RUMORS OF WAR: Iran planning to launch a barrage of missiles against Israel

RUMORS OF WAR:  Iran planning to launch a barrage of missiles against Israel
Iran is preparing a barrage of missiles to launch against Israeli military positions from Syrian territory, Hebrew media reported Sunday, citing defense officials.  Iran plans to avenge alleged Israeli strikes on its bases in Syria, Ma’ariv defense analyst Alon Ben David said, by targeting military targets in northern Israel.
As of now, Israel isn’t “on the eve of war against Iran,” he said, “but the Iranians do want revenge for their losses.”  Iran plans to use Shiite militias already deployed in Syria along with experts from Hezbollah, according to Channel 2 News military analyst Roni Daniel. The proxies would be overseen by general Qasem Soleimani, commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps abroad.

RUMORS OF WAR: Israel and Iran on Path to War as Mideast Tinderbox Awaits Spark

RUMORS OF WAR: Israel and Iran on Path to War as Mideast Tinderbox Awaits Spark
There have been coups and revolutions, external invasions and proxy conflicts, but the Middle East hasn’t seen a head-to-head war between major regional powers since the 1980s.  There’s a growing risk that one is about to break out in Syria, pitting Israel against Iran. The Islamic Republic’s forces are entrenching there, after joining the fight to prop up President Bashar al-Assad. The Jewish state,
perceiving a direct threat on its border, is subjecting them to an escalating barrage of airstrikes. Nobody expects those strikes to go unanswered. The path to escalation is clear, and the rhetoric is apocalyptic. “We will demolish every site where we see an Iranian attempt to position itself,’’ Israel’s Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman told the London-based Saudi newspaper Elaph, adding that the Iranian regime is “living its final days.’’

WATCH: Netanyahu given power to declare war in ‘extreme circumstances’
 May 2, 2018
 Print  Email  26 Comments
The Knesset on Monday gave the prime minister the authority to declare war or order a major military operation in “extreme” situations by consulting only the defense minister, and not via a full cabinet vote as the law had previously required.

RUMORS OF WAR: Israel and Iran conflict could bring one of the worst wars the Middle East has ever seen

RUMORS OF WAR: Israel and Iran conflict could bring one of the worst wars the Middle East has ever seen
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday said Israeli intelligence had obtained a trove of “secret” documents outlining a clandestine nuclear program in Iran. On Sunday, Syria got rocked by a missile attack that appeared to ignite a munitions depot hard enough to register as a 2.6 magnitude earthquake and is believed to have killed dozens of Iranians. Experts say the strike was most likely carried out by Israel.

Though Tehran has denied that Iranians died in the strike, a more aggressive posture toward Iran by Israel could bring about a major clash that experts say might lead to the biggest war the Middle East has ever seen. The perpetrator of Sunday’s attack hasn’t been confirmed. Israel rarely takes credit for strikes within Syria, though it maintains that it will strike at any Iranian activity there that it deems a threat.

WAR DRUMS: Israel ready to bomb Iran if necessary
Israeli defense officials have told their American and Russian counterparts that if Iranian-backed forces attack Israel from inside Syria, Jerusalem will not hold back from retaliating with direct strikes against Tehran or other targets in Iran. The officials delivered the message ahead of a national security statement expected Monday from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in response to Iranian
threats to hit Israel after recent strikes on Tehran-backed assets in Syria, according to a report by Haaretz, an Israeli newspaper. The developments come amid growing concern in Washington that Israel and Iran are on the verge of a clash that could spill dangerously beyond Syria, where there were reports Monday that missile strikes had killed more than two-dozen mostly Iranian forces supporting the Syrian government of Bashar Assad.

RUMORS OF WAR: 80,000 Iranian fighters’ could launch ground invasion to break up Israel

RUMORS OF WAR: 80,000 Iranian fighters’ could launch ground invasion to break up Israel
The shock revelation of an alleged Iranian base in Syria, close to the Israeli border, holding up to 80,000 fighters has threatened to push the world closer to an outbreak of conflict, according to expert commentators on the BBC.  The Israeli ambassador to the UN revealed earlier this week a photo of an alleged Iranian base near Damascus, holding up to 80,000 fighters. In response, Israel insisted the country would launch a military strike to prevent Tehran from launching a ground invasion across the
nearby border. Ambassador Danny Danon presented the aerial photograph on Thursday, telling the UN Security Council: “There are over 80,000 extremists from all over the Middle East who are members of Shia militias in Syria under Iranian control. “It is at this base, just over five miles from Damascus, where these dangerous extremists are trained and then assigned their missions of terror throughout Syria and the region.”

