‘A Perfectly Executed Strike’ – the US, France and Great Britain launch airstrikes on Syria’s chemical weapons

by Al Bloomfield

Saturday April 14, 2018

DAMASCUS, SYRIA – America, Great Britain and France participated jointly in airstrikes against the Syrian regime of President Bashar al-Assad successfully targeting Syria’s chemical weapons program including its research, development and storage facilities. This was in revenge for President Assad’s chemical weapons attack on his own people in the Syrian city of Douma last week. During that gas attack on Saturday, April 7, 2018, dozens of civilian men, women and children were gassed to death and over 500 were left poisoned. This was done in violation of international law and UN Security Council resolutions.

US President Donald J. Trump was completely horrified by the images of dead and gasping children. He declared President Assad to be “Animal Assad” and promised strong action very soon. French President Emmanuel Macron said of the gas attack that a “red line” had been crossed by the Assad regime.

Over 100 missiles were launched against three sites in Syria that were responsible for the production and distribution of chemical weapons. All three were destroyed. The attack by the three NATO allies was organized by President Trump who called the military operation a “perfectly executed strike”. General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, stated that there were no reports of American or Allied casualties during the operation. British Prime Minister Theresa May declared that the air strikes sent, “a clear message that the international community will not stand by and tolerate the use of chemical weapons.”

Sources of information for this report included MSNBC, CNN, ABC, USA Today and Fox News.

  1. It had to be done. That being said, only a tiny fraction of the nearly 500,000,000 people who have been killed in Syria have been killed by chemical weapons. Men, women, children and babies have been mercilessly slaughtered by conventional weapons. Where is our outcry against that?

    • Al, a few preliminaries: I think Trump is A CHANCE at a good America, but not a certainty. I considered obama zero chance at a good America, EXCEPT when his obvious treasons were prevented. (And they were WAY TOO OFTEN, NOT PREVENTED.) If obama was in the White House, my bet would be that the Syrian gassing, both last year and this year, were fabrications to cause more trouble in the Middle East, just as went on continually during the obama defilement, such as “arab spring”. Before obama left the White House, I just thought the Syrian turmoil was more fabrication to make more trouble. Why should I think any different, now? Is Trump part of that manipulation? I don’t know. I hope he’s more honest and pro-American than that. I consider that he’s done a lot of good, so far. Has he now been fooled into acting against Syria? Does he want World War 3, or other war troubles? Was he required to attack Syria? Was the Syrian gassing fabricated (false flag), or real? I don’t know certain answers to those questions, but will give opinion, with fact, to the extent I know anything:

      I think the VERY CRUX of it is the same as the current gun grabber movement, and almost every other bad thing that’s been going on, (even obama himself), the NEW WORLD ORDER. Here’s a small intro to that, as any depth on NWO would be VERY LONG:

      http://www.threeworldwars.com/new-world-order.htm

      The following article is extracted from an excellent analysis of the New World Order by author Ken Adachi which can be found at educate-yourself.org.

      The term New World Order (NWO) has been used by numerous politicians through the ages, and is a generic term used to refer to a worldwide conspiracy being orchestrated by an extremely powerful and influential group of genetically-related individuals (at least at the highest echelons) which include many of the world’s wealthiest people, top political leaders, and corporate elite, as well as members of the so-called Black Nobility of Europe (dominated by the British Crown) whose goal is to create a One World (fascist) Government, stripped of nationalistic and regional boundaries, that is obedient to their agenda. [We like Trump for his nationalistic movement, including his border wall and resistance to immigrant floods to destroy America’s fabric. Has he been pretending to be nationalistic? If he has, he’s gone a long way with it, AND the nwo globalists have gone a long way with hating him. So by now, I’m inclined to think he’s genuinely for America, and against nwo.]

      Listen to globalist banker, Paul Warburg:

      We will have a world government whether you like it or not. The only question is whether that government will be achieved by conquest or consent. (February 17, 1950, as he testified before the US Senate).
      THEIR INTENTION is to effect complete and total control over every human being on the planet and to dramatically reduce the world’s population by two thirds. {I’ve seen this depopulation intention, over and over, stated by the globalists, themselves.} While the name New World Order is the term most frequently used today to loosely refer to anyone involved in this conspiracy, the study of exactly who makes up this group is a complex and intricate one. [It is complex and intricate. I’ve been working on it seriously, for about 5 years, since I think it answers all the motives for most of the world’s evils. AND the reason I bring it up now, is because I consider Syrian trouble in the context of NWO, since it has been clear to me that Middle East troubles are INTENTIONALLY caused by nwo. In fact, look at this statement by George Bush Sr., who said, “We need a new world order.”: THE TRILATERAL COMMISSION AND THE NEW WORLD ORDER
      https://www.antiwar.com/berkman/trilat.html
      THE TRILATERAL COMMISSION AND THE NEW WORLD ORDER. by Gene Berkman. In a speech to Congress and the American people on September 11, 1990, President George Bush outlined the goals his government was pursuing through military intervention in the Middle East. (EXACTLY what has been happening in the Middle East, from Bush and his successors. To me, it’s a disgrace to wreck the homes of middle east people, in order to push this filthy new world order agenda! And I think Syria is just more of it. AND we know now, that it isn’t only in the Middle East. Look how nwo has brought their evils more blatantly to America, preceded by their wreckage in Europe, still ongoing.) For further research sources, please see the side bar on the left.]

      I don’t trust France at all, after electing nwo’s Macron. I have limited trust of Great Britain, since it passed the good idea of Brexit, to leave the nwo’s EU. But Britain is so taken over by islam that I don’t consider it trustworthy. I’m also sure that much of Britain wants nwo, not Brexit. So partnering with those two countries is ZERO COMFORT to me.

