The operations that are described are air attacks in response to shellfire directed against Russian positions in Latakia.
“All of the ultra-sophisticated equipment is operated by the Russians, like flying the drones. They’re the ones who train the Syrian pilots, and they’re in command,” says a Syrian military expert on condition of anonymity.
When rockets crashed into the airport this week, Russian forces detected the firing location and jets flew off towards rebel-held territory to “neutralize the threat“, the expert adds.

The immense psychological impact of what Russia has done cannot be overstated. The mere presence of increased Russian forces and activity in Latakia has changed the way the world views the Syrian war and the mantra we have heard from years from the Neoconservatives in the West about Assad having to leave in order for the war to end is now officially dead.
Politicians who have held maniacal, insane positions on this subject for years have now openly stated that it is worth trying to end the war without awaiting Assad’s exit or making it a precondition.
Netanyahu went to Moscow this week and so did Erdogan. Erdogan was so committed to regime change in Syria that he has restarted a civil war in Turkey in pursuit of it but suddenly the dream has been publicly abandoned by Erdogan, US Secretary of State John Kerry and other former fanatical regime change advocates.
“In the space of just 24 hours, both Ankara and Berlin announced this week that Assad could be a part of the solution to the civil war, and US President Barack Obama, who first said back in August 2011 that Assad “must step down”, is to meet his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin for talks on Monday.”
The quotes from Syrian residents regarding the Russian military presence are very revealing.
“Every morning, between 6 and 7, I see several Russian planes flying, and I really feel better,” says Ahmad, who lives near Bassel Assad International Airport in Hmeimim, 25 kilometers (15 miles) south of Latakia city.
The airport, along with Russia’s naval facility in nearby Tartus, have seen a major build-up in recent weeks.
“They were our friends, and now they have become our brothers — much more than many Arabs,” says Rima, a 25-year-old student.”
“I’m secular and I belong to a religious minority. For me, it’s the best thing that can happen because the Russians will keep the extremists from advancing,” says 40-year old engineer Fadi at a cafe in the Sheikh Daher commercial district.
“There is nothing more marvelous in the morning than drinking my coffee and smoking my narghileh (water pipe) on the balcony while listening to the melody of Russian planes,” says Nafaa, a 46-year old businessman in Sharashir, three kilometers (two miles) from the airport.
It is absolutely stunning to read these quotes and realise they are coming from a WESTERN NEWS OUTLET. After four years of the most evil lies imaginable, the truth is quite a shock.
A senior official in Syria described Russia’s military involvement as a “turning point” for the war.
“Russia intends to show that there is no solution without Assad and his army must be part of the fight against ISIS,” he said.
“Moscow wants to remind the United States that its relationship with Damascus dates back more than 50 years,” he said. “It’s also a message to regional countries that Russia intends to become a central player again.”
The Russian president is now the author of a new New World Order, he is the usurper and the destroyer of the dreams of the Neoconservative fanatics. The world domination dream is in ashes. It is gone.
US Sixty Minutes have an interview with Putin scheduled to air this weekend. Some of the sections concerning Syria have been released. Even CBS are apparently now going to broadcast some of the truth about the destruction the West has wrought in Libya, Iraq and Syria.
Vladimir Putin 60 Minutes interview FULL 9-27-15
The Munich Speech of 2007.
At a security conference in Munich in 2007, the Russian President explained what Russia was going to do and why they were going to do it.
In front of an audience that included Angela Merkel, John McCain, US Defense Secretary Robert Gates, Senator Joseph Lieberman,Tzipi Livni and Australian Foreign Minister Alexander Downer, it is amusing to watch their faces as they are informed very politely that they are hubristic deluded fools whose days of arson are coming to an end.
Putin patiently explains that the period of total US domination of international politics had been a catastrophe and his intent to end it and replace it with a system of co-operation in the context of non-interference in other states.
The Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the Likud Party have won the Israeli Parliamentary Elections securing an estimated 29 seats in the Israeli Parliament the Knesset, five more than nearest rival the Zionist Union with 24 seats. There are 120 seats in the Knesset so Likud won almost 25% of the seats while the Zionist Union won a flat 20%. The proportional representation system in Israel that sees any party that receives 3.5% of the vote seated in the parliament makes winning 50% of the Parliamentary seats almost impossible. Coalition Governments made up of marriages of convenience after a period of horse trading are business as usual in Israel as in many other nations.
A Personal triumph for Bibi and a Catastrophe for Israel and the Zionist movement
A few days ago the esteemed former BBC journalist Alan Hart wrote in Veterans Today that he hoped Netanyahu would win the election because he is such a calamity for Zionism and he was completely correct. The implications of this are huge. The Israeli Nation has just voted in support of permanent apartheid.
The farcical window dressing that was the peace process is now officially dead. The US role in brokering peace in the Middle East is also effectively over. The Israeli leadership have made it absolutely clear that they have no interest in either peace or justice. The opportunity for redemption has now disappeared forever for Israel.
In the short term this is a cataclysm. For Israel and the rest of humanity. Sadly Israel has become the nation of Sharon and Netanyahu and the supremacist Likud thug mentality. Truth is truth and there will be no hiding from now on. This is a rogue state, another South Africa, a supremacist warmonger state apparently intent on world destruction if deemed necessary. All the pretensions towards humanity have evaporated at this point leaving a vast black hole that demands dismantlement and violence is not a viable option given the arsenal they hold.
The Open Apartheid Era has begun.
Israel is apparently about to embark on what might be called the “Open Apartheid Era” and Israel must face wide scale boycotts and sanctions. Economic and cultural boycotts must be enforced ruthlessly. Anyone who has any positive interaction with the Apartheid entity must be hung out to dry and mercilessly denounced and ostracised.. There is no other way. The only way they are going to understand is apparently through decades of denigration and isolation such as the last apartheid state, South Africa received.
If Israel no longer believes in peace, as we now know, the one state solution is the only viable option to resolve the conflict. It is that simple. The two state solution is a dead duck. It is gone, Netanyahu killed it, a rare act for which he actually deserves credit.
The Zionist movement has now conclusively proven that it has descended to a level beyond repair and redemption. This movement is inherently dysfunctional, dishonest and marinated in supremacist wickedness. The dream is over it is time to pack up the tent and move on. All that remains is the awful denouement.
Rare Truths from the Desperate Psychopath and Proven War Criminal on the Eve of Probable Election Loss.
When a psychopath is desperate and cornered they will begin to do silly and desperate things. In his desperation on the eve of the Israeli election the Israeli Prime Minister has done the world a big favour by finally admitting the plain and obvious truth. The Israelis have no intention of leaving the Occupied territories, evacuating the illegal Settlements and allowing the people of Palestine to live in freedom on the 22% of their land that Israel does not comprise.
A Liar Who Know No Bounds.
Netanyahu at AIPAC (America Israel Public Affairs Committee)March 2nd, 2015 (nineteen minutes mark)
“Because the values that unite us are much stronger than the differences that divide us. Values like liberty, equality, justice. (for Europeans only presumably?!) “Tolerance.” (Israel is highly tolerant towards Jewish people who think it is ok to go out in the streets and chant “Death to the Arabs”, very tolerant!)
“Compassion.” (Towards wounded al Nusra and IS terrorists certainly.)
“As our region descends into medieval barbarism, Israel is the one that upholds these values common to us and to you….In a dark and savage and desperate Middle East Israel is a beacon of humanity and of light and of hope.”
Netanyahu has said that there will never be a State of Palestine while he is Prime Minister of Israel.
Netanyahu pledges no Palestinian state on election eve
“(Netanyahu) announced that there would be no Palestinian state if he is reelected.”
Earlier the blood soaked “statesman” had stated
“The truth is simple. If they form the next government, here on these hills, we will have a second Hamastan. But we prevented it. We develop here great neighborhoods for tens of thousands of Israelis .(in blatant and total violation of International law.) And we are committed to it.” (It being subjugation, theft and criminality with a healthy underpinning of Jewish Supremacism.)
