The Neocons Started WW III and Russia Didn’t Even Blink

On the evening of April 13, 2018, I filed a preliminary report, listed above as President Trump announced to the nation and the world that he had ordered a 3 nation (ie UK, France and the US) missile strike on the suspected chemical weapons plants in Syria.

As of morning hours of April 14, 2018, this is a report on the present status of the situation and the immediate aftermath of reaction in relation to the attack on alleged Syrian chemical weapons. This siutaiton is fluid and will require updates. Here is what we know at this point

The Russian Ambassador to the US Responds to the Attack On Syria (via Facebook)

Here is an unredacted word-for-word copy of the Facebook post by the Russian Ambassador to the US, Anatoly Antonov regarding the attack upon Syria.

(Editors Note: Does anyone else see the irony of the Russians, of all people, using FACEBOOK to release such a sensitive report in light the current climate which exists between Zuckerberg, Facebook, Mueller, and “Russian-collusion-delusion? The Russians certainly have a flair for irony).

From Facebook:

Statement by the Ambassador of Russia to the USA Anatoly Antonov on the strikes on Syria

The worst apprehensions have come true. Our warnings have been left unheard. 

A pre-designed scenario is being implemented. Again, we are being threatened. We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences.

All responsibility for them rests with Washington, London and Paris.

Insulting the President of Russia is unacceptable and inadmissible.

The U.S. – the possessor of the biggest arsenal of chemical weapons – has no moral right to blame other countries.

 Initial Reaction to the Russian Ambassador’s Statement

The Russian rhetoric had reached a fever pitch prior to the attack. The Russians have now toned down their verbal response to almost a calm whisper. This reminds of how I was taught to handle a bully. I was taught to punch the biggest bully in the mouth, several times. That strategy works fine until the bully does not flinch or blink. The Russians have not flinched, nor are they blinking. In fact, the Russians have responded with “Is that all you got America”?

On CNN’s news show, New Day Saturday, in a report filed at 745AM (Eastern) contained the following the following excerpts:

“There is no way that President Putin is going to make that change that President Trump talked about and turn away from Assad..no indication that there is going to be any movement away from Syria and do what the Defense Secretary Mattis said regarding the turning away from Assad and engaging in peace talks in Geneva. 

…The Ministry of Defense of sort of doubling-down in their support for Assad, saying that they are considering now upgrading Syrian air defense..President Putin said that these actions destablize the situation just as Syria was beginning to recover….”

Putin has already captured the moral high-ground!

Long-time readers of this website may express that I would ever quote CNN. However, in this instance, they presented the most factual responses to the attack and in particular to the Russian response. In contrast, I was very disappointed in the Fox coverage. I though I was attending a neocon pep rally and the Russian response to this event was all but ignored. And please keep in mind, I may present a surface response by CNN to the Russian response, but only because I could verify with other sources such as the Russian Ambassador’s statement, that the report was accurate on its face. Otherwise, CNN remains the best cartoon network on television.

OH-OH, The Bully Did Not Blink!!!

Trump just punched Russia in the mouth, via Syria, and the Russians have not even blinked. If this were a tennis match, we would say that the Russians broke the Americans serve and the ball is in their court and now our leaders have the daunting task of trying to anticipate the coming Russian response.

Is That All You Got?

From Sputnik to RT, the Russians are claiming a high intercept and shoot down rate for the incoming missiles. However, the numbers are likely inflated and the results are skewed because the Russians knew where the missiles were headed because the Russians were warned away from the targeted areas by the Americans in advance of the attack, in order to prevent Russian casualties. This made it much easier to intercept incoming allied missiles, thus negating Russian claims of technical superiority.

Anticipating the Russian Response

I apologize, for if the readers were looking for some dramatic, fear-based article, that is not going to be forthcoming, at least not this morning. I spent most of the previous evening and early morning hours discussing various scenarios with some of my best sources. To a person, they are saying that it is too early to have specifically directed fears. However, I will share some of the general concerns.

That fact that the Russian Foreign Ministry told CNN that they were “doubling down” on Syrian air defense capabilities, is an indicator of what to look for in the short-term. However, some experts I have spoken with feel that it is inside of Iran that we should be paying the most attention to. I have had it mentioned three times, that if Syria has not been provided tactical battlefield nukes prior to this attack to Iran, we can almost assuredly count on that support from Russia and possibly even China. If this is the case, Israel will be pressing for an immediate strike upon their biggest threat which is Iran, which would clearly result in World War III. This remains my greatest fear at this point.

