Trump, the Deep State Junta, and the Mysterious Motives for Regime Change in the Middle East

Globalists, both for and against Trump, are working to steer his foreign policy into the Middle East region and Syria specifically, and they are using the classic tactic of problem-reaction-solution to do so.

With rising geopolitical tensions from North Korean missile tests, direct threats from a desperate EU President Juncker, endless Russian conspiracy theories, and open calls for sedition among Washington swamp rats, the all-out war between President Trump and Globalists foreign and domestic finally came to a head when the administration may have used, you guessed it, a false flag operation to justify a tomahawk missile strike against Assad’s forces.

The pure geopolitical expediencies of such a move are apparent. Yes, it’s a show of force and a demonstration of political brinkmanship responding to aggression from North Korea, the seemingly ambivalent Chinese, and the ravings of the hysterical Juncker. And yes, it also helps to cast doubt on the Russian collusion conspiracy theory that the left peddles, as Russia has been trying to break out of post-World War II containment, into the Middle East, and finally into resource-rich Africa. Syria and Iran have been client states of the Russians since the Soviet era expressly for this purpose.

But maybe more importantly, the Trump administration is reasserting the US’s intent to serve as the primary guarantor of security for the region, a role which was relinquished by the US during the Obama administration’s failure to enforce their own red line policy. That role is now entrusted to the Russians, who began drawing up lucrative energy development and European pipeline agreements with Middle Eastern nations who had rejected the destabilization of Hillary Clinton’s “Arab Spring” operations in places like Libya, Egypt and Syria.

But one question still remains: was striking Syria worth the political cost? and the unwavering support of Trump’s voter base? Is this really a course of action that the President would have himself formulated? And why would the Trump administration choose to respond to growing tensions with action in the Middle East? Why not stage a false flag in the Ukraine? or in the South China Sea to address the Globalists directly? What is this long-running, Globalist fixation with interventionism and regime change in the Middle East? And most importantly, why would the Globalists precipitate Trump’s brinkmanship, and praise him when he prevails over them?

I believe Globalists, both for and against Trump, are working to steer his foreign policy into the Middle East region and Syria specifically, and they are using the classic tactic of problem-reaction-solution to do so. Trump finds himself between a rock and a hard place, Trumps authorizes his military to carry out an unpopular missile strike, and then Trump’s approval rating mysteriously shoots up to 50% and the fake media suddenly start praising him? This is classic Pavlovian stimulus-response conditioning, or pressure from above and pressure from below to use the proper Gnostic terminology. Neocon warhawks are already calling for full-scale invasions, and H.R. McMaster has already made plans to insert 150,000 soldiers into the country.

…the New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, Wall Street Journal and New York Daily News—offered no opinion space to anyone opposed to Donald Trump’s Thursday night airstrikes. By contrast, the five papers ran a total of 18 op-eds, columns or “news analysis” articles (dressed-up opinion pieces) that either praised the strikes or criticized them for not being harsh enough…

But we still have the question of what do the Globalists want from the Middle East? To answer this question, we must go to Iraq, back to the aftermath of the Iraq War invasion and the beginning of the occupation. At the time, Operation Iraqi Freedom was viewed largely as a success, but there was one glaring failure that even the media could not overlook  – the looting of the National Museum of Iraq located in Baghdad.

Cuneiforms

Those who know of the history of Iraq know that between the Tigris and Euphrates lies the fertile crescent and Mesopotamia, where the world’s first civilizations sprung up from seemingly nothing. While humans across the globe were still hunter-gathering nomads, seemingly fully-developed cultures with knowledge of agriculture, cuneiform writing, basic math and astronomy, two story houses, and a serious emphasis on record keeping and issuing receipts just popped up in places like Sumer, Ur, Babylon, and Akkad.

Considering that most historians had thought cities like Babylon to be a myth until its discovery in 1811 by Claudius Rich, these apparently anachronistic aspects of Mesopotamian cultures have puzzled academics, and no satisfactory answer has been given to try to explain this second “great leap forward” in human history. But the speculation may not be necessary as the Sumerians themselves admit in their creation story, just like the ancient Egyptians and the Zulu tribes of Africa, that they are a legacy civilization spawned from the fall of an older, greater civilization. Of course, this mode of thinking is in direct conflict with the standard Western model of human history, which considers the present period of Globalist feudalism and Orwellian thought control as the height of human progress.

