US Attack on Raqqa Updated..

(The Trumpster’s glorious generals are currently bombing the crap out of civilians in Mosul and invading Syria via Raqqa and the whole of the American public is only concerned about how to keep poor people from getting healthcare or how many fabricated ties Rachel Maddow can produce between Trump and Russia. Orwellian? Fascist? Just plain sad and pathetic? You decide)

from Penny for Your Thoughts

First I want to mention the absolute lack of coverage via the msm.. It’s still the Parliament ‘attack’ and the usual Trump circus. And that’s what I find odd? The media is against Trump claim isn’t as believable when they are doing him a big favour by not or barely mentioning this move in Raqqa. So is the Trump  daily circus really a distraction from the expansion of war in the region?

Then there is the spin from the alt media. Claiming it is unclear how the Trump administration plans to “proceed on Syria”?   It is quite clear that the Trump administration plans to do exactly that, proceed. Move forward on Syria- Expand operations. Since that is exactly what has  occurred. They have brought in additional weapons and soldiers– They have blocked SAA and their allies. The US wants the airport to expand operations. And the US has just make Syria’s position at upcoming negotiations in Geneva weaker- While bolstering the YPG/PKK terrorists. There is nothing unclear about the move of Trumps plans to proceed. He just proceeded…

Trump Officials Deny Hitting Mosque in Idlib but Admit it’s Only “50 feet” from the Target They Did Bomb

by Scott Creighton

So far, no Democrat in Congress has voiced a public objection.” hahahahahaha… yeah, because they’re all war-mongering Republicans just like King Donald the Rich.

Oh but RUSSIA!!!!!!! LOOK OVER THERE!!!!!” Rachel “Mad McCarthyite” Maddow

On Mar. 14th of this year, it was announced that King Donald the Rich was unleashing the CIA and the Pentagon in his war on “ISIS”. It was reported that he was going to allow them to make calls and drop bombs without his approval in 6 nations: Yemen, Somalia, Iraq, Syria, Libya and Afghanistan.

Effectively, this frees up the military to target whomever they wish, regardless of the potential of civilian casualties, because now our glorious leader has sufficient plausible deniability.

“The Trump administration is moving ahead with plans to make it easier for the CIA and the military to target terrorists with drone strikes, even if it means tolerating more civilian casualties, U.S. officials told NBC News…

That is part of a broad policy shift underway, U.S. officials say, to grant the CIA and the military more autonomy to target and kill al Qaeda and ISIS militants without presidential sign-off in countries such as Yemen, Somalia, Iraq, Syria, Libya and Afghanistan.” NBC Mar. 14th

By claiming “some of the rules of the Obama administration got in the way of good strikes“, the military is becoming a cartoonish parody of itself. Nothing got in the way of President Drones Alot’s Hellfire missile foreign policy initiative.

What kind of Dr. Strangelove characters do we have in the CIA and military who could possibly think Obama’s wild west bombing policy was too restrictive? The fucker authorized the bombing of a 16-year-old American citizen because he just happened to be the son of another American citizen Obama bombed a year before that. What did they CIA want to do? Bomb their baby-sitter?

Israel Attacked Syrian Military Targets in Syria: One IDF Plane Shot Down Another Damaged

by Scott Creighton

Israel has been illegally attacking the Syrian Arab Army on behalf of the “ISIS” destabilization team for some time now.

“Last month, it was reported that Israeli military aircraft conducted an airstrike on the Syrian government forces stationed in the western countryside of Damascus near the Lebanese border.

Prior to that, Israel bombed a military airport near Damacus. A Syrian official told Sputnik that it was done “to encourage and support terrorists”. Damascus vowed repercussions.” Sputnik

Israel is on record as saying they prefer “ISIS” to Assad. Their military leaders have stated they fear if “ISIS” is defeated then the superpowers will leave and they will be left in a tough situation and so they should do what they can to see that “doesn’t happen”

We also have reports that Israel has been providing military and medical assistance directly to the “moderates” and “ISIS” alike. This is an undeniable fact, one that some media agencies have done their best to spin.

