Syria airstrike: Russia warns US, allies of ‘consequences’.

Russia’s Ambassador in Washington DC warned the USA and its allies there will be “consequences” in the wake of the US, UK and French (FUKUS axis)  coordinated air strikes on Syria.

Russia feels threatened by the US decision to strike Syrian targets in retaliation for the alleged chemical attack in Douma on April 7, which Moscow believes was staged by western agents as justification for entry into Syria’s civil war just as the Assad regime’s forces, supported by troops from Iran were mopping up the last pockets of resistance from ISIS and Al Nusra front rebels.

“A pre-designed scenario is being implemented. Again, we are being threatened. We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences,” Anatoly Antonov said in a statement on Friday night. “All responsibility for them rests with Washington, London and Paris.”

Despite that and previous unequivocal warnings, US President Donald Trump, Prime Minister Teresa May and France’s President Macron ordered their nations’ forces to strike military targets in Syria on Friday night. The Russian military operating in Syria was not notified in advance about the American targets, General Joseph Dunford, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told reporters after the attacks.

The US “specifically identified” targets to “mitigate the risk of Russian forces being involved,” Dunford said. “We used the normal deconfliction channel to deconflict airspace. We did not coordinate targets.”

While Trump said that the purpose of the US actions is to “establish a strong deterrent against the production, spread, and use of chemical weapons,” Antonov reminded that “the US – the possessor of the biggest arsenal of chemical weapons – has no moral right to blame other countries.”‘

Germany, Italy Refuse To Join Deep State’s Syria Regime Change Coalition

As madness grips most members of NATO, with our own British Prime Minister Theresa May trying to out – Trump Trump in her displays of gung ho egomania, two nations at least are taking a more rational view. Italy and Germany have said they will not be involved in, or even support airstrikes on Syria.
Understandable, especially in the case of Germany which is right in the firing line if Putin decides to take out a few East Coast townships, and also relies on Russia for 40% of its energy needs, enough to bring the country to a standstill if the supply is suddenly switched off.

Italy is less dependent on Russian oil and gas, but does export quite a lot of agricultural produce to Russia.

Germany, understanding that involvement in any strike on Syria would further jeopardize its relationship with the Kremlin, stated unequivocally that it will not join any military strikes against Syria in response to the alleged chemical gas attack on an opposition enclave which Russia claims was a “white helmet” false flag, but takes a more diplomatic line by expressing support for Western efforts to show the use of chemical weapons is unacceptable, Chancellor Angela Merkel said.

Angela Merkel said after meeting Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen in Berlin. “We support everything that is being done to show that the use of chemical weapons is not acceptable.”

Which is a less direct way of saying “we are happy to do anything except whatever puts us on Putin’s black list.”

Meanwhile in Dublin, Germany’s new Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said Germany expects to be consulted before any Western allies conduct an attack on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces as the allies must be united on the matter.

Earlier, Merkel spoke with French President Emmanuel Macron about the suspected gas attack and expressed her concern that the international community’s ability to ban chemical weapons was eroding.” Perhaps this is because of the NATO and the EU’s increasing belligerence in international affairs. For example, the gramdmotherfucker Macron, in an outburst reminiscent of America’s cocksucker president Barack Obama’s reaction to previous reports of gas attacks yesterday claimed he had irrefutable proof that the Assad regime and Russia were responsible for this latest chemical attack, but offered no evidence to back up his claim.

Amusingly, instead of focusing on the nature of the schism between Germany and its allies, Europe’s most powerful nation chose to deflect attention to the lack of a coherent European policy on the matter: an easy excuse in a continent in which there is virtually no cohesion on any matter:

Roettgen urged the European Union to develop a policy for the Middle East as a whole,

Moments after Germany said would not participate any Syrian strikes, Italy too said it took would refuse to participate in any military action against Russia or Assad.

However, just like Germany the Italians announced they would supply logistical support to any military operation against the Assad regime. Which means that the two nations that will lead the attack on Syria when it inevitable comes, whether with or without the US, will be the UK, whose subs are already on location off the coast of Syria, and France, whose slimeball president is just itching to suck up to the Americans.

