KASHMIR (Updated)
Today, 5 August 2019 has become a historic day in our history as something which could not be done in 70 years has taken shape now. Union Home minister Amit Shah has announced that Article 370 which grants special status to the state of Jammu and Kashmir will be scrapped. He also announced that Jammu and Kashmir will no longer be a state and it will be bifurcated into two Union Territories— Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh.  read more...
Is ours an ideal democracy!! Hardly so, it is far from being an ideal democracy; where there should be  two equal opponents, like Conservative and Labour party in Britain; like Republican and Democratic party in USA. As for India, for the two major parties here i.e. Congress and BJP there has never been a state of relative equilibrium. There was a time when Congress was all powerful for a long time, BJP had not come into existence then. BJP came into existence and gradually spread its wings and the status now of present election result on 23 May 2019 is that BJP alone bagged 303 seats and 353 seats along with its NDA Alliance. Congress on the other hand could muster only 52 seats; along with UPA, Congress got 91. Other parties won 98 seats. What to talk of equality, Congress party could not win even 55 seats which is the requisite 10 % to become the official opposition. read more...

Egypt has been in news very prominently ever since Gen Sissi deposed Morsi and took strong action against Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic fundamentalists just as successive army dictators of Egypt had been doing since the days of Gen.Nasser after driving out King Farouk in 1952. For nearly two years a civil war has been going on in Syria between the rule of Assad, the Alawite leader, and the Sunni opponents of his. It took a definite hostile turn during and after what was called the Arab Spring in 2011.

Eclipsing Egypt , Syria suddenly became the focus of international news when it was reported that Assad’s forces had used some chemical weapons against the rebels which gives a chance to USA and UK to intervene , first through UN approval and if it does not succeed, directly as Bush and Blair had done in the case of Iraq after 2001. It then is the Bush moment of President Obama.

What are the possibilities now in Syria of USA intervening and Obama, experiencing a Bush moment in his presidency in the second term, getting involved in a war in west Asia particularly in Syria?

 I had anticipated this astrologically two years ago when I wrote the following:
KN RAO 30 January 2011, 1:37 PM
Changes adverse to the interest of USA and Israel will have all the provocative ingredients of a major war in that region after Rahu moves into Vrischika and later Saturn and Rahu join in Tula. World awaits with anxious and abated breath these developments. That is the time when India will find herself in the grip of a religious frenzy, communal in tone and violent in expression and Pakistan will undergo a great change.
For Obama administration, it is an ordeal like 1979 when backing Shah of Iran, it lost the sympathy of the followers of Ayatollah Khomeini and Iran continues to be its enemy till now. Yet, the rise of Islamic forces is what Israel and USA fear now.

First look at the dilemma USA faces in the Syrian crisis and the likely decision to intervene as seen astrologically.

1) US intervention to settle the Syrian crisis in one way or the other will harm USA. If Assad wins the Shia power in west Asia will get consolidated and become powerful which neither USA nor Israel wants. It will annoy the biggest US ally Saudi Arabia and other friendly Sunni powers. If the rebels win Al Qaida and Taliban like Salafists will become powerful, free from this domestic conflict and would start another wave of attacks on Europe and America and Americans and create lot of trouble for Russia in Chechnya and Dagestan. If neither side wins and the war prolongs, they will be killing each other and the war will prolong which suits both USA and Israel. In such a situation they will be killing each other with no decisive victory for either side. Considering this it will be better for USA to supply arms to the rebels to keep fighting without winning or losing totally and when it finds that rebels are becoming powerful weaken them by stopping supply of weapons. The well-known British imperial mischief of divide et empera is in action now.

b) Obama had inherited two costly wars from Bush which caused economic distress to USA and much of the attention of Obama had to be devoted to the domestic situation which has improved now. Can he commit the same mistake and involve war weary America again in a war in west Asia?

c) Since against strong dissent of Russia and other powers a UN intervention is not likely, it is under the pretext of humanitarian grounds under international law that USA, UK and France, the known friends that are likely to intervene in Syria.

But a more disturbing news is that it was a preplanned intrigue and what is happening now is the result of it all. “In an interview with the French TV station LCP, former French minister for Foreign Affairs Roland Dumas said "I’m going to tell you something. I was in England two years before the violence in Syria on other business. I met with top British officials, who confessed to me that they were preparing something in Syria.

