Dear President Trump: Please Read This Before Bombing Syria

Dear Mr. President,

You've said you're a smart man.

Now's the time to prove it ...

You've said that you'll get to the bottom of who carried out the latest Syrian chemical weapons attack.

We can help ...

Instead of bombing Syria for a chemical weapons attack, please prove that you are smart enough to learn the facts.

If you spend 5 minutes reading, you'll learn that Syria has been "framed" for more than 50 years, that the U.S. first carried out a "regime change" operation against Syria in 1949 and has been drooling to do it again ever since, that the Ruskies have framed other countries to justify war ... and that you're too smart to fall for the "Oldest Trick In the Book".

OF THE LIARS, BY THE LIARS, AND FOR THE LIARS

In today's enlightened age of alternative media and global internet communications, lies by rulers are quickly laid bare. Yet most people remain trapped by their beliefs of what they imagine their rulers to be, and greet each new revealed mendacity with, "What? Our ruler lied to us?" The question more properly ought to be, "When don't rulers lie to us?"

The historical fact is that all rulers lie pretty much all of the time, and each newly revealed lie ought not to be thought of as a shocking isolated incident, but merely a continuation of standard operating bullshit! In short, the vast majority of what you are told by rulers is a lie, and the rare moment of absolute truth a rare and precious gem worthy of celebration.

Here are some examples from history.

THE LIE OF THE (LAST) CENTURY

There is nothing new in a government lying to their people to start a war. Indeed because most people prefer living in peace to bloody and horrific death in war, any government that desires to initiate a war usually lies to their people to create the illusion that support for the war is the only possible choice they can make.

May hesitating to join Trump's attack on Syria, wants more evidence – Times

British Prime Minister Theresa May is reportedly not keen on joining the US in its potential strike against Syria. The PM told Donald Trump she will not act until there's more evidence of Syria's culpability, the Times reports.

On Monday, US President Donald Trump said that he was "very strongly, very seriously" considering a military option in Syria, promising to make a "major decision" within up to 48 hours.

While the heating-up rhetoric from Washington suggests a military response may be imminent, the UK might be second-guessing its strategic partner now. According to a report by the Times on Wednesday, May told Trump that she would not risk pounding Syria with missiles until she sees more compelling proof of Damascus's culpability in the incident on April 7.

Moscow to Trump: Are ‘smart’ missiles an attempt to destroy alleged chem attack evidence in Syria?

Responding to a threat from US President Donald Trump, who said Russia should prepare for “nice new and smart missiles” launched by America at Syria, Moscow said if the weapons were smart, they would target terrorists.

“Smart missiles should fly towards terrorists, not [Syria’s] lawful government, which has spent several years fighting against international terrorism on its territory,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said in response to Trump’s tweet on Wednesday.

She added the US may be seeking to undermine an inspection by chemical weapons experts, who are planning to investigate on the ground in Syria after the alleged attack which sparked the current confrontation between Russia and the US.

Syrian, Russian jets crowd Syria’s coastal provinces in response to US threats

The Syrian and Russian air forces have been conducting a large number of flights along the Syrian coast in response to the U.S.’ latest threat of force against the government in Damascus.

According to a military source in the Latakia Governorate, Syrian and Russian jets have been conducting nonstop flights along Syria’s coast since 6:00 A.M. (Damascus Time), with both air forces sharing the Hmaymim Airport in Jableh.

The source added that the Syrian Air Force has moved several jets to the Russian operated Hmaymim Airport in southwest Latakia.

The reason for the Syrian Air Force moving their jets to the Hmaymim Airport is due to the threat posed by the possible U.S. attack on their military installations.

Theresa May Won’t Blame Assad for Chemical Attack, Not ‘Confirmed’

Prime Minister Theresa May has indicated that more evidence is needed before blaming Bashar al-Assad for the latest chemical attack in Syria and taking military action against his regime.

Following phone calls with U.S. President Donald Trump and French premier Emmanuel Macron, No 10 said the international community “needed to respond” but did not confirm Assad was responsible at this stage.

The End of International Law?

The war against the Greater Middle East should end with the withdrawal of US troops within the next six months. And yet nothing proves that peace will settle in each of the countries that were invaded. Today we are witnessing what seems to be a tentative to get rid of international law. Will this consolidate a division of the world into two parts, or will it open to a generalised conflict?

From Skripal To Syria, Will Western Bluffs Spark World War 3?

