China Sides With Russia In Syrian War, Will Provide "Aid And Military Training" To Assad

Tyler Durden's picture

Ever since the return of the Syrian war in 2015, which has seen both US alliance forces and as - of last - September, Russian forces too, jousting for political influence in the region under the guise of fighting ISIS while in reality either seeking to oust or preserve the Assad regime, one major player was missing: China.

That is about to change as the last major superpower enters the world's most volatile - and dangerous - region.

Beijing and Damascus have agreed that the Chinese military will have closer ties with Syria, and provide humanitarian aid to the civil war torn nation, a high-ranking People's Liberation Army officer said, adding that the training of Syrian personnel by Chinese instructors has also been discussed, according to Xinhua.

As has been historically the case, China tends to leave Middle Eastern diplomacy to the other permanent members of the U.N. Security Council, namely the United States, Britain, France and Russia, while relying on the region for oil supplies. But lately, for unknown reasons, China has been trying to get more involved, including sending envoys to help push for a diplomatic resolution to the violence there and hosting Syrian government and opposition figures according to Reuters.

The Director of the Office for International Military Cooperation of China's Central Military Commission, Guan Youfei, arrived in Damascus on Tuesday for talks with Syrian Defense Minister Fahad Jassim al-Freij, Xinhua added.

Guan said China had consistently played a positive role in pushing for a political resolution in Syria.

"China and Syria's militaries have a traditionally friendly relationship, and China's military is willing to keep strengthening exchanges and cooperation with Syria's military," the news agency paraphrased Guan as saying.

Rear Admiral Guan Youfei

Guan and al-Freij discussed the enhancement of training and "reached a consensus" on the Chinese military providing humanitarian aid to Syria, Xinhua reported, without providing further details.

As to who China will side with, it should come as little surprise that the answer is "not the US." 

Last year, there were media reports that China had sent dozens of
military advisers to Syria to help the country fight terrorists, however these were never confirmed.

This time, however, we have confirmation. Guan met a Russian general in Damascus, Xinhua reported without giving details.

While China has shown no interest in getting involved militarily in Syria, China's special envoy for the crisis there in April praised Russia's military role in the war as the Kremlin staged a bombing campaign there in September 2015 to March 2016. Russia still has some of its forces in the country to provide humanitarian and military assistance to Syrian President Bashar Assad’s government.

Which means that as of this moment, every major  world superpower is officially involved in the Syrian war, which has on various occasions been aptly called a powderkeg for what may be the next global military conflict - to be sure, all required players are now officially involved.

Sounds like China has such a huge hold over the world's gold that now it is going to start loading up on and hoarding the world's remaining oil too.

Personally, I like the site, it has good info occasionally. That said, could you just try to make a cogent arguement once and prove you're not a bot? Your stealth BS links rightfully just piss this audience off, haven't you figured that out yet?

And weekly reincarnations don't make it either. Just do the hard work!

Russia - China and their client on the one side; USA and its clients on the other side. A civil war instigated by outsiders.

Syria is the new Korea.

But if Russia finishes off ISIS and then throws a venomous look at the KSA, it will be the Waterloo, Stalingrad, Dien bien phu, Armeggadon, all combined into one for the CIA.

The Greek word Armageddon in Rev. 16:16 has a basis in Hebrew grammar that is not often explained and the prophetic significance is affected. "Megiddo," as a place name, is the Jezreel valley fortress in northern Israel but the name has no final ‘n’ letter. Megiddon with a final ‘n’ is found only in the Zech. 12:11 text.

In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.

The root ideas are ‘gather’ (GADÀD), and ‘troops’ (GADÙD). Megiddo means ‘gathering of troops’ and final ‘n’ infers ‘place of...’ So Megiddon is not a name but rather a generic term for a battlefield, ‘place of gathering of troops.’ It is not likely that Arm– is transliterated from ‘har’ (mountain). No mountain is indicated in Megiddo texts and the valley near Megiddo is always called Jezreel. A likely xplanation has been overlooked, even though the Zech. 12:11 text has the clue. Hadad and Rimmon are two gods of ancient Syria which were not known in Israel at any time. Hence the mourning of Hadad-Rimmon must be in Syria. In Hebrew, Syria is Aram. It becomes Arm– if joined in compound to another word. So the Greek word ‘Armageddon’ (Rev. 16:16) is a transliteration of Aram + megiddon, and means ‘the place in Syria of the gathering of troops.’

