  1. I still think Putin is going to establish a Russian Enclave and start importing the local Christians to be trained as a security force. By doing this he will achieve several goals, 1) Keep the Port in Russian hands, 2) have a local security force that will take most of the causalities and won’t cause bad headlines back home, 3) Give more credence to his being the protector of Christianity.

    • There aren’t all _that_ many Christians, but there’s a fair-sized Russia-friendly enclave already. Many studied in the USSR.

      The relationship goes all the way back to the establishment of the country – 72 years ago. It’s a commitment that Russia takes seriously.

      Something Egypt and India, for example, watch very closely. El-Sissi sees a deeply entrenched MB here, an existential threat poised to overthrow him in a heartbeat.

      PM Modi figures he might not have such a reliable “friend” if another tard-o-phile is elected Potus. 0 treated him even worse than Bibi.

      Relationships are important. You never know when you might need a friend…with veto power in the UN Security Council.

      This Dem agitation, it just doesn’t look good.

      Besides the fact that Russia-gate is making us stupid, making us act stupid. Like turning away the world’s best ballerina, a Bolshoi superstar, invited to perform at Lincoln Center?!

      • Thank you for the new info.

        No the Dem agitation doesn’t look good, it is being done for many reasons all of which tie into their desire to turn the US full communist. As long as they end up in charge of the US (they probably include Canada in their plans) they don’t care what happens to the rest of the world because they think they can handle the Islamic invasion and take over the rest of the world once they control the US.

        The last I heard Hezbollah was bragging about having 10,000 sleeper agents in the US. That was several years ago so while they probably didn’t have that many implanted then they have at least half that number now. The Texas Rangers report that there is a Hezbollah training camp withing 50 miles of the Border and they report finding Islamic prayer mats in the desert every day. There are also reports that some of the sleepers are moving around planning attacks.

        Things are getting interesting in the Western Hemisphere add that into what is going on in the Middle East and the early riots in France and it looks like this summer is going to be nasty.

  2. zero hedge – Containers With Chlorine From Germany, Smoke Grenades From UK Found In Syria’s Ghouta: Russia

    Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova stated during a Thursday press conference that containers filled with chlorine from Germany and smoke bombs manufactured in the United Kingdom city of Salisbury were found in the East Ghouta region of Damascus, the location of the alleged chemical attack by Assad which resulted in the launch of 105 Tomahawks on 3 Syrian targets by US, UK and French forces last Friday.

    “In the liberated areas of Eastern Ghouta, Syrian government troops have found containers with chlorine – the most horrible kind of chemical weapons – from Germany, and also smoke grenades produced – please pay attention [to this] – in the city of Salisbury, the UK,” Zakharova told a news conference in Moscow on Thursday.

    The findings undermine “the faith in humaneness” of some states’ leadership, who “give such orders and make such decisions,” Zakharova added. No further details were released regarding this finding.

    Of course, western leaders’ have alleged, if without demonstrating proof, that the Syrian government was behind the Douma attack based on “open sources”, YouTube video clips and other information on social media, including the reports of the so-called civil defense group, the White Helmets. The group is believed to be linked to militants and operates in the areas under their control.

    Last week’s airstrike occurred just ahead of the arrival of an Organization for Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) fact-finding mission tasked with establishing whether any chemical attack had taken place. The team of chemical-watchdog experts still can’t reach the site of the purported attack, as militants have hampered their work, according to Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov.

    • Russia: ‘German chlorine, smoke pellets from Salisbury found in E.Ghouta’ – Zakharova

      “Syrian Government forces found chlorine in containers, the most dangerous kind of chemical weapons, from Germany and smoke pellets produced in – attention – Salisbury, Great Britain,” in Eastern Ghouta’s liberated areas, said Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova during her weekly briefing in Moscow, on Thursday.

  3. MoA – Syria – Who Is Stalling The OPCW Investigation In Douma?

    […]Why were, allegedly, shots fired at the UN Security team but not on anyone else visiting the area?

    If, as the terrorist supporters claim, Chlorine was used in the ‘chemical attack’, the OSCE investigators are unlikely to find any physical evidence of it. Chlorine dissipates and leaves no unique traces in the dead body. Interviews with local witnesses though could be of value.

    One gets the impression that certain circles fear the the OPCW could reach the area, talk to witnesses and confirm the claims made by doctors in the hospital as well as by many journalists that no ‘chemical attack’ took place. It would expose the attack on Syria as a reckless and unjustified war crime.

    The leader of the UNDSS is an Australian police commander:

    Mr. Drennan, who from 2009 served as Deputy Commissioner National Security with the Australian Federal Police, brings to the position an extensive career in policing and law enforcement at the community, national and international levels.

    Is it possible that a distinguished Australian police commander delays or prevents the OPCW investigation to protect the British and U.S. allies?

