The Eighth day: Pentagon Warmongers Torpedoed Cease-fire Deal Rather Than Give Up “ISIS” Info to Syrians and Russians as per the Agreement

by Scott Creighton

This is fucking amazing.

On Sept. 12th, the US entered into a cease-fire agreement with Russia and Syria. The agreement promised to bring about a political solution to the 5 year regime change mess taking place in Syria.

On Sept. 17th US, British, Danish and Australian forces carried out a well-planned (two to three days in the planning stages) and sustained (well over 30 minutes) attack on Syrian troops outside Deir ez-Zor which killed 62 Syrian soldiers and wounded another 100 or so. The Syrian forces at the time were engaged in a fight with “ISIS”, trying to keep them from an airport at that location. “ISIS” wanted the airport for resupply. After the Russians demanded the US-led coalition stop attacking Syrian forces, the US agreed and sat back and did nothing as “ISIS” took advantage of the incident and advanced on the airport.

None of that is in dispute.

On Sept. 19th, a UN convoy of aid being delivered to the people trapped in the area of Aleppo controlled by our “moderate” terrorists was attacked and destroyed. The US immediately blamed Russia or Syria or both for this war crime. More than likely, it was the “moderate” terrorists launching “barrel bombs” from their “hell cannons”. The Russians and Syrians had no motive to attack the convoy and destroy the peace plan while the terrorists had EVERY REASON to do it. It is this event, not the US attacking Syrian troops, that is being blamed for officially ending the peace deal.

Currently on every MSM outlet, the talking heads are actually ranting about how President Obama should have attacked Syria like Bush did to Iraq all those years ago. They say that it is “obvious” that Russia attacked the convoy and that it is a war crime. They are begging for all out war in Syria based on the lie that Russia attacked the convoy. Aside from begging for war with Syria we should not forget that both Russia and Iran as well are there on the ground in Syria and any war involving targeting Syrian troops or Syrian political infrastructure would certainly risk escalation with one or both of those major military powerhouses.

The MSM talking heads are doing the PR bidding of the treasonous US military leadership who deliberately tanked the cease-fire agreement.

“What happened today has dealt a serious blow to efforts to bring peace to Syria,” said a senior US administration official, who added that the strike “raises very serious questions about whether the Russians can deliver their end of the arrangement” to rein in the Syrian regime. ” CNN

Pentagon leadership has been opposed to this deal from the beginning and there is good reason why: because if it had lasted 8 days, they would have to have given up information on the locations of “ISIS” and al Nusra to the Syrians and the Russians. The fact that the attack on Syrian troops happened 6 days into the deal and the attack on the US convoy took place on the key 8th and final day should make it perfectly clear Pentagon officials deliberately undermined the deal so they wouldn’t have to give up “ISIS” to the Russians.

“On Tuesday at the Pentagon, officials would not even agree that if a cessation of violence in Syria held for seven days — the initial part of the deal — the Defense Department would put in place its part of the agreement on the eighth day: an extraordinary collaboration between the United States and Russia that calls for the American military to share information with Moscow on Islamic State targets in Syria.” New York Times

The timing of this could not be more obvious. Military leaders who wanted no part of handing over “ISIS” info to the Russians had 8 days to kill the deal and that’s exactly what happened under extremely suspect circumstances.

The US-backed “moderate” terrorists in Syria continued their attacks throughout the course of the cease-fire agreement while Russian and Syrian forces held to the accord in spite of them. Clearly the “moderate” regime change contractors in the area wanted to see the deal fail just as our military leadership did. So they did their part, which in my opinion, culminated in the brutal attack on the US aid convoy with their “hell cannons” and “barrel bombs”

There is a long history of US support of both “ISIS” and the new “freedom fighters” in the area, the Kurds. sec. of Defense Ash Carter has made his opinions on the matter of the Kurds taking and holding parts of Syria very public.

On July 20th,“We have now have momentum in this fight and clear results on the ground… We must ensure that our partners on the ground (freedom fighter Kurds) have what they need to win the fight and then hold, rebuild, and govern their territory (“Rojava”),” Sec. of Defense Ash Carter, today

On July 18th, SANA News Agency reported on a coalition airstrike on Manbij which killed over 120 civilians. The new “freedom fighters”, the Kurds, were in the process of trying to take and hold the city under the guise of “fighting ISIS”. An official letter of complaint was sent to the UN in which they said “US, French, Turkish, Saudi Arabian, British and Qatari continued support to the terrorist organizations that they name “moderate groups, like Jabhat al-Nusra, Jaish al-Fatah, Jaish al-Islam, Liwa al-Tawhid and other terrorist organizations affiliated to the ISIS and al-Qaeda is a clear evidence that these states are colluding and cooperating with the terrorist groups, and an indication to their non-seriousness in combating terrorism.”

