“Forthcoming planned invasion of Syria” by Turkish and Saudi ground forces, according to the geopolitical analyst, was discussed at the NATO headquarters on the same day a ceasefire agreement was reached at the Munich security conference. Director of the Centre for Research on Globalization added that Turkish and Saudi representatives were present at Friday’s meeting, which was chaired by US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter.
“Turkish forces are already [in Syria],” Chossudovsky noted, referring to the unconfirmed reports that Ankara allowed approximately 100 “Turkish soldiers or mercenaries” to cross into Syria in order to support rebels fighting against President Bashar al-Assad.

Russia Prime Minister Warns US and Arab Countries: Invading Syria “will start a new world war
Russia has publicly warned Saudi Arabia, the US, and other countries, they risk “a new world war” if they act on plans to send troops into Syria. WW3: 18 days away.
Here are the terrifying facts you need to know
Syria, in the Middle East, is suffering from a Civil War which has been going on for several years. Rebels have been trying to overthrow Syrian President Bashar Assad. The Rebels are backed by Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar, Kuwait, Pakistan and other Sunni Muslim countries. Those Sunni Muslim countries do not like that Syria’s President, Bashar Assad, is an Alawite Muslim, with beliefs closer to Shia Islam – the Iranian version of that “religion.” Shias and Sunnis are ideological enemies on a horrific scale.
It is in the interest of the Sunni nations to have Assad overthrown, so they can enjoy hegemony over Syria and bring it into the Sunni sphere of influence as opposed to Syria getting closer to Iran and their Shia version of Islam.
The US also backed the rebels because, for whatever reason, we wanted Syria destabilized, as we did with Iraq, Libya and pretty much every other nation we’ve screwed-up for the past decade! In short, we in the U.S. and our allies, are backing rebels who are trying to overthrow the Syrian government. We’re backing “the bad guys.”
Syria has always been a military ally of Russia. Russia has a deep water port in Syria which is important to the Russian Navy. When it became clear to Russia that Syria was going to fall to the Rebels, Russia announced they were coming to the aid of their ally, at the request of Syria and with its permission.
These “rebels” are a murky bunch. Some call themselves the “Free Syrian Army” while others are part of the Al-Nusra Front. But the rebels are also cozy with folks in Al Qaida and ISIS; outright terrorists.
ISIS takes over entire regions of countries, steals the resources and uses the cash from the stolen resources to fund its worldwide terror attacks. In Syria, ISIS controls the second largest city, Aleppo and another, smaller city Raqqa. In Iraq, ISIS controls Mosul. These are oil-rich areas of the two countries, and ISIS has been stealing the oil.
What the rest of the world didn’t know until recently, was that Turkey has been covertly working with ISIS. Turkey has been allowing literally thousands of oil tanker trucks from Iraq and Syria to carry stolen oil into Turkey, EVERY DAY, where it is slightly refined, re-packaged to look legitimate, then sold “on-the-cheap” so no one asks any questions. This oil theft operation has netted ISIS $100 Million per month! ! ! !
Russia Enters To Assist Their Ally
When Russia entered the Syrian fight, they had two targets: 1) Rebels who were trying to overthrow Syrian President Bashar Assad, AND; 2) Terrorists
Russia has excellent intelligence-gathering systems, has very good spy satellites, and very good sig-int (Signals Intelligence) which spies on electronic communications. Through these systems, Russia came to know where ISIS was operating and how. Russia began attacking them with air strikes. This severely affected the flow of stolen oil. With less stolen oil flowing, less money was coming in, and everyone who was “in” on the stolen oil money, started losing profits. The highest levels of the Turkish government, including its President and his sons, are “in” on the oil smuggling.
With Russia putting a damper on the stolen oil, and cutting into profits, Turkey decided to send Russia a message to knock it off: They shot down a Russian Bomber.
