Trump’s Rush to Judgment on Syria Chemical Attack

On Sunday, President Trump announced his intention to make those responsible for an alleged chemical weapons attack on Douma, including the Syrian government and its Russian and Iranian allies, pay a “big price” for their continued disregard for international law. The next day U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley declared that “The United States is determined to see the monster who dropped chemical weapons on the Syrian people held to account.”

President Trump reinforced his call for action on Monday, noting that the United States would not sit back in the face of the alleged use of chemical weapons by Syria. “It will be met, and it will be met forcefully,” the president said, adding that those responsible for the attack will be held accountable, whether it was Syria, Russia, Iran or “all of them together.” Trump noted that a decision to use military force would be made “over the next 24 to 48 hours.”

Armed groups surrounding the predominantly Kurdish Sheikh Maqsoud district of Aleppo city have repeatedly carried out indiscriminate attacks - possibly including with chemical weapons - that have struck civilian homes, markets and mosques, killing and injuring civilians, and have displayed a shameful disregard for human life, said Amnesty International today.

Two of the armed groups conducting attacks on Sheikh Maqsoud - Ahrar al Sham and Army of Islam - have sent representatives to the UN-brokered negotiations on Syria in Geneva, while the others have approved delegates to represent them at the talks.

U.S. Coalition jets hover over Iraqi-Syrian borders, no reasons clarified: Source

The U.S.-led Coalition has been heavily hovering over the border region between Iraq and Syria, a security source from the mobilization forces in Anbar province said on Wednesday.

“The coalition jets have been heavily hovering over the al-Tanf region on borders between Iraq and Syria, without clarifying reasons for that,” the source told Almaalomah website.

“Security leaders deployed in the western side of the province have no information about the operations made by the Coalition jets,” he added. “Security forces are getting ready for an operation that targets the dormant cells of Islamic State in the western desert of Anbar reaching to the Iraqi-Syrian borders.”

Earlier today, U.S. President Donald Trump warned Russia of imminent military action in Syria, lambasting Russia for supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Syrian Army Captures British Militants in Eastern Ghouta – Reports

A number of British forces have been captured by the Syrian army during military operations in Eastern Ghouta, according to reports by local media.

According to a report by Al-Mayadeen news channel cited by Fars News, a number of British troops have been captured during the Syrian Arab Army's operations in Eastern Ghouta.

They are believed to be a part of international military forces deployed in the region to launch a ground assault in Damascus in cooperation with the US. According to the report, the US and other NATO countries, Jordan and Israel planned to launch attacks from several fronts, but the plot failed as Syrian armed forces made a series of rapid advances in Eastern Ghouta in March. The plot allegedly involved massive airstrikes by US and Israeli planes that were supposed to pave the way for ground forces.

Eastern Ghouta: Terrorists Hand over Modern Arms Made in Israeli, Europe to Syrian Army

Jeish al-Islam militants delivered their advanced Israel and European-made weapons to the Syrian Army within the framework of an evacuation agreement in the town of Douma, a media outlet reported on Wednesday.
The Arabic-language website of Sputnik reported that a sum of 1,384 militants and their family members with a total number of 3,792 left Douma for the town of Jarabulus in Northeastern Aleppo on 85 buses.

It went on to say that the evacuation process will continue for the next two days due to logistical reasons, adding that Jeish al-Islam has handed over its light and semi-heavy arms to the army.

The Arabic Sputnik further said that Israeli sniper rifles and Belgian-made RPG rockets and PKC machineguns were among the arms.

People in the town of Douma on Tuesday took control of a number of warehouses used by Jeish al-Islam for hoarding food stuff after the terrorist group started retreating from the town under an evacuation plan agreed with the Syrian Army.

Russian envoy slams WHO for recklessly releasing dubious information on Douma incident

Members of the World Health Organization (WHO) exhibited a lack of responsibility when they released allegations that almost 500 people asked for medical help in the Syrian city of Douma on April 7 with symptoms of poisoning. These actions by the WHO employees only serve to egg on those powers that are stoking the conflict in Syria, said Gennady Gatilov, Russia’s Permanent Representative to the UN Office and Other International Organizations in Geneva, in a conversation with TASS.

Gatilov regarded the WHO’s statement as a serious one, highlighting that "it was made right when Syria had experienced a new uptick in tensions."

