Chinese Envoy: UK ‘Poisoning’ Atmosphere on UN Security Council in Vote on Syria
“What right does he have to distort the position of other countries? The Security Council is a solemn forum. It is not a place where groundless attacks can be made on other countries’ positions,” Liu said Monday.
He added: “I would like to request the UK representative to put an end to such practice of poisoning the atmosphere of the Security Council and abusing the solemn forum of the Council. This is not the first time that he did this, and I hope that such actions will not be repeated in the future.”
I saw that – quite an amazing statement, given that the Chinese typically stay in the background. Somebody is definitely losing patience…
These are all very serious allegations for the two nuclear superpowers, China and Russia to be making against the American empire. What is it three times now that Putin has been royally shafted, stabbed in the back and betrayed in Syria? While I can see him bidding his time for the right moment to retaliate, I don’t see him letting them get away with it with impunity in the long run. I don’t understand what they are trying to provoke and who’s actually behind it, as I can’t see the Noble Peace Peace prize wimp Obama, actually wanting to end his term, having caused world war three to start, but maybe I’m dead wrong.
Mathew Rycroft was a private Foreign Affairs secretary at the time of the UK involvement in the invasion of Iraq.
His job seems to have been to assist in the groundwork to smooth the passage of selling the war to the British public and political opposition: mainly, through insisting on the US go through the UN, even though the decision to invade had ready been taken.
Appearance is all.
If you open the link, scroll down to pages17 / 19, where you can see how the ‘conditions’ – going through the UN for example – were essentially for ‘form’, and were little more than a veneer of quasi-legal respectability to benefit from immunity.
So he’s now clearly been tasked with selling intervention in Syria in much the same way, as part of the ‘no-fly’ zone strategy declared recently by congress: he has a history of liasing with US.
His tactics might be better derailed by persistent reference to his role in the Iraq invasion, recently declared by General Mattis as a ‘strategic mistake’.
Such major credibility issues can surely be adroitly exploited by someone as smart and experienced as Churkin (I don’t know of Liu, but he certainly sounds astute).
Anger is no way to win a war. Threats are no way to win a war. So who is this aimed at? Israel? Russia insiders? I don’t know. You tell me.
The Russian straightaway charge the US, UK and France. Plain language.
And CIA/Special Ops gave the coordinates for the mortar attack on the hospital, which happened precisely as the Russians were taking in the first civilian patients. 9 mortars struck the area, a complex of tents clearly marked with Red Crosses. At noon time on a clear day, in a relatively safe area.
At Col. Cassad, there are photos and several videos. You can see the immediate action of the rescue teams and firemen putting out the blazes.
Russians have excellent Intel and know all the “actors” in this tragic drama.
There will be retribution for these war crimes.
It was cold blooded murder and following the UNSC meeting where Russia and China vetoed another attempt to “save their terrorists” the Russians made their position very clear :
The US withdraws its proposals:
The Russinas have thrown down the gauntlet to the terrorists – leave or die:
The families of the murdered medics will be looked after:
But there is more. Much more …
Giving coordinates is one thing. Destroying the target based on correct coordinates, provided by a drone or by satellite it is a different thing. This is a very complex thing, and needs a lot of experience and expertise.
Normally for a target like that, or machine gun nest, the classic procedure uses a battery of 4 mortars 120mm.
The classical operation of each barrel of the battery is this:
For the mortar barrel to operate effectively, each squad member must be proficient in his individual duties. By performing those duties as a team member, he enables the mortar squad and section to perform as a fighting team. There is platoon leader that commands the platoon, and he uses the chain of command to assist him in effecting his command and supervising duties.
The mortar squad consists of five men.
The squad leader.
The gunner stands where he can manipulate the sight, elevating hand wheel, and traversing hand wheel. He places firing data on the sight and lays the mortar for deflection and elevation, and keeps the bubbles level during firing. But he has much more to do.
The assistant gunner stands to the right of the mortar, facing the barrel and ready to load the gun. During the fire sequence he inform the crew saying loaded, and fired, or misfired. He has more things to do.
The first ammunition bearer stands to the right rear of the mortar. He has the duty of preparing the ammunition and passing it to the assistant gunner.
