Trump Continues With Obama’s Greater Kurdistan Project: He’s Bombing Bridges and Water Lines in Raqqa for the Kurds

by Scott Creighton

NEW map

Condi Rice’s “New Middle East” isn’t dead yet. The election of a candidate who promised to leave other countries alone to find their own fate has not thwarted their plans in the slightest, I’m sorry too say.

“Donald Trump campaigned on an “antiwar” platform vis-a-vis Syria and it was the primary reason that many a revolutionary activist entertained his many, MANY flaws and preferred his candidacy over the certifiably bloodthirsty Hillary Clinton. Well, without any further ado, that idea can be chucked out the window ’cause President Supercilious Orange, following up on his crime against humanity in Yemen’s Al-Bayda, committed unspeakable atrocities in Syria just a few days ago. On February 3rd, American warplanes, continuing to illegally fly in Syrian airspace without Syrian approval, carried out several sorties over ISIS’s de facto capital of Raqqa. But it wasn’t the Daeshi terrorists who were targeted. Instead, what the US ZOG bombed were the new and old bridges of Raqqa City, key outlets that allowed at least handfuls of Syrians to escape the barbaric Takfiri hell that the northern Syrian province had become, as well as the bridges of Al-Kalta and Al-Abbara in Raqqa’s northern countryside.” Jonathan Azaziah

Trump did indeed campaign on an anti-interventionist platform which is one of the reasons the complict MSM hated him so much. But then again, so did “W” and ObamaGod before him.

“Air strikes on Friday in Raqqa hit two bridges over the Euphrates river, hindering movement from the city southwards and killing six IS militants, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.

U.S. support for the SDF has been a point of tension with NATO ally Turkey, which views the YPG as an extension of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), a group that has fought a three-decade insurgency in Turkey.” Reuters

Raqqa is located on the east bank of the Euphrates river. For some, that river is quickly becoming the border between Syria and “Rojava” or the “Western Kurdistan” part of Greater Kurdistan.

South Kurdistan is the stolen part of Iraq. “Northern Kurdistan” will be hacked out of Turkey (that plan is already underway). And “Eastern Kurdistan” will be the last piece, chopped from a segment of what is currently known as Iran today.

That, ladies and gentlemen, is the Greater Kurdistan project and that is why no matter how many times they seem to have failed in Syria, they keep going on and on with their murder and destabilization like a Nazi Energizer Bunny on Meth.

Is Iraqi Kurdistan heading toward civil war?

(Is the Greater Kurdistan project collapsing?)

by Denise Natali, from al Monitor

The campaign against the Islamic State (IS) in Mosul has diverted attention from simmering problems inside the Kurdistan Region of Iraq that will affect post-conflict stabilization. Within the last several months alone, there has been another assassination of a Kurdish journalist, an “honor” killing of a university student, death threats against a female Kurdish parliamentarian, bombing of an Iranian Kurdish party office that killed seven people and a string of foiled terrorist attacks in Sulaimaniyah province. These incidents have occurred alongside ongoing demonstrations by civil servants for unpaid salaries, a nonfunctioning Kurdish parliament, swelling numbers of refugees and internally displaced persons, an expanded Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) and Turkish airstrikes on PKK bases in northern Iraq. They have not only reversed most gains the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) has realized since 2011, but also leave the Kurdistan Region increasingly vulnerable to financial collapse and internal conflict.

Instead of “inevitable Kurdish statehood” after the defeat of IS, a more realistic scenario is weakened autonomy, political entropy and armed conflicts. The KRG launched “independent” exports in 2014, but the Kurdish economy is now in tatters. KRG debt exceeds $22 billion. The availability of electricity has decreased to 2005 levels, or about four hours a day in many areas without private generators. Tens of thousands of youths continue to migrate from the region. The once-touted Kurdish energy sector is being undermined legally and politically. Although the KRG exports about 600,000 barrels of oil per day to Ceyhan, these exports remain contentious, are dependent on Turkey and are largely sourced from Kirkuk — still a disputed territory — and not the Kurdistan Region. International oil companies have thus far abandoned 19 oil fields in the Kurdistan Region, including ExxonMobil’s withdrawal from three of its six fields.

Emails between the KRG Ministry of Natural Resources and Turkish officials released by WikiLeaks reveal the depth of the KRG’s financial crisis and the political fallout. In the eyes of some Kurds, the ministry’s attempt to secure an additional $5 billion in loans from Ankara and offer Turkey a larger stake in Kurdish-controlled oil fields may help protect the economic interests of the Kurdistan Region. Others, however, including parliamentarians in Erbil, see things differently and oppose the ministry’s proposal as the “selling of the Kurdish land to Turkey.” Iraqi officials in Baghdad have also reacted critically, arguing that the KRG does not have the legal right to sell oil fields to Turkey.

Understanding this Weekend’s Kurdish Terror Attacks in Turkey and the Wave of New McCarthyism

by Scott Creighton

The greatest threat to the well-being of the United States and the rest of humanity is the out of control and desperate post 9/11 “Capitalism’s Invisible Army” (CIA) armed with their proxy mercenary armies (Kurds and Kurd”ISIS”), “moderate” terrorists (Free Syrian Army), al-Qaeda off-shoots (al-Nusra) and seemingly endless piles of unregulated cash (thanks to congress and all that heroin we are cultivating over in Afghanistan).

Contrary to popular belief, the Greater Kurdistan project is not dead on arrival. The recent defeat of Hillary Clinton (and her minions of global instability) in the recent U.S. presidential election caused ripples of concern throughout the ranks of the CIA’s “moderate” terrorist cottage industry in the Middle East. However, these animals didn’t’ crawl away to lick their wounds. Instead, like wounded predators, they are pressing forward in a fevered pitch to rundown and feast on their prey before they become to weak to accomplish their task.

What’s happening in Syria, Turkey, Iraq and Iran is quite simple. One graphic makes it all very clear.

Qatar, our closest ally in the Middle East and financial backer of many of the “moderate” terrorists looking to force a regime change in Syria (interesting: Trump’s latest Sec. of State contender, Exxon CEO, has a vested interest in the Qatar LNG pipeline question as Exxon is the leading foreign investment partner to Qatar’s state-own LNG industry) along with Saudi Arabia have a very serious reason for wanting Assad to go and a more friendly regime to be installed in Turkey: total global hegemony in the future LNG market.

Two Kurdish Members of KurdISIS Killed in Coalition Airstrikes

(A few of us have been saying for a while that the Kurds were serving as the “ISIS” destabilization campaign in Iraq and Syria in an effort to secure for themselves a Greater Kurdistan payday. That’s why “ISIS” always leaves a city they terrorize just in time for the Kurds to move in and occupy it. Penny saw an article that seems to lend more credence to our conclusions.)

UPDATE:Yup, ISIS just walked away from 8 Syrian villages. US backed ISIS hands 8 Syrian villages over to US backed Kurdish militias PKK/YPG.

from Base News (H/T Penny)

Two Kurdish members of Islamic State have been killed in southwestern Kirkuk, said the Kirkuk police directorate in a statement on Wednesday.

The statement revealed that Abu Ayoub al-Kurdi and Smo Pshtiwan Talabani were eliminated by the US-led coalition warplanes in Hawija, where at least six IS positions were targeted.

Abu Bara al-Mosuli, the IS commander in charge of the weapons cache in Hawija, was also killed in the airstrikes.

Russia Sells Out Syria: Proposes Federalization of the Country and Busting Off A Piece for Greater Kurdistan (Rojava)

by Scott Creighton (H/T Penny)

(first a little background)

Well, I hate too say I told you so.

“Meanwhile, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has insisted just the other day that Syrian Kurds be allowed to participate in the next round of peace talks. Apparently Russia wants to help the Kurds (our new beloved Freedom Fighters) break off a piece of a sovereign nation for themselves.” Scott Creighton April 2016

In fact, I’ve told you many times.

Russia Sells Out Syria – Opens Syrian Kurdistan NGO Offices in Moscow as Balkinization Process Begins Feb. 2016

Even provided nifty graphics, this one from Ekurd (who got mad at me for writing about the “Bust Off a Piece of Syria” plan before they were ready to go public):

Over at Penny’s place (Penny for Your Thoughts) she has posted an article about Syria rejecting a Russian proposal for Kurdish federation. According to the new proposal, three cantons would be federalized as sovereign territory for the Kurds: Jazeera, Kobani and Afrin. As it just so happens, those three cantons just happen to make up what the Kurds refer to as “Rojava” or… “Western Kurdistan” as seen in the image above. You will notice a piece of Turkey is “Northern Kurdistan” a piece of Iraq is “Southern Kurdistan” and that leaves one more, if you follow the logic, and that is “Eastern Kurdistan” which will have to be scratched from a little existing country in the Middle East called “Iran”

Here’s what Wiki says about “Rojava”

Exposed: Deep State Ties to the Failed Turkish Coup

(President Erdogan is still being routinely demonized as the “creator”, “protector” and “state sponsor” of “ISIS” as well as a supposed full fledged partner in crime with the US/NATO war of aggression in Syria in both the MSM and unfortunately the so-called “alternative” media as well. Several things prove this is not the case. Many have even tried to make the claim that the failed coup in Turkey was a false flag event he himself staged in order to justify more authoritarian crackdowns in the country he supposedly rules with an iron fist. None of that is true. As I have pointed out many times, Erdogan began drifting away from the neoliberal West years ago when he first refused to take out another IMF loan and ever since then he has been targeted for either hard or soft regime change. His understanding of the Greater Kurdistan project and his opposition to it (because it requires a third of his country to make it work) cinched the deal. His own military leadership attempted to take him out on behalf of Western interests, just like the Morsi presidency in Egypt not that long ago. It was these same military leaders who have been allowing their border to be infiltrated by US/NATO “moderate” terrorists for all these years and these same CIA-backed generals who helped US interests stage the shoot-down of a Russian fighter jet this year. Erdogan has, after the failed coup, fired hundreds of generals linked to NATO and the CIA and has gone out of his way to reestablish mutually beneficial ties with Moscow. He is still very much opposed to the formation of Condi Rice’s “new Middle East” with Greater Kurdistan as it’s foundation. The following article sheds light on perhaps the most important and influential deep state program of the past ten years but it shouldn’t be telling anyone here anything new, only providing more insight and confirmation of what I and a few others (like Penny) have been reporting for quite sometime. What is interesting though is how Hillary Clinton was still receiving briefings from very influential assets of the deep state long after she left office.)

By Stephen A. Molling , Activist Post

Emails released by WikiLeaks describe recent activities of the American deep state. Of note is a statement by Henry Kissinger about President Erdogan six months before a failed coup against the Turkish leader:

Kissinger felt it was a “fantasy” to think Erdogan could become pro-Western, since he is very pro-Islamic.

The quote is from a leaked email entitled Turkey and ISIS (Defense Policy Board) sent to Hillary Clinton Advisor, Jake Sullivan, on January 17, 2016. The sixteen-point memo is intended to alert the Clinton campaign of the Defense Policy Board’s conclusion that President Erdogan is persona non grata.

Henry Kissinger is famous for the statement that “power is the ultimate aphrodisiac.” He has proven experience exercising that power while removing uncooperative heads of state.

After serving on the Defense Policy Board (DPB) for decades, 93-year-old Kissinger is the ranking elder of the council. He expressed the consensus of the group when he called the Turkish President anti-Western. For Erdogan it could have been the kiss of death.

All Hell Breaks Loose Last Night in New York and Syria So Obama Goes Ahead with Race-baiting Campaign Event for Hillary

by Scott Creighton

priority-1

With bombs going off and being found in New York (8:30pm EST) and an emergency UN Security Council meeting (7:30 pm EST) called to discuss the Pentagon openly attacking the Syrian military yesterday (which killed 63 Syrian soldiers and allowed “ISIS” to surge after the attack) President Obama went forward with his scheduled speech at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation conference in which he angrily instructed black people to get out the vote for Hillary. He told them he would be “insulted” if they didn’t come out for the corrupt war-monger this year like they did for him in 2008 and 2012 when Obama represented the idea of “CHANGE” and supposedly opposed interventionism across the world.

After the initial explosion a second device, a pressure cooker with a phone taped to it, was found. The validity of that device remains in question as it was not detonated at the site but rather taken back to be investigated and it supposedly had a note written on a piece of paper found with it.

Bombs going off in New York city, a possible war unfolding in the Middle East… and Obama’s primary objective is to go out and angrily instruct black people that they need to vote for one of the most disliked war-mongering candidates in the history of American politics? The same candidate who’s previous campaign produced the Birther movement?

Is this a joke?

Nope. No joke.