"We all have been hearing about the possibility of American strikes and the emergence of such a statement plays into the hands of those who strive for a scenario involving the use of force in Syria," the diplomat noted. "We consider it unacceptable."

FLASHBACK - UN accuses Syrian rebels of carrying out sarin gas attacks which had been blamed on Assad's troops

A senior United Nations official has claimed that Syrian rebels may have used chemical weapons against government forces.

Carla Del Ponte said evidence from casualties and medical staff indicated that rebel forces in the civil war had used the deadly nerve agent sarin.

‘Our investigators have been in neighbouring countries interviewing victims, doctors and field hospitals, and there are strong, concrete suspicions, but not yet incontrovertible proof, of the use of sarin gas,’ said Del Ponte in an interview with Swiss-Italian television.

‘This was use on the part of the opposition, the rebels, not by the government authorities.’

Last night, the UN commission looking into allegations of war crimes in Syria tried to row back on the comments by its human rights investigator, pointing out that conclusive evidence had not been discovered.

Macron says has 'proof' of Syrian chemical attack, vows response

France has proof the Syrian government carried out a chemical weapons attack last week and will decide whether to strike back when all the necessary information has been gathered, President Emmanuel Macron said Thursday.

France is expected to join the United States and Britain in carrying out air strikes or some other form of attack in response to the use of the weapons but it remains unclear when that might happen or even if it definitely will.

"We have proof that last week, now 10 days ago, that chemical weapons were used, at least with chlorine, and that they were used by the regime of [President] Bashar al-Assad," Macron said, without giving details on the evidence or how it was acquired.

And so, how will Russia behave if a US strike on Syria turns out to be not only symbolic, but kills Russia’s allies and, even worse, Russian soldiers? I can say confidently that Russia will respond to any strike. It is no secret that the Russian establishment is infected with influential pro-American lobbies and numerous agents of influence. But if decision-making depended on this group of traitors, then Russia would have never come to aid Syria. Nor would it have returned Crimea and Sevastopol home. In this situation, the final decision will be taken by President Putin, who on March 1st warned the US that Russia has ultra-modern weapons at its disposal and jamming systems which, in the best case, would not leave America with any warm feelings.

Trump's Deranged Tweet: Madness in an Age of Unreason

The dogs of war are barking; they are straining at the leash in a period of unreason in which wisdom has been supplanted by madness.

Thus the time for equivocation is over and the time for unvarnished truth has come. And the unvarnished truth where the current incumbent in the Oval Office, Donald J Trump, is concerned is that the world is dealing with an unhinged maniac more suited to sitting at the head of a New York mafia crime family than leading a nuclear-armed state.

His recent tweet, threatening Russia with a missile attack over the crisis in Syria, is inarguably the most disturbing and frightening public communication issued by an American president at any time in that country's history. Indeed it is so deranged it calls to mind Hitler's infamous speech in Berlin in 1940, during which the fascist dictator threatened Britain with invasion: "And when people in England today nosily inquire: ‘Well, why isn't he coming?' Calm yourselves: he is coming!"

War of Nerves: Why Trump is Unlikely to Launch a New Strike on Syria

US President Donald Trump is unlikely to deliver on his Twitter promise to launch a missile attack against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), Lebanese military analysts told Sputnik, explaining that the potential move could prompt dramatic shifts in the Syrian war theater.

Donald Trump's threats to launch a strike on Syria is an attempt to shift the attention of the US public to the possibility of an overseas operation, Lebanese military analyst and Retired General Hisham Jaber told Sputnik Arabic.

According to Jaber, the US won't launch the attack the US president is tweeting about: "Russia remains a deterrent against this dangerous step. Russia has already stated that it will respond to a possible blow. The Shayrat airfield incident will not happen again," the military analyst stressed, referring to the April 7 2017 missile strike conducted by the US on the Syrian Arab Army's (SAA) airbase over the alleged chemical attack in Khan Sheikhoun, Idlib province.

France Likely to Strike Syria From Mainland – Reports

In the event France decides to strike Syria in response to the alleged use of chemical weapons by Syrian government forces in the city of Douma, it is more likely to launch the attack from an airbase located on its mainland rather than from its bases in the Middle East, Le Figaro reported on Wednesday.

