    Moscow has managed to break the chain of color revolutions in the Middle East, the Russian defense minister said.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia's year-and-a-half counterterrorist campaign in Syria helped solve the geopolitical task of disrupting the chain of revolutions in the region, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Tuesday.

    "The deployment of our group in the Syrian Arab Republic helped solve the geopolitical task of breaking the chain of 'color revolutions' replicated in the Middle East and Africa," Shoigu said at a forum for young diplomats.

    Since 2011, Syria has been engulfed in a civil war, with government forces fighting against numerous opposition and terrorist groups, including al-Nusra Front and Daesh, banned in a range of countries, including Russia.

    Moscow has been conducting a counter-terrorist campaign in Syria since September 30, 2015, at President Bashar Assad's request.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin announced in December that the Syrian government and armed opposition groups had reached an agreement on a nationwide ceasefire in Syria and on readiness to start peace talks.

    "The likelihood is high that the geography of 'color revolutions' will expand," Shoigu added. "Their implementation allows for a minimal cost of resources and the limited use of own weapons and armed forces to crush regional powers while achieving political and economic goals."

    The US-led Western attempts to slow down the process of establishing a new world order lead to chaos and anarchy, the Russian defense minister said.

    "Relations between states are becoming increasingly strained. The struggle for resources and control of the routes of their transportation intensifies. Attempts by the West, led by the United States, to slow down the process of establishing a new and more just world order lead to growing chaos, anarchy and encounter rejection on the part of many states," he said.

    "Military force is becoming the main tool for solving international problems. A serious factor is the threat of international terrorism," he said.

      The televised gang bang on national sovereignty climaxed in Syria.
      We are entering a time of phase change: concurrent pro/anti globalist mass revolts, uncontrollable entropy. Stability of the NATO regime-change alliance is equally threatened by ISIS and Russia. The opening of an escape route eats the foundation of transnational structures just like terrorists do to resisting states.

      They've learned how to apply dirty tricks to world affairs on a grand scale.

      It is a very disheartening development.

      But we know even from ordinary life that there are people among us who only want to hurt and destroy, people with various mental disorders.

      Most laws in most places work to restrain such people.

      But here we have unbelievably well-financed institutions like CIA who have not only adopted the practice of employing such people, they have made it ordinary.

      Ordinary free rein for the kind of sick people every human population produces in some proportion. Plus all the resources and encouragement desired.

      Actually, one might think the original model for this came from Israel, a place which has done nothing but attack and abuse those who disagree with it for over half a century - all in the name of an meaningless ideology.

      It is truly possible that a very dark age lies ahead in world affairs.

      And I am sorry to say that in the case of the United States, the man I had hoped might be able to put a stop to some of it is starting to look as though he will fail.

      Rather than draining the swamp, Trump might just be drowning in it.
