Trump Administration Considers New "Military Action" Against Syrian Government Forces - Reports

The U.S. Navy guided-missile destroyer USS Porter launches a Tomahawk missile in the Mediterranean Sea, April 7, 2017.

An administration of US President Donald Trump is considering a new “military action” against Syrian government forces, which will be justified by alleged chemical attacks conducted by them against peaceful al-Qaeda militants in Eastern Ghouta.

According to the Washington Post, President Trump, Chief of Staff John Kelly, National Security Adviser Herbert McMaster and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis met last week to disccuss the possible military actions.

The newspaper quoted one senior administration official as saying that Mattis was “adamantly” against the military action in response to the recently reported chlorine attacks and that McMaster “was for it.”

Another official was quoted saying that at the end of the day “the president did not endorse any military action and that officials decided to continue monitoring the situation.”

However, Dana White, chief Pentagon spokeswoman, denied that Mattis took part in such a discussion and said the “conversation did not happen.”

Trump is turning into a complete idiot, he has let his supporters down.

888mladen .

He hasn’t turn he has always been.


Trump is successful, you’re not. You’re an unemployed buffoon, you go no business calling anyone an idiot.


You are right. He is successful for the Zio-Wall Street oligarchs. Trump has succeeded in making billionaires exempt from paying taxes, and making American working class poorer.


trump has not made billionaires “exempt” from paying taxes. His administration has lowered the corporate income tax rate, which was the highest in the world in order to avoid inversion and to spur economic growth.


Trump “successfully” inherited his dad’s billions and still managed to incur net loss of his personal wealth, filing for bankruptcy twice – that’s about the limit of his “business talent”. And his “art of deal” consists of defrauding his suppliers and contractors and then letting his Jewish shyster lawyer friends drag them through US cort system until they go broke…Why would anyone call him a crook, idiot or just a lying sack of horse manure is beyond me…


For billionaires, bankruptcy is just another strategy. Trump has referred to “the Chapter Laws” when talking business. For us peasants, bankruptcy is a shameful thing. For the rich, it’s a strategy to walk away from a mess with the bulk of your wealth intact.


I agree. It’s a strategy to screw over your creditors and employees. But it’s hardly a sign of ones business proves – quite the contrary. Also it works only for top 1% – if a small business owner tried to pull a similar stunt he would never ever be able to get another loan as long as he lives. Trump’s Wall street buddies always provided new credit lines for his companies. And now he has to return all the favours. I suppose we are lucky he never asked the Mafia for help, now that would make him a real idiot – oh wait a minute, didn’t he work with them too in the ’80s…




It’s an hamster criterium in the Corrupt US NeoColonial Empire and among uneducated US “Cheap Charlies”


Don’t look at the appearances but at the ground.

The Obama and Clinton’s were even worst, if possible !


The Kurds strength you will see in Olive branch operation. Trump regime have moved all Kurds thugs from East Syria to Afrin to use against Turkey.


Due to frustration Trump regime cannot protect their thugs and terrorists in Syria anymore. False flag chemical attacks propaganda also flopped seriously. Kick the asses of all pro Trump thugs and terrorists. Well done Syria. ————————————————– —————————————–


TRUMP making “America Great Again” with suggestion of a “President, in America, for Life” : http://www.presstv.com/Detail/2018/03/04/554284/US-President-Donald-Trump-China-life-presidency-Xi-Jinping

Will the “President for life be a Zionist ASHKENAZI Jew”, by chance? …..And now, as per this article, MORE lies to JUSTIFY more WARS

Yes, he is an IDIOT alright-but smart like a FOX !

Most Psychopaths are.

John Whitehot

in any case at least in this article he decided “against any military action”


he is not a clown he is an employer of AIPAC your master .the owners of hollywood wall street the FED and main media


The administration of Trump/invalide duck/ need definitely preventive nuclear attack,should somebody stopped for ever this aggresion by geriatric congress USA !


i dont even understand what the fuck you said here. Go take your fucking meds and learn some grammar, you illiterate 3rd world piece of shit.


