    The world is choosing up sides.
    Erdogan Courts Iran To Stand vs Possible US Provocation
    Turkey controls the Bosporus Straight that are VITAL to Russia. Turkey sees the wisdom of ditching NATO and signing on with Russia. At the same time, various states have bought the S-400 to protect themselves from the local war-monger, israel.
    Israel is inching towards full-on war with Hezbollah and Iran. Israel has long depended on the Samson Option, where it would nuke anybody who attacked. Apparently, they are afraid that this deterrent is no longer working.
    Israel expects to command American troops in a fight on THREE fronts.

    The original problem stems from the fact that Israel is bad real estate in a bad neighborhood. The original settlers were hard-core Russians. There are a million israelis of Russian birth or descent. They slaughtered everybody in Der Yassim,,, and took pictures of the stacked up bodies of women and children. Menachem Begin was there. He later became prime minister. The original terror gangs of Stern and Nehi later became the israeli army.
    The Russians were just too hard-core to get along with anybody. Things have only gotten worse. Israel has ADMITTED that it started the Six Day war without provocation.
    It looks like history and intransigence are closing in on isreal.

    • Will Trump's war cabinet start off the proxy wars?

      Paul Craig Roberts, "We remonstrate on these matters because when it comes to Iran the Donald’s new War Cabinet is a wholly owned subsidiary of Bibi Netanyahu. "
      "Regardless of how this scenario plays out in concrete detail and time frame, one thing is certain. A rising crescendo of tensions and confrontations with all of the War Cabinet's targets----Iran, Syria, Russia, China and North Korea---is fast coming down the pike. "
      Contra Corner » America’s State Wreck Gathers Steam: The Donald’s War Cabinet And The Fiscal Doom Loop, Part 2

      "According to the Russian Defense Ministry, any airstrike or missile hitting targets in territory controlled by the Syrian government would put Russian personnel in danger."
      "The Russian Defense Ministry’s statement came in response to what it called “leaks” in the Western media alleging that Washington is considering launching airstrikes against Syrian government forces.

      “Of particular concern is information that the initiators of such provocations are representatives of the CIA and the Pentagon" Controlled by?

      "The West is going to war with the East. The likely initial targets are Syria, and Iran. Any attack on Iran is a declaration of war on Russia."
      "The provocations will be used as a pretext by the United States and its allies to launch strikes on military and government infrastructure in Syria.”
      "The Russian government must be kicking itself that it again failed to finish the job in Syria and instead permitted Washington to expand its Syrian presence, arm and train its mercenaries, provide chemical weapons, and assemble its fleet to attack Syrian forces in order to prevent their reconquest of Syrian territory.

      The question before us is: If the information that General Rudskoy cited is correct, what will Russia do? Will Russia use its missile defences and air superiority to shoot down the US missiles and aircraft,"
      "If Russia accepts the attack, Washington will push harder. Sooner or later Russia will be unable to accept another push, and war will break out.

      If war breaks out, will it be a limited conventional war or will Washington use the excuse to launch nuclear ICBMs against Russia?"
      Russia was very clear about it's new weapons.

      Will israel burn to further the zionist mad dreams of conquest?
      There are three times as many rockets now. We have been politically correct for TOO LONG. We have let them take over everything. Who is "they"?


      • Proxy war or, no

        In a general sense, England and Germany entered the industrial revolution first. France was in there too but, Napoleon made a monumental blunder. When James Watt offered to power Napoleon’s ships with steam, Napoleon refused. England and Germany competed and England started wars when it couldn't overcome German advantage in manufacturing. The world grew up around England and it could no longer force it's will.

        The baton was passed on to America. Once again, more nations are embracing the industrial revolution and, America is sliding down. America has some 800+ military bases around the world in a long-running attempt to lock up natural resources. Coups and wars have kept it all going.
        Meanwhile, many States have armed themselves to fight off the deadly embrace of the FED and U.S. military. Like England before it, America finds itself unable to maintain it's empire.

