US, Russia on Brink of Military Showdown in Syria

US, Russia on brink of military showdown in Syria

There is a sense in Washington and Moscow alike that a military showdown between the US and Russia is inevitable – direct this time, not through proxies, like the downing of a Russian warplane by Turkish jets last year. When the big powers are in direct confrontation, minor players step aside and run for cover.

When President Barack Obama Friday, Sept. 30 attended the funeral in Jerusalem of the Israeli leader Shimon Peres, he must have realized he was only 514km as the crow flies from Aleppo, the raging crux of the escalating big-power conflict.

The moment after the ceremonies ended the president and his party, including Secretary of State John Kerry and his security adviser Susan Rice, made haste to head back to Washington to navigate the crisis.
The first step toward a direct showdown was taken by the United States.

By now, it is no secret in Moscow, or indeed in any Middle East capital, that the American A-10 air strike of Sept. 17 against a Syrian military position at Jebel Tudar in the Deir ez-Zour region of eastern Syria was intentional, not accidental, as originally claimed. Scores of Syrian soldiers died in the attack.

The fact that President Obama instituted a secret inquiry to discover which link in the American chain of command ordered the attack pointed to his suspicion that a high-up in the Pentagon or possibly the CIA, had ordered the air strike, in order to sabotage the US-Russian military cooperation deal in Syria, which Secretary Kerry obtained after long and arduous toil.

The concessions he made to Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov in those negotiations, especially his consent for extensive sharing of intelligence, were found totally unacceptable in the US Defense Department, its military and intelligence community.

The Russian-Syrian reprisal came two days after the A-10 strike. On Sept. 19, an emergency aid convoy was obliterated on its way to the desperate population of Aleppo. Moscow and Damascus denied responsibility for the deadly bombardment, but no other air force was present in the sky over the embattled city.

On the ground, meanwhile, an unbridled onslaught on rebel-held eastern Aleppo was launched Wednesday by the Russians, Syria, Hizballah and pro-Iranian Shiite militias under the command of Iranian Revolutionary Guards officers.

The fall of Aleppo, Syria’s second city after Damascus, would give Bashar Assad his most resounding victory in the nearly six-year civil war against his regime.

On Sept. 29, Kerry threatened Moscow that “the United States would suspend plans to coordinate anti-Islamic State counter-terrorism efforts if Moscow does not stop attacking Aleppo.”

Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov answered with a sneering: “Once again there was a certain emotional breakdown yesterday against the backdrop of the Obama administration’s unwillingness to fulfill its part of the agreements.”

This was a strong hint of the knowledge in the Kremlin that someone in the US administration was holding out against the implementation in full of the cooperation deal agreed upon and was therefore responsible for its breakdown.

The United States is left with two options:

Either stand idly by in the face of the Russian-Syrian-Iranian onslaught on Aleppo, or shelve the coordination arrangements for US and Russian air operations in Syria, with the inevitable risk of a clash in the air space of Syria or over the eastern Mediterranean.

[Zurich Times] What is being reported here by an Israeli website known for its links to the Israeli Intelligence Community is that the Obama Administration is trying to find out who authorized the bombing in Syria that killed 62 Syrian Army soliders.

This fiasco is the current status of the Obama Administration if you can believe it or not. Humanity is on the brink of global nuclear war and nobody in the Obama Administration knows who is issuing the orders to the bombers!

  • New Yorkers and Russians seem to have a bit more sceptical view what comes to Secretary of State John Kerry’s trustworthines and most likely have limited understanding towards Obama’s alleged inquirys of what went wrong. Shenanigans of the Washington establishment are all out on the table for everyone to see. :shock:

  • The US has no legal basis to be in Syria, and it is none of our business. Get our people out of there now!

  • Obama probably won’t ever find the general who issued the order to attack the Syrians. Putin is so far ahead of him in finding the culprit, he’s already dealt with the problem via a Kalibre missile or two. The order probably originated in the recently deceased anti-ISIS command center. A note to the learned author, there is no proof Russia had air assets in the vicinity of the aid convoy. The US did admit to having a drone in the area. They arm those don’t they?


    One day they woke up, and decided to become Jews, but they did not had any interest in Talmud.
    This tribe was stronger than the biggest force in that time (Muslims). After they invaded Poland, and after Europe.
    They organised Bolshevik revolution, and French revolution, and after that they escaped to Amerika, and formed USA.
    White Zionists with no any relation to real Jews. They financed Hitler, because Zionists were in coalition with the Social Democrats of Hitler’s party. Also they infiltrated Hitler’s army, and organised Poland pentagon of satanic trap for human souls. explained that (but the site is erased recently).
    They infitrated Vatican too:

    So who are they?
    They are humans that have reptilian souls incarnated from Kazharian vortex.

    NATO is theirs!

    ISIS is theirs!

    All evil is theirs!

    So after all this they will destroy USA like superpower, because they making new Lemuria (israel) that should be a new world superpower!

    To dominate all over the world economically, and politically.
    So nothing connected with real jews.

  • Russia wants an indpendant investigation into the attack on the aid convoy which looks like yet another false flag attack and should put boots on the ground instead of just using bombers.

    ISIS Are using human shelds in Allepo so the cost in blood is going to be high but you can blame the americans for that one and if any russia jets are shot down with MANPADS sent via Saudi Arabia to ISIS then our head chopping friends in SA are going to get a kicking.

    The bear needs to bear it’s teeth and if the yanks are so keen to fight ISIS then let them fight them in Iraq or Libya

  • When Damascus is turned to rubble then you will know the end is soon and world war111 is we’ll under way. This was written long long ago so many watchmen know what to look for.

    • b4

      yeah man–it is so amazing that this happening-damascus is the key–iserali and usa troops are massing as we write–damascus seems to be their goal

      • Following the script …….Damascus to be destroyed..After God vanquishes Babylon…..

        THE GOAL…….is the CORPUS SEPERATUM…..a new “International Zone” of Jerusalem.

        This whole thing is a sideshow to the real agenda. They cant just walk in & destroy the Dome.

        but it could be a victim of “Colateral Damage” of the “rebels” driven from Syria :cry:

  • Where is the so called United Nations for not doing anything about the uSA being in Syria? Proving once again the United Nations is nothing more then a major tool for Satan, and the USA and IsraHell.

  • The HEAD GLOBALISTS, are smart operators, own the MSM and know how to get the sheep on side.

    When under scrutiny they change subject, to take our minds off real issues. Can we call it a smoke screen ?

    Allow ourselves the three sides to every story, mine, yours and then the truth.

    The Truth will melt all differences, in finding peace on earth. SO BE IT
