DJ-Just like Turkey is more likely to leave NATO than NATO putting Turkey out-Turkey is much to strategic, bordering Iran, Syria, Black Sea, second largest army (after US)-a T-exit-Turkish exit out of NATO-would be even worse (for NATO) than the BR-exit is for the EU.

Also Syrian forces getting out of Afrin-NW Syria-is very unlikely. Syria does see Afrin as part of Syria-Turkey is the invader. Although Syrian-Kurdish talks did not bring Kurdish forces under Syrian (Assad) control-the YPG-Kurds giving access to pro-Assad forces is much to valuable for Damascus. When pro-Assad forces show themselves as "good friends of the Syrian Kurds"-pro-Assad forces may show up (maybe just for a short term, as advisor, giving aid etc.) in other YPG-held area's.

DJ Some remarks:

-Since there are over 30 milion Kurds Kurds can be found on all sides in this conflict. A few Kurds joint IS, quite a lot of them might be in pro-Assad forces. (Also forces from Iraq, Iran-even Russia could include Kurds).
-In the Syria conflict Kurds and pro-Assad forces most of the time did not fight eachother, but did fight with IS, "moderate western backed jihadi-terrorists". The Kurds claim they had to organize themselves in defense against IS. (Kurds and muslim-extremists do not mix. Kurds have several religions, christian,(Yezidi) to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zoroastrianism)
-Syria itself had a small Kurdish minority. Since the Kurds see "Kurdistan" as their country a lot of the Kurds in Syria may not come from Syria but are defending Kurdistan. 

East Damascus

http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2018/02/senseless-human-suffering-east-ghouta-180220064101130.html Urban warfare is a horror for civilians. The "western main-stream-media" are still producing the "bad-Assad/bad-Russia-story" and ignoring who paid IS, other terrorist groups/"moderate rebels". 

It is very difficult-so far-to get a clear view of what is going on in several parts in/on Syria at this moment. Both for fighting and for talking.

Most likely Russia and Iran are having talks with both Turkey and Syria to avoid a Turkish-Syrian war. Russia is selling-on credit-S400 missiles to Turkey, did invest in Turk-stream gasline. Russia does have the exploration-rights for Syrian oil and gas. Both Iran and Russia need Turkey to limit the US and Israel.
Turkey now moving to US/NATO would end Russia's/Iran's dream of being in control of the Middle East-would also damage Putin's plans for his march-re-election. 

Erdogan has limited room to move. The US wants to get rid of him. The EU is-at this moment-not very interested in a Turkey membership. (Even if it would bring Turkey back to the west-political climate in the EU does not allow a Turkish EU membership). Russia still has to deliver the S-400, and a oil/gas pipeline is under construction and can be shut of. Iran and Turkey both have a large Kurdish community-a conflict with Iran would make Turkish internal problem with the Kurds even larger.

DJ-I expect a sort of ceasefire in Afrin. Turkey did gain a lot of land the last few days. The YPG-Kurds in Afrin may have been close to collapse and encirclement. Turkey now has a good position for talks (with Russia-via them with Assad. (DJ-Jordan has better relations with Assad then Turkey !) Russia does want the Syrian-Kurds under Assad/Syria control.

The US (France, Israel, others) may start major action when the rebels release gas/chemical weapons and "the west"blaimes Assad for it (again). But that would bring an "East" (Russia, Iran, most likely China)-"West" (NATO, some Gulf States, Israel) conflict wich would be hard to contain. 

Russia complaining on EU moving into the Balkan/SE Europe-of course Russia could/should do a better offer (then the EU would complain). Turkey and Iran may soon be joining al kind of deals with Russia and China. 

https://sputniknews.com/middleeast/201802211061850434-iran-threatens-israel-drone-downing/ DJ The Israel(US)-Iran relation is part of the war in Syria-one of the many reasons why this war might "explode" into a conflict that brings war from Turkey (Cyprus, Greece ?) to Pakistan, Somalia, North Africa.

Secret wars

DJ-The main "thing"with "secret wars" is that they are secret-but in time enough gets out to get a bigger picture. Also goals are often quite clear. So it is a jigsaw-puzzle, connect-the-dots-drawing.

"The West" is not a country but via NATO, ASEAN, etc. groups of countries united on certain goals. The US is dominating these organizations, also main supplier of weapons, (satelite)info, etc. Other countries have (very) limited room for their own actions. (Israel active above Syria means US is allowing this-if not even ordening it.)

