British Media Goes Wild: Now Russia Sends Troops, Military Bases, S-300 Systems And Kalibr Missiles To Libya

Image: The Sun

British media hysteria over the “Russian threat and aggression” reached a new level. The Sun cited unnamed UK intelligence chiefs who have told Prime Minister Theresa May that Russia is sending troops and missiles into Libya to “enforce stranglehold” on the West.

According to the outlet, the unnamed intelligence officials have warned May that Russian President Vladimir Putin plans to make the North African country “his new Syria.”

According to the report, Moscow’s main goal is to seize the biggest illegal immigration route into Europe. The Sun also claimed that it can “reveal” that “dozens” of GRU officers as well as Spetznaz special forces were already on the ground in eastern Libya. They are presumably carrying out training and liaison roles.

According to the outlet, there are already two Russian military bases that are already operational in the cities of Tobruk and Benghazi. The Russian military is, however, using the cover of the mysterious private military company “the Wagner Group” which reportedly already has outposts there.

According to the Sun’s unnamed intelligence officials, Russia is delivering its Kalibr anti-ship and surface cruise missiles and S300 air defense missile systems to Libya.

The Sun also reported that Russia has sided with General Khalifa Haftar, who earlier in 2018 did, in fact, request a Russian military base in the country. It was confirmed by the Head of the Russian Contact Group in Libya Lev Dengov in an interview with Egyptian outlet Youm7. According to him, Haftar had directly contacted the Russian Ministry of Defense to request the establishment of a Russian military base.

There is, as of yet, no official bilateral military cooperation with the forces of General Haftar and the Russian military.

Despite that, the Sun claimed that if Moscow seizes control of the country’s coastline that could lead to a fresh wave of migrants crossing the Mediterranean “like a tap”, according to an unnamed senior Whitehall source.

“What Putin is doing in Libya is straight out of his playbook for Syria and Crimea before that. He sees ungoverned space and is taking it to exact maximum influence over the West. The fact is we are extremely vulnerable to both immigration flows and oil shock from Libya,” the unnamed source commented.

“It is a potentially catastrophic move to allow him to undermine Western democracy, but again we are doing nothing about it,” the source also highlighted.

The Sun also reported that a Russian naval port on the North African coast would also open operations in the western Mediterranean for the first time in years and could potentially threaten the Strait of Gibraltar.

Following the Sun’s report, the outlet cited senior MPs who urged Downing Street to tackle the “Russian threat.”

Commons Foreign Affairs committee chairman Tom Tugendhat was cited as claiming that Russia’s presumed actions are alarming, but also unsurprising.

“It’s is extremely alarming Russia wants to open up a new front against the West in Libya, but it should also come as no surprise. They will without a doubt try to exploit migration routes across Africa. We need a coordinated government response because the destabilization of a sub-Saharan country is intimately linked to UK national security.”

This new round of hysteria follows the US, Dutch and the UK accusations of Russian hacking, as well as various other allegations related to the Arctic, the Skripal case and chemical weapons usage as well as civilian casualties in Syria. The common denominator of all of these accusations is that they are not accompanied by any evidence whatsoever.

Their governments destroyed the country, which triggered the migration in the first place. Now they are trying to accuse Moscow for new wave of migrants!! WTF

I have no idea how the European citizens tolerate these kinds of news. In fact, they will digest this bullshit. Europeans are living zombies without brain.

I cannot remember U.S. culture ever being quite so compromised by ruling class control. Hollywood turns out one jingoistic and militaristic and racist film and TV show after another. Corporate news is completely controlled by the same forces that run Hollywood. It is the complete capitulation of the liberal class to the interests of the increasingly fascistic U.S. elite. And this didn’t start with Donald Trump. Certainly in its current incarnation it goes back at least to Bill Clinton, and really it goes back to the end of World War Two. The ideological trajectory was formed under the Dulles brothers and military industrial complex — representing U.S. business interests and exhibiting a demand for global hegemony. But once the Soviet Union collapsed, the project was accelerated and intensified.

No matter what governments get elected, things aren’t gonna change. The problem lies within the financial, administrative and political systems. As long as they are in the EU and in the Nato, things will remain same.

Imagine if Europe had it’s own independent policy, world could be more balanced. US could not have got away with it’s dirty policies.

