WATCH Ex-Pink Floyd Member Slams Syria's White Helmets as 'Terrorist Propaganda'

Whilst the western media has been taken in by the White Helmets propaganda in Syria, thinking that they are just a humanitarian charity search and rescue group, many observers like the Ex Pink Floyd singer Roger Waters and other observers have dug a little deeper.

Rogers made the comment Friday at a concert in Barcelona, when he said someone had wanted to speak to the audience on behalf of the group about the alleged chemical attack by the Syrian regime earlier this month.

"If we would listen to the propaganda of the White Helmets and others, we would be encouraged to encourage our governments to go and start dropping bombs on people in Syria", he added, saying to do so would be a "mistake of monumental proportions".

"The White Helmets is a fake organization that exists only to create propaganda for jihadists and terrorists".

A website, The New Arab, noted that "Russia, one of the main backers of the Syrian regime, has claimed the attack was faked by the White Helmets - on orders from the British government".

Waters' remarks echoed those of Syria and its backer Russian Federation, who have asserted the deadly chemical attack in Douma was staged. "Because we live in the world where propaganda seems to be more important than the reality of what is really going on".

Waters explained why he didn't support the cause furthered by the White Helmets.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May's decision to take part in the attack without holding a debate in parliament and seeking its approval - a convention established after the 2003 US-led invasion of Iraq - is another reason why her government has been heavily criticized for its role in the strikes.

Chemical weapons attacks have killed thousands of people since the start of Syria's conflict, with the United Nations blaming four attacks on the Syrian regime and a fifth on the Islamic State group.
