And this means that they also support the current (and elected) government of Syria, and therefore opposed to the U.S. This is a very big development and clearly intended as a signal to the U.S.
Which means that as of this moment, every major world superpower is officially involved in the Syrian war, which has on various occasions been aptly called a powderkeg for what may be the next global military conflict - to be sure, all required players are now officially involved.
Vietnam was not enough to dissuade this administration from inserting itself into the internal affairs of another Southeast Asian nation. The present blood bath in Syria is not enough to discourage US involvement in a brewing civil war. In fact, this administration is up to its old tricks by fermenting a civil war in order to get the corrupt leader it wants back in power and they do not care how many Americans, or people in this country, must die in the process. And the real elite, the real people who start every war, profit from supplying both sides of every war, are jumping for joy at their new-found great adventure.
Thailand has been the victim of several false flag attacks, allegedly sponsored by the Obama Administration. The purpose of these false flag attacks is to restore control of the government back into the hands of the corrupt, drug-running, child-trafficking, gun-running former Prime Minister.
The TPP has entered the picture, with regard to Thailand’s current dilemma. The former regime wanted to be included in the emerging TPP before the former Prime Minister was ousted from power. My source told me that the TPP, which of course represents rule by corporation and not elected government. The corporate rule would allow Thailand’s vast drug and child-sex empire to be controlled by corporate rule without the overt influence of any elected government. The people’s actions which removed the former Prime Minister prevented the TPP and Thailand from forming a legal and binding relationship. The reader may justifiably ask if there is any proof of these claims of TPP corruption? The answer is a resounding, yes! However, one must rely on Eastern media for the facts, because the truth will never be told in the Western media.
Ali Shamkhani, Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, announced Tuesday that Iran is letting Russia use its infrastructure to fight against terrorism in Syria, IRNA reported.
According to TASS, citing a Russian Defense Ministry report, “Long-range bombers Tupolev-22M3 and frontline bombers Sukhoi-34 took off from the Hamadan air base in Iran carrying the full bomb load to deal a massive air strike against facilities of the terrorist groups Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra in Aleppo, Deir ez-Zor and Idlib provinces.”
The bombers destroyed five large armament depots, three command posts and militants’ training camps used by terrorists for operations in Aleppo, the report said.
The report added that Russia’s Sukhoi-30SM and Sukhoi-35 from the Hmeymim base in Syria provided protection, and “all planes coped with their tasks and returned to base.”
This is the first time Russian planes have used an Iranian airfield for the operation in Syria. On all previous occasions Russia’s long-range bombers operated from airfields in Russia, and front-line bombers flew out of Hmeymim in Syria.
Talk about unusual. On Aug. 10, the U.S. Air Force announced it had sent its B-2 Spirit stealth bombers to join older, non-stealthy B-52 Stratofortresses and B-1 Lancers on Guam.
It's an extraordinary show of force in the Pacific region, because for the first time ever, America has based all three heavy bomber types on the island at once.
Deborah Lee James, the Air Force secretary, described the deployments as providing a "valuable opportunity for our bomber crews to integrate and train together, as well as with our allies and partners through the region in a variety of missions."
But James did not elaborate on just how unusual the arrangement actually is, nor did she expand on any deeper possible reasons for basing Spirits, Lancers, and Stratofortresses at the same base at same time — all within striking distance of China and North Korea.
The latest deployment began on Aug. 6 when a group of B-1s arrived at Guam to take over from the B-52s. These aircraft were part of what the Pentagon calls the "Continuous Bomber Presence" mission, or CBP. The B-52s will head back to the continental United States at the end of August.
On Aug. 10, the B-2s landed for a separate but similar "bomber assurance and deterrence deployment," or BAAD. We don't know when the stealth bombers and their crews will return home to their base in Missouri.
In July, Beijing sent one of its own H-6K bombers to fly over the disputed Scarborough Shoal in the South China Sea. That month, among a host of other rulings, a U.N. tribunal declared Chinese ships had illegally blocked Philippine fisherman from entering the area.
China's nominally civilian maritime police force has routinely blocked foreign activities around Scarborough and other small islands to help reinforce Beijing's claims. Chinese officials have also recently boasted about a slew of new, deadly surface to air and ballistic missiles that could challenge American planes and ships.
Amid ongoing tensions in the East China Sea, Japan’s coast guard has released video showing Chinese vessels entering disputed waters near the Senkaku Islands.
"Your ship has intruded into the territorial waters of our country," says an electronic message sent from the Japanese patrol ship Aguni to one of the Chinese vessels, according to the Japan Times.
