Wider War in the Middle East: The Grim Reaper Smiles

I've been working on this post for the past week-Take the time to read everything included, plus check all the links. I'm not interested in trolls making pointless allegations. Read the post, check the links, read them and then leave something of substance regarding the material- Thank You!

When first reading this news  June 10/15, I became alarmed at what this increase in advisers signified At the time this news article was initially written the headline announced the increasing of advisers to Iraq- The headline now reads: Obama plans to send more troops into Iraq
original url-
“The Obama administration is retooling its strategy in the fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in Iraq. The president plans to send hundreds more American military advisers into the country, and to establish a new base to accelerate the training of Iraqi forces in Anbar province, the western section of Iraq where ISIS has made recent, unnerving military gains”
Advisers aren’t going to just  train Iraqi forces. Advisers are going to lead the newly trained Sunni militia men from Anbar province. That training had begun last year

Flashback to this previous post: Sleight of Hand: US reaches out to "awakening councils
“The Obama administration is reaching back to an Iraq War programme as a guide to keep disgruntled Sunnis from joining a rampant new insurgency. US officials hope to persuade Sunni militiamen known as Sahwa, or Awakening Councils, to fight back against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant as they did nearly 10 years ago against Al Qaida.”
Except Obama wasn’t reaching back, to reconnect. As explained in that previous post, because, he had always been in touch with these Sunni militia men of Anbar.  We can connect him with the Sunni fighters of Anbar province in 2008- That’s 7 years ago, my friends. 7 years ago.......
"When George W. Bush visited Iraq in September 2007, my host on my tour of Fallujah, Sheik Aifan, was delighted to meet him. Bush, he claimed, was "very smart and a brother." During the summer of 2008, he would meet Barack Obama as well. When asked what he thought of Obama, he told Richard Rowley, "U.S. foreign policy tends not to change with a new president"
The Shiek was correct!  US foreign policy doesn't change and didn't change one iota with the "hope and change" selection of the first black president of the US, Obama.

Anbar province? What is so very interesting about Anbar province in Irq?
 Why it’s the birthplace of ISIS!! That is not a coincidence. And I am not a coincidence theorist

Reading two previous posts, I will relink below, are crucial to understanding that Obama is repeating what was done previously- There isn’t anything new in this strategy.
I’m going to explain this plan in as short and sweet a fashion, as possible:

Approximately 10 years ago, the Bush administration  used the Sahwa or Awakening Councils allegedly to reign in Al quaeda- All that really happened was Al Quaeda melded into the Awakening council/Sahwa or Sunni militias. That’s it. A straight up morphing into the pot sweetened with all sorts of  power/money deals. This is covered in the two posts linked below from last year

  ISIS- A US created "stay behind" using Iraqs plundered wealth

 ISIS rises up out of the ashes of the U.S.-led invasion to oust Saddam Hussein as al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI)

Al Qaeda + "Awakening Councils" = ISIS

 "If we understand ISIS to be a left behind army, working on behalf of another master, then the application of  pressure on Maliki & the collusion between the Kurds of Iraq and ISIS makes perfect sense."

The point I am making at this time?

As there was no difference then between the Sunni militiamen and AQ then,  there is no difference between these Sunni militia men and the rebranded AQ, which is ISIL or ISIS now.
Therefore If Obama is ‘reaching back’ to these same groups that originated in Anbar to fight the pretext that is ISIS, what is actually happening or will be happening very soon is WIDER WAR in region!

“The plan calls for upwards of 500 more advisers to augment the 3,000 U.S. troops in Iraq now, reports CBS News chief White House correspondent Major Garrett. All of the troops would remain under the same tight guidelines -- no front line advising or intelligence gathering -- to minimize the risk of combat deaths or capture”

Mr. Obama said Iraq must provide more recruits and use the 8,000 trained forces more effectively to reverse ISIS gains in the Sunni strongholds of Ramadi and Fallujah

So 500 advisers + 3,000 US troops + 8,000 previously trained forces + Kurdish Forces, unsure of numbers there + NATO forces + Useful idiots as cannon fodder dragged in from NATO nations = boots on the ground for a wider war.

Kurdish Forces? 

