Where Again Are Six-Million Jews to Go?

 

The anti-Semites, anti-Zionists and anti-Israel forces are still at it claiming that the Jewish State must be dissolved and the Jews of Israel, well; they never really quite say what they are supposed to do. Often we hear that false adage that they can simply go back where they came from. That ignores the nearly four-million born right here in Israel as they came from here. Ah, right, they are supposed to return to where their parents or grandparent or back as far as necessary to find a forefather who came from elsewhere. For some that would be Babylonia, a place somewhat difficult to find in the modern world. How about the approaching half whose lineage came from the Arab world, they are supposed to return where again? Their former home nation if followed back is in the Middle East or North Africa, not exactly the garden spot for Jews these days. Even those who came here from Europe are not exactly going to be permitted back into those nations; they are too busy finding homes for displaced Syrian refugees. The ones who can from the former Soviet Union and others from Russia cannot return to a nation which does not even have sufficient economy to support its dwindling population. The United States made their position on where does one place six-million Jews whose lives would otherwise be forfeit quite clear with the SS St. Louis which they not only had forbidden landing in any American port even to take on fuel lest a single Jew escape over the side and instead sent the ship and its nine-hundred plus Jews back to Germany. Canada, same story. Then there was that other nation suggested by some Muslim spokesperson, Alaska, which apart from not being a nation would have the nativists in the United States claiming the native Inuit People were being displaced and we do not need to start all over with a real native population this time as the false claims of a Palestinian Peoples is bad enough. And what of the small but still related to tens of thousands of native Jews whose parents can trace their lineage back to the tribes arriving from out of Egypt, an Egypt which is nonexistent today? The problem is nowhere near as simple as they can go back where they came from. Nowhere from which they came from wants them either. So, once again, where do we place over six-million Jews?

 

We could go from nation to nation and give the logistics as to why an influx of six-million people, let alone six-million of the world’s most notoriously unwanted people, would be an imposition making such a transfer impossible. To be entirely honest, the transfer of the Arabs residing in Judea and Samaria would be less problematic as for them as refugees, if it were not for the desire to abuse them as a bludgeon to destroy Israel and murder her Jews, would be readily accepted throughout the Western World with open arms as are the Syrian refugees, or at least the Syrian refugees were being accepted until some legal difficulties arose. Now accepting even the Syrian refugees is proving to be quite difficult. The one continent which would not have a voice from its native population would be Antarctica as the penguins are a fairly affable lot. Still, does the world really want to risk turning Antarctica into the next Garden of Eden when the Jews turn it into a garden like environment? Oh, wait, the nativists’ ecological wing of the world would really be upset and would start screaming climate change. And the world’s oceans might be upset with all that melting ice but I presume the Jews might be persuaded to keep a frozen ring around their new Garden of Eden and store the water within just as long as they did not permit it to spill into the oceans. Face it, wherever the Jews would be placed would become the next garden spot on the planet and somebody would immediately claim it was their peoples’ native land and demand the Jews be sent elsewhere. That is what happened here in Israel.

Perhaps we should refresh everybody’s memories, and for some inform them for the first time. Before 1850 the lands between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea was where people were sent as a punishment all the way back to before the Roman Empire. When Pontius Pilate was sent to Judea, yes, Judea as it was not named Syria Palaestina a Roman province around 135 AD; he was sent off into oblivion hoped never to be heard from again as Judea was where the romans sent people as a punishment. The same with the Greeks and the sole people ever to want to come to this region were the Jews and whenever they did they were sent gleefully as those remaining behind snickered. The strange thing is the heat and lack of rain for much of the year and flooding the other three months and some fetid swamps and rocky terrain were viewed as a curse. Even the British sent their unkind here to perish in the heat and swamplands. Yet, as soon as the Jews have returned to these lands they would blossom and some empire would sweep in and conquer them, remove the Jews and then puzzle as to what it was they ever saw in this forbidding land. After a while when the Jews screaming and kicking up a fuss to return to their homeland became too much of a headache, the Jews (originally called Hebrews) were sent packing with the blessings of whichever empire wished to be rid of them. The Jews would return, refurbish and rebuild as the busy little beavers they appear to emulate and rebuild the land. The newest empire, not knowing the heartache that awaited them, would sweep in, remove the Jews and the land would spit them out and cry for the Jews to return. Yes, the land wanted the Jews and the Jews wanted the land and they too were always happy with one another. Read the Bible, the Old Testament.