With Russia and China working (very close) together and "New Silk Road"plans the US global dominance is "under pressure" more than ever before. This dominance is based on the US military being all over the globe. Also economically the US wants to control energy and financial markets (US-petro-dollar, SWIFT).

To keep Russia and China from moving to the Middle East, to get Iran under "control" US is moving IS fighters from Syria and Iraq to Afghanistan (and Libya). The US (via a.o. Israel) is trying to get the Kurds under control (Kurdish/Iraq-Syria oil ends up in Israel).

From the EU-via Ukraine, Georgia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgia%E2%80%93NATO_relations, Azerbaijan, to the Pakistan-India-China border https://asia.liveuamap.com/en/2018/20-february-stratfor-according-to-reports-indias-army-chief area a "western shield" is being made. 


This containment-cold war-strategy needs US forces in positions to avoid "enemy" forces to take over those positions. The US is in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan-to avoid Russia/China getting there. When you mix this "way-of-thinking"with the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domino_theory "War=Peace" under US-rules.

The Final Battle ?

(DJ-When it sounds dramatic it is because the global situation IS dramatic)

An overview;

-T-exit, Turkey out of NATO is out of any question for the US/NATO, rather a new try on getting rid of Erdogan (bringing in "foreign Turks"), Turkey may be slipping into a not-wanted war with Syria. (The US and Israel would welcome a war between Turkey and Iran, Russia-US/Israel may try to create such a war)
-Syria http://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/news/world-news/2104-ultimatum-russia-warns-saudis-pull-forces-out-of-ghouta-syria-or-it-will-be-be-obliterated-grozny-style Russia, Iran want to restore Syria as a state. The US wants to split up Syria-US being in Syria (Iraq, Afghanistan) to stop Russia/China from taking over the Middle East
-Afghanistan; Russia claims the US is transporting IS fighters into Afghanistan-to threaten Russia, Iran, China, Pakistan-those group of 4 may be planning to "get a grip" on Afghanistan. (China already working on a military base to stop IS fighters moving into China)
-many other conflicts;
-Israel-Gaza
-Egypt-Sinaï/Libya
-Chad, Mali, (South)Sudan, Somalia, Ethiopia (China, Turkey, Russia trying to get military bases, UN peace-keeping-wars spilling over into Kenya, Nigeria)
-Iraq (US presence there means US creating reasons to stay in Iraq)
-Yemen (US backed Saudi genocide-with UAE/Sudan doing a lot of the fighting-Pakistan support for Saudis)
-Pakistan/China-India; disagreement on Kashmir/Himalaya-states, Indian ocean (etc) https://southfront.org/india-build-major-overseas-military-base-off-africa-combat-china/
-Myamar(Burma/Birma)-Bangla Desh (Rohingya's, Muslim refugees from Myamar)
-Korea (US-China)

The basics is the "old"East-West conflict (in fact going back to the 18th/19th century with the US moving west, Russia moving east-up into Alaska/Russian America). China being "new" in this conflict.

The US will not give up its position as THE dominant nation. The US want control of (all-when possible) oil and gas in the world. Russia and China challenge that US-position. The situation in Syria may cause a (final) spark in this global powder keg. 

The US has had a central-Asia corridor to keep Russia and China from the Middle East. (http://www.presstv.com/Detail/2018/02/21/553159/Iran-Azerbaijan-Amir-Hatami-Zakir-Hasanov-Aliyev-Karabakh) That corridor is now collapsing (Pakistan working with China, Ukraine out of control, Turkey working with Iran etc.) The US claims "moral superiority" with "bad-Putin, bad-Assad, bad-China-sanctions-storiers"and mass-media not pointing to the risks of a third world war. (http://www.moonofalabama.org/2018/02/russian-bots-how-an-anti-russian-lobby-creates-fake-news.html Mass-media has become part of the problem-again.)

DJ-Even if Saudi Arabia stops supporting it's rebels in Syria the international situation may have crossed a point of no-return. 

(Not "new" but a good summary of US-created mess in Syria/Middle East. from the comments (see also http://www.presstv.com/Detail/2018/02/21/553183/russia-unsc-syria-ghouta-nebenzia-Russia-"moderate US backed rebels" keeping civilians hostage in Eastern Ghouta)

Eric Zuess points to the various names which CIA gives their proxies to hide the fact they are all on the CIA Al’Qaeda payroll. Analyst Canthama supplies a breakdown of the named groups in E.Goutah, and predicts a tough battle. From SyrPer 5hr ago.

“.. most of them are Syrians but there many Arabs from MENA. The issue in Ghouta is the … siege and most civilians under hostage situation, they are forced to fight for the terrorists. The different groups inside East Ghouta are as follows; all of them are WahhaBeasts, hardcore salafists, extreme radicals, the lot.

