CIVIL WAR IN IRAQ 10-20-2017

Gee, what a surprise the Kurds are going to fight to keep the original 2003/2005 borders of Kurdistan from being overrun by Iran’s PMU and the Shia Iraqi Army. I imagine the puddles under the office chairs in the Coaliton conference room are getting rather large by now. So, both the Kurds, the PMU and the Iraqi Army are now using the “heavy stuff” given to them by both NATO and the Americans to fight ISIS on each other.

Hmm, I seem to remember somebody here, oh it was Doomer Doug, saying that when TSHTF it would involve open combat, ie CIVIL WAR, between the PMU, the Iraqi Army and the Peshmerga. Oh my,  I didn’t listen to the Bachelor show but anybody with an IQ above single digits could figure out the PMU, the Iraqi Army and the Kurdish Peshmerga were going to light each other up the first chance they got.

So, who wins now?

First, ISIS is now back in the game big time. The “destruction of ISIS” Trump et al were crowing about now resembles Bush juniors famous Aircraft Carrier speech “Mission Accomplished.” Hmm, that was before the decade long insurgency, followed by the US running away with its tali between its legs, and that was followed by Iran taking near total control of Iraq.

What is happening now is the second phase of the IRANIAN INVASION OF NORTHERN IRAQ INCLUDING KURDISTAN.

Yep, nobody is going to put the toothpaste back in the tube now. And ISIS is just sitting along the Syrian/Iraq border, all 7,000 of them, as in ONE FULL COMBAT BRIGADE. Now where did the destroyed ISIS come up with 7,000 fighters?

ISIS is likely already moving into Northern Iraq to exploit the open warfare between the three elements of the “anti-ISIS coalition” who are no longer fighting ISIS, but now fighting each other, and using all the big boom boom toys we gave them.

There is no going back now. It is full on Civil War now in Iraq. One more thing. Iran now has to stop cutting up bait and start fishing. This means the PMU will now go FULL ON and move into the 2005 border defined Kurdistan. They really have no choice at this point. At a minimum the PMU and Iraqi Army will try to encircle the original Kurdistan and blockade it. OF course when Iran’s proxy forces do that, all hell is going to break out in Northern Iraq. Whatever differences the two Kurdish Pershmerga groups have, both of them agree that the original Kurdistan’s borders, as defined by the Central government in Baghdad in 2005, are sacrosanct and IRAN’S PROXY FORCES OR THE IRAQI ARMY WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO BREACH THEM, OR OCCUPY EITHER ERBIL OR THAT OTHER KURDISH CITY FURTHER SOUTH.

Iraqi army, Shiite militia and Peshmerga exchange heavy fire north of Kirkuk

By Rudaw 26 minutes ago

9:54 p.m.

Peshmerga claims high casualties among Iraqi forces

The western command of the Peshmerga, formerly stationed in western Kirkuk, stated that six Peshmerga were killed among their forces in Friday’s clashes and a number were injured.

The command said they destroyed two tanks, including one Abrams tank, one armored vehicle, and more than 12 Humvees.

They also claim more than 150 casualties among the Iraqi forces, consisting of the Iraqi army, Hashd al-Shaabi, Iranian Revolutionary Guards, and mercenaries, they reported.

Iraq’s Joint Operations Command said the Peshmerga used the MILAN anti-tank system against its forces in Friday’s clashes in Pirde (Altun Kupri). The defense system was given by Germany to the Peshmerga “exclusively” for the war against ISIS, the statement read.
 
It said the MILAN weapons caused material and human losses among the Iraqi forces, calling it a violation.
 
It did not provide details of the number of casualties.

Iraqi forces stated that Altun Kupri is under their full control, also confirmed by Rudaw’s reporters.

Two journalists injured in Iraq-Peshmerga clashes

A Rudaw cameraman and a Belgian freelance reporter were injured while covering Friday’s clashes in Pirde, also known as Altun Kupri. Their injuries are not life threatening.

Rudaw cameraman Saman Ghani was covering the clashes, where he said the Peshmerga were putting up “a lot of resistance” when a mortar landed near him.

“I was standing by the reporter, Hiwa Husamadin. A mortar shell landed suddenly next to us by the Humvee. [Shrapnel] hit my hand and neck. But thank God I feel very good now,” said Ghani.

Freelance Belgian photojournalist Jonathan Raa was also injured. He told Rudaw he was feeling fine and his thoughts were with the Peshmerga fighting on the frontline.

