Okay, now we know: yesterday panic about a US attack on Syria was all about the “invincible Tsahal” making the usual symbolic attack against some “Iranian” forces in Syria. These guys were so totally macho and cool that they did not even bother informing Russia, and so totally loyal that they did inform the USA. The final score is as follows:
- 5 out of 8 missiles intercepted (you can see some photos of the results of this, basically failed, attack here)
- 14 personnel killed, including 2 Iranians
- The invincible Tsahal once again proves that besides murdering Palestinian civilians en masse it can also fire a few missiles from Lebanese airspace
- Besides the already galactic-size Zio-egos nobody will be impressed
- For some mysterious reason, anti-Semitism will continue to be “alarmingly on the rise” worldwide
That latter phenomenon should really worry us tremendously as it can lead to such disgusting scenes as this cowardly stoning of a peaceful Israeli military vehicle by a Palestinian terrorist:
The lesson here for all of us is simple: don’t panic or even reach conclusions if/when the US attack on Syria is reported.
First, there is a fair chance that Trump might decide to go for a symbolic attack. That would be anything under 100 cruise missiles fired at 1-4 targets (and their associated air defenses) and would probably not include government buildings in Damascus.
Second, if there is a real, full-scale US attack on Syria, expect no less than several hundred cruise missiles fired in the first wave of attack, followed by a probably smaller, but possibly similar sized, second wave. Should that happen you will get first reports of not Syrian air defenses engaging the incoming missiles, but also Russians ones. There is a strong possibility that at this point Russian military personnel will be reported killed and that, in turn, will probably lead to Russian counter-strikes on US forces with everything that implies.
By the way, there is no reason for the USN to risk their surface ships in such an attack. The US has converted several SSBNs (“boomers” with sea-launched ICBMs) into a SSGN (cruise missile carrier) each one of them capable of firing 154 Tomahawk cruise missiles. I don’t know where they currently are deployed, all I am saying that the US does have options, including launching a large amounts of cruise missiles from submarines which would be far less exposed to Russian retaliation, especially if the Navy provides the US SSGNs with aircover (which it definitely can).
Bottom line: don’t mistake the Israeli (or French) clowns for the US armed forces.
As for Syria, let’s see what happens today at the UNSC meeting called by Russia.
This was the second jump for the grass hoper and third one could be IT !
May Allah/The Lord God Almighty help us the righteous muslims , Christians, jews until the arrival of the Messiah son of Meryem :)
The Kurd from Kurdistan
The more I hear from the kurds, the less I like hearing from them.
Why is that?
Because expecting the ‘arrival of the Messiah son of Meryem’ is the same as expecting the arrival of Messiah ben Joseph (Mashiach ben Yoseph or Messiah ben Joseph (Hebrew: משיח בן־יוסף Mašīaḥ ben Yōsēf), also known as Mashiach bar/ben Ephraim. They are on the same page.
Son of Myriam.He s referring to Jesus according to muslim parlance.Mashiaj ben Yussef is a term recently taken by certain strands of “zionist christians” that calls themselves mesianic and identify said character with the first coming of Jesus.On his second coming that would be Mashiaj Ben David.There are a number of common themes running through all three abrahamic religions escathological themes.He sounds like a nice dude,no call for personal offenses.
What did he say that could possibly offend you?
Righteous Jews? Where? Where are they? I’m hard pressed to name just one.
Kurds, like the Jews are also known for their duplicity.
There is one. Norman Finkelstein. Great guy.
There are no good Kurds though.
There’s nothing wrong with the orthodox ‘jew’ (Iewe). the problem is with the pharisees:
You get the odd good ex-pharisee like Norman Finkelstein but the practicing pharisees are all rotten to the core and enemies of humanity. They openly proclaim their satanism not just with the talmud but also their actions, and it’s no coincidence that their flag features an occult symbol never associated with David.
Kurds appear to be ‘Israel MkII’ but without the Nakba, their willingness to steal land and claim it for themselves is an act of dishonest thieves.
There are many Jews in Israel opposing Zionazism, and in the Diaspora, defending Corbyn against the phony ‘antisemitism’ slurs and supporting BDS and other peaceful means to oppose Zionazism etc. However their existence is deliberately suppressed, by the Zionazi elite controlled Western fakestream media sewer. Moreover the decent Jews face vicious communal abuse, as ‘self-hating Jews’, and even, ludicrously, as ‘antisemites’ eg the Jewdas group with whom Corbyn took seder supper. I fully subscribe to the plain truth that the Zionazi elite are almost without peer as Evil swine, but by abusing ALL Jews you just play into the Zionazi elite’s propaganda tropes.
What is a jew,it is not a ethnicity or nationality.it is not a religion as their god is only theirs.So what is a jew?
all jews practise Kol Nidrim,so there are no good jews,not as far as christians are concerned.
Real descendants of Israel are Palestinians.That is the reason they are being slaughtered and the whole world is responsible,just watcing.
Honestly I agree with everything you said. Whatever this “Jew” thing means, many of them have a twisted world view. Now I’m not going to say all Jew’s are bad, or that no good Jew’s exist. However the problem is within their religious beliefs. To believe that you are chosen by God almighty not based on merit, but because of the supposed tribe you were born into, is one of the most heinous ideas that could exist. What kind of belief is this??? And what kind of God, who created all of creation, but He supposedly intends guidance only for a specific tribe???
Now when it comes to the Muslim point of view, we believe, that the promise that God almighty gave was for the prophet Abraham(as) and his descendants. That doesn’t mean only the descendants of Abraham(as) can be guided, but that the righteous amongst them will guide humanity to true monotheism. So that covenant applied to the righteous prophets amongst the children of prophet Abraham, not only the sons of prophet Jacob(who was named Israel), but any of the descendants of prophet Abraham(as). But the Jew’s try to take this covenant and apply it to their entire tribe!!! To us this is an obvious fabrication. That covenant applied to the righteous ones among the descendants of Abraham (as), such as the prophet Ishmael, Issac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Aaron, David, Solomon, Zachariah, john the Baptist, the Messiah Jesus, and prophet Muhammad(pbuta). There’s others but those are some off the top of my head. So the way I see it is this Jewish cult is trying to steal the legacy of the righteous prophets. Their rabbis changed their religion, into what it currently is today.
What they did, would be the same as if all the Arabs after the prophet Muhammad(saw) claimed that they were the chosen people of God!!! Obviously this is false, as history shows us their were many unjust Arabs, who the true Creator would never be pleased with. Many even in our current time. The same thing with this group of Jew’s who claim to be the descendants of the prophet Jacob(as). In their ego trip they claimed something that is a lie against their own souls, and now the world is seeing the fruit of that destructive belief that they deluded themselves into believing.
Sadly because of this egotistical belief, many of them inadvertently worship themselves, or their supposed tribe, instead of God almighty. They will never notice this because they enjoy this high they get from believing that they are “chosen.”
Ahmed, I was somewhat bemused years ago when I saw that Abe Foxman of the hyper-defamatory ‘Anti Defamation League’ in the USA, had claimed that Hitler’s crime was not genocide but deicide, the murder of God. This article is pretty darn hard to find anymore, but my elementary study of Talmudic, Rabbinical, Orthodox Judaism since has produced a number of other references where eminent Rabbis and Torah Sages have proclaiming just such a Divinity for the Jews.
Of course, not all Jews share these beliefs, just the powerful ones in Israel, like the followers of Ovadia Yosef, the founder of the highly influential Shas (Talmud)Party, a veritable king-maker in Israeli politics. His funeral attracted the largest ever crowd in Israel, several hundred thousand strong. He once opined to his followers, during a sermon, that ‘The goyim were only put on Earth to serve the Jews’, to much thigh-slapping merriment from his bearded and side-locked followers.
It is very hard to obtain a copy of the Talmud for a goy to study. Indeed in that tract it is proclaimed that the sentence for a goy studying the Talmud is death. The secrets of Judaism, even the more arcane, but ones that ARE adhered to by powerful Israeli and Diaspora groups, would be a real eye-opener to audiences in the West, but would, naturally, be simply denied amidst a tsunami of abuse concerning ‘antisemitism’. It is quite a racket.
@Mulga: Thanks for the follow up information and the additional references. Yup I agree, they have an excellent racket going. I would love to get my hands on the Talmud. Just from the little bit I know about it, it sounds like a horrible book. I know that book mentions how if the “goyim” read this book they should be subjected to death. I also know the horrible things they say against the Messiah Jesus(as) and his blessed mother Mary(as). I hate repeating this, because it pisses me off, but I think they say that Prophet Jesus(as) is boiling in hell, in a cauldron of his own feces. They also say demeaning things about the blessed Virgin, the mother of the Messiah(as). I don’t think we will see a translation of that book anytime soon Mulga, and if they do, with how tricky these people are, I’m sure they would leave out the things I mentioned above. The truth is they hate Prophet Jesus(as) because he exposed their hypocrisy. I guess they would label Prophet Jesus(as) as a “self hating jew.”
“To believe that you are chosen by God almighty not based on merit”
Many Evangelical Christians also believe thatsalvationis not based in merit. That belief is based in Ephesians 2 v 8&9:
8.For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9. Not of works, lest any man should boast.
Religion is an older form of genuine fake news.
To be honest, i’m not an expert on evangelical Christianity so I don’t know what to say in regards to the quoted bible verse. However it should be obvious that both faith, and deeds are important. If a person is truly moved by a true and good faith, its natural that it would shine outwards and make his deeds good and true. The two have a symbiotic relationship, its not a one or the other situation.
For example Prophet Jesus(as) was a man who had a pure faith in God Almighty, to such a high degree that many of us cant fathom it. This faith, and trust that he had in God shone outwards and was obvious in his actions and treatment of others. It should be rather obvious why the two go hand in hand.
If you only do works, without faith, the works will be effected negatively. And if you only have faith, without works, the faith will be effected negatively.
I’m agnostic but also appreciate Dwayne’s deist comment below here http://thesaker.is/so-it-was-the-invincible-tsahal/#comment-508002
“However it should be obvious that both faith, and deeds are important.”
These Evangelicals hold that deeds are immaterial for salvation to occur but, as with all religion, there is much controversy e.g:
I was recently accused of blasphemy by a self described Orthodox Christian who says he believes not only in the incarnation of Christ but in the reincarnation of man. Into the bargain, you apparently only take Jesus as a prophet and the Jews only ever wanted to kill him.
No wonder humanity has problems – religion is a very peculiar concept.
You are fake news.
That doesn’t specify any particular race or ethnicity,only an individual that surenders to god,and not jew god eather.
You are all like ostrich with his head in sand and ass in the air.Getting butt stroked daily and asking for more.
Stop trying to look or sound inteligent and look at the facts.Facts don’t lie.
It is called the “master race philosophy” and it is very common. By luck of group membership, usually conferred by birth but not always, you are better than others and your life is worth more. There are dozens of examples throughout history and it has a 100% failure rate. The master race always ends up getting decimated. No exceptions.
Jews are the same as other humans. No better, no worse. The proof of that is that they fall for the same master race nonsense and the same excuses offered up by their religious and political leaders.
1) We really are the master race. All those others clearly were not but trust us, we really are.
2) This time it’s different or our situation is different.
3) God is on our side or god has chosen us.
4) We are more intelligent.
All those have been trotted out by various religious and political leaders over the millennia again and again. They all end up getting decimated. 100% of the time. Unless the Jewish community starts calling out their religious and political leaders when they utter this nonsense they will be decimated. There are a few that do, like Gilad Atzmon, but they are too few and far between to have an impact.
The appeal of the master race philosophy is that you don’t have to be world class in art, music, academics, sports or anything. Just being part of this group makes you better than others and your life worth more. Very appealing and seductive and very wrong. Fatally wrong.
Sadly it claims a lot of very bright humans. The hubris kicks in and they actually start believing their own lies. Albert Einstein said Germany was a “nation of philosophers” and he was right. Very well educated and bright with a strong philosophical bent. If a nation of philosophers can fall for the master race nonsense they who is kidding who that “it can’t happen here”?
It is happening in Israel. Seize living room to the east, forced confinement in a ghetto (Gaza) for millions, economic exploitation and a caste system with the master race on top. To not see the parallels between modern Israel and 1930s Germany requires wilful blinders of epic proportions.
If there is a god I’m thinking it must be Loki. The mischievous troublemaker of Nordic legend who plays “Groundhog Day” with humans to see just how stupid we are and how many times they will fall for the same lies.
@Mulga. Thanks for mentioning the existence of “The Righteous Jews” of Israel — the ones whose presence is never mentioned in the MSM, and who get spat upon when they stand with their banner, Stop the Occupation. Theirs is the common fate of all just people in an unjust society. But, like the little grains of mustard seed which are a metaphor for The Kingdom of God, they work slowly but surely to “purify the dialect of the tribe”. Yesterday, looking at an inscription to the memorial to ethnically cleansed Jews of WW2, in front of the rebuilt Synagogue of Lvov in Eastern Poland (now part of Ukraine), I was pleased to see that one of Israel’s Righeous Jews, a dear friend of mine who has been sometimes spat on in public and called filthy names while standing up for justice for Palestinians in Israel, has had her words inscribed on that very memorial to Jews in Poland. Justice is justice for all, and when it speaks it speaks to all. Her words:
“… my Lwow is everywhere; it speaks to everyone who has been forced from their village or town, everyone who has lost their family in violent circumstances”. — Janina Hescheles-Altman
It is basic commonsense to reject the idea that all the people of any group, racial, tribal, religious, ideological etc, think and act alike, and are therefore all good or bad. Every human community is varied, with good, bad and indifferent individuals, and they often change throughout life, or in differing social situations.
So I would not say that ‘the Jews are Good’, or ‘the Armenians are bad’ etc. I would assert that, simply in my opinion (I cannot claim infallibility)that certain Rightwing Jews, secular fascist and religious fanatic, are among the most Evil people alive. I like to call them ‘Zionazis’, because, in my opinion, Zionism is to the Jews as Nazism was to the Germans, and the current Zionazis display many of the characteristics (extreme arrogance, racist supremacism, the desire to steal other people’s lands as lebensraum, the ready recourse to violence, real sadism inflicted on those they see as untermenschen etc)of the German Nazis who persecuted their forefathers seventy odd years ago. What percentage of Jewry in total is this type, I cannot say, but they appear to be a majority in Israel. But the leadership of the Israeli state, political and religious, are as vile creatures, I believe, as exist on Earth at present. And they will, unless stopped somehow, destroy Israel and quite possibly the entire world.
Now that’s offensive= to all of humanity, not just Jews and Kurds
Are u ok ? Where r u from?
Have u not seen real semitic jews in yemen iran libya , where my brothers are ?
