Russia, 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.”
- While media reports abounded about Moscow’s non-reprisal for the US-led attack, Moscow was quietly getting ready to confront the US and its allies. Heavy Russian strategic Tu-95 and Tu-22M bombers were deployed Thursday to air bases in Iran, thereby cutting their flying time to Syria and Iraq by at least four hours; and Russian freighters were transiting the Bosporus Straits Friday and Saturday in full sight of intelligence surveillance, laden with new military equipment for the Syrian army.
- US care in limiting its operation essentially to three sites, where the Bashar Assad‘s army was clandestinely making and stockpiling chemical weapons, served Moscow’s purpose
- Assad still retains substantial quantities of poison weapons even after these sites were struck by more than 100 missiles. He is still capable of using them again and will not be deterred from doing so if he thinks his regime is in danger.
- The US-led operation was beset by controversy between President Donald Trump and his defense secretary, James Mattis. Had it been up to Mattis, it would not have been launched. The delay derived from the arguments against the strike put forward by the Defense Secretary and US army chiefs led by Gen. Joseph Danford, Chairman of the Joint chiefs of Staff. They predicted that Russia and Iran would not take the missile assault lying down and a single single-dimensional strike would be the catalyst for a full-scale US war with Russia on Syrian soil. Mattis tried to put the brakes on the operation on Saturday morning by calling it “a one-time shot.” But then, President Trump stated in a TV speech: “We are prepared to sustain this response until the Syrian regime stops its use of prohibited chemical agents.”
- Trump is perfectly capable of sacking Mattis with the same lack of ceremony with which he let Secretary of State Rex Tillerson go last month. But this won’t resolve his differences with the generals regarding the scope of US military action in Syria. He will count on close support from Tillerson’s successor at State, Mike Pompeo, and his new national security adviser John Bolton, for widening the US military action in Syria into further strikes against the Assad regime.
- Whereas the Trump administration took care to keep the multilateral attack in Syria well-defined to chemical targets, the Russians never promised to limit their response. They may well go for a major military success in Syria so as to obliterate the impact of the US-led assault. The Russian information machine was already at work before noon on Saturday, when Col. Gen. Sergei Rudskoi of the Russian military’s General Staff maintained that Syria’s Russian-made air defense systems downed 71 out of 103 missiles launched by the US and allies in Syria, with the help of monitoring by “Russian air defense assets” – but without the direct engagement of any Russian missiles. This was a message to Washington that a fresh wave of strikes in Syria would encounter direct Russian engagement. The Russian general also claimed that “only minor damage” was caused by the first wave.
- Russian Defense officials also threatened that Russia would resume discussions with Syria and other countries over the sale of modern S-300 air defense systems to protect against future US strikes.

This is all part of a larger picture. Namely, the problem with Iran and North Korea.
The fact that there were chemical plants to bomb is at least a partial reason for the limited bombing attack.
Other reasons? Well, don’t forget that when these sort of things are done there is much in the way of intelligence that can be gathered for example radar signatures of SS-300 and SS-400 that Russia has installed and that Iran is relying on to protect them. Other data, lots of it is also collected. Don’t forget that the US is going to drop the Iran deal and do their best to crush the Iranian regime in the near future. This is all part of that. The Iranians are the MAIN problem in the Middle East and are responsible for much of the chaos in many current volatile situations.
This will play out in a better fashion than can be imagined and will serve very good purposes in upcoming battles with Iran and their proxies Hezbollah and Hamas.
they didn’t use s400 or s300 missiles, probably only target acquisition and fire control mechanism. Also the Rus have plenty of electronic countermeasures in place.
Duwali airfield 4 missiles fired all intercepted
Dumair airfield 12 missiles, all intercepted
Blay airfield, 12 missiles, all intercepted
Shayrat airfield, 12 missiles, all intercepted
unused Mezze airfield, 9 missiles, 5 intercepted
Homs airfield, 16 missiles, 13 intercepted
30 missiles fired at region Barzeh and Jaramanie 7 intercepted
this is going to be fun
hey ivan… wanna buy a bridge?
With all those “intercepted missiles,” I guess that you, Evil, will be happy that Syria-Russia-Iran can live another day to gas children and rape women.
Gazing anyone anywhere is a specialty for Jews . They were gazed by their American supporters when they funded Nazi operations in concentration camps. So any reaction to gazing to the extend of 6 million Jews was and were American specialty , like the Yellow cake, Israelis produce themselves , Agent Orange , Mustard gaz , and even Chlorine discharge that was uise by Nazis on American patent . And now the game indirectly will involve Israel , that are in line to be put at the same position , except in the country , nobody really recognizes to be theirs , and this includes Israelis themselves.
Sad very Sad
solomeow, Go back to your goat. It misses you.
Only total idiot that support terrorists like you can say something stupid like they gas children
you mistaken, you should talk to umerikan allies, those who rape women, kill christians and still american goverment sells 90 billion in weapons to them, and they murdered thousands of women and children in yemen (saudis mf wahabi), those are the isis foot soldiers americans use in syria, please take a note, you americans are the ones to blame for all of this… and about gas wmd, americans and uk are the only nations to have those weapons, russia and sryia have been inspected by independent agencies, and have disposal their weapons, but americans said they dont have money to disposal their weapons, but they have 800 billion dollars to launch 100 missiles ILLEGALY against a sovereign nation. this is you american goons. and about those 100 missiles, NICE, SMART AND NEW MISSILES… syria used old crap ussr systems outdated from 70´s to hit them… God forbiden that usa think about to get real war with russia, they will be hit so hard that they wont find their way home.