        The Graham-Leachy-Bliley act allowed American banks to take all your retirement money and, build up China as an off-shore powerhouse manufacturer. Not surprisingly, China built up it's military too. America has a mutual-defense treaty with Taiwan.
        America has a dire shortage of rare-earth minerals. North Korea has something like $15 trillion worth of these materials. China has used acquisitions to lock up most of the world's supply of rare earths.
        China can easily cripple American manufacturing by cutting off the supply. The only decent rare earth mine in America is at Mountain pass, Ca.

        It is in China's best interests to ensure that North Korea's rare earths don't fall into the hands of pox Americana.
        Kim just had a cozy meeting with Xi. Xi obviously doesn't want America taking over a State right on it's border. Neither does Russia. While China doesn't want to provoke an economic collapse, collapse would be better than having American military in N.K.
        China seems to have settled on the policy of holding Taiwan ransom for American actions. They just did a big parade of naval assets.

        This all takes place in the South China Seas in extremely busy shipping lanes. The Chinese have set up all their new bases in the area. They can shut off shipping at any time. Chinese fighter jets can cross the Taiwan Straights in less than a minute at top speed. China can easily close down everything in the South China Seas and bring on collapse of the West. China could dump U.S. treasuries and cause collapse.
        China could offer $ 2000 and ounce for physical gold and collapse all markets.

        Kim is going to meet with Trump and, the neocons hope to rake him over the coals. BUT, every time that they look at Kim, they will see Xi standing next to him. If they try to play hard-ball in negotiations, Chinese jets will mysteriously appear off the coast of Taiwan.
        The world has built up it's military capacity while Pox Americana builds turkeys like the F-35. Israel has already had a fighter jet blown out of the sky by Syria. The proxy war will most likely kick off in Syrian skies. There can be NO limited proxy war in Iran. That will be an all-or-nothing battle.
        The new Russian jamming systems, plus the S-400 missiles will probably decide the outcome. Russia just can't afford to keep backing down in an effort to keep war from escalating.
        Trump can't very well hold back all the war hawks in congress. It will take heavy losses in Syria to bring a dose of reality. If America doesn't back off in Syria, israel will UNDOUBTEDLY become collateral damage.
        If America doesn't back off in the South China Seas, Taiwan will get smoked.
        Trump will probably let things get to the edge of war just to let everybody stare destruction in the face. The neocons are always trying to use false-flag operations to kick off a war. The Missile fired from a sub off N.K towards Hawaii is the perfect example. We will probably have the proxy war in Syria to decide who would win a wider war.


        • India builds bunkers.

          Well, Trump sent submarine technology to Taiwan to piss off China. Might have something to do with the trade war. XI cozied up to Kim and now, a Korean war is looking VERY messy. The Greeks are evidently not for from a war with Turkey.
          "Despite the 2003 ceasefire agreement, violence has recently erupted between both countries on the LoC, which marked 2017 as the bloodiest year since the ceasefire agreement came into effect.

          Earlier this year, we reported on 40,000 Indians fleeing the Jammu and Kashmir region, as intense military shelling from the Pakistani military turned the region into a war zone."

          Pax Americana is doing all it can to derail the Chinese new silk road. Lighting up India and Pakistan is just logical. Just like lighting up Ukraine.
          Trump wants a wall,,, Saudi Arabia wants a moat.

                It appears like the U.K is pushing war more than anybody else.

                Phucking MORONS.
                12 April, 2018

                Serious developments have taken place overnight concerning the ongoing situation in Syria. ALL of my former colleagues in the Intelligence Community tell me the United States, the United Kingdom, and France have placed their Middle East military units on ALERT for what most believe will be a SUSTAINED US/UK/France direct attack against Syria commencing as early as tonight! "
                "British Air Force units on Cyprus are openly being loaded with bombs, missiles and ammunition. The Russian Baltic Fleet has declared a Combat Alert. Russian strategic bombers are in the air over the Mediterranean Sea, "
                "Russian Air Force has sortied at least two Early Warning Planes (A-50s) over Eastern and Western Syria, each one is guarded by two Russian Air Force (RuAF) fighter jets."

                " RuAF is highly active over Syria with multiple planes airborne near its coast, a U.S. P-8 POSEIDON anti-submarine aircraft was just monitored collecting signal and electronic intelligence off the coast of Syria and is now currently just off Lebanon
                Russian strategic bombers are airborne over the Caspian sea and over Iran, fully loaded with Kh-55SM extend range to 3000 km cruise missiles. These missiles are air-to-ship and they are known to be incredibly precise ship-killers.
                US Warships are reportedly converging in the Mediterranean, with the Pentagon already admitting the USS Donald Cook is on-station near Syria."

