[Illegitimate POTUS] Trump Orders [illegal] Military Strikes On Syria  

Trump Orders Military Strikes On Syria: 3 Waves Of Airstrikes Launched

  • Around 9pm ET on Friday, April 13, the US, UK and France launched attack on Syrian regime targets

  • Strikes targeted regime bases and chemical weapon production facilities in Damascus and Homs

  • The Strikes consisted of 3 waves of attacks and are now complete

  • Russia was not pre-notified about tonight's "kinetic activity"

  • Double the number of weapons was used compared to last year's Syria strike, when 59 Tomahawk missiles were launched.

  • Regime and Russia condemn what they call a 'flagrant violation', but have not retaliated so far.

Update 7:  Russia responds. Here is the full statement posted by Russia's ambassador to the US, Anataoly Antonov:

The worst apprehensions have come true. Our warnings have been left unheard.

A pre-designed scenario is being implemented. Again, we are being threatened. We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences.

All responsibility for them rests with Washington, London and Paris.

Insulting the President of Russia is unacceptable and inadmissible.

The U.S. – the possessor of the biggest arsenal of chemical weapons – has no moral right to blame other countries.

Update 6: The White House has released the list of US demands from Assad regime

  • Dismantle the chemical weapons program

  • Declare the weapons

  • Destroy the stockpile

  • Allow OPCW fact-finding mission

  • Comply with the de-escalation zone

* * *

Update 5: Video showing the moment a tomahawk missile hits a research facility in Syria:

Update 4:  Joint Chiefs chairman Dunford said that while the strikes sought to minimize risk of Russian casualties, the US did not pre-notify Russia of the Syria strikes; separately Mattis said that double the number of weapons used compared to last year's Syria strike - when 59 Tomahawk missiles were launched.

More from Dunford:

  • "We did have some surface-to-air missile activity from the Syrian regime."

  • "The US did not pre-notify Russian forces in Syria about tonight's kinetic activity."

  • "Russia was alerted of Syria strikes through "deconfliction" line in Qatar"

  • "U.S. forces in Syria did make adjustments to force protection levels ahead of the combined air operations against the Syrian regime."

  • "This wave of airstrikes is over. More information will follow in the morning."

  • "Manned aircraft involved in Syria operation"

  • "Pentagon will brief tomorrow will more strike details"

And Mattis:

  • "We used a little over double the number of weapons this year than we used last year...We were very precise and proportionate, but at the same time, it was a heavy strike."

  • "I am confident the Syrian regime conducted a chemical attack on innocent people."

  • "Right now we have no more attacks planned"

* * *

Update 3: at 10PM ET, Defense Secretary Mattis and Joseph Dunford, the Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff provided the Pentagon's update, repeating that U.S., British and and French forces struck Syrias chemical weapons infrastructure tonight. Mattis said that "Clearly, the Assad regime did not get the message last year. This time, our allies and we have struck harder."

Mattis adds that "I want to emphasize these strikes are directed at the Syrian regime. In conducting these strikes, we have gone to great lengths to avoid civilian and foreign casualties."

Then, Dunford said that the first target was a Syrian research facility, and adds that the US selected targets that would minimize risk to innocent civilians. He adds that attacks on multiple sites of Syria chemical weapons infrastructure "inflicted maximum damage."

In total, Targets were specially associated with the Syrian regime's CW program. These included:

  • Scientific research center in the greater #Damascus area.

  • Chemical weapons storage facility west of #Homs.

  • Chemical weapons equipment storage facility and command post west of #Homs.

The third target, which was in the vicinity of the second target, contained both the chemical weapons equipment storage facility and an important command post."

Meanwhile, the White House said that the US is confident the Syrian regime was behind the chemical weapons attack, based on:

  • media sources

  • victims’ symptoms

  • videos

  • “reliable information indicating coordination between Syrian military officials before the attack.”

* * *

Update 2: Witnesses are reporting explosions heard in Damascus, including residential areas, although the first wave of US, UK and French attacks is allegedly targeting the following:

  • Republican Guard headquarters

  • Military airbases

  • Chemical weapon production sites

Meanwhile, Reuters adds that a total of three scientific research centers struck in the attack.

According to media reports in addition to American ships, Tomahawk missiles and aircraft - including B-1 bombers, leading the attacks, four British Tornado GR4s have targeted a military facility in Homs with Storm Shadow missiles.