The low-life moron Ivan’s verbal diarrhea…
100 Cruise Missiles don’t cost 800 BILLION dollars, maybe 800 million…
redirection, nothing is as it seems. Saudi/iran/Pakistan/north korea/turkey what do they have in common. why hasn’t iran attacked Israel, the prostate guy is headed to hell any way, he doesn’t want to go alone. remember every one believes what they have been told there whole live. Iran killed over one million of there citizens when shah was deposed. iran has no problem in using children and women has shields. yet the people say its not true. Iran doesn’t want to feed its people. Ottoman and Persia. stroke there egos, direct confrontation(only turkey) Persia has no balls. proxies! iran talks and its lackies do as they are told. Pakistan will provide nukes, iran can hide behind there terrorist and claim what you talking about. There will be no third temple, and Iran will never have a Empire ever again. When his balls fall off and another puppet will be put in place, perhaps something will change when the Persian epiphany will be realized.Obadiah
RatSputum, Where are pictures of the 71 “intercepted” missiles with identifying markings???? There should be lots of high tech debris.
Put up or shut up SLAVe.
Why is Russia siding with Fascist Iranians as Russia sided with Fascist Germans from 1939-1941???
If you do research you can see many missiles debris and parts I have seen british one storm shadow for example . Your lack of history knowledge is beyond comprehension .
Go and collect them yourself from Syria you imbecile. 103 missiles for three building and you thought all hit the three buildings. Can you think at all ? 71 intercepted Ok.
Jizzyaman, Present a link to the pictures of the debris from 50+ missiles shot down by Syria. LOL!
Comrade Jizzya, you have to do more than claim something. You have to present supporting evidence.
Because the US always need a “Bogeyman” and as result of a lack of other candidates, its Putin and Russia. He doesn’t really oppose the west though. An examination of the history of Russia under Putin will confirm that much. As far as Israel is concerned, there is no problem there either. Jews in Russia under Putin have never had it any better. Travel to Israel and you will hear more Russian then you will Hebrew.
As far as Syria is concerned, the Russian alliance has to be the oddest one in all of history. It is one where Russia permits any nation that wants to bomb Syria at will to do so. Refuses to provide modern air defense or aircraft, actively assists aggressors to select targets, cedes Syrian land to its enemies (Afrin to Turkey) and provides the Israelis with intelligence as to the location and positions of Iranian and Hezbollah troops. With friends likes these who needs enemies. Iran at least understands that Russia is playing Syria false. Syria does too, but being on its knees with its beggar bowl it can do it little but take any aid it can no matter how duplicitous the sources.
As I write this note, it seems that Israel has once again hit a Homs airfield. I guess Putin’s phone call to Bibi giving him a stern warning to cease and desist was well heeded don’t you think?
Final note. The only reason why Russia is “considering” providing Syria with the S300 at all, is because Iran can supply it. There home version is actually superior to the old Russian version. Russia doesn’t want to be placed in the embarrassing position of trying to somehow stop its delivery.
WAR IS ANYTHING BUT FUN RUSSIAN ARAB PROPAGENDA ALL MISSILES HIT ITS TARGET
All the missiles reached their Targets, that is why they were destroyed.
“probably only target acquisition”
That was his point
But look you were confused those were the lights for the Orthodox New Year is the best you can do ah ah
the main problem in middle east is israel , saudi arabia and US
…In the WORLD!
…in your addled brain (assuming that we can call that messed up collection of damaged cells in your head a “brain”)
People who think like you are the problem,you don’t know how to think straight.
speak for yourself
That is the one-line most stupid statement of the day.
Are you dumb? The main problem is israel? Wtf is wrong with you!? They dont gas their own people you dumb ass. The jews are very peacefull unless they are threatened. Then who ever fucks with israel will feel the full wrath of their army and the US military. Trump is incharge now. And after obama screwing our beat ally israel for 8 years trump has their bacl 100% no matter what. Id love to see someone try and fuck with israel
Let me see if they bar this message. The problem is those who control Ysral (Israel) are fake jews. They are of the Synagogue of Satan and worship money. The real jews are black. Biblical prophesy speaks of our heritage being stolen by those who hate us. The fake jews hate us as they orchestrated the transatlantic slave trade of The Kingdom of Judah. Obviously they seek more money and resources so they war. But their greed will consume them as they will bite off more than they can chew. It is Biblical prophesy. No one really wants war in that region, but they are being drawn into it. The Valley of Jehosphat. God must cleanse the land of the heathen fake jews.
Everyone expecting larger attack with larger results, but assad slept in his bed and next morning goes to his office, and now debka report if he want he has chimical weapons to do so again.
Well good luck everybody but assad regime will stay at power under russian wings
A lot of circling going on in the boxing ring between these heavyweights, but no serious punching. A few feints. Some jabs, but no powerful blows being struck. I doubt those U.S. missiles destroyed anything of significance in Syria. Big show, that’s all. And I doubt Russian and Iran will respond with anything more than some flybys and harassment type moves. They know what they’ll get if they go after U.S. forces directly – a beat down. Russia and Iran along with Syria haven’t been able to defeat the rebels in years of fighting. You think they’re going to tangle with the belt holder and Israel. Doubtful.
uh so called black panther. u.s. has been fighting rebels for years and have not defeated them either. so what say ye to that? don’t be a coon stop advocating for your oppressors. the government of the american people is not for the american people. they are for their masters, your enslavers, the great oppressors of the world who wage war purely for financial gain. stay out of this. white folk are fighting with white folk. in the end, whether its next year or a 100 God years, eventually they will destroy each other.
No, the americans are the MAIN problem in the Middle East. Ask yourself this, “what is the US doing in the Middle East anyway?”. Remember, G-d did not mention america or americans in the Bible. He could have, but, He didn’t and there is a reason for it- which G-d kept rather mysterious.
america was mentioned in the bible stupid, Sephardic Fake Jew. You just don’t know the bible bc it is not a book meant for you. you even answered how it was mentioned in your own rant. But you do not know bc you do not realize that you are not a real jew. you are jewish. a convert. you are not of the blood line of King David.
The main problem is the country that has unleashed war in every country in the middle east since the end of ww2, not iran who have not attacked anybody for 250 years. You think it will be a walk in the park to invade iran, you could not even defeat your former proxies in afghanistan who you funded but have not defeated in 16 years. It will be hell on earth for you in Iran, and remember that one day like all empires, the war will come to your doorstep, and the same treatment you have inflicted on millions will be returned to you a million times over.
no need to invade Iran. just to destroy its military infrastructure and let time do its bid.
