  • A Furtive Glance at the US’s Ongoing War Preparations Against Russia
    by ARKADY SAVITSKY, https://www.strategic-culture.org/
    While the world’s attention is riveted on Syria, the US is significantly boosting its forces in Europe. And these are not just divisions streaming in to take part in some exercises that will leave once those are over. This is a serious buildup to create a potentially offensive posture. The beefing up of the US forces is taking place amid preparations for a Russia-US summit. That’s a rather peculiar background for the event, to put it mildly!

    The 4th Combat Aviation Brigade and the 4th Infantry Division will deploy to Europe as part of its Operation Atlantic Resolve. Based in Germany, the forces will participate in multiple exercises, most of which will be held very near the Russian border in Poland, Hungary, Romania, and the Baltic States. The Army is considering deploying an entire division in a Reforger type of exercise, with troops coming over to use the pre-positioned hardware. Those forces could potentially see a surge, with a division-level deployment in late 2018 or 2019.

    The plans include the creation of a rear-area operations command to be hosted by Germany. Another command is planned that will ensure mobility in the North Atlantic shipping lanes. A “military Schengen” to allow easy movement across borders is under consideration. NATO is rotating four battalion-size, combat-ready, air-power-supported battle groups throughout Poland — which is hosting 800 American troops — and the Baltic States.

    In February, the US Army held the largest artillery exercise in Europe since the Cold War. The event was dubbed Dynamic Front 18 and involved seven rocket-launching systems, 94 artillery pieces, including eight German Panzerhaubitze 2000 armored howitzers, 14 British L118 light guns, and 18 US M777 155 mm howitzers.

    The US military command is weighing the option of keeping the USS Harry S. Truman carrier strike group in the Mediterranean, the European command’s area of responsibility, instead of deploying it to the Middle East, which is under the control of Central Command. The group left Norfolk on April 11. This move would be intended to “check Russia,” freeing other American naval assets to carry out missions in the Baltic and the Black Sea. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told the House Armed Services Committee on April 12 that he was studying the possibility of shaking up his department’s employment of carrier groups. The rotational deployments have been increased from the traditional six to ten months. A large number of US ships are concentrated in the vicinity of Syria.

SITREP: A False Flag Attack on a US Navy Ship Next?

  • SITREP: A False Flag Attack on a US Navy Ship Next?
    by Nick for the Saker blog, http://thesaker.is/
    The USS Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group left the east coast Naval Station Norfolk, VA on 11th April. The aircraft carrier is accompanied by the guided-missile cruiser USS Normandy, the guided-missile destroyers USS Burke, Bulkeley, Forest Sherman and Farragut, and the destroyers USS Jason and The Sullivans. The strike group carries 6,500 sailors and Carrier Air Wing One.

    Recent announcements about Russia’s hypersonic Kinzhal (‘Dagger’) missile system having made these vessels effectively obsolete, this means that the ships and their crews are essentially being sailed into a bloody scrapyard.

    Even without the recent upgrading of the Kinzhal system, the experience of the British fleet in the Falklands conflict illustrates the vulnerability of warships to low-flying missiles. In addition to the sinking of the HMS Sheffield and Sir Galahad, virtually every British ship was hit by at least one of Argentinian’s French-made Exocet missiles – a weapons system which was already 20 years old at the time.

    These facts are of course known to the US military planners and – one would assume and hope, for it is duty to know – by Donald Trump. And yet the US fleet is now nearing the coast of Syria, where it will met up with American and other NATO warships already in position. Together, they will make one big flock of sitting ducks.

    If the people pushing Trump manage to get him launch a new strike on Syria (and we must expect a new false flag attack) and if the massive increase in NATO firepower means that enough missiles get through to enough targets to kill Russians, then Putin really has no choice but to sink the US fleet.

    No choice because, whatever the danger of doing so, failure to respond would signal Russian defeat and retreat in Syria, which would of course lead to a rapid escalation of military pressure against Lebanon and Iran, and mean that when the Empire then rolls on to strike Russia, her most reliable allies will already have gone and her ‘soft underbelly’ will be seriously exposed.

    So Putin orders the destruction of the US fleet, and an hour later all that is left is debris and mangled corpses in some oil slicks – and some ‘great’ photos and video clips to illustrate Trump’s declaration of war on account of “Russia’s deadly sneak attack on a US humanitarian force”.

    Sounds familiar? It should do. Because we’re not just thinking here of the USS Maine, the Lusitania and the Gulf of Tonkin. The Washington habit of using sunken ships as the causus belli also of course included Pearl Harbor.

