US, France, Britain launch strikes on Syria

US, France, Britain launch strikes on Syria thumbnail

Washington (United States) (AFP) – The United States, Britain and France launched punitive military strikes against Bashar al-Assad’s Syrian regime in response to its latest alleged chemical weapons atrocity, President Donald Trump announced Friday.

Shortly after Trump began a White House address to announce the action, large explosions were heard in the Syrian capital Damascus, signalling a new chapter in a brutal seven-year-old civil war.

“A short time ago, I ordered the United States armed forces to launch precision strikes on targets associated with the chemical weapons capabilities of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad,” Trump said in a primetime televised speech to the nation.

“A combined operation with the armed forces of France and the United Kingdom is now under way. We thank them both. This massacre was a significant escalation in a pattern of chemical weapons use by that very terrible regime.”

A US official said the strikes had targeted chemical production facilities. Another official said multiple types of bombs were used, and a variety of targets chosen.

Trump also warned Russia and Iran not to stand by their ally in Damascus.

“Russia must decide if it will continue down this dark path or if it will join with civilized nations as a force for stability and peace,” he argued.

The strikes had been expected since harrowing footage surfaced of the aftermath of the alleged toxic gas attack in the Damascus suburb of Douma, which took place a week ago, and Trump reacted in an emotional tweet.

“Many dead, including women and children, in mindless CHEMICAL attack in Syria,” he declared.

“President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible for backing Animal Assad. Big price to pay.”

Trump’s anger and apparent determination was quickly matched by France’s President Emmanuel Macron, who signed his country up for a joint response.

Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May was more cautious, but by the time the first precision cruise missile was launched, Trump had a mini-coalition.

May said there was “no practicable alternative” to the use of force against Assad.

Trump’s language was more brutal: “They are crimes of a monster.”

– ‘Proof’ –

In the six days between the attack and the US-led response, Washington and Moscow clashed repeatedly in duelling press statements and US debates.

Moscow denied its ally Assad had any role in the outrage, pushing a variety of alternative theories that peaked with a claim that Britain had staged the event.

More practically, at the United Nations, Russia’s diplomats vetoed a US motion to re-establish an international investigation into chemical weapons use in Syria that could have established blame.

Washington, Paris and London have nevertheless insisted that their own secret intelligence points to Assad’s guilt, and on Friday, a US spokeswoman said they had “proof.”

The western leaders apparently found this convincing enough reason to launch a punitive strike, but other observers are concerned that the crisis could escalate.

The Russian military had vowed to respond to any attack, and Russian President Vladimir Putin’s administration had repeatedly warned that Trump was taking America down a dangerous path.

That concern was mirrored by United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, who on Friday warned the rival camps against “full-blown military escalation.”

“Let us not forget that, ultimately, our efforts must be about ending the terrible suffering of the Syrian people,” he urged the United States, Russia, China, France and Britain.

And he stressed the need “the need to avoid the situation spiraling out of control.”

– Decision to act –

But Trump has long criticized his predecessor Barack Obama for failing to enforce a previous US “red line” in 2013 after earlier chemical attacks blamed on Assad’s forces.

And he set his own precedent just over a year ago when he ordered a cruise missile strike on a Syrian air base after sarin was fired at civilians in the town of Khan Sheikhun.

Backed by his hawkish new national security adviser John Bolton, who took office on Monday, Trump has been meeting with advisors and generals all week to plan.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has reportedly been arguing for a cautious response that would minimize the risk of the US being dragged deeper into Syria’s civil war.

But other advisors want to use the opportunity to convince Trump, who wants to pull US forces out of Syria once the Islamic State jihadist group is defeated, to take a tough stance.

These hardliners, along with influential US allies Israel and Saudi Arabia, want Washington to counter Iran’s growing power in Syria — even if it means risking a perilous stand-off with Russia.

    So many interesting angles to this story – like a rich image-laden nightmare.

    Notice Germany abstained from the action.

    Notice Bolton just came on.

    Notice Trump desperately needs a positive distraction from the growing exposure of the massive levels of corruption going on throughout his family and administration.

    Notice the economy was heating up, starting to use too much oil and production playing a bit of catch-up.

