ERDOGAN SEIZES NORTHERN SYRIA: WAR WITH ASSAD JUNIOR NOW IMMINENT 3-31-2018

The following story is why I write this blog. It is going to have such a massive impact on the Middle East. It must be viewed in the context of several hundred thousand HAMAS supporters now storming Israel’s southern border, as well as Trump’s decision to run away from Syria as fast as possible. I said waaaaay back in the beginning of Turkey’s invasion of Northern Syria, under the fig leaf of fighting “Kurdish Terrorism,” that Erdogan’s true goal was the recreation of the Ottoman Empire. I also said he was bat poop crazy, a true believer and on a mission from God. Erdogan has now proven conclusively, even without his statement about forming a five million strong “Islamic Army” to conquer Jerusalem, that he will see the entire Middle East explode in fire and blood to achieve his goals. Assad Junior will NEVER accept turning Northern Syria into a Turkish colony. Turkey’s statement makes war inevitable between Syrian military forces and Turkey’s military forces and proxies. War is now inevitable, with the only consideration being when Turkey’s and Syria’s military forces directly engage in combat.

Congress makes Afrin part of Turkish province

The Afrin Liberation Congress, held under Turkey’s auspices following the capture of the region of Afrin in Syria by Turkish and Free Syrian Army forces, has announced that the region will be governed as part of the Turkish province of Antakya, independent news site T24 said .

The region will also establish a 450-person police force, the congress decided, and a governor and local governor will be appointed by Turkey’s central government.

Around 100 individuals from the region took part in the congress in the Turkish city of Gaziantep, and elected a 35-person assembly made up of 24 Kurds, eight Arabs, one Alawite, one Yezidi and one Turkmen, spokesperson Hasan Shindi said.

“Turkey here is proceeding with a dual structure,” legal scholar Vahap Coşkun was quoted as saying.

“On the one hand, it is highlighting a delegation chosen by representatives of the people there and they are taking a role in the everyday administration (of the area). On the other, Turkey is appointing one of its own bureaucrats there in order to achieve general co-ordination.”

However, according to international law, the province must continue to follow Syrian law as it remains legally part of Syria.

UNDERSTANDING RUSSIA AND PUTIN 3-26-2018

Given the nature of today’s events related to Russia and the US, I feel it is vital that I post this video giving the “Russian side.” The massive propaganda wave targeting both Russia and Putin may have crossed the Rubicon and made a military conflict between the USA, NATO and the EU against Russia and Putin inevitable.  If so, we are going to find out just how bad Obama the Traitor destroyed our military, and how combat effective both Chinese and Russian military forces. It is a fact that only a few days ago Putin listed, in great detail, just what types of new weapons they have, and how effective they really are. Some may see this as a threat, but I see it as a final, desperate attempt to warn the US what the final result, the final military result, will be from any actual combat resulting from the current diplomatic crisis.

It is clear to me with the appointment of the neo con warmonger, supporter of the 2003 Iraqi invasion, John Bolton to be Trump’s NSA head, the decision has been made to go to war. Further, given the operational condition of the USA military, we are likely to suffer an historic military defeat at the hands of Russia, or China, or both. We have seen multiple public comments from senior Russian and Chinese military and government officials indicating they now regard actual war with the USA as possible, if not imminent.

 As ‘Final Blocks Of Tyranny’ Are Cemented Into Place, Creepy Feeling Of Impending Doom Spreads To ‘Deep State’

– What Do They Know We Don’t Know? Prepare Now For TEOTWAWKI Or Forever Hold Your Peace

By Stefan Stanford – All News Pipeline – Live Free Or Die

Here is what to expect.

With the Examiner story showing that a ‘mass awakening’ to impending disaster is happening at least with those who are paying attention in Washington DC, Survival Dan asks a great question in his new story: “What will the end be like for me if I don’t prepare?”

With that question partially answered in what we’re now witnessing in the total collapse of socialist Venezuela where liberal policies of mass destruction have led a trail of death and starvation across their country, think about how your life would be with:

1. No clean water coming out of the faucets to drink.
2. No hot or cold water to shower, bathe with or wash your hands.
3. No washing machines or dishwashers to clean your clothes or dirty dishes.
4. No flushing toilets.
5. No heat or air conditioning, not even fans.
6. No light at night.
7. No grocery stores or home-delivered food, no restaurants, no food period.
8. No trash pick up of waste that will mound up and collect strong diseases.
9. No medications, especially antibiotics, or simply over the counter remedies either.
10. No communications; no internet, no TV, no radio, no clue what is going on.

