The Russian government has relied on responsible, non-provocative responses. Russia has taken the diplomatic approach, relying on European governments coming to their senses, realizing that their national interests diverge from Washington’s, and ceasing to enable Washington’s hegemonic policy. Russia’s policy has failed. To repeat, Russia’s low key, responsible responses have been used by Washington to paint Russia as a paper tiger that no one needs to fear.

We are left with the paradox that Russia’s determination to avoid war is leading directly to war.

Whether or not the Russian media, Russian people, and the entirety of the Russian government understand this, it must be obvious to the Russian military. All that Russian military leaders need to do is to look at the composition of the forces sent by NATO to “combat ISIS.” As George Abert notes, the American, French, and British aircraft that have been deployed are jet fighters whose purpose is air-to-air combat, not ground attack. The jet fighters are not deployed to attack ISIS on the ground, but to threaten the Russian fighter-bombers that are attacking ISIS ground targets.

There is no doubt that Washington is driving the world toward Armageddon, and Europe is the enabler. Washington’s bought-and-paid-for-puppets in Germany, France, and UK are either stupid, unconcerned, or powerless to escape from Washington’s grip. Unless Russia can wake up Europe, war is inevitable.

Have the totally evil, dumb***** neocon warmongers who control the US government taught Putin that war is inevitable?

http://www.globalresearch.ca/us-racing-recklessly-toward-world-war-iii/5494920">http://www.globalresearch.ca/us-racing-recklessly-toward-world-war-iii/5494920


Once in motion, things have a momentum of their own, heading toward what may be unstoppable. Washington’s grand strategy calls for replacing all independent governments with Western-controlled ones – mainly Russia and China, the main obstacles to achieving its hegemonic objectives.

Middle East tinderbox conditions rage, Washington determined to achieve regional control, waging one war of aggression after another, endless ones in multiple theaters , challenging Russia recklessly.

http://www.veteranstoday.com/2015/12/10/mccain-and-graham-100000-troops-needed-in-iraq-to-defeat-terrorists-we-supported/

The US is to send some 10,000 troops to Iraq to provide support for a 90,000-strong force from the Gulf states, a leading Iraqi opposition MP has warned. The politician said the plan was announced to the Iraqi government during a visit by US Senator John McCain.
 During a meeting in Baghdad on November 27, McCain told Prime Minister Haider Abadi and a number of senior Iraqi cabinet and military officials that the decision was ‘non-negotiable’, claimed Hanan Fatlawi, the head of the opposition Irada Movement.

“A hundred thousand foreign troops, including 90,000 from Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Qatar and Jordan, and 10,000 troops from America will be deployed in western regions of Iraq,” she wrote on her Facebook page.

She added that the Iraqi prime minister protested the plan, but was told that “the decision has already been taken.”

Turkey is calling on Russia for calm, but its patience is not unlimited, Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said on Friday.

In a live interview on NTV, Çavuşoğlu also said that the recent additional deployment of troops to Iraq was made after an increase in the security threat.

https://www.rt.com/news/325539-iraq-turkey-invasion-erdogan/">https://www.rt.com/news/325539-iraq-turkey-invasion-erdogan/

The withdrawal of Turkish troops from Iraq is out of question, Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdogan said, promising to “cooperate” on the issue with the US-led anti-ISIS coalition. Baghdad has condemned the “invasion” as a breach of international law.

“Our servicemen went to Iraq as instructors, their mission is limited to training,” Erdogan claimed during a news conference in the Turkish capital, Ankara.

“It is out of the question, at present, that Turkey will pull out its military from Iraq,” he stressed.

The Turkish leader made no mention of possible talks with Iraqi authorities to resolve the controversy. Commenting on the United Nations Security Council’s failure to produce any statement on the incident as per Russia’s request, Erdogan said that Turkey “will follow the process” but “has chosen to cooperate with the international coalition.”

A possible scenario will be an "act of terror" in Saudi Arabia (organized by Saudi Arabia) blamed on IS. That provides the Gulf States to go into Iraq (and next step will be Syria) to go after IS (wich the Gulf States and Turkey funded, the US and NATO have been supporting). 

Turkey will aid their Sunni-Gulf States friends and also come to the rescue of Sunni-muslims in Iraq (and Syria). But there may be no need for a "false flag" for NATO and Gulf States, IS is an excuse in itself. 

The US may start "a major war" elsewere, South China Sea, Ukraine, even Pakistan could be used for the US its war for dominance. 

