Russia Threatens "Retaliatory Action" After NATO Expands Alliance

Image result for russia bear angry

As the war in Syria enters its fifth year with no end in site, it’s easy to forget about the world’s “other” proxy conflict, that which is still unfolding in Ukraine. 
You might remember Ukraine as yet another example of US intervention gone horribly awry. Indeed, this was but another instance of Washington stepping in to support “democratic” protests on the way to bringing about regime change. Just three months after a dramatic visit to Maidan Square by the Senate’s favorite warhawk John McCain, Russian-backed President Viktor Yanukovych was unceremoniously ousted. 
Unfortunately, the democratic utopia that America figured was inevitable didn’t take shape (just like it didn’t take shape after Gaddafi in Libya or after Saddam in Iraq) and now, Ukraine is mired in civil war as Russian-backed separatists battle Kiev’s US-backed regulars and a handful of nationalist militias. 
The point is, that problem hasn’t gone away and in fact, reports indicate that the violence has accelerated this week. Ukraine, and before that, the Crimea “incident,” were the “original” Russia Vs. NATO proxy playgrounds and have only faded from memory because of just how dramatic the situation in Syria truly is. While tensions in Syria revolve primarily around the possibility of an “accident” that leads to a wider conflict, the Ukraine/Crimea issue was characterized by both sides’ fears of the other's territorial ambitions. NATO insisted that Vladimir Putin intended to invade and annex other territory while The Kremlin contended that a series of snap drills, war games, and heavy weapons deployments telegraphed NATO’s desire to expand its capabilities and influence on the way to threatening Russia’s borders. 
As if tensions needed to rise any further in the wake of Turkey’s move to shoot down a Russian Su-24 near the Syrian border, NATO has once antagonized Moscow by extending a membership invitation to Montenegro. The announcement came at the NATO ministirial meetings being held in Brussels.
While that may sound inconsequential, Bloomberg reminds us that the country has “close economic links to Russia.” 
“NATO expansion since 1999 into eastern European countries that were under Soviet domination during the Cold War has provoked Russian suspicions and, in 2014, was a factor in the Kremlin’s decision to retake Crimea and promote the rebellion in eastern Ukraine,” Bloomberg goes on to note.
The move marks the first expansion of the military alliance since 2009 and as Reuters puts it, "defies Russian warnings that enlargement of the U.S.-led bloc further into the Balkans is 'irresponsible' action that undermines trust." Here's more color: 
Moscow opposes any NATO extension to former communist areas of eastern and southeastern Europe, part of an east-west struggle for influence over former Soviet satellites that is at the center of the crisis in Ukraine.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in September that any expansion of NATO was "a mistake, even a provocation".In comments to Russian media then, he said NATO's so-called open door policy was "an irresponsible policy that undermines the determination to build a system of equal and shared security in Europe."

RIA news agency cited a Russian senator as saying on Wednesday that Russia will end joint projects with Montenegro if the ex-Communist country joins the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation. The Adriatic state of 650,000 people is expected to become a member formally next year.
“It’s not focused on Russia per se or anybody else," John Kerry said on Wednesday, adding that "it would be a great mistake to react adversely." 
Kerry went on to insist that NATO "is not a threat to anyone ... it is a defensive alliance," which makes you wonder what exactly he meant when he said it "would be a great mistake to act adversely." 
In any event, Russia isn't happy as Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Moscow may need to take “retaliatory action.” Here's the whole statement: 
“On all levels, Moscow has always noted that the continuing expansion of NATO, of the military infrastructure of NATO to the east, can only lead to retaliatory measure from the east, from the Russian side, in terms of guaranteeing the security and maintaining a parity of interests.”
Reuters goes on to point out that "NATO allies are [still] divided over what message to send to Georgia over its long-delayed membership bid" and at the two-day meeting, "ministers repeated their long-held position that Tbilisi must continue to prepare for membership, calling for Russia's military to withdraw from Georgia's breakaway regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia."
Here's some amusing commentary from Jan Oberg of the Transnational Foundation for Peace and Future Research, who spoke to RT:
RT: The NATO chief was asked whether they've taken Russia's concerns into account. This will be another eastward expansion for the Alliance, near Russia's borders. How worried should Moscow be?

Jan Oberg: Maybe not too much, but this is the wrong moment given the situation between NATO and Russia. The West needs Russia in Syria and elsewhere. Secondly this is provocative... I see it as a sign of weakness. 

