You can always tell when the U.S. government is getting desperate when it starts trotting out the chemical war narratives against its enemy or enemies of the moment. From Finian Cunningham at strategic-culture.org:
The CW card is a complete dud. That Western media are playing it shows that their role is as sinister as mass drug-dealing.
Western media are now accusing Russian forces of preparing to use chemical weapons (CW) of mass destruction in Ukraine, thereby making the case for greater NATO military intervention.
The CW card is a complete dud. That Western media are playing it shows they are also complete duds, and that their role is as sinister as mass drug-dealing.
Deliberate provocation by Western powers is the watchword. Britain this week supplying long-range missiles, as well as depleted uranium artillery shells, and drone attacks on the Kremlin are part of a sequence to solicit never-ending escalation. Accusing Russia of planning to use chemical weapons of mass destruction, as with earlier claims of Russia willing to use nuclear weapons, is all part of the orchestrated provocation.
The degradation of Western media standards has become so bad that they can get away with retailing such nonsense to consumers of this “information”.
First of all, Russia does not have any chemical weapons. As a signatory to the international treaty known as the Chemical Weapons Convention (1997), the Russian Federation verifiably destroyed all of its arsenals as per its signatory obligations. The complete decommissioning of these weapons by Russia in 2017 was verified by the Organization for the Prohibition on Chemical Weapons (OPCW).
The United States is the only major power that has not fully implemented the CW convention by retaining stockpiles of these weapons.
White helmets and fedbois, oh my!
I better check my smartphone for an update of what my take will be.
Thanks for the video.
