Blockbuster: Russian Satellite Proof, America is ISIS!


[ Editor’s Note 2: Gordon went to the Russian ministry of defense to get the best quality photos, as they are needed to drive home two messages. One is that we have photographic proof of US advisers, Special Ops, or whatever you want to call them seeming to be able to operate inside and/or near ISIS held areas.

Or two, these ISIS held areas can sometimes be SDF people dressed up as ISIS, depending what central casting in Hollywood has called up for the extras to dress as for the day.

But there is a third questions. The Russians have obviously had these photos for days and maybe even weeks now, so why have they been hiding them at this critical stage of the war with the SDF now coming deep into traditional Arab territory in what is clearly and army of conquest now, with the US fully onboard.

With ISIS pushed out of so many areas, and so many of the killed, or “gone to Idlib”, who do we see Damascus showing signs of a shortage of manpower. I watched a video of SAA troops opening an new flank on Saquir Island south of Deir Ezzor. They were using on rubber boat being pulled back with a rope to shuttle troop across a narrow water barrier.

At a minimum then needed two, with the second boat shuttling over the ammunition that is typically needed to sustain and offensive, and especially reserve ammunition to handle counter attacks where running out can be a death sentence.

The ammo boat would also usually be carrying heavy crew manned machine guns, yet I have not seen a single one in any of these crossing videos, nor have I seen any RPG men with their backpacks of triple shot loads with any of these platoons going into combat on the west side of the river.

We thank the Russian command for these photos. Please send more, and send them sooner Jim  W. Dean ]


Editor’s note:  As US and SDF forces “defeat” ISIS near Deir Ezzor, it is now revealed that US and ISIS forces attacking Syrian Army positions are in fact one in the same.  As long suspected, the US is supplying equipment and arms to ISIS, is safeguarding their leaders and fighting a totally phony war while in fact running the ISIS organization.  Were one to say ISIS is commanded by Donald Trump, one would not be making a misstatement of any kind.

The Russian Ministry of Defense has released aerial images which they say show US Army special forces equipment north of the town of Deir er-Zor, where ISIS militants are deployed.

US Army special units provide free passage for the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) through the battle formations of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorists, the ministry said in a statement.

Facing no resistance of the ISIS militants, the SDF units are advancing along the left shore of the Euphrates towards Deir ez-Zor,” the statement reads.


This could mean that the US military staff “feel absolutely safe” in the area which is held by the terrorists, the ministry of defense stated.

Though, the ministry claims to have identified, among others, cars, armored vehicles and tents, it does not provide information on the exact whereabouts of the US troops on the images posted.

All of the images were taken from September 8 to 12. The photos show several Cougar infantry mobility vehicles and Hummer armored vehicles of the US Army special forces, according to the Russian MoD data.

Earlier in September, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov accused the SDF of collusion with ISIS terrorists.

The city of Deir ez-Zor in eastern Syria was besieged by Islamic State in 2014. The Syrian Army, supported by the Russian Air Force, broke a three-year blockade on the city in early September. The city’s liberation enabled convoys to start delivering food, medicine, and other essentials to the city, which previously had to rely on airdrops.

  1. “Were one to say ISIS is commanded by Donald Trump, one would not be making a misstatement of any kind.” – Gordon Duff

    Does Trump really run ISIS, or (to use a Duffism) are those decisions made at a higher pay grade?

  2. Russian airforces inflicted 10 attacks on the targets of terrorists in the Syrian province of Idlib. This was reported by the official representative of the Ministry of Defense of Russia Igor Konashenkov.
    “Over the past day, after supplementary reconnaissance with unmanned vehicles and additional confirmation through other channels, Russian air force planes have struck 10 blows at targets of terrorists in the province of Idlib,” he said.
    According to Konashenkov, it is about militants located far from settlements in the underground, field depots of ammunition, armored vehicles, rocket launcher systems and workshops for equipping “jihadmobiles.” “There are objective control data for all attacks,” the representative of the Russian Defense Ministry said.

  3. It is this kind of superb article that makes VT such a valuable unmatched source. Highest commendations for this fine article.

