British broadcaster Sky News cut short the former head of the British armed forces as he cast doubt over London’s narrative on the alleged chemical attack in Syria’s Douma.
Major-General Jonathan Shaw had his live interview abruptly cut mid sentence, because he started to question the UK government’s narrative that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was definitely to blame for the alleged gas attack

RT reports: News presenter Samantha Washington asked Shaw a narrowly-worded question, asking if Russian denials about the government’s responsibility would mean it’s necessary for any UK intervention in Syria to be approved by parliament.
But Shaw, who retired in 2012 to become a security expert, wanted to take the discussion back a step.
“Quite apart from all that, the debate that seems to be missing from this is… What possible motive could have triggered Syria to launch this chemical attack at this time in this place?” he asked.
“The Syrians are winning, don’t take my word for it, take the American military’s word for it,” Shaw said.
He then mentioned the words of Joseph Votel, the Commander of United States Central Command, who conceded last month that Bashar Assad “has won the war,” and US President Donald Trump, who recently announced the US’ intentions to pull its troops out of the conflict.
As Shaw continued his thought, saying: “… And then suddenly you get this,” he was interrupted by Washington, who interjected with “I am very sorry, you have been very patient for us, but we do need to leave it there,” before going to adverts.
Sky has not clarified whether it cut the interview, which only lasted for two minutes, due to editorial or time considerations. The Mirror reported sources within the Murdoch-owned company claiming that a”hard” ad break was scheduled.
Shaw, 59, whose 30-year career spanned from the Falklands to Kosovo to commanding the UK forces in Iraq in 2006, can by no means be described as a Kremlin stooge, and, even in a previous response within the same exchange, he accused Moscow of “muddying the waters.”
His dissention from the official UK line, which declares that Assad was “highly likely” to be responsible for the April 7 attack, was uploaded to social media and shared thousands of times in outrage.
Very clear that @SkyNews expected General Shaw to trot out the usual hawkish rhetoric of former armed forces commanders
Gen Shaw not unreasonably thought he was invited to share opinions & did so
Didn’t fit Tory / Sky News world view, so plug pulled
Sorted – except for Twitter!!

Right?? Is it because they would have hard time dismissing him as an “Hysterical Corbynite who has no idea what he is talking about”? Probably. Between him, the former Ambassador and Merkel refusing to intervene, it’s becoming more difficult by the day to justify intervention!
