Overnight the US, Airstrip One, and France launched missile strikes against Syria which were condemned by both the Russians and Chinese. Out of 103 missiles launched, 71 were reportedly intercepted leaving 32 to strike targets. This move comes 373 days after Trump last directed US cruise missiles towards a Syrian airbase's pussy. Syria and Russia are reporting that this attack was "absorbed" with personel having been withdrawn from the target sites days in advance while the US insists no warning of the attack was offered.
The latest reports on the situation in Syria indicate the Arleigh Burke class destroyer USS Donald Cook1 is in Syrian waters where it is being intimately buzzed by Russian warplanes. With diplomatic channels between the US and Russia dramatically reduced following British aggitation, Pantsuit just might get their war if this dance continues. Make Green, Great Again!

The people of Hungary voted for the candidate who promised to continue denying EU efforts to fill Hungary with economic migrants from diverse cultural backgrounds. As is becoming increasingly common with popular election results, Pantsuit is refusing to yield even though the leadership of most Hungarian opposition parties has resigned in acknowledgment of their failure.
The Israelis bombed a Syrian airbase in their latest effort to escalate the conflict Pantsuits refuse to abandon. Meanwhile for similar "humanitarian reasons", nearly 40 corpses have been generated on the Israeli border with Gaza as the Israelis continue defending a flimsy fence instead of constructing a Trump spec wall.
In recent weeks since the Syrian War has started heating up, US President Donald Trump has begun stating his intent to remove the United States from that conflict in the very near future. However opposition linked "white helmets" were conveniently on hand in Douma to document a chemical weapons attack which hit concealed bomb shelters housing women and children. Assad's forces had nearly gained complete control of the region at the time of the attack. This leaves the question of who had a motive very open.
On Friday, March 23, USG once more indulged its recently-acquired taste for indicting in absentia loyal soldiers of a sovereign nation — this time, nine signals-intelligence professionals residing in, and lawful citizens of, Iran. For carrying out their duties in service to their sovereign, USG saw it fit to charge (archived OCR) them in USG kangaroo court with the USG.crime of "Conspiracy to Commit Computer Intrusions".
For the role of "victims" of this "crime", USG chief prosecutor Rosenstein cast:
"… 144 U.S. universities, 176 universities across 21 foreign countries, 47 domestic and foreign private sector companies, the U.S. Department of Labor, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the State of Hawaii, the State of Indiana, the United Nations, and the United Nations Children’s Fund",
from whom the "criminals" have "stolen" "…more than 31 terabytes of academic data and intellectual property".
Interestingly, the most unforgivable USG.crime committed by the accused appears to have been a successful attempt to… re-create, in-house, "SciHub":
"The members of the conspiracy used stolen account credentials to obtain unauthorized access to victim professor accounts, which they used to steal research, and other academic data and documents, including, among other things, academic journals, theses, dissertations, and electronic books. The defendants targeted data across all fields of research and academic disciplines, including science and technology, engineering, social sciences, medical, and other professional fields. The defendants stole at least approximately 31.5 terabytes of academic data and intellectual property, which they exfiltrated to servers outside the United States that were under the control of members of the conspiracy… …Megapaper sold stolen academic resources to customers within Iran, including Iran-based public universities and institutions, and Gigapaper sold a service to customers within Iran whereby purchasing customers could use compromised university professor accounts to directly access the online library systems of particular U.S.-based and foreign universities."
I.e. roughly the same act of "terrorism" for which Aaron Swartz was hanged in New York in 2013.
It is worth noting that, while USG at one time, not so long ago, had "long hands" in Iran, these hands have recently acquired a tendency to get abruptly shortened — Iranian-style. Therefore it remains unclear how, if at all, USG intends to bring the nine "criminals" to "justice". And one may safely suppose that the only people likely to hang in connection to this "conspiracy"… are the remaining USG moles in Iran, who supplied Rosenstein and his assistant Freislers with their "evidence".

Seven years after Pantsuit Hillary Rodham Clinton threw Libya into chaos and caused the murder of Libyan leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, son Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi is attempting a presidential campaign to bring stability back to Libya. The 45 year old scion of the late Libyan leader is rumoured to be in exile successfully evading all manner of "summons" and "indictments" including an in absentia death sentence ordered by a local pantsuit puppet court (archived). Until June 2017 Saif Gaddafi had been continusly in the custody of the local militia which captured him in 2011. Said militia refused to carry out the July 2015 in absentia death sentence and released Gaddafi for reasons uncertain at present.
In recent weeks, the seven year old proxy war sustained through the pantsuit "regime change" corruption racket has shifted further from being a proxy conflict into a direct conflict occurring in a proxy location (archived). Western Pantsuits are less rigorously adhering to their usual euphemisms like "trainers" in describing special operations forces on the ground. Meanwhile Turkish forces captured the Syrian city of Afrin from US backed Kurds (archived).
Months after the US backed Iraqi occupation authority declared "victory" in Mosul:
- ISIS/ISIL/Daesh militants continue to persist in the remains of the city.
- Bodies continue littering the streets (archived)
- Like Raqqa, where victory was also declared, the former city to the extent it still exists is as a collection of post-modern ruins (archived).
- Cleaning up the rubble requires navigating tons of ordinance that failed to detonate as intended (archived).
Whether qualify of life in the city with ISIS "removed" is higher than it was under caliphate rule remains an open question.
The government of Djibouti seized the Doraleh Container Terminal from UAE based DP World. In doing so the theives governing Djibouti unilaterally breached a 30 year contract they entered into with DP World in 2006 allowing the firm to develop the port out of nothing and operate the port as part of their enterprise. Operations at the port began in 2009. (archived)
