BUILDING-UP TO WORLD WAR III
14/10/16 © S.N.Strutt
Pretty heavy stuff! I recently listened to this show, here's the link! http://www.blogtalkradio.com/cfp-radio/2016/10/10/steve-quayle-on-the-hagmann-report-101016
Steve Quayle had a vision or dream that could be pretty significant & well worth a listen. (Below in the COMMENTS by Joseph Candel, he mentions Steve Quayle's DREAM in detail, and what he thinks of it, and what it could possibly mean)
The vision is explained in the last hour of this show! It goes along with the links below, but this gives, if true, more specific info. and something to be aware of!
At any rate, it well worth a listen, especially with all that's going on now!
"While the American media is hypnotizing the American people with a side-show of the latest "groping" done by either Bill Clinton or Donald Trump, RUSSIA IS MAKING SERIOUS PLANS TO GO TO NUCLEAR WAR: WARNING IT'S CITIZENS TO PREPARE BY KNOWING WHERE THEIR CLOSEST BOMB SHELTER IS, AND TO BE PREPARED, TO GET THERE FAST, WHILE AT THE SAME TIME LINING UP NUCLEAR MISSILE BATTERIES, ALONG THE BORDER WITH EUROPE AND AIMING THE MUCH LARGER AND NEWEST -STATE OF THE ART- INTERCONTINENTAL BALLISTIC MISSILES AT AMERICA!
ALSO, PUTIN IS PULLING NO PUNCHES, IN THAT, HE AND HIS STAFF ADMONISHING WESTERN LEADERS LIKE THAT APPARENT "IDIOT" JOE BIDEN, WHO CALLED PUTIN'S ARMY AN ARMY OF "LITTLE GREEN MEN," "VIRTUALLY HARMLESS AGAINST THE MUCH SUPERIOR POWER OF THE WEST...
-THAT THEY ARE SEVERELY OFF BASE, OUTGUNNED AND OUT MANNED, AND PICKING ON THE WRONG GUY! SO WE ARE VERY CLOSE TO NUCLEAR WAR! PERHAPS A FEW CITIES WILL BE NUKED AND THE ANTICHRIST STEPS IN TO BRING PEACE TEMPORARILY FOR THE LAST 7 YEAR TIME PERIOD OF
PROPHECY...? BUT NEEDLESS TO SAY, THIS IS A REALLY BIG DEAL THAT IS BEING TOTALLY IGNORED BY OUR "POWER DRUNKEN LEADERS!" READ THE LATEST JANES DEFENSE MANUALS! RUSSIA COULD KICK AMERICA'S ASS IN NO TIME AT ALL WITH TOTALLY SUPERIOR WEAPONRY. OUR MILITARY
HAS BEEN CUT DOWN TO NOTHING BY OBAMA! THIS IS THE MOST DEADLY SERIOUS TIME IN WORLD HISTORY!- John Benjamin
World War 3 May Now Be Imminent?
© S.N.Strutt, author of this website 15/10/16
We have all heard these kind of scary declarations for decades, so I personally take the articles about IMMINENT NUCLEAR WAR with a big pinch of salt...
...however I do think that there is a lot of excellent information here.
Whether a nuclear war between the USA and Russia happens now, on in the far future is not the main point, but it is prophesied that the USA will eventually be totally burned with fire according to Revelations 17 & 18
My take on that, is that it won't happen until the time of "THE GREAT TRIBULATION" as mentioned in Revelations 12.6,14. i.e. during the last half of 7 year reign of the coming ANTICHRIST ( 2 Thessalonians chapter 2 ) You will find many more details concerning "THE ANTI-CHRIST" in my book mentioned below.
See another article on my website called "AMERICA THE WHORE" as probably mentioned in Revelations 17 & 18: http://www.outofthebottomlesspit.co.uk/418803990.
Sadly the USA IS DELIBERATELY BEING ENCIRCLED AND BETRAYED BY ITS OWN GOVERNMENT as well as infiltrators in the form of Socialists & UN Communists, so that eventually OTHER NATIONS will easily be able to TAKE OUT the USA. We know that the ELITE are more than guilty in the USA,...
...but what about millions of innocent people who have nothing to do with the EVILS of both HIGH FINANCE & POWER.
Our best DEFENSE is for everyone to desperately pray for God to Withstand the Forces of Evil for as long as possible.
For the past 40+ years there have been many dangerous moments on the world scene of politics, but how much of it is actually REAL, and how much is actually SCARE TACTICS to force the masses to let the Elite pass more laws of CONTROL?
"So far throughout history Satan has been prevented time and time again from totally taking over and totally destroying God’s creation. Now in these modern times he finally has the possibility in his grip, as only in the past 60 years, since the advent of the atomic age, has man the capability of totally destroying the planet. (2 Thessalonians 2.7-12) God’s protection of this planet because of its continued extreme wickedness will eventually be withdrawn."
"One day after all of the truly saved have been resurrected and Raptured to heaven with Jesus (at the very end of the 3 and a half years of tribulation), and thus all positive spiritual light has left the planet for a while until Armageddon, this would then be the perfect time for the rising of total darkness from the bottomless pits and tunnels all around the earth. There would be no restraining force!"

(Steve:-The following letter I received from Joe, after posting the above observations called WW III NOW MAY NOW BE IMMINENT?)
Comment by Joseph Candel (15/10/16)
Hi! I agree & have
always felt that the the destruction of the Mother of Harlots (USA) would happen in the Great Tribulation as described in Revelation 17 & 18 & particularly 17:12-13,& 16 And the ten horns which thou saw are ten kings, which have received no kingdom
as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
REV.17:13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.REV.17:16 And the ten horns which thou saw upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. So I think we need these 10 kings & the AC united before the total destruction of the USA.
So I agree with this that the USA total destruction will be in the Great Tribulation. I don't think at this time period the USA will be Nuked! Steve's vision was that 10 Cities could be hit with a Nuke or could be suitcase bombs or dirty bomb something that could effect the USA where marshal law would be declared? Also with Steve's Quayle’s vision the question is will it happen or is this something he may have received for later on? I don't know! Maybe even what he got naming 10 cities won't happen? There was a prophecy in a publication years ago, that said that the world Government would use war, economic collapse, disasters, (HARRP & Woodpecker) could be used to create disasters, & there is the terrorism card & this would create chaos & great confusion to bring in the New World Govt. Yes, there's a lot of hype going on & I still remember the Cuban missile crises where it seemed that the Atomic war was just an inch away. Girls in my school were crying & everybody was freaked out. I think with all that's going on we also still have to remember D.B.Berg’s Daniel 11 take & that war could still happen as the AC fights 5 or 6 wars & possibly the verse in Daniel 11:44 could possibly be the Nuke war.
Here's the link http://www.countdown.org/en/entries/features/the-rise-reign-and-wars-of-the-antichrist/ This was published in Sept 2016 & I basically took this from D.B.Berg's dissertation, as he talked about the various wars of the AC.
D.B.Berg also suggested that there could be a war before the covenant & is this current situation leading to a war & an eventual covenant? Maybe Maybe not? Although verse 21 in Dan 11 first introduces the AC as a vile person as he comes in with peace & flatteries then uses war or the threat of war in verse 22. So I just wanted to clarify that I don't believe a total Nuke war will happen but I think its possible that 10 USA cities could be hit in some way? Remember the late Russian Lebed went to the USA & went to congress & stated that there are Russian suitcase Nukes in the USA? True or false you decide?
