US and Israel Nightmare Scenario: Iraq, Syria, Iran Restart Their Strategic Cooperation Projects

Donate

Syria, Iran and Iraq are to continue their project on connecting their railway systems into one, Syrian outlet al Watan reported.

Now, the countries are working on the resumption of the project connecting the railways of Syria, Iran and Iraq and are determining the date of the meeting between the representatives of the countries to develop the points of view”, an anonymous source at the Syrian Ministry of Transport said.

A date was set for a trilateral meeting, since the project was an important strategic point, that was stopped during the war in Syria.

The aim of the project was to provide Iraq and Iran with access to Syrian ports. Before the outbreak of the war in 2011, Syria had completed 97% of the project, but large portions of the railway system were destroyed during the clashes.

Furthermore, there is a current project to link Iran and Iraq through Basra and Syria would like to also join in.

There is an agreement between Syria and Iraq to connect the railways between the two countries through the Altnif and now the countries are seeking to evaluate the project through a meeting to assess the possibility of re-employment and the status of government agencies in the three countries When the project is clarified, then a final decision can be made. The project could also take up to 4 years.

Al Watan also reported that there were understandings with the Chinese side to be a partner in this project, which will be parallel to the Belt and Road Initiative, which is planned to be completed for the benefit of several countries, including Syria, Iraq, Iran, China, Pakistan among others.

In the context of the Iraqi Ministry of Transport, there will be talks on linking Skaki between Iran, Iraq and Syria.

In a statement issued on the sidelines of the meeting of the joint committee between Iraq and Syria in Damascus, Talab al-Husseini said that “in the light of the guidance of the Iraqi Transport Minister Abdullah al-Aybi in the field of transport and the importance of rail links between the two countries during the Akashat- – Khnevis coordination by the Iraqi, Iranian and Syrian sides to hold a trilateral meeting to discuss the possibility of implementing the rail link between the three countries to complement what was agreed at the bilateral meeting held on July 5, 2014, where it was stressed to move forward to strengthen bilateral relations And improve the level of economic, commercial, scientific and technical cooperation in all sectors.”

Al-Husseini added that the road to joint cooperation in the economic field has been reached and all obstacles and restrictions preventing the promotion of higher volumes of trade between the countries were gone. There would also be discussions for cooperation in energy, electricity, land, sea, air travel and skiing.

Separately, in a sign of normalization, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abbadi discussed the opening of the al-Qaim border crossing with a Syrian delegation on February 7th.

Iraqi Minister of Interior Qassim al-Araji on February 12th confirmed that al-Abbadi had given his permission to open the crossing.

Prior to the closing due to war, as well as the necessity for Iraq to cleanse the area of ISIS militants, trade was realized through the Iraqi city of al-Qaim and the city of Albu Kamal on the Syrian side.

Prior to the closing, annual trade turnover was estimated at $5 billion. After the war in Syria began, it was still operational but at a fraction of its activity and when ISIS emerged, it was completely halted.

Recently, Syria also announced that it would lease the port of Latakia to Iran from October 1st, 2019, as per an agreement between the two countries.

Earlier, on February 25th Syrian president Bashar al-Assad’s visited Tehran, where he met with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, and Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei. The trip was Assad’s first since the beginning of the conflict in Syria, approximately 9 years ago.

The situation of the improving relations between Syria, Iran and Iraq and them continuing and furthering their cooperation is a sort of “nightmare scenario” for Israel and the US.

It is quite likely that there would be a strong negative response, since all of their efforts to divide them by means of sanctions, threats (and even active strikes on targets by Israel) have resulted in failure. Even the remaining US troops in the al-Tanf military base proved ineffective in discouraging the restarting of logistical and military links between the friendly countries.

    The rail and transport links between Iran ,Iraq and Syria , are in fact the main reason for the US Coalition of Terror’s assaults on these countries, in my opinion.

    Without the dominance by Israeli and Western parasitical companies of these trade routes , the Khazar’s in control ‘forbid’ any such trade routes.

    • Neil

      It’s one of the main reasons, for sure. Any ‘silk road’ land route from China to western Europe has to go through Iran. Western powers have been very successful at preventing this traffic, and made China, as well as Iran, Iraq and Syria, suffer. This is one of the reasons for the West’s anti-Iran strategies.

