COMING: JOINT RUSSIAN-ISRAELI WARGAMES?

COMING: JOINT RUSSIAN-ISRAELI WARGAMES?

As the reader might have gathered from the previous two-days' blogs, the world is an increasingly strange place. And as I pointed out in last Thursday's News and Views from the Nefarium, nothing signals how strange it is becoming other than the growing ties between Russia and Israel, with the latter country's Prime Minister Netanyahu's recent visit to Moscow, and signs of growing Russian-Israeli cooperation, not the least in Syria. But there's more looming on the horizon, and again, it's huge news, as exemplified in this article shared by Mr. G.K.:

First Ever Israeli-Russian War Game is Coming

In this article a great deal more information is offered about those recent talks between Mr. Putin and Mr. Netanyahu, and about their expanding ties; consider only the geopolitical earthquakes of the opening paragraphs:

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu decided at their June 7 meeting in Moscow to deepen the military ties between the Russian and Israeli armed forces, debkafile reports exclusively from is military and intelligence sources. It was a historic decision that spells the end of the IDF’s unique relationship with the US military.
The head of the IDF’s military intelligence branch, Maj. Gen. Hertzi Halevi, and Mossad chief Yossi Cohen also participated in the meeting.
Our sources report that Putin and Netanyahu decided that a joint exercise by the Israeli and Russian naval and air forces will be held this summer as part of the first stage of expanded ties.
It will mark the first time in modern Middle East military history that Russian military planes take off from an Arab country, Syria’s Hmeymim airbase, and Russian warships sail out of their bases in Tartus and Latakia, for joint maneuvers with the Israeli air force and navy.
debkafile’s military sources add that, ahead of the exercise, the joint mechanism that coordinates Russian and Israeli air flights in Syrian airspace will be expanded.
According to those sources, the bilateral decision for the joint war game was tied to an agreement to allow Russian gas companies to compete for contracts to develop Israel’s Leviathan and Tamar offshore gas fields.
Netanyahu said June 7 in Moscow, “Our doors are open now to all companies from all countries that have substantial experience in developing gas fields, including Russia of course.”
Putin had tried repeatedly to win a foothold for Russian companies, especially energy giant Gazprom, in the development of Israel’s offshore gas fields and export industry. The Russian leader tried to convince Netanyahu by saying that the presence of the Russian navy and air force in the area would guarantee that no Arab or Muslim military force, such as those of Iran, Syria and Hizballah, would attack the gas fields. (Emphasis added)

There's a great deal here that invites some high octane speculation, but I want to focus on the presence of IDF military and Mossad intelligence chiefs during the Putin-Netanyahu summit, and of Mr. Putin's alleged remarks to Netanyahu concerning Russian military guarantees of Israeli oil and gas fields against potential threats. It is to be noted that in his list of potential threats, Mr. Putin mentions Iran, Syria, and Hezbollah(Hizbollah), but it does not take much imagination to see that behind the carefully couched diplomatic language, he might as well have mentioned the government of Ottomaniac Tayyip Erdogan, ISIS, and Saudi Arabia, all of which, as others have noted, have their own unique ties to the USA.

So what's going on here? I suspect that if one puts oneself into Israeli shoes for a moment, that Mr. Netanyahu's government has taken a difficult but necessary long-term decision to cultivate ties with Russia, given the USA sponsorship of radical Islamic groups, and its connivance with Mr. Erdogan and others. Similarly, Israel was not happy with the recent US-Iran nuclear deal, and as Russia has proven a worthy diplomatic adversary, and demonstrated that its military capabiltiies are anything but the pushover that the West would want them to be in its recent intervention in Syria. To put it "country simple", American foreign policy in the region since 9/11 has been a disaster, and Israel's reliance on American unipolarism, and its own "special relationship" in the light of the debacle of the last fifteen years, have forced a strategic reassessment. And fortunately, the Soviet regime is no more, allowing both Tel Aviv and Moscow maneuvering room with each other which they previously lacked. On Mr. Putin's side, we've noted in previous blogs that he has increasingly challenged the globalist dogma of the obsolescence of the nation state, invoking the UN charter on the right of sovereign nations to determine their internal politics. And by the logic of his own commitments, this would perforce include Israel, which, under Netanyahu, is under pressure from the West for a "two state" solution to the "Palestinian problem."

Where all this will go remains to be seen, but in the light of other recent stories - the CIA "subsumption" of the German BND for example - one cannot expect a diminishment of Israel-Russian cooperation, particularly in the terrorism-intelligence fields. This will deepen, and I suspect dramatically so. The real question remains how Iran will respond to these developments, and how Russia will handle it. One should not expect Russia to abandon Iran, but by the same token, if Mr. Putin continues to play the very clever dipolmacy he has been playing, expect China to assume more of the role of dealing with Iran.

As for Israel, it's clear the US is in the process of alienating yet another long-standing ally. And the trend won't change any time soon.

