"We Successfully Hit Every Target": Highlights From Pentagon Press Briefing On Syria Airstrikes

On Saturday morning, Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White and Marine Lt. General Kenneth McKenzie held a press conference updating the public on the key overnight developments in Syria.

Here are the highlights from the presser:

  • White: "This operation does not represent a change in US policy or an attempt to dispose the Syrian regime."
  • White: "We took action and what happens next is the decision of Assad."
  • McKenzie: "We successfully hit every target"
  • McKenzie: "Last night's strikes were precise, overwhelming, and effective. The strikes overwhelemed the Syrian air defense system"
  • McKenzie: "A total of 105 weapons were deployed against three targets. Targets hit were chlorine, sarin gas research facilities"
  • McKenzie:"Three building were destroyed in Damascus"
  • McKenzie: "No coordination, no agreement with the Russians before the strike."
  • McKenzie: "There was no indication Russia air defense systems were deployed"
  • McKenzie: "None of our aircraft or missiles involved in this operation were successfully engaged by Syrian air defenses and we have no indication that Russian air defense systems were deployed ... all our aircraft safely returned to their bases"
  • McKenzie: "Air and naval platforms were used to launch strikes"
  • McKenzie: "We accomplished our military objective without material interference from Syria"
  • McKenzie: "77 missiles destroyed the Barzah Research and Development Center. It does not exist anymore. This will set the Syrian CW program by years."
  • McKenzie: "22 missiles hit the Him Shinshar Chemical Weapons Storage Site. All coalition forces were involved in kinetic strikes"
  • McKenzie: "7 missiles were employed against a third target"
  • McKenzie: "Two USAF B-1 lancer bombers launched 19 missiles."
  • McKenzie: "Syria fired 40 surface to air missiles into the air after strike on ballistic (unguided trajectory) to no effect....after the 105 US and allied missiles had already landed."
  • McKenzie: "We have not seen any military response from actors within Syria since the strikes"
  • McKenzie: "We positioned defensive counter-air assets around Syria and these are still active."
  • McKenzie: "As of now, we are not aware of any civilian casualties following the strikes"

 

Also of note: McKenzie confirms JASSM stealthy cruise missiles used in this morning’s strike in Syria. It’s the first known time they’ve been used in combat.

This latest chemical attack in Syria is yet another FALSE FLAG.

Just like all the previous chemical attacks in Syria were FALSE FLAG events.

Just like the Skripal "chemical attack" in Britain was a FALSE FLAG event.

Trump is a Jew (so is Theresa May, by the way).

It seems the Jews want war,.... yet again.

If you wish to see how real wars are conducted, read:

Proof that Adolf Hitler was a double agent.

http://www.preearth.net/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=1174

It seems pretty weird when you first read it, but its clearly true.

------------------------------------------------

Does anyone actually think a single missile was fired?

OR,... is it all massively coordinated false news.

HAS ANYONE ACTUALLY SEEN VIDEO OF THE DAMAGE THAT THESE MISSILES CAUSED?

The 30 or 40 missiles that got through should have left a few holes here and there.

Unless, of course, it is all BS.

It is 2 PM in Damascus; the video clips should have been up-loaded hours ago.

But there don't seem to be any.

"That's not the way the world really works anymore. We (Jews) are an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality (by outright lies)... We're history's actors (the creators of huge wars)... and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do (and get away with)."

I haven't seen such faggotry  this illegal and immoral since the Oregon State Police and FBI murdered LaVoy Finnicum.  Pounding their chests over beating up a minor regional military power based on an obvious false flag lie. 

Syria's real crime?  Trying and succeeding at tossing mercenary terrorist invaders out of their country.

Let's take it easy on OJ. He went for the symbolic act to back up his tweet. Most likely this was to pacify jews who wanted blood, with Bolton doing their bidding.

They chose the option that didn't hit anything military and stayed well away from pissing off the Russians. Which shows that their mouths are bigger than their balls.... I can see OJ with a hanky tied around his head, a string vest, jeans hanging down his ass, threatening to "pop a cap" in somebody's ass, then running away when he hears sirens.

 

Good ol' OJ - Personally, I think he's done well this week. Give the fucker a break, he only "works" 3 hrs a day.... there's still a chance he comes good. It all hinges on how he handles Iran.... can he stop the jews from invading Iran?

