Russo-Syrian alliance inflicts “biggest defeat of ISIS in 3 years”

This comes months after Barack Obama’s Secretary of Defense said that Russia has done “nothing” do fight ISIS.

With the assistance of the Russian Aerospace force, the Syrian Arab Army has broken the three year long ISIS siege of the Syrian city of Deir ez-Zor as food, medicine and aid now flow in to the region.

Since then, Russia has confirmed the death of the self-proclaimed ISIS emir/leader of Deir ez-Zor along with 40 ISIS leaders who all perished when Russian Aerospace Forces destroyed their underground layer on the outskirts of Deir ez-Zor city.

Today, news came in that the Syrian Arab Army is now in control of Deir ez-Zor’s military airport which ISIS has occupied for three years.

The rapid advance of the Syrian Arab Army in what was the last major ISIS stronghold in Syria means that the conflict in Syria is closer than ever before to being declared over and won by the Syrian Arab Republic.

The Russian Defence Ministry released a statement on today’s new victories which underscores the monumental nature of the defeat of the most feared terrorist organisation in modern history,

“Syrian government troops, with the support of the Russian Air Force, achieved a serious success, inflicting a devastating defeat on Daesh units in the area of the city of Deir ez Zor, which exceeding in scale all previous victories over the past three years.

Currently, the government troops under the command of Gen. Suheil Hassan together with the units, which had been under the siege at the Syrian military airbase, are widening the corridor between the airfield and Deir ez-Zor, carrying out successful military actions on flanks”.

It is becoming increasingly clear that whereas three years ago, it seemed as though Syria might fall to terrorists as Iraq partly did previously, that instead, Syria is a country that has successfully resisted would-be regime change at the hands of US backed terrorists.

To this end, while the US supports many terrorist factions in Syria, it has consistently denied supporting ISIS. However, recent reports of US Air Force helicopters evacuating ISIS fighters from Deir ez-Zor have made many question this narrative.

Retired US Air Force Lieutenant Karen Kwiatkowski has described the situation in the following way,

“Certainly, we are rescuing our allies. But to some extent, we are preserving people who have worked with us, people that are dealing with the financial aspects of our aid to Daesh, because that’s what’s going to be looked at in the autopsy of this operation. People are going to be saying: where did the money flow? Who knew about it? What was the American role? Americans will be asking that question too, not just the world”.

The picture this paints is that the CIA is still covertly aiding terrorists, including ISIS at the same time as Syria and Russia cooperate in inflicting seismic defeats on the group.

This reality was insultingly denied by Barack Obama’s Secretary of Defence, Ash Carter, who earlier this year said that Russia is “doing nothing” to fight ISIS.

This patent lie could not be further from the truth. The reality is that Syria and Russia are together scoring victories which aim to remove ISIS from the face of the earth, something which ought to be celebrated as a great victory for civilisation over barbarism.

President Assad is scoring a tremendous victory which will reverbate throughout the Arab world. He has resisted against a formidable coalition and I am certain that the Arab population (not their leaders) of the entire Middle East will consider him as a hero, a legend of the same aura as Nasser. Russia is scoring points too as an ally you can count on. Vladimir Putin has shown the world the US cannot engage in regime change without impunity. Assad and Putin: a formidable pair you don’t see the likes in a century.

The War OF Terror is just the tool being used this time. In decades gone by it was more blatant… False Flags etc. Nowadays with ‘instant communications’ across the planet sometimes an activist in one country can find out what is happening before the U.$. Military finds out if what they did worked.

Call it for what it is. Don’t get distracted. It’s the U.$. War OF Terror. Nothing else. Call it: the War OF Terror.

How about the world focuses on bringing down the global financial system, regardless of who controls it? It is the system that is evil and controls everything and there are a few dynasties that are responsible. It’s an idea I heard. Maybe Russia and China will do it?

No inanimate object, or “system” is innately evil. It is not a system which controls everything; it is the people who devised that system, and who devised it with the express intention of doing harm. We have a group of people, with a shared history, who wish to do harm to the world outside their own particular clan. They have never made any secret of this fact; for 3500 years they have nursed a hatred for others, considering them sub-human; and because of that, unprotected by the divine laws beneath which they consider themselves to operate.

They wan to know what went ‘wrong’ so they can avoid it next time. There is no more proof required. This statement is conclusive. Get the international lawyers.

Kurds will soon be offered a choice: recognize Syrian sovereignty or war. There is no way that Syria, Russia, Iran or Hezbollah are going to let a client state of the US and Israel partition Syria. Russia is already on record as supporting the full sovereignty of the Syrian state. THe Kurds are no match; they will have to fold, and with them the neocon wet dream and Pinyon plan will be no more. I predict a collapse of the Kurds within two years, probably less.

