Trump Warns Hillary Could Start WW3 in Syria, Clinton Operatives (Ret) Gen. John R. Allen and @RobertCaruso Demand War

Trump: Just Say No to Hillary's Plans for WW3 in Syria

Trump's slam of Hillary Clinton as the woman who could start WW3 over the neocons' stubborn refusal to accept Assad isn't going anywhere came in an interview with the Reuters wire service, and was the top story on the Drudge Report Wednesday, October 26. Trump emphasized that as president he would focus on ISIS rather than Assad, and again raised the fact that war with Damascus also means war with Iran and with nuclear armed Russia, the latter of which is rapidly modernizing its arsenal. Trump also pointed out that Hillary claims she'll be able to negotiate with Putin after demonizing him and accusing the Russian government of hacking her personal server (which illegally contained highly classified data) as well as the Democratic National Committee (DNC)'s servers:

“What we should do is focus on ISIS. We should not be focusing on Syria,” said Trump as he dined on fried eggs and sausage at his Trump National Doral golf resort. “You’re going to end up in World War Three over Syria if we listen to Hillary Clinton.

”You’re not fighting Syria any more, you’re fighting Syria, Russia and Iran, all right? Russia is a nuclear country, but a country where the nukes work as opposed to other countries that talk,” he said.
...
On Russia, Trump again knocked Clinton’s handling of U.S.-Russian relations while secretary of state and said her harsh criticism of Putin raised questions about “how she is going to go back and negotiate with this man who she has made to be so evil,” if she wins the presidency.

On the deterioration of ties with the Philippines, Trump aimed his criticism at Obama, saying the president “wants to focus on his golf game” rather than engage with world leaders.

Gen. John Allen (of the Qatar monarchy funded @BrookingsDoha Center's Washington affiliate), Robert Caruso and Michael D. Weiss Incredible Hubris Imagining that the U.S. Can 'Kill Russians' in Syria with Impunity and Not Start a Global Conflict

Trump's reference to Russia as a country whose 'nukes work' was likely a reference to Moscow's recent test of its older generation RS-18 and brand new liquid fueled successor to that 1970s era SS-18 'Satan' design, the Sarmat (which has already been dubbed the 'Satan 2' by CNN) capable of wiping out an area the size of Texas with multiple multi-megaton warheads. Hillary Clinton and her minion retired Gen. John Allen's belligerence meanwhile, assumes the Russians would never dare brandish their massive strategic and tactical nuclear arsenal to back the U.S. off an attack on Russian forces in Syria. Or kill American/NATO personnel who 'aren't' in eastern Ukraine near the front lines or far from the Donbass combat zone in retaliation for the deaths of Russian servicemen using some combination of plainclothes spetsnaz infiltrators and air/cruise missile strikes that can easily penetrate Ukrainian air space.

The fact that Vladimir Putin has already referenced in an interview with Bloomberg News the Cuban Missile Crisis of October 1962 -- during which the only way Moscow could deter a wipeout of its contingent on the Fidel Castro-dominated island was through deploying tactical nukes to defend its medium range missiles and crews there -- has apparently been ignored by Gen. Allen and other Clinton advisors. So too, has Russia's demonstrated capability to saturate U.S. special forces positions at Hasakah and perhaps even Incirlik Air Base in Turkey with fly-under-the-radar, 1,800-mile range Kalibr cruise missiles fired from the Black or Caspian Seas should the U.S. 'wipe out' Russia's base at Kheimmim as neocon chickenhawks like The Daily Beast's Michael D. Weiss claim Washington could do 'in two days':

Neocon Nutjobs Ignore the Testimony of CJCS Dunford that An All Out Assault on Assad and No Fly Zone Attempt in Syria Means Going to War with Russia

Robert Caruso tweeted this week that Donald Trump dared to disagree with the former Dean of the U.S. Army War College. He doesn't notice his own rampaging hypocrisy in basically ignoring the opinion of the highest ranked U.S. Marine and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Joseph Dunford, who bluntly informed Senators fantasizing about striking Assad's forces without having to confront the Russians that their wish is a fantasy...any no fly zone or package of strikes sufficient to actually ground Assad's air force and hinder his ground forces, Dunford told the stunned idiot Senators, means war with Russia. The video of Dunford stating this in a thirty second clip has been shared thousands of times on YouTube, there is no way in hell Caruso or his neocon buddy Michael D. Weiss can pretend they aren't aware of it.

