Libya 2.0? West demands Syria no-fly zone. Retaliation? Russian Kalibr Missiles strike US Intel Center

West demands Syria no-fly zone, but only for Russians & Syrians

Yes, we have heard and seen this before. Remember what that fake no-fly zone did to Libya? Remember Qaddafi?

They tried to unseat Syria’s Bashar Al Assad in all ways possible: from accusations of chemical weapons, threats to bomb, arming ISIL and other terrorist groups, to insistence that ‘Assad must go.’ Nothing worked. Now they want once again to try to pull the same number they once did in Libya. Is anyone dumb enough to fall for it yet again?

A typical MO of a dying empire: they are so decadent, so stuck in the their imaginary ‘America is exceptional’ little world that they are unable to assess the reality on the ground. They don’t understand that the ship has sailed.

Listen to what Germany’s PM Frank-Walter Steinmeier and US Secretary of State John Kerry say at the UN: ‘We need no-fly zone.’ Yes, echoes a US general, we agree to a no-fly zone: Russian and Syrian airforces must be grounded, but only them; our jets must continue flying.

Incidentally, listen carefully to how Kerry phrases his statement. He insists on temporarily grounding of all aircraft over Syria. Of course, we all know what happened in Libya after ‘all’ aircraft was supposedly grounded: US and allies came in and began bombing Qaddafi’s forces, followed by the ISIL takeover of the country with subsequent horrid death by Qaddafi himself.

Therefore, certainly no one will fall for this again. However, in the run up to my new ESR11: THE IMPORTANCE OF 2016 RUSSIAN ELECTIONS (to be released tomorrow 9/24), I want to emphasize one point! Among other crucial things, in ESR11 I discuss the Syria developments and US/West bombing of the Syrian army. In this regard I provide my take on the shifting situation within the US elites. In the FREE Part 1 of the report you’ll see me talk about a rift within US elites, as well as attempts by Kerry to play his own game. Check it out!

BREAKING NEWS! Retaliation for Syrian army’s bombing? Did Russia strike joint US/Israel/West/Turkey Intelligence Center in Aleppo?

Text in Russian:

Published on Sep 23, 2016

Согласно сообщению информационного агентства Fars News, “российские военные корабли выпустили три ракеты “Калибр” по иностранному офицерскому координационному оперативному центру в районе Дар Эзза (Dar Ezza), убив 30 израильских и западных офицеров”. Военные США вместе с союзниками создали полевой “Оперативный центр” (Field Operations Room) в районе Алеппо, укомплектованный личным составом разведывательных служб. В нем действовали сотрудники разведок США, Британии, Израиля, Турции, Саудовской Аравии и Катара. Профессор экономики Оттавского университета, основатель и директор Центра изучения глобализации (Канада) Мишель Хосудовский пояснил, что Российская сторона нанесла удар по разведывательному объекту США непосредственно после воздушных ударов ВВС США по вооруженным силам Сирии в районе Дейр-эз-Зор в поддержку террористов ИГИЛ. Оперативный центр находился в западной части провинции Алеппо в районе горы Саман, где имеется много древних пещер. Регион расположен в глубине горной цепи. Центр в регионе Алеппо использовался для координирования действий на земле с разведывательными действиями беспилотников и для нанесения ударов с воздуха. Согласно сообщению агентства Fars, личный состав разведывательных служб участвовал также в планировании и осуществлении нападения ВВС США на сирийских вооруженных сил (Syrian SAA forces), которое было проведено непосредственно после заключения женевского соглашения о перемирии.

 

My English summary translation:

According to Fars News agency, Russian military ships launched three Kalibr cruise missiles; the strike hit the Dar Ezza joint intelligence coordination center for the US coalition, killing 30 Israeli and Western officers. The center, aka, Field Operations Room near Aleppo is staffed with officers from US, Turkey, UK, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Qatar. Canadian researcher Michel Chossudovsky says that the center was hit after US coalition forces bombed the Syrian army. The intelligence center in question provided intelligence and played a leading role in making the bombing happen.

Incidentally, in tomorrow’s ESR11, I will explain why the US attack on Syrian army was no accident and why it happened right before Russian Elections of September 18!

What’s the right term: Isis vs. ISIS vs. ISIL vs. IS? Is Assad Good or Evil?

I am pleased to announce that I am starting a new TESTIMONIALS page on LadaRay.info

The best testimonials & reviews re. ESRs, FT articles and more, will be posted on this page: LINK.

Here is one such testimonial/review for ESR13: ERDOGAN’S WAR, which I greatly appreciate:

  1. I want to thank you for taking time to present your insight and worldly view in such a clear, concise manner. I am a Pennsylvania (USA) and as our nation wakes up and realizes the extent to which we have been lied to and manipulated, your voice presents the story the rest of the world already knows. You should be nominated for the Nobel Peace prize for fostering understanding (not that I don’t now know how rigged all these accolades truly are). At a bare minimum your are an Ambassador of Peace and Understanding to our world. Thank you again. Teresa D. Preston

New Ask Lada episode based on reader feedback to Lada Ray’s 

Earth Shift Report 13: ERDOGAN’S WAR

  1. These ESRs just get better and better. Thirteen is definitely a smart bomb, as in bombshell report. This is really good intel and presented in a cogent and highly interesting manner. I trust Erdogan as far as I can throw him but I’m confident that Putin will handle him just fine.
    Now we wait for the next set of dirty tricks from the West. I bet the coding on those nukes at Incirlic is changing every 24 hours now. So… I want to know more about Syria… especially the presidente and his beautiful wife. Are they bad guys or are they doing good for Syria like Qaddafi was doing for Libya? Thanks, Lada; super job on this report.

