URGENT: After Syria Chlorine Attack, Trump Calls Assad “Animal” – Says “Heavy Price to Pay” – Russian Military Assets being moved from Joint Bases; Air-Defenses Put on High Alert – UPDATE: Russia Deploying 77,000 Troops to Ukraine Border

Details

RUSSIA IS NOW DEPLOYING 77,000 TROOPS AND ALMOST 1,000 TANKS TO THE UKRAINE BORDER (SEE BOTTOM)

Thirteen and a half hours ago, at 9:07 PM eastern time on Saturday night, I warned my Subscribers that a Chlorine Gas attack had allegedly taken place in Syria, injuring over 1,000 and killing 161. I outlined why this appeared to be a FALSE FLAG attack designed to put blame on Syria President Bashar Assad, and justify a massive U.S. military attack directly against Syria.  I warned that people in the US government have been planning for a direct war with Russia and would use this alleged attack to induce/force a US military response DESPITE warnings from Russia that US missileS would be shot down and the ships launching them would be attacked.

As of 10:42 AM Sunday, it appears President Trump has “taken the bait.”  It appears that the US and its allies are speeding toward a massive military attack and that Russia is speeding toward a massive military response against the US.  Russian military assets are being hastily removed from Joint Bases in Syria – not because they might be targets or collateral damage—but rather to be used for a COUNTER-ATTACK against the US.

Russian air defenses in Syria, AND IN THE WESTERN MILITARY DISTRICT OF RUSSIA ITSELF have been placed on high alert.  US Military analysts have been up all night at the Pentagon and President Trump confirms he has been in discussions throughout the night with his National Security people.  It looks like we are quickly moving toward actual war this morning, which is Orthodox Easter for Russia. 

Trump Threatens Putin, “Animal Assad” Over Syrian “Chemical Attack”; Russia Warns Of “Grave” Response If US Launches Strike

RUSSIAN ASSETS BEING MOVED OUT OF JOINT BASES IN SYRIA

They don’t want them struck in a US attack. Makes sense considering that if the coalition strikes they’re not likely to be targets but could be collateral.

The other side of things are that they may indeed be targeted if the coalition believe that Russia will use them, and that is something I doubt the war planners would be wanting to do from the offset, but they will want to send a message; not in terms of that area being attacked by the USA, but in terms of Russians prepping for response with those assets to US forces

Russia Intel Source tells me precautionary measures are being taken in Syria but worse, in the next hours there is also likely to be such preparation in the Russian western military district in light of Trump’s provocative tweets.

UPDATE 10:54 AM EDT

TRUMP IN CONSTANT COMMUNICATION WITH ONGOING NATIONAL SECURITY TEAM MEETINGS IN PROGRESS – SPOKESMAN FOR WH

WE WILL NOT TAKE ANY RESPONSE OFF THE TABLE – WHITE HOUSE IN THE LAST FEW MINS
URGENT PENTAGON MEETINGS UNDERWAY – DISCUSSIONS WITH ALLIES IN PROGRESS

If President Obama had crossed his stated Red Line In The Sand, the Syrian disaster would have ended long ago! Animal Assad would have been history! -TRUMP

 (Editor’s Note): But WHY WHY WHY would Assad use chemicals NOW when he knows that we will be out of Syria very soon?  Surely President Trump is smart enough to ask this question and smart enough to know the answer, Assad wouldn’t. Someone sure wants us to stay in Syria.)

UPDATE 11:15 AM EDT

UK military in urgent meetings

Saudi Mohammed Bin Salman has landed in France to meet Macron.  Literally every Israeli politician is ordering the US to strike Syria ASAP. I have never seen the Israelis like this before. Something’s cooking for sure.

It appears the American MSM is still awaiting instructions on how to report on this situation. Nothing yet. We have to watch how it gets reported to better understand what we should expect.

