Syrian Foreign Minister: We have confidence in the leadership of Russia  

We believe in its determination to Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem in an exclusive interview with RT Arabic urged international forces to coordinate their actions and to fight terrorism in the Middle East together. The same position, stressed Moallem, shared by Russia . While the actions of the coalition led by the United States, has not yet yielded results in the fight against terrorism. The results of air strikes that cause the positions of the US group "Islamic State" (LIH *), almost imperceptible. About this in an exclusive interview with RT Arabic said Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem. 

Asked whether Damascus expect real results from the cooperation of Syria and Russia, the Foreign Minister said: "Of course. After all, Moscow is acting within the framework of international law, respects the sovereignty of Syria and coordinate with Damascus. US act differently, and what they are doing, it proves to be ineffective. " "The United States carried out air strikes, but do not report their results, and the results are almost imperceptible. In our opinion, the only Syrian Armed Forces are able to effectively deal with the "Islamic state" and "Al-Nusra Front." We call on those who sincerely wishes to deal with the terrorists, to coordinate their actions so that they are effective. 

Herein lies the difference in approaches to Syria and the United States to conduct the fight, "- said Walid al-Moallem. Cooperation in Syria Minister stressed that Damascus is ready to cooperate in the Syrian territory to other countries in the region or the world to the same extent as with Russia . "This is the core initiative of Vladimir Putin. He called for the creation of a broad anti-terrorist front with the participation of the Syrian armed forces. We support this initiative, and we declare that we are ready to coordinate their actions with any country in the world, in fact, I sincerely wish to fight terrorism. 

To prove the sincerity of intentions, these countries need only to stop providing financial and military support to terrorists. "The campaign against Russia and Syria Thus Walid al-Moallem said that he was" not interested "is the information campaign, which is deployed against the development of coordination between Damascus and Moscow's security. "The fact that we do together with our Russian friends, we know, was published. We do not hide under the table. We believe the Russian Federation our friend and strategic ally, who is honest in his business. Russia believes that the fight against terrorism must be conducted in accordance with international law. That is, in coordination with the Syrian government, "- he said the head of the Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. "

The Russian Federation does not hide its determination to participate in the fight against terrorism. We trust the leadership in Syria, Russia, and believe in his determination. We do not hide, and proud of it "- he added. According to him, Russia's help in the fight against LIH" overturns the table "for those who" wove a conspiracy against Syria. "" This shows that the US and its coalition have a clear strategy against LIH. They understood the message of Russia and wanted to coordinate their actions and cooperate with it. This is an important step and deserves thanks from the Russian friends. The fight against terrorism the duty of every state in the world in accordance with the resolutions of the Security Council, "- said the diplomat." LIH "- the activities of this organization in the territory of the Russian Federation officially banned.

We live in the territory of endless elections. Election battles, races and technology 
accompanied us all the years of independence. When Ukraine Donetsk region represented the Party of Regions, for which we dutifully vote and hurt both "our". The results of the entire history of the Ukrainian elections, marked on the map in orange and blue, every election season showed a clear dividing line party wins - the Dnieper. 

In a referendum on May 11, we unprecedented turnout unanimously expressed their NO maydanutoy inadequate power. In November 2014, we are realizing the need to legitimize its leaders also came en masse to the polls. Now we have to hold elections to local councils, but will vote whether the Donetsk team with the same enthusiasm and this time? The general state of mind of the inhabitants of the Republic can now be expressed as follows: frustration, confusion, fatigue. 

After the revolutionary romanticism and sunk barricade period came the war and the bitter sobering realization that as easily as the Crimea on a white boat, we will not get to Russia.Although it is for it rallied, fought, died. We believe that the Russian did not throw her. The only light at the end of the tunnel, which gave us the strength to live and fight - it was a dream of returning home. We are sincerely happy for the Crimean and swallowing her tears, watched the broadcast from there: a referendum, the accession, the 70th anniversary of the Great Victory Day, the anniversary of the referendum, "The Way Home". Nashalivshie As kids, we went to hug his mother to forgive us and caressed, but the harsh hand of the empress exhibited us out the door, go to the tutors for science, prescribes rules of conduct. And we learn a lesson, once again followed the motherly blessing. 

Because the love of the mother does not need excuses, and warmth in the heart in spite of everything. The second year of Donbass is suspended deadlock frozen conflict. During this time, we have learned not only to survive under the bombs and shelling, but also reap the benefits of non-recognition of the state. Without a passport, the banking system, cut off the blockade, humiliated at checkpoints and customs, we manage to live, work and build. Only faith gives us strength and courage without feeding, dry out and weaken. Without faith in the soul - the disappointment and emptiness. 

