Ron Paul: “Zero Chance” Assad Behind Chemical Weapons Attack in Syria: Likely a False Flag 

“According to former Congressman Ron Paul, the chemical weapons attack in Khan Sheikhoun that killed 30 children and has led to calls for the Trump administration to intervene in Syria could have been a false flag attack.

“As Paul Joseph Watson details, pointing out that the prospect of peace in Syria was moving closer before the attack, with ISIS and Al-Qaeda on the run, Paul said the attack made no sense. ‘It looks like maybe somebody didn’t like that so there had to be an episode,” said Paul, asking, “who benefits?’

“ ‘It doesn’t make any sense for Assad under these conditions to all of a sudden use poison gases – I think there’s zero chance he would have done this deliberately,’ said Paul. The former Congressman went on to explain how the incident was clearly being exploited by neo-cons and the deep state to enlist support for war.

“ ‘It’s the neo-conservatives who are benefiting tremendously from this because it’s derailed the progress that has already been made moving toward a more peaceful settlement in Syria,” said Paul.’ 

“ ‘Many have questioned why Assad would be so strategically stupid as to order a chemical weapons attack and incite the wrath of the world given that he is closer than ever to winning the war against ISIS and jihadist rebels.’

“Just five days before the attack, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said, “The longer-term status of President Assad will be decided by the Syrian people,” implying a definite shift in U.S. foreign policy away from regime change in Syria.

Why would Assad put such assurances in jeopardy by launching a horrific chemical attack, allowing establishment news outlets like CNN to once against use children as props to push for yet another massive war in the Middle East?

Before you swallow the major media’s contention that Ron Paul’s Peace & Prosperity website is “Fake News,” let me remind you of numerous past “False Flags” passed along as truth by America’s mainstream propaganda media.

False Flag #1 The Lusitania – In 1915 Britain was at war with Germany, and Britain wanted the help of the U.S. to destroy Germany. Just prior to the sinking of the Lusitania, British Foreign Minister Edward Grey asked Edward Mandell House, top advisor to President Woodrow Wilson: “What will America do if the Germans sink an ocean liner with American passengers on board?” House’s reply: “I believe that a flame of indignation would sweep the United States and that by itself would be sufficient to carry us into the war.” The British had Germany’s navy code and knew the approximate location of her U-boats at that time, including the U-20, which sank the Lusitania on May 7, 1915, which was not only carrying passengers but also millions of rounds of ammunition, shrapnel shells, gun cotton, and other munitions.  Commander Joseph Kenworthy, then in British Naval Intelligence, wrote: “The Lusitania was sent at considerably reduced speed into an area where a U-boat was known to be waiting and with her escorts withdrawn.” If you doubt President Wilson’s complicity with the British, then we must ask why the President ordered that the ship’s original manifest, listing her munitions, be hidden in the archives of the U.S. Treasury.


On April 16, 1917, the U.S. officially declared war on the Axis powers. Eight days later, Congress dutifully passed the War Loan Act, which paved the way for the U.S. taxpayer to fund Britain’s war efforts. But there was also a very strong economic interest on the part of J.P. Morgan, who had at that time created a strong relationship with the British Rothschild banking cartel.  In chapter 12 of his book The Creature from Jekyll Island, G. Edward Griffin explains the economic benefits for getting into the war. England was on the verge of losing their war against Germany. To fund the war, the Rothschild banking interests of England used their close relationship with J.P. Morgan to borrow huge amounts of money from J.P. Morgan. By the time the Second World War was over, the British had run up a debt of $9,466,000,000, which was a lot of money at that time. 

From the spoils of WWI, came the setup for World War II, which destined Germany to poverty and the reaction of the German people in electing Hitler. Thus, while the U.S. in 1776 had started a revolution against an evil King of England, it didn’t take too long for powerful elitist interests in both countries to undo the American Revolution. World War II would become the next major step away from the freedom won by the brave soldiers who revolted against the King of England in 1776.

False Flag # 2 Pearl Harbor – The spoils of World War I set the stage for World War II, as the victors punished Germany with reparations so onerous that it led to massive money printing that caused hyperinflation and the destruction of the German republic into Nazi Germany and World War II.  From an economic perspective, some of America’s elite were serving both sides during the war. In effect they were hedging their bets. The Rockefellers, Fords, and others were doing business with Hitler during the war as well as supplying the U.S. and England.

