LogoPhere's Top Ten Ways to Tell When
You're Being Spoofed by False-Flag Sarin Attacks
that things have started to calm down a bit
after Donald T. Dildo dropped a load of Tomahawks on Syria last week, a lot of us can
resume pushing back against the insufferable idiots and anti-Assad
liars in government, MSM, and cyberspace who are trying to pin yet another
false-flag "sarin attack" on Bashar al-Assad in order to justify taking
him out. Following my
insistence that there was no "sarin attack" at Khan Sheikhoun
of people are asking: "How can we know it wasn't sarin?"
First of all, for the record, let me make
it absolutely clear that as one trained in neuropharmacology I know with
absolute certainty that the incident at KS, like the one in Ghouta in
2013, was not a sarin attack. I know, I know, I know . . . we've got
and his minions all claiming to have intelligence saying Assad gassed his
own people with sarin; we've Barbara Starr, CNN's chief anti-Assad
propagandist, claiming the US has damning SIGINT; we've got reports out of Turkey (of all places)
saying they have determined that samples they received are sarin. I
address all of this yada in my closing comments below, but for now I would
ask you to recall how the dufus/dishonest Bush crowd also
claimed to have intelligence in the run up to the Iraq War.
here's a little secret from 20 years of teaching and doing research in the
neurosciences: trust the biology. It doesn't matter what the
politicians and CIA, and MSM, and OPCW, and WHO say, if the biology does not show a sarin
attack, then there wasn't a sarin attack. And in the case of sarin, the
biology -- meaning symptoms and the absence of symptoms -- is not debatable, certainly when
there are multiple supposed-victims. If the videos did clearly show victims
exhibiting the symptoms of sarin intoxication, my position would be
somewhat less certain because most of the symptoms of sarin poisoning can
be easily faked. But when the videos FAIL TO SHOW the diagnostic symptoms of sarin, then you
know two things: 1) it was not sarin, and 2) the terrorists were too
stupid to fake the sarin symptoms.
After the Ghouta Massacre I wrote a book, Murder
in the SunMorgue that explains in deep detail how I
know that the Ghouta Massacre wasn't a sarin attack, and why I think the
victims there were probably executed with cyanide or carbon monoxide. Some of the
political and situational details are different with respect to the KS
incident, but the biology has not changed, and so most of what I concluded
about Ghouta is equally relevant now. The book is a free pdf
download and goes into deep detail regarding how organophosphates like
sarin kill people. I have put up a shorter version in three posts that
I continue to pound this theme in the present post,
which is a shorter version of
the short version and uses evidence from KS. But, again, the biology is the
key and that is not going to change from one event to another. This is not
speculation about motives, or zionism, or politics, or Sunni v. Shia, or .
. . No, sir/ma'am, this is pure biology and biology could care less
about all of that, and that's why the biology must come first in analyzing
what did and didn't happen in these incidents of alleged sarin use. So bookmark
this page and come back to it the next time the MSM lights up with
allegations that Assad has gassed his own people with sarin.
LogoPhere's Top Ten Ways to Tell When
Spoofed by a False-Flag Sarin Attack
#1: People intoxicated with sarin
don't look well. Ever. None of them.
It amazes me that I would even have to
raise this point. But what also amazes me is how often one see
perfectly healthy looking people being passed off as "sarin
victims" in these terrorists' vids. I mean the only thing that
would cause any objectively
skeptical person to think there is a problem with a lot of these people is context of their surroundings:
clinics with bodies on the floor. And yet so many
suckers see perfectly healthy looking people lying on gurneys and the suckers
automatically conclude that
the healthy looking person is a sarin victim. Don't be a
For instance, there is a video out of
KS last week that was produced by ex-Dr. Shajul Islam. I have recently
analyzed this vid in detail and refer to it in this post as V-002. Right at the end
of V-002 (09:55) a baby with earrings is shown on a clinic table with a blue
pad. The baby is crying and kicking -- after all she's a wee
infant, and that's what they do. A lot. But there is nothing obviously
wrong with this child. She is chubby. Her color is perfect, glowing pink. If
this same child had been videoed crying and kicking in the same way in
her crib at home, no one would think a thing of it.