Yes, Kurdish forces supported by NATO airstrikes! After all Kurdish forces under whichever brand name, Peshmerga, YPG, have been supported by NATO all along.
CBS article: “Mr. Obama also said his emerging strategy needs to reduce the flow of foreign fighters and new efforts are to begin on the border between Syria and Turkey to use Kurdish fighters and U.S. airstrikes to deter new ISIS recruits from joining the fight.”
So we have our  pretext for the wider war - deterring ISIS recruits from joining the fight?  Stemming the flow of new recruits coming in via Turkey.  Let’s chat about the fighters coming into Syria via Turkey very briefly?

Who is allowing the fighters into Syria? Obviously not the Syrian government because they have long lost control of most of the border crossings
Shall we take a gander at whose controlling the border crossings? Or let me make it easier for all of us to understand- Syria controls only ONE batch of open border crossings. Just one border with one nation. That sole, Syrian controlled, open border crossing is shared with Lebanon.
Al the rest of the border crossings have been closed by Turkey or  are controlled by the Kurds or ISIS- So, who is letting foreign fighters into Syria? The KurdIShIS fighters- Controlled at the top by NATO- (Briefly- Yes, the deluded Erdogan was involved with the destabilization of Syria- drunk with power he believed he was an equal- He was mistaken. I believe we have moved past the time where Turkey's elected government is fully participatory- keeping in mind the deep state- gladio etc)

Only Border Syrian Regime Still Controls is with Lebanon
Of Syria's 19 border posts with Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, and Turkey, government forces now control just seven -- five with Lebanon, and two more, both closed, with Turkey
The article goes through each border crossing and who is in control of it. The only change from the above linked news is at Tal Abyad: Which is now Kurdish controlled as they 'took' it from ISIS.
As so often happens---but not because the Kurds are such strong fighters, most often because ISIS just retreats- I can't imagine why ;)

Considering the border crossing news, we have to realize that almost all anti- Syrian  fighters entering Syria have been allowed in by ISIS/L or the Kurds- Or as like to call the NATO/US unified group of Sunni Muslim fighters KurdIShIS
The only ones continuing to spread the 'blame the Turkish' government meme, presently, is the NATO media and the disingenuous  NATO allied Kurds

So here we have the NATO affiliated Sunni Muslim Kurdishis fighters controlling the border of  Turkey & Syria presently being supported by US air power?  Dare I say soon to be supported by ever bigger NATO airpower   in order to create a “No fly zone for Peace”

To save lives, alleviate the refugee crisis, and bring about a peaceful transition in Syria, the most practical, feasible step is a no-fly zone (NFZ).
Since when has there ever been a no fly zone for peace! Do you wanna talk Orwellian double speak, sheesh!!!!!

As was mentioned yesterday the aerial raids of the US, in partnership with the NATO allied Kurds, are being used to ethnically cleanse northern Syria of Syrian civilians to create the NATO contrived Kurdistan. Is the US Complicit in Ethnic Cleansing in Syria? Yes, Obviously!

Considering this from September 30/2014 :White House- Kill Syrian/Iraqi Civilians- Exemption for airstrikes

 The White House has acknowledged for the first time that strict standards President Obama imposed last year to prevent civilian deaths from U.S. drone strikes will not apply to U.S. military operations in Syria and Iraq.

The no fly zone for peace meme suggests a cleansing is definitely in the offing. The US will not apply any standards what so ever to prevent civilian deaths in Iraq or Syria. This will extend to Turkey in short order.

With one “no fly zone for peace” stone how many metaphorical birds are to be taken out ?

Destroy Iraq. Destroy Syria. Destroy Turkey. Create an artificially contrived Kurdistan based on the ancient Assyrian lands.  Foment a wider war engulfing the entire region. Taking in Saudi Arabia, Jordan etc., empowering Israel, allowing Israel to steal more land- See: Israeli Minister calls on World to Recognize Golan Annexation

 Everything a banker/ war monger/ military industrialist complex misery inducing industry loves...
Check, check, check !!!!

Eventually the no fly zone will be expanded into Turkish territory.

