BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:30 P.M.) – Russia has built up its forces around the Mediterranean Sea in response to reports of the U.S., France, and Great Britain preparing to attack Syria.

According to Yoruk Isik of the Bosphorus Observer, the Russian Navy has sent another armada of ships towards Syria’s territorial waters in order to increase the strength of their forces around the country.

Isik said that the powerful Russian warships, Admiral Grigorovich and Admiral Essen class frigate, were spotted transiting the Bosphorus Strait en route to the Port of Tartous:

This latest move by the Russian Navy comes just 24 hours after they sent three ships en route to the Port of Tartous in western Syria.

With the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) preparing to launch a large-scale offensive in northwest Syria, Russia fears that the jihadist rebels may fake a chemical weapons attack in order to get the U.S. and its allies to attack the government.

I suppose a false flag in Idlib would take the heat off the political chaos in the FUKUS regimes 🙂

Would be an EPIC kick in the crotch if Turkey sent its Navy to hang around with Russia’s!

Actually cutting off transit of the Bosporus Strait would trap NATO ships already deployed in or trying to reach the Black Sea. I do believe any attack this time around will see conventional weapons sinking all ships participating in the attack and NATO land operational bases as in Qatar as well.

Trump doesn’t do anything, he doesn’t rule anything. He is just a puppet. He cannot do anything in indeed. Since John Fitzgerald Kennedy, USA hasn’t had a single real president. All of them have been puppets…

It’s not because of Trump that Putin sends an armada, it’s because of Turkey which has a powerful navy and threatens to seriously intervene in Idlib if SAA Trump is not a madman at all. I’m nowhere near from agreeing with all his politics, thus, any serious observer will CLEARLY notice he has very clever strategies in international politics. Oh, he’ll pi$$ off the establishment but it works at obtaining what he wants. Actually, just spend 1 or 2 hours watching some of his interviews from the 70’s to when he started TV-shows… He wasn’t loud mouthed at all and… Read more »
