Dear Fellow Americans: Do You Have Any Idea What’s Being Done In Your Name In Syria?

Americans have some vague understanding that the U.S. wants Syria’s Assad to go, while Russia wants him to stay.

And Americans know that the U.S. “war against ISIS” hasn’t done much, while the Russians have been pounding Syrian targets with jets.

But Americans have no idea that the U.S. is deploying fighter jets designed solely to engage in plane-to-plane dogfighting … in order to counter the Russians.

And we don’t understand that the U.S. is arming the Syrian “rebels” with should-fired anti-aircraft weapons. As the Wall Street Journal  reports:

The U.S. and its regional allies agreed to increase shipments of weapons and other supplies to help moderate Syrian rebels hold their ground and challenge the intervention of Russia and Iran on behalf of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, U.S. officials and their counterparts in the region said.

The deliveries from the Central Intelligence Agency, Saudi Arabia and other allied spy services deepen the fight between the forces battling in Syria, despite President Barack Obama’s public pledge to not let the conflict become a U.S.-Russia proxy war.

Saudi officials not only pushed for the White House to keep the arms pipeline open, but also warned the administration against backing away from a longstanding demand that Mr. Assad must leave office.

In the past month of intensifying Russian airstrikes, the CIA and its partners have increased the flow of military supplies to rebels in northern Syria, including of U.S.-made TOW antitank missiles, these officials said. Those supplies will continue to increase in coming weeks, replenishing stocks depleted by the regime’s expanded military offensive.

An Obama administration official said the military pressure is needed to push Mr. Assad from power. 

“Assad is not going to feel any pressure to make concessions if there is no viable opposition that has the capacity, through the support of its partners, to put pressure on his regime,” the official said.

In addition to the arms the U.S. has agreed to provide, Saudi and Turkish officials have renewed talks with their American counterparts about allowing limited supplies of shoulder-fire man-portable air-defense systems, or Manpads, to select rebels. Those weapons could help target regime aircraft, in particular those responsible for dropping barrel bombs, and could also help keep Russian air power at bay, the officials said.

Mr. Obama has long rebuffed such proposals, citing the risk to civilian aircraft and fears they could end up in the hands of terrorists. To reduce those dangers, U.S. allies have proposed retrofitting the equipment to add so-called kill switches and specialized software that would prevent the operator from using the weapon outside a designated area, said officials in the region briefed on the option.

U.S. intelligence agencies are concerned that a few older Manpads may already have been smuggled into Syria through supply channels the CIA doesn’t control.

(This comes a week after ISIS may have used a Manpad to shoot down a Russian civilian airliner.)

Americans don’t know that sending Manpads into Syria and trying to establish a no-fly zone is what Al Qaeda leaders have been hoping for, and that ISIS and Al Qaeda will end up with all of the weapons which the U.S. sends to Syria.

Americans don’t know the history of American regime change in Syria:

Americans don’t know that it was the “rebels” – not the Syrian government – who carried out the chemical weapons massacre in Syria.

Americans don’t know that U.S. backed rebels told Christians, “Either you convert to Islam or you will be beheaded.”   Syrian rebels slit the throat of a Christian man who refused to convert to Islam, taunting his fiance by yelling: “Jesus didn’t come to save him!”  A former Syrian Jihadi says the rebels have a “9/11 ideology”.  Indeed, they’re literally singing Bin Laden’s praises and celebrating the 9/11 attack.

Americans don’t know that the U.S. and its allies are largely responsible for creating ISIS, that U.S., Turkey and Israel have all been acting as ISIS’ air force, and that influential American figures are calling for openly arming Al Qaeda … and perhaps even ISIS.

Americans don’t know that Russia and China are catching up to the U.S. military, and that this isn’t a mere proxy war … but is “one step closer” to all out war between the U.S. and Russia.

And Americans don’t know that  history shows that empires collapse when they overextend themselves militarily … and fight one too many wars.

Postscript.  Americans also don’t know how close we’ve come to the worst-case scenario:

  • We came very close to nuclear war with Russia numerous times in the past … and only the courage of a handful of men to disobey the commands of their superiors saved the world
  • In 1962, the head of the U.S. Air Force – General Curtis LeMay – pushed president Kennedy to use the “opportunity” to launch a nuclear war against Russia, and was bitterly disappointed that Kennedy instead opted for peace.  As highly-regarded reporter David Talbot said recently:

The military in this country and the CIA thought that we could take, you know, Castro out. During the Cuban missile crisis, they were prepared to go to a nuclear war to do that. President Kennedy thought people like Curtis LeMay, who was head of the Air Force, General Curtis LeMay, was half-mad. He said, “I don’t even see this man in my—you know, in my sight,” because he was pushing for a nuclear confrontation with the Soviet Union. And even years later, Curtis LeMay, after years after Kennedy is dead, in an interview that I quote from in the book, bitterly complains that Kennedy didn’t take this opportunity to go nuclear over Cuba. So, President Kennedy basically, I think, saved my life—I was 12 years old at the time—saved a lot of our lives, because he did stand his ground. He took a hard line against the national security people and said, “No, we’re going to peacefully resolve the Cuban missile crisis.”

