US Led Coalition & KurdIShIS Proxies Attacking Syrian Army, Impeding Terrorism Fight

Breaking news!
Exactly who the terrorists are can no longer be hidden by the always obfuscating main stream  media and their lying alternative media partners.
I've added additional info regarding tactics employed by the PKK/YPG/SDF against the Syrian's in there quest to retake their territory- scroll down

via Sputnik
"The Syrian Army, fighting terrorists in the Deir ez-Zor province, has been subjected to strong counterattacks from the north where Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and US special task units are operating, the Russian Defense Ministry's spokesman Mj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said on Tuesday.
"Over the past day, the assault groups of the Syrian government troops, with the support of the Russian Aerospace Forces, crossed the Euphrates, and continued to expand the seized bridgehead east of Deir ez-Zor, despite the stiff resistance of Daesh militants," Konashenkov told reporters.
Attacked by Daesh militants coming from the sanctuary, safety and security of the US and their proxy Kurds. Oh, my, imagine my shock!
"According to Syrian commanders' reports from the front line, the Syrian Army encounters the most severe counterattacks and fire from the northern direction. That is, where SDF forces and US special operations units are located, who are allegedly administering medical aid to these militants instead of liberating Raqqa. You don't have to possess profound military knowledge to see consistency in all these 'coincidences'," the spokesman said.
 That is so hilarious! You definitely don't have to possess profound military knowledge to see the freakin' obvious! Oh, yeah, I am not a coincidence theorist, never have been, never will be. 
Have I mentioned that before ;)
 "As the end of Daesh in Syria comes ever closer, the more obvious it becomes who is really fighting Daesh and who has been imitating the fight for three years. If the US-led international coalition does not want to combat terrorism in Syria, then it should at least not impede those who are doing it continuously and efficiently."

"the more obvious it becomes who is really fighting Daesh and who has been imitating the fight for three years"

Additional info begins here: Via SANA

Mj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov
“The closer the end of the ISIS in Syria, the clearer it is who is really fighting with the ISIS and who has been imitating this fight for three years. So, if the US-led international coalition does not want to fight against terrorism in Syria, let it just be out of the way of those who are doing it continuously and effectively.”

Repeating from that extended quotation- part of which is in the earlier info above:

 So, if the US-led international coalition does not want to fight against terrorism in Syria, let it just be out of the way of those who are doing it continuously and effectively.”

The Kurds employed water as a weapon against the SAA:
He noted that water discharges from the Euphrates dams by the armed groups supported by the US hamper the advance of Syrian Arab Army units in their operations against terrorism in the surroundings of Deir Ezzor province.
Thus, the water situation on the Euphrates has deteriorated dramatically in the past 24 hours. As soon as the Syrian government troops began to cross the river, water level in the Euphrates rose within hours and the current velocity nearly doubled to two meters per second,” he said.
“Since there have been no rains, the only source of such changes in the water situation is man-induced water discharge at dams upstream the Euphrates. These facilities are held by armed groups controlled by the US-led coalition,” he stressed.
 I've written several posts about the situation with the dams...
 

 

Yet, again!. Sweet, sweet vindication. Not that I needed the Russian General to validate that which has been obvious to me, though obfuscated by others, for some time now.

Recently: Head of YPG/PKK /SDF “Damascus Declared War on Us” 

 So, call the terrorists ISIS?. Or rebrand them SDF? Makes no difference-
Both ISIS and YPG/PKK/SDF (pick your brand/rebrand) have always had the same agenda.
Stealing territory and setting up their own administration(s). Call it a ‘caliphate?’ Rebrand it “Rojova” for Syria? Rebrand that to Greater Kurdistan if the ISIS/Kurds can join the annexed territory of Iraq and Syria?
Six of one/half a dozen of the other (two ways of describing the same dam thing!)

Kurds...................................ISIS

  Flashback to 2014- When I first wrote about the symbiosis between the Kurds and ISIS

From earlier today:

*Also Scott @ Willy Loman blog has written a must read all encompassing piece regarding the situation in Syria and beyond -  Scott has been the only other blogger, beside myself, writing about the regional remake including the push for an Israel 2.0. aka Kurdistan. I was completely unaware of his work until a commenter tipped me off- and thank goodness for that! It was getting lonely- being derided and marginalized- Then I had Scott to get derided and be marginalized with- hehehehe..

As Syrians Recapture “Rojava” from Our Newest “Freedom Fighters”, the Covetous Deep State Jockeys for War by Any Means Necessary

Canadians Trust in Science News is “dangerously low”

Canadian trust in any news is likely dangerously low. Canadians need to realize the lie pushing by the media originates, regarding science news, in the politicized scientific community itself ! 
That's the real problem.

Thankfully most people aren’t believing the lies and agenda pushed via the always perception managing media- I am surprised and very relieved by this report and have had some faith in the Canadian populace restored.


Link
Eight of ten Canadians are concerned “fake news” is damaging the public perception of science while nearly one in three Canadians  don’t understand or trust science reported in the news, according to a new survey.

Furthermore, four out of ten Canadians believe that science is a matter of opinion, while three in four believe scientific findings can be used to support any position, according to the Ontario Science Centre’s second annual Canadian science literacy survey.


Nearly half of Canadians believe the science behind global warming is unclear.

Unclear? Most of it is  down right created! Computer models..
Computer models gone awry last covered in the post -  Warm Antarctic Caves Harbour Secret Life & 91 NEW Volcanoes Beneath Antarctica’s Ice
"Canadians are also concerned that news media may lack the credibility to communicate scientific issues, said Dr. Maurice Bitran, CEO and Chief Science Officer, Ontario Science Centre.
Breakdown in trust

The media lacks credibility to communicate much of anything that doesn’t push an agenda - endless unquestioning unending war is just one credibility issue the media suffers from. One of many.

The survey shows nearly seven in ten Canadians believe that science is reported selectively to support news media objectives and six in ten Canadians believe that science coverage is presented to support political positions"

Six and Seven out of Ten Canadians- Hallelujiah!
“This breakdown in trust has serious consequences for Canada because our future health, prosperity and security all depend on making important, sometimes difficult, decisions based on scientific findings,” Bitran said in a statement.