The second ammunition bearer stands to the right rear of the mortar behind the ammunition bearer. He maintains the ammunition for firing. He performs other duties as the squad leader directs.
He takes care for the type of warhead, weight of each round ++ … or – -, choose the type of fuse, insert it, activates it turning Knob with a screw driver, Chose the Propelling Charge Increments from 0 to 4 depending on distance from 1000m to 6500m.
The classical way to use the battery is:
Battery over (name of target) type of explosive, fuse, azimuth, elevation, one round load.
After the confirmation, the second command is from 1 to 4, interval 5 seconds fire.
This provides the data to correct the fire, but gives the time for intended target to run.
To destroy the target with the first salvo things are very much complicated.
They have to consider more factors as, Muzzle Velocity (m/sec), Range Wind (knots), Air Density (%), Air Temp (%), Form Factor (%), Quadrant Elevation (mils), Jump (mils).
Taking in consideration all these factors you still cannot hit the target with the first salvo. To improve the standard deviation of errors, you have to fire at least one round in an acceptable distance from the target with the same elevation, but with some different azimuth angle, to make necessary corrections.
This is a job of experienced, and professional artiller. If the battery fired more than one salvo, than there was an eye in the sky, during the attack too.
Thank you hugely for sharing your expertise with this site and forum. This is the kind of non CIANN information that sites like this thrive on. – fk mod.
Dennis, pick the difference between anger and direct statement of facts. Putins Russia (as I call current day Russia) never reacts in anger.
Russia has been directly attacked by Morrel’s version of the US. (kill Iranians, kill Russians – look up the Morrel/Charlie Rose interview on youtube.)
Putins Russia does not make threats. Only statements of fact.
He was not angry. He was making a point which is we know who you are. The Russians posted the GPS location of what is a medical facility ages ago. Big difference between dying in combat and the explicit murder of medical staff. The latter is the realm of cowards and degenerates.
Dennis, any sane observer would read this not as a threat but as a clear statement of intent, as in: “We know the perpetrators and will exact a corresponding price.”
@ Mr. Leary: Tit for tat is a well known military doctrine which you might call Karmic payback or in this case, “tough Love”.
I thought with Trump elected president, we would begin to back off from a WWIII scenario, although I also wondered if the malignant forces, taking advantage of lame duck Obama while he is still in office, would engineer something in Syria that could lead to WWIII before Trump is sworn in. So far, no reaction from Putin. Is this our Archduke event?
” Is this our Archduke event?”
Nope. US no longer makes reality. Expect more “advisors” or similar to be scraped off walls of caves.
It seems, Putin is „just watching“ – but from where? Two quotes from The Benya Weekly may solve or deepen the mystery:
(1) There is now a major campaign unfolding to remove remaining senior Rothschild agents like the so-called “Vladimir Putin” of Russia (the real Putin died long ago), Chinese strongman Xi Jinping, Japanese slave Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Hitler’s daughter Angela Merkel in Germany, according to multiple sources in China, Russia, the US, Japan and elsewhere. The shockwaves caused by the fall of Italy’s Renzi will be the biggest for now (…). The problem is while the Saudi and Qatari oil is linked to the Satanic Bush, Clinton and Rockefeller families, the Russian oil giant Gazprom that is emerging victorious in the Syrian pipeline war is controlled by equally Satanic Jacob de Rothschild.
That is why Russian FSB and NSA sources both insist first that the real Vladimir Putin was murdered and second that the look-alikes playing his role are Rothschild puppets.
(2) CIA sources in Asia say the sudden resignation of New Zealand’s Prime Minister “is directly connected to what is going on at ‘The Base’ in Antarctica…..John Key knows what is about to happen and he does not want to be at the helm of his country’s government when it does.” The source was reluctant to give more detail but hinted it had to do with the imminent arrival of “the fleet.” He was not referring to a naval fleet.
Why stop at Fulford?
I’m sure Sorcha Faal has the inside track too..
Trump isnt in power yet. Not until January.
The last time US and her admittedly participant minions ‘mistakenly’ bombed a SAA unit that may have had Russian advisors on sight with the SAA unit for almost an hour despite the almost instant notification of the ‘mistake’ by Russia, seems some Kalibr’s flew in to a mountain gorge a couple days later and did unkind things to a command and control node staffed by ‘nato’ operatives, operating illegally in a sovereign country. Apparently ‘nato’ didn’t get the message. I’d be willing to bet they will get it this time.