Prince Mohammed bin Salman (Mad Mo) looks mightily pleased with himself afer shafting young King Felipe of Spain up the arse on his whistle stop tour of Europe. (image source: Yahoo news)

Everyone in the world (well everyone with more tits or testicles than braun cells,) knows that Assad is not stupid (educated in Britain he is a doctor and ophthalmologist) so why would he decide to gas women and children and turn the entire world against him, when he has won the war against Islamic extremism and only has to mop up a few pockets of resistance. Launching a chemical weapons strike just for laughs, only days after Trump announced a US pullout from Syria is something Obama might have done after snorting a few lines of Pablo Escobar’s Special, but to a sane person it would be unthinkable.

So, as we are all quite sure the attack, if there was actually an attack because they only reports we have come from organisations linked to ISIS / Al Nusra, was a false flag, why are the crazy neocons in Washington pushing Trump to war?

Might it be something to do with this?

A few days ago China launched a rival reserve currency to The Petrodollar

The gold backed Yuan, which they, and Russia, Iran, Turkey, India and many more South East Asian and Pacific nations, have vowed to use to sell/purchase oil (amongst other things).

The last two nations that tried to introduce a currency to compete against the petrodollar were Libya and Iraq. Unfortunately for supports of the U.S. global hegemony project, China and Russia are a different proposition than Libya and Iraq.

The US and its allies Saudi Arabia need a pipeline through Syria more than ever now, especially if they are to compete for European gas/oil markets (presently controlled by Russia and their pipeline) and the Chinese Yuan.

Significantly, Saudis crown prince Mohammed bin Salman (Mad Mo) just wrapped up a US PR tour and is now in France. Western leaders and mainstream media “liberals” are creaming in their pants over the Saudi leader, hailing him as a visionary, renaissance man, conveniently forgetting that Mad Mo has been the driving force behind Saudi Arabia’s U.S. backed war on Yemen.

They have, since Obama stated that the U.S. prority in Syria was not to defeat the ISIS terror army but to remove ‘the brutal dictator’ Assad (and put a far more brutal theocracy in his place) failed to report fully or accurately on how the Saudi war machine has been slaughtering Yemeni citizens by the thousands, or how his Saudi dictatorship is one of the most repressive regimes in the world.

Also forgotten is that Saudi Arabia supported Al Qaeda during the 9/11 terrorist attack, and have admitted funding and training al Qaeda and ISIS terrorists in Syria, terrorists that make their way to Europe, and eventually run over innocent people with cars and trucks.

No matter, Mad Mo (and his billions in cash) has the ear of Trump and Frances Grandmotherfucker Macron, now both the US and France are giddy about attacking Syria. Forget the moralising, as always it’s really about money and power.

Petro-yuan: China To Launch Renminbi As Reserve Currency & Take Down Petro-dollar

China’s launch of a Yuan-backed oil futures market could shatter the US dollar dominance of the crude oil market, a goal China and Russia, with support from, Iran, have been working towards for at least five years. The US dollar will not give up the top spot easily however so we can expect interesting times ahead for business and trade.

The long awaited yuan-backed crude oil futures market was launched at the end of last month in Shanghai. China is the world’s biggest oil consumer, with eyes on rival benchmarks Brent and WTI as well as the US currency. Beijing sees the US dollar dominated oil market as standing in the way of it’s becoming the world’s largest economy.

Trading of the new oil futures contracts for September settlement started on the Shanghai International Energy Exchange at 440.20 yuan ($69.70) per barrel, reports Chinese daily the South China Morning Post. Some 18,540 lots have reportedly been sold and purchased so far.

“The question number one is whether China will be able to make the oil market its demand market, and not the oil supply market traded in dollars, which it is now,” Vladimir Rozhankovsky, Global FX Investment analyst comented, according to geopolitics.co. China has recently overtaken the US as the world’s number one oil buyer.

