CENTRAL ESTABLISHMENT GLOBAL STRATEGY

by James Hufferd, Ph.D.
Coordinator, 911 Truth Grassroots Organization

<<<>>>

It’s high time to forego talk about U.S. foreign policy and start speaking instead of central establishment global strategy. Because, with the preponderance of power and influence in the world exercised by the central financial establishment and its minions and operatives, who control and wield by far most of the world’s wealth, liquid and otherwise, it makes little and less sense every day of late to refer initially to decisions emanating, if any really and truly do, from even the most prominent of the world’s collection of nation states. The U.S., Israel, and the U.K. are, among hosts of others, among the minions and operatives, and no longer responsive at all day-to-day to the opinions and aspirations of their de facto subjects (all supposed citizens) unless exercised near-unanimously in strident opposition – which hasn’t happened since the forced dislodgment of Vietnam forty years ago.

A bit longer ago than that, Winston Churchill remarked famously that “Russia is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma”. So effective is the propaganda cover devised and employed today that the same could be said now for at least 98% of Americans regarding what are ostensibly U.S. actions and policies in the Middle East as well as worldwide, as well as strategically within das homeland – no great distinction being drawn anymore between international and domestic. 9/11 happened here, but it was orchestrated to turn the page globally, including here. If more money goes into imperial matters, chaos, and genocide overseas (or here), domestic concerns, being of minimal interest to global investors and bankers, are left hanging.

And how is such an, after all, drastic turn of events made amenable, or at least sufficiently tolerable, to Americans? Or Britons, for that matter? Through fear (the operative emotion from the days of the Pequot, the Armada, and the Yellow Menace), and through elaborate daily maintenance via lies, spin, and non-reportage of the myth of the upstanding America as the good guy incapable of any wrongdoing, as well as through a surfeit of rancid crumbs, in lieu of bread, and of the NFL and Kardashian circuses.

Meanwhile, those primarily overseas who won’t conform to the central bankers’ dictates and rules of conduct (read Putin’s Russia, Iran until at least the other day, Syria, Venezuela,, the Palestinians, formerly Libya and Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Panama, Ukraine, pre-Fukushima Japan, Iraq, etc., etc., etc.) are demonized and dealt with clandestinely, deceitfully, or with secretly-funded and likewise shamelessly demonized Gladio, al-Qaeda, or ISIS (ISIL) terrorists, facilitated, protected, and in point of fact given full leeway.

So, even with 9/11, don’t say “Jews did it,” when plenty of Jews, especially in the west, are aggressively anti-Zionist. And please google “non-Jewish Zionists” and see what you find – that vile and duplicitous ideological cabal is rife with such. Neither, say U.S. government insiders or the CIA were responsible ultimately. Because, while the above were not answerable to you or me in presumably so doing, they were answerable and responsible without a doubt to the central banking and world investment hierarchy, which benefited mightily.

Now, what the rest of us must do to thrust the nations and individuals back into responsible control over even the above single-minded entity – the so-called New World Order – before full-blown, irrevocable calamity beyond anyone’s imagination sets in, must be the matter squarely on top of all of our agenda. Think, my friends! Think! And persevere! All depends on it!

Paul Craig Roberts - U.S. into Syria: Blunt Talk and Stakes

The US is “Making a Fool of Itself” in Syria. Bring Back Jimmy Carter!

Former U.S. President and Nobel Laureate Jimmy Carter gestures at the 21st Hay Festival

Caught with its pants down in Syria, the US government is making a fool of itself. By attempting to mischaracterize Russia’s actions against ISIS in Syria, Washington has admitted that the terrorists from outside Syria, who are attempting to overthrow the elected government of Syria, are “our guys.”

In an interview with Fox “News,” a senior US government official said: “Putin is deliberately targeting our forces. Our guys are fighting for their lives.”

Professor Michel Chossudovsky reports that “our guys” includes Western military advisers, intelligence agents and mercenaries recruited from private security companies.

The defense official told Fox “News” that the Russians are “completely disingenuous about their desire to fight ISIS.” According to the Obama regime, all of the hundreds of Russian air and missile attacks against ISIS are directed at US trained terrorists — all five of them — and their hundreds of Western advisers.