So I just want to clarify that I don't believe the USA will be totally nuked now but some pretty heavy events could possibly cause a mighty widening of the eyes to cause great confusion in the USA as in the old warning tract that is still right on in my opinion. So will Steve Q 10 USA cities get hit maybe, maybe not? I don't know! What if it's for later if a true prophecy. Also, he also said in his vision some cities in Europe would get hit but didn't name them yet. So I don't know! Remember all of D.B.Berg’s Dreams about the American Nightmare back in the 70’s. So is the USA turning into a nightmare? It sure is! I recently re-read the Book of Jeremiah & its really fits the USA as what was showed to D.B.Berg from the Lord. So there are a lot of scenarios out there & lot of Nuke hype out there right now & again I believe the nuke war will be in the Great Tribulation & this is what Simon Peter & I discussed on some of his ET shows! (https://soundcloud.com/christarecords/128-nightlight-latest-currents-with-endtime-joe?in=christarecords/sets/nightlight-shows)
Steve Q has been pretty right on over the years but he gets a lot of his info via various sources, but this 10 cities was a dream or vision & wasn't the total destruction of the USA! So I guess we'll just have to wait & see, but there are a number of watchmen who are very concerned about current events. In my personal opinion I think 2016 & 2017 could be critical on the world stage.
I don't think they'll let Trump in, but I even look at a far out scenario what if Trump got in started to change things becomes the king of the south & stands up against the king of the North? Put that in your pipe & smoke it! Ha! But of course the AC will win as the king of the north. Now I doubt that this would happen, but it could possibly be a scenario??
Another scenario was the famous William Brannon had a vision back in the 30's that the last USA president would be a cruel women? Does this mean Hillary will win & under her presidency get Nuked in her first or 2nd term maybe maybe not!? Its just a possible scenario. She looks pretty sick & weak health wise!
So I just wanted clarify my short comment. I think its possible that 10 USA cities could get it hard, according to Steve Q but maybe its for later than sooner or maybe it will be sooner, or maybe his vision was false. I don't know? My foundation stone to Bible Prophecy is D.B.Berg's 16 Major Points of the ET.
Also, Steve I believe your writings are very good & right on. But I just want to make clear what I was thinking about Steve QUAYLE'S dream & I don't think the USA will be totalled out now that I believe is in the Great Tribulation!

By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die
The recent from Pravda tells us that Moscow, Russia is now prepared for a possible nuclear attack upon their country with enough underground bomb shelters for the entire population of the Russian capital. Telling us that 100% of the city's population will be able to be protected as a of new approaches to civil defense, we're also told their bunkers are completely maintained, stocked and ready to go should they be needed due to a 'man-made emergency or nuclear attack'.
While this recent story from the Associated Press tells us that Russia has just accused the US of nurturing 'an aggressive nuclear strategy' in a strongly-worded statement, this new story from the Gazeta drops a bombshell on us all, informing us that between October 4th and October 7th, a massive drill involving 40 million Russian people and about 200,000 professional rescue units will participate in a massive evacuation drill that will be going on all across the country. You can see their story translated at this Google Translator link. Every major Russian city will be involved in these drills.
While 'evacuating' 40 million people may only be a 'drill', we have to take a look at the massive amount of logistics involved to accomplish such maneuvers before we ask if this is really just a 'drill' afterall or something much, much more?
While Russia builds enough underground nuclear bunkers to accomodate the entire 11+ million people now living in Moscow, underground shelters in America are generally reserved for the politically well-connected (think Clinton's, Obama's and Bush's) and the 'elite' who have enough money to build such bunkers themselves as detailed in this recent ANP story.
While this recent over at SHTFPlan tells us about the best 3 'zombie apocalypse' shelters for those not able to afford underground shelters in the hundreds of thousands to million dollar range like the 'super rich' are buying up,the fact that 40 Russians will be taking part in a massive drill unlike any drills seen before should send up a very loud and clear alarm to anybody in America still paying attention - it may soon be 'on'.
The recent by Kurt Nimmo over at Activist Post tells us that US State Department Spokesman John Kirby recently threatened to send Islamic terrorists into Russia to attack Russian cities, a warning that was not lost on Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova who stated “We can’t assess those statements as anything else but a call, a directive for ,” while Russian Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov added the statement by Kirby amounted to “the most frank confession by the U.S. side so far that the whole ‘opposition’ ostensibly fighting a ‘civil war’ in Syria is a U.S.-controlled international terrorist alliance.” “What makes Kirby’s statement particularly shocking is that the scale of direct U.S. influence on terrorists’ activity is global and reaches as far as Russia.”
Why would the US government under Barack Obama be providing support to the same terrorists that have declared war upon the United States, the West and have vowed to kill as many Americans as they possibly can? As Maj General Konashenkov stated, this admission by the US State Department should prove to millions of Americans that our government is sponsoring terrorism and the entire fight against ISIS is nothing but a 'charade' to fool the American people.
We have time and again on ANP that it's quite clear the government of Barack Obama is proving a massive amount of support to the same terrorists that want to kill Americans and as this recent story from the Political Insider tells us, we now have 100% proof that Democratic candidate Clinton sold ISIS terrorists weapons as well. The just days ago from Russian Insider tells us that with everything else now going on in the world, the US government is caught in a very tough decision: Should the US government ramp up their support of terrorist child beheaders in Syria or should they launch World War 3?
In the recent story by Greg Hunter over at USAWatchdog featuring an with Trends Forecaster Gerald Celente we learn that an 'October Surprise' is likely still on the table and it may very well involve a huge war, though the situation in Europe with the continuing collapse of Deutsche bank ways heavily on his mind as do terror attacks here in America. As Celente has often warned us, "when all else fails, they bring us to war."
Why would the Russian government run a drill involving 40 Russian people evacuating to underground bunkers unless they were aware of something imminent on the horizon? Has the US government built massive underground shelters big enough to accomodate the entire population of our nation's capital, Washington DC?
Might all of this just be nothing at all? As we're told in this recent story from Global Research, another Clinton presidency guarantees that everything that the 'nwo' wants done will get done. One of the things that guarantees is that there will be war with Russia according to the story's author - it has been well documented that Clinton wants war with Russia for allegedly hacking the DNC and exposing the 'Clinton crime family's' many myriad crimes. Should America go to war with Russia, virtually guanteeing the deaths of tens to hundeds of millions of Americans, so that the Clinton's can continue to get away with their massive war crimes, financial crimes and crimes against humanity?
As we've been told again and again by Russian Insiders living here in America, if the US decides for some completely and totally insane reason to attack Russia, within a very short period of time the US would be left without: A banking system, transportation systems, an electrical grid, public utilities, an , communication systems and any form of operating government.Quite literally sending us back to the dark ages, we're also warned the entire would likely be covered in a coating of radioactive ash.
While those same Russian Insiders also tell us that the very last thing that the Russians want is World War 3 with America as they know what that would mean, it's clear that the mass majority of the American people are totally clueless about a possible war with Russia looming ahead of us that could lead to the extermination of upwards of 90% of us if we are attacked by a Russian EMP and our electrical grid is taken down for any extended period of time.
Would it be worth it to you, personally, for America to go to war with Russia in an effort to help coverup the murders and war crimes committed by the 'Clinton crime family' if it means that you no longer have nearly all of the necessities to live in modern society today? Imagine living your life without electricity, banks, transportation systems, the , communications and a functioning government? We'll close before videos with this warning to the American people from Russian Insiders living here in the USA and Dmitry Orlov:
The operational abilities of the new Russian military have been most persuasively demonstrated during the recent against ISIS, Al Nusra and other foreign-funded terrorist groups operating in Syria. A long time ago Russia had to respond to provocations by fighting land battles on her own territory, then launching a counter-invasion; but this is no longer necessary. Russia’s new weapons make retaliation instant, undetectable, unstoppable and perfectly lethal. Thus, if tomorrow a war were to break out between the US and Russia, it is guaranteed that the US would be obliterated.
At a minimum, there would no longer be an electric grid, no internet, no oil and gas pipelines, no interstate highway system, no air transportation or GPS-based navigation. Financial centers would lie in ruins. Government at every level would cease to function. US armed forces, stationed all around the globe, would no longer be resupplied. At a maximum, the entire landmass of the US would be covered by a layer of radioactive ash. We tell you this not to be alarmist, but because, based on everything we know, we are ourselves alarmed. If attacked, Russia will not back down; she will retaliate, and she will utterly annihilate the United States
.For those looking for more souces about this massive drill, you can find it here, here and here, each of those links already translated via Google translator.