According to the Sumerian texts, the cause of this fall was a sort of family feud among the “Gods,” similar to the quarrels of the Greek pantheon, which turned into a massive war and the destruction and diaspora of that ancient high civilization not unlike Plato’s account of the sinking of Atlantis. The Egyptians and the Zulu have maintained their creation stories via the oral tradition of their own mystery schools, but the Sumerians, with their aptitude toward cuneiform record-keeping, have transcribed that information to protect it from distortion and embellishment.

And it is these cuneiform records, or perhaps what they reveal about early human history and the fall, are what the Globalists are after and have been after for centuries. All of which brings us back to the looting of the National Museum of Iraq. The footage of Iraqi nationals walking away from the smashed museum with whatever they could carry was deemed a travesty, and the US military was heavily criticized for their inability to secure the site. And that became the narrative- that the looting was an unfortunate byproduct of a lack of law and order. But as time passed, more details came to light.

The story of what really happened inside the Iraq Museum when thousands of valuable antiquities were stolen in the immediate aftermath of the 2003 US invasion has been revealed in a new book.

Written by the chief investigator, it says there were three separate thefts, at least one of which was an inside job, another the work of professionals, and a third where fleeing Iraq military had left open a door which let in the looters.

The above-ground storage rooms told a different story. Here was where looters had struck, getting in via a door left open by Iraqi soldiers who, even as they fled, discarded their uniforms in a trail of clothing.

Revealed: the real story behind the great Iraq Museum thefts

One of these thefts resulted in the loss of a collection of 80,000 cuneiform tablets, and unless you think the average Iraqi looking to make a quick buck would skip the fancy vases and ceremonial masks and go straight for the massive cuneiform collection, I suspect that this recorded knowledge was the true goal of these thefts. And I also suspect that these “Iraqi soldiers” who discarded their uniforms may not have been Iraqi soldiers at all.

So who all was involved? It seems that the Globalists in the Bush and Obama administrations were not the only ones interested in this ancient knowledge. The other world power that has consistently demonstrated an interest in Mesopotamia archaeology has been the Germans.

The Germans

In 1902, noted German Assyriologist and linguist Friedrich Delitzsch began sharing through his lectures a shocking discovery he had made during his research of cuneiform tablets. In fact, his work was so provocative, Delitzsch was ordered to present his research before Kaiser Wilhelm and his court. The lecture, titled Babel and Bible, revealed that the proper name of the Jewish god of the Old Testament, Yahweh, had appeared in cuneiform writing during the age of Hammurabi and 300 years before the Israelite’s Exodus from Egypt. Delitzsch also noticed striking similarities between Sumerian creation myths and the Old Testament’s Garden of Eden. He tied the great flood of the Epic of Gilgamesh to the story of Noah’s Ark. According to Delitzsch, the Hebrew Bible, and therefore the Old Testament, was clearly and significantly influenced by Sumerian mythology.

What Delitzsch was discovering was that the Jews had been heavily assimilated to Babylonian culture during their 70 year period of captivity. The practice of monotheism slowly replaced polytheism in Judaism around this time. The introduction of the Hebrew alphabet, along with a new emphasis of referencing the Torah for matters of every day life, appear to be inspired by the Sumerian fixation with record keeping and written language. The cuneiform records were, indeed, telling an interesting story.

It was at this time German foreign policy changed from a sole emphasis on facilitating trade and access to ports, to a policy that included subversion, bribery and propaganda to keep other world powers out of the Middle East. Only four years prior, Kaiser Wilhelm had toured the region, and was advised to back the Pan-Islamism of the slowly unraveling Ottoman Empire. According to the Kaiser’s policy makers, the Ottoman Empire was pushing the Muslim identity and their self-proclaimed status as an Islamic caliphate due to the rebellion of Southern European Christians. The Ottomans wanted to unite the remaining Muslim-majority populace to end the encroachment of Nationalism into their territory.

At first, the Kaiser’s advisors were not interested in saving the Ottomans, they were instead interested in using Pan-Islamism, and later Jihad, to subvert British colonies in India and Egypt as well as French colonies in Morocco and Algeria. But when the German-backed Young Turks came into power in 1908, the stage was set for World War I, and the consequences of the Ottoman alliance turned out to be disastrous for the Germans.