Bill Clinton giving a pay to play speech in Moscow for a half million dollars, back before #CrookedHillary and her minion Robert Caruso were blaming Russia for EVERYTHING bad

In addition to ignoring the risks of the Russians shooting down U.S. jets or massively retaliating which Dunford and even Director of National Intelligence James Clapper have publically discussed, there's another problem with Gen. John Allen's Washington Post op-ed: the non-disclosure that the retired general's think tank co-author Charles Lister is sponsored by the Saudi government. Or more specifically, Riyadh's ATM machine called Saudi Aramco

That's right folks, the Mideast Institute where @Charles_Lister works has taken large sums of money from Riyadh to support the 'moderate' Syria jihadists, just as the Clinton Foundation and (if the subsequently redacted Saudi media story is correct) Clinton's campaign has too. The Clintons pay to play scam also took money from Turkish businessmen who worked closely with the administration of president turned dictator Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

The impetus behind Caruso's 'Trump is a Russian agent and his supporters are all Kremlin dupes' campaign is obfuscating the fact that the Clintons have sold American Mideast policy to the highest bidder, as well as taken money from oligarchs and banks with Kremlin connections in return for a Bill Clinton speech in Moscow and selling American uranium rights to a joint Canadian/Russian venture.

Through his employer Lister is essentially an unregistered agent of a foreign government, Saudi Arabia, that desperately wants regime change in Syria at any cost after sinking billions of dollars and thousands of mercenaries lives into the effort since 2011. It is very likely Lister's status as a sock puppet for a foreign power, even a supposed U.S. ally that produced 15 of the 19 9/11 hijackers, led to Lister being temporarily questioned upon his arrival at Baltimore international airport (BWI) a few months ago.

Not everyone it seems, in the American 'Deep State' or at the Pentagon is too pleased with the idea of American servicemen dying in Syria or Yemen for Saudi Arabia or Qatar. Perhaps some of those dissident Deep Staters even managed to express their dissatisfaction with the inability to label Lister a foreign agent under current U.S. law to a friend at the Transportation Safety Administration (TSA), and the result was Lister's brief questioning upon returning 'home' to the U.S. 

Robert Caruso is Too Stupid to Understand Proxy Wars Go Both Ways and Caruso's Favorite U.S. Ally (or Benefactor of Hillary Clinton's Campaign) KSA is Losing the Yemen War

The fact that the Saudis are not only losing by proxy in Aleppo and across Syria, but also facing humiliating defeat in their war of aggression against Yemen is adding to the all-out lobbying push to put American servicemen's lives at risk in direct confrontation with Russia on Riyadh's behalf. Even if Robert Caruso and Michael D. Weiss are too arrogant or stupid to understand the concept, that proxy wars go both ways.

To put it in blunt language supposed 'military experts' Weiss and Caruso can comprehend: Saudi soldiers and U.S.-supplied Abrams tanks can get lit up by Russian Kornet or Iranian Toophan missiles in the hands of Houthi tribesmen even more easily than Caruso's beloved (Al)CIA(eda) supported TOW jihadis can hit T-72s and T-90s equipped with modern reactive Russian armor.  Supplying anti-aircraft systems to the Syrian jihadists, assuming they can even competently operate such hardware, almost certainly means the Yemeni Saleh loyalists will get Russian/Iranian SAMs to use to down Royal Saudi Air Force jets and more cruise missiles to strike at Saudis in their bases and cities.

Who is Robert Caruso and What Was This Hillary Operative Doing for Three Months at PWC This Summer as PriceWaterhouseCoopers Worked with DNC IT Firm Crowdstrike?

