“If it looks like a terrorist, if it acts like a terrorist, if it walks like a terrorist, if it fights like a terrorist, it’s a terrorist, right?”
– Russian Foreign Mister Sergey Lavrov when countering criticism that Russia had bombed Syrian rebels and not ISIS
According to Defense Secretary Ash Carter…an Obama puppet… Russia’s air strikes in Syria will backfire and escalate the Syrian civil war. ‘Captain Obvious’ may be onto something here, but even a blind squirrel can find a nut. The problem is, Carter has no idea why, exactly, this could cause the civil war there to escalate, but Obama certainly does, but telling the truth would not serve his agenda.
To find the truth, we must first examine just how the situation came to be what it now is, and while Obama and his puppets continue to blame Putin, the truth takes us down a completely different path.
‘The Obama Doctrine’…that is what we have always called it…has reared its ugly head over and over again. That doctrine holds, as its primary directive, the creation of vacuums of power in some of the most dangerous places on earth. For example, Libya…where Obama said Muammar Gaddafi must go and go he did. What happened next…a vacuum of power was created and islamists…al-Qaeda…moved right in and set up shop with disastrous results, especially for our diplomats stationed in Benghazi.
Egypt…Mubarak must go or so said Obama and what happened…the Muslim Brotherhood headed by Mohamed Morsi, filled the vacuum and the situation there went from bad to absolutely worse overnight. Obama was more than happy to arm Morsi with tanks and F-16’s, but the people of Egypt had other ideas, and after Morsi let it be known that he was about to scrap the decade’s old lraeli/Egypt peace accord, Egypt’s people threw Morsi from power and replaced him with Field Marshal Abdel Fattah Saeed Hussein Khalil el-Sisi…a moderate secular proponent who, just as his people did, realized that the key to a stable region was a continued peace and working relationship with Israel.
What did Obama do as soon as his Muslim Brotherhood pals were out of power in Cairo…he canceled the shipments of F-16’s.
Iraq…Obama claims to have ‘ended’ the Iraqi war and told our enemies, the islamists, exactly when we would have all our troops out of the country. Obama also let it be known, for enemy ears to hear, that we would not leave a residual force, a peace keeping force in-country, thus telegraphing to our islamist enemies precisely when the vacuum of power in Iraq would be ripe for their picking and pick they did. As soon as our military was out of the way, on Obama’s orders, ISIS moved from their country of origin straight into the Iraqi vacuum to set up shop and grew as they never could have if we had left residual forces there to protect the hard won and ever-so-costly peace.
Afghanistan…Obama left, created a vacuum of power, and today the Taliban runs rough-shod over that country.
That brings us to Syria, where Obama first operated a covert gun running op sending weapons he had given al-Qaeda in Libya, those used to oust Gaddafi and create that vacuum of power to the al-Qaeda ‘rebels’ in Syria…meant to oust al-Assad and create a vacuum of power there. After Benghazi, and with Obama saying that al-Assad, like Mubarak and Gaddafi before him, had to go, Obama set in motion the arming of the ‘rebels’ whose ranks by then included ISIS, al-Nusra, and other various islamists, along with spending some $500 million U.S. taxpayer dollars to train all of 54 of them…49 of which went and joined ISIS. That’s correct, our hard-earned taxpayer dollars flowed through Obama’s fingers to train our enemies in a war zone. Nice, huh?
Obama’s plan, in accordance with the Obama doctrine, was to create yet another vacuum of power…this time in Syria…to be filled once again by islamists but this time, Obama met his match…no… not Vladimir Putin…Obama’s match is, in fact, Barack HUSSEIN Obama himself.
Let us explain…
In ‘leading from behind,’ something that neither the United States nor our military was ever designed to do, Obama painted himself, and our nation, into a corner from which there can be no easy escape. He created a vacuum of power alright, but this time, that vacuum was not to be filled by islamists but by Russian military warplanes.
You see, by removing us, the United States from the position of influence, the force to be respected by our allies and feared by our enemies, Obama gave Putin, a statist who is trying to rebuild the old Russian Empire, a prime opportunity and Putin played Obama like a cheap fiddle. Putin instantly recognized the first signs of the soon-to-be vacuum when Obama drew a red line against al-Assad and then did nothing when the Syrian leader crossed it. Putin knew right then that Obama was so laser-focused on building the caliphate of his dreams that he, Obama, was completely ignoring his own blind side…his arrogance…and that he would never see it coming.