According to Le Figaro newspaper, the French military command has already presented possible plans of action in Syria to Macron. The newspaper also noted, referring to air force specialists, that in the event military action is approved, the most likely scenario would be for France to strike Syria from its Saint-Dizier base, located in the country's northeast, not from its bases in Jordan and the United Arab Emirates, for example, since these countries do not want to be involved in military operations against their neighbor Syria.

Syria’s official news agency SANA reported on Tuesday that the clandestine workshop was uncovered near recently-liberated al-Shefounieh town in the volatile enclave as government soldiers were combing the area for possible improvised explosive devices planted by the so-called Jaish al-Islam Takfiri terrorist group prior to its defeat in the town and its suburbs.

FLASHBACK MARCH - Syrian Military Uncovers Terrorist “Chemical Weapons Workshop” In East Ghouta

According to reports from Sputnik International, the Syrian Army has claimed that it has uncovered a chemical weapons “workshop” in East Ghouta after having liberated the territory where the workshop was located.

After sweeping through the village of Aftris in Eastern Ghouta following the withdrawal of terrorists from the area, Syrian Army Colonel Feruz Ibrahim told reporters that, “Presumably, the equipment of these munitions could be produced as part of a false flag accusation that government troops used chemical weapons.”

In other works, Ibrahim is echoing what many independent researchers have known for some time, i.e. that Western-backed terrorists have the ability and the desire to conduct false flag attacks to be blamed on the Syrian government for the purpose of justifying military action or airstrikes against the Syrian military by the United States and NATO.

The chemical weapons attack on civilians in the Syrian town of Douma was staged and filmed by members of the White Helmets organization, First Deputy Chief of the Russian General Staff’s Main Operations Department Lieutenant General Viktor Poznikhir told reporters on Wednesday. "On April 7, probably the last attempt to stage a chemical weapons attack in Eastern Ghouta was made.

Terrorists have failed to fake any chemical weapon attacks against civilians in Eastern Ghouta, he added. "During the humanitarian operation, the illegal armed units fighting in Eastern Ghouta have incessantly attempted to organize provocations involving the alleged use of toxic chemicals so as to put the blame for the use of chemical weapons on the Syrian government forces," he said.

Israel Vows To "Wipe Assad Off The Map" If Iran Launches An Attack From Syrian Territory

After they launched a lethal strike (from Lebanese airspace, no less) against the T-4 airforce base in Syria in retaliation for the a chemical weapons attack on a rebel-held Syrian village - killing several Iranians in the process - senior Israeli officials have finally confirmed what many have long assumed since the country started escalating its military operations within the borders of its crumbling Levantine neighbor.

That is, if Israel even so much as suspects that Iranian agents are planning an attack against Israel from Syrian territory, it will be Syrian President Bashar al-Assad who ends up on the receiving end of a preemptive strike from the IDF, per the Jerusalem Post.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is that line attributed to the now-mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, never let a good crisis go to waste?!?

But I am very curious as to whether Russia's Vlad Putin has received this message, and just what they indend to do, should Israel haul off on Damascus?!?

Syrian Pro-Government Forces Evacuate Airports, Military Bases Ahead Of Airstrikes

In light of this morning's jawboning by Trump, who vowed that an attack with US missiles "nice and new and “smart!" is imminent, and following overnight unconfirmed reports that US warplanes are massing over the Syria-Iraq border, it will hardly come as a surprise that Syrian soldiers and pro-government forces are getting the hell out of dodge.

According to Reuters, which cites the (highly conflicted) Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Syrian pro-government forces are evacuating main airports and military air bases ahead of possible U.S. strikes.

While the report has yet to be confirmed, amusingly Reuters clarified that "the Syrian army could not be immediately reached for comment." It's also not immediately clear what they would say: "yes, we are retreating, have a good day."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump has telegraphed his intentions, very loudly, to the world, and there will be utterly zero surprise in these attacks.

Former UK Ambassador to Syria: Syrian Chemical Weapons Attack Was STAGED By Islamic Jihadi Propagandists, No One Actually Died

The former UK Ambassador to Syria, Peter Ford, told BBC Radio Scotland regarding the alleged Douma chemical weapons attack:

The Syrian government is probably not guilty

The sources claiming there was a chemical weapons attack are pro-Islamist jihadi propaganda outlets

The incident was probably staged, and it is likely that no one actually died

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF there is a guy who can most probably ferret out the truth about this incident, it would be Peter Ford.

