Were the human element of the ongoing tragedy in Syria not involved, the mess would be more akin to a Gilbert and Sullivan operetta, or, perhaps, to a badly written libretto for an 18th century opera by a mediocre composer. Yesterday's freedom fighers are today's enemies, and Russia has had enough and is now actively and openly sending aid and support to the embattled regime of Bashar al Assad. The American response has been all-too-typical, with the usual flannel-mouthed denunciations of the Russian actions as "destabilizing," with no mention, of course, of what the West's actions have been.

But the Russian presence may be disturbing to the ongoing insanity in another sense altogether, one that Western hawks surely have to be contemplating. Consider this story shared by Mr. S.D.:

Reuters: Russian Boots on Ground in Syria Seeking to Destroy Western Created ISIS

Before we even tackle the article itself, note two prominent factors right off the bat: (1) the title of the article: Russian Boots on Ground in Syria Seeking to Destroy Western Created ISIS,(emphasis added) and (2) the fact that it is Reuters which has run the story under this headline. This is not an alternative news source, this is not internet conspiracy theory, this is very much a mainstream western newswire service, and that is indicative, I suggest in one component of my high octane speculation (and as we'll see shortly, fantasy), of growing "dissent in the ranks" within the West itself, or, if one prefers, some major "factional infighting" in the "house that NATO built."

But when one turns to the actual text of the article, the language is even less guarded, and more directly accusatory(and I am citing nearly the entirety of the end of the article here):

This incredible news is the culmination of a string of crises that have taken place as a result of the Syrian conflict. The central problems, of course, being the obviously Western created Migrant Crisis and ISIS terrorist forces.

Russia’s President Putin has been the only world leader to openly name and shame the West for being directly responsible for the crisis and growth of ISIS, with others in the Russian government branding Western interference in the Middle East as ‘social engineering‘.

The military forces deployed to work with Assad in his fight against ISIS will most likely be special forces units with tight objectives, which is in massive contrast to the regular occurrence of Western mission creep.

This development confirms analysis calling out further Western interference as ‘incalculable folly‘, as it would now lead to a potential confrontation with Russia – a situation that would become truly earth shattering.

The difference between this intervention and Western meddling, is that this is an entirely legal and sanctioned act of cooperation between two internationally recognised nation states. Anyone saying anything different should have their motives questioned.
(bold and italics emphases added)

It doesn't take any reading "between the lines" here, because everything is said crystal-clearly right in the lines themselves: (1) Russian "special forces" are involved (and one can only contemplate the results of ISIS what will happen when ISIS beheads its first Russian or meets its first speznaz unit), and (2) the whole refugee/ISIS mess is of the West's own creation (this from Reuter's naming unnamed US sources), and (3) the Russian intervention, unlike the West's, has at least the letter - if not the spirit - of international law behind it.

I suggest that the real news here is between the lines, for Russian on-the-ground forces clearly have "specific mission objectives," even though we don't know what they are. One, of course, is suggested by the title of the article itself: the Russians mean to destroy ISIS (and hence, the deployment of Russian special forces, who will be playing with a very different set of "rules of engagement" than ISIS is used to fighting thus far). The other, however, is one that might have certain lights in a whole lot of places burning late at night with a bit of worry and anxiety, for yet another mission that the Russians might be on is an "evidence-gathering" mission to find out, and perhaps eventually expose, just exactly who is behind ISIS, who long they've been behind it, and where the money and equipment is really coming from, with irrefutable proof.

I can almost see it now... instead of an angry Adlai Stevenson confronting a Sphinx-like Valerian Zorin in the UN Security Council with photos of Soviet missiles in Cuba and insisting he's going to wait for an explanation until hell freezes over, we have Sergei Lavrov in the UN Security Counil, producing photos and documents(perhaps some containing Hillary's emails) to the nameless and amoprhous shapes that fill the chairs of the west's permanent members on that body,or, even better, Zbgnw Brzznsk (could we PLEASE get some vowels, or at least some vowel points?), with the Germans, Chinese, Indians, Brazilians, and Argentines, looking on quietly, scarcely able to contain their smiles, as Mr. Lavrov asks for an explanation, and says he'll be happy to wait until hell freezes over.

Ok ok... I'm dreaming in my high octane speculation run-amock... but still, it's a nice fantasy...

But one thing is clear, once again messages are being sent from within the power structure of the West, from one element, to another. And here the message is being sent without obfuscation, without careful language, and without hesitation.

That should give one pause...

See you on the flip side...

    Good take on it all. Thank you Basta and all. Muckety might give you some ideas in real time. I gotta go to work or i’d dig around on a couple names and connect em. Obviously though, simple google searches sometimes still work.

