Russia Warned About U.S. Trained Militants Carrying Out Chemical Attacks In Syria Three Weeks Ago

Horrific events warned about three weeks ago, right down to the location, are unfolding in real time. Here’s the details…

There has been some serious escalations in Syria since just last weekend.

One of the most serious escalations came from the most recent chemical weapons attack, which has caused the U.S. to send a fleet of warships to Syrian waters, and even caused President Trump to cancel a South American trip to coordinate with the U.S. military for any possible response.

The blame for the attack has been squarely placed by President Trump on Iran, Russia, Syria, and even Putin himself:

But something doesn’t quite jibe.

You see, days prior to the chemical attack which caused a rapid if not massive escalation of geo-political tensions, we learned President Trump was pushing for the withdrawal of American troops from Syria.

And now instead of preparations to withdrawal U.S.troops we’re actually getting more bogged down over there?

The chemical attack in Syria has changed everything, and all of the sudden.

But this exact scenario was forecast by the Russians in advance.

Some three weeks ago, the Russians were warning of false flag chemical attacks being carried out in Syria.

Here’s more from RT on March 19th:

Russia’s Defense Ministry says “US instructors” are training militants to stage false flag chemical attacks in south Syria. The incidents are said to be a pretext for airstrikes on Syrian government troops and infrastructure.

“We have reliable information at our disposal that US instructors have trained a number of militant groups in the vicinity of the town of At-Tanf, to stage provocations involving chemical warfare agents in southern Syria,” Russian General Staff spokesman General Sergey Rudskoy said at a news briefing on Saturday.

“They are preparing a series of chemical munitions explosions. This fact will be used to blame the government forces. The components to produce chemical munitions have been already delivered to the southern de-escalation zone under the guise of humanitarian convoys of a number of NGOs.”

The planned provocations will be widely covered in the Western media and will ultimately be used as a pretext by the US-led coalition to launch strikes on Syria, Rudskoy warned.

And where was the latest attack in Syria?

That’s right – South Syria.

In Douma (close to Damascus):

Regardless of who is doing what in this lethal game of global chess, the escalations are blatant, front and center, and they are coming from all sides.

Earlier we reported on the U.S. Navy’s escalation of force, but what we did not add was that Russia is absolutely furious about this escalation.

Here’s more from Zero Hedge:

To be sure, Russia is concerned, and seemingly angry, that another showdown may be imminent. According to Pravda, the Chairman of the State Duma Defence Committee Vladimir Shamanov said that the United States did not notify Russia of the approach of the group of US warships to the Russian naval base in Tartus.

A group of ships of the US Navy has appeared at a distance of 150 miles from the Tartus region. It is common in international practice potential participants of events in the area should be notified accordingly in advance. We have not been notified, although we had legally ratified the agreement on two bases in Tartus and Khmeymim,” the official said.

“Moreover, US President Donald Trump said that he would think about the missile attack on Syria despite any resolutions at the UN Security Council. All this smells of something are outside the framework of universally recognised international norms,” Shamanov added, suggesting that Russia is preparing for a Syria attack.

More troubling is that also on Monday, Russia’s Ambassador to the UN Vasily Nebenzia said that the Americans would have to deal with  “serious consequences” should they attack Syria.

We have repeatedly warned the American side about highly negative consequences that may follow if they apply weapons against the legitimate Syrian government, and especially if the use of these weapons – God forbid, affects our military men, who legally stay in Syria,” the Russian Ambassador to the UN said at a meeting of the UN Security Council.

Unfortunately, where North Korea was the powder-keg of 2017, Syria is quickly turning into the powder-keg of 2018, but there is one stark difference:

The Russians were not actively involved in defending North Korea as they are in defending Syrian President Assad.

The question remains: Is Syria just a proxy from something larger, or is the powder-keg which is Syria the big one – as in WWIII?

We’ll know soon enough because with tensions this high, nations will either have to de-escalate, or lethal projectiles will be whizzing all over the place.

Stack accordingly…
