Democratic presidential front-runner, Hillary Clinton, issued bellicose threats against Russia, stating that “the facts raise serious issues about Russian interference in our elections, in our democracy.” Clinton has made clear her intention to pursue a massive escalation of the Syrian war and the broader US war drive against Russia if she wins the White House, saying during last year’s Democratic Party debate, “We have to stand up to his [Putin] bullying and specifically, in Syria.”
While the Obama White House prefers to delay a major escalation until after the elections, the weakness of the American position on the ground is forcing the administration to consider direct strikes against Damascus. Former Obama administration adviser, Dennis Ross, suggested last week that the White House should “begin speaking in a language that Mr. Assad and Mr. Putin can understand,” and employ direct cruise missile and drone strikes against Assad’s military infrastructure.
In the event that the government crushes the rebel attack, powerful factions within the US establishment can be counted on to press for the most aggressive measures against Assad, to be launched in the name of salvaging the American proxy forces, which have been built up at a cost of billions in CIA-supplied cash and weapons.
The US-backed Islamist-led militia coalition known as Jaysh al Fateh fighting against the Syrian government of Bashar al Assad have broken through the Russian and Syrian government encirclement of their positions inside the war-ravaged northern Syrian city of Aleppo, according to Western media.
During fierce battles over the weekend they overran military bases in southwest Aleppo and secured an access road connecting the city to the rest of the country. Russian war planes and Syrian and Iranian ground forces counterattacked Sunday, targeting the anti-Assad forces with aerial bombardments and artillery.
In recent weeks, as US intelligence outfitted the surrounded Al Qaeda “rebels” in preparation for a new bloody offensive, America’s top diplomat, Secretary of State John Kerry, has touted steps toward a US-Russian military cooperation pact in Syria. This seems to clearly be outside the scope of a President Madam Clinton, should the neocon win this years election.
Who’s side are we really on? Why is this happening? Get this murderous former Acting Director of CIA stating quite clearly how he wants to make Iran and Russia pay “a little price”. Have a 1 minute listen to this:
In an interview with US talk show host Charlie Rose, former acting director of the US Central Intelligence Agency, Michael Morell openly conspired to “covertly” kill Russians and Iranians in Syria.
On a side note, Aleppo was the home town of the Ansbach, Germany backpack suicide bomber, who, in an epic failure, only killed himself in an attempt kill many just a few hundred meters outside my own doorway. Take a look at the third update on that story HERE
Make sure Hillary supporters see this please. They might need a taste of her reality.