And thus came the Nazis, who would widen the search for ancient knowledge to the Peruvian Andes and Tibet, and also substantially expanded the Kaiser’s policies to include the fomenting of Jihad and terrorism against other Western powers. As soon as Adolf Hitler became Chancellor of Germany in 1933, he met with and formed an alliance with the Sunni Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Amin al-Husseini, who would later lead the Palestinian revolt against the British and actively encourage the extermination of Jews. The Nazis would also form allegiances with the Ba’ath Party, the Muslim Brotherhood, and the Young Egypt Movement.

But the Grand Mufti would ultimately fail to spark the Pan-Islamic revolution the Nazis wanted when his rebellion ended in 1939. Undeterred, the Germans continued to back other Pan-Islamists and Arab Nationalist strong men like the Shah of Iran, Said Barre in Somalia, and Ba’athists like Saddam Hussein. But the Pan-Islamic Jihad revolution never materialized, and many of these Pan-Arab regimes just so happened to be the same regimes mentioned in Wesley Clark’s infamous “7 nations in 5 years” remark in March of 2007. And if you’ll recall, the “7 nations” regime change plan was a direct response to the attacks of 9/11.

Covert War

And now we have come full circle, back to the Iraq war of 2003, and the baffling continuation of regime change policy today. Although President Trump claims he will not invade Syria or interfere further with the Middle East, I believe the Globalist splinter group backing Trump will continue that policy against their German Globalist rivals. Whether the fake media will cover their insatiable lust for hidden knowledge and lost secrets is extremely doubtful.

You may have noticed Neocon warhawks like H.R. McMaster and Dina Powell taking power in the National Security Council, but President Trump’s choice for Director of National Intelligence, Dan Coats, is particularly telling. According to Wikipedia:

From August 15, 2001, to February 28, 2005, Coats was the United States Ambassador to Germany.[19][20] As ambassador during the lead-up to the Iraq war, he pressured the German government not to oppose the war, threatening worsened US relations with Germany.[21] As Ambassador he also played a critical role in establishing robust relations with then opposition leader Angela Merkel and in the construction of a new United States Embassy in the heart of Berlin next to the Brandenburg Gate.[22]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dan_Coats

And note that the Berlin embassy Coats helped build was revealed by Edward Snowden in 2013 to be the same embassy that facilitated British and American spying on Angela Merkel’s personal phone.

So I am forced to speculate that there is indeed a covert war between German and American Globalists in the Middle East, but exactly what they are after remains murky. Could it be an ancient story of the origins of humanity? Or occulted knowledge providing insight into the mysterious structures of the universe? Could it be forbidden technology? Could it be all of these things?

Whatever it is, American Globalists have been using Arab Spring operations and ISIS cutouts to continue their pillaging of ancient sites and antiquities in other regime change nations like Egypt, Libya, and Syria.

And, when the Globalists have what they want, they simply order their ISIS agents to blow up and level whatever ancient site they are assigned to desecrate, thereby depriving anybody else from learning what they had just learned. Because things like culture, history, and art are irrelevant to the Globalists’ insatiable, sociopathic, psychotic desire for power. If President Trump allows these Rockefeller Republican, warhawk Neocons to bog the US down in another big Middle Eastern quagmire, the political consequences in 2020 may be insurmountable, and the era of Globalist tyranny will continue.

The Immigration Order and Shutting Down the ISIS Ratline

The Saudi and Qatari agents and other Globalist assets working in these jihadist organizations, and probably a proportion of the jihadis themselves, will try to escape the Middle East via these refugee flows, or face death.

In keeping with his campaign promise of “extreme vetting,” the President issued an executive order Friday putting a 90 day halt on refugee resettlement to facilitate the development of a more adequate vetting system. President Trump also negotiated with Saudi Arabia to help establish safe zones in Syria and Yemen.

But of course, the knee-jerk reaction of the Democratic establishment is fueled purely by emotion and rhetoric as a simple review of the facts must be avoided at all costs. Ignore what the dishonest media are calling a “global[ist] backlash” to the “muslim ban” because we’ve known, for nearly a year now, that ISIS agents have been using refugee flows to infiltrate Western countries.

Terrorism Suspects Are Posing as Refugees, Germany Says

A few months later, we learned exactly how ISIS runs this operation.

