Liker du ikke “den amerikanske måte” så bare gå herfra og fortsett med ditt eget liv, og la meg være i fred (Billy Joels “This is my life“) Den amerikanske måte er noe helt annet enn det John F. Kennedy stod for, som Billy Joel kanskje hadde i tankene.
Den forrige våpenhvilen i Syria var til for at alle de av verdens nasjoner som var involvert i sponsingen av terrorister (IS m.fl.) i kampen for å få fjernet Assad fra makten for å tak i naturressurser i landet, skulle få trukket tilbake sine soldater (terrorister) og få bevæpnet dem på ny, for å sende dem tilbake til Syria, Irak og andre steder hvor de kan gjøre “nytte” for seg
[ Editor’s Note: Mr. Engdahl brings us a top to bottom review of the energy wars behind much of the Mideast turmoil that we have been experiencing. VT has editorialized extensively that we see international crime as the main engine behind the current terror proxy wars and the New Cold War.
There are no national interests at stake because the multinationals that make all the money on controlling energy supplies, markets and transportation do not have their respective countries listed as beneficiaries, but their stockholders.
Some of these offshore deals avoid taxation by using subsidiaries that never touch the US, so there is no “trickle down” effect. The US military and government resources are put to work for private offshore companies’ profits, which can flow directly into the pockets of the friendly politicians via Super PACS that allow unlimited funding to keep them in office, a legal form of bribery.
Any honest person running for office and not willing to jump into this game-of-snakes business finds himself at a serious disadvantage in funding a challenge to any incumbent, 90% of whom are re-elected, as new Congressmen have to start at the bottom of committee assignmentspriority.
That is done by seniority, so voters swap a more powerful rep for a new one, who gets training wheels to start until showing that they know how to play ball.
Pay close attention to the dates William has provided below, as they are key to following the dot connecting with what else was going on at the time, especially the gas pipeline war through northern Syria and Aleppo, where that battle continues on even during the current ceasefire, compliments of the US “good terrorist” factions… Jim W.

– First published … September 18, 2016 –
In a fundamental sense the entirety of the five-year-long war over Syria, as well as the entire Arab Spring from Libya to Egypt to Iraq has been about control of hydrocarbon resources – oil and natural gas – and of potential hydrocarbon pipelines to the promising markets of the European Union.
Dick Cheney’s 2001 War on Terror was primarily about providing the excuse for a direct US military takeover of the vast oil fields of Iraq and other key Middle East countries.
Washington’s War on Syria has been less a war for control of oil. Rather, it’s about who controls whose natural gas flows via which pipelines through which borders to the vast EU gas market.
At this point it looks more and more as if Russia’s geopolitical and geo-economic strategy is trumping (no Donald pun intended) Washington’s very troubled game in the region. Turkey is apparently deciding to become a key ally in this Russian energy trump.
At the beginning of September Turkey’s Minister of Energy, Berat Albayrak met the CEO of Gazprom Alexei Miller in Istanbul for talks about reviving Russia’s mammoth Turkish Stream natural gas pipeline from Russia, under the Black Sea to and through Turkey to the border of EU member country, Greece.

Obama’s balkanization plans devastated Syria
By Jim W. Dean, Managing Editor on January 20, 2017
If anyone had supported “moderate rebels” like this inside the US, we would have nuked them?
US President Barack Obama’s failed policy to “Balkanize” Syria through a proxy terror war led to the devastation of the Arab country, says an analyst in Atlanta.
Jim Dean, the managing editor of Veterans Today, made the remarks while discussing the outgoing Obama administration’s recent sanctions against the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
The sanction targeted the Syrian military, 18 government officials and a tech company; all accused by the US State Department of developing and using chemical weapons.
Will this Syrian ceasefire die like all before it?
By Jim W. Dean, Managing Editor on January 2, 2017
Western media almost never protested the Jihadi indiscriminate killing of civilians in Aleppo
[ Editor’s Note: I had said at the beginning of the first Syrian ceasefire after the Russians came in that the goal of the West and the Gulf States is to try to win in the negotiations what they had not won on the battlefield.
Syria officially reveals data about foreign Intel officers in Aleppo
By Jim W. Dean, Managing Editor on December 20, 2016
[ Editor’s Note: When I did my Debate Show yesterday at the studio, they caught me flatfooted about the Syrian Ambassador confirming the story of the 14 US coalition Intel officers in Aleppo, but not about the original story that they had been captured.
We may never know if the capture story was true or a psyop to sweat those trying to get them back. Our report from our own sources of a much larger number that appears to have gotten out, especially the large number of Turkish ones, which might have been key in getting Erdogan on board the three-way peace talks held today, with its strong closing statement… Jim W.

