Neocon Trump regime hardliners and likeminded undemocratic Dems make the unthinkable possible.
With super-weapons making earlier era ones look like toys, Washington’s bipartisan-supported permanent war agenda for global dominance risks armageddon like never before.
America is today’s Nazi Germany, wrapped in the stars and stripes, no other nation ever more ruthlessly dangerous on a global scale, waging war on humanity at home and abroad, willing to risk destroying planet earth to own it.
Armed with nukes and other hugely destructive weapons, Washington’s willingness to use them threatens everyone everywhere.
Extremist Trump regime hardliners and likeminded undemocratic Dems are going all-out to achieve their rage for global conquest, colonization and control.
Syria is ground zero. US-led aggression to replace Assad with pro-Western puppet rule risks direct confrontation with Russia - a nightmarish scenario if happens and escalates to something far more serious than a minor skirmish.
US and Russian geopolitical objectives are world’s apart - in Syria and elsewhere. Washington wages endless wars of aggression in multiple theaters. Russia is the world’s preeminent champion of peace and stability among major powers.
Nothing in prospect suggests Trump regime hardliners may step back from the brink of escalating conflict in Syria more dangerously than already.
Because of Washington’s rage for regime change and regional dominance, flashpoint conditions in the country represent the most dangerous geopolitical crisis since WW II began.
Here are the latest ominous developments. Overnight, Israeli warplanes targeted Damascus - maybe prelude to Washington and its imperial partners terror-bombing the city and surrounding areas in response to a US/UK-orchestrated CW false flag, wrongfully blamed on Assad.
According to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), Syrian air defenses downed “a number of enemy missiles targeting the Damascus international airport,” citing a military source.
Explosions were heard near the airport. Israel declined to comment on the incident, an IDF spokeswoman telling Reuters “we don’t comment on foreign reports.”
Israel terror-bombs Syrian targets repeatedly - by its own earlier admission, over 200 times in the last 18 months alone, naked aggression by any standard. The same goes for US-led war on the country, now in its 8th year with no prospect for resolution.
An AMN News correspondent said for the second time this month, “the Israeli Air Force heavily bombarded the Damascus International Airport, prompting their air defenses to attempt to intercept the attack,” adding:
“(A) source near the airport said that the Israeli attack managed to score direct hits on the installation.” No information is available on the extent of damage or casualties.
SouthFront said the attack was either carried out by one or more UAVs or warplanes, adding “after the first airstrike, Israeli warplanes carried out a series of airstrikes on a” Syrian military base near Damascus.
Separately, US-supported terrorists and White Helmets delivered canisters of weaponized chlorine to the village of Bsanqul in Idlib province - ahead of a US/UK- orchestrated CW false flag to be wrongfully blamed on Assad.
Russia’s reconciliation center in Syria General Vladimir Savchenko said (US-supported) al-Nusra terrorists transported the toxins to the planned crime scene.
CWs are to be used against Syrian children and other civilians, an elaborate plot like earlier, a pretext for US, UK, French terror-bombing of Syrian sites - likely to be more intensely destructive than earlier, escalating conflict dangerously.
Russia’s Defense Ministry said White Helmets videotaped footage of a CW incident days earlier - before the real one, to be falsely blamed on Damascus.
RT said “Moscow has suggested that the attack might be prepared with the support of Washington, which wants to justify further air strikes against Syria,” adding:
“Those planned strikes are said to be much larger in scale than those launched against the Syrian military by the US, the UK and France in April.”
There’s no ambiguity about what’s going on, US/UK dirty hands all over the planned incident, orchestrating the CW false flag - terrorists and White Helmets launching it on command by the Trump and Theresa May regimes.
US-led aggression appears on the cusp of escalating conflict in Syria into something far more serious and dangerous than already.
Will US/Russia direct confrontation follow by accident or design? The unthinkable is possible.
I’ll report more on what’s going on as events unfold.