RT: And how do you expect Russia to respond?

JO: Well, there will be a diplomatic grumpy response to this, which is understandable given the other measures that NATO has taken in the wake of the Ukraine crisis. If NATO is an alliance of democracies – why not have a referendum? We have thousands of people demonstrating in Montenegro against this. It is done by means of lawmakers, but it is the same problem we have everywhere in the Western so-called democratic world – that the elite are doing things that people don’t want. It applies to Denmark and Sweden, it applies to the US, it applies to France, it applies to Montenegro. So let’s be democratic and get them into NATO if that is what the will of the people is.

Now, I don’t see any point in all these things, because they are all done without alternatives. Let the Montenegrin people get five models of how to secure their future and let them vote democratically. This either ‘yes’ or ‘no’ has nothing to do with democracy. I tell you – there is no problems in Montenegro that can be solved by NATO membership and participation in anti-terror or the war on terror and bring terror to Montenegro.

RT: It's been 16 years since Montenegro was bombed by NATO, and these memories are surely still fresh in the minds of some locals there. Why were the people denying a referendum on joining the Alliance?

JO: Because it is not a democratic leadership – everybody who has followed [Milo] Dukanovic over the years knows that this is not a democracy in a genuine sense of the word. We also know that it is a country with quite a lot to judge from, quite a lot of media report, ... economic corruption…

So if this is what NATO boosts itself within this crisis situation - it is an alliance on its way down.
NATO’s secretary-general Jens Stoltenberg said the alliance would be willing to chat with Russia about the latest expansion. 
Sergei Lavrov said only this: "Yes, we have something to talk about."

French Nationalists Hunt, Beat Muslims

The day after the disaster in Paris, Marine Le Pen - leader of France's right-wing 'Front Nationale' party - called for the nation to "re-arm itself" and "eradicate" radical Islam, warning the French people that they are "no longer safe." So, it is hardly surprising that the inevitable fall-out from this ultra-nationalist commentary has resulted in Frenc citizens taking their own protection into their own hands...
As the following clip shows, French 'patriots' are hunting Muslims in Paris...

The Elite Are Bugging Out to Deep Underground Bunkers In Morocco-WW III Is Here!

All signs point to the fact that the world has reached the point of no return  with regard to the culmination of World War III which will begin in Syria. This article details military actions which has not been relased by the American media. This article also details the mostly likely site for which the elite will “bug out” to in preparation to survive World War III.

What the Mainstream Media Is Not Telling You

S-400 anti-air defense system.
S-400 anti-air defense system.
Please look at the following videos. These videos were produced within the last four days. This information is not available in the Western media. When one looks at the totality of the actions inside of Syria by the Russian military and their allies, it is clear that the Russians are in almost complete control of Syria. In most areas of Syria, the military operations are in the mop-up phase. Further, one of these reports shows the deployment of the Russian  anti-aircraft battery known as S-400. S-400 can target 300 target planes traveling in excess of Mach 5 at one time. It is, without question the very best anti-air defense system in the world. The only question remains, why would the Russians need to deploy to Syria its most sophisticated air defense system? This makes no sense on the surface. ISIS and other Syrian rebel groups have no planes that the Russians would have to shoot down. Then what could the Russians be planning for. They are obvious planning to shoot down NATO planes coming out of Turkey that will challenge Russian military dominance in Syria.
Further, the following reports clearly refer to the Turkish military buildup on the Syrian border. This is not only an act of war, this is precisely the action that preceeds military conflict.  Again, it should be emphasized that none of this is being disseminated in the American media and as such, the American media should already be discounted in its totality. The fact is that the United States and Russia are going to war. Millions, if not billions, are going to die, and our corporate controlled media, owned by only six corporations, continues to lie the American people as their benefactors and owners prepare to bug out to Tarfaya, Morocco.

