The Coup Attempt against Trump  

Freedom in America Disappearing in Plain Sight.
The Coup Attempt against Trump


The republic was founded “in strict secrecy,” Benjamin Franklin explained. When asked “what have we got, a republic or a monarchy,” he responded “ (a) republic, if you can keep it.”

Today he’d say a coup to destroy it is underway in plain sight, the last vestiges of freedom fading with it – a fascist dictatorship emerging, far more ruthless and dangerous than others in world history.
A terrifying state of affairs exists, a grassroots nonviolent revolution vitally needed to change things directed against both the Hillary and Trump factions. Otherwise all is lost.
Nothing but committed mass activism in the streets like never before can work. Voting is a waste of time. If it could change things, it would be banned. It’s permitted because powerful deep state interests get their way no matter how elections turn out.

Monday, Electoral College members vote. Trump needs at least a 270 vote majority to be elected president. The popular vote is meaningless window dressing. Power brokers choose presidents, not the popular will. On the eve of December 19′s Electors vote, it’s up for grabs whether Trump will get the office he won. If so, will he keep it? Will he serve out his term, run for reelection or be impeached and removed from office.

Wrongfully accusing Russia of hacking America’s election reflects an old-fashioned coup attempt to delegitimize Trump, deprive him of the majority EC votes he needs to take office, or eliminate him another way if he gets them. Never before in US history have things sunk to today’s deplorable state.
Pro-Hillary neocons infesting Washington are behind the coup attempt, including the CIA, NSA, DNI, FBI, DHS, congressional extremists, perhaps some Pentagon generals and admirals, maybe Obama, and the corporate media by hyping anti-Trump fake news and vilifying him mercilessly.

Paul Craig Roberts is right explaining “only a counter-coup,” a popular uprising against pro-Hillary dark forces can stop what’s going on in America.
President-elect Trump is powerless to halt it. He’s being set up to be denied the office he won or perhaps eliminated if able to win an EC majority needed to succeed Obama.

Unorthodox Warfare, “Dirty Wars”, Counter-insurgency:
Unorthodox Warfare, “Dirty Wars”, Counter-insurgency: The Legacy of General Frank Kitson

Army generals unsurprisingly have tended to be remembered best for feats concocted on the battlefield when managing formations of soldiers pitted against similar opposition in an international or a civil war.
But the changing nature of military conflict since the end of the Second World War has seen a diminution of all out wars between massed national armies and an increase in what are termed low intensity conflicts where a national army has to contend with an insurgency.
The wars fought by the fading colonial powers Britain and France to put down insurrections in the post-war period such as occurred in Palestine, Indochina, Malaya, Kenya, Algeria and others, are notable examples. These conflicts provided fertile breeding ground for a type of soldier immersed in the sort of strategies and tactics not imparted in many staff colleges of the time which focused on conventional warfare.

Welcome to Idlib: America’s Model Syrian City. Al Nusra’s New Homeland?
By Ulson Gunnar
Global Research, December 18, 2016
New Eastern Outlook 18 December 2016
A report published by The Century Foundation (TCF), a US-based policy think tank, helps shed light on the inner workings of the small northern city of Idlib, Syria.
Idlib is to the US State Department-listed foreign terrorist organization Jabhat Al Nusra (also known as Jabhat Fateh al-Sham or Al Qaeda in Syria) as the eastern Syrian city of Al Raqqa is to the self-proclaimed “Islamic State” (IS).
It is also home to a wide range of other militant groups cooperating with the terrorist organization, as well as a myriad of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) funded and directed by the US, Europe, Turkey and the Gulf states.
And while great hope resides within statements of US, European and Gulf state politicians, echoed across their respective media platforms for this city’s possible role as an alternative “capital” for an alternative “government,” opposed to the current Syrian nation-state, TCF’s report dumps a cold bucket of water on what was but a spark, not even a flame of hope.
The “Opposition” Exists Solely Through the Support of Foreign Interests
The report titled, “Keeping the Lights On in Rebel Idlib,” describes a city so dangerous and dysfunctional, the authors of the report could not even venture there to conduct their interviews, which were instead conducted remotely from the other side of the Turkish-Syrian border.
The report even admits that the “provincial council” meant to replace the Syrian government remained based in Turkey for years and still maintains an office there today.

Saving Syria’s Children: Tribunal Upholds BBC’s Rejection of “Freedom of Information” Reques
December 18, 2016 By Robert Stuart
Fabrication in BBC Panorama 'Saving Syria’s Children' 16 December 2016
Following a hearing on 24 November 2016 the First-tier Tribunal (General Regulatory Chamber) has dismissed my appeal against the decision of the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) to uphold the BBC’s rejection of my Freedom of Information request for material relating to the September 2013 BBC One Panorama programme ‘Saving Syria’s Children’.
Maybe try a different approach. Failure to meet the standards required of a public funded service in that wrong information was deliberately or seemingly deliberately transmitted to shape public opinion.
Most judges are luciferian freemason oath bound. I expect any that aren't are easily intimidated, blackmailed, bought or eliminated, (much the same as the few traitors that are not freemason MPs). But if enough people make a similar demand for different propaganda broadcasts and publish the result at least public awareness of how the luciferian BBC propanda is disseminated can grow.