Duplicity? You mean Salahaddin ? My grandgrand father who stopped the Crusade massacres?
I can give u my location and we can face ur duplicity in the street.. but i doubt it unless u have gangs like the duplicity filled israeli friends the turks?
Reply back , we can meet?
The honest KURD from THE KURDISTAN where i LIVE ..
come and get me!
Ignore these losers. Most people are smart enough to judge individuals and not groups or races. A pity many here are not.
The Kurds are partners with Israel: https://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/the-disappearing-tankers-that-carry-kurdish-oil-to-israel-1.5980420
Mordechai Vanunu, another righteous jew, Gilad Atzmon another one. Stop.
A very little people those righteous jews. Sadly only three imho!
Don’t forget Benjamin Freedman: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HhFRGDyX48c
There are many more anti-zionist Jews, but they’re hard to spot in a ZOS (zionist-occupied society).
If you believe that “Messiah” will came and mechanically solve all of our problems, than you are mistaken.
“Kingdom of God is within you” – Jesus Christ
Kingdom will not came from outside, but from inside of human being.
This being said, i wish you god luck and i wish a new and happy Kurdistan for all misplaced Kurds.
May Allah/The Lord God Almighty guide the misguided Kurdish leadership to the straight path and save the Kurds from becoming cannon fodder of the empire.
That photo above should replace the Tiananmen Tank Man icon.
A brave child unafraid of the Israeli murder machine.
Ironic, Palestinian David vs Goliath.
My reaction precisely. Except that the original Goliath was nowhere near as powerful and invulnerable, and the original David was a bit bigger and stronger.
The tiananmen tank man icône show thé discipline of the PLA, which prefered to slow down instead of killing a civilian. Imagine the same scene in western democracies. What would hv happened then?
In this picture we see how the invincible army can now use there metkava, only against kids with stones. Against hizbullah they were defenseless
The Tian An Men ‘tank man’ was a drunken fool who the tank driver made great efforts not to run over, before tank-man was dragged away for his own safety. If it had been an IDF tank, and tank-man a Palestinian, he would have just been run over (like Rachel Corrie)and been hailed as a ‘hero’ by the Israeli Right.
And his killer hailed as a hero by the Israeli Right, in fact.
Thank you for remembering Rachel Corrie. Everyone else seems to have forgotten her.
US not ruling out military action against Syria after reports of chemical weapons use – Mattis
“Speaking with reports on Monday, Mattis said he wouldn’t “rule out anything right now” after being asked if the US was mulling strikes against Syrian President Bashar Assad.”
When I saw reports last night about spanky and micron coordinating over the phone, followed immediately by reports of missile strikes on a Syrian air base, I expected these to be just the initial reports out and that a much larger attack was under way. Glad that wasn’t the case and it turned out it was just another provocation from the world’s foremost cowards.
Interesting they used f-15s. These are israel’s “heavy air artillery”, they can carry a heavier load, therefore a smaller number of aircraft are needed to launch the same number of missiles. Fewer aircraft, harder to detect them pre missile launch and begin counters. I have not checked, it could also be the f-15s can use ag missiles the f-16 can’t and israel wanted to try these against Syrian defenses, since the results of the last israeli f-16/missile attack were somewhat less than auspicious.
A u.s./nato attack on Syria could still be in the works, the israeli attack being used to test defenses and gather data.
The US is ‘officially’ withdrawing from Syria in response to demands made by Donald Trump 5 days ago. All decisions and planning for the US move are long in the making, while everything you presently see or hear in official or alternative media concerns a marketing operation.
For Donald Trump it is not a moral but a ‘business’ decision, specifically addressing a political problem with the UK ‘Octopus organizing a Blue Wave against Republi-goons by means of institutionalized vote rigging during upcoming Congressional elections, and so he has issued orders to his Generals that they declare bankruptcy thus making it appear as though the US is officially out, even though it is not. The Pentagon has it’s own interests and no President has the power to force the Generals to abandon them.
Basically, Donald Trump is twisting himself into a giant orange pretzel to maintain support with his base.
What’s good is this maneuvre reduces the chances of a direct confrontation between nuclear powers in the shorter term, and somewhat changes the dynamics between the US and Russia.
What’s not good is there will be yet another ‘rebranding’ in which a number of US forces will come under auspices of mainly UK and NATO Hommandoes who have already been in charge of the majority of proxy terrorist forces West of the Euphrates, since not long after Donald Trump was elected and demanded the US end it’s direct support for ISIS.
Of course Frenchie Hommandoes will also be there but when they do issue orders no one will listen. 5 secret Frog bases are already in the Kurdish controlled north-east of Syria, as announced by Turkey and reported by Thierry Meyssan on April 2nd.
Turkey publishes the whereabouts of five secret military bases in Syria that belong to France
This means: 1) the Kurds are definitely out of S.O.L. since the US will more or less abandon them in favour of Turkey, at least officially; while 2) the UK-EU-NATO and Octopus Deep State will now become fully responsible for Bookchin inspired Kurd-social-justice-warriors-with-guns east of the Euphrates and who, by the way, have no local support from the People they preside over like gangsters; and also 3) this appears to pit the UK/France and NATO against Turkey, without fullsome support from the Pentagon, and therefore more deeply into the arms of Russia.
But the alliance of Turkey and Russia is not what it seems. Nor are the recent sharp words between Turkey and France. Very soon we will see if Erdogan’s troopers will be willing to directly confront French led terrorist forces on the road to Manbij, since they are already there and standing in Erdogan’s way. What is most likely is the French will manage a withdrawal of Kurds from northern Syria and thus hand this territory over to Turkey, as has been done so many times before as when ISIS would suddenly morph into the SDF or YPG.
The situation of the world today is almost identical to that which existed in the run up to World War I. Back then the UK wanted to destroy it’s competitors, including Russia, and especially to tear up the Ottoman Empire, so as to seize it’s unimaginably massive reserves of oil.
Imagine how much oil the Turks would control today if the Ottoman Empire was still in existence! This is the basis of the debt Erdogan believes the UK owes to Turkey, and which the British Deep Staters have undoubtedly promised to repay to Turkey, with complete insincerity of course, just as they once offered Constantinople to Russia for their participation in WWI.
The problem for the UK back then was the Young Turks who controlled the Ottoman Empire wanted to be British allies, not German, so the UK controlled Deep State and specifically Rothschild Winston Churchill organized an event in which German battlecruisers were turned over to the Ottomans, and who with German crews subsequently shelled Odessa under an Ottoman flag and thus brought the Turks into the war against Russia.
We all know what happened to the Ottoman Empire after that, nor do I need to mention effects of WWI on Russia and Germany. This is the reason Russia is so careful about it’s involvement in both Syria and Ukraine and also explains why some within Germany would very much like to turn away from the Perfidious Empire and towards Russia.
I would go so far as to say the UK Octopus values Balance of Power to such the extent that they are willing to see Germany and Russia become allies after a long and drawn out struggle. Thinking of Orwell’s description of a Tripolar World Order in the book 1984 I beleve this is actually the plan, or at least it is understood the world of tommorow will look very much like that described by Orwell in his seminal book.
What should boggle everyone’s minds is the extent to which UK based Deep State networks existing in 1914 were capable of arranging to have Imperial Germany hand over battlecruisers to Ottomans. The influence and power of this organization, based on the ancient Intelligence networks of Venice, is still very much on top today.
The Spy Chiefs of Renaissance Venice: Intelligence Leadership in the Early Modern World
Exactly the same strategy employed ahead of World War I is being used today by the ‘Venetian’ Deep State Octopus, vis a vis Russia and Turkey. The UK based Octopus wants to push Russia and Turkey together in hopes they can later be turned against one another. Their strategy involves attempting to trick the Russians into believing Turkey is a reliable ally for them, and thus to have Russia overextend itself as a result, yet the trick is not working because Russia knows and remembers their recent history if only because it was so terrible.
Erdogan and the AKP are spawn of the UK controlled Muslim Brotherhood, itself a forerunning organization of the Young Turks, and thus no calculation made by Russia can ever include he or Turkey as a reliable friend or partner of Russia.
Thank you for this exposition of the more-than-a-century long plans and moves.
I wanted to ask why you used so much pejorative language and terminology. It seems to detract from your comment.
One tomahawk costs $1.87M, so two salvos of (as few as) 250 missiles would cost nearly $1 billion. The total stock of the US navy is 3500, so they’d have to replenish it very soon, increasing the final cost.
The goal for the MIC is to spend 1 Trillion Dollars per year. So, what’s a Billion? And American audiences love to see missiles and bombs (the bigger, the better) blast “distant lands”. There is no such thing as collateral damage in their mind. It’s just USA, USA, USA!
“Take him out!” is Senator (girlyman) Graham’s morning chant.
This is the simplicity Americans call their right as #1, the Best, the Greatest.
An inadequate President, empowering an inadequate General (Maddog Mattis), fueled on the psychotic impulses of NSC adviser Bolton, doing criminal Bibi’s handiwork is soon to be quite an event.
Larch, the sheer psychotic viciousness of the Zionazis and their stooges is perfectly illustrated in today’s UK Fraudian, Zionazi Central since its Sorosification, and the truly deranged and psychopathic aggression and lying hypocrisy of Simon Tisdall’s hateful spew, demanding that Syria be bombed to rubble, as in Libya, and to Hell with the consequences of confronting Russia and Iran. The poisonous fruits of forty plus years of total Zionazi control of the West are ripening. I really think that Russia ought to publicly state that the first death of a Russian by Zionazi or Zionazi stooge aggression in Syria will see MOSSAD HQ in Herzliya vapourised. Hit the Evil Ones, and leave civilian untouched, in contrast to the Evil Ones’ own tactics. And offer a bounty of one million each for every live White Helmet thug delivered to Syria to face justice. That might attract a few American bounty hunters. And ten million for their Western controllers.
The UNSC has two meetings scheduled. The second one is about the “Chemical Attack”, and most assuredly stars the Princess of Propaganda and Hate, Nikki Haley, to be seconded by UK, perfidy their specialty, and the wannabe French, who love a bombing run at barefoot peoples in MENA to prove their nation, under social collapse, still exists.
The machinations of the collapsing west are indeed nauseating. I wish I live long enough to see the day they are no more able to continue.
It will be very interesting to see what comically ludicrous justifications the Israelis, Americans, French, and British spew in the UN Security Council meeting to justify their latest act of aggression against Syria.
In fact, it’s really amazing (in a warped way) how these nations in general can routinely commit brazen aggressive acts against Syria–and then have the arrogance to accuse other countries of aggression or violating “international law.”
This latest missile attack is just another reminder that there is no international law.
Indeed, the greatest rogue states and aggressor nations on the planet hide behind the rule of law, democracy, or human rights to disguise their malevolent nature.
They just declared that they don’t need any justification.
Moscow: Israel’s Use of Force Against Palestinians in Gaza ‘Unacceptable’
“According to the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Information and Press Department, as a result of the Israeli army’s actions, including with the use of firearms, to suppress these protests on April 6-7, 10 Palestinians were killed, including one journalist and two teenagers, over a thousand were poisoned with tear gas or injured. Thus, the total number of dead Palestinians in the past two weeks of mass protests has reached 30 people, the ministry report says.
“On the morning of April 9, Israeli aircraft caused several missile strikes on facilities in Gaza. Considering that the indiscriminate use of force against the civilian population is absolutely unacceptable, we once again call upon the Palestinians and Israelis to refrain from steps that will provoke further growth of dangerous tension, ” the ministry said.”
Russia has repeatedly condemned the israeli attacks on Palestinians, and no doubt israel would love to see a u.s. or nato air strike targeting Russian personnel specifically.
First wave will be 350 cruise missiles. Second wave will be 200.
Government buildings, all airstrips, barracks and other Syrian infrastructure like water and electrical utility, to create as much chaos and trouble to stability among the people and resentment against Assad.
They will also blow up whatever homes Assad and his family possess.
It will be as close to decapitation as possible.
Here’s the latest from Infowars.
Saker and team: what will Russia do? We can’t predict but if this isn’t a phony war, if I were Russia I’d get angry and strike back hard, also against the Master of Trump, Israel. But I don’t know. As Paul Craig Roberts wrote today, they think in war (did they do that with Nazis invading) they can use facts and reason?
Infowars understands that the United States and the UK are readying for potential military action against Bashar Al-Assad by maneuvering attack ships and fighter jets into position off the coast of Syria.
Following the alleged chemical weapons attack in Douma on Saturday, the USS Donald Cook, a guided missile destroyer is in position for any military action within Syria, while 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.
Meanwhile, an RAF operated KC2 tanker, which is used to refuel fighter jets, is also lurking off the coast of Lebanon.
Paul Craig Roberts: https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/04/09/skripal-chemical-attack-accusation-next/
Nevertheless, the Russians again rose to the bait. General Yury Yevtushenko said that as soon as Douma is liberated Russia will send specialists to collect data that will expose the accusation as a fabrication.
As if Washington will care. Washington has already declared that Russia is responsible no matter who did it.
As long as Russia keeps responding to false charges, Washington’s strategy of keeping Russia on the defensive responding to accusations will continue to work.
I cannot repeat enough for everyone, read what Paul Craig Roberts is saying in his articles.
Forget about ‘justice’, ‘truth’, ‘rightness’, ‘international law’, etc…
Russia is under attack. Dirty and agresive attack.
‘Partners’ will not stop at anything until they put Russia on its knees.
Anyone who is denying this, is simply delusional.
And it is going to be worse, every single day.
Forget about World Cup nonsense and be prepared for war. It is closer than many think.
Yes I thing west is ready for it. This is the decisive moment, there is no room and time left for Russia. We need to see yesterday’s Israeli attack on Homs as a precursor for what is coming. It was just a scratch or poking the bear, if you will. Just to test the reaction. So far no solid reaction from the bear. Minds are confused it seems. 48 hours announcement just made by Trump is actually seems to be a deadline for the Russians. Agree with us for the removal of Iran out of Syria or else. Things are getting intense as we speak. Will Russia cave in under the nonvenomous and coordinated pressure by the West? Initial reaction of Russia is not very inspiring. Again I believe this could be the “make or break” moment not only for Russia but the multi-polar world project in general. If Russia ducks in, forget about Double-Helix. OBOR may continue but it will take much longer time to accomplish. With Russia being out of the equation, Chine is on its own to fight the empire. Will she win the fight? That is the question.
It is long past time that any such attack by the USA was met by a precisely equivalent attack ON the USA.
