The Neocons' Real Plan For Syria Emerges From The Lack Of Rubble

Authored by Tom Luongo,

I told you over the weekend that Trump’s presidency was over.  As a practical matter it is.  His yielding to his ‘advisors’ on every foreign policy issue makes it clear that he can’t or won’t stand up to the relentless pressure to do what his instincts tell him.

This morning’s article at the Deep State Washington Post paints a very clear picture of what the situation is.  The advisors whose loyalties are dubious run the show.  Their thinking has not evolved one whit from previous administrations.

Remember what Russian President Vladimir Putin always says, “Presidents change. Policies do not.”

Case in point they manipulated Trump into over-reacting to the Skripal poisoning by ousting 60 Russian diplomats, even though Trump clearly wanted to match Germany and France.

The United States, they explained, would be ousting roughly the same number of Russians as its European allies — part of a coordinated move to punish Moscow for the poisoning of a former Russian spy and his daughter on British soil.

“We’ll match their numbers,” Trump instructed, according to a senior administration official. “We’re not taking the lead. We’re matching.”

The next day, when the expulsions were announced publicly, Trump erupted, officials said. To his shock and dismay, France and Germany were each expelling only four Russian officials — far fewer than the 60 his administration had decided on.

You can almost see the evil glee on the part of the WaPo writer and Trump’s staffers who misled him into signing an order they knew he disagreed with.

And this is why Trump is not president currently.  This is not the first time he’s been backed into a bad decision by the nest of vipers in his administration.

And he won’t be until he removes the worst people from his cabinet.  Unfortunately, the trend on that front is definitely not our friend.

Tillerson out. Pompeo promoted.  McMaster out (who was awful), John Bolton in (who is worse).

So, now that the WaPo is writing victory lap articles for the the Deep State in neutering Trump, let’s talk about where this is headed in regards to this weekend’s attack on Syria.

Target: Iran

I’ll get right to the point.  This attack was all about the long-game of taking down Iran.

Israel is desperate to prevent Iran from remaining in Syria after the war is over. And with good reason.  That’s the prime motivation for their actions.  But, on top of that is the need or the desire to always go farther, to take more than they should and use U.S. assets to achieve those goals which are in no one’s best interests, including Israel’s.

Because despite the rhetoric spewing forth from Lil’ Miss AIPAC, Nikki Haley, a failed state in Syria is not good for Israel.  A beaten and cowed Russia is not good for the world.  And yet, that is exactly the policy that wing of the Trump administration is pushing him to pursue.

Now, if they can’t get that because Gen. James Mattis isn’t a moron, then the next best thing is to prolong the war in Syria for as long as possible.  Why?

To bleed Iran white.  To fight a war it can’t afford and keep its best military units and commanders bound down in Syria and not have them return home to help maintain order.

Events in April are happening quickly.  First, Iran bans the use of dollars internally.  And, predictably, the Iranian Riyal blows up versus the dollar.  Second, the U.S. pushes for much stricter sanctions on both Russia and Iran.

Iranians can’t get dollars and are, again, being cut off from international trade as sanctions create even more uncertainty on the ground there.

At the same time, President Rouhani’s economic reforms are, at best, slow to improve things.  This was the source of the protests that rocked the nation in December, which U.S. and Saudi NGOs tried to fan into a revolution.  Russia is finding it harder to move money around internationally and the U.S. is putting massive pressure on Europe not to do business with Iran.

However, the Italians blocked even stricter sanctions on Iran, so the revolt in Europe is gaining strength.  And that’s going to become a bigger part of this narrative as 2018 barrels ahead.

The goal, of course, is to foment an overthrow of the current Iranian government through external pressure.  And Iran’s support of Syria is a pressure point in that campaign now.

The Empire Strikes Back

The U.S. claims this strike was to end Assad’s future use of chemical weapons, which the Russians say they have irrefutable proof didn’t even occur this time.

That’s the story being sold to what’s left of Trump’s base, the MAGA-drones who can’t accept that he’s not actually running the country despite his public persona to the contrary.

By prolonging the war you bleed out an already bleeding Iranian economy and treasury.  This is why, I think, the U.S. is hell-bent on staying in Syria even though Assad has, for all intents and purposes, won.

The strikes from this weekend were intended to do much more damage than they did.  The U.S. Military’s presser on Friday after the attack was purposeful disinformation.  They only admitted to attacking three sites, all of which were empty and obliterated.

But what about the airstrikes on no less than four Syrian airfields, including Al-Shairat (again)?

No mention of those.

Because they didn’t succeed.

Now, certainly salt this report to taste but there is a major kernel of truth uncovered by it.  The U.S. intended to knock out a major portion of the Syrian Air Force with this strike and failed spectacularly.