    • Brother Ma

      Now that I know 97% was done before the 2011 attack on Syria I am very sure it was certainly very likely it was a main reason. They allowed Syria to expend its energy and money on building it then destroyed it at the last viable moment. Pipped at the post!

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Putin gives green light to Zionists to attack Syria and bars Shoigu from meetings

        Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and his staff were conspicuously absent from the Israeli leader’s Moscow talks on April 4 when Putin delivered the body of an Israeli soldier with unprecedented pomp and ceremony at the Kremlin, never even accorded to Russian fallen soldiers. They were demonstrating the reservations they have about American intervention in the bilateral Russian-Israeli understandings over the IAF’s targeting of military assets and arms shipments in Syria.
        As of now, the weak Russian military in Syria is barred from interfering in Israel’s anti-Iran offensive by the threat of American reprisals.

        The Iranians were furious and the Syrians helpless when the Russian military made no move to defend their sites against Israel’s latest attack on the military facilities they share with the Syrians in and around Masyafin the western Hama province. Syrian opposition
        sources cited three Israeli targets and 17 casualties, including deaths, but it was not immediately clear whether they were Syrian or pro-Iranian militia fighters. Russia seems to have known about the Israeli attacks and had switched off Syria’s air defence systems. The Iranians lack any air defences in Syria and have been subjected to repeated air attacks and their repeated threats of reprisals have failed to materialize.

        • Brother Ma

          Sadly I tend to believe you now. I heard the Israelis gave Russia five minutes of warning but not that It switched off its AA s300s.

          I now tend to believe that the switch off was a lie and that Russia is just not able to pick up the missiles coming in .

          You said that Russia switched off Syria’s defences. That is even worse than just switching off its own! I know Russia can suggest to the Syrians that they should never fight back but should never have the power to switch off all Syria defences. Time for Syria to buy Chinese or Iranian AA s as well so that Russia will not be able to switch it off unilaterally. That will make Israel natoyankees have an element of fear when attacking.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Keep in mind that Golan and Southern Lebanon are barely 60 kms from Damascus and even a rudimentary radar can pick up any attacking jets. The Russian bastards even know when the Zionists take off from their limited airfields in northern occupied Palestine and simply de-activate SAA air defences. They have even stopped the SAA from launching the Iranian upgraded SA-2 Sayyed which brought down a Zionist F-16I a couple of years ago. Now it is totally up to Iran to see what it wants to do or keep on getting its soldiers killed. There has to be retaliation no matter the cost.

        • Greg Schofield

          It should be obvious that if Russia did do as you suggest, it would severely undermine its present standing as a fair partner. Operation bullshit ++ as it would be joined with anti-Israel = antisemitic; all that would be heard would be Russia attacks Israel Pogrom II. Putin’s soft handing withIsrael and its regional ally Saudi Arabia is a smart unraveling of the two, Israel without the Saudi’s covering for them is a big limit, but then they have to be teased away.

          Syria is also biding its time, it does not need nor want to inflame Israeli attacks by bringing down one of their jets over Lebanon. Lebanon is about to have a do-over, as it is being coaxed politically and economically into joining in with Iran Iraq and Syria; Hezbollah is certainly aware of this and does not demand protection, nor do the Revolutionary Guards.

          This is three dimensional chess being played simultaneously in the immediate, short and long term. Once Israel is isolated again with militarily strong and economically developing states; then the war-hawk Zionist will go home to America, and the Israeli’s who want to live in their homes in peace will resurface. It is not Israel but America that has to be brought down; the unilateral power its fiance system is the last shoe to drop.

        • MeMad Max

          I highly doubt that Russia switched off Syrian air defenses as that would be impossible in the claimed 5 minutes and SAA air defenses are very independent, especially after the start of the war and would most likely not receive or disobey a order to stand down. Ur post is full of shit and shoud switch itself off….

      • Jens Holm

        Thats total crap of the worst kind. Its about what the best solutions are, fx a very good motorway was build in Northern Syria for the same reasons, by Syria having a very lousy and slowe develloped infrastructure made in Assads and Baathist.

        • verner

          shut up jerk

    • verner

      at least one of the reasons and do not forget turkey, which would love to hitch its wagon to this new alliance (and I suspect you can add Qatari money in the background as well) and in due course, the new gas line from south pars to europe through iran, iraq, syria, turkey greece and so on. and the european union managed to destroy a perfectly good income for bulgaria when the southstream was discontinued on orders of the criminally insane and corrupt to the core morons of washington dc.

      • FlorianGeyer

        Turkey though has a massive problem IF indeed she does wish to be part of this Syrian,Iraqi,Iranian project. Turkey has armed and aided Al Nusra, ISIS etc , and these gangs would easily be employed by the US to cause havok within Turkey.

        As the US have found out in Afghanistan , a past proxy terrorist group will often turn on its old masters.

        • verner

          supposedly a new alliance has been formed with turkey, iran and qatari money – true or not but turkeyand iran are sort of natural buddies due to being next door neighbours and both consider the kurds as vermin that should just shut up and go home – qatar shares the south pars gasfield with iran and would prefer that the gas is shipped via pipeline through iran iraq, syria and turkey and turkey hates the squatters and has a military base in qatar with some 10000 soldiers which they beefed up when mohammed bin salman tried to squash qatar for not playing ball. so they are more or less on the same board and the common enemy is actually the squatters (and from qatar’s point saudi) and qatar would love to get the 1 billion jared kushner extorted from qatar with the promise that he, jared, could stop mohammed bin salman’s attack on qatar. and building railroads is good for the morale and constructive and in general a good idea, in fact a very chinese way of looking at things – less guns (moronistan’s way of life) and more cooperation, railroads, harbours und zu weiter..

    • S Melanson

      I posted a comment above and realise it is relevant to your post so I pasted it here and any thoughts appreciated.

      ————————

      Completing infrastructure in a hostile environment is not recommended. Rail lines are fixed targets and vulnerable, especially with US and friends in Eastern Syria that puts them in the thick of such infrastructure building. Syria and Iraq both need to be secured and alliances settled before major investment. By settled I refer to which bed will Turkey sleep – the playing of both sides in military purchases is ongoing but how long will Erdogan continue this? Was Turkey promised Syrian land in a behind the scenes deal? It seems that way to me.

      On September 17, 2018 an internal shift in power relations took place with Shoigu taking the drivers seat from Putin. The IL-20 incident between nuclear armed Israel and Russia was dangerous enough but Israel’s very slow realization of the shift in Russian policy to decidedly anti-Israel while power relations were in flux amplified the danger and most, myself included, did not fully appreciate this at the time. I have been following events and see Putin steadily reasserting his authority. This makes for very volatile situation in Russia and this has been the case for many years and is reflected in the schizophrenic foreign policy the past few years.

      In some ways Russian policies are like the US in their contradictions although the US is like a comic tragedy written by a group of nihilistic surrealists needing some entertaining theatre to dispel their bouts of existential depression.

      Whatever one may think of Putin and Shoigu, both are great men that have elevated Russia’s international stature and this cannot be taken away. I hope they find a way to move forward without tearing Russia down or triggering global war which seems to be the US project and they got the Armageddon dream team – Bolton and Pompeo.

      Russia, do not sacrifice your values and your allies to try to achieve longer term goals. You may find it was your allies and values that brought you to a place where your goals were attainable and this will ultimately doom your plans – which Toyota painfully discovered when they sacrificed quality and safety to achieve number one global car producer – the reason they could achieve number one was the reputation for quality and safety which they sacrificed. Toyota learned their lesson quickly and there are parallels to learn from.

      And since Toyota learned, they were in a position to supply the Coalition many many Toyota’s for Houthi target practice for never ending orders for Toyota’s to replace the many blown up Toyotas. So successful, Toyota was declared winner of the war in Yemen. The Coalition, with no other contender anywhere close, won the Nobel Prize for Incompetence… well earned. The Houthis, well they transcend politics and won the hearts and gratitude of the people of all nations. Putin please rethink Russia’s policy towards the Arabia Peninsula. Do not underestimate soft power, it is ultimately the strongest form of power and I am speaking from experience.