Theresa May Ready To Join Syria Strike Without Seeking Parliamentary Approval

While a U.S. Carrier Strike Group makes its way to the Mediterranean, and amid reports of US and French fighter jets buzzing around the skies over Syria, the BBC reports that UK Prime Minister Theresa May is "ready to join military action against the Assad regime in Syria without first seeking Parliamentary consent."

The prime minister is said by government insiders to see the need for a response as urgent.

She wants to prevent a repeat of the apparent chemical attack near Damascus, which she described as "abhorrent". -BBC

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation; Prime Minister May, after the Brexit and Skribal disasters, is desperate to "do something" to win back popular British support; I guess she thinks that engaging in World War III will be just the ticket!!

11 Russian Warships Leave Syrian Port To Conduct Exercises

Update: The Russian warships leaving port has been reported as a drill, as InterFax reports:

Russian Navy ships, starting from April 11, will conduct exercises near the coast of Syria, follow from the international notification for aviation personnel (NOTAM) and navigational warning for seafarers.

Russia Rejects Media Reports That Bashar Assad Left Syria

Russian MP Dmitry Sablin, who is coordinator of the State Duma group for ties with Syria’s parliament, rejected media reports that Syrian President Bashar Assad and his family have allegedly left the republic. The Russian parliamentary delegation arrived in Syria on Wednesday and plans to hold meetings with the country’s leadership, businessmen and also carry out a number of humanitarian efforts. "Syrian President Bashar Assad is in Damascus, we plan to meet with him, discuss the situation and back the people of Syria in their war on terror," Sablin, who is visiting Syria, told reporters. The lawmaker recalled that he "has met with Assad several times, including in 2014, when the situation in Syria was much worse". "Then, Assad said he would never leave Syria and would share his people’s fate. His family is also now in Damascus with their people," the politician added.

Trump’s Bombing of Syria Would Make Him a War Criminal

Trump’s bombing of Syria would be an impeachable offense.

Indeed, it would be the ultimate war crime …

The Nuremberg Tribunal which convicted and sentenced Nazis leaders to death conceived of wars of aggression – i.e. wars not launched in self-defense – defined the following as “crimes against peace”, or war crimes:

(i) Planning, preparation, initiation or waging of a war of aggression or a war in violation of international treaties, agreements or assurances;
(ii) Participation in a common plan or conspiracy for the accomplishment of any of the acts mentioned under (i)
The Tribunal considered wars of aggression to be the ultimate war crime, which encompassed all other crimes:

To initiate a war of aggression, therefore, is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole.

FSA Calls for US Forces' Back-up to Storm Syrian Army Positions in Deir Ezzur

The Washington-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) has called on the US army to provide support for its gunmen to enter Deir Ezzur battlefields to fight against the Syrian Army men and ISIL, militant-affiliated websites reported on Wednesday. The websites reported that the terrorists of Maqavir al-Thowrah, affiliated to the Free Syrian Army, have demanded the US army to support them to take part in battle against the Syrian pro-government forces in the Eastern province of Deir Ezzur. The US and its western allies have threatened to launch military operation against Damascus following a false-flag chemical attack in Douma by terrorist groups to accuse the Syrian government of killing its civilians. Local sources reported on Tuesday that the ISIL terrorists launched a heavy offensive against the Syrian Army troops' positions in Southwestern Deir Ezzur on Monday following a missile attack on the T4 airbase in Northern Homs.

Iran, Russia Mulling Response to Israeli Strikes against Syria's T4 Airbase

Senior Iranian and Russian officials in a secret meeting in Tehran conferred on ways to give a response to the Sunday night Israeli missile strikes against the T4 airbase in Syria which killed a number of military advisors of Iran, an Arabic-language media outlet reported. The Arabic-language al-Mayadeen news channel reported on Wednesday that the meeting was held between Secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani and Russian President Vladimir Putin's Special Envoy to Syria Alexander Lavrentiev. During the unscheduled meeting, both sides reviewed the recent attack by Israel on Syria and the US President Donald Trump’s threat of military intervention in Syria. According to al-Mayadeen, due to its confidentiality, the meeting was not covered by the media. No official source has yet commented on the report.

