Russia Says to Send More Warplanes to Syria

Russia is sending more warplanes to Syria to ramp up its air campaign, a Russian newspaper reported on Friday.

US admits not targeting Nusra, blames Moscow for own failure to separate ‘moderates’ from terrorists

The US is not targeting al-Nusra terrorists in Syria because they have become too “intermingled” with moderates and civilians, the US State Department claimed, accusing Moscow of causing the mess which prevents Washington from separating the groups.

The War Against Syria: Both Sides Go to 'Plan B'

In view of the total failure of the US policy to regime-change Syria and overthrow Assad, the time has now come for the United States to make a fundamental choice: to negotiate or double down. Apparently, Kerry and others initially tried to negotiate, but the Pentagon decided otherwise, treacherously broke the terms of the agreement and (illegally) bombed the Syrian forces. At which point, Kerry, Power and the rest of them felt like they had no choice but to “join” the Pentagon and double down. Now the US “warns” Russia that if the Aleppo offensive continues, the US will not resume negotiations. This is a rather bizarre threat considering that the US is clearly unable to stick to any agreement and that the Russians have already concluded that the US is “not-agreement-capable”. The Russia reaction was predictable: Lavrov’s admitted that he could not even take his American colleagues seriously.

Okay, so both sides are fed-up with each other. What comes next?

Leaked audio appears to show US resolve on Syria flat-lining

US Secretary of State John Kerry repeatedly complained in a meeting last week with a small number of Syrian civilians and others that his diplomacy lacked a serious threat of military force, the New York Times revealed yesterday.

In a leaked audio recording of the 40-minute discussion that took place on 22 September, Kerry said that he and “three…four people” in President Barack Obama’s administration had “lost an argument” to back up diplomatic efforts to end the bloodshed in Syria with the threat of using military force.

‘US had never had ‘Plan A’ for Syria, West a root cause of crisis’ – Syrian UN envoy to RT

In the wake of the worsening security situation in Syria, Washington has blamed Damascus and Russia for jeopardizing efforts to peacefully resolve the ongoing civil war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of course, what the US government means by 'peacefully resolve' is to let the US remove Assad and install a puppet government.

Ron Paul: Syria Has Been in Chaos Ever Since Obama said ‘Assad Must Go’

It’s worth noting here that Ron Paul was correct back in Aug. 2013, when the US and Britain were insisting the Syrian government used chemical weapons against its own people in the Damascus suburb of East Ghouta. At the time Paul called it a “False Flag” designed to suck US into arming Jihadist rebels in Syria. Where Washington was demanding military strikes against Syria, cooler and more intelligence heads determined that the event was in fact staged, most likely by western and Gulf-backed ‘rebels.’

Regarding the collapse of the ceasefire around Aleppo, the former US Congressman and Presidential candidate said that Washington “should not be there [Syria]” at all, despite this being an “unpopular” opinion in political circles, because the intervention contributes to jihadists expanding even further.

US protecting Syria jihadist group - Russia's Lavrov

"They [the US] pledged solemnly to take as a priority an obligation to separate the opposition from Nusra," he said.

"They still, in spite of many repeated promises and commitments... are not able or not willing to do this and we have more and more reasons to believe that from the very beginning the plan was to spare Nusra and to keep it just in case for Plan B or stage two when it would be time to change the regime."

'US has always been main sponsor of Islamic State' - former CIA contractor to RT

The US claim that Russian troops will go home in body bags if Moscow doesn't end its Aleppo offensive is absurd, former CIA contractor Steven Kelley told RT. He said Russia is the only answer to defeating ISIS. Other experts also weigh in on the subject.

When asked about State Department spokesperson John Kirby's warning that Russia “will continue to send troops home in body bags” if it doesn't put an end to the offensive, Kelley said Washington is pretending to be fighting Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) when it isn't doing so at all.

US Threatens to Arm Al Qaeda, ISIS with Anti-Air Missiles, To Strike Russian Warplanes?