More and more people of Donetsk cease to believe in the future of New Russia, the victory of the Russian world, and a cunning plan. Gone from the most ideological militia volunteers. Grigory, miners and soldiers otpahal this war from the Slavyansk Debalcevo up without a single scratch come home. Hands and feet on the ground, but the soul is eaten by resentment, a sense of uselessness and global injustice. He is a child read right books about pioneer heroes of botanists siege of Leningrad, who, dying of hunger right at the workplace, and not eaten, preserved collection of seeds of food plants. Brought up on the ideals of courage of the Soviet people in the struggle against fascism, Grigory thought that everything repeats that nedodushennyh Nazis in 1945 is now also hunt filthy broom, but he was wrong. 

It turned out that in this war everything is for sale, and that the heights of the city did not take the fighters with grenades and bargain oligarchs each other. It turned out that the crosses and medals handed out right and left, not to those who received five times the fire itself, protecting the Saur-Tomb. It turned out that independent, very talented and daring commanders, removed from the arena of the dirtiest overt ways.I

t turned out that wormhole banal greed and corruption gnawed equally both Ukrainian and Russian elites, since they all come from a bandit nineties. That soldiers returned from the war a hero, and so a misunderstanding ... do not see any progress miners and steelworkers who continue to receive a salary in the Ukrainian hryvna bank cards. This means that large enterprises in the legal field are the enemy of Ukraine and continue to pay a whopping tax enumerate the state pension lishivshemu old, selected benefits for young mothers. Dashed dreams of building a true people's republic without oligarchs openly selling their home. Bold cross on dreams last romantics put event, not in any way shown in the media. 

Four days languished in custody the former speaker of the People's Council Andrey Purgin, and during this time due to his very "transparent" night deprived of voting positions and powers. But why do people know what happens to a person TV? Why make a statement and explain to the people what is going on? The official TV - sterile silence. As usual, if there is something extraordinary, and there is no official explanation for the event, it acquires a variety of rumors. While on TV channels continue to slobber no alternative to the Minsk format of Internet is teeming with revelations and prospects drain of New Russia. 

The facts and conclusions that do not add confidence in the future, but on the contrary, make even the most stubborn defenders of the Russian world to think that it is time to leave the territory. Repeated statements by Vladislav Dana that the transfer of the border LDNR-Russian Federation under the control of the Kiev authorities on the condition of creating some sort of structure does not interfere with the republics, but on the contrary, it would be consistent with the spirit and letter of the Minsk accords any zdravomyslyaschkeo residents of besieged Donbass deprive the latter pivot point . Give frontier for us - it's like crop insurance voluntarily, under the big top. But this is what we offer members and envoys, for whom we should vote again. 

If this is a cunning political move, full of secret meaning mnogohodovochka, we, simple hard worker and retirees, is unclear. And no, we do not explain. No one is advocating with the electorate, are totally confused in what is black and what is white.But, of course, we are waiting for the polling stations. Create spectacular telekartinku and queue for hours to the polls - that is our civic duty. We performed it twice. We can, and for the third time to express their civil position, but what? Agree on large-autonomy within a federal Ukrainian border, and to give "ukram" ?! 

Ask about those who lost their homes and loved ones. Try explaining that to the soldiers, stopped at Mariupol, departed from the Slavic, the fact that almost a year on the positions can not wait for the order to attack and release and Kontstantinovku Kramatorsk, Mariupol and Lisichansk ... Explain residents torn Gorlovka, for which we now need to vote ?! And we never occurred, why should we have to hold elections according to the law of Ukraine? Or the law DNI, which is published in January, but the view of something, as amended on something? 

On the TV screen is sounded one or the other version, the voter feels deceived fool. Recently, on the official website of the Central Election Commission of Ukraine, a list of political parties taking part in the local elections in Ukraine in 2015. At number 137 appears the party "Mi maєmo Meta" (in Russian "We have a goal"), whose leader is Pushilin Denis. The one who represents the interests of the blockade of New Russia in endless negotiations in Minsk. The one who took the place of Andrew Purgina after his arrest and displacement, and became Chairman of the National Council of the DNI. 