V-002 @ 09:55
And yet because this baby is shown in a
video that purports to be about sarin victims, suckers immediately jump
to the conclusion that she has been exposed to sarin. I'm talkin' about
serious suckers like Donald T. Dildo. And suckers like Ivanka
who got upset and told her daddy he had to kick some Syrian butt
because Assad gassed the "beautiful babies" with sarin. They are
beautiful, but Assad didn't gas them. But never mind the clear evidence
of that, the next thing you know we've
got a bunch of Raytheon
Tomahawks being fired at Syria.
Don't be a bimbo like Invanka.
Don't fall for it. If a so-called "sarin
video" shows healthy looking people presented as victims, you can
pretty well conclude immediately that the video is a fraud regardless of
what else it shows. For reasons described
in detail below, no sarin victim ever looks healthy. Mostly they
suffer horribly for a few minutes immediately after exposure and then
die silently. Anyone who doesn't die immediately would look like
your worse hangover x1000.
#2: People intoxicated with sarin don't
gasp, cough, cry, or pant.
Anoxia is one of those medical conditions
that is either corrected immediately or never. Anoxia is when the amount of
oxygen in the blood drops too low to sustain life.
Anoxia is what sarin victims succumb to, and the reason is that sarin
paralyzes the muscles required to move air in and out of the lungs -- the
respiratory muscles. Understanding this simple pharmacological fact
is key to understanding so much of what is going on in the fake sarin vids.
When a person is poisoned by sarin, by the time the brain realizes it isn't
getting enough oxygen, it is too late to complain. The respiratory muscles
are also the muscles used to gasp, cough, pant, cry, and scream. But sarin
muscles, which is precisely why the person wants to gasp,
cough, pant, cry, scream. It's a negative feedback loop of the worst
These terrorists' videos depend on drama so
that suckers like Ivanka will get their panties in a twist, and a lot of that
drama comes from close-up views of people coughing and choking. The young fellow below, for
instance, is shown in a video of the KS incident I refer to as V-005
(YT log-in required, alternative here.).
This video has gone around the earth thousands of
times. The boy in question is seen at 00:53 in that vid panting,
coughing, and yet he's cherry-red. Look at those lips, cheeks, ears!
V-005 @ 00:53
I cannot tell you what the young man's
problem is, but my best guess would be either he's play-acting or he has
been poisoned with cyanide or carbon monoxide. What I can tell you is that,
contrary to what Sean Spicer thinks, this kid has not been poisoned with
sarin. If he had been, he wouldn't be able vigorously to pant and
cough the way he is.
Yes, a video of a person gasping for breath
really brings us to the edge of our collective seat. And we wish such people all the
best. But don't be a sucker: they are not dying of sarin
intoxication. Had they come into such bad fortune as to be poisoned by
sarin, they would have died painfully, but quietly, before the photographer
could get there. (If the photographer was close enough to the attack get the photos and vids we see
on the internet, he would be
dead, too. This whole thing is goofy from a biological point of view.)
#3: People intoxicated with sarin don't
often foam at the mouth.
When I was a kid, it was a pretty easy
thing to gross-out a substitute teacher by putting some baking soda in
your mouth and then taking a mouthful of Pepsi. If you did it just right you
could have foam coming out your nose and the whole class in stitches,
except the teacher. Gross.
And gross is why so many of these
terrorists' videos feature gasping victims with foam coming out of their
noses and mouths. In some cases they show people long dead, but
still foaming at the mouth, which could well be Pepsi and baking soda for
all we know. And then there are the talking experts being
interviewed by the MSM and always using the same, lame, useless phrase:
"consistent with." They will say just about anything is
"consistent with" sarin poisoning, including foaming at the
mouth. It's not.
The physiological issue with the foaming is much
the same as with coughing and panting. Sarin does produce an
increase in the production of mucus in the airways -- bronchorrhea -- but
if the respiratory muscles are compromised or totally paralyzed, all of
that mucus will not likely be pushed into the mouth and nose, nor will there be
enough air-flow to aerate the mucus into a foam. The more common
scenario is that the mucus will plug-up the airways and add to the
victim's respiratory problems.