Obama’s Russian Sanctions Have Nothing to Do With Hacking: It’s About Syria, Not the FBI’s “Grizzly Lie” Report

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Putin refuses to retaliate against Obama’s bullshit instigation attempt.

Obama’s “Grizzly Lie” report is indeed a grizzly step toward total war across the Middle East and perhaps the entire world.

Since Russia and Syria were finally able to oust Obama’s “moderate” terrorists from Aleppo and liberate the city from it’s 5-year-long regime change siege, the Russian ambassador to Turkey has been murdered in cold blood, a Russian plane on route to Syria has mysteriously crashed into the Black Sea and now… President Peace Prize has evicted 35 Russian diplomats from U.S. soil and imposed some meaningless sanctions on a number of other Russian agencies and individuals. The claims are that we had nothing to do with the first two incidents and Obama’s actions against Russia are as “retaliation” against their supposed efforts at influencing our elections here in the states.

Of course, our intelligence agencies can’t very well take credit for killing ambassadors anymore than they can admit downing planes (Flight MH17 comes to mind). Wars have started for less and CIA Directors have been fired for meddling like this in the past (Bay of Pigs?). Not very often, but it has been done.

By the same token, President Obama can’t be seen as punishing Russia for driving al-Qaeda from eastern Aleppo. There’s that whole “providing aid and comfort” law to think about.

But the truth is there if you read a little between the lines… or if you just bother to actually read the lines instead of just listening to the lying talking heads giving their spin jobs on the MSM.

Mr. Obama said, and added that the United States acted after “repeated private and public warnings that we have issued to the Russian government, and are a necessary and appropriate response to efforts to harm U.S. interests in violation of established international norms of behavior.” New York Times

The expulsion of the 35 RussiansIt was unclear if they were involved in the hacking.”

closing of two waterfront estatesofficials declined to say whether they were specifically used in the election-related hacks.” New York Times

If they say it’s “unclear” if those expelled from the U.S. were involved in the hacking, that’s spinspeak for “they were not involved in the hacking

There have been no warnings coming from the United States to Russia about staying out of our election process. The warnings President Obama is speaking of were regarding staying out of Syria and out of the way of our “national interests” over there.

Like the president, the Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, avoided getting his message muddied up in spinspeak as well. He made it quite clear yesterday that the sanctions and expulsions had nothing to do with hacking and everything to do with Russia interfering with our “national interests” abroad.

Russia does not share America’s interests. In fact, it has consistently sought to undermine them, sowing dangerous instability around the world. While today’s action by the administration is overdue, it is an appropriate way to end eight years of failed policy with Russia” Mediaite

Off the top of my head I imagine Ryan was speaking about Syria, Ukraine and BRICS but there could be other examples.

In Syria, Russia helped stop our regime change operation that intended to bring along with it the Qatar-Turkey pipeline and the creation of the western quarter of Greater Kurdistan.

In Ukraine our regime change operation took place immediately after the Ukrainian people decided they wanted no part of the European Union and the new IMF loans that came along with the deal.

And in regards to the BRICS nations… well, that speaks for itself.

And there are the interests of our neoliberal and Likudnik friends in London and Tel Aviv to think about as well.

These are the “national interests” Paul Ryan and President Obama speak of. They wont specify what they are because Americans are not likely to want to charge into global war over oil and banking hegemony since it’s their loved ones who will be fighting it, not Ryan’s or Obama’s. In fact, Sec. Kerry just lamented recently that it’s a “problem” that Americans are getting tired of sending their kids off to fight and die in these wars. You think I’m kidding?

And a lot of Americans don’t believe we should be fighting and sending young Americans over to die in another country. That’s the problem.” Sec. of State John Kerry

That’s the problem. We’re tired of sending our children to fight and die in other countries for the lies of corrupt people and the profits of our “national interests”. That, according to the Secretary of State in the Obama regime, is “the problem”.

Gee. I guess they need more motivation, huh? Lucky Larry been buying anymore buildings recently?
