President Trump is so pissed off by the Stormy affair that he is likely to prefer a good old war to another humiliation. This suits his enemies and friends (though not his voters) to a tee. He has a choice of doing a difficult manly act that needs all his courage, but which one? Should he put the well-being of his country at stake and brave Russian missiles, or risk the displeasure of the elites and sack Mueller? He is tempted to do the easy thing. Thus he has been maneuvered into deep waters by a powerful coalition of Brits and Jews, the same people who delivered you the last two world wars.

His attempt to make sense and drop the Syrian hot potato (“I strongly wish for the withdrawal of our forces from Syria”, he tweeted) has been rebuffed by the indomitable Mr Netanyahu. Don’t even think of doing it, the big man from Tel Aviv said to Donny in the tense telephone conversation. Don’t leave Syria, you still have to fight the Iranians and Russians. And don’t forget the Syrian kiddies, added the man still covered with the gore of 2,500 Palestinians shot on his orders last week. The Pentagon and US intelligence agencies take their orders directly from Tel Aviv, or via AIPAC; they are already preparing for an extended stay in Syria, despite Donny’s declarations.

The Jews went ballistic when they heard of Trump’s intention to leave Syria. The scribes of WaPo and NY Times condemned the step as playing into Russian hands. “Washington Post columnist and CNN commentator Catherine Rampell said that “Putin must be ecstatic” with Trump’s instructions to begin planning for withdrawal from the region. Forget the fact that it’d be odd for a president to base all of his foreign policy decisions on what would bother Russia — why isn’t Rampell focusing on how delightful it must be for American soldiers to finally reunite with their families, or how the resources this country has spent overseas can now be used domestically?”, – noted a media reporter. This was the cue for Mueller’s raid of Cohen’s office. The old fool has to be pushed, if he does not want to go by his own will, they decided.

America with its Puritan background is the only country where sexual mores are so strict that they lead to war. Clinton went to war in Yugoslavia because of a blow job, while Trump will possibly destroy the world because of a one-night stand.

An attack on Syria is likely to bring a Russian response. At the least, it will be a local conflagration, a joust, a trial of forces and wills. Who knows how it will end? This was been postponed in 2013, when the US armada sailed to Syria’s shores to avenge some other alleged chemical attack. I wrote about that fateful encounter, perhaps over-optimistically, in a piece called The Cape of Good Hope.

“It was touch and go, just as risky as the Cuban missile crisis of 1962. The chances for total war were high, as the steely wills of America and Eurasia had crossed in the Eastern Mediterranean. The most dramatic event of September 2013 was the high-noon stand-off near the Levantine shore, with five US destroyers pointing their Tomahawks towards Damascus and facing them – the Russian flotilla of eleven ships led by the carrier-killer Missile Cruiser Moskva and supported by Chinese warships. Apparently, two missiles were launched towards the Syrian coast, and both failed to reach their destination. (We shall return to these two missiles later).

After this strange incident, the pending shoot-out did not commence, as President Obama stood down and holstered his guns. This was preceded by an unexpected vote in the British Parliament. This venerable body declined the honour of joining the attack proposed by the US. This was the first time in two hundred years that the British parliament voted down a sensible proposition to start a war; usually the Brits can’t resist the temptation. This misadventure put paid to American hegemony , supremacy and exceptionalism. Manifest Destiny was over.”

As we see now, the high noon was been postponed by five years, and now it is being re-run. The British Prime Minister Theresa May decided she does not need parliament’s approval, President Trump decided he does not need an approval of Congress. So these brakes had been removed.

And now back to those two missiles of 2013. They were sent by the Israelis, whether they were trying to jump-start the shoot-out or just observed the clouds, as they claim. The missiles never reached its destination, shot down by the Russian ship-based sea-to-air defence system, or perhaps rendered useless by Russian GPS jammers.

Fast forward to 2018. On the night of April 10, in the small hours, the Syrian air field T-4 had been attacked by eight air-to-ground missiles; five were downed by the Syrian defence, three (or two) reached their goal and killed a few personnel. For a while, it was thought this was the American attack, but rather quickly, “Russia outed Israel”, as Haaretz reported. Israel tried to dissimulate, at first claiming they warned Putin and got his okay. When Putin’s spokesman denied that, they said they did it by the US request. Most probably they again tried to bring the confrontation to the fore.

Now, with the US Navy in place, with the support of England and France, the countdown to a confrontation has apparently started. The Russians are grimly preparing for the battle, whether a local one or the global one, and they expect it to begin any moment.

The road to this High Noon had led through the Scripal Affair, the diplomats’ expulsion and the Syrian battle for Eastern Ghouta, with an important side show provided by Israeli shenanigans.

ORDER IT NOW

The diplomats’ expulsion flabbergasted the Russians. For days they went around scratching their heads and looking for an answer: what do they want from us? What is the bottom line? Too many events that make little sense separately. Why did the US administration expel 60 Russian diplomats? Do they want to cut off diplomatic relations, or is it a first step to an attempt to remove Russia from the Security Council, or to cancel its veto rights? Does it mean the US has given up on diplomacy? (The answer “it’s war” didn’t come to their minds at that time).

The astonished Russians responded all right. They also expelled 60 diplomats, and they made it painful: all US diplomats engaged in the political department of the Moscow Embassy were on the non-grata list. The Political department consisted of three sections, dealing with foreign policy, internal Russian politics and military analysis; the most important centre of data collection, of liaison with Russian politicians, of military consequences, of Syria and Ukraine, of North Korea and China, experienced first-class intelligence officers and field hands – all gone, including their Political Officer Christopher Robinson (POL). The Russians expelled Maria Olson, the Embassy’s well-known spokesperson, and the Ambassador’s interpreter. They closed down St Petersburg Consulate, an important centre for connecting, influencing and interacting with the opposition in this ‘second capital’ of Russia. The US has lost many of its Moscow hands, people who knew Russia and had developed personal relations with important Russians. It will take a lot of time and effort for the US State Department and intelligence agencies to get back to the positions they had lost. The Brits who initiated the deportations also lost about fifty of their Moscow Embassy staff.

Surprisingly, the mass deportation of so many Russian diplomats had little effect on the Russian people, as this strike had been neutralised by another painful event, by the Kemerovo Mall blaze killing 64 cinema-goers including over 40 children. The blaze, even if it weren’t arson (it has not been proven yet) had triggered a massive onslaught of fake news and internet trolls on the people of Russia. A million underfed Ukrainians were deployed by the Western psywar on the web to tell the Russians that hundreds of their children had been incinerated, and that their authorities lie to them. This operation revealed the level of influence and integration the Western spy agencies have in Russia.

Kemerovo was a good choice for the operation: it is the only ethnic-Russian region ruled by an old-style local hero who had outlived his wits, the only region that reported indecently (and unrealistically) high support for Putin in the recent elections, a depressive region of mines and miners with a big potential for trouble.

Putin managed it rather well by coming personally and dealing with the situation hands on. He learned the ropes since 2000, when, at the dawn of his first presidential term, the Kursk submarine went down with all hands. Putin stayed away from the sailors’ families, and acted callous, people said. “It had sunk”, Putin replied to the question “What happened to Kursk?” (It is said USS Memphis had fired a torpedo at the submarine, causing the disaster, while the new president had been reluctant to aggravate relations with Clinton Administration). Now, in 2018, he was very good, full of empathy and consideration, conveying strength and decisiveness.

Whatever American agency carried out the psyop around Kemerovo, it was very successful, but its success undermined another operation, that of the Russian diplomats’ expulsion. The Russians did not pay it sufficient attention.

The alleged reason for the expulsion, the poisoning of Sergey Skripal and his daughter, made very little sense. Even if the old spy were bumped off by his erstwhile employers, such a reaction would be excessive by all means. He was not a Napoleon (poisoned by the Brits 200 years ago), not a prince of blood, not a great inventor nor a successful spy. He was a retired ex-spy, a wash-out. Anyway he didn’t die, he was just sick for a while. Perhaps he ate something in the pub that didn’t agree with him. This is the opinion of his niece, Victoria, who is the only person alive who had been in contact with the Skripals since their alleged hospitalisation.

This affair is so obscure that it beats Rashomon anytime. Russian reporters went around Salisbury and noticed many incongruences. It is not certain whether Skripals were poisoned at all, and where they are. Their pets survived the deadly poison, and they had to be destroyed. This piece of black Russian humour had been forwarded a lot around the net:

Skripal had been poisoned by a most powerful poison, 2 grams will kill half a country instantly! The Russians

- poisoned him in the restaurant

- no, on the bench

- no, in the car

- No, the door handle was smeared

- No, the suitcase was poisoned

- No, everything in the house was poisoned.

- Oh, and buckwheat was poisoned,

- but they did not die instantly, but walked around somewhere for four hours,

- but the policeman that discovered them almost died on the spot,

- but the poison was instantly identified,

- an antidote was instantly introduced, and Skripals and the policeman were saved;

- The policeman had been discharged next day!

- But they were in coma, and they will never recover!

- but no, the daughter had recovered fast!

- Oh, and dad is revived … a miracle!

- and they both are quickly recovering, your strongest poison is useless.

- the restaurant had been surrounded by police in spacesuits

- the park had been surrounded by police in spacesuits

- the house had surrounded by police in spacesuits

- they are in spacesuits, since the poison is deadly dangerous, but next to them are policemen without protection …

- The bench was cut down and removed: it’s such a terrible poison that the bench retained its toxic quality for two weeks;

- but the cat had survived in the poisoned house … the policeman had touched Skripal and nearly died, and the cat survived … and the guinea pigs would survive, but they were all forgotten, and died of hunger in the house;

- and their remains were immediately burned, as they are poisoned by the strongest poison;

- For two weeks they were poisoned by the strongest poison and survived, and now they had to be urgently cremated;

- Only guinea pigs died, the cat survived all this poison. It was stressful and hungry, so they killed it and cremated to make it certain nobody will find the secret etc etc.

The true hero of Skripal saga is the British ex-Ambassador Craig Murray, who followed the developments and unveiled many of its inconsistencies and outright lies. You may read his articles and twits to learn the details.

ORDER IT NOW

Julia Skripal took a daring step: she called her cousin Viktoria in Moscow. Their conversation is an amazing document. Julia says that she and her father are in good health; she doubts Viktoria will be allowed to visit her. Indeed, the British government refused to grant her visa. The feeling is that Julia is imprisoned.

I spoke with a retired Russian counter-intelligence officer who is familiar with the subject. He told me Russia never had a Novichok toxic substance: this name was given by counter-intelligence to A-232 in order to trace the leaks. It worked: a man called Vil Mirzayanov, an administrator in the chemical labs, leaked the Novichok story, and thus he was apprehended and arrested. A-232 had been produced in small amounts in 1990s, and some of it could be stolen and sold in these horrible years, when a full colonel of Russian intelligence had to moonlight as a taxi driver to supplement his measly $46 monthly salary. In those years, the poison could be indeed made available, and in one case it was used by criminals. Theoretically it is not impossible that some of this poison could have been saved and stored by some criminals; alternatively, it was available to the Americans who dismantled the labs in 1992. Anyway we have no independent proof that Skripals were poisoned by anything at all. If they survive, if the British and the American intelligence services don’t kill them, perhaps we shall know more. We can definitely exclude the possibility that Russian state agents would go to Britain to poison an old spy who had been pardoned by Russian president years ago. Even if he was active in producing Christopher Steele’s Trump (“Golden Rain”) file, the Russians would have no compelling reason to kill him at all, and in such an odd way in particular. “If we would kill him, he would stay killed”, concluded my interlocutor.

The details of Skripal case are very entertaining, but not necessary for our understanding. The case was used to install in minds the connection between chemical poisoning and Russia. It is unfair, for Russians destroyed all their chemical poisons under the eyes of Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) inspectors, but life is often unfair.

The connection between chemical poisoning and Russia had been prepared for the forthcoming event. Eastern Ghouta was an important and well entrenched location of the Syrian rebels. Being within easy reach from Central Damascus, it provided the rebels with a chance to seize power in the Syrian capital. As the Syrian army with Iranian and Russian support advanced into Eastern Ghouta, they learned of the rebel plans to stage a false flag chemical weapon attack, as they already had done a few times in past. President Putin warned of such a possibility at his joint (with President Erdogan and President Rouhani) press conference in Ankara last week, a few days before the alleged attack.

The attack had never occurred at all, but it was duly reported by the pro-Western media. Thus the game came to a close. Skripal Affair established the connection of Russia and chemical weapons, Eastern Ghouta allowed to use this connection in order to attack Russia.

We should not overestimate importance of these media events. The leading Western powers and their media refused to consider different explanations, refused an open inquiry, they went for jugular. Russia has been demonised in 2018, like Germany was demonised in 1940. It was a long and cautious labour. Have a look at this site theday.co.uk – it is a site for school children and their teachers. You’ll be amazed to discover its fervent hatred of Russia and Putin being pumped into hearts and heads of young generation. Such a long planning can’t be dependent on an event like poisoning of an ex-spy or even on the fall of a Syrian underground fortress.

The planners of a war on Russia have utilised fear of anti-Semitism for their purposes. I called this method Anti-semitism Weaponised. Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour leader, has been blocked and contained by accusations of anti-Semitism. He was the only leader able to stop Britain’s descent into war with Russia. Other Labour MPs and activists have been attacked over alleged anti-Semitism issue, and – what a coincidence! – practically all of them were against demonising Russia; while Friends of Israel – whether Conservative or Labour – were viciously anti-Russian.

This is a correlation that will be discussed at another time, but it is far from obvious one. Russia has no anti-Semitism; the Russian president is friendly to Israel and to the powerful Jewish Chabad movement. Russia has no white nationalism, and little of the alt-right. However, this correlation exists. Shall we explain it by Jewish hatred of the Orthodox Church, as this Church (active in Russia, Greece, Palestine and Syria) hasn’t been Jewified. Or should we prefer a more simple explanation: Jews are well integrated into Western elites, and they promote and support the goals of these elites.

However, people who can withstand accusations of anti-Semitism are the strongest enemies of the ruling power; they stand against the war with Russia and against attack on Syria, as the Haaretz newspaper explained in an article called White Supremacists Defend Assad, Warn Trump: Don’t Let Israel Force You Into War With Syria . The article continues: “Alt-right calls Saturday’s chemical attack in Damascus suburb a false flag operation, claiming it’s an effort by Israel and ‘globalists’ to keep U.S. troops in Middle East” It quotes David Duke and other untouchables as the only people who reject Israeli narrative.

Not being a white supremacist (probably I do not qualify) I still applaud these brave men when they say and do the right thing. Sensitivity to anti-Semitism accusation is a strong vulnerability of character. Though people like Corbyn have their heart in the right place, they are weak on this point, and the enemy uses this weakness to neutralize them. There are people in the left that are not afraid of any accusation, but there aren’t many who are resistant to metum Judaeorum.

Let us hope and pray we shall survive the forthcoming cataclysm.

    Agree. If Russia had nuked up at its bases in Syria it would’ve sealed the regime change side’s loss. Don’t know why this was not done. Maybe they never figured it would get to this point with Trump threatening them with missile strikes? Maybe they need to fly them in now? Create a Strategic Rocket Forces base near Damascus. Game over.

    "Instead we should bring nukes to Khmeinim, and explicitly threaten Zionist regime with nuclear annihilation. I bet this will get them to back off."

    I respond:

    I think that's a bit too much. There are other ways to put the worst anti Russian, anti Christ Jews in their place so to speak.

    Vladimir Putin put the worst Yid Oligarch head of Yukos Oil in a public jail/cage then sentenced this anti Russian Yid to forced labor in Siberia.

    The Russians could use their influence with Polish Nationalists to simply dismantle the Aushwitz sacred 6 million gassed Jews Holy place and replace it with a Catholic monastery or a soccer field.

    Felix, you are absolutely right. Neither US nor UK nor any EU entities are sovereign States, they are all Jews' colonies – and all their sanctions against Russia are the Jews' sanctions.

    Putin was successfully injected with the kosher anaesthetic the Talmudic leeches use to tranquilize their victims, before they bleed them dry.

    Had he posed a threat to those bloodsuckers in the Middle East, Russia would have enjoyed the status of the most favoured nation with all those kosher banana republics of the ‘free world’ that spurn her – and you would have never heard of any Skripals, either.

    The Jews always grow big and all-powerful amidst treason, corruption and cowardice.

    I have now read Paul Roberts’ Unz review article. He reports that on April 20, nine US ships will have reached the Syrian coast where the Russian army is based. If Russia strikes, that would be the date of Armageddon. There appears to be a media black out on the events in Gaza and Syria. Will mass global panic start manifesting as news leaks out?

  8. The reason for the war is not Syria not poison gas, not nerve gas, but petroleum oil and gas and LNG and weapon sales.. Russian petroleum profits are up 3x over last year, and its exports are up 2x.
    Japan and China have been buying Russian gas and oil and LNG without using the federal reserve monitoring system (trading in the currencies of their own nations). moreover, the rest of the world has been buying s400s and other sophisticated Russia technology, the Nord II pipeline is nearly complete, a very large LNG plant has started up in Russia, One Road Chinese project is making substantial headway, the Chinese own the commercial parts of Africa and nearly all consumer markets in America, China has adopted a gold backed Yuan. This is a problem for the west because the western cost of producing oil and gas and LNG is much higher than the selling price of competitive Russian, Iranian and Syrian petroleum products and because no one in the west knows how to operate the factories that can produce the products that could be used to compete against the Chinese factories.

    Wall Street, the Federal Reserve,sanctions, CIA, Mossad, NATO, trade laws, Google, Intel and ATT, and the UN are no longer effective tools against the competition of Eastern Oligarchs. Both East and West are owned by wealthy Capitalist. Capitalism is very powerful, so powerful it is dangerous, because it destroys everything in its way.. it produces losers, lots and lots of lots of losers, in fact everyone is a loser except one.. As the momentum shifts between the players the winner sucks up the assets of the competition one by one, until soon there is no one left to play. at the point the winner owns everything, and the losers have nothing..
    The west is at that point, if it lands on Boardwalk or Park place one more time, its broke. Gotta bust up the game before the West loses. throw all the pieces, cards and dice off the board, and fold the board up, put the board back in the monopoly box, else the western Pharaohs will go down; they will be the losers. So the war.
    Calling all slaves put on your uniforms, kiss your ass goodbye and defend the wealth of your Pharaoh.. or your Oligarch.

    Its all about corporate profits and market monopoly powers that drive the wealth engines that feed the western Pharaohs; the Eastern Oligarch are winning, so a take down war is necessary. Netanyohu is a pawn in this game..this game is not a Jewish game, its a capitalist game, its not played by local politics but by giant monopoly protected global corporations that fight their wars through proxy nation states. While it is true many Zionist are Jews, it is more true that nearly all of the Western Pharaoh ranks are Zionist (not a racial thing, but a global wealth slinging network thing).

    On your note, concise, complete, the game theory of capitalism is theoretically flawed, as a first in ending up in a tar-ball, then being human centric and not including the larger context of the environment. It has taken the shape of an experiment, relatively easily being anticipated, of burning the lab.

    Now we can either compare "international corporatism", to the ultimate dumbstruck breeding wars of Islam, and consider it "smart".

    Then rather consider the "not smart enough", and certainly as "improvising" with no clear strategy and erroneous tactics, the shape of the exit alley applied by initiating chaos as again a haphazard solution "as we go" to have global "death systemics" live for one more day.

    The 99,5 of DNA that equals us all, might be at cause, not Trump, not Russia, not "Jews", but the morose cognitive capacity of the human race. Playing one another equates to masturbation as a process. Let us use data mining, AI, eugenics, interstellar exploration to protect us from ourselves in general, instead of the "distinct" other. At what matters, at once!, let's play, there is nothing left to loose.

    The game only changes in specific details. You summed it all up extremely well.

    The truth is that we have got our way. We have got most of the things we set out to get…The German Navy has been handed over; the German mercantile shipping has been handed over, and the German colonies have been given up. One of our chief trade competitors has been most seriously crippled and our Allies are about to become her biggest creditors. That is no small achievement. In addition, we have destroyed the menace to our Indian possessions.

    I think they expected to grow muscle but no teeth in Asia. China was going to be the work shop of the globalists while they starved their most dangerous political competition in the West that has too much freedom. Russia was supposed to be dead. The wild card in my mind is Turkey. If Turkey falls into the Asian orbit , you are looking even at a tactical military balance at least in the region itself.

    The world needs for all Jews to leave the west and return to Israel, and for the West to cut all ties with them, just as we should cut all ties with all Muslim nations. Let these two groups of trouble makers go duke it out between themselves. Until we are free from the cancer that is trying to destroy us from within, the west cannot survive.

    The reason for the war is not Syria not poison gas, not nerve gas, but petroleum oil and gas and LNG and weapon sales.. Russian petroleum profits are up 3x over last year, and its exports are up 2x.
    Japan and China have been buying Russian gas and oil and LNG without using the federal reserve monitoring system (trading in the currencies of their own nations). moreover, the rest of the world has been buying s400s and other sophisticated Russia technology, the Nord II pipeline is nearly complete, a very large LNG plant has started up in Russia, One Road Chinese project is making substantial headway, the Chinese own the commercial parts of Africa and nearly all consumer markets in America, China has adopted a gold backed Yuan. This is a problem for the west because the western cost of producing oil and gas and LNG is much higher than the selling price of competitive Russian, Iranian and Syrian petroleum products and because no one in the west knows how to operate the factories that can produce the products that could be used to compete against the Chinese factories.

    Wall Street, the Federal Reserve,sanctions, CIA, Mossad, NATO, trade laws, Google, Intel and ATT, and the UN are no longer effective tools against the competition of Eastern Oligarchs. Both East and West are owned by wealthy Capitalist. Capitalism is very powerful, so powerful it is dangerous, because it destroys everything in its way.. it produces losers, lots and lots of lots of losers, in fact everyone is a loser except one..

    The west is at that point, if it lands on Boardwalk or Park place one more time, its broke.

  10. “He [Putin] learned the ropes since 2000, when, at the dawn of his first presidential term, the Kursk submarine went down with all hands.

    “Putin stayed away from the sailors’ families, and acted callous, people said. “It had sunk”, Putin replied to the question “What happened to Kursk?””

    This is complete nonsense. Putin went to the base and invited all the relatives to talk with him in the base hall and he stayed with them until they had exhausted their questions. He was utterly feeling and vulnerable with them and told them, “I could tell you that there’s hope for your loved ones and leave with your good feelings. Or I can tell you the truth and stay with you”.

    And he stayed with them.

    I have now read Paul Roberts' Unz review article. He reports that on April 20, nine US ships will have reached the Syrian coast where the Russian army is based. If Russia strikes, that would be the date of Armageddon. There appears to be a media black out on the events in Gaza and Syria. Will mass global panic start manifesting as news leaks out? Are there patriotic military officers left in the American high command or are they in paralysis?

    The joke behind the drama.

    Military capitalism, let us coin it, if it is not done, here and now, is the only thing left to continue the game of elite dominance worldwide, the who owns what(including ideas and intentions) is at stake, war is derivatives to the masses, it can only be but beneficial, dead zones and bulk populi weeding, is favourable.

    To the advantage(on the scale of rational versus psychological), Russia and China have been on the reactive side of applying the game of military capitalism. Most probably by the jest of times that they and far from the US had still a margin of exploit at a level below military capitalism: trade, exchange currencies, and the vast market of the sitting duck, coveted by all, the European community as exploitable territory, market, population. Call as you might designate. The EU is a joke, exempt from leadership, seriously merKel, maY, macroN, and before goD, Junker?, they just are figureheads of international Jewry being the “smartest”, best organised entity in politics. To our very regret, consider them not smart enough to include long term, transcendental thinking beyond the morrow. Anything, anyone that has any independent thinking capacity, who can float and charismatically toss a rational other then the above is bait indeed. That goes for Putin for one, and beyond persons, any ideas that can be exploited to benefit other then “chaos”, the guideline of the day, imposed by brute force, a stitch at a time.

    It is utmost enjoyable in a day where a few drones, cheaply applied, by all and other parties would have pierced the broehaha of “chemical attack”, at the source. Discarding the whole ‘professional wrestling” show of the UN. The world does not need “interpreters”, exempt of physical courage, brain-dead senile, overfed, “waffle-waitresses”, the globe needs the opening up of the elites to eugenics, AI, “globalism” of a different kind, to survive the suffocation of toxicity, bulging world-population, interstellar projects. The current “chaos” theory, the one applied for now, with the clear goal of floating the elites, and getting rid of the commoner by numbers, harnessing the herd into a manageable lot is a pathway to nowhere. It excludes from the equation …our planet, a resourceful beast, that might backfire more specifically as to our species as vice-versa.

    War is obsolete, thus applied, makes our elites an historical laughing stock not up to the tools readily available, which rightfully applied would prove any public communication as goes, even to the average person, comprehensible as junk.

    The problem with the current "elites" that they are not suited for a functioning human society. They are mutants evolved for parasitizing on a human society of normal people.
    The international Jewry, with its complete lack of scruples (no morals, no human dignity) is pushing for a final solution -- that is, for an immediate complete triumph of the zionized "elites." The inconvenient truths of tomorrow have been studiously avoided.

    Here are some specific observations re the current situation in Syria and, in particular, re the zionized US Congress' behavior: https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-04-11/us-p-8-poseidon-submarine-killer-headed-syria (comment section)
    "Putin/Assad have wiped out ISIS in Syria...and the USA wants revenge. The US Government takes down Backpage.com to stop prostitution, yet ISIS and related "Terror" websites are still up and running. Plain as day that "Terror" websites are being served because the USA wants them served. If not, a simple 24x7x365 DDoS assault would shut them all down; this is beyond the Governments ability?"

    --- It is well known that ISIS is a creature of the zionized US Congress. http://freedom-articles.toolsforfreedom.com/top-10-proofs-isis-us-israeli-creation/
    General Clark stated in a CNN interview: “ISIS got started through funding from our friends and allies. Because as people will tell you in the region that if you want somebody who will fight to the death against Hezbollah, you don’t put out a recruiting poster saying, ‘sign up for us. We’re gonna make a better world.’ You go after zealots and you go after these religious fundamentalists. That’s who fights Hezbollah. It’s like a Frankenstein.” http://americanfreepress.net/general-blows-whistle-on-islamic-state/
    -- Currently, NATO forces are tenderly relocating the jihadis from the Ghouta to safe havens in order to have the "freedom fighters" for other provocations against sovereign Syria and sovereign Iran.
    Israel-firsters in the US and the UK are unreformable -- as well as the fanatical Jewry in Israel is unreformable. They want their Eretz Israel and they want to dominate the world by any means.
    The ongoing massive attack by Israeli hasbara and the removal of videos critical of Israel from the web show the deadly determination of the "chosen."

    Much truth in the article, but even more so in the title. The best argument against RussiaGate always was for me that Russia does not understand the West and has no effective way of dealing with, let alone influencing it. Always on the back foot, always on the defensive. Always hoping that their partners will calm down eventually, that what you see in front of your eyes cannot be the true nature of a technologically advanced society. Wrong: you are facing an amoral and very powerful predator who has it in for you. In these circumstances, any sign of weakness can be fatal.

    Given how grave the situation is, and how long it has been thus already, this delusion about what Russia is facing is hard to forgive. Even more so given that Russia also has jews at home, and even in the Kremlin.

In addition, we have destroyed the menace to our Indian possessions.

    Wars–or the threat of war–is a wonderful tool to keep the sheeple penned in the corner, bawling for relief while the psychopaths continue to run and ruin the USA and much of the West.

    If not for all these wars, False Flags and the constant slinging of anti-Semitic accusations hitting people like an artillery barrage, we might be able to think and ask some pertinent questions, like:

    1. Why does a collection of private bankers own and control our currency, forcing Americans to pay around $500 billion a year in tribute, disguised as interest?

    2. Why doesn’t the US Treasury print debt-free currency, instead of letting the banksters print debt-based currency, ensnaring us in a fiscal trap that can we can never escape?

    3. Why is the Federal Reserve investing in the stock market? With their ability to print an unlimited amount of USD’s–with NO oversight–can’t they make the stock market dance to their tune?

