Only 23 out of 59 US missiles hit target, damage is "laughable" - Syrian office

"The Shayrat airfield has for six months already been used by the Syrian Army as a ‘dump’ where the Syrian Arab Republic’s armed forces' old and already decommissioned military equipment waits before being sent to scrap or dismantling for old parts.

As a result of the US missile strike, six MIG-23’s were destroyed which were being repaired and one An-26 transport plane being recycled which, according to the technical staff of the base, already had its wings and power setup dismantled by the time of the attack.

In addition to equipment of Soviet production, as a result of the strike several light-duty transport aircraft of foreign production were destroyed," the Syrian military source concluded.

According to experts, the total damage of the missile strike was no more than 3-5 million US dollars. At the same time, by using not so tricky math, it is clear that for recycling such old Syrian equipment the US Army lost around 90 million US dollars.

'This is not the end': John McCain warns Trump, torches Rand Paul on Syria missile strikes

When asked whether the US should send ground troops to Syria, McCain said Assad "will not be overthrown by American troops." He said only a trained, well-equipped free Syrian army would prevail.

"The only reason why Bashar Assad is in power today is because of Russia and Iran — certainly not because of Syrians," McCain said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Songbird" is a war addict. No matter how many wars he gets he always wants more. If he wants to bomb Syria he should do it himself. At least the Syrians would be safe, given McCain's actual war record as a pilot who got shot down, as well as being suspected of triggering the fire on the USS Forrestal that destroyed enough US aircraft to qualify McCain as an enemy ace! Thank goodness McCain's daddy was an admiral (the same one who covered up Israel's deliberate attack on the USS Liberty) and could get the official record to blame a bad switch!

Then there was that whole Keating Five scandal, again from which McCain magically emerged unscathed!

Yep, we should send John over there to drop the bombs and see how he does! Can we paint his aircraft bright red, white, and blue, or is that still considered racist?

North Korea Condemns America's "Unforgivable Acts Of Aggression"

In an ironic twist given that many consider Trump's actions a symbolic show of strength to China's Xi, Reuters reports that North Korea said on Saturday U.S. missile strikes against a Syrian airfield on Friday were "an unforgivable act of aggression" that showed its decision to develop nuclear weapons was "the right choice a million times over."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For all those who said that the US strike in Syria would send the "right message" to North Korea: WRONG!!!!

Is This The Beginning Of The End For U.S. Empire?

Before I get into the meat of this post, I want to revisit something I wrote back in January.

From the post, Very Powerful People in the U.S. Government Want War – This is Their Sales Pitch:

We need to understand that those who want this war will be absolutely relentless. The sales pitch will not end until they get exactly what they want. This is where all of us critical thinkers need to play a key role. We must be prepared to diligently analyze all unsubstantiated official claims, and push back against the war-mongers, because we know for certain the oligarch-owned corporate media won’t. We must be prepared to inform our fellow citizens about what’s happening so that we don’t fall victim to a cheap sales pitch with devastating consequences. Unfortunately, we must also be prepared for a possible deep state false flag if the current sales tactic falls on deaf ears.

U.S. Ambassador to United Nations warns of further military action in Syria as mainstream media pushes war with Russia

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley has threatened further military action in Syria following the shocking missile strikes on an airbase inside the country in response to a chemical attack that some have blamed on the Assad regime.

“The United States took a very measured step last night,” Haley told the UN Security Council in an emergency session to discuss the bombing in Syria.

Venezuelans called to flood streets in anti-Maduro protest

Opponents of President Nicolas Maduro are calling on demonstrators to flood the streets of Caracas on Saturday as part of a weeklong protest movement that shows little sign of losing steam.

Past demonstrations were sometimes planned weeks in advance to guarantee high turnout. But now the almost-daily churn of events in what's being called the "ongoing coup" — the government's alleged moves to accumulate more power — has energized and united the normally fractious opposition leading up to Saturday's march.