        When people speak of the Irish or Chinese are Japanese are Yemenis, they’re speaking of a people who are of the same background, who look similar, same language, same food, same culture. But the Jews are African, Asian, European, Arab, who had nothing in common except for a common religion. How can the Chinese love Jews and 99.99999% of them never met a Jew? I have an idea for you: If you would take the Jew in my region where he does not belong, take them to China, take them to Nicaragua, I don’t care, just take them away.

      • verner

        thought so since the first comment posted under the name saladin – a friggin jew!

        anyhow, the idea that the chines love jews is fallacious and not true -however the chines prefer to do business rather than wage war, unlike the morons from moronistan – and as you well know, the chines wouldn’t allow a jew to come within a mile of a chines company/bank
        in china and the same goes for chines companies/banks say in europe(moronistn und zu weiter.

    railways are the future although the morons in washington dc continue to rely on air transports – and allows the railroads in the lower 48 go to ruin due to lack of maintenance due to shortage of funds since those funds go towards weapons and more murder and more devastation and more destruction. what a larf.

    only a humongous veterans demonstration in washington dc, say 1 to 3 million battle hardened veterans, assembled right before congress and so on and the criminally insane and to the core corrupt junta in the white house would tremble (no way they would dare to send the national guard against the veterans).

    • Jens Holm

      You dont know, what You talk about. USA has one of the longest rairoad lines in the world for internal transportation.

      Furthermore You seemes to forget, that Syria, Turkey, Iran and Iraq already has very long railroad lines, which is not renewed by locals and build by Ottomans an Eurpeans

      One of the most fampus ones is the help from Basra to USSR helping USA by Qam to Russian with moe then 100.000 jeeps, oil Bedford trucks and 13.000 airplanes.

      At WW2 USA also delievered a complete railroad system with hundreds of locomotives and waggons incl. rails making a line north of Leningrad from Murmans.

      So You dont know, what You talk about.

      Trains are the future, where they are the best solutions for very different reasons. Danes fx build out our metrolines under Copenhagen, because there is no space for big roads anymore. Many do that.

      • verner

        sure idiot you’re right

  • Jens Holm

    Many plans are made, but its hard to see the importance. It make a lot of sence transporting oil to Europe but thats making a better pipeline in stead of the one, which already is there.

    The Syrian railroad part, which partly are demolished, are very slow second class ones 30-40 km pr hour. It make only a little sence, but of course a little sence is better then none. Those 97% makes me laugh and compare with Safari tourisme added ruins.

    I would say a motorway from south of Raqqa and DEZ and “East” would be much better being more flexible.

    The main plans for the uprises are devellopment of the poor parts. I see none of that.

    I would conclude, that its better to have several plans and some come through, then having none comes through. At least this article is not about war but one of many plans for better conection lines in that area.

        It is not true that Israel is only the homeland of the Jews persecuted in the world to be at peace. The Golan, the annexed West Bank are steps towards the great Israel, Netanyahu’s request to destroy Iran after Iraq and Syria are part of the same strategy. The state of the Jews is an imperialist regime with Nazi ideology. Ganz, Lieberman, Netanyahu, Shaked, Bennet, Ben Shapiro are glaring examples.

    • S Melanson

      Not quite. Israeli foreign policy is straightforward. It is consistent with the Offensive branch of Realism in Foreign policy theory. Study the Ben Gurion Doctrine, it still guides Israeli policy today.

      Realism stresses the primacy of national security to be achieved by whatever means necessary regardless of international opinion. Policy is to achieve defendable state as it was indefensible with no strategic depth under the partition plan. Territory was acquired to reduce the perimeter length of borders (West Bank) and make use of rivers (Jordon River, Suez Canal) and rough terrain and higher ground (Golan Heights). The territorial gains of the 1967 Six Day War achieved much of Israel’s objectives for a defendable state except the border with Lebanon – hence the Israeli attempts to occupy up to the Litani River and rough terrain as a natural defensive line adding strategic depth – this objective has not gone well for Israel.

      Notice that the territory occupied by Israel meets goals for a defendable state. Since 1967 (52 years ago), other than failed attempts to occupy south of the Litani River, Israel has not occupied more territory and in fact relinquished the Sinai to achieve peace with Egypt – a peace that has held for forty years – Sadat made peace with Israel knowing he would pay with his life and Begin was leader of Likud and agreed to give up Sinai so if peace is possible then, it is possible today.

