Russia, Syria on red alert after Trump threatens war in tweets

Both the Syrian and Russian air forces have been put on red alert after US President Donald Trump directly threatened Syria, Iran and Russia in a series of tweets.

Published: April 9, 2018, 3:12 am

    According to Trump, Russia and Syria will soon have a “big price to pay” for a “chemical weapon attack” on terrorist-held Duma in Syria’s East Ghouta.

    The American president’s war threats are backed by zero evidence that the Syrian government was responsible for such an attack.

    The general public are once more told by the Anglo media to believe that each time the US pulls back from their war on Syria, the Syrian government launches a “chemical attack” to pull them back in.

    The US State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said that there needs to be “an immediate response” against Syria for attacks that occurred in the East Ghouta town that is occupied by the Jaish al-Islam terrorist group.

    “Reports from a number of contacts and medical personnel on the ground indicate a potentially high number of casualties, including among families hiding in shelters. These reports, if confirmed, are horrifying and demand an immediate response by the international community,” Nauert said in a press release.

    White House Homeland Security and Counterterrorism Adviser Thomas Bossert told ABC’s “This Week” that he would not “take anything off the table” with Syria.

    Russia has dismissed the allegations as fake news.

    The source of the fake news is once again the White Helmets, a foreign entity largely funded by Britain.

    Former weapons inspector Scott Ritter has described in detail how the White Helmets are not actually trained for any rescue work. As an expert in Hazardous Materials handling with New York Task Force 2 USAR team, Ritter reported that “these videos represent de facto evidence of dangerous incompetence or, worse, fraud”.

    Ritter added: “In my opinion, the videos are pure theater, either staged to impress an unwitting audience, or actually conducted with total disregard for the wellbeing of any real victims.”

    Perhaps the most serious charge against the White Helmets is the evidence that they actively participated in war atrocities in Syria carried out by their al-Nusra hosts.

    There have been numerous photos of the White Helmets operating directly with armed terrorists and also celebrating over the bodies of execution victims.
