The United States could be set to launch air strikes against Syria as soon as tonight, with a Tomahawk missile-armed destroyer already in place.

“The USS Donald Cook, a destroyer armed with Tomahawk cruise missiles, has arrived off the coast of Syria, and is being harassed by low-flying Russian fighter jets,” tweeted Jacob Wohl, citing Turkish media reports.

The destroyer is reportedly only 100 kilometers from the Russian naval base in Tartus.

This confirms Infowars’ earlier reporting in which we revealed that the USS Donald Cook was “in position for any military action within Syria”.

The U.S. Navy denied that the USS Donald Cook is situated off the coast of Syria, but refused to confirm its location or where it was headed next.

The USS Laboon, an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer which was previously deployed to Libya after the Benghazi attack, is also in close proximity as is the USS Georgia submarine. The British RAF has also dispatched an aircraft used to refuel fighter jets to the region.

According to Sky News reporter Mark Austin, “The tone of US Ambassador to UN suggests military strikes are a done deal. The problem is where that leads ? So many rival players, and interests. Hugely dangerous moment.”
