USA, Russia, Turkey, Israel, Iran: All Have a Plan B for Syria (Greater Kurdistan)

(and here is some more of the news of the balkinization plan for Syria and Turkey on route to Greater Kurdistan. It’s becoming mainstream news these days)

from nsnbc international

The establishment of a Kurdish State with breathing straw access to the Mediterranean. Map plottings by Major (r) Agha H. Amin.

a Pakistani general’s drawing of the plans for what I call Greater Kurdistan.

Washington, NATO and the Kurdish Corridor Plan

The United States and NATO have long considered the establishment of a so-called Kurdish Corridor (see map) as a prime objective. The plan aims at the fragmentation of Syria, Iraq, and ultimately northern Iran. Military and Security analysts, such as Pakistani Major (r) Agha H. Amin noted that the long-term objective is the establishment of a belt of low-intensity conflicts from the Mediterranean, and along Russia’s soft and resource-rich underbelly to Pakistan and beyond.

Hence the deployment of U.S. Special Forces to aid Syrian – Kurdish YPG / PYG fighters. The YPG / PYG is not (yet) officially calling for the establishment of a separate Kurdish State on Syrian territory. The Syrian government has, however, made considerable concessions to the YPG /PYG with regard to regional self-determination. The YPG / PYG is a traditional ally of the Turkish Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), which is designated as a terrorist organization by Turkey, and most NATO member States…

Russia’s Plan B and the PKK

Moscow, aware of NATO’s long-term strategy has supported the PKK since the mid-1980s. The PKK also enjoys the support of Venezuela’s governing PSUV and of Cuba. NATO is neither the first nor the only one to invent or use the principle of “Stay Behind” armies and proxies.

Strategists in Moscow have to consider the secular PKK as an asset that can provide a buffer against NATO’s expansion towards Russia in the region. Hence Moscow’s ardent criticism of Turkey’s crackdown against the PKK and the shelling of YPG / PYG positions in Syria. The YPG / PYG is in a position where it can freely negotiate with Damascus, with Moscow, and with Washington. Ironically, Turkey’s NATO partner Washington and Russia may both consider the fragmentation of Turkey as part of a viable Plan B…

  1. At the flop, bets are being made on Greater Kurdistan, but REAL money power is all-in come the turn for a Greater Israel…

  2. Not to be a troll, but what’s wrong with the “greater plan”. Imperialist countries decided against the will of the people to draw imaginary lines and it’s coming back to bite them in the ass.

  3. From the NSNBC story you’ve posted:

    The United States and NATO have long considered the establishment of a so-called Kurdish Corridor (see map) as a prime objective.

    Next sentence, same paragraph:

    The plan aims at the fragmentation of Syria, Iraq, and ultimately northern Iran. Military and Security analysts, such as Pakistani Major (r) Agha H. Amin noted that the long-term objective is the establishment of a belt of low-intensity conflicts from the Mediterranean, and along Russia’s soft and resource-rich underbelly to Pakistan and beyond.

    Notice the contradiction? Which of these two options (create Greater Kurdistan or weaken Russia) is the primary long term objective?

    Since making Kurdistan into a viable entity does exacly the opposite of what is promised by Russophobic necon twats, actually strengthening Russia’s position, one does not follow from the other.

    Hocus-pocus Greater Kurdistan, complete with invented motivational maps from Brookings, similar to maps for Ukraine-Khazaria or ‘Uighurstan’, are parlour tricks in the long-term project to weaken Russia and ensure trade moves across NATO controlled oceans instead of land based Silk Roads or pipelines through Asia.

    Think about it. Controlling the so-called Shia corridor, maybe two or three pipelines, is insignificant compared to controlling all global trade. Kurdistan is basically irrelevant, except of course, as a weapon of terror against satraps like Erdogan or erstwhile allies like Iran and Iraq.

    In the shorter term, Russia has a very strong interest in rhetorically supporting the Kurds, because it keeps their enemies at each others throats. Direct military support to PYD Kurds, though miscule compared to NATO, helps strengthen their client in Damascus.

    Why would Russia do otherwise?

    Repeating, Kurdistan already exists and Russia had nothing to do with creating it! On the other hand, in response to reality, Russia could make use of a semi-independent Kurdish Gangsterstan and would do so in FULL cooperation with Israel as necessary.

    So. What?

    Here’s another quote:

    Moscow, aware of NATO’s long-term strategy has supported the PKK since the mid-1980s. The PKK also enjoys the support of Venezuela’s governing PSUV and of Cuba.

    The combined support of Russia, Venezuela and Cuba, for the PKK/PYD, since the mid 80’s, does not amount to a hill of beans. Not even 1% of the total. Someone should tell Christoff (stay behind) Lehman the PSUV is no longer in charge of Venezuela. Did he forget? Even when it was governed by Bolivarian Socialists, Venezeula was not a significant geopolitical player anywhere on earth, least of all the MER. Cuba even less so.

