Kerry Caught Using Fake Photos to
Fuel Syrian War
“Many friends stand ready to respond”

Secretary of State John Kerry opened his speech Friday by
describing the horrors victims of the chemical weapon attack
suffered, including twitching, spasms and difficulty breathing.
Attempting to drive the point home, Kerry referenced
a photograph used by the BBC illustrating a child
jumping over hundreds of dead bodies covered in
white shrouds. The photo was meant to depict victims
who allegedly succumbed to the effects of chemical
weapons via Assad’s regime.
However, it was later exposed the photograph used
had been taken in 2003 in Iraq. It was not related to
Syrian deaths whatsoever and was later retracted.
The Secretary of State announced the US will
continue “negotiations” with Congress and the
American people.
The decision came after UK Parliament voted no to military action
against Syria Thursday evening, refusing to accompany the US in
a missile strike against the Middle Eastern nation.
Germany also voiced their opposition to Syria military
intervention saying they have “not considered it” and “will not be
considering it.”