The US can do their dirty works only because the Europeans blindly support them. At least, that’s what I think.

Anglo-American Money Owners Organized World War II

by Valentin Katasonov

To mark the 70th anniversary of the Victory against Nazism, we publish a study of Valentin Katasonov on financing of the NSDAP and the rearmament of the Third Reich. The author deals with new documents that confirm the organization of the Second World War by US and UK Bankers, covered by President Franklin Roosevelt and Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, in the hope of destroying the USSR. This study raises new questions that will be addressed in a future article.

Seventy years of harassing political establishment and people of Europe

by Andrey Fomin

Contrary to appearances, the decision of the United States to investigate a possible Russian aid to anti-European parties is not intended to protect Europeans from foreign interference. This is quite the opposite. For 70 years, Washington controls the West European politics prohibiting all forms of genuine democracy.

Europe is too infiltred in US business wise. Europe cant go against US without loosing business as the big turnovers lies in the US market.

For every 1 russian you killed they killed 200 of you jew lapdogs.

Oohhh your so strong im sooo scared of you.

Watch your back boy!

Concrete Mike IS are lap dogs for the Sunni House of Saud. I served 17 months in Syria over the last two years, nobody there is working for the Israelis. You really don’t know much about anything do you.
The US MIC is what is running this show, they don’t even think of Israel anymore except as a customer.
The whole Russian collusion lie was their idea, to prevent Russia and the United States from cooperating against IS. If the Bear and the Eagle start getting along well, then the US Taxpayers wouldn’t be willing to pay for a $Trillion Defense budget.
I suggest you deploy and conduct actual operations instead of making ignorant statements over and over on this forum.

Redsky B

And who owns and runs the US MIC ? The same people who have owned and run
the US for over 100 years ever since they took over our money system and nearly everything else. We are only in Syria and the Mid East for Israel and the clan bosses in the US. Israel gets free stuff from the US so how can they be considered a customer ?

Dan IS

There is nothing bad being backed by other muslims in the region, we know the truth and they know the truth. Actually Qatar helped this movement alot with their influence in the media.

I find it hard to beleive your downplaying the israeli role in this conflict?

Your correct that the MIC does not want us and russia to fight terrorists, the terrorists belong to the MIC.

I dont think you should tell us what you did in syria.

But ignoring the role of israel i this and calling me ignorant is kinda disengenuous.

I operate concrete plants for a living, im not a soldier….but I aint stupid either.

Also dont lump in sunni into this. What the house of saud practices is not sunni its whahabbi, not the same. The saudis are usurping the term sunni.

So i suggest you read and conduct actual research instead of checking wikipedia over and over.

See what I did there?? Not bad for an ignorant hillbilly

And what would you call the Ukraine situation then? Or Serbia/Kosovo one? Or South stream pipeline in Bulgaria? Are the Saudis guilty of that too? Luckily the rest of the world has a memory spanning over years and decades unlike you US lot…

” We need a coordinated government response because the destabilization of a sub-Saharan country is intimately linked to UK national security.”

The British fools think that Libya is a sub-Saharan country. Pathetic, being that they bombed it to smithereens in 2011. Libya is a North African (MENA) country.

Also, the Chinese have a big interest in Libya. And they want it to be a strategic part of the OBR Silk Roads.

Libya has some of the best quality oil in the world, and lots of it. Its called Light Sweet Crude, easily refined and drilled. Libya also has the biggest oil reserves in aAfrica, plus 50 billion cubic units of natural gas.

Maybe if Theresa May's predecessor hadn't bombed Syria into the unstable non-state that it currently is you wouldn't have this current problem/vulnerability. It's like Western governments have lost the ability to think before they act, like they are only emotionally driven these days. No wonder you're shaking in your designer shoes so much for a guy who leads a country with the economy the size of France. Putin at least thinks his moves through before he acts. Well, most of the time. In the land of the blind that means he's the one eyed man.

If that is true, good for the people of libya since russia can help them to attain peaceful sulutions slowly but surely, because they have the best diplomacy for every political factions of libya

In fact migrant will be stop and people can live a normal life again

Not true. Russia wouldn’t be that stupid to involve herself in Libya, not in the foreseeable future anyway. Russia is indirectly supporting the non UN faction.

