UPDATE: Putin Bombs Islamic State, Saudis Bomb a Wedding and Obama Bombs a Hospital. Tell me… who are the terrorists again?
The Russian airstrikes are having a pronounced effect on the Obama administration’s regime change operation in Syria.
Do you guys remember years ago when the ‘conspiracy theorists’ were the only ones saying the ‘civil war’ in Syria was really all about Obama forcing a regime change? And now, well that’s common knowledge, isn’t it? Even from the spokesman from the White House, the story is all about removing the legitimate government of the country. Everyone is a conspiracy theorist these days.. even the folks at Bloomberg.
A week into Russia’s military intervention in Syria, some top White House advisers and National Security Council staffers are trying to persuade President Barack Obama to scale back U.S. engagement there, to focus on lessening the violence and, for now, to give up on toppling the Syrian regime.

Now that Russia is actually targeting our CIA-backed “moderate” terrorist groups in Syria, they are starting to lose serious ground. The Syrian military was holding them at bay and did pretty well fighting against a cowardly terrorist unconventional warfare operation for 4 years, but as the US, France and a number of other countries started bombing campaigns in support of our
terrorists freedom fighters, the playing field shifted and the government of Syria was in deep trouble.
That’s why Russia decided to level it a bit and jumped in to support the Syrian government.
Since then the CIA’s “moderate” terrorists are on the run and it appears the US has decided to stop hiring thugs from places like Jordan and Saudi Arabia for the time being. That $500 million dollar terrorism slush fund is going to have to be re-purposed, according to the Pentagon and the White House.
The Obama administration has ended the Pentagon’s $500 million program to train and equip Syrian rebels, administration officials said on Friday, in an acknowledgment that the beleaguered program had failed to produce any kind of ground combat forces capable of taking on the Islamic State in Syria…
A senior Defense Department official, who was not authorized to speak publicly and who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said that there would no longer be any more recruiting of so-called moderate Syrian rebels to go through training programs in Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia or the United Arab Emirates. Instead, a much smaller training center would be set up in Turkey, where a small group of “enablers” — mostly leaders of opposition groups — would be taught operational maneuvers like how to call in airstrikes. New York Times
This change of policy is being credited to a letter sent to the CIA, Pentagon and the White House by 4 senators instead of being credited as a change motivated by Russia’s success at running our terrorists out of town.
The letter sent by Christopher S. Murphy, Democrat of Connecticut; Joe Manchin III, Democrat of West Virginia; Tom Udall, Democrat of New Mexico; and Mike Lee, Republican of Utah, makes it clear they feel the program is actually aiding the very groups they thought this was all about defeating, including al Qaeda.
The Syria Train and Equip Program goes beyond simply being an inefficient use of taxpayer dollars. As many of us initially warned, it is now aiding the very forces we aim to defeat. On Friday, USCENTCOM confirmed that some of the fighters that we trained and equipped had turned over ammunition and trucks to al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Syria, Al Nusra Front. Tom Udall
This letter had nothing to do with the CIA deciding to pull their terrorist operation in Syria as is evidenced by this statement:
The official said the training was “to be suspended, with the option to restart if conditions dictate, opportunities arise.” New York Times
Clearly, if they halted the program due to opposition to the plan from 4 senators, how is that going to change allowing them to restart it? What ‘conditions’ are they talking about?
The conditions are very simple and very obvious (though the New York Times finds a way to miss the real story (as usual))
If Russia stops bombing our terrorist mercenaries in Syria, then that would present an “opportunity” for them to resume their unconventional warfare operation in the country.
Seems pretty straight forward, doesn’t it?
“At least 3,000 militants from Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL), al-Nusra and Jaish al-Yarmouk have fled to Jordan. They are afraid of the Syrian army having stepped up activities on all fronts and of Russian airstrikes,” the RIA source said.
The army operations going on in various areas and provinces are resulting in more deaths within the terrorist organization’s ranks, with the army units striking hard on terrorists’ positions, destroying also their heavy armaments and equipment, as Russia ramped up the military campaign against ISIS positions in the country. SANA
In a statement on Thursday, Gen. Ayoub announced that the Syrian armed forces started today a large-scale assault aimed at uprooting the gatherings of terrorists and expelling them from the areas and towns which have been suffering of the woes and crimes of terrorism. SANA
You think a letter from 4 senators forced the CIA and Pentagon to give up on their 4-year terrorist regime change operation or do you think it might have had more to do with Russia and the Syrian military blowing the shit out of our $500 million dollar mercenaries?
After all, it’s kinda hard to keep your unconventional warfare regime change operation going when your Takfari mercenaries are fleeing to another country after cashing their paychecks at the local AMSCOT.
This new info might explain stories like this one:
A crisis relief charity chief is set to pull the plug on aid to the Calais ‘Jungle’ camp after discovering most people there are economic migrants ‘without any reason’ to leave their home country…
Instead of vulnerable families fighting for survival he found the camp – dubbed the Jungle – was ’95 to 97 per cent’ adult men…
Mr Tokan, who heads the international charity’s global orphan and family programmes, said many migrants in Calais had no ‘valid’ reason for going to the UK and should have stayed at home.
He said: ‘They have enough food, they have enough clothes and we have seen clothes everywhere thrown. I think we need to find other places. These people come from certain countries which are safe (Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia or the United Arab Emirates perhaps?), everything is there, they can work, but I don’t know why they came here. Daily Mail
Well perhaps there is a valid reason for all of these fighting age men to be in refugee camps across Europe. Perhaps its’ because they were promised a paycheck and a new life somewhere in the UK if they committed terrorist acts in Syria for a while until Regime Change or the Russians came along.