                "15 hours ago - Russian media with reference to Iranian dissident and defence expert Babak Taghvaee, reported that Russian Ministry of Defence (MoD) had officially asked Iran to provide access to deploy its heavy bombers in Hamedan Air Base."
                "Former UK Ambassador to Syria: Syrian Chemical Weapons Attack Was STAGED By Islamic Jihadi Propagandists, No One Actually Died"

                Israel is talking tough about how they are going to kick butt on everybody in the area.

                This isn't poor Yugoslavia that didn't have a chance against NATO.
                bombing of Yugoslavia -
                Mar 24, 2014 - Exactly 15 years ago, on March 24, NATO began its 78-day bombing of Yugoslavia. The alliance bypassed the UN under a “humanitarian” pretext, launching aggression that claimed hundreds of civilian lives and caused a much larger catastrophe than it averted."

                Iran seems to have 10 bases in Syria. Look at the map. They can close the Straits of Hormuz in 5 minutes. Blow up one tanker and, insurance rates become prohibitive. They can also close the Gulf Of Aden with little trouble. With minimal trouble, they can close the Suez again.
                Just imagine that Iran gets bombed really bad. What have they got to lose by taking out all oil production in the ME?
                Iran ha a 1/4 million missiles aimed at israel. They aren't Quassongs either. They have been operating an Exocet factory for many years.

                Lebanon will flood israel like a huge colony of ants. Israel has nukes that it threatens to use on any and all enemies. That won't save them. The Patriot missiles won't save them. Iron Dome is just a joke.
                Cheney and Rockefeller want the oil and the deep State wants a war. May they all rot in hell.


                • War for the sake of war

                  Historically, a State's success in war was controlled by; how big it's economy was, how trained and committed it's soldiers were, how advanced it's weapons were-compared to it's opponent, how good it's generals were.
                  Today is a different story. Historically, war was done to occupy territory. Today, war is often an extension of economic policy. Churchill said, "if Germany trades again in the next 50 years, WW I will have been for nothing".
                  Today, we have resource wars. Destroy their military and, take all their resources. We garrison the State and suck out the riches. Success in war depends more and more on weapons, rather than fighters. The days of large infantry battles is long gone.

                  "NATO needs to demonize Russia as much as possible and to even provoke a confrontation to justify getting more money. Of course, it seeks to provoke a confrontation for money but it assumes there will not be World War III because neither side desires to occupy the other. So exactly why do we need standing armies today is simply a political issue. "
                  "If the reason for war is no longer occupation but more like a brawl between two drunks in a bar, then why do we need standing armies especially when we can just push a button?"

                  "The NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg has constantly been pushing for a confrontation with Russia, He has been moving military installations to the Russian border while Putin has been forced to pursue buffer zones around Russia. The European Member States have been instructed that they should construct roads and bridges that will allow tanks to freely move throughout Europe."
                  "What you must understand is that the West NEEDS a war desperately as a distraction from the collapse of Socialism. NATO has been looking for any excuse to turn this into a confrontation with Russia. The crazy thing is that war has changed. Neither side wants to “occupy” the other as was the case with Napoleon and Hitler. So why are we preparing for war? What is the objective?"

                  "Turkey needs a war and they are becoming much more aggressive because the currency is collapsing."
                  "NATO is an organization that can no longer be defined and it seeks to hold onto old world philosophies to justify its existence. NATO needs a war to ensure its own funding. If Russia has no real designs to invade and occupy Europe, then why do we need NATO?"
                  "He came to comprehend that standing armies would be easily used. It was his observations that kings would go to war BECAUSE they had standing armies that they paid for even if they did nothing. The Prince explained that there should be no armies and that would reduce war by itself. "

                    Just read it.


                    • Time to stock up your B.O.B.

                      I've got a lot more notes on the unfolding situation in Syria. The general feeling is that things have progressed to where America won't back down. That isn't to say that Trump won't back down. Evidently, the swamp has smothered him. The war-mongers believe that Putin is bluffing and, will back down. Pox Americana is fighting for supremacy. Putin is fighting for the survival of Russia.
                      This is a cross-post claiming that Trump has been neutralized. You should read it to get a feeling for what is going on in the White house.