    Just in case you need a reminder, here’s just one example of the many short videos out there on the truth about the Japanese attack on 7th December 1941 which explain how Roosevelt had advance intelligence of the planned attack, but decided not to pass it on to the anchored sitting duck fleet: (top of post)

Escalating Aggression in Syria. Trump’s Punitive Strike Prelude to Broader War?

WW3 is near?

  • Escalating Aggression in Syria. Trump’s Punitive Strike Prelude to Broader War?
    by stephenlendman.org , via https://www.globalresearch.ca/
    Was US-led terror-bombing of Syrian sites overnight Friday, based on a Big Lie, prelude to greater aggression coming – Israel involved along with Washington, Britain, France, and perhaps other rogue nations?

    Mikhail Gorbachev
     fears this possibility, saying US-led bombing of Syrian targets “would lead to nothing good,” adding:


    “I think that nobody needs the attack in the form it is spoken about and with such results. It very much looks like training before you start shooting in earnest.”

    Russia’s passivity in the face of escalated US-led aggression
     risks the worst ahead, including all-out war in Syria, likely spreading regionally and beyond, maybe going global, possible nuclear war.


    Iran is a prime target. Longtime US/Israeli strategy aims to replace its sovereign independence with pro-Western puppet governance – the key regional goal of both countries. On Saturday, an incident occurred at an alleged Iranian weapons depot in Mount Azzan near Aleppo. One or more explosions were reported by Western, Israeli and other regional media.

    Syrian media said the site was bombed by an Israeli warplane. Hezbollah-connected media denied it, saying an explosion occurred inside the depot or unrelated to an airstrike. Some sources reported around 20 dead or wounded – no confirmation from official sources about the incident, occurring 24 hours after US-led aggression, targeting multiple Syrian sites.

    Nor have separate reports of aerial attacks on Syrian government targets in Deir Ezzor been confirmed. Government forces are battling US-supported terrorists in the area.

    On Saturday, Mike Pence warned of a greater “price to pay” ahead
    , saying Trump “made clear (he’s) prepared to sustain this effort…if chemicals weapons are used again against men, women and children.” No evidence proves Syrian forces ever used them. Trained by Pentagon contractors in their use, US-supported terrorists resort to this terror tactic often.


    Another CW false flag like Douma is likely coming – probably followed by greater US-led aggression than occurred overnight Friday. Russian passivity risks making a bad situation far worse. Diplomacy as a way to contest US-led aggression is a failed strategy – shooting blanks against a ruthless adversary, willing to do whatever it takes to achieve its objectives no matter how many times before it failed.

    Endless US wars in multiple theaters prove this reality.

Independent Swiss Lab Says ‘BZ Toxin’ Used In Skripal Poisoning; US/UK-Produced, Not Russian

  • Independent Swiss Lab Says ‘BZ Toxin’ Used In Skripal Poisoning; US/UK-Produced, Not Russian
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    Somebody has some explaining to do… or did the Syrian airstrikes just ‘distract’ the citizenry from the reality surrounding the Skripal poisoning.

    Remember how we were told my the politicians (not the scientists) that a deadly Novichok nerve agent – produced by Russia – was used in the attempted assassination of the Skripals? Remember the 50 questions (here and here) we had surrounding the ‘facts’ as Theresa May had laid them out? Ever wonder why, given how utterly deadly we were told this chemical was, the Skripals wondered around for a few hours after being ‘infected’ and then days later, survived with no chronic damage?

    Well those doubts may well have just been answered as according to the independent Swiss state Spiez lab, the substance used on Sergei Skripal was an agent called BZ, which was never produced in Russia, but was in service in the US, UK, and other NATO states.

    RT reports that Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said, citing the results of the examination conducted by a Swiss chemical lab that worked with the samples that London handed over to the Organisation for the Prohibition of the Chemical Weapons (OPCW), that Sergei Skripal, a former Russian double agent, and his daughter Yulia were poisoned with an incapacitating toxin known as 3-Quinuclidinyl benzilate or BZ.

    The Swiss center sent the results to the OPCW. However, the UN chemical watchdog limited itself only to confirming the formula of the substance used to poison the Skripals in its final report without mentioning anything about the other facts presented in the Swiss document, the Russian foreign minister added.

    He went on to say that Moscow would ask the OPCW about its decision to not include any other information provided by the Swiss in its report.

    On a side note, the Swiss lab is also an internationally recognized center of excellence in the field of the nuclear, biological, and chemical protection and is one of the five centers permanently authorized by the OPCW.

Lavrov: Swiss Lab Says ‘BZ toxin’ Used in Salisbury, Not Produced in Russia, Was in US & UK Service

  • Lavrov: Swiss Lab Says ‘BZ toxin’ Used in Salisbury, Not Produced in Russia, Was in US & UK Service
    by https://www.rt.com/
    The substance used on Sergei Skripal was an agent called BZ, according to Swiss state Spiez lab, the Russian foreign minister said. The toxin was never produced in Russia, but was in service in the US, UK, and other NATO states.

