The Whore of Babylon is fetched a slap – 71 times

The reader might well expect that there is no surprise chez FBEL that World War III did in fact not break out on Friday 13th April. Indeed, according to one Syrian on Twitter, the skies of Damascus were clear early on Saturday morning. Older western audiences will remember the images of “shock and awe” wreaked upon Baghdad when Saddam Hussein had been earmarked for regime change, and remark at the stark contrast with the blue over Syria in the photograph posted by @WaelAlRussi.

Notice that in this image (as is the case in others to be found in a Google image search that the author made) there are no palls or columns of smoke, indicating that there are no sustained fires on the ground from the bombing. Which means that the red haze in the sky that could be seen in images gathered during the US-led attack must have been caused by the Syrian air defences as they intercepted the incoming cruise missiles.

The Russian Ministry of Defence says that 71 out of 103 cruise missiles were shot down – the reader can see its full report here. The headline information must be this, though:

A number Syrian military airfields, industrial and research facilities suffered the missile-bomb strike.

As preliminary reported, there are no civilian casualties and losses among the Syrian Arab Army (SAA). Information will be further specified and made public.

The Mighty America, the Exceptional Nation, managed to knock a few buildings over, and put a few holes in the dirt of a Biblical landscape that has had much worse done to it in its time. Anyone telling you that this failure was Trump pulling his punches is either so badly mistaken as not to be worth taking any notice of, or peddling disinformation†. What actually happened is that the Syrian air defences worked like some of us have been predicting they would. These Syrian air defences – older S-200s‡ – which the world was told in another big lie a few weeks ago had been destroyed by Israel. Moreover, it was the potential disruption that these air defences, albeit only in conjunction with a complementary Russian defensive response, would cause to any militarily meaningful American attack, that meant that the Pentagon and the White House were reduced to relative magic tricks. We should note that the US took great pains to avoid inducing Russia into a response – @WaelAlRussi also reports that two of the three attack waves came from the south – and the last one came from the west, presumably from the Mediterranean, and was aimed over Lebanon for fear of spooking the Russians at Tartus. [Note for future reference: is there any significance to this sequence?  Were the deployments from the Mediterranean initially in reserve?]

But do not be of any doubt: the Americans wanted plumes of black cloud as the cherry on the top of what was a pyrotechnic exercise in gaslighting, The bombing was for the psychological conditioning of a western audience in relation to the claim by the US/UK Government that a chemical weapons attack had taken place in Douma. It represented an attributing of guilt by punishment. It is simple psychology to a) state the policeman is the good guy, and b) decide his shooting victim is therefore bad by dint of being shot. No other proof required. This attack was borne out of its perpetrators being in trouble for a chemical weapons narrative that is on the verge of collapse; the British Government, having been fingered for staging the false-flag, and with its fire-starting operatives reportedly in Syrian custody, must be sweating buckets for fear of finally having its “collar felt” in terms of being universally identified as being the pariah-nation – the position it would have Russia occupy. And so it could well be that some secondary objective with the US attack was to try and destroy evidence, or otherwise dissuade the OPCW investigation of Douma that was scheduled for today. The author doesn’t have any information that the site was a target, and only time will tell if the OPCW investigators get to have a look at the evidence on the ground.

As for the criminality of the British Government; it has never ever been plainer. The question is, what to do about it? And to be clear – when we talk of the British Government at FBEL, we mean HM’s Opposition too. Corbyn talks of UK involvement in a flagrantly illegal attack on Syria as “legally questionable”. One shouldn’t expect any more from a limited hangout. The actual answer is civil disobedience targeted against the entire Establishment – an idea that those clinging on to the left/right paradigm will never arrive at – but with the fiasco of Brexit about to come into full bloom, this was on the cards in any case; watch this space.

The final word for now: there are some Americans – Christians apparently – who think that there is an “end-times” omen in the shape of Damascus in ruins; thus they rather sadistically see American military involvement in Syria as some prophesised fatality. The author is pretty sure, off the top of his head, that it doesn’t come from the Gospels, but can be sure of this about it: “Damascus” would be the symbolic capital of the Babylonian World Government; it is anywhere where the people worship Baal, and cry out for the human sacrifice of a scapegoat as a substitute so that their Lord doesn’t persecute them instead. I’m here to tell you that “Damascus” in heaped ashes and smoking ruins is in fact London and Washington, and English-speaking so-called Christians should be careful what they wish for in their rapture-seeking delusion (please see the FBEL article Latest man of lawlessness advances the Luciferian deception; enthrals the betrayed).

 

 

Some are also protesting too much; at some point being seen to unconditionally support Trump has to become bad for business. Certain alternative media platforms and commentators also clearly played on fears about the commencement of a world war.

‡ [Update, 16th April]: For the record, a whole array of missiles were used; this is from the Russian Ministry of Defence’s briefing:

Pantsyr AD system fired 25 missiles and hit 24 targets;

Buk system fired 29 missiles and hit 24 targets;

Osa system fired 11 and hit 5 targets;

S-125 system fired 13 missiles and hit 5 targets;

Strela-10 system fired 5 missiles and hit 3 targets;

Kvadrat system fired 21 and hit 11 targets;

S-200 system fired 8 and hit no targets.

Interesting comments were made about the S-200:

It is to be added that no one should be misled by low results made by S-200 air defence missile systems.

This system is primarily designed to hit aircraft. However, this system shot down a fighter of a neighboring country. The aircraft took efforts to intrude airspace of the Syrian Arab Republic.

The mention of the fighter belonging to a neighbouring country has to be referencing that Israeli F-16 that was shot down in February.
