US Strikes Syria, Russia Set to Respond

By James Corbett

It has begun. Trump, declaring “national security interests,” has ordered an attack on Syria, striking a Syrian government airfield with a volley of 50 Tomahawk missiles. The news is still breaking and could include a Russian military response. Please help in compiling data on these events by leaving links and info in the comments section below.

  1. Hopefully this will become problem, reaction, solution for an “international solution”, Trump’s own language. If this shifts in a positive direction, the next step will be a quieting of saber rattling and pounding of war drums in various media outlets.

    Russia has taken a somewhat neutral stance in a RT article yesterday. As well, Russia was apparently advised of the missile strike to eliminate the complication of Russian causalities on the Syrian air base. Two positive signs the conflict won’t escalate and a path has already been prepared for cooperation.

    Washington Post 4/7/17: “The strikes were launched from the USS Ross and the USS Port, two destroyers in the Mediterranean Sea, a defense official said on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the operation. Russian forces also use the Syrian base, but U.S. military officials said they “deconflicted” with them ahead of time to minimize the possibility of them being caught in the strikes.”

    Russia Today 4/6/17: Moscow’s support for Damascus ‘not unconditional,’ Assad doesn’t follow Russia’s orders, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov

    • “The Kremlin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Mr Putin, a staunch ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, viewed the action taken by Donald Trump as an “act of aggression” against a sovereign state on a “made-up pretext” to distract the world from civilian deaths in Iraq.

      “Putin views the US strikes on Syria as aggression against a sovereign state in violation of the norms of international law and on a made-up up pretext. Washington’s step will inflict major damage on US-Russia ties,” Mr Peskov was cited as saying.

      He added that Russia did not believe Syria possessed chemical weapons and that the air strikes would inevitably create a serious obstacle to creating an international coalition to fight terrorism.”

      Here is the full RT report cited: “He admitted that Moscow’s support of Damascus is not unconditional by saying that “unconditional support is not possible in this current world,” but stressed that “it is not correct to say that Moscow can convince Mr. Assad to do whatever is wanted in Moscow.”

      “This is totally wrong,” he said, referring to any assumptions suggesting that Moscow can direct Damascus’ actions.” That is the context of his remarks about conditional support, not the implied backing off from full support.

      Calling US action against Russia’s staunch ally war crimes signals the end of the fake peace overtures of Trump. Another Big Lie has been exposed as pandering.

      • Fake, yes, Dale, you’re a good Harvard alum pol sci limited hangout spinner telling us we’re all delusional conspiracy whackos to think ongoing engineering projects have been filling our skies with chemtrails, and nuts to question the safety and efficacy of vaccinations.

        The globalist are very good at working the duality, spinning information with a hard twist for one group and counter twists for other unsuspecting readers striving to understand the geopolitical trajectory and thus the Big Pic.

        You have nothing to say about the fact that the Russians were given a heads up on the strikes could potentially be a good sign that the conflict won’t escalate and cooler heads will prevail.

        BTW, Russia Today is a news outlet of the Kremlin, whereas the Independent is a western Establishment mouthpiece.

        • Ad hominem insults are trolling.

          Yes I read about the headsup: “Donald Trump, who’s totally not Vladimir Putin’s puppet, warned Russia before airstrikes on Syria.” Trump is hoping his Russian investors, many close to Putin, won’t hold war crimes against him.

          Russia has responded US acts are aggressive, effectively acts of war. As an ally, acts of war against Syria are acts of war against Russia. Oh, Russian TV is Russian? Who knew.

          Since you trade in insults, I take you as a troll.

          • Limited hangout is an ad hominem or an assessment?

            That you were the first person to jump on my sourced commentary and you opted to not engage in a dialogue to flesh out the relevance of the military heads up but rather chose an Independent piece to spin my perspective speaks for itself.

            You’re a very angry establishment person educated at Harvard in Political Science yet insist the US is a democracy when the rest of us know it to be a republic.

          • It’s a fascist smear and a lie. I am neither angryh nor establishment; I dropped out of Harvard because it was too establishment. The US has never been a democracy; it has always been an oligarchy. You are badly deluded, my friend.

          • “A fascist smear?’….blue579 is not your friend …when someone has the audacity to point out anything you deem contrary to the pin-hole reality of your Matrix/Borg view ‘idea construct’…Thing is, when it gets right down to it …you’re easy!…you always paint yourself into a corner…. & when you finally realize what you’ve done …you cry out that you’re an old man & frail & that we’re big meanies…as has been witnessed on many occasions.

          • dale ruff | April 7, 2017 at 1:29 pm |

            I treat others as I wish to be treated. I wish to be treated as a friend, so I treat all as friends. That is my moral philosophy.

            Your insults are trolling, friend.

          • eddysachs | April 7, 2017 at 1:32 pm |

            No you don’t …you’re a vainglorious hypocrite …I witnessed you lash out at people on several mendaciously contrived occasions…obviously you’re a ‘legend in your own mind’ & unaware of your own dark shadow….maybe you can’t remember things as well as you used to Hmmmm? …..& you’re not my friend….but soon you’ll be making new friends every day.

