US Defense Secretary: No Decision To Strike Syria, Washington Waiting Evidence Of Chemical Attack

On April 12, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis revaled that no decision had been reached by President Donald Trump about a strike on Syria. Mattis added that the U.S. is still waiting to see the evidence of a chemical attack.

“We are not engaged on the ground there, so I cannot tell you that we have evidence, though we certainly had a lot of media and social media indicators that either chlorine or sarin were used,” Mattis said.

He also complained that Russia and Syria had allegedly opposed the investigation.

The Defense Secretary said that the US “will not know from this investigating team that goes in, if we can get them in, if the regime will let them in, we will not know who did it.”

“They can only say that they found evidence or did not, and each day that goes by as you know it is a non-persistent gas so it becomes more and more difficult to confirm. So that is where we are at right now.”

It looks that the Defense Secretary accidentally forgot that Russia and Syria had been first to suggest an independent investigation of the Dmoua incident and to invite OPCW investigators that are set to arrive Syria this week.

Furthermore, Mattis’ statements are in contrast to a public attitude of the US diplomacy. Over the last few days, US envoy to the UN Nikki Haley and US President Donald Trump have repeatedly accused the Assad government of being behind the attack. The US President has repeatedly threatened to strike Syria. A White House Press Secretary has claimed that the US does not rule out striking Russian forces in Syria.

Now, Mattis says that the US still needs evidence. So, what changed?

        White Helmets group members are Israel. Israel have deluded the world population by use of electronic and print media a lot. In 2014 Israel have made the Gaza war to show the massacre and destruction that Israel have done there in Gaza to the world population that Assad have done this to their own people. Saudi kingdom and Israeli migrants have done this to destroy Syria, massacre whole Syrian nation and totally destablize the middle east region.

          Just the simple threat that Tomahawk cruise missiles are on their way is forcing the Russian dysfunctional-coalition to irreversibly alter their plans, leaving behind all the military gains they have achieved in recent months = US/NATO PSYCHOLOGICAL WARFARE AT THEIR BEST.

            Greedy remora troll bastard that don’t donates. Particularities: he replies all the time in the first section (the section of the post more voted) and he never makes a post of his own. Suggestion: no one answer to the remora(s). Information given by the pellory of the trolls. Guys, the pacific budget would be, at 15 April, $2,500, so, let’s donate!

            Guy, to apply to me words as “bitching” you have to be physically present, in person, not as an avatar. If not, you are only a avatar bed educated. Wanklord do always the same, he don’t write on the moment of the discussion, but only after, when people already is discussing other articles, he never posts on is on, and only replies on the section of the post more voted.

            Thats not debate but babling by only fingers as thinking machine and no factchecking as the most usual way.

          I don’t think that they have to be Israeli migrants in their most part. But there are photos of many of them, so, won’t be very difficult to discouver who they are.

    • Starlight

      Ah- the zionist troll UPVOTED again,

      Now let’s look at the FACTS. We are getting the ole zionist “good cop, bad cop” routine. Remember, the whole point of good cop bad cop is that in reality, BOTH cops are working together to FOOL the suspect.

      Mattis has the job of playing GOOD COP (as troll AJ knows all too well). His job is to prove there has been NO RUSH TO JUDGEMENT. An American term refering to when you decide guilt BEFORE the evidence is available. But Mattis KNOWS the evidence is in, collected by CIA SAMS personel on that night in Douma from people who were actually poisoned by nerve gas.

      The public ASSUME an honest investigation would take a little time- the time taken to get the blood samples (via SAMS – a name trolls like AJ never refer to- note) out of Syria to the West, and then the time taken to test these blood samples.

      Now our zionist troll talks about OPCW- where do they come in? Not to collect evidence of the gas attack- america and britain aready have ABSOLUTE PROOF of that (proof they manufactured, of course). As AJ the troll knows, OPCW have the job of PROVING that Putin cleaned up the crime scene in a futile attempt to hide evidence.

      1) OPCW claim to find nothing in Syria, PROVING Putin cleaned up the crime scene, since SAMS blood samples prove people were really gassed.

      2) OPCW find proof of the gassing, CONFIRMING on the night Putin and Assad gassed the women and children

      Heads the West wins, tails and Putin loses – just as AJ and his pack of trolls that haunt this forum know.

      While AJ and co troll you, May is building up a massive multi-national coalition, using the evidence of the skripal poisoning and the evidence of the East Ghouta poisoning. This coalition is set to INVADE Syria.