Stunning News From a Reliable Source

Yesterday, I received a call from Bob Griswold who owns Ready Made Resources. He informed me that Tim Moller, of Moller Engineering. Mr. Moller informed Bob Griswold that a South Korean construction firm contacted him and wanted 4,000 generators delivered (yesterday) to Tarfaya, Morocco. The call for the generators was very urgent. Why would someone want that many generators that quickly? Very simply, the Deep Underground Bunkers that are being constructed in Tarfaya, Morocco, need ventilation, power and a reliable energy source. The urgency of the need to deliver 4,000 generators is very concerning. My confidence call on this event is 100%. I know Bob Griswold. I have interviewed him many times. I also have a business relationship with him. In the time that I have known him, his information has ALWAYS been reliable. Further, the circumstantial evidence coming out of Tarfaya, is interesting and circumstantially confirming of these reports.
Tarfaya, Morocco, is on the cusp of big developments. Developments which are totally out of proportion to this very small and sleepy fishing village. For example, a massive wind farm is being constructed 25km away and a new port is planned. New beachfront promenades and restaurants are also on the drawing board. How convenient for the elite who will be looking to survive in this sleepy little village of 5,600 people in Southern Morocco.
If you were choosing a bug out location, wouldn’t you want the location to be located in a mild climate that could be enjoyed when it was safe to emerge from a deep underground bunker? This is precisely what we see in Tarfaya, Morocco.
tarfaya weather data
Tarfaya, Morocco wind farm which will produce several times the energy than is presently available.
Tarfaya, Morocco wind farm which will produce several times the energy than is presently available. Tarfaya is no Palm Springs, CA. Something is terribly wrong with this picture.


I would be remiss if I did not say that Paul Martin has been telling me for two weeks that his sources are telling him that massive bug outs are being carried out by the elite.
A blind man could see that something is terribl wrong with this picture. We are witnessing the coalescing of forces which could lead to the destruction of most life on this planet for once NATO engages Russia in Syria, and they will, all hell will break loose. The Federal Reserve is not going to allow Syria, Iran and the BRICS to undermine the Petrodollar without a fight. And the fight has already begun. May God help us.

Putin Orders Russian Military: Prepare Syria To Become “Obama’s Graveyard”

