President of Syria, H.E. Bashar Hafez al-Assad: “This Homeland is ours and defending it is our duty” ~ “The West still deals with terrorism in a hypocritical way”

Bashar al-Assad said Sunday that the West still deals with terrorism in a hypocritical way.Talking before heads and members of public organizations; vocational syndicates; and chambers of industry, trade, agriculture and tourism, President Assad added.. they call it terrorism when it hits them, and revolution, freedom, democracy and human rights when it hits us.The President  said that in spite of the complexities of the situation in Syria, the reality has appeared clearly and masks have dropped from many faces and fake terminologies have fallen down and lies have been divulged.Terrorism is an ill ideology, a distorted doctrine and an anomalous exercise that emerged and grew up in environments of ignorance and backwardness, and it is obvious for all that colonization is the side that founded these factors and boosted them and is still boosting them, President al-Assad added

How the US Military Plans to Neutralize Russia

With the U.S. Air Force Secretary, Deborah James having described Russia as “the biggest threat” to the American interests on Wednesday, July 8, the latest version of the “National Military Strategy of the United States” seems to echo James. 

The document has alredy generated a wave of expert comments. Within Russia, the media focus has been on two of its provisions, especially the one that refers to Russia as a “revisionist power.”

The new U.S. military strategy first and foremost intends to counter “revisionist powers” that violate the norms of the world order. Secondarily, it plans to counter extremist organizations that, as the experience of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Greater Syria(ISIS) shows, have the capacity to create armed units. Both postulates are accompanied by arguments about the need to improve the flexibility, mobility and available technology of the U.S. Armed Forces.

All these provisions have been repeated countless times in U.S. military planning documents. Of more interest is that the new National Military Strategy suggests that the strategic thinking of the U.S. elite (regardless of individual party affiliation) is based on a combination of two trends.

The U.S. leadership is in favor of preserving the rules of international cooperation established since 1991. At the same time, the White House is beginning to sense that the existing mechanisms for its protection are not sufficient.

The “new” US military strategy can be traced back to 1991

Back in the late 1980s, U.S. experts bandied about four ideas that came to form the basis of American foreign policy. All these provisions were set forth in the 1991 National Security Strategy of the United States:

§                     – The end of the Cold War has not led to the achievement of a key U.S. objective: Soviet military potential has not been dismantled on the model of Germany and Japan after World War II;

§                     – In the foreseeable future, Russia will remain the only country in the world with the technical capacity to destroy the strategic potential of the United States;

§                     – Washington needs to justify the presence of its Armed Forces on the territory of its allies, such as the European countries of NATO, Japan and South Korea;

§                     – The United States must lead the fight against “non-traditional threats,” including transnational terrorism.

These points were ultimately enshrined in the 1995 National Military Strategy of the United States, which stipulated that the U.S. Department of Defense would counter states attempting to revise the post-1991 world order.

To achieve these goals, the United States needed to maintain military superiority, provide security guarantees to allies, and demonstrate willingness to use force in proportion to the nature of the threat.

The latter point meant that Washington reserved the right to use force even against great powers like Russia and China. But the talk was less about direct confrontation, and more about Washington’s carefully prepared intervention in a potential conflict between Russia or China and their neighbors.

Since then, U.S. military policy has continued to develop within the framework of this paradigm.

Russia has now been prioritized as a top threat

The novelty of the 2015 National Military Strategy is in the setting of priorities.

Foremost among the potential threats is Russia. The document states that Moscow “has repeatedly shown disregard for the sovereignty of its neighbors and willingness to use force to achieve its goals.”

Next is Iran, which is accused of developing nuclear weapons and destabilizing the Middle East. In third place is North Korea, similarly castigated for producing nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles, and threatening America’s regional allies, Japan and South Korea.

Fourth place is occupied by China, described as a threat to regional security, especially in the South China Sea. Only then is the fight against terrorist organizations mentioned.

Moreover, Russia and China are cited in the same context as Iran and North Korea. Almost all U.S. administrations have segregated these countries, stressing that Iran and North Korea are “rogue states.” Now the Obama administration has put all four countries in one context. Does this mean that the current U.S. administration has moved Russia and China into the category of “rogue states”?

Another alarming signal is that the international community is said to be coordinating efforts in the fight against all four threats. The fact that Iran and North Korea are excluded from the “international community” in the U.S. meaning is taken as a real fact.

