Jesus is a Communist; Russell ‘texas’ Bentley on good and evil:

https://www.fort-russ.com/2018/11/texas-politics-and-religion-good-and-evil-in-the-world-today/

Gina Haspel is an apropos follow-on subject to Bentley’s recalling ‘People of the Lie’ as evil incarnate pointing to Haspel’s pubescent girl-hots for Hollywood’s Jack Bauer:

“That the series was supported by the CIA shows that Haspel was not the only one with the 24 mentality, and that she had started to believe her own Agency’s propaganda”

https://www.spyculture.com/the-24-mentality-the-cia-torture-and-the-ticking-bomb-scenario/

Well, it (in a perverted way) makes perfect sense that an agency run by a woman who derives her world-view from action-entertainment fiction (a phenomenon consistent with CIA top brass for far too long) wouldn’t have a clue about who they’re dealing with in Turkey, a NATO ‘ally’ where Salafi philosophy has been making inroads over the past 30 years:

“Salafi discourse has made considerable inroads in Turkey over the past 30 years, making contributions to sectarianism in ways that have yet to be fully studied and understood”

Now, if our several NATO intelligence chiefs had been studying this necrotic evolution undermining Turkey’s democracy, rather than watching 24’s Jack Bauer saving us from fictional bad guys, our Western democracies leadership might have some concrete idea of just how screwed we’ve become when it turns out the guy in charge of Turkey’s intelligence is a bona fide Salafi terrorist with a real history:

[Turkish intelligence chief Hakan] “Fidan was a prime suspect in a series of terrorism attacks in the 1990s — when Yayla worked as a police officer in Ankara. The attacks involved targeted assassinations of leftwing Turkish intellectuals affiliated with the newspaper Cumhuriyet, in the form of car bombings and exploding parcels. The victims included journalist Ugur Mumtu, women’s rights activist Bahriye Ucok, and intellectual Ahmet Taner Kislali.

“Police operations traced the perpetrators of the attacks to a terrorist cell run by the [al-Qaida affiliated] Turkish Hizbollah (TH). Two key individuals now close to Erdogan were identified by police as members of the cell: Hakan Fidan and Faruk Koca, a founding member of the ruling AKP”

Nafeez Ahmed @ https://medium.com/insurge-intelligence/former-turkish-counter-terror-chief-exposes-governments-support-for-isis-d12238698f52

Now, what do you suppose this portends for the Western European democracies when a documented Salafi terrorist is chief of Turkish intelligence, serving a regime that flushed a million refugees out of Turkey and into the European Union?

“According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), 4.8 million have fled to Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt and Iraq, and 6.6 million are internally displaced within Syria. Meanwhile about one million have requested asylum to Europe. Germany, with more than 300,000 cumulated applications, and Sweden with 100,000, are EU’s top receiving countries”

Whose ‘blind spot’ are we talking about in this next? Erdogan’s? I doubt it. “Speculate” is the wrong word:

“The willingness of some Turkish politicians and high-ranking members of the security forces to counter the Islamic State is also in doubt. In early February, more than 10 high-profile Islamic State members — including the “emir” of Diyarbakir and militants who had been involved in bombing attacks in Istanbul, Ankara, and Gaziantep — were abruptly released by judges. In many cases, Turkish intelligence officials who did not see the group as the primary threat pressured the judiciary to let dangerous suspects go despite the fact that prosecutors had sought extremely long prison sentences for them. Since Turkey has been accused of recruiting thousands of former Islamic State fighters to attack Kurds in Syria, some speculate that the release of Islamic State members without explanation could be the result of a backdoor deal with the Turkish intelligence service”

Foreign Policy: https://foreignpolicy.com/2018/02/15/erdogans-fatal-blind-spot/

Those EU nations refusing refugee quotas (and associated terror cells) appear to have better information on what Merkel has actually accomplished; her intelligence service supporting the insurgency in Syria is one of the parties directly responsible for the refugee wave. The question that has to be asked is, was terrorizing Syria, and then milking Syria for its working class to bolster Germany’s aging demographic, worth the Trojan Horse a closet Salafi regime’s intelligence service has, beyond question, planted in the heart of the European democracies?

If Astynome were beautiful, the same cannot be said of these Trojans’ whorse Merkel; whose gate opening geopolitical acumen resembles the intelligence of an aging Flanders mare in estrus taken by an artificial stud. Homeric legend set aside, we should recall it was a German, Heinrich Schliemann, looted ancient Troy. Since, the German misanthropist hasn’t shed its spots and karma is going to be Germany’s vicious miststück.

‘Beware of Greeks bearing gifts’ or ‘Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth’?