With Hitler waging war in Europe, Churchill wanted desperately to once again draw the U.S. into the war to help England in an otherwise unwinnable battle against Germany. The problem was that the U.S. population were happy with the way things were. More than 90% of the U.S. population objected to a U.S. involvement in assisting the British. So a secret plan was hatched between the U.S. and England. With Japan becoming a rising power and threatening Britain’s dominance in that part of the world, the U.S. was convinced to use its navy to help England thwart Japan’s growing economic influence in the region. A blockade was set up to keep Japan from being able to import life-sustaining oil. The U.S. had broken the Japanese code, which allowed both Churchill and Roosevelt to know the Japanese were planning an attack on the U.S. Navy. At that time, over 90% of the American population was against the U.S. becoming involved in a war against Germany. But an increasingly desperate Japan had no choice but to attack American ships at Pearl Harbor. The sacrifice of American soldiers caused the U.S. population to change its mind and the U.S. just as suddenly entered the war to essentially force America’s right to become the dominant player in the Pacific.

The outcome of the war was to allow the U.S. and England to form NATO and essentially adopt western European countries as de facto colonies or subservient states, which they have remained to this day. The major ally in fighting Hitler was Russia. Arguably Russia was as responsible as any country for defeating Hitler. What emerged from World War II was a bipolar world with the Russian and eastern European block united on one hand and the Anglo American Empire and its institutions controlling the West. The next battle would be the Cold War between the U.S. and NATO and Russia and the Soviet Union. The U.S. “won” the cold war, but how it has been won is what most Americans, by design, remain ignorant about.

False Flag # 3 Vietnam – The Tonkin Gulf Resolution – In 1964 Congress passed the Tonkin Gulf Resolution, authorizing President Lyndon B. Johnson to intervene in the Vietnam War, to which he committed hundreds of thousands of troops. The justification given for the resolution was two alleged attacks on U.S. destroyers by Vietnamese torpedo boats in the Tonkin Gulf on August 2 and August 4, 1964.

There was only one problem. The President of the U.S. lied to get approval to go to war. Regarding the first incident, the U.S. patrol boat was supporting the South Vietnam’s military operation in North Vietnam. Since that activity was not approved by Congress (at that time there still was some adherence to the Constitutional requirement that wars be voted on by Congress), Johnson had to lie about the attack being unprovoked. 

The second attack never occurred at all. Admiral James Stockdale, recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor, was a pilot stationed in the Tonkin Gulf at the time. Later shot down, he spent seven years in a communist POW camp. After returning home, he summarized his experiences in his book, In Love and War. In that book Stockdale explained that he had been called to the scene of the alleged August 4 attack but saw no Vietnamese boats during one-and-a-half-hours of flight over the Tonkin Gulf.


As James Perloff writes in his book Truth Is a Lonely Warrior,It was eventually revealed that the Tonkin Gulf Resolution was written before the alleged incident—i.e., the document was simply awaiting an excuse to activate it.


The Vietnam War was just the beginning of a massive military industrial complex that President Eisenhower warned us about several years earlier as he was leaving the Presidency. The military industrial complex was taking a life of its own that would grow increasingly powerful. But to ensure that the rich powerful elite in the U.S. could move inexorably toward total domination, to a one-world government, to make sure the Soviet Union was destroyed, and that no power ever would challenge the American Empire again, some more changes needed to be made to strip Americans of not only of their liberty but of an equal standing economically as well. To ensure there were no more riots from the young people needed to wage wars, President Nixon took away the military draft. Secondly and no doubt most important of all was to remove gold from the dollar, such that the U.S. could in subsequent years spend unlimited amounts of money to wage wars and overthrow countries that did not submit to the powerful interests of an American elite that increasingly controlled the system. So on August 15, 1971, Nixon removed gold from the dollar and the U.S. expansion was able to spend enormous amounts of money to move toward a one-world government.


False Flag # 4 Iraq – Weapons of Mass Destruction – On February 5, 2003, before the conflict began, U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell told the United Nations he had absolute proof that Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction (WMD) that were an immediate threat to world security. He declared: “My colleagues, every statement I make today is backed up by sources, solid sources. These are not assertions. What we are giving you are facts and conclusions based on solid intelligence.” And President Bush declared in his radio address of March 8, 2003: “Saddam Hussein and his weapons are a direct threat to this country, to our people, and to all free people …I will not leave the American people at the mercy of the Iraqi dictator and his weapons.” 


