DANCING WHILE BELGIUM BURNS 3-24-2016

I have come to the conclusion our elites just don’t get it. I conclude it is a case of arrogance, or blindness, or sheer ignorance on their part. I also think the true reason they loathe Donald Trump is they think he is a traitor from their own class. It is not just what Trump says; it is the fact he says it at all. FDR was also viewed as a traitor by his fellow aristocrats.

The reality of our new war with Militant Islam can no longer be denied. Yet, our elite are still ranting the PC mantras with no apology. The elite refuse to make any serious effort to improve with border security. The elite refuses to make any effort at all to deal with the hordes of Muslim refugees pouring over our borders, or being brazenly flown into the USA and scattered like confetti at a parade. It is an insane policy. The elite don’t care.

Even by the low standards of Obama, his behavior on this trip to Cuba and Argentina has been unusually strange. It is bad enough for Obama to make nice with an unrepentant Raul and Fidel Castro. It is even worse to make no demands for any type of serious reform in Cuba; yet, go there and engage in folly and fantasy. The political dissidents Raul Castro arrested were not impressed when Obama went to a baseball game and did the wave with his new friends. We now have sold out to both Iran and Cuba. In return for this sell out, Obama has accomplished nothing at all, other than to make a fool of himself, further degrade the “full faith and credit,” of the USA government, and finally, make our enemies laugh at us. Obama’s legacy will be a nation further in debt, bitterly divided along race and class lines, and held in contempt by both our friends and our enemies.

The Roman historians I have read say the story of Caesar Nero playing the flute, or harp or whatever musical instrument it was, while Rome burned is false. We have lost most of Tacitus’s written history of the Nero era. It breaks off at book 66, yes, I know, so the last years of his reign are blank. What we do know is he was clearly unsuited to be the leader of Rome; we know that Obama is clearly unsuited to our leader. The last 7 years have proven again and again this statement to be true beyond any reasonable doubt. Personally, I think future historians, if there are any, will be brutal on the American Republic, its leaders; especially, its populace. Obama doesn’t exist in a vacuum. He was elected twice. He is even now the choice of between one third and one half of all Americans. The fact he is a self-indulgent fool, lazy, not very smart, and prone to taking foreign trips that resemble the Imperial procession of despots, is all part of his charm to his Obamabot supporters.

Still, in the context of the ISIS terror attacks in both Belgium and France, his doing to wave at a baseball game in Cuba, or dancing the Tango in Argentina, is a sign of decay and folly. I don’t know if Nero ever really did fiddle while Rome burned. I do know Obama danced the night away while Belgium burned. Perception is reality. Illusion is now substance. When Obama struts out on the global stage, much like a peacock waving its tail plume and shrieking loudly, the rest of the world now laughs at him. The problem for the rest of us Americans is when they laugh at Obama, they laugh at us.

CRUZ’S SCORCHED EARTH POLICY, MILITANT ISLAM 3-22-2016

And now back to our regularly scheduled doom and gloom, blog readers. If after today’s events you don’t want to hop on a space shuttle to an alternate dimension, you haven’t been paying attention.

It is obvious ISIS is capable of wider ranging terror attacks than the PC crowd can mentally accept. No matter how loudly the PC morons chant “Can’t we all get along,” it won’t help. Militant Islam believes in Sharia Law. Sharia Law rejects all other legal systems: Roman law, Middle Ages Law, English Common Law and American Constitutional Law. Sharia law has no mercy; it has no compassion. It is the law of the jungle; the law of an eye for an eye. The basic problem with Islam in general and Militant Islam in particular, is they are thinking in Old Testament terms. Militant Islam wants to go back to either the sixth or seventh century AD, depending on whether you are talking Shia or Sunni. The rest of the world has moved on. Islam has not. It is a very simple equation in my view. Islam will either come to terms with modern life, or they will be exterminated by it.

I do not think all Muslims are terrorists. I do not think Islam is incapable of making the mental adjustments to live through the coming purge of Militant Islam from modern society. I do think Muslims are going to have to make a choice about their religion. Muslims, who think Jihad, or holy war, is a literal call to be suicide bombers will eventually be hunted down and eliminated from modern life. Muslims who understand Jihad is an internal spiritual battle will survive. Muslims who are not violent, vicious animals like ISIS, or both the Shia and Sunni fundamentalists will have a place at the table 50 years from now. If they do not, they will be at best be quarantined, and at worst crushed into impotence. One thing they will never be allowed to do is take over advanced cultures and take them back to the sixth century.