    Try getting answers to these questions will put you in the trusty anti-Semitic gun sights, ensuring your political demise or even your actual death, as JFK found out.

    The reason for the war is not Syria not poison gas, not nerve gas, but petroleum oil and gas and LNG and weapon sales.. Russian petroleum profits are up 3x over last year, and its exports are up 2x.
    Japan and China have been buying Russian gas and oil and LNG without using the federal reserve monitoring system (trading in the currencies of their own nations). moreover, the rest of the world has been buying s400s and other sophisticated Russia technology, the Nord II pipeline is nearly complete, a very large LNG plant has started up in Russia, One Road Chinese project is making substantial headway, the Chinese own the commercial parts of Africa and nearly all consumer markets in America, China has adopted a gold backed Yuan. This is a problem for the west because the western cost of producing oil and gas and LNG is much higher than the selling price of competitive Russian, Iranian and Syrian petroleum products and because no one in the west knows how to operate the factories that can produce the products that could be used to compete against the Chinese factories.

    Wall Street, the Federal Reserve,sanctions, CIA, Mossad, NATO, trade laws, Google, Intel and ATT, and the UN are no longer effective tools against the competition of Eastern Oligarchs. Both East and West are owned by wealthy Capitalist. Capitalism is very powerful, so powerful it is dangerous, because it destroys everything in its way.. it produces losers, lots and lots of lots of losers, in fact everyone is a loser except one.. As the momentum shifts between the players the winner sucks up the assets of the competition one by one, until soon there is no one left to play. at the point the winner owns everything, and the losers have nothing..
    The west is at that point, if it lands on Boardwalk or Park place one more time, its broke. Gotta bust up the game before the West loses. throw all the pieces, cards and dice off the board, and fold the board up, put the board back in the monopoly box, else the western Pharaohs will go down; they will be the losers. So the war.
    Calling all slaves put on your uniforms, kiss your ass goodbye and defend the wealth of your Pharaoh.. or your Oligarch.


    Its all about corporate profits and market monopoly powers that drive the wealth engines that feed the western Pharaohs; the Eastern Oligarch are winning, so a take down war is necessary. Netanyohu is a pawn in this game..this game is not a Jewish game, its a capitalist game, its not played by local politics but by giant monopoly protected global corporations that fight their wars through proxy nation states. While it is true many Zionist are Jews, it is more true that nearly all of the Western Pharaoh ranks are Zionist (not a racial thing, but a global wealth slinging network thing).

  27. “Brits and Jews”

    It was a British Jew, Ed Miliband, who led his MPs into the lobby to vote against bombing Syria after the last alleged nerve gas attack. A few brave Conservatives joined them and Cameron lost the vote.

    The British vote was almost certainly decisive when Obama considered and rejected an attack.

    (Miliband was probably looking to embarrass the Tories, but it’s what he did that counted. I’m sure his brother David would have voted for air strikes.)

  28. The U.S. is totally under Zionist control and is fighting Israels wars in the ME for the goal of a Zionist NWO, which was perpetrated by the Israeli attack on 911 and was assisted by the Zionist controlled deep state.

    All wars that America has been in beginning with WWI and every war since then has been fought by Americans for the Zionist bankers and their FED and IRS which were both created by the Zionists in 1913.

    Desert Fox, you mention those particular Protocols, and I agree. The attempt to push them back into Pandora's box by getting a court ruling that they were forgeries, a nonsensical claim anyway, needs to be flushed down the latrine.

    One of the screams about them is that they are "anti-Semitic". We could discuss that weapon word. But in any case those Protocols don't cause us to hate Jews (most of whom are innocent and didn't choose to the Jews), they cause us to be wary. If we know what's going on we are less easily fooled.

    Whether Zionist bankers or the Zionist lobby took us into WW1 and WW2 might be debated, but Benjamin Freedman and Alison Weir are very credible on the topic.

    "He [Putin] learned the ropes since 2000, when, at the dawn of his first presidential term, the Kursk submarine went down with all hands.

    "Putin stayed away from the sailors’ families, and acted callous, people said. “It had sunk”, Putin replied to the question “What happened to Kursk?”"

    This is complete nonsense. Putin went to the base and invited all the relatives to talk with him in the base hall and he stayed with them until they had exhausted their questions. He was utterly feeling and vulnerable with them and told them, "I could tell you that there's hope for your loved ones and leave with your good feelings. Or I can tell you the truth and stay with you".

    And he stayed with them.

    I'm sure someone can locate the footage. I was, as you can tell, so impressed by his performance that I recommended the video to many friends.

    Much truth in the article, but even more so in the title. The best argument against RussiaGate always was for me that Russia does not understand the West and has no effective way of dealing with, let alone influencing it. Always on the back foot, always on the defensive. Always hoping that their partners will calm down eventually, that what you see in front of your eyes cannot be the true nature of a technologically advanced society. Wrong: you are facing an amoral and very powerful predator who has it in for you. In these circumstances, any sign of weakness can be fatal.

    Given how grave the situation is, and how long it has been thus already, this delusion about what Russia is facing is hard to forgive. Even more so given that Russia also has jews at home, and even in the Kremlin.

    The Russians are desperate to avoid war. They understand War quite well.
    So – they must constantly deal with increasingly ridiculous/vicious western provocations. But their hope & patience is wearing thin. Imagine having to swollow the tsunami of insults & disrespect Russia has suffered over the last 8 or so years ?
    They are being pushed, forced & manipulated into a war they don’t want.
    A war no one with a molecule of brain & heart wants.

But "Putin's Russia", for all the theater, is seen as a paper tiger by everyone that counts. I'm not even saying the perception is right or wrong, but allowing the perception to persist is a terrible failing of the Putin government.

    Correct. Americans may elect presidents but imperial politics determine whether they are permitted to wield power or are blocked or impeached. With dual (or triple) loyalty Jews dominating both major parties, Trump cannot withstand the assaults of the Jewish Left without the support of the Neocons. Only the Neocons can retain congressional Repub support for Trump. America today has only two capitals: San Francisco n Jerusalem, n they are fighting each other for control. The American voter has become irrelevant. Once they cast their ritual vote n their temple sacrifice is done, the priestly elites take over n palace intrigue between these factions determines whether the king survives.

  39. This was preceded by an unexpected vote in the British Parliament. This venerable body declined the honour of joining the attack proposed by the US. This was the first time in two hundred years that the British parliament voted down a sensible proposition to start a war; usually the Brits can’t resist the temptation.

    This was the only time that Parliament ever voted on the matter at all.

    The power to declare war and peace is reserved to the monarch and does not require a vote in Parliament. Parliament has traditionally attempted to stop wars of which it does not approve by blocking supply (money). You have a point in that I don’t believe this has happened since the 17th century.

    The post-Hanoverian British monarchs have all been spineless cucks who refuse to reign, so in practice the declaration of war and peace is simply a decision of the Cabinet.

    Submission of this decision to Parliament by David Cameron was one of his many idiotic political “innovations” reflecting the Americanization of British politics since 1979.

    The British Prime Minister Theresa May decided she does not need parliament’s approval, President Trump decided he does not need an approval of Congress.

    As a practical matter Theresa May is correct. She needs only the approval of Her Majesty (lol) Queen Elizabeth II, which is a given since she’s a spineless loser who always allows her Prime Minister to control her completely.

    President Trump already has Congress’s approval owing to whatever the blanket law is that they passed in the naughties allowing the President to go to war anywhere in the world at any time for any reason that they keep extending.

    And if that law didn’t exist Congress would beg him to go to war at once. In fact many in Congress think Trump is a traitor simply for saying kind things about Russia and its head of state on occasion.

    ‘Frightening edge of World War 3′ … is that feeling a manipulated goal of these events?

    A frightening East-West ‘confrontation’ seems to be the key element needed as pretext to establish the NWO ‘New World Order’

    Possibly China, Russia & the USA neo-cons are all in this together with Israel and Chabad … a big awful murderous mess up ahead and then Pope Francis at the United Nations to lead us into a shangri-la of open borders, unlimited mingrants in the West etc

    Even the most ‘Deep State’ US Presidents get threatened, shot, impeached

    Deep State Clinton balked on bombing Serbia and then found himself with a Jewish agent Monica Lewinsky sparking his ‘impeachment’ until Clinton agreed to start bombing, then Clinton was ‘acquitted’

    JFK shot & killed 1963, Richard Nixon impeached & removed 1974, Ronald Reagan shot 1981

    Now in 2018 Trump has his home building on fire killing a Jewish neighbour, and his personal lawyer (Jewish) raided and Trump’s personal legal files taken away by ‘investigators’

    To me, Trump does not wish to play this Syrian-war role but he is obviously under total threat and constraint to do so

    This does not contradict what I said at all. The power to declare war and peace is not the power to make law.

    See here: https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2003/oct/21/uk.freedomofinformation

    Domestic Affairs

    The appointment and dismissal of ministers;

    The summoning, prorogation and dissolution of Parliament;

    Royal assent to bills;

    The appointment and regulation of the civil service;

    The commissioning of officers in the armed forces;

    Directing the disposition of the armed forces in the UK;

    Appointment of Queen's Counsel;

    Issue and withdrawal of passports;

    Prerogative of mercy. (Used to apply in capital punishment cases. Still used, eg to remedy errors in sentence calculation)

    Granting honours;

    Creation of corporations by Charter;

    Foreign Affairs

    The making of treaties;

    Declaration of war;

    Deployment of armed forces overseas;

    Recognition of foreign states;

    Accreditation and reception of diplomats.
     

    As you can see the monarch has quite considerable legal power, and the monarch's power to refuse the royal assent means that Parliament cannot reduce this authority without the monarch's consent. The only option would be a coup d'etat, potentially causing a civil war.

    That the monarch does not exercise these powers shows how truly pathetic Britain's ruling house is.

    The inability to issue royal decrees, raise taxes, or supply are the real constraints on royal power and cannot be gotten around without the consent of Parliament or a royalist coup d'etat.

    The monarch could've gotten around this prior to 1911 simply by stacking the House of Lords with cronies, but not only did George V consent to his own Waterloo but he was an active participant in destroying his own potential to take over parliament.

    What a loser.

    Frankly, I don't really even care if there is a nuclear war. Despite near-universal literacy rates, near-universal internet access and near-infinite information availability, most people are politically ignorant and apathetic, and most of the non-apathetic [pathetic?] people unconditionally worship Israel and/or reflexively hate Putin and Assad. Even highly "educated" people overwhelmingly tend to buy into one of the two mainstream [read: harmful not just to US interests but world peace overall] narratives on foreign policy.

    So screw it. Let them nukes rain down. Sweet Schadenfreude will be my last feeling before putting a slug through my brain stem [I live in a place which would a low-priority target].

    Imagine how God must feel. Eight out of Nine billion of his creation playing computer games on telephones. But it is the show which is the point. In 29,000 years (ten half lives of Plutonium or PU) a new ballgame begins. Book your seats now.

    It is critically exempt of any thought power that to consider to fall in line with the Western elites is anything but suicidal. The dividing line is not outer borders, West and East, but commoner versus “internationalism” as conceived open-endedly by our despicable elites.

    More specifically an attack on Russian forces in Syria will certainly bring a Russian response, and going on past experience, it will be a matching response. But how do you match a cruise missile attack on your forces launched from US navy ships?

    The only way, seems to be to attack the ships themselves, which would probably mean sinking some of them (which the Russians have warned they will do if necessary).

    If the Russians sink some US ships then what would Trump do? Launch an invasion of Syria or declare war on Russia? The whole situation is so hopelessly risky and pointless that the US public HAVE TO ALL get out into the streets in their cities and say NO TO WAR.

    The reason for the war is not Syria not poison gas, not nerve gas, but petroleum oil and gas and LNG and weapon sales.. Russian petroleum profits are up 3x over last year, and its exports are up 2x.
    Japan and China have been buying Russian gas and oil and LNG without using the federal reserve monitoring system (trading in the currencies of their own nations). moreover, the rest of the world has been buying s400s and other sophisticated Russia technology, the Nord II pipeline is nearly complete, a very large LNG plant has started up in Russia, One Road Chinese project is making substantial headway, the Chinese own the commercial parts of Africa and nearly all consumer markets in America, China has adopted a gold backed Yuan. This is a problem for the west because the western cost of producing oil and gas and LNG is much higher than the selling price of competitive Russian, Iranian and Syrian petroleum products and because no one in the west knows how to operate the factories that can produce the products that could be used to compete against the Chinese factories.

    Wall Street, the Federal Reserve,sanctions, CIA, Mossad, NATO, trade laws, Google, Intel and ATT, and the UN are no longer effective tools against the competition of Eastern Oligarchs. Both East and West are owned by wealthy Capitalist. Capitalism is very powerful, so powerful it is dangerous, because it destroys everything in its way.. it produces losers, lots and lots of lots of losers, in fact everyone is a loser except one.. As the momentum shifts between the players the winner sucks up the assets of the competition one by one, until soon there is no one left to play. at the point the winner owns everything, and the losers have nothing..
    The west is at that point, if it lands on Boardwalk or Park place one more time, its broke. Gotta bust up the game before the West loses. throw all the pieces, cards and dice off the board, and fold the board up, put the board back in the monopoly box, else the western Pharaohs will go down; they will be the losers. So the war.
    Calling all slaves put on your uniforms, kiss your ass goodbye and defend the wealth of your Pharaoh.. or your Oligarch.


    Its all about corporate profits and market monopoly powers that drive the wealth engines that feed the western Pharaohs; the Eastern Oligarch are winning, so a take down war is necessary. Netanyohu is a pawn in this game..this game is not a Jewish game, its a capitalist game, its not played by local politics but by giant monopoly protected global corporations that fight their wars through proxy nation states. While it is true many Zionist are Jews, it is more true that nearly all of the Western Pharaoh ranks are Zionist (not a racial thing, but a global wealth slinging network thing).

    The world needs for all Jews to leave the west and return to Israel, and for the West to cut all ties with them, just as we should cut all ties with all Muslim nations. Let these two groups of trouble makers go duke it out between themselves. Until we are free from the cancer that is trying to destroy us from within, the west cannot survive.

    The Jews, who run US foreign policy, may not care about American lives, but they care about survival of Israel.

    Israel establishes ALL policies legislated by the US Congress, and dictates all actions of the US federal government — state and local policy being influenced more by local money, much of which is a penumbra of Israel.

    Israel wants Syria. It’s that simple. Russia has frustrated that desire, and Israel’s puppet, the USA, will be directed to move Russia out of the way.

    Hilarity ensues.

    After Syria, Iraq. You betcha America will do its damndest to deliver all the ME to Israel. There is, after all, an expiration date on America. Israel must use America without mercy until it is exhausted of all resources, reduced to mexicanity.

    It is not that Israel establishes America's foreign policy. It is that the basic world view produced by WASP culture is naturally aligned with Jewish thought in most ways, especially in terms of Empire: ruling the world.

    That is so because Anglo-Saxon Puritanism was a Judaizing heresy. Judaizing heresy necessarily produces culture that not merely is pro-Jewish, but that leads people to act and think like Jews without their awareness. Like all ideas, Judaizing heresy bears fruit.

    You cannot solve the Jewish problem without also solving the WASP problem.

    Your former military planners have got it wrong. At this point in time Russia is stronger on land and in the air than NATO / America. Only at sea is Russia weaker.

    Even if Syria is bombed by America / Israel its not the end of the world, because all America and Israel can do is bomb. They're unwilling to put hundreds of thousands of boots on the ground to occupy Syria, only Turkey can do that and Turkey is not too happy with the US at present. The Syrians will just have to dig deeper bomb shelters and live underground for a while and still keep on wiping out the NATO irregulars (ISIS and what ever) until none of them is left.

    Russia can just weather the storm, take some losses (its a soldier's job to die in combat anyway) and kill some Americans, and thereafter participate more actively in Iraq and Afghanistan. While America / NATO loves shock and awe, Russia has made the slow grind its specialty, and has transferred these techniques to the Syrians and Hezbollah.

    But if anyone uses nukes, whatever the yield, then the situation will get totally out of hand, nukes are the only way to get past the slow grind.
    , @Anonymous
    I would disagree with that assessment. Not because the US and allies don't have an overwhelming material superiority but that the escalation path necessitates them to attack Russia directly once the Russian bases in Syria are gone because non military escalation has reached its end and Russia has few military assets outside of Russia. Diplomatic missions have skeleton crews and there is nothing meaningful left to sanction. The only thing left is to terminate diplomatic relations and kick Russia out of SWIFT both of these Russia has anticipated and prepared for in detail.

    Herein lies the problem. In order to escalate the US is forced to attack Russia directly. How would they do it? A ground invasion is farcical. How about limited air strikes? If the US and allies attempt a few limited air strikes Russia has the stand off capability to respond in kind. The US would not survive a prolonged period where EBT cards didn't work or long term power outages; the cities would destroy themselves. In that case tit for tat continues until the US collapses internally. Also Russia has few assets outside of Russia but the US has high value targets scattered all over the world. They aren't really defensible and Russia could chip away at them for years slowly bleeding the US treasury dry. All while China gives the US the finger behind their back.

    How about a massive air strike? There is no way for the Russians to know whether the incoming missiles have nuclear warheads or not so the likely response would be a fully committed nuclear strike. This isn't a desirable outcome for Russia, or america either, but it would be something they could be compelled to do through the actions of the US.

    The bottom line is that the US has no realistic expectation of defeating Russia militarily and from a economic and social standpoint time is on Russia's side. All they have to do is wait and win the war of attrition. I'm sure the military planners are aware of this and so I question their conclusion that Russia would have any incentive to use nuclear weapons unless compelled to by a US first strike.

    The post-Hanoverian British monarchs have all been spineless cucks who refuse to reign
     
    This is rubbish. In accordance with the Bill of Rights (1689):

    "the pretended power of suspending the laws and dispensing with laws by regal authority without consent of Parliament is illegal"
     
    The British monarch's constitutional powers are negligible. The function of the monarchy is purely ornamental, and a focus of national loyalty in times of trouble.

    This does not contradict what I said at all. The power to declare war and peace is not the power to make law.

    See here: https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2003/oct/21/uk.freedomofinformation

    Domestic Affairs

    The appointment and dismissal of ministers;

    The summoning, prorogation and dissolution of Parliament;

    Royal assent to bills;

    The appointment and regulation of the civil service;

    The commissioning of officers in the armed forces;

    Directing the disposition of the armed forces in the UK;

    Appointment of Queen’s Counsel;

    Issue and withdrawal of passports;

    Prerogative of mercy. (Used to apply in capital punishment cases. Still used, eg to remedy errors in sentence calculation)

    Granting honours;

    Creation of corporations by Charter;

    Foreign Affairs

    The making of treaties;

    Declaration of war;

    Deployment of armed forces overseas;

    Recognition of foreign states;

    Accreditation and reception of diplomats.

    As you can see the monarch has quite considerable legal power, and the monarch’s power to refuse the royal assent means that Parliament cannot reduce this authority without the monarch’s consent. The only option would be a coup d’etat, potentially causing a civil war.

    That the monarch does not exercise these powers shows how truly pathetic Britain’s ruling house is.

    The inability to issue royal decrees, raise taxes, or supply are the real constraints on royal power and cannot be gotten around without the consent of Parliament or a royalist coup d’etat.

    The monarch could’ve gotten around this prior to 1911 simply by stacking the House of Lords with cronies, but not only did George V consent to his own Waterloo but he was an active participant in destroying his own potential to take over parliament.

    What a loser.

    Everything you say about the powers of the British monarch is incorrect.

    What you seem not to know is that there was a civil war between the crown and parliament. The Parliamentary forces won and axed off the king's head. Subsequently the monarchy was restored but the conflict between crown and parliament resumed, resulting in a revolution.

    The King, fearing for his neck, fled to France where he remained until his death. Meantime, In England, a Dutch invasion force headed by William of Orange marched on London to the approbation of the crowds, and with the support of the head of the British army, Winston Churchill's ancestor, the Duke of Malborough.

    Following Williams installation as monarch, there were negotiations between the crown and parliament resulting in the Act of Settlement, which legally and permanently restricted the power of the monarch and made parliament permanently supreme.

    The fact that much is done in the name of the crown does not mean that the crown wields effective power. Just as most of Canada is owned in the name of the crown it does not mean that Canadians pay rent to QEII for the use of her land. In reality, it is the Federal and Provincial governments who wield the power of the Crown in Canada, as does the Parliament in Westminster, in the UK.

    The role of the monarchy is mainly to serve as a focus for national loyalty. As Baghot, author of the British Constitution (in 1867) wrote, "men are ruled not by their imagination, but by their lack of it." Hence the need for the monarch as a unifying symbol of power whereas real power is, as Baghot put it,wielded by the man on the Clapham omnibus (i.e., the educated middle class of Baghot's day, the people who made up the top ranks of the Foreign Office, the Treasury, etc., etc.) equivalent to today's deep state.

    One would think all Russia has to do is release the documents proving Stalin fabricated the Holohoax.

    Gorbachev took a swing at it by releasing the Auschwitz death books and proving it was a hoax.

    But I am sure there's more. E.g. evidence that the alleged gas-chambers were built after the war ended. Interviews with survivors. Admission that German prisoners were tortured and families severely threatened to elicit "confessions".

    It is interesting that Putin already outed Jews for being 85% of the Bolshevik leadership - to a meeting of Chabad Jews, of all places.

    Well…this is yet another thoroughly disjointed effort by Shamir…

    As usual the reader is left asking…’what’s your point…?’

    Even the Flaker at least presents some kind of coherent thesis…silly as it may usually be…

    …while Shamir is perfectly content to throw up some Yodaesque flakes of pseudo-wisdom…and leave it at that…

    The article does present some useful factoids and observations…such as the apparent severity and perhaps disproportionality of the Russian diplomat expulsions…didn’t know these nuances and appreciate this info…if accurate…

    Also the useful reminder of the Med Sea showdown in 2013…when Obama backed down at the last moment…

    But then Yoda Shamir veers off into the ‘Jewish question’ and ‘white nationalism’ to tie the whole bundle together…?

    …which has what exactly to do with the price of bananas…?

    [Other than Shamir playing to his base...]

    As for the Russians being ‘flabbergasted’…well that is certainly useful now isn’t it…?

    Personally I don’t think ‘flabbergast’ plays much of a role in Putin’s repertoire…and we will see just what VVP’s move will be if Dump decides to start a war against Russian ally Syria…as he seems intent on doing…

    The bigger question here is why is this showdown being forced by the McChicken Empire at this precise moment in time…?

    Surely it has nothing to do with Syria…that train left the station long ago…even assuming that Dump and the coalition of dwarfs he is assembling launches a Very Big military assault on Syria…the chances of changing the reality on the ground are slim to none…

    And that’s even if we assume that the Russian military response is measured or even just symbolic…

    However…I doubt the Russian response to an attempt to actually mug Syria is going to be anything but measured…

    When the missiles start flying the only calculus that counts is that of military capability…not the ‘Jewish question’ or anything else for that matter…

    As PCR notes in an excellent and far more salient essay from yesterday…

    ‘…The Russians know that they can, at will within a few minutes, sink the entire US fleet, destroy every US airplane and ship in the Middle East and within range of the Middle East, completely destroy all of Israel’s military capability and wipe out the military of the two-bit punk state of Saudi Arabia.

    All the sitting ducks have been set up for Russia by the arrogant and stupid Americans. Just a few minutes of Russian attack and all ability to conduct war would be stripped from the Middle East. This would be a good thing…’

    The only question PCR notes is whether VVP will actually choose that option…

    Unlike the silly D. Dump…who talked a big game about not telegraphing his military intentions…and now doing exactly the opposite…VVP is keeping mum…

    Fortunately for this thread…we have had a couple of good comments here as to why we are being taken to war at this moment in time…

    ‘buddy’ @ 8 summed it up nicely…

    ‘…The west is at that point, if it lands on Boardwalk or Park place one more time, its broke.

    Gotta bust up the game before the West loses. throw all the pieces, cards and dice off the board, and fold the board up, put the board back in the monopoly box, else the western Pharaohs will go down; they will be the losers.

    So the war…’

    Some of us had seen this coming already even a few weeks ago as the Skripal stunt exploded with such ferocity…

    ‘Why’…’Why now…?’

    For the sake of regime change in Syria…?

    Doesn’t add up…too much to lose and not enough to gain…

    War with Russia is a desperate move…there has to be a reason behind every desperate move…

    Nothing is more desperate an undertaking than war…especially war against a very powerful military…that would be off-the-scale desperation…

    Is the ponzi house of cards about to implode into its own footprint…?

    Something is up…the deep state and the moneybag elite that employs them are the only ones who really know the score as to the degree of teetering that the good ship McChicken is experiencing at any given moment…

    Yes, the current situation is a result of desperate moves by, what you call, the dying McChicken Empire. But you are neglecting that even a dying empire can pack one last big punch.

    It is a terrible situation that Putin cannot afford to react mildly to another Western attack on Syria for several good reasons, he really has to strike back now maybe most of all because he was absorbing all the smaller, provocative punches before. Thousands upon thousands of the Westerners will have to die to stop the madness and explain to the Western Orange Orangutan & Friends the limits of their international behaviour (imagine that little French shit wants to strike “only the chemical production facilities”, which do not exist in Syria).

    To all the thousands of ships at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea, some 20th century ones will be added, from the McFool’s Navy.

    I just remember Putin’s words that if you are sure that the conflict cannot be avoided, then you better be the first one to strike. Things will escalate so fast that no-one will be able to understand what just happened.

    Yes, destruction of Russia is the main objective, not Syria, although control of Syria is an objective.

    Once Russia has been bust up into a collection of corruptionistans to be looted at will be oligarchs of both east and west (with kick-backs to the Poroshenkite satraps), NATO will advance to the borders of China, and China will be invited to submit to the New World Ordure.

    The destruction of the self-governing, democratic nation state will then be complete. Rule will pass to the international Money Power, acting through multinational and global institutions such as the WTO, the World Bank, NATO, the EeYoo, etc.

    But, as Putin has stated, Russia sees no value in a world without Russia, which means a world of nation states, so look for any open conflict to escalate with not limit short of all out nuclear war, in which connection, here's Peter Ford, former UK Ambassador to Syria, on the current approach to armageddon.

    I agree with almost all of what you said. I am no expert, but I believe the weak card in the ponzi scheme is the petro-dollar.

    When the dollar went off of the gold standard, the US convinced the Saudis to sell oil in dollars only. This strengthened the dollar globally. Maybe that’s why the Saudis are part of the coalition.

    Apparently Saddam and Gaddafi threatened this arrangement and the US executed them for it. Perhaps Assad backed by Russia is just as great a threat. It looks like Iraq all over again.


    2. Why doesn’t the US Treasury print debt-free currency, instead of letting the banksters print debt-based currency, ensnaring us in a fiscal trap that can we can never escape?

     

    Is the petro-dollar the only thing keeping the dollar credit worthy? What happens when the dollar loses its luster?

    Is everyone here insane. Britain has a constitutional monarch with no more power than the Queen's representative as head of state, the Governor General of Canada, an obscure non-entity and former astronaut, named Julie Payette.

    Any time the Queen starts issuing decrees, she will be politely but firmly confined to a padded room. When Charles becomes king, it is likely that he will try issuing decrees and we will then see the Monarch actually placed in a padded room or otherwise disposed of, as was the Queen's nitwit uncle, King Edward the Eighth.

    The joke behind the drama.

    Military capitalism, let us coin it, if it is not done, here and now, is the only thing left to continue the game of elite dominance worldwide, the who owns what(including ideas and intentions) is at stake, war is derivatives to the masses, it can only be but beneficial, dead zones and bulk populi weeding, is favourable.

    To the advantage(on the scale of rational versus psychological), Russia and China have been on the reactive side of applying the game of military capitalism. Most probably by the jest of times that they and far from the US had still a margin of exploit at a level below military capitalism: trade, exchange currencies, and the vast market of the sitting duck, coveted by all, the European community as exploitable territory, market, population. Call as you might designate. The EU is a joke, exempt from leadership, seriously merKel, maY, macroN, and before goD, Junker?, they just are figureheads of international Jewry being the "smartest", best organised entity in politics. To our very regret, consider them not smart enough to include long term, transcendental thinking beyond the morrow. Anything, anyone that has any independent thinking capacity, who can float and charismatically toss a rational other then the above is bait indeed. That goes for Putin for one, and beyond persons, any ideas that can be exploited to benefit other then "chaos", the guideline of the day, imposed by brute force, a stitch at a time.

