In a bizarre moment of geopolitical theatre, the United States announced that Syria was planning “another” chemical weapons attack and the Syrian military would “pay a heavy price for doing so.” Apparently, U.S. military intelligence graduated from using facts to outright prophecy. Or, rather, should we say it graduated from facts and lies to outright absurdity?
The warning, which was announced by the White House amidst a rash of confusion in the wings of the Executive branch, was attributed to intelligence received pointing toward “active preparation” at a Syrian airfield for the use of chemical weapons.
Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis said the United States had recently seen activity at Shayrat airfield, the same base targeted by a U.S. cruise missile strike on April 6.
“This involved specific aircraft in a specific hangar, both of which we know to be associated with chemical weapons use,” Davis said.
Davis said the activity occurred during “the past day or two.” He did not say how the United States collected its intelligence.
The White House said on Monday it appeared the Syrian government was preparing for another chemical weapons attack and warned Assad that he and his military would “pay a heavy price” if it went ahead.
. . . . .
U.S. Senator Bob Corker, Republican chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said the concerns about preparations for a chemical weapons attack were authentic.
“The claims that they made, from my perspective, are valid claims,” he said.
The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, said the Trump administration intended its warning to be aimed not just at Syria’s government but also at Russia and Iran, another supporter of Assad.
“I believe that the goal is, at this point, not just to send Assad a message but to send Russia and Iran a message that if this happens again we are putting you on notice,” Haley said in a hearing in the U.S. House of Representatives.
And that’s it, ladies and gentlemen. That’s the sum total of the “evidence” of “preparation” for the “chemical attacks.” There was no further comment from the White House, only more grandstanding from the White House spokesman about militaries paying heavy prices and Nikki Haley putting more countries on notice. Even the White House itself admitted the “intelligence” was not conclusive.
In other words, even when Washington makes up evidence out of thin air, it still isn’t conclusive.
The reason it wasn’t conclusive, however, was because it didn’t exist. Assad doesn’t have chemical weapons and, even when he did, he didn’t use them. In addition, does it not strike the readers and viewers of the mainstream media as odd that, at the moment he is making his greatest gains of the six-year war, Assad would commit an act that has consistently brought down the possibility of and actual bombing against his forces by the largest military in the world? This new warning is reminiscent of one of the first major “chemical weapons” frauds, where the Syrian government allegedly launched chemical weapons as United Nations officials were only a few miles away in September, 2013 and again after Obama’s stupid “red line” speech. How can Assad stay in power for so long while being such a complete idiot? Either nature bends toward stupidity or Assad didn’t do it.
But, while many informed observers were wondering whether or not the United States was preparing another infantile round of propaganda in preparation for another false flag chemical attack to justify a direct military confrontation in Syria, Secretary of Defense James Mattis announced that Syria has backed down and discontinued the preparation for the attack. His proof? There has been no chemical attack.
What the world just witnessed was simply the United States government inventing a threat, making its own threats based on the made-up threat, and then claiming that its own threats prevented the original made-up threat from happening. It created a bogeyman and claimed to defeat it. Truly, 1st graders everywhere are in awe of the Trump administration.
Still, it seems relatively clear that the U.S. Government and the Pentagon were not only setting the pretext for a false flag attack that would justify another U.S. military intervention, but also putting out the call for every Western-backed terror organization operating inside Syria to conduct a chemical weapons attack. After all, America’s Ambassador to the United Nations and stealth Ambassador to Israel, Nikki Haley, stated that “Any further attacks done to the people of Syria will be blamed on Assad, but also on Russia & Iran who support him killing his own people.”
Seems pretty cut and dried, doesn’t it? Whatever happens, we will blame Assad, Russia, and Iran. I would love to hear an explanation by pro-war advocates as to why this statement would do anything besides embolden terrorists to commit a chemical attack. That is, in addition to humiliating the country even further, a feat Haley has proven time and again she is quite capable of achieving.