      • Jens Holm

        Nice written reflections even I dont agree in half of it … + +

        • John Whitehot

          paranoid personalities make the nicest reflections as well, pity that they are built on wrong assumptions and hence are devoid of sense.

    • Jens Holm

      Its skizzo. When the attack went on none outsiders could check it. When the polluted air is gone, the russians tell it never was there.

  • Promitheas Apollonious

    Maybe they shitting in their pants understanding that threatening and trying to bully syria, is not enough and actually must do what they are threatening about and pay the price?

  • Redadmiral

    Seems the Yanki scum just make things up as they go along. In reality it is a well thought out plan, crank things up, drive propaganda machine into overdrive, stock-market fluctuates wildly, Zionists trash ordinary share holders and make a killing.

    • Stephan Williams

      Call them jews, Redadmiral. We don’t know if they’re zionists but we DO know they’re jews.

      • Merijn

        We know that ZioNazis are Jews….but Jews not necessarily ZioNazis…

        • Oscar Silva Martinez

          I wonder how many Jews are Zionist, in my opinion most of them are!!!

          • Merijn

            That is possible…what would be your estimated percentage 95% or 78% or 99,5%…? Because I haven’t got a clue….I am pro-Euthenization of Evil peeps….I think you can find those practically anywhere…

        • Jens Holm

          You must be stupid and insist very hard, when some few million jews can run 1 billion muslims.

          • Merijn

            That time is over…1 billion Muslims are gonna run over some few million Jews…the Slaughter that is on the way will clean the face of the Earth…

    • Starlight

      The ‘yanki scum’ make plans, but when circumstances change and they can hope for so very much MORE, they change their plans.

      MI6 has changed the rules. Their false flag has out-performed even 9/11. Now America knows its ultimate dream is possible- invading Syria and driving Putin out. So this is the NEW plan, and to all you football hooligan Putin worshiping fools, this new plan is going to happen.

      The humiliation will finish Putin. Thinkers on our side should be asking themselves what happens next in a post-Putin Russia.

    • Jens Holm

      You must be very low in most matters, if some few million jews can run 1 billion muslims that well.

      Seemes so and even You prefare that and only are for the Nobel Price in excuses.

  • Hrky75

    …blink, blink… and US folds…

    • Starlight

      When has a power taking time to assemble a massive force of invasion ever been called “folding”?

      Throwing a few missiles can be done in hours, which before the MI6 false flag perfected was all the yanks felt they could get away with. Now America knows it is going to win the big prize, Syria- and the russians are going to be driven out.

      Putin is currently making arrangements for the safe evacuation of Syria. Feel free to shoot the messenger- it’s what losers have done throughout history.

      • Hrky75

        Haven’t you notice that US can use naval assets only. They can’t use airbases in Turkey, Israel and Greece. In addition, Italy and Germany refused to take part, so count out Sigonella and Reimstein bases. Naval task force alone is a gamble – ships have been known to sunk when hit by half-a-ton of C4 – and has limited amount of missiles available. Attacking a ME country under false pretext and wining is one thing. But organizing an obvious false flag in order to attack and losing one or two navy destroyers in the process – that’s something no US administration can afford. And short of sinking Syria back, or nuking Russia and the rest of the planet along – there’s nothing much US could to to retaliate. Confronting Russia with navy alone is geopolitical equivalent of entering a dark alley with your pants down and being surprised with the unpleasant outcome…

    Well well,the penny has dropped at last.They realise that they are not dealing with innocent Iraq BUT innocent Russia.And the Bear does not like to be poked,or he gets very very angry,and can strike back in a devastating way for these zionist lunatics..Another good idea would be to keep on sailing home,while you have ships to sail in..Scumbags.

    • Starlight

      So, troll, what will you say in days time when it is clear the coalition is being assembled to INVADE Syria? Let me guess, you’ll act as if you never said any such thing?

      • leon mc pilibin

        Assembling and invading are two totally different things.Who says the invading part will succeed?My bets are on Russia beating the shit out of you stupid israhelli ass lickers,,big time.

    Ninguém se preocupando com os ataques aos civis,todos querendo mesmo é o petróleo da síria

    • jorge

      Translation: no one carrying about the attacks against civilians, what all wanting is the syrian oil.

      • Jens Holm

        Its bad oil filled with sulphur and asphalt and in very limited amounts.

        It only has big local importance for a small poor country as Syria. None will fight for that.

