Brendon O'Connell - Syria, Russia & Iran are Not the "Good Guys"

January 13, 2018


Makow to O'Connell: "I'm having trouble with your thesis

that Netanyahu and Putin are in bed together. Seems to me 

Israel was not pleased with Putin saving Syria and destroying ISIS." 

This is Brendon's reply. I'm not buying it but I

post it in the interest of provoking discussion. 

By Brendon O'Connell


Syria "saved"? 

Its been split into three - Southern Syria, Damascus (semi-central, the only place Assad rules and Russian bases are), and the Kurds in the north and northeast, busy carving out their own country and doing deals with Russian Jewish Oligarch-run (and best mate of Putins) Igor Sechen and Rosneft for oil and gas. The Kurds are in bed with Netanyahu. 

Syria is not saved, the war rages on. Russia has not "left" and is as busy as ever. ISIS? Who or what is ISIS? Syria is %87 Sunni with a tiny Allowite (semi-Shia) elite who run the place. Every Sunni with a (legitimate) gripe against Assad is suddenly "ISIS". Like every Pashtun elder with an AK in Afghanistan pissed off at coalition bombing his kids is a "Taliban". 


Assad is a dictator with a Shah like torture apparatus - though nowhere near as bad as his father. His security services were trained by the Soviets and currently the new Soviet Union 2.0. Most people do not even know the Soviets have been in Syria since the early 1950's and never left. Assad's father was brutal. His son is a trained eye surgeon and the MSM narrative is he never wanted power, but he has inherited the brutal state apparatus and it goes on regardless. 

Iran is far less brutal and at least Saddam provided a high standard of living while being a dictator himself. You could even criticise Saddam to a point - speak to people from Lebanon and Syria about what happens if you open your mouth in Syria? You WILL lose your fingernails. And then let's not forget the massive interference in Lebanon that eventually the Lebanese took to the streets to end. Endless assassinations by Syria and gross interference in Lebanese politics.

The original 2008 "uprising" in the south of Syria was legitimate. No one denies that Assad's security services overreacted to a local phenomenon. Syrians are not happy with Assad and the fact they earn $200 a month in Syria while they earn $1000 a month digging a ditch in Lebanon and $4000 a month in Saudi or the Gulf States. 


Syria lives on Lebanese and Gulf State money. Iran's empire building in the Middle East is to ultimately blame for Syria as we see it. Sunnis are in open revolt at what they see as the invasion of Iran and its Shia militias and Hezbollah. The Hadith on the Dajjal (anti-Christ) and "70,000 Jews from Isfahan (Iran)," has Sunnis on edge whether you choose to beleive it or not. 

They told me straight to my face in Iran they were building the Persian Empire - this is hardly a state secret in the Middle East. I was to work with The Persian Gulf Studies Center. Apparently my job was to attack Saudi and the Gulf States all day and I was not going to do it. As for sanctions on Iran? There are ZERO sanctions of consequence on Iran Henry. There are nuisance financial restrictions. We know what happens to countries with "sanctions" - real ones. Look at Iraq. People need to ask some very simple questions and draw some conclusions - the rhetoric on the MSM and alt media does not match what is on the ground in Iran.

Iran is giving Israel what it needs - the excuse to push all the way to the west bank of the Euphrates. Netanyahu's biggest problem is left wing Jews in America, not Iran and Hezbollah. They are a blessing and an excuse to build Israel's military capacity and terrorize the local Jewish population into coherent submission to state power.

 Do you know how divided they are in Israel Henry? War is what Netanyahu and Israel's military-industrial establishment need right now - preferably an attack by Hezbollah on their ammonia storage tanks. The average Jew in Israel has little clue that the current economic high tech boom is ALL about Israel's military and the threat of war. The Talpiot Program and Israel's "survival" is what keeps the fake colonial state alive - nothing else.


We have online Henry an "alt-media" in love with Iran and Russia which has zero credibility in the real world. It is not about taking sides - it's about being balanced and observing what is in front of your eyes. By all means criticise Saudi. But it's time for some balance in the narrative which seeks to paint Putin and Rouhani as saviours of the Middle East when they are in fact opportunistic gangsters with close ties to Swiss and German banking and the City of London. 


Lets not forget Rouhani and his six years in Scotland, hanging with Jack Straw and no doubt Lord Levy. And the Foreign Minister Zarif? Twenty years in the Uninted States. 