Any Muslims who think Militant Islam won’t create the kind of fascist, totalitarian governments in the nations of the west that will do all the things the PC crowd despises, is deluding themselves. I assure any Muslim reading this of one thing: the day a nuke goes off in CONUS, the response will be a holy war of our own. I hope that Muslims who are not misled by a flawed view of Islam will come to their senses. If they do not, then the blood is on them.

The buzz word for diplomats is “unacceptable.” Whenever a terror attack happens, they trot it out like some kind of magical charm. Once Trump is elected US President this will fade away. Today’s elections in Arizona, Utah and American Samoa will reflect the fact that ISIS just brazenly attacked Belgium and brought it to its knees. I think ISIS is getting desperate as Putin hammers them into the ground. They are now engaged in the warfare of the weak. It will do them no good. Militant Islam is under the impression they have people cowed. They do not. Militant Islam is under the impression the gutless fool Obama is the type of leader they will always be dealing with. Trump will be taking over from Obama within a few months. Militant Islam is under the impression we can’t be as ruthless as they are, or as vicious as they are, or as brutal as they are. They are wrong.

Militant Islam confuses the fascist, oligarchs running the USA today as credible leaders. They are not. The time is coming when the BS will be swept aside. The time is coming when the American people, following their new leader Donald Trump, will have had enough, become angry enough to kick some serious Militant Islam ass. I saw a woman walking down the street in downtown Portland, Oregon. She was wearing a full burka. I have to say the sight filled me with a wrath I have not felt for some time now. The time is coming when Muslims will no longer be welcome in the USA. And when the liberal morons protest, they will have the living daylights beaten out of them. It is coming. I do not care if people call me a fascist. I don’t care if they like me, or think I am a good person. We are now in the final phases of this fascist, totalitarian police state called the USA. It will be changed by Trump, or it will collapse into chaos. At this point, I am more than willing to take down the pillars, just like Samson did, and live with the results. I despise Militant Islam. I despise people who murder children, rape women like sex slaves and engage in the behavior of savages. I do not think that is Islam, but I will brook no crap on the point. Islam will change, or it will die.

Today also saw the release of a video by Ted Cruz so repulsive, so venal and arrogant, I hesitate to post it. In it, Lying Ted claims Trump is responsible for the terror attacks in Belgium today. The level of contempt I feel for Militant Islam is only slightly less than I feel for Mr. Cruz. He is not a Christian in my view; he is wolf in sheep’s clothing. Cruz is that type of American Christian who sickens me. He may have been ordered by his globalist masters to adopt a scorched earth policy towards Mr. Trump. Our RINO whores, their elite shills and donors may have decided to so trash the current Republican Party to prevent a Trump victory that they really don’t care. The RINO elite seem to be headed towards making a Hellary the Witch victory inevitable.

THE CREATION OF A KURDISH STATE 3-18-2016

History will record the creation of a Kurdish Federated zone in both Iraq and Syria as a defining event in modern history. The Kurds will not be denied this time. The Kurds will brook no attempt to deny them the single goal they have sought for centuries. The result of that effort will set the Middle East on fire. It will eventually result in the partition of Iraq, Syria and Turkey. It is already causing chaos in the ongoing farce called the “Syrian Peace Talks,” in Geneva, Switzerland. The professional diplomats don’t really know how to deal with the situation.

We know the Kurdish goal is zone covering most of Northern Iraq, what used to be the 1991 no fly zone, now combined with the entire Iraqi and Syrian border with Turkey. Further, there is no doubt, at least to me; the Kurds intend to annex most of Southeastern Turkey. This is the area where most of the Kurds living in Turkey make their homes. This entire region is already in rebellion against Erdogan and his increasingly fascist regime. Erdogan is now engaged in what can only be called genocide against the Kurdish cities. Cities that are now in rebellion to his government. The Kurds in Syria are not going to let that go unchallenged. Once they finish closing the final pocket containing ISIS and Al Qaida, they will not hesitate to send in military supplies to their comrades fighting the Turkish military and the Grey Wolf terrorists Erdogan has sent in to murder civilians. The Kurds will launch cross border operations, send in sapper teams, and begin a campaign of forcing the Turkish military to cede control to the Kurds.