In different horoscopes

The likely outcome of it all can be seen in different horoscopes.

USA: It is the mahadasha of Mars in the eleventh house aspecting the sixth house of territorial attacks; the antardasha of Jupiter conjoined with Mars and aspected by Saturn the seventh lord of war, aspecting the seventh house and the pratyantara dasha of Ketu in the sixth house of territorial attack up to 13 September by which time, USA is likely to take the decision to attack Syria.

USA Horoscope Journal of AstrologyLagna 29-59’, Sun 22-19’, Moon 02-19’, Mars 00-27’, Mercury(R) 03-35’, Jupiter 15-08’, Venus 12-02’, Saturn 24-04’, Rahu 16-52’, Ketu 16-52’

In Chara dasha it is the mahadasha of Dhanu the sign of aggression from where in the seventh house there are so many planets showing US aggression. The antardasha if of Karka aspected by Moon, the gnathikaraka showing clear intention of attack and the pratyantara dasha will be of Kumbha between 3rd and 18 September 2013 when the decision to attack Syria will be finalized.

Syria: The horoscope of Syria being used here is that of the coup of 13 November 1970 when through a coup the father of Bashar al-Assad had captured power. Here in the Vimshottari mahadasha the dasha chiddra of Rahu is reached with the antardasha of Mars ending on 23 June 2014. The chemical attack took place in the month of August 2013 after the antardasha of Mars had started in June of this year. Mars in the twelfth house clearly shows the conspiracy hatched in a foreign country to initiate it all against Syria. As the dasha begins to end the regime of Bashar al-Assad will begin to struggle to hold on to power and may lead to serious internal strife leading to the partitioning of the country.

Syria is disintegrating as a nation state. The civil war in Syria cannot end soon and the interest of western powers and Israel is to see the Muslim states of west Asia disintegrate along ethnic and religious lines into mini states so that they do not constitute any danger to Israel and to the world in general particularly in these days when the Arab Spring actually became an Islamic Spring.

The Sykes-Picot Agreement of 1916 was the western imperial plan to keep west Asian Islamic states weak, under control and disintegrated. Now the same agreement is being implemented secretly though that agreement is dead. It is now an unofficial Sykes-Picot agreement of the twenty first century being implemented by USA in cooperation with UK and France and Israel. It then should be clear that as soon as the Rahu dasha begins to end, the aim of seeing a disintegrated and weak Syria will suit all western powers. Assad has few months or years alone now left in power. Saudi Arabia and Iran alone have been safe so far and it will have to be seen how long.

The Redline: Barack Obama had talked of the redline when it came to the use of chemical weapons, regarded as a weapon of mass destruction as Saddam Hussein is said to have used against Kurds in Iraq. Now that redline is reached and USA has no choice except to attack without committing itself to a costly war and without allowing it to become an economic disaster as Bush had done in the case of Afghanistan and Iraq. Yet it is a decision he has to take, he will take and with Mars in Karka aspecting Saturn and Rahu in Tula, a war is inevitable involving USA. The decision not to commit ground troops but do only aerial attacks will suit USA, UK and France at the moment much to the glee of Israel.

Russia: In its present period of Rahu Saturn with Saturn aspecting the seventh house in its horoscope of 12 June 1990 with Kanya lagna, Russia will continue its support to Assad as it has a bigger stake in saving this regime and to prevent the takeover by the rebels , consisting of Al Qaida, and other extremist groups like Salafis. Russia has to prevent the takeover by Al Qaida to prevent the spread of this terror to Chechnya, Dagestan and Russia.

China too is in favor of Assad and therefore it is like a revival of the cold war days with Russia and China one side and USA, UK and France on the other side. Sandwiched between them is Syria and pulling strings from behind is Israel with Iran fully supporting Assad. Finally it is a major war between Shias and Sunnis with Russia and China siding Syria and USA wanting, like Israel, the west Asian states to disintegrate and become weaker for Israel to be safe for years and years.

All this we will begin to witness in the month of September as Mars moves closer the middle of Karka and aspects Saturn and Rahu degree to degree.