If the world trade enters into a death spiral of reciprocal economic sanctions, keeping oil trade in dollars will be a matter of strategic importance, or a matter of survival for the US,” the analyst added, referring to the recent spate of tit for tat export tariffs imposed by China and the USA.

As a result of these, Washington can deliberately undermine the image of the petro-yuan by attacking Chinese stock, which could result in the devaluation of the yuan, making Chinese oil futures less attractive, Rozhankovsky said. However, the US has some major disadvantages on which the petro-yuan can capitalize. First, the US dollar is still overvalued in currency markets, making domestic oil production very expensive. Second, while Russia and Iran have overland pipelines, the United States does not have transatlantic pipelines to its major markeys in Europe, and tankers are costly and highly risky, the analyst added.

“The trade war between the US and China has already begun. China has plans to promote the renminbi as a reserve currency and there is no better move than to purchase raw materials in its national currency. It can save money on the currency conversion and become less dependent on the US dollar,” Stanislav Werner, head of the analytical department of Dominion, commented in whatreallyhappened.com

Werner notes that the oil market is worth $14 trillion at the moment, and is bigger than the Chinese economy. “The first trading sessions were volatile, but this is a typical story for new financial instruments. The US has a serious reason to get nervous, because in many ways the hegemony of the US dollar came from oil trading in dollars,” he said.

China’ s Low Key Launch Of Its Challenge To Petrodollar Supremacy

petrodollar
Goodbye petrodollar, hello petroyuan? 

We have been blogging and commenting for several years on moves by Russia, China and Iran to replace the US dollar as the global reserve currency, or at least to create a serious rival to the dollar hegemony. There can be no greater threat to the established order (or to the global banking cartel’s dreamed of New World Order,) than the emergence of a serious rival to the dollar. As economic game-changers go there is none bigger or more disruptive than a yuan-denominated settlement system for crude oil contracts, especially when set it is set up up by the largest importer of crude on the planet and the second largest exporter of hydrocarbons.

Given the level of U.S. provocations of Russia and China over the past few years and the recent return to cold war conditions with a new arms race on the cards, perhaps we ought to be happy that the Russians and Chinese seem to prefer currency wars to shooting wars as both have demonstrated they have formidable arsenals of advanced weapons and it is far from certain the U.S.A. and NATO could take on either, let alone both simultaneously.

And yet Beijing’s strategy seems to be a softly softly approach. Oil trades are already being conducted in petro-yuan at the Shanghai International Energy Exchange is on hold. This may be related to US sabre rattling and concern that the US deep state, having no economic response to the move may react rashly if presented with a fait accompli. Thus the fact that China and its partners chose to play down the official launch of the new settlement system is understandable. There was room for some euphoria following the launch, Brent Crude soared to $71 a barrel for the first time since 2015. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) reached the highest level in three years at $66.55 a barrel; then retreated to $65.53.

The launch also signalled a series of “firsts” for China’s trade links with the west, including the first opportunity for overseas investors to access a Chinese commodity market. Significantly, US dollars will be accepted as deposit and for settlement. In the near future, a basket of currencies will also be accepted as deposit. This is entirely in line with the Sino – Russian policy of moving their economic partners towards conducting trades in the currency of the vendor nation.

Will the launch of the petro-yuan be a deathblow to the petrodollar and U.S. economic dominance and the birth of a new era in trade relations? It will but the change is likely to take years rather than weeks. Many variables have to be considered, the most important being China’s capacity to manipulate and eventually dominate the global oil market.

Qatar Balks At Saudi Ultimatum That Would Force It To Surrender Sovereignty

Immediately after Saudi Arabia and its Gulf State client shiekdoms released an ultimatum containing 13 demands to which Qatar must agree as a precondition for the resumption of diplomatic ties and an end of the Saudi economic and naval blockade, the tiny kingdom on the Persian Gulf described the ultimatum as neither “reasonable” nor “realistic”, and claimed it would infringe on Qatar’s sovereignty. 

“This list of demands confirms what Qatar has said from the beginning – the illegal blockade has nothing to do with combating terrorism, it is about limiting Qatar’s sovereignty, and outsourcing our foreign policy” said  Sheikh Saif Al Thani, of Qatar’s official communications office, according to Bloomberg.