 

This cycle is still true to this day. Ask yourselves exactly what do you think the Arabs, there are no real people called Palestinians and were none before 1964 when Yasser Arafat and the KGB invented them and before that was a phrase used to describe the Jews. What do you think the Arabs will do once they are given Israel? Yes, that’s right, kill the Jews and take the land for themselves. And exactly what do you expect to happen then? Right, the land will grow wild and inhospitable and the Arabs will flee back from whence they came and the land will be empty again just as Mark Twain, almost every British historian and so many others including the leader of the Muslims who ruled from Damascus found even Jerusalem to be inhospitable and gave up attempting to make it into a fun park for vacations and ran back to nice, civilized and temperate Damascus. When one compares Damascus favorably to a land, that land is not a nice place to live, but we Jews love it here and the land loves our being here, so why not save everybody a real load of difficulty and trouble, leave the Jews alone here for a change and allow everyone else to go on their merry way. Those Arabs who really want to remain here and live in peace with the Jews, wonderful, they can sign a loyalty oath and we will design some path to full citizenship and the rest can return where their ancestors came from as the vast majority arrived after 1900 anyways, and that is documentable by simply reading the British census information going back to just after World War I and the Ottoman census information for centuries before that. Can we try that for a change instead of allowing everything the Jews have built to go into ruin again and eventually sending the Jews back and the next “indigenous peoples” to claim it was all their land before the Jews came despite everyone knowing it was a lie but stealing Israel from the Jews only to have it turn to rubble within fifty to one-hundred years as this cycle will need to be broken eventually, why not now?

American Mainstream Jews and Israel Has the Love Waned?

 

American mainstream Jews’ love affair with Israel has all but died, but it ain’t over yet. Just as in Europe where its Jews had all but turned their backs completely on Israel as there were more important and pressing things that mattered and anyway, loving Israel when all around you are critical and demanding you back-up their views in order to fit in, well, you know. And Israel with its resorting to the sword at any little provocation because, after all, those rockets almost never hit anything vital and the people were mostly safe, at least that is what their friends in Tel Aviv had told them. And the terrorism was mostly aimed at those crazy Jews, the settler people who lived the bible. Now Europe has changed and its Jews are rapidly changing their tune as well. They are coming home in droves compared to ten years ago. These droves will appear as but a light drizzle when the floodgates open and the European Jews come forth returning to their true home as fast as their arrangements will carry them. Towards the end of Judaism in Europe, something the European elite feel cannot happen fast enough, there will be a flood and selling their holdings back home will not even slow them, many leaving that to a real estate broker who they hope does not cheat them too badly. The end of Judaism in Europe will be the final specter over a soon dead Europe as the new owners take to their voting booths and install the exact same theocratic, dictatorial governance they fled dumping democracy because that is not how the Sharia works, the Imams take over and they decide what is best for every last person and their demands are final. This will be the final chapter in Europe as a result of throwing off all religious observance and then even the pretense of Christianity and soon thereafter they will be wondering what was happening as the last vestiges of Judeo-Christian society and all of its niceties fade as a crescent moon rises triumphantly over Europe.