Tracing the path of four terrorists sent to Europe by the Islamic State

And we now know that jihadis posing as refugees participated in the Paris terror attacks in 2015 and the Berlin truck attack this past Christmas.

So what would be the natural consequence when President Trump proceeds to “knock the hell out of ISIS?” The Saudi and Qatari agents and other Globalist assets working in these jihadist organizations, and probably a proportion of the jihadis themselves, will try to escape the Middle East via these refugee flows, or face death. And the dupes in the Democratic establishment, the dishonest media and their discredited pundits welcome this opportunity for the jihadis. This form of bleeding-heart myopia being encouraged among Progressives is simply an instance of the Dunning-Kruger effect. These bubble dwellers and low-information voters are attracted to the personality-driven politics of clueless pundits, and the vast majority don’t actually take the time to read between the headlines and narratives, flesh out the factions and alliances, and figure out the nuts and bolts of reality.

But it is imperative that one examine this situation quite closely, as the historical parallels are even more chilling. During the aftermath of World War II, ratlines and arrangements like Operation Paperclip and Gehlen Org, were used by Nazi war criminals to escape the trials at Nuremberg. Rather than sitting in a Bavarian jail cell, Nazi leaders were placed in influential positions in sensitive government agencies such as NASA and the CIA while others, disguised as “Catholic immigrants and refugees,” escaped to countries like Argentina, Spain, Paraguay, Colombia, Brazil, Uruguay, Chile, Bolivia, Switzerland, Australia, Canada, Indonesia, and Egypt.

Following the death of Nazism as an ideology, the German industrial conglomerates and the shadowy secret societies responsible for the rise of fascism in Germany, namely the Thule Society, the Teutonic Knights, and all the other weirdo occultists who followed Karl Maria Wiligut, decided to regroup with their newfound friends in the American deep state. It was at that moment, the current Globalist framework of the centralization paradigm, i.e. corporate-lead tyranny, pay-to-play politics, the military-industrial complex, the abrogation of rights for the sake of national security, media control, Racialism as a sociopolitical tool, a hefty dose of perception management AKA Weltanschauungskrieg, and most prominently, the perpetual war against boogeymen such as the Global War on Terror, was formulated. The tactics are almost exactly the same, the fascists have simply rebranded themselves as the Globalists.

It is from these Globalists and their billionaire friends at the banks that we get the so-called “Third Way” politicians such as the Neoliberal Clinton machine and the Neoconservative Bush dynasty, along with their European counterparts at the head of the EU and Germany, who are dealing with their own refugee crisis at this very moment.

And as it just so happens, it was the Nazis who, for decades prior to and during World War II, saw value in fomenting a jihad to eject the British and French out of the Middle East. Hitler’s Arab toady, Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Amin al-Husseini, relished in Hitler’s extermination of the Jews, and in January of 1941, an agreement was made to transfer to the Mufti’s Islamic Volunteers all of the necessary technology and technical knowledge to establish concentration camps in the Middle East.

But the Grand Mufti wanted more. According to Barry Rubin and Wolfgang G. Schwanitz in their excellent book Nazis, Islamists, And The Making Of The Modern Middle East:

But al-Husaini’s ambitions went further. He wanted German backing not only to wipe out the Jews in the Middle East but also to make him ruler over all Arabs. In exchange for Berlin’s backing, he pledged to bring the Muslims and Arabs into an alliance with Germany; spread Nazi ideology; promote German trade; and “wage terror,” in his own words, against the British and French.

The Nazis were eager for this partnership. They established special relationships with the Muslim Brotherhood [emphasis added], the Ba’ath Party, the Young Egypt movement, and radical factions in Syria, Iraq, and Palestine. Berlin also hoped to build links with the kings of Egypt and Saudi Arabia.(Rubin and Schwanitz, 2014, pg. 4)

This specific link to the Muslim Brotherhood is crucial as it represents the fine, golden thread that connects the Fascists’ plans in the Middle East decades ago with today’s debate surrounding Syrian refugee flows. We must remember that it was the Globalist, open borders candidate Hillary Clinton, who had as her closest personal aide Huma Abedin. Abedin’s connections to the Muslim Brotherhood are well known. Her mother, Saleha Abedin, occupies a senior position at the International Islamic Council for Da’wa and Relief, serving with its chairman, Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, leader of the Muslim Brotherhood.