Erdogan will then request NATO implement clause 5. Clause 5 is the call for help from a country that is being invaded. Erdogan will never allow the creation of a Kurdish state on his border with Syria and Iraq. Erdogan will never allow Turkey to be partitioned. Turkey will be in the same situation as the Ukraine now is in. He will have lost a chunk of his country to the Kurdish state. He will scream for help from NATO, the EU, and the US. I don’t know if he will get it, but he will certainly demand it. Granted, he is kicking out German journalists, calling anybody who doesn’t agree with him a terrorist and throwing people in jail for “insulting” him. In fact, there have been over 2,000 people charged with making disparaging comments about him.

I see the situation unfolding as follows. It will take the Kurds a few more days, possibly a month or two, or three, to seal the final border pocket. They will have then forced ISIS and Al Qaida over the Turkish border, kicked them out of Syria completely, and sealed off all supply routes for any group deeper inside of Syria. All of this is being combined with ongoing attacks all over Syria to exterminate the final remnants of Al Qaida and ISIS. ISIS is also completely cut off from Iraq. It is being forced into smaller and smaller pockets subject to air strikes, artillery strikes and eventual infantry attacks.

Putin has replaced any fighter jets he pulled out with his most advanced attack helicopters. He has given the Kurds enough anti-aircraft defenses to make Turkish bombing runs dangerous. It is only a matter of time before one of the Turkish and Saudi Arabian jets gets shot down over Iraq or Syria. Once that happens, all hell is going to break lose.

It was also reported today that nearly 250 cease fire violations have taken place since the start of the cease fire. Considering ISIS and Al Qaida have been pounded without mercy, this means the other 97 groups must be still fighting. The positive news spin about the cease fire is revealed to be just another lie. Once the Mosul offensive begins, I can say both Iraq and Syria are at war, just like they have been at war for the last few years.

SLIPSLIDING TOWARDS WAR 2-25-2016

If anybody had any delusions the so called “Syrian Cease Fire,” was anything of the sort, today pretty much entombed any such delusions. I said that the Assad Alliance would move mountains to regain control of the supply route into Aleppo. They have now seized, or mostly seized, since it is hard to tell until the last ISIS sniper is dead, the town and hills. They still have some work to do on the actual supply road, but should be done by Saturday. I will also point out the definition of a “terrorist “is somewhat vague. The Assad Alliance has one view, while the Turks have another. Come Sunday morning, the Turks will still be shelling the Kurds inside of Syria, and the Russians will still be bombing both ISIS and Al Qaida,

Further, the Kurds, who can be forgiven for being annoyed at being shelled for over a week now, have promised an early start to the “Kurdish Spring.” The Kurdish Spring is the annual spring offensive by the Kurds inside of Turkey against Erdogan’s government and military. The fact one Turkish soldier was just killed in South East Turkey tells me it has already begun. When you add the arms cache just discovered near Ankara, well the pot is simmering. In fact, when I look at the “big picture,” I see the following. The Assad Alliance is continuing the ongoing military offensive against ISIS and Al Qaida with no reason to stop on Saturday. The Turks have taken the kinds of actions, as well as deployed the types and amounts of military assets directly on the Syrian border, that tell me they are looking for a quick strike into Syria to crush the Kurds. I think it will be just like the one they did to save that Turkish shrine a few months ago. The Turks have entered Syria and cleared an Olive tree orchard in order to create a free fire zone. They have sent mobile APC mounted Stinger anti-aircraft missile to the Syrian border. They have already deployed an 18,000 man division there. They have also just sent in mobile radar jamming systems. I look at all of the above and I can only conclude Turkey and its increasingly isolated, cut off and, in my view, delusional leader Erdogan are planning a “surgical strike” on Kurdish positions threatening the Turkish border with Syria.

One of the things I try to do here on my blog “Doomism,” is keep track of all the many parts; especially, how they fit together. Here is what I see happening over the next few days/weeks. The siren’s call for a “buffer zone,” complete with 30,000 US military, which is a variant of the “no fly zone,” may be the most lunatic idea Kerry, Obama, and Biden have ever come up with. The Assad Alliance will never allow the creation of any such zone on its border, nor will it ever accept the deployment of Turkish troops, NATO troops, or especially American troops. If any attempt to do that is made, well just KABOOM! I will also sadly note Donald Trump, apparently under the spell of that neo-con warmonger Sarah Palin, has stated he supports such a zone. Trump is good on domestic issues; unfortunately, he seems to be trapped by the fascist, neo con wing of the Republican Party.