DEVELOPING: Military targets in Syria struck by unidentified aircraft
Powerful explosions have been heard in the countryside of Hama and Aleppo provinces, the Syrian state news agency reports. The state media says military bases there were hit by rockets launched by an unspecified enemy.  The alleged attacks were reported by Syria’s Sana news agency on Sunday evening. Citing a military source, it said that “a new aggression with hostile missiles” took place at around 10:30 pm local time, targeting military positions in the Hama and Aleppo villages.  A Syrian law enforcement
source told RIA Novosti that the army’s munition depots were hit, in what was most likely an airstrike. The source said one of the targeted military sites was a munition depot belonging to the Syrian Army’s 47th Brigade. A fire at the depot broke out as a result of the attack, he said. Another target was reportedly a munition depot to the east of Aleppo, in northern Syria, located between the Al-Malikiayh and Al-Nayrab airport.

RUMORS OF WAR: US Secretary of Defense warns of coming war between Israel and Iran

RUMORS OF WAR: US Secretary of Defense warns of coming war between Israel and Iran
Direct conflict between Israeli and Iranian forces is increasingly likely in Syria as Tehran pursues a permanent military presence there, US Secretary of Defense James Mattis warned on Thursday.  Addressing a congressional panel before hosting his Israeli counterpart, Avigdor Liberman, at the Pentagon, Mattis said it was “very likely” from his perspective, “because Iran continues to do its proxy work there through Hezbollah.”   Receiving Liberman, Mattis told reporters that he saw no reason for Iran to ship advanced missiles to Hezbollah through Syria except to threaten Israel.  “I can see how it
might start, but I am not sure when or where,” the secretary told lawmakers. Mattis then echoed Liberman’s warning from earlier in the day, issued through a Saudi newspaper, in which he said Israeli forces would strike Tehran if Iranian missiles ever hit Tel Aviv. The two met at the Pentagon after Liberman met with US President Donald Trump’s national security advisor, John Bolton; his special representative for international negotiations, Jason Greenblatt; and his son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, at the White House.

RUMORS OF WAR: Arms shipments from Iran into Syria may be used against Israel
US intelligence is monitoring shipments of weapons systems from Iran into Syria that might be used by Bashar Assad or Iranian forces, CNN reported on Wednesday.  According to the report, the United States and Israel fear the cargo could contain arms that may eventually be directed against Israel. The flights were tracked in the days following the US’s April 14 strike on Syrian regime targets.
According to the CNN report, at least two flights by Syrian Air Force IL-76 cargo jets, as well as one Iranian cargo jet, “caught US attention.” Weapons shipments from Iran to Syria are not uncommon. The US Treasury Department has already blacklisted Iran Air, Mayan Air and Yas Air for supporting the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

Iranian Naval Commander Threatens To Sink US Ships, Create “Catastrophic Situation” If Trump Kills Deal

Iranian Naval Commander Threatens To Sink US Ships, Create “Catastrophic Situation” If Trump Kills Deal
President Donald Trump offered some of his most bellicose rhetoric yet about Iran on Tuesday when he said Iran would have “bigger problems than they have ever had before” if the country’s leadership dared to restart its nuclear program following a US pull-out of the JCPOA (otherwise known as the Iran deal), per the Times of Israel.  And today, a top Iranian general hit back at Trump with an aggressive threat to
sink US Navy ships, while warning that the US would find itself in a “catastrophic situation” if it withdraws from the deal and reimposes economic sanctions.  “The actual information that the Americans have about us is much less than what they think they have. When will they figure this out? When it is too late,” the Revolutionary Guard Corps’s navy commander, Admiral Ali Fadavim, told Iranian television on Saturday.

RUMORS OF WAR: Russia to move air defenses to Syria ‘soon,’ warns Israel against attack …
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has denied reports that Moscow will supply Syria with S-300 anti-aircraft defense systems “soon” after a senior Russian official warned Israel that it would “suffer catastrophic consequences” if it attacks the system.  TASS News Agency quoted Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov as saying on Monday Moscow had not yet decided whether it would deliver the advanced systems to Syria, but that it would not be a secret if it took such a decision.  “We know what
President Vladimir Putin said. He has discussed such matters with an official of our Defense Ministry from the standpoint of preventing a situation where Syria might turn out insufficiently prepared for aggressive attacks, like the one that occurred on April 14. It remains to be seen what decisions will be made by the Russian leadership and Syrian officials,” he said. According to Lavrov, Moscow has warned the US and Europe of carrying out additional strikes in Syria, but “certainly, one should be prepared to see more provocations.”

RUMORS OF WAR: Israel pulls fighter jets from drill in Alaska amid tensions with Iran
According to a statement by Air Force public affairs officer Kitsana Dounglomchan, Israel’s Air Force decided not to send F-15 fighter jets to the two-week-long drill, which will run between April 26 – May 11, out of Eielson Air Force base in Fairbanks and Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Anchorage.  “Despite this change, we are looking forward to hosting the Israeli contingent that will be partaking in Red Flag-Alaska 18-1,” Dounglomchan was quoted by local media as saying.  The Red Flag exercises take place
several times a year bringing together US and international forces for drills on realistic simulated combat situations. A statement released by Pacific Air Forces, the Alaskan Command’s higher headquarters which directs the exercise, said that over 60 aircraft “from more than a dozen units” will be taking part in the drill. Israel regularly participates in US Air Force’s main Red Flag exercises at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada ….