Authorities on Friday barred former presidential candidate Henrique Capriles from seeking office for 15 years for administrative irregularities as governor of Miranda state, a move decried by his supporters and foreign governments as another step toward dictatorship. It followed last week's decision by the Supreme Court to gut the opposition-controlled legislature of its last vestiges of power.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The real question is, how much longer will the Venezuelan military continue to stand with the current government?!?

Because if there is a shift by the military against it, Maduro is gone.

Was Israel The Reason For The U.S. Strike On Syrian Military Base?

By Brandon Turbeville

After the U.S. missile strikes in Syria, many may have wondered why the al-Sha’ayrat airfield was the target. In other words, what was so important about this airbase as opposed to all the others? The Trump administration, for their part, claimed that they targeted “chemical weapons” being stored at the base and that this particular base was where the chemical weapons originated.

Of course, in order to believe the Trump administration’s claims...

A Strike in Syria Restores Our Credibility in the World

After President Bashar al-Assad of Syria once again attacked his own citizens with poison gas, the civilized world recoiled in horror at images of children writhing in pain and suffocating to death. President Trump voiced this justified outrage at a news conference on Wednesday, and the next day he took swift, decisive action against the outlaw Assad regime. But these strikes did more than simply punish Mr. Assad and deter future attacks; they have gone a long way to restoring our badly damaged credibility in the world.

It’s hard to overstate just how low the standing of the United States had fallen because of President Barack Obama’s failure to enforce his own “red line” against Mr. Assad’s use of chemical weapons in 2013. I was one of the few Republican members of Congress who supported strikes against Syria then. Because of that, I’ve heard from dozens of world leaders expressing their doubts about the security commitments of the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Senator Cotton, a word please.

Americans, and the world, understand that this was a false flag operation, engineered to evoke horror and rage, so that the bombs could be immediately dropped, before there was a thorough investigation.

And sir, have you had a rather "convenient" episode of SMD (selective memory disorder), which caused you to forget that in 2013, the US gave Syrian rebels poison gas, in order to create an attack against the Syrian people to be blamed on Al-Assad's government, as the excuse for regime change?!?


These strikes have not "...gone a long way to restoring our badly damaged credibility in the world."

In fact, these strikes have telegraphed to the world the absolute lack of restraint which characterises this administration, and shown that in the most foaming at the mouth, mad-dog, logic-free manner, the US government will strike anyone, anywhere, just because it can, even when it is punishing the absolutely wrong people.

The tensions with Russia are escalating by the millisecond over this, and may lead to US/Russian military conflict, and most probably sooner rather than later. How, in the name of heaven does this "restore our credibility in the world." ?!? The short answer is, it cannot.

And to all countries which are/have been thinking about developing nuclear weapons; this strike will instill the sure and certain knowledge that unless they have these weapons as a deterrent, the US will attack them as well.

Look for countries like Saudi Arabia to be looking to buy/build a bomb, and the government of Pakistan, a nuclear-armed nation will oblige.

​S. Arabia calls in off-the-shelf nuke option with Pakistan – report

Can you say "destabilisation", Senator Cotton?!?

I knew you could!!

Was it really sarin, was Assad to blame and could Western spy agencies be involved?

Was sarin gas actually used in Tuesday’s attack?

The evidence for sarin use largely comes from reports from Turkish doctors treating survivors of the Syria attack.

Victims in the rebel-held town of Khan Sheikhoun were choking, foaming at the mouth, defecating and vomiting – all of which is consistent with sarin use.

Sarin, a colourless, odourless liquid at room temperature, is expensive and complex to manufacture.

The two key chemical compounds – a phosphorus variant and isopropyl alcohol – are mixed near the point of use, usually hours before it is released.

This is to avoid accidents and degradation in storage. The level of sophistication required in handling sarin would suggest state involvement.

Trump promised to drain the swamp. How’s that going?

Remember when Donald Trump ran for president and he said that he would fight for American workers and bring back jobs?

Remember how he said “I’m going to fight for every person in this country who believes government should serve the people — not the donors and special interests,” or that time he said would “drain the swamp in Washington?”