The full list contained demands  such as reducing Qatar’s diplomatic representation in Iran, cancelling the Turkish military base being established there (Turkey has already balked at the threat), severing ties with terrorist organizations, shutting down Al Jazeera and all affiliated channels, and so on. The demands are explicitly aimed at dismantling Qatar’s two-decade-old interventionist foreign policy, which has reflected the clout generated by its vast natural gas and oil wealth but incensed conservative Arab peers over its alleged support for extremist groups they regard as threats to their dynastic rule.

Al Thani dismissed the demands and said the list is “under review”, but only “out of respect for our brothers in Kuwait” whose emissary delivered the Saudi demands on Friday (22 June). Al Thani said that the demands do not meet the US and UK criteria for “reasonable and realistic measures.”

Meanwhile Qatar’s Foreign Ministry said it will soon issue an official response, one which we doubt Saudi Arabia will like as the bid/ask in the early stage of the negotiations is being established. 

“The State of Qatar is currently studying this paper, the demands contained therein and the foundations on which they were based, in order to prepare an appropriate response,” the ministry told Channel News Asia.

On Friday, Qatar’s news outlet Al Jazeera responded to Saudi demands that it be shut down as part of the “renormalization” process. “We in the network believe that any call for closing down Al Jazeera is nothing but an attempt to silence the freedom of expression in the region and to suppress people’s right to information,” Al Jazeera said in a statement.

“By accepting those demands and conditions Qatar will be subject to international accountability and violating its commitments regarding human rights conventions,” Qatar’s National Human Rights Committee said in a statement cited by Reuters.

Meanwhile, a senior United Arab Emirates official told Reuters what would happen if Qatar refused to comply with the Arab ultimatum, saying there would be a “parting of ways.”

“The alternative is not escalation, the alternative is parting of ways, because it is very difficult for us to maintain a collective grouping,” UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash told reporters.

Gargash urged Qatar to meet the demands. “It would be wiser that [Qatar] deal seriously with the demands and concerns of the neighbors or a divorce will take place,” Anwar Gargash said on Twitter in Arabic, adding, that “the crisis is profound.”


UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash

In other words, another attempt at a backdoor deal orchestrated by Saudi Arabia failed because someone leaked something, only this time it didn’t involve Trump being a KGB secret agent.

Gargash said that if Qatar fails to comply within the 10-day timeline set out in the ultimatum, it will be isolated. But he did not make clear what more could be done since the four Arab nations have already cut diplomatic relations with Doha and severed most commercial ties.

Despite verbal assurances that there will be no further escalation, Qatar is preparing for the worst, as two contingents of Turkish troops with columns of armored vehicles have arrived in Doha since the worst crisis among Gulf Arab states for years erupted on June 5.

The uncompromising positions adopted by both sides leave little prospect for a quick end to the crisis. The sanctions have disrupted Qatar’s main import routes by land from Saudi Arabia and by sea from big container ships docked in the United Arab Emirates. But Qatar so far has avoided economic collapse by quickly finding alternative channels (mainly through Iran which made the Saudis even more pissed off) and says its huge financial reserves will meet any challenges.

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.

Is The World Turning Against The New World Order Elitists
2015 looked like being a good year for the ‘New World Order’, the year the banksters and international psychopaths succeeded in provoking a global conflict as the final step to the establishment of a global government. Thanks largely to Vladimir Putin, and in a small part to the incessant questioning by new media we know know which NATO country has been acting as middle man for the powers that sponsor regime change, where the money that keeps the ISIS show on the road is coming from, and who our real enemies are …

ISIS: Know Your Enemy – Who Of Those We Think Are On Our Side Is Helping ISIS

Here at last is the story behind the shooting down of a Russian military jet by Turkey’s air force. It will also answer questions about how ISIS can afford all those Toyota pick up trucks, but it is not pleasant reading for people in the west who just want to hear that the good guys are winning

Qatar Close To Running Out Of Dollars?

