But as we have already seen with the refugee crisis and the ISIS terror, what happens in Syria doesn't stay in Syria. Now, after a ban that had been largely effective for almost a hundred years, chemical weapons are being used regularly and systematically to terrorize a civilian population, and not just in Syria. Although the HRW report deals just with Syria, I have seen recent reports of CW use by the government in Sudan.
In the last six months the Syrian government has used war planes, helicopters, and ground forces to deliver chlorine and sarin in Damascus, Hama, idLib, and Aleppo. That's widespread and systematic use of chemical weapons which could amount to crimes against humanity.HRW Report online - Death by Chemicals:The Syrian Government’s Widespread and Systematic Use of Chemical Weapons
This new chemical weapons use against civilians is being done with complete impunity and almost no protests in the West against this terrible resurgence. The attitude of the western peace and justice movements has been most shameful. Groups like Code Pink and Veterans for Peace have acted as defense counsel for the killers. As long as the killers weren't called out, they remained quiet, but when the killers were "caught," and faced the "trial" of public opinion, as with Assad in 2013 and today, they have come forward with a vigorous defense that begins by "questioning the evidence."
When it comes to the fight against the return of chemical warfare, the "Left" has been in the smoke screen business.
This HRW video also reveals new evidence about Khan Sheikhoun that blows away Dr. Theodore A. Postol's sarin pipe-bomb theory. It is just as well that he has abandoned it. Now Dr. Ted has been shown to be an incompetent fool willing to go to any length to please Putin. He is totally exposed. Still there are many, on both the "Left" and the Right that have made Postol's conclusions, backed by Postol's supposed expertise, the keystone of their defense of Syrian mass murderer President Bashar al-Assad in the case of Khan Sheikhoun. I call this group Postol's Apostles, and I am impatiently waiting to hear what they have to say now. This list is by no means complete, but it's a start...
US President Donald Trump’s unfounded decision to blame Damascus for using chemical weapons to justify an attack on Syria has endangered his own goal of destroying the Islamic State (Daesh), former US Chief of Naval Operations scientific advisor Theodore Postol told Sputnik.

Why is US Media Ignoring Prof. Postol's Study on Syria Chemical Weapons Attack?https://t.co/3885l08LLn pic.twitter.com/dpptGqFiqM— Ron Paul Institute (@RonPaulInstitut) April 24, 2017
The expert's report was ignored by the vast majority of major English-language media outlets.
Theodor Postol on @RT_com . Why no western media coverage? This is expert analysis by a leader in this discipline.https://t.co/8RmgqyX96a https://t.co/qT7COMR2W2— Huginn (@Skeptickler) April 18, 2017

Postol’s exhaustive critique of the White House report...
The Nation spoke to Postol over the weekend.
“What I think is now crystal clear,” he said, “is that the White House report was fabricated and it certainly did not follow the procedures it claimed to employ.”

The Jewish media continues to frame the attack as Assad thumbing his nose and challenging the West to attack him because he’s a demented maniac, but that makes no sense as the Syrian government continues to adamantly deny it committed this act.
That is because their entire justification for pre-emptively striking the Syrian army airport was based entirely on images of this hole with a gas can in it. Weapon’s experts like Postol posit that the men in the video below in contact with it would’ve dropped dead on the spot.

Guest Column by Eric Zuesse: After detailed decimation of President Trump’s ‘intelligence’ ‘justifying’ his invasion of Syria, the MIT specialist on such intelligence-analysis, Dr. Theodore Postol, concludes:
Robert L. Borosage, The Nation
It cited credible independent groups concluding that nerve gas was used, and Amnesty International reported evidence that pointed to an air-launched chemical attack. Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor Theodore Postol has aggressively questioned many of these claims, however.
Ann Garrison, Black Agenda Report
A top scientist in weaponry and the physics of explosions at the nation’s foremost institution of technology says the chemical event that the U.S. used as a pretext to attack Syria could not have happened the way the White House says it did. MIT Professor Emeritus Theodore Postol says the bogus U.S. reports indicate “a willingness to use intelligence claims that are false to make political points and political arguments.”