The final straw is the EU, the European Union, statement they are unilaterally imposing an arms embargo on Saudi Arabia. The impact of that is going to be to enrage the House of Saud. The House of Saud will correctly assume the fact the EU is imposing an arms embargo on the Sunni House of Saud, and not on the Shia in Iran to be taking sides against the Sunni Muslims.

I think, and I have to tell my blog readers plainly, all of this is happening so rapidly, and on so many levels, even my blog comments are being overwhelmed.

I see a train of events headed towards a derailment of immense violence. I see people and nations make bad decisions that will lead to disaster. And finally, I see the prospect of a general war breaking out in Syria between the Assad Alliance, the Turkish military under Erdogan the Lunatic, and dragging in pretty much everybody else. I realize people will just say I am being negative. They will say the events aren’t as bad as they look, or the situation as dire as I paint it. Well, you get to think what you want, blog reader, but I will just say unless you are seeing something I am not; we are headed towards the abyss.

TRUMP WINS, PUTIN MOVES, AND ERDOGAN ROLLS THE DICE 2-24-2016

I have to say watching the RINO types, Republicans in name only, go into hysterics, whine and wail, and exhibit symptoms of a seizure over Donald Trump has given me much pleasure. I find the vision of American Oligarchs foaming at the mouth as the long suffering populist masses spurn the anointed Jeb Bush, and show the contempt the elite really deserves to be refreshing. I will also say the original American Oligarch plan to have a 1992 repeat, with Jeb representing the Bush Crime Cabal, and that scheming, twisted, manipulative witch Hellary representing the Clinton Crime Cabal, has now crashed and burned. The arrogance of the American Elite in such a brazen effort to crush what is left of the American Middle Class is disgusting.

Now that Trump stomped the corporate Republicans running against him in Nevada, with 46 percent of the vote, and now that he has solid leads in 8 of the remaining 12 states, the smell of fear is everywhere. I do not consider myself to be a conservative at all. I consider myself to be a secular populist. Trump disturbed me when he started cavorting with the likes of neo-con warmongers like Sarah Palin, and religious fundamentalists like Jerry Falwell, but I forgive him. Trump is going to win because people like me are going to vote for him. The reason I am going to vote for him is he is the ONLY candidate dealing with illegal immigration, the Militant Islam threat inside of the USA, and willing to not only say so, but do something about the problems. Trump is the kind of person who says what he means, and means what he says. For all the liberals claiming they will leave the USA if Trump gets elected, all I can say is don’t let the door hit you on your butt on your way out.

The situation in the Middle East continues to resemble what would happen if the Three Stooges were running the world. Actually, the Three Stooges, the New World Order version, are running the world! The link below confirms something I have had my four eyes on for some time. Putin is a broad thinker on so many levels. He is capable of widespread actions, based on a deep analysis of all political, economic, military and diplomatic aspects of what is now going on. Putin plays what has been called, “The Great Game,” very well indeed. The Great Game goes back for centuries and reflects the various efforts to seize both power and territory in the Middle East. Putin’s moves on the Crimea were also part of the Great Game, as are his military deployments to Armenia. Armenia shares a border with Turkey, and Turkey is a NATO member.

The link is from Forbes Magazine, which is about as New World Order as you can get in my view. The information is valuable in the sense it gives a coherent view of the totality of Putin’s moves. My blog readers will realize that I have been talking about Russian deployments along the entire Eastern European borders, all the way from Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, and the Ukraine. Putin’s moves against Georgia, and his open deployment to Armenia, must be viewed in the broad sweep of “The Great Game.” Putin’s moves in the Ukraine and Syria are also part of the plan.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/realspin/2016/02/24/putins-newest-satellite-state/#33587f343549

The events now going on in Syria must also be viewed in a larger context than just what is going on there. We are setting the stage for a conflict that will drag NATO in, kicking and screaming no doubt, into a direct conflict with Russia. Putin is clearly gambling he can have it all in Syria, the Ukraine, Armenia and the Crimean Peninsula, without actually getting into a shooting war with NATO. I am not sure he is factoring in either Turkey or Syria, much less NATO and the US, into his political and diplomatic equation.

