    ‘The US has no rational policy for Syria’



    Published on 14 Oct 2016
    President Barack Obama and other top US government officials are weighing military
    action in Syria ahead of high-level meetings set to take place in Switzerland between
    the US, Russia and other countries. The United States is reportedly considering arming
    rebel groups in Syria. To discuss, RT America’s Manila Chan is joined by Daniel Kovalik,
    a professor at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law., who says “the US has no
    rational policy for Syria or rational plan for the Syrian people.”

    Dr Papadopoulos Sets BBC Straight on Syria and Russiaphobia in Britain

    October 13, 2016 By 21wire

    21st Century Wire says…

    Now here’s a rare sight: the BBC allowed a genuine dissenting voice on to its airwaves.

    Dr Marcus Papadopoulos, editor of Politics First, recently talked to the BBC News about the west’s massive disinformation campaign targeting Syria, and misinformation and Britain’s irrational fear-mongering over Russia.

    This week, British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson called for “demonstrations outside the Russian embassy”, because of of what Johnson alleges as “war crimes” Syria. It seems that Johnson’s dangerous rhetoric merely typifies a general level of ignorance and political malaise taking hold over the British Parliamentarians recently.

    This is an interesting segment from a 2013 interview where Putin explains briefly
    some of the cultural differences between Russia and America as he saw it ,
    obviously in a brief interview he could only give an overview but it still gives you a
    idea of his views....

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Putin on ideology - difference between Americans and Russians



    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This is from a couple days ago and just confirms Russia has no intention of
    initiating a major conflict from all the articles I have watched/ read recently
    or over the past few years , unless something drastic happens.

    Its more likely going to be the neo - con faction backed groups either in the
    White House , Pentagon or CIA or other agency or possibly by an ally ?

    More signs that Russia are unlikely to start a wider conflict and are
    keeping to local conflicts within its sphere of historic influence imo.....
    Of course this is subject to change by events and other players ie
    US and allies......

    This game is all about selling weapons by the big players and Russia
    is definitely open for business , which could lead to deeper conspiracy
    theory to who actually is pulling the strings behind the scenes to create
    all this death to feed off. But that's for other threads.....

    A spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin says his country could sell missile
    systems to neighboring Turkey in light of a rapprochement between Moscow and Ankara.

    Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Friday that Putin and his Turkish
    counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan had discussed potential arms deals during a meeting
    in Istanbul earlier this week.He said Russia would consider selling various missile defense
    systems to Turkey in case the latter wants them.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin is set to seal a deal with Indian Prime Minister Narendra
    Modi on the delivery of Moscow’s most advanced air defense system to New Delhi, the

    deal would be signed during an upcoming visit by the Russian president to India.

    "An agreement on the delivery of S-400 'Triumph' anti-missile defense systems and other
    deals will be signed as a result of the talks," Ushakov said in the Russian capital, Moscow,

    Russia says fulfilled delivery of S-300 missile systems to Iran
    Thu Oct 13, 2016 1:15PM

    Moscow has reportedly concluded the supply of the Russian-made S-300 surface-to-air
    missile defense systems to Iran.Russia’s RIA news agency quoted the Federal Service
    for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSVTS) as making the announcement on Thursday.

    “All divisions have been supplied,” said FSVTS Director Alexander Fomin.

    Russia delivered the first parts of the S-300, the missile tubes and radar equipment,
    to Iran in April.Moscow was committed to delivering the systems — which are used to
    target tactical and ballistic aircraft and projectiles — to Tehran under an $800-million
    deal in 2007.However, Russia banned the delivery of the systems to Tehran back in
    2010, citing the fourth round of the UN Security Council sanctions, which bars hi-tech
    weapons sales to the Islamic Republic.

