    Been following Elijah J Magnier for quite some time now. Lately he has been posting a lot of stuff on US interference and possible mass civil unrest in Lebanon. Their economy is done and their currency in the gutter. Incessant political crises with the US/Saudi/Israel coalition aiming for the removal of Aoun and a takeover through Hariri

    If Hezbollah gets tangled up at home it will leave Assad more vulnerable

    Not really relevant here.

    Why not start a Lebanon thread in International Politics?

    Lebanon is a financial hub for the Syrian economy. Makes sense that both currencies crashed at the same time

    US and its minions are maintaining a food blockade of Syria using "sanctions". What happened to "humanitarian law"?
    So it is moral and just to bomb civilians to save them, but also starving them for their own good. If you needed
    to see western "values" in action Syria is Exhibit A.

    But then there are all sorts of other examples such as the support for the Kiev's regime war of terror on the Donbass
    civilians and the same sort of barbarity by the Saudis in Yemen. Yemen has been invaded by Saudi Arabia and millions
    are starving but supposedly that is just fine.

    Invasions and humanitarian disasters are bad only when they do not serve US interests.

    And the US policy failed in Afghanistan and Iraq. As it will fail in Yemen and Syria. Because the American political culture is informed most immediately by a kind of primitive settler colonial racist imperialism. Interested in it's immediate expansion. Not nation building.

    Funny how the Yanks always knew the location of ISIS accountants. And had to take them out periodically. Since they probably ended up spending the money on themselves and not the war effort. A fail in ideology.

    This a very good observation. Settlers have a type of bunker mentality that is always about us vs. them. They are also insecure and need to endlessly
    assure themselves that they will survive and prosper. This culture has not gone away in the USA. It is still on with the manifest destiny nonsense and
    number one in everything retardation. It keeps on projecting enemy status on countries like Russia and China that have never done anything worthy of
    such hate.

    That includes the USSR. The fact that the USA thinks it can rule the world and can't stand any competition does not justify its hate for Russia. They
    always go on and on about being "threatened" when they are doing all the threatening.

    This is the nature of the Anglosaxons. They need a "THEM" to keep some sort of unity. For the Americans it were the Indians, then the British, Indians again, Blacks, North/South, Germans/Japanese and then the Russians, after them came ME countries, now the Russians again + Chinese, Iranians, Venezuelans, North-Koreans... In a few years some demented President will even declare the whole of Europe to an enemy if it keeps his power base alive and rallies the minions around the flag.

    The humanitarian situation in Syria is just terrible. China, Russia and Iran should have had an alternative payment system up and running 10-20 years ago. Then this wouldn't be happening. Russia has gone the furthest to develop alternatives. China not so much. Their alt payment system is more of a swift node than Russia's.

    Russia has a unique opportunity where they can use their own financial trade system to interconnect all the sanctioned countries banks, and even non sanctioned countries, together. Giving Russia a rather positive role in uniting the countries via trade, whom are not friendly to the US.

    It is also wasted potential since they aren't actually doing this.

    Very unlikely to happen unless they use gold. No one really believes in Ruble or Yuan stability over the time. Gold isn't easy to use and countries tend to keep it safe at home.

    The real question is how do you quantify Dollar amounts of barter trade (crude oil for goods) between 2 countries that don't use the Dollar, and don't rely on trends set up by speculative markets in the US/Uk? That aspect is largely speculative (figuratively and literally) at this point, a large unknown.

    What we do know is Iran needs Russia's medical supplies (such as Sputnik V) more than Russia needs Iranian crude oil, which only means Russia is getting a highly advantageous trade, probably better than speculators can quantify. Get it cheap and sell it expensive.

    The way to do it, is to work out real value of goods in standard units. Say calorific value by food equivilant. Exchange by Barter. Simple. Can not be sanctioned. No need for currency or Bank or Gold. Or bitcoin.

    A kg of meat has scientific value of kJ or kilo- calories. A section of pipe used in a building for heating, will reduce the amount of calories needed to survive. It has a food equivilant calorific value.

    The trade was quoted in dollars. It doesn't mean it was done in dollars.

