Armageddon watch over Syria

Armageddon watch over Syria

By Gordon Duff and Press TV


“Israel, unable to field credible conventional forces, is attempting to destroy the fighting ability of the Syrian Army through attrition, not simply “shock and awe,” but nuclear, chemical and even biological weapons.”


Experts on arms control policy, confirmed by multiple independent sources, indicate that Syria has been hit, in recent days, by at least four tactical nuclear weapons.

In addition, a Syrian Army brigade suffered massive casualties from a Sarin gas attack.

Not only are these attacks pushing the world to the brink of war but they coincide with a threat against America “from within,” Pentagon, DHS, AIPAC, drug cartels and key leaders of extremist GOP and Tea Party factions.

There is no “Al Qaeda threat,” the whole thing is a deception and cover, which has allowed President Obama to put in place needed defenses against a coup that was only days away.

WMD Use in Syria

The chemical weapons were traced to the Republic of Georgia and delivered to Israeli-led Al Qaeda forces inside Syria by units of the Turkish Army.

Israel, unable to field credible conventional forces, is attempting to destroy the fighting ability of the Syrian Army through attrition, not simply “shock and awe,” but nuclear, chemical and even biological weapons.

Crisis Looming

Last week, IDF Military Intelligence told their American counterparts that Russia had delivered eight nuclear weapons to Syria as a deterrent to further WMD attacks by Israel.

The US contacted Russia though official diplomatic channels. Russia, when asked, denied transferring nuclear weapons to Syria but indicated it had “special weapons” in theatre, with naval and air forces, if their “vital interests” were threatened.

Israel then reached out to Saudi Arabia, asking them to promise Russia a payment in excess of $1 trillion to abandon both their interests in Syria and to work to isolate Iran.

Russia was told they would receive their payment when they introduced a resolution to the Security Council to enact a “no fly zone” over Syria. Israel and Saudi Arabia received assurances that China would not exercise her veto at the Security Council if Russia either introduced or supported the measure.

There has been no leak from Kremlin sources as to the position President Putin will take.

Brinksmanship Diplomacy

The visit to Israel by General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, is an effort on behalf of the Obama administration to curtail what sane voices in Washington see as an attempt to begin a nuclear conflict that would inexorably engulf the planet.

President Obama canceled his scheduled meeting with President Putin in Moscow, not over issues of political asylum for Edward Snowden as reported in the press.

President Obama is facing a powerful domestic threat, reports of a possible military coup. He will not leave the capitol and has sent those he sees as leaders of that effort to bring down the government, Senators McCain and Graham, to Egypt on a “fishing expedition.”

In Egypt, McCain’s crass remarks and unconsidered comments, directly contradicting not just Secretary of State Kerry but angering the Egyptian government, may well undermine McCain’s influence with extremist elements planning to overthrow the US government.

“Songbird” McCain may well have plotted his last.

On the Ground in Syria

Today, a car bomb killed 18 outside Damascus. Al Nusra, the Al Qaeda affiliate trying to topple the governments of Iraq and Syria is credited. However, all intelligence estimates now clearly recognize that Al Nusra is, increasingly, Israeli controlled, particularly after bouts of infighting between factions fighting the government of Syria.

Russia spoke out against this attack, citing foreign-backed militants trying to “burn Syria to the ground” in revenge for the lack of support the Syrian people have given toward “regime change.”

What Russia hasn’t done is speak out against far more serious attacks on Syria, the use of tactical nuclear weapons by Israel, some believed to be launched from above Golan or Lebanon, some from inside Turkey or from submarines off Syria’s coast.

Russia’s lack of a reality-based policy on Syria is as responsible for the current state of affairs as Israeli hubris.

Israeli Collapse

Israel is desperate, under pressure by the US to come up with a peace plan with the Palestinians who, themselves, now “smell blood” and are unwilling to settle for a smile, handshake and knife in the back as they had before.