    Russian news agencies quoted Russian Deputy Defence Minister Nikolai Pankov as
    saying on Friday, Russia is considering plans to restore military bases in Vietnam
    and Cuba that had served as pivots of Soviet global military power during the Cold
    War.The agencies quoted Pankov as saying in Russia's parliament, "We are dealing
    with this issue."As part of a drawing down of Russia's military presence around the
    world after the demise of the Soviet Union, Russia lowered its flag at the Lourdes
    signals intelligence base in Cuba and the deepwater Cam Rahn naval base in
    Vietnam in the early 2000s.

    can keep buying more. President Eisenhower who oversaw its creation during WW11
    saw its potential to get out of hand and did warn us and JFK was murdered partly
    to keep it going.

    The US has about 800 military bases in other countries, according to David Vine in

    Here's a notion that's shot into my head this morning. It contradicts everything I said in my last post on this subject in another thread but my mind is swinging around in all directions.

    Is it possible that Putin and whoever is really running American policy have reached an agreement on how to get out of the Islamic crisis. An agreement to re build the cold war and reverse back out of the 'war on terror', which may have gone off course, or simply is just too exposed as fake and so causing too much backlash?

    Snowden on Joe Biden: Nobody told VP Joe Biden what "covert operation" means

    RT Published time: 15 Oct, 2016 21:19
    Get short URL


    U.S. Vice President Joe Biden © Jim Young / Reuters

    Whistleblower Edward Snowden has made fun of US Vice President Joe Biden's announcement to respond to hack attacks, allegedly conducted by Russia, with a crafty counterstrike.

    Speaking to the host of NBC's "Meet the Press" earlier this week, Biden said that "at the time of our choosing, and under the circumstances that will have the greatest impact," Washington would exact revenge against Moscow for its alleged interference with the upcoming US elections.

    Such revelations about the kind of operation that is conventionally kept secret prompted the former NSA contractor to suggest that the top US official simply doesn't know how such things work. "I get the feeling nobody told VP Joe Biden what "covert operation" means," Snowden tweeted.

    Quote
    Edward Snowden Verified account ‏@Snowden

    I get the feeling nobody told @VP Joe Biden what "covert operation" means.

    This week, NBC News released a report suggesting that the CIA is planning a "clandestine" cyberattack on Russia, to "embarrass" its leadership for its alleged efforts to influence the US elections against Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

    Such warnings about a "wide-ranging operation" in reference to reports from US officials have been also ridiculed by WikiLeaks.

    Quote
    WikiLeaks Verified account ‏@wikileaks

    If the US "clandestine" pending cyberwar on Russia was serious:
    1) it would not have been announced
    2) it would be the NSA and not the CIA
    Despite the absurdity of such threats, Russia will take "precautionary measures," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said, adding that what's worrying is that such "unprecedented" threats are "being announced at the level of the US Vice President."

    "CIA preparing cyber attack to embarrass Russia"



    Published on 15 Oct 2016


    Russia has slammed the US for its "unprecedented threats" against Moscow over an
    alleged series of cyber attacks.The Kremlin said it would take necessary measures
    to protect its interests and vowed to respond to any cyber attacks from the US.
    This after Washington formally accused the Russian government of trying to
    interfere in its 2016 Presidential race through cyber attacks. US vice president says
    a message will be sent to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Joe Biden reiterated
    that the CIA is preparing a retaliatory attack to harass and embarrass the Kremlin
    Leadership. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has called the allegations
    baseless. Moscow-Washington relations have been dented in the past few years
    over the conflicts in Ukraine and Syria.

    I guess this should go here..

    This is something to look out for as we all know military exercises most commonly go with false flag attacks..

    I have tried to verify this but cannot find any other sources.

    Looks like Vigilant Shield and Global Thunder is going on as planned and scheduled to start tomorrow- perhaps tonight

    It seems Global Thunder is to do with ballistic missile defence systems

    http://www.globalsecurity.org/milita..._4_pb_2016.pdf

    This Program Element includes support for the Discrimination Improvements for Homeland Defense (DIHD) effort. The goal of this effort is to develop and field an
    integrated set of Element capabilities to improve BMDS effectiveness and resilience against the evolving threat. The end result will be a future BMDS architecture
    more capable of discriminating and destroying a re-entry vehicle with a high degree of confidence, improving Warfighter shot doctrine and preserving inventory.