Millions of Americans, many of them working class or fighting to stay in the middle class, believed him.

So how is Trump doing at keeping his promises? This might come as a shock, but it turns out, not so well.

Russian Warship Steaming Toward U.S Destroyers Off Syria Coast

Early this morning we reported that as part of its response to the Syrian attack, in addition to suspending communication with U.S. forces designed to stop planes colliding over Syria, the Russian frigate Admiral Grigorovich would be deployed to the Tartus naval base in Syria. The Russian Black Sea Fleet’s frigate The Admiral Grigorovich, currently on a routine voyage, would enter the Mediterranean later on Friday, a military-diplomatic source in Moscow told TASS, adding that the ship would make a stop at the logistics base in Syria’s port of Tartus.

BREAKING: Bombed Syrian Sharyat air base ‘back in operation’

This information – which appears to be true – suggests that Russian claims that the US missile strike was ‘inefficient’ and that only 23 of the 59 cruise missiles launched reached their target, and that the main runway of the base is undamaged, are true.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To sum up:

1. Based on an obvious false-flag that nobody believes, Trump launched about $90 million worth of Tomahawk Cruise missiles at the Shayrat Air Base in Syria.

2. Out of 59 missiles, only 23 actually hit the base, with most of those hitting the outskirts of the base and doing no real damage.

3. 18 people were killed on the base, including Russian personnel. Many died fighting the fires rather than in the attack itself.

4. Nine planes were destroyed, six of them 1960s vintage MIG-23s.

5. The remaining 37 cruise missiles hit civilian targets including the villages of Shayrat, Al-Hamrat, and Al-Manzul, killing more civilians, including children!

So Trump, in his faux fury over the faux Assad crime of killing civilians and children ... is killing civilians and children.

6. And the base is back in operation.

Syria: New U.S. Airstrike Support “Request Scheme” For Al-Qaeda

Al-Qaeda and its sidekick Ahra al-Sham welcomed the U.S. strikes and Abu Ivanka al Amriki on their side. The theocratic dictatorship of Saudi Arabia offered its full support as did its British creators.

The U.S. airstrike delivers a message to al-Qaeda. Whenever under military pressure al-Qaeda can now stage or fake a “chemical attack” and the U.S. will act to destroy its enemy, the Syrian government. Acts as the one last night are then direct military support by the U.S. on al-Qaeda’s request.

Trump is the third U.S. president in a row who promised less belligerence during his campaign only to deliver more after the election. The “democratic” veil of the U.S. oligarchic rule thus rips further apart.

False Flags and the Trump Administration: Expect an Erratic Flip-Flop Foreign Policy, a Return to Gunboat Diplomacy and More Illegal Wars of Aggression

International law is being more and more discarded in favor of international anarchy

It is a sad fact that in totalitarian states, but also in our so-called democracies, it seems that wars of aggression are now based and sold with official lies and fraudulent fabrications in order to fool the people. Warmongers in government know that people do not like wars, especially illegal wars of aggression, against countries that have not attacked them. That is why their first choice is to attempt to drag the people along with lies and false pretexts for war, and by dehumanizing any potential enemy through crude propaganda.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What we have in the United States is an illusion of living in a democratic republic.

Oh yes, we have elections; but these Kabuki-like processes only give us candidates which the American Deep State has vetted, and are very certain to do its will, once elected.

So ultimately, the American people have utterly no choice over their own destiny; and if the deep state is annoyed with a President, or Presidential Candidate, that person can be assassinated, sometimes very publicly, as was the case with the Kennedy brothers, and no one dares point a finger at the real culprits.

Syria: Trump May Just have Started World War III

People stand up and become disabler of the empire!

Syria is a mere square on this murderous chess board, as was Yugoslavia, Libya, Iraq, Somalia, Afghanistan, and many more to come. The purpose is not ‘winning a war’ – that would be too simple. The purpose is creating and leaving behind chaos, eternal chaos. In the case of Syria a balkanization of the country, what Clinton did to Yugoslavia. The old ‘divide to conquer’ – it still works after hundreds of years. People are still blinded to these oldest and most rudimentary of war strategies. They still fall for it; don’t notice; swallow the lies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I frankly don't think the worst is over here; if President Trump does order another strike against Syria, Russia may very well counter militarily.

