SYRIA GOES CRITICAL MASS 2-5-2018

Since my post 24 hours ago, the Syrian situation has now exploded into a real mess. The thing about the Middle East is things can head south in less than one day. The Syrian situation is now headed south, at the speed of light, and will soon be standing next to some penguins. My Doomer Doug doomer sense alerted me to this yesterday. Now it is going off even more than Spiderman’s spidey sense every did. For one thing, I knew that Iran would eventually get involved, and so they have. The first link is from FARS, and yeah they definitely have an agenda, but still are a good source for what Iran really thinks. Iran thinks Turkey should butt out of Syria as the link shows.

Iran Reiterates Necessity for Turkey to Stop Military Operations in Syria

“What has happened in Syria by Turkey should stop and Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity should be respected because if this process continues, it will help the terrorists to return,” Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi told reporters in his press conference in Tehran on Monday.

He warned that the terrorists still continue activities in Syria, and said, “Turkey should pursue issues within the framework of Astana talks and pay attention to Damascus views.”

“We are in contact and consultations with both sides,” Qassemi said.

The Iranian foreign ministry had also in January called on Ankara to immediately end military operations against the Syrian border city of Afrin which is controlled by Kurds, warning that the invasion could create the needed chaos for the terrorist groups to resume operations in the region.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran is following up the current developments in the town of Afrin in Syria closely and with concern and hopes that the operations will immediately end to prevent further deepening and spread of crisis at the Turkish-Syrian bordering areas,” Qassemi said last month.

“Continued crisis in Afrin can strengthen the Takfiri-terrorist groups in Northern Syria again and will ignite again the fire of war and destruction in the country,” he added.

 

In the “that didn’t take long,” we have how Iran’s statements play out in real time, on the ground situations.  Northern Watch, over at timebomb gives us this nugget of Middle East reality 101.

BBC contact Hassan Zaki near #AlEiss:
#Iran militias fired artillery at #TSK forces. 2 Turkish soldiers injured. #Turkey fired back from within its borders with 12 missiles. All targeting Tallet Al Jerdi village.

The Syrian forces led by Assad junior also wasted no time in going after Turkey near Aleppo.  Daniel Boon force fed me this little nugget.

Turkish Media Disclose New US Plan to Boost Kurdish Militants’ Military Power in Manbij

The Turkish-language Yeni Safak daily reported that the US forces are planning to build modern tunnels in the Kurdish-held town of Manbij in Northeastern Aleppo after the Kurdish forces’ US-built tunnels in the town of Afrin in Northwestern Aleppo were destroyed in the Turkish troops’ attacks.

The daily said that the new tunnels are capable of resisting against cement-piercing bombs, adding that identifying the exact location of the tunnels is not simply possible too.

Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said Sunday If the PYD/PKK terror group does not leave Syria’s Manbij, Turkey would move there and towards East of Euphrates River.

In remarks made to CNN Turk, Bozdag, who is also a Spokesman for the government, said the PYD/PKK terrorists had to leave Manbij, a strategic city West of the Euphrates in Northern Syria.

“If they [PYD/PKK] do not leave Manbij, we will move into Manbij and towards the East of Euphrates,” he added.

Tensions are on the rise between Turkey and the US after President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned that his country’s army plan to expand their invasion of the Kurdish-held territories in Syria from Afrin to Manbij where some 3,000 US military forces are deployed.

Since the start of Operation “Olive Branch” by Ankara and its allied militants, Turkey has stressed that its forces would spread to the East, while Erdogan has stressed that his army would soon invade Manbij and continue the assault to the border with Iraq some 900km away.

Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu also warned that it was “necessary for them (US) to immediately withdraw from Manbij” as well as take “more concrete steps rather than words” to end support for the Syrian Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG).

Gen. Joseph Votel, commander of the United States Central Command, had said that withdrawing US forces from Manbij is “not something we are looking into”.

Turkey’s Operation ‘Olive Branch’ kicked off mid-January from air and ground around the area of Afrin in Syria’s Aleppo to oust the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), which Ankara views as a terror organization and the Syrian branch of the outlawed Kurdish Workers’ Party (PKK).

