Russia Warns Any Attempt By Obama To Arm Syrian Rebels Will Be Seen As A “Hostile Act”:

First, it was China which lodged a protest against the US defense bill, which was signed by Barack Obama late on Friday and which, among other things, contained a provision to establish as US “ministry of truth” and media propaganda. On Sunday, China lodged “stern representations” with the United States after Obama signed the NDAA into law which suggests a plan to conduct high-level military exchanges with self-ruled Taiwan. Part of the $618.7 billion National Defense Authorization Act “expresses the sense of Congress that (the U.S. Department of Defense) should conduct a program of senior military exchanges between the United States and Taiwan“.

In other words, it appears the Trump team is not the only one jeopardising the “One China” policy: as Reuters adds, in a statement late Sunday, China’s Foreign Ministry said it had lodged a protest with the United States over the Taiwan content of the act and expressed its strong opposition. Taiwan is Chinese territory and purely an internal matter, the ministry said. Continue reading »

SYRIA: Christians in Aleppo are rejoicing this Christmas after the Assad government has crushed the Obama-backed jihadist ‘rebels’ and Islamic State terrorists:

For all his faults, Bashar Assad has always protected minority groups in Syria.

Hundreds of residents gathered at Al Azizieh Square in western Aleppo on Tuesday, to watch the Christmas tree lights being turned on, in an attempt to establish some sense of normality in a city that has been a focal point of the Syrian conflict.

Syria Ambassador Reveals Names Of Alleged Western/Saudi/GCC Intelligence Agents Trapped In East Aleppo:

While the United States has harped for over five years about the “humanitarian crisis” and manufactured Syrian government “crimes against humanity,” the recent hysteria over “civilians” trapped in East Aleppo has really taken the cake. Now, however, after hearing about how Assad has “barrel bombed,” “tortured,” “burned alive,” and otherwise maimed civilians in East Aleppo (who are themselves committing mass suicide to evade Syrian government forces according to mainstream outlets), the real reason for the increase in hysteria has finally come to light.

5 Arrested After Egyptian Police Bust Staged Photo Shoot Of “Wounded Aleppo Children”:

Readers who have been following the crisis in Aleppo have seen media reports of videos and photos allegedly originating from innocent children victims, pleading against the advance of the Assad forces. And while there have been various accusations that these clips, like the infamous “chemical attack” YouTube clip from 2013, were staged, such reports were promptly slammed by the mainstream media as “fake news” and roundly ignored. However, if one ever needed a reason to be skeptical of claims, photographs, and/or videos coming out of the region, and the MSM’s appeals to readers emotions based on fabricated facts, Egyptian authorities have just provided it.

Egyptian police arrested five people in Port Said, Egypt for making staged “wounded children” photos, which they were planning to use to misrepresent on social media as photos of destruction and injured people in Syria’s Aleppo, the Egyptian Interior Ministry said on Monday. The group also made fake videos that purport to show the wreckage of air strikes in Aleppo. Continue reading »

Aleppo Liberated: Washington Post Finally Admits “Rebels” Invaded – Was No Uprising:

For months as terrorists backed by the United States, Turkey, and their Persian Gulf allies lost significant ground to the Syrian Arab Army in Syria’s northern city of Aleppo, the battle was characterized by the Western media and Western politicians as a brutal assault on the city’s residents – the extinguishing of a 6-year-long uprising.

However, in reality, that was never the case. And this reality is something careful readers will note even if they read the latest from one of the most prominent sources of pro-terrorist propaganda, the Washington Post.

Assad Retakes Aleppo: The Military Operation Is Over, Says Russian Envoy:

The Syrian war is on the verge of the biggest shift in the balance of power since 2011, with the Assad regime – with support from Russian forces – having retaken Aleppo. And, as Russia’s UN envoy Vitaly Churkin notes, an arrangement has been reached for militants to leave the besieged areas of eastern Aleppo “within hours”, confirming earlier media reports that Assad is about to have full reign of the hotly contested city – a symbolic center of the anti-Assad insurgency.

As RT futher adds citing Churkin, “the military operation in Eastern Aleppo is now over, and the Syrian government has begun restoring control.” Continue reading »

US Sends 200 More Troops To Syria Days After Obama Lifts Ban On Arms Supplies To Rebels:

With Assad on the verge of retaking Aleppo, and with it, regaining full control in the ongoing Syrian proxy war, we asked last week in “With Assad On Verge Of Historic Victory, Syrian Rebels Request A Ceasefire” how long before the US intervenes in an attempt to derail the sudden Syrian (and Russian) momentum.  We got the answer this morning, when US Defense Secretary Ash Carter said on Saturday that the US is sending 200 additional military personnel to Syria to help drive Islamic State from its de facto capital of Raqqa.

Speaking in Bahrain at the Manama Dialogue conference on Middle East security, Carter said the 200, including special forces trainers, advisers, and explosive ordnance disposal teams, would join 300 US special forces already in Syria. “These uniquely skilled operators will join the 300 US special operations forces already in Syria, to continue organizing, training, equipping, and otherwise enabling capable, motivated, local forces to take the fight to ISIL,” Carter said quoted by AP.

CONFIRMED: Russia warns U.S., ‘attack Syria and we will shoot down your aircraft’:

Russian Defence Ministry spokesman says Russian air defence forces based in Syria are ready to shoot down US aircraft and missiles attacking the Syrian military if they believe the lives of Russian personnel are threatened.

The Russian military has now made explicit the warning news of the deployment two days ago of advanced S-300VM Antey-2500 surface to air missiles to Syria had previously made implicit.

Russia not only opposes any US plan to launch covert air strikes or cruise missile strikes against the Syrian military.  Its air defence troops in Syria stand ready to intervene in the event of such strikes if they believe the lives of Russian military personnel in Syria are at risk.

The statement by Igor Konashenkov, the Russian Ministry of Defence spokesman, could not be clearer: Continue reading »

British PM: UK Will Help Gulf ‘Push Back’ Against ‘Iran Aggression’:

The British Prime Minister has accused Iran of ‘aggressive actions’ in the Middle East including stirring up trouble in Iraq, Lebanon and Syria.

Theresa May says she is “clear-eyed” about the “threat” posed by the country and has pledged to work with Gulf States to counteract its influence.

Addressing the Gulf Cooperation Council, the conservative leader said that Britain wanted to “make a more permanent and more enduring commitment to the long-term security of the Gulf” and would invest more than 3 billion pounds in defence spending in the region over the next decade.