As I speak to more of my sources and compare notes with my colleagues, I will likely be offering a menu of possible Russian responses. However, we need to be mindful that we are dealing with Putin, the ultimate and simultaneous poker player and chessmaster. Putin is clearly a Sun Tzu advocate in that he believes that he can win most conflicts without engaging the enemy directly and he does so without issuing any warnings. An  example of Putin’s masterful manuvering is how he has turned all of Latin American against the US, thus making a Red Dawn scenario not only possible, but likely (The analysis can be reviewed here). However, if and when Putin decides to attack, it will be swift, deadly and decisive and very difficult to anticipate.


Before you people who think that Donald Trump is so great that he is immune to criticsm, and you come out of the woodwork proclaiming that one cannot criticze the actions of this President and still support him, I would remind you, respectfully, that you are in error.

The conservatives of this country married Donald Trump in November of 2016. And like some brides, she is not everything that we hoped that she would be. However, when contemplating the metaphorical marriage that constitutes our relationship Trump, we need to remember that he is the only girl in town, so to speak. Or, would you prefer FEMA camp housing courtesy of Hillary, or state-sponsored witchcraft? But I digress.

This reckless neocon war stunt by President Trump, which let his foreign policy be hijacked by the Deep State, was a very foolish move. Alex Jones is saying the American people are “being crapped on”. Time will tell.

There is a  silver linining which may just allow Trump to get away with this stunt. I am looking at a CNN headline right now which says:


If the Russians are talking, they are not yet shooting, at least, not yet.

Finally, as I speak to people who not immersed in the world of geopolitics, I find that they are not knowledgeable about what the exact conflict with Syria and ultimately, Iran is all about. Many of you do know, but many, as I said, do not. I am preparing a second article with the express purpose of laying out what our leaders are going to be asking you to sacrifice your children for. I think every parent and grandparent has a right to know about what is going to be demanded of you.

My advice to Trump is back away from Syria. You are winning with Korea, you have won the battle for the economy, as best as could be hoped for, you need to focus on what you can control. If you want to get out of the World War III or another Vietnam quagmaire (best case scenario), you need to get out of Syria, Mr. President. This means that you must purge all Deep State influences beginning with Sessions, Rosenstein, Wray and Mueller and that is only for starters. When you ran for office Mr. President you said we’d be winning again. Mr. President, you are getting your ass kicked in Syria. Reverse course while you still can.

Finally, if we are truly headed toward World War III, you need to heed my warning from yesterday and get prepared by reviewing this article.

    All Putin (or any country) needs to do to bring down the USA is to take delivery of 1 Billion ounces of silver costing about $17B and it is all over. The entire western banking system would collapse.

  2. Lonnie Griffis April 14, 2018 at 7:12 am

    Malarkey, No one wanted to “Start WW3” and Russia did nothing, because they had almost no assets in the area that could respond. That Russian “fleet” of “11 warships” that sailed from Syria consisted of one Frigate and 2 kilo class subs, together with a motley assortment of cargo ships, port service vessels and anti-terror defense ships (i.e. a Force Protection patrol boat). This “fleet” had zero power projection capabilities, the “Heavy Bombers” in Iran would have been only targets, and the other Russian assets are geared for ground combat against insurgents, not a Superpower. The Russian were warned of the attack, moved their forces out of the way, and were not directly targeted.
    The Russian troll sites such as Zero Hedge, Veterans Today, Veteran’s for Peace, and others claim a great Russian victory, but, as usual they are lying.

    Hello Dave Hodges, I think here is some higher political game played, this is not realy about Syria.

  4. Wb April 14, 2018 at 7:36 am

    This is troubling. But maybe in a good way. By alerting Russia and Syria, no real damage was done. Putin is a wise leader. This strike did nothing of real value. All items were moved to underground areas immune to air strikes. All that happened were Syrian and Russian air defences got experience on how to down American cruise missiles. Consider this the Russian bear scratching a few fleas. Putin doesn’t have to strike back at all. He has plenty of proxies to strike back with. He now can portray America as the bully and become the nation that sides with the oppressed. I think Putin will hit back, but in such ways that Russia won’t be blamed. Maybe we will see a huge uptick in worldwide terror attacks against Americans. With Muslims and MS-13 attacks are amateur hour, with Russia backing them they will get much more efficient and deadly.