          • dale ruff | April 7, 2017 at 1:41 pm |

            I present a rational case with evidence and sources. If you push me, I may push back. That is not aggression, friend. I am a humble 76 year old who values truth above all and seeks creative dialogue, which is why I dismiss people like you who are here to trade insults.

          • eddysachs | April 7, 2017 at 1:44 pm |

            I rest my case…in lieu of a psychiatric evaluation of Mr Ruff

          • dale ruff | April 7, 2017 at 1:51 pm |

            The sad truth is you never had a case…just a toolchest of insults. Like Stalin, you send those who call out your misdeeds as psychiatric cases. Try reason, evidence, and credible sources if you wish to have an intelligent discussion. The smears, accusations, and insults only boomerang.

          • eddysachs | April 7, 2017 at 1:58 pm |

            Maybe a speleological expedition can be mounted to in fact see just how far into the labyrinth your head is actually located… waaaaay up where the sun don’t shine…it will be a dangerous mission fraught with tiny little apertures & crumbling logic wherever they go …in danger of a cave in at any moment-(lol)

          • dale ruff | April 7, 2017 at 8:36 pm |

            More insults, more trolling.

            You do not adhere to the moral philosophy that you stated. Your sources are consistently associated with your intent, as though they and you are one and the same.
            As to vaccines and vaccinatons, their effectiveness is not established. There is no scientific research that suggests vaccination to be effective. None. Vaccines contain metals, pus and synthetic oil, all of which poison the body. We use special preparations to chelate metals and other poisons from the body. Chelation is preferably supervised by a licensed physician or health specialist. Why inject these poisons into the body, only to subsequently require the assistance of a physician to remove them?
            Over 200 years ago a group of Scottish physicians notified Edward Jenner that his “cow pox” did not innoculate against smallpox. Nor do any of the current “cow poxes” innoculate against anything. Nor have they ever.

          • eddysachs | April 7, 2017 at 6:55 pm |


          • You posted several comments in your early appearances on this website about our “democracy”. Which I found a bit surprising given your education focus.

            You adhere to official establishment stances on climate change and mandatory vaccinations, for example, and call us paranoiacs or delusional regarding geoengineering / chemtrails, Agenda 21, etc.

          • Also odd with your education you seem oblivious to citations of Professors Carroll Quigley’s research and Antony Sutton.

            You also have no desire to inform us of the historical relevance of the 1930s era big Technocracy Inc North American political movement and what that might have to do with Parag Khanna’s emergence advocating a shift to an authoritarian Technocracy, eliminating the electoral college, and trashing the Constitution.


          • Psy-op Deflection 101…always create an obscurantism of ‘Offense’ as a ‘Defense’ with finger pointing aggressive chutzpah ….So says the epitome of a bona fide ‘settled science’ psy-op/ spin-doc LOL!
            …a tad oxymoronic that a bloviating vaccine-pushing chemtrail denying pontificator such as yourself has the hubris to suggest otherwise is laughable considering your track record

          • Insults = trolling.

          • Says the Troll (lol)…is that the best ya got?…pathetic

          • I trade in evidence, science, and sources. You trade in insults, and when called out, you double down. I suspect deep envy, masked as scorn: sour grapes.

            Your laughter is phony, my friend. Insults= trolling.

            Says the Troll-(lol) …its water off a ducks back …nothing you say sticks…its like trying to eat cotton candy…it looks good to a kid …but it disappears when one tries to eat it… leaving just a hint of what could have been perceived as fulfilling…but actually you trade in MSM propaganda that’s actually pure platitudinous specious sophistry continually weaving delusional empty fluff…as (imo) there is substance to your meandering quixotic & deluded comfort zone speculations ….because its based upon ‘Hot air’ sources…period …end of story

          A wise man never argues with a fool.
          Let him spout all he wants. He’s already ruined his reputation with his own rants.
          He should take Lincolns advice. “It is better to be silent and thought a fool than speak up and remove all doubt”

          • Great quote. If only it were that easy to remain silent and hope the average Joe or Jane running nonstop on their hamster wheels, too busy to research and think it all through, could make heads or tails out of the infowar with its sophisticated psy ops and mini-Matrices within the Matrix, no person would be happier than myself. 😉

  2. Just wonder what ‘pictures’ were shown to the ‘highest chief’ which supposedly ‘moved’ him to start the KILLINGS. How ironic, make America great again, with KILLINGS and OPPRESSION. 4/4 special number again?? The killings are A clear message right now, where everybody stands… Not a single moron, should have the power to decide for the whole humanity on the entire globe, in particular about whom to eliminate.

