Did you notice that when the United States were claiming 5000+ air sorties against ISIS/L, they could not show us a single verifiable footage of the actual attacks?
This is very revealing considering that during the early stages when they swept Iraq and Afghanistan with “Operation: Desert Storm” and “Operation: Enduring Freedom” there were CNN embedded journalists providing live shots from exploding Iraqi and Taliban positions.
But not in the case with ISIL.
What the mainstream media is focusing instead is the series of ISIS/L beheadings, to sow fear, of course.
Not that they never tried, but the simulation looked more akin to what happened in the World Trade Center in 2001. You know, cameras ready on standby and witnesses lived to tell the world.
Aside from that, US air force were also exposed to bombing empty buildings suggesting ISIS/L militants received prior intel.
Here’s the latest Russian air force video on how an ISIS/L ammunition depot was smashed with precision guided missiles.
Russian Su-34 bombers destroyed IS headquarters and a command post in the Aleppo province, Konashenkov said on Monday, adding that there had been “direct hits” on structures housing field commanders in Dayr Hafir and al-Bab.
“President Vladimir Putin accomplished in 72 hours what the US-led coalition could not achieve in a year of coordinated airstrikes against ISIS & ISIL, aka Fric and Frac. The revelation of the United States’ obviously fake war on terrorist groups inside Syria had to be covered up. It is in times like these that Washington has employed false flag operations and mass shootings in order to distract the American people and divert their attention. The sheer embarrassment that they have suffered at the hands of Putin is simply too much for them to bear. Such shocking revelations about coalition duplicity will also doom their agenda toward the establishment of Greater Israel.” read more
Putin Calls Out Washington
By Paul Craig Roberts
10:22 02.10.2015(updated 10:27 02.10.2015)
“We can no longer tolerate the state of affairs in the world.” President Vladimir Putin
By telling the truth at a time of universal deceit, Putin committed a revolutionary act. Referring to the slaughter, destruction, and chaos that Washington has brought to the Middle East, North Africa, and Ukraine, and the extreme jihadist forces that have been unleashed, Putin asked Washington: “Do you realize what you have done?”
Putin’s question reminds me of the question Joseph Welch asked witch-hunting Senator Joseph McCarthy: “Have you no sense of decency?” Welch’s question is attributed with initiating the decline of McCarthy’s career.
Perhaps Putin’s question will have the same impact and bring the reign of “American Exceptionalism” to an end.
If so, Putin has launched a revolution that will overthrow the world’s subservience to Washington.
Putin stresses the legality of Russia’s intervention in Syria, which is at the request of the Syrian government. He contrasts Russia’s respect for international law with the intervention in Syria of Washington and France, governments that are violating Syria’s sovereignty with unrequested and illegal military action.
The world sees that it is Washington and its vassals who “violate international norms” and not Russia.
The sanctimonious self-righteousness, behind which hides Washington’s self-serving unilateral actions, is revealed for all to see.
Washington relies on its arsenal of lies. Washington’s media-based disinformation apparatus was too hot to trot.
Just as the BBC’s TV reporter announced the premature destruction of World Trade Center Building 7 with the building clearly still standing in the background, Washington’s lie service announced the first civilian casualties of Russian air strikes “even before our planes got in the air,” noted President Putin in his comments on Washington’s disinformation warfare.
As a consequence of their subservience to Washington, the puppet states of Europe are being overrun by refugees from Washington’s wars that Europe so mindlessly enabled.
As the cost of being Washington’s vassals comes home to Europeans, the standings of European political parties will be affected. New parties and ruling coalitions are likely to follow more independent paths in order to protect themselves from the costs of the enormous mistakes that flow from Washington’s arrogance and hubris.
The breakup of the Empire is on the horizon.
Previously, Putin outed the White House as the “supplier of arms and logistics” to the Islamic State, ISIS/L.
Other financiers, of course, are Israel, Jordan, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia.
This UN General Assembly revealed that the Obama administration’s perpetual newspeak does not cut it anymore. A review of UN speeches by both Putin and Obama is almost painful to watch. Putin acted like a serious global statesman. Obama acted like a poseur flunking a screen test.
Putin’s key talking points could not but be easily accessible to the Global South — his prime audience, much more than the industrialized West.
1) The export of color — or monochromatic — revolutions is doomed.