                      Germany and Italy have refused to participate.
                      " Britain and France likely going along enough to likely kill it.
                      As of now, it’s anyone’s guess precisely what’s coming – to be known once hostilities begin.
                      It’s also unclear how Russia will respond – virtually certain to retaliate if its personnel in Syria are harmed.

                      Here is a link for a critical side note,
                      "Letting America get away with naked aggression time and again assures more of it.

                      If Russia fails to act forcefully this time, will it wait for its heartland to be attacked before defending its national security?"

                      The Coming Firestorm in Syria - Stephen Lendman
                      OK, NATO has surrounded Russia with bases and missiles. Evidently, the Military Industrial Complex has decided that now is the time to put Russia up against the wall. Syria is NOT what is at stake for Russia. Russia has developed a lot of new, impressive weapons. The timing seems premature here. Possibly, the West is attacking before Russia gains an even bigger technological lead. Wars are no longer fought by armies with guns. Wars are fought with long-reach weapons. Both kinetic and cyber.

                      "It's possible the locations lie far from Russian forces in the region and therefore would carry a low risk of escalating tensions with Russia — but the White House has indicated it's not afraid to target Russian assets. ???
                      Any strike on Syria, Russia's ally, runs the risk triggering a massive Russian response that could lead to war between the world's biggest nuclear powers."

                      You don't have to read all the body of the links. Just read enough to get a feel for what might happen. All eyes are focused on Syria. Now would be a good time for China to pull off a BIG one. The West could NEVER respond.
                      China to hold live-fire navy drills in support for Russia over Syria - Business Insider

                      David Stockman is known as a worrier. Just the same, that doesn't mean that he is wrong. I'll do excerpts but, you should read the whole article.
                      "Folks, like some alien abductors, the Deep State has taken the Donald hostage, and with ball-and-chain finality. Whatever pre-election predilection he had to challenge the Warfare State has apparently been completely liquidated."
                      "Indeed, did the robo-machines and boys and girls down in the casino not ponder the meaning of this message from the Kremlin? It does not leave much to the imagination:

                      #Russian ambassador in Beirut : "If there is a strike by the Americans on #Syria , then... the missiles will be downed and even the sources from which the missiles were fired," Zasypkin told Hezbollah's al-Manar TV, speaking in Arabic."
                      "As a reminder, this is what the Donald said just last week:

                      “We’ll be coming out of Syria, like, very soon,” Trump said on Thursday, “Let the other people take care of it now. Very soon, very soon, we’re coming out....We’re going to get back to our country, where we belong, where we want to be.”

                      The fact is, it's way too late to drag Bashar Assad behind the Moammar Khadafy Memorial Jeep to be ritually sodomized by his enemies. That's because he's already won the civil war "

                      This is completely intolerable and unacceptable. "We" stole the oil and, we plan to keep it.
                      "Indeed, the only thing that a regime change attempt at this late date would accomplish is a resurrection of the remnants of ISIL (small black specs) or an upwelling of chaos from the three or four islets (green areas) that warring gangs of rebels, jihadists, salafists and blood-thirsty warlords now nominally control.

                      So the map below, in fact, tells you what is really going on. To wit, the neocons and deep staters around Trump--with the Walrus Mouth (Bolton) now literally shouting in his ear----are really about picking a fight with Iran and Russia. These are really Imperial Washington's designated enemies, and the purpose of the impending attack on Syrian military installations is to intimidate them into backing down"

                      Backing down means eventual total destruction.

                      "Indeed, with the defense budget already cranked up to the absurd level of $720 billion, the Deep State and its military/industrial/surveillance/congressional complex allies would like nothing better than maximum rhetorical belligerence (and occasional provocative acts) from Russia and Iran in order to keep the national security gravy train inflating toward the $1 trillion funding mark."
                      About that budget,,, Important side note,

                      "Namely, since America lost its only real enemy in 1991, Washington has become an unhinged war capital. It is now endangering the entire planet in a doom-loop of expanding military muscle, multiplying foreign interventions and occupations, intensifying blowback from the victims of Washington's aggression and an ever greater chorus of Empire justifying experts, apparatchiks and politicians getting fat on the banks of the Potomac."
                      "Nevertheless, the extent of the Donald's capture by the Deep State and its partisan auxiliaries could not be more dramatically evident than in the last seven days of events in Eastern Ghouta."

