and why all roads lead to Tehran. Western media has accused the Syrian government of launching a chemical attack in an area east of Damascus that killed hundreds of civilians. It is the same accusation they had on Saddam Hussein who allegedly ordered a chemical attack in the town of Halabja in Southern Kurdistan, a Kurdish territory killing more than 3000 people and more than 7000 injured. U.S. President George H.W. Bush used the incident to justify an invasion when he said "The dictator who is assembling the world's most dangerous weapons has already used them on whole villages, leaving thousands of his own citizens dead, blind or disfigured." Many doubts surfaced including a former Central Intelligence Agency senior political analyst and professor at the Army War College, Stephen C. Pelletiere who wrote an opinion piece in the New York Times in 2003 called 'A War Crime or an Act of War?, he said: This much about gassing at Halabja we undoubtedly know: it came about in the course of a battle between Iraqis and Iranians. Iraq used chemical weapons to try to kill Iranians. Iraq used chemical weapons to try to kill Iranians who had seized the town, which is in northern Iraq not far from the Iranian border. The Kurdish civilians who died had the misfortune to be caught up in that exchange. But they were not Iraq's main target. US media is receiving reports from the Western backed rebels that accuse Assad for the atrocities committed by his government. They are using the information to justify an invasion of Syria. However, RT news reported that there was evidence the attack was pre-planned according to Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman, Aleksandr Lukashevich who said "We're getting more new evidence that this criminal act was of a provocative nature," he stressed. "In particular, there are reports circulating on the Internet, in particular that the materials of the incident and accusations against government troops had been posted for several hours before the so-called attack. Thus, it was a pre-planned action." Ironically, the Kurds who Saddam Hussein was accused of murdering are targeted by the same rebels in the north of Syria by Al-Nusra front group and the Free Syrian Army. RT news and other international news outlets reported that more than 450 Kurdish people including women and children were killed in the village of Tal Abyad near the Turkish border. Western governments and their media outlets accuse the Assad government of a chemical attack that allegedly killed hundreds of people, but the claim was made by the Western -backed rebels. Russia says the evidence suggests that the weapons were fired from Rebel-held territory. Last March, The US and Israel claimed that Syrian forces launched a chemical attack in the al-Assal village. located north from the city of Aleppo. A Russian-led investigation declared militants were behind the attack. The U.S., Israel and now France want to invade Syria and remove President Assad and divide Syria into several small territories. They are interested in the Balkanization of Syria, the same method that was used to break up Yugoslavia in the 1990's. The rebels are supported and have been trained by the West to start a war against Syria.