  2. basta on September 24, 2015 at 3:31 am

    As Anthroposophe has already remarked, the text is not from Reuters — an outright Rothschild-owned media mouthpiece — but from 21st Century Wire, a small indy news website which can afford to speak bluntly. So no, there’s been no sea-change in acknowledging the rank hypocrisy and and the truth of the ISIS proxy war being waged on Syria by the usual suspects.

    In fact, if you read the Reuters article, it was from the 9th September and was one of the early Mighty Wurlitzer articles put out there to raise the Cold-War alurums that “the Russians are coming, the Russians are coming!”

    As for Russia’s move, it is a masterstroke carried out with perfect timing. Putin waited until the ISIS game became so obviously manipulated that any sentient being in the West has now realized that the ISIS show is puppet-proxy theatre. He shows up DC and the rest of the cabal as rank hypocrites and the actual backers; he forces the US hand and shows the world that the US, when push comes to shove, is a paper tiger and immediately folds; he re-enforces and expands his military capabilities and bases in Syria, with a formidable force projection of spanking-new hardware which he also gets to battle-test, he expands the port of Tartus and extends the runways the airbase at Latakia to allow large military transports, and within weeks Bibi The Psychopath is visiting the Kremlin. Magnanimous, Putin even proposes that Russian energy companies develop the Leviathan offshore gas field for Israel, which would be a staggering paradigm shift in the ME.

    Overall, this is a sea-change moment in the ME; Russia is back, and back in force, and it means business. The US is over-extended, morally and financially corrupt and playing a dirty hand. The world is watching and putting 2+2 together.

          Good research basta. It would be very interesting to see all the major news media and wire services broken down like this. Some years ago someone did this on the internet, but it would be interesting to see what things are like now.

          • basta on September 24, 2015 at 12:56 pm

            Thanks Joseph but this took but one google search of “Rothschild+Reuters” to locate; imagine the hidden corpoate ties.

            I think it would actually be quite appalling/illuminating to see the actual cross-holdings and cross-directorships of the major media broken down this way. There was a Swiss university study that boiled down the entire world economy into little more than 200 power-centers/cross-holdings, with the major int’l banks as nexus points (surprise, surprise):


          • goshawks on September 24, 2015 at 3:50 pm

            basta, thanks for the ‘connections’ article. I had read it before, but lost the bookmark. We all need to remind ourselves periodically of the ‘conspiracy facts’.

            When I first read this article, I was concerned that the authors might meet up with quick ‘accidents’. But then, I saw they covered themselves with weasel-words about the grouping just being ‘natural’. Smart people. I’m still surprised the work was not ‘spiked’ before publication, but maybe TPTB feel they are ‘invulnerable’ by now…

        • Don B on September 24, 2015 at 4:06 pm

          Interesting. I figured there was some connection. Thanks.db

  3. zendogbreath on September 23, 2015 at 11:23 pm

    I’m being careful to avoid expecting too much good out of Putin. To be sure though Evermoor, he’s sharp. If you want to see what they’re capable of, youtube some systema spetznaz links.

    I gotta go with Yankee Phil on this one. Just as NATO coulda woulda shoulda looked at a satellite and run the planet like an honest power that should be could have (in this instance and an infinity of others, MH370,….), Russia is likely to only go as far as it’s worth going. And proof that NATO is corrupt even to the detriment of their own members and citizens is not worth much. Not many don’t know that already. And obviously Putin is capable and obliged to the same nature and level of corruption.

    The link to the fighting INSIDE Switzerland is more insight than I ever expected. Thank you much. Talk about clarity. Hasn’t Switzerland to date been the last place on Earth the owners of Reuters tolerated being messed with directly by all the other military/industrial hypocrisy? Yah sure, Switzerland mucked up? We’re done. Tone it down now or we will through other channels.

    Again, one has to wonder how far into Redshield pockets Putin has run. And how far they’ll make him earn his keep. About now, Obusha has to be wondering the same. And Kerry’s rubbing his sore leg.

    Thank you again all of you all. This has made the amazon costs of Dr Farrell’s books worth spending a couple times over.

    One last question. Please elaborate or link somewhere to Madrid Circular?

    • DanaThomas on September 24, 2015 at 2:26 am

      The 1953 book by T.H.Tetens, “Germany Plots with the Kremin”, quoted in the “The Third Way”, unfortunately does not source the Madrid Circular. However, since Joseph’s book was published, this article came out which might give a little more information on the Madrid Geopolitical Center (though still not satisfactorily sourced), mentioned in conjunction with NY Times correspondent Sulzberger and assuming it to be one and the same with the “Spinne” organization.
      Here is another tidbit: the great book by Christopher Story, “European Union Collective”, out of print and sold second hand at outrageous prices, is now available in pdf format:

    • EVERMORE on September 24, 2015 at 4:01 am

      Hey Zendog…not sure what you meant by “Putin is capable and obliged to the same level of corruption” and further I suspect that Putin is exploiting what appears to be a real schism between elite factions (perhaps Rothschilds V Rockefellers?) as to who is to lead the NWO and how that will be decided.

