The criminally insane governments of the US, UK, and
France are sending a flotilla of missile ships, submarines, and an aircraft
carrier to attack Syria in the face of Russian warnings. What is the likely
outcome of this outrageous act of agression based entirely on an orchestrated
and transparent lie, an act of reckless aggression that is more irresponsible
and more dangerous than anything done by the demonized Nazi regime in Germany?
There are no protests from European governments. There
are no protesters in the streets of European and US cities. Congress has not
reminded Trump that he has been given no authority by Congress to launch a
military attack on a soverign country that is likely to ignite a war, possibly
World War 3. Everyone seems content with the prospect of the end of the world.
The moronic American presstitutes are egging it on.
Here are possible outcomes:
(1) The Russians, trapped in the deluded belief that
facts and evidence matter to the West and that common sense will prevail,
accept the attacks. This outcome is the most dangerous of all, because this
outcome will encourage more attacks until Russia is backed into a corner and
has no alternative to a direct nuclear attack on the US.
(2) Russia takes the initiative in the brewing
conflict and escorts the US missile ship, USS Donald Cook, out of attack range
of Syria before the attack flotilla arrives and declares a perimeter line
beyond which the Western flotilla becomes target for attack. This should force
a showdown between Trump’s warmonger government and the US Congress that would
challenge Trump’s ability to unilaterally commit the US to war.
(3) Russia escorts the Donald Cook away from the scene
and simultaneously wipes out the military capabilities of Saudi Arabia and
Israel, removing Washington’s ground-based allies in its attack on Syria, thus
loading the odds in Russia’s favor, and making it clear that Russia is going to
pre-empt attack, not respond to one.
(4) Russia, in the deluded belief that it must prove
itself in the right, accepts the attack and its unpredictable damage before
responding. This outcome is almost as bad as the first, as this lets the war
start in contrast to options (2) and (3) which have some possibility of
preventing a US/Russian confrontation by forcing common sense on the Americans.
(5) Senior German politicians inform Merkel that
Britain and France’s support of the US strike on Syria could commit NATO to a
war with Russia. Germany has had one devastating experience with the Russian
military and does not need another. They could pressure Merkel to withdraw
Germany from NATO. The resulting consternation/confusion would likely halt the
US attack on Syria/Russia.
(6) The US Joint Chiefs of Staff could easily and
honestly conclude that in the event of a Russian response to an attack on
Syria, the entire flotilla could be lost, carrier included, inflicting a
humiliating defeat on US arms, and that in view of this possbility, the Joint
Chiefs recommend against the announced attack. Possibly this has occurred and
explains Trump’s latest tweets, which suggest that doubts might have entered
Even if a hopeful outcome such as (5) and (6) occurs,
we are left with the dangerous situation that some elements in the US and UK
governments were able to orchestrate two events—the alleged Skripal poisoning
and the alleged Assad chemical attack—and use the events to leverage unsupported
accusations against Russia and Syria as justifications for an illegal military
attack on a sovereign country. That such an outrageous orchestration is
possible proves that there is no democracy or constraint on government in the
US and UK.