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has stressed that Turkish offensive in Afrin is part of Ankara’s strategy based on supporting terrorists.

The Syrian government has condemned the “brutal Turkish aggression” against the Kurdish-controlled enclave of Afrin, rejecting Ankara’s claim about having informed Damascus of the operation.

Turkish Army Sends New Military Convoy to Southern Aleppo

The websites reported that a military convoy of the Turkish army has entered Syria’s Idlib province and has moved towards Tal al-Eis region in Southern Aleppo.

The websites further said that the Turkish column includes 60 military vehicles and crossed into Syria’s Idlib via the border village of Kafr Lousin.

This is the third time in the last three weeks that the Turkish army convoys try to reach Southern Aleppo.

A Russian media outlet reported last week that the Syrian Army’s artillery and missile units opened heavy fire at a convoy of Turkish military vehicles in Southern Aleppo.

The Arabic-language website of RT reported that the artillery and missile units of the Syrian army targeted a Turkish army convoy by over 30 artillery shells and missiles near the town of al-Eis in Southern Aleppo.

In the meantime, media activists said that several Russian warplanes pounded the Turkish convoy that tried to go through the regions that are under the Syrian Army control near al-Eis and near the highway that connects Aleppo to Damascus.

They further said that two Turkish F-16 fighter jets flew over Kamari region where the Turkish military column was targeted by the Syrian artillery and missile units, adding that five Russian fighter jets were also flying over Abu al-Dhohour in Southeastern Idlib.

Also, dissident-affiliated sources reported that the Turkish warplanes flew over Aleppo airspace to provide back-up for the Turkish military column in Tal (hill) al-Eis and bombed a region in al-Hadher.

Local sources said that almost 100 military vehicles, including 15 tanks of the Turkish army together with military equipment of Al-Nusra Front (Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at or the Levant Liberation Board) entered Syrian territories and tried to deploy behind Tal al-Eis that overlooks the Syrian Army’s positions in al-Hadher region in Southern Aleppo.

Militant-affiliated websites said that the Turkish convoy launched attacks on Syrian Army positons after their deployment near Tal al-Eis.

 

WAR CLOUDS GATHER IN THE MID-EAST 2-4-2018

I have two links for you to ponder as the Middle East falls further into chaos.  The first is a statement from HAMAS, they are based in the Gaza Strip bordering Southern Israel, saying war is “imminent,” as in a few days from now. The link is here.

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-02-04/hamas-leader-warns-war-israel-will-erupt-within-days

Hamas Leader Warns War With Israel Will Erupt “Within Days”

Next week a significant war drill will be conducted across Israel by Israel Defense Forces (IDF) together with the American military, as part of the biennial Juniper Cobra military exercise, which this year will imitate a simultaneous missile attack on Israel from both its northern and southern fronts.

Meanwhile, as Israel prepares for armed conflict, Al Hayat, an Arabic-language London-based newspaper, writes that Hamas’ chief Yahya Sinwar has ordered the Gaza-based Islamist militant group on high alert, indicating that war is a “95 percent probability” and it could erupt in hours or within days.

According to Haaretz, Hamas’ chief in Gaza anticipates Israel will use the upcoming military exercises in the south to spark new conflict, and as a result Hamas has started preparing the Gaza Strip for a military incursion by Israel forces:

Sources that have met with Yahya Sinwar, Hamas’ political leader in Gaza, say that Palestinian factions believe that Israel will use a training exercise planned on the southern front to open a military operation against Hamas. The report further said that the military wing of Hamas has declared a state of high alert, evacuating sites and headquarters and even deploying road blocks accross the Strip.

Political and human rights activists in Gaza told Haaretz that the atmosphere in the Strip is very grim in light of the humanitarian crisis, some of which involves the non-implementation of the reconciliation agreement between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority and mutual recriminations between the PA and Hamas over the freeze in talks.

Hamas’ war preparations in the Gaza strip are in anticipation that the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and the American military could use the Juniper Cobra war drill to strike the Gaza Strip.

