Donald Trump's top foreign policy adviser is Joseph Schmitz, formerly of Blackwater.

Joseph Schmitz arranged for weapons to be sent to al Qaeda linked rebels in Syria.

On 24 August 2016 we read that Turkish tanks have rolled into Syria with US Air Support.

This means that the USA most likely did not try to topple Erdogan in the 'coup' of 15 July 2016?
The New Atlas has an article entitled Turkey Invades Northern Syria - Truth of Turkish "Coup" Revealed?

Turkey has reportedly annexed the Syrian city of Jarabulus.

Jarablus: Turkish tanks roll into northern Syria.
The USA and its allies want to set up bases inside Northern Syria.

British special forces are reportedly in southern Syrian attempting to set up a base.
The US plan is to break up Syria, using ISIS, al Qaeda, Turkish forces, various special forces and various child murdering rebel groups.

"Turkey is fighting the Kurds under the excuse of combatting ISIS," according to the Kurds.

Reportedly ISIS had already left Jarabulus some time ago.

Apparently, the USA prefers the Turks to the Kurds?

There have been predictions of a World War.

Putin Threatens World War Again, This Time Over Syria.

Russia says it is worried by Turkey's invasion of Syria.
Below, is what we wrote earlier about the coup:

The Erdogan government had already prepared the list of 3,000 names to arrest before the fake coup took place in July 2016.

Turkey had already prepared list of 3000 names to arrest before attempted coup - Daily Mail‎

Israel may have helped Erdogan prepare the list.

The 15 July 2016 coup d'état attempt in Turkey may not be what it seems.

Israel may have helped Erdogan to stage a fake coup.

The coup may have been designed to fail.

The man who reportedly organised the 'fake' coup, General Akin Öztürk, served as military attaché to Israel.

Turkey is working with Israel against terror, Erdogan says.

According to Turkey's pro-government newspaper Taraf, the Turkish army's deputy chief of staff, Aslan Guner, bought wiretapping equipment in Israel in 2007.

Reportedly, Israel uses this equipment to listen in to the cell phone conversations of Turkish citizens.

Israel supplies the Turkish military with aerial drones and electronics.

'Israel uses wiretapping equipment it sold to Turkey on Turkish citizens'

If there had been a real coup, the plotters would have announced to the world that President Erdogan had been:

"Rigging elections, 

"Cosying up to Israel, 

"Accepting bribes from Saudi monarchists, 

"Peddling ISIS's stolen oil in partnership with his son and Barzani, the Kurdish strongman..."

Turkey: 'Coup attempt' is highly dubious and suspicious

The 'fake' coup has allowed Erdogan to arrest more of his opponents.

2,745 judges across Turkey, viewed as opposed to Erdogan, have been dismissed.


Brabantian alerts us to the following:

"The planning, organization and implementation of the attempted military overthrow were suspect at best and outright laughable at worst.

"According to Hurriyet newspaper online, some of the privates who were detained told interrogators they were not aware that they were part of a coup attempt ...

"They had been told by commanders they were taking part in military maneuvers ...


"It was 'coup soldiers' who helped to gather Istanbul 'people's midnight uprising' at which Turkish flags mysteriously appeared.

"1000 or so people were out of their cars, with nowhere to really go except Taskim Square, where they were promptly handed hundreds of Turkish flags of identical size and shape on identically sized poles."


Sovereigntea alerts us to the following:

"Media organisations such as Dogan, Hurriyet and others were still operating and putting out pro-Erdogan information, including updating their websites, long after they were supposedly seized by the coup plotters.

Turkey: 'Coup attempt' is highly dubious and suspicious

"Gordon and I were monitoring the Turkish news websites while all this drama was being played out; they continued to operate and the tone of their coverage did not alter one iota – it remained steadfastly pro-Erdogan.

"This was a very strange coup, there were no apparent leaders, no-one came forward to make statements to the public or to try to garner support.

"We have noted Erdogan’s role in:

"Aiding in the terror attacks in France along with his partners Israel and Saudi Arabia, perhaps even the Nice attack itself, we aren’t sure yet, but ALL of the others."

