Attacks on Syria – Dominion Post – 14 April 2018 Middle East, New Zealand, News, Syria, Wellington Add comments Apr 142018 Thank you to Kay Weir for her excellent letter which was published in the Dominion Post as the lead letter to the editor on Saturday 14 April. One Response to “Attacks on Syria – Dominion Post – 14 April 2018” prose says: April 16, 2018 at 12:31 am Bravo, Kay Weir! The stuff website doesn’t seem to have letters to the editor any more, and by the time I saw this, the Press Display version had been overwritten. Here is a text transcription of Kay’s letter: Wars based on United States-led Coalition lies destroyed Iraq and Libya. Is Syria next? Terrorist groups in Syria use chemical weapons but Syrian chemical attack (Dominion Post April 11) ignores this. The Washington Post, late In 2016, reported that Islamic State had used chemical weapons in Syria and Iraq 52 times since 2014. A declassified August 2012 US Defence Intelligence Agency report notes that terrorist groups had been supported in Syria by US-led allies since at least 2012 to undermine the Assad government. Syrians have suffered greatly from their orchestrated violence. Syria asked Russia for support in 2016 to prevent it becoming another Iraq and 95 per cent of Damascus territory has been regained. Recent unverified reports of chlorine gas use in East Ghouta were likely staged by the last terrorist pocket to provide an excuse for the US-led coalition to intervene to stop their final evacuation. Syria’s army, with Russian support, has liberated tens of thousands of civilians trapped for six years by terrorists in horrifying situations. Thousands of people are being cared for in relief centres run by Syrian and Russia medics and volunteers. Are we to just stand by and watch while America launches “new smart missiles” at Syria’s lawful government?