Talmudo-Satanists are notoriously slow learners as they have nowhere to hurry to… that is not hot… for eternity.
The subject of your statement are not the ones doing the dying. They seem to be masters at manipulating others to die for them instead.
They will have to send 2 or more messages to make sure pupil understands.
Regards, Spiral ( former teacher)
Sadly, I doubt they will get the message for a while yet.
They have stupidly painted themselves into a corner and lost all pretence of reason. One of our sabre-rattlers in government (UK) announced a few days ago that even if Trump pulls out of involvement in Syria, the UK will continue the ‘Assad Must Go’ programme. (With what, I ask myself, our 6 remaining fully-functioning aircraft and a few obsolete ships?)
Deaths of ‘special advisors’ operating illegally in Syria and Yemen are never officially acknowledged. Uncounted and unacknowledged actually means totally expendable to their political masters who will shrug them off with nary a thought.
The only thing that ends these type of wars is US boots in body bags. The more the better.
True. Thats what they fear most.
Since ALL the body-bags are now filled with the remains of the ‘Les “Deplorables (and irredeemables)” no one but their families care. And they are at the opposite end of the 1% who-own-everything scale.
Despite knowing the low life level of the command of the US Coalition for many years and many occasions, its still comes as some surprise to see the ISIS beasts and the US/Nato high command on the same human garbage level.
Is both indication of end-of-diplomatic phase, and also causative of it. Comrade General gives voice to a Policy of Proportionate Force (isn’t this obvious?). Further, isn’t it obvious that “Proportionate” means, in part, properly notifying the target… Evidently the next steps are liable to involve… OK, you name that state… with Russian forces.
This late morning at St. Nikolas Church in Sevastopol we had a memorial service for our fallen medics. Service was well attended including numerous Spetznaz with several mid level officers from the various military units in the area. The service was quite somber as were the discussions after the service.
This is more than heartbreaking. I can imagine how sad this must have been. I am not easily impressed by news, but this really brought tears to my eyes. These most beautiful souls, young and pretty people seeking to help syrians, no interest but pure goodness. Our Lord clearly said, his followers would not be treated better then their Master was. It is bitter Truth. But also sublime and beautiful. May our Lord receive their souls and give comfort to their families.
Both nurses were mothers too. So their families have lost their moms. They will get full military honours.
It looks like the pediatrician is now stable – so a little bit of good news from the devestation.
Amen! Beauitful words!
Auslander, it brings tears to my soul. The evil and horror which is visited on people whom ever they are and what ever the capacity they are in to try and lead a peaceful life and or help others to do the same.
To the service personal in your area, a heart felt thanks to preventing such in the Krim and to serving the will of the people not that of Mammon.
I was thinking.
Isnt this attack a typical Obama action?
Yes. Has the same feel of his criminal drone strikes.
Distant command, deniability, demonic.
That’s the Hegemon’s style under Obama.
The corrupt arrogant American leadership, intelligence services and military only understand force and this goes also for their Zionist masters.
Russia should teach the Americans some good lessons and also teach anyone who dares to call the Americans their allies.
Idlib and Deir al zor should be next on their list.
Where (in which court) can a person sue NATO?
One cannot sue nations until there is a genuine Suprational Court (not the kangaroo court at the Hague). The most one can do is wait for Evolution to drum the wastefulness and frightfulness of war into the brains of the sheeple who are the ones to pay for their leaders’ wars and die in their leaders’ wars. Read that wonderful essay, “Perpetual Peace”, written with white hot indignation by Immanuel Kant in 1795. Starts with a warning against Bankers’ Wars, the burning topic of today; and a delicious quote from one of the 0.001% on how little they value the lives of the sheeple whom they send to do the actual fighting: “A blacksmith who has tongs does not pull the glowing coals from the fire with his bare hands”.
Terrible attack in Syria on the hospital – i believe it was the Americans who are not to be trusted. Ever
Perhaps now Lavrov will stop the useless talks with Kerry about a ceasefire. I can’t understand this approach
At this stage in the battle it must be seen through to the end SAA morale is high that needs up be maintained as Aleppo dies not mean the end of the war.
