According to the Pentagon, a mix of fighter jets, bombers and ship-based Tomahawk missiles were deployed in Syria, supposedly against “Islamic State targets in Syria”. Operations are expected to be “ongoing”, with more colourful and impressive graphics of the attacks available on CNN and FOX after the strikes were complete.

Keen to project itself as part of a coalition, Washington is claiming that they did not fly their missions alone, and that there were Arab ‘partners’ involved in the airstrikes, although it’s difficult to see how that could have actually happened. The announcement appears to be more of a move, especially since the US are withholding any details of what its Arab ‘partners’ actually did during the attacks. According to a report in the Washington Post:

“Two U.S. defense officials identified the partner nations as Saudi Arabia, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. One official described them as “full participants” in the airstrikes in Syria but did not give further details, saying it was up to those countries to fully disclose their roles.”

This latest move puts the US in a precarious position as it refused to consult Syrian authorities about US-led military operations inside their country, which is technically a blatant act of waragainst Syria. Any such unauthorised, unilateral attack inside another sovereign nation and UN member state will be viewed as a clear violation of international law, yet another uncomfortable abuse of military power by Washington. If history is any guide, it’s doubtful that the UN will take any notice of this latest unilateral military operation by Washington DC.

US Will Use ‘ISIS Airstrikes’ in Syria as Aircover for Rebels, Hit Syrian Military Targets

RT explains the lines Washington is currently crossing over:

“The Syrian government was willing to cooperate in coordinating strikes on Islamic jihadists which the country has been battling against for over three years, but US officials rejected any possibility of such cooperation. Any strikes on Syrian soil without Damascus’ consent will be considered an act of aggression, Syria has warned.”


They added, “Washington should respect the sovereignty of Syria in its attempts to deal with the Islamic State, Russia has warned repeatedly. Moscow previously expressed concern that US airstrikes may target not only the Islamic State, but also government forces loyal to President Assad.”

    Hmmm…maybe Syria is one of the few nations left NOT YET controlled through the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) in Basle, Switzerland?

    They will have their world government ‘either by conquest or consent’ and there will be no dissenters (heretics, liberals)
