MIC 2019 Budget Request: $550 Million for KurdISIS and $850 Million to Fight Ghost of ISIS in Iraq

The MIC’s budget proposal for 2019 is out and it includes all sorts of pork and billions in Dark Money slush funds. But it also includes a bunch for KurdISIS and a bunch more to fight the ghost of ISIS in Iraq.

At what point are we going to stop giving Oscars to Syrian hearts and minds campaigns and get out in the street to protest this rush to nuclear war?

We better grow up quick as a community and realize this can only end badly for the whole planet.

Al Qaeda leader praises Israeli strike on Syria – “We urge them to do more”

from Arutz Sheva 7

A former leader of Syria’s Al Qaeda branch commended Israel for striking Syria on Saturday, after the Assad regime shot down an Israeli F-16I fighter jet…

The strikes were praised by Saleh Al-Hamwi, a founder of Syria’s Jabhat Al Nusra. Jabhat Al Nusra, or Nusra Front, is an Al-Qaeda offshoot in Syria and are one of the Assad regime’s opponents in the bloody civil war.

Al-Hamwi tweeted that “we welcome any Israeli aerial or naval bombardment against the regime and Iran in Syria. We urge them to do more. And we say to Israel: Your silence over Iran’s intervention in Syria will turn against you. It’s inevitable. Act with haste to uproot them”…

Official Statement from ISIS Hunters in Syria After Deir ez-Zor – “no difference between ISIS and Kurds”

(Yesterday I published part of Sarah Abed’s on the ground report from Kurdish occupied areas in which she reports that most view the Kurds as the exact same thing as “ISIS”. They are being treated the same way by them and they are being driven off their land, their businesses stolen or taxed by the Kurds. The Kurds are kidnapping young men and forcing them to fight in this “New Syrian Army” of theirs against the Turks and against the Syrian Arab Army. NOW the Syrians UNDERSTAND why Erdogan sees the Kurds as the SAME as “ISIS”. That is because they are “ISIS”. They are one and the same… as Penny and I have written for years.)

from AMN

The pro-government ISIS Hunters released an official statement on Sunday condemning the US Coalition’s airstrikes that killed several members of the Syrian Armed Forces on February 7th.

The ISIS Hunters specifically condemned both the US Coalition and the Kurdish forces that are currently in control of the majority of the northeastern countryside of Deir Ezzor.

Below is the official statement that was released by the ISIS Hunters:

Kurds in Conflict-Ridden Northeastern Syria Turn to Kidnapping, Conscription, ISIS-like Tactics

(Oh look at that. KurdISIS is acting like… well like KurdISIS. What do you know. And look… Shaddadah is the same town that David Ignatius was visiting when he wrote that horrible article about how da ebil Rooskies helped the Syrian Dictator attack the poor, democratic Kurds. What a shock huh? He was that close to a bunch of slave soldiers and didn’t notice a thing.)

by Sarah Abed, Mint Press News

Over the past few weeks, multiple independent on-the-ground sources have provided and corroborated information regarding disturbing events taking place in and around the Al Hassakah governorate in northeastern Syria.

One of the most startling allegations made is that the People’s Protection Units (YPG) and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have been arresting and kidnapping men aged 18 to 40 in the Al Hassakah governorate, which includes Al Qamishli and other towns under their control. They are taking these men against their will to Kurdish militia training camps, where they will stay for some time and receive training before being forced to fight in the so-called “New Syrian Army” or “North Syrian Army.” I was told that some of these men are being taken to the front lines to fight in Afrin as well.

According to RT, in late December:

Russia’s Reconciliation Center for Syria issued a statement accusing the U.S.-led coalition of creating the so-called ‘New Syrian Army.’ The group comprises remnants of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS), the Al-Nusra Front and others, and is based at a refugee camp in north-east Syria, which is located 20 kilometers from Al-Shaddadah town. Local refugees, returning to areas freed from IS, say the refugee camp has been used by the coalition as a training ground for militants for over six months.”

Eddie and Qamishli resident Samer, a reliable local source, provided me with further insight into on-the-ground conditions and human rights violations they witnessed in Syria. These included soaring real-estate prices as wealthy Kurds buy up as much property that they can get their hands on, often paying the owners double the property’s value.

Kurds are able to offer more for these properties due to illegal control of Syrian industry – including the oil, transportation, financial sectors — imposing unlawful taxes, and charging fees for everyday things such as renewing licenses or carrying out normal business activities. If one wants to sell a certain good, they are directed to a Kurd who is in charge of collecting a tax on that particular good. They are doing this for almost everything and the local population is suffering as a result.

Eddie went on to say:

YPG, PYD, SDF, MSF, they are all the same. The SDF have aligned themselves with the Free Syrian Army who openly work side by side with Jabhat Al Nusra [Al Qaeda]. The Kurd[ish militias] have recruited ex-ISIS members.”

Eddie Gaboro Hanna told me: “They [the Kurdish militias] are still taking land and property from Christians by force and charging the Christian businesses a tax.” They are also destroying historical sites and claiming Assyrian artifacts to be Kurdish in origin. Historical revisionism is taking place, and the indigenous people are crying out for the world to stop these violations…

Pentagon Says Conducted ‘Defensive’ Airstrikes Against Pro-Syrian Gov’t Forces

(So now we are directly attacking Syrian troops on behalf of the Glorious Kurds (read as “new Contras”) as they attempt to stop them from busting off a piece of their country for the Greater Kurdistan project. Or was it the Turks we attacked?)

from Sputnik

The US-led coalition conducted defensive airstrikes against pro-government forces in Syria that attacked Syrian Democratic Forces headquarters near the Euphrates River, the Central Command said in a press release.

“Syrian pro-regime forces initiated an unprovoked attack against well-established Syrian Democratic Forces headquarters Feb. 7,” the release said Wednesday. “In defense of Coalition and partner forces, the Coalition conducted strikes against attacking forces to repel the act of aggression against partners engaged in the Global Coalition’s defeat-Daesh [Daesh] mission.”…