Their "line in the sand" here is that Al-Assad must be allowed to stay; anything that counters that scenario will be most likely me with extreme prejudice.

Apr 08 08:50

It's WMD all over again. Why don't you see it?

The pressures on anyone communicating with western media from such places can only be imagined.

And then there is this simple point. Why would the Syrian government use gas at this stage in a war it has recently begun to win with conventional munitions? You don’t have to believe that the Assad state is saintly to ask this question, and I don’t believe that. Please see http://dailym.ai/2h1XZAv Carla del Ponte, for the UN, has in the past accused the *rebels* of gas use http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/syria/10039672/UN...

Wicked and brutal they may well be, but they would have to be stupid and possibly mad to do such a thing, just as an important conference convenes in Brussels https://ec.europa.eu/neighbourhood-enlargement/news_corner/news/brusse... to discuss the future of Syria.

US Insists Russia Responsible for Syria Gas Attack

With Russia complaining that the US launched an illegal attack against Syria on Thursday night, based on unproven allegations of them launching a gas attack against northwestern Idlib Province earlier in the week, US officials have shifted to trying to blame Russia for the incident.

The Pentagon has announced that they are carrying out an investigation into the putative gas attack, saying that they want to see if Russian warplanes “took part” in the attack. Russia has insisted that no such gas attack took place to begin with, and that a Syrian conventional strike hit a rebel warehouse full of chemicals.

US officials don’t seem to be too worried about anyone proving anything, however, with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson insisting in comments today that Russia “bears responsibility” for the attack because they played such a major role in the 2013 chemical disarmament on Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, folks, it's official; in even making this accusation that Russia was somehow complicit in this gas attack, the US government has just jumped the shark, indulging in this desperation on the cusp of madness through which to "justify" this rash, unjustified, stupid attack against Syria.

#Vault7: WikiLeaks release shows CIA ‘Grasshopper’ used stolen ‘Russian mafia’ malware

WikiLeaks confirmed that the CIA did not merely copy and paste the suspected Russian malware but appropriated "[the] persistence method, and parts of the installer,” which were then modified to suit the CIA’s purposes.

The latest release came with an emblem containing a grasshopper and the words: “Look before you leap,” a possible reference to how the latest leaked tools would allow the CIA to prepare a machine for future hacking, without raising suspicion.

The rootkits can be installed and used as a 'man on the inside' who can allow more malicious software through undetected in future, if the CIA felt it necessary. If suspicions were raised on initial installation, they would know not to proceed with a more extensive operation.

Lacking Clear Syria Plan, US Threatens More Strikes

Last night, the United States attacked Syria, launching 59 Tomahawk missiles against a Syrian air base in a move that marked a dramatic reverse in Trump Administration policy toward Syria. What that policy actually is, however, is totally unclear.

Reporters unsurprisingly had a lot of questions, and the White House, also unsurprisingly, had no answers, dodging all questions about the goals of the new US intervention in Syria, and what the overall strategy or even next steps either militarily or diplomatically is.

All the White House would say is that the US attacks were “very decisive,” even if they aren’t all that clear what decision they even made. Beyond that, administration officials were talking up the idea that the US might launch more attacks in the near future.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is painfully apparent to me, that this administration has no clue, and no cohesive plan, about moving their Syria policy forward.

And the question which would keep me awake at night is, if there are more attacks, just what, precisely, will Russia do to counter them?!?

Russia's Putin is the master of geopolitical restraint, but I am afraid that there will be a point of no return for him, and that we will be looking at war with Russia over Syria.

Just because a tactic is the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly wrong and stupid thing the US government could do, unfortunately, is no guarantee that it will not do it.

