Fact Checking The Democratic Debate on The Syria/Turkey Question

I’m not sure why it has me so fired up the last couple of days, but when I saw Joe Biden’s face on the television tonight being asked a question about President Erdogan’s new initiative in Syria and Donald Trumps decision to withdraw troops from the country I flicked off the TV and said “Fuck You. Fuck You. You know how many people died because of you?” Then I just kind of walked away for a second to calm down. When I walked back I proceeded to watch the rest of the debate surrounding Syria and I just shook my head the whole time.

I just couldn’t believe how perverted the Democrats logic was on this issue, which was easy to press forward given that there was no opposition to any of their points of view – so they all just piled on. So, for the purposes of this “article” I just want to fact check some of the so called information the international public was subjected to tonight.

What I think angered me most was the fact the nearly all the Democrats, with the exception of Tulsi Gabbard, essentially vowed to create a new permanent and more official War in Syria if they ever became President in 2020. But it’s almost as if they have no understanding why the USA “lost” the War in Syria in the first place? It was because Russia literally went all in to back/save Bashir al-Assad, for a number of reasons I am not going to talk about today. Meanwhile, the USA merely has 1,000 troops forced to operate under the rules of engagement, which esentially doesn’t allow them to fire a shot without permission. Russia on the other hand will blow anything and anyone up anytime, and they don’t give a f*ck about it either. Point being, for the USA to ever logistically “win” in Syria it would have had to dramatically stepped up military presence and directly taken on Russian forces already stationed on the ground there – id est the USA would literally have to go to War with Russia to win in Syria. Is that what the Democrats want? All out War with Russia? To bad there wasn’t anyone around to challenge their strong positions on this subject.

But that brings me to my second point. Why did Russia beat us to the punch in Syria? This was because of Joe Biden and Barack Obama’s decision to not invest more heavily in the country than we did, instead choosing to ship weapons and munitions to forces already on the ground in Syria, rather than have US forces do it directly for themselves. Such as was the case with arming the Kurds, whom were gifted more arms and munitions than you can shake a big stick at, which is now why Turkey has to target them militarily today, because the US armed them so heavily they became their own rogue militant threat in the region – which happens to border Turkey. Keeping up yet?

Point being, the decision to not invest in Syria more heavily, sooner, was Obama/Biden’s decision or indecision. Moreover, the decision to overthrow the the Assad regime in the first place was also made by Obama/Biden, and the decision to arm the Kurds so heavily was also made by Obama/Biden’s – leading to the crisis everyone is debating today. The Dems all said that Donals Trump has all the blood on his hands for what he did, but they need not look any further than the man man on stage with them, Joe Biden, whom has more blood on his hands than Doanld Trump could ever soak in – specifically in regards to talk to Syria. I guess if Biden is looking for the guilty, he need not look any further than a mirror.

Also, lets be real. There is a reason why Turkey “flipped” on the United States and why commentators now have to ask the question at the 2019 debate “does Turkey still belong in NATO?” The question is obviously yes, why do you think Donald Trump is doing what he is doing? To save NATO. Just think about it, if the US engages in Syria more heavily, specifically in regards to backing up the Kurds coming under assault, the US would literally be engaging with and against Turkey – a NATO member. So, it begs the question, if two NATO allies start bombing one another, what does that mean for Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty and which side would all the other NATO countries have to come in defense with? You see, stopping Erdogan in Syria now would mean two NATO countries going to War with one another, which would essentially spell the end of NATO entirely. By exiting Syria, Trump is avoiding a NATO breakup. In this sense, Trump is trying to save the NATO alliance for much bigger issues which may arise throughout the future – preserving its power structure. Does the Democrats want to break up NATO just to save the Middle Eastern Kurds? Is that really a deal they are willing to cut, also going to War with Turkey in the process? I think not, but just let them talk all loud and proud in front of a microphone for a night.

