From intelligence intercepts, confirmed: Last week, Trump did these two things: He began a B52 carpet bombing campaign against civilians in Afghanistan deeply paralleling the actions of Richard Nixon.

He ordered US Navy Seal teams to down a Russian warplane over Syria using advanced ground to air missiles.  An SU 25 was shot down and the Russian pilot died in hand to hand fighting with US backed al Qaeda fighters.

Trump has ordered, in Dier Ezzor province in Eastern Syria, full US support for ISIS fighters remaining surrounded in the desert and in pockets along the Euphrates River.   American air support, including Apache, C130 and A10 aircraft have been turned over as air support for ISIS.

This is confirmed.

Trump’s actions are driven primarily by his deteriorating situation in Washington and the imminent collapse of the US economy.  Dozens of indictments are expected in Washington and Trump has already crossed the line into obstruction of justice, as was predicted long ago.

It is likely that President Putin finally understands that Trump is insane. In the interim, Saudi Arabia has virtually disappeared from the war in Syria, licking its wounds.

Trumps game in Eastern Syria is a strange one.  He is trying to create a military conflict between US backed Kurds, who have traditionally been close to Damascus, and the Syrian Arab Army.  The region being fought over has never adequately been explored for oil resources, nothing published for public consumption.

In Western Syria, the US backed forces are fighting Turkey, who has sent FSA troops, these are Turkish army regular forces dressed in rags and poorly groomed, with little success.  In order to survive, the Kurds need to stay  close as possible to Damascus but Trump is trying to burn that down.

What we believe we are seeing is the usual GOP betrayal of the Kurds, much as George H.W. Bush did after Desert Storm.  The US stood down while Saddam slaughtered tens of thousands of Kurdish civilians.  The US has similarly allowed systematic persecution of Kurds inside Turkey  while arming Kurds inside Iran.  The Kurds will never learn.

The end of this road will be Russia moving its forces back into Syria and leading the way to retake Idlib Province.  That will end the war.

From there on, driving out US forces will be on the table. With no terrorist base to work with, the US will be on its own.  Damascus was always going to settle generously with the Kurds with this exception.  The US has purposefully pushed Kurdish forces into Arab regions of Syria in an attempt to cause continued strife.

Russia, Iran and Turkey, working in concert, will have to address this issue.

In the interim, the US Army and US Air Force are officially at war with Syria on behalf of terror groups.  It used to be an informal agreement, no longer.

  1. Quote from The Washington Times Feb. 8, 2018
    “A professor at Northeastern University in Boston is under fire after he was recorded during a public lecture saying he “wouldn’t mind” seeing President Trump dead.
    “Sometimes I want to just see him impeached. Other times, quite honestly — I hope there are no FBI agents here — I wouldn’t mind seeing him dead,” Barry Bluestone, a professor of political economy, said during a Jan. 31 public event called “The Rule of Law in a Time of Polarization,” Campus Reform first reported.
    “Of natural causes,” he later clarified with the help of journalist Robert Kuttner.
    Mr. Bluestone’s remarks were recorded in a YouTube video uploaded by the school on Monday, but it has since been deleted.
    Mr. Bluestone, who served as the founding dean of Northeastern’s School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs from 2006 to 2012, told Campus Reform that he was not advocating violence against the president.
    “In my opinion, Trump is the most dangerous man on the planet because of his power of using lies and half-truths to galvanize his supporters and his ability to command vast military resources,” he said. “Would I kill him? No. And I normally abhor violence in all forms.”” Professor Bluestone has a Ph.D. from the University of Michigan, 1974.

  2. It is malicious narcissism to take advantage of the Kurds. Of course Trump is suited for it. And the mad dog too, cuz pleasing the master by chasing the stick and begging them to throw it again is what mad dogs do.

  3. Whilst not disputing that Trump is a bit of a loose cannon didn’t he last year hand of the bulk of the military operations to the Chiefs of Staff? I have to wonder just how much of this he knew about in advance, or even what he was told about it.

  4. Gordon Duff, please..

    The ancient elites don’t function after a bipartisan mentality just because 99% of US Americans do. They don’t care about USA so why should they care about “parties”?

    The elites function after the Babylonian Talmud, Ketuboth 11B explains they have no borders, no principles: anything goes. POTUS do not anymore need to sign every strike when war has not been declared, Trump changed that one year ago. Pentagon calls ALL the shots now and fulfill their own written Biblical “prophecy” they will.

  5. Obviously the criminal outlaws in the U.S. would love to be able to blame Putin for initiating WWIII when in fact they, the U.S. provoked it with this shoot down of the Russian plane and so many other aggressive incidents. If VT knows the Navy Seals did this then obviously the Russians also know it too by now. At some point someone must call the bluff of the U.S. outlaws. The propaganda war already erupted again with this chlorine nonsense. Putin could easily demolish the U.S. presence in Syria but that would have little immediate value because it would give them a pretext to level Damascus and possibly a first strike against Russia. The only choices for Putin are to again do nothing and wait it out or make a first strike against the U.S. homeland. I doubt if he would do this at this time despite his evident frustration. This is what happens when one indulges a bully like the outlaw U.S. And Turkey too.
