1. #NES #Syria: I see what appear to be propaganda based reports amplifying a perceived conflict developing between #Russia and #Turkey. There are reports citing Pentagon source but I can find no Pentagon statement to confirm it. Absent that, I'm considering it propaganda.
2. ENKS appearing with Turkey and appearing to have rejected reconciliation in Syria is a serious development. Because I conclude Turkey is a fully corrupted society I suspect #ENKS has been co-opted. The point of this is it appears that ground is being prepared for another
3. Turkish attack on US force areas. Yesterday's strident propaganda piece in @kommersant that I read as an official statement that includes more propaganda to alienate Syrians and create a more dangerous situation for US forces supports Turkey's goal to advance ISIS restart

1. I remember Nasser. As a boy I thought he was cool.

Imagine an integration of Iraq, Syria & Lebanon as members of the United States of the Levant. Oil, gas, hydro and fresh water with motivated educated populations. None of that is possible under Islamist extremism.
2. Absent an integration, the great powers will forever use this region to compete. Clearly an international integration is a dream. But the federalization of the independent states, particularly Iraq & Syria, would result in a decentralized political system that is
3. self-defending. These nations will not survive outside of a secular society. They will continue to erupt on a regular predictable basis.

I have not seen any study on it so I will comment from my own observation based on mostly anecdotal evidence. Regions of Syria that

[Thread] The press conference btw @realDonaldTrump and @EmmanuelMacron today has been fascinating at many levels. The #ISIS part was in particular an excellent summary of the state of play...1/
While many commentators focused on the “#braindead” comment on #NATO in @PedderSophie ’s itw for @theeconomist, most of them missed the topic Pres. #Macron wanted to address with it...2/ economist.com/europe/2019/11…
The real question was : is the spirit of the alliance respected when a member (#Turkey) acts unilaterally in Northeastern Syria, endangers the fight against #ISIS and doing so harms a key security interest of other NATO members ? 3/

Pour nos amis français qui n'ont rien compris à la crise diplomatique entre la #Turquie et la #France et qui se sentent insultés par les propos d'#Erdogan, voici un récapitulatif pour vous éclairer. C'est à vous de décider à la fin qui a raison et qui a tort.
La #Turquie souffre du terrorisme du #PKK qui a fait non 40 mais "40 mille" morts depuis 1984. Les #Kurdes eux-mêmes (20 millions en Turquie) sont les 1eres victimes de ce groupe terroriste contrairement à ce que vous racontent vos médias.
Les #YPG qu'on vous présente comme "des anges sans ailes" qui combattent Daech sont en réalité la branche syrienne du #PKK reconnu comme une organisation terroriste par la #France elle-même.

US facing expanding radicalization problem - National Counterterrorism Center acting Director Russell Travers warns during talk at @WashInstitute the number of people in the #NCTC datat base has "grown by a factor of almost 20"
@WashInstitute NEW: "We have no indication that foreign terrorists have tried to exploit" the US refugee system, per #NCTC acting Dir Russell Travers
@WashInstitute Goal should be for US to have "near real time biographic & biometric screening" to keep terrorists out of the country, per #NCTC's Travers

After all the tough talk (in response to the infamous letter, on #YPG #PKK) & Threat: When it comes To action Running to #USA. Such independence! In #Turkey politics: the talk is almost always in 100% contrast to actual action. I’ll take the “almost” out- let’s go with “Always”😉
BTW: #Trump visit to #Turkey, the one amplified & promoted here since May 2019 has yet to materialize.
When it comes down to it, once you take the wishful-thinking & sugar-coating Out Of it, there are 2 broad categories: The Master Nations vs The “Butler” Nations. Sad, yes. Factual, definitely. Period.

Auf der Plattform @lehrer_online werden reaktionäre Narrative in Unterrichtsmaterial verwandelt. (Danke für den Hinweis: @Korallenherz) Ich habe mir die "Plakatreihe Linksextremismus" runtergeladen (299MB), entpackt und habe mir das einmal angetan. /1
Plakat 1 hat den unschuldigen Dateinamen plakat-was-ist-extremismus.pdf. Los geht's darin mit der Headline: "Extremismus - Gegen die Demokratie". Klar: das zentrale Motiv hier das #Hufeisen ist. /2
Warum das Hufeisen Bull#### ist? Hier entlang!
Wenn 1 Linksextremisten "in den Kopf schaut", sieht 1 natürlich, dass die keine "vielfältige und demokratische" Gesellschaft wollen und Stalin und Lenin "richtig und gut" finden. Vereinfachte und falsche Darstellung von Anarchie kommt später noch. Gibt 1 extra Plakat für... /3

President Trump confirms "Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is dead"
Trump says he watched most of the special forces raid. Describes an operation where #IS's leader fled into a tunnel with several of his children and detonated his vest. Trump says nonetheless that positive ID was possible.
Trump says that the #US has a long reach against all terrorists, #ISIS and others, reminds viewers that Al-Qaeda's Hamza bin Ladin, who was "saying very bad things" about America and its allies, was recently killed.