However, in reality, ambitions to down Russian and Syrian aircraft over Syria are not Saudi in origin, but rather come from the highest levels of policy and politics within Washington. Washington-based corporate-financier policy think tank, the Brookings Institution, in a paper titled, “What to do when containing the Syrian crisis has failed,” would admit (emphasis added):

We must also be clever about employing various options for no-fly zones: We cannot shoot down an airplane without knowing if it’s Russian or Syrian, but we can identify those aircraft after the fact and destroy Syrian planes on the ground if they were found to have barrel-bombed a neighborhood, for example. These kinds of operations are complicated, no doubt, and especially with Russian aircraft in the area—but I think we have made a mistake in tying ourselves in knots over the issue, since there are options we can pursue.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you have not already seen it, you should catch the film "Charlie Wilson's War", about how the US covertly armed the Mujaheddin by "laundering" the weapons through other countries.

We are seeing a replay in Syria.

Why Everything You Hear About Aleppo Is Wrong

The mainstream media portrays the fight for Aleppo as one between Syrian President Assad and the people, painting Assad as someone killing his citizens for the fun of it. In other words, as they did with Iraq and Libya, etc. the mainstream media again happily takes up the role of mouthpiece of the US government. The reality is quite different, in fact. Today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report speaks with independent journalist Vanessa Beeley, who has recently returned from an investigative trip to Syria including in Aleppo. What’s really going on there?

'Aleppo must not fall': US allies to flood city with anti-aircraft missiles

The US has resolved to prevent the fall of Aleppo and is preparing to allow its Gulf allies to flood the city with shoulder-fired, anti-aircraft missiles, according to a source with close contacts to rebel forces.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Fall of Aleppo" is a very revealing phrase in that what the US is trying to prevent is Aleppo being run by Syria's legitimate government. Given that ISIS and Al Qaeda do not have aircraft, these manpads are intended for use against the warplanes of Syria's government, and against Russia's aircraft, who were invited to enter Syria and assist the legitimate government.

In contrast, the United States has no legitimate right to be in Syria, let alone waging war against Syrian forces or shooting down Russian aircraft to protect ISIS and Al Qaeda terrorists!

US To Suspend Syria Diplomacy With Russia, Prepares "Military Options"

In the most dramatic diplomatic escalation involving the Syrian conflict in the past years, yesterday John Kerry issued an ultimatum to Russia, in which he warned his colleague Lavrov to stop bombing Aleppo or else the US would suspend all cooperation and diplomacy with Russia.

24 hours later, this appears to be precisely what is about to take place, leading to an even greater geopolitical shock in Syria. According to Retuers, the United States is expected to tell Russia on Thursday it is suspending their diplomatic engagement on Syria following the Russian-backed Syrian government's intense attacks on Aleppo, U.S. officials said on condition of anonymity.

President Assad Of Syria Is Not An Evil Dictator Killing His People: The US Lied about It

What do evil dictators look like? What do they talk like? Just how wicked is an evil dictator’s wife ? Should she be toppled along with her husband? Who am I talking about? President Assad of Syria and his wife, Asmas Al Assad.

These are the same ones boy Rubio, McCain, Lyndsay Graham, Ryan, the Bush’s, Obama, Kerry and Hillary all want to topple down to bring peace to Syria. That is THE LIE they are and have been shouting. What they really want to do is take over Syria in order to hurry along their New World Order agenda. The media whores push the establishment narrative that president Assad of Syria is evil and a corrupt dictator. They fear that when you realize who these people really are, you will be sorry you ever believed any lies told about them, let alone what they have conspired to do against them and all the citizens of Syria.

Hysteria at UN Betrays Western Terror Sponsors

Hysteria and histrionics at the United Nations Security Council from the three permanent members, the United States, Britain and France, was tantamount to a signed confession. Ironically, one can imagine how the wording of such a «confession» would go: We the intensely vexed members are hereby displaying our boorish displeasure that the terror proxies we covertly sponsor in Syria for regime change are being thrashed.

