US, Russian army chiefs staging face-off in Syria to thwart Trump-Putin summit

Defense and military chiefs in both Washington and Moscow are heaping obstacles in the path of Presidents Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin holding a one-on-one meeting.  Defense Secretary Mike Mattis and top US soldier, Gen. Joseph Dunford, are spearheading the anti-summit campaign in Washington and Defense Minister Gen. Sergei Shoigu in Moscow.  Our sources reveal that the generals are using US-Russian military confrontation in Syria to stage those obstacles. Working to bring a Trump-Putin summit to fruition in the face of this powerful campaign is Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, following on his success with the North Korean leader. Pompeo is playing ball with his opposite number in Moscow, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
Most of the military operations taking place in Syria these days are clandestine and so the Russian-US contest going forward there is mostly hidden from public scrutiny.
The coming issue of DEBKA Weekly 806 out on Friday June 22, opens an exclusive window on the moves in this contest and how Israel and Iran are involved.

    Iranian Pooh-Bahs should be concerned….

    This could set up for Iranian de-fang operations. Muslim flurry around Israel as seen in Psalm 83/Isaiah 17, bringing Israel to full Covenant boundaries? Peaceful era following; maybe not for long if the 7 fat cows/7 lean cow rehearsal is on stage. This is fantasy- Hmmm… the idea of a powerful Israel was fantasy in my early years…. The impossible dream is a happening thing.

      Exactly, Iran’s own funding of other Terrorism in Chechnya has not been forgotten, and Russians have long Memories. At the same time, a new Regime and Independent Persia would both benefit to modernizing, developing, and expanding Persia Oil Facilities, Oil Wells, and the Persian People Propensity to Science, Philosophy, and Refusing to live under and will end the Aaytollah’s Dark Ages since 1979.

    The planet is much better off if these two leaders are talking and at least he respects Putin which is more than any other world leader?

    When you don’t even know the first name of the United States’ Secretary of Defense–it is Hames, not Mike–its’ very difficult to believe ANYTHING else that you say.

    Just sayin’.

    Stop being a total looser “Jim Carroll” and posting negative and cruel comments. Put your money where your mouth is and go tell all the groups your demeaning thoughts about them in person. I got the feeling your too much of a coward to do so ):

    Hopefully this summit will never happen. Putin is a vicious polit-vampre.