“not iran who have not attacked anybody for 250 years” not Iran? are you stupid? they are the cause of all the troubles in the ME.
There seems to be a total news blackout in the US of anything related to American forces in Syria. Maybe due to Pentagon or CIA censorship. Only getting news from Debka on what’s happening there.
Interesting points..but where were the large plumes of chemical smoke one would expect after such a sophisticated attacK?: Recon was up to the minute for weeks especiall as the Russians anticipated the week before..from inside and above..and only hard equipment like jets missiles etc were seen moving to Russian bases..so I find this most curious..
Bring it. Americans don’t fear Russia or Iran.
Putin will cross a line and get his commie nation destroyed. The Ayatollah has been spoiling for a fight which he’s going to get.
America is the answer.
“Blessed are the merciful, for they shall have mercy shown them.”
You fuckin small dick jew, why are you speaking as if you are American? Fight your own wars, you prick!
Where is the Israeli might? Hello?! Someone there? Oh, they have fled already? Good! No more wars for these warmonger fanatics!
Man-up, jews! Deal with the shit YOU made
HEY HENRY FORD,YOU HAVE TO STOP LOOKING AT YOURSELF IN THE MIRROR,
YOU ARE SO UGLY IT MAKES YOU INSULT OTHERS,WHO HAVE DONE NOTHING TO BE
Do you have a weird variation of penis envy, Henry F$%k? You seem to be really obsessed with male genitalia in these posts!!!
Henry Ford is another anti-Semite crawling out from under the rocks. This one seems to have a fascination with Jewish penis size. Can you tell us why, Mr. Ford?
Why do you call someone an antisemite when someone may speak with criticism or offence to a Jew?
1. The word SEM derives from the word Shem.
2. Iran, Armenians are direct descendents of Shem.
3. The Hebrews are later descendents of Shem. – Eber.
4. Jews came after Judah. Jews where only mentioned near the end of the first temple of Solomon.
5. Jews are not promised or chosen people.
6. The house of Joseph retains to this day the birth right.
7. Israel loved Joseph more… Judah is like Easu.
8. Also… By speaking against Iran. Is about as close to a pure Semite as you can get. Direct descendants of Shem…
You see Jewry may have elements of Iranians, Iraqis, a bit of this and a bit of that. They are mongrols and not pedigree.
9. When the time of the temple reappears… One may consider that it is now impossible for the Jews to to have a 100% pure and accurate tribe allocation. This is due to the fact that Israel has been given the promises… Not the Jews. Therefore the whole point in Gog & Magog… Is to cut down the Jewish tree… To allow the return of the tribes of Israel. As well as those that wish to join the tribes… That does include Jews… But the majority of Israelis are not Jews.
hey putz, you’re on both sides of the scriptures you shit out last night. since you state.”You see Jewry may have elements of Iranians, Iraqis, a bit of this and a bit of that. They are mongrols and not pedigree.” I can’t help but notice how quick and willing you are to display your ignorance. Are you even aware when Iraq was formed? 1932 schmuck. those jews and their deeds…… they rewrote everyones history books! but, only a schmuck like you caught it.
@ the aptly named anonymouse coward,
Wow, can you please cough up an once of whatever you’re smoking, asap? And get a bib, your way too comfortably numb brain ( charitably speaking) is allowing you to drool all over yourself.
I love your answer. Mark Twain: “Never argue with an idiot, for he will drag you down to his level, and beat you with his experience.”
Well, Henry, as opposed to pyrotechnics show off, Israel’s surgical and quite accurate attacks with less than ten times the amount of missiles used here makes the world outrageously come up with “disproportional force.” You don’t need anything to go against the Jews, do you?
Still angry at all the Jewish men who’stiffed” your mother?
Hey, Henry, Israel was the first to respond.
mr. Ford -Your words indicate a small brain.
Isn’t it time to try resolve problems with logic, understanding and neutrality, instead of hate and war.
The problem with “people” in power is greed, more power and the worst of all “a belief system”.
Belief whether religious, ideological or political is a very dangerous thing, as it is very individualized, even on a specific collective basis – So we fight over “my” belief is right and “your” belief is wrong.
It is time, we as the people of this world uplift our levels of consciousness and become all INCLUSIVE with life, embracing all peoples and creatinf a world of love and harmony – is it really sch a difficult thing to do ?
We MUST start to change the way we think and interact with each other, which in turn will bring about a new level of UNNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS.
The time is now………….
@ Miel Rachman,
Sure, show ’em the way Siddhartha! Let’s all join hands and sing kumbaya while the rag heads are chopping heads.
Can you just imagine if we put the same amount of energy and resources that we put into war, into peace and the betterment of mankind ….What a wonderful world this would be.
@ Miel Rachman,
Uhuh, you sound like my pothead friend who wondered the same thing about a world in which every pine tree was a gigantic bud.
Herman’s Hermits or Louis Armstrong?
Every moment of peace and quiet enjoyed in every city was secured with violence.
You wrote, “america is the answer” to which I question, “where is america at in the Bible?” No, america is not the answer. america is the problem!
Only Israel is mentioned in the Bible.
Not America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Cuba, UK, France, Germany, China, Japan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Syria, Iraq, …
Forget the bible, my brother, it is written by man with a specific belief system.
Just send out love and goodwill to all, be happy within yourself and it will spread from person to person, slowly, but surely changing things for the better.
You live, then you die – what counts is what you do, think and action between these two.
Russia is not communist you ignorant yanky fukwit,
The question is: which country is the most bloodthirsty empire in history which has killed 22 million people since the end of WW2…
Your nastiness begets nastiness – as I said previously, try a bit of love – it’s far more powerful than hate.
Try it, it may even shock you positively.
You symply a stupid dog. Completely brainwashed.
