WHY RUSSIA WON’T SELL S-400 TO IRAN; THE YANKEE BLINK IN THE GULF; SYRIAN ARMY CONTINUES ONSLAUGHT IN IDLIB AND HAMA I

Besides the Russian-manufactured S-500, the S-400 is the most desirable system for knocking down enemy aircraft.  The Turks have insisted on purchasing the S-400 despite full-throated condemnation from NATO countries who argue that the system is incompatible with target-acquisition platforms used by NATO. The Turks have dug in their heels and shouted “Fudge!”.  The deal is going through with or without Brussels’ acquiescence.  European dawdling over Turkey’s efforts to join the EU has soured Ankara’s taste for the Continent.

But, efforts to negotiate a deal on the S-400s between Iran and Moscow have floundered.  Moscow was only willing to sell Tehran the S-300, a less efficient and less effective system.  The reason is quite simple:  The Russians don’t trust the Iranians to simply buy the system and the Iranians have a proven record of reverse-engineering everything they get a hold of.  One example is the American drone that was almost brought down on Iranian territory by a near-science fiction-like tractor beam that resulted in Iranian scientists recreating the drone for their own and their allies’ uses.  Syria today uses that same drone design to harass and harry the terrorists in Idlib and Hama.  Although the Chinese have been manufacturing effective drones for years, it is just better to get a drone free from Tehran, a drone whose technology is most familiar to Iranian fighters alongside the Syrian Army.

This is a problem the Americans face with China and its never-ending efforts to steal Yankee technology.  The Russians are simply less transparent than the Americans.  If they’re not sure you won’t re-manufacture the product, they won’t sell it to you.

To prove my point, folks, the S-300 has already been cloned in Iran and the number of batteries on the Bastion-like platform exceeds 75, many of which have already been delivered to Syria.  This has caused some friction with Mr. Putin who, as you all know, doesn’t tolerate what he views as treachery.  In any case, the new and improved S-300 deployed by the IRGC knocked down a drone, the RQ 4 Global Hawk, a couple of days ago – a drone that was touted as “untouchable”.  That is why Trump balked.

THE PERSIAN GULF AT THE STRAITS OF HORMUZ:

At its narrowest point, the Straits of Hormuz, is 21 miles or 39 kms. wide.  Both Iran and Oman, who are the nations at the narrowest point, extended their sea-air territorial claims 12 miles each for a total of 24 miles.  So much for the American position that the drone which was knocked down was in international airspace.  When the drone was detected crossing into Iranian airspace, the ground commander ordered the S-300 to blast it out of the skies.  The Iranians now have a treasure chest of parts from the plane which they have recovered.  The U.S. does not recognize either Iran’s or Oman’s claims to the 12 mile air and sea territorial extensions.  The U.S. only recognizes its own 12 mile territorial barriers.

HAMA:

Two days ago, a drone was detected flying in from Idlib Province and on a straight path to Hama’s Military Airbase.  (See map, above)  The drone was shot down by an MT system and recovered.  It turned out to be locally-built drone of the type used by HTS or Alqaeda.  The drone was very sophisticated, armed with 10 missiles loaded with C-4 and had a very advaced GPS capability.  It also had cameras aboard enabling it to send back images.  The belief is that is was designed by a NATO country which wanted credible deniability as far as supporting terrorists such as these.

Today, terrorists coming out of Kafr Zaytaa, Al-Habeet and Al-Lataamina fired on North Hama at the villages of Al-Shaykh Hadeed and Al-Jarnaba a barrage of rockets which destroyed material assets of the villagers only.  The SAA responded by firing back using artillery and destroyed several rocket launchers.

At Al-Mastooma and the area of Jabal Al-Arba’een SAA spotters pursued a series of convoys moving south towards Areeha.  The SAA opened a torrent of artillery and rocket fire destroying all the convoys leaving the remnant rodents scurrying toward the village of Musaybeen.  The group was Nusra (HTS or Alqaeda).