    Hard to say what’s really going on in the brains of may and macron, let alone the crumbled brain of djt.

    “Notice Trump desperately needs a positive distraction from the growing exposure of the massive levels of corruption going on throughout his family and administration.”

    Trump is being lead by the nose by deeper powers. He knows opposing these people means more trouble. The deeper powers include the corrupt neocon and neoliberal elements of the US gov. Yea, the same people who basically call the shots to CNN, MSNBC, and others so they can crow the party line.

  3. Davy on Sat, 14th Apr 2018 7:54 am 

    IMA, you are aware of the massive corruption on the left? Or, have you just ignored all the stench waifting around these days. Singling out Trump without also showing what is going on elsewhere looks shallow. I am disgusted with Trump and his women problems lately and the straw that broke my back was Bolton. Bolton disgusts me. I can’t stand the science denying on the right. Yet, to blame Syria on Trump is a joke. To ignore what the left is doing these days is unacceptable in my mind. So much of this denial is goes on here on this board with the liberal lean’ers.

    Davy, they will blame Trump for everything. He messed up the plan. It was ‘her’ turn, if Killary was potus now, Baghdadi would be meeting the heads of state in Paris to discuss the fate of Syria as part of the new islamic state. With him as Caliph ready to command all islam and take the fight to all Shiites and Iran especially….
    The warparties must continue the war. Notice Turkey did not support these strike and the Neocons are making everything worse

    Trump was the only guy talking about peace with Russia, he does not want this. But it shows you how powerless he is in the face of one of the biggest series of events carried out by the British since the Suez incident. Imho if the truth ever comes out you will find that Britian and Israel are once again collaberating to ensure America keeps fighting in Syria and Trump has no friends left to back him cause he’s a marshmallow and keeps firing people cause he’s getting bad advice initially from his family, then Jared Kushner and now God knows who else he’s listening to.

Ich war so verängstigt, weil Eurotard (Gewinner des angesehenen “Baghdad Bob” Preises für einen enormen Beitrag zur Leugnung des Holocaust und falsche Nachrichten) mir erzählte, dass unsere Träger in schwelenden Ruinen wegen der Raketen von putin und nuklearen Raketen sein würden.

    “weil Eurotard (Gewinner des angesehenen “Baghdad Bob” Preises für einen enormen Beitrag zur Leugnung des Holocaust“

    I do not deny the holotale, it is just that I have seen no evidence and I have a premonition that you are not going to give me a single name and proof of somebody who was gassed either. I’m tired of Americans who keep shitting their lies on Europe and next refuse to debate it. Put up or shut up.

    “Wir leben nach der Enttäuschung von Eurotard”

    Absolutely not. Last night’s action was an attempt to fool the deep state, nothing happened.

    Lets see now, the leader of Syria is a real bad guy so the US and allies have to go their and bomb the crap out of the country destroying killing and maiming everything and anything in the way. After the bombing the US and allies will impose sanctions that will further devastate the population, mostly the very young and old. In the aftermath there will be streams of refugees trying to escape and will be unwanted by the rest of the worlds countries. By that time the US and allies will be on to the next “bad guy leader” in some other country that needs some Democracy.

    There are poor saps living on the streets of Washington DC for God’s sake.

    Give them a room at the Trump Hotel there and a hundred dollars a day so they can have something to eat and a place to stay.

    Buy them some new clothes and help out their plight.

    Those dumbarses running the show there in Washington should have their heads examined. You would only find their skulls empty of any brains whatsoever. Never had any to begin with, no surprise there.

    Should be obvious by now. A hundred million dollars of exploding hardware is a drop in the bucket, they’ll do it all over again one more time. Good Lord, what a waste.

    Smarmy bastards, schmucks, cads, all the words that can describe how damn dumb they really are.

    Help out the poor slobs that need it right where the deep state snakes slither. The slithering snakes will burn in hell, that I know. lol

    You really can’t pay attention to any of it.

    Cuts into your drinking time and doing something worth your while.

