SYRIAN WAR: Prepare For The Worst - Hope For The Best


On Tuesday we witnessed the Kabuki theater of the UN discussing action in Syria following the chemical attack on April 8. It is not a shock that Russia would exercise its veto power to avoid any sanctions. It is what official Russia news told its citizens that gives us pause.

Of course in the US, we are discussing important issues, such as hearings with Mark Zuckerberg about Facebook and the latest on Stormy Daniels suit against Trump. In the wake of the fruitless UN meeting, airlines and civilian aviation all changed routes and are avoiding Syrian airspace.

Russia threatens to shoot down any missiles the US fires and Trump replied with a tweet (of course) to essentially, “Bring it on!” Official state news in Russia warned its citizens of possible nuclear war with the US and told the people to gather provisions to take with them to their local bomb shelter. Naturally, they told people not to panic, but they told them to be ready.

Putin does not make idle threats, he is a master chess player from the old USSR and every move he makes is calculated. Did he tell them to prepare knowing we’d hear the warning and believe he’s seriously considering firing the first shot of a nuclear war? Is he simply using it as propaganda to build loyalty at home and generate hatred for the west?

Let’s see; Iran is involved in Yemen trying to upset the situation there and fighting a proxy war with Saudi Arabia. Iran has also been filling the void left by ISIS in Iraq. Erdogan and Turkey are killing Kurds and Yezidis. Syria’s Assad is gassing its citizens, torture and murder of white farmers in South Africa continues. Efforts by Putin’s Russia to undermine the Ukrainian government and the former Russian agent who was poisoned by a nerve agent leading to the expelling of Russian diplomats all over the world.

SYRIAN WAR: Prepare For The Worst - Hope For The Best

While the American taxpayer did get a modest tax cut, the US government added $1 trillion to the deficit in just five months, and with the new Omnibus Spending Bill will continue to spend $1 trillion more than we take in annually. The proposed tariffs have instigated the beginnings of a trade war unless cooler heads prevail. US debt stands at over $21 trillion with unfunded liabilities over $112 trillion. At least North Korea seems to have settled down.

Many western European countries are dealing with increasing sexual assaults directly related to the influx of middle eastern immigrants. The US FBI and Justice department seem to give obvious violations a pass while searching under every pebble and speck of dust to hang a sitting president.

Freedom of speech and the right to bear arms are under attack in the US, and both of those rights have already been lost in much of the western world. Liberty is sitting in a precarious place and tyranny is trying to push it over the edge.

Some people are simply whistling past the graveyard, while others ignore the problems of the world. In some ways we are all just along for the ride and have very little we can do to alter the direction of our governments. One thing we can do is to be aware, prepare, and be ready for just about anything.

Remember Murphy’s Law: If anything can go wrong, it will, and at the worst possible moment.

You write : “Iran has also been filling the void left by ISIS in Iraq.”

Iran actually filled the void in Iraq when the US took down the Sunni Saddam, allowing a ‘democracy’ of a country with 60%+ Shia to be ruled by a regime sympathetic to Iran for its own protection. So, Iran is not filling a void created by terrorists (NATO proxies) it is actually a stabilizing force for Iraq allowing the Shia ascendancy to take hold quicker rather than allowing ideological cognitive dissonance to prevail.

You write : “Erdogan and Turkey are killing Kurds and Yezidis.”

Turkey is attempting to stop Kurdish Nationalism which if allowed to take hold would be devastating for the entire region.

You write : “Syria’s Assad is gassing its citizens”

Says who? BBC? CNN? Assad gains nothing tactically from using chemical weapons which it already gave up in the Russia PR/diplomacy win. Motive is of primary importance in assessing any geopolitical event nowadays. The NATO aligned ‘rebels’ (alqaeda/ISIS refuse) are the ones with the motive.

This is about gas pipeline real estate from the South Pars field in Qatar being vectored up through Turkey into the EU energy market to kill Gazprom. Assad isn’t gassing anyone. There’s a fake news tsunami coming in waves that even Trump is fueling because he has too many Israeli’s too close to him and he relies on them too heavily.