'Amnesia' IoT botnet feasts on year-old unpatched vulnerability

Hackers have brewed up a new variant of the IoT/Linux botnet "Tsunami" that exploits a year-old but as yet unresolved vulnerability.

The Amnesia botnet targets an unpatched remote code execution vulnerability publicly disclosed more than a year ago in DVR (digital video recorder) devices made by TVT Digital and branded by over 70 vendors worldwide.

The vulnerability affects approximately 227,000 devices around the world with Taiwan, the United States, Israel, Turkey, and India being the most exposed, specialists at Unit 42, Palo Alto Networks' threat research unit, warn.

The Amnesia botnet is yet to be abused to mount a large-scale attack but the potential for harm is all too real.

Forget Mirai – Brickerbot malware will kill your crap IoT devices

The malware targets Linux-based IoT devices running the BusyBox toolkit, and seems to have a particular affinity for Ubiquiti network devices, which have their own security issues. Once inside the operating system, the code starts to scramble the onboard memory using rm -rf /* and disabling TCP timestamps, as well as limiting the max number of kernel threads to one.

Brickerbot then flushes all iptables firewall and NAT rules and adds a rule to drop all outgoing packets. Finally it tries to wipe all code on the affected devices and render them useless – a permanent denial of service.

To block the attack, the key factor is disabling Telnet and changing the device's factory-set passwords. Radware also recommends using intrusion prevention systems to lock down devices.

Russian Defense Ministry to suspend communications hotline with Pentagon as of April 8More:http://tass.com/defense/940208

Russian Defense Ministry suspends as of April 8 the operations of a communications hotline with the Pentagon, which the two sides established in line with a memorandum of understanding on prevention of incidents and ensuring of flight safety in Syrian airspace, Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov, the Defense Ministry's official spokesman told reporters on Friday.
"About an hour ago, the US military attache in Moscow was summoned to the Defense Ministry to get an official note, which said the Russian side was suspending as of 00:00 hours on April 8 the observance of its obligations under the memorandum of understanding on prevention of incidents and ensuring of flight safety in the course of operation in the Syrian Arab Republic," he said.

Gen. Konashenkov refuted US media reports claiming Russia had decided to keep the hotline open.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This cessation of the communications hot line is going to nearly guarantee military confrontation between the US and Russia over Syria.

There are far more vaccine-damaged children in America than chemical weapons-damaged children in Syria

President Trump’s explanation for the attack included these words:

Assad choked out the lives of innocent men, women and children. It was a slow and brutal death for so many. Even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered in this very barbaric attack. No child of god should ever suffer such horror.

If you replace the word “Assad” with “CDC” or “the vaccine industry,” it all makes even more sense. Vastly higher numbers of children right here in America have been “cruelly murdered” in the “barbaric attack” of toxic vaccines than have ever been killed by chemical weapons in Syria.

I agree with the President that “No child of God should ever suffer such horror,” but I wonder when this President will start working to stop the chemical assault on America’s children that’s being waged every day by the vaccine industry.

Trump’s Options for North Korea Include Placing Nukes in South Korea

The National Security Council has presented President Donald Trump with options to respond to North Korea's nuclear program — including putting American nukes in South Korea or killing dictator Kim Jong-un, multiple top-ranking intelligence and military officials told NBC News.

Both scenarios are part of an accelerated review of North Korea policy prepared in advance of Trump's meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping this week.

The White House hopes the Chinese will do more to influence Pyongyang through diplomacy and enhanced sanctions. But if that fails, and North Korea continues its development of nuclear weapons, there are other options on the table that would significantly alter U.S. policy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

PLEASE, someone out there, tell me that this is a belated, and very bad, April Fool's joke; this is the bloody best the NSC can come up with, American nukes in South Korea, or a decap strike against Kim Jung Un?!?

Would someone please remind these people that China and North Korea have a mutual defense pact

The Sino-North Korean Mutual and and Cooperation Friendship Treaty

and any attack against North Korea will be construed by China as an attack against it?!?

