The Destruction of Damascus Draws Nigh: US General, ‘We Are Preparing for Military Action in Syria’

World Events and the Bible

WEB Notes: The destruction most definitely draws nigh (Isaiah 17:1). We have documented all of the preparations being taken by world powers. The war games in JordanIsrael’s testing of a nuclear missile, while Russia conducts the biggest war games in post Soviet times. Historically, there is a financial collapse before war, we witnessed that in WWI and WWII. Before anything major breaks out I would expect that. It is very possible the Syrian invasion starts pre-collapse and that collapse is imminent as well.   

(VideoRT) – President Barack Obama is considering using military force in Syria, and the Pentagon has prepared various scenarios for possible United States intervention.

Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the Obama administration is deliberating whether or not it should use the brute of the US military in Syria during a Thursday morning Senate hearing.

Gen. Dempsey said the administration was considering using “kinetic strikes” in Syria and said “issue is under deliberation inside of our agencies of government,” the Associated Press reported from Washington.

Dempsey, 61, is the highest ranking officer in the US military and has been nominated by Pres. Obama to serve a second term in that role. The Senate Armed Services Committee questioned him Thursday morning as part of the nominating process when Dempsey briefly discussed the situation in Syria.

Last month, the Obama administration concluded that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons during the ongoing battles. Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications Ben Rhodes said, “The intelligence community estimates that 100 to 150 people have died from detected chemical weapons attacks in Syria to date; however, casualty data is likely incomplete.”

Pres. Obama said previously that the use of chemical weapons would cross a “red line” and likely trigger American intervention. When the White House concluded Assad had relied on chemical warfare, Rhodes said, “both the political and the military opposition . . . is and will be receiving US assistance.”

That claim was met with skepticism, though. The Syrian Foreign Ministry called Obama’s claims a “caravan of lies.” Vitaly Churkin, Russia’s ambassador to the United Nations, later presented to the UN evidence supplied to his government that suggested the Syrian opposition fighters used chemical weapons.

With regards to foreign intervention, UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon said, “Providing arms to either side would not address this current situation.” Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) and his father, former congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas) have also cautioned the White House against aiding Syrian rebels.

You will be funding today the allies of al Qaeda” by aiding Syrian rebels, Sen. Paul said in May.

On his part, the retired lawmaker from Texas insisted that the administration’s lead up to possible intervention is “identical to the massive deception campaign that led us into the Iraq War.”

That isn’t to say the GOP is entirely opposed to taking any action. Although directly using the American military — either through boots-on-the-ground or unmanned aircraft — has been rarely discussed in public, Sens. John McCain (R-Arizona) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), two long-time leaders within the Republican party, have been relentless with efforts to equip opposition fighters.

I don’t care what it takes,” Graham told Foreign Policy’s The Cable earlier this year. “If the choice is to send in troops to secure the weapons sites versus allowing chemical weapons to get in the hands of some of the most violent people in the world, I vote to cut this off before it becomes a problem.”

Other US officials have previously said Washington is considering implementing a no-fly zone above Syria, and last month the Pentagon left a fleet of F-16 fighter planes and its Patriot anti-missile system on the border of neighboring Jordan following a routine military drill. –RT: US preparing for military action in Syria, top US general says

  1. The EU just voted to stop sending some monthly welfare checks to that parasite state AKA Israel, so Betty Nuttyahoo will probably react like a typical bully and lash out at Gazans or those Palestinians in the West Bank or to really cheer that terrorist up, he’ll get his flunkies Cameron and Barry Sotero to bomb the hell out of Syria.

  2. There are more mentally disturbed people in the federal government than than there are in mental institutions.They should be put away so they can’t hurt anyone or cause anymore damage.

    1. The only place they can be put where “they can’t hurt anyone or cause anymore damage.” is on the end of a rope.

  3. it figures we will like Israel attack a weakened country just from the air who has been at a long civil war. we waited until 10 years of sanctions which weakened a weak Iraq before we attacked them

  4. Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications Ben Rhodes said, “The intelligence community estimates that 100 to 150 people have died from detected chemical weapons attacks in Syria to date; however, casualty data is likely incomplete.”

    Ben Rhodes a Khazar parasite. Surprise Surprise Surprise.

    Another lie to advance greater Israel.

    And how about those Russians? What a help they’ve been to Syria.

    Again, who benefits from US/NATO, Russia and China at war….

    And I just have to point this out:

    Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications Ben Rhodes said, “The intelligence community estimates that 100 to 150 people have died from detected chemical weapons attacks in Syria to date; however, casualty data is likely incomplete.”

    Really?

    How many people die every day from western chemical weapons?? I mean….’medicine’, chem trails, flouride, bovine growth hormone, monsanto gmos, strange gasses sprayed in New York subways, depleted uranium, corexit, ‘ vaccines’, chemotherapy, and on and on and on…..

    Stick it Rhodes! Stick it till it puts a hole in the roof of your mouth!

    -flek

  5. “Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the Obama administration is deliberating whether or not it should use the brute of the US military in Syria during a Thursday morning Senate hearing.”

    You do, and I hope you get creamed.

    They ain’t Afghanistan, Iraq, or even Libya.

  6. Betcha neocons and “Christian” Zionists are getting their “rapture ready” “white garments” on waiting for blood and death. I do hope I am wrong about this!

  7. Today at a local cafe I met a young man who had just returned from a tour of duty in Afganistan. He told me he’d hope to make a career of the Army, however, serving for a bunch of worthless issues & open lies convinced him otherwise…..yes & poppie growth did enter the picture as did China buying up all the natural resources…….The NWO is like a freight train out of control! Now, since the young man couldn’t find a job he started washing windows & is at least his own boss, good on him!!!!! Continue to fight for Liberty & Freedom