Putin may pull it off, or he may drag us all into a regional war of intense chaos. Putin has also clearly made the judgment, correct in my view, NATO, the EU, Obama, Biden, and Kerry are not up to the task. It is this judgment of his which may doom us all to another cycle of mindless violence. I hope not, but I am no longer sure of that. Erdogan is a wild card in the truest sense of the word.

SYRIAN CEASE FIRE IS FLAWED 2-22-2016

In the few minutes since I made this post, an event of so stunning a nature, and so profound an implication for the entire Middle East has been made. I have no idea who this gentleman is, nor do I “know” if the information is accurate. I will only say that if this is true, and if Saudi Arabia really does have two nuclear weapons, then the game has changed in the Middle East.

The link is here, although I can’t guarantee it will work.

 

 

The cease fire announced by Russia and the US is a prime example of looking like you are doing something, without actually doing anything. Given the on the ground reality in Syria today, I am less than enthused about the benefits of this diplomatic effort.

I greet all the international readers of this blog. I do keep track of the daily views, along with the map display showing where viewers come from. Some of the nations, besides the USA and Canada, include Brazil, the United Kingdom, Malaysia, and Saudi Arabia. Of course, those may be government officials keeping track of particularly insolent infidels! At any rate, I am pleased to see this blog is starting to develop an international flavor.

 

 

Sigh, this so called “cease fire,” leaves out both ISIS and the several more militant Al Qaida groups. Further, I find it hard to believe the Syrians, the Kurds and the Russians are not going to recover the now cut off supply route to Aleppo. It is also unlikely the Kurds will give up a single foot the border area they now control. It is also likely they will use the remaining 4 to 5 days to further secure the pocket containing the rebels. And finally, it assumes Turkey will stop shelling the advancing Kurds and Syrian Army unit as they continue to advance towards the Turkish Syrian border. Other than that, I see no problems with it. <G> On the other hand, it will allow the Kurds, Syria and Russian to claim victory. It will further isolate Erdogan and Turkey. He will be faced with a choice between total acceptance of a Kurdish state on his border with both Iraq and Syria. He will be faced with a military victory that leaves him unable to do much about it, except either continues artillery shelling, launch air strikes inside of Syria, or invade with masses of armor and mechanized infantry. It will also give Russia all the excuse it needs to begin bombing or shelling the Turkish artillery parks. I am still thinking Erdogan is not going to accept any of that. The assumption he will not invade without NATO support is not one I am prepared to make. It will also be a matter of the Kurds now in Syria and Iraq providing logistical support for the nearly one quarter of the total Turkish population, i.e. the Kurds now living in South east Turkey. IN FACT ALL THIS CEASE FIRE MAY REALLY DO IS SHIFT THE WAR FROM INSIDE OF SYRIA TO INSIDE OF TURKEY. At which point. NATO again comes into play as Turkey will be facing internal subversion, aided and abetted by both Russia and the Kurds.

TURKEY’S ERDOGAN MEETS THE RUSSIAN BEAR 2-21-2016

I am more or less satisfied with the look of my blog now. I may change the color again to highlight the comment, tag and category section.

 

I have come to think Turkey’s Prime Minister Erdogan is a crafty fox who has now stumbled upon the Russian bear. If Turkey really does invade Syria, Turkey will endure the fate of the trapper who tangled with a Mama Grizzly bear in the movie called, “The Revenant.” I did a review of that movie several essays ago in case anybody is interested.

I have also found a Kurdish news site that is giving an account of what is now going on in Syria and Iraq from a Kurdish viewpoint. Of course, it is slanted, but the trick is to filter out the slant and find the gold nuggets in the pan. The news they are reporting is grim to put it bluntly. First, Turkey is continuing its unrestricted 155 mm artillery fire into Kurdish positions in Syria. As I noted earlier, Assad junior, who I have come to be impressed by, outflanked Turkey by including the Kurdish forces, now cruising towards the Turkish border, directly into the Syrian Army. The level of political moxy, ruthless cunning, and shrewd diplomatic instincts displayed here is brilliant. Turkey is now shelling Syrian Army units, and not just Kurdish ones. This takes things to the next level, and gives Assad and Putin justification for counter battery artillery fire. They can turn Turkish artillery pieces into burnt metal using a self-defense explanation. Of course, the Kurds are now saying they aren’t a part of the Syrian Army, but who cares at this point?

