  • Iraq Bombs ISIS ‘Terrorist Death Machine’ in Syria, Siding With U.S. Foes Russia and Iran

    Iraq conducted rare airstrikes in neighboring Syria on Thursday, the same day it met with an alliance that may further threaten U.S. interests in the region. On Thursday, the office of Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced in a statement that "our heroic armed forces carried out deadly airstrikes on Thursday against positions of ISIS terrorist gangs in Syria by the Iraqi border." Iraq has mostly defeated the jihadis at home with outside help from a U.S.-led coalition and Iran, and the strikes come after Abadi said last week he may intervene against ISIS in Syria, where the U.S. and...

  • Russia may have tampered with chemical attack site, U.S. envoy says

    Western countries accused Moscow on Monday of preventing inspectors from reaching the site of a suspected poison gas attack in Syria and said Russians or Syrians may have tampered with evidence on the ground. The United States, Britain and France launched air strikes on Saturday against what they described as three Syrian chemical weapons targets in retaliation for a suspected gas attack that killed scores of people in the Damascus suburb of Douma on April 7. Syria and its ally Russia deny using poison gas during their offensive this month, in which they seized the town that had been the...
  • The US Navy appears to have fooled Russia and Syria with a warship ruse before the strike

    When President Donald Trump threatened to send missiles at Syria — despite Russia's promises to counter-attack— all eyes turned towards the US Navy's sole destroyer in the region. But that may have been a trick. Pundits openly scoffed at Trump's announcement of the strike days in advance, especially considering his criticism of Barack Obama for similar talk, but the actual strike appeared to go down well. In April 2017, two US Navy destroyers in the eastern Mediterranean steamed into the region, let off 59 cruise missiles in response to suspected gas attacks by the Syrian government, and left unpunished and...

    Greek officials announced on Thursday that a Hellenic Air Force Mirage 2000-5 fighter jet crashed in the Aegean Sea, near the island of Skyros. The pilot, identified by the HAF as 33-year-old Capt. Giorgos Baltadoros, was returning from an aerial policing mission where he intercepted two Turkish Air Force F-16s. "The mission had finished and it had been on its way back with another Greek plane," a Greek official told the New York Times. Greek Defense Minister Panos Kammenos said that Baltadoros was a "hero who fell defending national sovereignty and territorial integrity." It is not known exactly what caused...
  • Syria air strikes: Trump defends claiming 'mission accomplished'

    President Donald Trump has defended his use of the term "mission accomplished" amid criticism following US, UK and French air strikes on targets in Syria. He accused the "fake news media" of seizing on the term to demean the strikes, carried out in response to an alleged Syrian chemical weapons attack. President George W Bush was ridiculed for appearing in front of a banner carrying the term during the Iraq war.

    A Russian senator, Viktor Bondarev, said that for the sake of national security Russia should halt its space cooperation with the United States, RIA news agency reported on Friday. Earlier on Friday, lawmakers proposed a ban on U.S. imports in response to a new set of U.S. sanctions imposed on Russia. The lower house of parliament is expected to consider draft legislation on the matter next week.

    Faux Nuze ^ | April 12, 2018 | VLADIMIR ISACHENKOV, Associated Presstitute
    Faced with the threat of a U.S. strike on Syria, Russian President Vladimir Putin has a dilemma: allow U.S. missiles to hit Moscow's ally without a response or risk a military clash with the United States. If driven into a corner by a U.S. attack, Putin will be unlikely to sit back. Inaction would threaten his hard-won gains in Syria, dent Russia's prestige and erode his tough-guy image....When Ukraine's Kremlin-friendly leader was driven from power in February 2014 by mass protests, Putin reacted to what he described as a U.S.-driven coup by immediately sending troops to overtake Crimea and then...
  • Ex-spy poisoned by very pure nerve agent: Chemical watchdog

    ABC (Allied Bolshevik Communists) Noose ^ | April 12, 2018 | Jill Lawless and Danica Kirka, Associated Presstitutes
    The international chemical weapons watchdog on Thursday confirmed Britain's finding that a former Russian spy and his daughter were poisoned with a nerve agent, as Russia continued to deny suggestions that it was behind the attack. Investigators from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said the nerve agent was "of high purity." Britain says that means only a state with a sophisticated laboratory could have manufactured it. The watchdog's report does not say who was responsible for the attack, since that was outside the scope of its mission. The OPCW's job was to identify the poison, not to...