Israel’s use of nuclear weapons against Syria is far from a demonstration of power, it is a sign of, not just weakness but collapse. Israel is so “forgotten” even the weekly holocaust hand wringing marathons are going unnoticed.

The whole idea behind the victimization hysteria that constitutes the social fabric of Israel is failing.

Israel’s continually changing scenario, always trying to “brand an evildoer,” is no longer having success with Iran. Iran’s newly seated popular government, progressive by Western standards, makes fear mongering by Netanyahu’s Likudist fanatics less than credible.


In early May, Israel lost a Dolphin submarine to a Russian built homing torpedo dropped from a Syrian helicopter. Approximately 48 hours later, Israel hit a Syrian command center with a tactical nuclear weapon.

Video of the attack, when examined by nuclear weapons experts, led to one conclusion. This was a nuclear weapon.

Since then, Israel has lost one F16 with two crewmembers to their S300 air defense system. However, sources indicate that the US, prior to Bush (43) leaving office, had supplied, not only latest variants of Generation III and IV tactical nuclear weapons, yields as low as 10 tons of TNT, some with no residual radiation whatsoever.

This has allowed Israel to attack Syria’s “soft targets” using terrain following missiles that can avoid the S300 radars, which are stretched thin.

Israel has been applying a “full court press,” using every intelligence asset available to defeat the S300 system through tracking the mobile radar and launch systems.

However, based on very limited conventional striking power, Israel has only its newfound mini-nukes, Sarin gas and unconfirmed use of bio-toxins to lash out with.

Official sources concurred and in an interview with Colonel Jim Hanke, former Defense Attaché to Israel, it was revealed that Israel has long prepared for such attacks on Syria, even to the point of carefully mapping target sites in reference to fault lines that lead into Israel.

Were a nuclear weapon or massive penetrator/bunker-buster to be used carelessly, it could spread massive earthquakes across Israel.

Nuclear Confirmations

On August 1, 2013, Israel attacked what they called a “large weapons cache” outside Homs.

In many ways, the attack resembled the Qasyoon mountain attack in early May, an attack that was confirmed to be nuclear, a full mushroom cloud with requisite “ball lightning.”

The Homs explosion was said to be both a fuel depot and arms cache. What was observed, however, was a telltale mushroom cloud, a massive shockwave and an explosion that no munitions expert would ever consider a “secondary blast.”

From an August 5, 2013 article by Jon Snow, posted on the UK Channel 4 blog:

“But the two explosions in Homs and Qasyoon share the same property:

They are both above ground airbursts according to Greg Thielmann, an expert on arms control policy whom I spoke with on Saturday at great length. I was first alerted to the connection by slow twitter chatter right after the bombing in Homs.

Needless to say I was shocked at what he told me next:

‘The fact of the matter is, what we are seeing in both these cases is a tactical nuclear strike, probably by cruise missiles launched from aircrafts near the borders of Syria or right off the coast in the Mediterranean.’

But sure, Greg, wouldn’t this mean a nuclear holocaust? Not so he says. ‘Tactical nuclear weapons lower the threshold on use of a nuclear bomb as their modern incarnation can be tuned in yield in order to target military sites using standoff weapons without escalating by destroy surrounding civilian infrastructure.’”

Snow’s source, highly credible and knowledgeable, indicated that Israel stood ready to deploy its arsenal of five-megaton thermonuclear weapons against Syria’s cities.

Israel believes they are immune to retaliation.

Toward that end, Israel has instructed India to begin border clashes with Pakistan and to put its nuclear forces on high alert.

Only Pakistan could meet an Israeli attack with an overwhelming nuclear response. It is India’s job to tie Pakistan’s hands.

Every base has been covered, the US threatened with coup, the EU financially destroyed, Russia facing an uncertain United States and the chance for a huge financial payday.

People have heard about game theory warfare but few knew the real risks.