My international readers will understand the first admonishment, but outside of a horse culture, the second might bear some explanation. So, the anecdote:

It was Summer of 1977, at the Sportsman Bar in Columbia Falls, Montana, I was drinking with a friend, George, when a grizzled sheepherder decided to interrogate us, for the fact of our long hair and his desire to know if we were hippies or the fundamentally different ‘mountain people.’ Sort of like you wouldn’t necessarily know by superficial glance, whether a horse was six years old or sixteen years old. After a few short, unsatisfactory answers to his rude interjections, the old shepherd suddenly demanded to know “How old do you think I am?” George and I looked at each other and ignored this question. Our ignoring him did not derail his determination, however, and he answered his own inquiry with a solemn and and assertive “I am forty five.”

With a nod of the head towards the ancient one (he couldn’t have been a day under a badly beat up sixty years, by all outward appearance, and looked a full ten years older or more than that) I told George “You had better check his teeth.”

My indirect but satisfactory reply caught the old man just as he was taking a swallow of his beer (as if to punctuate his declaration) and he blew the beer out his nose with involuntary laugh and as well choked on significant amount of brew that went down his windpipe and began a coughing fit so severe it changed the color of his complexion and looked as though he actually might not survive.

With the old man hanging onto the bar with both hands so as not to collapse while struggling to find his ability to breathe, George’s and my conversation went something like this:

George: My God, Ron, ‘better check his teeth’ was a little harsh.

Myself: If he dies, whose fault is it? We didn’t initiate his ass-holiness.

It seemed like five eternities, but could not have been five minutes, finally the old man had recovered his breath, and altogether satisfied we were not hippies, afterwards left us alone. As a matter of fact we were ‘mountain people’, both young war veterans who were expert horsemen and local hunters influenced by the indigenous tribal culture reflected in our long hair; rather far away, philosophically speaking, from your typical ‘peace and love’ college student/dissident types.

It follows, when it comes to rude people interjecting uninvited crude behaviors into other peoples’ lives, that old man, with his honest sense of humor and ability to laugh at himself when confronted concerning his bull-shit, was possessed of humanity ten thousand times greater than a Gina Haspel or Hakan Fidan.

Speaking of jokes that can kill people, in the 1 November update of this blog’s piece on the Khashoggi assassination, you will find this language:

“When Gina Haspel flew to Turkey to ‘review evidence’, no doubt she compared notes with Hakan Fidan on who has the better ‘insurance file’ where national players represented in the intelligence agencies heads do business based not only on common interests but also liberally blackmail each other”

The very next day, the timing couldn’t have been more fortuitous, a former head of a French intelligence agency made what amounts to an unheard of admission (big mistake), the proposed fact intelligence agencies are often in position to call the shots between nations, in international relations:

Sophie Shevardnadze: But nevertheless, when the Washington-Moscow relationship was already in tatters, sanctions were flung around and everything, heads of Russian security and intelligence services – top brass – went to the United States to meet with their American counterparts (despite the personal sanctions). It showed that if need be, two conflicting sides can still benefit from talking to each other.

Bernard Squarcini: This is where I’m telling you that on one hand, it is a necessity, and on the other hand, if we don’t want to show it, it is done in a fairly confidential way, via the intelligence services, who are trusted by the heads of state.

Shevardnadze: The intelligence services are actually right after the Ministry of Foreign Affairs,’cause their are kind of doing what the Ministry of Foreign Affairs couldn’t do? 

Squarcini: But we work together with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, we transmit all the tidbits of information that are brought forth that might be of concern to them, and even better, and it happened to me personally, often when I went to see my foreign counterparts, I would always go visit our ambassador in that country and would transmit fresh analysis to the embassy.

Shevardnadze: So when diplomacy fails, that’s for secret services to come into play.

Squarcini: Which is very good! Especially useful when two countries no longer talk… Like in a married couple…

Meet NATO’s Trojan Horse

It was 22 October when the CIA’s Haspel traveled to Turkey for a meeting with MIT’s (Turkey’s intelligence chief) Fidan. It was one week later, two remarkable things happened, and both are concessions to Iran; 1) it was announced eight nations, presumably including Turkey, will be exempt from sanctions if they continue doing oil business with Iran, and 2) USA tells the Saudis to wind down and quit the proxy war with Iran in Yemen.

Recalling Squarcini’s “if we don’t want to show it, it is done in a fairly confidential way, via the intelligence services” one wonders who might have been present at the meeting other than the obviously blackmailed parties, that is Haspel and Fidan. Obviously blackmailed, one might ask? Certainly.

