    The Emperor Has No Clothes: Russia Exposes US Anti-ISIL Campaign Hypocrisy

    It is now clear to all the world that the US-trained "moderate" terrorists were being prepared by Washington to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and open the way for the Muslim Brotherhood to grab Syria, F. William Engdahl underscores.

    According to American-German researcher, strategic risk consultant and lecturer F. William Engdahl, the Russian leadership is now exposing the hypocrisy of Washington's anti-ISIL campaign just like the small boy of Hans Christian Anderson's famous fairy tale 'The Emperor's New Clothes,' who nailed it, by saying "Mother, look the Emperor has no clothes!"

    "What the successful Russian precision airstrikes have done is expose in all its ugly nakedness the Emperor's New Clothes. For more than one year, the Obama Administration claims it has committed the most awesome airpower on the planet allegedly to destroy ISIS [ISIL], which has been described as a 'ragtag band of militants running around the desert in basketball shoes'," Engdahl pointed out.

    "Curiously, until last week, ISIS has only expanded its web of power in Syria and Iraq under US bombings. Now, within 72 hours, the Russian military, launching only 60 bombing runs in 72 hours, hitting more than 50 ISIS targets, has brought the ISIS combatants into what the Russian Defense Ministry spokesman described as a state of 'panic' where more than 600 have deserted," the researcher underscored in his recent article for New Eastern Outlook.

    The Obama administration has been training and arming the so-called "moderate" terrorists which then, inexplicably, joined either the al-Qaeda affiliate al-Nusra Front or ISIL, dragging the region into further turmoil.

    However, the truth of the matter is that these insurgents were being trained to battle Syria's democratically elected, legitimate government of Bashar al-Assad.  

    "The US-trained 'moderate' terrorists were being readied, it's now clear to the entire world, in reality, to battle Assad and open the way for a Muslim Brotherhood takeover of Syria and a real plunge into darkness for the world if that were to succeed," Engdahl elaborated.

    Indeed, a handful of Russian fighter jets have accomplished in four days more, than the whole US-led anti-ISIL coalition in more than one year.

    So, what does it mean? It means that "Washington has been playing a dirty double game," the researcher highlighted.

    Thus, unsurprisingly, US Senator McCain and other Washington war hawks have cried their hearts out watching how Russian Air Force is eliminating their "assets" (as American geostrategist Zbigniew Brzezinski dubbed US-trained terrorists) in Syria.

    "Russia in the last weeks has completely out-maneuvered the diabolical, and they are diabolical, agenda of the Obama Administration not only in Syria but also in the entire Middle East and now in the EU with unleashing the flood of refugees," Engdahl stressed.

    Now, that the "hypocritical Obama Administration mask has been blown off," German and other EU governments have admitted that, regardless of Washington's vocal displeasure, President Vladimir Putin has demonstrated that Russia is "the essential part of any peaceful resolution of the Syria war," which is in its turn a clue to the current refugee crisis in the European Union.

    By untying Syria's "Gordian knot", Vladimir Putin is likely to kill two birds with one stone: to restore peace in Syria and to halt the refugee flow into Europe.

    "The Norwegian Parliament's Nobel Peace Prize Committee, rather than consider John Kerry, might consider Vladimir Putin and Russian Defense Minister, Sergei Shoigu, for the prize," Engdahl hinted.

      I disagree with F. William Engdahl with regards to the so-called "Nobel Peace Prize' (apologies to Alfred Nobel) saying it should be considered for the Russian Leader and the Russian Defense Minister. The "Peace Prize" was forever tarnished when it was given to a would be War Criminal who resides in the Heart of Darkness interestingly called "The White House." The Norwegians can do what they do best award it to another resident at The Heart of Darkness. They should not tarnish the image of the greatest leader in all recorded history by giving him such a worthless award.
    • The Emperor has no clothes, and has shamelessly has turned around and even shown us his exceptional ass !! Bwahahaha !!!

      Well I hate to say this but: I told you so, American funded mercenary war.
      To install it's own puppet government always was the plan always will be the plan from country to country it's the same old story the duly elected government of the people is corrupt, so, lets declare war on these people and install our own government- oh! And as for the UN, not a problem my friend it's based in our country we have the majority and may veto any other countries non compliant vote to suite our purpose. Now that's democracy at it's best, what a joke.
      And best of all, America is being dictated to by Israel and Zionist owned banks and Zionist treasury.
      And still people and governments refuse to accept but, people are starting to wake up and government being duly elected are being told to stop being a vassal of the American led culture.
      It has been said: humanitarian aid will always succeed in winning friends and overcoming enemies, military force will enrage people and the cloud of war will forever be upon the peoples country.
      Perhaps American politician and there cronies need to read: HOW to WIN FRIENDS and INFLUENCE PEOPLE. ironically the author American Dale Carnegie-.... hahahhahahha.
      And Kerry for a peace prize well I did mention the UN and it's connections- what a farce.
    • thanks for citing me

      already some weeks ago i commented on sputnik.de 'der Kaiser ist nackt', a article @ Der Freitag was deleted by automatic NSA censorschip, I wrote too much about, or better: against, barrel bombs. But I was referring to the Donald Cook Incident in 2014, I guess that's still keeping the US aircraftcarriers away from Syria, a jammed nuclear reactor is no fun.

      Now we realize what was going on all the time in Syria: a NATO run terrorist- incubator plus a bombodrom with some synergy- effects.

      good morning, western european states, this is the moment to quit NATO membership! Olav Palme & Enrico Mattei shouldn't have died in vain

      Putin can kill more birds than that. He should publicly declare the "green screen" fake beheading videos with no fight/no fear victims are just that, fakes. Of course that means ISIS/ISIL is a fraud. This would roll up the whole ISIS fraud like a window blind. Poof, gone the west's chosen bogeyman, terrorizer of the world, Chaosistan creator, causer of mass migrations, creator of failed states, pet terrorists serving the west's interests, etc.!
