Eve of Destruction? Russia prepared to militarily respond to any US strike on Syria

Syria and Russia are prepared for the US strike and will fight back


Editor’s note: We have never been closer to WW3 than we are right now as we await Trump’s strike on Syria and the seemingly inevitable Russian and Syrian reaction to it.

Russia is more than capable of sending a US carrier group to the bottom of the Mediterranean and it may just do so if, as seems highly likely, Russian personnel are among the targets of the US strike.

The insanity of the agenda Trump is following lies in the fact that previous incidents have shown that the US military do not hold any clear advantage and may actually be at a disadvantage in technical terms, meaning should the shooting start, a lot of US servicemen are going to become victims of the insanity.

Last year’s cruise missile attack on Syria was an abject failure as the Russian and Syrian defences were able to shoot down or decoy most of the missiles, then there is the fact that the USS Donald Cook, currently loitering off the Syrian coast is the same ship that had to be towed away from the Crimean coast in 2014 after being disabled by Russian warplanes carrying some new electronic weaponry.

So unless the US military has some new trick up it’s sleeve we don’t know about, it seems highly likely that should Trump strike, it will not go too well and that opens up a whole nasty can of worms as are as escalation of the conflict – if your conventional weapons don’t do the job, then the next step might be to try some tactical nukes and the Russians also have lots of those and the aircraft and missiles to deliver them so the US has no advantage in that area either.

Sadly, there is no-one around Trump who might become a voice of reason and restrain the buffoon from doing what he was put in office to do and this is carry out the orders of a bunch of criminal oligarchs hell-bent on the destruction of Putin and Russia…. Ian Greenhalgh

Syrian, Russian jets crowd Syria’s coastal provinces in response to US threats

BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 A.M.) – The Syrian and Russian air forces have been conducting a large number of flights along the Syrian coast in response to the U.S.’ latest threat of force against the government in Damascus.

According to a military source in the Latakia Governorate, Syrian and Russian jets have been conducting nonstop flights along Syria’s coast since 6:00 A.M. (Damascus Time), with both air forces sharing the Hmaymim Airport in Jableh.

The source added that the Syrian Air Force has moved several jets to the Russian operated Hmaymim Airport in southwest Latakia.

The reason for the Syrian Air Force moving their jets to the Hmaymim Airport is due to the threat posed by the possible U.S. attack on their military installations.

Similar to the precautionary measures they took before the U.S. attack last year, the Syrian Air Force is attempting to protect their air assets by moving them to the Russian base.

Russia to respond instantly, if its troops in Syria hit by US strike

First deputy chairman of the Russian upper house’s Defense Committee, Yevgeny Serebrennikov said Wednesday that Russia will respond immediately if its military in Syria gets hit by a possible US airstrike.

Russia’s Hmeymim airbase and Tartus naval base, as well as Russian servicemen deployed in Syria, are under firm protection as the United States is anticipated to carry out airstrikes in Syria in response to an alleged chemical weapon attack in the city of Douma, Serebrennikov, told Sputnik.

“As the Defense Ministry has already pointed out, the Russian military bases in Hmeymim and Tartus are under firm protection. At the same time, we expect that in the event of US strikes, if any, the lives of our servicemen will not be in danger. I think that the United States understands this and will not allow it, because otherwise, Russia’s response will be immediate, as the chief of the Russian General Staff has said,” Serebrennikov said.

Last week, several Syrian opposition online media outlets reported, citing militants that the Syrian Army had used chlorine in the town of Douma and killed up to 70 people.

Following the reports, a number of states, including the US, accused Damascus of staging the attack. Furthermore, the United States said that it was considering all potential options in response to it.

Russian military will respond to any US aggression in Syria

BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:40 A.M.) – The Russian Ambassador to Lebanon Alexander Zaspikin told Al-Manar TV on Tuesday that his country’s forces will respond militarily to any U.S. attack in Syria.

Zaspikin stressed that the Russian forces will confront any US aggression on Syria, by intercepting the missiles and striking their launch pads.

The Russian diplomat added that the U.S. is using these allegations of chemical weapons use to justify their attacks in Syria.

Recently, the Russian military has conducted flights along the Syrian coast, while also jamming U.S. drones flying over the government’s positions.

No airplanes flying over Syria after warning of US airstrikes

BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:45 A.M.) – No airplanes are currently flying over Syria after reports from the EASA warned about potential airstrikes over the country.

According to the website Flight Aware, two Middle East Airlines (national airline of Lebanon) flights are expected to fly over Syria, despite the warnings form the EASA.

One of the MEA flights is scheduled to fly to the Saudi Arabian city of Madina and another is bound for Dubai; these two airplanes are the only known flights that will be using Syrian airspace in the next few hours.

The Syrian Air Defense is currently on high alert, as they await the U.S.’ decision on whether or not they will attack.