"Whatever happened, it's pretty clear that tomahawks are now considered obsolete or they wouldn't be using all of them up."

Sometimes I think the MIC has developed a direct cash kickback to the political crazies in DC for every single bomb and missile used. Or perhaps its a dopamine stimulating chip implant.

Yes, the best before dates would be in play. I think target practice and testing new features is another unpublicized military objective.

It is interesting to note that Americans report that the Russian defenses did not seem to come into play. The Russians are cool players and who knows what of their best tricks are still no revealed.

I really hate hearing the lies and Fake Narratives but so far it looks like military withdrawal rather than war is the US policy. This was not a prepare for war strike.

In 5D chess there is what is known in the 2D version as a "pawn sacrifice"

OK so now all these "Chemical Weapons" facilities in Syria have been destroyed (Despite The OPCW having already certified Syria to be free of Chemical Weapons) can we now get an independent team to inspect these destroyed sites for traces of CW's? If indeed CW's were being manufactured or stored there, surely there must be proof now on the ground. I'm not holding my breath.

And of all the signatories to the various International Treaties to eliminate stockpiles of CW's, only ONE country has not yet done so: The US. Apparently they don't have enough money to do so. Yeah, right...

Orwellian terminology pisses me off.

All coalition forces were involved in kinetic strikes"

Kinetic is supposed to mean: an inert projectile, where the destructive force comes from the kinetic energy of the projectile impacting at very high velocities.

What the general meant was: offensive military strikes. Where offensive means the initiation of force; not defensive.

Their communication is intended to confuse by using some goofy term with a meaning different than the term's original meaning.

If by 'OJ' you are referring to Trump then you are way off base. Over and over again he has proven to be a Zio-Nazi tool.  Populists had some hope in him but he is at best just a fraud with no real power.  The decent common people of the world have to unite and take control of their nations even if they have to bleed in the process.

Exactly. Nobody would ever , ever fire 100 tomahawks to hit just three different targets!

 

Obviously, they wanted to hit dozens of targets. The question is: did they destroy them but do not want to brag about it since such a widespread attack can't be justified with the chemical weapons containment narrative. And syria Russia woulkd say nothing because it would display the uselessness of their air defenses?

Or did the syrians and Russians indeed manage to intercept or divert 70 % of those missiles? Which is why the Us only talks of three targets.

I wish some of these useless reporters would ever ask the clowns in D.C., how and why on earth they fired 100 missiles if they wanted to hit but three targets. I am not holding my breath.

 "No coordination, no agreement with the Russians before the strike."

<cough> <cough> bullshit <cough>

Another fake response to another fake chemical attack, with the Russians (and by proxy Syria) warned in advance, signifying -- despite all the shrieking and diaper loads from the emotionally incontinent -- nothing... except for the fact that the political environment is a totally deranged freak show, and evidently calls for these sorts of theatrics.  From the brain dead, bovine lower orders, to a psychopathic, traitorous, war-loving, detached from reality political class, to the idiotic media bobble-heads and sycophants.

You're wrong, psychobilly.  What they are doing is getting everyone used to the idea of invading another country at will using whatever means and weapons they so desire.  One time they're going to do something like this, and because they exist in a land of wishful thinking, they really will start a conflagration...with people who live by the enlightened philosophy of "an eye for an eye."

1 or 2 missiles and that would be the case.

 

Idiots and keyboard military and munitions experts holding Internet Degrees in NBC warfare though, just "KNOW!" that "...you would NEVER fire 20 or 70 missiles to hit ONE target!..."

 

Stupid clueless fucks would no doubt be wailing if in fact only 3 missiles were sent to each target, damaging but not completely obliterating it, and allowing the contents to escape into the wild. Then they'd be belching "YOU HAD TO KNOW THAT 3 MISSILES WOULDN'T DO THE JOB!"

" How much does a Tomahawk cost? 106 missiles I'm guessing upwards of $50 million dollars all for this stupid circus? Winning! Or US tax payers, - losing. "

 

It gets even more retarded than that... If they took out all the chemical facilities, they destroyed their own ability to engineer false flags in the future like these facilities were to used to engineer the last false flag...

 

I mean ~ How many times can you kill Bin Laden, supposedly dump him in the ocean & brag about it?

 

I can just picture some 'Simple Jack' looking MF in Langley puzzling "Why didn't I think about that before?" and then getting on the blower to his twin brother mosley to spin it for him"...
