***** BULLETIN **** Russia State TV telling citizens "What to take to the Bomb Shelter" (See Bottom Update)
Serious developments have taken place overnight concerning the ongoing situation in Syria. ALL of my former colleagues in the Intelligence Community tell me the United States, the United Kingdom, and France have placed their Middle East military units on ALERT for what most believe will be a SUSTAINED US/UK/France direct attack against Syria commencing as early as tonight! This article will be LIVE UPDATED throughout today (Tuesday, 10 April 2018). LIVE UPDATES TERMINATED AT 11:17 PM EDT
British Air Force units on Cyprus are openly being loaded with bombs, missiles and ammunition. The Russian Baltic Fleet has declared a Combat Alert. Russian strategic bombers are in the air over the Mediterranean Sea, loaded with air-to-ship cruise missiles and the Russian Air Force is conducting heavy Combat Air Patrols throughout the region.
This situation is like a huge pile of dynamite waiting for a spark to explode into direct war between Russia, the US/NATO and regional powers in the Middle East.
Russia, the only nation with permission from the Syrian government to be in that country, has told the US/UK & France they will NOT ALLOW another attack upon their ally, Syria. Russia has made clear that it will counter-attack; shooting down any missiles launched at Syria, shooting down any aircraft attacking Syria, then further attacking any Navy ship which launched such missiles and air bases from which attacking planes were launched!
The US/UK/France claim that a Chemical Weapons attack was perpetrated 4 days ago against innocent civilians in a suburb of Damascus called east Ghouta. The attack ALLEGEDLY involved Chlorine Gas and possibly a Nerve Agent.
Reports vary, saying between 40 and 161 civilians were KILLED and upwards of 1,000 others injured.
The US/UK/France blame this "attack" upon the Syrian Government, but evidence from the area shows Chlorine Cylinders manufactured by MERCK, at their Schudgardt, Germany facility. That means the Chlorine was supplied by Germany, a NATO country. Here is one evidence photo:
MERCK has thus far FAILED to respond to my media inquiries which cited a serial number on one of those Chlorine Cylinders. I contacted MERCK in Germany seeking answers to who bought that cylinder, when, to whom was that cylinder shipped, where and when? MERCK in Germany failed to respond.
I then called MERCK World Headquarters which is located in my home state of New Jersey. Julie Ann from MERCK's National Call Center told me she was unable to get anyone from their Global Communications Group to answer my inquiry and they would get back in touch with me. No such return call was received from MERCK. What is MERCK hiding?
Clearly, the chemical/Pharmaceutical giant has records on who they sold the Chlorine Gas to, when it was sold, and to whom it was shipped; why won't MERCK provide the information now that the company knows its product was used in a mass-murder chemical weapons attack? Who is MERCK protecting by failing to reveal the information?
Stockholders in MERCK may wish to ask themselves if they wish to continue holding stock in a corporation that conceals information involving a CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY? And now that this information is out here in public, other MERCK stockholders may wish to get out of MERCK before any potential avalanche of people decide they should cut-and-run from that company stock.
During the night, military units in Syria from the Syrian Arab Army, Iranian-backed Hezbollah, and Russia were ordered to begin DISPERSING from several bases, in anticipation of a US/UK/France military attack.
Russian Air Force has sortied at least two Early Warning Planes (A-50s) over Eastern and Western Syria, each one is guarded by two Russian Air Force (RuAF) fighter jets.
British military in Cyprus has been put on alert for military action in Syria with ‘remarkable’ activity being reported.

US Warships are reportedly converging in the Mediterranean, with the Pentagon already admitting the USS Donald Cook is on-station near Syria.
Surface vessels of the Chinese Navy in the Mediterranean in joint exercises with surface units of the Russian navy have been ordered to join the Russians at the Syrian port of Tartus in case of a possible aggression against Syria.

All this activity is taking place, yet the mass-media in the United States and Europe is virtually silent about it. Few if any stories are being reported as to the magnitude of what's taking place. It's almost as if the powers-that-be want the public kept in the dark until war suddenly breaks-out. This way, the public is frightened at the sudden catastrophe it is facing and will comply with what the government tells it out of fear.
From this point, updates will appear below as information becomes available. The updates are RAW INTELLIGENCE and I warn you now, in war there are often highly conflicting reports.