Why should syrians blame Assad for a US bombing? This makes no sense at all, a likely outcome is that they will became even more in anger with Anglozion, if possible. Not mention that Syrians are already expecting this, seven years of war made them very realists, and I guess they don’t read WP or NYT insanities. But if after first salvo they wouldn’t see any russian reaction, then they could blame Russia too.
What is the possibility that the main objective of this attack, coming from the Mediterranean, was indeed to cause the Syrians and Russians to ‘mistake the Israeli (or French) clowns for the US armed forces’?
In the event that this mistake would happen and somebody fired at a U.S. ship, then the U.S. would have its excuse to bomb Syria in ‘self-defense’.
Was wondering that too.. isnt the mossad motto – by way of deception thou shalt do war ?
It’s happened before. USS Liberty.
Groundhog Day. Over and over and over again.
Is this one of the probable atacking vessels?
Did they change the crew since april 2014 ?
Do they have enough pampers on board in case a russian An2 lurks over the horizon?
But apparently USS Donald Duck has now been joined by USS Baboon.
Question: If a sub fires cruise missiles from underwater, doesn’t the ring like a five alarm fire on the sonar? Don’t the Russians have subs of their own in the Mediterranean? And if a sub would be attacking, then wouldn’t the Russians be justified in sinking any surface ships in the area anyways, since they would be potential aggressors.
Seems to be only a somewhat less risky strategy for confrontation.
Yes, yes and yes.
Looks like there may well be an attack by the US tonight – extent and targets unknown. Trump, Mattis, and Bolton are stirring the pot.
Trump is a vacuous sou,l with no beliefs other than in his own superiority, who lashes out wildly and can be swayed by anyone who strokes his ego in the correct way.
Hopefully there will be no unfortunate miscalculations that endanger us all.
“As for Syria, let’s see what happens today at the UNSC meeting called by Russia.”
There’s no need to wait that long. I can say right now what will happen at that meeting. The US and their stooges will accuse “animal Assad” of the “chemical attack”. And accuse the “evil Russia” of allowing,or at least not stopping it from happening.The US and stooges will threaten punishment for it. The Russians (and Syrians if they are even allowed to speak there) will deny it.The US or stooges,may put forward a “resolution” condemning Syria.And the Russians will veto it. Its very unlikely anyone will hardly mention Israel.And if they do, it will will be to blame the Iranians,Hezbollah,and the Syrians for “forcing” Israel to “defend themselves” by attacking in Syria.Its very unlikely the Russians will “condemn” Israel for the attack.But if they do,and offer a resolution condemning Israel.The US will veto it and Israel will accuse them all of “antisemitism”.I’ve seen this play so many times over the years I can quote in from memory.
Beside all this, I think Russia will speak about the possibility of igniting a world war if the western provocations and sanctions won’t stop!
Sometimes, when I am assailed again by the Evil hypocrisy and insane aggression and violence of the Western thanatocracy, and the uniformly vicious lying and intellectual imbecility of the Western brainwashing system, I feel a slight impulse to actually hope for the final conflict that the fundamentalist psychopaths in Thanatopolis DC are so plainly lusting for.
Is humanity really worth preserving when the best we can produce after a billion years or so of evolution is Theresa May, John Bolton or any Israeli ruling elite thug? I can barely think of a prospect more ghastly than that the Western type prevails, and then escapes into the cosmos, to spread ‘Western Moral Values’ to worlds anew. For many years I could look about and see some hope of progress towards a sane and spiritually rich human global society, where justice, equality and decency reigned. There were many fine and admirable people working to that end. Today, particularly here in Austfailure, I can barely think of a handful of public figures, in politics, the fakestream media, business etc, who are not EVIL psychopathic swine, or boot-licking and servile enablers of the ruling psychopaths. This country, certainly, does not deserve to continue as it is, and most certainly will not do so, if only as the result of ecological collapse, a subject that the ruling elites have declared Thought Crime, either viciously and vigorously denying it, or simply pretending that it doesn’t exist, or is inconsequential, beside the social religion of insatiable greed.
from The Sociopath Next Door:
“…Milgram pointed out that people who disobey destructive authority suffer psychologically too. If courage is acting according to one’s conscience despite pain or fear, then strength is the ability to keep conscience awake and in force despite the demands of authorities to do otherwise.
To illustrate I propose an imaginary society of exactly one hundred adults, in a group that conforms precisely to known statistics. This means that of the one hundred people in my hypothetical society, 4 are psychopaths – they have no conscience. Of the remaining 96 decent citizens, all of whom do have consciences, 62.5% will obey authority more or less without question, quite possibly the authority of one of the more aggressive and controlling sociopaths in the crowd. This leaves 36 people who have both conscience and the strength to bear the burdens of their actions, a little more than a third of the group. These are not impossible odds, but they are not easy ones, either.
tomo, since Milgram forty odd years ago, the situation in Western pathocracies has considerably worsened. Today, after four decades of relentless brainwashing into the neo-liberal capitalist ethos of ‘Every man for himself, and the Devil Market take the hindmost’, people are markedly more greedy, individualistic, materialistic, mock religious without any real spiritual understanding, and atomised. All or nearly all collective institutions like unions, public health, public education, public housing, public broadcasting, public banks and credit unions and public transport has been attacked, gutted of funds and/or privatised. The Right has produced its preferred society, Hobbes’s ‘ bellum omnium contra omnes’, only, as Thatcher decreed, ‘ There is no such thing as society’. After living, for 100,000 years as humans and millions as hominids, in collective, nurturing and mutually beneficial groups, we have been forced by the psychopaths to live entirely alone, hating and fearing others, seeing our families as our property, and viewing others, other groups, other religions, other countries etc, through xenophobic blinkers, as The Enemy. In fact, this may be why the Jewish elites thrive under Free Market capitalism, as Milton Friedman rejoiced-they’ve been preparing for it for 3500 years.
MM, my thoughts as well, I second all of that.
My sentiments as well. Thanks for articulating them!
Speaking at the Security Council, the UK Ambassador said : “…you have something to fear…if you don’t allow an Independent fact-finding mission in Syria …” to verify who was behind the chlorine attack. This is the kind of discussion going on and on, they don’t care what the Russian Ambassador said, they don’t care what the red Crescent said, in fact they have no trust at all in Russia, even if they see the reality with their naked eyes, they don’t believe it, because they not want to accept it. Instead, they are forcing their reality on others, a reality which will lead the world to the brink.
What bullies hate most is when nobody takes any notice of them anymore.
Writes Elijah Magnier @Twitter:
“#Russia is asking #Israel to provide justification for its attack on #T4Airbase which means #Moscow is no longer allowing #TelAviv to deny or ignore its violations in #Syria. #Lebanon confirm 4 #Israel Jets violate its air space at 03:30 am local time.”
“ #Russia & #Iran are not impulsive countries who respond in their own time when it hurts the most. Expl: DeirEzzour’s attack costed US & its main ally #SaudiArabia eastern #Ghouta. So expect something more substantial than a traditional tit-for-tat.”
“One thing is confirmed: #Israel didn’t dare to violate the #Syria/n airspace and bombed the #T4Airbase while violating the Lebanese air space.”
“#Israel will have to face #Russia from today onward: #telAviv won’t get away with it in the future because the Israel jet could have killed #Russian officers at #T4 air base.”
It is important because: 1. #Moscow is taking over the announcement but also the “blessing to reply”. 2. #Israel has violated “red lines” when bombing Russia’s allies operating against #ISIS, #AQ and their allies. Russian won’t leave it w/o a reaction.”
“#Israel is not looking for a war but constantly wanting to attract attention and prove it exists in the bigger game: well it doesn’t and the “naughty” Israel can expect to be strongly hit on the bottom next time.”
“#ISIS attack against on #T4Airbase was defeated despite the use of suicide #VBIEDs and a strong wave of militants. My most plausible guess is #Israel drones covering the sky of #Syria saw ISIS prep and wanted to give it a hand to confuse defenders.”
“#Israel’s attack doesn’t make any sense neither has any strategic value. #Iran has a huge base at #Damascus airport & T4 is one of many operational HQ against Jihadists in #Syria. Bombing the T4 doesn’t undermine Iran or its allies’ military capability.”
“The #T4Airbase is far from the logistic supply of #Hezbollah in #Lebanon or on the borders. Therefore, blowing up an ammunition warehouse doesn’t make sense when planes are leading daily full of ammunition and missiles to support the war against Jihadists.”
“#Israel didn’t dare to violate the #Syria/n airspace and bombed the #T4Airbase while violating the Lebanese air space.”
Firing missiles into Syria IS violating Syrian air space. And killing Syrian people in Syria is an act of war.
Syria and Israel have been in a perpetual state of war for many, many decades. So, doing more war is no big deal to Israel.
The real reason for Israel to attack was to “wet” it for the timid Tower Titan.
It was an ineffectual attack from the getgo, and meant to be.
That way, the big schwang of the Titan will be “the exact justice” served.
Trump has been played by neocons, Israelis, his son-in-law, the Deep State, the “moderates”, the NeverTrumpers, the Russophobes, the psychopaths and sociopaths of the MIC and IC.
He is a “John” (his middle name by the way) who is “turned” by the $20 hookers-pimps of the Shadow Government and globalists. All the while he thinks he is “winning”.
He can’t protect the US borders, but he can sure as hell fire missiles at Syria.
It will be Shock and Awe all over again.
I expect all runways and government buildings to take a hit.
Then what? With no boots on the ground ton back anything up?
Whats the whole sense in that. What your talking about is simply shortsighted if they do do that.
Unlike in the past, the U.S., U.K, France are not going to be able to come to Israel’s rescue. Its simply undoable.
The whole Shia crescent, and Sunni and Christian Syrians and Iraqi Popular Mobilization Forces, Hezbollah, IRGC, Iranian Military ( all elements) would simply engulf the whole region. Who’s going to stop them? The militaries of the west I think are not even close to want to step into that cauldron. The Kurds and small numbers of U.S. Special Forces? A small speed bump.
Israeli nukes? Rest assured that Iran and Israel can both assuredly destroy one another if it came to nukes/ballistic missiles.
It will be a regional war. And the Russians will be in it, maybe not so outwardly as the others I mentioned but they will be there. And the Chinese silk road of cheap weapons to the Syria, Iran and allies side will all but seal the fate of Israel.
Israel is very desperate, by trying to force the hand of the U.S., U.K, France, but I believe it will be told its undoable.
Russia, Iran, Syria need to hit the airfield that the Israeli planes flew from. Otherwise, WWIII is coming. Show NATO that you have red lines, and will react proportionately. If this is not done, the US will be encouraged to hit Syria hard
I do not believe Russia is going to respond.
Russia is very weak today.
Young Russian dream about pro western Russia.
They want to be like young Americans.
Go to Russia and see for yourself.
Not really, only superficially. They wear jeans, tracksuits and stuff (mostly imitations of western brands rather than real) but that doesnt make them pretending to be Americans. Putin won the youth vote. If anything the wealthy younger Russians feel a connection to Continental Europeans, vacations in Nice and Italian riviera, German cars, French wine and clothes, Swiss watches etc, and of course Chinese products in Electronics dominate the Russian market. USA/UK products are not common in Russia.
Weak in what sense? I travel to Russia every summer for the last 5 years and I totally disagree with your statement. Responding with missiles to what is happening is not a sign of strength. The people who’re in charge of Russia are not eugenicist maniacs, they’re not in a harry to destroy the world while hiding in some deep bankers. Russians will do it if there’re no other options but you, me and the rest of us will never get a chance to find out about it. It will be the end.
Lived and worked in Moscow fifteen years.
Russian youth may be influenced by US music but ultimately are extremely patriotic.
durak, it is the Exceptionalists most narcissistic self-delusion that they are the envy of the world. Not to accuse lacon of being one-just a general observation.
…and so it begins… (or I can make it sound less ominous and simply say ‘and so it continues’. This isn’t the first time the zio entity has done this. Since the start of the Syrian conflict israel has struck over 100 times into Syria.
Just this weekend I read how Mr. Trump threatened Mr. Putin, and then overnight when the first reports hit the airwaves that T4 was hit I asked myself if this could be the beginning of a larger conflict? A larger conflict only if the US had struck Syria, but of course israel is exempt.. for now that is.
They will continue to strike, but it’ll be from outside Syria because after losing that F15 in February they fear losing more planes and pilots.
Some will ask why the Russians don’t hit back, others will say that the Russians are allowing the israelis to do as they please in Syria.. No, I don’t think so. Put yourself in the shoes of the people on top.. would you risk a greater conflict just to fire on one or 2 israelI planes. Mr. Putin is trying his best to preserve peace, while offering his Syrian allies everything he possibly can (diplomatic assistance, economic assistance, military assistance, etc). Before you direct your attention to israeli aggression you must consolidate all gains in the battle for your country and get rid of all loose militant enclaves. Once that is done and your house is secure you can then project power further.
Think of it like this: you live in a small, 5 room house. 2 of those rooms are occupied by strangers who you didn’t ask to be there. At first you ask them politely to leave but they ignore you. They then go into your kitchen to help themselves to your food. You fight back and drive them from your kitchen but they retreat to their 2 separate rooms. Then you find out that those strangers aren’t even from your neighborhood, rather they showed up one day and forcefully took over those 2 rooms. You try to fight them but you’re just one. Luckily those 2 strangers are also quarrelling among themselves so you’ve got that going for you. Unfortunately both those strangers receive help from your neighbor who has a house right next door to you. The neighbor wants to take over the land your house is built on, and since he couldn’t get you to sell or otherwise give up your house he got 2 strangers to do the dirty work. So what do you do?
First you fight one stranger but the other shows up, you fight him too but since they are two you’re no match, so you call on your friend, unfortunately your friend lives on the other side of town. He can only do so much, but still sends you some help. Your friend also makes announcements all over town telling how you’re struggling due to your bad neighbor and his hired thugs. The local public starts to see that you’re the victim but very little support comes your way so you pretty much have to fight this battle yourself. Now what do you do?
Well you keep fighting along side the help your friend sent. You decide to tackle the weaker of the 2 strangers. Both of you manage to drive one stranger out of the room he took over but unfortunately that stranger flees into the second room leaving the first room a pile of rubble. Now there’s two of them there, holed up and barricaded. You can’t just storm that room because your favorite pet is held hostage, so you must thread carefully. Sounds crazy doesn’t it, keep reading…
So now what? Do you go and attack the bad neighbor? Destroy part of whole of his house? You can, but you run the risk that you’ll have a big fight on your hands with your bad neighbor, and don’t forget there’s still those 2 thugs holed up in a room of your house. Anytime they can go on the offensive themselves. Your ally reminds you that your bad neighbor has a friend who lives in a big mansion further in town. Attacking the bad neighbor automatically gets the mansion owner turned against you and you will be defeated quickly. So you fight the good fight and little by little you struggle to take back the last room. Inch by inch, meter by meter, that’s your only option, all the while your bad neighbor throws rocks through your windows at you, under the guise that you’re, somehow, doing him harm!!