I have read of one case where sarin
produced massive foaming at the mouth, but in that case the victim, a
human guinea pig, received the antidote atropine immediately after exposure to sarin in a
military test facility. The atropine obviously prevented the respiratory
muscles from completely freezing up in his case, and, in fact, it took
many hours for the private to die. And so because of the atropine he could
generate enough force with his respiratory muscles to force the mucus into
his mouth and nose and force air through the mucus, producing a foam.
But atropine has to be given immediately to
be effective, and so it is highly unlikely that many of the victims seen
in circumstances such as those shown in the terrorists' vids would ever
have access to the antidote, hence it is unlikely they would have enough
lung function to produce foaming. When you see it, be skeptical.
#4 & #5: People intoxicated with sarin
defecate massively and urinate all over themselves.
Many of the "victims" shown in
these dramatic videos from KS are shown in their underwear, which is, in
an of itself, a little odd because when I worked in an ER, one of the first
things we did with seriously ill patients of all kinds was to cut all of
their clothes off so the clothes didn't get in the way or contaminate
anything. But the point I want to make here is that in these terrorists'
videos if the victims had soiled themselves, it would be immediately
evident. And not just for the ones shown in their underwear.
And the reason I say it is that sarin
squeezes the smooth muscles of the intestines and bladder so hard that everything is going to
come out. I cannot in my worst nightmare image the stench of a
clinic in which a dozen sarin patients are being attended to. And yet
never -- not one time -- do you see incontinent patients or
medical staff reacting as if there is a stench. And not to put too fine of
a point on it, but we are not talking about a bout of diarrhea that we are
all familiar with. The feces produced by sarin would be more like a normal
bowel movement but immediate, uncontrollable, and voluminous.
For these reasons, the lack of feces and
urine staining a person's clothes is one of the most evident clues
that the person has not been poisoned by sarin. For example, you can be
absolutely certain that the young man shown in the screen grab below from
vid V-005 was not intoxicated with sarin, contrary to what the video
attempts to portray.
V-005 at 00:37
As a side note, in the same vid, V-005,
there are several similar examples of people's underwear being so
immaculate you'd think that when they left home in the morning they knew
there were going to be appearing in the movies without their pants on. For
instance, in the same vid there is a ghastly scene of a
"victim" is being sprayed with water and in the background there is
a young man hopping around in his socks and pristine skivvies as if he
were getting dressed or undressed.
V-005 at 01:32, color enhanced
#6: People intoxicated with
sarin will vomit up everything they haven't defecated.
From both the physiological and evidentiary
points of view, this diagnostic point is much the same as the last
one. Sarin causes the smooth muscle that make up the stomach walls to
contract so tightly that the person will vomit profusely and the evidence
of such emesis will be readily visible.
If dozens or hundreds of victims can be
seen in a collection of videos and many or most of the victims do not have
any indication of having vomited, you are not looking at a sarin
attack. I have waded through dozens and dozens of these videos
purporting to show Assad's sarin attacks on his own people, I have seen
hundreds of "victims" in those videos, and in all of that
supposed sarin-carnage I have only seen two possible examples of
#7 & #8: People intoxicated
with sarin will produce a large volume of tears and a large volume of watery
One of the fetishes of the people making
these anti-Assad sarin-porn movies is pin-point pupils, aka "miosis."
And this is one of the things that the paid, know-nothing experts on CNN
and elsewhere will say: "Yep, those pinpoint pupils are consistent
with sarin poisoning."
Sure, sarin causes miosis, but then so do a
lot of drugs and if you were going to fake a sarin attack, it would be
simple to produce miosis in some people and then show close-ups of their
eyes to prove to the world -- with the help of gullible or complicit
"experts" -- that Assad dropped sarin on his own people.
But in the absence of the symptoms discussed above, miosis doesn't mean
Nevertheless, it's really the only symptom the terrorists have
to convince the world sarin was used. And so in a lot of these
terrorists' vids -- like V-002
-- you will see radical, dangerous anti-Assad Sunnis like Shajul Islam shinning flashlights in
"victims'" eyes to demonstrate pin-point
pupils. But what they are actually demonstrating is that the victim
was not exposed to sarin.