But if Russia and China are also excluded, the situation takes on a new dimension. Washington either recognizes that the world is essentially split, or is counting on a marked weakening of Russian and Chinese resources in the foreseeable future.

The third problem is Russia’s return as a priority adversary. There is nothing fundamentally new in this. Even the U.S. Nuclear Posture Review of 1994 noted that Moscow remains a priority adversary as long as it has nuclear parity with Washington.

However, in its public rhetoric the White House has tried not to focus attention on this. (At the semi-official level it is postulated that China is the new Soviet Union). Now the official rhetoric seems to be coming into line with material and technical capabilities.

China remains at the bottom of the list of potential threats. At first glance this seems strange, since back in 2009 Obama announced his “pivot to Asia.” Perhaps the current Democratic administration still harbors hopes of negotiating with Beijing. Or perhaps the Americans are just performing another foreign policy U-turn.

The Ukraine crisis put the priority spotlight back on the Baltic-Black Sea region. Meanwhile, the Asia-Pacific region will come to the fore once more when the United States prepares the necessary back areas and creates the desired situation in the South China or East China Sea (the exact region is not so important).

U.S. prepares for the resurgence of wars between great powers

The new National Military Strategy makes regular mention of the growing danger of war with “state actors” — more precisely, a war with great powers. From the previous section, there can be no doubt as regards the perceived opponents. Of greater interest is that the “Strategy” constantly highlights that the United States has weak mechanisms to counter other powers in regional wars.

978-0-8173-8325-1-frontcoverBehind this there lurks a serious strategic problem. Over the past century U.S. strategy has been inspired by the ideas of Italian General Giulio Douhet about the unconditional superiority of air power. In war, command of the air forces the enemy to capitulate. This postulate served as the basis for the logic of nuclear deterrence, with its threats to wipe out enemy cities and infrastructure.

But no one explained what would happen if, instead of capitulating, the enemy began to take retaliatory measures. The U.S. military establishment worried that it would become increasingly difficult to find soldiers for ground operations. Unlike during the Cold War, its allies are in no hurry to provide infantry under U.S. “air cover.”

For the authors of the National Military Strategy, the solution lies in building military infrastructure at the regional level. Not by accident is the first objective in a hypothetical conflict to thwart the primary goals of the aggressor. This is possible only with real U.S. forces on the ground in problem areas (from Washington’s viewpoint). In a sense, the Americans plan to tweak their technical means with a view to implementation.

But at the same time, the deployment of U.S. infrastructure on the borders of Russia and China is alarming Moscow and Beijing. Back in the 1970s, a large-scale ground war between the Soviet Union and the United States was fraught with technical difficulties.

With the appearance of U.S. military infrastructure near Russia and China (including various kinds of regional missile defense systems), it is becoming technically more feasible. In the medium term, will the prospect of such a conflict lead U.S. politicians into temptation?

Nastya Kopteva’s Letter to President Vladimir Putin

Nastya Kopteva’s Letter to President Vladimir Putin.Sadly, because of the US control over the nazi regime, Russia cannot come to the aid of the Donbass, it would play directly into US and EU hands. They only need a contrived excuse to declare war on Russia. The destruction of the Donbass will continue and the atrocities will worsen in an attempt to bring about a reaction from Russia. Likely Putin receives many letters like hers because she and the others do not realize how his hands are tied behind his back.  Cameron, Merkel, Hollande, in fact the Danish and especially the Polish are willing to allow the nazi battalions to pulverise Russian civilians in an attempt to start the war.They are the pawns in this “game” of war. Kiev will continue it’s ethnic cleansing of Russian citizens rights, identities, homes, lands and lives until they are utterly destroyed. Poroshenko promised the Donbass it’s children would not go to school, they would be hiding in their basements, they would go hungry and would not have hospitals. So far he has made good on his promise and the US/EU/NATO will not allow him to halt the slaughter, because they know at some point Putin will give up asking the EU community and the UN to intervene and he will send troops and possibly even heavy artillery and tanks in to stop the escalating murder of citizens. He hasn’t done so yet, and this may seem an awful thing to say, but he shouldn’t. The lives of the people in Russia are those he is responsible for and they must come first, to try and rescue the Donbass peoples would cause untold destruction of his own peoples in Russia. The eastern Ukrainians were doomed from the moment the US led coup began and the nazi regimes started stripping away at the rights of the Russian citizens in the Crimea and the eastern region. It was by design with a twofold purpose in mind: to make the Ukraine financially dependant on western money to the point that they would renege on their debt to Russia and to foment war against Russia by destroying the lives of the peoples of the Donbass. It must be infuriating to the US and their EU partners in crime to have failed so far. Russia must refrain from coming to the aid of the donbass and the Russian speaking peoples must accept annihilation or perpetual conflict.The Ukraine nazi regime, where so many war criminals fled to after being given a free pass for testifying in the Nuremberg Trials, are not killing Jews. Their new Lebensraum victims are Russian speaking ethnics and as we witnessed on June 9th, to the western world 10 million Russian lives lost are to be dismissed and their memories spat on by those who thrive today because of that sacrifice. We live in an evil world where power plays use the lives of civilians to reach the intended goals. The EU elites who see Russia as the fly in the ointment will not intervene, that would require a conscience, something they likely have not. The Palestinians have waited 70 years for help, they are still waiting, what chance the Donbass peoples in their expectant hope for justice?