What makes Iran strong enough to stand against a superpower like the USA? by Elijah J Magnier During the Iran-Iraq war in the 1980s the Islamic Republic of Iran deployed the slogan “Karbala, Karbala we are coming” ( كربلا كربلا ما دارييم مياييم) to “defend the value of Islam”. In Syria the battle cry “Zeinab shall not be abducted twice” helped mobilise Shia allies and rally thousands of men to fight the Sunni Takfiri of al-Qaeda and the “Islamic State” (ISIS). Today, despite the existential battle between Iran and the US, the “Islamic Republic” no longer uses religious slogans, but… Read more »

I believe it’s Sen. Rand Paul, Ron Paul’s son, that Trump has selected as a mediator. Hard to say what it means except that perhaps Trump is looking for a face-saving way out. The way out is to blame Bolton for all foreign policy failures, fire him, then reverse most of what has been done for the past year. It might not be strictly necessary to re-enter JCPOA, but all sanctions on 3rd parties who want to deal with Iran must be lifted, and Grace I must be released forthwith.

“The liberalism will destroy the imperial nations.” Liberalism was born in the British Empire. It´s the core of globalism. In it´s current form it´s sort of virtual imperialism, value-based imperialism. In a way you are right, because in the history, the Imperial Russia and Imperial Germany were the biggest obstacles for the global liberalism(root case for the both World Wars), as Putins Russia is in the same role today. But it(liberalism) saw/sees both powers as a competitors, which is not true, because globalism can´t have competitors. It can only swallow everything or die.

At first we must understand how people perceive the word liberalism. To those engaged in the activities of liberal philosophy, they are benevolent purveyors of good will and progress. To those who wish to conserve their culture and traditions, liberalism is a uninformed invasion of the rights of cultural values. To the governments that wish to manipulate human energy into the interests of governors and business interests, both conservatism and liberalism are levers with which to manipulate the human energy.

To Idiocracy and a_r: I guess that common way to perceive liberalism is global capitalism, or market economy. That is: liberation of markets in a global scale. If that´s not corporate imperialism, then what is? Another aspect of it is value-based liberalism. In addition to global markets, liberals need also global values, a new moral code. I call that syncretism: “the amalgamation or attempted amalgamation of different religions, cultures, or schools of thought.” To achieve these two global goals, liberalism must spread everywhere. That´s why it´s basic nature is more than imperial, it´s target can´t be anything less than a… Read more »

Yes, liberalism was born in the British Empire, because most of its founding philosophers such as John Locke and Adam Smith were British. But the British Empire was never liberal. It only claimed to be liberal when it could use that label for propaganda, as idiocracy suggests below. Adam Smith would have opposed what Britain became in the 19th Century. The crony capitalism of the East India Company was not liberal even when it claimed the right to import cotton to Britain and export cloth free of tariff, because the cotton was stolen through slave labor and the cloth produced… Read more »

Down Here we inherited the term ”liberal” from the Inglese, and it connotes Toryism (‘Republicanism’) — conservatism, because of the Tory-style party founded by a proven monarchist, king-worshiping traitor who nearly got us occupied by fascist Knight-of-Bushido Japan. ”Liberal” is mostly associated with the discreetly charming Bourgeoisie, whose loose commitment to progress can easily be bought off.

ATTACK ON JALMEH After the liberation of northwestern Hama, Syrian troops didn’t get much time to catch their breath. The jihadists launched a new attack against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the northwestern countryside of the Hama Governorate. Backed by Jaysh Al-Izza, the jihadists of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham began their attack by storming the town of Jalmeh from their positions at nearby Jibeen. However, the jihadist attack on Jalmeh would ultimately fail, thanks in large part to the Syrian Arab Army’s strong defenses at the town’s western and northwestern flanks.

The Syrian strategy is practical, unrelenting, unwasteful and most of all, sober.
To all the complainers and doubters, when else in history has a small country been attacked buy the collected mercenaries of the world and still managed to defeat them.
To make the situation more amazing, the Syrians have played a geo strategic game that has stood down half of the world’s military might.