  1. Charlotte NC Bill  August 11, 2013 at 5:03 am covered this pretty well…The de-commissioned reactor 4, which blew up, was the smoking gun on this one….an underwater nuke caused the inrush of water…there was no sizeable earthquake-all the bldgs remained standing for instance…and it was used as cover for large cameras installed by Israeli Security co. Magma BSP-which exploded…They were punished for offering to enrich uranium for Iran and sticking-up for the land-raped Palestinians at the UN..I wouldn’t hire an Israeli Security Co. to guard an outhouse.

    Gordon said “President Obama is facing a powerful domestic threat, reports of a possible military coup. He will not leave the capitol and has sent those he sees as leaders of that effort to bring down the government, Senators McCain and Graham, to Egypt on a “fishing expedition.””

    Unfortunately, a military coup against Obama is not going to help the USA. The solution is a military coup that will remove the current resources from the three branches at the federal and state level, and the federal reserve. The removal of think-thank groups, lobbies, and Wall Street and corporate medias’ leaders. The removal of the electronic voting system and a complete freeze for a period determined for trades on Wall Street. The Military needs also to move carrier ships and submarines in the Middle-East to warn those who may use nuclear missiles against the US. And, the military may need to reopen several secrets files to bring the instigators to justice. They must ban cash in politic and allow only taxpayers to finance elections to a defined amount. Later(3 months), they must organize elections for the three branches and move the federal reserve under the Congress. They must also remove officers who jumped to the other sides.

      As the portion of the military involved are under Israeli control as are those of the press and blogosphere that attack Obama for his opposition to Israeli policies….(all opposition to Israel is “imperialism”…

      …perhaps we should change to a subscrition service like others….so that those who pay attention only can read things….

    “President Obama is facing a powerful domestic threat, reports of a possible military coup. He will not leave the capitol…”

    This doesn’t make sense – Obama says that he is going to Sweden instead of Russia the 4th and 5th of September?

    • jackheart  August 11, 2013 at 4:28 pm

      Putin definitely appears to be backpedalling, I’m thinking he’s going to take that trillion. That leaves just China and her ally’s (whatever they may be) and the Hanoi Canary’s coup (which will surly start a Civil War). No doubt there’s going to be a bloodbath of unprecedented proportions but then we really do need one. I was ready to die yesterday. As Patrick Henry said when this nation was born: “Give me liberty, or give me death!” We have to many “Americans” who are not prepared to live and die by this maxim and their apathy is as contagious to their fellow citizens as an anthrax outbreak amongst a herd of sheep. Its time to cull the herd. What America has become fly’s in the face of every value we were ever taught to hold sacred yet not a shot has been fired in anger yet. That just tells me someone’s going to have to do it for us. So as Alice Cooper once said:

      “Hello! Hooray! Let the show begin
      I’ve been ready
      Hello! Hooray! Let the lights grow dim
      I’ve been ready

      Ready as this audience that’s coming here to dream
      Loving every second, every moment, every scream
      I’ve been waiting so long to sing my song
      And I’ve been waiting so long for this thing to come
      Yeah, I’ve been thinkin’ so long, I was the only one

      Roll out! Roll out with your American dream and its recruits
      I’ve been ready
      Roll out! Roll out with your circus freaks and hula hoops
      I’ve been ready”

      We will all meet on the other side of midnight.

    Delusional, Putin believes he can ‘game’ the West by keeping silent on Israel’s use of tactical nukes in Syria, the sinking of an Israeli sub– in the same perverse way Russia has pretended to accept the conventional narrative on 9-11. Russia wants a full partnership in the emergent NWO. The West says no. So the author is right in suggesting Russia’s complicity in the rapidly deteriorating situation surrounding Syria.

  5. Worker Bee  August 9, 2013 at 10:32 pm

    Why is the Israeli use of tactical nuclear weapons and poison gas not being shouted from the rooftops by the Syrian government – something stinks here? And why is Assad letting Syria being picked apart instead of retaliating – massed missile launches at the chemical industry around Beersheva and Haifa and the Dimona nuclear complex would cripple the “$hitty Little $tate”.

