>The U.S. military launched approximately 50 cruise missiles at a Syrian military airfield late on Thursday, in the first direct American assault on the government of President Bashar al-Assad since that country’s civil war began six years ago.

>The operation, which the Trump administration authorized in retaliation for a chemical attack killing scores of civilians this week, dramatically expands U.S. military involvement in Syria and exposes the United States to heightened risk of direct confrontation with Russia and Iran, both backing Assad in his attempt to crush his opposition.

>President Trump said the strike was in the “vital national security interest” of the United States and called on “all civilized nations to join us in seeking to end the slaughter and bloodshed in Syria. And also to end terrorism of all kinds and all types.”

>“We ask for God’s wisdom as we face the challenge of our very troubled world,” he continued. “We pray for the lives of the wounded and for the souls of those who have passed and we hope that as long as America stands for justice then peace and harmony will in the end prevail.”

>The missiles were launched from two Navy destroyers — the USS Ross and USS Porter — in the eastern Mediterranean. They struck an airbase called Shayrat in Homs province, which is the site from which the planes that conducted the chemical attack in Idlib are believed to have originated. The targets included the runway as well as aircraft, hangars and fuel.

The Russians were warned 24 hours ahead of the strike and pulled out from the base. The Russians warned assad who drew down troops to minimum personnel, and there were almost no casualties.

Syrian army claims only 20 missiles struck the base, and in the same location. Whether the 50-100 claim is a lie, or whether some got lost in transit, is unknown.

This was likely a saber rattle to end all saber rattles.

Oh also to counter the yellow lie at the start, there have been several other strikes on assads forced by USA, ranging from drone strikes to bombings. A notable event is a strike on his forces preceding a FSA incursion in september.

>The United States is looking into whether Russia participated in the Syrian chemical weapons attack that provoked President Donald Trump's airstrikes against the Assad government, a revelation that could have dramatic implications for relations between Washington and Moscow.

>On Friday, senior U.S. military officials said a drone belonging to either Russia or Syria was seen hovering over the site of the chemical weapons attack after the assault earlier this week. Russia is one of Syria's most important patrons and has long resisted U.S. efforts to push President Bashar Assad from power.

>The results show that the target hits were accurate and that the Tomahawks have been used effectively against quality targets. Although 58 missiles hit the base, it seems that the overall damage to the base is limited because the warhead of the Tomahawk is not considered large and weighs about 450 kg.

>jets take off from the airbase a day after the airstrike
>people are inspecting the base without wearing any protective equipment
>USA aggressively attacks a sovereign country because of information posted in social nets


>There were reports in 2014 that we had removed all the chemical weapons from Syria. But then U.S. government officials, among others, have said more recently that it wasn’t true — Assad still had chemical weapons in his possession. Could you explain why the initial accounts were wrong?
>First of all, prior to the civil war, it was well known that Syria had a large, clandestine chemical-weapons arsenal. They had not joined the chemical-weapons convention, which prohibits the possession, manufacture, and use of chemical weapons. There were a number of small-scale incidents of chemical-weapons use — beginning in 2012, in various parts of Syria — that were starting to raise suspicions that Assad was using his arsenal against the rebels. And then there was the massive sarin-gas attack on the outskirts of Damascus in 2013.
>That led, of course, to the threat of cruise-missile strikes on a more massive scale by Barack Obama. His threat forced the hands of the Russians, who told Assad, “Look, the only way that we can avoid U.S. military strikes is if you agree to hand over your chemical-weapons arsenal” — which is what they did. So 1,300 tons of chemical weapons — sarin, mustard gas, and all the precursor chemicals — were verifiably removed.

>We have to put blame where blame belongs, which is not with the agreement that got 1,300 tons of chemical weapons out of Syria. It’s with the Kremlin, which failed to enforce that agreement with its client government.

Simply put, because US dindo nuffin, let's blame Russia for that.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says ‘there is no change’ in U.S. stance on Syria after missile strike

>There’s “no change” in the United States’ military stance on Syria following Thursday’s retaliatory strikes against the Bashar Assad regime, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in a new interview.

>Rather, the launching of 59 cruise missiles on Shayrat Air Base — believed to be the origin of Syria’s lethal attack against its own citizens — was “related solely to the most recent horrific use of chemical weapons against women, children, and as the President said, even small babies,” Tillerson told ABC’s “This Week” in an interview airing Sunday.

>“The strike was a message to Bashar al-Assad that your multiple violations of your agreements at the UN, your agreements under the chemical weapons charter back in 2013 — that those would not go without a response in the future.”