The comment that “We have to destroy the city, in order to save it” was never official U.S. policy in Nam. It was the unguarded, ill-advised, spontaneous comment of a single Army major respecting a single city, if it was even a city.

Daisy Adler
Guest

Maybe not official, but factual.
And first thing first. The US has NO right to bomb ANYTHING on Syria territory. All US strikes are illegal, and constitute war crimes. US has neither an international resolution to do it, and it never declared war to Syria, nor was invited to participate in Syrian war against foreign terrorists.

Ace

Factual indeed. Or, at least, it was reported by a reporter who was in Nam. Forgive me if I entertain a smidgen of skepticism about anything reported by the press in those times. Even if accurately reported, was the major’s statement in any way typical or representative? Was it indicative of official Army policy? Not at all. It was just one man’s casual statement. No more evidence of mindless Army intentions to destroy civilian areas than anything Jimmy Stewart or Audie Murphy said about American strategy or tactics after D-Day. I knew not one troop in Nam who was careless… Read more »

Russia’s economy continues to outperform as gold takes center stage (Video)

The Duran Quick Take: Episode 118.

Alex Christoforou

Published

on

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris examine how US and EU sanctions have continued to provide a huge boost to Russia’s economy. Russia’s food sovereignty has practically been achieved, as the Russian central bank continues to buy gold and lower its exposure to western financial markets.

Via TASS…

Outside pressure in the form of sanctions has become an incentive to resolve various issues of Russia’s economy, Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev stated in an interview with the Izvestiya daily.

He noted that through introducing sanctions against Russia, “the West aims to destabilize Russia’s economy and to create social and political tensions in society.”

“But during the difficult times, Russians have always stuck together and mobilized their resources in order to ensure the country’s sovereignty. This is what is happening now – the outside pressure has become an incentive to resolve many problems in Russia’s economy,” he said.

“Before the sanctions, it seemed that we would never be able to feed ourselves and that we are doomed to be dependent on Western import. However, right now, Russia’s food sovereignty in crucial sectors has practically been achieved, and in some areas, Russia has become the leading exporter,” Patrushev noted.

Those who apply the sanctions “can see that they (the sanctions – TASS) are ineffective and often achieve the opposite goal,” the Russian security chief concluded.

US Neocon Foreign Policy and the War Waged Against Serbia

The Serbian assault began first by a ‘financial war’; by sanctions and finished off by an aggressive unprovoked incessant NATO bombing campaign.

Richard Galustian

Published

on

The ‘witch-hunt’ against President Trump over Russian collusion has officially ended, following the submission of the Mueller Report, enabling us to now focus on the real problems of America that effects the whole world.

In the hope of a waining of the Russophobia in America, let’s look at the US’s recent war history by starting with the 20th anniversary this month of the NATO war on Serbia in 1999 which amounted to almost 100 days of bombing of historic cities and infrastructure.

Firstly, these problems are, in the main caused by the Neocons, or Deep State, whatever you wish to call them, and the continuing promotion, by the US Military-Security Industrial Complex, of wars and regime change and secondly, Trump’s unreserved support for Israel, regardless of war crimes they may continue to commit against the Palestinians.

Incredibly after that one sided unjust and illegal war that NATO executed, NATO has the audacity to invite Serbia to join it! Something that will never happen. What do they smoke in DC, in the Pentagon and Brussels based NATO?

To compound these overall problems, the US Military and Israeli Defence Forces collaborate on these US regime change policies on all continents evidenced most recently by the arrival of crack Israeli troops last month in Brazil, prepared to support an attack potentially by Brazil and Columbia on Venezuela.

As, has now come to be expected, America pursues its Venezuelan regime change with full main stream media (MSM) cooperation, using well proven sophisticated propaganda techniques along with a variety of pretexts.

From Serbia to Iraq to Libya, where does it end? Observe that Trump is now seeking a ‘NATO alliance’ offering NATO status, to President Bolsonaro of Brazil to back the invasion of Venezuela.

So it is important to remember, as an example, that after a long war of economic and financial destabilization ended with the bombing of Serbia.

Serbia was previously a part of Yugoslavia, a country which had successfully evolved after 1945 to solve the old rivalries of the 19th and early 20th Century Balkan ethnic animosities which was, prior to the advent of power of President Tito, its past history.

The United Nations, instead of supporting, in effect, so called ‘humanitarian wars’ and ‘regime change wars’ by the US, using NATO, helped and relentlessly driven home by MSM outlets like CNN and FOX NEWS into people’s heads, must finally take a stand.

