Syria False Flag Coming

False flag operation underway?

Trump so weakened that he is out of the picture on this?

Sic Semper Tyrannis
The White Helmets are saddling up for another ride
Col. W. Patrick Lang, US Army (ret.)

At the Defense Intelligence Agency, Lang was the Defense Intelligence Officer (DIO) for the Middle East, South Asia and counter-terrorism, and later, the first Director of the Defense Humint Service. At the DIA, he was a member of the Defense Senior Executive Service. He participated in the drafting of National Intelligence Estimates. From 1992 to 1994, all the U.S. military attach├ęs worldwide reported to him. During that period, he also briefed President George H. W. Bush at the White House, as he had during Operation Desert Storm.
He was also the head of intelligence analysis for the Middle East for seven or eight years at that institution. He was the head of all the Middle East and South Asia analysis in DIA for counter-terrorism for seven years. For his service in the DIA, Lang received the Presidential Rank Award of Distinguished Executive. — Wikipedia

The nuclear "red line" warning came in Gutenev's following statement, per state-run TASS:

“It’s no secret that serious pressure is being put on Russia, and it will only get worse. It is intended to deal a blow to defense cooperation, including defense exports. We see that the Americans now speak about the possibility of sanctions against the countries that purchase Russian weaponry… We should follow the advice of certain experts, who say that Russia should possibly suspend the implementation of treaties on non-proliferation of missile technologies, and also follow the US example and start deploying our tactical nuclear weapons in foreign countries. It is possible that Syria, where we have a well-protected airbase, may become one of those countries.”
He also mentioned focusing on cryptocurrencies to circumvent “US attempts to thwart deals on Russian weaponry and civilian goods,” saying Moscow should “consider the possibility of conducting transactions in cryptocurrencies that are linked to the value of gold.”
“And I’m sure that this will be a very interesting option for China, India, and other states as well,” he said. According to Gutenev, the whole package of these measures taken together could create serious momentum in Russia's favor when dealing with the United States and its allies....
Upping the ante.

It’s good to see the Russians finally becoming candid about the Empire’s lies.

Meanwhile someone please hack out a chunk of John McCain’s cancerous brain tissue so it can be injected into Bolton’s skull. Then we can be rid of Bolton too.

“A provocation with an alleged chemical weapons use in Syria, which terrorists are plotting to stage with the assistance of UK special services, will serve as a pretext for missile strikes by the West and the United States against the Arab country, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said on Saturday.”

The #Resistance (i.e. the #Assistance) will cheer. In April 2017 Russia-gaters eased up on Trump after those 57 cruise missiles were fired at Syria. NBC news anchor Brian Williams gushed that he was “blinded by the beauty of our weapons.” The wargasm euphoria lasted about a week. Then it was back to all-Russia-gate-all-the-time.

A year later (April 2018) the USA again launched cruise missiles at Syria is response to the so-called “Douma chemical attack.” After a week of joy, it was back to all-Russia-gate-all-the-time.

“According to the Russian general, eight containers with chlorine have been brought to the Idlib province.”

Chlorine that will magically transform into “nerve gas,” or “novichok.”

Damn. Now it's too late. McCain's gone and Bolton is still here.
