.@MSNBC @POTUS @realdonaldtrump just admitted he betrayed Kurdish #KRG at Tuz Kuramtsu & Kirkuk confirming my earlier reporting. @SecPompeo's dirty @CIA deal.

@MSNBC @POTUS @realDonaldTrump @SecPompeo @CIA @masoud_barzani @DefenseIntel @StateDept @USConGenErbil @USEmbassyTurkey @USEmbassySyria @ckubeNBC @rabrowne75 Trump makes it sound like he didn't want to fight Iraq. He gave the Kirkuk oil region to Iran's #IRGC, not Iraq. Trump surrendered to Iran. And now he admitted it. Surrendered to #Iran and #ISIS. Real #MAGA moments. @JoeBiden
Plus that deal was Paul Manafort's last paying job. And it feathered Trump's Rosneft portfolio because it moved in and took over the Kirkuk gas and oil fields. @maddow

Some important facts when reporting on #TurkishArmy operations in #Syria:
•The #YPG has ethnically cleansed several cities of their Arab inhabitants as documented by @amnesty & others
•ISIS has carried out many terroris attacks inside #Turkey including 2016 Airport, 2017 NYE
•As with every war, each side pushes its own propaganda. The #PYD/#YPG have previously used images that were proven to be either doctored or from other countries
#Turkey says main aim is to create safe zone &go after “terrorists” but #OperationPeaceSpring has other motives too
•These include economic benefits from construction projects + others in post-conflict #Syria
•The issue of refugees has become a toxic electioneering one domestically in #Turkey. There’s a belief that by reducing their number Gov popularity will increase.

in the 19th and early 20th Centuries, Russia and G-Britain were competing for influence over the Ottoman Empire.After the latter's defeat in1918, the best solution was to allow the establishment of the Turkish Republic and not to be subordinated to either Russia or Britain.
#SDF
The two countries simply and brutally resolved this problem, and the cost was a complete abandonment of minorities. What is happening these days between #Russia and #NATO regarding the "backward" rivalry to win Turkey threatens the rest of the peoples of the historic Mesopotamia.
The world is watching what is going on in NE Syria. Turkey invades not to achieve political goals, but to complete the destruction of the culture of Mesopotamia. This is not a lecture in history, but since 1923, this country had been founded on panic from two things:

1/#SDF chief Gen. Mazloum: (1)Sent a letter to #Trump asking for mediation with #Turkey; (2) Requested a No Fly Zone to stop #Turkish airstrikes over #Syrian airspace. The U.S. not stopping Turkish airstrikes over the SDF Zone in N/E #Syria is the major source of tension now.
2/#SDF chief Gen Mazloum: "When our soldiers see how their mothers and fathers are being attacked and killed, and #Turkey is using our airspace to do it, that makes them angry with the United States." #Syria
3/#SDF chief Gen Mazloum: Still time for mediation with #Turkey to end the fighting in N/E #Syria. The SDF demands that #Turkish airstrikes stop (after US closes airspace), Turkish artillery strikes also. Also an end to cross-border raids with TSK and #Syrian rebel proxies.

The Kurdis Question

Since theres lot of #DeepState propaganda floating around, heres a #thread on the Geopolitical history of the #Kurds and how they have been used again and again as a pawn in the game for larger objectives.

Turkey
#KurdishGenocide
#KurdsBetrayedByTrump
Ever since the US invaded #Syria, the US and #Israel have supported the semi-autonomous #Kurdistan, with Israel purchasing $3.84 billion dollars worth of OIL from them, a move that has geopolitical and economic ramifications for all parties involved. newrepublic.com/article/118549…
In 2015, the Financial Times reported that #Israel had imported as much as 77 percent of its OIL supply from #Kurdistan. The sales were a sign of Iraqi Kurdistan’s growing assertiveness and the further fraying of ties between Erbil and #Baghdad. ft.com/content/150f00…

Recap: In the “Dialogue of the deaf” or “The debate over #Iraq-i #Kurdistan’s share of the federal budget”, I argue that the budget sharing ...

... agreement, like all prior ones, is flawed, unsustainable, & bound to fail.

Looking at the #KRG’s finances, with the help of the Deloitte audits, I argue that the KRG cannot, even if it wanted, to comply with its obligations under the #Iraqi federal budget terms.

The GoI & the #KRG need to embark on comprehensive re-write of the relationship in a such way that both parties believe that the benefits of the new relationship far outweigh the benefits of not having it.

1) Important: The #KDP has rejected sensible recommendations from the International Crisis Group @CrisisGroup on returning stability to #Sinjar so that the #Yazidi people can return home, rebuilding, and have a future. This affair deserves comment.
#KRG #Kurdistan #Iraq
2) The @CrisisGroup is one of the few analyst entities to produce reasonable suggestions that, in fact, reflect what the Yazidis have been demanding for the past 4 ½ years. They recently recommended that the #Yazidi people choose their own administrative leaders for #Sinjar.
3) Dindar Zebari (pictured in 1st tweet), whose lovely job it is to craft responses to the many reports from around the world that criticize KDP policy and HR record, responded, stating that Sinjar already has a mayor (qaymaqam)—Mahama Khalil—who has been elected by the people.

La #Turchia bombarda #Sinjar ed uccide Mam Zaki, uno degli eroi che salvò decine di migliaia di #ezidi dal genocidio dell'#ISIS.

1) Una notizia terribile, l'ennesimo crimine atroce e disumano della #Turchia contro il popolo curdo.
Ieri intorno alle 16 un raid turco ha colpito alcuni veicoli (pare 3) delle forze di autodifesa ezide #YBS che stavano tornando dalla commemorazione del massacro di #Kocho.
2) Tra il 3 ed il 15 Agosto 2014 il villaggio di #Kocho nei pressi di #Sinjar rimane sotto assedio da parte dell'ISIS.
Tra il 15 Agosto e le prime ore del 16 Agosto i miliziani dell'#ISIS entrarono nel villaggio. Radunarono tutta la popolazione, circa 1700 persone, nella scuola.

1. I urge young #Kurds across the US to be more politically active. No excuses. Know your elected representatives, get in touch with their offices & educate them on the Kurdish plight. Kurds with access to Capital Hill in DC have more responsibility, we can influence policy.
2. We don’t need fancy offices. We know what brings Kurdistan down, we know who those are that work with Turkey, Iran. We can provide lawmakers with a different voice, one that is for the sole interest of Kurdistan. For how long will you complain but do nothing to change it?
3. Take advantage of the institutions that exist, they’re for us to utilize. Don’t allow corrupt individuals & offices to push party agendas. You have access to members of Congress, as Kurdish officials do. It’s very simple. Call👉make an appointment👉educate.

1) Today afternoon #Iraq, 10/21/2017, all #Yazidis in #Sinjar that are receiving a salary from #KRG were informed to leave Sinjar & go to =>
2)#Kurdistan or their salary will be cut off.
3) This move will cause a further humanitarian devastation on the already suffering #Yazidis who have hardly anything to begain with post =>

1) A MONUMENTAL DAY: The #KDP has FULLY WITHDRAWN from #Sinjar. I'm completely SPEECHLESS—(well, not completely): Bye-bye KDP!
#Yazidi #Iraq
2) After over 3 years of fighting for this outcome, the #Yazidi community has finally scored a major victory in reclaiming their homeland.
3) After #Peshmerga withdrew from Kirkuk yesterday (for which the PUK was hit w/ blame), the effect continues in KDP-controlled areas today.