IRAN WINS IN IRAQ: GAME OVER 10-19-2017

Barzini overplayed his hand and set up the conditions where Iran, Iraq and Turkey unified against the Kurds to prevent chunks of their countries from being included in Barzini’s “new Kurdistan.” Trump, well Iran has concluded Trump is a loud mouthed, con artist and carnival barker who is all mouth and no action. It is clear to anybody in the region that Iran is the real winner here.

Iran has now achieved ALL of its original goals.

One: The creation of a secure land supply route from Iran, through Iraq, through Syria and into Lebanon’s Bekka Valley. The result of that is ongoing, sustained resupply for Hezzbollah in Southern Lebanon. Of course, that brings Northern Israel into a free fire zone for Hezzbollah/Iranian missiles. And that is a HUGE ADVANTAGE for Iran in any potential conflict with Israel. If Israel ever directly attacks Israel, well Iran will open a northern front, from Southern Lebanon and Hezzbollah’s missile batteries into Israel.

Two. Iran is now in full operational control of most of Iraq, using the Shia dominated central government in Baghdad and backed up the Armed Shia Militias, or PMU combined with the predominantly Shia central military.

Three: Iran has made Trump, NATO and Israel look like incompetent fools on the world stage.

Four: Iran has now neutralized any Kurdish attempt to liberate the areas inside of Iran known as Kurdistan. This means Iran now faces no threat of armed resistance from inside its country from the Kurds. Iran still faces a potential threat from Kurdish groups inside of Iraqi Kurdistan. However, they have just neutralized, mostly anyway, because Iraq Kurds are now under threat from Iraq, Turkey and Iran.

Five: Barzini is now a gutted, castrated political enuch who may or may not get whacked in the looming Kurdish Civil War between the two major Peshmerga groups.

Six. The Coalition “War against ISIS’ has now totally collapsed and ISIS will emerge, more lethal, stronger and become a factor in Iraq, at least northern Iraq now.

Seven. Trump is now shown on the global stage to have been outplayed by Iran. The results of that will be CATASTROPHIC as Iraq becomes a part of Greater Iran.

Yep, the USA is a fading empire, run by fools, neo con warmongers, globalists and with a military withered away into impotence by North Korea, China, Russia and Iran.

US COALITION IS NOW ACCESSORY TO WAR CRIMES AGAINST THE KURDS 10-16-2017

The events in Kirkuk, which is really the Iranian invasion of Northern Iraq using Shia Militias, Hezzbollah and the Shia dominated Iraqi Army, is nothing less than a war crime. The Shia Militias are now sacking Kirkuk, as well as executing POW’s by beheading them. Again, it is the US supported “Iranian Shia Militias” supported by the US Coalition in its fight against ISIS.

 

Well, it is clear to me that Iran is the big winner here. This was an IRANIAN INVASION OF NORTHERN IRAQ. Further, as I predicted, things are now getting very nasty. Below is the link to a Rudlaw reporter who CONFIRMS that the Iranian backed Shia militias are EXECUTING PESHMERGA POWS BY BEHEADING THEM. THIS WAR CRIME IS ON THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT AND IRAN. The Kurds will NEVER FORGIVE OR FORGET WHAT IRAN BACKED SHIA MILITIAS HAVE DONE TO THEM IN KIRKUK. THIS IS A BLOOD FEUD NOW FOR THE KURDS.

Yep, the Coalition is now an accessory to WAR CRIMES BY IRANIAN BACKED SHIA MILITIAS. This isn’t over by any means. It has only begun in my opinion. The Iraqi TERRORIST GOVERNMENT TROOPS AND MILITIA NOW FIND THEMSELVES IN A TRAP. It is one thing for them to conquer Kirkuk and the immediate area, but an entirely different thing to go into the rest of Kurdistan with tens of thousands of enraged, well armed Kurdish Peshmerga. Further, I expect summary executions and an internal civil war between the “traitor Kurds” and the vast majority of the Peshmerga and enraged civilians. I also expect a widespread campaign of terror by the Kurds against Iraq, Iran and Turkey. Iran in particular should expect domestic terror attacks inside of Iran by the Kurds that live inside of Iran. The hornet’s nest has been kicked over big time.

Peshmerga commander says Peshmerga withdrawal from Kirkuk was no ‘mistake’

 

Jaafar Sheikh Mustafa, commander of the Peshmerga’s 70 force, told Rudaw the decision to withdraw from Kirkuk was not a “mistake” as they wanted to protect the lives of Peshmerga soldiers.

