US MILITARY PREPARING FOR "OPTIONS" IN SYRIA | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


US MILITARY PREPARING FOR "OPTIONS" IN SYRIA

Events are moving rapidly in Syria as Russian jets pound insurgent positions in Idlib Province and as the Syrian Army readies an imminent ground invasion which Damascus has described as coming in a "phased" approach.

The White House responded to Syria and its allies initiating the bombing campaign by saying the US would respond “swiftly and vigorously” should chemical weapons be used, and a day ago claimed there's “lots of evidence” chemical weapons are being prepared by the Syrian forces, claiming to have intelligence of such activities.

And now America's top general has confirmed the Pentagon is drawing up military options to attack Syria and is in close discussion with the White House over the plans. Marine General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told reporters on Saturday during a trip to India, according to Reuters:

...he was involved in “routine dialogue” with the White House about military options should Syria ignore U.S. warnings against using chemical weapons in an expected assault on the enclave of Idlib.

Trump has previously bombed Syria twice after allegations that Assad had ordered a chemical weapons attack — in April 2017 and April 2018 — the former was in response to a claimed sarin attack on Idlib.

White House officials have vowed to hold Assad responsible for any chemical attack allegations that emerge.

YouTube has shut down all Syrian government channels today.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That last bit, about YouTube's shutting down all Syrian government channels as of today's date, is a very distressing sign that things are about to go from bad to worse, and very, very rapidly here.
