“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…

Turkish Military Confirms Airstrikes Against Kurdish YPG in Northern Syria, Iraq

from Sputnik International

Earlier in the day, the Syrian Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) said Turkish planes carried out a large-scale attack on its headquarters in northeast Syria near the town of Derik in the Qerecox mountains, targeting a media center, a local radio station and some military buildings as well as killing several YPG members. Kurdish media also said Iraq’s town of Sinjar was hit by Turkish jets, with over a dozen Peshmerga troops killed. Turkey was said to have targeted a Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) base in the region.

“Iraqi Sinjar and Syria’s Qerecox have become a layer for the PKK and its affiliates, which are carrying out terrorist attacks and are attacking our troops [and] civilians. Aiming to wipe out these havens that are threatening the unity of our nation and the unity and security of the country, we carried out an aerial operation in Sinjar in the north of Iraq and in northeast Syria at 00:00 GMT on April 25. Terrorist targets were hit,” the General Staff said in a statement.

Turkish forces will continue fighting terrorism both inside the country and beyond its borders, the statement added…

Washington’s ‘Greater’ Middle East Project – An Interview With a Syrian About the Kurds

(Title slightly modified by me. Please remember, this is what Condi Rice was talking about when she went to Israel and gave a lecture about “the birth pangs of the New Middle East” in 2006.  Greater Kurdistan was Bush’s objective, Obama’s objective, Clinton’s objective and now it’s Trump’s objective. It is the single most influential and important foreign policy objective to the whole of the globalist community and no one, I mean NO ONE with a few notable exceptions, has been talking about it. Now it is slowly coming out of the closet as the U.S. tries to justify busting off a piece of a sovereign nation to hand over to the Kurds who are a minority in the region.)

by Sarah Abed & Mark Taliano from Global Research

The US-led coalition of war criminals is using elements of Syria’s Kurdish population to achieve the U.S Empire’s goal of destroying the non-belligerent, democratic country of Syria, led by its hugely popular, democratically-elected President, Bashar al-Assad.

Empire seeks to create sectarianism and ethnic divides in a country that, prior to the Western-launched criminal dirty war, had neither…

Syrian-American Sarah Abed, was born in Al Qamishly and has lived in both the USA and Syria throughout her life. She makes frequent trips back and forth. Sarah is in direct daily contact with family and friends that reside in different parts of Syria. Sarah conducted and translated an interview with a close family friend, “Samir”, who lives in Syria and is well informed about the conditions on the ground.

Samir’s commentaries are consistent with President Assad’s assessment of the Imperialists’ strategy of “divide and conquer”: (full interview after the break)

How the Greater Kurdistan Project Works in One Simple Graphic

US group accuses Kurds of keeping Yazidi, Christian refugees from their Iraqi homeland (it’s called ethnic cleansing )

(Ah the glorious Kurds. Our new “freedom fighters” made in the same mold as “al Qaeda” in Afghanistan, the “moderates” in Syria and the “Contras” in Latin America. Fighting for nothing more than truth, justice and the American way of “democracy” over in the Middle East. I mean… Kurdi Kimmie said so right? So it has to be true. Unfortunately for Kimmie and her new best friends the Kurds, Amnesty International has been detailing their ethnic cleansing operations in Iraq and Syria for several years (here and here) and it’s becoming more and more obvious that the glorious Kurds are nothing more than invading Huns raping and conquering with the help of Big Brother on their way to Greater Kurdistan. Hell, even the U.S. ambassador to Turkey, John Bass, said the Kurds were ethnically cleansing the areas they take over after “ISIS” is allowed to leave. And now Fox “News” admits as much as well?)

from Fox “News”

U.S. representatives of Iraq’s long-persecuted Assyrian Christian minority are blasting claims by the country’s Kurdish Regional Government that its refusal to let them return home aims only to protect them. But the KRG, which denies the accusation, cites unexploded roadside bombs left by now-expelled Islamic State forces as a key reason for — temporarily — barring the Assyrian Christians from their homeland.

The clash between the KRG and the American representatives of the Assyrians erupted earlier this week, signaling strains in what had been a solid anti-ISIS alliance of Kurds and Assyrian Christians. The other large Christian group in Iraq, known as Chaldeans, enjoys harmonious relations with the KRG.

According to a report from The Investigative Project on Terrorism, the KRG has blocked both the Assyrians and the Yazidis from returning to their villages across a broad expanse of northern Iraq known as the Nineveh Plain.

“It’s really been a case of adding insult to injury to insult again,” Jeff Gardiner, director of operations for advocacy and relief foundation Restore Nineveh Now, said to Fox News. “The Kurdish authorities did not protect the people of the Nineveh Plain. In a way, this was enabled by the Kurdish government. They really set them [Yazidis and Assyrians] up for this catastrophic outcome.”…