RUSSIA SAYS IT WILL RESPOND MILITARILY TO AN AMERICAN ATTACK WARNS PRESIDENT TRUMP OF GRAVEST CONSEQUENCES OF AN ATTACK

The president’s senior national security cabinet have been talking with him all throughout the evening and this morning – Homeland Security Adviser, Bossert

UPDATE 11:23 AM EDT

Reports from my former Intelligence Community Colleagues inside several governments are telling me that if Trump goes ahead, the response will be much bigger than an airfield strike (LIKE LAST YEAR) and will aim to severely weaken the Assad regime, with shock and awe level strikes right across Assad’s locations and range of assets.

I am being told by very credible military people that this is on the table. Whether Trump attacks or attacks at that level remains to be seen. He may not attack or make a token response to save face

UPDATE 11:23 AM EDT

Reports from my former Intelligence Community Colleagues inside several governments are telling me that if Trump goes ahead, the response will be much bigger than an airfield strike (LIKE LAST YEAR) and will aim to severely weaken the Assad regime, with shock and awe level strikes right across Assad’s locations and range of assets.

I am being told by very credible military people that this is on the table. Whether Trump attacks or attacks at that level remains to be seen. He may not attack or make a token response to save face given his statements. However, the military have been ordered to prep for something huge should the red button be pressed. I am getting more and more worried as his tweets seemed belligerent this morning.

UPDATE 11:30 AM EDT…

There are changes now in alert status to some U.S. and U.K forces in the Middle East theatre (U.S. (CENTCOM).Not going in to details for obvious reasons

If you do not yet have the “Preps” that I have been telling you FOR MONTHS to have, it is now too late for you.  Here’s the list of suggested preps in case you have some chance to get some of them.

UPDATE 12: 40 PM EDT

U.S. military official confirms that the Pentagon could launch a potential regime attack against Syria. Trump will meet with his National Security Council today. 

(EDITOR’S NOTE): The fact this is taking place is astonishing.  In order to believe that Syria/Russia committed this chlorine gas attack, you’d have to believe that Russia and Syria are so stupid to have executed a false flag yesterday so that the US and our lackey states could destroy Syria. This would be like believing Russia and Syria are so stupid that just before the crossed the goal line for a winning Touchdown they mooned the stadium to enrage the fans and have them rush the field and prevent the score.   This Chlorine attack has “FALSE FLAG” written all over it.  We are apparently going to go to war based upon a deliberate lie.  God help us all.

The scariest thing for me: We have a bunch of murderers running our Government who have no problem arming and supporting known terrorist organizations in Syria. I can’t understand why our military continues to follow orders from these Neocon vermin, given that they are domestic enemies of the U.S. Constitution.

As soon as America and Russia are finished annihilating each other the islamic caliphate will sweep the globe. They gotta know this right.. Americans and Russians.  They gotta know this..)

SIGINT

Signals Intelligence (SiIGINT) indicates that Brigadier General Suheil al-Hassan of the Syrian Arab Army, personally transmitted the order to attack Ghouta with “all available weapons” in a radio transmission contained in the video below.  It is not known if the General received permission from President Assad to do this, but that no longer matters; the Intelligence Community says this is proof the Chlorine Gas attack was perpetrated by the Syrian Government.

Bio

Suheil as-Hassan, nicknamed The Tiger, is a Brigadier General  in the Syrian Army, currently serving as commander of its elite Tiger Forces.

He graduated from the Syrian Arab Air Force academy in 1991, and served in many units of the Syrian Arab Air Forces and Air Defense Command, completing several training courses. 

After serving in the Syrian Arab Air Force and Syrian Arab Air Defense units, he joined the Air Forces Intelligence Service, where he was responsible for the training of the elements of the Special Operations Section.

During the Syrian Civil War, Suheil al-Hassan has served and commanded his troops during several major engagements, including Operation Canopus Star and the battle for the Shaer gas field. He is part of the new generation of field Syrian army commanders who emerged during the civil war.

French newspaper Le Monde has claimed he could be a rival to Assad as leader of Syria.