2) The alternative to the primacy of statehood is chaos. This implies that the Assad system in Syria may be immensely problematic, but it’s the only game in town. The alternative is ISIS/ISIL/Daesh barbarism. There’s no credible “moderate opposition” — as there was not in NATO-“liberated” Libya.
3) Only the UN — as flawed as it may be — is a guarantor of peace and security in our imperfect, realpolitik geopolitical environment. [Sorry, Pepe, we disagree on that. The United Nations is not flawed, it’s perfectly doing what it is supposed to do, i.e. create the illusion of universal peace when it consented or turned a blind eye to the “color revolutions” in the Middle East and elsewhere.]
Gotta slay those myths
Washington believed its own Arab Spring myth in 2011, betting that after Tunis and Cairo, Damascus would fall in a flash.
The Beltway believed its own myth of “moderate rebels” taking power.
The Beltway did not listen to Syrian minorities warning about the danger of an extremist Sunni/Salafi-jihadi take over.
Thus the current Syrian tragedy; the end result of a formidably complex power play, political and religious, Syrian, regional and global.
ISIS/ISIL/Daesh — for all its barbarism — may eventually win a few battles, but it won’t control the whole of “Syraq”.
To defeat the cancer, there’s only one possibility: a real military campaign conducted by a real coalition including the US, Russia, Iran, Turkey, Saudi Arabia.
Washington though never joins a coalition that it cannot control at will.
Thus a possible road map of what may lie ahead — as debated by Obama and Putin, face to face, for 90 minutes in New York; a two-headed coalition, one led by the US, the other led by Russia, but “coordinating” on the ground.
Still, Moscow will be struggling to form a wide-ranging coalition duly approved by the UN.
The task is immense. “Syraq” will have to be reconstituted.
That implies an Iraq acceptable for all Iraqis — and that’s impossible to accomplish without Iran. And a Syria acceptable to all Syrians — and that’s impossible without Iran and Russia.
Washington after all would have never been able to accomplish both in the first place. The Empire of Chaos specializes in nation breaking, not nation building.
Gotta slay that dragon
Gorbachev wanted to integrate the USSR in the European family — aiming for a Europe from the Atlantic to the Pacific.
Post-Soviet Russia though was not even invited to enter the house. What happened was NATO colonization of the former Soviet space.
Gorbachev dreamed that the West would share peace dividends with Russia. What Russia got instead was a neoliberal shock — and a humiliated society treated as a loser of the Cold War. Exceptionalism prevailed.
Under Putin, Russia tried once again a strategic partnership with the EU. Does anyone remember Sergey Lavrov as late as 2011 swearing that modernization of Russia was ready to go as a pan-European project, just as in the time of Peter the Great?
Yet by 2007, Putin had changed the game, and was ready to openly contest the unipolar “order” — and slowly but surely project Russia back to the geopolitical limelight.
Post-Ukraine, still under sanctions, but armed with a strategic partnership with China, the time for a checkmate is now.
In New York, Putin even proposed the lineaments of a New World Order. The genuine article, not that “vision thing” concocted by Daddy Bush post-collapse of the USSR.
It would be an equitable, fair world order — where state sovereignty is respected, sanctions are meaningless, NATO ceases to expand ad infinitum and exceptionalism does not apply.
The devil will be in the (many) details, of course. For instance, if a coalition to fight ISIS/ISIL/Daesh is forged and blessed by the UN, it will need the — virtually impossible — cohabitation of Sunnis and Shi’ites.
And in the near future, Brussels will have to tame visceral internal antagonism to have the European Union interacting with the Russia-led Eurasia Economic Union (EEU), which by that time will be totally integrated with the China-led New Silk Roads.
What’s certain — for the overwhelming majority of the Global South — is that the Empire of Chaos made a mess everywhere, from Northern Africa and Southwest Asia to Russia’s western borderlands.
Putin now rides into the hellish mess ready to slay the dragon of chaos — and the machinations of the Empire of Chaos. His sword? The UN. No wonder checkmated neocons, neoliberalcons and “humanitarian” imperialists can barely conceal their apoplexy.
You can actually participate in the global efforts to cripple the Deep State organized criminal cabal's ability for genocide, while enjoying healthcare freedom at the same time, by boycotting Big Pharma for good.
