The United States of America – The Real Reason Why They Are Never Winning Their Wars

by Peter Koenig, Global Research:

This essay is inspired by Professor James Petras’s article, describing that the US never wins wars despite trillions of investments in her war budget and obvious military superiority.

Professor Petras is of course right, the United States is currently engaged in seven bloody wars around the globe (Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Libya) and has not been winning one, including WWII. The question is: Why is that?

To these wars, you may want to add the totally destructive and human rights adverse war that literally slaughters unarmed civilians, including thousands of children, in an open-air prison, Gaza, the US proxy war on Palestine, carried out by Israel; plus, warmongering on Iran, Venezuela and North Korea. Let alone the new style wars – the trade wars with China, Europe, and to some extent, Mexico and Canada, as well as the war of sanctions, starting with Russia and reaching around the world – the fiefdom of economic wars also illegal by any book of international economics.

The Bluffer’s Guide to Bombing Syria

by Peter Ford, Russia Insider:

The propaganda mills of the British and American governments – spokespersons, media, think tanks – are working overtime churning out ‘talking points’ to justify the upcoming large scale bombing of Syria on the pretext of use of prohibited weapons.

Here is a guide from a former insider to the top dozen of these lies.

1. There are more babies than jihadis in Idlib. As it happens this gem of moral blackmail is untrue. There are twice as many jihadis (about 100,000) as babies (0-1 year) (55,000). What is this factoid meant to say anyway? Don’t try to free an area of jihadis because you might harm a lot of children? The Western coalition scarcely heeded that consideration in razing Mosul and Raqqa in order to crush ISIS. They are still pulling babies out of the rubble in Raqqa.

SYRIAN STATE MEDIA CLAIMS ISRAEL LAUNCHED MISSILE STRIKE ON AREA NEAR DAMASCUS AIRPORT SATURDAY NIGHT

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

Syria state media said Israel missiles targeted Damascus airport Saturday evening, with regime air defenses firing in response.

Last week, Israel make the somewhat surprise announcement that they have conducted over 200 airstrikeson areas in Syria over the last year. The reason for this they say is the ongoing encroachment by the Iranian military in Syria, and especially near the shared border of the Golan Heights. Tonight, Syrian state media accused Israeli forces of missile strikes on a large area near the Damascus Airport.

Russia, China conduct MASSIVE military exercises in Siberia, and the images are incredible

by Alex Christoforou, The Duran:

Here is a look at the massive “Vostok” (meaning “East”) annual military exercise taking place in Siberia in eastern Russia this week and next. This particular run of the war games is huge, with Chinese troops participating in the drills – the first time even on Russian sovereign soil.

President Putin opened a spectacular troop review that saw Russian and Chinese armor, troops and warplanes parade through a training ground in Siberia. The parade was part of the Vostok 2018 exercise, the biggest in decades.

Neocons Planning Another Syrian False Flag Attack

by James Corbett, The International Forecaster:

The point is, there is no logic here. There doesn’t have to be. We’re in TV-land, and the talking heads have primed the pump by telling the hypnotized masses that a chemical weapons attack is coming.

Speaking of 9/11 War Games, Russia just held some war games on 9/11. And not just any war games, but the biggest war games they’ve held since the Cold War. The drills, scheduled to wrap up on the 17th, involve the deployment of 300,000 troops and include maneuvers in Russia’s Far East region, as well as a naval build up in the waters of the East Sea, the Bering Sea and the Sea of Okhotsk. . . . Oh, and these war games also involve the Chinese military.

Although significant by themselves, these exercises are made all the more significant by the fact that they come hot on the heels of a major naval exercise in the eastern Mediterranean (aka Syria’s doorstep) earlier this month.

US Puts ‘Rubber Stamp’ of Approval on Saudi Slaughter of Yemeni Civilians

by Julia Conley, The Anti Media:

As local journalists in Yemen reported that at least 15 civilians were killed in Saudi airstrikes in the port city of Hodeidah on Wednesday, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo officially certified that Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), whose three-year assault on the country has been made possible by U.S. support, are doing all they can to avoid civilian casualties.

“The governments of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are undertaking demonstrable actions to reduce the risk of harm to civilians and civilian infrastructure resulting from military operations of these governments,” Pompeo said.

