RUSSIA CONNECTS

The West, being overtaken by China & those allied with it has repeatedly signaled its intent to weaken those rising to threaten its continued ability to be World Control HQ.

The East has largely until recently hoped for a change of heart & a return to sanity.
RUSSIA CONNECTS

The East doesn't wish conflict, it wants stability, strong relationships, security & trade.

The West has shown time after time its malign intention, to disrupt & destabilize, creating chaos, organizing provocations, sanctioning, sabotaging, ever threatening war.
RUSSIA CONNECTS

Color revolutions have become the West’s favored means of undermining nations & replacing governments.

The fomented insurrection occurring now in Hong Kong is another example of its cynical attempt to generate chaos with a view to furthering western aims.

Mousa: We are not here today to send messages to the international community or to denounce the crimes that are being committed in full view. The intl community has proven not only that it does not want to hear or see what is happening in #Syria but that it is completely paralyze
Despite that, many Syrians are still carrying, in their minds and hearts, this great revolution and the cause of a people who wanted to get rid of tyranny and faced the whole world to get freedom and decent life
One of our top priorities remains the issue of #detainees. We shall not forget their families and their loved ones who are waiting to meet them or at least know their fate

1/ @JamesMelville Recall the fuss when it turned out Coulson didn't have the right level of security clearance? With Crosby + his "secret" clients + Matthew Elliott etc's "secret" funding how are these dubious ppl, who are at the heart of this mess, security cleared + by whom ?
2/ With so much secrecy, what about conflicts of interest? We know Crosby has a Svengali like hold on Johnson + was advising Vote Leave's Matthew Elliott on strategy in 2011 ! Did he ever get his No 10 security pass ? All advisers + ministers need scrutiny re security levels
3/ LC's Principles of Engagement, produced by Jeremy Heywood were an unsigned, undated joke. Re bullet 3, his staff now bragging in US re links to UK politicians + ability to shape #Brexit Unfettered access since 2005. Then there's #Syria .. @spinwatch opendemocracy.net/en/opendemocra…

The last sub-thread of this 4th roll is about the destruction of the site of Babisqa.
#ancient #Syria #ruins
The expedition of Butler, in the early XX C., mapped the settlement of Babisqa, located near #Aleppo, and N of Mout #Barisha. The archaeological settlement, dated from the II C. B.C. is very close to the Turkish border.

tinyurl.com/y4kqpvno
Originally Babisqa settlement extended for ±7.75 ha, at the heart of which lied the central square, with a sort of Agora used until the 5th-6th C. AD.
The ruins included the last Byzantine basilica of Syria, St. Sergius.

#Yemen:
#Houthis attacked , the largest attack ever since the beginning of the Saudi war on Yemen, with 10 armed drone#SaudiArabia Aramco al-Shaybah oil field and station, with 1 million barrel of oil storage capacity, 10 km south of the border to #AbuDhabi, a message to the #UAE
This is the new #Yemen Rule of Engagement, exposing armed drones capable of hitting targets over 1000 km away from Yemen and in #SaudiArabia land. It is also telling #Abudhabi: we can hit you any time if you don't seek political negotiation in Yemen.

If #Yemen has this kind of armed drones, all #Iran allies have the same in #Lebanon, #Syria, #Iraq and #Palestine.

Iran's enemies are powerful but Iran and its allies are enjoying powerful means to fight back. The US and allies's exclusivity is over.

Authorities in #Gibraltar have released the Iranian supertanker Grace 1, which was seized on July 4 on suspicion it was shipping 2.1m barrels of crude oil to Syria in breach of EU sanctions.
The decision to release the ship was taken hours after the US launched a separate last-minute legal move to detain the vessel.
But Chief Justice Anthony Dudley said that there was no US application currently before the court.

“That’s not before me,” he said. “There are no applications in relation to the US letters of request [for mutual legal assistance].”

I'm no fan of the secular academical approach to #Islamic militantism. We all know who I'm talking about. There're some aspects to it that make it inherently flawed and inconsistent with the reality of #Islam. I'll comment on two of these flaws, but there are many more.
It enforces the idea of nationalism through the use of the term "foreign fighters". This term is foreign (pun intended) to the Islamic worldview, and is the result of the artificial, post-colonial borders dividing the #Muslim world into European-style nation-states.
In the Islamic worldview, a Muslim is symbolically related through membership of the shared religion to any other member of this socio-religious group we call the "ummah" (the Muslim Community). That's the inside group. Those that do not share the religion are obviously not.