 

The final flood of Old Europe will make that voyage to Canada, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, anywhere where the old customs still flicker. Perhaps when they reach the shores of North America they will realize their lost religions and rededicate themselves and even mean it. Their stories about the end in Europe might even wake up the masses in the United States though it is doubtful. As the economy in Europe fails, just as the economies in the Middle East and North Africa had failed before, and the population continues to grow as that is the directive of the Imam and the reason polygamy was prized by the Imams in times past, it produced the maximum numbers of children and the majority of the men would find themselves without a wife as the wealthy and positioned each has four wives, some secretively even more as their concubines leaving the one hope for marriage as the spoils of war and conquest. A large share even found they enjoyed the thrill of war and became savage killing machines and Islam prospered through conquest always gathering more wealth as the former rulers across the path of North Africa and the western and eastern edges of Europe slowed and eventually turned back the tide of Islam which became the Ottoman Empire, appeared to have lost their lusting’s for conquest and settled down to a few centuries rest before the house of cards fell during World War I. The centuries of Islamic foreign dictatorial rule ended and the mere decades of European and Christian conquest which largely modernized the large cities where the Europeans were initially met with small bands of resistance and the majority enjoyed the new wealth and modernization which came behind the Europeans. Eventually the small bands became large bands and remaining was not worth the efforts and after World War II the idea of colonialism had died. The retreat of the Europeans gave way to the rule of dictators mostly installed as the Europeans set governances up which would permit their access to the raw materials and other requirements such as the oil of the Arabian Peninsula which remained in foreign hands until the late 1950s and through the early 1960s as one nation after another overtook the oil fields and a weakened Europe simply cried foul and then were not interested in enforcing their will into foreign venture. So, the Europeans came, modernized while setting in place technology for the extraction of raw materials for which the Europeans had some use. They tired far faster than their Islamic predecessors and returned to their familiar shores in Europe and Britain. The locals federalized these assets the Europeans desired and continued selling them to the Europeans and their forces of funding which allowed the rulers to purchase modern weapons with which to firmly entrench themselves with the backing of the Europeans.

 

This remained the situation with the occasional coup replacing one dictator for another while nothing really changed and Europe remained fat and happy. This was not the case in the United States which though having a lesser interest in raw materials, other than oil for keeping the economy humming along, they demanded maintained blocking mechanisms such as Turkey and their holding both shores of the Bosphorus Straits through which the Soviet Union Navy had to pass to reach the Mediterranean Sea and thus the Atlantic Ocean. All this was occurring while a sea of change in Jewish identity was also progressing. Zionism had been rekindled and Jews sought to return home to Eretz Yisroel, to Israel. This drive preceded World War I but became possible due to the fall of the Ottoman Empire. What must be noted is that Jews had already began to return to Israel before World War I and had set up their communities which introduced modern farming techniques and introduced new wealth and opportunity in the area attracting Arabs to also move to take advantage of an actual economy. After World War I the Europeans seeing a way with which to rid themselves of the incessant demands of the Zionists and at the San Remo Conference where the Balfour Declaration into the Conference final documents which were further finalized and made international law with the acceptance by all parties involved including any Arab representation at the Treaty of Sèvres which was enacted within and superceding by theTreaty of Lausanne. The inclusion of the Mandate System which would eventually lead to a Jewish State, the nation of Israel, which unlike the other nations, exactly as Lebanon, Syria and Jordan which were all birthed, Syria had existed previously but this could have been called the new Syria as it was more the name taken from the Ottoman name to the region, just as the British mandate was over the former province of Palestine so it took that name, was being established as a new and recognized State and not a colony as once released it was freed of European rule making it more like the colonial holdings when they eventually threw off the yoke of European rule. Simply put, Israel was a colony, not a colonizer. Israel was not a purely European venture as it also had a large percentage of Jews who were not from Europe and that percentage grew rapidly in the initial ten to fifteen years of Israeli existence.

