Rape of Rohingya Women in Apartheid Burma Continues Unabated


     From Burma Task Force USA Newsletter


"She was only 11 years old"

Imagine an 11-year old. May be your daughter, your sister, or imagine you are 11 years old.

Then read about this 11-year old Rohingya Muslim girl’s story as told to Ilona Alexander of the United Nations.

“Her father went into hiding from the military and took her two older sisters with him so that they would be safe. He left the girl at home with her mother and two little brothers because he thought the military wouldn’t hurt children. The military came back to their house twice. The first time, the military came and removed her clothing and kicked her. After the clothing was removed and the girl was beaten, the military suddenly left. The next day they returned with seven soldiers and removed the mother from the house. The soldiers locked themselves in a room with the girl and gang raped her. 
The girl told me that she doesn’t even know how many of them raped her because she fell unconscious at times and awoke bleeding and injured after.”

More than half of Rohingya refugee women who were interviewed reported being raped. The actual numbers are higher. Think of how many nameless 11 year olds are silently living with this trauma. No access to health and psychological care. Their plight doesn’t end there, they are still vulnerable to exploitation in the refugee camps, where 80% of refugees are women and children.

Please pray for them tonight.

When you pray think of yourself, your sister, your daughter and then beg God for protection of these victims of rape.  Please make a special du’a that God protect, save and heal them.


Historical breakthrough but not a noble one

      Talking of strange bedfellows, there we go again

It's the first visit by an Iranian military chief to Turkey since 1979.  One of their top agendas is to focus on increasing "information exchange in the field of counter-terrorism."   Cooperating on counter-terrorism with Erdogan is like a fire-crew fighting to douse a wildfire, seeking assistance from the arsonist who lit it.

Ties between Iran and AKP's Turkey went as far as trade and commerce.  It's now extended to military agreements.   More than a little surprising, the visit also threatened the near-future visit of Erdogan to Tehran for discussions on all spheres of geopolitical issues.  Even a buffoon like the King of Morocco refused to meet Erdogan feigning illness when the Turkish leader visited Rabat couple of years ago.

Soon after Donald Trump took office, the Turkish President hurriedly renounced Daesh (ISIL) after years of deadly collaboration.   However, both Trump and Turkey are still counting on Nusra Front and its votaries to continue the war in Syria.   How can Iran prefer not to consider that?

Vulnerability often leads to impetuousness.   Qatar's showdown (of sorts) with the rest of the gulf states is another trigger, stirring emotions.  Qatar supposedly sacrificed its traditional relations with the kings and sheikhs for its sudden sympathy for Iran. Though Tayyip Erdogan has been a longtime partner of Saudi Arabia and its AlQaeda mercenaries, he is basically in the Brotherhood block.   Since July 2016 his bond with MB has deepened after a horde of MB men converged in Istanbul to join AKP supporters to quell the coup.  Thus, between the Sauds and the Qataris, Erdogan has chosen the Qataris who are in cahoots with MB.   Furthermore, both Qatar and Turkey are presently at odds with the adversaries of Iran:  Political romeo Qatar, has been ostracized by the Kingdom for falling in love with Iran and Tayyip Erodgan has subtly been deemed a pariah by the White House.   Joining all the dots from start to finish, Iran is trying to convince her conscience that after all, poor Tayyip may not be that bad a guy.

At the root of the Qatari-Turkish theatrics which is melting Iran's heart is the nostalgia of Muslim Brotherhood of the late 1970s when it purportedly backed the Iranian revolution .. without realistically reviewing the facts that in the past 39 years MB has changed drastically .. evolving from a reputable welfare foundation into a hardline salafist-sectarian cult barely different from AlQaeda.  Still nurturing that 4-decade-old fantasy, the Iranian media in 2013 harshly criticized the ouster of Mohamed Morsi, the man who boasted of his MB marauders toppling Bashar al-Assad and "stomping" his body .. the man whose cheerleaders threw shoes at Mahmoud Ahmedinejad during his visit to Al-Azhar University .. the man whose adherents brutally murdered and dragged into the streets the bodies of an Egyptian Shiia cleric and his three companions from a Shiite Mosque.  It was the first such incident in Egypt's Islamic history where sectarian violence is unknown as it was in Syria prior to 2011. 

Though not a good enough reason, the upcoming Kurdish referendum in Iraq is another issue bringing Iran and Turkey closer.  Referendum for independence of Iraqi Kurdistan was initially planned for mid 2014 but had to be postponed after ISIL occupied northern Iraq.  After the liberation of Mosul last July, the referendum has been re-scheduled for September 25, 2017.   Both, the Iranian military chief and Turkish president are against it, fearing it could deepen the unrest in Iraq and within their own countries .. their prime concern being their own countries.   Like Ankara, Tehran's relations with Iranian Kurds hasn't been trouble-free.

