War Drums Beating Louder: Chemical Weapons Used In Syria Again (And Iran, Russia & Syria Did It)

The war drums are beating louder than ever, and even President Trump is beating them. Here’s the details…

Another day, another need by the Deep State/Military Security Complex to up the war rhetoric.

President Trump now appears to be on the war path.

Not sure who got to the President, but the Deep State/Military Security Complex’s intentions clear.

Here’s from yesterday:

At least five things should be alarming in a series of three Tweets:

  1. President Trump as said the blame lies on Iran, Russia and Syria – as in it’s a closed case.
  2. Somebody must pay for this – as in military action?
  3. This is a ‘humanitarian’ disaster – as in send in the military under the guise of a humanitarian mission.
  4. Should have gotten rid of Assad long ago – as in regime change?
  5. “Animal Assad” is like calling Kim “Rocket Man” – belittle the enemy 1984 style so that everybody “hates” the “animal”.

Now I’m no geo-political expert, although I did see war first hand and I saw first hand that war is racket.

So there is no way to sugar coat it – this rhetoric is bad news.

As usual, Paul Craig Roberts has some good commentary on the developments from Skripal and now this:

As soon as the British orchestration of the “Skripal poisoning” was exposed as part of the ongoing plan to demonize Russia, the next false flag event is staged. Again Syria is accused of a chemical attack against civilians. As the Syrian army is fighting successfully against Washington’s mercenaries euphemistially called “rebels” even by Russian media, the accusation of a chemical attack against civilians makes no sense. It is well known that the “White Helmets” are a Washington propaganda organization whose mission is to foster fake news about staged events.

Nevertheless, the Russians again rose to the bait. General Yury Yevtushenko said that as soon as Douma is liberated Russia will send specialists to collect data that will expose the accusation as a fabrication.

As if Washington will care. Washington has already declared that Russia is responsible no matter who did it.

Here’s a link some coverage from RT.

And for those visual learners out there, here’s World Alternative Media with some coverage on the latest “chemical attack”.

(Yes, the same WAM that interviews hard hitting economic analysts such as Rob Kirby and G. Edward Griffin):

In addition to the chemical attack, we are learning from Russia that two Israeli F-15 Fighter Jets have struck a Syrian airfield. Supposedly the attack was carried out in Lebanese airspace, and the jets never entered Syrian airspace.

Here’s more from Zero Hedge:

Russia and the Syrian military blamed Israel for a pre-dawn missile attack Monday on a major air base in central Syria, saying Israeli fighter jets launched the missiles from Lebanon’s air space. A war-monitoring group said the airstrikes killed 14 people, including Iranians active in Syria.

Russia’s Defense Ministry said two Israeli aircraft targeted the T4 air base in Homs province, firing eight missiles. It said Syria shot down five of them while the other three landed in the western part of the base. Syrian state TV quoted an unnamed military official as saying that Israeli F-15 warplanes fired several missiles at T4. It gave no further details.

Israel’s foreign ministry had no comment when asked about the accusations.

Since 2012, Israel has struck inside Syria more than 100 times, mostly targeting suspected weapons’ convoys destined for the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah, which has been fighting alongside Syrian government forces.

Most recently, Israel hit the same T4 base in February, after it said an Iranian drone that had violated Israeli airspace took off from the base. The base, which was used as a launching pad for counter offensive attacks against Islamic State militants who were at one point stationed close by, is near the Shayrat air base, which was targeted by U.S. missiles last year in response to a chemical weapons attack.

Monday’s missile attack came hours after President Donald Trump warned there would be a “big price to pay” after a suspected poison gas attack Saturday on the last remaining foothold for Syrian rebels in the eastern suburbs of Damascus. At least 40 people were killed in that assault, including families found in their homes and shelters, opposition activists and local rescuers said.

So here’s a question:

What if the economy is on the brink of collapse, and since false flags in places like the U.S. and the U.K. can be picked apart in no later than two days, there needs to be some false flag big enough to push the world to the brink of war to cover-up and distract from a collapsing economy?

This one attack may not be on the scope and scale needed, but a a means to an end and as a sum of it’s parts, this attack is a step in that direction.

Stack accordingly…