“If we don’t trust the sources, or don’t understand the information we are receiving, we can’t make informed decisions.”
If the sources are skewed- we can’t trust the information. If the sources are skewed we can’t make informed decisions.
"While eight out of ten Canadians want to know more about science and how it affects our world, about one-third consider themselves science illiterate, according to the online survey conducted by Leger between August 15th to 16th, 2017, and released during Science Literacy Week"
I don’t consider myself a science illiterate. I can read and reason better then most.
“The findings of this 2017 survey demonstrate a vital role for authentic scientific voices in public education on critical issues that affect public policy and human health and wellbeing,” Bitran said.
An authentic voice? So, we need an appealing spokesperson? Like Ronald McDonald?
Gee, I thought we already had  that clown David Suzuki for that!
This is pure appeal to a perceived authority figure. 
We need authentic, real, observable, quantifiable, repeatable science.

Peer Review = Conspiracy

Another recent example of media lying to push an agenda

Another AGW Lie Bites the Dust: "Climate Change Fuelled Syrian War"

The media pushed that lie full throttle! Main stream and so called alternatives...

“There is no sound evidence that global climate change was a factor in sparking the Syrian civil war,” said University of Sussex Professor Jan Selby, one of the study’s co-authors, in a statement.

“It is extraordinary that this claim has been so widely accepted when the scientific evidence is so thin.”
How can the always perception  managing media be trusted when it  promotes the lies pushed by the politicized scientific community?

If Our Planet Was A Mere Fraction Further From the Sun It Would be Never Ending Ice Age

Yet, according to the carbon cult flunkies the sun is not a factor, major or otherwise, in our climate. That is ABSURD!

 More on the infantile mindset of this crowd after the main news.....  

Take note of the size of our earth relative to the Sun- Fortunately we are at just the right distance :)
Wired changed their spin headline to one that related a bit more to actual content- 
check the url for yourself ! We're lucky Earth isn't caught in a permanent Ice Age

Why are we lucky? Because we are at the ideal distance from the Sun! 
Too far from the sun- Too cold
Too close to the sun- seems sensible it would be too hot
" If we were just a fraction further from the Sun, life on Earth would be very different... or probably non-existent"
 The Earth might be more special than we previously thought. ( I already know the Earth is very special) A new scientific study has found that if we were just a fraction further from the Sun, our planet would be locked in a never ending Ice Age.

The findings, published in the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters, will help us understand what criteria to look for in Earth-like exoplanets.

For years, scientists have discovered a huge amount of evidence that shows the Earth is the perfect place for life.

“It has a magnetic field that protects us from the solar wind,” says Martin Turbet, from Sorbonne Universitésin Paris. “It has an ozone layer that shields us from UV light, it has the right amount of water on the surface for both lands and oceans to exist.”
 
Controversial billboard? Not according to this report. Not according to what is obvious and in your face.

Turbet and his colleagues have found another factor to Earth’s list of exceptional qualities.

“We show in fact that the Earth is just at the right distance from the Sun to be able to escape from episodes of complete glaciation, that - we know - must have occurred 2.4Gy and 700My ago,” he explains. "Move the Earth away from the Sun by only 15 per cent, the team found, and it would be permanently frozen."
In fact....


Just the facts

vs Wild Speculation:
We had some clues that CO2 condensation could occur on cold planets, and that it could affect the ability of Earth-like planets to escape from episodes of complete glaciation,” Turbet says, “but no-one has ever been able to quantify it.”
Wild speculation aside- If our perfect home was just a little further from the sun it wouldn't have that 'location, location, location' appeal that makes it such a desirable residence! 

 Getting to that infantile mindset...

Recently Canada's Thought Police decided different opinions were sacrilegious.

 Via the "Competition Bureau"(now that's Orwellian) a group/bandwagon of phony greens,  employing appeal to their authority, simply “demanded” they be shown as fools. And they were. To bad most Canadian's didn't realize they were shown to be fools! Their outing occurred when the competition bureau dropped the phony green instigated PR stunt investigation. 

Truly, doing that motley crew a favour. Sparing them the outing they so richly deserve though just the dropping of the investigation makes clear this demand was going nowhere.
        "After careful consideration of the facts in this case," she said in an email, "and to ensure the effective allocation of limited resources, the commissioner of competition decided to discontinue this inquiry."
     
The dropping of the "investigation" was done very quietly.
These included billboards from the Friends of Science Society featuring statements such as “Global Warming? Not for 18+ years!”(just a fact) and “The sun is the main driver of climate change.(just a fact) Not you. Not CO2.”
   
The Sun.. If we were just a little further from it, we'd have a never ending ice age.

Disinfodesmogblog was more then happy to promote this PR stunt to his carbon cult- What else could one expect from a public relations outfit connected to Al Gore's carbon trading scam?

 One can draw a straight line ...From Al Gore's Investment Management to Desmog Blog

If we want to talk about vested interests.. 

Yup, Canada, under ice..

Head of YPG/PKK /SDF “Damascus Declared War on Us”


This news was published about 12 hours ago according to the site. (It’s 2:30 pm est)
Head of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units Siban Hamo condemned the Syrian regime or Russian shelling of a Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) position east of the Euphrates River, questioning how they can target forces that have been combating the ISIS terrorist group.

He told Asharq Al-Awsat that the shelling is a
“declaration of war.”

Siban Hamo condemns either or both the Syrian regime/Russian Shelling of SDF east of the Euphrates by claiming this is a “declaration of war”

Pretty certain that the news from two days ago had the Kurdish terrorists declaring war on Syria. Let’s go back to my previous post and reread the threats made by PKK/YPG on the 15th of September..

“Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) has the right to fight in any area under Daesh (IS) control in Syria and liberate it,” he said.

“We do not allow the regime or its militias to cross to the eastern riverbank.”


 So, two days ago the YPG/PKK/SDF (pick your brand) were threatening the Syrian army as they move to retake Syrian territory. Sure sounds to be a declaration of war. Today the YPG/PKK/SDF (pick your brand) are claiming Syria taking it’s territory back is a “declaration of war” against the YPG/PKK/SDF (pick your brand?)

