[ Ed. note – From Russia Insider we have humorous treatment of a serious subject–Israel’s second attack in two days against the Syrian Army in the Quneitra province. Today’s attack reportedly hit two artillery launchers and an ammunition truck and follows close on the heels of a strike which occurred Saturday in which the Israelis targeted a Syrian tank and artillery positions–all supposedly over “stray shells” which landed in Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. Two Syrian soldiers have reportedly been killed in the attacks.

Qatar: Center Stage in a World at War?

Doha, Qatar

[Ed note – An interesting analysis on the dispute between Qatar and Saudi Arabia, and its potential for engulfing the rest of the Middle East and exploding into World War III, has been posted by blogger Green Crow. The piece is written by “James” and reposted from his Winter Patriot blog. Qatar, in his analysis, sees US influence in the Middle East waning and is pivoting toward Iran, Syria, and Russia, and he notes that both Iran and Russia have sent food shipments to Qatar in order to break the blockade imposed by the Saudis. Turkey is now openly siding with the Qataris as well–and this also makes perfect sense. US support for the Kurds in Syria–with the US seemingly now moving in the direction of setting up a de facto Kurdish state–would of course have to be a major, MAJOR “red line” for Turkey. This of course puts two NATO allies, the US and Turkey, at odds with each other. Bottom line: there is a major shift in alliances occurring.

The Martyrs of the Syrian Arab Army

To the Martyrs of the Syrian Arab Army and their Families:

The photo above is a screen shot from one of those videos.

White Helmets: Severed Heads of Syrian Soldiers Paraded as Trophies–Endorsed by Channel 4

[ Ed. note – Vanessa Beeley has posted an article lambasting British Channel 4 over a shameless segment lauding the Syrian White Helmets. Ironically, the segment aired just as new videos have been released containing shocking footage of terrorists desecrating the bodies of Syrian Arab Army soldiers. One of the videos shows a White Helmet climbing up into the bed of a pickup truck piled with soldiers’ bodies.

“We Want to Deescalate the Situation,” US Says One Day After Shooting Down Syrian Plane

It’s hard to know who is making policy in Washington these days. Did the decision to shoot down a Syrian plane come out of the White House? The Pentagon? The CIA? The State Department? Hard to say for sure, but White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer claims the US is seeking a “deescalation” of the situation in Syria.

Tensions Escalate Over Shoot-down of Syrian Jet

The Russian Ministry of Defense is calling yesterday’s downing of a Syrian military plane “a cynical violation of Syria’s sovereignty” as well as “a deliberate default on their [the US Coalition’s] obligations under the memorandum on on preventing incidents and providing for safe flights during operations in Syria signed on October 20, 2015.”