After seven decades, the names and the faces might change, but the geopolitical strategy and the overarching goals do not. Terrorism, jihad, and Racialism are still being used by the fascists to bully and shame the people of a country into welcoming the enemy into their homes again, but this time, the rats are jihadis instead of Nazis. With this immigration order, the President is absolutely correct in shutting down another ratline operation being run by the very same post-war Nazis and American Deep State agents that ran the previous one.

Russia, Turkey, and Israel Plot the End of the Syrian War

Washington has offered European energy markets in exchange for Israeli support for toppling Assad, but Israel has fashioned its own deal with – you guessed it – Putin.

While President Obama uses his remaining time in office campaigning for Hillary Clinton, and possibly violating the Hatch Act, Vice President Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry have been busy trying to mend bridges with Israel. After the discovery of the Tamar and Leviathan natural gas reserves under the Mediterranean Sea, Israel now has the potential to become a player in the world energy markets. As Russian oil is being cut off from energy-hungry Europe via the battles over Ukrainian and Syrian pipelines, the Globalists want Israeli gas to fill the void in the market.

Russia, Turkey, Israel and a New Balance of Power – F. William Engdahl

But the division between the US and Israel has only widened since the passage of the Iran nuclear deal, which the Israelis were violently opposed to, even threatening to bomb Iranian nuclear facilities. Washington has offered European energy markets in exchange for Israeli support for toppling Assad, but Israel has fashioned its own deal with – you guessed it – Putin.

“Imagine the horror then on John Kerry’s ashen stone face when he learned of another development involving Turkey and Israel. Erdogan, reportedly on Israeli urging, extended a public apology to Russia for the November, 2015 shoot-down of the Russian jet, and agreed to pay compensation to the Russian state and the family of the murdered pilot. Erdogan did the unexpected. He publicly apologized and met all Russian preconditions for restoring diplomatic relations. There is an old New York expression, ‘The fly in the soup,’ indicating some detail that ruins the broth. For Kerry, Washington and the oligarchs who run them, Putin has just become the huge Russian Brown Bear in the US Middle East soup.”

After Erdogan restored relations with Russia, Netanyahu welcomed Russian financial assistance and investment with the Leviathan and Tamar ventures. Now, Russia has replaced the US as the deal maker, and may have found a way to circumvent the West’s barriers to the European market. What’s more, Russia has also taken over Syrian air space with their S-series missile systems, so any attempt by Washington to interfere with the pipelines would precipitate a war. In order for Israel, Turkey, and Russia to fully benefit from this arrangement, the war in Syria must end, and joining with the US in their five year quagmire against Assad is antithetical to Israeli goals for the region. Since Turkey sits on the doorstep of Europe, how can this arrangement actually penetrate into the EU?

The loss of Britain from the EU means that the only remaining economic counterweight to the German powerhouse is Italy. As it turns out, Italy has suffered severely under the Russian sanctions over Crimea as well as the Syrian refugee crisis, and now Italian, French, and German politicians have discussed and met with their Russian counterparts to put an end to the sanctions. Part of that effort may involve the deals already being made by Israel and Turkey, and Italy could be a part of that deal as it lies between Europe and the Middle East.

And there are some very, very tenuous clues that Italy is wandering off of the reservation. If you read the previous article concerning Obama’s executive order on space weather, I speculated that both the Globalists in Washington as well as the Russians have sparingly used covert tectonic weaponry as a means to overcome the nuclear deterrent. If, and it’s a very big if, this type of covert warfare has extended into Europe, then it might explain why Italy has been ravaged by four destructive earthquakes in just three months. And if Italy has been attacked covertly, it probably wouldn’t have been at the behest of the Russians.

The Wikileaks Podesta Emails Part II: Syria, ISIS, and Sunnis

“So all of a sudden this intervention that people talk about so glibly becomes an American and NATO involvement where you take a lot of civilians. In Libya we didn’t have that problem.”

Despite the fact that Julian Assange is doing his part to withhold the more sensitive communications from the public, these leaks still have some very revealing information buried in them. The speeches to Hillary’s well-heeled friends in particular really might contain enough information to justify the speaking fee. Their purpose is to give her donors a heads up or inside knowledge to be used to their benefit financially and politically if Clinton makes office. The unwashed masses are going to have to make do with lies, empty promises, and half-truths.