    It is utmost enjoyable in a day where a few drones, cheaply applied, by all and other parties would have pierced the broehaha of "chemical attack", at the source. Discarding the whole 'professional wrestling" show of the UN. The world does not need "interpreters", exempt of physical courage, brain-dead senile, overfed, "waffle-waitresses", the globe needs the opening up of the elites to eugenics, AI, "globalism" of a different kind, to survive the suffocation of toxicity, bulging world-population, interstellar projects. The current "chaos" theory, the one applied for now, with the clear goal of floating the elites, and getting rid of the commoner by numbers, harnessing the herd into a manageable lot is a pathway to nowhere. It excludes from the equation ...our planet, a resourceful beast, that might backfire more specifically as to our species as vice-versa.

    War is obsolete, thus applied, makes our elites an historical laughing stock not up to the tools readily available, which rightfully applied would prove any public communication as goes, even to the average person, comprehensible as junk.

    The problem with the current “elites” that they are not suited for a functioning human society. They are mutants evolved for parasitizing on a human society of normal people.
    The international Jewry, with its complete lack of scruples (no morals, no human dignity) is pushing for a final solution — that is, for an immediate complete triumph of the zionized “elites.” The inconvenient truths of tomorrow have been studiously avoided.

    Here are some specific observations re the current situation in Syria and, in particular, re the zionized US Congress’ behavior: https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-04-11/us-p-8-poseidon-submarine-killer-headed-syria (comment section)
    “Putin/Assad have wiped out ISIS in Syria…and the USA wants revenge. The US Government takes down Backpage.com to stop prostitution, yet ISIS and related “Terror” websites are still up and running. Plain as day that “Terror” websites are being served because the USA wants them served. If not, a simple 24x7x365 DDoS assault would shut them all down; this is beyond the Governments ability?”

    — It is well known that ISIS is a creature of the zionized US Congress. http://freedom-articles.toolsforfreedom.com/top-10-proofs-isis-us-israeli-creation/
    General Clark stated in a CNN interview: “ISIS got started through funding from our friends and allies. Because as people will tell you in the region that if you want somebody who will fight to the death against Hezbollah, you don’t put out a recruiting poster saying, ‘sign up for us. We’re gonna make a better world.’ You go after zealots and you go after these religious fundamentalists. That’s who fights Hezbollah. It’s like a Frankenstein.” http://americanfreepress.net/general-blows-whistle-on-islamic-state/
    – Currently, NATO forces are tenderly relocating the jihadis from the Ghouta to safe havens in order to have the “freedom fighters” for other provocations against sovereign Syria and sovereign Iran.
    Israel-firsters in the US and the UK are unreformable — as well as the fanatical Jewry in Israel is unreformable. They want their Eretz Israel and they want to dominate the world by any means.
    The ongoing massive attack by Israeli hasbara and the removal of videos critical of Israel from the web show the deadly determination of the “chosen.”
    Psalm 137-9: Psalm 137:9: “Happy is the one who takes your babies and smashes them against the rocks!” — And this is what Israel, the Lobby and The Friends of Israel desire to do on a global scale.

    That kind of verbiage is all very well and all very useless. The fact is that the elites are the elites: they have the power and they have no intention of giving it up. So what are you going to do about it?

    And while some powerful Jews and Israelis are globalists, so are plenty of other people. Scum like Tony Blair, Theresa May, the Bush's, the Clintons and most of the goyim sitting in Congress. So yelping about the Jews merely obscures the issue and raises the distracting howls about anti-Semitism.

    Get to the facts, identify the perps of all races and religions. Then you might begin to unravel a thread or two in the system of control under which you live.

    It appears that the Western regimes can on only get total utter idiots such as you and the orange orangutan to be their supporters and leaders. Good luck at winning a war with such staff profile and leaders.

    Frankly, I don't really even care if there is a nuclear war. Despite near-universal literacy rates, near-universal internet access and near-infinite information availability, most people are politically ignorant and apathetic, and most of the non-apathetic [pathetic?] people unconditionally worship Israel and/or reflexively hate Putin and Assad. Even highly "educated" people overwhelmingly tend to buy into one of the two mainstream [read: harmful not just to US interests but world peace overall] narratives on foreign policy.

    So screw it. Let them nukes rain down. Sweet Schadenfreude will be my last feeling before putting a slug through my brain stem [I live in a place which would a low-priority target].

    That is a good question. In fact, WW1 emerged from conflicts among many powers, all of them opportunistic and expansionist, quite prepared for wars of territorial aggrandizement. If the Brits and Jews are to be bear a special burden of blame, it is surely for obtaining American intervention, which prolonged the war and resulted in a dishonorable settlement that laid the foundation for German resentment and the Hitlerian madness.

    Specifically, it has been argued that the Jews of Wall St. feared that, without American aid, Britain would lose the war and fail to repay their debts to American bankers, thus they strove for American intervention, which the Brits naturally welcomed and facilitated, e.g., by directing the arms-carrying passenger vessel, the Lusitania, into the course of a German U-boat, which helpfully sank the ship drowning many American civilians.
    , @Sparkon
    In 1903, the eloquent Zionist trailblazer and co-founder of the World Zionist Organization Max Nordau gave a speech where he stressed "the future world war" and the subsequent "peace conference" where "great, free, and powerful England" would help establish a Jewish homeland in Palestine.

    “The whole assembly was under the spell of Nordau’s beautiful, truly poetic and exalted diction, and his exquisite, musical French delighted the hearers with an almost sensual pleasure. For a few seconds the speaker paused, and the public, absolutely intoxicated by his splendid oratory, applauded frantically. But soon Nordau asked for silence and continued:



    “‘Now this great progressive world power, England, has after the pogroms of Kishineff, in token of her sympathy with our poor people, offered through the Zionist Congress the autonomous colony of Uganda to the Jewish nation. Of course, Uganda is in Africa, and Africa is not Zion and never will be Zion, to quote Herzl’s own words.

    But Herzl knows full well that nothing is so valuable to the cause of Zionism as amicable political relations with such a power as England is, and so much more valuable as England’s main interest is concentrated in the Orient. Nowhere else is precedent as powerful as in England, and so it is most important to accept a colony out of the hands of England and create thus a precedent in our favor. Sooner or later the Oriental question will have to be solved, and the Oriental question means, naturally, also the question of Palestine.

    England, who had addressed a formal, political note to the Zionist Congress—the Zionist Congress which is pledged to the Basle program, England will have the deciding voice in the final solution of the Oriental question, and Herzl has considered it his duty to maintain valuable relations with this great and progressive power.

    Herzl knows that we stand before a tremendous upheaval of the whole world. Soon, perhaps, some kind of a world-congress will have to be called, and England, the great, free and powerful England, will then continue the work it has begun with its generous offer to the Sixth Congress.

    And if you ask me now what has Israel to do in Uganda, then let me tell you as the answer the words of the statesmen of Sardinia, only applied to our case and given in our version; let me tell you the following words as if I were showing you the rungs of a ladder leading upward and upward: Herzl, The Zionist Congress, the English Uganda proposition, the future world war, the peace conference where with the help of England a free and Jewish Palestine will be created.’
     
    “Like a mighty thunder these last words came to us, and we all were trembling and awestruck as if we had seen a vision of old. And in my ears were sounding the words of our great brother Achad Haam, who said of Nordau’s address at the First Congress:

    “‘I felt that one of the great old prophets was speaking to us, that his voice came down from the free hills of Judea, and our hearts were burning in us when we heard his words, filled with wonder, wisdom and vision.’”

    Trump needs to grow a brain and some balls, take on the real enemy -- the deep state. Fire Mueller, Rod Rosenstein and even Jeff Sessions, who is turning out to be a totally lame and weak AG. Replace him with Rudy Giuliani. Rod Rosenstein personally approved the FBI raid to Michael Cohen's office, and Cohen is sure to squeal when squeezed. Trump hired both, he loves Jews, now he's getting burnt by them.

    As for Syria, it's clear Assad would be insane to gas his own people now that he's already won the war. How curious the timing, just after Trump announced he wants the US out of Syria, and after Israel's getting heat from everyone on their latest shootings of Palestinian protesters. This latest chemical attack has Israel/Pentagon's fingerprints all over it.

    The real enemy is smart, tough, and relentless. He can’t believe his luck that this Putin guy he heard so much about is a pushover in comparison–even little Kim is scarier, as he seems to be itching for an actual fight. Isn’t Trump just following the path of least resistance here. If you’re not concerned about the fate of the planet, you might even call it rational.

    Well...this is yet another thoroughly disjointed effort by Shamir...

    As usual the reader is left asking...'what's your point...?'

    Even the Flaker at least presents some kind of coherent thesis...silly as it may usually be...

    ...while Shamir is perfectly content to throw up some Yodaesque flakes of pseudo-wisdom...and leave it at that...

    The article does present some useful factoids and observations...such as the apparent severity and perhaps disproportionality of the Russian diplomat expulsions...didn't know these nuances and appreciate this info...if accurate...

    Also the useful reminder of the Med Sea showdown in 2013...when Obama backed down at the last moment...

    But then Yoda Shamir veers off into the 'Jewish question' and 'white nationalism' to tie the whole bundle together...?

    ...which has what exactly to do with the price of bananas...?

    [Other than Shamir playing to his base...]

    As for the Russians being 'flabbergasted'...well that is certainly useful now isn't it...?

    Personally I don't think 'flabbergast' plays much of a role in Putin's repertoire...and we will see just what VVP's move will be if Dump decides to start a war against Russian ally Syria...as he seems intent on doing...

    The bigger question here is why is this showdown being forced by the McChicken Empire at this precise moment in time...?

    Surely it has nothing to do with Syria...that train left the station long ago...even assuming that Dump and the coalition of dwarfs he is assembling launches a Very Big military assault on Syria...the chances of changing the reality on the ground are slim to none...

    And that's even if we assume that the Russian military response is measured or even just symbolic...

    However...I doubt the Russian response to an attempt to actually mug Syria is going to be anything but measured...

    When the missiles start flying the only calculus that counts is that of military capability...not the 'Jewish question' or anything else for that matter...

    As PCR notes in an excellent and far more salient essay from yesterday...

    '...The Russians know that they can, at will within a few minutes, sink the entire US fleet, destroy every US airplane and ship in the Middle East and within range of the Middle East, completely destroy all of Israel’s military capability and wipe out the military of the two-bit punk state of Saudi Arabia.

    All the sitting ducks have been set up for Russia by the arrogant and stupid Americans. Just a few minutes of Russian attack and all ability to conduct war would be stripped from the Middle East. This would be a good thing...'
     
    The only question PCR notes is whether VVP will actually choose that option...

    Unlike the silly D. Dump...who talked a big game about not telegraphing his military intentions...and now doing exactly the opposite...VVP is keeping mum...

    Fortunately for this thread...we have had a couple of good comments here as to why we are being taken to war at this moment in time...

    'buddy' @ 8 summed it up nicely...

    '...The west is at that point, if it lands on Boardwalk or Park place one more time, its broke.

    Gotta bust up the game before the West loses. throw all the pieces, cards and dice off the board, and fold the board up, put the board back in the monopoly box, else the western Pharaohs will go down; they will be the losers.

    So the war...'
     
    Some of us had seen this coming already even a few weeks ago as the Skripal stunt exploded with such ferocity...

    'Why'...'Why now...?'

    For the sake of regime change in Syria...?

    Doesn't add up...too much to lose and not enough to gain...

    War with Russia is a desperate move...there has to be a reason behind every desperate move...

    Nothing is more desperate an undertaking than war...especially war against a very powerful military...that would be off-the-scale desperation...

    Is the ponzi house of cards about to implode into its own footprint...?

    Something is up...the deep state and the moneybag elite that employs them are the only ones who really know the score as to the degree of teetering that the good ship McChicken is experiencing at any given moment...

    Yes, the current situation is a result of desperate moves by, what you call, the dying McChicken Empire. But you are neglecting that even a dying empire can pack one last big punch.

    It is a terrible situation that Putin cannot afford to react mildly to another Western attack on Syria for several good reasons, he really has to strike back now maybe most of all because he was absorbing all the smaller, provocative punches before. Thousands upon thousands of the Westerners will have to die to stop the madness and explain to the Western Orange Orangutan & Friends the limits of their international behaviour (imagine that little French shit wants to strike “only the chemical production facilities”, which do not exist in Syria).

    To all the thousands of ships at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea, some 20th century ones will be added, from the McFool’s Navy.

    I just remember Putin’s words that if you are sure that the conflict cannot be avoided, then you better be the first one to strike. Things will escalate so fast that no-one will be able to understand what just happened.

    Wars--or the threat of war--is a wonderful tool to keep the sheeple penned in the corner, bawling for relief while the psychopaths continue to run and ruin the USA and much of the West.

    If not for all these wars, False Flags and the constant slinging of anti-Semitic accusations hitting people like an artillery barrage, we might be able to think and ask some pertinent questions, like:

    1. Why does a collection of private bankers own and control our currency, forcing Americans to pay around $500 billion a year in tribute, disguised as interest?

    2. Why doesn't the US Treasury print debt-free currency, instead of letting the banksters print debt-based currency, ensnaring us in a fiscal trap that can we can never escape?

    3. Why is the Federal Reserve investing in the stock market? With their ability to print an unlimited amount of USD's--with NO oversight--can't they make the stock market dance to their tune?

    Try getting answers to these questions will put you in the trusty anti-Semitic gun sights, ensuring your political demise or even your actual death, as JFK found out.

    Thats the absolute truth. There’s no moving forward without the liquidation of these slave drivers.

    One doesn’t “audit” the FED- like that wimp and his crazy haired son attempted- it needs to come under a sustained siege and its owners and comrades vomited off this continent.

    I have already posted a list of the reserve powers of the monarch of the United Kingdom.

    This list was officially released by HM Government.


    han the Queen’s representative as head of state, the Governor General of Canada, an obscure non-entity and former astronaut, named Julie Payette.
     
    The reserve powers in Canada are the same as in the United Kingdom. They are vested in the Queen's representative in Canada, the Governor-General.

    They have not been used in modern Canadian history, but they have been used in Australia. Governor-General Kerr dismissed Gough Shitlam from office in 1975.


    Any time the Queen starts issuing decrees
     
    Royal decrees are not among the reserve powers of the monarch. Per the English Bill of Rights than you brought up only parliament can make law.

    Royal decrees are not among these powers incidentally.


    When Charles becomes king, it is likely that he will try issuing decrees and we will then see the Monarch actually placed in a padded room or otherwise disposed of, as was the Queen’s nitwit uncle, King Edward the Eighth.
     
    That said you are correct if the monarch were to use these powers in opposition to the cabinet, a de facto constitutional crisis would ensue.

    There is, of course, zero risk of that taking place since she and her entire royal house are spineless losers.

    An attack on Syria is likely to bring a Russian response.
     
    More specifically an attack on Russian forces in Syria will certainly bring a Russian response, and going on past experience, it will be a matching response. But how do you match a cruise missile attack on your forces launched from US navy ships?

    The only way, seems to be to attack the ships themselves, which would probably mean sinking some of them (which the Russians have warned they will do if necessary).

    If the Russians sink some US ships then what would Trump do? Launch an invasion of Syria or declare war on Russia? The whole situation is so hopelessly risky and pointless that the US public HAVE TO ALL get out into the streets in their cities and say NO TO WAR.

    If they don't, then they'll deserve what they get.

    An American ship sunk.
    DIGITAL (two options): escalatede-escalate.
    Escalate: (try) to destroy the force(s) which sunk the ship. Practical: escalate attacks on the Russian assets in Syria.

    The problem with the current “elites” that they are not suited for a functioning human society. They are mutants evolved for parasitizing on a human society of normal people.

    That kind of verbiage is all very well and all very useless. The fact is that the elites are the elites: they have the power and they have no intention of giving it up. So what are you going to do about it?

    And while some powerful Jews and Israelis are globalists, so are plenty of other people. Scum like Tony Blair, Theresa May, the Bush’s, the Clintons and most of the goyim sitting in Congress. So yelping about the Jews merely obscures the issue and raises the distracting howls about anti-Semitism.

    Get to the facts, identify the perps of all races and religions. Then you might begin to unravel a thread or two in the system of control under which you live.

    At what stage is the nuclear genie released? Some former military planners I read suggest Russia will need to quickly escalate to this stage due to being overwhelmed by conventional weapons. And the Russian generals know they can’t come back from vaporizing a carrier group and a U.S. base in Syria. There is no turning back.

    Your former military planners have got it wrong. At this point in time Russia is stronger on land and in the air than NATO / America. Only at sea is Russia weaker.

    Even if Syria is bombed by America / Israel its not the end of the world, because all America and Israel can do is bomb. They’re unwilling to put hundreds of thousands of boots on the ground to occupy Syria, only Turkey can do that and Turkey is not too happy with the US at present. The Syrians will just have to dig deeper bomb shelters and live underground for a while and still keep on wiping out the NATO irregulars (ISIS and what ever) until none of them is left.

    Russia can just weather the storm, take some losses (its a soldier’s job to die in combat anyway) and kill some Americans, and thereafter participate more actively in Iraq and Afghanistan. While America / NATO loves shock and awe, Russia has made the slow grind its specialty, and has transferred these techniques to the Syrians and Hezbollah.

    But if anyone uses nukes, whatever the yield, then the situation will get totally out of hand, nukes are the only way to get past the slow grind.

    {...only Turkey can do that and Turkey...}

    Yes, but Moscow will not allow that.
    Putin agreed to allow Turks to attack the Kurds and removed RuAF air cover there, to let them do it. I am pretty sure Assad also went along with Putin, because Kurds were becoming a major headache, although he can't be too happy with Turkish troops on Syrian land. But Syria at large is off limits to Turks or anybody else uninvited.

    You are right though that Erdogan is not going to help either US or Israel agenda in Syria. Erdogan has his own agenda in Syria, and there is some horse-trading going on between Putin and Erdogan behind the scenes, as evidenced by Afrin.

    Maybe.
    Or, maybe, while they are in those shelters they can't wipe anyone.And, while they are in shelters the opponents get stronger.
    One can be wiped out in shelters too. Or when leave shelters there is not much left outside.

    '...Your former military planners have got it wrong. At this point in time Russia is stronger on land and in the air than NATO / America. Only at sea is Russia weaker...'
     
    This is a somewhat simplistic take on the conventional military balance of power...

    The executive summary if you will is that the US and its vassal military is designed around the goal of military force projection far from its shores against non-peer opponents...ie a colonial enforcement type of role...

    Even during Soviet times the Russian response was mostly asymmetrical...for instance, rather than field expensive aircraft carrier groups to match the US...the Soviet response was supersonic maneuvering missiles that could be launched from aircraft, ships or subs and take out those carriers from standoff range...

    This is what makes this particular showdown so interesting...PCR is correct in stating that Russia could take out a carrier group quite easily...those weapons have been in the Soviet inventory for decades...we don't even need to think about the new Kinzhal air launched hypersonic antiship missile...

    This is a quite simple fact...which technical details I have explored previously and can again for any parties interested...

    The only question is what happens after Russia sinks a carrier group in the Med...as PCR notes in his very good article of yesterday...

    Will the US accept such a humiliating defeat...? Or will it go nuclear...?

    '...All Russia has to do to insure that the US has no choice but to accept instant defeat is to put Russian nuclear forces on red alert. Any resort by the idiots in Washington of a nuclear nature would mean the end of the United States and all of Western Europe along with the UK...'
     
    Well...this is the whole question that Putin is now wrestling with...

    Is he dealing with insane people that want to bring the world to an end...?

    PCR concludes...

    '...In my opinion the Russians will not go so far and will deny themselves a decisive victory, because they do not comprehend the total evil that is concentrated in Washington and Israel...'
     
    He may be right...but we have no way of knowing...

    What if Putin's calculus is that if he has to go toe to toe with the bully...and knows he can take him...why not pummel him senseless right off the bat...?

    China is probably the financial backer, but for how long it is willing to shoulder if Russia continue display the lacking of manly wills to retaliate once so to stop US Nato Israel dream of prolong aggression?

    USM & UK have only few casualties. Terrorists supply is unlimited, recruited & funded by Gulfs, trained by Turkey.

    But hundreds of Russian soldiers are dying including generals & pilots, Iran has declared thousands of elite guards slaughtered including senior generals & advisors, so are undeclared massive losses of Syrian SAA, Hezbollah & Iraqis fighters bearing the main blunt.

    All because Russia allow the West freedom in killing without slight resistance except a little whining & groaning like virgin girl in each rape, still wet dreaming of having a partition deals with its sweet darling West partners.

    "He [Putin] learned the ropes since 2000, when, at the dawn of his first presidential term, the Kursk submarine went down with all hands.

    "Putin stayed away from the sailors’ families, and acted callous, people said. “It had sunk”, Putin replied to the question “What happened to Kursk?”"

    This is complete nonsense. Putin went to the base and invited all the relatives to talk with him in the base hall and he stayed with them until they had exhausted their questions. He was utterly feeling and vulnerable with them and told them, "I could tell you that there's hope for your loved ones and leave with your good feelings. Or I can tell you the truth and stay with you".

    And he stayed with them.

    What evidence exists that a coalition of Brits and Jews caused the last two world wars?

    That is a good question. In fact, WW1 emerged from conflicts among many powers, all of them opportunistic and expansionist, quite prepared for wars of territorial aggrandizement. If the Brits and Jews are to be bear a special burden of blame, it is surely for obtaining American intervention, which prolonged the war and resulted in a dishonorable settlement that laid the foundation for German resentment and the Hitlerian madness.

    Specifically, it has been argued that the Jews of Wall St. feared that, without American aid, Britain would lose the war and fail to repay their debts to American bankers, thus they strove for American intervention, which the Brits naturally welcomed and facilitated, e.g., by directing the arms-carrying passenger vessel, the Lusitania, into the course of a German U-boat, which helpfully sank the ship drowning many American civilians.

    A war no one with a molecule of brain & heart wants.

    “desperate to avoid war” — as am I. And since this war can neither be won nor wished away, you have to DETER it. Whatever its failings, the old USSR seemed to understand that.

    The Jews, who run US foreign policy, may not care about American lives, but they care about survival of Israel.
     
    Israel establishes ALL policies legislated by the US Congress, and dictates all actions of the US federal government -- state and local policy being influenced more by local money, much of which is a penumbra of Israel.

    Israel wants Syria. It's that simple. Russia has frustrated that desire, and Israel's puppet, the USA, will be directed to move Russia out of the way.

    Hilarity ensues.

    After Syria, Iraq. You betcha America will do its damndest to deliver all the ME to Israel. There is, after all, an expiration date on America. Israel must use America without mercy until it is exhausted of all resources, reduced to mexicanity.

    It is not that Israel establishes America’s foreign policy. It is that the basic world view produced by WASP culture is naturally aligned with Jewish thought in most ways, especially in terms of Empire: ruling the world.

    That is so because Anglo-Saxon Puritanism was a Judaizing heresy. Judaizing heresy necessarily produces culture that not merely is pro-Jewish, but that leads people to act and think like Jews without their awareness. Like all ideas, Judaizing heresy bears fruit.

    Mr. Shamir:

    What evidence exists that a coalition of Brits and Jews caused the last two world wars?

    In 1903, the eloquent Zionist trailblazer and co-founder of the World Zionist Organization Max Nordau gave a speech where he stressed “the future world war” and the subsequent “peace conference” where “great, free, and powerful England” would help establish a Jewish homeland in Palestine.

    [MORE]

    “The whole assembly was under the spell of Nordau’s beautiful, truly poetic and exalted diction, and his exquisite, musical French delighted the hearers with an almost sensual pleasure. For a few seconds the speaker paused, and the public, absolutely intoxicated by his splendid oratory, applauded frantically. But soon Nordau asked for silence and continued:

    “‘Now this great progressive world power, England, has after the pogroms of Kishineff, in token of her sympathy with our poor people, offered through the Zionist Congress the autonomous colony of Uganda to the Jewish nation. Of course, Uganda is in Africa, and Africa is not Zion and never will be Zion, to quote Herzl’s own words.

    But Herzl knows full well that nothing is so valuable to the cause of Zionism as amicable political relations with such a power as England is, and so much more valuable as England’s main interest is concentrated in the Orient. Nowhere else is precedent as powerful as in England, and so it is most important to accept a colony out of the hands of England and create thus a precedent in our favor. Sooner or later the Oriental question will have to be solved, and the Oriental question means, naturally, also the question of Palestine.

    England, who had addressed a formal, political note to the Zionist Congress—the Zionist Congress which is pledged to the Basle program, England will have the deciding voice in the final solution of the Oriental question, and Herzl has considered it his duty to maintain valuable relations with this great and progressive power.

    Herzl knows that we stand before a tremendous upheaval of the whole world. Soon, perhaps, some kind of a world-congress will have to be called, and England, the great, free and powerful England, will then continue the work it has begun with its generous offer to the Sixth Congress.

    And if you ask me now what has Israel to do in Uganda, then let me tell you as the answer the words of the statesmen of Sardinia, only applied to our case and given in our version; let me tell you the following words as if I were showing you the rungs of a ladder leading upward and upward: Herzl, The Zionist Congress, the English Uganda proposition, the future world war, the peace conference where with the help of England a free and Jewish Palestine will be created.’

    “Like a mighty thunder these last words came to us, and we all were trembling and awestruck as if we had seen a vision of old. And in my ears were sounding the words of our great brother Achad Haam, who said of Nordau’s address at the First Congress:

    “‘I felt that one of the great old prophets was speaking to us, that his voice came down from the free hills of Judea, and our hearts were burning in us when we heard his words, filled with wonder, wisdom and vision.’”

    I'm not certain I have ever heard the name Max Nordau, and I am certain I have never read anything he wrote or said.

    Very insightful man. He recognized that the Brit Empire was a force for 'progressivism' in that it was founded against Christendom and always had been more than happy to slaughter endless numbers of white Gentile Christians and to act to exterminate their cultures.

    Anglo-Saxon Puritanism was a Judaizing heresy, and Judaizing heresy must necessarily produce pro-Jewish culture. To make that point diamond hard: Archetypal WASP Oliver Cromwell made the deal with Jews., taking Jewish money and allowing Jews back into England with special rights and privileges denied to the vast, vast majority of British Isles native Christians. And Cromwell and the Puritans made that deal precisely to keep waging war to batter to death non-WASP cultures native to the British Isles.

    You cannot solve the Jewish problem without solving the WASP problem.

    And the WASP problem is NOT one of Christianity, but of murderous heresy against historic Christianity and Christendom.

    At what stage is the nuclear genie released? Some former military planners I read suggest Russia will need to quickly escalate to this stage due to being overwhelmed by conventional weapons. And the Russian generals know they can’t come back from vaporizing a carrier group and a U.S. base in Syria. There is no turning back.

    I would disagree with that assessment. Not because the US and allies don’t have an overwhelming material superiority but that the escalation path necessitates them to attack Russia directly once the Russian bases in Syria are gone because non military escalation has reached its end and Russia has few military assets outside of Russia. Diplomatic missions have skeleton crews and there is nothing meaningful left to sanction. The only thing left is to terminate diplomatic relations and kick Russia out of SWIFT both of these Russia has anticipated and prepared for in detail.

    Herein lies the problem. In order to escalate the US is forced to attack Russia directly. How would they do it? A ground invasion is farcical. How about limited air strikes? If the US and allies attempt a few limited air strikes Russia has the stand off capability to respond in kind. The US would not survive a prolonged period where EBT cards didn’t work or long term power outages; the cities would destroy themselves. In that case tit for tat continues until the US collapses internally. Also Russia has few assets outside of Russia but the US has high value targets scattered all over the world. They aren’t really defensible and Russia could chip away at them for years slowly bleeding the US treasury dry. All while China gives the US the finger behind their back.