      • RichardD

        What peace with Egypt is that? Hamas wouldn’t be hitting Israel on a regular basis without Egyptian support. Have you looked at the military and economy that the Egyptians are building? The days of losing conventional wars to the Jews are over.

        Israel is surrounded by enemies of it’s own making. The only thing keeping them at bay is the US, not stolen land. And the vampire Jews have loaded the US up with debt to the point where it can’t afford to fight a major war of any duration. Which is why they’ve stopped.

        The solution to many of the middle east’s problems is dejudification and replacing Israel with a unified, dejudified Palestine. As part of dejudifying the planet to create a much better Jew free future without the evil, crime and corruption of the Jew pedophile mass rape cult and criminal organization causing all of the problems that it currently is. The Arabs recognized this early on. Which is why almost all of them dejudifed as the Israel problem worsened.

        And they’re not alone. With rare exception the non Christian world has been almost completely dejudified. As the entire planet should be. 99% of Jews live in Christendom, despite the fact that Christ was a vocal anti Judaic. This needs to end. Jew tolerance in Christian nations needs to be replaced with outlawing Judaism and placing this evil cult in the trash can of history where it belongs.

          all the wars that have involved Israel ended with more landgrab on their part.

          Unless you plan to put the US, Russia, China, and the EU all on one side against Israel, the correct way is the one towards peace, not war.

          Years ago, Israeli themselves had gotten this simple logic, and their leaders put down exceptionalisms and negotiated.

          The fact that some of these leaders were killed (by the Mossad ofc or part of it) and what followed is a very clear pointer to the real situation.

          • RichardD

            The Yinon plan or some version of it that Israel has followed for 100 years to the present day is based on perpetual war and regional turmoil. Israeli negotiations are part of the Yinon plan implementation of non stop trouble making. Palestine has never been at peace since the Jews arrived in numbers 100 years ago to advance their colonization project. They deliberately create non stop war and turmoil with their racist crimes against the Palestinians and their neighbors. As part of their attempts to prop up their crime state that exponentially per capita has more resolutions for international law violations against it than any other state. The Jews are in a league of their own as international law scofflaws and violators. Which includes Jewmerica. No one else even comes close.

        • S Melanson

          Interesting, glad you make these points as I see changes in Israeli recognition as a bellwether of the globalist war with the proponents of a multipolar world.

          The number of countries maybe less important than which countries. International relations is a multi-player chess match where the chessboard is the playground of the great powers although the US is intent on being the sole player – kinda boring playing by yourself…

          What would be great is if you could assemble a table of changes in recognition in chronological order. Will be interesting to See if there is a pattern.

      • John Whitehot

        “Israel is reluctant to seize territory that is Arab as it puts at risk the Jewish majority that is policy to maintain Israel as the Jewish nation state”

        Wrong.

        Israel has been conducting a concerted policy of ethnic cleansing, with the help of the US and much of the west since early 2000s.

        The fact that most people fail to see it, because most medias are controlled by jews, and because it’s being done carefully over a long span of time doesn’t make it any less than it is.

        They failed though, because the other half of the world started resisting. They have their own medias, which everybody can access, their military power and are economically resilient to all the means jewish finance has at disposal.

        Their histery in trying to suppress social media users which show a different reality of their medias is good evidence of the above.

        • S Melanson

          Indeed Israel is busy doing that in the territories it occupies but it is such a handful already they do not want to occupy further territory with high Arab population. I think most people see the Israeli methods but are brainwashed to accept it as justified which is quite an accomplishment considering the hugely lopsided brutality.. The Israelis hardly make any effort to hide their brutal methods which makes it all the more intriguing they get away with so much. But those days are numbered.

          You are right that resistance is growing and proving effective. Israel and the US are being increasingly held to account and it is good for everyone this is happening. A day of reckoning is coming when Israel will be challenged by the axis of resistance in the Golan. That will be a dangerous day for all.