That’s the situation we currently find ourselves in. Syrians are trying their hardest to eliminate all outside thug forces. Forces paid, trained and supplied by a bad neighbor. Forces who have no vested interest in your house, only the money they receive from that bad neighbor.. Little do they know tho, that when they finish with you they surely won’t be allowed to remain in your house or on your land, the whole point was for them to do the dirty work, your bad neighbor simply wants your land. When you’re gone the thugs will somehow vanish as well, probably they’ll be sent to the other neighbors to repeat the process.
It’s a dirty game, full of back and forth. Diplomacy plays a lot, logistics play a bit part too, but resources are tight, and manpower is limited. Ever wonder why so many Syrian men between the ages of 18-35 fled for Europe? Doesn’t it make sense that these ‘perfect fighting age men’ fled right when their country was in need of them. It was a set up, most likely groups backed by Soros & Co did what they could behind the scenes to get as many ‘fighting age’ guys out of the country to keep the Syrian forces under supplied of the manpower needed to liberate their lands. (At the same time that solved another Soros idea of flooding Europa with men who would run wild destroying Western culture further).
The war for our minds and bodies has started, long ago.. I’d date it to the first Rothchilds who thought up plans to dominate financing/banking. Once they got over that the rest was made easier, because when you can afford to pay ANY price to get what you want, well you’ll always get what you want.
So what can the rest of us do? Stop supporting the enemy, boycott their products or services. Donate to solid reputation individuals or companies. We fight with a vote, we fight with our money. There’s more of us than there are of them, never forget that. Talk to your friends and family, make sure people understand the truth of what’s happening in the world. Turn off the tv and go outside, speak to people. Don’t get into arguments or quarrels, but tell it like it is. Be honest, tell the truth. Be a good standing member of your community. Raise your kids right, build strong families and strong communities. The enemy wants to see us small and divided. In the end smile, keep your head up and have dignity in yourself, you’re a human being. Don’t let little things bring you down. Believe that one day good will prevail, because it will. I’ve lived too many years in this world where I’ve seen good people buried by stress and nonsensical b.s. Amazing people destroyed by small, meaningless c**p.
Bad people win when the good people do nothing, we have to fight, with virtue, and never stop.
This video shows children being instructed by terrorists to act like they have been hit with Sarin gas….
Can someone who speaks Arabic confirm that the description of a video is correct?
Nothing “symbolic” about attacks that have killed people. Don’t underplay it. What it was was a test run to see if the Russians were going to retaliate. As usual, they didn’t. There is nothing smart about that, sorry. One thing is clear : the West will carry on with its provocations until it receives a gigantic slap across its smug face.
Today, they are a desperate bunch of psychos, and only fear can rein them in.
Russia finds itself in the role of the weak mother who keeps saying to her children, “carry on like that and I’ll get angry”. By the hundredth time she says the same, it has long stopped working and the children are raising hell at home, with the mother repeating “carry on like that and mummy will get angry…”, “carry on like that and mummy will get angry…” while the children laugh it away.
Empty threats do not work on children, let alone psychos. How long will it take, how many more Skripals and Litvinenkos, how many more dead people in Syria before Russia understands it needs to go on the offensive? What I don’t get is Russia is supposed to be good at chess. They should know that, then, the winner in a chess game is nearly always the one who is on the offensive. And right now, the West is.
Everyone seems so eager to see Russia drag herself in all out war with collective West. Yet everyone knows perfectly well that not a single freaking country will back Russia up in this. China will just sit and happily watch both sides get exhausted, while the US will gather the usual collective gang of jackals against Russia. Putin has a very weak hand in this poker game, and he’s been playing pretty effective so far. Likely, the last thing he seems to care about it’s the bystanders’ opinion and advice.
Please. You obviously have not been following. Russia does not have a weak hand by any means. Its weapons are infinitely better than anything NATO can show for the gazillions they sink in their military-industrial complex. And I don’t believe for a second China could afford to stand by, as its stakes are too high, what with the Belt and Road they are developing along with Russia on the Eurasian continent (for starters).
The last thing the Internet needs is uninformed commentators.
The idea here is not to respond and feel like a hero. The idea is the preserve life on earth at all cost. Everything else should be left to cowboy’s movies.
Exactly! One false move in dealing with the MOST EVIL psychopaths ever to crawl out of Tartarus, and we are all DEAD. The psychos in Thanatopolis DC have apparently convinced themselves that a ‘nuclear winter’ is hokum, and not a few are so mad that they are looking forward to Armageddon, but I doubt that anyone in Beijing or Moscow is of those ilks.
I agree with you. When your on the defensive, the best thing you can hope for is a tie.
The arrogant Jews only understand the language of violence, its a part of their creed. So Russia should oblige them. Jewish international is after you Russia, they want to destroy you. Time to go ballistic, literally.
And Russia need not worry, it will stay conventional, and you got the overwhelming majority of the regions people, armed and unarmed backing you.
Just recently, I read on FARS of an Iranian General of the IRGC stating that as far as Israel goes, its mutually assured destruction, as far as them having nukes and using them on Iran.( You see, Iran has a ‘fatwa’ religious edict/ruling banning nukes, but as any fatwa, it can be reversed by the Assembly of Experts. Or by Khamenei himself.) He also said that aside from the IRGC, Iran can muster a military of 5 million if need be. I suppose a draft maybe, but with Israel’s behavior, that wouldn’t be a problem, they will have to turn men away from everyone wanting a piece of these nefarious Jews who sow discord among mankind on earth.
Also Russia, need not worry as your fight is China’s fight too. The Chinese have initially said so when Chinas Defense minister , standing right besides his Russian counterpart, Shoigu, that China stands besides Russia. This was just last week or so.
The Chinese know full well whom we are dealing with here. They have intimate knowledge of the inherent characteristics of the warmongering Jews. They know that they are slated for domination or annihilation too. And will, are fully ready to back Russia up.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t have to be this way, but what do you do with a sick and twist folk like these Jews. And mind me if I used the term ‘ Jew ‘ , because that’s what they are, and its no secret what they do. If we cant identify the problem, talk about the problem, how can we fix the problem. You see, I don’t get into the hairsplitting about…’oh, but theres good Jews too…’ business, because I cant come up with enough to count on one hand. That is but a trick and ploy they use. Jews act as a hive, all swearing allegiance to the cause, that they are inherently above everybody else and its their God (depending on which God, Molech, Baal, etc, the phallus) given right to rule the world and the rest of mankind are sub-human, cattle at best.
The Jew is the most pressing, perplexing problem humanity faces, so Russia, go ahead and do what you know you got to do, its noble, perhaps holy, your mission is.
Iran has literally no air force; its land force capability has been proven pretty inept during its operation In Syria and earlier in the Iraqi war. Iran and Iraq had been fighting about ten years pushing each other, using everything they had and without any decisive outcome, and it took just a few weeks for the US to steamroll thru Iraq, twice. So with all due respect to Iran’s military capability its participation in a war against the US is going to be pretty modest if there will be any at all should Russia and the West go in an all out war. Chinese are never going to get involved into the fight between Russia and the US. They will sit and wait, that is what a smart monkey does when two beasts fight. At best they may send some supplies to Russia, just like the US did during WWII, Russia just finished paying for those supplies a few years ago. The smart monkey will be hoping to emerge as the sole winner at the end, and that has been the Chinese strategy for centuries. Therefore, it will be Russia against the collective West, and I have doubts that any bored muslim is going to lift his butt and go fight against his beloved enemy – Israel. ad hominem statement removed mod Russians have been fighting thru all their history, and they have fought against the most powerful empires, and the fact that Russia after ten centuries of fighting is still around and has the biggest landmass on Earth indicates that Russians must have some basic knowlege about when and how they engage their enemy.
Not to critisize your point, on the contrary, just to differentiate a bit.
No, not all Jews are like this, what you call a hive, a creed.
However, the leaders, the followers, tribesmen that are calling the shots, setting the tune, definitely are. You were even polite imho. In the hidden heart of the tribe you will find people that have darker motives than you describe here, and go back to the first tribal times in the Sinai with their sinister priest cult.
But in my experience, not every jew is a zionist, and not every zionist is a jew.
Trump just announced that there will be a major decision within 24-48 hours regarding military option. Let’s try to understand what that could mean.
Usually if you want to launch an attack you don’t announce it like that. Surprise factor is out. So this must be something different and there are back-door deals going on as we speak. Russia being on the opposite side of the table. I can imagine Russia being offered a deal. Not to intervene and agree with us to rid of Iran and Hizbullah out of Syria. This is the most important thing which counts for Israel. If you don’t agree we will attack anyways. So Russia is pretty much cornered it seems. Either Russia will have to answer back militarily or just duck in. If the latter is true, then it would mean “Game Over” for Russia for the long run. Forget about being a global power, a regional power may be OK. If Russia says no, then all bets are on the table. Russia has to announce it within 48 hours that she will NOT allow any military intervention, possibly from the mouth of Lavrow or Putin himself to emphasize the significance. If no such an announcement comes from Russia be sure that Russia has lost it and Iran is on its own. Astana triad no-more and Turkey will most probably go back to Nato. The next 48 hours is very very crucial for the future of our planet and possibly a turning point whether we gonna have a multipolar or unipolar world order. Russia’s caving-in would also signal things to China. That would bring also an end to the “Double Helix”. China will go her way and we may see a strong bond developing between China and Iran. In such a case Russia will become more and more subservient to Western demands and move away from the Euroasian power base. IMO this would be a disaster. I hope sane and strategic minds in Russia will prevail and will see the grand trap.
Matthew, the reality is that ANY ‘agreement’ made with the psychopathic West is ‘writ in water’. In other words-worth NOTHING. If they get Hezbollah and Iran etc out of Syria, they will simply increase the supply of takfiri butchers to continue the process of putting the Oded Yinon Plan into action.
The more I see / hear the word “israel” the more my soul gets nauseous.
I don’t mean it in a figurative speech. Literally my soul gets nauseous.
If only the world could puke that demonic entity out . Once and for all and forever!
Please see photo with short explanation below.
I think the jewish lobby, and their zillion devices to make it virtually illegal to criticise them or Israel in any way, has left them totally blind to just how much they are almost universally despised.
All they hear is the echo chamber that their lobbies created, and are clueless how extensive is the grudge against themselves that they are fanning in humanity. The Corbyn incident was just the latest example, and they mistake silence for apathy. Not clever.
Occasional, the Big Problem is that the Zionazi elites WANT Jews to be despised. It justifies, prospectively and retrospectively, the hatred of the goyim that is the bedrock of Judaism. And of its bastard offspring, Zionism and Zionazism. Bibi and the other Israeli and Diaspora elites genuinely hate the goyim as lesser beings, for the Nazi Judeocide above all the attacks on the Jews throughout the ages, and for daring to support those quintessential ‘two-legged animals’, the Palestinians. And the hatred that Israel is understandably bringing down on Jews is a perfect recipe to get the old Masada Complex going. As they say at the seder, from the Haggadah, ‘In each and every generation they rise up against us to destroy us…’. It makes the promises of various Zionazis to ‘ Take the world down with us’, if Israel is ever threatened with destruction, very chilling indeed.
It sounds more and more like all of this-meaning the Skripal hoax, the “Animal Assad chemical attack on helpless kids,” the Israeli strike, and most of all the very real risk of a full on US strike is all designed to get Russia to blink and to submit to a UNSC resolution very unfavorable to Syria.
Now it all makes sense. Tell Russia to give up or risk global condemnation and possibly nuclear war.
There is a truly demonic hate screed in today’s UK ‘Fraudian’ by the mentally disturbed Simon Tisdall. But the comments, so far, are 80% plus hostile to his psychotic ravings, and the few supportive plainly from similarly barbaric Zionazis. The Western aggression is definitely an ‘elite’ phenomenon, but they are the ones TOTALLY controlled by Zionazi money power, so the lumpen goyim DO NOT COUNT.
Syrian Conflict for Dummies (that would be me).
Sometimes it’s easy to get lost in the complexities of this current dilemma in the Middle East and forget what the objectives are between the parties involved.
The Russians are in Syria for the oil; they’re not there to fight Israel like Hezbollah and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. In order to protect their investment, Russia is going to have to fight the U.S.-NATO crime syndicate and perhaps Israel as well to preserve the infrastructure it has built in support of its economic objectives.
This is a dicey and delegate situation for President Putin; he has to make his moves carefully so as not to blowup the situation in Syria. We read all kinds of invectives directed towards the Russian Federation (e.g., Skripal case, use of chemical gas on the Syrian population, etc.) to incriminate it as a prelude to prosecuting more war in Syria.
The Russian Defense Ministry has stated it will not tolerate attacks in Syria that endanger Russian soldiers or support personnel that are there to: protect the “deconfliction zones” (remember them?), fight the U.S. backed terrorists along with the SAA, bring humanitarian aid to the people and encourage the belligerents to negotiate an end to the strife in the country.
However the U.S. and Israel don’t care about the Syrian people; they want to overthrow the Syrian government and exploit the petroleum for themselves and bring it to the European markets. President Assad wants to save his government and the return of the Syrian refugees in Europe and elsewhere to help rebuild the nation along with Russia and perhaps a Chinese venture. This is the current situation.
Back on February 16 of this year, our Saker wrote one of his strong opinions about how far Russia can be pushed in Syria (see: http://thesaker.is/escalation-in-syria-how-far-can-the-russians-be-pushed/ ). His last paragraph reads, “So far the Russian response to this developing strategy has been a rather a passive one and the current escalation strongly suggests that a new approach might be needed. The shooting down of the Israeli F-16 is a good first step, but much more needs to be done to dramatically increase the costs the Empire will have to pay for is policies towards Syria. The increase in the number of Russian commentators and analysts demanding a stronger reaction to the current provocations might be a sign that something is in the making.”
The recent missile strikes by Israel serves as a provocation to try and get Russia to respond in kind. Many of us would like to see tit-for-tat in the form of a counter-attack and hit the Israelis hard. Maybe destroy one of those 60 meter long submarines they bought from Germany or allow Hezbollah to knock down an Israeli aircraft or obliterate one of their bases in the Golan Heights. That would be justifiable payback in many of our minds and we would all cheer (I would anyways).
