By Putin: "Terrorism without money is an animal without teeth".
Russia really put the screws on Turkey in early December to expose the oil smuggling. The footage at Syria.mil.ru is suffering availability problems but it's on YouTube too. The briefing is at
. I hope it becomes available again.
Given my opening quote, here's a few telling paragraphs from RT:
"Russia cannot comprehend that such a large-scale business as oil smuggling could not have been noticed by the Turkish authorities. Russia concludes that the Turkish leadership is directly involved in the smuggling."
"The US-led coalition has failed to intensify strikes on oil tankers and other IS oil infrastructure. Russia will send intelligence on potential targets to coalition members, assuming that a lack of intelligence may be the reason for their hesitance. Russia, for its part, will continue attacking the oil business of the terrorists and expects the US-led coalition to do the same."
Note the second quote from RT days the "oil business". Isn't business and gain what drives so much in our countries?
So if this is from back in December, why have we not seen this evidence broadcast more widely? If can only be that the people who own the western media are at the least aligned with the people that run the western block countries; if you like, the "New World Order". It is not in their interest to broadcast this evidence because the USA is intimately involved in supporting Islamic State (via the CIA), as well as Turkey. Various EU countries are also privy to the arrangement and supportive of this charade.
Any war is now fought on multiple fronts. Air, land and sea via armed forces add of old are employed ; but space and satellites are now involved ; attacks on communications and infrastructure are more critical than ever ; and the War On Information via the media is at an all time high. Despite Russia releasing credible information regarding Islamic State, if it's not in the interest of the western powers, they will do everything they can to block its dissemination by the media.
For those who want to really find out what's going on in the world, it means reading more widely. I highly commend to you Michel Chassodovsky and his team at
https://www.google.com.au/url?q=http://www.globalresearch.ca. Starting with this highly acclaimed site will give you insights and links to other sources. Secondly, I recommend RT, which has offices in several countries and reported of several nationalities. Their news feed is generally interesting and often unique, and TV current affairs/talk shows like 'Cross Talk' and 'Worlds Apart with Oksana Boyko' provide an alternate view to what we've been used to, which when added to our existing sources brings balance.
Enjoy the reading 😀.