 MOSCOW CALLS ‘CHEMICAL ATTACK’ IN DOUMA ‘FACE NEWS,’ WARNS AGAINST SYRIAN INTERVENTION

Published time: 8 Apr, 2018 15:23 Edited time: 8 Apr, 2018 17:06

https://www.rt.com/news/423524-douma-chemical-attack-fake-moscow/

COMMENTS BY DONALD TRUMP (America President Elect)

Many dead, including women and children, in mindless CHEMICAL attack in Syria. Area of atrocity is in lockdown and encircled by Syrian Army, making it completely inaccessible to outside world. President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible for backing Animal Assad. Big price… ….to pay. Open area immediately for medical help and verification. Another humanitarian disaster for no reason whatsoever. SICK!

11:04 PM – Apr 8, 2018

Reports of an alleged gas attack in the Syrian town of Douma are ‘fake news’ aimed at justifying potential strikes against Syria, Moscow said. It warned of “dire consequences” in the event of any military interference.

The Russian Foreign Ministry denounced the latest reports about a chemical attack that allegedly affected dozens of civilians in the militant-controlled town of Douma. It said the reports were another example of a “continuous series of fake news about the use of chlorine and other chemical agents by the government forces.”

The ministry pointed out that the source of the reports was the notorious “civil defense” group, the White Helmets, which has been repeatedly accused of having ties to terrorists, as well as other groups based in the US and UK.

Russia has warned about a false-flag chemical attack being prepared in the recent months, the ministry said. Those who are not interested in a genuine political settlement of the Syrian crisis are seeking to complicate the situation on the ground, it added.

“The goal of this… baseless speculation is to shield the terrorists and… the radical opposition that refuse to engage in a political settlement [process], as well as to justify potential military strikes from the outside,” the statement said. It then warned that any military interference in Syria conducted under “far-fetched or fabricated pretexts” would be “absolutely unacceptable” and could lead to “dire consequences.”

Meanwhile, the reports by various rebel-linked activists about the alleged chemical incident in Douma seem to have provoked yet another wave of hysteria in the West. US President Donald Trump rushed to denounce the unconfirmed attack as a “mindless” atrocity and a “humanitarian disaster for no reason whatsoever.” He also warned that those behind the alleged attack ‘will pay a big price.’

Accusations against the Syrian government and Russia soon followed. In his Twitter posts, Trump declared “President [Vladimir] Putin, Russia and Iran… responsible” for the attack because of their backing for Syrian President Bashar Assad. Earlier, the US State Department also said that “Russia ultimately bears responsibility for the brutal targeting of countless Syrians with chemical weapons.”

However, US officials admitted that they were unable to independently verify any information about the alleged incident and had to rely solely on “reports” made by rebel-linked sources.

The EU claimed on Sunday that there is “evidence” pointing to “another chemical attack” conducted by Damascus. It provided no specific details to substantiate the claim. Instead, the bloc called for an immediate “international response” and urged Russia and Iran to use their influence to prevent any similar incidents in future.

Damascus rejected the accusations, calling them “boring and inconclusive propaganda.” Only countries that “speculate on the blood of civilians and support terrorism in Syria” could be convinced by such reports, a Syrian Foreign Ministry official told SANA news agency. They pointed out that similar allegations emerge every time the Syrian Army makes advances in its fight against terrorists. The official added that Damascus had warned about a pre-planned false-flag attack.

Tehran has denounced statements made by US officials, describing them as “baseless accusations” that could be used as a pretext for military actions against the Syrian Army.

Meanwhile, the US administration appears to be already considering a potential response to the alleged chemical incident. “We’ll be reviewing the situation later today,” US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told CBS, commenting on a possible response. He refused to outline any particular options that are being considered, but said that Donald Trump and his national security team will be reviewing “all different alternatives.” Asked about the possibility of another US strike, the president’s Homeland Security Advisor Thomas Bossert said: “I wouldn’t take anything off the table.”

This is not the first time that reports of chemical attacks pinned on Damascus have surfaced on social media.

Moscow had warned that unconfirmed reports of atrocities and false-flag chemical incidents were likely to appear at a time when militant factions are losing ground in Syria. The latest report came as the Syrian Army pushed to liberate the remaining militant-occupied settlements in the Damascus suburb of Eastern Ghouta, with the city of Douma being the last such city in the area.