1) ISIS doing a job for US/Israel in the Palestinian refugee camp in Yarmourk camp. I mean, this very ISIS group is mostly Hamas Palestinians (one main reason Syria is not mending ties with Hamas after they betrayed Syria in 2011 and were kicked out of Qatar in 2017). This ISIS group is Hamas political branch and has deep ties to Mossad. Hamas military branch [on the other hand] is resistance [to Israel].
2) JIA (Alloush’s gang) has deep ties with KSA, there are several Arabs here from all sort of MENA countries.This group continues to be the largest.
3) Ahrar al-Sham – deeply connect to Turkey and Qatar but also with ties to KSA, this is the most effective terrorists group in Ghouta, lots of ex SAA.
4) HTS – Al Qaeda, this Ghouta branch is linked to KSA and Turkey.
5) Al-Rahman Legion, mostly funded by Qatar, they are a mixed bag of many factions that changed sides since 2015.”

[I am not interested in these nomenclatural niceties. They are all terrorists taking up arms against a democratic government].

Syria-escalation


DJ-Russia is sending a clear message with these planes-no further attacks-take Russia serious. These aircraft are coming after several (by-proxy) US attacks on Russian targets in Syria the last two months.

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-02-21/syrias-afrin-move-artful-assistance-allies-or-armageddon-making DJ-Russia and Syria not on full agreement on some issues ? In my opinion both want "all of Syria" under Assad control. (This may-at some point even include (parts of) the Golan heights-as a Damascus safety-zone). 

http://syria.liveuamap.com/en/2018/22-february-syrian-observatory-syrian-forces-enter-kurdishcontrolled Pro-Assad forces moving into Kurdish held area of Aleppo (as part of a Kurdish-Syria deal ?-if not Kurds and Syria cooperation may run into a major problem.)

DJ-Russia did get a (sort of) cease fire in Afrin. The Kurds did not want to fight Turkish tanks in urban warfare-Turkey did not want Russia shooting at their planes...

In Eastern Ghouta http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2018/02/demands-halt-monstrous-campaign-syrian-town-180221183144792.html (DJ-IS/alquada"rabels" shell Damascus killing civilians daily, terrorize the local population.-all this is not in the MSM)https://southfront.org/russian-reconciliation-center-opposition-forces-hindering-evacuation-of-civilians-from-eastern-ghouta/ and https://southfront.org/heavy-clashes-between-hayat-tahrir-al-sham-and-syrian-liberation-front-in-idlib-and-aleppo-videos/-DJ South of Afrin in NW Syria "rebels" are fighting eachother. Both in Idlib and Eastern Ghouta there is a real risk of chemical weapons being used by the "rebels"-for wich the west will blame Assad.

US-regime change agenda

Of course blaming Russia, Iran, Syria etc for agression while the US is planning regime changes all around the globe makes clear where the problem is...the US "deep state" and its co-workers around the globe bring the world close to (very) major conflict.

US want regime change in:

-Syria, US (a.o.) did arm "rebels", from wahabi's/salafist extremists to minorities like Turkmen and Kurds.
-Iran, the US is making the nuclear deal unworkable for Iran https://www.rt.com/newsline/419583-iran-nuclear-deal-banks/
-Venezuela
-North Korea (after the winter olympics again US warplans ?)
-Russia
-China

Regime change in Libya, Iraq, Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Ukraine did bring chaos to those countries but "cheap oil/gas" for western companies. 


Syria

In NW Syria http://syria.liveuamap.com/en/2018/22-february-the-rest-of-the-convoy-that-was-hit-by-turkish and http://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/news/world-news/2111-turkish-army-loots-tractor-shoots-farmer-dead-video Turkey is involved in war-crimes against Kurds. The same crimes Turkey was doing to Kurds inside Turkey for decades with NATO-support. 

In East Ghouta http://www.presstv.com/Detail/2018/02/23/553289/Araqchi-Iran-Syria-Ghouta-Damascus 400.000 people are kept hostage by western supported "wahibi rebels" (IS/alquada).
https://www.rt.com/news/419618-syria-ghouta-distorted-coverage/ Those "rebels" terrorize the population, fire with mortars on Damascus killing hundreds of civilians there as well. 

Most likely the US/NATO will come to help those "rebels". Syria, like Iraq, Libya-once had (for the region) good healthcare, housing, education for most. The "west" is destroying all that for oil and profit for a few.