 

That brings us to the world of today after another World War, the European thumb lifted off the Middle East and Northern Africa and beyond setting numerous developing nations free. This included the final ending of the colonization of the lands of Israel setting her borders as the Mediterranean Sea, the Sinai Peninsula, the nation of Lebanon and the Jordan River to the east. Those borders are being blurred and erased by, of all people, the Europeans who should have no business in Israeli affairs beyond assisting with any agreement and not the financing the illegal building of settlements in Area C as set in the Oslo Accords, but when it comes to Europe what is a little item like the entire validity of the reference to another separate state taken out of Israel’s hide. After all, did not the United States with added pressures from the European Union and many of its member States and the United Nations with a large assistance from the Arab League force Israel from Gaza presumably given over to the Arab run Palestinian Authority (PA) who in turn lost it in a coup to the terrorist organization Hamas? What does it matter that the PA lost control of the lands within the first half of the decade after receiving it from Israel and would likely lose the remainder to the Islamic State leading to an inevitability of a major war between Israel and the Islamic State. Perhaps this is President Obama’s actual secret plan to get the Islamic State removed from its Middle East component and showing them to be weak thus destroying their credibility. With the European powers out of North Africa and the Middle East thus ending their colonial rule across the region, still, Israel remained and had joined the nations of the Middle East after its colonizing power, Great Britain, finally packed up and went home. That Israel too had been held as a colony by the British and had fought the colonizing power in order to receive their independence at an even later date than had most, if not all, of the others.

 

So that brings us to the final question, why is Israel referred to as a colonizing power? That can be answered in three distinct and observable steps. The first is the discounting of the Arab population within Israel and their relative freedom and equality to their Jewish counterparts. What about the lack of freedom of the Arab Palestinians? Are they not colonized? No, they are not colonized but a sizeable number were forced to move into the region when Jordan illegally held the lands they called the West Bank which they conquered during the 1948-9 War to Eradicate the Jews and Israel. The Israelis claim they won that war as they survived while the Arab and Muslim powers claim it as a partial victory because they gained land and it ftr their new idea of eliminating Israel in stages. Their next genocidal attack meant to push the Jews into the sea fell somewhat short as they had lost the lands gained from the 1948-9 War in the June 1967 Six Day War which left Israel back to their Jordan River border, gained and annexed the Golan Heights, gained and returned the entirety of the Sinai Peninsula which is an area vastly larger than Israel itself. The 1973 Yom Kippur War left the borders exactly as they were after Israel agreed to return the lands she had gained in that conflict. When making their peace with Egypt, Israel returned the entirety of the Sinai Peninsula. A subsequent peace treaty with Jordan returned the occupied areas of Judea and Samaria to Israel. This is what led soon thereafter to the claims that the lands which Jordan had occupied and lost/returned to Israel plus the lands the “colonial power Israel had stolen in 1948” be returned to Arab rule under the name of Palestine. This was where the label of colonizing power Israel began and was given world-wide acceptance. This was latched onto by the Europeans as it lifted any accusations that they had colonized that area of the Middle East as it was Israel imposing colonial occupations.

 

Then there was the super power status Israel gained through advancing her economy from a mostly agrarian economy to one of the best hi-tech start-up nations realized and noted as the leader in many areas in these fields. This tied the Israeli economy to be based on production and as an equal against the Europeans and having a democratic government where the democracy functions and is not a sham which elects the people in power back into those same positions. This difference makes Israel also appear more European if not actually American thus they must be from another place to have these great economic and technical excellence, thus Israel must be a colonizing influence. The final one is the easiest as it takes almost no explanation. The Palestinians, as noted above, have sold a willing world on the idea that Israel has stolen their lands despite the fact that proves the influx of Arabs coincided with the improving technology and economic engines churning out opportunities. But when the Arabs were returned to Yasser Arafat rule they returned to their dictatorial manner simply allowing him and Mahmoud Abbas to take as much of the world’s generous funding as they could get away with. This led to an entrapped Arab Palestinian culture where elections were no longer held and it was Abbas who refused as fear he would not be able to control them and Hamas or worse might defeat him and that would end his comfortable position lording over the peasant Palestinians while blaming Israel for every shortcoming and the Israeli colonization of the Arab Palestinians. This has been accepted in the United Nations due to rabid anti-Semitism, accepted in the European Union and amplified in many individual nations all riding on a sea of anti-Semitism. Much of the rest of the world has been shown to harbor anti-Semitic ideas and views simply because the first world media set the tone for the debate and much of it denounces Israel as a Jewish oppression of the Arab Palestinians and presents the story with a good stoking of anti-Semitism.

