Syria Attack: ‘If It Comes, It Comes Tonight’

UNITED NATIONS – Former U.S./U.N. Ambassador and State Department negotiator John Bolton tells WND he expects the White House to launch its attack on Syria this weekend.

Bolton went on to suggest that such an attack could come late Saturday night or early Sunday morning.

“It simply scheduling,” Bolton told WND.  

The ambassador was pointing to Obama’s plans to travel to Europe and Russia for the upcoming G20 Summit to be held in St. Petersburg in early September.

Meanwhile in New York, U.N. chief Ban Ki-Moon received his first personal briefing on the Syrian crisis from his disarmament chief Angela Kane, who had just returned from meeting Syrian government officials in Damascus.

Inside sources tell WND that Kane explained to Ban that Syria did in fact use chemical weapons but that a firm conclusion would await the assessment of the U.N. chemical weapons inspection team, which just left Syria on Saturday.

While no date has been released for that report, diplomats expect some informal preliminary to be submitted to U.N. headquarters next week.

Watching from the sidelines has been new U.S./U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power, who has said little since she returned from a vacation in Ireland. Power has remained in New York City over the holiday weekend “on standby,” say U.S. sources.

If a U.S. attack does come, it will fall upon Power to block any Russian/Chinese attempt to convene an emergency session of the U.N. Security Council to condemn the U.S. military campaign.

Also maintaining a close vigil is the Israeli/U.N. mission.

Ambassador Ron Prosor, known for his flamboyant diplomacy, has remained uncharacteristically silent.

  1. Listen to neocon warmonger Bolton. The attack will come Saturday night because the president has a schedule to keep. So much for that surprise attack the generals planned out for weeks. And I’m sure Putin will throw the Fruitcake Emperor a big party when he arrives, with Vodka and dancing girls. Bolton talks of starting a war as if it was a trip to the local Seven Eleven. Pick up some milk and bread, buy me a scratcher lotto ticket and launch 500 cruise missiles on Syria, I’m hungry what’s for supper.

  2. The people I wouldn’t trust to run a hotdog stand have all the weaponry of the US military at their disposal. Really, why not just give Assad a precise time and exact area of the bombings to take place?

    Either this administrations thinks everyone is as stupid as they are, and or they are playing a rope a dope on this one.

    It just doesn’t make any sense.

  3. Bolton is the most rabid of all the fifth-column Zionists infesting our country. I can’t even stand to look at his face.

    1. Bolton’s face and his stupid mustache reminds me of a Looney Tunes cartoon. I can’t remember his name but he has the exact same mustache and he say’s things like “I have discovered the secret rocket formula”. What was the name of that cartoon character?