    How about a massive air strike? There is no way for the Russians to know whether the incoming missiles have nuclear warheads or not so the likely response would be a fully committed nuclear strike. This isn’t a desirable outcome for Russia, or america either, but it would be something they could be compelled to do through the actions of the US.

    The bottom line is that the US has no realistic expectation of defeating Russia militarily and from a economic and social standpoint time is on Russia’s side. All they have to do is wait and win the war of attrition. I’m sure the military planners are aware of this and so I question their conclusion that Russia would have any incentive to use nuclear weapons unless compelled to by a US first strike.

    The aim, surely, is (a) to humiliate Russia in Syria and then Iran, then (b) have another shot at a color revolution against a "failed" Putin regime.

    Either that, or the intention is to invade Russia before all of its new weapons systems are fully operational and in mass production.

    But that hardly makes sense when Russia has made clear its willingness to use nukes against an invader. Moreover, it is difficult to see how the US could launch and supply an invasion. There would be a huge baggage train of ships and planes, all of which seem highly vulnerable to Russian missiles.

    Well...this is yet another thoroughly disjointed effort by Shamir...

    As usual the reader is left asking...'what's your point...?'

    Even the Flaker at least presents some kind of coherent thesis...silly as it may usually be...

    ...while Shamir is perfectly content to throw up some Yodaesque flakes of pseudo-wisdom...and leave it at that...

    The article does present some useful factoids and observations...such as the apparent severity and perhaps disproportionality of the Russian diplomat expulsions...didn't know these nuances and appreciate this info...if accurate...

    Also the useful reminder of the Med Sea showdown in 2013...when Obama backed down at the last moment...

    But then Yoda Shamir veers off into the 'Jewish question' and 'white nationalism' to tie the whole bundle together...?

    ...which has what exactly to do with the price of bananas...?

    [Other than Shamir playing to his base...]

    As for the Russians being 'flabbergasted'...well that is certainly useful now isn't it...?

    Personally I don't think 'flabbergast' plays much of a role in Putin's repertoire...and we will see just what VVP's move will be if Dump decides to start a war against Russian ally Syria...as he seems intent on doing...

    The bigger question here is why is this showdown being forced by the McChicken Empire at this precise moment in time...?

    Surely it has nothing to do with Syria...that train left the station long ago...even assuming that Dump and the coalition of dwarfs he is assembling launches a Very Big military assault on Syria...the chances of changing the reality on the ground are slim to none...

    And that's even if we assume that the Russian military response is measured or even just symbolic...

    However...I doubt the Russian response to an attempt to actually mug Syria is going to be anything but measured...

    When the missiles start flying the only calculus that counts is that of military capability...not the 'Jewish question' or anything else for that matter...

    As PCR notes in an excellent and far more salient essay from yesterday...

    '...The Russians know that they can, at will within a few minutes, sink the entire US fleet, destroy every US airplane and ship in the Middle East and within range of the Middle East, completely destroy all of Israel’s military capability and wipe out the military of the two-bit punk state of Saudi Arabia.

    All the sitting ducks have been set up for Russia by the arrogant and stupid Americans. Just a few minutes of Russian attack and all ability to conduct war would be stripped from the Middle East. This would be a good thing...'
     
    The only question PCR notes is whether VVP will actually choose that option...

    Unlike the silly D. Dump...who talked a big game about not telegraphing his military intentions...and now doing exactly the opposite...VVP is keeping mum...

    Fortunately for this thread...we have had a couple of good comments here as to why we are being taken to war at this moment in time...

    'buddy' @ 8 summed it up nicely...

    '...The west is at that point, if it lands on Boardwalk or Park place one more time, its broke.

    Gotta bust up the game before the West loses. throw all the pieces, cards and dice off the board, and fold the board up, put the board back in the monopoly box, else the western Pharaohs will go down; they will be the losers.

    So the war...'
     
    Some of us had seen this coming already even a few weeks ago as the Skripal stunt exploded with such ferocity...

    'Why'...'Why now...?'

    For the sake of regime change in Syria...?

    Doesn't add up...too much to lose and not enough to gain...

    War with Russia is a desperate move...there has to be a reason behind every desperate move...

    Nothing is more desperate an undertaking than war...especially war against a very powerful military...that would be off-the-scale desperation...

    Is the ponzi house of cards about to implode into its own footprint...?

    Something is up...the deep state and the moneybag elite that employs them are the only ones who really know the score as to the degree of teetering that the good ship McChicken is experiencing at any given moment...

    Yes, destruction of Russia is the main objective, not Syria, although control of Syria is an objective.

    Once Russia has been bust up into a collection of corruptionistans to be looted at will be oligarchs of both east and west (with kick-backs to the Poroshenkite satraps), NATO will advance to the borders of China, and China will be invited to submit to the New World Ordure.

    The destruction of the self-governing, democratic nation state will then be complete. Rule will pass to the international Money Power, acting through multinational and global institutions such as the WTO, the World Bank, NATO, the EeYoo, etc.

    But, as Putin has stated, Russia sees no value in a world without Russia, which means a world of nation states, so look for any open conflict to escalate with not limit short of all out nuclear war, in which connection, here’s Peter Ford, former UK Ambassador to Syria, on the current approach to armageddon.

    It is not that Israel establishes America's foreign policy. It is that the basic world view produced by WASP culture is naturally aligned with Jewish thought in most ways, especially in terms of Empire: ruling the world.

    That is so because Anglo-Saxon Puritanism was a Judaizing heresy. Judaizing heresy necessarily produces culture that not merely is pro-Jewish, but that leads people to act and think like Jews without their awareness. Like all ideas, Judaizing heresy bears fruit.

    You cannot solve the Jewish problem without also solving the WASP problem.

    Forget the religious angle. You think people like the Clintons, the Bushes, the Obamas, the Blairs, and the Mays are influenced by religious belief? No, their religion is money and power and no outcome could be more rewarding in both money and power than the attainment of global empire. The Brits are involved, not because of any religious idea, but only because they still have sway with the world’s greatest, if rapidly declining, imperial power.

    You are missing the point, which is predictable in the Anglosphere.

    Judaizing heresy produces pro-Jewish culture. Down the line, people can be, and will be, atheists and still follow the cultural imperatives.

    That's the same reason that atheist Jews, agnostic Jews, Deist Jews, Zen Buddhist Jews, Judaizing Protestant Jews, Ancient Astronaut Aliens Jews, and Satanist Jews all produce and promote basic Jewish thought and culture - in every continent.

    Your mental gymnastics are simply magnificient, and quite amusing to be honest.

    The above quote of yours brought to my mind an excerpt from the 2006 paper, The Israel Lobby written by Harvard’s JFK School of Government professor of International Affairs Stephen Walt and Chicago University professor of Political Sciences John Mearsheimer in which they explain how the Lobby effectively makes politicians dance to its tune:

    AIPAC itself, however, forms the core of the Lobby’s influence in Congress. Its success is due to its ability to reward legislators and congressional candidates who support its agenda, and to punish those who challenge it. Money is critical to US elections (as the scandal over the lobbyist Jack Abramoff’s shady dealings reminds us), and AIPAC makes sure that its friends get strong financial support from the many pro-Israel political action committees. Anyone who is seen as hostile to Israel can be sure that AIPAC will direct campaign contributions to his or her political opponents.
     
    https://www.lrb.co.uk/v28/n06/john-mearsheimer/the-israel-lobby

    And this article by Philip Weiss


    At Lobelog, Jim Lobe and Eli Clifton say bluntly, the choice satisfied Trump’s biggest donor. “Adelson, a huge supporter of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, likely played a critical role in Bolton’s ascendancy.”
     
    http://www.unz.com/article/trump-appointed-bolton-because-republicans-desperately-need-adelsons-money/

    And, even Jews themselves admit Jewish money makes or brakes US politicos.

    https://www.timesofisrael.com/jewish-donors-filling-candidates-war-chests-especially-clintons/

    I am curious to see what mental gymnastics are you able to come up with - after reading that well researched paper to which I am linking to above and also knowing how the pro Israel donor Adelson single handedly had the war hawk, pro Iraq war, pro Iran and Syria US military intervention, arch neocon Bolton apointed as National Security adviser - to explain the curious fact being that anyone following the money, more often than not, will find pro Israel Jewish donors at the end of the trail, be it Adelson, Saban or Rothschild.

    I would disagree with that assessment. Not because the US and allies don't have an overwhelming material superiority but that the escalation path necessitates them to attack Russia directly once the Russian bases in Syria are gone because non military escalation has reached its end and Russia has few military assets outside of Russia. Diplomatic missions have skeleton crews and there is nothing meaningful left to sanction. The only thing left is to terminate diplomatic relations and kick Russia out of SWIFT both of these Russia has anticipated and prepared for in detail.

    Herein lies the problem. In order to escalate the US is forced to attack Russia directly. How would they do it? A ground invasion is farcical. How about limited air strikes? If the US and allies attempt a few limited air strikes Russia has the stand off capability to respond in kind. The US would not survive a prolonged period where EBT cards didn't work or long term power outages; the cities would destroy themselves. In that case tit for tat continues until the US collapses internally. Also Russia has few assets outside of Russia but the US has high value targets scattered all over the world. They aren't really defensible and Russia could chip away at them for years slowly bleeding the US treasury dry. All while China gives the US the finger behind their back.

    How about a massive air strike? There is no way for the Russians to know whether the incoming missiles have nuclear warheads or not so the likely response would be a fully committed nuclear strike. This isn't a desirable outcome for Russia, or america either, but it would be something they could be compelled to do through the actions of the US.

    The bottom line is that the US has no realistic expectation of defeating Russia militarily and from a economic and social standpoint time is on Russia's side. All they have to do is wait and win the war of attrition. I'm sure the military planners are aware of this and so I question their conclusion that Russia would have any incentive to use nuclear weapons unless compelled to by a US first strike.

    The aim, surely, is (a) to humiliate Russia in Syria and then Iran, then (b) have another shot at a color revolution against a “failed” Putin regime.

    Either that, or the intention is to invade Russia before all of its new weapons systems are fully operational and in mass production.

    But that hardly makes sense when Russia has made clear its willingness to use nukes against an invader. Moreover, it is difficult to see how the US could launch and supply an invasion. There would be a huge baggage train of ships and planes, all of which seem highly vulnerable to Russian missiles.

    An attack on Syria is likely to bring a Russian response.
     
    More specifically an attack on Russian forces in Syria will certainly bring a Russian response, and going on past experience, it will be a matching response. But how do you match a cruise missile attack on your forces launched from US navy ships?

    The only way, seems to be to attack the ships themselves, which would probably mean sinking some of them (which the Russians have warned they will do if necessary).

    If the Russians sink some US ships then what would Trump do? Launch an invasion of Syria or declare war on Russia? The whole situation is so hopelessly risky and pointless that the US public HAVE TO ALL get out into the streets in their cities and say NO TO WAR.

    If they don't, then they'll deserve what they get.

    War is obsolete, the elites know that, East and West, what keeps it standing is the belief system. In the layered societies in the West, and East, the commoner still believes in God, King and Queen, war and peace, and “money”.

    If the street would have a good laugh, and have the figureheads crumble with shame, the elites then will realize the gaming must be changed. There is no better “movie” then what goes for real nowadays.

    Your former military planners have got it wrong. At this point in time Russia is stronger on land and in the air than NATO / America. Only at sea is Russia weaker.

    Even if Syria is bombed by America / Israel its not the end of the world, because all America and Israel can do is bomb. They're unwilling to put hundreds of thousands of boots on the ground to occupy Syria, only Turkey can do that and Turkey is not too happy with the US at present. The Syrians will just have to dig deeper bomb shelters and live underground for a while and still keep on wiping out the NATO irregulars (ISIS and what ever) until none of them is left.

    Russia can just weather the storm, take some losses (its a soldier's job to die in combat anyway) and kill some Americans, and thereafter participate more actively in Iraq and Afghanistan. While America / NATO loves shock and awe, Russia has made the slow grind its specialty, and has transferred these techniques to the Syrians and Hezbollah.

    But if anyone uses nukes, whatever the yield, then the situation will get totally out of hand, nukes are the only way to get past the slow grind.

    The Syrians will just have to dig deeper bomb shelters and live underground for a while and still keep on wiping out the NATO irregulars (ISIS and what ever) until none of them is left.

    Maybe.
    Or, maybe, while they are in those shelters they can’t wipe anyone.And, while they are in shelters the opponents get stronger.
    One can be wiped out in shelters too. Or when leave shelters there is not much left outside.

    Russia can just weather the storm, take some losses (its a soldier’s job to die in combat anyway) and kill some Americans, and thereafter participate more actively in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Say, for a month?

    If the Viet Cong could survive underground while the Americans bombed everything above ground, and then emerge to fight when the bombardment stopped, then the Syrians can survive and fight that way also. But no nukes were used in Vietnam.

    Plus the US would have no air superiority were Russia to bring more anti aircraft weapons to theatre, so its only cruise missiles and conventional ballistic missiles to worry about.

    If Syria were to survive such an onslaught while at the same time subjecting Israel to similar bombardment with Russian cruise and Iskander ballistic missiles, Israel would cave in first. All the Jews and Saudi's would run away to America. America’s allies are not as tough and hardened as Russia’s allies.

    Russia just needs to stalemate the situation, and then wait for America's financial drag to do the rest. Slow grind.

    Is everyone here insane. Britain has a constitutional monarch with no more power than the Queen's representative as head of state, the Governor General of Canada, an obscure non-entity and former astronaut, named Julie Payette.

    Any time the Queen starts issuing decrees, she will be politely but firmly confined to a padded room. When Charles becomes king, it is likely that he will try issuing decrees and we will then see the Monarch actually placed in a padded room or otherwise disposed of, as was the Queen's nitwit uncle, King Edward the Eighth.

    Is everyone here insane. Britain has a constitutional monarch with no more power

    How does it feel to be wrong?

    I have already posted a list of the reserve powers of the monarch of the United Kingdom.

    This list was officially released by HM Government.

    han the Queen’s representative as head of state, the Governor General of Canada, an obscure non-entity and former astronaut, named Julie Payette.

    The reserve powers in Canada are the same as in the United Kingdom. They are vested in the Queen’s representative in Canada, the Governor-General.

    They have not been used in modern Canadian history, but they have been used in Australia. Governor-General Kerr dismissed Gough Shitlam from office in 1975.

    Any time the Queen starts issuing decrees

    Royal decrees are not among the reserve powers of the monarch. Per the English Bill of Rights than you brought up only parliament can make law.

    Royal decrees are not among these powers incidentally.

    When Charles becomes king, it is likely that he will try issuing decrees and we will then see the Monarch actually placed in a padded room or otherwise disposed of, as was the Queen’s nitwit uncle, King Edward the Eighth.

    That said you are correct if the monarch were to use these powers in opposition to the cabinet, a de facto constitutional crisis would ensue.

    There is, of course, zero risk of that taking place since she and her entire royal house are spineless losers.

    The only Shitlam here is you. The late Geoff Whitlam was possibly the best and the most loved Prime Minister Australia ever had. What the Queen did then, and it was not really the Queen then CIA, was dismiss a democratically elected leader of a country, which was similar to the Chilean coup organised by the same organisation.

    BTW, I am definitely not left-wing and although Whitlam was a left-wing leader I have great respect for him. Whitlam saw perfectly what was going on in the World at the time and resisted it, a true leader. There has not been any other leader like that anywhere in the West since de Gaulle.

    I honestly do not know where such shitlams like you pop out of.

The Deep State and their echo chamber in the media ensure that a steady stream of public scandals will keep Trump shell-shocked by his many sins. He will do what he's told. John Bolton will soon occupy the position of de-facto president while Trump will be locked in the White House basement.

    “John Bolton will soon occupy the position of de-facto president ”

    The article does present some useful factoids and observations...such as the apparent severity and perhaps disproportionality of the Russian diplomat expulsions...didn't know these nuances and appreciate this info...if accurate...

    I agree with almost all of what you said. I am no expert, but I believe the weak card in the ponzi scheme is the petro-dollar.

    When the dollar went off of the gold standard, the US convinced the Saudis to sell oil in dollars only. This strengthened the dollar globally. Maybe that’s why the Saudis are part of the coalition.

    Apparently Saddam and Gaddafi threatened this arrangement and the US executed them for it. Perhaps Assad backed by Russia is just as great a threat. It looks like Iraq all over again.

    2. Why doesn’t the US Treasury print debt-free currency, instead of letting the banksters print debt-based currency, ensnaring us in a fiscal trap that can we can never escape?

    Is the petro-dollar the only thing keeping the dollar credit worthy? What happens when the dollar loses its luster?

    I have now read Paul Roberts' Unz review article. He reports that on April 20, nine US ships will have reached the Syrian coast where the Russian army is based. If Russia strikes, that would be the date of Armageddon. There appears to be a media black out on the events in Gaza and Syria. Will mass global panic start manifesting as news leaks out? Are there patriotic military officers left in the American high command or are they in paralysis?

    That kind of verbiage is all very well and all very useless. The fact is that the elites are the elites: they have the power and they have no intention of giving it up. So what are you going to do about it?

    And while some powerful Jews and Israelis are globalists, so are plenty of other people. Scum like Tony Blair, Theresa May, the Bush's, the Clintons and most of the goyim sitting in Congress.

    And, in what way has that changed how Israhell leads the western leaders by their collective balls? The only reason is because the goals of both satanic maniacs, the angloscum and the zioscum, are exactly the same. World domination, and regional domination, wherever that is applicable.

    In 1903, the eloquent Zionist trailblazer and co-founder of the World Zionist Organization Max Nordau gave a speech where he stressed "the future world war" and the subsequent "peace conference" where "great, free, and powerful England" would help establish a Jewish homeland in Palestine.

    “The whole assembly was under the spell of Nordau’s beautiful, truly poetic and exalted diction, and his exquisite, musical French delighted the hearers with an almost sensual pleasure. For a few seconds the speaker paused, and the public, absolutely intoxicated by his splendid oratory, applauded frantically. But soon Nordau asked for silence and continued:



    “‘Now this great progressive world power, England, has after the pogroms of Kishineff, in token of her sympathy with our poor people, offered through the Zionist Congress the autonomous colony of Uganda to the Jewish nation. Of course, Uganda is in Africa, and Africa is not Zion and never will be Zion, to quote Herzl’s own words.

    But Herzl knows full well that nothing is so valuable to the cause of Zionism as amicable political relations with such a power as England is, and so much more valuable as England’s main interest is concentrated in the Orient. Nowhere else is precedent as powerful as in England, and so it is most important to accept a colony out of the hands of England and create thus a precedent in our favor. Sooner or later the Oriental question will have to be solved, and the Oriental question means, naturally, also the question of Palestine.

    England, who had addressed a formal, political note to the Zionist Congress—the Zionist Congress which is pledged to the Basle program, England will have the deciding voice in the final solution of the Oriental question, and Herzl has considered it his duty to maintain valuable relations with this great and progressive power.

    Herzl knows that we stand before a tremendous upheaval of the whole world. Soon, perhaps, some kind of a world-congress will have to be called, and England, the great, free and powerful England, will then continue the work it has begun with its generous offer to the Sixth Congress.

    And if you ask me now what has Israel to do in Uganda, then let me tell you as the answer the words of the statesmen of Sardinia, only applied to our case and given in our version; let me tell you the following words as if I were showing you the rungs of a ladder leading upward and upward: Herzl, The Zionist Congress, the English Uganda proposition, the future world war, the peace conference where with the help of England a free and Jewish Palestine will be created.’
     
    “Like a mighty thunder these last words came to us, and we all were trembling and awestruck as if we had seen a vision of old. And in my ears were sounding the words of our great brother Achad Haam, who said of Nordau’s address at the First Congress:

    “‘I felt that one of the great old prophets was speaking to us, that his voice came down from the free hills of Judea, and our hearts were burning in us when we heard his words, filled with wonder, wisdom and vision.’”
     
    “WHEN PROPHETS SPEAK"

    By Litman Rosenthal
     
    http://www.jrbooksonline.com/Intl_Jew_full_version/ij14.htm

    Since you asked.

    I’m not certain I have ever heard the name Max Nordau, and I am certain I have never read anything he wrote or said.

    Very insightful man. He recognized that the Brit Empire was a force for ‘progressivism’ in that it was founded against Christendom and always had been more than happy to slaughter endless numbers of white Gentile Christians and to act to exterminate their cultures.

    Anglo-Saxon Puritanism was a Judaizing heresy, and Judaizing heresy must necessarily produce pro-Jewish culture. To make that point diamond hard: Archetypal WASP Oliver Cromwell made the deal with Jews., taking Jewish money and allowing Jews back into England with special rights and privileges denied to the vast, vast majority of British Isles native Christians. And Cromwell and the Puritans made that deal precisely to keep waging war to batter to death non-WASP cultures native to the British Isles.

    You cannot solve the Jewish problem without solving the WASP problem.

    And the WASP problem is NOT one of Christianity, but of murderous heresy against historic Christianity and Christendom.

    It is not that Max Nordau, president of the Zionist congress at the turn of the century, was that insightful, it is that the Zionists created the events that they wanted to happen. World War I and World War II served Zionist ends.
    In WW I Palestine was taken from Turkey with the League of Nations "legalizing" the "Mandate System" and given to the Jews in exchange for delivering America as a military ally to Britain (instead of America becoming an ally of Germany). World War II destroyed and punished the European nations further and created the United Nations which officially created Israel and convinced the reluctant Jews to go there.
    War between Russia and America is an opportunistic means to destroy the abominable non-Jewish entities, to the extent that they are non-Jewish, and to seize Syria and Iraq under cover of chaos. If some of the Am Haaretz are eliminated, nobody ever cared about what happened to them. They are just as expendable as the Goyim.

    "desperate to avoid war" -- as am I. And since this war can neither be won nor wished away, you have to DETER it. Whatever its failings, the old USSR seemed to understand that. But "Putin's Russia", for all the theater, is seen as a paper tiger by everyone that counts. I'm not even saying the perception is right or wrong, but allowing the perception to persist is a terrible failing of the Putin government.

    You’re obviously too emotional, for whatever reason, to see the situation clearly. Putin’s restraint was widely supported both domestically and internationally – even among “people that count”.

    That said, the time for restraint might be over.

Or has Russian passivity emboldened their enemies? I think the record of the past years speaks for itself.

    Forget the religious angle. You think people like the Clintons, the Bushes, the Obamas, the Blairs, and the Mays are influenced by religious belief? No, their religion is money and power and no outcome could be more rewarding in both money and power than the attainment of global empire. The Brits are involved, not because of any religious idea, but only because they still have sway with the world's greatest, if rapidly declining, imperial power.

    You are missing the point, which is predictable in the Anglosphere.

    Judaizing heresy produces pro-Jewish culture. Down the line, people can be, and will be, atheists and still follow the cultural imperatives.

    That’s the same reason that atheist Jews, agnostic Jews, Deist Jews, Zen Buddhist Jews, Judaizing Protestant Jews, Ancient Astronaut Aliens Jews, and Satanist Jews all produce and promote basic Jewish thought and culture – in every continent.

    Some people have Jews on the brain. Jews have a culture that adapts them well to life as minorities within an alien culture, but insofar as Jewish culture is ethnocentric and exploitive of out-groups it is totally alien to the Western mindset, which rests on a post-religious residue of Christian thought. Moreover, what you call Jewish thought and culture, is alien to many, probably the great majority, of today's Western Jews.

    You know who Mike Pence is right? Cause he's next in line..
    Anyway could this be the reason they're so horny to attack now?

    Russia controls Douma, guarantees impartial investigation; that makes US attack MORE likely

    http://theduran.com/russia-controls-douma-guarantees-impartial-investigation-us-attack-more-likely/

    As a result of the total surrender of the Jihadis previously in control of Douma on Sunday, it is the Russian military who this time are in control of the alleged crime scene.

    This has put the Russians in a position where for the first time they are able both to invite the OPCW inspectors to attend the crime scene and to provide them with protection if they are there, whilst at the same time monitoring and supervising their work.

    If the chemical attack on Douma really is fictitious – as the Russians insist it is – then for the first time their control of the crime scene puts the Russians in a strong position to prove it.

    The point was made forcefully by Russia’s UN ambassador Vassily Nebenzia at the UN Security Council session today, and it also received indirect backing from the UN Secretariat, who admitted that they could not confirm that a chemical weapons attack had happened, and who called upon all sides to show restraint until a proper investigation of the incident had taken place.

    Nebenzia followed this up by inviting OPCW inspectors to the scene as early as tomorrow Tuesday.

    By now it should surprise no-one that the fact that the Russians are in control of the crime scene and may on this occasion be able to prove conclusively that no chemical weapons attack happened in Douma, instead of deterring a US attack, is actually making it more likely.

    This is because the credibility of the various ‘witnesses’ to the Douma attack – who are of course the same witnesses who were previously ‘witnesses’ to the 2013 East Ghouta and the 2017 Khan Sheikhoun attacks – is now on the line, as is the credibility of those Western governments – first and foremost the US government – who believed or who pretended to believe them.

    I would add that not only is the credibility of the US government and of other Western governments on the line. So is the credibility of Western journalists who also believed or pretended to believe the ‘witnesses’.

    The Zionist entity of “Israel” was supposedly set up to solve the Jewish Question. Predictably, it did no such thing, the creation of this entity only making matters much worse.
    In practice, we’ve ended up with powerful Zionist Diasporas, best exemplified by the Zio Power Configuration in the ZUS, highly networked, and their Mafia “state”. As their entity was set up by sheer violation of international law and the UN charter, and through violent ethnic cleansing, terrorism and periodic wars, “Israel” is a recipe for disaster… not only for the ME region, but possibly, for the World.
    The artificial Zio entity of Israel should be dissolved.

    An example of organized Diaspora Jews creating serious problems in connection with their “state”, even between the 2 major nuclear powers, is the conflict between the ZUS & Russia, which has been ongoing for a while and is possibly coming to a head in Syria.
    The Neocons Versus Russia

    http://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/2008/08/16/the-neocons-versus-russia/

    Why the neocon(a Jewish political movement) hostility toward Russia? We could certainly imagine that if Russia was controlled by the Israel Lobby and Jewish interests in the same way that the United States is, this would not be happening. Indeed, a major neocon complaint is that Russia delayed sanctions against Israel’s arch-enemy Iran and has supplied Iran with nuclear material as well as weaponry designed to protect its nuclear installations.

    Quite simply, we think that neocon hostility stems from the fact that Russia under Vladimir Putin proved to be far more nationalistic than is good for the Jews or for Israel. A landmark event was Putin’s crackdown on the oligarchs — that small, overwhelmingly Jewish group of tycoons that came to control the industrial base of the USSR during the shift to capitalism

    No, the Zionist movement does not date from the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 AD. You could say it starts with Ezra and the destruction of the First Temple in 586 BC. But more accurately, it dates from the first partition of Poland between Prussia, Austria, and Russia in 1772. Before that there was a sovereign Jewish Rabbinic state within Poland, alongside a Catholic Royal state. Poland was a condominium of the two powers created when Vytautus the Lithuanian warlord brought Jewish Khazar mercenaries from the Crimea to Lithuania in 1392 to be landlords to the Christian Serfs. They came on condition of autonomy, and that grew into a kingdom within a kingdom which came to an end when Poland, Catholic and Jewish disappeared in 1772. Zionism was one of the Jewish responses to the dissolution of the sovereignty of the Jewish State within Poland.

    This does not contradict what I said at all. The power to declare war and peace is not the power to make law.

    See here: https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2003/oct/21/uk.freedomofinformation

    Domestic Affairs

    The appointment and dismissal of ministers;

    The summoning, prorogation and dissolution of Parliament;

    Royal assent to bills;

    The appointment and regulation of the civil service;

    The commissioning of officers in the armed forces;

    Directing the disposition of the armed forces in the UK;

    Appointment of Queen's Counsel;

    Issue and withdrawal of passports;

    Prerogative of mercy. (Used to apply in capital punishment cases. Still used, eg to remedy errors in sentence calculation)

    Granting honours;

    Creation of corporations by Charter;

    Foreign Affairs

    The making of treaties;

    Declaration of war;

    Deployment of armed forces overseas;

    Recognition of foreign states;

    Accreditation and reception of diplomats.
     