It's unfortunate that such a visit had to take place in the midst of Turkey's ongoing remorseless foreign policy largely responsible for decimating a fifth of Syria's population.   Iran's needless and frantic eagerness seeking friends among known enemies spells nothing except insensitivity and indignity.

Jordan to resume ties with Syria? How media speculation distorts reality.

                                      The bejeweled concubine
                                      Image taken from: RadioFree Europe

Nasib Border Crossing, a crucial gateway between Syria and Jordan managed by the Syrian Army, was captured by Al-Nusra in April 2015. Recently it was retaken by the Syrian Army. For purposes of self-interest, Jordanian military is reportedly negotiating with Syria (via Russia) the possibility of the Syrian Army managing Nasib Border again, as before.

Arab news & opinion website, Rai-al-Youm, has misinterpreted this story as Jordan and Syria establishing regular ties and cooperation. According to Rai-al-Youm, Jordan currently views the "Syrian case handed to Russia" by the U.S. which has stopped assisting terrorists "and hence, Amman is changing its policies on Syria." Laughable! Makes one wonder how professional news sites can spew such unprofessional rubbish. There are at least eleven U.S. bases across Syria and it's impossible Jordan wouldn't know that. In fact, a U.S. military convoy arrived in south Hasaka on August 15 to assist al-Nusra Front in Deir Ezzor. With ISIL on the verge of defeat, al-Nusra is getting stronger.  Dozens of smaller AQ groups – many of them with new titles never heard of before – are joining it to prevent the Syrian Army advancing to Homs, Deir Ezzor and Raqaa. Only three days ago, al-Nusra announced it was opening a second terrorist training camp in southern Syria. As recently as last June, Jordan was considering opening a front in southern Syria for military offensive to appease Donald Trump.

Rai-al-Youm is attempting to downplay the fact that the British appointed puppet kings of Jordan do not have the entitlement to make independent foreign policy decisions. Abdullah is firmly embedded in the US/UK/Saudi/Israeli camp. Without lifelong economic and military assistance from his bosses, his country would look no different from Afghanistan or Mali. Since the start of the Syrian war, Jordan has been an important venue for training tribal salafist rebels by CIA officials based in Amman. With Salafism growing in Jordan, Abdullah's position as a nincompoop, oafish lackey of Riyadh is appreciated by various segments of the Jordanian public .. though just as many hate him and his family for drowning the country in a sea of corruption.

Jordan is eager to keep radicals out of its borders, yet for six years it has been loyally following orders supporting the proxy war in Syria led by those very radicals. Neither does Abdullah have the grit nor the desire to dissuade his ally, Benyamin Nethanyahu, from helping Nusra Front fighters in the makeshift hospitals of occupied Golan Heights.

In 2011 Abdullah was loud as ever calling for Assad to step down. An apt response to this half British son of the late top CIA agent of the Middle-East came from Egyptian journalist, Hamdi Qandil: "You learn Arabic before telling an Arab president, a nationalist and resistance leader like Bashar al-Assad to step down."

Stealth Occupation Of Syria As Sponsors Join The Proxies

        Image Al-Masdar News

To briefly describe the present illegal US occupation of Syria, there are altogether up to 9 US bases across the country .. most important ones in Hasaka, Tal Abad and Tanf. These bases are cleverly placed to serve asbuffer zones preventing the Syrian Army from advancing to strategic points it needs to access in the course of its battlefield operations against foreign invaders.

The goal of the hegemons: Partitioning Syria establishing an independent Kurdistan, total protection of Israeli occupied Golan Heights in western Syria and AlQaeda to be left intact inside Syria.

Despite Russian support for the Syrian government in fighting AlQaeda, an independent Kurdistan is not Putin's problem.  As long as the Syrian government doesn't jeopardize Russian interests and Putin is guaranteed AlQaeda won't reach the borders of Russia, the Russian leader wouldn't mind watching Assad preside over a broken, fragmented Syria. Having said that, the illegal presence of US bases in Syria isn't causing too many sleepless nights for Mr. Putin.

Marauders of the New World are moving precisely on the same path outlined by the Obama regime. The delay and silence in executing Kerry's "plan B" by Trump regime may give the impression of the picture being a bit different on the ground. That's only a perceptual deception. Orders coming from the Deep State have no bearing on who might be its performer at the Oval Office. The strategy is, even if Assad remains, he must be left with a rump portion, beleaguered, isolated and powerless .. the bare remnants of sovereignty wiped out. It was straight from the horse's mouth when a senior commander of Kurdish backed SDF, one of Pentagon's trusted proxies, stated "The US is setting up its military bases in the territories that were liberated from Daesh by our fighters during the fight against terrorism." Replacing one gang of perverts with another is NO reason to rejoice, if only the international community knew.

