Russia Sends More Tank Landing Ships, Military Aircraft To Syria

7 posts in this topic

On Wednesday, Jean-Claude Juncker unveiled Europe’s preliminary “plan” to try and cope with the massive influx of asylum seekers fleeing the violence in war-torn Syria.

Brussels’ approach to the crisis will reportedly involve a list of so-called “safe countries of origin.” As WSJ reported earlier today, migrants from those countries who are denied asylum will be subject to fast-track repatriation.” Here’s what we said about the proposed “safe” countries list:

Because there are “safe” countries of origin that must mean there’s a list of “unsafe” countries of origin as well, and we can only assume that list includes Syria, which Europe will make safer by bombing it. 

That was a reference to reports out earlier this week that suggested French President Francois Hollande’s response to Europe’s biggest refugee crisis since World War II would involve bombing the very place from which the refugees are fleeing. Here’s what Bloomberg (and Hollande himself) said on Monday:

Hollande is seeking a response to Europe’s biggest refugee crisis since World War II in tune with public opinion that remains largely hostile to a massive increase in immigration.

“I’ve asked the minister of defense to begin reconnaissance flights over Syria from tomorrow that would allow for strikes against the Islamic State,” Hollande said at a press conference in Paris on Monday. Hollande, who ruled out sending troops, said Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad is an impediment to peace in the country.

In many ways, this looks like a replay of the infamous YouTube chemical weapons videos which were supposed to serve as the original pretext for Western strikes on the Assad regime. That is, the US and its allies are determined to find the right mix of propaganda to justify a ground incursion and this time around, that mix will apparently include heart-wrenching pictures of migrants. As we said on Tuesday, the real tragedy here is that now, the pitiable plight of Syria’s beleaguered masses will be used as an excuse to cause them still more pain and suffering.

Well sure enough, on Wednesday, we got still more evidence that Western Europe is set to join the US and Turkey (and soon Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Qatar) in conducting bombing raids in Syria. Here’s WSJ:

Faced with a burgeoning refugee crisis in Europe sparked by global extremism, U.S. and European officials said Tuesday there is a growing consensus that the multinational military campaign against Islamic State must focus more on targeting the group’s nerve centers in Syria.

Any takers on what Russia is doing with a military buildup in Syria?

Remember the report about #WINNING! 50 SPIES SAY REPORTS ON ISIS ARE BEING ALTERED BY HIGHER UPS TO MAKE THINGS APPEAR ROSY (somewhere on this board there is a thread about it, I went back 7 pages and didn't find it though, anyhow)

Putin’s spokesman knows nothing about Russia’s increased military presence in Syria

Lawmaker seeks defense ministry's explanation over reports on Russian troops in Syria

Moscow calls media reports about its position on Syria "fabrications and falsifications"

you can read all the above, then this one, the comments on it and the story is good Moscow calls media reports about its position on Syria fabrications and falsifications (all the above posted to verify content, in case I missed something as VT by its owner is 70% false info (but on not all things). I find this report to be pretty good with the comments by VT.