Poke, the Zionazis DO care about the Syrians. As their Talmudic, Rabbinical, Orthodox and Ultra-Orthodox ‘religious’ authorities repeatedly declare (and have done so for centuries) in their ‘religion’ killing enemy civilians is not just permissible, but is, in fact, a mitzvah, or good deed. So, aggression in Syria is not just the geo-political playing-out of the Oded Yinon Plan, but is a giant religious observance, sacrificing burnt offerings to their psychotic God. And these Evil barbarians place all Israelis, even that proportion that are not Talmudist fanatics and those who oppose Zionazi aggression , in dire peril, not to forget their victims in the region, and very probably in the entire world.
What a joke!
“The Russians are in Syria for the oil”
Are you joking??? Syria used to export a measly 150k barrels of oil a day even in the best of times. Russia is in Syria to protect itself from the NATO inspired terrorist onslaught that they know is coming. And in protecting themselves, they end up protecting the rest of the world pretty much by default.
They are also, I would say, in Syria to rescue the Syrians from the onslaught of the most Evil death-squad army of fanatic butchers that the world has ever seen-so far.
Russia has invested billions in Syria to support the energy infrastructure and tourism industries which the ongoing civil war has been a major disruption to trade between the two countries. Stroitransgaz is a Russian gas facility construction company that has its largest operation in Syria. It is building a natural gas processing plant and is providing technical support for the Arab Gas Pipeline in Syria. Oil producer Tatneft based in Tatarstan, has been pumping Syrian oil since 2010. OAO “TMK”, a Russian steel pipe supplier for the gas and oil industries as well as Rosneft (previously, Itera), an oil and gas producer, all have a large business presence in Syria. The building of the Syrian pipeline could not be accomplished without Russian Federation expertise unless Assad vacated his presidency and the US/NATO/Saudi Arabian faction took over.
So the bottom line is the civil war instigated by U.S.-NATO has an impact on the Russian economy (see: https://themoscowtimes.com/articles/billions-of-dollars-of-russian-business-suffers-along-with-syria-9298 ).
The israelis informed the US in advance of the attack, but not the Russians. The US then primed their ISIS proxies to make a ground assault immediately after the Israeli strike. The ground attack was repelled and T-4 is still operational.
Is it not bizarre that around a hundred or more CIA and MI6 operatives can manipulate the human race into a situation of such great peril? And certainly French and Israeli operatives are involved.
Observing the US/UK/EU/NATO and its vassals in the MSM and the rest of the Anglosphere is like attending a performance of a very dangerous Greek tragedy that has a high probability of killing the audience.
Do lunatics in West have family, children, do they listen to centuries of prophets or even Jesus? Do they believe in anything except the power principle and winning at the expense of others?
“Do lunatics in West have family, children, do they listen to centuries of prophets or even Jesus? Do they believe in anything except the power principle and winning at the expense of others?”
Mammon is God. Jesus merely a poor commie. The Jamie Dimons, Koch brothers, and the Oracle of Omaha are the prophets looked upon as to how to pattern your life.
“Do lunatics in West have family, children, do they listen to centuries of prophets or even Jesus? Do they believe in anything except the power principle and winning at the expense of others?”
Short answer, nope. They could care less about the things you mentioned. When you completely give in to materialism, and can only understand the world through you’re 5 senses, this is the result. Add in money, “power”, and military strength, and you get a dangerous cocktail, such as we are seeing.
Until the human outlook changes, we as race will constantly run back into a similar situation. The names will change, and maybe different technology, bur when you strip those things away , it’s the same issue at the core.
Arius, the situation devolves from a number of factors, I would say. The Free Market fundamentalist neo-feudal economic system of the West is basically psychopathic, being based on hatred and fear of others. It attracts and preferences psychopaths. The West is rule by psychopaths, and they are infected with a debased religiosity that teaches them that they are universal ubermenschen, and all other human types eg Moslems, Chinese, Africans and Slavs, are untermenschen. The Western elites were always great supporters of fascism and racist ideologies, before and after Nazism, as we see today in the preference for stooges like the Ukronazis.
Then you have the malign influence of the Zionazis. Jewish money power has bought politics throughout the West, and enforced now near TOTAL submission to Israel, a suicidal, racist, terrorist, barbaric state, which, through its Talmudic religious leaders, intends imposing a global world order where Noahite Laws provide the basis of global governance and jurisprudence. Not directly, of course, but through puppets like the USA, UK, France and Austfailure.
Regretably, the glorious West, and its ineffable ‘liberal values’ are collapsing. Its economic power is ebbing away in orgies of financial parasitism, in which process the Zionazis are hugely over-represented, but, as Milton Friedman observed, ‘Capitalism is good for the Jews’. He meant ‘some Jews’, of course, but no need to be overly candid, is there? And the West’s ability to bully, harass, pillage, loot, and in the end destroy whole countries is running into resistance, led by Russia, China, Iran and Syria. The pathetic attempts of Latin American Leftists to reverse 200 years of US-imposed savagery by ‘democratic’ means in Market capitalist societies, in a ‘Pink Tide’, has been swiftly euthanised, and yet another era of blood and horror is dawning.
The successful resistance in Israel’s back-yard has driven the Zionazis MAD with rage. Eretz Yisrael, ‘ from the Nile to the Euphrates’ is non-negotiable, being God’s Will, dontya know! They are insanely determined to destroy Syria, Lebanon and Iran, and anyone who dares oppose them is an ‘antisemite’, the new ‘Supreme Crime’. Bibi may be a deranged clerico-fascist, who really believes himself a ‘God Upon the Earth’, but there are others around him in the Israeli and Diaspora elites who make him look sane.
And then there is the ecological Holocaust. While the deranged Western Right STILL deny it all, various Western elites, like the Pentagon, well know that it is very real, and as the UN recently observed, global ecological collapse is imminent. And that will usher in an age of war and butchery unprecedented in history, and the psychopaths in the West plainly see it as a useful mechanism to be rid of the 90% of ‘useless eaters’ they fear and despise, or as the means to usher in the End Times that the Dominionist and other religious loonies infesting Thanatopolis DC under Trump so clearly lust for.
I asked the question knowing the answer but at a much deeper level it is bizarre, inhuman.
There are individuals that are sociopathic or psychopathic, but an entire civilization?
Those with those pathologies are ultimately destructive or self-destructive.
But if Western Civilization is psychopathic then its end will not be in a positive manner.
The best we can hope for is that it ends in just its own self-destruction.
Arius, Western psychopathy, if you’ll pardon the tautology, has simply been an engine of genocide and destruction throughout the world for 500 years. The real religion of the West is death-worship. Thanatos is their one true God, who they offer up millions of victims to, in a vain attempt to dampen down their own dread of death. Once the technological means came to hand, ie the Maxim gun, dynamite, poison gas, tanks, aircraft, missiles and the Papa Death’s favourite-nukes, it was only a matter of ‘when’. The moron dupe, Gorbachev, said, ‘We will take your enemy away’, not apparently contemplating or understanding that for the ‘Exceptionals’ every other human being, living and, particularly, yet unborn (they hate the thought of others enjoying existence when they have returned to the ooze)is the Eternal Enemy.
Quite a rant, Mulga! I enjoyed it.
I don’t see why Russia could not retaliate on surface ship even if Cruise missiles were launched from sub.
“.First , there is a fair chance that Trump might decide to go for a symbolic attack. That would be anything under 100 cruise missiles fired at 1-4 targets (and their associated air defenses) and would probably not include government buildings in Damascus.”
In this case, I think Russia will bring the ground forces to Syria, like Turkey. They will speed up the liberation of Syria ,push the White Helmets, Hollywood crews and secret services into the sea so they have no more room to frame the provocations. Plus some extra air cover,depending on the size of ground forces.
Turkey should be retreating from Northern Syria and handing the liberated cities to SAA and Russians. Maybe this was the secret deal. Don’t know yet about the eastern side of Euphrates.
Air cover won’t save the American SSGNs if they are being trailed by silent Russian diesel-electric submarines. As they ought to be.
Moreover, if such an American submarine just vanishes, who could blame Russia? It might just have been shoddy US workmanship. Or maybe they carelessly ran into a seamount…
If the US attacks Assad’s forces in Syria, Russians will be killed, Russia, as a minimum, could respond asymmetrically by blowing up all the US/French/UK bases in Syria – cruise missile attacks, just like the US will be doing to the SAA.
Agreed, the US bases in Syria are secret and the US public is not supposed to know about that, so if they get blown up there’s not much the US regime can use as an excuse for more attacks.
Far safer to blow the US/Israeli/French military out of Syria is response than any other action. Lets face it, this may be the best opportunity to get rid of them.
I was thinking that when Trump recently said he was going pull US troops from Syria, the only reason he would do this is because he was planning to attack SAA’s coalition and they would be likely targets for reprisal. Either the US does not fear such reprisals or they don’t care what happens to their forces there – they’re willing to take the chance they’ll be sacrificed.
The Skripals to be relocated with new identities?? Sounds like a new euphemism. Relocation to the Beyond…
“LONDON (Reuters) – Britain is considering offering poisoned Russian ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia new identities and a fresh life in the United States in an attempt to protect them from further murder attempts, the Sunday Times newspaper reported.”
“As the Skripals are apparently alive and well the British government has a problem. When they talk and tell the world that it was actually food poisoning and not a chemical weapon attack that hit them, the government of Theresa May is toast. The Skripals have to be kept isolated and eventually vanished. The CIA might give them a new identity or lock them into one of its black sites. The Skripals house and the Zizzy restaurant are to be destroyed. (Who will kill the hospital doctors?)”
The Russians knew this was coming and have gamed it all out. Sure 98% of the people on this thread knew this was coming weeks or months ago. This and Skripal all all coordinated events. What is not clear to me is exactly who the precise Deep State actors are, and who the anti-deep state actors are. Trump appears as a joker in the deck, speaking to the audience of the moment. Not all is what it seems, but it could be that virtually all IS WHAT IT SEEMS. Russians know what team the players are on, and they will have to take visible action before long, as this is all staged propaganda, and fact telling is important in the long run, but not the short run.
The Russian thinking before action and fact telling approach is a framework for success with the world audience. We all know largely what the EU and US will do, as they use the same approach over and over.This won’t end until decisive action is taken to seriously wound the enemy. Russians have been chipping away, buying time until they are at 100% maximum fighting force, as well as Syria, Iran and China. Max pressure is on the west with imploding economic and social systems, Petro/Yuan, Russia fossil fuel energy domination.
The SHTF moment is almost upon us.
The best prediction I have heard.
The US will destroy the syrian air force completly.
The reason: This will inflict maximum financial cost on Syria – and on Russia if they want to rebuild it.
The risk for the US are relativly low.
China could replace all those planes and helos in the time it takes to get a ship there. Less than 3 weeks.
Russia will fly in replacements for a third of them in 2 days.
Syrians fly old stuff. Plenty of that around to ship there.
Russia flew in Iraq’s urgent need for gunship helos to save Baghdad when ISIS first swept that country.
Did it in a day.
The new concrete runways will take longer to harden than to recreate a serviceable air force.
It might be time to test the MIG 31 BM.
If Russia believes the US isn’t bluffing, and that the US will never pull back, it seems logical to me to strike the first blow and a very hard one rather than continue the pattern of symmetrical responses. I would seriously consider forcing the US to go all the way or back off. If the Russians have a good first strike strategy, it’s probably time to play the card. I’m more than a little frightened.
I agree. Its time for a first strike. “You make threats? Ok here is our response”.
A simple minded view.
There is a clock running – Russia and China are getting stronger, economically, and especially technologically as it relates both to defense and industrial production. These two countries have been developing strong economic ties and recruiting allies (BRICS). They share many military and strategic interests. They have abundant resources, including energy (especially when including Iran). They have been developing their own financial system, independent of the US dollar. These efforts are nearing maturity.
Putin gave his speech about military readiness and China announced the petro-yuan. China has stopped buying US Treasury notes. The US budget deficit is ~105% of GDP and Trump has done nothing to curb deficit spending – increasing it in fact.
Russia has been under economic sanctions since MH17 went down and Trump has just increased them including the Russian defense industry and now RUSAL who supplies ~18% of its production to the US but ~40% to Europe. This is a significant escalation.
Trump has taken on China at the same time with his “trade war”.
While all this has been building over the past 20 years the recent escalation of high profile blatant false flag incidents seem totally outlandish – who could believe them? Yet the western press parrots the party line in lock step and the European governments line up and salute the flag (mostly).
The Kerch Strait Bridge linking Crimea to Russia proper was due to be complete for highway traffic in December 2018. Now we hear it will be open in May for civilian traffic, months ahead of schedule for this massive and complex construction project. The rail link was scheduled to be completed next year but will likely also be completed ahead of schedule. The US military has been keeping close watch on this development and Russia’s preparations to defend it if necessary (as well as the status of the Black Sea Fleet and its port complex at Sevastopol one can be sure).
If the West wishes to maintain its domination with military power the window to apply such a solution is closing fast. Rational people might well believe it has already closed a few years back (or was never realistically open). Economic levers have so far failed and there is not much more to do with them.
The West needs to show NOW that it is prepared to use military force directly against its main rivals in such a way so as to clearly demonstrate willingness and resolve, but without eliciting a lethal response.
Russia has warned not to do this.
So far we have seen the chest thumping all around and the dirty tricks by the dozen.
Those antics have lost their effect it seems to me.
Hopefully this will just be another “Let’s look down over the precipice and then back away and pretend we didn’t really mean to jump”.
Israel is desperate. This was an act of desperation. Trying to force the hand of the U.S.
Short term, the Israeli’s damaged a part of the airbase, with a few dozen casualties, unfortunately.
The Russians didn’t take the bait, and as always, they are coordinating with Iran, Syria and the silent partner behind the scenes, China.
Medium term, things will remain tense and somewhat of a standoff. Chances are that a full scale Israeli, U.S., U.K, French attack on Syria are slim, as this would entail many Russian Iranian and Syrian lives. This would in effect cause a regional war which aside from cruise missiles and airpower, the Israeli’s, U.S. and co. cannot back up with anything substantial on the ground, where it counts.
Medium, to long term, this only gives ammunition, determination and willpower to the Shia crescent and Sunni, Christian allies. Basically making the Iranians more determined than ever. And also same goes for the Syrian people and their military.
So, this desperate, cowardly act by Israel only goes to work against it, and against its brief place in history books. There is no turning the liberation of Palestine back, they can try to stall, but its a forgone conclusion.
The Jews are their own worst enemy. In every conceivable way.
” The US does have options, including launching a large amount of cruise missiles from submarines which would be far less exposed to Russian retaliation ”
63% of the cruise missiles launched from F-15s over Lebanon — a very short distance — were deflected and did not reach the intended target. While a submarine missile launch might protect the US Navy from retaliation, the US has over 2,000 special forces, plus other human assets, scattered across Syria. Who knows what might happen to these Americans “in the fog of war ” created by 63% of 200 hundred deflected cruise missiles not reaching their intended targets.