The situation in the Middle East and the world as a whole is a matter of skyrocketing concern. The risks of conflict were escalated a little over a month ago when UK Prime Minister Theresa May launched the “Skripal affair” and threatened Russia with cyberwar. Then the tune of chemical weapons supposedly used against Syrian “rebels” in Eastern Ghouta was sung more than a few times with the same notes of unsubstantiated arguments as a pretext to blame those who are working against the West’s interests. In Syria, the US and Britain are acting as the outright direct lawyers of jihadists, while the Syrian Army, supported by the Russian Air Force and volunteers from Iran, has virtually liberated Eastern Ghouta from jihadists.

Syria’s UN Ambassador Embarrasses Nikky Haley On Chemical Weapons – VIDEO

Syria’s permanent representative to the UN, Dr. Bashar Jaafari raises important questions during a United Nations Secuity Council session on Monday, 9 April 2018 to discuss reports of an alleged chemical attack in Douma, Syria.

However, the US representative, Nikki Haley, walked out immediately when Jaafari had very important questions raised.

These includes why the US never provides aid to children but always supplies weapons to terrorist groups.

Pentagon strips Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria troop numbers from web

After months of review, the Pentagon has released a quarterly report of the number of troops serving overseas — minus any data it previously reported about the number of service members deployed in combat.

The Defense Manpower Data Center for years has reported quarterly the number of active duty, National Guard and Reserve forces assigned to each state and stationed at each country overseas.

When asked last week why the quarterly December report still had not posted, a defense official said “DMDC is currently updating their policy for these reports. The information should be available soon, and retroactive numbers will be available.”

The Pentagon typically reports each quarter’s data three months after the quarter ends.

The December report, however, just had blank spaces where Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan figures used to be.

Taking the World to the Brink of Annihilation

This was Predicted

As reported at Tass, the Chief of Russia’s General Staff, Valery Gerasimov, predicted the current events almost a month ago. The report from March 13 says, "Russia has hard facts about preparations for staging the use of chemical weapons against civilians by the government forces. After the provocation, the US plans to accuse Syria’s government forces of using chemical weapons … furnish the so-called ‘evidence’ … and Washington plans to deliver a missile and bomb strike against Damascus’ government districts."

Gerasimov noted that Russian military advisors are staying in the Syrian Defense Ministry’s facilities in Damascus and "in the event of a threat to our military servicemen’s lives, Russia’s Armed Forces will take retaliatory measures to target both the missiles and their delivery vehicles."

Trump Declares Qatar an Ally in the War Against Terror

Hosting the Qatari Emir on Tuesday, President Trump has declared the Qataris to be “a very big advocate,” praising them as a key ally in the war on terrorism. This is a major step, as only last year President Trump was accusing Qatar, a long-standing US ally, of funding terrorism.

The emir appeared not to appreciate the way Trump presented their alliance as sudden, insisting his nation has been cooperating with the US against terrorism funding all along. Trump’s changing view of Qatar is likely reflective of regional needs.

The US focus right now seems to be scrambling to ready a US-led, coalition attack on Syria, and the major US base at Qatar, the headquarters of US Central Command, would play a major role in any new US war in Syria. Trump’s past alienation of the Qataris could have been something of an obstacle to that, particularly with the Saudis, who have positioned themselves as hostile to Qatar, likely to join the war.

Crown Prince: Saudis May Take Part in US Attack on Syria

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s visit to France has him right in the middle of negotiations of a US-led coalition to attack Syria. The prince confirmed at a news conference that the Saudi military could be involved in this operation.

“If our alliance with our partners requires it, we will be present,” Prince Mohammed confirmed. Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir also confirmed that discussions are ongoing with a number of different countries about the operation.

Jubeir said that the Saudi position is that Syria must be “held accountable,” over allegations of chemical weapon use. The Saudis have been backing regime change in Syria for years, so this position is unsurprising.

Robots replace soldiers in first breaching exercise of its kind

Humans took a backseat during a base exercise on Friday in which robots cleared obstacles for manned tanks and fighting vehicles.

U.S. and British troops participated in the Robotic Complex Breach Concept demonstration, during which several remote-controlled vehicles performed a task usually carried out by soldiers.

“We did a robotic breach today, which has never been done before. This is a historic moment,” said 1st Lt. Cody Rothschild, an officer with the 1st Infantry Division’s 2nd Armored Brigade Combat Team, currently on rotation in Europe. “This is a great step forward for the Army, and for robotics.”

Former US servicemember arrested after German train station fight turns deadly

A former U.S. servicemember is in jail and under investigation for allegedly punching and killing a German man outside the Kaiserslautern train station last month.

The 33-year-old American was arrested shortly after the March 30 fight. German police have not released his name, his former rank or his branch of service. But they confirmed Tuesday that he is a former member of the U.S. military.

