Russia to Sink an American Destroyer in Retaliation for Child Abductions in Idlib

USS The Sullivans targeted for its support of ISIS


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.

  1. May I also recommend “The cruel sea”, a british movie about convoy escort duty in the north atlantic. Pretty accurate.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. but what’s the logic of the western leaders , basically it seems the western people are saying that IF ” Assad ” uses Chemical weapons to Kill Syrian Civilians then we the west will Kill the Sryian government ,,,, both being Syrians so whats the difference and the west seems to be bent/eager to Kill People in Syria and these poor Syrians were living nice peaceful lives about 8 years ago not knowing this was to happen out of nowhere and then McCain was seen in Syria and then only Syria was Fvked ….

  5. Syria gave up Chemical weapons under UNO Supervision but that’s a fact that is rarely mentionned

    With All the idiocies and meddling USA is doing across the globe and especially in Syria I think it is indeed high time to Sink a crappy boat of Zionist Mercinaries to gave Americans a taste of their own medicine

    Surely Russian ships can cripple the onboard AEGIS system and then hit the crap out of it like Isreal did to USS Liberty ,,,,, after the hit by Israel a recently built ship USS Liberty was scrapped , had too too many holes in it .

    • 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.

    • BTW this Child Abduction , the specialty of these ” White Helmets of Syria ” , is a nasty business which shows the indifference of the coldblooded killers who kindap and even Kill little Children for political or Financial gain is a truely shameful lowest level of this two legged creeps called ” White Helmets of Syria ” …… just to serve foreign interestes in Syria the ” White Helmets of Syria ” Kindap and record their reels while killing the kidnapped children , even kids are not safe from these psychopaths ….

  6. 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?