Cannot believe Putin is some kind of puppet/double. The man’s statements and body language are as genuine and telling as can be.
However the fact we’re dealing with Satanists seems more and more clear. Elite pedophile rings seem to be the modus operandi of the Western elites.
And Lt Gen Michael Flynn, Trump’s appointee for National Security Advisor gave credibility to the pizzagate Podesta Wikileaks email scandal in a couple of pre election tweets about protecting children. Now the NYT has an oped from a Trump electoral college who says he will give his vote to Clinton based partly on choice of Flynn.
The BBC lists pizzagate as a “fake news” conspiracy- despite their half century coverup of extreme pedophile and BBC children’s TV icon Jimmy Savile.
Also where is Julian Assange? Not seen since the pizzagate issue broke. The group Anonymous have an ominous view on this.
And you still think the Trumpeter will ebe inaugurated.? Wow how daft can you be.! There will be no majority for him or her in electoral college. What is wrong with you people.? What about you Larchmonter 445, have you got some insight into who and why comes next.? I have given up trying to snag Scott or Saker in thinking about the reality of the coming gore presidency. Can’t happen.?
Pence is their pick. He is a knee-jerk neocon.
Trump has concentric circles of security. His top SS man, a tall bald chap named Keith, is actually from his private ex-NYPD security. He has many body men for himself and his family. Long before he ran, he was ultra sensitive about security.
The massive psy-ops and street violence techniques of the globalists and ideologues in opposition to Trump are only firming his support among the citizenry. He is an iconoclast, and this plays to the American personality.
It has been decades coming, but America is awake. They see that Love is transformative. This campaign was built on Patriotism and Love between Trump and the Movement for Change. The people are being turned against China. But there is still time and room for good will with Putin and Russia. There are lines of communication from the Kremlin to Trump Tower. Gen. Flynn and Don Jr., and others like Carter Page, have been sending and receiving messages on issues like Syria and Ukraine.
The war against Trump has just begun and will be relentless. So be patient with his counter-moves. He’s a clever tactician. He is like a Malamute sled dog, always heading straight for his goal. He throws off chaff like a jet fighter, so things are often misunderstood.
This morning he just called for cancellation of his new Air Force One planes because the program costs out at over $4 Billion. This sort of comment is historic.
Bam! in the face of Boeing and Congress and the Pentagon.
Hang in and keep prayers and good thoughts for America, Trump and the American people. They finally have found common sense.
He just was on TV as I write. Repeated the remark. Referred to the AF One program, which consists of two planes and all the security packages.
Americans want this Teddy Roosevelt type leader, calling out anyone for waste, cronyism, corruption and stupidity.
“Hang in and keep prayers and good thoughts for America, Trump and the American people. They finally have found common sense.”
Don’t make me laugh and don’t be that daft! You and many other similar devotees are going to eat your own words very soon because, even the best well-meaning Usan cannot turn round an out-of-control behemoth intent on self-destruction. As a reminder, the outgoing O’Bumma was also the nice guy who would put things right – he even won a Nobel Medal for his “good intentions” – and turned out a business-as-usual damp squib and criminal to boot; just the last one on a long line of war criminals and mass murderers going as far back as Truman, Kennedy included in spite of the feverish attempts of whitewash his crimes in a vain attempt at finding a decent president in that blood-thirsty monstrosity masquerading as a country – an impossible task.
It seems strange that we have not heard from Putin or Lavrov on this. Why are they remaining silent?
Considering, as I understand it, that Russia will not survive a nuclear war unless they launch a first strike, due to having American missiles within a 10 minute strike range of their cities, this silence seems deafening. Will the Russians respond to the hospital bombing by attacking the missile installations along their borders to remove this threat?
SLBM from a russian or chinese sub need 1-2 minutes to US costal cities. 80% of american population lives on the coasts. the red states will die from radiation. asta la vista, b!tches.
Dont you think NATO has twice as many…
Are you American or Israeli? I assume you are because only your breed fails to grasp the concept of ‘sufficiency’. Do you think it is possible, or needful, to kill people twice?!
Pshek? Balt? Ukro?