The incident occurred about 5:50 a.m. after the American and a 40-year-old German man began fighting at Guimaraes-Platz by the train station, the police said. The American allegedly punched the German man so hard that he fell to the ground. Emergency medical officials revived the man, but he died later at the hospital, police said.

Witnesses helped police to identify and later arrest the suspect, who appeared to be heavily intoxicated.

The US Has Lost Global Power, and Is Now Just Faking It

It’s a hard job being a global hegemon and the world’s sole superpower.

You have to keep the entire planet in line. Every country needs to be taught its place, and kept there, by force if need be. Now and again a country or two has to be conquered or destroyed, just to teach others a lesson. Plus you have to relentlessly meddle in other countries’ politics, rigging elections so that only US-friendly candidates can win, run regime change operations and organize colored revolutions. Stop doing this, and some countries will start ignoring you. And then the rest will quickly realize that you are losing control and go their separate ways while ignoring you.

USS ‘Theodore Roosevelt’ sails in disputed South China Sea

A US aircraft carrier was sailing through the disputed South China Sea on Tuesday after China built a string of islands with military facilities in the strategic sea it claims almost in its entirety, AP said. The US Navy also flew a small group of Philippine generals, officials and journalists to the USS ‘Theodore Roosevelt’. Also on Tuesday, a Defense Ministry spokesman in Beijing said China is entitled to strengthen its defenses on islands in the disputed South China Sea. China’s military deployments are “the natural right of a sovereign nation that helps safeguard national sovereignty and security,” Ren Guoqiang said, adding that those measures aren’t directed at any specific countries.

UN Security Council Rejects Russian Resolution Supporting OPCW Mission in Syria

"The draft resolution has not been adopted, having failed to obtain the required number of votes," said UN Security Council President Gustavo Meza-Cuadra.

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) is considered the world's leading watchdog agency on the use of such weapons.

Russia, China, Bolivia, Kazakhstan and Ethiopia voted in favor of the resolution, while France, the United States, Britain and Poland voted against it. Other members of the 15-member council abstained from voting.

Chinese Aircraft Drill Over Mountains as War With Taiwan Becomes 'More Probable’

Warplanes from the People’s Liberation Army’s Eastern Theater Command recently conducted drills over rugged terrain in western China to simulate battle conditions over Taiwan, where it is ever “more probable” the planes will be sent for actual battle, the Global Times reports.

"The mainland needs to continue to prepare for a possible military clash across the Straits. A military showdown with Taiwan is becoming more probable and may take place sooner rather than later," an editorial in the Global Times published April 8 reads.

Pilots have recently practiced firing at ground targets and dogfighting over the Qinghair-Tibet plateau to simulate flying over mountains and through narrow valleys, which the pilots expect to have to navigate in the event of a military engagement with the island of Taiwan, which is separated from mainland China only by the 81 miles of sea in the Taiwan Strait.

Syrian Opposition to Launch Counter-Offensive After Possible US Strike - FSA

News about a new possible offensive in Syria comes as US President Donald Trump threatens with a missile strike on the country. Washington blames Damascus for conducting an alleged chemical attack in Douma, using reports by the controversial White Helmets as proof. Syria and Russia have denied the accusations, branding them a pretext for invasion.

A Free Syrian Army (FSA) commander Fateh Hassoun has announced that it will start a new offensive following a possible US strike on Syria. According to him, the FSA is planning on regaining lost areas and capturing new ones. He also claimed that the possible US strike would weaken Damascus' positions and will allow the start of "real negotiations."

Flashback: Trump says Clinton Syria policy would lead to World War III

While the race for the White House was still on Donald Trump warned that Hillary Clinton’s proposed policy over Syria was so aggresive that it could lead to conflict with Russia. Now, 18-months later we face the very same prospect that candidate Trump once warned of.

This hasn’t happened by accident but is the result of President Trump’s policy over Syria. Rather than withdrawing U.S. forces from the Middle East, as he suggested he would while campaigning for the White House, Trump has overseen a steady build-up of U.S. forces in the region.

As Native Americans would say, Donald Trump speaks with a forked tongue. Over the second-half of 2017 there was a 33% rise in U.S. forces deployed in the Middle East, and that figure doesn’t include the massive U.S. military build-up underway in Afghanistan.

Earlier this month he was still talking about about withdrawing from Syria “very soon“:

Trump Heads World Peace Into the Abyss Blindfolded

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

He’s a geopolitically ignorant businessman, influenced by hawkish neocons raging for endless wars, convincing him it’s the right thing to do, concealing the risks.

He’s blind to the danger endless wars of aggression pose, especially in Syria.