    As you can see the monarch has quite considerable legal power, and the monarch's power to refuse the royal assent means that Parliament cannot reduce this authority without the monarch's consent. The only option would be a coup d'etat, potentially causing a civil war.

    That the monarch does not exercise these powers shows how truly pathetic Britain's ruling house is.

    The inability to issue royal decrees, raise taxes, or supply are the real constraints on royal power and cannot be gotten around without the consent of Parliament or a royalist coup d'etat.

    The monarch could've gotten around this prior to 1911 simply by stacking the House of Lords with cronies, but not only did George V consent to his own Waterloo but he was an active participant in destroying his own potential to take over parliament.

    What a loser.

    Everything you say about the powers of the British monarch is incorrect.

    What you seem not to know is that there was a civil war between the crown and parliament. The Parliamentary forces won and axed off the king’s head. Subsequently the monarchy was restored but the conflict between crown and parliament resumed, resulting in a revolution.

    The King, fearing for his neck, fled to France where he remained until his death. Meantime, In England, a Dutch invasion force headed by William of Orange marched on London to the approbation of the crowds, and with the support of the head of the British army, Winston Churchill’s ancestor, the Duke of Malborough.

    Following Williams installation as monarch, there were negotiations between the crown and parliament resulting in the Act of Settlement, which legally and permanently restricted the power of the monarch and made parliament permanently supreme.

    The fact that much is done in the name of the crown does not mean that the crown wields effective power. Just as most of Canada is owned in the name of the crown it does not mean that Canadians pay rent to QEII for the use of her land. In reality, it is the Federal and Provincial governments who wield the power of the Crown in Canada, as does the Parliament in Westminster, in the UK.

    The role of the monarchy is mainly to serve as a focus for national loyalty. As Baghot, author of the British Constitution (in 1867) wrote, “men are ruled not by their imagination, but by their lack of it.” Hence the need for the monarch as a unifying symbol of power whereas real power is, as Baghot put it,wielded by the man on the Clapham omnibus (i.e., the educated middle class of Baghot’s day, the people who made up the top ranks of the Foreign Office, the Treasury, etc., etc.) equivalent to today’s deep state.

    I certainly did not dispute the supremacy of parliament, which is codified in the English Bill of Rights.

    I only described the reserve powers of the monarch, which do indeed exist.

    In practice, these powers have only been exercised at the request of the cabinet in the 20th century, with the exception of the appoint of Alec Douglas-Home as prime minister.

    They are today as a practical matter a convenient way for the cabinet to avoid submitting government policy to parliamentary votes.

    But they do exist, and I find it strange that you dispute they exist. Pride perhaps?

    Yes, this is the case in practice. But legally, the Crown does have a considerable amount of power (though not the power to make law, tax, or supply).

    And this power was actually exercised in recent history in Australia with the dismissal of Gough Shitlam, the worst prime minister in Australian history.

    The role of the monarchy is mainly to serve as a focus for national loyalty. As Baghot, author of the British Constitution (in 1867) wrote, “men are ruled not by their imagination, but by their lack of it.” Hence the need for the monarch as a unifying symbol of power whereas real power is, as Baghot put it,wielded by the man on the Clapham omnibus (i.e., the educated middle class of Baghot’s day, the people who made up the top ranks of the Foreign Office, the Treasury, etc., etc.) equivalent to today’s deep state.
     

    In practice, yes, the monarch is simply the official national celebrity of Britain. The monarch's practical role in Canada, Australia, NZ, etc. is even lesser than that.

    But this is only because the House of Windsor is completely spineless and pathetic.

    A real monarch would initiate a plan to destroy parliamentary control and employ his Royal Prerogative to do so.

    And don't forget that in Bagehot's time Prince Albert actually exerted real power at times. Without Prince Albert's intervention it's quite likely that the Trent Affair would've led to war between Britain and America.

    Which of course proves that Prince Albert was just another idiot in a long line of British royal cucks. War with America in 1862 was in Britain's self-interest. Failure to declare war sealed Britain's fate as the world's leading power.

    And the reason war was not declared is even more pathetic. Britain had decided to worship negroes for some baffling reason.

She had negative views of mass Muslim migrations to France.

    In the 1980s the American Dem Presidential leader Garry Hart was taken down in a sex scandal with a pretty blonde Donna Rice I think was her name - the affair was done on a boat called "Monkey Business". Lib Dem women voters took down Garry Hart because his mistress was a typical pretty young blond.

    My Russian Aunt Sonia thought this was ridiculous and noted that "You Americans are so uptight about these things as our French President Mitterand has a mistresses, everyone knows this and French people understand because Mitterand's wife is a very ugly Communist"

    Is everyone here insane. Britain has a constitutional monarch with no more power
     
    How does it feel to be wrong?

    I have already posted a list of the reserve powers of the monarch of the United Kingdom.

    This list was officially released by HM Government.


    han the Queen’s representative as head of state, the Governor General of Canada, an obscure non-entity and former astronaut, named Julie Payette.
     
    The reserve powers in Canada are the same as in the United Kingdom. They are vested in the Queen's representative in Canada, the Governor-General.

    They have not been used in modern Canadian history, but they have been used in Australia. Governor-General Kerr dismissed Gough Shitlam from office in 1975.


    Any time the Queen starts issuing decrees
     
    Royal decrees are not among the reserve powers of the monarch. Per the English Bill of Rights than you brought up only parliament can make law.

    Royal decrees are not among these powers incidentally.


    When Charles becomes king, it is likely that he will try issuing decrees and we will then see the Monarch actually placed in a padded room or otherwise disposed of, as was the Queen’s nitwit uncle, King Edward the Eighth.
     
    That said you are correct if the monarch were to use these powers in opposition to the cabinet, a de facto constitutional crisis would ensue.

    There is, of course, zero risk of that taking place since she and her entire royal house are spineless losers.

    May, Clinton, Merkel & Blair are all power hungry buggers partly coerced(by Jew owned media) and partly willingly working for the Jews out of self preservation.

    Bush was a moron misled by Jews.

    Without the Jews, they would all likely turn out to be very different leaders, probably not half as bad.

    Jews run the world, and they're running it to the ground.

    Your former military planners have got it wrong. At this point in time Russia is stronger on land and in the air than NATO / America. Only at sea is Russia weaker.

    Even if Syria is bombed by America / Israel its not the end of the world, because all America and Israel can do is bomb. They're unwilling to put hundreds of thousands of boots on the ground to occupy Syria, only Turkey can do that and Turkey is not too happy with the US at present. The Syrians will just have to dig deeper bomb shelters and live underground for a while and still keep on wiping out the NATO irregulars (ISIS and what ever) until none of them is left.

    Russia can just weather the storm, take some losses (its a soldier's job to die in combat anyway) and kill some Americans, and thereafter participate more actively in Iraq and Afghanistan. While America / NATO loves shock and awe, Russia has made the slow grind its specialty, and has transferred these techniques to the Syrians and Hezbollah.

    But if anyone uses nukes, whatever the yield, then the situation will get totally out of hand, nukes are the only way to get past the slow grind.

    ‘…Your former military planners have got it wrong. At this point in time Russia is stronger on land and in the air than NATO / America. Only at sea is Russia weaker…’

    This is a somewhat simplistic take on the conventional military balance of power…

    The executive summary if you will is that the US and its vassal military is designed around the goal of military force projection far from its shores against non-peer opponents…ie a colonial enforcement type of role…

    Even during Soviet times the Russian response was mostly asymmetrical…for instance, rather than field expensive aircraft carrier groups to match the US…the Soviet response was supersonic maneuvering missiles that could be launched from aircraft, ships or subs and take out those carriers from standoff range…

    This is what makes this particular showdown so interesting…PCR is correct in stating that Russia could take out a carrier group quite easily…those weapons have been in the Soviet inventory for decades…we don’t even need to think about the new Kinzhal air launched hypersonic antiship missile…

    This is a quite simple fact…which technical details I have explored previously and can again for any parties interested…

    The only question is what happens after Russia sinks a carrier group in the Med…as PCR notes in his very good article of yesterday…

    Will the US accept such a humiliating defeat…? Or will it go nuclear…?

    ‘…All Russia has to do to insure that the US has no choice but to accept instant defeat is to put Russian nuclear forces on red alert. Any resort by the idiots in Washington of a nuclear nature would mean the end of the United States and all of Western Europe along with the UK…’

    Well…this is the whole question that Putin is now wrestling with…

    Is he dealing with insane people that want to bring the world to an end…?

    PCR concludes…

    ‘…In my opinion the Russians will not go so far and will deny themselves a decisive victory, because they do not comprehend the total evil that is concentrated in Washington and Israel…’

    He may be right…but we have no way of knowing…

    What if Putin’s calculus is that if he has to go toe to toe with the bully…and knows he can take him…why not pummel him senseless right off the bat…?

    You are missing the point, which is predictable in the Anglosphere.

    Judaizing heresy produces pro-Jewish culture. Down the line, people can be, and will be, atheists and still follow the cultural imperatives.

    That's the same reason that atheist Jews, agnostic Jews, Deist Jews, Zen Buddhist Jews, Judaizing Protestant Jews, Ancient Astronaut Aliens Jews, and Satanist Jews all produce and promote basic Jewish thought and culture - in every continent.

    … atheist Jews, agnostic Jews, Deist Jews, Zen Buddhist Jews, Judaizing Protestant Jews, Ancient Astronaut Aliens Jews, and Satanist Jews all produce and promote basic Jewish thought and culture – in every continent.

    Now you just have to tell us what “basic Jewish thought and culture” is. Like,did Jews invent western mathematics, did they invent the steam engine, did they invent soccer, skiing, tennis or football, did they create the great artistic and literary masterpieces of Europe? Did they …..

    Some people have Jews on the brain. Jews have a culture that adapts them well to life as minorities within an alien culture, but insofar as Jewish culture is ethnocentric and exploitive of out-groups it is totally alien to the Western mindset, which rests on a post-religious residue of Christian thought. Moreover, what you call Jewish thought and culture, is alien to many, probably the great majority, of today’s Western Jews.

    Forget the religious angle. You think people like the Clintons, the Bushes, the Obamas, the Blairs, and the Mays are influenced by religious belief? No, their religion is money and power and no outcome could be more rewarding in both money and power than the attainment of global empire. The Brits are involved, not because of any religious idea, but only because they still have sway with the world's greatest, if rapidly declining, imperial power.

    Your mental gymnastics are simply magnificient, and quite amusing to be honest.

    You think people like the Clintons, the Bushes, the Obamas, the Blairs, and the Mays are influenced by religious belief? No, their religion is money and power

    The above quote of yours brought to my mind an excerpt from the 2006 paper, The Israel Lobby written by Harvard’s JFK School of Government professor of International Affairs Stephen Walt and Chicago University professor of Political Sciences John Mearsheimer in which they explain how the Lobby effectively makes politicians dance to its tune:

    AIPAC itself, however, forms the core of the Lobby’s influence in Congress. Its success is due to its ability to reward legislators and congressional candidates who support its agenda, and to punish those who challenge it. Money is critical to US elections (as the scandal over the lobbyist Jack Abramoff’s shady dealings reminds us), and AIPAC makes sure that its friends get strong financial support from the many pro-Israel political action committees. Anyone who is seen as hostile to Israel can be sure that AIPAC will direct campaign contributions to his or her political opponents.

    https://www.lrb.co.uk/v28/n06/john-mearsheimer/the-israel-lobby

    And this article by Philip Weiss

    At Lobelog, Jim Lobe and Eli Clifton say bluntly, the choice satisfied Trump’s biggest donor. “Adelson, a huge supporter of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, likely played a critical role in Bolton’s ascendancy.”

    http://www.unz.com/article/trump-appointed-bolton-because-republicans-desperately-need-adelsons-money/

    And, even Jews themselves admit Jewish money makes or brakes US politicos.

    https://www.timesofisrael.com/jewish-donors-filling-candidates-war-chests-especially-clintons/

    I am curious to see what mental gymnastics are you able to come up with – after reading that well researched paper to which I am linking to above and also knowing how the pro Israel donor Adelson single handedly had the war hawk, pro Iraq war, pro Iran and Syria US military intervention, arch neocon Bolton apointed as National Security adviser – to explain the curious fact being that anyone following the money, more often than not, will find pro Israel Jewish donors at the end of the trail, be it Adelson, Saban or Rothschild.

    Nothing to explain. It's a fact. Some powerful Jews in the West see themselves as part of a Jewish nation living among another nation, and they use their wealth and organizations to promote Jewish interests over and above, or even contrary to, the interests of the larger society. I deplore the lack of loyalty and patriotism of such Jews, although as I indicated, I do not think that the mentality of such Jews is predominant among ordinary Jews living today in Western nations.

    The power of the Jewish lobby reflects both the wealth of Jews and also the lack of national commitment of non-Jewish Americans, Canadians, Brits, etc. Why is it that people like Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, and the Duke of Westminster don't out-donate the likes of the Adelsons and Rothschilds, but in the greater national interest, not some sectional interest? The reason that they don't, I think is two-fold.

    First, Christian civilization emphasizes the importance of the individual, not the group. As such, even our present post-Christian civilization still has a meritocratic tendency, which means it assumes that everyone is for himself, without an overriding obligation to the collective. This makes Christian civilization particularly vulnerable to hostile sub-groups that act collectively. How this played out in Russia is documented in Alexandr Solzhenitsyn's Two Hundred Years Together, which the Jewish-dominated, English-language publishing community will not publish in English translation [or have the Solzhenitsyn family refused to grant rights to an an English-language publisher?].

    It is a story of exploitation, reaction, indignant counter-reaction, brutality, kindness, callous indifference and generous sympathy. A disaster, in other words, with mitigating acts of individual decency that is playing out again throughout the West today, with Jewish exploitation of the host society by way of the porn industry, Hollywood's misrepresentations of history, banking malpractice, everlasting whinging about the Holocaust as if every non-Jew is somehow responsible even if they hadn't yet been born at the time it occurred etc., provocations leading to anti-Semitism, and more provocative anti-anti-Semitism.

    The second factor, is the collapse of Christianity, not primarily due to Jewish influence but to the influence of Western intellectuals: people such as Bertrand Russell, John Dewey, the mad evolutionary biologist, Richard Dawkins, who's too dim to see the evolutionary significance of religion, and just about every university teacher.

    In lieu of a religion, the intellectual class of the post-Christian West have grasped with enthusiasm the dictates of political correctness which they enforce throughout the education system, in legislation and in the corporate world in ways that are contrary to the Western tradition of free speech (e.g., Catholic Maquette University's dismissal of Professor John MacAdams for defending the right of students to express their opposition to gay marriage) and free market economics (e.g., the punishment of a baker for refusing to bake a gay wedding cake — whatever a gay wedding cake may be). [The court judgement based on Sotomeyer's contention that if you set up in business to sell cakes you have to sell them to anyone, is rubbish because the baker in question did not set up to sell any type of cake, he set up shop only to sell heterosexual wedding cakes (whatever heterosexual wedding cake may be, not queer wedding cakes). But Sotomeyer was placed on the court to enforce PC nonsense and she's doing her job in destroying the nations.]

    "He [Putin] learned the ropes since 2000, when, at the dawn of his first presidential term, the Kursk submarine went down with all hands.

    "Putin stayed away from the sailors’ families, and acted callous, people said. “It had sunk”, Putin replied to the question “What happened to Kursk?”"

    This is complete nonsense. Putin went to the base and invited all the relatives to talk with him in the base hall and he stayed with them until they had exhausted their questions. He was utterly feeling and vulnerable with them and told them, "I could tell you that there's hope for your loved ones and leave with your good feelings. Or I can tell you the truth and stay with you".

    And he stayed with them.

    I'm sure someone can locate the footage. I was, as you can tell, so impressed by his performance that I recommended the video to many friends.

    Vladimir Putin put the worst Yid Oligarch head of Yukos Oil in a public jail/cage then sentenced this anti Russian Yid to forced labor in Siberia.

    The Russians could use their influence with Polish Nationalists to simply dismantle the Aushwitz sacred 6 million gassed Jews Holy place and replace it with a Catholic monastery or a soccer field.

    Did I miss something? Did Yahweh tell German soldiers that they were his Chosen People?

    I’m being facetious, of course… but there’s a grain of truth to it. Why do we not ‘memorialise’ Uncle Joe’s engineered famine (which killed significantly more than 6 million) or the 40-million(-ish) toll from Mao’s Great Leap Forward (sic)?

    The answer is easy: they have the wrong ethnocultural background – their sorry tale cannot be used to enrich or empower a small Western clique of atheist descendants of Eastern European shtletl-dwellers.

    You would think that an ethnocultural/religious group that is obsessed with its own cleverness, would be smart enough to stop its inclination for over-reach (which has seen it booted from every ‘host’ country in existence, at one time or another).

    Ha! Never did know what that term meant. But it doesn't doesn't describe the Clintons, Blairs, etc accurately. They will do anything for anyone if the money's good enough. And that's been true of Congress people since the birth of the Republic. America is a plutocracy with a bought legislature. Today, the Jews buy a lot of the legislators, but most American politicians, like their counterparts in other Western nations, work for anyone with ready cash, whether they be Christians, Muslims, Jews or ex KGB, including Vladimir Putin.

    That kind of verbiage is all very well and all very useless. The fact is that the elites are the elites: they have the power and they have no intention of giving it up. So what are you going to do about it?

    And while some powerful Jews and Israelis are globalists, so are plenty of other people. Scum like Tony Blair, Theresa May, the Bush's, the Clintons and most of the goyim sitting in Congress. So yelping about the Jews merely obscures the issue and raises the distracting howls about anti-Semitism.

    Get to the facts, identify the perps of all races and religions. Then you might begin to unravel a thread or two in the system of control under which you live.

    JUST A REMNDER

    The Syria civil war was started by Saudi. They recruited, armed and financed the early rebels that were later joined by ISIS sunnis.
    At that time Israel and Saudi became allies in the war on Syria…..Israel to provide its US influence, Saudi to provide the money.

    Saudi’s motive was to prevent its spreading Shia influence in the region because it was a threat to the Sunni throne…i.e.,their place as the leading Kings and rulers of the ME
    Israel’s motive was of course to destroy all states like Syria and Iran who might resist their aim of being the supreme hegemon of the ME.

    Its not about oil
    Its not about elites
    Its not about capitalism

    I see the pattern, broadly speaking. Let's suppose you're correct.

    It must be pointed out that obviously, Saudi and Israeli goals are mutually incompatible. Saudi Arabia cannot be the premier power in the Middle East while Israel retains much influence. Similarly, Israel cannot be hegemon while the Arabs, in the form of Saudi Arabia, remain powerful.

    Bit of layman's background.

    The modern region we know as the "Middle East" has 4 ethnic-cultural poles. The Israelites and Persians have been there since antiquity, the Arabs became a force with the coming of Islam, and finally Asian interlopers, the Turks, smashed in while fleeing from their Inner Mongolian homelands.

    So you paint a scenario where Jews and Arabs have joined forces to suppress the Persians.

    What happens AFTER the Persians are diminished? Do Israel and Saudi Arabia turn on each other? Do they divvy up the Middle East? Do they jointly turn against the Turks? Does one ally with the Turks to gang up on the third?

    What's the end game?

    Attack on Syria started the d ay Syria Accountability Act was passed . It was written by Jews of AIPAC. Sharon was yelling at Bush everyday reminding him to go to to Syria to retrieve WMD and dismantle Assad after the Iraq war . Syria was countless times attacked by Israel since 2007 Sharon and a few other in JINSA AIPAC FDD PNAC and COMENTARY MAGAZINE were asking to topple Syrian regime

    Syria was accused of killing of Harri who most likely was killed by Israel.

    AIPAC descended in town in 2013 to make it easy for Obama to attack Syria and to offer financial moral electoral supports to the candidates who would agree to kill Syrians.

    Edward Lurttwak was parroting Israeli policy as American policy on OpEd of NYT saying that the continued war should be American aims so that the bleeding of Syrians never would stop . Someone from Jewish camp

    One can't help but summon Nietzsche's formulation...
    "This world is the will to power—and nothing besides! And you yourselves are also this will to power—and nothing besides!” ― Friedrich Nietzsche

    Now here comes the rub, where those who seek political/military power misunderstand Nietzsche's distinction between Kraft (force) and Macht (power). Macht is multi-dimensional, including moral, ethical, and cultural depth, where Kraft is basically raw force. You need both to run a successful empire or nation. In mistaking Kraft for Macht, elites succumb to Hubris and overreach, and so wind up hanging from lampposts when their day in the sun is over. Over and over again.

    ... I have found strength where one does not look for it: in simple, mild, and pleasant people, without the least desire to rule—and, conversely, the desire to rule has often appeared to me a sign of inward weakness: they fear their own slave soul and shroud it in a royal cloak...

    Powerful people, nations, empires, who commanded vast resources and armies can fall into oblivion is a heartbeat. As the low minded and greedy rise to the top of the pyramid, the society that brought them there loses sight of the Macht side of the equation and inevitably collapses.

    So it is with the West today. Only vestiges of its old Macht remaining, and its Kraft is suspect. It may be able to win battles, but it can't win the War for Civilization that it sees itself as fighting. The enemy is inside the gates, indeed inside the halls of its power.

    Is everyone here insane. Britain has a constitutional monarch with no more power
     
    How does it feel to be wrong?

    I have already posted a list of the reserve powers of the monarch of the United Kingdom.

    This list was officially released by HM Government.


    han the Queen’s representative as head of state, the Governor General of Canada, an obscure non-entity and former astronaut, named Julie Payette.
     
    The reserve powers in Canada are the same as in the United Kingdom. They are vested in the Queen's representative in Canada, the Governor-General.

    They have not been used in modern Canadian history, but they have been used in Australia. Governor-General Kerr dismissed Gough Shitlam from office in 1975.


    Any time the Queen starts issuing decrees
     
    Royal decrees are not among the reserve powers of the monarch. Per the English Bill of Rights than you brought up only parliament can make law.

    Royal decrees are not among these powers incidentally.


    When Charles becomes king, it is likely that he will try issuing decrees and we will then see the Monarch actually placed in a padded room or otherwise disposed of, as was the Queen’s nitwit uncle, King Edward the Eighth.
     
    That said you are correct if the monarch were to use these powers in opposition to the cabinet, a de facto constitutional crisis would ensue.

    There is, of course, zero risk of that taking place since she and her entire royal house are spineless losers.

    The only Shitlam here is you. The late Geoff Whitlam was possibly the best and the most loved Prime Minister Australia ever had. What the Queen did then, and it was not really the Queen then CIA, was dismiss a democratically elected leader of a country, which was similar to the Chilean coup organised by the same organisation.

    BTW, I am definitely not left-wing and although Whitlam was a left-wing leader I have great respect for him. Whitlam saw perfectly what was going on in the World at the time and resisted it, a true leader. There has not been any other leader like that anywhere in the West since de Gaulle.

    I honestly do not know where such shitlams like you pop out of.

    Bit of layman’s background.

    The modern region we know as the “Middle East” has 4 ethnic-cultural poles. The Israelites and Persians have been there since antiquity, the Arabs became a force with the coming of Islam, and finally Asian interlopers, the Turks, smashed in while fleeing from their Inner Mongolian homelands.

    So you paint a scenario where Jews and Arabs have joined forces to suppress the Persians.

    What happens AFTER the Persians are diminished? Do Israel and Saudi Arabia turn on each other? Do they divvy up the Middle East? Do they jointly turn against the Turks? Does one ally with the Turks to gang up on the third?

    What’s the end game?

    Israel will never quit trying to rule the ME and dip its beak into other countries wealth and resources.
    Saudi will never let them have that much control over Arab countries as that would be as threatening to their throne as Iranian influence.

    Both think they will be able to control and out smart each once their current mutual goal is achieved.

    H. SACHER JULY 1919:

    THE Zionist movement dates from A.D. 70, the year of the destruction of the Temple and the Jewish State. https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/1919/07/a-jewish-palestine/303393/
     

    No, the Zionist movement does not date from the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 AD. You could say it starts with Ezra and the destruction of the First Temple in 586 BC. But more accurately, it dates from the first partition of Poland between Prussia, Austria, and Russia in 1772. Before that there was a sovereign Jewish Rabbinic state within Poland, alongside a Catholic Royal state. Poland was a condominium of the two powers created when Vytautus the Lithuanian warlord brought Jewish Khazar mercenaries from the Crimea to Lithuania in 1392 to be landlords to the Christian Serfs. They came on condition of autonomy, and that grew into a kingdom within a kingdom which came to an end when Poland, Catholic and Jewish disappeared in 1772. Zionism was one of the Jewish responses to the dissolution of the sovereignty of the Jewish State within Poland.

    Never heard of it. Could you suggest some reading material?

    As far as Zionism year 1666 is known for various Zionist activism. At it happening outside of Poland and concerned mostly Sephardim Jews.

    In the middle of the 16th century, Joseph Nasi, with the support of the Ottoman Empire, tried to gather the Portuguese Jews, first to migrate to Cyprus, then owned by the Republic of Venice, and later to resettle in Tiberias. Nasi – who never converted to Islam[40][41][notes 1] – eventually obtained the highest medical position in the empire, and actively participated in court life. He convinced Suleiman I to intervene with the Pope on behalf of Ottoman-subject Portuguese Jews imprisoned in Ancona.[40] Between the 4th and 19th centuries, Nasi's was the only practical attempt to establish some sort of Jewish political center in Palestine.[42]

    In the 17th century Sabbatai Zevi (1626–1676) announced himself as the Messiah and gained many Jews to his side, forming a base in Salonika. He first tried to establish a settlement in Gaza, but moved later to Smyrna. After deposing the old rabbi Aaron Lapapa in the spring of 1666, the Jewish community of Avignon, France prepared to emigrate to the new kingdom. The readiness of the Jews of the time to believe the messianic claims of Sabbatai Zevi may be largely explained by the desperate state of Central European Jewry in the mid-17th century. The bloody pogroms of Bohdan Khmelnytsky had wiped out one-third of the Jewish population and destroyed many centers of Jewish learning and communal life.
     
    , @SolontoCroesus
    Judah Halevi is sometimes called the first modern zionist --

    Judah ben Samuel Halevi (c. 1075-–1141) was the only son of a wealthy Spanish Jewish family, most likely born in Toledo. . . . under Muslim rule . . .
    Halevi duly found his way to Granada, remaining in the city and forming close friendships with the circle of Hebrew poets thriving there. He left only in 1090, when the city fell to the Almohades. Just three years later, soldiers of the First Crusade devastated Jewish communities across Christian Europe. Halevi wrote, “Between the armies of Se’ir [the Christians] and Kedar [the Muslims]/ My army perishes and is lost.”

    For many years Halevi wandered about Spain, with significant periods spent in Lucena, Seville, Toledo, and Córdoba. While it is difficult to establish a precise chronology of these years, it is known that he studied and practiced medicine. Halevi’s life, though itinerant, appears for the most part to have been comfortable and abundant in friends; he cherished his only daughter and grandson, was widely respected as a physician, and was increasingly revered as a national poet. About one thousand Hebrew poems ascribed to him are extant, many considered among the greatest Hebrew poems of the Middle Ages, and, indeed, ever.

    As Halevi grew older, his work turned to political and philosophical discussions. He also began to experience a longing both traditionally Jewish and markedly absent in the Jewish literature of the generations preceding him, namely the desire to effect a return to Zion and Jerusalem.
    His most famous poem begins,

    “My heart is in the East, and I in uttermost West… /
    How can I find savor in my food? How shall it be sweet to me/
    How shall I render my vows and bonds, while yet/
    Zion lies under the fetters of Edom [Christendom], and I in Arab chains?”

    The final decade of Halevi’s life, spanning c.1130 to 1140, was spent largely in Córdoba. He continued to revise his lengthy masterwork, the Kuzari [Kitab al Khazari], a dialogue touching on philosophy, politics, and Judaism, and subtitled “The book of refutation and proof on behalf of the most despised religion.”