Sorry mike: NATO, being the armed wing of the Zionazi Bankster Oligarchy, could not possibly care less about your fate or that of your country. You should note, and duly understand, the difference between the Zionazis’ burning hatred of Russia and China on one hand and their quite justified utter contempt for Western Democracy — and those believing in it — on the other.
Bottom line: “Benign protection” from On High doesn’t necessarily rule out deception and coercion, mind you.
Russia is too large to be “eliminated” from a first strike. On the other hand, Russia is prepared for war, has build many shelters for its citizens. Russia does know how to deal with war.
The pindo state dept. pretended the war crime didn’t happen and the rc made a propaganda statement about it. Both are devoid of a moral compass and made up of subhuman filth.
‘Cynical & indifferent’: Russian MoD slams Red Cross statement on shelling of hospital in Aleppo
We received “cynical comments, not worthy of the high status of the International Committee of the Red Cross,” that showed “indifference to the murder of Russian doctors in Aleppo,” Konashenkov said.
“This is not just a violation of international law by the ‘sides of the conflict,’ as the ICRC statement reads, it is a pre-planned, cold-blooded murder of doctors by militants,” the general said, according to TASS.
“The ICRC, whose president visited the Russian Defense Ministry nearly a week ago, knows perfectly well how Russia helps civilians in Aleppo,” he added.
Konashenkov said that the deaths of any medical personnel who provide care for children and the wounded have more than one dimension. According to the general, targeting a hospital is not only a “violation of international law” but a “grave criminal offense.”
By pure coincidence, an even greater tragedy was averted as buses delivering dozens of Syrian children and their mothers had arrived late to the hospital, according to the spokesman.”
Did the israeli-americans who organised the war crime know about the expected buses arriving at that time? It is the sort of thing these subhumans would do if they did know of these busloads to get a maximum effect for their terrorism. It’s how the sodding things think.
members of the International Committee of the Red Cross are co-conspirators to murder and should be arrested and hunted down like dogs.
US withdraws Aleppo proposals, says no consultations yet – Lavrov
“They have withdrawn their document and have a new one. Our initial impression is that this new document backtracks, and is an attempt to buy time for the militants, allow them to catch their breath and resupply,” Lavrov said.
The minister remarked that there would apparently be no serious discussion of the Syrian crisis with the administration of outgoing US President Barack Obama.
Kerry delivered a new plan for an Aleppo settlement to the Russians on Friday. Lavrov earlier said that the plan involved the withdrawal of all US-backed rebel forces from eastern Aleppo to Idlib province, with everyone remaining designated as terrorists and legitimate targets for the offensive of the Syrian Army. On Tuesday, the US and Russia were supposed to discuss particular details of the withdrawal.”
It’s quite clear the zionazis are only interested in continuing their terrorist war against Syria for greater israel and are simply supporting their terrorist mercs with these negotiations.
The hospital attack and the pindo retraction of their last proposal (described in the article posted previously) are uncountably part of a coordinated zionazi plan.
Lavrov Calls Attack on Russian Hospital in Aleppo a Planned Campaign
“We are convinced that [the attack is a] planned action, planned by those who are trying to preserve their positions in Aleppo, under the shelter of foreign protectors”, — Lavrov said during a press conference in Moscow.
The minister also added that Moscow is concerned that Western countries incite Syrian opposition to radical actions.
Earlier in the day, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that Russia regrets that international community, including US, downplayed the attack on Russian hospital in Aleppo.
“It is sad that the Western countries that are proud of their fight for human rights and concern about the humanitarian situation both in Aleppo and in Syria in general, in fact, continue to support radicals and extremists.”
Wouldn’t it be possible for the Russian army to protect important potential targets like these with a mobile air defense complex?
It seems like that would be like using a jet or a helicopter to try to stop someone from pulling a hand grenade out of their jacket, and lobbing it over a wall.
Not missile based, but like Phalanx or Goalkeeper. I’ve read somewhere that they introduced an air defence complex that protects paratroopers against anything from the air. IIRC anything between 15 meters and 15 km or thereabout and it’s dropped with the paratroopers, manned. It combines missiles and machine guns. Such a complex should be able take care of mortars. Or?
They would use counter artillery systems that track incoming mortars and shells, and then fire back to the source.
Impractical inside urban environment with basically 3-60 front for attackers.