International relations: the calm before the storm?

by Thierry Meyssan

All international problems are currently suspended, awaiting the results of the US mid-term elections. The partisans of the old international order are gambling on a change of majority in Congress and a rapid destitution of President Trump. If the man in the White House holds fast, the protagonists of the war against Syria will have to admit defeat and move on to other battle fields. On the other hand, if Donald Trump should lose the elections, the war on Syria will immediately be revived by the United Kingdom.

VOLTAIRE NETWORK | DAMASCUS (SYRIA) | 9 OCTOBER 2018

عربي ΕΛΛΗΝΙΚΆ ESPAÑOL FRANÇAIS ITALIANO PORTUGUÊS РУССКИЙ TÜRKÇE DEUTSCH

The current situation – extending from the Russian response to the destruction of its Ilyuchin-20 to the US mid-term elections on 6 November – is uncertain. All the protagonists of the war in Syria are waiting to see whether the White House will be able to pursue its policy of breaking away from the current international order, or if Congress will become the opposition and immediately trigger the process for the destitution of President Trump.

The origins of the war

It has become clear that the initial project by the United States, the United Kingdom, Israël, Saudi Arabia and Qatar will not be realised. The same goes for France and Turkey, two powers that entered the war against Syria somewhat later.

What we need to remember is not the way in which we were informed about the start of the events, but what we have discovered about them since. The demonstrations in Deraa were presented as a « spontaneous revolt » against « dictatorial repression », but we now know that they had been in preparation for a long time [1].

We also need to free ourselves of the illusion that all the members of a Coalition, united in order to achieve the same goal, share the same strategy. Whatever the influence of one or the other, each State conserves its own history, its own interests and its own war objectives.

The United States pursued the strategy of Admiral Arthur Cebrowski, which was the destruction of the State structures in the Greater Middle East [2]. For this they relied upon the United Kingdom, which implemented Tony Blair’s strategy aimed at placing the Muslim Brotherhood in power throughout the region [3]. And also on Israël, which rebooted the strategy of Oded Yinon [4] and David Wurmser [5] for regional domination. The necessary weapons were stored in advance by Saudi Arabia in the Omar mosque [6]. Qatar stepped in by inventing the story about the children whose nails were torn out.

At that time, Saudi Arabia was not seeking to impose a new form of politics on Syria, nor even to overthrow its government. Riyadh’s intention was exclusively to prevent a non-Sunni from becoming President. By some strange historical evolution, the Wahhabites, who, two centuries ago, considered both Sunnis and Chiites as heretics and called for their extermination if they failed to repent, are today presenting themselves as the defenders of the Sunnis and the killers of the Chiites.

As for the tiny emirate of Qatar, it was exacting its revenge after the interruption of its gas pipeline in Syria [7].

France, which should have taken part in the conspiracy by virtue of the Lancaster House agreements, was sidelined because of its unexpected initiatives in Libya. The Minister for Foreign Affairs, Alain Juppé, attempted to push France into rejoining the conspirators, but the ambassador in Damascus, Eric Chevallier, who could see the distortion of facts on the ground, resisted as far as humanly possible [8].

When France was once again admitted to the group conspiracy, it continued its 1915 objective of the colonisation of Syria, pursuing the Sykes-Picot-Sazonov agreements. Just as the French mandate over Syria was considered to be transitory compared with the lasting colonisation of Algeria [9], it is considered, in the 21st century, as secondary to control of the Sahel. Besides which, while attempting to realise its old engagement, Paris pushed for the creation of a national home for the Kurds, on the model used by the British in 1917 for the Jews in Palestine. In order to do so, it allied itself with Turkey [10] which, in the name of Atatürk’s « national oath » [11], invaded the North of Syria in order to create a State to which the Turkish Kurds could be expelled.

While the war objectives of these first four aggressors are mutually compatible, those of the latter two are not compatible with the others.

Besides which, France, the United Kingdom and Turkey are three old colonial powers. All three are now trying to impose their power over the same throne. The war against Syria has thus reactivated their old rivalries.

The Daesh episode within the war against Syria and Iraq

At the end of 2013, the Pentagon revised its plans within the framework of the Cebrowski strategy. It modified its initial plans, as revealed by Ralph Peters [12], and substituted the plan by Robin Wright for the creation of a « Sunnistan » straddling Syria and Iraq [13].

