ATTACK ON SYRIA BIG FLOP! AIR DEFENSES ROBUST; MASSIVE FAILURE FOR TRUMP, MAY, MACRON AND THE USUAL GANG OF IDIOTS

In the early hours of April 14, 2018, at specifically 3:55 a.m., the United States, Britain and France, launched a misguided campaign of noise and fire against the government and people of Syria.  The targets were already known by the Syrian government since the Russians had negotiated them with Secretary of Defense, James “Mad Dog” Mattis.  Since everybody knew Trump was going to do something, sometime, some way, all precautions were taken to protect lives and materiel.  Syria’s most advanced jets were stored in fortified hangars or flown to bases such as Humaymeem where Russian personnel are stationed.

The attack involved two U.S. cruise missile carrying destroyers in the Red Sea; tactical aircraft flying from one aircraft carrier in the Mediterranean; and several B-1 bombers traced to new runways in American-occupied Al-Tanf near the Jordanian-Iraqi borders.  The British fllew a wing of Tornado bombers carrying cruise missiles out of Akritiri Airbase in Cyprus while the French used their Mirages and Rafal bombers based in Jordan.

The combined forces used 110 cruise missiles 71 of which were either intercepted and destroyed by Syria’s Pantsir air defense systems or were electronically toppled by a force which will remain unmentioned.  Only 39 cruise missiles reached any target, many of them falling harmlessly in the Syrian Desert.

The only targets hit were a scientific research facility in Barza which contained classrooms and laboratories.  All material had been removed so that the Americans could claim falsely that they had destroyed a CW-related institution.  Another building which the Americans were allowed to destroy was a military warehouse in Homs, at Misyaaf, which the Americans could not hit because all the missiles aimed at that target were electronically toppled.  As the cruise missiles were being deflected, they exploded on the ground injuring 3 civilians. The NATO allies also fired 12 missiles at the Al-Dhumayr AB east of Damascus. Russian news says all 12 were downed by Soviet-era air defense systems.

Of the 110 cruise missiles fired, 14 of them were American Tomahawks.  Most of the others were British and Fench.  None of the British or French missiles hit any target.  Complete failure and a lesson to the allies of the U.S.

An helicopter airbase near the Lebanese border was also struck.  However, because the attack took place in the early hours, nobody was at the base and, conveniently, no aircraft were to be found.

One thing is absolutely certain:  this was a training exercise to see how well NATO weapons would work.  The enemy here, Syria and Russia, was in on the planning and knew ahead of time what the attacking force was going to do.  There was high drama, what with Trump calling Dr. Assad an “animal”.  There was puffing with Trump tweeting about his “new, smart” missiles in response to a Russian diplomat claiming his country would knock down all attacking missiles.  But, of course, Trump fancies himself a great negotiator and managed to negotiate the rules of this engagement.

The first rule was that the Russians have to convince Dr. Assad that his country was going to be hit, but not hard.  The second rule was that Dr. Assad could use all air defense assets at his disposal.  The third rule of this idiotic game was that Russia would only give minimal assistance such that Trump’s “smart” missiles could reach some targets which were already prepared.  The 4th rule was that Trump, May and Macron would be allowed to give orotund speeches with plangent, stentorian appeals to the loftiest platitudes about “joint action” when international norms were being violated.  The 5th rule was that nobody would talk about selling lethal weapons to the Saudi chimpanzees so they could use them to violate international law by murdering innocent Yemeni civilians.

So much for the touted Anglo-American-French attack to punish Syria. YAWN.  OH, YAWN.

If the US is capable of “reaching out” in a situation like this, it is a glimmer of hope (albeit not the central issue). My estimation of Mattis goes up rather than down – Deep State, Israel “appeased” with billions being taken off the thick Saudis so they will go bankrupt, with a nudge and wink to Assad and Putin over the stark reality. Maybe it is a way of disarming internal vultures too – for example, I would expect much worse from Bolton. Some sort of cool head seems to have prevailed by the West’s usual standards.

Reading through the news this am it’s very apparent this was grandstanding.
There were reports that Israel fired some missiles any truth to this at all?
Glad to read the Syrian people are by and large ok and safe

A dangerous game indeed. The gullible public of the West have once again seen their governments attack on the pretext of a chemical weapons attack. That is not good and only validates their lie. OPCW must inspect the terrorists claims and prove this was a lie.

Joe Lauria – Trump Attacks Syria With Chemical Experts on the Way

https://consortiumnews.com/2018/04/13/trump-attacks-syria/

Trump must obtain evidence of Syria’s guilt and legal authorization before launching an act of war.

The U.S. has neither demonstrated that it is acting in self-defense nor did it get U.N. Security Council approval, making tonight’s actions clearly illegal.

Nor has Trump received authorization from Congress, making it illegal under U.S. law.

Several Congressmen complained of this after the attack.

Trump last Tuesday said “I want to get out,” promising to pull U.S. troops out very soon, but was quickly brought to heel by pressure from Congress and a phone call from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that compelled him to change his mind within 24 hours.

Israel wants chaos in Syria and its instrument of choice is the American military.

Netanyahu has Congress to do his bidding and, for whatever reason, appears to also have Trump under his thumb.

The Syrian and Russian governments announced that 71 of over 100 missiles fired were intercepted, according to Russian media.

Targets struck had already been evacuated or were not currently in use.

Attempts to frame the Syrian government for using chemical weapons has become increasingly desperate and transparent.

Future attempts are likely to result in even greater global diplomatic and public backlash, suspicion, and the further undermining of Western credibility.

I expected no action of US due to lack of preparations needed for big strike. They did it anyway and damage is unbelievably low. No doubt they decided to test efficiency of Syrian/Russian air defense and that was the main goal (with Iran in mind as ultimate final target). I think such failure is a result of jamming or similar electronic activities. Outcome is great for Iran – no way guided missiles can damage huge country defended similarily to Syria.

Trump pays a big price for his folly, loses a large part of his political base. He is now a one term president. Whatever support he still had as a leader of the white hats has now disappeared. His swamp draining is a joke, dialed back to a personal vendetta. Nothing big will come of it, the system protects the deviants. With the loss of Trump’s promise as an ‘alternative’ voice for positive change, it’s all downhill from here. No one is in the wings to lead the country out of its death spiral. The US is toast.

.
An act of aggression against a sovereign state that is on the frontline in the fight against terrorism was committed without a mandate from the UN Security Council and in violation of the UN Charter and norms and principles of international law.
.
The Chinese government likewise laments the violation of international law and the UN charter.

In ordering the strike President Trump also broke U.S. law specifically the War Powers Resolution.

This only the end of one chapter. More to come. However if Putin will finally deliver the advanced air defence systems to Syria that will be a game changer. US forces, no matter how many, need air superiority to be successful, and they will be denied that with S300 and S400 systems strategically located. Then the east of the euphrates can be reclaimed.

It’s seems that BZ appeared in two ‘chemical attacks’ in Syria. One in Ghouta- One in Homs. If as Lavrov is saying this chemical weapon was employed against the Skripals- and is only in the hands of US/UK- then it’s two appearances in Syria connect it to the US/UK backed ‘rebels’ The state department under Victoria Nuland admitted that Syria did NOT have BZ– which was why they discounted the information that pointed at BZ intoxication
It didn’t fit the narrative- I’ve added a bunch more information to the original post here
