Fighting ISIS Terrorism? Saving Syria? US Airstrikes Advance Kurdish State Creation

Let's look at some interesting facts, shall we?

US-led airstrikes over Syria have helped the Kurds advance to connect their cantons/regions

Keep in mind the vast numbers of dislocated Syrians the western governments and media cry crocodile tears over

Kurds flash the victory sign in Sanliurfa, Turkey on 12 November 2014
"Ain Issa has come under our full control, along with dozens of villages in the surrounding area," YPG spokesman Redur Khalil told AFP.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based monitor, said IS had withdrawn from the town and YPG and rebel forces were now checking for mines laid by IS.

ISIS has withdrawn, again! From yet another town! Gosh that is so dam lucky for the Kurdish fighters! After ISIS has forced residents out of the town... They withdraw. And the Kurds step in?
Wash, Rinse, Repeat.
Pentagon data on US-led coalition airstrikes in the country shows that of the nearly 1,800 strikes launched in Syria since last year, at least 1,200 have supported Kurdish forces.
 However, the Kurdish advance has stirred controversy with allegations of ethnic cleansing of Arab and Turkmen villages surfacing in recent weeks.
The US has never officially said that it supports the YPG, with any outright backing likely to anger coalition partner and NATO member Turkey.
The People Protection Units, known as the YPG, are the military wing of the Kurdish Democratic Union Party, the main Syrian Kurdish force. The party is seen as an extension of the Turkish Kurdistan Worker's Party (PKK) which is seen as a terrorist organisation in Turkey and many Western countries, although there have been growing attempts in Europe to have the terror label removed.
After the predominantly Kurdish town was recaptured from IS, the coalition conducted more than 300 airstrikes around the town, ramping up the total number of airstrikes on Kobane to 943 since October.
Another Kurdish-controlled area where the coalition has conducted more than 250 airstrikes was the self-declared Jazirah Canton in northeastern Syria.
As Kurdish rebels moved west to connect their forces in the self-declared Jazirah and Kobani cantons the coalition has followed with intensive air support, a report by AA alleges.
The coalition has conducted 244 airstrikes on al-Hasakeh and Tel Abyad with more than half of the strikes carried out in the last three months. 
 The number of airstrikes in Northern Syria speak aloud the agenda-

 Kurdish analyst Civiroglu also said any offensive against Raqqa would require lengthy planning and additional weapons for the YPG and its allies, who would opt to consolidate their hold on Tal Abyad and surrounding areas.

Additional weapons for Kurdistan?
Why didn't the Neocon Krauthammer suggest that in his op ed just last week?

"In Mesopotamia, Balkanization...." Krauthammer loves Kurds & War

"begin supplying the Iraqi Kurds in a direct, 24-hour, Berlin-style airlift. And in Syria, intensify our training, equipping and air support for the now-developing Kurdish safe zone.
Yes. He did!

The goal?
 Our objective right now is to defeat the Islamic State and to ensure the fall of the Assad regime. That does not require an American invasion. It does require recognizing reality and massively supporting our few genuine allies on the ground.

Earlier today as Greece and EU at loggerheads, still:

  1. OT: Looks like the US is running another Maidan in Erevan, Armenia. The protestors refuse to negotiate over the supposed issue (electricity price increase) and are even flying EU flags.

  2. Penny, i do understand your frustration and rightly so, read you arguments with Arklight on Syrper, Arkilight is a bit sensitive on the Kurds, now while i do favour a country for the Kurds which could take up part of Syria ( the rest in the neighbouring regions) and with some conditions, like the oil fields etc i also find they are opportunistic and more than likely with the west trying to carve out a country with all the benefits.

    The was i see it is the Syrian government has paid for the explorations and equipment for the oil but the Kurds want everything for nothing, but we will see.

    1. Hi Chevi:

      Arklight, Okani, Nobilitis- Their rebuttals to my facts were nothing but pure, simple and plain ad hominem attacks- I always liked arklight, but, that's gone.
      Okani is something else entirely. IMO he sits on Syper as a paid shill
      And that's it- Others there were making comments wrt the Kurdish state and Okani didn't bite- But since I have a good readership and Okani knows this he viciously attacked me- lie after lie
      When I took both him and Nobilitis to task, direct challenge, they didn't even respond- They don't even come here to read and then check all the links and of they don't because then their logical fallacy/disinfo tactics would be shown clearly for the manipulations they are.

