Skripal affair: Real reason is capture of 200 SAS soldiers in Ghouta

According to Chinese information, British and American forces have been destroyed on a large scale in the Ghouta region, with the 22nd regiment of the British special forces, the SAS, in tatters.

    Those SAS soldiers who had survived the pinpoint Russian bombing, have had to flee on buses in disguise. This is actually the real reason for the Skripal affair and the chemical weapons false flag, a Russian analyst believes.

    European officials have at least partly confirmed the presence of British citizens among those in East Ghouta.

    An assessment of the situation in East Ghouta, Syria, was made by a leading Russian analyst in Middle Eastern affairs. In particular, a Chinese military specialists’ report was examined by the expert.

    China is very closely following everything that is happening in Syria. There are regular reports and expert assessments by Chinese specialists closely following the course of the anti-terrorist operation.

    The Chinese have been examining the actions of, in particular, the Russian military and the US-led coalition, noting the shortcomings and successes of the parties involved.

    Evgeniy Yanovich Satanovskiy, a Russian orientalist and economist, is one of the leading experts in the field of politics and economics, analysing countries of the Near and Middle East, including Israel.

    One of the most famous and popular Russian specialists, Satanovskiy is a regular participant on Russian radio and TV programmes, often with an accurate and in-depth assessment of the situation in the Middle East, in particular, in Syria.

    Satanovskiy has studied the situation in East Ghouta, Syria, based on recent material gathered by Chinese analysts and translated into Russian by the Russian Sinologist Maksim Kazanin.

    Kazanin himself is a famous Russian Sinologist, and author of studies on China for Russian mass media.

    According to the analyst, the UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) used in the area to attack Russian bases had Chinese processors and the Chinese could get hold of all the navigational data.

    The Americans were eager to get rid of the Russian presence since the Russians were threatening to stop the advances and attacks of “moderate rebels”. The rebels were surrounded by highly-trained US and British military “advisors”, says Satanovskiy and protected by at least 200 Tomahawks aimed at Russian installations.

    When Valeriy Gerasimov, Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, warned the US that if there were a threat to the lives of Russian servicemen in Syria, then Russia would shoot down both American missiles and carriers, he was responding to this particular state of affairs.

    Americans did not expect the pilots of the Russian SU-34 or SU-27SMZ to execute 30 sorties per day and meticulously wipe out all British and US military instructors. This convinced tens of thousands of rebels to end their struggle.

    On March 17, 2018, some 200 US special-forces operators were killed, according to Chinese intelligence. The situation in East Ghouta was different from Aleppo in that Aleppo “was like a pudding stuffed with raisins” while in Ghouta a large group of British instructors were also caught trying to escape the Russian encirclement “dressed as women”.

    Satanovskiy noted that the British SAS soldiers often disguised themselves as women in Afghanistan too. Some 200 were caught by Russian military police trying to flee Ghouta. The British government opened diplomatic channels to Moscow right away in order to reach an agreement and at the same time launched the Skripal affair when the US effort to save them failed.

      If one takes this report at face value, it shows the astounding ability the main stream media has to insulate the world from the truth.

      • Willem

        What I do not understand is why would the Russians keep quiet on this?

        • Otto

          Strange as it may seem, Russia seems to be the more reasonable one in international politics at the moment. I get the impression that Russia is doing more to prevent war than instigate it.
          Perhaps Putin feels that exposing the British and Americans too far, would force them into war.

          • Willem

            I fully agree that Putin is doing all he can to prevent the Syrian war from escalating.
            I think it is for the same reason that Russia has twice up to now publicly announced a (partial) withdrawal from Syria. It is like saying to the West “Look, we are leaving, you can leave now too (and save face)..”.

            • Otto

              And yet the West – or manipulating elements in the West – seem determined to pit Russia against the West.
              To be honest, I believe that Russia is the more traditional Western society than Britain, the USA, and Western Europe at present.

          • regolo gellini

            Putin is the best chess player in the world (understand chess for foreign policy) and knows what to do . I trust him !

        • Russians killed 200 Yanks and Syrians captured 200 Brits.
          Where do think the required political posturing would lead if those politicos were forced to face their publics with that?

    • johnsang

      If true, Russia may want to hold the captives to trade later on for something of value.

    • colin adese

      I can testify to the British being brill @ drag. The SAS probably got Julian Clary to give them the once over. LoL

    • Mick McNulty

      Britain’s special forces have been tainted by their role in US-engineered wars since 1991. Some of them will have known their actions were not in our name–most of us, anyway–but they were given jobs to do. Some of the more gung-ho types will have known and not cared. Their mystique is lost. They became black knights.

      And expecting a few hundred to foil Russia’s army in Syria was asking for capture. They’re not supermen.

    • Julian Donohoe

      Is this article serious? Where are the sources other than an academic?
      I fully support Russia’s role in Syria and do not desire to see the anti-Assad coalition win, but this article smells of wishful thinking.