Let’s be honest, the Saudi-led campaign to starve Qatar’s citizens of food and businesses of trade was doomed from the start, while the Saudi’s my feel they can rely on big bully boy best mate the USA to deter anybody thinking of helping Qatar, with both Turkey and Iran volunteering to provide food and other essentials to the tiny Gulf nation while <a href=”http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-06-12/bypass-food-embargo-qatar-will-pay-8-million-airlift-4000-cows”>local entrepreneurs have started a cow paradropping campaign</a> to beat the blockade on milk imports,&nbsp; the key factor is what will Russia’s President Putin do.

Putin has little time for the Saudis, is fed up of American meddling in the middle east, and is a strong ally of both Iran, the real target of the Saudi move against Qatar, and of Syria’s President Assad. And Putin is well aware of the role the USA and Saudi Arabia have played in sponsoring the iSIS / Al Nusra war in Syria. In fact, right up to the end of his failed presidency Barack Hussein Obama was telling the world America’s priority in Syria was not to defeat the terrorists of ISIS but to remove Assad and open the way for the Saudis to install a Muslim theocracy that would support its own extreme version of Islam.

A new problem has now emerged in Qatar, the world’s biggest source of natural gas: the financial system is running out of dollars. Bloomberg reports that several Qatari banks have boosted interest rates on dollar deposits to shore up liquidity as the Saudi-led campaign to isolate the gas-rich state intensifies.
&nbsp;&nbsp;
Adding to concerns of a monetary blockade, Bloomberg also reports that some banks in neighboring countries have been offloading investments in Qatar amid concerns of a widening of the blockade.

Qatar is the world’s wealthiest nation on a GDP/capita basis and is well able to withstand a prolonged financial siege, and defend its currency and economy. Finance Minister Ali Shareef Al Emadi&nbsp; played down the impact of the crisis on the country, in an interview with CNBC on Sunday (11 June) saying the plunge in Qatari assets last week was a “normal” reaction to the standoff.

Finally, the question nobody dares ask out loud is, “Where does Russian president Vladimir Puting stand on all this. Well aware of the US role in this latest crisis and the real reasons behind it (reported <a href=”https://originalboggartblog.wordpress.com/2017/06/10/germany-foreign-minister-warns-qatar-crisis-could-lead-to-war-as-qatar-asks-moscow-for-support/&#8221; target=”_blank”>HERE</a> and <a href=”https://originalboggartblog.wordpress.com/2017/06/11/irans-warships-sail-to-oman-as-the-qatar-crisis-deepens/&#8221; target=”_blank”>HERE</a>) Puting has said the US has “got a false sense that it is able to do everything without any consequences,” in particular after the Soviet Union’s collapse.

“In such a situation, a man or a country begins to make mistakes… Putin said. The state begins to function ineffectively. One mistake follows another. That is the trap in which, as I believe, the United States got caught into,” Putin reflected during a press conference.<strong><em>

“I believe that if you think you are the only world power, trying to impose on the whole nation the idea of their exclusiveness, this creates an imperialistic mentality in society, which in turn requires an adequate foreign policy expected by society. And the country’s leaders are forced to follow this logic. And in practice this might go contrary to the interest of the Americans…. It demonstrates it’s impossible to control everything.”</em></strong>

 

<strong><em>&nbsp;</em></strong>

Which some might interpret as a warning to the USA to stay out of the middle east and mind its own business.

Treasure “Trove” Of ISIS Documents Detail Secret Oil Trade With Turkey
We detail the route by which ISIS transports illegal, undocumented crude to Turkey via Zakho-based smugglers and how that crude ends up at Ceyhan where tanker rates seem to mysteriously spike around ISIS-related oil events.

Leaked Transcripts Prove ISIS-Turkey Link
Turkey had been widely criticized for not doing enough to assist in the fight against ISIS. In fact, we have published here a lot of evidence to suggest that Ankara was cooperating with the group by ensuring funds through illegal oil trades and acting as a conduit for US supplied weapons. Turkey’s links with ISIS are so undeniable and well documented now, even mainstream media have had to start reporting this news …