Lada’s response

  • US nukes in Turkey 

    Yes, it is becoming dangerous to keep US nukes in Turkey, that’s why Erdogan has so much leverage over US & NATO, which I expect him to use. He’ll be playing double game, as I explained in ESR13. Basically, US/NATO are his hostages and this will eventually end badly. Definitely expect more events in Turkey, such as terror acts, Kurds’ uprisings, etc. But Erdogan isn’t a dummy. If provoked, he’ll retaliate vs. US/NATO, as he demonstrated already. Eventually this will lead to breakup. For now, it’ll continue weakening and eroding NATO.

    Who is Assad; is he good or evil?

    Every country deserves its president. Not everything had been smooth in the past, and the word ‘tyrant’ sounded now and then in regards to Assad’s father, Hafez al-Assad. There were accusations of supposed chemical attacks, ‘autocratic rule’ and ‘slaughter of the innocents’ against Hafez, and more recently, Bashar al-Assad, by ‘Syrian opposition.’ However, knowing who finances said ‘opposition,’ we should take anything they say with a giant rock of salt.

    There may have been tyrannical tendencies by Assad Sr. But Bashar al-Assad isn’t like his father; he is a pretty mild-mannered man, a physician by trade, who didn’t want to be at the helm of the country. Sounding strange for a Western or Russian ear, in the Middle East the term ‘president’ is in fact psychologically equated with a hereditary sultan. In such circumstances, shall we say, destiny called him to duty.

    I can tell you confidently that he was meant to be where he is. Assad is just what his country needs right now; he’s the only person capable of uniting Syria and its multi-national, multi-confessional population. He clearly enjoys a large majority support.

    The so-called opposition can only be this aggressive and this demanding that he should step down because US supports and encourages it. Take away US support and financing and the opposition won’t have nearly as much pull. That said, a certain amount of opposition and healthy criticism is good for any country, and should be present to keep powers that be in line.

    However, what’s happening in Syria is clearly foreign-induced, by entities whose interests are contrary to the interests of the people of Syria. Assad has some vicious Middle East neighbors, specifically Saudis and Qatar, who try to use weaknesses to arm those who oppose him; and of course there’s the US factor, bent on regional destabilization at all cost. Assad’s biggest crime is that he didn’t succumb to US/Qatar/Saudis pressure and maintained his sovereign, friendly to Russia and Iran, stance. For this he is being punished.

    If we knew nothing else about Assad, if we just knew that he didn’t succumb to threats or bribes of the US and Saudis/Qatar – that alone would be enough, in my opinion, to form a positive opinion of him.

    Considering he didn’t even want to be at the helm of the country, his steadfastness, presence of mind and quiet courage are phenomenal. And yes, his wife, Asma al-Assad, is very lovely; she is definitely the queen material – and I mean not by birth, but by her aura and poise. I believe she is the right person to stand by him, and from the energy I perceive, she is, in big part, the one who gives him courage to withstand the enormous pressure. They both have demonstrated that they are made of a lot sturdier and quality material than many anticipated.

    I had previously compared Assad to Qaddafi. The problem with Qaddafi is that he naively and short-sightedly believed he could bargain with the US/West. Assad never did. Another problem: Qaddafi failed to make friends and that was what in the end got him killed. Assad made sure he had some very serious friends, as Syrian events have shown. Much of Qaddafi’s problems apply to Saddam, who didn’t believe till last moment the West could begin a full-scale war against him. Incidentally, Russians warned Saddam, but he brushed these warnings aside! He also bet on the wrong horse. This is the crucial difference between Assad and the other two.

    Till recently, Turkey was among those who attacked Assad and demanded his resignation. But soon after August 9 Putin’s meeting with Erdogan, we’ll see a drastic turnaround in Turkey’s attitude towards Syria.

    Read about Assad and Syria in detail in ESR5: SYRIA GAME CHANGER, including the role and interests in Syria of US, Saudis, Qatar, Russia, Iran, Turkey and Israel. More Syria updates are in ESR7: TURKISH CONUNDRUM.  And of course, lots of Lada’s valuable intel, unique analysis and predictions in latest ESR13!

     

    Oli Gulliver

    Again an interesting journey into the realms of geopolitics, social psychology and the prediction of developments. You’re gifted with so many talents and a heartfelt sympathy for the common people, so I’m very thankful for your contributions and for your fighting on the right side. The coup in Turkey is explained by you in a convincing way.

    Btw, could you please substitute the term “ISIS” (it’s better to say Isil, IS, Daesh). “Isis” is an old Egyptian and Greece goddess. She was worshipped as the ideal mother and wife as well as the patroness of nature and magic. Words matter …

Lada’s response

I can certainly understand the indignation at the usage of ISIS, which sounds just like Isis. It reminds me how Hitler usurped Swastika, the beautiful ancient symbol of our sun/galaxy, as well as the word Arian, turning both evil. There are other similar cases in history.