Mueller’s FBI Lied to Shut Down Congressional Investigation of Stolen Stealth Defense Technology, Then Comey’s Defense Firm Made Billions

from True Pundit:

It wasn’t bad enough that the FBI under Robert Mueller’s leadership shut down its investigation of stolen U.S. STEALTH defense technology to protect Lockheed Martin while James Comey was Lockheed’s top lawyer.

The FBI next did the unthinkable: Lied to Congressional investigators. And lied big.

For nearly four years the FBI investigated the international theft of STEALTH defense technology from a small Florida marine company that invented an ingenious way to help protect Navy ships and nuclear ballistic submarines from being detected on enemy radar and sonar.

Why Are We Siding With al-Qaeda?

by Ron Paul, Ron Paul Institute:

Last week, I urged the Secretary of State and National Security Advisor to stop protecting al-Qaeda in Syria by demanding that the Syrian government leave Idlib under al-Qaeda control. While it may seem hard to believe that the US government is helping al-Qaeda in Syria, it’s not as strange as it may seem: our interventionist foreign policy increasingly requires Washington to partner up with “bad guys” in pursuit of its dangerous and aggressive foreign policy goals.

Does the Trump Administration actually support al-Qaeda and ISIS? Of course not. But the “experts” who run Trump’s foreign policy have determined that a de facto alliance with these two extremist groups is for the time being necessary to facilitate the more long-term goals in the Middle East. And what are those goals? Regime change for Iran.

WATCH: Terrorists, White Helmets met in Idlib, Syria to plot false-flag chemical attack

by Seraphim Hanisch, The Duran:

According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, and as reported by RT, the Russian military reports being in possession of “irrefutable” data that terrorist groups, including Jabhat al-Nusra (a US proxy which also was affiliated with al-Qaeda) and the “White Helmets”, met in the Idlib province of Syria on Sunday September 2nd.

This meeting was to rehearse and plot the scenarios for the “chemical attacks” (or simulations thereof) to frame the Syrian government forces. This statement was made by the Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov:

Russian Marines Land on Syrian Shores in Massive Mediterranean Drills (VIDEO)

from Russia Insider:

Another warning to Americans to stay out of upcoming offensive on Idlib

Russia has staged large-scale military exercises in the Mediterranean Sea near Syria, involving both its Navy and Air Force. The drills were held amid ongoing escalation around Idlib, and US threats to strike Syria.

Footage released by Russia’s Defense Ministry shows Marine Special Forces equipped with state-of-the-art gear landing on the shores of Syria’s Latakia province. The Marines used helicopters, fast-attack craft and armored vehicles while landing from major amphibious ships under the cover of dozens of Russian combat aircraft.

Moscow Has Upped the Ante in Syria

from Consortium News:

As Syrian forces backed by Russia launch the final showdown in Syria against jihadist extremists in Idlib province, the potential for a U.S.-Russia confrontation has never been greater, as VIPS warns in this memo to the president. September 9, 2018

MEMORANDUM FOR: The President

FROM: Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity

SUBJECT: Moscow Has Upped the Ante in Syria

Mr. President:

We are concerned that you may not have been adequately briefed on the upsurge of hostilities in northwestern Syria, where Syrian armed forces with Russian support have launched a full-out campaign to take back the al-Nusra/al-Qaeda/ISIS-infested province of Idlib.  The Syrians will almost certainly succeed, as they did in late 2016 in Aleppo.  As in Aleppo, it will mean unspeakable carnage, unless someone finally tells the insurgents theirs is a lost cause.

9/11 Truth: War on Terror or “War on Democracy”? The Physical Intimidation of Legislatures

Timely and incisive analysis, this is the text of a talk given by Prof. Graeme MacQueen at McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, on Nov. 18, 2015.

Good evening. I have two sets of introductory comments.

First, my aim tonight is not to prove each of my assertions with a wealth of evidence but to survey four cases briefly in order to reveal a pattern. If you feel I may be on to something it will be up to you to look at these cases in more detail.

Secondly, as a Canadian addressing other Canadians, I want to note that I am aware of the taboos this talk is violating. I will be making claims, and pointing out patterns, that are unwelcome in mainstream society today in Canada. The taboos are held in place with heavy silence and with ridicule, and they are, in my opinion, crucial to the maintenance of the “War on Terror”.
