Hi All,

There has obviously been a change of regime in the US, and I don’t want to get into that whole divisive issue from a political/partisan point of view.

I would, however, like to touch on what it could mean for Syria, and globalist/military-industrial interference in that country.

Firstly, Iran. While far from perfect, it is wrongly singled out as the ‘Number one state sponsor of terror.’ This is patently false. Saudi Arabia is far and away the number one state sponsor of terror, but because Saudi Arabia is in bed with the western countries, it is largely left uncriticised. Moreover, while Iran has undoubtedly sponsored terrorists here or there, so have western countries such as the US, UK, European countries, etc. This has been extensively documented in this forum.

To get to my point, I would like to see some sort of rapprochement between Iran and the west. For the last few years, Iran has been blockaded, provoked, sanctioned, squeezed and bullied by the military-industrial complex based in Washington. But once we cut through the mainstream media propaganda, it’s clear that Iran is not as bad as western darlings like Saudi Arabia. Iran represses Christians, but tolerates their existence. Saudi Arabia does not tolerate their existence. It is illegal to be a Christian in Saudi Arabia, and the penalty is imprisonment, torture and/or death.

Saudi Arabia was also a major sponsor of ISIS, and has always been in bed with fanatics like al-queda. Iran, a Shiite nation, is a sworn enemy of ISIS/al-queda, etc. Iran has backed the Syrian government, which has protected Christians. The western nations, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Israel, etc, have all backed, to one extent or another, the fanatical Christian-killing jihadists in Syria.

In short, it would be nice to see de-escalation with Iran, but that remains to be seen. The flip side of this is Syria, where the two previous US regimes before this newest one ultimately pursued similar policies. I think the best we could probably hope for from the newest US regime is that there is no significant escalation.

That also remains to be seen. I read a very recent report of a US military build-up in and around the oil fields of eastern Syria (the US government is clearly occupying that part of the country to steel the oil. There is no other explanation). There has also been a Russian military build-up in the parts of the country that they are occupying.

While Russia, like everyone else, is also not perfect and has its own agenda, the Russian forces, unlike the western forces, are in Syria at the invitation of the Syrian government.

On top of all of this, Israel continues to act as the official air force of al-queda in Syria, continually bombing the positions of pro-Assad/pro-Iranian/anti-terrorist militias in Syria, sometimes long distances away from the Israeli border.

Of course, the best outcome for Syria, all along, would be for zero interference from outside, and for it to be left alone. This, however, is not the nature of the globalist agenda, new world order.

No articles to post today. I’ll leave it at that. All the best.

Hello Everyone,

There has obviously been a severe escalation of tension, division, corruption, hysteria, godlessness throughout the world over the last year or so.

It's going to probably get a lot worse before it finally gets better, when Jesus returns.

But I believe there has been a rare positive spot of news on the Iranian front, since the new US regime took power.

Clearly, the military-industrial complex is currently centred in Washington, and it continues to do its sinister work largely unhindered from one regime to the next, regardless of the party that happens to be currently in power at any time.

There is no reason at all to think that this is about to change. Indeed, it might get even worse.

But a rare (potential) positive front might be Iran, which was horrendously targetted over the last few years, with embargoes, sanctions, assassinations of its important people, etc. Moreover, Iran is unfairly labelled as 'The world's number one state sponsor of terror,' which, quite simply, is a bald-faced lie.

Saudi Arabia is, far and away, the world's biggest state sponsor of terror. Yet, because it is a darling of the west, it escapes criticism, or consequences of any kind. Remember, Saudi Arabia was a major backer of the Christian-killing terrorist Syrian rebels, while Iran helped the Syrian government to fight against these terrorists.

To get to my point, the US regime recently removed the (Iranian-backed) Houthi rebels in Yemen from a so-called terrorist list, and has signalled that it may cease to support the Saudi-led war in Yemen.

The Saudi war in Yemen is genocidal in nature. The Saudis have deliberately bombed civilian targets en mass, and have led an embargo against Yemen which has helped to create what the UN has referred to as the greatest humanitarian crisis in the world (possibly even worse than Syria).

There are also other possible moves afoot to de-escalate the tensions with Iran, which I believe can only be a good thing. Don't believe all the propaganda. While Iran is no angel, it is not as bad as what the media would have us believe.

I now link to a couple of articles. The first is with specific reference to the Houthi rebel situation, while the second is on the broader (potential) de-escalation with Iran. Links below:

Hi All,

A quick update. The Biden regime has seamlessly continued the policy of aggression, escalation and occupation in Syria, which was a staple of the Trump regime, which had been a staple of the Obama regime before that.

This is the nature of the military-industrial complex. Details and targets may be redefined from one regime to the next, but the war machine ultimately rages on, regardless of the ‘side of politics’ currently in power.

There was recently a US Air Force bombing of positions in Syria which belonged to pro-Assad, pro-Iran combatants, said to be ‘retaliation’ for a rocket attack in Iraq against US targets, blamed on pro-Iranian formations.

That aside, I have some news for you. There have been reports from Russian military officials, covered in Russian and Iranian media outlets, of fears that western-backed rebels in Idlib province (the only governorate still under the control of western-backed rebels/jihadists) are planning a false-flag attack, just like they did (and actually carried out) twice during the tenure of the Trump regime, which led to bombing raids by western forces against pro-Assad targets in Syria.

In short, according to the latest claims/intelligence from Russia, the rebels are possibly planning to launch one or more gas attacks against civilians under their control in Idlib. As happened before under both Trump and Obama, the international government/media complex would immediately blame it on the Syrian government (without a shred of evidence), which would then serve as an excuse to further escalate the US/western occupation of (eastern) Syria, and bomb Syrian government targets as ‘retaliation’ for the gas attacks, even though these attacks were almost certainly carried out by western-backed rebels.

