US-LED COALITION PLOT FOR CIA ASSET BARZANI’S IRAQI KURDISH DEATH SQUADS TO GO THROUGH TURKEY TO SYRIA. (21.10.2014)
LAST UPDATED 24.10.2014
There is nothing polite most people anywhere have ever found to say about the CIA run Barzani death squads who only mention the word Kurd to try to disguise their only real interest has always been murdering anyone who might stand in the way of their making lots of money out of oil.
There are two very good articles (below) by Gilles Munier explaining the long treacherous Barzani and Co, which go a long way to explaining what the US led coalition are currently up to now, when they mention the word Kurd, when they really mean their ever faithful henchman Barzani.
"...Over the weekend, Sen. John McCain...called for “more boots on the ground”, the further arming of Kurdish Peshmerga forces [vicious CIA death squads], creating a no-fly zone and buffer zone in Syria [like the illegal one that led to the illegal Iraq war] and ratcheting up the number of US-led airstrikes [to try to ground the Syrian air-force]..."
"...Barzani [The CIA] told the new allied Kurdish parties, after the deal was reached, that it was an indication of the victory of [the CIA controlled] 'Kurds' over their long term enemies..."
"...Damascus, SANA Information Minister Omran al-Zoubi reiterated that combating terrorism in the region and in Syria in particular cannot be carried out without coordination with the Syrian state and leadership.
“Syria is going ahead with countering terrorism till the end,” regardless of it not being part of the recently formed US-led international coalition to fight terrorism or not being coordinated with in this regard, al-Zoubi stressed in an interview with the Syrian TV satellite channel broadcast on Tuesday.
While affirming Syria’s support to Ayn al-Arab, the Information Minister asserted that “not an inch of the Syrian territories will be cut off in favor of no one, neither terrorist gangs or groups, nor states or entities.”
In response to the Turkish President’s statements about establishing buffer zones in Syria and about Ayn al-Arab being a strategic area for him, al-Zoubi reiterated that the city in question is “part of the Syrian land and a Syrian city and not part of the Turkish land, and this should be clear to everybody.”
"For its campaign against Kobane, [the US-led] Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isil) has converged en masse for a conventional attack upon a fixed geographic point [to try and provide a phoney pretext for no fly zones etc]
...The only real answer to the war is removal of the Assad regime....
The EU, the regional actors and US can declare, on the basis of longstanding international norms, [utter rubbish] that these [?] acts of aggression – as well as the willing self-defence of the locals – demand and justify a robust military response on behalf of the besieged
"...Since Saturday evening, the ISIL terrorists have been transferring a number of their injured members to Turkey through Tal Kania Araban road," independent local sources in Syria's Kurdish region told FNA on Monday.
"The Turkish army lit the sky by the help of flares to facilitate this transfer at night," they added.
...Asked about the US-led coalition's airstrikes on ISIL forces, Shami said the bombing campaign which targeted ISIL positions in the Eastern and Southern parts of the city were useless as terrorists' artilleries and other heavy weapons and equipment and the main transit route of the terrorists, from Tal Abyaz and Jerablus towards Kobani, were not raided at all...
"The documents carried by those terrorists who have been killed show that they are mostly foreigners and come from Chechnya, Turkey, Morocco, Egypt, Belgium and France to Syria and their passports have all been sealed in Turkey," Issou said."
"...A new video has emerged from northern Syria showing the weapons the US says is sending to Kurdish forces end up in the hands of the ISIL terrorists.
The video shows masked insurgents inspecting the military equipment which was airdropped in areas controlled by ISIL near the Syrian border city of Kobani..."
"...Mahmoud Haji Omar, a member of the [Barzani] peshmerga committee in the Kurdistan parliament, confirmed that peshmerga troops were preparing to deploy to Kobani:
“We are planning to send a number of [Barzani] peshmerga forces to go and fight in Kobani against (Isis). We are currently selecting the fighters that will be going to Kobani. Turkey has agreed to give passage as long as the peshmerga fighters bring back the weapons that they take in to Kobani.”
