Israeli Russian Threat Hoax Pushes World to Brink of War

Putin goes after Russians fighting inside ISIL
Putin goes after Russians fighting inside ISIL

[ Editor’s Note:  We all knew Russian air support against ISIL was coming after the UN show this week. Putin dotted his “I’s” and crossed his “Ts”.

He had an invitation from the legitimate Syrian government whose ambassador there is a real live person and not a stuffed dummy. He also said Russia’s involvement would be limited to airstrikes and no ground troops… plain English.

That of course does not include the use of advisers and tech support people like the 3000 that the US has in Iraq… by invitation, also. And it does not include Special Operations troops who are always on the ground, in this case often in Jihadi disguise. The US, Brits and French have had them inside Syria for several years… and of course the Israelis. No one has more deployed than the US… 70 countries admitted to this year.

But Putin did play the Bush (43) card today which VT has been predicting: “The only correct way to fight international terrorism… is to act preemptively, to battle and destroy fighters and terrorists on the territories they have already seized, not to wait for them to come to us.”

He went on to use his own version another classic line of “better to fight them over there than back here at home,” saying that terrorists should be crushed where they are on the battlefield and not allowed to return to their home countries with battle experience and hardened ideology.

Gosh, what a nasty thing to say about all those under privileged terrorists who probably just had a rough upbringing that a multi-trillion dollar foreign aid program could have avoided!

But the big black star goes to corporate media who has not said a word about all the totally fabricated stories being fed into the public arena, primarily from Israeli-controlled well-oiled sources, some of it beyond the ridiculous, as Gordon points out below.

Gordon and I are of an age when the major competing media platforms used to roast one another when catching someone printing or airing a bogus story. Reporters often made their bones this way with a big catch.

Now, because they all do it, there is a stand down on that area of investigative journalism. Everyone studying to go into the field, take note. This is what is waiting for you, a slot to participate in the charade, where those with some standards are driven out early, only leaving the scum to rise to the top.

I will keep using this line, “Never have so many owed so little to so few” as the public owes corporate media, nothing but a rotten corpse of what it once was, warts and all. Completely invented sources are used all the time, including low cost sloppy operatives, as shown with the reference to the Free Syrian Army positions in Syria mentioned below, when they disbanded and retreated into Turkey last February.

You will not see any of these bogus stories today attacked by corporate media competitors, because they all do it and want to keep their readers dumb and happy, many of whom are focus groups looking for their daily ideological fix and could care less if the material is true or not. In that regard, our media is a representation of ourselves, too many of us I am afraidJim W. Dean ]


Moscow says hello to ISIL with a new type of weapon we have not seen before, in the first strike. It looks like large bombs and clusters dropped together and impact at the same time. Those that follow are cluster bombs.

Russia has begun air operations over Syria today based on an request from President Assad and in consultation with the Secretary General of the United Nations, in full accordance with international law. However, a massive flood of disinformation of every kind, shape and color is flowing across not only the internet but television and remaining print media as well.

It all tracks down to Israel. America’s very controlled press is carrying one story but in many variations.  According to Fox News, a Russian three star general stormed into the US embassy in Baghdad, knocking people down, screaming and raising his fist in the air:

“We will shoot down any American planes inside Syria, America must remove them now or else.”

More stories tell of threats by Putin and demands that America remove its planes. Other stories tell of a statement by President Obama that America will continue bombing Syria and that if Russia interferes, America will take action.

Here is CNN’s own version of the hoax, an imaginary US official, a ploy CNN uses over and over when they need to push a hoax on the public:

But a senior U.S. administration official told CNN’s Elise Labott the Russian airstrike near the city of Homs “has no strategic purpose” in terms of combating ISIS, which “shows they are not there to go after ISIL.” ISIL is another acronym for ISIS. The official said the U.S. had no intention of preventing the strikes but that Russian planes didn’t seem to be flying in areas where the U.S. was operating. “They are not stupid,” the official said.

Let’s be honest here.  There was no official, there is no after action report done this quickly, it simply isn’t possible.  This means Elise Labott is an intelligence asset of Israel’s, no surprise here.  This is just another lightweight funneled into usefulness in order to, when called upon, burn herself, her news bureau and push a hoax that in a more just world would destroy the career of any real journalist.  Please excuse my use of the term “real journalist.”

There is just one problem with this:

We have been able to confirm none of it other than to a trail leading to Tel Aviv. Sticking my neck out on this a bit, it seems that this is a Mossad hoax meant to push the US and Russia to war since Putin threatened Israel during his UN “after speech” press conference.

There President Putin said that he was making good advances in Russia’s relationship with Israel except for one minor problem, Israel’s bombing campaign against Syria.

Taken in the understated tone and context in which Putin made this statement, any nation that would ignore something like this would be insane.

We may well be seeing Israel’s response, an attempt to draw the United States to their side, and by this we means Israel’s air support for the 800 Israeli troops now fighting alongside ISIS inside Syria.

The Israeli ground forces deployed across Syria constitute one of the worst kept military secrets in the world.

Further, there are also unattributed statements also traced to the Mossad that Russia is only attacking Free Syrian Army positions and not ISIS.

For those who are unaware, the Free Syria Army disbanded in February 2015. Fox News even claimed Russian ships, mind you not aircraft carriers, we mounting air assaults on Syria. You just can’t make this stuff up.

This is the headline from the UK Telegraph, written just after their editorial board got a visit from Israeli intelligence:

Putin defies West as Russia bombs ‘Syrian rebel targets instead of Isil’

Just to reiterate some facts.

  • Russia was asked by Syria to give military support against the terrorist groups that no sane person can avoid admitting are NATO formed and backed.
  • Russia has asked the UNSC for a resolution against ISIS, something the US has been stalling on for some reason.
  • Time we admitted that the Free Syrian Army is a pack of thugs and malcontents on the CIA payroll, hired to stage a phony color revolution in Syria the same way the neo-Nazi thugs paid by the CIA have pushed Ukraine to a civil war.

Here, at least, we have informants that quickly put Israel’s face on some very nasty work.

This is the map used by the Telegraph.  Note that the imaginary Free Syrian Army, that nobody can find, is shown to be in control of territory entirely under the very real control of the al Qaeda group known as al Nusra.


The crazy map that nobody understands isn’t the half of it. We also caught DEBKA, the Israeli black propaganda group tied to Stratfor and InfoWars, doing something crazier still.

They claim the Saudi Defense Minister announced today that if al Qaeda didn’t successfully defeat Assad, they were going to send in troops.  Of course, that is providing Yemen leaves some Saudi troops alive.

We know this, Russia is deploying advanced air defenses over Syria quickly including the Golan region where Israel has staged air assaults on behalf of ISIS, the assaults President Putin mentioned as his only issue with Israel.

Today, Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yalon announced that Israel would continue attacking Syria, an announcement we believe is predicated on the success of the Mossad’s black propaganda “charm offensive” that is now flooding the mainstream media, or at least the lowest rungs.
