The Russian Move in Syria: Changing the Game
by Chris Bollyn
“How can the United States and its allies fight terrorism or ISIS in Syria and Iraq while their closest allies in the government of Erdogan and Davutoglu are supporting terrorists and enabling them to cross the borders and bring weapons, money, and volunteers through Turkey?”
– Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad, October 4, 2015
“Without a doubt, Russia will win this race. I have no doubt at all, and the reason behind that is practical and simple: it’s because Russia is coordinating with the Syrian Arab Army, which is the only force in Syria that is confronting terrorism.”
– Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem, October 5, 2015
Dear colleagues, I must note that such an honest and frank approach on Russia’s part has been recently used as a pretext for accusing it of its growing ambitions — as if those who say that have no ambitions at all. However, it is not about Russia’s ambitions, dear colleagues, but about the recognition of the fact that we can no longer tolerate the current state of affairs in the world. What we actually propose is to be guided by common values and common interests rather than by ambitions. Relying on international law, we must join efforts to address the problems that all of us are facing, and create a genuinely broad international coalition against terrorism.
– Russian President Vladimir Putin speaking at the UN General Assembly, New York City, September 28, 2015
If we look at the Middle East conflict like a game of chess, we would have to say that Russian president Vladimir Putin’s military intervention to support the government of Syria is a brilliant and perfectly-timed move that could change the whole game. If Putin’s move succeeds it may very well bring an end to the war in Syria in the very near future.
Putin’s move comes very late in the game, after more than four years of war in Syria, but the timing is perfect, coming shortly after U.S. policy in Syria was exposed on Capitol Hill to be a complete and very expensive failure. Furthermore, since the government of Syria requested military support from the Kremlin, Russia’s intervention in Syria is perfectly legal under international law, while U.S. intervention is not.
If Russia succeeds in defeating ISIS and bringing peace to Syria, the game will be over for the C.I.A.-trained mercenaries who are fighting against the Syrian government headed by Bashar Al Assad. A Russian victory over ISIS and other terrorist groups in Syria will expose the duplicity of U.S. policy in the fraudulent “War on Terror.”
It remains to be seen how the U.S. and other nations supporting the mercenary forces fighting in Syria will respond to the Russian intervention. Unlike chess, this game has no rules.
The question that Americans should be asking is: Why is the Obama administration fighting a covert and illegal war against Syria and demanding that its leader be removed from power?
Firstly, Barack Obama and his Secretary of Defense, Ashton Carter, are not acting as Americans who put America’s national interests first. These men are actually working as administrators for the Rothschild family and the Zionist establishment. Ashton Carter has a long history of serving as an administrator for the Rothschild family. Carter, for example, is on the board of the Belfer Center at Harvard, where Nathaniel Rothschild is on the Advisory board.
Carter was also a Senior Partner at Global Technology Partners, LLC, (GTP) “an exclusive affiliate of Rothschild North America, formed to make acquisitions of and investments in technology, defense and aerospace-related companies.”
Carter, a long-time agent of the Rothschild family, went on to serve as Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics from April 2009 to October 2011, with responsibility for procurement of all technology, systems, services, and supplies, bases and infrastructure, energy, and environment, and more than $50 billion annually in R&D. He then served as Deputy Secretary of Defense from October 2011 to December 2013, serving as the chief operating officer of the Defense Department, overseeing more than $600 billion per year.
U.S. Secretary of Defense Ashton B. Carter made his career serving the Rothschild’s Zionist agenda.
When he worked for the Rothschild affiliate, GTP, Carter wrote an article, with John M. Deutch and Philip D. Zelikow, entitled “Catastrophic Terrorism.” This article appeared in the last issue of Foreign Affairs in 1998. The article begins with the strange subtitle “Imagining the Transforming Event,” as if something like 9-11 was actually desired by the authors in order to bring about a transformation of the U.S. government and the way Americans live.
Understanding Carter’s connection to the Rothschild family is essential to understanding his hawkish position on Syria, Iran, and Russia. He is clearly not acting in America’s best interest; he is simply following orders given by his Zionist patrons, who are the real masterminds of the fraudulent “War on Terror.”