    The PKK/PYD is a 100% owned and operated project of NATO. If the PYD cooperate with Russia it is because factions within NATO see it as advantageous, as does Russia. The PYD could not exist without NATO support and Russia could not pick up the slack if the PYD foolishly tried to abandon its Western partners. Getting even more real, 250 000 Syrian Kurds can not sustain a capable military force, not financially and certainly not in terms of manpower. It is an impossiblity.

    This is the reality of the Syrian-Kurd position vis a vis Russia and no amount of wishful thinking can change it. It is likely that more than 90% of the Syrian PYD is composed of fighters who are foreign to Syria.

    Russia has been acting on plan ‘A’ since day 1. It seeks to counteract the arc of instability. It will make deals with anyone to defend itself, including the PKK/PYD/NATO and Israel.

    This is how a weaker party, Russia, challenges the global Empire and humiliates it time and again.

    You and several other bloggers seem intent upon taking Putin down a notch or two, which is fine. Less acceptable is sewing division and uncertainty, enhancing or mimicking controlled opposition alt and msm Putin-bashing propaganda, on behalf of who I can’t say.

    For the record:

    It would be wonderful if everyone stopped imagining Putin will single handedly save the world. He won’t and he can’t. He works for Russia, no question, however, at some point you’ll have to accept that for the average Joe living in 5-eyes/ZIon, or Europe, nothing has been better for our common interests, contrary to those of the criminal elite, than a Russia that is STRONG.

    Here’s a useful motto:

    Strong Russia GOOD for YOU — unless you a JOO.

    Check your history, the pattern goes back to Napoleanic days and US Civil War, at least. When Russia is strong Western elites are hampered and the little guy benefits.

    And Putin is probably a Jew himself!

    How’s that for irony?

    I guess it takes one to know one. In any case I’d take a Russian Jew over a British Israelite any day.

    • Interesting, well-stated argument. It might get short-shrift here but thanks for posting it.

      James Corbett rightly refers to the 3D chess game being played out by the various players in this region and in general where apparent opponents in the 2D theater that we’re mainly focussed on are strangely cosy in other theaters. Simple explanations for the Middle East gamesmanship don’t account for the backstage cooperation that becomes evident in trade agreements or keeping quiet about who’s behind airliner crashes, etc.

      Hence, it is important to have open discussion and less defending of entrenched positions.

      • just keep watching John. when the new maps come out and the new royal family of Kurdistan is taking pictures with them, I’ll get you one and sign it for you. And yeah, you keep watching that neoliberal (L)ibertarian Corbett all you want.

      • and oh lookie. Russia signed onto the “toughest round of sanctions issued by the UNSC in 20 years” against the DPRK for launching a satellite into orbit and staging an underground nuclear test. Working alongside Samantha Power once again. Is that more 3d chess you think or quid pro-quo?

      • (so much for “short shrift”)

        Here’s another interesting story out of Tass. Two online bloggers are going to trial for making hurtful comments online regarding someone’s religious beliefs. The two “victims” refused to attend the trial but were forced to show up and will not attend anymore. The story is the guys said something like there is no God and made fun of someone’s belief in it. Those guys, the “victims”… went to the police?!? and now this trial is taking place which is supposedly the first time a trial of this kind has ever taken place in the country, but apparently someone wants it to happen bad enough to forcibly compel the “victims” to attend… at least once.

        Why do you think they want that on the books you think? Sounds like something we would do. Sounds like something France would do after Charlie Hebdo, doesn’t it? Very odd.

    • Looking at the grand game is interesting, and predicting it is not an exact science for any of us. One thing missing in your lengthy analysis is the fate of Syria and if Russia is an honest partner to Syria.

      People attempting to determine if Putin has been defending Syria or playing some phony role of protector have been waiting to see if he would sell out Syria or not. Clearly he has sold out Syria and Assad just like he sold out Libya.

      You start with the fundamental assumption in your analysis that Russia is opposed to the USA NATO block, and you go from there.
      Many people no longer believe that fundamental assumption is correct, and evidence shows that Putin is part of the NWO, and is no more opposed to the USA than Obama is to Bush. The myth of conflict is supported by both the corporate media who say Putin is an ebil commie and we need more bombs to fight Russia………and by the disinfo sites within alternative media who say Putin is a good man who is fighting the NWO with everything he has!

      The entire cold war was a con that allowed Russia and the USA to destroy and pilfer dozens of nations because they were allegedly fighting each other. When did that end? It did not end.
      Syria has been sold down the river, and the Putin apologists want us to just forget about Syria and move on to watching the grand 3-D chess master Putin work his magic in Kurdistan now.
