The rising tensions in international relations of the recent period have had the “advantage” of exposing, at least partially, the dirty operations of Her Majesty’s government and secret
services. Thus, despite many layers of cover-up, the role of MI6 in the notorious “Russiagate” scandal in the United States finally came to light with the revelations on the salacious dossier
on Trump concocted by former MI6 agent Christopher Steele with the support of former MI6 director Richard Dearlove, and other connections. Then, came the story in mid-March from
top British officials, including Prime Minister May and Foreign Minister Johnson, that the “Russians” had tried to poison former Russian spy Sergey Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury.
That narrative collapsed when the UK chemical warfare experts at Porton Down denied there was any evidence that the agent used originated in Russia. Next, we had the claims from British intelligence networks about an alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria. In addition to Col. Pat Lang, a veteran of U.S. military intelligence, who denounced the role of the British services in that hoax (cf. SAS 15/18), State Senator Richard Black from Virginia also noted in an interview April 11 with LaRouchePAC that the British had launched a propaganda war weeks before on the planned use of CW by the Syrian government and were likely complicit in orchestrating one.
On the eve of the attack on Syria, the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) wrote an open letter to President Donald Trump “strongly recommending that you obtain and review actual evidence from the site of the alleged chemical attack in Douma, Syria, before ordering any military action.” The letter points to the “rebel-affiliated” White Helmets as the source of the charges against the Syrian government, and notes their experience, as intelligence professionals, in “the operational use of misinformation and false flag actions.” Although the VIPS letter fails to point specifically to the British role, their links to the White Helmets are well known
On April 12, Syria’s Ambassador to the UN, Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari, named Great Britain as the driving force for war against Syria and in the Middle East, adding that, historically, the British were responsible for pushing the United States to undertake “adventures in failed wars.” Thus, he emphasized, Britain is part of the problem, not part of the solution, so “we do not pay attention to what the British government might say.”
The more so, between April 3 and April 6 the so-called White Helmets were seriously pressured from London to speed up the provocation that they were preparing. The White Helmets were told there would be an artillery attack on Damascus planned by the Jaysh al-Islam, and that they should arrange the provocation after retaliatory strikes by the Syrian government forces. And the intelligence agencies of a state that is now striving to spearhead a Russo-phobic campaign were involved in that fabrication.