Saudi Arabia and Qatar Funding ISIS

In an email Podesta sent to Hillary Clinton in September of 2014,  Podesta mentions that the Saudis and Qataris have been secretly funding ISIS since 2014, and the two nations are competing for influence over Sunnis in the region.

“This entire effort should be done with a low profile, avoiding the massive traditional military operations that are at best temporary solutions. While this military/para-military operation is moving forward, we need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments of Qatar and Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region. This effort will be enhanced by the stepped up commitment in the KRG. The Qataris and Saudis will be put in a position of balancing policy between their ongoing competition to dominate the Sunni world and the consequences of serious U.S. pressure.”

https://www.wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/3774#searchresult

Following the passage of the Iran deal, the political loss of Iraq to the Iranian Shia sect, and an uprising of Houthi rebels in Yemen, it’s very clear that Iran is attempting to knock Saudi Arabia off as the dominate power in the region. The Saudis’ answer is to contain the offensive and use political pressure and lobbying in Washington to reverse the Iran deal and deprive the Iranians of a nuclear bomb, which would counterbalance the Saudi’s own nuclear armaments. The strait of Hormuz, a gateway in and out of the Persian gulf and part of a crucial maritime trade route for oil tankers, is now witnessing Iranian-Italian naval drills, Saudi naval drills, Iranian threats of mining and provocations on US ships.

A Lack of Vetting and Jihadis Infiltrating Refugee Flows

Hillary admits that refugees fleeing the Syrian war to Jordan and Turkey cannot be vetted properly in a transcript of a paid speech given to the Jewish United Fund of Metropolitan Chicago’s Vanguard Luncheon on October 28, 2013. She also acknowledges that there’s no way to know if ISIS agents are infiltrating migrant flows.

“So I think you’re right to have gone to the places that you visited because there’s a discussion going on now across the region to try to see where there might be common ground to deal with the threat posed by extremism and particularly with Syria which has everyone quite worried, Jordan because it’s on their border and they have hundreds of thousands of refugees and they can’t possibly vet all those refugees so they don’t know if, you know, jihadists are coming in along with legitimate refugees. Turkey for the same reason.”

WikiLeaks: Hillary Clinton Said Jordan ‘Can’t Possibly Vet All Those Refugees’ from Syria; ‘Jihadists Are Coming in Along with Legitimate Refugees’

Open Borders

Hillary told a bunch of Brazilian bankers about her dream of turning North America into the EU, and dissolving borders.

“My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders, some time in the future with energy that is as green and sustainable as we can get it, powering growth and opportunity for every person in the hemisphere.”

https://wikileaks.org/podesta-emails/emailid/927

Intervening in Syria

During a 2013 speech to Goldman Sach CEO’s, Hillary complains about how agents of US foreign policy are having much more difficulty acting covertly on the world stage due to loose lips with the media. Clinton also bemoans the inability of the US to gain a tactical toehold in Syria without killing lots of civilians. Russian S-300 and S-400 missile systems have prevented American domination of Syrian airspace over the battlefield.

“And there is still an argument that goes on inside the administration and inside our friends at NATO and the Europeans. How do intervene — my view was you intervene as covertly as is possible for Americans to intervene. We used to be much better at this than we are now. Now, you know, everybody can’t help themselves. They have to go out and tell their friendly reporters and somebody else: Look what we’re doing and I want credit for it, and all the rest of it.”

“But the idea that we would have like a no fly zone — Syria, of course, did have when it started the fourth biggest Army in the world. It had very sophisticated air defense systems. They’re getting more sophisticated thanks to Russian imports. To have a no fly zone you have to take out all of the air defense, many of which are located in populated areas. So our missiles, even if they are standoff missiles so we’re not putting our pilots at risk — you’re going to kill a lot of Syrians. So all of a sudden this intervention that people talk about so glibly becomes an American and NATO involvement where you take a lot of civilians. In Libya we didn’t have that problem. It’s a huge place. The air defenses were not that sophisticated and there wasn’t very — in fact, there were very few civilian casualties. That wouldn’t be the case. And then you add on to it a lot of the air defenses are not only in civilian population centers but near some of their chemical stockpiles. You do not want a missile hitting a chemical stockpile.”

GOLDMAN-SACHS-SPEECHES

Of course, none of this is really coming out of left field, and most of these emails are a few years old, but they do finally corroborate the suspicions and allegations being made against the US and the Saudis in regards to recent events in the middle east. Thanks to Wikileaks we now know this insider information, and we didn’t have to pay her one red cent for it.