However, in September 2015, the deployment of the Russian army in Syria, as an obstacle to the creation of « Sunnistan » by Daesh, ruined the projects of the six principal partners in the war.

The three years of war that followed had other objectives – on the one hand, to create a new state straddling Iraq and Syria within the framework of the Cebrowski strategy, and, on the other, to use Daesh to cut the Silk Road that Xi Jinping’s China were seeking to reactivate – thus maintaining continental domination over the « Western » part.

The Syrian / Russian victory and the reversal of the United States

The affair of the destruction of the Ilyuchin-20 on 17 September 2018 handed Russia the occasion to terminate this extended war and come to an agreement with the White House to stand against other aggressors. This is a rerun, on a smaller scale, of the Russian / US reaction to the Suez crisis of 1956 [14].

Moscow has not only given the Syrian Arab Army anti-aircraft missiles (S-300’s), but has also deployed an entire integrated surveillance system. As soon as this system is operational, and Syrian officers have been trained to use it, which will take three months at the most, it will be impossible for Western armies to over-fly the country without permission from Damascus [15].

President Trump announced in advance that he intends to withdraw US troops from Syria. He went back on this decision under pressure from the Pentagon, then agreed with his general officers to maintain pressure on Damascus as long as the United States were excluded from the peace negotiations in Sotchi. The deployment of the Russian armies – for which the White House had probably given its agreement – provided President Trump with the occasion of forcing the Pentagon to back off. It would have to withdraw its troops, but it could maintain the presence of its mercenaries (as it happens, these would be the Kurds and Arabs from the Democratic Forces) [16].

The Syrian Minister for Foreign Affairs, Walid el-Mouallem, speaking before the General Assembly of the UNO, demanded the immediate and unconditional withdrawal of the foreign forces of occupation, US, French and Turkish [17].

If the United States leave, then the French and Turkish troops will be unable to stay. The Israëlis would no longer be able to overfly and bomb the country. The British have already left.

However, Tel-Aviv, Paris and Ankara still hope that President Trump will lose the elections of 6 November and will be fired. They are therefore awaiting the results of this fateful election before they decide.

If it happens that Donald Trump should win the mid-term elections in Congress, another question will arise. If the Western powers give up on the battle in Syria, where will they go to continue their endless war? This is indeed a reality on which all experts agree – the Western ruling class has become so swamped in bad blood and hubris that it is unable to accept the idea of being geared back behind the new Asian powers.

Wisdom would dictate that once the war is lost, the aggressors should withdraw. But the intellectual disposition of the West prevents them from doing so. The war here will cease only when they find a new bone to gnaw on.

Only the United Kingdom has given its response any thought. It is clear by now that although London maintains its diplomatic pressure on Syria via the Small Group, its attention is already focused on the revival of the « Grand Game » which saw the Crown confront the Tsar throughout all of the 19th century. After having invented the Skripal affair, and on the model of the « Zinoviev Letter » [18], London has just ’caught’ the Russian Exterior Intelligence Services red-handed in their attempt to discover what is being plotted against them by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPWC).

This geopolitical doctrine is independent of the events which serve as its pretext. The « Grand Game » was the strategy of the British Empire. Its resumption by the current United Kingdom is the consequence of Brexit and the policy of « Global Britain ». Just as in the 19th century, this anti-Russian configuration will lead in time to an exacerbated rivalry between London and Paris. On the contrary, should Theresa May fail, along with the questions concerning Brexit and the maintenance of the United Kingdom in the European Union, all these projections will be cancelled.

If France is now studying the possibility of leaving the Middle East in order to concentrate on the Sahel, the position of the United States is a lot more problematic. Since 9/11, the Pentagon has enjoyed a certain autonomy. The ten combat Commanders of the armed forces no longer receive orders from the president of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee, but only from the Secretary of Defense.

With time, they have become the veritable « viceroys » of the « American Empire » – a function which they do not wish to see reduced by President Trump. Some of them, like the Commander for South America (SouthCom) [19], intend to continue with the Cebrowski strategy, despite the admonitions of the White House.

