President Obama Blinks And Will Not Use U.S. Troops in Syria

by John Galt October 15, 2016 09:15 ET There was great speculation leading into yesterday’s meeting of the White House National Security team that President Obama might push for using United States military assets against Bashir al-Assad’s forces around Aleppo and thus potentially killing or coming into direct confrontation with the Russian military. Unfortunately for those who wanted to see the big test of the S-400 anti-aircraft missile against the USAF or Russian pilots actually dogfighting with American counterparts, that thankfully will have to wait for another day. From the White…


Syria War Update: Videos of the Ground Assault on Aleppo

by John Galt October 3, 2016 21:15 ET In what can only be called a rare occurrence in modern warfare, a major assault by a large army is under way inside of a major city. In recent history, outside of Gulf War II, there have been few incursions into major cities and instead, bypassing and surrounding them has been the tactic of the day. However, Bashia al-Assad has no choice but to recapture the second largest city of Aleppo in its entirety to demonstrate he has control of what is left…


Look for Russia to Impose a No-Fly Zone for U.S. Forces over Syria

by John Galt September 17, 2016 18:15 ET Over a year ago I published a map where I thought Russia might impose a so-called “No-Fly Zone” over parts of Syria to block pro-U.S. coalition aircraft from operating. That was on September 9, 2015: That zone is no longer relevant after today. The Russian Federation, despite what the morons in D.C. thinks, does not like to be humiliated nor lied to and the United States under President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have betrayed President Vladimir Putin for the last…


08.24 05:15 ET BREAKING NEWS: Turkish Military Crossed into Syria to Attack ISIS and Kurd Positions

by John Galt August 24, 2016 05:15 ET In the past hour, the government of Turkey stayed true to its word and launched a massive cross-border intervention into the Syrian government territory of Aleppo this morning, crossing the border after a night of heavy aerial bombardment near the towns of Jarabulus and apparently heading to the Kurdish held town of Manbij to clear the region of ISIS and Kurdish forces. This operation is designed to clear the border and create the buffer to prevent further attacks from northeast Syria into southern…


Did Europe Just Witness an August 1939 Von Ribbentrop Moment?

by John Galt August 16, 2016 04:00 ET On August 23, 1939, the Foreign Ministers of Germany and Russia, Ribbentrop and Molotov, signed an extensive non-aggression pact which resulted in the future de facto division of Poland and surrender of all German claims to the Baltic states and some Romanian border territories in exchange for Germany having a free hand to deal with what they called the “Polish Problem” of that moment in history. Nine days later the world was introduced to Blitzkrieg, total war, and an overwhelming modern invasion of…


Russia Ups the Ante and Deploys Strategic Bombers to Base in Iran (Video)

by John Galt August 15, 2016 20:45 ET The story from Al-Masdar News is a stunner: Russia deploys jets at Iranian Airbase to combat insurgents in Syria By Chris Tomson 15/08/2016 Al-Masdar News has obtained exclusive photos of Russian warplanes being deployed to the Hamedan Air Base in western Iran. Currently, the strategic TU-22M3 bombers take flight from southern Russia at Modzok airfield; however, this newly signed military agreement with Iran will allow Russia to reduce flight time by 60%, saving the Kremlin both money and improving airstrike effectiveness. The distance…


Did Saudi Arabia Help Erdogan with the Attempted Phony Coup?

by John Galt July 17, 2016 15:50 ET The story from the Western media is totally inconsistent with the pro-Government Turkish and Middle Eastern propaganda outlets as the period some thirty-six hours after the coup comes into clear view. The headline on the Drudge Report earlier today summed it up quite nicely: The story it the Drudge Report linked to was from the U.K. Daily Mail: Crocodile tears? Turkish president Erdoğan breaks down in tears at coup victim’s funeral as he calls his opponents a ‘virus’ who must be purged  The…


06.19 Latest Videos from Syria: What Ceasefire?

by John Galt June 19, 2016 14:30 ET For some strange reason the United States and Russia are trying to maintain the charade of a “ceasefire” inside the rapidly imploding war zone known as Syria. These videos from various news sources tend to dispel that myth. Where the subject matter was posted in Arabic or another language, I have used Google Translate to accommodate my readers. When a terrorist pick up truck is seen with a group of terrs in Aleppo yesterday, simply dial 1-800-KORNET!: Okay, maybe I embellished that translation…


If True, the World has gone Nuts: Israel and Russia Agree to Joint Military Exercises

by John Galt June 13, 2016 19:30 ET *** GRANTED THIS IS FROM DEBKA *** So take this story with a huge grain of salt. However during the meetings in Moscow, the Russian language press did mention that the Netanyahu and Putin agreed to expanded military cooperation in the Middle East to prevent Hezbollah from threatening or attacking Israel (who have now been ordered by Iran to focus on Saudi Arabia). From DEBKAfile on June 10th: First ever Israeli-Russian war game is coming Russian President Vladimir Putin and Israeli Prime Minister…


Will Russia and the Ukraine go to War this Weekend?

by John Galt May 5, 2016 05:30 ET The ongoing small unit skirmishes along the line of contact in the Lugansk and Donetsk Republics has been ongoing since the first implementation of the Minsk accords. The violations are being reported to the OSCE monitors but little if any action has been taken against either side as a result.

