So Much Freedom to Spread: I Can’t Believe It’s Not War Crimes!

by Randy Shields, CounterPunch June 30, 2017

… The real action in Syria has never been ISIS or the “Free Syrian Army” — these are the two stalking horse CIA proxies for the Greater Kurdistan project which would border four countries that American and Israel wish to balkanize: Iraq, Iran, Syria and Turkey. We in the West have been well-prepared for many years about the gay-positive and woman-liberating peaceable Kurds. Less well known is their ethnic cleansing of Sunni Arabs in the territories that they conquer, including threats, intimidation, murder, looting and the burning down of houses, partying like it’s 1948 Palestine. Turkey has been beautifully demonized — so easy to do with Gollum leading it — and any terrorism committed against it by Kurdish groups is either disputed, minimized or not recognized at all by the mainstream media. The Kurds need to reconcile with all governments in the region because they are fast approaching their insane umpteenth betrayal by the United States. And some Kurdish leaders are now turning against the partitioning of Syria.

Assad said he would take back every inch of Syria for a very good reason: Syria, Iran, Hezbollah, Iraq and Turkey understand that if Syria is partitioned there will be American military bases in a Kurdistan or a Wahhabistan or both. And these bases will be used as terrorist havens to fuck over the people in the region every day of their lives for the benefit of the US and Israel. The Syrian people haven’t fought and died for that abomination to triumph. The one thing the destruction of Iraq, Libya and Syria have demonstrated is that, no matter how lousy the present is, neocon “dreams” can make the future infinitely worse…

The Greater Kurdistan Project and the G20 Summit: Now is the Winter of Their Discontent (AE video)

The Greater Kurdistan Project and the G20 Summit: Now is the Winter of Their Discontent

by Scott Creighton

While discussions are being held inside the G20 Summit in Hamburg, outside Kurds are taking part in massive demonstrations. Flags of the PKK and YPG are seen moving down the street as thousands of people from all over the world march in opposition to the globalist nature of the summit.

Bijî Şoreşa Rojava” [Long Live Rojava Revolution] slogans are being chanted already in the cortage of the Kurds.

The “Rojava revolution” they are speaking of is in actually a U.S-backed destabilization campaign designed to depopulate part of Syria so it can be claimed by the Kurds as part of Greater Kurdistan, what Condi Rice was referring to all those years ago when she spoke of what was happening in Iraq (after our illegal invasion based on lies) as “the birth pangs of a New Middle East”

No revolution here; just some opportunistic Kurds trying to take advantage of the situation so they can become the next great client state of the U.S., Britain and Israel.

The irony is hard too ignore. The tens of thousands of protesters are out there legitimately opposing globalization and the control the masters of the universe think they can exert on the peoples of the rest of the world but the Kurds themselves, while pretending to be revolutionaries, are hoping to be the beneficiaries of the biggest and most important globalist foreign policy agenda the world has seen since the illegal invasion and occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq.

Meanwhile, inside the summit itself, Greater Kurdistan is shaping up to be one of the biggest topics no body seems to want to report on.

Turkey has a long history of opposing the Greater Kurdistan project. I’ve written about their position many times. Here’s an article from al Monitor from Sept. of 2014 which lays out Turkey’s position quite clearly.

“As far as I can see, the government and the military agree on one very fundamental point: They both think that the United States’ strategy in “the fight against the Islamic State (IS)” could lead to the creation of Greater Kurdistan, that is, an independent Kurdish state uniting the Kurds of Turkey, Syria, Iraq and later Iran.

Inevitably, such a state would be carved out on the territories of the said countries. This would mark the demise of the current Middle East...” al Monitor

Hence the “birth pangs of a New Middle East”

Army general command: international coalition air force targets an army’s warplane in Raqqa countryside

SANA News Agency

The Army general command announced on Sunday that the air force of the so-called “international coalition” targeted one of the army’s warplanes in al-Rasafah region in Raqqa southern countryside while it was carrying out a combatant mission against ISIS terrorist organization, causing it to down and missing its pilot.

The General command said in a statement that the flagrant aggression undoubtedly affirms the US real stance in support of terrorism which aims to affect the capability of the Syrian Arab army- the only active force- along with its allies that practice its legitimate right in combating terrorism all over Syria…

“Russia! Russia! Russia!”, Greater Kurdistan and Qatar: What An Oily Tangled Web We Weave

by Scott Creighton

Back in 2011 before the US pulled out it’s forces, Exxon’s CEO, Rex Tillerson, signed a deal with the Barzani clan to drill for oil in 3 areas that Iraq still considered part of their country. That didn’t matter to Rex. Apparently Big Oil doesn’t recognize national sovereignty issues if they get in the way of profits. As if that was news.

