“All the European countries will kneel before us.” So says an MP for Turkey, of possible responses to condemnation of Turkeys invasion of Syria. Sounds rather biblical doesn’t it. Turkey has it’s sights set on the Kurdish population that has been fighting ISSIS for and with America et. al.
The Kurds have been strong allies since they fought with Americans to subdue Iraq during the ousting of Saddam Hussein. The, Kurds have a strong affection for the U.S. ….at least they have had an affection for the U.S. in the past. The abandonment of the Kurds, long considered terrorists by the Turks, has given a green light to genocide.
The Turks have had journeyman’s training in genocide since they murdered as many as 1.5 million Armenians in 1915. Tayyip Erdogan the present president of Turkey has been revitalizing a fundamentalist Islam in Turkey, with all the repression and oppression of it’s constituents one comes to expect from regressive Muslim countries..
TAYYIP ERDOGAN, PRESIDENT OF TURKEY IS INVADING SYRIA
Erdogan is threatening to release 3.6 million migrants on Europe should he feel the need. This is a rather odd threat. I have never heard anyone threaten another country with an attack of homeless people?
The fact still remains Erdogan was going to invade Syria. There was nothing we could do to stop it. The Kurds will be given the same treatment that Turkey would afford any group of terrorists. They will be killed, tortured and maltreated in countless ways. And unless we want to start a conventional war with Turkey, there is nothing we can do to stop the carnage. But I do hope we destroy Turkeys economy as a response to their nasty behavior.
So you can’t get any real good and juicy shots of the fire and explosions. It is a social media speedway these days and you gotta’ get the news out an hour ago or some Jackhammerjohn will jump the gun and beat other news tributaries by
‘that much’. (Make a pincer gesture with your thumb and index finger)
So if you can’t dredge a real photo of the fighting fast enough, just dig up another pik of some random fire and brimstone and slap a caption under a exploding night-time fire pyre for dramatic affect. The Knob Creek Gun Range, in West Point, Kentucky supplied the fiery graphics. Professional ethics were supplied by The National Enquirer. Or Somebody that told us they were from the Inquirer.
It has become so tragically familiar, that reality is a disposable commodity. Like the trouth that gets you what you want, A lie that gets you what you want has just the same moral value as any random act that benefits the actor. Thus the truth itself dies as a value in the culture. Without the truth there is no culture.
STRANGE, BUT A WINGED CREATURE APPEARS TO BE COMING IN FOR A LANDING IN A MESSY NEST OF FLAMES……………….
It seems another grown-up, Tulsi Gabbard has entered the pre-school play room. She appears to have her feet planted firmly on terra firma, and her head screwed on snugly. Therefore, she will be treated as all parental interlopers and be shunned for fear that she will wake them from their dream world of free everything from cradle to grave. Her first comment on her treatment at the hands of her “fellow” democrats was a couple of weeks ago, when she commented that her treatment at the hands of her own party, was oozing with vitriol she thought would be reserved for Republican targets. She was heard to say that they treated her with more hostility and disrespect than her Republican opponents. KLIKDAPIK below for more. It seems the mob can’t tell the difference between a debate and an episode of COPS!. All that was missing was the shirtless fistfight, torn “wife beaters” cheap aluminum and plastic lawn furniture, beer getting sloshed on wife and kids in your front yard. Your neighbor, who is also shirtless and to your dismay, Jimmie Bob from the trailer next door still has the far end of your aluminum yard lounger and your lawn mower is still in his garage. Much to your hillbilly shame, Jimmie has larger boobs than your ol’ lady…….but smaller than your own!.
BELOW ARE PICTURED HER OPPONANTS, “THE MOB”. IN THE PRIMARY DEBATES, THEY DO NOT REPRESENT A GROUP OF COMRADS, EACH STRIVING TO WIN THEIR PARTIES NOMINATION, FOR AMERICA AND THEIR CONSTITUENTS. IN FACT, WHAT MS. GABBARD HAS DISCOVERED IS A MOB OF NARCISISTS FIGHTING FOR THEIR OWN AGRANDIZEMENT, WITH NO CONCERN OVER WHOM THEY WILL TROD IN GRABBING THEIR PIECE OF POWER.
DONT WASTE A CLICK HERE, NO LINK JUST A LINGERING STINK. THE ODER OF THE CONSTITUTION DECAYING!
It is an Uphill Battle for the Kurds. Ever loyal allies, recently abandoned, to be killed by insurgent Turkish armies, are pleading for some help in staving off the surprise attack Trump helped in setting up with Turkey. When I say that we helped I don’t imply a deliberate compliance with the Turks. The surprise move, with most of Trumps military advisers uninformed of the move before it was made could not have been predicted by the Kurds. Essentialy his pull out took the Kurds by surprise. They were, in the words of a westerner,dry-gulched by the move and left to be ethnically cleansed from the Earth. KLIKDAPIK for more.