Erdogan and Fidan are no darlings of the Iranians, the Turks have been key in creating the perfect mess in Syria, to the Iranians profound concern. If it were not for that fact, the USA military would not be camped out in Syria east of the Euphrates, on Iran’s border, as the guests of separatist minded Kurds. That Erdogan had been too stupid to see this coming, changes nothing. He blew it in the eyes of Tehran. Moreover, it wouldn’t matter who was in charge in Turkey, they’d have to cooperate with Iran in regards to the Kurds.

This brings up Turkey and Iran on opposite sides of the ‘regime change’ endeavor in Syria where the losing Sunni extremists (takfiri-salafi) will be dispersed to the four corners of the world. Certainly by now the Iranians have all of the intelligence they need to expose Erdogan and Fidan’s Salafi nature (with Fidan a member of the Turkish branch of al-Qaida since the 1990s.) The Iranians could live without Erdogan and his minions but meanwhile, when stuck with this bozo leading their neighboring nation, the point has come the blackmailed Erdogan regime can be the Iranians’ useful idiot.

On the Western democracies side, it is simply inadmissible, however consistent with Erdogan’s policies, that 1) a serving NATO intelligence chief of 8+ years, Hakan Fidan, is a bona fide Salafi terrorist with two decades passed since he’d taken membership in the Turkish branch of al-Qaida. It follows, the gross imbecility of the other NATO nations intelligence agencies either 2) unaware of this information and associated potential for career ending scandal or what’s worse 3) knowing but allowing this to go unchallenged, would put every Western intelligence head at risk of not only scandal but in jeopardy of prison term.

The result? This not only explains Iran’s history of exploiting Fidan where he…

“arranged the secret black marketing of Iran through Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s government”

…as a means of breaking past USA imposed sanctions but explains how it is the USA is presently taking steps to make the renewed sanctions regime ineffective enough Iran will survive until alternative (to SWIFT) oil trade mechanism is in place, and conceding the proxy war with Iran in Yemen; following the meeting between the CIA’s Haspel and MIT’s Fidan. This also should explain certain European nations resisting the Israeli lap-dog Atlantic Council’s policy on Iran in regards to reimposing sanctions; raising the question in geopolitical chess terms: what other, related avenues to ‘check’, could possibly be in the works? Stay tuned.

Please allow me to introduce myself
I’m a man of wealth and taste
I’ve been around for a long, long year
Stole many a man’s soul to waste… -Richards/Jagger

Beelzebub, than whom, Satan excepted, none higher sat -Milton

It wasn’t at all long ago*

✓ Turkey’s intelligence chief, Hakan Fidan, named as member of terror group linked to al-Qaeda and ISIS.
✓ Turkish intelligence directly supplied military aid to ISIS for years.
✓ Turkish government siphoned military supplies to ISIS through humanitarian relief agency.
✓ ISIS fighters, including al-Baghadi’s deputy, received free medical treatment in Turkey and “protection” from Turkish police.
✓ Head of ISIS in Turkey received “24/7 protection” under the personal order of President Erdogan.
✓ Turkish police investigations into ISIS are being systematically quashed.
✓ ISIS oil is sold with complicity of authorities in Turkey and Kurdish region of northern Iraq.
✓ NATO affirms Turkey’s role as ally in war on ISIS.

Well folks, if the President’s palace in Ankara can be compared to the administrative office of a regional Hell, Recep Erdogan and his intelligence chief, Hakan Fidan, a member of the Turkish branch of al-Qaida since the 1990s (according to a Turkish former counter-terrorism police chief) aptly fit the descriptions of Satan and Beelzebub respectively; but it wasn’t only Erdogan enriching his family by laundering ISIS & al-Qaida’s stolen oil and his intelligence chief Fidan arranging the shipments of weapons to ISIS & al-Qaida that laundered oil bought. Yeah, that’s what was going on with NATO’s Turkey [pun intended] through 2015, all as the complicit Western intelligence community has pretended the real problem is Assad. That is, that’s how it all went down until late 2015 when Russia stepped in shortly before the Syrian ‘regime’ would have collapsed to the takfiris. We can thank Orthodox Russia (and ‘Vlad’) Syria is not run by head-choppers with slave markets brought to you courtesy of NATO and ‘friends’ (including but not limited to Saudi money and Israeli weapons.)

But wait! It’s not ‘game over’ yet, ISIS leadership and core cadres seem to have found its way (as if by magic) to Afghanistan where they found ready logistics enough to become quickly established and I don’t think it was their arch-enemy Iran let them cross to relative safety let alone supports their new mission. How that happened is likely related to this next, where Erdogan is playing two sides (his habit of backstabbing), we begin with the preliminary circumstance:

According to the [Sochi/Idlib] agreement [between Russia, Iran, Turkey], all heavy weaponry operated by opposition [opposed to Assad] factions must be pulled out of the demilitarized zone by October 10 and “terrorist groups” should be cleared by October 15″

It is 3 October as I write this, and that’s not happening, yet.