But this is a case where your guess is as good as mine(as most cases here are), so this is also a case of you tell me.

See you on the flip side...

    Nah. Fake, phony and false.
    Why no mentions ANYWHERE else, especially Russian affiliated outlets?

    Consider the source, a known dis-info outlet for da guyz from TelAviv.
    “By way of deception, thou shalt wage disinformation”

  2. ahh, you guys are all too suspicious.

    probably mama bauer got upset over dinner and demanded that everyone just get along. bibi and vlad are doing just that. come on. now let everyone else join in to the peaceful war games and everything will be just fine.

    dya think any other countries’ll start producing organics for export soon?

    along the lines of the point mq brought up earlier. curiouser and curiouser. what do bibi’s and vlad’s kids do?

  3. Dr. Farrell: since I look at all news events within the framework of the Nazi International, doesn’t it seem as if the Exotic Energy states are coming together now? There is a very strong element within Old Nazi that helped create the State if Israel. So it shouldn’t surprise us that New Nazi is again focusing attention on Jerusalem. Just like the Knights Templar and all the rest of them.

  4. I would take this as Russia (Putin & Co.) doing a carrot-and-stick approach to Israel:

    It is pretty obvious that ISIS/Daeash/All-CIA-Duh is a cover for Israel (via Turkey) milking the Syrian & Iraqi oilfields. I suspect a bargain has been made where Russia forces Israel to stop aiding and supplying their ‘insurgents’ (under penalty of bombing), counterbalanced by an offer to develop/shield oilfields just off of Israel’s coastline.

    This would be just like Putin to change the ‘fundamentals’ underlying the current conflict, while offering Israel a gracious way out…

    1. Yes. ;-). More so than others, Bibi knows that Russia can shut down Israeli, Saudi, Turk & U.S. weapons with Russian defensive tech.

      If Bibi sees that he’s about to get beat, Bibi knows enough to salvage partial victory from sure defeat – if only to ensure his own survival.

      The Putin-Bibi deal is probably NOT only for oil/gas Biz but ALSO for a comprehensive Mideast peace (which Rotten-Childs, Nazi International & Level-3 don’t yet want, since they’re still holding out Western global economic hegemony and/or WW3).

      As per Ben Fulford, negotiations with Rotten-Child are now underway (after Bilderberg meeting). Thus, ‘the fan is hitting the sheep.’ ;-).

  5. Ok so Russia and Israel are getting chummy, but why do they have to have “war Games”, how about a football match, anything but war games.
    This geopolitical world is getting wackier by the day, and if Joseph can’t make head or tail out of it, then who can.

    1. @DownunderET: *IF* Putin & Bibi have been discussing a comprehensive Mideast peace since October 2015 (with Russia providing credible national security guarantees for Israel in exchange for SUBSTANTIAL concessions by Israel, then “wargames” makes sense. Football might not work. ;-).

  6. Russia and Israel now have an enemy in common in Turkey (and occupied Northern Cyprus). I would pay close attention to this.

    Goshawks,
    With the new system; put a comment here;
    to check
    Robert’s comment
    under Germany’s BND June 12
    …scroll down to Robert June 13 @ 3:13PM.

    A hassle, to be sure, but it be interesting…
    to see what they’d come up with next?!

  8. Since October 2015, Putin & Bibi have been negotiating a comprehensive Mideast peace settlement — with Russia guaranteeing Israeli national security and with Israel making MANY unexpected concessions to get such guarantees.

    Joint Russia-Israel military war games are just the latest public proof that such a comprehensive Mideast peace settlement may well be in the works.

    Those who favor WW3 are not happy with what Putin & Bibi are doing. So what!?

    1. Nearly there. That gravy train will keep flowing in any event as it’s hardwired and an AIPAC blood oath, and they will get even more going forward — to woo the prodigal son to return.

      Just business, nothing personal.

  9. Well I just don’t know what to think really. I don’t trust Putin any more than I trust most other world leaders, and I don’t understand what he actually accomplished in Syria other than propping up Assad, because he wasn’t fighting ISIS. And I am sure the Israeli Air Force is quite capable of defending their gas fields. So what’s putins real goal here? I really don’t know.

  10. The Family (various owners of the world we live in) is having a spat and so the world (nation states) are realigning (or being realigned) along the family lines. It will be interesting to see how many allies the US/London Corporation gets in the end when the current system is crashed.

    Right now it looks like the US/London Corporation is getting nothing but the small slave labor nation states and the big economic powers are headed to the East.

    Of course, it is ALL a show for the little peons of the world. The Owners ARE family after all and will come back together as one to keep lording it over the rest of humanity.

    The State of Zion, er Israel is not a democracy.
    Where are there ANY democracies?
    The oligarchies are choosing sides?
    What system is going to trash the financialized current system?
    Where are the dent jubilees?

