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?

Scary (not really): Hillary Clinton’s “Nanna Nanna Boo Boo” Speech Demonizes Folks for “Thinking Outside the Norm”

by Scott Creighton

Well OK then.

Hillary Clinton’s team has apparently decided to counter all the horrible news that came out about her this past week regarding her “pay to play” policy at the State Department by pointing a finger at Donald Trump and proclaiming “nanna nanna boo boo, you’re racist doo doo”

That’s literally all they have. That’s it. That’s what they got. “Don’t pay attention to our Republican-leaning neocon-backed warmongering “Democratic Party” candidate’s VAST record of MAJOR criminal activity because… Trump knows some racists”

That’s it. That’s the campaign strategy, apparently scripted by the dim-witted middle school kids running her campaign.

This is nothing new, really. Whenever another Clinton family crime is rudely mentioned during this campaign, suddenly The Donald magically becomes even more racist than he was the day before and it’s always by some form of 6 degrees of separation:

“The Donald is supported by David Duke… ergo The Donald wants to shank all black people”

“There was a 6-pointed star on a Tweet The Donald reTweeted… ergo The Donald cooks Jews in his oven in Trump Tower”

The newest version of this trend was rolled out yesterday in the wake of all those revelations by the AP about Hillary Clinton setting up meets with donors to the Clinton Globalist Slush Fund Foundation and it deals with what they are now calling the “alt right” which apparently translates to “black, Latino and Jewish baby raping monsters”

On a side note, the only racist “baby raping monsters” I know of that have anything to do with this “election” were hired by Hillary Clinton to destabilize Libya and Syria by killing people of other faiths and… well… and raping babies. Talk about 6 degrees of separation. That’s like one degree. Or half a degree. At best it’s two degrees as our freedom fighters below seem to suggest.

That said, the “alt right” attack spewing from the Clintonistas today like Mika Brzezinski on Morning Joe, is quite stunning in it’s audacity.

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.

MAJOR SHIFT in Erdogan’s Relations with Imperialist US… and the Barzani Clan (yes, you read that right): Did He Sell Out to Greater Kurdistan?

by Scott Creighton

I don’t know what to think of this so I am going to put this info out there for you guys to consider and maybe you can let me know what you think.

I started my morning off in the usual way, skimming the Times, al Jazeera, the Post, HuffPuff, Fox “News”, Daily Blow… you know, the usual crap just to get a feel for the daily dose of excrement they are shoveling our way today, when I came across a story that made me stop and do a double-take:

Erdogan Aiding Coalition Partners in Cross-border Attack on “ISIS™” in Syria

What? I thought “ah, that’s just the Times doing their propaganda thing” until, I saw it again:

Turkey and U.S.-backed forces take on Islamic State border town in Syria

So I thought “oh, OK. The Times and the Post feeding off each others’ BS” so I decided to take a look at some Turkish papers in order to get some clarification:

LIVE: Turkish military, coalition forces launch ‘Euphrates Shield’ operation in Jarablus

There it is again. Now it has a name “Operation Euphrates Shield” but I dismissed it YET AGAIN because, AH… Hurriyet Daily is a Dogan Media Group paper, a Gulenist rag, so I figured I would check out the Daily Sabah and get the REAL SCOOP:

Wednesday’s anti-Daesh operation, called Euphrates Shield, aims to support U.S.-led coalition forces, strengthen Turkey’s border security by clearing away terrorist groups and maintain Syria’s territorial integrity.” Daily Sabah

Are you fucking kidding me? Recep Erdogan just survived a damn coup orchestrated from the Pentagon and US State Department in conjunction with the monied interests behind Fethullah Gülen and just recently he started bombing the CIA’s new darling freedom fighters in Syria… and now he’s teaming up with TEAM USA WORLD POLICE to literally invade Syria to stop the CIA’s “ISIS™”? The same “ISIS™” the coalition let leave Manbij a couple weeks ago so they could head north to this city?

Is that a joke?

But wait.. it gets worse. Much, much worse.

Syrian War Report – August 22, 2016: Deep Crisis in Eastern Syria (South Front video)

by Scott Creighton

It would appear the recent Israeli bombing of several targets inside the Gaza Strip was provided a convenient pretext when an al Qaeda-linked Palestinian group fired a useless homemade bottle rocket toward Sderot. Turns out, this same group is fighting against the legitimate government of Syria on behalf of US and Israeli interests in the ongoing regime change operation in that country.