I sympathize with the emotional response of those who follow the Isis worship. It seems doubly unfair that a word symbolizing the sacred feminine is seemingly usurped by an extremist anti-women’s rights, Islamist sect. Like others, I also emotionally dislike that such nice words have been tarnished by darkness.

However, in my geopolitical and multi-dimensional analysis I invite you to get beyond emotions and to the very core of the truth.

Words are just tools, much like a hammer is a tool; they are neutral. Hammer can be used to build a lovely home, or it can be misused to inflict bodily harm. Same with words.

Alas, dark entities and deeds may turn words evil that have been neutral, or formerly carried a positive meaning. Look how evil entities managed to turn the formerly lovely Ukraine into a terrorist state, making the word ‘Ukraine’ highly undesirable, and even hated. The very words ‘evil’ and ‘darkness’ did not originally carry any negative connotation. It were humans who assigned them such connotation to fill the gap within the third-dimensional reality of duality and contrast.

Therefore, rising above third-dimensional duality, ISIS is an abbreviation, not a word, and it is the most accurate term. It’s unfortunate that it coincides with the name of goddess Isis. ISIS means Islamic State of Iraq & Syria. 

IS – Islamic State – is not accurate since it may be confused with any random legitimate Islamic state on the planet, and I can see many objecting to that. Besides, it’s also what ISIS calls itself: why would you want to indulge the terrorists and call them their preferred name?

ISIL is equally inaccurate: it means Islamic State of Iraq & Levant. Levant is an outdated British colonial term, referring to the large territory, including Syria, Libya, Lebanon and Egypt. Hence, it refers to Western colonialism, plus, it implies the enlarged territory of ISIS. Instead of shrinking it, which should be everyone’s goal, ISIL assigns it more territory, in concurrence with USA’s goal in the Middle East. Therefore, ISIL is a subtle mind-manipulation, and so is IS.

You may have noticed that I usually qualify it by calling it ISIS/Daesh/Al Nusra, therefore there can be no mistake that I am NOT referring to the ancient goddess, but to the Islamist terrorism phenomenon.

Hope my comprehensive explanation is sufficient to put this issue to rest.

Afterthoughts + Announcements

The world continues going through a tectonic Earth Shift, and everything around us is accelerating. I can’t believe that it’s been barely three days since I published ESR13: ERDOGAN’S WAR! So much has happened since, and continues happening!

On August 9 Putin hosted Erdogan and scores of Turkish military, politicians & business people, who were eager to get back on track and begin making deals. Huge turnarounds in various spheres are already happening, big announcements are being made (at least by Turkish and Bulgarian sides) in regards to Turkish Stream/South Stream, NATO bases and US precarious position in Turkey, plus the new page in Russia-Turkey-Syria relations. As you’ve read in ESR13, just before Erdogan, Putin met with leaders of Azerbaijan and Iran. The next day after Erdogan, Putin received the president of Armenia. All these events, following each other in close proximity, are interconnected. New, just recently unimaginable, alliances are starting to materialize. As predicted in ESR13, all this is a huge win for Russia and a huge loss for the US.

I’ve promised you all an update on Erdogan – Putin St. Petersburg meeting, the surrounding events and their Earth Shifting consequences. Those who have purchased ESR13: ERDOGAN’S WAR will be able to read the update first: it’ll be posted as ADDENDUM at the bottom of the report this Saturday. Later, the update will appear as free article on FT.

As Erdogan and Putin were preparing to meet, Ukraine attempted to attack Crimea twice in 2-3 days. Fire was exchanged, Russian Federal Security officer and a serviceman were killed, and a number of trained Ukrainian terrorists, complete with explosives and terror equipment, were taken prisoner by FSB.

You may not be surprised to learn that this attack is connected to Erdogan’s visit. But connections are much wider than that. This attack has direct bearing on US presidential elections and Russian Duma elections in September. It also comes after Russian government has announced that Crimea would become part of a larger Federal District.

The implications of the attack are far-reaching. Minsk and Normandy negotiations formats are affected; LDNR (DPR/LPR) status may change in a very positive way – I’ll discuss that in the forthcoming report; and the near future of Ukraine may become even more unstable. Who is behind this desperate attack, which could have never succeeded, who benefits from it and who gave the order?

Meanwhile, a coup to unseat Poroshenko is brewing in Kiev. Will he survive it, and what happens if he doesn’t? Lots of questions and they demand answers. I’ve been planning a new ESR: CRIMEAN AGENDA, but it has been on back burner. This may be just the time to release it! Stay tuned for more info!

Last but not least! UK PM Theresa May and Vladimir Putin had a phone conversation, in which they agreed to a personal meeting. This is good news. The events following Brexit vote have been developing just as I predicted in ESR12: THE FUTURE OF THE EU. I’ve been meaning to release a follow-up, with a broader outreach. The working name for the new ESR is BREXIT DOMINO EFFECT. Stay tuned for details!

Raising Chi and Healing Syria: Gergiev Orchestra’s Classic Russian Music In Palmyra Ruins

New Ask Lada episode. Just wanted to respond in a little more detail to a Twitter question:

Was wondering your intuitive feelings on the event today with Russian orchestra? Very big.

I replied:

Classic concert, esp this level, restores hope, aka positive energy + raises Chi. Syria needs it. Positive music kills ISIS.