Media

http://www.presstv.com/Detail/2018/02/23/553297/Is-US-Deep-State-targeting-alternative-media DJ-Around the globe bringing news on conflicts, climate change etc. is made "difficult/impossible" by YouTube, Facebook, MSM-giants. The official story is the absolute thruth-we are moving into a "totalitarian democracy" with no room for alternative views. 

This tendency will go further-having a different opinion may mean ending up in exclusion.

Global War

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wV17AW65uLU Israeli News Live-US moving air-defense to the north of Israel.
(DJ-Hal Turner a.o. been warning for US attacks at North Korea before end of march)https://sputniknews.com/us/201802231061932109-trump-us-sanctions-nort-korea/)
(DJ-IS runs internet casino's, proberbly involved in drugs/slave-trade-could become an "Islamic maffia".)

DJ-Turkey is a NATO-member and a questionmark in the Syria-conflict. It could be part of a strategy to pull NATO into the Syria-war. In Israel preparations for a two-front war are being made. If Russia did put an ultimatum on the US to leave eastern Syria-the US may have decided "to go to war".

US may want to confront Russia, Israel wants to confront Iran and Hezbollah-for the moment in Syria/Lebanon.

DJ-It looks like a old fashioned western with two cowboys confronting eachother-who will pull the trigger the fastest ? Only this is not the "Wild-US-West" but western Asia-with most likely global consequences.

Syria

https://sana.sy/en/?p=128290 (more or less same as https://www.gelderlander.nl/buitenland/8-miljoen-burgers-in-damascus-bedreigd-door-terroristen~a19dc7e8/ in Dutch) 8 milion Syrians kept hostage by "rebels"even UN sees as terrorists. Still in the propaganda war http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2018/02/die-400-killed-eastern-ghouta-180222145312233.html of course children are used. 
The US keeps supporting alquada(linked) groups in Syria.
DJ-http://syria.liveuamap.com/en/2018/23-february-armed-opposition-factions-in-ghouta-the-governments groundoperations still have to start to take over terrorist held area's. Like in Aleppo "the west" may have "military" embedded with "rebels"-so they have to get out. Will the US attack when groundoperations start in Damascus area ? Will (tomorrow-they did two weeks ago) Israel attack Iran targets-reclaim access to Syria airspace ? (For both the US and Israel the de-facto-Russian made no-fly zone above Syria must be unacceptable.)

https://syria.liveuamap.com/en/2018/23-february-hts-believes-that-turkeybacked-fsa-will-be-coming, https://syria.liveuamap.com/en/2018/23-february-greater-idlib-repel-the-invaders-operation-room DJ-Idlib region-south of Afrin-is involved both in East Ghouta-battle and Afrin-operation. Turkey distancing itself from Iran and Russia-may move south to Idlib (to support pro-Turkish "rebels" fighting US/Saudi backed rebels in the region). 

Iraq

DJ-US does not want Iraq to buy Russian S-400

Saudi Arabia/Iran

http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2018/02/iran-warns-nuclear-crisis-jcpoa-deal-scrapped-180222125809339.html DJ-The US want Iran to stop building missiles for medium range. De facto US wants Saudi Arabia and Israel to dominate the Middle East (for US interests).

Russia


Korea

Moon and Ivanka Trump both want peace. https://koreas.liveuamap.com/en/2018/23-february-two-koreas-to-hold-talks-next-tuesday-over-north Korea-joint paralympics ?

DJ-Further escalation in Syria may be a matter of hours. Pro-Assad forces moving into East Ghouta area (with Russian airdefense) is quite likely to happen soon. Turkish actions in NW Syria may become a-as good as-Syria/Turkey war. 

February 25 ends the Korea winter olympics https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2018_Winter_Olympics The US has its warplans for North Korea. (Ignoring Russia/China views).

Syria/Middle East

http://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/news/world-news/2116-as-warned-russia-begins-destruction-of-ghouta-syria-rebel-enclaves-under-attack-by-su-57-jets
DJ-A strategy could be-in urban warfare-bombs-groundtroops move in-resistance=groundtroops pull back, more bombs-troops come back. It is assumed that off the 400.000 people living in East Ghouta more than 50% managed to escape from "western backed rebels/terrorists". In East-Ghouta I assume there will be a western (mossad, saudi) command center-the west want them out, Russia, Iran, Syria want them dead. 