“The sources said Moscow already informed Tehran, Damascus and Ankara that in case the above conditions were not fully implemented, Russia would therefore immediately launch a military operation and airstrikes against Idlib

According to the sources, Russia and Turkey disagree over the depth of the decentralized zone, as Moscow is seeking to annex Idlib and other main cities to it [out of opposition control], but Ankara has rejected the offer

“The second disagreement is related to the two main roads linking Aleppo to Latakia and Hama, which are considered the “main artery of the North.” Russia asked that the Syrian regime control the M4 from Aleppo to Latakia and the M5 from Aleppo to Hama before 2019. However, Ankara insists that the roads remain monitored by Russia and Turkey

Preceding, we see the Turkish side seeking to block Syria’s long term reassertion of sovereignty via access to the Idlib region.

“The third disagreement is related to the fate of extremists as Turkish officials want to transfer them to Kurdish-controlled areas while Russian officials insist on “terminating them””

This is the big disagreement in the near term, and the one we’ll be looking at a bit more closely.

“Also, the two sides disagree over the range of the Sochi agreement.

“Moscow wants it a temporary agreement similar to the ones implemented in the de-escalation areas of Daraa, Damascus Ghouta and Homs, while Ankara prefers to have it permanent, similar to the one implemented in the areas of Euphrates Shield and Olive Branch operations.

In plain words, Erdogan wants to keep Idlib province as a ‘moderate jihadi’ Turkish ‘protectorate.’

“Both countries hope that a Russian-Turkish-French-German summit planned for next month could contribute to solving the disputes over Idlib”

This last bit is disingenuous on the Turkish side, Erdogan is playing for time to consolidate Idlib Province in Syria as a laundered al-Qaida controlled district and the Russians have noticed:

“Terrorist organizations Jabhat al-Nusra and Hayat Tahrir al-Sham [both al-Qaida affiliates] have agreed, under pressure from Turkish intelligence, to disband and withdraw their forces from the demilitarized zone in the northwestern Syrian province of Idlib, Al Watan newspaper reported, citing sources with knowledge of the situation.

“Al-Watan newspaper reported, citing sources close to the Turkish Revolutionary People’s Liberation Front, that Turkish intelligence had held several meetings with the leadership of these two groups.

“The sources said that Turkish intelligence had put pressure on the groups’ leaders, while also pledging that the government would not carry out a military operation in Idlib.

“Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, in turn, pledged to change its structure and alter its jihadist ideology so that Ankara does not qualify it as a terror organization any longer, the newspaper added.

“For its part, al-Nusra promised to withdraw its troops and heavy weapons from the demilitarized zone, without any official announcement of the move, according to the media.

“Al-Nusra further promised to disband its so-called “rescue government” that manages the territories the group controls in Idlib. Part of this government will merge with the interim government created by the National Coalition for Syrian Revolution and Opposition Forces”

So, Edogan’s intelligence people, whose boss is known to have held membership in al-Qaida, is rapidly changing al-Qaida’s label and reintegrating them to Idlib’s ‘moderate rebel’® governing structures. That sounds very far removed from Russia’s sensible determination to ‘terminate’ the takfiri terrorists even as Erdogan claims he is working with the Russians to eliminate the radicals. Meanwhile, as Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov had stated the task of isolating the radicals… “is not easy” and hoped that Turkey would “succeed”… it would appear it was easier than he could have imagined (far too easy, in fact.)

This analysts conclusion? Erdogan is in process of backstabbing Putin and it is not a wise choice, particularly considering Erdogan’s backstop is the Russophobic Trump administration’s desire to preserve and protect the bad players, doubtless so they may be employed to do the empire’s dirty deeds on another day:

^ “For the President, who is Commander in Chief, to act as the protective big brother of al-Qaeda and other jihadists must be condemned…”

Of course it should come as no surprise the USA’s so-called ‘efficient institution’ would work with American media to deny Americans this information; and go so far as to have the Department of Homeland Security warn Americans away from Russian media where these facts indeed ARE reported. No surprise, one might wonder? Well, no surprise if you’d had access to this bit of history:

“By the end of 1962 this nation had gone so far down the line following the Agency [CIA], the new Special Forces doctrine, the MAP [Military Assistance Plan], and the new U.S. philosophy as outlined in the President’s Committee report, that it was saying openly it was well on its way to carrying out as top national policy a major clandestine operation so big in fact that the entire government would be involved. Obviously, it could not be really clandestine in the sense that it would be kept secret from our enemies; on the contrary, it was a new kind of “clandestine”, so it would be kept secret from all Americans”L. Fletcher Prouty, Pentagon liaison to the CIA

To carry this operation out, and see where we are today, it were only necessary for the CIA to establish a lap-dog American press. They’ve done it. The Russian press as alternative to American press most certainly isn’t a perfect vehicle but; the Russians will report the treason in DC whereas the Washington Post and New York Times will not.

