Russia Is Back

As DC watches helplessly while Putin bombs the daylights out of their pet terrorists it becomes apparent to all and sundy, which is to say the tiny minority of the Western population capable of attending rationally to political reality, that US foreign policy since 9/11 has been based on a lie. There is no US War on Terror, instead there's a US war for global hegemony fought by terrorist proxies.

The problem this revelation creates for Obama is to decide: should he acknowledge that the ISIS liver-eaters and head-choppers, Al Qaeda, the KLA and the countless other terrorist groups armed and directed by the US are indeed "our guys," fully bought and paid for by the United States of Sanctimonious Aggression (US of SA), or does he just call off the whole Project for the New American Century, which necessitated the "New Pearl Harbor", i.e., 9/11, to kickstart the whole process.

The difficulty is that abandoning the imperial project could involve massive internal recriminations. How could the US Government acknowledge that 9/11 was an inside job made possible by a 9/11 NORAD stand-down ordered by Dick Cheney, without then trying Cheney, Dubya, Rummy and a bunch of other NeoCons for treason? 

Such dire consequences must, obviously, be avoided by all possible means including, if necessary, World War III and a nuclear holocaust. However, the attention span of the majority of Americans is apparently so short that selling the idea that backing terrorism has always been the American way may not prove difficult. Indeed, terrorism, has been the way with all empires, so in this respect the vile brutality of the US of SA has been perfectly normal and entirely rational. So abandoning the now ineffectual ISIS and other scum organized, financed and directed by the US of SA to commit atrocities against the people of any country that refuses to bow the knee to US Empire can be presented as a great moral step forward, without the great super-distracted, pornography-addled, reality-TV-watching, social-media-absorbed, toxic GMO- and over-sweetened-food-stuffed American public having any clue whatever as to what's going on. 

The Saker: Week One of the Russian Military Intervention in Syria

Listen you Russkie Commie, I mean Fascist, bastards, you've buggered up our regime change operation in Syria, so now we're gonna kill as many Russians there as we can. And the same to your Commie Chink friends. 
Yep, Cold War II has begun.

"Probably 60 to 80 percent of the arms that America shoveled in have gone to al-Qaida and its affiliates," said Joshua Landis, a Syria expert at the University of Oklahoma.

Zero Hedge: Russia is bombing “terrorists” in Syria, and the US is understandably peeved
A day after the bombing began, Obama’s Defence Secretary Ashton Carter complained that most Russian strikes “were in areas where there were probably not ISIL (IS) forces”.

Anonymously, US officials accused Russia of deliberately targeting CIA-sponsored “moderate” rebels to shore-up the regime of Bashir al-Assad.

Only two of Russia’s 57 airstrikes have hit ISIS, opined Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu in similar fashion. The rest have hit “the moderate opposition, the only forces fighting ISIS in Syria,” he said.
Zero Hedge: The Tragic Ending To Obama's Bay Of Pigs: CIA Hands Over Syria To Russia

One week ago, when summarizing the current state of play in Syria, we said that for Obama, "this is shaping up to be the most spectacular US foreign policy debacle since Vietnam." Yesterday, in tacit confirmation of this assessment, the Obama administration threw in the towel on one of the most contentious programs it has implemented in "fighting ISIS", when the Defense Department announced it was abandoning the goal of a U.S.-trained Syrian force.

But this, so far, partial admission of failure only takes care of one part of Obama's problem: there is the question of the "other" rebels supported by the US, those who are not part of the officially-disclosed public program with the fake goal of fighting ISIS; we are talking, of course, about the nearly 10,000 CIA-supported "other rebels", or technically mercenaries, whose only task is to take down Assad. 

PressTV: US pulls aircraft carrier out of Persian Gulf as Russian ships enter

This seems to confirm that aircraft carriers are only useful in colonial wars against Third-World people, provide that is, that those Third-Worlders have not been armed by Russia or China with supersonic anti-ship cruise missiles, as is the case with the people of Iran.

It also suggests that the US is contemplating some violent response to Russia's action against American-backed anti-Assad terrorists and do not wish to provide the Russians with the easy payback option of sinking an aircraft carrier with a missile fired by persons unknown and appearing out of nowhere in a rubber boat. 

Sputnik: US Rerouting Aircraft to Avoid Russians in Syria 'Humiliating' - McCain
We can’t be dictated by the Russians as to where the United States of American can fly airplanes.said Senator McCain.
In fact, right now, the US is being "dictated by the Russians as to where the United States of America can fly airplanes." What's more, they either have to get used to it, or they have to launch an overt war of aggression against Syria and Syria's ally Russia.

America's barbaric allies.

"Predicts", is that quite the right word? Or should it have been "Promises."

US Aircraft carriers may be helpless against an adversary known for its expertise with rockets, but the the US can still do some dirty work with a bunch of cannibals, rapists and head choppers.