Just for the record, I absolutely loved my time in Iran and I loved the people I met. There is no 'one' unified political view in Iran, it is as varied as the United States. The current political climate simply did not match my expectations at the top, and I saw and heard things that were not acceptable to me. But it gave me insights into the Rouhani governments foreign policy and I was not going to be involved in it. In particular, the bragging I heard about "taking back the Stan's" (Turkmenistan/Afghanistan etc), and the extreme hatred I saw expressed at Saudi over and above any criticism of Israel. No wonder Netanyahu has a field day.

I have also had much to do with the Russian Orthodox Church and have friends who travel to Russia frequently and speak the language fluently - I have no inherent gripe against Russians - quite the contrary. If I sound angry, it's the lack of objectivity accross the board on the issues that face us and the blatant taking sides in the face of "bad behaviour" by all parties - including Iran and Russia. If the purpose is peace in the Middle East and the muzzling of the mad dog Netanyahu and the chance for negotiations between Israeli and Palestinian - then worshipping Russia and Iran will not help.


Netanyahu can "state" all he likes that he is unhappy about Putin being in Syria and the "end" of ISIS. I just watch the contracts POUR out between Israel and Russia. When everyone said the war was over in May/June 2017, I urged caution publicly and I stated it was far from over. I was right and I will be right again when Israel unleashes all it has on the Gaza Strip, southern Lebanon and on into Syria. Putin will do...nothing. Wring his hands, call for peace. And the lemmings online will still support him like they support Trump. Only a miracle can save the Gaza Strip and West Bank - but then, I beleive in miracles.

The break up of the Middle East continues. Israel NEEDS the US in the Middle East to assist in the fulfillment of The Oded Yinon Plan. Russia's "appearance" has assured Pentagon approval for more money pumped into the region while under the Obama administration they were pulling back. 

Previously, in 2014, former head of the Shin Bet (and Syrian Jew Yisrael Hasoon) warned Europe if they abandoned Israel they would have Jihadi's in their beds and schools - and so it was. Recently, Netanyahu bragged to Europe that Israel had foiled ISIS plans to bring down aircraft in Europe. If you've studied Netanyahu, you know that was a threat, not a bragging point. Watch out Europe. Maybe a few of their aircraft will disappear over Sweden like a Malaysian airliner disappears with no trace?

The Russian and American military-industrial complex is over the moon with the Syria "saved" situation. Just as Reagan and his M.I Complex buddies were overjoyed at the Soviet presence in Central and South America - though not Congress refusing funding to "fight" the Communists. The problem then, as it is now, is left-wing Jews complaining about dead bodies. They are 'used' at the top as you know and write about frequently. The key is always the dialectic - two opposing forces. There are no "left wing Jews" in Russia and Jewish online Journals even brag Putin will give them a "free'er hand" in the Occupied Territories.

I make simple observations. I talk to Iranians, Lebanese and Iraqis who actually live in the region. I look at both sides. I was warned about Iran before I ever left but I stated to those people that nothing was perfect and that they were paralyzed by 'distant analysis'. I had no idea the frothing at the mouth HATRED of Iranians for Saudi and the Gulf States was so strong - and vice versa. There is more respect for Israel in Iran than Arabs - I'm not joking. 

There is a nasty streak of 'specific' Iranian Aryan exceptionalism that mirrors the Jewish infection and of course, the latent German. The British too I might add so perhaps the point is lost in the "me too, I'm special" stakes world wide. Hitler is worshiped in Iran, as is Germany. Ask someone who's been there. Its not that Iranians want a blood thirsty end to "The Jews" - they just don't believe the official narrative about Hitler and his policies and the German and Swiss banks are sooooooo helpful ;-) You have to go there Henry. People told me about this, I brushed it off. I was made to feel uncomfortable the moment I got there. Politically that is - but as a tourist, I loved it. Iranians of a differing political persuasion assure me I was with "the wrong crowd". I guess so. Again, there is no one unified political view in Iran. Generalizations can be a curse. But let us stimulate a break in the common discourse.


The history of co-operation between Iran and Israel during the Iran/Iraq war is well documented and not in dispute. When it suited Iran, doing deals with Israel was just fine to counter Iraq and Arab nationalism - especially a unified Arab Middle East. That policy continues to this day. Israel is happy - Arabs killing Arabs. And Iran is happy - Arabs killing Arabs. This simple fact of 'real politic' seems to escape the online alt media who cant wait to laud Iran as a deliverer of the Palestinian people when I contend the current leadership of Iran are nothing more than crass oppurtunistic gangsters picking the flesh off the carcass of Iraq and Syria with a nod of approval from the Swiss and German banking houses that are funnelling billions in cash and Russian technology to them. They dont call it "The Great Game" and "The Grand Chessboard" for nothing.

