Salon has gone on the offensive against Ron Paul and other ‘conspiracy-prone’ thinkers following an article on Storyleak that revealed the former Congressman had labeled the Syrian chemical attacks as a ‘false flag’ initiative to launch war.
A notion that a large number of prominent figures are now confirming and re-iterating, showing just how behind the tired mainstream media truly is. In fact, it seems like there is only a very tiny minority in the nation that actually trusts the lies spewed forth from Mr. ‘WMD’ Kerry and his false claims about the chemical attacks. This, of course, coincides with the reality that only 9 percent of Americans currently support a war effort against Syria.
And it seems the establishment is very upset that staged chemical attacks cannot change that figure among the overwhelming evidence.
But don’t take my word for it. In fact, don’t even take Ron Paul’s word for it. As it turns out, more than a few prominent individuals have gone on record in stating that the chemical attacks were initiated by the Obama-backed Syrian rebels in order to start a war. Even three-time presidential adviser Pat Buchanan has gone on air in saying that the whole event ‘reeks of a false flag’ operation to launch full-scale war against Syria and Assad.
Buchanan, of course, must be a ‘conspiracy theorist’ kook according to Salon. And by that logic, anyone with a single brain cell and the capacity to read the news is now a conspiracy theorist. This therefore includes Russia’s Vladimir Putin, who recently told journalists:
“That is why I am convinced that [the chemical attack] is nothing more than a provocation by those who want to drag other countries into the Syrian conflict, and who want to win the support of powerful members of the international arena, especially the United States.”
What a conspiracy theorist, huh?
Even mega news organizations like The Independent are asking why Obama has sided with al-Qaeda, and the rebels have actually now taken full credit for the chemical attacks. Add in the fact that Obama has been secretly supporting the Syrian rebels who behead Christians and burn down villages since 2011 under ‘secret orders’ reported by Reuters, and you begin to realize the true kooks are the ones who continue to follow this mad man and his handlers.