So there remains much uncertainty. The only positive step taken concerns Daesh – for three years, the Western powers pretended to be fighting this terrorist organisation, while at the same time supplying them with weapons. Today, Donald Trump has ordered the cessation of this experience of an explicitly terrorist state, the Caliphate, and the Syrian and Russian armies have pushed the jihadists back. The Westerners have no desire to see their friends, the « moderate rebels », now qualified as « terrorists », turn up in their countries en masse. Consequently, whether they admit it or not, they hope they will all be killed in Syria.

It is the US mid-term elections which will decide whether the war continues in Syria or move on to another battle field.

Thank you, there is plenty there to disagree with but one thought is just like a thorn in my side:”invaded North of Syria in order to create a State to which the Turkish Kurds could be expelled”? You obviously don’t know much about Syria specially about Aleppo and Idlib, the two areas where “Turkmens” (Syrian Turks) live. There is also other dissidents there who all have wet dreams of the Great Ottoman Empire and are looking towards Ankara in hope of any signs of their dreams realization. The Kurds there are totally out of the picture (dream) and their fate was probably dreamt of in line with the fate of Armenians, Greeks, Serbians and other smaller nations who nearly vanished inside the Ottomans Imperia

I am humble and have none pretensions,
never been in Syria,
but knowing a bit about Damas Omeyyades
fantastic heritage they left in Andalusia.

Alhambra is still today a dreams legend.

Versailles is in France what Alhambra is in Spain,
but about 1’000 years older….

Spain/Nato bombing Syria is unacceptable !

Aside that I have many long time friends laic Muslims,
many VIP former rulers families, Ambassadors,
and casual Peoples from almost every Muslim Countries…
All of them have an “Humanist” viewpoint, and are scandalized
by what is going on in the Middle-East !

The Daesh episode within the war against Syria and Iraq

At the end of 2013, the Pentagon revised its plans within the framework of the Cebrowski strategy. It modified its initial plans, as revealed by Ralph Peters [12], and substituted the plan by Robin Wright for the creation of a « Sunnistan » straddling Syria and Iraq [13].

However, in September 2015, the deployment of the Russian army in Syria, as an obstacle to the creation of « Sunnistan » by Daesh, ruined the projects of the six principal partners in the war.

The three years of war that followed had other objectives – on the one hand, to create a new state straddling Iraq and Syria within the framework of the Cebrowski strategy, and, on the other, to use Daesh to cut the Silk Road that Xi Jinping’s China were seeking to reactivate – thus maintaining continental domination over the « Western » part.

The Syrian / Russian victory and the reversal of the United States

The affair of the destruction of the Ilyuchin-20 on 17 September 2018 handed Russia the occasion to terminate this extended war and come to an agreement with the White House to stand against other aggressors. This is a rerun, on a smaller scale, of the Russian / US reaction to the Suez crisis of 1956 [14].

Moscow has not only given the Syrian Arab Army anti-aircraft missiles (S-300’s), but has also deployed an entire integrated surveillance system. As soon as this system is operational, and Syrian officers have been trained to use it, which will take three months at the most, it will be impossible for Western armies to over-fly the country without permission from Damascus [15].

President Trump announced in advance that he intends to withdraw US troops from Syria. He went back on this decision under pressure from the Pentagon, then agreed with his general officers to maintain pressure on Damascus as long as the United States were excluded from the peace negotiations in Sotchi. The deployment of the Russian armies – for which the White House had probably given its agreement – provided President Trump with the occasion of forcing the Pentagon to back off. It would have to withdraw its troops, but it could maintain the presence of its mercenaries (as it happens, these would be the Kurds and Arabs from the Democratic Forces) [16].

The Syrian Minister for Foreign Affairs, Walid el-Mouallem, speaking before the General Assembly of the UNO, demanded the immediate and unconditional withdrawal of the foreign forces of occupation, US, French and Turkish [17].

If the United States leave, then the French and Turkish troops will be unable to stay. The Israëlis would no longer be able to overfly and bomb the country. The British have already left.

However, Tel-Aviv, Paris and Ankara still hope that President Trump will lose the elections of 6 November and will be fired. They are therefore awaiting the results of this fateful election before they decide.