“The Israeli Air Force conducted up to 30 airstrikes over the Gaza Strip overnight on August 22 after a rocket struck the Israeli border-city of Sderot. A half dozen people were reportedly wounded in Gaza due to these the Israel Air Force’s air strikes. Reports say that Aknef Beit Al-Maqdis, a Palestinian militant group linked to Al-Qaeda, was responsible for the attack on Sderot. The organization responsible for the rocket attack in Sderot on Sunday was Aknef Beit Al-Maqdis, which is a Palestinian militant group with close ties to Al-Qaeda. Aknef Beit Al-Maqdis was recently involved in the Syrian war by attacking pro-government forces in the Yarmouk Camp District of southern Damascus.

No casualties were reported in the Israeli town.” South Front

Lying Ryan Lochte and the Rio Robbery that Wasn’t – Brave Brave Sir Gunnar, Sir Gunnar Ran Away

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: The two swimmers pulled off the plane have admitted to authorities that Ryan Lochte lied to police and then fabricated a story to tell NBC News that Sunday morning. They said they all went around to the back of the gas station to use the bathroom but the door was locked so they broke it to get in to take a piss and the security guard walked up to them telling them they had to pay for the door. He was armed according to ESPN’s version of those two swimmers’ story, but he never pulled out his weapon. The owner of the station showed up, they paid approximately $70 US for the door and were allowed to leave.

UPDATE: X-ray images of the men returning to the Olympic Village through security screener appears to show wallets in their pockets. That would be their stolen wallets.

One sleazy self-absorbed sellout to another

Do you remember that story coming out of Libya in the early days of Hillary Clinton’s bloody regime change operation about the woman who claims to have been kidnapped and gang raped by scores of Gaddafi’s soldiers over a two day period? She said she escaped from them and then ran straight to a hotel where all the embedded press was staying so she could “tell her story” prior to getting medical attention, taking a shower or sitting in a corner in the fetal position crying herself to sleep.

Her story was bullshit. It never happened. She now lives in the US from what I understand, enjoying a comfortable life after being the focus of a phony “hearts and minds” campaign which sought to further demonize the beloved leader of a beautiful country so Hillary Clinton could murder him in cold blood and decimate Libya to the point where it isn’t recognizable anymore.

I can’t help but think about that story when I hear about Ryan Lochte and the Rio Robbery that wasn’t.

The New York Times Publishes More Lies About Ukraine in Baseless Hit-piece Against Donald Trump

by Scott Creighton

though they have yet to determine if he actually received the cash…” New York Times McCarthism Hit-piece on Donald Trump

It’s not listed as an opinion piece or even satire. It’s supposed to be news. All the news that’s fit to fabricate from the New York Times.

OBAMA 2

This allegation that Donald Trump’s campaign chair Paul Manafort took money to the tune of 12+ million bucks in illegal payments from President Viktor F. Yanukovych in Ukraine is ridiculous on it’s surface. When you dig a little deeper in the New York Times article (penned by ) what you find is a ludicrous counter-attack to Hillary’s own political corruption story, one designed to steal the headlines and relegate the story of her all-too-real systemic graft to the back pages.

“Handwritten ledgers show $12.7 million in undisclosed cash payments designated for Mr. Manafort from Mr. Yanukovych’s pro-Russian political party from 2007 to 2012, according to Ukraine’s newly formed National Anti-Corruption Bureau. Investigators assert that the disbursements were part of an illegal off-the-books system whose recipients also included election officials.” New York Times

Viktor Yanukovych was ousted in a U.S.-backed coup a couple years ago when the people of his country decided they didn’t want to be a part of the E.U. and the masters of the universe said that wasn’t to be allowed, like George Soros (see this as well) and Pierre Omidyar for example. Part of the deal they rejected was another crippling IMF “loan” and the subsequent austerity measures they demanded be imposed on the people in exchange for it.

 

  • Among the reasons Mr. Yanukovych turned away from signing political and trade accords with Europe in November was his unwillingness to carry out austerity measures and other reforms that the International Monetary Fund had demanded in exchange for a large assistance packageNew York Times

 

Yanukovych said “no” so of course, he had to go. Not only that, but his legacy and his life had to be soiled in perpetuity in the interests of the greater good (meaning the masters of the universe’s “greater good”) which makes him perfect fodder for this new bullshit anti-Trump hit-piece being put out by the New York Times.
