UPDATED 7:50 PM EDT -- (See bottom)

  • Important events occurring in Syria today: 
    - Turkey continues to move units closer to the border and past bolstering its presence in the region.
    - Israel strikes Iranian targets.
    - Russia conducts limited airstrikes and continues Mediterranean Sea drills.
    - US issues warning to Syrian gov
  • - USS Newport News attack submarine noted entering Med yesterday
    - Turkey deploys a limited number of combat vessels to Med
    - Syrian units continuing massing near #Idlib"

Less than 48 Hours ago, on September 2, this web site reported to the world that the Syrian Arab Army offensive to re-take Idlib Province from Terrorists and Rebels had begun (HERE).  Yet within a couple hours, that "Offensive" stopped dead in its tracks without any public explanation.

Yesterday, September 3, it was revealed that the "offensive" was halted because the United States told Russia and Syria that it would not simply sit-by and do nothing as a Province with 2.3 Million people came under attack.  The US made clear it felt such an attack would be a humanitarian disaster and urged both Syria and Russia to refrain from such activities, despite Idlib Province being the final holdout of Terrorists and Rebels who have torn Syria apart for the last 7 years.

Today, September 4, Russia answered those US concerns by conducting at least twenty-six  (26) air strikes upon Idlib.  Some photos are beginning to emerge from the area:

Hardly spectacular.

The Kremlin also stated this morning that "The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is preparing to solve the Idlib terrorism problem" which seems to indicate the SAA is not yet prepared for the major offensive planned.

Yesterday, RUMORS indicated the SAA offensive was delayed until "at least Friday" but again, these were merely RUMORS.



The US and its allies supplied weapons to isis and Nusra Front terrorists via third countries such as Ukraine, according to Alaa Saeed Din Hamdan, the first secretary of the Syrian Foreign Ministry's international relations department.

"It is obvious that the United States and its allies are supplying a huge amount of ammunition and weapons, using third countries such as the Eastern European countries, Ukraine, and the Balkan states, to fuel the Nusra Front and ISIS," the official said.

Syria has made progress in the destruction of international terrorism, but the actions of external players are hampering its victory, he added.



Israel Airport Authority announces changes to international routes & expected delays to Ben-Gurion airport due to huge Russian military drills in coming days. Russian buildup in Mediterranean has significantly increased recently to it’s largest presence since entering Syria.


Several explosions rocked the strategic town of Masyaf in western Hama.

According to the source, an Israeli warplane was spotted flying along the Syrian-Lebanon border before crossing into the Homs Governorate.

The source added that five missiles struck the Wadi Al-‘Ayoun area.


A second explosion around the coastal city of Banias, north of Tartus, is confirmed, the cause of the explosion remains unknown, could be an Israeli air strike or a failed ground to air missile that was launched at Israeli warplanes\missiles.


Lebanese Sources are informing me they heard possible Israeli warplanes in the skies over Beirut 15 minutes ago, reports of some explosions in Maysaf in Syria now, unconfirmed reports of Syrian Air Defenses engaging targets"


Turkey deploying even MORE fighting vehicles to Syria Border at Idlib:


Syrian officials blaming Israel for the numerous strikes reported throughout the area, video showing jets flying over Lebanon have been shown over Twitter.


WHITE HOUSE: US will "respond swiftly" if Assad uses chemical weapons again, says White House


Could be Syria related:

"The IDF Chief of Staff cancelled all prior engagements for tonight. Israel"

(HT NOTE: Unusual movement of high-ranking government officials is one of the things we look for when deciding how serious a crisis might be.)


UN Security Council will meet Friday regarding Idlib Syria"


US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo spoke on Tuesday over the phone with his Turkish counterpart, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, about the situation in Idlib, Syria.

The statement on the call, attributable to State Department Spokeswoman Heather Nauert, takes a stronger position against than the one taken by US President Donald Trump the day prior.

"President Bashar al-Assad of Syria must not recklessly attack Idlib Province. The Russians and Iranians would be making a grave humanitarian mistake to take part in this potential human tragedy," Trump tweeted on Monday. "Hundreds of thousands of people could be killed. Don’t let that happen!"

Now, it appears that the State Department and the White House aren't exactly on the same page. While Trump cautioned against a "reckless attack," the State Department, in conjunction with the Turkish Foreign Ministry, is calling "any Assad military offensive" in Idlib "unacceptable."

Pompeo and Cavusoglu "agreed that any Assad regime military offensive in Idlib would be an unacceptable, reckless escalation of the conflict in Syria," the statement reads.

    There are three power Russia China USA
    Russia has managed to catch up and even surpass the Western powers in designing new types of weapons in a little less than twenty years.
    Western experts relayed by the political class and the media had become accustomed to talking about post-communist Russia as a country incapable of escaping without Western help. They are now very disconcerted when the Russians impose their strategic vision with their military forces in Syria or Crimea for example and then express their frustration with crude provocations.
    But how can this underestimation of Russian military power be explained and why has it not been anticipated?