        If You instead focused on pipelines from Iraq and Iran it would have some relevance. Most oil in Syria is amready sold to the russians selling oil for weapons and – kind og funny – fuel.

  • Britam

    Perhaps the more rational persons in the American government finally were heard. Also, when your allies begin to equivocate about helping, as Germany did, one begins to see the writing on the wall.
    I for one am very worried about governments playing brinksmanship games with nuclear weapons. It is not called MAD (Mutual Assured Destruction) for nothing.
    Good luck to the Syrians. It’s their country anyway.

  • Fred Dozer

    How many American soldiers are in North Korea ? Why is NATO, not attacking the North despite all the “big talk”. Really nukes seem to be, a weapon of Peace. The USA provides Nukes to their allies, Russia does not. Who’s land does NATO continue to steal ? Its truly the only deterrent against madmen. If Syria had Nukes, they would never be attacked. Israel would be gone, in the event of a ground invasion or massive bombing campaign.

    • Joe Dirt

      Are you really that misinformed? Japan is raising an army to deal with N. Korea! :D

      • Fred Dozer

        Your kidding right. Japan army does not have weapons. They are USA puppets.
        Under the post-war constitution, Japan is not allowed to have offensive military forces. Its Article 9 declares “the Japanese people forever renounce war as a sovereign right of the nation and the threat or use of force as means of settling international disputes”.

      • Jens Holm

        That too.

    • Jens Holm

      I can explain the North Korea dilemma very well. If You look at the map Seoul will be totally destroyed by local missils just across the border.

      News to me USA provode any nukes to anybody. More like the opposite. The Ukrainian trade, where the Ukrainians got Chrimera, The 2 Russians Counties in Ukraine itself and very big fleet facilities was for all nukes deployed for destruction of Western Europa.

      Russia stole that that with no nukes and also Estonia, Latvia, LItaunia, Kasakstan, Turkmenitstan, Usbekistand, Georgia. Armenia … You have to add the fence keeping people divided having not even a chose for western contacts and a mad economic system as well.

      If Syria had nukes or were close to,Israel long time ago has nuked them hard. Kurds took their nukefacility some year ago. It was bombarded so Israel dont need to nuke Syria.

      Syria has the lousiets military forces in the whole Middle East. Hardly better then 1967. Your propose for a ground invasion tell very well, how You are lied on and even belive things, which non others in the world see.

      Military comments from Syrians and the results from SAA confirm that very well. Your language and losses shows You are in level WW1 and hardly understand what tanks are for as well aas logistics as well as 1,2,3,4 ….

      • Fred Dozer

        USA has been in Middle East for 16 years. If Iraq had means to nuke Europe. It would be all talk and no action. Do you know when “Project for a New American Century” was written and implemented ?

  • Mountains

    It dosen’t make logic what his saying. If this is what the outcome will be then the whole world will go chemical. This is dengerous path by saying no evidence this or that. You have seen the pictures and people foaming from the mouth. If actions don’t come I believe the world will go chemical and people will say no EVIDENCE. Everyone will arm himself with chemicals from now on. The world will just become a much more dengerous place

    • AJ

      Nonsense you cant find out the truth of something like this with just film footage – onsite investigation is required, samples takes, victims tested. The first OPCW inspectors have now arrived to conduct their work

      • Mountains

        Just wait for couple of years like 3-5 years then you will see everyone armed with deadly chemicals from rebels, to militias to armies to even criminal groups to even tribes. This news has trended unfortunately and if nothing is coming out of it then. Rest assured the chemicals will be on the market.

        This is predictable

        • skinner15

          You mean all the acid attacks in Britain?

    • Merijn

      Go back to your Zionazi Brothers…tell them you failed…perhaps the White Helmets will listen to you….

      • Joe Dirt

        Assad and his backers also sought to limit the extent to which the U.S. could verify the attack in order to mitigate the risks that the U.S. would be able to determine the credibility of local reporting. They reportedly disguised the nerve agent with Chlorine, an industrial agent used as a makeshift chemical weapon. They also conducted the attack in a besieged enclave in Damascus, far from the reach of U.S.-backed rebels or international observers.

        Assad’s goal was to break the will of the local civilian population and force the surrender of the anti-regime jihadist group, Jaysh al-Islam, that has operated in the area. He succeeded.

        • Merijn

          I don’t think Jaysh al-Wahhabi and I are going to be friends….

