US and Saudis Suffer Defeats in Syrian Proxy War

Swords_banner

 

Calling it anything else is insane.  America is pouring supplies into Syria and Iraq, to more than simply “moderate extremists.”  Hell, America has set up a base inside Iraq to resupply ISIS.  3000 American soldiers serving in Iraq are out there for the holidays, pouring arms into the hands of terrorists while waiting to be returned home, thanked for their service, and thrown on the trash heap.

 
With 90 percent of the war inside Syria and America flying few and usually no missions there at all, is it a wonder when Russia magically discovered 500 fuel trucks that pour millions of profits into the coffers of John McCain’s friends and business partners.

We are also tired of Raytheon Corporation and their love affair with ISIS and al Nusra.  Their continual supply of missiles to terrorist organizations is not an accident and the management of Raytheon needs to be held accountable and should be arrested, tried and convicted, not just in the US, but Iraq and Syria as well for “material support of terrorism.”

The Ukrainians, Georgians, Saudis, the thousands of Turks, the Kuwaitis and Jordanians, not to speak of the Israeli government, all of whom pour weapons into the hands of ISIS every day need to be held to account as well.
By legal standards established after 9/11, each of these nations is open for bombing, not only of their terrorist training camps and logistic bases but their national leadership as well.  We hunted down Saddam, I think we may have gotten the wrong guy.
Al-Nusra Front Thanks US-Backed FSA for Supplying Anti-Tank Missiles

Al-Nusra Front Thanks US-Backed FSA for Supplying Anti-Tank Missiles

TEHRAN (FNA) The Al-Nusra Front Takfiri terrorists posted a video on the Internet to thank the so-called moderate terrorist group, the Free Syrian Army (FSA), for supplying them with the US-made anti-tank TOW missiles.

A recently released video shows an Al-Nusra Front field commander thanking the FSA commanders for giving his forces TOW missiles.

For several months, the Al-Nusra Front and the FSA have colluded together at almost every single battle in Aleppo, Lattakia, Hama, and Idlib Governorates of Syria and they formed an alliance of the militant groups known as Jeish al-Fath (Army of Conquest).

Thru Jeish Al-Fath, several militant groups like Al-Nusra Front and the Ahrar al-Sham movement have been given access to FSA’s US-made heavy weaponries that have been supplied to the militant group by the US, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

The Al-Nusra Front and the Free Syrian Army are very close to each other as they coordinate on the battlefield and share the same trenches; they even share control over the villages they capture together.

Saudi Arabia sent 500 TOW missiles to Al-Nusra directly last month, but the US claims that it is just supplying aid and weapons to FSA or the so-called moderate militant groups in Syria.

    So let’s see, Ted Cruz’ wife, Heidi, is a Goldman-Sachs executive, a member of the SDA Church, and the author of a North American Union white paper. Don’t worry folks, nothing to be concerned about here.

    why “US”? as in WE didnt do it. its likely 98% of the American People are clueless to the deviate actions by a district of criminals, because they and their controlled media lie.
    they are NOT loyal to US, they sabotaged our economy and destroying our global reputation beyond repair. THEY did it, not “US”, and they did it TO -us-.
    I do get offended at “US this and US that” when THEY are doing all this *)&@$ !!

      Exactly right, they have the populations totally controlled.

    Don’t forget who they all bow down to, for their hand selected wealth and Power, all roads lead to the Vatican, the top of the dean of thieves, the great Harlot of them all.

    April 2000, Edward Pope of State College, PA is held in Moscow under suspicion of espionage. Ed worked in the Applied Research Lab at Penn State in Naval propulsion. He ran a business CERF Technologies International, oh BTW Raytheon has a plant in State College, PA. Wrote a book called “torpedoed” he was a CIA intelligence officer. But was presented in the press during his 253 day “imprisonment” as a ‘businessman,’ you know just an average American guy.

    Why are these 3000 American soldiers following these orders???
    Do they not have the right according the Constitution to refuse???
    This in my book is enabling the ISIS terrorists.
    Shame on them! Shame on America,

      The advisors are assisting the Iraqi army, and it has never said they are not. What they have said is that air units not under command of that group are supplying logitics to ISIL, but it is a grey area as the Saudis, Qatar, and the Israelis have US equipment and can paint a few planes up with US markings is nothing.

    • Worker Bee  November 22, 2015 at 6:55 pm

      Do the US “advisers” on the ground in Iraq (and the 50 in Syria for that matter) report to the “Obama faction” or the “McCain faction” in the Pentagon?

    Excellent reporting here and we just cannot get any of this anywhere else but VT.

    The tide is turning fast against ISIS/ISIL/Daesh/Al Nusra/ Al CIA, Al Xe, etc. Soon they will be eradicated by Russian Federation Air power along with all the oil tankers blasted to shreds filled with stolen Syrian oil. An emergency meeting at the FRS this Monday? Is that to discuss the oil derivatives which will probably soon crash because of this, taking the largest Wall Street banks down.

    Why can’t we get any of this in the American Major Mass media? Answer because all Major Mass media in America is run by six media moguls who are alleged to answer to Vanguard Investment House who apparently just happens to own Raytheon.

    Is that the same Raytheon of E-systems, the folks that have been deeply implicated in many years of high level RICO crime, illegal drugs and serious harassing and sanctioning of any of their whistle-blowers? All done with a wink and a nod of the Pentagon top brass of course who are part of the same RICO crime syndicate which is the World’s largest Organized Crime syndicate?

      “Excellent reporting here and we just cannot get any of this anywhere else but VT.”

      I find the summary reports by South Front to be the most useful in understand the overall situation. But of course, South Front is a VT partner: http://www.veteranstoday.com/author/southfront/

      Good Intel I am just sorry that it is not mainstream to have sites like this and a few others, plus the lectures ought to,be to packed audiences.

      How long till that happens ?

    3 Days of the Condor
    a film favorite….as a fellow former Bell Labs wire picker would say

      Ohh, yesss, greatfull piece of art Gordon! We can understand why all those good artists does not appear since several years in the silverscreen….

  10. Edward Dodge  November 22, 2015 at 8:18 am

    I’m reminded of the John Houseman character in the 1975 film, “Three Days of the Condor”, who was somewhat lamentable about the lack of “clarity” in modern day geopolitics. Thanks for providing some, Mr. Duff.
    Much appreciated!

    Raytheon is along Goldman & Sachs and other as well, one of the shared owners of the US congress, and both Republican and Democrat parties.
