  • Turkey's Erdogan warns Russia not to 'play with fire'

    So Turkey relies on other nations for it’s petroleum products and makes some money on the pipelines transiting to Europe, some of which carry Russian products.

    Syria is also a proposed/desired transit point for Qatari gas pipeline which would supply Europe and compete with Russian gas. But Assad will not allow the pipeline.

    This makes for an interesting situation.

    “Did the US arm the FSA or not?”

    It’s rather frustrating trying to describe whose who when most people use the logic:

    -The US supported Britain during WWII
    -Britain is part of Europe
    -Nazi Germany was part of Europe
    -The US supported the Nazis during WWII.

    Too many ZeroHedge pro-Russia dupes and ignants on this board.


    The four major ME regional terrorist organizations are:
    ISIS (Sunni)
    Al Qaeda (Sunni)
    Hezbollah (Shia)
    Hamas (Shia)

    Syria supports ME Shia terrorism.
    Iran supports ME Shia terrorism.
    Russia supports Syria and Iran

    The US supports Iraq fight Sunni terrorism (ISIS and Al Qaeda) in Iraq.
    The US supports the Syrian FSA (Sunni) fight Assad’s Syria, ISIS, Hamas, Hezbollah, Iranians and now, apparently Russians.

    Notice we support local resistance to regional terror groups and influences whereas Russia supports regional terror organizations against local resistance and ISIS. Their only beef with ISIS is its threat to Assad. They’re leveraging their bombing to help not only Assad but Iranians in Iraq while boosting their own position in the region -for their benefit! This will greatly escalate the level of violence in the ME. Mark my words.

    “I don’t know where you’ve been for the last two years...”

    Well, during the last two years I’ve spent time in Iraq, supporting counter-ISIS air operations. I’ve watched many ISIS get smoked in real time.

    The West operates under different ROEs than the Russians. Our ROEs will not inflame the Muslim world. Theirs will. We follow something called the Law of War and avoid civilian, non-combatants. Russia also follows the Law of War and does not avoid civilians due to Assad declaring non-regime aligned Syrian civilians enemy combatants. All of them. This distinction is not lost on Muslims looking at Syria.

    The longer Russia participates, the worse things will get. Just watch.

    But only AFTER they bombed the FSA and Western advisors. See how they worked it? They went after “Obama’s terrorists” first then signed an agreement. We knew this was in play when their Baghdad embassy refused to see US liaison officers. Just made them wait in the lobby until they left.

    Assad sponsored and gave safe haven to ISIS, aka Al-Qaeda-in-Iraq, from 2004 - 2010.

    The US does not support ISIS and never has. Only Russian trolls and their websites claim such. The intent is to ridicule the West’s efforts in order to substantiate Russia’s intervention and goals.

    Turkey, Saudi and others supports ISIS. We’ve had unsuccessful discussions with the Turks regarding their cross-border support of ISIS. So it’s going to the next phase.

    The Western allies are trying to protect the Kurds from ISIS, Turkey and Assad as they fight against all three.

    ‘The West’ has people inside Syria supporting actions against Assad and ISIS. Both of them are terrorist organizations intent on de-stabilization and regional conflict.

    We are not on Turkey’s side wrt ISIS. We are on the Kurds’ and Iraq’s side to degrade and then defeat ISIS in northern Iraq.

  • Bush in 2007 delivered eerily accurate warning about Iraq unrest (worthy of repost)

    11/17/2015 3:18:49 AM PST · 25 of 34
    Justa to JimSEA

    You know why he gave this warning? Because the 2007 Democratic-controlled Congress cut Defense Dept. funding for Overseas Contingency Operations (Iraq and Afgn). The DoD was forced to shift money from already funded projects -like the F-22 to fund OCO. The Democrats’ control of Congress and the budget forced the drawdown thru cutting funding. With greatly reduced Iraq reconstruction and development funding the US’s position in bargaining for an Iraqi SOFA was likewise reduced. Reduced funding and no SOFA meant complete withdrawal from Iraq even before Obama proposed it. This is why Bush warned.

    No reconstruction or US troops meant that soon after the US left Al Qaeda in Iraq (AIQ) would grow in strength. When AIQ lost Syria’s support it was strong enough to attack Syria as well as the weak provinces of Iraq. Once AIQ was multi-national it set its sights even further -on a Caliphate.

    In this regard ISIS is the product of the 2007 Democratic Congress. Anyone who knew anything at the time could see this.

    The wealthy, politically-connected Chic-Commies are indeed pushing a replay of Mao’s cultural revolution:

    “On August 22, 1966, a central directive was issued to stop police intervention in Red Guard activities.[44] Those in the police force who defied this notice were labeled “counter-revolutionaries.” Mao’s praise for rebellion was effectively an endorsement for the actions of the Red Guards, which grew increasingly violent.[45] Public security in China deteriorated rapidly as a result of central officials lifting restraints on violent behavior.[46] Xie Fuzhi, the national police chief, said it was “no big deal” if Red Guards were beating “bad people” to death.[47]

    The police relayed Xie’s remarks to the Red Guards and they acted accordingly.[47] In the course of about two weeks, the violence left some one hundred teachers, school officials, and educated cadres dead in Beijing’s western district alone. The number injured was “too large to be calculated.”[46]

    Their Revo fantasy may blow up in their face.