    All not well in ME Land

    In an article titled “A Saudi prince’s quest to remake the Middle East” published in The New Yorker, Dexter Filkins says that Turkey sent troops to Qatar in response to a possible invasion by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

    “American officials concluded that M.B.S. and M.B.Z. were preparing to overthrow Qatar’s government,” it reads, referring to Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman and UAE Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed.

    “The government of Turkey, which had a military base in the capital, sent a new detachment of soldiers,” wrote Filkins, adding that the coup plan had been approved at a summit in Riyadh.

    The “intention was to replace the Emir,” it continues, citing an American diplomat.

    Saudi,UAE coup attempt in Qatar foiled by Turkey
    Saudi, UAE coup attempt in Qatar foiled by Turkey
    Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain and Yemen announced in June 2017 that they cut diplomatic ties with Qatar, accusing Doha of supporting terrorism, charges that Qatar denies. They also imposed a land, sea and air blockade, causing the largest diplomatic crisis in recent years.However, it was later revealed that the Gulf crisis was not limited to the blockade and that Saudi Arabia and the UAE wanted to overthrow Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani and replace him with his nephew living in London. Turkish units guarded Sheikh Tamim’s palace and prevented the coup.Mehmet Acet, a coloumnist for Yeni Şafak daily, in the Turkish publication Gerçek Hayat magazine reveals the details of a coup attempt in Qatar that Turkey foiled on June 5:I will explain the situation at Emir Sheikh Tamim’s palace the day the Gulf crisis broke out in Qatar, on June 5, and Turkey’s critical role.It is such an important role that without the critical intervention on that day, everything would be different, and the history of the region would be written differently.Let me begin then.It was one question that allowed us to reach the news.I asked it to a key figure in the Cabinet:“Was Turkey the main target in the Qatar issue?”Were they actually referring to Turkey?My source said “We should not think of it in that much detail,” and added:“They (Saudi Arabia) told the United States that they had made a $350 billion deal with them. ‘Support me. Let’s replace the emir in Qatar,’ they said. That’s just the way it is. As Mr. Erdoğan did not allow this, their plan was ruined.”“As Mr. Erdoğan did not allow this…” Pay attention to this emphasis.Everybody knows what our president did during this process, at least the part that was disclosed.He declared that he stood by the emir of Qatar, called him to express his support on June 5, sent food aid by planes and conducted a busy international phone traffic…We know that President Erdoğan has done such things since June 5.But the phrase “did not allow…”Did something else happen that we do not know about?What was not allowed?Turkish Special Units at Qatari Emir’s PalaceDays after my meeting with the cabinet member, while in talks with Qatari officials during meetings, there was mention of a great heroic tale of Turkey and Tayyip Erdoğan that reached my ears.What was told was hair-raising.According to the report, on the night of June 5, the day the Qatar crisis began, Turkish Special Units protected Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani from a coup attempt.The information we obtained went like this: “A well-timed deployment by selected Turkish units to the palace secured the Emir’s palace and saved Sheikh Tamim from a surprise attack and coup attempt.“The Saudi and Emirati special units were then forced to turn back halfway as they moved to install the Qatari Emir’s London-based nephew in his place.”So, was what was told true?Did a specially-trained Turkish team really save the Qatari Emir from a coup attempt?Although I had confidence in my source who is operationally qualified, there was still a need to get a confirmation due to the fact that we were dealing with a very important subject.I knew where to turn to for confirmation.A high-ranking government official who has a seat at the table of most decision-making mechanisms in Ankara.Turkish special unit of 200 troops in QatarThe reports were true.On the night of June 5, nearly 200 specially trained Turkish units that were deployed in the regions/countries near Qatar were mobilized upon an order from Ankara.The target was the palace of the Qatari emir.The task order was to prevent a possible coup attempt on that night that would be carried out by another country or countries against the Emir, and to provide security for him and his palace.The mission was successfully completed.Meanwhile, specially trained units of Saudi Arabia and the UAE were about to take action for the same target.Rumor had it that they had already set off.But their goal was contrary with that of the Turkish troops.They wanted to go to the palace, neutralize and topple the emir, and stage a coup.But the Turkish units acted sooner.Specially-equipped units arrived at the palace on time and ensured the security of the emir.Thus, Saudi Arabia and the UAE’s special units failed to overthrow Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani with a coup.Now, the words of the Cabinet member were making sense.“As Mr. Erdoğan did not allow this, their plan was ruined.”Planes on standbyWe reached another piece of vital information from an authority figure in our attempts to confirm the events at the Qatari emir’s palace.That night planes of the Turkish Armed Forces, with the motors running, were on standby to act in the case of a situation arising.If need be, these planes would take flight and set off toward Qatar to fulfil the mission they were given.However, it was seen that this was not necessary as the land operation achieved its goal.The emir’s requests from President ErdoğanNow we can pursue another question: How did the idea to save the Qatari emir from the coup with the special Turkish units taking action develop?Most likely after a telephone conversation.The Gulf crisis erupted on June 5.Led by Saudi Arabia, some Gulf states and Egypt suddenly severed relations with and imposed a blockade on Qatar.After the news reached Ankara, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan started an extensive phone traffic.On June 5, one of the first people the Turkish president spoke to was Qatar’s emir.The stream of events display that after the emir explained the situation, he made a special request from Erdoğan on ensuring the security of the palace.The developments that follow show that the emir made two critical requests from Erdoğan. 1. Before Saudi Arabia and the UAE act, Turkey must act and prevent this coup. That was indeed what happened. 2. Ankara must hurry for Turkish soldiers to be put on duty in Qatar. We know this because events developed exactly in this way. The Gulf countries made a 13-point list of demands in order to restore diplomatic relations with Doha, which it had to respond to within 10 days, including the closing of a Turkish base.Why do you think they made such a request?The answer is very clear, isn’t it?They would not be able to stage a coup while Turkey was around.That’s why…Then what happened?Qatar rejected these demands.At the end of such a report, do you think that Qatar’s emir will shut down the Turkish base in Doha?