          The Islamist group Jaysh al-Islam admitted to using chemical weapons against Kurdish militias in Aleppo. It also uses human shields and publishes execution videos – yet it has a delegation at the UN-backed Syria peace talks in Geneva.
          Jaysh al-Islam (Army of Islam), formerly known as Liwa al-Islam (Brigade of Islam), is a coalition of Salafist Islamist militant groups based in the Douma and Eastern Ghouta neighborhoods of the Syrian capital Damascus.

          1 Who supports it
          Jaysh al-Islam is one of the two major militant groups in Syria supported by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, and is part of a larger coalition called the Islamic Front. The coalition seeks to make Syria a country ruled by sharia law, exactly what its rival Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) aims to achieve.

          2 Who considers it terrorist
          The group is considered a terrorist organization by Syria’s allies Russia and Iran, and also by Egypt. It describes as “brothers” fighters of the Al-Nusra Front, the Syrian branch of Al-Qaeda, which is considered a terrorist group by the UN and many nations.

          3 ISIS-style executions
          In June 2015 Jaysh al-Islam released a video of the execution of captured Islamic State fighters, which mimicked similar videos produced by the notorious terrorist group. Unlike IS, Jaysh al-Islam dressed the executioners in orange prison robes, rather than their victims.

          4 Allegations of using human shields
          In November 2015 the group was exposed as using caged men and women as human shields in Eastern Ghouta. The people were reported to be Alawites, including military officers of the Syrian Army and their family members who had been taken captive.

          5 Peace talks participant
          In December 2015 Jaysh al-Islam sent a delegation to Riyadh, where Saudi Arabia was hosting a conference of Syrian armed groups. Mohammed Alloush, the brother of Jaysh al-Islam founder Zahran Alloush, was elected chief negotiator for UN-backed peace talks in Geneva. Zahran Alloush was reportedly killed by a Russian airstrike days later.

  • RichardD

    This was my response last night to a question from another commenter here as to whether US public opinion matters. I think that my observations are factors that are being considered by decision makers in the NATO Jew 3 of the US, France and the UK, and other participants in the Syrian conflict:

    “It matters, the question is does it matter enough to solve the problems? There’s a black out on important issues trying to suppress what most Americans do or don’t support. The support for the Afghan war is negligible at best, but there’s no information on it available, because the people who could gather it, if they even are, aren’t making it publicly available because it doesn’t support the war. You search the internet and the most recent information is 4 or 5 years old. The same goes for Syria today, there are no polls available, and if there were, they’d be negative. I’m assuming that the information is being collected for electioneering purposes, and then withheld from publication.

    The Jews are the back bone of the deep state. And their prize projects, Israel and Jew world order hegemony, are being threatened by the progressing victory over their regime change project in Syria. And their primary support for that project, the US Israel first swamp, is under assault by America First, led by a flawed and compromised politician, Trump. Who rode it to victory by telling people what they wanted to hear. And once in office faced an entrenched Jew world order establishment diametrically opposed to what he won the election on.

    I’m sure that there’s a lot of infighting going on right now in DC as to how to proceed. They know that they don’t have and won’t get public support for another Jew war in the middle east for Israel. And with the midterms coming up in November, what happens in Syria will be a deciding factor. They’ve painted themselves into a corner with the UK nerve agent and Syria gas attack fabrications. Because at the rate that things are going, the investigation in Syria, on what is and soon will be government controlled territory, is going to go against them. And if they launch a cursory attack, like Trumps WWF stunt last year, it won’t change a thing. The Syrian government coalition will just shrug it off as a baby raper type nuance, and proceed with rolling up the terrorists unhindered. And the chem investigation will in come against the NATO Jew 3 scammers.

    If they attempt something more serious to stop the chem investigation and significantly degrade the Syrian government coalition’s war fighting capability. That’s going to trigger a response from the Russians and company that’s going to result in lost NATO lives and equipment in a manner that they haven’t sustained in previous intimidations and regime change operations against regional victim nations. And they won’t be able to proceed with what they have previously, because the cost will be to high. It’s a case of the school yard bully attempting to intimidate another pupil that can and will bloody and break them badly. The more that they dish out, the worse of a beating that they themselves will take. That isn’t how bully’s operate. They don’t pick fights with peer opponents.

    So the deep state and NATO Jew 3 have no good options. It’s going to turn out badly for them no matter what option that they chose. The only question is, how much death and destruction are they going to create in the process? Syria won’t be another Iraq, Afghanistan or Libya. Where they waltz in, take down the air defense system, and change the government. The air defense system will suffer damage, but it isn’t coming down. The no fly zone over the 70% of Syria under government control isn’t going away. If anything it will be extended east of the river and to the Jordan border. It will be penetrated, but at a cost that NATO has never sustained in it’s history. Because it’s never directly challenged the Russians. The closest has been the 67 and 73 conflicts with Israel, which is a NATO clone. And that was against only a very limited contingent of the Russian military.

