Flirting with WWIII

President Trump has ordered "precision missile strikes" in order to let Assad know that the US will not tolerate the false flags of its proxies. Or something.
President Donald Trump said he had approved military strikes on Syria in retaliation for an apparent chemical attack by the regime of Bashar al-Assad on a rebel town.

“A short time ago I ordered the United States armed forces to launch precision strikes” on targets associated with Syria chemical weapons, Trump said in remarks Friday night.

Trump said the strikes would be carried out in coordination with France and the U.K.

Trump’s statement on U.S. policy toward Syria came after days of speculation that the U.S. would launch a strike against Syria in retaliation for an apparent chemical weapons attack last weekend that killed scores of civilians.
Idiocy, of course. But it strikes me as Trump trying to look like he's doing something without provoking a serious response.

The problem is this: The Russian military said on 13 March it would respond to any US strike on Syria, targeting any missiles and launchers involved in such an attack.

UPDATE: Syria’s capital has been rocked by loud explosions that lit up the sky with heavy smoke as U.S. President Donald Trump announced airstrikes in retaliation for the country’s alleged use of chemical weapons. Associated Press reporters in Damascus saw smoke rising from east Damascus early Saturday morning local time. Syrian state TV says the attack has begun on the capital, though it wasn’t immediately clear what was targeted.

This all looks insanely stupid and totally pointless. I hope this is all some sort of kabuki allowing the God-Emperor to declare martial law and drain the swamp. Consider:
  1. Dumbest, most unnecessary, and most poorly timed "chemical attack" ever.
  2. Bizarre overreaction on the part of the President.
  3. Uncharacteristically strong and public pre-reaction on the part of the ordinarily patient Russians.
I'm not saying this is the case, I'm just saying that I won't be very surprised if after some missile strikes and the sinking of one or two of the US Navy's older ships, martial law is declared, all of the God-Emperor's domestic enemies are arrested, and last-minute personal negotiations between Trump and Putin save the day and avert World War III.

And, as always, I advise patience before reaching any conclusions. Remember, this is not the first time. It won't be the last time. Relax.

I am waiting for more information. There are explosions reported in East Damascus, but I don't know the targets. It would appear so far that the Russian military is not responding. But who knows.

According to him, the Syrian authorities last week took all measures to evacuate equipment and personnel from airfields and military bases, which were struck on the night of Friday to Saturday.

Bit of a stretch there.
My most optimistic view is that this is a false flag set up by the USA and Russia to trick ((ISIS)). Russian jets are in the air. Where did they go? Both sides rattled the sabres way more than expected. I think the false flag has been answered with a false flag.

I sort of doubt it, but I like it. When your enemies hand you false flags, shove 'em down your enemies' throats.

We have speculated that Trump is being supported by elements of the military. If that were the case, we would expect military responses to everything, but not responses which put more boots on the ground, since the military is seriously overtasked and under-maintained. High profile air strikes, for example.

Blogger Markku April 13, 2018 10:50 PM  

AP: A highly placed Russian politician is likening President Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler after the launch of airstrikes against Syria, and says he regards the action as a move against Russia.

Alexander Sherin, deputy head of the State Duma’s defense committee, says Trump “can be called Adolf Hitler No. 2 of our time — because, you see, he even chose the time that Hitler attacked the Soviet Union.”

That’s according to state news agency RIA-Novosti. The Nazi forces’ opening attack against the USSR in 1941 was launched around 4 a.m.

The escalation scenario was one where Russia would have to attack the launch sites like it said in order to maintain face. If they were to do that, they'd almost certainly have done it by now. They'll probably say that since Syria doesn't think this attack serious, they didn't have to make good on the threat. So, we're probably in the clear for this strike.

If this won't surprise you than you are unsurprisable.

First, Russia wouldn't dare attack the U.S. assets directly. They may have air superiority over Syria, but that's only because the U.S. allows it. Russia's only parity with the U.S where the military is concerned is via Nukes. Nothing else. If we wanted to take on Russia over Syria it would be blood bath and Putin would have to explain how he lost his mind, lost Syria and lost every last base in the region.