    Turkey’s Gerçek Hayat (Real Life) Magazine revealed that Turkey had prevented the coup in its Dec. 25, 2017 edition.

    “On the night of June 5, close to 200 specially trained Turkish forced deployed close to Qatar took action with orders from Ankara. Meanwhile, specially trained teams from Saudi Arabia and the UAE were also about to mobilize toward the same target. It was the Turkish troops who acted earlier,” wrote Mehmet Acet.

    Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain and Yemen announced in June 2017 that they cut diplomatic ties with Qatar, accusing Doha of supporting terrorism, charges which Qatar denies. They also imposed a land, sea and air blockade, causing the largest diplomatic crisis in recent years.

    Saudi, UAE, Bahrain planned to occupy Qatar with militias in 1996 foiled coup

    The details of the 1996 coup attempt of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain to topple Qatar’s former Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani have been revealed in an Al Jazeera documentary.The foiled coup occurred on Feb. 14 1996, merely one year after Sheikh Hamad took to the throne. The attempt, called “Operation Abu Ali” was plotted jointly by the former police chief and cousin of Sheikh Hamad, Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani.Coup committeeA committee was established to shape the coup headed by Sheikh Mohammad bin Zayed, then chief of staff of the UAE armed forces and current crown prince of Abu Dhabi; Sheikh Hamad bin Issa Al Khalifa, then crown prince of Bahrain; Sheikh Sultan bin AbdulAziz, then Saudi minister of defense and Omar Suleiman, the late Egyptian intelligence chief and former vice president of Egypt.UAE actions indicate fresh attempts to stage coup in QatarRaid of emir’s homeA raid by a group of men on the house of Sheikh Hamad was organized, and they were ordered to place him under house arrest. Although the raid was scheduled for Feb. 16, 1996 at 5 a.m., Emirati Emir Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed ordered that it be conducted two days earlier to prevent the coup from being exposed.

    Occupation via militias. The putschists were planning on enabling militias to enter Qatar through the Saudi border once the military and security institutions were under their control.The planned coup was discovered despite efforts by the coup committee to keep it secret.”If they had taken over, and if the forces had entered – whether from the UAE or the Emirates or Bahrain – they would have had no qualms killing those they spot in the street. They have nothing to lose,” retired Brigadier-General Shaheen al-Sulaiti told Al Jazeera.