Still waiting for “World Class Affordable Health Care”. Sorry just another War Criminal. And I voted for him. Won’t make that mistake again. Vote I mean.


Is donald trump a king? Can he wave a magic wand and just give you 100% of the things he promised on the campaign trail? Yeah, thats not how politics or the separations of powers work. God you’re fucking stupid. You think voting one guy into one chamber of government is going to automatically get you what you want.


Peace would be a good start. He has to make the effort but I guess its above his intelligence and pay grade.




Don’t be…he’s a fuck wad and he knows it..


US GO HOME to let the World breath !


For (((Money)))


Unbelievable . Well SAA should take care … take it as terrorists have an air force or navy.

Don’t be surprised they would be attacked soon as the terrorist are faltering. Get the SAMs ready … as the cruise can be shot down too.


The S-400 should do nicely.


The west coutries want discredit president Putin before new votes!England announced poisoned former Russian agent and wife in England…


Turkey, Saudis, qataris, Israelis , all are afraid of losing their real estate in this Damascus suburb. Without ghouta, their war for regime change is over. The only thing left they can do is divide Syria.


Where are peaceful OSN ltd USA? Juesej likely to prepare scenario similar to Kosovo!

JewSA and Israhell IS ISIS


You do realize saying shit like “JewSA” and “israhell” isnt particularly witty or funny, right? Like, I probably agree with your position, but saying that kind of shit makes you look like a 5 year old autistic fuckwit. It’s just cringeworthy to read.

“israhell” WOW DUDE…. you SOOO fucking “cool” man. You learned to place word in the midst of another to try and make some “insult”. wow dude, youre SOOO fucking “funny”.

Just like some of these morons that say erDOGan. “wow im so “funny”, i mentioned the word DOG in Erdogan”. Like seriously, thats shit elementary school kids do. How the fuck is that even remotely considered witty, or funny? If youre gonna try to be funny, at least learn some innovative jokes.

You remind me of some dumbfuck unemployed protester (of any issue) holding some cardboard box wailing about how the “end is near”.

Dumb fucking, worhtless piece of shit. Go take your fucking medicine, you unemployed, poor hygiene piece of shit.

You’re actually NOT funny. This is why you dont have any friends. You lonely, pathetic piece of shit.


Mate, I think it’s you who has forgot to take his medicine. Calm, breathe, it’s OK.


“Mate”, I think your mom forgot to use condoms when she was banging blacks at the local motel 6, and thats why your ugly ass reared itsself into this world.



Lol. Mate, calm down. It’s OK.




Is that a new troll? And a racist Trump a** licking one it appears..


Is that a fucking autistic queer living off welfare? This piece of shit “Turbofan” never seems to contribute anything of substance to any of his posts, ever. He’s just here to spout off one liner dribble as if his opinions “matter”. Guess what bitch, you’re not “special” regardless of what your shitbag mommy and daddy told you. You’re just a basic bitch like most humans. Noone will remember you when you die.


I think you struck a nerve.

888mladen .

Leave degenerate alone.


Do you think using quotes makes you sound smart? No idiot it doesnt


What the FUCK does using quotes have anything to do with being “smart”. Its called using fucking quotes for scare quoting. It’s not about sounding smart, its about proper usage.

Some writers put quotes around words they want to distance themselves from. Quotation marks used this way are commonly called scare quotes or shudder quotes. It’s a way of implying that you’re using a term in an unusual way or that you don’t necessarily approve of it.

Fucking retard.

Rüdiger Preiss

Hamster, you swear better than Ken O’Keefe :D!