Blogger Markku April 13, 2018 11:32 PM  

MOSCOW, April 14. / TASS /. A military strike against Syria, inflicted by the US-led coalition, calls for tough measures from Russia and the entire world community. This opinion was expressed in a conversation with TASS by the head of the Federation Council Committee on Defense and Security, Hero of Russia Viktor Bondarev.

"Such actions of the coalition are a crime against the whole world and humanity, they require tough, but thoughtful measures from our country and the entire world community," he stressed.

Hard to imagine they would do this much talking if they were planning on action.

At this point, I don't think Trump has threatened the Russians' vital interests there, so I don't think they are going to respond as if he had done so.

@FUBARwest: If it came right after the Flynn resignation/arrest the Manafort arrest, the Comey firing, etc., I could see the public thinking Wag the Dog.

But the Cohen raid looks bad for Mueller, even if not as bad as it does for Trump. This isn't exactly a down moment for Trump in the various "Gate" Narratives. They appear to have dead ended the collusion investigation, they've all but said Trump isn't a target, the damning report on McCabe is out, and Comey's book previews are going over like a wet fart.

All that, plus Trukp's approval ratings are high. This is not the time for Hail Mary diversionary war.

Blogger Markku April 13, 2018 11:36 PM  

Yes, their secondary interest would be that their allies don't view Russia as throwing them under the bus the moment things get tough. Syria's statement that they don't regard this as particularly serious attack will help with that.

I was talking about that upthread. It may be that the MIC is the Derp State faction backing Trump. If so, intermittently bombing mohammedans, who are at war with us anyway, is a cheap way to keep their loyalty.

Since the military is feeling over-stretched right now, I think it's a safe bet that the MIC isn't going to try to get us into war with Russia or China now, so that's definitely not the worst option.

Face-saving, lies or not. As long as it lets the Russians save face, it's good. Actually, it would be good all around if there is a little truth to that lie - we don't want to embolden the MIC to think they can risk war with Russia. A few missiles shot down would cool any hot heads in the MIC, for a little while.

People need to calm down a lot, as Vox says a few missile strikes doesn't mean anything, I think this is part of why Trump is doing this. To weaken the deep state and the system it enforces. They want boots on the ground, Russia, Iran driven out of Syria and Assad toppled. Trump doesn't want war at all, he doesn't really want these strikes or to harm Assad, Iran or the Russians, he certainly doesn't want war with them. So he lobs a few missiles, acts like he has done something, the deep state is utterly weakened and Trump continues on. I like Trump more and more, I don't worry about him. What worries me in all this is what Turkey will do, as the Russians, Iran and Syria want to keep the Americans engaged, so Turkey won't become dominant. The Russians are worried about this, so they don't want to give up their position in Syria.

I already apologized for that comment and walked it back well before you responded.

The idea that America's navy is American and that their foreign adventures are to be universally supported 'if one American life' is among them is not something I believe at all. No reasonable person can believe that. At the absurd end you are supporting any unit of professional Taliban rapists that happens to have a CIA advisor attached to them.

Not a chance.

Now read carefully... I am not trying to fault your intellect, I am saying that this is rather complicated and I am not very good at explaining things succinctly... You might have to disentangle some of it.