    Not the first or the lastIn 1995, Saudi-Qatar relations were strained following two unsuccessful coup attempts against Sheikh Hamad, who opposed Saudi Arabia’s presidency of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). In 2002, Saudi Arabia withdrew its ambassador from Qatar because of Al Jazeera’s press policy. Qatar-Gulf relations experienced the most troubled period in 2011 with the beginning of the Arab Spring.The Egyptian and Libyan processes especially bothered the UAE, which is a staunch opponent of the Muslim Brotherhood. More recently, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt launched a blockade against Qatar in June 2017, accusing it of supporting terrorism, charges which it denies.

    Traitorous meetingYeni Şafak had earlier reported on the coup plans of the UAE targeting Qatar. Qatari Sheikh Sultan bin Suhaim Al Thani, a member of the Qatari royal family who called for a radical overhaul of his country’s foreign policy, was welcomed to his “second home” by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai, and Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed.

    You dont need to reproduce massive walls of text from an article you obtained elsewhere Bobtard. How about just a link if you think the sheeple and (goats) need to hear about it? I think one line is actually yours, that bit at the end? Not even sure about that tbh.

    @BobInget – very good find. The real implication is that Turkey and Iran both act as backers of Qatar and its immense natural gas wealth. Interesting is that neither Turkey nor Iran play the Sunni-Shia card as vehemently as KSA does. What connects Iran to Turkey is the mutual aversion against western imperialism. I see slowly an alliance between Turkey-Iran brewing, aiming at dividing the Saudi loot between them, using the Muslim Brotherhood as a revolutionary tool. After KSA, Egypt and Jordan, not to mention Palestine, will be next. Additionally I think that Iran will grant Turkey sovereignty over Syrian Kurdistan, as long as Erdogan leaves Assad alone, South of the Euprates.

    Turkey and Iran as the Germany and France of an Islamic sort of EU, free from the West, or anybody else.

    “Warship Ruse and New Stealth Missiles: How the U.S. and Allies Attacked Syria”
    https://tinyurl.com/ybpph6vg

    “the U.S. guided-missile destroyer USS Winston Churchill was en route to the Mediterranean to join a flotilla of allied warships, including another U.S. destroyer, the USS Donald Cook. It was a ruse. While both vessels carry as many as 90 Tomahawk missiles — the main weapon used in the Friday evening strike on Syria — neither ship in the end fired a shot. Instead, according to a person familiar with White House war planning, they were part of a plan to distract Russia and its Syrian ally from an assault Assad’s government could do little to defend itself against.”

    “It worked. Pentagon officials on Saturday said they faced little resistance to their targeted attack on what they said were three Syrian chemical weapons facilities. Most of the Syrian countermeasures, including defensive ballistic missiles, were fired after U.S. and allied weapons hit their targets, Lieutenant General Kenneth McKenzie told reporters on Saturday. “No Syrian weapon had any effect on anything we did,” McKenzie said. He described the joint U.S., French and U.K. strike as “precise, overwhelming and effective.”

    “a barrage of 105 U.S., U.K. and French missiles converged on Syria. They came from the Red Sea, the Arabian Gulf and the Mediterranean, homing in from three directions to overwhelm whatever missile defenses Assad’s regime might employ. Russia’s more advanced air defense system didn’t engage the allied weapons. According to the Pentagon, the allied weaponry included 19 new “Extended-Range” stealthy Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Attack Munitions launched by two B-1B bombers based out of Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar, and six Tomahawk cruise missiles launched from the Virginia-class USS John Warner submarine. The bomber-launched missiles, build by Lockheed Martin Corp., had never previously been used in combat.”

    “Red Sea Attack The cruiser USS Monterey fired 30 Tomahawks and the destroyer USS Laboon fired seven Tomahawks from the Red Sea. The destroyer USS Higgins fired 23 Tomahawks from the North Arabian Gulf, according to McKenzie. The weapons also included French SCALP-EG cruise missiles and British Storm Shadow standoff missiles launched by Tornado and Typhoon jets. Nine SCALP missiles were fired at what the Pentagon said was a chemical weapons storage complex at Hims-Shinshar, along with two SCALPS, nine Tomahawks and eight Storm Shadows.”