Hopefully none of this comes to pass, but there are several direct precedents, and it wouldn’t be surprising in the least if it happened again.

Hi All,

I refer you to an article from Al-Monitor, which is a relatively good news source focussed on the Middle-East.

The main point made by this newest article is how the military-industrial complex, based in Washington, continues to stand in the way of the reconstruction of Syria, and to try to hinder anyone else from rebuilding Syria.

The Foreign Minister of the UAE recently met with his Russian counterpart, and both lamented the behaviour of the US regime on this point (when I say ‘regime’, I mean the system that stays well-and-truly in place, regardless of the comings and goings of various leaders, politicians, etc).

The UAE, for its part, according to the article, faces US sanctions of its own, if it doesn’t play ball with US policy.

In a nutshell, Assad controls about two-thirds of Syria, and the military-industrial complex wants to completely choke off any and all help, investment, development, relief, supplies, etc, from the bulk of Syria, where the government is in control. Of course, propaganda aside, US policy, like the policy of any other major country or empire, has nothing to do with concern for people, and everything to do with power/money.

As pointed out in the article, 80% of Syria now lives below the poverty line, and that obviously includes all of Syria, not just the parts controlled by Assad.

International interference has been a genocidal catastrophe for Syria, and it is not letting up.

Hi Everyone,

The purpose of this post is to advertise a podcast series that I am currently producing, with a new episode released on a weekly basis.

I asked the administration of Christianity Oasis for permission to plug my podcast in this forum, and was granted permission.

I have already mentioned it in the other forum I am involved with in ‘Cool Café’, and now wish to mention it here, as I have now started on the topic of the Military-Industrial Complex, which, of course, is pertinent to the main theme of this forum.

Just so you know, there is no advertising, and I will not be earning a single cent through this podcast. It’s something I wished to do for God, as we all (in my opinion) get closer and closer to the end times.

Before I provide you a link, here’s a little info about the podcast. While it’s technically a ‘podcast’, it could just as easily be described as an ‘audio book’. It’s not me yapping from the top of my head. Instead, I am reading from scripts which I wrote myself, based on a whole heap of research.

It is not a ‘Christian podcast’, but is a podcast by a Christian for anyone willing to listen. While anti-war themes are a major focus of the podcast series, the overall thrust of the podcast is an aggressive critique of the globalist, New World Order.

The Bible tells us there is more than one way to preach the gospel, ie. some like to preach the love of God, while others focus also on the severity of God (His holy wrath against anyone who is ultimately unrepentant). I respect each different approach and am sure they each have their specific purpose.

My overall intention of the podcast is too (hopefully) awaken anyone (who may listen to it) to the highly sinister nature of the globalist agenda, and hopefully, in a subtle manner, show them that the only antidote to the New World Order- and only hope- is Christ.

I have put a lot of time into the research and writing aspect of the podcast, and (because I’m not so strong on the technological side of things) have sort the assistance of two personal associates of mine (both far better with technology than me) to create the best possible sound quality in the podcasts.

There are some strong views presented within but, needless to say, the language is all clean (no obscenities).

If you don’t have the time or inclination to listen to the podcast, no problem at all and I totally understand it.

I will not be making a habit of plugging it continually in this forum. In fact, for all intents and purposes, you can consider this a one-off plug (as it was in the other forum I am involved in on this site).

Have a great Sunday, and a nice week.

Re: The situation in Syria

Postby TrueAndMagneticNorth » Sun Apr 11, 2021 10:29 am

Hello All,

I have a couple of things to discuss. The first is the situation in the Ukraine, which is largely divided between a pro-western left side of the country, and pro-Russian right side of the country.

There has obviously been a recent civil war there, with the Ukrainian government forces acting as a western proxy, and insurgents in the east acting as Russian proxies. There are presumably agents, special forces, etc, from the west and Russia, on the ground in the Ukraine backing their own side.

There have been renewed tensions there, with both sides (in my opinion) doing a good amount of sabre rattling. Don’t believe media propaganda that it’s all Russia’s fault. After all, Russian media would be no doubt saying it’s all the fault of the western countries, and their puppet government in the Ukraine.

Hopefully, there will not be a serious escalation and it would be nice if cool, rational heads on both sides would prevail. Let’s see if there ARE any.

I also refer you to a new article about Syria. It’s from al-monitor, and is just a round-up of the current situation. The military side of things has been largely won by the Syrian government and its allies, but the country remains in dire straits. The NW province of Idlib, where all rebels, jihadists and their families, etc, have fled to, remains the only rebel-controlled province. It’s largely controlled by al-queda and other jihadists.

Meanwhile, the US and its proxy forces are continuing to occupy the oil-rich regions of eastern Syria, and steal its oil.

Here are the main things covered in the article:

- The dire economic situation in Syria, and willingness of pro-rebel nations to deprive government-held regions of aide and supplies (sanctions warfare).

- Tensions in and between the regions not controlled by the government, and uneasy alliances between, for example, Russia and Turkey (who are ‘allies’, but back different sides).

- Fighting and ongoing tussles over strategic supply routes, and crossings.

- Ongoing attempts by the USA and Turkey to collapse the Syrian economy.

- Attempts by the Russian and Syrian governments to keep Syria economically afloat, and continue, as much as possible, to obtain access to the flow of goods.

What I wrote above is just a basic summary. Though it’s good that the fighting is slowly winding down, Syria is still in serious trouble, and the military-industrial complex is still waging serious economic warfare against it, and keeping it under a punishing siege.