The hegemons haven't yet finished working on the exploit in Syria and they have begun contemplating on starting another. Three days ago, James Mattis stated to the media that relations between Iran and US cannot improve unless there's a regime change in Iran. Recall the expression "regime change?" It began its journey from Iraq to Libya to Syria .. and now peering into Iran.

Never in world history has the violation of the rule of law (be it international or national) been displayed in such staggering proportions!

“You can’t get a more obvious violation of international law than to actually move in and set up a military base in a sovereign country that has never taken any offensive action towards our country.” ~ Senator Richard Black

What might be the endgame for the knights of the "moderate" FSA and some ethnic groups:

If Syria is partitioned by the neocon outlaws and their double-dealing serfs, the very small band of indigenous Syrian salafists (sprouting from the Syrian branch of MB) commonly dubbed as "moderates" of the so-called FSA will be in for some rude awakening.  It won't be too different for those Assyrian, Armenian, Turkmen and Circassian fighters of the soi-disant SDF now cavorting with militias of the US forces.  By the way, "FSA" has recently been renamed "NSA" (from Free Syrian Army to New Syrian Army) by their US trainers.

Not unknown to anyone, the Syrians of "FSA" turned "NSA" have been too tiny a minority to topple the government so the need arose for its western sponsors to periodically recruit, train and arm thousands of foreign terrorist fighters within the AlQaeda network for the dirty mission to Syria.  The goal of FSA/NSA was to  establish their own style of radical government in Syria somewhat resembling the ousted Morsi regime in Egypt.   Though they didn't want foreign fighters to make themselves permanently cozy inside Syria, there was no way of avoiding it.  Without AlQaeda the "moderates" could do nothing.  Whichever AlQaeda faction they joined, their job description included sweeping the floors of occupied AlQaeda barracks, brewing tea and arranging prostitutes for the heathen-takfiri invaders.  These "moderates" invariably ended up becoming small-fry backseaters with zero authority to make decisions on military operations nor were they allowed to retain the arms cache coming from the West;  their political wing, Syrian National Council (SNC), based in Turkey persistently made a clown of itself on the international stage bragging over transition to "democracy."

Simple as it was, these  brainless nincompoops couldn't visualize they had been aiming their guns at their own foot, paving the way for intruders and trolls in exchange for acquiring a non-entity status for themselves.   If Syrian Kurds are given independence by the 'gracious' Washington DC, the rest of Syria with an abundance of AlQaeda factions will be a hub for anarchists similar to the jungles where wild beasts have their own territorial demarcations with recurrent deadly brawls.  The marginalized minorities consisting of "FSA/NSA moderates,"  Assyrians, Turkmen, Armenians and Circassians waiting for a prosperous future in the absence of Bashar al-Assad, will at best, get jobs at daily wages to scrub the toilet bowls and clean-up the morning crap of their AlQaeda or Kurdish bosses.

Disharmony Within The Takfiri Mafia : Qatar Kicked Out

                Image source:  Press TV News

Inside the Saud dominated Arabian Peninsula, survival is for the fittest.   Observers say it started after Trump's recent visit to Saudi Arabia .... the sword dance and signing of $110-billion arms deal ... Qatar got a bit jealous and the Qatari ruler blew a raspberry at Riyadh and Washington.   Criticism is one thing that has a severe allergic reaction on the Sauds.   Qatar is banished and stamped a pariah with the accusation of "supporting terrorism" - a vivid portrayal of 'pot calling the kettle black.' According to Palestinian journalist, Abdel Bari Atwan, whose readings are accurate more often than not, this could be a prelude to a military invasion in Qatar.   With 10,000 marines stationed there, Washington is scratching its head.   Looks like the approach of a new era when Wahabis will be going to war with each other.   Infighting, wrangling and cranky shit-fits arising from greed and ambition have long been inherent weaknesses within Takfiris.   Saudi Arabia and UAE are already seriously at odds over Yemen.

Not sure how far this is correct;  Qatar reportedly accused US and KSA of trying to destabilize Iran.   Anger of the House of Saud was already close to boiling point because of the Qatari Emir's support for Palestinian Resistance Movement (Hamas). The comment on Iran made the fury boil over completely.  

The story has yet another aspect.  Ostracizing Qatar seems to have come at a very convenient moment.  Recent terror attacks in London and Manchester were carried out by AlQaeda - Daesh and LIFG, respectively.  Theresa May and her predecessor are silently nursing their guilt (as you sow, so shall you reap).   Trump grabbed the incidents as an excuse to justify and re-implement Muslim travel ban in the US.   It was only the British opposition leader who nailed it with the right reaction.   Quoting Jeremy Corbyn, "We do need to have some difficult conversations starting with Saudi Arabia and other Persian Gulf states that have funded and fueled extremist ideology." That must have rattled the Kingdom's fragile ego.   Deciding to be rigidly on the defensive, it hurriedly ganged up with UAE and Bahrain taking some preemptive steps to play the angels of peace and dump the Qataris as the fall guys.

