    It cannot be stressed enough how important the next 24-48 hours will be. The US and allied governments like the #French have the ability to strike strategic targets in #Syria at almost the drop of a hat, followed up by potential strikes from B-2 bombers and other heavy assets.

    And the Syrian government invited Russia into their country so Russia does have legitimate business being there. We on the other hand have no legitimate business being in another sovereign country without invite. If someone did that to us we would think that we were being invaded wouldn't we?

    Au contraire - the elected Syrian government invited the Russian military into Syria, to assist them in their civil war - they did NOT invite the western forces onto Syrian sovereign soil - in fact, the elected Syrian government has explicitly requested that western forces LEAVE Syrian sovereign soil - thus far, western forces have thumbed their noses at the elected Syrian government's request.

    The Kurds are not an internationally recognized sovereign entity/country - Syria, is.

    Supporting the Kurds, living upon Syrian sovereign soil would be similar to Syria supporting American citizen radial leftists IN CONUS, with Syrian military assets positioned on U.S. sovereign soil - wouldn't allow that, would we.

    A Tomahawk is a fairly easy target for a fighter plane. Especially if they are expecting them and are ready.
    The ship firing them is an even easier target.
    I would be embarrassing as hell if most of them are shot down before they get to their target and the American DDG is not able to successfully fend off a dozen cruise missiles and torpedoes fired at it, after or while they are launching.
    I'm thinking there is a sub there somewhere in the mix.

    4 Breaking: Russian military blocks signals from US drones in Syria

    The Russian military has been scrambling some US military drones performing in Syria, seriously disrupting American military operations, the channel NBC announced, citing anonymous US officials.

    According to US officials, the Russians had started blocking some smaller US drones several weeks ago after a “series of alleged chemical weapons attacks on civilians in Eastern Ghouta.”

    The NBC network’s sources stated that the Russian military was concerned that the US military would take revenge for the attacks and began jamming the GPS systems of the drones operating in the area.

    “GPS receivers in most drones can be fairly easily jammed,” Dr. Todd Humphreys, the director of the Radionavigation Laboratory at the University of Texas at Austin said.

    The Defense Department can’t certainly state whether the jamming is the cause of drones crashing, according to the operational security.

    “The US military maintains sufficient countermeasures and protections to ensure the safety of our manned and unmanned aircraft, our forces and the missions they support,” said Pentagon spokesman Eric Pahon. https://www.almasdarnews.com/article...ones-in-syria/

    3 Pentagon outraged: Russians intercept US drones above Syria

    US TV channel Fox News has recently reported that Russian aircraft intercepted elusive US MQ-1 Predator drones in the Syrian Sky three times. After the first incident of interception, Pentagon officials said that that Russians were just lucky. However, two other incidents occurred soon afterwards, although the Russian aircraft did not try to down the unmanned aerial vehicles, but simulated interception instead.
    Fox News said that the incidents occurred above the ISIS-controlled territory of Syria, above the "capital" of The Islamic State - the city of Rakka, near the Turkish-Syrian border, not far from Kobani and Aleppo.

    A specialized military publication confirmed in 2014 that Russian anti-aircraft troops forced a US military drone to land during the time of the Crimean crisis and referendum in March 2014.

    "The Ukrainian side tried to organize aerial reconnaissance above the Crimea with the use of unmanned aerial vehicles. The latter were part of the 66th military reconnaissance brigade headquartered in Bavaria, Germany, and deployed in Kirovograd, Ukraine. Yet, neither the US nor Ukraine managed to keep the Crimea and Russia's Black Sea Navy under control.

    "As a result if the measures taken, two Israeli-made unmanned drones, MQ-5B Hunter, were intercepted. One of them was downed by militia forces on March 10, another one was forced to land with the help of a Russian ground-based radio technical reconnaissance system Avtobaza," Russian military officials said.

    Earlier, the bureau of journalistic investigation reported that in sixty percent of cases, US drones attack and bomb buildings. According to Washington's Blog, up to 90 percent of victims of American drone attacks are civilians.

    4 Russia to take tit-for-tat steps should US strike Syria, senior MP warns

    MOSCOW, April 10. /TASS/. Russia will take all political, diplomatic and military retaliatory measures if necessary should the United States deliver a strike on Syria, Russian State Duma (lower house of parliament) Defense Committee Chairman and former Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Airborne Troops Vladimir Shamanov said on Tuesday.

    "The politics of double standards have hit rock bottom. And here the United Russia party conscientiously states that all political, diplomatic and military measures if necessary will be taken. No illegal action will remain unanswered," Shamanov vowed at a plenary meeting of the State Duma.

    The senior MP was indignant over US President Donald Trump’s statement about Washington’s response within 48 hours, saying: "They should not pin their hopes on their naval task forces and their deceptions. We are a sovereign country and we have allies and guarantors for those events taking place in Syria. We won’t let the Americans hammer nails on someone else’s anvil."


