China Sends 1000 Marines To Syrian Coast, Russia Sends More Warships (Video)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Russian Navy spokesmen said Friday that the fleet building up in the Mediterranean can answer any development after the Smetlivy guided missile destroyer set sail for the Mediterranean. DEBKAfile: Since Wednesday, Moscow has reported six warships have been sent out to reinforce the Russian fleet on hand opposite Syria.
Western naval sources reported Friday that a Chinese landing craft, the Jinggangshan (photo below), with a 1,000-strong marine battalion had reached the Red Sea en route for the Mediterranean off Syria.  With a displacement of 19,000 tons, the amphibious warship is 210 meters long and 28 meters wide and can carry helicopters, armored fighting vehicles, boats and landing craft as well as nearly 1,000 soldiers, Jiangxi Daily said.
Why the 1,000 Marines?   Definately a show of force I would think.  Fascinating stuff, I dont thin kChina has ever done something like this before, especially outside its own territorial waters.   It definately shows that China is an emerging world power.   
Meanwhile, Turkey has sent more troops to its border with Syria.

      The Trigger
      The Great Marionette, Barack Hussein Obama WILL pull the trigger because his Manipulators would expose who he really is to the world and allow him to be tried for treason if he did not.
      This is a symbolic attack in a charade that pretends to be a response to a False Flag event as if it were real. This is a prearranged trigger that will set off a well planned war, designed by Lucifer to reduce the world’s population, birth the New World Order and enthrone the Antichrist. It was known by God before the foundation of the earth and announced, in great detail, by the Prophets of old. It is recorded in the BOOK, written thousands of years in advance. It cannot be stopped, the damage and carnage cannot be mitigated and the outcome cannot be changed. Jesus is coming, those who are watching will go with Him, those who are unprepared will stay. The internment camps are ready for the damned, the guillotines are in position and the incinerators fired up. Those who are able will be used to feed the cannons; the rest will be euthanized and disposed of. The Bride of Christ will be at the Marriage Feast of the Lamb; anyone else who wants to go to Heaven will die a horrible death at the only remaining door to Eternal Life. You will be at the table with Jesus or you will be suffering unimaginable atrocities in a Hell on earth. You must decide for yourself; I cannot and God will not force your hand. If you remain, understand; YOU DID THAT!

        lovely narrative but not of this world…go easy with the pot smoking, pal!


      1% of Chinas military will destroy the entire USA navy in the Mediterranean. GO CHINA WE RHE PEOPLE SUPPORT YOU!

    • StavoV

      Gee……the Chinese marines, Russian marines and of course……now the US marines will have to do the amphibious landing thingy bobber. Then they can all sit around, drinking Rice beer, Vodka and PBR’s…….maybe get a volley ball tournie goining, make sand castles, barbeque a couple of goats, or whatever live food those Chinese have in the ships stores and the Russians will supply caviar and the US will provide the BBQ beef and hot dogs. Yes sir’ree bob folks, it is going be quite a show.

      Looks like gw bushes plans for a middle east blow out, are coming home to roost….and not a word out of that little gutter snipe, gw . :cry:

      I don’t care how technologically advanced my nation seems to think it is or how proud they are of they’re toys we tax payers paid for.If Russia and China and other nations join forces against US intervention of Syria there will be nothing to stop them.It all boils down to sheer numbers.Many of our soldiers moral has been crushed as has the faith in our own government after all the false pretexts for wars and all the lies that have been revealed..The stem of checks and balances is a sham.Those who have chose to allied themselves with greed and power have thrown away the Constitution, sold us down river,thrown the average citizen under the bus and want the vast wealth of this region.Its very expensive to extract oil within our own nation.We also have rightfully insisted on safeguards to guarantee that these practices such as fracking aren’t going to pollute water systems etc.Obviously that hasn’t happened.The greed has run rampant and they who benefit simply do not care.What we will probably see is Obama stating his case to the American public on TV but meanwhile the missiles will have already been fired without congressional approval.If this happens and I think there will there will be an outcry in this nation for massive reform of presidential power.We in this nation who love peace and just want to live our normal everyday lives aren’t looking to start WW3.All it will take is a stray bullet or missile that hits a Russian or Chinese ship.All it will take is for Israel to get a wild hair up its butt and lob some missiles without US approval and there goes the whole situation into a major conflict.Should this happen I think (if we aren’t nuked back to the stone age) many Americans will rise up hopefully with the aid of they’re sons and daughters in the military and overthrow this crooked government and hand it back to the people for which it supposedly stands.Ive already shown my disapproval and told my own state representatives to vote no and to urge this president to stand down and let international law guide any such actions against Syria.Its already been revealed that it was the rebels with US and Saudi Arabian support who performed this massacre.The proof has been overwhelming.It either stops or this nation will cease to exist in the very near future.

      The sa,me People that istigated all the Wars and discontent because of power and Money are at it again.
      Only the Russians and Chinese and Koreans have the Guts to stand up against the NWO Jewish Elite. Since you Americans have been bought and paid with their own Monopoly Money you must dance to their Tune.
      At least that is what you phoney leader wants you to do,spill your blood Son and Daughters for the Zionists,rather than to protect your Country from invaders.
      Your Invaders came in the early 40′s and are still there deceiving all of you.
      Can you blame them Germany would not play along but America the Great does… Go figure.
      You all are just Canon Fodder .All in the Name of their Holy Book the Talmud
      Read for yourself and see who hates whom,God knows they hate hios Son and he will not be on their Side:

      Nice graphics, but I do not see any verifiable sources of this information, must be fabricated, hence here is the spread of propaganda.

    • NoHarmNoFoul

      Heres the plan folks
      You get all usa troops in the persian gulf and drop some big bombs and then all our forces are exterminated leaving the russians and chinese a soft southern border to invade our country
      mark these words people wake up!!

      • clockwork angel

    • Anonymous

      A very dangerous pissing contest.

      Anyone that leaves will be seeing as weak.

      Look China is a super power because our Congress and President do not have the courage to bring our jobs back home and stop the corporations from using the slave laboue of Chian for profit on our people. Stop buyng stuff from the Communist Chinese and they will be using a row boat to threaten us next time. The Russians are selling weapons to Syria d making money. They know we do not have the leadership in Washington with enough courage to stand up to them.

      If the President cannot handle this why would anyone want his health care program? He is looking for a ay outta this mess he got himself into by saying he had a Red Line. Ok, now do we stand up to terror and threats folks or do we run away? His only way out is a backless Congress. It is the Russians and the Chinese who want a war not us. They are the new Nazis of the world, we will allow them to scare us off until they come after us and we have our backs up against the wall.
      Congress has to stop companies from using the Chinese for making our stuff and the corporations from selling tha crap here. We fight now or we fight later when they hold all the cards. The Russians and Chinese are controling the UN and we are paying for them to destroy us. They us save lives of the innocent in Syria and send a mesage to the world that we do not run away from a bully and his thug friends (China and Russia).
      The Iranians made the IED weapons that killed our service people in Iraq and Afghanistan. Are we alos going to be a coward to them as well? We have no jobs, we gave our jobs to China, we have no power in the UN we gave that to the Russians. We don’t have mush let, now e will give away our courage to do the right thing and stand up and fight.