“We want the region to be cleared of all threats. We assess the military and medical materials aid provided by our Iraqi Kurdish brothers and airdropped by the United States to all forces defending Kobani in this framework,” he said.
“There are seven or eight groups that are fighting together with the PYD [the Democratic Union party] [in Syria].”
"...Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu has said Iraqi Kurdish security forces, the Peshmerga, have yet to cross into Syria via Turkey to help defend Kobane against ISIL. ‘Talks about their route are continuing. We won’t publicize any details until they are finalized,’ he added...
“We didn’t promise anyone a corridor [to transfer military aid to Kobane],” Çavuşoğlu also said, while noting that the Syrian Kurdish border town can be legitimately defended only by the Free Syrian Army or the Peshmerga, the Iraqi Kurdish security forces.[complete and utter nonsense. the Turkish govt. have no legal authority to lay claim to say anything about Syrian territory]
"Now, the Peshmerga wants to help the PYD through our territory. We consider this request to be a legitimate [rubbish] one. We take our steps wisely. We've been distributing humanitarian aid since the beginning and we will continue to do so," Çavuşoğlu told Hürriyet in a separate statement.
“The Iraqi Kurdish regional aministration [Kurdistan Regional Government] has said it was cooperating with Turkey and the United States in order to help Kobane. In fact, we too are helping Peshmerga forces cross into Kobane for support. Our talks on this subject are continuing,” Cavusoglu told a news conference in Ankara without giving further details.
The comments confirmed an earlier Rudaw report from Erbil on Monday that Turkey was giving passage to Peshmerga fighters into Kobane.
"ISTANBUL, Turkey – Syria's main Kurdish rebel group, the People's Protection Units (YPG), confirmed Sunday it was fighting alongside other rebel forces against Islamic State (ISIS) in the besieged town of Kobane and other Kurdish areas.
The YPG and the FSA, a loose group of non-Islamist rebels fighting to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad, have had an ambiguous relationship since the start of the war three-and-a-half years ago.
... the YPG has been wary to support the mostly Arab FSA over concerns the Kurds will be ignored in any post-Assad government formed by political factions allied to the FSA....
The move will likely allay the United States, which revealed last week it had held direct talks with the Democratic Union Party (PYD), the political arm of the YPG. The Kurdish fighters said they were helping the U.S.-led coalition identify ISIS targets for air strikes in the largely Kurdish town of Kobane where the YPG has been battling the jihadists for more than a month.
The U.S. military said on Sunday it had carried out 11 strikes with Saudi Arabia and the UAE near Kobane over the weekend, destroying 20 ISIS fighting positions, five vehicles and two buildings held by the militants.
...the PYD's co-leader, Salih Muslim, has held talks with Turkish officials in Turkey as recently as this month.
Apart from joining the main Syrian opposition, Turkey wants the PYD to distance itself from the PKK and to relinquish any ties it says the group has with the Assad government, which Ankara sees as the main instigator of unrest in Syria and which it wants to see overthrown.
"...One year after he was banned by the KDP government PYD Co-President Salih Muslim is once again in the KRG.
Following the collapse of the Hewler Agreement and the subsequent failure to form committees aimed at working out national, foreign relations, security and social issues, a delegation headed by PYD Co-President Muslim – who was last within the borders of the KRG in October 2013 and is back following the reversal of his ban by the KPD government – continues to attend meetings in Hewler (Erbil) and Duhok. Constituents of the PYD and TEV-DEM, as well as a delegation headed by KDP leader Mesud Barzani, representatives of the YNK, and representatives of the National Congress of Syrian Kurds (ENKS) are attending the meetings...
Meeting between Muslim and Barzani
Hiso noted that in the meeting between Muslim and Barzani many issues were discussed – including the general situation in Kurdistan...
Duhok meetings must not come to nothing
PYD Hewler Representative Hiso stressed that all eyes are on the current meetings, saying “the eyes of the entire Kurdish public are on the meetings taking place in Duhok. ..."