TRUMP SIGNS BUDGET BILL AND SELLS US ALL OUT 3-23-2018

The more I read about this “budget bill,” the clearer the magnitude of the disaster Trump has suffered becomes clearer. It is a decisive defeat for Trump. It shatters any relationship he had with his deplorable base. It gives the Marxist Democrats VIRTUALLY EVERYTHING THEY WANTED, EXCEPT FOR A FINAL RESOLUTION OF THE DACA DREAMERS.

I mean the list is endless. It has NO MONEY FOR THE BORDER WALL. It funds planned parenthood. It doubles H-1 visas. The list just goes on and on and on.

Trump is finished. He is now in exactly the same situation that Bush senior was in when he flip flopped on his “Read my lips: no new taxes.” Bush senior refused to honor that statement and pledge, and he paid the price by losing to Clinton.

I think the RINOS decided they needed to lose both the House and the Senate in November in order to protect the uniparty. Make no mistake: THIS IS A DECISIVE WIN FOR THE DEEP STATE, THE UNIPARTY, THE FAKE NEWS MEDIA, THE MARXIST DEMOCRATS AND THE SNOWFLAKES.

TRUMP WILL NOW BE HOUNDED BY SEX ABUSE CLAIMS. He will eventually be impeached, once the Democrats take control of the house and senate. Trump is finished, since he has no support base left. The time between now and November will be filled with an administration in total chaos, a feckless POTUS, and no ability to get anything done. And it is all because Trump let Lying Ryan, Mitch the Bitch, Pelosi and Schumer hang him out to dry. Exactly why would Trump’s enemies back off now, since they have him by his genitalia.

The Marxists are going to win in November. They are going to impeach Trump, and then they are going to impose a Marxist dictatorship, no holds barred, and nothing held back, starting in January of 2019.

Trump screwed us, and that is all there is to it. I suggest we all use the time left in 2018 to make whatever preparations for dealing with the Marxist dictatorship that will start in 2019. The Marxists got burned when Hellary the Shrew crashed and burned. They will not forgive. They will not forget. And they will do whatever it takes to make sure somebody like Trump can never, ever, come to power again. You can write that in blood, our blood.

For more details on just how bad the budget bill Trump signed is here is the link.

http://thegatewaypundit.com/2018/03/ryan-pelosi-uniparty-easily-passes-record-1-3-trillion-omnibus-that-spits-in-face-of-gop-voters/

The Paul Ryan-Nancy Pelosi Uniparty easily passed the record $1.3 trillion omnibus bill on Thursday.

The final vote was 256 to 167.

The bill funds all of the Democrat pet projects and spends less than .1% on the border security barriers and no wall.

Conservative Mark Meadows and the Freedom Caucus voted against the outrageous Republican Omnibus.

Meadows pointed out the giant flaws of the plan:
– Record spending levels
– No wall/border security
– Obamacare intact
– Funds Planned Parenthood
– Sanctuary Cities funded
– Barely 24 hours to read a 2,300 page bill

Rep. Meadows then encouraged President Trump to veto the bill.

This will likely be the end of the GOP majorities.
You can’t continue to spit on the voters and expect them to keep coming out to support you.

Trump says he’s signed $1.3 trillion spending bill into law despite being ‘unhappy’ about it

  • Trump says he signed a $1.3 trillion spending bill into law despite a veto threat.
  • The about-face on a possible veto came a day after White House officials had said Trump would sign the legislation despite his misgivings.
  • Trump is irked about the immigration proposals included in the legislation.

President Donald Trump said he signed the $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill into law Friday, despite a veto threat and provisions he says he is “unhappy” about.

The president approved the legislation to fund the government through September for national security reasons, as it authorizes a major increase in military spending that he supports. But he stressed that he did so reluctantly.

Trump slammed the rushed process to pass the more than 2,200-page bill released only Wednesday. The president said he was “disappointed” in the legislation and would “never sign another bill like this again.”

“We’re very proud of many of the items that we’ve been able to get. We’re very disappointed that in order to fund the military, we had to give up things where we consider in many cases them to be bad or them to be a waste of money. But that’s the way unfortunately right now the system works,” Trump said at the White House on Friday. He added that he “looked very seriously” at a veto, but his support for the military spending levels “overrode” his concerns about the bill.

Trump teased a veto a day after the White House had said he would sign the legislation despite his misgivings. He raised the risk of a government shutdown only hours before the midnight Friday deadline. Then the president, who enjoys creating tension and drama, announced he would not veto the bill in an event carried on live television.

Trump highlighted the portions of the bill he supports: the nearly $80 billion increase in defense spending, a $1.6 billion boost to border security funding and a cash injection to fight the opioid epidemic. The border money will go mostly toward surveillance technology and fencing similar to structures that already exist on the southern border. The amount of funding came in far below what the president wanted.