Mustafa added Iranians led the fight against the Peshmerga in Kirkuk.

“I bear all the responsibilities – in success and failure,” said Mustafa, who led a large number of Peshmerga forces in south Kirkuk.

He dismissed claims that there was “an agreement” between the Peshmerga and the Iraqi army to allow them to enter the city without a fight.

“The Iraqi forces outnumbered the Peshmerga,” he said.

Hashd al-Shaabi beheaded Peshmerga in Kirkuk: Rudaw reporter

A number of Peshmerga were beheaded by Shiite Hashd al-Shaabi militia during confrontations to capture the city of Kirkuk on Monday, according to a Rudaw reporter who witnessed the events.

Rudaw’s Hevidar Ahmed reporting from the scene revealed that, among the Peshmerga killed by Hashd al-Shaabi, some were beheaded.

Ahmed, who reported on the course of clashes between the Peshmerga and Iraqi forces, said that in the beginning the Peshmerga put up a fierce defense. But the Hashd al-Shaabi widened their advance, at which point many Peshmerga were wounded and killed.

He saw the bodies of as many as 10 Peshmerga piled into the back of a pick-up truck. They had all been beheaded.

Wounded Peshmerga were put into another vehicle.

He said the Peshmerga were beheaded by a group of Hashd al-Shaabi trained after the Mosul operation started last year.

Inside Kirkuk, Hashd al-Shaabi have set up security checkpoints inspecting civilians.

Ahmed said he saw instances of supporters of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) being permitted to pass, but others linked with the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) were disarmed and insulted.

Ahmed also said there were looting and burning of Kurdish homes in Tuz Khurmatu by the Hashd al-Shaabi. He reported that 150 Kurdish houses were looted and 15 burned.

He added the bulk of Kurdish families from Khurmatu had fled to Erbil and Sulaimani.

As an eyewitness, Ahmed said much of the frontline was abandoned by the Peshmerga without a fight.

LAS VEGAS WAS AN ISIS OPERATION 10-8-2017

It is my personal feeling that the Las Vegas terror attack, the one that killed nearly 60 people, and wounded over 500 more, was actually a sanctioned ISIS terror attack. Further, in my opinion, this fact is known the FBI, NSA, CIA and other fedgov agencies. It is being intentionally suppressed by the left over Obamabot and Clintonista factions still infesting the Trump Administration. Trump either does not know this, or has not been told this by the cabal of Militant Islam apologists truly running Trump’s government. The political impact of the federal government openly, and finally, admitting that ISIS sleeper cells, terror cells, have been fully operational in CONUS for the last several years would lift the blinders from the brain dead American public. The public that has been lied to by the criminal conspiracy composed of the fake news media, the Marxist Democrats, the CAIR apologists, Hollyweird fools and George Soros. The result would be devastating and kick over the rock for people to see just how bad the Obama administration really was.

REPORT: White House Source: Video Exists Of Vegas Shooter Pledging Allegiance To ISIS

45,024 views
Alex Jones talks with former Trump campaigner James Brower about the Las Vegas shooter and why he thinks it’s obvious he dedicated his life to the cause of ISIS.

HERE WE GO AGAIN: LAS VEGAS 10-2-2107

I don’t know at what point Americans figure out we are now at war with Militant Islam here in CONUS.

The reality of this being an ISIS, possibly ANFA crossover is verified by both the connection to the Philipines and the intensity of the FBI system denials. If it wasn’t ISIS, then “they” wouldn’t be denying it so much. ISIS is full of insane people, but the Las Vegas attack was clinical perfection for them. We have now crossed the Rubicon. I find it fascinating that Las Vegas, which has been threatened multiple times by ISIS and now attacked by ISIS, is still claiming Militant Islam didn’t actually attack a city Militant Islam hates, even more than New York, or DC. If there is one city in the world, outside of Dubai, that fires up Militant Islam it is Las Vegas. It is also accepted behavior for Militant Islam to do everything an infidel would do in order to complete the mission. All this “they were drinking booze and getting lap dances” has no understanding of ISIS tactical doctrine. They shave their beards. They don’t go to the Mosque. They drink booze and they give NO indication they are Muslim at all. Besides, if you look at the Chechens for example, or the Bosnians, well they look about as white as a KKK member.