The Tactical Situation Around the Siege of Aleppo

Both sides are committing massive resources to take Syria’s largest city, and many commentators are characterizing this battle as decisive for the entire war.

The ill-fated ceasefire between Assad and the “moderate Syrian rebels” broke down quickly after a Syrian army base was accidentally bombed by US forces and the destruction of a U.N. aid convoy was blamed on the Russians. Assad’s army quickly decided to continue operations to take Aleppo, which was pinched off from the rest of the line by Kurdish and Syrian Army advances in late July and under siege ever since. Virginia State Senator Richard Black’s analysis sets the stage quite well.

Both sides are committing massive resources to take Syria’s largest city, and many commentators are characterizing this battle as decisive for the entire war. A few days after Assad’s army took Castello Road, cutting off the last supply line to the “Aleppo pocket,” Al-Qaeda/Nusra forces attempted to break out. A force of 8-10 thousand al-Qaeda/Nusra jihadists armed with rocket launchers, suicide vests and 95 tanks (yes, that’s an al-Qaeda tank brigade) attempted to push north out of the pocket to secure their last supply line via Castello Road. Another al-Qaeda/Nusra army of about 30,000 attempted to push in from the outside, focusing both offensives on one section of the Syrian army’s cordon in order to break through. The cordon held and the breakout was a failure, and back-and-forth fighting continued throughout August with neither side gaining an advantage until the ceasefire was signed on September 11th.

1006aleppo

As stated earlier, it was a short-lived ceasefire, but the al-Qaeda/Nusra forces dwelling in the city appear to be weakening from the siege. Although the opposition was able to repel another advance seeking to cut through the middle and divide the pocket, Assad’s army was able to gain ground in the north of the city with assistance from the Kurds. Clearing out and incorporating the pocket into Assad’s territory is expected to take weeks if not longer, and 20 civilians were killed and 100 injured from Assad’s airstrikes on the city. According to Senator Black, Syrian Army forces are allowing civilians to leave Aleppo freely, and have proven that they can be trusted to allow the evacuations. However, al-Qaeda/Nusra jihadists in the city are reportedly not allowing civilians to leave, and killed 26 people out of a group that attempted it.

While the Army Chief of Staff was rattling his saber in Washington, the UN envoy to Syria Staffan de Mistura tabled a plan to allow al-Qaeda/Nusra forces in the city to leave peaceably. Assad and Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov agreed to it, knowing that the US would have to go along and convince the jihadists to relinquish the city if saving civilians is of paramount concern. As of a few hours ago, the UN envoy’s suggestion was rejected by al-Qaeda/Nusra, who are determined to break the siege despite the odds.

Russia beats U.S. to punch on Syria ‘no-fly-zone’

 

Syria Truce Broken, Russia Raises the Stakes

By following the usual Brzezinski strategy of using PR, media pressure, and consensus building to generate soft power via political and social channels, the West hoped to metagame the battlefield once again.

The tenuous ceasefire that began September 12th between US and Russian proxies in Syria has now completely unraveled. On the 17th, an “accidental” US airstrike against a Syrian Army base killed 63 pro-Assad soldiers. Immediately after the strike, ISIS forces entrenched and surrounding the base advanced and attempted to take it. Although the US claims the attack was aborted as soon as they were notified of the error, the Russians countered that the jets left the area only after Russian S-300 anti-aircraft defenses had locked onto them.

WARNING : Russia Issues New “Rules of Engagement” in Syria: Any Aircraft Threatening the Syrian Army WILL BE SHOT DOWN (US/Turkey/Israel in the cross-hairs!)

After only 5 days, the leaders and strategists of the US are pushing the truce to its limits. Although one could argue that the airstrikes may have been a genuine result of a failure to coordinate between the two countries, the US has rejected Russia’s calls for closer cooperation in Syria for months. Immediately after the incident, the Russians issued new rules of engagement regarding the targeting of planes, stating any plane threatening Syrian Army Forces would be shot down.

On Monday, only a couple of days after the accidental airstrike, a UN convoy delivering aid to rural areas was attacked, destroying 18 out of 31 vehicles. The US described it as a Russian airstrike, presumably retaliation for the incident at the Syrian Army base, but the UN has not confirmed this. The Russians deny the accusation, citing a lack of craters on the road and disabled vehicles with their frames still intact as evidence large bombs were not used.

