RT’s Lee Camp has explained why the Western narrative on Syrian chemical attacks doesn’t stand up to scrutiny.
On his show Redacted Tonight, Camp questioned the timing of the alleged chemical attack just a week after President Donald Trump ordered the Pentagon to begin preparing for a US exit and announced American troops would be leaving Syria “very soon.”
If, after this announcement, we end up with headlines announcing proclaiming another gas attack by Assad against his own people, do not believe it.
He may be a tyrant, but he’s not an idiot. The US leaving his country is good for him, and a gas attack prevents the US exit. https://t.co/CXVygfCsBV

The idea that Syrian President Bashar Assad suddenly decided to gas his own people immediately after Trump said he would leave doesn’t make any sense, Camp said, explaining that the Pentagon is using the same “tiresome” old tricks to keep the war machine going. “Peace is not an option for our American empire,” Camp said. “There’s way too much money in war.”
