“It was a totally Trump show from beginning to end,” the senior adviser said. “A few of the president’s senior national security advisers viewed the mission as a minimized bad presidential decision, and one that they had an obligation to carry out. But I don’t think our national security people are going to allow themselves to be hustled into a bad decision again. If Trump had gone for option three, there might have been some immediate resignations.”
The position of the militants in the Northern Hama continues to deteriorate. After the defeat in the battle of Tabiat al-Imam, there is more of a direct threat from the advance of the SAA to Morek and Latamanah to the position of militants in the area of Halfaya. Because of this, the command of the fighters was forced to pull out troops North, leaving Halfaya (for which a long time of heavy fighting) and the positions to the East of it.
Fierce fighting continues in the area Halfaya. Syrian sources say the build-up of intense artillery fire from the SAA in the direction of Lataminah may indicate the seriousness the intention to eliminate the Lataminah bulge. Entrenched in Taybat al-Imam, SAA gets the opportunity to move in the direction of Lataminah actually going to the flank and rear of the group of militants holding the front in the area Halfaya. It is not excluded that with this growing threat, the militants are likely to lose Halfaya within a week and be forced to move to back to Lataminah, and the SAA in turn, moving from Taybat al-Imam and Souran, can create a threat to Morek, moving along the road toward Khan Shaykhun.
Now that things have started to calm down a bit after Donald T. Dildo dropped a load of Tomahawks on Syria last week, a lot of us can resume pushing back against the insufferable idiots and anti-Assad liars in government, MSM, and cyberspace who are trying to pin yet another false-flag “sarin attack” on Bashar al-Assad in order to justify taking him out. Following my insistence that there was no “sarin attack” at Khan Sheikhoun a lot of people are asking: “How can we know it wasn’t sarin?”
The medical and technical evidence is not consistent with a sarin attack by the Syrian government. All of the videos and pictures of the incident were taken in al-Qaeda controlled territory. All witnesses were under al-Qaeda control. How much of the incident was staged for videos (see al-Qaeda doctor video linked above) or how many of the witnesses were told to lie is not testable under current circumstance. The Syrian government insist that it has given up all its chemical weapons. The Russian government also asserts that no chemical weapon attack took place.
Analysis using weather data from the time of the attack shows that a small hamlet about 300 m to the east southeast of the crater could be the only location affected by the alleged nerve agent release. Video data of suffocating and dead victims lying on the ground shows a different location from the predicted sarin dispersal site if it had been correctly identified by the White House.
