NEO – Syria, A Storm is Coming


    By Gordon Duff and New Eastern Outlook, Moscow

    War is coming in Syria. The decision has been made, the targets are outlined. Syria has had enough. The fake color revolution has done more than fail, it has united Syrians in rage, their homes destroyed, their factories looted, their heritage peddled in auction houses in London and New York and now over 2 million Syrian refugees held hostage by the United States.

    War is coming.

    Israel’s bombing campaign won’t stop it. The targets across Israel have been outlined, the ammonia warehouses in Haifa, the “Valley of Technology” and Israel’s military industries. All will be gone in the first salvo with 200 Iskander M missiles easily evading the “Iron Dome” whose command centers will fall in a prelude.

    Sources in Syria say hundreds of launchers, protected by BUK, PantirS and S300 defenses are out of Israel’s reach. Syrian scientists, many with years of experience in Russia’s most advanced missile development programs, may well have created even more surprises.

    Netanyahu has kept this from his people. Thousands of Israelis will die in the first minutes. Israel’s nuclear capability is useless, Russia has long informed them that this is a “red line.”

    Syria expects to be hit, mass bombing, Israel has plenty of practice bombing civilians. Syria is prepared for death, they have had 8 years of death at the hands of the Takfiris and their American and Israeli “prostitutes” as Dr. Bassam Barakat, a Russian trained physician living in Damascus states clearly.

    “The Americans have experience, in Lebanon in the 1980s, in Iraq. When the convoys of coffins begin to go to Washington as happened during the American occupation of Iraq, America will learn the price of its backing of Israel’s attacks on Syria.

    The rules of the game and the rules of engagement with Syria have changed.

    What will happen is clear, that unless Israel begins immediate diplomatic moves to quell the fires it has ignited across Syria, a war the likes of which Israel has not imagined will descend on the Israeli people who have been lied to by their leaders.

    Israel is vulnerable.

    That war may destroy us all, but the Syrian people will survive. However, we seriously doubt that Israel can say the same thing. A storm is coming.”

    With the spring of 2019, lines are forming in Damascus, no heat, no fuel for vehicles, intermittent electricity, many foods unavailable, a nation seemingly on its knees due to American and Israeli efforts to starve the people of Syria.

    The United States is occupying 35% of Syria and has given that land to Kurdish separatists for them to share with remaining ISIS units that have been largely ignored by the US and its “coalition” allies in now almost 4 years of phony war.

    The ethnically Arab lands given to the Kurdish rebels is the breadbasket of the Middle East along with rich oil and gas fields. Similarly, Idlib province, occupied exclusively by al Qaeda under US guidance, is receiving daily arms convoys of new American weapons.

    In Southern Syria, the US has set up a training facility adjacent to Rukban, the vast refugee camp where America blocks international observers and also blocks aid convoys. The US is afraid its recruiting and training efforts might well be exposed, efforts that go on daily with endless weapons and supplies while children, only a few short yards away starve at the rate of nearly a dozen a day.

    Syria is being forced to go to war and Trump’s move to give Golan to Israel has made war a certainty. The only question is when and the answer is also unexpected, sooner than anyone might guess.

    We know this, Syria has asked Russia to inform the US that Syria expects the US to withdraw from all territories East of the Euphrates.

    Syria has also informed Russia that American air power will no longer be allowed to operate inside Syria and that all agreements that may have held during the war on ISIS are over. This means that American aircraft may be fired on.

    Syria has demanded the immediate withdrawal of all non-Syria military forces from the governates of Deir al’Zour, Raqqa and Hasaka, for the ISIS training facilities to be closed, for the mercenaries to be sent home, the poison gas production facilities to be closed and the command centers with their Saudi, Qatari and Israeli advisors to empty.

    One might ask why the strong talk from a nation that is supposed to be on its knees? Let’s look at the record.

    America is now negotiating with the Taliban, leaving Afghanistan with its tail between its legs as it had Vietnam some 5 decades ago.

    The situation in Iraq is worse, some 5 thousand Americans still think they are occupying that nation while rage is stirring there also. Iraq knows it was nearly destroyed by the Takfiris with full complicity of Washington and Tel Aviv, a quarter of a million Iraqis dead and millions lived in brutal slavery for years.

