MAJOR SHIFT in Erdogan’s Relations with Imperialist US… and the Barzani Clan (yes, you read that right): Did He Sell Out to Greater Kurdistan?

by Scott Creighton

I don’t know what to think of this so I am going to put this info out there for you guys to consider and maybe you can let me know what you think.

I started my morning off in the usual way, skimming the Times, al Jazeera, the Post, HuffPuff, Fox “News”, Daily Blow… you know, the usual crap just to get a feel for the daily dose of excrement they are shoveling our way today, when I came across a story that made me stop and do a double-take:

Erdogan Aiding Coalition Partners in Cross-border Attack on “ISIS™” in Syria

What? I thought “ah, that’s just the Times doing their propaganda thing” until, I saw it again:

Turkey and U.S.-backed forces take on Islamic State border town in Syria

So I thought “oh, OK. The Times and the Post feeding off each others’ BS” so I decided to take a look at some Turkish papers in order to get some clarification:

LIVE: Turkish military, coalition forces launch ‘Euphrates Shield’ operation in Jarablus

There it is again. Now it has a name “Operation Euphrates Shield” but I dismissed it YET AGAIN because, AH… Hurriyet Daily is a Dogan Media Group paper, a Gulenist rag, so I figured I would check out the Daily Sabah and get the REAL SCOOP:

Wednesday’s anti-Daesh operation, called Euphrates Shield, aims to support U.S.-led coalition forces, strengthen Turkey’s border security by clearing away terrorist groups and maintain Syria’s territorial integrity.” Daily Sabah

Are you fucking kidding me? Recep Erdogan just survived a damn coup orchestrated from the Pentagon and US State Department in conjunction with the monied interests behind Fethullah Gülen and just recently he started bombing the CIA’s new darling freedom fighters in Syria… and now he’s teaming up with TEAM USA WORLD POLICE to literally invade Syria to stop the CIA’s “ISIS™”? The same “ISIS™” the coalition let leave Manbij a couple weeks ago so they could head north to this city?

Is that a joke?

But wait.. it gets worse. Much, much worse.

Clashes in Hasakah Leading to Kurdish-Arab War in Syria? (South Front video)

REBRANDING

Syrian War Report – August 22, 2016: Deep Crisis in Eastern Syria (South Front video)

by Scott Creighton

It would appear the recent Israeli bombing of several targets inside the Gaza Strip was provided a convenient pretext when an al Qaeda-linked Palestinian group fired a useless homemade bottle rocket toward Sderot. Turns out, this same group is fighting against the legitimate government of Syria on behalf of US and Israeli interests in the ongoing regime change operation in that country.

“The Israeli Air Force conducted up to 30 airstrikes over the Gaza Strip overnight on August 22 after a rocket struck the Israeli border-city of Sderot. A half dozen people were reportedly wounded in Gaza due to these the Israel Air Force’s air strikes. Reports say that Aknef Beit Al-Maqdis, a Palestinian militant group linked to Al-Qaeda, was responsible for the attack on Sderot. The organization responsible for the rocket attack in Sderot on Sunday was Aknef Beit Al-Maqdis, which is a Palestinian militant group with close ties to Al-Qaeda. Aknef Beit Al-Maqdis was recently involved in the Syrian war by attacking pro-government forces in the Yarmouk Camp District of southern Damascus.

No casualties were reported in the Israeli town.” South Front

Corrupting the Conversation: Challenging the Official Truth of ISIS™ (What Even Donald Trump Wont Tell You)

by Scott Creighton

In meditation, go deep in the heart. In dealing with others, be gentle and kind. In speech, be true”  Tao Te Ching

This morning I am watching and reading the corporate talking heads rage against Donald Trump’s comments about President Obama and Hillary Clinton being the “founders” of ISIS™.  They all say he has “corrupted the conversation” by straying outside the lines of acceptable discourse when it comes to the newest enemy of the state.

On Morning Joe, Scarborough even offered up some acceptable talking points in terms of what folks are allowed too say about the origins of ISIS™ and they were:

  1. Perhaps we shouldn’t have disbanded the Iraqi army after the invasion liberation
  2. Obama shouldn’t have pulled troops out of Iraq when the Iraqi leadership (Maliki) demanded we adhered to the agreement and our “national interests” demanded we stayed
  3. Obama should have bombed the elected government and civilian infrastructure in Syria sooner

This is the acceptable version of what the civil discourse in the country SHOULD be about the rise of what we call ISIS™ according to people paid to establish such perimeters. And they are livid when it comes to condemning a popular public figure when he dares to wander outside those boundaries, the boundaries which, as you can see, still serve our “national interests”. This is what you are ALLOWED to discuss on the news, at the office, at the bar… this is the official truth of ISIS™.  It is not the truth but it is the official truth.

As many of you know, the official version of the truth is often quite different from reality. And often times, the further these things are from each other, the more passionately the guardians of the official truth respond when it is challenged.

The Perversion of the unDNC Convention: Part 2 – Clinton’s New Dems Promoting a New McCarthyism (you can’t make this stuff up)

by Scott Creighton

(Part 1 of a two part article on the perversion that is the unDNC convention this week can be found here)

Da Ebil Ruskies are Colluding with Da Ebil Donald to Deny Saint Hillary the White House” Clinton campaign and their sock-puppets in the mass media.

