BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:15 A.M.) – The U.S. Navy fired more than 50 tomahawk cruise missiles at the Shayrat Military Airport in rural east Homs, destroying most of this imperative installation located southeast of the provincial capital.

What we know so far:

  • U.S. missiles struck Shayrat’s airfields, aircraft hangar, and fuel tankers
  • Destroyed fuel tankers caused several explosions and a large fire that has not been put out yet
  • At least 15 fighter jets have been damaged or destroyed
  • Six military personnel have been killed, some non-Syrian
  • Russians were present at the airbase when it was attacked

More details to come…

this irrational action in response to nothing else than a patented false flag where US place themselves as investigator, attorney, judge and executioner simply violates UN charter. As USA is part on the UNSC, an UNGA meeting shall be required to in order to consider sanctions against the USA : this is an act of aggression against a sovereign state without UN mandate based on a burden of more than dubious clues while everybody knows that US already pointed the fingers on ‘rebels’ for the 2013 Goutha sarin attack!

More problems than that. My profile lost 10.000! points last Monday. Picked up 6 since last Monday. No idea what they give for each post?

It is not because of the points but because it means that the data base is not in order. Security breach also?

Yesterday I had a lot of 505. Well, this can happen but I always use the same browser and if it does not work I try with another and know ways to fix things.

But that way I cannot read or post.

I hope it turns out that there were no Russians at the base that was source of the alleged chemical attack. If the claim that the Syrians were behind the chemical attack are eventually proven true, the presence of Russians at the base at the time of attack would be used to tie Russia to the chemical attack itself.

Lets hope the early reports of Russians present prove to be false.
