The situation in Syria is deteriorating rapidly in Syria as the Assad government prepares for its final assault on Idlib, the last stronghold of the head amputating, journalist roasting, murdering, torturing, sex slave taking, raping, thieving, kiddie fiddling ISIS / Al Nusra extremists (better known perhaps as Barack Obama's beloved moderate rebels.) Russian jets have been bombarding rebel positions in Idlib Province as the Syrian Army initiates a ground invasion which Damascus has described as coming in a "phased" approach.
The White House responded to the Syrian and Russian bombing campaign by vowing it would act “swiftly and vigorously” should chemical weapons be used, conveniently forgetting that in other cases where the US has alleged the Assad regime has used gas against its own people, in efforts to justify direct intervention in Syria, Putin has faced down The Pentagon, while subsequent investigations by the independent OPCW (Organisation for the Prevention of Chemical Weapons) inspectors has found no evidence of the Assad government's involvement, and on the famous ocasion when the childbrain Barack Hussein Obama claimed he had irrefutable evidence that Assad was responsible for a poison gas incident, the inspectors found very strong evidence that the gas cannisters were fired by the rebels into a civilian area under the control of the Assad government. Furthermore the gas used was discovered to have originated in the USA.
Just a day ago US diplomats claimed there's “lots of evidence” chemical weapons are being prepared by the Syrian forces, citing intelligence of such activities. We remind you again that at the end of last month and early this month the Russian government was warning that a false flag gas attack was being prepared by US agents to justify interference in the final defeat of the CIA sponsored bid to oust Assad and replace him with a government beholden to the Islamic fundamentalist monarchy of Saudi Arabia. Readers should also bear in mind that as with previous allegations of illegal weapon use by the Syrian regime, the "US Intelligence" comes from the rebels themselves, hardly what a sane person would call a reliable source (although the mass murderer and war criminal Obama was happy to believe their every word.
America's top general has now confirmed the Pentagon is drawing up military options to attack Syria and is in currently in close discussion with the White House over the plans. Marine General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told reporters on Saturday during a trip to India, according to Reuters:
...he was involved in “routine dialogue” with the White House about military options should Syria ignore U.S. warnings against using chemical weapons in an expected assault on the enclave of Idlib.However, Gen. Dunford noted that no decision has been made to intervene militarily in response to Idlib. “But we are in a dialogue, a routine dialogue, with the president to make sure he knows where we are with regard to planning in the event that chemical weapons are used,” he told a group of reporters.
Dunford added in reference to his talks with President Trump: “He expects us to have military options and we have provided updates to him on the development of those military options.”
The fact that Russia has stationed a flotilla of warships in the eastern Mediterranean, off Syria, may influence the final decision of the Pentagon and the Department of Defense of course, as it has before.
Trump had previously bombed Syria twice after allegations that Assad ordered a chemical weapons attack — in April 2017 and April 2018 — the former was in response to a claimed sarin attack on Idlib.
White House officials have vowed to hold Assad responsible for any chemical attack allegations that emerge. Given that all previous allegations of chemical weapons use has not been proved, it seems to this publication the USA is simply desperate for war.