Once you look beyond the war cry speech at the Democratic National Convention of Gen. Allen and his op-ed, you find figures like the former State Dept. bureaucrat turned Clinton operative Caruso. These twisted individuals are, like The Daily Beast/CNN regular neocon 'ISIS expert' Michael Weiss, singing off the same 'our war against Syria will be easy and won't start WW3 because the Russians won't dare fight back' song sheet this week. Caruso and Weiss are  justifiably getting mocked and scorned for their cakewalk war with the Russians fantasies on Twitter, including by The Intercept journalist Glenn Greenwald. But the real story yet to be told is how a former U.S. Navy security officer and State Department secretary came to be one of the Clinton camp's leading advocates for war with Syria online in the first place.

For example, Robert Caruso's LinkedIn bio lists a recently concluded 3-month-stint with PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PWC) in D.C. Did Caruso's 'work' for PWC while also 'serving' as a Hillary For America (HFA) fellow have anything to do with PWC's publicized relationship with Crowdstrike, the IT firm led by a Russian-born Atlantic Council fellow Dmitri Alperovitch (the Atlantic Council being another think tank like the Mideast Institute funded by foreign governments, including sponsors of the 'moderate' Syria jihadists Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey)? It is Crowdstrike which blames Russia for the DNC email dump that may very well have been the work of inside leakers and for which the (Moldovan) Romanian hacker Guccifer 2.0 claimed credit (and apparently used an English language Yandex webmail account OUTSIDE OF RUSSIA to spearphish DNC staffers).

 

Crowdstrike provided much of the (dubious) basis for the 'U.S. Intelligence Community assessment' (aka a DNC press release on USIC letterhead) which turned out to be the opinion of the DNI James Clapper and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). DHS happens to be the agency where Alperovitch's wife works drumming up more business for her husband's company and thus, she and her colleagues have every incentive to label the DNC leaks a foreign government sponsored rather than individual or insider generated hack. 

Robert Caruso, the former US Navy security officer and State Department employee who now says Donald J. Trump is a Russian agent after tweeting out Saudi firster anti-Shia agitprop

Robert 'rafidah' Caruso's Saudi Firster, Sunni Sectarian and Anti-Shia Rants -- Time to Check That Security Clearance and Audit Any Potential Foreign Contacts Caruso Has?

Mr. Caruso's history of sociopathic vitriol now dressed up as faux humanitarianism against activists like 'Syria Girl' Mimi al-Laham and participants in the GamerGate movement has been well documented, at 21stCenturyWire.com. On top of tweets and statements he later tried to attribute to the hacking of his account in 2014 (without providing the slightest evidence of any hacking), Caruso has also issued anti-Shi'a Muslim tirades reminiscent of Friday preaching from a Saudi Wahhabi-dominated mosque. All while claiming with  the chutzpah typical of a Hillary campaign hack that his critics are Islamophobes and racists, because Caruso happens to be black and an expert at playing the race/victimhood/LGBT card.

For his part, Caruso denies that he tweeted rants about 'rafidahs' at Iraqi Shi'a activist Haider Sumeri. The term roughly translates as 'rejectionist' and is also synonymous among takfiri jihadists including the Al-Qaeda/Nusra terrorists in Syria Caruso wishes to save from Russian bombs with 'apostates'.  But as with his sociopathic fantasies of 'Syria being torn apart' Mimi al-Laham and others screenshotted and saved the 'hacked' tweets of Caruso, exposing his clumsy lies:

RUSSIA INSIDER: In one disturbing sample, Sumeri points to a series of tweets by Robert Caruso, a former US Navy cryptologic technician (internal security specialist) who served in Afghanistan and who later consulted for the State Department, and who has been widely cited across the military or ‘.mil-blogosphere’ and mainstream media alike:

IRAQI ACTIVIST HAIDAR SUMERI: While Caruso discusses and debates the United States’ policies towards Syria on MSNBC, Caruso - with his mask lifted - posts horrific tweets of how he will “enjoy” seeing a Syrian woman’s “beloved Syria torn apart with violence.” [note: Caruso later tweeted that his Twitter account had been hacked when it posted these lines].