Is there any indication that an attempt was made to shoot down the Tomahawks?
>> No. 116228 ID: d4c8ee
TLAMs are fairly vulnerable, without getting into secret squirrel shit they fly at around 475 knots in a non-evasive flightpath and could be shot down by working air defense systems. However Syria has basically been stripping their air defense units of men and material for their other branches, same as with their navy. And as the BDA shows, that apparently didn't happen.

It was declared that S-300 air defence in airbases were disengageв as an effort to enforce the agreement for shared airspace between involved parties. Or some different reason, strategic or otherwize.


>Russian S-300 and S-400 missiles, located primarily around Khmeimim air base in western Syria, have a shorter range than the S-200 but have more-advanced radar systems and fly considerably faster than their older counterparts used by Syrian forces. The S-300 has a range of roughly 90 miles and could also be used to target incoming U.S. cruise missiles.

Crater runways, take out the pilot housing and C3I centers, level Assad's palace with a few JDAMs, instead of giving advance warning before tossing a handful of TLAMs at a airfield which resumes dropping chemical bombs on civilians within 24 hours.

Tillerson Says Syria’s Assad Regime Is Coming to an End

>U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Tuesday it is clear President Bashar al-Assad’s government in Syria won’t be in power much longer, as foreign ministers from the Group of Seven leading industrialized nations chose not to impose new sanctions on the regime.

>It has also increased its criticism of Russia, the Syrian regime’s main backers. Mr. Tillerson issued a stern warning as he headed from the meeting to Moscow for high-level talks.

No. This is a classic American logic "if you don't support us, you support Stalin, or Hitler, or maybe Islam, honestly we don't even care because it is all the same shit".

>Spain just arrested the Russian hacker Pyotr Levashov and his wife says it's because he was involved with the election hacking.
Hardly a news. Basically every NATO country has somehow found a "proof" of "russian hacking", and no country outside even attempted to believe it is somewhat plausible. But you see, the point is, "if you don't support us, ...".

Spicer makes a good point.
>Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, set off an intense backlash on Tuesday when he suggested that President Bashar al-Assad of Syria was worse than Hitler and said incorrectly that Hitler had not used chemical weapons during World War II or against his own people.

>Mr. Spicer was attempting to lend gravity to the actions of Mr. Assad, who United States officials believe used sarin gas, a lethal chemical weapon, in an attack on a rebel-held area of Idlib Province last week that killed dozens.

>Hitler oversaw a network of extermination camps where gas chambers were used to kill millions of Jews and others deemed to be harmful to the German state.

>“We didn’t use chemical weapons in World War II. You know, you had someone as despicable as Hitler who didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons,” Mr. Spicer said.

>He continued, “So you have to, if you are Russia, ask yourself: Is this a country and a regime that you want to align yourself with?”

>You know, you had someone as despicable as Hitler who didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons
It is funny how hypocritical United States officials make generous use of Godwin's law to excuse their false flag attacks - use it towards the nation that suffered the worst from Hitler himself. Not only they deny this nation it's historical identity and a right to exist (regularly), they also accuse it of the worst crimes performed against it, and therefore advocate the regime that is known for worst crimes against humanity.

This is a most despicable behaviour explained by most irrelevant assumptions, based on most falsified facts. In short, this is the essence of Hitlerism itself.

D.C.'s war madness

>The past week has been an immensely clarifying — and profoundly demoralizing — one in American politics. It has demonstrated beyond a shadow of a doubt that the country's foreign policy establishment, along with its leading center-right and center-left politicians and pundits, are hopelessly, perhaps irredeemably, deluded about the role of the United States in the world.

>From the start of the 2016 Republican primaries on down through Donald Trump's surprise electoral college victory, the transition, and the opening months of his administration, members of this foreign policy establishment and these leading politicians and pundits have been united in expressing dismay and alarm about Trump's lack of temperamental and intellectual fitness to serve as commander-in-chief. Yet the moment Trump gave the order to launch 59 Tomahawk missiles at a Syrian airbase used in a chemical weapons attack a few days earlier, all was forgotten and forgiven. Finally Trump became president! Finally he put Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in his place! Finally the U.S. showed it had moved beyond former President Barack Obama's reluctance to use military force!

Gabbard: ‘We need to learn from Iraq’

>Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) has a message for the liberals attacking her criticism of President Trump’s missile strike on Syria, warning that a rush to aggression risks repeating the same mistakes that led the United States into the Iraq War.

>“We need to learn from Iraq and Libya — wars that were propagated as necessary to relieve human suffering, but actually increased human suffering many times over,” she said in an email to The Hill.