Evidently, the senior defense official forgot that General Lloyd Austin, who heads US Central Command, recently told the Senate Armed Services Committee that only 4 or 5 of the US-trained “moderate terrorists” remain on the battle field. Obama has cancelled the failed $500 million waste of US taxpayers money to train “moderate terrorists” to overthrow the Syrian government. The trainees took the money and ran.

It is difficult to believe that even the incompetents who work for Fox “News” could really think that the Russians made hundreds of air strikes, supplemented with cruise missile strikes, against 4 or 5 moderate terrorists. But the stupidity and ignorance of Fox “News” knows no limits. (The most discouraging aspect of my existance is the knowledge that millions of dumbshit Americans sit before Fox “News” for their daily brainwashing.)

But that is the story that senior US government officials are leaking to a gullible, or paid for, Fox “News.”

The truth of the matter—which will never emerge from Fox “News”— is that Washington is using ISIS in an illegal attempt to overthrow an elected government that will not submit to being a Washington puppet.

In clear words, Washington in total violation of law is behaving as a war criminal and is attempting to overthrow an elected government in order to replace it with a vassal answering to Washington.

President Putin has said that Russia will not stand for any more war crimes from Washington in areas of the world that affect Russian national interests. Russia has been asked for assistance by the legitimate government of Syria against ISIS, and the Russian air strikes are exterminating ISIS. This has the Washington war criminals upset. The senior US defense official told Fox “News” that the only role for Russia in Syria is to assist the US in overthrowing Assad. I guess the dumbshit Washington official didn’t hear what Putin had to say.

The question that desperately needs to be asked will never be asked by the US print and TV media or by NPR. That question is: What is the point of the incessant US government lies about Russia, its actions, and its intentions? Are the warmongers in Washington trying to start World War Three?

Obviously the presidential candidates—both Hillary and all of the Republican dimwits—are determined to start World War Three. Watch the Americans vote for World War Three in the next election.

The United States government no longer has any credibility outside its borders and very little within, as evidenced by recent polls that show that 62 percent of American voters are wishing for a third party in the hopes that it might represent the people instead of a half dozen vested interests that, thanks to the Republican Supreme Court, have purchased the US government, lock, stock and barrel.

The reason so many voters admire Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump, even though both have no idea what really needs to be done, is that these two are the only candidates who are raising a fuss about a politial system that serves only a few. Talk about dictators and disenfranchisement, the American voters are the most disenfranchised in human history. Allegedly the US is a democracy, but there is no sign of democracy in the behavior of the government. Sound and careful studies show that the US voter has no input whatsoever into the behavior and decisions of the US government. The US government is as far removed from the people, if not more so, than any dictatorship. We desperately need to be liberated ourselves!

As former President Jimmy Carter recently said, America is no longer a democracy. America is an oligarchy.

Like so many things Carter was right about, but never given credit for by the corrupt American Establishment, Carter is again correct.

I say bring back Jimmy Carter. The man is moral and intelligent. He is a million times better than any presidential candidate in the running. At 90 years of age in a losing war with cancer, Jimmy Carter is our best bet.

U.S. Tells Iraq: If You Ally With Russia Against ISIS, “You’re Our Enemy”

Obama makes clear that America's war against Russia is more important than America’s war against ISIS.

By Eric Zuesse
Global Research, October 22, 2015
Region: Middle East & North Africa
Theme: US NATO War Agenda
In-depth Report: IRAQ REPORT
Iraq-Syria-US

On October 14th, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that the U.S. government had turned down the proposal from Russia’s President Vladimir Putin for the U.S. and Russia to cooperate together to eliminate ISIS and other jihadists in Syria and in Iraq. Lavrov said:

“We’ve made Americans the proposal announced by President Vladimir Putin yesterday. We suggested that they send a [US] military delegation to Moscow to coordinate a number of joint steps, and after that we could have sent to Washington a top-level delegation led by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, [but] … It is sad that our American colleagues in this case in fact do not side with those who fight against terrorism.

Then, on Tuesday October 20th, as CBS News online reported the following day,

“The U.S. has told Iraq’s leaders they must choose between ongoing American support in the battle against militants of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and asking the Russians to intervene instead. Marine Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Tuesday that the Iraqis had promised they would not request any Russian airstrikes or support for the fight against ISIS.”

