Sergey Lavrov reiterated the warning that a staged chemical weapons attack in Syria’s Idlib province may trigger a US-led attack on the forces loyal to Damascus.

“A new provocation is being prepared by the West to hamper the anti-terrorist operation in Idlib,” Lavrov said during a joint media conference with his Syrian counterpart, Walid Muallem. “We have facts on the table and have issued a strong warning to our Western partners through our Defense Ministry and our Foreign Ministry not to play with fire.”
Earlier, the Russian military reported that a group of militants in Syria was preparing a provocation, in which chlorine gas would be used to frame the Syrian government forces. The incident would be used by the US and its allies to justify a new attack against the country, similar to what happened in April, according to the claim.
Amid international tensions, Russia has launched a massive naval exercise in the Mediterranean Sea, which involves 25 ships and 30 aircraft, including Tu-160 strategic bombers.
The US earlier stated that it would retaliate to a possible a chemical attack by the Syrian government, using more firepower than it did in April. The previous tripartite strike by the US, the UK and France targeted what they called sites involved in chemical weapons research. It came in response to an alleged use of an improvised chlorine bomb against a militant-held area. Russia insists that the incident had been staged with the goal of triggering the Western response.

The greatest war movie of all time is taking place now,
“The US attacks the World”
May I also recommend “The cruel sea”, a british movie about convoy escort duty in the north atlantic. Pretty accurate.
Fifteen years after the attack, an Israeli pilot approached Liberty survivors and then held extensive interviews with former Congressman Paul N. (Pete) McCloskey about his role. According to this senior Israeli lead pilot, he recognized the Liberty as American immediately, so informed his headquarters, and was told to ignore the American flag and continue his attack. He refused to do so and returned to base, where he was arrested.
Later, a dual-citizen Israeli major told survivors that he was in an Israeli war room where he heard that pilot’s radio report. The attacking pilots and everyone in the Israeli war room knew that they were attacking an American ship, the major said. He recanted the statement only after he received threatening phone calls from Israel.
The pilot’s protests also were heard by radio monitors in the U.S. Embassy in Lebanon. Then-U.S. Ambassador to Lebanon Dwight Porter has confirmed this. Porter told his story to syndicated columnists Rowland Evans and Robert Novak and offered to submit to further questioning by authorities. Unfortunately, no one in the U.S. government has any interest in hearing these first-person accounts of Israeli treachery
Just isolate sanction or destroy political entity called UK (i call it shit and menace) and the rest of the world will soon gradually recover from global terrorism. The mountains of media lies will stop and the NATO sinister backbone will be sucked dry together with their idiot french supporters.
That’s the whole point echoes. “They” are hoping and praying that the destroyer will be sunk with great loss of life, then the pre-arranged war drums will beat on every tv and radio and the real show will kick off. The Sullivans is being hung out to dry, or to use a local analogy, it is a goat being staked out for the lion to kill and itself be ambushed. Also don’t rule out an “accidental” explosion in the forward magazine to make it look like a hit from the Russians. These people are not above that, in fact they have done it before.
Can Russia sink a US war ship and still turn its back on Syria and Iran in return for the bump in oil prices from the tariffs?
