Is the U.S. About to Invade Syria … and Pick a Fight with China and Russia?

Is the U.S. Gearing Up for a Syrian War?

CBS reports:

“The U.S. Embassy in Damascus urged its citizens in Syria to depart “immediately,” and Turkey’s foreign ministry urged Turkish pilgrims to opt for flights to return home from Saudi Arabia to avoid traveling through Syria.”

Military analyst Statfor reports (as summarized by Zero Hedge):

For the first time in many months, [the aircraft carrier] CVN 77 George H.W. Bush has left its traditional theater of operations just off the Straits of Hormuz, a critical choke point, where it traditionally accompanies the Stennis, and has parked… right next to Syria.


Zero Hedge noted yesterday that a No-Fly zone over Syria – the first concrete step towards war these days – may be imminent.

The American People Don’t War War … But a Syrian War Was Planned 10 Years Ago

I noted in August:

While the U.S. is doing its best to try to whip up support for a war against Syria (a war planned at least 10 years ago), a new Rasmussen poll finds:

Just 12% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the United States should get more directly involved in the Syrian crisis, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Sixty-six percent (66%) think the United States should leave the Syrian situation alone.

Are We Picking a Fight with China and Russia?

This is even more dangerous because China has warned the U.S. against attacking Syria, and Russia has reportedly moved warships into Syrian waters to defend Syria from a U.S. attack.

Relations between the U.S. and Russia have degraded recently. See this and this. This is largely due to the U.S. threatening war against any nation which becomes an economic rival.

May cooler heads prevail.

    The only plausible way by which Barry & Associates (including the Zionist warmongers) could justify a war against the Islamic Republic of Iran is by staging another false flag attack on continental United States: most likely a controlled nuclear explosion (dirty bomb) targeting a major urban concentration that may kill dozens of thousands of civilians.

    This operation will be carried out by the CIA in partnership with Mossad and MI6 to subsequently be blamed on AlQaeda working in conjunction with elements of Iran’s IRGC and Pakistan’s ISI.

    Besides that, Americans are a bunch of stupid animals easy to manipulate and subdue. The psychological impact of this event will elicit the brute and ignorant populace to demand a massive retaliation against the alleged perpetrators (explicitly Iran); the Obama administration will need the unconditional support of these mules in order to further their agenda.

    Absent of this essential prerequisite (a false flag operation), President Soetoro will find virtually impossible persuading US Congress to issue a formal declaration of war.

    • Sam – gotta agree with a lot of what you say here….I myself am acquainted with some of the ‘stupid animals’ as you say here, as we all see what is voted into public office here in the U.S. The carnage goes on against the American/European people without most even knowing who it is doing it to them. However, to limit your ‘stupid animals’ comment to only Americans shows you need to acquainted yourself with the European populace….believe it or not, many more on this side of the ‘pond’ are aware of the ilk that has filled our bureaucracy and of the ‘ill winds’ blowing here than those who populate the continent on the other side of the ‘pond’…..

    • Billy Johnson

      I am not a stupid animal but i do agree with you to a certain extent. Promise the American people what you think they want, aka Obama, and they would vote in an ugly, slobbering, braying jackass as long as they are promised the “moon”

  • I just read it on zero hedge…

    War and more wars…US remove troops from one place and send them to other…anywhere but home…shame…oil…all about oil.

    • Richard Francis

      All about oil? Yes it is. And rightfully so. How do you power your home? Heat your home? Drive your car? Power your office? Power the trucks, trains and planes that transport your Ipod, your Iphone your Mac??
      OIL…you don’t like it???? Stop using it and all of its derivatives. But you won’t, you’ll just continue to babble.

      • colton

        Not OIL you RETARD…Coal and nuclear energy

    China and Russia won’t lift a finger. They never do. They might yell a bit, for public consumption at home.

    • vlad

      You obviously dont know Russians.

      • amy

        Putin will lift whatever finger he feels necessary to lift. Americans really don’t keep up with what is truly going on in that hemisphere. Russia is no longer a “Union” and has plenty capabilities to do whatever Russia wants considering their alliances.

  • Benjamin Franklin

    Happy Thanksgiving to all, and especially to you, George. I am grateful for all you do.

    I ‘grok’ Washington’s blog….

  • gamma ray

    Yesterday Prison Planet featured an article about Russia “drawing a line in the sand” regarding a NATO/U.S. attack on Syria. The article reported that Russia was supplying Syria with an advanced missile system and had sent six warships to counter the presence of the U.S. warship.

    In a separate development, there appears to a power struggle in Turkey amongst nationalist Turks and globalist Turks (if Wayne Madsen’s recent article and theory is correct, this second group represents the “Donmeh” Turks). Recent moves by the nationalist Turks to pull away from the global elite may have led to retaliation in the form of chemtrails that ruined many crops in Turkey (Natural News and Prison Planet reported this week on the bizarre chemtrails in Turkey).

  • gamma ray

    Regarding Russia’s support for Syria, sorry for the redundancy, I somehow missed the last paragraph “Are we picking a fight with China and Russia?”

    As far as I can tell, the information about Turkey’s internal struggle hasn’t received much coverage.

    BTW, a hearty thanks to the Washington Blog writers for their courageous and clear headed reporting.

    China and Russia will wait until america is bankrupt with all their little wars-overwhelmed and over extended-then they will nuke Yellowstone and the US is finished-they are just waiting and biding their time-then the world is theirs-and they have both belonged to Satan-since the Bolshevik jews took over.

    • Paul

      Hey there Miss Chen. Before you post ignorance, could you please work on sentence structure? Thanks 🙂

  • Shamma

    Its not about oil. Its about UN global GOV. and the UN Controls china and Russia… its staged. and its a play.. the same Grlobalists run all the countries from trhe shaddows.. to set all up. for a global ww3 and depopulation. The UN Controls the US. and is driving on a staged Suicide mission

  • Frank Fredenburg

    Hi Jennifer Chen. I haven’t seen you around lately. I hope you are well.

  • We need Ron Paul. If we must go to war put Michael Savage, Neal Boortz, Sean Hannity, and Rush Limbaugh on the front line with the Marines for a while. I’m sure when they got to come home to their mansions they would change their policy about war. Sadly when we allow the American Presidents to have dictorial powers it always will lead to evil. That’s why the power must return to the people- Congress.