    Taken as a whole, the Kuzari presents a prophecy-focused restatement of many of the central ideas of Judaism, and an apparent rejection of Aristotelian and Neoplatonic influences on religious thought. Rather than adopting the creed of political quietism and self-improvement characteristic of Halevi’s presentation of the philosophers, the Jewish sage of the Kuzari resolves to journey to Jerusalem, proclaiming, that “Jerusalem can only be rebuilt when Israel yearns for it to such an extent that they embrace her stones and dust.”

    Halevi’s intention, too, was to leave Spain for Jerusalem, a city then in Crusader hands and without a Jewish community. The Kuzari had all but announced Halevi’s departure as a religious act. Given his renown and stature, it was also understood as the defection of one of Spanish Jewry’s favorite sons.

    In 1140, at the age of 65 or 67, Halevi left family, friends and Spain, setting sail for Alexandria en route to Jerusalem. Received with adulation by the Jews of Alexandria, he remained in Egypt for almost a year, before again setting sail for Palestine sometime in May 1141. By October, letters of friends report Halevi’s death under unknown circumstances. It is not clear whether he ever reached Jerusalem. In subsequent Jewish history, his decision to go has taken on more meaning than whether he actually arrived. http://thegreatthinkers.org/halevi/biography/

    I'm not certain I have ever heard the name Max Nordau, and I am certain I have never read anything he wrote or said.

    Very insightful man. He recognized that the Brit Empire was a force for 'progressivism' in that it was founded against Christendom and always had been more than happy to slaughter endless numbers of white Gentile Christians and to act to exterminate their cultures.

    Anglo-Saxon Puritanism was a Judaizing heresy, and Judaizing heresy must necessarily produce pro-Jewish culture. To make that point diamond hard: Archetypal WASP Oliver Cromwell made the deal with Jews., taking Jewish money and allowing Jews back into England with special rights and privileges denied to the vast, vast majority of British Isles native Christians. And Cromwell and the Puritans made that deal precisely to keep waging war to batter to death non-WASP cultures native to the British Isles.

    You cannot solve the Jewish problem without solving the WASP problem.

    And the WASP problem is NOT one of Christianity, but of murderous heresy against historic Christianity and Christendom.

    It is not that Max Nordau, president of the Zionist congress at the turn of the century, was that insightful, it is that the Zionists created the events that they wanted to happen. World War I and World War II served Zionist ends.
    In WW I Palestine was taken from Turkey with the League of Nations “legalizing” the “Mandate System” and given to the Jews in exchange for delivering America as a military ally to Britain (instead of America becoming an ally of Germany). World War II destroyed and punished the European nations further and created the United Nations which officially created Israel and convinced the reluctant Jews to go there.
    War between Russia and America is an opportunistic means to destroy the abominable non-Jewish entities, to the extent that they are non-Jewish, and to seize Syria and Iraq under cover of chaos. If some of the Am Haaretz are eliminated, nobody ever cared about what happened to them. They are just as expendable as the Goyim.

    Your former military planners have got it wrong. At this point in time Russia is stronger on land and in the air than NATO / America. Only at sea is Russia weaker.

    Even if Syria is bombed by America / Israel its not the end of the world, because all America and Israel can do is bomb. They're unwilling to put hundreds of thousands of boots on the ground to occupy Syria, only Turkey can do that and Turkey is not too happy with the US at present. The Syrians will just have to dig deeper bomb shelters and live underground for a while and still keep on wiping out the NATO irregulars (ISIS and what ever) until none of them is left.

    Russia can just weather the storm, take some losses (its a soldier's job to die in combat anyway) and kill some Americans, and thereafter participate more actively in Iraq and Afghanistan. While America / NATO loves shock and awe, Russia has made the slow grind its specialty, and has transferred these techniques to the Syrians and Hezbollah.

    But if anyone uses nukes, whatever the yield, then the situation will get totally out of hand, nukes are the only way to get past the slow grind.

    There weren't exactly pogroms of Jews.

    Khmelnytsky was a Cossack of Ukraine. He led an uprising against the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth magnates in 1648–1654 which resulted in the creation of a Cossack state.
    The uprising he led was against Polish nobles who kept accumulating land by less than honest means (including Khmelnytsky's own estate) and turning it over to renters, Jews who would lease it out for a fee...too high a fee for the farmers.
    The Cossacks, allied with the Crimean Tatars and local peasants and fought against the armies and forces of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth. The Jews were on the side of the nobles as they had special deals such as making money off leasehold fees.

    So the Jews got killed just like all the other losers on the wrong side of those battles. The Cossacks were not known for being merciful to their enemies, Jewish or not Jewish. They also killed a bunch of Catholics as they too were aligned with the commonwealth .

    The modern region we know as the "Middle East" has 4 ethnic-cultural poles. The Israelites and Persians have been there since antiquity, the Arabs became a force with the coming of Islam, and finally Asian interlopers, the Turks, smashed in while fleeing from their Inner Mongolian homelands.

    So you paint a scenario where Jews and Arabs have joined forces to suppress the Persians.

    What happens AFTER the Persians are diminished? Do Israel and Saudi Arabia turn on each other? Do they divvy up the Middle East? Do they jointly turn against the Turks? Does one ally with the Turks to gang up on the third?

    What's the end game?

    What happens AFTER the Persians are diminished? Do Israel and Saudi Arabia turn on each other? Do they divvy up the Middle East?

    Yes they will turn on each other. ….the enemy of my enemy is my friend….for awhile, not forever

    Israel will never quit trying to rule the ME and dip its beak into other countries wealth and resources.
    Saudi will never let them have that much control over Arab countries as that would be as threatening to their throne as Iranian influence.

    Both think they will be able to control and out smart each once their current mutual goal is achieved.

    Do the Chinese and Russians have more investment in Saudi Arabia & Israel, or in each other and Iran?

    Is Iran isolated geopolitically?

    I can't see Iran going down. (Maybe that is because I do not want to see Iran harmed.)

    Probably because my head is so full of the world wars in Europe, I think the Trumpers and neocons around him are living in that mode also; they think every enemy is Hitler and every war is against Nazis. They think they were virtuous and victorious in that war; they sustain their vision of virtue by perpetuating the demonization of Germany.

    Western Allies were neither virtuous nor victorious; it was the Russians who defeated Germany, tho the Western Allies destroyed and despoiled the nation post-war.

    This time around, USA does not have a Russia to rely upon; only head choppers and liver eaters. And the force that achieved the victory in the Great War is now on the other side.

    Can USA put together a coalition of warriors that can achieve victory against the former victor?
    Andrew Bacevich has been answering that question in his shambling half-hearted style: USA has not been able to put together a coalition to defeat goat herders in Afghanistans, over the course of 17 years and $7 trillion.

    And what if China decides to defend its investments in the region? Will China partner w/ USA or with Russia, with whom China already has elements of OBOR in the works?

    For the sake of world peace – I am beginning to think that impeaching Trump is a good idea. He is doing harm to the stability of the world. He truly is a bull in a china shop. Upsetting America’s internal status quo is a good thing – but upsetting the worlds equilibrium is another. The only country in the world that Trump has not pissed off – is Israel – how totally and completely disgusting.

    Am not there 100% yet – but getting close.

    You know who Mike Pence is right? Cause he’s next in line..
    Anyway could this be the reason they’re so horny to attack now?

    Russia controls Douma, guarantees impartial investigation; that makes US attack MORE likely

    http://theduran.com/russia-controls-douma-guarantees-impartial-investigation-us-attack-more-likely/

    As a result of the total surrender of the Jihadis previously in control of Douma on Sunday, it is the Russian military who this time are in control of the alleged crime scene.

    This has put the Russians in a position where for the first time they are able both to invite the OPCW inspectors to attend the crime scene and to provide them with protection if they are there, whilst at the same time monitoring and supervising their work.

    If the chemical attack on Douma really is fictitious – as the Russians insist it is – then for the first time their control of the crime scene puts the Russians in a strong position to prove it.

    The point was made forcefully by Russia’s UN ambassador Vassily Nebenzia at the UN Security Council session today, and it also received indirect backing from the UN Secretariat, who admitted that they could not confirm that a chemical weapons attack had happened, and who called upon all sides to show restraint until a proper investigation of the incident had taken place.

    Nebenzia followed this up by inviting OPCW inspectors to the scene as early as tomorrow Tuesday.

    By now it should surprise no-one that the fact that the Russians are in control of the crime scene and may on this occasion be able to prove conclusively that no chemical weapons attack happened in Douma, instead of deterring a US attack, is actually making it more likely.

    This is because the credibility of the various ‘witnesses’ to the Douma attack – who are of course the same witnesses who were previously ‘witnesses’ to the 2013 East Ghouta and the 2017 Khan Sheikhoun attacks – is now on the line, as is the credibility of those Western governments – first and foremost the US government – who believed or who pretended to believe them.

    I would add that not only is the credibility of the US government and of other Western governments on the line. So is the credibility of Western journalists who also believed or pretended to believe the ‘witnesses’.

    Ron Unz posted a video of the Russian envoy's speech at UN today (Apr 11 18).

    Rough notes from near the end to the conclusion of his remarks:

    “And you are misguided if you think tha thou have friends So called friends of yours are only those who cannot say no to you. And this is the sole criterion for friendship in your understanding . Russia has friends and unlike yourselves we do not have adversaries.
    We do not view the wordl through that prism. And yes, international terrorism, that is our enemy. However, we continue to propose cooperation. This need to be respectful and mutual cooperation, it needs to go towards resolving real and not imagined problems. And you should be just as interested as we are in such a cooperation.

    ///

    26 minAs permanent members of the Security Council, we bear the main responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security. Throught the relevant channels, we already conveyed to the US that armed force under mendacious pretexts against Syria, where, at the request of the legitimate government of the country, Russian troops have been deployed, could lead to grave repercussions.

    We call upon Western politicians to scale down their hawkish rhetoric, to meaningfully consider possible repercussions and to cease the reckless spill over of threats to global security. What military misadventures of the West brought about is well known to us if we consider the examples of Yugoslavia, Iraq and Libya.

    And nobody invested you with the power to act as policemen of the world and as investigators, procurators, judges and executioners all at the same time.

    We call fo your return to the legal fold to comply with the U N Charter and to jointly tackle problems that arise, rather than attempting at each step to advance your egotistical geopolitical game. All of the energy needs to be focused on support for the political process in Syria, to which it is necessary to constructively pull the efforts of all influential players. Russia always stands ready to engage in such cooperation.

    To conclude, Mr. President, I wish to take this opportunity to request an open briefing of the Security Council on the outcomes of the UN assessment mission in Raqqa and the situation in the Rahman camp. We see the way of members of the Commission attempting to create a smoke screen around this issue, which is a result of their actions in Syria, including the operations to rae Raqqa to the ground through bombings. No chemical provocations will divert attention from thism, from wha you’ve done. Thank you.

    Believe it or not, the “Christian Zionist” (I know it is a total oxymoron) movement and its rapture ready zombies represent an important Israeli 5th column within American politics, and within the so called “conservative moment”, and there is no doubt that a lot of Trumpeters subscribe to this carnivalesque view of the Apocalypse. These are the people who have memorized every single word of Hal Lindsey’s “The Late Great Planet Earth” and who believe that there will be a Russian invasion of the entire Middle East and that the Russian invasion force will be destroyed via divine intervention and by the Israeli Defense Forces (who in reality could not defeat a few thousand or so light infantry in Southern Lebanon); all this supposedly involves hastening the advent of the Antichrist. The utter nutcase John Hagee is a perfect example of the goy Zionist idolater.

    Ironically, on the other end of the spectrum, you have the left wing shabbos goyim hating on Russia because of its renascent Christian culture and its rejection of the real spirit of Antichrist as articulated by the rites of Sodom, transgenderism, multiculturalism and anti-anti-Semitism- the latter transposing into to hating anybody insufficiently effusive in praise of international Jewry and its machinations, including that most sacrosanct of new world pseudo-religions, the Church of Shoah or Holocaustianity.

    Playing both sides to the same end you have the neocons and the so called “liberal interventionists” who never met a war they didn’t like or a bomb they were unwilling to drop. Their primary weaponized arm is AIPAC, which buys and sells members of Congress and elected officials like the cheap meretricious swine that most of them are.

    Trump’s moment of fatal hubris may now truly be upon him (and us). He could not take on “the Armageddon Lobby” all at once and expect to survive or to retain his sanity. As the Greeks put it, “Those whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad.”

    In coming decades, centuries and even millennia, should human civilization survive, school children, regular citizens and professional historians alike will look back in bewilderment at the phenomenon of Western civilizations and cultures brought to nothing, by the loss of their very minds and souls to an alien philosophy.

    That a culture, ANY culture anywhere, has significant numbers of its members committed to sacrificing themselves for the sake of ANOTHER people, all to attain some sort of theologically-promised state of "divine perfection" simply beggars belief. The degree to which outsiders have subverted the Western soul is mind-boggling.

    The lesson, as ever, is crystal clear for all to see: Allow a cultural paradigm which centers itself on anything other than your OWN place in the world, which enjoins you to sacrifice your own good for some nebulous, perhaps non-existent end, to exist in your midst, and suffer the consequences.

    No, the Zionist movement does not date from the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 AD. You could say it starts with Ezra and the destruction of the First Temple in 586 BC. But more accurately, it dates from the first partition of Poland between Prussia, Austria, and Russia in 1772. Before that there was a sovereign Jewish Rabbinic state within Poland, alongside a Catholic Royal state. Poland was a condominium of the two powers created when Vytautus the Lithuanian warlord brought Jewish Khazar mercenaries from the Crimea to Lithuania in 1392 to be landlords to the Christian Serfs. They came on condition of autonomy, and that grew into a kingdom within a kingdom which came to an end when Poland, Catholic and Jewish disappeared in 1772. Zionism was one of the Jewish responses to the dissolution of the sovereignty of the Jewish State within Poland.

    Judah Halevi is sometimes called the first modern zionist –

    [MORE]

    Judah ben Samuel Halevi (c. 1075-–1141) was the only son of a wealthy Spanish Jewish family, most likely born in Toledo. . . . under Muslim rule . . .
    Halevi duly found his way to Granada, remaining in the city and forming close friendships with the circle of Hebrew poets thriving there. He left only in 1090, when the city fell to the Almohades. Just three years later, soldiers of the First Crusade devastated Jewish communities across Christian Europe. Halevi wrote, “Between the armies of Se’ir [the Christians] and Kedar [the Muslims]/ My army perishes and is lost.”

    For many years Halevi wandered about Spain, with significant periods spent in Lucena, Seville, Toledo, and Córdoba. While it is difficult to establish a precise chronology of these years, it is known that he studied and practiced medicine. Halevi’s life, though itinerant, appears for the most part to have been comfortable and abundant in friends; he cherished his only daughter and grandson, was widely respected as a physician, and was increasingly revered as a national poet. About one thousand Hebrew poems ascribed to him are extant, many considered among the greatest Hebrew poems of the Middle Ages, and, indeed, ever.

    As Halevi grew older, his work turned to political and philosophical discussions. He also began to experience a longing both traditionally Jewish and markedly absent in the Jewish literature of the generations preceding him, namely the desire to effect a return to Zion and Jerusalem.
    His most famous poem begins,

    “My heart is in the East, and I in uttermost West… /
    How can I find savor in my food? How shall it be sweet to me/
    How shall I render my vows and bonds, while yet/
    Zion lies under the fetters of Edom [Christendom], and I in Arab chains?”

    The final decade of Halevi’s life, spanning c.1130 to 1140, was spent largely in Córdoba. He continued to revise his lengthy masterwork, the Kuzari [Kitab al Khazari], a dialogue touching on philosophy, politics, and Judaism, and subtitled “The book of refutation and proof on behalf of the most despised religion.”

    Taken as a whole, the Kuzari presents a prophecy-focused restatement of many of the central ideas of Judaism, and an apparent rejection of Aristotelian and Neoplatonic influences on religious thought. Rather than adopting the creed of political quietism and self-improvement characteristic of Halevi’s presentation of the philosophers, the Jewish sage of the Kuzari resolves to journey to Jerusalem, proclaiming, that “Jerusalem can only be rebuilt when Israel yearns for it to such an extent that they embrace her stones and dust.”

    Halevi’s intention, too, was to leave Spain for Jerusalem, a city then in Crusader hands and without a Jewish community. The Kuzari had all but announced Halevi’s departure as a religious act. Given his renown and stature, it was also understood as the defection of one of Spanish Jewry’s favorite sons.

    In 1140, at the age of 65 or 67, Halevi left family, friends and Spain, setting sail for Alexandria en route to Jerusalem. Received with adulation by the Jews of Alexandria, he remained in Egypt for almost a year, before again setting sail for Palestine sometime in May 1141. By October, letters of friends report Halevi’s death under unknown circumstances. It is not clear whether he ever reached Jerusalem. In subsequent Jewish history, his decision to go has taken on more meaning than whether he actually arrived. http://thegreatthinkers.org/halevi/biography/

    I don't know what interest China has in region.

    But China and Russia have a pact of sorts:

    http://www.china.org.cn/english/2002/Jul/36991.htm

    In July 2001 in Moscow, Chinese President Jiang Zemin and Russian President Vladimir Putin signed the Sino-Russian Good-Neighborly Treaty of Friendship and Cooperation. This came as a natural development of increasingly good Sino-Russian relations over the previous decade. The Treaty represents a milestone in the road of friendship be,,,,,,
    continued at link.

    Since China has signed a non aggression pact with Russia they would ether go with Russia or stay out of it.

    The US would have Saudi, Israel and France (maybe)
    Iran would have Russia.
    If it ever became a ground war a lot of shittes would join up with Iran
    As for Turkey, who knows.
    Egypt I think would stay out.

    Military experts say Saudi's A/F and army isn't worth a shit, they have billions in equipment they don't know how to use against a real opponent. Israel also highly overrated.

    So who knows? I guess we are all just guessing and waiting.

    JUST A REMNDER

    The Syria civil war was started by Saudi. They recruited, armed and financed the early rebels that were later joined by ISIS sunnis.
    At that time Israel and Saudi became allies in the war on Syria.....Israel to provide its US influence, Saudi to provide the money.

    Saudi's motive was to prevent its spreading Shia influence in the region because it was a threat to the Sunni throne...i.e.,their place as the leading Kings and rulers of the ME
    Israel's motive was of course to destroy all states like Syria and Iran who might resist their aim of being the supreme hegemon of the ME.

    Its not about oil
    Its not about elites
    Its not about capitalism
    Its not about religion

    Its about the psychopath in Saudi, the psychopath in Israel and the US zionist and their bought politicians.
    Iow its all about keeping and getting Power, nothing else.

    So knock yourselves out making up all the theories you want. This however, is all there is to it.

    Iow its all about keeping and getting Power, nothing else.

    One can’t help but summon Nietzsche’s formulation…
    “This world is the will to power—and nothing besides! And you yourselves are also this will to power—and nothing besides!” ― Friedrich Nietzsche

    Now here comes the rub, where those who seek political/military power misunderstand Nietzsche’s distinction between Kraft (force) and Macht (power). Macht is multi-dimensional, including moral, ethical, and cultural depth, where Kraft is basically raw force. You need both to run a successful empire or nation. In mistaking Kraft for Macht, elites succumb to Hubris and overreach, and so wind up hanging from lampposts when their day in the sun is over. Over and over again.

    … I have found strength where one does not look for it: in simple, mild, and pleasant people, without the least desire to rule—and, conversely, the desire to rule has often appeared to me a sign of inward weakness: they fear their own slave soul and shroud it in a royal cloak…

    Powerful people, nations, empires, who commanded vast resources and armies can fall into oblivion is a heartbeat. As the low minded and greedy rise to the top of the pyramid, the society that brought them there loses sight of the Macht side of the equation and inevitably collapses.

    So it is with the West today. Only vestiges of its old Macht remaining, and its Kraft is suspect. It may be able to win battles, but it can’t win the War for Civilization that it sees itself as fighting. The enemy is inside the gates, indeed inside the halls of its power.

    Do the Chinese and Russians have more investment in Saudi Arabia & Israel, or in each other and Iran?

    Is Iran isolated geopolitically?

    I can't see Iran going down. (Maybe that is because I do not want to see Iran harmed.)

    Probably because my head is so full of the world wars in Europe, I think the Trumpers and neocons around him are living in that mode also; they think every enemy is Hitler and every war is against Nazis. They think they were virtuous and victorious in that war; they sustain their vision of virtue by perpetuating the demonization of Germany.

    Western Allies were neither virtuous nor victorious; it was the Russians who defeated Germany, tho the Western Allies destroyed and despoiled the nation post-war.

    This time around, USA does not have a Russia to rely upon; only head choppers and liver eaters. And the force that achieved the victory in the Great War is now on the other side.

    Can USA put together a coalition of warriors that can achieve victory against the former victor?
    Andrew Bacevich has been answering that question in his shambling half-hearted style: USA has not been able to put together a coalition to defeat goat herders in Afghanistans, over the course of 17 years and $7 trillion.

    And what if China decides to defend its investments in the region? Will China partner w/ USA or with Russia, with whom China already has elements of OBOR in the works?

    I bet that Assad would gladly make a deal with Israel: return Golan Heights to Syria and stop bombing Syria in support of your Sunni terrorists and the Iranians will leave and never come back to Syria.

    But the only way to knock some sense into Israel would be to obliterate one city of Israel with the lowest Russian population in it.

    Assad has publicly stated that he welcomes 3 countries to help him rebuild Syria: Russia, China and Iran. These are the 3 countries that stuck with him through thick and thin during the last 7 years of civil war. Russia and China voted together 6 times against every U.N. resolution that attempted to sanction Assad. He knows who his friends are. He is not going to tell Iran to go away to please Israel, and he shouldn't. F- Israel.

    Ron Unz posted a video of the Russian envoy's speech at UN today (Apr 11 18).

    Rough notes from near the end to the conclusion of his remarks:

    “And you are misguided if you think tha thou have friends So called friends of yours are only those who cannot say no to you. And this is the sole criterion for friendship in your understanding . Russia has friends and unlike yourselves we do not have adversaries.
    We do not view the wordl through that prism. And yes, international terrorism, that is our enemy. However, we continue to propose cooperation. This need to be respectful and mutual cooperation, it needs to go towards resolving real and not imagined problems. And you should be just as interested as we are in such a cooperation.

    ///

    26 minAs permanent members of the Security Council, we bear the main responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security. Throught the relevant channels, we already conveyed to the US that armed force under mendacious pretexts against Syria, where, at the request of the legitimate government of the country, Russian troops have been deployed, could lead to grave repercussions.

    We call upon Western politicians to scale down their hawkish rhetoric, to meaningfully consider possible repercussions and to cease the reckless spill over of threats to global security. What military misadventures of the West brought about is well known to us if we consider the examples of Yugoslavia, Iraq and Libya.

    And nobody invested you with the power to act as policemen of the world and as investigators, procurators, judges and executioners all at the same time.

    We call fo your return to the legal fold to comply with the U N Charter and to jointly tackle problems that arise, rather than attempting at each step to advance your egotistical geopolitical game. All of the energy needs to be focused on support for the political process in Syria, to which it is necessary to constructively pull the efforts of all influential players. Russia always stands ready to engage in such cooperation.

    To conclude, Mr. President, I wish to take this opportunity to request an open briefing of the Security Council on the outcomes of the UN assessment mission in Raqqa and the situation in the Rahman camp. We see the way of members of the Commission attempting to create a smoke screen around this issue, which is a result of their actions in Syria, including the operations to rae Raqqa to the ground through bombings. No chemical provocations will divert attention from thism, from wha you’ve done. Thank you.

    Your mental gymnastics are simply magnificient, and quite amusing to be honest.

    You think people like the Clintons, the Bushes, the Obamas, the Blairs, and the Mays are influenced by religious belief? No, their religion is money and power
     
    The above quote of yours brought to my mind an excerpt from the 2006 paper, The Israel Lobby written by Harvard’s JFK School of Government professor of International Affairs Stephen Walt and Chicago University professor of Political Sciences John Mearsheimer in which they explain how the Lobby effectively makes politicians dance to its tune:

    AIPAC itself, however, forms the core of the Lobby’s influence in Congress. Its success is due to its ability to reward legislators and congressional candidates who support its agenda, and to punish those who challenge it. Money is critical to US elections (as the scandal over the lobbyist Jack Abramoff’s shady dealings reminds us), and AIPAC makes sure that its friends get strong financial support from the many pro-Israel political action committees. Anyone who is seen as hostile to Israel can be sure that AIPAC will direct campaign contributions to his or her political opponents.
     
    https://www.lrb.co.uk/v28/n06/john-mearsheimer/the-israel-lobby

    And this article by Philip Weiss


    At Lobelog, Jim Lobe and Eli Clifton say bluntly, the choice satisfied Trump’s biggest donor. “Adelson, a huge supporter of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, likely played a critical role in Bolton’s ascendancy.”
     
    http://www.unz.com/article/trump-appointed-bolton-because-republicans-desperately-need-adelsons-money/

    And, even Jews themselves admit Jewish money makes or brakes US politicos.

    https://www.timesofisrael.com/jewish-donors-filling-candidates-war-chests-especially-clintons/

    I am curious to see what mental gymnastics are you able to come up with - after reading that well researched paper to which I am linking to above and also knowing how the pro Israel donor Adelson single handedly had the war hawk, pro Iraq war, pro Iran and Syria US military intervention, arch neocon Bolton apointed as National Security adviser - to explain the curious fact being that anyone following the money, more often than not, will find pro Israel Jewish donors at the end of the trail, be it Adelson, Saban or Rothschild.

    I am curious to see what mental gymnastics are you able to come up with … to explain the curious fact being that anyone following the money, more often than not, will find pro Israel Jewish donors at the end of the trail, be it Adelson, Saban or Rothschild.

    Nothing to explain. It’s a fact. Some powerful Jews in the West see themselves as part of a Jewish nation living among another nation, and they use their wealth and organizations to promote Jewish interests over and above, or even contrary to, the interests of the larger society. I deplore the lack of loyalty and patriotism of such Jews, although as I indicated, I do not think that the mentality of such Jews is predominant among ordinary Jews living today in Western nations.

    The power of the Jewish lobby reflects both the wealth of Jews and also the lack of national commitment of non-Jewish Americans, Canadians, Brits, etc. Why is it that people like Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, and the Duke of Westminster don’t out-donate the likes of the Adelsons and Rothschilds, but in the greater national interest, not some sectional interest? The reason that they don’t, I think is two-fold.

    First, Christian civilization emphasizes the importance of the individual, not the group. As such, even our present post-Christian civilization still has a meritocratic tendency, which means it assumes that everyone is for himself, without an overriding obligation to the collective. This makes Christian civilization particularly vulnerable to hostile sub-groups that act collectively. How this played out in Russia is documented in Alexandr Solzhenitsyn’s Two Hundred Years Together, which the Jewish-dominated, English-language publishing community will not publish in English translation [or have the Solzhenitsyn family refused to grant rights to an an English-language publisher?].

    It is a story of exploitation, reaction, indignant counter-reaction, brutality, kindness, callous indifference and generous sympathy. A disaster, in other words, with mitigating acts of individual decency that is playing out again throughout the West today, with Jewish exploitation of the host society by way of the porn industry, Hollywood’s misrepresentations of history, banking malpractice, everlasting whinging about the Holocaust as if every non-Jew is somehow responsible even if they hadn’t yet been born at the time it occurred etc., provocations leading to anti-Semitism, and more provocative anti-anti-Semitism.

    The second factor, is the collapse of Christianity, not primarily due to Jewish influence but to the influence of Western intellectuals: people such as Bertrand Russell, John Dewey, the mad evolutionary biologist, Richard Dawkins, who’s too dim to see the evolutionary significance of religion, and just about every university teacher.

    In lieu of a religion, the intellectual class of the post-Christian West have grasped with enthusiasm the dictates of political correctness which they enforce throughout the education system, in legislation and in the corporate world in ways that are contrary to the Western tradition of free speech (e.g., Catholic Maquette University’s dismissal of Professor John MacAdams for defending the right of students to express their opposition to gay marriage) and free market economics (e.g., the punishment of a baker for refusing to bake a gay wedding cake — whatever a gay wedding cake may be). [The court judgement based on Sotomeyer's contention that if you set up in business to sell cakes you have to sell them to anyone, is rubbish because the baker in question did not set up to sell any type of cake, he set up shop only to sell heterosexual wedding cakes (whatever heterosexual wedding cake may be, not queer wedding cakes). But Sotomeyer was placed on the court to enforce PC nonsense and she's doing her job in destroying the nations.]

