Russian sources are ramping up war fever over Syria. Syrian air defense forces were reported Monday night on high alert for a possible US attack on Damascus. This was not confirmed by government sources in the Syrian capital. The Russian Defense Ministry claimed that Syrian rebels in Idlib were preparing to stage a false flag chemical weapon attack against civilians in order to blame Damascus and give the US and its allies a pretext for a punitive strike against Syria. The ministry spokesman earlier claimed that the USS Ross, a guided-missile destroyer, had entered the Mediterranean on Aug. 25 armed with 28 Tomahawk cruise missiles capable of hitting any target in Syria.
