How They Attacked Syria
How It All Started
Setting Up A Terrorist Army
"Timber Sycamore" was an operation to arm a bunch of militants and have them violently overthrow the government of Syria. The United States claimed that they were only arming "moderate rebels" who had the popular support of the people. But that was a complete lie. The militants were a bunch of terrorists and criminals who were part of groups like ISIS and al-Nusra. Even Syrians who didn't like Assad knew he was a better option than the militants.
Terrorists with TOW missiles
TOW missiles are expensive, sophisticated laser-guided weapons that are powerful enough to penetrate heavy armor (kill tanks), blow up bunkers, and in general wreak havoc on the enemy. They are only made in America, and a single shot from one of these costs as much as a house. ISIS and al-Nusra mysteriously had hundreds of these things. Yet the United States claims it was not arming terorists.
Terrorists Storm Across Syria & Iraq
Destroying Ancient Artifacts/Monuments
And Killing Everyone In Their Path
Assad Fought Back But Was Losing
With all of his major cities under siege, the Syrian President was running low on money and munitions. So, in a deperate attempt to defend his country from the savage horde of terrorists, he resorted to using "barrel bombs" (oil drum barrels full of dynamite and metal scraps dropped from helicopters). It was a crude tactic, but his back was against the wall, and it was his only option.
So Russia Stepped In To Help
Providing Assad the Air Support He Needed
The Syrian government was out of munitions, and was getting lots of bad press about their use of crude "barrel bombs". So, at the request of the Syrian government, Russia stepped in and gave the Syrian military the fighter jets, missiles, and training they needed to fight back against the terrorist army.
Why Russia Got Involved:
Vladimir Putin had tremendous popular support for sending his military to help Assad in Syria - because Russia is an Orthodox Christian country, and the savage horde of terrorists were destroying lots of priceless Orthodox Christian heritage (monuments, texts, and churches from 100-300AD).
Fake Chemical Weapons Attack
The US gov wanted to send ground troops to Syria, but they knew that Americans wouldn't be down for that. So they got the Saudis to stage chemical weapons attacks (WMDs) against Syrian civilians, and blamed Assad, so they would have an excuse to send troops (like they had previously done in Iraq).
In 2013, Sarin Gas (WMD) was used to kill ~1400 civilians in Ghouta. In 2017, it was used to kill 89 civilians in Khan Shaykhun. In 2018, it was used to kill 50 civilians in Douma.
The UN sent a team of experts to investigate the use of WMDs, but the team was attacked, so they left and outsourced the investigation to the White Helmets (terrorists posing as aid-workers).
The original reports that came out blamed everything on Assad, but years later, engineers from the UN investigative team leaked the real report, which debunked the American narrative.
Obama Talks Tough, But Does Nothing
Obama said that if the Syrian government used chemical weapons, that would be a "Red Line" that would cause him to send ground troops to invade Syria. But when the attack happened, he decided not to, because deep-down he knew the attack was a false flag (sadistic stunt designed to provoke war), and he knew his base would be mad if he did.
Trump Tries To Respond Carefully
Navy Launches Missiles
Facing tremendous pressure to retaliate, Trump compromised with military leaders and shot missiles at empty buildings. Had the media not been so hostile to him, Trump might have been able to explain how the whole thing was BS.
Free Advertising For Russia
Russian-made S400 missile defense systems shot down many of the American tomahawks fired at Syria. When Turkey saw how effective & cheap they were, they bought some for themselves. Which made the US very mad.
Limited Troops Sent To Syria
Ultimately, Trump resisted the pressure to start another disastrous full-scale war (like Iraq). But corrupt military leaders continued to push for ground troops. So Trump gave in, and some US troops are now occupying parts of Syria.