What should be going on here, is a massive attempt to get China, North and South Korea and the US back to the negotiating table, and creating a legitimate peace treaty with which to replace the existing armistice, with the quid pro quo being North Korea's stopping of all of its nuclear weapons programs, and submitting their sites to international inspections, as Iran does with the IAEA.

Of course, such a suggestion is .....completely logical, and therefore has most probably already been thrown out of the pile of possibilities the NSC is presenting President Trump on North Korea.

Make America Neocon Again

It doesn’t take a military analyst to grasp that the American attack on a remote Syrian airfield contradicts every possible military rationale. If America really believed that Assad possessed a WMD stockpile and kept it in al-Shayrat airbase, launching a missile attack that could lead to a release of lethal agents into the air would be the last thing it would do. If America was determined to ‘neutralise’ Assad’s alleged ‘WMD ability’ it would deploy special forces or diplomacy. No one defuses WMD with explosives, bombs or cruise missiles. It is simply unheard of.

America targeted al-Shayrat because it knew with certainty that there were no WMD in that location. It was a firework show. It had no military objective.

Cable News Praises Trump On Syria, Because Bombing Stuff Is ‘Presidential’

President Donald Trump announced the first serious military intervention of his young presidency on Thursday evening, a strike on a Syrian air base launched in retaliation for a horrific chemical weapons attack on civilians earlier in the week.

The strike was largely symbolic, and some critics of the move saw it as little more than a slap on the wrist for Syrian President Bashar Assad, whom the U.S. has accused of orchestrating the chemical attack. And while it raised a number of questions about a possible retaliation, civilian casualties, legality, and just how comprehensive the military strategy was, there was one constituency that, by and large, approved.

On cable news, Trump’s decision to take action was nothing short of heroic.

CNN’s Fareed Zakaria said Friday morning that “Donald Trump became President of the United States” the moment the bombs started dropping.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One of the greatest qualities in a true, national leader is restraint; what President Trump demonstrated, with this bombing run against a Syrian air base on Thursday, is that he is pathologically incapable of exercising this trait, and is now perceived by the world as an orange-haired orangutan, ordering the flinging the destructive, high-tech equivalent of poo.

And that statement by CNN's Zakaria demonstrates, in a profoundly painful way, how deeply the corporate presstitutes are faithfully in bed American Deep State.

This bombing, when there was absolutely no logical reason for Al-Assad to have ordered this chemical attack, was massively ill-advised, and has greatly complicated the relationship between Russia and the United States, and may lead to a military confrontation past the point of no return.

The reality is that the CIA gave the jihadists poison gas, and showed them how to use it in 2013, wanting to frame the Al-Assad government for the attack in order to justify an invasion of Syria>

The bottom line, historically, is that the American government lies to create an agenda to justify it doing whatever it wants, whenever it wants to it, and such agenda frequently has absolutely no basis in reality.

Swedish police have arrested the man they accuse of plowing a hijacked beer delivery truck into a crowd in central Stockholm on Friday, killing four people and wounding more than a dozen in what they called a terror crime.

After a five-hour manhunt on Friday, Swedish police apprehended the man who matched the profile of a person seen leaving the crime scene, but cautioned they had yet to ascertain whether he was the suspected perpetrator. Magistrates have until Tuesday to decide whether the suspect should remain in custody, and specify charges. “He is suspected of conducting an act of terror,” Swedish prosecutors’ spokeswoman Karin Rosander said.

Conservative talk show host, Michael Savage, who fervently supported Trump during the Presidential campaign, soured on him today. Savage, referencing his background in science, having a PhD in epidemiology, said the alleged gas attack in the ISIS controlled city of Idlib was most likely phosgene and not sarin.

Backing up his claim that the attack did not contain sarin, Savage made reference to photos showing first responders attending to bodies without gloves or protective gear. Had sarin been used in the attack, all of those men in white helmets would be dead.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Welcome to our world, Michael Savage, and the deep sense of betrayal Michael and I feel by this rash, unwarranted, knee-jerk act by President Trump; the world has become a far more dangerous place because of this action, and I shudder to think what will happen if there is a direct confrontation between the US and Russian military over Syria.