    Syria has a fully entrenched Russian military presence at this time. That has had years to prepare for a peer conflict with NATO and tag alongs there, of which there aren’t going to be very many. Any participation beyond the Jew 3 will be cursory, many will simply opt out not wanting to be participants. And Syria is practically on Russia’s front door step, with the main bulk of the Russian military close by. The Jew world order has chosen a bad place to pick a fight, and any fight will go badly for them.

    The casualties must be the easiest way to check??

    • jorge

      Well, not those you are speaking about, I think, but casualties of chlorine, yes, and the sicks, but there aren’t, there is only a studio where the al-Qaeda White Helmets made their phonies films

    Former UK Ambassador to Syria Peter Ford told BBC Radio Scotland on Tuesday it makes no sense for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to gas his own people and warned a US strike on Syria could kill “scores” of Russian soldiers and trigger World War 3. Ford said the military action we’re on the brink of taking is “risking our own safety” and it’s likely we’re being played by Jihadists who staged the attack to “produce hysteria” and trigger Western intervention. “What the Jihadis have done is jerk our leash,” he said.

    The entire world knows it’s a false flag. Unfortunately, many politicians are pushing Donald Trump to war. Why are they supporting terrorists? Here, in Syria there is a fight for influence. This is not the only flash point between Russia and the West. What will this fight lead to?

    The Book of Revelation warns: “And another horse, fiery red, came out, and the one who rode it was granted permission to take peace from the earth, so that people would butcher one another, and he was given a huge sword.” (6:4) What does it mean? Jesus gave many important details: “Terrors both and unusual phenomena from sky powerful will be.” (Luke 21:11) Some ancient manuscripts contain the words “and frosts” (we call this today “nuclear winter”), and in Mark 13:8 “and disorders” (in the sense of confusion and chaos). There will be also significant tremors (caused by the use of this weapon), food shortages and epidemics along the length and breadth of the regions.

    This weapon will also cause climate change, catastrophic drought and global famine. (cf. Revelation 6:5, 6) So here we have a complete picture of the consequences of the global nuclear war. No doubt this detailed and richly illustrated picture corresponds only to this war. Jesus also stated: “All these are but the beginning of the birth pains”. (Matthew 24:7, 8)

    When and how will this happen? Let me remind here a fragment of an ancient vision: “And [the king of the north] will go back (to) his land with great wealth [1945. This detail indicated that Hitler will attack also the Soviet Union and will fight to the bitter end]; and his heart (will be) against the holy covenant [Soviet Union introduced state atheism and believers were repressed]; and will act [it means activity in the international arena]; and go back to his own land [1991-1993. The collapse of the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact. Russian troops returned to their country]. At the appointed time [he] will return back [it also means the breakup of the European Union and NATO. Many countries of the former Eastern block will return to a military alliance with Russia], and will enter into the south [this can be Georgia], but it will not be as the former [2008 – Georgia] or as the latter [Ukraine], for the dwellers of coastlands of Kittim [USA, in the beginning without Britain] will come against him, and he will be dejected, and will go back.” (Daniel 11:28-30a)

    What will induce the “king of the north” to enter into the south? Jesus said: “For nation will rise against nation”, as in 2008 in Georgia, and then Americans will attack unexpectedly.

    • Merijn

      Oh…that is not so good….when exactly is that going to happen?

  • Really?
    So – what did Russia tell them at that meeting today to get THIS result??

  • Petrus Levelleri

    Is “Mad Dog” not so mad after all? I think the Punjabi woman at the UN and the fatboy at the WH are crazier than this guy…

    • S Melanson

      In the tarot deck, the fool is about to walk off the precipice. At the fool’s feet is a barking dog warning of the danger and to step back from the brink. Hmmmmm

  • Oscar Silva Martinez

    So, after all the barking and dirty spitting they suddenly calmed down and stopped when they saw Russia being serious and gearing up for war!!!

    • Jens Holm

      None see that apart from You and a few more.

      Its not about Russians but also about adding up for it and reflecting some. Fx none will say Trump reflect so You hardly can rely in that.

      If I should really harm, I would knock out all water and electricity supply in tha SAA areas.