The next link refers to Turkish threats to attack US Troops embedded with Kurdish forces in Northern Syria. The link is here.

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-02-04/turkey-warns-us-troops-northern-syria-may-be-targeted-its-armed-forces

Turkey Warns US Troops In Northern Syria May Be Targeted By Its Armed Forces

Last week we reported  that days Turkey valiantly demanded that US forces vacate military bases in the Syrian district of Manbij, the US predictably refused, and on Monday a top American general said that US troops will not pull out from the northern Syrian city of Manbij, rebuffing Ankara demands to withdraw from the city and risking a potential confrontation between the two NATO allies.

One week later, in the latest dramatic escalation between the two NATO members, Turkey’s Deputy PM has warned that US troops fighting alongside Syrian Kurdish militias in the same uniform may be targeted by the Turkish army due to the difficulty of distinguishing them in the heat of battle, effectively stating that US troops in northern Syria are now “fair game” in the ongoing deadly conflict.

Speaking to CNN Turk on Sunday, Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said if US troops wear “terrorists’ clothes” and find themselves among “terrorists” of the Kurdish YPG forces attacking the Turkish troops, “there is no chance that we will make a distinction at this point.”

TURKEY’S SYRIAN JIHAD 2-1-2018

Turkey’s Erdogan is nothing if not consistent in his lunacy. Like Adolph Hitler, nobody can say that Erdogan hasn’t been very clear about what he is really up to in his “Operation Olive Branch.” The invasion of Syria by Turkey has one single goal. It is to annex most of Northern Syria directly into Turkey. Turkey is now in full Restored Ottoman Empire mode. I’m not sure if the USA, the EU, NATO have twigged to the fact that, in Erdogan, they really do have a Turkish leader that thinks he derives his political mandate from Allah. I wonder if they get the things now driving Erdogan’s policies are Imperial, militaristic ones. Smirk all you want when Erdogan’s claims a bird sent by God anointed him to rule. Smirk, and go back to your Western lifestyle, but understand that whatever “we” think, in Erdogan we have a Turkish leader who dreams of a restored Ottoman Empire, and his role as the Sultan, under Sharia law, of that empire.

Here is a good summary of the current Turkish jihad in Syria.

https://www.activistpost.com/2018/01…-of-syria.html

January 30, 2018

By Brandon Turbeville

Turkey has invaded Syria to fight against the Kurds. Turkey is fighting alongside FSA terrorists while the United States, a Turkish ally is fighting alongside Kurdish terrorists. The Syrian military is pushing northwest toward Idlib city and the Russian, Iranian, and Hezbollah forces remain in the country to stabilize the situation and defeat jihadist groups continuing to operate there. The Kurds work with the FSA but the FSA is now working with the Turks. The FSA also works with the United States who in turn works with the Kurds.

Finally, here is my post on the subject. THE KEY SENTENCE IS “WE ARE NOW DEALING WITH A TURKISH JIHAD BASED ON MILITANT ISLAM AND IMPERIAL OTTOMAN DESIRES.

TURKEY’S JIHAD IN SYRIA

Create the crisis. Exploit the crisis. Create the problem; provide the solution. Yep, standard globalist, New World Order modus operandi now in play. Trump foolishly believed the LIES about Assad junior using nerve gas when Syrian jets blew up a warehouse full of our erstwile “anti-assad allies.” Trump also forgot about the SARIN GAS caught coming over the Turkish border by our allies.

And now, Trump is being lied to yet again by the traitors in the CIA, the neocon warmongers et al. Now Assad junior, for all his faults, is the one guy not raping and murdering Christians in Syria. NO, that is our “allies” doing that.

Let me clear here: Erdogan has unleashed the beast and it will not be restrained now. Putin, Hezzbollah and Iran, and assad junior are not going to tolerate any serious threat to the Syrian state. Erdogan is going to annex NORTHERN SYRIA. And I can’t say whether Putin gets that, or is just applying political analysis to what is a Turkish NATIONALIST, RESTORED OTTOMAN EMPIRE, AND MILITANT ISLAM IDEOLOGY. Most of them, the US, the EU, NATO, and Putin maybe don’t get that we are dealing with a TURKISH JIHAD FOUNDED ON MILITANT ISLAM AND OTTOMAN IMPERIAL DESIRES.