“Russia says that it wants to combat terrorism, so why is it fighting an effective side that is working against the terrorists?” he wondered.

Therein lies the “BIG LIE” the one that’s been spread by so many— the Kurds fighting ISIS - working against terrorism- BIG, BIG LIE

Russia and Syria have have been fighting destabilizing/annexing terrorists all along.
And they've been the most effective, best fighting force against terrorism!
"The report published Wednesday by the London-based IHS Jane Terrorism and Insurgency Centre, one of the world's leading security analysis agencies, says 43 percent of ISIS's battles between April 1, 2016 and March 31, 2017 were fought against the Syrian military and its allies, which include Russia, Iran and pro-government militias. Meanwhile, the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a majority-Kurd coalition of Arabs and ethnic minorities, accounted for 17 percent of the action against ISIS.

So, call the terrorists ISIS?. Or rebrand them SDF? Makes no difference-
Both ISIS and YPG/PKK/SDF (pick your brand/rebrand) have always had the same agenda.
Stealing territory and setting up their own administration(s). Call it a ‘caliphate?’ Rebrand it “Rojova” for Syria? Rebrand that to Greater Kurdistan if the ISIS/Kurds can join the annexed territory of Iraq and Syria?

Six of one/half a dozen of the other (two ways of describing the same dam thing!)

How many ways can one explain that KurdIShIS has been one and the same with the same agenda all along????  Why more people have not grasped this most obvious fact is incomprehensible?!
 "It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled"
Link

BTW: Russia has denied bombing the US proxies- Saying they only hit areas under ISIS control
Konashenkov said Russian planes had only carried out carefully targeted strikes in the area based upon information that had been confirmed from multiple sources.

The strikes had only hit targets in areas under the control of Daesh, he said.
READ the direct quote from Konashenkov:

 “To avoid unnecessary escalation, the commanders of Russian forces in Syria used an existing communications channel to inform our American partners in good time about the borders of our military operation in Deir Ezzor,” Konashenkov said.

“In the last few days, Russian surveillance and reconnaissance did not detect a single clash between Daesh and armed representatives of any ‘third force’ on the eastern bank of the Euphrates,” he added.
Russian surveillance and reconnaissance did not detect a single clash between Daesh (ISIS) and armed representatives of any "third force" on the eastern banks of the Euphrates

UPDATED: Did Russian Airstrikes Intentionally Target US backed Kurdish Fighters?

 It's not so clear! A pretext to justify an American attack on the Syrians is equally possible.

 Corrected the headline for several reasons-  1st: only injuries are being claimed.
2nd- the US is saying Russia intentionally hit the Kurdish militias

UPDATE 5:26 EST : The new headline now reflects the claims of intentional targeting now being made by the US- coming straight from the DoD

SOUTHWEST ASIA, Sept. 16, 2017 — At approximately 12:30 a.m. Greenwich Mean Time today, (3:30 AM Syrian Time- 8:30 pm EST) Russian forces struck a target east of the Euphrates River in Syria near Dayr Az Zawr, causing injuries to coalition partner forces, Combined Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve officials announced. 

Russian munitions impacted a location known to the Russians to contain Syrian Democratic Forces and coalition advisors, the officials said. Several SDF fighters were wounded and received medical care as a result of the strike.
Multinational coalition troops advising and assisting the SDF were present but were not wounded as a result of the Russian strike.

How did the advising and assisting coalition troops get so dam lucky?!! Unscathed from an airstrike?

Russia and the US maintain open deconfliction communications....
sputnik

The Russian Armed Forces have not provided any comments yet.
However, Moscow has repeatedly claimed that decisions about the airstrikes in Syria are made only after thorough verification of the intelligence data
Commentary: I'm still questioning:
 1- if their were any airstrucks at all?
 2- who exactly carried out the airstrikes? 
3- How did the Coalition advisers who were assisting the YPG/PKK escape the strikes unharmed?
4- Knowing the US is looking for a pretext- will this now be a convenient excuse for "retaliation" against SAA- Who appear to have had nothing to do with this what so ever?

From earlier:

First issue: The Kurdish militias are making the claims- They can claim anything they want. Doesn't make it true. Reuters- and you should pay particular attention to the extremely manipulative language in that article! 
" U.S.-backed militias said they came under attack on Saturday from Russian jets and Syrian government forces in Deir al-Zor province"
Second: SOHR is verifying airstrikes against the Kurdish militia but is not verifying which party struck the US backed PKK/YPG militia. Via Associated Press:
 The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights confirmed the airstrike, but said it was not clear if it was carried out by Russian or Syrian warplanes.
 If SOHR can't identify Russians vs Syrian.  Who can they identify? If anyone?

Let's consider the threats emanating from the US backed Kurds yesterday?

Kurdistan 24
DEIR AL-ZOR, Syria (Kurdistan 24) – The Kurdish-led, US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) on Friday said they reached Deir al-Zor on Euphrates near the border with Iraq, gaining ground in an offensive to retake the city from Islamic State (IS).
The SDF said in an online statement that their forces reached Deir al-Zor city after 48 hours of announcing the offensive named Al-Jazira Storm.
An SDF spokesperson Mustefa Bali told Kurdistan 24 their fighting would extend to any area under IS in Syria.
“Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) has the right to fight in any area under Daesh (IS) control in Syria and liberate it,”  (which just means steal the territory) he said.
From the south of Deir al-Zor, the Syrian regime forces and their allies are advancing toward the city as well.
The distance between SDF and the Syrian regime forces is about 15 kilometres.
The SDF command confirmed they would respond if the Syrian regime forces cross the Euphrates to their areas.
“The Syrian regime forces already bombarded our positions around Tabqa, and if the regime forces attack us here, we have the right to respond and we will do,” Talal Silo, an SDF top commander and spokesperson told Kurdistan 24.
Did the Syrian's attack SDF aka YPG/PKK? Did the Russians attack? Is the claim of bombings airstrikes a pretext, which the US can use to justify, launch airstrikes, against the Syrian National Army?