NEWS FLASH: “74 US cruise missiles hit their intended targets — 800 US military killed by collateral damage of 126 errant missiles.”
Seems to me that Putin needs to demonstrate that Russia is serious about defending itself. Anything less will just keep the AngloZionist blows coming, including the destruction of Syria. So… what to do, short of attacking the U.S. directly???
Use Israel. Attack the one or two airbases where last night’s attack planes took off from.
This will demonstrate Russia’s resolve without a direct attack on American military assets.
Further, use small tactical nukes on the airbases. This further demonstrates Russia’s resolve to defend itself with nuclear weapons, as it has stated so often it would.
It should be gradually done like the economical sanctions.
First, the warning at UN SC.
Then, the new Syrian missile defense systems ( Pantsyr, Buk ) should take down the attacking Israeli planes,it should be enough for a while.
For Russia, more quiet submarines in the area of interest. Torpedoes. More troops and heavy weaponry on the ground. No more white helmets in sight. Everything red on the map. Then the asymmetric warfare like in Afghanistan in 1980…..or elsewhere. Gradually.
duck and cover
Hopefully this is the way most Americans view the world.
People lose. Swamp wins.

A phony war on terror that has been going on since 2003…
…a phony war on poverty that has been going on since 1964…
…a phony war on drugs that has been going on since 1971…
…and now… a phony trade war, too!
Yes, Dear Reader… we bomb, strafe, and bully our way from the Levant to Detroit and all places between.
The cost: maybe $6 trillion… maybe $10 trillion. And maybe a million dead people.
But at least the Middle East wars have been a great success. We know because we took a drive through Northern Virginia… where the gleaming new towers for military suppliers… and the proud new McMansions of the generals… prove it.
They wanted power and money; the wars were a way to get it.
Meanwhile, anti-poverty forces have been pounding the poorer areas of America for the last 54 years.
We know the war on poverty has been a great success, too. Just look at West Baltimore. Bombed-out houses… burnt-out stores… bummed-out people – Mission Accomplished!
And the war on drugs deserves its victory parade, too.
Yes, there are more people dying from drugs. Yes, there are more people addicted to drugs. And yes, there are more people taking mood-altering drugs now than there were when President Nixon first declared drugs as America’s “public enemy number one.”
But now… they’re mostly legal drugs! Ones the drug industry can make a profit on!
Yes, war is the health of the state, as the writer Randolph Bourne put it. Especially a phony war. And the American government is in the pink… gathering money and power to itself. Too bad about the American people.
Here at the Diary, we will make a bold prediction. We hardly stick our neck out when we guess that the Trade War will be every bit as successful as the other wars; it will continue the sordid trend, ripping off the public to reward insiders and cronies.
The people lose. The swamp wins.
Phony wars are scripted and staged. Like professional wraslin’, they’re intended to amuse the fans… and take their money.
It’s too bad the elite political commentators don’t watch the WWE; it, more than the Constitution or the Declaration of Independence, could help them understand the government as it really is.
Professional wrestling is a gaudy, fantastic world… with cartoonish characters, such as Gorgeous George, Haystacks Calhoun, Hulk Hogan, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Paul Bearer, Ric Flair, The Iron Sheik, and two who will figure later in our story – The Undertaker and Mankind, aka Mick Foley.
These performers are trained at camps, learning to do the maneuvers that wow audiences without seriously injuring each other.
The camps are a bit like the training camps for gladiators who fought each other during the Roman era. Those combats, too, were staged for the spectators… and intended to shift wealth from fans to owners, operators, and officials.
The bestiarius fought animals. The dimachaerus fought with a sword in each hand. The retiarius used a net to snare his opponent. In the Coliseum, of course, gladiators fought for their lives. In the WWE, they fight for money. And fame.
But wait. Even phony wars have casualties.
The actors miss their cues. Someone puts live ammunition in their guns. They forget to tell the soldiers that it is all supposed to be fake. Bogus battles, scripted wars, make-believe skirmishes – sometimes, something goes wrong… and then, things blow up.
And sometimes, the pressure is just too much. Mr. Perfect, Crash Holly, Malice, “Ravishing” Rick Rude, and many other WWE stars died young.
Boom and Bust
This phony trade war has the potential to blow up, too, big time. Over the next few days, we’ll explore why that is so.
The history of civilization… and of wealth creation… is largely a boom and bust pattern. The booms were marked by expanding trade; the busts happened when trade shrank.
Looked at through our own proprietary prism, we see that the good times were those that allowed win-win deals to happen. The bad times were marked by win-lose deals, funny money, and war.
The Pax Romana, a relatively peaceful time in the early days of the Roman Empire, for example, allowed free-flowing trade across Europe, the Near East, and North Africa. Citizens were relatively prosperous… and safe.
Then came the Crisis of the Third Century, brought on by… guess what… dumb wars! The Roman feds ran short of money. They had to debase the denarius (inflate the currency) to pay the soldiers. Under Augustus, the denarius had been 95% silver. By the third century, the silver content was less than one half of one percent.
The empire fell in 476 AD, when the barbarians imposed their own win-lose deals, leaving Rome in even worse shape than the feds left West Baltimore in.
In the following Dark Ages, it became difficult to travel. Trade collapsed. People retreated into walled towns for safety, where they lived in misery and poverty, relying on a local warlord for their lives and livelihoods.
End of History
It took more than 1,000 years for the prosperity of the Roman era to return. It did so when win-win deals once again became possible. After the Hundred Years’ War, kingdoms congealed… and new empires – notably, the Holy Roman Empire – took shape.
Of course, there were major setbacks. Typically, wars not only killed people and destroyed property, they also sent merchants scurrying for safety, reducing trade and increasing poverty.
The 19th century, after the Napoleonic Wars, was a long period of relative peace and growing prosperity. The big exception was the War Between the States, which, again, led to inflation and death, with a large portion of Americans’ output devoted to killing each other.
Otherwise, the century was a big success. Money was gold; and it was good money. Property rights were generally respected. The British Empire and its former colony, the U.S., created a huge area of, more or less, free trade.
This came to an end in 1914… with a period of war and trade contraction that lasted until 1945. That was followed by another big episode of expansion… especially after China joined the world economy in 1979 and Russia followed suit in 1989.
This new era was described by political economist Francis Fukuyama as the “End of History.” What more was there to fight about? Western commercial civilization had won, with its dollar, its democracy, and its commitment to peace and free trade.
But it wasn’t the end of history, was it?
Instead… history was just cleaning its weapons… preparing for another assault on the decency, prosperity, and integrity of civilized life. The Cold War may have been over… but there was still plenty of mischief the politicians and warmongers could get up to.
There are many options to reply to US aggression – although I admit I would like to see a few planes shot down and ships sunk.
For example, Zerohedge reports:
And no doubt Russia has been doing similar. In fact I read that both were liquidating Treasuries and buying gold.
The US have a dilemma: They know that putting their planes over Syria will get them shot down. And the last salvo of cruise missiles unexpectedly fell out of the sky. One weapon which Putin didn’t mention was electronic warfare, and Russia has had ample time to prepare for this.
I find it increasingly difficult to assume that the president of the United States has any capacity whatsoever to make decisions of his own volition, beyond trivial matters. This has probably been the case to a certain degree for many years already, but it seems that the puppet nature of the presidential figure grows more and more obvious with each new one. Trump looks like little more than a ceremonial mannequin. He looks uncannily like his own future wax figure. If the Hegemon ends up achieving complete planetary control, the “President of the world” may well end up being some kind of computer-generated animation figure, with features specifically designed to inspire maximum trust and sleepy comfort in his obvious benevolence.
Just one world: SABOTAGE
Putin talked with Merkel today – hopefully a positive sign.
A brilliant article by Andrew Korybko highlighting the entire logic of latest events in Syria.
Against all the comments of hype here and in other forums that Russia must and will bomb US ships, installations and nuke them all etc.etc., the real-politik seems to quite be different and what Andrew is saying makes the most sense of all (IMHO).
The bad news is that (if Andrew is indeed correct, and I fear he is), then Russia is just a “Paper Tiger”. I am truly sad to say that but it seems also that all the show Mr.Putin put forward on March 1st about his super-duper arsenal of weapons may very well be just a stage performance or bluff to be straight forward. I truly believed in Russia and Mr.Putin up to this point and really believed that Russia will make a difference towards a Multi-polar world order. I feel like deceived at this moment. What a disappointment. Folks, we continue with the Uni-polar world, until China comes along, and that is if she can ever manage to come along without Russia. The hegemon seems to be on its way to force Russia into submission. The stranglehold seems to be working.
Another very interesting source is the “SyriaLeaks” document, which was allegedly leaked after the meeting held in Washington on January 11, 2018 by a “Small American Group on Syria” (United States, Great Britain, France, Saudi Arabia and Jordan). In this meeting, many subjects were discussed, which we start seeing unfolding today. The minutes of this meeting also corresponds almost 1:1 with what Andrew Korybko is saying. The following “KEY” sentence is an excerpt from this article: (https://defence.pk/pdf/threads/syrieleaks-a-diplomatic-cable-reveals-western-strategy-in-syria.545627/ . Also if you want to see the original in French: “UN CÂBLE DIPLOMATIQUE BRITANNIQUE DEVOILE LA « STRATEGIE OCCIDENTALE » http://prochetmoyen-orient.ch/syrieleaks-un-cable-diplomatique-britannique-devoile-la-strategie-occidentale/)
“Then, the participants insisted on the “Russian desire to achieve a political solution” that was to be used to make the “Small Group” objectives “more operational”.
Russia was and is always in favor of appeasing the hegemon, it seems. This was so evident for the last year but I kept on questioning myself as I didn’t want to believe the very evidence unfolding in front of my eyes. Russia does NOT want a war (rightly so), and is ready to make concessions to avoid it or delay it at the minimum. Looks like Russia has been cornered real good and the winner is (unfortunately) the hegemon.
For the time-being, we gonna continue living, may be for the next few decades in our current world, until China becomes a real global power, both economically and militarily, of course provided the hegemon allows it (which I doubt). For Russia, she may turn into a room-temperature vassal country, may be better than Yeltsin years but nevertheless a subservient satellite. Oh yes, they may grant even a European Union membership to Russia and Russian leaders may have private dinners with the western elites, like what happened with Clinton and Yeltsin (remember the video where Yeltsin is dancing drunk and stupidly and Clinton is laughing his a.. off.)
Humanity seems to be losing a golden opportunity to have a multi-polar World Order. With this I want to say bye bye to Euroasian power house, double-helix, Astana, SCO, petro-yuan, OBOR. It was nice to meet you.
You are snake. Don´t rejoice too early.
No personal attacks. Mod
Sorry but that guy is not very good at analysis
What has he ever been wrote about?
There are a number of writers about geopolitics who never get anything right and he is one of them.
Be happy that you and the rest of us are still alive. Please, stop this nonsense that Russia has to prove itself by killing life on our planet.
Interesting. But you give no real argument or evidence for your point of view; you just assert it over and over. If you wanted to argue your case, I would be all ears. In my view, the shift to a multipolar world is slow but now-inexporable; huge tectonic forces are bringing it into being; this particular crisis is not nearly (afaiks) as significant as you seem to think it is. Maybe I am wrong, but you have not convinced me.
I see your comment as complete bull. The caravan is still moving.
Well who are we to disagree with ‘brilliant’ comments from Andrew K.
The man himself stated that Israel is a close Russian ally.
Friends, from my cockpit in a fishing village overlooking the Mediterranean, Καλό Πάσχα, Χριστός ανέστη.
Perhaps some of my ideas overlap some already voiced here. As an interim middle-game, I suggest the framing is Trump’s bid to get a meeting with Putin. It is Trump’s bid only because Trump carries the POTUS title, otherwise it is a reflection of a concensus building in the US: do something to force Russia to accept a quick fix because, indeed, time is on Putin’s side, which means the US finds itself in the position of the Runner (usually identified with Achilles) in Zeno’s Paradox, who, having granted the turtle a bit of a head start, will never manage to catch up (militarily, economically, culturally, socio-politically), because each time Achilles reaches a point where the turtle was at, the turtle is another step or two ahead. The US has no chance to spend years gnawing and nibbling away at the new civilizational tsunami, the new multipolar world order.
Of course, Team-Russia is prepared for this. It was Russian, Chinese and Iranian brain-power and diplomacy that morphed into a multi-tenacle force enveloping de facto the entire world (the Germans, for example, don’t know it or won’t admit it,but Putin’s March 1st speech extended a protective umbrella over Germany which NATO never pretended to provide), and, as that force was developing, they all knew that military power would be required to defend their new baby. And they have not been careful or coy about it. They have just as un-careful and un-coy about developing their economic deals, connectivity systems etc. It is this power that the recent spate of US strategic documents identifies as the threat to the US. If we strip away the verbiage and narrative-management contortions (which would lead a normal student of the English language to conclude that the writers of these documents have forgotten their mother tongue), we may boil the content down to a single formula: the US is in or is moving into a dilemma of “surender or commit suicide”.
Objectively speaking, the dilemma is true and real. It does not matter at the moment whose fault it is. The tool suggested in the US strategic documents to deal with this dilemma is “escalate to de-escalate,” which the authors contend is a Russian tactic. Just as objectively, the US’ attempt to apply such a tactic is absurd.
The US proved that to itself in the case of North Korea. There simply are no military tools with which to escalate, then to call in the de-escalation diplomats to sqeeze out a deal that lets the US escape the “surrender or commit suicide” dilemma. Speaking again objectively, the force-fields working against the US in the Middle East replicate the lesson of North Korea. Yes, Israel threw some cruise missiles at the T4 Airbase. I believe Saker’s assessment is objectively accurate. If Israel truly wants to poke the escalation snake, they’ll have to try harder. By induction, we might speculate that some idiot who at least resembles John Bolton has been twisting the Israeli’s arms to do what he suggested much earlier, i.e., that Israel should bomb Iranian nuclear reactors, but not the US. Israel declined Bolton’s advice before, this time they pulled off a game-irrelevant symbolic mini-show.
What are the prospects for Israel trying harder to poke the escalation snake? — In my estimation, very low. Israel has US backup to kill Palestinians, but the Middle East game is far too big for them, and they obviously do not trust the Americans to back them up in a strategic escalation. That means that Israel — whatever factional games are being played with Netanyahu und DefMin Lieberman — has an accurate assessment that the US is playing a game that threatens the existence of the state of Israel.
