Syrian air defences down Israeli jet.

BBC reluctant to admit the jet was hit by Syrian defence missiles.

Syrian air defence systems have finally downed an Israeli jet after months of increasing provocation. One of the two Israeli pilots has died from his injuries whilst the other is only slightly injured. This justifiable response could be exactly what Netanyahu was hoping for given the advances made in the domestic investigation into his corruption. Rumours suggest that indictment is imminent. Netanyahu is hoping a war will sidetrack the accusations. Because he is a typical world leader, he won’t care how many people will perish, his only concern is his own survival.

The BBC report is vague. ‘Israeli jet down amid Syrian fire’ is the headline. This leaves open the possibility of a mechanical failure. They wouldn’t want to give Israel’s enemies a coup that would instill confidence in their ability to defeat them. The most innocuous reporting is always used to defend Israeli interests.

US attack on Syrian allies.

Critics of Trump are wondering where his promises of less interference in the Middle East have gone to. Considering his lack of mental capacity, they are long forgotten. Let’s not forget he is a man who had his own reality TV show and interviews with any so called TV personality always reveals just how out of touch they are. Recent rumours imply that he doesn’t read any reports put in front of him, so this allows those who are closest to shape his thinking. That would be his daughter and her husband. The attack on Syrian Army allies this week is an important sub plot that is closely related to the latest Israeli assault.

The Syrian Arab Army have been extremely resilient since the Russians entered the conflict and the action by Israel and the US is designed to send a message to Assad that he will be stretched on at least two fronts if he responds. Not forgetting the illegal actions of Turkey,

The implications of an effective Syrian air defence.

The Israeli destruction of Lebanon in 2006 was the work of the Israeli Air Force. Lebanon was defenceless in the face of repeated aerial attacks. The IAF could do as they pleased without fear of being confronted in the air. This successful Syrian response changes all that. It was an F-16 that was destroyed but the last jet to be hit by Syrian anti aircraft defences was an F-35, the so called stealth bomber. I wonder why those have not been involved in recent incursions? Flawed perhaps? If unopposed in any form of warfare, the Israelis will show no mercy. They regard the deaths of their opponents as insignificant. A big problem for them is the return home in body bags of Israeli personnel.

Was the US attack on Syrian forces earlier this week the green light for Israel?

The Israelis are opportunists. Although they would reject needing US approval, they prefer it. Having Jared Kushner protecting their interests in the White House is a gift. The Orthodox  Jew Kushner hasn’t even attempted to look impartial because Trump is effectively in cloud cuckoo land and doesn’t care what happens to the Palestinians. This most recent attack on Syria is based on claims that an Iranian drone was destroyed in Israeli air space.  There is no evidence to support this but even if it were true, Israel flies over all its neighbours air space at will and the countless complaints by Syria and Lebanon are ignored by the UN.

The latest from the BBC is that the Israeli attacks are the most intense since 1982. They failed to mention that Israeli losses are the worst since 1982 as well.

Just when you thought the Americans had reached the limit of their stupidity………

The shooting down of a Russian jet suggests the US has supplied terrorists with manpads.

If it weren’t the Americans directly, it will have been authorised by them. The worlds passenger jets have just become very real targets with the use of the lethal surface to air portable hand held missile system. The weapon is highly manoeuvrable and subsequently not easy to detect. It’s success rate is extremely high and in the hands of the mentally challenged, easily influenced and backward ISIS freaks, the danger to all aircraft has risen tenfold.

These people aren’t rational nor religious. They have contorted their holy scriptures in such an outlandish way that they no longer resemble the original text. There is no concern for others, no empathy, no respect for human life, particularly the people they conclude are not in line with their drug fuelled ideology.

The US and primarily the Israelis have been itching to give the rabid extremists some of these weapons. Why would they put ALL aircraft at risk? They didn’t. They must still have control of the manpads. They wouldn’t risk their own commercial airlines, not even to remove Assad. It is today rumoured that a neighbouring country has supplied the manpads, suggesting it could be Turkey. If this is the case, it would still be with the Americans approval.

