U.S. backed in corner as Syria, Russia plan bloody assault in Idlib with chemical weapons in arsenal

breaking world news syria

(Worthy News) - With Bashar Assad and his Russian allies on the verge of victory in Syria’s civil war, the Trump administration is facing new pressure to respond forcefully and prevent a bloodbath of historic proportions — but analysts say the U.S. has virtually no good options, as seven years of muddy American policy toward Syria has left Moscow holding all the cards.

Influential lawmakers in Washington and key partners around the world in recent days have pleaded with the White House to intervene more directly in Syria and stop a looming humanitarian disaster, arguing that the human toll and the geopolitical consequences of inaction will be severe.

Mr. Assad’s forces, with crucial support from Russia and Iran, are days away from launching a brutal assault against Idlib, the last major rebel stronghold in Syria. Analysts say a victory in Idlib all but ensures Mr. Assad will prevail in the conflict, which has raged since 2011 and claimed hundreds of thousands of lives.

  1. You mean the the rebels have chemical weapons in their arsenal for a false flag..

    I hope the Russians kill them all and let God sort them out later.
    The rebels (Al Quaeda) and their state sponsors of terror (USA) could go to hell and cry all they want about being the biggest losers..

  2. I REALLY doubt this story that Russians are planning to use chemical weapons. Who put this story out? I think we're being set up for a 4th False Flag and another attempt to accuse Assad.
    Assad is the rightful leader of Syria and anyone trying to oust him will be accused of invasion...... that includes Israel.

  3. It has been very evident over the last couple of years that the gas attacks are committed by the muslim rebels, and not by the Assad forces. The fake news media always gets it wrong.