  • One of the world’s leading physicists (Michio Kaku) revealed declassified plans for the U.S. to launch a first-strike nuclear war against Russia in the 1987 book To Win a Nuclear War: The Pentagon’s Secret War Plans.  The forward was written by the former Attorney General of the United States, Ramsey Clarke

    Post 9/11 supporters of GWOT argued that the Constitution is
    not a suicide pact as justification for the government’s unconstitutional

    All Americans should now agree that the Constitution is NOT a suicide pact, and
    if the government plays at being insane so effectively that it is now
    effectively insane, then the American people should not comply with its
    insanity even if the government consists of constitutionally legitimized

    The Constitution is still NOT a suicide pact.

      I agree excecpt the government is not legitimate anymore, hasn’t been for a long while, which means no one should comply with it or anything it says

      The Constitution is a SOCIAL CONTRACT.
      Since said contract has been shredded by TPTB ….. you are no longer bound by it.
      A “global economy” PRESUPPOSES Global WAGES.
      You, your children’s Standard of Living will be equalized to that of Chinese and Indian workers.
      The treasonous Trans Pacific Partnership Treaty will lock it into LAW.
      THANK YOUR POLITICIANS.You/Yours will be working for Bangladeshi wages.
      How did NAFTA workout for you?
      YOUR standard of living is being destroyed by “your” representatives.
      You were told “Communists” were a DEADLY ENEMY because
      they were going to take your JOBS, your HOMES, your WAY of LIFE ……………..
      “Sir the “Free Trade” argument may be reduced to the absurd quite easily. Suppose Mars was inhabited by superior beings. They could build every product we use, every thing we consume for next to nothing. Say a wonderful car for one dollar. A house for five dollars. Of course they would need nothing we could produce. What would be the result of “Free Trade” with these people? “Free Trade” is being brought to you by people who wish to destroy the US. Does this include our “Leadership”. Of course. “

      Speaking of BABYBush and suicide ……
      No one seems to connect the fact that W-rong Bush MURDERED hundreds of First Responders by having that woman from the EPA reassure them that the area was SAFE to work in …… when the government knew DAMN WELL it was NOT.
      Now cancer is causing SLOW AGONIZING DEATH while the Politicians pretend to care but keep snatching away their medical care. It is like BUILDING SEVEN …….there, but invisible.

    I think the moment a russian jet or a commercial airliner is shot above Syria , there will be a no-fly zone,a Russian one.
    Accompanied by an intensified aircampaign against any terrorist…eh…rebel group , ‘moderate’ or not,
    embedded with US troops or not.
    If the US ,after this ,still doesn’t get the message , WW3 will become very probable.

  • mulga mumblebrain

    Throughout the nuclear arms race, at every stage of escalation, it was the USA leading the way. When Kennedy claimed there was a ‘missile gap’ it was the USA that had nearly twenty times as many as the USSR. At present the USA is spending trillions to ‘modernise’ its nukes, and a nuclear first-strike against several countries is unconcealed strategic doctrine. With ‘missile defence’ an integral part of an first-strike doctrine being rolled out, WW3 is almost certainly inevitable. The hereditary psychopaths who rule the USA believe that God Himself decreed that they should reign over the Earth in ‘Full Spectrum Dominance’ forever, and they intend ensuring that remains so.

    In who’s name? I didn’t vote in the last many elections because…my conscience won’t let me vote for the lessor of two evils, that’s still a vote for evil. Instead, I’ve been asking people to do paper trail elections of vetted oath keepers. …right? ‘at ‘ll fix it. The facts reveal the talmuds illegally occupying all of Palestine are trying to provoke revenge wars with the Arab world to crush them and steal their land to fabricate “greater Israel”. …1. Who gave Great Britain the right to give the talmud converts Palestine when they have no blood association with Palestine? 2. The argument is based on a dream/delusion and vision/hallucination a man had thousands of years ago, an argument that won’t hold up in a legitimate court of law. 3. Nevertheless, the genocide and theft of land being perpetrated upon Palestine is a Hitlerian like war crime making the talmuds hypocrites and liars and thieves and self-aggrandizing genocidal maniacs. 4. We and our families and friends are not doing false flag war, have fun with that, send us a post-card, if you don’t make it back, what do you want on your tombstone?
