Some people within the US and UK administrations are pushing for a war on Syria in line with their attempts to “sabotage” any possible cooperation between the US and Russia on fighting terrorism, says an analyst.

In an interview with Press TV, Mike Billington, an expert at the Executive Intelligence Review from Leesburg, referred to an April missile strike by the US on a Syrian airbase, which Washington claimed was used by the Damascus government to launch a chemical attack.

“Trump was fooled the first time. He was told that [Syrian President Bashar] Assad used chemical weapons. It was obvious to the entire world that was a lie,” he said.

“It is another case of Iraq scam – the accusations that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, which later of course turned out to be a total lie,” he added.
