Turkey Will “Definitely” Join Ground Operation In Syria, Accuses Russia Of “War Crimes”

We have expressed our surprise at the forbearance of Russia’s leaders in the face of repeated provocative actions from the USA and Turkey. It seems however, Putin’s patience with the infantile Obama and the deranged Erdogan may not last much longer.Here are the latest headlines out of Russia where the defense ministry is at wit’s end with the Turks.

RUSSIAN DEFENCE MINISTRY SAYS ‘TERRORISTS’ IN SYRIA’S IDLIB AND ALEPPO PROVINCES CONTINUE TO RECEIVE WEAPONS AND REINFORCEMENTS FROM TURKISH TERRITORY

TURKEY IS LAUNCHING ‘MASSED’ ARTILLERY STRIKES ON SYRIAN GOVT FORCES AND ‘SYRIA’S PATRIOTIC OPPOSITION’ – RIA CITES RUSSIAN DEFENCE MINISTRY

Turkey shelled Syria for a fourth consecutive day on Tuesday as Ankara steps up its support for anti – Assad rebels in the face of attacks by the Kurdish YPG. “As many as 150 terrorists were killed during the 4-day-long shelling targeting PYD points,” the pro-government Yeni Safak wrote today, adding that “the PYD, backed by both the US and Russia, is working with President Bashar al-Assad to control areas along the Turkish border.”

The move by Russia and Iran to encircle Aleppo and cut rebel supply lines to Turkey has allowed the YPG to advance on towns near the border, effectively consolidating the group’s grip on northern Syria, where they’ve been highly successful at holding large swaths of territory.That constiutes a major setback for Ankara where President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is desperate to kill popular support for the pro-Kurdish HDP which, at least in the Turkish government’s view is merely the political arm of the PKK.

Erdogan doesn’t distinguish between the PKK (which both Turkey and the US officially designate as a terror group) and the YPG. The US, on the other hand, openly supports the Syrian Kurds and has backed their advances with airstrikes (they can hardly do otherwise having been the prime mover in the creation of an autonomous Kurdistan in Iraqi territory. Ankara fears that if the YPG are allowed to bridge the territory they control east of the Euphrates with territory they control west of the river, they will effectively establish a proto-state on the border which would embolden the PKK to try something similar in southeast Turkey where Turkish Kurds are already pushing for autonomy.

 There are good reasons to suspect that Turkey will not only persist in the shelling of Azaz from gun emplacements within its own territory, but will in fact invade Syria.

On Tuesday we got still more indications that a major escalation in Syria is imminent when Turkey said it would “definitely” participate in a ground operation. “It’s impossible to end the war without it,” an official told Bloomberg, speaking on the condition of anonymity. You see how that works? It’s the same logic that France employed when officials declared that the best way to halt the refugee crisis is to bomb Syria. It’s “impossible” to the end the war in Syria without … going to war in Syria. And of course we told you last monthe The White House was not only aware of this plan but was complicit in it.

The official also said there was no plan for a “unilateral” ground operation by Turkey or Saudi Arabia, but according to Yeni Safak newspaper’s Ankara correspondent, Turkey is planning to send troops 10km into Syria to establish “a safe zone.”

Meanwhile, Moscow and Ankara continue to accuse one another of being terrorists. What should be clear from the above is that there’s no telling who the Islamist rebels fighting to keep the Azaz corridor open are. It’s the same mishmash of Sunni militants fighting everywhere else in western Syria and though ISIS are not active in the area it seems likely that al Nusra and al Qaeda elements are present as well. As Russian PM Dmitri Medvedev recently told TIME, “they’re all bandits.”

Of course Russia isn’t entirely innocent. Although it’s impossible to verify reports, it seems possible that several Russian strikes hit hospitals on Monday, killing scores of civilians including some women and children. Ankara of course seized on the opportunity to accuse the Russians of being terrorists. “These attacks that we strongly condemn are unconscionable and obvious war crime under international law,” a statement from the Turkish foreign ministry reads. ” What is collateral damage when done by American drones becomes terrorism when done by America’s enemies.

The conclusion from all of this is simple: escalation imminent.

Turkey Says “Massive Escalation” Under Way In Syria As Saudis Launch Airstrikes

86388acd-a7bd-42db-ba91-aea3bcd38483
As US proxies in Syria, Turkey and Saudi Arabia, make threatening noises, Russia deployes 4 of its Su35 strike aircraft to the war zone – as if Putin is saying to NATO, “Come and have a go if you think you are hard enough”

Didn’t the leading military powers just agree to a ceasefire in Syria, you might well ask.