This is RT video of the Palmyra concert by Gergiev orchestra:

‘Praying for Palmyra’: Russian orchestra performs concert honoring victims of Syria war.

Renowned conductor Valery Gergiev is leading a concert in the ancient Syrian city of Palmyra to support the restoration of the UNESCO site and honor victims of the war. The city of Palmyra was devastated by Islamic State terrorists who occupied the site for some 10 months before it was liberated by Syrian troops with Russian air support.

Since on FT I have the luxury of much more space to properly respond, let me do so.

Having not have the chance to listen to the concert itself yet, I can assess its impact purely based on its energy signature and resonance.

First of all, any classic concert is awesome. Classic music, especially performed on such high level, carries enormous positive, creative and peaceful energy. This kind of energy heals wounds and restores health. It promotes peace and mutual understanding.

Said in a spiritual way, it raises Chi and creates a powerful positive energy signature. Positive energy is akin to a ray of bright light, which chases away the darkness and illuminates the truth. It stimulates healing and chases away the germs/dark entities. In this case the germ is ISIS (the terrorist organization, not the ancient goddess Isis, who has nothing to do with terrorism).

Please check out my Quantum Calibrations Scale for the energy levels of Joy and High Creation. I recommend you listen to audio/videos (vid No. 2) talking about these levels. (VIDEO 1: Life-threatening & Life-diminishing Calibrations  VIDEO 2: Life-affirming & Life-creating Calibrations). 

Syria has been through years of devastating war and discord, which was created by certain internal imbalances and injustices, distorted, stoked and amplified via aggressive foreign interference (US, EU, West as a whole, Saudis, Qatar, Turkey). The recent culmination of the Syria war was the liberation of a famous UNESCO World Heritage site, the ancient Palmyra, from the hands of terrorists. Palmyra, a globally protected cultural gem, suffered huge damage as a result of ISIS terrorists and Turkish smugglers destroying and looting many of its treasures.

Of course, the turnaround in Syria, the hope for peace and reconciliation became possible only after Russia and Putin made a courageous step of sending its airforce and navy. If not for Russia, the war would still be going from bad to worse. This step by Russia also forced US – the power mostly behind ISIS, Al Nusra and their regional sponsors – to abandon its bullying behavior and negotiate with Russia and Assad, something that was inconceivable just 6 months ago.

I was asked for my intuitive feeling. What I can share with you is more of claircognizant nature, aka, cosmic knowing.

This concert is a turning point. It marks and announces to the whole world that Syria is on the mend, that the healing has begun. It is a point of no return. What better place to have a concert of hope than in the ruins of this remarkable ancient city that suffered, but withstood the test of time.

Syria needs healing very badly, just like Ukraine does. Ukraine, unfortunately, has not reached its bottom yet. Syria has. After reaching the bottom, there is only one way to go – up. This miracle has just happened in Syria, announced to the whole world today through the Gergiev concert. However, this event also signals hope for Ukraine and Novorossia.

I get regularly asked to interpret through my calibrations various events, entities and countries. The past several months were full of various other priorities, and so, I wasn’t able to post on FT any of my calibrations. Let me offer you a treat: here are some fresh calibrations of this event, Syria, Russian role, and more.

Legend: Quantum Calibration level = C; Chi level = Chi 

Syria as a whole calibrates at this moment in time:

C: 85 – grief, suffering (due to war and devastation); Chi: 195 – striving, yearning (for peace and reconciliation)

Palmyra a few months ago, when it was in the hands of ISIS:

C: 10 – near death; Chi: 4 – brink of death

Palmyra during Gergiev Orchestra concert:

C: 195 – striving, yearning; Chi: 198 – same. As we see, it’s a gigantic leap from dying to the new life, while striving to return to normalcy. It’s still just below the minimum positive calibration of 200, but there is an absolute confidence that it will be soon reached, as Palmyra gets restored to former glory by Russian Hermitage and UNESCO.

The energy of the Gergiev Orchestra’s Palmyra concert itself:

C: 980 – Buddha consciousness, absolute truth (Wow! The top of the scale!) ; Chi: 410 – reason (Very good!).

Russia’s role in Syria:

C: 510 – love (Wow! Exceedingly rare, almost unheard of, for global actions and events!); Chi: 295 – neutrality, friendliness (Very positive!). If you are wondering how a military op can calibrate at the level of LOVE, it’s the same as light of truth chasing the darkness away, or a hero rescuing someone from a bully, risking his/her life to save someone he/she never met. Yes, it’s a fight, but the hero enters such fight out of love, desire to end suffering and save life. Right now the opinion of an average Syrian, and this includes normal opposition, is practically 100% approval and respect of Russia and Putin. Incidentally, true respect and appreciation that comes from the heart also calibrates at 500 – love.

Hmm… Some might ask me what Turkey, Qatar, Saudi and US calibrations are relative to Syrian conflict? What are ISIS and Al Nusra’s calibrations? I want to stay on the positive side today, so I won’t go into that. Hint: too close to death; enough so to send chills down normal people’s spine.

But today, let’s stay on the celebratory mode. Let’s treasure the gift of music and positive energy every time we can! It’s so rare and, therefore, precious…

Read all about my scale, definitions and more. I am planning on returning to calibrations in my future pieces.

