Could this be the spark that ignites World War 3?

Since the Syrian conflict officially began in 2011, the fighting has been largely focused on Syrian factions vying for power. Though these factions are backed by foreign governments seeking to either remove or support Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad, such governments have avoided officially directly attacking either the Syrian “rebels” or the Syrian Army excluding the occasional “mistaken” airstrike. However, just moments ago, all that changed when Israel – which has supported Syrian “rebels” as well as the Islamic State – launched a direct attack on Syria’s government. Syrian state news agency SANA has reported that Israeli jets bombed the Mezzeh military airport just west of Syria’s capital Damascus at 12 AM local time. Reports indicate that the airport was rocked by multiple explosions and that one of the compounds of the key military facility was damaged. The airport is located just 5 kilometers from the Presidential Palace, Assad’s official residence.

The Syrian Army was quick to respond, accusing Israel’s leadership in Tel Aviv of supporting terrorism and vowing to retaliate for the “flagrant attack” of a Syrian military base. Considering the recent nature of the attack, no information regarding the death toll is available at this time. However, reports have noted that the military airport houses Syria’s elite Republican Guards and Special Forces. According to the Syrian Army, the missiles responsible for the bombing were fired from the Lake Tiberias area of Northern Israel. Various video clips depicting heavy fire and explosions have since surfaced on social media, depicting the severity of the attack.

This is the second time in two months that Israel has attacked Syrian military assets from Israeli territory. On December 7th, Israel was accused of launching missiles into Syria from the Golan Heights, a section of Syria that Israel has occupied since 1981. The target was the same airbase attacked just now, though minimal damage was suffered. However, this latest attempt marks a clear escalation on Israel’s part as the extent of the bombing was much greater.

The timing of this bombing is also peculiar and could mark an attempt by Israel and its allies to push through its regime change agenda in Syria before outgoing-President Obama leaves office. Obama, set to leave office in less than a week, has been a major proponent of removing Assad from power while also escalating the role of the US military in Syria. Unable to justify direct US military action against the Syrian government – despite a significant PR campaign to do just that – it seems that those countries that oppose Assad have chosen to make their move before Donald Trump takes office in a matter of days. Trump has repeatedly stated his opposition to regime change in Syria as well as a desire to cooperate with Russia – Syria’s chief ally – in order to defeat the Islamic State. However, this flies in the face of the plans of the neo-liberal global order, of which the current regimes of both Israel and the US are a part of. In addition, Assad’s recent victories in Aleppo and elsewhere made it clear that the US and Israel-backed factions fighting the Syrian government could soon be overrun and ineffective in destabilizing Assad’s regime. Israel, clearly aware of the situation, made the choice to act.

Now, the ultimate outcome of the fragile situation in Syria depends on the retaliation of the Syrian Army against Israel. Though Syria is justified in responding to a direct attack on its military infrastructure, any attack on Israel would promptly provoke declarations of war from both Israel and its ever-faithful ally the United States. Such declarations would, in turn, bring Russia, Iran, and ostensibly China into the fray as all three have vowed to protect Syria in the event of war erupting between Assad’s regime and the foreign powers that have long sought to destabilize its rule. In order to prevent catastrophe, people must stand up the neo-liberal global order now more than ever, demanding an end to senseless wars and refusing to support Israel’s attempts to stoke a war that could have devastating and global consequences.

  1. All is going according to Gods plan. Stupid, ignorant, humans actually believe they can thwart His plan. Time for some more popcorn.

    • What a thick f* you are… so whatever happens is God’s plan. Having stupid and ignorant humans like you is also part of God’s plan! Grow up and think for a minute on what a stupid post you made, you DH!

      • When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. These things must happen, but the end is still to come. For nation will rise up in arms against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines. These are but the beginning of birth pains….And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

  2. Israel is becoming cancerous. Since it’s inception it has taken almost all of Palestine and has now begun to attack Syria. Certainly Israel has used it’s influence to cause the US to attack and unseat Assad. I think Israel will look to have Syria cut up at which time part of it will fall into the hands of ever expanding Israel.

  3. @Anonymous/ CIA/ Whatever: Your sad attempts to stir in bullshit with a little bit of truth has really worn thin. We see right through you, so you can fuck off now. Deep state = Clinton = Bush = Obama = CIA = NSA = UN = Mossad = Rothschild Zionist bankers = NWO. USA and Israel are behind most of the deception in this world today, but the world is waking up to your deception. Your judgement is coming.
