Russia Puts Army On High Alert As Anglo-American Axis Readies To Attack Syria – OpEd


Russia has put their forces on high alert as the Ango-American axis are readying for potential military action against Bashar Al-Assad by maneuvering attack ships and fighter jets into position off the coast of Syria.

Following yet another chemical weapons hoax, this time in Douma on Saturday, the USS Donald Cook, a guided missile destroyer is in position for any military action within Syria, while the USS Laboon, an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer which was previously deployed to Libya after the Benghazi attack, is also in close proximity as is the USS Georgia submarine.

Meanwhile, an RAF operated KC2 tanker, which is used to refuel fighter jets, is also lurking off the coast of Lebanon.

In a related story, Russia has reportedly put its armed forces on a heightened state of alert in response to increasing tensions over Syria and the ongoing fallout over the Skripal poisoning hoax perpetrated by British Intel.

“Starting to hear isolated reports from within #Russia that the nation has put her armed forces on a heightened stage of alert,” tweeted the Intel Crab account, which is an aggregator for Strategic Sentinel, a national security analysis group.

“Command and control systems have been deployed to major military installations,” a source told TASS, adding that the Russian Air Force is closely monitoring the presence of U.S. warships and submarines from the Russian naval facility in Tartus, Syria.

Meanwhile, Russia has launched massive combat drills across the country.

“Russia’s Defense Ministry said in an online statement Monday that it had launched drills stretching from Siberia to the Urals and the Volga region, as well as in Russian military bases in Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan,” reports the Moscow Times.

According to the report, Russian soldiers will put their combat skills they learned in Syria to the test during the nationwide exercises.

President Trump commented on the tensions today when he told the press, “We are studying that situation extremely closely. We are meeting with our military and everyone else that will be making some major decisions over the next 24 to 48 hours.”

    I wish I had noticed this was an “opinion” rather than a factual journal piece. I wouldn’t have wasted my time. It says the chemical attack was a hoax. Well it wasn’t!! 40 men, women and children died. We need less opinion and false news and more truthful journalism!

    I see what a wonderfully unbiased news source you are, with anything Anti-Russian in viewpoint being termed a “hoax” and anything Pro-Russian is the “Golden Truth.” Get real, you are being played like a fiddle by Russian propaganda. The Russians were the only ones who had any reason what-so-ever to attack that Russian dissident in the UK. And the situation in Syria is not so one sided as you claim either. Oh well, I know I am talking to deaf ears, so just keep on being a stooge for Russia, it suits you fine.

      You don’t seem to understand that the whole purpose of false flag attacks is to cast blame on a third party.

    It makes no sense for Assad or the Russia government to gas Syrians or poison ex-double agents. But those (the UK government or “israel”, for example) who want the US military to bomb Syria could benefit.