Vid-002 at 09:14
And the reason I make a point of it is that
sarin acts directly on the tear glands to produce a constant,
uncontrollable stream of tears. And yet what the terrorists show us when
shinning the flashlight in "victims'" eyes is not just
pin-point pupils but also absolutely dry eyes, meaning the person could
not have possibly been exposed to sarin. And they do this over and
over again, proving every time what liars they are. You can find
dozens of these pin-point pupil episodes, and none showing excessive
tears, except for kids who are crying.
And it is much the same with the salivary
glands -- sarin directly stimulates them, too. And this would
produce a large amount of saliva and copious drooling. So when the
terrorist cameraman zooms in for the iconic shot of some poor distressed
child's face close-up, and the child is not drooling like a bull mastiff
at dinner time, then we
have more proof that sarin was not involved in whatever the child's
problem is, and most likely, neither was Assad.
#9: People intoxicated with
sarin turn blue. Always.
Physiologically, dying from sarin is a lot
like dying at the hands of a python, metaphorically speaking. They both
produce death by preventing the respiratory muscles from working;
consequently, spent oxygen in the blood cannot be replaced, and when oxygen
levels drop, people turn blue. The medical term is "cyanosis."
Such cyanosis is most evident in the lips,
cheeks, ears, nose where the blood vessels come close to the surface of
the skin. Finger tips, toes and nipples are also prone to cyanosis.
If a person is intoxicated by sarin, cyanosis will likely be evident
before they are dead.
The image below is a cyanotic child, but not
a child who has
been exposed to sarin. So few people have ever been exposed to sarin
that I doubt that any such picture exists anywhere in the world. But the picture, which
is of a child with blue-baby syndrome, illustrates what a person exposed
to sarin would look like.
Cyanosis in blue-baby syndrome
Don't get spoofed. If the
"victims" in a sarin attack aren't as blue as this baby, then
they aren't victims in a sarin attack.
#10: People intoxicated with
sarin never turn pink or red. Never.
From the foregoing description of
cyanosis, it should not surprise you to learn that people exposed to
sarin -- certainly sarin at high enough concentrations to kill -- do
not turn red or pink, which is called being rubicund.
Sarin causes anoxia, which causes the blood to turn bluish, which
causes people to turn bluish, but blood that has large amounts of oxygen
is bright red, which is why anyone who has been intoxicated with sarin
cannot, physiologically speaking, be rubicund.
And yet look at the victims in those
sarin-porn flicks that the terrorists put up on YouTube. Look at
their skin color. Over and over and over the skin color is pink
to bright red. Look at the victims shown in the images under
points #1, #2, #3, #4 & #5 above. All of them are
"supposed" to be sarin victims. All of them are healthy
pink. Or look at this youngster, who is shown in strong sunlight
during the alleged KS sarin attack.
V-005 @ 01:40
The toddler is being dramatically
snatched up off of the bed of a truck by a White Helmets guy who then,
with the cameras whirring, runs off with her towards no where in
particular and for no discernable reason. The child's color is
amazingly rubicund, which means 100% that she is not a victim of a
sarin attack -- not a sarin attack by Bashar al-Assad or by anyone
else. Ivanka and Donald T. Dildo, for all of their apparent concern
for children, need to STFD and STFU until they understand the
situation sufficiently to respond appropriately. They have already
killed four Syrian children with their Tomahawk attack on al-Shayrat.
They are not helping the situation.
In the introduction I noted that the US
government and the MSM claim to have evidence that Assad dropped sarin on
Khan Sheikhoun from Su-22 fighter jets. For instance, on Apr11|17
the White House released a four-page
statement, which it calls an "assessment." Not an
"intelligence assessment," just an "assessment."
It is not a formal Intelligence Estimate. It is not even a formal
assessment of the intelligence community. Not a single one of the 17
intelligence agencies has signed the document -- nobody has. It is not dated. It has no letterhead or any other indicia of being
an official government document. It is, basically D.T.Dildo's bullshit
reduced to a few typed pages, probably by his 30-something Israel-first
minions: Jared Kushner, Stephen Miller,
Ezra Cohen-Watnick. It starts off this way:
The United States is confident that the
Syrian regime conducted a chemical weapons attack, using the nerve
agent sarin, against its own people in the town of Khan Sheikhun in
southern Idlib Province on April 4, 2017.