Rüdiger Preiss

If you don’t have a partner to get laid, there are 3 ways to relieve yourself. a) DIY; b) go to a shooting range with a 45 Magnum and blow a few rounds into a cardboard Trump face; c) come on a public forum and swear better than Ken O’Keefe

leon mc pilibin

Whats the matter Hamster?Does a little truth hurt so bad,after all ,you do only get fed fake news day in day out..Look at the makeup of your so called government.And then tell me how many duel citizens are inside it,,,and AIPAC gives orders to the paid congress men to carry out ,or they wont get reelected…It is jewSA,and its been like that for a very long time,but brainwashed idiots cant see that,probably too busy watching sport,hellywood ,eating like pigs,so that the average american looks like an Elephant..lol.

classical fearmongering feint. They wont do anything, but they cry bububu to put fear in others, people shouldnt be afraid at all, just wipe out terrorists and shoot down any US incursion when necessary.


Iraq, Libya, and Syria were Good and Stable Countries,

That why they had to be shamefully Destroyed to please the US/Zionist Parasites !

Excellent research.


Thanks You are welcome

Very good article, I would add this to how has this been possible? Manufacturing consent is the modus operandi by the octopus often referred to as the deep state. The MIC was mentioned as one of the apparatuses of the deep state, there are many one could name as all are controlled by the many tentacles. The progressives found this out in the exposure of the DNC as not a political party of the citizens but an apparatus in the control pf the deep state or what ever nomenclature one would want to assign.

Manufacturing consent: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ju_5_kar7S0


Thank’s, Noam Chomsky is excellent, he is saving the US and Jews honor.

Sadly the masses didn’t read his books…

j. jaxson

he is a misinformer posing as good. so is amy goodman.


Read him and meet him alike I did !

Aside that a Friend who was a Berkley Professor admire him a lot, and he deserve it !

888mladen .

Surely they are both guilty ones deceived and deceiving others,

888mladen .

So you’ve bought Noam Chomsky’s sophistry? Haven’t you. You better inform yourself by reading this: http://modernhistoryproject.org/mhp?Article=NoamAsset

George King

Change my mind about manufacturing consent?

888mladen, how to you jump to the conclusion I have bought into anything other than how manufacturing consent relates to anything other than what was presented? Your leap to conclusions appears nothing more than an attempt to shoot the messenger, me. That’s ok but you did not address the issue, that is an issue.

“Who controls the past controls the future… …who controls the present controls the past.” — GeorgeOrwell, from “1984”

Quoting the same reference you provided acknowledges the same modus operandi as I presented. “Chomsky spends the entire book attempting to prove that newspapers diminish American war crimes while exaggerating those of foreign governments. Such a point is easy to prove, and he does so in his own droll and methodical manner.”

As for Chomsky, the main critique appears “,Yet he stops there. Chomsky does not discuss the real elephant in the room: direct CIA collaboration with media outlets and journalists beginning in the 1950’s under Operation Mockingbird.” I would say that applies to many who are not willing to take on the deep state and in some cases does not have the actual proof of individual acts to state the obvious.

Well, I hope this is not true, but if it is Russia must assure destruction of the assault platforms… and some extras.

George King

Putin has already made this declaration, but they don’t listen. It would be good to reflect on exactly what he has said leading up to the present. Once he says something he will not bother to repeat it, those who are paying attention understand this.

Putin out maneuvers creators and supporters of ISIS, declares war under UN Charter rights to strike ISIS and their supporters anywhere anytime. Checkmate indeed!

Putin: “We must do this without any statute of limitations and we must find out all their names”, while invoking Russia’s right to self-defense under the United Nations charter. “Anyone who tries to help the criminals should know that the consequences for trying to shelter them will lie completely on their shoulders.”



Revelation 18

last time US sent 60 tomahawks , the syrian defensive positions shot them up and only 20 reached the airfield to bomb an empty place ..

look at the stupid horrible cost , 60 cruise missiles , only 1/3 arrived and do nothing but bomb already empty field..

this is what happen when US been fighting low tech insurgents who cannot fire back , now even the syrian air defense can do that easily with their pantsyr units , perfect defensive weapons to counter western overrated PGMs..

what US gonna use except sending cruise missiles ? inserting special operation troops ? the latest video from niger showed how US ‘special’ force got massacred by enemy because they got no air support..

Don't read butthurt replies

“peaceful al-Qaeda militants”?!