** EDITORS NOTE: Turkey flipped on the USA in 2016 to side with Russia because Russia showed Turkey some leaked cables in the weeks leading up the attempted coup of President Erdogan in July 2016, which was easily foiled by the President. As Turkey has now since also proven, not only did they see hacked materials from the US by their Russians counterparts meant to sway their opinions, but Turkey also produced evidence of their own that the CIA and Obama/Biden were behind the attempted coup – largely for many of the same fallacious notions you are hearing about the Syrian conflict in the Democrats debate today. Essentially, Obama/Biden and Israel wanted Erdogan out to get rid of Assad and create a new Kurdish state. As they say, the so called “Best laid plans of mice and men” – right? Or should it be, “how Biden/Obama f*cked up the Middle East and US relations for a decade?” There is a reason Turkey turned on the USA and Trump has nothing to do with it – it was all Obama/Biden **

I guess that’s all I really have to say here, I’m just being real about the situation. I have no ‘skin in the game,’ what do I have to gain from typing this out for you? I don’t support Trump and I am not a Democrat, but you better damn sure bet even I would give Donald Trump a high five for pulling out of Syria. Better to end it now and not to make it our next Afghanistan, or Iraq, or Vietnam, or Korea – etc.

The Real Reason Behind Turkeys New Syrian Initiative & Donald Trumps Withdrawal

Granted this article may come a few days too late, the main stream medias coverage of it comes a few years to late, and I say this because I once addressed this very situation, in detail, in the very first website I created in 2016. Entitled “How They United States Has Laid The Groundwork for The Middle Easts Next War” and drafted in July of 2017, the video you will find below describes everything you need to know about the current situation between the US, Turkey, Syria and NATO, as well as why Donald Trumps decision to unilaterally withdraw all troops from Syria comes as a direct response to potential NATO conflicts of interest in the near future. I could summarize it some more to get my word count up here, or you could just listen to it for yourself – enjoy!

However, it must also be noted that the withdrawal of all troops from Syria this week marks yet another “L” on the scoreboard for the US military. It’s not just our defeat in Vietnam and Korea that’s on the scoreboard, we lost the War in Iraq under Obama, leading the formation of ISIS and the presence of troops there for a second time, we are currently losing the War in Afghanistan, and while I may 100% agree with our Presidents decision to do so, the withdrawal of all troops from Syria is essentially yet another giant loss for the United States military. Even if we wage more Wars everywhere on Earth than any other country in the world, surely all of these modern day losses don’t make the US look like the military powerhouse we tend to fancy ourselves to be. You would think that might stifle any War efforts in the future, but for some reason I doubt this.

Op-Ed: Predictions for The European Unions Upcoming Round of National Elections

For those of you whom might not be aware, between May 23rd and 26th 2019 the European Parliament is set to hold their next round of national elections, with seats in all 28 members states up for grabs. Given the nature of my expertise and work, the other day I was asked by a small private group of intelligence contractors based out of France what my opinions were about these elections, who I thought might be a target and what information I might expect to see coming from them over the next few weeks/months leading up to the elections? While I didn’t necessarily think much about it at the time, upon reflection, I suppose if international intelligence contractors were interested in this information then it might make for an interesting article concept.

As such, I write this article here today. What I tried to explain to them was a number of concepts, such as:

Russia Owns EVERYTHING. It is not for no reason that Russia is at the center of all these hack/leaks, and it is not for no reason that on through to today, Russia continues to hack just about anyone and everyone they desire. What’s critically important to understand is that Russia is using never before seen technology/computers. Meaning that Russia has developed hardward, software and operating systems that no one else in the world can match or have access too. Moreover, these OS’s do not operate on/by or follow the same traditional computing “rules” as everyone else – particularly MacOS, Windows or Linux. Rather, Russia uses its own design whose computers are not limited to, governed or restricted by the same rules as everyone else.

As you can see from the links above, this initiative dates back to 2015 when Kremilin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov announced that Vladimir Putin would soon be banning Microsoft devices from Government devices in Russia, instead switching them over to new domestically sourced programs unique to Russia. Ever since, Russia has just about owned every Government or Government agency they desire. Again, because their hackers are not following the same computing rules as the rest of the world.

Top Priorities/Threats

Romania. In terms of theoretical targets for future leaks, espionage, hacking campaigns and the like over the months to follow, I maintain that Romania it a top tier target. I say this because their economy is fragile and the countries leaders are essentially desperate. For years on end Romania has been begging NATO to stockpile them with weapons and munitions as to deter Russia from ever thinking about trying to take over the country directly- again, for a second time. In fact, NATO weapon transfers to Romania dating back to 2015 are at the literal heart of all the current missile related conflicts between our two countries in 2019 – a year which has already seen both the US and Russia remove their signatures from various Cold War enacted agreements/treaties.

For these very reasons, I maintain that Romania is perhaps the single highest priority target/threat, or most vulnerable country in the European Union at the present moment in time.

Albania. While Albania is not in the EU, they will be holding elections in June of 2019 and the country is a bit of a powder keg – so to speak. I say this because it was only recently exposed, in August 2016, that the countries current Prime Minister, Edi Rama, was essentially elected via a coup thrown by international Globalists including George Soros and Hillary Clinton. For example, you may recall a 2011 leaked email from Hillary Clinton posted by Wikileaks in 2016, in which is was exposed how George Soros, a private citizen, quite literally ordered/instructed Clinton, the US State Department and the European Uninon to throw the weight of their platforms behind Edi Rama in the Albanian National dispute. Not only this, but the very person whom went on to negotiate/mediate the government transition, Miroslav Lajcak, was also personally named in the email, by Soros, as the person who Clinton and the EU should appoint to do exactly this.

At the time, the leak served the perfect ‘smoking gun,’ revealing how billionaire lobbyists, such as Soros and his foundation, collude with international politicians, such as Hillary Clinton, to achieve the political results they desire. In other words, on through to today, the leak remains so significant because it exposes the so-called “Shadow Government” that many are aware of, but seldom ever get a chance to see. Consequentially, this is also why Albania now finds itself a top level target, especially given the rise of international Nationalists appointed around them in the years since Rama was first elected. Moreover, the country is also vulnerable to liberal socialists alike, given the fact that Albania has long since asked for inclusion in the European Union – but continues to be denied.

2016 Clinton-Soros Leaked Email on Albania/Edi Rama: https://wikileaks.org/clinton-emails/emailid/28972

Poland. It’s perhaps the worst kept secret in the world that Poland is home to the single largest remaining faction of the Nazi Party as it existed during World War II. The evidence of this can be seen by wave after wave after wave of White Nationalists protests in Poland over the course of the last several years. For example, see samples of protests from 2015, 2017, 2018 and on through to today…….

Needless to say, the people of Poland are quite pissed off and have been pissed off for a very long time. Moreover, especially given all of the countries poverty levels, coupled with ethnic, racists and religious tensions inside the country, it wouldn’t exactly take too much effort to tip the country and its people over the edge, so to speak, and send them all into an uproar. For this very reason, Poland is considered another top level target in the future – especially with elections just on the horizon.

Macedonia. Macedonia is the country which taught me that if you are ever coming under heavy fire from tear gas, you should smear toothpaste under your eyes like eye-black to mitigate the effects. This is because Macedonia has been home to ongoing border disputes with various EU nations dating back to 2015. This is because the country is positioned at a unique point in the world, geo-strategically making it a gateway into Europe – especially from the Mediterranean, were many refugees from North Africa and the Middle East continue to poor into Europe. Again, see evidence of border clashed from 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018.

As it should be obvious to see, these conflicts have been raging for quite some time now, and despite “peace agreements” in 2018 many people are still upset and the conflict at Macedonia’s borders are still ongoing. While Macedonia is not an EU country, they do directly border several EU countries whom all have less than favorable opinions of the country and their policies – geo-political disputes rip for the picking, so to speak, which can be exploited by internetional threat actors.

France, Spain and Greece also remain vulnerable targets, espcially considering that all of these EU countries already have or are actively on the brink of economic collapse. However, these targets are too obvious, which is why I didn’t include a break down of their vulnerabilites here today.

Transcript of Vladimir Putin’s Annual Address To Federal Security Service (FSB) In Russia Earlier This Week

Earlier this week, March 6th 2019, Vladimir Putin addressed the Federal Security Service (FSB) for a recap of the 2018 year in review. While the President touched on many issues throughout the course of his speech, including the US’s withdrawal from internationally negotiated missile Treaties and the latest statistics regarding Russia’s efforts in the international War against terrorism, for the purposes of this article I would like to talk about Putin’s statements regarding international espionage and cyber hacking campaigns against his country. From the perspective of an American, I think it provides a unique insight into many of the issues currently circulating around global headlines – especially considering the fact that Putin’s words are censored here in the USA.

Rather than write hundreds and hundreds of words about what Putin said, wouldn’t you rather just read Putin’s words yourselves to draw your own conclusions? I thought you might! You’re welcome!!

Putin Addressing the Capture of Over +600 Undercover Spies in 2018:

Furthermore, our counterintelligence agencies operated efficiently and aggressively last year. They conducted successful special operations to cut short the activities of 129 career officers and 465 agents of foreign intelligence services. We see that foreign special services have been trying to increase their Russia operations, doing their utmost to gain access to political, economic, scientific and technological information. This means that you must work even better to counter these activities. We see that, just like in the past, comparable or even stronger efforts are being taken to influence developments in Russia.

Therefore, our countermeasures must be effective, daily and based on modern solutions.
This especially concerns the protection of information on the design, testing and manufacturing of advanced Russian weapons systems, as well as advanced military and dual-use technology. Control in this sphere must be very strict and thorough. However, I would to draw your attention, colleagues, to the other side of this matter: this control must also be sensible, or smart, so to speak.

Putin On Foreign Cyber Attacks Targeting Russia:

Furthermore, it is important to enhance the security of national information resources, primarily, by promptly countering cyberattacks against government bodies, state corporations, communications providers and large companies, and to ensure the failsafe operation of confidential communications systems.

I would like to note that in the past three years coordinated cyberattacks, that is, attacks consisting of several linked actions, have become more frequent. Thus, while in 2014–2015 a little more than 1,500 cyberattacks were recorded a year, which is also quite a lot, but in 2016 their number reached 12,000, about 12,500 in 2017 and as many as 17,000 last year. In effect, these are well-planned large-scale operations that can deal a heavy blow at our national interests.

We must be ready for the continuation of this cyber offensive against Russia and the growth of related threats. In this context, it is important to take prompt additional measures to protect critical information infrastructure and to develop a state system of detecting, warning, and eliminating the effects of computer attacks.

Putin Addressing Movements of NATO & US’s Withdrawl from Missile Treaties:

I understand very well that your daily activities imply serious efforts. Your work is very demanding, given the nature of external and domestic challenges and security threats to Russia.
For example, tensions persist in the Middle East and several other parts of the world. Why am I saying this now? Because all this has its impact on us. The existing pockets of violence and instability provide conditions for terrorist activities, including in Russia, I regret to say.

I would also like to say that NATO continues to expand its infrastructure in close proximity to Russian borders, and the US decision to withdraw from the INF Treaty is a direct step towards eroding the system of international security agreements. This is certainly changing the operational situation, and regrettably, not for the better.

Therefore, I expect the staff of the central office, territorial divisions and special units of the FSB to act professionally and in a concerted manner to attain their goals promptly and efficiently.

Putin Addressing Advancements In Russia’s War On Terror:

I must note that the number of crimes related to terrorism has been decreasing in recent years; the Director will certainly mention this in his remarks. In general, over ten years, this figure has declined dramatically, from 997 to 9 last year. At the same time, please note that the number of prevented terrorist attacks remains high – about 20 a year. This level has been maintained for the last three years. We all know how sensitive and important this is; each strike that has not been averted costs lives.

So what does this reduction in the scope of the terrorist threat mean? First of all, it shows the results of our preventive operations, of our actions to disrupt the plans of terrorist networks and groups. Yet, at the same time, these figures suggest that terrorists still have the potential to prepare attacks. Moreover, as the situation shows, both in our country and elsewhere, both organised groups and single brainwashed fanatics may be behind these crimes.
It is necessary to use new forms and methods of countering such threats, step up preventive work to identify the recruiters and accomplices of terrorists, block the supply of weapons and money, and curb extremist propaganda online. The leadership of the National Anti-Terrorism Committee should keep these issues under constant review.

And of course, it is necessary to develop cooperation and coordinate efforts with our foreign colleagues, mainly in the CSTO and SCO, and with our colleagues in other countries. In this regard, I would like to stress once again, no matter how our current relations with certain countries evolve, Russia will always be open to the closest and most trust-based work in the fight against international terrorism, this common challenge for all of humanity.

As US CyberCommand Declares War On Russia, Here’s A Look At The Laws & International Regulations Governing CyberWarfare

Earlier today I managed to fall down one my proverbial “Rabbit Holes” before stumbling onto some interesting information – if you are into that sort of thing, that is 🤓. I managed to stumble upon it after conducting research into a hack of Russia’s Internet Research Agency at the hands of US Cyber Command  last year, news of which was first released to the public yesterday, February 26th 2019. According to reports, the attack was launched in retaliation for something referred to as “Project Lahkta,” a Russian influence campaign designed to interfere with US democracy during the 2018 Mid-Term Elections. Essentially, US CyberCommand took down the Internet Research Agency before they could launch any sort of preemptive attack compromising the November elections or the dialogue surrounding it.

As the news goes, US CyberCommand allegedly took down the entire network belonging to Russia’s Internet Research Agency – though the specifics into or behind the attack remain unknown. However, what I found interesting is the fact that US Government officials are now going out their way to explain how their actions fell within the acceptable parameters of “Cyber Warfare” as they are outlined in various treaties around the world. Unaware that such things even existed, I then began researching said laws/treaties. What I managed to find were two manuals produced for all the member states belonging to the National Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), entitled “Tallinn On The International Law Applicable To Cyber Warfare” and “Tallinn Manual 2.0 On The International Law Applicable To Cyber Operations.

302 Pages – Full Tallinn On The International Law Applicable To Cyber Warfare:https://www.peacepalacelibrary.nl/ebooks/files/356296245.pdf
30 Page – Tallinn Manual 2.0 On The International Law Applicable To Cyber Operations: http://assets.cambridge.org/97811071/77222/frontmatter/9781107177222_frontmatter.pdf

What makes this news particularly interesting is the fact that the United States Government is out in front of this issue, blatantly calling last years attacks on Russian network infrastructure an act of War. Just let that soak in for a moment, US CyberCommand has literally/publicly just declared War on Russia – at least within cyber space. That’s certainly a noteworthy development – don’t you think? Interestingly enough, the US’s attack occurred just before Russia’s State Duma came out with a series of new proposals aiming to disconnect Russia from the world-wide web, or at least create a backup system of network infrastructure similar to it inside Russia. For the purposes of this article, I have no other reason than to believe that Duma’s announcements in December 2018 were spurned by US military actions in November 2018.

All being fair however, it was Russia whom first declared War on us – wasn’t it? I say this because you might remember a motion filed in a New York State court room on November 9th 2018, in which the Kremlin asked for the immunity of 9 Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU) agents believed to have been behind the hacks and leaks of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton throughout the course of 2015-2016? According to the official motion linked below, Russia demanded the immunity of its agents on the grounds that the hack of Clinton and DNC was ordered as the direct result of a military operation. As such, international military operations are granted immunity in courts worldwide – including here in the US.

However, Russia’s motion in November 2018 was essentially the first time the Kremlin had admitted to directly interfering in/with the US Presidential election – at least publicly. Moreover, considering that the Kremlin itself is now claiming that the hack of Clinton and DNC were military operations, this means that the Kremlin has de facto declared Cyber War on the United States dating as far back as at least 2015. This means that whether anyone likes to admit it or not, the United States and Russia are quite literally at War with one another at the present moment in time. February 2019 just happens to mark the first time in history both sides are publicly admitting as such. Make no mistake, this is literally history in the making….. to be continued.
