Russians say Syria gas attack " staged and direct by Britain"

How is Trump going to excuse his dear buddy Putin this time? This sounds like something from one of Trump's home-crowd speeches.

" Russia says UK led ‘staged’ Syria gas attack"
[apnews.com]
The Russian military says that an alleged chemical attack in Syria was staged and directed by Britain.

Volunteer first responders and activists claimed a chemical attack by the Syrian government killed over 40 people in the town of Douma, which drew international outrage and prompted Washington and its allies to consider a military response. Moscow warned against any strikes and threatened to retaliate.

Russian Defense Ministry spokesman, Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov, released statements by medics from Douma's hospital who said a group of people toting video cameras entered the hospital, shouting that its patients were struck with chemical weapons and causing panic. The medics said none of the patients were hurt by chemicals.

Konashenkov said Friday that Britain was "directly involved in the provocation," but didn't elaborate or provide evidence.

I'm always a little skeptical of these reports of atrocities from Syria, since I suspect there's more than enough horrible stuff on both sides.

But this kind of stuff pushes me to give the Brits (and French, etc) the great benefit of the doubt.

And to ponder the ethics of putting an end to the.problem for real.

Well prior to the attack, Russian agit-prop started pushing the narrative that the attack was fake news. Yes, that's right. Vlad knew all about Assad's plans, and SUPPORTED IT.

The White Helmets, also known as the Syria Civil Defense, is a nongovernmental, nonprofit organization led by Raed al-Saleh, a Syrian who helped found the group, and funded by Mayday Rescue, an organization founded by James Le Mesurier, a former intelligence officer with the British military.

Are you claiming that Snopes is lying about the founder of Syrian "White Helmets", James Le Mesurier, being former intelligence officer with the British military?
Is Snopes your Big Lie, Ammo?....