“We always state that our project is eliminating terrorism,” he said.
According to the Deir al-Zor Military Council, part of the SDF, the operation in Deir al-Zor province aims at capturing areas in its northern and eastern countryside and advancing towards the Euphrates. (land grabbing expansionism- just like their Israeli pals)
Al-Jazira region, located in northeast Syria, lies between the Euphrates and Tigris rivers and contains the provinces of Hasaka, Raqqa and Deir al-Zor.
The term Jazira is also used by the Kurdish administration in Syria’s northern pre-dominantly Kurdish areas (known as Rojava) to refer to the provinces of Qamishli and Hasaka after the Syrian government withdrew from the region in July 2012.
Reuters
BEIRUT (Reuters) - U.S.-backed Syrian militias will not let government forces cross the Euphrates River in their bid to recover eastern Syria, their commander said on Friday, but Russia said army units had already done so near the city of Deir al-Zor.
Syrian government forces supported by Russian air strikes and Iran-backed militias, and a U.S.-backed alliance of Kurdish and Arab fighters, are converging on Islamic State in separate offensives around Deir al-Zor.
The government side has advanced into the city from the west. Last week, they broke an Islamic State siege of the provincial capital, which sits on the western bank of the river.
The Deir al-Zor military council, fighting as part of the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), has meanwhile advanced toward Deir al-Zor from the eastern side of the river since launching an offensive into the province a week ago.
Military council commander Ahmed Abu Khawla warned government forces and their militia allies against firing across the river as his fighters close in -- something he said had happened in recent days.
“Now we have 3 km between us and the eastern riverbank, once our forces reach the area, any shot fired into that area we will consider an attack on the military council,” he said.
“We have notified the regime and Russia that we are coming to the Euphrates riverbank, and they can see our forces advancing,” he said. “We do not allow the regime or its militias to cross to the eastern riverbank.”
But Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said the Syrian army had already crossed. 
I had read that indeed SAA had crossed the Euphrates..

ABNA

 The Syrian forces, backed by an array of allies, keep fast advancing in Deir ez-Zor fronts against ISIS terrorist group, raising hackles of the Americans who decided to deploy the Washington-backed militias to the strategic city in a bid to not fall behind the other actors in competition in eastern Syria.
The Deir ez-Zor city is located in Syria’s east and is considered a gate to the neighboring Iraq. Major part of the city, except for some small neighborhoods, fell to the terrorists in the initial stages of the Syrian conflict and remained as such to date.
During the past five years, al-Nusra Front, an affiliate of al-Qaeda in Syria, and then ISIS went to great lengths to fully seize control what remained of Deir ez-Zor but tough resistance to the various offensives by the encircled government forces frustrated the terrorist groups’ efforts.

If the terrorists’ push to control the remaining districts of Deir ez-Zor was successful, the whole eastern Syria could have been considered a fallen part of the country, meaning it was almost impossible for the government forces to return and launch a recapturing campaign in the area, according to the analysts.

Fall of the eastern Syria to the terrorists was the US long-standing dream and Americans spared no efforts to realize it, and even occasionally operated as ISIS terrorist group’s air power covering the terrorists’ attacks by air raids to wrest the remaining parts from the army forces. During the past two years, the American fighter jets bombed the Syrian state forces at least twice in Deir ez-Zor, for example, opening the way for immediate anti-army attacks by ISIS terrorists. However, the US failed to materialize goals on the ground as the stiff resistance by the protective forces, especially Lebanon’s Hezbollah, continued to deal blows to the advancing militants. The US claimed that its warplanes meant to target the ISIS forces in the area and mistakenly hit the Syrian army units.

According to the Syrian media familiar with the Deir ez-Zor developments, Hezbollah in June 2016 sent first batch of its elite units to the provincial capital of Deir ez-Zor through a heliborne operation. The deployment came after the Lebanese group showed effective role in the then-ongoing Aleppo recapture operation and at the same time, ISIS considerably stepped up attacks on the government forces trapped in Deir ez-Zor.

Apparently nobody believed the US account that the American jets mistakenly attacked positions of the Syrian army in Deir ez-Zor as the Washington plans and strategy in east of the war-ravaged country were clear to all. The Americans struggled to contribute to full seizure of eastern Syrian regions in a bid to create a wide gap with Iraq on its western border with Syria. This agenda served a bigger goal that wanted to prevent ground connection across the Axis of Resistance’s territories starting from eastern Iran and ending in the western Syria and southern coasts of the Mediterranean Sea.

Analysts argue that the US attempts to foil any route contacts between the Resistance camp’s countries that also include Iraq and Lebanon come to serve the Israeli security. The US concerns even doubled as in late June the Secretary-General of Hezbollah Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah warned that the future war waged by the Israeli regime against Syria or Lebanon could draw thousands of fighters taking Hezbollah side from the allied countries.

Now that Resistance camp’s forces are in Deir ez-Zor and the three-year siege on the government forces is broken, not only the city sees end of daily plight but also the US meets its plans’ heavy failure there. Despite that, it appears that Washington has yet to forsake its dreams as it seeks share in the post-ISIS Deir ez-Zor.

A week after Deir ez-Zor blockade was broken, the American-backed militias, a coalition of Kurdish and Arab fighters dubbed Syrian Democratic Forces, announced launching operation to liberate Deir ez-Zor. The US has repeatedly tried to deploy these forces to the city, but ethnic challenges between the Kurds and Arabs as well as the priority of Raqqa operation, the de facto capital of the self-proclaimed ISIS caliphate, stripped Washington of effective militant force to attack Deir ez-Zor. Now the situation urges the US to send the allied militants, who also have backing of the American troops, to spoil Syrian army forces’ gains in the strategic city.

