From Ronald Thomas West To Germany’s Parliamentarians

This message from retired intelligence professional Ronald Thomas West is posted here by Eric Zuesse:

Up-to-date intelligence from ‘Tyler Durden’ (pseudonym) at Zero Hedge, a consistent source of accurate intelligence, is pasted in, below.

Relevant to this very good assessment, another, 2012 Defense Intelligence Agency assessment, should be recalled; bluntly stating the “western powers” strategy had been the support of al-Qaida and rise of ‘a Caliphate” (predicting Islamic State.) @

This raises a long overdue question: when have western oil companies’ fusion with the “western powers” intelligence agencies created policy that is actually an anti-democratic criminal enterprise? 

USA, UK & Germany complicity @

CIA’s David Petraeus complicity (laundered via Saudi Arabia) @

That is now at:

All preceding examples stem from initial strategy to overthrow Assad in 2102, resulting in Europe awash in refugees from the crimes of those attempting to geopolitically engineer Assad’s overthrow, crimes dwarfing the crimes of Assad. 

Now, David Petraeus is lobbying (would appear includes current German Minister of Defense whom he’d been in attendance with at Bilderberg) to legitimize Al-Nusra (al-Qaida) as a “western powers” strategic asset @

All of the preceding, taken together with the new intelligence assessment (below) point to escalation of criminal geopolitical engineering undermining stability throughout our world. Which democratic principles authorize this? Any of this?

“The history of the great events of this world are scarcely more than a history of crime” -Voltaire


Two days ago we reported something which we had anticipated for a long time but nonetheless did not expect to take shape so swiftly: namely, that with Assad’s regime close to collapse and fighting a war on three different fronts (one of which is directly supported by US air and “advisor” forces), Russia’s leader Vladimir Putin would have no choice but to finally intervene in the most anticipated showdown in recent history as “Russian fighter pilots are expected to begin arriving in Syria in the coming days, and will fly their Russian air force fighter jets and attack helicopters against ISIS and rebel-aligned targets within the failing state.”

This was indirectly confirmed the very next day when an al-Nusra linked Twitter account posted pictures of a Russian drone and a Su-34 fighter jet – the kind which is not flown by the Syrian air force – flying over the Nusra-controlled western idlib province.

Another twitter account was said to have captured Russian soldiers in Zabadani “while fighting for Assad”

Also, one day after our report, the Telegraph reported that “the video footage claimed to show troops and a Russian armoured vehicle fighting Syrian rebels alongside President Bashar al-Assad’s troops in Latakia. It is reportedly possible to hear Russian being spoken by the troops in the footage.”

It added that “a Russian naval vessel was photographed heading south through the Bosphorus strait carrying large amounts of military equipment, according to social media and a shipping blog” while “an unnamed activist with the Syrian rebel group the Free Syrian Army told The Times: “The Russians have been there a long time.

“There are more Russian officials who came to Slunfeh in recent weeks. We don’t know how many but I can assure you there has been Russian reinforcement.”

Then earlier today we got the closest thing to a confirmation from the White House itself which confirmed that “it was closely monitoring reports that Russia is carrying out military operations in Syria, warning such actions, if confirmed, would be “destabilising and counter-productive.

Obama spokesman Josh Earnest essentially confirmed Russia was already operating in Syria when he said that “we are aware of reports that Russia may have deployed military personnel and aircraft to Syria, and we are monitoring those reports quite closely.”

“Any military support to the Assad regime for any purpose, whether it’s in the form of military personnel, aircraft supplies, weapons, or funding, is both destabilising and counterproductive.”

And another confirmation: “a US official confirmed that “Russia has asked for clearances for military flights to Syria,” but added “we don’t know what their goals are.”

“Evidence has been inconclusive so far as to what this activity is.”

Other reports have suggested Russia has targeted Islamic State group militants, who have attacked forces loyal to Russian-backed Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad.

Both the White House and the Pentagon refused to say whether they had intelligence suggesting the reports were accurate.

Of course, what is left unsaid is that Russia is there under the humanitarian pretext of fighting the evil ISIS, which is the same pretext that the US, Turkey, and the Saudis are all also there for, whereas in reality everyone is fighting for land rights to the most important gas pipeline in decades, so that the US is limited in its diplomatic recoil.

Indeed, as we sarcastically said last week: “See: the red herring that is ISIS can be used just as effectively for defensive purposes as for offensive ones. And since the US can’t possibly admit the whole situation is one made up farce, it is quite possible that the world will witness its first regional war in which everyone is fighting a dummy, proxy enemy that doesn’t really exist, while in reality everyone is fighting everyone else!”

This now effectively ends the second “foreplay” phase of the Syrian proxy war. The first one took place in the summer of 2013 when in a repeat situation, Russia was supporting Assad only the escalations took place in the naval theater with both Russian and US cruisers within kilometers of each other off the Syrian coast. This means that the violent escalation phase is next. It also means that Assad was within days of losing control fighting a multi-front war with enemies supported by the US, Turkey and Saudi Arabia, and that Putin had no choice but to intervene or else risk losing Gazprom’s influence over Europe to the infamous Qatari gas pipeline which is what this whole 3 years war is all about.

Finally, it means that the European refugee crisis, which is a direct consequence of the ISIS-facilitated destabilization of the Syrian state (as a reminder, ISIS is a US creation meant to depose of the Syrian president as leaked Pentagon documents have definitively revealed) is about to get much worse as 2013’s fabricated “chemical gas” YouTube clip will be this year’s “Refugee crisis.” It will be, and already has been, blamed on Syria’s president Assad in order to drum up media support for what is now an inevitable western intervention in Syria.

