China Enters The Fray

Syria is proving to be one of the most important proxy battlefields in modern history. For the first time in the modern era since before the Cold War we are seeing a genuine shift in global power from the banksters that were once behind colonialism, now behind the US MIC/Oil empire, to a new multi-polar world of East and West. The moral high-ground that used to lie with the West against the Soviet Union now lies with the emerging Eastern alliance whose military inventions only happen at the request of governments instead of to overthrow them. The shift in global balance of power is snowballing at an unbelievable rate, we are experiencing a very important time right now.  With the Iraqi border on the mid term shopping list after Turkey is secured, the Eastern allies are now rapidly eyeballing control in the long term of all major borders to the Syria except a tiny sliver belonging to Israel and (more importantly) in the short term closing in for the death-blow to the US funded rebels and the terrorists.

If you want to get the heads up on the astonishing scandal that is the US black oil trade in Iraq (the real reason behind the Iraq war), and the ISIS and Peshmerga forces that protect it, check out this previous post of mine for a detailed look at the shocking facts:

This latest development with China throwing it's hat into the ring is reported on below, as taken from that excellent website for military and intelligence analysis, SouthFront:

Syria and China have made an agreement that the Chinese military will provide humanitarian aid to Syria, Director of the Office for International Military Cooperation of China’s Central Military Commission, Guan Youfei said on August 16, Chinese Xinhua news agency reported. Youfei also noted that a trainining of the Syrian army personnel by Chinese military instructors has been discussed.
Youfei arrived in Damascus for talks with Syrian Defense Minister Fahad Jassim al-Freij in order to find a political solution to the Syrian crisis and set closer military ties with Damascus.
“The Chinese and Syrian militaries traditionally have a friendly relationship, and the Chinese military is willing to keep strengthening exchanges and cooperation with the Syrian military,” he said.
Xinhua has not provided detailes about the agreed Chinese humanitarian aid mission in Syria. There are constant rumors taht China sent or is going to send military advisers to Syria to assist the country’s anti-terrorism efforts. However, there is no clear evidence that China has been invoved into the conflict.
The report said that the high-ranking Chinese officer also met with an unknown Russian general during his visit to Damascus. It’s important to note that Youfei’s visit came amid crucial military developmest in and around Syria (learn more about Russian military build up).
The spate of Moscow’s military actions in the region could push Beijing to follow its partner in the region to set the ground for gaining diplomatic and financial revenue before the Syrian conflict turned into its final stage.
It’s clear that if China offers assistance after the long-awaited liberation of Aleppo city by the Syrian-Russian-Iranian coalition, it will not have a lack of chances to become a major player in Syria.