In all seriousness, however, it should be noted that one anomaly in this whole affair is that CENTCOM officials were reportedly unaware of the announcement made by the White House. According to sources in CENTCOM cited by Buzzfeed, the officials in this department were completely in the dark. What is interesting about this is that the Buzzfeed sources show that, either there is a disconnect between the branches of government or that there is a mole inside CENTCOM (presumably) releasing information to publicly undermine the White House.
Regardless, the announcement was clearly nothing more than a childish attempt a theatre leading up to a false flag event and the eventual military involvement of the United States in Syria based on the lie of a chemical weapons attack. As the situation continues to simmer on high in Syria, many observers and many Syrians all have the feeling that something big is about to happen. What it is, only time will tell.

this sounds like the MSM fake news the WH is always complaining about, anonymous sources, no evidence, invented story to fill a narrative, to incite the public and turn them against in this case assad russia and iran the only people actually fighting isis. So trump cant take the fake news but is ok about spinning it.
a different flavor of fake news
war is just murder desperately attempting to be legitimate! always promulgated by proven pathological lying psychopaths who manipulate everything you see and hear on your programming boxes “tv” from behind the scenes.. and you’re all programmed to accept it’s inevitability.. the only thing that is inevitable, is death itself.. everything else is a lie!
Also notice, those who throw you into these wars, never put themselves or those they care about into the line of fire! They use you as cannon fodder, allowing you to be slaughtered, while they laugh and make billions of dollars in war profits and plan the next war!
Feel stupid yet? if not, why not?
War is simply a tool used to control those that refuse to follow the central bankers rules. Major wars are the tool they use when the money control schemes fall apart as every ponzi scheme eventually does to distract those from figuring it all out.
Unless we stop it we WILL see another major war, and soon, then they will march in and set up yet another control system and it all starts again… truly sad.
War is also our main industry
God please forgive us….He knows I was never for this travesty.
It was so obvious. Today on Fox they were saying how successful our “warnings” were to keep the murdering, torturing dictator from gassing his own people!!
That is the same one who on 16 July 2014, was sworn in for another seven-year term after taking 88.7% of votes.
this fake orange clown started this fake news before the election to cover for the the real truth against him, nothing more than a ploy to call everything said about him FAKE news, then he could fool his idiot supporters into thinking its fake news only when he is caught by the truth, he is a lying disaster, and he needs to go, and let an adult take over, his 2 year old faces and tantrums are sickening, and repulsive…………….
When will all of you wake the heck up? Everyone’s picked a side in yet another ploy to keep you guys at each other instead of waking up to the reality that while there are indeed 2 sides it’s not the ones you think. Elections, political parties the whole of it is a farce as the 2 sides in this battle have always been ALL of us against those sitting at the top, those very few that own darn near everything.
How come none of you can see that regardless of the differences in political parties when it comes to the important issue like how a central bank controls the creation of a fiat currency which it creates out of nothing then charges you interest should you want to borrow from them is NEVER really questioned. While that sounds like no big issue please remember that your government borrows HUGE amounts and uses YOUR tax money to try to pay it back which it never can and never will be able to do. We are simple slaves paying taxes to pay for money our government borrows in ever increasing amounts. It was set up to rob us of any and all accumulated wealth and everyone’s kept busy picking sides in stupid little “issues” they keep throwing at you to keep you distracted and compliant.
Most people are convinced that the whole thing with the control central banks has over the whole planet is nothing but gibberish… some far out conspiracy but this system ALWAYS fails and when it does it ALWAYS leads straight to a major war.
Unless people wake up and do it soon they will get yet another war going to cover the fact that the system is coming apart at the seams. But hey, you might as well sit there spewing Trump this and Trump that because there’s no way you’d be of any use should you ever actually figure things out.