Irans role in this ongoing tragedy is being totally ignored while Saudi and the Gulf States along with Turkey are hauled over the coals in an over simplified analysis of the very real fears of Israel/Iran hegemony in the region and the perfectly appropriate funding of legitimate Sunni militias to counter Iranian domination of the region - with an icing of ISIS - Israeli Military Intelligence controlled. Everyone hates the Saudis for (apparently) being to close to Israel and the US. Well, why not put some effort into understanding the extremely close ties of the protege of Rasfanjani (the Iranian revolutionary billionaire Swiss money bag man) - current president Rouhani, and the UK and Swiss and German banks and the Israeli/Iranian mutual benefit in a Middle East on fire, and an end to pan Arab nationalism and a unified fist against Israel.



The fog of war was never truer than right now. People should watch the excellent documentary by Adam Curtis, "Hypernormalization" which describes the deliberate and rampant psychological warfare being played against us - Israeli's, Palestinains, Iranians and Eskimos alike. From killer bees to super volcanoes to Planet X to Islamic terrorism to high cholesterol and trangender rights to pretend you have a cervix and demand a pap smear - we are enmeshed in a web of lies and deciet that is a scientific process like never before. Propaganda is five layers deep. Just when you think you understand the game, another variable pops up. You either drop out of the game and watch Game of Thrones, or, you adopt an over simplied approach and cozy up to a state approved narrative pretending to be alt media grass roots analysis. And who wants to lose the donations by taking an unpopular stand?

Scruples - the game of moral dillemas

Sid Green said (January 15, 2018):

I think Brendon O'Connell is hilarious and awesome. As a Jew, I know he's not an antisemite just a wild Australian
who is willing to suffer physically for his beliefs!! LOL@ his antics!! You have to admire a man like that even if he may be a fool in putting himself in danger.
His latest article seemed to also be very mature and starting to integrate his worldview based on his travels. You can't travel the world and not see
that it is the same shit everywhere.

I appreciated his insight that principled Jews are Netanyahu's main nemesis. Lately, many Jews who have expressed support for traditional morality (not killing people left and right) have been facing inquisitions in good old Ben Gurion (even when their last names are Ben Gurion). What do you think about the public's mindset? Aren't they so invested in not knowing the truth that they will never let themselves see it?

but then again why are people like us willing to look at it then? Do you think the brainwashing could simply be too thick to get thru to some people?

Tim Fitzpatrick said (January 14, 2018):

As a rebuttal to my friend Jude Duffy and others, Brendon O'Connell is a little rough around the edges; he, himself, admits this. And who isn't? Has he made mistakes? Of course. Again, he admits his faults—publicly, no less. But the man has vision and intuition—far more so than most of the visible patriot characters today.

He is an invaluable asset to Christ's army of truth tellers. I would rather have a Brendon O'Connell—imperfect and all, than have no Brendon O'Connell at all. He is spot on about Trump and Putin (that they are false opposition),
and there is definitely something to his intuition on Syria and Iran.

I have known about and conversed with Brendon since long before is initial incarceration in Australia (before he became well known in patriot circles). He was skillful even back then. He sees the bigger picture with geo-political dialectics—something which is greatly lacking among patriots. His interpretive skills are unmatched—other than by maybe someone like the late Michael Collins Piper—another gifted truth teller.

I have spent so much time trying to get people to see the bigger picture, because, let's face it, most people are diverted and distracted, especially among the patriot movement and especially in this post-truth, fake news era. It's very frustrating. I see O'Connell trying to do the same thing and getting needlessly criticized for doing so.

I stand by him.

Tony B said (January 14, 2018):

Must agree with every word of Jude Duffy, Brendon seems without sane balance.

Moreover, even if he was correct, SO WHAT?

When did the Middle East become the problem of the "west?" If we want their oil it is our prerogative to buy it at an agreed price, but their politics, their culture, their problems are THEIR business, just as ours are our business. We can have our opinions about them but it is not for us to meddle with them. Rothschild cabal generated intrusions, one country into the business of another country is behind all the unrest in the world. It is the exact reason why the western created upheavals in the Middle East are now spreading to the Rothschild west that caused them, part of the cabal's agenda, not a separate phenomenon.