Such was the tawdry display of undiplomatic conduct by the US, Britain and France, with officials from these countries inveighing against Russia with unsubstantiated, sensationalist accusations of committing war crimes. The intemperance was then followed by tantrums and walk-outs from the Security Council meeting – a meeting that these three members had originally convened.

SYRIAN WAR REPORT – SEPTEMBER 29, 2016: US DEPLOYS TROOPS NEAR ALEPPO CITY

US troops have entered the Syrian towns of Marea and Azaz located north of Aleppo city, Lebanese Al Mayadeen channel reported. The US servicemen are embedded with ‘moderate rebels’ from the FSA and are going to prepare the US-backed advance on ISIS in the area.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Those US soldiers are being mixed in with the US-sponsored terrorists to deter attacks by Syrian and Russian forces. Russia has repeatedly complained that the US is NOT separating the "moderate" opposition from ISIS and Al Qaeda. So, in effect, the US Government is using our own troops as human shields to protect terrorists! Use of human shields is a war crime.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova is holding a weekly press conference in Moscow.

Situation in the country remains tense. Fightings between the Syrain armed forces and terrorists continue in the northern region of the country, especially in Aleppo.

"We highlight once again the need to divide terrorists from the opposition," Maria Zakharova said during the press briefing.

Claims that Russian Air and Space forces conduct airstrikes on the hospitals in Syria are false. Most of the targets that were attacked by the Russian forces are the field hospitals for terrorists.

‘Russia will continue to send troops home in body bags’: US warns Moscow if Syria violence goes on

Unless Russia “stops the violence” in Syria, extremists would “exploit the vacuum” to attack Russian interests and even cities, the US State Department has said.

“Extremist groups will continue to exploit the vacuums that are there in Syria to expand their operations, which could include attacks against Russian interests, perhaps even Russian cities. Russia will continue to send troops home in body bags, and will continue to lose resources, perhaps even aircraft,” John Kirby, the State Department's spokesperson, told reporters at Wednesday's press briefing.

If the war continues “more Russian lives will be lost, more Russian aircraft will be shot down,” Kirby said.

“Yes, the US supports the opposition [in Syria], but not directly. They support the countries that support us. But we are not yet satisfied with this support,” Jabhat al-Nusra unit commander Abu Al Ezz said in an interview with Koelner Stadt-Anzeiger newspaper from the city of Aleppo.

US-led international coalition strikes destroy two bridges in Deir Ezzor

SANA reporter in Deir Ezzor said Wednesday that the strikes resulted in the destruction of al-Asharah Bridge that links the river’s two banks in the eastern countryside of the province only few hours after destroying al-Mayadin Bridge.

The destruction of the two bridges aims at disconnecting the areas located on both banks of the river, the reporter noted.

The coalition, which claims to be fighting ISIS terrorist organization, has repeatedly targeted the Syrian infrastructure with the aim to deliberately inflict damage on sites and facilities in the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Given the sparcity of bridges in the area, the bombings are clearly intended to limit the Syrian Army's push into ISIS' last stronghold. Instead of a wide front across multiple bridges, the Syrian forces will have to concentrate their traffic across one or two, making them easy targets. Think Battle of Sterling (the real one, not the movie version) or Horatius at the Bridge and you get the idea.

New Cold War Spins Out of Control

In the aftermath of the U.S. attack on the Syrian army positions overlooking and commanding the Dier A-Zor airfield – the airfield, whose daily “Berlin air-bridge” style flights, are the sole lifeline to a city long besieged by ISIS – the Russian U.N. Ambassador asked a pertinent rhetorical question at the United Nations Security Council: Who is running U.S. policy: Is it the Pentagon or the White House?

