Unprovoked act of aggression
Sir, – The attack on Syria by Washington and her puppet states of Britain and France was a flagrant breach of international law.
It was an unprovoked act of aggression against a sovereign state who had not attacked or threatened any of the belligerents. According to the Nuremberg tribunal, the supreme international crime is aggression.
An utterly corrupt and dishonest Western media promoted the government claims without producing any evidence to substantiate them.
US officials and the media tell us that the illegal US missile attack on Syria destroyed chemical weapons sites where chlorine and sarin are stored/ manufactured.
If this were true, would not a lethal cloud have been released that would have taken the lives of far more people than claimed in the alleged Syrian chemical attack on Douma? Would not the US missile attack be identical to a chemical weapons attack, and thus place the US and its vassals in the same category as Washington is attempting to place Assad and Putin?
There is no question that had any Russian personnel been killed it would have brought about retaliation and escalation.
The world should understand that because of the insane Trump regime, the continued existence of life on earth is very much in question. Alan Hinnrichs. 2 Gillespie Terrace, Dundee.