Putin, who can put the old Russian Empire back on the map by strategically positioning himself as the bearer of stability to the Middle East, has been meeting with Israel’s Netanyahu over the past year to form an alliance, and by taking on the region’s most destabilizing factions, the islamists in all their various forms in Syria, he has done exactly that and filled the vacuum of power Obama created for himself. Putin’s enemy in Syria is exactly who our enemies should be, the very ‘rebels’ Obama has backed, armed, and trained, and Putin’s goal is two-fold. First, to put an end to the expansion of ISIS and second, to become the region’s new broker of influence.
By taking on the man who ‘leads from behind,’ by aiming his SU-30s at Obama’s rebels, the islamist terrorists and their organizations, and by beating them back, first in Syria and then elsewhere, Putin can reestablish some sense of stability to the region thus making Russia the new ‘go-to’ country for the more secular, more stable governments there. Of course, that also will put Putin’s Russia in the driver’s seat when it comes time to be paid back for the protection he is providing…lower oil prices for Russia, military bases in the region as a deterrent against future islamist uprisings, and the sale of military hardware to countries trying to buy a little extra protection, not to mention gaining a working relationship like he’s never had before with more friendly intel organizations from the region.
Seizing the moment, and the position held by the United States in the region since the end of WWII, Putin’s bold and calculated move has dire consequences for our position on the world stage as he well knows that if successful, Russia will become a super power once again, but it’s not like we weren’t warned.
“So we try and put pressure on Iran, they fought against crippling sanctions. We tried to get tough language at the U.N. and action against the brutality of [President Bashar] al-Assad in Syria, they instead send attack helicopters to Syria. I mean, Russia has been opposing us in political circles for some time. Russia is our greatest geopolitical adversary, meaning that almost everything we try to do globally they try and oppose. My own view is that Russia has a very different agenda than ours and that we ought to recognize that, and that we should pursue our interests, but recognize Russia as having a different course.”
Oh how Obama, his puppets, and his liberal/socialist sheeple scoffed when Mitt Romney said just that on September 10, 2012. Bet they’re not laughing now.
Not laughing now as Romney’s forebodings prove that 70-long years of American blood and treasure being spilled and spent in the Middle East was all for nothing, as Vladimir Putin has indeed started rebuilding the Russian Empire…and this lies directly at the feet of Barack HUSSEIN Obama, and nobody can say Romney did not warn us.
A dangerous game was played and now lost as our beloved America has, courtesy of Obama, been knocked out of first place as the world’s leading super power. And to add insult to injury, the Obama administration is playing tit-for-tat word-wise with the very man whose actions have caught both U.S. and Western officials off guard. And to make matters worse, according to the Russian Defense Ministry, warplanes targeted eight ISIS positions, including arms, transportation, communications, and control positions, but according to U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter they were not ISIS positions. Saying, “I want to be careful about confirming information, but it does appear that they (Russian air strikes) were in areas where there probably were not ISIL forces,” notice how Carter uses the acronym ‘ISIL’…a shout-out by the administration to the Levant.
And with the upper house of the Russian parliament granting Putin permission to deploy the Russian air force in Syria, Syrian state-run news agency SANA reported that Russian warplanes and helicopter gunships had targeted “ISIS dens” in al-Rastan, Talbiseh and Zafaraniya in Homs province; Al-Tilol al-Hmer, in Qunaitra province; Aydoun, a village on the outskirts of the town of Salamiya; Deer Foul between Hama and Homs; and the outskirts of Salmiya, while the Syrian opposition claimed the Russian warplanes had hit towns including Zafaraneh, Rastan and Talbiseh; resulting in the deaths of 36 people, with a number of them being children. But what Obama and crew refuse to admit is that even if these were Syrian rebels being hit, the Syrian rebels…most especially the Free Syrian Army…are nothing but a tentacle of ISIS…a tentacle fighting al-Assad with U.S. weapons…weapons some of which we know came through Benghazi.
So with Syria’s civil war now ongoing for over four years, with more than 250,000 Syrians killed and and a million injured in this armed conflict…a conflict which began with simple anti-government protests before escalating into a full-scale civil war…and with a number of armed groups…islamists all…fighting to overthrow al-Assad’s secular government this fight boils down to the U.S. and its allies Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the UK, and France, being in direct opposition to not only Russia but to Iran and Lebanon’s Hezbollah movement, which also are supporting al-Assad and his government. And while Obama is insisting that al-Assad must leave office, Putin insists al-Assad remain in power, in fact, Putin insists that the existing state structures in Syria must be “reinforced” as a defense against ISIS, thus setting up a checkmate of sorts between the Russian Bear and our traitor-in chief. And folks, you know that will not serve the U.S. well, especially when Putin has just shown the world Moscow’s ability to deploy military force with both speed and efficiency…when Moscow just showed the world that the most powerful military countries in the world…the U.S., the U.K., and the French military…are losing the war against ISIS.