      Re the MADRID CIRCULAR I can only point to Dr Farrell’s latest book “The Third Way: The Nazi International, European Union, and Corporate Fascism” and how prophetic the material Tetens presented about the Circular is… I’m only a 3rd the way through the book and yet again the info and insights Dr Farrell presents are truly breathtaking.

      • EVERMORE on September 24, 2015 at 4:11 am

        A super quick search of the Madrid Circular also provides this:

        • DanaThomas on September 24, 2015 at 9:36 am

          The Tetens book is well worth getting and costs just a few dollars on the second hand market.

    ISIS will simply run back across the borders into turkey and lebanon as fleeing refugee’s and germany will get the Nato block to give them sanctuary. If the Russians cut them off at the borders and don’t allow a large number to escape we may see Nato confront the russian deployment insisting that the surrounded ISIS members are part of a GOOD anti syrian gov’t group. Assad had a thousand of these fighters surrounded and let them go back to lebanon,lets hope the russians won’t make that mistake.

  5. duncan mckean on September 23, 2015 at 9:04 pm

    way out their? what the heck.America turns on its own government and asks
    Russia or ?? to come to the rescue ? the dynamics are off the chart but the willingness is the genius to a plan?follow the willingness .keep the infrastructure at all cost.

  6. EVERMORE on September 23, 2015 at 6:39 pm

    How very interesting that Putin has made such a bold and effective move just as the avalanche of Islamic migrants/refugees is hitting Europe, then videos of racial chaos (Kurds v Turks) on the streets of Switzerland such as this: to really get people even more wound up which is by all accounts truly galvanising public opinion across the continent against the US and its allies actions and policies.

    Further to note that all the so called refugees want to go straight to Germany – strange.
    Just as the Germany mega corp, Volkswagen, is hit by the US EPA with a reported multi billion dollar fine.
    Just as the US is about to position 20 upgraded/new nuclear warheads onto German soil.
    (hm, all sounding very “Madrid Circular” Dr Farrell).

    But back to Putin though for a moment. People have often suggested that Putin’s actions are chess moves across the geopolitical board but I’d like to suggest that they highly influenced by his practice of the art and use of the philosophy of Judo.

    Israeli leadership may be insane but they are no fools: Mohammed (Netanyahu) has had to go to the Mountain (Putin), just possible because the “rules of engagement” on that country’s borders have suddenly been changed.
    How will the “Israel lobby” in the US react? At the next UN assembly we might be seeing some American oligarch banging his (or her) shoe on the rostrum with impotent fury, as the rest of the world looks on, not so much aghast as thoughtfully wondering what sort of system could have brought such persons to positions of power.

    • goshawks on September 23, 2015 at 11:19 am

      Looking at the photo in 21stCenturyWire of Putin and Nety shaking hands, I can just imagine Putin’s thoughts: “Your banksters sacked my country. Revenge is best served cold…”

    all I can say to this is:

    “the hope for the world will emerge out of Russia”- Edgar Cayce

    don’t know if this will be true or not but it seems like the only nation on this planet that is now begging/working for sanity is Russia (if my read sources are correct Russia has banned all GMO products- seems like a good start)-

    • DaphneO on September 23, 2015 at 6:22 pm

      Larry, that is my hope too.
      We may be proven wrong, and we may find out after hearing Putin’s speech to the UN shortly.
      But I can’t see much hope for our planet unless Russia HAS gone down a different path at this point in history to the west.

  11. marcos toledo on September 23, 2015 at 8:38 am

    You have to say this for the Russians they will support their friends and allies. Unlike the West who will throw them under bus or oncoming train. Once they out live their usefulness the Russians are in for the long haul not the short run.

  12. Anthroposophe on September 23, 2015 at 8:35 am

    I think there is some confusion as to the statements attributed to Reuters. Dr. Farrell is quoting from the end of the article which is commentary by 21st Century Wire on the Reuters piece (which cites the usual anonymous sources, is much blander and in line with standard MSM double-speak.) 21st Century Wire is an alternative media source. To quote their website: 21st Century Wire is News for the Waking Generation™. We are a North American and European-based, grass-roots, independent blog and news service offering geopolitical news and analysis, working with an array of volunteer contributors who write and help aggregate news and opinion from around the world.

      “(1) the title of the article: Russian Boots on Ground in Syria Seeking to Destroy Western Created ISIS,(emphasis added) and (2) the fact that it is Reuters which has run the story under this headline.”

      Rueters did not run this story, 21 Century did.

    I would venture to say that pipeline might just have to take another route.
    How hard can it be to find convoys of white Toyotas in satellite imagery? Follow that up with drone flyovers and it should be similar to shooting ducks on a pond.