Assad’s air force has been one of the most effective parts of the war against the insurgents in Syria.  They are doing what the U.S. leadership says is their goal in Syria, to end the threat of ISIS.

So, it makes less than zero sense for them to then attack Syrian air fields to show Assad it will not accept his using chemical weapons in doing so.

Something doesn’t add up.  And, of course, we’ve known this from the beginning, but now the Russians and Syrians are providing proof of these inconsistencies if only the American people will engage with them.

If the U.S. didn’t do this to just knock out Syria’s CW capability then it must have had a much, much larger goal.

And that goal is Iran.

War Without End

The hope is that Syria will go on long enough and cost the Iranians enough that it will destabilize the country and force an overthrow of the Mullahs. 

There comes a point where guns meet butter.

This strategy is consistent with the thinking of the Neocon/Deep State trolls in charge at the White House.  It makes sense strategically to a guy like Mattis who knows Syria cannot become a truly failed state lest the entire region go off the rails, but at the same time wants a much different Iran.

Putin and Xi will not play along with this and will move to strengthen Iran’s money situation through increased oil revenue.  The Saudis’ pushing this escalation behind the scenes will put them in a bind when China finally says, “Nope. Not paying for your oil with dollars anymore. In fact, we’re not buying oil from you period.”

At that point the real chaos is unleashed.  Never forget that the Russians can withstand lower oil prices better than any producer.  China is the marginal buyer of Saudi oil and the Saudis are becoming less important to them by the day.

Trump was forced to voice in his speech on Friday an overt plea to Putin to give up his alliance with China and Iran, abandon Syria and some of his transgressions will be forgiven.

Trump didn’t believe those words anymore than I did, but watching him confirmed for me that he knows there will not be peace any time soon.  That he’s not up to the task of resisting the pressure.

Just as I said this weekend to the dismay of many, including myself.  What it revealed was that no matter who wins, the world loses.

It seems that it was a much larger strike than what the West is willing to admit. As such, this was not limited strike on three targets (106 missles to take out three unhardened structures...think about how ABSURD that notion is on its face!)

There seems to be a growing consensus that the "allies" targeted EIGHT and not three targets; there are also reports that suggest Russian used EW (jamming the missles at their most vulnerable part of their approach when they switch from relying on GPS and use their internal guidenance honing systems during the last phase of their flight):

apparently the Pentagon is concerned about (by some accounts a failed strike) that it intends to launch an internal probe:

It seems the Russian forces found yet another chemical lab in a basement of a building in East Gouda (be sure to watch the video):

Removing the untermensch trash is exactly what Bibi's plan is.  But he is having difficulties achieving his goals.

That is why the US is forced into ridiculous strategies like sitting on al Tanf training "freedom fighters" while being surrounded by SAA forces.

There is no rational reason for the US to make any of these moves, except that foreign policy is not in the interest, or hands, of Americans.  

The US is ZOG.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand that America doesn't want to leave Syria and wishes to derive revenues from the seized oilfields to finance the operations. 

But I believe Putin will pull the same trigger than before by sinking the business. What's interesting is to see how will this play with Kurdish people, because this is a gambit America and its Jewish master faux race will use. 

The best argument for Assad and Putin is that no one trusts America, or has any interest in trusting them giving their gorgeous track record of treasons.

At some point the Kurds will react to oust Americans. This will probably be when they realize they will use them to legitimate the stealing of their mineral wealth as well as them being used as a refugee camp while they will try to empty Syria to make room for the Jews. 

In the meantime it's also obvious they will try to vilify and kill Assad as many times as possible, because he is the symbol of Syrian unity, the great roadblock in the Israeli vision of achieving their eretz Israel theme park.

Bibi is clearly a Rothschild agent, like Merkel, May and Macron.  But that doesn't change the fact that his hasn't been able fulfill his assignment.

Another problem he faces is that mosque on temple mount where the Rothschilds want the third temple built.  My guess is that either some "Iranian Terrorists" take the mosque and it will be destroyed to save it, or "Iranian Terrorists" will be accused of blowing it up directly with rockets.

Oh, he's been biting it, all right. All this Mueller bullshit, the raid on his lawyer - none of that would be happening if Trump were actually a Ziopuppet like all the (((shills and trolls))) here keep saying.

Did (((banksters))) save Trump's bacon? I'm sure they did. But ask yourself, how badly they ass-fucked him in so doing? I think Trump hates those fuckers and is trying to engineer their downfall. If he can't do it himself, he can at least force them to reveal themselves openly to the normies. In fact, on that front, he's doing a bang-up job.