The links are here. http://rudaw.net/english

Further, Saudi Arabia is now engaged in the kind of very dangerous game playing that has often led to war. It is unclear, and since I am not an Arabic scholar I don’t know, whether Saudi Arabia actually has deployed man pads to the so called “moderate Rebels now fighting Assad,” or whether they are asking for permission to do so from the USA and NATO. One thing I can guarantee you is this. If the Syrian rebels begin to directly engage the Russian Air Force, and especially if they really do shoot down a Russian plane, well they will find out why it is not a good idea to piss of Mr. Putin. The jury is still out on any man pad, shoulder fired anti- aircraft missiles, really being in the hands of the rebels. Like almost everything now going on in both Syria and Iraq, we will know after the fact.

It is also becoming quite clear the general military advance to close the final pocket held by the anti-Assad Rebels in entering the final phase. Turkey will shortly be faced with the total control of its entire Syrian and Iraqi border by, depending on who you ask, either Kurdish forces, or Kurdish forces that are now officially part of the Syrian Army. Erdogan will only have the option to invade Syria, or sit back and enjoy the total ruin of everything both Turkey and Saudi Arabia have tried to gain in Syria for the last several years. My view is people expecting Erdogan to act in a rational, sober minded way don’t quite get the man. Erdogan is rolling the dice, and has shown precious little give, in dealing with Russia, or Assad, or NATO, or even our increasingly feckless Obama. I can also assure you that both our friends and especially our enemies have noted Obama and Kerry are totally out of their depth here. Kerry and Obama are like a Pacific Salmon that a Grizzly bear has just pulled out of a stream. They haven’t quite got their heads ripped off, but you know it is coming.

In other news, the Clinton crime cabal has managed to steal the nomination from the totally naïve Bernie Sanders. It really is like stealing candy from a baby. Hellary Clinton is surely a foul example of a human being by any standard you want to use. The only hope for America now is that scheming, arrogant, manipulative Witch suffers career ending damage from her concussion. Trump, well the man is stomping the RINO, Republican in name only crowd with gleeful abandon. The more “they” attack him; the stronger he gets. I think Trump will not only get the Republican nomination, but he will be the next President of the United States. The entertainment value of watching the liberals and RINO types foam at the mouth, wail, gnash their teeth and bang their heads on the wall has been a high point of my life these last few weeks. It just doesn’t get any better for me than watching the corrupt American oligarchs whining like a two year being told he can’t pull the tail of a German Shepard.

THE SIXTEEN HELICOPTER DEAL 2-20-2016

Obviously, I have changed the look of my wordpress blog here. It is a new theme called Editor that reflects my desire for a newspaper look. The title Doomer Doug is a little too big to fit, so I am working on that. I have also decided to type up my blog posts using Microsoft Word. I will then copy them to the blog and post them that way. This allows me to choose the right font: Times New Roman size 14, as well as spell check. Anyway, just a quick note to keep you up to date on blog changes. Now some of you may wonder why I am  saying a political fix may have been reached in Syria. The answer is simple: “they” really are quite terrified about a nuclear exchange between Turkey and Russia. They are so afraid of that “they” are willing to beat Turkey and Saudi Arabia into mush to avoid that. We shall see if Turkey is so out of control the plan “they”have come up with fails. We will know by the Ides of March one way or the other.

 

The deal is being made as I write this. I wonder if it will work. If it does not, we will see Yom Kippur Two. If it does we will buy some more time. The deal, such as it is, will be as follows. In return for Turkey and Saudi Arabia accepting a Kurdish State covering the entire Turkish border with both Syria and Iraq, Russia won’t destroy them. That is the deal Putin is offering in a sort of reverse Cuban Missile Crisis deal, along with a heavy dose of cynical humor.

Why you ask would Turkey or Saudi Arabia possibly take such a deal? First, I am not sure they will. I am only sure that is what is now being offered by Russia and her allies. Over at timebomb.2000 one of the posters commented that he works close enough to Tyson Corners to see the inbound helicopters. He said that he saw 16 helicopters Friday. I wondered what the implications of what I called a “16 helicopter day,” would be. I think I know the answer to that now.