In a tweet Friday morning, Trump said he was “considering a VETO” because the proposal does not extend protections for hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants or fully fund his proposed border wall.

THE CULTURAL WAR ON GUNS 3-22-2018

THE CULTURAL WAR ON GUNS

I think people are not understanding how the gun grabbers really plan to go after guns. They are unleashing a media, public relations, and anti-gun cultural agenda. The result of this operation is not only to seek Federal and state gun control measures, but to get corporations to adopt an anti-gun agenda. You don’t need to ban guns, if you convince enough corporations to stop selling guns and ammo. We have seen Dick’s sporting goods and several other store chains adopt a de-facto anti-gun agenda by no longer selling guns and ammo.

This story is about one of the major chains, Kroeger, or Fred Meyer up here in the Pacific Northwest phasing out all guns and ammo sales. The result will be to limit places you can buy guns and ammo. Again, the gun grabbers don’t have to “ban guns and ammo,” if they can make it more difficult, or even impossible to find a store that sells guns and ammo. Granted, one result of this action by the “main line stores,” will be to concentrate guns and ammo sales in smaller, more independent stores. In that sense, it has just made it more difficult, but still not impossible. I am saying we are now under siege, with gun rights, and Second Amendment rights under widespread attack. Of course, the idea is to harass gun owners by making it more difficult to exercise your Second Amendment rights.
One year from now, it will be much harder, in terms of locations and availability to buy guns and ammo, and this is even without the 21 and older age bans.

Fred Meyer phasing out sales of all guns and ammunition

Friday, March 16th 2018

PORTLAND, Ore. — Fred Meyer stores will begin phasing out sales of all guns and ammunition, a spokesperson for the company confirmed late Friday evening.

Earlier this month, Fred Meyer announced they’ll stop selling guns and ammo to anyone under 21 years of age. They’ve also confirmed they’ll pull all magazines that showcase assault-type weapons.

Here’s a statement from the company regarding the decision to stop selling guns altogether:

Fred Meyer has made a business decision to exit the firearms category. We are currently working on plans to responsibly phase out sales of firearms and ammunition. We made the decision early last week after evaluating changing customer preferences and the fact that we’ve been steadily reducing this category in our Fred Meyer stores over the last several years due to softening consumer demand. More recently we have been transitioning away from gun departments as a result of our ongoing work to optimize space in our Fred Meyer stores. The firearms category represents about $7 million annually of Fred Meyer’s revenue – and sales continue to decline.

Here is a second link to an Oregon gun grabbing group that seeks to ban “assault rifles,” in Oregon. They plan to file a ballot measure that will do so.

The link is here.

http://katu.com/news/local/oregon-initiative-would-outlaw-assault-weapons-unless-guns-are-registered-with-police

A recently filed Oregon initiative would make manufacturing, importing, possessing, purchasing or selling an assault weapon or large capacity magazine a crime — with only a few exceptions.

If passed, Oregon Initiative 42 would only allow owners to keep their assault weapons and large capacity magazines if they register them with Oregon State Police.

“I don’t like to use that phrase, but this time, when they say they’re coming to get your guns, this actually would be coming to get your guns,” said Oregon state Rep. Bill Post, R-Keizer.

Ceasefire Oregon is one of the groups behind the initiative and Executive Director Penny Okamoto says that’s not the case.

“We’ve heard this for 20 years: ‘They’re coming for our guns; they’re coming for our guns.’ Obama was coming for our guns. Ultimately, it never happened,” Okamoto said.

If the initiative goes into effect, anyone who owns an assault weapon or large capacity magazine will be required to remove them from the state, sell the items, surrender the items to a law enforcement agency for destruction, render the assault weapon permanently inoperable or, if eligible, register the assault weapon or large capacity magazine with Oregon State Police within 120 days.

Anyone who moves into Oregon with an assault weapon would have 120 days to surrender it to law enforcement, transfer it to a licensed firearm dealer, render it permanently inoperable or register it.

Unlawful possession or transfer of an assault weapon or large capacity magazine would be a Class B felony.

In order to register an assault weapon under the act, the owner would need to submit a form to the Oregon State Police with the owner’s name and address and identification number of the assault weapon. The owner must also allow police to conduct a criminal background check to confirm the person is not a prohibited possessor.

Anyone hoping to register an assault weapon or large capacity magazine must prove to police that the items are securely stored and that they are only kept on property owned by the registered owner or on someone else’s property with express permission.

The initiative includes exceptions for government officers, members of the armed forces or peace officers. It would also allow firearm manufacturers to the build assault weapons to sell to the armed forces or law enforcement agencies in Oregon.