Even those who don’t understand energy vibrations and quantum calibrations, know the healing properties of classic music. The fact that the concert takes place In Palmyra, with its amplifying cultural effect, sends a positive vibration through all of Syria, all of Middle East and world.

It is fitting and right that it was a Russian orchestra that performed the concert. The language of music is understood by all. The message of peace, love and cooperation, even in the face of devastation and destruction, is very clear.

In a Russian word: ‘это хорошо!” It’s good, it’s all very good.

LADA RAY REPORT: Putin Announces Russian Troops Withdrawal from Syria – Reasons Revealed!

Putin Announces Troops Withdrawal from Syria.

Russia’s Accomplishments and Withdrawal Reasons Revealed!

Putin is the most unpredictable politician in the world: he always tells the truth.

As many times before, Putin openly pre-announced Russian objectives in Syria and said that once they have been achieved, Russia will withdraw. It appears the West was under a complete impression Putin was lying. No wonder: that’s how they themselves behave, and they expect the same behavior from others. Their feeble minds can’t fathom that there are few out there who actually tell the truth.

FILE - In this Sunday, March 4, 2012 file photo, Syrians hold posters of Syrian President Bashar Assad, far left, and Russian President Vladimir Putin, second left, during a pro-Syrian goverment protest in front of the Russian Embassy in Damascus, Syria. In ramping up its military involvement in Syria's civil war, Russia appears to be betting that the West, horrified by Islamic State's atrocities, may be willing to tolerate Assad for a while, perhaps as part of a transition. (AP Photo/Muzaffar Salman, File)

What were Russia’s main objectives? Let’s hear it directly from the horse’s mouth.

This special talk show Evening with Vladimir Soloviev of March 15, 2016, dedicated to Russian withdrawal from Syria (Вечер с Владимиром Соловьевым. Спецвыпуск от 15.03.16), includes an excerpt from the televised October 2015 interview with President Putin. Incidentally, Evening with Vladimir Soloviev is my top recommended Russian political talk show.

I have translated the interview snippet. Soloviev (S), President Putin (P).

On this video, the October 2015 Putin interview recording starts at 23:12 and ends at 24:50: 

S: What are our real goals in Syria and what are the criteria of our success?

P: First, let me re-confirm what is already a well-known fact: we have advised in advance our American and many other partners, as well as the countries in the region, of our plans and intentions. Some say we did it too late, but let me remind everyone that no one ever advises us of their plans or actions in operations of this kind. Yet, we did it.

S: Show of good will?

P: Yes, out of good will, together with common sense. But also to show that we are open to cooperation.

S: Syrian army began advancing. What are their chances of success?

P:  This primarily depends on the Syrian army and Syrian leadership. We can’t assume any excessive responsibility upon ourselves, and we never did. I said from the start that the active phase of our Syrian operation will be limited in time by the term of the advancement of this same Syrian army. To return to your first question: our goal is specifically to stabilize the legitimate power in Syria and to create the conditions for the political dialogue and compromise.

That was said in October 2015. The whole Russian plan, timeframe and intentions were laid out clearly, for all world to hear.

Video (Putin at 23:12 – 24:50 – RUS):

LR: To add to the above, Putin and Russian Army command announced from the start that Syrian op would last 5-6 months. There were tons of doom-and-gloomers everywhere, including Russian opposition from Zhirinovsky’s LDPR to pro-West anti-Putin liberals. These predicted that Russia would get stuck in Syria, like US did in Iraq and Afghanistan, that it will be Afghanistan 2.0 for Russia, that casualties would mount…

The active phase of Russian Syrian op actually ended in 5 months! There were only two operation-related military casualties, due to Turkey’s downing of the Russian jet and rescue helicopter. Unfortunately, there were civilian casualties: terrorist act against Russian plane over Sinai, Egypt, with 224 people dead.

On March 14-15, 2016 Putin Announced Russian Troops Withdrawal from Syria. The West is in shock. They are so used to their own lies, as well as the world around them based solely on lies, that they can’t fathom how Putin can actually promise something and keep his word. As we know, the White House, Pentagon, US State Dept and NATO were completely unprepared and didn’t know what to say or how to react to the news.

I will talk much more in-depth about Putin’s strategy and style, which – I predict – will continue to surprise and stomp his adversaries, in the upcoming EARTH SHIFT REPORT FEATURE: THE PUTIN ENIGMA. You can always check the main EARTH SHIFT REPORT page on LadaRay.info for release dates of each report.

In my bestselling Earth Shift Report 5: SYRIA GAME CHANGER, released in October 2015, and in a number of other pieces, I said time and again that Putin would outplay them all. He will make his next move when no one expects it, and he will always be one, two, three moves ahead of the next guy.

Russian President Vladimir Putin speaks during a session of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum 2015 (SPIEF 2015) in St. Petersburg, Russia, June 19, 2015. Putin said on Friday Russia was doing well in tackling its economic crisis, aggravated by Western sanctions over the Ukraine crisis and a fall in global oil prices. REUTERS/Grigory Dukor

Main reasons for Russian troops withdrawal from Syria revealed!

I didn’t call Earth Shift Report 5 SYRIA GAME CHANGER by accident. What Russia did in Syria in the mere five months truly was a total game changer and a complete turnaround.

