Bolton Slams Russia, Says S-300 Sale in Syria Is ‘Significant Escalation’

Speaking to reporters on Monday, National Security Adviser John Bolton slammed Russia for the announced sale of S-300 air defense systems to the Syrian government, demanding that they “reconsider” and warning that the US would view this as a “significant escalation” of the Syrian war.

Russia announced the move after a recent attack on the Syrian coast by Israel, during which a Russian Il-20 was shot down. Russia says the more advanced S-300s will be safer. Israel had insisted Syria deliberately attacked the Russian plane, while Russia says the Israeli jets were under fire from Syria and “hid” behind the larger Russian plane, getting it caught in the fire.

Bolton dismissed both of those explanations, however, saying that “really the party responsible for the shooting down of the Russian plane is Iran,” even though Iran had no involvement in the incident whatsoever.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am having a double-Picard face palm upon reading these statements, and one has to wonder; is being able to lie with impunity to the people with whom you are speaking the most significant requirement of America's National Security Advisor?!?

And please, how is Russia's sending in a defensive weapons system so that Syria can protect itself from attack, an "escalation", when the Syrians, with Russian help, have pretty successfully routed the rebels in their country?!? As my late grandmother would have said, "The horse is already out of the barn" here.

All of the above is because US intervention in Syria failed, miserably, and Bashar Al Assad has pretty much taken his country back. That why Bolton is at his hubristic, unhinged worst in these statements, and why the "next US-generated war" in the region will be engineered to change that outcome.

Advisor Bolton knows precisely where he wants this kind of intense anti-Russian demonization to steer the American people, and that most probably is into an horrendous war against Iran, Syria, and Lebanon, for good measure, with Russia, and possibly China lining up with these countries to defend them against the US onslaught.

And unfortunately, just as has happened with Iraq right before the US invasion/occupation, (Saddam, allegedly, had weapons of mass destruction, remember?!?), we are being force-fed a false narrative with which to "ease" the American public into the right mindset to allow for some kind of "false flag" against American interests, to be blamed on Russia, Iran,or Syria, or all of them, as the "justification" to proceed to war against them.
