Germany, Italy Refuse To Join Deep State’s Syria Regime Change Coalition

As madness grips most members of NATO, with our own British Prime Minister Theresa May trying to out – Trump Trump in her displays of gung ho egomania, two nations at least are taking a more rational view. Italy and Germany have said they will not be involved in, or even support airstrikes on Syria.
Understandable, especially in the case of Germany which is right in the firing line if Putin decides to take out a few East Coast townships, and also relies on Russia for 40% of its energy needs, enough to bring the country to a standstill if the supply is suddenly switched off.

Italy is less dependent on Russian oil and gas, but does export quite a lot of agricultural produce to Russia.

Germany, understanding that involvement in any strike on Syria would further jeopardize its relationship with the Kremlin, stated unequivocally that it will not join any military strikes against Syria in response to the alleged chemical gas attack on an opposition enclave which Russia claims was a “white helmet” false flag, but takes a more diplomatic line by expressing support for Western efforts to show the use of chemical weapons is unacceptable, Chancellor Angela Merkel said.

Angela Merkel said after meeting Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen in Berlin. “We support everything that is being done to show that the use of chemical weapons is not acceptable.”

Which is a less direct way of saying “we are happy to do anything except whatever puts us on Putin’s black list.”

Meanwhile in Dublin, Germany’s new Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said Germany expects to be consulted before any Western allies conduct an attack on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces as the allies must be united on the matter.

Earlier, Merkel spoke with French President Emmanuel Macron about the suspected gas attack and expressed her concern that the international community’s ability to ban chemical weapons was eroding.” Perhaps this is because of the NATO and the EU’s increasing belligerence in international affairs. For example, the gramdmotherfucker Macron, in an outburst reminiscent of America’s cocksucker president Barack Obama’s reaction to previous reports of gas attacks yesterday claimed he had irrefutable proof that the Assad regime and Russia were responsible for this latest chemical attack, but offered no evidence to back up his claim.

Amusingly, instead of focusing on the nature of the schism between Germany and its allies, Europe’s most powerful nation chose to deflect attention to the lack of a coherent European policy on the matter: an easy excuse in a continent in which there is virtually no cohesion on any matter:

Roettgen urged the European Union to develop a policy for the Middle East as a whole,

Moments after Germany said would not participate any Syrian strikes, Italy too said it took would refuse to participate in any military action against Russia or Assad.

However, just like Germany the Italians announced they would supply logistical support to any military operation against the Assad regime. Which means that the two nations that will lead the attack on Syria when it inevitable comes, whether with or without the US, will be the UK, whose subs are already on location off the coast of Syria, and France, whose slimeball president is just itching to suck up to the Americans.

Did Russia Shoot Down US Missiles In Syria

When President Trump ordered a missile strike on a Syrian military airbase in retaliation for the alleged chemical weapon incident near the ISIS HQ town Raqqa (an obvious false flag incident) a few days earlier, of the fifty nine Tomahawk missiles launched from US navy ships, only thirty six made landfall. The missiles that reached their target did some damage but the air base, used by aircraft of the Syrian government and planes from Russia, was operational again within hours.

So what happened to the thirty six misslies that disappeared? Maybe Jonathan Roth of RiskHedge  learned the answer during an exclusive video interview with Dr. Theodore Karasik, a senior advisor to Gulf State Analytics. The geopolitical analyst says there is an alternate story making the rounds about the United States’ April 7 missile strike on Syria’s Shayrat Airbase in response to the Syrian regime’s alleged use of sarin gas on its own people.

“Not all missiles made their target,” says Dr.  Karasik, “There were supposed to be 60. One malfunctioned on one of the ships. 36 made target, the remainder did not. And, there’s a question of where did they go?”

Dr. Karasik, a former senior political scientist in the International Policy and Security Group at RAND Corporation, spent the last decade in the Middle East and retains an extensive network in the region.

“The missing [missiles] were either brought down by S-300 battery or were taken over by Russian electronic jamming and were plunged into the sea,” explains Dr. Karasik. “Now, this alternative theory means that the US and Russia have already clashed if you will—technically—with the use of the TLAMs (Tomahawk missiles) and then being intercepted or taken over by Russian control.”

If true, this means the US and Russia have had a direct military confrontation for the first time in decades.

“This is very important,” says Dr. Karasik, “because it illustrates that we’ve had our first encounter with the Russians, and that sets the stage for potentially future encounters between Washington and Russia on the Syrian battlefield.”

In addition, the rationale for the missile strike in the first place—Bashar al-Assad’s sarin gas attack on his own people—may be based on faulty intelligence.

“Apparently, the location of the attack itself is in an industrial area where there are a lot of toxic industrial chemicals located,” says Dr. Karasik. “The attack on this location produced a toxic cloud that was deadly enough, obviously, to kill and maim hundreds. The issue here is that in this particular attack, where this industrial gas was released, this is not in any way related to a sarin-type attack.”

Dr. Karasik says sarin is an odorless agent while victims complained they smelled an odor. He also explains that medics who were treating the victims were not properly dressed to handle sarin gas.

“Yes, there was an industrial toxic agent that killed and maimed people,” says Dr. Karasik. “But, whether or not it was sarin still has not been proven.”

This alternative theory is coming from a number of different places, according to Dr. Karasik, including sources in Washington, the Gulf region, and Russia.

A Comedy Of Errors At The Theatre of Dreams

I have to say I was tempted just to leave the title, it sums up my visit to Old Trafford yesterday quite beautifully.

Firstly I was aked to remove the bottle top from my newly purchased bottle of water.

Good grief did they think I was a terrorist?

No, they thought I might actually be able to do some damage hurling my bottle top towards the pitch from my position in row 236 of the stands.

So having established base camp we attained the summit of Old Trafford whereupon I noticed in my exertions I now only had a third of a bottle of water left, the rest having been slopped out as we juggled with ice picks, crampons and belaying ropes on our ascent up the North East Face of the football stadium.

At which point I did of course throw my nearly empty bottle away in disgust, managing to knock off a stewards high vis jacket and soak several tiers of Scholes’ Rooneys’ and Giggs’ into the bargain.

The pies from the stand one level above base camp proved to be completely inedible, the filling looking like it had been deposited there by our latest kitten, Bascule, but made much better missiles, even coming in aluminium trays that could then be scrunched up into a firm ball, thus giving superior aerodynamic qualities to the plastic bottle top.

A further weapon in our arsenal was the stadium bought burger, which flew like a frisbee, but had the added benefit of a coating of flour on the surface of the bap which was dissseminated during flight causing irritation to the eyes of all those within three feet of its trajectory.

But enough of the over zealous officials, ooh just an aside here I got told off at the swimming pool the other day for leaving a trail of water from the poolside and into the changing rooms. Not quite sure how you are meant to keep the floor dry when you’ve just emerged fom 100,000 cubic metres of water, but there you go and yes you have guessed correctly, I do now make sure I take the scenic route through the changing room to my locker, a good cozzie can hold up to a gallon you know. tee hee.

Anyway back to the comedy ogf errors. Yes in true Shaklespearean fashion Man U players seemed to be confused by the similarity of the chaps in yellow to those of their team-mates in red and kept on giving the ball away every time they got near the goal. I find myself today with a rather painful wrist which I can only put down to RSI from slapping my hand to my forehead whilst yelling “Oh good grief!”

Still they managed to score in the end and it was a great day out, not actually been to Old Trafford since 1968, it’s changed a bit!
