by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: A reader informed me that he could reach SANA and so I tried again and it worked. Maybe “ISIS” hit em with a DDS or something.

Syrian rebels struck Damascus with 38 rockets, casualties reported

John McCain’s moderate mercenaries

 

“Do no evil”

That’s what CIA-crafted Google says.

“Do no evil”

Meanwhile in Syria, John McCain’s precious “moderate” terrorists are bombing civilians in Damascus.

I figured I would do a little follow-up to the Damascus story this morning, but unfortunately, seems Google and pretty much everyone else are blocking the Syrian news website, SANA.

What a coincidence, huh?

Barack Obama Airdrops Arms and Supplies to PKK Terrorists Outside Kobani

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: The terrorists linked to the PKK say “thanks but we want more weapons

—-

While the people of the United States are being deliberately distracted by the criminally over-hyped Ebola Crisis™, President Peace Prize is backing the Shi’a death-squads of the murderous al-Maliki regime in Iraq (read here , here and here) and air-dropping weapons, munitions and other aid to a notorious terrorist organization, the Kurdish Worker’s Party (PKK), in Syria (read here and here).

“The United States has airdropped small arms, ammunition and medical supplies to Kurdish militia forces in the besieged city of Kobani who have been fighting back an ISIS assault for weeks. The airdrops will likely stir controversy with the Turkish government, which has opposed support for Kurdish military groups in Syria that it believes are affiliated with a Kurdish group that has conducted terrorist attacks inside Turkey for decadesABC News

“The airdrops are almost certain to anger the Turkish government, which has said it would oppose any U.S. arms transfers to the Kurdish rebels in Syria. Turkey views the main Kurdish group in Syria as an extension of the Turkish Kurd group known as the PKK, which has waged a 30-year insurgency in Turkey and is designated a terror group by the U.S. and by NATO.” AP

Senior administration officials reported that on Sunday night three American C-130 aircraft dropped 27 pallets of materials for the Kurdish fighters in or near Kobani. It was classified as “the type of material that would help them sustain this fight.”

The PKK is classified as a terrorist organization by Turkey, NATO, the EU and the United States among many others.

President Obama Backing/Creating Shi’a Deaths in Iraq – Amnesty Int. Report: Absolute Impunity: Militia Rule in Iraq

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: go here to the NYT to read about the latest CIA report which claims their programs of arming and running terrorists over the decades has largely been a failure.

Dose of reality – The United States via the left cover of President Peace Prize, is fully backing and supporting a murderous regime in Iraq and we are all supposed to jump on board the band wagon because of a few poorly made fake beheading videos.

When this whole “ISIS Crisis” thing took off, I wrote that it was all about justifying the Iraq government’s use of Shi’a death-squads, previously referred to as the Salvador Option under the Bush administration, to quell a popular Sunni uprising against the corrupt neoliberal government we installed so long ago. More to the point, I wrote that it was all about creating a pretext, a narrative, that would provide adequate cover for the current “progressive” president to resort to a repeat of the worst kind of American atrocities created over the previous decades and condemned pretty much universally by most Americans regardless of their political affiliations.

That was 4 months ago, pretty much to the day and I have been standing by that conclusion ever since.

I included some quotes which made clear the definition of the Salvador Option and other interesting facts.

What to do about the deepening quagmire of Iraq? The Pentagon’s latest approach is being called “the Salvador option”–and the fact that it is being discussed at all is a measure of just how worried Donald Rumsfeld really is. “What everyone agrees is that we can’t just go on as we are,” one senior military officer told NEWSWEEK. “We have to find a way to take the offensive against the insurgents. Right now, we are playing defense. And we are losing.” Last November’s operation in Fallujah, most analysts agree, succeeded less in breaking “the back” of the insurgency–as Marine Gen. John Sattler optimistically declared at the time–than in spreading it out. Newsweek 2005

Yesterday, the Guardian published an article detailing how the US turned to the use of death squads in Iraq to quell the rise of Sunni militias.  The article provides convincing evidence that this was an intentional policy and was in fact a central tenet of David Petraeus’ often-praised counterinsurgency, or COIN, strategy. The key person in the Guardian’s reporting is James Steele, who was a veteran in organizing Central American death squads on behalf of the US during the Reagan years.”  Empty Wheel

Yesterday, Amnesty International released a report, Absolute Impunity: Militia Rule in Iraq (PDF) which I would like to share a bit of with you readers. The conclusions they come to after a rather damning report are important to note, but I think in some ways they miss the bigger picture. International law demands that military and civilian leaders who are complicit and even accessories to the crimes of these tens of thousands of death-squad members, must be held accountable for those actions as if they committed them themselves. That would include of course Nuri al-Malaki and any and all military and civilian leaders from outside Iraq who are providing aid and comfort to these now fully exposed terrorists.

And who do you think I mean by that?
