Just as President Donald Trump told Vladimir Putin to “get ready” for a missile strike the most feared aircraft in the U.S. military arsenal took to the sky. The United States military forces put a Boeing E-4B Nightwatch plane into the air from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Indiana within minutes of the President’s warning to the Russian leader.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with “The Nightwatch” which is also known as the “Doomsday Plane.” It is an air nuclear war command center where it allows for the US to maintain it’s chain of command in the event of a major war. It also serves as a mobile communications hub. Although Pentagon officials declined to give any information whatsoever about this particular flight it is a sign that a conflict in the scale of a world war is in fact imminent. This particular plane is one of the 10 emergency airborne command posts which are ready at a seconds notice in case of a war breaking out and usually, the President and his to generals are on board in times of conflict.
The planes are kept on round-the-clock alert and they are summoned into action by a “Klaxon” which is kept within the range of the U.S. President at all times, even when he’s outside the US. Doomsday Planes can even stay airborne for up to 150 hours, just over six days, even though a full-scale nuclear war would be expected to end within minutes. Pentagon officials declined to comment on this particular deployment in question but they did confirm the planes have “Numerous missions every day.” Which means this isn’t a big deal, but at the same time the timing is very suspect in nature considering things with Russia when it comes to Syria aren’t the best.
Trump voiced his opinions on Twitter regarding relations with Russia.
The Daily Star reported more details about the situation with Trump and Russia: “Trump tweeted: “Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!”
“You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!”
The US President’s tweet esclates tensions to a new level amid reports of an imminent strike by US forces on the Syrian regime.
Russia are allies with dictator Bashar al-Assad and are expected to defend him should the US attack – with US accusing Putin of having “blood on his hands”.
US warplanes were spotted flying over Syria last night, and destroyer USS Donald Cook is operating in the Mediterranean.
Britain and France are being called upon by the US to join any military action against Assad.
Dozens of civilians– including children – were killed in the strike on the rebel held town of Douma.
Trump decided to strike Syria last year, launching a blitz of 59 missiles over a chemical attack – but Russia failed to respond.
The US President had promised to act on the latest attack within 48-hours, and said “major decisions” will be made and “all options” are on the table.
Flights have been diverted around the war-torn country for the next 72 hours amid fears of an imminent strike.
Russia’s ambassador to Lebanon – Alexander Zasypkin – cited Putin and Russia’s top generals as he claimed Moscow will not allow the US to attack Syria.
He outright threatened Russian forces would shoot down US missiles, as well as striking the “source”.
This could refer to US military bases, US warships in the Mediterranean, or US warplanes launched from nearby bases in the Middle East.
Speaking on Tuesday, the ambassador said: “If there is a strike by the Americans then the missiles will be downed and even the sources from which the missiles were fired.”
US ambassador to the UN Nikki Hayley said: “The monster who was responsible for these attacks has no conscience.
“The Russian regime, whose hands are all covered in the blood of Syrian children, cannot be shamed by pictures of its victims. We’ve tried that before.”
She added: “We are on the edge of a dangerous precipice. The great evil of chemical weapons use that once unified the world in opposition is on the verge of becoming the new normal.
“The international community must not let this happen. We have reached the moment when the world must see justice done.”
Tensions are getting high. This completely destroys the narrative about collusion with Russia, especially if a war breaks out. Whatever happens, let’s hope we never need to use one of these planes.
