[Updated] U.S. To Suspend Diplomacy With Russia, Prepares 'Military Options', Russia Accuses U.S. Of Threatening Support For Nuclear Attack

With the information that has been reported in various news outlets (non-U.S. of course), war seems imminent. It's hard to recall a time in which rhetoric has been this inflamed between Russia and the U.S. This whole thing needs to stop and stop soon, or we will find ourselves in a growing war which would include Iran, Turkey, Hezbollah and possibly spreading into Jordan and Lebanon. The rate at which things are deteriorating is beyond alarming. 

US To Suspend Syria Diplomacy With Russia, Prepares "Military Options"

In the most dramatic diplomatic escalation involving the Syrian conflict in the past years, yesterday John Kerry issued an ultimatum to Russia, in which he warned his colleague Lavrov to stop bombing Aleppo or else the US would suspend all cooperation and diplomacy with Russia. 

24 hours later, this appears to be precisely what is about to take place, leading to an even greater geopolitical shock in Syria. According to Retuersthe United States is expected to tell Russia on Thursday it is suspending their diplomatic engagement on Syria following the Russian-backed Syrian government's intense attacks on Aleppo, U.S. officials said on condition of anonymity.

Why now and what happens next? According to US officials, the Obama administration is now considering tougher responses to the Russian-backed Syrian government assault on Aleppo, including military options. 

According to Reuters, the new discussions were being held at "staff level," and have yet to produce any recommendations to President Barack Obama, who has resisted ordering military action against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the country's multi-sided civil war. 
"The president has asked all of the agencies to put forward options, some familiar, some new, that we are very actively reviewing," Blinken said. "When we are able to work through these in the days ahead we'll have an opportunity to come back and talk about them in detail."
However, now that diplomacy with Russia is set to end, this will give the greenlight for Obama to send in US troops in Syria, with Putin certain to respond appropriately, in what will be the biggest military escalation in the Syrian proxy war in its five and a half year history.

State Dept. Threatens Terror Attacks in Russia if Moscow Keeps Fighting ISIS (Video)

[This video is worth watching]

In extraordinary comments that have gone virtually unnoticed by the media, U.S. State Department spokesman John Kirby threatened Moscow with terror attacks in Russian cities and even shoot downs of Russian jets if Vladimir Putin continued his fight against ISIS in Syria.

“Extremist groups will continue to exploit the vacuums that are there in Syria to expand their operations, which could include attacks against Russian interests, perhaps even Russian cities. Russia will continue to send troops home in body bags, and will continue to lose resources, perhaps even aircraft,” Kirby told reporters at Wednesday’s press briefing, adding that if the war in Syria continues “more Russian lives will be lost, more Russian aircraft will be shot down.”

While the comments will obviously be presented by the media as Kirby claiming that these will be the consequences of Moscow’s involvement in Syria, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova took the remarks as a thinly veiled threat.
“And those [acts of terrorism] will be perpetrated by ‘moderate’ [Syrian opposition groups]?” Zakharova asked in a Facebook post. “Just the ones that Washington has been unable to separate from Al-Nusra for as long as six months?”
“Don’t you think that such ventriloquism about ‘body bags,’ ‘terrorist attacks in Russian cities’ and ‘loss of aircraft,’ sounds more like a ‘get ’em’ command, rather than a diplomatic comment?” she added.
Is Kirby actually threatening to use the same “moderate” jihadists that the Obama administration has funded and armed to kill Russian troops, down Russian planes and slaughter Russian citizens in their own country?

As documented in the video below, tensions in Syria have heated up significantly after Washington bombed Syrian soldiers who were fighting against ISIS, an incident the U.S. claimed was an “accident”.
The Obama administration then claimed that Russia had attacked a UN aid convoy, although the exact circumstances of what happened remain murky.
A Jabhat al-Nusra unit commander also recently revealed that the group, which is an Al-Qaeda offshoot, was given American-made TOW missiles and other weapons “directly” from the U.S. and its allies.
“The Americans are on our side,” he stated.

Russia accuses US of threatening support for nuclear attack

The Russian Foreign Ministry is accusing the Pentagon of making a veiled threat to back its allies in an attack on Russia with nuclear weapons.
U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter on Monday accused Russia of "nuclear saber-rattling" and argued that even though the Cold War is long over, nuclear weapons are still needed to deter Russia and other potential aggressors from thinking they could get away with a nuclear attack.

Moscow responded Thursday by saying that Carter's statement amounted to the U.S. threatening to use its nuclear weapons in support of an aggression against Russia waged by its allies. It added that Russia will have to take retaliatory measures to protect its security.

Washington has Just Declared War on Russia

At this stage, Washington is completely incapable of discussing any serious political settlement in Syria, since it regards any peace process in this war-torn country as the harbinger of Moscow’s, Beijing’s and Tehran’s continuous presence in the region and the moving forward of several energy routes that will gives these states influence and wealth in the region well into the future, all of which means there will be no place for the West’s “avid defenders of democracy” at the table.

That is why the United States objected so vigorously to the release of the Russian-American cease-fire agreement details to the public and kept the discussion of the agreement as far away from the UN as it possibly could, out of fear there could be a UN resolution adopted that would make it mandatory to comply with.

That is also why, while keeping in mind its master-plan, Washington has used Syrian territory to start the largest indirect war in modern history to pursue its consequential transformation in a direct armed confrontation with Russia. A total of 80 states are fighting both directly and indirectly in Syria. It is no accident that on May 23, 2003, instead of gathering Iraqi forces into a single large unit, the US occupation administration disbanded the Iraqi army, creating pre-conditions for the rise of ISIS. In January 2012, in the midst of the Syrian civil war, the CIA created a “branch” of Al Qaeda in Syria – the notorious Jabhat al-Nusra. It’s no secret that the militants of this terrorist group at different points of time were treated in hospitals in Turkey and Israel – both faithful satellite-states of Washington. These steps were followed with the approval of the Turkish military’s invasion of Syria, which was launched on August 20.

To create preconditions for an open armed conflict with Russia, Washington has launched a massive propaganda campaign, aimed at discrediting Moscow at every juncture. It’s enough to remember the so-called “doping scandal” and the “revelations” that Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko made about the alleged presence of more than 30,000 Russian soldiers and hundreds of tanks in eastern Ukraine. And no matter how ridiculous and unfounded such allegations may be, Washington would still repeat them, as if it had no means to track a couple hundreds tanks anywhere on the face of the Earth and then provide irrefutable evidence of it to the public. Moreover, we hear repeated accusations about Moscow’s alleged involvement in the downing of the Malaysian Boeing MH-17 over Donbass and many others. And the list goes on. Looking at all these steps, one can’t help but remember the genius of Nazi propaganda – Joseph Goebbels – who swayed public perception with the continuous repetition of transparent lies up to and including the day of the Nazi invasion of Russia.

Russian MoD: We’re ready for Syria dialogue with US, but threats against our military unacceptable

The statement came in response to comments made by US State Department spokesperson John Kirby at a press briefing on Wednesday. Kirby said that if the war in Syria continues, “more Russian lives will be lost, more Russian aircraft will be shot down”as “extremist groups will continue to exploit the vacuums that are there in Syria to expand their operations, which could include attacks against Russian interests, perhaps even Russian cities.” 
Speaking on Thursday, Russian Ministry of Defense spokesman Major-General Igor Konashenkov said: “Once again we declare that we are fully prepared to continue the dialogue with the American side and carry on with the joint actions to combat terrorists in Syria.”
“However, even the slightest hints of a threat to our soldiers and Russian citizens must be excluded from this dialogue. The matter of safety of Russian citizens, wherever they may be, is not up for bargaining. It is our main and unconditional priority,” the spokesman stressed.


Mrs.C said... worries the coward-in-chief never backs up any of his "red lines". He is so anarchistic about his "legacy", which includes "no ground troops", he most likely will crawl away from any serious confrontation with Russia. After all, his evil minions give that example. Loretta Lynch, stated that all we need is "love" to fight Islamic terrorists, and hey, Mr Ed...ur Lurch...aka John Kerry, believes ya just gotta have a concert from his friend James Taylor, and everything in the world will be great! Yup, Putin circles ovomit like a shark smelling blood in the water. Putin knows ovomit is beyond weak.
What do we know from Scripture is the most important of all.
Will there be a nuke, EMP, most likely yes, on Damascus.
The U.S. will not be there for Israel during the on-slot against them in Isaiah 17
The nations surrounding Israel - God will bring His Judgement upon them and wipe them out.
Putin (should he be Gog) will end up on a horse, and subsequently dead on the mountains surrounding Israel.
We, His Church, will gone by the end of the Isaial 17 war which will happen very, very quickly! Look up Brothers & Sisters...our Redemption drawth nigh! Thank you Jesus! :)

Sometimes I wonder if something will happen to Putin and he will be replaced just before Gog-Magog...Who knows....OTOH, whoever it is, God will put a hook in his (Gog) jaws, so in that sense I guess it could be Putin (since God essentially makes it happen) - but at this point its so hard to see Putin being stupid enough to attack Israel.....Just thinking.....

What happened to Mr. "No boots on the ground"? For 8 years his only contribution has been desecrating the United States, and creating terrorist factions. Now we put my brother and sister marines on the ground in Syria? So we can aid the very terrorists who want us dead? We have cowards at the helm who's bark is a joke. Russia won't play the name game and will call their bluff.
I'm looking for some action that will cause ovarmit to remain status quo.

Ive read so many articles on this topic, I can't recall which one I read - but the article which discussed the US moving to plan B, and basically having a section of Syria to control and run the pipelines through, makes a lot of sense to me (well, not "regular" sense, but sense to the administration LOL) - but I don't think Russia will allow it - then the question becomes, how far is the US willing to push this plan?

WVBORN56 said...

That's what I keep thinking Scott regarding Putin. We seem so close which would imply he is Gog. So much fits except he seems like a smart guy. He certainly seems to be doing everything he can to avoid war with us. Some of this stuff is just to hard to know the real truth.

Scott said...

Yea, its one of the perplexing things...If you let your mind wander a little bit - you can see several scenarios - I hate to even say them...But if Putin is really upsetting the apple-cart re globalism, then you wonder what the globalists would do. Its hard to see him getting unseated in any way certainly not near term...But just like Turkey, it always goes in the direction of prophecy....And it IS interesting that we have both Iran and Russia (not to mention Turkey) - now in encampments just to the north of Israel...What a 'coincidence' huh?

Mrs.C said...

Yes, it could be someone else that is Gog, but Putin has the revenge temperament, and pure arrogance to fit the bill so as to speak. Gog, is a tittle, not an actual named person, and is an evil presence upon a person, like the anti-Christ with satan coming upon him, fully possessing him. That is why "Gog" shows up latter in Revelation, where as the "Gog" of Ezekiel 38/39 is killed...

ally said...

Well, if Putin is a Christian, he says he is, and the rapture happens, pouf, New leader, world confusion, who knows what leader may step to the plate in Russia.
I don't know. I like Putin, I like Bibi. The only two sane leaders left in the world. Ok, king of jordan is ok too.this isn't about personal approval lol, they are smart and respected statesmen.
We really are unbelievably close now, arent we?
Feel like it's almost our turn in the amusement park line for the biggest fastest rollercoaster ever. It goes straight up and doesn't come back down for 7 years! ;)
Am so itching to meet you guys and finally get to meet Jesus for real!!!!!!!! :)
I'm so exited thinking about it I probably cant sleep.

Reminds me of rocky movie

Putin is a former Colonel in the KGB. Former Defense Sec Gates described Putin as a "stone cold killer" He led the brutality in Crimea. Just in 2015, he gave the "services to the motherland" medal to a man accused of killing a dissident in London by poisoning. This also is the history of the Russian army, looting, raping,murder, just as God describes them in Ezekiel 38/39. They are rabid animals, evil in their hearts, when they "plunder"...

"Vladimir Putin yesterday honoured the man Scotland Yard believes poisoned dissident Alexander Litvinenko with polonium in London."

WW2 - This is why many German civilians killed themselves, than rather being taken by the Russians.
"THE Red Army's orgy of rape in the dying days of Nazi Germany was conducted on a much greater scale than previously suspected, according to a new book by the military historian Anthony Beevor.
Beevor, the author of the best-selling Stalingrad, says advancing Soviet troops raped large numbers of Russian and Polish women held in concentration camps, as well as millions of Germans.
The extent of the Red Army's indiscipline and depravity emerged as the author studied Soviet archives for his forthcoming book Berlin, to be published in April by Viking."

2008- The Georgia Invasion - under Putin. The Russian soldiers again, performed "ethnic cleansing", raped women, looted, burned down villages and many other atrocities!

2014 - Crimea - Again, under Putin - brutal torture, killings by Russian troops.

Hitler claimed to be a "Christian,(baptized Catholic) and the Nazi Party endorsed what they termed "Positive Christianity" which removed any Jewish roots in Scripture, and specific doctrines regarding the Divinity of Jesus.
Putin claims to be a "Christian", Russian Orthodox, which is very similar to Catholic. Yet, his history with the KGB, killings of anyone who is against him, murder, rape & looting by his troops under him, say differently. Is is Gog? With all that is happening in the Prophetic timeline so close to the Rapture, is very well could be. But again, Gog is a tittle, not a person, and by the time Ezekiel 38/39 quickly happens after Isaiah 17, we most likely will never know for sure...
