Watching the @USIP event with @US4AfghanPeace now. Some points that resonate with me in this thread. 1/n
His opening remarks were prepared and nothing really new there--hit all the talking points he's made in recent appearances. 2/n
First Q from Stephen Hadley: What makes you hopeful that talks will succeed? A: Both sides understand that violence cannot be the answer forever. Afghan leaders recognize they made a mistake in the wake of Soviet withdrawal by fighting each other--want to rectify that now. 3/n

No shortage of “theory” is invoked to justify and legitimize torture. Everything can be employed in the service of the racist scriptures: modernity; secularism; the War on Terror; even anti-imperialism…
It happens that #Syria, was a torture state for decades before it became a major theater of the War on Terror, in which so many of the world’s crime agencies have demonstrated their skill by joining this torturous war; “Chemical” #Assad leading their way…
After the Syrian uprising began in March 2011, Assad’s regime abolished the state of emergency that had been in effect in the country since the Baathist coup of March 1963, only to replace it with laws of “combating terror,” moving from one form a state of exception to another.

"So let's see what happens to these
treasonous crooks...
a bunch of treasonous horrible
people and they use the intelligence
agencies of our country
to try and steal an election and
to try and do a coup."
Worth noting these "treasonous crooks" are the same bad actors working with NATO critters against #Libya #Syria and #Ukraine
A majority are also stakeholders in Brookings, Atlantic Council and/or CSIS
THEY are also running 44's policies out of more US embassies than not

One year ago #Turkey’s #Erdogan told during the #UN General Assembly that his country is going to create a so-called ‘safe zone’ in Northern #Syria by eliminating & ethnic cleansing the native population in the region and called on the International Community to support him
On October 2019 #Turkey started their unlawful border-cross operation into Northern Syria with the green light of the US and other western countries. The first target of Erdogan & his jihadists were the Kurdish-controlled regions #TwitterKurds
After few days of airstrikes on the cities Serêkaniyê, Tal Abyad and Qamishlo, Turkey started with the ground offensive. The first act of the Turkey-backed jihadists was the extra-judicial killing of Kurdish Politician #HavrinKhalef #TwitterKurds

Truly horrific testimony from a #Syria regime grave digger in the #AlKhatibTrial against former Assad officials charged w atrocity crimes.

Btw 2011-2017, up to 700 bodies would arrive at least twice a week from intelligence branches & military hospitals.…
The world knew about #Assad's #torture archipelago.

There was plenty of int'l reporting on the regime's arrests of dissenters, medical workers, journalists, & activists.

The torture, enforced disappearances & deaths in #Syria’s prisons was no secret.…
.@WafaMustafa9's farther was one of those who stood up for rights in #Syria, so the regime disappeared him.

The @EU2020DE shld be inspired by Wafa's courage & humanity, & make:
JUSTICE for #Syria's 100.000+ detained & disappeared dissenters #EU priorities.

SPECIAL ANALYSIS: #Trump has lashed out at rioters and looters in #Portland and #Kenosha, yet halfway around the world, the US #military is busy plundering what’s left of #Syria’s wealth on a vastly greater scale and with little publicity.

Film Review: On the surface, “For Sama” is about romance and childbirth, but underneath, it is very political.

SPECIAL ANALYSIS: If one believes in the restoration of international law and the tenets of the #UN Charter, then the withdrawal of US military forces from northern #Syria is a good thing. Here are some facts and history that explain why.

The CIA orchestrated the overthrow of Gaddafi in Libya by arming extremist militias. With Gaddafi dead, many militia members traveled to Syria/Iraq to join existing CIA-backed al Qaeda affiliats, thereby creating ISIS.
To rearm their mercenary militias, the CIA started a gun running op out of an annex near the US Embassy in #Benghazi. The weapons left the port, went to a CIA base in Turkey, then down into the hands of ISIS in Syria & Iraq.
The CIA annex in #Benghazi included contractors from Blackwater (aka US Mercenaries). Islamist militias thought the guns were at the Embassy, so they attacked it to get the weapons. Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed, as well as 3 CIA mercenaries in the process.

1. Why do the @SenateGOP and @POTUS @realDonaldTrump support @RTErdogan who commits genocide of #Christians in #Syria? Because Trump lives on #Istanbul #ISIS blood money the @GOP doesn't want to disturb Abu-Bedwetter. @SenMcSallyAZ @SenatorCollins @SenCoryGardner @joniernst

This OpEd is misleading in so many ways...I’ll try to recall few elements :
1/ For a smarter read on the French-German division of labor, @JosephdeWeck explains why you need military solidarity with Greece AND mediation efforts with Turkey.…
2/ A more serious analysis of the rethoric wld show TUR officials started issuing insulting statements against Macron personally in 2019, while his own statements focused on policy disagreements with TUR. There are simply no “rhetorical broadsides against Erdogan”.

Nearly 10 years on, with enough evidence to the contrary to fill history books for decades, I have just heard "experts" still speaking of an imaginary US push for regime change in #Syria and explaining that this has to stop.
They are devastated that American sanctions are what's really hurting the nice Syrian people who don't seem to have suffered a bit from Assad's barrel bombs, chemical weapons of mass destruction, mass displacement, relentless Russian airstrikes ...
... nor were Syrians hurt by, God forbid, the "exaggerated" killing machines of Hezbollah and Iran. No no, Syrians would be just fine and dandy if the world embraced Assad and just stopped bugging him with conditions like stop killing your people and we will lift sanctions ...

🛑🛑 Eye Opener Thread🛑🛑


Why @RTErdogan of @Turkey hijacked the Syrian revolution ??
2️⃣ Turkey passed #ISIS Terrorists from its lands to Syria and then supported them with the aim of destabilizing the Syrian revolution! but the question is still standing, Why?

This is the testimony of a Turkish terrorist who is one of the leaders of ISIS👇
3️⃣After the incursion of ISIS and the exodus of many Syrian refugees, who were used by Erdogan as a pressure card on the European Union, the forces of the revolution floundered, dispersed and quarreled with Turkish intervention