This was a highly professional mortar attack.
Not unlike the mortar attack on the CIA base annex in Benghazi. Immediate direct hits.
Coordinates done by experts, not ragheads and radical moderates.
“Counter Rocket, Artillery, and Mortar, abbreviated C-RAM or Counter-RAM, is a set of systems used to detect and/or destroy incoming artillery, rockets and mortar rounds in the air before they hit their ground targets, or simply provide early warning”
Essentially its just traditional ship based defense weaponry which has been moved to land, I knew they could hit rocket / missile and mortar rounds but I always thought that they couldn’t hit fast moving artillery shells. The US used these extensively during the Gulf War to protect their troops from mortar attacks.
The comment above that Putin is dead I don’t believe in a heartbeat.
I read this yesterday on Benjamin Fulford’s site. I have also read somewhere else or seen it on YouTube that Benjamin Fulford isn’t his real name, that he is a Rockefeller man and a disinformation agent.
I thought that laughable too. If he’s a body double he is doing such a brilliant job that he has far surpassed the original. The man has done nothing but increase in stature as an effective and efficient statesman in the last few years.
Are we expected to believe that those types of man grow freely on trees?
I’ve listened to Fulford on numerous occasions and gone from thinking he is mad, to thinking he’s a fraud, to thinking he’s genuine. He was the Forbes chief editor for Asia and son of a Canadian diplomat who grew up in Asia. I think he gets fed disinformation that he doesn’t always filter.
Vladimir V Putin appears to be his old resolute self. No question about that. Putin was very genuine in his deep concern for children and disgust with Western values when he said this year “In the West they cannot protect their children!” He was ostensibly referring to a case in Germany I think where an immigrant had sexually abused a child and was let off for cultural considerations by the judge (or something similar). But in light of pizzagate and the UK and Belgian pedophile elite scandals – what more did Putin know?
So Fulford has gone off half cocked on this one. But a lot of what Fulford says is very interesting.
As for pizzagate- it seems to be the trigger for the elites’ panic over alternative media and a looming crackdown on free speech not seen since McCarthyism.
Given revelations by police in Norway and Canada of moderately high level large pedophile rings involving doctors, teachers, lawyers and politicians, plus at least 55 British football clubs caught up in a pedophile scandal – this sick twisted stuff seems a modus operandi. How better to control high ranking people than sexual perversion of the most vile sort caught on hidden cameras?
Mainstream media personnel featured prominently in lists exposed in the U.K. Jimmy Savile scandal. Maybe this is what explains the lockstep nature of Western propaganda.
Everyone should read this summation of pizzagate: https://dcpizzagate.wordpress.com
Our Lord make haste to help us!
I remember some of those early Fulford videos, and my initial reaction was Fulford has gone way out on the limb, and using a pruning saw on a part of that limb closer to the trunk than he is. And why does he say, “…CIA sources said.” so often throughout his updates? It kind of makes you go…hmm.
I’ve been thinking a lot about this “pizza-gate” fandango, I mean who hasn’t is also probably disconnected from the real world and is jacked-in exclusively to MSM/ AI. I’m not going to go on at length…I mean I was in an earlier version, but decided to run this abbreviated version against the longer rant that no one needs to hear. I’ll just posit this…what if, when we pull hard on this loose thread that is pizza-gate, and then we see Mars wobble in its orbit? Rather disconcerting, and what I’m getting at is not one of us knows yet how deep this rabbit hole goes, or how far afield is its extent.
Are not the New York Times and The Washington Post, as part of the CIANN disinformation enterprise, similarly ‘beneficiaries’ of CIA planted/mandated lies? We can only hope that Fulford is acting unwittingly as a conduit of CIA ‘(mis)information’.
Fulford’s own personal story is so over the top and so many of his dire predictions, duds that turn out to be dead wrong pulp fiction stuff, I’ve long ago delegated him to the ranks of fiction writers, entertaining enough to some, but I can’t take anything he says seriously anymore as he seems to weave all of his tall tales out of thin cloth and offers nothing solid to back up any of his wild claims. Don’t know exactly what his bag is, money, attention or maybe he’s simply just plain nuts?
I see it mostly Obama cabinet frustration when their Operation Barbarossa became fiasco. Now all what’s left is pathetic infantile reaction in EU parliament and UN.
