U.S. Launches Tomahawk Missiles Against Syrian Government

By Brandon Turbeville

Shortly after the chemical weapons incident in Syria, Donald Trump paraded himself in front of the world posing as emotionally distraught over the deaths of “beautiful babies” in Syria as a result of what he claimed was a Syrian government chemical attack. Of course, while no one knows definitively who was responsible for the attack, it is clear that the Syrian government was not the responsible party. At best, a weapons depot was bombed that was housing chemical weapons belonging to Western-backed terrorists.

Only a number of hours after feigning concern over gassed children, Trump ordered Tomahawk missile strikes against Syrian military bases in Syria, under the guise of protecting civilians.

The Guardian, reporting on the strikes up to the minute, reported,

The map shows al-Shayrat airfield, a Syrian military site close to Homs, which was targeted by around 60 US Tomahawk missiles.

It’s currently Friday 4.30am in Syria. It is not yet clear precisely what time the strikes were carried out.

At 9:40pm, The Guardian wrote,

CNN reports that the missile launches took place around an hour ago, at 8.45 ET – that would have been 3.45am in Syria. The targets at the military airbase included runways, aircraft and fuel points.

Five minutes later, The Guardian reported,

The strike comprised dozens of Tomahawk cruise missiles launched from the guided-missile destroyers USS Ross and Porter in the eastern Mediterranean. An airfield near Homs was targeted, signalling a limited initial engagement. The US did not target Syria’s formidable air defences, as it does before a concerted airpower campaign.

Below are Trump’s comments regarding his orders to strike Syrian military positions, given before reporters in Florida:

My fellow Americans,

On Tuesday, Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad launched a horrible chemical weapons attack on innocent civilians using a deadly nerve agent.

Assad choked out the lives of innocent men, women and children. It was a slow and brutal death for so many. Even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered in this very barbaric attack.

No child of god should ever suffer such horror.

Tonight I ordered a targeted military strike on the airfield in Syria from where the chemical attack was launched.

It is in this vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons.

There can be no dispute that Syria used banned chemical weapons, violated its obligations under the chemical weapons convention, and ignored the urging of the UN security council.

Years of previous attempts at changing Assad’s behavior have all failed and failed very dramatically.

As a result the refugee crisis continues to deepen and the region continues to destabilize, threatening the United States and its allies.

Tonight I call 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.

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 that peace and harmony will in the end prevail.

Goodnight and god bless America and the entire world. Thank you.

To this, I would add “God help America.” What the United States has done is to come to the rescue of terrorists, al-Qaeda, ISIS and, of course, forwarded its own agenda of imperialism in the process.

We now await the Russian response and the consequences that will possibly have dire ramifications for the rest of the world.

    If the Russians do not decisively respond to this aggression they and Iran are next …

  • BETTERDIENOW

    This can’t be happening. What ever the Zionists have on Trump it is not worth what is happening. Pray this was a mistake, otherwise all is lost World War is here 80% to 90% of the WORLD population WILL EVAPORATE and the rest will be RFID chipped and enslaved FOREVER.

    • NobodysaysBOO

      If those little US boats that did this sink we got real troubles, how will this FIX OUR ROADS and DEPORT our criminal MEXICANS?

  • It is beginning to look like Tillerson’s statement about removing Assad no longer being a priority was a feint – let Putin drop his guard and strike fast and hard. 60 tomahawks is a bigly tremendous, tremendous opening move.

    Xi Jinping is with Trump right now, so Putin cannot consult with the Chinese leader. This means the Russians will want to discuss the matter in the security council instead of launching an immediate retaliatory strike. Trump, on the other hand, could nuke North Korea tonight, putting the Chinese on the back foot.

    We may be closer to global nuclear war right now than we have been at any time since October 1962.

  • Toxik

    KCUF Trump! I was on his band wagon about non-intervention then he kills innocent lives bc those jihadis were storing their chemical weapons in residential neighborhoods. Who are Trump’s advisers? Can’t someone just tell Trump there is no incentive for Assad to use chemicals if he had any.
    Now I fear more chemical weapons will be used by the jihadis.

  • Silverado

    He’s as bad as neocon Barry. And it seems no different when it comes to his middle eastern warmongering. That’s strike 1 in my 3 strike ballgame and I can almost feel the coming strikeout. Hope I’m wrong…

    • NobodysaysBOO

      Maybe this will SCARE the MEXICANS OUT?