  5. Craig Mouldey April 14, 2018 at 8:26 am

    Seeing so much confusion in the minds of so many is very disturbing. The ability to discern good and evil appears at best, cloudy. I’ve read several comments elsewhere heaping scorn on Russia for not personally taking down any missiles and not firing on U.S. assets. They are fair weather friends, afraid of the U.S. they say. Shouldn’t we be relieved that the Russian leadership is not prone to rash judgments? Nuclear missiles are not flying yet. Syria did a pretty good job on their own without having the latest and greatest. But don’t worry. This is not nearly over. The AngloZionist agenda is still in play so there is time to have a re-do. There is also the crowd who think Trump is a genius with a secret plan who will topple the evil agenda. When he ordered more military into Alphganistan and then attacked Syria without evidence a year ago, I started having my doubts about him. This is not what he promised. His stands and actions have only gotten worse. From his meeting with swamp creature politicians over gun laws where he recommended first taking guns then following due process, to now as I see recommending a judge for the ninth circuit court who is anti-first and second amendment, and his second attack on Syria based on no proof at all, can we not realize Trump is not what he pretended to be? I can understand the desperation of the people hoping finally they had found the one to save the country. But his actions do not match his words. In the worst case, the tweeter in chief has been a deep state, globalist from the beginning, (in fact, Trump has said he is a globalist) or somebody has really bad dirt on him and he is compromised. In that case, it matters not because he has not the strength of character to face and confess his wrongs for the sake of the country and the world. Whenever the AZ powers want something to happen, the can simply extort the tweeter to do their bidding. Trump now is only a figurehead and puppet.

  6. jeff spinner April 14, 2018 at 8:39 am

    There’s a reason why there’s something called “divorce.” I was separated from my “wife” Trump a year ago after he tried to shoot (sic) 60 missiles into Syria, one a dud, over twenty shot down, some others missed and hit civilian towns, a few hit an airbase and stopped it from operating for 24 hrs. This last attack, based on ANOTHER false flag, with evidence the UK IC pressured their “white helmets” to hurry up and carry out the false flag, is my divorce.

    The Deplorables NEVER needed Trump. It was our last test to satisfy ourselves that working within this now proven absolutely corrupted and unsaveable system is a fool’s errand.

    So now the Deplorables know what needs to be done, and have always been prepared to do so, since at least as far back as if they had dared to coronate Hillary and just steal the elections infront of everyone’s noses. Trump now demonstrates he was the fallback position, the fake ally, to co-opt a 2nd war of Independence that would have started sooner. No different than Newt Gingrich was the co-opter of the TEA Party movement. We’ve learned from that.

    So be it.

    Hi Dave,
    Good article and report but I disagree strongly with you on one point….I’d say that WE, well our neocon deep state military industrial complex run country are the BIG BULLY on the block, not the Russians at all. They are being the civil and righteous ones. Right now I m so ashamed of my country!!!

  8. Tzsarra April 14, 2018 at 9:54 am

    Have you heard of http://www.whatdoesitmean.com

    Wondering if the latest article has any credibility in light of the things you’ve been warning about.

  9. Dan B April 14, 2018 at 10:07 am

    Deep State wins again. On the big important issues, the international issues, the globalists always get their way in the end; more chaos, more war, more division. Setting up the world for their false messiah that will subdue the whole world. Out of this chaos will come a false world peace, that will taste like honey in the mouth but 42 months later turn bitter in the stomach. All part of God’s plan and judgement on this world.

  10. JP April 14, 2018 at 10:21 am

    In my humble opinion, this is not about oil, or the deep state, etc. This is spiritual and it is about regaining the true borders of Israel. Soon we will see a large part of Syria, Jordan, Gaza, and the West Bank under Israeli control. But it is all just a preview to the big one. The Most High is separating the nations to fulfill His promise to blot out Amalek, which is modern day China. This little spat in Syria is just to separate the sheep from the goats on a nation scale. The SCO may get the first couple victories, but in the end, the Most High is coming back to finish His promise and will destroy the two-hundred million man army.

