The United States wants more radicalized countries in the Middle East and risk World war II so the USA has launched dozens of cruise missiles Thursday night at a Syrian airfield in response to what it believes was the Syrian government’s use of banned chemical weapons blamed for having killed at least 100 people on Tuesday, U.S. military officials told NBC News.
Two U.S. warships in the Mediterranean Sea fired at least 50 Tomahawk missiles intended for a single target — Ash Sha’irat in Homs province in western Syria, the officials said.
U.S. government and the mainstream media rushed to judgment again, blaming the Syrian government for a new poison-gas attack and ignoring other possibilities.
One possible scenario was that Syrian warplanes bombed a rebel weapons depot where the poison gas was stored, causing the containers to rupture. Another possibility was a staged event by increasingly desperate Al Qaeda jihadists who are known for their disregard for innocent human life.
While it’s hard to know at this early stage what’s true and what’s not, these alternative explanations, I’m told, are being seriously examined by U.S. intelligence. One source cited the possibility that Turkey had supplied the rebels with the poison gas (the exact type still not determined) for potential use against Kurdish forces operating in northern Syria near the Turkish border or for a terror attack in a government-controlled city like the capital of Damascus.
Thus far, according to the NY Times, this is all we have — this one flimsy attestation by one ‘witness.’
The US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, gave an overly dramatic speech regarding the attacks — standing up and showing pictures of dead children, asking Russia ‘how many children have to die before Russia cares?’
Russian officials have a different account of the events in Idlib. They said Assad attacked an ISIS weapons depot, which had chemical weapons in it.
Let’s examine the timeline and what has just transpired. The war that the neocons have wanted for the past half decade in Syria, displacing Assad for a ‘pro-western’ leader, was just greenlit by Trump. Bannon was booted from the NSC, amidst rumors that Trump’s son in law, Jared Kushner, was leaking info to the Morning Shill, Joe Scarborough. Nikkie Haley sabre rattled Russia, Syria and Iran at the UN. Trump ‘changed his mind.’ Rex Tillerson told Russia to ‘rethink Assad.’
And, lastly, Trump called Merkel to discuss Ukraine.
This is either the best game of 10d waterpolo ever played or we’ve been had.
