Latest Propaganda Against Syria: Chlorine Gas From Iran Via China

Having now heard the claims that Assad has used chemical weapons against his own people or against Western-backed death squad fighters on numerous occasions only to find shortly thereafter that those claims were either entirely fabricated or that the death squads themselves were the responsible party, the chemical weapons lie now stands as the false narrative that the West simply refuses to let go.

Thus, the recent attempt by Western governments and their media mouthpieces to suggest that Iran is supplying the Syrian military with chlorine bombs to use against death squad forces should, at least initially, ring hollow.

For instance, in articles such as “West Fears Iran Is Supplying Chlorine Bombs To Syria” by Con Coughlin of the Telegraph, it is suggested that Iran has ordered 10,000 chlorine canisters from China and funneled them to the Syrian government via a regular air freight route between the two countries.