The partner in the Anglo American Empire, Britain’s Prime Minister Tony Blair, was also beating the war drums when he told the House of Commons: “Saddam Hussein’s regime is despicable; he is developing weapons of mass destruction, and we cannot leave him doing so unchecked.


Again, there was only one problem. There were no weapons of mass destruction! After the invasion, David Kay, the chief U.S. weapons inspector, acknowledged that months of searching had turned up no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, and in his opinion they hadn’t existed there since the 1991 Gulf War. Furthermore, Colin Powell, who had made such definite assertions before the UN, has admitted that his claims were based on faulty intelligence.


And Scotland’s Sunday Herald exposed the prewar doctoring of WMD evidence:


“Britain ran a covert ‘dirty tricks’ operation designed specifically to produce misleading intelligence that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction to give the UK a justifiable excuse to wage war in Iraq.


“Operation Rockingham, established by the Defense Intelligence Staff within the Ministry of Defence in 1991, was set up to ‘cherry pick’ intelligence proving an active Iraqi WMD program and to ignore and quash intelligence which indicated that Saddam’s stockpiles had been destroyed or wound down.


“The existence of Operation Rockingham has been confirmed by Scott Ritter, the former UN chief weapons inspector, and a US military intelligence officer. He knew members of the Operation Rockingham team and described the unit as ‘dangerous,’ but insisted they were not ‘rogue agents,’ acting without government backing. ‘This policy was coming from the very highest levels,’ he added. ‘Rockingham was spinning reports and emphasizing reports that showed non-compliance (by Iraq with UN inspections) and quashing those which showed compliance. It was cherry-picked intelligence.’


“Ritter and other intelligence sources say Operation Rockingham and MI6 were supplying skewed information to the Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC), which, Tony Blair has told the Commons, was behind the intelligence dossiers that the government published to convince the parliament and the people of the necessity of war against Iraq. Sources in both the British and US intelligence community are now equating the JIC with the Office of Special Plans (OSP) in the US Pentagon. The OSP was set up by the Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld to gather intelligence which would prove the case for war. In a staggering attack on the OSP, former CIA officer Larry Johnson told the Sunday Herald the OSP was ‘dangerous for US national security and a threat to world peace,’ adding that it ‘lied and manipulated intelligence to further its agenda of removing Saddam.”


Paving the Way for One-World Government/Total Human Enslavement


Thomas Jefferson noted that “the price of liberty is eternal vigilance.” The mainstream media, which with few exceptions are in the pockets of the military/industrial complex, depend on most citizens being too busy or too distracted with a life of sex, drugs, and rock ’n roll to give two hoots about the massive numbers of killings the U.S. military is doing in the name of peace and justice for all and even less about the false pretenses upon which the most amazing killing machine in the history of the world is used to bring suffering and chaos to this world. God is love and order. Satan is hatred and chaos. Can there be any doubt but that an elite society in the banking industry and military industrial complex who are seeking a one-world government with its own taking charge are not following a satanic path? Not so quietly these elites are talking about eliminating cash and implanting a chip on your person so they can monitor your every breath until you leave this earth. Such is the exact opposite as was uttered in the American Declaration of Independence!


Russia, China, and a few other, smaller countries are not cooperating in the effort of our elite, who seek a unipolar world government. Russia and China are not interested in submitting to rape at the hands of a Western culture. Putin is deemed a demon even though NATO is stationed all around Russia and given that he poses no threat toward the U.S. whatsoever. China is not permitted to patrol its own sea lanes. At risk is possible nuclear annihilation of mankind unless Russia and China submit to the control of the Anglo American military complex.


Before you buy the propaganda that “Assad is poisoning his own people,” just remember that you have seen this movie before. I have noted just four false flags that an American ruling elite has used to trick you into supporting wars that have made this world a more evil place. Before you blindly buy this line, history suggests at the very least you should be skeptical about the reasons America needs to kills hundreds of thousands more innocent people. Underlying the moral cause for war has been a persistent evil in quest of power and wealth at the expense of most of humanity. To quote Augustine in Confessions, “Wherever we taste the truth, God is there.” Might there be a connection between a world gone mad and our loss of faith of God in the Western world?