RUMORS OF WAR: Russia and Iran prepare multi-level response for US-led precision strike on Syria
Moscow acted swiftly to boost its ties with Tehran and beef up the Syrian military in reaction to the US-British-French surgical missile strike on Syria’s chemical sites on Saturday, April 12. DEBKAfile’s analysts report that when Russian and Iranian officials warned of “consequences,” they were already on the move:  Saturday morning, while cruise missiles rained down on Syrian chemical sites, a Syrian-Hizballah force, backed by Russian mercenaries, renewed their push to cross the Euphrates River and
snatch from US control the east Syrian Konok gas and Al-Umar oil fields. There were initial clashes with the US-backed Syrian Democratic Army (SDF). Two days earlier, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s close adviser Ali Akbar Velyati pointed the way when he told a news conference in Damascus: East of the Euphrates is “a very important area. We hope big steps will be taken in order to liberate this area and expel the occupying Americans.”

WAR DRUMS: 4000 US Troops Launch Massive Military Drill On Edge Of Syria
A little over three weeks ago, we published a report on leaked images of U.S. military equipment arriving in Jordan’s Aqaba Industrial Port via the vehicle carrier vessel “Liberty pride” for the upcoming participation in the annual war drill “Eager Lion.”  To conclude, we asked a straightforward question: with the return of John Bolton, is war imminent in Syria?  “Jordan is a major player bordering southwestern Syria but has been silent as the Russian-backed Syrian regime expanded territorial gains from terrorist groups in the eastern Ghouta region. Now, Jordan seems like it is
preparing for a conflict with Syria, as the United States Armed Forces have recently unloaded large amounts of tanks and personnel carriers. Nevertheless, with the return of John Bolton, is war imminent on the Jordan–Syria border?”  Fast forward to today when two days after the United States, Britain, and France lobbed more than 100 missiles into Syria, the Jordan Armed Forces- Arab Army (JAF) kicked off the twelve-day Eager Lion 2018 military exercise with the United States at its side.

DEVELOPING: Russian warships laden with tanks, military trucks sail towards Middle East…
Two Russian warships laden with military vehicles have been spotted en route to Syria after Friday’s US-led airstrikes obliterated three suspected chemical weapons sites.  An Alligator-landing ship was pictured cruising down The Bosphorus on Sunday as the world awaits Vladimir Putin’s response to this week’s co-ordinated military action against Syria. The vessel was spotted on its way to the Russian naval base at Tartus on the north Syrian coast.  On its fourth deployment of Russian military equipment to the war-
torn country the ship was seen laden with tanks, trucks, ambulances and an IED radar.  A yellow RoRo Alexandr Tkachenko was also pictured heading for Tartus carrying high-speed patrol boats, a temporary bridge structure, and several trucks. The images were posted on social media by Bosphorus-based naval observer Yörük Işık. They come in wake of Friday’s US-led campaign against Bashar al-Assad’s regime and a chemical weapons attack that brutally murdered 75 civilians.

US warns it is ‘locked and loaded’ if Assad uses chemical weapons again

US warns it is ‘locked and loaded’ if Assad uses chemical weapons again
Donald Trump has hailed the coordinated US, British and French air strikes on Syria as “mission accomplished”.  The military action was launched in the early hours of Saturday morning to punish the Syrian regime for a chemical weapons attack. The US president said the military action by US, British and French jets had been “perfectly executed”.
At a press conference in Downing Street on Saturday morning, Theresa May said: “There is no graver decision for a prime minister than to commit our forces to combat and this is the first time I have had to do so.” Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, said the strike had a “destructive influence on the entire system of international relations” and called for an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council.

Russia claims Syria air defences shot down 71 of 103 missiles

Russia claims Syria air defences shot down 71 of 103 missiles
The Russian military has claimed that the Syrian air defenses, whose most modern weapon is a three-decades-old Russian-supplied anti-aircraft system, shot down 71 of 103 missiles fired by the US and its allies, the UK and France.  As further details began to emerge about the sites targeted by the US-led strikes, Col-Gen Sergei Rudskoi of the Russian military said the strikes had not caused any casualties and that Syrian military facilities suffered only minor damage.
Although it was not possible to verify the claims, the most up-to-date system that Moscow has supplied to the Syrian regime is the short-range Pantsir S-1, which has an anti-missile capability. Russia said its advisers had spent the last 18 months completely rebuilding the Syrian air defense system, and said the high number of intercepted rockets spoke to “the high effectiveness of the weaponry in Syria and the excellent training of Syrian servicemen prepared by our specialists”.