You could have at least written “It is alleged that Assad is gassing his own citizens” but you went with the affirmative. Disappointing.


While I agree with the first part of this statement… your kidding about that last part right?.. and if you aren’t just how sure are you that Russia took and destroyed this weapon? I hear that Russian troops never entered Ukraine either…


I’ve seen a lot of reports that the WH and the Kremlin are coordinating behind the scenes to avoid any conflict or altercations in Syria. I don’t know if that means that we aren’t going to start lobbing missiles over…or if we’re just going to completely deescalate this whole thing behind the scenes. But I hope that cooler heads prevail…because the beating of the war drums on both the left and the establishment right is absolutely insane.


What I neglected to add was that a General with Iran’s Republican Guard, in Syria, declared that the encirclement of Israel is nearly complete and that when they have destroyed Israel it will clear the way for the Great Mahdi, the 12th Imam. Yes, Russia wants to secure a pipeline and warm water port, but Iran has much greater ambitions and so does Turkey. You may note I do not have a solution nor do I think we can do much to alter what happens…my point is we each need to be ready.


You raise an excellent point concerning Iran. Syria represents a real opportunity for them to expand geographically and with regional influence. If we weren’t so far up the asses of both Saudi Arabia and Israel we might have tried to establish better relations with Assad before all of the fighting kicked off. After all, the civil war in Syria is all about the Islamification of secular Syria by Sunni Muslims, which is favored by Saudi, and whose henchmen happen to be Sunni extremists, also known as ISIS.


US wars and interventions fall into a few categories:

  • Literal Imperialism
  • Capital Protection
  • Trade Protection
  • Regional Pressures

80% overtly are for business with little attempts to hide that. With 20% being a little bit deeper.

The reason why we overthrow Chile but not Argentina, support the Saudis but not Syria, or used to despise China, but now we have no real problem with them, all comes down to economics.

It is the fundamental function of policy.

China is an excellent example. As soon as they became freemarket the ideological and stability concerns vanished.


With the technology and weapons of late we may very well destroy the planet .
“Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds,” J. Robert Oppenheimer said quoting from the Bhagawad Gita. He was one of the fathers of the first atomic bomb .


No more Middle East wars. Israel fired a bunch of misses into Syria the other night and wanted the US to get blamed for it. Is that how a “special friend” behaves? Not in my book.


It has to be very clear we are NOT the policemen of the World ! Let those closest to the problem handle it .


This is exactly what the illuminati controllers and the banksters want; Christians bombing Christians in Syria. This is not only a quest for oil that is occurring in the Middle East, it is a plan to kill Christians. Is Russia next? Russia is also a Christian nation.


Who benefits from American military intervention in Syria? What AMERICAN interest does it serve?


No federal bank in Syria and no Petro Dollar. The same for Saddam and the same for Gaddafi.


Trump’s decisions are disastrous to the United States. He alone brought us to this crisis. He gave control to Russia in Syria and now he’s put us all at risk.


President Trump is tasked with cleaning up the MESS Schmobama left and his failure to act when Assad crossed Schmobamas " Red. Line ".
President Trump isn’t BSing with Assad , Iran, Russia or Lil Kim .We can’t always do it alone and need our PUSSYFIED ALLIES to help.No word from Chancellor Merkel!!!
There wasn’t a reason to use a CHEMICAL AGENT against. civilians .


Chemical weapons experts from OPCW have arrived in Syria on a fact-finding mission into the alleged April 7 Douma incident. Syria said it will facilitate arrival of the team to anywhere they want, in Douma, to check whether or not there was use of chemical substances.


Gorka thinks we are shills…


These False Flag conspiracy theorists / stop the war coalition didn’t say a word when Russia and Iran used all the power they had to kill Syrians and end their freedom uprising. No war in Syria? Sweetie it started seven years ago.


It might be starting :fireworks:


Good! ISIS has been on the death slope since 2016. If Trump does not act then he will be no better than Obama on Syria.