      How? Seriously? EASY --
      Just enter "CIA incompetency" or "CIA corruption" into a search engine.
      John Brennan's JOB was to inform the country about foreign threats---
      John Brennan is the puppet master behind the Trump-Russia collusion narrative and he helped promote Hillary’s garbage Russia dossier.
      Russian hypermissiles were a TOTAL SURPRISE,
      Ukraine/Crimea was a surprise.
      Bengahzi was a surprise.
      Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syrian, Ukraine outcomes were ALL TOTAL SURPRISES.
      The fact the USSR was dead on it's feet was a TOTAL SURPRISE so we "just had" to squander Trillion$ arming against it and enriching the MIC. ----
      The CIA that was going to kill Castro with exploding cigars and make his beard fall out.
      The CIA that cannot beat the Drug Cartels, AlQueda, Taliban, ISIS ...
      The CLUELESS CIA that is ALWAYS surprised and UNAWARE.
      All because Brennan and the CIA was too busy spying on YOU and undermining Your Rights ---- to do his job.
      Everything is a TOTAL SURPRISE to the CIA --- except for what your child is saying to his/her BFF and what You had for dinner.
      Brennan approved the 9/11 hijacker's visas to come into America. Brennan was station chief in Saudi Arabia from 1996 through 1999, and then promoted to CIA leadership (Wikipedia) “This is a systemic problem,” said Nikolai Wenzel, a former U.S. consular officer. “It’s a problem of sloppiness, it’s a problem of negligence which I would call criminal negligence because obviously, having reviewed all these applications, there is a pattern here.” The pattern? None of the 15 applications reviewed was filled out properly.

        Trump's deeds confirm he is a blackmailed agent of Israel.
        1. Bombing, invading and threatening Syria
        2. Moving embassy to Jerusalem
        3. Abrogating Iran Nuclear Deal and sanctioning Iran and companies that do business with Iran.
        4. Cutting off humanitarian aid to Palestinians.
        Trump's nationalist policies are popular with many Americans but they are a bribe to
        ensnare them in a prophesied Armageddon (world war) designed to herald
        the return of the "Messiah" (antichrist) and the Satanist NWO. The US is gearing up for such a war.
        A Mossad false flag will ignite the powder keg. We are morally compromised by our complacency.

    "An Israeli fighter was hit by a ground air rocket from Tartous base and made a forced landing on Incirlik base, Turkey." Good! I hate Israel! The Hebes have been quietly supporting the so-called Syrian rebels since 2011. The Syrian war needs to end--NOW!--yet Netanyahu and his thugs keep extending a life line to ISIS and the other terrorist groups who invaded the country under the auspices of the CIA in order to overthrow Assad and ultimately Putin, thus making Russia a vassal state of the West and Syria a mere transit region for shipments of natural gas from Qatar to Europe.

      QIAduh is an attempt to cheerlead Drumpf's base after they started turning against Drumf when he TWICE bombed Syria based on fake WMD allegations. Whether it has official help via vague "info" or is just a b.s. thing that was begun by a few of his diehard groupies is not certain. Many of their "big drops" are rehashed b.s. Those few that have merit usually steal their 'scoops' from people like Hal's website.

          If some merchant has so much money he can brag about all the charities he is supporting .... he is charging you too much.
          Ever notice "capitalism" is NEVER mentioned in the Constitution. You have a RIGHT to your property, but so-called "capitalism" is never mentioned.
          Thank "capitalism".... Instead of having babies/families White Christians were "diverted" into working their lives away to PRODUCE in the name of Capitalism ....... People worked to serve the "machine" instead of the Machine serving Christ.
          Talk about BAD STEWARDS ..... the 1% has utterly failed Christ and HIS People. Their businesses should have been the basis for providing life's necessities for the Community of Christ. Instead they are providing a petrie dish for growing the disease of barbarism from paganism at home to invading ISLAM. Without a Christian base and Western philosophy the laws that allow these corporations would never have been written.
          Yes, communism/socialism are worse, but not by much. Christians should have been raising Children, not the bank accounts of the 1%.
          Instead of working to create a strong, healthy, growing, society, the Rich "Harvested the corners of the fields" and gathered every grain into THEIR castles and cared not for the Culture and Religion that made their very existence possible.

          Time for the 1% and Corporations to contribute PROPORTIONATELY to the National Defense.
          Those who have massive material goods must contribute proportionately to protecting them.
          If the 1% were paying proportionately they would become concerned about waste, fraud & THEFT in the Pentagon.
          The Workers give their LIVES maimed and killed.
          The Workers Pay high taxes for ONE house with a MORTGAGE.
          The !% and Corporations have multiple houses, pay ever decreasing taxes and enjoy the FAT of the land.
          And no more TAX DODGING "trusts", "endowments" and "foundations" where they still CONTROL their money, they just don't PAY TAXES. Spend the money in 5 years or it goes to the National Debt.

            “Merchants have no country,” wrote Thomas Jefferson in 1814. “The mere spot they stand on does not constitute so strong an attachment as that from which they draw their gains.” The former president was ruing the way New England traders and shipowners, fearing the loss of lucrative transatlantic commerce, failed to rally to their country in the War of 1812.

            Since pseudo-conservatives/neocons , are so enamored of the words of our forefathers would someone please dig out the old Sermons preached in American churches about the FOUL MERCANTILISTS whose ONLY loyalty is to money. Neither Nation nor Church holds the devotion of these squalid creatures, but only the source of their next dollar.
