Russia’s reaction to Trump’s missile attack on Syria

A bare 2 months 17 days into his presidency, last night (April 6, 2017), Donald Trump ordered Pentagon to fire 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at a Syrian air base, in retaliation against what Trump calls Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad’s “horrible chemical weapons attack on innocent civilians” — never mind that:

  1. No official investigation was undertaken to determine that Assad indeed had made the chemical attack.
  2. Trump did not get the consent of Congress although a missile attack on a sovereign government is an act of war.

Putin’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said although Russia was informed about forthcoming US strikes against Syria over existing communication channels, “nobody called [Russian President Vladimir] Putin.”

RUSSIA’S Reaction No. 1:

From President of Russia Vladimir Putin, April 7, 2017:

The President of Russia regards the US airstrikes on Syria as an act of aggression against a sovereign state delivered in violation of international law under a far-fetched pretext. The Syrian Army has no chemical weapons. The fact of the destruction of all Syrian chemical weapons’ stockpiles has been recorded and verified by the OPCW, a specialised UN body. Vladimir Putin believes that complete disregard for factual information about the use by terrorists of chemical weapons drastically aggravates the situation.

This move by Washington [the US airstrike on an air base in Syria] has dealt a serious blow to Russian-US relations, which are already in a poor state. Most importantly, this move will not bring us closer to the ultimate goal of combatting international terrorism but will instead create a major obstacle to the establishment of an international counterterrorist coalition and to effective struggle against this global evil, something that US President Donald Trump declared as one of his main goals during his election campaign.

Vladimir Putin regards the US strikes on Syria as an attempt to draw public attention away from the numerous civilian casualties in Iraq.

On Friday, the United States launched Tomahawk cruise missiles at an air base in Homs Province in western Syria.

Reaction No. 2:

Today, April 7, 2017, the Russian Foreign Ministry calls for urgent UN Security Council meeting to discuss aftermath of US missile strike on Syrian base. At the same time, Russia suspends the Memorandum on preventing incidents and ensuring flights safety during operations in Syria earlier signed with the United States.

Reaction No. 3:

Russia deploys a cruise missile-armed frigate to Syria.

A “military-diplomatic source in Moscow” told Russian news agency TASS the Black Sea Fleet’s frigate Admiral Grigorovich, described as “currently on a routine voyage,” will enter the Mediterranean later today, April 7, 2017, and will make a stop at the logistics base in Syria’s port of Tartus.

  1. President Trump, know that we are behind all your decisions and wholeheartedly support your mandate. God bless You and keep you.

  2. Okay, Russia, if the fixed-wing aircraft dropping the chemical weapons weren’t Syrian, were they yours? (C’mon, now… )

    • If you have solid evidence that Assad ordered the chemical strike, give us your source(s).
      Further, even assuming that Assad did, that still does not justify Trump risking WW3 by raining Tomahawks on Syria.
      The questions to ask are:

      (1) How is this a clear and present danger to America’s national security? The answer is No.
      (2) Does attacking Syria Make America Great Again? The answer is No.
      (3) Who benefits? The answer most definitely is not America.

      • Hear hear, Dr. E!

        I’d like to add: WHOLLY UNCONSTITUTIONAL as well…just like the 26,000+ drone strikes in 2016.

        The Deep State spreads it’s wings once again – despite who may be the so-called “leader of the free world.”

    • I read where Russia already said the ac were theirs and had hit a weapons dump used by isis, a weapons dump that contained chemical weapons. These weapons were disrupted in the attack and thereby harmed nearby civilians as well as isis.

  3. A couple of years ago Russian planes flew over one of America’s largest warships turning off virtually all electronic equipment on board the ship. The ship was dead in the water for awhile. Upon returning to port many officers summarily resigned. The US has squandered half of our federal budget on wars for Israel for more than a decade while the Russians have produced new generation of weaponry. World War III will be short-lived and decisive.

    • “World War III will be short-lived and decisive.”
      –Gary Jones

      World War III will last “13 weeks (=91 days)” – “All [its events] in a very short time.”
      –Per former Illuminist/Satanist, Doc Marquis, who says he was saved over approx. 30-some years ago, & has worked with David Bay, founder, CuttingEdge.org, over that period of time (radio, articles, videos, etc.). Marquis says the antichrist will appear at the end of that WW3’s 13-weeks/91-days (& “make peace” which is why “all the world” will follow after him “admiringly”):
      http://www.cuttingedge.org/news/n1883.cfm (old article from 2003-2004).

      ~~~

      Just throwing that out there, fwiw. CuttingEdge ties WW3 to the Book of Revelation, & I’m not so sure the two are synonymous, nor that they run parallel. I do think that “they” will (attempt to) “fake” the Book of Revelation’s events in order to fool Christians that their (bad guys’) planned-antichrist is the biblical one (meaning, the real antichrist has not arrived yet, but when the real one comes, people will think THAT one is the Lord returning, faking them out even moreso).
      –The “fake” Revelation events/wars will (may) be Technocratic, modern weapons, microchips, etc.
      –The “real” Revelation events/wars will (may) be just as the Bible says, bows, arrows, swords, horses (with blood up to their bridles) because technology will have majorly failed (or been destroyed) by that time. Any “mark of the beast” will be just as the Bible says, a tattoo (Greek: charagma) & not “microchips.” etc.

  4. “One more thing. This military action is a clear indication of the US President’s extreme dependency on the opinion of the Washington establishment, the one that the new president strongly criticised in his inauguration speech.

    “Soon after his victory, I noted that everything would depend on how soon Trump’s election promises would be broken by the existing power machine. It took only two and a half months.”

    Just thought I’d share the take of the Russian President on his American counterpart. We’ve been sold a bill of goods.

  5. I feel foolish even asking this, but we have been told so many monstrous lies down through the years, I will risk it and ask. Can we be sure that what is coming out of the media about this latest Syrian attack is even true? I remember the big rumpus about Syria in 2013, when Lindsey Graham made the ridiculous statement about bombs in South Carolina. At the time he made that statement, there really were bombs being taken from Charleston harbor, I believe, and detonated about 500 miles out in the Atlantic. In the next couple of days, Putin made a strange statement about an earthquake in that same area of the Atlantic, and intimated that he knew what it really was.

    I’m just saying that we know from past experiences, that what we see isn’t necessarily what we think.

    I’m also reminded of the Damascus prophecy in Isaiah 17: The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap. Verse 14 seems to say it will happen in just one night: And behold at eveningtide trouble; and before the morning he is not.

  8. That is sadly true, what Putin’s reps had to say, all very true (or at least it appears so from where we sit).

    And what a slap in the face (insult) to not at least give Vlad a ringy dingy on the tele beforehand, since Syria is somewhat “his baby.” I mean, why aggravate the Bear? Trump during his campaign intimated that he felt he & Vlad would get along just fine.

    Well, umm, this isn’t exactly the way to go about it. If Putin feels like he cannot trust the Trumpster, we’re in deep doo.

    (Though, all concern aside, probably MOST ALL HEADS OF STATE are “in on it” together, & always have been, waiting for their proper time to “act out” their respective roles.)

    “Their script is now written, subject only to last-minute editing and stage-directions. The stage itself, albeit as yet in darkness, is almost ready. Down in the pit, the subterranean orchestra is already tuning up. The last-minute, walk-on parts are even now being filled. Most of the main actors … have already taken up their roles. Soon it will be time for them to come on stage, ready for the curtain to rise. The time for action will have come.”
    –Peter Lemesurier [a “New Age” Illuminati Insider, in his book] “The Armageddon Script”, p. 252, 1981.