The one who does not disappear from the TV screens, and non-stop muttering mantras Minsk format. It is for it, we should vote? Or it is clean and very patriotic, and references to it in the list of Ukrainian parties - simply a technical oversight, outdated information? Maybe so, but we do nothing and no one believe. For most people the only secret desires Donbas is a "suitcase - Russia - but only with your station." We are too Russian to refuse it. And if we are to get home after the war, humiliation and blockade, we will be able to endure it. 

By voting for the independence of the head of the Donetsk Republic, we voted for the heart to become a federal districts of Donetsk. Choosing the Head of the republic, we are all agreed on conflicts of unrecognized states in the hope of becoming a completely legitimate subject of the federation. And again we could show the hardness of the Russian character, if our faith is not quenched. If not keep the people in ignorance and explained the plans for the future. The more that people sometimes become the electorate, the results of which will have the will to build the post-election all parties to the conflict. And if people are not respected, it will turn its back on those who believed very recently.

US condemns Russia and Syria fight against "Islamic state"

US condemns Russia and Syria fight against "Islamic state"
US Permanent Representative to the United Nations Samantha Power said in a CNN interview that support for Assad from Moscow, even in the fight against the group "Islamic State" is not acceptable. This led coalition in Washington a year bombed rebel positions and despite the fact that the campaign did not produce tangible results, refuses to cooperate with the government of Syria. 

US Permanent Representative to the United Nations Samantha Power has criticized Moscow for what it sends to Syria of arms and military staff. The diplomat said Russia should not provide assistance to the government of Bashar al-Assad, even to combat extremist group "Islamic State". Here's how she explained Washington's position. "Even if we were talking about Machiavelli that only would have thought that an" Islamic state ", to support such a regime and does not take into account the views of the overwhelming majority of the Syrian people, who want to move in another direction - This approach will bring neither peace nor victory over terrorism. " 

But this, according to President Putin, his main goal, "- said Power. The US and Russia hold very different strategies to combat" Islamic state. " The Russian side claims that extremists overcome without the help of the Syrian army, which currently leads military action against the IG, it will not turn. The US president, in turn, said that "Russia's strategy is doomed to failure." These words of Samantha Power repeated in an interview with CNN. «I repeat what President Obama said on Friday that this strategy Russia is doomed to failure", - she said. 

This begs the question: to what extent has proved a winning strategy for the United States? For example, the invasion of Iraq, where all the country's leadership was overthrown. And where it was unleashed a devastating civil war, which, as acknowledged by Barack Obama, has led to the emergence in Iraq, "al-Qaeda"? Can we call a winning strategy of Washington in Afghanistan or Libya, and now - Syria? The coalition led by the United States for a year bombed positions of the "Islamic state", but the group continues to recruit new fighters and still retains control over significant areas of Iraq and Syria.

Syrian Army Recaptures Al-Kassarat Near the Syrian Capital

Syrian Army Recaptures Al-Kassarat Near the Syrian Capital



On Sunday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s 105th Brigade of the Republican Guard – in coordination with the Palestine Liberation Army (PLA) and the National Defense Forces (NDF) – advanced from the strategic hilltop of Tal Abu Zaid to the village of Al-Kassarat along the Homs-Damascus Highway, resulting in a series of intense firefights with the Islamist rebels of Jaysh Al-Islam (Army of Islam).

Following a morning of non-stop firefights, the Syrian Armed Forces finally broke-through Jaysh Al-Islam’s frontline defenses at Al-Kasarat, capturing the village after the Islamist rebels found themselves surrounded along Homs-Damascus Highway in the Harasta-Dhahiyat Al-Assad area.

With the capture of Tal Abu Zaid and Al-Kassarat, the Syrian Armed Forces have now secured the Dhahiyat Al-Assad area, while also reversing much of Jaysh Al-Islam’s gains near the contested city of Harasta in the East Ghouta (collection of farms).

Meanwhile, inside Harasta, intense clashes persisted throughout the day on Sunday, as the Islamist rebels of Jaysh Al-Islam attempted to infiltrate past the National Defense Forces’ frontline positions at the Harasta National Hospital and Police State.

However, the Islamist rebel fighters were unsuccessful once again, as the fierce resistance from the National Defense Forces and the relentless airstrikes proved too much for the encroaching Jaysh Al-Islam militants inside Harasta.

For the second straight week, the National Defense Forces and Jaysh Al-Islam clashed at the Adra Central Prison near Tal Kurdi-Adra axis, resulting in a high death toll for both sides involved; however, the Islamist rebel fighters were repelled before they could achieve any success.