"...Based on hints from both US and Israel, the primary object of a US-led ‘No-Fly Zone’ would be to disable the Syrian government’s air defense system through a series of airstrikes. After the No-Fly Zone is established, then the push will begin to carve out a NATO-run Buffer Zone, or ‘DMZ’ along the Turkish-Syrian which could help to facilitate additional US ground forces into the region in 2015. [...] It would be naive to think that after the initial month of acquiring ‘ISIS targets’, the Pentagon would not move ahead to coordinate its airstrikes with Kurdish and ‘Moderate Rebels’ on the ground in order to mitigate any influence on the ground from Damascus...."
"...Moreover, Hezbollah Secretary General said that each day passes "our belief gets stronger that our fight in Syria was to protect Lebanon... Today, we - the Resistance axis - are the victorious. When enemies' schemes fail, that means you are victorious, knowing that the battle still has long way before reaching the final victory."
"We are in front of golden opportunity to break the takfiri scheme," his eminence expressed.
Sayyed Nasrallah, however, believed that ongoing conflict is neither on Syria, nor on toppling President Bashar Al-Assad, but to re-draw a new map of the region, emphasizing that survival of ISIL serves the US and Turkey interests.
He described the International-Arab coalition against ISIL as "nail trimming operation" and "setting red lines" for this terrorist group in order not to affect the Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Arbil, indicating that raids launched since the beginning of the operation are equal to the raids launched in one single day during July war that the Zionist entity launched on Lebanon in 2006.
Sayyed Nasrallah stated that United States uses ISIL as scarecrow to frighten, blackmail and exhaust the regional countries to impose its hegemony, especially in Syria and Iraq.
"It (Turkey) may extend its influence down to Aleppo, and therefore will not provide aid to the Kurds of Kobanî, and will not move any step that might threaten ISIL," Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah concluded..."
"..MS. PSAKI: So as you know, we have for some time had conversations through intermediaries with the PYD. We have engaged over the course of just last weekend directly with the PYD.
QUESTION: First time?
MS. PSAKI: Mm-hmm.
QUESTION: So on this question, they are – they would be eligible, the PYD, for the train and equip program? Or is that --
MS. PSAKI: That was not at all what I was conveying.
QUESTION: No – well, will they --
MS. PSAKI: We have just communicated --
QUESTION: General Allen --
QUESTION: Hold on, hold. So on the direct contact with the PYD, when and where was it, with whom?
MS. PSAKI: I’m not going to get into details of with whom. It was over the weekend and outside of the region.
QUESTION: But General Allen had said and others have said that this train and equip program could start relatively soon because you know – you have a general idea of who you’re vetting and who you want to give these weapons to. So I mean, you said any group could be vetted. Are you specifically looking at these Kurds that are really right now, specifically in Kobani where you seem to be very interested in, are the ones leading the fight against ISIS? Would they be considered – are they currently being considered?
MS. PSAKI: I should have said members of groups can be vetted. But I don’t know if there’s any more you want to say on the vetting.
RADM KIRBY: No. We’re just at the very beginning of this. It would be --
"...The signing of the Iraqi-Soviet friendship Treaty in April 1972 and the nationalisation of the Iraq Petroleum Company( IPC) brought about a change and gave Barzani an other opportunity to resume the fighting. As soon as May 1972, the CIA covertly financed his activities. Therefore, when on March, 11th, 1974, self-rule was granted to the Kurds, he dispelled it. He later acknowledged before Paul Balta, journalist with Le Monde, : " that Israel, the Shah of Iran and the United States had strongly convinced him to refuse the agreement in the belief that the Kurds would launch a guerrilla warfare to weaken Saddam Hussein whose modernisation plan for Iraq was a serious concern for the United States and their great ally Israel" (4). In an interview with the Washington Post, June 22, 1973, he pledged to serve the US policy in the region and if the US aid was "substantial" "to take control of the Kirkuk oilfields and entrust their exploitation to an US company". According to the 1975 Pike Report of the CIA, he was prepared to register Kurdistan as the 51the State of the United States!