By the way, Saudi Arabia and Qatar have a history of showdowns.  The last one was in 2014, and it started from the early 1900s.

India seeing itself a 'victim' like Syria: Never heard of a more absurd analogy!

               Image source and interview:  dnaindia

Indian channel WION's real motive for interviewing Bashar al-Assad.

India's WION is comparing AlQaeda's terrorism in Syria with the Kashmiri Movement for Independence in India, censoring every bit of truth that that Kashmiris are indigenous people of Kashmir (not proxies), that Kashmir is an overwhelmingly Muslim majority province, an occupied land, demanding independence for almost 7 decades. Plebeiscite denied. Referendum denied. Not to mention Modi government's (the hindu AlQaeda) deadly religious fanaticism / terror against Muslim and Christian minorities of India.

Aware of Bashar al-Assad's isolation - that a drowning man would clutch at anything for support and survival - WION tries to cash in by coercing the promotion of Syria-India relations. Has India ever been up to anything other than dishonesty, guile and manipulation of the helpless? And now it's also trying to act the victim by placing itself at par with Syria. Moreover, the world knows that India is on the best of terms with the US and all its allies. Shame on the shameless, the greedy!

Everyone knows that one of the chief causes of this war in Syria is expansion of Zionist hegemony.  No secret at all that Israel supports Syria's invaders.  Also no secret how hard Benjamin Netanyahu's Indian counterpart is working to strengthen India's ties with Israel from 2015 until the present.

Quoting Times of Israel:
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his Indian counterpart, Narendra Modi, sat kiddy-corner in armchairs at this week’s international climate summit near Paris, talking and laughing. “We have the best of relations, and they can be made even better,” Netanyahu told Modi at the meeting. To which Modi responded, “I am happy that often we can talk easily on telephone, we can discuss everything.” 

         Image source:  Times of Israel  (link above)

Also, Israeli Agriculture Minister Yair Shamir, was warmly welcomed when he visited India for 'Gujrat global summit' (whatever that was).  Middle-East Eye.

These are just a couple of examples.  Hobnobbing between the 2  terror states continues undiminished.

The world also knows that the wahabi Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has its own reasons to finish Syria and is just as adamant as Israel.  Last year (2016) when the war was at its height, Indian PM was conferred the highest civilian award by Salman bin Saud in Riyadh, one of Syria's staunchest enemies.  Source Indian Express.

Radical and corrupt politicians and leaders in the category of criminals, crooks and rapists are having a heyday using Syria as a pawn to grab international attention for themselves, each one trying to play either a victim or a friend of humanity for the promotion of national or personal interest.

And oh!  Occupied Kashmir ..

That man in the first image above, sitting on the right interviewing the President, knows darn well that occupied Kashmir is the 'Palestine' of South Asia.  Unfortunately the world knows nothing because all NWO governments are allies of India ... for the same reason the ghastly genocide of the minority Rohigyas in Burma has been given no coverage.   The international community knows of Turkey blocking more than 20 social media sites on the internet.  But unfortunately the world doesn't know that Turkey isn't alone in making such a decision. 

India has blocked all social media sites in occupied Kashmir including Facebook, Twitter and Whatsapp, blocking freedom of speech of hundreds of thousands of young Kashmiris.  The agitation has lately led to the death of dozens of civilians by occupying Indian forces who are permanently stationed there, like the IDF in occupied West Bank.  In fact, occupied Kashmir is known to the world's most heavily militarized region.  More than half million Indian soldiers are indefinitely deployed to stop protesters.

Kashmiri youth are trying to dodge the ban on social media by launching their local version of Facebook named "KashBook."  But seems they won't get too far before it's banned as well.  This country sings the tune of the "world's largest democracy" and then claims to be a "victim" of terrorism like Syria.  

Will gross impropriety ever have any limits?

Yemen: Rift between two US allies - Saudi Arabia and Emirates

This image from Al-Jazeera- May 13, 2017 shows supporters of Southern Movement in Aden rallying behind Aden's former governor, Aidarous al-Zubaidi, recently dismissed by Saudi backed Rabo Mansur Hadi.  It confirms that the Southern Movement has broken ranks with Hadi's Government.

UAE isn't getting along well with Saudi backed Rabo Mansur Hadi, to the extent that he recently addressed UAE as an "occupation power."   Hadi's inner circle is divided into pro-Saudi and pro-UAE, former accusing the latter of buying weapons to target Hadi's government.   

