The UK’s Telegraph article focuses on Russian president talking of desire for “international coalition” to fight terrorism and extremism and does not rule out possibility of direct military intervention in Syria.

This seems to be one of the most important news stories at the moment. The NYT has already posted.

Personally, I think that it’s time to try another UN Security Council Resolution to address Syria.

Dr Alf raises an interesting point.

The alternative to Shlomo Ben-Ami’s view, is that expressed on the PNAC website and by the Bilderbergers, who want to control “Eurasia” by which they mean Russia and China.

The PNAC doctrine would in the end probably mean war, an arms race in the interim and a first-strike using space based weapons and weather warfare.

The present low oil prices are an attempt to weaken Russia economically, so that she cannot modernize her defenses and orbiting space-based fractional bombardment weapons.

However, the Chinese are pressing on with their plans for a moon-base, space-based weaponry and more drones, fighting and storming robots and scram-jets fitted with cloaking devices capable of hitting any target on earth within 2 hours.

Any rational person would realise that war on the scale this would involve would render the world uninhabitable so the calculation by the Bilderbergers must be that people will capitulate to their demands.

Russia has repelled all previous invasions and attempts to effect regime change and China is gradually buying up the West.

It is time for sensible rapprochement over the Ukraine and more widely because the alternative is World War 3 just as General Albert Pike predicted in his letter to Guiseppe Mazzini in 1871 about 3 World Wars.