I think it will eventually come out there is a connection to Militant Islam in the Philipines, ie ISIS. You all have to understand much has been invested in the Islam can’t get to us here in the USA where we work, live and play agenda. If “they” admit this was an ISIS attack the financial implications for Las Vegas will be profound. So, “they” will deny any ISIS connection. They would have to admit that will cause Las Vegas to lose BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN FUTURE REVENUE.

IF you remember Bin Laden said the key goal of 9-11 was to bankrupt the USA, which, after two wars costing trillions, and homeland security and TSA, well you get the idea.

This was an ISIS sourced terror attack, and fulfils the THREATS ISIS has been making against Las Vegas for years now. It also must be viewed in the context of the Multiple terror attacks that have happened over the last 7 days, in Canada, in France and now in Las Vegas.

I don’t know why we keep underestimating Militant Islam. They are not coming: THEY ARE ALREADY HERE.

IRAQ’S CIVIL WAR PART TWO 9-25-2017

EMERGENCY UPDATE:

THE FOLLOWING LINKS ARE CRITICAL:

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-09-25/turkey-iraq-threaten-military-intervention-iraqi-kurds-hold-independence-referendum

Turkey, Iraq Threaten “Military Intervention” As Iraqi Kurds Hold Independence Referendum

Shortly after Russia disclosed on Sunday that a top Russian military commander, Lieutenant General Valery Asapov – who was serving as one of Russia’s “military advisers” in Syria – was fatally wounded by an exploding shell in a mortar attack by ISIS terrorists, on Monday the Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said that the “two-faced policy” of the United States was to blame for the death of the Russian General in Syria.

HERE IS MY ORIGINAL POST FROM LAST NIGHT.

The grand American experiment to “save” Iraq is about to undergo the final phase. The Kurds have, over the last 30 years cut out their long sought after Kurdistan. Granted, Kurdistan, as the Kurds see it, includes Northern Iraq, a chunk of Iran, the Northeastern part of Syria, and much of eastern Turkey. Obviously, Turkey, Syria and Iran aren’t interested in seeing chunks of their country became an independent Kurdish state. On the other hand, short of military conquest, Iran, Turkey and Syria have no options.

The Kurds are going to have a vote on Monday, September 25th, to declare open independence from Iraq. The Shia in Baghdad, who now control all of Iraq except the Kurdish parts, have said they won’t allow that. Well, the Shia armed militias, the only real military force in Iraq, other than the Sunni and the Kurdish Peshmerga, will follow orders from Tehran to prevent this. The farce called the Iraq Army won’t even be in the equation. When the Armed Shia Militias, which are loaned to the Baghdad central government by Iran, attempt to use military force to prevent Kurdish independence, well KABOOM.

The link below tells us that Iraq’s central government in Baghdad has already taken the first step towards an all out civil war between the Armed Shia militias, the Iraqi Army, and possibly the Sunni fighters against the Kurdish Peshmerga. The Peshmerga has received major US, Russian and NATO military support since 2014 to fight ISIS. Further, the Peshmerga has looted multiple military bases abandoned by the farce known as the Iraqi Army. Finally, Turkey is deploying armor and mechanized infantry forces on its eastern border with Kurdistan. Now, what could go wrong with all that happening? Does the Baghdad government really think the Kurds are going to obey that order?

https://ca.news.yahoo.com/baghdad-orders-kurdistan-region-hand-194724772.html

Baghdad orders Kurdistan region to hand over borders, ports

BAGHDAD — Iraq’s central government in Baghdad ordered the country’s Kurdish region to hand over all border crossings and airports to federal government control late Sunday night, hours before the region is set to carry out a controversial referendum on support for independence.

The referendum is set to be held Monday in the three provinces that make up the Kurdistan region as well as dozens of towns and villages that are disputed, claimed by both Baghdad and the country’s Kurds, including the oil-rich city of Kirkuk.

Here is another link that gives the Kurdish viewpoint.

TURKEY’S ERDOGAN GOES ALL IN 5-24-2017

One thing you can say about Turkey’s Erdogan is he is playing the Restored Ottoman Empire card to its logical conclusion. Besides having his bodyguard/thugs pound peaceful Kurdish demonstrators badly enough they needed to go to the ER, he has shown he is quite willing to seize as much of Northern Syria as he can get away with. Turkey, besides being a known supporter of ISIS, has engaged in routine military actions against Kurds inside of Syria. Turkey has shelled them with artillery, sent troops in to kill them, and bombed them with its F-16’s. Turkey is a NATO member, which means NATO has been directly engaged in attacking Kurdish forces that have been fighting ISIS. Erdogan has now been voted in as dictator, if not for life, at least until 2026 or so. The man really does think he is the new leader of a restored Ottoman Empire, and he really is willing to take any actions he can to make that happen.

