Updated! Pentagon Considers Launching Limited Military Action Against Syria?

ASHARQ AL-AWSAT

Speaking of possibilities for false flags or covert ops?

"Washington- The Pentagon is considering carrying out limited attacks in Syria that don’t drag U.S. President Barack Obama to an embarrassing situation.

 Officials in the Pentagon and the White House told Asharq al-Awsat newspaper that these airstrikes will not be disclosed and the U.S. won’t claim them publicly."
 Usually I don't bother with these types of claims but this report is worthy of exception.
Why, you ask?   This is a very plausible scenario given the present day circumstances. Aleppo is pivotal. The US and terrorist company will do all it takes to impede or prevent it's return to Syria.

Therefore, the US attacks, to advance the terrorist cause in Aleppo. There will be no claims of fog of war , our bad and oh we're so sorry, like the last hit on SAA September 17/2016- Killing more then 80. And injuring many more US Airstrikes Hit Syrian Arab Army to Support ISIS - Intentionally! 62 dead, 100's injured.

  If the US were to take this type of action they will not acknowledge these strikes, that seems certain. As the UN Security Council vote is taking place might be an opportune time for the US to strike?  3:00 pm est time would be 10:00 pm Aleppo time.

The way Israel conducts itself comes to mind right about now.....

Update: Russia will introduce it's own resolution on Syria- In a clear tit for tat move designed to put the US on the spot.
 
The UN Security Council will vote Saturday on rival Syria resolutions sponsored by France and Russia and both are virtually certain to be vetoed, leaving the war-ravaged country and the besieged city of Aleppo engulfed in conflict and key powers deeply divided.
Russia's last minute introduction of a rival resolution on Friday afternoon took Western supporters of the French draft by surprise.
Several diplomats privately called it a brilliant move by Moscow because it will force Western powers to veto as well.
Taking Russia off the hot seat from a PR perspective.

Recall from yesterday's post (second link below) Vitaly Churkin?/ Russian envoy: Real goal of UNSC resolution on Aleppo is to provoke Russia to veto it

  1. must be UN speak ;p

    He [ Lavrov ]also said that the removal of militants from towns in cities in Syria has nothing to do with “coercive displacement” as some UN officials like Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator Stephen O’Brien

    1. Lavrov dressed down the former Jordanian ambassador days ago for thinking beyond his mandate.

      Meanwhile Portugal prevails in the UN race in double referendum, one on Europe one on Russia. Hungary loses. South stream gains?

  2. UN talk for pretending the terrorists are civilians and them leaving is coercive displacement--

  5. Hi Penny:

    I'm thinking what we're seeing here is the end of 4th generation warfare...warfare by proxy. It just doesn't work. For two reasons(which should have been obvious from the outset)

    1. Once the street to street battle starts the empire can't support the proxies from the air...like the Russians can support the Syrian soldiers. The Empire is still caught up in the big lie it used to get it's foot in the door In the first place...."It's not us, it's those damned jihaddists!"

    Secondly, the empire has NO support amongst the civilian population. The proxy terror campaign has alienated all the population. So it's just like Viet Nam...why Americans lost there...they never had the support of the people in any way, shape or form. So, hopefully, this will be the end of the 4th generation warfare experiment.

    1. Hey GC!
      hope you enjoyed your break :)

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fourth-generation_warfare
      went to read it and yah, it seems apt

      hubby and I were talking about the street to street battle aspect in Aleppo last night.

      Because Russia can coordinate with SAA and others-
      If SAA is overwhelmed on the ground they call for targeted airstrikes

      NATO's terrorists don't have this luxury without the US and company blatantly hitting Syria far beyond it's UN mandate to 'get ISIS'- This will damage the reputation of the US . That is reduce them to exactly that which they are- global tyrant- despite what people may think- perception plays a huge roll in the ability of the US and co (NATO) to steamroll the globe.

      The civilian population of Syria, never supported this destabilization.. I would suspect some of the kurdish population did, particularly those affiliated with PKK- some criminal elements also did support all the opportunities that were presented- but the vast majority wanted no part of it

      I am not optimistic that this has ended- This was a way bigger project then Syria- the remake of the entire ME stretching into Asia- with greedy Israel drooling from the sidelines...

      What I wonder is just how desperate and evil are the plotters?

  6. Mike Whitney? Mike limited hangout/disinfo Whitney

    Where has he been since 2011?

    Pentagon Begins Low-Intensity, Stealth War in Syria

    http://www.counterpunch.org/2016/10/07/pentagon-begins-low-intensity-stealth-war-in-syria/

    that's some serious spin in that article

    "The Pentagon is basically prosecuting their own little war in Syria and then chatting up the policy with Obama when they damn-well feel like it"

    Poor Obama :(

    I just can't take articles or authors such as that serious
    That meme fits right in with Whitney's book "Hopeless Barack Obama and the Politics of Illusion"
    I guess he'd rather sell books then talk reality

  7. The UN Security Council is the usual..
    Churkin more or less said this whole process is futile
    we each side vetoing the others resolution down
    the US and NATO cohorts could have stopped this long ago..
    In fact the US and co never had to begin this
    I just watched the UK ambassador to the UN- disgusting

  8. And the drivel continues... the message is consistent
    It's all Russia's fault- That's it!
    Of course reality is that

    New Zealand says 'they will discuss with other members what actions will be taken in in the coming days'

    ReplyDelete
  9. Of course reality is that it is not "Russia's fault"

    Now will the UN, sans Russia, try to pull off the humanitarian ruse that I mentioned earlier this week?