  • FREEPH

    Well, seems like we all have heard this well rehearsed script before. Anyone remember Iran, Libya and WMS (weapons of mass destruction) President Bush stated as his reason for bombing? We all know how that turned out ,right? Not true, false flag. There should be protests in every city after what Trump has done.

    • Craig

      Sadly most folks would rather be taking selfies at a twerking contest or wathing the big game on TV than protesting over a potential breakout in world war.

      • NobodysaysBOO

        Mushroom cloudy weather may ruin your picknick.

  • joe

    “Civilized nations”hall be ?!! Gimme a break all these globalists who have just bombed a sovereign country on false pretext and without any investigation shall be tried in an international court as war criminals…

    • blue579

      It’s the Globalist’s usual problem, reaction, solution gimmick and ordo ab chao playbook. In this case, they are looking to establish an international military and police force that moves across borders at will. By making a chaotic fearful mess of the “war of terror”, esp. in Syria at this time, they may be attempting to manufacture consent.

  • nochipforme

    Trump: “There can be no dispute that Syria used banned chemical weapons, violated its obligations under the chemical weapons convention, and ignored the urging of the UN security council.”

    Because there has never been a history of a false pretense to take us into war…

    I did not notice it being mentioned that this week marks the 100th anniversary of Woodrow Wilson enlisting the U.S. into the First World War based solely upon a lie. April 6, 1917…..Coincidence?

    • NobodysaysBOO

      BULL we did nam.

      • nochipforme

        The statement was satirical. Every foreign conflict the U.S. has been involved in was under false pretenses. The banksters make a lot of money on bloodshed. It is part of their occult sacrifices they make money from.

        • NobodysaysBOO

          yep never give a SUCKER an even break that ameristan!

    • blue579

      Hello, Nochipforme. This appears to be another high octane news incident to distract the small percentage of us who are fully awake to the steady expansion and entrenchment of the global control grid to include human chipping and biometric tracking.

      There’s also the possibility this incident is intended to create a clamor for an international solution, establishing a role for a world government to arbitrate conflicts and the UN blue helmet brigade to combat “international terrorism”.

      • nochipforme

        Totally agreed. We know that that is the end game.All of these events are geared toward that. I think they need a major event of cataclysmic proportions to force everybody that is not already carrying the RFID microchip. to be in the system. Anyone that doesn’t will be hunted down as a terrorist.

  • Paul Panza

    Our ping pong president is killing Syrians who are someones child regardless of age as though to say he knows the difference between them and an actual “child of God”. To those of US that are atheists and recognize the rights of all living entities I find his illogical reasoning astounding and moronic. Another false flag raised by a Reptilian controlled president in order to justify the Fourth Reich Agenda 21. The Reptilians gave US false religions in order to control US in these false flag operations so we will stay aligned with this governments state sponsored terrorism. One lie built upon another lie will not protect US from the extinction that is planned for all the peoples of this god forsaken planet. Open your hearts and eyes people to these old world lies and throw off the chains of these puppet mastered presidents. A note to the Trumpster: Don’t come to my neighborhood with your false flag killing people for democracy logic.

  • Billo

    Trump is not our president. He represents the Israeli neocon New World order lobby. That has become crystal clear

  • Common Sense

    We haven’t had a president for the people since Kennedy.
    All in DC must play ball or be ousted, including Trump.
    The US is indebted to the banking cabal and is used as their muscle.
    There are resources to be exploited in Syria that they want.
    Wesley Clark told of the plan to overthrow seven countries in five years. They are behind schedule.
    There is no civil war in Syria. The conflict is between the hired thugs isis and the Syrian government.
    Their thugs are failing so the military must step in and do it themselves.
    Corruption is so rampant in this nations leaders that it now is more like a mafia.
    Their lies to justify their criminality are weak and repeated.
    Our so called leaders have run amok and are not right in their minds and hearts.
    How long will the American people allow criminals to run their nation into the ground?

    • NobodysaysBOO

      Worse than obama a new GOLF BUM and WE GOT CHEATED AGAIN!

  • Liz Lew

    Trump has jumped into the swamp. I don’t believe Assad had anything to do with killing children. Rand Paul says it all for me. Remember during the Iraq war a young girl testified in Congress that babies in incubators were being murdered. Later it was learned that the girl was the daughter of the Iraq ambassdor to the USA and everything she said were lies, propaganda.