    No... First, the Christian civilisation emphasises the importance of racial supremacy. It is this cursed ideology which propelled it to travel far and wide, enabling it to pillage much to begin its intellectual quest, and to eventually setup a world order which enables continued plunder, so as to sustain its intellectual momentum.

    The foundation of the Christian civilisation was constructed upon unspeakable evil. For that, its pagan denizens will pay a commensurate price on the Day of Reckoning.

    I don’t know what interest China has in region.

    But China and Russia have a pact of sorts:

    http://www.china.org.cn/english/2002/Jul/36991.htm

    In July 2001 in Moscow, Chinese President Jiang Zemin and Russian President Vladimir Putin signed the Sino-Russian Good-Neighborly Treaty of Friendship and Cooperation. This came as a natural development of increasingly good Sino-Russian relations over the previous decade. The Treaty represents a milestone in the road of friendship be,,,,,,
    continued at link.

    Since China has signed a non aggression pact with Russia they would ether go with Russia or stay out of it.

    The US would have Saudi, Israel and France (maybe)
    Iran would have Russia.
    If it ever became a ground war a lot of shittes would join up with Iran
    As for Turkey, who knows.
    Egypt I think would stay out.

    Military experts say Saudi’s A/F and army isn’t worth a shit, they have billions in equipment they don’t know how to use against a real opponent. Israel also highly overrated.

    So who knows? I guess we are all just guessing and waiting.

    Originally, a non-Jew who does work on Sabbath that a Jew cannot do. In modern times, it is a non-Jew who toadies to the every wish and whim of the Jews, especially in politics, or a non-Jew who is heavily supportive of Israel.

Despite near-universal literacy rates, near-universal internet access and near-infinite information availability, most people are politically ignorant and apathetic, and most of the non-apathetic [pathetic?] people unconditionally worship Israel and/or reflexively hate Putin and Assad. Even highly "educated" people overwhelmingly tend to buy into one of the two mainstream [read: harmful not just to US interests but world peace overall] narratives on foreign policy.

    Yes, Prescott Bush, grandfather of Dubya, was a director of the Union Bank Corp., which acted for the Thyssen family in the management of the Silesian Steel Corp. for which the Auschwitz concentration camp was built as a source of labor. They also supplied Hitler's Sturmabteilung, or Brown shirts, with small arms.

    The Bush's are like the Clintons, a political family not content merely to serve the money power but intent on making politics a means to so enrich themselves as to become powerful elements of the money power.

    Vytautus the Lithuanian warlord brought Jewish Khazar mercenaries from the Crimea to Lithuania in 1392 to be landlords to the Christian Serfs
     
    Never heard of it. Could you suggest some reading material?

    As far as Zionism year 1666 is known for various Zionist activism. At it happening outside of Poland and concerned mostly Sephardim Jews.

    In the middle of the 16th century, Joseph Nasi, with the support of the Ottoman Empire, tried to gather the Portuguese Jews, first to migrate to Cyprus, then owned by the Republic of Venice, and later to resettle in Tiberias. Nasi – who never converted to Islam[40][41][notes 1] – eventually obtained the highest medical position in the empire, and actively participated in court life. He convinced Suleiman I to intervene with the Pope on behalf of Ottoman-subject Portuguese Jews imprisoned in Ancona.[40] Between the 4th and 19th centuries, Nasi's was the only practical attempt to establish some sort of Jewish political center in Palestine.[42]

    In the 17th century Sabbatai Zevi (1626–1676) announced himself as the Messiah and gained many Jews to his side, forming a base in Salonika. He first tried to establish a settlement in Gaza, but moved later to Smyrna. After deposing the old rabbi Aaron Lapapa in the spring of 1666, the Jewish community of Avignon, France prepared to emigrate to the new kingdom. The readiness of the Jews of the time to believe the messianic claims of Sabbatai Zevi may be largely explained by the desperate state of Central European Jewry in the mid-17th century. The bloody pogroms of Bohdan Khmelnytsky had wiped out one-third of the Jewish population and destroyed many centers of Jewish learning and communal life.
     

    The bloody pogroms of Bohdan Khmelnytsky had wiped out one-third of the Jewish population and destroyed many centers of Jewish learning and communal life.

    There weren’t exactly pogroms of Jews.

    Khmelnytsky was a Cossack of Ukraine. He led an uprising against the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth magnates in 1648–1654 which resulted in the creation of a Cossack state.
    The uprising he led was against Polish nobles who kept accumulating land by less than honest means (including Khmelnytsky’s own estate) and turning it over to renters, Jews who would lease it out for a fee…too high a fee for the farmers.
    The Cossacks, allied with the Crimean Tatars and local peasants and fought against the armies and forces of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth. The Jews were on the side of the nobles as they had special deals such as making money off leasehold fees.

    So the Jews got killed just like all the other losers on the wrong side of those battles. The Cossacks were not known for being merciful to their enemies, Jewish or not Jewish. They also killed a bunch of Catholics as they too were aligned with the commonwealth .

Moreover, there is ample evidence that the U.S-sponsored “rebels” (aka Al Qaeda affiliated terrorists) rather than the government of Bashar Al Assad are not only in possession of chemical weapons, they have been trained by the Pentagon.
    According to CNN report by Barbara Starr dated September 2013: "Pentagon proposes training moderate rebels."

    Ron Unz posted a video of the Russian envoy's speech at UN today (Apr 11 18).

    Rough notes from near the end to the conclusion of his remarks:

    “And you are misguided if you think tha thou have friends So called friends of yours are only those who cannot say no to you. And this is the sole criterion for friendship in your understanding . Russia has friends and unlike yourselves we do not have adversaries.
    We do not view the wordl through that prism. And yes, international terrorism, that is our enemy. However, we continue to propose cooperation. This need to be respectful and mutual cooperation, it needs to go towards resolving real and not imagined problems. And you should be just as interested as we are in such a cooperation.

    ///

    26 minAs permanent members of the Security Council, we bear the main responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security. Throught the relevant channels, we already conveyed to the US that armed force under mendacious pretexts against Syria, where, at the request of the legitimate government of the country, Russian troops have been deployed, could lead to grave repercussions.

    We call upon Western politicians to scale down their hawkish rhetoric, to meaningfully consider possible repercussions and to cease the reckless spill over of threats to global security. What military misadventures of the West brought about is well known to us if we consider the examples of Yugoslavia, Iraq and Libya.

    And nobody invested you with the power to act as policemen of the world and as investigators, procurators, judges and executioners all at the same time.

    We call fo your return to the legal fold to comply with the U N Charter and to jointly tackle problems that arise, rather than attempting at each step to advance your egotistical geopolitical game. All of the energy needs to be focused on support for the political process in Syria, to which it is necessary to constructively pull the efforts of all influential players. Russia always stands ready to engage in such cooperation.

    To conclude, Mr. President, I wish to take this opportunity to request an open briefing of the Security Council on the outcomes of the UN assessment mission in Raqqa and the situation in the Rahman camp. We see the way of members of the Commission attempting to create a smoke screen around this issue, which is a result of their actions in Syria, including the operations to rae Raqqa to the ground through bombings. No chemical provocations will divert attention from thism, from wha you’ve done. Thank you.

    Bibi is adamant: Iran must leave Syria.
     
    I bet that Assad would gladly make a deal with Israel: return Golan Heights to Syria and stop bombing Syria in support of your Sunni terrorists and the Iranians will leave and never come back to Syria.

    But the only way to knock some sense into Israel would be to obliterate one city of Israel with the lowest Russian population in it.

    I bet that Assad would gladly make a deal with Israel: return Golan Heights to Syria and stop bombing Syria in support of your Sunni terrorists and the Iranians will leave and never come back to Syria.

    Assad has publicly stated that he welcomes 3 countries to help him rebuild Syria: Russia, China and Iran. These are the 3 countries that stuck with him through thick and thin during the last 7 years of civil war. Russia and China voted together 6 times against every U.N. resolution that attempted to sanction Assad. He knows who his friends are. He is not going to tell Iran to go away to please Israel, and he shouldn’t. F- Israel.

    Ah common' FB, Ed Schulz is the best. He has to bite his lip and let the shitheads tell the official BS from time to time, that's the job. Not to be the news, just to sort of be the host, and let the news flow, I missed that General, but I bet Ed probably, sensibly just let him spew, that's correct for that spot, Generals get a pass.

    If Ed keeps up being as good as he is, I expect him to start to ending the news with…"and that's the way it is'' anytime now.

    Tom Hartman was ineffective as all get out, and yet he thought he could usurp that sign off, he wasn't anchor material at all! '' and annoying advertising, (go buy popcorn... haha ), just another one now, they shaped it up pretty quick.

    Ed says a lot by just hesitating and delivery, you know he's doing his best to let the viewer form their own opinion if they have one. I get a kick out of the liberal vs conservative teams they put on, That beautiful gal that goes on, she shuts up a little, and doesn't go off the way she wants completely, that tells you that they are aiming at a little bit better viewer, they keep it wrapped a little bit.

    Trump needs to grow a brain and some balls, take on the real enemy -- the deep state. Fire Mueller, Rod Rosenstein and even Jeff Sessions, who is turning out to be a totally lame and weak AG. Replace him with Rudy Giuliani. Rod Rosenstein personally approved the FBI raid to Michael Cohen's office, and Cohen is sure to squeal when squeezed. Trump hired both, he loves Jews, now he's getting burnt by them.

    As for Syria, it's clear Assad would be insane to gas his own people now that he's already won the war. How curious the timing, just after Trump announced he wants the US out of Syria, and after Israel's getting heat from everyone on their latest shootings of Palestinian protesters. This latest chemical attack has Israel/Pentagon's fingerprints all over it.

    Rudy Giuliani? The same Rudy Giuliani who was complicit in 9/11? That one?

    most American politicians, like their counterparts in other Western nations, work for anyone with ready cash, . . . or ex KGB, including Vladimir Putin.
     
    George H W Bush was ex CIA before he became president. He created much of the mess that is in play today.

    H W differs from Putin in that Putin came from humble beginnings while Bush was scion of a family of bankers/war profiteers.

    jus' sayin'

    Bush was scion of a family of bankers/war profiteers.

    Yes, Prescott Bush, grandfather of Dubya, was a director of the Union Bank Corp., which acted for the Thyssen family in the management of the Silesian Steel Corp. for which the Auschwitz concentration camp was built as a source of labor. They also supplied Hitler’s Sturmabteilung, or Brown shirts, with small arms.

    The Bush’s are like the Clintons, a political family not content merely to serve the money power but intent on making politics a means to so enrich themselves as to become powerful elements of the money power.

    JUST A REMNDER

    The Syria civil war was started by Saudi. They recruited, armed and financed the early rebels that were later joined by ISIS sunnis.
    At that time Israel and Saudi became allies in the war on Syria.....Israel to provide its US influence, Saudi to provide the money.

    Saudi's motive was to prevent its spreading Shia influence in the region because it was a threat to the Sunni throne...i.e.,their place as the leading Kings and rulers of the ME
    Israel's motive was of course to destroy all states like Syria and Iran who might resist their aim of being the supreme hegemon of the ME.

    Its not about oil
    Its not about elites
    Its not about capitalism
    Its not about religion

    Its about the psychopath in Saudi, the psychopath in Israel and the US zionist and their bought politicians.
    Iow its all about keeping and getting Power, nothing else.

    So knock yourselves out making up all the theories you want. This however, is all there is to it.

    You are a deceitful deflecting liar. The juevil have made it clear since long that they wish to smash as many Arab states as possible to ensure turmoil in the region, so that they can live “peacefully.”

    Since this fits in quite neatly with Angloscum plans for world domination, they too are willing sponsors of the carnage.

    Hey, maybe Bolton has hacked into Trump's Twitter account. That would explain why he tweeted those threats against Syria and Russia, right? That's what his remaining supporters would like to believe, I'll bet.

    The choice of language, ” gas loving animal who enjoys killing his own people”, doesn’t sound like the Trump I used to love. Bolton was the son of a fireman and this language seems hard hat and ungrammatical. Not to speak of racist in a way that is not funny like Trump. Also, love affair with missiles.

He left Obama's entire administration in place, except for those who went willingly, then appointed every slimy asshole he could find to fill the positions left by Obama's crew who bailed out.

    Believe it or not, the "Christian Zionist" (I know it is a total oxymoron) movement and its rapture ready zombies represent an important Israeli 5th column within American politics, and within the so called "conservative moment", and there is no doubt that a lot of Trumpeters subscribe to this carnivalesque view of the Apocalypse. These are the people who have memorized every single word of Hal Lindsey's "The Late Great Planet Earth" and who believe that there will be a Russian invasion of the entire Middle East and that the Russian invasion force will be destroyed via divine intervention and by the Israeli Defense Forces (who in reality could not defeat a few thousand or so light infantry in Southern Lebanon); all this supposedly involves hastening the advent of the Antichrist. The utter nutcase John Hagee is a perfect example of the goy Zionist idolater.

    Ironically, on the other end of the spectrum, you have the left wing shabbos goyim hating on Russia because of its renascent Christian culture and its rejection of the real spirit of Antichrist as articulated by the rites of Sodom, transgenderism, multiculturalism and anti-anti-Semitism- the latter transposing into to hating anybody insufficiently effusive in praise of international Jewry and its machinations, including that most sacrosanct of new world pseudo-religions, the Church of Shoah or Holocaustianity.

    Playing both sides to the same end you have the neocons and the so called "liberal interventionists" who never met a war they didn't like or a bomb they were unwilling to drop. Their primary weaponized arm is AIPAC, which buys and sells members of Congress and elected officials like the cheap meretricious swine that most of them are.

    Trump's moment of fatal hubris may now truly be upon him (and us). He could not take on "the Armageddon Lobby" all at once and expect to survive or to retain his sanity. As the Greeks put it, "Those whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad."

    In coming decades, centuries and even millennia, should human civilization survive, school children, regular citizens and professional historians alike will look back in bewilderment at the phenomenon of Western civilizations and cultures brought to nothing, by the loss of their very minds and souls to an alien philosophy.

    That a culture, ANY culture anywhere, has significant numbers of its members committed to sacrificing themselves for the sake of ANOTHER people, all to attain some sort of theologically-promised state of “divine perfection” simply beggars belief. The degree to which outsiders have subverted the Western soul is mind-boggling.

    The lesson, as ever, is crystal clear for all to see: Allow a cultural paradigm which centers itself on anything other than your OWN place in the world, which enjoins you to sacrifice your own good for some nebulous, perhaps non-existent end, to exist in your midst, and suffer the consequences.

    You're obviously too emotional, for whatever reason, to see the situation clearly. Putin's restraint was widely supported both domestically and internationally - even among "people that count".

    That said, the time for restraint might be over.

    This is just the heady Yeltsin days all over again: *of course* Putin’s appeasement policy will be widely praised if it’s destroying Russia. If prefer to make my own judgments. Do we even see the same world in front of us: have Russia’s restraint and maturity won it many new friends, and led to the other Good Things which the appeasement advocates predicted? Or has Russian passivity emboldened their enemies? I think the record of the past years speaks for itself.

Some powerful Jews in the West see themselves as part of a Jewish nation living among another nation, and they use their wealth and organizations to promote Jewish interests over and above, or even contrary to, the interests of the larger society. I deplore the lack of loyalty and patriotism of such Jews, although as I indicated, I do not think that the mentality of such Jews is predominant among ordinary Jews living today in Western nations.

    The power of the Jewish lobby reflects both the wealth of Jews and also the lack of national commitment of non-Jewish Americans, Canadians, Brits, etc. Why is it that people like Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, and the Duke of Westminster don't out-donate the likes of the Adelsons and Rothschilds, but in the greater national interest, not some sectional interest? The reason that they don't, I think is two-fold.

    First, Christian civilization emphasizes the importance of the individual, not the group. As such, even our present post-Christian civilization still has a meritocratic tendency, which means it assumes that everyone is for himself, without an overriding obligation to the collective. This makes Christian civilization particularly vulnerable to hostile sub-groups that act collectively. How this played out in Russia is documented in Alexandr Solzhenitsyn's Two Hundred Years Together, which the Jewish-dominated, English-language publishing community will not publish in English translation [or have the Solzhenitsyn family refused to grant rights to an an English-language publisher?].

    It is a story of exploitation, reaction, indignant counter-reaction, brutality, kindness, callous indifference and generous sympathy. A disaster, in other words, with mitigating acts of individual decency that is playing out again throughout the West today, with Jewish exploitation of the host society by way of the porn industry, Hollywood's misrepresentations of history, banking malpractice, everlasting whinging about the Holocaust as if every non-Jew is somehow responsible even if they hadn't yet been born at the time it occurred etc., provocations leading to anti-Semitism, and more provocative anti-anti-Semitism.

    The second factor, is the collapse of Christianity, not primarily due to Jewish influence but to the influence of Western intellectuals: people such as Bertrand Russell, John Dewey, the mad evolutionary biologist, Richard Dawkins, who's too dim to see the evolutionary significance of religion, and just about every university teacher.

    In lieu of a religion, the intellectual class of the post-Christian West have grasped with enthusiasm the dictates of political correctness which they enforce throughout the education system, in legislation and in the corporate world in ways that are contrary to the Western tradition of free speech (e.g., Catholic Maquette University's dismissal of Professor John MacAdams for defending the right of students to express their opposition to gay marriage) and free market economics (e.g., the punishment of a baker for refusing to bake a gay wedding cake — whatever a gay wedding cake may be). [The court judgement based on Sotomeyer's contention that if you set up in business to sell cakes you have to sell them to anyone, is rubbish because the baker in question did not set up to sell any type of cake, he set up shop only to sell heterosexual wedding cakes (whatever heterosexual wedding cake may be, not queer wedding cakes). But Sotomeyer was placed on the court to enforce PC nonsense and she's doing her job in destroying the nations.]

    First, Christian civilization emphasizes the importance of the individual, not the group.

    No… First, the Christian civilisation emphasises the importance of racial supremacy. It is this cursed ideology which propelled it to travel far and wide, enabling it to pillage much to begin its intellectual quest, and to eventually setup a world order which enables continued plunder, so as to sustain its intellectual momentum.

    The foundation of the Christian civilisation was constructed upon unspeakable evil. For that, its pagan denizens will pay a commensurate price on the Day of Reckoning.

    No wonder you post anonymously. You write drivel.

    Christianity was a creation of the Roman empire and was designed to quell, not exacerbate, national and racial antagonisms. That is why proponents of the New World Order, Lionel Curtis, for example, consider the Sermon on the Mount so important. It expresses the univesalist ideology of Christianity, versus race-centered Judaism. It is also the reason Christianity is popular wherever it is not explicitly prohibited.

    , @SolontoCroesus
    German theologian and pastor Walter Grundmann attempted to compose "Christianity without the Hebrews," that would be consistent with German cultural values.

    Susannah Heschel has a near-monopoly on information (in English) about Grundmann; the daughter of a rabbi and an arch-zionist, Heschel calls Grundmann's movement "antisemitic," "the Nazi Christ."

    I would, of course, object to the appellation "Nazi," but I don't see why it should be any concern of hers if a people seek to fashion their religious beliefs around their own cultural values rather than feel forever yoked to Hebrew ideologies such as Passover (celebration of the slaughter of other people's children), and Purim, the overthrow of other people's government and the slaughter of masses of their innocent citizens -- killing 75,000 Persians in that day must have meant destroying an astronomical proportion of the population, perhaps similar to the > decimation of the German population in WWII. Then there's Choseness, a status NSDAP never claimed, despite the claims of "Nazi = Master Race" ideology.

    You saying that Theresa May, Hillary Clinton, George Dubya Bush and all the other scum for global empire are Jews? That’s obviously rubbish. Greed for wealth and power are universal and the prize of global empire offers the ultimate fulfillment of greed.
     
    May, Clinton, Merkel & Blair are all power hungry buggers partly coerced(by Jew owned media) and partly willingly working for the Jews out of self preservation.

    Bush was a moron misled by Jews.

    Without the Jews, they would all likely turn out to be very different leaders, probably not half as bad.

    Jews run the world, and they're running it to the ground.

    ” Bush was a moron misled by Jews. ”
    Not at all, according to senator Hollings in a 2004 speech, ‘that is politics’: promising AIPAC the Iraq war, if he got the jewish vote.
    The world’s problem with the USA has been since FDR that foreign policy was,and could, be determined by internal politics.
    This era is ending, hence the present battle and confusion in the USA.

    Vytautus the Lithuanian warlord brought Jewish Khazar mercenaries from the Crimea to Lithuania in 1392 to be landlords to the Christian Serfs
     
    Never heard of it. Could you suggest some reading material?

    As far as Zionism year 1666 is known for various Zionist activism. At it happening outside of Poland and concerned mostly Sephardim Jews.

    In the middle of the 16th century, Joseph Nasi, with the support of the Ottoman Empire, tried to gather the Portuguese Jews, first to migrate to Cyprus, then owned by the Republic of Venice, and later to resettle in Tiberias. Nasi – who never converted to Islam[40][41][notes 1] – eventually obtained the highest medical position in the empire, and actively participated in court life. He convinced Suleiman I to intervene with the Pope on behalf of Ottoman-subject Portuguese Jews imprisoned in Ancona.[40] Between the 4th and 19th centuries, Nasi's was the only practical attempt to establish some sort of Jewish political center in Palestine.[42]

    In the 17th century Sabbatai Zevi (1626–1676) announced himself as the Messiah and gained many Jews to his side, forming a base in Salonika. He first tried to establish a settlement in Gaza, but moved later to Smyrna. After deposing the old rabbi Aaron Lapapa in the spring of 1666, the Jewish community of Avignon, France prepared to emigrate to the new kingdom. The readiness of the Jews of the time to believe the messianic claims of Sabbatai Zevi may be largely explained by the desperate state of Central European Jewry in the mid-17th century. The bloody pogroms of Bohdan Khmelnytsky had wiped out one-third of the Jewish population and destroyed many centers of Jewish learning and communal life.

    The Syrians will just have to dig deeper bomb shelters and live underground for a while and still keep on wiping out the NATO irregulars (ISIS and what ever) until none of them is left.
     
    Maybe.
    Or, maybe, while they are in those shelters they can't wipe anyone.And, while they are in shelters the opponents get stronger.
    One can be wiped out in shelters too. Or when leave shelters there is not much left outside.

    Russia can just weather the storm, take some losses (its a soldier’s job to die in combat anyway) and kill some Americans, and thereafter participate more actively in Iraq and Afghanistan.
     
    Say, for a month?
    You sure?

    If the Viet Cong could survive underground while the Americans bombed everything above ground, and then emerge to fight when the bombardment stopped, then the Syrians can survive and fight that way also. But no nukes were used in Vietnam.

    Plus the US would have no air superiority were Russia to bring more anti aircraft weapons to theatre, so its only cruise missiles and conventional ballistic missiles to worry about.

    If Syria were to survive such an onslaught while at the same time subjecting Israel to similar bombardment with Russian cruise and Iskander ballistic missiles, Israel would cave in first. All the Jews and Saudi’s would run away to America. America’s allies are not as tough and hardened as Russia’s allies.

    Russia just needs to stalemate the situation, and then wait for America’s financial drag to do the rest. Slow grind.

    so your dismissive and offensive idiocy that things like the Skripal affair or 'Ghouta gas attack' are just incompetence and bungling, with no nefarious intention behind it, is a lie.

I explain how it could have worked here, the key point being that a nerve agent such as Novichok is the specific antidote to seafood poisoning.

    Your former military planners have got it wrong. At this point in time Russia is stronger on land and in the air than NATO / America. Only at sea is Russia weaker.

    Even if Syria is bombed by America / Israel its not the end of the world, because all America and Israel can do is bomb. They're unwilling to put hundreds of thousands of boots on the ground to occupy Syria, only Turkey can do that and Turkey is not too happy with the US at present. The Syrians will just have to dig deeper bomb shelters and live underground for a while and still keep on wiping out the NATO irregulars (ISIS and what ever) until none of them is left.

    Russia can just weather the storm, take some losses (its a soldier's job to die in combat anyway) and kill some Americans, and thereafter participate more actively in Iraq and Afghanistan. While America / NATO loves shock and awe, Russia has made the slow grind its specialty, and has transferred these techniques to the Syrians and Hezbollah.

    But if anyone uses nukes, whatever the yield, then the situation will get totally out of hand, nukes are the only way to get past the slow grind.

    The USM is occupying the oil rich East with Turkey & Israel trading all the illegal oil. This finance their terrorists army.

    Russia got nothing to milk but to supply poor SAA, with Iran struggling themselves under US sanction.

    So kids, who is going to pay the astromical expenses for the grinding war, army salary & ammunition, & feeding tens of millions returning Syrians refugees while rebuild basic amenities?

    China is probably the financial backer, but for how long it is willing to shoulder if Russia continue display the lacking of manly wills to retaliate once so to stop US Nato Israel dream of prolong aggression?

    USM & UK have only few casualties. Terrorists supply is unlimited, recruited & funded by Gulfs, trained by Turkey.

    But hundreds of Russian soldiers are dying including generals & pilots, Iran has declared thousands of elite guards slaughtered including senior generals & advisors, so are undeclared massive losses of Syrian SAA, Hezbollah & Iraqis fighters bearing the main blunt.

    All because Russia allow the West freedom in killing without slight resistance except a little whining & groaning like virgin girl in each rape, still wet dreaming of having a partition deals with its sweet darling West partners.

    Your info is out of date, probably purposely so. The Turks are neutral on the issue now, ever since the US tried a coup against Erdogan. The Turks are getting no oil no more, unless they can take it from the Kurds who are protected by the Americans, Russia blew up all the ISIS oil wells and infrastructure, even ISIS is virtually no more. So the biggest terrorist group is gone already, and the remaining smaller terrorist groupings are being mopped up. The terrorists are not a factor in Syria anymore.

    With no Turkey to contend with, the Middle East is now a walk in the park for Russia and Iran. With all their terrorists nearly wiped out, the US now wants to try a little something to disrupt the inevitable.

    Russia, Syria, Iran, etc can withstand hardship, can Israel and Saudi Arabia? The slow grind will continue until there is no more Americans in the Middle East, and that day is very soon. Russia survived Napoleon and Hitler, Trump is a school boy compared to those two.

    The U.S. is totally under Zionist control and is fighting Israels wars in the ME for the goal of a Zionist NWO, which was perpetrated by the Israeli attack on 911 and was assisted by the Zionist controlled deep state.

    All wars that America has been in beginning with WWI and every war since then has been fought by Americans for the Zionist bankers and their FED and IRS which were both created by the Zionists in 1913.

    See THE PROTOCOLS OF ZION to see what the Zionists have done and are doing to the world.

    Desert Fox, you mention those particular Protocols, and I agree. The attempt to push them back into Pandora’s box by getting a court ruling that they were forgeries, a nonsensical claim anyway, needs to be flushed down the latrine.

    One of the screams about them is that they are “anti-Semitic”. We could discuss that weapon word. But in any case those Protocols don’t cause us to hate Jews (most of whom are innocent and didn’t choose to the Jews), they cause us to be wary. If we know what’s going on we are less easily fooled.

    Whether Zionist bankers or the Zionist lobby took us into WW1 and WW2 might be debated, but Benjamin Freedman and Alison Weir are very credible on the topic.

    lots of rancor against the American people

    and it’s perfectly understandable, when you consider that many of them would be on board for doing whatever it is to bolster Israel.

    but then it isn’t just the American people who’re threatening to bomb Syria.

    the French are just as guilty

    just as it’s the Brits who someone here recently posted are just as convinced that Putin ordered the assassination of the former spy, as the Americans are that Assad is an ‘animal’.

    The average person, regardless of nationality, is a simpleton and a fool. The American people supporting war today (a definite minority) are no different than the Russian people a hundred years ago who supported the “workers paradise”.