    Don’t be. There’s usually very good optics on the strike targets right up to the point of impact. I’ve watched these strikes in real time. They can put a 500lb laser guided munition within inches of the target. Some strikes, like this one, target individual people. I can assure you when a 500 lb bomb detonates at arm’s length or closer the target is essentially vaporized as you put it. They usually put a 2nd one in for good measure. There’s really nothing but a crater.

    But make a fuss, please. Hopefully the film will be released and we’ll all get to see the weasel go pop.

    Tons of misinformation and misdirection on the whole Syria/Assad/ISIS issue. For every Kremlin troll advocating Putin’s foreign policy there are 3 or 4 dupes who cite pro-Russian websites as sources. Discouraging.

    Assad backed Iraqi Sunni rebels aka Al Quaeda-in-Iraq aka ISIS against US and Coalition forces in Iraq and even sent volunteers and support personnel to Iraq. We collected passports of Syrian KIAs operating away from the Syrian border.

    We took a substantial amount of casualties due to Syrian, Iranian and Russian support of both Sunni and Shia rebels in Iraq.

    Payback’s a bitch.

    Couldn’t give a Rat’s A about Assad, his Iranians or the Russians in Syria. They are all terrorist-support groups who are reaping the whirlwind of the instability in Iraq they promoted from 2004 to 2009.

    Dennis is spot on.

    When each of my kids was ~14 months I did a gender function check. IMO this was the important age when transitioning from generic baby toys to gender-specific toys.

    I put the kid in the front of a Wal-Mart cart. They were taken down the toy aisle of the opposite sex first, then their own gender toy aisle to gauge their reaction and asses their ‘gender identity’ -a big worry for dads nowadays. Both of them registered disinterest, even disgust (daughter) in the opposite gender toy aisle and overwhelming joy and attraction in their gender toy aisle. They passed with flying colors and got a toy to boot. They still get a kick out of the story.

    Their mother just couldn’t understand it at the time. Her response was “How do they KNOW”?

    Yeah, Dennis has it right.

    No one flew under 15,000.

    The insurgents used the unguided rocket attack from 2004 on. I watched one of those attacks made from right outside Camp Alpha (Babylon) the night Fallujah I kicked off. There was a nav beacon at the base the carrier aircraft were using. It was a pitch black night, overcast. Heard the aircraft and went outside. Saw the rockets go up, then heard an increasingly loud engine whine followed a brrrrrraaaappp. No more rockets. Bunch of dumbasses.

    Get the Western MSM crap out of your head.

    Assad is a state sponsor of terror. He couldn’t give a Rat’s A about (his Allawite minority Shia government) supporting Iraqi Sunnis as they had a common enemy -the West. Many Syrians were captured in Iraq, including intelligence services people. Same with Iranians down in southern Iraq. Syria was a known corridor for arms and international Jihadis, along with Iran.

    I don’t care about Pelosi or Kerry. The Dems took congress in Jan 2007. They cared more about opposing Bush and ending the Iraq war than anything else. They wanted the money to spend on their priorities. They went to Syria to get assistance and an agreement to stop funding Iraqi insurgents so the US would have no pretext to remain. Assad did not give them a deal. Greedy, ignorant dumbasses all around.

    ISIS did not “split from Al Qaeda” because the WERE Al Qaeda, Al-Qaeda-in-Iraq is what the Sunni insurgents were 2004 - 2011. They are Iraqi insurgents who have aligned with all types of groups. Whomever leads the group gets to pick the name. That’s about all that is.

    ISIS rise had NOTHING to do with Arab Spring and everything to do with the US withdrawl from Iraq. When the US left there was nothing to keep the Syria-AIQ alliance going. Syria’s objective was met -US withdrwal from Iraq, so they stopped supporting AIQ. AIQ couldn’t stand down and turned on them rather than fully return to Iraq. AIQ kept its sanctuaries in Syria and began forays into Iraq for supplies, lacking re-supply from Syria. They went back and forth between border regions gaining equipment and territory and recruits.

    Get your head out of Western spin crap journalism. Syria is a closed nation. A police state. You really think there was an “Arab spring” there? Laughable. To whatever extent there was one it may have contributed to Syrian Army defectors and the beginning of the civil war. It had nothing to do with ISIS.

    ISIS occured because Syria stopped supporting AIQ which re-emerged under its own leadership and support as “ISIS” whose objective is to overthrow Syria, Iraq and anyone else they can.

    If you want to understand the ME you must appreciate that Power comes first. Thereafter alliances and allegiances are made. The West does this backwards. So Western media-derived interpretations are always muddled, naive and stupid sounding.

There’s no reporting because no journalist is willing to venture forth because ISIS won’t protect them, the Iraqi government won’t protect them and the US forces can arrest them as spies -and will hand them over to the Iraqis -hahahaha. So yeah, no reporting = no activity -and everyone’s fine with that.

    Umm, the best way to “Bring back American jobs” is to de-regulate America’s business environment which favors large corporations and penalizes small businesses. It should have nothing to do with global trade which is based more on monetary policy than government regulation.

    Small businesses have been the leading employers for decades. It’s where economic and job growth occur.

    Have you ever looked at the state and federal regulations required of new and small businesses? They’re prohibitive. That’s where the American jobs went. They’re not being created because the government-imposed risk is too high.