Only strong public pressure on the US-elite might stop further escalation. Russia has its own agenda, wants to sell energy to the EU. The war in Syria/Iraq is about gas/oil-pipelines (Qatar would be the other candidate for oil and gas). 

From climate-change view fossil fuels should be abandoned. But to much money is still in fossil fuels. The US $ is to much linked to it (what would the US $ be without energy to cover for it in the world energy market ?). 

I hope I am wrong. But the road leading to a "major war"seems to be taken.

http://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2015/12/10/441186/US-Daesh-War-Weapons-Arno-Develay

The United States is providing the Daesh (ISIL) Takfiri group modern weapons in order to prolong a war in the Middle East region, an international human rights lawyer says.

Arno Develay, who is based in Paris, told Press TV on Thursday that US weapons manufacturers are the main beneficiary of a protracted war in the Middle East.

A recent report by Amnesty International has revealed that the terror group is in possession of a substantial lethal arsenal of US-made weapons and equipment they captured from the Iraqi military and militants fighting against the Syrian government.

The prominent human rights group noted in its report that the quantity and range of Daesh arsenal "ultimately reflects decades of irresponsible arms transfers to Iraq and multiple failures by the US-led occupation administration to manage arms deliveries and stocks securely, as well as endemic corruption in Iraq itself."

"Any targets threatening our [military] group or land infrastructure must be immediately destroyed," Putin said, speaking at a Defense Ministry event.

Putin said over 5,000 members of the Free Syrian Army are operating on the terrorists’ side.

"In general, the actions of the Russian groups deserve high praise. This is a result of work by the Ministry of Defense, General Staff officers, Russian Air Force pilots and the Russian Navy," he added.

In the meantime, Sergey Shoigu, Russian Defense Minister, added that Islamic State is controlling about 70% of the Syrian territory, adding that in both Syria and Iraq there are about 60,000 militants.

"The Islamic State area of influence is expanding. Militants have seized about 70 percent of the Syrian territory," he said, “There is a threat that their actions will be transferred to Central Asia and the Caucasus.”

To the date, the Russian military have carried out about 4,000 sorties, striking around 8,000 terrorist objects in Syria, he added.

http://www.voltairenet.org/article189607.html

On Dec 7 the Cyber-Berkut made public another set of evidence exposing preparations for false flag attacks in Syria by the Ministry of Defense of Qatar. According to a hacked mail by Anton Pashynskyi, a SpetsTechnoExport (official Ukrainian arms trader) functionary, on Oct 21, 2015 he wrote to his Polish partner Level 11 the following:
“Good afternoon! There is a new proposal. The Qatari military want to buy 2 thousand High Explosive Fragmentation bombs OFAB 250-270. The issue is urgent, they are ready to pay US$2100 per item. Consider how to deliver ASAP. The final recipient is the Ministry of Defense of Qatar. EUC is enclosed.” 

 Why does the Qatari Minitry of Defense want to buy enormous arsenal of the air bombs, not only unfit for their aircrafts, but at a price 3 times (!) higher than the market one? (normally OFAB 250-270 is sold at US$700-800 per item)

The answer is horrifically simple: to make an OFAB 250-270 explode you do not need to drop it from a jet — it can be done right on the ground. Any Qatar-linked terrorist group can drive it to a highly-populated area in Syria and stage a “merciless strike by the Russian aviation”. No doubt the a number of absolutely independent forensic experts would promptly conclude that this type of bomb is widely used by the Russian AF in Syria.

At the end we have to note that some pro-Kiev bloggers are harping on the allegations about “Russian aviation recklessly using unguided bombs close to civilian areas in Syria” since early October.

The US and NATO keep supporting Turkey eventhough Turkey is supporting IS. http://sputniknews.com/middleeast/20151211/1031598600/turkey-opposition-nato-incirlik-airbase.html


Saudi Arabia already did loose 6 ships in the Yemen war. The UAE is sending Blackwater mercenaries to fight Yemen. Also Marocco, Sudan, Qatar, Bahrein (and US) is fighting Yemen and Iran in this war that is spreading inside Saudi Arabia. http://www.veteranstoday.com/2015/12/11/southfront-11-12-2015-yemen-crisis-news/

Six Saudi troops killed in suicide bombing on Saudi-Iraqi border 
DEBKAfile December 12, 2015, 1:32 PM (IDT)

A suicide bomber Saturday killed six Saudi guards, including a lieutenant colonel, by detonating a bomb-rigged military truck on the Saudi Hafr Zawiyah border post HQ in the Anbar province between Saudi Arabia and Iraq. Another 14 guards were wounded. The bomber was dressed in military uniform with a captain’s insignia. DEBKAfile: This was the first direct ISIS attack on a Saudi military post on the border with Iraq


 Dutch Josh: Of course this would give the Gulf States the excuse to invade Iraq. According to RT the 6 troops killed were Iraqi :

Base commander & 5 more killed in suicide attack on Iraqi border post

Six Iraqi border guards were killed and 14 more injured in a suicide car bomb attack on an Iraqi post in the country’s western Anbar province near the border with Saudi Arabia, AFP reports. The Iraqi base commander, Lieutenant Colonel Hussein al-Goli, is among the dead, AFP added citing Iraqi military officials.

