End of ISIS?
Putin 'sending 150,000 soldiers to
Syria to WIPE OUT evil Islamic State'
once and for all

By SCOTT CAMPBELL
UPDATED: 13:38, Mon, Oct 5, 2015

The Russian leader is reportedly mounting an enormous military mission to take control of the terror group's stronghold of Raqqa.

The city is the self-declared capital of ISIS in Syria and is patrolled by as many as 5,000 jihadi members.

Putin is set to mobilise 150,000 reservists who he conscripted into the military earlier this week.

An insider revealed: "It is very clear that Russia wants to sweep up the west of the country, taking Raqqa and all the oil and gas resources around Palmyra.

"This is fast becoming a race to Raqqa – to secure the oil fields they need to cleanse the region of insurgents, and the IS capital is vital to do that."

Quote
Dr Afzal Ashraf said ISIS has become its own worst enemy with its campaign of terror against the West, which has prompted an international backlash.

He said: "This mythical state will disappear in a matter of hours once the international community decides to act.

"It won't take very long at all to drive them, if not out of all of Iraq or Syria, then certainly the majority of their territories.

"They will hide in towns, but I would say do not to follow them as they would use innocent civilians as human shields."

ISIL Militants Fleeing Russian
Airstrikes in Syria – Lebanese Media

MIDDLE EAST
20:25 03.10.2015 (updated 20:43 03.10.2015)

Members of the ISIL terrorist group have reportedly started to evacuate their families from the city of Raqqah after the start of Russia’s military operation in Syria, the Arabic television channel Al-Mayadin revealed.

According to media reports, terrorists evacuate their families to Iraq, fearing the renewed start of Russia’s airstrikes.

During the first two days of the military operation, Russian aircraft reportedly hit over 10 targets, among them an explosives factory, an arms depot and an ISIL coordination center.

A representative of the Russian Defense Ministry confirmed that a secured command post, an underground bunker as well as an explosives and ammunition warehouse have been destroyed as a result of a surgical airstrike near the city of Raqqa.

Russia started its military operation in Syria on September 30, after receiving an official request from the president of the country Bashar al-Assad.

Russia Intensifies Syria Bombing as Cameron Joins Criticism


Russia intensified its bombardment of militant targets in Syria with warplanes flying more than 20 missions, as U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron joined calls for Moscow to change course in an intervention he described as a “grave mistake.”
The Russian Defense Ministry said on Sunday that 10 Islamic State positions in Syria had been attacked in the past 24 hours, including militant training camps in Raqqa and Idlib provinces. Russian strikes have broken “the management and logistics of the terrorist organization” and caused “significant damage to the infrastructure used for preparation of terrorist attacks,” the ministry said on its website. Laser-guided and concrete-piercing ordnance had been used, it said.

EXCLUSIVE: Russian jets 'intercept' US predator drones over Syria, officials say

Russian fighter jets shadowed U.S. predator drones on at least three separate occasions high above Syria since the start of Russia’s air campaign last week, according to two U.S. officials briefed on this latest intelligence from the region.

“The first time it happened, we thought the Russians got lucky. Then it happened two more times,” said one official.

Both officials said that the incidents took place over ISIS-controlled Syria, including its de facto headquarters in Raqqa, as well as along the Turkish-Syrian border near Korbani. Another occurred in the northwest, near the highly contested city of Aleppo.

The U.S. military's MQ-1 Predator drone is not a stealth aircraft.

"It is easy to see a predator on radar," said one official.

The Russians have not attempted to shoot down any of the U.S. drones, but instead have flown "intercept tracks," a doctrinal term meaning the Russians flew close enough to make their presence felt, according to one official.

Theres going to have to be some sort of military coup or some sort of semi mutiny in order for the militia to be relevant. The propaganda against the militia is too strong. The coup or mutiny will also help allying and helping Russia defeat ISIS.

The Truth About Pipeline Politics in the Syrian Proxy War https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EpMCs2XlDRE

Oct 7, 2015 DAHBOO777


Germany’s industry can’t exist without cheap Russian Gas transported cheaply via pipelines.

So the U.S. asking Europe to slit it’s own throat making war with Russia is ludicrous.

Gas brought in via shipping is too expensive so not doable for Europe’s industry.

And if China, Russia, Europe and Iran work together there’s plenty of energy for everybody for a growing industry with giant emerging markets in all of the above countries mentioned.

This could be a new ‘Golden Age’ but the U.S. doesn’t like that and is doing everything to set the world on fire wherever they get the change.

It has become the empire of evil with a lot of fake Christians.