Image result for Putin Orders Russian Military: Prepare Syria To Become “Obama’s Graveyard”A truly sobering report issued by the Ministry of Defense (MoD) today appears to show that President Putin is preparing his military forces for World War III after he ordered Minister of Defense Sergey Shoigu and Head of Russian Aerospace Forces Victor Bondarev to being preparing Syria to become an “impenetrable zone of conflict” that would, in fact, become “Obama’s graveyard” and spell the ending of the NATO-Western alliance against the Federation.
According to this report, this grave war order was secured after President Putin and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reached an agreement late yesterday providing that Israel will not interfere with Federation air or land forces operating in Syria even in the event of an all-out war with the Obama regime led NATO military alliance who are attempting to aid their Islamic State allies currently being obliterated by Russian airstrikes and Syrian Army ground attacks.
Necessitating the timing of this order, this report continues, was President Putin’s refusal yesterday to obey the Obama regime’s warning against the Federation arming its fighter aircraft operating in Syria with air-to-air missiles—which when this Pentagon demand was ignored, the US announced it would begin an immediate massive air power exercise involving F-16 fighter jets, E3 AWACS surveillance and command jets, KC-135 refueling tankers, RC-135 intelligence-gathering planes, and B-1 and B-52 bombers with them, also, refusing to disclose the total number of planes involved.
Equally as provocative against the Federation necessitating this war order, this report notes, was Germany, this morning, announcing it too was sending thousands of it military ground and air forces to battle in Syria, while at the same time stating that they would not share any intelligence with Russia they had against Islamic State terrorists, and would in no way cooperate with the current legitimate Syrian government currently in power.
With the Syrian government, like Lebanon, Iran and now Iraq, being the only Middle East nations to support the rights of woman and other religions within their borders, this report says, the joining of the Germans on this side of the Islamic State and their woman hating Saudi Arabian backers defies all logic, but becomes understandable when viewed in the context that the Obama regime led West really does want a global war.
And as if these provocations by the Obama regime against the Federation were not by themselves sufficient enough to cause the issuing of this war order, this report also notes, NATO’s announcement today that they were inviting the Balkan country of Montenegro to join their military alliance against Russia is cause enough alone for a massive war to begin.
To the Obama regime’s supposed war against Islamic State terrorists in Syria, this report explains, it is nothing more than a mirage as yesterday’s Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR) report proves in their detailing of their attacks on 29 November that states:
“In Syria, coalition military forces conducted three strikes using bomber and remotely piloted aircraft on Nov. 29. Near Dayr Az Zawr, one strike destroyed an ISIL excavator and three ISIL bulldozers and damaged an additional ISIL bulldozer. Near Al Hawl, two strikes struck an ISIL tactical unit and destroyed an ISIL checkpoint and an wounded an ISIL fighter.”
And while Obama regime forces have left these Islamic State terrorists short one excavator and 3 bulldozers, this report continues, Aerospace Forces, at the same time, have been systematically obliterating these barbarians source of wealth—and described by President Putin as a “living oil pipeline” stretching between Islamic State territory and Turkey with “vehicles, carrying oil, lined up in a chain going beyond the horizon” and “day and night they are going into Turkey where these trucks always go there loaded, and back from there – empty.”
As to why the Obama regime has not targeted the Islamic States illegal oil wealth, having only bombed them 260 times in nearly two years, this report says, is due to their support of Turkey’s Erdogan regime, and about whom new documents were released this week proving this criminal organization had so much illegal Islamic State oil flowing to them they had to actually buy tanker ships to handle it all.
And with Turkey’s President Erdogan saying today he would resign if it’s proved his criminal organization is buying illegal Islamic State oil, this report points out, he should actually step down now as the evidence for his doing so has not only been fully documented by Russia with satellite photos, but also by London’s Guardian News Service who in July wrote: “After a US attack on the compound of a Daesh (ISIL) leader in Syria in May, direct dealings between the terrorist organization and Turkey became undeniable.”, and The Institute for the Study of Human Rights at Columbia University who in their report wrote:
“Turkey Provides Military Equipment to ISIS (ISIL Daesh), Turkey Provided Transport and Logistical Assistance to ISIS Fighters, Turkey Provided Training to ISIS Fighters, Turkey Offers Medical Care to ISIS Fighters, Turkey Supports ISIS Financially Through Purchase of Oil, Turkish Forces Are Fighting Alongside ISIS.”
So by the Obama regime’s cover-up and complicity with Erdogan’s criminal cartel’s illegal association with Islamic State terrorists, this report gravely states, it becomes understandable why Russia’s NATO envoy, Aleksandr Grushko, warned earlier today: “By ‘covering’ Turkey politically, NATO took responsibility for downing of Russian Su-24 – envoy “NATO, which gave no principled assessment of this illegal act and, as a matter of fact, politically covered for Ankara as the member of the alliance, thus shares responsibility for the incident. Once again, we see that political considerations are getting the upper hand over objectivity and mere common sense.”
And to the effect of President Putin’s order to his top military commanders to turn Syria into “Obama’s graveyard”, this report continues, was the immediate deployment to this war zone of advanced Russian fighter aircraft, the movement of Federation Aerospace Forces aircraft and ground troops to al-Shayrat air base, near the central city of Homs, and, most crucially, the deployment throughout Syria of electromagnetic weapons designed to turn this war zone into a virtual “electronic ghost world”.
Also to be immediately “deployed/implemented” in this war zone too, this report gravely concludes, is what many call Russia’s “ultimate weapon”—otherwise known in the perception warfare community as “Reflexive Control” whose basic principles are:
Distraction—during preparatory stages of combat operations, creating a real or imaginary threat against one of the most vital enemy places such as flanks and rear, forcing him to reevaluate his decisions to operate on this or that axis.
Overload—often manifested by sending the enemy a large amount of conflicting information.
Paralysis—creating the belief of a specific threat to a vital interest or weak spot.
Exhaustion—cause the enemy to carry out useless operations, thereby entering combat with expended resources.
Deception—during preparatory stages of combat operations, force the enemy to reallocate forces to a threatened spot.
Divisive techniques—cause the enemy to believe he must operate in opposition to coalition interests.
Pacification—through a peaceful attitude and approach cause the enemy to lose vigilance.
Deterrence—create the impression of superiority.
Provocation—force enemy action advantageous to your side.
Suggestion—offer information that affects the enemy legally, morally, ideologically or in other areas.
Pressure—offer information that encourages society to discredit its own government.
And though not stated in this MoD report being referenced, the most astute reader of this report can be left with no other impression than Russia’s President Putin has, indeed, made the choice to confront NATO directly over the Syrian issue, will not back down.
And, as always, the West, especially President Obama, will grossly underestimate the Russian peoples and government willingness to sacrifice everything, if they must, to save the Christian world from what they believe are satanic barbarians.