The mass majority of the American people don't war with Russia and the Russian people clearly don't war with America. The Russian leadership doesn't war with America so why does US leadership want war with a that could rapidly send us to a 'new dark ages' with hundreds of millions of Americans dead?
Imagine everybody that you know in the world no longer alive on the face of this Earth because of a globalists war against Russia that turns nuclear: Would it be worth it to you? It clearly would for them...they think...in their mass insanity.
“And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.”
Wars And Rumours Of Wars
Paul Craig Roberts
July 22, 2016
The Western pubic doesn’t know it, but Washington and its European vassals are convincing Russia that they are preparing to attack. Eric Zuesse reports on a German newspaper leak of a Bundeswehr decision to declare Russia to be an enemy nation of Germany.
This is the interpretation that some Russian politicians themselves have put on the NATO military bases that Washington is establishing on Russia’s borders.
Washington might intend the military buildup as pressure on President Putin to reduce Russian opposition to Washington’s unilateralism. However, it reminds some outspoken Russians such as Vladimir Zhirinovsky of Hitler’s troops on Russia’s border in 1941.
Zhirinovsky is the founder and leader of Russia’s Liberal Democratic Party and a vice chairman of the Russian parliament. In a confrontation with the editor of a German newspaper, Zhirinovsky tells him that German troops again on Russia’s border will provoke a preventive strike after which nothing will remain of German and NATO troops. “The more NATO soldiers in your territory, the faster you are going to die. To the last man. Remove NATO from your territory!” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQm8L8d8uDc
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has expressed his frustration with Washington’s reliance on force and coercion instead of diplomacy. It is reckless for Washington to convince Russia that diplomacy is a dead end without promise. When the Russians reach that conclusion, force will confront force.
Indeed Zhirinovsky has already reached that point and perhaps Vladimir Putin also. As I reported, Putin recently dressed down Western presstitutes for their role in fomenting nuclear war. http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2016/07/08/are-you-planning-your-retirement-forget-about-it-you-wont-survive-to-experience-it/ See also: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article45055.htm
Putin has made it clear that Russia will not accept US missile bases in Poland and Romania. He has informed Washington and the imbecilic Polish and Romanian governments. However, as Putin observed, “they don’t hear.”
The inability to hear means that Washington’s arrogance has made Washington too stupid to take seriously Putin’s warning. If Washington persists, it will provoke the preventive strike that Zhirinovsky told the German editor the Merkel regime was inviting.
Americans need to wake up to the dangerous situation that Washington has created, but I doubt they will. Most wars happen without the public’s knowledge until they happen. The main function of the American left-wing is to serve as a bogyman with which to scare conservatives about the country’s loss of morals, and the main function of conservatives is to create fear and hysteria about immigrants, Muslims, and Russians. There is no sign that Congress is aware of approaching Armageddon, and the media consists of propaganda.
I and a few others try to alert people to the real threats that they face, but our voices are not loud enough. Not even Vladimir Putin’s voice is loud enough. It looks like the West won’t hear until “there remains nothing at all of the German and NATO troops,” and of Poland and Romania and the rest of us.
A world war has begun. Break the silence – John Pilger
This is an edited version of an address by John Pilger at the University of Sydney, entitled ‘A World War Has Begun.’
Published time: 22 Mar, 2016 21:20
I have been filming in the Marshall Islands, which lie north of Australia, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Whenever I tell people where I have been, they ask, "Where is that?" If I offer a clue by referring to "Bikini", they say, "You mean the swimsuit."
Few seem aware that the bikini swimsuit was named to celebrate the nuclear explosions that destroyed Bikini Island. Sixty-six nuclear devices were exploded by the United States in the Marshall Islands between 1946 and 1958 – the equivalent of 1.6 Hiroshima bombs every day for twelve years.
Bikini is silent today, mutated and contaminated. Palm trees grow in a strange grid formation. Nothing moves. There are no birds. The headstones in the old cemetery are alive with radiation. My shoes registered "unsafe" on a Geiger counter.
Standing on the beach, I watched the emerald green of the Pacific fall away into a vast black hole. This was the crater left by the hydrogen bomb they called "Bravo". The explosion poisoned people and their environment for hundreds of miles, perhaps forever.
On my return journey, I stopped at Honolulu airport and noticed an American magazine called Women's Health. On the cover was a smiling woman in a bikini swimsuit, and the headline: "You, too, can have a bikini body." A few days earlier, in the Marshall Islands, I had interviewed women who had very different "bikini bodies;" each had suffered thyroid and other life-threatening cancers.
Unlike the smiling woman in the magazine, all of them were impoverished: the victims and guinea pigs of a rapacious superpower that is today more dangerous than ever.
I relate this experience as a warning and to interrupt a distraction that has consumed so many of us. The founder of modern propaganda, Edward Bernays, described this phenomenon as "the conscious and intelligent manipulation of the habits and opinions" of democratic societies. He called it an "invisible government".
How many people are aware that a world war has begun? At present, it is a war of propaganda, of lies and distraction, but this can change instantaneously with the first mistaken order, the first missile.
In 2009, President Obama stood before an adoring crowd in the centre of Prague, in the heart of Europe. He pledged himself to make "the world free from nuclear weapons". People cheered and some cried. A torrent of platitudes flowed from the media. Obama was subsequently awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
It was all fake. He was lying.
The Obama administration has built more nuclear weapons, more nuclear warheads, more nuclear delivery systems, more nuclear factories. Nuclear warhead spending alone rose higher under Obama than under any American president. The cost over thirty years is more than $1 trillion.
A mini nuclear bomb is planned. It is known as the B61 Model 12. There has never been anything like it. General James Cartwright, a former Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has said, "Going smaller [makes using this nuclear] weapon more thinkable."
In the last eighteen months, the greatest build-up of military forces since World War Two – led by the United States – is taking place along Russia's western frontier. Not since Hitler invaded the Soviet Union have foreign troops presented such a demonstrable threat to Russia.
Ukraine – once part of the Soviet Union – has become a CIA theme park. Having orchestrated a coup in Kiev, Washington effectively controls a regime that is next door and hostile to Russia: a regime rotten with Nazis, literally. Prominent parliamentary figures in Ukraine are the political descendants of the notorious OUN and UPA fascists. They openly praise Hitler and call for the persecution and expulsion of the Russian speaking minority.
This is seldom news in the West, or it is inverted to suppress the truth.
In Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia – next door to Russia – the US military is deploying combat troops, tanks, heavy weapons. This extreme provocation of the world's second nuclear power is met with silence in the West.
What makes the prospect of nuclear war even more dangerous is a parallel campaign against China.
Seldom a day passes when China is not elevated to the status of a "threat." According to Admiral Harry Harris, the US Pacific commander, China is "building a great wall of sand in the South China Sea."
What he is referring to is China building airstrips in the Spratly Islands, which are the subject of a dispute with the Philippines – a dispute without priority until Washington pressured and bribed the government in Manila and the Pentagon launched a propaganda campaign called "freedom of navigation."
What does this really mean? It means freedom for American warships to patrol and dominate the coastal waters of China. Try to imagine the American reaction if Chinese warships did the same off the coast of California.
I made a film called ‘The War You Don't See,’ in which I interviewed distinguished journalists in America and Britain: reporters such as Dan Rather of CBS, Rageh Omar of the BBC, David Rose of the Observer.
All of them said that had journalists and broadcasters done their job and questioned the propaganda that Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction; had the lies of George W. Bush and Tony Blair not been amplified and echoed by journalists, the 2003 invasion of Iraq might not have happened, and hundreds of thousands of men, women and children would be alive today.
The propaganda laying the ground for a war against Russia and/or China is no different in principle. To my knowledge, no journalist in the Western "mainstream" – a Dan Rather equivalent, say – asks why China is building airstrips in the South China Sea.
The answer ought to be glaringly obvious. The United States is encircling China with a network of bases, with ballistic missiles, battle groups, nuclear-armed bombers.
This lethal arc extends from Australia to the islands of the Pacific, the Marianas and the Marshalls and Guam, to the Philippines, Thailand, Okinawa, Korea and across Eurasia to Afghanistan and India. America has hung a noose around the neck of China. This is not news. Silence by media; war by media.