Turkey: 'Coup attempt' is highly dubious and suspicious

Erdogan and friends.

On 15 July 2016, a coup d'état attempt in Turkey was launched by a group within the Turkish military.

The Obama administration swiftly announced it was supporting Turkey's President Erdogan.

Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan (Left) attends a 'CIA-Al-Qaeda meeting' in Libya.

In June 2016, Turkey finalized a deal with Israel to normalize relations.

"Turkish local journalists asserted on social media that several military figures oppose the new agreement."

Erdogan with his Jewish classmate Rafael Sadi. They studied economics together.

Erdogan is believed by many to be a crypto-Jew, and is believed by many to be supporting ISIS.


Ergün Poyraz, in his 2007 book Children of Moses, wrote that Turkey' Recep TayyipErdoğan, and his wife, are crypto-Jews, who secretly work with Israeli intelligence.

Certain Turks are believed to have helped the Powers-That-Be to carry out the attacks of 9 11.

Turkey's colonel Arif Doğan 'confessed that his Turkish intelligence unit committed false flag attacks.' 

There is a belief that the powers-That-Be want to use Erdogan to weaken and break up Turkey.

    1. Delightful turn of phrase :)

      We ain't buying it - is that the smell of a burning Reichstag?

      Just what did and did not happen in Turkey yesterday is going to take some time to establish; however, the key thing to takeaway from the whole sorry debacle is that the dictator Erdogan is still in power and his grip on power was not weakened by the ‘coup’ attempt but rather, strengthened, especially in terms of popular support among the masses.

      Media organisations such as Dogan, Hurriyet and others were still operating and putting out pro-Erdogan information, including updating their websites, long after they were supposedly seized by the coup plotters.

      Gordon and I were monitoring the Turkish news websites while all this drama was being played out; they continued to operate and the tone of their coverage did not alter one iota – it remained steadfastly pro-Erdogan. At the same time, Gordon was on Skype with the Kurdish security in Erbil and it is our impression that Kurdish leader Barzani had been warned in advance.

      This was a very strange coup, there were no apparent leaders, no-one came forward to make statements to the public or to try to garner support; quite clearly, even during a coup, Erdogan’s ego would not allow any criticism of himself or his regime. Who lead this coup? We have no idea as no-one came forward. This is clear proof that the whole deal was a pantomime, a set-up designed to bolster Erdogan’s regime after it had suffered a series of foreign policy failures.

      A real coup would have accused him of rigging elections, cosying up to Israel, accepting bribes from Saudi monarchists, peddling ISIS’s stolen oil in partnership with his son and Barzani, the Kurdish strongman and, most insidious of all; killing the ‘golden goose’ by losing the EU Visa deal due to Brexit.

      We have noted Erdogan’s role in:

      aiding in the terror attacks in France along with his partners Israel and Saudi Arabia, perhaps even the Nice attack itself, we aren’t sure yet, but ALL of the others.
      his refugee game and his partnership with Merkel, not only brought about Brexit but will likely gut Turkey’s greatest market, the European Union, leaving it a broken and empty shell
      what’s with the apology to Russia, oh please, we weren’t buying that one

  2. "They" are extremely desperate to start another world war. WAR = MONEY = CONTROL.

    1. Agreed. The PTB are playing both sides in Turkey, fomenting conflict and chaos. Typical.

      Many greasy alternative media refuse to cover the scripted controlled conflict directed by Europe and the USA and instead they ask us to pick sides, just like the corporate media.

      Good job here nuns and school girls, as usual.



  5. Predictive programming:

  6. Nice friends, really.

  7. No. If Erdogan had Jewish sympathies, he would be given an easier ride in the Western newspapers.

    1. If Erdogan had Jewish sympathies,
      thank you for the laugh i spit my tea all over my macbookie

      erdogan is a donmeh like the royal house of saud he is rabbi royalty.
      is verbal positions towards israel are all mossad scripted.

  8. BASTILLE DAY FALSE FLAG: 3 facts suggesting that the Nice attack was an inside job.

    MOSSAD fingerprints all over French Bastille holyday attack.