-Israel would not attack Iran on its own
-Israel may heve bases in Azerbeijan
-Israel also would use submarines
-Israel may use nuclear weapons in a first strike against Iran (to show that they are willing to go that far-also making their point for Russia)
The US want to control the global energy market-and therefor the Middle East. (The horror of the article is in the fact that-from a military view-a first strike on an enemy with massive use of nuclear weapons may have some logic. It would unable the opposant to strike back with enough force to do the destruction.)



http://www.presstv.com/Detail/2018/02/24/553411/Russia-Syria-UNSC-Eastern-Ghouta DJ-disagreement on UN resolution is on wether to include protection of "rebels"in East Ghouta.



Pakistan/Afghanistan/US


US


Philippines-US


Ukraine

DJ-Russia; Kiev want to take east-Ukraine by force (DJ-with US (or NATO ?) help).

DJ-Hal Turner puts some of his stories for the main part behind a pay-wall. He needs sponsors (but he is so extreme right-wing nobody wants to sponsor him)-sometimes he has good info-from what was not behind the pay wall sums up the global situation :
UPDATED 3:23 PM EST SEE BOTTOM --- At a Security Conference in Munich, Germany, Senator James E. Risch (R-ID) told attendees the situation with North Korea is heading toward war.  "If it starts . . . . most catastrophic event in the history of our civilization . . . . .mass casualties on a scale this PLANET has never seen before . . . Biblical."

Syria




https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/video-militants-shell-important-syrian-army-base-daraa/ (DJ-Daraa is in SW Syria not far from Golan Heights Israel/Jordan border-main road from Damascus to Amman goes via Daraa)


http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/48857.htm US attack with 59 cruisemissiles on Syria lacks any rationale-open the doors for attack(s) on North Korea ? Trump can not decide to start a war without congress.

Yemen


EU-IS

For the first six months of 2018, Bulgaria is presiding over the European Union; yet in this period, a Nazi torch-lit march took place though its capital, Sofia, on 17 February. A member party of the current government participated in this march.
-ontinuing the tradition, now 10 years old, the demonstration of 17 February celebrates the memory of General Hristo Lukov. This gentleman promoted anti-semitism and collaborated with the Nazis. The process had the support of the Union of Patriots, a party member of the coalition government.

The Bulgarian Prime Minister, Boïko Borissov, is the godfather of one of two leading Mafia clans in the country. He represents Bulgaria in the EU Council and is in fact the President for the first six months of 2018. He has organized an important trafficking of drugs and arms to support Al-Qaeda and Daesh in Syria [1].

In actual fact, Berlin has known Boiko Borrisov for a long time and is blackmailing him. In the EU Council, Boris is cooperates with Germany and granting its every request. Let us not forget that the Polish Donald Tusk, the High Official chairing the administration of the European Council, is a childhood friend of the German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

The European Union is declaring that it was created to fight Nazism and to guarantee peace.

Nazi parties are members of the governments in Lithuania [2], Ukraine [3] and Bulgaria. All these parties have been organized by former Nazis recovered by the Stay Behind networks of the CIA and Nato to fight against the USSR. During the Cold War, they benefitted from the protection of the United States and occasionally Germany.

Syria

http://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/news/world-news/2119-israel-fires-5-missiles-at-syria-all-shot-down (DJ-no other confirmation yet-but very likely-target was Syrian air base in Damascus area-correction https://syria.liveuamap.com/en/2018/24-february-eastern-damascus-rebels-bombed-today-dumeir-airbase-no Israel involvement ?)

DJ-A possible (good) option would be (some) rebels accept being moved to other parts of Syria. The build-up of forces should make clear the "rebels" will have no chance. (Maybe the US can move them to Afghanistan ?)

US-IS

Russia, Iran, Iraq, Syria all say the US is moving IS fighters when that fits US plans. 

Afrin


The UNSC will talk further on Syria-Russia, Iran, Syria will attack "rebels".

Turkey

DJ-In short Turkey against Syria/Russia/Iran/Hezbollah attack against East Ghouta (just like Qatar (aljazera=Qatar) Turkey has "its rebels" there). The US wants Turkey (and Iraq, KSA) to not buy S-400 from Russia. Turkey is fighting its own wars in the Middle East (not part of "the west" or Russia/Iran-but doing a lot of business with Iran, Russia, China, Pakistan)https://syria.liveuamap.com/en/2018/24-february-reports-of-iranian-militias-shelled-turkish-checkpoint-DJ-Erdogan can not survive without Russia, Iran.