Well yes, just yesterday the print and television media was full of the ‘ceasefire’ the major powers had agreed to avert a humanitarian crisis in Syria. The usual suspects led by Scooby – doo villain lookalike John Kerry the Unites States Secretary of State mouth pious words about peace into the proffered microphones, paparazzi papped away with their cameras, breakthroughs were announced, <del>undeserving warmongers</del> world leaders were praised and everyone forgot the ISIS and Al Nusra Islamist groups who are involved in 99% of the fighting were not part of the agreement.

But the whole ceasefire thing was a scam. ISIS and al Nusra have been supported by the USA’s Central Intelligence Agency, funded by Turkey and armed by Saudi Arabia from the start.

So they are still bombing the allied coalition led by the USA and flicking V signs at Russian and Iranian forces because they daren’t actually shoot at the Russians in case it reveals to Putin’s boys where the rebels are hiding.

So it was looking like business as usual. Then we saw this:

Turkey Says “Massive Escalation” In Syria Imminent As Saudis Set To Launch Airstrikes

(from Zero hedge) Even as all sides – including the US, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and select rebel groups – pretend to be working towards a ceasefire and a diplomatic solution to the five year conflict in Syria, actions speak louder than words, and to put it as succinctly as possible, everyone is still fighting.

In fact, the fighting is more intense than ever. Russia and Hezbollah are closing in on Aleppo, the country’s largest city and a key urban center where rebels are dug in for what amounts to a last stand. If the city is liberated by the government (and yes, “liberated” is more accurate than “falls” because occupied territory belongs to the Syrian government, not to Sunni extremists), Assad will have regained control of the country’s backbone in the west.

That would effectively mean the end of the rebellion and the Gulf monarchies, not to mention Turkey, are not happy about it. “The main battle is about cutting the road between Aleppo and Turkey, for Turkey is the main conduit of supplies for the terrorists,” Assad said in an interview with AFP on Friday.

That supply line has been severed and now, it’s do or die time for the rebels’ Sunni benefactors in Ankara, Riyadh, and Doha. Either intervene or watch as Hezbollah rolls up the opposition under cover of Russian airstrikes, restoring the Assad government and securing the Shiite crescent for the Iranians.

As we documented extensively this week, the Saudis and the Turks are now set to invade. Assad has promised to “confront them”, which of course means that the IRGC and Hassan Nasrallah’s army are set to come into direct contact with Turkish and Saudi troops, setting the stage for an all-out sectarian war that will almost invariably end up pitting NATO against the Russians. Note that this is different from Yemen, where Tehran fights via proxies rather than directly against the Saudi military.

On Saturday the stakes were raised when Turkey said Saudi Arabia is set to send warplanes to Incirlik.

As a reminder, access to Incirlik was the carrot Erdogan used last summer to convince NATO to acquiesce to Ankara’s brutal crackdown on the PKK. “Let me wage war against my political rivals, and you can use our airbase,” is a fair approximation of Erdogan’s proposition.

Now, it appears the Saudis are set to use the base as a staging ground for strikes in Syria.

We new media journos tend to be ahead of the wave in news reporting of course (well those of us who can enter and move around in ‘the dark web’ without trepidation anyway – it’s not all private data for sale, malware merchants, goat porn and bomb making instructions you know) so over a week ago I was able to report:

Turkey and Sadui Arabia Already Have Troops Fighting In Syria

Now the Turkish government is admitting the ‘ceasefire is a joke:

from Zero Hedge:

Now, it appears the Saudis are set to use the base as a staging ground for strikes in Syria.

Realistically we think this Turkish / Saudi action will amount to to little more than a calculated provocation to Russia NATO might want war against Russia and China, but they don’t want to fire the first shot because the public opinion backlash will undermine the push for global government which is the real agenda behind all this shite.

Obamas ‘moderate Rebels’ Are mostly Syrian Gangsters

moderate-rebels
Still from the Russia Today video -don’t click to play, follow the link below.

 

Russia Today has an interview with a journalist who spent two years fighting alongside the Free Syrian Army rebels that have been trying to depose the Assad regime while defending themselves against ISIS and Al Nusra extremists.

The transcript of Sophie Shevardnadze’s interview with Bilal Abdul Kareem, whose video reports expose the ‘moderate rebels’ referred to as the west’s potential allies by Barack Obama and David Cameron.

The soundtrack of the inverview (or reading the transcript – Ms Shevardnadze’s accent and poor quality sound may make the invterview a difficult watch) will contain a few shocks for people foolish enough to believe the ‘moderate rebels’ bullshit, these guys are as bad as the religious fanatics, if not (morally at least) worse, because they do not have an insane religious belief to justify their cruelty and ruthlessness.