The Battle for Syria and the Worldwide Struggle Against Imperialism
By Abayomi Azikiwe
Global Research, December 18, 2016
Historical developments over several decades reveal the two-party complicity in the total war strategy.
This is the second public meeting that we have held in less than a week on the character of the imperialist system and the role of the Left, the nationally oppressed peoples, both in the United States and abroad, along with the working class as a whole, in ending these wars of destabilization, destruction and genocide.
The corporate media and the government-sponsored business-subsidized press have sought to foster the narrative which portrays the role of Washington, London, Brussels, Tel Aviv, Riyadh and Ankara as the states which are seeking the protection of the Syrian people. This could not be further from the truth. It was imperialism that initiated the war against the Syrian people in early 2011.
Both Libya and Syria were attacked simultaneously in an effort to eradicate the remaining anti-imperialist and progressive governments throughout Africa and the Middle East. We witnessed the demonization of former Libyan leader Col. Muammar Gaddafi right alongside President Bashar al-Assad. Resulting from the political characterization by the corporate media are the most aggravated political and humanitarian crises since the conclusion of the Second World War.
An article published on yesterday (Dec. 16) by the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) provides a clear indication that even in the midst of defeat in all the major cities inside the country the western-backed rebels are continuing their provocations against the government and military. The report reads that: “The agreement on evacuating militants and weapons from the eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo city has been suspended after terrorist groups breached it, special sources told a SANA correspondent in Aleppo. The sources said that the suspension of the agreement will remain in place until obtaining guarantees that oblige the terrorist groups to abide by all the agreement’s provisions, stressing on the Syrian side’s full adherence to the agreement and its keenness to end the bloodshed and restore security and stability to the entire city of Aleppo.”

Breaking: Proceedings of California Civil Law Suit Against George W. Bush Et Al

9th Circuit Court Hears Oral Argument in Saleh v. Bush, Et Al.
By Witness Iraq
Global Research, December 17, 2016
By Witness Iraq
San Francisco, Calif. — December 12, 2016 was a historic day, marking the first time that a U.S. court heard argument related to the actions of senior Bush-era officials who were responsible for the planning and waging of the Iraq War.
Circuit court judges Andrew Hurwitz and Susan Graber and District Court judge Richard Boulware (sitting by designation on the 9th Circuit), heard argument that the immunity granted to former President George W. Bush and other officials by the federal district court related to their conduct in waging the Iraq War should be overturned. This immunity was provided in December 2014, resulting in the current appeal.
The judges spent most of oral argument focusing on the nature of the domestic immunity, questioning both counsel for the Iraqi plaintiff, Sundus Saleh, as well as counsel for the United States about where immunity ends for government officials.
The judges will issue their opinion as to whether the immunity should be overturned in the coming weeks.

“I Just Want Truth to Come out”: Syrian Army Captain Tells About Aleppo Victory
“I Just Want Truth to Come out”: Syrian Army Captain Tells About Aleppo Victory. America is Helping the Terrorists
By Sputnik
Global Research, December 17, 2016
Sputnik 16 December 2016
Sputnik got in touch with Captain of the Syrian Army Antoine Abboud, who is currently in the old district of Eastern Aleppo and he shared his side of the narrative.
Earlier in the day, the Russian Defense Ministry said that all eastern Aleppo districts had been freed from terrorists, while some hotbeds of militants’ resistance remained.
“I don’t know what has been happening in the media. I could not watch the television. The soldiers don’t have the internet; they don’t know what is being said. What we do know is that when we came to Aleppo the situation was bad. One of my soldiers was killed,” Abboud said.
He further said that in the Old City there was one woman who got sick. The soldiers called the army doctor and he said that she was in dire need of surgery, “The doctor started the surgery right away in order to save her life,” the captain said.
“People asked us [the Syrian Army] for food, we provided them with food. One soldier was carrying an old man on his back,” Abboud recalls.
Talking about the battle for Aleppo, the captain said that al-Nusra terrorists had been behind the killings of civilians in Aleppo.
“I just want the truth to come out. I don’t know what the internet is saying, what the television is saying. I just care about the truth and we came to help our people,” the captain said.
He further said that the US was helping al-Nusra. “Al-Nusra [Front] has TOW rockets, where could the terrorists get those from? They have American food, American weapons, American medicine etc.” The Syrian Army soldiers found all of this when they came to liberate eastern Aleppo.
He also added that the Al-Nusra terrorists shelled a Russian clinic, in which two Russian doctors were killed.
“Now it has been five years, we did not want to take over the city because there were civilians, <…> women and old people residing in Aleppo,” the captain explained why the Syrian Army was careful in its operation. “There were no Russian jets during last month’s battle,” he added.
Talking about the unity of the Syrian Army which played a role in this liberation, the captain said that, “Syrian Army consists of only Syrians. We are from different cities Aleppo, Damascus, Deir ez-Zor etc but all are from Syrian cities only. I am a Christian, but we have Alawites, Kurds, Sunni, Shia and all of us together are fighting against the terrorists.”

