1 Trump Airstrike.
Last night President Donald Trump caved into Pentagon, the political left, the Neoconservative pro-war lobby and mainstream media pressure to act after the release of YouTube videos produced by the US and UK-funded NGO the White Helmets – of an alleged ‘chemical weapons’ attack by the Syria Airforce in the al Qaeda stronghold of Idlib in Syria. 

Following the US missile strike, Al Qaeda leaders in Syria have hailed the move by Trump, expressing their gratitude for the US President’s knee-jerk military action.

Al Qaeda and ISIS supporters Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey have also expressed thanks to Trump for helping to degrade the Syrian military who have been fighting and winning against al Qaeda in Syria, ISIS and a host of other Gulf-sponsored terrorist groups operating in Syria.

Trump’s strike on Syria also helped ISIS who have been losing to the Syrian Army recent in the area of Homs and Palmyra.

The Guardian confirms:

  • The US has launched a missile strike against Syria, targeting al-Shayrat airbase close to Homs, from where it said this week’s sarin nerve gas attack on Khan Sheikhun was launched.
  • The Pentagon said 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles were launched from warships USS Ross and Porter in the eastern Mediterranean in the early hours of Friday morning, Syria time.
  • Unconfirmed reports from Homs province said the airbase was destroyed, and some personnel killed. Some reports said senior officers had evacuated the base before the airstrikes happened.
  • Donald Trump said the strike was a direct response to the chemical weapons attack that killed more than 70 people:

“Tonight I ordered a targeted military strike on the airfield in Syriafrom where the chemical attack was launched.

It is in this vital national security interest of the United States to prevent and deter the spread and use of deadly chemical weapons.

There can be no dispute that Syria used banned chemical weapons, violated its obligations under the chemical weapons convention, and ignored the urging of the UN security council.

Years of previous attempts at changing Assad’s behaviour have all failed and failed very dramatically.”

There was an angry response in Russia, where the Kremlin warned that the strikes would cause “significant damage to US-Russia ties”.

NOTE: Tillerson has now gone so far as to blame Russia for ‘allowing’ Syria to mount this attack…

“They would act as the guarantor that these weapons would no longer be present in Syria. Clearly Russia has failed in its responsibility to deliver on that commitment from 2013.”

Either Russia has been complicit or Russia has been simply incompetent in its ability to deliver on its end of that agreement.”

Despite the fact that no evidence, other than YouTube videos, that the Syrian government launched a chemical airstrikes in Idlib, the US government and the mainstream media are ignoring multiple evidential reports of “Rebels” (terrorists) holding and using chemical weapons in Syria.