    • NobodysaysBOO

      kuwait with the baby STUNT. Iran with the TORTURE CHAMBERS.

      • drbhelthi

        How many illegal, secret confinement facilitites did the US CIA have scattered throughout Europe and the Far East, until they were publicized and international opinion and law required that most of them be closed? What about the ones on Diego Garcia and Ramstein Airbase and in Poland that have not been closed? Which nation has had torture chambers that were worse than the CIA abuse in the prison of the US Naval facility at Guantanamo, Cuba?

    • Ro2

      Whose plane was it then, that is caught on tape delivering the baby killing weapon from that airport?

      • Liz Lew

        It could have been anyone’s plane. Who is to say there was a weapon(s) in that plane.

  • Here we go again!

    Just like Solomon warned, there’s nothing new under the sun. Trump proves himself to be as much a international imperialist as the Presidents who preceded him. Surprise, surprise! And we should be asking ourselves, at who’s behest? Do you think Trump’s son in law Jared Kushner may have had something to do with this decision.

    “…The power to declare war is a serious responsibility. Why were the framers so vague in defining the parameters of war and the conditions under which it could be declared? Section 8, Clause 11 is the only place of significance where warfare is mentioned in the Constitution. Little wonder this power has been abused. Luther Martin [one of Maryland’s delegates to the Constitutional Convention] protested:

    ‘…the congress have also a power given them to raise and support armies, without any limitation as to numbers, and without any restriction in time of peace. Thus, sir, this plan of government, instead of guarding against a standing army, that engine of arbitrary power, which has so often and so successfully been used for the subversion of freedom, has in its formation given it an express and constitutional sanction….’40

    “John Quincy Adams predicted the consequences of America’s international military entanglements:

    ‘America … has abstained from interference in the concerns of others, even when the conflict has been for principles to which she clings…. Wherever the standard of freedom and independence has been or shall be unfurled, there will her heart, her benedictions, and her prayers be. But she goes not abroad in search of monsters to destroy.… She well knows that by once enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication, in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy and ambition, which assume the colors, and usurp the standard of freedom. The fundamental maxims of her policy would insensibly change from liberty to force; the frontlet on her brow would no longer beam with the ineffable splendor of freedom and independence; but in its stead would soon be substituted an imperial diadem, flashing in false and tarnished luster, the murky radiance of dominion and power. She might become the dictatress of the world: she would be no longer the ruler of her own spirit.’41

    “Because the framers provided no Biblical parameters, unbiblical warfare has been the rule ever since. Following is a list of the countries bombed by the United States since World War II….

    “From 1945 to the present [2012], the United States has bombed nineteen different countries under the guise of defending America’s sovereignty and promoting democracy. But America is none the better for it, and not one of these countries has become a legitimate democracy – not that this would be anything to celebrate. Something is amiss. Wars fought for political gain or financial profit can only be classified as ungodly acts of aggression….”

    The “U.S.” did not attack Syria with 50 BGM109s, rather the Pentagon leadership with approval of U.S. president Trump, without approval of Americans, attacked the sovereign nation of Syria. Per international law the leadership of Syria is justified in reciprocating against the US naval vessels that launched the BGM109-Tomahawks.

    The action continues the CIA-MOSSAD-Pentagon subterfuge against Syria and democratically-elected president Assad of Syria. The continued attack on Syria and president Assad supports the terrorism of “Israel”, whose leadership is aggressing further into Syrian territory.

    One may conclude that the CIA-MOSSAD has regained control of the White House. That is, if it were ever lost. President Trump´s attack on Syria and its president Assad is NOT consistent with his promise to “drain the swamp” and clean up the subterfuge of the Obama administration, the Pentagon and Washington, D.C.

    Americans elected president Donald Trump to fullfil his promises, not to continue the subterfuge of the CIA/MOSSAD and remove Moslems from the area that Judaism´s leadership wants to overtake and rename “Israel”.

  • Johnny Jones

    The greater Israel neocon warhawks are loving this situation. After all they wrote it and pushed it. It makes Trump look like a idiot and creates a huge division in America. Well played neocons, well played.

  • ICFubar

    The so called ‘American national interest’ is a criminal operation and American now has another war criminal President hanging like an albatross around the necks of the American public which in the main shuts up rather than puts up against their criminal leaders.
