Trump Told Mattis to Nuke Syria after Fake Gas Attack


Editor’s note: Our sources have the real quote, “nuke em,’ I want to turn Damascus into a parking lot,” Trump to Secretary of Defense Mattis during April 2017 phone call.  Trump had just read Facebook posts, made by al Qaeda,  that claimed Syria had used chlorine gas in Idlib province.  Trump NEVER checks where his online information comes from, he thinks it’s all true.  “Unhinged” is an understatement.

A new book by Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward claiming to offer insight into a tumultuous Trump White House revealed the tense atmosphere during the lead-up to the US missile strikes against Syria in April 2017.

According to Woodward, following the alleged chemical attack at Khan Shaykhun on April 4, 2017, which Syrian and Russian officials slammed as a false flag attack aimed at discrediting the Syrian government, President Trump was so furious that he wanted to assassinate Syrian President Bashar Assad.

In a telephone call with Secretary of Defense James Mattis, Trump allegedly said the following, according to Woodward: “Let’s f***ing kill him! Let’s go in. Let’s kill the f***ing lot of them.”

Telling the president that he would deal with it, Mattis hung up the phone and instead allegedly told an aide: “We’re not going to do any of that. We’re going to be much more measured.”

Three days later, following internal consultations, but before the alleged chemical attack could be properly investigated, the United States launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles from destroyers in the Mediterranean Sea at the Shayrat air base, in what Washington claimed was a direct response to the Khan Shaykhun “attack.” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called the US aggression a violation of international law, with Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei describing it as a strategic mistake.

The US strike, which killed several Syrian troops and civilians, and destroyed several planes, failed to reach its objectives of crippling the Syrian Air Force, with aircraft taking off from the base’s runways just hours after the attack to strike terrorist targets.However, the attack did prompt Moscow to announce that it would take measures to help strengthen Syria’s air defenses.

On April 14, 2018, the United States and its British and French allies carried out new strikes, again over claims that the Syrian government had used chemical weapons, this time in Douma, using over 100 cruise missiles. Immediately following that attack, the Russian military reported that Syrian air defenses had shot down 71 of the 103 cruise missiles fired. Syrian media reported that half a dozen troops, and three civilians, had been injured in the attack.

In a fit of public rage on Twitter ahead of the strikes, Trump called President Assad an “animal,” and threatened a “big price to pay” for the “chemical attack,” which has since been conclusively proven to have been a false flag operation committed by the White Helmets organization.

The White House has yet to comment on the contents of Woodward’s book, or the authenticity of the quotes the journalist has ascribed to the president or General Mattis.

  1. how in the hell can woodward be mistaken…or lying or ill willed….etc….when EVERYTHING he says is on tape has a witness and made it passed the legal departments of the publisher??

    wake up here people!

    yes…this is what we have ..and i doubt woodward even got it all…since…there still are people loyal to the orange one…and talk strictly to him…out of range of any others.

  2. NO THEY HAVNT AND THEY NEVER WILL…because every word is on tape and has a witness listening in…..what you moronically are saying is what tRump put out..NOT the others

  3. Seeing though everything else in this book is a lie or misrepresentation, I wouldn’t give this any room for breath without some proof. Words are cheap, and many ardour for blood, look at the media and recent anti-trjmp books. The guy is actually doing a good job if you drug further enough and find out what he’s up to.

    • (Mis spelt a few worrds, here its fixed) Seeing though everything else in this book is a lie or misrepresentation, I wouldn’t give this any room for breath without some proof. Words are cheap, and many are out for blood, look at the media and recent anti-trump books. Trump is actually doing a good job if you dig further enough and find out what he’s up to.

  4. Nukes aren’t sacred anymore, just since 9/11evidence suggests they have been used from NYC to China, and inbetween places like Russia, Africa, Turkey, Ukraine, and Syria. Excuse me if I left your favorite nation out. Right now I just can’t remember them all.

  5. This had the same mushroom cloud as the “mini Nuke ” in the explosion in Bali back in 2002, that convinced in the minds of Australia to back up Americas war on terror.