UAE is disgruntled.  As a member of the coalition, it has suffered more casualties than expected during the last two years of the war in Yemen and achieved nothing in return.  This includes the death of Sheikh Rashid, son of the ruler of Dubai, who was
killed in the Yemeni revolutionary forces' Katyusha attack in Ma'rib province of Yemen.   The truth was covered up by an absurd story that the healthy 33-year-old playboy died of a sudden "heart attack."  The cover-up was necessary because the people of UAE were never enthusiastic about this war.

 Al-Zubaidi, Governor of Aden appointed by Hadi, was kicked out on May 10 for lining up with UAE.   He turned separatist and declared Aden autonomous, much to the pleasure of the Southern Movement.  This Movement, led by Yemeni Sunnis for an independent South Yemen, has been stirring up since several years prior to the war.  When the war began, the Southern Movement allied itself with Hadi presuming that if Ansarullah (Houthi) took over Yemen, it wouldn't allow South Yemen to secede.  But two years on, after continuous bombings by the Saudi coalition flattening eighty percent of the country's infrastructure, matters have unfolded differently.  Ansarullah isn't interested in taking all of Yemen.  They are interested in an independent Northern Yemen where they are predominant.  That suits  Southern Movement fine.   But Saudi Arabia agrees with neither.  It wants the entire country under the rule of a solid Saudi-US-UK-backed puppet and at present Rabo Mansur Hadi is their guy.

Riyadh is befuddled, as it always is in times of trouble.  Apart from the anxious shit-fits, House of Saud doesn't have a clue how handle its fallout with UAE.  Strait of Bab el-Mandab which is located close to the port of Aden is a strategic waterway for international maritime traffic. The presence of a pro-UAE faction based in Aden controlling Bab el-Mandab would be of great advantage to the economy of UAE but a disaster for the Saudis which they won't tolerate.

In addition to the profound humanitarian crisis, the situation has exacerbated well beyond a sectarian war.

Horrific AlQaeda bombing: Residents of twin villages of Fuaa and Kefraya

SYRIA, on April 15. 
Silence of Western governments & media.

Al-Nusra Front and ISIL carried out a joint attack bombing a civilian bus near Fuaa and Kefraya that killed 126 including at least 80 children.  This act of deadly terror was committed in violation to a negotiated agreement.

          From  Twitter  page

Release of 3,000 hostages of twin villages of Fuaa and Kefraya, supporters of Syrian government, held by Al-Nusra and ISIL for months under brutal conditions was negotiated by the Syrian Government in exchange for 200 terrorists (Western media calls "fighters") captured in the towns of Madaya and Zabadani liberated by Syrian forces and Hezbollah.  Contrary to laughable propaganda, residents of the summer resort towns of Madaya and Zabadani never supported a single infiltrating terrorist of  ISIL nor Al-Nusra.

              From CBC News

The hair-raising inhumanity shown by the two AlQaeda groups stands unique.  They lured hungry children with treats before exploding the bomb for maximum death toll of minors.  Reported by CBC: A little injured girl who lost all her siblings spoke to Al-Manar TV from her hospital bed mentioning that a man in a car came up to them, inviting them to eat potato chips.  The children rushed and gathered for the treat;  minutes later the fierce blast shred most of those little angels to pieces.  Unspeakable!!   For sick criminals like these, even the harshest punishment would seem lenient.  Instead, NO western news outlet nor government has expressed a word of sympathy for the victims nor denounced the terrorists.   Where are the "heartbroken" tears of the Trump family?   Where are the flying tomahawk missiles?

Height of callousness and mean spirited bias:
Because the deal involves the evacuation of a large number of government supporters, USA and its allies are not helping the evacuation and neither is the United Nations getting involved.

Conclusion: The most important message:
Fact check:
Press TV
First report, death toll has risen since.

CBC News
Note: This is msm.  Therefore not a single condemnation nor the use of the word "terrorist."  Even the image of a masked, armed terrorist is referred to as "rebel fighter."  As long as you're a friend of the neocon world you could be the most spine-chilling dream beast, you would be viewed as a friend of humanity.  Alas this planet!

Deir Ezzor (Eastern Syria) Poison Gas Leak- April 13, 2017

Will the Western media handle this embarrassment with silence OR will President Assad be framed again? 

When US bombs fell on a chemical weapons depot of ISIL in Deir Ezzor, it caused leakage of poison gas killing scores of civilians mostly children.  They were suffocated by the toxic substances after a huge white and yellow mushroom cloud spread in the atmosphere.    It has now been confirmed and proven irrefutably that both AlQaeda sub-groups - Daesh and al-Nusra - are in possession of chemical arsenal.   Exact number of deaths is not yet known.  The mainstream media isn't mentioning a word, neither the death toll nor the nature of poison gas / gases released.  

The interesting question: Who gave ISIL this stockpile of poison gas?  Israel, Turkey, Saudi Arabia or did US bomb some of its own consignments it had been periodically sending throughout Obama's presidency? 

Briefly recapping the Idlib incident ten days earlier, April 3.

