50 US Diplomats Call for War with Russia (but not a single one is named)

It’s hard to know precisely what to make of the latest propaganda being spoon-fed to the public regarding Syria. Supposedly 50 war mongers in the State Department have signed onto an “internal memo” calling for US airstrikes against the Syrian Arab Army–which essentially would mean war with Russia if it were to occur–but not a single news story mentions who these people are.
We are told only that they are “career diplomats,” but of the lower-ranking order. Their names, however, are not given. Nonetheless they reputedly are gravely concerned about the current state of affairs in Syria (where, I would remind readers, the Syrian Army, with Russian air support, is on the verge of retaking Raqqa, the so-called capital of the Islamic State). So concerned are they in fact that they have composed this memo, folded it into the shape of a paper airplane, and tossed it into the State Department’s “dissent channel,” we are told.
And guess what? The reasoning of these faceless people, as spelled out in their memo manifesto, precisely adheres to the same propaganda line peddled by the Zionist media. Imagine that! According to this line of thought, Bashar Assad is a brutal dictator who kills his own people and who simply has to be overthrown in order for there to be peacein the Middle East (just as, presumably, removing Moammar Gaddafi brought peace to Libya), and, well…gas pipelines and the interests of Israel–none of this has anything to do with it!
Here’s a passage from a CNN report on the matter:
The memo calls on the U.S. to create a stronger partnership with moderate rebel forces to battle both Assad’s forces and ISIS, which would change the tide of the conflict against the regime and “increase the chances for peace by sending a clear signal to the regime and its backers that there will be no military solution to the conflict.”
It also warns that as the regime “continues to bomb and starve” Syria’s Sunni population, the U.S. will lose potential allies among Syria’s Sunni population to fight ISIS. Moreover, it says, U.S. failure to stop the regime’s abuses “undermines both morally and materially the unity of the anti-Daesh coalition” and “will only bolster the ideological appeal of groups such as Daesh, even as they endure tactical setbacks on the battlefield.”
In other words, we have to get rid of Assad or ISIS will grow stronger and likely carry out more attacks in the West–maybe even in your town!
In the view of these anonymous State Department officials, the problem is not the state sponsors of terrorism who have been supporting ISIS. No.  The problem is the Syrian government and its allies, who have done more than anyone else in the world to defeatISIS. These are the “culprits” US military forces should fight a war against.
Fantastic as it sounds, this is the story being given us by the mainstream media today.

Russia’s Response to US-NATO Expansionism. “Hot War”, “New Cold War”, or “Partnership in Resolving Global Problems”