Really stupid remark. you are not on the front lines to defend against Russian and Iranian armament. u sit at ur desk and challenge the Russian and Iranian armies. really brave desk top general. really stupid person
I would prefer some bunker busters be dropped on all Iranian nuclear installations. That would deliver a clear message. If America really wanted to win a war over Syria and stop Islamists who will do anything and everything: terrorism, killing, rape, cannibalism, ext., then America needs to go all in and I doubt America wants another trillion dollar war with 5000 casualties.
What will weaken Iran is to have her nuclear capabilities and “Revolutionary Guard” unit bases leveled. You can’t stop the “religion of peace” from cannibalizing humans because the religion is founded on war, terror and conquest and as long as they can get their hands on weapons – chemical, nuclear, stealth – which they get from all sources (America dumbly sells Islamic countries advanced weapons and systems) then they will use them on their children and on ours.
Debka is guessing
but, what about the ten thousand ballistic missiles that will fly in the direction of your terror state? just asking.
You mean YOUR terror states – you are the one who backs Terroristinians, Hezbollah-Iran, Russia, Assad poisoning children, eating hearts out of the bodies of Islamic terror victims, etc.
you must be one of the softie caregiving types. as, you’re always trying to ingratiate the losing side of every situation. go look at all you’re past posts. even you know you’re wrong. you probably take care of the neighbours cat when they go away huh? yea, you’re that easy
What is dumb Pootins Russia doing in the Middle East? Pootin needs to take his toys back to Moscow and ride his woolly mammoth pony through the park.
Then why are you allied with vermin like is-ra-el and the saud fake monarchy?
You have vulnerable bases all over the middle east, if you are dumb enough to attack iran they will also be “levelled”
Typical christian fundamentalist thinking which promotes murder while criticising other religions, go fk your sister in whatever cabin/swamp you emerged from…
As much as I think the Russians can make things interesting, I get the feeling that Putin has over-reached a bit here. If this becomes a full-blown war in Syria – or perhaps one of attrition. The advantage might be on the US’s side as they can replace losses easier. What happens when Putin runs out of mercenaries and has to commit Russian troops? Naturally, Israel is taking all this in too as they will be getting hit at some stage fairly soon I feel, which will ignite everything. Although iran is the main problem, they are only able to maintain their position propped up by Russia. If iran or any of them act against Israel with russian help. That will signify the end of russian assets in the area. Israel will then treat russian sites as they do iranian, and by one means or another, destroy them all. Once that infrastructure is gone, so is iran.
Very solid point
how much do you get paid to respond to anything remotely critical of imperial us aggression?
Keep playing these fake wargames in your head, because thats where they belong, in a fantasy relm,
What was the point of this pos attack. Srsly..i was expecting more. I wanted them to bomb all of the saa,iranian,hezzies bases . down the syrian infrastructure with the syrian presidential palace.
Whats the fuckin point of shooting 100 missiles if theyve been telling everyone about the date and letting everyone runaway.
Srsly tha usa foreign policy fuckin suck. Bunch of cucks…the only president i respect is bush. Dude had balls fucked. up iraq regime and left it to ruins.
Day after day im realizing that trump is a nazi who doesnt care for anyone.
Tough guy with all the curse words, where is your america in the Bible? With over 1 QUADRILLION dollars in debt, it is getting tougher to life in america day per day. This was is about the petro dollar and a shift in global economic power from the west to the east. But, over 99% of americans don’t know how money and economy works. I sense you don’t as well.
You also created ISIS you fool, over WMD which never existed. Bush had no soul, let alone brains, and the blood of a million iraqis on his hands. You can’t and wont attack Syria because it will result in the end of civilization, which i imagine is paradise for a prepper infowars prick like you, who attacks trump from the right and wants more destruction when you’ve gained NOTHING from you trillion dollar wars in the mid east.
DEBKA, have an agenda much? You used to be beautiful, now, you are just another propaganda ministry of disinformation.
Read the bible.The word of God tells you.From start to finish. What will happen.In the middle East .And to the end of the World. GOD has everything under control. HE SAID FEAR NOT,FOR I AM WITH THEE.He will look after his people .Time is running out,Seek the LORD TODAY. TOMORROW YOU MAY NOT HAVE.THE CHURCH AGE IS COMING TO A END.LOOK UP FOR THE TIME IS SHORT.
What’s wrong with the afterlife?
Why would you have such an insulting pseudonym, that depicts hate.
Do you think it adds to the benefit of mankind, or just creates more hatred.
Just asking – try understanding and send out something positive, that is if you want to change things for the better.
I just cannot understand such forms of hatred that resolves NOTHING.
Peace, brother – plz chill out.
@ Miel Rachman,
Please allow me to remind you: the rule is puff, puff – and then PASS for goodness sakes! Stop being such a hog!!! :-)))
BEWARE OF WORDS, THEY HAVE A NASTY WAY OF COMING BACK AT YOU – JUST A LAW OF THOUGHT ENERGY.
laugh at me, I stopped laughing a long time ago, this is now at critical levels – but hey, I am just one of those many nutters.
Remember me when the time is at hand.
Peace to you, if you can find it……………….
While I agree that prophecy will take place in Damascus, I have to say that this particular US slaughtering spree on unarmed civilians was certainly not what Isaiah 17 talks about. In that passage it tells how Damascus will become rubble so that nothing stands, nothing remains. That is far from what had happened here. This was just another illegal act of aggression on unarmed civilians performed by the US government and military.
Russia and Iran are about to invade Israel. Their armies will be decimated.
what about hizballah? the jewish supermen should attack deep into Syria with their highly experienced and motivated shiksas in defense of their loyal Proxies. lol. It will surely be a rout.
They are not “shiksas,” they are Sabras and they are tough, smart and will kick your stupid old drooping ass back to the Soviet Union.
No Psalms 83 will happen after EMP event in America and the Almighty will kill 85% of the enemy.