  11. Francis Colton Conger April 14, 2018 at 10:53 am

    This is a part of the choreography of the “end times” spoken about very clearly in Daniel 7 whose modern fulfillment is being played out for all of us. Daniel 7 speaks of 4 beasts that come out of the calamitous sea of mankind. The first being the “lion” who has the “wings of an eagle”, and could this be anything other than the “nation state” system ruled by the U.K./U.S. dual world power. The second beast is the “bear”, which is clearly Russia which, “raises up on one side” when provoked by the first beast. The bear has 3 ribs in its mouth and is encouraged to “eat much flesh”. The bear is the mechanism which “plucks the wings” from the Lion that has the wings of an eagle. The U.K. is the lion and the U.S. provides the wings, but the wings of the U.S. prove inferior to the defensive and offensive capabilities of the bear. I personally think that the deep stater’s have treasonously given the “bear” the secrets of the U.S. military which will “pluck its wings” as portrayed in Daniel 7. The leopard of Daniel 7 represent the “BRICS” political and financial system headed by India, China, Russia, Brazil etc.. This national system will take over as Daniel 7 says that it will “receive authority to rule” as seen in Daniel 7:6—-” “After this I kept watching, and look! another beast, like a leopard,j but on its back it had four wings like those of a bird. And the beast had four heads,k and it was given authority to rule.” This beast is simply a placeholder during the “great tribulation” that will be initiated by the world powers in some sort of Nuclear Third World War and will end with a proclamation by the 4th beast of Daniel 7 and the 10 Kings of Revelation 17. This is a time to turn to Jehovah God through his Son Jesus Christ in faith and in love. That is the only recipe for salvation. No other nation can guarantee your safety or salvation. They may promise this, but they can not and will not deliver it. In the end, all these beasts will be destroyed by the Kingdom of God as seen also in Daniel 7 where it shows us in the statement “23 “This is what he said: ‘As for the fourth beast, there is a fourth kingdom that will come to be on the earth. It will be different from all the other kingdoms, and it will devour all the earth and will trample it down and crush it.q 24 As for the ten horns, ten kings will rise up out of that kingdom; and still another one will rise up after them, and he will be different from the first ones, and he will humiliate three kings.r 25 He will speak words against the Most High,s and he will continually harass the holy ones of the Supreme One. He will intend to change times and law, and they will be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time.*t 26 But the Court sat, and they took away his rulership, in order to annihilate him and to destroy him completely.u
    27 “‘And the kingdom and the rulership and the grandeur of the kingdoms under all the heavens were given to the people who are the holy ones of the Supreme One.v Their kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,w and all rulerships will serve and obey them.’” That is mankind’s only true hope—-the Kingdom of God by Christ.

    I pray that our commander in chief has your article before him and heads its warning. Can you help in the Holy Spirit…..Have mercy if this is in your divine will of turning the presidents heart where you will.? Amen

  13. Anthony Gentile April 14, 2018 at 12:01 pm

    Info wars deals in fear, although they do have some good journalism. They claimed the missiles killed some Russian Soldiers. Offered up no pics. Don’t get caught up in this, without prove it’s hearsay.

  14. John Smith April 14, 2018 at 12:22 pm

    Could you please fix the broken link in the final sentence of the above article?

    That last sentence reads: “Finally, if we are truly headed toward World War III, you need to heed my warning from yesterday and get prepared by reviewing this article.” The word “article” is in blue, making it look like there is a hyperlink there that you can click on that will take you to the article you are referring to. But there’s no link there.

    Could you please fix this and add the link? Or, could you please reply to this comment by providing a link to the article you were referring to?

    Thanks very much.

  15. Weary of it all April 14, 2018 at 4:02 pm


    You had a story a while back regarding Wal-Marts in Red States closing down and being converted into FEMA camps.

    If you would, please post the link in reply to my comment.

    Thank you for the work you do in helping us keep abreast of things in these most interesting of times.

  16. mews April 14, 2018 at 5:20 pm

    But Dave, Trump depends on the military to protect his life. So he has to do their bidding and if they want war we will get war.

  17. Denver v Johnson April 15, 2018 at 4:38 am

    IT WAS SAID THAT RONALD REAGAN WAS going to bring the end of the world
    AND God the Father
    and you will be fine
    have a very blessed day I’m not losing no sleep over this I can barely sleep AS IS

  18. Claudia Kabat April 15, 2018 at 6:35 am

    Why has a media blackout happened on the Israeli strikes on Iran assets in Syria yesterday afternoon. They were reported in Alt. Media but not MSM. Reports say 20 Iranian officers were killed. What r U hearing Dave?

  19. Kurt April 15, 2018 at 9:19 am

    RE: “Is that all you got America”? The US had promised days of attacks but stopped after only an hour where Syrian forces with “obsolete” missiles eliminated most of the incomings. The Syrians are partying. JimStone’s hypothesis: Could Russia have told of a 7000 MPH hypersonic missile going into the center of the U.S. fleet with a megaton warhead? Russia didn’t need to do anything else. Thanks @jeff_spinner for the link: http://thesaker.is/chief-of-the-main-operational-directorate-of-the-russian-general-staff-colonel-general-sergei-rudskoy-holds-briefing-for-mass-media/

  20. Toni April 15, 2018 at 9:47 am

    You keep poking a bear and eventually they will attack. The US has been poking Russia for 6 or 7 years.