Below is a long list of objectives of the Russian Syria campaign that have been achieved in five months. (I challenge you to compare this list of things promised and delivered to what the multi-year US invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq have done to those countries; what NATO bombings have done to Libya; what the US/EU 2-year+ interference in Ukraine has turned the country into!)

Important things to remember:

Let’s recall that Russia announced from the start that there will be no ground operation. It was clear that Russia doesn’t want to repeat Soviet and US mistakes in the Middle East.

Also, let’s remember that this withdrawal is partial. This is a gesture designed to send a specific message to all parties involved, and to the global community in general. What this message is – we’ll discuss below.

Russia merely announced the end to the active phase of Syria operations. There are two bases and sufficient number of troops/crews left. Russia still controls the Syrian sky. S-400 systems remain there, which means that any flights over Syria have to be coordinated with Russia.

Additionally, it has been hinted that Russian jets, troops and ships can be returned back within hours, should necessity arise. In fact, Vladimir Putin announced that starting March 22 Russia may re-start operations against those who attempt to break the truce. This remark had a fabulous response. Those groups who thought they could begin fighting with Assad troops again once Russia left, got back to negotiations table.

Russia spent on Syrian operation $450 million. That’s all. This constitutes less than 1 percent of the Russian defence budget.

I don’t have handy the Pentagon or NATO budget numbers, but isn’t it something like their weekly allowance? Incidentally, let’s compare this to how much US spent in Iraq and Afghanistan.

syria map2

Russian accomplishments in Syria and associated withdrawal reasons: 

1. ISIS oil infrastructure – destroyed or weakened; ISIS military and terrorist infrastructure – destroyed or weakened. Multi-billion investments of ISIS/Al Nusra/ Muslim Brotherhood’s sponsors Qatar, Saudis and Turkey – destroyed. ISIS, Turkey, Saudi and Qatar oil – synthetic drug – slave – artifact smuggling ring broken, which means that the financing of terrorist activities has been dealt a major blow.

2. What really goes on in Syria has been exposed for the whole world to see. Before, the Western propaganda had a monopoly on Syria stories, presenting its usual false narrative. Now, with Russian direct footage and access given for the Western press to Russian bases and battle ships patrolling Mediterranean much of the false narrative changed dramatically. Having seen the truth, US and EU became unable to accuse Russia or Assad of various actions they didn’t commit. The Western propaganda ring has been broken and the tide has been reversed.

3. Some of the potential new recruits have been scared away from joining ISIS-Daesh and other terrorist organizations by Russian Syria campaign. The idea that they would be bombed by Russian jets, should they join, stopped many. Therefore, the lives of some of the young, lost people residing on the territory of the Russian Federation, EU and various Muslim counties, have been saved.

Per Russian statistics, about 5,000 Russian citizens joined ISIS, mostly Muslims from Caucasus, Siberia, Volga Tatars and Crimean Tatars. Also thousands joined from Muslim ex-Soviet Central Asia and Azerbaijan. These were recruited through mosques and infiltrated propagandists. The flow of ‘fresh cannon fodder’ has been at least slowed down, if not stopped.

One of pre-announced Russian goals was to prevent the already trained ISIS militants from being able to return back home, which they could do with their Russian passports. The official Russian statistics is that out of 5,000 ISIS militants with Russian passports 2,000 have been killed as a result of Russian raids.

4. Another Russian goal was to keep Syria secular and inclusive of other religions, in other words, prevent Syria from turning into another Muslim fundamentalist state. There are many Christians (both Orthodox and Catholics) that lived in Syria in peace for millennia; Assad government was always respectful of other religions. These Christians and their cities received one of the biggest blows during the invasion by ISIS. Result of Russian campaign: secular Syrian state re-affirmed, made stronger and more consolidated. Assad has been re-affirmed as national leader, at least in the interim.

5. Syrian army was able to advance and take back a number of territories, which they were unable to re-take on their own. Now the Syrian government controls about 1/2 of Syria. Just six months ago it was only about 20% of Syrian territory.

7. The trend of Syrian opposition (dubbed by US ‘moderate’) fighting Assad government troops has been decidedly reversed. Truce achieved and holding; moderate opposition has been taken out of the fight mode with Assad and is now working with Assad against ISIS. Moreover, the number of groups and bands in truce with the government continues growing daily. Altogether, there are thousands of such groups and they are all trying to secure a place for themselves in the future of Syria. All this, thanks to the skilled combined effort of the Russian military and diplomacy.

Russia opened a Center for the Syrian dialogue in Moscow, where different Syrian opposition groups can register and speak up.

Russia also put together a list of those opposition groups that want to be taken out of harms ways. If you are on the list, then you agree to the truce and to stop fighting against Assad troops. Everyone on the list agrees to fight only against ISIS. In exchange, they are guaranteed not to be bombed by Russian jets and to be included in Syrian political process.

All the above has been achieved within five months. It’s in stark contrast to the destruction and chaos US/EU and their ME allies achieved through years of inciting wars, hatred and violence.

In fact, Russia reversed the trend of US and allies encouraging ISIS and other terrorist organizations to grow like a tumor. Certainly, it’s too early to talk about ISIS/Al Nusra/Muslim Brotherhood being dealt a deathly blow. We are still very far from a true resolution of the Middle East problems and crises. If you recall, my prediction last year was that the Middle East would suffer from violence and various conflicts for a long time due to many millennial issues that have remained unresolved. Resolution will take a very long time.

