Iran vows retaliation against alleged Israeli strike on Syrian airbase

Thelma and Louise ending

More than ever, Syria is in danger of becoming an arena for the settling of scores among world powers. Iran's official foreign reserves were estimated by the International Monetary Fund at over $130 billion early past year, but many official figures are doubtful, and Emadi said conversations with private bankers suggested the amount of easily accessible reserves might be $35-55 billion.

It is the growing pressure of the imperialist drive to war in the Middle East as part of broader geostrategic aims against Russia, China and Iran that is forcing Moscow, Ankara and Tehran to leave aside, at least for now, their differences over the future of the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad.

Iran on Tuesday threatened Israel over its alleged attack early Monday on a Syrian air base.

"There might be a narrow, self-satisfying strike, but as long as there is no bigger perspective or broader strategy for the whole conflict, it may just fuel escalation without meeting any objective". In addition, "Syria for Russia" and "Syria for Iran" are two different topics. According to Russian Federation, two Israeli warplanes attacked the T-4 base outside the city of Homs early Monday, and fired eight missiles.

Israel did not acknowledge carrying out the strike.

On Saturday, several media outlets, citing Syrian militants, accused the Syrian government of carrying out a chemical weapons attack in Douma, located some 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) northeast of the capital Damascus. NATO's European members will not do much because Turkey now houses 3.5 million Syrian refugees and if Erdogan opened that human spigot, they would flood into Europe causing economic and political turmoil. The UN has a chance to speak out now, urging for a verification of the facts in light of what Russian and Syrian inspectors are saying about the nature of the latest chemical attack: that it's false. Following the chemical attack against Douma, the Turkish Foreign Ministry blasted the Syrian regime but shied for naming and shaming Russian Federation.

Israeli forces are on high alert along the country's northern border to guard against any revenge attacks from Iran or Hizbollah.

The departure was broadcast by state television and trumpeted as yet another major military victory for Assad over his opponents.

Any intent to withdraw must be preceded by careful preparation for the days after - formulating a robust communication strategy that minimizes blame of the United States; working with Washington's European and Middle Eastern allies; and willingness and ability to confront any Iranian provocation in the region or nuclear program.

"We need hard power". It was inadvertently gassed by Assad along with all the innocent civilians.

The United States nurtured and funded Iran's entry into nuclear research in the 1950s and '60s.

"The onus of responsibility lies in Iran and we're going to continue to highlight the risks of doing business there because they haven't taken the actions that they have promised they would take", she said. Medhi Kasrraeipour from the CBI said this route is only natural since "the use of the dollar is banned for Iran and traders are literally using alternative currencies in transactions".

"Our ability for reversal in other areas will be far greater than before", he said. "Force a military showdown then call Trump to a summit to decrease tensions".

Trump blamed Syrian President Bashar Assad for the incident, adding that Russian Federation and Iran were also responsible because they support the Syrian government. This follows from a threat by Ali Akbar Velayati, top adviser to Iran's Supreme Leader Ali Khameini said that the "crime" committed in striking the airbase "will not remain without response".

"The timing of the strike isn't coincidental", he said. Trump's threats to reinstate sanctions hamper the plans of companies eager to invest in Iran, including Daimler AG, Airbus SE and Peugeot SA.

According NZIV of Rotter.net and based on Arab reports, Israel's primary target in T-4 was actually a secret Iranian Command and Control center. Israel is determined to see this through.