  9. Seen the 3 hours live and read many articles today. From the night vision: a first abrupt wave of information with national television, parliament, airports and other loactions in Ankara, Istanbul plus other cities north of Lebanon under control of militaries. Second wave of stalling situation with people in the streets stopping tanks, people on the bridges blocked by militaries, casual victims and the many informations about Erdogan on a plane going to Germany, England, Qatar...
    Third wave of info with an image that could be used in an Hollywood movie, where turkish people are televised live into the national television studios: people with pohnes, people with flags, people chanting, shouting while the studio monitors broadcast the vary same studio, obtaining the Droste effect.

    Now, today I read some articles and clearly many ones in the know point at the facts that there are some doubts about this Coup. Erdogan has been said to have started the people's invasion of streets despite the martial law, but I have listened to witnesses in Ankara who heard the islamic priests calling for people to move into the streets from the mosques.

    So, it seems that the islamic priests moved the people on the streets, not the Erdogan phone call to the nation. Then, the comments say that Erdogan is now stronger in the leadership. Surely many of the critics toward him are now weaker, after this heroic defense of turkish democracy. Could have military and erdogan done some kind of deal? Could a recently kicked-out high military figure have been used as a scapegoat?

    The skeptics urge to note that turkey could change many views on ISIS, Syria, Kurdish people and foreign policies. If a deal was under the turkish carpet, now Erdogan has to agree with some military ideas as:

    A major distance with ISIS

    An harder grip on Kurdish resistance

    A new positive policy with russia

    If the Coup had to be done, the parliament and all the main politician leaders had to be blocked until an extraordinary session were started (this session was proclaimed last night by the military); also, Erdogan had to be taken... were the Putschists really so lame?

  10. Turkey's events were "increasingly likely a self-orchestrated coup" by Erdogan, argues ZeroHedge, in other words a 'false flag coup', which was

    « all that Erdogan will need to further cement his ruthless, authoritarian grasp over the country, which this morning began with the cleansing of all judges and prosecutors even remotely critical of the 'president.' »

    Within hours of the collapse of the 'coup' -

    - 2,745 judges (!) across Turkey, viewed as opposed to Erdogan, have been dismissed by the Turkish 'Judges & Prosecutors High Council'
    - 10 members of Turkey's highest Administrative Court have been arrested, & also high Constitutional Court member Alparslan Altan
    - Arrest warrants were issued for a further 140 Appeals Court members & 48 Administrative Court members
    - Turkish Air Force head Akin Ozturk has been arrested & charged with treason, and about 3,000 other military personnel have been arrested

    « As of right now, Erdogan has removed the two last hurdles on his way to absolute, supreme power: holdouts in Turkey's judicial branch and in the army » notes ZeroHedge, adding:

    « The path forward for Erdogan - now left with no domestic opposition whatsoever - is all too clear

    The planning, organization and implementation of the attempted military overthrow were suspect at best and outright laughable at worst

    When military coups take place in the middle-east, they succeed on virtually every occasion. But not this one.

    According to Hurriyet newspaper online, some of the privates who were detained told interrogators they were not aware that they were part of a coup attempt ... They had been told by commanders they were taking part in military maneuvers ... Some said they understood that it was a coup attempt when they saw civilians climb on tanks

    A top body overseeing judges and prosecutors has dismissed 2,745 judges across the country. The emergency meeting of the Judges and Prosecutors High Council was held Saturday, mere hours after Turkish forces quashed an attempted coup, & promptly purged the slate clean of anyone in the judicial branch who was seen as even remotely opposed to Erdogan.

    Promptly following that, authorities have detained 10 members of Turkey's highest administrative court as the government pressed ahead with a purge of judiciary officials just hours after the coup had fizzled

    On Saturday arrest warrants were issued for 48 administrative court members and 140 members of Turkey's appeals court: as if members of Turkey's judicial system - long on Erdodan's black list - were involved in the army's failed putsch.