Unlike last month's unexpectedly week consumer credit report, which saw a plunge in revolving, or credit card, debt moments ago the Fed, in its latest G.19 release, announced that there were few surprises in the February report: Total revolving credit rose by $2.9 billion, undoing last month's $2.6 billion drop - the biggest since 2012 - while non-revolving credit increased by $12.3 billion, for a total increase in February consumer credit of $15.2 billion, roughly in line with the $15 billion expected.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If there was ever a time to get your credit card debt under control, that time is now.

Yellen has announced that she is looking at more increases in the Fed's lending rates, which will absolutely affect your interest on your credit card.

Airstrikes on Syria might also send message to North Korea

With all eyes on the Syria airstrikes, however, the expected showdown over North Korea policy ended with no significant breakthroughs to announce.

The two leaders instead broadly vowed to work more closely to get the North to abandon its nuclear weapons, a vow that Pyongyang has heard many times before.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yes, Trump's strike into Syria sent a message, but probably the wrong one.

First, the strike was botched, with only 23 cruise missiles actually hitting the target. The other cruise missiles are known to have hit the villages of Shayrut, Al-Hamrat, and Al-Manzul, miles away from the intended target, killing civilians, including children.

Second, the US Government has a long and dark track record of using lies to justify invasions. We all remember that whopper about Saddam's nuclear weapons. Less remembered is that the US Government tried to claim Assad gassed his own people in 2013 and 2014, with subsequent investigations revealing that it was the US-backed rebels carrying out the attacks to frame Assad. That explains why this last attack was rushed through before any investigation could be carried out.

But if you think about it, the claim that Assad gassed his own people is absurd on the face of it. He has almost won his war against the US-backed rebels who have been trying to steal his nation for almost 6 years. Peace talks were just starting in Brussels to bring the way to an end. And only last Monday, the White House had indicated a willingness to allow Assad to remain as President if he won the next election.

So where is Assad's motive to do something as stupid as gas his own people? It provides no military advantage at all, especially since the attack was against civilians and not the rebels. Indeed it is obvious that the choice of civilians and children was intentional, to manufacture the greatest possible horror at what "Assad" had done. Civilians and children were the targets in the 2013 and 2014 false-flag attacks, including Assad's supporters, the Alawites! From a propaganda perspective, the goal of creating shock and horror is to trick people into not thinking about what is being claimed, because once they start thinking about it, the lie quickly falls apart!

The attack aids the US-backed rebels who have started to regain ground in Syria now that Syria's defenses have been weakened by Trump's cruise missile attack.

The attack allows the Neo-Con war-hawks to promote their agenda of regime change.

The gas attack benefits Assad's enemies, not Assad.

We have been down this road before. Fool me once...

So, what is the message that was sent? That the US Government makes up fairy tales and then invades innocent nations on the basis of those fairy tales, to capture their resources (mostly oil and oil revenue). Leaders of every nation, not just North Korea, are going to hang onto their nuclear weapons as a deterrent to being invaded all that much harder. Those nations without nuclear weapons to deter invasion are probably deciding to acquire them, possibly on the black market, such as when Israel tried to sell nuclear weapons to the former government of South Africa.

The message sent is not the one intended, and the world just became a more dangerous place because of it!

US President (fill in name) bombed (fill in country) because (fill in lie). Had enough lie-started illegal Wars of Aggression to demand .01% arrests, or need even more destruction, death, looting?

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

The context of US armed attack on Syria is the latest crime du jour of a .01% rogue state empire annually killing millions, harming billions, and looting trillions. This article will focus on that context, with an obvious conclusion that all of us with Oaths to support and defend the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, must take two actions:

1. Refuse all orders of armed attacks because there are no lawful orders for unlawful war.
2. Demand US .01% arrests for ongoing lie-started and Orwellian-unlawful Wars of Aggression.
US .01% illegal War of Aggression on Syria

11-Year-Old Boy Commits Suicide After Social Media Prank

Along with the Syrian government, Russian President Vladimir Putin condemned Trump’s missile attack on the country, saying in a statement released by the Kremlin Friday that the airstrike was not only “an aggression against a sovereign state in violation of international law” but it was authorized under a “far-fetched pretext.”

