Many of Trump’s far-right supporters believe this was a false flag attack to sucker Trump into war with Russia. Trump previously said he would not get involved militarily with Syria. But that all changed last week.
Obviously as a civilian, Trump did not have all the intelligence on Syria. But as President, he has more intel available — which justifies his shift in foreign policy.
Prominent libertarian Ron Paul claims it was a false flag.
InfoWars’ Alex Jones says it was a false flag.
Here’s all the indications that it could be a false flag.
- Award-winning journalist Robert Parry claims inside sources revealed that Saudi Arabia launched the chemical attack to entice USA to attack Assad.
U.S. intelligence analysts determined that a drone was responsible for the attack and “eventually came to believe that the flight was launched in Jordan from a Saudi-Israeli special operations base for supporting Syrian rebels,” according to the source.
“The suspected reason for the poison gas was to create an incident that would reverse the Trump administration’s announcement in late March that it was no longer seeking the removal of President Bashar al-Assad,” writes Parry.

- In Moscow, during a press conference with Italian President Sergio Mattarella, Russia President Vladimir Putin said “We have reports from multiple sources that false flags like this one – and I cannot call it otherwise – are being prepared in other parts of Syria, including the southern suburbs of Damascus.”
- Why Would Syria & Russia Launch A Chemical Attack On Civilians When They’re Succeeding In Syria Against ISIS?
Logically, the chemical attack makes no sense. Syria and Russia want limited U.S. intervention in Syria — and they know launching a chemical attack on innocents would cause the U.S. to intervene. So why would Russia, who wants to work with President Trump, involve themselves in such an atrocity? And why would Syria President Bashar Assad launch a chemical attack on his own civilians when he’s winning the war against ISIS and is not being militarily attacked by the U.S.?
I am not claiming that Assad did not do the attack. It could have been a false flag, it could not have been. I don’t know either way. There’s no complete evidence that shows it was a false flag. It’s all speculation.
