I wouldn't have the courage to write this without the support and reassurance given by Suzie Dawson, who has endured far worse than this but took the time to reassure me that I'm not going crazy. For that, I am most grateful.

RUSSIA BRINGS WITNESSES TO HAGUE TO DEBUNK DOUMA ‘CHEMICAL ATTACK’ ACCUSATIONS AGAINST SYRIAN GOVERNMENT
26 April, 2018
Moscow’s delegation to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) and witnesses of the supposed chemical attack in Syria’s Douma held a press briefing in Hague on April 26.
Following the April 7 incident in Douma, the US-led bloc accused Syrian government of using chemical weapons against civilians there. Russia and Syria reject these accusations. The US, the UK and France used the incident to justify their April 14 missile strike on Syria.
“We can prove today that the White Helmets’ runner was a crudely staged product,” Shulgin said. “Consequently, the references our Western partners – we call them ‘partners’ – make to the runner as a piece of evidence of the chemical attack are simply null and void.”
“Our news briefing today was aimed to show precisely this fact,” he said.
“We were at the basement and we heard people shouting that we needed to go to a hospital. We went through a tunnel. At the hospital they started pouring cold water on me,” Hassan Diab told the press conference.
“The others were ready too, but the experts are sticking to their own guidelines. They’ve picked six people, talked to them, and said they were ‘completely satisfied’ with their account and did not have any further questions,” he said adding that the allegations by “certain Western countries” ahead of the briefing that Russia and Syria were seeking to “hide” the witnesses from the OPCW experts did not hold water.

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei urged Muslims to “stand up against the bullying America and the rest of the world’s arrogant powers” at the 35th International Holy Quran Contest in Tehran on Thursday.
He also praised the achievements of the Muslims in this respect saying “We have grown stronger roots, to the surprise of those who wanted to eradicate the Islamic Republic. We grew stronger and more powerful and made more headway, to their surprise.”
“Do learn the Holy Quran and act according to it and be bound by it for your own life, your personal life, and your social life and your governmental life,” advised the Iranian Supreme Leader.

Russian Navy Unleashes Missiles Against ISIS and "Rebels" in Syria -- AMERICANS KILLED
26 April, 2018
Russian submarines in the Mediterranean Sea are currently launching ballistic missiles at ‘rebels’ in an area known as the Hama pocket, massive explosions reported.
This is a developing story, updates shortly.
UPDATE 5:15 PM EDT --
Russia DID NOT notify the US prior to launching these attacks and, according to several of my former colleagues in various governments, AMERICANS are among the dead! It is not known at this time if the Americans are regular military or contractors.
According to a single intel source, the US is not reacting publicly to this (yet) because the government does not want the American people to know it's "Advisers" were involved with ISIS and were killed because they were actually in the presence of ISIS, helping them!
UPDATE 6:11 PM EDT --
The Russian attack CONTINUES at this hour . . . The map below shows the area involved:
UPDATE 8:09 PM EDT --
Additional sources now saying that at least one BRITISH and one ISRAELI were also killed inside a Rebel headquarters which was hit by Russian Missiles.
As above, I am not yet aware of whether these were regular military or contractors, but the Intel Source is very clear: "At least one Brit and one Israeli were killed."
Mattis: Expect War Between Iran and Israel soon - starting in Syria
26 April, 2018
A military confrontation between Israel and Iran in Syria is becoming increasing likely, US Defense Secretary James Mattis warned on Thursday as his Israeli counterpart was visiting Washington to discuss the threat.
Secretary Mattis delivered his warning of yet another military conflict in the Middle East at a hearing in Congress. Asked if Israel and Iran were edging toward military confrontation, he said: “I can see how it might start, but I am not sure when or where.”
"I think that it's very likely in Syria because Iran continues to do its proxy work there through Hezbollah.”
He accused Iran of not only expanding and strengthening its presence in Syria but also “bringing advanced weapons for Hezbollah through Syria”.
Israel, he said “will not wait to see those missiles in the air and we hope Iran would pull back”.
The Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman, who met US national security adviser John Bolton and Secretary Mattis on Thursday, also warned of a confrontation with Iran.
"Any site in which we see an Iranian attempt to achieve a military foothold in Syria will be struck. We won't let that happen, regardless of the price," he told the Arabic news website Elaph.
Israel said it carried out air strikes against Iranian and Syrian targets in Syria in February after one its F16 fighter jets was downed near the Syrian border.From al-Masdar News
US going to expand fight in Syria – Mattis
26 April, 2018
US Secretary of Defense James Mattis has explained his country’s decision not to withdraw troops from Syria during a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing, referring to increased Daesh offensives in the region.
“Right now we are not withdrawing [US troops from Syria],” Mattis told the Senate Armed Services Committee. “We are continuing the fight, we are going to expand it and bring in more regional support.”
According to the top US defense official, the United States will expand its anti-Daesh operation with the help of regional states.
Amid Trump’s statements concerning the mulled pullout of US troops, Defense Secretary James Mattis has previously outlined the possibility of terrorist groups regrouping in remote positions in Syria, saying to the US president that the withdrawal would reverse the progress achieved so far.
On March 3, US President Donald Trump announced his plans to pull the country’s troops out from Syria in the near-term, which was met with a conflicting reaction from the president’s special envoy to the US-led coalition, Brett McGurk, as well as incoming US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Joseph Dunford, as well as a number of other officials.
Following the strong reaction from the officials, Trump decided to keep troops in Syria. However, according to a representative of his administration, “he wasn’t thrilled about it, to say the least”.
The United States has maintained a military presence in Syria since 2014, leading a coalition of allies in the fight against Daesh, without a UN mandate or authorization from the Syrian government. Damascus has consistently called the US military presence in the country “illegal.”
Communication With Russia in Syria
Speaking about the communication line between Russian and US forces in Syria, Mattis noted that it has never been interrupted.
“Right now in Syria, we have an open and never interrupted deconfliction communication line that has worked pretty well to make certain we do not run afoul of one another’s forces or one another’s operations,” Mattis told the Senate Armed Services Committee.
The US and Russian military commanders set up deconfliction communication channels last year, aimed to avoid any accidents between their forces as both sides recaptured territory from Daesh along opposite sides of the Euphrates River. As part of these efforts, US and Russian forces maintain three telephone lines of communication — one for ground troops, another for air forces, and a third for senior commanders.
*Daesh, also known as ISIL/ISIS/IS, is a terrorist group banned in Russia and many other countries
Sanctions Against Allies
The US Secretary of Defense went on by speaking about a national security waiver that would exempt certain US allies including Vietnam and India from secondary sanctions when they conduct arms trade with Russia.
“There are nations in the world who are trying to turn away from formerly Russian-sourced weapons and systems. We only need to look at India, Vietnam and some others to recognize that eventually, we are going to parallelize ourselves. So what we ask for is the Senate and the House pass a national security waiver in the hand of the Secretary of State,” Mattis said.
Under the US Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act, countries that conduct arms deals with Russia risk secondary sanctions. Some US allies including Vietnam and India have Russian-made weapons hardware that they want to modernize without risking sanction.