Global Research, June 17, 2016
Coping with NATO’s recent aggressive behavior has been unquestionably the most important issue on the Russian foreign policy agenda, an issue around which all other issues revolve. Considering that NATO is a military alliance, Russia’s responses have necessarily been military in nature so as to find a way out of the current crisis in a way consistent with Russia’s national interests.
From Moscow’s perspective, the relationship with NATO can take one of five forms, in reverse order of desirability:
  1. Hot, “shooting” war.
  2. Post-“color revolution” Russia as a raw materials colony of the West, deprived of its sovereignty, industry, and great power status.
  3. Another “cold war” accompanied by hybrid conflicts, covert warfare, proxy struggles, arms races, and military forward deployments.
  4. Armed neutrality, in which Russia and NATO delineate and respect their corresponding spheres of influence and have no further interaction, for better or worse.
  5. Partnership in resolving global problems.
Needless to say, at the moment the Russia-NATO relationship is close to the “cold war” stage as a result of the Kiev coup d’etat and “color revolutions” being promoted not just against Russia’s allies and neighbors but also against Russia itself. Since the idea of a Russia-NATO partnership seems inconceivable at the moment, and will remain so for as long as the Obama/Cameron/Merkel/Erdogan/Hollande crew is calling the shots in NATO (though that situation could radically change in the next several years, due to term limits, electoral challenges, and all-round unpopularity), the goal of Russia’s policy has been to ratchet the tension down to the level of “armed neutrality” while at the same time preparing for the worst–a “hot war”.
Already the ancient Romans knew that “si vis pacem, para bellum”–if you wish peace, prepare for war. Which means that Russia’s military responses have centered at establishing a credible deterrence posture while at the same time signalling the readiness to ratchet down the level of military confrontation. It is not an easy task–one of the lessons of the late 1940s is that responses to crises at hand which are intended to be temporary can quickly become permanent and lock succeeding leaders and administrations into the confrontation which is then passed on, as it were, from generation to generation.
Russian actions also indicate that NATO is not viewed as a unitary actor, which indeed it is not. There is the US, there is also Germany and France, there is Poland and the Baltics, and of course there is Turkey. Each of those sets of countries represents a faction within NATO with its all interests and the ability to pursue them independently of the rest of NATO. It would be a mistake to believe that Warsaw, Ankara, Berlin, Paris, etc.,  all take their orders from Washington. Nevertheless, they do have a certain commonality of interests, for otherwise NATO would have long fallen apart. In regards to Washington, the structure of preferences looks something like this, again, in reverse order of preferability:
  1. Hot, “shooting” war.
  2. Another “cold war” accompanied by hybrid conflicts, covert warfare, proxy struggles, arms races, and military forward deployments.
  3. Partnership in resolving global problems.
  4. Armed neutrality, in which Russia and NATO delineate and respect their corresponding spheres of influence and have no further interaction, for better or worse.
  5. Post “color revolution” Russia as a raw materials colony of the West, deprived of its sovereignty, industry, and great power status.
The current predatory model of capitalism that the West is pursuing means the West’s priorities at the moment are quite incompatible with that of Russia. . Western regime change policies are driven by economic imperialism, pure and simple, though nicely disguised as “globalization”. It is simply colonialism through indirect, local rule, whose aim is to yield economic benefits to the Western powers at the expense of the “neo-colonies”. It means that, fortunately, Western powers are leery of another prolonged “cold war” because of the sheer expense that would be associated with it.
Therefore if Russia is to persuade the West that “armed neutrality” is actually desirable, it has to show the ability to engage in a prolonged “cold war” and even a “shooting war” if need be, while at the same time demonstrating its resilience against “color revolutions”. It is admittedly debatable whether armed neutrality is preferable to partnership, from NATO’s perspective. It would appear the West is opposed to cooperation with Russia on matters like international terrorism simply because the West doesn’t view terrorism as the problem. If anything, Russia’s participation in resolving the problem would mean Western “spoils of war” would be greatly reduced. We have seen the West’s twisted priorities in action in Syria, after all.
Given the problem at hand, the various and disparate military measures undertaken by the Russian Federation in the last couple of years that have been chronicled in various issues of the Russia Defense Report should be viewed as pieces of a larger puzzle.
Thus the creation of the Russian Guard is intended to show the West that “color revolution” strategies are bound to fail when used against Russia. Re-establishing Ground Forces’ divisions and even Tank Armies, in addition to the Airborne Forces’ expansion, sends a message to the Baltic States and Poland plus any NATO countries contemplating establishing military presence in these countries  that there is no way NATO can attain conventional superiority over Russia in that part of the world. Potential deployments of Iskander and Kalibr missiles to Kaliningrad and Crimea sends a message to NATO countries further afield, including Germany, France, and Turkey, that they can’t count on staying above the fray–the long arm of Russia’s conventional deterrence can reach them too.  Finally, the US is being put on notice that any effort to undermine Russia’s nuclear deterrent will face a multifaceted response of targeting anti-ballistic missile sites and deploying new ICBMs and SLBMs that can overcome and/or bypass US missile defenses.
Is this approach, now at least two years in the offing, working? It is too early to say, though the upcoming Warsaw NATO summit will no doubt shed some light on NATO preferences. For now, the apparent unwillingness to commit to permanent troop basing in Eastern Europe and favoring troop rotations instead (which will no doubt prove very onerous for the thinly stretched, demoralized, and underfunded NATO land forces that have not recovered from the Afghanistan and Iraq debacles) suggests that the “armed neutrality” is at least being considered in NATO high councils. On the other hand, should the West’s apparently terminal economic crisis take a turn to the worse, there is no telling what NATO might do in desperation. For that reason, one should not expect anything better than Russia-NATO “armed neutrality” for many years to come, until the West adopts a more sustainable economic model that is not dependent on constant aggression.