More On The Turkish Involvement With Illegal ISIS Oil Trades

A look at our prospects should twat – boy Cameron succeed in obtaining parliament’s approval for his wish to join Obama’s coalition of dodgy political opportunists in their attempt to overthrow Syria’s President Assad. Given that Putin has said many times, Assad stays, our outdated war planes don’t stand an ice cube in hell’s chance against Russian S34s and Growler Surface to Air missiles (SAMs). And that’s without factoring in China’s pledge to support it’s allies Putin and Assad.

Turkish Warplanes Shoot Down Russian Su24 Near Syrian Border

Having been preoccupied with completing the transfer of this site from a platform which is closing soon, we have a bit of catching up to do, particularly on the news from the end of the world …

There is a giant fan in the middle east, it has stirred up trouble since time immemorial. And right now there is a big, brown, smelly, cigar shaped object hurtling towards it at high speed. And the only people who can possibly stop it seem intent on propelling it towards those spinning blades more and more quickly.

The first news of the day that sent you Boggart Bloggers running for cover before the big brown smelly geopolitical thing hits the fan was that a Turkish F-16 fighter plane shot down what was initially said to be an unidentified warplane near the Syrian border after it violated Turkey’s airspace. A Turkish military official said the nationality of the downed aircraft was not immediately clear although if we assume that American, French and British planes would be approved in Turkish airspace, being theoretically on the same side, and apply the certainty that ISIS have no warplanes, it would have to be Russian.


Russian Su24 goes down in flames near Turkey / Syria border (image source)

Within moments of the news breaking that was confirmed to be the case.

The Russian jet crashed in the mountainous Jabal Turkmen area of Latakia, where air strikes and fighting between rebels and Syrian government forces were reported earlier on Tuesday. According to Reuters, Turkish F16s warned the jet repeatedly over the airspace violations before shooting it down. Officials in Moscow said the Su24 did not violate Turkish air space; (well they would say that, wouldn’t they?)

Shortly after the act of war against Russia by a NATO member was confirmed, the Turkish Lira went down like a lead Zepplin on currency markets while Europe stock markets plunged. The Turkish Defense Ministry was later reported in local media to have said said the Su-24 jet was warned after violating Turkish airspace and was then downed in line with Turkey’s rules of engagement, Anadolu says, citing officials at the presidency.

Russian defense officials responded almost immediately, sating that the incident will be deemed a clear act of aggression by a NATO-member country against Russia, the Russian Air Force said it could prove the aircraft was over Syria for the entire flight.

The ministry added that the pilots ejected, according to preliminary info, and that Russia trying to determine their fates, Interfax reports. Interfax also adds that the plane was probably downed by fire from ground, and that it had been flying at flying at an altitude of 6,000 meters.

Charlotte Church blames Syria’s brutal civil war on CLIMATE CHANGE (not ISIS or Obama))

Last Nights QT: Stephen Kinnock, Leanne Woor (obscured) Charles Moore, David Dimbleby (host) Charlotte, Stephen Crabbe (Image source)

Classical singer turned left wing fuckwit showed exactly what is wrong with the left on Question Time last night

Climate change played a role in Syria’s conflict, according to Charlotte Church. Speaking as part of the panel on BBC Question Time, the Welsh singer said drought in the region had caused food shortages, causing a strain on the country and giving rise to the conflict.

Her comments came as a response to a question regarding whether the UK should carry out air strikes in Syria. She pointed out that Syria experienced “one of the worst droughts in its history” between 2006 and 2011 and said not many people knew about this.

“This of course meant that there were water shortages and crops weren’t growing,” said Church.

Being a leftie little Charlotte might have the voice of an angel but she has the brains of a strawberry flan as she showed last night.

I read not long ago she’s down to her last £million, so she has blown her fortune and her talent as well as half the rugby players in south wales. OMFG, didn’t she just make a fucking fool of herself. And that’s probably blown what was left of her career. Poor daft cow.

ISIS, Democracy and the Dickheads

Just about the most pertinent comment I have seen to date on the US Neoliberal favoured method of bringing freedom and democracy to people of the middle east and north Africa who have lived quite happily under the ‘tyrannay’ of dictators like Assad and Gadaffi, knowing full well that should those dictators fall, the theocracies that would replace them were likely to be far more brutal and repressive.

Tyler over at Zero Hedge has a brilliant article out today on how Putin’s geopolitical skills have put Obama, Kerry and the US warmongers in a position where they must support Russia and Iran’s initiative to crush ISIS or admit that the US governnment was never interested in defeating ISIS, a group they regarded as proxies for their bid to topple Assad and turn Syrian into another failed state.

Quite how that would serve American interests is not clear, but Washington foreign policy never had a lot to do with global realities.