You may recall at the time that Russian President Putin described this as “A stab in the back of Russia by accomplices to terrorism.” No one understood what “ACCOMPLICES TO TERRORISM” meant, until Russia’s intelligence people revealed publicly, surveillance videos of the convoys of oil trucks carrying stolen oil into Turkey. Then, everything became quite clear.
In the ensuing months, Russia has made incredibly good progress against both the Rebels and the Terrorists. They really are doing a lot of good.
But this is interfering with Saudi Arabia’s grand plans, Turkey’s stolen-oil-money-profits and the intent of other Sunni Muslim countries to control Syria. It is also riling the US who wants Assad out.
As Rebels Lose, Saudis Begin Talk of Invasion
Last week, Syrian forces, with Russian and Iranian help, began encircling the City of Aleppo, Syria. When Saudi Arabia and its pals saw that Aleppo was being circled – and would fall – they knew that their entire effort to overthrow Assad would fall too. Aleppo is a key Rebel/Terrorist stronghold and if it goes, the fight is done for the Rebels.
So last weekend, Saudi Arabia publicly floated the idea of sending 150,000 ground troops into Syria “to fight ISIS.” Well, everyone who knows what’s really going on now, understands the Saudi’s are full of shit. They don’t want to “fight ISIS” they want to help the rebels overthrow Assad! Turkey wants to protect ISIS so they can keep grabbing boatloads of cash from the stolen oil.
Nobody who mattered took the Saudi offer seriously because everyone knows what’s really going on. This did not sit well with the Saudis or the US. So U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter publicly described the Saudi offer of 150,000 ground troops as “a good idea” which he would “discuss with our other allies.”
The Public WARNINGS Begin
Syria and Russia both read between the lines and saw the writing on the wall: If foreign ground troops come in, it will not be to fight ISIS, it will be to support the rebels and overthrow Assad. So Syria’s Foreign Minister went public and said, No one should think they can challenge Syria’s territorial sovereignty and anyone who tries will be sent home in a wooden coffin.” Then a member of the Russian State Duma (Parliament) publicly stated that “If any foreign troops enter Syria without permission from the Syrian government, Russia will consider that a declaration of war.”
The world took a “pregnant pause.” These are heavy duty words from Russia which is – like it or not – a super power.
Wednesday, I got word from my colleagues in the Intelligence Community that Saudi Arabia and 25 of its “allies” had begun massing troops in northern Saudi Arabia. This time, it wasn’t the 150,000 that were mentioned earlier. This time it is 350,000 ground troops.
Then the shit hit the fan when it was confirmed that the Saudis and their allies are already transporting TWENTY THOUSAND TANKS. (20,000). Worse, 2,450 warplanes are enroute to northern Saudi Arabia and the Saudis have declared the airspace in the northern section of the country to be “closed.” Lastly, in addition to the 2,450 warplanes, four-hundred-sixty (460) military helicopters are enroute as well.
Saudi Arabia had the balls to claim this was all part of an “exercise.” Bullshit. There has never, in the history of human existence, been an “exercise” with 350,000 troops, 20,000 tanks, 2,450 warplanes and 460 military helicopters. There is just no way to have an exercise of that magnitude, it is too damn large. What’s really taking place is the massing of an invasion force. Saudi Arabia also said the exercise would take 18 days. That would put it as ending February 28.
When this info came out, Russia repeated its warning that any foreign troops entering Syria without permission would be a declaration of war.
This time, there was no “pregnant pause.” This time, the Saudis had one of their Brig. Generals come out on TV and state “The decision to send ground troops into Syria is final.” That statement came out earlier today.
Late this afternoon, Defense Secretary Ash Carter announced he was “asking NATO allies to join a US coalition to send ground troops into Syria.” This is directly threatening the Russians that they will be facing NATO!
