What happened in Syria?

Here are lots of facts that chemical weapons were used in Syria. But who used them?

U.S. Government says:


“The United States Government assesses with high confidence that the Syrian government carried out a chemical weapons attack in the Damascus suburbs on August 21, 2013. We further assessthat the regime used a nerve agent in the attack. These all-source assessments are based on human, signals, and geospatial intelligence as well as a significant body of open source reporting. Our classified assessments have been shared with the U.S. Congress and key international partners. To protect sources and methods, we cannot publicly release all available intelligence – but what follows is an unclassified summary of the U.S. Intelligence Community’s analysis of what took place.

A preliminary U.S. government assessment determined that 1,429 people were killed in the chemical weapons attack, including at least 426 children, though this assessment will certainly evolve as we obtain more information.“


Well, another point of view – Russian Pravda.ru writes:


“If the United States strike Syria without a sanction from the UN, the world community must demand the Nobel committee should deprive Barack Obama of the Peace Prize, – the head of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Alexei Pushkov said. “

And then, Russian Pravda.ru also writes:

“If the investigators’ mandate is only to confirm what is already “is undeniable,” in John Kerry’s words, why were the UN investigators stripped of the mandate of determining “who” used the chemical weapons in Syria, if not to leave it up to the U.S. & partners to decide in advance as a prejudged conclusion that “There’s no doubt who is responsible: The Syrian regime,” according to Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday, to be consistent with their plans for a regime change in Damascus, and let the truth go to hell.”


And even more “interesting observations“ from Islamic Republic of Iran News Agency:


“In an exclusive interview with IRNA, editor of the online military-diplomatic magazine “Purple Beret”, Atul Bhardwaj said: “For how long will the Israeli-American lies continue to maim people? They lied to occupy Iraq. They broadcast half-truths to invade Afghanistan. We are, now, witness to their cunning and conspiracy in creating the so-called colored revolutions.”
Exposing the joint conspiracy of the Western countries to invade Syria, he said: Somewhere, the world needs to tell the people that all the Western broadcast on Chemical attacks by Syrian government is another American ploy to indulge in greater acts of barbarism and crimes against humanity. In case of Syria, they have become more brazen.
They have been openly arming the rebels, creating terrorists in Syria. And now even before anything could be proved about the Chemical attacks in Damascus, The US and Britain have already passed a verdict against the Syrian army, he added.“


Strange? Not really. The world is still divided. What is the most important? Human life? Democracy? Each state´s power?

Who is bad? Who is good?

Yes, I care, yes: We can see the world like We want because We can read every possible information… but the mass media war is there without no doubt. And the cruel true: another people were killed in Syria…

There is a lot of love between young US´s, Russia´s, Syria´s and Iran´s girls and boys…

And people still write poetry in these countries!


About Milan Kališ

I was born in 1979 (August 22) in Ilava, Slovakia. I spent first decade of my childhood primarily in Dubnica nad Váhom and Nová Dubnica, Slovakia. I attended the school from 1986 and 1994 in Dubnica. My brother was born in 1987. In 1989, I become a member of the young pioneer organization of the Czechoslovakia (every child had to be a member and it was the last year when communist state gave the diploma before the Velvet Revolution). I tried to write my first novel in summer of 1992 (influenced by historical novel Čachtická pani, The Cachtic´s lady by Jožo Nižnánsky). Only my teacher read it and she noticed my talent with the written word and encouraged me to pursue my literary ambitions. Then I studied at Gymnasium Ľudovíta Štúra in Trenčín from 1994 to 1998 (the Gymnasium in the Slovak education system is a type of secondary school with a strong emphasis on academic learning, comparable with the British grammar school system or with prep schools in the United States). When I was 15 I saw my first piece of writing appear in print – a poetry published in the school newspaper. At the age of 16 I become an editor in the school newspaper. I studied English language two months in Toronto in the summer of 1996 (finished with certificate Intermediate Level II.) In 1996 and 1998, I received twice the Mayor of the City Trenčín´s prize for poetry in Joseph Branecký´s literary contest. Following 1996´s success, publisher Ludoprint published my first book of poetry Črepy 20. storočia (Shards of 20th century, 224 pages, ISBN 8096772104) in 1997. Around 100 pages poem Cesta pokračuje (The Journey continues) from this book received the prize in European Union´s contest ,,Europa at the school” in 1997. The short story Apuesta won the prize in the best Slovak junior literary contest Literárny Kežmarok in 1998. I graduated from Comenius University with a Master of Science in environmental science in Bratislava in 2005. I worked briefly for homeless center in winter 2006 in Bratislava. From 2005 to 2011, I was a PhD student at the Comenius University in Bratislava, Faculty of Natural Science, the postgraduate study program in environmental geochemistry. Theme of my dissertation was “Study of Thallium forms and distribution of Thallium in environmental samples by Electrothermal Atomic Absorption Spectrometry”. I successfully defended my dissertation, first by giving a talk, then by answering questions posed to me by my committee in March 2011. I´m working as hydrologist in Slovak Hydrometeorological Institute in Bratislava now. I published my on-line poems, stories and novels on the website www.milankalis.sk in Slovak language from 2009.
