US beating drums of World War III: Activist
The United States has launched a missile attack on Syrian soil by resorting to a false-flag attack, says a Syrian activist.
“The US hasn’t even waited for their Congress to make a decision. They have acted unilaterally against the United Nations, against the UN Security Council,” Mimi al-Laham, a Syrian activist from Sydney, told Press TV on Friday.
“And when you do that basically you’re inviting a global war,” she added.
On President Donald Trump’s order, some 60 Tomahawk missiles were fired from US warships deployed to the Mediterranean at the Shayrat airfield from where a chemical weapons attack was allegedly launched this week.
Laham said there are some elements in the US governmental bodies who want war in the Middle East and are not happy with the Trump administration’s policy on Syria.
“So, they resort to false-flag attacks to go ahead with their plots for the Arab nation,” she said.
“There is a deep state in the US government and they were not happy with Trump’s … statements that the US should not go to war with Syria, that [Syrian President Bashar] Assad should stay in power and that his people must decide,” she added
