As the latest distractions, the false flag cyber attack and the completely unsupported allegations from Democrat friendly mainstream media that Donald Trump fired former FBI director James Comey because the president has a sinister closet of Russian skeletons to hide from the public look increasingly risible, the United States’ latest middle east misadventure is another step towards direct military confrontation with Russia in Syria.
This blog and our associate, The Daily Stirrer have always contended that Syria’s civil war was in fact a proxy war engineered by Washington with the aim of humiliating Russia by destroying the regime of Syrian dictator Assad, The Kremlin’s last ally with a Mediterranean coastline.
According to the Telegraph, Syrian government troops are on a direct collision course with Western Special Forces after advancing towards a U.S. training base in eastern Syria over the weekend. Several western journalists reporting from within in Syria have revealed that the US military has been heavily involved in training combat troops from many of the Islamist factions affiliated to Daesh and Al Nusra. Pro-government forces are now closing on al-Tanf, a fortified base for American and British special forces known to have been used to train Syrian rebel groups to fight ISIS near the Iraq border.
The assault is being led on the ground by Iranian forces who are commanding Syrian troops and Lebanese Hezbollah fighters. According to Washington sources, Syria is “assaulting” its own territory whereas U.S. and British troops have a legitimate reason to be there. President Assad of Syria, backed by Vladimir Putin, have on serveral occasions warned the USA that while Russian and Iranian troops are operating in Syria at the request of the legitimate Syrian government, US and British troops are in fact invaders.
Add the fact that before handing over to Donald Trump, President Barack Hussein Obama had stated many times that his administration’s priority in Syria was not to defeat ISIS and other terrorists, but to remove Assad (and presumably install a puppet government loyal to Washington and its allies Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
To make matters more dismal, the Assad loyalists and Iranian elite regiments are also being covered by Russian air power.
According to regional outlet al-Masdar, the aim of the Syrian offensive is to capture the Tanf Border Crossing, which links Baghdad to Damascus. With the prospects of U.S.-backed forces establishing a foothold along the strategic area, opening up the possiblity of an ISIS counter attack from within Iraq, Damascus has made it a priority to reopen the highway and retake the area.
In doing so, Syria will not only establish a vital link to Iraq but will also establish a viable land route to Iran, a strategic ally of the Syrian government.
The offensive is also running in tandem with the Syrian government’s bid to reclaim Deir Ezzor from ISIS, another strategic area because it is home to Syria’s biggest oil deposit.
According to the Telegraph, the U.S. has said it will not tolerate any attack on its base in al-Tanf, but it is still unclear how Western forces will react to the approaching threat. Russia already bombed the area in June 2016, though no injuries to American or British troops were reported.
Over the weekend, al-Masdar reported that 150 British and U.S. troops entered the Syrian battle arena while traveling through this vital crossing. It is unclear how far the United States wants to go in provoking Russia, as directly engaging these troops will put the U.S. in direct conflict with Russia’s air force. What we have seen evidence of in recent weeks however is an insane belief among the Washington elite that a nuclear war with Russia is winnable.
Europe Rejects Obama Doctrine – US Exceptionalism Is Not Acceptable
With a backlash against his efforts to bully Britons into voting to remain in the EU pushing the leave campaign into a narrow lead in opinion polls Obama’s vistit to Europe last week could hardly be described as a success.

The Final Curtain For Hillary’s Presidential Dream
The Obama Administration helped ignite the civil war in Syria as “the best way to help Israel,” a newly-released Hillary Clinton email published by Wikileaks has confirmed. Silly Hilly, then Secretary Of State wrote: “The best way to help Israel deal with Iran’s growing nuclear capability is to help the people of Syria overthrow the regime of Bashar Assad.”
Russia’s Surprise Withdrawal From Syria? “If We Don’t Go Away, We Can’t Come back Again.
There is no doubt that the withdrawal is not quite what it seems to be, but more likely a tactical move by the Russians. The Kremlin feels it has done enough to secure the regime of President Assad, the remnants of the Sunni Muslim Free Syrian Army are no longer capable of mounting a challenge and the Syrians, along with Shi’ite militias in Iraq and Kurdish irregulars, backed by Iranian Republic an Guard troops ought to be capable of dealing with ISIS
Propaganda War: US Officials Working to Keep Russia, Europe at Odds
Speaking to the US Senate Armed Services Committee this month, Breedlove said that ” Russia and the Assad regime are deliberately weaponizing migration from Syria in an attempt to overwhelm European structures and break European resolve.” These irrational remarks, and the mainstream media’s ability to convey them with a straight face, are an indication of a broken system, experts suggest.