That leaves the United States where the claim is they are free of anti-Semitism, they only hold that Israeli policies are on an errant track. Israel, it is claimed, relies too heavily on the sword using it to victimize the Arabs who are only aiming rockets at Israel in volleys totaling over one-hundred per day before Israel acts. Who could call that excessive use and reliance on force? Well, there is one who is amongst the founders of the NGO named J-Street, a self-proclaimed pro-Israel while also pro-Peace, pro-Human Rights and other warm catch phrased opinions just so loved as you go further and further to the leftist extremes where all must yield to multi-cultural ideals which have worked so well in Europe. Hint, the Europe they envision remains intact and unthreatened as it was 1920s on La Rive Gauche with the famed artists and author/poets of the day lounging in decadent Paris, all so sophisticated and correct in language and style, carrying themselves with that particular aristocratic style, oh, all was and could be so again if only we were allowed to rule the world, the universe itself. But of course the problem is, as always, Jews messing things up, namely those Israeli boors. Their unsophisticated uses of force, if they would only compromise and give the Palestinians what they want, demand. Perhaps a short video showing that founding member of J-Street in an interview, a short except will clarify everything as if a picture equals a thousand words, a video must equal a gazillion words.

 

 

 

 

Yes, you heard him correctly, Israel defending herself bad, dissolving Israel good, Jews being nationless with nowhere to go when the tides reach the United States and then as things change inalterably they will cry, “It can’t happen here.” These self-defeating Jews will hold on to their copy of the First Amendment while shunning the entirety of the Second Amendment and then wonder how they ended up in a camp just for Jews. They will go to their deaths condemning Israel claiming, “If only those Jews, the Israeli ones, if only they had put down their swords then none of this would have happened.” All they needed do was fall on their sword for the good of the secular Jews who were so worldly and above it all sophisticated. “It can’t happen here.” Oft followed by, “What, move along? Hey, no need to scream, I heard you, I’m moving, I’m moving. How did we end up here?” Yet still they will claim this is different than before, they won’t be executing us, no, they cannot just murder us, after all, it can’t happen here.” For all too many they will be facing a line of men with machine guns and asked if they wish a hood over their head, and they will reply, “No, what for, you can’t do this.” When asked why such can’t happen when it is obviously happening, they will exclaim with their last breath, “It can’t happen here.” They believe that anti-Semitism is dead but it is alive and well and entrenching itself since the 1960s and 1970s in the worst place, the universities. It has been creeping into the military and will march its way into every profession and they will all be comfortable in their anti-Semitism. That does not mean they will actively persecute the Jew but when the government moves to mark Jewish goods into classifications of good Israel vs. bad Israel the first step has been taken. The European Union enacted such a procedure and will now get each nation to comply and a response came from the United States where they said we can do so as well and our law over this is an old promise made into law under State Department pressures in the 1990s. We just needed to write a prescribed regulation and done, it may as well be our first step, but that first step was taken long ago even before the destruction of the World Trade Center.

It was well before Israel from Gaza, even before it was withheld that Sirhan Sirhan who murdered Robert Kennedy was a self-proclaimed Palestinian Arab from Lebanon and he murdered Robert Kennedy because Kennedy was too pro-Israel. It was all in his confession but redacted for years. It was not when the United States placed an arms embargo on Israel in 1948-9 when she needed arms to survive. Czechoslovakia provided the lion’s share. It might have been when the United States refused to take in Jews trying to escape the Nazi extermination camps or the steamer the St. Louis with her nine-hundred-thirty plus Jews refused entry to the United States. Perhaps those were the initial sign as I have a feeling anti-Semitism was sewn into the first American flag as the seeds were there waiting to sprout and sooner or later they were going to grow, and they did. It was those who in sermons blamed the Jews for everything, of from economic difficulty to the murder of Jesus, the reasons are from antiquity with embellishments that are modern but it is and always will be and that is the reason for Israel being vital as without Jews there can be no salvation in the Judeo-Christian World. It is that simple and to my fellow Jews speaking ill of Israel, be careful what you wish for as Hashem will make your words choke in your throat some day and that will come when you realize how much you need an Israel because, for you, it can happen here or anywhere, and when you finally see that you will beg Israel to accept you.