Sales and transfers of the weapons or large capacity magazines would only be allowed between licensed firearms dealers and branches of the armed forces or law enforcement agencies in Oregon.

The initiative defines an assault weapon as:

• A semiautomatic rifle that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and has at least one of the following:

  • Any grip of the weapon, including a pistol grip, a thumbhole stork or any other stock
  • Any feature capable of functioning as a protruding grip that can be held by the non-trigger hand
  • A folding or telescoping stock
  • A shroud attached to the barrel, or that partially or completely encircles the barrel
  • A forward pistol grip
  • A flash suppressor, muzzle brake, muzzle compensator, or threaded barrel designed to accommodate a flash suppressor, muzzle brake, or muzzle compensator
  • A bayonet mount or a grenade launcher or flare launcher

• A semiautomatic pistol, or any semiautomatic, centerfire or rimfire rifle with a fixed magazine, that has the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds of ammunition.

• A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has an overall length of less than 30 inches

• A semiautomatic pistol that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and has at least one of the following:

  • Any feature capable of functioning as a protruding grip that can be held by the non-trigger hand
  • A folding, telescoping or thumbhole stock
  • A shroud attached to the barrel, or that partially or completely encircles the barrel
  • The capacity to accept a detachable magazine at any location outside of the pistol grip
  • A threaded barrel capable of accepting a flash suppressor or forward pistol grip

• Semiautomatic shotgun that has both of the following:

  • Any grip of the weapon, including a pistol grip, a thumbhole stock or any other stock
  • A folding telescoping stock

• Semiautomatic shotgun that has at least one of the following:

  • A fixed magazine capacity in excess of 10 rounds or an ability to accept a detachable magazine

• Shotgun with a revolving cylinder and conversion kit, part or combination of parts from which an assault weapon can be assembled if those parts are in the possession or under control of the same person.

A large capacity magazine is defined as any ammunition feeding device with the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds or any conversion kit or combination or parts from which such a device can be assembled

At the end of the day, Post feels this sort of proposal is threatening to law abiding, gun owners in Oregon.

“This is not so much a gun confiscation ballot measure as it is a registry and that should scare people. Registration is the next step to confiscations, so I would just say that,” Post said.

Still, advocates believe removing the bulk of assault-style weapons from Oregon’s landscape will help prevent mass shootings in the future.

“Even if someone commits a mass shooting with a different type of firearm, especially without a high-cap magazine, that’s going to reduce the gunshot death and injury, so we know that for a fact, we have good studies on that,” Okamoto said.

Citigroup Imposes Restrictions on Client Gun Sales

Company’s Chief Executive Officer defends anti-gun policy in email provided exclusively to Infowars

 Citigroup announced Thursday it’s implementing restrictions on client firearm sales, making it the first major bank to impose such gun control measures.
In an email to employees provided to Infowars, Citigroup Chief Executive Officer Mike Corbat detailed new policies applying to “small business, commercial and institutional clients, as well as credit card partners.”

The policy is ostensibly “designed to respect the rights of responsible gun owners while helping keep firearms out of the wrong hands,” Corbat claimed.

Citi’s new “US Commercial Firearms Policy” requires firearms only be sold to people age 21 or older, that gun purchasers pass a background check, and restricts sales of bump stocks or “high-capacity magazines.”

If retail clients refuse to enact Citi’s “best practices over the coming months,” they are free to part ways with the bank, Corbat wrote.

“If they opt not to, we will respect their decision and work with them to transition their business away from Citi,” reads the email to employees.

Additionally, potential clients would be screened to ensure their businesses adhere to the new policy.

Corbat, who claims to be “an avid outdoorsman and responsible gun owner,” says the new restrictions are a great compromise for Second Amendment advocates and anti-gunners.

“We don’t have the perfect solution to supporting our Constitution while keeping our children and grandchildren safe,” he writes, adding, “But we shouldn’t let that stop us from doing our part.”

The bank’s announcement comes in the wake of a massive gun control push following a school shooting in Parkland, Florida that left 17 dead and several injured.

Read Corbat’s internal email below, provided exclusively to Infowars by a Citigroup employee:

PORTLAND BLACK LIVES MATTERS LEADER PLEADS GUILTY TO SECOND CHILD ABUSE CHARGE 3-19-2018

BLM- BLACK LIVES LEADER CONVICTED OF SEX ABUSE WITH MINOR

I just thought you would want to know, Steve the leader of the Portland BLM chapter, the one that started the election night riots that caused several hundred thousand dollars in property damage, has been convicted of sex abuse with a minor. He is also facing multiple other sex abuse charges. He is also a registered sex offender, except he never bothered to register. And finally, he is still out on bail right now.