Putin calls Syria air strikes ‘act of aggression’ as Russia warns of ‘consequences’ over bombing raids
Russia has warned there “will be consequences” following airstrikes on Syria launched by the joint military forces of the US, Britain and France in response to a chemical attack on civilians. Vladimir Putin denounced the strike after his ambassador to the United States said the bombings were an insult to the president as the three nations joined forces in response to the “evil and despicable crimes of a monster”.  Britain, US and France launched more than
100 airstrikes in a “one-time shot” against Syria early this morning. General Joseph Dunford confirmed three targets had been struck at a Pentagon briefing shortly after Trump’s announcement. These include a scientific research facility in Damascus, which is allegedly linked to the production of chemical and biological weapons, a chemical weapons storage close to Homs and a chemical weapons equipment storage sight and command post, also near Homs.

RUMORS OF WAR: Israeli Military on High Alert Amid Iran Threats

RUMORS OF WAR: Israeli Military on High Alert Amid Iran Threats
Israel’s military was put on high alert amid heightened tensions along the northern border and with Iran threatening to avenge an airstrike on a Syrian air base believed to have killed 14 people, including 7 Iranian military personnel.  Russia, Syria and Iran have all said Israel carried out the Monday, April 9, 2018, missile barrage on the T-4 Air Base near Palmyra in central Syria. American sources also confirmed that Israel had conducted the strike and that they were notified of it in advance. Israeli
officials refused to comment on the strike. Following the assault, a top adviser to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei threatened Israel: “The crimes will not remain unanswered,” Ali Akbar Velayati said during a visit to Syria. Iran’s Foreign Ministry also accused Israel of “flagrant” aggression in Syria following the attack. Israeli officials did not appear to be taking the threat of a retaliatory attack—either by Iran or its proxy, the Hezbollah terrorist group—lightly.

Russian Navy chief threatens US warship: ‘We have no fear’…
A torpedo attack could cause “considerable damage” to USS Donald Cook, a guided missile destroyer operating near Syria, Vladimir Masorin, former commander-in-chief of the Russian Navy, has said.  Although Russia probably won’t be required to “sink” the Arleigh Burke-class warship, Masorin said the weapon would be effective nonetheless.  Masorin, who commanded the Caspian Flotilla between 1996
and 2002, warned US President Donald Trump to refrain from bombing Syria over the chemical attack. Waging war is a “dangerous thing” for the US who live in a “completely different world” to Russia, whose Navy has “no fear”, he said on Friday. His bellicose comments come after Trump warned Russia missiles “will be coming” in response to the chemical attack blamed on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

WAR DRUMS: Trump Deploys Warships To Middle East… Largest US Strike Force in 15 Years
A U.S. air and naval strike force — the largest since the 2003 Iraq War — is headed toward Syria, according to a Times of London report.  Less than a week after a suspected chemical attack on civilians in the rebel-held suburb of Damascus, an armada of 12 United States warships, including aircraft carrier USS Harry S Truman, sailed from the United States in the direction of the Middle East. “(T)he USS
Harry S Truman, a nuclear-powered carrier with 90 aircraft and five escort ships, which set sail from Norfolk, Virginia, on Wednesday, could be included in any action by the end of next week,” the Times reported.  On Wednesday, President Donald Trump warned Russia that missiles will be headed for Syria in retaliation against the suspected chemical attack.

Airstrike hits Syrian airbase after suspected chemical weapons attack
April 9, 2018

Airstrike hits Syrian airbase after suspected chemical weapons attack
Global Panorama / CCL
The Levant is teetering on the edge of war after an airstrike hit a Syrian airbase on Monday, killing 14, including 4 Iranian fighters and 3 Syrian officers, according to Syrian state media reports.

Syria and Russia blamed Israel for the strike, which followed weekend reports of a chemical weapons attack in the Syrian town of Douma on Saturday that killed dozens of civilians, including children.

The atrocity in Douma has provoked an international outcry against Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, whom many blame for it. That attack came almost a year after U.S. President Donald Trump ordered an airstrike on Syria over a similar chemical weapons attack.

Airstrike on Syrian base kills 14
Russia’s Defense Ministry has joined Syrian state media in accusing Israeli jets of firing eight missiles — five of which were deflected — at the T4 base in central Homs on Monday. Syrian state media originally accused the U.S. of Monday’s airstrike, but later dropped the allegation after the Pentagon denied involvement, blaming Israel instead.

“At this time, the Department of Defense is not conducting air strikes in Syria,” the Pentagon said in a statement. “However, we continue to closely watch the situation [and] support the ongoing diplomatic efforts to hold those who use chemical weapons, in Syria and otherwise, accountable.”

Israel has hammered Syria numerous times since 2012, mostly targeting supply lines that allegedly funnel Iranian weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon. Israel has accused Syria of enabling Iranian entrenchment near its border.

Israel also previously attacked the same base in February, after it allegedly deployed an Iranian drone that sailed into Israeli airspace. The February strikes prompted a response from Syria that ended with an Israeli plane getting shot down for the first time in 30 years.

Do you think President Trump should stand with Israel?
Yes
No

Middle Eastern theater heats up
President Trump warned on Twitter that Syria and its allies — namely Russia and Iran — would pay a “big price” for using chemical weapons against the civilians in Douma.