Syria has just announced that the Kurdish military forces are now part of the Syrian Army. This is a huge dot, because it means the Kurds are no longer acting as some sort of Kurdish Army in Syria. This single statement makes the idea of a Kurdish State all along the Turkish border with both Syria and Iraq acceptable. The reason it will be acceptable is it will be part of a Syrian Federation. This Syrian Federation will be acceptable to Russia, the Kurds, Iran and Iraq. It will be acceptable to NATO, the EU, and the USA since it will prevent open warfare between Turkey, a NATO member, and Russia which is a superpower.

I think this is the political deal that will be announced over the next few days/weeks. I do not think either Turkey or Saudi Arabia will like it at all. The only issue is whether they can be beaten senseless and forced to accept it. I submit this deal is what the so called “best and brightest” have come up with. I don’t guarantee it will be accepted by Turkey, much less work. Nor do I guarantee we won’t have a regional war by March 15th. I do think “they” are in hysterics, seriously concerned about a nuclear exchange between Turkey and Russia.

It is clearly a sign of the mental and moral weakness of the West that this is the best they can do. Still, the way “they” think is as long as it doesn’t happen on my watch then I don’t care.

We may have dodged the bullet on this Syrian situation, assuming Turkey and Saudi Arabia can be beaten into submission and accept this. I am also thinking the level of mental anguish, fear, rage and the desire for revenge may be so great that the grand deal mentioned above will crash and burn. I mean that in the literal sense by the way.

TURKEY, SYRIA, CRITICAL MASS AND SYNERGY 2-18-2016

 

I think if you take a sober minded, no BS view of the current situation in Syria, a few things come to mind. The first is we are now one week into this escalating crisis. If you look at the start point, and compare it to today, a clear pattern of escalating violence, bad decisions, hysteria and threats is increasing in both scale and fanaticism.

One week ago the Kurds, the Syrian military, and Iran using Hezbollah, started a general offensive to close the pocket containing the last link to Turkey. Inside this pocket were the trapped remnants of opposition to Syria’s Assad, Under the cover of sustained air attacks by the Russian Air Force, the result has been made clear. Turkey certainly understands they are losing the war. Turkey certainly understands they now face the total collapse of all the military, political and diplomatic goals they set out to achieve. The overthrow of the Assad government and the creation of a Turkish enclave covering all of Northern Syria was the goal. This attempt has now completely failed for both Turkey and its Saudi Arabian allies.

One week ago Saudi Arabia mobilized somewhere between 150,000 and 250,000 men for an exercise called Northern Thunder. Turkey, in response to the imminent military collapse of its proxy forces, began unrestricted artillery shelling of Kurdish positions inside of Syria. Further, this shelling has now not only lasted seven full days, but has expanded from one city to eleven as of today. In addition to all of that military response, Turkey has suffered three separate terror attacks killing dozens. And finally, with the death in prison of the Kurdish leader, we have the final firebomb to throw on the fire.

In summary, we have gone from Turkey shelling one city to shelling eleven. We have gone from zero terror attacks to three. We have gone from no Saudi Arabian alliance soldiers being mobilized to at least 150,000. We have gone from the admittedly feeble diplomatic attempts to deal with the crisis, to the total collapse of all political and diplomatic efforts. Now we find a situation where several hundred thousand troops are fully mobilized for war. We find a situation where the Kurdish and Turkish leaders think the other side is killing their people. We have a psychological situation of near total hysteria, panic, and moves to seize dictator status by the Turkish leader. All of this is happening in one seven day period. I will simply ask my blog reader’s one question. If all of that happened in the last seven days, what do you think will happen over the next seven?

I can assure you Turkey is going to continue unrestricted 155 mm artillery shelling at the Kurds in Syria. I can assure both Turkish and Saudi Arabian jets will continue bombing both Syria and Northern Iraq to get at the Kurds. I can assure you the Kurds, enraged beyond reason at what they see as the murder of their leader by Turkey, will increase their efforts to close the pocket. I can assure that all of the players, from Russia and Iran, to NATO, Obama and the EU; including Saudi Arabia and Turkey will not back off, slow down, or make any attempt to stop the spiral of violence.