The DPK split. Obeidallah Barzani, "sell out" for his father was tempted by the autonomy experience as negotiated and was therefore made minister of State in April 1974. Several members of the DPK politburo set up a rival party in Baghdad and until April 2003, the question of the Kurdistan borders lie dormant.
The Kurdish insurgency held its ground up to the Algiers Agreement signed by Saddam Hussein and the Shah whereby they secretly agreed to stop supporting their respective opposition groups. Within a short period, the Kurdish guerrilla collapsed. Mustapha Barzani died of a cancer in the US where he has taken up residence with his son.
De facto independence
With the outbreak of the First Gulf War (1980-1988) so called Iraq-Iran War, the insurgency was afresh but the repression is horrendous. With the Anfal operation of Ali Hass Al Majidi, a security zone is secured along the borders: villages are destroyed and their population displaced and regrouped. Every encroachment of the Iranian army is met with combat gas by each waring side like at the very controversial battle of Hallabja. All through, the regional government based in Arbil kept on his normal activities.
After the cease-fire signed by Iran on July 18th, 1988, the lull was short-lived. Iraqi divisions entered Koweit in August 1990, and this led to the Second Gulf War and to the setting up in April 1991 of an illegitimate free-zone north of the 36th parallel. Massoud Barzani and Jalal Talabani were free to do as they pleased for the next 13 years.
The unacceptable borders of the Iraqi "Great Kurdistan"
To-day, Barzani’s son, is the President of the Autonomous Region and Jala Talabani , the "President of the Republic". They have for a while kept their squabbling down and have annexed lands outside the Autonomous Region. They do not have to fear the Iraqi army, dismantled by Paul Bremer and they forbid any military force made up of Arabs to enter the region under their grip. Their militias, trained, armed and supported by the Americans and the Israelis are ready to seize by force Kirkuk, the Sindjar and Qanaqin.
The map as submitted to the National Assembly in July 2005 by Mullah Bakhtiyar, member of the PUK (Patriotic Union of Kurdistan) comprises the whole governorate of Nineveh, that is to say Mossul, Tell Afar (5% of Kurds, 75% of Turkmen), the Sindjar (Yezidi) and a large portion of the Djezire plateau, Kirkuk and Tuz Kurmatu –the whole of the Turkmeneli, Turkmen country- then it cuts across Baqubah, moves around Baghdad, fifteen kms north, then down to the south-east to Jassan and Badra on the border with Iran. The mountain range of Hamrin serves as a boundary in the north between Arabs and Kurds. This seems to be not enough for some Kurdish fundamentalists who argue that Salah Eddine (Saladin) being born in Tikrit (south of Hamrin) means that the town was Kurdish.
The drawing of Kurdistan based on "historical and geographical facts" according to Bakhtiyar was approved by the Kurdish Parliament. The Kurdish people, he said, may be willing to discuss privileges or ministerial functions, but the borders of Kurdistan are a line not be crossed. (5). The Kurdish leaders might as well consider that all Kurds living in Iraq outside Kurdistan be under the jurisdiction of the Kurdish State and regarded as privileged citizens as requested by Barzani in his counter-proposal on the autonomous region project.
Jalal Talabani has put forward to the Turkmen an autonomous plan (7)…within the would-be State of Kurdistan but the mistrust is there because lands which would be allotted to them were not mentioned. In the "Great Kurdistan" Project, Yezidis and Shabaks (8) who are neither Kurds nor Arabs in their opinion are being turned into "Kurds". Assyrians are labelled Kurds because they speak the language and the Chaldeans are said to be Arabs, for the opposite reason, as if to mean that the religious schism between them bears ethnical roots.
Barzani and Talabani are asking too much. They should be satisfied with their own territory and embark on long-pending social reforms. Otherwise, they can just expect more riots and violence as in Halabja last March where demonstrators destroyed a shrine.
Who can really believe that Arabs and Turkmen will ratify the policy of fait accompli ? They will not be ripped off their national rights or of their lands. There will be more wars and the American and Israeli 'friends" may not always be prepared to answer the call of the feudal Kurds."