BRUTAL SYRIAN REGIME FATALLY “SQUEEZES A LITTLE GIRL’S HEART!”

13-year-old Siba al-Daddo died during regime bombing on her home in a rebel-held area in northern Aleppo province, local activists said Monday. The aerial and ground bombardment on the town of al-Eys in the southern countryside of Aleppo was brutal to the extent of squeezing the heart of this Syrian child, the activists said. Siba had previously fled with her family from Khan Sheikhoun, after that town was struck by regime chemical weapons in April 2018.

Igor, what are you hinting at? They did invade the other half in a hardly remembered disembarkation in Nice in 1944 (if I’m not mistaken). By the time of the Normandy battle all of France was nazi occupied and all of it was liberated from the north and south combined. Some fortresses were left to rot until the end. The disembarkation in Normandy was more massive as these forces were supposed to invade Germany. France was not very relevant for the outcome of WWII anyways, neither militarily nor strategically, apart from the Channel area. So, there’s your reason, IMO.

It is useful to know that the UK has properties of its own, positive and negative, that render it atypical to European standards, among them crime. You’d probably feel nowhere as insecure as in an English city, not in Paris, Naples, Brussels or Stockholm, nowhere. I don’t know what’s wrong in the UK, but it seems to me, it’s drugs, violence, gangs, immigration and a kind of social deprivation on a scale nowhere to be found in Europe.

Money money money must be funny in a rich mans world. roughly one year ago a high school parent, emailed Latson asking him to confirm that holocaust education was a top priority in Spanish River H.S. He responded by email that the school has a “variety of activities” for holocaust education but “Not everyone believes the Holocaust happened. And you have your thoughts, but we are a public school and not all of our parents have the same beliefs.” He added that an educator has “the role to be politically neutral but support all groups in the school… I can’t… Read more »

Even if the US certify it and they will, It will take lots of time for others to do it and a large number of people will refuse to fly in them. Not without huge incentives like fly 1 get 1 free ticket type etc… It might get to the point that many will refuse to even board any Boeing aircraft.. That is if the US does the usual funny business.. Right now not many know.. But if US pushes then more and more people will notice.

You can’t push for war every day and produce all kinds of weapons and assume they won’t be used in a war one day. So, your wishes may come true. The thing that is preventing a war is the prohibitive costs and side-effects, not the prospect of losing it. The strategy of Iran is similar to France’s towards the USSR, they might attack us but they will lose one arm.

From my understanding, the efficacy of the S-400 is in the new and high level mathematics that underpin the system (and which are invisible to examination) and not in the physical or electronic hardware. Therefore it seems that Russia is confident that it cannot be reverse engineered, which is why they’re handing it out like candy.

According to Boeing’s annual reports, in the last five years Boeing diverted 92% of operating cash flow to dividends and share buybacks to benefit investors. Since 1998, share buybacks have consumed $70 billion, adjusted for inflation. That could have financed several entire new airplane models, with money left over for handsome executive bonuses.

Boeing shares hit another record high after the company boosted its quarterly dividend by a fifth and announced a $18bn share buyback programme.

No concrete news on that, he is under tremendous pressure from the US and Iran, the latest give away to the US to move the PMU into the Iraq Army blew up badly since it was later leaked Iraq’s Army General information/prove that he was feeding the US Forces with the locations of the PMU backed by Iran in the border with Syria so Israel or US could hit them.
As we can see, a lot of people now in Iraq is not trusting Mahdi but it can still be reverted.

https://www.fort-russ.com/2019/07/turkey-reminds-u-s-that-s-400-purchase-was-a-necessity-not-preference/
Quote from this article: “The delivery of the first S-400 batteries to the Turkish side is expected in July of this year, and in October they will take up combat duty.”

So here’s a prediction: if the Americans put sanctions on Turkey or maybe even if Erdogan is just having a bad hair day, Turkey will attack the Kurds in the NE of Syria in October because they will have an S-400 enabled no-fly zone established against AIPACs airforce.