It seems that this is a lot of theater with very little military impact or substance. The Syria-Russia-Iran Axis of Evil were warned to get away from the select targets. You can’t really harm a Syria that the Syrians and Iranians and Russians and Turks and ISIS have already made into a pile of shit. This might be a first stage to be followed by a pause to see how the Axis of Evil react. The Pentagon have inducted that it is a one-off with no follow-ups – nothing more than a training mission. As I said, if they wanted to be effective and not just engage in staged window dressing, they should have targeted Iran’s nuclear facilities instead.
After listening to the Pentagon briefing, I conclude that the Russians are colluding or in agreement with the Americans and were told of every target and when, how and what will be done.
The Russians only responded with their usual rhetoric-for-show but it is my opinion that the Hezbollah and Iranians should be very concerned about the reliability of their Russian ally. If I were in the Islamic-Shite Mullocracy, I would be working on plans to go to war with Russia in Syria to rid the Ummah of the Russian Bear. I would recommend that Russia fight back hard against Iran.
Agreed, and same for Putin. This is an uneasy alliance with a lot of baggage and history going against it. From the photo ops I detect Putin is actually embarrassed to be in cahoots with this confederacy of Dark Ages dunces. He is stuck in a more modern age, the Cold War era. Russia is a 2nd rate player with failing economy and very few options.
Smart asses like you brought Israel into this mess, and probably will get us all killed. This could be the begining of the end. Doomsday is upon us!
From where I sit in Canada, Israel looks like a shining example of strength, civility, control, peace and success in a sea of misery, hate, antisemitism, bloody jihad, endless conquest, genocide, polygamy, misogyny, totalitarianism, worship of death and failure.
Where would you rather live, Israel or Syria, Gaza, Iraq, Iran, Yemen, Libya, Somalia, Pakistan, etc? I rest my case.
You’re failing to see what the Zionist hand is doing to keep the region tied down and oppressing a great deal of Muslims. That they have corrupt leaders is one thing, but to be throwing fuel continuously on the fire by smooching off Anglo-American governments and controlling them towards this imperial aim and thinking that killing goyim is fully justified because “god is with Israel” and the biblical self-fulfilling prophecies must come true, is quite reprehensible. Almost 100% of the Neocons are Zionists.
If the region is constantly tied down with foreign meddling, terrorism (guess who funds/brainwashes that terrorism? their Wahhabi pals), then it won’t prosper or develop. So idiots like you can shut up with your self righteousness because imperialism is a burden on others. You live in an empire because someone else is dying at the receiving end of the extortion. They happen to be mostly in the Middle East. If you had family in Iraq or Syria, or Libya or Afghanistan or Yemen, I bet you’ll be singing a different story pal.
The Arab world is passed its empire days. Europe is passed its empire days. Russia is passed its empire days. Iran is passed its empire days. Israel is passed its empire days. The US is going to be facing the same situation soon, then China will have its time. But China does not want a military empire, only a business one. You see, China can source energy from Russia quite reliably and safely, while America can’t do that unless it installs some worthless puppets in power, causing all sorts of problems because it doesn’t know how to get along well with anyone that isn’t a slave. Russia will be the world’s energy super-power in the next 50 years, its Arctic reserves hold alot of gas and oil, and the northern sea lane will open up for trade between Europe and Asia once the ice melts, cutting shipping transport costs and time. China will be the dominant economic power. Eurasia will be the centre of power. America will still be a super-power but at the rate of all this stupidity, not one that anybody will take very seriously.
What the Middle East needs is peace and economic development. But will Zionists accept that? Or are they paranoid about some resurgent Islamic empire coming to get them?
The Nakba, Muslims Hate EVERYBODY. Even fellow Muslims, for 1,400 years.
When Muslims can’t get along with Muslims, how can anyone expect Musims to get along with NON-Muslims.
Get your own house in order you ignorant Sand Nazi.
Peace is coming to IsraeI and the countries that surround it.
A Seven Year Peace Treaty – IsreaI will expand many many times it self after ALIMIGHTY GOD
IsraeI would have been defeated in all it’s battles Without Jehovah help.
3.5 years Tribulation and 3.5 years of Great Tribulation
But the True length of the Tribulation period is 2.5 years
If you have not done so already, now would be a perfect time to get right with God. Acknowledge Jesus as your savior, the true Messiah. Repent of your sins. Not to sound like a doom-sayer, but a war like no other in history is about to unfold in a matter of days. Americans can say things like, “Bring it! Americans don’t fear Russians and Iranians.” But the truth of the matter is that fear does not matter. They will not be trying to scare you. They will try to kill you. Americans did not fear the terrorists on 9-11 either, but look what happened. It is stupid to claim bravery when you have nothing to back it up with.
Only a 5th column jew would say “Bring it on!”.
Before the first shot is fired, he already fled to Israel.
We Americans want these rats out of our country before its too late.
Now I get why jews were always expelled from the coutries they were living in. SINCE EVER!
Hey, Henry F$%k, Israel (Jews) have been fighting your battles against jihad and Islamism long before you were a little Jew-hater sperm swimming through the cervix to your mother’s uterus.
You are the coward avoiding defending your own and, ironically, you are one who enjoys the freedom at the expense of Jewish soldiers (and American soldiers) who are on the front lines for the benefit of all. They sometimes lose their lives to defend freedom for you and me.
The rats are people like you who have had half their brains removed by the leftist propaganda they get in some churches and synagogues and especially in jihadist Mosques – the kind of hate that we know all too well.
Not an “Anonymous coward” – but a pretentious, feeble-minded moron, who “thinks” to hide his stupidity under “anonymity”…
The Great Hate that many people have is because satan sent FAKE JEWS to IsraeI, about 1,000 years
ago to assimilate with God’s True Jewish children.
The people who hate jews are really hating the FAKE JEWS who own EVERYTHING nearly on the
This is all written in the Bible.
The thing is that you only have that country called USA, because you slaughtered most of the indigenous Native American Indians, in a horrific genocide, stole their lands and colonized it.
Then you act in a “holier than thou basis” deciding in your own mind who belongs in this land called America, without even considering that you are the illegal settler.
I say this to show you the stupidity of your comment and your lack of inclusiveness, peace and love.