        It is misleading to think of Israel as an exclusively pragmatic state, in this it is distinguished from the Nazism which occupied Eastern Europe due to the German need for agricultural land. In the Golan there is water and even oil, of course, but Sharon spoke of Israel reigning over Judea, Galilee and Samaria, the orthodox religious political parties openly declare that they want to rebuild the Temple of Jerusalem and the American Christian Zionists like Pompey and Pence consider Trump a prophet sent by God to Israel. The UN solution with two states was enough, today fraudulently rejected by the Netanyahu rais to guarantee peace, not the two million deaths of Iraq, Lybia, Syria and still the request for destruction of Iran. Israel does not follow international law, but the Talmud which says that the chosen people should not follow laws like normal nations and the America of the Jewish New American Century is likewise Talmudic and outlawed. Pragmatic in these two states is the evidence of a design, seasoned with messianism, for world domination. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/357f8fe2b4fb5bfe99bb608fdfde48a932d6ed40d7a2c4b15687d8f1a2c39f7b.jpg

        ”Israeli policy is understandable.” Its called hasbara, and its understandable to the simpleminded. Nazi policy was also understandable to the Germans, but not the Jewish. Same goes for Zionist policy, understandable to Jewish but not Palestinians and Arabs.

        • S Melanson

          When I say understandable, I do not mean Israeli actions and policies are justified. I am saying that if you understand Israeli doctrine and the underlying motivations you can make sense of why Israel does what it does which allows for predicting future actions.

    The Syria war would end much sooner if Iraq would stop fueling it by allowing it’s land and airspace to be used by the US in support of their illegal occupation of NE Syria, and propping up the Kurdish separatists.

      You could ask :)

  • Jens Holm

    Wetsrens should build those connections, and they will work fast. The same goes for all the anciant oildrilling, where normal modern high tech can take 3-5 times more upo in wells , which You are learned as “DRY”.

    Dry for You, but then off course we will be blamed stealing from incompetente clumpsyheads. Some here below even write we need drops of Syrian oil as if we only have none oil and scooters only.

    Its like reading the old days of the cars here, where they were not allowed to drive faster then the horses.

    No relevant debate about it as well, for Fokus is about USA and Zionists and what we do ignoring that Assads has hardly done anything but grapping oiland gas from the reats of the Syrians. People even write Kurds are not Syrians, but if so,You morons should go back to Syria and leave Aleppo and Raqqa provinces as well.

    The past 10, 20 years of the Axis has been fighting Rebels under the assumption that theyre bad and just like isis etc, but they are wrong assumptions that will backfire.

    As we see with the slow moving masses (the very people on this forum who repeat the common narrative that AlQaeda and Rebels are nato creations) are actually playing the pawn that nato wants, sectarian violence, Iran vs Turkey, Assad vs Muslim Brotherhood, but at least Russia has some clear head about this.

    The masses however, who successfully have transitioned to antizionism and the selfhating line (all westerners are cucks), still need to take the redpill, that clinging to the secular line is not goung to cut it.

    Case in point, the Middle East is Islamic and will stay that way, no matter how many leaders try to sell out that fact (by selling out to the secular or nationalist line).

    So the One Belt One Road is Good for everyone, it wont work if it brushes aside Rebels, who defacto control the sentiment of the people across the entire Silk Road. Case in point Afghanistan, not one cargo can get by without approval of Taliban which has nato at its knees over.

    Russia has said it wants a political solution for this very reason, Russia and China need the economic inflows as the primary engines behind the Axis, but isht you not, its Rebels who own the steering wheel, because Rebels decide what is good for the Middle East, and Russia and China are merely the business partners and propagators of Humanitarianism as they so often state.

    Russia and China will not pander to the same snake dealing ways of the zionists and nato, because The Axis does not and cannot afford to allow any snakes in. And again to brush aside Rebels from the equation will be the downfall of not only nato and zionism, but the Axis itself.

    The north americunts on this forum, are already ratcheting up the elimination of Rebels as terrorist wahabi etc, serving as a lolipop for Iran Russia and Syria to take. Assad is also this lolipop, but it will only break his teeth, because it will break the very foundations he is based on, whether Alawi, Shia, or even Sunni as he claims.

    There are many good things about Secularism but secularism especially as an excuse will serve as a poison to the Axis. Case in point rouhani who failed to win over europe who tossed him out like an unwanted whore, seven or so years lost for pandering to europe. And sure sdf cleared out isis, but literally replaced it with nato bases across North Syria, another bad move by the Axis because Syria is now also surrounded by nato, further dividing Iraq from Syria and Turkey from Syria. And with al tanf trying to connect with sdf, will become another of the kike netanyahus moves to divide us.