Korea

Tomorrow the winter-olympics are over. The speed with wich the US delegation will leave Korea may say something on what the US plans are. http://www.presstv.com/Detail/2018/02/24/553455/US-Russia-North-Korea-Igor-Morgulov--

Propaganda-war

DJ-"The west" is for"peace" in East Ghouta. The MI6/EU White Helmet "hero's" (steeling with IS etc. most of the "aid") have now their own song http://www.moonofalabama.org/2018/02/the-white-helmet-singalong.html. In the (elite sponsored) nazi-time we had the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reich_Chamber_of_Culture-now we have https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Embedded_journalism.
Yes-East Ghouta is a "hell in earth" but in the spotlights, many other "hells on earth" are (also)western made but kept out of the propaganda ("press"), Yemen, East Congo etc.
The basic-simple-story the propaganda tells the public; Russia is bad, Iran is bad, North Korea is bed, Assad is bad-we are good. With an audience unaware of "programming" the foundations are being build for the "War of the good against evil". Totally sick Dead and deadly !

Syria

http://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/news/world-news/2122-phone-recording-from-russians-in-syria-the-us-beat-our-asses-like-we-were-little-pieces-of-*****, https://sputniknews.com/middleeast/201802251061967259-usa-envoy-doubt-damascus-comply-resolution/ DJ-After the Russian intervention in Syria-NATO/ Gulf States started another "civil"war-the US has started a-by proxy- war against Russia in Syria. Israel is fighting Iran in Syria.
Some groups-on a UN terrorist-list-are excluded from the ceasefire. So the "battle" for East Ghouta will go on-with the western propaganda claiming Assad and Russia killing children while "the west"most likely has a command post in East Ghouta and is working with what the UN considers terrorists keeping citizens hostage. 

US-Kurds

https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/kurdish-sdf-hand-manbij-northern-aleppo-syrian-army-report/, http://syria.liveuamap.com/en/2018/24-february-assad-forces-controlled-talshaieer-and-fafin Kurds (YPG) hand over territory to Syria/Assad. Sooner or later the US will turn against the Kurds-most likely invite Turkey-to avoid Kurds handing over all of the Kurdish held area's in Syria to Assad government. The US did not protect Kurds from Turkey in Afrin. https://sputniknews.com/middleeast/201802251061966101-sdf-pass-territory-syrian-army/
(DJ-With the US opening an embassy in Jerusalem may 10-support for US presence in the region will be minimum-also in Iraq, Turkey, Jordan, Afghanistan, Pakistan).

Korea

"The west" (US, Australia, Japan, UK, Taiwan) is preparing to bring "peace and prosperity"to North Korea (and most likely regime change-another dictator to South Korea). Hal Turner expect this war to start for march 20:
According to an article from the February 23 London Express Newspaper (Here), The United States is likely to ATTACK North Korea before the end of March.  This fits with my previous reports to you, wherein I stated on this web site and on my talk-radio shows saying I expect it to begin "Before March 20."

Thanks, DJ!!  You are amazingly prolific!! 

I am especially alarmed that Russian mercenaries have attacked US troop in Syria: 


Perspective from the Russian mercenaries, who took heavy losses from the US counter-attack:


Putin is attempting to re-created the old Soviet Union and is following their methodologies.  I had hoped for better during the Gorbachev and Yeltsin years, but those are far behind us now.

Syria

As expected pro-Assad forces started the ground attack against western backed terrorist in East Ghouta. 
Since the target of these operations are terrorist on UN terror-lists-the west is limited in what it can say. 
Bringing "humanitarian aid"(and weapons) to the "rebels" (the civilians do not get it) and getting western agents out-so far did not happen. 
Hal Turners story on Israeli firing missiles at a Damascus airbase-yesterday was incorrect-but may signal Israel coordinating rebels.
One can expect "the west"to do what they can to support their "rebels". Russia/Syria seems to be quite succesfull in creating a no-fly zone (and dealing with groups using missiles). https://www.rt.com/newsline/419776-damascus-terrorists-operation-continue/, http://www.moonofalabama.org/2018/02/syria-the-unsc-mandated-ceasefire-will-not-hold.html,

Afrin

http://theduran.com/syria-turkey-russia-kurds-struggle-afrin/ Russia is doing a balancing act between Turkey and Syria. Turkey would like to occupy the Syrian border area-support their "rebels" (salafists, Turkmen). But Russia may be able to make Turkey accept a smaller border-safety-zone. The Kurds had a chance to make deals with Assad-not doing so means facing Turkey. 
https://southfront.org/turkish-army-captures-key-town-kills-dozens-of-kurdish-fighters-in-afrin-area/. Syria does want Turkey to leave Syria-but also wants the Kurds to accept Assad-government.
Since earlier transfer of land by SDF to pro-Assad forces ended in a US mass-murder new transfers will most likely be done with Russian air cover.

