After yesterday’s debate in Parliament ending in defeat for Cameron our mainstream news has been full of Tory-led scaremongering rhetoric about how Britain has ‘let down’ America and the people of Syria. This fit of pique by the Tories relies on the moral argument that the use of chemical weapons is morally unacceptable – something its hard to disagree with – and is designed to make us believe that the only solution is to send bombs into Syria to ‘punish’ Assad. What we;re encouraged to forget are the countless instances throughout the history of Western wars of our own use of chemicals as a weapon. Churchill once stated that he couldn’t understand the squeamishness at the use of poison gas . And as this excellent blogpost shows, our government has been developing and testing biological and chemical weapons at Porton Down since the 1950’s. Its clear that the moralising is propaganda intended to whip up public support for a military intervention whose purpose has nothing to do with humanitarian concerns whatsoever. We should never trust our so-called world leaders to tell us the truth – we should seek it for ourselves and this blog is a good place to start.
The hypocrisy of Cameron and Hague accusing Assad for using chemical weapons on his own people, when Britain thinks nothing of using chemical weapons on their own people. How soon they forget.
Strange how all the bodies of the Damascus so called attack have not surfaced yet. We are now being told the bodies have been taken to Jordan. Why would the so called victims, which didn’t go to a regular hospital all of a sudden be sent to Jordan? You would think they would be used as proof of the chemical attack and not hidden away. So Obama’s evidence hinges on an Al Qaeda film of what happened.
The following films show how Britain used chemical weapons on its own people without their knowledge.