Russian diplomatic language has shifted: Lavrov not only repeated Gerasimov’s announcement concerning wha Russia will do militarily in the event of an attack against Syria, he also said “Russia has commitments to Syria”, which is a step beyond proclaiming Russia will act only if/when Russians are hit. Of course, Trump’s gambit is to say, “Now that you know we are not going to talk to you, you had better talk to me.” He is moving deeper into his own dilemma, “surrender or commit suicide”. What could Trump possibly want to talk to Putin about, which Putin would also want to talk about? Putin knows Trump’s dilemma. Trump does not have many moves left. But the US’ strategic documents are correct: the new multipolar world civilization has the rat cornered.
The Emperor has no clothes, cross ownerships have counted virtual assets many times over and what savings existed have been pissed away in the ME the last 20 years without results improving the quality of human existence.
When the chosen resort to supporting virtual cryto currencies you know the game is up and they are hanging by fingernails.
This time it will be different because ever the chickens are informed.

I just can’t take it anymore, watching live UN security Council meeting. Heard the very long, exhaustive, fact-based , honest explanation of the Russian ambassador, Then the vassal The Netherlands, and then just right now THE HALEY HAG.
Bring the sick-bag please. Enough is enough. give it to them in CAPITAL LETTERS, or else, behind the curtain or up front, doesn’t matter. This is so far beyond absurd, that it can’t even be explained/analyzed in any way.
The US, etc.. just passed the point of no return. No less. I’m so sorry.
Haley is such a dumb and despicable woman.
Nikki Randhawa Haley is actually quite entertaining to watch in action–in the same manner that a screeching monkey flinging its own feces against a wall is entertaining.
Also, do an internet search for “Binomo and Nikki Haley” for an example of this woman’s brilliance.
Nikki Haley at UNSC is saying that US will act independently of the security council (again) against Assad. Angling to get Russia’s veto ignored.
First of all, excellent coverage regarding this attack by Saker!!! Thanks a lot Saker and all the commentators.
Now what was the point of having Trump telegraph the whole thing in advance on twitter..? Wouldn’t it have been better to have kept it all as a surprise?
Or did they want to have the Russians on high alert in order to increase the liklihood of an incident??
Answer: It’s all about phony-baloney moral posturing and the Russians got enough satellites that whey would be aware of where the US ships are anyways
the murderer says ,he knows who did the killing and ask others to help him ,to destroy the one he has accused.
Nikky Haley telling pathetic fairy tales at the UN. We are f*cked.
“Western states are now threatening and slandering Russia with a ferocity that their governments “did not take the liberty” to unleash during the Cold War, Nebenzia added. “Russia has been inexcusably threatened,” he said.
Nebenzia stressed that every time the Western powers interfere into other states’ affairs, they “leave only chaos behind.” “Do you understand the dangerous threshold to which you are bringing the world?” the Russian envoy asked.”
@Larchmonter. Little 8 year old Daud throwing a stone at a couple of adult Davids hidden inside a monstrous great tank bolstered with armour and bristling with cannon. Far more unequal than the Biblical David facing a single opponent of height 6 foot 9 inches (2m).
One thing not mentioned is the us. navy cruise missiles still use old gps system that can be jammed or taken over.
If the Russians are attacked the could send a few cruise missiles to the Amerikan bases in Syria. The trumpster will be listening to bolten, Scary.
I’ve been thinking for a while that it should not be beyond the Russians to send the cruise missiles back from where they were launched. That would be poetic.
haha yes it would!
Easy solution. Russia and China only have to state unequivocally. WE DON’T NEED YOU!!!. YOU NEED US!!!.
IF they do that, a lot of other countries would back it. IF the Kaiser has no clothes, IT HAS TO BE SPELLED OUT LOUD!!
Live with it, and let us sort it out in a decent HUMAN/SPIRITUAL manner, for all of humanity .
It is quite obvious that all the VASSAL’s on this (and previous security counsel meetings), are close to shitting there pants because they are to deep in the SHIT, and do not have the means, or the courage to stand up.
This fucking charade cannot be repeated, forever. (UK just spoke).. Now China. As expected, very diplomatic, but with a gentle message, (not understood by many, believe it or not).
Now the Swedish. Better, much better than the previous (last meeting, Skripal). He was very uneasy, very uncomfortably with what he was obliged to say, and volunteered out for this one.
Poland Bla – Bla -.
Ethiopia: Very diplomatic, understood by all diplomats. Unfortunately there are no real diplomats in WA..
I give up, close down. Been there, seen that.
Unfortunately, I now have a very sincere obligation to give as much (or as little as in 2014/2015 on Donbass, which was 24/7, on many platforms.
And here I was, thinking, I’ve done my bit!! Now I wan’t to devote some years, primarily to my Family, and all the stuff (practical or not, that I have neglected for higher courses for years).
Please, friends. I cannot go all out, as I am by choice very visible. I can, however do a lot more than during the past year, and I will.
P.S. Visibility for some, is not visible for others..
Go out and fight friends, where ever you are, and please try to adjust actions to essential obligations. Where you are located, means of disposal, Family, AND Spiritual/Karmatic reponsibilities.
Kazachstan. History will become judge. “Are there any other sources than the White Helmet’s”. ++++.
Strongest ever statement in the UN that I have ever heard. Any US politician that knows ANYTHING of the shear size and natural resources of Kazakhstan?? And, fighter spirit embedded in the citizens/souls??
No, they don’t. “It’s not even a Gas-Station” pretending to be a Country. (MCcraim).
I’m out. 300 km. from my Home.
Will be back
Trump: Major Decision on Syria Within Next 24 to 48 Hours on Chemical Attack Response
Conclusion UN security counsel meeting.
The Lapdogs behaved as expected. The “Not Lapdogs” (abstinentes actually had more courage than last week.)
Bolivia is an example
NIckley Haley LEFT when the Syrian representative. started to speak.
IF I could, I most certainly WOULD-!!
Syrian girl who used to have a weekly YouTube channel with incisive analyses of the Syrian war until the YouTube controllers banned and deleted all her informative videos – resurfaces, hosted by channel Russian Insight. Watch! More informative than ever:
We could be at the brink of a new world war right now !
I hope the Americans get what they deserve if they decide to strike within the coming hours.
I always thought Paul Craig Roberts was a little ‘over the top’ with saying that the Russian actions will not bring the any goodwill in the West. He said that over a few years, in different ways. . Today, I must apologize for thinking him to be over the top, because he has been exactly right. The war of words that we saw today changed absolutely nothing. Minds are made up. There is basically nothing Russia or Syria can say to convince anyone of the correctness of their decisions or in this case, that the so-called chemical attack was most probably staged .. a hollywood helmet production.
Today I lost that last little bit of hope that somebody will come to their senses. The empire/judge/jury/executioner ruled in favor of empire before this meeting started … long before … today, empire won, decisively. There were not enough voices otherwise. Multi-polarity or a non-empire world order is now a dream, if we do not accept that it will have to be bloody battled for – and then most everyone will turn into glass.
My view of of pcr is the opposite, due to his Russia nonsense.
Speech of the Russian ambassador Vasily Nebenzya in the UNSC meeting 09.04.2018 – Video
(You can change the language of the subtitles from Russian to English)
If Russian won’t change tactics against the Great Satan and his Twin, a war when it comes to it will be solely responsible. So far it invites GS&T time after time to do bravest misdeeds and that can encourage them to do something, the Russian will have no other option but to fight them. Looks as they are pushed more into the rat’s corner without exit. They must to win in Syria for real now, not a partial victory and stretching it forever.It must be a decisive action, not a wishy washy cat and mice game with GS&It’s terrorists. It easy to do it if they have the will but something is in the cards. Just guess.
“Asked yesterday whether Russia’s Vladimir Putin bears responsibility for the atrocity on Saturday in Douma, Mr Trump said: ‘He may, yeah, he may. And if he does it’s going to be very tough, very tough. Everybody’s gonna pay a price. He will, everybody will.’”
Oh boy…whitehall working out whether no need to get parliament permission to use its forces against Assad….subs..planes missiles apparently at the ready???,?
Something unexpected happened today at the unsc.
UN Security Council Meets After Alleged Chemical Attack in Syria
“”Recent developments carry more than ever before” the danger of triggering the multiple “fault lines in the Middle East,” which could lead to “absolutely devastating consequences, which are difficult to even imagine,” the official said, underscoring the possibility that the war in Syria may spiral into a larger international security crisis.
Regarding the alleged chemical gas attack over the weekend in the country, “The United Nations is unable to independently verify or attribute responsibility for this attack, but we call on all parties to show utmost restraint and avoid any further escalation or confrontation,” de Mistura said.”
De Mistura apparently broke ranks with the zionazi war criminal club, but that is not all.
“The Russian envoy called for the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) investigative team to conduct a thorough inquiry surrounding the allegations of chemical weapon use, saying these teams could be escorted by Russian and Syrian forces as soon as Tuesday.
UK Envoy Karen Pierce expressed interest in pursuing this course of action. “I was very interested to hear the Russian offer that OPCW fact-finding mission could visit and would have the protection of Russian forces. Mr. President, I believe that this is an offer worth pursuing but it would of course be necessary for the OPCW mission to have complete freedom of action and freedom of access,” Pierce said.”
While full of govno otherwise, the uk envoy also appears to have broken ranks.
The zionazis obviously want a military showdown to resurrect their terrorist war against Syria, ala their greater israel faggotry, this shown by the haley traitor. The hesitation of the brit is interesting, given their Skripal false flag was designed to preceicipitate a zionazi strategy to stave off their humiliating defeat in Syria.
Alexander Mercouris has an interesting article … this is the first time Russia has been in control of the crime scene of false flag attack … which make US attack more likely.
Now, that is an interesting development, because it beams ‘reasonability’. But I’m still cautious about this.
I don’t want to be cynical (‘keep Ivanka away from Donald’), but I’d like to share an article about the USA threatening the OPCW director personally when they were on the verge of having a breakthrough with Iraq: https://www.globalresearch.ca/america-threatened-opcw-director-general-we-know-where-your-kids-are/5635204
The threatener was John Bolton. When they want their damned war, they will do anything.
This thread is quite depressing.
Never read so many negativity about Russia.
And I have to ask myself why?
Why is not the negativity directed against all these he western countries we all live in?
They are the ones that have got us here – not Russia
Think about that
It’s called zionazi trolling. Something that “coincidentally” has greatly increased on this site the last month.
Sorry for thinking so far out of the box here, but bear with me in this thought experiment.
Sometimes the process of intelligence on the ground and prophecy can intersect to yield a more complete picture. Or to be fair delusion as well.
It starts with Daniel 11:44 (referencing http://biblehub.com/kjv/daniel/11.htm):
44 But tidings out of the east (Iran?, China?) and out of the north (Russia?) shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury (Donald Trump and Animal Assad?) to destroy, and utterly to make away many.
45 And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; YET HE SHALL COME TO HIS END, AND NONE SHALL HELP HIM.
just prior, in verse 43 this same entity was involved prior in Libya and Egypt :
43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps (NATO and Arab Spring?).
The Saker and in a previous post alleged that the US regarded itself as a “Messianic” entity, which attribute of the verse 44 entity made this nearby verse stand out:
36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods (especially via Obama, and Trump via “I am the only one who can save America” during election), and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.
Earlier in verse 14, it speaks of related robbers of the people who will FALL BEFORE ESTABLISHING “THE VISION” (CFR/New World Order/Federal Reserve Act?):
14 And in those times there shall many stand up against the king of the south: also the robbers of thy people shall exalt themselves to establish the vision; but they shall fall
So even they are part of the fall.
There is also woven into the threads of the Daniel 11, two adverserial entities identified as a King of the South, and King of the North. There have been many interpretations as to who and what these are geopolitically, usually pertaining to a middle eastern geographic scope. What if instead, the King of the North and South were variants of a common nation name instead…. like Korea? Something that was happening in parallel/concurrent with, and inextricably intertwined with the events in the middle east?
How does this mesh with the prophecy in Daniel 11?
1. They are the only two nations in the world of a common name who are designated by the distinction North and South and each have their own ruler.
2. There is a long standing adversarial pattern between them.
3. They are RIGHT NOW sitting at the negotiating table possibly/likely lying (taking counsel by means of the secret visit by Kim Jong Un by traine to China?):
27 And both these kings’ hearts shall be to do mischief, and they shall speak lies at one table; but it shall not prosper: for yet the end shall be at the time appointed
This table scene is happening NOW.
4. It is tied in and concurrent with the the events in the middle east ,as the king of the north (Korea) is allied with China and by extension, China with Russia with Iran who are the allies of Syria. And the king of the south (Korea) is Allied with the same Collective Anglozionist (Israel/US/NATO) empire (Mystery Babylon) who is spoken to fall in verse 44. So the concept of King of the North and King of the South being a Korea side car in this Middle East prophecy still is very representatiional of the major alliances at war in this time, and nowhere that I have seen in this chapter rules that possiblity out.
So what is the foretold end result?
1. The King of the North alliance in the end DOES overcome the King of the South and its alliance, and this is probably due to the collapse of the overstretched and broke Southern alliance, their possibly even being nuked to the point of uselessness.
2. The North Alliance then enters the glorious land. Whether this is Israel, or the United States invasion is anyones guess, but in either case, there is no one left to defend it.
3. As in the ancient times, when Israels chief protector Egypt was destroyed, the current day anti-Christ zionists zealots will have a chance to think long about their prior anmous conduct with their the Northern Alliance neighbors when they no longer have a protector, and the alliance of the North is now rapidly advancing upon them with no restriction.
4. If the alliance that enters into the glorious land, be that land Israel, or the United States, is one and the same as Gog/Magog of Ezekiel 38, it will ultimately not fare well for them. Jerusalem, which is in the center of Israel is foretold to be surrounded by these armies, so it is a safe bet that they overcome and pass through whatever resistance that may be encountered in any real-estate along the way.
5. Although Israel at point 4 above may very well be purged of any remaining stiff necked anti-Christ zionist influence, this is where the Lord and his Archangel Michael cross dimensions and leave but the sixth part of them, their flesh rotting and dropping off them while they stand. The small remnant remaining of otherwise helpless Israel seeing this great intervention have their eyes opened, heartfully and sorrowfully repent, the superpowers of the earth are brought to nothing, and the Planet gets a new King. The REAL ZION.
6. Apparently the Samson option ultimately does not work well for them, but could be a key element in the end time prophecy of Damascus being reduced to rubble as mentioned in Isaiah.
I could be way off, but I find it really fascinating the number of things that mesh in this chapter so well with the current events on a number of levels. At least until the dreadful bright white flash comes to a neighborhood near me.
