Syraq SITREP 60: Putin and Trump Plan Syria Talks at Helsinki Summit, Neocons Claim Kremlin and Iran Plotting Attacks on U.S. Troops

Syraq SITREP 60: Putin and Trump Plan Syria Talks at Helsinki Summit, Neocons Claim Kremlin and Iran Plotting Attacks on U.S. Troops

The Syrian Arab Army is achieving rapid advances as part of Operation Basalt. Many ‘Free Syrian Army’ militants are surrendering without a fight, and a few have joined in the pro-government forces offensive against the Al-Qaeda linked jihadists. According to CNN, President Trump told King Abdullah during their meeting last week in Washington that he intends to strike a deal with Russian President Vladimir V. Putin to facilitate the withdrawal of American troops from the Al Tanf area bordering Jordan and Iraq. U.S. backed Kurdish fighters recently clashed with pro-government militias near the extensive deconfliction line the Americans enforce around their illegal under international law base. The Russian Defense Ministry has complained the Americans use al-Tanf to harbor and re-train former ISIS terrorists.

Naturally, The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board and reporters are disturbed, while the neocons are enraged that Trump would make any concessions to the Russians. But Trump reportedly intends to demand — in return for a phased American withdrawal — the complete exit of Iranian, Hezbollah and pro-Iranian Shi’a foreign fighters from Syria. Even with the great prestige Russia enjoys among its Syrian allies and frenemies in the Turks alike, it isn’t clear Putin can deliver on this demand. Damascus has hosted at least a few Iranian military advisers since the early 1980s.

Also, the prospect of a false flag operation, either against U.S. troops or a chemical attack on Syrian civilians to be blamed on Assad, is not to be taken lightly. If the globalists cannot stop the Trump-Putin summit now set for July 16 in the Finnish capital Helsinki, the neocons appear hellbent on spoiling or blocking any positive outcomes from it…

‘Stop Genocide: Peace and Development for Yemen!’

‘Stop Genocide: Peace and Development for Yemen!’

The battle for Hodeidah has reached a critical phase this week, as outnumbered Houthi defenders of the city are inflicting heavy losses on Saudi and UAE troops and southern Yemeni mercenaries. Most importantly, the Red Sea port represents a vital lifeline to the world for humanitarian aid to reach Houthi controlled areas including the capital Sanaa, the highway to which has been almost cut off by Saudi/UAE coalition attacks and air strikes. The fighting must stop so vital supplies, food and medicines can reach starving Yemenis.

From the start of the Yemen War in 2015, the LaRouche Movement and International Schiller Institute have advocated for an immediate end to the hostilities followed by a major reconstruction program to integrate the poorest nation in the Arab world and its neighbors into the Maritime and New Silk Roads.

The British and “Christian” Hand in the Gaza Slaughter

The British and “Christian” Hand in the Gaza Slaughter

This week LaRouchePAC.com takes on a topic which for many Bible believing Americans as well as secular Jews who fear the “Christian Right”’s influence is a touchy subject — the role of Christian Zionism in support of destructive Israeli policies. Conditions that have been enabled by decades of ignorance and occasionally, the deliberate indifference of many Evangelical Christians to the fate of the Mideast churches, suffering under the Israeli military occupation of the West Bank (less severe than the prison-like conditions Palestinian Muslims and Christians alike are subject to in Gaza) and far worse, an attempted genocide at the hands of jihadists sponsored by the State of Israel and its Saudi ally’s proxies in Syria. This followed the mass emigration of Iraqi Christians particularly Assyrians due to the violence triggered by the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq and subsequent spawn of ISIS that sought to eradicate Christianity and the Yazidi sect on the Nineveh plain where the Bible says the prophet Jonah preached repentance.

While Democrats beat the drums for hostilities against Russia, even as they hypocritically pose as peacemakers to defend the nuclear deal reached by the Obama Administration with Tehran (but never ratified as a treaty by Congress); President Trump has the Republicans veering toward overt war against Iran. Or at least, a serious confrontation with Iran’s Lebanese Hezbollah and Yemeni Houthi allies. With weak, incredibly indebted economies already showing signs of strain before oil prices create pain at the pump, neither the Democrat nor the Republican position can lead to a positive outcome for Americans. Due to Moscow’s alliance with Tehran in Syria and China’s objection to any aggression against Iranian territory, both parties current foreign policy agendas can lead to great power war if they remain unchecked by the American people…or by U.S. European and Asian allies mustering the will to say not just no, but hell no to Washington’s arm twisting.