It isn’t and this is why providing Merdogan with the S-400 may not be a good idea from a Syrian perspective. I do not believe the US will put more than formal sanctions on TR. If Merdogan will advance into Syria and if it will happen with or aigainst the US remains to be seen. Providing Merdogan with the S-400 will allow him to improve his double game. Only he’s to know his intentions.

“we have to accept that they know what they do.” Time will tell. Of course, we all hope Russia retains some control of their export models.

As with “we all hope.” I make no assumptions whether the S-400 sale “may” or “may not” be a good idea. “We have to accept that they know what they do,” only in the sense that we have no control over what they do, so must accept reality. We have to hope they do, but only time will tell. Meanwhile, we take solace that they have always said they are committed to Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. Given their invaluable help thus far in restoring government control over the core of the country, if things work out poorly we should… Read more »

Turkey has viewed the United States as a destabilizing force in the Middle East. Turkey’s fraught relationship with the United States has been in a downward spiral for years. Divided over an ever-lengthening list of issues, from Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s authoritarian turn to the United States’ refusal to extradite a Pennsylvania-based cleric accused of trying to overthrow the Turkish government, the putative allies are increasingly at odds. Yet there is still a widespread belief among U.S. policymakers and national security professionals that despite the superficial hostility, the Turkish national security elite continues to view the United States as… Read more »

Didn’t read beyond the pay wall, but it smacks of Turkish apologia. Erdogan always thought Uncle Scam was a destabilizing influence but was forced to go along. The Devil made him do it, and now the poor victim is being betrayed. There may be some truth to it, as with all psyops and propaganda, but nobody forced him to go whole hog. It could have been limited to a little infiltration of proxies and weapons, but no he needed all that industrial equipment and needed to personally profit from the thievery of that, oil and even human organs.

The small but irritating US presence, the temporary land-grab by some Kurds and the death throes of the various fragmented terrorist cells in Idlib are short-term problems that will be overcome, in time.
Turkey remains the biggest barrier to peace in the region. Whether we like to admit it or not, Turkey has permanently ‘annexed vast tracts of Syrian soil and they are never going to give it back (did anyone believe they would?). It has gone the same way as the Golan Heights. How could Iran, Russia and Syria not have seen this coming?

Iran has always said they would deal in good faith. But that means after removing all US sanctions on it. Since the US did not remove any sanctions even after the last deal and just added more and more there is a lot of sanctions to remove before iran will deal with the US. Remember the US even took money from Iranian assets to pay for Al queda blamed 911 victims.. Thats deep that they are taking money from iran who had nothing to do with 911 while they dont do anything to Saudi Arabia which was mainly responsible.

Without Turkey on its side nato as a big hole in its deployment to encircle Russia . In this case Nato will lose the control over the Black sea and the control over Dardanelli and Bosphorus Straits…and that is very important.

Russia has placed the US in a catch 22 situation: 1)The only smart thing for the US to do is to ignore this event, but then it will look weak globally after so many threats of sanctions. 2)Then, the logic US reaction is to sanction the hell out of Turkey plus blocking the F35, with that, the US will push away from NATO Turkey and even closer to Russia and China.

I like your speculation. It dovetails nicely into my long held suspicion that the hard core foreign jihadists that Turkey permitted to flow into Syria are being set up for potential slaughter as the powers above them negotiate the final deal behind the scenes. That negotiation would be very difficult, with so many players and competing interests at play, thus the lack of a final committed push by the SAA to sweep clean Idlib and Turkey’s adamant defence of one of their last “cards” to play in the game. Turkey cannot afford to sacrifice these nutbars until they have secured… Read more »

Oz, it has little to do with “democracy.” It’s part of the information war that I believe we are all fighting. Having these two in the debates is the only way of forcing our dissent into the corporate media. If Tulsi were eventually nominated, that would just be a bonus. I understand people’s misunderstanding of that point and their skepticism, as long as they don’t sabotage the strategy by spreading lies and smears about her youthful, naive patriotism and conservatism. She learned much from those deployments, as have many others who have joined various “veterans for peace” organizations.