Critical mass is the term used to explain the exact point a nuclear reaction will explode. Synergy is a term used to define when result exceeds the sum of the parts. Synergy means two plus two no longer equals four. It now equals six or more. Well, my blog readers, we are now reaching both critical mass and synergy in Syria. The death of the Kurdish leader, in my opinion, will provide the exact point where critical mass is reached psychologically, politically and diplomatically. When you have a military situation where both sides regard the other as terrorists, war criminals, and raving lunatics, the political and diplomatic prognosis is not good. We have a Syrian equation where all the various individual parts: Assad’s military forces, Iran, Russia, the Kurds, Turkey, NATO, the EU, Obama and the USA, Saudi Arabia are now in synergy land. I will just point out the final result of escalating violence, chaos and anarchy is now greater than a simple listing of each of the above would normally result in.

 

We are going into uncharted territory now. I can’t honestly say what the conditions will be seven days from now. I can say I see no indication of any of the above groups backing down, or backing off, or even slowing down the growing spiral of violence. I was wrong in my seventy two hour timeline. I was not wrong is my analysis of the basic trends now happening. Nor was I wrong in my strong belief things were rapidly getting out of control, much less the total failure of all diplomatic and political efforts to prevent the kind of escalating violence we are now seeing. The final question of what the situation will be like on March fifteenth is too depressing for me to ponder. Each day will bring forth its harvest of things to deal with; I will deal with the daily dose of chaos and violence as it happens. Still, unless a miracle happens, we will see Yom Kippur Two soon enough. The fact Israel just bombed Syria is yet another indication of just how totally out of control the situation really is.

TURKEY’S REICHSTAG MOMENT 2-17-2016

The new world order, which is a hodgepodge of competing groups all seeking to control the world, is nothing if not consistent. It has long used a playbook with three basic points. The first is to create the crisis; the second is to provoke the reaction; the third, is to provide the solution. Adolf Hitler used this playbook in both the famous Reichstag fire, the one that allowed him to assume emergency powers, and his invasion of Poland with all the dead Polish soldiers carefully placed inside of Germany.

Turkey is now playing the exact same game with the car bombing of the bus carrying military people. This attack gives Turkey’s leadership a casus belli to seek NATO help to fight terrorism. It gives them a reason to keep shelling the Kurds in Syria. This is now the fifth day of unrestricted 155 mm artillery fire on Kurdish positions inside of Syria. When combined with the theft of nuclear material by ISIS, material that may be used to make a dirty bomb, all the pieces for the invasion of Syria are now in place. All Turkey really needed was a way to convince its allies to join it in either creating a Syrian no fly zone, or a 10 mile wide buffer zone. Turkey now has created the crisis. Turkey has now provoked the reaction. Turkey will now provide the solution, which is to invade Syria using the mantra of fighting terrorism in general, and fighting ISIS in particular. The fact Turkey has been openly supporting, aiding, abetting and assisting ISIS is simply ignored.

The Turkish and Saudi Arabian military coalition, combined with NATO resources and aid, will now use military means to gain its political and diplomatic goals. Turkey will deny the Kurds full control of its border with both Iraq and Syria. Under the NATO airpower umbrella, Turkey will control Northern Syria both in the air and on the ground, at least once the ground invasion starts.

It looks like my 72 hour time frame didn’t factor in NATO hysteria at the thought of actually fighting Russia. However, Turkey just went to plan B. Plan B being to create a terror attack that would give cover to Turkey’s real intentions.

I also have to say Turkey better move quickly. If they do not, Northern Syria, all the way to the Turkish border, will be taken over by the Kurds. Once that happens, Turkey and Saudi Arabia will be faced with the total collapse of their proxy forces they have funded and supplied in the vain hope of overthrowing Assad junior. Assad is looking more durable by the day. Russia has complete air superiority in Syria, and Iran is reaping the gains of creating not only a Kurdish state in Northern Syria, but a Shia state in both Iraq and the rest of Syria. Obviously, the big winners here are Russia, Iran, the Kurds, and Assad’s newly functional government. Assad was predicted to fall last June, but he is now secure.

I am saying Turkey or Saudi Arabia can’t back off now, or they will face total disaster. Yom Kippur War version two is simmering along nicely in my view. The Ides of March, and you can ask Julius Caesar about that one, are the outer limit for Turkey or Saudi Arabia to act.

I keep track of the numbers of people who view my blog, as well as what countries they come from. I am pleased to say I have viewers from not only the USA and Canada, but India, Brazil and Russia. I would be particularly interested in any comments my Russian viewers would like to make. One of the things I am trying to do here is create a more interactive blog.
