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

This is Hevrin Khalaf. A 34-year-old Syrian Kurdish political leader. She was respected internationally, as someone striving for peace in the region. But on the 12th of October she was silenced forever. Watch the BBC documentary right here :
On the 12th of October, Hevrin Khalaf set off from al-Hasakah around 5.30am with her driver, Farhad Ramadan. They were heading west on the M4 motorway. Earlier that morning eyewitnesses report, a #SNA military convoy was seen crossing into Syria from Turkey.
This video, filmed by an Ahrar al-Sharqiya fighter, shows the sun has just risen, putting the time between 6.30am and 7am. It was the same time that Hevrin Khalaf was using the M4, to get to her office that morning. #Syria

1. In the late summer of 2014, I begged the Obama administration to provide cover & JPADS drops to save the few hundred #Kurdish YPG YPJ left surrounded by #Daesh in #Kobane. And he did it. I have reported every day on their courageous battle against Daesh. My YouTube channel
2.every Pentagon briefing from 2016 to #Daesh's surrender. IMO Trump's betrayal was a greater blunder than killing #QassemSoleimani.

We need a place to go. The #SDC and #SDF can administer a save civil society based on self governance and the Golden Rule.
3. Free, secular and Democratic. It may not be too late. But we have to act fast. Ask your members of Congress to support the SDC and SDF and demand Turkey withdraw from North and East Syria. Turkey is booting us. Now Iraq. We need trusted friends. @SenatorRisch @senatemajldr

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

Amid #Assad regime offensive in south #Syria, worth bearing in mind its continued bombing of areas in #Idlib - also under a so-called “de-escalation zone.”

Having watched the southern zone dissolved w/o response from #Jordan or #Israel, #Turkey’s now warning #Idlib = “red line."
#Turkey has deployed its own armed forces to x12 “observation posts” fencing in opposition areas & enforcing de-escalation.

#Russia seems invested in stability in #Idlib - but for how long?

After #Deraa, will #Assad & #Iran destroy the last remaining “de-escalation zone”?
For now, expect periodic regime bombing raids & notably, also ‘spoiling’ attacks by fighters unrestrained by #Turkey’s iron grip.

#HTS will remain internally divided on de-escalation -- the more regime bombings, the heavier the pressure for #HTS to respond = #Assad opportunity.