U.S. Cruise Missile Attack on Syrian Airbase Is Absurd

Launching 60 cruise missiles against the Syrian government before an independent investigation can prove who exactly was behind the gas attack in Syria was foolish and played into the hands of the global warmongers.
President Donald Trump threw away a great deal of support by ordering a cruise missile attack on Syria April 7. Obviously, Assad would have had no interest in using internationally banned chemical weapons in a war that he has already won, well aware of the inevitable American response.
Note: 9 civilians 5 children murdered by the missles

Four children among nine civilians dead in US Syria strike: state media

The news agency said five of the civilians, among them three children, were killed in the village of Shayrat just outside the base of the same name.

"An American missile also hit the village of Al-Hamrat, which killed four civilians including a child," it added.

"Another seven civilians were wounded when a missile hit homes in Al-Manzul, four kilometres (two and a half miles) away from the Shayrat air base," it added.

Government Killing of Civilians by Gas

One point that needs to be made, but rarely if ever mentioned, is that in the supposed rationale for US attack on Syria to avenge/prevent claimed civilian deaths by government gas attacks, the US government itself has used similar weapons openly as recently as the FBI/ATF attack on the Branch Davidian compound near Waco Texas in the spring of 1993.

76 men, women and children died in this senseless military style assault which used highly lethal military CS gas as a primary weapon. CS is not a nerve agent and it doesn’t in normal concentrations cause immediate death. But it is highly flammable, persistent and designed to incapacitate targets by causing massive biological reactions including inability to breathe, massive tearing in the eyes, nose bleeds, etc.

45 times Trump said attacking Syria was a bad idea and might start World War III

President Donald Trump's administration ordered a missile attack on the Syrian government's al-Shayrat airbase near Homs on Thursday evening, taking a rapid about-face on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to a military conclusion in the wake of a chemical attack which killed scores and left hundreds injured.

But Trump has repeatedly spoken out against attacking the Syrian government, suggesting U.S. involvement in the conflict could make a bad problem worse and possibly lead to a global war.

In October, Trump blasted then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's position on Syria — that the U.S. military should take out al-Assad's airfields, the exact type of strike Trumphe ordered Thursday — by saying attacking a Russian-backed government could start World War III.

U.S. leadership is an absolute joke and will drive this entire country into a brick wall in the years ahead. John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Chucky Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, are you kidding me? They remind me of George Armstrong Custer, and we all know how that turned out.

Only 23 out of 59 US missiles hit target, damage is "laughable" - Syrian officer

This is a joke. The USN hit a salvage and repair yard. Maybe the US Military isn't behind Trump!

A military source from the Syrian Arab Republic has disclosed the details of the consequences of the US’ missile strike on Syria’s Sharat airfield:

"The Shayrat airfield has for six months already been used by the Syrian Army as a ‘dump’ where the Syrian Arab Republic’s armed forces' old and already decommissioned military equipment waits before being sent to scrap or dismantling for old parts.
According to experts, the total damage of the missile strike was no more than 3-5 million US dollars. At the same time, by using not so tricky math, it is clear that for recycling such old Syrian equipment the US Army lost around 90 million US dollars.

FRENCH ELECTION LATEST: Voters think media is AGAINST Marine Le Pen

A survey by the French Think Tank Fondapol, which was conducted in March, said 55 per cent of French people think that the media treats Ms Pen in a negative light.

This compares to just 19 per cent of people who think that the media treats Ms Le Pen’s main rival the leader of En Marche!, Emmanuel Macron, negatively.

The survey has revealed that only 15 per cent of people believe that the media treats the FN leader positively, which compares to 46 per cent of people who think that Mr Macron is treated favourably.