On April 6, one of the US terrorist warships loitering the Mediterranean launched an attack at the Syrian military base, al-Shayrat, showering more than 50 tomahawk missiles and killing 10.  Here are the circumstances that led to this act of US terrorism preceded by Al-Nusra's chemical gas terrorist attack in Idlib three days earlier, dumped on Assad. 

Al-Nusra & affiliates have a missile factory in Khan Sheikhun.   These rudimentary missiles were constantly used for attacking government installations and civilian neighborhoods in government controlled areas of Syria. The Syrian air force using Russian war planes struck Khan Sheikhun missile warehouse a couple of days prior to the incident.  It was later surmised that Al-Nusra's cache of chemical arsenal was probably also stored at Khan Sheikhun causing the release of some chemical gases in Idlib governorate including the villages of Majdal and Khattab.   The US did precisely that in Deir Ezzor on April 13 when it targeted, what might have been a ISIL den, not knowing that their poison gas warehouse lay just there.  Thus the silence of the mainstream media.

Donald Trump's impulsive decision that recently led to the bombing of Syria's al-Shayrat military base was reportedly prompted because his daughter was heartbroken at the images of civilians gassed to death in Idlib.  Referring to that story, writes Veteran's Today:  "Without a video done by the White Helmets distributed by Qatar’s intelligence agency and their al Jazeera organization, the cheerleaders of ISIS, Ivanka Trump is silent though hundreds lie dead, most of them children.  Without White Helmets to murder the babies on camera, jabbing them with cardiac needles and digging around until their hearts are torn to shreds and their eyes go dim, the satanic witch queen, Ivanka, will not be ordering military retaliation and pushing for Armageddon…"  - Gordon Duff.

Syrian sources stated "the US-led coalition struck an ISIS depot storing chemical weapons in Deir ez-Zor on Wednesday, poisoning and killing several hundred people, including civilians.  This confirms that Daesh and al-Nusra terrorists possess chemical weapons and are capable of using, obtaining and transporting it"  ZeroHedge  

Russia's Sputnik News reported - "the Syrian military said that this fact proves that terrorists possess chemical weapons."  Also see ZeroHedge

Idlib April 2017 Gas Attack Has Fingerprints of False Flag.

Another desperate attempt to nail the Syrian Government.

                     Source World Affairs Blog.

As expected, White Helmets are showing off their presence handling the sick and dead without protective gloves despite claims of sarin attack. "This is dangerous, unprofessional and possibly suicidal" writes World Affairs Blog, " since the chemicals on the victims’ skin would seep through the handler’s skin and hurt/kill the handler as well."

A phony doctor by the name of Shuja-ul-Islam frantically tweets that the hospital where he works is getting filled with "sarin" victims. He's offering to send videos and appealing to dispel doubts. Would a genuine doctor have time to tweet and make videos for the social media in a situation such as this?

World's top murderer, Benyamin Netanyahu, is screaming and belching from TelAviv condemning the Syrian Government.

What does the Idlib incident remind you of? Yes, starkly reminiscent of Ghouta chemical attack by Al-Nusra in August 2013 that nearly resulted in direct NATO intervention in Syria .. pre-planned of course. The plan at present is not only to disrupt the upcoming peace negotiation but it's an act of sheer desperation by terrorist forces after America's decision not to focus on toppling Assad. Quoting Sott Net "Shortly after the incident in Idlib, a suspiciously well timed piece from the White Helmets founder, falsely claiming to be the head of Syrian Civil Defence, was published in Britain's Guardian newspaper, urging EU leaders not to reach any kind of deal with the legitimate government of Syria during tomorrow's peace talks in Brussels."  

Most victims were from the villages of Majdal and Khattab. As mentioned by AMN News, AlQaeda kidnapped 250 people from these two villages last week. These villagers were viewed as pro-government ... an then AlQaeda gassed them to frame the Syrian Government.

Genocide in Yemen: 2nd Anniversary

             Tehran Times

Take a look at THIS twitter link on the second anniversary of the mayhem in Yemen by foreign powers.  Some dumbo is asking, quote:  "Houthis n their million followers agree for UN monitored referendum to decide the future of Yemen?"   This weird sectarianist is implying that the war is all about referendum .. as if the neighboring Kingdom is sooo democratic that it won't allow anyone in the region to disregard the will of the people and the moment Ansarullah agrees to a referendum in Yemen, the Saudi invasion will end.  It's too difficult or too embarrassing for these folks to comprehend that if Ansarullah says "yes" to a referendum, the Saudis will be the first ones to freak out and call for an emergency session in Washington with another $2b worth of bombs sent at the behest of the Oval Office. 

