Report: Obama Fled In Terror Over Putin Armageddon ThreatTopics: Middle East News and Perspectives, Political News and commentaries, Syria
Apparently no major publication bothered to pick this story up.
Via the EU Times back on 9/11/13:
A very frightening report prepared by the Office of the President (OoP) on the machinations behind the United States rapid retreat from using military action against Syria states that President Obama was "strongly dissuaded" from attacking this Middle Eastern nation after President Putin threatened that should America strike, "Armageddon would be unleashed."Take the time to read the whole thing ...
According to this report, Putin and Obama met last week in a private meeting during the G-20 Summit in St. Petersburg wherein the Russian leader warned his American counterpart that Syrian leader Assad was "fully prepared" to destroy the Tagba Dam holding back Lake Assad on the Euphrates River which would cause the largest man-made catastrophe ever to occur in the Middle East.
Putin further offered to Obama, this report says, a "last chance" to avert a total meltdown of the Middle East, should the US attack Syria, Russian technical assistance to secure all of Syria's chemical weapons under United Nations control in exchange for America not attacking.
Obama "quickly rebuffed" Putin's offer and warning, this report continues, whereupon Russian diplomats notified the Assad regime who, "within hours," then launched a series of air strikes against the Tagba Dam using Russian made KAB-500L-K-E-cluster warhead bombs, but "holding in reserve" the highly feared bunker buster KAB-1500L-Pr that is able to penetrate 10-20 meters of earth or 2 meters of reinforced concrete and would destroy the Tagba Dam completely.
Meanwhile, CNN is reporting that U.N. investigators are planning to return to Syria soon to follow up on several more allegations of chemical weapons use.
And keep in mind that nearly half the rebel fighters in Syria are now aligned to jihadist or hardline Islamist groups according to a new analysis of factions in the country's civil war. The aim of moderate rebel fighters is the overthrow of their country's authoritarian dictator, but jihadist groups want to transform Syria into a hard-line Islamic state within a regional Islamic "caliphate". Furthermore, the Obama administration has little oversight over whether US-funded supplies are falling prey to corruption -- or into the hands of the jihadists.