A suicide bomber on an explosives-rigged vehicle rammed into a checkpoint near the border security’s headquarters in the town of al-Nukhayb, 100 kilometers from the border with Saudi Arabia. No organization has claimed responsibility for the attack so far.

http://www.veteranstoday.com/2015/12/11/any-targets-threatening-russian-forces-in-syria-must-be-immediately-destroyed-putin/


One has to read between the lines in this “threatening Russian forces…must be immediately destroyed” statement. Putin is sending a message to those countries that have Special Ops teams in Syria trying to kill or kidnap Russian advisors and troops, that there will be no “after the fact” discussions about the matter.

He is ordering his forces to kill them on the spot or even in the planning stage, or really…for being in Syria to kill Russian forces. Such threats are never made directly.

To all the Blackwater type contractors that we know are in Syria, this means that Russian Spetsnaz will be hunting them down pre-emptively, and with all the modern high-tech tools available to assist them, which of course they have a perfect right to do,

Usually even serving US Special ops people would be out of uniform for such work, which can make for some unfortunate incidents. Certainly some have already been killed in the over 4000 bombing sorties by the Russian anti-terror effort. For those killed some cover story has to be given to their families, as they would never be told they were killed in an anti-terrorism operation…for being terrorists.

Welcome to the nasty world we live it. But that said, there is no shortage of people, active duty or veteran contractors willing to do this kind of work, not only for the money but for polishing up their resumes for “independent work”.

While there has been a lot of coverage on the threat that returning jihadis can bring to their home countries, there is no discussion of the flip side of that coin…Western, and usually Anglo special ops people… Jim W. Dean ]

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-12-17/financial-warfare-big-reset

 ‘World trade is now a game in which the US produces dollars and the rest of the world produces things that dollars can buy … a dollar hegemony that forces the world to export not only goods but also dollar earnings from trade to the US … Everyone accepts dollars because dollars can buy oil.’ Only when dollar-holding nations decide to buy natural resources instead of US treasuries, is the dollar’s reserve currency status in danger. This is exactly the exit strategy China and Russia seems to be playing right now. In recent years, the Russians have sold most of their dollar holdings, while they tripled their gold position. The Chinese have stopped buying extra US Treasuries since 2010 while they have imported and invested in huge amounts of gold. These developments signal the first stages of the US dollar’s decay.

President Recep Erdogan of Turkey has openly threatened to invade and occupy Russia over the deteriorating relations after Turkey shot down a Russian Jet!-It appears that Erdogan is being told by NATO what to say so as to infuriate Russia into war.  What other explanation could there be?  Would a President of a NATO member country ever say something as inflammatory as this without prior approval?

If Erdogan is speaking with NATO blessing, then who within NATO has decided we are ready for war with the Russians?  Certainly not the United States Congress, which is the ONLY entity in the USA which is empowered to Declare War.  Such a decision is nowhere on the radar screen of Congress!

Turkey to establish military base in Qatar to fight 'shared enemies' 

DEBKAfile December 17, 2015, 1:40 PM (IDT)

Turkish ambassador to Qatar Ahmet Demirok said Wednesday that his country will set up a military base on Qatari territory "to fight the shared enemies of the two countries." The Turkish military activity in Qatar will include the placement of 3,000 Turkish troops and the establishment of air and naval units as well as "special warfare units."
DEBKAfile's military and political sources point out that:
1. Both Turkey and Qatar have supported the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, the Syrian opposition and the rebels who deserted from the Syrian army, and have opposed the rising influence of Iran in the region and the Russian intervention in the conflict in Syria.
2. Even though Ankara approved the base in 2014, the steps for establishment of the base are only underway now because they been approved by Saudi King Salman.
3. The base plan is additional proof of the tightening of diplomatic relations between the two sides as well as the growing Saudi involvement in the effort for establishment of an "Islamic military coalition" that includes both Qatar and Turkey.

