(Worthy News) - There is “lots of evidence” that chemical weapons are being prepared by Syrian government forces in Idlib in northwest Syria, the new U.S. adviser for Syria said on Thursday, as he warned of the risks of an offensive on the country’s last big rebel enclave.

“I am very sure that we have very, very good grounds to be making these warnings,” said Jim Jeffrey, who was named on Aug. 17 as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s special adviser on Syria overseeing talks on a political transition in that country.

“Any offensive is to us objectionable as a reckless escalation,” Jeffrey told a few reporters in his first interview on the situation in Syria since his appointment. “There is lots of evidence that chemical weapons are being prepared.” [ Source: Reuters (Read More...) ]

  1. There are still elements and forces trying to manufacture proof and implicate that Assad is using chemical weapons. It has been proven false three times ..... but that's not going to stop them from continuing to try.
    What we DO know is that the Pentagon still has a plan to conquer the Middle East. But for whom? President Trump has made it clear that he wants out of the Middle East and wants to allow Putin to handle it ..... which he has been doing quite well.
    Much of the push to continue to implicate Assad comes from elements inside Israel. Hmmmm ..... now, what could the motive be there?
