Germany is getting ready to attack Syria


The German daily newspaper, the Bild [1], has reported that the United States has requested the German government to participate in an air attack against Syria.

Whilst London is preparing a chemical attack under a false flag in the Syrian region of Idlib, Washington has been threatening to strike Syria for several weeks, if Syria were to turn to such weapons.

The allied operation would involve Germany, France and the United Kingdom working together.

Last week, the German Minister of Defence, Ursula von der Leyen, commissioned a study of the viable options for Germany to intervene. The meeting took place at Berlin with a representative from the Pentagon in order to bring Germany into the Western Coalition against Syria.

However, Deutsche Wirtschaftsnachrichten, another German publication, has reported that the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, had declared supporting the Russian military operation against the Jihadists, that was taking place at Idleb.