US-Iran-Russia in Syria

The february 7 attack on pro-Assad forces in East Syria-Deir Ezzour-was a de facto declaration of war of the US on Russia and Iran in Syria. It may have killed over 200 Russians, several hundred other pro-Assad forces (some Kurds are pro-Assad).
The february 10 Israeli air strikes on targets in Syria a de facto declaration of war by Israel. The present situation in Syria is a Russian/Iran reaction. 
The US had three proxy armies in Syria; IS, Kurds and alnusra-like (=alquada). IS is almost beaten. The Kurds do not trust the US any longer. Alnusra etc. are fighting eachother in NW Syria. So the US only has "solid ground" in Al Tanf-near the Jordan/Iraq border (blocking the Damascus-Baghdad road). 
Russia will not accept another "airstrike"on Russians/pro-Assad forces without air defense. 

International protest


Korea


Propaganda war

https://www.rt.com/news/419777-pozner-interview-al-jazeera/ DJ-Al Jazera is Qatar TV, Qatar was financing groups like IS.

DJ-A lot of diplomacy most likely going on behind closed doors to avoid an open US-Russia confrontation
(in Ukraine, Syria, Korea) or to find allies. The Syria-war is in a new phase-may get out of control.

first pictures of children with gas masks from East Goutha.

France24 described what remained of Russian "Vagner"fighters as "minced meat".
From Hal Turner:

The Russian government has downplayed recent strikes by the United States on Russian mercenaries in Syria, however, recordings from fighters on the ground reveal just how hard U.S. forces hit them.

“One squadron *****ing lost 200 people … right away, another one lost 10 people … and I don’t know about the third squadron but it got torn up pretty badly, too … So three squadrons took a beating,” a man believed to be a Russian contract soldier said in the first of three audio recordings obtained from a source close to the Kremlin by Polygraph.info, a fact-checking website affiliated with Voice of America.

“They beat our asses like we were little pieces of *****,” the man said.

A U.S.-led strike following a raid on a Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) base where U.S. troops were stationed is believed to have killed hundreds of Russian military contractors fighting alongside pro-Syrian irregular forces. The U.S. forces hammered the attackers with heavy artillery and air strikes. 

The recordings reveal that the mercenaries, outgunned and lacking essential armor support, never stood a chance.

-“They were all shelling the holy ***** out of it and our guys didn’t have anything besides the assault rifles … nothing at all, I’m not even talking about shoulder-fired SAMs or anything like that… they tore us to pieces, put us through hell,” the man in the recording revealed, calling the incident a “total *****up, another humiliation.”

At least 218 Russian PMC's were killed.  No word on how many Syrian partners.  Pentagon sources say the dead Syrian tally is "many times the number of dead Russians."

http://www.rudaw.net/english/world/24022018 (Rudaw=Kurdish press) Syria wanted Afrin (NW Syria) included in ceasefire.
http://www.rudaw.net/english/kurdistan/240220181 US to send Erbil 365milion US$ to pay for salaries
http://www.rudaw.net/english/analysis/24022018 Russia in Afrin would de-escalate (DJ-Israel would welcome Russians in a bufferzone east of Golan Heights to keep Iran at a distance)

Russia will defend Israel when Iran attacks Israel, when Israel attacks Iran it will defend Iran.
China will defend Korea when attacked by the US, but when Korea attacks the US China will not defend Korea.

February 7 the US attacked Russian PMC's (private Military Contractors), proxy forces to stop a handover of an oil-field. The US would not have attacked regular Russian forces. (I do not believe the US story-the US did know who they were attacking-that there was no air defense. It was meant to make a signal at Putin (and the Russian march 18 elections). 

No way Russia will forget this US act. The US has 2000 (to 5000) US military and the same number(s) of PMC's in Syria....what the US can do to Russia.

This month-february-the world did change, not becoming a better place. ( The 1% claiming to own up to 80% of all there is to own on this planet should start to worry. Things will change.)

Syria

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jHOfMc-Oc84 Israeli News Live-The US State dep. calling for support of alquada-linked "white helmets". 


http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/ The number of people killed by the US war in Iraq is getting close to 1,5 milion, the costs close to 2000 billion (most of it went as profit to companies/politicians making money out of wars they start for profit). 

http://theduran.com/east-ghouta-last-great-battle-syrian-war/ (DJ-just like in the Aleppo battle hundreds of hospitals will be hit-according to western media. The reality is-just like in Aleppo-the west is supporting terrorists-according to UN.)