What is so surprising here is the non-surprise evinced by the editorial writers of the New York Times. The Board blandly states that the Defense Secretary and the Pentagon might not comply. Not a hint of surprise is evident at the constitutional implications of this open defiance of Presidential authority.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't know about you, but the fact that Sec Def Carter is running the show now at the Pentagon scares the living stuffing out of me.

He is one of the most war-centric, verbally belligerent, non-prone to dialogue that could lead to negotiations, Sec Def that we have had in quite some time, probably since Rumsfeld.

He appears very much to be drunk on the smell on his own cork, when it comes to confronting Russia militarily,and that is a very dangerous state of affairs in which the US government finds itself.

Gulf may arm rebels now Syria truce is dead: U.S. officials

The collapse of the latest Syria ceasefire has heightened the possibility that Gulf states might arm Syrian rebels with shoulder-fired missiles to defend themselves against Syrian and Russian warplanes, U.S. officials said on Monday.

Still, the U.S. administration continues to maintain that negotiations are the only way to end the carnage after Russian-backed Syrian forces intensified their bombing of Aleppo, the last major urban area in rebel hands.

The latest U.S. attempt to end Syria's 5-1/2 year civil war was shattered on Sept. 19 when a humanitarian aid convoy was bombed in an attack Washington blamed on Russian aircraft. Moscow denied involvement.

On Monday, medical supplies were running out in rebel-held eastern Aleppo, with victims pouring into barely functioning hospitals as Russia and its Syrian ally President Bashar al-Assad ignored Western pleas to stop the bombing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: the US government never wanted a true cease-fire in the first place; they just wanted a lull in the fighting long enough to rearm those alleged "moderate" jihadists, of whom there are none.

Well now, having broken the cease-fire with a deliberate attack against Syrian troops, lasting an hour, the US government is feeling confident that it can do this with impunity.

But were I a member of the US government or military, I wouldn't bet against the Russians, coordinating with the Syrian military, to make mincemeat out of the last stronghold of the jihadists in Aleppo.

Russia to create new coalition on Syria

Urgent meeting of the UN Security Council which was initiated by Great Britain, France and the US turned into attempted public flogging of Russia.

Initiators of the meeting along with Germany, Italy, and an EU representative that joined them the day before, called military action of the Syrian army in Aleppo to be inadmissible. They called the UN SC to take a corresponding stance on the matter.

The 'six' also pointed out in an ultimatum-like way that given inability and unwillingness of Russia to follow its obligations, their 'patience is not boundless'.

The US representative in the UN Samantha Power claimed at once that Moscow and Damascus lead 'a full-scale offensive' on the East of Aleppo, calling the Russian acts to be 'barbaric'. According to her, the Russian side tends to continue war in Syria.

The Russian Defence Minister Lavrov claimed that the US tried to make Russia responsible for everything going on in Syria.

US not arming Nusra, but our allies might – State Dept

Al-Nusra Front is a terrorist group and the US will never provide it with any aid, said the State Department, reacting to revelations in a German newspaper – while admitting that unnamed US allies might be backing the jihadist militants in Syria.

On Monday, the German newspaper Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger published an interview with an Al-Nusra commander in Syria, identified only as “Abu Al-Ezz.” In the interview, conducted 10 days ago outside of Aleppo, Al-Ezz said that US allies were providing Al-Nusra with tanks and artillery.

What you did in Iraq & Libya is the real barbarism – Russian FM spox rebukes US envoy to UN

The US envoy to the UN, who recently called Russia's actions in Syria “barbarism,” is hypocritical, because nothing in modern history is more barbaric than what the US has done in Iraq and Libya, the Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson said in a fiery rebuke.

The American envoy to the UN, Samantha Power, blasted Russia on Sunday at a Security Council meeting, accusing Moscow of civilian deaths in Aleppo in the wake of the collapse of the ceasefire negotiated by the US and Russia.