“Hussain Shahristani, the Deputy Prime Minister in charge of energy matters, told The Independent in an interview in Baghdad that any oil or gas field development contract in Iraq “needs the approval of the federal government, and any contract that has not been presented to the federal government has no standing and the companies are not advised to work on Iraqi territory in breach of Iraqi laws“. Independent, 2011

Iraq’s Prime Minister, Nouri al-Maliki, saw this at the time to be a betrayal of his agreement with his owners in the US, the ones who put him in charge. Back then the Kurds were stealing chunks of valuable Iraqi real estate and claiming them as their own in their quest to make the southern section of what I call “Greater Kurdistan” which will ultimately involve chunks of Iraq, Syria, Turkey and Iran.

Apparently Prime Minister Maliki wasn’t on board with the creation of a new oil-rich power-house nation and so he simply had to go.

The Kurds have been terrorizing various areas of Iraq ever since, looking to depopulate them and then claim them as their own.

“War is an ugly business, but in some northern villages scattered near the front line between Kurdish fighters and the jihadis of the Islamic State, there is growing evidence of a far uglier crime perpetrated by America’s closest allies in Iraq. For months, humanitarians working in areas wrested back from the Islamic State have quietly documented a pattern of Sunni Arabs, who were displaced during the jihadis’ advance, being denied the right to return home.

Witnesses — including a half-dozen aid workers, a European diplomat, and a terrified resident of the affected area — say the Kurdish Peshmerga, the military force of Iraqi Kurdistan, has an agenda that goes beyond fighting the Islamic State: establishing the boundaries of a future Kurdish state and moving the Arabs out.” Foreign Policy, 2015

Today the Kurds are still up to their old tricks. They are demanding Raqqa be busted off as a piece of what they call “Rojava” or “Western Kurdistan” in their ruthless, blood-thirsty drive to make Greater Kurdistan. And they are engaged in ethnic cleansing of Syrian territories as well (see here, here and here) in fact, they’ve been doing it all along… as if that was the whole point from the start.

Stealing Syria: Kurds INSIST Raqqa Become Part of Greater Kurdistan

Sputnik International

… SDF members insist that after the liberation of Raqqa the region will become part of the Federal Democratic System of Rojava and Northern Syria.

“Since the assault on Raqqa is carried out by the SDF, it makes sense that after its recapture, the city will become a part of the democratic federal system created by us in northern Syria,” Gharib Hassou, a representative of the Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) in Iraqi Kurdistan, told Sputnik…

US Plan to Arm PKK/YPG is a Declaration of War Against Turkey

(Kurds are the best fighters of KurdISIS because, they go in with their “ISIS” hats on and attack soft targets killing civilians to drive them out of a town or village… and then they put on their Glorious Kurds hats and say they drove “ISIS” out… so of course, the town or village is theirs now. Hence “KurdISIS”. Let me demonstrate via a nifty visual aid)

(And Penny is absolutely correct. The next regime change target is Erdogan and Turkey. That’s the next piece of the Greater Kurdistan project. So Erdogan is right too say this is a direct threat to the nation of Turkey… because it is.)

Turkey Says U.S. Plan to Arm Kurds in Syria Supports Terrorism
Quoting from Bloomberg in red 

 “This issue is a matter of existence or nonexistence for Turkey,” Deputy Prime Minister Nurettin Canikli told AHaber television on Wednesday. “It is a matter of survival for Turkey. Everyone should see it this way. We can never accept or allow the existence of terrorist organizations that pose a threat to Turkey’s future.”

The US has just declared war, without actually stating it, against Turkey! Get it? That is exactly what has occurred! In the same way the US declared war against Syria without stating it. Actions speak much louder then words and the actions of the US are loudly screaming the intent! And the 5 eyes media is delivering the message with abundance today.

Patrick Cockburn- The Independent

 “President Trump’s decision to provide weapons to the Syrian Kurds, who are fighting Isis, potentially marks a crucial change in the political geography of the Middle East.”

Patrick is telling half the story… of course. While also pushing the same bullshit about “kurds/best fighters” The change in political geography will equate to an actual change in the physical geography- As has already occurred in Syria…