The Syrian Proxy War: A World War III-esque Summary

Even before any major world powers were willing to go public (so to speak) with their involvement in Syria’s five-year, bloody civil war, it was difficult to keep track of the myriad rebel factions, militant groups, and jihadists battling the Assad regime for control of the country. 
In a testament to just how confusing (not to mention terrifying) the situation had become by the time Iran began to mull asking the Russians for help, in April, 18,000 civilians ended up trapped in the Yarmouk refugee camp near Damascus where al-Nusra, ISIS, Hamas, the FSA, and the Assad regime were all fighting each other simultaneously in what UN Secretary General Ban ki-Moon called “the worst circle of hell.”
At that juncture, the conflict was still largely a true proxy war. That is, sure there were probably some US Spec Ops running around with the Kurds and perhaps with the FSA and there were almost undoubtedly a handful of Iranian commanders shuttling back and forth between Damascus and Tehran while coordinating with Hezbollah, but the war didn't look anything like it does now in terms of overt military action by multiple world powers. 
After Quds commander Qassem Soleimaini visited the frontlines in Latakia in June, the general vowed to "surprise the world," with Iran's next move. Weeks later Soleimaini was in Moscow plotting a Russian intervention with The Kremlin. By the end of September, Russia had built an air base at Latakia and on September 30, a three star general strolled into the US Embassy in Baghdad and informed the Americans that Russian airstrikes in Syria "begin in 1 hour." 
The rest, as they say is history and as we reported earlier today, things just got more complicated as it now appears both Britain and Germany are set to enter the fray. All of this is made immeasurably more difficult to grasp when you consider that it's nearly impossible to sort through which rebel groups are Saudi, Qatari, and Turkish proxies. 
Now that the tense standoff between Ankara and Moscow looks set to usher in a new phase in the conflict characterized by world powers engaging one another directly, we though it an opportune time to take inventory of who is who and what is what in Syria which just might be remembered as the theatre for the start of a third world war. 

Here are the stories that document the key events of the past six months:
Finally, in case anyone is still confused, here is the really simple recap:

  • Russian fighter jets (now armed with air-to-air missiles) over Syria
  • Russian missile cruisers off the Syrian coast protecting Russian assets on the ground and occasionally enforcing a no fly zone over the Mediterranean   
  • US, French fighter jets over Syria and Iraq
  • The US Aircraft Carrier USS Harry Truman is set to arrive by the Syrian coast in a few weeks
  • The French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle is parked off the Syrian coast
  • UK fighter jets deployed over Syria within days
  • German jets deployed over Syria within days
  • German frigate to protect the French aircraft carrier
  • German troops to be deployed
  • US "special" troops officially deployed to Iraq, unofficially operating in Syria
  • Russian "special" troops unofficially on the ground in Syria

World War III Draws Closer As Russia Accuses Turkey Of Being ‘Secret Allies’ With ISIS