Yep the policies don’t change with leader from the other party…it’s obvious
So why did you upvote shill Kent Ford’s nonsense and ignoring of all the others guilty of this shit for the last 20 years or so? As if ALL this started when ‘the fake orange clown’ took over?
i see you follow and believe the fake news. lol
I’ve had him blocked for awhile now and think it is funny to see him and others still blabbing at me, without a clue to what they are saying :-))
He’s got a point Chris….Trump is a puppet like all the rest have been. He’s done a 180 degree turn on foreign policy…and I doubt that was his choice.
IMO there is a real danger to assume that being out here blogging with albiet some bright people that we know what the hell happened to candidate Trump. Opinions are often in the same ball park as rumors you know.
Trump may be hostage to any number of nefarious orgs that will torture his family to death in front of him. DARPA has done research for decades on drugs that leave a person controllable but not obvious to others.
So my point is who knows what happened??
Best we can do is act locally. Attend any meetings that try and control your life from PTA, school boards, and city and county council meetings to anything about land and water use or Agenda 21 (sustainability crap.)
Rabid Dog Mattis is another symptom
In all the saber rattling on the MSM I have never heard one of them admit Assad won by a landslide. Refugees lined up for blocks at foreign embassies to vote for him so this civil war baloney isn’t selling.
It is all part of the global war Rhonda. The war on information or truth is astoundingly successful. Shills like Hannity and others pretend to be for the people are just as much guilty as the rest.
All this solemn blab about “Our brave men and women fighting for our freedoms” is just so much BS. They are killing innocent people for the bankers.
Assad is a doctor, a man loved by his people. Just like Gadaffi was an elder who was doing wonderful things for his people. The common bond of Lincoln, Garfield, JFK, Hitler, Gadaffi, and Assad is they all have gone up against the Zionist banks to print money based on gold, not fiat currency based on nothing.
SELF DETERMINATION OF GOVT. used to be an American principle….what happened?
Essentially, within the limitations of an Internet comment box this is what is going on:
Humanity is at war with either off planet or terrestrial sociopaths or both that are terraforming the planet and eliminating soveriengy of the humans with an eventual goal of elimination of the majority of humans.
*The destruction of the Pacific Ocean from the Fukushima life extinction event.
*The destruction of the Rain Forests to use as grazing land for cattle for fast food company’s.
*The destruction of critical thinking in young people who are mostly ignorant pop culture consumers now.
*Digital addiction to SMART technology.
*Creating us/them pardigms to weaken the people.
*Endless war that drains economies and kills millions.
These are just a mere few of the things going on to reach an eventual goal of a technocratic society where people that are left are piled into stack and pack cities and tracked, traced, and data based 24/7/365.
America was NEVER free from the control of Great Britain. From David Icke research:
“In 1606 King James set up The Virginia Company to begin settlements in Virginia. Its early members were aristocrats. Eventually it was disolved and formed into a royal colony.
After the original 13 colony’s ‘independence,’ an ‘independent’ country was formed. The Virginia Company simply changed its name to the United States of America.
There are two USAs… a USA and a usA. The united states of America with a lower case ‘u’ and ‘s’ are the lands of the various states. The United States of America, capital ‘U’ and ‘S’, is the acreage on which is built the federal capital, Washington DC and the District of Columbia.
The USA is not a country, it’s a corporation owned by the same bloodlines who owned the Virginia Company, because IT IS the Virginia Company!”
The only suggestion I offer is to act locally as much as possible. Attend any meeting that is going to affect your lives from PTA, school boards, city and county council meetings to anything about land and water use and especially anything being passed off as “sustainability” or Agenda 21.
Do everything you can to bond not separate with people. We won’t win if we don’t present a united front.
the morons who thought this one up need to all be fired.
And we’re off, again, another evil dictator who has WMD’S just like Saddam. Once again the US is going to keep the world safe from these evil dictators even if it kills have of the population on earth. Saddam had them, Assad has them and we have them, we decimated Iraq, we’re doing our best to do the same to Syria…………
so who will decimate the US because we also have WMD’S ? Russia is friends with Assad and they were asked to come in and help destroy ISIS, (created by the CIA, surprise), Syria did not ask for nor do they want our help.