Syria: By Evacuating and Pardoning Terrorists, Is Bashar Al-Assad “Being Too Nice”?

By Adam Garrie
Global Research, December 17, 2016
The Duran 16 December 2016
Contrary to Western fake news, Assad’s approach towards terrorists is deeply humane, some would say overly humane. Here is what we know and what must be answered.
Images of green bus convoys leaving Aleppo have provoked mixed reactions across the world. The coaches are filled with the surrendered terrorists who had occupied parts of East Aleppo prior to its liberation by the Syrian Arab Army.
Far from the fake massacres reported in the Western mainstream media, President Assad and his Russian partners are handling the situation in an utterly humane fashion, perhaps too humane. Assad’s rationale is that in order for Syria to once again be a peaceful and united country, as it was prior to 2011 when Western provocations triggered the current crisis, there needn’t be any Nuremberg style trials for the terrorists who continue to plague the country.

US Stalling Release of Thousands of Torture Photos Worse Than Abu Ghraib

By Kit O'Connell
Global Research, December 18, 2016
Mint Press News 16 December 2016
The ACLU believes one photo depicts “the body of Muhamad Husain Kadir, an Iraqi farmer, shot dead at point-blank range by an American soldier while handcuffed.”
Next month, the U.S. government will return to court again to prevent the release of thousands of photos of military personnel torturing detainees at Abu Ghraib and other sites in Iraq and Afghanistan that have been described as more horrific than the infamous Abu Ghraib torture photos.
It’s the latest round in a protracted legal battle that began in 2004 when the American Civil Liberties Union filed a suit demanding the release of some 2,000 photographs which were withheld by the government after it released the infamous images of Abu Ghraib, the Iraqi prison where U.S. soldiers tortured prisoners.
One photo is said to depict a mock execution, while another reportedly shows the body of a farmer shot who was by an American soldier while he was handcuffed.
The U.S. government has repeatedly argued that the images, which are believed to depict torture at Abu Ghraib and elsewhere in Iraq and Afghanistan at the hands of American soldiers, were so severely disturbing that their release would make U.S. forces vulnerable to retaliatory attack. In April, Eliza Relman, a legal assistant to the ACLU’s National Security Project, rejected this argument:
To allow the government to suppress evidence of abuse is to invite a recurrence of that abuse in the future.

FBI Director Comey and DNI Clapper Cave to Pressure: Now Claim Russia Helped Trump

By Stephen Lendman
Global Research, December 17, 2016
Earlier, FBI director James Comey and DNI head James Clapper suggested no evidence linked Russia to hacking America’s election. Nothing indicates Moscow interfered to help Trump.
America’s deep state puts enormous pressure on officials with divergent views on important issues to come around to its way of thinking.
On December 16, the Washington Post said Comey and Clapper now agree “with a CIA assessment that Russia intervened in the 2016 election in part to help Donald Trump win the White House…”
CIA director director John Brennan said “(e)arlier this week, I met separately with FBI (Director) James Comey and DNI Jim Clapper, and there is strong consensus among us on the scope, nature, and intent of Russian interference in our presidential election” – even though there was none.
No evidence was presented to prove it because none exists. Accusations without credible proof are groundless. No legitimate tribunal would accept them.
Russia DID NOT interfere in America’s election. No hacking occurred. Claims otherwise constitute an effort to continue US hostile relations toward Moscow and discredit Trump’s election victory.

The NATO campaign against freedom of expression
5 December 2016 by Thierry Meyssan
The NATO campaign against freedom of expression
This is a long story which extends over fifteen years. NATO first attempted to silence those citizens who were trying to discover the truth about the attacks of 11 September 2001. Then it turned on those who contested the oficial version of the «Arab Springs» and the war against Syria. One thing leading to another, it then attacked those who denounced the coup d’état in Ukraine. Now NATO is behind the accusations by a pseudo-NGO that the people who campaigned for Donald Trump are Russian agents.
The attacks of 11 September 2001 were followed by a permanent state of emergency and a series of wars. As I wrote at the time, the theory that they were directed by a group of jihadists from a cave in Afghanistan does not stand up to analysis. On the contrary, everything points to the conclusion that the attack were organised by a faction of the military-industrial complex.
If this analysis is correct, the course of events could only lead to repression in the United States and the Allied states.
Fifteen years later, the wound that I opened is still not shut – in fact the opposite is true, given the events that followed. The «Arab Springs» were added to the Patriot Act and the oil wars which followed. Not only does the majority of the US population no longer believe what the government has been telling it since 9/11, but by voting for Donald Trump, it has expressed its rejection of the post-9/11 system.

IMF boss guilty of over-compensating a political ally
La Garde, in charge of the wealth sequential regimes have taken from the British public and given to the IMF was found guilty in the bribe over-compensation case but not punished by the controlled justice system, the probably fellow zionist or freemason judges believing punishment would affect her reputation. Must remember that if I get caught misusing tax funds.