    Tens of billions in Iraqi oil was stolen while the profits lined American pockets.

    It isn’t hard for the world to see what America is about. America is falling apart, 60% of its revenue goes to a military long tired of war, long tired of losing, a military that protects nothing and threatens everything.

    When the war comes, and war is coming, it will come in Iraq, it will come in Iran, and American forces around the world will be seen as the people of Syria and Iraq see them, as parasites.

    The language here is the language of anger, much of it translated from Arabic. Israel and America will ignore it.

    Seldom has anything been as clear as the situation inside Syria. It cannot be said enough, “8 years of war,” and it needs to be said over and over, ethnic cleansing, gas attacks, mass kidnappings, institutionalized rape, theft on an unimagined scale.

    The enemy, and this was never a civil war, it was something unique, the enemy was and is world organized crime as I pointed out in Damascus on that morning in December 2014. A bill is due and the nations that allowed themselves to submit to criminal rule will learn lessons a thousand times worse than 9/11.

    1. Thanks for this Mr Gordon. May i ask what is actually Russia’s stand on this matter? I hope Mr. Putin gets to show his true colors on this particular matter.

    2. Yet another great article, and both my wife and I earnestly hope, that what has been articulated is true and those bastards will get exactly, with compunded interest what they so richly deserve. Sooner rather than later.

    3. Good, honest article and comments.
      Question is, do the bankers need a huge war to stay out of jail? I suggest they don’t, yet, from all the signs, but probably they will, in the not-too-distant future, and that is when it will happen. At this stage, I think the bankers and M.I. warmongers need to keep the big one in reserve.

      • The US military is a mercenary outfit. It goes to war not in defense of the homeland but to do the bidding or the bankers, corporates and other interests. The Syrians, Iranians, Russians, Chinese, etc. will fight for their nation and people.

    4. It’s all about the Benjamins’, land grabbing, protecting their international compound interest, fiat currency, Ponzi scheme.
      Syria must have accumulated a sizable store of missiles, and they’re going to need them. Israel’s weak spot is their civilian population. Even more so than the US the Jews have a low threshold for civilian deaths. I expect civilian populations to be hit including those in the Golan Heights.
      when Syria finally responds in kind to Israeli attacks, the response must be overwhelming and must come in on rapid waves. Iran can’t sit back and watch, waiting for their territory to be hit. It must join at the start and clean the Straights of any threat. What will Iraq do? Now that’s a question. If American assets in Iraq are attacked on a very wide scale to complicate America’s job and consume resources that otherwise would be spent on Syria. I expect Russia to take a step back from Syria in order to stay out of it. But, if a Russian base is hit she will be in the fray with both feet. So Russia may withdraw from Syria completely The nukes will fly from the West right from the beginning so it’s anyone’s guess how far this goes.
      Will it happen? What does Syria and Iran have to lose. When you’re being dealt a slow death what do you do? Roll over and die. Absolutely not.

    5. There are bigger players out there that will not want to have this kind of war and are essential for Syria’s preservation. Russia and Iran. They will never attack first, not because they are weak or without strategy but because they are consistent to their doctrines and respect UN and international law (the very UN and law US and UK invented and never obeyed). Russia’s role alone in Syria stabilized the country against multiple superpower international alliances. But I agree with the author here, there will be falling apart of this international gangsterism and probably more false flags. US doesn’t need to have bags of corpses for losing, for it to lose big it only needs to lose its alleged allies, namely NATO toy babies. That’s why they are always frantic about some strategically unimportant regions having to have part in NATO gangsterism.

    6. Facing the truth is hard, very hard – some times even impossible. Now it looks like the Syrians have surmounted that obstacle. Very courageous!

    7. Syria is for real what New Hampshire only pretends, or is too stupid to recognize: “Live free or die!”

    8. Syria’s cause is just, and I know VT does’t wish ill to American armed forces, but if they come home in body bags, defending the evil Zionists, and their corrupt weaponized monetary system, so be it. I won’t shed a tear for the criminal empire that ignorant, lazy Americans have allowed to manifest.
