"WASHINGTON — The U.S. now has blood and urine samples from last Saturday's deadly attack in Syria that have tested positive for chemical weapons, according to two U.S. officials familiar with the intelligence."

Norwegian Media used this as a source, though it lacks a source itself.

So your previous president was a cock too (and the three before him come to think of it).

We discussed this a while back upthread.  It isn't clear at this time how long the US was involved in the Syrian Civil War.  There were some links posted that showed that the US was involved with opposition groups long before the war, but it wasn't clear whether that was usual State Department bullshit or whether the good old US government has been steering the entire region towards war for the past fifteen or so years, or whether things just went pear-shaped and the geniuses said "hey, you know those assholes who killed three thousand or so Americans at the beginning of this millennium?  Let's give them missiles!"

The analysis of available data on the alleged chemical attack by the Bellingcat website:

 

https://www.bellingcat.com/news/mena/2018/04/11/open-source-survey-alleged-chemical-attacks-douma-7th-april-2018/

 

Didn't took the time to go through it in details yet, but it might interest somebody here.

Also bear in mind that the article is two days old, I don't know if new evidence have surfaced since then.

Well at least he is presenting the raw data on which he built his reasoning.

Since the only expertise yet has been done by Russia, an ally of Assad, and all they said was basically akin to "Nothing to see here" after going in and out for now I find it reasonable to consider all hypothesis for now.

   Bellincrap tries to assembly "raw" data into narrative. The real deal is that SAA can level towns and villages and kill 100s of people with MRLS strikes over cities and there will be no "outrage" and other theatrical crap like what currently is happening over this event.

Not saying the contrary.

Just saying that since all the info we have atm comes from the belligerents it has to be taken with a pinch of salt, especially when the two versions are so different.

   I have my own version, with blackjack and hookers - in reality, outside of theatrical perfomances of politicains this chemical attack or "chemical attack" doesn't matter as attack didn't killed\"killed" more than any other serious weapon system killed in Syria, it didn't changed anything from military POV, it didn't brought down human rights or dignity more than artillery did in Eastern Ghouta. Now we have this theater of hollowbodied bastards the real event doesn't matter for them either. It is simulacrum that exist outside of an actual event.

Hold on US, E-Stonia is coming to help you!

Quote

Estonia will send 3 boats to the coast of Syria to help the US Navy
   Immediately three border boats will be send by Estonia to the coast of Syria in the Mediterranean Sea to help the navies of the US and other NATO countries. This was stated by the Commander-in-Chief of the Estonian Armed Forces, General Riho Terras.
   "We feel that today, more than ever, NATO allies need our support. We sent the entire Estonian navy to the shores of Syria to fight dictator Assad. For us it is very important. We do not want his henchmen to spray mustard over Tallinn or Kohtla-Jarve in the future," the general said.

The governments of these baltic countries remind me of those countries that aligned themselves with  Nazi Germany during WW2. They seem to sell themselves to anyone just to get revenge.  I wonder if these governments (butthurt troublemakers)will still be so enthusiastic and confrontational if push comes to shove.

I think it has little to do with revenge and more to do with showing acts of good faith toward the US and NATO so that they will help them against neighboring Russia, which they identify as a threat, if necessary.

Fake news, there's no mention of it on the estonian beeb or janes

This was a joke. I though that words "3 boats" and "entire Estonia  fleet" we're obvious indicators. Funny that people took it seriously.

Actually it's very close to 3 if I trust wikipedia^^

So if as much as one ship was decommissioned, or unavailable since the last wiki update, the "3 boats is the entire Estonian navy" would had been true.

      Greetings, I have been studying in the battle of Afrin since it started. Yet I still lack some information that can clearly analyse the opposite plan, war progress and order of battle of both side (Turkey army clear but YPG isn’t).
       
      I am spectacular interested in the process of the battle as it revealed the true strength of the 2nd largest NATO army. Also, the performance of YPG/YPJ militant against the regular modern army is meaningful to modern warfare study too.
       
      Hence, any kind man can help me on this field or even just give out a reading list?

      Hello, my friends and Kharkovites, take a sit and be ready for your brains to start to work - we are going to tell you a terrible secret of how to tell apart Soviet tanks that actually works like GLORIOUS T-80 and The Mighty T-72 from Kharkovites attempt to make a tank - the T-64. Many of capitalists Westerners have hard time understanding what tank is in front of them, even when they know smart words like "Kontakt-5" ERA. Ignoramus westerners!
       
