Is the Greater Kurdistan Project Dead? Kerry and Lavrov Declare “Kurds must remain a part of the Syrian state”

by Scott Creighton

Holy shit.

Very quietly Sec. of State John Kerry went over to Geneva and cut a deal with Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov on the state of the state of Syria. according to reports a number of issues were agreed upon but none so dramatic as the issue of Kurdish independence or what they call “Western Kurdistan”

Both diplomats agreed that the Syrian Kurds should remain in Syria.

“We are for a united Syria. We do not support an independent Kurd initiative,” Kerry said, pointing out that the American forces have been engaging in cooperation with “a component” of the Kurdish forces on a “very limited basis.”

On his part, Lavrov said, “Kurds must remain a part of the Syrian state, part of resolving the problem, and not a factor that will be used to split Syria apart.”

The contacts with the Kurdish minority in Syria were made in a “close cooperation” with Turkey, Kerry said. Turkey considers the Kurdish YPG militia, which is part of the US-backed SDF rebels, one of the targets of its ongoing incursion in Syria.

We understand the sensitivities of our friends in Turkey with respect to this,” Kerry added.” RT

“(O)ur friends in Turkey”? We just tried to overthrow Erdogan in a violent coup and now Kerry describes him as one of “our” friends?

How quickly the worm turns. The US and Russia are now echoing the words of Recep Erdogan from Aug. 24th of this year:

Turkey is determined for Syria to retain its territorial integrity and will take matters into its own hands if required to protect that territorial unity. President Recep Erdogan of Turkey

Yeah, that worm turns quickly doesn’t it?

UPDATE to my “MAJOR SHIFT” Article from This Morning: Biden Seems to Suggest a Deal Was Reached with Erdogan

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: As expected, the fake alternative websites are saying this proves Erdogan staged the coup

I still don’t know what to make of this.

We know for a fact the US runs the so-called Free Syrian Army as a defacto irregular warfare proxy army designated to destabilize Syria in preparation for regime change. And we also know Turkey’s incursion into Syrian territory in support of the FSA (supposedly targeting the same “ISIS™” proxy army we allowed to leave Manbij and head north to the city Turkey is now effectively invading) is opposed by the Syrian government from reports from SANA News Agency. We know President Erdogan met with our puppet dictator from “Iraqi Kurdistan”, Barzani and then he was allowed to meet with several other leading political figures in Turkey before going today to meet with the Turkish parliament and leading political Kurdish MPs as well. And we know that Joe Biden is in Turkey today doing the same. All that we know.

But what I didn’t mention in this morning’s article is worth consideration:

“Speaking in Ankara, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan announced that the attack on Jarabulus — the last stretch of northern border territory held by the jihadists — had begun at 4 a.m. on Wednesday, targeting “terror groups which constantly threaten our country.”…

Erdoğan added that the operation would also target Kurdish fighters in Syria

Turkey is determined for Syria to retain its territorial integrity and will take matters into its own hands if required to protect that territorial unity,” Erdoğan warned on Wednesday.

The name of the operation suggested as much: dubbed “Euphrates Shield,” the campaign clearly aims to enforce Turkey’s “red line” against the Kurds, as well as driving ISIL away from its border. When the SDF moved a few miles north towards Jarabulus on Monday, Turkey fired artillery shots at them while Turkish-backed Syrian rebels gathered at the border…

Syrian Kurdish leaders responded with anger. Salih Muslim, the leader of the Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD), wrote on Twitter that Turkey was now in the “Syrian quagmire” and would be defeated like the Islamic State. Redur Xelil, a spokesperson for the YPG militia, denounced Turkey’s intervention as an act of “blatant aggression.”..

In Ankara on Wednesday, Biden launched a charm offensive, praising the bravery of the Turkish people during the coup attempt, lauding their efforts against the Islamic State and declaring that the country had “no better friend” than the United States. He also warned the Syrian Kurds that they would lose U.S. support if they did not retreat to the Euphrates’ eastern bank.” Politico

So it would appear that a grand bargain may have been struck between Turkey and the US to keep the developing Kurdish state in Syria confined to east of the river. And though Erdogan says he respects the territorial integrity of the nation of Syria, how does that fit in with his Euphrates red-line? I wonder if the US will quietly hand over Gulen as part of this deal to placate Erdogan, who, since the failed coup, has solidified his power in Turkey and announced himself as a man not to be trifled with to the US.

Does this mean that the Kurds we just helped take Manbij are going to be forced back across the river? Is this a victory in part for Erdogan and Turkey or just another twist in the Shakespearean tragedy playing out in Syria?

I don’t know.

I guess some might say keeping half of Syria is better than losing it all. Just ask the Libyans if they would take that deal right now.

Still, I don’t think Erdogan has any more business negotiating that deal from Turkey than we do from D.C. or Putin does from Moscow.

Anyway, just thought I would toss this out there.

The Perversion of the unDNC Convention: Part 2 – Clinton’s New Dems Promoting a New McCarthyism (you can’t make this stuff up)

by Scott Creighton

(Part 1 of a two part article on the perversion that is the unDNC convention this week can be found here)

Da Ebil Ruskies are Colluding with Da Ebil Donald to Deny Saint Hillary the White House” Clinton campaign and their sock-puppets in the mass media.

Neoliberal Hillary Clinton, the nominee of my former party, has a long history of agitating against the popular and elected government of Vladimir Putin in an effort to force a regime change in the country that was once a neoliberal feeding frenzy under the drunken eye of Boris Yeltsin. That is an uncontroversial statement.

Lest anyone forget, Hillary Clinton did her level best to disrupt the Russian elections back in 2011 and when that failed, she attempted to foment a color revolution in the country by making a color revolution specialist the US Ambassador to Russia in 2012.

“Want to know why so many Russians hated Boris Nemtsov? Here’s a video of him paying a visit on U.S. Ambassador to Russia, Michael Anthony McFaul, just after McFaul took office back in 2012. It’s well understood here and in Russia, that McFaul’s task was to attempt to instigate a color revolution in Russia from day one.

Most Russia-watchers are diplomats, or specialists on security and arms control. Or Russian culture. I am neither. I can’t recite Pushkin by heart. I am a specialist in democracy, anti-dictatorial movements, and revolutions” (emphasis added). Michael Anthony McFaul

“(Hillary) Clinton noted that McFaul, who is a specialist in democratic transition – a Kommersant headline from January 11 touted him as a “color revolution specialist” – is uniquely suited for his new post, given Russia’s current climate.” Russia Profile

So in comes the color revolution specialist and one of the first to meet and greet the neoliberal scum, is Boris Nemtsov. Go figure.” Scott Creighton, March 1, 2015

(It should be noted that Boris Nemtsov was a pure neoliberal who wanted Hillary Clinton to help set him up as the next Boris Yeltsin in Russia and when that failed, they tried a mini-false flag operation, his shooting in early 2015, as a means to further destabilize Moscow. It failed.)

That is the backdrop for you informed voters out there as the likes of Joe Scarborough parrot the ridiculous and completely baseless claim that Vladimir Putin is behind the hacking of the unDNC emails and the leak of them prior to the convention this week.

The truth is, Hillary did it, not Vlad the Destroyer of Worlds. As if that really mattered.

The Coalition Bombing of Civilians in Manbij Syria Was No Accident (and they weren’t targeting “ISIS”)

by Scott Creighton

“We have now have momentum in this fight and clear results on the ground… We must ensure that our partners on the ground (freedom fighter Kurds) have what they need to win the fight and then hold, rebuild, and govern their territory (“Rojava”),” Sec. of Defense Ash Carter, today

The coalition bombing in Syria this past week was not a one off mistake where they “mistook” women and children in a village for “ISIS”.

Given the fog of war and our complicit media servants here in the states, it’s understandable how more of our so-called “alternative anti-war” news outlets haven’t picked up on this yet, but in reality what happened appears to be a sustained attack on a civilian area carried out by US and French warplanes over a two day period.

To me it looks like they have given up on the “ISIS” pretense and are clearing out a problematic areas for the Kurds to claim and occupy as part of what they call Rojava, or “Western Kurdistan”, part of Greater Kurdistan (something we aren’t supposed to speak of)

First, let’s make what happened very clear: there were several attacks on this area over the course of two days during which as many as 200 civilians were killed, mostly women and children. It was a slaughter. You might even call it a “cleansing” of the area north of Manbij.

Ataturk Airport Bombing ala Gladio 2.0, Steals Headlines from Benghazi/CIA Commission Report

by Scott Creighton

You can always count on “ISIS™” to strike at the most opportune moment for Western interests. This is a pattern that has been well established in recent “ISIS™” history.

When we started loosing control of our puppet regime in war-torn Libya and the people started rising up to kick our corrupt cronies to the curb, “ISIS™” suddenly showed up and thus we had all the justification we needed to start bombing again.

It works something like this:

https://willyloman.files.wordpress.com/2015/08/big-picture.jpg?w=252&h=216

When globalist interests wanted Japan to tear-up their peace constitution making way for Obama’s “pivot to Asia”, “ISIS™” decided to make a ridiculous beheading video featuring Hapless Haruna which was so badly Photoshoped, not only did Fox News have to admit it was a fake, but the Japanese people started up a bad Photoshop contest making fun of the “news’ story.

On Dec. 25th, 2014, I entered the contest with this effort. Notice how it pulls “ISIS™” into the all important War on Christmas? Subtle, huh?

santa

I think I should have won but since I’m not Japanese and since I made it with Autocad and not Photoshop, I was disqualified. Racist bastards.

Truth is, there is a VERY long history of “ISIS™” popping up just where they are needed to justify whatever the CIA or the MIC or NATO or Obama wants at the moment. Unless you are brain-dead or a total shill (or coward), you cannot deny it.

Washington to Moscow: Stop Targeting al-Qaeda in Syria – You’ll Kill Our Moderates!

(“Stop killing our moderate terrorists. And leave al Qaeda alone!” President Peace Prize to the Russians. Wow.)

by Daniel McAdams

The Associated Press is reporting this afternoon that the Obama Administration has requested that the Russians cease and desist from bombing al-Qaeda’s Nusra Front in Syria because Washington’s “moderate” rebels are fighting together with al-Qaeda in Syria and any attack on al-Qaeda could kill Washington’s “moderates.”

The Obama Administration thus continues with the fiction that there are completely separate, vetted, moderate rebels who are dedicated to creating an inclusive, multi-cultural and multi-confessional, secular, and democratic Syria as soon as both ISIS and the Assad government are defeated.

The fiction is repeated constantly, in the manner of all state propaganda, by straight-faced US White House and State Department spokespersons. “Who are you going to believe, me or your lying eyes?” is the order of the day.

Washington admits that its moderates are training with, integrated with, sharing weapons with, and fighting alongside affiliates of those who attacked the US on 9/11 and no one had better dare to attack al-Qaeda lest they harm these moderates.

US Troops Seen Wearing Patch of Kurdish YPG Death Squads in Syria (that’s SYRIA… not “Rojava”)

by Scott Creighton (H/T Penny)

Kurds generally consider Rojava to be one of the four parts of a greater Kurdistan, which also includes parts of eastern and southeastern Turkey (Northern Kurdistan), northern Iraq (Southern Kurdistan), and northwestern Iran (Eastern Kurdistan).[20]

Just a quick note:

It’s being reported that some of our Special Operations troops in Syria who are assisting the Kurds in their effort to bust off a piece of the country for their own, are now wearing arm patches of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), a group that Amnesty International accused of committing ethnic cleansing campaigns throughout northern Syria.

kurd patch 1

Here is a pic of the YPG flag.

People's Protection Units Flag.svg

Rudaw, Kurdish publication, reports the news this way:

At least one of the US special forces soldiers advising the Kurdish-led Syrian alliance fighting the Islamic State (ISIS) was photographed wearing the insignia of the Kurdish Protection Units (YPG), which the Pentagon says is common practice under such circumstances. 

“Special operations forces, when they operate in certain areas, do what they can to, if you will, blend in with the community to enhance their own protection, their own security,” explained Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook on Thursday.” Rudaw

What Rudaw wont tell you is this: the YPG are vicious death squads who are actively ethnically cleansing northern Syria making ready their new nation, built by Barack Obama, Greater Kurdistan.

And now apparently we are making our troops wear YPG patches on their arms. Sometimes I’m glad my father didn’t live to see this shit.
