Play it Again, Uncle Sam… Debunked Syrian Chemical Weapons Card in Ukraine
The CW card is a complete dud. That Western media are playing it shows that their role is as sinister as mass drug-dealing.
Western media are now accusing Russian forces of preparing to use chemical weapons (CW) of mass destruction in Ukraine, thereby making the case for greater NATO military intervention.
