Yesterday, you'll recall, I blogged about the strange statement of Russian Major General Igor Konshenkov, a statement that was clearly directed to the war party in Washington. Konshenkov, you'll recall, stated that the Russian air and missile defense systems in Syria were now fully operational, and that they had an operational range that would be a "surprise" to Washington and to any and all "unidentified flying objects" entering Syrian airspace. As I pointed out, the more prosaic and probable meaning of that statement was simply "any unknown" object entering Syrian airspace not supplying proper electronic "ident" or identification from transponders or in response to commands from Russian and/or Syrian authorities to identify itself (or be shot down). But, as in the case of Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova's use of "tectonic consequences" should Washington pursue its war path, General Konshenkov's message carried deeper and undeniable implications, for "unidentified flying objects", he would know, carries a certain colloquial meaning in American English which is unavoidable. That colloquial meaning is simply "flying saucer," i.e., a nuts-and-bolts advanced technology not originating from earth or humans, and a nuts-and-bolts technology that originates from advanced human black projects. Interpreted with this in mind, General Konshenkov's remarks take on a whole new and much deeper, mysterious, and more profound set of meanings and implications, meanings and implications that imply some "off-world, outer-space" connection to Middle Eastern geopolitics.

As I also pointed out yesterday, his was not the only such strange remark about the Middle East; the other was made by Iraqi Transportation minister, Mr. Kazem Finjan, according to this story (again, shared by many regular readers here):

'Ancient aliens' built world’s first airport 7,000 years ago – Iraqi Minister

Notably, this story appeared a couple of days prior to General Konashenkov's remarks, thus providing an intriguing backdrop and context for his warnings to Washington. And notably, it was reported also in RT, Russia's English language news outlet. According to this story, Minister Finjan “ancient aliens” built earth’s first airport 7,000 years ago in the Middle East - and used it for interplanetary missions.

Getting ever so slightly sidetracked during a press conference to announce the construction of a real-life, modern day airport in Dhi Qar, southern Iraq, Finjan suggested spacecraft launched from the same area in 5,000 BC discovered Pluto and the mythical planet of Nibiru.

Sumerians inhabited what was Mesopotamia and, according to Finjan, were aided in developing this space station by visiting aliens.

"The first airport that was established on planet earth was in this place. It was constructed 5,000 years before Christ,” Finjan told a baffled gallery of journalists.

"The particularity of this place is that it remains the safest for the landing and takeoff of aircraft, due to favourable weather conditions. When the Sumerians settled on this land, they were aware of this and have chosen specifically for their flights to other planets."

And RT article goes on to note that Minister Finjan is "well-read" and that he himself suggested the "proof" for his assertions likes in the works of well-known alternative researcher, the late Zechariah Sitchin, who (let it be noted, though this is not mentioned in the RT article) headquartered his antique import-export business in Rockefeller Center.

This provides, needless to say, a curious context for General Konashenkov's remarks merely two days later, and even provides a curious backdrop for the whole western invasion of Iraq that occurred after 9/11 and the Baghdad Museum Looting, events about which I have maintained high octane speculations. In effect, I and other researchers in the alternative research community have long suspected that the invasion was about more than just oil or destabilizing the Baathist secular regime of Saddam Hussein at the behest of Israel and Saudi Arabia. I have long suspected that it was also about (1) kicking out the French and German archaeological teams digging up that country for Saddam, and thus preventing them from gaining any knowledge or access to any information about (2) any ancient advanced technology that might remain there, including advanced weaponry. I have even gone so far as to suggest in my various books and interviews that the whole excuse for that invasion - to prevent Saddam from acquiring weapons of mass destruction - may have been about precisely that, but while the world was thinking in terms of atomic, biological, and chemical weapons, that what was really meant to "those in the know" were WMD's of a far different and much more ancient sort, the so-called "Tablets of Destinies" that form the subject of so much ancient Mesopotamian lore about the wars of the gods, and which were, in fact, the WMD's by which those gods fought those wars. Minister Finjan's reference to Mr. Sitchin's works could thus be intended to be read as a message, for Mr. Sitchin talked in those works precisely about those wars, and those WMD "tablets of destinies." Mr. Finjan could be saying "we know full well why you invaded."

This is, of course, all the highest octane of high octane speculations. But there's more context here that suggests that much deeper agendas are in play than we've been told. Assad's regime in Syria is precisely a Baathist, secular regime. And Syria, like Iraq, has antiquities. And if you've been following the work of Dr. Heather Lynn, she claims that there are large corporate interests - think Thyssen and Germany! - that were involved in archaeological digs in Syria. Libya, and Egypt, both targets of destabilization efforts, also have antiquities.

So, you may call me crazy (and I may just be), but I suspect that when one weighs such things objectively, and parses these statements carefully, that there is a much deeper agenda going on in the Middle East than merely conventional geopolitics. At the minimum, what all this suggests is that there is a kind of archaeological and paleographical geopolitics also driving the madness, and perhaps, just perhaps, in conjunction with an "exopolitics" as well.

See you on the flip side...
