MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia said on Tuesday it had information that the United States planned to bomb the government quarter in Damascus on an invented pretext, and said it would respond militarily if it felt Russian lives were threatened by such an attack.

Valery Gerasimov, head of Russia’s General Staff, said Moscow had information that rebels in the enclave of eastern Ghouta were planning to fake a chemical weapons attack against civilians and blame it on the Syrian army.

He said the United States intended to use the fake attack as a pretext to bomb the government quarter in nearby Damascus where he said Russian military advisers, Russian military police and Russian ceasefire monitors were based.

“In the event of a threat to the lives of our servicemen, Russia’s armed forces will take retaliatory measures against the missiles and launchers used,” Gerasimov said in a statement.

He did not say when the alleged attack would take place or provide detailed evidence to back his assertions.

It’s Israel’s job, NOT ours.

If Israel does it?

I’ll be the whole trumpet section.

If these idiots attack the sovereign nation of Syria you will never believe the living hell that will break loose on our Streets!! This is absolute madness. Syria has done nothing to this country. Saudi Arabia attacked the world Trade Center. I would fully support its annihilation but NEVER SYRIA. Stop this madness!!

This world is insanely stark raving mad.

Syria is probably going to be ground zero for the next major war IMHO.

To answer your question, this was actually posted 2 days ago. Before the Black Hawk went down I presume.

What is the exact interest in Syria by America. I see none. This may be a simple statement but if we had not invaded Iraq, we would not be stepping in this Mideast poo.

It is inconceivable that President Trump would adopt the most militarily insane policy from both imbeciles Bush and Obama. Who is advising the President?

Don’t tell the truth about 9/11 or the always bushers will send you TONS of “proof” Iraq was involved.

And ignore reality.

Whether we should be in Syria or not doesn’t matter. All these events are leading to the end of the age and even the parties involved don’t realize that they are tools of greater Powers.

The Russians certainly have a flair for dramatic propaganda.