I would say you need to change your mind set and hypocricy.
Peace out, my brother – send out messages of love.
@ Miel Rachman,
Hey, gangaman, riiiight, “peace out” like those of the “Religion of Pieces” ?
And if it’s all just an evolutionary process, what’s with this “peace” and “love” nonsense?!?! It all boils down to survival of the fittest, now don’t it, cowboy? Come on, let your inner animal out, bro, same as the rest of us here, eager to git ‘er on!!!
Hey, Patrick, if Jesus works for you then enjoy your beliefs but do not push your beliefs on me. I do not go for religions like Christianity and Islam that push their religions on others or else face death. Christianity has almost removed the stain of “or else” from their belief system by Muslims have not. Muslims are still in the believe in Mohammad “or else be killed” phase of their religious development. That is the source of all the other ugly problems emanating from belief in jihad and exactly why we are having this discussion today.
There is a complete difference between Christianity and Catholicism. Saying that Christians are to blame for all the unholy and unrighteous slaughtering the Catholics had done in the past is like someone claiming that it is the American’s fault for WW2 because … well … they had weapons too. Putting aside all ignorance and misunderstanding allows one to develop a real and true view of Christianity and Jesus.
Why would a Christian like Putin align himself with a upstart religion like Iran theocratic Nazis. Is it oil alone?
He is a narcissist and megalomaniac. Pukin sees the world in the same way as some of the leftists in this forum – he thinks that by imitating western power and making alliances with dogs and pigs, that he will achieve his goal of making himself a powerful equal to the West.
Pukin would be better off just joining western powers and I think that he has taken the first step this week by giving the green light to this military exercise and thus unwinding his destructive relationship with Iran. Russia will eventually be in confrontation with Iran.
Because not everything you think is all about religion.
Iranians are given a very bad wrap by the Zionist-infested Western media.
So let me return the favour: Why would Christians and Jews align with the disgusting Wahhabi regime in Riyadh – which is even more vile than the Iranian one?
Answer: because the plan of the Anglo Zionists is to use the Wahhabi terrorist hive to weaken Islam and Muslim countries across the Middle East. The House of Saud is an important pawn on the chessboard for Anglo Zionists because they are an ideological cash cow used to brainwash and recruit cannon fodder Jihadis to fight on behalf of Israel, UK and America across the Middle East.
Wahhabis are fake Muslims, some even say crypto-Jews, who are used to weaken Islam.
Dude, I know for a fact that Abu Bakr was the rightful heir to the filthy pedophile. Ali was nothing but an inbred mongoloid, and his followers have done little to improve on his lamentable condition. In fact, they’ve clearly followed in his footsteps, the results of which are now on full display for the whole world to see.
Now run back to your momma/sister for a hug, hog.
The inquisition started in Spain… Dors anyone knows why?
Hitler got it.
Arabs got it.
Russians got it.
Ukrainians got it.
China got it.
Yanks don’t get it. Yet
Did your doctor drop you on your head when you sprang from her limbs during birth? How is the job coming along as the last remaining Neanderthal freak at the circus?
Did your ex-wife leave you for a Jew, or something? Well if so, I give my congratulations to her for finally developing a sense of taste.
What you are implying makes no sense, as the inquisition was aimed at all new converts to Catholism, Jews, muslims, pagans, and anyone who was suspected of pretending to be a new Christian.
All others, not just Jews who refused to convert, where expelled by the Catholic dictatorship.
It was no different in Islam.
Your level of seething hatred will not resolve anything, but only stoke more fires of hatred from all sides.
Try a different tactic, you may change things far more quickly – change hatred to love and embrace all as brothers and sisters.
Oh come on Debka….you call yourself Mossad, one of the supposedly “best” intel agencies around and you are jumping on this Syrian chemical weapons bullshit? LOL. Please. OK so Bashar supposedly used chemical weapons produced in Syria to attack a bunch of Western-backed head cutters in Douma (with MI6/CIA/MIT/Mossad support) just as they were about to surrender and evacuate their asses back to Turkey.
Using chemical weapons in Douma, where many Syrian soldiers have family makes absolutely NO SENSE!!!
Not so smart afterall, are we?
Russia will now give Syria and Iran S-400 and S-300. Which is perfectly fine because these are defensive weapons, not offensive weapons. And NATO wasted what, like $80 million on cruise missiles that were shot down with the S-200 and Pantsir?
The whole thing was staged, which I guess was a better solution for all involved than a hot conflict. So lets at least take a good breathe that this did not lead to anything more stupid than what this shitshow already is. I would say the biggest morons around right now are Macron, Trump and May.
Why then do you support gassing children if you say that “it makes no sense”? You are the one who makes no sense and you go on a propaganda foaming-mouth tirade in these posts defending the indefensible.
It shows that you have blood on your hands and carry lots of guilt for carrying out murder or supporting those who do. Nobody will give you a pass for mass murder, genocide and Islamic jihad backed by leftist dhimmis who work towards similar goals as Islamists.
Western intel agencies and their proxies, in particular MI6 and the “White Helmets”, supports killing children for snuff videos to sway naive people like you to buy the propaganda about Assad being a bad guy.
You’re the one who looks like an idiot.
I’m guessing you also believe the Russians poisoned the Skirpals too, right? With “Novichok”, supposedly more lethal than chlorine, mustard gas, VX and sarin. Yet they miraculously somehow survived!!!!
Your governments are using chemical weapons and you can’t even see it. In particular, the British.
Chutzshit: Go take a flying leap into the Bosphorus or a flying leap from the Kaaba.
The elite have been doing FALSE FLAGS by the hundreds, all gas attacks are FALSE FLAGS.
Remember they ALL WORK TOGETHER, no matter what country you talk about, they are all in Secret
Societies Working against you all together always.
