[there are three options: a classical US-executed false flag; a Syrian strike on a

the Syrians and got them to bomb a location where the US knew that toxic gas was stored.

Resist This: the United States is at War With Syria
[by helping its Sunni allies provide weapons to al Nusra Front and its allies and by
funneling into the war zone sophisticated weapons that were bound to fall into al Nusra
hands or strengthen their overall military position, U.S. policy has been largely
responsible for having extended al Qaeda's power across a significant part of Syrian
territory. The CIA and the Pentagon appear to be ready to tolerate such a betrayal of
America's stated counter-terrorism mission. Unless either Congress or the White House
confronts that betrayal explicitly, as Tulsi Gabbard's legislation would force them to
do, U.S. policy will continue to be complicit in the consolidation of power by al Qaeda
in Syria, even if the Islamic State is defeated there.--Gareth Porter, "

How America Armed Terrorists in Syria: Another Middle East debacle
[On April 6, United States President Donald Trump authorized an early morning Tomahawk
missile strike on Shayrat Air Base in central Syria in retaliation for what he said was
a deadly nerve agent attack carried out by the Syrian government two days earlier in the
rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhoun. Trump issued the order despite having been warned by
the U.S. intelligence community that it had found
no evidence that the Syrians had used
a chemical weapon.--Seymour M. Hersh, " ," welt.de, June 25, 2017]

Behind Trump's Syria Attack Questioned
[The danger with Trump's "retaliatory" strike,
based on zero evidence of a chemical
weapons attack, is that it could have killed Russian soldiers and dragged Putin into a
highly dangerous confrontation with the US. Also, the intelligence community fears that
the media have promoted a false narrative that suggests not only that a sarin attack
took place, but paints Russia as a co-conspirator and implies that a UN team did not in
fact oversee the destruction of Syria's chemical weapons stockpile back in 2013-14. That
would allow Assad's opponents to claim in the future, at a convenient time, yet another
unsubstantiated sarin gas attack by the Syrian government.--Jonathon Cook, " ," jonathan-cook.net,

get a nuke, according to Washington's own 17-agency NIEs (national intelligence
estimates); and gave it up anyway with ironclad mechanisms for international