Neoliberal Hillary Clinton, the nominee of my former party, has a long history of agitating against the popular and elected government of Vladimir Putin in an effort to force a regime change in the country that was once a neoliberal feeding frenzy under the drunken eye of Boris Yeltsin. That is an uncontroversial statement.

Lest anyone forget, Hillary Clinton did her level best to disrupt the Russian elections back in 2011 and when that failed, she attempted to foment a color revolution in the country by making a color revolution specialist the US Ambassador to Russia in 2012.

“Want to know why so many Russians hated Boris Nemtsov? Here’s a video of him paying a visit on U.S. Ambassador to Russia, Michael Anthony McFaul, just after McFaul took office back in 2012. It’s well understood here and in Russia, that McFaul’s task was to attempt to instigate a color revolution in Russia from day one.

Most Russia-watchers are diplomats, or specialists on security and arms control. Or Russian culture. I am neither. I can’t recite Pushkin by heart. I am a specialist in democracy, anti-dictatorial movements, and revolutions” (emphasis added). Michael Anthony McFaul

“(Hillary) Clinton noted that McFaul, who is a specialist in democratic transition – a Kommersant headline from January 11 touted him as a “color revolution specialist” – is uniquely suited for his new post, given Russia’s current climate.” Russia Profile

So in comes the color revolution specialist and one of the first to meet and greet the neoliberal scum, is Boris Nemtsov. Go figure.” Scott Creighton, March 1, 2015

(It should be noted that Boris Nemtsov was a pure neoliberal who wanted Hillary Clinton to help set him up as the next Boris Yeltsin in Russia and when that failed, they tried a mini-false flag operation, his shooting in early 2015, as a means to further destabilize Moscow. It failed.)

That is the backdrop for you informed voters out there as the likes of Joe Scarborough parrot the ridiculous and completely baseless claim that Vladimir Putin is behind the hacking of the unDNC emails and the leak of them prior to the convention this week.

The truth is, Hillary did it, not Vlad the Destroyer of Worlds. As if that really mattered.

Nafeez Ahmed is a Propagandist for Obama’s “Freedom Fighters”, the Kurds – Blames Erdogan for the CIA’s ISIS™

by Scott Creighton

At one point in his career, Nafeez Ahmed was praised by Gore Vidal. He argued that the CIA and various Washington insiders had their fingerprints all over 9/11 (even though he was basically a LIHOPer from day one) He was against the cancer of globalization and the scourge of the Endless War (OF) Terror being waged by the neocons in their pursuit of what Condi Rice once called the “New Middle East”

Now that he’s earned some street cred, Nafeez Ahmed is a sellout piece of shit just like the rest of ’em. Well, let’s be honest. Nafeez has been cashing in his “truther chips” for a while now, hasn’t he? For years he’s been propping up various psyops on behalf of those same CIA and neocon war-criminals he used to pretend to oppose. He even started his own little “think tank” so he could really cash in.

In a piece he scribbled together on his “crowdfunded” website called “Insurge Intelligence” Nafeez spends up the last of his left-cover credibility points when he claims “he has the documents” that prove President Erdogan of Turkey is personally running the CIA’s ISIS™ program.

“New evidence has emerged that the Turkish government under President Erdogan is covertly providing direct military, financial and logistical support of ISIS, even while claiming to fight the terror network.” Nafeez Ahmed

With “evidence” provided by our new “freedom fighters”, the Kurds, Ahmed is trying to lay blame for false flag ops like Paris, San Bernadino and Orlando squarely at the feet of Turkey’s elected President Erdogan and the implications for that are staggering in the wake of the failed US-backed coup. Nothing short of all out war against Turkey to “fight ISIS” is a distinct possibility. All out war in pursuit of Condi Rice’s “New Middle East”

And here we have an “alternative truth teller” laying the foundations for this new version of Dick Cheney’s WMDs story.

Gore Vidal is rolling in his grave. He should be digging himself out and printing a retraction for writing anything positive about this Mockingbird propagandist asset Nafeez Ahmed. Is he the new Judith Miller? You be the judge.

The Coalition Bombing of Civilians in Manbij Syria Was No Accident (and they weren’t targeting “ISIS”)

by Scott Creighton

“We have now have momentum in this fight and clear results on the ground… We must ensure that our partners on the ground (freedom fighter Kurds) have what they need to win the fight and then hold, rebuild, and govern their territory (“Rojava”),” Sec. of Defense Ash Carter, today

The coalition bombing in Syria this past week was not a one off mistake where they “mistook” women and children in a village for “ISIS”.

Given the fog of war and our complicit media servants here in the states, it’s understandable how more of our so-called “alternative anti-war” news outlets haven’t picked up on this yet, but in reality what happened appears to be a sustained attack on a civilian area carried out by US and French warplanes over a two day period.

To me it looks like they have given up on the “ISIS” pretense and are clearing out a problematic areas for the Kurds to claim and occupy as part of what they call Rojava, or “Western Kurdistan”, part of Greater Kurdistan (something we aren’t supposed to speak of)

First, let’s make what happened very clear: there were several attacks on this area over the course of two days during which as many as 200 civilians were killed, mostly women and children. It was a slaughter. You might even call it a “cleansing” of the area north of Manbij.
