Syrian Crisis: What Will Happen Next?


This article was written by Brandon Smith and originally published at

The Syrian crisis and the confluence of clashing interests there was entirely predictable. In fact, I wrote an article on my former website in 2010 outlining the potential for Syria as a high value catalyst for global conflict titled “Will Globalists Trigger Yet Another World War?”

In it, I summarized the dubious history of wars initiated over the past century, including the nature of false flags and false paradigms created by globalists designed to divide nations and peoples and turn them against each other. This strategy of engineered war (along with engineered economic collapse) has been used time and time again by the elites to artificially generate chaos and then consolidate and centralize power while the masses are blinded by confusion.

Even back then, the problem with Syria seemed obvious:

“…We have a nuclear armed Israel itching to attack Iran. We have Iran engaged in a defense pact with Syria against Israel. We have Syria with Russian navy bases and weapons on its soil, and we have the U.S. rampaging through the Middle East encroaching on the borders of Pakistan and Yemen, essentially pissing off everyone. What we have is a Globalist made recipe for disaster, using the same ingredients they have used for the last several major wars…”

Only a year after I published the piece the civil uprising in Syria began, starting with the “Daraa protest movement”, aided by covert intelligence agencies including the CIA.

In 2012, I decided to reexamine my original theory on Syria as a global catalyst in my article “Syria And Iran Dominoes Lead To World War.”

In that article, I felt it was necessary to summarize trends in the region, where they might lead, and how globalists might exploit each scenario to achieve a false conflict between East and West. I predicted that the entire Syrian insurgency was conjured out of the ether by NATO interests, due to the suspicious nature of the Council On Foreign Relations and their public statements suddenly SUPPORTING Al-Qaida in Syria. U.S. involvement in the funding and training of the organization we now know as ISIS (or al-Qaida 2.0) has been proven.

I predicted that U.S. ground troops would enter Syria. This has happened, though the U.S. government maintains that their role and numbers will be “limited.”

I suggested that once U.S. troops were deployed in any capacity in the region, Iran would join forces with the Syrian government under their already existing mutual defense pact. Today, Iranian troops are entering Syria en masse for combat operations.

I also predicted that U.S. involvement in Syria would eventually elicit a military response from Russia and a financial response from China. Though China has not yet used the conflict as an excuse to accelerate the dumping of U.S. treasuries, Russia is now fully committed to airstrikes and is preparing a ground invasion, possibly exceeding 150,000 troops.

Some developments I suggested in my previous articles have not yet surfaced, though I believe there is more than enough momentum for them to be triggered. For instance, I believe Israel is still the ultimate wild card in the Syrian crisis. A military response from Israel is more than possible, particularly against Iran in retaliation for flooding into the region. Further U.S. involvement, including the greater commitment of major naval assets, is likely. And if the U.S. or Israel escalate, I believe Iran will shut down the Strait of Hormuz, perhaps even with the aid of Russia.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has hinted that Israeli activity in Syrian airspace will be obstructed, and reports of some “near misses” between Russian and Israeli fighters have surfaced.

Currently, U.S. “relations” with Russia are at lows not seen since the Cold War. In the meantime, the globalists have created a perfect storm of conflicting interests that could very well lead to outright world war. That said, there are different brands of warfare. And, as I pointed out five years ago, the elites do not necessarily need the threat of nuclear war to open the door to collapse.

Economic warfare would be just as devastating to many parts of the globe and the U.S. in particular, causing massive population reduction through starvation in the span of a few months while leaving large areas of infrastructure intact. Economic warfare is also a perfect distraction of the public eye away from the crimes of international financiers. Our fiscal structure is already in the middle of an implosion set in motion by deliberately destructive central banking policies. But in the midst of economic warfare, such monetary atrocities can simply be blamed on “the treachery of the East.”  The Syrian debacle makes an economic battle scenario between East and West “believable” for many people around the world.

Still, wider regional warfare of the shooting variety is certainly guaranteed in the near future.

Saudi Arabia has denounced Russian and Iranian involvement in Syria and has increased support to “moderate rebels.” Of course, as we have seen repeatedly in the past couple of years, there are in fact NO moderates in Syria as rebel groups continue to obtain Western money and weapons and then join the ranks of ISIS.

The Saudis have made it clear that they will never accept a situation in which the Assad regime continues to hold power in Syria. They have threatened a military response in the event that Assad gains superiority over the insurgency. Keep in mind that the Saudis have already committed forces to Yemen.

Tensions are also increasing between Saudi Arabia and Iran over Syrian involvement, despite recent Saudi support for the U.S./Iran nuclear deal. The European Council On Foreign Relations has warned that there are now no “mediators for deescalation” in the region. Of course, this is exactly the way they prefer it.

Turkey is also now a factor, with Turkish officials claiming airspace violations by Russia, and Turkish forces operating in at least a limited capacity in Syria and Iraq.  Syria is a gasoline soaked mess and there are too many potential sparks to keep track of.  The globalists have conjured an environment in which a disastrous domino effect is almost guaranteed.