Going back to 2013, Caruso’s tweets mentioned things such as how he does not care for the plight of the Syrian people, and how he believes the United States “should let them suffer.” Caruso’s tweets even included suggesting he is “at peace” with a situation where the people in someone’s hometown would be raped and the town pillaged. In one instance, against me specifically, he called me a “rejectionist” - an English translation of the Arabic anti-Shiite slur of rafidha used by groups like the Islamic State and al-Qaeda to demean and justify attacking Shiites - somewhat akin in usage to the word “apostate.” Reider Visser, a Norwegian historian and fellow at the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs, mentioned that Caruso’s anti-Shiite language is alarming and emphasized that there is no other plausible English interpretation for Caruso’s remark of “rejectionist” other than rafida.

This form of anti-Shiite bullying even extended to telling me that Shiites are haram - or “sinful” - using the same nomenclature used by the Islamic State and Al Qaeda to justify their car bombs targeting civilians, detonating Mosques (with people in them), forced displacement, deportation and acts of murder on such a mass scale that they border - if not fulfill - the United Nations requirements for the classification of “genocide.” Caruso then continued on to detail how the United States is at war with Shiites - not just with countries such as Iran or groups like Hezbollah, but with all Shiites. This is the person discussing and debating foreign policy on American media, and acting as an expert for TV stations on American foreign policy.

While showing signs of sympathy for the viciously anti-Shi'a mindset of America's Saudi 'ally', Caruso has in recent months accused Donald Trump, as well as almost anyone supporting Trump like Roger J. Stone, of being either Russian agents or dupes for Russia. All while promoting the work of unregistered 'think tank' agents of the Saudi Kingdom whose D.C. Embassy aided assets attacked the United States on 9/11. This appears to be a case of one finger pointed at Mr. Caruso's political enemies and four fingers pointed back at him and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) bought and paid for Clinton camp.

The fact that Mr. Caruso appears to have worked at PWC at a time when the mainstream media was desperately touting Crowdstrike's 'conclusions' about the Democrats supposedly being the victim of Russian government sponsored hackers should raise eyebrows in the national security community about the ongoing politicization/Democrat-water-carrying of the U.S. IC. So too, should Caruso's history of sociopathic if not borderline Sunni supremacist/jihadist sympathizing tweets which he laughably insists were the result of some GamerGate kids if not the Russians hacking his accounts. More recently, Caruso accused Wikileaks of fabricating portions of his own Huffington Post article while quoting it. You can't make this stuff up.

If former counterintelligence officers like John R. Schindler aka @20Committee who promote Mr. Caruso's 'work' for the Democrats on Twitter actually gave as much a damn about Hillary exposing highly classified data to foreign adversaries as they claim, they would condemn Caruso's lies that Hillary's emails from Sidney Blumenthal containing top secret NSA intercepts are a 'nothing burger'. It is a testament to Schindler's fanaticism and Cold War 2.0 tunnel vision that he pretends not to notice the Clinton camp's connections to ISIS sponsoring U.S. 'allies' like Saudi Arabia and Qatar, including longstanding Clinton aide Huma Abedin's Muslim Brotherhood parents. Or for that matter, CIA Director John Brennan's close relationship to the Saudi royals and whether that effects his cronies judgement about which KSA-backed Syrian rebels are 'moderate' while in practice, sending TOW missiles to jihadists the State Department admits are too intermingled with Jabhat al-Nusra AL-QAEDA's Syrian affiliate to enable the U.S. to bomb the latter.

Typical @20CON-mittee doublethink: if I say it's too late to stop Putin in Syria, then it's strategic reality. If YOU say it peasant, it's 'Kremlin propaganda'. Conspiracy theory for me but not for thee, because Russians and PhD. Tell me again WHY Donald Trump's son-in-law publishes the rants of this man in the NY Observer?

As for Caruso's bizarre jihadi friendly 'rafidah' rants, if retired Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn becomes the next director of National Intelligence under a President Donald J. Trump, then perhaps he should have any clearances he still has revoked. At any rate, the prospect of a WW3 demanding sociopath like Robert Caruso being a political appointee at a Clinton State Department or Pentagon should motivate all sane and competent military and intelligence professionals to vote against Hillary this November 8th.