Concerning chemical attacks in Syria

You are welcome to copy and paste this letter to the German political party Die Linke as well as the International Criminal Court and email it to these addresses:

Dear Members of Die Linke & International Criminal Court

With news of the 7 April 2018 false-flag, alleged chemical attack in Douma, Syria, I wish to draw your attention to these following, unanswered questions, pending in German Federal parliament for more than two years; as finally demanding answers is preferable to the UK-USA-NATO provoking war with Russia.

Thank you and sincerely

(your name here)

Original information provided to members of the Bundestag, presented in December, 2015 by Ronald Thomas West:

I wish to draw attention to recent information regarding your NATO ally Turkey. It had been revealed by two courageous members of Turkey’s parliament that in fact it was Turkey’s federal intelligence services were behind the August 2013 Ghouta, Syria sarin gas attack, killing more than one thousand three hundred ordinary Syrians, an attack NATO nations had blamed on the regime of Basher al-Assad. Your own Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND) intelligence agency should have been aware of this fact from very nearly the beginning, as they have been proactively engaged in Syria and the Syrian conflict, as well as spying on Turkey.

This raises strong questions of possible BND criminal complicity considering Germany’s support for certain NATO nations directly in relation to the Syrian conflict.

What did the BND know and when?

Has the BND, when passing intelligence on Syria to Assad’s opposition through its NATO allies, supported the actors who gassed the Syrians?

Is Germany’s supportive relationship to the Erdogan government a lawful one, in light of this recent evidence?

Has the BND contributed to the geopolitical disinformation blaming Assad for the August 2013 Sarin attack?

Has your parliament been deceived in this matter, particularly your intelligence oversight committee?

Clearly the Sarin case, considering Germany, as a knowledgeable or complicit actor in Syria, should be pursued against the culpable officials in Turkey via the legal mechanism of Völkerstrafgesetzbuch (universal jurisdiction), as well as domestic prosecutions of those German officials, noting the BND particularly, who’ve failed in their reporting requirements and/or conspired to conceal a war crime or crime against humanity.

These should be questions and demand you will present to the federal prosecutor.

Verbatim transcript of screen shots:

21 October 2015

Two deputies from the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) have claimed that the government is against investigating Turkey’s role in sending toxic sarin gas which was used in an attack on civilians in Syria in 2013 and in which over 1,300 Syrians were killed.

CHP deputies Eren Erdem and Ali Şeker held a press conference in İstanbul on Wednesday in which they claimed the investigation into allegations regarding Turkey’s involvement in the procurement of sarin gas which was used in the chemical attack on a civil population and delivered to the terrorist Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) to enable the attack was derailed.

Taking the floor first, Erdem stated that the Adana Chief Prosecutor’s Office launched an investigation into allegations that sarin was sent to Syria from Turkey via several businessmen. An indictment followed regarding the accusations targeting the government.

“The MKE [Turkish Mechanical and Chemical Industry Corporation] is also an actor that is mentioned in the investigation file. Here is the indictment. All the details about how sarin was procured in Turkey and delivered to the terrorists, along with audio recordings, are inside the file,” Erdem said while waving the file.

Erdem also noted that the prosecutor’s office conducted detailed technical surveillance and found that an al-Qaeda militant, Hayyam Kasap, acquired sarin, adding: “Wiretapped phone conversations reveal the process of procuring the gas at specific addresses as well as the process of procuring the rockets that would fire the capsules containing the toxic gas. However, despite such solid evidence there has been no arrest in the case. Thirteen individuals were arrested during the first stage of the investigation but were later released, refuting government claims that it is fighting terrorism,” Erdem noted.

Over 1,300 people were killed in the sarin gas attack in Ghouta and several other neighborhoods near the Syrian capital of Damascus, with the West quickly blaming the regime of Bashar al-Assad and Russia claiming it was a “false flag” operation aimed at making US military intervention in Syria possible.

Suburbs near Damascus were struck by rockets containing the toxic sarin gas in August 2013.

The purpose of the attack was allegedly to provoke a US military operation in Syria which would topple the Assad regime in line with the political agenda of then-Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and his government.

CHP deputy Şeker spoke after Erdem, pointing out that the government misled the public on the issue by asserting that sarin was provided by Russia. The purpose was to create the perception that, according to Şeker, “Assad killed his people with sarin and that requires a US military intervention in Syria.”

