From Georgia to Syria, Turkey and Egypt: As the Middle East remake continues

A bit more on Georgia-
Anonymous left some relevant links in the previous post, check em out!
Thanks Anonymous!

Which is why, Novosti was reporting this morning that Putin's Russia implicated Georgia in the riots...Is it a coincidence that Russia hostedf a massive Caucuses military drill, the Eusaisn air defense exercises around incoming cruise missiles and the recent testing of the nuclear strike force.

Anonymous, it is not a coincidence that Russia has implicated Georgia in riots, or that Russia hosted a massive military drill around cruise missiles and nuclear strikes..
Russia looks to be preparing for war. More precisely it appears Russia is prepared for an attack. Not to launch one, but to be attacked.

Found this interesting:

Chechen ex-militant: Georgia trained anti-Russian terrorists, then killed them in false flag op

NATO rebel tactics in Syria

Laying seige to soldiers and towns ensuring mass casualties

They had surrounded the government soldiers on the hilltop, a cluster of white tents just visible behind the trees, and were biding their time.

"There are 150 soldiers in there. We've cut off their food and weapons supply for four days now. When we feel they are weak enough, we can go in and storm it and take them prisoner," said Abdullah's commander, Anas al-Zeir, who heads the Youssef al-Azma Brigade.

Take them prisoner? Doubtful. More likely, once the Syrian troops are nearly dead the NATO mercs will slaughter them. Using this method of terror and slaughter has been very successful for NATO freedom fighters

‘The rebels' changed approach has brought some successes. Several towns and checkpoints have fallen into insurgent hands after being besieged for about a week.’

The rebels brought in help too. “At least one Chechen and several Arabs from abroad were among the fighters”.

At least on Chechen, maybe more. How many is several Arabs?

The fate of besieged soldiers was also not clear.

Up the road, at the seized checkpoint, fighters buried bloated bodies in the red dirt. They said the soldiers were killed by their own forces before they stormed the area but the claim was impossible to verify.

The rebels who have laid siege to Syrian soldiers make the unverifiable claim that the Syrian soldiers were “killed by their own”, but they (mercs) are burying the evidence of such atrocities?? That makes sense only in the context of covering up ones own crimes

Turkey talks peace while continuing to supply the rebels-

It was long past midnight, but the rebel commander couldn't sleep until his fighters returned from the Turkish border with the latest shipment of gear meant to help them battle the Syrian army.

In the morning, his team arrived with their prize: a single suitcase of night-vision goggles. For the first time, his brigade's snipers would be able to strike back at night against regime snipers who already have night-vision capabilities in the street-by-street fights for territory in the battleground city of Aleppo.

The NATO mercs can shoot at ordinary Aleppo citizens with the help of those night vision goggles too. All the better to terrorize the population..

Turkey and Egypt gettin' it together:

I like the NYT’s spin in the article

A wider-ranging partnership is expected to be announced in the coming weeks when the Turkish prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, whose party shares an Islamist pedigree with Egypt’s leadership, goes to Cairo.

“Apparently now Egypt is Turkey’s closest partner in the Middle East,”

The partnership is also rooted in the Islamist politics of the leaders of the two countries and their respective movements: Mr. Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party, or A.K.P., and the Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt’s president, Mohamed Morsi. This connection offers chances for a new Sunni Islamic bloc

Divide to conquer come to mind?

The scene at the annual convention of Mr. Erdogan’s party in Ankara, the capital, a few weeks ago offered a portrait of a realigned Middle East with Turkey at the helm. Mr. Morsi said at the gathering, “We offer our gratefulness for the support that the Turkish people and its administration has extended and will extend to us in the future.” To a standing ovation, Khaled Meshal, the political leader of Hamas, the Palestinian militant group, declared of Mr. Erdogan: “You are not only a Turkish leader. You are, now, also a leader of the world of Islam.”

 Really, Mr Hamas in Palestine? Turkey, champion of the Palestinians? Not on your life!
Keeping in mind who created Hamas in Palestine??? (Israel) Hamas in Palestine likes Erdogan? Must have been Erdogan’s “brave stance” when it came to the Mavi Marmara and the starvation blockade of Gaza that won him over?

Lavrov speaks:
Syrian Conflict Part of Mideast 'Geopolitical Game' Stating the obvious, unless one is willfully blind? Or willfully ignorant?