If it happens that Donald Trump should win the mid-term elections in Congress, another question will arise. If the Western powers give up on the battle in Syria, where will they go to continue their endless war? This is indeed a reality on which all experts agree – the Western ruling class has become so swamped in bad blood and hubris that it is unable to accept the idea of being geared back behind the new Asian powers.

Wisdom would dictate that once the war is lost, the aggressors should withdraw. But the intellectual disposition of the West prevents them from doing so. The war here will cease only when they find a new bone to gnaw on.

Only the United Kingdom has given its response any thought. It is clear by now that although London maintains its diplomatic pressure on Syria via the Small Group, its attention is already focused on the revival of the « Grand Game » which saw the Crown confront the Tsar throughout all of the 19th century. After having invented the Skripal affair, and on the model of the « Zinoviev Letter » [18], London has just ’caught’ the Russian Exterior Intelligence Services red-handed in their attempt to discover what is being plotted against them by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPWC).

This geopolitical doctrine is independent of the events which serve as its pretext. The « Grand Game » was the strategy of the British Empire. Its resumption by the current United Kingdom is the consequence of Brexit and the policy of « Global Britain ». Just as in the 19th century, this anti-Russian configuration will lead in time to an exacerbated rivalry between London and Paris. On the contrary, should Theresa May fail, along with the questions concerning Brexit and the maintenance of the United Kingdom in the European Union, all these projections will be cancelled.

If France is now studying the possibility of leaving the Middle East in order to concentrate on the Sahel, the position of the United States is a lot more problematic. Since 9/11, the Pentagon has enjoyed a certain autonomy. The ten combat Commanders of the armed forces no longer receive orders from the president of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee, but only from the Secretary of Defense.

With time, they have become the veritable « viceroys » of the « American Empire » – a function which they do not wish to see reduced by President Trump. Some of them, like the Commander for South America (SouthCom) [19], intend to continue with the Cebrowski strategy, despite the admonitions of the White House.

So there remains much uncertainty. The only positive step taken concerns Daesh – for three years, the Western powers pretended to be fighting this terrorist organisation, while at the same time supplying them with weapons. Today, Donald Trump has ordered the cessation of this experience of an explicitly terrorist state, the Caliphate, and the Syrian and Russian armies have pushed the jihadists back. The Westerners have no desire to see their friends, the « moderate rebels », now qualified as « terrorists », turn up in their countries en masse. Consequently, whether they admit it or not, they hope they will all be killed in Syria.

It is the US mid-term elections which will decide whether the war continues in Syria or move on to another battle field.

Russia is trying to contain Europe and surround it with military Kalibr bases.

The next Russian military base is planned on Kreta in the middle of Mediterranian to controle British sun beaches on the excuse “Russia was invited by the local government of Kreta”.

Mark Flynn

Haha, so the Zionists were responsible for the taking down of a Russian plane with the murder of Russian personal, Russia responds and has basically made the Syrian airspace a no go area for the Zionists and now, as usual, the Zionists try and get others to do their dirty work. The Sun newspaper is owned by Zionist Murdoch and now he ramps up his anti Russian bullshit, lol, and people actually buy and read this rag of a paper..

The owners and management of the Sun newspaper have an IQ of 10-. Their readers have an IQ of 1-. This article was written for them. I am surprised that South front would reprint such an article.

Oh wow i needed a good laugg this morning.

I will take to liberty to remind our collègues at the sun, that it was in fact uk france usa.and canada that destabilized libya in the first place, that your morronic actions caused the migrant crisis.

Hah it gets even funnier, YOU knew what you were doing in libya, you caused the migrant crisis on purpose. You robbed libya blind, sent the army’s arsenal to al nusra in syria. All under the watchful eyes of our benevolent governments.

To all of you who beleive this article. Its toilet paper, in fact its an insult to shit to scrape it off your rectum with this “paper”.

This is a projection of the evils our governments are doing.

We have done all these things to ourselves. Russia did nothing.

Promitheas Apollonious

well…. according to the brits they(russians) are doing something now. From cross referencing this info seems also to be true, to some extent.

Concrete Mike

Even if it is true, I dont care to be honest, the claim that russia is destabilizing europe with migrants is laughable.

Europe destabilized europe with migrants. Its like calling the cops and say arrest glock.company because i shoot myself in the foot.