I must smile at the humanity we all share. Some would have us believe that they are above all things corporeal, somehow lifted above the fray by cute little cherubs with magic ribbons to cradle our ascent into the ethers of heaven. Somewhere in the woods near Berlin, an encampment of eco-warriors were caught with there generator around their ankles. Or rather the generator was hidden under a pile of pallets. KLIKDAPIK for more!
I wonder if it might have had something to do with smartphone recharging?
Bibi Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel, is pledging assistance to the Kurds in their fight against the Turkish forces that have entered northern Syria with the avowed purpose of eradicating them. “Israel is prepared to extend humanitarian assistance to the Gallant Kurdish people.” states Netanyahu. His offer is magnanimous beyond measure in that the Kurds are Muslim. This decision may seem odd if judged through purely partisan values that dictate automatic opposition to the followers of Islam. But honor is the gauge that Bibi is using to dictate his intensions and actions. Sometimes, in order too act with honor, one must risk all and walk the razors edge.
Honor is the vital link in the chain that binds a man to his self respect. Honor is the most vital link in the chain that binds the word of a man to another man and ultimately, to the world. The abandonment of the our erstwhile friends, the Kurds, is an insult to honor.
For Netanyahu the question will always remain…. What will it take for America to abandon Israel? Honor cannot be compromised, it must be whole or nothing at all. Honor demands a heavy price sometimes. How far is America willing to go in helping it’s friends. When will we tell Israel “Well sorry but the price is too high. and the benefit to America too low , so sorry, you’re on your own!” Discussion and debate, reasons and excuses, all are just breath without honor. So Bibi, I have seen the metal of your character, and know you are a man of honor.
Our own POTUS I am not so sure of.
President Trump announced that we are abandoning our Kurdish allies to almost certain death as we withdraw our military from Syria. Kurds, in a generational conflict with the Turks have been instrumental in our victory over the forces of ISSIS. The Kurds have been long term friends of the U.S. and have always “had our backs” in conflicts in the area. They were quite helpful in the Iraq war, and have been quite vocal about their fondness for all things American in a region where some countries lead every Friday prayer session with “Death to America! The Great Satan!”
ISSIS FIGHTERS, HERE PICTURED HELD CAPTIVE WITH KURDS AS THEIR GUARDS, WILL BE RELEASED UNDOUBTEDLY, UPON THE TURKISH INVASION OF NORTHERN SYRIA
The power vacuums that are left when the relatively small American force goes, and hell will have it’s way. There will not even be a set of eyes set upon their back as they do their dirty work of disposing of the Kurds. That is all. it only leaves the Russians as the big dog in the area, yes the vacuum will be our blindness. Without emersion in the broiling brawl of the middle east we are nothing more than a rubes, cooing at a Pollack splatter. Either we are on the outside guessing who is shipping the dirty bomb into New York Harbor, or we know who signs off on it and what he had for breakfast. We will be giving card blanch to the Iranians as they consolidate power with Abbas and the Russians and Israel burns in the bargain.
Trump you are fucking up. Big time. I know my blog is but a little voice in the wilderness, but I wish you would hear me. Think this through! Please! It is not to late to reposition troops to take care of the Kurds. YOU just can’t do your friends this way………YOU CAN’T…………YOUR AN AMERICAN ………….DO THE RIGHT THNG!!!!!!
It isn’t that you did it. It’s HOW you did it. Becoming the hall moni8to for the middle east has been our burden for a few decades longerthan it should have been. Our NATO pardtner are reluctant to become involved and it seems the the way of the feud is the way of life in the middle east.
Pulling our troops out of Syria is one thing. How we do it makes all the difference however. With no preparation, psychological or logistical. We turned a withdrawal into a rout. Many who shouldn’t will die and it is our fault. The abandonment of the Kurds is a heartbreaking thing to do to the Kurds who will now get to see the living side of hell as they and their wives, sons and daughters are left to the mercy of Edegans troops.
Other than the pullout in Iraq by Obama, have we seen a bug-out of this desperate dimension. Our reputation as a force for good in the world and as partners who can be relied upon is nil. It is just not American.
Our “allies” have something to worry about. The Kurds fought with us during the Iraqi debacle under Bush. They fought shoulder to shoulder in fighting ISSIS. Now that we have defeated the attempts of ISSIS to establish a lasting Caliphate……we abandon the Kurds to be massacred by the Turks. KLIKDAPIK for more