       
         Because you are all were raised in several hundreds years old capitalism system all of you are blind consumer dummies, that need big noisy labels and shiny colorful things to be attached to product X to be sold to your ignorant heads and wallets, thats why we will need to start with basics. BASICS, DA? First - how to identify to which tank "family" particular MBT belongs to - to T-64 tree, or T-72 line, or Superior T-80 development project, vehicles that don't have big APPLE logo on them for you to understand what is in front of you. And how you can do it in your home without access to your local commie tank nerd? 
       
       
         Easy! Use this Putin approved guide "How to tell appart different families of Soviet and Russian tanks from each other using simple and easy to spot external features in 4 steps: a guide for ignorant western journalists and chairborn generals to not suck in their in-depth discussions on the Internet".
       
       
       
      Chapter 1: Where to look, what to see.
       
      T-64 - The Ugly Kharkovite tank that doesn't work 
       
         We will begin with T-64, a Kharkovite attempt to make a tank, which was so successful that Ural started to work on their replacement for T-64 known as T-72. Forget about different models of T-64, let's see what is similar between all of them.
       
       
       

       
       
         
       
       
      T-72 - the Mighty weapon of Workers and Peasants to smash westerners
       
         Unlike tank look-alike, made by Kharkovites mad mans, T-72 is true combat tank to fight with forces of evil like radical moderate barbarians and westerners. Thats why we need to learn how identify it from T-64 and you should remember it's frightening lines!
       

       
       
       
      The GLORIOUS T-80 - a Weapon to Destroy and Conquer bourgeois countries and shatter westerners army
       
         And now we are looking at the Pride of Party and Soviet army, a true tank to spearhead attacks on decadent westerners, a tank that will destroy countries by sucking their military budgets and dispersing their armies in vortex of air, left from high-speed charge by the GLORIOUS T-80!

      T-14 ARMATA 
      (edited)
              This thread is about glorious russian MBT T-14, known as "Armada", "T-95", "black eagle", "T-99" and other stupid Western names given to Object 148 (T-14 in some recent documents). Here is number of images connected to that vehicle.
       

      Official model of unknown "artillery vehicle". Yeah, Putin, we know that this is T-14. Note Gatling gun on turret right side.
       
      Artist impression of T-14 based on known model, by Fyodor Podporin. 
       

      T-14 will use Relikt ERA, which is considerable improvement over Kontakt-5 in resisting to tandem HEAT warheads and EFPs.

       
      Side skirts would be thicker on a real vehicle, i think. Relikt have AFAIK bigger size than Kontakt-5 ERA build-in blocks.

       
       
       
       
       
      Whole album with renders: 
      http://imgur.com/a/8Tn9b
       
      Video of same render from same artist:

       
       
            People expect that tank would have turret weapon system like what you see on the BMP-3 "Bakhcha-U" turret - a lot of weapons in one turret for one gunner to work with. T-14 is rumored to be equipped with 30 (or even 57) mm autocannon, 4-6 barrel gatling type MG/HMG, new 125 (2A82) or even 152 mm (2A83) smoothbore cannons. Turret is unmanned, crew of 3 would be located in frontal part of hull, behind very serious frontal armor inside of compartment, well protected from all directions. Cannon would be loaded by new autoloading device. I hope that Burevestnik is working on them, those guys managed to make 100 mm Naval gun with RoF of 300 shots per minute.
       
            I really like how turret looks, but i don't understand why there is such a big turret "busket" for unmanned turret with all ammo placed inside of hull in special armored housing. Also, i don't see gunner sight and proposed FSC radar on 3D model (i assume that panoramic sight is for commander). Laser sensors on 3D model are from T-90A variant of "Shtora".
       
            Some officials mentioned works on new active protection system, that consist of powerfull radar station, that can work on "long ranges" and engage incoming projectiles (missiles) with that gatling MG. Will this system survive development stage and be presented on serial tanks is unknown. Although turret for T-15 Armata-based IFV already was shown with new APS "Afganit".
       
            If you pay attention you may see that artist used T-80 rollers for Armata chassis, and this is not a mistake - according to some sources Armata heavy chassis will use T-80 or T-80-like rollers to save weight. And looking at rear part of that tank you may notice a engine deck from gas-turbine equipped version of the T-80, which can be mistake becuase MoD want Armata with new ~1500 HP diesel engine.