With Erdogan running Turkey you only can expect "severe unrest"in the region.  But also Israël has a big problem with less support from the US and EU and growing Russian influence (more than 1 million Israeli's have a Russian background, Russian is the second language in Israël).



Turkey helped Iran evade international sanctions, but has since fallen out with the Islamic Republic of Iran over its support of Syria's Bashar Assad. A Muslim Brotherhood supporter, Erdogan was close to Egypt's former President, Muslim Brotherhood member Mohamed Morsi, and has been an outspoken adversary of President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. Turkey was and remains a conduit for arms and money for various parties to the Syrian civil war. The U.S. has demanded that Erdogan seal Turkey's border with Syria, which he has not done. Turkey also has bombed Kurdish fightersdeployed its forces to Iraqi territory and declined to remove them; and sold ISIS oil on the black market. There are allegations that the Turkish government knew sarin gas was transferred to ISIS across Turkish territory. In November, Turkey shot down a Russian military jet, in the biggest move down the current slide of Turkish-Russian relations, which began when Vladimir Putin stepped in to prevent the collapse of Syria. [This is on top of historical animosity between Turkey, the successor to Muslim Ottoman rule, and Russia, the self-proclaimed defender of the Christian Orthodox Church.]

Russia, furious at the downing of its plane, instituted a series of economic sanctions against Turkey, the most important of which is suspension of the TurkStream project, designed to boost Russian gas exports to Turkey. Turkey is the second-largest importer of Russian gas, after Germany.

(DJ) a good comment:

It's not long ago that Turkey wanted to buy Chinese missiles and was reprimanded by NATO. They joined the low rank in the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) and wanted to be on the path to full membership. When told that this was not possible while being a NATO member, they were quite dismissive of NATO. They were also dismissive of EU membership. Now it's buddies again. Erdogan + Assad, google that, they were quite friendly for a while, buddies like the French President Chirac and Saddam Hussein.

In that region they change their attitudes and allegiances like the weather. Anybody who takes them seriously will be burned.

There's a theory that Big Banks are a crime syndicate, who use financial weapons of mass destruction to destroy entire nations.  Now, proof . . .

First the theory: The Big Bank crime syndicate is engaged in the serial manipulation of credit default swaps, in order to (among other things) destroy the economies of entire nations. It’s one of the reasons these “financial weapons of mass destruction” ( Warren Buffett ) were illegal in the U.S. for roughly 100 years, banned under anti-gambling statutes.

The theory was supported by a combination of compelling empirical evidence and logical deduction (i.e. “circumstantial evidence”) – roughly the same evidentiary basis by which we obtain most of our criminal convictions in our courts of law. The difference here is that with our governments having abandoned the Rule of Law, there was no one ready or willing to adjudicate over such evidence.

Iran is already fighting (by proxy) Saudi Arabia in Yemen and Syria. The war in Yemen has crossed the border with Saudi Arabia. Sunni-states (gulf states, Pakistan, Sudan etc) might consider the shia-form of Islam such a treath that war could be the next step. 

From superstation: Last night, Sudan, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) cut-off Diplomatic ties with Iran.

When Diplomatic relations get shut-off, it usually means war is about to get turned on.  The sides seem to be forming.

Zerohedge has a map with Sunni and Shia-muslims per country in the Middle East. Of course Islam is a world religion. When the two main groups in Islam start fighting each other it will have a global effect. 

RT is giving updates on the Middle-East developments: https://www.rt.com/news/327728-saudi-executes-shiite-cleric/

Turkey (NATO-member) and Saudi Arabia both are western allies and supporters of IS. Israel is also-more or less-in the same "camp". Sudan, Marocco, Gulf States etc is in a coalition with Saudi Arabia in the Yemen war. 


UPDATE 4:45 PM EST Monday, January 4, 2015  -- Pakistan and Djibouti cut Diplomatic Relations with Iran as of today, with Pakistan closing the Iranian Embassy and escorting its Diplomats OUT of the country!

Additionally - and more ominously -- Saudi Arabia today announced it has granted permission to ISRAEL, to use Saudi airspace to attack Iran over the Iranian nuclear program!

The pieces are falling into place very fast for a massive war in the Middle East.  A war the US and Russia will be dragged-into, on opposing sides.  These are serious, dangerous, developments.

I do not know what to think of this: https://www.superstation95.com/index.php/world/727

With terrifying mathematical certainty, an internal project at the world's leading probabilities firm concludes economic collapse and world war within 90 days; 100% certain.