Oh, yeah, ain’t things going to get interesting NOW.

 

THE USA HAS NOW LOST IRAQ TO RUSSIA AND IRAN 10-24-2017

Saudi Arabia and Quatar are at each other’s throats right now. There is no possibility that Saudi Arabia and Quatar can take any kind of unified action against Iran. The other thing is Russia has now guaranteed the 2005 Kurdistan borders already agreed to by the Shia Baghdad Central government. Further, Russia has now guaranteed the Kurds access to a pipeline that goes north into Russia, and not west into Turkey. The Shia Central government has just moved to within striking distance of a key pipeline facility from Kurdistan into Turkey.

As for Iran, gang, well Tillerson and Trump can shoot their mouths off all they want to, but it makes no difference on the ground in Iraq. Possession is nine tenths of the law. Iran now controls Iraq everywhere except the 2005 Kurdistan, which again is now guaranteed by Russia.

The “deal” is pretty clear to me, Housecarl. Iran “gets Iraq” either directly under control of the Shia PMU militia, or the Shia “national military,” or the Shia Central government. Russia is telling Iran to back off from trying to take Kurdistan itself.

This is all “spheres of influence” and “buffer zone” level of diplomacy. The Russians are HUGE on buffer zones, which is why they are so enraged that NATO moved east to the Russian borders after Reagan and Bush Senior conned Gorbachev.

Russia is now moving south into Kurdistan in Iraq to counter the NATO move east into the Baltic States, Poland and Romania. Russia has also moved west into the former Uraine.

The “great game” has been going on between Russia and the West for several centuries now, involving the Crimea” ie “charge of the light brigade” in the 1850’s to fighting over Afghanistan with the British. Russia is looking to get a warm water port on either the Indian Ocean, or the Persian Gulf, which they have now done.

Trump and Tillerson have been outplayed by both Russia and Iran.

Finally, looking at naval bang you now have Russia with a naval base in the Black Sea on Crimea, as well as a naval base in Syria, and the deal they made to take over the former British naval base on Cyprus. In addition to all that, Russia now has full access to Basra in Southern Iraq. Russia cut a deal with Iran. Iran cut a deal with Russia.

NATO, THE EU, THE USA HAVE NO DEAL IN IRAQ AT ALL. WE HAVE LOST IRAQ TO THE RUSSIANS AND THE IRANIANS. NOW THAT SYRIA IS RESTORED, MINUS SOME FUTURE FIGHTING TO KEEP THE KURDS IN LINE, THE TRUE NATURE OF THE DECISIVE POLITICAL, ECONOMIC, DIPLOMATIC AND MILITARY DEFEAT THE USA HAS SUFFERED IN IRAQ IS NOW CLEAR TO EVERYBODY ELSE OTHER THAN TRUMP, TILLERSON, THE EU AND NATO.

It hurts when you get your ass kicked. Trump the deal maker simply doesn’t understand the “Great Game” in the Middle East, as played by both Russia and Iran.

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.

PUTIN TRUMPS TRUMP IN SYRIA 5-4-2017

Trump isn’t really doing very well this week. First, he got played by Lying Ryan, Schumer and gang into abandoning his core promise of building a border wall. Sorry, but that ain’t going to happen, so we can just add it to the long list of betrayals Trump has done his first 100 days. Still, I voted for him, had some hope for him, and am bitterly frustrated Trump turned out to be a New York City, Liberal Democrat, with a big mouth and an  even bigger ego. I guess Trump won’t figure out how badly he has damaged himself until he goes to one his rallies and nobody shows up.