Well, we know from the damage to the civilian area that Syria was touting that at least one or more of the anti-air missiles fired did not strike a target, but did land on the heads of hapless civilians. The US claims zero missiles intercepted, the Russians claim 71, the truth is probably somewhere in-between, most likely in the low range of 5 to 10 at most, and probably not that many. The Russians plan on a response that can and will get a lot of Russians killed and Russian strategic assets shot down and destroyed. It will also allow us to strike Iran, finally, as the site of the strike launch. So, this may be the beginning of a war, one that Russia cannot win in this area. But it may go nuclear, due to Russian weakness in non-nuclear military forces.
Light up Assad’s home with a 300 kiloton thermonuke.
One thing is for sure – if this US-UK-France action had been carried out exclusively by Israel, the US-UK-France would have condemned the action, warned Israel to not escalate, reminded Israel to only use proportional response, prevent civilian casualties and to get back to the “negotiating table.” The hypocrisy of all actors is unbelievable. There is one set of rules for the international community when they conduct war or the “war on terrorism” and another for Israel. Even the Islamic enemies (Turkey, Iran, Terrorstinians, Syria, etc) get more room to conduct war with impunity than Israel gets to defend its own people and country.
Russian defence have proven to be obsolete. ROFLMAO
The US-UK-France will paint the Russian defenses as a credible defense because Russia was informed, in agreement and acted in lock-step with US-UK-France.
The Iranians are now in deep suspicion and maybe eventual confrontation with Russia because the Russia-Iran-Turkey Axis of Evil is coming apart and because Iran cannot rely on Russia to be loyal. Russia uses Iran and Iran uses Russia – that is the extent of their relationship – not much glue to keep them together – and it won’t take much to get them into a Russo-Iranian conflict.
Your talking crap as usual. There will be no conflict between Iran and Russia. In fact, the Iranians have allowed Russian bombers to use their airports and there is deep economic cooperation and friendly relations between both countries. Iran is also going to get into the SCO and likely the EAEU.
Aww Shuddup faggot
You 12 year olds should leave mom’s basement every now and then for some fresh air.
Dumbass, Fascist Islamist Iran sides with Fascist Islamist Chechyns who already bombed Moscow.
Muslims collude to attack Infidels. Even Infidels who for the moment side with Islamist pigs.
The Russians are dumb horse thieves. They have to get bloodied badly before they sober up and FINALLY side with the West.
The Russians are the DUMBEST and most JEALOUS people in the world. Pootin looks like a low grade moron riding without a shirt on his Siberian pony. He should suck on a lolipop while riding his pony.
YOU are the low grade moron around here. The Saudis supported the Chechens, not Iranians. And guess what? The Russians crushed them, now Chechnya is booming with investment and peace.
Russia can get along with almost everyone, even with states with opposing interests, – Europe, China, Saudis, Iran, Israel, Turkey, India…you name it. Can the Ameridumb empire do the same?
Everyone except for the jealous Anglo Zionist regimes in Washington and London, who have this profitable and measly business called Russia bashing.
So I think Americans can learn some good lessons from Putin and Russia: drop the bullshit attitude. Putin is a statesman, you are just a nobody.
This recent attack was “insufficient” only because Assad’s presidential palace complex was not destroyed !
He probable fled to Teheran anyway, (for the duration.)
I hope that part of the plan is to retire the serial killer opthamologist from Syria
And once again the winner is: RAYTHEON
This happened after the april 2017 strike…
“Raytheon, the company that makes the Tomahawk missiles used in the air strikes on Syria by the United States, is rising in early stock trading Friday”…
Raytheon stocks will continue to rise also in 2018…
Putin and Trump are big stock market investors…
LOCKHEED MARTIN has got its share as well…
Their stealthy JASSM-ER saw its first combat use…
And now theyr lates toy is climbing the wishlists…
Once again the russians didn’t use their S400…
Using it against a 100 cruise missiles barrage would have been very expensive and they know that they would have shoot many but not all of them…
Once again they acted in order to keep their toy high in the wishlists…
So a grade of 30%. That’s not a pass in any place I know.
MANPADS ARE COMING TO THE SYRIAN REBELS SOON.
The main problem of the world is 3 bullshit religions. Islam, cristianity and jewish. Without these 3 shiiiiiiiits the world will be much safer.
The Jewish Jesus Christ is alive.
Mohammed is dead.
Step by step, Syria will become the second Afghanistan experience for Russians, they forgot the history of USSR army
I have some questions : why isis use american and israely weapons ? Is usa realy fight isis or that was just a show ? Thank you
Nuke ‘em till they glow!
– Leftists, globalists and muslims, that is.
I am very disappointed in this comment section. I am surprised that Debka allows so many racist, offensive,and blatantly ignorant and personal posts on its website.
I was hoping for some intelligent analysis or comments, but only found juvenile name-calling and insults.
One of the only sensible comments here, so true what you say.
The racist, offensive comments are usually coming from very immature individuals, who happen to feel quite hopeless in their fear.
Yes it is deep fear, insecurity and impotency, that causes these remarks.
Right on – 100% ! Miel and allan – am with you – God bless !
Just a show
Trump and his pom and frog allies are morons with total disregard for world peace. This is not about gas attacks, it’s about securing territory for pipelines. Unprovoked attacks on a sovereign country like this deserve retaliation big time. Enough is enough and I commend the Russians for being so restrained. The time has come for Russia to step up and put America and NATO in their place – the rest of the world don’t want american self-appointed world police.
If Russia tries to bring in big slow bombers and new fighter jets, and think they will hit the allies at will, they will learn the hard way about true stealth. They had better fire everything from Iran, because they’ll all be shot down over Iraq and Syria if they attempt a bombing run. They’ll never see the jet that hit them. Also, we did not attack Russian assets in Syria but that will change if they engage their S-400 system. We’ll wipe it out and the rest of that base in short order if they attempt to use it. Hey Putler, you’re outgunned – whine a little bit and sit down. Hey ASSad, you’ve been warned. A word to the wise is sufficient.
Joe, that’s a lot of thrash, even for a guy who lives in a trailer park. Lol
It’s gonna be a pretty long war between external state actors in Syria with lots of back and forth moves on both sides. The result will be a total disaster for Syria and a complete destruction of Damascus.