Nevertheless, analysts suggest that the US-backed fighters are not that ready for combat, unlike the Resistance camp that has cultivated strong resolution to link Syrian borders to Iraq’s, making it unlikely for Washington to see its objectives in Syria’s east realized.
Iraq is pushing towards it's border with Syria as I write this post:
The Iraqi military has launched an offensive to retake a key town on the border with Syria from Islamic State (IS) fighters.
A spokesman for Iraq's Joint Operations Command said on September 16 that forces were moving on the town of Akashat as part of the government's effort to regain control of its border.
SAA and allies are also headed towards the Iraqi border. Southfront
On Saturday, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Hezbollah launched a large-scale anti-ISIS operation to reach al-Bukamal city at the Syrian-Iraqi border.

And USrael may just need a pretext to block this progress...
The placement of Russian, Iranian and Turkish troops in Syria cannot please the Usrael team- And is very dangerous when thinking in terms of a WW3 scenario

 

Was Passage Of ISIS Convoy Granted After American Citizen Fighting for ISIS Surrendered US Allies?

Thinking about the timeline:

Defense.gov
 The Defense Department is legally detaining as a known enemy combatant an American citizen who turned himself over to the Syrian Democratic Forces this week, Pentagon spokesman Army Col. Rob Manning said here today.
He wasn’t captured, as is claimed in many headlines. He simply turned himself over to the Kurdish Forces in eastern Syria.
 
ABC news
The individual, who surrendered to Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) on or around September 12th, has since been turned over to U.S. forces, said Eric Pahon, Department of Defense spokesperson.

This individual, has not been named in any article that I have read, turns himself in to the Kurdish militias around the 12th of September and on or about the 14th of September it is reported the ISIS convoy has reached it’s destination.



 WSJ

Updated Sept. 14, 2017 10:19 a.m. ET
BEIRUT—Islamic State militants stranded in the Syrian desert for two weeks have reached their destination in eastern Syria, opposition activists said...

The US could have bombed that bus full of ISIS terrorists. But, they didn’t. They blocked it’s passage, kept it under surveillance, but didn’t destroy it.  This unnamed American turns himself in to the SDF/PKK/YPG on or around September 12, the bus is allowed to leave by the US, reaching it’s destination on or around the 14th of September. Is there a connection?

The Big Project: Humpty Dumpty, Israel and the "cool people"

I managed to listen to this entirely. You can too, or not, depending on how much guileful talk you can take..

hattip Rescue:
Here is a link for the full presentation, it is at the Washington Institute for Near Eastern Policy: https://www.youtube.com/embed/CL3j9HFmal8

For this post my focus is on what was stated around the 69 minute mark:
 Link

Major General Yair Golan ; he likes the idea of an independent Kurdistan because he likes the "cool people" He claims that an independent Kurdistan is good for the "region"- Which of course means it's good for Israel. He says Israel and the Kurds aka the"cool people" have a good relationship. And he states the PKK is not a terror group- You can hear all this for yourself. It's nothing new for anyone who has read here for the past several years. I had to laugh when he said the Kurds are "moderate" in nature... yah, tell that to all those who have been murdered, displaced, beaten had their property stolen.. by those "cool people"

That video is embedded below:



Douglas Feith- remember him and think of 9/11. Who really benefited from 9/11?
 'Stop worrying so much about putting 'humpty dumpty' Syria back together again'

Of course one should ask if poor Humpty had some 'help' when he fell off that wall?

We know with certainty Syria's 'fall' had helping hands aplenty!

 "However, he did say that he thought that those who were stuck with the idea of maintaining Syria’s borders as they were set by colonial European powers after World War I were making a mistake.

“Rather than being locked into a decision that happened to be reflecting key ideas that [British prime minister] Lloyd George had in mind in 1920, we should be thinking more broadly,” he said.

The ex-Pentagon official( Douglas Feith) asked rhetorically: “What is the situation? What changes are in order…would make the region happier, freer, more prosperous, more peaceful going forward?" He suggested leaders ''break out'' of the idea that the borders should remain exactly as they were before the war.

“Whether Syria can hang together as a state is a serious question. People should not be focused on…that humpty dumpty has to be put back together again,” he said.
Of course he wouldn't speak in such a manner if Israel was the humpty dumpty would he?

The "big project" relates directly to the investigation covered in my extensive post of a few days ago- I really thought the 2.2 billion dollar plus arms pipeline would have seen broader coverage especially in the so called alternative media- But no- I haven't seen too much about it, in either of the 5 eyes media (alt or mainstream)

The BIG Project requires lots of arms...
 "Weapons continue to pour into Syria to fight ISIS, and fears are growing about what will happen to the arms and fighters when the jihadists are defeated.

Wilcken said that he feared for the future of the Middle East.

“Given the very complex, fluid situation in Syria … and the existence of many armed groups accused of serious abuses,” he said. “It is difficult to see how the US could ensure arms sent to the region would not be misused.”
 
Repeating:
“Given the very complex, fluid situation in Syria … and the existence of many armed groups accused of serious abuses,” he said. “It is difficult to see how the US could ensure arms sent to the region would not be misused.”
Assuming the US wants to keep track of these weapons and ensure they would not be misused?
I would say that's a very foolish assumption!

http://www.yenisafak.com/en/columns/ibrahimkaragul/what-happened-who-silenced-us-the-big-project-is-turkey-d-2040101

Big projects take time. We've been witnessing nearly 2 decades of discord in this region, with added momentum to destabilize and redraw borders, under cover of the 'arab spring'
 How many years have I written about this remake? Which does include Turkey.

