    President Trump claimed Wednesday that the purported ‘escape‘ of hundreds of ISIS terrorists from a prison in northern Syria was purposefully manufactured in order to draw US troops back into the conflict there.While speaking in front of the press at the White House, Trump described the withdrawal of troops from Syria as “strategically brilliant,” adding that as far as ISIS is concerned “you have a lot of countries over there that hate ISIS as much as we do…So they can take care of ISIS.”“We have them captured. The United States captured them,” Trump urged before making the claim about the...

    Kurdish forces allied to the U.S.-led coalition in the fight against the Islamic State have committed war crimes by deliberately displacing thousands of civilians and demolishing their homes in northern Syria, according to a human rights group. In a report released Tuesday, Amnesty International said that the People's Protection Units (YPG)the military wing of the Syrian Kurdish political party, the Democratic Union Partyhad in some cases threatened residents with U.S. airstrikes if they did not leave their homes. The YPG has been a key ally on the ground for Western forces battling ISIS in Syria. Earlier this year, the YPG...
  • How Erdogan Planned This Ethnic Cleansing All Along

    The Gatestone Institute ^ | October 16, 2019 | Malcolm Lowe
    As the Voice of America itself reported on January 23, Erdogan's plan was to resettle three million or more refugees from other parts of Syria in this "security zone" extending twenty miles deep into Syria. Twenty miles may not sound much, but the VOA omitted to mention almost all the Kurdish towns of northeastern Syria lie within that area. So Erdogan's intention to annihilate the Kurdish presence in that area and replace it with others has been manifest ever since the beginning of 2019. A whole series of Trump's Republican supporters in the Senate expressed outrage over his...

    Egypt: Friends fear that family of ex-teacher of Islam who became Christian may have killed him OCT 14, 2019 8:00 AM BY ROBERT SPENCER The death penalty for apostasy is part of Islamic law. Its based on the Quran: They wish you would disbelieve as they disbelieved so you would be alike. So do not take from among them allies until they emigrate for the cause of Allah. But if they turn away, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them and take not from among them any ally or helper. (Quran 4:89) A hadith depicts Muhammad saying:...

    CAIRO (REUTERS) - ARAB League Secretary General Ahmed Aboul Gheit on Saturday led Arab foreign ministers in lambasting Turkey's military operation in northeast Syria as an "invasion of an Arab state's land and an aggression on its sovereignty". Iraqi Foreign Minister Mohamed Ali Alhakim, president of the current Arab League session, also condemned Turkey's offensive into Syria during an emergency meeting of the body, called by Egypt. The offensive "will exacerbate humanitarian crises, increase the suffering of the Syrian people, and strengthen the ability of terrorists to reorganize their remnants," Alhakim said. Alhakim and Lebanon's Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil called...

    Five Isis militants have reportedly broken out of a prison in northern Syria following Turkish mortar strikes nearby. The detainees fled from a jail in Qamishli city, according to a spokesman in the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) as reported by the Independent. It follows earlier reports that the SDF had stopped operations against the terror group to defend against the Turkish advances. As more Kurdish fighters left their posts, makeshift prisons holding Islamic State fighters would become vulnerable to escapes, they warned. Separately, women affiliated with the extremist group attacked security officers at a camp in one of the...

    The United States for months has been urging European countries to repatriate captured ISIS fighters and their families from northeastern Syria, to no avail, and the U.S. is not about to incarcerate them in Guantanamo Bay, President Trump said on Monday. Were not bringing 50, 60, 70 or even 10,000 people to Guantanamo Bay in Cuba, Trump told reporters at the White House. Were not going to be paying them for the next 50 years or paying to take care of them for the next 50 years. He characterized the European response to Washingtons appeals as another example...

When I arrived in Washington, ISIS was running rampant in the area. We quickly defeated 100% of the ISIS Caliphate,..... ....including capturing thousands of ISIS fighters, mostly from Europe. But Europe did not want them back, they said you keep them USA! I said NO, we did you a great favor and now you want us to hold them in U.S. prisons at tremendous cost. They are yours for...

    President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said Turkey will carry out an "air and ground military operation" east of the Euphrates River, prompting US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) to warn of an "all-out war" to defend the region they control. It was Erdogan's most direct indication of a unilateral incursion into Syria since Ankara and Washington decided to establish a "safe zone" there. The operation, which aims to clear groups Turkey considers "terrorists" from the border region ...

    AfricanArguments.org ^ | October 2, 2018 | Steven Corry
    Early in September, international news was awash with the claim that 87 elephants had been killed by poachers in Botswana. The story originated from the NGO Elephants Without Borders, which received massive publicity and presumably donations as a result. Even the beleaguered UK Prime Minister tweeted the story, while a petition calling for wildlife guards to be re-armed surpassed 150,000 signatures. I know a little of Botswana. A few years ago, I was declared public enemy number one, threatened by a government spokesman on television, and banned from the country. This was because Survival International was instrumental in...

    The use of “technicals” by military forces to round up citizenry as part of genocide. This post looks into the role that (so called) “technicals” play in national upheavals. A “technical” is a pickup truck that has been modified into a mobile heavy weapons platform. These machines have been commonly used in just about every national conflict over the last two decades. Here, we look at the role that they have, and why there are used. As opposed to other vehicles constrained for other purposes. Summary A technical is a light improvised fighting vehicle, typically an open-backed civilian pickup truck...

    Turkeys President Tayyip Erdogan said nuclear power should either be free for all states or banned completely. He warned that the inequality between states who have nuclear power and who do not undermines global balances. This comes amid global concern following news that Iran has exceeded limits to its uranium stockpile and was enriching the chemical to beyond limitations imposed by the Iran nuclear deal. Earlier this month, Tehran announced it would use advanced centrifuges prohibited under the deal. President Erdogan said: The position of nuclear power should either be forbidden for all or permissible for everyone.

    Russia may be an adversary, but it is not our number one enemy. Neither is China, which may have over a billion people but were its best customer and theyve invested too much in this nation to risk our destruction. Iranian leaders, on the other hand, have made no secret that they hate America and everything we stand for. The leading mullahs are true believers in a caliphate that will conquer the world. The 21st century has seen a broad mainstream embrace of a collective Muslim identity by young Muslims and the appeal of a caliphate as an idealized future...