>Gabbard, a major in the Hawaii Army National Guard who served two tours in Iraq, has been highly critical of Trump’s decision last Thursday to launch 59 missiles at a Syrian airfield in response to a deadly chemical attack that killed scores of civilians, including children, in a western Syrian town days before.

Prominent Democrats Call For Anti-War Congresswoman To Be Ousted From Office

>Top Democrats are not pleased that Hawaii Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard pushed the U.S. to collect and release evidence from the scene of the chemical attack in Syria.

>Gabbard visited Syria and met with President Bashar al-Assad in January and has been consistently cautious about American involvement in the Middle Eastern country. The Hawaii congresswoman said in a statement that the airstrikes on Syria were “short-sighted and will lead to more dead civilians, more refugees, the strengthening of al-Qaida and other terrorists, and a possible nuclear war between the United States and Russia.”

>She also said she has not seen enough evidence that Assad was behind the chemical attack that led to the death of dozens of civilians. Gabbard said an investigation was necessary before responding, and that “if President Assad is found to be responsible after an independent investigation for these horrific chemical weapons attacks, I’ll be the first one to call for his prosecution and execution by the International Criminal Court.” U.S. officials have maintained Syria was responsible for the attack as radar showed Syrian warplanes in the area during the incident.

>The president, speaking by phone Tuesday, called Syrian President Bashar al-Assad a “butcher” and a “barbarian” for using sarin gas on his own people, but said last week’s successful missile strike was not the start of a campaign to oust the dictator.

>White House press secretary Sean Spicer apologized Tuesday after saying Adolf Hitler "didn't even sink to using chemical weapons" during World War II in an effort to shame Russia's alliance with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his use of chemical weapons.
>The comment was immediately decried and after a series of attempts to clear up his words, Spicer apologized in an exclusive interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer.
>"I was obviously trying to make a point about the heinous acts that Assad had made against his own people last week, using chemical weapons and gas. Frankly, I mistakenly made an inappropriate and insensitive reference to the Holocaust, for which there is no comparison," Spicer said. "And for that I apologize. It was a mistake to do that."

It is very generous of US secretaries to react in such manner on their f-ups towards their own historical heritage, if only the same could be said about most of other nations too.

Of course not. Contrary to many promises of new president, American strategy remains absolutely unchanged through these years - they are trying to gain as much land as possible, using various local "rebels" and topple the "regime", and while government remains in place, they swap their allies every now and then.

This time, however, Russian MOD is demanding responsibility, because US was openly helping out ISIS against government forces - and not the first time, of course. The situation is pretty desperate, and US still has much less territory, fewer and fewer chances to split the country into areas of influence, and not a single opportunity to do away with Assad. Holy shit, how did they end up in this situation.

Ah yes, the same Russian MOD that said they were bombing ISIS while bombing everybody but ISIS.

US signals involvement in Syria could escalate

>Robert Ford, a former U.S. ambassador to Syria, said there is real danger to the U.S. as tensions flare.

>Syrian President Bashar Assad has vowed to recapture all Syrian territory lost during the nation’s civil war, Ford noted in an email.

>“There is, therefore, a real risk of escalation, especially if, unlike in western Syria, the Americans insist on backing up their Syrian allies on the ground and there is no deal with Assad,” he said.
>“The coalition’s mission is to defeat ISIS in Iraq and Syria,” the military reiterated in its statement after Sunday’s jet downing. “The coalition does not seek to fight Syrian regime, Russian or pro-regime forces partnered with them, but will not hesitate to defend coalition or partner forces from any threat.”

>U.S. and Syrian forces largely had stayed out of each other’s way before, because the United States operated mostly in eastern Syria and the government forces mostly in western Syria.

>But since the fall of Aleppo, pro-Assad forces have been moving further east, bringing them into closer proximity with the U.S. forces and upping the potential for confrontation, said Ford, a senior fellow at the Middle East Institute and professor at Yale.

So Assad wants all of Syria back under his control, and Russia will back him up in that. America, meanwhile, will defend our allied forces, who control swathes of land in Syria, from attack by anyone, including Assad's forces. How is this not an impasse pitting America against Russia militarily, in the long run?

That was the title of the article when I posted it, as evidenced by its url. Literally that entire post was copied and pasted from the article.

It's a good thing the situation isn't really that dire, though.