Stop threatening and just take strong measures to prevent Russians from suffering the same abuses again and again, and simply retaliate at an equal measure to make them too fearful to do it again. Punish those who hurt Russia.
Remember, they are cowards, and that is one reason why they always get several other countries to help and going along with them, even when attacking a small or greatly weakened country.
Russia can do things to scare them and upset their sense of control. They are control freaks and strongly arrange and plan things for a long time – including provocations and their so-called “mistakes”.
If Russia keeps acting and acting and doesn’t slow down when they get nervous, they won’t be able to control things and their plans will start to crumble. They will panic if they don’t know what Russia is and will do.
No threats have as yet been issued by Russia. Only the facts on the ground given and all the culprits behind it clearly revealed. Putin has been dead silent, which may say way more than anything that he might have otherwise declared. We’ll just have to wait and see what his response is in action. One thing is for sure, the US empire has completely lost it’s F-ing mind doing this and we are living in the most dangerous times since the second world war. Just pray for sanity to prevail and that we are not all toasted because of Obama’s (or those behind him) utter stupidity.
I would like to bring to your consideration ( especially “armchair warriors” here always claiming ofr Russia to act/attack ) the following article published at Katehon by Luis Lázaro Tijerina as “A Critique of Stephen R. Covington’s “The Culture of Strategic Thought Behind Russia’s Modern Approaches to Warfare”
“Modern operational art”
Since I am not a military analyst, what I found interesting is what the author is saying about the remaining Soviet characteristic of the Russian Army, in the sense of cohesiveness coming from the strong unity through feeling of class solidarity, which was/is also a factor of its epic invincivility, a feeling that could well be erased when the so intensely sought erase of any kind of ideology will be reached.
Through the links below, one can go to a translation of an article on Russian Military Doctrine by General Valery Gerasimov which I found also a MUST READ to understand the present and future challenges of modern warfare and that helps also to understand the last changes made by President Putin on the security/armed forces:
And, as optimistic aproach on the uniqueness of each country strategic defense and not less uniqueness of each war/armed conflict and the inevitable uncertainty of any war outcome:
Elsie, thank you for finding that great article. I agree it is a “must read.” I will spend time with it. Also want you to know that I appreciate very much your time spent on translating a really good article about the economic progression leading to disastrous consequences for the “just plain people” in the U.S., and western Europe as well, apparently. Much obliged!
Your welcome, dear GrandmaR, I feel also moito obrigado that you can appreciate my comments even when being, not only geographically but also ideologically, in the anthipods.
I do the effort with pleasure the more if anyone find it useful, obviously not whenever, for whatever reasons, someone decides to throw it to the dust bin.
Well, last comment to GrandmaR was mine.
Yes, this is nothing but a thinly veiled threat to NATO.
No two ways about it.
Russia is already working on this… It is very simple, Russia has begun fomenting ties with ISI in Pakistan and begun the vetting process to see where arm shipments are viable. When the go ahead is green lit, operatsiy zioloniy, heavy arms will reach the Taliban in Afghanistan. The US has withdrawn most logistical support. When arms flow in from Badakhchan, US troops will suffer unacceptable losses in areas that have been quiet since taliban withdrawal. With a presence of roughly 7500 troops, the attacks and focus on control of Kabul would result in US expulsion from the region. If Morell wants to send Russians home in bodybags, then we will send Americans home in bodybags. Only difference is we will stay in Syria they will leave Afghanistan, Eurasia is our ultimate destiny
I am awaiting President-elect Donald Trump to take office, to see what his position is in these anti-Assad “moderate Syrian rebels”. They are all terrorists who, according to firsthand acccounts, come in and tell the allies what they want to hear when they get hungry or cold and need a hot meal and some more ammo.
I don’t think there are any “moderate” Syrian rebels; they are a figment of the imagination. Wishful thinking by Obama and his ridiculous Secretaries of State Clinton and Kerry, and other fools educated beyond their intelligence such as Senator John McCain.
Yet the American people have no idea whatsoever of these proceedings.
Idk. I just think actions speak louder than words. Why waste time warning and give the guilty chance toescape
I love him.
Finally somebody, who calls out the names.
