Unmasked: Trump Doctrine vows carnage for new axis of evil

by Pepe Escobar, Asian Times

This was no “deeply philosophical address”. And hardly a show of “principled realism” – as spun by the White House. President Trump at the UN was “American carnage,” to borrow a phrase previously deployed by his nativist speechwriter Stephen Miller.

One should allow the enormity of what just happened to sink in, slowly. The president of the United States, facing the bloated bureaucracy that passes for the “international community,” threatened to “wipe off the map” the whole of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (25 million people). And may however many millions of South Koreans who perish as collateral damage be damned.

As Syrians Recapture “Rojava” from Our Newest “Freedom Fighters”, the Covetous Deep State Jockeys for War by Any Means Necessary

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: As if on cue to prove my point, the IDF just shot down a Syrian drone they claim was “flying in Israelis airspace in Golan Heights”. Golan Heights is Syria… not Israel.

UPDATE 2: The Duke of Orange just gave a war-mongering speech at the UN in which he threatened North Korea, Venezuela and Iran and then sucked up to Israel like the whore he is. Then he made reference to Syria:

Donald Trump called Syrian President Bashar al-Assad a “dictator” supported by Iran. He further restated the discredited story that Syria used chemical weapons on civilians in Idlib on the 4 of April 2017. The US President then congratulated himself on his decision to illegally strike Syria on the 6th of April in relation to the alleged chemical attack.

UPDATE 3: HOLY SHIT… Hollywood and the neocons launched a website TODAY designed to propagate BASELESS PROPAGANDA about Russia hacking our election and they even have a slick video by Morgan Friedman saying WE ARE AT WAR with Russia ALREADY. HOLY FUCKING SHIT.

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA), aligned with the Russians, the Turks, the Iranians and Hezbollah, have crossed the Euphrates River and are directly threatening what we call the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) which are made up of Kurds, Kurdish terrorist groups (PKK and YPG for instance), Saudi Wahhabist terrorists and various mercenaries from around the Westernized world.

Syrian troops forced a crossing over the Euphrates river east of Deir ez-Zor on Monday as a part of an operation to clear the city’s outskirts from Daesh terrorists, a Sputnik correspondent and Russian military reported. Over the course of a few hours, the Syrian storm troops have managed to drive Daesh militants out of a number of villages near the city. The correspondent noted that terrorists were resisting fiercely during the offensive.” Sputnik International, Sept. 18

The Syrians have done this because, as the SDF flag implies, the Kurds and their allies have every intention of busting off a piece of someone else’s country to make up the western part of Greater Kurdistan and the Syrians and their allies have no intention of letting that happen. The Kurds call this “Rojava“. History calls it nation building by force or… a war of aggression.

A top aide to President Bashar al-Assad said on Friday the Syrian government would fight any force, including U.S.-backed forces also battling Islamic State militants, in its drive to recapture the whole of the country. Assad has previously vowed to recapture the whole of Syria.” Reuters, Sept. 15

This recent development sets the stage for a decisive moment in the history of the great game on the Grand Chessboard and it appears the losing side isn’t willing to resign just yet.

We’re not going to be satisfied until we see a strong and stable Syria. And that is not with Assad in place,” US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said at a White House briefing on Friday, when asked whether the US was left behind in international efforts to resolve Syrian crisis. RT Sept 15

American officials have said their main goal in Syria is to fight ISIS, as Washington backs the operations of Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) which includes Kurdish fighters as well as Arab militia groups. The SDF advanced towards Deir ez-Zor from the eastern side of the Euphrates river this week, in an effort to gain control of the city’s eastern outskirts before the government does. RT Sept 15

A number of recent developments might lead one to believe the Deep State is in the process of launching an all out influence offensive with the desired goal being an all out military attack on the SAA and anyone aligned with them in order to defend the gains won by the Obama administration in eastern Syria. This direct conflict with another nation on behalf of the new freedom fighters, the Kurds, would be an all out declaration of war against not only Syria but also against Iran, Turkey, Lebanon and most importantly… Russia. It is also important to note (as I will show in a minute) that we would also quickly find our puppet regime in Iraq turn against us as they have already stated for the record they will not allow “Iraqi Kurdistan” to break off and form a nation of their own and they would know if we attack Syrian to steal part of that country, their piece is next to fall.

“Iraqi Vice President Nouri al-Maliki has denounced a planned Kurdish independence referendum in northern Iraq, warning that Baghdad would not tolerate the establishment of “a second Israel,” after the occupying regime became the only entity to support the so-called plebiscite.Press TV, Sept. 18

For as long as the U.S., Britain, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Israel have been running their regime change via proxy terrorists campaign in Syria, careful researchers have been pointing out they are playing a dangerous game which could ignite a fire in the whole of the Middle East which could then spill all the way into western Europe and possibly even beyond.

Now that the Global War OF Terror we have been waging seems lost in that theater of operation, it seems a devoted faction of the Deep State, in service to the masters of the universe, are willing to take that last, catastrophic step toward total warfare in the region in service to their master plan.

A host of seemingly unrelated events point to an effort by these zealots to coerce the current president into taking that first, dire step toward war and in order to see them for what they are, all you have to do is open your eyes if but a little.

Syria’s al-Qaeda affiliate escapes from Canada’s terror list

by Evan Dyer, CBC

The Syrian branch of al-Qaeda, currently calling itself Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), has succeeded in getting itself off Canada’s list of designated terrorist entities following its latest identity shift.

That complicates the task of prosecuting Canadians who travel to join the group, send it money or propagandize on its behalf.

It also illustrates the pitfalls of Canada following the lead of the U.S. in designating terror groups…

Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (the Organization for Conquest in the Levant) began life as an expeditionary force called Jabhat al-Nusra (the Support Front), despatched into Syria in 2011 by the leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, now “caliph” of the Islamic State (ISIS). Jabhat al-Nusra was led by Syrian jihadist Abu Mohammad al-Jawlani.

The United States put the group on its terrorist list in 2012, as the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda, and Canada followed suit.

Al-Baghdadi soon crossed into Syria himself, renouncing his allegiance to al-Qaeda and founding ISIS in April 2013…
