Trump Told Mattis to Nuke Syria after Fake Gas Attack

source: VT

Editor’s note: Our sources have the real quote, “nuke em,’ I want to turn Damascus into a parking lot,” Trump to Secretary of Defense Mattis during April 2017 phone call.  Trump had just read Facebook posts, made by al Qaeda,  that claimed Syria had used chlorine gas in Idlib province.  Trump NEVER checks where his online information comes from, he thinks it’s all true.  “Unhinged” is an understatement.

A new book by Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward claiming to offer insight into a tumultuous Trump White House revealed the tense atmosphere during the lead-up to the US missile strikes against Syria in April 2017.

According to Woodward, following the alleged chemical attack at Khan Shaykhun on April 4, 2017, which Syrian and Russian officials slammed as a false flag attack aimed at discrediting the Syrian government, President Trump was so furious that he wanted to assassinate Syrian President Bashar Assad.

In a telephone call with Secretary of Defense James Mattis, Trump allegedly said the following, according to Woodward: “Let’s f***ing kill him! Let’s go in. Let’s kill the f***ing lot of them.”

Telling the president that he would deal with it, Mattis hung up the phone and instead allegedly told an aide: “We’re not going to do any of that. We’re going to be much more measured.”

Three days later, following internal consultations, but before the alleged chemical attack could be properly investigated, the United States launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles from destroyers in the Mediterranean Sea at the Shayrat air base, in what Washington claimed was a direct response to the Khan Shaykhun “attack.” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called the US aggression a violation of international law, with Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei describing it as a strategic mistake.

The US strike, which killed several Syrian troops and civilians, and destroyed several planes, failed to reach its objectives of crippling the Syrian Air Force, with aircraft taking off from the base’s runways just hours after the attack to strike terrorist targets.However, the attack did prompt Moscow to announce that it would take measures to help strengthen Syria’s air defenses.

On April 14, 2018, the United States and its British and French allies carried out new strikes, again over claims that the Syrian government had used chemical weapons, this time in Douma, using over 100 cruise missiles. Immediately following that attack, the Russian military reported that Syrian air defenses had shot down 71 of the 103 cruise missiles fired. Syrian media reported that half a dozen troops, and three civilians, had been injured in the attack.

In a fit of public rage on Twitter ahead of the strikes, Trump called President Assad an “animal,” and threatened a “big price to pay” for the “chemical attack,” which has since been conclusively proven to have been a false flag operation committed by the White Helmets organization.

The White House has yet to comment on the contents of Woodward’s book, or the authenticity of the quotes the journalist has ascribed to the president or General Mattis.

Breaking: Deadliest Chemical Attack In Syria Kills 58, Wounds 300

At least 58 people have been killed, including 11 children. After the chemical attack, a hospital tending to the wounded was bombed.

Though details vary, it is believed that at least 58 people – including 11 children – were killed in a “toxic gas” bombing raid on rebel-held Syrian town. The attack was carried out in Khan Shaykhun, a town in northwest Syria. Shortly after the area was bombarded with a suspected chemical agent, a hospital in Syria’s northern Idlib province was hit, relays an AFP war correspondent. The incident as a whole is being investigated as a possible war crime.

According to NPR’s Alison Meuse, who is reporting from Beirut:

“The opposition-leaning Syrian Observatory says warplanes carried out a number of strikes in the northern town, but that victims died of suffocation. Opposition activists published videos of purported victims, including one showing nine lifeless children. The U.N. finds Syrian government forces have used toxic chemicals in at least three attacks since 2014.”

The Union of Medical Care and Relief Organizations-USA says the attack killed “approximately 100 people, including at least 25 children.” A member of the White Helmets reported at least 300 to be injured. Three UOSSM medical staff were affected by the second attack at the hospital and were rushed to the ICU. 

Correspondent Alan Fisher for Al Jazeera said locals on the ground are expecting the death toll to rise and that many of the wounded are children.  

“There were people fainting, they were vomiting, they were foaming at the mouth,” Fisher said. “In that situation, the treatment tends to be to try and strip people off, to get the chemicals away from their bodies, to hose them down as quickly as possible. But even then some of the pictures that have been posted on social media in the last couple of hours show very young people struggling for breath, many people dead where they fell.”

The incident is being regarded as the deadliest chemical attack in Syria since sarin gas killed hundreds of civilians in Ghouta, near the nation’s capital in 2013. At the time, Damascus blamed rebels whereas Western states said the Syrian government was to blame. Both Syrian and Russian jets have bombed the area before.

Russia’s defense ministry has denied responsibility, telling the state-run RIA news agency that no bombings were carried out in the area on Tuesday. The Syrian government, as well, has denied using such weapons in the past, though has been found guilty of using chemical weapons by the United Nations.

News of the attack have resulted in international condemnation, most notably by spokespeople for the U.N. and the U.S. Reportedly, Secretary-General Antonio Guterres is “deeply disturbed by the reports.” Additionally, White House press secretary Sean Spicer commented:

“Today’s chemical attack in Syria against innocent people including women and children is reprehensible and cannot be ignored by the civilized world. These heinous actions by the Bashar al Assad regime are a consequence of the past administration’s weakness and irresolution. President Obama said in 2012 that he would establish a quote, unquote red line against the use of chemical weapons and then did nothing. The United States stands with our allies across the globe to condemn this intolerable act.”