    So the Axis should think carefully about Taliban and Rebels as the most critical part of the Axis and everyones hopes and dreams for the Silk Road. If Taliban or Rebels smell any sort of indecency in The Axis, it will destroy both nato and the Axis itself. How do I know? Because Rebels are the Street, that Bruce Lee so advised to never bet against.

    Completing infrastructure in a hostile environment is not recommended. Rail lines are fixed targets and vulnerable, especially with US and friends in Eastern Syria that puts them in the thick of such infrastructure building. Syria and Iraq both need to be secured and alliances settled before major investment. By settled I refer to which bed will Turkey sleep – the playing of both sides in military purchases is ongoing but how long will Erdogan continue this? Was Turkey promised Syrian land in a behind the scenes deal? It seems that way to me.

    On September 17, 2018 an internal shift in power relations took place with Shoigu taking the drivers seat from Putin. The IL-20 incident between nuclear armed Israel and Russia was dangerous enough but Israel’s very slow realization of the shift in Russian policy to decidedly anti-Israel while power relations were in flux amplified the danger and most, myself included, did not fully appreciate this at the time. I have been following events and see Putin steadily reasserting his authority. This makes for very volatile situation in Russia and this has been the case for many years and is reflected in the schizophrenic foreign policy the past few years.

    In some ways Russian policies are like the US in their contradictions although the US is like a comic tragedy written by a group of nihilistic surrealists needing some entertaining theatre to dispel their bouts of existential depression.

    Whatever one may think of Putin and Shoigu, both are great men that have elevated Russia’s international stature and this cannot be taken away. I hope they find a way to move forward without tearing Russia down or triggering global war which seems to be the US project and they got the Armageddon dream teal – Bolton and Pompeo.

    Lastly, do not sacrifice your values and your allies to try to achieve longer term goals. You may find it was your allies and values that brought you to a place where your goals were attainable and this will ultimately doom your plans as Toyota found out when they sacrificed quality and safety to achieve number one global car producer – the reason they could achieve number one was the reputation for quality and safety which they sacrificed. Toyota learned their lesson quickly and there are parallels to learn from.

    And since Toyota learned, they were in a position to supply the Coalition many many Toyota’s for Houthi target practice for never ending orders for Toyota’s to replace the many blown up Toyotas. So successful, Toyota was declared winner of the war in Yemen. The Coalition, with no other contender anywhere close, won the Nobel Prize for Incompetence… well earned. The Houthis, well they transcend politics and won the hearts and gratitude of the people of all nations. Putin please rethink Russia’s policy towards the Arabia Peninsula. Do not underestimate soft power, it is ultimately the strongest form of power and I am speaking from experience.

    Thats no nightmare project for Israel as well as USA.

    If anything its much like unrealistic science fiction. The planes seemes to be normal planning for the future, whcih has nothing to do with Israel and USA.

    The nextt step is if things are correct descriebed and good planes. the 97% finished is slow train of the worst ancient time model. By that the tranport capasity is very low unless there was a lot to tranport. There is not.

    The only main need is oil by pipeline. Fine to have a local train for heavy tranportation now and then HEAVY NOW and THEN. but local…

    That has nothing to do with Iran, Israel and USA.

    Most likely it could make much sense to make a good motorway south of Raqqa south of DEZ and by Iraq to Mosul. Syria do have a good one in South as well as the EL Tanf Crossing.

    Its of no use having very good transportation unless, You have nothing to transport.

  • Pemba Sherpa

    Iran is the only power stopping Israel from stealing more lands from its neighbouring countries and that is the source of major major butthurt for Israel LOL

  • John Whitehot

    Everytime Israel has fought with Hezbollah, it got whooped badly, something that isn’t restricted to the 2006 invasion of Lebanon, but goes back in time several years, when the Israeli army had to hastily retreat from southern Lebanon (which occupied).

    Now, the “nightmare” is valid only if zionazis decided to shamelessly landgrab the areas bordering Israel, to keep up with their agenda to migrate all the jews around the world to Israel.

    Neither Iran, or Syria, or Hezbollah are planning any attack on Israel, which would give it pretext to start an escalation and to involve the US in it.