Two reasons will be given. Stop ISIS terrorists- get them before they get us. "Protect" Kurds. It's a well worn meme, very broadly implanted, so it can easily be used yet again to convince the populace of the absolute need for this desired wider war
This truly IS NOT about fighting ISIS. 
Obama and company are laying the groundwork for the “big war” in the Middle East- The one that will go down in the lie filled history books as “The Great Sunni-Shia War” This is the war we are all supposed to believe is the worst case scenario. But it isn’t. It’s exactly the war that has been planned for.

McClatchy-Mideast’s worst case: A ‘big war’ pitting Shia Muslims against Sunni
“The Middle East crisis that peaked one year ago Wednesday when the Islamic State captured Mosul may result in the breakup of Iraq and an indefinite continuation of a war in Syria that’s already out of control, analysts say.

Yah, the taking of Mosul- Who were the beneficiaries from that incident?
The fall of Mosul. Who benefits and who does not. Updated!
Surely not Iraq, as the US took their elected leader out! Recall? Maliki stands down- US Regime change accomplished via ISIS terror proxy

McClatchy continuing:
“Yet still worse things could happen”

“The conditions are very much like 1914,” says Michael Stephens of the Royal United Service Institute in London. “All it will take is one little spark, and Iran and Saudi Arabia will go at each other, believing they are fighting a defensive war.”

Gee, who might ignite that spark? Dumdeedumdeedum........Israel

Hiwa Osman, an Iraqi Kurdish commentator, was even more blunt: “The whole region is braced for the big war, the war that has not yet happened, the Shiite-Sunni war.”
Keeping in mind the Sunni Muslim Kurds are all ready to participate in that big war!

The Shiite Sunni war. 

It’s been playing out all over the place. Kurds and ISIS, both being Sunni, already aligned, killing cleansing the landscape of Shiites, Christians and non cooperative Sunni’s.

But this is NOT really a Sunni/Shia war!:  This is an order out of chaos, profiteering, plundering war. However- The meme is planted "The Shiite- Sunni war"! That's going to be the presentation.
It’s convenient to keep the narrative simple for the gullible. It's easier to present this planned for and desired war, redrawing borders, profiteering in the typical black vs white sort of scenario of Sunni vs Shia- we've been being prepped for this narrative for some time now.

If the US/Israel/NATO psychopaths didn’t want the ‘big war’ to happen, they would have stopped training rebels. Stopped arming rebels. Stopped training Kurds. Stopped arming Kurds. These nations, including Canada would not have dropped weapons to ISIS.  Would have stopped recruiting fighters through domestic intelligence agencies. Wouldn't have carried out numerous false flags to justify their war agenda-( Thinking here of Canada & the Ottawa shooting) Step by step the NATO nations, alongside Israel have built this worst case scenario into a reality. And it will get worse, it will expand, by design. (NATO design)

Turkey: It’s in NATO’s crosshairs. Balkanization.
It’s been a topic here since last year....

Hat tip to James@ winterpatriot who left this article earlier in the week from Eric Draitser-

Did the War in Syria Just Become a Regional War?

"With tensions high over escalations in Ukraine and the South China Sea, the potential for global conflict has never been higher. Those who trade in doomsday prognostication are certainly busy these days. But perhaps it is Syria and the Middle East where the true global conflict is taking place.

The question is: has anyone noticed?"

I've noticed!


  1. My carpal tunnel is killing me. Ouch- enjoy the read, check the links
    and don't be a troll- I love contributions but not trash

    1. if you do have carpal tunnel and arent joking..try vitamin B6

    2. Not joking my carpal tunnel is killing me, a bit better now, but excessive blogging is getting to it!

      I'll check the link- thanks brian :)

  2. Hi Penny: Well thought out analysis. Thanks. As I've said before...way back in 2001/2002 just after 9/11 when I first started posting on the NYT forums (they were genuine discussion forums then) there were some posters who kept calling for Iraq to be divided (ethnically) into three parts. They kept beating that drum incessantly. Now, re Turkey. I think that will be a tougher nut to crack. I know they would like to destroy Turkey but Turkey has a long cultural history of fighting and has aligned with Russia. At some point, Russia is going to have to step up and defend its allies...of course...that's just what the warmongers want. WWIII!


  3. BTW, if you ever want to e-mail me you can do so at

    1. Thanks greencrow
      I would love to be able to drop you a line outside of the blogs

  4. Excellent article, Penny....

    I hope you do not mind me borrowing it from you and reposting it over at NTS? It goes quite well with my stand that all 'terrorism' is an absolute fraud and done to try to scare the gullible masses into accepting their enslavement....

