Dramatic Escalation In Syria

By Alice Donovan

According to Syrian media sources, the Russian government has taken measures to guarantee more security for its forces in case of possible attack regarding the recent U.S. Tomahawk air strikes on the Shayrat air base on April 7.

At this moment, two Russian all-purpose jets capable of spotting and intercepting cruise missiles are barraging in the Eastern Mediterranean. Moreover, the Russian forces are ready to carry out retaliatory strikes on the U.S. ships that launch cruise missiles if they attack the Russian military objects (including Khmeimim and Tartus bases).

Meanwhile, the Russian military advisors have arrived at the Syrian bases equipped with the anti-aircraft defense systems to assist Assad’s forces to counter cruise missiles strikes.

The United States fired dozens of cruise missiles at a Syrian air base on Friday from which it said a deadly chemical weapons attack had been launched earlier in the week, escalating the U.S. role in Syria and drawing criticism from Assad’s allies including Russia and Iran.

“What America waged in an aggression on Syria is a crossing of red lines. From now on we will respond with force to any aggressor or any breach of red lines from whoever it is and America knows our ability to respond well,” said the statement.

The joint command center also said the presence of U.S troops in northern Syria where Washington has hundreds of special forces helping the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) to oust Islamic State was “illegal” and that Washington had a long-term plan to occupy the area.

The regional alliance said the U.S. cruise missile strikes on a Syrian base killed dozens of civilians would not deter their forces from “liberating” all of Syrian territory.

It’s notable that the British paper Daily Mail has removed an article titled “The United States supported the plan to carry out a chemical attack in Syria and blame Assad regime” dated January 29, 2013.

Meanwhile, thousands took to the streets to protest against the U.S. airstrikes against Syria yesterday. Protesters from all across the country made it clear that they will not stand for U.S. aggression in Syria, in a direct clash with the recent actions ordered by the Trump administration.

As the U.S continues to intervene in Syria, the majority of protesters expressed their concerns saying that money spent on these weapons of mass destruction, should rather go towards funding, “jobs, schools and healthcare.” The Tomahawk missiles that struck Syria in the first wave of airstrikes reportedly cost $60 million USD in total as one Tomahawk missile is valued at approximately $1 million USD.

    The alien/military/industrial/complex is initiating its plan for global dominance, the Reptilian Overlords are playing chess with the armies of various countries as their agenda 21 unfolds. The central bank will profit and the peoples of the planet will suffer, the elites will be rewarded for sacrificing the poor for helping the alien controllers who are re-establishing their control of their planet wide experiment. We have been controlled for millennia and it is time to reduce our numbers.

    “U.S. cruise missile strikes on a Syrian base killed dozens of civilians”

    I think this can be filed as “war propaganda”. It is very, very unlikely that there were children on that base. Except maybe the base had family day or something like that. Then again: Syria is at war. You don’t do that in war times. And it was night during the attack (see the “beautiful” images of the tomahawks..).

  3. “According to Syrian media sources, the Russian government has taken measures to guarantee more security for its forces in case of possible attack regarding the recent U.S. Tomahawk air strikes on the Shayrat air base on April 7.”

    Which means they are installing a new phone system so when Trump feels like wasting some more Tomahawk missiles, he can get a hold of them easier when he has to call them beforehand and let the Russians know what’s happening first.

  4. Trump is going to get America waxed off the planet… great job voters…

      Not like they were given much of a choice with Hitlary being the other candidate. I was proposing a complete boycott of the elections but Americans were clearly not ready for such a drastic move.

      • They had a choice, but the powers that be gave them madman and madwoman… both were bad choices… but God said he would send a delusion in the last days and brother it is here in full force…

    • Destroying Washington may be the only way for the world to be safe. These psycho pedophiles are really nothing more than monsters.

  5. Nobody questions why it is the combined forces of the technologically advanced and highly capable Russian military along with the formidable Iranian Revolutionary Guard and Syrian forces did NOT act swiftly to contain the flood of foreign jihadis entering Syria, thus risking destabilization of the Syrian government. Immediately stopping the influx of foreign terrorists would be an imperative Sun Tzu BASIC Military Strategy. Instead half measure were done allowing the terrorism cancer to metastasize to, apparently, to create another successor to Al-CIA-duh – this time bigger, more aggressive and more virulent . Operation Cyclone 2.0.

    A parallel narrative that also doesn’t make sense is how it was 19 terrorists with box cutters took down three WTC towers and struck the Penta(gram) yet “W” opted to NOT secure America’s borders, esp. the highly porous southern border, despite claims ‘suitcase nukes’ could easily be smuggled across.

  6. Nobody seems to wonder why it is the combined forces of the technologically advanced and highly capable Russian military along with the formidable Iranian Revolutionary Guard and Syrian forces did not act swiftly to contain the flood of foreign jihadis entering Syria at the very beginning. Not doing so risked destabilization of the Syrian government. A fast and decisive halt to the influx of foreign terrorists would have been an essential basic military strategy. Instead, half measure were done allowing the terrorism cancer to metastasize in order to, apparently, create another successor to Al-CIA-duh – this time bigger, more aggressive and more virulent . Operation Cyclone 2.0.

    A parallel narrative that also doesn’t make sense is how it was in the wake of 9/11 “W” opted to NOT secure America’s borders, esp. the highly porous southern border, despite claims ‘suitcase nukes’ could easily be smuggled across.

  7. Syria must have it’s own bank. So the Rotten childs are playing the U.S. Trump card.
