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…

British Escalate With a Hoax in Syria; This Propaganda Could Lead to World War

British Escalate With a Hoax in Syria; This Propaganda Could Lead to World War

On Tuesday morning, alleged novichok nerve agent poisoning victim and Russian citizen Yulia Skripal was released from a Salisbury hospital. British media claimed she was being taken to an undisclosed location for her and her father's security, but the real motivation of the UK government appears to be keeping Yulia from communicating with the press, especially the Russian media, and from making any more phone calls to her cousin in Russia that will end up on Russian TV. The released recording of Yulia's call to her cousin appeared to contradict both the Theresa May government's claims that Yulia was poisoned by Russian agents she still fears with a toxin ten times deadlier than VX; and that Yulia's internationally recognized rights under UK ratified treaty laws to consular access by her Embassy have not been violated.

Now even the British tabloid press has picked up on complaints from Yulia's extended family that she is not free to speak to them or return to Russia. Not for nothing are we seeing reports that the Skripals will be sent to the USA and given new identities by the FBI witness protection program 'for their own protection' from presumably further poisoning attempts by agents of Vladimir Putin, if not normal contact with their relatives in Russia -- who have been denied visas by the British government...which they've said has something to hide. This failed propaganda offensive by the British, which resulted in the expulsion of Russian diplomats by many NATO countries -- but not a decisive economic breach between Moscow and countries pivotal to its energy trade led by Germany and Austria -- set the stage for the staged chemical attack in Douma. Which is now the latest pretext for an Anglo-American attack on Syria. -- JWS

Ukrainian Rockets' (North Korean) Red Glare

Ukrainian Rockets' (North Korean) Red Glare

Hours after we published a RogueMoney article on the U.S./NATO buildup against Russia in and around Ukraine, The New York Times reported that the Ukrainian rocket engines firm Yuzhmash illicitly shipped powerful boosters to North Korea. These engines originally designed in the Soviet Union for ICBMs like the SS-18 'Satan' are said to account for North Korea's major leap in missile range achieved in recent tests. Yuzhmash is of course, like many other Soviet legacy Ukrainian industries, facing ruin due to the cutoff of trade with Russia since 2014.

With the recently passed UN Security Council (UNSC) sanctions supported by Russia and China potentially opening the door to sanctioning any nation that proliferates nuclear or missile technology to Pyongyang, not suprisingly Yuzhmash and the U.S.-backed Kiev government are denying everything. But the story is coming at a difficult time for Kiev, as a growing number of Americans ask why neo-Nazi and torchlight marches chanting 'blood and soil' are unacceptable in Charlottesville, Virginia but sponsored by the American taxpayer and Arizona U.S. Sen. John McCain via funding for the Ukrainian National Guard's SS rune flag waving Azov Battalion...

The Guerrilla Interviews Mimi al Laham aka Syrian Girl (@PartisanGirl)

The Guerrilla Interviews Mimi al Laham aka Syrian Girl (@PartisanGirl)

V the Guerrilla Economist interviews Mimi al Laham aka Syrian Girl from Australia on her views of the proxy war that has ravaged her homeland over the last six years. Al-Laham is a Muslim who defends a secular, multiconfessional Syrian state, whose family was persecuted by the father of the current President Bashir al-Assad, Hafez al-Assad.

For the last few years through her Twitter feed and Youtube channel, Syrian Girl has exposed the U.S/UK government funded propaganda supporting Washington's Saudi/Qatari backed jihadist takfiris posing as moderate rebels fighting Assad. She also worked with MIT professor/arms control expert Dr. Ted Postol to expose the August 2013 East Ghouta sarin attack as a false flag operation blamed on the Syrian Arab Army. Mimi has appeared on numerous media platforms including Infowars, Russia Today and Iran's Press TV. - JWS

Yemen: USS Maddox, Er, USS Mason -- Did Yemenis Really Fire Missiles at the US Navy? Plus Diego Garcia Rumors

Yemen: USS Maddox, Er, USS Mason -- Did Yemenis Really Fire Missiles at the US Navy? Plus Diego Garcia Rumors

While President Barack Hussein Obama convened a 'war cabinet' to discuss the fading prospect of the lame duck Commander in Chief ordering strikes against Russian-defended Assad government troops on Friday, Vice President Joe Biden (father to the 'ex' cocaine addict Burisma Holdings in Ukraine executive Hunter Biden) and the CIA declared a cyberwar against Russia in the press. The U.S. Department of Defense meanwhile, launched Tomahawk cruise missiles with Obama's authorization at alleged Yemeni radar sites that were used in missile attacks against a UAE military transport and the guided missile destroyer, the USS Mason.

