On September 18, 2018, Russia and Turkey announced an agreement intended to prevent a humanitarian disaster in Idlib Province, an area of Syria adjacent to Turkey, an area ruled by “rebels.”
Some aspects of the pact are clear, a demilitarized zone to be policed by Russia and Turkey, roads to be open, weapons to be withdrawn and disaster to be averted.
Behind it all is something else, a brilliant move by Russia and Turkey in the face of mindless military aggression unseen since the early days of World War II. Russia and Turkey “checkmated” the Deep State and we are now seeing the rage, Israeli attacks, American threats.
All sources are clear, the US planned a massive air attack, aided by Israel, Britain and France, on Syria by September 21, 2018. The nations involved had moved military forces in place, including US assets from around the world, in order to save the last vestiges of al Qaeda on Syrian soil.
The US already has created a virtual rogue Kurdish state by ethnically cleansing Arab populations from Northern and Eastern Syria, a state that, according to Ankara, represents a threat to Turkish security.
The risk, war with Russia certainly, a war that had been waged with propaganda, sanctions, terrorism and even possible biological warfare, has been in the offing since 2012.
What is also clear is that the war on Russia, Syria and Iran, along with moves against Turkey’s government as well, including an attempted coup, has nothing to do with regional security or any geopolitical rationale.
This is the Deep State defending its ability to maintain a constant state of war by keeping nations weakened, threatened and compliant. It is about control.
Permanent war by the Deep State keeps Europe under threat, overrun with emigrants and terrorism while Deep State operatives feed right wing extremism.
The actions of the regime in Washington couldn’t be clearer. Where Washington under Obama was a blend of real diplomacy and an undercurrent of Deep State operations, Ukraine, Libya, the Syrian so-called “civil war,” under Trump, the “gloves are off.”
This is pure mindless aggression.