Syraq SITREP 49: Douma Chemical Attack Case Falling Apart, Israeli Threats Against Damascus, and U.S. Demanding Turkey Drop S400 Purchase

Syraq SITREP 49: Douma Chemical Attack Case Falling Apart, Israeli Threats Against Damascus, and U.S. Demanding Turkey Drop S400 Purchase

Israel allegedly followed up on last week's barrage of U.S.-British and French cruise missiles fired against the Syrian government. However the Israeli Air Force (IAF) attack on a base near Homs supposedly targeting Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) personnel was said to use non-kinetic electronic warfare. Syrian commanders blamed the Israelis use of jamming from jets flying over Lebanon for making their country's air defense operators shoot off missiles, while being fooled into thinking that they were under attack. Perhaps envious of the Russian 'off switch' that may have taken down a large number of the missiles fired by the Anglo-Americans (at least two intact 'smart' missiles have reportedly been transferred from the Syrians to the Russians according to TASS) on the night of April 13-14, the Israelis may have wanted to demonstrate that they too, can pack an electronic punch.

Israeli evaluations leaked to the press of the President Trump-ordered air strikes were that they represented a 'failure', because only three Syrian sites were destroyed. The American missiles missed the alleged chemical weapons the Assad government allegedly hid or produced since surrendering its CW arsenal to international inspectors in 2013-14. The logical follow up question then, with Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) multinational representatives on the ground in Damascus and headed for the nearby town of Douma to investigate an alleged gas attack, is why Washington and Tel Aviv do not immediately direct inspectors to sites where their intelligence services believe the Syrians are hiding toxic weaponry? As retired Army Col. DIA analyst Pat Lang noted about his time providing intel to UNSCOM, when Saddam Hussein remained in power after Iraq's crushing defeat in the 1991 Gulf War, UN inspectors were directed by American intelligence to chemical and biological weapons production sites, where WMD materials were found and peacefully dismantled. Of course, we don't see such referrals using intel from CIA and Mossad, because the alleged Syrian chemical arsenal is being used as a pretext for American and Israeli strikes on an ally of Russia and above all, Iran. What's clear is that there were no chemical weapons stored or produced at the three sites U.S.-UK missiles flattened (while France had an alleged failure to launch its weaponry). Otherwise the Syrian clean up crews and photojournalists who filmed the rubble would've shown symptoms of exposure. It's also evident that the Americans and British are increasingly nervous that their story about the evil Assad gassing children in Douma which was used to justify the missile strikes is falling apart, despite the legacy media’s propaganda.

W Intelligence Insider RMR 12/14/17

W the Intelligence Insider returns to RMR for a special sitrep on the Middle East situation, in the wake of Trump's declaration of Jerusalem as Israel's eternal capitol.

With Turkey under Erdogan already shifting from NATO into the Eurasian camp and hosting a pan-Islamic conference rejecting the decision, and Washington's position more alienated from nearly all of its allies than ever before, are we headed for another regional war after the devastating Syria and Yemen conflicts? And will the U.S. get more involved in Yemen to bail out the failing counterinsurgency campaign of its weak ally, Saudi Arabia?

Keeping Victory In Our Sights as the British/Deep State Dossier Plot Against Trump Unravels

Keeping Victory In Our Sights as the British/Deep State Dossier Plot Against Trump Unravels

This week has seen extraordinary, linked developments in Washington and in global politics. Russian President Vladimir Putin met with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in Ankara and, stopping at the Kheimmim air base outside Latakia en route to Egypt and his meeting with President Sisi, declared victory alongside Syrian President Bashir al Assad over ISIS terrorists. With North Korea, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson declared his willingness to talk without preconditions in order to avert war over Pyongyang's nuclear and missile tests.

The effort to soft coup President Donald Trump which began while he was still a candidate with the Russiagate hoax and Clintons funded Steele Dossier is falling apart. This is happening despite Special Counsel Robert Mueller's indictments of former campaign chair Paul Manafort and retired DIA chief Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. The mainstream media is now complaining that Republicans are demanding an unreasonable standard of apolitical-ness from the overwhelmingly Democratic campaign contributing prosecutors Mueller has assembled. Whiny stories like this one in The Atlantic avoid the larger issue, of the Steele Dossier itself being a piece of garbage partisan oppo research which the troika of intel chiefs (James Clapper, John Brennan and James Comey) sought to 'legitimate', cynically leaking to the Trump loathing press while briefing the President elect on its salacious contents.

Washington’s Foreign Policies Merely Serve to Highlight Its Weaknesses

Washington’s Foreign Policies Merely Serve to Highlight Its Weaknesses

As during the first Cold War, in recent months Egypt has become a pressure point for geopolitical rivalry between Washington and Moscow. President Sisi's government has sought to maximize the amount of aid it receives from the Americans and Russians against ISIS terrorists presence in the Sinai peninsula and neighboring Libya (where Russia is backing Gen. Haftar against Daesh and other jihadist groups).

In the last few years, Moscow has supported Beijing's Maritime Silk Road investments in the Suez Canal zone, sold Cairo military equipment and large scale wheat shipments on easy credit terms, and sent warships and paratroopers for joint exercises with the Egyptians. There are also credible rumors that Russian spetsnaz teams have been operating from western Egypt against Daesh terrorists in Libya. -- JWS
