Russian Forces in Syria on Combat Alert: US Considers Attacks Directed Against Syrian Government Forces

Russian forces deployed in Syria, including S-400 and Pantsir-S1 air defense systems and Sukhoi Su-30SM multirole fighters, have been put on a combat alert, according to reports appearing from local sources in the country’s provinces of Tartus and Latakia where Russian military facilities are located.

Meanwhile, the Israeli TV channel i24NEWS claimed citing US officials that the US military is going to provide President Donald Trumpwith “a set of options for carrying out strikes against the Syrian government”.

“Both the Joint Chiefs of Staff and CENTCOM, the US forces in the Middle East, were compiling target lists and attack options to be presented to Trump and his national security team within hours, the officials said,” i24NEWS wrote.

A few hours earlier, a group of Israeli top officials and public figures officially called on Trump to conduct missile strikes against Syrian government forces in response to the alleged chemical attack in Douma.

In turn, Trump forgot that no confirmation of condicting the attack by government forces had been provided and claimed that “Animal Assad” will pay a “big price”. He also blamed “President Putin, Russia and Iran” for the incident.

Earlier, the Russian Foreign Ministry denounced the chemical attack reprots as “hoax” and warned that military actions against Syria could lead to the “gravest consequences.”

The conflict Syria is on the brink of another large-scale escalation.

      If TRUMP continues this DEEP STATE LIE, I’M OFF THE TRUMP TRAIN and can join the rest of the Pedophiles he STILL HASN’T ARRESTED ! #PIZZAGATE FK YOU TRUMP.

        Trump just didn’t quite pan out for you, did he? The luster is starting to wear off. I hope he gets impeached before we get vaporized. Not that it would be a bad way to go. :smile:

        • Rockledge

          We don’t know yet.

          One thing for sure, if he doesn’t “pan out” for this country, this country is doomed.
          He was our final hope for a return to being America, the beacon instead of america, the pain in the ass failed experiment we have become.

      A number of possibilities.
      1) It is all just more BS and another “the boogieman is coming to get us” charade to keep the public amused.
      2) President Trump knows things we do not and has a joker up his sleeve.
      3) That joker is a strike from another country, such as Israel, which I doubt because the west knows that Israel plays for keeps and their entry would mean an attack on them from a number of countries
      4) This is to the Russians what the Cuban missile crisis was to us and Russia finds a way to diplomatically diffuse the situation.

      Putin is a smart guy and could very possibly find a way to ease tensions, but no doubt he is also not a bullshitter
      and could very possibly call our bluff.

      Personally, I think it is just more fear mongering.

      Whatever pans out, it will be interesting.

      One thing we know is that Trump likes tweeting, reading how ignorant he’s been with his tweets about Syria, either he’s a braindead blond bimbo or he’s writing what he thinks someone wants to read. Guess we’ll find out soon but I wouldn’t be surprised if he really is blond.

      • Rockledge

        There is also very much a third possibility. That guy didn’t get where he is by being a fool.
        If you remember right, Al Gore debated idiot bush and displayed a huge warehouse of knowledge about the world, economics, and how government works in general while bush slung very low minded one liners, and the media declared bush as winning the debates, and the herd nodded right along with the media “yep he won”.
        You gotta remember that the average IQ in this country includes those who are the 50% BELOW that average, and they make up a significant voting block.

        Perhaps Trump took a lesson from bushs connection to the shallow end of the gene pool and has been playing to them all along for votes and support.
        Much in the same way a.m. talk radio stays popular by keeping intellectually lacking people entertained. You can’t convince me that talk radio hosts are the morons they pretend to be.
        President Trump says some very insightful things, it is not what he says that is the problem, it is the way he says it.
        Which tells me he is simply feeding the audience he thinks counts.