  21. Hiram Abiff April 15, 2018 at 9:52 am

    Ryan Dawson has a 12 minute video that explains this mess, and what / who is REALLY behind it!
    He also has a video titled ‘Trump’s Ball and Chain’ available.

    This is a very accurate description as to who is really running the political affairs in and out of the White House.

    I doubt that anything will truly change in DC and America at this point in time and history. We still have the NDAA (the Stalinist Law brought about by Obama), Guantanamo is still open while violating International Law (the argument here is that US Constitutional Protections are not guaranteed outside of the US, BUT: since the US has a 99 year lease on the Cuban property, the US Laws under Lease Agreement still applies when such is used by the US). & remember 9 years ago when Obama signed the supposed ‘closing of Guantanamo’ on TV? That was nothing but pure theatre; the Concentration Camp remained open!

    The problem here is the Zionist control of America and the World Banking System, with Isreal pimping the American Taxpayer for billions of dollars, while American Veterans and homeless people sleep on the sidewalks of LA in tents, a scene played out in many cities!

    See Mike Rivero’s You-Tube video titled ‘All Wars Are Banker’s Wars’, which explains how the Zionist System manipulates, controls, and exploits the Global Financial System according to the rules of the Talmud.

    Also, check out Snordster’s You-Tube presentations such as ”Israel Targets War Vets’, ‘Shooter’, ‘Monster”, ‘Slave’, ‘We’ll Kill The Dollar’, and ‘The Black Swan is On The Wing’.

    Research Holodomor and who caused and was responsible for the same! Go to Holodomorinfo.com and read about the ‘Jewish’ Zionist Ethnic Cleansing of Russia, Ukraine and Eastern Europe!

    Alex Jone’s rant of late reflects the feelings and disappointment of Trump supporters. Once you see the Zionist Mafiaso in New York real estate, banking and stock markets, and how they have manipulated the now First Family, then you will see the destructive problems that America has had over the last 100 years!

    Putin removed the Zionists and Oligarchs from Russian business, banking, government and society,, He has brought Russia back from the brink of Talmudic destruction that the Zionists have perpetrated upon the world,

    The Zionist elements then hide behind the call of ‘anti-semitism’, and exploit the overlaid guilt of the Konzentration Kamps Holocaust, and religious persecutions, and rely on such organizations such as the Zionist-run SPLC, AIPAC, ADL and even the Protestant Churches who support Israel despite the immense International Crimes that such has committed upon the world, and which refuses to repair, but instead blames it’s actions on the fault of others.

    There is a BIG difference between Torah Jews and Talmudic Zionists, who, BTW, have hijacked the Jewish Religion.
    David Icke can explain that to the audience at his website!

    How quickly the Zionist forget about the suffering in the Warsaw Ghetto and the horror of the Death Camps when, they themselves, ahve transformed Gaza into exactly that!

  22. Lou Cypher April 15, 2018 at 2:33 pm

    The Russians are frozen with fear. They are not your granddaddy’s Russians.

  23. Vietkonggook April 15, 2018 at 3:18 pm

    Be prepared for NDAA to be acivated once COG takes over. This whole thing could be a pretext to disarming the American citizenry the reason why all the uptick in false flags in the last five months (Sutherland Spring, Parkland, etc). Anything is possible so stay frosty.

  24. mary April 15, 2018 at 3:30 pm

    I really don’t get it. The double standards and hypocrisy of U.S. neocons. It was reported about a year ago that the US armed forces were fighting in Syria against ISIS. Maybe that was the ISIS segment that had strayed from the plantation. Otherwise the rest of that family is allowed to carry on.

  25. Sharon Maree April 16, 2018 at 5:25 am

    There is a lot more that goes on behind the scenes. Some believe they have ‘proof’ of right or wrongdoing just because ‘it is written somewhere’. If you can show the people that you have actual facts, then put it forward but to judge someone just by what you read is not helping anyone. The Lord is a Man of war and has stated that ‘in righteousness He will make war’. The Lord allowed Trump to do that, for His Own reasons..He has his Hands on EVERYTHING so ask yourself..’Are you being blasphemous by condemning something that you have no understanding of’…condemning something that God wanted to happen because it is part of His Plan? The Old Testament is full of war, war that the Lord Himself, assisted those He loved and instructed them in battle. There are people that try and condemn Him for that as they don’t have understanding. If they knew who, or should I say ‘what’ He was at Times fighting against, they would hang their heads in shame and instead praise Him for doing so. Then just ask yourself one more thing…’If you heard your neighbour beating/torturing their children, would you just sit and ignore it’?