  1. I haven’t seen any news items about it but I wonder if the multimillionaires and multibillionaires are on their private jets headed for their doomsteads in New Zealand. If they were would it make the news? Or would it be suppressed so as not to inform us proles how dire the situation really is?

  2. Good to hear you are still online Ian. I was afraid that VT had gone dark, and everyone was underground. The Donald Duck is most likely the bait. I doubt they have sufficiently retrofitted her in the short time between now and the Black Sea incident. I would bet the press releases have already been made about those poor martyred sailors on the dead duck. ALAS BABLYON

  3. It seems that the globalists are at a desperation point. The lies are absurd and so transparent. Anyone with a pulse knows the gas attack is a false flag. Does Trump really want to be labelled the man who started WW3. Unfortunately there is rational advisors in the Whitehouse who sees the consequences of bombing Syria again. Putin has done everything possible diplomatically, and to restrain himself and warn Trump of the consequences of an attack on Syria.
    Trump has to understand this is not real estate brinkmanship but nuclear war and the end of humanity we are talking about. Nobody takes Trump’s outrage at a false flag chem attack seriously. The US human rights record is checked in spite of what nutty Nikki Haley says. They are buddies with Israel who is on an ethnic cleansing campaign in Palestine and buddies with Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, both of which have terrible human rights records.
    Should war begin and China and Russia prevail, I hope there is a Nuremberg trial for the perpetrators of an attack on Syria. My prayers go out to Mr. Putin that he is protected by God and to all of humanity who will be the victims.

    • Rational advisors in the Whitehouse who sees the consequences of bombing Syria again resigned like Michael Anton recently….

  4. After the Sitting Duck incident in the Black Sea the US refurbished its fleet with fiber-optic cables so its electronics wouldnt be compromised.

    A futile solution considering the dire perils arrayed against it by the latest Russian weapons.

  5. Trump’s twitt…. “Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!”..”
    I sharing with all of you folks from my own high level secret sources the new and secret Trump’s “smart” missil…

  6. Theater of the absurd. where’s Camus when he is needed. It’s all a out the oil. For all of you who may of had doubts just take a look at a map of the pie known as Syria. America has taken the best piece of the pie and, holy cow Batman, it’s a filled with oil.
    The oil giants are spoiled. For years they had it their way, with their mercenary armies holding the fields showing the skill to operate them, siphoning millions of barrels each month. The big oil Barrons aren’t going to give this up without a fight. They will fight to the death, but not theirs but l, our’s.

  7. Never forget the Liberty!

    What a great chance for Israel to do it again, this time the Donald Cook. Russia will do the same electronic manouvers it already showed us in the Black sea. Then The Donald Cook will be renamed by Israel into “Sitting Duck”!

    We can only pray to God this time.

    • Zionist entity criminal regime can disable ship defense and made fake attack against Donald Duck hacking first Command Information Center ship with access keys delivery for free by your traitors inside The Pentagon… and them Trump’s blame Russians did it !!!

  8. Trump is flying under the false flag of Truth, Integrity, Honor knowing the entire episode is based on lies and deliberate obfuscation. The ‘eye of opportunity’ has been lost by now as the Allied narrative is beginning to crumble within NATO, UK ranks where the word ‘verification’ has suddenly come into play. Maybe the word reality has struck home as to the enormity of Trump’s stupidity egged on by petty and woefully exposed Israel. Rest assured, at the end of any day, there is a God and right now Trump has riled Him to a sure-fire slap-down coming soon to a screen near you. What else would one expect with a 9/11 stalwart in Bolton – up to his neck in the murder of 3,000 American citizens, brought back to be a side-kick to what may well prove a more than impressive Russian side show with pay-back in rubble – heaps of it, and all existing reputations take a well-deserved tumble in the dust. Oh, yes, “Sceptre and crown must tumble down, and in the dust be equal made, with the poor crooked scythe and spade.”

  9. Ha… Russian MoD announced that it starts military drills, naval and aero in aquatory near Syria. The region of Mediterrainian Sea will be closed for all since 11 april. 11-12, 17-19, 25-26 april since 10 am till 18 pm by msk.

  10. I’m afraid they may bring Donald Cook as a victim or a prey. In order to proclaim a direct Russian aggression and have hands untied to make massive strike over Syria. Cook may launch “axes” and be hit back by Russia. Just imagine what deep state will start to do and say…
    Watching debates in UNO we can mention that US representative’s (for example Nikki Haley) language transformed into degradation. Even during cold war there were no such words used between USA & USSR. The diplomatic language turned into a hobo’s speech, under the Brooklin bridge.

    • Khalid, I saw Nikki whoring at the AIPAC conference 🤢🤮.

      AIPAC should have been registered under the Foreign Agent Registration Act since their inception, but sadly, when Kennedy tried to register their predecessor, (American Zionist Council) he got his head blown off. Nobody has tried since…