Russia ready to consider anti-Daesh
operation in Iraq: Parliament speaker

Wed Oct 7, 2015 12:19AM

Russia says it would consider an airborne operation against Daesh Takfiri terrorists in Iraq if it receives a formal request from the Arab country’s authorities for conducting such a military campaign.

“In case of an official address from Iraq to the Russian Federation, the leaders of our country would study the political and military expediency of our air force’s participation in an air operation. Presently we have not received such an address,” Valentina Matviyenko, the Russian Federation Council speaker, told reporters during an official visit to Jordan on Tuesday, RT reported.

Matviyenko’s remarks came three days after Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said that he had the government’s approval to welcome Russia’s air campaign against terrorists inside Iraq. It has been the second time Abadi has welcomed Russians to conduct anti-terror air campaign against Daesh in his country since September 30, when Russia launched its military campaign against Takfiri terrorists operating in Syria upon a request from the Damascus government.

Russian Cruise Missiles Help Syrians Go on the Offensive

By ANNE BARNARD and ANDREW E. KRAMEROCT. 7, 2015


BEIRUT, Lebanon — Russia and Syria unleashed a coordinated assault by land, air and sea on Wednesday, seeking to reverse recent gains by rebel groups that were beginning to encroach on the Syrian coast, a critical bastion of power for President Bashar al-Assad.

Moscow said it had fired 26 cruise missiles at Syrian targets from naval vessels in the Caspian Sea, 900 miles away, though it was not immediately clear whether they had struck in the area of the ground offensive.

Although in its early stages, the coordinated attack has revealed the outline of a newly deepened and operationally coordinated alliance among Syria, Iran, Russia and the Lebanese Shiite militant group Hezbollah, according to an official with the alliance, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss military strategy.

The official said the Russian intervention — a result of plans by the four allies over at least four to six months — had rejuvenated Syrian government forces and put to rest any doubts about Russia’s commitment to the Syrian president.

Iraqis Look to 'Hajji Putin'
to Save Them From ISIL

2:57 08.10.2015

Following the success of the Russian airstrikes in Syria, and Washington’s
failure to do so thus far, Iraqis are looking for new ways to wipe out
the self-proclaimed Islamic State terrorist group. Many are calling
for the assistance of "Hajji Putin."


With Russian missile strikes dealing significant damage to IS infrastructure in Syria, many Iraqis are beginning to question the effectiveness of the US-led coalition.

"I have been waiting for Russia to get involved in the fight against Daesh," Mohammed Karim Nihaya, a painter living in Baghdad, told Agence France-Presse, using the Arabic acronym for ISIL.

"They get results. The United States and its
allies on the other hand have been bombing
for a year and achieved nothing."


Quote
...Putin, who is an Orthodox man, is defending us…Maybe he really is a Shiite and we didn’t know it."

The Russian president has also become a bit of an Iraqi Internet celebrity, with some circulating rumors that Putin may be able to trace his roots back to the Middle East.

that missile strike was also a message to Kiev

it also shows that if Moscow wanted to invade Ukraine, it could do it in 24 hours . . .

dont those claims from Ukraine about 'russian invasion' look silly when you see the missiles launched at Syria ?

Islamic State group seizes
villages north  of Aleppo city

Published: October 9, 2015

BEIRUT (AP) — Islamic State militants seized a string of villages from rival insurgents north of Aleppo city Friday, in a surprise attack that came despite intensive Russian airstrikes that Moscow insists are targeting the extremist group, activists said.

Iranian state media reported that a senior commander in Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guard was killed by the Islamic State group on the outskirts of Aleppo city, but it was not immediately clear whether Gen. Hossein Hamedani's death was related to the new IS offensive.

Quote
In a surprise attack, the Islamic State group seized a string of villages from rebels in Aleppo province Friday. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the advance by the extremists, which began Thursday night, is the most significant in months. It said the militants seized the villages of Tal Qrah, Tal Sousin and Kfar Qares north of Aleppo city.

The group also seized a former army base known as the Infantry Academy that rebels captured from the Syrian army two years ago. The base is located around 10 miles (16 kilometers) northeast of Aleppo city and about one mile (1.6 kilometers) away from a government-held industrial zone on the northern edge of Aleppo.

FROM JOSEPH FARAH'S G2 BULLETIN
RUSSIA TARGETING NORTH CAUCASUS
JIHADIS LINKED TO ISIS

Expert disputes U.S. claim airstrikes in Syria aimed at 'moderates'
F. MICHAEL MALOOF

WASHINGTON – While the United States insists that Russian airstrikes in Syria are targeting “moderate” opposition forces and not ISIS fighters, a Middle East expert claims the targets are jihadists from Russia itself, many of whom have joined various Sunni jihadi groups, including ISIS, according to a new report from Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.