Wow Putin is scared. #Russia TV did one of their propaganda “exposes” to discredit @CNN reporter @clarissaward as a spy b/c she’s investigating Kremlin secret Wagner army. She even interviewed a mercenary. Recall 3 well-known Russian journalists were killed investigating Wagner.
.@CNN reporter interviewed a Wagner mercenary—#Russia’s secret private army he says "does anything Putin says" to boost Russian influence & suppress American. Same group that seized #Crimea, operates in #Ukraine, #Syria, #Africa. Kept secret to give Kremlin plausible deniability.
.@CNN reporter found out first hand about KGB #Putin’s #Russia. Doing a story on Kremlin-tied Wagner mercenary private army, @clarissaward was followed, filmed, had a guy go thru her hotel room, and became the subject of a Russian #disinformation attack video calling her a “spy.”

WESTERN DUMBNESS IN DEPTH

Is it ‘dumbness’? Is it Machiavellian? Is it fear? Is it pure evil? Is it group-thought myopia?

Why are western elites using a wrecking ball policy to international relations esp. in relation to Russia & China? What underpins this apparent stupidity?
WESTERN DUMBNESS IN DEPTH

What are the factors underlying attempts by western elites to undermine #China, #Russia, #Iran, #Syria, #Venezuela, #Cuba & #Nicaragua?

What are the emotions involved?

What considerations are believed to be of vital national importance to the West?
WESTERN DUMBNESS IN DEPTH

On the face of it, according to many analysts well versed in geopolitical matters the West is on a suicidal course currently.

China & Russia are not going away. China in particular is not going to lose its growing economic power.

So what is going on?

Shame on DeepState #ForeignPolicy Journal. For Years #Turkey has been hosting 3+ Million #refugees from #Syria (Not like EU concentration camps accepting a few thousands!). They deported a few 1000s without documents & this attack?! - - - foreignpolicy.com/2019/08/08/tur…
An Amazing Example Of Distorted, Spun & Twisted Reporting for “Targeted” Attacks Against #Turkey. #FP should ask #EU & #USA: How many refugees from #Syria Are you willing to host & house in US/EU? And then print the “official response” for all to see!!!!!
Let’s Get The Facts Straight On #Syria Refugees In #Turkey: 1-Millions provided Housing;2- Millions Provided Healthcare; 3- Million+ W/ Work Permits; 4-All Children Provided With Public Education; 5- 10s Of 1000s In #Turkey Universities ...6- With 99% of #Turks Hospitable to Them

Operation East of the #Euphrates:
I’m starting a thread here that I’ll be updating with all the latest information about a possible Turkish military operation in northeastern #Syria. Working on the ground in Northern Syria.
2. To recap: In Northern #Syria Turkey wants a 32-kilometer deep, 460 kilometer long safe zone under Turkish control (as per map).
So far the U.S. hasn’t accepted those terms in negotiations. Map of Turkish proposed safe zone in Northern Syria.
3. #BREAKING: Talks finalized today between Turkish and US officials on establishment of safe zone in northern #Syria.
Turkish, US officials agree northern Syria safe-zone will be a "peace corridor" and agreed on establishment of a joint operations centre as soon as possible.

THE USA: KILLER COUNTRY

The vast majority of North Americans are fine people if sometimes a little insular, uninformed & propagandized by their politicians & mass media. However a significant number have violent tendencies which far too often lead to mass murder.
THE USA: KILLER COUNTRY

This week has seen shocking events occur in the United States. Events which have had all too similar dark echoes in the recent past. Shooters killing people at random, including school children are rarely heard of outside of the USA. Why is that?
THE USA: KILLER COUNTRY

What is there within the everyday culture of the United States that engenders acts of random violence, an intolerant aggressive instinct, an ultra-competitive attitude, delusional thought processes & a willingness to act out hatred?

1. I've been trying to keep up with events in north and east #Syria since 2014, but I concede I've never really understood what the deal was in #Hasakah and for me the reports of operations there taking down #ISIS cells is an interesting development.
2. The maps all show the regime still holding territory east of the city including a hill that looks to me like an intercept station. I have no clue how the #SAA forces there are supplied. The coexistence with #SDF was for me early evidence that #SDF were not a separatist group.
3. What concerns me most is that I believed that the area was more under the regime control than the SDF control and now it appears to have been a hotbed of ISIS cells. That raises a question I addressed years ago and that gained zero traction and that is whether the Regime and