If indeed Turkey are involved, the repercussions could be very damaging. Russia has already shown how it can damage the Turkish economy. Any further sanctions to punish Erdogan wouldn’t be so publicly acknowledged. Putin is in a different league to most leaders around the world, reprisals from him could be devastating for Turkey. Putin hasn’t been deterred by pressure from US allies and is still carrying on with his policy in Syria. The results of this latest terrorist action will create interesting times. If I were a gambling man, my money would be on Putin.

The brass neck of charity organisations.

Charity pleads to keep Syrian children warm.

A charity TV appeal for Syrian children has just been aired, probably for the thousandth time but it’s the first time I’ve seen it. It beggars belief that the people organising this particular appeal are unaware of the UK government’s attempt to destabilise Syria over a ten year period. It’s difficult to imagine they don’t know about the millions of pounds given to the White Helmets, a thoroughly corrupt organisation that was probably manufactured by a British government agent.  Based in Turkey, a strong critic of Assad, the White Helmets was the idea of a former mercenary and British officer who decided in a change of direction from war maker to aid worker. As unbelievable as this sounds, it’s no more of a miracle than the ability of Al Nusra henchmen changing into White Helmets at will.

The truth is stranger than fiction and the White Helmet story stretches the theory to its limits. Murderous terrorists pretending to be emergency services saving the innocent victims from the bombs of Assad and Russian aircraft. The civilians living in the vicinity of the White Helmets insist that it was the Al Nusra terrorists who were the priority whenever an attack occurred. Even basic medical first aid was refused for the civilian inhabitants.

Aside from the hypocrisy of these charity organisations, an even more worrying trend has emerged over the years. The executives running these charities have become political appointments and are as financially rewarded as their counterparts in corporations. Tactics to raise money are more aggressive and and encourage charitable people to give repeat automatic monthly payments. They also pass on your details to other charities and before you know it, you are being hounded to donate to multiple causes.

The charity industry has become as mendacious as big business. The appeals for the Syrian victims of West inspired violence are a prime example of the cynical government licensed charities.

I refuse to give anything to these charlatans.

For the benefit of Israel.

Rogue Zionist regime still hoping to reap rewards of Syrian chaos.

Despite vast areas of the country being in government hands, the Syrian pain will continue. The recent public announcement of an SDF – ISIS ceasefire merely confirms what many people have suspected.  Whilst building bases in Eastern parts of Syria, without doubt illegally, the American military have been training and supplying the SDF. When Kurdish forces moved south alongside the Euphrates, ISIS simply disappeared, meanwhile Syrian government forces and their allies were met with furious resistance. Apparently it would seem that the US can influence both Kurdish and ISIS forces and clearly they are intent on maintaining control of the assets East of the Euphrates, the question is why?

The hydrocarbon reserves that Syria possess is insignificant to the US. Obviously, the Kurds survived without the revenue from it prior to the war for many years. ISIS were allowed to transport it to Turkey during the period they had access to the oil that was until the Russians attacked one of its tanker convoys. For numerous years Syria has been without an estimated 40% of its oil revenue east of the Euphrates. This income is vital for domestic power and to finance the rebuilding of a devastated country. Another important point to consider is that, compared to the rest of Syria, Kurd controlled areas were relatively untouched by the fighting. This is in stark contrast to Raqqa, which was the home for an Arab population. A rough guide to the expansionist agenda of the Kurds are these two maps. The first is showing Kurd regions in 1957 (but the area of control hadn’t changed much until after the Syrian war began.)

Compare this with the map below and we can see the vast amount of land that the Kurds have acquired.

This cynical conquest has happened during the time many parts of Syria have been reduced to smouldering, wrecked buildings and when the remnants of terrorists have been finally removed from other parts of the country, the focus will shift to the treacherous behaviour of their so called fellow countrymen, the Kurds.

Israel has a good relationship with the Kurds and have been buying cheap oil from them, presumably using Turkish associates to transport it. However, this isn’t the only reason Israel supports the Kurds. The aim of Israel is to weaken Syria so much that they are unable to defend themselves. The political problems in Lebanon have been created by the Saudis, in collusion with their new found friends, the Israelis. The Iraq war, if not inspired by Israel, they were certainly a leading advocate. Gaddafi, before his horrendous murder was also sympathetic to the Palestinian cause. Resistance to the Greater Israel project is very dangerous, even if other nations are used to carry out the dirty work for them.