The problem, however, has emerged: Russia is already on the ground, and will hardly bend over to any invading force.

    So I guess this is confirmed, the Russian increase in hardware and personnel? Also I was to understand only migs were sent, so if they sent ground support aircraft that’s really huge. Now, my hope in all this is that Jahbat al Nato will blink first and this will bring everyone to the table for a negotiated settlement, an end to this war, and therefore an easing of the refugee crisis- which is just one aspect of the larger issue. Human suffering in the region in general. The response of the west, that Russia is causing instability by these actions… Do I have to elaborate?

      Not even close to being confirmed.

      So far, no new information has come out beyond unidentified sources and American officials making unsourced statements about intel they may not actually have.

      On the ground, there appear to be no significant numbers of Russian troops nor are the DAESH experiencing any of the pain Russian combat units can inflict.

      In terms of military logistics and realpolitick, Russian troops on Syrian ground are impractical save as advisors. Perhaps too many readers are used to seeing war from the U.S. side, what the U.S. can do with its global military presence, to realize what a truly massive and expensive undertaking expeditionary warfare really is.

        Thanks. I had read the Saker article, but getting so much conflicting info from other usually reliable sources I couldn’t be sure. MoA also has a peeve throwing water on this fire. Much appreciated for the heads up.

    Still pushing this? Seems more like NATO pushing for a reason to escalate. Which is bizarre but to their way of thinking it makes sense; selling a Russian threat which they knows doesn’t truly exist that can be played into attacking Russia at some point. The only thing we know for sure, is that the much propagandized cooling of Russian support for Syria was bunk.

    Sergei Larov has been trying for weeks to assemble a genuine anti-terrorism coalition that recognizes the legitimately elected Assad government, and has come away empty handed.

    Russia’s own Western media arm, RT, insists Russia is not doing anything more in Syria than it has been doing. So, if it turns out Russia is entering the war as a combatant, this very valuable media source is discredited. Would Russian strategists want to do this, or is it more likely that Russian military aid to Syria has become an insurmountable obstacle and needs to be scaled back somehow?

    Russian troops in Syria is far less believable than Russian troops in Ukraine; at least all Russians bordering Ukraine have to do is cross the border. Of course, Russia’s links with Syria go back far enough, that many Russians married Syrians and there was an ex-pat population there, likely ex-mil. So a few Russians fighting with the SAA or a pro-government militia would not be unbelievable, but well short of an actual Russian combat military presence.

    Why are so many supposedly reliable and non-biased news sources jumping on a bandwagon created by YNet, an Israeli news outlet? Perhaps because Assad has changed his original ‘army in all corners’ strategy.

    The loss of Palmyra was preceeded by a decapitating strike against the military H.Q. in Idlib province. Assad forces repulsed the first Idlib attack by sheer accident; comms failed and the soldiers held their ground thinking this was just another routine assault, instead of fleeing like they usually do upon a central command failure.

    It became obvious to Assad that his forces were losing a war of attrition, and the Idlib loss of military talent was irreplaceable. After all – these soldiers survived a loss of their high command, and still were able to fight. Clearly, those fallen officers were capable. So, key units were quietly withdrawn to core locations. Palmyra fell because the SAA presence there was apparently hollowed out. Land with historical artifacts are not necessarily life-and-death strategic positions.

    Assad’s new plan is to hold vital strategic areas only, and with concentrated forces, begin seriously clearing out doable rebel enclaves within those strategic areas. Case in point, al-Zabadani on the Lebanese-Syrian border.

    In other words, Bashar Assad has a winning offensive strategy that will make better use of Russian aid, which has not diminished and may be increasing, well short of Russian combat forces. Assad can prolong the fight much longer than the NATO is prepared to keep paying for and the swarms of refugees hitting Europe begs the obvious solution; stop destabilizing Syria.

    A partially-declassified DIA report brings disturbing details about US support for jihadists in Syria. What kind of game is the US government playing in the Middle East?

    The “elite” British SAS special forces are dispatching over 120 troops to Syria to dress up as ISIS fighters and attack Syrian targets. In today’s Thought For The Day, James looks back at a couple of the lowlights of the bumbling SAS forces and examines the 2005 incident where the SAS was caught in Basra dressing up as Arabs and shooting Iraqis in order to fuel ethnic tensions in the country.

      Actually, it could work up to a point.

      Recall that Gaddifi’s Tripoli fell to an amphibious landing of al-Qaida forces spearheaded by Qatari ex-special forces. They arrived by nondescript freighter, probably looking like part of the smuggling then keeping Gadaffi’s Libya alive. They quickly overwhelmed the port and coast security. For weeks prior, Gaddifi’s best units were gradually drawn away and inland by the fighting. A well-timed defection by a key general, then city defenses collapsed to a handful of terrorist fighters, and the rest of the army collapsed thereafter.

      NATO has signaled escalation by falsely accusing Russia of escalating. Syria’s ports are the only strategic targets left untouched and Syria’s only real lifeline to outside aid. How realistic port sabotage is, is not clear, and might simply be a ruse to tie more SAA resources with guard duty. Damascus is Syria’s capital; damage to Tartus or Latakia would not immediately threaten the government.

      Still, a suicide freighter loaded with explosive chemicals, detonating in port, could cripple the facility. A single freighter full of terrorists run amuk in a port city would be if nothing else, a huge propaganda score before they were put down. Repeated coastal raids from offshore would put a strain on the SAA as well.
