    Editor’s Comment: Further escalation in Syria is certainly not a good thing. Though we haven’t got a good reason to be there, it seems that it will soon be impossible to leave, and either Trump or Hillary will be faced with a massive cluster in the middle east all over again.

    Whether in the name of fighting ISIS, or whether in the name of containing the new Cold War threats, it appears that the workers of iniquity are determined to bring more death, destruction and ruin upon the earth.

    US To Suspend Syria Diplomacy With Russia, Prepares “Military Options”

    by Tyler Durden

    In the most dramatic diplomatic escalation involving the Syrian conflict in the past years, yesterday John Kerry issued an ultimatum to Russia, in which he warned his colleague Lavrov to stop bombing Aleppo or else the US would suspend all cooperation and diplomacy with Russia.

    24 hours later, this appears to be precisely what is about to take place, leading to an even greater geopolitical shock in Syria. According to Retuers, the United States is expected to tell Russia on Thursday it is suspending their diplomatic engagement on Syria following the Russian-backed Syrian government’s intense attacks on Aleppo, U.S. officials said on condition of anonymity.

    “We are on the verge of suspending the discussion because it is irrational in the context of the kind of bombing taking place to be sitting there trying to take things seriously,” Kerry told an audience in Washington.

    “It is one of those moments where we are going to have to pursue other alternatives,” he added.

    Why now and what happens next? According to US officials, the Obama administration is now considering tougher responses to the Russian-backed Syrian government assault on Aleppo, including military options. According to Reuters, the new discussions were being held at “staff level,” and have yet to produce any recommendations to President Barack Obama, who has resisted ordering military action against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the country’s multi-sided civil war.

    “The president has asked all of the agencies to put forward options, some familiar, some new, that we are very actively reviewing,” Blinken said. “When we are able to work through these in the days ahead we’ll have an opportunity to come back and talk about them in detail.”

    However, now that diplomacy with Russia is set to end, this will give the greenlight for Obama to send in US troops in Syria, with Putin certain to respond appropriately, in what will be the biggest military escalation in the Syrian proxy war in its five and a half year history.

            India Carries out ‘Surgical Strikes’ in Pakistan’s Kashmir, Pakistan Downplays

            Thu Sep 29, 2016 5:57

            TEHRAN (FNA)- India’s military said on Thursday it carried out “surgical strikes” in Pakistani-controlled Kashmir against alleged “elements” who were planning attacks on Indian territory.

            India’s director general of military operations, Lt. Gen. Ranbir Singh, said India received “very credible and specific information” that militants located in Pakistani-controlled Kashmir were planning attacks on Indian-controlled Kashmir and “in various other metros in our country”, UPI reported.

            “Significant casualties have been caused to the terrorists and those who are trying to support them,” Singh said in New Delhi.

            Indian officials said Wednesday night’s attack was in response to two militant attacks on Indian positions in September, including one in which 18 Indian soldiers were killed when militants stormed an army base near the Pakistani border, an attack Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said would “not go unpunished.”

            The circumstances surrounding India’s purported cross-border attack are not fully clear. India and Pakistan both contest the Kashmir Valley, which has led to two wars over control of the territory since its independence from Britain in 1947.

            After India’s announcement of the “surgical strikes,” Pakistan said no such strikes took place ,calling India’s announcement a “fabrication” and said only “unprovoked” small-arms fire occurred along the border in which two Pakistani soldiers were killed and nine injured.

            Pakistan’s Defense Minister Khawaja Asif said his country will respond “forcefully” if India launches another cross-border attack.

            “If India tries to do this again, we will respond forcefully,” Asif said in a statement. “India is doing this only to please their media and public.”

            • Pakistan has captured an Indian soldier too.

              It will be a very intense weekend

              • to YOU, maybe,…..but to the AVERAGE american, it’s just biz-nuss as usual….they aint got a cue.