China is still booming and what's odd they have almost zero crime compared to the widespread looting and burning in America.


That's odd.

Gold = capital.  When the currency resets hit globally, China announces their actual gold reserves and recapitalizes their banks with gold-backed currency.  Not fucking rocket science.  Bankruptcies clear, assets repriced and put back into play immediately.  Ownership of all assets (built with Western capital investment and Western consumers' money) remains in Chinese hands.  The factories are still there, the dams, the roads, even the ghost cities.  Repriced assets plus repriced currency = domestic markets.

Take that, Krugman you fucking moron.

It's almost as if they plan decades ahead, not by the financial quarter!

So what? Krugman has all the gold ETFs. Heck, he can create gold ETFs out of thin air. He will monetise them.

It is also racial.  North east asians do little crime no matter where they are transplanted to.  Extreme consensual behaviors are an evolutionary output of surviving fourth ice age.


Those races in more equatorial temperate regions did not have to "get along" to the same degree as those in the more extreme and challenging northern climates. 


Long range planning consensual behaviors, high trust - those things required for high civilization, are carried by races that evolved in extreme fourth ice age climate: namely north east asians, such as Han Tribes, and North Western Europeans.

When the bill comes due?  


Do you have any idea what China and Russia have been doing over the past decade while the US has been scamming and prostituitng the entire planet?


They have been stockpiling precious metals against the dollar collapse!


When the bill comes due, the US will have its throat under the boot heal of the East.  And the power people will be crawling into the holes in the rocks waiting for the storm to pass while the blood of the innocents pour in the gutters!

Nah, the US may have gold or it may not have gold in Ft. Knox. But when the balloon goes up ALL gold held on US soil by foolish "allies" will become property of the US government:

1. Possession is 9/10 of the law, and
2. The Golden Rule: He who has the gold makes the rules.

Factor in the US as the 4th largest gold miner and we will be fucking cherry. And by we, I mean the parasitic elites.

Why do you think Germany gets installments instead of all of "it's" gold? Simple. The endgame is so close that delaying the bulk gold, the balance of what it's owed, will benifit the US. When they close the "gold window" the second time Germany will be left with 1/5 of what it's owed, and see 1 and 2 above.

GadExp's picture

Good points.  But I suspect that the US refuses gold deliveries, not because they don't want to give it up, but rather because they don't have enough to deliver.  This wreaks of the Nixon era.


Also, yes the US is the 4th largest gold producer......and the top three are where?  The EAST!  China, Australia, and Russia.

gonetogalt's picture

Knowing the absolute corruption of The World Gold Council, and knowing how easily history can be re-invented, I seriously question the basic assumptions defining gold, Koos Jansen, Jim Willie, et al aside.

We know the juicy bankers have traded and amassed gold for hundreds of years, with enough to direct world affairs at least since the Napoleanic wars. What if the unquestioned fact that there is 180,000 tons above ground global total is BS?

Could the juice be sitting on a huuuuuuuge stack? And that's without reference to the dubious Yamashita story which is at least partially true, I suspect.

Remember, all the great Philanthropic foundations of 100=120 years ago are individually exempted from any legal/financial oversite by Act of Congress, hence the personal fortunes are totally opaque if lodged in the halls of Mordor.

As a life time miner, I've experienced USGS (geological survey) outright and systemically lie over great issues for over 50 years. This lie would be no greater.

All that to say there will be a reset, but maybe a huge surprise too.

since the late 19th century to present the 'Rothschild's & Assoc.' have put their money on JAPAN[!]... Chiang Kai-shek [Formosa/ Taiwan]   

they financed the     and the Bolseviks Revolution      (the Rothschilds made a potion of their vast wealth in the 'OPIUM WARS'      mid/19thc.  

there is a lot of history to absorb here, but the bottom-line being... that, the 'Rothschild's Dynasty' is certainly on the wrong side of history today in funding 'Global Wars', or simply put 'BLOWBACK'! with so much history exposing the recent past, being so readily available on every persons WWW?! it's pretty hard to hide the lies from the truth! 