    First off , if the balance of trade between the 2 countries is even , then no dollars are actually used. Say Russia exports a million cubic feet of nat gas to Germany and Germany exports the equivalent value of BMW's to Russia , its an even trade. Quoted in dollars , no dollars used.

    Second , the USD gets its value from countries holding dollars. Not really transacting in them. And on that front , the biggest offenders are China ,Japan ,the Gulf oil states , Brazil , S.Korea.

    China is basically the outlier. Everyone else is basically occupied by the US military. Would be nice to know what China's plan is. Because it doesn't make sense what it's doing

    I don't think that is the full picture. The volume of US dollars outside US borders being used for financial transactions is much greater
    than all the US "dollars" (treasury bills) being held by the central banks of countries around the world. This is why the US is panicked
    over the prospect of countries stopping use of dollars and instead using other currencies for trade.

    So if China dumped its stash of treasury bills, that would not do much damage to the US. It is the loss of confidence in the dollar
    for trade that would be the end of the road for American hegemony.

    https://www.swift.com/node/19186

    These percentages apply to tens of trillions of dollars equivalent of international trade. The often quoted $500 billion in US cash outside
    the US is irrelevant.

    China hasn't helped in places like Syria because they wanted to stay in the US's good books. Now that is blown anyway. But they don't seem to be changing.

    When Libya happened , China evacuated 60,000 people and watched NATO bomb their investments into the ground.

    China is a mouse at the UN. Abstaining when Russia could use their vote. They just don't have the geopolitical experience that Russia has. But they could at least start.

    When Venezuela was going down to the wire , who sent aircraft with special forces to help ? Russia. Even though China has far more to lose there.

    Now China just inked a big 25 year infrastructure/trade deal with Iran. If I was China , I'd help Russia with Syria and Venezuela just to gain the experience. But I won't hold my breath.

    China: "If it ain't broke don't fix it." Their whole philosophy to power is different. Playing snake on the grass only works for so long tho...

    Their approach will change whenever the empire manages to outmaneuver them in some significant way and make a dent on their economic growth figures. Only then will they start to rethink their "hands off" approach in order to protect its interests. Until that happens China elites live in their own little bubble in that regard. They've yet to get punched. All depends on what the U.S and allies manage to concoct in the future... although the golden generation of U.S imperialists has died off so their scheming potential isn't as strong as before - creativity if you will - despite sophistication in tools and passed down knowledge.

    Really good news. It looks like the Syrian military, as well as the civilians, is about to have its petrol and diesel stocks replenished.

    In addition to the claimed 1Mbarrel tanker about to dock and the small convoy following it, this is happening in the east. It seems that the RuAF has made its point very clear and that Syrian oil products should not be going to Turkey/Idlib but to the Government. Or else the road tankers, a big source of local income, will be destroyed, again.

    Between the Self-Administration and the Syrian government sources revealed a new agreement that took place recently between the Autonomous Administration and the Syrian government, to reopen the crossings between the areas controlled by the two parties in northeastern Syria, which were closed by government forces at the end of last March.

    According to the Syria TV website, the agreement stipulates the opening of the crossings in exchange for providing the government with oil on a weekly basis, at a rate of 200 trucks, in addition to paying transit fees by commercial vehicles, amounting to 30% of the value of goods and 5000 Sy pds. For every person who enters from the government forces' areas to the Autonomous Administration areas.

    The source indicated that 200 oil trucks crossed within 48 hours to government-controlled areas through the Tabqa crossing, west of Raqqa, coming from the Rumailan wells towards the Homs refinery.

    Would be nice to know what China's plan is. Because it doesn't make sense what it's doing

    They have made a lot of money and rapidly developed in the current situation, but the US is changing things to try to suppress development in China and in Russia, so both will likely look towards BRICS or something like that to create a situation where they can grow and develop without the US.

    China has invested enormous amounts of money and time and effort to create land and sea and air trade routes from Asia to Europe, so a falling out with the US could be inevidable but I don't see them breaking up with the EU.

    There is a lot of money and resources in Asia and a lot of money and resources in Europe and China wants that trade to be cheap and easy so both areas can grow and develop... of course the US is going to try to stop it because they do not benefit from such trade at all.