He also underlined that all of the files and evidence from the investigation show a war crime was committed within the borders of the Turkish Republic.

“The investigation clearly indicates that those people who smuggled the chemicals required to procure sarin faced no difficulties, proving that Turkish intelligence was aware of their activities. While these people had to be in prison for their illegal acts, not a single person is in jail. Former prime ministers and the interior minister should be held accountable for their negligence in the incident,” Şeker further commented.

Erdem also added that he will launch a criminal complaint against those responsible, including those who issued a verdict of non-prosecution in the case, those who did not prevent the transfer of chemicals and those who first ordered the arrest of the suspects who were later released.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon announced in late August that an inquiry had been launched into the gas attacks allegedly perpetuated by both Assad’s Syrian regime and rebel groups fighting in Syria since the civil war erupted in 2011.

However, Erdem is not the only figure who has accused Turkey of possible involvement in the gas attack. Pulitzer Prize winner and journalist, Seymour M. Hersh, argued in an article published in 2014 that MİT was involved with extremist Syrian groups fighting against the Assad regime.

In his article, Hersh said Assad was not behind the attack, as claimed by the US and Europe, but that Turkish-Syrian opposition collaboration was trying to provoke a US intervention in Syria in order to bring down the Assad regime.

Syria was always about the multi-national corporate rich getting richer. It was RFK Jr, as a larger personality, stepped out of the establishment line and drew attention (however briefly) in mainstream, to the USA’s underlying motive for arming and otherwise supporting the intelligence agency fronted corporate mercenaries euphemistically labeled ‘moderate’© ‘rebels’™

“While the compliant American press parrots the narrative that our military support for the Syrian insurgency is purely humanitarian, many Arabs [correctly] see the present crisis as just another proxy war over pipelines and geopolitics”Robert F Kennedy Jr

Meanwhile, as Plan A or breaking Syria into several warring mini-regions that would preoccupy Assad’s presumed (compliant) replacement, has failed, the reliable multinational’s false-flag journalist, Robert Fisk, has declared ‘move along folks, nothing further to see here’

“The West might hardly believe it, but it now seems the Syrian war is ending – and Assad is the victor” –Robert Fisk

Not. In fact, not even close. The Plan B? An independent Kurdistan encompassing the de facto independent northeast of Iraq, the east of Syria, particularly the oil rich region of Deir ez-Zor, where the USA backed Kurds and Assad’s Syrian Arab Army are in a race for control as the Islamic State ‘caliphate’ is process of military collapse, and eventually the east of the eventually to be ‘non-NATO’ Turkey and the northwest of Iran. The roots of this scenario has been underway for quite some time, as noted at oilprice.com back in 2012 in an article titled The Making of Kurdistan: Oil, Investment and a Turkish Gamble [they lost]

Exxon-al_Qaida_deal.jpg - 1

What we see in the lead-up to today is, ExxonMobil making independent (of Baghdad) deals with Iraq’s Kurdish province and meanwhile paying al Qaida ‘protection’ money in the high style of geopolitical organized crime, all of which had been concerning resources dependent on a corrupt Erdogan for export via Turkey. Fast-forward to this morning and we see ExxonMobil front-man Netanyahu endorsing independence for the Kurds with the Iraqi Kurds upcoming independence referendum:

“Iraq’s Kurds plan to hold the referendum on September 25 in three governorates that make up their self-ruled region as well as disputed areas that are controlled by Kurdish forces but claimed by Baghdad, including the oil-rich province of Kirkuk

“Israel “supports the legitimate efforts of the Kurdish people to attain a state of its own””

Of course, this announcement is a trial balloon put out by Rex Tillerson’s (read ExxonMobil’s) front-man in Tel Aviv; against the updated backdrop of NATO ‘member’ Turkey actually now Russia aligned in every sense but formal alliance. Western intelligence is aware by now Turkey has been lost to Russia in everything but name, and Plan B is an independent Greater Kurdistan; initially comprised of portions of Iraq and Syria, with Turkey eventually to be splintered and instability fostered within Iran’s Kurd population. This will weaken Russia’s de facto ally Turkey with looming civil war, and keep Iran preoccupied with a second front in the USA-Israeli-Arab states geopolitical maneuvers against that nation; as well splinter Shia dominated (Iran accommodating) Iraq. Will Russia, Turkey, Iraq, Iran and Syria roll over and allow Kurdistan to come into existence? Don’t count on it.

With the demise of the Islamic State ‘caliphate’ across Syria & Iraq, Iraq will politely ask the USA military to leave and the Americans will have little choice. However the Americans will not abandon Syria and their Kurdish allies there, as well expect a robust CIA paramilitary support for the Kurds to remain in Iraq’s portion of the budding ‘Kurdistan.’