The mad president ends his anti-Assad
diatribe by repeating allegations that the Obama administration backed
away from in early 2014:
We must remember that the Assad regime
failed to adhere to its international obligations after its
devastating attacks on Damascus suburbs using the nerve agent sarin in
August 2013, which resulted in more than one thousand civilian
fatalities, many of whom were children.
But here's the thing . . . here's what
illuminates the extent of DTD's stupidity: While he runs the tired old
deceptive yada about pin-point pupils and foaming at the mouth being
"consistent with" sarin at least three times, not once does he
address the absence of the actual diagnostic effects of sarin. Not once
does he mention the absence of feces, urine, vomit. Not once does he
mention the absence of cyanosis. Nowhere does he explain why the victims
shown in the terrorists' videos are cherry-red. In other words, Donald T. Dildo is doing the same thing the terrorists in Idlib Province are
doing with their sarin-porn:
he's trying to spoof you. He's a liar -- a very dangerous liar.
If you recall, in the aftermath of the
Ghouta Massacre in 2013, the New York Times, Human Rights Watch
and a motley of other anti-Assad players such as Dan Kaszeta and Elliot
Higgins introduced "evidence" that sarin rockets had been
fired into Ghouta by the Syrian Arab Army. I mean, to read these
people you'd have thought the case against Assad could not get any
stronger. But I had ultimate faith in the biology, and the biology
then, as now, clearly showed us that there was no sarin attack, much less
sarin rockets. All of these self-described experts were wrong.
Eventually an MIT professor named Theodore A. Postol published a
study that confirmed what the biology was saying -- there were no freaking
SAA rockets filled with sarin. Did not happen.
And now Postol
is back with an engineer's assessment of the White House's
assessment of the KS incident, and it isn't pretty. Postol is not a
biologist and, like his report on the Ghouta incident, he does not attempt
to take issue with the assertions that sarin was used. Rather, he
restricts his analysis to Dildo's claims that bombs from Syrian jets
delivered the toxin. Postol concludes that there is no way this was a sarin attack by anybody's
aircraft. Here is his professional opinion, in his words [my
I have worked with the intelligence community in the past, and I have grave concerns about the
politicization of intelligence that seems to be occurring with more frequency in recent times – but I know
that the intelligence community has highly capable analysts in it. And if those analysts were properly
consulted about the claims in the White House document they would have not approved the document
This is a very serious matter.
President Obama was initially misinformed about supposed intelligence evidence that Syria was the
perpetrator of the August 21, 2013 nerve agent attack in Damascus. This is a matter of public record.
President Obama stated that his initially false understanding was that the intelligence clearly showed that
Syria was the source of the nerve agent attack. This false information was corrected when the then
Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, interrupted the President while he was in an intelligence
briefing. According to President Obama, Mr. Clapper told the President that the intelligence that Syria was
the perpetrator of the attack was “not a slam dunk."
We again have a situation where the White House has issued an obviously false, misleading and
amateurish intelligence report.
The Congress and the public have been given reports in the name of the intelligence community about
weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, technical evidence supposedly collected by satellite systems that any
competent scientists would know is false, and now from photographs of the craterthat any analyst who has
any competent at all would not trust as evidence.
And while we're making comparisons with the
false-flag Ghouta incident, there's CNN's Assad-vilification queen,
Barbara Starr, whose bizarro fluttering of facts I have complained
In a CNN
article dated today, Apr13|17, Starr claims to have information
from an anonymous "senior US official" that the US ". . .intercepted
communications featuring Syrian military and chemical experts
talking about preparations for the sarin attack in Idlib last week." And I'm like . . . oh, Jesus, here we go
Let's dissect Starr's nonsense -- and I call it
"nonsense" because I am so confident that the biology tells us
there was no sarin attack, and no sarin.
First of all, Starr's source is not even
described as an intelligence official, just a plain old "senior US
official," which probably means Jared Kushner or Sean Spicer.