While unconfirmed, Syria state TV claims that it shot down 13 missiles near Damascus.

More details:

Pentagon: There will be a press briefing at 10 p.m. EDT, tonight, April 13, in the Pentagon Briefing Room on operations in Syria.

*  *  *

Update 1: President Trump has now confirmed that in a combined operation with France and UK, a military strike is now under way against Syria...

“A short time ago, I ordered the United States Armed Forces to launch precision strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapons capabilities of Syrian dictator, Bashar al-Assad.”

“This massacre was a significant escalation in a pattern of chemical weapons use by that very terrible regime.”

“These are not the actions of a man; they are crimes of a monster instead.”

“The combined American, British, and French response to these atrocities will integrate all instruments of our national power, military, economic, and diplomatic.”

“We are prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents.”

“In 2013, President Putin and his government promised the world that they would guarantee the elimination of Syria’s chemical weapons.”

“Assad’s recent attack and today’s response are the direct result of Russia’s failure to keep that promise. Russia must decide if it will continue down this dark path or if it will join with civilized nations as a force for stability and peace.”

“The United States will be a partner and a friend, but the fate of the region lies in the hands of its own people.”

“Tonight, I ask all Americans to say a prayer for our noble warriors and our allies as they carry out their missions. We pray that God will bring comfort to those suffering in Syria.”

Theresa May has commented:







Mr. Trump has threatened military action against Syria for days as retaliation for a suspected chemical weapons attack by the forces of President Bashar al-Assad on a Damascus suburb last week.

*  *   *

With two Tomahawk-capable destroyers in The Mediterranean Sea, and following "highly confident" intel that Syria launched the chemical attack, NYTimes reports that President Trump is expected to make a statement about Syria on Friday evening at the White House, an administration official said.

Additionally, Gateway Pundit's Josh Caplan reports that Vice President Mike Pence was seen "'rushing back" to his hotel in Peru amid speculation about possible U.S. military action in Syria.

FOX News reports that President Trump has approved military strikes on Syria and is set to announce them within 30 minutes.

Watch Live:

The Donald Cook and The Winston Churchill are capable of carrying up to 150 Tomahawk missiles between them (last April Trump fired 59 Tomahawks into Syria).

Russia Has "Irrefutable Evidence" UK Staged Syrian Chemical Attack
by Tyler Durden 04/13/2018

As the blame game over the alleged chemical attack in Syria escalates ahead of what is expected to be an imminent, if contained, air strike campaign by the US, UK and/or France against Syria, on Friday morning, Russia's foreign minister Sergey Lavrov said Moscow had "irrefutable evidence" that the attack - which allegedly killed more than 40 people in an April 7 chemical weapons strike on the former rebel outpost of Douma  -was staged with the help of a foreign secret service.
"We have irrefutable evidence that this was another staged event, and that the secret services of a certain state that is now at the forefront of a Russophobic campaign was involved in this staged event," he said during a press conference according to AFP.
Speculation that said "certain state" was the UK was confirmed shortly after, when Russia's defense ministry alleged that Britain was involved in the suspected chemical attack. According to defense ministry spokesman, Major General Igor Konashenkov, the Kremlin has evidence that Britain was behind the attack.
Quoted by Reuters, he said: "We have... evidence that proves Britain was directly involved in organising this provocation."
As RT further adds, the Russian Defense Ministry presented what it says is "proof that the reported chemical weapons attack in Syria was staged."

Russia Says Syrian Forces Intercepted 71 Of 103 Launched Missiles

Russia Says Syrian Forces Intercepted 71 Of 103 Launched Missiles, Announces Possible S-300 Systems Deliveries To Syria
SYRIA 14.04.2018
The US, the UK and France launched 103 missiles on Syria last night, 71 of them were shot down by Syrian forces, Head of the Russian General Staff Main Operations Department Sergey Rudskoy announced during a short press briefing on April 14.
“Syria’s means of air defense: S-125, S-200 air defense systems, [as well as] Buk and Kvadrat units were used in the repelling the missile strike,” the Russian Defense Ministry said.
Rudskoy added that no missiles had entered into the zone of responsibility of the Russian Air Defense Forces and Russian air defense system had not responded to the attack.
He described the US strikes on Syria as a response to the recent achievements of the Syrian Arab Army in restoring Syrian territorial integrity and combating the terrorism.
As a resulf of the event, Russia will consider S-300 air defense systems deliveries to Syria and “other countries.”
The Russian Defense Ministry’s press briefing:

US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis described the 2018 strikes on Syria as “harder” than those in 2017.
“Right now this is a one time shot and I believe it sent a very strong message,” Mattis said during a press briefing in the Pentagon.
He added that the US may consider further attacks against the government of Bashar Assad “should he decide to use more chemical weapons in the future.”
SF recalls that on April 12 the Defense Secretary officially said that there had been no evidence confirming that the Assad government was behind the April 7 Douma incident.
Since then, no inveistigation has been conducted by the US and OPCW inspectors have not visited Douma.
Seems OPCW inspectors were sent to Syria on 13th April probably so the Syrians would lower their guard while the inspectors were there.

Syria - Manipulated Videos Fail To Launch World War III - Updated

Moon of Alabama MoA.
April 13, 2018 [Update April 14, 5:00 UCT]

Last night the U.S., UK and France launched a symbolic attack on Syria. It was not intended to hurt the Syrian government, its people or its allies. It did not hit any of Syria's allies. So far there is no report of anyone being killed or wounded.
This was a one-off:
Mattis [...] said the assault was a “one-time shot,” so long as Assad does not repeat his use of chemical weapons.
The only purpose of the attack was to do 'something' and to somewhat calm down the warmongers within those three 'western' countries. It was probably insufficient for that.
As we wrote yesterday in the piece below. World War III had been called off.
A report from an observer on the ground in Syria:
Elijah J. Magnier @ejmalrai - 4:22 UTC - 14 Apr 2018
#USA #France #UK: 3 countries to bomb 3 #Syria/n objectives in #Homs #Damascus? A centre of research, a Control & command and an ammunition warehouse? And before the OPCW investigation expected today?
A say In ME: Huge mountains moving to give a birth to a small mouse!
-No "Political hits: (Presidential Palace or gov or security HQ)
No #Iranian objectives hits
No #Hezbollah objectives hit
No Syrian Army key capabilities hit.#
And of course no #Russian deployment w/ #SAA hit
#USA looks weaker than ever with this "strike".
The giants trio hit (#USA #UK #France) fired from US base in #Qatar is celebrated in #Damascus government controlled area with #Russian #Iranian #Syrian and #Hezbollah flags, dancing and mocking @realRonaldTrump's strike
This is the 1st time in history where a capital, #Damascus, is hit by foreign power and people celebrate it in the street few hours later, challenging the attackers and expressing their solidarity with the government by dancing in the street: #USA #UK #France boosted #Assad today
#USA #UK #France targeted empty objectives in #Syria since the entire #SAA was dislocated. @realDonaldTrump wanted to save his image: the Syria people's reaction (1000s in the street expressing solidarity with Assad) to the hit is seriously damaging him.
To limit the attack to the absolute minimum was a wise decision by U.S. President Donald Trump. The people who had faked the 'chemical attack' in Douma on April 7 wanted to pull the U.S. into a wider war with Syria and Russia. They failed. Russia's threat of retaliation for any attack was strong enough to deter the U.S. military. Secretary of Defense Mattis saved the situation when he publicly doubted the evidence and held Trump back from a spontaneous 'revenge' response. Netanyahoo will be furious and the neocons will now try to kick Mattis out.
[End-Update - the original post, written before the attack, follows below]
clothcapclothcap on April 14th, 2018 03:03 pm (UTC)
...follows below/