Syrian Army Captures British Military Men in Eastern Ghouta

A number of British military men were held captive by the Syrian army in Eastern Ghouta of Damascus, media reports disclosed on Wednesday, saying that they had infiltrated the region for the last month US plot to attack Damascus in collaboration with terrorists and NATO forces that failed. The Arabic-language al-Mayadeen news channel's correspondent in Moscow reported that a number of British forces have been captured during the military operations in Eastern Ghouta. Earlier reports had disclosed last month that foreign military forces were deployed in Eastern Ghouta of Damascus to launch a ground assault against Damascus in cooperation with the US. The US and Israel planned to launch attacks on Damascus from several fronts in collaboration with the NATO and Jordan, but the plot failed after the Syrian army scored rapid, major victories in Eastern Ghouta.

On the Brink of a Full Blown War? Reports of Nuclear Submarines on the Way to Syria

Star and Stripes reports an additional Navy battlegroup are departing the US this morning (11th April) to join the other US destroyers:

“The aircraft carrier will be accompanied by the guided-missile cruiser USS Normandy and the guided-missile destroyers USS Arleigh Burke, USS Bulkeley, USS Forrest Sherman and USS Farragut. The destroyers USS Jason Dunham and USS The Sullivans will join the strike group later, a Navy statement said. The strike group, carrying 6,500 sailors and Carrier Air Wing One, will cruise alongside the German frigate FGS Hessen. It remains unclear what the upcoming strike group deployment might entail.”

The Russian naval facility in Tartus is a leased military installation of the Russian Navy located on the northern edge of the seaport of the Syrian city of Tartus. According to CNN Turk, US destroyers were at a distance of 100 km from the port of Tartus, as of Monday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a betting woman, I would almost be willing to bet that US/UK military action against Syria will begin close to this weekend, when citizens of both countries are distracted with sports and other activities.

If the attack is delayed, until all the US assets are in place, we well be looking at a decap strike against Damascus itself.

At almost 69 years old, I have never, this lifetime, felt myself so completely distressed at being so thoroughly ignored by a government which, allegedly, is supposed to represent my interests and needs, and those of my brother and sister Americans; not those of Israel, and not those of the country's military/industrial complex.

The costs of such a war will have horrific repercussions internationally and ecomomically, and make the United States even more of a target for those international leaders who would like to see this country balkanize and collapse.

It appears to me that there are only two things left to do right now, because Oahu is definitely a first-strike target for either Russia or China, to take out, because of all the military communications flowing east from this rock; pray, and prepare, the best we can.

Update-Al-Moallem and Velayati: Increasing coordination between Iran and Syria to face terrorism

The two sides stressed the need for increasing coordination and consultations between Iran and Syria to face terrorism and its supporters and to confront the hostile provocations and threats by Israel, the US, and their allies and pawns in the region. Minister al-Moallem reviewed the latest developments in political fields and on the ground in Syria in light of the important military victories achieved by the Syrian Arab Army and its allies, praising the support provided by Iran to Syria in all fields. For his part, Velayati affirmed that Iran will continue to support Syria in its battle against terrorism which targets its unity and the region’s stability, stressing that his country will continue to boost its strategic relations with Syria. He also offered congratulations on the achievements realized by the Syrian Arab Army in Eastern Ghouta...

US helicopters evacuate foreign leaders of Daesh from Tal al-Shayer, Hasaka

US helicopters evacuated foreign leaders of Daesh (ISIS) terrorist organization from Tal al-Shayer area, about 20 km to the southeastern of al-Shadadi city in Hasaka province, according to local sources. The sources said that the evacuation took place at 11pm on Monday at a gas station in the area of Tal al-Shayer in which the perpetrators of the evacuation staged a fake battle with live fire before the helicopters took off, taking three Iraqi Daesh leaders with their families to an unknown destination. Due to the use of live fire in this incident, a civilian was martyred and others were injured. During the past few months, Washington transported many foreign Daesh leaders from the eastern region in Syria in order to re-employ them to implement new aggressive plans both in Syria and abroad.

As Trump considers military action on Syria, Pentagon worries it could put Russian soldiers in the crosshairs

As Pentagon planners ready a possible military response to a suspected poison gas attack in Syria, one danger has sparked special concern — whether U.S. airstrikes may inadvertently kill Russian soldiers in Syria and escalate the regional war into a confrontation between Washington and Moscow.

