U.S. Welcomes OPCW Chemical Weapons Accusations Against Syrian Army

The U.S. has welcomed the recent Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) report accusing the Syrian military of carrying out three chemical weapon attacks.

The report, that was released by the organization’s Investigation and Identification Team (IIT) on April 8, claims that the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) conducted three airstrikes with Sarin and chlorine bombs on the town of al-Lataminah in northern Hama on March 24, 25 and 30 of 2017.

In a statement, the U.S. Department of State said it shares the organization’s conclusions and assesses that the Syrian military has sufficient experience to develop, produce and deploy chemical weapons, especially Sarin and chlorine.

“The United States condemns the use of chemical weapons as reported by the OPCW IIT and demands that the Syrian Arab Republic immediately cease all development, stockpiling, and use of chemical weapons,” the statement released on April 8 reads.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo repeated the OPCW’s accusations, slamming Damascus’ allies Russia and Iran for spreading “misinformation” on the matter.

“No amount of disinformation from Assad’s enablers in Russia and Iran can hide the fact that the Syrian regime is responsible for numerous chemical weapons attacks. Today’s OPCW report confirms the regime’s continued use of chemical weapons and utter disregard for human life,” Pompeo said on Twitter.

Syria joined the Chemical Weapons Convention in 2013 as a part of a deal brokered by Russia. The U.S. military played a key role in the mission to destroy the country’s chemical weapons. The OPCW confirmed that Syria’s stockpiles were destroyed as well as all production and research facilities.

The OPCW is yet to clarify the source of the chemical weapons it claims they were used by the SyAAF. The organization has not asked to inspect any new suspected facility in Syria, despite having the authority to do this. This raises serious questions about the recent accusations, which could be used to justify new sanctions on the war-torn country.

      Perhaps you could lead the charge, and succeed where the US gov’t, the whole of nato, the isreali regime and the saudis failed?

      Other failures await in Venezuela and Ukraine.

    So, we are in for an shit storm of stupid HasbaRats in this eh… pandemic times, nobody cares about OPCW, only the same rat pack whom have Lied, stolen and cheeted for decades, and OPCW dont infact have credibility what so ever, infact they just sement that further by been bitches for the insane Moronikan Gov.
    And on top of it, when the hideous Pompeous thing did an Bolton, threatens the familys of people working in OPCW, hasbaRats, what do you then expect comes out from this bitches, huh, but I know most of you had even forgotten that, the threats, havent you, when the Empire of scums go after your family, I dont blaim them for been pussyfooting, its just more of confirming we indeed live on an reality where might is right.
    Otherwise, I didnt bother to read anything regarding the corrupted OPCWs whatevers, except when I opened SF, just to read this, witch of course isnt an surpirce.
    For me, the case died when they became exposed, thru their initial scam about this been an Gass attack, and again, the use of narratives witch have historical consencusses aga gassing 6 trillion Jews or somewhere around that, smooth huh move.
    But then again, we are dealing with people whom is behaving more and more like Pavlovs Dogs, ding and they start to scream nonsense they have been indctrinated with since their birth
    Yeah, and people riddicouls Dogs.

    peace

    Beurk.
    Could somebody clean this OCPW mess cause it really stinks.

  • Peter Jennings

    Criminals slapping each other’s back. They take the public money and return a bunch of lies. These people are managers no longer, but criminals.

    The OPCW has zero credibility and their management stinks of shysters. They are entertained by similar shysters in gov’t, which is coming to an end. The publc will see to it that the current management gets sacked and prevented from ever holding a similar post.

    Who funds the IIT? Remember the 12 out of 193 UN members, together with the EU who funded the Joint Investigative Mechanism section of the OPCW?

    What is the point of the OPCW if they can be purchased?

    Syria handed over their Chemical Weapons, to the US and the OPCW signed them off, back in 2012/2013.

    US cannot afford to shutdown their chemical weapons programme, but, has plenty of money to create new labs, with full diplomatic immunity, including the 13 advertising for Russian DNA in Ukraine.

    Israel has never signed upto the chemical weapons and nuclear international treaties, owing to not wishing to be inspected.

    Syria and Russia, the OPCW have confirmed and signed off their removal of CWs.

    The OPCW “leadership” are nothing but DIRTY LYING CUNTS.

    Does anything more need to be said?