It seems to me that World War III has been called off - for now. Sanity prevailed over a stampede of warmongering which erupted after dubious but well timed claims of a 'chemical attack' in Syria.
Secretary of Defense Mattis let know of his doubts about the alleged 'chemical attack' in Douma which the 'rebels' attributed to the Syrian government. This changed the tone of Donald Trump's tweets and the international conversations on the issue. Several NATO countries, including Germany and Canada, said they would not take part in any threatened 'revenge' operation.
Today the Russian Defense Ministry accused Britain of having directed the staged attack:
Russian Defense Ministry spokesman, Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov, released statements by medics from Douma’s hospital who said a group of people toting video cameras entered the hospital, shouting that its patients were struck with chemical weapons and causing panic. The medics said none of the patients were hurt by chemicals.
Here are videos of that hospital scenes from the 'rebel' propaganda outlets. The 'treatment' by the 'rebels', dousing with water and administering some asthma spray, is unprofessional and many of the 'patients' seem to have no real problem. It is theater. The real medical personal is seen in the background working on a real patient.
The people in the video scenes were "rent-a-mob" actors which the Russians say they have found. They also found the medics and videotaped their statements. They Russian government claims to know the main culprit:
"Today, the Russian defense ministry has other evidence proving the United Kingdom’s direct involvement in the organization of this provocation in Eastern Ghouta," [Igor Konashenkov, the defense ministry’s spokesman] said.
An OPCW technical team has arrived in Damascus. It will investigate the scene and talk to the witnesses.
Cause of the recent panic were a few videos by several propaganda outlets associated with Takfiri 'rebels' in Ghouta. These videos immediately looked staged to me. Yes, they showed dead people - mainly children - in a basement or apartment. But the bodies were not in the place where they had died and were probably not, as was claimed, killed by chemical weapons.
In the videos some 20 dead children and a few women lie on the floor as if they were thrown in there. The scene was obviously manipulated several times. The various videos show the bodies in different positions. They have been moved around for presentation. Later videos show, for example, a baby in diapers on top of two older kids. In an earlier video that baby is not there.
The 'rebel' claim that the people were killed by chlorine and a nerve agent: "Look, the dead have foam at their mouth." (Foam at the mouth is wrongly assumed to be a sure symptom of exposure to a nerve agent.)
Yes, they have foam at their mouth. But it seems to be shaving foam and/or some white gel, not a human secretion. We have seen this trick before.
Compare for example this video from the scene uploaded by فادي عبد الله on Apr 7, 2018 at 20:49:26 UTC with this video from the same scene by Yaser AlDoumani2 uploaded on Apr 7, 2018 at 22:43:16 UTC.

Russia Insider BREAKING: US Bombs Damascus, Syrians Firing Back, First Civilian Casualties

Marko Marjanović 14 April 2018
Immensely powerful blasts rocking Damascus. At least two residential areas reportedly hit.
At least 4 reported dead in one of the strikes. Syrian Russian-made Pantsir-S1 air defenses firing back. Witnesses say Damascus airport completely destroyed.
UK and France also part of the attack.
Reportedly the attack involved 120 cruise missiles (twice as much as the 2017 attack) launched at three sites and is now over.
Russians and Syrians say many of the missiles were intercepted.
This is taking place as ISIS attempts another attack from their pocket in southern Damascus suburbs:
The ISIS forces in Yarmouk albeit relatively few (a couple of thousand) managed a successful offensive last month where they took some additional neighborhoods while the Syrian army was distracted fighting Islamist rebels of a different stripe in eastern Ghouta to the east of Damascus.

The organization also called on the UN Security Council to exert maximum efforts to prevent an escalation of the conflict in Syria. According to the CSTO, the US-led missile strikes on Syria were carried out “violating fundamental principles and norms of international law, the UN Charter and without the sanction of the UN Security Council.”

He stressed that the West’s only justification for its strikes against Syria are reports from the media and social media networks. Lavrov also said that in a phone conversation this week with Russian President Vladimir Putin, his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron refused to reveal what France says is “irrefutable evidence” of the Syrian government’s involvement in the alleged use of chemical weapons in Douma. The French leader said that the data is secret, adding that “it’s not our secret,” RIA Novosti quoted Lavrov as saying.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has welcomed the US-led forces strikes on Syria, saying that the joint operation by the US, UK, and France was appropriate and it sent the Syrian government “the message that its massacres wouldn’t be left unanswered.” Erdogan said that “the innocent Syrian people should have been defended long ago.” Addressing his ruling AK Party supporters in Istanbul, Erdogan said that Damascus recently began a disproportionate attack on the opposition, using “not only chemical weapons,” and added that conventional weapons there “kill many times more people than chemical,” RIA Novosti reported. He called for a united position against both “the regime and Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS)” in Syria. Erdogan also stressed that Ankara supports a reduction of the escalation between Russia and the US in the Syrian crisis.