Why is Britain suffering imposed austerity whilst sequential GB regimes gift billions every year to the crook, spy agency and jewish world government proponents controlled IMF private bank?

The treasury (on the orders of the BoE corporation that controls the economy, tax etc.) sends tens of £billions to the luciferian controlled IMF, (the zionists' debt collection agency that is a cudgel used with war and deception to impoverish and subdue countries by imposing loans with penal austerity conditions, the price for losing a war or allowing a crooked dictator into power, or borrowing as a condition for e.g. continued membership of or consideration for membership of the EU corporatist-fascist crooked dictatorship that is controlled by Bilderberg and the private ECFR).
The cost of failure to repay is confiscation of assets esp. mineral and hydrocarbon rich land.

IMF chief Christine Lagarde guilty of negligence

Christine Lagarde, the head of the International Monetary Fund, was negligent in her handling of a long-running fraud case, a French court has ruled.
A special court made up of members of parliament and magistrates announced the guilty verdict on Monday in Paris. But it also said Lagarde won't be fined, serve any jail time, or receive a criminal record.
Speaking on French TV, Lagarde's lawyer Patrick Maisonneuve described the unusual ruling and absence of a sentence as a partial acquittal, but said she may appeal.
Still, the guilty verdict raises questions about whether she can continue in her high profile role at the IMF.
The IMF's executive board is expected to meet shortly to discuss the verdict, a spokesman said. It has been supportive of Lagarde throughout the case.

Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov assassinated in Ankara
Hurriyet Daily News 18 Dec 2016
Russia’s ambassador to Turkey, Andrey Karlov, was assassinated at an art exhibition in the Turkish capital of Ankara on Dec. 19, Russia and Turkey have confirmed.
Karlov was shot by a gun while making a speech at a photography exhibition in the Turkish capital, the Russian Embassy said, adding that it believed that it was a radical Islamist attack.
Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova later announced that Karlov succumbed to his wounds.
Turkish Foreign Ministry has also confirmed Karlov’s death, in a written statement, adding that the perpetrators will face justice for their action.
The ministry designated the attack on Karlov as a "terror organization."
Attacker identified
Accompanied by Health Minister Recep Akdağ and Defense Minister Fikri Işık, Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu later announced that the attacker was a 22-year-old police officer identified as Mevlüt Mert Altıntaş.
Soylu said Altıntaş was born on June 24, 1994, in the Söke district of the western province of Aydın.
The minister also added that Altıntaş had been on duty for two-and-a half years at the riot police unit in Ankara and was a graduate of a police vocational school in İzmir.
Soylu said three more people were wounded in the attack, which he described as "provocation," adding that while one of them was discharged from hospital, the other two injured were being treated in the hospital.
Soylu stated that Altıntaş was 'neutralized' in a special operations police operation at the scene.

Russia, Turkey, Iran to meet in Moscow on Syria
Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, Russian FM Sergei Lavrov and Iranian counterpart Javad Zarif are due to hold tripartite talks on the Syria conflict in Moscow on Dec. 20 to discuss Aleppo and the wider Syrian crisis, an official from Turkey’s Foreign Ministry said.
The Kremlin suggested Turkey, Russia and Iran should come together for a solution, initially over Aleppo, but which could also be enlarged to include other parts of Syria, Reuters quoted a Turkish official as saying.
The official expressed hope that talks would provide an “impetus.”
“[The meeting] will be to understand the views of all three sides, laying out where we all stand and discuss where we go from here,” the official said, adding that it was not a “miracle” meeting but would give all sides a chance to listen to each other.
The official insisted that Ankara was sticking to its position that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad must go for there to be a solution in Syria.
“There’s no way we can have any contact with the Syrian regime,” said the official, denying there had been any secret talks with representatives for al-Assad. “Someone who is the culprit in the death of 600,000 people cannot be a partner for a solution. With the Russians, we agree to disagree on this matter.”

Beware of surprises in the shift to the presidency
December 19 2016
The debate regarding a draft to shift Turkey to an executive presidential system in the Turkish parliament’s constitutional committee is scheduled to start on Dec. 20, with the tension within the ruling Justice and Development Party (AK Parti) and the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) on the rise.
In the bigger picture, the escalation of terror attacks by the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) has put additional pressure on the shoulders of both the government and opposition parties. Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım organized a meeting with CHP leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu and Devlet Bahçeli, the leader of the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), on Dec. 14 following a PKK suicide bombing in Istanbul on Dec. 10 that killed 46 in order to demonstrate “unity against terrorism.” The PKK hit once again on Dec. 17, this time in Kayseri, killing 14 more. When angry crowds in Kayseri started to raid buildings of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP), which focuses on the Kurdish issue, hanging the three-crescent flag of the MHP, Bahçeli had to issue a statement calling on his supporters and everyone to calm down and act with “common sense” in order not to fall for provocations amid fears of a Turkish-Kurdish confrontation that the PKK has been trying to provoke.
This is the additional tension in the political atmosphere.

