Anime Right News (ARN) – On April 11th President Trump tweeted at Russia his intent to respond to alleged chemical gas attacks on Syrian Civilians by Syrian President Bashir Al-Assad.

On Friday, April 13th just two days later the United States, along with both France and England, launched a missile strike against the Assad regime. 

(Footage from the attack below.)

The missiles struck three locations in Syria where alleged chemical weapons facilities were located. Russia said Syria shot down 71 of the 103 missiles that were fired.

The White House decided to conduct the strike the day before the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) conducts their investigation into the alleged Chemical attacks despite different reports from state-sponsored sources. The French foreign ministry declassified an intelligence report on the alleged chemical attack stating that they assessed "with a high degree of confidence that they were carried out by the Syrian Regime." While the Russian Government blamed the United Kingdom. Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, and Canada called for a thorough investigation into the attack before any military action should take place. 

United States Secretary of Defense James Mattis stated in a press briefing following the attack that the U.S. had "...the intelligence level of confidence we needed to conduct the attack."

American and Israeli individuals with vested interest in the situation came out in full support of a military strike against the Assad-Regime starting directly after the alleged chemical attack right up to the point of the military strike by America. They were even lobbying in the media for more prolonged military involvement after President Trump stated the U.S. would pull it's troops out of Syria just days before the alleged chemical weapons attack.


Israeli National Security advisor Meir Ben Shabbat provided information and assisted in coordinating the attack with recently appointed American National Security Advisor John Bolton.


Israel provided information on the targets of the airstrike and was given a warning by the White House before the strike took place even though they were not officially listed as having any involvement in the military strike.

American National Security Advisor John Bolton has a long history of advocating for military action in Syria and an even longer history of friendly relations with the Israeli Government.

John Bolton's recent appointment to National Security Advisor demonstrates a shift in American foreign policy from anti-interventionism to a more war-hawkish approach. This, as well as the two missile strikes in Syria and the United State's current involvement through-out the middle east, is in direct contrast to President Trump's America First foreign policy. Below are some tweets from President Trump himself about military involvement in Syria.

The obvious shift in his position towards foreign intervention has not sat well with his base.


Now let us compare that with the reaction from the #NeverTrump-ers and the individuals with vested interest in the situation.

The attack on Syria comes on the same day as President Trump pardoned Dick Cheney's former Chief of Staff Scooter Libby for obstruction and perjury. Dick Cheney is currently sitting on the Strategic advisory board for an American based oil and gas company called Genie Energy with individuals like Jacob Rothschild, James Woolsey, Rupert Murdoch, and many other very prominent geopolitical players. Genie Energy is currently operating under an Israeli contract in the Golan Heights region in Syria. Israel is currently in control of that region though drilling for oil in occupied land is against international law. 

For a full story on Genie Energy, their involvement in the white house, their involvement with Israel, and their actions in the Golan Heights region of Syria click here.

In a recent letter from Saeb Erekat, Palestine's chief negotiator, to all foreign diplomats, he stated that Jason Greenblatt, who is in charge of brokering peace terms between Israel and Palestine for the Trump Administration,  "consistently repeated Israeli talking points." Mr. Greenblatt has investments in Genie Energy.

The Pentagon, during a press briefing this morning made the claim that there has been a 2000% increase in Russian trolls over the last few hours and Russia, as well as other hostile countries, have launched a full-scale disinformation campaign in regards to the alleged chemical attack and the resulting air strikes. 

This talking point is now being repeated by those with a vested interest in the situation to shut down any questioning of the official narrative. 

Now, where do we go from here? The Trump administration has stated no further escalation will occur unless another chemical attack is prevented. The parties with vested interest think that the airstrike was "...much ado about nothing" and that it just was not enough. They want more.
