Statement from Syria

Syria-based British journalist Tom Duggan tells the truth.

Even the war-mongering New York Times is admitting that there is no confirmed pretext for war.  In an article called Pentagon Urges Greater Caution on Imminent Strike Against Syria they report:

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis sought on Thursday to slow down an imminent strike on Syria, reflecting mounting concerns at the Pentagon that a concerted bombing campaign could escalate into a wider conflict between Russia, Iran and the West.

In the White House meeting, according to three administration officials, Mr. Mattis said the United States, Britain and France must provide convincing proof that the Syrian government used chemical weapons to attack the rebel-held town of Douma, where more than 40 people died and hundreds were sickened.

I've seen this same story reported by Newsweek and other media.  It's clear that calmer heads are slowing down this out-of-control administration.

Please do what you can to help.