Now U.S. regime ask Russia not to bomb al-Nusra ~ Sergey Lavrov: “U.S. seems to want to use al-Nusra to overthrow al-Assad”

The United States seems to want al-Nusra Front terrorist group to remain in some form in Syria and use it to achieve own goals, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Thursday.
ST. PETERSBURG (Sputnik) ~ Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov urged the US earlier this month to convince those rebel groups which they support in Syria to leave areas where al-Nusra Front militants are present.
Earlier, Washington asked Moscow to direct its airstrikes solely at al-Nusra Front and refrain from targeting so-called “moderate” rebels, working with al-Qaeda’s branch in Syria.
“The Americans are now saying that they are unable to remove the ‘good’ opposition members from the positions held by al-Nusra Front, and that they will need another two-three months. I am under the impression that there is a game here and they may want to keep al-Nusra Front in some form and later use it to overthrow the [Assad] regime,” Lavrov said at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.
The US-Russian brokered ceasefire entered into force on ceasefire agreement came into force across Syria on February 27. Terrorist organizations such the Daesh and al-Nusra Front are excluded from the truce.



Washington’s Achilles Heel in Syria:
Why US Asked Russia Not to Bomb Nusra

In a slight turn of events, Washington asked Moscow to direct its airstrikes solely at al-Nusra Front and refrain from targeting so-called “moderate” rebels, working with al-Qaeda’s branch in Syria, but, Russian officials and experts have said it is not rational since these militants are coordinating attacks against government forces and civilians.
(Sputnik) ~ In other words, those who work with al-Nusra Front even if they do so from time to time are de facto not moderate – whether they are described as such or not.
“The Obama Administration thus continues with the fiction that there are completely separate, vetted, moderate rebels who are dedicated to creating an inclusive, multi-cultural, multi-confessional, secular and democratic Syria as soon as both [Daesh] and the Assad government are defeated,” political analyst Daniel McAdams, Executive Director of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, noted ironically.
On Friday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov urged the US to convince those rebel groups which they support in Syria to leave areas where al-Nusra Front militants are present. The Americans “are telling us not to hit [al-Nusra Front], because there is ‘normal’ opposition next to it,” the diplomat said. “But that opposition must leave terrorists’ positions, we long have agreed on that.”
In fact, this agreement was reached months ago, but it has not been implemented yet, making counterterrorism efforts in Syria less efficient.
Interestingly, both Moscow and Washington view al-Nusra Front as a terrorist organization. In this context, distancing itself from al-Qaeda’s offshoot should have been a non-issue for what Russian officials often have referred to as “patriotic” opposition. Why are they not severing ties will al-Qaeda then?
Some have tried to defend these groups by saying that they have been forced to stay with al-Nusra Front.
“To be sure, it has been clear for years that the US-allied anti-Assad rebels in Syria lean on al-Qaeda’s military prowess for their survival. Some US officials stress that Nusra and opposition forces currently are working together on occasion and that such cooperation is not born out of shared ideology but practical wartime necessity,” the Daily Beast asserted.
But what wartime necessity could justify killing civilians? For instance, in May, al-Nusra Front and Ahrar al-Sham, a group that the US considers to be moderate, killed 19 civilians in a joint attack on the Alawite village of Zara, located in the Hama province.
“They killed elderly people, took children and women as captives,” Abdou Khalifa, a villager wounded in the attack, told RT last month. Another villager, Munzer Qasem, referred to the attack as a massacre. “I heard of two or three entire families killed. Abu Naval’s family was killed. He was an old man and was killed together with his daughters. They were slaughtered in their own house.”
Meanwhile, al-Nusra Front have managed to regroup and resupply, taking advantage of the nationwide ceasefire and “moderate” rebels in their midst, the Russian Ministry of Defense reported on Saturday.
In the last few days they have launched attacks on Aleppo, Syria’s second largest city, as well as Ard al-Wata, Rasha and Kinsibba in the ‪‎Latakia‬ province, Tesnin in the Homs province, Marj al-Sultan in the Damascus province and the northern region of al-Manshiya neighborhood in the ‪‎Daraa‬ province.
The latest assaults claimed the lives of more than 270 civilians.
“Why is no one asking why … moderates would want to associate themselves with al-Qaeda in the first place? Why do they seek to integrate into al-Qaeda command structures? How are they not to be considered ducks when they walk like ducks and quack like ducks?” Daniel McAdams asked.