In 2015, in high secrecy, the US and Australia staged the biggest single air-sea military exercise in recent history, known as Talisman Sabre. Its aim was to rehearse an Air-Sea Battle Plan, blocking sea lanes – such as the Straits of Malacca and the Lombok Straits – that cut off China’s access to oil, gas and other vital raw materials from the Middle East and Africa.
In the circus known as the American presidential campaign, Donald Trump is being presented as a lunatic, a fascist. He is certainly odious; but he is also a media hate figure. That alone should arouse our scepticism.
Trump's views on migration are grotesque, but no more grotesque than those of David Cameron. It is not Trump who is the Great Deporter from the United States, but the Nobel Peace Prize winner, Barack Obama.
According to one prodigious liberal commentator, Trump is "unleashing the dark forces of violence" in the United States. Unleashing them?
This is the country where toddlers shoot their mothers and the police wage a murderous war against black Americans. This is the country that has attacked and sought to overthrow more than 50 governments, many of them democracies, and bombed from Asia to the Middle East, causing the deaths and dispossession of millions of people.
No country can equal this systemic record of violence. Most of America's wars (almost all of them against defenceless countries) have been launched not by Republican presidents but by liberal Democrats: Truman, Kennedy, Johnson, Carter, Clinton, Obama.
In 1947, a series of National Security Council directives described the paramount aim of American foreign policy as "a world substantially made over in [America's] own image." The ideology was messianic Americanism. We were all Americans. Or else. Heretics would be converted, subverted, bribed, smeared or crushed.
Donald Trump is a symptom of this, but he is also a maverick. He says the invasion of Iraq was a crime; he doesn't want to go to war with Russia and China. The danger to the rest of us is not Trump, but Hillary Clinton. She is no maverick. She embodies the resilience and violence of a system whose vaunted "exceptionalism" is totalitarian with an occasional liberal face.
As presidential election day draws near, Clinton will be hailed as the first female president, regardless of her crimes and lies – just as Barack Obama was lauded as the first black president and liberals swallowed his nonsense about "hope." And the drool goes on.
Described by the Guardian columnist Owen Jones as "funny, charming, with a coolness that eludes practically every other politician,” Obama the other day sent drones to slaughter 150 people in Somalia. He kills people usually on Tuesdays, according to the New York Times, when he is handed a list of candidates for death by drone. So cool.
In the 2008 presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton threatened to "totally obliterate" Iran with nuclear weapons. As Secretary of State under Obama, she participated in the overthrow of the democratic government of Honduras. Her contribution to the destruction of Libya in 2011 was almost gleeful. When the Libyan leader, Colonel Gaddafi, was publicly sodomised with a knife – a murder made possible by American logistics – Clinton gloated over his death: "We came, we saw, he died."
One of Clinton's closest allies is Madeleine Albright, the former secretary of State, who has attacked young women for not supporting "Hillary." This is the same Madeleine Albright who infamously celebrated on TV the death of half a million Iraqi children as "worth it".
Among Clinton's biggest backers are the Israel lobby and the arms companies that fuel the violence in the Middle East. She and her husband have received a fortune from Wall Street. And yet, she is about to be ordained the women's candidate, to see off the evil Trump, the official demon. Her supporters include distinguished feminists: the likes of Gloria Steinem in the US and Anne Summers in Australia.
A generation ago, a post-modern cult now known as "identity politics" stopped many intelligent, liberal-minded people examining the causes and individuals they supported, such as the fakery of Obama and Clinton; such as bogus progressive movements like Syriza in Greece, which betrayed the people of that country and allied with their enemies.
Self-absorption, a kind of "me-ism", became the new zeitgeist in privileged western societies and signaled the demise of great collective movements against war, social injustice, inequality, racism and sexism.
Today, the long sleep may be over. The young are stirring again. Gradually. The thousands in Britain who supported Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader are part of this awakening – as are those who rallied to support Senator Bernie Sanders.
In Britain last week, Jeremy Corbyn's closest ally, his shadow treasurer John McDonnell, committed a Labour government to pay off the debts of piratical banks and, in effect, to continue so-called austerity.
In the US, Bernie Sanders has promised to support Clinton if or when she's nominated. He, too, has voted for America's use of violence against countries when he thinks it is "right." He says Obama has done "a great job."
In Australia, there is a kind of mortuary politics, in which tedious parliamentary games are played out in the media while refugees and Indigenous people are persecuted and inequality grows, along with the danger of war. The government of Malcolm Turnbull has just announced a so-called defence budget of $195 billion that is a drive to war. There was no debate. Silence.
What has happened to the great tradition of popular direct action, unfettered to parties? Where is the courage, imagination and commitment required to begin the long journey to a better, just and peaceful world? Where are the dissidents in art, film, the theatre, literature?
Where are those who will shatter the silence? Or do we wait until the first nuclear missile is fired?
WARNING OF THE COMING OF WORLD WAR III
(FROM BRIGADIER GENERAL RETIRED, NOW RESIDING OUTSIDE OF THE USA )
Please put this in the “I need to get this off my chest” category. I know you know most (if not all) of this, but I believe, as a somewhat recently retired US Army General, I have an obligation to put this out there.
We have all heard it said that generals are always fighting the last war. I did not find that true during my military career. In fact, I found the opposite. There were many exceptionally smart men and women who strained to look through fog, into the future, in anticipation of what would come next. The problem is, this is extremely difficult to do.
Do you think post-World War II (and to some extent post-Korean War) planners could have envisioned the Viet Nam War?
Do you think the post-Vietnam planners could have foreseen kicking in doors in Afghanistan and Iraq?
What do you think post Afghanistan/Iraq planners are envisioning next?
As you know, the Pentagon has war plans for multiple contingencies….along with concomitant branches and sequels. Some predict total war, but those plans rarely see the public eye. With today’s technologies and weaponry, it is too difficult to fathom that any nation would go down this path. Besides, anyone in a position of power, who publicly predicted such a war--- and urged immediate preparation-- would likely see his/her career end rather quickly.
Yet sadly, history would indicate total war is the most likely next outcome.
Those who fought the last total war, (World War II) have mostly passed. Those who remain have seen their voices grow dim. We are now in the fourth generation from World War II…and all current US generations have come to believe the following about war:
· Wars are protracted affairs that can last a decade or more.
· Wars are low-level conflicts.
· Wars do not affect the general populace of the US. (We bomb others, they don’t bomb us.)
· Only a few are needed to prosecute a war. (Currently, less than one half of one percent of our population have served in the military.)
· War is good for economy.
· The status quo is maintained regardless of war’s outcome.
· God is on our side.
If history is any guide, all of the above beliefs will be shattered during the next war.
Steve, there are historical “war cycles.” Not every war can be total (WW II), or a stand-off (Korea), or swiftly-victorious-but-without change (Desert Storm), or indecisive (Vietnam/Iraq/Afghanistan). There is a rhyme and rhythm to human conflict and we are on course for total war. Strauss and Howe do an excellent job of explaining such cycles in their 1997 classic book, The Fourth Turning.
With that said, I believe the next war will:
· Last only 2-3 weeks.
· Be a high-level conflict where more people will die than in all previous wars combined.
· See the general US population targeted (and stunned) at the devastation.
· Affect everyone—not just those in uniform.
· Decimate the economy. Those not killed directly will struggle to survive post-hostilities.
· Destroy the status quo and usher in a new order.
· Make manifest that God is no longer on our side. We chose to abandon Him, so He honored our free will.
The reality is, Americans have not fared well at the beginning of most wars. We get caught off-guard, stumble, and suffer casualties we should not suffer. Our strength is in our ability to recover and adapt. As a people---and as a military—we have proven ourselves able to adjust “on the fly” and overcome overwhelming odds.
This trait is not lost on our enemies. Their solution? Win before we can adjust. Attack so hard and so fast, we cannot get up. The Japanese had this idea at Pearl Harbor, but did not have the means to execute the strategy. Today’s weapons/technology allow for such a strategy to be successful.