Is Ukraine a Modern Day Colony?

Israel was installed in Palestinian lands to ensure they had a forward base with which to attack the Arab countries, that much has been acknowledged for over 70 years. The same has been applied to the Ukraine, a forward base with which to limit Russia’s economic stability and afford the US the means to launch an attack (a pre-emptive strike) against Russia. Everyone who has any knowledge of the truths in Ukraine – and there are many including Kiev and Lviv sources can testify to the fact that the US continues to pressure Ukraine to abandon the Russian trade agreements and has in fact suggested they renege on their debts to Russia. So yes it most definitely qualifies as a colony intended to serve US interests and hang the consequences of the human cost.
 

Western nations like to pretend that colonialism was all but wiped out in the years following the Second World War. However, those who know better than to trust the accounts of the western ‘victors’ of WWII understand that imperialism is alive and well. Constant military and political interventions in Latin America, the Middle East and Africa serve to uphold American hegemony in the world. While the US maintains that these incursions into the sovereignty of other nations are in the interests of promoting ‘universal values’, such as so-called democracy and freedom, it is clear in the aftermath of such attacks that the opposite is true. Rather than improving the countries that the US (among other nations) invades, the outcome is often mass bloodshed and severe degradation of the quality of life for the lower classes.Western nations like to pretend that colonialism was all but wiped out in the years following the Second World War.

An anonymous Syrian from inside Aleppo: “Please stop blaming the Syrian Army and Government”

 

via An anonymous Syrian from inside Aleppo: “Please stop blaming the Syrian Army and Government”. apologize that I’m very upset, mostly not from the attackers and whoever is supporting them in Turkey over here (and Israel and Jordan in the south); but mainly from the liars in that conference in Britain or at the UN , who keep lying and lying, piles and tons of lies, about “freedom” and “barrel bombs” and live in their perfumed and ironed suits and ties, happy with their Ph.D. degrees in stupidity and fooling the world, having no problem in obtaining clean water, electricity, warm food, and all the other services that we here cannot rely on. Those people travel in 1st class airlines, and live in five-star hotels. They are always ready to appear on television to weep on the plight of the “Syrian people” and blame the “regime” while turning a blind eye upon all the terrorists they themselves are funding and supporting. I wish these people, whether they were Arabs or Westerns, Muslims or Christians, Syrians or others… I wish them Hell! And to taste and suffer the same pain they have caused to innocent people. From a Syrian citizen source

 We listen to the UK government lies and believe them either because we are stupid or just don’t care. I watch idiots on BBCQT lie and misrepresent the truth and wonder: Do they actually give a shit about these people? I have pages and pages of information about what is really happening but you won’t read it in our corrupt and whored out media, or from our politicians who have too much invested in their lies and too much to gain from their deceptions to ever speak the truth. Then some twat in the audience wants Britain to bomb the Syrian people! Just how many more thousands of unarmed men, women and children does such a twat like that want dead? He doesn’t think the US and Israel are killing enough innocents? Or that the bombs and chemical weapons Turkey supplies the IS and Free Syrian Army(most of whom have joined IS and al Nusra) are wreaking enough death and destruction on a suffering people? He doesn’t know(because our government failed to mention) that Russia persuaded Assad to get rid of his stockpiles of chemical weapons) which he did? He doesn’t know that the terrorists are the ones using chemical weapons and other weapons supplied to them via the US and Turkey? He doesn’t know that the Syrian Human Rights have been called out several times on supplying false reports against Assad? – Unbelievable and disgusting.