Dancing in Syria and Dancing in Turky

[ Ed. note – I wonder how long this dance school would remain open should America’s “moderate rebels” succeed in seizing power in Syria. The Syrian people go on exhibiting amazing resilience in the face of attacks upon their country by proxy terrorist armies funded by the usual suspects (we all know who they are), as meanwhile the Western media continue to preach to us that Assad is a brutal dictator who “kills his own people,” etc., etc…. Yes! A brutal, brutaldictator who kills hundreds of thousands of his own people–but who allows dancing schools to remain open! Sounds a bit of an anomaly. But maybe the Daily Beast has an explanation readily available they’d care to share with us.
At any rate, on to some late breaking news. You could maybe call this portion of today’s post the “Dancing in Turkey” section. RT reporter Lizzie Phelan has crossed the border into Turkey and is filing a series of reports this week on ISIS activities, including the digging of trenches, which the Turkish government doesn’t seem overly concerned about stopping. ]

‘Turkey the Only One Supporting us’: Syrian Rebel Siding with Islamists on Ankara’s Role

© Mohamad Bayoush
While civilians who still live on the Turkish-Syrian border suffer from Islamic State attacks and blame Turkish army inaction, so-called moderate rebels of the Free Syrian Army, fighting side-by-side with Islamist extremists, openly admit Ankara’s support.
RT’s Lizzie Phelan visited the Turkish town of Karkamis, located on the border with Syria just opposite the area controlled by Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL). She spoke with locals residents, refugees and militants, who described the role Turkey has allegedly played in fostering and supporting both Syrian rebels and Islamist extremists.
Many Karkamis residents were forced to flee the town and find a home elsewhere because of the danger they faced from ISIS attacks across the border.
Turkey’s efforts to increase security, which were largely limited to building a wall that cut off the local cross-border trade, have led to majority of shops being boarded up and abandoned, Lizzie Phelan reported from the town.
Those who stayed include Syrian refugees who managed to escape ISIS jihadists in Syria. However, they do not believe the danger is over, as ISIS shells and bullets reach them even in Turkey’s Karkamis.
Aysel Yilmaz, a refugee from the Syrian town of Jarablus, spoke to RT and described her lucky escape from across the border, adding that she still feels very unsafe. Yilmaz said she was seriously wounded while visiting her father’s grave in Karkamis. The bullet came from ISIS fighters shooting from Syria.
“We were by my father’s grave right over there, they fired shots from the other part and I got hit. There were some people trying to escape from the other side, they were the target but I was also hit,” Yilmaz said. “I was treated in hospital, at first for 15 days, and then again for another 10 days. I had surgery twice, my lung was wounded. I still suffer so much.”
A very contrasting account was given to Phelan by a fighter from the Syrian opposition, who openly admitted receiving help from Turkey and seamlessly crossing into Syria every two weeks. The conversation also gives an insight into how casual the relations of the so-called moderates are with Islamist groups siding with internationally recognized terrorists, but not recognized as terrorists by Turkey or the West.