The anti Ansarullah crowd has been trying it's best of misconstrue facts by portraying Ansarullah as a "typical Hezbollah-Iran linked group" that's cashing in on the sentiments of its supporters by demonizing USA and Israel. The brainless slander circulating around is that Houthis are linked to the corrupt Abdullah al-Saleh who was once linked to AlQaeda.  In the first place,  Abdullah Saleh (despite his unsatisfactory rule of 32 years) never had links with AQ.   Let's come back to our senses for the sake of Allah Almighty!   Saleh is a Zaidi Shiia,  AlQaeda is staunchly Salafist.   Another disgusting nonsense claims that the Houthis took control of the north with the help of Ali Abdullah Saleh.   The fact is that despite Abdullah Saleh being a Zaidi Shiia, the Houthis have fought and struggled against his government whom they persistently perceived as corrupt and incompetent since 2004.   Houthis never reconciled with Saleh, though their opposition to Saleh may have turned quieter .. NOT because they ever supported him .. because since 2014 the Houthis had a much stronger and more destructive opposition to tackle consisting of foreign proxy powers adamant to quell -- what they feared -- an Iran-like ideology sprouting in Yemen.   The anti Ansarullah crowd is intentionally silent over the fact that Ansarullah has lots of local-political agenda, namely ending economic under-development, political marginalization in Yemen and corruption at governmental level.  Ansarullah has voiced for autonomy in areas where they are predominant; they aren't hankering after autonomy in all of Yemen.  Therefor even if the Hirak Movement wins the referendum for secession of south Yemen, it carries no threats for Ansarullah.  

Funny why this Salafist cult has never bothered to clarify how the act of Saudi preemptive bombing & ground invasion of Yemen fits into their own hyperbole, let alone the actual situation.  These are the same people who have been ceaselessly barking that "Iran's interference to help Houthis is designed to spread Shiia influence in the region." But their devious silence over the neighboring Kingdom's physical presence in Yemen and non-stop bombing leading to war crimes and genocide is even more deafening than their rabid barks!

Wrap up for dummies:
After Abdullah al-Saleh was wounded in an attack in September 2011, Hadi became the acting President.  He was then made the president for a two-year transitional period on February 21, 2012 in an "election" in which he was the only candidate. In January 2014 his mandate was extended for another year but he continued to be in power with no signs of stepping down.   In January 2015, Ansarullah revolutionists seized the presidential palace; Hadi resigned and was put under house arrest.  A month later he escaped to Aden (his hometown) in south Yemen, authorized himself to annul his resignation renouncing Ansarullah uprising as "unconstitutional."  Back in Sanaa, north Yemen, Ansarullah established a Supreme Revolutionary Committee to form a government replacing Hadi and his cabinet that would serve as Yemen's interim authority.  On March 25, 2015 Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi fled Aden to Saudi Arabia.   On March 26, 2015, Saudi Arabia and other oil-rich gulf states of the Arabian peninsula launched their bombing campaign non-stop against the tiny, peaceful country of Yemen situated along the southwestern belt of the Peninsula.  The purpose of this naked aggression is to reinstall the government of Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, a puppet ally of Riyadh and the West.  Since the past two years the invaders have been hoping to drive out the indigenous Ansarullah revolutionists and restore Hadi's rule. The Saudi coalition has complete support of USA and Britain who have been supplying weapons, signaling the green light  to kill as many civilians as desired to crush the rising power and popularity of Ansarullah.

According to RT 100,000 Yemeni demonstrators filled Sanaa's al-Sabin Square.  But other sources have opined that the gathering was still larger.  It's been two years and the Yemeni people are waiting for the world to know what the Western powers are doing to them via their gulf Arab allies.  Close to 15,000 civilians killed, hundreds of thousands homeless, injured, maimed, orphaned, starving and 90% of the infrastructure flattened with acute shortage of food and potable water.  And we boastabout our planet as the "modern world?"  Any surprise why the mainstream media has NOT MENTIONED A WORD on the 2nd anniversary of the genocide in Yemen?

Kurds: More Dubious Than Presumed

Story of the Kurds fits quite comfortably inside the missing piece of that large 'bad guys' puzzle.

Kurds in Syria currently:

Syrian Kurds have strong disagreements with the Syrian National Council (political wing [of sorts] of FSA). Yet, as the YPG works in partnership with the US coalition, it also cooperates with FSA. The scenario isn't only an evidence of Kurdish-NATO connivance but a clear evidence that the Kurds will collude with any crook or cutthroat to achieve their political goal.  Needless to mention, FSA carries an ideology identical to all AlQaeda groups including ISIL whom Kurds have been fighting. FSA has systematically served as a conduit for foreign arms and money to AlQaeda factions inside Syria and has been responsible for inflicting mass brutalities on Syrian civilians.   Kurds have long been linked with US intelligence to promote ethnic dominance in the Kurdish region. From 2014 onward, they've been regularly providing feedback to US officials on the activities of Syrians and Iraqis. They are officially cooperating directly with FSA.