Erdogan is now rolling the dice and moving in for the final kill of any Kurds in Syria who dare to not knuckle under to his military and political goals. The link below shows just how far Erdogan is willing to go to occupy Northern Syria and annex it to Turkey itself.

Turkey to Form 10,000-Fighter Army to Battle Kurdish Forces in Northern Syria

TEHRAN (FNA)- Sources in the Free Syrian Army (FSA) militant group disclosed that Ankara is about to form a new army of 10,000 FSA fighters to take part in battles against the Kurdish forces in Northern Syria.

The sources were quoted by the Arabic desk of Sputnik as saying that Turkey has a plan to form a new 10,000-member army from the Ankara-backed FSA militants to use them in battles against the Kurdish forces in a vast region staring from Jarabulus in Northern Aleppo to Idlib.

The sources added that the FSA militants are due to go under a 3-month training course and a further 45-day training by the Turkish Special Forces.

Sputnik went on to say that the FSA members that are to go under training will receive $300 as their monthly salary, while the Turkish side will also provide the FSA fighters with food and housing.

The sources told Sputnik that the operations in the towns of Afrin, Manbij and Tal Abyadh is the main objective of this new army.

Meantime, the people in al-Bab city in the Northern parts of Aleppo rallied to protest at the Turkish army and its allies’ deployment in the region.

Local sources in al-Bab reported on Monday that people held protest rallies in Sheikh Aqil district of al-Bab which was occupied by the Turkish army and Ankara-backed militants.

They added that tens of people in the region carried placards to protest at Ankara and President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s policies.

They also chanted slogans including “Erdogan listen! We don’t obey your cruel army. This place belongs to us”.

The rally was held after Turkey’s Deputy Prime Minister Veysi Kaynak said the country was considering establishing a base near the Syrian city of al-Bab.

Kaynak said location of the base currently being considered by the Turkish General Staff was Aqil Hill, West of al-Bab.

The Turkish military established a temporary base at the strategic site after capturing it in February and was considering turning it into something more permanent since.

Speaking after a trip to Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kaynak added that Turkish military presence in the area was reduced from 8,000 at the peak of the Operation Euphrates Shield to 1,500.

Turkey sent its military into Syria in August last year to prop up local militias allied with Ankara against ISIL and Kurdish forces. The confrontation with Syrian Kurd militias, which Turkey considers an off-shoot of the Turkish-based militant movement Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), put Ankara at odds with the US.    

The next link indicate the level of US support for the Kurds who will likely be fighting this new Turkish force in a few months.

Over 100 trucks loaded with US arms, ammo arrive in Syria’s Rojava – Turkish media

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region— A new batch of US arms and ammunition has arrived in the Kurdish controlled city of Hasaka, second such shipment in two months, Turkish media reported Tuesday.

The shipment, loaded on trucks and military vehicles, consisted of anti tank weapons, MK19, M4 Cabrine, M16 and Humwees and crossed the Semelka border into Syria from the Kurdistan Region on two separate occasions, May 15 and May 20, the media reports said. The US-led coaltion and the SDF haven’t yet announced the delivery.

 

According to multiple Turkish media outlets, the shipments were delivered to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an umbrella group which also includes the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG).

 

US President Donald Trump has approved a plan to arm the Syrian Kurdish fighters — an important U.S. ally in Syria in the fight against ISIS.

The Pentagon has said the move is significant because it supports the notion that the SDF is the fighting force that will eventually go in to Raqqa city in Syria’s center which has been under ISIS control since 2014.

The move reinforces the idea that the entire Syrian Democratic Force, Syrian Kurds (YPG) and the Syrian Arab Coalition, has the backing of the U.S. 

“The (Syrian Democratic Force), partnered with enabling support from U.S. and coalition forces, are the only force on the ground that can successfully seize Raqqa in the near future,” chief Pentagon spokesperson Dana White said in a statement on May 8 after signing the deal to arm the SDF.

No final dates have been set for the Raqqa offensive yet.

Turkey, a key US ally, sees YPG as a “terrorist” organisation and has vehemently opposed Washington’s intentions to include the Kurdish group in the operation. Ankara has instead proposed using the formation of Syrian rebel factions under the umbrella of its Euphrates Shield operation to launch the offensive.