    Sergei Skripal, a former Russian double agent, and his daughter Yulia were poisoned with an incapacitating toxin known as 3-Quinuclidinyl benzilate or BZ, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said, citing the results of the examination conducted by a Swiss chemical lab that worked with the samples that London handed over to the Organisation for the Prohibition of the Chemical Weapons (OPCW). 

    The Swiss center sent the results to the OPCW. However, the UN chemical watchdog limited itself only to confirming the formula of the substance used to poison the Skripals in its final report without mentioning anything about the other facts presented in the Swiss document, the Russian foreign minister added. He went on to say that Moscow would ask the OPCW about its decision to not include any other information provided by the Swiss in its report.

    Lavrov said that the Swiss center that assessed the samples is actually the Spiez Laboratory. This facility is a Swiss state research center controlled by the Swiss Federal Office for Civil Protection and, ultimately, by the country’s defense minister. The lab is also an internationally recognized center of excellence in the field of the nuclear, biological, and chemical protection and is one of the five centers permanently authorized by the OPCW.

    The Russian foreign minister said that London refused to answer dozens of “very specific”questions asked by Moscow about the Salisbury case, as well as to provide any substantial evidence that could shed light on the incident. Instead, the UK accused Russia of failing to answer its own questions, he said, adding that, in fact, London did not ask any questions but wanted Moscow to admit that it was responsible for the delivery of the chemical agent to the UK.

    The Spiez Laboratory reflected on Lavrov’s words, tweeting late Saturday that only the OPCW “can comment [on] this assertion.”

With Anti-Russia Hysteria Rampant, Beijing Reminds US about Ties Between Russian & Chinese Forces

  • With Anti-Russia Hysteria Rampant, Beijing Reminds US about Ties Between Russian & Chinese Forces
    by https://www.rt.com/, 5 April 2018
    With both Russia and China bogged down in stormy relations with the US and the West, Beijing and Moscow are beating a path towards deeper bilateral cooperation. And that would include preparations on the military front.

    The annual Moscow International Security Conference made a bigger splash than usual this year as Chinese Defense Minister Wei Fenghe offered a much-needed reality check to the West.

    I am visiting Russia as the new defense minister of China to show the world the high level of development of our bilateral relations and firm determination of our armed forces to strengthen strategic cooperation,” Wei told his Russian counterpart, Sergey Shoigu. But the Chinese official was just warming up.

    The Chinese side has come to let the Americans know about the close ties between the Russian and Chinese armed forces of China and Russia, especially in this situation,” he said. “We’ve come to support you.

    There were several striking aspects about Wei’s remark that deserve commentary. First, it was no coincidence that he chose Russia as his first visit abroad as the new Chinese defense minister. Ever since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, Moscow and Beijing have enjoyed a rather predictable and pragmatic relationship largely based on economic and strategic concerns. The ‘special relationship’ between the bordering powers got etched in stone, so to speak, with the signing of the 2014 Strategic Partnership by Vladimir Putin and China’s President Xi Jinping.

“Events Today Could Lead To The Last War In The History Of Mankind”, Veteran Putin General Warns

WW3 is near?

  • “Events Today Could Lead To The Last War In The History Of Mankind”, Veteran Putin General Warns
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    The fallout from the Salisbury nerve agent attack reminds us of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, which was the most immediate catalyst – of many parallel narrative and sequences of events – that ultimately resulted in World War I. We are not alone in this reasoning, as one high-level retired Russian general warns the Salisbury poisoning could lead to the “last war in the history of mankind.”

    Ret. Lieutenant-General Evgeny Buzhinsky — who served in the Russian Armed Forces for more than forty years — said relations between Russia and Washington could become “worse” than the climax of the Cold War and “end up in a very, very bad outcome” following the nerve gas attack in the United Kingdom.


    More than 150 Russian diplomats have been expelled from 25 countries — including 23 from the United Kingdom since western nations accused Russia of being the sole actor responsible for using deadly chemical weapons on Sergei Skripal and his daughter in their Salisbury home.

The Pentagon Is Planning a Three-Front ‘Long War’ Against China and Russia

WW3 is near?

  • The Pentagon Is Planning a Three-Front ‘Long War’ Against China and Russia
    by , http://fpif.org/
    If you thought the “global war on terror” was a significant overreach for a single power, just wait.

    Think of it as the most momentous military planning on Earth right now. … thanks to current Pentagon planning, a twenty-first-century version of the Cold War (with dangerous new twists) has begun and hardly anyone has even noticed.