SyrPer April 14th, 2018
Ziad Fadel
In the early hours of April 14, 2018, at specifically 3:55 a.m., the United States, Britain and France, launched a misguided campaign of noise and fire against the government and people of Syria. The targets were already known by the Syrian government since the Russians had negotiated them with Secretary of Defense, James “Mad Dog” Mattis. Since everybody knew Trump was going to do something, sometime, some way, all precautions were taken to protect lives and materiel. Syria’s most advanced jets were stored in fortified hangars or flown to bases such as Humaymeem where Russian personnel are stationed.
The attack involved two U.S. cruise missile carrying destroyers in the Red Sea; tactical aircraft flying from one aircraft carrier in the Mediterranean; and several B-1 bombers traced to new runways in American-occupied Al-Tanf near the Jordanian-Iraqi borders. The British fllew a wing of Tornado bombers carrying cruise missiles out of Akritiri Airbase in Cyprus while the French used their Mirages and Rafal bombers based in Jordan.
The combined forces used 110 cruise missiles 71 of which were either intercepted and destroyed by Syria’s Pantsir air defense systems or were electronically toppled by a force which will remain unmentioned. Only 39 cruise missiles reached any target, many of them falling harmlessly in the Syrian Desert.
The only targets hit were a scientific research facility in Barza which contained classrooms and laboratories. All material had been removed so that the Americans could claim falsely that they had destroyed a CW-related institution. Another building which the Americans were allowed to destroy was a military warehouse in Homs, at Misyaaf, which the Americans could not hit because all the missiles aimed at that target were electronically toppled. As the cruise missiles were being deflected, they exploded on the ground injuring 3 civilians. The NATO allies also fired 12 missiles at the Al-Dhumayr AB east of Damascus. Russian news says all 12 were downed by Soviet-era air defense systems.
Of the 110 cruise missiles fired, 14 of them were American Tomahawks. Most of the others were British and Fench. None of the British or French missiles hit any target. Complete failure and a lesson to the allies of the U.S.
An helicopter airbase near the Lebanese border was also struck. However, because the attack took place in the early hours, nobody was at the base and, conveniently, no aircraft were to be found.
One thing is absolutely certain: this was a training exercise to see how well NATO weapons would work. The enemy here, Syria and Russia, was in on the planning and knew ahead of time what the attacking force was going to do. There was high drama, what with Trump calling Dr. Assad an “animal”. There was puffing with Trump tweeting about his “new, smart” missiles in response to a Russian diplomat claiming his country would knock down all attacking missiles. But, of course, Trump fancies himself a great negotiator and managed to negotiate the rules of this engagement.
The first rule was that the Russians have to convince Dr. Assad that his country was going to be hit, but not hard. The second rule was that Dr. Assad could use all air defense assets at his disposal. The third rule of this idiotic game was that Russia would only give minimal assistance such that Trump’s “smart” missiles could reach some targets which were already prepared. The 4th rule was that Trump, May and Macron would be allowed to give orotund speeches with plangent, stentorian appeals to the loftiest platitudes about “joint action” when international norms were being violated. The 5th rule was that nobody would talk about selling lethal weapons to the Saudi chimpanzees so they could use them to violate international law by murdering innocent Yemeni civilians.

Foreign Office to Pay the Bill for Syria Attack?

How much will the replacement of the missiles benefit the banks and the weapons producers - dealers at the expense of the taxpayer? Perhaps the FO budget should pay the bill as it was a foreign venture.

Degeneracy and Fundamentalism of Western Media Control

08.04.2018 Andre Vltchek

Dedicated to ‘my’ magazine, NEO. There is nothing sadder and more pathetic, than a notorious liar shouting, spitting saliva, insulting normal people left and right, while terrorizing those who are telling the truth.
Lately, the West has gone clearly berserk. The more it is scared of losing control over the brains of billions of people in all corners of the world, the more aggressively it is screaming, kicking and making a fool of itself.
It doesn’t even hide its intentions, anymore. The intentions are clear: to destroy all of its opponents, be they in Russia, China, Iran or in any other patriotic and independent-minded state. To silence all the media outlets that are speaking the truth; not the truth as it is defined in London, Washington, Paris or Berlin, but the truth as it is perceived in Moscow, Beijing, Caracas or Teheran; the truth that simply serves the people, not the fake, pseudo-truth fabricated in order to uphold the supremacy of the Western Empire.
Huge funds are now being allocated for the mortal propaganda onslaught, originating predominantly in both London and Washington. Millions of pounds and dollars have been allocated and spent, officially and openly, in order to ‘counter’ the voices of Russian, Chinese, Arab, Iranian and Latin American people; voices that are finally reaching ‘the Others’ – the desolate inhabitants of the ‘global south’, the dwellers of the colonies and neo-colonies; the modern-day slaves living in the ‘client’ states.