Guess Which Political Grouping Wants To Legalise Incest and Necrophilia?
Has the headline sunk in. Yes it says there are people out there who want to legalise incest (brother /sister or parent / child sex) and necrophila (sex with dead people). Puzzled about who would want to legalise such repugnant things? I’ll give you a clue, they aren’t conservatives, libertarians or nationalists.
EU HoldsBack New Regulation For Fear Of Strengthening Brexit Case

Turkey Blames Kurds, Assad For Terrorist Attack, Vows Swift Response
Yesterday came the first terrorist attack on Turkish soil. As this blog predicted President Erdogan of Turkey is blaming the Kurds and President Assad of Syria for yesterday’s bomb blast in the Turkish capital which killed and injured many people.It was predictable would the attack would be blamed on Assad and the Kurds, thus giving the nutter Erdogan an excuse to intensify his actions against Assad and the Kurds
War Is Good, The Obama Worshipping Guardian Says
Alas that all went down the pan in 2008 when the USA elected its first (and probably last) black president. Like American liberals, the hacks at The Guardian could not see past the colour of Obama’s skin and before Obama had even been sworn into office they were declaring him not just the greatest president ever but the greatest human being ever
Road To World War III: Turkey Shells Syria For Second Day As Saudi Warplanes Arrive
The geopolitical world was rocked yesterday when Turkey began shelling Syria’s second largest city, Aleppo, where the Syrian opposition has its back against the wall in the face of an aggressive advance by the forces of President Assad’s government and the Iranian Republican Guard supported, of course, by Russian airstrikes.
US Allies Now Fighting CIA-Backed Terror Groups In Syria
The idea that ISIS has very close links with the USA has gone beyond conspiracy theory, or anti US propaganda, the proof is out there. We have previously reported on the US government’s links to ISIS and revealed the vital role of NATO member Turkey in supporting the terrorists in their campaign which aims to create an Islamic Caliphate stretching from the Mediterranean Sea to the Persian Gulf
Turkey and Sadui Arabia Already Have Troops Fighting In Syria
Even mainstream media has been forced to concede that Turkey and Saudi Arabia are apparently ready to send ground forces to the Syrian battlefield as Assad’s forces, backed by Russian air power and Iranian elite troops but continue to grind down ISIS forces equipped with US made arms and ammunition via Saudi Arabia and funded by Turkey’s illegal oil trade with the terrorist group.
US Military Contractors Happy With Escalating Conflicts in the Middle East
My friends and I have been telling you since the US led coalition invaded Afghanistan in 2001 that the USA’s perpetual war on terror was not about making the public safe and secure but instead about corporate profits and political power.
Crazy Obama Administration Claims It Brought Peace And Security To Syria In 2015
As fighting intensifies between ISIS, The Assad regime and its Russian, Iranian and Chinese allies and the FUKUS axis (France, UK, US) with support from Turkey as that rogue state wages a genocial campaign against the Kurds, the increasingly insane warmongers of the Obama administration is telling US voters they have brought peace and security to Syria Fortunately for Americans with enough nous to question the official narrative, new media is getting the truth out to ever increasing audiences.
Captured ISIS fighter says ‘trained in Turkey, ISIS thinks it’s safer than Syria’
Yet another report from the middle east offering more evidence that Turkey is supporting ISIS in every possible way and acting as the USA’s proxy in the Obama administration’s efforts to depose the regime of President Assad in Syria.
Putin Orders Military To “Boost Strategic Nuclear Forces” As Syria Situation Worsens
The website attracts a predominantly conservative audience so responses in the comment thread were full of Gung ho claims about American exceptionalism and the superiority of American trained soldiers […] It is already known that Pentagon officials have been shocked by the capabilities of Russia’s most advanced aircraft, the SU34 and by the advanced technology used in weaponry of Russian naval vessels now guarding the approaches to Syria’s coast.
ISIS: Know Your Enemy – Who Of Those We Think Are On Our Side Is Helping ISIS
Who is funding ISIS, how has the terror group managed to assemble such a large, well equipped and (apparently) well fed fighting force and been able to wage a two year war against the Assad regime in Syria, the forces of the autonomous Kurds and the army of the Iraqi government, such as it is? Who is facilitating their illegal oil trade that is keeping Islamic State afloat.
