Skip to comments.Syrian war: The boy at the centre of conflicting tales about alleged Douma chemical attack
Posted on 04/28/2018 8:11:35 AM PDT by raiderboy
Depending on who you believe, 11-year-old Hassan Diab is the victim of a chemical gas attack ordered by Bashar al-Assad's brutal regime, or: he's an unwitting pawn in a fabrication by rebel forces who deliberately staged the attack as a "provocation".
Either way, the Syrian boy has become the face of a broader story about war propaganda: initially portrayed by the West as a victim, he's since become the face of Russia's claims that the chemical attack was a fiction.
Hassan is the boy filmed at a hospital in Douma late on April 7, with apparent symptoms from being gassed with chlorine or the nerve agent sarin.
He is seen rubbing his eyes as he stands alongside other patients, who appear distressed, unconscious or seriously ill.

It should be embarrassing to the regime-change cadre here in FR and elsewhere, who accuse anyone seeking truth of being “blame America first”, but it won’t be. The siren song for the neocons to hold hands and singing kumbaya with light loafers Lindsay is compelling for them.
We need to encourage Trump to continue following his foreign policy instincts. We can laugh at the neocons that they celebrated the destruction of abandoned buildings. Awe.
Reminds me of the prez inviting Syrian rapefugees into your daughters n wives, mothers and sisters neighborhoods because a child’s body washed up right in front of a camera. Convenient.
Syria is in an information fog with a plague of information, misinformation and disinformation on a scale maybe never before seen. I do not think it is possible for any public to responsibly say they can see through the fog.
Only time, long after the war in Syria ends (???) might history manage to sort some of the truth out of the fog.
Who cares? They are islamists. Hit ‘em again.
Despite having people on the ground there, the American mainstream media isn’t covering the Douma story because it doesn’t support their Assad/Putin ‘bad guy’ narrative.
No , You actually have it right in front of you. The little boy was in the Isis staged videos— you can see him crying . We were told he was “gassed”. He tells you himself he was “hosed” — not gassed, His father tells you the boy was hosed and used in the isis video. There is no question. There is no fog. There is no gas. We can avert our gaze but that does not change proven fact that the whole thing was staged . 15 people used by isis in the staged video have come forward and testified it was staged. No fog.

Kosovo comes to mind.
It is completely covered up. I had to find this Australian article. Why is this not on FOX? Why is it nowhere. You look at the little boy being jerked around in the hospital. We all saw it and were sad. Now we find out it was all a lie, He was hosed with water by isis. His father had to find him. His father denounces the exploitation of his son and hosing the boy to make it look like gas. There was never evidence to support the attack. Now there is clear and convincing evidence that there was NO “GAS AttacK” at all. Where is the media that failed to find evidence to support a possible attack on Russia,
I think we need to get the hell out of there post haste. I am now convinced that Trump knew this. I think the puny ,”nothing burger” attack was all arranged. It really is embarrassing.
You are right. If we bombed Kosovo to save Muslim homes— why are we not invading South Africa to save white farmers?
There are American reporters there. CBS had a reporter taken to the Isis chemical Lab in Douma clearly proving it was isis but his story was spiked!! Look it up. ONE AMERICA NEWS has clearly repeatedly reported there is no evidence of Chlorine or anything else in Douma. Why is that disregarded?
It’s all staged. There was no gas attack. Pearson Sharp of OAN did a video interview of a bunch of people in Douma. They all said there was no gas attack.
We bombed Kosovo to kill evil Serbs who were stopping sainted muslim Albanian former SS troops who just needed more Lebensraum ...
His instincts, yes. His foreign policy instincts? He seems gullible about the roots of the problems in Syria, Ukraine, and the roles Israel and Saudi Arabia play in problems.
President' Trump seems to have recouped nicely since his big ME mistakes. He fired some people who maybe were too wedded to the globalist dark state. With Pompeo, he achieved the impossible on the Korean peninsula. His state visit for Macron was inspired.
The big blunder? President Trump never should've announced ahead of time he was pulling troops out of Syria. And the bogus chemical attack that followed? I'm surprised he didn't connect the dots. And Ukraine? He's buying into the Ukraine mess, where we toppled a legal government.
That's my take anyway. Pompeo's a bright guy and he's studied the military, history, and the law. I hope he transitions to Trump's global vision on nationalism, for all nations. Perhaps the foreign policy mistakes will end.
Yeah, so where are all the pro-Syria intervention phonies? Waiting for the next staged attack I suppose. Maybe they will stage one here on our soil? We have to remember, for the neocons, neolibs, socialists, GOPe (and the like), a few broken eggs are just fine if one is cooking a globalist omelet. They don’t care about our Constitution, our faith in God, our families, our traditional values. Guns and butter, foreign intervention, Sodomite “rights”, gun grabbing, baby killing, Obamacare are all deep down just fine with them, so long as fedgov is boss, globalism is safe, war profits are healthy, and they have control of the person at the top of the Executive branch.
Anyone see the picture of W at his Mom’s funeral, with arms around Hillaroid and his wife, WJC behind, ear-to-ear grin? Cheshire cat? A picture speaks a thousand words.

Why are we not hearing this even on Fox. This is gigantic. I was very sure there was no evidence, People are stupid. I heard today that 51% in this country actually believe there was collusion between Trump and Russia in the election. Mind you there is not a shred of evidence— NOTHING!! Sheep be4lieve anything you put in their ear!!
You are unfortunately dead Right ,Georgia Girl 2. There are people here on FR that actually believed that Assad was gassing his own people based on Isis propaganda, They are strangely quiet today now that the evidence is here.