“Turkey is the only one supporting us. We are very grateful for their help,” the fighter told Phelan.
When asked what groups he is fighting along, the man mentioned“Jabhat Al Shamiye, the Sultan Murad Division, the Sham Legion and Ahrar al-Sham.”
Ahrar al-Sham has been accused of slaughtering civilians around Aleppo earlier in June, while Russia has repeatedly pointed to the groups’ brotherly ties with Al-Nusra Front terrorists.
Turkish journalist and columnist for Al-Monitor Fehim Tastekin told RT that Al-Nusra uses other groups, such as Ahrar al-Sham, as proxies to distribute weapons “coming from Turkey.” Tastekin added that “they also share money in the same way.”
Reports of the Turkish government’s ties with Islamic State have surged in recent months, with some alleging that Erdogan is supporting the terror group so that it would help remove his geopolitical rival, Syrian President Bashar Assad.
Others point out that Turkey chooses to be involved in the Syrian conflict to beat Kurdish fighters, who are one of the few successful forces when it comes to battling against Islamic State.
“[Kurdish fighters] didn’t attack Turkey, instead, they secured our borders against ISIS, and we need to thank the Kurdish fighters. Turkey’s fear is baseless and because of that policy, Turkey is indirectly helping ISIS. Turkish policy is also delaying the elimination of ISIS. This is not an option which is beneficial for us, for Turkey, for the region, for the people of Syria,” Tastekin said.
In Phelan’s previous report from the Turkish-Syrian border, she spoke to witnesses in Karkamis, who revealed that the Turkish military has been ordered to ignore Islamic State’s activities on the border, allowing the jihadists to dig trenches and plant mines.
In March, an RT Documentary crew visited Shaddadi along with other towns in northern Syria. The trip was scheduled shortly after the towns’ liberation from ISIS fighters. Upon arriving, the journalists discovered invoices detailing the large-scale illegal oil trade carried out by jihadists with Turkey, as well as Islamist propaganda brochures printed in Turkey.
The RT crew also managed to get footage of passports of deceased and escaped jihadists, who had stamps issued at Turkish border checkpoints, proving that they crossed into Syria through Turkey.
Another report from May showed that Islamic State militants injured on the Syrian battlefield regularly traveled to Turkey to receive costly and complicated medical treatment. The information was leaked via tapped phone calls and was handed to the media by opposition MP Erem Erdem.

Moscow slaps israel in the face ~ Zionists and New World Order agents encountered an unmovable object: Russia

NWO agents had convinced themselves that they were an unstoppable force, killing men and women and children at will and literally destroying any country they do not like in the Middle East. But they have encountered an unmovable object: Russia

Russia to Benjamin Netanyahu:
Take Your Pick—Carrots or Sticks?