Did I read that right?! Holy shit. Stupid, idiots, dumb, braindead, pathetic and terrorist supporters in this country. A walking abortion problem.


blabla at obama usa will be nothing!!!


This is really US flight forward. They start to despair and give impulsive blows. They are likely to get trapped in a very tricky situation. This is not a really smart attitude, showing to whole world their villain behaviour. It’s “surprisingly” happening short after AIPAC conference on monday.


Dual citizens holding US and Israeli passports, colloquially called the Neocons, exhibit signs of despair. The Ghouta operation is going on faster and more successfully then anybody ever hoped for. The last remnants of US sponsored terrorists posing threat to Damascus will be wiped out in a matter of days. First time in 7 years SAA will have a text book strategic advantage of clear interior lines of communication and force concentration on just one front line in Idlib. Free hands in and around Damascus will enable them to, hopefully start rebuilding it’s AD network and then it’s good bye with IAF terror attacks with impunity. And IRGC troops are still in Syria and Assad still can decide to up the ante by letting them engage the Israelis if Bibi misbehaves. Come to think of it – Neocons are not nearly as desperate as they should be…


So the US wants to see the new russian hypersonic weapons in Washington? No problem, Avangard glider can “land” there in 10 minutes or less….


First the russians want see them.


Russians will see the starting, americans will see them “landing”. That is fair enough


the may 9th parade is close ;)


I want to see if those new Sarmat work…… Washington, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago. London, Paris, Berlin – – – would make a very nice demonstration. Solve most of the world’s war problems too.


1. So… last week the US was discussing dropping bombs on Syrian Govt forces for another US lie. 2. Then Putin dropped his hypersonic bombshell and muttered something about an attack on allies being mistaken for an attack on Russia… 3. Suddenly … America’s last week’s “Let’s attack Asaad meeting” didn’t happen?

Now that’s a good sign.

John Whitehot

it’s just press sensationalism.


It’s still a back-down.

John Whitehot

it depends. the attack was fake and “involved” chlorine rather than sarin. It’s probably the only way the hollywood paid nusra directors may fake the effects of a “chemical weapons usage” as they would not be able to make up evidences of sarin attacks.

Probably their current course of action is to fake a number of chlorine attacks rather than one sarins, and hope to have the same effect.

95% of the public opinion has no idea about the difference, they only read “chemical weapons” and they outrage.

trumps problem like now is probably on how to justify an attack in front of the international community, a large part of which supports Syria and Assad (something that never gets on neither MsM or alternative medias).

As of now that condition is not matched, the described meeting probably is just a 5 minutes talk among the 3 persons publicized to show that they are on the case.

“Peaceful Al-Qaeda militants”? Gee… Was it not only a short while ago when the entire fraudulent “war on terror” was hinged on “eliminating Al Qaeda” for its “attacks on 9-11”?

Honestly, how stupid and gullible are people these days?

Cheryl Brandon

Well, the Secret government and Deep state has to continue with their WARS without any consent from neither Americans or Syrians. Obomber never got any consent. In fact, he by passed Congre$$ and went straight to his JCOS-or Private army who he c an give orders to start the bombing of an unsuspecting country eg Syria in 2012. Now Obomber the Dronesmaster and International war Criminals is going around with Kamala Harris another WAR MONGERER thinking they could both fool the voters again???

Floyd Hazzard

These people are shameless. They have not one shred of honesty ot dignity left in them. They are debased to the point where they are naked but refuse to admit that they have no clothes.

Feudalism Victory

TRUMP 2020. He was fooled once with a fake chemical attack suckered in by images of hurt children. Id be surprised if he did anything again.

Manuel Flores Escobar

thats why… last week Russia sent 2 more SU 57 stealth fighter….


trump ready to kill americans florida school massacre was not sufficient for washington TRUMP must get more dead and suffering, american zombies are no longer needed. therefore more dead soldiers than the vietnam war, is the aim.

Icarus Tanović

That’s well said.
