Dangerous Escalation in the Middle East

flag

To make sense of what is going on in the Middle Eastern region one needs to realize that there is an overall comprehensive colonial project for the whole area.

This project is the almost three thousand years old colonial dream of ancient Jewish elites to establish a Greater Israel in the heart of the old world; in Palestine, to become a destination for all the goyim rulers to kiss the shoes of and to blindly serve the “Chosen People”.

Throughout history this Jewish elite had infiltrated empires starting with the Roman Empire all the way to present US, bribed their politicians, controlled their money through usury banking and high taxations, and led them to expensive devastated wars including WWI, WWII, and all the recent wars in the Middle East; Palestine, Egypt, Libya, Lebanon, Iraq, Yemen and Syria with Iran in the future.

Syria proved to be a special case. Despite the documented facts that Israel, US, UK, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar had created and armed many terrorist groups and shoved them into Syria to destroy this country, Syria, with the help of Russia, Iran and Hezbollah, was able to defeat all these terrorist groups in a war that had lasted more than seven years. Nowadays Syria is expelling the remnants of the terrorist groups out of the country. The plan to destroy and to divide Syria is failing.

The Jewish controlled western countries, under the leadership of the US, are trying to use the chemical weapons card, as they did in 2003 against Iraq, to convince the UN to form a western coalition to attack Syria. Their first attempt in 2013 doomed to failure since there was no tangible evidence that Syria had used such weapons.

Syria had surrendered its stockpiles of chemical weapons in 2014 to a joint mission led by the US and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), which oversaw the destruction of this weaponry, unlike US, UK, France and Israel, who still have their chemical weapons and manufacturing labs.

Still these countries keep on trying to accuse Syrian government of chemical weapons attacks against its own people. To substantiate their accusations, they had shipped their own chemical weapons material and equipment to the terrorist groups and instructed them to use these weapons against civilians to implicate Syrian government. The Syrian forces discovered chemical weapons labs belonging to the terrorist groups in East Ghouta. These labs contained chemical weapons and materials and equipment produced in the US, UK, and Germany.

Last Sunday April 8th American president Donald Trump accused Syrian president Bashar al-Assad of launching a chemical attack on civilians; mostly women and children, in Douma near the capital Damascus, saying there will be a “big price to pay” Trump was responding to a “White Helmet” video showing children being treated due to alleged chemical weapon attack. One could easily tell that it was a fake video due to the fact that the children were treated only by water, and the treating team were handling the alleged victims without wearing any gear to protect them from chemicals. It is also absurd that these chemical weapons inflict only children and no adults. Besides, one would wonder why al-Assad would use chemical weapons when he defeated the terrorists, who entered into agreement to surrender their prisoners for allowing them to evacuate the area peacefully.

Russian inspectors did not find any trace of the alleged chemical weapons, and Syria agreed to open the area to international inspectors for further investigation. Similar to all videos produced by the White Helmet group this video was fake shot in the small town of Saqba in Eastern Ghouta under the control of the terrorist groups with well-trained child actors. This video shows how it is done.

Trump had also blamed Russian president Putin and Iran for allowing Syria to use chemical weapons. “President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible for backing animal Assad. Big price to pay” he tweeted. Following world news, one notices here that there has been a smear campaign to demonize Russia, particularly Putin, implicating him with the use of chemical weapons in the assassination attempt against the Russian defector Sergey Skripal in London. The fact is that Skripal was smuggling British chemical weapons manufactured by Porton Down in Salisbury, UK, to Ukraine, and from there through Turkey to terrorist groups in East Ghouta.

Last week Russia and Syrian Arab Army (SAA) had announced the capture of British chemical weapon stockpiles in East Ghouta in a fortified operation room along with the capture of coalition command and chemical weapons facility with all personnel including British, American, Israeli and Saudi intelligence officers. Such capture could be used as evidence to expose the real perpetrators of chemical weapons attacks.

Dsespite the documented facts that Israel, US, UK, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar had created and armed many terrorist groups and shoved them into Syria to destroy this country, Syria, with the help of Russia, Iran and Hezbollah, was able to defeat all these terrorist groups in a war that had lasted more than seven years.
An American/Israeli and possibly French, joint air attack on Syrian T-4 airbase could have been an attempt to destroy such evidence. Later both US and interestingly France denied involvement in the attack, while Israel implied its responsibility. On the ground Lebanese resources claimed that eight fighter planes conducted the attack while in Lebanese air space; a route Israeli fighter planes take whenever bombing Syria.

Initially reports indicated that between 15 – 20 missiles were fired at the base in an attempt to overload the Russian/Syrian defense system. Eight missiles were intercepted by Syrian defenses. Later Russia reported that only two Israeli fighters conducted the attack firing only eight missiles, five of which were intercepted. These conflicting reports may indicate an attempt to downplay the attack in an attempt to avoid escalation.

Urgent UN meetings failed to produce any results. The US failed to convince the UN to form a coalition to punish Syria for its alleged chemical attack, and Russia failed to get the UN to send international experts to investigate the alleged chemical attack. The US warned it will act (illegally) outside of the UN to form its own allies to punish Syria. It seems the US wants to go ahead with its plans to attack Syria under the pretense of the unproven alleged chemical attack similar to what they had done to Iraq in 2003.

Russia hastened to send more sophisticated weaponry, fighter planes, radars and missile systems to protect Syria. Russian and Syrian fighter planes are now conducting nonstop flights along Syria’s Mediterranean coast very close to Israeli air space. Russia warned Israel, UK, France and US that its forces will shoot down striking missiles and destroy their launch pads.

Childishly and dangerously Trump tweeted his decision to hit Syria with missiles challenging Russia “to get ready” because American missiles “…will be coming, nice and new and smart”.

Latest news confirms that Trump had deployed multiple Arleigh-Burke-class guided missile destroyers to the Mediterranean. They are the USS Donald Cook, the USS Carney, the USS Porter and the USS Laboon. Trump needs to remember, though, that in 2014 the Russian war planes were able to completely disable the USS Donald Cook using some new electronic weaponry, and it had to be towed away from the Crimean coast. There is a possibility that the other destroyers might face the same fate.

 Trump also deployed two nuclear submarines; the USS Georgia and USS John Warner. These two submarines, with the other destroyers have a total of 406 Tomahawk cruise missiles. The USS Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group; seven guided-missile destroyers, will follow to the Mediterranean. The US also has other warships already deployed in the Red Sea and in the Persian Gulf, plus the American military bases in Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar and United Arab Emirate (UAE). All those make a lot of American military presence in the region.

All this power indicates that this time Trump is determined to hit Syria harder than his April 2017 attack when the US launched only 59 Tomahawk missiles on the Syrian Shayrat air base. Yet with the Russian warning Trump should expect some retaliation this time. This will open the doors of hell wide on the whole region and not just Syria.

Iran had warned Israel that the killing of seven Iranian advisors in the raid at T-4 base will not go unpunished. Also, any American led coalition attack against Syria/Russia will pose a threat to Iranian security, and Iran would join in the conflict as its right for self-defence. Iranians might hit the American bases in the Gulf if they pose a threat to them.

Although Israeli leaders might like to distance themselves and let the American coalition fight the war for Israel, yet they might find themselves forced to get involved especially when Hezbollah joins the war and starts raining missiles on Israel. Jordan may find itself in the middle of all this since it has American base in its northern border with Syria. Iraq may also join in to defend its southern borders.

Hell will definitely break lose in the whole region unless some sane American military high commanders restrain Trump’s madness.