And having Secretary of State John ‘Swiftboat’ Kerry saying before the U.N. Security Council that the U.S. was prepared to welcome Russian military action in Syria…but only as long as it was only directed against IS (Kerry, like Obama, of course will not say ISIS) or other terrorist groups like al-Qaeda…and that the U.S. would have “grave concerns” if Russia conducted strikes against other groups…is quite laughable as Kerry wants us to believe that Obama is still calling the shots in the Middle East and simply put, he is not, as this game of war as it’s now being played is tilted in Russia’s favor with Vladimir Putin the one actually calling the shots. And the proof of this is that the Russian government provided but a cursory notice an hour before beginning their military operations, and included in that notice their demand that the U.S. coalition stay out of Syrian airspace. And to deflect Putin’s strength away from the Obama’s weakness, the administration is claiming that Putin’s intervention will do nothing but prolong and complicate the war, but the truth is that Obama’s misguided policies have already done that.
Also, remember six key words said by Kerry’s Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov when issuing a joint statement on Wednesday…those words being “a democratic secular government in Syria.” Key words that indicate that when all is said and done, unlike Obama, Vladimir Putin has no intention of letting the mullahs call the shots anywhere in the Middle East.
So while Kerry whines that the U.S. and Russia need to hold military talks as soon as possible, Putin is coalescing power as Russia’s involvement in Syria continues to grow, and it’s Putin’s burgeoning strength that complicates Obama’s failing region-wide anything but true diplomacy tactics. And know that U.S. military operations will assuredly become affected if for no other reason then Putin’s catching Obama off guard, which now forces Obama to maintain a level of co-operation with Putin, especially when our military operations are being hampered by the absence of any reliable allies on the ground, with the exception of the Kurds whom Obama is doing nothing of substance to either aid or support.
And while some say that the real reason for Russia’s current military actions in Syria is to protect its own interests there, specifically its air base in Latakia which is close to Israel’s northern border (to help protect Israel perhaps as Putin and Netanyhau have had numerous meetings in Moscow at the same time Obama was busy selling Israel out with his very bad Iranian nuclear deal), and its naval facility in Tartus, both of which give Russia a foothold in the Middle East.
But what’s forgotten in the midst of what’s currently happening is Putin’s contempt for islamists…for muslims…in general.
Remember, above all else that Vladimir Putin speaks the language of Russian power well, and that he is not very tolerant of any resistance to Russian interests…and islamic interests are not now nor have they ever been Russian interests. And this feeds into Putin’s growing concerns about islam in general after numerous islamist attacks racked his country, leading his government to start imposing measures to control muslim immigration for Vladimir Putin will never allow ‘Mother Russia’…unlike Europe…to become the dumping ground for those out to kill us all. And Putin understands well that if muslim battles are kept ‘over there’…if stability is reintroduced ‘over there’ even if it’s under a brutal dictator like al-Assad…then there is no reason for ‘them’ to come here…here in Putin’s case being Russia. And if Putin’s military actions coupled with his outward political support of the very man Obama opposes helps to keep them ‘over there,’ at the same time it will allow Vladamir Putin to become the puppet master who pulls the strings of Bashar al-Assad…thus allowing Putin to become the defacto ruler of Syria.
So as Russian air strikes continue ongoing today, and now with the arrival of Iranian ground troops to serve as Russia’s army on the ground, the question remains is this actually the harbinger of a proxy war between the U.S. and Russia…between Barack HUSSEIN Obama and Vladimir Putin as there is no love lost between the two men. Sadly, all indicators appear that it is, and it’s all courtesy of Obama himself being one of the enemy. But know that Obama is NOT only an enemy to America, but that his stances go well beyond just America’s old Cold War hatreds with the old Soviet Union for what Obama just does not get is that Putin is himself not a communist nor does he embrace any of communism’s ideologies. Vladimir Putin is a statist and an embracer of capitalism as long as that capitalism serves him and Russia well, and capitalism is needed for him to rebuild the Russian Empire.
Remember too, that capitalism is the antithesis of everything the mullahs stand for and Putin knows that the mullahs in the end must not be allowed to stay in power, and with Putin controlling the Iranian army now in Syria this helps build their allegiance to him which could result in a possible overthrow of the mullahs down the road, and Obama’s allegiance has been proven to be with the mullahs and not with any of those wanting to oust them.
So now as we sit and wait to see what will happen…if anything…when U.S. warplanes get in the way of Russian warplanes, the situation in Syria will continue to boil, and the special-ops people Obama has embedded within the ‘so-called’ rebels will now be put in danger from Russian air strikes and Iranian ground troops, but what does it matter if a few more Americans are killed as you know that Barack HUSSEIN Obama already has a cover-up story in place to serve the ever-growing caliphate well.
