Petraeus, Zakheim and Barzani – Laying the Groundwork for a Bigger and More Corrupt Kurdistan at the Sulaimani Forum

by Scott Creighton

As of late we’ve been hearing a lot about the possibility of creating a new Kurdistan by expanding the “de facto” Iraqi Kurdistan into other people’s nations, namely Syria and Turkey (both being equally demonized in the press )

A recent call put out by the George Soros funded AVAAZ begs “progressive” readers to sign a petition asking President Peace Prize to please carpet bomb a northern corridor in Syria for “humanitarian” reasons.

The “alternative” Tea Party leader also got into the act recently, trying to drum up support for the same kind of action only he made the objective a bit clearer:

I would draw new lines for Kurdistan and I would promise them a country,” Rand Paul

Looks like he’s punching his ticket to a 2016 Vice Presidency, doesn’t it?

These things are not unrelated. Nor is it a coincidence that Gen Petraeus, Dov Zakheim and the totally corrupt President of Iraqi Kurdistan, Masoud Barzani, got together last week to map out a strategy for the creation of a Greater Kurdistan while simultaneously laying the groundwork for yet another new LNG pipeline.

In our recent tradition of really, really, really bad ideas, this one ranks up there with the classics.

New “Chlorine Gas Barrel Bomb” Propaganda Video Custom Made for Obama’s New “Red Line” in Syria – Kurdistan Waits in Wings

by Scott Creighton (H/T Nancy)

UPDATE: Go over to carinaragno’s website to read about how three U.S. servicemen were recently photographed in Kobani helping Kurdish separatists fighting against the Syrian government for their new Kurdistan homeland.

———-

Obama and folks like Rand Paul, are trying to take the northern half of Syria and give it to the pro-Western Kurds as part of their new Kurdistan. We can’t let them do it.

Two weeks ago the United States rammed through a seemingly meaningless resolution in the UN Security Council which basically said the legitimate government in Syria that Obama is determined to oust from office had better not drop barrel bombs filled with chlorine gas on their own people or Barack will start bombing the people of that country like he did when they made up lies about Gaddafi and started a “no fly zone” over there.

It was the “new” red line for Obama. You might remember the “old” red line for Obama involved the use of chemical weapons and just as soon as that was tossed out there, the “moderate” terrorists run by the likes of John McCain staged a nice chemical weapons attack and the Obama administration and all of the MSM tried to frame Assad for it. They failed miserably and it was all forgotten and forgiven. We still fund the “moderate” terrorist friends of John McCain who used the chemical weapons.

Two days ago a video surfaced which claims to show victims of exactly the same kind of weapon that was defined as the “new red line” for Obama. What a coincidence.

Lyin Joe Biggs and Di$info Jone$ Selling out for British Royal Family and Sarah Palin in the Same Week

by Scott Creighton

“I happen to know for a fact. An absolute fact, and listen to me very carefully, that people who practice this kind of broadcasting and claim to be an American patriot do nothing but discredit all of us eventually” Bill Cooper

Is there no end to the fraud that is Di$info Jone$? Apparently not.

Obama’s Salvador Option in Iraq: Death Squads Getting a Little Mainstream Attention… a little

by Scott Creighton

The consequence of not mentioning the connection between the US and the Iranian-backed Badr Brigade militia, the US-backed Wolf Brigade and other Special Police Commando units, or the extent of American recruitment, training, command, and control of these units[19] distorted perceptions of events in Iraq, creating the impression of senseless violence initiated by the Iraqis themselves and concealing the American hand in the planning and execution of the most savage forms of violence. Dirk Adriaensens, Brussels Tribunal

The fervor over the fake “burning man” video is laughable to the point of tears. It’s ridiculous actually when you put that one guy acting in a movie pretending to be about to die, in context of what our secret warriors have really done to millions of civilians over the past few decades. What our secret warriors, our “freedom fighters”, are STILL doing in Iraq as we speak.

Today, the New York Times had to shed a tiny bit of light on the reality creeping out of occupied Iraq and that reality is… yes, our puppet regime has unleashed organized death squads (just like I wrote about nearly a year ago and again in Aug.) on the population of their country who happen to opposed the corrupt, brutal government we installed.

Of course, the New York Times, the sickening subservient sycophants to global power structures that they are, had to present these monsters in the kindest, most endearing light they could muster. This is the new face of the old death squads of the Iraq Salvador Option under President Peace Prize’s administration, so of course, the Times had to present them like Bill Clinton playing a sax on Saturday Night Live.

This is how the New York Times presents death squads in Iraq

John McCain’s Response to Kiev Government Using Cluster Bombs on Civilian Population? Give them more bombs.

by Scott Creighton

When truth becomes the lie, the insidious conspiracy theory, while the lie becomes the unassailable gospel, the duty of the heretic becomes crystal clear.

Embedded image permalink

With all the hoopla surrounding the affected outraged over the fabricated “burning man” video, it’s hard to temper the warmongering spirit of folks like Sen. John McCain who currently chairs the Senate Armed Services Committee. Little will dilute his mighty, righteous wrath which he wields like a faith healer does a bible. All he wants is to send your kids to fight, maim and kill on behalf of his friend’s business interests all across the world. Is that too much to ask?

We are chastised by trolls if we don’t respect the authenticity of the of the obviously fake  Muath Al-Kaseasbeh video and collectively rally in a whirlwind of rabid nationalism to rid the world of the “barbaric” and “inhuman” scourge that is ‘ISIS’ a.k.a. “the Bad Muslims”

We “witnessed” the burning of a pilot who had just dropped bombs on civilians and combatants alike in Syria, but that is of no consequence. Man’s inhumanity to man was on full display as the stuntman danced around in a pretend cage that couldn’t have held a 6-year-old child in “timeout” for longer than a minute. The MTV inspired video targeted an MTV generation with an MTV simplicity and banality that makes sense only to those rendered institutionally incapable of discerning reality from fiction. Incapable of thinking for themselves.

Be repulsed. Be angry. Support the war effort as endless as it is.

Meanwhile, back in Washington, an old man, a liar and a cheat, Sen. John McCain was busy fixing a little narrative problem in order to continue his endless quest for more war and more devastation.

How Do Barney Fife and Fidel Castro Factor Into the Biggest News Story of the Year?

by Scott Creighton

I wish to see if I can connect a few dots here, so bear with me.

Putting aside “ISIS™” for a moment and the “Big Story” about some talking head on MSNBC lying to folks (yeah, there’s some news for you) what are the biggest geopolitical trends in the news today? Is it the fact that Syriza, the new “Radical Left™” brand of 3rd Way centrist ideology (think “CHANGE™” circa 2008) seems to have forgotten what the term “odious debt” means?

In international law, odious debt, also known as illegitimate debt, is a legal theory that holds that the national debt incurred by a regime for purposes that do not serve the best interests of the nation, should not be enforceable. Such debts are, thus, considered by this doctrine to be personal debts of the regime that incurred them and not debts of the state. In some respects, the concept is analogous to the invalidity of contracts signed under coercion. Wiki

Is that the biggest story in the world today? Well, if you consider the fact that international debt has risen by 57 trillion dollars since the global economic terrorism of 2008, coupled with the fact that much if not ALL of that new additional debt may be declared odious were Greece to set the precedent, well, that could very well be the story of the year. The story of the decade or the millennium in fact.

But it isn’t, because they wont (“use us to implement the European programme” Varoufakis).

And the usually antagonistic ones, the Webster Tarpley’s of the “interwebs”, aren’t really calling for Syriza to live up to their campaign pledge and do that.

How about “ISIS™”? Now that the MTV music video director and their team made that “burning man” video, seems like all the world wants a piece of “ISIS™” butt.

We have senators and congressman lining up to get in front of anyone with a camera so they can pledge their undying devotion to autocratic, despotic regimes like those in Jordan, UAE, Bahrain and Qatar for the sole purpose of providing them weapons and training, all paid for with your tax dollars while they say they can’t afford to pay teachers here in the states.

No money for teachers or disabled folks but we got butt-loads of cash to heap on dictators from the Middle East to help bomb Syria into regime change. Funny how that works, ain’t it?

We have “progressive” TV personalities spending enormous amounts of their airtime proving what warmongering hawks they can be just like the neocons of yesteryear they pilloried for a decade.

We have the Obama administration, the President Peace Prize farce, presenting their own version, a hand-crafted document they expect to be passed without debate, authorizing war anywhere, anytime against anyone they say is supporting “ISIS™”. That new AUMF document, one usually crafted by congress, will be slapped on the desks of leading congressmen sometime today or tomorrow. It’s something this president has wanted since they created “ISIS™” now that the old one from 2001 is a bit sketchy considering the fact that it names al Qaeda as the enemy and we now call them “moderates” and are funding them in Syria.

And all of this is based on what? A ridiculous MTV-styled video custom made for the purpose of providing the pretext for what is happening right now and released on the very same day the King of Jordan was visiting Obama and congress looking for money to fight “ISIS™”. (I will write more about that video later this morning)

Are those the biggest stories in the world today?

No. Not in my opinion.

So what is? What is the one big story everyone knows about and no one is talking about and how does Barney Fife and Fidel Castro of all people fit into this? Have I gone crazy? Inquiring minds want to know.

Egyptian Ceasefire Agreement is Just Geopolitical Theater to Give Israel “international legitimacy”

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman calls for Israeli occupation of Gaza

——

When is a ceasefire deal not really a ceasefire deal?

We did not receive any official draft of this Egyptian proposal,” Sami Abu Zuhri, a senior Hamas official in Gaza.

Back in 2012 during Operation Pillar of Defense, the elected government of Egypt headed by Morsi, brokered a ceasefire agreement between the Palestinians and the Israelis which brought a legitimate end to Israel’s illegitimate attack.

It pissed off the Israelis and the White House but they had no options. Israel was being condemned openly by the rest of the world for their brutal attacks on civilian targets and the ceasefire deal backed them further into a corner.

Morsi did something seemingly undoable: He condemned the Israeli military action and supported the Palestinian people,” Shehata says, “and at the same time was actively involved and seen as the most likely broker for a truce.”

Although Hamas is the ruler of the Palestinian Gaza Strip, in the past it was never welcomed at the negotiating table. The United States and Israel won’t speak to Hamas, labeling it a terrorist organization.

But in this new Middle East, where many compliant Western-backed dictators are replaced with Islamist elected leaders, Morsi, Shehata says, became the only feasible mediator. He spoke to world leaders, from Iran, historic backers of Hamas, to the United States. And using his links with Hamas, an offshoot of the regional Muslim Brotherhood, he conveyed messages back and forth — all while taking a line very different from Egypt’s Western ally, the United States: blaming Israel for the aggression. NPR

Morsi used all of his leverage and his popularity among Muslims in the Middle East and was very public about the ceasefire negotiations process. A week into Israel’s attack, they had to agree to the deal and the bombs stopped raining down on Gaza.

Today’s deal is nothing like Morsi’s back in 2012. It’s geopolitical theater designed to give Israel’s brutal assault on civilians a thin veneer of credibility or “international legitimacy” as Mr. Netanyahu said. It’s theater crafted by the spin doctors and marketing gurus who think they cleverly fooling the rest of the world. They aren’t.