 The Big Project is Turkey
This situation is not limited to the change of political maps alone. The ethnic map is being changed, an intervention is being applied in this direction; the centuries-old identity of cities is being changed. Because this map also covers areas where there is no presence of the Kurdish ethnic identity and is being shaped entirely in accordance with the U.S. and Israel’s security interests, their future calculations and plans to control the region.
That area, that zone is being torn away from our region.
We are in the eve of the most radical change after Sykes-Picot. Yes, the Sykes-Picot era is over. Yes, a lot is going to change. However, with this project, with these changes, the region is being entirely torn away from its dynamics, Mesopotamia and Turkey’s south are being turned into a European internal affair.
 The operation in the north of Syria and Iraq is going to be the primary example of the “new geography” which borders are being drawn entirely by Atlantic countries; after this step, history will progress differently. The region’s disintegration, its division, its partitioning into garrison states, the elimination of all structures resisting this, the downsizing of strong states will gain pace following the formation of this map.
Don’t forget, the big project is Turkey
Were the investigations increasing their pressure in the U.S. to pressurize Turkey while all this was happening in our south? The Dec. 17 and Dec. 25, 2013 files and the July 15, 2016 bloody attacks were to stop Turkey from rising once again, to break its regional influence, confine it to Anatolia and downsize it there – we know this now. The operation continues full speed ahead. At this stage, we are watching the stages of this major intervention in the north of Syria and Iraq. But just like Dec. 17, just like July 15, this operation is also being carried out with internal partners. Those who failed to stop Turkey through the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETÖ) are testing another scenario internally and from the south.
Don’t forget, the biggest project is to bring the most powerful country that got back up on its feet a century later to its knees. Hence, all the maps drawn today are targeting the map of Turkey.
 As the region is remade in plain sight.... Stating anything else is just obfuscation to give cover/hide the ongoing project.

A New Strategy for Iraq and Syria ???? 
It’s time to rethink Iraq and Syria. It begins by admitting that the old borders are gone, that a unified Syria or Iraq will never be reconstituted, that the Sykes-Picot map is defunct.
Fully occupied & annexed Northern Syria (US special forces & PKK/YPG, aka the cool guys, militia)  sure looks to be  the force behind NATO's new southern flank- The one I wrote about nearly three full years ago..

Troops from Russia, Iran and Turkey to Monitor Syrian Demilitarized Zone

Bb

 Russia, Turkey and Iran agreed to establish and monitor a combat-free zone in and around the northwestern Syrian province of Idlib after two days of talks on ending the country’s six-year war.

Turkey’s foreign ministry said the deal was struck in Astana, Kazakhstan, where officials have held several rounds of a Russia-backed peace initiative. The three guarantor nations agreed to deploy and coordinate forces along the boundaries of the so-called de-escalation zone to monitor for violations by opposition groups or forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Idlib province, on the border with Turkey, is largely under the control of Islamist groups.

Almost two years after Russia’s military intervention tipped the war in Assad’s favor, President Vladimir Putin is faced with the dilemma of pressing the Syrian leader into accepting a symbolic power-sharing deal to end the conflict and legitimize Russia’s military presence. Assad now controls half of the country, meaning that after the war, he’ll have to share authority with other players, including autonomy-seeking Kurds and Iran, whose military also shored him up.

Breaking: Syrian Army seizes oilfields

 Energy Voice
The Syrian Army has taken control of oilfields and a gas refinery near Deir ez Zor, according to a state news outlet Russia Today.
The city, the largest in eastern Syria, has been caught up in the civil war engulfing the country.
It comes as President Bashar Al-Assad’s forces march on the banks of Euphrates River.
The oil rich province has been locked into a race between the incumbent Syrian government forces and the US backed rebel group the Syrian Democratic Forces.
The area was formerly under the control of ISIS.

Russia says close to Syria deal with Turkey, Iran

Russia, Turkey and Iran are close to finalising an agreement on creating four de-escalation zones in Syria, a senior Russian negotiator said on Thursday.

The three sides are discussing details of the agreement at meetings in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan, Alexander Lavrentyev, who leads the Russian delegation, told reporters.

“Our main task at this international meeting on Syria is to finalise and establish four de-escalation zones,” Lavrentyev said. “We are very close to reaching an agreement on creating these four zones.”

The meetings, which also involve representatives of the Damascus government and some rebel factions, will continue on Friday.

Lavrentyev said the agreement was likely to include provisions on the deployment of monitors - such as military police servicemen - in the four zones and, more specifically, on their borders.

The Pentagon’s 2.2 Billion Arms Pipeline Flooding Syria- German & Czech concerns?

The Pentagon’s 2.2 Billion Arms Pipeline Flooding Syria- German & Czech concerns?

This is a very interesting expose! 

 I’ve amalgamated two reports including additional links, but, encourage you to read the linked articles, entirely. Germany it appears was less then happy with the US routing of arms through US bases in Germany then onto other US bases in other countries, where the weapons were distributed. Including back to the US, New Jersey! Yes, New Jersey and Piccatiny Arsenal.
 Emphasis on appears because I question the German and Czech concerns, because often, but not always, appearances are deceiving. Who was unhappy in Germany? What persons? What parties? Is it more for local  media populace consumption vs global? Perhaps the domestic population is sick of being occupied by the arms smuggling Americans? What ever the case it seems some consternation has arisen regarding the arms smuggling.

An aside, related in a different way- The US has been hit by two hurricanes and they are crying the blues and begging for money all over the place- But, clearly, priorities are very very skewed since the US obviously has multiple billions of dollars, accessible and ready to spend,  to destroy other nations.

Balkaninsight: German Concerns Spark Pentagon Reroute

Balkaninsight:  Pentagon 2.2 Billion Arms Pipeline Floods Syria
" The defeat of Islamic State (drawing new colonial borders) in Syria is reliant on a questionable supply-line, funnelling unprecedented quantities of weapons and ammunition from Eastern Europe to some 30,000 anti-ISIS rebel fighters"
You will come to understand that the vast majority of these weapons have fallen into PKK/YPG hands.
"Armed with AK-47s and rocket-propelled grenades fresh from state-owned production lines and stockpiles of the Balkans, Central Europe and increasingly the former Soviet Union, these US-backed troops are spearheading the battle to reclaim Raqqa, the capital of the so-called caliphate, and liberate other areas of Syria held by ISIS.
The Pentagon’s US Special Operations Command Mission, SOCOM, ordered its contractors to stop trucking Soviet-style weapons from the Balkans through Germany after officials in Berlin became concerned about the deliveries" (I’m not 100 percent convinced that the US really stopped shipments via Germany)
Flashback: September 4/2017: Evidence Makes a Liar of Mattis- Washington Supplied an Army in Northern Syria
 "Ankara revealed that the Washington has provided 1,285 truckloads of weapons and ammunition to the PKK's Syrian armed wing, the People's Protection Units (YPG) while they are claiming that only 60 trucks of arms support was sent to the YPG.
Binge buying for US Dirty Wars
"Amid a flurry of negative headlines, the Pentagon needed a new plan: Starting in September 2015, and largely unnoticed by the media, it quietly shifted focus to arming Syrian rebels already on the ground with the Eastern Bloc arms and ammunition they were already using, according to a previously unreported Pentagon document from February 2016.

