    Zero Hedge ^ | 4-13-2017 | Tyler Durden
    It appears that Mike Cernovich, who earlier this week wrote that Trump's national security advisor, Gen. H.R.McMaster, was planning on sending as many as 150,000 troops to Syria, may have been right again. According to Bloomberg commentator Eli Lake, who has now made a habit of confirming Cernovich "conspiracy theories" (he did so previously with the Susan Rice scoop), Trump may be on the verge of escalating the proxy war in Syria by sending anywhere between 10,000 and 50,000 troops on the ground, and - if Cernovich is indeed correct - as much as three times more. Per Lake, after...

    China has reportedly put its military on alert for a possible crisis in Korea. Beijing is calling for calm, but the situation on the peninsula is extremely tense. Evidence suggests that North Korea may be preparing for a sixth nuclear test, and President Donald Trump’s posture in the wake of the recent strikes on Syria has the Chinese concerned. The USS Carl Vinson, accompanied by several guided-missile destroyers and cruisers, is on its way to Korea. “If Pyongyang conducts its sixth nuclear test in the near future, the possibility of US military action against it will be higher than ever,”...

    Current National Security Adviser Herbert Raymond “H. R.” McMaster is manipulating intelligence reports given to President Donald Trump, Cernovich Media can now report. McMaster is plotting how to sell a massive ground war in Syria to President Trump with the help of disgraced former CIA director and convicted criminal David Petraeus, who mishandled classified information by sharing documents with his mistress. As NSA, McMaster’s job is to synthesize intellience reports from all other agencies. President Trump is being given an inaccurate picture of the situation in Syria, as McMaster is seeking to involve the U.S. in a full scale war...

'  Its purpose is to reassure America’s nervous European allies that the U.S. military will stand with them against any aggressive moves by Russia. Moves, like the 2014 invasion of...
