News broke Wednesday that Russia began air operations in Syria at the request of Syrian dictator Bashar al Assad. The Russians reportedly gave Washington a one-hour notice of the strikes, which some said were directed at ISIS. They also made it clear that the Obama regime was not to interfere.
It turns out, however, that the strikes weren’t targeting ISIS, but forces aligned against Assad.
In the wake of Barack Obama’s diplomatically finalized nuclear deal with Iran, the ayatollahs have found themselves with even deeper pockets then they already have.
With Iran already perched atop a veritable ocean of oil, the ayatollahs calling the shots in the Tehran-government now have the international green light to go forward with not only a nuclear program, but thanks to Barack Obama and John Kerry, they will soon have access to well over a tenth of a trillion American dollars.
With it already verified by numerous media sources world-wide that Russian Naval Infantry is already ashore in Syria, it’s now being reported that the Chinese have a mini-armada already dropping anchor in a Syrian port.
And as being reported, Beijing is far from done beefing up its presence in the Mediterranean Sea, formerly known in naval circles as an American Lake. Continue reading →
While the American media focuses in on the Trump vs. Fiorina verbal zinger-fest with laser-like precision, foreign news services are picking up the Yankee slack on reporting of the Russian military build-up in the Middle East.
As reported by Great Britain’s The Guardian and Israel’s military-centric new media portal DEBKAfile, both on Sept. 17, 2015, and also The Manila Times on Sept. 16, 2015, Russian Naval Infantry (Marines) have left their coastal bases and heading for a showdown with the Islamic jihadists situated further inland.

While most in the American media have essentially turned a blind eye to the Russians flexing their military muscle in Syria, even the handful that have acknowledged the Russian build-up as little more that the expansion of a fairly obscure airstrip on the Syrian coast.
And with that expansion comes a handful of Russian Marines for base security and a handful of air defense missiles.
As every armchair historian knows, in 1914 a set of second and third rate nations drew the globe’s superpowers into the First World War.
Closer to present day, Western Asia is a similar tangle of treaties and mutual defense pacts in which a single amateurish diplomatic decision or military misstep could conceivably result in a much, much wider war.
In what some are calling yet another diplomatic thumb directly in the eye of Barack Obama, Iranian Marines and special forces have reportedly landed in Syria to join with the relative handful of Russian Naval Infantry already in-country to aid the regime’s strongman retain power.
As reported by Mark Rivett-Carnac of the Reuters news service via Time magazine, and also by Johnlee Varghese of the International Business Times (IBT) India edition, both on Sept. 11, 2015, a mixed force of approximately 1,000 Iranian Marines and members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps are within a figurative stone’s throw from the roughly 100 Russian Naval Infantry (Marines) who recently touched down in the war-torn nation.
There are certain things that all Corps of Marines have in common regardless of nationality.
Case in point would be one of the official functions of the American Marine Corps: “for service with the fleet in the seizure or defense of advanced naval bases…”
With a flurry of reports coming out of the eastern Mediterranean hitting the news wires by the moment, it certainly appears that the Russian Marines have the same duties as their American counterparts. Continue reading →
On March 2, Barack Hussein Obama released a report that reveals a plan to take over state and local policing- in one of those backhanded ‘Progressive’ actions. Using Ferguson, Missouri as the catalyst for his move, he is using verbiage like “opportunity,’ and ‘transform’ to make state and local policing agencies to do things his way.
“We have a great opportunity… to really transform how we think about community law enforcement relations. We need to seize that opportunity… this is something that I’m going to stay very focused on in the months to come… I expect our friends in the media to really focus on what’s in this report and pay attention to it.” Obama