    I could not find much on vigilant shield but i found some Vermont Guard exercises . i assume it is similar to these

    https://defensesystems.com/articles/...rotection.aspx

    The Vermont National Guard is gearing up for a cyber exercise to test its cyber warriors and civilian agencies in various aspects of cyber defense and response in the event of an attack on critical infrastructure. And Vermont’s units are looking for a cyber range to help them prepare.

    Mosul Offensive: On the frontline with Kurdish forces - BBC News


    Published on 17 Oct 2016
    An Iraqi operation to recapture the city of Mosul, the last stronghold of the so-
    called Islamic State (IS) in the country, is under way. Kurdish peshmerga forces
    are attacking from the east of Iraq's second city, while the Iraqi army is pushing
    from the south. The country's second city fell to the militants in June 2014, and it is
    central to the group's philosophy of a transnational Islamic caliphate.
    The BBC's Orla Guerin is with Kurdish Peshmerga forces east of Mosul.

    ‘Get lost’: Moscow to keep counter sanctions & other highlights from Putin's BRICS presser

    Published time: 16 Oct, 2016 21:04
    Get short URL


    Russian President Vladimir Putin attending BRICS summit in Goa, India © Mihail Metzel / Sputnik

    While meeting the media in Goa, southwest India, the Russian president was asked to comment on hot issues as the US elections, the situation in Ukraine and Syria, and his refusal to visit France, rather than Moscow's relations with its BRICS partners.

    Deteriorating Russia-US relations: 'It all started from Yugoslavia'
    Relations between Moscow and Washington did not deteriorate because of or during the Syrian conflict, Putin said in a remark to a journalist, adding: "Just remember what was going on about Yugoslavia, it all started from there." The Russian leader said that it's not about any third side in particular, but relations worsen because "one country" wants to impose its policy and decisions upon the rest of the world.

    "We are not against this country, but we oppose that decisions are made on a unilateral basis and are not thought through considering historic, cultural and religious peculiarities of one country or another," even if there is a conflict within the affected nation, Putin said.

    'Sanctions aim to suppress Russia's strength’
    The US does not accept compromises, which is necessary to solve issues in world politics. Rather, it chooses a "counterproductive" policy of sanctions, Putin said. "Apparently, they don't want to compromise, they only want to dictate. Such a style has formed over the past 15-20 years in the US, and they still can't deviate from it," Putin said, adding that restrictive measures never achieve the aims that those who impose them hope for.

    "Regarding sanctions against Russia, whatever they are said to be linked to, be it events in Ukraine or Syria, I assure you, the aims of those who formulate such a policy [of restrictions] do not solve any concrete problem," Putin told the media. Saying that "sanctions are aimed not at solving anything, but at suppressing Russia's strengthening" as a robust participant in international affairs, the president said that such intentions against Russia would never be fulfilled.

    Moscow, in turn, does not plan to ease its retaliatory measures, caused by western policies, the Russian leader told the journalists in Goa. "No way, they can get lost," he said.

    'US officials snoop and eavesdrop on everyone'
    Russia's president was not surprised with US Vice President Joe Biden's recent threats towards Moscow, and said that it's not the first time Russian-American relations have been "sacrificed" for the sake of a US presidential campaign. "One can expect anything from our American friends. What has he revealed that is new? Don't we already know that US officials snoop and eavesdrop on everyone," Putin said, adding that Washington "spends billions of dollars" on its secret services "spying not only on its potential opponents, but on its closest allies as well."