    US President says 'a lot of options militarily' on Syria’s Douma situation
    Shamanov stressed that Russia's possible measures need to be considered and responsible. He also emphasized that the report on the alleged chemical attack in Syria’s Douma is absolute provocation.

    "Today military chemists have confirmed in the presence of members of Syria’s administration that no traces were found in the hospital where these fakes were made, and no victims have been confirmed and discovered," he noted.

    The lawmaker said the number of countries taking part in the Syrian conflict has increased. "In total violation of international rules, a couple of Israeli jets entered Lebanese airspace, delivered a strike on a neighboring sovereign country…directly on an airfield of the Syrian army. So, the number of countries involved in the conflict is rising."

    Israel launched the strike without notifying Russia through the channels of the Russian General Staff or the Foreign Ministry, he said.

    Syrian crisis
    US President Donald Trump said on Monday he would make a decision on how Washington would respond to the suspected chemical attack in Syria’s Douma in 24 to 48 hours.

    On April 7, a number of NGOs, including the White Helmets, alleged that chemical weapons were used in Douma, a suburb of the Syrian capital. According to the statement published on the organization’s website on April 8, chlorine bombs had been dropped on the locality, killing dozens and poisoning many locals who had to be brought to the hospital.


    On Sunday, the Russian Foreign Ministry rejected Saturday’s reports as fake news regarding the alleged chemical attack carried out by the Syrian government forces in Douma near Damascus. Allegations about the use of chemical agents by Syrian state forces are aimed at justifying external military strikes, the ministry said.

    Two F-15 aircraft from the Israeli Air Force delivered a strike with eight missiles against Syria’s T-4 airfield in the Homs province on Monday, the Russian Defense Ministry said. The Syrian air defenses destroyed five of the eight launched missiles, while the remaining three managed to hit the western part of the airfield. No Russian advisers are among the casualties.

    Syria blamed Israel for the missile strike on the military airfield.

    Seems like tonight or tomorrow night we're looking at some kind of American/British/French strike against Syria (read that British airbase is Cypress as been very active) ... so what happens when the shooting starts? How does Syria/Russia respond if at all? Does China become involved? Does the Iranian/Saudi Arabian proxy fight go hot because of this?

    This is crazy! It's very possible we see a few hours of action and everything settles down and the status quo resumes (like a year ago) but it's crazy to think we could be on the verge of an East Block vs West/NATO world war!

    I think the U.S. is going to strike ... maybe the past 48 hours have seen a flurry of activity behind the scenes where what we get is a western show of force against targets the Russians "approve" of where Russian troops are out of harms way. The Syrian's may lose a few assets but for the most part nothing changes on the ground and all the players resume their role the next day as if nothing happened. Akin to what happened last April albeit maybe a bit larger a show of force.

    Beats a clash of nuclear powers.

    things could pop before any Syrian action is even taken - Russia undoubtedly plans on preempting if possible - if Russia intends to stop either Tomahawk launches by destroyer and/or subs - could get interesting today already ....

    This is valid ... they are making the assumption that this is going to be a one off event.

    It think it's safe to assume that the probability is high that we are going to launch a strike. All the bluster from Washington, the President cancelling his first trip to South America to over see our response in Syria, etc. seem to telegraph that we're going to do something. The markets are betting that is is a rerun of last April ... a few hours of fireworks and life goes on.

    The question is Russia (and the Syrians to a lesser extent). They have forces in theater and they do get a vote in all this. Hopefully they stand aside and nothing happens ... but there is risk. And in the follow the money game .... on their side, aren't their markets dropping fast lately?

    Odds are that this is a strike that amounts to nothing BUT there is risk here. There are alot of foreign forces and alot of tension in this part of the world.

    The U.S. has requested the @UN Security Council vote at 3 p.m. today on a proposal for a new inquiry on the use of #ChemicalWeapons in #Syria after reports of a gas attack on a rebel-held town, diplomats said.

    The resolution would likely be vetoed by Syrian ally #Russia. A resolution needs nine votes in favor and no vetoes by #Russia , #China , #France , #Britain or the United States to pass.

So, the number of countries involved in the conflict is rising."

    Last time this happened--didn't an INDEPENDENT group of INTERNATIONAL scientists / observers come in to VERITY whether there'd been an attack? And iirc, they found NO support for their having been a chemical attack, and the media quickly buried the whole story and it went away.

    Can't the President just call for a UN group--or even just an American group---to go in and see if this was REAL? To defuse the situation?

    But---oh, yeah---as a member pointed out about a week ago---we expelled one another's ambassadors, so our two countries are no longer "talking" to one another directly.

    The only talking we are doing is via grandiose (and bellicose) public statements delivered at the UN or carried by the media.


    As that member observed, when countries stop talking to one another, that is a VERY dangerous situation.

    they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved….for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie….
    Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