But what Russia has shown in Syria is that resolution is possible; that a very discerning and targeted surgical intervention, aiming at stabilizing the country, while isolating and taking out of the equation the destructive forces, can lead to hope of a better future. The smart leaders and countries will heed this and follow the example. 

8. In the eyes of various groups in Syria, and in the eyes of the entire Middle East, Russia is now the main peacemaker and the go-to country for all grievances and deals.

A pilgrimage of various Syria opposition groups to Moscow doesn’t cease. Similarly, every week and month there are leaders of various Middle Eastern countries visiting Moscow for negotiations. Russia received leaders of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan UAE, and everyone in between, including those, like Qatar, who just recently tried to undermine Russia, and who were implicated in the Russian passenger plane downing over Sinai, Egypt. Not that Qatar or SA would stop their undermining activities, but at least for now they have to negotiate.

Leaders of the Kurds from Syria, Iraq and Turkey have been visiting Moscow and meeting with Russians. Kurdistan’s first representative office has opened in Moscow.

Incidentally, as described in SYRIA GAME CHANGER, Israeli PM Netanyahu was one of the first to visit Moscow before the start of the Russian Syria incursion in 2015. Back then I said that Israel, with the usual Jewish shrewdness, knew who to ‘call.’ Let’s say that Israel knew ‘the right phone number’ and understood how to position itself before Syria events. This is why Israel was first to sign a Syria cooperation and intel sharing deal with Russia. I said back then that Israel knows where the wind is blowing and is re-orienting itself towards Russia, Eurasia and SCO.

 For those who want to hear me out: I said many times before that we are going through a massive Earth Shift in all areas of life on the planet. I am your guide in this tectonic Earth Shift.  Those who read my FREE articles, Earth Shift Reports  and materials on LadaRay.info, especially LADA RAY OMNIVERSE section, will be well prepared for the Shift to come.

8. As a result of years of USA’s failures, especially compared to Russia’s success, US influence in the Middle East is waning fast. Russian influence is growing just as fast.

Non-ISIS/non-Al Nusra opposition is now much less likely to look to the US and much more likely to go to Russia for advice and direction.

US clout in the Middle East is extremely low, even in the countries fully dependent in them. Saudis consider themselves betrayed by the US and continue giving signals to Russia that they want closer cooperation (frankly, I wouldn’t trust them for a moment, but a situational alliance might be useful). Iraq and Afghanistan continue attempting to ask Russia for assistance in fighting ISIS on their territory, while US continues blocking these requests. Russians signaled they would help Afghanistan and Iraq, if asked formally by their governments. One of the big reasons to help is that terrorists and smugglers from those two could potentially infiltrate Central Asia and south Caucasus, from where they can get into Russia proper through porous ex-Soviet republics’ borders.

The latest on that: Russian military signaled that they have secured the Central Asian borders in Tajikistan through the newly expanded base and that infiltration isn’t possible any more. 

9. Russia achieved its goal of securing bases in Syria / on the Mediterranean coast. Russia now has two bases, which will continue being maintained. All this will be secured by diplomatic documents that will hold under international scrutiny regardless of what government comes after Assad.

10. Russia got US to take off the table its demand that ‘Assad must go’ – a MAJOR win for Russia and a major show of US weakness.

11. Syria elections – another achievement. This means that Assad has been legitimized in the eyes of the West and Syrian opposition. They all now have to work with Assad, whether they want it or not.

If Assad is reconfirmed as the national leader by elections, they will have no choice but to recognize him. If he isn’t reconfirmed, then there will be new government, which, unlike Libya, destroyed by the US and EU interference, will have to be secular and inclusive, under Russian and international supervision.

12. I wrote about this in SYRIA GAME CHANGER. Federalization of Syria and the Kurds is possible. I consider this a good outcome, if done correctly. Kurds announced they are forming a federation (aka, autonomy) within Syria. At the very minimum, this means they are not trying to secede, further destabilizing the region. This announcement, so far not recognized by Assad or internationally, puts a lot of pressure on Erdogan and Turkey, who are bombing and killing Kurds on their own territory. For the Turkish Kurds now there is an inspiring example in Syria. This weakens Erdogan. I have talked at length in ESR5 and ESR7 about Erdogan, Davutoglu, ans the issue of the Kurds.

In ESR5 I said that Syria needs to move to federalization. Russia, the world’s largest federation, can help Syria like no other.

Assad is afraid to recognize Kurdish autonomy as well, fearing this will lead to further destabilization of the country. He is partially right: US/West/Saudi/Qatar/Turkey’s interference in the affairs of decentralized, autonomous regions will be that much easier. But Assad may have no choice. In the end it all depends on how skilled his diplomats and politicians are. Russia will lend a hand in negotiations.

As a matter of fact, it has been recognized by various opposition and pro-government forces that Russia is the one and only power to talk to. As one Assad’s opponent said, ‘now Russia is again seen as the only peacemaker in the region by all forces in Syria.’

13. Withdrawing at the time when Kerry and Lavrov have decided on the framework on Syria negotiations and when the main list of Syrian ‘moderate’ opposition’ groups has been compiled underscores Russia’s commitment to peaceful, diplomatic solution of Syrian conflict.