Trump vowed Sunday to make a “strong, joint response” with France, leaving the question of U.S. withdrawal in doubt:

Many dead, including women and children, in mindless CHEMICAL attack in Syria. Area of atrocity is in lockdown and encircled by Syrian Army, making it completely inaccessible to outside world.

President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible for backing Animal Assad. Big price to pay. Open area immediately for medical help and verification. Another humanitarian disaster for no reason whatsoever. SICK!

Asked about the possibility of U.S. military intervention, Trump said, “Nothing is off the table.” In a similar vein, Defense Secretary James Mattis told reporters who asked about the possibility of a U.S. airstrike on Syria, “I don’t rule out anything right now.”

The president promised on Monday that he and his administration would make a decision soon on how to move forward following the Douma attacks, for which the Syrian government has denied responsibility. The U.N. Security Council is also set to hold an emergency meeting on the chemical attack today.

“We’ll be making that decision very quickly,” Trump said on Monday. “Probably by the end of today. We cannot allow atrocities like that.”

These chemical weapons attacks are absolutely savage and inhumane. President Trump should take a tough stance on Assad and Putin before tensions worsen in the region.

WAR DRUMS: Syria prepares for war as Assad moves military jets in response to Trump missile threat
The Syrian military has moved some of its air assets to avoid the fallout from potential missile strikes following Donald Trump’s threats of military action against Syria, US officials revealed.  The officials declined further comment and it was not clear whether the Syrian moves would impact US military planning for potential action against Syria over a suspected poison gas attack, Reuters reported. But this
move could limit the damages that a joint airstrike conducted by the US and its allies would have on the Syrian army, should the Western countries decide to turn words into actions. A similar assessment was delivered earlier today by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based war monitor, which said that pro-Syrian government forces were emptying main airports and military air bases.

WAR DRUMS: UK orders subs towards Syria for possible missile strikes
British Prime Minister Theresa May has ordered British submarines to move within missile range of Syria in readiness for strikes against the Syrian military that could begin as early as Thursday night, the Daily Telegraph newspaper said.  May has not reached a final decision on whether Britain would join any
strikes by the United States and France in response to a suspected chemical attack, but wants to be able to act swiftly, the newspaper said. It quoted government sources as saying Britain was “doing everything necessary” to be able to fire Tomahawk cruise missiles from submarines against military targets in Syria.

WAR DRUMS: Russia moves 11 navy ships out of Syrian port
Russia has moved at least 11 navy ships deployed in Syria out to sea in the event of a U.S. military strike, which appears to be imminent in the wake of an exchange of threats between President Trump and Russian officials.  Trump replied early Wednesday to a Russian threat to shoot down any U.S. missiles in Syria with a tweet: “Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and ‘smart!’”
The threatened military strike is a response to an alleged chemical attack last week on civilians blamed on the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The Israel-based commercial organization ImageSat International provided satellite images to Fox News showing 11 Russian naval craft in the port of Tartus have departed, leaving only a single submarine.

WAR DRUMS: Russia Prepares for Nuclear War With U.S., Instructing Citizens to Buy Water and Gas Masks
Russian state-owned television is urging the country’s residents to stock their bunkers with water and basic foodstuffs because Moscow could go to war with Washington.  Warning that the potential conflict between the two superpowers would be “catastrophic,” an anchor for Russia’s Vesti 24 showed off shelves of food, recommending that people buy salt, oatmeal and other products that can last a long time on the shelves. Powdered milk lasts five years while sugar and rice can last up to eight years, the
newscaster explained before showing videos of pasta cooking in a bomb shelter.  The channel’s newscasters also displayed charts explaining how much water people need to store for drinking, washing their face and hands, and preparing food every day—and how that amount changes depending on the temperature of a person’s bomb shelter. The program also recommended that people stock up on gas masks and read guides on how to survive nuclear war.

WAR DRUMS: Israel warns “If Iran acts against Israel, we’ll topple Assad”
“If the Iranians act against Israel from Syrian territory, Syrian President Bashar Assad and his regime will be those that pay the price.”  That is the clear message from senior officials in the Israeli defense establishment and IDF after the top adviser to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei called a strike on the Syrian T-4 air base “Israel’s crime” and said the alleged act would “not remain without response.” B
“Assad’s regime and Assad himself will disappear from the map and the world if the Iranians do try to harm Israel or its interests from Syrian territory,” said senior officials in the defense establishment. “Our recommendation to Iran is that it does not try to act, because Israel is determined to continue on this issue to the very end,” the officials said. Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said Tuesday that Israel will take all necessary steps to prevent Iran from establishing a permanent military base in Syria.