Another rather unexpected consequence of the Syrian crisis is the now active effort by the elites to initiate a Cloward-Piven strategy using so-called Syrian “refugees” to destabilize the EU and perhaps even the U.S.  Already, the suggested immigration count for such refugees, many of whom are not even from Syria, has risen from 10,000 bound for the U.S. to 100,000.  I believe as the crisis continues to grow this number will be increased to 1 million refugees or more bound for the U.S.  Expect many extremist elements to be shipped into our borders along with them.

It is absolutely imperative to remember regardless of what happens next, almost every element of this crisis has been staged. War and economic despair are the ultimate expedient world-changing tools. They wipe the slate nearly clean, as it were, and mold public perception through fear. That which you thought impossible today becomes rather reasonable tomorrow after crisis takes hold; and this includes the final deconstruction of constitutional values, the militarization of our society, the loss of financial prosperity, the extreme degradation of living standards and the ultimate centralization of everything.

It is also important to realize that there are no sides in this conflict. The East/West paradigm is a sham of epic proportions and always has been. False sides are meant to distract and bewilder the public. They are designed to create counterfeit cross-sections of blame. They are an anathema to truth.

For further and deeper analysis on possible future developments on a global scale please read my articles “The Economic End Game Explained” and “Has America Been Set Up As History’s Ultimate Bumbling Villain?”

The question today is merely one of timing. How long before a negative trigger is introduced? How long before Israeli planes come into contact with Russian or Iranian fighters? How long before U.S. troops come into contact with Russian troops? How long before Israel or Saudi Arabia strike Iran? And if the U.S. backs out completely, how long before the entire dynamic of the Middle East is flipped and America loses petro-status for the dollar? With the speed of events forming a fiscal-political riptide, it is hard to imagine we will be waiting very long to find out.

  1. One aspect we might consider……if you want to wear down your enemy and their resources, while diverting the enemy’s attention away from another hot spot (you don’t want them in), is to create and manipulate a manufactured enemy and push them into the region you want, causing your main enemy to react. After both enemies are worn down, then you go in for the objective.

    Therefore….ISIS, a creation of the United States, is given (by mistake) tons of weapons and other hardware, vacant infrastructure bombed (with no videos), encouraged to enter Syria and join with a fake Syrian Free Army of 5 guys, then forces Russia to react while taking their focus off Ukraine.

    Top war dogs then sit around drinking scotch while contemplating an accidental mishap between Russia and the U.S., reminiscent of the false flag ‘Gulf of Tonkin’ incident, and if the economic timing is just right and the dollar takes a nose dive, then WWIII will begin.

    1. Since ISIS, etc were created and then aided, abetted by the CIA why are you astonished that they would be assisted into our nation and then used against American citizens in the bid to destroy our nation and raise the fear level so that the treasonous upper echelons of the military, gov, etc can offer to assist in this problem, then establishing a military coup on America?

      The CIA was behind pretty much every “terrorist” strike created and implemented upon US soil in acts of Treason against the American people and the US Constitution.

      The borders are open for a reason, and it is not for our safety, again it is just Treason which is an every day happening here by those who SERVE WITHIN our government at all stages. The border patrol is supposed to KEEP THEIR OATH not keep loyally following the presidential not elected impersonator in office. But instead they are “Just Following Order” which is Treason against the American people. Think not? If told to NOT STOP and detain any unlawful foreigners but to stop and detain, question, etc American citizens and cannot recognize that as an unlawful order since that is the exact opposite of our laws then you are too dumbed down to be allowed to … thinking of something clean … even walk down the street alone unescorted by a “real, thinking adult.

      Seriously how can anyone NOT question orders to stop American citizens at the 100 mile wide borders – as if that is even lawful and even legal in anyway? Or to arrest the ones feeding the homeless? Or …? Or …? Admittedly the US Constitution requires that the Militia stop invasions, but as the (so called) replacements for the Militia YOUR duty is to do the Militias Constitutionally assigned duties and KEEP YOUR OATH.

      See why Thomas Jefferson was correct when he said: “For a people who are free, and who mean to remain so, a well organized and armed militia is their best security”? Because almost none of those that serve within governmental professional law enforcement agencies – whatever name they give them- can be trusted to KEEP THE OATH which is the ONLY thing that gives them any lawfulness behind their actions – and I do mean by the actions they themselves do, or by the actions they allow their “brothers and sisters in uniform” to do as it IS their responsibility to not do or allow to be done.

      Think before you (generic “you”) blindly follow orders or blindly just do your job because if not it will be YOU that we are prosecuting for Treason against the American people.

  2. In THEIR own words….

    The Shadow Government

    Following a catastrophic national emergency, the President, or his successor can authorize the establishment of a temporary “shadow government” to maintain control of the essential functions of the Federal Government. President Bush activated the shadow government on September 11, 2001 shortly after the second attack on the World Trade Center.

    Every federal agency has designated key individuals to be part of an “Emergency Relocation Group”. These ERGs are assigned to an alternate secure location on a rotating basis and are ready to take over the duty of supporting the National Essential Functions of this nation in an emergency.