Vladimir Putin has been true to his word. Some people think that he is a Zionist shill and he is just in the business to protect the oligarchs. One Russian commenter keeps sending me weird stuff about Putin and I had to stop responding because he did not make any sense whatsoever. When I challenged him to present his case in a coherent manner so that I could address it at VT, he refused.
In any event, whatever you may think of Putin, you will be dishonest to say that he did not really challenge the New World Order in Syria. New World Order agents wanted to slaughter Assad just like they exterminated Gaddafi.
NWO agents had convinced themselves that they were an unstoppable force, killing men and women and children at will and literally destroying any country they do not like in the Middle East. As Jewish Neocon Jonah Goldberg himself put it
“Every ten years or so, the United States needs to pick up some small crappy little country and throw it against the wall, just to show the world we mean business.”[1]
For Goldberg, perpetual wars in the Middle East, not peaceful resolutions and fruitful dialogue, are the ways to get ahead. “There is nothing we want to see happen in the Middle East that can be accomplished through talking around long tables festooned with bottled water and fresh fruit at Swiss hotels,” he wrote, “that cannot be accomplished faster and more permanently through war. But there is plenty that cannot be achieved by such gabfests that can only be achieved through war.”[2]
In that sense, Goldberg is a political Talmudist, and here is how he fleshed out his Talmudic ideology:
“Wouldn’t an invasion of Iraq result in instability in the region? Yes. But in this context, instability is more likely to be good than bad.”[3] Goldberg called the debacle in Iraq “a worthy mistake.”[4]
The logic is pretty clear: Goldberg wants to see blood flowing all over the Middle East, especially in Iraq. Fulfilling an essentially Talmudic dream is more important than the lives of Iraqis. Obviously Goldberg and his brethren would have been happy if they could create the same mess in Syria. In fact, Goldberg has nothing good say about Assad.[5] Moreover, he (deliberately) believed the lie that Assad did use chemical weapons on his own people and therefore the United States should have gone to war.[6]
But Goldberg and other NWO agents obviously have encountered an unmovable object: Russia. Putin has “personally assured Bashar Al-Assad that Russia will not let the Syrian government lose the civil war,”[7] and Putin has methodically done his best to bring fire and brimstone to ISIS in the region.
This has obviously split Washington into two camps. Some in Washington think that Russia is bad and others think that further aggressive move against the country is not good for the U.S.[8]
The fact is that no one has denied that Russia has progressively become a force to be reckoned with. That was one reason why Ash Carter himself said last November that Russia and China are “challenging the world order.”[9]
More recently, “Russian combat engineers, clearing the Syrian city of Palmyra of explosives left behind by Islamic State jihadists, have discovered and defused ‘one of the largest jihadist arsenals’ of more than 12,000 explosive devices.”[10]
It is also undeniable that Israel aspired to get rid of Assad and replace him with a bogeyman since the beginning of the war. That Israel preferred ISIS or Al-Qaeda or al-Nusra over the Assad government is also not in dispute.[11]
But Assad is still in power, which means that the New World Order ideology in Syria failed miserably and pathetically. It has become so pathetic that the Neocons have been a little quiet about it since the past two weeks. After all, they had a vested interested in ousting Assad and had poured multiplied millions of taxpayer dollars in abetting terrorists in the region. Putin killed that diabolical mission. Benjamin Netanyahu is obviously aware of this, therefore he has to move to Plan B.
The mad man in Tel Aviv has recently been to Russia and hopelessly tried to issue a warning to Putin that Israel must retain the Golan Heights, which were aggressively seized by Israel in 1967. Netanyahu also maintained that he wants to cooperate with Russia in order to ameliorate the situation in Syria. Big lie.
If Netanyahu really wants things to go well in the region, all he has to do is tell Washington, his puppet, to stop funding the Syrian rebels/terrorists and make peace with Assad. So, the mad man lied again. In fact, Israeli ambassador Michael Oren said the opposite of what Netanyahu is saying here.
“The initial message about the Syrian issue was that we always wanted [President] Bashar Assad to go,” said Oren in 2013. “We always preferred the bad guys who weren’t backed by Iran to the bad guys who were backed by Iran.”[12]
Oren again agreed that the Syrian rebels, ISIS, and al-Nusra “are pretty bad guys, still, the greatest danger to Israel is by the strategic arc that extends from Tehran, to Damascus to Beirut. And we saw the Assad regime as the keystone in that arc. That is a position we had well before the outbreak of hostilities in Syria. With the outbreak of hostilities we continued to want Assad to go.”[13]
Netanyahu is politically naked here, and serious people know this. He does not want things to get better in Syria at all. What he meant to say is that he wants Assad gone. Since that is not happening, he has to move to a comfortable territory. He said,
“We will not go back to the days when they fired at our communities and at our children from atop the Heights. Therefore, with or without a [Syrian] agreement, the Golan Heights will remain under Israeli sovereignty.”[14]
The Kremlin seemed to have given the mad man in Tel Aviv two choices: carrots or sticks. “The Kremlin later commented on Netanyahu’s statement, with Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov saying ‘Russia’s position has not changed in any way…’ Peskov said Russia’s position on the Golan Heights continues to be ‘in line’ with the 1981 UN resolution calling for Israel to withdraw its forces from the territory.”[15]
In other words, if Netanyahu fails to eat carrots like Bugs Bunny, Russia will almost certainly use sticks to get things done. In fact, it has recently been reported that Israel was trying to interfere in Syria, but Russian jets fired back.[16] Right after the incident, it was said that Netanyahu “is now planning to better coordinate with Russia to avoid such incidents.”[17] Business Insider, another Zionist outlet, declared:
“Russian forces in Syria have fired at least twice on Israeli military aircraft, prompting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to seek improved operational coordination with Moscow, Israel’s top-selling newspaper said on Friday.”[18]
Way to go Russia. Tell the mad man to stay in Tel Avivand eat either carrots or Kosher food…or else