The Updated Military Strategy of the US: Ambiguity and Dominance

The Updated Military Strategy of the US: Ambiguity and Dominance.

The 2015 National Military Strategy of the USA sees it’s objectives as being guided by NSIs(National Security Interests) seeming to be a mix of self delusion and the continuance of destructive interference and aggression by stealth or open hostility using force. The interests, as outlined in the strategy, may seem reasonable but for the skewed vision of US “exceptionalism” they themselves are the only ones allowed to pursue those strategies. For instance, the US may protect it’s citizens wherever they are – but another country such as Russia, may not, deeming another country’s actions as aggressive. Which is exactly what it has done in the case of Crimea. The US also seems set to preserve and extend (pursue and impose by whatever means) it’s own twisted misconception of what constitutes “universal values” which they are most certainly not. Given the way they govern their own country and condone the activities of the nazi regime of Israel, the Human Rights Violations of the Saudis and the breaking of the Minsk Agreement 1 by Kiev and the Ukraine ethnic cleansing programme, they are, to put it mildly, somewhat detached from reality. Such double standards of corrupt thinking are not “universal values”. The fact that the strategy lists their own tactics of state sponsored terrorist interventionism in destabilizing nation states, the pursuit of ever more advanced and destructive military technologies, cyber warfare, and bringing misery to countless people, using misinformation and outright lies by means of propaganda and failure to observe International Rules of warfare as in the case of the Geneva Conventions, the UN charter – many of the GA conventions they have refused to ratify, where they themselves might be held accountable, the Helsinki Accords which they broke, the Paris Charter which they have dismissed, the NATO agreement they have reneged on and last but not least, the agreement they also signed: the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, shows a certain lack of perception of their own guilt. Mea Culpa does not exist in their mindset. Think of the old saying “Oh for the gift that God did gee us, to see ourselves as others see us” (Robbie Burns – Scottish poet) and you have an inkling into the warped mentality of the US mentality.This whole misconception of their own righteousness has so infected their psyche that they have not realized who and what they truly are. According to Andrey Panevin who takes note from John Mearsheimer in an article called “America Unhinged” described as excellent, who sees the degradation of US credibility and society as stemming from its perpetual interventionism and warfare. The 2015 Military Strategy would seem to bear witness to the assessment by many countries now, of America‘s addiction to its own dogma of World Domination by fair and foul means without recognising the “Mr Hyde” persona now controlling them. The strategy completely overlooks the irony of it’s advice – condemning strategy applicable to others, which the US itself employs.Unhinged is putting it mildly Mr. Mearsheim

Hungary Kills The Rothschild Banks: Ordered To Vacate Country.

Hungary Kills The Rothschild Banks: Ordered To Vacate Country..

If only other countries would follow this example, the US dominated vision of the future and it’s accomplice in this tyranny is the IMF. The US has for a long time proliferated it’s insidious mandate by the use of GOP’s and infiltration of the upper echelon of all societies across the globe wherever it could. The ambassadors have training on how  to manipulate events in any given country by whatever means necessary to ensure that the US interests are best served. The theme is apparent in many countries wherever any govt. is not pro -Washington. The first step is to insinuate  trained operatives into key positions of power whereby they can  redirect financial, monetary , social and economic policy and undermining those who stand in their way. The WTO and the TPP are prime examples of America’s stated strategy in helping governments reach the conclusions that the US so desires.  The influence these key personnel engage in  is not merely limited to said objectives but extends far beyond, as the world has seen to the cost of many millions of lives. Although the bottom dollar is important, it is not of paramount concern, there is a far greater dangerous agenda for all those who fall victim to the US hegemony. It has long been established that the US has a goal, nothing less than the World domination or the “earth” as Barack Obama once announced long before he was president and “The world is not enough” is not just the title of a James Bond movie, it is the driving force behind all US “aid”, because that aid is understood – at least by the US – as a debt that they intend to collect on. Beware the Greek bearing gifts, because unlike Russia who makes no demands for it’s aid, there is always a price to pay for accepting such aid from the US.