The difficulty for most American leaders is that they have been brought up to believe there is a linear path to things such as civilization’s progress, economic growth, cultural achievement, technological advancement, military improvement, and so on. Yet, this has never been the case. Things cycle. The ancients knew this. Our founding fathers knew this.
Linear thinking is a relatively new mindset…fueled and reinforced in large part by the industrial and technological revolutions. And, while the material achievements have been amazing, and seemingly straight up, the human condition has not changed. Like everything in nature, human behavior cycles.
(As an aside, the Romans also believed technological advances were linear and destined to grow to the sky. Yet, after the Empire fell, Europe forgot how to make concrete for over 700 years. When Rome fell, knowledge was lost in the areas of health care, architecture, hygiene, plumbing, engineering, etc. This knowledge was not recovered until centuries later. Thus, even technology cycles, if you look back far enough.)
The point is, among other things, industrial and technological advances have reinforced a false belief-system that past is prologue….despite overwhelming historical evidence to the contrary. The result is, we are careening down a destructive path that many Americans can “feel”, but cannot articulate.
This is not intended as fear mongering…there is plenty of non-substantiated nonsense out there. As hard as this is to write, however, there is substantial evidence to indicate total war is on the horizon. I believe future historians will look back and say, “How could they have not seen the path they were on?”
Your website has offered many solutions of what people should do. Your recent prepper articles have been outstanding. Of course, the best way to live through total war is to not participate. Given this, what can the average American do?
· Leave the battlefield, which in total war, is the entire nation. Go south of the equator.
· If you can’t leave the country, leave the urban areas.
· Prepare as best you can for the war and its aftermath.
· Get right with God.
· Be attuned to the promptings of the Holy Spirit. The early Christians were told via visions, dreams, & prophets to flee before the Romans sacked the city in 70 AD.
There is another issue. Your readers are going to have to make a judgment call as to whether the next war is a “God’s judgment war”. If you determine in the affirmative, then your bravery, good intentions, self-sacrifice, and noble deeds will be in vain. You will not be fighting a foreign foe. You will be fighting His will. You will lose. And please, do not fall into the trap that “at least we are better than the other guys”. The Egyptians, Assyrians, and Babylonians were not saints, yet God used them to judge ancient Israel and Judah.
Thankfully Steve, you get it…and have gotten it for a long time. You are trying to save lives, both in the physical and the eternal. I am merely adding my voice to yours. I hope this small contribution will convince those who are on the fence to recognize the current situation and take appropriate action.
Is there hope? Of course…but it would require repentance and revival on scale we have not seen for a long time in the US. Fast and pray.

Russian Prime Minister Warns There Will Be a “Permanent World War” if Saudis Invade Syria
“It’s a joke. We couldn’t wish [for] more than that. If they can do it, then let them do it — but talking militarily, this is not easy for a country already facing defeat in another war, in Yemen, where after almost one year they have failed in achieving any real victory.”
That’s what one source in the Iranian military had to say about reports that Saudi Arabia is preparing to send ground troops into Syria.
If you frequent these pages you know why Riyadh (and Ankara for that matter) is considering the ground option. The effort to oust Bashar al-Assad and the Alawite government was going reasonably well right up until September. Sure, the conflict was dragging into its fifth year, but Assad’s army was on the ropes and absent a miracle, it seemed likely that his government would fall.
As it turns out, Assad did indeed get a miracle from above although instead of divine intervention it was Russian airstrikes which commenced from Latakia starting on September 30. Contrary to The White House’s prediction that Putin would find himself in a “quagmire,” Russia and Hezbollah have rolled up the opposition and are preparing to recapture Aleppo, the country’s largest city and a major commercial hub. If that happens, the rebellion is over.
That would be a disaster to the rebels’ Sunni benefactors as it would mean Iran will preserve the Shiite crescent and its supply lines to Hezbollah. It would also give Tehran bragging rights in the bitter ideological war with Riyadh. Simply put, that’s unacceptable for the Saudis and so, it’s time to call upon the ground troops.
But this isn’t Yemen where the Iranians are fighting via proxies. If the Saudis start shooting at the IRGC or at Hezbollah in Syria it’s just as likely as not that the two countries will go to war and just like that, you’d have the beginning of World War III.
Don’t believe us? Just ask Russian PM Dmitry Medvedev.
“If Arab forces entered the Syrian war they could spark a new world war,” Medvedev warned on Thursday. “Ground offensives usually lead to wars becoming permanent”. Here’s what else he told Handelsblatt:
“The Americans and our Arabic partners must think hard about this: do they want a permanent war?”
“Do they really think they would win such a war very quickly? That’s impossible, especially in the Arabic world. There everyone is fighting against everyone… everything is far more complicated. It could take years or decades.”
“Why is that necessary? All sides must be forced to the negotiating table instead of sparking a new world war.”
Yes, “all sides must come to the negotiating table.” Of course that’s easy for Medvedev to say. After all, it’s a lot easier to sit at the table when you’ve already won and are negotiating from a position of strength.
That is, there won’t be anything left to negotiate in a couple of weeks if things keep going like they’re going. What Moscow pretty clearly wants to do is crush the opposition in Aleppo and then discuss how to proceed with some kind of political “agreement” that will prevent whatever remains of the rebels from launching a prolonged war of attrition involving periodic attacks on government forces.
In any event, don’t say Russia didn’t warn everyone when the Saudis and the Turks end up setting the world on the road to a global conflict. Below, find excerpts from an interview The Atlantic conducted with Andrew Tabler of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.
Kathy Gilsinan: I wanted to start with what the significance of Aleppo has been to the Syrian uprising up to this point.
Andrew Tabler: Aleppo is Syria’s largest city. It’s the commercial hub. It is extremely important, particularly to the opposition, because Aleppo, along with the other northwestern cities, have been some of the strongest opponents to the Assad regime historically. I think the decision in 2012 to take [the city] was one of the first real major offensives of the armed opposition in Syria. And they hoped that by denying the regime Aleppo, it would set up an alternative capital and allow for a process where the Assad regime’s power was whittled away. Since that time, it has instead been one of the most bombed, barrel-bombed, and decimated parts of Syria, and now is much more like Dresden than anything else.
Gilsinan: If Aleppo falls, walk me through what happens next. First, how would it change the balance of power, within the civil war, between the rebels and the regime?
Tabler: I think it would cement the regime’s hold on “essential Syria”—western Syria, perhaps with the exception of Idlib province [to] the south [of Aleppo]. But basically you would have the regime presence from Aleppo the whole way down to Hama, Homs, and Damascus, and that’s the spine of the country, and that’s what concerns the regime and the Iranians in particular. It would then allow them to free up forces, potentially, to go on the offensive elsewhere, directly into Idlib province, most likely, and then eventually into the south. Then after that they could turn their attention finally to ISIS.
Gilsinan: And then what happens to the regional balance of power within that war?
Tabler: It would be a tremendous loss for the U.S. and its traditional allies: Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Jordan. It’s already been extremely costly for most of those allies, but it would be a defeat [in the face of] the Russian-Iranian intervention in Syria. This would also be a huge loss for the United States vis-à-vis Russia in its Middle East policy, certainly. And because of the flow of refugees as a result of this, if they go northward to Europe, then you would see a migrant crisis in Europe that could lead to far-right governments coming to power which are much more friendly to Russia than they are to the United States. I think that is likely to happen.
Gilsinan: So it changes the entire orientation, not just of the Middle East, but of Europe as well.
Tabler: It will soften up American power in Europe, yeah. And put into jeopardy a lot of the advances in the NATO-accession countries, which are adjacent to Russia, as well.

Russian Troops Put On High Alert - World War 3 Warning Goes Out: 'The Bloodshed Will Drag On Until Every Semblance Of Civilization Is Destroyed'
By Stefan Stanford - All News Pipeline - Live Free Or Die
"Without negotiations, the bloodshed will drag on until the last city is reduced to rubble and virtually every home, every form of infrastructure, and every semblance of civilization is destroyed" John Kerry on Syria.
