KurdISIS™ (H/T Penny) Retreats Across Euphrates River – Erdogan Attacks ISIS™ and the Kurds Retreat: What Does That Tell You?

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: MoA blog continues with their Erdogan-bashing campaign suggesting “ISIS” and Erdogan cut a deal and the poor Kurds were too ambitious and trusting of Papa Biden. Suggests this is all a plot by Recep ” To recreate an Ottoman empire which would include at least north Syria and north Iraq”. Funny isn’t it, how he accuses Erdogan of doing what the Kurds are doing? Interestingly enough, the first comment on his site says this “The “Neo-Ottoman” meme is just more of the usual Zionist Bullshit. Surprised to see it surfacing here

I’m not.

Are you paying attention or is Donald Trump’s immigration “pivot” too compelling right now?

It’s difficult for people to understand what’s happening in Syria at the moment in terms of Turkey and I completely understand that. I’ve been covering the situation over there for 5+ years and it’s still difficult to keep it all straight. I mean, if André Vltchek, a man who has worked in Turkey for 20 years and published multiple books on the subject doesn’t get it, why should we. Turkey is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma and it seems nobody can forecast their actions.

However, that is not too say there aren’t clues presenting themselves as the situation unfolds and one very key piece of the puzzle that seems to be absent from most analytical work on the subject, I think, could bring much of the confusion into focus: KurdISIS™ (H/T Penny)

But perhaps there is a key. That key is Russian Greater Kurdistan national interest.”

Over at common Dreams, the confusion is evident: U.S.-Backed Turkish Offensive in Syria Targets U.S.-Backed Kurds (not ISIS)

As difficult as it is to wrap your head around Turkish politics, I don’t think this particular development is that confusing at all if you’re willing to simply open your eyes and see our new glorious “freedom fighters” in Syria for what they really are.

Founding Director of the George W. Bush Institute Backs Hillary Clinton: Says She has the “right values” for Him

by Scott Creighton

uhhhhh… Jesus. As if we needed more proof that Hillary Clinton is the neocon candidate for 2016, here we go again:

James Glassman, who is also the founding director of the George W. Bush Institute at the former president’s library in Dallas, told MSNBC Monday evening that Clinton is “by far the superior candidate.”

“She has the experience. She’s got the character. She has the values,” Glassman said. “She is the kind of candidate I support and that, as I say, millions of republicans are supporting.” Politico

Yes. Hillary Clinton has the values to win her the support of yet another neocon from the Bush/Cheney criminal empire gang.

From 1996 to 2008, Glassman was a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C

In an interview in 2009, he put forward a case that in the long run the Iraq War will prove to have been a positive decision

The George W. Bush Institute is another neocon think-tank pushing school privatization, regime change operations , war with North Korea, tearing down the borders between the US, Canada and Mexico on behalf of Big Business… and other neoliberal ideology agendas.

Well you got to hand it to Glassman: he knows Hillary Clinton doesn’t he? She certainly shares the values of the George W. Bush Institute.

More anti-Russian propaganda from the New York Times

by Barry grey, WSWS (art added by AE)

McCarthy era propaganda

The New York Times has been spearheading a media campaign to demonize Russian President Vladimir Putin and create an atmosphere of anti-Russian hysteria. This is in preparation for a sharp escalation of US military violence in the Middle East and stepped-up preparations for war against Moscow and Beijing.

Notice the name of the author

Using unsubstantiated assertions, political amalgams and outright lies in a manner reminiscent of McCarthyism, the Times has published virtually daily articles, editorials and columns asserting, along with Russian “aggression” in Syria and Ukraine, that the Kremlin organized the hacking of the Democratic National Committee’s computers in order to embarrass Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and tip the election in favor of Republican Donald Trump.

The claim—presented by the Clinton campaign, the Times and much of the US media as indisputable fact—is that Trump is a political ally, if not a direct agent, of Putin. This allegation has become the focus of an attack by Clinton and the Democrats on the fascistic Trump from the right. It has been used to line up former CIA officials and Republican neo-conservatives deeply implicated in the invasion of Iraq, torture and other crimes of the Bush administration, along with an expanding list of billionaire financiers and CEOs, in support of Clinton.

There are precedents for such exercises in state propaganda in the guise of journalism. They have all ended with mass killings, the toppling of governments and, in many cases, the murder of government leaders portrayed as the incarnation of evil—Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi, for example.

Ragin John McCain’s Regime Change NGO Kicked Out of Russia

by Scott Creighton

This is fun.

John McCain has been running a regime change NGO in Russia for some time now and it’s finally been officially told to pack it’s bags and get the hell out of Moscow.