      1. Robert,
        They’ve been celebrating the debt jubilee since 2008 — it’s called TARP QE and NIRP and trillions have been tossed about to the money boys. It isn’t for us peons; you have to be in the Big Club.

        1. Robert Barricklow

          In 2008 the choice was between
          saving the economy or the banks.
          Their corporate government chose them,
          the private Banks.

        2. Robert Barricklow

          As you know Basta, extractive finance leaves economies emaciated by monopolizing their income growth and then using its takings in predatory ways to intensify the degree of exploitation, not to pull the economy out of debt deflation. The financial aim is simply to extract income in the form of interest, fees and amortization on debts and unpaid bills.

        3. Robert Barricklow

          Basta, to add insult to injury, this financial income is predatory, and capital gains are not earned by one’s own labor and enterprise, the 1% are not to be credited with having created the 95 percent of added income they have obtained since 2008. They have…
          TAKEN It FROM THE 99%!

        4. Robert Barricklow

          Goshawks,
          Monopolizing. The tax system’s interest write offs goes to the banks, for one. There’s a systemic monopolization of our current parasitic financial system.

          1. It’s to get us fools to kill each other off for the sick entertainment of our masters. They have worrying that the government wanting to takeaway our weapons when it’s access to food, water, shelter we should really be worrying about.

          2. Robert Barricklow

            Right Marcos.
            That’s why the circus of mass shootings, wars, race, religion – why all are being fed into the fires of hate – to keep us from removing those who are The Real McCoys that are engineering these famines, the poverty, the misery, the killings – those very human, needless tragedies.

        1. Robert Barricklow

          Dana Thomas,
          The Max Keiser Report continually brings up this common practice of Debt Jubilees in past economies.
          Max & Stacy ask why haven’t they?
          It’s really a no brainer!
          Where indeed!

      2. Robert Barricklow

        Finally, the point of all this is that -as we know at this site – the education process has been FUBAR’d.
        For example, their hero, Milton Friedman, adopted the rentier motto/There Is No Such Thing As A Free Lunch.
        So, no such things as parasites?

        1. Robert Barricklow

          The classical concept of economic rent has been censored by calling finance, real estate and monopolies – industries. The result is that about half of what the media report as industrial profits are FIRE-sector rents. And, most of the remaining profits are monopoly rents from patents and other legal privileges. Rents are conflated with profits This again, is the terminology of financial intruders and rentiers seeking to erase the language and concepts of Adam Smith, Ricardo and their contemporaries depicting rents as parasitic!

        2. Robert Barricklow

          Their whole logic is designed to make it appear that austerity, rent extraction and debt deflation is a step forward, not killing the economy[which in fact it does].Future generations may see the degree to which this self-destructive ideology has reversed the Enlightenment and is carving up today’s global economy as one of the greatest oligarchic takeovers in the history of mankind/civilization.
          The devil wins at the point where he is able to convince the world that…
          he doesn’t exist.

  12. Lets face it which major power is physically closer to Israel in that region. It’s Russia not the CSA and who knows the area intimately and for centuries dealt with the people and respect them. Netanyahu knows where his and Israel future lays and in the long run it’s not with Crazy Eddie.

  13. OK, this is off-topic but I didn’t know where else to put it at the moment.

    This regards the Orlando shooting, but suddenly opens up an entirely different can of worms.
    Does the US have a habit of collecting ex-Presidential candidates from certain countries? And why do the offspring of such seem to get into trouble?

    http://www.cbsnews.com/news/orlando-shooting-omar-mateen-father-seddique-mateen-taliban-god-punish-gays/

    In his Facebook videos, the alleged gunman’s father has often appeared wearing a military uniform and declaring himself the leader of a “transitional revolutionary government” of Afghanistan. He claims to have his own intelligence agency and close ties to the U.S. Congress — assets he says he will use to subvert Pakistani influence and take control of Afghanistan.

    After watching his videos — none of which were recorded in English — CBS News’ Ahmad Mukhtar said it seemed possible that Seddique Mateen is delusional. “He thinks he runs a government in exile and will soon take the power in Kabul in a revolution,” notes Mukhtar.

    Remember the “clock bomb” kid in Texas?
    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-34551890

    The Texan teenager was pulled out of class and handcuffed because a teacher mistook his clock for a bomb.
    His arrest was sharply criticised and the police declined to file charges.
    The boy’s father, Mohamed Hassan al-Sufi, is a Sudanese immigrant to the US and a former presidential candidate who ran against Mr Bashir.

      1. Crud I hit “report comment” instead of reply. I hope you don’t end up in purgatory…

        You should check out Dave McGowan’s “Weird scenes inside the Canyon” about Laurel Canyon (around LA) and the rather strange and frequent coincidence with so-called hippies/musicians and military involvement (family or the person themselves).
        We’ve gone deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole. The caterpillar looks like the least weird one at this point…