However, Iraq already had done precisely that — and had even said that Russia seemed more committed to defeating ISIS than America is. As I summed up on October 10th:

Wednesday, October 7th, Reuters headlined,

“Iraq Leans Toward Russia in War on Islamic State,” and reported, from Baghdad, that, “Iraq … wants Moscow to have a bigger role than the United States in the war against the militant group, the head of parliament’s defense and security committee said on Wednesday.”

Earlier, in an interview in English, with Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, telecast on October 2nd, France24 TV asked him how he would view an extension of Russia’s anti-ISIS bombing campaign into Iraq, and he said (7:54), “I would welcome it.”

So, at some time between October 7th and October 20th, the U.S. convinced Iraq’s leaders to, in essence, dis-invite the Russians, instead of to ally with them against ISIS in Iraq.

Two alternative explanations are possible. Either the U.S. had promised the Iraqis that the U.S. will now really get serious about defeating ISIS in Iraq, or else the U.S. had promised the Iraqis that Iraq would be punished — at the IMF or elsewhere — if Iraq followed through on their announced intention to replace the U.S. with Russia. (Or, of course, the U.S. could have done both — the carrot, and the stick.)

In either case (or both), the U.S. has made clear, to the Iraqis, that America will do anything to defeat Russia — even abandon the fight against ISIS in Iraq, if need be — and that the U.S. will absolutely not ally with Russia against ISIS, under any circumstances.

This makes abundantly clear, to the whole world, that the current American government considers its main enemy to be not jihadists, but Russians.

However, already, U.S. President Barack Obama had made this clear when, in his National Security Strategy 2015, he named Russia on 17 of the 18 occasions in which he charged “aggression.” The 18th instance was not Saudi Arabia, the main funder of jihadists, but instead North Korea, which poses little real threat to any U.S. ally except South Korea, and none at all to the United States. (And, of course, the U.S. President didn’t cite the U.S., which in a 2013 WIN/Gallup International poll was overwhelmingly named the most throughout the world as “the country that represents the greatest threat to peace in the world today.”)

THE DIFFERENCE 9/11 HAS MADE

by James Hufferd, Ph.D.
Coordinator, 911 Truth Grassroots Organization

^.^.^

Trump’s latest and still continuing attack on neocon Jeb Bush over his brother the president’s ownership of a by implication avoidable 9/11 in his term is more than noteworthy. Because, that most crucial and seminal state mega-crime of the current era (and the basis of our bothersome, unending quest for acknowledgement and sanctions) is thus placed squarely back on the conversant public’s mind. And if my reading of Donald Trump is anywhere close to accurate, his stream-of-consciousness style of public rhetoric means that anything he knows and is in the forefront of his welter of thoughts at the moment is at most half a syllable away from spilling out irretrievably, subjected to a flood of interrogation. And if he knows what really happened on 9/11/01, the rest of the world is no more than a breathing cycle anytime prompted from hearing it, damn the consequences.

The general public and every public figure have been in well-accustomed and by now comfortable denial of the likely reality and certain meaning of that fateful day for the past fourteen years now. But one slip-up, Trump’s malice trumping caution, and the unraveling of all that due diligence may fall aside, blown asunder. May, I said – not will. But let us be at the ready if it does with all we know.

So, what difference has 9/11 made that could still be sent reeling into recovery and being made right? Certainly, the immediate victims can’t be brought back, not even the terminally health-afflicted.

The official (and traditional) narrative of American Exceptionalism – that the officials, agents, and businesses representing us are by rights always the world’s “good guys” and do right by nature and, pitted against others, are never wrong – is what makes and shields the absurdities of the official account of 9/11 from all rational public examination. The complicit truth-denying press bears responsibility for holding the many-faceted truth consistently at bay and ridiculing, castigating, or ignoring dissenters, keeping us aside in an airtight, soundproof marginalized vault.

Yet, when (if) the causes of 9/11 death and destruction at last come out into open discussion, the media might find the gumption to report and fact-check the discussion – perhaps at our consistent urging and badgering. And our long-studied factual knowledge of the event(s) could set us apart as a national/international asset.

One direct casualty of 9/11, compulsory (constitutionally-guaranteed) due process), can benefit from a thorough or even brief airing and from people reaching to wonder aloud, why did due process in terms of a thorough forensic and circumstantial subpoenaed investigation, never eventuate in this singularly-important case – where justice was not even winked at? Is it any wonder, as a result of this and some other outrageous acts, that the U.S. public’s trust in the institutions of government has plunged to somewhere below twenty percent? Surely, people who aren’t crediting 9/11 for it, do realize that much has changed. For starters, none of us is safe.