Russian and US forces in the country have polar opposite objectives – combating terrorism v. supporting it, seeking conflict resolution v. rejecting it, pursuing world peace and stability v. waging endless wars of aggression.

Clashing would pit the world’s dominant nuclear powers against each other. Does Trump understand the risks he’s taking?

These False Flags Were Used To Start A War

Just in case one's history textbook had a few extra pages ripped out, this may be a good time to recall just how far one's government is willing to go to start a war under false pretenses.

Below is a partial list of some of the documented "false flag" events that were intended and/or served to start a war in recent and not so recent history.

Franco-Prussian War

Otto von Bismarck waved a "red flag" in front of the "gallic bull" by re-editing a telegram from the Prussian King so that it appeared as though the King had insulted a French ambassador during a time of extremely tense French-German international relations. The telegram is known as the Ems Dispatch. It helped encourage the states to go to war.

Russia Vetoes US Resolution At UN To Lay Blame For Syria Chemical Attack; China Abstains

Russia on Tuesday vetoed a US-drafted and sponsored UN Security Council resolution on the alleged chemical incident in Syria that would have created a new inquiry to lay blame for chemical weapons attacks in the war-torn country. The draft was designed to fail and thus “justify” unauthorized action in Syria, Russia’s UN envoy said.

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.

The British Prime Minister Teresa May, US President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron agreed that in order to maintain the ban on the use of chemical weapons, the international community must respond to the alleged chemical attack in Syria, the spokesman for the British premier said.

“The Prime Minister held a telephone conversation with Trump who agreed that reports of a chemical attack in Syria are highly deserving of a condemnation, and if they are confirmed, there is yet to be proof of the outrageous cruelty of President of Syria Bashar al Assad in relation to his own people, as well as complete disregard for their legal obligations for the non-use of such weapons,” the British statement said

Warships With Cruise Missiles To Mediterranean

The Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group (HSTCSG) is being deployed to the Mediterranean Wednesday, where it will join the USS Donald Cook off Syrian territorial waters.

The aircraft carrier will be accompanied by guided-missile destroyers USS Arleigh Burke (DDG 51), USS Bulkeley (DDG 84), USS Forrest Sherman (DDG 98) and USS Farragut (DDG 99), as well as the guided-missile cruiser USS Normandy (CG 60). The Destroyers USS The Sullivans (DDG 68) and USS Jason Dunham (DDG 109) will join the HSTCSG later, according to a statement by the US Navy.

The Sachssen-class German frigate FGS Hessen (F 221) will also operate as part of the strike group during the first half of the deployment.

In addition to USS Donald Cook, the U.S has now dispatched USN Carrier Strike Group 8 to the Mediterranean/#Syria:

On the Threshold of War. “Entirety of Russian Military on High Alert”. Unconfirmed Reports

As Americans we must face the possibility that we have a criminally insane government in Washington that is leading the world to destruction.

A Russian Government Press Release:

False information is being planted about the alleged use of chlorine and other toxic agents by the Syrian government forces. The latest fake news about a chemical attack on Douma was reported yesterday. These reports are again referenced to the notorious White Helmets, which have been proved more than once to be working hand in glove with the terrorists, as well as to other pseudo-humanitarian organisations headquartered in the UK and the US.

We recently warned of the possibility of such dangerous provocations. The goal of these absolutely unsubstantiated lies is to protect the terrorists and the irreconcilable radical opposition that has rejected a political settlement, as well as to justify the possible use of force by external actors.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would suggest that Helmer may well be correct, looking at the avalanche of bovinely excremental fake news being shovelled at Americans by the corporate presstitutes, as though we had utterly no right to question the US government's motivations in this.

Winds of War Heading Toward Syria. Preplanned US Aggression, Confronting Russia

Washington and its allies use the Security Council as a sound stage platform for their imperial agenda – rule of law principles ignored, the UN Charter, other international law and America’s Constitution discarded.

Time and again the same or similar scenarios unfolded on the world stage, as well as in Washington and other key NATO capitals.

Facts don’t matter, only a pre-planned imperial agenda, naked aggression its defining feature. The die appears cast in Syria. Regime change is Washington’s long-sought objective.

Things appear heading toward something similar to US-led aggression on Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya, smashing these countries, eliminating their leadership, installing illegitimate pro-Western puppet regimes.

Russia wastes time and energy demanding an independent probe into the fake April 7 Douma incident.