The Russian response was swift: This evening Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev warned that “the demands of some Arab countries to send ground forces into Syria risks starting a new world war.” Mr. Medvedev said sending troops to Syria risks drawing “everyone taking part in it into a war” and drastically escalating the conflict. “All ground operations, as a rule, lead to permanent wars,” he said. “The Americans must consider – both the U.S. president and our Arab partners – whether or not they want a permanent war.” Russia again repeated its warning that any foreign ground troops entering Syria without permission would be a declaration of war.
Late this evening, The Irish Times broke news that the intent of Saudi Arabia sending ground forces is “to counter Russia.” Whoa! When did the mission change from fighting ISIS to “countering Russia?” Who decided that?
We are now watching final stages of World War Three being put into operation
Here’s the worst part: When NATO was first created to protect Europe from what was the big, bad Soviet Union, the Soviets enjoyed huge advantages in all military force. Russia could field 100 Divisions; NATO could only field 12. Russia could field 18,000 tanks. NATO could only field about 5,000. So NATO adopted the “flexible response strategy.”
The ONLY possible way to delay or halt the advance of 100 Army Divisions with 18,000 tanks is to use Tactical (Battlefield) nuclear weapons as a “force multiplier.” NATO thus no longer needed to match the size and strength of Russia, because a doctrine had been adopted to equal the balance of power by using Tactical nukes. The Deterrent threat of that possibility worked! It kept the peace.
Fast-Forward to today. To this very moment, the ONLY way to stop 350,000 ground troops with 20,000 tanks coming at you is to use tactical nukes. There simply is no other choice.
Russia has adopted a first strike doctrine. If Russia, or its territory or its interests are faced with being over-run, they will use tactical nukes to deal with that problem.
So here we have it: Russia now faces being over-run in Syria starting 18 days from now. The ONLY possible way they can stop 350,000 ground troops backed by 20,000 tanks, is to use tactical nukes. Their formal policy is to do exactly that. Hence, tactical (Battlefield) nuclear weapons will be used. There’s no way to avoid it because it is the only possible defense against 350,000 ground troops and 20,000 tanks coming across the border.
As the artillery-fired nuclear shells start detonating, they will spread radiation into Jordan or Iraq – whichever nation is the entry point for the mass of troops. Wind will carry that radiation deep into those countries.
Perhaps very small (5kt) devices will be launched by (undetectable) cruise missiles directly into Saudi Arabia because that’s where the mass of troops is coming from? Again, the wind will carry the fallout elsewhere inside that nation too.
American Mass Media Keeping All of This Quiet
The American media is totally silent about all this. This is by design; they want you to be taken totally by surprise when war breaks out, so you’ll be too scared to think, and instead, will just do what the politicians tell you.
When this war breaks out — 18 days from now — and the Russians do what they must to protect Syria from being over-run, the ONLY thing the American public will be told is “Russia attacked Saudi Arabia with nuclear weapons. Saudi Arabia is our ally and we are going to help them.”
Americans, completely ignorant of who is _really_ the bad guy here (the Sunnis and the US), will hear that “Russia attacked our allies with nukes” they’ll gasp and say to themselves “those bastards” and off to war they’ll go; a war that will have already gone nuclear. WW3 . . . 18 days from now.
Bear in mind there have always been questions about President Obama’s religious leanings. He has claimed he is a Christian. But in verbal slips from time to time, he has talked of his “Muslim faith.” If Obama is, in fact, a Muslim, then it is proper to ask if he leans Sunni or Shia. The facts seem to show the answer: Look at the sweetheart nuclear deal he gave to (Shia) Iran!
Would Obama use a deception like this to lead the Sunnis to destruction? Maybe. Would Obama risk causing a nuclear exchange with Russia, destroying parts of his own country? Well, if he _is_ a Shia, one need only remember that (Shia) Iran refers to the US as “the Great Satan.” so this could be a way for Obama to achieve two enormous goals: lead the Sunnis to THEIR destruction at the hands of Russia, then cause the “great satan” severe destruction too.
If Obama is a Shia muslim, it would be “mission accomplished” for him!