AZ said (January 13, 2018):

Thanks for this splendid article about Syria, Russia and Iran. It confirms my view on the geopolitical game as a mind game to be played forever, to obscure our real perception of the world we are living in. Nothing seems like it is and nothing is like it seems.

From a higher point of view, all world events are working towards that one goal of deceiving our own perception of the truth. Taking sides brings us farther away from that truth. The whole geopolitical circus is meant to be a distraction, to keep the dialectical principle of enemies going on forever.

The ones who look behind the whole masquerade of outer appearances know this. The ultimate goal for those psychopathic powerbrokers is to get hold of all the minds and souls of all humans on this planet. It is a spiritual warfare that´s going on this planet. We only can stop it when we become aware of the mind games that are being played with us. Let's go for that.

No one is a good guy. Neither Russia or England and ALL THEIR ALLIES. I don't view Israel as good either, but I think Brendon is wrong when he states that Israel is planning to expand its borders in blitz type attacks. What is "Land for Peace" all about then? I don't buy that part about Israel wanting to pounce. The globalists want "Land for Peace" to go forward and to make Jerusalem an international city where a world religion will exist. Finally Bibi is mostly a CFR asset as Barry Chamish indicated:

Assad might be a bad dictator, but he does protect minorities against the Sunni state-sponsored ISIS among others, but as I said earlier no one is a good guy.

SP said (January 13, 2018):

Brendon raised very good points there. It’s very true that there is a massive pro-Russia/Iran/China bias in the alt media in the West. There are hardly any negative articles you can read, but plenty about the West. This is very disturbing as the leaders of these countries have their own network of profiteering gangsters with hideous agendas.

In Germany, we have a guy who talks a lot about this Russia bias. He is one of two I know. I like him because he actually looks at the real underlying power structure(s), i.e. the secret societies, elite think tanks, etc. Once a friend of mine commented on a popular alt media Youtube channel about the blatant Russia propaganda and was instantly blocked by the operator. So much for free speech advocacy... Sometimes I think these people are getting paid by Russia.

I can also look at different subjects (education, wealth, health care, etc) and see that not all is as rosy there as people like to portray. The biggest problem is that people have never visited any of the places, but have a lot of opinions based on articles. For example, I have been to Russia about 10 yrs ago and the people were extremely friendly. I am sure it will be like this in every other country. The place, on the other hand, looked pretty run down though, like they still lived in the Soviet Union. You wouldn’t think that if you read alt media where Russia appears like heaven on earth. I also met a lot of Russians in the US who were more than happy to live there than in Russia, even to this day.

Also, common sense seems to evade people a lot of times. Every player in crises has some underlying cooperation or dirty deals going on. I can think of plenty in regards to different conflicts. Just to name a few: Russia allowing the influx of their home-grown terrorists into Syria, Syrian government having secret deals with ISIS at certain stages of the conflict, Africa colonialization - China’s massive exploitation of Africa (this one is very disturbing, especially the environmental catastrophe), Iran’s exploitation of Afghans to use as militias in Syria

I mean the list goes on and on. So well said Brendon for pointing this out and bringing some balance back.

Jude Duffy said (January 13, 2018):

Ever since I saw the letter Brendon O'Connell wrote to the Australian authorities, making all sorts of unhinged threats - a letter he proudly advertised himself by the way - I've had cause to doubt this guy's judgment - to put it very politely.

This article only confirms my worst suspicions. I can't go through all the points he makes that I believe are completely off-base, so I'll take just one: The idea that Israel feels threatened by "American left-wing Jews" is utterly baffling. To whom is he even referring here?

Many American Jews, to their great credit, opposed the Iraq War - but the left-wing Democrat Jewish leadership supported it wholeheartedly. It's a huge myth that the driving force for that war was Republican Neocons alone: The Clintons, the BBC, the New York Times, the ADL and the Hollywood elite all promoted it, as they promoted the attacks on Libya, former Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Syria, etc.

Even Bernie Sanders supported most of these adventures on behalf of Greater Israel. Sarah Silverman and other lefty showbiz shills didn't let any scruples over "dead bodies" get in the way of endorsing the warmonger Hillary. Thomas Friedman of the New York Times has even openly advocated the US arming Isis, in order to take down Syria and Hezbollah.

By the way, O'Connell says he loved the Iranians when he stayed in their country - unless my memory is playing tricks, that's not what I remember him writing while he was there.