Banditry of Western satanists called out

US, allies could stop Syrian conflict within 24 hours if they wanted to – Russian envoy
RT World News 14 Apr, 2018
Russia called the strikes that the US, the UK, and France carried out in Syria a "blatant disregard of international law." Moscow's envoy to UN said the three countries could have stopped the conflict in Syria within 24 hours.
By acting without any mandate from the UN Security Council, the US and its allies violated the norms and principles of international law, as well as undermining the authority of the UNSC, Russian Envoy to the UN Vassily Nebenzia said, denouncing the strikes against Syria as “an aggression against a sovereign state.”
Nebenzia also called the attack "hooliganism" in international relations, noting that it is not a small one, as nuclear powers are involved. He said that the countries used a well-tried pattern of "provocation-false accusations - false sentence - punishment."
"Is this the way you want to conduct international affairs?" he said.
"The conflict in Syria could have been stopped within 24 hours. Washington, London and Paris should have told their pocket terrorists to stop fighting the legitimate government of their people," Nebenzia said.
The British public could easily force the evil bastards here to stop.
May is evil, a satanist by any measure. The smallest of her sins is likely her tolerance of paedophiles and other perverts. And Trump?

Did Donald Trump rape Katie Johnson?
I think he did.
Did Donald Trump murder children for sadistic pleasure?
I think he did.
That makes him a 100.0% trusted Rothschild-Freemasons-Illuminati-Zionists puppet!
Why do I think he did?
I read this statement from Katie Johnson.

Putin sacks 11 generals April 6, President Vladimir Putin dismissed eleven generals from the structures of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Federal Penitentiary Service, the Ministry of Emergency Situations and the Investigative Committee. Is Putin Freemasonry controlled?

They are removing people from positions in power structures in the UK, USA, France, Russia, etc. Looks to me like the Rothschild bankers + Freemasons are once more setting the PIECES on the board for another World War!

Anti-Russia story finished.
Anti-Iran story finished.
Anti-China story finished.
What if China, Russia and Iran are FREEMASONRY controlled?
Question is then, do we all fall for it again? Like WW1 and WW2.
World Wars are carefully planned theatrical productions.

Trump Lied to the American People Last Night, 23 Times in 7 Minutes, Destroying his Presidency
Charles Bausman
RI Apr 14, 2018

It was clear from the first few minutes of War secretary Mattis's press conference last night that these strikes were going to be symbolic. They change nothing on the ground militarily. Russia's threat to respond worked - the US essentially backed down.

Far more important is the damage Trump did to himself politically. One can only guess at the pressures brought to bear on him to take this suicidal (politically) act. I'm starting to think that this whole charade, starting with the Skripal poisoning a month ago, was an elaborate plot to mortally damage his presidency, not to achieve anything in Syria - well, if so, the plotters have succeeded.

Trump has said and done many things that can hurt him over the past 18 months, but nothing as bad as standing up in front of the American people, and with great solemnity and invoking WW1 gassings, 'nobility' of warriors, prayer, and all this sort of talk, telling one whopping lie after another, looking straight into the camera. He knows they are lies, and a good chunk of the American electorate knows they are - I'm guessing 30% of the whole, and a good 50% of his base. That is not something you can come back from.

He just burned his bridges with a lot of people who think telling the truth is important.

Watching the conservative wall lining up against the bombing yesterday I wrote with great conviction that Trump would not do it, and confidently called it a day. How mistaken I was.

A video of Alex Jones sobbing is making the rounds, with a lot of schadenfreude from the left, and from those on the right who find it funny. But Jones is right, this is a tragic moment. He explains why he is crying, not because WW3 is starting (it most definitely is not), not because the bombings are an outrage (which they are), but because this is the end of the hope that Trump can succeed.

This will force Jones and the conservative base to turn on Trump. They will stay home in November. Syrians will weep today over their dead, as should we. We should also shed a tear for the death of a promise.

I listened to Trump's statement live last night. I was struck with the language. Who in the world writes this stuff? It reads like something written by Benjamin Netanyahu's press secretary. It is an embarrassment to America that our leader should be so beholden to other state's interests, and so willing to parrot their lies.

