The end of Iraq is Nigh: Gorran Leader Nashirwin Mustafa returns from London.

Properly groomed, no doubt. And by groomed, I’m not talkin’ hair and nails.

Gorran leader Nawshirwan Mustafa returns to Iraqi Kurdistan

SULAIMANI, Kurdistan region ‘Iraq’,— Change Movement (Gorran) head Nawshirwan Mustafa arrived in Sulaimani International Airport in Iraqi Kurdistan on Thursday after seven months in Europe. (Europe? How about London)

Gorran Politburo member Aso Mahmud said the Gorran leader’s return would affect the political situation in the Kurdistan Region.
Mahmoud predicted Mustafa’s return would initiate a political movement in the region and said the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) was waiting for the “return of Nawshirwan Mustafa.”

 Here too

 Change Movement (Gorran) head Nawshirwan Mustafa arrived in Sulaimani International Airport on Thursday (April 28) after seven months in Europe.
Gorran Politburo member Aso Mahmoud said the Gorran leader’s return would affect the political situation in the Kurdistan Region.
Mahmoud predicted Mustafa’s return would initiate a political movement in the region and said the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) was waiting for the “return of Nawshirwan Mustafa.”
Nawshirwan Mustafa has examined several evaluations for solving issues in Kurdistan during his visit to London,” Mahmoud said. “He has a plan to deal with the region’s situation.”
Mustafa went to Germany for medical treatment in September 2015. After his stay in Germany, he went to the U.K. and during his time there he has met with a number of Kurdish officials.

Bye, bye Barzani.  Good bye Iraq. Hello Israel 2.0

If you are unfamiliar with Gorran and Mr Mustafa refresh your memory...

'Keep it under your hat!
  We’ve discussed the rather violent Gorran party, on several occasions, here at the blog.  Gorran is the PKK affiliate party, challenger to KDP in the Iraqi Kurdish region. There is some misinformation around, seeming to originate with Israel, that Gorran is an Iranian supported party. If it is supported by anyone in Iran, it is Iranians who identify as kurds.  So, who are the real benefactors of Gorran?  
A very vital clue may come from the fact that the leader of Gorran, a man called Mustafa, has left Iraq for London. Yes, the London that is in England! And has been there now for months under the pretext of receiving medical treatment!

From Earlier: US Controls Info and Data Regarding Mosul Dam. Why?


  1. Thank you for this post. Current events are evolving as you predicted months ago.

  2. Who allowed the protestors to breach the heavily fortified Green Zone in Iraq?

    Remember the US does not require a unified Iraq to move on Mosul...

    Hundreds of protesters climbed over the blast walls surrounding Baghdad's highly-fortified Green Zone for the first time on Saturday.

    Cellphone video uploaded to social media showed dozens of young men running through the halls of parliament, chanting slogans in support of al-Sadr and calling for the government to disband.

    Earlier on Saturday, a bombing in a market filled with Shiite civilians in Baghdad killed at least 21 people and wounded at least 42 others, according to police and hospital officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief reporters

    The bomb in the market would have rallied the masses
    but breaching the 'HEAVILY FORTIFIED" green zone (no guards/no gun fire) had to have been allowed, encouraged, knowing it would all be uploaded to anti social media as part of a psychological operation

    Clearly the US is moving on Mosul sooner, rather then later, as I expect.

    1. following the situation in Iraq since it was so darn obvious the breach of the green zone was allowed and planned for as a psyop
      check this news out and it should surprise no one who has been following along with the situation

      Shia Mob in Iraq Demands More Technocrats

      Oh really!!!!

      Baghdad Operations Command declared a state of emergency and said all roads into the capital had been closed....Iraq is in the grip of a political crisis, with Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi attempting to reshuffle his cabinet and meet the demands of the demonstrators, who have been spurred on by the powerful Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr. But Abadi has been hampered by chaotic parliament sessions, where lawmakers have thrown water bottles and punches at one another.

      Oddly, the "firebrand cleric" Sadr (remember when that practically used to be his first name in news reports?) is demanding that...the current hacks running government ministries be replaced with nonpartisan technocrats. "More bean counters in the cabinet!" isn't the usual rallying cry of a populist uprising, but there you have it.

      Needless to say, the sectarian hacks currently in charge have been resisting this change for the past month. In the meantime, Iraq is in chaos. Again.

      The mother jones article ends with the perception managing message that Iraq is in chaos requiring saviours of course- Like the US an company- this is so typical, so contrived- sigh

  3. This whole technocrat thing baffles me and has since about 3 months ago Iran stated they had to redo their government system to be more technocratic (?)
    wtf does that mean?
    Russia has spoken the same gibberish I believe

    It's lost on me
    I see TECH and it immediately brings up images of Wall Street and their TECH bubble scam to further their vision of capitalism
    planned obsolescence

    pardon me, I've had this bug (cold ) so long I'm goofy :)

  4. Oh, and this 'return' information isn't good at all.

    ducks in a row lining up far too neatly.

    Have you seen Erdogan's speeches to the Arab League he is hosting over here ?