True Blue's picture

but the bottom-line being... that, the 'Rothschild's Dynasty' is certainly on the wrong side of history today in funding 'Global Wars'

I disagree with that. Allow me to explain.

You left off your list several much more significant entities the Rothschilds put their money on. The Rothschilds put their money on Napoleon Bonaparte and many of the various countries who fought against Napoleon; especially England. They lent to both sides, and to the arms manufacturers who supplied them (those that the Red Shield didn't own outright.)

They do not care about hiding their lies on a long term basis, the short term is all they need. The illustration of Napoleon continues. When Wellington and Prinz Eugen et al defeated Napoleon at Waterloo, the loss of all the loans to France should have bankrupted the Rothschilds, but their messengers made it from the field of battle to London before Wellington's official messengers -which allowed Meyer Rothschild to pull one of histoy's biggest scams. The day after the battle, the Rothschilds knew the outcome, and knew that their entire financial empire hung in the balance; so Meyer pretended that England had lost the battle and began shorting the pound and the Bank of England. This caused a rout, crashing the Bank of England -which the Rothschilds began buying up at literal pennies on the pound. By the time news arrived detailing the British victory at Waterloo -it was too late; the Rothschilds were majority owners of England's banking system and have been ever since.

Plenty of people know and see their lies -after it is too late to do anything to stop them.

earleflorida's picture

who killed Lincoln?

why,... it was the Rothschild's because the POTUS refused to pay outrageous interest rates {usuary} for reconstruction cost of the devastating post Civil-War.

the Rothschild's lost their controlling interest in the Suez Canal. a big blow!  colonel [egypt] nasser nationalized the 'Golden Calf'.

again, Nasser didn't live much longer?

the Rothschild's created virtually the original term for the 19th & 20th century "BOND GHOULS"

they... the Rothschild private banks are all wholly owed by these 'Ashkenazi European Jews' and keep it all in the, 'family` jewry tradition' of helping, only their own!!!

lastly, they Rothschilds could give two-shits about equities. They finance countries/ sovereign debt via bonds. And, if you find yourself in default, you'll find yourself deposed/ murdered or with a coup/ new regime!

Chinese Jews are of an ancient origin actually. And then there were the 'arrivals' who came to manage the Opia-fication of China all those sweet years ago..  They managed opium trade and ensured subujugation, and any good Mammonist jew, or negro, or white man would.

Let me explain it to you clearly.  The banker cartel hates the CONSTITUTION, not America.  


The the current USA - the corrupted, protituted, disformed, shadow of it's former glory - is like their pick-up truck - the vehicle they are using to do their heavy lifting.


A loss on the Syrian front (or any of their unholy human-massacreing war fronts) is not a loss for the Constitution.  It is a loss for the power people's pick-up truck.


They don't want their truck to break down any more than the good guys want the Constitution to break down.

Let me explain both of you MORE clearly:

The bankers hate everyone, that is one of the reasons why LIBERALS/BANKERS want every culture, religion and country destroyed. They are just over grassing, and injecting vast quantities of hormones to the cow so she can be milked mre profittably before it dies, it does not matter if it dies early. When it dies, tehy will move to Russia, or China or what ever place they pick next and they will do teh same, until their agenda has advanced sufficiently enough for their complete take over.

But but but... Cash for Clunkers was a success! (?) Right, guys?!  *Gulp* GUYS?!

(I jest, of course. It was a success in bleeding out a lot of affordable transport from us po' folk [and reducing opportunities for person-to-person /off-the-record car sales] and likely contributed to driving up [no pun intended] the prices of used cars, too. And people went for it, naturally ("If you like your clunker, you can keep your clunker."). Chalk up another point for the oligarchy; it's harder to fight a totalitarian state if you can't get around. Gee, thanks, Obama!)