Turkey

http://halturnerradioshow.com/index.php/news/world-news/2126-turkish-president-calls-up-military-reserves-tells-nation-on-the-eve-of-resurrection-of-ottoman-empire DJ-Turkey may be preparing for anti-Kurdish operations in eastern Syria (and may start fighting US forces when they get in the way. DJ-When the US would try to prevent pro-Assad forces moving into east Syria the Kurds may turn against those US occupation-forces. Russia will not allow another mass-murder of pro-Assad forces/Russian PMC's (whit the US claiming pro-Syrian forces were attacking "something" inside Syria as being an excuse. The US occupation of East Syria is against international law-the UN has lost all credit by not discussing this crime.)

Manbij-East Syria/ US-Russia confrontation in Syria

DJ-Both in Afrin and to the east Kurdish forces will not be able to stop the Turkish army. Russia is willing to negotiate. https://sputniknews.com/world/201802261061991645-russia-syria-threats/ and https://sputniknews.com/middleeast/201802261061996077-damascus-syria-east-ghouta-operation/. Erdogan once was saved by Russian special forces during the coup attempt. Turkey needs Russian (Iran, China) investments. The US (and Israel, Saudi Arabia) want to split up Syria. 

DJ-A possible scenario could be that Turkey-Iran-Russia and Syria can agree on Russian, Iran forces on the Turkey-Syria border. For Turkey the main goal is to stop supplies for Kurds fighting for a Kurdish State in Turkey. The Kurds are not happy to let pro-Assad forces into Kurdish held area's but when they have to make a choice between Turkish forces or pro-Assad forces they (mostly) prefer pro-Assad forces. 
The US (and Israel-buyer of SDF/East Syria oil) does want to keep income of East Syria oil and gas from the Damascus government. 

In my opinion the risk for a US-Russia/Iran (Hezbollah, Afghan, Pakistan, Iraq shia-forces) is very real. Most likely the US is looking for support for "further actions" in Syria, Korea, Ukraine.

Syria

While the propaganda-war in the media goes full blown-with alquada white helmets as heroes-it looked like western activity inside Syria was limited. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4581x1MSLY-Israeli News Live making clear criticism does not mean being anti US or anti Israel (the INL has a background in both countries-also military).

US attack on pro-Assad forces (feb 26)


Chemical attack claim

The "rebels/fighters" (western propaganda) or "terrorists" (Syria, Russia but also according to UN) came with a claim of chemical attack from day one of the East Ghouta offensive. That offensive is in full international spotlight-pro-Assad forces would be unwise to use chemical weapons.

UN

https://www.rt.com/news/419888-yemen-resolution-russia-iran-veto/ DJ-The US tried to blame the Yemen war on Iran but failed to do so in the UN. 

DJ-In Syria it is good news that Russia/Syria created "room" for civilians to get out of East Ghouta. https://sputniknews.com/middleeast/201802261062013696-terrorists-east-ghouta-civilians-hostages/ The "western backed terrorists" use civilians as propaganda (or even worse https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/graphic-18-fsa-fighters-kidnap-9-year-old-boy-demand-1-million-ransom-video/ Free Syrian Army is backed by a.o. US, UK)

Western airstrikes

https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/us-led-coalition-denies-reports-deadly-airstrikes-syrias-deir-ez-zor/ US-led-coalition airstrikes killed over 2300 civilians in Raqqa in 2017, so far the number of people killed by the Turkish invasion (against the Kurds) killed more people than the East-Ghouta operation. http://theduran.com/crazy-erdogan-makes-girl-cry-on-stage-telling-her-she-will-be-martyred-video/ (DJ-Can Erdogan get arrested for child-molesting ? https://southfront.org/turkey-deploys-special-operations-forces-afrin-preparing-new-phase-operation-afrin/ DJ-Turkey may want to concentrate-for the moment-on Afrin NW-Syria. They may have up to 30% of that area under their control. After Afrin Turkey has several options-move south of Afrin "to stabilize" the area, move into Eastern Syria-to put pressure on the Kurds, US-or wait how talks develop. On march 18 Turkey, Russia, Iran will meet again.)

DJ-In general "the west" is not united to start a (major) offensive in Syria-for the moment it will be "a war of words" (bad Putin, bad Assad etc.) In Israel Netanyahu is trying to stay PM-but may be in prison for corruption soon. In the US it is clear the US has no clear plan on what to do (anywere-no realistic plan for North Korea, no plan for Afghanistan, Iraq-let alone for starting new wars). 

The west is not even united on the Syria cease-fire. Terrorists were excluded, Afrin unclear-but a lot of different interpretations going on.