      4. US To “Suspend Diplomatic Engagement” With Russia, Turn to Military Options in Syria

        The US never had intentions to use anything remotely diplomatic with Russia – The US goal was to have Russia remove it’s military from Syria.

      5. A feigned war between the U.S. and Russia (which, however, can be made to have real effect for other purposes) there in order to jointly finish off the real Free Syrians in Aleppo–and blame it on each other as well as declare “ISIS” (the U.S.-supplied decoy created for that purpose) to have been the ones being finished off. The American people will buy it all –“for their ‘security'”, as “ISIS” is sent to home in on THEM as their next target.

        • Its this simple. Russia wants to keep the Assad government in power to block the Saudi natural gas line to Europe which would significantly cut into their market share. The US desires to both help the Saudi’s and economically hurt the Russians. The US and Saudi are supporting all of the Syrian opposition including ISIS. ISIS exists at the bidding of the US and can dissolve when no longer necessary.

          Hillary and Bill are so jealous of people’s wealth, that they are doing everything they can to be part of the rich mans club, including stealing, bribes, sell outs. All to enrich them selves. Greedy bastards. They are so afraid to end up broke or not so wealthy like the Carters. Chelsea Clinton’s $6 Mil apartment?

            Your implying that this is all being done covertly. The reality is all of this is not just with the knowledge of TPTB but at their insistence and direction. The Clintons have personally pushed the corruption envelope but make no mistake they’re not establishing a foreign policy that doesn’t meet the approval of TPTB.

        Heavily-militarized police decked in riot gear and armed to the teeth, arrived by MRAP and other military-grade vehicles to a Dakota Access Pipeline construction site — not to crack down on a violent and destructive riot—but to break up … a peaceful prayer gathering.

        Members of the Standing Rock Sioux and other Native American Nations and their supporters had gathered to pray and sing songs at the construction site Wednesday, when Morton County, North Dakota, Sheriff’s Office deployed an insanely disproportionate response to break up the unarmed and otherwise wholly peaceful gathering.

      11. They hope to push Russia into an engagement prior to the election and use it to demonize Putin making Trump’s more moderate stand an issue. I think Trump will stand firm stating that the Russians are killing ISIS terrorists and they should continue this action.

        Interestingly Syria protects Christians as they compose 10% of the Syrian population while the US equips Islamic Fundamentalists that cut off Christians heads. ISIS is receiving arms and funding and its not coming from Russia, China or Iran.

        • Makes ya want to run right out and go to work to pay the extortion fees (taxes) to the government dont it

        • “ISIS is receiving arms and funding and it’s not coming from Russia, China or Iran.”

          Well said.

          The Zionist Neocon/Neolibs are attempting to manipulate well-meaning Americans into hating and warring against Russia, China, and Iran.

          That fact alone should set off major alarms. Those whom Obama, Clinton, and Kerry desperately want Americans to hate, are clearly not the ones Americans need to worry about.

          The ones Americans need to worry about, are the ones whom Obama, Clinton, and Kerry want Americans to underwrite (Israel) and accept with open arms (rapefugees).

        • Russia lost 20 million in WWII and has no desire for war. TPTB have a greater lust to obtain a world wide energy monopoly and are very willing to gamble the existence of the world to feed their ambition.


          • Kevin2, No country wants war except the US and its masters in Israel. So what do you do with bullies?

            • you swing for the fences….you get primal on ’em. you tear into them so they never even THINK about bullying you again…THAT’S what you do with bullies….or they dick with you forever.

            • Israel is a player, nothing more. TPTB are betting the entire world that war will not actually occur. They may be correct, however human interaction adds uncertainly. The closer they put the US towards war the greater the possibility of it occurring if the order is given or not. Like the situation during the Cuban Missile Crisis aboard the Soviet submarine where nuclear war was just one single vote away, coming from a people not known for voting, this is a very very dangerous game indeed.

            • Stolz Vorfahren

              “So what do you do with bullies?”

              Could you name them? Who in your opinion are the bullies?

