In yet another “coincidence” that many would suggest is an example of the direct control over international terror networks by NATO and the U.S., only days after U.S. Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter warned Russia that it would see reprisal terror attacks within its borders as a result of the Russian intervention in Syria, Russian authorities have announced the disruption of a plot to conduct bombings of Russian railway systems by jihadist terrorists.
Last Thursday, in a meeting with NATO Defense Ministers in Brussels, Carter stated that “They have initiated a joint ground offensive with the Syrian regime, shattering the facade that they are there to fight Isil [Isis]. This will have consequences for Russia itself, which is rightly fearful of attacks. In coming days, the Russians will begin to suffer from casualties.”
While many may have interpreted Carter’s words as referring to the Syrian battleground and the resistance the Russians may face there, others are convinced that Carter’s statement was much broader, perhaps referring to “reprisal attacks” on Russian soil.
Only four days after his statement, Russian police announced that they had foiled a terrorist plot aimed at the destruction and bombing of Russia’s public transport system. The terrorists involved in the plot allegedly received training in ISIS training camps located in Syria and were associated with the ISIS organization.
As the Guardian reported on October 12,
Information about the alleged terrorists remained murky on Monday evening. An official statement from the FSB said only that a raid had taken place on an apartment where between six and 11 people lived, “some of whom have been through combat training in Islamic State camps in Syria.” The FSB said they were all Russian citizens.
It was unclear if any of the group were still at large. Those arrested could face up to 20 years in prison.
Television footage of the police raid showed police carrying sacks out of the building, including a washing machine. The FSB said it seized 5kg of explosives that had been prepared and were ready to use, complete with a phone-activated detonator.
Previously, terrorists from the North Caucasus have targetted the metro system, a train station and an airport in the capital, but Moscow has not seen a major attack for nearly five years, since a suicide bomber killed 37 people at Domodedovo Airport in 2011.
The agency said the men had arrived in Russia long before Moscow’s bombing campaign in Syria, which some have speculated could increase the terrorism threat inside Russia.
It is thus a very interesting coincidence that, so soon after Carter’s remarks, Russia would indeed face “reprisal attacks” within its own borders.
It is also interesting to note that Carter would suggest that facing “reprisal attacks” from ISIS would be reason to abstain from fighting the terror organization, since his argument is precisely the opposite when arguing for other NATO countries to join in the phony bombing campaign in Syria and Iraq.
It is widely known amongst informed circles that the United States and NATO intelligence along with the GCC and Israel control and maintain terrorist networks across the globe, including in and surrounding Russia. This fact alone is a partial reason that Russia has become involved in Syria to begin with in order to prevent terror attacks and NATO-backed terrorist proxies from marching on Moscow in the same way they did on Tripoli and Damascus.
The U.S. would be wise to back off of its attempt to provoke and break up Russia while there is still a chance at war avoidance. The dangerous game being played by Washington and NATO is one that could very well end up engulfing the world.