                      So last Friday, the Syrian military resumed its offensive and the purported gas attack occurred the next day, when it appears that it was all over except the shouting.

                      We will leave for others to explain the unexplainable. To wit, why in the world would Bashar Assad, who was on the verge of a complete victory over the last redoubt of rebel enemies that could threaten his regime, use chemical weapons on civilians and children when all except a few hard-core fighters had already agreed to get on buses and evacuate Douma entirely?


                      Here are the players,
                      You can get very good information from Veterans Today. They list an article that sounds very good. No matter what I try, I am blocked. maybe you can see it.

                      Here is the war-walrus himself,

                      Keep in mind that the Missile cruiser sitting off the coast of Syria is the Donald Cook. Last time that it tangled with the Russians, the Russians COMPLETELY shut down all electronics,,, even though it was linked up to the shore batteries in Romania. Is it to be sacrificed? Will any other ships function?

                      Here is more from Roberts.

                      • War and dust

                        Here is a good look at the history of "America, the bully"

                        Historically, the king sent his men off to do battle while he remained at a safe distance.
                        Times have changed. The world now has long-reach weapons.
                        In 2015, America attacked China in the city of Tianjin. We hit them with a kinetic weapon called "rods of God". It produced a 5 kiloton blast that is now a lake. Reportedly, President Xi was the prime target as, he was there that day. Also, the big Chinese military super-computer was a target.
                        War is no longer decided by mobs of men-at-arms.


                        Turn around go back down
                        Back the way you came
                        Can't you see that flash of fire

                        Turn around go back down
                        Back the way you came
                        Babylon is laid to waste
                        Egypt's buried in her shame
                        Their mighty men are all beaten down
                        Their kings are all fallin' in the ways
                        Oh God, pride of man
                        Broken in the dust again

                        • Trump buying time?

                          The drums of war are not beating quite so loudly now. The U.S. and U.K. blocked efforts to investigate the so-called gas attack in Syria. Sweden has called for a mechanism / body to do just that. The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is now going to Syria to investigate. Stranger than strange, the Pentagon is getting all of their "intelligence" from SOCIAL MEDIA.
                          "Pentagon admits NO evidence of chemical attack in Syria, relying on 'social media' ... Assad's government are, based on mainstream reports from outlets like the BBC, relying almost entirely on Islamist rebel groups and the activists and NGOs that operate within their territory"

                          Here is a pretty good report about what is going on,
                          Maybe Trump has NOT been buffaloed by the deep State. Maybe he is just "acting out" and buying time.
                          Here is a rundown on armaments,

                          Nuclear arsenal of Russia

                          The exact number of nuclear warheads is a state secret and is therefore a matter of guesswork. The Federation of American Scientists estimates that Russia possesses 4,300 nuclear warheads, while the U.S. has 4,000; Russia has 1,950 active strategic nuclear warheads, compared with the U.S. having 1,650.[2] On the other hand, Russia is estimated to have roughly 1,500 tactical nuclear weapons, all of which are declared to be in central storage.[10]The RS-28 Sarmat[11] (Russian: РС-28 Сармат; NATO reporting name: SATAN 2), is a Russian liquid-fueled, MIRV-equipped, super-heavy thermonuclear armed intercontinental ballistic missile in development by the Makeyev Rocket Design Bureau[11] from 2009,[12] intended to replace the previous R-36 missile.