      Hear hear! Right on the mark! Who is the terrorist now? Why we listen to those Zionist crooks running Israel, the Fed, and the big Pharma cartel, I’ll never know..
      It should be obvious to anybody with a clear mind, just who the real enemy is, and it sure as Hell isn’t the foolish foot soldiers defending their foolish religion – oh, they’re wrong, too, but they have an excuse – the Kuran (Quran, whatever). Check out the real history of Zionism – all the way back to the Khazarian barbarians and their King, back in 800AD or so. Might not be a bad idea to read the original Babylonian Thalmud, either. We should be helping Hassan rid himself of this insurgency – oh, I almost forgot, its our black budget financing it, isn’t it? Are we fools, or are we just – well, fools, I guess?
      Looks as if “the Donald” is just a replacement part, after all – how sad, and we all were foolishly hoping – kinda smells like 2008, doesn’t it?

      • The majority were not hoping Trump was authentic, as they voted against him and now 65% disapprove of this tool of the Deep State. Obama does out as one of our most popular Presidents, scandal-free (I am NOT an Obama fan; I am a Greenie);

        Trump starts as our most unpopular and untrusted new President, already having killed children, taken the side of al Quada in Syria, escalated the genocide in Yemen, and now attacking the nation he promised to help rid of terrorists, a strong ally of Russia, thus blowing up the fake peace initiiative. Thanks.

  3. Premier example to the things a nation/people surrender when they complete an obscene “coupling” with the synagogue – The D.C. Judas Class… No honor, no decency. My heart aches when I think of the DECENT human beings sacrificed at the alter of Satan.

  4. There will be no change until the naive lazy masses own up to the fact that their country is controlled by zionist neanderthal khazars, it is a dead hollow shell of lies and murder and has been since 1913

      Kudos my friend!. You nailed it with that. My perception and fear is that the American people, like the Germans in 1935, will cowardly go along to get along but will go down with the evil pied pipers in the end.
      THEN you’ll hear them cry VICTIM.

      How bad does it have to get before people face reality.
      Our biggest enemy is not in far away places but right here in DC

      Einstein coined the phrase…
      “It will not be the few evil ones who destroy the world but the masses standing around watching it and doing nothing”
      This is not a TV show people. Our leaders have gone rouge and the world will not sit around doing nothing about it like we are. They will view our silence as condoning it.

    I wish I read that Russia and China retaliated immediately because I expect them t be ready for any attack of Assad and NOT syria by him, not only Russia, and to retaliate without giving any time for political cooling or the very well known US strategic anecdote intended to dissuade retaliation.

      There will come a time very soon when all the kids on the playground unite against the bully remembering all the past violations but unable to do anything alone.
      The American people better wake up from their denial and apathy and see the seriousness of this situation because if we don’t actually start doing something about it we will be viewed as united with the evil bully.
      These people leading us are not stupid but I feel definitely insane. They travel in the same circles hearing the same insane rhetoric until they come to believe it themselves.

    GO ON Russia GO ON and hit Trumph where it will hurt Americans most so that his removal will be faster than Americans can do it. China this is your war as well. Get bombing without delay.

      Trump is just another, in a long line of kabuki dancers, designed to fool, distract and lie to the gullible American people. Without addressing the root cause, ( the evil behind Trump, Clinton, Bush, and all the rest of the puppets they trot out before us, we would be just trading one evil master for another.

  7. I voted for Trump and it pisses me off that he lied to me on the campaign trail. He said he was going to get us out of these foreign conflicts and take care of business at home and then he listens to the same idiots that Obama and others have listened to and jumps into a new conflict with both feet. Really Really pisses me off because most of us know that the CIA is behind all this crap and most likely funded whoever did the gassing !!!

  8. I find it disgusting the way certain alternative media outlets tries to brush this off as some strike of genius on trump’s behalf.

    They can point to the fact that there weren’t overwhelming damage inflicted and Russians being deliberately not targeted and supposedly given warning well in advance through the deconfliction channel(which has since been aborted) well the fact remains that civilians living in nearby village(es) were killed in their sleep. Including children. Were these targeted then? How can they have deliberately avoided Russian personell If they can accidentally hit civilians? Sounds like either the US is guilty of yet another war crime or the expensive missiles either aren’t accurate, and Russian and Syrian personnel was in grave danger all along and lo and behold Syrian personnel died.

    And the notion that it’s all to scare the Chinese into submission is absolutely ridiculous. They are willing to work on NK it is the US who wish to keep the tensions high there to justify it’s own presence as you Corbett so diligently pointed out in an earlier video.

    Some even brush off the fact that Tillerson is actually talking about regime change and is calling for building up a coalition.

    It doesn’t get more serious than that but yet people are being actively pacified by these bastards and grave events played down so that the voice of urgent action dwindles in the wind into a ghasp in the comment section somewhere. A line of text. 140 characters in caps. Ignored and forgotten.

    The truth is the US can’t both be “the leader of the free world” and *not* “Globalist” at the same time.

    It cant continue to pretend they are “the good guys” globally with their giant militarily. They can’t pretend to be putting it’s citizens first when colossal amounts of money is being spent on military and war.

    This is what Donald Trump insinuated he would be changing and it has to really be hammered home that he has backstabbed his supporters.