    I see China as being much like Russia... they have their own interests but really are showing no interest in trying to rule the planet and take over from the US... for most of the last few decades they have been trying to become partners of the west rather than enemies or rivals, but the west is not looking for equals or partners... they want subjects... especially mineral and energy rich subjects they can teach about democracy and civilisation, while asset stripping and robbing them blind.

    So if China dumped its stash of treasury bills, that would not do much damage to the US. It is the loss of confidence in the dollar
    for trade that would be the end of the road for American hegemony.

    The real irony is that some seem to think that the US dollar might plummet in value... it is actually more likely that countries will stop accepting US dollars all together, which will really be a problem because those that own US debt will demand to be paid in Gold or some other currency... say euros... what if the EU stops accepting dollars... or worse for the EU... what if they don't... they end up with all these useless US dollars that no one else in the world will accept... even American companies that will demand payment in Euros so they can import things from countries that don't accept US dollars...

    Now China just inked a big 25 year infrastructure/trade deal with Iran. If I was China , I'd help Russia with Syria and Venezuela just to gain the experience. But I won't hold my breath.

    It is not a game they are used to playing.... I think to their credit honestly.

    I also think China should send military personnel to Syria and also military equipment that they can test in real combat.

    I think it would be valuable for Chinese military personnel to go to a real modern war as opposed to an exercise. There is risk, but the greater risk is to not test your forces and leave it... if the next war they fight is over Taiwan there will be lots of very very serious lessons they will need to learn and maybe to their cost... most European nations at the start of WWII were arrogant and thought they were vastly more capable than they turned out to be... except Germany of course...

    WWI was so bloody because colonial powers were used to getting the local chief and showing him a machine gun cutting down a tree, or something destroyed with an artillery piece... they would then surrender and hand over anything they wanted.

    When the enemy has the same machine guns and artillery you have and is just as arrogant then millions of men die for no good reason... so devastating and ground changing that they did it all again a few decades later but added tanks and planes to the game.

    China: "If it ain't broke don't fix it." Their whole philosophy to power is different. Playing snake on the grass only works for so long tho...

    To be fair up until recently they were not the target of the west so it didn't matter to them what games the west played with Russia.

    They knew they would be next but no point in killing the golden goose till there are no more golden eggs...

    Actually is the other way . China have developed alternatives many years ago ,not only
    to the western financial system ,but also to anglojewish system business too . they are doing pretty dam well ,in so little time ,they catch and at times surpassed many of the western business , from
    smart phones to next gen wireless communications like 5G , to electric cars and they have alternatives in place to amazon and ebay . alternatives even to american google and youtube. with tik tok and others. this is a far cry ,to what putin the outdated president is  doing. all that midget care is about
    gas stations and nothing else ,in terms of business.  The pandemic turned to force Russia/open the their eyes to develop its pharma industry , and for the only reason sputnik is not dominating in sales
    world wide , is because decades of abandon of their pharma industry.   Russia is now investing in manufacturing plants , but why do that now ? and not 20 years before?  a nation like Russia ,that its own president complains on russian media , US and major allies finance and arm terrorism and at same time developing bioweapons labs ,right on russian borders ,as it is georgia biological weapons program ,right on russia borders , should have been alarming ,and a signal ,that russia cannot not only discard a nuclear war with US possible ,but also a biological war too ,and so the midget president had to be prepared for the worst kind of outcome ,and building better nukes is not enough ,but how to counter potential biological wars , should have been a major scenario they should have consider possible and have a mass scale nation wide vaccination program decades ago in case they attacked with bioweapons.   china did their job , they manufacturing millions vaccines per month ,
    while russia not even 5% of that.  Russia give vaccines to venezuela at water drop , each month 10 thousands.. while china give millions of vaccines by the time Russia produce a hundred of thousands.
    So behind is Russia in manufacturing ,that now is asking help china to manufacture sputnik v , for their planets away superior manufacturing capabilities.

    so instead of putin wasting hundred of billions $$ US dollars in epennis contest , as sochi and world cup was ,that according to putin  ,to "promote good relations " with the west , something that failed miserably , they should have invested that money in real development of Russia , in more important business ,either for national security ,as pharma industry is , or in full spectrum domination and lead the world in space ,for military and commercial purposes.  