Prominent Black Lives Matter Leader GUILTY of SEX ABUSE CRIMES with Minors
by Brock Simmons

Micah Rhodes (center), wearing a Black Panther Party shirt, flanked by disgraced ex Portland police chief Mike Marshman and disgraced ex Mayor Charlie Hales, when the public was propping Rhodes up as a hero and covering for the rioters before they realized he was a registered sex offender

Rhodes has previously been convicted of sex abuse when he was a minor, and was on probation for such at the time of this second incident. Additionally, he was a registered sex offender. Strangely enough, however, he is not listed on the official sex offender registry.

Furthermore, Rhodes also faces another set of sex abuse charges in Multnomah County, this time involving an underage boy whom he met via Grindr.

Rhodes was instrumental in the planning of the election week protests and riots in Portland in the aftermath of Trump’s Presidential victory.

Rhodes had apparently made bail in these recent, and neither the Multnomah County nor Washington County inmate rosters show him currently in custody.

He is very likely back out on the streets.

Rhodes, alongside another prolific activist, Greg McKelvey, in court regarding still a separate matter, when they were arrested during a string protests in November, 2016.

Here is an update. We are finally starting to see some local media coverage.

Rhodes has now pleaded guilty to a SECOND abuse charge, this one in Multnomah county.

Guilty Again! BLM Leader Pleads To More Sex Abuse Charges
by Brock Simmons 88 Comments

Last week we reported that Micah Rhodes, one of the Black Lives Matter organizers in Portland, was found guilty of sex abuse charges in Washington county, adjacent to Portland. Rhodes has now plead guilty to another sex abuse charge in Multnomah County, this time involving an underage boy that he hooked up with via the Grindr app.

The Oregonian reports:

Portland protest leader Micah Rhodes gave up his legal fight Tuesday by pleading guilty to a second round of sexual abuse charges against him, this time for having sexual contact multiple times with a 17-year-old boy.

The victim couldn’t consent to the contact because he was a minor. Rhodes — then 20 or 21 — was more than three years older than the teenager at the time of the 2014 or 2015 encounters. He met the boy on a gay dating app.

Rhodes, now 24, was a leader of the protest group Portland’s Resistance, which rose to prominence after Donald Trump won the presidential election in November 2016 and the group helped organize day after day of marches and rallies.

But Rhodes had long been a part of Portland’s activist scene before that and a familiar face at Portland City Council meetings. Among his notable achievements was helping stage a camp-out in front of then-Mayor Charlie Hales’ home in 2016.

Rhodes pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree sexual abuse in Multnomah County Circuit Court.

It’s unclear how much time Rhodes faces in the Multnomah County case.

The Oregon Youth Authority began supervising Rhodes when he was 14, for sexual abuse and sodomy, authorities said. According to court records, Rhodes was 13 or 14 years old in 2007 when he sexually abused a boy who was 9 or 10 years old.

Washington County Deputy District Attorney Andy Pulver argued in court papers that Rhodes has a “sexual predisposition toward minor children.”

Rhodes had been required to register as a sex offender at the time he was charged in the Multnomah and Washington county cases.

According to the Oregon courts webpage, Rhodes was originally facing five charges, 4 counts of Sexual Abuse in the Second Degree and one count of Third Degree. The plea deal is for two counts of Second Degree.

Neither the Multnomah County jail or Washington County jail list him as currently in custody, so he is likely out on the streets until his sentencing. His bail is $2,000 in Multnomah county, and was raised from $1,000 to $5,000 in Washington county after showing up 2 minutes late for a court appearance.

Micah Rhodes, with fellow protester Greg McKelvey, at a court appearance on Disorderly Charges, stemming from the post election riots in 2016. Those charges were, of course, dropped by the leftist appeasing District Attorney Rod Underhill.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SYRIA PART TWO 3-17-2018

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SYRIA PART TWO

BY DOUG MCINTOSH 3-14-2018

Events in Syria are now collapsing into chaos, with the situation changing on an hourly basis it seems. Since I wrote these essays, Russia has essentially thrown down the gauntlet and made clear statements related to any further US intervention in Syria. Turkey is now bombing inside both Iraq and Syria. Assad Junior is moving both regular Syrian military forces, as well as his armed miltia to directly confront Turkey when it moves towards Manjbi after the genocide is complete in Afrin. Multiple reports indicate the Al Qaida, ISIS, and even Chinese Uighr Muslims in Erdogan’s “milita forces,” are raping and murdering their way through conquered Kurdish villages.