A Gauntlet Thrown at the United States Feet

 

Reportedly a Russian General strode into the United States Embassy in Baghdad, Iraq and demanded to speak with somebody responsible for military actions and handed the officer a letter after which some curt words were exchanged and the Russian left without further explanation. It has been further reported that there has been a Russian demand that the United States cease all air activity and cease and desist any sorties in the greater Syrian theater or risk a confrontation with Russian aircraft who have orders to defend against United States interference, or so it appears was the implication. Other rumored reports claim that the Russian bombing runs today were concentrated on the areas occupied not by the Islamic State but on the Syrian “rebels” which were trained and working with the United States. This we believe is somewhat a bit of hyperbole as the latest reports claimed that the United States efforts had produced less than two dozen fighters after two years and countless investment in time, money and equipment and that does not sound like anything that would require more than one airstrike. The likelihood is that the Russians were hitting the rebels who oppose Bashir al-Assad which would include potential strikes on United States trained fighters, especially with reports from this past week that they were trading much of their United States provided aid in exchange for free passage through other rebel groups areas in order to avoid a fight which they would likely have lost. So, with the United States continuing to fly sorties, though how few is uncertain, and the Russians presumably threatening to protect Assad and his Alawites and their coastal region from United States air attacks, the question is would the United States attack Assad troops and position or simply contain their strikes to Islamic State positions. Another problem might become a point of contention is if the United States aircraft on missions necessarily cross over Assad’s regions would the Russians attempt to down the United States flights and if such should happen, what would be the reaction from the White House and the Congress.

 

There are too many questions and such complete uncertainty with far too few sources of information to base any hypotheses upon with any degree of accuracy; but why not just fly off the handle and take a stab at this situation and see what we produce and judge it later down the road. Apparently the Pentagon plans to continue with their missions as assigned and ignore the Russian threats probably hoping that it was just so much bluster and sabre rattling. Putin probably feels quite certain that should he push hard enough that President Obama would back down just as he did with the red line fiasco with Assad and the use of chemical weapons which President Putin saved Obama’s bacon as he stewed in pools of indecision and slow and repeated retreats. This is what Putin is basing his boldness upon and has no reason, from the track record which President Obama has compiled, to think differently. The problem is with the Iran deal beginning to tarnish already under the microscope of public opinion, President Obama may be seeking some strong armed acts which he can rebuild some form of foreign policy and military prowess legacy. A desperate man with the clock running out might prove too irrational and unpredictable for anybody to make a safe bet on what actions might be now considered worth the risk. When President Jimmy Carter found himself looking weak he attempted a rescue of the hostages held by Iran and the mission ended in tragedy and dead United States troops including Special Forces and Navy Seals if I remember correctly. A desperate Administration still seeking an uncontested foreign policy legacy which has hung its final shot on degrading the Islamic State and forcing regime change in Syria necessarily removing Bashir al-Assad from being in contention in that process. The Iranians, Hezballah and now Russia have staked their claim to Syria and restoring al-Assad to power and then holding a Syrian election where al-Assad will win reelection by sufficient margin to remove any doubt to his authenticity no matter how unverified the election numbers might be. The Russians have made one thing very clear, despite the overt efforts of the Obama White House’s demands for Assad to be removed from power and not permitted to run in any new elections, as the United States has Assad tried and convicted for his abuses of the men and women who had remained in Syria living in rebel occupied areas and presumed to have joined or be supporting the rebels even if all they were doing was protecting their home and limit their losses, just attempting to survive and not actually backing either side, the two sides will continue to butt heads until President Obama realizes the error of his ways, or so Putin is adamant. The United States does not actually have a dog in this fight while the Russians most definitely have their own pet dog in the fray, Bashir al-Assad, along with Hezballah and Iran, and a potential route towards gaining control over Iraq and Europe and the land bridges between them. The Iranians basically told the world what was the reason and against whom his forces are fighting for and this has been further validated through their actions. The enemy in Syria are the best training facilities built by the Soviet Union back before their break-down and Assad accepted the assistance from the many different sides thus making himself largely responding to the demands and instruction of Russian forces assisting and supplying the tools required to draw Israel into the fight.