See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins. Isaiah 17
With US Secretary of State John Kerry now reportedly 'happy' that Saudi Arabia will be deploying its 'elite' soldiers to Syria as it would allegedly give the US 'a good opportunity to curb Russian influence in the area', Russia has put its military on high alert as shared in the 1st video below from Gary Franchi and the Next News Network.
Such a move by Saudi Arabia would be seen by Syria as a move of aggression against Syria and Syrian foreign minister Walid al-Moallem recently stated that the same 'elite' Saudi soldiers would return to Saudi Arabia only in coffins.
As the Saudis are now showing their support for several different terrorist groups in Syria with the US and particularly president Barack Obama seemingly giving full support to ISIS, are we nearing the point where Hillary Clinton's and Mr. Obama's support of terrorists may end up costing the lives of millions of innocent Americans? Do Obama and Clinton even WANT TO defeat the ISIS terrorists who are threatening to kill us? Why is this administration supporting the same terrorists in Syria and the Middle East who want to kill us added on to the fact that it could lead to war with Russia? From WND.:
In another wide-ranging interview with talk-radio host Michael Savage, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump suggested President Obama might not have a desire to defeat the Islamic jihadist group ISIS, and the real-estate billionaire shied away from declaring he would win the New Hampshire primary Tuesday.
Trump repeated his observation that President Obama refuses to identify the enemy as “radical Islamic terrorism,” insisting ISIS and other groups have nothing to do with Islam.
“It’s radical Islamic terrorism, and we have a president who won’t even use the words,” he said. “If you don’t use the words, you’re never going to get rid of the problem."
“Maybe he doesn’t want to get rid of the
problem,” Trump said. “I don’t know exactly what’s going on.”
Why would the president of our nation NOT want to 'label and defeat' those who are threatening to kill us? Is all of this more posturing with the intent of getting the US involved in a hugely destructive war since the economy has failed and the bottom getting ready to drop out? Why would Obama and Clinton continue to support the ISIS terrorists who want to kill us when even our own Director of the US Defense Intelligence Agency is warning the world to expect increased ISIS terror attacks in 2016?
As Trump stated, "maybe Obama (and Clinton) don't want to get rid of the problem"; however, when we consider that 'the problem' is a group of radicals who want to kill us and destroy our way of life, we wonder how it is that Mrs. Clinton is still a serious candidate for the office of president in America and how is it that Mr. Obama's entire administration hasn't been charged with treason for supporting terrorism? From Sputnik News.:
"In fact, the Saudis who support several terrorist groups
in Syria together with the US are especially interested to overthrow President Assad. The Americans, in turn, want to prevent Russians from playing the main part in the reorganization
With 'ultimate neocon' Hillary Clinton now completely falling apart at the seams in New Hampshire and nationally and the neocons having lost complete control of the Republican party, we have to ask again, will we even have a general election in November 2016 or will the globalists who have every reason to want to see America fail pull off a World war or massive false flag or real attack upon America that drives the final stake through our Republic's heart?
Gary Franchi takes a look at the news of Russia putting their troops on high alert in the 1st video while the 2nd video below from Prophetic signs gives us a compilation of recent mainstream news media reports that help to show that Syria is becoming the likely battleground for World War 3. Is war what happens when all else fails? Why is it that so few Christian refugees are being admitted to America from Syria and the war-torn Middle East as asked in the final video below from TRUNEWS? Are Americans being set up for a huge fall?
Have the totally evil, ........ neocon warmongers who control the US government taught Putin that war is inevitable?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9QxWYIAtCMU#action=share
This should be "the clincher" as far as understanding recent modern history. Of course it goes back much further than this, but humanity's attention span is quite short so perhaps this will suffice.
Via theinternationalforecaster.com, James Corbett
The meme has already been floated: “Paris changes everything” according to the terrorists in government who stand to benefit from the changes that the Paris terror attacks are bringing about.
But is that so? Has Paris really “changed everything?”
Well, let’s cast our mind back to those heady days of November 12, 2015, shall we? How does the pre-Friday the 13th world compare to the world of today?
Before the attacks, the EU could chide France for missing its budget deficit goals. After the attacks, the EU can try to chide them, but France can swat those concerns aside by invoking the EU’s own protective security clause.
Before the attacks, the French could protest a bill granting sweeping new surveillance powers to the intelligence services. After the attacks, the government can grant the police special emergency powers and amend the constitution to make those emergency powers permanent with widespread popular support.
Before the attacks, the British people could protest their government’s own sweeping, Orwellian surveillance bill. After the attacks, Prime Minister David Cameron can suggest fast-tracking the bill to ‘protect the public’ from the terrorists.
Before the attacks, the British government could propose a drastic £1.9 billion cut to the police budget. After the attacks, those cuts are likely to be drastically scaled back.
Before the attacks, the largest political bloc in the EU Parliament could propose an EU army but no one would take them seriously. After the attacks, the European Commission president can call for an EU army and everyone is taking him seriously.
In the wake of the attacks Donald Trump can promise a total surveillance state under his reign and Hillary Clinton can admit that she’s owned by Wall Street because of 9/11, but before the attacks…well, OK, some things never change.
But you get the picture. The point is a simple one to understand: spectacular acts of violence can cause the politically unthinkable to become the politically popular.
Let me point out that the UN’s own preferred definition of “terrorism” is:
“Criminal acts intended or calculated to provoke a state of terror in the general public, a group of persons or particular persons for political purposes”
Well in the wake of events like the Paris attacks we certainly do have a general public that has been provoked into a state of terror. But whose political purposes does this terror serve, exactly? The Islamic State, who is now likely to be bombed off the face of the planet (and Assad along with them, of course), or the politicians pushing for increased budgets, increased surveillance powers, encryption back doors, new regional armies and the like? If the answer is that the terror serves the politicians, then doesn’t that make the politicians the terrorists by definition?
This is not a new observation by any means. It stretches back decades if not centuries. H.L Mencken observed in 1918 that “the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.”
Winston Chruchill is supposed to have said: “Never let a good crisis go to waste.” Whether he said it or not, former Obama chief-of-staff and current Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel did say it, and we have that on camera.
With the revelation of the NATO-sponsored Gladio terror campaign in Europe after WWII, the world was introduced to a key concept: the strategy of tension. This referred to the act of whipping the public into hysteria and fear (i.e. terrorizing them) and directing their outrage against a political enemy. In the Gladio context, bombings, shootings and other acts of carnage were committed by special forces and blamed on political enemies in order to demonize them in the public’s eye.
In recent years we have learned that the Gladio campaign never really went away, only morphed. Now instead of paramilitary forces in Europe the strategy of tension is maintained by Islamic radicals carefully shepherded, controlled and manipulated by NATO operatives. This “Gladio B” and its implementation in the mid-1990s just happens to correspond with the rise of the new Global War on Terror after the collapse of the Soviet Union (and a concomitant rise in military budgets to Cold War levels).
The strategy is remarkably simple. Provoke an attack, stage an attack, allow an attack to happen or simply capitalize on a spontaneous attack. Use the public’s own outrage to push through draconian new legislation, all the while pretending to be the savior. And watch the public rally around the flag, begging to give you more power to keep them safe.
This is not a new phenomenon. This is not a surprising phenomenon. It is not an unpredictable phenomenon. In fact, I have talked about this at great length over the history of The Corbett Report and many thousands of others have been talking about it for much longer. But it needs to be confronted again, now, while the public is still caught in the grip of their terror hysteria. Spectacular terrorist incidents are the magician’s wand of the would-be controllers of society; they distract the public while the real action happens somewhere else.
So how do we deal with this? We break the wand of terror hysteria right in front of the audience’s face. We show the bird up the sleeve. We reveal the assistant’s twin hiding in the sawed-through box. We expose the false bottom on the cup. We show the trick for what it is, and we snap the audience out of their spell.
One way or another, the terrorists are those who seek to increase their own power while the country recoils in grief and outrage. One way or another, the governments themselves are terrorizing their own public.