    But all this short sight development of Russia by putin ,what i call artificial cosmetical development ,
    in totally irrelevant things , like luxury parks , or olympics medals , this have allowed the west ,to expand their influence and domination with their modern business.  and make it more easier for russia enemies ,to more easily sanction russia . if putin develop the country ,like a banana republic ,gas station economy , this is music to the ears of the west , because allows them to relax ,and have nothing to worry about their system being challenged.  the story is completely different with China.
    they are the only nation in the world challenging the anglo western empires unilateral system.

    Putin is totally hopeless ,with his idiotic foreign policy of russia , by being bodyguards of the poor and rejected nations from the western world. Syria will not be at war today , if putin keep his noses away of it , and warned them ,that after iraq invasion of NATO ,they will be next ,and that russia will have no way to help them properly in middle east , while fighting millions of terrorist there ,in combination with NATO major powers and israel support.

    So don't complain about china not aiding syria , this is all Russia fault ,for behaving as if it was a super power ,that could defend all nations in the world. People talk about syria , and in economic terms , venezuela is far worse , they don't have gasoline or diesel , and Russia is totally ignoring them. as it is not their problem but it is .  Putin need to stop encouraging nations ,from ever doing any kind of business with them ,if they are not ready to properly come in their defense after syria,venezuela or others attacked by NATO or israel.  And at same time ,stand with those nations ,
    fully ,they have chosen to create an alliance with them. but putin do neither one , he continues encouraging country to resist the western pressure and when attacked ,putin leave them alone on their own.  had iran and iraq did not helped russia ,in helping syria not collapse, they will have been over run in 2014 by isis ,that Anglozionist powers have been aiding. because iran and iraq bring a ton of soldiers to help syria fight back. and russia airforce in combination with the land forces could help push back the terrorist form most zones.  but the danger is far from over , Syria is experiencing a miserable life ,under eternal war by russia enemies , that target syria as punishment to russia .
    And Russia is completely incapable to help them properly , to end the war or restore their nation
    economy.  

    Moral of the story is , Russia needs to stay out of the world and stay only withing their borders , because any invitation to become an ally of russia is a death sentence for that nation. and this is why venezuela and syria are paying the price , and soviet union also did this mistakes ,and encouraged cuba to ally with them , reason why they now facing more than 50 years of economic blockade.
    Only nations that russia can build relations ,are those that can't defend themselves on their own if attacked by the west. only china and india could do that ,from the nations not aligned with the the anglo west  yet.

    however ,now that they made a big mistake and encourage the destruction of syria ,by inviting them to do business with russia ,they either need to fight back and help syria or encourage them to surrender to US and abandon their relations with russia , and any other nation ,considered enemies by the west.  even japan that was nuked , was able to restore relations with US. they have a neutral policy and can do business with anyone more or less. and become fully independent at any moment it wants to do it ,if want to fight like Russia and china the west.  Russia foreign policy is close to disastrous , a totally retarded one ,totally passive policy of just taking hits and not fighting enemies back and their enemies take advantage of this weakness of putin on his foreign policy. someone should explain putin ,that being nice and polite doesn't works with those who wants blood and his head chopped out of his body after russia destroyed. That only force and power will be respected.
    russia already have military power ,that can counter the west ,but no business power yet ,to counter their system.

    Something that people need to never forget , is that there is no place for Russia , in the anglo jewish world system. To follow the american world ,the american banks , the american internet , the american high tech industry ,the american international rules and later expect that Russia will be
    treated fairly is insanity. pure idiocy. Russia needs to create its own business world , a strong alternative to the strong modern western business world , and it don't need to do it alone , it can recruit china and india ,and brazil too, to counter the western business world ,coordinate their efforts
    so that Russia ,china and india and brazil can work as a team to fight the west ,instead of becoming competition with each other business between them.. business high tech and space alliance between
    BRICS nations ,is the way to go , and the right people need to lead this revolution , you need a real leader ,with real ambitions and confidence ,to do such gigantic project. Putin don't have the leadership required to transform Russia into a modern economy that can challenge western world and its major control over the developed world.