It comes as Jaysh al-Islam militants holding the city of Douma reportedly held talks with government forces and agreed to leave the enclave. Damascus said on March 31 that nearly all militant-held settlements in Ghouta were liberated, and a major Syrian highway had been cleared after a seven-year militant blockade.

In February 2018, Syrian troops began the operation to retake the area that has been under militant control since 2012, and Russia brokered the creation of humanitarian corridors to allow locals to escape the siege. A total of 153,240 people have left the area through humanitarian corridors since the start of the operation, according to the Russian Defense Ministry’s Center for Syrian Reconciliation.

 FORGET ABOUT GAZA, BOMB ASSAD! ISRAELI HAWKS URGE US TO STRIKE SYRIA OVER DOUMA ‘CHEM ATTACK’

https://www.rt.com/news/423532-israel-syria-strike-us/

Israeli officials have called on the US to attack the Syrian Army, following what they called a “shocking attack” in Douma. Israel’s own crackdown on Gaza protesters was “self-defense” and not worthy of attention, they said.

Washington must launch a strike against Damascus in response to the alleged chemical attack in the city of Douma, the Israeli Strategic Affairs and Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan told the Army Radio on Sunday, commenting on the reports coming from anti-government groups in Syria. Erdan also said he personally hopes that the US would take military action against the Syrian government, which he blamed for the attack, the Jerusalem Post reports. The minister added that the Douma incident shows the “need” for a US troop buildup in Syria.

The Israeli construction minister and former IDF major general, Yoav Galant, went even further and called for a military strike aimed directly against the Syrian president. “[Bashar] Assad is the angel of death, and the world would be better without him,” Galant said. The Israeli opposition leader Isaac Herzog called on the US to take “decisive military action” against Syria.

At the same time, Israeli officials were apparently uncomfortable with the international community paying unwanted attention to developments in Gaza. Dozens of Palestinian protesters were killed by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) during mass protests in the Gaza Strip – but Erdan says the global community has been looking in the wrong direction.

“The shocking attack shows the incredible international hypocrisy of the international community focusing on Israel confronting the terrorist organization Hamas that is sending civilians to our [border] fence, when dozens are being killed in Syria every day,” he said.

The Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman also slammed the international community, for what he called willful ignorance of the human tragedies in Syria and other countries, and unjust criticism of Israel’s actions. The minister said in particular that the world was “complacent” about the deaths of civilians in Syria, all while condemning the IDF for killing Palestinians “in self-defense.”

At the same time, Lieberman did not rule out Israel’s own intervention in the Syrian conflict. “I always operate on the assumption that, at the end of the day, Israel has to deal alone with both the northern threat and the southern threat,” he told the Israeli KANN radio, when asked about the developments in Syria. He also criticized US President Donald Trump’s recent statements concerning the potential US troop withdrawal from Syria, by saying that “President Trump didn’t ask” him for an opinion on the matter.

The idea of Israel’s intervention in Syria was supported by the Israeli Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef, who called developments in the Middle Eastern country a “genocide … in its cruelest form.” “We have a moral obligation not to keep quiet and to try and stop this massacre,” he said, as cited by the Times of Israel.

On Saturday, a number of rebel-linked groups, including the notorious “civil defense” group White Helmets, accused the Syrian government of carrying out a chemical attack that allegedly affected dozens of civilians in Eastern Ghouta’s town of Douma. The reports have provoked a wave of outrage in the West, as the US and the EU rushed to put the blame for the as-yet unverified incident on Damascus and Moscow.

Both Syria and Russia dismissed the accusations and called the reports fake news, aimed at helping extremists and justifying potential strikes against Syrian forces.

The statements of the Israeli officials come at a time when IDF are engaged in a brutal crackdown on the Palestinian protesters in Gaza. The protests began on March 30 and are expected to continue up until May 15, which, for Palestinians, marks the forced mass exodus from their land during the establishment of the state of Israel. Israelis celebrate it as Independence Day.
