Wrap Up: Battle Aleppo. Kosovo/Serbia. US & Russia to meet and way more...

Summarizing: The G-8 meeting. No concessions to the NATO tyranny. Russia held the line they have for so long now.G- 8 Declaration WILL NOT mention the fate of Syrian leader Assad & Updates!

The NATO world army, cared not, because they expect to up the ante: Obama, Syria and the Aspin doctrine: Plans for a "limited" strike on Syria? And Turkey, US cooperate on arms (aid ) to terrorists in Syria (rebels) Doha lurks

Certainly, Russia is aware of that. Russia to fulfill Syria missile systems contract 

 "We respect all our contracts and are honoring all our contractual obligations," Lavrov said "As yet, the contracts are not finished, they have not been delivered in full," he added.
What aspect/s of the contract are not yet finished? What has been delivered already?
What is yet, undelivered? 

The Aspin Doctrine redux:  Kosovo offers United States a roadmap for Syria

IT’S BEEN 14 years since the United States, defying Russian obstruction in the U.N. Security Council, launched an air campaign....
Critics warned at the time that U.S. intervention would sow chaos or empower radicals
Which it did. It created a terror state in Kosovo. It empowered radicals. But, the KLA were western radicals. Just like AQ and al Nusra.

The incipient settlement is an example of how Western intervention can stop a bloody and seemingly in­trac­table ethnic war — but also of how much effort is required. Since the fighting ended in 1999, NATO has kept a peacekeeping force in Kosovo, including U.S. troops; 760 American personnel are still there. The deal between Mr. Thaci and Mr. Dacic was brokered through the tireless diplomacy of European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton, who oversaw 10 taxing rounds of negotiations.
If anything was really stopped there would be no NATO peacekeeper force on the ground. That is self evident, despite the spin by WP.

The United States should support that ambition and also press countries that have not yet recognized Kosovo, including several of its neighbors in southeastern Europe, to do so. But the Obama administration would also do well to take a lesson from this history. Limited U.S. military interventions, accompanied by a sustained follow-up and vigorous diplomacy, can save lives and stabilize troubled regions — even when Russia and the U.N. Security Council don’t approve.

Next up : U.S., Russia to hold Syria talks in Geneva next week - U.N.   

Senior U.S. and Russian officials will meet the international mediator on Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, in Geneva on Tuesday to discuss a peace conference, a U.N. spokeswoman said on Friday.

An international peace conference aimed at ending the conflict in Syria, first muted in June or July, is unlikely to take place before August after G8 leaders clashed with Russia over the nature of a transitional government.

Additionally: Syrian chemical weapons claim, criticism about lack of transparency


The United States, Britain and France have supplied the United Nations with a trove of evidence, including multiple blood, tissue and soil samples, that U.S. officials say proves that Syrian troops used the nerve agent sarin on the battlefield. But the nature of the physical evidence — as well as the secrecy over how it was collected and analyzed — has opened the administration to criticism by independent experts, who say there is no reliable way to assess its authenticity.

NATO would never let such a thing as authenticity and truth get in the way of wholesale slaughter

Two views of the battle in Northern Syria.
The importance is understood. The interpretations differ.

Assad Government/"Regime" Erodes Hopes for Rebel Enclave in Syria's North

 A few miles from the border with Turkey, the Syrian army regularly lobs artillery on towns and villages where rebels and their Western backers had once envisioned an enclave to lay the groundwork for a post-Assad Syria.

The regime's moderate gains here, in territory Syrian rebels had dominated for over a year, have taken on new significance as the U.S. prepares to help arm rebel forces. Opposition supporters at Syria's northwestern border say an international defense of this territory would have given rebels a home base to govern and train—just as the Libyan opposition was able to do in Benghazi while rebels battled the Gadhafi regime.

Idlib was largely cleared of government forces in early 2012, less than a year after the start of the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad. The countryside here, abundant with olive groves, hosted some of the first and largest training grounds for rebel factions. Rebels held parts of the provincial capital, Idlib city, in February 2012, in what became a model for staging attacks on urban centers from the suburban countryside.