WAR DRUMS: US-led coalition warplanes ‘seen flying over Iraqi border’ as nerve gas counter attack looms
A heavy flight of US-led coalition warplanes have reportedly been seen flying over the Iraqi border as a nerve gas counter attack looms.  Civilian planes were said to have been ordered to clear the airspace over Syria by the US military for at least 48 hours as flight radar shows aircraft diverting.   European air traffic controllers issued a “rapid alert” for airlines in the Eastern Mediterranean over the possibility of air strikes into Syria within the next 72 hours.
The European Aviation Security Agency’s (EASA) warning of possible launches of air-to-ground strikes or cruise missiles comes as the US, Britain, France and allies weigh up retaliatory measures to a suspected chemical weapon attack in Syria.  Nafiseh Kohnavard, a reporter for the BBC, tweeted: “Airlines that are still using Syria’s airspace have received a request to change their corridors for the next 48 hours.

WAR DRUMS: U.S. Navy Destroyer Armed With Tomahawks Arrives Off Syrian Coast, “Harassed” By Russian Warplanes
As the situation in Syria continues to escalate, guided missile destroyer USS Donald Cook has weighed anchor off Syrian territorial waters, and is reportedly being “harassed” by low-flying Russian warplanes, which have buzzed the “Arleigh Burke” class warship at least four times according to CNN Turk.   It is claimed that the US Donald Cook-named destroyer left Cyprus ‘s Larnaca port and landed near Syrian territorial waters. It was claimed that the missile destroyer named “Arleigh Burke” class Donald Cook
(DDG-75) reached Tallus 100 kilometers and had 60 Tomahawk fuses on board. -CNN Turk (translated) . A Navy source confirmed the deployment with the Washington Examiner, who said that the guided-missile-destroyer had just completed a port call in Cyprus, while the Pentagon reportedly draws up plans for how to deal with the situation. U.S. military planners have drawn up more than one option for possible military action against Syria, including a strike similar to last year’s attack in which 59 sea-launched cruise missiles inflicted heavy damage on a Syrian Air Force airfield in Homs.

WAR DRUMS: Top Iranian official warns that Israel attack will be met with response
The top adviser to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei on Tuesday described a strike on a military air base in Syria as “Israel’s crime” and said it would “not remain without response,” the Lebanese al-Mayadeen channel reported.  Ali Akbar Velayati was speaking on arrival in the Syrian capital Damascus, reported al-Mayadeen, which is well-connected in government-held parts of Syria.
Seven Iranian military personnel were killed in the strike on the Tiyas, or T-4, air base near Homs, the Iranian Tasnim news agency reported on Tuesday. Syria, Iran and Russia have accused Israel of being behind the attack – something Israel has neither confirmed nor denied. However, Israel has carried out numerous strikes in Syria, with some intended to stop Iran and allies including the Lebanese group Hezbollah from gaining strength near its borders.

British and French forces could launch an imminent missile strike on Syria within a matter of hours, aviation monitors have revealed.   A coalition force could fire “air-to-ground or cruise missiles” in the wake of a horrifying chemical attack on innocent civilians in Syria last week. Aviation experts AirLive have reported this evening a “rapid alert notification” warning aircraft in the eastern Mediterranean to
be wary of a sudden missile strike. AirLive said the alert was issued by Eurocontrol this evening for a “possible launch … within the next 72 hours”. AirLive said: “According to reports, British forces are mobilizing at their bases in Cyprus and Rafale fighter jets could takeoff from St Dizier airbase in France for possible strikes against Syria.”

WAR DRUMS: Russia warns of ‘gravest consequences’ if US takes military action over Syrian chemical attack
Russia has threatened the “gravest” of consequences to any foreign power considering military action against Syria over “fabricated” reports of a chemical attack.  Moscow warned against taking action as US President Donald Trump said there would be a “big price to pay” for the atrocity. Russia, whose military backing of President Bashar al-Assad turned the course of the war in his favor, denied that Syrian government forces deployed chemical weapons in the Syrian city of Douma.
A joint statement by the medical relief organization Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS) and the civil defense service, which operates in rebel-held areas, said 49 people had died in the attack late on Saturday.  Others put the toll even higher. But Syrian state media denied government forces had launched any chemical attack as soon as the reports began circulating.

WAR DRUMS: Trump warns of ‘major decisions’ in coming hours
President Trump on Monday called the suspected chemical attack in Syria over the weekend “atrocious” and said the United States will make “major decisions” about its response over the next 24 to 48 hours.  “It was an atrocious attack. It was horrible,” the president said during a Cabinet meeting at the White House.  Added Trump, “We are studying that situation extremely closely. We are meeting with our

military and everybody else and we’ll be making some major decisions over the next 24 to 48 hours.” Saturday’s suspected poison gas attack took place in a rebel-held town near Damascus amid a resumed offensive by Syrian government forces after the collapse of a truce. Syrian activists, rescuers and medics said the attack in Douma killed at least 40 people, with families found suffocated in their houses and shelters.

The United States “will respond” to a deadly chemical weapons attack in Syria regardless of whether the United Nations Security Council acts or not, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Monday.  “We have reached the moment when the world must see justice done,” Haley told the council.

“History will record this as the moment when the Security Council either discharged its duty or demonstrated its utter and complete failure to protect the people of Syria,” she said. “Either way, the United States will respond.”