  6. denysepez  August 9, 2013 at 7:04 pm

    Yup to bad were still educated enough to realize” Pigs cant fly”

  7. Charlotte NC Bill  August 9, 2013 at 6:26 pm

    The Israelis deserve what their underwater nuke did to Fukushima….what they did to Lebanon in ’06…what they did/do to the Palestinians every day….Pride goeth before a fall…God will use someone as an instrument to punish them!

  8. Charlotte NC Bill  August 9, 2013 at 6:18 pm

    Has there ever been a country as evil as modern Talmudia? I really don’t think so….I hope the bastards get slapped-down…and soon…God smacked, if you will.

    • Christina  August 10, 2013 at 11:21 am

      Jewish Bolshevik Russia and later Soviet Union was also very evil.

    death to Israel death to Zionist NWO pigs

  10. DaveE  August 9, 2013 at 5:20 pm

    I agree with your analysis completely, which I don’t always do, but I think you got this one nailed in its entirety.

    The only wild card I can see is China…… how much are they stalling to keep from making a stance, or how much do they mean it, the part about not challenging Israel’s buy-off of Russia at the UN. They might just “take the money” and do what they want, anyway…..! Hell, Israel would get a taste of its own medicine.

    I don’t think Putin will back Israel for long, however, given his many credible “opinions” about the little sh^%hole. He’s got his own problems with the zionist syndicate in Russia to worry about, so I don’t think he want to “tip his hand” too early.

    The 13th Amendment WAS ratified and would clean house if enforced.

    The Act of 1871 needs to be understood by all Americans and global citizens, it would bring people up-to-speed on how we got where we are.

    Very good comment by Michael Calhoun in FB comments.

    • mommyplayer  August 9, 2013 at 5:29 pm

      My observations were
      1. May 5th Netanyahu travels to China same day as alleged nuc in Syria by ‘Israel’ same day that Russian military ship docks in Israel, same day that China says not one thing and is casual about the bombing. SAME day BBC announces in print and radio that Israel is supporting Al Qaeda, then a day later backpedels that it was only allegedly so.

      2. Netanyahu in approx June announces ending of some Jewish settlements and 3 days later MSM reports it was an error and there will be no reduction.

    • shachalnur  August 9, 2013 at 6:47 pm

      Nuclear strikes or big bombs on prepared targets,making it look like something big?

      And all filmed from several angles at night. Good timing by the filmers.

      Israel hasn’t build another house east of line since Nethanyahu went to China.

      Permits and blabla ,yes,but no building.

      Another good one was the report last week that Saudi’s have sent some Israeli weapons to Al-Nusra in Syria.

      Yesterday a hugh nest of Al-Qaida rats were slaughtered ,and they all had Uzi’s other kosher toys.

      Wow,it didn’t take the Syrian Army long to find them,did someone track the weapons,to make the Israel-Al-Qaida connection look convincing?

      Reality is Al-Qaida is being smoked out in Syria.

      Check out syrianperspective and then blog and spot,Syrian in US with very good sources,foto’s ,names and a good sense of humor,under the circumstances.

    • shachalnur  August 9, 2013 at 5:51 pm


      That’s a lot of questions and off topic,we wouldn’t like to upset Mr.Duff,wouldn’t we…

      There was a very clear plan until a year ago,then Israel found out they were not going to be among Rothschild’s Chosen people.and had to switch to BRICS.

      This plan B always existed ,unless you are stupid enough to believe that the ZioNazi’s in Israel didn’t know who they were serving,and what really happened to Jews in Europe in order to create the Zionist entity.

      Snowden,HSBC and the Guardian ,for instance .are sleepercells for “Deep State” Israel ,that has taking over Israel from the inside since June 2012.

      HSBC(where Adelson has an account as well) is sucking in as much gold as they can for China,Russia and Israel.