    Akin Ozturk, who was appointed as head of the Turkish air force in 2013, has been detained and will face treason charges ... Local media have named Ozturk as the likely leader of Friday night’s coup attempt in Ankara. Also detained by the Turkish police was Alparslan Altan, a member of the Constitutional Court and most senior judicial official among the scores detained so far. »

  11. 'Coup soldiers' helped to gather Istanbul 'people's midnight uprising' at which Turkish flags mysteriously appeared

    « Following the visual evidence, we have 100 soldiers seizing control of two bridges, causing 1000 or so people to be forced out of their cars, with nowhere to really go except Taskim Square, where they were promptly handed hundreds of Turkish flags of identical size and shape on identically sized poles.

    And this "popular uprising" consisting of a 1000 or so stranded motorists "took out" these coup plotters who were somehow under the impression that this was all a military exercise. After this, we see the execution of a ready-made housecleaning list [of judges, prosecutors & military personnel ...] »

  12. Well, as expected, nothing new


  14. The Telegraph and the New York Times are still sniping at Erdogan, even though he was the victim of the coup attempt - so you can be pretty sure the failed coup was Western-backed, as I suspected. What next? Another terrorist attack? Sanctions because he didn't let the coup succeed?

  15. "Israel may have helped Erdogan to stage a fake coup"

    Not "may have", but "certainly".

  16. Nice: what really happened?

  17. French Security Minister Warns “Civil War is Inevitable” After Nice Terror

    Attempted Coup Turns Turkey Into 'Unstable, Unreliable Ally for US'

    ...something is in the air...thank you!

  18. Erdogan had no choice than to produce this faked coup
    Why is that so?
    To understand the situation in Turkey it is very useful to see this interview with Sibel Edmonds from last December: .

    Sibel Edmonds says, briefly summarized: 1.) Erdogan's disgusting - but less obnoxious than its predecessors; 2.) The entire Turkish politics has always been US-directed.

    Last year (and even before) Thierry Meyssan warned that Turkey will be dismantled
    see: :
    In 2001, the Straussian strategists of the Department of Defence were envisaging a remodelling of the « Greater Middle East » which foresaw the division of Turkey to the benefit of an independent Kurdistan, reuniting the Kurds living in what is now Turkey with those from Iraq and Iran.".
    Also see: : "As for Turkey, whatever the result of the general elections of the 1st November, and especially in the case of a victory for the AKP – the Justice and Development Party [8], the civil war will probably continue and spread [9] until the country is split in two, followed by the fusion of Turkish Kurdistan, Iraqi Kurdistan and a Syrian Arab territory occupied by the Syrian Kurds and the United States."

    There is an Israeli plan ( "Yinon Plan") for dividing the Middle East - and Turkey is there as well 'under the knife'! See: ^.

    Erdogan with his stupid (I think Erdogan is stupid) participation in the destruction of Libya and with its participation in the destruction of Syria and - overall - with his foolish / adolescent dream of a re-resurrection of a Greater Osman Empire for years played into the hands of his US-Israeli enemies.
    The Moscow foreign policy had recognized the attack on Turkey and very early stretched out hand to Erdogan. But Erdogan did not realise the danger for Turkey then. Now Erdogan, finally, recognizes that the destruction of Syria and Iraq necessarily also must destroy Turkey. This particular by again abusing the different tribes of Kurds as puppets.

    Thus Erdogan was forced to make front against the massive undermining of Turkish policy by Washington. With this "phony" coup he has found an ingenious vehicle for the US undermining counter (that was certainly not Erdogan's idea!). The cleansing of the Turkish military (and officialdom) is thus directed primarily against US-puppets and -boarders. Thus the purges are principally not directed against followers of Ataturk secular state idea, nor against followers of this Gulen but against .against US puppets and boarders. Of course these US puppets are often also Ataturk or Gulen fans.

    What will Erdogan do next?
    1) He'll repair the relationship with Russia,
    2) He has recognized that the destruction of the state of Syria has brought Turkey into greatest danger. Therefore Erdogan will try to find an understanding with Damascus (and also with Tehran).
    3) this will necessarily end the close relationship of the Turkish foreign policy to Israel and Saudi Arabia abruptly,
    4.) The hostile attitude of Ankara against the military government in Egypt will give way to a cooperative attitude.