Second of all, what the hell does the
phrase ". . . communications featuring . . ." mean? She doesn't say
". . . intercepted communications of . . .". She doesn't
claim the intercepts were actually the Syrian military and chemical guys talking
to each other. No, she says the intercepts featured military and
chemical experts talking. So what she is probably saying in a deceptive
sort of way is that the US "intercepted" a faux-communication between
itself and Israel in which there is speculation about Syrian military and
chemical experts. That would be a communication featuring Syrian
experts talking without being a communication of Syrian experts
Third, as McCain has famously said, we have
seen this movie before. Back in the run up to the 2013 attack on
Ghouta that didn't happen, part of the "evidence" being used to
justify such an attack was a claim that the Israelis intercepted communication between Syrian military people
planning a sarin
attack. It was just total mendacity, which is what anyone would expect
from the Israelis. But it almost got Damascus bombed by a B-52 and very
well could have started WW-III. Sound familiar?
The media, and
particularly CNN, and even more particularly Barbara Starr, spread this
bogus "intel" like horse-poop on a rose bed. If it continues, a
lot -- and I mean hundreds of thousands or millions -- of people are going
to get hurt. Then whose babies will first-bimbo Ivanka fret about?
As Postol says, this is a very serious
matter. Don't let the terrorists in Syria, the US government, and the MSM
spoof you. When it comes to alleged sarin attacks, you now have
everything you need to confirm or reject the allegations. Eventually
the terrorists will wise up and they will start faking most of the
biological symptoms of sarin. But until then, we can easily reject
their sarin false-flags and the White House's fraudulent claims of
chemical causus belli.
It's been a long-read. Thanks for sticking
with it and for giving this scary situation your careful

1. Daniel W. ~ Apr14
In your report you say sarin causes muscles to contract. Might be worth
explaining how this happens. My understanding (correct me if I'm wrong)
is the following:
Acetylcholine (ACh) is a neurotransmitter which activates moisture
glands (like saliva and tears), it also activates muscles (tenses muscle
tissue). Acetylcholinsterase (AChEl) is an enzyme which terminates the
signal transmission by hydrolysing ACh. Sarin is an AChEl inhibitor.
Therefore, in sarin victims, active moisture glands and muscles that are
tensed cannot relax or deactivate because there is no AChEl..
This means a sarin victim would not be able to breathe out (can't relax
the diaphragm back down). The heart would stop functioning without
My guesses: Vomiting and defecation - the body realises there's poison
in the system and attempts to get rid of the poison (uncontrollable due
to lack of AChEl).
Guess: Very low doses of sarin will not inhibit all AChEl and symptoms
would be low severity or unnoticeable. Very high doses would cause
breathing and heart to stop almost immediately before symptoms had time
to develop (based on this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQKK34vChgQ).
So either all victims were very low/very high dose or it was faked with
Showing pupils in contraction but no other symptoms seems impossible,
must be drugged victims.
Denis: Yep, that's a nice summary of the mechanism of
action of sarin and other organophosphates neruotoxins. As for the
gastrointestinal effects, as you note there is a system -- it's based on
the chemo-triggering zone (CTZ) in the lower brain -- that causes
vomiting when the brain detects a nasty substance in the
But the effects of sarin are more direct and more
powerful than merely stimulating the CTZ. Sarin stimulates the
parasympathetic nerve fibers that control the gut and organs, and, in
many cases, it also acts directly on the tissues, most of which have
these Ach receptors.
From what I understand -- I've never actually worked
with sarin -- its effects on the heart can go either way because the
nerves that speed the heart up and slow it down are both driven by Ach.
But, yes, when the oxygen runs out, the brain closes down first, then
the heart. No more SMS. No more tweets.
I agree: the pinpoint pupils w/out other symptoms sounds
like something funny. It would be simple to produce miosis with easily
available drugs -- physostigmine for instance, which is a reversible
You sound like a neuropharmacologist already. If you'd
like more info on these drugs and how they act, in Chapter 7 of my book Murder
in the SunMorgue I go into all the molecular details. It's a
free pdf download. A bit long, but it's the only pharmacological
analysis of the Ghouta Massacre I know of.
