WATCH: George Galloway’s Latest Conspiracy Theory

Last time it was Israel, this time it’s the Saudis who are responsible for chemical weapons attacks in Syria. Anyone but Assad then. You go JoCo…

        CYNICAL OLD MAN says:

        Guido seems to have fallen for the propaganda of Hague and Kerry hook,line and sinker. You don’t have to like Galloway to know that he has a point regarding the Saudis. Dale Gavlak, an experienced reporter on Middle Eastern affairs, said pretty much the same thing after she interviewed witnesses and rebel supporters at the location of the gas attack. The article she wrote appeared on the Mint Press website, which became jammed with the number of people accessing the site to read the article.

        Gavlak wrote that a number of people, including the father of a rebel fighter killed when the gas was released, admitted the rebels had received cylinders of poison gas from Saudi Prince Bandar al Saud, without being told what they were. The rebels, including the interviewee’s son, mishandled the cylinders and accidentally activated the release of the gas.

        The Saudis have been active in destabilising the Middle East for years. Bandar is Intelligence Chief of the Saudi government and is well in with the CIA. He has also been funding the rebels in Syria from the start.

        It certainly makes more sense than the story of Assad deciding to use gas, giving the Yanks the excuse to attack him and the West to turn against him, even though he was winning the civil war.

        Don’t forget also that UN Inspector, Carla del Potro, went public with her view that the rebels were responsible for an earlier gas attack in Alleppo, one month earlier.

        You shouldn’t discount the message just because you don’t like the messenger.

        There are crazy things wrong with George Galloway like his strong advocacy for both Islam and same sex marriage. However with this he is right and of course as with most things other than tomorrow’s weather the BBC is wrong.
        As a theory, chemical weapons could reasonably have been supplied to the rebels by Israel, CIA, MI6, French intelligence or the Saudis. Galloway chose Israel as his preferred theory. Since then information has come to light that it was most likely the Saudis that supplied the chemical weapons to the rebels.

          FACT : The BBC is NEVER right about tomorrows or indeed TODAYS weather .

          Just listen to Radio Five Dead at 4.27 am every morning .
          When they re not forgetting to run the weather forecast completely either because the mong presenter has overrun or because the whole schedule has been dropped by some asinine decision to relay LIVE every moment of a dullard sporting event that is taking place on the other side of the world — which a Producer with a sliver of intelligence would have availed on radio 5 sports extra so only the anoraks need listen — they are eulogising about weather events in every country and hemisphere other than the british isles .
          when they realise they are supposed to be covering
          Blighty they have again overrun and have 30 seconds to give a detailed weather forecast for the coming day which by definition tells no one anything and confuses worse confounds .

        Nevertheless, Mr Rumsfeld arranged for the Iraqis to receive billions of pounds in loans to buy weapons and CIA Director William Casey used a Chilean front company to supply Iraq with cluster bombs.

      The only way to intervene to save Syria, would be to invade and occupy it and that option is not on anyone’s overt agenda and the resulting war would kill far more Syrians than the current war.

      It is NOT moral apathy. It is acceptance that there is NOTHING GOOD that we can do to help militarily. ALL other military options are very likely to have a much worse outcome for the Syrian people than only sending aid to help refugees and giving a big push to the international diplomatic efforts to secure a ceasefire, the removal of chemical weapons from both the Assad Regime and all the rebel groups and a continuous push for a negotiated peace.

    Why did the BBC invite him on to talk if he was not invited as an expert ?

    From UN report:

    ’20. Influential Sunn! clerics from several Arab States, including Saud! Arab!a and Egypt, called on Sunn!s to join the j!had against the Government of the Syr!an Arab Republic and its supporters. Appeals, echoing an earlier call made by Al-Qa!da leader Zawah!ri, urged that money and weapons be provided to anti-government armed groups. ‘

    http://www.ohchr.org/EN/HRBodies/HRC/RegularSessions/Session24/Documents/A_HRC_24_46_en.DOC

    Doesn’t prove supply of CW, but is confirmation that weapons to insurgents are sourcing from Saud!.

    7 countries are currently not party to CWC:

    Signed, but not ratified: B’urma, !srael
    Not Signed: A’ngola, North K’orea, E’gypt, South S’udan, Syr!a

    This WorldTribune article by Bodansky (GIS Defense/ Foreign Affairs) is probably Galloway’s source:

    h**p://tinyurl.com/pn9lpqn

    CW Inspectors report may be able to confirm that Sar!n used on Aug 21 was not military grade, and consensus is forming in foreign policy / defense circles that Saud! Arab!a is the likely source.

    imo I think that JoCo lost it a little, especially when confronted by the statement that the beeb was a mouthpiece for war.

    It just shows how the BBC is out of control. Coburn had her own agenda and it showed. Very poor to show it so clearly.

    GG is right, the BBC’s warmongering agenda is blatant. Only certain guests are treated with this hostile bias, and its always ones who are opposed to the criminal establishment.

    ‘This Report presents the evidence gathered by the U.S. Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations (the “Subcommittee”) establishing that Charles Pasqua, the former French Minister of the Interior, and George Galloway, a newly-reelected Member of the British Parliament, were granted substantial oil allocations from the Hussein regime under the U.N. Oil for Food Program.’

    Galloway fingered on the BBC website – surprised he hasn’t sued because of course it’s all lies.

    Any comments from his supporters on this?

    Galloway can be puzzlingly stupid, and yet is a brilliant orator. His demolition of the Senate committees that accused him of taking bribes from Saddam was a tour de force.

    If he’s keeping New Labour out though who can be sad about that?

    George Galloway is a lying anti-semetic friend of the Arab Terrorist.There is not a shred of truth in any thing he says. He is a disgrace to Parliament and to the people of Bradford