Some people will actively resist this revelation, but that is their problem to deal with. For those of us who know the truth, it is up to us to present it to others. And now is the time to do it.
WAR WITH RUSSIA TO DEFEND ISIS
Hey, remember back in those “good ol’ days” we called the Cold War when we thought World War Three would begin over some penny-ante border skirmish in Europe? You know, a Soviet plane gets close to the border, we panic, it gets shot down. Then the Soviets decide to shoot down the next plane that tries that again. Then it escalates from there. Well, folks, have a look at this.
There. Putin just placed some long-range surface-to-air missiles in Syria. The next Turkish F-16 pilot to play Top Gun is going to get a hotfoot he’ll never forget. Ok, but let’s get back to the Cold War for a second. Can anyone imagine it being 1983 and Reagan giving the okey-dokey to shoot down a Soviet aircraft? Of course not. Not even Reagan was that bonkers. If Turkey had said they were going to do that, they’d have been told in no uncertain terms: Absolutely not. We’d have never allowed a NATO nation to threaten such a thing, much less carry out that threat. They’d have been told to follow the protocols which are to send up planes and escort the aircraft away. That’s what NATO has been doing since they provoked the Russians into resuming Bear bomber excursions close to NATO airspace. They escort the planes away. They don’t shoot them down, no matter how many bloodthirsty whack-jobs were calling for it.
Also, the surviving crewman of the shot-down Russian plane has been recovered. Guess where? Syria! Gee, how’d that happen? If the Russian plane was in Turkey, how comes the Turks didn’t capture the guy? And since the pilot was killed by ground fire coming from al-Qaida, there are only two possibilities there. One, the plane was in Syria, which we can pretty much say is a given. Or, two, the plane was in Turkey and al-Qaida is getting safe haven in Turkey. So, ok, Turkey, which one was it? Was the plane in Syria when your F-16s ambushed it? Or are you harboring al-Qaida?
I bet NATO nations that want to stay out of this are crapping enough bricks to build a pyramid at this point. I hear tell that Turkish F-16s cross into Syria with some regularity. Sooner or later, one will get bagged by a Russian SAM crew. Or the next F-16 to shadow a Russian plane is going to get a supersonic parting gift. “Vanna, tell our contestant what he’s won!” “He’s won a surface-to-air missile and a free trip by parachute into the arms of his air rescue crew!” Turkey goes whining to NATO and demands assistance. There, we’re in World War Three. I tend to think this entire thing has been staged and Turkey was coached in it by those who want to get us into a war by any means necessary. I tend to think that actor is the Pentagon. They probably think the President and Congress aren’t getting us into a war fast enough.
Here’s what’s obviously going down over there. Turkey is, and always has been, supporting al-Qaida and ISIS. Both of them are covertly supported by the United States which is why a year-plus-change-you-can-believe-in’s worth of airstrikes haven’t even cost ISIS a magazine subscription. ISIS and al-Qaida have been using Turkey as a safe haven and that’s the starting point of the ISIS version of the Ho Chi Minh Trail. How come ISIS keeps getting resupply? Because Turkey is where the supply depot is. So, ok, ISIS ends up nuttier than a fruitcake but we still need them to get rid of Assad, so we just kick the can down the road, hoping an international coalition will get rid of ISIS later. But here came the Russians and no one thought that would happen. And it might not have if NATO and the U.S. had minded their own business in Ukraine. So Putin moved up his pieces on the board. But now here was the chance to get the war we wanted to start in Ukraine started in Syria and kill two birds with one stone. So to speak. Hence, Turkey was not challenged and warned off by the U.S. when they said they were going to shoot down Russian planes. In fact, that’s exactly what the Pentagon needed. And now it’s happened.
See, the Pentagon thinks it can win a war with Russia. Seriously. They do. Because even if it goes nuclear, as long as we wipe them out and we’ve got a handful of bureaucrats and generals alive in their fuehrerbunkers, we won! Hooray! Aren’t you all excited and proud to be an American right now? Gee, it’s swell to know we didn’t scrap all those nuclear weapons after the Cold War. We scrapped the air raid sirens so, hey, if you’re in the shower you might not even know the world is going to end before you’re done washing your hair. Don’t worry about drying it, the heat flash will do that for you.
Don’t you just love it? I can’t see any other conclusion that can be arrived at except that we’re about to risk a war with Russia over al-Qaida. Makes you wonder if al-Qaida ever was formally off the CIA payroll
The Russian jet pilot rescued by special forces from
a forest in northern Syria has vowed to continue
flying missions over the country as 'payback' for his
Captain Konstantin Murakhtin, who was evacuated from rebel-held territory after his plane was downed, has also claimed the pilots were given no warning they were violating Turkish airspace.
His co-pilot, Lieutenant Colonel Oleg Peshkov, was killed by local rebels after their plane was shot down by the Turkish military on Tuesday.
And despite the international community's best efforts to reduce tensions, President Vladimir Putin has deployed his feared S-400 battalions to Latakia, Syria, in response.
Military analysts said the anti-aircraft system – with a missile range of 250miles – was a ‘formidable potential threat’ to coalition aircraft flying over Syria, Iraq, Turkey and even as far as Cyprus, where RAF jets are stationed.
It comes as Turkey released a statement claiming it had no idea the jet it downed was Russian.
Captain Konstantin Murakhtin was one of the two pilots of the Russian fighter jet shot down by Turkish F16 pilots near the Syrian border on Tuesday - he has now vowed to continue flying missions
Both Captain Murakhtin (left) and Lieutenant Colonel Oleg Peshkov (right) parachuted out of the jet, but only Captain Murakhtin survived, while his co-pilot was shot and killed by Syrian rebel forces
Captain Murakhtin is appealing to his commanders to allow him to remain in Syria.
He said: ‘I can’t wait to return [to flying] … I have a debt to repay to the commander.’ The airman told Russian TV that he wanted to keep flying missions from the base to ‘pay them back for my commander’.
He also flatly denied there were any warnings from Turkish F16 pilots that his plane was about to be shot out of the sky.
This is not hyperbole: A state of war now exists between Russia and her allies and the United States and her allies.
If there is anyone left alive to write history in a decade, today’s shoot down of a Russian fighter jet could very well be viewed as the trigger event which set off World War III.
Russian Su-24 Fighter Jet Shot Down Over Syrian Airspace
In a potential Archduke Francis Ferdinand moment, Turkey is admitting to shooting down a Russian fighter plane a few hours ago.
Russian governmental officials are claiming that Russia did not violate Turkish airspace and has mission data to prove this is the case. Conversely, RT is claiming that it’s confirmed that the plane came down in Syrian territory. If the Russians are correct, and the evidence appears to be on their side, then NATO just started World War III.
Regardless of how this incident is spun, the unmistakble fact is that Turkey, a member of NATO, intentionally shot down a Russian fighter jet involved in combat operations against ISIS terrorists is absolute proof that Turkey is coordinating with ISIS forces on the ground, but it is also providing air defense services ISIS on the ground. This event signals clear division of forces operating in Syria where now a state of war exists between Russia and her allies and the United States and her allies.
At this point, it is important to note that the conflicts are still between the proxy forces of both Russia and the United States. However, logic would dictate that it is merely a matter of time until these “confrontations” begin to involve US forces and the Russian military. When that day comes, the events will quickly spill out of control.
Before the implications are unraveled in this article, it is important to put the facts into perspective with regard to common perceptions coming out of the Middle East and Russia. Below are two tweets which immediately frame the issue that the shoot down of the Russian plane was an act of NATO aggression towards Russia. I would remind the reader that I have taken a hard line against Putin who is a thug and a murderer. However, in this instance, the United States, through her proxy forces in Turkey that actively supports ISIS, just committed a bold-faced act of war.
This is the manner in which the Russian media is portraying this event. And I have concluded, that their position is the closest to the truth of all the accounts that are beginning to surface.
The events connected to this incident are spinning out of control. It has been announced that Putin will be addressing the world today. Please note, that he did not offer a public statement when the Russian airliner was shot down.