    Russia portrayed as US enemy to divert voters' attention from domestic problems
    Meanwhile, Russia is not going to meddle in the American presidential elections in any way, the president told reporters, adding that Moscow has no idea what could happen after a new US leader is elected. So far Hillary Clinton has chosen "an aggressive stance on Russia," and Donald Trump has called for cooperation, "at least in fighting terrorism," but "no one knows what it will be like after the elections," according to Putin, who said that both candidates might change their rhetoric.

    Creating an enemy out of Russia is a means by which to distract attention from domestic problems during election campaign season, according to Putin. "There are many problems [in the US], and in these circumstances, many choose to resort to the tried and tested system of diverting voters’ attention from their own problems. That’s what we are currently witnessing, I think."

    "Portraying Iran and the Iranian nuclear threat as an enemy didn’t work. [Portraying] Russia [as an enemy] seems more interesting. In my opinion, this particular card is now being actively played," Putin said.


    © Alexei Druzhinin / Sputnik

    It will be hard to settle the conflict in southeastern Ukraine with President Poroshenko's propensity to avoid political commitments adhering to the Minsk peace deal, Putin once again warned. Recently, the Ukrainian leader has said that Kiev would not proceed with a political process in the region, as the issue of security has not been solved in the troubled part of the country.

    "I think it's only a pretext to not do anything in the political sphere," the Russian president said, recalling Kiev's obligations to amend Ukraine's constitution, as mentioned in the peace deal. "If it's not done, it means that the current government are not ready to solve the problem once and for all," Putin said.

    Commenting on future meetings with European partners to discuss the situation in Ukraine, the Russian president said that he had agreed with his French and German counterparts that it would be "viable" to meet only if the leaders' aids manage to make progress in preparing some preliminary agreements.

    On canceled Paris visit: 'French side refused to take part in joint events'
    Moscow is "always ready to talk with anyone," but attending meetings on issues that have been originally out of the agenda is "senseless," Putin said, answering a journalist's question as of why he canceled his Paris visit recently.

    "The main reason for my planned visit to France was the opening of our religious and cultural center, and visiting an exhibition of Russian artists. So the main aim of the visit was joint participation [with the French president] in these events. But because of the known Syrian issues the French side decided not to join the events," Putin said, adding that "if the main reason for the visit dropped out," there was no reason to go.

    NatWest just gave RT two months notice to find another bank in the UK with no explanation of it's plan to terminate its account. It's obviously too early to say for sure if it's because of RT's contradictory coverage of Syria, but as the pressure gets ramped up I think that's probably the reason, as do the pundits in the following video:

    Syria war: Russia announces Aleppo humanitarian pause
    2 hours ago

    Russia has announced a "humanitarian pause" in its bombing of the Syrian
    city of Aleppo.Moscow said it would halt operations in Aleppo on Thursday
    for an eight-hour span between 08:00 (05:00 GMT) and 16:00.

    The Russian defence ministry said the pause was agreed so that civilians
    and rebels could leave the city.But UN agencies say at least 12 hours will
    be needed for that to happen. "We would welcome any pause in the fighting,
    but there is a need for a longer pause in order to get the aid in," said UN
    spokesman Stephane Dujarric.

    These wars and regional destruction in the Middle East have been going on since at least the early 1990's at least, for the current US, and going back at least a century more, for the Anglo-American empire.

    I found the following map of Babylon, from thousands of years ago to be suggestively relevant.
    The map appeared in the following screen shot from Johan Oldenkamp's latest video, Wholly Scripture TV : 2. Babylon:
    The yellow area on the above map has been the focus of our (the US) most persistent and unjust fighting, since at least the first Iraq war in the early 1990's. The yellow area covers major portions of Iraq and Syria. We seemed determined to conduct a scorched earth campaign there.

    I wonder why there is such a focus on this area. My present speculation is that the Elite Bastards that I rail against are descendents of the Babylonian priesthood, who in recent centuries have infiltrated and operated through various major institutions and cultures. Somehow, for some reason, the bastards feel compelled to control or destroy the area of their ancient homeland.
