Syria: “Not a Proxy War. It’s One Step Closer”

Russia started bombing jihadi bases in Syria today.

Given that the the U.S. and its allies are largely responsible for creating ISIS, and that U.S., Turkey and Israel have all been acting as ISIS’ air force – they are not taking too kindly to Russia’s actions.

This Wall Street Journal headline sums up the absurdity of the situation:  “Russian Airstrike in Syria Targeted CIA-Backed Rebels, U.S. Officials Say.”

We noted years ago that a proxy war is raging in Syria … but things are getting even more over-heated.

Political risk expert Ian Bremmer sums up the situation:

Russian forces will be striking Assad enemies, some of whom are directly supported by the US and its allies. That’s not a proxy war. It’s one step closer.

What could possibly go wrong?

    Let’s just call Syria for what it is – a cluster fuck. But this is even worse than the one in Iraq because the fighting is right on Israel’s border, the Arabian OPEC countries are fomenting this war along with the west, and there’s an epic migration crisis spilling over into Europe combined with the ongoing migration crises in Iraq and Libya. It’s the same old tired narrative replete with falsified intel and the requisite false flag op with chemical WMD. We’re barely 12 years away from the exact, same storyline in Iraq. No one likes an overpriced rerun of a bad movie with bad actors. Humanity simply can’t afford these manufactured crises anymore.

      I’d prefer: Let’s just call Syria (and the rest of the middle east) for what it is – an American neocon inspired & caused cluster fuck.

        That works for me too. 🙂

      • The ME was always a CF. What the British did – and the Americans have doubled down – is to amplify everything.

        America did not invent the Shia/Sunni War. America has amplified it.

  • Aug 7, 2015 US Intelligence Confirms US Support for ISIS

    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?

    OK, So we’ve been saying that these are “rebels” and hiding the fact that the US Government has been supporting them, including ISIS, and really doesn’t want them to be eliminated.

    Putin says, “OK, you want to eliminate ISIS? I’ll eliminate ISIS. I took care of that chemical weapons problem, this one is easy” Oblamo: “WOAH, WOAH, WOAH,,,, Hold on there Vlad, we didn’t mean we really wanted to eliminate ISIS, we just wanted to tell the American Taxpayers that they were bad folks and needed to be eliminated. We spent a lot of money on those fake beheading videos to get them all scared about ISIS, but the really bad dude is Assad.”

    Putin again pulls the curtain away from the lies – amazingly the Russians are the ones who are telling the truth and the US Government is full of lies. At what point are we going to get honesty about what’s really going on? Why really would Syria be important to the citizens of the United States, and what right do we have spending one minute there?

    Title should be “Lying Nobel Peace Prize winner gets back-doored by honest Commie KGB man….