Its nonsense. And some idiot is going to beleive that somewhere.

Promitheas Apollonious

Is not a matter of caring or not is a matter of knowing what is happening on the ground there and connect the dots my friend. From libyan and Syrian shores, russia can control the whole of Mediterranean sea, Aegean sea and Ionian sea in case the americans and allies try to close bosporus. For the russians to do such a move it means they getting ready for a very serious war.

Americans in Greece are turning it into a big military base and things are not looking very good here. Turkey is getting ready for attacking both cyprus and greece from the looks of it for the oil and gas and we all wonder where russia will stand on this. Since is the one supplying turkey with S400 and have given her part of syria to keep her happy.

Concrete Mike

Ok i understand what you are saying. Its alarming.

The reason i put this story in the either no or gray basket is simply this.

I feel that the russians would be too vulnerable to set up shop in Lybia.

So after thinking about this, i will put it in my gray basket. I dont know enough of north africa or how it affects southern europe. And it has a hint of maskirovska.about it.

Tommy Jensen

Greece already got a lot of chances, and ran to Wall Street´s debt hole every single time.

Promitheas Apollonious

This is what happens when you vote of pieces of trash and employees of the globalists. Neogreeks are all amerikanized and c*ck suckers with no fail.

Ivan Freely

Turkey getting ready to attack both Cyprus and Greece? Erdie haven’t finished dealing with the US-backed Kurds. Also, it’ll be years before the S-400 is delivered to Turkey.

Promitheas Apollonious

You need to follow what happens in the area and you have your answer. As for S400 delivered to turkey… soon you realize that weapons dont make warriors.

The globalist stooges the neogreeks insist to vote as their government already sold the country out with the directions of the UK/Usrael and allowed to fill the country with the invading armies of pakistanis and afghans and another half a million is waiting at the borders to come in with the european pieces of shit and MKOs to pass them in the country.

Greece is been destroyed and is becoming the prototype of what globalist mean of multi culture as well what the future holds for europe. they turning a traditionally christian country into islamic one. Watch how it ends and I hope the turks instead of farting do what they keep pushing to happen. Then they receive their answer not from the politicians but from our war teams.

Ivan Freely

Thanks. I just read an article regarding the Oil and Gas fight near Cyprus. However, I doubt the Turks would further escalate the situation by invading Greece. They really need to deal with the US-backed Kurds first, and should be more cooperating with regional powers that are at odds with the Kurds.

As for the mass migration, Europeans are slowly waking up, but do they know it’s the Zionists that is stirring the pot, is the question. The situation is very complicated with all the groups and their agendas.

Promitheas Apollonious

Invading Greece no the fight there is about the Aegean sea if they attempt to invade Greece it be also the last mistake they be making. On the other hand with so many isis allegedly refugees in Greece and europe they dont need to invade anything just activate them.

Europeans they not waking up, either slowly or other wise. The ones who are aware of the problem are very few and always been aware of the problem, but with the policies the EU has established even the few they are aware are scare shitless to do anything about it, as you are automatically marked as racist and many more and more than likely you never land a job again since 99% of europe are employees and tax slaves, to the system.

The turks will try and start problems in Cyprus because they think is an easy target and has not the means to do much about it. And we are prepared to burn turkey from end to end and same goes for all the europeans countries who support them. So we see what happens at the end.

Promitheas Apollonious

none thinking person cares what the morons of west are saying Mike. We are informing each other or we trying to as to what facts are and not the hallucinations western morons have, or the bed time stories they sell to their callable voters.

I suppose it never occurs to them to consider that Libya was wholly stable under the rule of Muammar Gaddafi until, Lo and Behold! France, Little Britain and US decided to bomb the Country out of existence so that, according to themselves, they could remove Gaddafi from Office. If they really wanted to remove him they could have assassinated him on any one of numerous occasions throughout the previous few years and/or at any time since but no, the real reason was to crate outright conflagration throughout North Africa all of which has led to the surging numbers of Refugees and Migrants to Europe. The Stupid Fuxxers couldn’e even manage a change of Government in Libya without causing wholesale death and destruction together with uncontrolled migrant flows into Europe. You Reap What You Sow but here, these geniuses sowed Carrot Seeds and grew Nettles.
