The FOX News piece shows yet more evidence of the Blair-Murdoch split, which must signify a schism at the highest levels. Was their fall-out initially over Wendi Deng? Blair now wants his false flag and war trickery to play out as he is famous for. Murdoch wants to put a spanner in the works. Who else sides with Murdoch – presumably wishing to stop WW3 breaking out over total Blair-style nonsense?
Three reports from ‘Jim Stone’ .
Moscow’s tone towards Israel turned hostile on Monday, April 9, after its claim that the IDF conducted an air strike on the Syrian T-4 airbase that morning. This claim was in itself a departure from the Kremlin’s longstanding line of letting Israel’s military operations pass without comment. Stepping away from this custom, the Russian Defense Ministry reported that two Israeli F-15 fighter jets carried out a guided missile air strike on the T-4 air base in Homs from Lebanese air space. Syria was said to have shot down 5 out of the 8 missiles fired, while three landed in the western part of the base. The Moscow statement stressed: “There were no Russian advisers among those injured” – 14 in all, according to some sources.
It was next announced that the Russian defense and foreign ministries asked their Israeli counterparts to provide “explanations” for air strikes on a “Syrian military facility.” And then, Russian foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told reporters that the “air strike carried out on Sunday on a Syrian air base was a dangerous development.” A few hours later, the Russian Foreign Ministry criticized what it described as Israel’s “indiscriminate use of force against the civilian population” in the Gaza Strip, calling it “unacceptable.”
DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources say that Moscow’s ire was prompted by five causes and more hostile steps against Israel may be coming:
Israel’s reported military strike in Syria hit President Vladimir Putin at a highly vulnerable moment, when the US and its Western allies were holding him directly accountable for chemical weapons attacks in Syria and the United Kingdom. Putin never imagined that the nerve agent attack on the former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter would be tied in with allegations that the Russian-backed Assad regime was using poison gas against Syrian civilians in Douma near Damascus.
The Russian president suspects that Israel struck the T-4 airbase, a shared Syrian-Russian-Iranian air facility, as an advance foray on behalf of the US for testing Moscow’s reaction to a larger operation. He is therefore pushing back strongly against the Israeli attack to ward off a US sequel.
My comment: That’s a pretty balanced report for Debka. And it strongly supports a comment I made earlier (down this page a ways) where I said : “A David Hogg style “wag the dog” was launched with actors and (possibly) old footage from other events, or old footage from previous drills, so the media could publish reports of gassed babies. Only, nothing happened at all.
It was all staged by Israel, to hopefully get a knee jerk reaction out of America before any facts were checked. Pumped by the presence of Trump’s new war hawk Bolton, Israel had a giddy fit and fired a few missiles at an Iranian supported base in Syria, fully expecting a bamboozled Trump to go along with it and perhaps follow up.
I am really surprised Debka said something similar.
PRESS TV: Fox News Host calls gas attack a false flag

Syrian chemical weapons attack was false flag operation, Fox News host suggests
Tue Apr 10, 2018 02:14PMFox News host Tucker Carlson has suggested that the recent suspected chemical weapons attack in Syria was a false flag operation and that the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was not responsible for it.
In his current affairs program broadcast on Monday night, Carlson slammed the American media pundits and politicians who are calling for a war against Syria over the alleged attack near the capital Damascus on Saturday.
The attack in the militant-held town of Douma in the Eastern Ghouta region left dozens dead and drew international condemnation from various countries and international bodies. The Assad government strongly rejected the allegation of using chemical munitions.
“The push to war in Syria by the way has united politicians from both sides, ” Carlson said in his introductory remarks.
“Lindsey Graham and Howard Dean typically agree on very little, not much at all. But today both are calling for war in Syria, ” he added.
“Graham is demanding massive attacks on the Syrian military. Dean is even going further than that. On Twitter, he called the president ‘a wimp’ for merely sending thousands of troops and launching tens of bombs at Syria, ” he said.
“That’s not enough for Howard Dean, who, if you may remember, once ran for the president as a peace candidate. Tonight he wants total war in Syria, ” the commentator stated.
Carlson said that Americans “should be skeptical to this, starting with the poison gas itself.”
â€œAll the geniuses tell us Assad killed those children. But do they really know that?â€ he asked. â€œOf course, they donâ€™t really know that. They are making it up. They have no real idea what happened.â€
“How it would benefit Assad using chlorine gas last weekend? Well, it wouldn’t. Assad’s forces have been winning the war in Syria. The [Trump] administration just announced to pull American troops out of Syria, having vanquished ISIS [Daesh]. That’s good news for Assad. And the only thing he could do to reverse it and hurt himself would be to use the poison gas against children, ” he added.
“Well, he did it anyway, they tell us. He’s that evil. Please keep in mind, this is the same story they told us last April. Remember that? It was almost exactly a year ago, ” the analyst noted.
“The new administration announced it is no longer seeking to depose Assad from power, the regime change is no longer a policy. So the usual war hawks in Washington started yelping and went berserk. And days later Assad supposedly used sarin gas against civilians in syria. There was a video. We bombed the Syrian airbase in response to that, ” he continued.

My comment: You know it is bad when any American MSM outlet sounds like alt media!
It looks like Syria may be a “go”
Really bad news. Yesterday I figured nothing would be done after Russia and Iran exposed the gas attack as a hoax, but with Trump cancelling all non essential events, including a diplomatic summit in South America so he can focus on Syria, obviously Syria is not off the table. Additionally, Russia has started jamming GPS and military communications in Syria. That is a significant escalation. Tass has reported that if the U.S. strikes Syria, Russia will respond with an equal strike against the U.S., and has expanded the offer to all political actions and anything else the U.S. might try to pull. Russia is not playing ball this time, because they know the gas attack was fake and they are not going to allow a lie to be rammed down anyone’s throat, especially with military force.
This time around it is all bigger than the other times, it probably would be best if Trump backed off. Here’s Russia’s attitude this time around, from Tass:
“Russia will take all political, diplomatic and military retaliatory measures if necessary should the United States deliver a strike on Syria, Russian State Duma (lower house of parliament) Defense Committee Chairman and former Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Airborne Troops Vladimir Shamanov said on Tuesday.
“The politics of double standards have hit rock bottom. And here the United Russia party conscientiously states that all political, diplomatic and military measures if necessary will be taken. No illegal action will remain unanswered, ” Shamanov vowed at a plenary meeting of the State Duma.
The senior MP was indignant over US President Donald Trump’s statement about Washington’s response within 48 hours, saying: “They should not pin their hopes on their naval task forces and their deceptions. We are a sovereign country and we have allies and guarantors for those events taking place in Syria. We won’t let the Americans hammer nails on someone else’s anvil.”
My comment: That’s more than rhetoric.
TAP – The next Blair/Israeli game could be another Pearl Harbour – sinking an American ship and blaming it on Syria or Russia. Or can the Murdoch tendency stop these prompts towards war by exposing them for what they are -false events? Everyone fell for Pearl Harbour in 1942. Or nearly everyone. Would a majority now see through the nonsesne of military false flag attacks? Especially the US navy which should be watching Israeli planes the hardest. They could add on Russian insignia and fire a ship missile, blaming Russia.
