The Art of War
Fake made in USA and lies
made in Italy
To motivate the 2003 war, the US accused Iraq of possessing weapons of mass
destruction: Secretary of State Colin Powell presented to the UN a series of
"evidences" that turned out to be false, as he himself had to admit
Similar "evidences" are now presented to motivate the attack on Syria
by the United States, Britain and France. On 14 April, General Kenneth
McKenzie, Joint Staff Director of the Pentagon, presented a report, accompanied
by satellite photos, on the Barzah Research and Development Center in Damascus,
calling it "the heart of the Syrian chemical weapons program".
The Center, which was the main target, was attacked with 76 cruise missiles (57
Tomahawk launched from ships and submarines and 19 JASSM launched from
aircraft). The target was destroyed, the general announced, bringing “the
Syrian chemical weapons program back for years". This time there is no need to wait thirteen years to confirm the falsity of
the "evidence". A month before the attack, on March 13, the
Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) had officially announced
the result of the second inspection, carried out at the Barzah Center in
November 2017, and of the analysis of samples taken completed in February 2018:
"The inspection team did not observe any activities inconsistent with
obligations under the Convention". It is no coincidence that the Barzah
Center was destroyed just before the OPCW inspectors arrived there for the
Syria, a member of the OPCW, completed chemical disarmament in 2014, while
Israel, which does not adhere to the Chemical Weapons Convention, is not
subject to any control. But this fact is neglected by the political-media
apparatus, which instead accuses Syria of possessing and using chemical
The Italian premier Gentiloni stated that Italy, while supporting "the
limited and targeted action to strike the manufacture of chemical
weapons", has not in any way taken part in it.
The attack was actually agreed upon and planned within NATO. This is proved by
the fact that, immediately after the attack, the North Atlantic Council was
convened: the United States, Great Britain and France "briefed Allies on
their joint military action in Syria overnight" and Allies officially
expressed "their full support for this action".
Premier Gentiloni also stated that "the logistical support that we provide
above all to the US could not in any way result in the fact that from the
Italian territory started direct actions aimed at hitting Syria".
In fact, the attack on Syria from the Mediterranean was led by the US Naval
Forces Europe, with headquarters in Naples-Capodichino, commanded by Admiral
James Foggo, who at the same time commands the Allied Joint Force Command
Naples with headquarters at Lago Patria (Naples).
The war operation was supported by the US Naval Air Station Sigonella and the
Niscemi station of the US MUOS system of naval transmissions. As the radar
tracks show, the US RQ-4 Global Hawk spy drones, taking off from Sigonella,
played a key role in the attack on Syria, attack supported by air tankers to
refuel the jet fighters.
Italy therefore shares the responsibility for a war action that violates the
most elementary norms of international law. It is not yet known what its
consequences will be, but it is certain that it feeds the flames of war.
Although premier Gentiloni assures that "it cannot be the beginning of an