    “Turn on the news, dummy.” Hey, you are the guy constantly demanding sources and documentation. You need to open a dictionary, dummy. This is the definition of hypocrisy. Hypocrisy as a character trait has affected your thinking, because it consists in the negation of all the aspects of reality that you find disagreeable and contrary to your preconceived notions.

While other cadets fulfilled their military conscription responsibilities, Dump used daddy’s money and power to avoid military service by multiple medical deferments. It was more important that he remain in NYC grabbing pussy then serve in Vietnam. Hitler actually served in WW I combat and he received the Iron Cross for “bravery while in the course of battle.”

    I have never deified the Dems. Otherwise show me and everyone else where I have. However, to compare the evil doings of the Republicons to the Dems is ridiculous. There is no comparison. These Republican fucks are responsible for the death of my nephew. The Republicons are doing everything within their power to destroy the living world. And you want me to look the other way?

    Oh sure, Clogged, Trump is a mental giant except for his inability to string together two coherent sentences-LOL.

    Der dummy, the scope of such a comment on this forum is too large. Get a grip and turn off your selective vision.

  37. GregT on Sat, 14th Apr 2018 5:28 pm 

    Will do Davy. I’ll let you ‘men’ get back to your little gossip session. I’ve still got a dozen trees left to de-limb and buck up.

    Chat later buds.

    Who is this ‘we’ (again) that’s got what covered, delusionist? If by ‘we’, you mean you and your kosher pal, clogghraham, well, then yes, you got the dumbass and WWII, Hitler angle covered. No argument.

    Outside of that, there is no ‘we’ going on, exceptionalist.

    Hey Russia, I thought you said that you would attack US military if Trump ordered a strike on Syria. Which he just did. So now it’s like, next time we will be serious. STFU Russia. You are a failing economy with GDP less that Italy, your military is a paper tiger, and your level of corruption makes it nearly impossible do get anything done

  44. makati1 on Sat, 14th Apr 2018 6:47 pm 

    MM, I think you need to reread what the Russians REALLY said. Do some REAL research on the Russian economy and military that is NOT Us propaganda and then come back with something to substantiate your claims. All of which are pure bullshit.

    What to believe:
    “Trump Praises “Perfectly Executed Strike” In Syria: “Mission Accomplished!””

    “”We Successfully Hit Every Target”: Highlights From Pentagon Press Briefing On Syria Airstrikes”

    “Syria Claims It Intercepted 71 Out Of 103 Cruise Missiles; Pentagon Denies”

    “”People Are Dancing In The Streets”: Syria, Russia, Iran Shrug Off Trump’s Airstrikes”

    “Syrian Army Declares Victory Over Rebels In Eastern Ghouta, Just Hours After Airstrikes”

    “Oil Price Risk Cut After US Avoids Direct Confrontation With Russia”

    “AS WAR DRUMS BEAT FOR SYRIA, REMEMBER, LIES AND PROPAGANDA STARTED NEARLY EVERY WAR IN US HISTORY”

    ALL because of the faked chemical attack. Lies are all the Us has left and they are so blatant that they are obvious to most everyone with two functioning brain cells.

    “Eyewitness Testimonies During Syria “Chemical Attack'” Explain How Video Was Staged”

    or:

    “Independent Swiss Lab Says ‘BZ Toxin’ Used In Skripal Poisoning; US/UK-Produced, Not Russian”

    And war drum beat goes on…

    Did I just throw cold water on your little imaginary fantasy about Russia? LOL I have to give you credit though. for an old timer you do have a very strong imagination.

    Everything was awesome around y2k with the global economy and suddenly 911 happened, the mother of all false flag attacks, and suddenly we were at war and had the western world all buy into the scam. We bought into Saddam’s WMD’s everywhere. Now we have the phony chemical weapons attack with no evidence whatsoever. This tells me they’re all getting very desperate. I’m guessing the Saudi’s called these “leaders” into a room and told them Ghawar’s about to cave in. They’re all very desperate for some reason.