  • Jim Prendergast

    There is no evidence and there never will be. Lying jerk!

  • Nevins Harding

    The OPCW is controlled by the US and has always been corrupt. They will bring some samples with them to plant. Part of the false flag.

  • Manuel Flores Escobar

    Go to attack Syria and Russia!…oh wait…Iran can close ormuz strait…receive modern weapons from Russia through Caspian sea( Bastion P antiship missile)…can lauch ballistic missile vs US airbases in Qatar, Jordan and Bahrein… can alllow Russian long range bombers armed with cruise missile KH-101 ( stealth, 5000 km range) to attack US navy warships in Persian Gulf and Red sea, Indian ocean….

  • Ariel Cohen

    ” . .we certainly had a lot of media and social media indicators that either chlorine or sarin were used,”

    Are these monkeys completely out of their frickin minds? preparing to start a possible world war, just on the basis of media and social media hearsay? They are totally insane in every way. We need to get them into nice tight straight jackets and whisk them away to the nearest secure mental institution, inject them full of valium 5 times each day and allow the sane nations of the world to restore peace and calm . .

    • Oscar Silva Martinez

      That’s exactly what I thought

    • Joe Dirt

      Assad and his backers also sought to limit the extent to which the U.S. could verify the attack in order to mitigate the risks that the U.S. would be able to determine the credibility of local reporting. They reportedly disguised the nerve agent with Chlorine, an industrial agent used as a makeshift chemical weapon. They also conducted the attack in a besieged enclave in Damascus, far from the reach of U.S.-backed rebels or international observers.

      • Jens Holm

        Doctors with no borders actually is there and they might not be experts, but the results in wounded and also dead comes to them.

        Easy to recognise damages on eyes, skins and lungs. I believe in them even their rapporting almost only are haspital facilities, where people comes to them.

        Those are no white helmest as well as You spread out that Your enemies are not allowed to have any civile defence paifd by outsiders, because You dont pay but fx make no help comming in incl. using starvation.

  • russ

    “though we certainly had a lot of media and social media indicators that either chlorine or sarin were used,”” The ZOG of America’s latest, greatest intel source.

  • Gregory Casey

    Jim Mattis is the only person or thing standing between US/UK/France kicking up a shitstorm and slaughtering thousands of innocent people, soldiers, sailors, airmen & women, and civilian men women & children. I hope he keeps his cool and rejects the bullshxt produced by White Helmets & Saudi Salafist jackals that is being peddled far and wide by BBC, France24 and many more French Stations and on all US TV |Stations. The BBC has disgraced itself over the past 4 – 5 days. Macron is a miserable little man who is a brainless shill, still in the employ of Goldman Sachs & the Merchant Wankers who have bankrupted National Governments worldwide.

    • Jens Holm

      More like the shitstorm comes from Your behind. Youprobatly could sell the gas to Assads, so they can make money on the poplation of Syria and perhaps also some goldbarres.

      • Gregory Casey

        You will be delighted to hear that some of the “bit players” with walk-on parts in the piece of film shot by White Helmets in the ‘Hospital# setting have now come forward, for the record to tell the world that they were NOT suffering from chemical weapons attack and that a group of strangers dressed in medical garb and wearing masks came into the hospital and started hosing down everyone. A wholly staged event you idiot.

  • M Baek

    They can’t do a thing against North Korea and then all of a sudden they take on Russia? They will never fight real armies.

  • Robert Ferrin

    Hell its been nothing but a scam to take the heat off from Trump,we NEVER attack anyone who can do us some serious harm and Russia can and will,just more propaganda for the mass’s…

  • gustavo

    Do you remember “WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION ? Do you remember that a UN team was sent of Irak to see whether or not Sadam had WMD ? So, it looks like exactly the same history is repeating here in Syria. The big difference is that Russia is here, and there is not way to scare and defeat Russia.

    • Jens Holm

      Its not even a matter of that.

      USA and we are only in Syria because ISIS did not tilt Baathistas and unfortunatly also came out of (our) hand in stead og being also not in the hands of Assads anymore making nastuy things mainly killing muslims. .

  • Steve Bell

    No co-incidence that Mattis, and now Trump himself have changed their tune on attacking Syria… just after Putin’s phone call to Netanyahu.

  • Joe

    What changed?

    Russia put it’s foot down and moves their forces on battle stations

  • antoun

    the usa will return against great britain to plain aim the brexit!!

  • Vitex

    Did i hear a voice of reason from the US? That’s a refreshing change.