71 missiles were shot down?Much,very much.Russians did not show everything they can. Soviet superiority is preserved.
Conclusion after the strikes:not munch.A couple of buildings flattened.Assad,Russia,Iran will be relieved and can finished the job. Or gonna we get a hot summer?
russians irans always respond only with words that is all not acts !!!!they fear US .RUSSIANS KNOW THAT IN CONVENTIONNEL WAR US WILL DESTROY THEM.
AFTER THAT BEATING FROM US WHO WILL BUY NOW RUSSIANS S300 S400 S500 OR OTHERS RUSSIANS ARMS
No more civilian casualties.
Send Mosad to kill Asad and Khamenei’s.
CIA may be sent for help
Israel is the monster behind all this. Take them out and all this crap ENDS.
Eventually Damascus will be destroyed to the point that no one will live there ever again.
And Russia and Iran and Turkey will lead a coalition of nation against Israel.
But Israel will prevail.
JOOS ON THE BRAIN=A WORLD-WIDE OBSESSION—20 MILL JOOS V.S 7+ BILL NON-JEWS?? WHY THE FOCUS ON THIS MICROSCOPIC MINORITY??—IT’S AN OBSESSION!@!!! GET A FUCKING LIFE U SPAWN!
THE KING OF DENMARK-AFTER WW2–WAS ASKED WHY HIS PEOPLE SAVED SO MANY JEWS
HIS RESPONSE=”UNLIKE THE GERMANS, WE NEVER HAS AN INFERIORITY COMPLEX REGARDING THE JOOS”–GOT THE PICTURE U FILTHY JOO HATER DRAPING YOURSELF IN “FAIR AND EVEN-HANDED CRITICISM” OF THE JOOS…YA FILTH
U CAN CREDIT THE KRISTIAN CHURCH FOR THE 2000 YR TEACHING OF CONTEMPT FOR THE JOOS IN THE DISGUSTING ANTI-JOO SCREED KNOW AS THE NEW TESTAMENT–A PACK OF LIES DEVISED BY THE PROMOTERS OF THE NEW RELIGION TO DIFFERENTIATE THESELVES AND PROMOTE THEIR LIES TO THE GENTILES–THERE A WHOLE FIELD OF STUDY DEVOTED TO THIS PROBLEM===
People who don’t read the Scriptures are fools. How can you not believe when Ezekiel 17 and 38 is a unfolding before our eyes on the world stage? Anyone with any intelligence think Putin, Assad and the Persians suddenly decided for fun to act out a scenario written 4 thousand years ago which leads to their humiliation??? It is written those who bless Israel will be blessed, those who curse Israel will be cursed. Want to go test God ?
Dear Jews out there. Don’t waste your time and effort trying to convince anyone. G-d chose us and created anti-Semites. Like it says in the scripture.” Eisav hated Jaacob”. It natural for the non Jews to hate the Jews.( except for the few that don’t) That’s how G-d created the world. We know it better than anyone else. Look at at history( holocaust , Spanish inquisition…) No one came and stood up for us.
G-d has a plan. We might not understand it but it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. If we understood everything G-d did/ does. We would be G-d. Yet, we don’t. Why? Cuz we are limited human beings taht can never fully comprehend the unlimited.
G-d sent these Jew-haters. Its okay because we have G-d on our side who will always protect us from them. EVERYTHING that happens is his will. Good or bad( seemingly in our eyes)
We just need to trust in him and follow wjat he says( the Torah). Don’t let your self get caught up in this hate. Just spread the good. Do a good deed and hasten to coming of Moshiach. May it come speedily!!!
To a Jew from a fellow Jew: AMEN !
#4 Assad still retains substantial quantities of poison weapons even after these sites were struck by more than 100 missiles. He is still capable of using them again and will not be deterred from doing so if he thinks his regime is in danger.
Then hey – perhaps next time he’ll be smart enough to use it on his ENEMIES instead of bloody children in areas he’s already taken 90+% of ?????
And tell me – how come – if huge stockpiles of CW were destroyed at the struck “CW facilities” half of Damascus didn’t die from exposure to the stuff when the US blasted it into the air??
I thought this was supposed to be a good site providing clear, well analysed info – obviously I was misled.
Israel, your time is up. The Russian bear makes ready his alliance with Persia, Turkey, and Syria to destroy Israel.
Wb – abbreviation for “Wet-brain” ! A daily quart of vodka would guarantee it – and your post sounds like it…
Shows how little you know. Putin’s opposition to Israel is about as real as WWF wrestling. Also, anyone that has traveled to Iran soon learns that at least among the people there is very little criticism of Israel. Saudi Arabia – Yes, Bahrain – Yes. Israel not so much. Iranian Jews that live in Iran do so with no persecution. So I wouldn’t be so certain of Iran if I were you. Their leaders make statements for public consumption. However, if Iranians start getting killed in large numbers by Israel, that will certainly change. Iranians are nothing if not patriotic no matter how much they may despise their government.
Russia vows a response. Watch your flank, Israel.
Iran is mighty JeVVS are ugly RATS!!!!
truly a sad situation
All the US, UK and French attack on Syria caused is that Russia is significantly increasing it’s anti Aircraft facilities in Syria and Transferring many systems to the Syrian forces. The Russian Tor M2 Anti Aircraft missile system, is now is Syria and the S300 is on it’s way. . . Russia has transferred many Pantsir-S1 systems. . .
Israel must hate that as Syria will get up to date anti aircraft missiles rather than just having the 1980’s missiles which downed the Israel plane. . .
Well, here it is April 30th and still no response so this must be FAKE NEWS?
The Syrian chemical attack was fake news. I do not think Russia and Iran will retaliate they know the West is provoking Syria for a War.
So far Assad President Assad has been Fighting Against Christian Genocide in Syria

100 missiles hitting chemical weapons stockpiles without causing major catastrophe among the civilian population far and wide??? What drugs are you on? None were hit because there weren’t any…and your missiles didn’t get through. A major military flop for the USA.