But government forces now control Idlib city, and the province has steadily slipped this year from secure rebel control. While the regime has appeared focused on consolidating its control around Damascus and the Western coast, that hasn't made it any safer here, local rebels and activists said.

View to a kill # 2:  Obstacles To A Syrian Regime Victory In Aleppo
And here

Logistical and Other Challenges

For all the regime’s announcements of an imminent victory in Aleppo, it is important to remember the very significant obstacles. Many of these are in fact the same that prevented the regime from ousting the rebels from the city in summer 2012.

First, the main concentration of regime forces is a considerable distance from Aleppo and is largely isolated due to rebel efforts to sever its supply lines. The closest significant concentration of regime forces is in Idlib city, but those troops are mostly cut off from the south. Therefore, any serious advance on Aleppo would have to come from the main concentration of loyalist forces in the core. The closest realistic staging point for these forces to advance northward would be from Hama governorate.
There are, in effect, two ways that the regime can reach Aleppo in force. The first involves a thrust northward along the M5 highway from Hama. The M5 highway would offer the regime the best supply infrastructure leading to the city, greatly alleviating the logistical burden necessary to support a considerable mechanized advance on Aleppo. However, there are a large number of significant rebel positions along this route. The advancing force would have to pass through northern Hama governorate; Maarat al-Nuaman and Saraqeb, Idlib governorate; and Khan Tuman and Khan Asal, Aleppo governorate. All of these positions would have to be seized or reduced before the regime could advance without fearing for its supply route.

To maintain the integrity of the M5 route, the loyalist forces would also need to displace the rebels from the immediate area of the highway and leave enough security forces along the route to maintain its ability to function. This would be no easy feat. In fact, in some areas along the M5 highway — such as Morek, which the rebels seized June 13 — the rebels are actually advancing.

The regime’s second option to reach Aleppo is to skirt the main M5 highway and instead take secondary roads from Salamiyeh to Khanasser, avoiding or defeating the new rebel offensive in the eastern Hama plain. From there, the force would move north to link with the outer reach of the regime position in Tall Sughayb and the Safira defense factory in Aleppo governorate. Even though this route avoids the bulk of rebel forces along the M5 highway, it is not clear that the secondary roads have the capacity to support a large regime offensive. In any case, the rebels have already recognized the potential for this route and have placed some units in a blocking position, ensuring that an advance would not be unopposed.
 Complicating the regime’s future battle plans even further is the recent U.S. decision to increase the arming of the rebels. There will likely be a combination of more direct aid from the United States and looser restrictions on the quantity and quality of weapons that other states are already providing. The United States is moving toward a more prominent role in arming the rebels, but at least initially its involvement will be heavily tempered by its desire to avoid putting weapons, particularly man-portable air-defense systems, in the hands of extremist groups.

Regime forces are making progress, but they need a victory in Aleppo before they can legitimately claim to be close to undermining the rebellion. In order for the loyalists to seriously threaten the rebel position in Aleppo, they need to be able to reach the area with a force of considerable size and to keep that force supplied.

Finally: Pipelines and energy resources- Russia and China agree $270bn oil deal

 Rosneft has signed a deal to supply China with $270bn worth of oil over the next 25 years, as Russia looks to boost ties with the world’s largest energy consumer.

The contract is set to be followed by an agreement by Novatek, Russia’s largest independent gas producer, with China’s Sinopec to take a stake in its $20bn liquefied natural gas project on Russia’s remote Yamal peninsula.

The two deals mark at least a partial pivot towards Asia as Russia seeks to exploit China’s ever-growing appetite for energy, amid stagnant demand from Europe and attempts by European countries to reduce reliance on Russia.
Trade without killing? Who would have thought that possible?


  1. Critical announcement of a new Kurd pipeline once again setting stage for the break...

    Iraqi Kurds announce new oil pipeline to Turkish border - increasing the autonomous region’s control over its resources in a dispute with Baghdad, as reported by Reuters. Such a move, which was announced by Hawrami, will provoke Baghdad, energy sources said. Hawrami noted that the KRG would complete the pipeline by the end of September with an initial capacity of 300,000 barrels per day (bpd).