    Besides, the primary reason ISIS was created, is this – to destroy Syrian state, and then be “defeated” by the “legitimate” opposition, so that Israel could annex the Golan and other parts of the country.

    The second step would had been Lebanon.

    For how things have went, Israel now has to either give up, or start and fight its wars by itself (and after 2006 no doubt they are not that keen on it).

  • hvaiallverden

    Yeah, one thing is the level of sniveling drivel delivered by an massive pack of TrumpTards but to the try to explain why some of us have an dvindeling trust in Putin, everytime, Russia, every attack, every time the Russians back stabb the Syrians, you loose friends, and above all, credibility and trust, after reading an massive amount of “briliant” Russian 24 Dim Chess, I cant see anything that an shameless lying Putin continuing to undermine the Russian stand by spitt liking and butt cheek spreading infront of the Tribe, its not easy to digest that bullshit the Russians are feeding us when Putin throws everything into the bin, by been an traitore and as far I an reading, just as Trump, an greedy little POS.

    I even regret I was that naive to even consider Russians to be trustwurthy, they are not.
    Yup, Good bye Russia, it took them just an centry to rape you drunkards twice, huh, and somehow we are suposedly to belive Russians have high IQ, yeah, where?, huh, where the sun dont shine, highly lightly, like the Moronikans, their brains are just liqufyed manure, PC-infested to oblivion.
    I dont even read much RT or others anymore, the tribal conections and perseptions are way to easy to spot, they are run from ISISrael.
    Why do you think Russian Gov. banned docs, from the fake “partiot war” to AGW, to even think Russia is an alternative is 100% delutional, its just an mafia run shithole, like Moronistan.
    Nope, if the Arab nations are going to survive the coming century, there is only one way forward, only one way that is sustainable, and the only way to survive as an region and people, is to Unite, until that happens I leave you with no hope Arabs.

    And thats why Russia is backing the terror state ISISrael, its just bizzenizze, nothing personal, right Russia.

    Its not much more to say.
    I could go deeper but dont bother, the truth is in the actions, not words.

    Watch ISISrael do whatever they want, Russian will just do as always, what the Tribesmen want and Putin is confriming if by the despicable crawling infront of them like pety whores, stupid Russians.
    After the Russians have spitted everyody in the face, I have only contempt left, yeah, loud mouthed drunkards and crucks.

    Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.

    peace

  • Sukhoi

    Heirarchy of power/control of the American People (Starting from Top to Bottom)
    -Rothschilds
    -Israeli politicians/elite
    -Mossad
    -CIA
    -Israeli Lobby
    -Wall Street
    -Congress
    -president
    -media
    -The American People

    if you look at these levels and relate it to world events since the mid 20th century till today, both military/economic/political events – it all makes sense. And ignorant americans truly believe wars are fought for “their” freedom and that they have “democracy”

    • S Melanson

      What is sad is if you add a list that is potential power/control, the people would occupy the first position.

  • El Mashi

    The only impediment for Iran to gain access to the Mediterranean Sea was Saddam Hussein. The Iranians are eternally grateful to USrael for conclusion of the Iran Iraq war in Iran’s favor. Anyway, the Zionists need boogeyman Iran to beat Israelis into fear to control them.

  • Jim Prendergast

    U.S. and Israel have blown the World Trade Center and $12Billion. What more can they do?

    • verner

      world trade center – yeah likely mossad and the middle east wars including afghanistan more than a trillion bucks, or more than 1000 billion bucks.but all they need to do, the criminally insane and corrupt junta in washington dc, is to print more money and who could care with the national debt in excess of 22000 billion bucks. just think about it, if that money had been spent at home rather than on the squatters and their dream of being the dominating land in the middle east, the american infrastructure would have been in good shape and all had been hunky dory. but no still crumbling and coming to pieces, morlly and physically.

      only a humongous veterans demonstration in washington dc of say 1.5 to 3 million battle trained veterans can wrestle back the powers from the criminally insane and corrupt junta in washington dc.
      no way the standing army or the national guard would turn the guns on demonstrating veterans.

      • Jim Prendergast

        You are right. A march across the country to the capital. It worked for the Vietnam/Cambodia/Laos conflict.
        Which part of the U.S. Government is more powerful: the Press or the Deep State?