Since Geneva negotiations between government and opposition began, the withdrawal and cessation of Russian bombings sent all the right kinds of signals to the parties involved: Russian Army has done its job. Now it’s time for Russian diplomacy to do theirs.

Putin reconfirmed this signal when he met on March 14th with both Russian FM Sergey Lavrov and Defence Minister Sergey Shoigu. The message was very strong and unmistakable: the army has done what was needed to stabilize Syria, now let’s pass the baton to our diplomats, who will deepen and solidify this success.

Russia: Troops arriving home from Syria given hero’s welcome

Russia: Troops can be deployed back to Syria ‘in mere hours’ if necessary – Putin

14. Last, but not least, by announcing partial withdrawal, Russia sent a message to Assad. The message is that Assad shouldn’t rest on laurels; that he can’t think that Russia was there to support him personally.

Russia sent a message, understood fully by all political and military groups in Syria and beyond: we won’t always be in Syria to bail out Assad. He needs to find his own stride for reconciliation. We are here to establish pre-conditions for political process by stabilizing the country and allowing the fair and equal voice to the people. What does this kind of message do? It puts the fire under Assad, making him agree to elections and national dialogue. It also restrains honest opposition from further armed clashes with government forces, making them see the light in the end of the tunnel – the light of possible peaceful resolution and political change in the interests of the country.

The Russian Syria withdrawal timing is genius:

All in all, Russia took away from the West and their Middle East vassals the possibility of escalation of anti-Assad rhetoric and, therefore, escalation of Syria conflict, leading to further destabilization of the country and region.

1. UK is now in a difficult position. Its attempt to build a new army and invade Syria through Libya now makes it look like a bully and invader in the eyes of own citizens.

2. Turkey was preparing its own invasion of Syria. Russian withdrawal announcement was a cold shower to Erdogan. Now US/NATO are forced to restrain Turkey from rash actions. In fact, the entire Russian op put a huge harness on Turkey’s ambitions to chop off a chunk of Syria, promised to him by US/Qatar and Saudis in late 2000s. It also dampened Erdogan’s ambition to resurrect Ottoman Khalifate. Read all about that in ESR7: TURKISH CONUNDRUM.

3.  This move by Russia also restrains US actions in Syria, together with those of Saudis and Qatar. Now their hands are tied and they can’t continue trying to unseat Assad, otherwise they look like bullies. Of course, to make this happen Lavrov and Russia first made US admit that negotiations were the way to go, remove from the agenda ‘Assad must go’ mantra and compose a list of opposition forces ready to negotiate. Being tied into the negotiations framework makes it impossible for US to start invading Syria willy-nilly.

4. Besides that, Russia ingeniously timed Syria op, negotiations and withdrawal to the US presidential elections year. Obama and democrats desperately need to show some kind of international successes. This is why they suddenly began playing nice with Cuba, sat down with Iran last year and this is why they are ready to negotiate in Syria.

5. Another reason Russia announced partial withdrawal: sand storm season has begun, which makes flights difficult to impossible for a couple of months. Again – good timing.

6. US has recently gone into Syria, while Russia is already out. This again demonstrates that US continues scrambling to catch up to Russia. Read: Why Is Obama Scrambling to Catch Up to Putin?  In ESR5 I said that Syria 2015-16 reminds me of WWII and 1944. It was in 1944 that US/UK suddenly saw the light and opened second front against Hitler, but only after they realized that USSR could take Berlin and liberate Europe all by themselves.

As I said, Putin is always several steps ahead. This is especially true after the devious US game in Ukraine.

Let me tell you something: the fact that Russia was not playing devious games in Ukraine was perceived by US and EU as a weakness and an opening to go in. As usual, they are unable to conceive that there are some who don’t play devious games not because they can’t, but because they are above it.

It’s not dangerous, but actually good – not for the US,  but for Russia and the rest of the world – that US is stuck on the ground in yet another conflict in the Middle East. US troops are on the ground in Syria – Russian are not; US has already given a commitment they will fight ISIS, after they were shamed by Russia into doing so (as explained in ESR5). Good, let them finally live up to their promises and do something useful for a change!

Meanwhile, Russian reputation and clout in the Middle East is growing, while US is waning. US is playing a humiliating catch-up, while Russia continues leading.

In fact, I think that in part this Russian withdrawal has been timed so to demonstrate how slow and ill-equipped US and EU are for the modern strategic operations. Sort of: ‘see, we’ve accomplished everything we said we would, and are already out, while these dinosaurs are only getting in.’ The world isn’t blind and can see what’s going on.

When US showed to the whole world that it was absolutely unwilling to respect Russian interests, Russia and Putin began showing that in fact they are very capable of playing games, and much better than the West – if they want to.

Finally, here are two other good reasons for the timing of this withdrawal:

7. March 15th was one day before the 2nd anniversary of the Crimean referendum, which returned Crimea to Russia. This was part of the holiday present for March 16-19, the dates when Crimea and Sevastopol were officially accepted as two new subjects of the Russian Federation. Russia is clean and out of any conflicts on foreign soil – was the loud and clear message.

8. Now, being out of Syria, Russia can deal without any distractions with Ukraine and other problems close to home, such as Central Asia and Caucasus. This also includes Turkey and all of Black Sea.
