals no longer rhyme with the word "tarantasses," but alternative-sexual ones. Ugh.

    Let the United States talk about their use of bacteriological weapons in the form of various epidemics .... otherwise, as soon as the facts about American involvement in viral attacks begin to emerge, they immediately start shouting to the whole world about chemical weapons in Syria ... American chemical weapons strange in fact - this is household bleach. Maybe the fight against bleach has created the conditions for the spread of coronovirus in the United States ????

    Well, a hackneyed record is already ... hollowing and hollowing on one topic ... Just thinking - "why" is impossible for anyone?
    Why does Assad, who apparently won this battle, throw chemical weapons unsystematically and ineffectively? For what purpose? This is pure Hollywood. Like, he’s so bloodthirsty, he doesn’t go to bed until he poisones someone ...

        And why do you think I didn’t write “brain”, namely “skull”? The skull is the bone. And inside - the inter-ear vacuum

    until "Syria will not comply with its obligations under the UN."
    Here is bullshit, some kind of kindergarten. Even if you comply with all obligations, you try to be a good child, but still someone doesn’t like it (Assad must leave). And here it always appears, through corrupt international organizations such as the OPCW, and off we go, an old song. Where is the evidence? What for? All the "progressive" and so know that Assad is a "villain." How is this circus sickened. From the phrase "international organization" is already sick. Immediately there is a stable association - dirt, lies, corruption.

    It should ensure the process of chemical disarmament of Syria, but not blackmail. According to this, sanctions are awarded to Syria

    Again for chemical weapons ...
    Once perched on a lame and sick horse (chemical weapons in Syria), which Europe and the OPCW supported for reins and even helped climb its thin ridge, the United States will not get off it until it dies of old age. There would be a desire to impose sanctions, but there is always a reason.

    What other sanctions are they already fighting there?
    Oh yes, maybe they will block the Syrian border and cut off their occupation contingent from supplies, then I am for sanctions.?
