TENSIONS ESCALATE: U.S NAVAL BATTLE-GROUP ARRIVES OFF SYRIAN COAST

10

A US naval group, led by the aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman, entered the Mediterranean Sea on Sunday. Military analyst Konstantin Sivkov points to the possible goal of the aircraft carrier.

Earlier, the US Navy reported that the naval group led by the aircraft carrier Harry S. Truman entered the eastern Mediterranean Sea to participate in operations against ISIS in Syria and Iraq.

For the Russian analyst, the naval force may have moved to the Mediterranean Sea to prepare an attack with cruise missiles and even aviation bombs against the Syrian army.

“I suppose it’s really about preparations for a cruise missile attack. They might also use manned aviation.” As the previous attacks have shown, a cruise missile attack is not efficient, so they will use aviation to protect the missiles when they attack,” Konstantin Sivkov said.

According to Sivkov, the United States will use drones as well as airplanes that will attack air defense systems with anti-radar missiles, “that is, the whole set of measures to assure the missile attack.”

“There will probably be an attack on Syria’s own air defense systems, and then Syrian troops may be attacked, but by manned aviation using standard bombs,” he added.

The United States, Britain and France launched on April 14 more than 100 missiles against Syrian targets in response to the alleged use of chemical weapons by Damascus against civilians in the city of Douma in Eastern Ghouta that supposedly occurred on April 7. Most of the projectiles launched were intercepted by Syrian air defense systems. The allegations were later proven to be false by international experts visiting the scene.

The United States has also attacked Syria on other occasions, usually when the Syrian Army are making rapid progress against terrorist forces. Washington justifies the attacks supposedly because of chemical weapons used by the Syrian Army which conveniently always occurs when the Syrian Army are about to win a major battle, not at the beginning of the battle.

The dumbest nation in the history of the world is determined to set the world on fire. Given the policy confusion it’s not easy to figure out what they intend.

Just in time for that planned gas attack the white helmets are arranging, to be blamed on Syria.

Does Syria possess weapons capable of sinking these ships?If so and an attack against Syrian troops is sure to come, then they should sink the ships.

They possess the weapons to wipe out the US bases on the Syrian soil.
The answer to the next attack should be al Tanaf and Hassake bases, especially.
Wipe those out and the parade of body bags and flag-draped coffins heads to Dover AFB and mortuary.

Any attack on Syria has to be de-conflicted with Russian military or the Russians assume it is an attack on them. So, the targets will be known. Makes for a dicey attack by US.

Why do they want to attack? Because they are setting up another “chemical attack”.
How else would they know an attack needs to be answered with a missile attack? because they create the false flag chem attacks, all of them!

Also, the Trumpster wants to show Putin who’s boss before they have their “summit”, sometime soon.

Time for Putin to play hardball with the hegemon. Give the Syrians all the rockets and short range ballistic missiles to wipe out the US bases. It changes the calculus for the US attack. They would have to wage a war all over Syria. That is untenable to Russia and Iran, Hezbollah and Iraq. The ME will go up in flames and the US will suffer thousands of casualties and humiliating ship and plane losses.

I don’t think this attack will occur. Certainly, not as this article lays it out.

Destroy Israel and the Yanks will fold as will the global economy. Assad can do it and with Hezbollah and Iran as support it is good bye Israel. As soon as the missiles a sent to Syria then Syria should send their missiles to Israel.

Only if they attack Russian military and installations. The US only beats up on small nations.