    1. feel free North
      btw good show you and wraithe did with beulahman? (spelling)
      I enjoyed it!

    2. Its Buelahman... Close enough.....

      We are trying for another show this Friday depending on Wraithe's back issues... You are welcome to listen and I sure would love to have you call in.... Wraithe does not use SKYPE for calls due to the trouble she has had with Blogtalk in general which sometimes has been a pain....

      I personally would love to have you on as a guest sometime.. Let me know...

    3. Hey North
      I will check your place and see if the show is a go
      As for being a guest? I would love to :)
      I'll get in touch with ya!

    1. Hi jo
      well I thank you for reading it- my husband says I think way too much
      I did my best to give an idea of what I see happening based on the information I have gathered via the msm

  6. And to think, all this trouble just to oppose Eurasian Trade integration. Our Western corporations really do want it all. Sad.

    1. I suspect this is larger then just Eurasian trade integration.
      This is for Israel too
      For the other eternal victims 'kurds'
      There are multiple agendas at play here
      oil pipelines, resource controls, profits for corporations

  7. "THE JEWS" are the scapegoat of the Luciferian elite

    "But it isn’t. It’s exactly the war that has been planned for." Yes it is!

    "This is an order out of chaos," = ORDO AB CHAO

    The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the "agentur" of the "Illuminati" between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time." 4

    1. "THE JEWS" are the scapegoat of the Luciferian elite?

      I'm not sure what this even means. Or what this is a reference to in my post?
      Could you clarify?

    2. A different anonymous here...sorry for butting in. This is my understanding of what the comment means and it has to do with the distinction that should be made between genuine Jews and Zionists who declare themselves to be Jewish.

      I know a lot of people are turned off by religion/sermons etc. but since the Israelis maintain that their right to be in Palestine is because of a promise from God, it should behove the rest of us to check out that claim according to the Bible whether we believe in it or not. We should inform ourselves of the basis for what they claim even if it is down to faith in something we ourselves do not believe in. They rely on our ignorance for a lot of things.

      I came across this by 'accident' and decided to it watch and am glad that I did.

      It explains that, according to the Bible, the seizure of Palestine is not God driven (that is, not the God of the Bible) but man (dark powers?) driven, that there is no star of David in the Bible but there is a star associated with the worship of false gods (which begs the question who is the god of the modern state of Israel and what exactly does the symbol on their sign represent?)

      I have drawn my own conclusions from the information, strongly recommend the movie in the link and leave the rest of you to come to your own conclusion based on the info contained in it.

      For me, it explains a lot about the actions of the Israeli regime. I am not sure about the accuracy of the Rothchild red shield in other things I have seen, where the shield is actually a red version of the symbol on the Israeli flag. Perhaps someone else here can shed more light on this.

      I think the Jews are being used by darker powers, just like everyone else is being used by them, hence the reference to their being "scapegoated".

      Sorry that this is perhaps a bit off topic here. Or is it?

    3. Hi, different anonymous here. All "Jews" are not the same.

      I came across this by accident and decided to watch it. It makes some interesting points regarding the formation of Israel and the claim of entitlement because of a promise from God. An interesting theory regarding the Israeli flag in there too.

      I commend it to you, Draw your own conclusions or follow up on the information presented.

    4. anonymous- there is nothing there to watch
      If you come by leave a link?

    5. Anonymous 3:28, found comment and link in the spam folder
      so it's there and you did leave it! - so I will watch as soon as I can

  8. Penny,

    The only problem with all this is that you are taking many of their comments at face value. They couldn't tell the truth if it was in their own interest and Jesus was standing next to them. Apologies, but I am reminded of a certain radio host who is famous for saying that the media are lying and then five minutes later bragging that he only talks about things that are documented somewhere, such as in government documents or the MSM. Not that you are in that class at all, but you do see the point I hope. Don't let them drive your thinking. Obama doesn't need to announce something to do it. Many important things are never announced at all, even way after they have happened.

