Start here Baghdad Coup attempt? Kerry dictates to Maliki & the Iraqis- Comply or else!
Go here Baghdad- New PM picked/Maliki ousted?/ Biden calls Kurdish Prez for 'attaboy'
And then below .......
I’m going to be straight up- The Yazidi narrative? I don’t find it credible. I find it convenient. But, not credible.
*Why on earth would the Yazidi’s who are Kurds, however that is defined, head up to some mountain top on the border of Syria, when Kurdish territory is heavily guarded and virtually untouched?
The tale seems implausible.
There are numerous news items telling us all how the Kurds, rescued the Kurds, known as the Yazidi's
after Escaping the Jihadist horde, and the threat of genocide-
"Stranded Yazidis rescued by Kurdish peshmerga after escaping Jihadist horde threatening genocide"So did the Kurds escape? Were they rescued? Or is this just another lie of war?
What do the images below really show us? Do they appear to be daring mountain rescues?
I'll include a few images
Everyone pile into a big machine and someone will take a picture?- No dust being turned up, indicating movement?
|Yet another Toyota pick up truck- the vehicle of ISIS jihadis and Kurds? So, is this ISIS on the move or Kurds?|
|Lady escaping on donkey?|
|Donkey riding lady reclining somewhere?|
If there are so many refugees it would seem odd that the same woman would appear in more then one image used to bolster a narrative? I also didn't get a mountain rescue vibe from the pictures. In fact I didn't get a rescue vibe- period So, I have some serious doubts about the Yazidi/Sinjar mountain/genocide story
What seems more plausible under cover of a genocide narrative?
-We do know that the US dropped quite an amount of 'humanitarian aid' One drop had contained:
The U.S. Defence Department said planes dropped 72 bundles of supplies, including 8,000 ready-to-eat meals and thousands of gallons of drinking water, for threatened civilians near Sinjar.There have been more drops-
France was supposed to have delivered some humanitarian aid
We know Britain did the same thing? Along with increasing "personnel" to Irbil. Oh, let me guess what or who the personnel being sent to Irbil might be? Special ops? More of NATO Islamist fighters?
As well as stepping up air drops of essential aid to the north of the troubled country, Downing Street said the number of UK personnel in Irbil would be increased to help deal with the developing crisis.
“The first UK aid drop took place over Mount Sinjar last night, with the RAF delivering bundles that included 1,200 reusable water containers providing 6,000 litres in total and 240 solar lanterns that can also be used to recharge mobile phones.Wow, solar lanterns that can be used to recharge mobile phones!
Let me say that again- 240 solar lanterns that can also be used to recharge mobile phones.
So, genocide be damned as long as the Kurds known as Yazidi's can charge their mobile phones?
I do however believe that Islamist rebels are ensconced in refugee camps built by Turkey in that area and that the US and France and UK are dropping supplies to them. Supplies in the form of weapons, lots of weapons. Food. Water. Communications devices. Based on the information at hand, I suspect these ISIS troops are prepping for a push into Syria. And they will have air cover thanks to the USA
A no fly zone, by stealth
Hope I am wrong. I certainly want to be. I hate to think of the situation in Syria worsening.
I want Syria to remain the independent nation it has shown itself to be.
The follow up post, that I am a day late on has just been posted
So, if you have the time...