Taking up arms against ISIL is little or no reason to count on the Kurds as one of the groups that stand for the betterment of the Syrian Republic. Their ideological approach is perceptibly as destructive as AlQaeda's and their animosity towards the Syrian Government just as intense. Syrian Kurds have simplified the plan of foreign powers to dismember Syria, assisting to make the mess still messier. Presence of the Kurds has further popularized the plan of partitioning Syria.   

They make up approximately 10% of the Syrian population. They have been claiming the Syrian northeast since end 2013 declaring it an autonomous zone. That was the time when ISIL fighters began proliferating across Syria and Iraq, getting stronger than their US financiers would appreciate. Washington was fully focused on curbing the strength and power of ISIL, retaining the terror group as a standby, but only strong enough to serve US interest. Back then, American officials thought little or nothing on forging an alliance with the Kurds and the zeal of Kurdish nationalism went largely unnoticed. It was as late as the fall of 2014 when the Kurds kicked out ISIL from Kobane, that they became adamant on "federalism in Rajova." PYD insists it isn't interested in an independent Kurdish state within Syria but acknowledges that it wants to be a part of "future democratic federal Syria." It rejects speculations that it's on Assad's side, asserting it's fighting Assad as well as ISIL. But there are regional differences within the Kurds which might, at some point, play to the advantage of the Syrian Government. Iraqi Kurds (KRG) are in no mood to support independence of Syrian Kurds as that could put them on a collusion course with Turkey;  KRG isn't willing to take the risk. Even the Americans are wary on that issue. At present Washington is handling quite a balancing game, utilizing the support of the Kurds taming ISIL and simultaneously not going too far pampering the Kurds that could annoy Turkey.  But hidden Western policy is more vividly exposed by retired diplomats who have been quite candid about their appreciation of Kurdish independence, namely citing the visit of Peter Galbraith and Bernard Kouchner to Qamishli in November 2016.

In October 2016, President Bashar al-Assad discarded the idea of "federalism" in Hasakah Governorate (northeast Syria) without a referendum as the majority in Hasakah are Arabs. It goes without saying that in an autonomous "Rojova" controlled by Kurds, ethnic discrimination and persecution of non-Kurds would be too rampant for the rule of justice to prevail.  But all Kurdish movements stand staunchly for federalism, interpreting it as "end to the dictatorship of the Arab majority."   You may recall, during Obama's regime federalism was 'plan B' among the suggestions of John Kerry for the break-up of Syria.

All Kurdish factions in Syria have abandoned waving the 2-green-star Syrian flag, replacing it with the Kurdish flag in the northeastern towns like Qamashli, Manjib, Afrin etc.  The Kurdish National Council has rejected the 'Syrian Political Solution' issued by the UN in early March 2017 as it mentions of Syria as "one people," seen by the Kurds as an oversight on the aspect of "ethnic diversity."

Kurds of ISIL:
May sound bizarre but it's real;  it exists. 
Paraphrasing below a quick summary from Foreign Affairs on the lengthy history of Kurdish extremism and its links to AlQaeda. 
One may presume that Arab extremist groups have not been popular within Kurdish circles. But truthfully, radical groups claiming to be 'jihadists' have existed among Kurds too, and in large numbers.  IMK ("Islamic" Movement of Kurdistan) was the first such group established in mid 1980s by a bunch of Iraqi Kurds based in Halabja fighting Saddam Hussain.  Most IMK members were trained in Afghanistan (apparently by the US) during the Soviet invasion of the country.  Reportedly IMK received help from Saddam's enemies throughout the 1990s.  At the end of the Kurdish civil war - that waged between Kurdistan Dem Party (KPD) and Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) in late 1990s - some members of IMK decided to join Iraqi Kurdistan's secular regional government (KRG) or Hukumat Iqlim Kurdistan.  That left the radical elements of IMK furious, forming into several small Kurdish Salafist groups.  The most active among them was Jund al-Islam in Halabja (probably in 1998) with ambitions of a Salafi-led revolution in Iraq which never materialized.  In 2001 it changed its title to Ansar al-Islam and established links with AlQaeda.  When AlQaeda infiltrated into Iraq in 2003 (as did the US forces),  Ansar al-Islam became a loyal partner of Abu Musab Zarqawi's Jund al-Sham.  Kurdish radicals and AlQaeda joined to make a common front and were responsible for carrying out numerous terrorist attacks against Iraqi civilians. 

This aspect also explains why and how many Kurdish commanders at present are well acquainted with AlQaeda's tactical warfare.  According to Kurdish officials, there are hundreds of Kurdish-ISIL sleeper agents either in KRG or within ISIL ranks.

Yes, it's worth reiterating that the participation of the Kurds in the Syrian war contributes generously to the dismemberment of the Syrian Arab Republic.