The chances of a potential clash would increase if President Trump opts for a heavy bombardment, employing not only Tomahawk cruise missiles fired from Navy ships offshore — as he did last year after a previous chemical attack — but also manned bombers and other warplanes to strike multiple targets in Syria, current and former officials say.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Those international chemical inspectors better get on the ground in Syria, and double time quickly, as in, yesterday!!!! We need a time machine here, or at least Dr. Who's tardis.

And if Pentagon officials are worried that the US may inadvertently kill or maim members of the Russian military, they need to talk President Trump out of this madness, and right the hell now, because there will almost be no way to avoid this, as embedded as the Russians are with their Syrian military counterparts.

Of course, we have Israel's military leadership cheerleading for a US war against SyriaIsraeli commanders push for an offensive against Syria. but President Trump needs to understand, fully, and consequentially, that these Israeli military officials fully expect that the costs of such a war will only be borne in American blood, and with American money.

We also have Saudi Arabia's B.O.Y. (the Butcher of Yemen),Crown Prince bin Salman, suggesting that Saudi Arabia could conceivably join the fray Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman mentions that Saudis could take part on a US-led attack on Syria. Considering just how non-brilliantly their military campaign is going in Yemen, even with US military assistance, which can only be characterized as a wanton genocide against the Yemeni people, President Trump should refuse their help; the US should NOT be colluding with the Saudis in any more war crimes, this time against the Syrian people, thank you very much!!

That Congress is, colletively, sitting idly by, and allowing such insantity to move forward, when only Congress has the power to declare war, derrived from the American Constitution, suggests that they are all completely worse than useless, and should be completely sacked sacked at the next round of elections to which they are subject.

US warplanes flying close to Russian airbase in Syria

A U.S. warplane is reportedly flying close to the Russian airbases in the Latakia and Tartous provinces of Syria, a military air monitor (Twitter: @Aircraftspots) reported this afternoon.

According to the Twitter account of Aircraft Spots, a US Navy P-8A 168439 PS102 departed from Sigonella in the eastern Mediterranean towards the Syrian coastal provinces of Latakia and Tartous.

The aircraft monitor was able to track the route of the aircraft, showing that it was circling the Mediterranean between Syria and Cyprus.

Russia Outs Israel, Says Two Israeli Fighter Jets Struck Iranian Base in Syria

The Russian military said on Monday that two Israeli F-15 war planes carried out airstrikes on a Syrian air base near Homs on Sunday, the Interfax news agency reported. 14 people were reportedly killed in the strike, at least four of them Iranians.

Interfax cited the Russian Defense Ministry as saying the Israeli war planes had carried out the strikes from Lebanese air space. The Russian ministry said that Syrian air defense systems had shot down five of eight missiles fired, while the other three landed in the western part of the base. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Monday that the strike was "a dangerous development."

'We categorically want to avoid confrontation with Russia' – NATO deputy chief

Deputy Secretary General of NATO Rose Gottemoeller says that the Alliance does not wish to face military conflict with Russia, but still blames it for a "troubling pattern of behavior," from Ukraine to Salisbury.

"We would categorically want to avoid a situation where confrontation with Russia is inevitable. And that's exactly what our decision-making is governed by," Gottemoeller told Russian daily Kommersant in an interview published in Russian on Tuesday. However, her message was far from reconciliatory as she went on: "But we can't leave without reply Russia's illegal acts: from the annexation of Crimea, to destabilization in Donbass, to election meddling, or the latest events in the UK."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Nato Deputy Secretary Gottemoeller, you are lying about the Skribal poisoning; alleged election tampering in the US; destabilization in Donbass; and the alleged annexation of Crimea.

And what is worse, the world knows you are lying with a straight face.

But I can promise you one thing; should President Trump move forward with this insane rush to war in Syria, there will most likely no way for NATO to escape a military confrontation with Russia, and you know it.

So what will NATO and the EU do in that case, institute a European draft?!?

Oh, I would so like to see you try that!! :-)

Syrian rebel militants to launch counter-offensive if US strikes Assad troops – commander

Syrian militants will launch an offensive to capture government-held areas, if the US goes ahead with a strike and weakens the Syrian Army’s positions, a rebel commander has said.

In a hardly surprising admission, an oft-cited Free Syrian Army (FSA) commander said the possible strike against Syria mulled by US President Donald Trump would play into the hands of militants seeking to topple Syrian leader Bashar Assad.