                          Its large payload would allow for up to 10 heavy warheads or 15 lighter ones or up to 24 hypersonic glide vehicles Yu-71,[13][14] or a combination of warheads and massive amounts of countermeasures designed to defeat anti-missile systems;[15][16]

                          it was heralded by the Russian military as a response to the U.S. Prompt Global Strike.[17]

                          In 2015, information emerged that Russia may be developing a new nuclear torpedo, up to 100 megatons[18] , the Status-6 Ocean Multipurpose System,[19][20][21] codenamed “Kanyon” by Pentagon officials.[22][23] This weapon is designed to create a tsunami wave up to 500m tall that will radioactively contaminate a wide area on an enemy coasts with cobalt-60, and to be immune to anti-missile defense systems such as laser weapons and railguns that might disable an ICBM.[20][21][23][24][25] Two potential carrier submarines, the Project 09852 Belgorod, and the Project 09851 Khabarovsk, are new boats laid down in 2012 and 2014 respectively.[22][23][26][27] Status 6 appears to be a deterrent weapon of last resort.[25][26][27] It appears to be a torpedo-shaped robotic mini-submarine, that can travel at speeds of 185 km/h (100 kn).[25][26][28] More recent information suggests a top speed of 100 km/h (54 kn), with a range of 10,000 km (6,200 mi) and a depth maximum of 1,000 m (3,300 ft).[29] This underwater drone is cloaked by stealth technology to elude acoustic tracking devices.[20][26]

                          "There are people saying Russia are putting fuel in the R-36M2 Voevodas. They are MIRVed, and have an all-up launch weight of 220 tons each."

                          "A staggering portion—maybe up to 90 percent—of United States assistance to Afghanistan is embezzled, diverted, or wasted. "

                          • What next?

                            Well, I guess that Trump was not buying time. Who knows if he is even in command?
                            Fact-finding teams from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, an international watchdog agency based in The Hague, were expected to arrive in Douma on Saturday
                            U.S. fires cruise missiles at Syria in retaliation for suspected poison gas attack
                            So, we just HAD to bomb them before any truth came out.


                            • Suffer some violence to bring peace?

                              Well, the OPCW was going to show up very quickly. Instead of waiting for the ships to arrive, they did a rush-job to destroy the (lack of) evidence of a gas attack. This was MI5 and MOSSAD. May is responsible for this and, wanted to avoid the great embarrassment of being proved a liar. 70% of the missiles were intercepted and destroyed. The planes stood off the borders of Syria to fire. I'm guessing that Putin showed great restraint.
                              Britain dearly wants to get Russia to attack to sour any future trade relations with Russia.
                              Putin wants to see integration of Western and Eastern Europe. The S-400 could have most likely knocked out a few planes. That B2 could be targeted on just it's enormous sonic signature.

                              Syria used old technology.
                              New tech S300 and S400 would have undoubtedly hit everything. The Pentagon must now admit that all it's smart missiles are actually smart targets. In spite of what Raytheon and General Dynamics may claim.
                              Before we go condemning Trump too loudly, we have to remember what the final objective is.

                              • So, why do we even have a military?

                                Stockman has a great rant about defending America. Eisenhower warned us about letting the military-industrial complex getting too big with too much power. After WW II, there wasn't much for them to do. They whipped up a war in Korea but, it wasn't the money-maker that they had hoped. The cold war was the next best thing. LOTS of money was spent but, armies didn't actually fight. It could go on forever like that. The money would flow without limit. Unfortunately for the MIC, Russia went broke. There was no possible enemy on the horizon that would justify a big military. We could just have gotten rid of most of the military.

                                "Instead, the Imperial City went in an opposite direction and ended up embracing a de facto policy of Empire First. The latter will cost $700 billion during the current year and is heading for $900 billion annually a few years down the road.

                                In a word, Empire First easily consumes one-half trillion dollars more in annual budgetary resources than would America First."
                                "Obviously, it's also why Imperial Washington has appointed itself global policeman. Functioning as the gendarme of the planet is the only possible justification for the extra $500 billion per year cost of Empire First.

                                For example, why does the US still deploy 90,000 US forces and their dependents in Japan and Okinawa and 30,000 in South Korea?"
                                "when the Soviet Union and the Red Army perished, there was nothing left to defend against. NATO should have declared "mission accomplished" and dissolved itself.

                                Instead, it has become a political jackhammer for Empire First policies by expanding to 29 nations---many of them on Russia's doorstep."
                                "You simply can't make up $500 billion worth of phony reasons for an Empire First national security policy without going off the deep-end. You have to invent missions, mandates and threats that are just plain stupid (like the purported Russian "occupation" of Crimea) or flat out lies (like Saddam's alleged WMDs)."