1) The WORLD believes that Assad used Gas, including most Americans. It is not logical, it is not likely, but America is run on feels, not logic.
2) Trump drew a line in the sand on chemical weapons. Everyone THINKS Assad crossed the line to 'prove' that it was a bluff. A gesture had to be made, or everyone would think America was a toothless pussy like Obama tried so hard to convince the world we were. To avoid pushing it too hard, he alerted Russia and Syria a day and a half BEFORE the missile strike so that they could prepare and both sides could get their propaganda straight... The Line was crossed, the response was necessary.
3) Simultaneous to the strike, a line of explosions rocked the border between Syria and Iraq. It seems quite likely that the missile strike had two functions... one, to prove that we would back up our word, and two, to provide cover for another strike against certain ISIS positions who would be off their guard and thinking they had successfully shifted the blame. I am reasonably certain that those explosions on the border were NOT warned of 'in advance' and likely had a considerable loss of life.
4) The whole thing set up enormous diplomatic potential in that France and the UK now 'Owe us' hard for backing them up, while remaining strictly in the 'limited strike' domain... After a limited strike, both countries will have a VERY tough time refusing diplomatic overtures in the name of 'securing peace'. IF the F/UKers had tried to do it without our help, the strike would NOT have been limited, as the F/UKers do not have the military capacity for a strike of that nature.
5) This was a very subtle way of putting Isreal on notice that, ally or not, we won't let them use our money to gas Gaza. In fact, it was made very clear by Trump's speech that we are NOT going to keep funding their eternal Holy war any more. They can either go to REAL war or they can choose to get along... we are not going to be their proxy anymore.

And last as well as CERTAINLY least, 'russian collusion' BOOM! Headshot! Now it's time to start Digging Comey's and Mickey's graves, without fear of it being perceived as interfering with an investigation.



Now, while some of this is speculative, it all very much passes both the sniff test and fits the available facts. I may not be right on all of this (I am not Q and i am not telepathic) but it really, strongly fits the devious profile of the way Trump's mind has worked in the past.

He really believes that wanting to NOT see Servicemen killed is the same as being a neocon.

Go back to commenting on Manosphere blogs. You have a lot of growing up to do before you can understand the dissident right.

@183 Bonus points for using F/UKers, I almost spilt my drink after reading that.

Bombard Body language on Trump's address

Takeaways: Trump was very confident while delivering the speech and had practiced it beforehand. How ever this was clearly scripted and not his own words.

Not happy about this but 4Dchess is still on the menu.

@Dire Badger, my relatives, older and wiser figured there way through military indoctrination so I didn't have to. My grandad was reading "None Dare Call It Treason" when I was in my crib. Lecture me on being American, millennial, dissident right and a cuck more, it's damned funny.

Fair enough, at close to 200 comments you can miss stuff.
Also, the way Arthur Isaac is white knighting for you and responding like he's you, I might have gotten a little confused between the comments. How about we set it behind us?

The idea that America's navy is American and that their foreign adventures are to be universally supported 'if one American life' is among them is not something I believe at all. No reasonable person can believe that. At the absurd end you are supporting any unit of professional Taliban rapists that happens to have a CIA advisor attached to them. Don't go posturing that 'even one American life' is your standard. There is clearly a point at which Americans are advising a mercenary unit, and that applies to navy ships as well. I'm not wrong, I'm just early.

I wasn't supporting American Adventurism. I consider it an Abomination. However, there is a world of difference between 'supporting' someone and not wanting them to die, in fact, in doing your utmost to make sure that they do not die.

My daughter is a hard core purple-dyed lesbian land-whale SJW feminazi. I do not 'support' her in the slightest. I find what she does to be horrible, and will do almost anything I can to stop her and eventually get her into an institution.

That being said, however, It is STILL my obligation to throw myself in front of a bullet for her. I am her father. her stupidity and lifestyle (which will most likely get her killed eventually despite my efforts) does not absolve me of the responsibility to protect her life by all means. That is something I do for ME, to fulfill the role I feel I must to be a father.

Even if their commanders and politicians are using them as a weapon, or in any way turning them into scapegoats, Our soldiers, sailors, and flyers are OURS. It is our responsibility to support the MEN of our military, try to protect their lives, even if we fight tooth and nail AGAINST the purposes to which they are being spent.

This is our responsibility as Americans, we do this for US, not for the powers that be, not for the government which we may despise.
Even if our soldiers commit atrocities under orders, they are still OURS. Yes, they should have refused an illegal order, yes, they should have refused to participate, but they are OURS...if they broke a law, it is OUR place to punish them for it. We do not abandon our own.