Now it is total victory or total surrender and capitulation.If Putin does nothing in case of a giant missiles attack(including russians killed and or wounded,aircrafts destroyed etc).
I’m afraid we are on the way of capitulation(see black monday on the ruble and stocks in Moscow,index closing down between – 8.5 and – 11.3%).A coup is now even possible as oligarchs lost billions of their assets in one single day today and will loose more.There is no more trust in the financial situation of RF.We are still lucky that the oil(brent)was up today,otherwise it could have been worst.
There is nothing to negociate with the West.It is a bunch of gangsters,psychopaths,pirates,terrorists.When a ‘civilisation’ falls so low that she uses proxys like nazis in Ukraine,Al Quaeda,Isis and co in Syria.Not to forget the fake migrants crisis,the attacks on western civilians in Europe,the lies of the MSM 24/7.They don’t respect any international law anypore,any agreement,any treaty…nothing.
The Zio-Anglo-American Axis is quite determined to complete their Greater Israel project even though Putin’s Russia has already wrecked their plans once. See: Putin’s Russia Blows Up Scheme For ‘Greater Israel’
Ever since Trump was elected, the same Zionist Neocons under W. Bush have been appointed to various positions in the West Wing. John Bolton is only the most recent and notorious of these hardcore warmongers. “Bolton appointment proves that Trump is being blackmailed! — Q²
This continual stacking of the Trump administration with Russophobes and Iran haters is by purposeful design. It’s also no accident of presidential fate that the Trump has allowed himself to be used to promote war for Israel. In fact, this particular date with Armageddon has been planned for centuries by the NWO globalist cabal.
The United States, United Kingdom and Israel have proven to the world community of nations that they will execute any false flag attack anywhere, anytime to advance their New World Order agenda. A big piece of that agenda is the Greater Israel project. Hence, the whole world has been witness to one false flag chemical attack after another.
Fake skripal chem attack in London,no problem…fake(third)chem attack in Douma yesterday…no problem.
They can go on,double down as many times they wish if there is no cost for them.The only cost they are afraid of is: blood(very sad I agree but they are crazy).Even loosing the world cup,who cares?They still have 2 months left before the WC Soccer starts,imagine how many false flags they can manage to organize.
They (as devils)can even try something during the WCup(Ukraine?)or attacks on Russian soil.
They must be stopped now,if it is not too late?
Could it be part of the grand strategy of holding out out long enough for the most recent Sino_Russian weaponized finance (i.e. replace the US dollar as the only means of international exchange with a gold based Yuan alternative, witholding of treasuries purchases by China, and dumping US holdings) to trigger internal collapse?
Are not the moves to create such impending economic collapse, and by extension, US global power as well by China and Russia, along with the alarming knowledge that their window of opportunity to act will closed when Russia deprecates their existing defensive and offensive capabilities with its newly demonstrated weapons technology the REAL cause for the irrational level of desperation and apparently desperate “rush to judgment before evidence” tactics by the West? So reserving resources and action until one must fight makes sense in the lens of grand strategy.
Israels incursion into Syria may have been an attempt to provoke the Russians into setting off the war by attacking the US first, but mistakenly in the ensuing confusion, which would have then provided the US the moral high ground if they proved not to be the attacker and were attacked first. If that were Israels intent, it would signal that Russia knows both itself, and its enemy, hence every battle a victory. It signals they are on top of, and in control of their information.
Whereas Western intelligence were in dismay and panic over Russia recent weapons revelations and how much the eyes and ears of their intelligence missed. So how will their armed forces, while yet knowing themselves, claim to know their enemy? In the know your self, and know not your enemy maxim, there is one defeat per one victory. As if their collapsing global economic power were not enough.
Going out on a limb, but I think Trump will be out of office by the time the world erupts, and the markets implode. He can say that he did all he could and was Making America Great, if only he was not so wrongfully denied. Just as ostensible peacenik Obama was necessary part of the story explaining how George W. Bush’s wars could have gone so wrong, so will Trump’s brief interlude,Making America Great Again be a shining moment, giving the lumpen-proletariat hope as terminal-debt-capitalism slouches towards Gomorrah.
The real hope of Trump is as goes down, he drags Clinton, Bush et al. along with him. Going forward, America–what’s left– will need some semblance of justice, however small.
Well there is a reason Russia deployed its antisubmarine Iljushin to Syria 😂
UN pet peeve #1 : when one nation says they will start a war with or without UN approval at a UN meeting on the very subject of giving such approval….. and no one reacts to that. !*@?!! Keep calm and…
So, the US has positioned the USS Donald Cook, a guided missile destroyer, just off Syrian territorial waters. Infowars reported that the USS Laboon is “in the vicinity” while other reports claim it is participating in an exercise with the USS Iwo Jima near Djibouti. That exercise, by the way, was cancelled due to a crash on takeoff of an AV-8B Harrier. Russian news adds that the USS Carney, USS Georgia, an Ohio-class submarine, and USS John Warner are also in the vicinity.
So, two destroyers and two subs — around 350 cruise missiles between them?
Larchmonter445 (above) estimates a first wave attack of 350 cruise missiles, followed by a second wave of around 200.
The two Arleigh Burke-class destroyers could have 90-100 missiles each. The USS Georgia SSGN up to 154 missiles. USS John Warner about 37. These numbers roughly tally with Larch’s estimate.
However, with Russian ECM, 60% of the missiles in the April 2017 attack were sent off course. Assuming a similar deterrence this year (unless the US has upped their gain against Russian tech?), around 210 of those 350 missiles in the first wave could miss their targets.
I don’t understand the gloomy attitude expressed by a number of people in this thread. The US can make a significant attack with cruise missiles from two destroyers and two subs, but if 60% of those missiles fly off course (striking… who knows… Lebanon or even Israel?) the whole attack would likely be considered a failure. Hitting government buildings and critical infrastructure with 100+ cruise missiles would involve numerous civilian deaths — not exactly a PR victory, though of course the Western MSM would not criticize that unless one of the missiles landed in Israel.
A more significant attack would require air power, but the US has no aircraft carriers in the vicinity. That would mean Israel and/or France would have to take on that task and likely they would sustain significant losses.
How would this be a game changer for the Russian mission in Syria?
I understand the Russian EW completely negated the first wave (approx 35) of cruise missiles fired. The US then fired a second salvo from another ship which were let through, possibly to test SAMs etc.
In the intervening period, Russia will have beefed up the EW capability, so cruise missiles may be useless. And that not withstanding return missiles taking out ships/planes/subs that fire them.
I have no doubt that Russia is prepared. Will Putin give the order? I don’t see he has any alternative.
Give the order to…? Deter the attack, or launch return missiles that hit two US destroyers?
I agree the former is almost a certainty, but if you mean the latter, why no alternative?
If the Russian EW is as good as you describe (I cannot say, but let’s go with this idea), then wouldn’t the safest course of action be to simply negate the attack to the greatest possible extent, demonstrating that the cruise missiles are not very effective?
Firing missiles in return that strike US forces would be used as a pretense to quickly follow up with another attack of even greater strength. It would be spun as an act of war against the US. Why provide the hegemon with that opportunity?
Deter the attack is a given. Remember Gerasimov said launchers would be attacked as well. Will Putin make this call? That was my question.
If yankee cruises fly they will be brought down along with the ships, then Israel will be neutralized.
If it escalated, London, Paris, Washington, Colorado and New York will glow.
China will take Taiwan and South Korea will be neutralized, US bases will glow, if NZ, AUZ and Japan join they will glow.
And the world will be at peace.
If it escalated, London, Paris, Washington, Colorado and New York will glow.
I don’t see this happening without Moscow and Petersburg glowing too. And I am pretty confident that the world following such a nuclear fallout will not be a world at peace.
There are no other options.
Does anyone really expect Russia to play dead?
The UNSC does not work because the majority are pocketed and sideline peace.
Trump is toast, neutered, petrified, walking around with a bullet proof vest under his coat and following colonial orders, he does not represent American people as PM May was his first visitor with marching orders.
Moreover he lost executive power to represent or negotiate American interests so nothing he says sticks. Besides he is delutional thinking he can bargain with lies and me-first conditions.
So who do you talk reason with?
Unfortunately asymmetric warfare is the only logical response because as humans we haven’t evolved to the understanding that Love is the force that holds the universe together.
USA Corp needs a nose bleed to face reality and a couple of strategic nukes will not be the end of the world, Lady Babalon will fix herself like in Japan.
Otherwise 1984 and Mammon will be our God!
They can fly in B 52s from Qatar over Iraq and fire cruise missiles off those platforms also.
Also jets based in Israel at the US base there, F-35s and F-18s.
Cruise missiles from several directions right beyond the border of Syria.
Okay, I had not considered the Qatar base.
Still, there are operational S-400s in Syria. Do you think they wouldn’t be used in this scenario, or, only if the attacking aircraft enter Syrian airspace?
Dont forget the Akrotiri and Dhekelia bases in Cyprus and accumulated assets in Jordan.

The U.S. empire has 800 foreign bases—roughly 791 more than the nearest competitor, Russia–for a reason.
What happened at UNSC:
“The United States “will respond” to a deadly chemical weapons attack in Syria regardless of whether the United Nations Security Council acts or not, US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley says.
“US Ambassador Nikki Haley on Monday urged the United Nations Security Council to act following the latest alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria, warning the United States was ready to respond.
“We have reached the moment when the world must see justice done,” Haley told an emergency meeting at UN headquarters in New York.
“History will record this as the moment when the Security Council either discharged its duty or demonstrated its utter and complete failure to protect the people of Syria,” she said.
“Either way, the United States will respond.”
“These attacks took place either with Russia’s tacit or explicit agreement, or despite its military presence on the ground,” said French Ambassador Francois Delattre.
Israel accused Syria of “crimes against humanity” over the alleged chemical attack on a rebel-held town, saying President Bashar al-Assad’s regime was responsible.
“Israel strongly condemns the chemical weapons strike carried out by Syria on April 7, one year after the mass murder carried out by the regime in Khan Sheikun,” a foreign ministry statement said.
“The Syrian regime continues to perpetrate crimes against humanity in using these outlawed weapons.”
Hey, Assad is the ‘angel of death’. Dajjal!
1st top-level military meeting since 2013
Top Russian & NATO military officials to meet over Syria next week – report
Given the spate of obvious provocations being staged by the Zio-Anglo-American Axis against both Russia and China, it appears that the Western powers are getting ready to rumble.
In fact, there has been such a steady stream of patently false allegations leveled at Russia that the only purpose must be to soften up the mainstream media audience for naked war propaganda. Waging war by deception is always preceded by a blatant campaign of disinformation, particularly when the UK, US and Israel are behind it.
The UN Security Council is well aware that it was foreign aggression that triggered and has sustained the Syrian conflict; and that it was never a civil war. Every country involved is cognizant of the stark reality that it was NATO’s Operation Gladio B which was used to carry out the Arab Spring. The only logical conclusion is that the U.S.-led NATO, with the UK leading from behind while Israel manipulates the major NATO military members, are the true warmongers. Hence, NATO is now well known as the North Atlantic Terrorist Organization throughout European military leadership and intelligence circles.
“This year’s extraordinary March Madness was engineered by NATO’s Operation Gladio to trigger yet another unprovoked war of aggression in the Middle East. 2018 has already seen a cascade of fabricated and provocative events that point to the New World Order globalists. The same perps are planning more false flag terrorist attacks for this April and beyond. These strategic acts of state-sponsored terrorism are being carried out by the leadership of the Zio-Anglo-American Axis in order to initiate the hot phase of World War 3. There is both a script and a schedule being strictly followed by this criminal cabal of Neocon Zionists. Each terror operation is always followed by a highly organized cover-up coordinated by the US, UK and Israeli intelligence communities, participating NATO militaries, Western mainstream media, major social network utilities, federal and local law enforcement agencies, as well as transnational corporations such as SERCO. These same co-conspirators also conduct stunningly sophisticated psyops before, during and after these black ops known variously as Operations Gladio A, B and C depending on their purpose and location.
still casualties is NOT okay. I wish that Israel would hurry up and get what its got coming – they need to disembark from Palestine – there is no such thing as a land called Israel – Palestinians want the Algeria solution – that’s what I was told by a Palestinian – that’s when the French left Algeria completely and turned it back over to the former inhabitants
As I live 20 miles from Tinker AFB in Oklahoma City, I’m kinda hoping that when the Russian nukes start dropping it’s a typical, windy spring day. BTW, I was stationed there as a Security Specialist from ’83-’87. The 552nd AWAC HQ is based there. So…if the wind is from the south, I’m certain that I’ll be clear of the fallout. The blast might be a bit of an issue but with the core of OKC in a direct line between my house and the base 20 miles distant, maybe it’ll be tempered a bit. Unfortunately, I was removed from my native Canada as a young boy and have grown accustomed to the warm, temperate climate found here. A nuclear winter is going to be a tough thing to deal with. Parkas aren’t exactly easy to find at my local Wal-Mart.
Anyways, being that I’m also a deist, might as well join the fray with a great quote from my all time favorite Founding Father…
“I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish church, by the Roman church, by the Greek church, by the Turkish church, by the Protestant church, nor by any church that I know of. My own mind is my own church.
All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian, or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit.”
― Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason
I sometimes wonder if there are any decent humans at all – relieved to hear some sense.
Everything you ever wanted to know about Tomahawk Cruise Missile Variants:
Regarding a possible ‘saturation’ use of Tomahawks (350 missiles) against Syria, I suspect that EW will be taken out of the equation. The Deep State learned that Russia has some form of effective EW against Tomahawks via the last large Tomahawk-salvo. Since this missile has a built-in Inertial Guidance System (INS) – which is unjammable, since it relies on no external signals – I suspect the other guidance systems (GPS, Terrain Contour Matching [TERCOM], and Digital Scene Matching Area Correlation [DSMAC] ) will simply be ‘locked out’.
INS suffers from a gradual error-accumulation over long flights, which is why those ‘terminal guidance’ aids exist. However, these Tomahawks will be on relatively-short flights from ships/subs somewhat offshore. Thus, a small INS error-accumulation. So, add a few more missiles to each target to give a statistical guarantee of a close-enough hit and call it a day. (Sorry.)
Mueller has just disgraced and humiliated President Trump. Instead of taking care of Mueller – which he should have done a long time ago – Trump has lost focus and is now mixed up in Syria.
And like President Clinton, also involved in a sex scandal, Trump will rage and lash out against Russia. For Clinton it was bombing Serbia – and the Serbians waited and waited for the RussiAns to save them. Nothing.
Will this time be different? I do not know, but I know for a fact Trump and the Republicans and Democrats have screwed us Americans once again. I just hope they don’t destroy the world this time.