In the absence of a State of Palestine, Israel has only two possible choices. Israel could either extend citizenship and voting rights to the entire population of Palestine that live under Israeli control or continue with the apartheid and subjugation of the people of Palestine as it has done for the past 47 years since the 1967 occupation began. This is a very simple truth the former US President Jimmy Carter expressed in his book “Palestine: Peace not Apartheid” in 2002.
Amusingly the Zionists have never forgiven Carter for his honesty and to this day try and denigrate him as a “peanut farmer”. As if that made any difference to the truth.
Israel and the Zionist movement never had any interest in peace. Peace is conceptually impossible for them as base supremacists. It is as impossible for them to even imagine peace as it is for them to imagine Arabs as human beings with the same inherent rights as themselves.
The Basic Facts of the Occupation.
For almost 50 years Israel has been in illegal occupation of the 22% of Palestine that Israel failed to seize in it’s opening bout of genocidal land theft in 1948.
This is how low the state of Israel really is. The 78% of Palestine that is Israel was not enough for them. They demanded the lot and never gave a thought to the consequences for the people they murdered and robbed to get it, content to dehumanise and blame the victim and pretend the people of Palestine were actually Germans and they were getting “righteous revenge”.
Now the low rent butcher of Gaza has finally told the truth. They don’t believe in peaceful coexistence between human beings. They believe in Jewish Supremacism and the two cannot possibly ever coexist.
The Israelis actually believe that they have the right to subjugate the people of Palestine in apartheid style bantustans FOREVER! This is how sick and disgusting this project has become.
No human being should have to live under Military Occupation and have every part of their life controlled and face the harassment and land theft of the illegal settlers..
This is the West. This is the beacon of light unto the world revealed to be nothing but racist, fascist criminals of the lowest possible moral and intellectual quality.
Anyone who ever says a positive word about the pitiful, ignoble Netanyahu must clearly be a supporter of racism of apartheid and supremacist evil. How did we fall so low?
What depravity that hundreds of millions of Westerners still walk around with the delusion that we are the “good guys” representing “enlightenment” and “justice” and if only it weren’t for the backward Muslims and their aggression the world would be at peace.
There are no positive or valid forms of supremacism, There never have been and there never will be. The fact that we have actually allowed these criminals to get a waiver for their crimes by pointing to crimes committed in Europe, by Europeans in the 1940s says both that they are some of the most shameless and morally reprehensible people who ever existed and we must be amongst the most simple minded fools to have ever believed it .
Anyone who believes in any of those things who is above the age of ten years is either completely evil or totally brainwashed.
The End of Zionism is Nigh
Netanyahu will presumably lose the election, and we will be presented with a new, sympathetic and airbrushed Israel that wants peace. The measure of the Israeli intent should be the Settlements. Unless and until the Israeli government freezes all expansion of illegal settlements, internally or externally, authorised or unauthorised, they clearly have no interest in peace for two states and all efforts should therefore be directed towards a one state solution that would enfranchise all the people of Palestne Muslim, Christian and Jew as equal citizens with equal rights as takes place in all civilised nations. Israel/Palestine can still remain a putative “State of the Jewish People”, albeit with a Jewish minority. If by some unhappy miracle, a new Hitler emerges and begins murdering Jewish people, of course the people of Palestine and many other nations would welcome the Jewish people to their nations in that case, but not as supremacist overlords.
The fundamental underlying idea of the Zionist movement, that Jews need a place of protection against the all pervasive gentile threat is absolutely ridiculous today and has been absolutely ridiculous for many decades.We don’t hate you. Honestly! Why would we? You are just as brainwashed and foolish as we are, perhaps even more so. You are the victims of the lies far more than we are. The recognition of the immorality of supremacism in all it’s forms is also an affirmation of the fact that there can be no correct in or out groups within the human family, it’s that simple. To attempt to defame Jews en masse or attempt to cast them out of the human family would be to fall victim to the exact same supremacism we seek to oppose and condemn in my opinion.
