Washington’s failure to share data with Russian intelligence about terrorist positions in Syria makes one question the goals that Americans have in their anti-ISIS campaign in Syria and Iraq, a senior Russian diplomat has said.

The refusal to share intelligence on terrorists “just confirms once more what we knew from the very start, that the US goals in Syria have little to do with creating the conditions for a political process and national reconciliation,” Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said Thursday.

“I would risk saying that by doing this the US and the countries that joined the US-led coalition are putting themselves in a politically dubious position. The question is: which side are you fighting for in this war?”

Earlier, the Russian military said they would welcome American intelligence on the forces of terrorist group Islamic State (formerly ISIS/ISIL) to help with Russia’s bombing operation in Syria. But the US State Department said it would not be possible because Russia and the US do not share the same goals in Syria.

“I don’t know how you can share intelligence when you don’t share a basic, common objective inside Syria. We’re not at that – we’re nowhere near that point. There’s no shared, common objective here about going after ISIL,” said John Kirby, a State Department spokesman.

The US has accused Russia of failing to target ISIS and instead bombing moderate rebel forces, which Washington wants to replace the government of President Bashar Assad. Russia denies the allegations.

Ryabkov said that without US intelligence Russia would remain quite effective in the Syrian operation, considering that it has plenty of other sources.

“There are our own means of reconnaissance. We get intelligence from a number of other countries and coordinate its flow through the Baghdad information-sharing center,” the Russian diplomat said, referring to a facility in the Iraqi capital that is used by Syria, Iraq, Iran and Russia to coordinate their efforts in fighting ISIS.

The US-led coalition has been bombing ISIS targets for over a year and provided supplies and assistance to forces such as Iraqi and Kurdish militias, which are fighting the terrorists on the ground. But it has refused to deal with either Damascus or its key regional ally Tehran, saying that the downfall of the government of President Assad is part of the solution to the crisis. Despite the coalition’s efforts, ISIS has enlarged the territory under its control over the last year.

Senior Syrian and Iranian officials questioned America’s determination to defeat ISIS, saying that the coalition airstrikes are more of a show and are not intended to actually harm the terrorists. Instead Washington is trying to get ISIS topple the Assad government, hoping to deal with them later.

Russia voiced similar concerns on Wednesday, after reporting that its week-long effort had done serious harm to the jihadists in Syria.

“The US Air Force and other parties has been conduction airstrikes for a year. We have reasons to believe that they don’t often hit terrorist targets, or rather do so very rarely,” said Igor Konashenkov, the spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry.

Meanwhile Russia’s effort seems to have paid off, as on Tuesday the Syrian Army announced a major offensive against various terrorist groups. Commenting on what role Russia’s support played in turning the tables on the jihadists, Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad said that Russia “has produced significant results in several days that greatly surpass those achieved by the [US-led anti-ISIS] coalition in over a year.”

    Believe that and you’ll believe anything. Reuters is House of Rothschild and the captioned image could have come from anywhere at any time. It could even be a back garden firework display snap-shot photoshopped if you try thinking hard enough.

    1891: The British Labour Leader makes the following statement on the subject of the Rothschilds,

    “This blood-sucking crew has been the cause of untold mischief and misery in Europe during the present century, and has piled up its prodigious wealth chiefly through fomenting wars between States which ought never to have quarrelled.
    Whenever there is trouble in Europe, wherever rumours of war circulate and men’s minds are distraught with fear of change and calamity you may be sure that a hook-nosed Rothschild is at his games somewhere near the region of the disturbance.”

    Comments like this worry the Rothschilds and towards the end of the 1800’s they purchase Reuters news agency so they can have some control of the media.

    PS
    1849: Gutle Schnaper, Mayer Amschel Rothschild’s wife dies. Before her death she would nonchalantly state,

    “If my sons did not want wars, there would be none.”

    That’s it then. Arrest the Rothschilds and Peace on Earth is restored. I’m not sure what to do with the Industrial/Military Complex left over. Big problem. Any suggestions? My favourite is to nuke them all and save ourselves. It’s the only way.

      Of that I have no doubt. Have you ever noticed how the information of some alternative media sources is “all over the place”? They offer information that is contradictory and seems to point in every direction, and this creates great confusion in the minds of their followers. In my experience, there are two kinds of people who do this: people who are very confused in their own thinking, and people who are running mind control on their followers. Let me tell you about the latter type…

      If you wanted to move people in a certain direction, how would you do it? There are actually many ways, but this is one:

      1) You point them in every direction so they become confused and can’t tell which way is north anymore.

      2) As you do so, you point them in the direction you want them to go more often than you point them in the other directions.

      3) The net result is that people move in the direction you want in a zombie-like state. They are so overwhelmed by conflicting messages that they stop trying to think for themselves and just go with the flow (right into the NWO).

      > “Alfred has pointed to one of your articles before on his Facebook page.”

      I’ve observed a number of known disinformation sources pointing to my articles before (usually because their followers doggedly pursued them about it), and they typically do one of two things:

      1) They feign interest or agreement, but then offer their own subtle commentary to try to tie in what I’m saying to what they’ve been saying, thus moving their followers back onto the narrative they’re selling. Some trolls on the comment boards also use this technique; I call them “sidle-up shills.”

      2) They feign interest or agreement, but then go right back to selling their narrative as though nothing had happened. ”