The only problem with the stated rationale for now direct U.S. intervention in Yemen? The Saleh loyalist Yemenis and the Houthis insist the attempted missile strikes on the USS Mason never happened, and the Americans made the incident up to justify intervening on behalf of their failing Saudi allies. Was the incident in which the Navy says at least two anti-ship missiles fell into the sea real, or was it a false flag/faked attack like the infamous 'North Vietnamese gun boat assaults on the USS Maddox' that led to 1964's Gulf of Tonkin resolution?

Charlie Foxtrot: U.S. Special Forces Cursed as 'Infidels' and 'Pigs', Threatened by 'Moderate' FSA Jihadists Washington/Langley Spent Billions to Arm and Train

Charlie Foxtrot: U.S. Special Forces Cursed as 'Infidels' and 'Pigs', Threatened by 'Moderate' FSA Jihadists Washington/Langley Spent Billions to Arm and Train

The filmed stream of curses for American special forces soldiers happened this week in the Syrian-Turkish border town of Al-Rai, occupied by U.S. and Turkey-backed 'moderate' 'Free Syrian Army' jihadis

Sens. John McCain, Mrs. John McCain Lindsey Graham, Rep. Adam KinzingerThe Daily Beast's Michael D. Weiss, Bellingcat's Eliot Higgins, Charles 'Doha/Ahrar-al-Sham' Lister, Hillary 'muh No Fly Zone to protect these bastards from getting bombed by Russia' Clinton and many other advocates for the 'moderates' of the 'Free Syrian Army' could apparently not be reached for comment on this. Perhaps they'll just memory hole the whole thing and pretend it never happened with a lot of help from the press -- but that didn't exactly work in covering up #HillarysHealth due to that whole viral YouTube videos thing. Another example of what the Guerrilla calls the Obso-elites stupidity and incompetence.

As Italy-based American expat writer Theodore Robert Beale aka Vox Day says, "There is clearly some brilliant stategery taking place in the Pentagon these days. These gentlemen are clearly ready to fight WWIII against a Sino-Russian alliance."

Battle for Syraq SITREP 2: Will Turkey Cut the Cord to Jihadists in Syria?

Battle for Syraq SITREP 2: Will Turkey Cut the Cord to Jihadists in Syria?

As Russian President Vladimir Putin hosted his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdoğan Tuesday in St. Petersburg, the Turkish press is putting out warm rhetoric towards the Russian leader and his country. After banning the state funded media agency Sputnik from Turkey after the Turkish Air Force shoot down of the SU-24, post-coup Ankara reinstated the organization's press credentials as a goodwill gesture toward Russia.

However, U.S. and Sunni Persian Gulf aligned media and pundits are poo pooing any potential strategic pivot emerging from Tuesday's Putin-Erdogan meeting that would be averse to Washington's agenda. And it's no accident that as the two leaders meet to try and find some compromise on the issue of Syria where they've been on opposite sides, the Financial Times newspaper is emphasizing the sheer amount of arms and equipment the Jabhat al-Nusra (the 'ex' Al-Qaeda affiliate in Syria) jihadists received via Turkey and their Saudi and Qatari paymasters.

(US)IS Shoots Down Russian Piloted SyAAF Hind Gunship

No wonder the Guerrilla Economist and Team RogueMoney's friend John B. Wells of the Caravan to Midnight program calls them 'USIS' --

The Islamic State has released video it says shows the shoot down of a Russian piloted Syrian Air Force Mi-24 helicopter gunship east of Palmyra this weekend. The Russian Defense Ministry has confirmed that the two pilots on board were killed when the chopper crashed after making a low altitude strafing run in support of the Syrian Arab Army units engaged in combat with the Daesh terrorists. Several things are notable about this incident but it's interesting to notice:

1) The Russian Defense Ministry says ISIS used a TOW anti-tank missile, of the type that the CIA supposedly only supplied to vetted 'moderate' Syrian rebels, but which also was used to down a Russian rescue helicopter last November after Turkey's ambush downing of a SU-24 bomber inside Syrian air space. The perpetrators of that ambush who were part of the 'Free Syrian Army' Latakia 'Coastal Brigades' were caught by the Syrian Arab Army.

2) The usual neocon (Trotyskite and now pro-Sunni Salafist sectarian), NATO-linked Atlantic Council Bellingcat and supposed ISIS expert commentators are letting the masks slip, tweeting 'Free Syrian Army' fanboys' glee over the shoot down:
