#JusticeForKurds – RT Goes All Out as Social Media Propagandists for New “Freedom Fighters” in Turkey, the Kurds

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: The Kurds just admitted they killed Turkish civilians in a destabilization terrorist attack last week, and RT want’s us to investigate Erdogan? Really?

Of course, this has NOTHING to do with the fact that the Turkish government has flat-out refused to allow the US, NATO and Israel to break off a piece of Turkey to give to the Greater Kurdistan project and they, along with the legitimate government of Syria, have refuse to recognize “Syrian Kurdistan”. Yeah, it has NOTHING to do with that, I’m sure.

I think we have already pretty well established the fact that the new big plan for the empire is the building of a new nation called Greater Kurdistan out of parts of Iraq, Turkey and Syria.

They are holding a “building Greater Kurdistan” conference right now and Syrian Kurds, along with a number of various “moderate” terrorist groups from parts unknown, have decided to announce they are forming Syrian Kurdistan, without anyone’s permission of course, busting themselves off a piece of someone else’s country.

Looks like the Turkey phase of the project is now moving to the front burner complete with all the usual support from the Mockingbird press. This time the manufacturing of consent for the anti-war crowd is coming from RT of all places.

Syrian Kurds Declare Autonomous Northern Region

(Any more questions?)

from People’s Voice

oh lookie there. could that be Greater Kurdistan taking shape?

Syria’s Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) officials meeting with Arabs and other northern Syria ethnic groups in Rmeilan, in Syria’s northeastern Hasakeh province, agreed on establishing area autonomy, short of declaring independence – acting perhaps with tacit US support.

Turkey remains adamantly opposed, a foreign ministry statement saying acting unilaterally has no validity.

Syrian UN envoy/head of its Geneva III delegation, Bashar al-Jaafari, said his government intends preserving the nation’s sovereign independence and territorial integrity.

“(B)etting on creating any kind of divisions among the Syrians will be a total failure,” he stressed. Separately, he ruled out meeting with chief opposition negotiator Mohammad Alloush – calling him a “terrorist” involved in bombing embassies and killing civilians…

Wednesday’s announcement comes on day three of Geneva III peace talks, Kurds excluded from participating, Lavrov calling them left out a “demonstration of weakness,” an obstacle to conflict resolution

Cemil Bayık, leader of Ankara car bomb culprit PKK: ‘Our aim is to topple Erdoğan, AK Party gov’t’

from Daily Sabah

Speaking to British daily The Times four days before the deadly car bomb that killed 35 civilians in the Turkish capital Ankara, Cemil Bayık, leader of the attack’s main culprit the PKK, said that now their main aim is to topple President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and the Justice and Development (AK) Party government.

Claiming that Turkey would never be a democratic country unless Erdoğan and the AK Party government is toppled, Bayık said that the PKK terror organization is the main obstacle between Erdoğan and his dreams from coming true, despite Turkey’s functioning democratic regime in a region caught up in turmoil and its electoral processes repeatedly have been confirmed free and fair by international monitors.

Bayık described their current activities in Turkey, which have started to show great resemblance to the tactics of extremist groups in Syria and Iraq targeting civilians with suicidal attacks, as a fight of “life and death.”

(After Russian withdrawal) UN special envoy believes in good outcome of inter-Syrian talks (for regime change opposition)

from Tass News Agency

UN Special Envoy on Syria Staffan de Mistura has said he is optimistic about the outcome of the resumed inter-Syrian talks in Geneva.

The migrant crisis, Russia’s actions and the Islamic State (a terrorist organization banned in Russia) have created an impetus for the talks, de Mistura said after meeting a delegation of the Syrian opposition represented by the Riyadh-formed High Negotiations Committee (HNC)…

He also repeated what he had said earlier on Tuesday regarding President Putin’s decision to withdraw the Russian Aerospace Forces from Syria. The UN special envoy hopes the decision will produce a positive impact on the Geneva talks aimed at reaching a political settlement in Syria and at peaceful political transition in that country.

Putin’s Withdrawal in Syria Weakens Hand of Government’s Negotiators: Threatens “even worse war than we have so far”

by Scott Creighton

How’s this for interesting?

Russian president, Vladamir Putin, has decided to pull his forces out of Syria this week while a number of interesting things have been taking place:

  1. New round of Syrian peace talks began yesterday
  2. Another terrorist bombing in Turkey by the Kurds
  3. U.S. House of Representatives call “ISIS™” actions in Syria and Iraq “genocide”
  4. U.S. backed “rebels” lob mortars at a news crew
  5. The Iraqi Kurdistan Regional Government has declared Turkey’s operations against the PKK and other Kurdish terrorists to be “genocide”

“I think that the task that was assigned to the Ministry of Defense and the armed forces as a whole has achieved its goal, and so I order the defense minister to start tomorrow withdrawing the main part of our military factions from the Syrian Arab Republic,” President Putin said

1. “Damascus warned that any discussion about removing Mr Assad would be a “red line”. US Secretary of State John Kerry and French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault condemned the comment from Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem as divisive and provocative.” Straits Times

2. “The March 13 terrorist attack in Ankara openly questions which path the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) will now take. On the one hand the PKK has created an image of civil war in the southeast with its attempt to impose “autonomy” through trenches and barricades; on the other hand it has now terrorized the west of the country with suicide bombers.” Hurriyet

3. “The resolution was voted on ahead of a congressionally mandated March 17 deadline for Secretary of State John Kerry and the White House to make a decision on whether to make such a declaration. The measure is an effort to force the administration’s hand on the issue, as the administration has so far declined to take an official position.” Fox News

4. “We were in the streets of Daraa city talking to local people five years since the war began, and our work there was cut short when a mortar was fired from opposition territory, landing on a building very close to us,” journalist Lizzie Phelan told RT by phone shortly after the incident.

The crew had to cut short the interview and leave the area.” RT

5. “Forty-five members of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) were killed in Turkish Air Force airstrikes in northern Iraq on Monday, the Turkish General Staff said in a statement on Tuesday.” Sputnik

It is also reported by SANA that more journalists were targeted by “ISIS™” a few days later near al-Shaddadi.

According to the Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, “There has been a significant turning point in the fight against terrorism,”

Does this seem like there has been a significant turning point reached in the fight against terrorism to you?

So what happened here?

It looks to me like the “Great Hero” of the anti-globalization movement, Vladamir Putin, has cut a regime change deal with ObamaGod of the Peace Prize and he is now siding with them against the people of Syria. I’m not sure there is any other way to see this move at this time.

Steve Lendman Pushes More Gulenist Regime Change Propaganda About Turkey

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Oh look. The brave “freedom fighters” in Syria are women… and KURDS… says Huffington Post (target demographic? what do you think?)

UPDATE: Just a reminder:ISIS™ Oil Continues to Flow to Israel While Turkish Stream Pipeline Deal Appears Dead

I’m starting to hate Steve Lendman.

Graham Fuller (foreground) and Turkish Muslim guru Fetullah Gülen who has dark ties to CIA and fanatical Jihadist groups worldwide.

Today Steve is screeching about Turkey shutting down more “free speech” because they targeted 3 CIA-linked publications, all owned by the same Gulenist corporation, for trying to destabilize the freely elected political party that is in power right now.

“Press freedom in Turkey is pure fantasy. Media operations critical of state policies risk regime takeover.

Independent journalists reporting information authorities want suppressed risk arrest, prosecution, imprisonment or assassination.

Last Friday’s takeover of Zaman and its English language Today’s Zaman edition was a serious blow to press freedom. World community and Western media reaction was deplorably mute.

Scant coverage followed Erdogan’s latest outrage. The New York Times and Wall Street Journal ignored his takeover of independent Cihan news agency

Istanbul-based Cihan was Turkey’s only independent news agency, part of Feza Publications, owner of Zaman until regime takeover.” Steve Lendman

Only a fool or a liar would classify Zaman, Today’s Zaman and Cihan News Agency as “independent” media outlets.

The Hillary Clinton emails: A record of imperialist crimes

by Tom Hall, WSWS

Last Monday, the US State Department published the last batch of declassified emails from a private, unsecured server used by Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during her tenure as secretary of state. This latest release draws to a close a year-long review by US intelligence agencies of 52,000 pages of Clinton emails, ostensibly motivated by concerns over possible leaks of classified material.

To date, more than 30,000 emails dating from Clinton’s four-year tenure as secretary of state have been released to the public. Clinton played a central role in the prosecution of aggressive wars in Afghanistan, Syria and Libya as well as the carrying out of drone assassinations and other illegal actions in a number of additional countries, including Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia. Yet in its extensive reporting of the email scandal, the American media has virtually ignored the actual content of these emails, which contain a wealth of information about the day-to-day functioning of the Clinton State Department.