Yet the contention often made among us that a general awareness that 9/11 wasn’t perpetrated by Middle Eastern Muslims would somehow automatically shut down America’s unending foreign wars, including the stupendously larger and more lucrative than announced “War on Terror”, does not strike me as entirely credible. That would require an admission as well that the main U.S.-designated enemies, in particular al-Qaeda and ISIS (ISIL) were recruited and funded by the U.S. and its allies. Hence, that is another message we all need to circulate and credibly substantiate as an extension of 9/11 truth itself.

In addition, the connection needs to be made for everyone between 9/11 and the brutal and systematic militarization and concomitant massive theft from our common treasury and rightful governance (infrastructure, education, etc.) wrought by the false response to 9/11. The road we are on is indeed the road of empire and intolerance of others’ non-compliant efforts and successes, leaving everyone, including us, regarded an alien enemy by the perpetrators at the top of our shameless establishment, with scorched and barren earth and ashes in our mouth.

Yes, we want our country back. So, we must counter relentlessly with our ultimate weapon, the truth. And if Trump (or anyone) should broach the subject of 9/11’s great cause for us, jump on it.

WHAT TO DO, WHAT TO DO

by James Hufferd, Ph.D.
Coordinator, 911 Truth Grassroots Organization

##

Resolved: We are ruled and channeled cradle to grave like the herd we are by jackals – moral termites. And yet, although amply warned, I continue to ogle shamelessly the blood sport of top-level American politics like some who know better rivet themselves nevertheless to the spectacle of pro wrestling, and I – as possibly they – do occasionally at least glean an insight or two therefrom.

For example: In the case of the two acrimonious Republican debates to date, while the public (potential voters) voluntarily tested in the online polls quite overwhelmingly declared that one candidate had won the raucous verbal sparring hands down, the media in print and on TV lustily touted the clear victory of others, not the establishment-loathed candidate (or better, combatant) favored by the many thousands of participants in all the polls.

And (surprise!) the same held true for the Democratic debate. All – and I mean ALL – of the media, print and TV, said it was no contest, that the establishment darling, the fair-haired Hillary of the CFR, clearly won in a triumph of capitalism and competence over candidate Sanders’s off-brand of democratic socialism; while the online polls, registering the perceptions of mere mortal viewers (voters), scored it, on the average, something like 78% for ‘Sanders won’ to maybe 15% ‘Clinton won”. (And this revealing tendency was something candidate Sanders himself pointed to out loud the day after, blaming the media – which could spell trouble for him in some inopportune form and timeframe farther along the way.)

But, though I “know” that the system is rigged and don’t expect that they would let Bernie Sanders actually become the nominee, I don’t believe that he’s in on the rigging himself, because there’s no reason he would need to be. And still, while there may be only one chance in a thousand that such a stolid critic of the establishment’s very foundations will ever be declared the winner, I continue to hold out just a sliver of hope that he might still slip through in the end. Although my more cynical (lizard) brain tells me that even that could be part of their plan to produce stalemate, devastating disillusion, and the further dismantling of the notion of constructive collectivism (democratic self-rule) despised by the √©lite, achieved by trashing and blocking any measures he, the popular leader insisted upon, would dare attempt in his zeal to enact. They have done that, you know.

Regardless, it seems, the fate of the herd that is us is already sealed. And if you don’t think it so, just pick up and read Jim Marrs’s new book Population Control, in which he lays out all the various ways we are hogtied and in the midst of a drastic culling or thinning by means you probably never dreamed of. (Perhaps ironically, the surest means of depopulation, the steady progressive lowering of the male sperm count in the west over many decades, appears to be at most probably no more than a by-product of some of the other debilitating means induced deliberately.) The dramatic impositions author Marrs artfully discloses, one per chapter, have been, for the most part, introduced in fact subtly to residents of the U.S. up to now and far less subtly abroad.

Re-reading John McMurtry’s classic 2012 article, “The Moral Decoding of 9/11”, reminds me just how bad – there’s no better word for it – the New World Order, with all of its manifold intertwined time-release anti-people schemata really is. Its drivers, like twin geriatric wonders Henry Kissinger and David Rockefeller, and a host of others far more anonymous, will stop at absolutely nothing to move their agenda of the self-elect (or select) forward. McMurtry reminds us of how Kissinger congratulated Pinochet’s brutal Chile regime and the ruling Argentine generals who had disappeared some 100,000 of their opposition, dropping some at least out of airplanes, for doing such a good job.