US will act against ‘monster’ Assad with or without UN ? Haley

The US will act against the Syrian government with or without a UN blessing, US envoy Nikki Haley told the Security Council, blaming Russian “obstructionism” for allowing the alleged use of chemical weapons in Syria and beyond.
“We are beyond showing pictures of dead babies. We are beyond appeals to conscience. We have reached the moment when the world must see justice done,” Haley declared to the Security Council on Monday, accusing Russia of backing the “monster” [Bashar] Assad, who was murdering children with chemical weapons.

“The Russian regime, whose hands are all covered with the blood of Syrian children, cannot be ashamed by pictures of its victims. We’ve tried that before,” Haley said, adding that “no civilized government would have anything to do with Assad’s murderous regime.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ambassador Haley has obviously been greenlit to double down on accusations completely devoid of any facts; but then again, with such an Israeli-centric President as we have in President Trump, the idea is to regime change Damascus, then regime change Tehran.

Of course, what needs to be remembered, on the part of both Israel and Saudi Arabian leadership, the expectation is that this will be done primarily at the costs of American blood and American money.

It will be interesting, given the current circumstances, to see just how far Russia will allow the US go before doubling down, militarily, in both countries.

And Russia, as has been proven in the Syrian theatre of war, has weapons which actually work successfully.

We have seen how badly the US government's military misadventures have gone in Afghanistan; Iraq; Somalia; and Libya; unfortunately, we can certainly expect more of the same insanity in Syria.

RUSSIA THREAT: Putin warns US ‘you are in violation of EVERYTHING’ - Washington on ALERT

RUSSIA has issued the US with a dire warning after Donald Trump imposed a raft of harsh new sanctions. The Kremlin told Washington this afternoon the US is in violation of “anything and everything”.

Russia issued the fiery statement after the US issued its harshest raft of new sanctions against Vladimir Putin as Russia battles controversy in Europe and the Middle East.

After Moscow's stocks plummeted following the sanctions announcement, the Kremlin lashed out at Washington with an accusation of breaching “everything”.

Russia said: “This is outrageous from the standpoint of legality and violates anything and everything.”

The Kremlin said they were considering “a large variety of options” - a thinly veiled threat to Donald Trump and his White House administration.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Like the White House hasn't been threatening Russia over things it has not done, like poisoning Skripal, allegedly forcibly annexing Crimea from Ukraine, and generating a chemical attack in Syria?!?

Let's get real here!

I am very worried about a potential shooting war with Russia in Syria; our military doesn't have the weaponry; the money; the manufacturing; or the troop strength to insure a positive outcome to a war against Russia in Syria.

This administration is behaving like a hormone-driven adolescent, bouncing off the walls with no logic or fact being used, and threatening both Russia and Syria with false accusations.

The repercussions of such actions could be devastating to the US, and I am praying for all of our deployed right now, even if I believe how they are being used by this Administration is absolutely, and obscenely, morally wrong.

This was absolutely NOT the President Trump I had hoped we would get.

MERCENARIES UNLEASHED: BRITAIN IS GLOBAL LEADER IN PRIVATE MILITARY AND SECURITY

In the years since the declaration of a ‘war on terror’ and the invasions of first Afghanistan and then Iraq, the world has witnessed an enormous proliferation of private military and security companies (PMSCs) seeking to profit from instability and conflict. Hundreds of companies have been established in the past few years alone, and there now exists a vast private industry worth hundreds of billions of dollars. Sadly, rather than introducing binding regulation of the industry, the British government has decided to allow the mercenaries to regulate themselves.

The UK is an important hub for the PMSC industry. At the height of the occupation, around 60 British companies operated in Iraq. Now there are hundreds of British PMSCs operating in areas of conflict around the globe, working to secure government and corporate presence against a range of ‘threats’.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These organisations are not creating global "stability"; they can be counted upon to create even more global instability, for massive profits, of course.

TRUMP CANCELS SOUTH AMERICA TRIP TO "OVERSEE" SYRIA MILITARY RESPONSE

At the start of the month we reported that according to White House sources, Trump was pushing for a Nafta deal "over the next two weeks", which was expected to be unveiled "in principle" at the Summit of the Americas in Peru on April 13-14.

Alas, a Nafta deal announcement will not happen - or anything else for that matter - because moments ago the White House announced that Trump has canceled his South America trip to oversee the US Syria military response, which is expected to be announced - or launched - momentarily.

When it comes to summing up the complete insanity which has overtaken those in the Bowels of Power in DC, few sum it up better than does Paul Joseph Watson, who states:

"This is not “America first,” this is the deep state first.

What is Trump doing, falling for this lunatic, Deep State false flag attack?

We can only help cooler heads prevail, because a full scale Trump-US attack on Syria would result in a disastrous, wider world war with nuclear implications.