      As for UN Security Council, I have even less trust of that. The nwo globalists want the UN to be One World govt. headquarters, as they’ve said.

      I’m very skeptical of USA playing world policeman, some more, ESPECIALLY in the middle east. Whether Syria really needed this policing, or it was more intentional nwo middle east destruction to advance the nwo agenda, USA has done, for years, much more than its “fair share” of policing the world. It was someone else’s turn, by now, ESPECIALLY considering that Bush Sr. said openly that making trouble in the middle east has the purpose of advancing the very evil One World govt. agenda. I agree completely with the above definition of it, and I have no desire to have a one world govt. as ruler over me, and ruler over everyone in the world. That’s playing God. And ONLY GOD IS GOD, not any stupid, deluded humans, who “think” they’re God, and create havoc, as they’ve been doing already, even without having their absurd one world govt!

  2. I feel the airstrike was perfectly justifiable. The Syrian government broke the treaty signed at the Geneva Convention that, in itself, warranted military action. I do not believe the United States should be a world police, but they broke a treaty with United States and when you break your word with United States there must be consequences.

  3. It was definitely the start of something, maybe world war 3. Who knows? We will just have to wait and see.

      • It could have been because Syrian allies- like Russia said it may be “danger to world peace” if the USA, UK & France carried out the strikes. Which they did.

        • I heard the same thing. You might be right. Good recognition. ALSO, about a year ago, I saw on you tube, by sources I think are pretty good (At least try to be good, but might be mistaken on this), that the New World Order, who wanted obama to “take us into the new world order”, as traitor, Henry Kissinger said, have changed their minds, and now want war, instead, with Trump leading into that. I agree with you that it’s a maybe, not a certainty. Even if it’s the evil nwo plan, they don’t always have their way, as we keep fighting them. As they changed the obama plan, they might change their war plan, OR, better yet, BE DEFEATED, not allowing them their war plan! Govt. is currently mostly traitors; so even if Trump is planned to be the nwo war leader, we don’t currently have anyone better for the White House. So whatever you do, don’t buy into the “impeachment” push of the obvious traitors. If the good, USA patriot side starts pushing it, then and only then, it would have to be reconsidered. When enemies of America, who are in America, are pushing for impeachment, then I know I’m not for impeachment.

  4. I agree with MrBloomfield. Syria has been a field of battle for almost 8 years and Europe seems to awake from her deep sleep only now… it’s hard to understand where good and bad, true and false really are in this shameful situation. From a European perspective, this crisis tells us something more about the non existence of Europe (and EU more than ever after Brexit) as an international actor capable of coordinated moves in foreign policy. The game of small regional powers (France with UK and/or Germany, Italy in a weak position, the Visegrad group concerned only not to have too many refugees to shelter……) reminds me of some pre-war scenario of early XX century… just hope to be wrong…

    • I thank you, Chiara. When you speak of the nonexistence of contemporary Europe, are you predicting the eventual collapse of the EU? And when you reference a prewar scenario from the early 20th century, are you referring to the chaos of the Spanish Civil War as a dress rehearsal for a world war? Very insightful commentary! My respect & compliments to you, signora.

      • Thank you MrBloomfield. European Union, in the same words of some of its founders, “is about economics, not about politics”. Whenever it faces serious political crisis (Balkan wars, Syria, second Gulf War, refugees crisis…) its member nations naturally tend not to stay together and search for a common stance, but to follow their own appetite for hegemony (France overall, but also Uk even before Brexit and other…). Germany is different, their attempt for continental hegemony is not of a military kind (so far…) but closely tied to the dogmas of the EU Central Bank (see the Greek financial crisis and its management by the trojka). Anyone can easily understand that these are not the best premises for the future of EU. My historical remind was more close to the “waltzer of powers” immediately before Ist world war (around 1914). But yes, in the worst case, lack of vision and increasing populism and hate in EU societies could eventually lead us to a civil war scenario. Still, hope to be wrong after all.

  5. I guess we live in a visual age. Trump was horrified about the video of the Gasping and dead children but Assad had used chemical weapons 6 times before the US England and France launched this attack. Geneva Convention aside it’s pure b*******. America attacked Iraq which was a violation of the Geneva Convention because Iraq did nothing to America. Attacking a Sovereign Nation without provocation is against the Geneva Convention. So I guess it’s okay when we do it. There are hundreds of thousands of chunks of dead children men women blown to bits, that seems to be okay. If there’s a video of them being gassed oh we have to do something! I hope Trump doesn’t see any more videos of Syria or he may put us into a situation that we can’t come out of without a few thousand mushroom clouds.

    • Your brilliant, cerebral invectives have been much missed. The West has an obsession about gassing and being gassed. It’s a cultural left over from the sci-fi horrors of World War 1 where ordinary people could be gassed like cockroaches and no one (in this waning ‘Age of Chivalry’) seemed to think too badly of it at the time.

  6. Well Mr. A. Bloomfield, you know my feelings about the supposed video. I think it was staged but I was not there. Our government and other governments believe the incident happen. My problem is where is the President’s emotions when PUERTO RICO just had a blackout. No running water, no power, and no school for their kids. Where is his compassion for these Americans? So we spend millions of dollars attacking another country whose ruler is still in power (bombing had no effect just destroyed some buildings) President Trump wants to spend millions on a wall. Again, our fellow Americans in Puerto Rico have lost jobs, love ones, medical assistance, deprived of an education, housing, and basic supplies of life. No Air Condition, again I say NO Air Condition. I am upset only because it’s Puerto Rico today and tomorrow it may be Florida. We barely escape a catastrophic disaster. Put the money into your country. No more wasting money on wars, walls, and porkbelly policies. Now the question was do I think we should have done the strike. Hell to the Naw !!!