On Aug. 16th, I reported on the news that US-led coalition forces allowed “hundreds” of  “ISIS” fighters to leave the city of Manbij with the vehicles, to head north to begin another destabilization campaign in a Syrian city on the border with Turkey. “US Army Col. Carver, a spokesman for the US-led coalition fighters, told Pentagon reporters the decision to let Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) convoys leave the city was made by commanders of the Syrian Democratic Force“. The Kurds were left to “mop up pockets of resistance” in the city that refused to surrender to their rule until the US and coalition forces literally bombed them into submission.

On Sept. 15th, the Washington Post reported the Pentagon was “grudgingly supporting the cease-fire agreement with Russia regarding our Syrian regime change operation. Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter and Gen. Joseph L. Votel, head of the U.S. Central Command made it very clear they wanted no part of a peace deal that would bring an end to the violence in Syria.

Now that the peace deal has been successfully torpedoed by US military interests who were clearly operating in direct violation to a policy set by the president and Sec. of State, President Obama is being reported as finally considering directly arming our new “freedom fighters” in Syria, the Kurds.

One has to ask why there was a clause in the cease-fire agreement that the US would only give up their information on “ISIS” after an eight day trial period came to a successful conclusion.

I thought we were at war with “ISIS” and would gladly accept any help from other nations in our big tent “coalition”

Once again, the opinions of defense department heads, the actions of our “moderates” continuing to attack targets in Syria and the timing of these two more prominent attacks (the “accidental” attack on the Syrian troops and the bombing of the UN aid convoy by our “moderates” in Syria) leave no question in my mind that someone high ranking in the US military, has committed treason against the president, the Sec. of State and the people of this country and they apparently did so in order to keep from giving up “ISIS” to the Russians.

As irresponsible and as potentially treasonous as these actions were, we have to remember, this is not just Syria we are talking about but Iran and Russia as well and this breathless push toward open engagement with the Syrian military would not only destabilize that nation but also the entire Middle East as well. We are literally talking about flying attack missions against Syrian positions in a country that has done nothing to us and who just might be hanging out with Russian troops. The potential for catastrophic consequences of this overt act of defiance from the military leadership could be nothing short of WWIII and that is not hyperbole but a rational and measured logical conclusion drawn by evaluating the relevant facts on the ground. This is brinksmanship going beyond the pale of rational behavior. If they think the Russians, the Turks and the Iranians will back out of the way as they declare and wage open warfare on YET ANOTHER MIDDLE EAST COUNTRY BASED ON LIES… they are dead wrong… and perhaps that is what these ultimate warmongers want.

I will say this: my father was career military and he served proudly as did all the co-workers and friends of his that I met. This is NOT “the military” I am talking about… this is a small cabal of leaders who have made this decision and given these orders and by doing so, they have not only doomed Syria to more death and destruction, but they have potentially put the lives of countless military service men and women in harm’s way all in service of something beyond wicked. They killed a peace deal on behalf of “ISIS” and at the risk of igniting a larger, more deadly Middle East conflict. One that very well may lead to world war.

I can only say on behalf of our service men and women and the citizens of this country and those in Syria and the Middle East, that I hope the political establishment in D.C. has the fortitude and the courage to hold these warmongers responsible for these actions and take them into custody, starting with Sec. of Defense Ash Carter.

Please help keep us up and running if you can.

  1. My mother read this and said “oh great, now I got to move”… lol poor thing

  2. Hey Scott: the news of arming the kurds was to be my next post- they’ve armed the kurds previously- tons and tons of weapons
    to Turkey’s dismay

    Thanks for the link to!
    and good job !

  3. “If they think the Russians, the Turks and the Iranians will back out of the way…they are dead wrong…” ~S.C.

    I wish I could agree with that, but like I said before, if the Russians truly had a backbone, they would have ended the nightmares in Syria and Ukraine by now. The “Russian intervention” in Syria that began a year ago (30 Sep 2015) has degenerated into a farce.

    If the Russians had a backbone, they would not have agreed to team up with the USA against the USA’s own terrorist mercenaries. That absurdity was embarrassing to see.

    If the Russians had a backbone, they would refuse to attend any meetings with the lying Americans.

    If the Russians had a backbone, would not continually fall for US tricks such as those fake “cease fires.”

    If the Russians had a backbone, they would withdraw from Syria, and let the Western Empire destroy Syria’s government, or else they would send in the full Russian military to secure Syria once and for all. One or the other.