Meanwhile Stephan Molyneux exposes the clear motivations behind the latest Syrian chemical weapons hoax pushing Trump towards war with Syria, Iran and Russia.

Molyneux helps us take note that Trump is in a “Mueller” bind, and Democrats hate Russia…

“They loved Russia when Russia was communist, and international, and seeking to overthrow and destroy capitalism around the world.”

“They hate Russia now that Russia is Christian, somewhat capitalist (has a very low tax rate), and is nationalistic.”

Via Zerohedge…

Russian officials say they have found no trace of chemical weapons use while searching through Syria’s Douma region – and say that photos of victims posted by the White Helmets are fabrications, according to Russia’s Defense Ministry.

As well documented by Disobedient Media and elsewhere, the White Helmets are an organization funded by the United States which operates throughout various regions within Syria to “help” the anti-Assad effort while snapping convenient photos of Assad’s alleged regime-change-worthy atrocities."

USS DESTROYER APPROACHES RUSSIAN NAVAL BASE IN SYRIA, WITHOUT NOTIFYING RUSSIA

US Navy Destroyer, USS Donald Cook (DDG-75), equipped with Tomahawk cruise missiles, as well as the Aegis missile defence system, is fast approaching the port of Tartus in Syria.

The port of Tartus is the location for the Syrian logistics base of the Russian Navy.

On Monday CNN Turk reported that the US destroyer was at at a distance of 100 km from the Russian Navy port in Syria.

The destroyer left the Cyprus port of Larnaka for the Syrian shoreline, and was reportedly buzzed by Russian warplanes which circled above the US warship four times.

Most troubling part of this advancement into Syrian waters (and within striking range of the Russian base) is the fact that the U.S. Navy destroyer approached Syria WITHOUT notifying Russia.

Trump and his war hawk White House is pushing the world to complete nuclear destruction, all in support of Al Qaeda and White Helmet-ISIS propaganda.

Zerohedge reports…

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, this administration is taking this country to a war the American people do not at all want.

Watch for the next steps here to be the reinstitution of the draft in this country, and the suspension of the Constitution and Bill of Rights; because this is precisely where we are headed.

Moscow calls ‘chemical attack’ in Douma ‘fake news,’ warns against Syrian intervention

Reports of an alleged gas attack in the Syrian town of Douma are ‘fake news’ aimed at justifying potential strikes against Syria, Moscow said. It warned of “dire consequences” in the event of any military interference.

The Russian Foreign Ministry denounced the latest reports about a chemical attack that allegedly affected dozens of civilians in the militant-controlled town of Douma. It said the reports were another example of a “continuous series of fake news about the use of chlorine and other chemical agents by the government forces.”

Glenn Greenwald on Syria: U.S. & Israel Revving Up War Machine Won’t Help Suffering Syrian Civilians

We begin today’s show in Syria, where Israeli F-15 bomber jets have reportedly bombed a Syrian air base used by Iranian forces. There are reports that 14 people died in the strikes, including Iranian nationals. Israel is said to have launched the raid from Lebanon’s airspace. The Israeli bombing came a day after a suspected chemical weapons attack killed at least 60 people and wounded more than 1,000 in the Syrian town of Douma, the last rebel-held town in Eastern Ghouta. The Syrian opposition blamed the Assad government for carrying out the attacks, but Syria denied having any role. The chemical attack came one day after Syrian forces launched an air and ground assault on Douma. While international officials are still investigating what happened, President Trump took to Twitter to directly accuse Russian President Vladimir Putin of playing a role. The U.N. Security Council is meeting today to discuss the crisis in Syria.

Burn pits at US bases in Iraq, Afghanistan blamed for veterans' illnesses

Andrea Neutzling lives in fear of not being able to breathe.

She suffers from constrictive bronchiolitis, a rare, incurable lung disease. Her doctors blame her condition on the toxic smoke she inhaled from the trash burned in open pits during her year of deployment in Iraq with the U.S. Army.

Once a healthy high school athlete, Neutzling now takes along a portable oxygen machine whenever she leaves her house in the Meigs County village of Pomeroy. On particularly hot or cold days, she must employ special precautions, or her lungs could spasm.

"The pain is excruciating," she said. "It makes me want to vomit."

US Warships Reportedly Converging Near Syrian Coast As Tensions Shoot Up

The US is mulling several options for striking Syria in response to a suspected chemical-weapons attack in Douma, which Washington blames on Damascus.

The next few days may see already a second US Navy destroyer entering the Mediterranean Sea, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing sources at the Pentagon.

“The US already has one guided-missile destroyer, the USS Donald Cook, in the eastern Mediterranean, where it could take part in any strike on Syria, according to US defense officials. A second, the USS Porter could get there in a few days,” the newspaper wrote.

