Raqqa is the symbolic Islamic State’s capital in Syria, right next to the Turkish border where weapons, drugs and oil are being swapped with full Turkey government’s knowledge. The Russians are providing air cover right now for the Syrian Army and patriotic opposition forces, reports said.
This is a very significant operation considering that once this city is recovered, this could spell the beginning of the end of ISIS terror in Syria. This is how Putin is starting to bring down the Illuminati militarily.
On the other hand, the Chinese authorities are undeterred from their Silk Road trajectory while abandoning highly politicized Saudi oil in favor of stable Russian oil.
“… during the December Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) in Johannesburg, South Africa, Xi Jinping announced that Beijing would provide African countries with $60 billion in financial aid and loans.
“Will it benefit Chinese interests? Of course, and why not? Will it benefit Africa? Yes, again. Unlike NATO’s endless wars, construction of infrastructure — railways, water navigation, electric power grids, lifts people up and enhances peace and stability,” the researcher underscores.
Besides expanding its influence in Africa, China is establishing deeper economic ties with European countries as a part of its One Belt, One Road initiative.
The initiative is intended to “place China firmly” into the large EU markets, linking the East and the West of the Eurasian continent through a vast network of high-speed railways and maritime routes. On the other hand, the initiative opens up a “golden opportunity” for the countries of Central and Eastern Europe, frustrated by the ongoing economic difficulties.
By doing this, Beijing is actually throwing its hat in the ring as Washington’s competitor in Europe: the US regards the EU as its own backyard.
“Beijing knows it’s merely a matter of time before the warhawks in Washington and Wall Street target China too,” Engdahl remarks, adding that the Chinese government has few illusions about Washington’s geostrategy.
He who hesitates is lost and Beijing knows this perfectly well. The country is moving forward, outstripping its Western rivals.
China has become the world leader in building high-speed rail lines, constructing more than 20,380 km of high-speed tracks over the past decade with another 16,775km (10,424 miles) domestically under construction or in planning.
“China is the world address in rail infrastructure today, while the West, led by the pathetic rail construction record of the USA, falls farther and farther behind,” Engdahl notes, pointing to the fact that Beijing envisages the construction of a Hungary-Serbia high-speed railway.
In addition to exporting “Chinese rail technology” to Europe, Beijing intends to invest in constructing and upgrading port facilities in the Baltic, Adriatic, and Black Seas.
However, the Chinese’s ambitions are far more grandiose, according to the historian: they aim to “disentangle the Eurasian countries from the destructive and bankrupt Dollar System.”
“Little wonder that Washington and the American oligarchs fear they are losing control of the world. China, especially in concert with Russia and the Eurasian states are leading an economic renaissance of a scale not seen in more than a century,” Engdahl underscores.
But what can Washington offer instead? Wars, more wars and another series of color revolutions.”
“China’s turn away from Saudi oil in favor of Russian supplies is a result of Chinese worries about Riyadh’s malign political influence, wrote Austria’s Junge Welt newspaper on Thursday.
Last week China’s General Administration of Customs (GAC) announced that Russia overtook Saudi Arabia as China’s largest crude oil supplier in November, the third time this year that Russian supplies have surpassed those from Saudi Arabia.
According to GAC figures, in November Chinese buyers purchased on average 949,925 barrels per day (bpd) of Russian crude oil in November, more than the 886,950 bpd from Saudi Arabia.
Junge Welt linked the development with a longer-term trend for Chinese importers to turn away from Saudi oil in favor of Russian crude, as they seek to diversify their sources of energy.
Saudi oil supply to China decreased from 55 million to 50 million tons in 2014, while the supply of Russian crude surged 36 percent, to reach 34 million tons, according to GAC.
“This export success has helped Russia to soften the effect of sanctions. At the same time it is an expression of the developing partnership in trade, energy and other economic areas between Moscow and Beijing,” wrote Junge Welt.”
Just a few hours ago, the Chinese Parliament authorizes the Chinese military to send armed forces abroad for the first time. This is another proof that WW3 has gone overt after two of its economic targets were bombed by the Cabal last August of this year.
“China has approved the law at a critical time for the country and for the world at large: terrorist attacks in Paris, the bombing of a Russian passenger jet over Egypt, and the rise of Daesh (Islamic State) are all pointing to the ever-growing threat of terrorism.”
“Terrorism” is the BRICS euphemism for the Cabalist Khazarian Mafia.
Russia, on the other hand, is dropping bombs in Raqqa, while advertising some of its new weapons.
“Russian combat aircraft have conducted 164 sorties and hit 556 terrorist targets in Syria over the past three days, the Russia’s General Staff said Monday.
“In three days, starting December 25, [Russian warplanes] conducted 164 sorties, hitting 556 terrorist targets in the provinces of Aleppo, Idlib, Latakia, Hama, Homs, Damascus, Deir ez-Zor and Raqqa,” chief of the Main Operational Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces Sergei Rudskoy told reporters.
Russian jets have intensified airstrikes to aid the anti-terrorist offensive of the Syrian army and patriotic opposition forces, he stated.
Lt.-Gen. Sergei Rudkoy said that Russian warplanes assist the Syrian opposition forces in an offensive on the de facto Daesh capital of Raqqa.
“With the support of the Russian aviation group, the Syrian Democratic Forces’ units… are conducting an offensive on the Daesh capital, the city of Raqqa.”
The Syrian Democratic Forces are an alliance between Kurdish, Arab, Assyrian and other militias that was founded in October 2015.
Moreover, Russian aviation has conducted 17 airstrikes to assist Syrian opposition forces fighting near the ancient city of Palmyra, the Russian general said.
The BRICS strategy is so simple, Washington is brimming with envy:
China, Iran and India will buy Russian highly advanced weapons to keep the Russian economy going while the latter battles Khazarian Terror everywhere.
All of these countries are warning the West about their willingness to go head to head.
“On Tuesday, Iranian Army Ground Forces Commander Ahmad Reza Pourdastan told Iranian media that Tehran’s military cooperation with Moscow is going ahead smoothly, and that in addition to the recently renewed contract to deliver the S-300 anti-aircraft missile system, the purchase of the T-90 main battle tank is on the agenda.
“Our military cooperation with Moscow has been strengthened; we have signed the first contract for the purchase of the S-300,” the general noted, according to the Tasnim News Agency. “Relatedly, the purchase of the T-90 tank is on the agenda. We are hoping that the relevant contracts will be concluded, and that our experts will be able to travel to Russia to gain experience in the operation of this modern piece of machinery.”
“China became the first buyer of these cutting-edge war machines. According to the contract, the jets are equipped with Chinese-made avionics, but will not be manufactured in China.
Russian and China have been building up their military cooperation. Before the Su-35 contract, Russia delivered to China Su-27 fighters, S-400 and S-300 air defenses, Buk anti-aircraft missiles, and Lada-class diesel-powered submarines.”
China’s abandonment of Saudi oil is the clearest sign that the BRICS are standing up to the hard core jihadist financiers in the Gulf.