fallujah liberation
Fallujah has been liberated! Allahu Akbar! Jummah Mubarak! More love than any heart can handle to all the lion-souled, iron-willed Iraqi Mouqawamah moujahideen and soldiers who secured this victory in the face of an international scheme to keep MossadDaesh present in Al-Anbar Province indefinitely. This is not only a strategic achievement for our people and our heroes, but a spiritual and cultural triumph which paves the way for the “City of Mosques” to be restored as a capital of Mesopotamian Resistance against the Zionist-Imperialist project. Beware of the hasbara campaign that has already started in the likes of the Qatari tyrant’s Al-Jazeera which describes the freeing of Fallujah as “US-backed”. Nothing could be further from reality.
The American ZOG was nowhere near the former ISIS stronghold and said as much on numerous occasions that it wouldn’t get involved because of the presence of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization. The SACRIFICES that represent the foundation of this victory were made by we Iraqis and we Iraqis alone; air strikes on the Takfiri terrorists were carried out by the Iraqi Air Force; the special operations were spearheaded by Abou Azrael’s Imam Ali (A.S.) Brigade and Iraqi Counter-Terrorism troops; the on-ground, local intelligence was provided by the Sunnis of Fallujah who WELCOMED the Shi’a-led Hashd al-Shaabi, contrary to the devilry of the Western-Zionist-GCC press which even up until this very second continues to despicably say that Sunnis fear “Shi’a religious cleansing” in their city; logistics and weapons came from Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps advisors; and the entire liberation strategy was devised by none other than Quds Force Commander Qassem Suleimani.
It bears repeating: The American ZOG was nowhere to be found in Fallujah. It is ignominious beyond ignominious for Washington and Al-Jazeera to give credit where credit isn’t even remotely due but ultimately, it is utterly inconsequential; our blood splashed on their mendacious media canvas washes away the picture of untruth they’ve attempted to paint. So let it be known and let it be sung from corner to corner and yard to yard: The victory in Fallujah is Iraqi, not American. The victory in Fallujah is one for Iraqi unity, not Sunni, not Shi’a, not Christian or any other minority but ALL Iraqis irrespective of faith, sect or ethnic origin. The victory in Fallujah is one for our entire region and a massive blow to World Zionism. And there will only be more triumphs to follow.

Abadi Declares Victory over Daesh in Fallujah

Local Editor
Iraqi forces Friday entered the center of Fallujah, the Iraqi city longest held by Daesh [The Arabic Acronym for the terrorist ISIS/ ISIL group], nearly four weeks after the start of a military offensive to retake the key city.

Government troops recaptured the municipal building, though the militants still controlled a significant portion of Fallujah, an hour’s drive west of Baghdad, and many streets and houses remain mined with explosives.
Federal police raised the Iraqi state flag above the government building and continued pursuing insurgents, according to a military statement. US War Secretary Ash Carter said Iraqi forces had taken back a portion of the city, although he added: “There’s still some fighting to be done.”
Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi declared victory shortly after nightfall, as government forces continued pushing into parts of the city held by the militants. Security forces have “tightened their control inside the city and there are still some pockets that need to be cleansed in the coming hours,” he said in a brief speech on state television.
Troops could be seen coming under sniper fire earlier in the day as they entered a large mosque about 100 meters from the municipal building. Clashes also involved gunfire, artillery and aerial bombardment, sending clouds of smoke toward the sky above the city center.
Heavily armed Interior Ministry police units were advancing along Baghdad Street, the main east-west road running through the city, and commandos from the Counter-Terrorism Service had surrounded Fallujah hospital, the military statement said. Sabah al-Numani, a CTS spokesman, said on state television that snipers were holed up inside the main hospital.
Fallujah was seen as a launch pad for recent Daesh bombings in Baghdad, making the offensive a crucial part of the government’s campaign to improve security in the capital.
Addressing Fallujah’s residents, Prime Minister Abadi said in his speech: “We want there to be security and peace in this city for you to go back to live there.”
There is no place in Iraq for you and you will be punished for all the crimes you have committed. The Iraqi people are all united against you. Get out of our country, for Iraq is for Iraqis,” Abadi further said, addressing the terrorists.