Several  good links for information are here.

http://en.farsnews.com/newstext.aspx?nn=13961226000383

 

 

In my first essay I dealt with the general historical context of modern Syria, and also listed various factors that resulted in the current Syrian civil war scenario. In this second essay, I will deal with Turkey’s leader Erdogan and his invasion of Syria, why he did it, and what he wants out of it. I will also deal with who is doing what, and why they are doing it.

First, my readers need to understand one fact above all else. The one fact is, in my opinion, Turkey’s leader, Erdogan is bat poop crazy. The reason I make this rather harsh statement is Erdogan is a man who thinks he is on a mission from God/Allah. The mission is to restore the historical Ottoman Empire. However crazy we think this is, I assure you Erdogan is totally committed to this Ottoman Imperial restoration. Now, when I am talking about a “restored Ottoman Empire,” I am really talking about Erdogan’s vision, and the actions he is taking to do it. The historical Ottoman Empire was based in Turkey and eventually came to be very powerful. It is true that the Ottoman Empire by 1917 came to control Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia as we call them today. It is also true that the term, “Gate of Vienna,” refer to the Ottoman Empire attacking the Hapsburg Empire in 1683. The date September 11th is related to this attack. The Ottomans also conquered Yugoslavia. The reason for the 1998 conflict between NATO forces and the Serbs can be drawn in a direct line to Ottoman actions. Kosovo was a problem that began with a battle in 1300, and ended with a battle in 1998. In Europe past is present and current problems all have historical roots. It is the same thing in the Middle East, as the US has found to its sorrow. So, my main point is in Erdogan we have a man who has a vision, and that vision involves restoring the Ottoman Empire, presumably to its greatest extent. It is that vision, dear reader that is going to shake the entire Middle East to its core. It is that vision that resulted in Turkey invading Northern Syria. Erdogan says he is invading Syria to prevent “Kurdish terrorists,” from creating an independent Kurdish state in Syria that threatens Turkey. In reality, his true goal is to annex Syria into his restored Ottoman Empire. Erdogan is also using “proxy forces,” combined with regular Turkish military units, to do so. Another key fact in the entire Syrian Civil War scenario is the use of proxy forces. Everybody in Syria, the Russians, the Americans, NATO, and Iran are using proxies as pawns in the Great Game. The reason is to exhibit the famous statement, “plausible denial,” I also think both NATO and the USA got burned by their proxy forces, especially by the Al Qaida and ISIS forces. At any rate, in order to understand what is now going on in Syria, you need to understand that various agendas are now in play. Turkey’s agenda is to annex Northern Syria, with the idea they will eventually incorporate all of Syria into Turkey. Further, all of Erdogan’s actions must be viewed as trying to achieve his goal of a restored Ottoman Empire.

In order to do that, Erdogan is quite willing to roll the dice. He is willing to take great risks. The reason being he understands that if he is truly trying to restore the historical Ottoman Empire, which he is, then he must risk all. Erdogan is quite willing to risk his membership in NATO. He is quite willing to risk a broader war in Syria. He is quite willing to fight the USA, and Assad Junior, and Iran, and even Russia. Erdogan is even making noises about invading a fellow NATO member Greece. Like I said, whatever anybody thinks about Erdogan, and I really do think he is Bat Poop Crazy, the man has a vision. He thinks this vision comes from God/Allah and he is willing to do what it takes to implement that vision. The fact he may trigger a regional Middle East War, or unleash a level of chaos a sane man would back off from, well Erdogan simply doesn’t care at this point. He may go down in flames, and he may crash and burn the entire Middle East, but he is going to try for the brass ring, whatever the results are.

Erdogan has stated he plans to conquer Afrin. The fact he may unleash a Kurdish massacre doesn’t bother him. The fact his proxy forces are a group of Al Qaida, ISIS, and assorted Turkish thugs doesn’t bother him. If they rape, and kill and destroy Kurds in Syria, this doesn’t concern him. He is going to take Afrin. He is going to do what it takes to do so, and the consequences be damned. If Erdogan has to leave piles of Kurdish corpses, including Kurdish civilians, he will do that. Erdogan is going to create a Turkish “sphere of influence” covering his border with Syria, from the Med in the west, to the Euphrates in the east. Once he does that, he will then directly engage Assad Junior and his forces, likely backed by Russia. When Erdogan turns east from Afrin, he will attack Manjbi, which is where the US forces are. And when Erdogan does that, he will shatter NATO, unleash a regional war, and force the USA to engage him in self-defense.