And David Rockefeller, élite American agent for the Rothschilds who somehow vanished along with their well-leveraged literally hundreds of trillions by now from cruel world exposure, is quoted from his in effect thank-you card to prominent members of the press who had attended Bilderberg Group meetings and cooperated by refraining from reporting on them, as follows:

“The plan for the world would have been impossible for us to develop if we had been subjected to the light of publicity during those years.”

The NWO global network, embracing puppet Israel as well as the anesthetized puppet U.S.A. deep state, had to command a false flag – in one sense, just another of the 3,000 identified CIA/security state covert ops of history (in addition to the Mossad ones), because their combined criminal enterprise was fresh out of enemies with the fall of world communist. Damn the torpedoes, damn the sorry victims – including us all as well as the dead. At least a million each year are slaughtered directly in the unabated hecatomb I cited before. The sea is rising, air concealing toxic agents of death and distress, the accounts of people and nations below flat, homes subsumed. Damn the planet! It reminds me of how productive the pirates plaguing the Internet could be if they pursued anything honest with the same determination and zeal. Africa could be made a paradise with just some of the trillions for instance the Rothschilds could part with; but their plan bodes opposite. Qadaffi wanted to do that, but was cut off short.

So, what can we do? First, note that the NWO is like a steamroller, or a gigantic mattress pressed down on top of us. And it will only move in one direction. There’s no reversing it. None of us relative ants can do anything at all to rid ourselves of it. But, in concert, we could fairly easily and unstoppably carry it off and bury it and live un-suffocated lives happily ever after, at least until we, all too human, succumbed again.

So, how can we get the word out about it? By getting the word out! Please note: the vast majority of people everywhere have about had it by now. So, at this point, it is incumbent on us who know the truth to spread the word night and day, nonstop and also irreversibly, of the nature of our oppressors, and the truth that we must strike a plan to move independently in concert to throw or scrape it off. 9/11 is a good place to start, because so bad and so much in the open, and to get too detailed and too nit-picky in our telling of it is actually counter-productive as well as unnecessary. It’s far better to stick to basics with the unconvinced and unexposed.

With that in mind, let’s get after it! Arm ourselves with a good handful of key facts, gleaned from the many available, to make the case, and don’s let up! Pass it on and on and on and on and on! Tell your neighbors, family, co-workers, total strangers in waiting rooms, on busses, trains, golf courses, and planes. In beauty parlors. Hit the airwaves. Flood the opinion pages. Make a movie. Go with 9/11 truth and the message that the NWO, source of both the operation and cover-up and in full control of the lying media, itself amounts to an unimaginably powerful, never ceasing, verifiable plot against humanity, devised to enslave, re-program, and re-design us all. And 9/11 exemplifies all of that.

The world is yearning to breathe free already, as much as you and I. Don’t let the opportunity posed by its current growing wakefulness pass you by. Get involved like never before. Because, personally, I can see no other way.

THEY Can't Handle the Truth

by James Hufferd, Ph.D.
Coordinator, 911 Truth Grassroots Organization

#

We lament that the supposedly world-class government supposedly representing most of us willfully misrepresents a plethora of straightforward evidence in order to steadfastly maintain a provably fallacious, purposefully self-serving public narrative purporting to portray both the instances and background of the 9/11/01 crime events. But what we fail to adequately grasp and convey to inform world consciousness is that the U.S. government always misrepresents everything to its perceived advantage without the least regard for the verified truth.

Among prominent current or presently-pertinent examples:

• The U.S. currently complains loudly about Russia’s bombing campaign aimed at disabling ISIS forces in Syria that are (not too) secretly funded by Washington and which the U.S. consistently bad-mouths like crazy but, presumably for that reason, refrains from bombing itself. We (9/11 Truthers and activists) need to spread the word as widely and loudly as possible about this to spark public awareness and demand for truth-telling.
• U.S. government spokespersons continue to pursue the ouster of Syrian President Assad, falsely claiming a) that he gassed his own people (while evidence points to the rebels against him as having done that instead) and b) that Syrians overwhelmingly want him out (while the only polls taken recently indicate that a majority continue to support him). Furthermore, U.S. officials themselves said consistently at least in the recent past that the Syrian people must be free to choose their own leaders.
• U.S. officials continue to blame Russia for shooting down or ordering the shoot-down of the Malaysian airliner from Ukrainian airspace, though the evidence and third-party reports indicate that Ukrainian defense forces were responsible.
• U.S. officials demanded Russia pull back its troops from Ukrainian territory, when even Ukrainian officials declared that no Russian troops were in their territory.
• U.S. officials have insisted consistently that Putin was launching an imperialistic policy of aggression without any credible evidence, while the U.S. and NATO have surrounded Russia with forward bases and engineered through a series of so-called “Color Revolutions” the overthrow, replacement, and reorientation of a number of pro-Russia regimes in former Soviet republics and satellites, including Ukraine.
• Through ultimatums and apparent false-flag operations in Europe, the U.S. has spread fear of war on their turf to exact reluctant policy compliance from Germany, France, and smaller NATO partner nations. The truth, meanwhile, is that the U.S. has not taken on by arms a country anywhere near its size and strength for over 70 years and counting, and is not likely to do so deliberately.

So, 9/11 is not at all exceptional as a duplicitous ploy or instrumentally twisted tale. Indeed, such pop up, accompanied by clanging alarms, whistles, and hand-wringing, every week or two now, and the bullying, shameless perpetrators never fess up, even when everybody knows – which, for the sake of the world, everybody must. That’s where we come in! Pass it on!

Global Research - The Anti-Russian Lying Machine

The Anti-Russian Lying Machine in Action

It never rests, now in high gear following Russia’s announced aerial campaign against ISIS in Syria, beginning on September 30.

For the first time since WW II, Russian and US warplanes are bombing the same country – each for entirely different reasons.

Moscow’s campaign aims to defeat ISIS, eliminate its scourge. Washington actively supports it, striking Syrian targets exclusively, duplicitously claiming otherwise.

The US State and Defense Departments’ lying machine has sprung into action, criticizing Moscow instead of praising its efforts, vital against terrorists ravaging Syria.

Defense Secretary Ashton Carter claimed Russian airstrikes are tantamount to “pouring gasoline on the fire.” “By supporting Assad and seemingly taking on everyone who is fighting Assad, you’re taking on the whole rest of the country of Syria,” he blustered.

That is not our position. At least some parts of the anti-Assad opposition belong in the political transition going forward. That’s why the Russian approach is doomed to fail.

Carter and other administration officials fear it may succeed, undermining Washington’s imperial strategy, a long overdue initiative.

John Kerry suggested Russia isn’t fighting ISIS, instead targeting non-existent moderate rebels. Despite Moscow’s request to clear Syrian airspace to avoid any accidental aerial engagements between US and Russian aircraft, Kerry said so-called “coalition” strikes will continue.

America’s declared war on ISIS is a complete fabrication. Russia’s is the real thing – why Obama administration officials are so alarmed about its justifiable intervention, supporting a regional ally in need, complying fully with international law.

A statement from the “Presidency of the Syrian Arab Republic” said “the sending of Russian air forces was carried out upon a request of the Syrian state conveyed via a letter sent by President Bashar al-Assad to President Vladimir Putin.” He got unanimous upper house Federation Council authorization to deploy Russian forces abroad and conduct aerial operations in Syria – in full compliance with international law.

During a Wednesday Security Council session on countering terrorism, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem pointedly said “(t)he UN charter has authorized Security Council the first responsibility for protecting international peace and Security, yet, what has the council done to combat terrorism in Syria and Iraq.”

It’s done nothing to challenge Washington’s war machine with complicit EU and regional partners. It’s financing and arming ISIS as well as other takfiri terrorists, used to “perpetrate the ugliest crimes in Syria and Iraq,” Moallem stressed.

“Those who want to combat terrorism on the Syrian territories should cooperate and coordinate with the Syrian government whose army carries on the war against terrorism and assumes its national duty in defending the Syrian people,” he added.

Sergey Lavrov told reporters: “Do not listen to the Pentagon (propaganda) about Russian (air) strikes. Ask the Russian Defense Ministry.” Full information was made public.

Moscow stepped up to the plate and acted, countering US-sponsored aggression, actively supported by Israel, Britain, France, Canada and Australia, along with Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, other Gulf states and Jordan.

