Russia has intelligence from “trusted sources” that chemical weapons provocations are currently being prepared in more regions in Syria, including Damascus, Russian President Vladimir Putin said after talks with Italian counterpart Sergio Mattarella Tuesday.

“We have information from various sources that such provocations — and I cannot call them anything else — are being prepared in other regions of Syria, including in the southern suburbs of Damascus, where they intend to plant some substance and blame the official Syrian authorities for its use,” Putin told a briefing.

Russian President Putin announced that Russia will officially turn to the UN in the Hague for an investigation of the chemical weapons’ use in Idlib.

“All incidents reminiscent of the ‘chemical attacks’ that took place in Idlib must be thoroughly investigated,” Putin said.

Putin pointed out that the latest US missile strikes in Syria bring to mind the United States’ UN Security Council address in 2003 that led to the invasion of Iraq.

“We discussed the situation with President [ of Italy Sergio Mattarella] and I told him that these events strongly resemble the events of 2003,” Putin said at a briefing, outlining the prelude to the US intervention in Iraq.

On Thursday night, the United States launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the military airfield in Ash Sha’irat. US President Donald Trump said that the attack was a response to the alleged chemical weapon use in Syria’s Idlib province on Tuesday, which resulted in the death of over 80 people.

Following Putin’s presser, Russian General Staff released a statement announcing that it has information of militants bringing poisonous substances to areas of Khan Shaykhun, West of Aleppo and Eastern Guta in Syria.

Chief of the Russian General Staff Main Operational Directorate Col. Gen. Sergei Rudskoy said that the militants are trying to provoke new accusations targeted at Syrian government for alleged use of chemical weapons. The militants aim to incite the US to conduct new strikes, Rudskoy warned, adding that such measures are impermissible.

    Melting Butter and Trump

    Trump is melting like butter in the hands of the Washington Establishment and his distractors. They prepared the ground from the very beginning of this Presidency with their incessant tirades against Russia.

    Trump did not have a clear foreign or military policy of his own and into the vacuum flowed in the prodigies of the Washington Establishment and EU warmongers, backed by the defeated Democrats and armchair war experts and false American Heroes like John McCain and Lindsey Graham. He was even foolish for allowing the Secretary of State – Rex Tillerson, Ambassdor to the UN – Nikki Haley ( A very bad choice for America -with bad genes) and Defence Secretary – General Mattis to follow their own agendas. They all have now finally coaxed a very vulnerable, naive and egotistic Trump to fall in line with their own agendas.

    It has happened to the Boy Scout President George W Bush, Prof Obama and now to this Former Real Estate Magnate Trump. The world had such high hopes on Trump that he will move away from the warmongers and get down to business of regaining the faltering US economy, building of its faltering infrastructure and matters more close to US borders. Now he is back to protecting other’s borders in Europe and Middle East and commiting war crimes!

    He will fail just like Bill Clinton, ,George W Bush and Obama. He has just got his first blood in his hands. He has soured the most important relationship he could have made in Europe -Putin in Russia, to make America Great Again. Let us hope that he will not make another Vietnam in Syria and completely misdirect the war against international terrorism and Islamic Terrorists.

    Unless he mend his ways, end his ego maximus journey, he will end up leading the US to where Breshnev led Russia to – financial and economic bankruptcy! Getting his immediate family up close and in the White House will spell disaster to him! What a shame!!