Reporters have pinpointed more than $700 million of spending on weapons and ammunition likely destined for Syrian rebels since September 2015, when the Pentagon’s anti-ISIS train and equip programme shifted strategy.

The Department of Defense has budgeted $584 million specifically for this Syrian operation for the financial years 2017 and 2018, and has earmarked another $900 million of spending on Soviet-style munitions between now and 2022.

The total, $2.2 billion, likely understates the flow of weapons to Syrian rebels in the coming years"
Flashback- August 18/2017: US to Remain In Syrian “Kurdistan” For Decades After ISIS is “Defeated”
 “They have a strategy policy for decades to come. There will be military, economic and political agreements in the long term between the leadership of the northern areas (of Syria) and the US administration,” Selo said.
 Earmarked spending on smuggled weapons for Syrian rebels until 2022 with a long term plan of occupation.....
 "The first Pentagon delivery, which included 50 tonnes of ammunition, arrived in October 2015, just a month after the shift in policy. 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.

The shipment was far from a one-time event and the SDF was not the only group to receive support – a changing coalition of rebel fighters in Syria’s south east is also being armed by the Pentagon"

" It (the Pentagon) has bought up to $480 million worth of Soviet-style arms and ammunition for Syrian rebels since the switch in strategy, this investigation can reveal, from Afghanistan, Bulgaria, BIH, Croatia, Romania, the Czech Republic, Ukraine, Georgia, Poland and Serbia.
 The weapons and ammunition that the Pentagon is supplying to Syria are dispatched through a sprawling logistical network, including an army of arms dealers, shipping companies, cargo airlines, German military bases and Balkan airports and ports"
Logistical networks and shipping companies? Perhaps this company or another one just like it? Germany and Romania being mentioned as conduits for shipping arms..

Fast Delivery -The distance between Romania and Germany is only 1597 km – we can cover all this distance in just 20h. Just get in touch with us and see it for yourself.

"The purchases are routed through two channels. One is run by the US military’s Special Operations Command, SOCOM, and the other is operated by Picatinny Arsenal, a little-known New Jersey weapons depot."
Picattiny Arsensal- An apparently little known weapons depot, military base and research facility on 6,400 acres of land.

Leaked SOCOM email


Germany: A Logistical Hub
"Germany has long been a key logistical hub for the US army and is home to one of America’s most important air bases in Europe, Ramstein, as well as a nearby ammunition depot at Miesau, the largest of its kind outside the US.
But these bases’ role in the Syria supply-line has never been acknowledged by authorities in the US or Germany.
 The leaked SOCOM email, Pentagon flight cargo paperwork, UN arms export reports and data on transit licences through Germany support this claim.

Following an official request from reporters, Germany’s Economy Ministry revealed an upsurge in weapons transiting to or from US military bases through German territory and onto another country in 2016.

The ministry approved 11 land transit licences that year, significantly more than in any year in the previous decade, when the numbers ranged from one to six.

Three further approvals were made in the first five months of 2017, although authorities declined to provide additional information, including whether these were heading to or leaving from US


 Jan Paul van Aken, an MP for the left-wing Die Linke party and a member of the German parliament’s arms control committee, said that “once more it is through Ramstein [US air base in Germany] that the USA organises its dirty wars all around the world.
 UN arms export reports for 2015 and 2016 also recorded three weapons transfers from Serbia to an end user of a “US military base in Germany”, with the final importing country entered as “Germany”. This type of entry is unprecedented, bar two others in 2016 noting Serbian exports to a “US military base in Romania”.

A vast trove of emails and documents related to Azerbaijan’s state-owned Silk Way air cargo carrier, leaked online in June, also provide further evidence of SOCOM’s use of German bases in 2016 – and the need to reroute after Berlin’s concerns emerged.

These revealed that in January 2017, just weeks after the email warning of Germany’s sensitivities about the weapons transports, 20,000 grenades were dispatched to a SOCOM depot in Bagram airbase in Afghanistan, instead of the original destination - Miesau base in Germany – because of “last minute changes to program circumstances”.

Bagram was being used as a temporary store for SOCOM activities in Syria and Iraq at the time.
In March, the rerouting was confirmed in a Pentagon report which noted that an extra $23 million was needed for the Syria programme to cover additional transportation costs before the end of September 2017 because of “the inability to consolidate non-US source weapons and equipment in Europe.

The Pentagon refused to confirm or deny that its sudden inability to gather Eastern Bloc weapons in Europe was connected to the German concerns, adding that such decisions are made due to “diplomatic” and “logistical” reasons.

The revised route for armaments to Syria remains unclear, but details of recent SOCOM flights on Silk Way, according to the leaked documents, show planes carrying weapons from Azerbaijan to Rijeka in Croatia in May and June, and flights from Kazakhstan to Chicago and Frankfurt, suggesting a variety of new paths to the conflict zone"
A standard end user certificate and a "Misleading" SOCOM End user certificate!

Related: Czech Report
 The United States have re-sold old weapons from central and Eastern Europe to Syria, despite guaranteeing to be the end user, the Czech Centre for Investigative Journalism reported on Wednesday. Some of the weapons were reportedly purchased in the Czech Republic. According to the Czech journalists, who cooperated with the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project, such a procedure would be a breach of the arms trade agreement.
The US is very clearly an arms trading black marketeer of extraordinary scope. Undoubtedly marching hand in hand with their drug smuggling...

Last few paragraphs because this is getting very long:
 "Weapons continue to pour into Syria to fight ISIS, and fears are growing about what will happen to the arms and fighters when the jihadists are defeated.

Wilcken said that he feared for the future of the Middle East.