Middle East expert Mairbek Vatchagaev told G2 Bulletin the concern for the Russian government is North Caucasus fighters in Syria returning home to continue waging jihad.

“It is unclear why Russia sat back for so long and allowed the militants in Syria to consolidate,” said Vatchagaev, of the Washington-based think-tank Jamestown Foundation. “Now, they pose a danger not only to the Russian North Caucasus, but also to areas in Central Asia adjacent to Russia.”

Quote
“Thus, Russia will try not only to help President (Bashar) al-Assad, but also to kill as many of its own citizens and citizens from states neighboring Russia who are fighting in the Middle East, before they return to their homelands,” he said in an email.

Saudi Arabia increasing weapon supplies to Syrian rebels following Russian airstrikes – report
9 Oct, 2015 - RT

Saudi Arabia has stepped up its weapon supplies to three different rebel groups in Syria following Russian airstrikes, a government official told the BBC. It comes after Moscow launched its Air Force anti-terror operation at the request of Assad’s government.

Rebel groups fighting the Syrian Army will receive an increase in modern, high-powered weaponry, including guided anti-tank weapons, a "well-placed" Saudi official told the BBC on condition of anonymity.

He said the recipients include Jaish al-Fatah (Army of Conquest), the Free Syrian Army (FSA), and the Southern Front. The official stressed that Islamic State (formerly ISIS/ISIL) and the al-Nusra Front would not be receiving any weapons.

Al Nusrah Front, allies form new coalition for battle in Aleppo
Thomas Joscelyn - July 3, 2015 - The Long War Journal - excerpt

Coalitions including the Al Nusrah Front and Ahrar al Sham

Jaysh al Fateh (“Army of Conquest”) in the Idlib province was the first such coalition formed this year. It took just several days for its member groups to route Bashar al Assad’s forces from the city of Idlib in late March. And the Al Nusrah Front showcased its use of American-made TOW missiles early on in the battle as the jihadists destroyed Syrian regime tanks on the city’s perimeter.

In addition to Al Nusrah and Ahrar al Sham, the original founding organizations of Jaysh al Fateh included Jund al Aqsa, Liwa al Haqq, Jaysh al Sunna, Ajnad al Sham, and Faylaq al Sham. The Long War Journal has identified Jund al Aqsa as as front organization for al Qaeda. Other groups joined Jaysh al Fateh in Idlib as well.

Jaysh al Fateh’s successes continued in the weeks that followed the fall of Idlib, as the insurgents captured the Al Mastoumah military camp and the town of Ariha, as well as other formerly regime-controlled areas.

EU Demands 'Immediate' Halt to Russia Strikes on Syrian Rebels

LUXEMBOURG: The EU demanded today the "immediate" halt of Russian air strikes against moderate Syrian rebel groups, adding that a lasting peace was impossible under Moscow-backed President Bashar al-Assad.

"The recent Russian military attacks that go beyond Daesh (Islamic State) and other UN-designated terrorist groups, as well as on the moderate opposition, are of deep concern and must cease immediately," the EU's 28 foreign ministers said in a statement.

The ministers, meeting in Luxembourg for talks dominated by the Syrian crisis, said Russia's military action only made the problem worse and weakened efforts to reach a peaceful solution.

"This military escalation risks prolonging the conflict, undermining a political process, aggravating the humanitarian situation and increasing radicalisation," they said.

They urged Russia to "focus its efforts on the common objective of achieving a political solution to the conflict."

The statement comes ahead of a summit of EU leaders on Thursday where Syria will also be high on the agenda.

US 'Disinformation War' Unable to Mar Russia's Military Success in Syria
            America's geo-strategists have been evidently outstripped by their Russian counterparts in Syria: by its swift and professional strikes against ISIL terrorists Moscow has dealt a blow to Zbigniew Brzezinski's idea that "the US had to move quickly to 'arrest' the Russia air and naval campaign to reestablish itself as the supreme power in the region," US columnist and managing editor for Veterans Today Jim W. Dean notes.
"It has been quite a show watching panic set in at the Pentagon, White House and NATO, as the modest Russian air campaign began tearing up the terrorist infrastructure in northern Syria. Forty percent is claimed to have been destroyed the first week in preparation for a Syrian ground offensive, which has now started," Dean narrated in his article for New Eastern Outlook.

In response, Washington's tame media sources unleashed a real "disinformation terror war," banging the drums over Russia's strikes against what they called "non-ISIL" targets and "moderate" Syrian rebels.

