US State Department threatens “immediate response” for chemical attack in Syria

WASHINGTON D.C., The United States – State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert has said that there needs to be “an immediate response” against Syria for the chemical weapon attacks that occurred in the East Ghouta town of Duma that is occupied by the Jaish al-Islam terrorist group.

“Reports from a number of contacts and medical personnel on the ground indicate a potentially high number of casualties, including among families hiding in shelters. These reports, if confirmed, are horrifying and demand an immediate response by the international community,” Nauert said in a release.

This comes as White House Homeland Security and Counterterrorism Adviser Thomas Bossert said in an interview on ABC’s “This Week” that he would not “take anything off the table” with Syria.

This comes as Donald Trump in a series of tweets that can be seen here threatened Syria, Iran and Russia by saying they have to “pay a big price”.

The deranged statements coming from the United States comes despite their being no evidence that the Syrian government was responsible, nor even an investigation being conducted.

However, for many reasons provided, it is highly unlikely that the Syrian government was responsible. Read the reasons why here.

    The US and UK don’t need any investigation; they can magically determine that Russia is at fault every time.

    Who and what are the US Coalition of Terror terrified of that the SAA and Russia will find in Douma ?

      They are meant to have a few US, UK and French military chemists captured. Funny that, who is playing with chemical weapons and it is not Russia.

    They tried that, this time last year and how did that work. That was when Russia was patient and allowing Trump to settle in. 60 tomahawks, one flipped in the tube, 36 went absent without leave and 23 arrived, with minimal attention. Syrian air forces were using the airport, a few hours later. Duff and ineffective tomahawks, or did something greet them on the way?

    Next escort, will have Russian anger, with a message attached.

    I hope they do go for it, and accept the comeback. Get all the games and drama out the way and then watch them scarper.

    President Trump is mad, insane, irrational and unable to lead effectively. His megalomania is out of control. He cannot reason beyond the hyperbola of the press even though he recognized the false news reports about Russia meddling in the 2016 U. S. presidential election.

    We are seeing history repeat itself going as far back as the late 1930’s where Emperor Hirohito was manipulated by the Imperial Japanese Army generals to make war. Trump = Hirohito on steroids; his war monger advisors and the Pentagon = General Tojo and his staff.

    Goodbye world; life on planet Earth will become like the video game series Fallout: 2, 3, 4, New Vegas, etc.

    Looks like they are trying to attack Syria so they can get a military response from Russia, and then escalate to WWIII.

    “…there needs to be “an immediate response”…”

    Quick, immediately, before too many realise what’s going on.
