    Comment section on Tillerson's account is not thrilled at prospect of Syrian involvement. Donald's reddit sub is also opposite of happy. Same for Breitbart. I assume those are Trump's voters?


    In the meantime jihadi offensives in Daraa and Latakia have ended in painful failure:

    I don't know, but I am thrilled to see how USA and their dogs would attack Syria. We would see how good is Russian AA network and hopefully see some action in the air. Fuck this pussyfooting, it has to be settled once and for all.

    Cruise missiles.

    Intercepting them is not a problem, they are subsonic. Our guy were doing it with everything from MANPADS to trainer-jets.

    Problem is that MSM will present any interception of those as an act of war and USA population will swallow it whole.

    Looks like some of the main spillways at Tabqa dam are back in action after repair work, relieving the pressure.

    Syrian War: News #12 - Page 7 Empty Chemical weapons kill civilians in Syrian town of Khan Shaykhun

    Post  A Different Voice Fri Apr 07, 2017 1:31 am


    Lots of civilians, including children, dead in chemical weapons incident. It occurred in extremist controlled Syrian town of Khan Shaykhun.

    news of the incident


    Russia Assad support not unconditional

    It appears that sarin (NATO designation GB) nerve gas was responsible for the deaths.
    I find this incident horrifying.

    Tillerson's actuall quote on Assad leaving:


    "The process by which Assad would leave is something that requires an international community effort both to first defeat ISIS within Syria, to stabilize the Syrian country to avoid further civil war and then to work collectively with our partners around the world through a political process that would lead to Assad leaving."

    This proves the US is a one party state, if more proof was ever needed. The exact same war mongering policy under Trump as under Clinton.
    A lot of people voted for Trump because he was sending the signal that he would not follow Killary's agenda. Clearly that was a bald faced lie.

    Uncle Scumbag is going to be shocked shitless once that bubble of delusion of all powerful might and invincibility derived from masturbatory
    propaganda and a record of attacking weak and small countries burst on the hard reality of Russia's real military capability. I know, this sounds
    like trash talk but America is all about trash talk.

    So apparently 50 US tomahawk missiles hit Shaerat air force base in Homs. Apparently Russia was informed long ahead of time.

    Apparently Russia was not informed and some stated Russians were present at the base. If Russians died, what will Putin do?

    Just had Trump press conference. He looks and sounds unbalanced. Claimed use of nerve agent, yet white helmets have been shown handling bodies of alleged victims with bare hands. TV went right back to ads. I swear they'll still be trying to sell insurance and other crap even as the nukes detonate.

    Despicable dirty Uh'Murikkkan cunts....

    The Syrian air force destroys a terrorist (AQ-affiliated) weapons facility that appears to have been used to manufacture & store sarin, so what does the US do?

    Attack Syria.....

    ^I'm an American, and I'll fully admit my government is the biggest scourge on this world. But remember, so are it's allies (vassals really), especially the so-called "five eyes". They're right there too, supporting whatever horrible shit the US government concocts.

    Too much conflicting information..... So apparently Russia was informed ahead of time but they were also present at the air force base, but they were specifically not targeted and majority of missiles just hit the same spot multiple of times.

    Still, this illegal move cannot go unnoticed. Russian lives were in danger regardless of warning of not. Russia must respond in kind to US airbase near Raqqa or by jamming Us warships in area.

    In real practice , 50 or 100 or even a thousand of cruise missiles will not defeat the syrian army at all , it will only delay their operations. Just remember than since Russia have been in Syria ,they bombed it no less than 50,000 times.
    and the war is far from over, and with more accurate bombings that American cruise missiles.


    But in the other hand this attacks are aimed at scaring Russia to leave ,
    to negotiate Assad departure or something of the like. It remains to be
    seen what they will do . whatever it is. .if Russia retreat just a little ,the
    americans will go for more and more and more. SO it will put at risk
    their entire operation. It will be priceless the response of Russia. what it will be .  If i was putin, i will give an ultimatum to Americans ,that will order the
    sinking of their warships if do another attack of Syria. that they have been warned.

    This also explain why trump was being cozy with CHina today ,he was seeking to keep them out of Syria and leave Russia alone. interesting times. Trump turned to be a real traitor to the american people who voted for him.

    In my opinion after the St petersburg attacks , Russia will not capitulate in
    Syria no matter how many cruise missiles they launch.

    Thank God, soldiers at Al-Shayrat said no casualties. No Russians hit. Most missiles struck the same area on the airfield.

    If the missiles were really fired this way, then these twitter reporters are not doing Syria any favours. They should hush it
    up if it looks like a ploy by Trump to fend off the hyenas around him and not a real attack.

    Russia can jam GPS..
    So its entirely possible.

    Again you cannot win a war with cruise missiles ,not even close..
    Russia on a daily basis how many times they bomb ISIS and Alqaeda positions? about 200-300 per day. this is in more than one year. You need troops on the ground to stop Syrian army and there the american military
    will be very vulnerable to be bombed by Russia and Syria. So all this attacks
    in real real practice is just testing Russia . to see if they can scare it.

    But i don't think RUssia will leave. it will be suicide not only for Putin political carrer ,but will be a green light to to NATO to continue doing more attacks and bomb directly Assad castle.

    What we see is rules of engagement. notice the aclaration of US military that no one was killed. If the attack was on Assad castle and many civilians killed
    it will have been a totally different story and Russia definitively allow Syrian
    government to sink american warships. Public Opinion is really important in incidents like this.