So too, Yugoslavia, once the envy of many in the world, given its then ‘non-aligned’ status under President Tito, was destroyed and broken up; ‘Balkanized’ in the early 1990s.

The Serbian assault began first by a ‘financial war’; by sanctions and finished off by an aggressive unprovoked incessant NATO bombing campaign. That’s what we can expect in Venezuela next.

This ‘Balkanization’ strategy similarly applies to Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria et al. It serves US Neocon interests to dismember States in the world and create smaller more ‘manageable’ countries.

‘Regime change’ runs against the intent, the very words contained in the US Constitution. No one in MSM ever reminds us of that fact. Nevertheless America’s ambition to overthrow other States continues, which they arrogantly now make no secret of. The next States will probably be Nicaragua then Iran to name but two.

A very noteworthy most recent outrageous unilateral declaration was made by President Trump, not yet formally agreed by US institutions, ‘giving’ something he has no authority to give; Syrian territory, the Golan Heights to be precise, to Israel. Something that one day could trigger a full scale Arab-Israeli War.

This is of extreme importance yet no real outcry comes from world leaders; well not so far.

The main reason for that decision given by senior US Administration figures is that “God anointed Trump to save the Jews”.

Not forgetting Trump’s need (which we the people don’t understand exactly why) to support Prime Minister Netanyahu in his difficult upcoming elections in Israel – in part because both countries failed to ‘regime change’ Syria – but more importantly to help the ‘financial terrorists’ who formed a company jointly that has already started drilling for oil in the Golan Heights. You might like to know who owns such oil drilling company which should answer a plethora of questions in one go that you must be asking yourselves.

The shareholder’s names tells us everything; Dick Cheney; Baron Rothschild and Rupert Murdoch. The titular heads of neocons, bankers and media on the planet.

In ending there is no more evidence required for us, the people of the world, to rise up against the globalist dark forces wherever they exist, be it in Brussels, London, France or Washington. We must demand democratic elections or start revolutions, the latter has already begun in France in the form of ‘the yellow vests’. And Brexit, by definition, is a rejection by the British people of globalism and American Hegemony.

The pattern of US destabilization and destruction of States to loot them of their sovereign resources is the unseen history of the last 100 years, not taught in any university, anywhere in the West.

As far as Ukraine is concerned, its government was taken down by the CIA and replaced by an ultra fascist regime that has full backing from America. This is no secret. But the MSM simple don’t report it.

US led NATO is ‘the transnational war machine’ of the world, devouring almost all free countries wealth. It can extort to terrorize all into conformity to the global ‘carcinogenic’ US Neocon imperialistic strategy.

A total estimated 20m people around the world have died since the end of WW11 at the hands of US Forces. Think about that for a moment.

One of the most famous sayings attributed to America’s great President Abraham Lincoln is about deception: “You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.”

‘Dark day for internet freedom’: EU approves controversial copyright reform

Julia Reda, a German MEP with the Pirate Party, described it as a “dark day for internet freedom.”

RT

Published

on

By

Via RT


The European Parliament has voted to adopt the highly controversial Article 13 provision which would govern the production and distribution of content online under the auspices of increasing copyright protections.

Tuesday’s move will update the EU’s 20-year-old copyright rules and will govern everything from audiovisual content to memes, much to the dismay of many social media users who have already begun outpouring their grief online.

MEPs passed the legislation by 348 votes to 274 Tuesday. Opponents had hoped for last-minute amendments to be made but their efforts were in vain.

Julia Reda, a German MEP with the Pirate Party, described it as a “dark day for internet freedom.”

Article 13 or ‘The Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market’ makes all platforms legally responsible for the content hosted and shared on their platforms.

The process of updating the bloc’s copyright laws began in the European Commission two years ago, ostensibly to protect Europe’s publishers, broadcasters and artists and guarantee fair compensation from big tech companies.

By essentially forcing companies like Google, Facebook and Twitter to pay artists and publishers for the reproduction of their work online, include in meme format, the EU is effectively clamping down on online memery.

The onus will now be on tech companies to clamp down on content-sharing on their platforms, which will likely ensure yet more draconian policing of speech and content.

EU member states now have two years to pass their own laws putting Article 13 into effect.

Tens of thousands marched in protest across Germany ahead of the vote, decrying what they viewed as severe online censorship.

Tech giant Google said that while the directive is “improved” it will still lead to legal uncertainty and will damage Europe’s creative and digital economies.

Critics have argued that the only way for Article 13 to be effectively enforced would be through the use of upload filters which automatically check content to see if it’s copyrighted or not, at least in theory. However, the exact mechanics of such a system have yet to be fully debated and the potential for abuse is immediately clear.
