Jag hoppas att Engdahl inte har rätt i det han skriver. Att det nya FN-avtalet om Syrien skulle innebära att de ryska och syriska styrkorna i januari tvingas att avbryta sina operationer, men att ISIS inte ska göra det. Så lätt kan väl inte Ryssland ha låtit sig luras?
William Engdahl – Erdogan, Salman and the Coming ‘Sunni’ War for Oil

We’re about to be plunged into a new oil war in the Middle East, this one with a possible nuclear dimension. Wars for control of oil have been instigated for more than a century since the dawn of the petroleum era around the time of the First World War. This war for control of oil, however, promises to be of a scale that will change world politics in a spectacular and highly destructive manner. It is on one level, a Saudi war to redraw the national borders of the infamous Anglo-French Sykes-Picot carve-up of the bankrupt Ottoman Turkish Empire of 1916. This new war has as its foolish goal bringing the oil fields and pipeline routes of Iraq and Syria, and perhaps more of the region, under direct Saudi control, with Qatar and Erdogan’s Turkey as Riyadh’s partners in crime. Unfortunately, as in all wars, there will be no winners.

The UNSC resolution 2254 is a devilish document. It calls for an immediate ceasefire beginning January 2016, in Syria by all signatories. That ceasefire excludes Saudi and Turkey-backed DAESH, and the Al Qaeda affiliate, Al Nusra Front. At the same time, it calls for an immediate, simultaneous start of a “political transition” which means completely contradictory things for the United States, Germany, France and the UK as it does for Syria, Iran, and Russia.

The relity is that the agreed UN ceasefire and simultaneous political transition to Washington’s “moderate Syrian opposition” will force Russia, the Assad Syrian government, Hezbollah and Iran military actions to halt, while Saudi-Turkish-Qatari DAESH and Al Qaeda Al Nusra Front and allied terror bands will have free reign to grab the oil riches of Syria and then of northern Iraq.

Ett möte hölls just i Saudiarabien mellan grupper som strider i Syrien, Assads kommentar – – Syria won’t negotiate with foreign terrorists, but only national & patriotic opposition – Assad

Syria will not negotiate with terrorists to end the conflict on their terms, no matter how hard the West tries to present armed gangs as grassroots political opposition, the country’s President Bashar Assad told Spanish News Agency EFE. – Syrian Army Seizes a Strategic Village on the Turkish Border as the Islamist Rebel Defenses Collapse

On Wednesday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade of the Republican Guard continued its triumphant march across the vast mountains of northeastern Latakia, capturing more villages and hilltops in Jabal Al-Turkmen (Turkmen Mountains) and Jabal Al-Akrad (Kurdish Mountains) as they eye the imperative Turkish border-crossing that is used by the Islamist rebels to enter Syria. – Syrian Army Advances Along the Turkish Border as They Seize Several Sites in Northern Latakia

The Syrian Arab Army’s 103rd Brigade of the Republican Guard is rolling along the Turkish border with the Latakia Governorate’s northern countryside after a series of gains these last two weeks; this has left the Turkish-backed Islamist rebels of Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda) and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) in a desperate state as their territorial control diminishes. – VIDEO, Latakia’s Border with Turkey Liberates From Nusra Terrorists – Top US and NATO Commanders Admit They Cannot Oppose Russian No-Fly Zone

American sources claim that the Russian Federation with the assistance of deployed land-based air defense systems have established a no-fly zone over the entire airspace of Syria, in addition the approaches to the Russian airbase in Latakia are also closed from the sea to a distance of 100-250 km from the coast by the Russian navy, now conducting exercises in the Mediterranean sea. – Syria Gets a Major Boost With Russian T-90 TOW Killer Tanks

Steven MacMillan – “Professional” News Gathering: The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights is a Tool of Western Propaganda

One of the most widely cited ‘organizations’ in the Western media pertaining to the Syrian conflict is the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR). As Tony Cartalucci astutely noted back in 2012, in his article: West’s Syrian Narrative Based on “Guy in British Apartment”, the Western media portrays the SOHR as a group of impartial and highly skilled professionals who are based in Syria:

4 dec – Rysslands insats i Syrien: knappt 1 500 Daesh-måltavlor på en vecka

Mellan den 26 november och den 4 december har Rysslands flygvapen utfört 431 flygräder från flygbasen Hmeimim och tillfogat precisionsattacker mot 1 458 terroristobjekt i provinserna Aleppo, Idlib, Latakia, Hama, Homs, Dayl al-Zawr och al-Raqqa, uppger det ryska försvarets talesman Igor Konasjenkov.
Konasjenkov preciserade att det har tillintetgjorts 12 bränslestationer, 8 oljeförekomster, islamisternas stödjepunkt på en nyckelviktig höjd, samt en gömd kommandopost. Ett flertal rebelledare har likviderats.

Pepe Escobar – How Russia is smashing the Turkish game in Syria

So why did Washington take virtually forever to not really acknowledge ISIS/ISIL/Daesh is selling stolen Syrian oil that will eventually find its way to Turkey?
Because the priority all along was to allow the CIA – in the shadows – to run a “rat line” weaponizing a gaggle of invisible “moderate rebels”. – Video: Large-Scale Military Operations Against Terrorist by Syrian Government Forces, Cutting ISIS Supply Lines

Thierry Meyssan – Why did Turkey shoot down the Russian Soukhoï 24 ?

Turkey made a bad mistake when it shot down the Russian aircraft which had strayed into its airspace for 17 seconds. The operation, conceived to teach Russia not to interfere with the Third Syrian War – designed to create a colonial state in Northern Syria to which the Turkish Kurds would be transferred – had the opposite effect. Moscow has reinforced its anti-aircraft capacities in Syria, and has isolated Turkey. Ankara has now lost the benefit of the secret oral agreement it had concluded with Hafez el-Assad. And London, Paris and Tel-Aviv no longer know how to implement their plan. – The UK Parliament’s Decision to Bomb Syria is ILLEGAL