  4. BREITBART – Watch: CNN Correspondent Smells Chemical Weapon in Syria

    While reporting from a refugee camp near the Syrian border of Turkey, the senior international correspondent for CNN Arwa Damon put her face in a backpack from 7-year-old children who survived the alleged chemical attack.

    After smelling the backpack Damon said, “There’s definitely something that stings.”

    Congressman Thomas Massie tweeted:

    In briefing to Congress, DNI, SecDef and SecState provided zero real evidence. Referenced info circulating online.

    Which means either they chose not to provide proof to Congress or they don’t have conclusive proof that Assad carried out gas attack. Either way, not good.

    Indeed, American, British, French and German reporters speaking with doctors in the hospital which treated the alleged victims of a “chemical weapons attack” and local residents have all found that the story is false.

    And one of the main children shown in the videos of the alleged attack explains what really happened.

    BREITBART – Exclusive — Rep. Thomas Massie Says Trump’s Instincts Were Right: ‘Get Out of Syria’

    Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview that President Donald Trump’s original instincts were correct about Syria, that America should not get involved, and “we should get out of Syria.”
    President Trump ordered strikes on Syrian forces after reports alleged that Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons.

    Reps. Massie and Justin Amash (R-MI) were two of the most prominent Republicans to oppose Trump’s strikes on Syrian forces.

    Congressman Massie, in reaction to the news that Trump ordered strikes on Syrian forces, wrote last Friday, “I haven’t read France’s or Britain’s ‘Constitution,’ but I’ve read ours and nowhere in it is presidential authority to strike Syria.”

    Last week, Amash said Trump’s strikes on Syria were “unconstitutional, illegal, and reckless.”

    Massie told Breitbart News, “I don’t think it was a good idea. I don’t think the president should have struck Syria. In any event, he should have gone to Congress to get approval.”

    The Kentucky Republican argued that the United States has no coherent strategy in Syria. Massie believes that the Syria strike runs counter to the stated goals of ending the civil war in Syria as well as limiting Russian and Iranian influence in the country.

    Massie told Breitbart News, “There is a not a coherent strategy in Syria right now. For instance, one of the goals the White House has stated is not to have Iran and Russia so deeply embedded, yet we drive Assad into the arms of Russia and Iran when we strike him; he has to rely upon defensive weapons provided by the Russians. Our activity is counter to our stated goals in Syria, which is to have the Syria war be over with and to have Russia and Iran less involved.”

    “It is my opinion that we made it worse, and doing nothing would be better than what we’re doing,” Massie contended. “We have prolonged the civil war by keeping it balanced by degrading Assad’s ability to win the civil war.”

    Other lawmakers have suggested that intelligence forces have yet to confirm whether Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, in fact, used chemicals weapons on his people.

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) told CNN on Tuesday that “Assad either must be the dumbest dictator on the planet–or maybe he did not do it.”

    Paul continued:

    I have yet to see evidence that he did do it. The intelligence agencies claim they have that evidence, but think about it, does it make any sense? He’s been winning the war for the last couple of years. The only thing that would galvanize the war to Assad directly is a chemical attack.

    Rep. Massie echoed Sen. Paul’s argument, suggesting that defense and intelligence forces did not provide members of Congress definitive proof that Assad used chemicals weapons.

    Massie told Breitbart News, “I can tell you this: If they have proof, they did not provide any info in our classified briefing from Mattis, the secretary of state, and director of National Intelligence. They did not provide evidence today [Tuesday] in our classified briefing. Don’t get me wrong; these briefings are generally low-information meetings, but this one was lower than normal. There was nothing that was provided in there that’s not on the Internet.”

    “They would be able to show it to Congress. We were in a classified setting, and we are all qualified to receive classified information, and it has been provided in the past for other things. They did not provide anything to us,” Massie added.

    On Tuesday, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) entered the town of Douma, Syria, to investigate whether Assad did use chemical weapons.

    Massie suggested that President Trump’s instincts to avoid Syria were right.

    Massie said, “I think Trump’s instincts in 2013, I think Trump’s instincts when he was campaigning, and I think his instincts two days before the attack were all correct. Those instincts were that we should not get involved in Syria, and we should get out of Syria.”

    The Kentucky Republican argued that the Syria strikes run “counter to his instincts and what’s popular in the United States.”

    “This is not sustainable financially, not diplomatically, not in the long-term interest of Syrian civilians,” Massie added.

    He further stated that the Trump administration received support from other global powers. However, Congress has yet to formally back the strikes.

    Massie concluded, “The White House said that they received support from Japan, NATO, the G7, even the Gulf Cooperative Council ; I like to point out that Congress has not issued a statement of support. That is the most important statement of support if you want to put America first. They could ask for it now; they’re not doing it. They could probably get it from Congress, but my colleagues do not want to go on the record.”
