MOA's crash course on what the heck happened in Douma

From the same April 8 post at Moon of Alabama, Syria - Timelines Of 'Gas Attacks' Follow A Similar Scheme (Updated), I quoted in my just-published, Have Islamic State fighters in Syria received regulation U.S. uniforms yet? 

Well, he put three distinct topics in one post -- the timeline, the crash course, fairy tale that American forces are fighting ISIS -- so what am I supposed to do? Just give you a link?  Where's the fun in that? 

All right; here's the part about Douma. It's still the clearest and most succinct explanation I've found about key events leading up to the alleged chemical attack, about which an emergency UN Security Council meeting is being convened later today:
Over the last months the Syrian army secured 90% of 'rebel' enclave in east-Ghouta right next to the Syrian capital Damascus. Only the town of Douma, held by the Saudi financed Salafist Takfiris of Jaish al-Islam, was left in enemy hands. Negotiations about an evacuation of the terrorists were ongoing. At one point last week the hard-core leaders of Jaish al-Islam pulled their negotiators back from the talks and reportedly executed them. Jaish al-Islam wanted to essentially stay in place and keep all its weapons. The Russian negotiators did not agree with this. On Friday the negotiations failed.

Barrages of missiles and grenades from Douma hit Damascus. The 'rebel'-supporting Syrian Observatory reported several killed in Damascus and dozens of wounded. The Syrian army hit back with intensive air strikes and artillery fire on Douma.

The terrorists in Douma hold several thousand hostages who were abducted in 2013 from the town of Adra. The prisoners were paraded in cages. The abducted men were forced to dig the extensive tunnel network Jaish al-Islam uses to hide its weapons and fighters.

Two years ago Jaish al-Islam admitted that it used chemical weapons against a Kurdish suburb of Aleppo. Just two days ago the Russian military command said that it detected 'rebel' preparations for new false-flag gas attacks.

Now the terrorists and their supporters claim that a new "chemical weapon attack" happened and blame the Syrian government. A video of the alleged gas attack aftermath shows a basement with some 30 dead children between two and 10 years old. They seem to have suffocated, probably from carbon monoxide. Astonishingly there are no dead women or men -- only children under 10.

Russia, which has observers on the ground, rejects any claims of Syrian government involvement in the incident.

It is quite obvious that the "chemical weapon attack" is a false-flag event. The terrorists commit the crime and blame the Syrian government. They want the U.S. to attack the Syrian government.
Will Trump fall for this stunt and attack Syria? Or had he and his minions planned this series of events all along?
Thus ends the Douma part of b's post. His last remark isn't as far-fetched as it might seem. From an April 8 FARS report Terrorists Resort to False-Flag Chemical Attack Scenario again amid Syrian Army Rapid Advances in Douma:
Russia’s Defense Ministry stressed last month that “US instructors” were training militants to stage false flag chemical attacks in Southern Syria. The incidents were said to be a pretext for airstrikes on Syrian government troops and infrastructure.
“We have reliable information at our disposal that US instructors have trained a number of militant groups in the vicinity of the town of At-Tanf, to stage provocations involving chemical warfare agents in Southern Syria,” Russian General Staff Spokesman General Sergey Rudskoy said at a news briefing on Saturday.
“Early in March, the saboteur groups were deployed to the Southern de-escalation zone to the city of Dara'a, where the units of the so-called Free Syrian Army are stationed,” he added.
“They are preparing a series of chemical munitions explosions. This fact will be used to blame the government forces. The components to produce chemical munitions have been already delivered to the Southern de-escalation zone under the guise of humanitarian convoys of a number of NGOs,” the Spokesman stated.
This doesn't mean the claims about U.S. involvement in chemical weapons training are necessarily true, of course, but I think it does mean CENTCOM and/or the CIA have some explaining to do -- and washing their hands by saying a contractor might have gone a little too far with the training won't do. They knew what type of people they were dealing with in Jaish al-Islam. Not that the governments that want the U.S. to murder Syria's president and destroy his government for them would care. If the provocation brought about U.S. bombings of the Syrian seat of government they would look at any civilians killed in a chemical attack provocation as collateral damage, and all for a good cause.