It is shameful to me that people cannot recognize the difference between being loyal and being a cultist... one is not just an extreme of the other.

I applaud your honesty. Very few pussies are willing to admit it... The next step is being committed to change.

No one asked you to join the military. You are utterly unsuited to it, and frankly 'today's military' is a whining bitch place you wouldn't want to be anyway. Despite that, however, many of the soldiers and sailors who are committed to putting their lives on the line for YOU chose to do so despite this fact. Denigrating and wishing for their deaths is despicable. Despite how they are misused, or how badly they are trained, they are still trying to protect YOU from the people who would murder you and take your stuff. Your denigration simply shows that you are not worthy of that devotion... you are not their social equal, and do not deserve to even breath the same air they do.

Since you are clearly struggling with distinguishing between 'loyalty' and 'cultism', I recommend you read my last comment above. Some of the words like 'Responsibility' You might not have ever been exposed to, though... So I suggest keeping a dictionary handy.

@183 Dire Badger.
"1) The WORLD believes that Assad used Gas, including most Americans. It is not logical, it is not likely, but America is run on feels, not logic."

Completely agree, but a large growing portion of his base knows different.

"And last as well as CERTAINLY least, 'russian collusion' BOOM! Headshot! Now it's time to start Digging Comey's and Mickey's graves, without fear of it being perceived as interfering with an investigation."

That was the same sort of reasoning for last years bombs. I don't disagree with the plausibility of your assessment. Muh Russia is going to continue regardless. The real question is when is the draining of the Swamp going to start taking place publicly.

FFS, if Trump can't step up and convince the world of the industrial scale lying going on, how the F is he going to expose the Swamp Critters? He would have an army of Alt Media types ready to support his play, if he just made it.

This could simply be the pragmatism of the external war instead of civil war. Kickin' the can down the road.

If you have to shoot your dog, you do it yourself. You do not delegate the responsibility, you do not lock it in a cage to starve. You look it in the eye as you take it's life.
It is not 'kindness' to be too soft-hearted to do what is necessary, it is sadistic cruelty.

Still watching and waiting and not drawing conclusions. Although there's nothing quite so ridiculous as sitting on the fence while a foolish prophecy falsifies itself.

Blogger Dire Badger April 14, 2018 4:31 AM  

@Rocklea-
"Muh Russia" has gotten to the point where anyone still clinging to it looks as ridiculous as Hillary trying to rationalize losing.

Yeah, the die hards will still keep prating, but even the feels-driven majority are looking them with far more pity than respect. The MSM may take a long time to die, but their death is clearly visible... It's just a question of when we turn off the life support.

Teresa May is live right now

Blogger Rocklea Marina April 14, 2018 4:46 AM  

I guess you could further say, that Trump invited May and Macron to make it clear, that "If you want to play Muh Russia, we are playing it together."
May looked a little skittish.

The biased side of me says that the height of human engineering is computer technology and so-called "artificial intelligence". But let's be real...the height of human technology is being able to launch a single missile into the vacuum of space to spawn 10 MIRVs with guidance systems back through the burning holocaust of Earth's atmosphere and then incinerate an equal number of major metropolitan areas with the energy of the Sun. Meanwhile on good old Terra Firma, brainwashed Lefties are worried about gendered pronouns and 'effing last-century can-openers they call the AR-15/M-16/M-4 that shoots a less-than-depleted-uranium projectile smaller than a cigarette butt.

I'm not worried about Trump and Putin starting a nuclear war, BTW, anymore than I'm worried about some asshole bringing an AR-15 into my office and playing a fatal game of whack-the-mole. But on a long enough timeline, inventions were made to be used. Also, as far as I understand it, Isaiah 17 remains unfulfilled. Not that that prophecy bodes any better for the pro-Israel neocons than it does for Damascus...

No I hadn’t heard.

I suppose those last “rebels” entirely surrounded by loyal Syrian Army forces were also just some few pissing against the wind types.

As admirable as you find your muscular disregard for the lives of remote strangers, I decline to join you.