When the Russians denied the US any further plausible deniability for “accidental” airstrikes by redefining the rules of engagement, the Trilateral strategists decided to pin the aid convoy atrocity on the Russians using their tired, old strategy of false flags to obfuscate and manipulate the context of the situation. By following the usual Brzezinski strategy of using PR, media pressure, and consensus building to generate soft power via political and social channels, the West hoped to metagame the battlefield once again. Having no intentions to compromise with the Russians and knowing that the Syrian war, and therefore Syrian war refugee migration, would continue, the Globalists began publicly pooling money to throw at the immigration crisis to prevent refugees from leaving Turkey and entering Europe. George Soros himself gave $500 million out of the total $650 million.

George Soros offers $500 million for refugee crisis. Will it help?

While the billionaires were out shaking their cups, Joe Biden was attending a Council on Foreign Relations meeting where he accused 5 EU states including Germany, France and Italy of going soft on Russia. Despite the fact that sanctions on Russia have damaged European economies and angered business owners, the Globalists are still trying to strengthen their support and reinforce their narrative necessitating sanctions.

Recognizing all of these things for what they were, the Russians and the Assad regime ended the truce the very next day by striking deep into the Syrian Opposition’s command structure on Wednesday.

30 Israeli, Foreign Intelligence Officers Killed in Russia’s Caliber Missile Attack in Aleppo

Several US, Turkish, Saudi, Qatari and British officers were also killed along with the Israeli officers. The foreign officers who were killed in the Aleppo operations room were directing the terrorists’ attacks in Aleppo and Idlib.

Syria regime announces new Aleppo offensive as truce collapses

If this Iranian news is correct, then the Russians have taken the gloves off and bypassed their proxies to attack their enemies directly. A day after the Russian missile attack on the Aleppo command center, Assad’s forces announced that they would be restarting their campaign to invade and take over Aleppo. The Russian response is clear: they know what the West was trying to do with the UN convoy attack, they consider it an aggressive act, and they won’t let the West negotiate truces and ceasefires in bad faith to gain an advantage or stall.

Which brings us to today’s meetings in New York, which have failed to revive the truce. US Secretary of State John Kerry’s demands that Russia and Assad halt flights over active battle zones fell on deaf ears, and no agreement was reached. The Russians are not willing to give up the small air power advantage facilitated by their radar jamming and anti-aircraft batteries.

 

Erdogan Ends War on Assad, Gets Toppled

It’s not unusual for coups to take place while a dictator is away, but there is more to the picture and it has to do with Syria and the EU.

Parts of the Turkish military have locked down Istanbul, deployed tanks and helicopters in the capital of Ankara, and are now seizing control of the country after Erdogan went on vacation to the beach.

Turkey coup attempt: Army group says in control

It’s not unusual for coups to take place while a dictator is away, but there is more to the picture and it has to do with Syria and the EU. Two days ago Erdogan reversed course completely on his policy towards Assad and Putin’s involvement in stabilizing the Syrian war. Yes, Erdogan was taking a lot of flak for his use of state-sponsored terrorism and aiding ISIS, but the shifting attitudes in Europe towards the flow of refugees and migrants from the area represents a major issue for Turkey.

The widespread criticism and rejection of the EU’s immigration and border policy was a, if not the, major factor of the Brexit referendum. With Italy now demanding the same reforms and threatening to leave otherwise, it’s clear the backlash could cause fewer refugees to be admitted into Europe in the future. As Turkey shares a border with Syria, that means that fewer refugees will be passing through Turkey and more will end up staying in the country instead. This will put considerable strain on Turkish politics, economy and infrastructure. Therefore, Erdogan’s best option was to end hostilities with Assad and help Russia stabilize Syria to stem the ride of refugees. Which is exactly what he did:

Shifting Allegiances: Did Turkey Just Give Up on Toppling Assad?

Which is exactly what America and the western powers didn’t want him to do. The Pentagon is dead set on Assad’s collapse, and have resisted any course of action that could lead to a stalemate with Assad still in power. The west, and in particular the EU, has also been trying to use Turkish oil pipelines to compete with Russia in the European oil market and fuel the oil glut that has hurt the Russian ruble. Now that Erdogan refuses to play ball, he’s on the menu.