What is Turkey’s current role in Syria?
The fall of Aleppo has seemingly put Turkey at center stage again in the Syrian crisis. There is much news about negotiations between Ankara and Moscow for the evacuation of the city, and speculation about the summit proposed by President Vladimir Putin in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan, which aims to bring representatives of the Bashar al-Assad regime together with representatives of opposition groups.
Analysts are noting of course the absence of the United States, the European Union and the United Nations in the current talks between Ankara and Moscow. The Islamist support base of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) appear happy over this turn of events, given their disdain for the U.S., the EU, and the U.N.
The fact that Turkey is cooperating with a power that enabled the downfall of Aleppo and assisted in the perpetration of what many see as war crimes in the city is apparently lost on them. Ironic as it may be, given Moscow’s committed battle against fundamentalist Islam, “Better Russia than the West” is a slogan that one comes across a lot among our Islamists.

NORTHERN IDLIB: Despite an agreement to facilitate more evacuations from East Aleppo in exchange for a serious lifting of the terrorist siege around the two Shi’i Towns of Faw’ah and Kafarayyaa, which anticipates the transportation of 4,000 citizens in need of medical treatment, the terrorist atheist devil-worshipers opened fire on a bus leaving Faw’ah destroying it before it could reach those in need. This is the 5th bus destroyed by the British-supported terrorist savages. So much for Wahhabism and the British.

Image: Children in Faw’ah gather around a makeshift heat source in the dead of a Syrian winter thanks to Obama and his limey trash friends. (Photo credit: Alalam)

ALEPPO: Even the Syrian, Russian and Iranian governments are not talking about the fact that over 11 American special forces operatives working for the CIA, and 2 retired British SAS terrorists functioning as “independent contractors” originally injected during war criminal Cameron’s tenure, along with over 30 Turkish military elements, are still stuck in East Aleppo with no credible opportunity to leave. There was an earlier attempt to sneak them out of the city when they were dressed up as civilians and mingled with earlier groups of evacuees. That failed when the SAA-MI people checked everyone’s identification and spoke to many of the citizens in Arabic, a language most or all of the American buffoons never mastered. Now, the evacuation is taking on a more mysterious, nay, critical character: how to engineer the foreign agents’ withdrawal without handing the Syrian government a public relations triumph. Another fear is that the agents will be lumped together with the remaining foreign rodents inside East Aleppo where their fate will be sealed as the army is planning a final push in to Sukkari to eradicate every trace of the Chechen, Albanian and Uigher vultures still inside.
The evacuation is proceeding fairly smoothly with hundreds of citizens asking to remain in exchange for amnesty, which, by the way, is being granted quite liberally at present. Young men of military age are being separated from their families to determine several facts: Are they draft dodgers, in which case, they are offered a chance to complete military service or face jail; are they knowledgeable about terrorists inside the city? Are they wanted criminals? Once they have passed their test, all are sent to their families without further discomfiture. This is the reason why the propaganda outlets in the West are carping about young men “disappearing”.

VT: Updated: Syrian Special Forces captured 14 US Coalition officers captured in Aleppo
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
British 16
French 21
Israeli 7
Turkish 62
The list of 14 names leaked by a Syrian MP are not the real names of those officers, they are cover names; it is standard practice to use a fake ID when serving in a secret op. This is a leak that MSM is ignoring, as they have about all stories of captured foreign officers in Syria. But then Syria has been quiet, also.
From what we can see so far, getting these foreign officers out was rolled into the ceasefire/evacuation deal to get the jihadis out in order to prevent further Syrian casualties and more damage; furthermore, Syria and Russia just wanted to get it over with. The Russians have already moved for a full and immediate ceasefire and the start of all-party political talks.
Russia is determined to get all the involved parties to the table and get those talks going, therefore they were not going to let the capture of some officers screw things up. We will see what the reaction is to getting the talks going. After that we will be watching closely to see if TOW and MANPAD missiles show up on the battlefield soon as part of a new terrorist offensive.
And finally, Trump will eventually weigh in and he is a wildcard for sure. …Gordon]

I don’t think anyone is fooled anymore by the West. Nor are nations in most parts of the world cowed the way they used to be. The Russian-Chinese-Iranian axis is quickly becoming the dominant force in the world today as resource-less Europe wanes and the special dollar status of the heavuly indebted U.S. evaporates. The U.S. mantains a strong military, but even the latter’s technological edge has diminished.
Yes, the key battle for control of the Middle East was in Syria, and the West lost. Soon the regional blowback will begin.

Putin seems to think he can work with Erdogan to “fight terrorism”. And he thinks the next step in Syria should be a nationwide ceasefire. If he truly believes this, he is out of touch with reality. Maybe what is going on with the evacuations will change his mind.

And here follows the video of NATO backed al Qaeda terrorists burning the busses near Kafraya & Fu’ah.
Should Kirby be asked about it he will say he has no credible information and most likely it is Assad that has done it to blame the good al Qaeda terrorists.
An ancient saying says “The only bad thing about burning your bridges behind you is that the world is round”. Every single sin NATO countries are doing in Syria, it will get back to them, soon.

