Ethnic Cleansing in the Middle East…
What is really going on in the fight against ISIS in – Iraq. Because despite the fact that most US bombing has been concentrated in Iraq and not Syria, Syria continues to get all the news. Why?
Part of it is the topsy-turviness of who is on what side. And while Turkey is supposedly on our side, they are bombing our allies fighting ISIS in Iraq. Hello? Yes, Turkey is targeting the Kurds and even Iraq’s military and bombing them routinely. The Kurds are our allies fighting ISIS. So why in the heck are we allowing this?
We’re sending in Special Ops ground troops to Syria, but we refuse to give Russia coordinates of where they and our allies are stationed… This doesn’t bode very well. Not good… Sounds like a suicide mission to me.
And then we have Saudi Arabia killing all the Shi’a Yemeni’s under the guise of fighting Sunni al-Qaeda, and Turkey killing all the Kurds under the guise of ISIS. At the same time the US and it’s allies are militarily supporting these Kurds that our allies the Iraqi’s are killing…while bombing the Shi’a in Syria so that we can ultimately elect our new and improved president because the Saudis, Qatari and Turkish governments said so. Sound like a great military strategy?
Only now we’re asking everyone to pause while we reload… that is, we’ve sold all our ammo and weapons to the Middle East and don’t have any left…
Who are the Kurds? They are a religious mutt – Sunni, Shi’a, Jews and Christian. The Kurds claim that the Turkish government is colluding with ISIS. The same claim Russia has recently voiced and allegedly proven. The same claim Kerry put forth just one year ago that has somehow alluded ‘memory’. Uh-oh…they forgot to erase that Google clip.
But, as usual, it gets better. The Free Syrian Army which was the supposedly ‘moderate rebel group’ supported by the US and Saudi Arabia, was created and rooted in Turkey. This was Turkey’s role in cleansing Syria of Kurds. Riad al-Assad was the former leader of the FSA group after he defected from the Syrian Air Force in 2011. As a traitor to Syria, he was a hero to Turkey and quickly indoctrinated. Turkey embraced him and helped him establish his faction – the FSA. However, just one year later, our finnicky militia commando’s replaced Riad with Salim Idris, and made him a Brigadier General (one star). Ta-Da! Idris, educated in East Germany, received a Phd in electronic radars. He had numerous meetings with Obama and Kerry demanding weapon support as well as food and medical supplies. Unfortunately, in 2013, apparently Idris seems to have disappeared, as in poof, his whereabouts contentious. His replacement, Abdul-Ilah Al-Bashir, was also a Syrian army defector and was chosen to replace Idris. He lasted a few months before the powers decided they didn’t like him any more and his replacement was Albay Ahmed Berri who was captured by ISIS – and released…? Interesting. He was replaced by Abdelkarim al-Ahmed December 2014. Apparently, the US decided at some point in these transitions that these guys were all losers and stopped support, shifting to the Kurds instead.
Today, the Free Syrian Army has joined the ranks of al-Nusra and al-Qaeda in the fight against Assad and ISIS. And the ‘moderate’ have become – the militia. But we can’t say this – in mainstream agenda, because it doesn’t further the cause as in the US was first supporting al-Nusra until the media explained to the military that al-Nusra was al-Qaeda, then they backed off and supported FSA until they fell apart.
So what we have is a bunch of traitors from the Syrian Army taking sides with Turkey thinking that Turkey, the EU, Saudis and US will potentially prop each of them up as the new and improved President of Syria when Assad is – eliminated. Only to have them lose out to the next propped up in command of the Free Syrian Army! And then become less than enchanted…
In fact, it would appear that all commanders of the Free Syrian Army initially ‘defect’ to Turkey before being anointed into the FSA. Weirder is as weirder does – it is the Free Syrian Army that is apparently now providing Russia with the proof that Turkey has been aiding ISIS…I guess they weren’t happy.
It’s old news, but it continues – we give money and weapons to the Kurds while Turkey bombs them in Syria and Iraq, and yawn, we say nothing. In the meantime we continue to give weapons to Turkey…to kill the Kurds with who we arm to fight – ISIS. And as the Turks annihilate the Kurds and ISIS grows, the US is like – what??? How’d that happen?
Exactly why do we, the US and UK, Canada, and Australia, turn a blind eye? Because Turkey, which stands directly north of Israel… is used as a stepping ground for Middle East airbases. The illusion is that Turkey is on our side, when in fact they never were. Read. The Bible.
They are using the US to give them ‘cover’ so as to complete their own agenda – eliminate the Kurds. It’s the same ethnic cleansing that the Saudis employ while shielded by the US and NATO in Yemen.
Turkey was created at the end of WWI when the Ottoman Empire collapsed and the Middle East was virtually parceled out, lines drawn, boundaries defined. However, the powers forgot to give the Kurds their own state and instead they were left to try and assimilate into ‘other’ Middle East countries including; Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran. This didn’t go over too well. These countries held to a nationalistic view in which they did not believe in multi cultural communities as did the Ottomans.
The Kurds were ostracized and denigrated, their culture squashed and even their language squelched. Miffed, they formed their own militia in the 1980’s and began demanding rights. The EU and NATO decided they didn’t have ‘rights’ and declared them a terrorist group.
In WWII, Turkey was considered neutral, but actively traded with ‘both sides’ until 1944 when they agreed that Germany and the Nazi’s were bad guys and decided not to help them any more. Besides, at this point the Nazi’s were clearly on the losing team.
Today, the Turks are supporting both sides again – the west fighting ISIS and ISIS fighting the Kurds. I suppose they thought it worked during WWII without any reprisals, it should work again. The collusion in supporting Turkey seems eerily similar to the US and EU support of chocolate king, Poroshenko, in Ukraine. Ethnic cleansing has left that country in rubble, their economy in the toilet, and a dictatorship in power.
Given Turkey’s absolute hatred of Assad and demand that Assad and his government be ‘ marginalized’, who could be in the backroom waiting to rule the new Syria? Will he be a chocolate king or an indian chief? Maybe we’ll find a postal worker… or the son of a government employee? While ousting Assad has been the agenda, his replacement has been the subject of heated debates with no clear puppet available.