I see where you are coming from and still live in hope. I was prepared to give him the benefit of the doubt until recently, however, if Trump really wanted to do a bang-up job on the Rothschilds he would bite them where it really hurts.... and end the private Fed. But he cannot because USA INC. and the Fed are practically one of the same. The USA INC. private corporation is a front for the Fed, like a ouroboros they are so interlinked. I doubt one can exist without the other.

The ouroboros eats its own tail to sustain its life, in an eternal cycle of renewal.     

I dare you Trump! Bring the Bank back 'in-house'. Destroy the ouroboros and their make-believe fiat factory. Start anew for and with the real people. 

Alas Trump, his family & associates currently have far too many business interests tied-up with them.

If you are hoping Trump backs up the truck filled with Pharisees for a mass dumping, you will be SORELY disappointed. The best thing any Trump supporter can do at this point is pray that Bolton/Pompeo don't force Trump to push the Samson option or that one or both make Trump look as foolish and stupid as he does right now in service to the Kazharians. The FF WAS OBVIOUS. It awakenned and pissed off many a #Maga and alot of former shillary supporters too. Trump is a flaming narcissist. You can get narcissists to do just about anything when fanning the flames of EGO, but if you make him a FOOL you will pay .and nothing means more to Trump than his Twitter fans.....

Speaking of the temple mount, I saw some information that the temple mount wasn't the actual mount of the 2nd temple but was instead an old Roman fortress.  The 2nd temple was actually in the City of David which I think is south of the temple mount.  And some archaeologists are actually finding proof of this with the discovery of some areas where they sacrificed animals, and also by researching old writings of that time.  If this is true, then the jews are praying to the western Roman fortress wall. I don't know if this is true or not, but this is what some people are saying.

King Solomon was a fictional, composite character based on Amenhotep III and Shalmaneser III.

This is from the Domain of Man site:

In the Bible, King Solomon is said to have:

1) Inherited a vast empire conquered by his father David that extended from the Nile in Egypt to the Euphrates River in Mesopotamia.

2) Accumulated great wealth and wisdom.

3) Administered his kingdom through a system of 12 districts.

4) Possessed a large harem, which included "the daughter of Pharaoh".

5) Honored other gods in his old age.

6) Devoted his reign to great building projects, including:

a) the Temple.

b) the Royal Palace.

c) the walls of Jerusalem,

d) the Millo (an earthen fill made to enlarge Jerusalem)

e) the royal cities of Megiddo, Hazor, and Gezer

f) the store cities, the cities for his horsemen and the cities for his chariots throughout his empire.

To be consistent with the pattern of other great Bronze and Iron Age cultures in the ancient Near East (Egyptian, Babylonian, Assyrian, and Hittite), it would be expected that numerous documents, art, and inscriptions on buildings or public monuments would have been left by such a great king or by his descendants later in honor of him. Yet no article of any kind bearing his name has ever been found.

The cities of Hazor, Megiddo and Gezer have now been extensively excavated. A stratum containing large palaces, temples and strong fortifications was found in each of these cities. The name of Solomon was not found, but the cartouche of the 18th Dynasty Pharaoh Amenhotep III instead. In Jerusalem, it has not been possible to excavate the temple mount, however, extensive excavations in the city, including the areas adjacent to the temple mount have not revealed the existence of a Solomaic palace complex. Moreover, excavation of the Millo has revealed (due to pottery found in the Millo) that its original construction was also contemporary with the Egyptian 18th Dynasty of Amenhotep III.

Fables of Ancient Israel Now Being Dissected

Be ready for a major upsetting of the apple cart. Unknown to almost all laymen, a huge number of scholars have quietly come together agreeing on a historical fact that will overturn the entirety of “court history” when all the facts they have gathered become widely known.

They agree that the various tales of “ancient Israel” are largely fictional. Based upon the known facts of geography, history, archeology and even biblical scholarship, many of them argue there was no such entity as “ancient Israel”—that it never existed. Is it possible that ancient Israel is a hoax?

If a hoax it is, then clearly “ancient Israel” is the most profitable hoax in history, with the possible exception of its twin fairy tale, the “court historian” view of what happened to the Jews of Europe during World War II (it is claimed that there was a systematic policy of exterminating them by the German government; among the specific claims are that 6 million Jews were gassed to death; however, there is no evidence of any of this).

In spite of the sensational nature of these findings about “ancient Israel,” they are, so far, all but totally unknown to the general public, including even history buffs. Colleges have been reluctant to teach the facts, and many Christian pastors stay away from these truths as if they would be cursed by God, Himself.

There was a time, not so long ago, when one simply did not question the Old Testament. If the Old Testament said something had happened at some time in the past, then it happened, and that was that, regardless of whether there was any other evidence for the event outside of it’s pages. No one even considered that it might be fictional. Today that is no longer the case.