"It appears that every time the hope for progress in the Syrian situation arises, somebody attempts to prevent it from calming down and deliberately fuels the continuation of the bloodshed" in Syria, Lavrov said.

According to Lavrov, the Syrian conflict is "part of geopolitical remapping of the Middle East, where various players attempt to safeguard their interests."

Assad, who is widely viewed as a close ally of Iran, has been unfairly made "a scapegoat" in this "big geopolitical game," Lavrov said.

He defended Assad by calling him "a guarantor of the security of national minorities, among them Christians, who have been living in Syria for centuries."

Speaking of remaking the Middle East, which is so obvious
The Turkish people understand this!

“What's happening in Syria is all part of America's great project to reshape the borders of the Middle East. America and its allies don't care about bringing democracy to the Syrian people. Look at what happened to Iraq!” he fumes. “The imperialist countries are only after oil and mineral resources.”

Nineteen months into Syria's conflict, resentment of Ankara and anti-US sentiment simmer in Antakya, which lies just over the border with Syria. 

The beliefs stem in part from a bold Bush administration political proposal that has faded into obscurity in the West, but remains lodged in the minds of many here. Known as the Greater Middle East Initiative, it was formally introduced by then-US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in 2006 at a conference in Tel Aviv. Her references to "the birth pangs of a New Middle East" and the unveiling there of a new map of the region featuring a "Free Kurdistan" are still remembered with resentment. 

Refik Eryilmaz, a Turkish parliamentarian from Antakya with the opposition Republican People's Party, says that Western superpowers are trying to incite a sectarian conflict between Sunnis and Shiites so that countries in the region fragment along ethno-religious lines, becoming weaker in the process.

 Of course Gilbert Achcar quoted below speaks in the typical spin fashion. He even used the "conspiracy" word in his diatribe. Non credible. Conspiracy is the trigger word used to shut your thought processes down.

Gilbert Achcar, a professor of international relations at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London, says that the Greater Middle East Initiative has long since been abandoned, and all that remains is the deep skepticism of US motives that it spurred....

 Has it been abandoned Gilbert? It sure as hell doesn’t look that way! Does Gilbert think people are that gullible? That a simple ‘appeal to authority’ is going to be taken as anything but a means of covering the obvious agenda?


  1. As I mentioned my wrist and hand are sore and I will just stick to posting for now
    Comment away and help me fill the blanks
    Thanks as always

  2. A very good post, as depicted in the "Thirteenth Tribe", it is not about oil or gas it is about re-enacting The Khazar Empire this time the country the centre is occupied Palestine. This was forecasted by the Mayans, why do you think when you Google do you get so much mumbo jumbo about The Ninth Wave?

  3. I find the story about rebel tactics to be very unbelievable.

    Syria has 150 troops sitting on a hilltop in white tents and they are slowly being starved out? What is this, the middle ages?

    Syria can't simply send a couple of tanks and troop carriers to rescue them? They can't attack the rebels to free the troops with anything other than rare fighter jet attacks? If Syria was concerned enough to sent a fighter jet surely they would use its superior force on the ground to attack as well, right?

    The "news" has been noticeably untrustworthy the last few weeks.
    My guess is the news from the Turkish border has mostly a media/psychological operation to justify NATO involvement.

    Sure, maybe the 'rebels' are focused on harassing these areas via snipers and by doing attacks and moving on, but I doubt they are 'besieging' any areas. I imagine the Syrian military still has control of any area they want to control. They may be playing a game of cat and mouse and the Syrian troops may always be a step behind . . . . but I doubt the siege tactic is used as described.

    You gotta love this propaganda the "journalists" in that Reuters piece engage in, where a rebel fighter is alleged to say:

    "We understand the destruction that is happening, that either way, it is Syrian blood that is running," one man in the group whispered. "We may have a smile on our face and cheers of joy on our lips. But inside, our hearts are breaking."

    The man is a poet and a fighter. So noble. So . . . . fake!

