In response to the US Missile Strike against Syria last night, Russia has summoned the US Military attache in Moscow to serve official notice they have Suspended all communication with the Pentagon concerning Syria.
This is dangerous. Now, the US has no way to tell Russia where US aircraft or troops are operating prior to a Russian airstrike, and Russia will not be asking or telling the US where they are operating prior to a US air strike. Forces from each side may now (accidentally?) get hit and killed by each side! If Russia hits US forces or vice versa,there will be war.
Russia's "INTERFAX News Agency" reported the developments in this way:
U.S. MILITARY ATTACHE IN MOSCOW SUMMONED TO RUSSIAN DEFENSE MINISTRY, SERVED A NOTE ON SUSPENSION OF MEMORANDUM ON PREVENTION OF INCIDENTS IN SYRIA FROM 00:00 A.M. ON APRIL 8
|RUSSIAN DEFENSE MINISTRY DOES NOT PRESERVE CHANNELS OF COMMUNICATION WITH PENTAGON ON AVIATION FLIGHTS IN SYRIA
||RUSSIAN DEFENSE MINISTRY OFFICIALLY NOTIFIES PENTAGON OF HAVING DISCONTINUED COMMUNICATION HOTLINE UNDER MEMORANDUM ON SYRIA
While the US staunchly claims the Syrian government used Chemical weapons against civilians on Tuesday, the Syrians stridently DENY that accusation. Syria admits it attacked "a rebel ammunition dump" near the village of Idlib, but says the Sarin Nerve Agent must have been in that ammunition dump and released when the ammo dump was hit.
The US claims that any Sarin Nerve Agent "would have been destroyed by the blast" and would not have been able to release in a manner that killed so many civilians.
The US claim, however, comes more than a YEAR after Syria was CERTIFIED as having complied with the destruction of all its Weapons of Mass Destruction. Even former Obama Administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice publicly stated that Syria no longer has such weapons.
Thus, since the US attacked Syria over the chemical weapons, but the weapons belonged to the rebels - who are U.S. backed - then the US missile strike would be completely unjust in the eyes of Syria and it's Russian backers.
Was President Trump tricked into attacking? Was he suckered by the very same "deep state" that has been waging battles against Syria? Some believe so. And given the fact that war-mongering maniacs like Senator John McCain and Lindsay Graham are now singing Trump's praises, one really must question if Trump was snookered by the neo-cons?
Moreover, If voting for Trump won't end foolish wars, Americans who voted for Trump know once and for all voting doesn't matter. It won't be pretty.