    After the USA murdered those 62 Syrian soldiers, the Russians called an emergency meeting of the UNSC, which Samantha Power angrily walked out of. But let Samantha Power call a meeting, and the Russians come running.

    It’s pathetic.

    When Hillary takes power, I suspect that the Russians will decide that Syria is not worth a full scale war with the USA. They will let Hillary do to Syria what Obama did to Libya.

    In my opinion the Western Empire will eventually fall because of internal corruption, not because of Russian resistance.

    • may very well be true however, I think it is safe too say Assad would be gone and Syria would have gone the way of Yugoslavia by now had they not helped the little they have in the country. Also, in Ukraine, I think it’s also safe too say that Kiev and the US would have invaded Donbass by now if the Russians weren’t positioned where they are and filming everything from the sky with their drones, right? So, yeah, they should do more, but short of invading, what more are they to do?

      • “So, yeah, the Russians should do more, but short of invading, what more are they to do?” ~ S.C.

        How about this to start with. I would like to see the Russians…

        [1] Become honest and candid. Limiting oneself to euphemisms and craven “civility” wins no respect. Cease using US-dictated “war-on-terror” phraseology, including “intervention,” and “ISIS.”™ Call the “moderates” what they are…terrorist mercenaries. Call the “civil war” a proxy war. When the Western Empire is caught in a lie, call it a lie. Do not say that a belligerent imperialist claim is “unhelpful.”

        [2] Consider conducting several false flags like the USA does. Shoot down a few Russian aircraft (making sure that no Russian pilot gets hurt) and blame it on the USA. Set up a mobile field hospital (with no one inside) and film “moderates” (Russian actors with covered faces) destroying it, while dubbed voices shout, “Allah hu akbar!”

        [3] Reject all “cease fire” proposals. The USA uses such scams to stall for time.

        [4] Seal all border crossings nationwide. Let nothing enter Syria without inspection and authorization by the Russian and / or Syrian governments. This includes UN “aid conveys.” Seize all contraband. Warn everyone who tries to cross the desert that they will be subject to search. Warn smugglers that hostility will be met with annihilation

        [5] Don’t come running so quickly whenever the Western Empire calls a meeting of the UN Security Council. The UNSC is an utter travesty.

        [6] Be less timid in the media. When the Western Empire accuses Assad or Putin of being “dictators,” remind everyone that neither man invaded Iraq or Afghanistan, or destroyed Libya, or kills people with drones every day. US hypocrisy is infinite. Use that.

        • I agree with all of that. Remember, I have never said that Putin or Russia in general are heroes. In fact, I have written on several occasions that they are simply a “kinder gentler” version of neoliberal globalists with competing business interests to look out for and as much as our neoliberals wish to see them regime changed and neoliberalized in their fashion, so to, in my opinion, does the Russian business interests wish to see the dollar loose its hegemony over the world markets so they can replace it with something of their choosing. Syria is important to their business interests so they have gotten involved. Libya wasn’t. Nor was Sudan, Somalia, Yemen. See where I am going with this? As I have written, they have cut deals with the Kurds to support Greater Kurdistan already even though the Syrians and the Turks want no part of that. These guys aren’t heroes but right now, they seem to be at least partly opposed to certain aspects of the Syrian regime change op and that is what I am writing about. Not them being heroes.

          • I agree with you 100%.

            I can understand why some people romanticize the Russians. The Western Neoliberal Empire is so nightmarish that anything that opposes it can seem virtuous. However the Russians are competitors, not saviors. They have their own quirks. For example, they censor most porn sites on their Internet, which I think is silly. Police corruption in Russia is staggering (I’ve been there). Russians smoke more cigarettes per capita than any people on earth, including the Chinese, which tells us something about the stress level of Russian society. Russia says little or nothing about Israel’s horrendous treatment of Palestinians. Putin may run for a fourth term as president, which I think is a bit much. Top officers of Russia’s central bank are very neoliberal in their viewpoints. Indeed no one in the Russian government can be legitimately called anti-neo-liberal.

            That said, the flipside of falsely romanticizing the Russians as saviors is falsely romanticizing them as demons bent on world conquest, as the neocons do.

            So, when I accused the Russians of not showing much backbone, I meant I would like to see them end the war in Syria. Just shut it down. Stop the Western Empire, at least in Syria.

            If the Russians can’t be moral exemplars, then at least they can be formidable competitors. I don’t see them fulfilling that role in Syria. They have ended nothing. They just made it more complicated.

  4. This is real journalism. Keep at it Scott, intelligent people are listening to you.

  5. What do you think of this?

    30 Israeli, Foreign Intelligence Officers Killed in Russia’s Caliber Missile Attack in Aleppo

    he Russian warships fired three Caliber missiles at the foreign officers’ coordination operations room in Dar Ezza region in the Western part of Aleppo near Sam’an mountain, killing 30 Israeli and western officers,” the Arabic-language service of the Russian Sputnik news agency quoted battlefield source in Aleppo as saying on Wednesday.

    The operations room was located in the Western part of Aleppo province in the middle of sky-high Sam’an mountain and old caves. The region is deep into a chain of mountains.

    Several US, Turkish, Saudi, Qatari and British officers were also killed along with the Israeli officers. The foreign officers who were killed in the Aleppo operations room were directing the terrorists’ attacks in Aleppo and Idlib.

    If this is for real, then good riddance to a pack of rats that can now join their true master.

  6. Amal Clooney says she wants to prosecute Assad for war crimes. She considers herself uniquely qualified, since she is the wife of movie actor George Clooney.

    (Assad and the Syrian Army have been accused of various war crimes committed by the USA and its allies and proxies).


    Russia’s only aircraft carrier (Admiral Kuznetsov) is heading to Syria, but will not arrive until the end of October.


    Why does Russia only have one carrier, while the USA has ten? (Or nineteen if we count ships that can carry helicopters.)


    Russia considers aircraft carriers to be a waste of resources. Carriers are only good for attacking defenseless or lightly armed targets, like civilians in the Middle East. In a real war between evenly matched enemies, carriers would be sitting sucks. Anti-shipping missiles (especially Russian missiles) have become so advanced that there is no way to defend against them.

    In a real war, carriers would be destroyed in the first few minutes, even without nuclear weapons.


    Today in the UNSC, John Kerry demanded that all (Russian and Syrian) aircraft be grounded over the terrorist-infested parts of Syria to allow for “humanitarian aid deliveries” that the US-backed terrorists can attack again.

    Kerry all but directly blamed Russia for the US-ordered attack on the aid convoy last Monday.

    He said that a no-fly policy, “Would prevent the Syrian government from doing as it has done so often in the past, which is to attack civilian targets with the excuse that it is going after Nusra.”

    Meanwhile U.N. Secretary said Ban Ki-moon said it was time to discuss a Syrian transition of power (i.e. tome to enact a US-led regime change). He said the humanitarian crisis (caused by the US-led proxy war) “shames us all.”

    New Zealand Prime Minister John Key chaired today’s UNSC meeting. Mr. Key attacked the international community for “failing” Syria. (That is, for failing to stop the US proxy war). He said, “The Syrian government is responsible for starting this war.” (Which was started and is being waged by the USA and its allies against Syria). He said, “Syrians must reach agreement on their future government, but they cannot end this war by themselves.” (Since the USA will not end its proxy war.) Mr. Key said there should be yet another cease-fire. (So the US-backed terrorists can again violate it, thereby keeping the war going until Hillary is in the White House.)

    • wasn’t she the legal representative of the Ukrainian Orange Revolution Queen, Yulia Tymoshenko? The one that was set free after the new color revolution took hold and the neo-Nazis took over? Maybe that makes her qualified to help with this color revolution.

      • Scott you are correct. I had forgotten about that.

        Yulia Tymoshenko is a pro-EU, and pro-“free trade” neoliberal. She wants Ukraine to join NATO. These factors made her a darling of the Western Empire. John McCain and Angela Merkel are great fans of hers.

        In 2011 she was tried for corruption, and was removed from political office. Amal Almuddin told the European Court of Human Rights that despite Yulia Tymoshenko’s stolen billions, Tymoshenko was being treated unfairly. Tymoshenko was dying. Tymoshenko had an upset tummy. Tymoshenko cried a lot. Tymoshenko wasn’t sleeping well. And blah, blah, blah. (Cue violins.)

        In Feb 2014, Ms. Tymoshenko was freed (along with her stolen billions) when the USA engineered a coup against Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich.

        At that point Tymoshenko made a miraculous “recovery.”

        As for Bashar Assad, we know that Amal Almuddin is qualified to prosecute Assad, because Ms. Almuddin’s husband, George Clooney, won two Academy Awards. Moreover she and Clooney were married in Rome.

        If that isn’t a solid footing in international justice and jurisprudence, I don’t know what is.

  10. great to read this! I totally support Syrie and Russia and I truly believe they are doing the right thing! It is as if History is repeating itself (9/11). But I am not afraid that there will be another big war again! There is a lot going on behind the scenes to get the truth out! People are working around the clock to get the Bush/Clinton families into prison! Not only them but to go after the Cabal, the funny money system that is the evil of all.