The Russian Justice Ministry has put the International Republican Institute (IRI) chaired by US Senator John McCain and Media Development Investment Fund on the list of foreign and international nongovernmental organizations whose activity is recognized undesirable in Russia. ITAR Tass News Agency

You might recall Ragin John getting all “buddy buddy” with neo-Nazis in Ukraine prior to and during that color revolution.

Ten pictures that show Ukraine's protests are filled with toxic Neo-Nazi groups

Mr. Nazi’s political affiliations are pretty remarkable. Some of you might recall his close relationship with various Vietnamese businesses around the same time he was blocking efforts by Vietnam war vets to get the POWs returned from that hell hole.

His NGO being banned from Russia also puts him in pretty rare company.

“The Prosecutor General’s Office earlier said five foreign organizations were undesirable in Russia. The NGOs, which have been included in the list of the Justice Ministry, are the National Endowment for Democracy, the OSI Assistance Foundation, the Open Society Foundation, the U.S. Russia Foundation for Economic Advancement and the Rule of Law and the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs.” ITAR Tass

We can expect John to go “Full McCarthy” after this development, I promise you that. That should put him right in line with Killary.

In-fighting Among Our Glorious New Freedom Fighters, The Kurds : Ibrahim Biro Threatens the West – Don’t Support the Wrong Kurds

by Scott Creighton

Who is going to be in charge of the biggest chunk of President Obama’s new country, Greater Kurdistan? Who will preside over the unveiling ceremony of the great statue of President Peace Prize? Someone from the Great Ruling Barzani family or someone else, some Baathist someone else? Only time and bloodshed can tell.

Watching the Kurds fight among themselves, squabble I should say, is funny. They expose themselves daily and no one is paying attention.

The Kurdish National Council was founded in Hawler on 26 October 2011, under the sponsorship of Kurdish Regional Government President Massoud Barzani..” Wiki

Take for instance what Ibrahim Biro, the head of Syria’s Kurdish National Council, said Wednesday about the PYD, the Syrian arm of the terrorist PKK group:

They’re exploiting the [international] fight against the ISIL terrorist group to attack their opponents,” he said.

In recent months, the PYD has reportedly indulged in the ethnic cleansing of areas under its control, arbitrarily detained its political opponents and forced local residents to fight on its behalf.

Biro went on to assert that western countries tended to overlook rights breaches committed by the PYD in northern Syria — a policy he said “facilitates the group’s ongoing domination of the region”. World Bulletin, Aug. 17, 2016

How about that. Here we have a Kurd in Syria openly admitting that at least one faction of the Greater Kurdistan project is being aided and abetted by the United States as they ethnically cleanse the parts of Syria they want for themselves and as they detain and erase political opponents of their future rule. He also states that their so-called fight against ISIS™ is a crock of shit, that’s it’s simply a pretext for them to use to be able to move through Syria raiding and looting and killing local civilians so they can carve themselves a piece of the country for their own Greater Kurdistan.

Imagine that. A prominent Kurdish political leader right there in the country saying EXACTLY what Penny and myself (and WAY TO FEW OTHERS) have been saying for well over a year. Only, he goes on to threaten the Western nations that they better not support the left-leaning Kurds as opposed to the Barzani clan Kurds. Say’s we will “regret it” if we do.

George Carlin speech at the National Press Club (May 13, 1999)

by Scott Creighton

His description of how politicians deal publicly with various crises in their lives, the language they use to avoid taking responsibility for their actions, is a perfect chronologically accurate description of how the Clinton email story played out. Later in the Q&A session he’s asked about Bill bombing Yugoslavia and he explains how he thinks our system is circling the drain and that he sits back and watches it rooting for the inevitable collapse. Kinda like the Giant Meteor 2016 campaign if you ask me.

He’s still the smartest comic this country ever produced and I personally wish he were still around to watch it all circling the drain today. Can you imagine the field day he would be having with this shit now?

George Carlin, 1999, now respirationally challenged since 2008.

Pentagon Scrambles Fighter Jets to Stop Syrian Air-force from Bombing Our Glorious Kurds

by Scott Creighton

The Pentagon embedded Special Operations troops, something like 300 of them a few weeks back, within the rank and file of the new freedom fighters, our Glorious Kurds (a.k.a. PKK/YPG terrorists as everyone else calls them)

They did that so the Syrians and the Russians wouldn’t attack the Kurds as they terrorize the countryside looking to bust off a piece of Syria for Greater Kurdistan.

Now the Syrians are openly bombing the Kurds and according to sources, getting “a little too close” to US troops.

Looks like the little boy in the ambulance psyop wasn’t enough motivation to get all the liberals behind the “bomb Syria for the CHILDREN!!!” campaign so they may end up throwing a couple troops under the bus just to make sure Obama gets his green light for more humanitarian war.

Kinda sad all these troops signed up to fight The War on Terrorism and they may end up dying fighting alongside PKK terrorists.