EU may finally be showing signs of breaking away from U.S. | by Eric Zuesse

Is the EU finally showing signs of breaking away from U.S. ?

by Eric Zuesse

On Saturday, September 12th, United Kingdom’s Labour Party elected as its leader and their candidate to lead the UK, Jeremy Corbyn, who has been the most vocal British critic of the UK’s serving as the lap-dog of an aggressive imperialistic United States of America.

Simultaneously, the leader of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s own Christian Social Union Party, Horst Seehofer, a man who, prior to his being appointed to be the Party-chief had been Chancellor Merkel’s Agriculture Minister, has now turned against Chancellor Merkel (who until now was the most powerful leader in all of Europe) and denounced her policy on the refugee crisis, and has now stated publicly that Germany should instead ally with Russia and against NATO on the entire Syrian war.

This public statement, which is really a sea-change in history, was reported Friday night, 11 September, in Germany’s leading magazine, The Mirror, Der Spiegel, and it represents the breaking-point in Germany’s foreign policy, finally yielding now to the rapidly rising anti-Americanism within Germany that results from America’s prioritizing America’s war against Russia as being a more impotant goal than the global war against Islamic jihad, which is clearly the most pressing threat to national security not only within Germany, and not only within all Western countries, but even within Pakistan and many other countries that have majority-Islamic populations, as well as in India, China, and other nations around the world.

Seehofer’s statement simply cannot be ignored by the Chancellor, because it comes from the leader of her own Party (“Christian Social Union” is the Party’s name in Munich and throughout Bavaria, but elsewhere in Germany the Party is called instead the “Christian Democratic Union”). She has mainly ignored German public opinion thus far and cooperated with U.S. President Barack Obama’s war against Russia, which Obama is waging via his proxies in Ukraine, Syria, Libya, and elsewhere. But Merkel now will have to bend; and this could end up breaking NATO itself, since NATO is the international military alliance that was originally against the Soviet Union and that then became against Russia as soon as the Soviet Union ended communism and broke up into Russia and the other nations of the former Soviet Union.

That continuation of the Cold War, now against Russia alone, even without the former ideological excuse of there being communism, was initiated by U.S. President George Herbet Walker Bush himself. It was reluctantly picked up by then West-German Chancellor Helmut Kohl, whose protégée was Angela Merkel. “Bush made his feelings about compromising with Moscow clear to Kohl: ‘To hell with that!’ he said. ‘We prevailed, they didn’t.’” (This “compromise” was that NATO not expand “one inch eastward”; the promise that Bush’s own Secretary of State had made to the then-Soviet leader, Mikhail Gorbachev, and on the basis of which Gorbachev allowed the Soviet Union and Warsaw Pact to end and East Germany to be taken by West Germany.)

And so, the Cold War never really ended in the West (though Gorbachev was promised that it would); but, now, it might be finally forced to end, without a nuclear war (which continues to be the U.S. threat but becomes far less likely without there being allies for that on America’s side), because the current U.S. President’s intensification of the long-suppressed ongoing U.S. war against Russia is becoming too much for Germany, and for many other countries within the NATO alliance, to continue supporting. A serious international movement to destroy all nuclear weapons might even begin now.

The only NATO member-nations that are still highly supportive of America’s ongoing war against Russia are some former member-nations of the former Soviet Union and of the Soviet Union’s equivalent of NATO, the Warsaw Pact, which broke up in 1991 when the Soviet Union itself did. Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia, are among the now-NATO, former Soviet and Warsaw Pact, nations that are as anti-Russian as is the American ruling class (which President Obama represents).

However, America’s former allies when the United States used to be a democracy, the West-European nations, are now starting to abandon the U.S., and so too are some of the East-European nations that were formerly under the Soviet yoke, such as Czech Republic, and Hungary.

America’s deepest control extended especially into two nations: UK, and Germany. However, the decision that George Herbert Walker Bush made in 1990, and that has been adhered to by his successors, to continue the former Cold War until Russia itself is defeated and becomes added to the America Empire, is now being increasingly abandoned by America’s formerly obedient vassal-nations. The American Empire has reached its zenith, and is now breaking apart.

World War III - Who Will Be Blamed?

World War III - Who Will Be Blamed?

Published on Sep 11, 2015
Sources and transcript:

If you want to start a to war, the unwashed masses must be convinced to send their brothers, sons and fathers to die on the front lines. The specter of an external enemy must be etched into their collective mind through trauma, exaggeration and repetition. History must be whitewashed, twisted and cherry picked down to a politicized nursery rhyme. At no point should the real motives or consequences of such an endeavor be discussed.