I think this is the general context of what Turkey is now doing in Syria. They clearly intend to take over all of Syria, and if they have to fight everybody else to do so, then Erdogan will do just that. Of course, that brings us to the cold, hard reality of exactly what that means. Turkey has so far  avoided direct combat with Assad Junior’s military forces. The reason being Assad Junior has cynically taken advantage of Turkey’s invasion to settle some scores of his own.

Syria, as the situation is on March 14,Th 2018 is a shattered country. If the military mission of any military is to protect the lives and property of its citizens, as well as the territorial integrity of the state, then Assad Junior has failed miserably. The pre-civil war borders of Syria no longer exist. This one fact now determines all actions Assad Junior is now taking, and will take in the future. You see, dear reader, Assad Junior is also a man on a mission. His mission is to restore the pre-civil war borders of Syria. It is this fundamental conflict between a Turkish leader, who wants to annex Syria, and a Syrian leader who wants to restore Syria, that will unleash the firestorm I am predicting. Assad Junior is now engaged in a massive effort, some 15,000 combat veteran ground forces, with Russian air support, to retake his capital city of Damascus. He is attacking the eastern suburbs of Damascus and plans to exert control over it. Assad Junior is also attacking west of the Turkish forces in Northern Syria in order to reclaim the area between Afrin/Aleppo and the Med. He is also attacking east to the Euphrates River to restore the original Syrian and Iraq border. Finally, he is attacking south, both east and west in order to restore his border with Israel, on the Golan Heights, and with Jordan. While Erdogan has been conquering much of Northern Syria, Assad Junior has been restoring his borders to the east, to the northwest, and to the southeast and southwest. Once that is completed, Assad Junior is going to go after the Turks in the north. When that happens, all hell is going to break out, and all the various players are going to get sucked into the free for all.

I am saying that the current context of the entire “Syrian situation,” is based on a Turkish leader, Erdogan, who is trying to annex Northern Syria, and eventually all of Syria, into his restored Ottoman Empire. He is facing Assad Junior who is trying to restore the original, pre 2011 Syrian borders, It is this conflict, in my opinion, that will define what is going to happen in Syria over the next few weeks and months. It is the definitive example of being between a rock and a hard place. Syria, and eventually the entire world, is going to impale itself on an Erdogan who seeks to conquer Syria, and an Assad Junior who seeks to prevent that conquest. Of course, Israel and Jerusalem, as well as Iran and Hezzbollah will also be thrown into that toxic mix of competing visions for Syria. In order to explain that, I would require another essay, so I will just mention it and move on.

We are now on the verge of the Syrian abyss. The two main players are Assad Junior, the leader of Syria, and Erdogan, the leader of Turkey. The reason I am predicting disaster is because Russia, the USA, NATO, Iran and Hezzbollah, the Kurds, and eventually Israel will all get sucked into the mess. The reason being that having proxies is a two edged sword. The reason the “big boys” like proxies is they can be pushed out of the airplane at 30,000 feet with nobody the wiser. The reason the “big boys,” hate proxies is they can storm the pilot’s cabin and crash the plane. You roll the dice, and you takes your chances.

I think it is clear that soon Assad Junior will have to respond, as in military response, as in shooting at the Turks. I think it is clear Turkey will start shooting back when that happens. At that point, delusional fanatic that he is, Erdogan will request NATO combat intervention, like under the famous clause 5. When that happens, the result will either be the collapse of the NATO military alliance, or direct combat between both NATO forces, and US forces with Assad Junior. Following my thought stream here, we come to a situation where that will result in Assad junior’s allies; namely, Iran, Hezzbollah, and Russia coming to his aid. Putin has made it very, very clear, in his statements on the British response to the “murder” of the Russian dissidents, he will brook no fecal material. Putin has further stated very plainly he not only has a credible nuclear force, but he is quite willing to use it. Finally, Putin has made it quite clear that he fully supports a unified, and that is a key word, unified, Syria. Again, a unified Syria is a Syria restored to its pre-civil war borders, and under the control of Assad junior. This puts Russia in direct opposition to Turkey, the EU, NATO and the USA, who want to partition Syria. Well, Vlad the Impaler is saying he won’t go for that, and intends to make sure that doesn’t happen, and will use military force to prevent it. Putin’s General made the statement that any further attacks on Damascus by anybody, US coalition forces, Israel, or Turkey will be met with force, especially if they threaten Russian lives I wonder why the US coalition, when they bombed the Russian mercs, thought they would get a pass on it. Putin is playing a deep game here in Syria. He views Syria in the context of the NATO betrayal when the former Soviet Union collapsed. The entire Syrian situation must also be viewed in the context of NATO’s expansion to the east. NATO is now deploying combat troops directly on the Russian borders with the Baltic States, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. Further, NATO has deployed troops to Poland, put missile batteries in Romania, and the final insult of putting US Naval ships into the Black Sea. Putin regards the Black Sea as not the Romans “mare nostrum, or our sea, but as a Russian bath tub. Of all the things that NATO has done to enrage Moscow, sending in US fleet destroyers to insolently cruise around next to the Russian Black Sea Fleet, is the worst by far. So, on the edges of the “Syrian Situation,” we have the NATO eastward deployment situation, along with the Black Sea situation, all of which Putin views in terms of the “Ukrainian situation”. The reason I am saying the “Syrian situation’ is so bad, is because it is in Syria where all the various threads of Russian, US and NATO confrontation come together. Syria is the sword upon which all the players are going to eventually impale themselves, whether they want to or not.

