As horrifying images of Syrian men, women and children dead, dying, foaming at the mouth reach the world, President Trump blamed Obama’s weakness and lack of action for the chemical weapon attack. It seems the media is blaming Russia and Syria and Russia denies that they had anything to do with the use of chemical weapons. Russia says it was the Syrian rebels and not the Syrian regime of Assad.
Russian officials blamed Syrian rebels on Wednesday for a chemical attack which killed scores of people, many of them women and children, and has been widely attributed to the Syrian government.
The attack on the northwestern town of Khan Sheikhoun drew international censure on Tuesday, as images circulated of children lying limp and elderly men foaming at the mouth.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based monitoring group, said that at least 72 people were killed, making it the deadliest chemical assault since 2013, when the Syrian government dropped sarin on the Damascus suburbs, killing hundreds of people as they slept and bringing the United States and Europe to the verge of military intervention.