    These cretins want something, such as a KSA-Iran war, and give different lies to various sides to promote the thinking that will lead to it. And they have such enormous media pull that it sometimes works. The Ukraine being an example of a country committing suicide, as it was practically occupied by the US for over a decade. Even there, though, it was a standard US coup that did the trick. But the Saudi king is going to Russia, as he can see the writing on the wall. And Iran, Hezbollah, and Russia are not letting Syria down, despite the incessant lying in the Western press. This doesn't mean Iraq can be put back together again or that Turkey is going to be happy about whatever happens with the Kurds.

    The other thing is that the Anglo-American Empire has overplayed and overlyed its hand in many places. As an example, Aliyev and Erdoghan are now not happy with Western actions and plans. Georgia is in a bind and may have to give in to Russia. These are the Western assets there, and they are not happy. Makes Putin, Yerevan, and Tehran feel a lot happier, and gives Russia a lot more room to maneuver. Similarly, the West is starting to run out of new suckers to deceive in other parts of the world, such as the Middle East.

    So cheer up a bit.


    1. Hi Paul! :)

      "The only problem with all this is that you are taking many of their comments at face value. "

      Odd that you say that, because, that is never, ever, how I process things here.
      Recall the US talk about Maliki before they ousted him?
      It appeared they were pushing him out despite the bullshit that was passing their lips. So, no taking their comments at face value is not what I do. How I sort through all this activity is by looking at the events or actions. These speak to me- The words are empty

      Nothing is written in stone, of course, and I wouldn't even suggest these things will happen with certainty, what I'm suggesting is this looks to be the NATO plan for the middle east- the remaking, redrawing plot
      it's not even a new plot-
      I see /understand Erdogan is not happy with western plans and why would he be?

      But I will be blunt here- Kurdistan, and it's creation will bode as badly for that area of the world as the placement of Israel in the neighbourhood did.
      Or Kosovo to it's region.
      And this is of course an intentional placement in a geopolitically important region

      There are more reasonable ways to accomplish change. Displacement, killing, mayhem, environmental devastation etc sets us all back, though, many sadly don't realize or understand this- (not referring to you paul, just a general sort of observation)

      I'm cheerful, no worries there

  9. Penny,

    I just think your righteous anger may be getting the better of you. The Anglo-American Empire will never brag that it lost badly. When 90% of Syria is cleaned out of the insurgents, they will still talk about some BS or other. It is their nature. The NATO plan has been known for a long time, and now Turkey, Iran, Syria, KSA, Russia, China, Egypt, and various others are working to stop it. Yes, they have tactical differences, but the bigger picture is that things haven't been going the Empire's way. The wild card is that Israel may finally enter the fray to some extent as their insurgents are not doing well, even with all the training, outside leadership, and high-tech gear given to them in the last few months. Yes, their operation in Palmyra was impressive, but it was only one fight. The other ten that the insurgents have lost lately aren't in the news.

    My bigger point is that most Western media is a psyop. It isn't enough to say they are lying, that goes without saying. It is the message they are getting across that we have to not be driven by. If the NY Times says "Recent reports suggest that Assad quit beating his wife last year as it was causing problem amongst his Alawi-dominated military supporters.", we can't just say they are lying. We have to stop letting them drive the talking points and our minds.
    As for the creation of a Kurdish state of some sort, well, of course the US wants a new Kosovo. Hard to say what will happen, but it looks like Iran has decided to finally cross its Rubicon, so we will have to see what the US wants to do with ISIS. Turkey and KSA may not be happy with lots of new friends deciding to spend time there. And KSA is in grave danger these days, so that is perhaps the most interesting thing of all.

    Besides, the real problem with a Kurdistan or Kosovo is not so much the country per se, it is that they are pseudo-countries run and owned by the usual bankster-militarist criminals. If and when those folks lose some of their power, the game will change.

    Glad to hear you are cheerful. I sensed anger and pessimism.


    1. Hi Paul- Interesting that you mention this as quoted below:

      "The wild card is that Israel may finally enter the fray to some extent as their insurgents are not doing well, even with all the training, outside leadership, and high-tech gear given to them in the last few months"

      I saved an article yesterday that indicates this might just be something Israel is getting ready to enact

      btw: If anger and pessimism ever overtake my sense- this blog will cease.
      because then there would just be no point in continuing