"Defense chief Ashland Carter made a huge mistake in charging the Russian air campaign with attacking civilians and moderate rebels. The discussions of the Pentagon using all the al-Qaeda affiliates against Islamic State because they were the only ground force available had already been published," the US columnist remarked.


To make matters even worse, the Pentagon's $500 million Free Syrian Army training program has proved completely inefficient, causing suspicion that it has been "nothing more than a ruse to funnel manpower and weapons to America's new al-Qaeda terrorist army."
Incredible as it may seem "the American people and the world [have been] told that the Russian-Syrian campaign is destabilizing the region because it might eliminate too many terrorists," Dean noted.

"If we let them continue lying to us on this scale it just puts us all in more danger," he warned.

Official: Russia ‘deliberately targeting’ US-backed forces in Syria


Will Syria conflict shift to superpower showdown with Putin?

Moscow is "deliberately targeting" U.S.-backed forces in Syria as part of a military campaign that has killed up to 150 U.S.-trained rebels, a U.S. official told Fox News.

The claim comes as the U.S. and Russian militaries try to reach an agreement about flight safety in the skies over Syria. Officials from both countries are holding their third videoconference on the issue Wednesday, as U.S.-led coalition and Russian aircraft look to avoid collisions as they launch airstrikes into Syria.

But even as they try to "de-conflict," evidence is mounting that Russia's air campaign is targeting more than just the Islamic State.

"Putin is deliberately targeting our forces," a U.S. official, who is disappointed in the U.S. response to Russia, told Fox News.

"Our guys are fighting for their lives," said the official, estimating up to 150 CIA-trained moderate rebels have been killed by the Russians.

The Obama administration recently ended its troubled program to train select Syrian rebels, but has continued to equip the opposition. Over the weekend, the U.S. military airdropped 50 tons of small arms ammo and grenades in northern Syria.

But there are doubts as to whether the administration would go any further to protect the rebels from Russian airstrikes.

Awesome hubris coming from the US govcorp.

It's like saying, “We're trying to rob a bank here. And you cops are interfering with our efforts!”

“You can stop the 'extreme' thieves. But don't interfere with our 'moderate' thieves.”

“Our amazing powers of doublethink will defeat all military resistance and force world opinion to bend to our will!”
The number one cause of all human poverty, misery, and death is not global warming. It’s GLOBAL LYING.

Before Putin Showed up, 11 Other Countries Were Already Bombing Syria

Russia has struck over 110 ISIS targets in Syria in just two weeks. Over 40% of the Islamic State’s infrastructure has reportedly been destroyed already.

We lost track somewhere (sadly), but it was recently noted by Putin that, by the time Russia showed up and started systematically destroying ISIS in short order, there were already 11 other countries bombing Syria.

Eleven other countries…

In fact, it has been over a year since America started an airstrike campaign over there.

What does that tell you?

It hardly needs to be pointed out how blatantly obvious it is that, regardless of how many billions the American people were told just had to be spent “fighting the terrorists” over there, this was never for one hot second about the West actually stopping ISIS.
[/i]
The only way that lie works is if the Western coalition is the most inept terror rescue team ever invented in the history of time.

i think you are both right - its not one OR the other - its BOTH and "others"

(a) Israeli = Atheist State + NO OIL

(b) Arabia = Oil + Kings

(c) Natives = Persians, Kurds, Alloites, etc . . .

(d) Imperial players = France, Britain, America, Turkey, etc . . .


impossible to describe just how complex it is, for example just to list and describe the participants in israeli elections would take weeks of research.

also when i listed 'natives' whole communities that have continuously lived in their land in their corner of the middle east. niether the Arabs nor the Israelis have done that, - which is why they make the loudest - most bogus claims.

Russia's Syria force grows to 4,000, U.S. officials say
November 4, 2015 - Jonathan Landay, Phil Stewart and Mark Hosenball - Reuters

Moscow's military force in Syria has grown to about 4,000 personnel, but this and more than a month of Russian air strikes have not led to pro-government forces making significant territorial gains, U.S. security officials and independent experts said.

Moscow, which has maintained a military presence in Syria for decades as an ally of the ruling Assad family, had an estimated 2,000 personnel in the country when it began air strikes on Sept. 30. The Russian force has since roughly doubled and the number of bases it is using has grown, U.S. security officials said.

The Russians have suffered combat casualties, including deaths, said three U.S. security officials familiar with U.S. intelligence reporting, adding that they did not know the exact numbers.

The United States has extensive intelligence assets in the region, along with satellite imagery and electronic eavesdropping coverage and contacts with moderate Sunni and Kurdish rebels on the ground in Syria.
