“Conspiracy theorists”

Throughout the almost eight years of war against Syria those of us in the west sharing about the reality of the situation…

1) That this war was manufactured by the US and allies for regime change using terrorist proxy militants; and

2) The Syrian government did not use chemical weapons against civilians.

 … are typically accused of many things including being “traitors” to  our home countries, Russian trolls and bots, “Assad apologists” (I  personally am a President Assad supporter – not an apologist), whackos,  and of course, conspiracy theorists.

But here is a short list of  people – who may be considered “more credible” than we independent or  citizen journalists, social-media activists, and alternate media  watchers – saying things along the same lines as we all  have been. I’ve  added just one reference for each though several on this list have  written or spoken extensively on the conflict. By the way, this list is  not all inclusive, there are many I’m sure I’ve missed. Also putting  them on this list DOES NOT mean that I support everything each and every  one has ever said, done, or written!

General Wesley Clark –  former Supreme Commander of NATO Forces in Europe. In 2007 he revealed  that immediately after 9/11 the US planned to ‘take out’ 7 countries in 5  years – none of which was involved in 9/11 including Syria. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B3B5xzApMZg