Canthama what is the situation in Idlib? Will it be as hard as liberating Aleppo. Though i realise the city is much smaller than Aleppo? What is the topography of the Idlib country side?

david, it will be tough, there should be not doubt about that, too many fanatical al qaeda folks with local support.
Some facts to think about though:
1) border with Turkey is the big issue, the turkish regime supports muslin brotherhood/al Qaeda in Syria strongly, and will do anything for them. So controlling the remaining border in Lattakia and Idlib with Turkey is a must.
2) When enough forces are lined up it is hard to stop the SAA and allies, we saw that in the southern Aleppo offensive when they fought against the very al qaeda terrorists.
3) There was unconfirmed info that the terrorists in Idlib and Aleppo spent 75% of their heavy weapons (tanks, BMPs and howitzers) in their two failed attempts to storm western Aleppo and northern Hama. This info must be taken with care, but it is reality that the terrorists spent a large amount of armoured vehicles, but they continue to have lots of TOWs etc…
4) Maybe because of item 3, taking the fight to Idlib may not be priority at the moment vs taking eastern Hama, central Homs and connect western Syria to Der ez Zor and the clean up of East Ghouta.
I believe that there will be some sort of an offensive in southern Aleppo and in in the Anadan plains, it makes sense and would be important prior to storm Idlib, and when it happens it will in the direction of Taftanaz helibase, meaning el Eis will be on the menu first, that will guarantee that the forces will get closer to Kafraya and Fu’ah.

Regarding my post above:
Margaret Sanger’s Democrat party now supervise over mass abortions implemented in African-American urban centres.
The same party that founded the KKK to kill blacks and anti-racism Republicans.

Can’t vouch for this site but it points to a second source for a claim of NATO officers being caught:
In addition to Voltaire.net, the other original report was provided by Damascus-based Syrian journalist Said Hilal Alcharifi. According to Alcharifi, captured “NATO” officers were from a number of member states including the US, France, Germany and Turkey, as well as Israel. Here is his statement (translated from French):
“Thanks to information received, Syrian authorities discovered the headquarters of high ranking western/NATO officers in the basement of an area in East Aleppo and have captured them alive. Some names have already been given to Syrian journalists, myself included. The nationalities are US, French, British, German, Israeli, Turkish, Saudi, Moroccan, Qatari etc. In light of their nationalities and their rank, I assure you that the Syrian government have a very important catch, which should enable them to direct negotiations with the countries that have tried to destroy them.”
The English version of Voltaire-net had only a short report:

Robin Morritt
Alchafiri looks a lot more plausible to me. The UN is 100% pro-terrorist, they wouldn’t give a stale sandwich to a liberated Syrian, so the harder they try to mount a rescue mission, the bigger the dirty secrets they are trying to cover up.

This list is for those that are friends of Syria (except for the trolls) but we all come from different walks of life and have different motivations to be on this list. One step away from the victory on the battlefield and the conflicts among us break out. In fact, I salute Mieszko I, when he questions Muslim Dude: what are you doing in Britain and not helping your homeland, Pakistan to develop? Legal or illegal, why this concept of immigration to the West? Why not immigration of the whites to the Third world? Equalizing the race component? Which way? In other words, downward? Of course, the whites made the history for the last 2,000 years. Their crimes notwithstanding, the whites moved the human world from wood based technology to rocket science and we can move us all back into the stone age, if we choose to. At least up to this minute.
Yes, Muslim Dude, Margaret Sanger was no friend of the blacks. What you are saying, in other words, is that Assad should share his home with the Salafists, with whom he is incompatible in the most fundamental ways.
Many of us support Syria because we support Russia, because we support any hope that this neo-feudalism of the AngloZionist power elites does not enslave us all. We wish no mass homogenization to the lowest common denominator. We don’t want to all become mulattoes and pigs in a pen. For all we know, Russia offers the last hope.

So 12000 troops took back a city of a million people while also defending 10 other fronts. I could live with that… Only Syrians were used to take back the city, rest were all auxiliaries in blocking positions and not involved in combat. I bet even the US could not match such a feat. We saw thm in action in fallujaha. It must be the hoomos in their diet.. makes for strong soldiers. Maybe US should pack hoomos with their rations.

It was a very smart move because a very large number of troops can also cause large problems (logistic, money, unreliable).
Now Syria will call in reserves and finish the job.

@Anti-Jihadist, @Canthama,
As predicted the next target for the SAA will indeed be Idlib.
Here are some extracts from this article:
Idlib is likely to be Syria’s next bloody theater as Aleppo falls
Asked where he will turn to next, Assad has suggested his first priority, after fortifying the area around Aleppo city, would be Idlib.
“Identifying which city comes next depends on which city contains the largest number of terrorists and which city provides other countries with the opportunity to support them logistically,” he told Russian media outlets in an interview in Damascus this week.
“Currently, there are direct links between Aleppo and Idlib because of the presence of Jabhat al-Nusra inside and on the outskirts of Aleppo and in Idlib,” he said, a reference to the al-Qaida affiliate, formerly known as the Nusra Front, now the Fatah al-Sham Front. He added that the decision about what comes next will be made through discussions with his Russian and Iranian allies.
The government’s loss of Jisr al-Shughour, in the westernmost corner of the province, and with it the whole of Idlib province, in the summer of 2015, was what prompted Russia to intervene to shore up Assad’s forces, eventually turning the war’s momentum back in his favor.
Access to the Turkish border means virtually everything is available in Idlib — including weapons and other supplies.
Yezid Sayigh, a senior fellow at the Carnegie Middle East Center in Beirut, said a major point in the Idlib battle will be the role that Turkey will play, since the opposition survives on continuous replenishment of supplies from Turkey.
He added that if Turkey decides for various reasons — perhaps as part of an understanding with Russia — to reduce that assistance, then the Turkish border with Idlib would become like the Jordanian border with Daraa, where the armed opposition has very little ability to take independent action or to survive in the long run.

