WHY RUSSIA IS FOR ASSAD AND U.S. FOR ISIS
Call it conspiracy theory if you like, But there is overwhelming evidence in the Internet that the CIA-MI5-Mossad smuggled arms from Libya into Syria via Turkey when Gaddafi fell to arm ISIS. (Sources – zerohedge.com, gulf-daily-news.com, inquirer.net, russia-insider.com, henrymakow.com, henrymakow.com/2).
What was the motive of the US-UK-Israel? They wanted a Sunni invasion by ISIS of Shiite Syria, take over the Shiite civil war, get rid of Assad and install a Sunni regime. By doing so, Shiite Iran will be the next to fall. Iran is the ultimate goal.
Russia knows this. They support Assad even though he is vicious and unpopular because he is Shiite. A Shiite Syria protects Shiite Iran. Iran is non-negotiable to Russia because it is the buffer zone. If it falls, the West inches closer to the Russian border, and can install ‘defensive’ missiles. Russia has a neurotic fear of US encirclement. It will go to war to protect Iran. Thus, the invasion of Iran may trigger World War III. The US knows this but continues in its brinkmanship because Iran’s gas resources, one of the largest worldwide, is a prize catch. It is ultimately an energy war.
Either the US is pretending to bomb ISIS or it has changed its mind to support it when it evolved into a vicious monster. US bombings of ISIS for an entire year had less results than Russian bombings for two weeks. After the Paris carnage, the US can no longer support ISIS, but they still want Assad out. A US-Russia coalition against ISIS is impossible because the US wants Assad out and Russia wants him in. When Assad dies, there will be a grapple between Sunni and Shiite forces to take over. Whoever wins determines the destiny of Syria, Iran, and World War III. email@example.com
PARIS CARNAGE AND FRENCH COLONIZATION
To this day, France has continued the intense colonization of Africa, imposing colonial taxes on 14 countries. When Guinea decided to seek independence from France in 1958, France destroyed everything before she left – schools, farm equipment, tractors, even cows and horses, colonial buildings, cars, books, medicine. Food was burned or poisoned in warehouses. Everything France invested on to be a colonizer, who would get back its worth a hundred fold, was destroyed. The last step was the murder of advocates of independence. It was a clear signal to the other African colonies. Sekou Toure of Guinea screamed, “We prefer freedom in poverty to opulence in slavery.
Why speak of France’s sins at her moment of mourning and anger? Is this not rubbing salt on wounds? France’s sin was in the past and it was in Africa and through another set of rulers. Why relate it to the Paris carnage today? It is because of the social character of sin, which is karmic. The innocent suffer from the sins of others, like children mutilated by broken homes. Good begets good. Evil begets evil. Did France’s social sins in Africa result in the Paris carnage? Yes, if we consider karma, not cause and effect.
The same is true of US drones killing civilians in Afghanistan or Russian warplanes killing innocent Turkmen. All these are related to terrorist bombings in Madrid, Paris, London, and to 9/11. When Bin Laden was killed, it was not a victory because a thousand more vicious terrorists emerged. firstname.lastname@example.org

GLOBAL POWER BALANCE YIELDS STABILITY Political scientists say that if one force (US) monopolizes global power, there will be instability. There must be balance from lesser powers (Russia, China) to challenge that force, which somehow yields stability. Global power corrupts, and absolute global power corrupts absolutely. This principle is related to flashpoints in the Middle East and South China Sea. Alliances are critical (UK, EU, Israel, Sunni nations, for the US) and (Iran, Shiite nations for Russia-China tandem) in a complex broth. Once they polarize, World War III is around the corner. email@example.com