“Given the very complex, fluid situation in Syria … and the existence of many armed groups accused of serious abuses,” he said. “It is difficult to see how the US could ensure arms sent to the region would not be misused.”
Repeating:
“Given the very complex, fluid situation in Syria … and the existence of many armed groups accused of serious abuses,” he said. “It is difficult to see how the US could ensure arms sent to the region would not be misused.”
Assuming the US wants to keep track of these weapons and ensure they would not be misued?
I would say that's a very foolish assumption!

Music has Charms to Aggravate, Incite, Distress and Soothe the Savage Breast

The effect of music on your temporal balance. Or perhaps your temporal imbalance?
 I'm enjoying delving into the subject! A selection of information worth sharing.
Such as this ( reading through it)

Musick has Charms to sooth a savage Breast,
To soften Rocks, or bend a knotted Oak.
I've read, that things inanimate have mov'd,
And, as with living Souls, have been inform'd,
By Magick Numbers and persuasive Sound.
What then am I? Am I more senseless grown
Than Trees, or Flint? O force of constant Woe!
'Tis not in Harmony to calm my Griefs.......

Jan at Gnostic Media has started a new series of shows with Hans Utter

UnSpun 083 – Dr. Hans Utter: “Temporal (Im)balance, Memory and Music”

I’m hooked!
Seriously, hooked. If you missed the whole batch of shows on Music, Mind Control and Psychobiology...what can I say, except, you missed a lot!
This new batch of shows on Temporal (im)balance, memory and music is already shaping up to be as informative if not more so!

Part 1 is here


Part 2 is embedded below:




The Burrough’s quote Hans read (Part 2) really stuck in my mind
I went off to find it- William Burroughs the consummate insider, despite his street reputation.

"And what would the future look like if such groups actually exist and if they do combine and take over? An elitist World State very much along the lines laid down by the Nazis. At the top would be a theocracy trained in psychic control techniques implemented by computerized electronic devices that would render opposition psychologically impossible. Entry to this privileged class would be permitted only to those whose dedication to the world state was absolute and unquestioning. In short, you don’t get in by merit or ability but by being an all around one hundred percent shit.”

 The Adding Machine: Selected Essays. “Mind War” – William S. Burroughs (1985)

 I see very many people entrained by computerized electronic devices every single day.  Not a one of them realizes they have been rendered inert, immobile and totally subservient via the control techniques delivered by the devices they willingly use to the extreme, daily. Enjoying their servitude?


The jimmy and bill show-  Jimmy being Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin fame. Bill being none other then William Burroughs- As I ; read through the interview, what really struck me was how aware both of these people were regarding the affects, effects the music had on the audience.

Since reading Dave McGowan's book on Laurel Canyon (RIP) and falling down the rabbit hole of the cooperation/collusion between the musical/military industrial complex the interview resonated very differently with me then it would have many years ago
"The Led Zeppelin show depends heavily on volume, repetition and drums.
It bears some resemblance to the trance music found in Morocco, which is magical in origin and purpose--that is, concerned with the evocation and control of spiritual forces. In Morocco, musicians are also magicians. Gnaoua music is used to drive out evil spirits. The music of Joujouka evokes the God Pan, Pan God of Panic, representing the real magical forces that sweep away the spurious. It is to be remembered that the origin of all the arts--music, painting and writing--is magical and evocative; and that magic is always used to obtain some definite result. In the Led Zeppelin concert, the result aimed at would seem to be the creation of energy in the performers and in the audience. For such magic to succeed, it must tap the sources of magical energy, and this can be dangerous."
Selected excerpts:
William Burroughs : "I found Jimmy Page equally aware of the risks involved in handling the fissionable material of the mass unconcious"
I turned to Jimmy Page: "Of course we are dealing here with meditation--
the deliberate induction of a trance state in a few people under the hands
of an old master. This would seem on the surface to have a little in common with a rock concert, but the underlying force is the same: human energy and its potential concentration." I pointed out that the moment when the stairway to heaven becomes something actually POSSIBLE for the audience, would also be the moment of greatest danger. Jimmy expressed himself as well aware of the power in mass concentration, aware of the dangers involved, and of the skill and balance needed to avoid them...rather like driving a load of nitroglycerine.
"There IS a responsibility to the audience," he said. "We don't want
anything bad to happen to these kids--we don't want to release anything we can't handle." We talked about magic and Aleister Crowley. Jimmy said that Crowley has been maligned as a black magician, whereas magic is neither white nor black, good nor bad--it is simply alive with what it is: the real thing, what people really feel and want and are. I pointed out that this "either/or" straitjacket had been imposed by Christianity when all magic became black magic; that scientists took over from the Church, and Western man has been stifled in a non-magical universe known as "the way things are." Rock music can be seen as one attempt to break out of this dead soulless universe and reassert the universe of magic.
 How about releasing 'anything' the audience can't handle?

We talked about the special effects used in the concert. "Sure," he said,
"lights, lasers, dry ice are fine--but you have to keep some balance. The
show must carry itself and not rely too heavily on special effects, however spectacular," I brought up the subject of infra-sound, that is, sound pitched below 16 Hertz, the level of human hearing; as ultra-sound is above the level. Professer Gavreau of France developed infra-sound as a military weapon. A powerful infra-sound installation can, he claims, kill everyone in a five-mile radius, knock down walls and break windows. Infra-sound kills by setting up vibrations within the body so that, as Gavreau puts it, "You can feel all the organs in your body rubbing together." The plans for this device can be obtained from the French Patent Office, and infra-sound generators constructed from inexpensive materials. Needless to say, one is not concerned with military applications however unlimited, but with more interesting and useful possibilities, reaching much further that five miles.
Infra-sound sets up vibrations in the body and nervous system. Need these
vibrations necessarily be harmful or unpleasant? All music played at any
volume sets up vibrations in the body and nervous system of the listener.
That's why people listen to it. Caruso as you will remember could break a
champagne glass across the room. Especially interesting is the possibility
of rhythmic pulses of infra-sound; that is, MUSIC IN INFRA-SOUND. You can't hear it, but you can feel it.

 Read the rest at the link-  Music is much more then most people understand it to be. That much is clear. Music/sound and lighting ups the game. 
Finally... a commenter at Gnostic Media left a link to this video