Russia's UN Ambassador, Vassily Nevenzia, has said the US draft resolution to condemn the continuing use of chemical weapons in Syria "contains some unacceptable elements which may make it even worse".
In addition to USS Donald Cook, the U.S has now dispatched USN Carrier Strike Group 8 to the Mediterranean/#Syria:
- USS Harry Truman aircraft carrier
- Carrier Air Wing VII
- USS Hué City missile cruiser
- x6 Arleigh Burke-class Destroyers
- x1 Oliver Hazard Perry-class frigate
OPCW to send independent chemical weapons investigators to #Syria's Douma in what is hailed as a diplomatic breakthrough, hoping to prevent a #US-led strike on Syria. #Russia has backed the inspection.
“Today, the OPCW Technical Secretariat has requested the Syrian Arab Republic to make the necessary arrangements for such a deployment. This has coincided with a request from the Syrian Arab Republic and the Russian Federation to investigate the allegations of chemical weapons use in Douma. The team is preparing to deploy to Syria shortly,” the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) said in a statement on Tuesday.
The incident allegedly occurred in the Damascus suburb of Douma on Saturday. It was reported by several rebel-linked activist groups, including the controversial White Helmets, who accused the Syrian troops of dropping chlorine-filled munitions on the area. They also claimed it affected dozens of civilians, and footage of children being allegedly treated for poisoning has appeared online.
Damascus has called the alleged attack a “fabrication.” Russian military specialists have explored the area as Jaysh al-Islam militants occupying Douma began to evacuate from the city as part of a Russian-brokered deal with Damascus. Moscow said the specialists had found no traces of chemical weapons or any victims treated for chemical poisoning.
The OPCW’s announcement came shortly before an expected UN Security Council meeting on the alleged Douma incident. Both Russia and the US are expected to roll out draft resolutions calling for an international investigation into the purported attack. On Monday, the UN said it was unable to “independently verify the allegations” regarding Douma.
“We're not in a position at this point to independently verify the allegations but, obviously, any allegation of continued use of chemical weapons is extremely, extremely troubling,” Stephane Dujarric, spokesman for UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, said.
Defense Sec. James Mattis was scheduled to travel to Nevada and San Francisco this weekend but has since canceled his trip, a U.S. official says

FOUR (4) US Navy E-6B's up - all on miscoded transponders! This is not an accident. They are scrambling the aircraft's identities.
The Boeing E-6 Mercury (formerly E-6 Hermes) is an airborne command post and communications relay based on the Boeing 707-320. The original E-6A manufactured by Boeing's defense division entered service with the United States Navy in July 1989, replacing the EC-130Q. This platform, now modified to the E-6B standard, conveys instructions from the National Command Authority to fleet ballistic missile submarines (see communication with submarines), a mission known as TACAMO (TAke Charge And Move Out). The E-6B model deployed in October 1998 also has the ability to remotely control Minuteman ICBMs using the Airborne Launch Control System. The E-6B replaced Air Force EC-135Cs in the "Looking Glass" role, providing command and control of U.S. nuclear forces should ground-based control become inoperable. With production lasting until 1991, the E-6 was the final new derivative of the Boeing 707 to be built.

PLEASE NOTE: AT ABOUT 5:26 PM EDT TODAY, I INSTRUCTED MY TECHNICAL PEOPLE TO TRANSFER THIS WEB SITE TO A DATA CENTER OUTSIDE THE CONTINENTAL UNITED STATES. THAT CHANGE IS IN-PROCESS. You should NOT encounter any interruption of service or outage as the change is being done behind the scenes and does NOT affect DNS. I have done this because I have UNCONFIRMED information about the possible evacuation of Russian government officials to "Command-and-Control Bunkers" in the Ural Mountains. Again this report is UNCONFIRMED. If they are moving their government people into bunkers, that would mean they believe this situation will go nuclear and if that happens, nowhere in the USA will be safe or operational. That's why I have ordered the master servers for this site to be moved outside the USA, so this site remains alive . . . even if I don't. People will be able to see exactly what led up to a potentially historic catastrophe. If you have found my reporting helpful (more than 25,000 of you have read this story today) please help me defer the extreme bandwidth costs and server changeover process, by making a small donation HERE -- every little bit helps.

10:01 PM EDT -- Nothing. Absolutely nothing. All my contacts in the Intel Community are silent.
Syria is 7 hours ahead of the US east coast. So as of this update it is 5:01 AM there. Sunrise is at 6:10 AM. So unless something takes place within the next hour, I'd say "doom off" for now.
The US does not (generally) launch big attacks in daylight because cruise missiles travel slow enough to be shot at by ground forces that are able to see them, and so the US (usually) strikes in the darkest hours of the night.
Perhaps this is a strategy; keep the target worried about what they "know" is coming. Increase the stress level. Drag it out. Make them tired. When people are tired, they don't function well. That's an advantage.
Either way, I have been awake since about 4:30 this morning and I'm totally bushed. At 11:00 my time, if nothing takes place, I will cease these live updates on this article.
Please donate. I'm getting blasted with Bandwidth (Data transfer) costs and could use the help.
10:11 PM EDT -- Reports President Assad leaving Damascus in a Russian convoy headed to the Lebanese border.
11:18 PM EDT -- The sun is now rising in Syria. Odds of an daylight attack are slim-to-none as far as I know, so I am TERMINATING the live updates of this article.