Trump threatens "Animal Assad," Putin over alleged chemical attack in Syria
Share  Tweet  Reddit  Flipboard  Email
Last Updated Apr 8, 2018 11:51 PM EDT
WASHINGTON -- President Trump responded Sunday to reports of a suspected chemical attack in the Syrian city of Douma, blaming Syrian President Bashar Assad and his international allies for the apparent attack that left dozens dead and hundreds injured. In some of his most critical comments directed at Russian President Vladimir Putin to date, Mr. Trump threatened that there's a "big price ... to pay" for those backing the Assad regime.

Syrian opposition activists and rescuers said Sunday that a poison gas attack on the rebel-held town of Douma near the capital of Damascus killed at least 40 people. The alleged attack has been denied by the Syrian and Russian governments. Russia is Syria's closest ally and has a major military presence in the country.

Reports of the latest attack, which appeared to target civilians and young children, could not be independently verified.

U.S. "not conducting air strikes," Pentagon says, after apparent chemical attack by Syrian regime
Mr. Trump called out Putin along with the leadership in Iran for backing Assad, who he referred to as "Animal Assad." Mr. Trump ordered missile strikes on a Syrian airbase in response to another chemical attack in 2017.

First responders said they found families suffocated in their homes and shelters, with foam on their mouths. The opposition-linked Syrian Civil Defense were able to document 42 fatalities but were impeded from searching further by strong odors that gave their rescuers difficulties breathing, said Siraj Mahmoud, a spokesman for the group, which is known as the White Helmets. 

"Open area immediately for medical help and verification. Another humanitarian disaster for no reason whatsoever. SICK!" the president urged.

Mr. Trump later blamed his predecessor President Barack Obama for not taking action against the Assad regime earlier in the civil war.

It's unclear what the administration's next steps are with regard to responding to the attack. In response to a similar chemical attack in April of last year, Mr. Trump ordered a missile strike on a Syrian military target in Shayrat, about 50 miles due south of the village that was hit in a gas attack.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Sunday on CBS News' "Face the Nation" that he and the administration "will be reviewing with the president all different alternatives" for a response.

Regarding possible U.S. military action, White House homeland security adviser Tom Bossert said ABC's "This Week" on Sunday that the U.S. "wouldn't take anything off the table."

"The State Department put out a statement last night and the president's senior national security cabinet has been talking with him and each other all throughout the evening and this morning," Bossert added.

Sen. Lindsey Graham told ABC that this was a "defining moment" for the president.
"He has challenged Assad in the past not to use chemical weapons," said Graham. "If it becomes a tweet without meaning, then he's hurt himself in North Korea. I he doesn't follow through and live up to that tweet, he's going to look weak in the eyes of and Russia and Iran."
Graham urged Mr. Trump to "show a resolve that Obama never did to get this right."

China imposes 25% tariffs on more than 128 US imports…
China says it’s rolling out new tariffs on U.S. meat, fruit and other products as retaliation against taxes approved by President Trump on imported steel and aluminum. The Chinese finance ministry says in a statement that the new tariffs begin Monday. The announcement follows through on warnings Chinese officials have made for several weeks in an escalating trade dispute with the United States.
China’s Customs Tariff Commission is increasing the tariff rate on eight imported U.S. products, including pork, by 25 percent. It’s also imposing a new 15 percent tariff on 120 imported U.S. commodities, including fruits.The tariffs mirror Mr. Trump’s 25 percent charge on imported steel and 15 percent hike on aluminum. Mr. Trump’s tariffs are partly a response to complaints that Beijing steals or pressures foreign companies to hand over technology.

RUMORS OF WAR: Danger could be on the horizon after US withdrawal from Syria
The United States is considering reducing or ending its presence in Syria, according to President Donald Trump. In Ohio last week Trump said, “We’ll be coming out of Syria, like very soon.” according to CNN, he told advisers in February that America must achieve victory over Islamic State and then come home. The Wall Street Journal also reported that the White House put on hold $200 million
that was supposed to be directed toward rebuilding civilian infrastructure and stabilization in eastern Syria. The abrupt about-face in US policy comes after the administration spent 2017 indicating it was preparing for the long haul in Syria. It said it wanted President Bashar Assad gone and that the US would continue to work with its partners among the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) that had been the main driving force behind defeating ISIS.

North Korea preparing for seventh nuclear test days after Kim visit in China

North Korea preparing for seventh nuclear test days after Kim visit in China
Foreign Minister Taro Kono on Saturday suggested there are signs North Korea is preparing to hold another nuclear test even as tensions on the Korean Peninsula ease ahead of a rare summit between the two Koreas. The North appears to be “working hard to get ready for the next nuclear test,” Kono said in a lecture in Kochi, referring to the removal of soil from a tunnel at a site where past tests were conducted. His remarks might be based on satellite imagery provided by the United States.

