1. When the #SDF liberated #Tabqa, many said that the #Kurd majority #SDF could not function in an Arab city. They did not seek to rule only empower Tabqa's Arabs to create a self defense force, the Tabqa Military Council. Now brothers & sisters in arms are coming to the rescue
2. of the #Kurds and #Christians and #Arabs in the north under threat from the #TurkishISIS Orcs. Like Lord of the Rings, the torch was lit and the the call was answered. Turkey under Erdogan is the enemy of all humanity and its army is the army of Orcs from the underworld.
3. Those who seek genocide deserve to be destroyed. Americans have also been betrayed and our vengeance will have to wait until next year when when we send the @GOP Orc army, @senatemajldr & the @SenateGOP majority packing and, in 2022 #JihadiJim Risch too. @SenatorRisch

Tomorrow we learn if @POTUS @RealDonaldTrump can remain President. If his financial dealings in Turkey cause him to continue to support #Kurd & #Christian genocide he must be impeached and tried by the Senate. #NeverAgaing @SenateGOP @SenateDems @WHNSC @robertcobrien @EsperDoD
@POTUS @realDonaldTrump @SenateGOP @SenateDems @WHNSC @robertcobrien @EsperDoD Here is today's battle map of Tal Tamir. Many Syriac & Armenian Christians under attack by @RTErdogan ISIS/al-Qaeda force that Trump and his lackeys @LindseyGrahamSC @senatemajldr greenlighted to commit genocide. Evangelicals & @USCCB are silent and IMO are criminally complicit.
Why does @realDonaldTrump allow Erdogan to murder Christians? Why is he so afraid of Erdogan? Read NY Times nyti.ms/32DQzdR. It's money. Trump sells them out for money. What does Trump do? He brings a blasphemer @Paula_White into @Whitehouse who worships money not God.

1. Will Turkey's #Kurdish and #Christian #Genocide result in the #Christian world demanding the liberation of #Constantinople? Was that Putin's plan all along to get @RTErdogan to give him an ethno-religious pretext to seize the straights? Now that all US public hates Turkey
2. is there any chance under @POTUS @realDonaldTrump the US would commit #American troops' lives to save Turkey now and disrupt Putin's plan? Who could have dreamed up such a devilish plot?
3. When the Crusaders were closing in remember Turkey, it was a #Kurd who defended Al-Quds.

Using an #America-centric lens to criticize #Turkey for making national security judgements based on a #Turkey-centric lens is analytically dubious.

Whether we like it or not, #Turkey has fought a 40-year #PKK insurgency & sees the #PKK as its No.1 national security threat.
#pt: And FWIW, using Aldar Khalil as the sole source to claim that the #PYD-#PKK relationship is solely defined by "intellectual lineage" & 'sympathy with one another's political goals' is analytically disingenuous.

Perhaps instead read the #PYD itself:

#pt: If the #PYD's very own website (deleted - but archived - after teaming up with the U.S. military in 2014) wasn't enough, take the public assessments of U.S. government's dedicated National CounterTerrorism Center (part of the Intelligence Community):

1. @iran_policy respects freedoms of all #Iranian national minorities as stated in its finding constitution. #NCRI is built upon solidarity, therefore it does not hold the least interest of hurting this foundation.
#IranConferenceNYC opened this topic:
2. Ali Bahrami of Iranian Kurdistan Party (Khebat) at #IranConferenceNYC
He said, D only solution 4a #FreeIran is #IranRegimeChange
Khebat crosses out negotiations with religious dictatorship, believes unity is key among all Kurdish parties.

3. Farzin Hashemi, #NCRI Foreign Affairs Committee says thru sheer repression & terror mullahs try2 prevent flare-up of popular uprising in #Iran to stop spreads of explosive rage by compatriots in Kurdistan, Khuzestan, Baluchistan...

1. @StateDept needs to release intelligence we have connecting Turkish government to #ISIS & Al-#Qaeda & issue Red level departure warning for all US civilians in Turkey. We must face the reality that #Turkey is threatening an imminent attack on our forces to commit more acts of
2 anti-#Christian, #Kurd & #Ezidi genocide and move to capture the #Syrian oil and gas fields we and the #SDF liberated from Turkey's ally ISIS. Now #Iran is coordinating for an attack from Deir EzZor. Enough is enough. Expose Turkey as ISIS.

PM #ImranKhan conducts effective+innovative visit of 'Religious Diplomacy' to #Iran. #Tehran's role in #India's policy of containing #Pakistan & role of groups using Pak soil agst Iran, loom large. My observations in this #Thread./1 #AhmedQuraishi @AQpk
Four main questions emerge from #Pakistan PM #ImranKhan's #Iran visit:
1. Are #Pakistani groups committing terror in #Iran?

2. Will #IRGC stop terrorism inside Pakistan?

3. Are Pakistan & Iran equally responsible?

4.Was PM's visit helpful?

/2

#Thread by #AhmedQuraishi @AQpk
Fact: There are no #Pakistani groups committing terrorism in #Iran. All #Iranian groups run by Iranian citizens who move across Ir/Pk/Af border triangle. No state effectively controls this area. Main hideouts of Iranian grps are inside Iran, supported by Iranian citizens /3

Thread: #Turkish doctor in #Sweden

“When I was interning at a nursing school in #Turkey I would deliberately prick #Kurdish children with needles. I miss those days”. She needs to brought to justice she lives in #Stockholm
She used to lock #Kurdish children in Bathrooms for hours
#twitterkurds #Kurd #Kurdistan #Rojava
She also says that organs of Kurdish children must be removed and be given to Turkish children.
This is a doctor working out there on the loose! With no honor or dignity.
Kurds in Sweden and Stockholm should bring her to justice!

Always great to be on @cnni with @rosemaryCNN Church.

Francona: #Syria would be insane to use chemical weapons in the assault on #Idlib governorate. Bashar al-Asad knows using chemical weapons will draw a military response from the United States, France and possibly the UK.
It’s hard to understand the absurdity, but it appears that as long as you only use barrel bombs, artillery, rockets, and missiles to kill, it is deemed almost acceptable, but cross that line and use chemicals, the ire of the world demands a military response. So why use them?
There is no military reason for the Syrians to use chemical weapons. With #Russia|n airpower, artillery, and rocket and missile strikes, combined with #Iran|ian and Hizballah support on the ground, the Syrian military has the required force to reassert control over Idlib.

It’s extraordinary just how much BS gets created in people’s minds.

I never once expressed “support” for #Turkey’s #Afrin operation.

- Did I say it was inevitable? Yes.
- Did I observe it & comment on its advance vis-a-vis broader #Syria dynamics (i.e. my job)? Yes.
My critique has always been about the imbalance/s created in northern #Syria by U.S. counter-#ISIS policy.

The #YPG was/is the #PKK - all U.S. officials admit that in private. That didn’t necessarily have to preclude working with them, but ignoring it caused big, big problems.
#pt: As an analyst of terrorist groups, I did see a certain irony & short-sightedness in the words of one top, serving U.S. official, “allying with a terrorist group (#PKK) to fight another terrorist group (#ISIS).”

It’s got nothing to do with any position on #Kurds, whatsoever.
