Syria: What Just Happened?

This essay on the ramifications of the United States’ Deep State missile attack on Syria.  The OPCW – Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons – is an independent organization formed to implement the provisions of the Chemical Weapons Convention.  There’s 192 member states, including the U.S. and Russia.

Russia sponsored a resolution in the U.N. for the U.N. to endorse the OPCW’s investigation of the alleged chemical attack in Syria.  Not surprisingly, the U.S. blocked the U.N. from endorsing the mission, which will still proceed as planned.  I would have  thought the U.S. would have led call for an independent investigation…

Eric Zeusse of the Strategic Culture Foundation writes:

So: what is at stake here from the OPCW investigation is not only the international legitimacy of Syria’s Government, but the international legitimacy of the Governments that invaded it on April 13th. These are extremely high stakes, even if no court in the world will possess the authority to adjudicate the guilt — either if the US and its allies lied, or if the Syrian Government lied.