The Turkish newspaper Hurriyet wrote that Russian warplanes had allegedly buzzed the Donald Cook at least four times, but the report was later denied by the Pentagon.

US missile destroyer reportedly sailing toward Syria as Trump weighs options

The USS ‘Donald Cook’, a guided-missile destroyer, has left Cyprus and is reportedly moving to the eastern Mediterranean. The movement of the vessel comes as top US officials have threatened to attack Syria.

The Arleigh Burke-class warship, which carries 60 Tomahawk cruise missiles on board, left the port of Larnaca in Cyprus on Monday, the US Navy reported. Several media outlets cited defense sources as saying that the destroyer is moving towards Syria. The ship is currently the only naval asset the US could use to strike targets in Syria with cruise missiles.

Russian MP Vows Moscow Will Retaliate To Any US Aggression Against Syria

Russia will take all political, diplomatic and military retaliatory measures if necessary should the United States deliver a strike on Syria, Russian State Duma (lower house of parliament) Defense Committee Chairman and former Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Airborne Troops Vladimir Shamanov said on Tuesday according to TASS.

“The politics of double standards have hit rock bottom. And here the United Russia party conscientiously states that all political, diplomatic and military measures if necessary will be taken,” Shamanov vowed at a plenary meeting of the State Duma.

“No illegal action will remain unanswered,” he warned.

“They should not pin their hopes on their naval task forces and their deceptions. We are a sovereign country and we have allies and guarantors for those events taking place in Syria. We won’t let the Americans hammer nails on someone else’s anvil,” the senior MP continued to warn.

BREAKING: Russia’s Fleet On Red Alert In Expectation Of US Attack Against Syria

The air defense of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet has declared that it is combat alert.

This comes with the expectation that a US-led coalition, that would include France and the United Kingdom, will strike the Syrian military within the next 24 hours.

The reason for such a strike, a decision that US President Donald Trump is yet to make, is because the Syrian military have been blamed for an alleged chemical weapons attack in the East Ghouta town of Duma to the east of Damascus city center.

Russian chemical investigators have found no traces of chemicals being used at the alleged attack site, with Damascus approving an international investigation team to conduct their own research.

Trump Making ‘Major Decisions’ on Syria, Iran and Russia Response ‘Very Quickly’

The conflict between the U.S., the UK and Israel and Syria and its allies Iran and Russia looks set to escalate in the coming hours and days.

U.S. missile destroyer USS Donald Cook has quickly sailed to just off Syrian territorial waters and is reportedly being “harassed” by low-flying Russian warplanes. CNN Turkey reports that they have buzzed the “Arleigh Burke” class warship at least four times.

In an ongoing war of words, the U.S. is today expected to call for a U.N. Security Council vote on Tuesday on a proposal for a new inquiry into the responsibility for use of chemical weapons in Syria after reports of the poison gas attack on a rebel-held town in Eastern Ghouta.

The poison gas attack has been pinned on President Bashar al-Assad’s forces by the President Trump, PM May and some other western governments.

FLASHBACK - Turkey ‘used chemical weapons’ in north Syria

Kurdish doctors in Syria have accused Turkey of using chemical weapons in an offensive on Afrin, after several civilians were treated for symptoms of poison gas.

Turkey has vehemently denied the allegations, saying its forces do not use “banned ammunition” or keep chemical weapons in their arsenal.

But medics at the main hospital in the town, which lies near the border with Turkey, claim that the symptoms exhibited by the victims, and analysis of the substance, point to the use of chlorine gas. If proven to be true, it would be the first known chemical attack by Turkey in Syria.

‘War machine can’t run forever’: US military aircraft mishaps up nearly 40 percent over last 5 years

The number of US military aircraft accidents has skyrocketed by nearly 40 percent, compared to data from five years ago, raising concerns about over-extended resources that lack proper maintenance, according to a new report.

A six-month investigation by the Military Times has revealed that 5,500 aviation accidents occurred between 2013 and 2017, killing 133 US service members. The vast majority – approximately 4,000 – of the mishaps involved the US military’s fleet of manned warplanes: its bombers, fighter aircraft, cargo aircraft, refuelers, helicopters and tiltrotors, according to the Military Times.

ISRAEL TOLD US OFFICIALS ABOUT PLANS TO STRIKE SYRIAN AIR BASE

While the US didn't directly order the airstrike against Syria's T-4 airbase late Sunday night (Russia and the Syrian government had initially blamed the attack on the US), American officials reportedly confirmed to NBC News that the US had been informed of the impending strike by its ally, Israel.