    1. hey wwm

      don't know enough about military tactics
      what was interesting was the brutality of the rebels and of course the foreigners
      chechens and "arabs" not Syrians
      I caught the poet at the end -rolling eyes
      very fake

  4. Another important piece from the Foreign Policy article I quote in a comment to Penny's last post, also involving Russia, is this:

    Today's announcement by Medvedev is the second backwards step in the U.S.-Russia reset in two days. On Tuesday, the Obama administration announced that it would stop honoring its obligations under the Conventional Forces in Europe (CFE) Treaty with regard to Russia. That was retaliation for Russia's complete disregard for the CFE treaty since 2007.

    So that little dust up last fall between Russia and the U.S. provided cover for the U.S. to withdraw from that treaty. The caveat about it being "with regard" to Russia is meaningless.

    The U.S. has basically dropped all pretense of limiting its military adventures in places like Turkey or Georgia and probably even Europe.

    Wonder what type of press this has gotten in Germany.

    1. "he Obama administration announced that it would stop honoring its obligations under the Conventional Forces in Europe (CFE) Treaty with regard to Russia."

      I would agree the US has dropped all pretense, is right, and good wording!!

      That's all it has been pretense

    2. Yeah, the "with regard to Russia" is a neat trick too. The treaty carefully delineates what weapons and forces the U.S. is allowed to have from Europe to Asia. Sure, the justification for the treaty was the Cold War and standoff with Russia, but the U.S. presence effects all of Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.

      In an entire year since the U.S. basically withdrew from the treaty, there have only been 1,380 articles on this treaty (according to Google News) and not much from the MSM!

      Just boggles my mind that 'news' that would appear in the first paragraph of a history book on these subjects is not even reported in the news. Kind of like Russia walking back from its historical alliance with Syria is not talked about. And kind of like the fact that Iran and Syria have a mutual defense pact similar to the NATO is not talked about.

    3. Actually, my bad, I get 2(!) results when doing the search in Google "News." The other results were from a regular google search and those links appear to be mostly periodicals or policy websites like Foreign Policy (which apparently only had the story on a blog on its website??).

  5. Russia ship related to Mali? Sudan blames Israel for weapons factory explosion (Gaza escalation related to UN bid, which won China favor yesterday?)

    Russian ship with Arms halted in Nigeria: Russian Ship Not Involved in Arms Smuggling – Foreign Ministry (“The Nigerian officials were promptly notified about the weapons on board through the ship’s agent in the port of Lagos, therefore any claims about an attempt to smuggle arms into the country are ungrounded,” he said.). Ship owned by Merc outfit: http://www.moran-group.org/en/about/index

    Weapons smuggling?
    "The vessel was carrying 8,598 ammunitions and different rifles. Investigations are still ongoing," said Navy spokesman Commodore Aliyu Kabiru. The ship, "Myre Seadiver", which was owned by the Moscow-based Moran Security Group and had a Dutch flag, was intercepted in Lagos over the weekend, according to Kabiru. Authorities discovered 14 Ak-47 rifles and 42 rifles on the vessel, Navy Rear-Admiral Ameen Ikioda added."


    Sudan weapons factory explosion, this link saying Israeli airstrikes?

    Palestinians to bring up UN bid next month. yesterday won China backing
    "Palestinian leaders plan to shake up the 19-year-old peace process and proceed with a United Nations statehood bid next month over U.S. objections, chief negotiator Saeb Erakat said."

    Israel to redeploy some of its troops from US drill to address Gaza.
    Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Chief-of-Staff, Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz on Wednesday ordered to cut back the number of troops taking part in the extensive Austere Challenge-12 (AC-12) air-defense drill conducted jointly with the U.S. military

    [back in August: State media: Top government officials among 32 killed in plane crash...The delegation was travelling aboard a chartered helicopter to the volatile South Kordofan state to attend prayers on the first day of the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of the fasting month of Ramadan.]


    And another Military plane down in in early Oct. [The plane's engine stopped working and the pilot was trying to make an emergency landing when he went down about 40km (25 miles) southwest of the Khartoum suburb of Omdurman, state news agency SUNA reported.]

  6. As for that SA-7 reportedly fired in Gaza, Russians saying Syrian rebels have Stingers

  10. For somebody like me who believes Karma is a bitch, good news is coming our way. Hurricane Sandy is coming to the land of the "destroyers", this a a big, big mother and will do a lot of damage to the North East USA. This BTW was forecasted in the Ninth Wave, many were mislead and believed that hurricane Irene was the "perfect Storm" which was forecasted.