  19. Failed coup. CIA getting sloppy.

    False flag narrative. And just who benefits from that?

  20. Long live Islam and may the ones who plotted the coup perish and rot in hell.

  21. Aangirfan, you write that
    "On 15 July 2016, a coup d'état attempt in Turkey was launched by a group within the Turkish military.
    The Obama administration swiftly announced it was supporting Turkey's President Erdogan."
    This is simply not the case. In fact what happened was that US Secretary of State John Kerry made a statement one hour after the coup began that he hoped there would be "continuity", clearly implying that the US was supporting the plotters.
    “I hope there will be stability and peace and continuity within Turkey, but I have nothing to add to with respect to what has transpired at this moment,” he said.
    Only after four hours when it became clear that the plot had failed did the US come out and state it's support for the elected government.
    "After the US Ambassador in Turkey John Bass learned about the military coup attempt at 22:00 local time, he called the US State Department."
    "Only 40 minutes later, US Secretary of State John Kerry issued a statement that the US stands for normalization of the situation in Turkey."

    "The statement by the US didn’t contain any hint of support for Turkey's democracy, the newspaper reported, citing diplomatic sources in Turkey."

    "Some political circles interpreted this statement that the US was waiting for the results of the military coup attempt in Turkey.
    Only at 02:05 (GMT + 3 hours), when the military coup attempt failed, the White House issued a statement in which it clearly expressed support for democracy in Turkey."
    Another detail that points to the authenticity of the coup, at least from the US point of view, is that the US military removed all families from the Incirlik base at the start of April, offering the laughable ISIS threat as a pretext.
    "The Defense Department on Tuesday ordered the evacuation of hundreds of military and civilian dependents from Turkey, including Incirlik Air Base, due to increased concerns about security."
    Incirlik is highly secure and not vulnerable to guerilla attack by the likes of ISIS, the ordered departures appear to be part of clearing the decks in preparation for the coup.
    Why did the US back the coup against Erdogan?
    The primary motive for the US backing the coup appears to be that the US and Israel are strong backers of the Kurdistan project, and a more general redrawing of borders within the region, whereas Turkey opposes all those things.Turkey is the strongest and most vehement opponent of the Kurdistan project.
    Turkey's entrance into Syria is thus primarily motivated by the desire to prevent the US backed Kurdish forces from achieving victory over ISIS in northern Aleppo and seizing a large section of the border with Turkey to be used as a base to launch operations against the Turkish military in Turkey where a guerilla war continues between the PKK and the Turkish army.

  23. So sad & troubling in all of this, the violated rights of the Kurds ... with the US & Russia both colluding with Turkey, Iran & Syria to deny them those rights & murder them ... with additional collusion from corrupt Iraqi Kurdistan leader Barzani, selling out his own people, & impoverishing the Kurds whom he governs

    In the Andrew Korbyko article linked above on Global Research, Korybko - a pro-Russian Polish writer - acknowledges that the US & Russia are in collusion here

    But Putin-adoring Korybko ignores the moral question of why the Kurds don't have the right to secede from oppression in the 4 different countries that carve up Kurdistan

    Korybko doesn't say much re why it is ok for Russia to support killing Kurds ... Korybko only citing the perverted rubbish idea of 'state territorial integrity' ... forgetting that Korybko himself rejects that notion when Nato does its rubbish propaganda re Crimea-Ukraine

    Kurds are as oppressed as the Poles during the 1795-1918 partition that carved up Poland amongst Russia, Prussia-Germany & Austria-Hungary

    1918 Versailles promised nations to both Poles & Kurds, Poles got their country but the Kurds were betrayed when the European carve-up of Turkey failed

    Kurds are abandoned by all the big powers in collusion, just like the Palestinians, whose children are being killed by Russian citizen soldiers who are now about 20% of the Israeli army, with both the USA & Russia being 'great friends' of Israel