A photo essay by Russian reporter/phortographer Ivan Sidorenko on the state of play in the vicinity of the T-4 airbase. Main points:
i) The area has recevied significant snowfall. Both sides have a shortage of winter clothing. The fighting conditions look particularly harsh.
ii) The Syrians have started to mount their eight-sided ATGM dazzlers on technicals as well as tanks. This means the Syrians have sufficient production capacity to manufacture them in quantity.
iii) SYria is planning a mass mobilisation soon. The recently trained troops will be used to replace th experienced troops in the safer positions allowing the experienced troops to be focussed on key points. Presumably the lesson of the downside of such deployments at the front, as seen around Palmyra, has been learned.

Around 50 buses full of militants, their families and some civilians have left Eastern Aleppo and reached the militant controlled Rashideen in Western Aleppo countryside.
Amongst those who left was Bana, a seven year old twitter sensation, whose mother mostly controlled and wrote from the account.

Sabotage Of East-Aleppo Evacuation Is Part Of A Plan

MoA December 18, 2016
Update (Dec 19, 0:00 EST):
The culprits of the bus burning were "rebels" from Ahrar al-Sham and Jund al Aqsa. Both are favorites of the CIA and Turkey and in Idleb governate aligned with and under the military command of al-Qaeda.
After Turkey put heavy pressure on the groups it somewhat controls the evacuation deal is, for now, back on. The first exchange bus run occurrs right now. I expect a new sabotage attempt to jeopardize the deal.
Turkish media claim that Shia inhabitants of Fu'a and Kafraya burned the buses or that it is unknown who did it. Video and pictures proudly posted by the Takfiris themselves show that these radical Sunnis did it.
End-Update - original post follows:
The removal of defeated al-Qaeda fighters and their families from east-Aleppo has been on and off for several days now.
The agreement between Turkey and Russia on which the evacuation is based stipulates the parallel evacuation of wounded people from the al-Qaeda besieged Shiite village Fu'a and Kafraya in Idleb province. Note that neither the U.S. nor the (partisan) UN were involved in these negotiations.
The process was interrupted on Friday after al-Qaeda fighters in east-Aleppo opened fire on evacuating civilians. In parallel buses moving into Fu'a and Kafraya to evacuate the wounded were held up by al-Qaeda aligned groups in the area. Opposition claims that Hizbullah fighters was killing people that were evacuating from east-Aleppo were, according to a BBC producer, lies.
The agreement and evacuations were put on again and proceeded this morning after some new negotiations with unknown additional terms. The movements were to take place in strict parallel. Any move out of east-Aleppo on the government provided public buses would only happen at the very same moment that the wounded would move out of Fu'a and Kafraya on similar buses.
Today's evacuations were again sabotaged by al-Qaeda forces:
Several buses en route to evacuate the sick and injured from two government-held villages in Syria's Idlib province have been burned by rebels.
The convoy was travelling to Foah and Kefraya, besieged by rebel fighters.
Pro-government forces are demanding people be allowed to leave the mainly Shia villages in order for the evacuation of east Aleppo to restart.
Thousands of people are waiting to leave in desperate conditions, reports say.
Al-Qaeda gangs themselves provided video of the bus burning. The bus drivers were likely murdered which pretty much guarantees that no further buses will come or go.
I doubt that this is a solely al-Qaeda induced incident. It seems to me that the certain U.S. forces (aka the CIA) are trying to prolong the removal of al-Qaeda from east-Aleppo for their own purpose.
Just yesterday even the Washington Post (again) reported on the years long collusion between the CIA and al-Qaeda in Syria:
The CIA meanwhile continued to push a program that targeted Russia and its Syrian and Iranian allies — and helped shield Jabhat al-Nusra.
There are several "western" groups that want to keep the evacuation stalled to continue their anti-Syrian, anti-Russian and anti-Iran agenda.
The U.S. administration is miffed that it was kept out of the recent negotiations. It wants to demonstrate that any negotiations without its participation will not have any positive result.
The hundreds of "last video from Aleppo" of "Bana" and other propaganda creatures claiming to be there look like a highly coordinated Information Warfare campaign. The "Stand with Aleppo" campaign in the U.S. was started and is propelled by a Democratic party operative who is also CEO of a public relations company and "strategic affairs consultant" in Chicago, Becky Carroll. Its aim is to escalated the situation in Syria.