Frequently we are told the complex web of the Middle East is unfathomable but a glance at history and the connivance of the state of Israel provides ample evidence of their need for weak and divided neighbours. The foot soldiers of the IDF, educated to despise Palestinians from an early age, are only trained in how to control unarmed civilians. The war that the US, UK and others imposed on Syria does have a silver lining, albeit at a terrible price for the civilians. The Syrian Arab Army, Hezbollah and Iranian forces have had to contend with a brutal, callous and devious enemy in ISIS. If the next war is with Israel, they will be well prepared to deal with the check-point charlies that currently make Palestinian lives a misery with their bogus ‘security measures’.

Terrorists won’t change our way of life.

The headline of this article is a term we’ve heard many times, notably after every alleged terrorist attack. High profile politicians rattle out the well used phrase in defiance of any carnage on our streets, whilst neglecting to tell us what they base their theory on. Did ISIS or some other group of murderous criminals make a public announcement to confirm these aims? No, it’s simply the default phrase used following an act of terrorism and they cannot support the claim with any credible evidence.

Never mentioned is the the elephant in the room. We ignore the devastating violence inflicted on Muslim dominated nations and subsequently, the bogus reasons used to justify those attacks. Afghanistan never had nuclear weapons but hiding in the Tora Bora mountains was a villain worthy of a 007 plot, Bin Laden. Luckily, Tony Blair said they did have nuclear weapons in Iraq, we just never found any. Gadaffi couldn’t be allowed to murder his own people but we were. Bashar al Assad, the gentle looking qualified opthalmist didn’t quite look the part but when you’ve got a dedicated team like the White helmets on your side, it doesn’t matter if your target looks as innocent as Mother Theresa.

These partially destroyed countries have one common theme, Muslims. Not exclusively but if you were to drop a bomb at random in any of the four nations, the most likely outcome would be dead Muslims.

Even more surprising is that ‘we’ aren’t being (literally) invaded by armed soldiers of the aforementioned regions. After all, they are within their rights to defend themselves against our aggression under the Geneva Conventions. The fraudulent claim that it is to help them or rid them of a tyrant is pure fiction. I suggest the true primary reason for these illegal slaughters is to remove barriers for Israeli domination of the Middle East. Only by compartmentalising the surrounding neighbours of Israel can they hope to keep them in check. Apparently, splitting up the various groups is the job of the US and it’s lackeys.

So, now we know why there are groups of Muslim fanatics attacking the West.

..Actually, we don’t. What is certain is that our Western lifestyle is NOT the problem. Many of these terrorist plots have been initiated by security services, enticing gullible young men into attempting a slaughter and the ones that are real killers are just that – killers. News agencies don’t mention that ‘white’ criminals are Christian. Even worse than that, ‘terrorism’ is only mentioned if the perpetrators are suspected to be Muslim.

For instance, if we are to believe that Stephen Paddock was the lone gunman in Las Vegas (which I don’t), were the victims ‘terrorised’? The media says not,  purely because he wasn’t a Muslim. How ridiculous and indeed bizarre is that? I think there could be fewer situations that are more terrorising than being amongst that crowd a few months ago.

The acts of terrorism the West is exposed to are a meagre response to the crimes inflicted on other nations and the perpetrators have nothing to do with any religion. It is an obscene list of events that has nothing to do with Islam. However, we do need to look at how we allow our politicians to commit these crimes. In the wider world, we are constantly encouraged to be accountable for our actions, so why are our politicians virtually exempt from (not just) moral condemnation but also the full force of the law for the state terrorism inflicted on people that aren’t a threat to us?

The politicians who direct our military and create crippling economic sanctions on their victims appear to be immune to the blowback felt by the rest of us.

