And god forbid that someone with some knowledge of the topic refute it, on a discussion site.

It's very important if you ask me to realize that Natasha Mozgovaya didn't say this first hand as if she got information about an attack.. Natasha Mozgovaya was quoting someone elses OPINION on twitter..
Direct link to the post, note it's surrounded in quotes: twitter.com...
"I believe a missile strike against #Assad forces is imminent & Obama will notify us in 20 minutes, the strikes will begin"
9 minutes later she posted this: twitter.com...
She didn't mean next 20 minutes She meant there will b little warning in her opinion
So no she doesn't know anything about an imminent strike and and it's not "according to Natasha Mozgovaya" .. she was merely quoting someone else's opinion
I think we all expect an attack to some degree... but I think it's unfair to attribute this to Natasha.. Twitter is the kind of place where things get taken incorrectly... people don't pay attention when something is a quote, or an opinion vs fact and actual breaking reporting .. =) ..
And by the way CNN hasn't said anything about an imminent attack that I can see.. they do say "some see missile strike as likely" which I think we all do.
Update: after reading her twitter feed, it sounds like the quote was from Susan Rice, and Susan Rice is apparently consulting with congress.edit on 8/26/2013 by miniatus because: (no reason given)

We get creamed every time we stick our nose into one of these messes.
We have no clue who the Rebels are.
This looks like a convenient distraction from scandals.
We can not continue to ignore our own Constitution.
I hate war...

The US Administration will not not air when they make the strike just after they make the strike.
The War Book Rules I guess to suprise the enemy with a strategic attack

People seem to be missing the point...
This is not going to be a ground war... Its a limited air / missile strike and there is nothing to show the attack is imminent. It would be like arguing, as some have, that Russian ships in Syria are present to deter an attack when in reality its a repair facility / provision port for the Russians.