  4. In many ways Putin is like J. Edgar Hoover. They both loved to collect evidence on people so they could use it against them later to blackmail them.

    We’ve all read of the infamous “Pee-pee” tapes the POTUS is alleged to have had taken with some “professional” girls, perhaps these photos will be used at a later time to embarrass the US when we make a fatal statement that condemns us with a huge lie about this war and how we were not fighting ISIS at all, but supplying them.

  5. The Russians have quite an effective way of dealing with the fake news MSM, the congressmen and military connected with them. When they brazen declare that Russia did this or the U.S. would never do such a thing. The Russians break out the necessary proof to confront their accusers. It’s a smart play as when the evidence is released, at the right time it has a much greater effect. It shines a gigantic spotlight on cockroach criminals before they can scurry off unnoticed back into their respectable safe areas. This is much better than releasing their proof evidence in a haphazard way with no significance to the current issues that are being made significant by being brought up by the real criminals themselves.

  6. Russsia & Syria gave U.S. & Bibi time to fix the situation. They won’t do that again. None of them. So, peace is probably at hand… if Trump & Bibi don’t screw the pooch. 😉

    • As odd as it may seem, I agree with you. Peace might not be “at hand” but close enough, maybe just around the corner.

    • Eduardo: Thank you, maybe. Main computer down; am typing on a slow tablet. So, excuse the double posting.

      You & I are seeing similar stuff. But Russia & PRC are probably saving their big defensive EMG e-warfare stuff for Trump & Co. — if they try to do something super-stupid with Lil’ Kim & Korea.

      The DPRK & Syria stuff are related. Watch how this plays out, which may be… slowly.

  8. It looks today as if there might have been a response to these photos. Some of the most senior Russian Army advisor in Syria, a Major General and two of his colonels were killed in a command post by a ‘precision’ (their words) guided mortar round. Possibly many more, as well as Syrians, were hurt.

    Whether or not it was a response, the Russians are not going to take it very well. Those guys, given their ranks, functions and crucial location, were probably marked out for senior roles in the future. Moscow will be taking this very personally.

    • Yes, unfortunately it was done. We suspect it was a revenge (anglo-saxon style: a knife in the back in the night). It is hard to call coincidence, because there were several factors: locate these high-ranks, highlight the place for attack. Looks like mortar bombing of Russian field hospital in Aleppo. I suppose the payback from Russia will be soon and not necessary for TV shows.

    • Putin’s patience with the Israelis especially must be at breaking point by now and the Russian High Command dogging his heels ever hour for a heavy and fully justified response to the rats and rat lines of all ‘terrorists’ acolytes to the would-be brighter lights of Sandhurst, West Point and the Israeli National Defense College. All these terrorist scum should be blasted out of sight without the need to as much as bat an eyelid. And when the good General Shoygu meets with the Israeli clown Lieberman hopefully he can impress a point or two on how NOT to rile the Russian bear.

    • John, Andrew & USF: Bibi, Rotten-Child & Co. are desperate for larger war & continuation; so, desperate measures.

      Putin, Shoigu & Co. will not necessarily immediately retaliate on this battlefield; but this will cost Bibi & Israel and Trump & U.S. much in the medium- to long-term. IMHO.

    • Paul, my mistake, Lieutenant General Valery Asapov was indeed a 3* he had been promoted about 18 months ago after proving his abilities in UKraine. He was believed to have been the architect of the SAA’s very successful campaign to recover Deir that seems to have caught the US off guard..

      So a double marked man then.

    • This is the first death of so high-rank military person since the Afghan war. Lieutenant General Valery Asapov was a combat officer and had a great tactical experience. Occasional death or not, but we have to admit, that such Big Mil. Stars are always in the zone of the risk. Their task is to co-op and coordinate Syrian troops, as far as Syrian army is not highly professional. And Generals have to be at front-line.

  9. Well you have been saying this for a few years now and this only confirms VT was correct that they’re all joined at the hip, along with the Kurd’s. Excellent work as usual Mr Duff.