      I think I have something bookmarked, from a long time ago.. never used it and must look
      to see if it is still hanging around

  2. A fascinating article with major implications...

    Quantum communications system was used at Party Congress in Beijing; Beijing was so worried about cyberspies during last autumn's party congress that it turned to a secret, state-of-the-art telecommunications network to handle sensitive information. Use of the next-generation quantum encryption technology at the once-in-a-decade leadership transition was revealed in a passing remark reported last week in People's Daily. And Beijing plans to launch the world's first quantum communications satellite in 2016, a top mainland researcher told the South China Morning Post

    IS this what the NSA story is about...

    1. Hey Anony

      I have some stuff bookmarked on the NSA spying, and Yes, I saw that China had been struck, though there was not much msm coverage of that aspect of the spying.

      What the hell does this entail?
      I am going to have to read that one, most definitely
      I have been wondering about the big push to reduce nukes???
      Suggestive that something else, some other technology is available
      But what?

  3. Jim Fetzer and Carol Valentine are saying 22nd June may be the False Flag date everyone has feared. See the links below:

    I hope they are proved wrong though I am glad they're brave enough to speak out.

  5. Just an fyi..
    many have mentioned the curious moon phase and the start of wars connection on previous occasion
    I understand this may be connected to the light in the night sky

    The new moon is supposed to be a darker sky, so that could have something to do with the reason for airstrikes taking place around that time

    If that is true and their is a connection to that it is worth noting that July 8th is a new moon
    July 9th Ramadan begins
    I understand that Islam is connected to the moon and stars So....... it has to be mentioned

    fyi Judaism to the moon(lunar) especially the new moon!!

    and the moon figures large in Israel's major wars
    Christianity = the Sun

    All just something else to consider

  6. a jihadi is someone who thinks he is fighting in his gods name (eg the cannibal)
    so an exjihadi is asked what he thinks of jihad on syria...and says bmore truths thany ou will find in any MSM
    fellow raises obvious question why is there no jihad against israel? also one of the few to note the jihadis are being manipulated by the US / quotes Chomsky: 'Democacy is an illusion we use to deceive people' once the goal of removing Assad is achieved, USrael will; bring in its puppets and those who fought the war will be called terrorists..there use now being at an end

  7. It is on the 23 and 24 June. This is predicted by the Mayans. Something will happen, natural, wars, but something will take place.

      Senator Feinstein on Edward Snowden: "The chase is on"

      Speculation on Snowden's safety:

      'Mr Snowden would be best advised to try to stay in Russia and to make a base there' - Smith

      Smith talks about the worldwide American spy networks and their reach, and thinks Snowden might be safer if he stayed in Russia. But maybe Russia told Snowden they couldn't guarantee his safety due to zionist or western infiltration? I'm sure Snowden has been given the info needed to make his decision.

      Also Smith fails to mention that the American spy data also goes to Tel Aviv, as does that from London and Bonn (Germany and Britain both have spy exposure scandals recently similar to the American one) and many other countries under the thumb of Israel's American proxy. Remember this from Putin's recent trip to London:

      Russian Advanced Weapons for Syria: Unrevealed Secrets of Vladimir Putin’s Recent Visit to London

      "A British intelligence report stated that Putin went to London bringing his own Russian cooked food and did not consume anything from Britain including water as he even brought his own water with him reportedly because he had concerns of being poisoned."

      No doubt very valid concerns. These sods poisoned Chavez, and given what they've been caught doing in Syria, I think it is more than clear they are capable of any cowardly act.

    Along with the blog article referenced:

    That the USA is running Al Qaida and its subsidiaries is not new information to us, but this association being front paged at VoR is another good sign the world's hegemon (well, it's main enforcer) has competition again. This is the kind of news that needs to be seen by a wider audience in the west, and every exposure does help, as these add up.
