[ Ed. note – Yesterday I posted an article from Sputnik about a report suggesting that the US is now pursuing a new strategy, one aimed at establishing a 28,000-square-kilometer Kurdish enclave in eastern Syria. The area is said to be three times the size of Lebanon.
[ Ed. note – If the report below is true, then the US is setting the stage for continued warfare in Syria, with the possibility of dramatic escalation depending on whether Russia will be content to sit back and allow the plans to proceed. A partitioning of this nature would also be an affront to the sacrifices made by the brave Syrians who fought and died for their country. ]
The two videos above were posted by South Front a month apart, the one on Hezbollah capabilities posted on November 18, while the video assessing Israeli capabilities appeared on December 20. Some of the “scenarios” mentioned may play out sooner than many have expected…
[ Ed. note – The article below was initially published in Vogue Magazine in early 2011. I am re-posting it here as it provides a striking look back at Syria as it was just prior to the outbreak of the neocon-instigated regime-change war which so devastated the country.
[ Ed. note – The article below was originally published at The New Eastern Outlook website. It’s author, Petr Lvov, makes a compelling argument that Israel and Saudia Arabia are “backed into a corner and in a state of despair” over their failures in Syria and are now conspiring to create a scenario that would “force the US to attack Iran.”
[ Ed. note – The video above contains Russian Christmas music. I thought it very fitting to post given the news which appeared yesterday on the Russian Faith website–namely that the Russian Orthodox Church has vowed to help Christian communities in Syria rebuild. The war in Syria has in some respects been a war against Christianity.

Perhaps at some point we’ll see a sly Zionist pop up somewhere claiming the Kurds are an “ancient biblical people.”
(And doubtless, if so, he’d have plenty of money to buy off plenty of historians to “verify” his claim).
And maybe in the not-so-distant future we could even anticipate publication of a brand new modern English translation of the Bible with a rewording of the Book of Genesis to include the following: “So Abraham and his wife Sarah and his nephew Lot set out from Harran, but on the way they stopped off and got down and partied with their cousins, the Kurds, before heading off to conquer the land of Caanan.”
Don’t laugh. In the world we’re presently living in absurdities of this nature are well within the possible.