World better not pry into how we decide to pull trigger on someone – ex-chief of Mossad
By Jim W. Dean, Managing Editor on December 19, 2016
… from Russia Today, Moscow
[ Editor’s Note: It’s always a treat to get an interview with these ex-Mossad chief’s as they have a history of being very outspoken, which we rarely see among the Western ones. The only thing we get better than this is something like the rare gem The Gatekeepers amazing documentary where the filmmaker Dror Moreh got the ex-Shin Bet heads to interview about their handling the occupation with its stunning revelations.
At VT we sometimes have had personal contacts at this level, but not the freedom to make films about them or print interviews, so we like to share what we find that has been, where you get to read gems like this:
“I mean that intelligence is not a science. I believe that intelligence is an art, and therefore, just as there’s no orderly way to paint a picture, so there’s no orderly way to carry out intelligence, because every intelligence operation is an operation in itself, and one operation does not compare or is similar to any other.”… Jim W. Dean ]

In a world where terrorism can strike at any moment – where terrorists resort to stabbing, ramming attacks, and mass shooting – no one is safe from the threat of extremism. Recent terrorist attacks in Europe highlight the need to ramp up security – and many are pointing to Israel as a model. Surrounded by hostile countries and conflict zones, Israel has managed to contain the extremist threat.
The Israeli Mossad is one of planet’s top intelligence agencies and is known for its relentless pursuit of terrorists. How does Israel’s mighty intelligence apparatus work against terrorism? How can peace be kept in a country where the enemy is waiting around every corner? We lift the lid on the counter-terrorism methods used by one of the world’s top spy agencies with a former director of the Mossad – Efraim Halevy.

VT: A Century of Treachery
By Michael Shrimpton on December 18, 2016
This month marks the centenary of the disastrous decision to set up the Cabinet Office. Created from the secretariat of the Committee on Imperial Defence, the organisation was the brainchild of the Imperial German Secret Service, specifically its notorious head Max Warburg.
The idea was to concentrate power in Whitehall in one organisation and put a German spy in charge. Max didn’t have enough assets to control every government department, and with dispersed power there was too much of a risk, from our community partner the Hun’s perspective, of ministers actually being able to control their departments.
The Hun’s choice as Cabinet Secretary was the pedophile Maurice Hankey, known in the trade as ‘Hankey panky’. He had been supplied with young boys to abuse for some time prior to December 1916 and was completely under Max’s thumb. Although Hankey failed in his first objective – to lose World War 1 – the bastard was instrumental in driving up British losses and transferring technology to Germany.
He was also successful in reducing the size of the Royal Navy after World War 1, and transferring British carrier and aircraft technology to Japan. His intention, obviously, was to sacrifice Malaya, Singapore, India, Australia and New Zealand to Japan. No doubt he also hoped that the Imperial Japanese Navy would defeat the United States Navy in the Pacific. Thankfully he lived long enough to see the Good Guys thrash the Japs in the Battle of Midway.
Evil, supercilious and a fluent liar (making him the ideal Cabinet Secretary, some would say) he made sure that German Intelligence continued to control the Cabinet Office for decades after his welcome retirement in 1938. His protégés continued to run the organisation until Burke Trend stepped down in 1973. Trend was partly responsible for Britain’s disastrous entry to the EEC. Totally opposed to the idea of democracy, he masterminded the abortive 1968 military coup, which was designed to install Lord Mountbatten as military dictator, the intent being to take us in to the EEC.
Hankey and his successors were also desperate to wreck the British economy, in which endeavour they were largely successful. Having suppressed knowledge of German-controlled offshore high-yield trading programs, which drove up the money supply and hence inflation, they encouraged strikes and held back infrastructure development, then duped idiot ministers into announcing cuts!
The Cabinet Secretary in World War II, Sir Edward Bridges, was a fink, no offense intended, who should have been hanged, nicely of course, after organising the Halifax-Hess Coup of 1941. In fact Bridges was even more of a fink than our community partner Oberst Johannes Fink, of the Luftwaffe’s II. Fliegerkorps. Herr Oberst would have been a much more enjoyable dinner companion than Bridges.
Where infrastructure spending could not be stopped, the Cabinet Office co-ordinated attempts to reduce its economic value. They were behind the ridiculous decision in the 1960s to impose a 70 mph speed limit on Britain’s new motorways. The Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Transport duped Barbara Castle into bringing in the new limit. I liked Barbara, but she knew nothing about motoring and lacked the competence to drive a motor vehicle. Easily house-trained, with respect, she was the perfect Civil Service dupe. They loved her.
To read Wikipedia, speed limits in Britain are set to reduce accidents, for environmental reasons and to improve fuel efficiency. As with almost any policy-related Wiki entry this is nonsense on stilts. The primary purpose of Britain’s absurdly low speed limits is to slow down traffic and hence the economy. Each mph by which average traffic speed can be reduced costs the British economy about $3 billion a year.
Since slower speeds also mean higher density for a given stretch of road, lower speed limits outside urban areas usually mean more accidents, deaths and injuries. These are seen as a bonus by the Cabinet Office.