Obama to Send 250 More Troops into Undeclared Syrian War

by John Galt April 24, 2016 21:30 ET The United States has declared war on the government of Syria but someone forgot to tell the American people and U.S. Constitution. In May of 2013 I highlighted the games Obama started playing with the Saudis over the Syrian Civil War and the sudden rush of “contributions” some of which appeared to originate from GCC nations. Fast forward to this weekend where suddenly after meeting with King Salman in Saudi Arabia, Obama is set to increase the U.S. involvement in the conflict which…


A Hero in the War Against ISIS that Most Americans Will Never Know

by John Galt March 28, 2016 20:45 ET While the United States U.S. Army Special forces or Navy SEAL teams would do the same thing this individual did, it is doubtful that THIS administration will give him the credit the individual is due in the war against ISIS unless it served a political purpose. The name “Denis Tukhmanov” will not appear on Fox News, CNN, ABC, etc. His name will never be mentioned by the United States State Department, White House, or even allowed to be publicly mentioned by our military…

02.13 Republican SC Debate Drinking Game: It’s the 3 Stooges vs. Trump, Cruz, and “that guy”

by John Galt February 13, 2016 20:25 ET In the real world, you don’t ever want to be “that guy.” The one man that everyone points at. The sore loser. The pouting, pathetic, perceived whiner who blames everyone else for not getting traction in the campaign or votes. In tonight’s debate “that” guy would be: And yes, he really did say that. Meanwhile in GOP establishment land, the Three Stooges are working hard to remain relevant despite no real national buzz about their campaigns nor any real message which resonates with…


02.11.16 18:00 ET: Russia Warns Saudi and GCC Military supporting Rebels in Syria Risks a World War

by John Galt February 11, 2016 18:30 ET This is the kind of news in the old days that would cause gold to jump $100 in 5 minutes, however, since the chicken hawks who date camels are usually all talk and no action when it comes to military affairs unless the United States puts ten times then number of our own troops at risk, the reaction is only notable because of Russia’s stark warning. Via The Daily Star in Lebanon, via various news agencies: Russia warns Gulf intervention in Syria risks…


02.09 Russia, Hezbollah, and Syrian Army Pound Islamist Rebels near Aleppo (VIDEO)

by John Galt February 9, 2016 20:45 ET Thanks to Twitter and YouTube everyone can keep one eye open on the battle for and around the Syrian city of Aleppo and the developing crisis for the Islamist rebels supported by America, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey. With the city essentially encircled and the supply lines from Turkey now cut off, the Russians and Syrians continue to pound the rebels into submission with a strategically well conceived winter offensive which will force submission of the civilian population and probably a surrender and/or slaughter…


The Obama Administration Raises the Stakes as U.S. Military Illegally Occupies Airfield in Syria

by John Galt January 20, 2016 21:00 ET President Barack Obama once spoke of how the Bush administration used the military in an unwise fashion. During a MTV/MySpace candidate town hall on February 2, 2008 Obama said the following: For much of the campaign, Obama has sought to differentiate himself from Clinton by stressing that he was against the Iraq war from day one and, when asked if he would institute a draft as president, he once again used the occasion to put distance between himself and his chief rival. “I…


The Absolute WTF Story of 2015 via Politico-State Dept. Counts Bringing Peace to Syria in 2015 a win

by John Galt December 28, 2015 19:15 ET I thought the Obama stories about declaring Obamacare a success would win. I thought the Crying Game Boehner nonsense had a shot. I thought the stories saying Trump was toast might have a chance. Then today, the website Politico published this absolute piece of propaganda garbage as if Pravda has invaded the State Department and proclaimed today “Mayday” in honor of Communism’s sordid past: State Dept. counts ‘bringing peace’ to Syria as a 2015 win I kid you not. If this headline does…


12.04 BREAKING: Turkey Invades Kurdish Iraq to Allegedly “Train” Kurdish Troops

by John Galt November 4, 2015 20:10 ET With the breaking news tonight that ISIS was indeed responsible for the destruction of the Russia airliner over the Sinai according to UK and US intelligence officials it is only a matter of time until Vladimir Putin sends his long range bombers over Syria to pay a visit upon the capital of ISIS in Raqqa, Syria.

And More Bad Ass Video from Russia’s Attack on Islamofacists in Syria

by John Galt October 19, 2015 19:30 ET Of course, USAF strike video or sadly, Special Forces attacks on Sunni Islamofacists is non-existent; probably because the Obama Regime has ordered them to stand down against real targets.

Of course this one above was just posted above was uploaded today and allegedly from the Syrian/Russian attacks on the ragheads in the suburbs of Damascus which…


09.30 Update on Russian Attacks on Syrian Islamist Targets with Videos