I keep asking myself, what could they possibly have on Trump that would compel him to do this? His delivery was a bit wooden, and he read off the teleprompter, somewhat resembling a hostage. We ran a story a few days ago from a body language analyst who argues that Trump is acting like he has been beaten this week. I'm starting to think she's right.

Doesn't he realize that nothing they possibly have could be as bad as this disgraceful lying? Lying is the absolute worst, the deadly sin that begets all the other ones. Any Christian understands that. Any relationship disintegrates when trust is lost.

It is a sad day. Trump just got beat, and beat bad by his opponents. It's time to look to other men to continue the revolution he embodied for a while. For that, at least, we should thank him.

The full text of what he said follows below. I counted 23 lies, which I underlined. I cringed watching a president I voted for stand there and parrot them, acting like he had a gun to his head. I know he knows they are lies, and so do 10s of millions of Americans. A sad day indeed.

Al-Qaeda’s MASH unit: How SAMS is selling regime change & driving US to war

RT Op-ed 13 Apr, 2018

The Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS) is treated by Western media as an objective group of medical professionals, when it is anything but, says journalist Max Blumenthal.

“Not only is the group dedicated to lobbying for regime change in Syria, it operates exclusively in insurgent-held areas at the pleasure of Salafi-jihadi groups from Hayat Tahrir al-Sham to Jaysh al-Islam. SAMS claims regarding chemical weapons use should therefore be treated with extreme skepticism. And the organization’s heavy funding by the US government should be viewed as a national scandal. Unfortunately, these disturbing facts have been withheld from the American public,” Blumenthal told RT.

*The article below was originally published by Gray Zone website.

Reports on unproven allegations of a chemical attack in Douma, the Syria city formerly occupied by the Army of Islam insurgent group, invariably rely on a key source: The Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS). Together with the White Helmets, SAMS has been cited by the Washington Post, New York Times, CNN and virtually every Western media organization reporting on the incident. In Douma, SAMS staff have claimed that they treated more than 500 people for symptoms “indicative of exposure to a chemical agent.”

The group also played a central role in shaping the narrative of a sarin attack in Al Qaeda-controlled Khan Sheikhoun in April, 2017, providing biomedical samples to the Organization for the Prevention of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), which violated its stated protocol by accepting evidence without a verifiable chain of custody. That incident prompted the launching of 57 cruise missiles at a Syrian air base by the American military. Almost exactly a year later, a strikingly similar event is said to have tripped the “red line” again, and is likely to trigger a more robust assault by the US and its allies.

SAMS claims to be a “non-political, non-profit medical organization,” and is cited as a credible authority by media reporting on the incident in Douma. Scant published material is available on the organization’s origins as an exile arm of the Islamist-oriented Syrian opposition, its involvement in sophisticated influence operations from the Turkish-Syrian border, or its close relationship to neoconservative elements in Washington and Al Qaeda’s affiliate in Syria.

SAMS is not merely a group of Syrian doctors tending to the wounded in war torn areas, nor can it be considered a objective source on chemical attacks and other atrocities. The organization is a USAID-funded lobbying powerhouse that functions with a single-minded determination to stimulate a US-led war of regime change that will place Syrian Islamists in power in Damascus.

SAMS was founded in 1998 by members of the Syrian American exile community, which is concentrated in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. Prior to the 2011 armed rebellion against President Bashar al-Assad, the group led several medical delegations to Syria, presumably cooperating with the government to gain access. A former member of SAMS approached me to complain that the armed revolt prompted a takeover of the organization’s board of directors by sympathizers of the Muslim Brotherhood. She said she and other secular and Christian members resigned from the group as it transformed into what she described as “Al Qaeda’s MASH unit.”

The secret?

We are programmable.
That means the programmers are too.
We just need to hack them. The enemy buys access with our (pretend) money. Deny them access. They unite against us, it hasn't taken so many to defeat us.
They keep us divided.
Syria was a multi cultural, multi ethnic etc. example of better governance, it had to go, like Libya. Eradicated.
True history carved in stone had to go so there is no reference to what we are meant to be, to have.
Wake up.
/shut up.
Make another person's life better, that is the true meaning of life. Or bomb them and their kids to hell, the Talmud way, apparently.