Israel carried out the strikes against Syrian base, two U.S. officials tell @NBCNews, and the US was informed of the forthcoming strikes in advance. https://t.co/FKrc4V1ZM1

— NBC News (@NBCNews) April 9, 2018
The pre-dawn attack was intended as retaliation for a poison gas attack on the last rebel stronghold near Damascus. That attack has been blamed (with no supporting evidence) on the Syrian regime.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

An open letter to President Trump about the uptick in tensions with Syria and Russia: President Trump, please don't be neoconned into a corner here by the warmongers around you.

First, there is utterly no proof, nor any logic to, Al-Assad having given the order to gas his own people. His chemical weapons were destroyed a number of years ago, in a Russian-negotiated deal, if you might remember correctly.

Why would al Assad have ordered this, when his and the Russian military have all but wiped out the rebel forces?!?

The short answer is, he would not have done this, under these circumstances.

Also, the American people understand that the rebels both had, and knew how to use, chemical weapons.

I am watching the Faux news crawl as I type this, and the crawl says that a "The Us will be making major decisions in 24-48 hours." I guess that is when your pollsters will be working overtime, to judge the response of the American people to a potential war in Syria against Russia.

Mr. President, if those pollsters are telling you the truth, they will tell you that the American people are both war-weary, and war-skeptical at this time, having been lied into a number of both overt and covert wars,none of which were actually fought for the reasons the Federal Government has given us, during the last 20 years, and are tired of it; they want a President with the horse-sense to understand that ordering such a war would be the most pig-headedly, ham-fistedly idiotic thing this government to do right now.

And I tell you this, because at this point in its existence, the American military does not have the weaponry; the troop strength; the money; or the manufacturing to insure a successful outcome to a conventional war with Russia in Syria.

The prowess of Russia's military hardware has been very much documented in Syria, and the world is beating a path to Moscow's doorway to buy these weapons.

Unfortunately, due to the fact that weapons manufacturers in this country donate so much to both parties, the corporate groupthink in these companies believes that it is just fine to deliver weapons which are obsolete even before field testing; that they can charge obscene cost over-runs on their products; and that products which may never work completely as advertised are just fine to deliver, the F-35 being a case in point.

If the US is to win on the battlefield, these notions must change, and immediately.

President Trump, I want you to succeed as President; that means making intelligent, rational choices; going to war with Russia over Syria is not one of those intelligent, rational choices. You will be positioning this country for an horrendous potential loss, premised, on yet another lie, with absolutely no tangible proof that the Syrians did this, and we can ill afford that happening right now.

Both the Syrian and Russian air forces have been put on red alert after US President Donald Trump made deranged tweets directly threatening not only Syria and Russia, but also Iran.

'Star Wars Architect' Reveals Means to Destroy Russia's New Superweapons

Announced by then-US President Ronald Reagan in 1983, SDI (Strategic Defense Initiative) stipulated the deployment of space-based systems aimed at destroying enemy intercontinental ballistic missiles.

Angelo Codevilla, one of the architects of Washington's now moth-balled Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI), has suggested that some SDI elements could help contain the latest Russian and Chinese weapons, including hypersonic ones, according to the news website Asia Times.

Codevilla believes that only two space-based systems are capable of countering sophisticated Russian and Chinese intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM). These include orbital optical sensors detecting ground launches and space-based lasers to destroy missiles.

Diasporas, Foreign Governments, and American Politics

In a March 2017 speech given by General of the Russian Army Valery Gerasimov, he observed that modern wars would likely be fought mainly by means other than martial weapons. He alluded to the concept that the primary purpose of war is to achieve a nation’s political objectives, and there are increasingly a host of other potential means, informational and sociological, to achieve such objectives without resorting to violent military conflict. Such an observation highlights that the traditional concept of national security in the twenty-first century is being severely tested along with the very concept of the nation-state itself as the global population continues to explode, cheap and available mass communication proliferates, and international borders are weakened by a range of factors including ease of transnational transport and shifting political allegiances.

Merton’s Message Resonates as Nuclear Holocaust Looms

The days of the fallout shelters with their supplies of long-lasting food to nurture us after the bombs had dropped and the school drills with children taking cover under their desks are long behind us. That was back during the height of the Cold War, in the late 1950s and early 1960s, when world Communism was still on the march and only the assurance of Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD) was believed to prevent a hot war between the United States and the Soviet Union. Then, in 1964, the great Stanley Kubrick movie, Dr. Strangelove, or How I Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love the Bomb, came out, and we began to come to our senses. We were shown graphically how, through a series of misunderstandings, the nuclear hair-trigger could be pulled and the world annihilated.