The bottom line of all this scheming, deploying and posturing is we may, similar to World War One, simply stumble into a war. Whatever the various players are planning for, and however they intend things to turn out, we are now in the Twilight zone, or perhaps we should think in terms of the famous Mr. Murphy. Mr. Murphy is the reality that everything that can go wrong will go wrong. Syria is now beyond intentions, or expected results in my opinion. I think things are now in play that once unleashed take on a life of their own.

Finally, the Kurds are involved. The thing my readers need to understand is that the Kurds are not a monolithic group. The “Kurds” are divided into several competing groups, all with different ideologies, agendas and goals. The Kurds now in Afrin are, more or less, Marxists. They derive from a Kurdish leader now in a Turkish prison, and are dedicated to the creation of a Kurdish state inside of Turkey. Erdogan does have reasonable concerns about “Kurdish terrorists.” Unfortunately, Erdogan is quite willing to throw out the baby with the bathwater. The Kurds number roughly 50 million worldwide. The Kurds live in Iran, Northern Iraq, Southeastern Turkey, and Syria among other places. The Kurds also live in Europe, with one million in Germany alone. It is almost certain, and has in fact already happened with the Turkish mosques being attacked in Berlin, that the Turkish and Kurdish conflict centered in Northern Syria will spread to Europe first, and eventually to the USA, which also has some Kurds living here. The next phase of the Syrian conflict has gone from “over there,” to “over here.”

At any rate, a history of the Kurds is beyond the scope of this essay. I will make the point that the USA has betrayed the Kurds twice. The first time, under the famous war criminal Henry Kissinger, was when we brokered a deal between Saddam and the Iranian Shah in 1975. We pulled our support for them, betrayed and abandoned them, and let Saddam kill them in droves. The second betrayal was in 1991 after Desert Storm. Again, we betrayed, and then abandoned both the Kurds and the Shia. We led them on, got an armed uprising out of them, and then let Saddam’s helicopter gunships machine gun, and rocket them without let up. So, the Kurds, even though we used them as proxies to fight ISIS, never really trusted us. The result was that when Turkey invaded Northern Syria on January 20th, 2018, the Kurds immediately ceased fighting ISIS, and started moving to defend Afrin. Of course, once Erdogan got wind of thousands of armed, combat veteran Kurdish Peshmerga, heading from Eastern Syria, and Aleppo to Afrin, he started screaming at both the USA and its coalition, and NATO to stop them. Again, everything is now in play. When people ask me what one of the results of Erdogan’s invasion of Syria was, I tell them it gave ISIS a second chance. ISIS is now expanding its Euphrates River zone because the fight against it has ceased, and the reason for that is the Kurds left for Afrin, and the reason they did that was Erdogan plans to conquer it, and likely, or at least his Al Qaida and ISIS proxy troops plan to, murder and rape all the Kurds, civilian or not, they can find. Like I said, current events in Syria are like a rock thrown into a pond. You never really quite know how far the ripples will spread. One would not think that Turkey invading Syria would result in the salvation of ISIS, but it has.

Finally, I am saying that whatever the players intend for Syria, the 2nd law of Thermodynamics, the one called Entropy, is now fully in play. Entropy states that the tendency is for decay. I call it the teenager’s room syndrome. One of the reasons I personally find the theory of Evolution to be so ridiculous is because it violates Entropy. Entropy states that if you clean a teenager’s room, within one week it will look like a cyclone hit it. Evolution states not only will the teenager’s room not decay, it will evolve. Evolution is like reducing a Ford Truck to its individual parts, throwing it into a garage and then expecting it to put itself back together. /The ideal is a violation of natural science and simply ridiculous. Syria is now in the exact same situation. It will be put together again in my opinion. It will be Assad Junior, backed by Russia, Iran and Hezzbollah who will do it. The Kurds, well the Kurds will get screwed again, as they usually are, although I think they will land on their feet, more or less.