Russia to agree on no further unilateral steps to cease hostilities in Syria — envoy

Russia will agree on no further unilateral steps to cease hostilities in Syria after the United States’ tactical tricks that gave terrorist groups time to regroup and reinforce, Russia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin said on Sunday at an extraordinary meeting of the Security Council.

"Requests for ceasefire — now for 48 hours, then for 72 hours — have become a routine practice," he said. "We have always been making concessions, at least tried, and reached agreements with the Syrian government. In the long run, it all ended in militants’ regrouping, receiving reinforcement and staging new offensives."

Obama’s Imperial Mideast Policy Has Unraveled

Not only had the U.S. approved the same Kurdish offensive, but it had provided arms, money, and air support plus military advice in the form of some 250 US Special Operations forces embedded among members of the Kurdish militia known as the YPG.Although the Turks claimed to be targeting ISIS (also known as Islamic State, IS, ISIL, and Daesh), it was plain from the outset that the real aim was to counter an offensive that had carried Kurdish forces some 20 miles west of the Euphrates River and put them in a position to control nearly the entire Syrian-Turkish border.

Indeed, the Syrian Democratic Forces, a multi-ethnic militia anchored by the YPG, was a real success story, just about the only one Washington has had in the course of its disastrous five-year Syrian intervention.

After Being Named Terrorists, Syrian “Al Qaeda” Group Says America Still Helps, But Not Enough

By Baran Hines

A battlefield leader for the “Syrian Al Qaeda” terrorist group Jahbat al-Nusra claimed the United States is still helping the group fight against Syrian government forces, in an interview with major German newspaper Kölner Stadtanzeiger. Abu al-Ezz, a jihadist commander fighting in the strategic city of Aleppo, said that “the Americans stand on our side” because the US and its allies still support the group with weapons, money, and logistics. The candid statements were quoted by reporter Jürgen Todenhöfer who traveled to Syria for the seventh time during the proxy war which has raged since 2011...

How Libyan ‘Regime Change’ Lies Echo In Syria

Earlier this month, a select committee of British parliamentarians released a report which condemned the U.K. government under David Cameron for its role in the 2011 NATO intervention in Libya. The report makes plain that the principal basis on which the intervention was predicated – that then-Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi was on the verge of committing a wholesale slaughter of the rebel stronghold Benghazi – was a lie propagated by Western and Gulf State media outlets.

US-Russian Deal: 'DoD Openly Saying It May or May Not Obey Obama'

However, the US scholar noted, there are forces in Washington which seek to disrupt the US-Russian détente.

Given the fact that US warplanes knew the Deir ez-Zor region very well and that the US Department of Defense (DOD) had openly expressed its skepticism regarding the US-Russian plan on Syria, it is "a little hard to believe" that the attack on the Syrian Arab Army was an "accident," Professor Cohen suggested. He quoted the New York Times editorial, which read that "at the Pentagon, officials would not even agree that if a cessation of violence in Syria held for seven days — the initial part of the deal — the Defense Department would put in place its part of the agreement on the eighth day."

Propaganda spin cycle: 'Syrian Observatory for Human Rights' is funded by US and UK governments

Officially, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) is a UK-based organization providing data to the Western press about troop movements, government policy and public sentiment in Syria. The Western press then reprints the information they are given - no questions asked:

His funding comes from the European Union and "an unnamed European state," most likely the UK as he has direct access to former Foreign Minister William Hague, who he has been documented meeting in person on multiple occasions at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London and shares Rahman's enthusiasm for removing Assad from power. The NYT in fact reveals that it was the British government that first relocated Abdul Rahman to Coventry, England after he fled Syria over a decade ago because of his anti-government activities:

How the Pentagon Sank the US-Russia Deal in Syria – and the Ceasefire

At an extraordinary video conference with Kerry immediately after the negotiation of the ceasefire agreement was complete, Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter strongly objected to the Joint Center– especially the provision for sharing intelligence with the Russians for a campaign against IS and al-Qaeda.

