DAMASCUS: Inspectors from the OPCW, the chemical weapons watchdog, have visited the site of the fake events leading up to the joint Anglo-French-American air assault on Syria and have reportedly taken samples of soil, clothing and other artifacts for examination. Another grouping of the inspectors is interviewing citizens to get their take on the events of the Saturday before last and collecting blood samples from cadavers. All samples will be studies at the OPCW laboratory in Rijswijk, a suburb of the Hague. (Don’t ask me to pronounce that word.)
Of concern to SyrPer is the director of the OPCW, Ahmet Uzumcu, a former career diplomat with the Turk foreign ministry – a former Turk ambassador to the Zionist Apartheid State (7-28-1999 to 6-30-2002). He was also, amazingly, Turkey’s former representative to NATO. Being a Turk with qualifications like this would make anyone suspect that his credibility was fragile to nil.
As an example, recently there were allegations that Turkey used CW (chlorine) in its campaign against the SDF and PKK in ‘Afreen. Uzumcu claimed to have investigated the matter and found no “credible” evidence to justify a finding that Turkey used chlorine at that location. Surprise! He is clearly a compromised source of information and I’m just flummoxed by Russia’s insistence on a OPCW investigation knowing this Turk would have overall authority over the inspectors and their conclusions. If there were any conceivable questions about his appropriateness for the task at hand, they should have been brought formally so he could, at the very least, distance himself from any scientific conclusions.
At SyrPer we are expecting the inspectors to find nothing but hypoxia as confirmed by several medical doctors in the Ghouta. Evidently, as the narrative goes, there were citizens huddled inside fruit cellars, and the like, using them as bomb shelters. When bombs started falling, dust and particles were thrown up into the air and, then, descended into the make-shift shelters causing people to gag and show signs of oxygen deprivation (hypoxia). When the so-called criminals of the White Helmets started shouting “gas!” and “gas attack!”, people were in a panicked state. The entire event was staged and suspiciously, cameras and terrorist news crews began to appear and film children being hosed down in some crackpot show of emergency medical treatment. When you see the tapes, you cannot help but laugh as the so-called frauds exposed themselves to possible contamination.
I believe the OPCW will declare it is unable to assess whether or not CW was used at all. The OPCW is not an prosecutorial organization such that it can assess blame. It can only determine if CW was used, if at all. By announcing its inability to make the determination, this character, Uzumcu, will have fulfilled his duties as mole, spy, agent and treacherous Turk. He will leave Trump, Boris Johnson, Macron and May with a face-saving way out. Don’t be surprised to hear that the Russians “cleared the area of evidence”. The West will argue that that is the reason a “staged” sniper incident delayed the entry of the inspectors even though no members of the OPCW team or the Department of Safety and Security made any such allegation to anyone.
This is a strange world of dysfunction. Look at the Western characters in this dark comedy: A real estate investor with orange skin, orange hair and a habit of enjoying sexual relations with Playboy models while his model wife is having their first child. You have a French president married to a woman 30 years his senior. You have a British Foreign Minister who looks and acts like an English sheepdog. Top it off with a woman at the helm of England’s highest office but whose mien, temperament and lifelessness can only be matched by John Major. It is a clownish cast.
We can confirm the deaths of ISIS’s commanders in Al-Hajar Al-Aswad and the Yarmook Camp: Abu Hishaam Al-Khaaboori (Saudi) and Abu ‘Ali Nafsha. Both were unceremoniously splattered by well-aimed infantry rocket fire.
The Al-Zayn Quarter located between Yalda and Al-Hajar Al-Aswad has been liberated by the SAA as of yesterday, April 21, 2018. This has effectively isolated ISIS and Alqaeda separating them from other pockets to their north. The army is advancing notably in Al-Tadhaamun and Al-Qadam.
A large number of buses have entered the East Qalamoon, specifically at Al-Ruhayba, Jayrood and Al-Naasiriyya. With the terrorists having turned over all their heavy and medium weapons, their next stop is Jaraablus where they will be recruited by Erdoghan to join the ranks of the rodents fighting the Kurds. Enjoy.