    Note: This is the backbone of a FEMA PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT a.k.a. Martial Law

    1. Just now getting to the comments under this article, and I would like to note that in the url you furnished is a “1” which should not be there. Let me explain more fully — everything you’ve noted about the shadow government, and about Continuity of Government (COG) is of course true and verified. However, that site you linked to is a spoof site, not an authenticate government site. But don’t feel bad, lol — I fell for it earlier this year myself, and actually posted that article here, for about a half hour’s duration before I figured out that the article is a spoof. I immediately pulled the article and hoped no one read it before I took it down, lol. Look at the banner atop that page and you’ll see their inconspicuous acknowledgement that the page is not a White House page. Specifically, look for the words “Not the”. 😉

      I appreciate your excellent post-making here, and would not say anything about that error, except for the fact that others may hit that link and not know it was a spoof. And in closing, again I’ll repeat — everything you said in your comment is quite true, and I am in full agreement with you. Thank you for posting comments here at Oath Keepers national.


      1. Yep….I need to be more careful and I am also seeing propaganda / fabricated article on Yahoo News a few days ago, of which one was shown to be from a reputable news agency, stating that Hillary had stepped down from her run for president, followed by…Gowdy announcing that he was dis-banning the Benghazi Hearings…..THEN it was reported that Hillary announced that she was back in the race and wanted to prove a point that Gowdy was after her, not for the truth, but for political assassination.

        I have noticed a few more different subjects that would normally cause (ME) to copy/paste and comment on.

        With that said….I have added a comment about the Benghazi Hearing yesterday (Thursday) and I DO believe my research is accurate. I welcome comments….

  3. “Note: This is the backbone of a FEMA PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT a.k.a. Martial Law”

    And it IS Treason, starting with Bush AND his administration on down for a start on charges, arrests, and actual Grand jury prosecutions, not the “judicial” branch ran ones which are NOT in the US Constitution.

  4. This is a follow-up comment and observation that has led the U.S. into Syria, and it goes back to 2011.

    If you saw towards the end of the hearing on Benghazi Thursday, you might have caught a very important and revealing question(s) from Rep Jordan concerning Hillary’s knowledge about the meeting that was going-on behind closed doors that night at the annex in Benghazi.

    Jordan suggested to Hillary to ONLY answer “yes” or “no” because of National Security concerns…….

    She was asked in several ways about her knowledge concerning the meeting in reference to shipping STINGER MISSILES to Turkey and then smuggle said weapons to ISIS in Syria. Not exactly in those words, but she of course answered “no.”

    We can conclude that Hillary was advised by counsel and the White House / CIA, not venture into that dark subject matter.

    Well…it just so happens to be the crux of the entire episode that took place September 11th, 2012 in Benghazi. Hillary claims that she knew very little about the annex and compound and why Benghazi was selected as a location for State Department representation.

    It wasn’t more than three days later when those supposedly “stolen stinger missiles” reported by U.S. media, were loaded on a ship and shipped to Turkey for ISIS (McCain’s 5 guys) in Syria.

    Because of “National Security” Hillary will be given a pat-on-the-back for taking the people of the United States down a rabbit hole that cannot be dug up. And like Matt Drudge stated on the Alex Jones show, “if they took Hillary’s brain and placed it in a jar, the stupid people would still vote for her(sic).”

    My question is… you think that Hillary knew everything about a secret meeting while sending Stevens and staff to a bogus compound/ annex, knowing that Benghazi would be attacked to cover-up the meeting (after the deal was complete between an al Qaeda operative and others)? WE learned during the hearing of an al Qaeda operative.

    Why couldn’t the meeting take place at the Tripoli Embassy? The obvious reason was the expected outcome?

    Another clue is the question by Rep Jordan concerning “confidential paperwork” in the annex and what happened to it?

    THEY KNOW what happened and why it happened, because at the time in 2012….there was very little knowledge about the United States providing weapons to ISIS in Syria, not to mention Iraq. This was a False Flag and I will bet, Stevens didn’t have a clue of what was coming, therefore…the lame excuse that it was because of a anti-Muslim video was meant for the ignorant.

    Note: During 2012 at an un-disclosed base in Turkey, CIA and Special Forces training of al Qaeda/ISIS operatives for an eventual incursion/recruitment campaign into Syria didn’t go very well…causing several U.S. personnel to walk off the assignment.

    “Currently the U.S. State Department has one official on the ground in Libya, as well as five contractors who specialize in “explosive ordinance disposal”, all working with the rebel Transitional National Council to find the looted missiles, White House spokesperson Jay Carney told reporters.” NOTE: Sept 27th, 2011

    NOTE: Sept 11th, 2012

    “A major story about the escalating war in Syria was overshadowed by news of the al Qaeda attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi. Three days after that attack, The Times (UK) carried a story that a Libyan freighter loaded with stolen SA-7 antiaircraft missiles had offloaded at a Turkish port.”

    “That September 14 article was captioned,“Syrian rebels squabble over weapons as biggest shipload arrives from Libya.”

    Meanwhile, ABC has reported that one of three Americans killed with Ambassador Stevens was part of group assigned to locate these looted Libyan MANPADS, shoulder-fired missiles that can be used to shoot down airliners.”