      I know you favour a country for them, but, what I don't understand is why?
      Why them of all people- So many others have been pushed out of their countries- Syrians, Iraqis, What makes the Kurds so deserving?
      Nothing does. They had stable countries they resided in. They certainly were not oppressed in Syria-
      There will never be peace, with Kurdish NATO nutters on the northern border of Syria
      The NATO affiliated Kurds are killing and harming their own for goodness sakes- Only NATO rewards terrorists with a nation
      Israel,(Khazars) Kosovo, Kurds
      Prior to this destabilization there was no support amongst the Kurds for their own nation- (yes, I saw a poll and an article mentioning this) Likely because the Kurds never had one and saw no need for it.
      Why hasn't the Palestinian issue been settled?
      Do the Druze need a country to?
      How about the Roma? Where is there country? They are a poorly treated people in Europe and were also abused by the Nazi's

      The sole reason we have been presented the Kurds as needing a nation meme is to have a destabilizing nation aligned with Israel in the ME
      And another NATO terror state
      And as a means to destabilize Turkey and fan the flames of further war
      None of that sounds to me like a good reason to create the Kurdish nation

    2. So many faults with your post I don't where to start......but I'll help you a bit.

      "They had stable countries they resided in. They certainly were not oppressed in Syria" ..........please do more research....

      "The NATO affiliated Kurds are killing and harming their own for goodness sakes- " ...........more research needed...

    3. chilli's comment is typical of a spin type comment
      when you make claims (I'm mistaken) it is on you to support your claim
      I've done plenty of research and most but not all of it is here

      and ad hominem aka 'please do more research' is totally useless
      it's on you to refute with evidence your own claims as a challenge to my hundreds of posts concerning Syria with at least 100 of them regarding the Kurds- so spare me your spin
      you got facts? bring them on or go away.

    4. btw Chilli your quotes have nothing to do with my post, they are partial quotations from a response I made to chevi, what else should be expected from a disinfo spinner but a blatant attempt to mislead readers here
      thankfully my readership is dam savvy!

  3. A good challenge that can drive one crazy is to calculate the number of truths in Krauthammer's sentences. By my count, there are more lies or twists than words.

    Of course, the reality is that Western interests are trying to create some kind of Kurdish state, and it looks like they will succeed. But what are Iran, Turkey, and Russia trying to see? Once the insurgents are pretty much under control in other areas, what is the game plan for dealing with the areas that will be under Kurdish control?

    I wouldn't worry so much about the protests in Armenia. What I would worry about is the same mess that is in all of the old Soviet states: corrupt and useless oligarchs, and the lack of any clear sign of knowing how to develop the country. Then add that Armenia is in a geographical prison, and dirt poor. The Kremlin and the rich Armenians in Moscow need to develop a plan for the future. Unfortunately, we can see how the Kremlin's planning went in Kiev.

    1. Hi Paul
      In any article there are always half truths, twisted words and obfuscation hiding the facts- It's a given.

      But the very fact that neo con Krauthammer is fully supporting the kurds is the equivalent of the neo con Nuland support the neo nazis in Ukraine

      so we have this commonality

      Neo Cons + Kurds = Neo Cons + Neo Nazis
      Neo Cons + Terrorism = Destabilization

      That my friend is a commonality that is undeniable.

      "Of course, the reality is that Western interests are trying to create some kind of Kurdish state, and it looks like they will succeed"

      There are so... many people who are completely unaware of that plot- they will consider it to be all happenstance- thanks to the manipulative media

      FYI- Chevi know that which I speak of- so many in denial to the obvious staring them right in the face.

      "But what are Iran, Turkey, and Russia trying to see? Once the insurgents are pretty much under control in other areas, what is the game plan for dealing with the areas that will be under Kurdish control? "

      What is the game plan? I don't know. I can't see it for Russia and Turkey etc at this time. Whatever it is they better be busily working on it.

      It's obvious for the neo con nato crowd the next move, or one of them, will be to spread the destabilization more intensely into Turkey- something I have written about since last year.
      The so called attack on Kobane is nothing but a frame up of Turkey
      The Kurds control that border- If anything happened in Kobane it's on them!

    With the risk to become a bore I must remind that the game has larger dimensions.
    Both Ukraine and Kurdistan are slated to become new bases of "Israel".

    "Dnepropetrovsk could be renamed - Jerusalem-on-the-Dnieper
    May 20, 2015
    Ukraina.ru
    German journalists from Deutschlandradio published an article titled "Dnepropetrovsk will become Jerusalem". Oleg Rostovtsev, a spokesman for the Jewish community, which has 50 000 parishioners, supports the renaming of Dnepropetrovsk to Jerusalem-on-the-Dnieper:
    "Jerusalem for residents of Dnepropetrovsk is a city of peace, not conflict. Many of us have already visited Jerusalem, worshiped the holy places, came back and said: here it's almost the same – next to the synagogue stands a mosque, and nearby there are churches and monasteries. We also respect our different traditions".
    The price tag to rename 25 Ukrainian cities and 1,500 streets – from 5 to 17 billion UAH."
