he story of Hassan Diab has gone viral on the internet, but apparently hasn’t come to the attention of U.S. President Donald Trump, U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May or French President Emmanuel Macron. Of course, the leaders of America, Britain and France are fully aware of Hassan Diab, but for some unknown reason are choosing to remain silent – thus far unwilling to offer any commentary and/or statements whatsoever. One has to seriously wonder as to why – and become very concerned, in light of historic U.S./Russia tensions many experts assess as greater than during the Cuban Missile Crisis.
The 11-year old boy from Syria was “center stage” in a video used as a foundation for claims of a chemical attack in the Damascus suburb of Douma on April 7, with the blame near immediately, without investigation, pinned on the Syrian government of Bashar Assad, and led to the subsequent (illegal under international law) joint bombing attack of Syria by U.S., U.K. and French military forces in the early morning hours of Saturday April 14.
How long will the world wait to hear Donald Trump, Theresa May and Emmanuel Macron speak the name: “Hassan Diab …”? While U.S. President Donald Trump remains “locked and loaded” – an ominous, imminent-violence term warning of additional (illegal) military actions in the event another chemical incident in Syria occurs – it becomes clear to sane, rational men and women, beyond any and all doubts: humanity cannot wait.