#Amnesty raising Alarm & Says #Turkey sending #Syrian #Refugees back to #Syria #SafeZone. Amnesty should also reminded the world that: #Europe does Not want & is NOT accepting any of these refugees. - - - usnews.com/news/world/art…
The Ludicrous Hypocrisy is so obvious & transparent: #Turkey has been hosting-housing-feeding 3+ Mil Syrian Refugees for YEARS (including healthcare & is education!) While #EU doing everything they can to avoid them entry. How is that for “Human Rights” Motto??! Enough already!
Do you know how much #Turkey has spent on #Syria refugees In the last 6 years? Over $40 Billion. Do you know how much the entire European nations in #EU contributed to this? Less than $5 Billion. Don’t let the #MSM misinform & fool you on this topic!

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. Awkward for Putin if he really had groomed Tulsi.

I think the Al-Qaeda she wanted @BarackObama to attack in 2015 are @HillaryClinton's #FSA jihadists. Also think @KremlinRussia_E told Trump to allow @RTErdogan to use them to murder Syrian Christians & Kurds. #TFSA.
2. I'm pretty sure that in Syria you'd rather take your chances with Assad than with ISIS/Al-Qaeda. And now they're the only options with Trump's surrender to ISIS. And Turkey should be listed jihadist state sponsor. IMO that's not subject to reasonable dispute.
3. Question for @HillaryClinton: Did you have anything to do with listing the #PKK and #Ocalon's arrest? I'm trying to research this.

Never has the self-suicide of #Syria's mainstream opposition been more clear than in recent days.

#Afrin was really bad, but this NE incursion (its manner; its consequences etc.) is truly beyond the pale -- in truth, what we've witnessed is a #Turkish campaign through-&-through.
It's clear now that the Dec 2016 loss of #Aleppo - in large part due to #Turkey selling it out to #Russia - was *the* turning point.

Opposition factions lost any sense of autonomy of action & over the years that followed, everyone but #JFS-#HTS & #AlQaeda existed *for* #Ankara.
An #American presence in NE #Syria kept at least some of this #Turkish ambition under wraps (just ), but #Trump's naive (or malicious?) "green light" decision after speaking with #Erdogan let everything loose.

Only now are we seeing the consequences -- and they're not yet clear.

Who are the #Kurds? Why should overthrow of Govt of #Syria be their objective? Are they on a quest for #Kurdistan or are they just pawns in the game of geopolitical players? What are the implications of the Turkish #OperationPeaceSpring for #India?
greatgameindia.com/kurds-kurdista…
In 1973 President Richard Nixon & Secretary of State Henry Kissinger instigated a CIA #Kurdish uprising in #Iraq against #SaddamHussein. The US walked away from the rebellion when Saddam and the Shah of #Iran settled their differences, leaving the #Kurds to face their own fate.
In addition to political disagreements and rivalries, tensions between the two dominant Iraqi #Kurdish political parties, the #Kurdistan Democratic Party #KDP and Patriotic Union of Kurdistan #PUK escalated to a civil war that killed more than 2,000 #Kurds in the mid-1990s.

Operation Timber Sycamore - How the West funded and trained #ISIS terrorists with the objective of overthrowing the Government of Syria. The #DeepState project ultimately phased out by @realDonaldTrump.
greatgameindia.com/operation-timb…
Operation Timber Sycamore is a covert operation authorized by Obama to train and equip the anti-Assad rebellion. However the op started way back when CIA was operating via Britain’s MI6 to avoid having to notify Congress that it was arming rebels in Syria. theamericanconservative.com/articles/how-c…
In 2012 Obama signed a top-secret executive order authorizing CIA to provide “non-lethal support” to the rebels in Syria aka #ISIS terrorists for the "Assad Must Go" Project.

Avant même le début de l'opération anti terroriste de la #Turquie au nord de la #Syrie contre la milice marxiste kurde #PKK classée terroriste, une grande opération de propagande a été lancée dans tous les médias occidentaux!

Voici un thread sur les éléments de cette propagande
1. Dans tous les articles ou émissions sur cette opération, on annonce que la cible est bien "LES KURDES"

L'objectif est de diaboliser l'opération et la #Turquie en la montrant contre un groupe ethnique, longtemps persécuté et non contre un groupe classé terroriste, le #PKK...
Hors la #Turquie est le pays non seulement qui a le plus de citoyens kurdes mais qui accueille 300 000 réfugiés syriens kurdes!!

Rien que le parti de #Erdogan a 40 députés kurdes et bcp de kurdes votent AKP

Pourquoi donc la Turquie attaquerait "les kurdes"? Quel intérêt ?

1. STATE DEPARTMENT

"First of all, the United States will not endorse this invasion; it will not give it any kind of political cover or in any way think that it is a good idea. It endangers our allies in the fight against terror, the #SDF, most of whom are from the region.
2. They’re not #PKK members per se, but they’ll fight for their homelands. Secondly, it undercuts our efforts to defeat #ISIS by drawing these SDF forces away from the battle in the south and, frankly, forcing our troops to focus on the military aspects of the invasion.
3. And then thirdly, it creates tremendous insecurity for the entire region.

Secondly, the United States will not give any military support. That was asked by the #Turks at various levels at various times, including in the call on Sunday. That was made clear to the Turks.
