America first was not apparent in the strike on Syria.
Globalist, Bankers, Israel first looked more to be the reality.
Yes, Israel, that’s what struck me about this US attack. This move echoed the usual Israeli airstrikes that benefit the terrorists in Syria. Was the US acting to benefit Israel? To take the heat off of Israel’s constant support of terrorists? Advancing the balkanization agenda?
Working towards that no fly zone? I’d say it was all of the aforementioned. As stated the so called ‘chemical attack’ was a total pretext created so US could intervene. A more likely scenario was provided in the post relinked below:
No Fly/Safe Zone Pretext for Syria? Cause Trump was Absolutely Going To Do Safe Zones!
Let's entertain these thoughts, with a ht to hubby. The "rebels" or perhaps US/Israeli/UK Special OPS, (we know they are on the ground in Syria and had intelligence and the logistic capabilities to undertake such an op ) had mortar shells loaded with a chemical munition, knowing airstrikes were inevitable, they launched their mortars either in advance of and/or during airstrikes and then immediately cried wolf. The airstrikes providing the ultimate distraction. These actors provided the US/Israel with the desired pretext.
Immediately preceding the attack the terrorists made advances. And there are reports of civilian deaths. RT
“Undoubtedly, the American attack on the Shayrat air force base was aimed at supporting terrorist groups and weakening the fighting capacity of the army of the Syrian Army, which is fighting the terrorists,” Barazi told RT. “According to recent reports, the attack resulted in the deaths of five soldiers and nine civilians and the wounding of thirteen women and children who were in the nearby Shayrat village.”There is a discrepancy between the Tomahawks launched- 59 claimed, and corresponding hits on the airbase.

MOSCOW, April 7. /TASS/. Only 23 out of 59 cruise missiles fired from US warships at a Syrian air base hit the target, according to Russia’s data recording equipment, Defense Ministry spokesman Major-General Igor Konashenkov said on Friday.Tomahawks really aren't "all that" (Superior. Admired)
"The combat effectiveness of the US massive missile strike on Syria’s airbase was thus very low," the ministry's spokesman stressed.The #USSPorter and #USSRoss fired #Tomahawk missiles into Syria in retaliation for the Assad regime using nerve agents against its people. pic.twitter.com/Ad908k3oIe— U.S. Dept of Defense (@DeptofDefense) 7 April 2017
"According to the data recording equipment, only 23 missiles reached the Syrian air base. The place where the other missiles fell remains unknown," the spokesman said.
In Search of a (FEW) Lost Cruise Missile - From 2003
“A Tomahawk cruise missile is not easy to lose. The very reason the U.S. military is willing to spend $750,000 a piece on the precision-guided munitions is precisely that they go exactly where they?re told. But in the past week, three U.S. Tomahawks have gone missing in the rocky plains of southeastern Turkey en route to Iraq, several hundred miles from the war zone. Five more went astray in Saudi Arabia, and a handful of others have broken up in Iran and, reportedly, Syria”
Including in the US- 2016 Tomahawk Missile Very Nearly Misses Florida Fisherman
There was scary situation Tuesday near Eglin Air Force base, where a Tomahawk missile crashed in Okaloosa County.Making it very likely the missiles went astray and killed civilians.
It happened during a Navy test run, and the missile was not armed with explosives or radioactive material.
While no one was injured, it was a close call for a fisherman who witnessed the missile crash from his boat.
U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley warns U.S. "prepared to do more" after Syria strike
This woman is vile. She should make the pussyhat feminists proud. She's the quintessential ugly American.
What about Turkey? It's reported that Russia and Turkey are still in touch!
And talkin' Syria Russia's foreign minister discussed Syria with his Turkish counterpart
Russia's Foreign Ministry said on Friday that Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov discussed the U.S. missile strike on Syria with his Turkish counterpart Mevlut Cavusoglu by phone.
"The importance of an objective, impartial investigation into all circumstances of the tragedy in Khan Sheikhoun along with cases of chemical weapons use by terrorist groups in the past were underlined," it said in a statement, referring to Tuesday's gas attack in that town.If I had to guess at why Turkey is 'going along to get along' with the US move, I'd say one word

Covered the arrest of Reza Zarrab in 2013: Turkey: Halkbank - Role in Iran Gold Transactions Legal
UPDATE: Turkish Banker is Indicted by US in Iran Sanctions Circumvention Case
7:30 est: The indictment against Mehmet Hakan Atilla, a deputy chief executive at Turkiye Halk Bankasi AS, one of Turkey’s largest banks, is largely a legal formality that adds him as a defendant to the case against Reza Zarrab, a Turkish-Iranian businessman.
The case against Zarrab has become a high-profile controversy in the U.S. and has roiled diplomatic relations with Turkey. Zarrab has hired former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani and ex-U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey to seek a resolution to his case, and the two have met with Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan and sought high-level U.S. talks on his behalf. Earlier this week, a U.S. judge ordered a hearing into Giuliani and Mukasey’s activities and said he wanted to know who was paying Zarrab’s legal bills.
Strikes on Syria: Game Changer Between US and Turkey?
Time will tell
Do not believe there is any truth whatsoever to US claims of avoiding sarin stores at Syrian Airbase- Just utter rubbish
“There were measures put in place to avoid hitting what we believe is a storage of sarin gas, so that that would not be ignited and cause a hazard to civilians or anyone else,” he said.As mentioned above the US cannot control the missiles and many, many missiles have gone astray- so there is not a way in hell that can be considered credible!
Might this explain the 60 percent failure rate ?
An electronic warfare advantage? If anyone can expand on these capabilities that would be great!
Several systems at Russia’s disposal
“To win a contemporary war, it is not enough to dominate in the air. It is necessary to secure an information advantage,” says Vladimir Balybin, Head of the research centre for radio-electronic battle and concealment efficiency. Apart from Khibiny, the Russian defence industry manufactures various types of equipment that could surprise active enemy units as well as criminals and terrorists.
Airborne forces are being re-equipped with Infauna complexes. These are installed on armoured vehicles or other military vehicles and can locate and jam enemy’s radio connection in short wave and ultra-short wave frequencies, and “put out” remotely-controlled land-bombs. They will explode but only after the Russian troops have passed by and are far enough to be safe.
Infauna has another function: the optic sensors installed on both sides of the vehicle spot flashes of discharges and command laying smokes-screen to protect convoys from fire.
The Lesochek device fulfils the same functions as Infauna but is portable and can fit into a backpack or a suitcase. It can be useful at important talks for protection against most advanced security services interception systems.
The Borisoglebsk-2 is the core of the radio-electronic warfare of the tactical units of the Russian army. It comprises an automated command point and four types of jamming stations – they use a single algorithm to identify and jam the sources of hostile activity on the air.
The Zhitel device locates and blocks satellite and mobile phones, subscription complexes of GPS-navigation. It proved efficient during the conflict in South Ossetia by misleading Georgian drone aircraft.