There Was No Chemical Attack in Syria

Virginia State Senator Richard Black discusses the latest "chemical attack" in Syria as a false flag attempt at pressuring Trump into a reckless confrontation with Russia in Syria.

Apr 11 09:50


The US Navy is creating a strike group with hundreds of Tomahawk cruise missiles for a possible attack on Syria.

The USS Donald Cook has already drawn attention to its actions in the eastern Mediterranean where it has reportedly been “harassed” by Russian warplanes.

The USS Carney is also deployed somewhere in Mediterranean, while the USS Porteris somewhere en route to or has already entered it. Another guided-missile destroyer, the USS Laboon is also somewhere near the Mediterranean. These four guided-missile destroyers together can carry up to 240 Tomahawk cruise missiles.

Considering that the USS Georgia and USS John Warner nuclear submarines are also deployed in the region, the US Navy could have about 406 Tomahawks to use for its attack on the Assad government.

US Still Assessing Intel on Alleged Douma Chemical Attack - Mattis

Amid US President Donald Trump's twitterstorm on the situation in Syria, US Defense Secretary James Mattis keeps his tone calm, speaking about the alleged chemical attack in Douma.

When asked about the evidence supporting accusations against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces for the alleged chemical attack, "Mad Dog" Mattis responded in a measured tone:

"We're still assessing the intelligence - ourselves and our allies. We're still working on this," Mattis stated.
However, he reiterated Trump's attitude to the issue, saying the Pentagon was ready "to provide military options if they are appropriate as the president determines," NBC News reported.

‘Another False Flag’: Fmr Congressman Ron Paul on Syrian Gas Attack

As the Free Thought Project reported this week, late Saturday night, the mainstream media began spreading the news of an alleged chemical weapons attack in Douma, Syria. Immediately after the unconfirmed reports, President Donald Trump began threatening Russia, Iran and “Animal Assad,” and blamed them for the attack. However, after examining the situation objectively, many people are now calling this alleged attack a false flag, including former congressman Ron Paul.

Indeed, less than a month ago, the Russian military predicted this exact scenario. As CNBC reported last month, the threat, by Chief of Russia’s General Staff Valery Gerasimov, was widely reported by Russia media sites such as state news agency RIA and Tass. It said Gerasimov said Russia had “reliable information” about militants preparing to falsify a government chemical attack against civilians.

Attacking Syria Is Impeachable

Francis Boyle is professor of international law at the University of Illinois College of Law. He said today: “Any U.S. attack targeting the Syrian government or its forces would clearly violate both U.S. and international law. When Obama was in a similar position in 2013, his advisor Ben Rhodes [see below] has since commented that they turned back largely because they were afraid of impeachment. That fear is well founded. While the prospect of impeaching Trump is thrown around frequently for partisan purposes, on this issue, the constitution is clear: Initiating a war or any such attack without authorization is clearly impeachable.

Prepared for a conflict with Russia, Israel is pushing Trump to take action in Syria

Israel is escalating the diplomatic conflict with Russia and publicly standing by the United States concerning the chemical weapons used by Syrian President Bashar Assad against his own citizens.

Follow Ynetnews on Facebook and Twitter

Jerusalem’s aggressive approach is reflected in a statement released by the Foreign Ministry shortly before 11 pm Monday, in which Israel ruled unequivocally that Assad and his regime had used chemical weapons against civilians on Sunday.

The delayed Israeli response is based on the results of a thorough examination by the Military Intelligence Directorate. The examination’s findings revealed in an unequivocal manner that chemical warfare agents—likely nerve gas—were indeed used in the city of Douma in addition to chlorine, which usually isn’t lethal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, so Assad has all but won the war in Syria, ISIS and Al Qaeda (supported by the US) are on the run, and we are expected to believe that Assad would attack a hospital full of children with poison gas, knowing that this would allow the US to re-invade his country?!?

You are some special kind of stupid if you believe that one!

As global outrage mounts over Syria chemical attack, China warns against military action

At a regular press briefing in Beijing on Tuesday, Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said his country was "opposed to the wanton use of force or threat of force".

Before a "comprehensive, impartial and objective investigation" had been conducted into the incident, no party should "prejudge the results and come to conclusions randomly," he said.

"Military means will lead us nowhere."

China depends on West Asia for its oil supplies but has long taken a back seat in the region's disputes, only recently beginning to expand its role, hosting high-level delegations from both the Syrian government and the Opposition.