No More Myths

Solomon, the quintessential Jewish wiseguy, allegedly ruled over a great empire and built a fabulous temple in Jerusalem, but archeologists have not found a trace of evidence to support the Hebrew myth.

Correct, the US has been infected with a cancer that completely took over in 1913 and then promptly dragged the US into two world wars.

And you are right, this money changer cancer that infected the US long ago is metasticizing across the planet under the mantel of "democracy".

But even if there was some kind of a chemo therapy that could remove the cancerous tumors concentrated in Yankee New England, the planet would still be dying from cancer until you take care of all the cancer cells.

The following article highlights many connections - Trump, Kushner, Greenstein, Haley, etc... (The rabbit holes are very deep)

https://animeright.news/zanting/ira-greenstein-jared-kushners-criminal-…

 

Control of fossil fuel deposits and flow:

https://www.mintpressnews.com/how-the-us-occupied-the-30-of-syria-conta…

Northeastern Syria is an important region owing to its rich natural resources, particularly fossil fuels in the form of natural gas and oil. Indeed, this area contains 95 percent of all Syrian oil and gas potential — including al-Omar, the country’s largest oil field. Prior to the war, these resources produced some 387,000 barrels of oil per day and 7.8 billion cubic meters of natural gas annually, and were of great economic importance to the Syrian government. However, more significantly, nearly all the existing Syrian oil reserves – estimated at around 2.5 billion barrels – are located in the area currently occupied by the U.S. government.

In addition to Syria’s largest oil field, the U.S. and its proxies in northeast Syria also control the Conoco gas plant, the country’s largest. The plant, which can produce nearly 50 million cubic feet of gas per day, was originally built by U.S. oil and gas giant ConocoPhillips, which operated the plant until 2005, after which Bush-era sanctions made it difficult to operate in Syria. Other foreign oil companies, like Shell, also left Syria as a result of the sanctions.

General Wesley Clark let the truth slip out years ago when he said the plan was to topple the governments of Iraq, then Libya, Syria, the Sudan Yemen and Iran. That this is happening and the  rest of the western world and the propaganda press has not been able to make the connection shows how evil and corrupt western leaders have become.

So tired of these stories acting like Trump has been sidelined. Nonsense. The writer and many here simply refuse to acknowledge that politicians will tell you ANYTHING to get elected and then feel free to thumb their nose at you. We see this over and over again, but since this so many have hung so many hopes on this President, they simply refuse to believe he is doing what he chooses to do. Acting as if the President can't act on his own is the funniest and sadist excuses that have ever been concocted. If that were true, there would be no need to bother to vote at all, since it would not matter anyway!

The POTUS has been irrrelivant in foreign policy since the 35th was gunned down in broad daylight basically across the street from the police station. And the public was given a commission to circumvent all laws, claimed a communist sympathizing FBI agent did it with a 12 dollar rifle and a magical bullet. The communist sympathizer was then shot 2 days later in same police department basement.

Sounds like cave dwelling radical guiding a bunch of Saudi terrorists to fly planes into office towers and US military headquarters, after drinking all night with strippers, again they pull out a good ‘ol commission (why not worked before) to circumvent laws, while POTUS reads upside down book to children. The Saudi terrorists survive ‘the mission’ only to sue the US, but are paid off to be silent. The same FBI says the radical cave dweller is not charged for this since evidence is lackin, but the MIC pursue him in Afghan for 11 years.

“Do you know who is in command here soldier ?”

”Yea.”  With a heroin induced stare.

The Iranian Rial is collapsing against international currencies right now. What do you think would happen if the Mullahs produced and circulated silver and gold coins and certificates as money? Isn't it time SOMEONE does that? 

They have oil up the wazoo and they can demand payment in PM. Its very dangerous but then these are very dangerous times.

no fuckwit only if you are limited to literature and film.

The narcissist/psychopath/controller set of traits is genetically determined ie inherited, and so hardwired in  5% or more of most countries and in some nationalities much higher percentage. 

This has zero to do with some fuckwit psychologists wank, these people have no guilt, no shame, no conscience, no ability to love and they mimic others instead so they act and manipulate. But sadistic pleasure at the sufferings of others runs constantly.

Saw my ex husband  go out and cut weeping aust native plants into lollypops and when he was prevented  from hurting others like me or my son, he put a bolt thru his hand, dropped a chainsaw on his foot and was pissing blood over 3 days. 

Thats how to deal with these scum, prevent them from hurting others. NO response to the trolls. They will self harm. Look at the IDF  throwing  flash grenades  at their own people. Giving hell to Palestinians safeguards their own from implosion.

I am a lifetime expert on this, I remember meeting my father when I was 6 weeks old.
