Zero Hedge: Chinese Military Personnel, "Aerial Assets" Allegedly En Route To Syria

On Wednesday evening, we suggested that Vladimir Putin’s explicit promise to go ahead with airstrikes against terrorist targets in Syria with or without the help of the US effectively marks the end of Washington’s years-old effort to destabilize and ultimately remove the Assad regime.

The Kremlin's pronouncement came just a day after the mainstream media began reporting that Moscow and Tehran are coordinating their efforts on the ground (something which should come as no surprise to anyone) meaning any Sunni extremists and/or CIA-trained “freedom fighters” intent on seizing control of the country will now need to go through Russia and Iran, with the latter now seemingly willing to make the badly kept secret of its military support for Assad no secret at all.

Update: Lebanese Radio: Chinese Military May Get Involved in Syria Alongside Russia, Iran -- Breaking Israeli News

WNU Editor: My Chinese contacts are telling me that Beijing is just mulling this deployment .... not committing to it. But if China is to get involved, it will be to target Chinese Uyghur terror groups in Syria. The following Times of Israel post has its own take on the China - Syria connection, and why would China get involved .... If Assad asks, China can deploy troops to Syria (Times of Israel).

As to what would happen if China becomes directly involved in the Syrian conflict .... I would then say that this literally changes everything .... not only in the Middle East, but on a geopolitical level everyone will take notice. A Russia - China - Iran military alliance that is involved in a conflict in the Middle East is something that no one has calculated or even contemplated in Washington, Europe, or anywhere else.

Not to sound uppity,but I've been expecting this for quite some time. Ever since Libya where Chinese and Russian interests were deliberately and haughtily trampled, it should come as no surprise that they would come together in this fashion.

Brazilian journalist, for one, Pepe Escobar has been discussing the Russia/China/Iran Axis for some time.

With many US states, districts, municipalities and corporations on the brink of bankruptcy, wholesale division in American society, a $46 trillion dollar and daily growing national debt that will NEVER be paid back, mass unemployment, inept leadership from all political elites, debauched, decrepit allies/clients, etc etc. The Shanghai group (lets call them what they are) smell blood in the water.

I know Canada does not have the pull to reverse this but I cannot help but be completely disgusted with the government of my country (not just the proto fascist Conservatives either) for how it has slavishly pandered to a bankrupt (literally) agenda spawned in Washington and Wall Street.

We're going to not only be neutered and embarrassed on the world scene but, in all likelihood shutout or sucking hind teet of the fast approaching new Asian world order.
The more I think about it, the more I get chills up and down my spine. Things they are a changin'. Fast.

And the offensive begins

Jesus told the Prophet Joel "I will gather all nations and I will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat...let the heathen be wakened and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: For there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about. Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision. The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining (Joel 3:2,12,14,15).

I don't often quote the bible but it seems appropriate right about now.

Ropestuff .... Quoting the bible is probably very appropriate right now.

I much prefer both russian, chinese and persian leadership on the world arena than the spineless one merkel and obama are providing today.

Soon, if not now the important question will be; Who is NOT in Syria (besides Syrians of course)?