    And tho Israel supports 'Kurdistan' for its own unhealthy reasons, Israel seeking to fragment other countries in the region ... that does not nullify the rights of 40 million Kurds, living in contiguous space, to have their own country with natural population borders

    Iran continues to hang Kurds in slow-torture hangings by the dozens & hundreds each year ... Turkey has been killing Kurds, & moving migrant Arabs into their region, in a quasi-genocidal ethnic cleansing & suppression programme

    Syria's Assad has recently begun bombing & killing his own Kurds now, with Russia backing him ... betraying his earlier promises for Syrian Kurdish autonomy

    The Kurds, the Palestianians ... abandoned by the big powers to suffer & die, & wait yet much longer for justice

    The Kurdish abandonment, is more clear evidence Putin is not the 'opposition hero' that people assume ... he is a rival oligarch playing a profitable conflict-game in secret partnership with the West

    1. Spot on analysis - we are inveigled to cheer for one or another of a group of puppets all controlled by the same hidden hand - "by deception you shall rule them" ...

      whilst cheering on the demise of the western world and rooting for it's replacement by a phony "eastern sunrise" fronting for the usual suspects.

      Excellent timing,aang, to review the phony coup in the light of it's next phase -

      "subgroupings such as Kurdish, Armenian, Circassian etc., are not held allowable for the Ankara regime. In fact those who self-identify under any of those groupings are 'infidel' to the State. And as 'infidels' in this double sense, the rebellious character of the Kurdish or Alevi person demands maximum punishment.
      Incredibly, in the space of but months, we've reached that point - where close to half of the nation's people will be deemed "infidels" by the religious fanatics who have seized total political control - via their coup against the army"...

  26. Erdogan's latest false flag in Gaziantep killing Kurds in Turkey

    So Erdogan could kill more Kurds inside Syria ... with Russia-USA-Assad-Iranian assistance

    Lawyer - journalist Darius Shahtahmasebi writes about how it seems that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has staged a false-flag attack killing more than 50 Kurds at Gaziantep, Turkey on Sunday 21 Aug 2016, falsely blaming 'ISIS' -

    So that Erdogan could kill even more Kurds inside Syria, on the pretext of 'attacking ISIS' ...

    (With Russia-USA-Assad-Iranian assistance, after Assad's attack killing his own Kurdish citizens, was rebuffed successfully by the Kurds)

    Shahtahmasebi notes that in 2015, the voting success of the Kurdish political party in Turkey, the HDP, threatened to de-rail Erdogan's plans to consolidate power in Turkey. This was followed by terrorist attacks in 2015 & 2016 blamed - falsely, it seems - upon the Kurds, who had no reason to sabotage their increasing political power inside Turkey.

    Now after Erdogan's 'dirty deal' with Moscow, this new terror attack killing Kurds last weekend, is blamed on 'ISIS in Syria', with the main 'evidence' of this, being only Erdogan's own claims

    Now leading to a joint Russian-US-Turkish-Iranian-Assad killing of Kurds inside Syria, preventing the 'Kurdistan' that Erdogan & many Turks fear & hate more than anything in the world

  27. The Anti-Semitism Smear Against Canadian Greens, by Yves Engler


    Sticks and stone may break my bones, but names will never hurt me — and they may come back to haunt the name-callers.

    In finding anti-Semites behind every challenge to Canadian complicity with Israeli colonialism, mainstream Jewish organizations are emptying the term “anti-Semitism” of its historical weight.

    “The Green Party of Canada’s vote in favour of the anti-Semitic boycott campaign against Israel shows the party has been infected by a vicious strain of anti-Jewish hate,” said the President of Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center for Holocaust Studies Avi Benlolo. In case anyone missed his point the head of the self-described “top Jewish human rights foundation in Canada with a substantial constituency” added that the Green’s “sole foreign policy is based on anti-Semitic hatred.”

    The Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs and B’nai B’rith released only slightly less wild statements in response to the Greens supporting “the use of divestment, boycott and sanctions (“BDS”) that are targeted to those sectors of Israel’s economy and society which profit from the ongoing occupation of the OPT [Occupied Palestinian Territories].”