Moallem thanked Vladimir Putin for providing vitally needed help. Whether it’s enough to be a game-changer remains to be seen.

It’s only day two of operations. On day one, Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said: “Today, Russian aerospace force jets delivered pinpoint strikes on eight ISIS terror group targets in Syria. In total, 20 flights were made.”

As a result, arms and fuel depots and military equipment were hit. ISIS coordination centers in the mountains were totally destroyed. Russian jets did not use weapons on civilian infrastructure or in its vicinity.

Strikes followed air surveillance intelligence enabling Russia’s Defense Ministry to choose targets for successfully conducted pinpoint strikes. Areas around Homs and Hama were hit.

Russia’s Defense Ministry categorically denied accusations of causing civilian casualties – fabricated to vilify Moscow’s legitimate attacks on ISIS targets.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said “(i)t’s all an information attack, a war, of which we’ve heard so many times” before.

She expressed surprise about the scale and speed of social media “info injections,” including fake “photos of alleged victims.”

We all know perfectly well how such pictures are made,” she said. Billionaire George Soros is notoriously anti-Russian. His White Helmets group claims phony humanitarian credentials.

It’s an instrument for imperial propaganda – its elements caught red-handed fabricating so-called evidence of Russia’s “disastrous” involvement in Syria.

Its photo of a bleeding girl posted on Twitter was propaganda misinformation – along with saying “Russia strike in Homs today. 33 civilians killed including 3 children and 1 @SyriaCivilDef volunteer.

False!! It never happened. The girl shown was wounded on September 25 – five days before Russia’s air campaign began. No evidence of civilian casualties exists.

The phony Twitter posting appeared hours before Wednesday’s bombing began – reminiscent of the BBC reporting on World Trade Center building 7 collapsing on 9/11 30 minutes before it happened.

The White Helmets (formerly called the Syria Civil Defense) was externally created – serving imperial and monied interests, not the Syrian people as claimed.

It actively backs takfiri terrorist groups, committing horrific atrocities where they’re deployed – part of America’s war OF terror on humanity, a scourge vital to challenge.

The Western media lying machine is in high gear, speaking with one voice, irresponsibly bashing Russia’s campaign to defeat ISIS in Syria – perhaps next in Iraq if its government requests badly needed help.

A typical New York Times propaganda piece headlined “Russians Strike Targets in Syria, but Not ISIS.” The source: US officials, notorious liars.

Other Western media repeated the same Big Lie. The Washington Post called Russia’s campaign “an unpredictable new element…a dramatic escalation of Russia’s military involvement…an affront” to Obama…”sharply increas(ing) tensions…US official dispute Moscow’s claim” about targeting ISIS – despite no evidence disputing Russia’s Defense Ministry account of yesterday’s actions.

The Wall Street Journal headlined “Russian Airstrikes in Syria Targeted CIA-Backed Rebels, US Officials Say.” So-called “rebels” are ISIS and other takfiri terrorists.

No moderate elements exist, at least not enough to matter. US Central Command General Lloyd Austin admitted a $500 million Pentagon program trained only “four or five” so-called “rebels.”

Other US-trained Division 30 fighters reportedly handed their weapons and equipment to al-Nusra terrorists immediately on entering Syria.

Other Western Media Russia bashing included the Chicago Tribune headlining “US warns Russia against striking non-Islamic State groups in Syria.”

The Los Angeles Times headlined “Russia launches airstrikes in Syria amid US concern about targets.”

The UK government’s owned and operated BBC asked whether Russia is “trying to destroy IS or…prop up President Assad? Falsely claiming Wednesday targets struck had “no (IS) presence.”

London’s Guardian highlighted Pentagon propaganda, accusing Russia of “throwing gasoline on the fire…(a strategy) doomed to failure.”

CNN asked “(w)hat are Russia’s intentions. US questions whether Russia is trying to hit ISIS.”

Fox News headlined “CIA-backed rebels, civilians reportedly targeted by Russian airstrikes in Syria.”

Western media reports on all major domestic and geopolitical issues feature all rubbish all the time – an insult to news consumers wanting real information, not state-sponsored propaganda.

Moscow’s involvement in Syria represents the first serious challenge to Washington’s regional hegemonic agenda.

Anti-Russian propaganda doesn’t change facts on the ground. ISIS now faces a formidable adversary. So do lunatics in Washington.
