 Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, D.C. Inventing Threat Of “WMD” In Syria As Pretext For Military Action

So, who do you believe?  

Russia, who is not a war-monger all over the map??  Or our wonderful, holy, awesome, ‘patriotic’, exceptional American Pentagon with a MUSLIM in charge of our military who is on the side of the Jihadists in Syria??  

Sorry, I place my bets on Russia.

Excerpt:

The Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, this week accused Washington of inventing a non-existent chemical weapons threat as a pretext for military action – a charge that has echoes of US claims about Iraq before the 2003 invasion.

“As soon as we get these rumours [about chemical weapons] we engage in constructive démarche; when we get confirmation that nothing of that type is happening we share this information with our American colleagues,” Lavrov said.

The alleged chemical weapons threat has been used by Nato’s secretary general, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, to justify deploying Patriot missiles in neighbouring Turkey.

NBC quoted US officials as saying the Syrian government had ordered its chemical weapons corps to “be prepared” which Washington interpreted as a directive to begin bringing together the components needed to turn Syria’s chemical stockpiles into weapons.

AND, just lookie lookie:

Other leaks report that the US is training Syrian rebels to secure chemical weapons they may capture