    The Greens’ resolution, which is basically official Canadian government policy – based as it is on two states and the illegality of the settlements – with a little added pressure, freaks out Israeli nationalists because they understand it is a crack in the decades-old settler state solidarity shield of invincibility.

    So, establishment pro-Israel organizations are increasingly shrill in smearing the growing Palestinian solidarity movement. While supporters of Palestinian rights generally ignore these smears or reply that it’s not anti-Semitic to stand up for Palestinian rights, defensive strategies aren’t sufficient. The anti-Semitic label is too potent to not confront directly.

  28. Europe earning billions from Mid-East arms sales

    « A report conducted by a team of reporters from the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network (BIRN) and the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) found a group of European nations has been funneling arms into the Middle East region since 2012, making at least 1.2 billion euros in the process ...

    « The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) found the United Kingdom was second only to the United States in arms sales, making up 10.4 percent of the total $401 billion worth of arms sold around the world for the 2014 period ...

  30. Kurds have 'no friends but the mountains' after betrayal by US, Russia, Syria

    This is the future of all of us

    Wladimir van Wilgenburg writes of how Kurds have 'no friends but the mountains' after their betrayal by USA, Russia & Syria, all joining with Iran in killing them now ... and even China joining in support now

    The Kurds are a symbol of what will happen to all of us ... denial of our rights by a 'grand agreement' of great powers & oligarchs

    Most all large & middle powers & national governments detest secession, separatism & the will of subject populations ... almost no one will accept having fewer people & wealth to control ... the 'velvet divorce' of Czechia & Slovakia on 1 January 1993, was a rarity ... All the great powers resent the movements in Scotland, in Catalonia & Basque country & many other places

    Not to say that Kurds are poster-children for 'justice' ... when gaining power - like all oppressed peoples - Kurds can be as ruthless as their oppressors ... e.g., the corrupt Barzani in Kurdish Iraq, where Christians & others report oppression & property seizure by Kurds

    After Poland was 'wiped off the map' in 1795-1918, the newly independent Poland quickly became fascist, under Marshals Józef Pilsudski (friend of Adolf Hitler) & then Edward Rydz-Śmigły, who joined with the British to provoke Hitler & make World War 2 easier

    And Poland is still not a pretty place today, its right and far-right parties foolishly aiding US-Nato war-mongering ... & following-up 'Holocaust denial' laws with laws punishing those who claim Poles were responsible for killing Jews etc

  31. Putin supports Shia Iran as counter to Sunni Russian Muslims, anticipates 'long war'

    Real reason for 'nuclear deal with Iran' - keeping the Muslim world in conflict & aflame between Shia & Sunni, & unable to oppose Western oligarchs

    Asia Times reports that Vladimir Putin is telling people he meets, that he is supporting & making alliances with Shia Iran, in order to support a counter-force to the 15% of the Russian Federation who are Muslims & nearly all Sunni ... typical Russian policy today, to keep conflict fires burning in many places

    Putin knows his Muslim populations are resentful, the beaten-down Chechens in particular still wishing revenge for Russian domination & massacres over the last 200 years, since Russia conquered their lands & seized them from Persia

    Muslims & others in Russia believe Putin joined in conducting 'false flag' terror attacks blaming Muslims, in order for Russia to defeat secession wishes by Chechnya & Dagestan, Muslim republics which are key to oil & gas wealth much desired by Putin's oligarchy & Gazprom

    We have here a sign of the real reason behind the sudden Western turnabout on the 'Iran nuclear sanctions' nonsense ... sometimes argued to have taken place, because Iran finally agreed to let its country be penetrated by Rothschild-associated banking interests

    But a deeper reason, may well be to keep the Muslim world in conflict with itself as well as the West, with a strong Shia centre opposing the 80% of global Muslims who are Sunni, led by Saudi Arabia

    Conflict amongst Muslims serves the Western oligarchy very well ... classic divide & rule, an impediment to Muslims successfully organising themselves ... and a boost to the nearly half trillion a year in global weapons sales to poor & emerging nations who starve their own people to purchase military hardware