It is Syria where things are most tricky at this moment, with the race to control Deir ez-Zor province between the USA and Russia’s proxy armies. Meanwhile Turkey’s corrupt and criminal Erdogan has not only aligned with Russia but has increasingly alienated his larger Kurdish population, with a consequential reactive and growing indigenous support for Turkey’s Kurdish insurgency, while Iraq, with Iran’s support, is unlikely to sit idly on its hands and allow Iraq’s oil rich Kurd province to pursue independence unchallenged.

Thus, the stage is set for a wider regional, war with Syria at the center.

Probably the greatest (forthcoming) casualty in all of this, is the greater Kurdish peoples’ aspiration for self-determination; with enemies created on all sides and their guarantor a USA empire on precipice of collapse.

Of course, with a Pentagon not only unleashed to make its own policies independent of Trump, but also firmly in the hands of apocalyptic religious extremists with an aversion to Muslims…

“You’re telling me 28 to 34 percent of our military want 7 billion people to die” [believe in literal Armageddon] … “The simple answer is affirmative”

…and with a religiously stupid CIA in the mix throughout, any expectation of rational solutions should be pronounced ‘dead on arrival.’

And the CIA having its Syria paramilitary operations shut down by Trump? Canned laugh here. Not to worry over this cover story attending a shift in strategy, the Pentagon’s Joint Special Operations Command’s paramilitary operations are welded to CIA

…and has billions budgeted for the Syria arms pipeline through 2022:

The munitions were airdropped to Arab units within the then recently formed Syrian Democratic Forces, SDF, a Kurdish-led coalition currently spearheading the fight to reclaim Raqqa, and the Pentagon’s main ally in Syria

Turkey-Dahmer - 1

Where a killer’s sleaze spreads like fungal spores

Sultan Edogan, a sometimes member of the NATO ‘Gladio’ serial killers club, that is, when not freelancing as a serial killer, has the eyes of what one would presume to be a Ted Bundy or Jeffery Dahmer. Or perhaps an Enrique Prado.

How it is serial killers rise to rule in democratic states is not the subject of this essay; rather how it is Erdogan’s very peculiar fungal infection spreads to impact in most surprising ways, stretching the very idea of ‘cross-purposes.’

We begin with this guy

Erdogan-rock-star - 1

…who as an Iranian turned Turkish businessman was laundering billions in gold bullion for Iran with a wink and nod from erstwhile American ally & NATO partner Erdogan. No one is certain as to exactly why, but suddenly Reza Zarrab got on the wrong side of the ayatollahs (he probably ripped them off) and they apparently put out a fatwa on him and for reasons even more unclear, this moron-tycoon-criminal deliberately fled into the arms of USA legal jurisdiction and encountered this guy…

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/e3/Bharara%2C_Preet_Headshot.jpg

Preet Bharara

…when Reza Zarrab full well knew USA prosecutors would be bent on putting him behind bars forever. Seem strange? It get stranger.

NO MENTION of this high profile prosecution at Preet Bahara’s Wikipedia page:

Erdogan-rock-star - 1 (1)

Trump met personally with Bharara and asked the (in)famous US attorney to stay on in his job. Then, Mike Pence buddy Jeff Sessions fires Bharara and these two infamous morons enter the picture…

Michael Mukasey & Rudy Giuliani

…who’re somehow interested in ‘trading’ Reza Zarrab to Erdogan, like a cold war spy swap. In case you miss the significance of Giuliani’s involvement, he had been a prime player in ‘rehabilitating’ the Iranian terrorist group Mojahedin-e-Khalq even as that group, which had renounced terror, had been blackmailed back into the game as proxy assassins of Iranian scientists on behalf of Israel. Meanwhile, Mukasey had been a Bush era attorney general/specialist in phony investigations that let the guilty off without charges, notably when he assigned a prosecutor who sat on his hands and did nothing to prosecute the destruction the CIA’s torture tapes. And then, it gets even stinkier, Michael Mukaseys son, Marc Mukasey, is the top contender to replace Preet Bharara as prosecutor of Reza Zarrab:

Marc ‘the skull’ Mukasey

two-infamous-morons - 1 (3)

“Marc Mukasey, the son of former Attorney General Michael Mukasey and a ‘protege’ of former New York Mayor New York Giuliani, emerged as a leading contender this weekend after Trump fired Bharara…”

Here’s the simplified math:

  1. Criminal Iranian turned Turkish tycoon Reza Zarrab launders gold for Iran with a wink and nod from Erdogan.
  2. Iran’s ayatollahs suddenly want specified tycoon dead, the tycoon flees Turkey (!) to the USA knowing he’ll be arrested on arrival.
  3. USA attack-dog/US attorney Preet Bharara puts together a case to see the tycoon off to jail forever.
  4. After change of administrations, Trump meets with the attack-dog-US Attorney and  asks him to stay.
  5. Mike Pence’s fraternal brother, Jeff Sessions, fires Preet Bharara despite Trump previously meeting with and asking Bharara to stay on in the job. Trump keeps quiet.
  6. Mukasey and Giuliani (Both personally met with Erdogan on this specific case and Giuliani is registered as an foreign agent representing Turkey) enter the scene in ongoing attempt to ‘broker’ an international agreement to return the jailed tycoon to Turkey via a deal recalling cold war spy swaps.
  7. The judge presiding over the tycoon’s case hauls said tycoon into court and asks tycoon what’s up with Mukasey & Giuliani meddling. Tycoon doesn’t seem to know, tells judge he’s never spoken with either one.
  8. Michael Mukasey’s kid, Marc ‘the skull’ Mukasey, emerges as a leading contender to take over the role of boss to the prosecutor’s office pursuing this case (decision pending as of this composition.)

By the time the aroma of this sewer can be sorted by the bloodhounds, no doubt multiple millions will have been deposited in several off-shore accounts. With Mukasey and Giuliani in the play, certainly the Sultan of Sleaze hijinks will continue to spread like a fungal ooze. Perhaps most significant, Pence ally Sessions trumps Trump’s stated position of keeping Preet Bharara on the job and Trump says and does nothing.

Sundry notes

Erdogan, who’s apparently back-stabbed every partner he’s ever had, whether Assad, Islamic State, Russia, the USA & his NATO partners, now decides he can play the Russians off NATO and the Americans; trying to get a bidding war going. Consequently, Putin, from a culture of consummate chess players, has taken complete advantage of the stinky sultan’s paranoia of Kurds and the USA generals incompetence, generals who prefer studying thousands of year old fairy tales at Pentagon Bible studies, generals who’d rather analyze the tactics of Joshua at Jericho to engaging reality. The immediate result?  Putin co-opts the American plans for a ‘no fly zone’ … the Americans would have used the ‘no fly zone’ proposal to shield the recent losers heretofore branded ‘moderate opposition’ (in reality al-Qaida allied Islamist militants), whereas Putin, fully cognizant of the sultan of sleaze paranoia of the American allied Kurds, plays it to perfection; the new circumstance require any ‘moderate opposition’ groups taking advantage of  so-called ‘safe zones’ to engage Islamic State as opposed to Assad… Jesus, how dumb can a bible studying Pentagon be? (pun intended.) When (more likely than if) the stinky sultan back-stabs Putin in this new arrangement, look for Turkey’s Kurds to magically manifest shoulder launched anti-aircraft missiles (and much more, Putin’s patience will have run out.)

CIA/MI6/MOSSAD partner Amnesty International plays a publicity stunt with a perfectly worthless 250,000 signatures demanding Erdogan release all jailed journalists, as if a man who fired 150,000 from state institutions and arrested 50,000 of the same would give a shit at what AI has to say. AI would have said NOTHING were Erdogan playing ball by the USA’s rules. Pitifully useless ploy for the American propaganda effort now that it’s clear who has gained control over the stinky sultan, and short of nukes, a weak move in a losing game (speaking of nukes, when push comes to shove, what happened to the NATO tactical nuclear weapons stored at Incirlik air base? The stinky sultan had demonstrated he has more police on location than NATO has soldiers guarding those very nukes. One source claims they were moved but this is also denied)

Turkish-American dual national Sibel Edmonds who’d bravely exposed Gladio B continues to erode her standing with a singular myopia when she quite honestly states Islamic State turning on Turkey is a NATO initiated phenomenon … but in a seeming pro-Erdogan context with her ‘newsbud’ promotion stating…

Sibel-newsbud - 1

“Sibel Edmonds exposes a covert operation aimed against the democratically elected government of Turkey in response to the directional change of the Syrian war”

…Sibel misses something pretty big here; altogether never minding the ‘democratically elected’ Erdogan’s past participation in buying oil from and arming Islamic State (not to mention false-flag gassing Syrians with sarin) … look at a striking resemblance to the USA’s immediate post war ‘commie scare’ leading to a ‘democratically elected’ government initiating the National Security Act of 1947 which has altogether usurped the USA constitution and ultimately led to rogue NATO elements initiating Gladio. Our stinky sultan has managed the same: with blown out of proportion Gulen hysteria behind Turkey’s recent presidential-constitutional referendum pushed over the top by fraud (2nd story HERE.) Turkey’s is decidedly NOT a democratic government now.