    Petty, short sighted, messianic, exceptionally, murderously stupid. Pretty much most of France, and half of England.

    Everything the Americans are doing, the French and English are doing with just as much vigor, only on a smaller scale, befitting their military strength. But as far as the *principle* of waging aggressive war against Russia, whose nation should throw the first stone?

    Poland?

    Ukraine?

    Saudi Arabia?

    Japan? (Whose counting on the ZUS to sable rattle at China)

    There isn’t one nation in Europe that has the guts to stand up at the UN and demand that the ZUS get out of Syria, where they don’t belong and are in violation of every tenet of international law and human decency.

    So to pretend like this is all the fault of Joe the Plumber, because he happened to be born American and so he should stop all the zio-wars, is beyond idiotic.

    Joe voted for Trump specifically to end the Eternal Wars. We were all hoping that he would, because we’re all (at least most of us) sick to death of this monstrous evil, that isn’t only destroying hundreds of thousands of lives all over the planet, (in drooling homage to all things Israel), but is also destroying any potential future for the children of our own nation as well.

    GOOD! a lot of people are kneejerk saying. And I get it, I do. But if the American people (who do not want these wars) are all guilty, then so too are the Polish people, and French people and British people, all of whom are just as guilty.

    this is what it’s like to be a tax paying American these days

    forced to act as a sadistic monster, to amuse your most diabolical enemy

    exactly why we voted against the war sow

    The Russians knew, a hundred years ago what this was like, when they used Russians to impose the starvation blockade against Ukraine.

    The Brits knew, when they sent British pilots over Dresden, to temporarily sate the Fiend’s insatiable lust for the suffering of innocents

    The French know, when they bombed Libya into the stone age

    and yes, we Americans also know what it’s like to have our government betray us all for the thousandth time on behalf of a Fiend, who controls our money supply. And demands a continuous supply of innocent souls.

    Literally nobody is actually calling for war with Russia. It merely serves a lot of people's individual interests to be hysterical about it. Journalists sell stories, security forces get better funding and attention, politicians look tough etc etc etc

    well fuck face

    I think what you’re missing here is that the people of the planet are reeling from the mass-murders, serial atrocities, torture, drones, serial destabilizations, deaths in the hundreds of thousands, women and children maimed or displaced by the millions, entire nations terrorized, Yemini people starving to death as we speak, and a thousand other moral enormities and crimes against humanity that the zio-west has already imposed, and is imposing now, as I write this.

    so your dismissive and offensive idiocy that things like the Skripal affair or ‘Ghouta gas attack’ are just incompetence and bungling, with no nefarious intention behind it, is a lie.

    Not a mistake, but a deliberate lie on behalf of the scum who’re perpetrating all of these evils.

    Desert Fox, you mention those particular Protocols, and I agree. The attempt to push them back into Pandora's box by getting a court ruling that they were forgeries, a nonsensical claim anyway, needs to be flushed down the latrine.

    One of the screams about them is that they are "anti-Semitic". We could discuss that weapon word. But in any case those Protocols don't cause us to hate Jews (most of whom are innocent and didn't choose to the Jews), they cause us to be wary. If we know what's going on we are less easily fooled.

    Whether Zionist bankers or the Zionist lobby took us into WW1 and WW2 might be debated, but Benjamin Freedman and Alison Weir are very credible on the topic.

    Recommend John Colemans book The Committee of 300 , it can be had on amazon.com, he was a former MI6 agent and lays out the elites plan for a NWO.

    lots of rancor against the American people

    and it's perfectly understandable, when you consider that many of them would be on board for doing whatever it is to bolster Israel.

    but then it isn't just the American people who're threatening to bomb Syria.

    the French are just as guilty

    just as it's the Brits who someone here recently posted are just as convinced that Putin ordered the assassination of the former spy, as the Americans are that Assad is an 'animal'.

    The average person, regardless of nationality, is a simpleton and a fool. The American people supporting war today (a definite minority) are no different than the Russian people a hundred years ago who supported the "workers paradise".

    Petty, short sighted, messianic, exceptionally, murderously stupid. Pretty much most of France, and half of England.

    Everything the Americans are doing, the French and English are doing with just as much vigor, only on a smaller scale, befitting their military strength. But as far as the *principle* of waging aggressive war against Russia, whose nation should throw the first stone?

    Poland?

    Ukraine?

    Saudi Arabia?

    Japan? (Whose counting on the ZUS to sable rattle at China)

    There isn't one nation in Europe that has the guts to stand up at the UN and demand that the ZUS get out of Syria, where they don't belong and are in violation of every tenet of international law and human decency.

    So to pretend like this is all the fault of Joe the Plumber, because he happened to be born American and so he should stop all the zio-wars, is beyond idiotic.

    Joe voted for Trump specifically to end the Eternal Wars. We were all hoping that he would, because we're all (at least most of us) sick to death of this monstrous evil, that isn't only destroying hundreds of thousands of lives all over the planet, (in drooling homage to all things Israel), but is also destroying any potential future for the children of our own nation as well.

    GOOD! a lot of people are kneejerk saying. And I get it, I do. But if the American people (who do not want these wars) are all guilty, then so too are the Polish people, and French people and British people, all of whom are just as guilty.

    this is what it's like to be a tax paying American these days

    https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/13/b1/77/13b177ff6cf40918614f6231480a6978.jpg

    forced to act as a sadistic monster, to amuse your most diabolical enemy

    exactly why we voted against the war sow

    The Russians knew, a hundred years ago what this was like, when they used Russians to impose the starvation blockade against Ukraine.

    The Brits knew, when they sent British pilots over Dresden, to temporarily sate the Fiend's insatiable lust for the suffering of innocents

    The French know, when they bombed Libya into the stone age

    and yes, we Americans also know what it's like to have our government betray us all for the thousandth time on behalf of a Fiend, who controls our money supply. And demands a continuous supply of innocent souls.

    In coming decades, centuries and even millennia, should human civilization survive, school children, regular citizens and professional historians alike will look back in bewilderment at the phenomenon of Western civilizations and cultures brought to nothing, by the loss of their very minds and souls to an alien philosophy.

    That a culture, ANY culture anywhere, has significant numbers of its members committed to sacrificing themselves for the sake of ANOTHER people, all to attain some sort of theologically-promised state of "divine perfection" simply beggars belief. The degree to which outsiders have subverted the Western soul is mind-boggling.

    The lesson, as ever, is crystal clear for all to see: Allow a cultural paradigm which centers itself on anything other than your OWN place in the world, which enjoins you to sacrifice your own good for some nebulous, perhaps non-existent end, to exist in your midst, and suffer the consequences.

    It is not the first time it's happened, but I thought the world had done with such occurrences. Seems I was dead wrong.

    I agree with almost everything you have written. The contemporary west’s moral and spiritual paradigm would appear to be the rankest forms of masochistic hatred and rejection of our own cultural identity and authentic spiritual heritage for the sake of the exaltation of the true alien and parasitical infestation, namely international Jewry and its host of other alien cultures as auxiliaries in the overthrow of Christian European culture- almost complete at this point.

    Everything you say about the powers of the British monarch is incorrect.

    What you seem not to know is that there was a civil war between the crown and parliament. The Parliamentary forces won and axed off the king's head. Subsequently the monarchy was restored but the conflict between crown and parliament resumed, resulting in a revolution.

    The King, fearing for his neck, fled to France where he remained until his death. Meantime, In England, a Dutch invasion force headed by William of Orange marched on London to the approbation of the crowds, and with the support of the head of the British army, Winston Churchill's ancestor, the Duke of Malborough.

    Following Williams installation as monarch, there were negotiations between the crown and parliament resulting in the Act of Settlement, which legally and permanently restricted the power of the monarch and made parliament permanently supreme.

    The fact that much is done in the name of the crown does not mean that the crown wields effective power. Just as most of Canada is owned in the name of the crown it does not mean that Canadians pay rent to QEII for the use of her land. In reality, it is the Federal and Provincial governments who wield the power of the Crown in Canada, as does the Parliament in Westminster, in the UK.

    The role of the monarchy is mainly to serve as a focus for national loyalty. As Baghot, author of the British Constitution (in 1867) wrote, "men are ruled not by their imagination, but by their lack of it." Hence the need for the monarch as a unifying symbol of power whereas real power is, as Baghot put it,wielded by the man on the Clapham omnibus (i.e., the educated middle class of Baghot's day, the people who made up the top ranks of the Foreign Office, the Treasury, etc., etc.) equivalent to today's deep state.

    Everything you say about the powers of the British monarch is incorrect.

    Refer to the link I posted previously.

    These powers were officially released by the Blair government, whose wife is a mentally ill republican (but I repeat myself).

    I certainly did not dispute the supremacy of parliament, which is codified in the English Bill of Rights.

    I only described the reserve powers of the monarch, which do indeed exist.

    In practice, these powers have only been exercised at the request of the cabinet in the 20th century, with the exception of the appoint of Alec Douglas-Home as prime minister.

    They are today as a practical matter a convenient way for the cabinet to avoid submitting government policy to parliamentary votes.

    But they do exist, and I find it strange that you dispute they exist. Pride perhaps?

    Yes, this is the case in practice. But legally, the Crown does have a considerable amount of power (though not the power to make law, tax, or supply).

    And this power was actually exercised in recent history in Australia with the dismissal of Gough Shitlam, the worst prime minister in Australian history.

    The role of the monarchy is mainly to serve as a focus for national loyalty. As Baghot, author of the British Constitution (in 1867) wrote, “men are ruled not by their imagination, but by their lack of it.” Hence the need for the monarch as a unifying symbol of power whereas real power is, as Baghot put it,wielded by the man on the Clapham omnibus (i.e., the educated middle class of Baghot’s day, the people who made up the top ranks of the Foreign Office, the Treasury, etc., etc.) equivalent to today’s deep state.

    In practice, yes, the monarch is simply the official national celebrity of Britain. The monarch’s practical role in Canada, Australia, NZ, etc. is even lesser than that.

    But this is only because the House of Windsor is completely spineless and pathetic.

    A real monarch would initiate a plan to destroy parliamentary control and employ his Royal Prerogative to do so.

    And don’t forget that in Bagehot’s time Prince Albert actually exerted real power at times. Without Prince Albert’s intervention it’s quite likely that the Trent Affair would’ve led to war between Britain and America.

    Which of course proves that Prince Albert was just another idiot in a long line of British royal cucks. War with America in 1862 was in Britain’s self-interest. Failure to declare war sealed Britain’s fate as the world’s leading power.

    And the reason war was not declared is even more pathetic. Britain had decided to worship negroes for some baffling reason.

    The USM is occupying the oil rich East with Turkey & Israel trading all the illegal oil. This finance their terrorists army.

    Russia got nothing to milk but to supply poor SAA, with Iran struggling themselves under US sanction.

    So kids, who is going to pay the astromical expenses for the grinding war, army salary & ammunition, & feeding tens of millions returning Syrians refugees while rebuild basic amenities?

    China is probably the financial backer, but for how long it is willing to shoulder if Russia continue display the lacking of manly wills to retaliate once so to stop US Nato Israel dream of prolong aggression?

    USM & UK have only few casualties. Terrorists supply is unlimited, recruited & funded by Gulfs, trained by Turkey.

    But hundreds of Russian soldiers are dying including generals & pilots, Iran has declared thousands of elite guards slaughtered including senior generals & advisors, so are undeclared massive losses of Syrian SAA, Hezbollah & Iraqis fighters bearing the main blunt.

    All because Russia allow the West freedom in killing without slight resistance except a little whining & groaning like virgin girl in each rape, still wet dreaming of having a partition deals with its sweet darling West partners.

    Time is at whose side for grinding war, think about it?

    “USM & UK have only a few casualties.”

    “On the evening of February 12, the Russian center for reconciliation received a telephone call from the resident a settlement in the Idlib province, informing them about a forthcoming provocation, using poisonous chemicals, to air it on a foreign television channel.

    “The suffering of these two Shia Muslim villages — marooned in the midst of Nusra Front-led, terrorist-occupied Idlib — is indescribable. The White Helmets’ call for the extermination and burning of these villages is a murderous and deeply sectarian act and could not be further from their lofty claims of “neutrality.” Infamous ex-White Helmet Muawiya Hassan Agha was present at Rashideen when the massacre was carried out. He is known for his involvement in the execution of two SAA prisoners of war in Khan Touman, Aleppo in May 2016.
    I was in Aleppo one day after this tragedy and was able to speak with survivors and mothers whose children had been abducted and taken to Turkey by White Helmet operatives and Nusra Front terrorists. A total of 114 are still missing, the majority being children. I also returned to Aleppo in July 2017 to interview survivors and families of the missing, who identified Agha as having been at the scene prior to and immediately after the suicide bomb attack.”

    First, Christian civilization emphasizes the importance of the individual, not the group.
     
    No... First, the Christian civilisation emphasises the importance of racial supremacy. It is this cursed ideology which propelled it to travel far and wide, enabling it to pillage much to begin its intellectual quest, and to eventually setup a world order which enables continued plunder, so as to sustain its intellectual momentum.

    The foundation of the Christian civilisation was constructed upon unspeakable evil. For that, its pagan denizens will pay a commensurate price on the Day of Reckoning.

    No… First, the Christian civilisation emphasises the importance of racial supremacy.

    No wonder you post anonymously. You write drivel.

    Christianity was a creation of the Roman empire and was designed to quell, not exacerbate, national and racial antagonisms. That is why proponents of the New World Order, Lionel Curtis, for example, consider the Sermon on the Mount so important.

    The USM is occupying the oil rich East with Turkey & Israel trading all the illegal oil. This finance their terrorists army.

    Russia got nothing to milk but to supply poor SAA, with Iran struggling themselves under US sanction.

    So kids, who is going to pay the astromical expenses for the grinding war, army salary & ammunition, & feeding tens of millions returning Syrians refugees while rebuild basic amenities?

    China is probably the financial backer, but for how long it is willing to shoulder if Russia continue display the lacking of manly wills to retaliate once so to stop US Nato Israel dream of prolong aggression?

    USM & UK have only few casualties. Terrorists supply is unlimited, recruited & funded by Gulfs, trained by Turkey.

    But hundreds of Russian soldiers are dying including generals & pilots, Iran has declared thousands of elite guards slaughtered including senior generals & advisors, so are undeclared massive losses of Syrian SAA, Hezbollah & Iraqis fighters bearing the main blunt.

    All because Russia allow the West freedom in killing without slight resistance except a little whining & groaning like virgin girl in each rape, still wet dreaming of having a partition deals with its sweet darling West partners.

    Time is at whose side for grinding war, think about it?

    Your info is out of date, probably purposely so. The Turks are neutral on the issue now, ever since the US tried a coup against Erdogan. The Turks are getting no oil no more, unless they can take it from the Kurds who are protected by the Americans, Russia blew up all the ISIS oil wells and infrastructure, even ISIS is virtually no more. So the biggest terrorist group is gone already, and the remaining smaller terrorist groupings are being mopped up. The terrorists are not a factor in Syria anymore.

    With no Turkey to contend with, the Middle East is now a walk in the park for Russia and Iran. With all their terrorists nearly wiped out, the US now wants to try a little something to disrupt the inevitable.

    Russia, Syria, Iran, etc can withstand hardship, can Israel and Saudi Arabia? The slow grind will continue until there is no more Americans in the Middle East, and that day is very soon. Russia survived Napoleon and Hitler, Trump is a school boy compared to those two.

    You aren't so stupid as you behave in some replies. Yes its intended as outdated info in msm. But reality?

    Turkey FM just announced gassing monster Assad must go. That's how fast Turkey change its face, after seeing Russia weakness in not responding to Israel attack.

    You are childish to think Turkey is neutral or against US Nato. Turkey's Nato airbase remained the best protected air field for US Nato to attack Russians in Syria without risk of retaliation, with closest nuke aiming at Russia capital.

    Oils are still illegally trading everywhere, mind you. Northern Syria & Iraq borders are where Kurds pipe their oil to Turkey for sales, instead of inefficient miles long tankers.

    Guess for 7yrs where these terrorists are still getting their abundant supplies of pays, ammunition, armoured, tanks, latest weapons procured from US by Gulf states(RT: 5,000 precision guided missiles just delivered), fuels, electricity supply, food, medicine, broad band to broadcast their head chopping & white helmets uncensored YouTube/ FB? Abundant supply from West, Gulf, Turkey, Jordan & Isreal, through borders & West airlifts.

    Heavy assets are delivered massively to US new Jordan's airbase & Syria bases now. US Nato Warships & subs are gathering. Manpads will be distributed to terrorists to give Russia another Afghanistan war. Who grinding who?

    Russia, Syria, Iran, etc can withstand hardship, can Israel and Saudi Arabia?
     
    The West, Israel & Gulf states are life as usual, with armchair generals giving killing orders to terrorists & Kurds. Russia, Iran, SAA?

    What suffering are you talking about, kid. Its going to be another shooting fish in barrels soon in Syria after West gathered all their war machines. Except Russia will struggle with its anti missiles system and brag how many it has intercepted without declaring how many actual deaths.

    Grind we shall see who outlast who without Russia actually taking out launch vessels & their bases. What a stupid thing to spew from a top general mouth, to self declare chickening before fight.

    "Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity."

    The Skripal affair was probably incompetently analysed food poisoning through bureaucratic, political and media hysteria.

    The Ghouta gas attack never happened and was incompetently reported on through bureaucratic, political and media hysteria.

    All of the diplomatic manoeuvrings are a big yawn. Nothing will come of any of it. Certainly not the apocalypse that Shamir so ludicrously and hysterically alludes to.

    A book of media hysterias from BSE to pissgate to pizzagate to acid rain to cellphone radiation to the satanic panic to this article could have as many entries as the dictionary of some languages.

    Oh no, some diplomats were expelled! Oh no, some ships sailed around the world!

    Literally nobody is actually calling for war with Russia. It merely serves a lot of people's individual interests to be hysterical about it. Journalists sell stories, security forces get better funding and attention, politicians look tough etc etc etc

    The Skripal affair was probably incompetently analysed food poisoning through bureaucratic, political and media hysteria.

    Food poisoning may have been an ingenious set up for the “proof ” of the use of the nerve agent, Novichok (“as developed in Russia,” as the British authorities never fail to mention). I explain how it could have worked here, the key point being that a nerve agent such as Novichok is the specific antidote to seafood poisoning.

    "Has the Russian Government moved their C&C and important figures to their safe havens in the Urals? There is a lot of military activity afoot in Russia since Trump opened his mouth and inserted his foot with his latest Syria threats and promises of missile strikes on Syria.
    Has President Putin invoked Articles 87 and 88 of the Russian Constitution that deals with the declaration of a national emergency in the event of direct threats of aggression to the Russian Federation? Given the situation, this is most probably so.
    Recent military activity (they're calling it training) that stretches from Siberia to the Urals: https://themoscowtimes.com/news/russia-holds-mass-military-drills-across-country-61100
    Putin's annual address to the Federal Assembly on March 1st included a simulated launch of the Sarmat, and the claim the latest edition of the Sarmat has almost no distance limitations. One could conclude that these are Putin's final warning to the West.
    Even Turkey has warned that a potential Russia - U.S. conflict in Syria will set the Mideast on fire:" http://tass.com/world/999026
    Russia’s ambassador to Lebanon said yesterday that any U.S. missiles fired at Syria would be shot down and the launch sites targeted, a step that could trigger a major escalation in the Syrian war:" https://www.reuters.com/article/us-mideast-crisis-syria-russia-diplomat/russian-envoy-to-lebanon-any-u-s-missiles-fired-at-syria-will-be-shot-down-idUSKBN1HI0PU

    The idea that Trump is covering an American retreat from the ME in a cloud of squid ink has plausibility, although since Trump habitually distracts from his real objectives, if any, by a stream of hype, his eventual destination is difficult to anticipate.

    How do you justify the existence of this paper, clearly saying and proving how the Jewish lobby was critical in getting the US to invade Iraq?

    Are the two respected academics who wrote the paper, Harvard’s JFK School of Government professor of International Affairs Stephen Walt and Chicago University professor of Political Sciences John Mearsheimer part of some anti Joo Nazi conspiracy?

    Is this paper the proof of some Gentile conspiracy to resucitate the myth of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion in order to victimise millions of poor, defenseless little Joos?

    Or was in fact the loose coalition of individuals and organisations who actively work to steer US foreign policy in a pro-Israel direction, AKA the Jewish Lobby, a critical factor in getting the US to invade Iraq, and now it is being critical also in trying to get the US to intervene in Syria and Iran, because they are on a hitlist of historical enemies of Israel, as were Lybia, Egypt and Iraq?

    First, Christian civilization emphasizes the importance of the individual, not the group.
     
    No... First, the Christian civilisation emphasises the importance of racial supremacy. It is this cursed ideology which propelled it to travel far and wide, enabling it to pillage much to begin its intellectual quest, and to eventually setup a world order which enables continued plunder, so as to sustain its intellectual momentum.

    The foundation of the Christian civilisation was constructed upon unspeakable evil. For that, its pagan denizens will pay a commensurate price on the Day of Reckoning.

    German theologian and pastor Walter Grundmann attempted to compose “Christianity without the Hebrews,” that would be consistent with German cultural values.

    Susannah Heschel has a near-monopoly on information (in English) about Grundmann; the daughter of a rabbi and an arch-zionist, Heschel calls Grundmann’s movement “antisemitic,” “the Nazi Christ.”

    I would, of course, object to the appellation “Nazi,” but I don’t see why it should be any concern of hers if a people seek to fashion their religious beliefs around their own cultural values rather than feel forever yoked to Hebrew ideologies such as Passover (celebration of the slaughter of other people’s children), and Purim, the overthrow of other people’s government and the slaughter of masses of their innocent citizens — killing 75,000 Persians in that day must have meant destroying an astronomical proportion of the population, perhaps similar to the > decimation of the German population in WWII. Then there’s Choseness, a status NSDAP never claimed, despite the claims of “Nazi = Master Race” ideology.

    The choice of language, " gas loving animal who enjoys killing his own people", doesn't sound like the Trump I used to love. Bolton was the son of a fireman and this language seems hard hat and ungrammatical. Not to speak of racist in a way that is not funny like Trump. Also, love affair with missiles. Sounds like a fireman who enjoys lighting fires. Trump has admitted in the past to someone else using his twitter account.

    Funny, isn’t it, that since Bolton was appointed, Trump’s Twitter language has gone to hell? Be that as it may, Trump’s appointment of people no decent human being would allow near them shows that he’s either retarded himself or that he’s nothing like what he claimed to be during the campaign. He left Obama’s entire administration in place, except for those who went willingly, then appointed every slimy asshole he could find to fill the positions left by Obama’s crew who bailed out.

    I’d bet that he would have kept Obama’s entire gang if they had stayed with him. He’s either a fool or evil. There’s no other way I can see him.

    "Instead we should bring nukes to Khmeinim, and explicitly threaten Zionist regime with nuclear annihilation. I bet this will get them to back off."

    I respond:

    I think that's a bit too much. There are other ways to put the worst anti Russian, anti Christ Jews in their place so to speak.

    Vladimir Putin put the worst Yid Oligarch head of Yukos Oil in a public jail/cage then sentenced this anti Russian Yid to forced labor in Siberia.

    The Russians could use their influence with Polish Nationalists to simply dismantle the Aushwitz sacred 6 million gassed Jews Holy place and replace it with a Catholic monastery or a soccer field.

    Nobody has immortalized any Soviet Gulag Camp where the German soldiers who surrendered at Stalingrad were worked to death.

    One would think all Russia has to do is release the documents proving Stalin fabricated the Holohoax.

    Gorbachev took a swing at it by releasing the Auschwitz death books and proving it was a hoax.

    But I am sure there’s more. E.g. evidence that the alleged gas-chambers were built after the war ended. Interviews with survivors. Admission that German prisoners were tortured and families severely threatened to elicit “confessions”.

    It is interesting that Putin already outed Jews for being 85% of the Bolshevik leadership – to a meeting of Chabad Jews, of all places.

    The old fool has to be pushed, if he does not want to go by his own will, they decided.
     
    The neocons fought against Trump's election, but this has turned out much better than they could have dreamed. He is putty in their hands. The Deep State and their echo chamber in the media ensure that a steady stream of public scandals will keep Trump shell-shocked by his many sins. He will do what he's told. John Bolton will soon occupy the position of de-facto president while Trump will be locked in the White House basement.

    Correct. Americans may elect presidents but imperial politics determine whether they are permitted to wield power or are blocked or impeached. With dual (or triple) loyalty Jews dominating both major parties, Trump cannot withstand the assaults of the Jewish Left without the support of the Neocons. Only the Neocons can retain congressional Repub support for Trump. America today has only two capitals: San Francisco n Jerusalem, n they are fighting each other for control. The American voter has become irrelevant. Once they cast their ritual vote n their temple sacrifice is done, the priestly elites take over n palace intrigue between these factions determines whether the king survives.

  231. The Neocons may be amoral and unethical, stupid they are not. Inch by inch, blow by blow they are driving Russia out of Syria and exposing Russia’s inability to stand up to the might of the USA. If Trump does order massive hits on Syria, taking out the Russians as collateral damage, what can do the Russians really do in response? Nothing. And Trump has called their bluff. Short of crying Uncle, the Russians have made fairly clear that they won’t fight back. If they had intent to fight back, they would have moved their naval assets into the operations area.

    And there lies the brilliance of this plan: Show up in massive force at Syrian doorstep, close-in on the Russian naval base in Tartus, and see how the other feller responds. If Trump is wise he will not fire a single shot. The enemy has signalled willingness to lay down arms. The next step should be to invite him in for talks, make him eat crow, but package it up nice and sweet in a deal that makes clear who the dealer is going to be in future. The chances of it working out are better than 80%, IMHO. Especially if things are kept nice and polite, some good morsels are thrown, with promises of more if behaviour changes. The sheer brilliance of this plan, showing-up in the kind of force that the Russians could never have imagined, will be a true game-changer.

    Withdraw to lick wound or more humiliation, more casualties and self mocking, after it's non response to Israel attack making Putin & Russia top general a laughing stock infront the world.

    The Chinese analyst think US & West seeing Russia extreme weakness, will start to seize Russia assets world wide as they did to Iran, complete diplomatic & trade isolation, freezing Russia out from the world system including trade, Swifts, banking, energy trading in EU(another false flag in Germany), Olympics, sports, UN, etc. Deny its intl airspace usage.

    They may further embargo its shipping to grind its economic to halt since no consequence is expected, unlike NK or Iran will sink blockade West Navy.

    What can Russkies do except whining over its unwillingness to fight gloriously from start to nip the bud?

    But China has far vision & always kept its credibility. Before Russia crumpled, China will interfer, likely opening another war front in SCS with full trade war cranked up, short from direct interference with its SF in Syria using Iran as proxy which is capable to truly threaten the West/Israel military asset.

    China just release a alternative global transaction system similar to Swift for the world, unlike Russia's only for Rubles.

    Look guys you are missing the point here. I am not going rah rah for team USA. Nor am I jumping up and down with joy. As a passionate student of statecraft and political history, I am simply noting the brilliance of Mr. Trump's move. Machiavelli was undoubtedly brilliant, a genius actually. But he was also completely amoral. In the same way, Trump's move is quite simply brilliant, the ethics side of it is a separate issue altogether.

    Not a whimper has been heard from top Russian leadership, nor even half-hearted threats of response. What does that tell you? It tells me that the Russian bluff has been successfully called by President Trump. So who is the better player here, be it chess, poker or statecraft? Trump or Putin? I would bet my money on Trump.

    For the rest of us looking at events unfolding as the Hegemon flails and thrashes about, Foreman's anecdote from the Rumble in the Jungle comes to mind...


    "I thought he was just one more knockout victim until, about the seventh round, I hit him hard to the jaw and he held me and whispered in my ear: 'That all you got, George?' I realized that this ain't what I thought it was."
     
    It having dawned on him too late that he didn't understand the game, Foreman was already beaten. He had no Plan B and couldn't adjust fast enough to the fight as it was actually being fought. And so, he went down in the 8th round. I think we're somewhere in the 6th.