    Yesterday, his opening speech
    Erdogan Opening Act

    and this one published today
    Erdogan's History and 'official' history

    and his little weasel PM is right there with him

  5. Hi Penny - Not sure how this fits into all the various kurd groups but this video of a Yezidi military officer on Yezidi media did have some interesting points about Sinjar and surrounding areas as well as the split opinions of Yezidis. So thought you might be interested:

  6. karin and silver palomino
    thanks- going to get back to you both and chekc out links
    for now I wanna throw some updates in the comments section :)

  7. Baghdad has declared a State of Emergency
    according to NATO news

    "A state of emergency was declared when the supporters of influential Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr broke through the area, home to most ministries and foreign embassies including the U.S. embassy"

    Or not? According to Iraqi news!

    "Baghdad Operations Command denied on Saturday imposing a curfew in the capital, Baghdad, while confirmed that everything in under control and pointed out that the General Commander of the Armed Forces Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi ordered the security authorities to confront any attempt to attack on the public property.

    A spokesman for Baghdad Operations, Brigadier General Saad Maan, said in a press statement obtained by, “There is no truth to the presence of a curfew in the capital, Baghdad, as reported by some media,” asserting that, “Things are under control until now.”

  8. Iraqi forces took control of parts of Anbar

    security source, speaking on condition of anonymity, told al-Baghdadia satellite television network that Iraqi government forces took full control of the villages of Khazraj and al-Nowaiem, located more than 140 kilometers (85 miles) West of the capital, Baghdad, following heavy exchanges of gunfire with the ISIL.

    Iraqi troopers also killed an unspecified number of the militants in the process and destroyed a large amount of their munitions.

    Separately, fighters from the Popular Mobilization units brought down an unmanned aerial vehicle operated by ISIL terrorists in the Southern suburbs of Mosul, located some 400 kilometers (250 miles) North of Baghdad, as it was flying over the area and surveying the pro-government fighters.

    Also on Friday, four high-ranking ISIL commanders were killed in a series of airstrikes carried out by the Iraqi Air Force in the country’s Northern province of Kirkuk.

    Jabbar al-Mamouri, a commander of the pro-government Popular Mobilization units, told Arabic-language al-Sumaria satellite television network that the Takfiri terrorists were killed as Iraqi fighter jets targeted the terror group’s key headquarters in the town of Hawijah, located about 282 kilometers (175 miles) North of the capital.

    Mamouri added that the aerial assaults also killed dozens of the commanders’ companions, who had come together for a meeting at the time of the attacks.


      4 commanders of Takfiri terrorists have been killed as the Iraqi warplanes targeted the terror group’s key headquarters in the southwestern district of Hawijah on Friday. Besides, Iraqi forces managed to liberate the villages of Khazraj and Nuwai'am in Anbar province.

      The Takfiri terrorists were killed as the Iraqi warplanes targeted the terror group’s key headquarters in the southwestern district of Hawijah on Friday, Arabic-language al-Sumaria news website reported, quoting Jabbar al-Mamouri, a commander of the pro-government Popular Mobilization Units.

      Mamouri added that the airstrikes also killed dozens of the commanders’ companions, who were at a meeting at the time of the attack.

      Meanwhile, Iraqi fighter jets also killed at least 32 other Daesh terrorists in al-Rashad region and Bashir village in the province.

      Earlier on Friday, Iraqi ground troops backed by the country’s Air Force also killed 91 Daesh Takfiris as the terrorists mounted offensives against the villages of Mahana and Kharbardan, south of the militant-held city of Mosul.

  9. meanwhile western media is reporting that ISIS killed a pile of people, in what looks to be a retaliation attack for Iraq's big win-

    I find longwarjournal and not credible in their reporting of what is happening. I'll bold the reasons why:

    "The Islamic State took responsibility for the killing of dozens of Iraqi security personnel in a suicide assault on a police station in a western Anbar province town which was recently liberated from the jihadist organization.

    The Islamic State claimed the attack on a police station in Kubaysah near Hit in an official statement released on its social media accounts. The statement was obtained and translated by the SITE Intelligence Group.

    “Four immersers from the soldiers of the Islamic State were able to carry out an attack on the Kubaysah police station in western al Anbar,” according to SITE. The group claimed the four-man suicide assault team penetrated security at the police station, and “two of the soldiers of the Caliphate detonated their explosive belts amidst them,” killing “nearly 50 apostates including soldiers and officers.” The other two attackers were said to have “returned safely to their headquarters.”

    Iraqi media has not independently confirmed the report of the attack in Kubaysah. Attacks such as the one claimed by the Islamic State are common in both Iraq and Syria, and occur on a daily basis"

    I suspect that "ISIS" is using the succesful iraqi assaults for propaganda purposes to be pushed through western media outlets- until there is more verification it does appear Iraqi forces dealt a blow to "ISIS" forces.. and the mouthpieces of the intelligence world are spinning


    "On Saturday, a security source in Baghdad province announced, that the followers of the Sadrist Movement have begun withdrawing from the Green Zone in central Baghdad.

    The source reported for, “The protesters began, this evening, to withdraw from the Green Zone.”

    A security source said, earlier today, that the government authorities announced the formation of security detachments to force the withdrawal of demonstrators from both the House of Representatives and the headquarters of the General Secretariat of the Council of Ministers."

  11. Penny- just doing some reading from trusted reporters and came across a couple interesting background pieces on Iraqi Kurdistan and Gorran:
    From Andre Vltchek based in Lebanon but covers the entire global south, a report of his last visit to KRG in Feb. 2016:

    Stanislav Ivanov from last fall about the different kurdish political parties and the rivalries with Baghdad:
