Why the West Will Not and Cannot Let Syria Live in Peace

by Marcus Godwyn, Moscow, 27-06-2017

For all those who have become awake and conscious or have escaped the Western media pit of lies and brainwashing, the six-year-long resistance of the Syrian people in the face of the Anglo-Zionist empire and its terrorist proxy troops ISIS, Al Qaeda et al has been a deeply tragic but historically heroic inspiration.  They survived four years almost totally alone until Russia entered to fight the US, EU, and Israeli proxy terrorist fighters that were gaining ground on government held territory in Syria. The Russian campaign has been exemplary, resulting in at the time of writing in a total reversal for the Anglo-Zionists. Many are rightly praising the Heroic Syrian Arab army and its Russian, Iranian and Hezbollah allies.

I have been saying all along, however, that this optimism is misplaced as the forces that actually run the Western world simply cannot let Syria rise from the ashes.  A re-built Syria which controls its own central bank and can issue its own currency as it needs, with no outside control and no debt to the International Monetary Fund or anyone else, (the most fundamental and essential of freedoms that most western countries have not experienced for at least a hundred years) and which, because of this, is able to offer its citizens, even during the war, free education and higher education, health care and extremely low or non-existent utility charges is totally anathema to the real leaders of the Western world. The fact that different branches of Islam and, above all, the fact that the many Orthodox Christians in Syria live in peace with each other burns the Western, fractional reserve, debt enslaving banking elites as holy water burns a vampire.

The neo-cons, i.e. the people who actually run the Anglo-Zionist empire, are hell bent on total world domination and they are achieving this through control of every country’s central bank, the freedom sovereign states have to issue their own currency as they need, and through a ruthless war on culture, facilitated by the ever increasing rate at which education is dumbed down with the help of mainstream media.  In just thirty years, they have succeeded in turning the average Westerner into a zombie whose understanding of the world is completely founded on lies and often total reality-inversions and whose powers of thought and objective reasoning, as well as a sense of any meaningful self and a place in history, have been reduced to almost zero.

A resurgent Syria will be a shining example to the whole world of what life can be like without the neo-con iron grip on the money supply, education system, media, sports, art and all the rest. A resurgent, whole Syria will be a block to the much touted “Greater Israel” and to the western plans for gas pipes from Qatar to Europe (whatever may or may not be happening with Qatar right now).  Last but definitely not the least is the fact that Syria’s survival will be a massive spanner in the works of their ultimate goal of subduing, conquering and dismembering Russia, which is of course the number one reason why Russia came to Syria’s aid in the first place!  That is why they will not and from their point of view, cannot, allow it allow Syria to survive!

At the time of writing (7 pm Moscow time) seemingly coordinated reports are coming in from the US, UK, France that another chemical attack on the Syrian people and “innocent little children” by its own government and its president is being prepared and is due any minute; and that the West will make President Assad and his military “pay a very heavy price” “when or maybe even before it occurs” (in a preemptive strike, then).

Now all sane and informed people in the world know that the government of Syria has never used chemical weapons on anybody and never will.  We know that this was only ever Western lies to help domestic public opinion accept yet another Western destruction of free humanity and culture as it did with Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya and now Syria, thus bringing them them ever closer to their goal of absolute domination of the entire world.  What we are seeing here is yet another attempt to use the same tired old lie to justify a Western regime change action followed by the destruction of a secular, civilised Syria.

Were a major Western, Israeli attack on Syria to take place, it would put Russia in an agonisingly difficult position, which is precisely why some of the hotter heads in the Western elite may just decide to risk it.

The Russian government and people absolutely do not want war and Russia has repeatedly shown a very “Zen” ability to dissolve all the aggressive provocations the West has thus far thrown at her in Ukraine as in Syria.  One does not have to be a military or geopolitical expert to see that if Russia resists militarily, this could risk escalating very fast all the way to World War III. This is something that Russia wants to avoid at nearly all cost.  Were the situation to become an existential threat to it, that would be another matter, and as many have already commentated, the Russians are informed and ready, which cannot be said in any way of Western populations.

The Russian campaign in Syria has resulted in a very low casualty count so far but a very high profile one.  All deaths of male and female Russian service personnel in Syria (except secret agents, we may presume) have been publicized on mainstream media. All are felt as a great loss, but some were especially moving.  The young reconnaissance soldier who, finding himself hopelessly surrounded by ISIS fighters, called down a missile strike on himself to avoid being captured and to make sure the terrorists were all killed, is one such case. The pilot who was shot down by a Turkish fighter and then machine gunned by Western-backed terrorists as he parachuted to earth hanging helplessly in the air was another. All of Russia saw his legs kicking out as the bullets entered him. It would be very hard, maybe even impossible, for Russian public opinion to accept that all that heroism and sacrifice was for nothing and  that Russia must just let the West and Israel overthrow the legitimate government, hand the country over to the Islamist terrorists and their masters, and return home with her tail between her legs to start to re-enforce the Russian borders.

The Russian government has always said that it is in Syria to defeat the terrorists rather than to “prop up” — as the Western media likes to say– the Assad government.  Recent polls say that if there was an election in Syria tomorrow, Assad would get close to ninety percent, and the fact on the ground is that if he goes, the terrorists will win.  A fact that is perfectly understood in Washington, London, Paris, Tel Aviv as it is in Damascus, Moscow, Tehran and Beijing. If that happens, next step, Iran!

If the West goes for an all-out regime-change attack in Syria and should Russia decide that its long term interests are best served by retreating, that could be more destabilizing for Russia’s internal unity than anything the West has thrown at her so far.  The West’s use of so called “liberals” and “Clinton, Soros worshiping and funded dissidents” to effect regime change in Russia has spectacularly failed.  However, if there is any undercurrent of doubt in the leadership of Vladimir Putin in the country, it is among those who feel frustrated by his “Zen” way of dealing with the West and who would like to see a much more full-on, robust countering of Western aggression around her borders and protection of Russia’s interests worldwide.  These people would find it impossible to stomach a Russian retreat from Syria and internal tensions would certainly rise more than they have done to date.  I would certainly not envy President Putin, his ministers and advisers given such a choice.  True, a firm, decisive rebuttal of Western aggression might cause the West to back down as it is in much more disarray than Russia, or Syria itself for that matter. On the other hand, it might not and then what?

Let us pray that such a decision will not have to be taken.  That the few remaining non neo-con people in the Pentagon and the US administration manage to thwart this ridiculous false flag creation, or that,as Alexander Mercouris has noted, that it looks like a heavy-handed attempt to distract public attention from Seymour Hersh’s devastating article exposing the last chemical attack false flag as a total lie!

The next few hours and days will be crucial! Mikhail Orlov recently wrote, and I’m paraphrasing him as I can’t find the original:

“The neo-con desire for world domination has zombified them to such an extent that they cannot stop on this path.  Until someone shoots them in the head, they will continue moving forward!”


  1. So let’s form a worldwide collective and shoot these fuickers in the head. I couldn’t kill an animal but give me a gun and I would gladly point it at McCain’s head or Soros’s head, pull the trigger and go buy pizzas and beer to celebrate afterwards. These assholes don’t deserve to breath my oxygen.

    Because 6-year-old Syrian bloodshed has been an Israeli Project from the day one. It’s meant to install an anti-Iran regime in Damascus. Iran supports both Hamas and Hizbullah resistance group at war with the Zionist regime occupying Arab Palestine.

    In 2001, Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu made an offer to Syrian president Bashar al-Assad through US ambassador in Damascus that Israel will return Syrian Golan Heights, which it captured in 1967 war – if Assad distance himself from Tehran. Assad rejected the offer.

    On June 18, 2017, the Wall Street Journal, owned by Israel-First Australian multi-billionaire Rupert Murdock, reported that Israel funds ISIS in Syria. Recently, Netanyahu admitted that Israeli doctors in Jewish-occupied Syrian Golan Heights were treating anti-Assad wounded rebels on humanitarian basis. This is same bloodthirsty creep who defend Israeli soldiers killing Palestinian minors.

    On June 28, Sharmine Narwani penned an article, entitled, “Dispatch From the Middle East: US Build-up All About Iran”, for The American Conservative, news website.

    On June 16, 2017, Julien Barnes-Dacey, senior Middle East expert at the European Council on Foreign Relations, a Zionist think tank, warned Washington that “US-supported push into eastern Syria will almost certainly end in failure given the regime’s and Iran’s commitment to secure the area.”

    Trump — he screams “fake news! fake news!” but then he bases his decisions on FAKE MSM NEWS.
    Take Syria and the discredited gas attacks ….
    It is the FAKE news claiming the Syrian government made an attack — everyone else said bull shit. Trump wasted $140+MILLION blowing up DIRT.
    It is ILLEGAL for us to be inside Syria’s borders in any way shape or form.
    While the White House claims that Damascus is preparing for a “new chemical attack,” referring to the Idlib incident of April 4, American investigative journalist Seymour M. Hersh insists that the US military on the ground in Syria were aware that the alleged gas strike never took place. http://www.alternet.org/grayzone-project/seymour-hersh-syria-bombshell?akid=15804.74906.YQxlji&rd=1&src=newsletter1079015&t=4
    NONE of those “Syrian Gas attacks” actually took place. They have been disproven.

  4. Poor Jewish Slave says

    Incredible. This is kind of stand-up, or Russians are paying/blackmailing the autor ? 🙂 So many crazy people in one place.

    “Anglo-Zionist empire ” ????

    “Western destruction of free humanity and culture as it did with Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya and now Syria” you forgot to mention free humanity in NC. True fact – so many enslaved westerners fleed to those beautiful countries in the past.

    I have to come in more often. Good entertainment

  5. Sav says

    The complicit mainstream media are also heavily invested in this. The Syrian government surviving would be a major embarrassment to their narrative of the evil Assad that Syrians want to remove.

    This latest false flag flag set up is so preposterous I don’t think you could make it smell of any more bullshit. Yet dutifully reported without any cynicism. BBC’s Johnathan Marcus writes:

    ‘The very public warning to the Syrian government against using chemical weapons is highly unusual. Such a step , which must surely be based upon detailed intelligence’

    • It’s because there’s no money in a peaceful world for the insatiably greedy corporations which control our corrupt Western governments, aided and abetted by Establishment propaganda-wing BBC, etc

  6. BigB says

    [Dear OffG: I can only seem to post short comments. What’s the best email to send a longer comment for you to post for me? Many thanks.]

    • It’s a complete disaster. I only hope that we don’t have to wait years before this site (not the content) is history.

      Short comments are a Good Thing …

  7. Seamus Padraig says

    I’m confused. Is this June 2017? Or June 1941? I feel a Barbarossa coming on.

    • BigB says

      Or this day in history: June 28th 1914… the day they shot Franz Ferdinand…

  8. Greg Bacon says

    The nature of US foreign policy? Basically, it’s might is right. The rule of the jungle and if you don’t cozy up and kiss our nether regions, then you will be painted as some kind of crazed leader ruling over a fanatical people that only desire to kill Americans that just has to be destroyed before they take over all our fast food restaurants.

    The actuality is that the US military is nothing more than trained gangsters, protecting our ‘SOB’s’ overseas, like we did to Saddam, until we wanted his gold and Israel wanted him dead.
    Ditto for Libya, we had decent relations with Qaddafi, until the broke FED wanted Libya’s gold and Israel wanted him dead.

    Now we’re bringing ‘democracy’ to Syria, one bomb, one bullet and one death at a time, turning that beautiful nation into a Rothschild slaughterhouse, with over 500,000 dead, millions displaced, much of the country a bombed out wreck–like Gaza–and the central bankers and Israel salivating over the coming feast, but Russia isn’t playing along, so if someone in the Pentagon or WH is stupid enough to think a pre-emptive nuke strike would take out Russia and we’ll survive because we ‘ducked and covered’ underneath our 55″ HDTV, then humanity will join the dinosaurs and Mother Nature will be give thousands of years to heal and try again.

    • Roger says

      Sometimes I feel it might be best if Mother Nature were given a chance to recover in the way you mention…………..

    Russia is in Syria out of its own national security interest. It is fully aware that the terrorists, once done with Syria, would be unleashed on RUsssian Federation territory. Such an onslaught would make Beslan and the rest look like a picnic. It is there also to preserve the notion of national self-determination and the right of people to determine their own fate. Should it retreat, then the same techniques will be applied to Russia to dismember it.

  10. Ike says

    Excellent article. Lays it out as clear as day.

  11. Frank says

    The neo-con cabal in Washington control US foreign policy, the media, both houses of Congress and the deep state. They are set on world domination and no appeal to reason will stop their demented project. The message being sent to Russia, (and for that matter China and Iran) is: choose between abject surrender or war. Whether that is serious or bluff is a matter of conjecture. It would be difficult to contain a war without it turning nuclear, and a nuclear war would have no winners. But appeasing the beast will only feed his ambitions. The Cuban scenario approaches, and it cannot be dodged.

    When Neville Chamberlain came back from his meeting with Hitler with the famous piece of worthless paper (the agreement) Winston Churchill described the whole farce of appeasement in the following terms.

    ”You were given the choice between war and dishonour, you have chosen dishonour and you will get war.”

  12. A very timely article with far reaching implications.

    We are clearly at a crossroads, with the decline of the uni-polar world of the last 25 years and the emergence of the multi-polar world view. This emergence of a multi-polar view of economics is not surprisingly born out of the Neo-liberal ideas of globalisation orthodoxy. This orthodoxy was built on the sourcing of jobs from the West, accompanied by fiscal and intellectual copyright control and domination of receiving countries.

    Ironically though, the true Neo-Liberal agenda was not economic liberation, but economic liberalism which required hegemonic domination, not the true globalisation which was being sold. All this has been backed up by the Anglo-Zionists through their US/NATO led wars, colour revolutions and territorial expansion. All this supported the progress of a new form of capitalist colonialism, what Michael Hudson has called, “Economic Warfare”. This new economic expansion required a growing educated workforce in the various countries, where capitalists brought their so called bright vision of the future. Which in turn has led to the growth of the emerging multi-polar economy. China’s BRI is the perfect example of this.

    The crossroads we are at is simply put and was described by Marx, the dialectic. Capitalism’s intrinsic contradiction because of its inability to continue to expand, which leads to a tipping or breaking point and through economic revolution a new order emerging.

    What form that will take is not clear. Will it be achieved without war? We can only hope so. But history tells us that capitalist revolutions are far more bloody and prolonged than socialist ones. We also know that we now possess the means for total annihilation. Unfortunately, the intellects and motives, of many leaders of the world, do not match the sophistication of their weaponry…

    It’s June 28 and as it looks we’re finally arriving where we would have been on January 21 if Hillary had won the election. Devastating. The faint hope that some non-neocons in the Pentagon and the US administration (do they even exist?) manage to put a spoke in the execution of such a nefarious plan or the even fainter hope that one of the shitheads in charge of the UK, France, Germany, Italy or Canada sees the light and threatens to pull out of Nato (which would be totally unacceptable for the US) is all we’ve got at this moment. I am not a Putin fan but I do appreciate his calm, sane, sober and rational approach when dealing with the obscene kindergarten that is the elected leadership of what we laughingly call “The West”. If in the coming days and weeks there should be a gas attack in Syria, I do hope that Russian diplomacy will manage to defuse the situation without compromising on Russia’s commitment to fight terrorism in Syria. Pulling out of Syria should in my opinion be no option for the Russian government as this would very likely mean the beginning of the end for Syria, Iran, Russia, the PRC and our planet as a whole. I’d rather see Russia and whoever else joins her (Iran, PRC, maybe even Turkey) threaten to pull out all the stops than pulling out of Syria. The cabal of neocons, bankers and business people that’s holding the planet’s human population to ransom must be shown its limits.

    • I do think Putin has shown himself to be a great statesman when you draw any comparison to the shower of cronies the so called Western Democracies have had to suffer.

      • BigB says

        Putin and Lavrov are the only two adults at the international table. Only in America could they find a replacement for Sam Power who is actually worse. As for Fallon, Rycroft, Bojo et al (not sure Treason May wields much influence any more) – it makes me physically sick to think that they represent “me” in any way. What the “West” stands for is anti-life, anti-humanity, terrorism, and ecocide. What a winning philosophy!

  14. John says

    I am amazed that there is not a lot more “shooting in the head”.
    There were at least two attempted assassinations against Lenin
    How many times have people discussed how things might have been different if Hitler had been assassinated?
    As it was, he managed to survive six attempts on his life.
    Today, nothing like this seems to take place.
    Though Johnny Depp caused a stir with his recent remarks about Trump at Glastonbury.

    • As far as I can tell, the western policy of “targeted killings” really should be put into practice – against them!

  15. It has become nearly impossible to accurately describe these warmongers as anything other than evil.

    • Enough is enough says

      Precisely. The greatest mass bombing/killing terrorists on earth. To think i once naively believed that we in the west were ‘the good guys’ …. Oh the lost comfort, on having to wake from a dream state, never to lay comfortably again on that illusory lie stuffed bed.

      • Many of us have awakened to the truth of the sentiments you expressed with “death’s peaceful rest” ringing truer than any living slumbers.

  16. Dead World Walking says

    We have two choices:
    Anarchy (rules WITHOUT rulers).
    Armageddon (Earth without us).