2S19 Msta-S - Photo from Wikimedia CommonsAre Russia and Turkey on the verge of going to war?  In remarks that were almost entirely ignored by the western media, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov accused the Turkish government of being “secret allies” with ISIS on Friday.  And on Monday, the Russians announced that they would be attempting to seal the border between Syria and Turkey, and we also learned that the Russians have been rushing heavy artillery units into Syria.  As tensions between Russia and Turkey continue to escalate, could we be in danger of seeing World War III erupt in the Middle East?
The Russians have clearly become convinced that Turkey is at the core of the problems in Syria, and that is why the Russians now plan to completely seal Syria’s border with Turkey.  Lavrov seems to think that this will represent a giant step toward defeating terror groups such as ISIS…
“We are convinced that by blocking the border we will in many respects solve the tasks to eradicate terrorism on Syrian soil.”
And the Russians are right about this.  ISIS militants use Turkey as a home base, and it has been documented that Turkey has been “training ISIS militants, funneling weapons to them, buying their oil, and tending to their wounded in Turkish hospitals”.
It was already common knowledge that Turkey was doing all of these things, but now the Russian government is publicly accusing the Turkish government of being “secret allies” with ISIS.  When Lavrov chose to use these words on Friday, he knew exactly what he was saying…
“We think it highly cynical when some of the countries speak about their commitment to the corresponding United Nations Security Council resolutions and declare themselves members of anti-terrorist coalitions but in reality are playing a game where terrorists are allocated the role of secret allies,” Lavrov stressed. “We have more and more questions about Ankara’s real plans and the degree of its readiness to exterminate terrorism, in particular in Syria, and its commitment to the normalization of the situation in Syria.”
So why would Turkey want to be allies with ISIS?
Well, first of all the Turkish government hates the Assad regime in Syria and would love to see it eliminated.
Secondly, ISIS has been selling hundreds of millions of dollars worth of stolen oil in Turkey, and it has been alleged that the Turkish president’s own family is involved.
This was all supposed to be on the down low, but now the Russians are extremely angry and they are airing this dirty laundry for all the world to see.  On Monday, Vladimir Putin said that his government had “received additional information” that ISIS is shipping oil to Turkey on an “industrial scale”
Russia has received additional intelligence confirming that oil from deposits controlled by Islamic State is moved through Turkey on an industrial scale, said Vladimir Putin. President Recep Erdogan said he will resign if this is confirmed.
Moscow has grounds to suspect that the Su-24 was downed by Turkish jets on November 24 to secure illegal oil deliveries from Syria to Turkey, he said speaking on the sidelines of the climate change summit in Paris on Monday.
At the moment we have received additional information confirming that that oil from the deposits controlled by Islamic State militants enters Turkish territory on industrial scale,” he said.
We have every reason to believe that the decision to down our plane was guided by a desire to ensure security of this oil’s delivery routes to ports where they are shipped in tankers,” Putin said.
And of course it isn’t just the Russians that are making these claims.
Mowaffak al Rubaie is a former member of the Iraqi Governing Council, and he says that sales of ISIS oil in Turkey have amounted to approximately 100 million dollars a month
In the last eight months ISIS has managed to sell … $800 million dollars worth of oil on the black market of Turkey. This is Iraqi oil and Syrian oil, carried by trucks from Iraq, from Syria through the borders to Turkey and sold …[at] less than 50 percent of the international oil price,” Mowaffak al Rubaie said in an interview with RT.
“Now this either get consumed inside, the crude is refined on Turkish territory by the Turkish refineries, and sold in the Turkish market. Or it goes to Jihan and then in the pipelines from Jihan to the Mediterranean and sold to the international market.”
“Money and dollars generated by selling Iraqi and Syrian oil on the Turkish black market  is like the oxygen supply to ISIS and it’s operation,” he added. “Once you cut the oxygen then ISIS will suffocate.”
You can’t sell 100 million dollars of stolen oil a month without the U.S. government knowing about it.
That means that Barack Obama has been fully aware of what has been going on, and he hasn’t told the American people the truth.
One of the reasons for his silence could be the fact that the president of Turkey’s own son has been involved.  Just check out what Syrian Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi said just the other day
“All of the oil was delivered to a company that belongs to the son of Recep [Tayyip] Erdogan. This is why Turkey became anxious when Russia began delivering airstrikes against the IS infrastructure and destroyed more than 500 trucks with oil already. This really got on Erdogan and his company’s nerves. They’re importing not only oil, but wheat and historic artefacts as well.”
For much more on all of this, please see my previous article entitled “The Biggest Obama Scandal? He Knows That Turkey Is Buying Oil From ISIS And He Is Doing Nothing To Stop It“.
Previously, the Russians had promised not to commit ground forces in Syria, but now that appears to be changing.
According to Debka, the Russians have already deployed three battalions of 2S19 Msta-S self-propelled howitzers at this point…
First, a body of three battalions of 2S19 Msta-S self-propelled howitzers was deployed at Khmeimin and has already started pounding rebel lines and command centers in the area. This heavy artillery system, capable of firing 152mm bombs at a rapid pace, is a veteran of Russia’s former campaigns against Islamic terrorist groups, especially in the Russian war against Islamic rebels in Chechnya in the 1990s.
In addition to the 2S19 Msta-S self-propelled howitzers, the Russians have also brought in TOS-1 220mm multiple rocket launchers
Another heavy weapons system that Russia brought to Syria in recent days is the TOS-1 220mm multiple rocket launcher. This system, which is mounted on the chassis of a T-72 tank, has been deployed near the embattled Syrian cities of Hama and Homs.
With each passing day, we seem to be inching ever closer to the start of World War III.
And it is important to keep in mind that if war does break out, Turkey is a member of NATO, and so the U.S. would be obligated by treaty to help defend the Turks.
So let’s keep a close eye on what is happening in the Middle East, because it could end up having tremendous implications for all of us.