Assad is and has been protecting the Christian population of Syria, so exactly why are we interfering in Syria’s legitimate government ? Our troops are going to die there just like they did in Iraq and Afghanistan, McCain’s terrorists are slaughtering human beings all over the Middle East and the bankers love it.
Russia was invited to be in Syria we weren’t, when Russia draws a line in the sand you pay the price if you cross it, not like Obama’s retreating pink line in the sand. Messing with the bear has never been a good thing it doesn’t just growl, it kills.
Trid to answer you with truth but I forgot it was an Activist Post comment where the auto flagging is sensitive to mentioning Chews.
This may not reach you for days now.
How about that twit Nikki Haley…..she’s the one passing gas ….P. U. and it stinks too.
Now they are saying they prevented the bogus chemical attack by the warning they gave??? Incredible that anyone would buy that.
FOX = disinfo
Another thing that struck me as very odd was that N. Korean prisoner who died shortly after returning home….how convenient to gain support for another war.
Very sad, but he was still used as a pawn.
Its really a bit funny that the US expects North Korea to look after any American that gets sick and yet they have imposed sanctions that prevent a lot of life saving drugs to be imported.
Its the damned if you do and damned if you dont.
I wonder when the US will eventually come to the table and sign a peace agreement that could put this whole sorry task to sleep.
If it hadn’t been for Russia determined to stop ISIS and other jihadists from gaining control of Syria which terrorists had American help, Assad would be long gone, and the US would have destined the Syrian people to a future of Sharia and terrorist overlords. The whole Middle East would then be controlled by terrorists or the friends of terrorists and Russia being the closest to the action, would be the most negatively affected. When Putin said that he and Russia were in the fight to destroy the terrorists, he actually meant it. Compare that to the US under Bush, Obama and now Trump who all substantially supported terrorism, including Al Queda and ISIS because they though getting rid of Assad was more important and you get the true picture of betrayal of Western civilization by America! It stinks to High Heaven.
“…and the US would have destined the Syrian people to a future of Sharia and terrorist overlords.”
Even worse, destined to be slave to a Rothschild Central Bank….
Closed profile, no icon, and angry bullshit rhetoric. Hmmm, me thinks something stinks.
Jeez, hate the truths do u or u prefer stinking lies?! So u think all the mass murder/rape/robbery towards the Indigenous ‘Third’/Musl*m-Cath*lic World, in endless predatory evil wars by the canni*al & Necrophi*iac ZioNazis is just one big joke & we should laugh about it?! Get off psychopath!
BLOCKED (coward joker!)
See the Bible’s Revln, about the first BEAST with ten horns and seven heads, arising out of the sea – the conquest of the 5 major world oceans are the key!
What a FAKE, this ZNWO-controlled Tr*mp is! He pretended to be different from the ever vicious warmongering Lib Demc-Oba*a/Hilla*y; but they’re all from the same cannib*l belly of the Luciferian BEAST!
All, with the ultimate evil aims – for the first BEAST of the Revln, i.e. the Fascist ZNWO Empire, through NA*O, to conquer the world 5 major oceans and all the major Straits, whilst destroying the strongest anti-ZNWO institutions of Islam & Catholicism, and their many and diverse believers/peoples and nations, along the way, under the ZNWO’s
increasing genocidal Depopulation agenda (including through their most evil terrorist cells, IS/ISIS/ISIL – which are created by MOSSAD/CIA as revealed by the brave Snowden)!
And both ZioNa*i-controlled Lib/Consv Democ/Tr*mp’s/IS-ra*l/NA*O regimes are part of this ZNWO Empire’s beastly horns or heads!
I think Trump and closest are simply putting on an act to appease both the liberals who wail at imagined wrongs, and the hawks that are still pushing Obama’s plan to destroy Syria (and unfortunately still infest the US intelligence agencies).
Or else the US Navy is woeful, firing 69 cruise missiles at a Syrian airbase, and not managing much.
