Russia’s Defense Ministry says “US instructors” are training militants to stage false flag chemical attacks in south Syria. The incidents are said to be a pretext for airstrikes on Syrian government troops and infrastructure.

US training Syria militants for false flag chemical attack as basis for airstrikes – Russian MoD

“We have reliable information at our disposal that US instructors have trained a number of militant groups in the vicinity of the town of At-Tanf, to stage provocations involving chemical warfare agents in southern Syria. Early in March, the saboteur groups were deployed to the southern de-escalation zone to the city of Deraa, where the units of the so-called Free Syrian Army are stationed. They are preparing a series of chemical munitions explosions. This fact will be used to blame the government forces. The components to produce chemical munitions have been already delivered to the southern de-escalation zone under the guise of humanitarian convoys of a number of NGOs.”

He also said:

“The provocations will be used as a pretext by the United States and its allies to launch strikes on military and government infrastructure in Syria. We’re registering the signs of the preparations for the possible strikes. Strike groups of the cruise missile carriers have been formed in the east of the Mediterranean Sea, Persian Gulf and Red Sea.”




This is a list by Juan Cole, whom I never quote. But on this subject he’s correct. Cole also cheerleads for imperial wars every now and again, so beware.

Vladimir Putin has come out this week with odd comments about someone collecting biological samples of Russian citizens for unknown purposes. This leads in a particularly troubling direction.

“Let them do what they want, and we must do what we must”.

Putin Questions US Air Force DNA Collection From Ethnic Russians

“Do you know that biological material is being collected all over the country, from different ethnic groups and people living in different geographical regions of the Russian Federation? The question is – why is it being done? It’s being done purposefully and professionally. We are a kind of object of great interest.”


That clock keeps ticking closer to midnight.