The recent scare at Oxford Circus which resulted in pandemonium in central London appears to be a dispute between two travellers. The event is proof that ‘our’ lives have been changed by the threat of terrorism. We have become scared of our own shadow. The reality that gangs of criminals around the inner cities are an everyday threat is made much worse because thousands of police have been removed from our streets. Meanwhile, the money poured into the ‘security’ industry is mind blowing, despite statistics pointing toward a miniscule threat.

Either way, the people governing us are even less likely to become a victim of the exaggerated terrorism and they know it.

 

Kurdish dream or a Middle Eastern nightmare?

Israeli support for a Kurd state is testament to it’s ethnic cleansing of large swathes of Syria.

Kurd aspirations of a state to call their own has seen ethnic cleansing of various groups of people from East of the Euphrates river. Raqqa hasn’t been cleared of ISIS, it’s been totally destroyed by Kurd and American forces. The plan has been to make a clean slate of large areas of Syria that haven’t been predominantly Kurdish and has been geared up to steal the most valuable energy resources of the Syrian state. Just as in Iraq, the Kurds, with US support are attempting to seize oil wells and gas installations that would effectively make the economy of Syria untenable. Considering the rebuilding of Syria, the revenue from these assets are vital.

Donald Trump and the neocon US government have consistently lied about their aims in war torn Syria by being the driving force behind Kurdish attempts to claim vast areas in Syria. The US has been implementing an Israeli push for autonomy on the basis it would financially ruin the Assad government. Trump has pretended to distance himself from the internal restructuring, whilst carrying out Netanyahu’s plan to the letter.

If it wasn’t obvious before, the US government is now very clearly controlled by Israel. Trump claims to be ‘America First’ but his actions betray the truth.

It’s of no strategic or financial use whatsoever to the US regime. It will be beneficial to private companies who will profit from the theft by the hapless Kurds who have been convinced it is a feasible move. It isn’t. This Kurd nation they want to create is land locked. The only possible route they have for selling the oil is via Turkey. The US policy has been ‘might is right’ but despite the huge amounts spent on ‘defence’, there is a different reality coming to the fore since the revitalised Russia started to upgrade its military capability.

The US spends on its own almost as much as the rest of the world put together. Problematically, most of the defence funding has a propensity to disappear in to thin air On September 10th 2001, Donald Rumsfeld announced that over 2 trillion dollars had gone missing. The statement was never severely scrutinized and the department trying to uncover the discrepancy was unfortunately obliterated in the Pentagon attack.

Provocation continues-Restraint prevails.

Israel have again attacked an installation in Syria, it’s unclear what exactly it was but it’s rumoured two Syrian soldiers perished. The attack was carried out from Lebanese air space, which Israel continually and illegally fly over. There seems to have been agreement made with with Russian authorities that Israel must not enter Syrian airspace. In stark contrast to North Korea simply testing weapons, Israel has not been censured by the UN for flagrantly ignoring international law with regards crimes against both Syria and Lebanon.

Netanyahu is mired in domestic allegations of corruption and appears to be trying to create a crisis that would take the focus from his own problems. Psychopaths don’t concern themselves with death and injury of innocent people when it comes to their own political survival. No one knows for sure but the repeated attacks from war mongering Israel could be an attempt to create a military response.

Syria cannot afford to be fighting the Israelis as well as the terrorists that still need flushing away. Netanyahu knows this. So does Putin.

So what can Syria do to stop these attacks?

The Syrian and their allies need to concentrate on killing as many invaders as possible. Israel have been and still is supporting the elements trying to remove Assad, so every battlefield victory against the terrorists is painful to the Israelis. Syria’s allies will, for the short term have to keep taking these criminal attacks on the chin.

One thing we can be assured of is that these provocations won’t be forgotten. Patience is a virtue and the Syrians will be keeping count of all these attacks. The message to Israel will be: They will be avenged – when Syria decides that the time is right.

Deir Ezzor.

Recent successes by Syrian forces appear to have ignited Kurdish/US interests in the area.

If the map above is accurate, it’s very clear that the US allies are keen to get to something around Deir Ezzor. So far the Americans have been out thought, out maneuvered and embarrassed by their Syrian/Russian/Iranian counterparts. The likelihood is that this move has been anticipated and a plan drawn up to negate it. Interesting times.