If there is one foreign policy place where Trump staked his reputation, it was Syria. After all, as after dinner entertainment for the Chinese Prime Minister, Trump sent 60 missiles to blow up a Syrian Air Base, based on flawed intelligence from the alphabet agencies that despise him, and lie to him daily. The result was the real adults in Syria; namely, Iran, Russia, Turkey and Assad decided they had enough of Trump’s ego. The result is today’s press release saying that Iran, Turkey, Russia and Assad have now subdivided Syria into “no fly zones,” and the US is no longer a factor in Syria. Trump, or more likely his neo-con warmongers filling his cabinet and agencies, must not have got that memo. Assuming Trump is even being notified of what his neo cons are up to, which is questionable, the US has now deployed significant military assets DIRECTLY ON THE TURKISH BORDER WITH NORTHERN SYRIA. In other words, the US is now in a proxy war with a NATO member run by a raving lunatic, Erdogan, who just got voted as dictator until 2026. Yep, Trump sure negotiated a good deal out of that one.

Putin, well Putin is licking his chops, Iran is sneering at us, and Turkey is digging new artillery positions on its  border in preparation for the war they know is coming in Syria. The whole reason all of this overthrow Assad Junior stuff started was because the globalist, neo cons wanted a oil/natural gas pipeline from Quatar to Europe in order to cut off Russian gas and oil deliveries to Europe. From such globalist mind games, we do end up with shooting wars. Well, Putin has just derailed that completely with his no fly zones that prevent the USA from doing much of anything in Syria. Russian and Iranian COMBAT FORCES are now openly deploying into these no fly zones. You can be sure they will be defended with the S-400 air defense systems, which rules out any more Trump missile attacks, or Israeli bombing attacks, although whether Turkey will keep bombing the Kurds is an open question.

 

Putin is plus one hundred on this, since he has now met all of his goals in Syria. Iran is a plus 200 on Syria, since they not only have met all their goals in Iraq, Syria, but they got that cretin and traitor Obama to pay them several billion dollars in cash and gold. Oh yeah, Iran is a huge winner with this announcement today.

Russia, Iran, Turkey sign agreement on creation of Syria safe zones

WTF! TRUMP’S NEW SYRIA POLICY 1-28-2017

AN UPDATE. Apparently Donald Trump has come to his senses and removed the language from the final EO and deleted the dangerous Syrian Safe Zones and No Fly zones. Perhaps the comments from Putin’s spokesman, or Trump’s chat with Vlad the Impaler convinced him Russia, would regard the USA seizing large chunks of Syrian land and air space was an act of war. So, I am good with Trump, now that he has turned his brain back on.

What is Trump up to in Syria? The link is here.

by Tyler Durden
Jan 26, 2017 8:51 AM
http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-0…lvement-region

As part of his blitz of latest executive orders, which as reported yesterday would
institute sweeping changes to U.S. refugee and immigration policies including a ban
on people from countries in the Middle East and North Africa deemed as a “terror risk”,
a separate order also lays the groundwork for an escalation of U.S. military
involvement in Syria by directing the Pentagon and the State Department
to craft a plan to create safe zones for civilians fleeing the conflict there
.

Trump said on Wednesday he “will absolutely do safe zones in Syria” for refugees
fleeing violence.
According to a document seen by Reuters, Trump is expected to

order the Pentagon and the State Department in the coming days to come up with
a plan for the zones.

Establishing safe zones in Syria would mark an escalation in America’s military
involvement there. In addition to the initial military buildup that likely would be
needed to create the zones, ground troops and additional air power will be needed
to protect them, military officials have said. Such zones would also put U.S.-allied
forces in dangerous proximity to foreign troops, including forces from Russia
and the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

US Skips Over Russian Consultations
Regarding Plans on Safe Zone in Syria

11:57 26.01.2017(updated 13:21 26.01.2017)
https://sputniknews.com/politics/201…fe-zone-syria/

US President Donald Trump’s administration should consider the implications
of establishing a safe zone in Syria, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov
said Thursday.

http://www.activistpost.com/2016/11/…rld-war-3.html

U.S. House Votes to Toughen Sanctions, Assess No-Fly Zone In Syria

On November 15, 2016, the U.S. House of Representatives convened a special session with the normal rules of order suspended and passed H.R. 5732, also known as the Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act. The CSCPA passed unanimously with only forty minutes of “debate” on the floor. Because normal rules were suspended, only a few members of Congress were present for the vote and, conveniently, those members who were present were all warmongers.