As for the possibility of summit talks taking place between Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Kono expressed caution about reacting hastily to Pyongyang’s charm offensive. “There’s absolutely no need to rush things,” the top diplomat said, adding that North Korea may take advantage of countries accepting invitations to send their leaders to Pyongyang for talks.

Pyongyang getting ready for seventh nuclear test despite thaw: Japan’s Taro Kono
KYODO

MAR 31, 2018
Foreign Minister Taro Kono on Saturday suggested there are signs North Korea is preparing to hold another nuclear test even as tensions on the Korean Peninsula ease ahead of a rare summit between the two Koreas.

The North appears to be “working hard to get ready for the next nuclear test,” Kono said in a lecture in Kochi, referring to the removal of soil from a tunnel at a site where past tests were conducted.

His remarks might be based on satellite imagery provided by the United States.

As for the possibility of summit talks taking place between Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Kono expressed caution about reacting hastily to Pyongyang’s charm offensive.

“There’s absolutely no need to rush things,” the top diplomat said, adding that North Korea may take advantage of countries accepting invitations to send their leaders to Pyongyang for talks.

There are signs of a thaw on the divided peninsula, with global attention fixed on two closely related events — an inter-Korean leaders’ summit scheduled for April 27, and an unprecedented U.S.-North Korea summit that is expected to be held by the end of May.

North Korea’s most recent nuclear test, its sixth and most powerful, was conducted in September 2017.

RUMORS OF WAR: Hamas to Swarm Israel’s Border, Sparking Fear of New ‘Passover War’

RUMORS OF WAR: Hamas to Swarm Israel’s Border, Sparking Fear of New ‘Passover War’
The Palestinian terrorist group Hamas is planning a mass demonstration along Israel’s border on Friday, prompting fears of a new war with the Jewish state ahead of the Passover holiday, according to regional experts and U.S. officials who say they are closely monitoring the situation.  On the heels of a recent military exercise that observers described as “unprecedented,” Hamas leaders have called for some 100,000 Gaza Strip resident to engage in six weeks of mass demonstrations along the Israeli
border as Jewish families gear up for the Passover holiday, which begins Friday evening. Regional experts closely tracking the situation say the demonstrations are meant as cover for a mass military campaign to swarm Israel’s border and stoke violence against the Jewish state. The situation is being closely monitored by Trump administration officials, who outlined concerns that Hamas could use civilian protesters as human shields as cover for attacks on Israeli forces.

RUMORS OF WAR: China sends navy to South Sea; Vows ‘bloody battle’ for world domination…

RUMORS OF WAR: China sends navy to South Sea; Vows ‘bloody battle’ for world domination…
Dozens of Chinese ships are exercising this week with an aircraft carrier in a show of force off Hainan Island in the South China Sea.  Pictures, provided by Planet Labs Inc, show a Chinese carrier group has entered the trade route as part of combat drills.  The Chinese navy claims the movements are part of routine annual exercises, according to Reuters.
The Liaoning carrier group last week traversed the Taiwan Strait, according to the Taiwanese defense ministry. The photos, taken yesterday, show what appear to be at least 40 ships and submarines flanking the carrier Liaoning in what some analysts described as an unusually large display of China’s expanding fleet. They have emerged less than a week after Chinese President Xi Jinping said his country is prepared to fight bloody battles to retain its right as a superpower.

Russia and China eclipse US in hypersonic missiles, Prompting fears

Russia and China eclipse US in hypersonic missiles, Prompting fears
Russia and China are outpacing the United States in the development of super-fast missile technology, Pentagon officials and key lawmakers are warning.  Russia says it successfully tested a so-called hypersonic missile this month, while China tested a similar system last year expected to enter service soon.  “Right now, we’re helpless,” Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), a senior member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said in advocating for more investment in hypersonics, along with missile defense.
Hypersonics are generally defined as missiles that can fly more than five times the speed of sound. Gen. John Hyten, commander of U.S. Strategic Command, last week described a hypersonic as a missile that starts out “like a ballistic missile, but then it depresses the trajectory and then flies more like a cruise missile or an airplane. So it goes up into the low reaches of space, and then turns immediately back down and then levels out and flies at a very high level of speed.”

RED DAWN RISING? Kim Jong Un Makes a Surprise Visit to China

RED DAWN RISING? Kim Jong Un Makes a Surprise Visit to China
Kim Jong Un made a surprise visit to Beijing on his first known trip outside North Korea since taking power in 2011, three people with knowledge of the visit said.  Further details of his trip, including how long Kim would stay and who he would meet, were not immediately available. The people asked not to be identified because of the sensitivity of the information. Speculation about a possible visit by a high-ranking North Korean official circulated around the Chinese capital Monday, after Japan’s Kyodo News
reported that a special train may have carried Kim through the northeastern border city of Dandong. Nippon TV showed footage of a train arriving Monday in Beijing that looked similar to one used by Kim’s father, Kim Jong Il, to visit the country shortly before his death in 2011. The train believed to be carrying the North Korean delegation was observed Tuesday leaving Beijing, Reuters reported, citing a witness.
