Russia is sending two large amphibious assault ships to the eastern Mediterranean

Anonymous Lurker has just drawn my attention to a most interesting piece of information (thanks!):  Russia is sending two large amphibious assault ships – the Novocherkassk and the Minsk – to the eastern Mediterranean. Novocherkassk Minsk This type of ship can carry 10 main battle tanks and 200 troops or 12 armored personnel carriers and 340 troops or 3 main battle tanks, plus some artillery and air defense systems.  In

Some clarifying details about this morning’s launch of two missiles by Israel and about the Hezbollah mobilization

Ok, now the picture of what actually happened this morning is becoming clear (thanks to the Russian media which is in a coverage frenzy over this and which has plenty of contacts inside the Russian military).The two missiles fired this morning were not cruise missiles of the Tomahawk type, but Israeli ballistic missiles of the “Anchor” type which are used as targets by the Israeli air defenses and which are

Russian military detects two missiles launches in the Mediterranean – Shoigu briefs Putin

According to Russian media sources, early this morning the Russian early warning radar system Armavir run by the Russian Aerospace Defense Forces detected the launch of two missiles in the Mediterranean.  Both missiles were fired in an eastern trajectory and both eventually fell into the sea.   Russian early warning radars systems   First, nobody admitted firing these missiles, in fact everybody denied it, but eventually the Israelis admitted that they

Have insurgents admitted that they used chemical weapons?

Tonight a good friend send me these links which I would like to pass on to you with a few disclaimers: http://www.crescent-online.net/2013/09/syrian-rebels-admit-using-chemical-weapons-wwwcrescent-onlinenet-4013-articles.html http://www.infowars.com/rebels-admit-responsibility-for-chemical-weapons-attack/ http://www.mintpressnews.com/witnesses-of-gas-attack-say-saudis-supplied-rebels-with-chemical-weapons/168135/ http://www.infowars.com/exclusive-syrians-in-ghouta-claim-saudi-supplied-rebels-behind-chemical-attack/  Disclaimers and caveats: a) It seems to me that these sources quote each other a lot; this might be because everybody else is trying hard to look away from this story. b) I also heard another explanation which says that a group of CIA agents

Russia takes more measures to respond to the threat of a US military attack against Syria

First, the leaders of the Russian Duma have decided to send a Parliamentary delegation to the USA to meet with their counterparts in Congress.  The intention here is clearly to lobby for a ‘no’  vote to Obama’s request for a Congressional approval for a US attack on Syria.Second, the Russian Navy is sending a specialized intelligence ship – called the Priazovie – to the waters off the Syrian coast to

And now, a few words from the Ziocrazies on the Hill

LOL! This did not take too long. According to the WSJ, “two key Republican Senate lawmakers gave notice that despite President Barack Obama‘s pledge to seek congressional authorization for a potential military strike against Syria, they wouldn’t support a limited attack that fell short of changing the momentum on the battlefield.” Hardly a surprise.But this a great way to achieve a complete deadlock. If Obama wants only a “shot across

Obama folds, but this is far from over

Great news!  Obama announced that he is going to go to Congress to seek a vote on military action against Syria.  There is little doubt in my mind that what happened is that Obama’s advisers (possibly Hegel and Dempsey at the JCS) found a way to “spread the blame” for the inevitable accusation of “losing face” with Congress.  From their point of view this is a win-win move: their Congress

Putin dares Obama to bring his evidence to the UNSC

Important note: the word “provocation” in the English voice-over is a mistranslation from the Russian word провокация (“provokatsia”) which, in this context, clearly means “false flag operation”.  Putin is unambiguously stating that he knows that the Syrian military did not use chemical weapons but that this was a staged event.

Why is Russia sending a naval task force to the eastern Mediterranean?

Over the past few days the Internet has been buzzing with reports about the Russian Navy sending warships including possibly guided missile cruisers (the Kerch, the Varyag, the Moskva are often mentioned), while Russian sources mention the large anti-submarine ship Admiral Panteleyev and various support vessels.  Russian officials have made contradictory statements about how many ships are being send and which ships exactly would join the Russian flotilla, but the

The “sissy option” in Syria will send a message alright – but not the one the Anglosphere intends to send

All the latest leaks seem to be pointing to the same scenario: Obama would order ‘limited’ strikes on ‘key’ targets to ‘send a message’ to Assad.  Ok, let’s look into that.First, this probably means that cruise missiles will be used, but little or no air strikes.  We will come back later to this one.Second, what are ‘limited’ strikes.  We are talking about high visibility static targets such as security services

Words spoken today – three quotes which say it all

  “It’s got to be done quickly. Bang, boom. And then let the chips fall where they may. But no more dead kids breathing poison gas.” Bill O’Reilly “We have two options: either to surrender, or to defend ourselves with the means at our disposal. The second choice is the best: we will defend ourselves“ Syrian foreign minister Walid al-Muallem “The West behaves towards the Islamic world like a monkey

What do recent US/NATO/Israeli military aggressions tell us about what might happen next in Syria?

During his emergency press conference today Foreign Minister Lavrov said something to the effect that attempting to predict the future is not a helpful exercise and I will not argue with this wise man.  However, Lysander did ask an interesting question today: Is it possible that a NATO air campaign might still fail in removing the government?  I think that while attempting to predict the future is, indeed, a useless

Syria: US-al-Qaeda-Zionist coalition gets its way – war against Syria appears inevitable

According to RT the ‘Syrian’ insurgents have now used the excuse of the (false flag) chemical attack to refuse to attend the Geneva II conference:“We refused to speak about Geneva after what’s happened. We must punish this dictator, Bashar the Chemist we call him, and then we can discuss Geneva,” coalition Secretary General Badr Jamous told Reuters, after a meeting with international opposition backers Friends of Syria in Istanbul.  This

Russian TV report shows insurgent chemical weapons lab seized by Syrian forces

The video below is the footage shown on Russian TV of the chemical weapons laboratory recently seized by Syrian government forces in the Ghouta neighborhood of Damascus.  The footage has been taken by a crew of reporters from the Izvestia newspaper and is here shown with a voiceover commentary by the Rossia 1 “Vesti” news report.  I am sorry that I cannot provide a translation for the commentary, but I

US fabricated excuses for military intervention from Markale to Ghouta?

One of the labels which I have been using more and more recently is the “Bosnia v5 Chechnia v4 Kosovo v3 Libya v2 Syria v1” which refers to the fact that the Empire uses exactly the same trick over and over again to justify its military aggressions.Though history is replete with false flag attacks, the end of the Cold War saw a systematization of a specific complex of measures designed
