One year ago #Turkey’s #Erdogan told during the #UN General Assembly that his country is going to create a so-called ‘safe zone’ in Northern #Syria by eliminating & ethnic cleansing the native population in the region and called on the International Community to support him
On October 2019 #Turkey started their unlawful border-cross operation into Northern Syria with the green light of the US and other western countries. The first target of Erdogan & his jihadists were the Kurdish-controlled regions #TwitterKurds
After few days of airstrikes on the cities Serêkaniyê, Tal Abyad and Qamishlo, Turkey started with the ground offensive. The first act of the Turkey-backed jihadists was the extra-judicial killing of Kurdish Politician #HavrinKhalef #TwitterKurds

Truly horrific testimony from a #Syria regime grave digger in the #AlKhatibTrial against former Assad officials charged w atrocity crimes.

Btw 2011-2017, up to 700 bodies would arrive at least twice a week from intelligence branches & military hospitals.…
The world knew about #Assad's #torture archipelago.

There was plenty of int'l reporting on the regime's arrests of dissenters, medical workers, journalists, & activists.

The torture, enforced disappearances & deaths in #Syria’s prisons was no secret.…
.@WafaMustafa9's farther was one of those who stood up for rights in #Syria, so the regime disappeared him.

The @EU2020DE shld be inspired by Wafa's courage & humanity, & make:
JUSTICE for #Syria's 100.000+ detained & disappeared dissenters #EU priorities.

The CIA orchestrated the overthrow of Gaddafi in Libya by arming extremist militias. With Gaddafi dead, many militia members traveled to Syria/Iraq to join existing CIA-backed al Qaeda affiliats, thereby creating ISIS.
To rearm their mercenary militias, the CIA started a gun running op out of an annex near the US Embassy in #Benghazi. The weapons left the port, went to a CIA base in Turkey, then down into the hands of ISIS in Syria & Iraq.
The CIA annex in #Benghazi included contractors from Blackwater (aka US Mercenaries). Islamist militias thought the guns were at the Embassy, so they attacked it to get the weapons. Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed, as well as 3 CIA mercenaries in the process.

1. Why do the @SenateGOP and @POTUS @realDonaldTrump support @RTErdogan who commits genocide of #Christians in #Syria? Because Trump lives on #Istanbul #ISIS blood money the @GOP doesn't want to disturb Abu-Bedwetter. @SenMcSallyAZ @SenatorCollins @SenCoryGardner @joniernst
3. And it's all on @Pontifex and his Fascist @CatholicBishops for laying down with the US Evangelicals to advance anti-secular birth-control policies.

This OpEd is misleading in so many ways...I’ll try to recall few elements :
1/ For a smarter read on the French-German division of labor, @JosephdeWeck explains why you need military solidarity with Greece AND mediation efforts with Turkey.…
2/ A more serious analysis of the rethoric wld show TUR officials started issuing insulting statements against Macron personally in 2019, while his own statements focused on policy disagreements with TUR. There are simply no “rhetorical broadsides against Erdogan”.

Nearly 10 years on, with enough evidence to the contrary to fill history books for decades, I have just heard "experts" still speaking of an imaginary US push for regime change in #Syria and explaining that this has to stop.
They are devastated that American sanctions are what's really hurting the nice Syrian people who don't seem to have suffered a bit from Assad's barrel bombs, chemical weapons of mass destruction, mass displacement, relentless Russian airstrikes ...
... nor were Syrians hurt by, God forbid, the "exaggerated" killing machines of Hezbollah and Iran. No no, Syrians would be just fine and dandy if the world embraced Assad and just stopped bugging him with conditions like stop killing your people and we will lift sanctions ...

Why @RTErdogan of @Turkey hijacked the Syrian revolution ??
2️⃣ Turkey passed #ISIS Terrorists from its lands to Syria and then supported them with the aim of destabilizing the Syrian revolution! but the question is still standing, Why?

This is the testimony of a Turkish terrorist who is one of the leaders of ISIS👇
3️⃣After the incursion of ISIS and the exodus of many Syrian refugees, who were used by Erdogan as a pressure card on the European Union, the forces of the revolution floundered, dispersed and quarreled with Turkish intervention

Ενδιαφέρουσα τα όσα είπε ο Λαβρόφ για Κυπριακό κατά την επίσκεψή του, από την Συρία, στη #Cyprus. Προτεραιότητα ωστόσο της #Russia παραμένει το Συριακό λόγω της οικονομικών στη χώρα που δεν μπορεί να αντέξει η Μόσχα. Εξού και οι πιέσεις προς #Assad για εφαρμογή του 2254
Η ρωσική εξωτ. πολιτική για την #EastMed έχει ως βάση (στρατιωτικά, λογιστικά & γεωπολιτικά) την #Syria όπου πλέον η Μόσχα επιδιώκει περιορισμό & σταδιακή παραγκώνιση του Άσαντ καθώς & διαβούλευση με την #Turkey λόγω Ίντλιμπ. Η Μόσχα δεν θα πληρώνει έναν "rigorous" Άσαντ
Επιπλέον ο χρόνος μετά τον Νοέμβριο & η αλλαγή (ή μη) παραδείγματος στις ΗΠΑ κάνει την Μόσχα να τηρεί στάση "wait & see". Η σύγκλιση συμφερόντων Ισραήλ-ΗΑΕ-Σ. Αραβίας δεν επηρεάζει ιδιαίτερα τις στρατηγικές της επιδιώξεις. Η Τουρκία ωστόσο παραμένει κλειδί για την Μόσχα

Assad wants more Russian investments

That #Syria ‘s citizens are suffering from a precipitous decline in standards of living is not a secret

Indeed, during worst period of the war, economic conditions were far better than now

Why? Are sanctions the only reason? =>
2-As local currency lost value, Govt criminalized any dealings in US $. Anyone caught with foreign currency goes to jail. Wires from outside dried up. This made $ more scarce and pushed its value even higher against local currency (SYP) triggering more draconian measures by Govt
3-During the war, armed groups received huge sums of $ from outside. They spent this money buying food and other necessities. This money flew back into the eco as sieges meant that they had to pay exuberant prices. End of the war also meant end of foreign transfers to fighters

The Rothschilds have been in control of the world for a very long time, their tentacles reaching into many aspects of our daily lives, as is documented in the following timeline.

However, before you jump to the timeline, please read this invaluable introduction which will
tell you who the Rothschilds are as oppose to who they claim to be.

The Rothschilds claim that they are Jewish, when in fact they are Khazars.

They are from a country called Khazaria, which occupied the land locked between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea which is now

Prophetic & very astute.

On 16 August 1953 the #Israel/i Amb to #Turkey Maurice Fisher wrote, inter alia, the following to Jerusalem:

"Our relations with #Turkey have been extremely good of late...[but] these good relations could deteriorate overnight ... >>>
[2/4] ... and we should learn from the bitter experience of others.
The Turks have yet to achieve a standard by which, in the event of disagreement with another state, they can weigh up the positions of both sides ... >>>
[3/4 ] ... For them, there exists one sole principle: in any conflict with a foreigner, whether a private individual, a company or a state, the Turk is always right.»

(Pls go to [4/4] for the source. Thx)