The CSCPA, of course, is a bill that both toughens the sanctions on Syria and calls for the creation of a No Fly Zone.

The establishment of a “No-Fly Zone” is tantamount to a declaration of war. Such has even been admitted by top U.S. Generals when explaining exactly what a No Fly Zone would entail. As General Carter Ham stated,

We should make no bones about it. It first entails killing a lot of people and destroying the Syrian air defenses and those people who are manning those systems. And then it entails destroying the Syrian air force, preferably on the ground, in the air if necessary. This is a violent combat action that results in lots of casualties and increased risk to our own personnel.

General Philip Breedlove also echoed this description when he said,

I know it sounds stark, but what I always tell people when they talk to me about a no-fly zone is . . . it’s basically to start a war with that country because you are going to have to go in and kinetically take out their air defense capability.

When Senator Roger Wicker asked Gen. Joe Dunford what it would take to impose a No Fly Zone upon Syria, the General responded, “Right now… for us to control all of the airspace in Syria would require us to go to war against Syria and Russia.”

Trump and Syrian Safe Zones

By Daniel LarisonJanuary 25, 2017, 3:30 PM
https://www.theamericanconservative….an-safe-zones/


a katz / Shutterstock.com

One section of Trump’s draft executive order concerning refugees includes
a commitment to create a plan for the establishment of safe zones (or “safe areas”
as the document calls them) in Syria and “the surrounding region”:

Trump’s support for safe zones in Syria dates back many months.
It has never been clear that he understands what establishing safe zones entails,
but that hasn’t stopped him from repeatedly endorsing the idea.

MY COMMENTS:

I’m not sure what Trump is up to here. He seemed to understand during the campaign that creating no fly zones in Syria would lead to WAR WITH RUSSIA.

Yep, Russia and Syria will NEVER TOLERATE NO FLY ZONES. PERIOD.

If Trump has now changed his policy to create them, it means he is a fool and lied to us.

Okay, let me be clear here. I have no problem with “beating the hell out of ISIS.” No problem at all because they are ANIMALS who routinely engage in rape, torture, murder and are SCUM WHO DESERVE TO DIE.

However, if I understand what Trump and the NEOCON WARMONGERS IN THE US SENATE AND HOUSE MEAN THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT A UNILATERAL CREATION OF NO FLY ZONES, SAFE ZONES INSIDE OF SYRIA. Unless I misunderstood what Putin’s spokesman said they didn’t even bother to inform Russia and Syria of this “new Policy.”

So, if you are talking about engaging with Russia and Syria in direct air strikes against ISIS I have no problem with that. However, the USA is now, apparently building a brand new base in Northeast Syria. The USA is now saying they will, without either Russian or Syrian permission “NO FLY ZONES AND SAFE ZONES.” This is an act of WAR against the independent nations of Russia and Syria.

I can’t put it any plainer: Trump on multiple times, multiple venues explicitly said he would not create no fly and safe zones. PERIOD Hellary the warmonger said she would, and we here on timebomb realized and said that would lead to WAR WITH RUSSIA AND SYRIA. Trump DOES NOT get a pass on that. If he now intends to do what he said he wouldn’t, and implement Hellary neo con warmonger policy, well just F#%$%%% HIM.

Trump doesn’t get to implement neo con warmonger policies without me calling him a neo con warmonger. At any rate, if he gets permission from both Russia and Syria, I am okay with that. If Trump arbitrarily and with malice unilaterally INVADES SYRIA AND CREATES THESE ZONES IT WILL MEAN A SHOOTING WAR WITH BOTH SYRIA AN RUSSIA. IT WILL MEAN RUSSIA WILL GO NUCLEAR.

Now, Trump has shown a real flair for playing mind games, but I AM NOT AMUSED.