North Korea conducts hydrogen bomb test


http://www.cnn.com/2016/01/05/asia/north-korea-seismic-event/index.html?sr=fbCNN010616north-korea-seismic-event0342AMVODtopLink&linkId=20125323

CNN)A North Korean nuclear test has caused a seismic event in an area in the northeast of the reclusive country. Three previous nuclear tests, in 2006, 2009 and 2013, were conducted in the region.

A televised North Korean statement confirmed the test was a hydrogen bomb test. The test took place at 10 a.m. local time.

The USGS, which measured the event at a magnitude of 5.1, said it occurred 19 kilometers (12 miles) east-northeast of Sungjibaegam.

South Korean foreign ministry hastily convened an emergency meeting, and officials in Japan were also holding discussions.

North Korea's internationally isolated regime is a heavily militarized state with a huge standing army of 1.2 million active soldiers and 7.7 million reservists.

But its conventional weaponry is dated, with limited effectiveness, and it has looked to developing its nuclear capabilities to project power internationally.

The country declared it had nuclear weapons in 2003, and conducted nuclear tests in 2006, 2009 and 2013.

In May last year, it said it had the ability to miniaturize nuclear weapons, a development that would allow it to deploy nuclear weapons on missiles. A U.S. National Security Council spokesman responded at the time that the United States did not think the North Koreans had such a capability.

David Albright, a former U.N. weapons inspector, told CNN last year that Pyongyang could already have 10 to 15 atomic weapons, and that it could grow that amount by several weapons per year.

He said he believed Pyongyang had the capability to miniaturize a warhead for shorter missiles, but not yet for intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching the United States.

What happens with an underground nuclear test?

The worry I have over North Korea is that the North Korean dictatorship only can exist because China enables it to exist. North Korea is the "unfriendly face of China". Should this H-bomb testing been seen as a warning from China towards "the West"? Proberbly. With the many crises in the world H-bomb testing by North Korea is not something that makes the world a better place. 

Dutchsinse also warns for this test https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTnATykEqYo

From Dutchsinse:I don't have to tell anyone that this man made earthquake is not a good development for multiple reasons. 


With the other seismic activity building in the region around Japan to the East, and India to the South (India just hit by a near M7.0 one day ago)... this large man made seismic event caused by the underground hydrogen bomb test is sheer foolishness when it comes to playing around with the seismic safety of the whole West Pacific.

We should see seismic results from this underground blast for weeks to come (if the story of a hydrogen blast is true). Even if it was conventional explosives, we would expect to see aftershocks.

This is only a recent development, thus time will tell the full tale on the ramifications of this underground detonation.

Be on watch for larger earthquake activity globally due to the concentrated electron cascade , plasma energy, and electrical discharge which goes to the Earth's core following these underground detonations.

Good article from Zero-Hedge; are Turkey, Saudi Arabia (or Pakistan, ISI is the taliban in Afghanistan) realy the "best friends the west can have"?


These incidents raise some long-dormant but overdue questions.

What exactly is our vital interest in a permanent military alliance that obligates us to go to war on behalf of an autocratic ally as erratic and rash as Turkey’s Tayyip Recep Erdogan?

Do U.S.-Turkish interests really coincide today?

While Turkey’s half-million-man army could easily seal the Syrian border and keep ISIS fighters from entering or leaving, it has failed to do so. Instead, Turkey is using its army to crush the Kurdish PKK and threaten the Syrian Kurds who are helping us battle ISIS.

In Syria’s civil war — with the army of Bashar Assad battling ISIS and al-Qaida — it is Russia and Iran and even Hezbollah that seem to be more allies of the moment than the Turks, Saudis or Gulf Arabs.

“We have no permanent allies … no permanent enemies … only permanent interests” is a loose translation of the dictum of the 19th century British Prime Minister Lord Palmerston.

Turkey’s shoot-down of a Russian jet and the Saudi execution of a revered Shiite cleric, who threatened no one in prison, should cause the United States to undertake a cost-benefit analysis of the alliances and war guarantees we have outstanding, many of them dating back half a century.

Do all, do any, still serve U.S. vital national interests?

In the Middle East, where the crucial Western interest is oil, and every nation — Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Libya — has to sell it to survive — no nation should be able drag us into a war not of our own choosing.

In cases where we share a common enemy, we should follow the wise counsel of the Founding Fathers and entrust our security, if need be, to “temporary,” but not “permanent” or “entangling alliances.”

Moreover, given the myriad religious, national and tribal divisions between the nations of the Middle East, and within many of them, we should continue in the footsteps of our fathers, who kept us out of such wars when they bedeviled the European continent of the 19th century.

This hubristic Saudi blunder should be a wake-up call for us all.
