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.

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…

I've made my thoughts clear on how *bad* #Trump's decisions have been for #Syria policy (& the #SDF).

But let's just get something straight:

- The U.S. knowingly decided to ally with a designated terrorist organization (the #PYD/#YPG) in 2014 to fight #ISIS in #Kobani & beyond.
#pt: The State Dept, NCTC & CIA all viewed the #PYD as the #PKK's #Syria affiliate in 2013 -- that's in public documents.

That label was [quietly] removed in 2014.

In #Turkey - a #NATO state, whether we like it or not - the #PKK is viewed as *the* existential security threat.
#pt: #Turkey was complicit in terrible #Syria border control & ties to #Nusra. No doubt.

But put that aside for minute:

Imagine if a foreign state brought #ISIS to #Mexico & armed it to fight cartels, while assuring #Washington: "don't worry, they're only interested in Mexico."

Tomorrow Sept.16 Ankara to host trilateral #Russia-#Iran-#Turkey summit on #Syria. It is expected to announce quite important decisions on, e.g. finalization of the Constitutional Committee & political process in general, #Idlib, return of #refugees, humanitarian aid. Stay tuned.
#Putin just landed in #Ankara for trilateral #Syria summit. Apart of #Syria related issues #Russia, #Iran & #Turkey will likely to discuss the recent attack on #SaudiArabia oil facilities which led to 19% increase of Brent price & will likely increase regional tensions.
#Putin & #Erdogan just finished bilateral talks. Instead of planned hour-long meeting they spent 2 hrs.
Topics discussed are quite evident judging by #Russia's lineup:
- #Lavrov
- FP aide Ushakov
- energy minister Novak
- defense minister #Shoigu
- #Syria special envoy Lavrentiev

1. The Turks who are actively working with both Al-#Qaeda and #ISIS will never stop their threats against US forces and our Syrian partners because we continue to allow them to throw all #Kurds into the Turks' racist basket. The only solution is for @StateDept to de-list the PKK.
2. The #PKK has never threatened the US. We should recognize that the Turkish apartheid state has created an ongoing civil war and deal with the combatants in ways that are in the US best interest but using the "terrorist" designation as a favor for an ally is counter-productive.
3. When we charge terrorist violations we are able to prove an element of the offense by simply proving the person was a member of a listed group. But listing must be of a terrorist organization. Courts do not challenge the elements of the listing because generally they are met.

The #Assassination Of #Turkey Official In #Erbil Just Got More Intriguing. From #PKK angle to #Iran angle, we’ll wait... - - - “Veil of mystery shrouds Turkish diplomat's murder in Erbil” almon.co/38g6
As I’ve said here before #Turkey #MIT ranks very high in top international intelligence agencies list- The mystery will be solved fairly quickly, but we’ll we get to know the entire story? Time will show...
When I moved to #Turkey last year I know I’d be positioned in the center of #geopolitical happening hub- man, was I right! Almost daily developments with global implications ... nonstop. For an analyst I can’t think of any other place in the world with more “happenings”😉

Es gibt neues von #Demirtas er geht in seinem Thread auf die Anklagepunkte ein, bitte nicht lachen !
1. Punkt : Geheimer Informant soll bestätigt haben, dass er auf Anweisung der #KCK Kurdisch im Parlament gesprochen haben.
Problem dabei : Nicht er hat Kurdisch gesprochen
sondern, der Abgeordnete Ahmet Türk. Außerdem gibt es diesen Informaten nicht, dieser Anklagepunkt wurde von einem Staatsanwalt formuliert, der später wg. #Fetö Verfahren verhaftet wurde.
Anklagepunkt 2: Eine Familie in Elazig soll der Abgeordneten #Kisanak ein Brief überreicht haben welche Anweisung der #PKK beinhaltete, dieser soll mit dem Computer von d. Parteimitglied Demirbas erstellt und ausgedruckt worden sein.