Russia has so much trouble finding footage of them bombing Islamic terrorists, that they need to fake it.
>In part three of Oliver Stone’s “The Putin Interviews”, the Russian president shows the director a video on a cell phone, showing what he calls “how our air force operates,” with ISIS fighters running away “with weapons.” However, this video does not show Russian aircrafts firing at ISIS fighters in Syria. Putin is actually showing an old video of a U.S. Apache helicopter firing at Taliban fighters in Afghanistan. The Conflict Intelligence Team (CIT) open source collective compared the two clips, showing that they were identical, but set to a different audio track.

>The overlaid audio, as shared on Noodle Remover News by Alexey Kovalev, is from a conversation between two Ukrainian pilots carrying out a mission over the Donbas in May 2014.

>With the content from U.S. and Ukrainian videos mashed and combined, the event Putin describes to Oliver Stone is not what is depicted in the video he presents as evidence. The falsified video Putin watched can be seen below, uploaded on March 9, 2016, by a YouTube user named “Edelveis Ararat.”

>This is far from the first time that Russia has misrepresented its fight with ISIS in Syria. As seen in Atlantic Council’s report “Distract, Deceive, Destroy”, Russia often gave incorrect locations for its airstrikes in Syria, falsely claiming that they were targeting ISIS-controlled areas. For example, what was supposedly an ISIS-controlled oil storage facility in Al-Thawrah, Syria was actually a grain storage facility 150 kilometers away, near Surman.

To Syria and Back
Josh Walker Fought Against ISIS. He Almost Got Killed. Now He’s Charged With Terrorism.

>It was a quiet night until the bombs began crashing out of the sky. Only a few minutes earlier, on the roof of a gray, single-story building not far from the city of Manbij in northern Syria, Josh Walker had been peacefully sleeping. Now the walls were collapsing beneath him, he was surrounded by fire, and his friends were dead.

  Oh what is this? What kind of gun is this? Did those terrorists ran out of old good AKs suddenly?

Face it, the ISIS is practically destroyed in Syria and is forced back to their internet wars and recruiting through NATO media.

And I mean it sure is pretty interesting that the Nazis autistically kept detailed records for the 9 million or so people they killed over 4 years in industrial death camps during the Holocaust, but for this alleged second holocaust of Russians (currently at elventy billion dead, since Russia is the most victimized country ever) there's no records at all.

And similarly, it sure is interesting how Nazi propaganda hits all the same "degenerate liberals!" "gays should be killed!" "jews are evil!" "woman's place is in the home" talking points that the Soviet government supported.

And of course one wonders if how Germany was retreating constantly after the Battle of Moscow, how they managed to "capture" new vehicles like T-34-85s or IS-2s.

Not the second, but the first. It is expectable that Nazi Alliance puppets can not keep any "records" on Russian casualties since they don't treat them as human.

>Nazi propaganda
Nazi propaganda has clear and distinct roots in British and American ideologies of imperialism, colonialism, sectarian movements and white supremacy. Even after almost century after the war, they can't entirely get rid of those old habits.

>clearly this means AQI is supported by America
>Commercial Agreement
Commercial agreement is a private affair, it exchanges money for goods. Business and nothing personal. "Support" means that the rifles, the information, the financial aid - everything was "accidentally" gifted to Al Quaeda and other moderate terrorists by "careless" NATO generals in exchange of fighting Syrian state.

Remind us again who created the Protocols of the Elders of Zion? Or is antisemitism a Traditional Russian Value?

As to imperialism and colonialism, one needs only to look at Tsarist records of the colonization of Siberia and Alaska to find typical colonial behavior that continued well into the Soviet period. For example the Soviet government continued to close and level native villages and separate children from their families well into the 1980s because they were "barbarians" and needed to become proper socialist slaves.

World used to know many variations of colonialism, but Anglo-Saxon colonialism proves to be most vicious and long-standing.

>Protocols of the Elders of Zion
>is antisemitism a Traditional
>colonization of Siberia and Alaska
I would give some time to that for my own curiosity's sake, but I suppose I don't need to. Recent events in Syria still illustrate more than enough. Six years of unrelenting bombardment and support of satanic cults (Muslims only in their name) left the country in ruin and provoked mass migrations, atrocities, civil unrest and breakup of international relations. In comparison, one year of combined areal assault and effort on the ground resulted in destruction of most capable forces of ISIL and inevitable end of terrorist cause.

It has come to the point where some NATO members suggest that Turkey should be kicked from the alliance. 16 years of "War on Terror" left the world with more terrorists then ever and gave birth to terrorist "state". If I was a historian from Cold War period, I would simply assume that it's main purpose of it is either sabotaged by all parties involved, or it was designed to be a failure since the beginning.