Obama had overridden Carter’s objections at the time, but a New York Times story filed the night of 13 September reported that Pentagon officials were still refusing to agree that the US should proceed with the creation of the Joint Implementation Center if the ceasefire held for seven days.

The Times quoted Lt. Gen. Jeffrey L Harrigian, commander of the United States Air Forces Central Command (USAFCENT), as telling reporters, “I’m not saying yes or no.”

“It would be premature to say that we’re going to jump right into it,” he added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but I thought that the civilian leadership of the American military was always the way it is supposed to be, and not the other way 'round: why Sec Def Carter or whoever actually ordered the attack has not been royally sacked, is a mystery to me.

That is, unless Obama wanted the strike, but to be able to claim "plausible deniability" in his having ordered it, and blame it on the Pentagon.

I think this is the more likely scenario, all things considered.

“We first thought the aircraft are support to us after the first 2 shots, but we quickly found out that they are targeting our forces aggressively, while we were fighting IS terrorists. The aircraft used cluster bombs against us.”

“A day before the airstrikes, the drones were flying and scanning all the area”
“The US airstikes destroyed all our equipment and defense points.

“IS fighters attacked us immediately after and during the US strikes. Some of them were laughing. US drones and helicopters opened fire from machine guns on our retreated forces.

“It is for sure wasn’t not a mistake, they targeted us intentionally, to help IS.”

SYRIAN WAR REPORT – SEPTEMBER 26, 2016: RUSSIA DEPLOYS MORE WARPLANES IN SYRIA

Fresh video evidence from the province of Latakia indicates that Russia has likely increased its air grouping operating in Siria. The video entitled “Syria: Army relaunches offensive against militias in Latakia” and posted by RUPTLY on September 24, 2016 shows the Su-25SM attack aircraft supporting an advance of the Syrian army against terrorists.

There have been no Russian Su-25SM aircraft in Syria since the partial withdrawal of the Russian air grouping from the country. Now, Su-25SM jets are operating in the Syrian airspace. The Syrian Arab Air Force does not have such warplanes.

This means that Moscow has deployed SU-25SM strike-fighters in order to increase the air power involved in operations against terrorists. There is no information about numbers of Russian SU-25SM attack aircraft that are now operating from Russia’s Khmeimim Air Base.

Why Assad's army has not defected

Four years ago, Turkey’s then prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdo?an said that within in a few weeks he would be praying in Damascus’s Umayyad Mosque, as Assad was about to fall. Similarly, Israel’s most decorated soldier, former Defense Minister Ehud Barak, predicted that Assad and his military would be toppled within weeks. That was at the beginning of 2012, when there were no Iranian soldiers on the ground or Russian planes in the skies.

As another round of Geneva peace talks collapses and the world wonders what’s next for Syria, it is time to begin with the warnings of Henry Kissinger and Zbignew Brzezinski. Kissinger and Brzezinski, the most seasoned and influential U.S. policymakers on the Middle East since World War II, have gone against popular opinion and stated that President Bashar al-Assad has more support than all the opposition groups combined.

ISIS and Al Qaeda terrorist attacks on Westerners is evil.

And as a white American from a Judeo-Christian background, I am repulsed by the fact that ISIS is targeting Christians in Syria and Iraq with brutal murder … including crucifixion. [And these crimes are invariably not reported by the Western media.]

But most victims of ISIS, Al Qaeda and other Islamic terrorism are themselves Muslim.

‘Beholden to AIPAC’ — progressive senators

Senators Warren, Murphy, Brown sign letter seeking to limit Obama’s actions...

The news that many progressive US senators as well as vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine signed on to an Israel lobby letter designed to limit President Obama’s actions against the Israeli occupation, now nearly 50 years old, has been widely reported, but the plain facts need to be stated.

Yesterday the Israel lobby group AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, flexed its muscle against President Obama and on the side of Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu by posting a letter signed by 88 senators warning President Obama not to back any international measures that would pressure Israel to withdraw from occupied territories.