              • The bully masters are the Zionist owned Central banks. They bought puppets in other countries to advance their global agenda but this is nothing new and it has been going on for decades. The armed entities of the central banksters are the military industrial complex and the multi national corps. e.g. Lockheed Martin,Raytheon, Northrop Grumman. etc… So all of these entities are working behind the scene Via their puppets named the US Government with branches in Europe headed by the house of Zion in London. Actually the real masters are in London dictating to our beloved selected officials in DC.

                So above are the bullies who are sucking the blood of humanity and that includes our blood in the US of A under the fake American Dream crap.

              • The bullies are primarily the US led Five Eyes and NATO, along with Japan.

                Their intended victims are ironically, those who used to be the “bad guys”. Russia, China, Syria, Iran.

                I used to be a Cold Warrior. But since the Cold War ended, the “good guys” have turned into the bad guys and vice-versa. I know. Strange, but true.

        Check out the Internet for products made in America. If you are relying on that Made in China crap, you’ll be up a creek when it breaks, and you can’t afford to fix it.

        • “Do you have plenty of underwear and socks? How about those bras ladies. If you don’t get the stuff you need now, who knows if you’ll be able to get things in a year from now.”

          Ladies, be sure to get yourself a Treadle Sewing Machine. Go to yard sales and pick up miss-matched sheets, pillowcases, old table clothes. Anything that can be turned into simple clothing. Buy bolts of material on sale. Yard sales are good for old patterns and nobody wants grandma’s old button boxes.

          We may be knitting and sewing. It’s a skill that will be much in demand when the SHT fan.

          Been thinkin’ about planting a small space with cotton. It’s what the ladies did in the 1860s for their personal use needs at home. Learn how to spin cotton with a spindle.

          • An acre of cotton will yield at most 750 pounds of raw material. You can’t use the acre to grow anything else, either, it will need to fallow in vetch or similar for two years before you can grow food.

            Just keep stocking up on manufactured cloth and clothing. Fill one spare closet or a few boxes and you’ll be in duds for a decade or more, and have a lot more time to expend on the rest of the things we need to do when the time comes.

      17. I want Hillary to say she supports Obama’s policies in Syria, when it gets into a bit of shooting, she’ll lose big time with the electorate.

        There’s no way this country is going to favor taking on the people who are targeting ISIS, even if it is Russia and Syria.

        What’s really going on in Aleppo? Are Assad and Putin exterminating the population for sport? Is it a war against US-backed “moderates”? That is what the mainstream media would have us believe. We speak with Vanessa Beeley, a journalist who just returned from Aleppo for the real story.

        Meanwhile, John Kirby…

      21. Let’s get this straight,I’m not the sharpest crayon in the box!Isn’t this the city Syria was trying to take,to cut off the supply lines between Turkey and Isis!The Kurds had it until Turkey invaded Syria,now Isis controls it again (back in business)Now were telling Syria not to bomb it!Last week Kerry was preaching to Russia about Syria and the ceasefire 2 days after (oops) US killing Syrian troops and helping Isis take the high ground over Syrian airport!Oh that Aleppo!WTF

      23. Good job too because we all know that the USA is backing ISIS via Saudi Arabia and Turkey and Russia is killing ISIS in Syria were the americans should not be and syria has not invaded anyone to invite this war.

        Putin needs to take the gloves off and let slip the dogs of war by sending in ground forces and any traitors in the US army that fights to help Israel and it’s land exspansion plans needs to be returned home in a body bag.

        The USA is under banker occupation and the military should had done something on 9/11 instead of becoming thugs on call for the bankers

      24. Actually, I believe it was Russia who decided to cancel diplomacy efforts, after the bull sh– that came from that old woman– what’s her name– Stephanie Powers or something… Paul Craig Roberts talked about it on his website. Her shi– mouth (all total, 100% bullsh–) finally convinced Russian leaders that diplomacy with the US is impossible because eveything that comes out of the mouths of our leaders is a lie… the US tells the truth about NOTHING!!
