US Missile Attack On Syria A Show Of Force – Russian Foreign Ministry

BATTLEFORWORLD – April 6, 2017: Hours before President Trump ordered airstrikes on Syria, Hillary Clinton called for bombing of Syrian airfields. Coincidence?  President Trump’s momentum is slipping away and he’s morphing into what he said that he would not become, a war president. He’s becoming infected with Hillary’s hawkish mindset.  Yes, she’s back (like a bad dream from ‘A Nightmare On Elm Street’) to give Trump ‘ahead of time’ instructions in foreign policy. The Rothschilds/globalists and the Deep-State (also known as The Military Industrial Complex) spooks are getting into his head and he will be manipulated to the nth degree to fulfill their goals. If Trump keeps resisting, he will be assaulted with more fake-news/lies, but if he obeys, they all disappear. Psychological info-war against the American people by the corporate media.

US Missile Attack On Syria A Show Of Force – Russian Foreign Ministry

SPUTNIKNEW – April 7, 2017: US attack in Syria is nothing else than a show of force, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Friday. The decision to attack Syria was made ahead of Idlib chmical incident, used as a pretext for this demonstration of strength. The US missile strikes on Syria airfield is a clear act of aggression against sovereign Syria.

It is obvious that the US missile attack in Syria was prepared “in advance,” the Russian Foreign Ministry stated. “It is clear that the decision to conduct the strike [in Syria] was made in Washington before the incident in Idlib, which was used as a pretext for this demonstration of strength,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

The US missile attack on the Sha’irat airfield in Syria further degrades Russian-US relations, the Russian Foreign Ministry added. “Without bothering to figure anything out, the US moved toward a demonstration of strength, to military resistance against a country that is fighting international terrorism,” the ministry said.

US Syria Airstrike Like Alice In Wonderland, ‘First The Verdict, Then The Facts’

SPUTNIKNEWS – April 7, 2017: In a serious setback to the promise of an impending peace process in Syria, the United States have hit a Syrian airbase alleged to have carried out a chemical attack on a rebel held town, without any proper investigation of the incident.

Former US Congressman Dennis Kucinich, compares the US reaction to Alice in Wonderland: “There is a scene where there is a judgement taking place and someone shouts out: ‘first the verdict, then the facts!’ And this is what’s happening right now — the verdict is being rendered without an inquiry, without any effort to find out what the facts are. It’s very suspicious,” he said. And pointed out that US action in Syria is a violation of international law. “Any strike upon Syria would compound that and would violate the UN Charter…that do not provide for any excuse for aggressive warfare. Additionally, the US Congress has not authorized any military action. The President cannot establish that Syria is a threat to national security of the US,” said Kucinich.

And the former British Ambassador to Syria, Peter Ford, the real scandal is that: “…the British government no longer appears to care about terrorist groups holding stocks of chemical weapons like sarin. …It seems quite possible that the reason for the explosion was that a chemical weapons dump was bombed by the Syrian Air Force.  These dangerous chemicals [are] being held by jihadi groups. …In fact, the likely explanation than the claim that the Syrian Air Force bombed with chemical weapons.

“If this is true than it’s an absolute scandal that the British government is excusing the possession by al-Qaeda-related groups of sarin! Not long ago the British government claimed that it was a top priority to prevent sarin and similar products falling into the hands of terrorist groups! And yet here we have the British government excusing their possession and trying to shift the blame onto others. This is the real scandal.” Link: Read Complete Article