Updated: Syrian Special Forces captured 14 US Coalition officers captured in Aleppo
By Jim W. Dean, Managing Editor on December 17, 2016
… from SouthFront
[ Update 19:42 US EST: We have some confirmation on this from our own Syrian sources. The numbers are much higher than just the 14 names released by the Syrian MP via Facebook. That report of 14 officers might be a different group, as it had specific names.
My report has only the numbers and nationalities…and the news that they were not really “captured” but were allowed out as part of a deal between all parties involved. You see the Moroccans and Saudis are missing in these numbers.
No. of American officers is 22
BREAKING: Terrorists begin to leave Aleppo in buses and ambulances
By Ian Greenhalgh on December 15, 2016
The Russian Defense Ministry announced on Thursday afternoon that the first group of militants, including 1,500 armed men and their families, left Eastern Aleppo on buses and ambulances under the ceasefire agreement.
[Editor’s note: 5,000 terrorist fighters are being allowed to evacuate from Aleppo.
This means that they will be recuperating in Turkey before being resupplied, re-armed and re-equipped then returned to the fight somewhere in Syria or Iraq.
They will be provided with the latest MANPADs and TOWs by the US, Saudi money will buy shiny new pickup trucks for them, Israeli, American, British and Turkish advisors will retrain them.
All this means that they will have to be defeated all over again, at the cost or more Syrian, Iraqi and Iranian lives, both soldiers and civilians; more Russian bombs and missiles will need to be used against them. The Russians did not let the German 6th Army escape from Stalingrad to fight again, neither did they let any rebels escape Grozny in the last Chechen War; therefore we have to ask why these terrorists are being allowed to escape from Aleppo?
No doubt there are deals in place and the Syrians and their Russian allies are getting something in return, most likely the freeing of a large number of Syrian hostages. Turkey is taking credit for having negotiated the ceasefire that is allowing these terrorists to escape.
So while the fall of Aleppo is a good thing, it is not the end of the war in Syria. To quote Winston Churchill:
Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.
It remains to be seen what the next phase of this interminable war will be, it is hard to predict because of all the outside forces controlling the proxy forces doing the actual fighting. Iran and Russia stand behind the Syrians; arrayed against them are the US, NATO, Israel, Turkey and Saudi Arabia, via their proxy mercenary armies. Ian]

Where were You When the Anti-Christ Came?
By Katherine Frisk on August 22, 2016
On the Road to Damascus
Pictures of the execution in the city of Mansoura west Raqqa
The anti-Christ is here. Did you know that? Most people don’t. They are far too busy surviving, dealing with their own problems and when they do have time off, the last thing that they want to do is look the devil in the face.
Any news reports that they do watch are either lies or have been doctored to make them acceptable to western sensibilities. Watching evil in action and in your face is more than most people can absorb or accept.
Where was I when the anti-Christ came? Living in a small seaside town, in the middle of nowhere at the bottom of Africa. There are very few people here that I can talk to, very few who can even begin to understand.
How can they when the most pressing issues in their lives revolve around dog pooh on the beach, whether to put the local population of free roaming zebras who walk through the centre of town at midnight into an enclosed reserve ( they did, they are gone forever now), or how to stop the monkeys from raiding peoples gardens. Starving them out seems to have been the general consensus. Shooting them upsets the children. And then there is that poor plant that is declared “invasive species of the month?” that sits lost, forlorn and without water in a pot in front of the local supermarket like some criminal in stocks waiting for the next blow.
Jeg er så dødslei av å snakke for døve ører i år ut og år inn. Det er jo samme “smørja” oppatt og oppatt bare med nye aktører, men samme kilder. Trump får fortsette der Obama slapp, mens media tar seg atter en “nap”. Høyt henger de, og sure er de (reven om rognebærene), før han sa: “Når enden er god. er allting (alt) godt…” mens han ble flådd.
Hvor er reven, sa du? Den eneste reverenden jeg vet om her i denne sone, er meg selv. Pussig i grunnen.
Joh. Åpb. 12
7 Da brøt det ut en krig i himmelen: Mikael og englene hans gikk til krig mot dragen. Dragen kjempet sammen med englene sine, 8 men de ble overvunnet, og det fantes ikke lenger plass for dem i himmelen. 9 Den store dragen ble kastet ned, den gamle slangen, han som kalles djevelen og Satan, og som forfører hele verden. Han ble kastet ned på jorden, og englene hans ble kastet ned sammen med ham. 10 Og jeg hørte en høy røst i himmelen som sa:
«Nå er seieren og makten og riket fra vår Gud kommet,
nå har hans Salvede herredømmet.
For anklageren er styrtet,
han som dag og natt anklaget våre søsken
for vår Guds ansikt.
11 De har seiret over ham ved Lammets blod
og ved det ordet de vitnet,
og de hadde ikke livet så kjært at de ikke ville gå i døden.