    The Syrian army has uncovered a clandestine plant in Eastern Ghouta that was used by the terrorists to produce military-grade agents, with equipment of Saudi origin and materials presumably made in Western countries having been found at the building, local media reported on Tuesday. The plant is located in al-Shefounieh town in the area of Duma. Among other toxic chemicals, chlorine was found at the site, the SANA news agency reported, adding that the papers of the Jaysh al-Islam militant group were also discovered. A Syrian field commander said that high-tech equipment was found at the plant, which indicates that...

    President Donald Trump said Thursday that a U.S. missile strike on Syria may not be imminent. "Never said when an attack on Syria would take place. Could be very soon or not so soon at all! In any event, the United States, under my Administration, has done a great job of ridding the region of ISIS. Where is our 'Thank you America?'" Trump said on Twitter.

Ministers will consider the options for backing military action threatened by the United States and its allies. Theresa May is prepared to take action against the Assad regime in Syria without first seeking parliamentary consent, sources have told the BBC.

    Moscow will shoot down any U.S. missiles fired at Syria and retaliate against American launch sites, the Russian ambassador to Lebanon has warned. Ambassador Alexander Zasypkin made the comments on Tuesday while speaking on the Hezbollah-affiliated al-Manar TV channel, Reuters reported. President Donald Trump is currently considering military action against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad following Saturday’s suspected chemical attack on the rebel-held town of Douma near the capital city of Damascus. Medical relief groups say the attack killed dozens of civilians.

    Donald Trump launched an unprecedented attack on Vladimir Putin for Russia's role in propping up the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad as he demanded urgent action to help the victims of what he called a "mindless" chemical attack. Syrian opposition activists and rescuers said on Sunday that a poison gas attack on a rebel-held town near the capital had killed at least 49 people, according to local estimates. Mr Trump took to Twitter on Sunday morning to condemn the reports and say that Mr Assad's backers would face a high price.

    The Pentagon’s mission against the Islamic State in Syria remains open-ended despite President Trump’s promise of a quick U.S. withdrawal. Military leaders are focusing on pushing the once-powerful group out of the small foothold it controls in eastern Syria and ensuring that it cannot plot attacks against the United States, a task defense officials have suggested will require a U.S. footprint after the fighting stops. What remains unclear is how the military will reconcile its vision with that of the president, whose distrust of foreign wars and desire to demonstrate a swift victory were evident in the past week as...

    During the 2016 campaign, Donald Trump excoriated President Barack Obama for “the way he got out of Iraq,” which Trump said “was the founding of” the Islamic State. As president, Trump reiterated during a meeting with Iraq’s prime minister that “we should never ever have left. A vacuum was created.” Trump was right. Obama’s withdrawal did create a vacuum the Islamic State quickly filled. So why is Trump now threatening to repeat Obama’s mistakes by withdrawing U.S. forces from Syria?....Trump corrected this catastrophic mistake when he took the gloves off our military and drove the Islamic State from its physical...

    Turkey’s intelligence agency has seized at least 80 Turkish nationals from multiple countries as part of its efforts to hunt suspects with alleged links to a 2016 coup attempt, a senior Turkish official said Thursday. Speaking to a private news channel, Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said Turkish agents had launched operations in 18 countries to pursue members of the Gulen movement, which Turkey blames for the attempted coup. He said some of the operations — including in Bulgaria and Malaysia — had been previously reported, but he did not name any other countries. He also did not identify the...

    PRESIDENT TRUMP’S national security team appears to have barely persuaded him not to make the mistake of abruptly withdrawing U.S. forces from Syria, where they are defending vital U.S. interests. But he still seems determined to abandon the arena soon and at the expense of American friends, such as Israel and Jordan, and to the advantage of Russia and Iran. Mr. Trump startled his advisers by declaring at a rally last week that U.S. troops would “very soon” get out of the country. Now he has agreed they can stay long enough to complete the elimination of several pockets of...

    After police killed an unarmed black man in Sacramento earlier this month, California legislators are poised to again try to loosen some of the nation's strictest prohibitions on the release of officer shooting and misconduct investigations. State Sen. Nancy Skinner (D-Berkeley) plans to introduce a bill next week that would require the disclosure of investigations of serious uses of force, including police shootings. The legislation, which civil rights groups across the state support, is necessary because people have a right to know how law enforcement treats those cases, said Lizzie Buchen, a legislative advocate for the American Civil Liberties Union...