      Rothschild will keep pushing for regional war in the Middle East,hoping to blow up everything from Israel up to China.

      But BRICS + Israel (+Egypt+PA+Saudi’s by now probably)will do everything to avoid that,and create pressure on US/GB governments hoping to create a collapse in US/Europe before Rothschild blows them up or sends over some bioweapons(Pakistani Polio in Israel?MERS from camels?OPV vaccine in Israel,prohibited in US and GB,killed and maimed 47.500 children in India).

      “Prince”Bandar didn’t go to Moscow to offer money for Syria control,they made other deals(good theater though),and “Deep State” Egypt is telling the US to take a hike,while Israel drones Al-Qaida in the Sinai.

      My calculations tell me Rothschild will let rip before Sept.6th 2013.

    • mommyplayer  August 9, 2013 at 9:04 pm

      As to MSM reports of Saudi Arabia going to Russia to pay them off to give up Syria. The fact alone, that it was reported, is revealing. It implies that Saudi Arabia is no longer a darling of the MSM via Reuters, Time, etc (ie banking cabal) as: WHY report such a secret event for a cabal member as we know the secret that Saudi Arabia had been a Zionist Partner in the past 911 and Petro Dollar etc? and WHY subject Saudi Arabia to scrutiny over doing such a terrible thing as to pay a country off with weapons sales in order to stage a coup or military invasion behind the back of the UN? This is a slur on Saudi Arabia by the cabal and is revealing in its existance. Plus as said above, the visit by Bandar could be a different content/purpose. Since it was on Press TV and Russia Today it seems they were reporting what the MSM did.

    • shachalnur  August 9, 2013 at 9:38 pm

      Saudi’s bought weapons,lot’s of them.

      In return Russia will cover their backs in case things get out of hand,and will allow them to take care of Egypt.

      Russia wants clear Shia(Iran,Iraq,Syria and Lebanon) and Sunni areas,so Rothschild can’t play them against one another,like they’ve been doing forever.

      For Israel ,PA and Jordan probably one country,3 autonomous states,as a buffer.

      Saudi’s also very worried about MERS,came from Rotterdam,Erasmus University.

      The tip of the proverbial arrow is pointed at the Muslim, Christian, and Jewish Quarters around Temple Mount. One giant conflagration.

    • shachalnur  August 10, 2013 at 9:55 am

      Well spotted,but it’s a sword and it’s aiming at the three religions and the Rock.

      The arrows are aimed at the West(Science,Central Bank,Judges,lawmakers,and Finance ministry)

      Enacting the propheties of all three religions ,people might believe it.

      First Damascus,then Jerusalem,also read Yeshayahu 21:15- (about sword and bow,and the Gog and Magog war in Jerusalem)

      The number 210 all over this diagram points at the 210 years of slavery that come before Gog and Magog,Rothschild made a name change in 1802-1803 that nodoby notices and indicates the beginning of enslaving the Jews.

  13. Excalibur  August 9, 2013 at 12:30 pm

    This is all important information. What puzzles me however is that the US has already undergone a slow motion coup over recent decades. Its financial, media, education, NSA, foreign policy – and now CENTRAL GOVERNMENT – have all fallen to the creeping and insidious enemy. That enemy, lets remember, is now calling the shots in every department. Why would that same enemy wish to make their takeover ‘official’ with an open coup to take over on behalf of israel?

    There is no doubt that the US needs a complete change of its democratic systems from the current two party ‘heads we win – tails you lose’ arrangement. In this system any vote cast merely chooses the lucky management team that will enforce the banker’s agenda – or else. There is no doubt that most individuals in government positions now need to go – and that means the removal from office of all the country’s enemies and all those who have enabled them.

    What the US needs is not a coup but a coup reversal – then to unwind all the harmful ‘laws’ enacted by that enemy – and to start again with a fresh and healthy respect for their original constitution. I believe that (quietly and without mass media fanfare) something similar has happened in Russia under Putin.