    In 2006, when the Department of Defense spelled out its future security role, it saw only one overriding mission: its “Long War” against international terrorism. “With its allies and partners, the United States must be prepared to wage this war in many locations simultaneously and for some years to come,” the Pentagon’s Quadrennial Defense Review explained that year.

    Twelve years later, the Pentagon has officially announced that that long war is drawing to a close — even though at least seven counterinsurgency conflicts still rage across the Greater Middle East and Africa — and a new long war has begun, a permanent campaign to contain China and Russia in Eurasia.

    “Great power competition, not terrorism, has emerged as the central challenge to U.S. security and prosperity,” claimed Pentagon Comptroller David Norquist while releasing the Pentagon’s $686 billion budget request in January. “It is increasingly apparent that China and Russia want to shape a world consistent with their authoritarian values and, in the process, replace the free and open order that has enabled global security and prosperity since World War II.”

    Of course, just how committed President Trump is to the preservation of that “free and open order” remains questionable given his determination to scuttle international treaties and ignite a global trade war. Similarly, whether China and Russia truly seek to undermine the existing world order or simply make it less American-centric is a question that deserves close attention, just not today.

    The reason is simple enough. The screaming headline you should have seen in any paper (but haven’t) is this: the U.S. military has made up its mind about the future. It has committed itself and the nation to a three-front geopolitical struggle to resist Chinese and Russian advances in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.

    Important as this strategic shift may be, you won’t hear about it from the president, a man lacking the attention span necessary for such long-range strategic thinking and one who views Russia’s Vladimir Putin and China’s Xi Jinping as “frenemies” rather than die-hard adversaries. To fully appreciate the momentous changes occurring in U.S. military planning, it’s necessary to take a deep dive into the world of Pentagon scripture: budget documents and the annual “posture statements” of regional commanders already overseeing the implementation of that just-born three-front strategy.

    The New Geopolitical Chessboard
    This renewed emphasis on China and Russia in U.S. military planning reflects the way top military officials are now reassessing the global strategic equation, a process that began long before Donald Trump entered the White House. Although after 9/11, senior commanders fully embraced the “long war against terror” approach to the world, their enthusiasm for endless counterterror operations leading essentially nowhere in remote and sometimes strategically unimportant places began to wane in recent years as they watched China and Russia modernizing their military forces and using them to intimidate neighbors.

Polish Politician: Ex-Spy Skripal Was ‘Highly Likely’ Poisoned by CIA

  • Emphasis mine:
  • Polish Politician: Ex-Spy Skripal Was ‘Highly Likely’ Poisoned by CIA
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    The poisoning of Sergei Skripal is continuing to make waves in the international community. In solidarity with the UK, some European countries together with the US have expelled Russian diplomats over the matter.

    Russia’s Foreign Ministry has responded to these moves by saying that “Britain’s allies are blindly following the principle of Euro-Atlantic unity at the expense of common sense, the rules of civilized state-to-state dialogue and the principles of international law.” All this, because, according to Theresa May, the suspicion will fall on Russia. Sputnik discussed this issue with the chairman of the party “Liberty” (Wolność) Janusz Korwin-Mikke.

    Sputnik:
     Mr. Chairman, does this comply with the international law? What is your opinion?

    Janusz Korwin-Mikke: First of all, there is no such thing as international law. Secondly, you need to have evidence to blame somebody. And I absolutely agree with Vladimir Putin who said either you provide evidence or apologize. This formulation of the question is very clear. Allegations of the use of chemical weapons can only be considered as a comedy play.

    This is ridiculous. If I offer you a shot of meth and you get poisoned, would it also be considered the usage of chemical weapons? Definitely. There is such a concept in investigative practice as “is fecit, cui prodest” (it’s done by someone who benefits from it – editor’s note).

    In my opinion it was done by the CIA. It was the CIA who presented false data on Iraq’s weapons and things like that. It was the CIA who was interested in turning American and global public opinion against Russia.

    There are certain powerful and influential circles in America which are striving for war with Russia and China and they are doing their best to get this war. This was highly likely done by the CIA. I would bet one to five as Russia has no interest in that at all. Using the similarity to the Litvinenko case, the CIA acted the same way in order to blame Russia. I don’t believe that Russia is responsible for the poisoning of Sergei Skripal. Someone from Russia rightly said that Russia definitely wouldn’t do that in the lead-up to Mundial.

    Sputnik:
     It is absurd to accuse Russia of this attack because everything has turned against it.

    Janusz Korwin-Mikke: Yes, certainly. My colleague Michalkiewicz said that the Russians are good chess players and they surely wouldn’t do anything that foolish. I don’t believe in that at all.
