Important to note about this MoD report is that Putin had warned the American public this past week about this pending attack on Israel through the publishing by the New York Times of his open letter to these peoples warning:
“No one doubts that poison gas was used in Syria. But there is every reason to believe it was used not by the Syrian Army, but by opposition forces, to provoke intervention by their powerful foreign patrons, who would be siding with the fundamentalists. Reports that militants are preparing another attack — this time against Israel — cannot be ignored.”
Equally important to note is that this is the second time Putin has appealed to the American people about their government’s support of brutal Islamic terrorists, the first time coming when in 1999 he warned, also through an open letter to the New York Times:
“I ask you to put aside for a moment the dramatic news reports from the Caucasus and imagine something more placid: ordinary New Yorkers or Washingtonians, asleep in their homes. Then, in a flash, hundreds perish in explosions at the Watergate, or at an apartment complex on Manhattan’s West Side. Thousands are injured, some horribly disfigured. Panic engulfs a neighborhood, then a nation.”
Less than two years later, on 11 September 2001, Putin’s warning came horrifyingly true when these “ordinary New Yorkers and Washingtonians” watched thousands of their fellow American citizens perish due to their regimes failure to listen to anyone other than their lying war mongers.
In fact, and just like in Syria today, the United States completely ignored Putin’s warning and supported the brutal Islamic Chechnya terrorists even granting one of their leaders, Ilyas Akhmadov, asylum and providing him a US-taxpayer supported income.
How the American people even allowed their regime to grant asylum to Akhmadov who was one of the masterminds of the worst terror attack in Russian history that left 334 people dead, 318 of them hostages, including 186 children, in the Beslan School Massacre is beyond understanding.
That is, however, until you understand this MoD report which lists in detail the lies being told to the American people by the Obama regime about Syria and who exactly these Obama regime war mongers are aiding and that are flying the black flag of Al Qaeda, slaughtering “heretics,” burning down churches, and eating the hearts and livers of Syrian government soldiers on YouTube.
Even worse, this MoD report continues, supporters of Obama’s war on Syria, US Secretary of State John Kerry and US Senator John McCain, went before the US Congress last week and testified that the Islamic terrorists in Syria were in the minority of rebels and citied the work of Dr. Elizabeth O’Bagy from the Institute for the Study of War (ISW) as the basis for their facts.
However, this report says, both Kerry and McCain failed to tell US lawmakers, and the American people who they represent, that Dr. O’Bagy was, in fact, not a doctor, had been fired from her position at ISW because of her lying about her academic credentials, and even worse, that she was being paid by a Syrian rebel advocacy group standing to make millions should American attack Syria.
And in a complete understanding as to why a recent Gallup Poll found that virtually no one in America trusts their mainstream media organs, and that the fastest growing “newspaper” in America is The Guardian based in Manchester, England, was no major US news outlet that featured “Dr.” O’Bagy on their programmes bothering to tell their viewers the truth about her.
So today, and as the Mediterranean Fleet has now been expanded to 10 warships, this MoD report states, the Moskva guided-missile cruiser, that carries 16 surface-to-surface N-12 cruise missiles, each of which carries a 350-kiloton atomic warhead, is “more than a match” for the US and Western naval forces aligned against them.
As to why Putin would authorize such a strike, thus risking all-out war with the West, this report continues, lies in Russian military doctrine rooted in the mass failures of the Great Patriotic War (World War II) when the then Soviet Union failed to initially confront the Nazis because of Germany’s overwhelming military and technological advantages, but whose failure to confront led to war anyway.
And like the Nazi Germans of last century, Putin has warned the Americans today believe they are “exceptional” too, and about which he stated:
“...I would rather disagree with a case [Obama] made on American exceptionalism, stating that the United States’ policy is “what makes America different. It’s what makes us exceptional.” It is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional, whatever the motivation. There are big countries and small countries, rich and poor, those with long democratic traditions and those still finding their way to democracy. Their policies differ, too. We are all different, but when we ask for the Lord’s blessings, we must not forget that God created us equal.”