If one is naive and ignorant enough to believe that the Syrian conflict has not evolved into a war between Russia and the United States, then you might want to review your World War II history and review the Flying Tigers opposition to Japanese imperialism in China, prior to December 7, 1941. This is exactly what we are witnessing in Syria, only on a larger and more significant stage.
I predict what will be missing in the analyses of this event will be the absence of a solid conceptual framework from which to properly view the context of this event.
It is important to note that the entire conflict over Syria was initiated by Russia, Iran and Syria when it was first discovered that Iran and Syria were selling oil for gold instead of using Federal Reserve Notes (i.e. the dollar which became known as the Petrodollar). Very quickly, Russia was joined in their undermining of the Petrodollar by China, India, Brazil and South Africa (i.e. the BRICS).
In response, the US tried to overthrow Assad, the leader of Syria by supplying Syrian rebels with weapons and CIA support. As this endeavor slowed to a crawl, the CIA, according to former Army Special Operations Officer, Scott Bennett, began to supply ISIS with sophisticated weapons and on the ground training.
Anyone who ever doubted Scott Bennett’s revelation of the inseparable relationship between ISIS and the CIA is not paying attention. As already revealed in this article, NATO member Turkey has just shot down a Russian fighter plane engaged in combat operations against the US backed ISIS. I have learned a great deal about the personality of Putin in the last several years. He is at the end of his rope. Expect Russia to draw a line in the sand.
Putin has already called out the United States for supporting ISIS. Expect Putin to commence military operations against ISIS forces operating within the territorial boundaries of Turkey. This would denote a Russian attack upon NATO and the world will see its prospects for peace reach the proverbial point of no return.
It is not a matter of if, but when World War III goes hot. The forces are aligned. I would just caution the readers about one thing. I would not go waving my flag because the MSM will soon tell you to do so. Instead, I would ask you to recall what Einstein said about World War III.
US Ground Troops In Syria Is “Illegal, Big Mistake”, Russia Warns Obama Of “Unpredictable Consequences”
Via zerohedge.com 30/10/15
On Tuesday, Defense Secretary Ash Carter told the Senate Armed Services Committee that the US would no longer hesitate to engage in “direct action on the ground” in Iraq and Syria.
The change in rhetoric (and apparent shift in strategy) comes just days after the US seemingly prepared the public for what might be coming by releasing helmet cam footage of what Washington says was a raid on an ISIS prison by Delta Force (accompanied by the Peshmerga). 70 prisoners were allegedly freed although not before the US suffered its first combat death in Iraq since 2011.
The timing of the video is suspect, to say the least. It came just days after Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joe Dunford visited Iraqi PM Haider al-Abadi in an effort to dissuade Baghdad from requesting Russian airstrikes on ISIS targets. In short, it appears as though Washington is trying to simultaneously, i) prove to Mid-East governments that the US can still be effective in the fight against terrorism even as questions remain about ulterior motives and even as Russia racks up gains in Syria, and ii) prepare the public for the possibility that America is about to put boots on the ground in Iraq and Syria. Here’s more from WSJ on Washington’s new “strategy”:
The White House is seriously considering deploying a small squadron of Apache attack helicopters to Iraq as part of a package of new “H programs to counter Islamic State, according to U.S. officials.
The move could ultimately require the deployment of hundreds more U.S. service members to Iraq. Among other proposals, U.S. officials said some in the military recommend openly deploying a small number of forces on the ground in Syria, embedded among moderate rebels or Kurdish forces there, for the first time.
Pressure is mounting on the regime to change course. Recent Russian intervention in Syria on the side of the regime, and the threat of Moscow intervening in Iraq next, has spurred the U.S. to step up its role, defense officials acknowledge.
Pentagon officials have recommended to the White House that the U.S. deploy as many as eight Apache helicopters and their crews to Iraq. The helicopters, known for their targeting prowess, could work in conjunction with as many as two dozen ground spotters who would embed with local ground forces to call in strikes against Islamic State targets.
Another proposal, which is less likely, would insert small numbers of combat advisers on the front lines with Iraqi forces and possibly with moderate rebels inside Syria. Pentagon officials are also likely to enhance Iraqi intelligence capabilities, possibly through a group on the ground that would serve as a single point of coordination between the U.S. and Iraq, a senior military official said.
Last week, the defense chief said Americans should expect more raids like the joint U.S.-Kurdish operation that took place in the town of Hawija, Iraq, in which 70 prisoners were freed and an American was killed in action, the first since 2011. The U.S. also recently dropped 50 tons of ammunition to an umbrella group of moderate rebel forces inside Syria now known as the Syria-Arab Coalition, or SAC, as part of a renewed effort to strengthen local forces.
Pentagon and White House officials indicated the deployment of Apache helicopters was being given the most serious consideration, and therefore the most likely step.
U.S. officials say momentum is building within the administration to ramp up those efforts even more, capitalizing on the strength of Kurdish and other Iraqi forces.
“I believe we will have an opportunity to reinforce Iraqi success in the days ahead,” Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joe Dunford told Senate lawmakers at a hearing on Tuesday.
Alright, so let’s see if we can untangle this. Washington intends to send in the Apaches to bolster Iraqi forces both Peshmerga and otherwise. Or at least that’s what it sounds like. The Pentagon is also considering the placement of American ground troops with “moderate” rebels and with the YPG in Syria.
As we’ve detailed extensively (and this isn’t exactly a secret), Iran effectively runs the Iraqi military via its various Shiite militia proxy armies. That’s not an exaggeration. As Reuters reported earlier this month, “the Fifth Iraqi Army Division now reports to the militias’ chain of command, not to the military’s, according to several U.S. and coalition military officials.” So when the Apaches and their crews aren’t supporting the Kurds, they’ll be openly supporting Iran-backed fighters.
Only that isn’t at all consistent with placing US ground troops with Syria’s “moderate rebels” like the Free Syrian Army because after all, they’re fighting the very same Iran-backed Shiite militias. So the US would be bolstering the militiamen in Iraq with Apache gunship support and then firing on those exact same militiamen across the border in Syria in support of the “moderate” rebels battling to oust the Assad regime.
It’s beyond absurd.
And then of course there’s the whole Kurd/Turkey problem. The US is, i) fighting alongside the Peshmerga in Iraq and intends to support them going forward with Apache helicopters, ii) paradropping guns and ammo to the YPG in Syria (as part of a ridiculous ruse that involves the largely made-up SAC mentioned above by WSJ), and now iii) may even send in ground troops to fight with the YPG. But Turkey just bombed the YPG yesterday. Additionally, the US is flying sorties from Incirlik which sets up the insanely ridiculous possibility that if the US embeds troops with the Syrian Kurds, US jets could be taking off from the same base as Turkish warplanes only the US warplanes would be supporting the YPG while Turkish warplanes bomb them.
So, yeah. This is should all go swimmingly.
Finally, there’s the possibility that if the US puts boots on the ground in Syria in support of the “moderate” rebels, those troops will be killed by Russia and Iran (which Dunford said on Tuesday likely has “more than 1,000 [soldiers] on the ground in Iraq [and] something less than 2,000 in Syria”), and with that, we close with several comments from Chairman of the Russian Upper House committee for foreign affairs, Konstantin Kosachev (via RT) and a few images:
Commenting on the potential involvement of US ground troops against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, Kosachev once again highlighted that, when it comes to Syria, the US-led anti-ISIS campaign is already violating international law. Potential troops on the ground, Kosachev believes, will further violate international regulations
“Any operations – air based operations, ground based operations – in Syria by American forces will be illegal,”Kosachev told RT, explaining that Washington has not been invited by Damascus to take part in military operation in a sovereign country.
“They will get trapped, they will get involved in this ongoing conflict and the consequences will be absolutely unpredictable,” Kosachev said, addicting that sending US troops into Syria would be a “big mistake.”
At the same time, Kosachev, stressed that Russia would not send ground troops into Syria.
“No ground operation is possible [in Syria], because that would inevitably i
nvolve Russia in the ongoing war,” the politician told RT.
