Col. Rob Maness: Syria will use chemical weapons again

John CardilloRebel Host | Off The Cuff

On last night's episode of Off The Cuff DeclassifiedColonel Rob Maness USAF (Ret.) who commanded bomber squadrons in the War on Terror joins me the future of Syria after the air strikes ordered by President Trump.

Rob explains that Assad is winning the civil war and will likely use chemical weapons again, even if its the result of prodding by Iran or Russia.

Allowing Assad to act with impunity will only strengthen Iran's position against Israel and grant Russia access to a warm water port. But Assad is also eliminating terrorist organizations like ISIS and al-Nusra, who pose a threat to the west.

It's a very complicated situation with no clear desirable outcome.

WATCH my interview to see why neither of us thinks Trump should pursue regime change in Syria.

Interview with a Druze Syrian living in Damascus. Says he doesn’t want to live under Sharia. That Assad’s Syria is a secular government. Says CNN are liars. Very well spoken.

The Missile strike, carried out by the UK, US and France, has nothing to do with alleged chemical warfare by Assad. It was intended as a warning to Russia. ‘Back off Putin’ was the real message.

Why would he use chemical weapons? He is winning regardless of the US supplying ISIS with all kinds of things! Why would he take that risk? Don’t believe everything you hear. In the past attacks it wasn’t him! It’s all dirty politics again driven by the oil and a war mongering military cartel! They want him out so the oil mafia can build the oil pipeline. You’ll see this will go on forever till they get what they want.

With so much fake news from each side, with some investigation you can find the truth.

Here is the smoking gun article from Reuters, dated March 13, 2018. The chemical attack happened on April 8, 2018. This is not made up. Nor is it conspiracy theory. This article has been up for almost a month on Reuters before the “so-called” chemical attack. Copy and download it at home it before it is removed.

“Russia says U.S. plans to strike Damascus, pledges military response”

MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia said on Tuesday it had information that the United States planned to bomb the government quarter in Damascus on an invented pretext, and said it would respond militarily if it felt Russian lives were threatened by such an attack.
Valery Gerasimov, head of Russia’s General Staff, said Moscow had information that rebels in the enclave of eastern Ghouta were planning to fake a chemical weapons attack against civilians and blame it on the Syrian army.
He said the United States intended to use the fake attack as a pretext to bomb the government quarter in nearby Damascus where he said Russian military advisers, Russian military police and Russian ceasefire monitors were based.
“In the event of a threat to the lives of our servicemen, Russia’s armed forces will take retaliatory measures against the missiles and launchers used,” Gerasimov said in a statement.He did not say when the alleged attack would take place or provide detailed evidence to back his assertions.
Russia has previously accused rebels in Syria of preparing to use toxic agents in eastern Ghouta so they could later accuse Damascus of employing chemical weapons.
Damascus denies Western allegations that government forces have used chemical weapons.
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley warned on Monday that Washington “remains prepared to act if we must,” if the U.N. Security Council failed to act on Syria, as the Syrian army’s onslaught in eastern Ghouta continued unabated."

On a vast number of Conservative websites there are not few, but many who believe the gas attacks were faked and most of them are/were Trump supporters. Considering the fallout over the WMD fiasco in Iraq, the US should have compliant in presenting the actual evidence, unobstructed to the public. They have not.

I expect journalism on ‘The Rebel’ and that requires hard work to get the truth out there and let the chips fall where they may, instead of following scripts and here say and presenting propaganda as truth, however well intentioned that propaganda may be.

It sounds like Rob Maness doesn’t know who is responsible for the chem attacks either. Why didn’t the western war mongers just say we are going in because – Iran, or because – Russia ? We have more in common with Russia than not. I thought when Trump got in he was going to try to work with Putin? If anywhere needs new leadership its Iran. The Iranian people are tired of Mohammedan rule.