 

This multiple fractioned war has coalitions which can be instructive as to who sides with whom and who are the actual players. The initial two sides have all but been destroyed or subsumed by their original parent groups. The Syrian forces of Bashir al-Assad have reacted strongly but with lesser and older weapons than has the Islamic State. The forces fighting with al-Assad currently are the remainder of his military who have stood by his side and watched their power and nation be laid waste and been unable to prevent this horror story. The immediate allies for al-Assad have been Hezballah and originally Iran who are the actual puppet masters working the marionettes. Their final benefactor, forced by the precarious situation faced by Assad and his allies as they had been defeated across the boards, the Russians have jumped into the fray with both feet betting that the United States will accept Russians determining the end results in Syria or be forced to face the Islamic State with little if any assistance from the remaining forces in Iraq as well as Syria using almost universally United States fighting men and women on the ground. The opposition breaks into three distinct groups, the social-Marxists consisting of the leftist forces whose desire was to restructure Syria into a model leftist socialist state. Then there were the Islamist supremacy groups which include all the various factions of al-Qaeda to the Muslim Brotherhood fighting against al-Assad in a semi-symbiotic relationship with the social-Marxists. Then there is the breakaway force which sees itself as the sole preordained leader of all Sunni and eventually all Muslim forces under their self-proclaimed Caliphate. That is the most basic description of the breakdown of the forces before the Russians responded to the sad state of the Alawite troops losses which threatened complete bombing began to systematically strike at the anti-al-Assad forces including the rebels trained by the United States. There are also the forces known as the Islamic State which appear to be a problem to everybody not an active subscriber to their radical agenda who claim they are the core of the new Caliphate. The end result is this self-proclaimed Caliph and his forces will continue to grow unless somebody is forced into committing troops to prevent such advances. From appearances President Obama had been attempting to prevent any large contingent to coalesce around the United States enemies, as well as to force al-Assad from power, without committing any United States ground troops, a tactic which has died gloriously just as predicted and allowed, if not forced, the Russians to appear. This forced Russia to declare their interests and willingness to enforce their side by any and all means required. This will settle the situation in favor of al-Assad by default. The problem is this may not go far enough to eradicate the Islamic State which could surrender their Syrian holdings rather than contend with the Russian troops and simply continue their expansions through Iraq and potentially further throughout the region.

 

 

Obama Kerry believe greatest threat to world peace war criminal worst human rights record United States enemy responsible for all wars in Middle East and North Africa is Netanyahu

 

The big, and we mean really big, question is what steps if any will the United States take from the Russian demands they leave the area. Will President Obama press a confrontation and how will he react when any actions, especially sorties flown by United States Air Force and Navy pilots are challenged over Syrian air space and warned to retreat and never return as their assistance is not required nor desired. Will President Obama press the situation to its breaking point of the Russians shooting down an American aviator and taking the pilot prisoner which could happen today of that is the way the cards are being laid out on the table. This current situation with the direct confrontation being pressed and the game of chicken and who will blink first begins. If the glares never blink the other result is a war between Russia and the United States and all the potential ramifications of such a conflict come into play. Our bet is it will get extremely tense and at the last minute some facilitation will be found or Putin will blink first as President Obama is not calling the shots for the United States or he would have turned and run from the first threats as he has done every time he has been challenged. This situation is as serious as or more so than has been played in the media and the media may try to prevent things from boiling over but they will find that beyond their control or even influence. The media can only exacerbate the problem and send things spinning out of control even faster. That is what they must avoid at all costs.