Trump doesn’t get to screw around with a potential nuclear war with Russia over Syria. The phone call with Putin was somewhat, not enough, reassuring. Still, WTF is Trump up to here?

TURKEY’S ERDOGAN STAGES COUP 2-29-2016

One thing you can say about the Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan is he certainly has a theatrical streak a mile wide. He has now taken things to an entirely new level of lunacy. Erdogan has just stated that he doesn’t feel the need to comply with any court decision related to the release of the 300 jailed people. He doesn’t respect the court decision. He doesn’t feel the need to follow it, or even accept that is binding. The stunning arrogance of his comments is beyond the pale. We have the Prime Minister of Turkey stating openly he is now beyond the law. He feels no restrictions at all in his behavior, much less his policies. He has, to use the term the opposition is now using, staged a coup. Erdogan is now a dictator in Turkey. He feels no restraint from the rule of law, doesn’t accept judicial rulings, and shows open contempt for court decisions he doesn’t agree with. The only US comparison I can come up with is if Obama stated openly he refused to accept a Supreme Court decision.

The upshot of all this is simple. Erdogan is now beyond the rule of law in Turkey. He feels he can do anything he wants to. He clearly is ignoring the elected legislative branch. He is clearly ignoring the judicial branch. He is now placed himself as not only a tyrant, but as a tyrant seeking to restore the historical Ottoman Empire. The only other world leader who comes near his level of rank craziness is North Korea’s leader.

We have this link from TASS about Turkey’s ongoing support for ISIS.

The new tyrant Erdogan didn’t waste any time in cracking down on the Kurds inside of Turkey.

1.              RUSSIA SAYS ONLY NINE CEASE FIRE VIOLATIONS

https://www.rt.com/news/333874-nine-…lations-syria/ 9 violations of Syrian ceasefire in 24 hours – Russian monitors Published time: 28 Feb, 2016 12:28 Edited time: 28 Feb, 2016 14:31 In the Raqqa province, a group of some 100 fighters crossed into Syria from Turkey. The group later joined forces with other militants and attacked the Kurdish town of Tell Abyad. The 250-strong group was supported by artillery fire from the Turkish territory, a fact that Russia said the US should explain. The Kurdish YPG militia fended off the attack, the report said. In Latakia province, fighters of the Al Nusra Front terrorist group, which is not included into the ceasefire deal, fired mortar shells at a local militia force, which returned fire.

 

 

Erdogan is setting up a situation which is lurching totally out of control. He is not holding back at all. Where all this will end up I honestly don’t know. I will say given Erdogan’s behavior up to this point, and his open declaration of dictatorship, things are not looking good.

MIDDLE EAST LURCHES TOWARDS WAR

It is now being reported Turkey has invaded Syria to prevent ISIS from destroying the tomb of Sulieman. This tomb is twenty miles inside Syria on the banks of the upper Euphrates River. As such, it is a deep incursion into Syria; it is a major escalation of combat between the Sunni Turks and the Sunni ISIS fanatics.
We are now seeing several levels of near total warfare in the Middle East. The first level is between the Sunni, in general, and the Shia, in general. The second level is an internal civil war between so called “moderate Sunni” and the Sunni ISIS and Al Qaida fire breathers. It is important for “the West” to remember ISIS is a Sunni Muslim group; Al Qaida is a Sunni Muslim group; finally, there are both Sunni moderates and hard liners. Saudi Arabia is full of hard line Sunni Muslims who belong to a sect that may not actually support Al Qaida. Jordan is a moderate Muslim nation seriously upset with ISIS for burning the captured Jordanian pilot alive just like Edward Woodward in the horror classic, “The Wickerman.”
Turkey is a NATO member. Turkey may have deployed inferior mobile military forces much deeper into Syria than they can now support. If that is what has happened, similar to the BlackHawk Down movie incident in Somalia, we may have a disaster on our hands. It is also important for people to understand Turkey can, under clause five, ask for NATO military assets to bail it out.
The situation bears close watch due to the “drag in factor.” The bottom line here is Turkey has now openly deployed NATO combat forces inside Syria. The results of that remain to be seen.
