Iran’s Kurds Now Growing Restless?? Kurdish Mercenaries Attack Iranian Gov. Officials

Iran’s Kurds Now Growing Restless

Now Growing Restless??

May 5 2016: Kurds on the Attack in Iran- As Predicted .....

April 17 2016 : Iran's Forgotten Kurds Step Up the Struggle- So The Media Promotion Begins

August 07/2015: P5+1 is a distraction. Early Seeds of Iranian destabilization cross the Turkish border

Guerrillas in Iranian Kurdistan attacked government officials this weekend. The New York Times reports:
    Gunmen ambushed a car carrying a lawmaker and a local governor on Sunday in Iran’s restive Kurdish region, state news media reported. Both men were wounded, and the driver and a veterinarian traveling with them were killed.

    The lawmaker, Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh, a member of a key foreign council in Iran’s Parliament, escaped with minor injuries, according to the Mizan news agency.

    Mr. Falahatpisheh and the others were traveling in a sport utility vehicle near Iran’s border with Iraq, apparently without security forces protecting them. As they were driving near the county of Dalahu, four men fired on their car. The governor, Faramarz Asghari, was hit several times and was reported to be in critical condition.

    In recent weeks, Iran’s Kurdish regions have seen an upsurge in violence, with several clashes erupting between Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps and Kurdish fighters belonging to the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan and Pejak, an offshoot of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, better known as P.K.K. According to official reports and statements by the groups, dozens of people have been killed on each side, although none of those claims could be verified.

It’s worth remembering that Iran is, as the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia were, a multinational, multi-confessional state and only just over half the citizens are of Persian ethnic origin. The real threat to Iran from the violence in Syria and Iraq is not that a jihadi Sunni army ( Actually that is one threat, because Kurds are Sunni Muslim)will storm the frontier, but that the chaos and disintegration will spread across the border. With tribal and ethnic violence on the east (Afghanistan), to the north (Russia’s Caucasus, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia are all wrapped up in various frozen and unfrozen conflicts), to the south (in both Iranian and Pakistani Baluchistan, ethnic insurgents are active), and to the west in Iraq, Iran’s neighborhood is not a healthy one right now.
Indeed Iran's neighbourhood is not a 'healthy one" One could say it's been dis-eased, intentionally
"Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia":  Recall this? Nagorno Karabakh or Why I'm ignoring the Panama Papers.
“We should understand that if this conflict grows Georgia will be involved. Were talkin' Iran, Turkey, Armenia, Azerbaijan (also).... This doesn't benefit Russia one little bit.
As for the US .... better a war there, then on American territory (Certainly, I want no part of this and wish Canada would mind it's own business!)"
Currently, a mix of ideology (militant Shi’ism against a hostile world), strong domestic security forces, and the clerical and religious networks loyal to the ruling mullahs help hold the country together. But the revolutionary ideology is increasingly hollow, the security and religious networks corrupt and unpopular, and restlessness among both Persian and non-Persian Iranians is growing.
Iran’s ruling authorities are strong, clever and determined. But they are not without their worries.

Recall just last week this news?: Attack on Baghdad: Attack on Camp Liberty- MEK Terrorists aka Dissidents

 "Keep all that information under your hat for when the destabilization of Iran really heats up. It has already begun- But once Hillary wins the Presidency, and she will, this dissident group will be front and centre- And the media will be spinning about them too!"
 The destabilization of Iran has just kicked up a few notches!

National Leaders & the Deep State: NATO vs Non-NATO Nation State Interests


  1. Comment in the malc x on this topics. Spammed. Former Saudi Intel chief just attended Iran opposition meet up in pariis along with newt.

  2. anonymous: I got it out of spam and have moved it here
    thanks ! this is the direction I had intended to get to over the week end, but, didn't

    The AWACs are up (after being deployed months ago) as US declaring it will not allow Russia no fly zone to disrupt its plans. Rojava? As the Iraqi Militias move north toward Mosul? Is this the no fly declaration into increased Aleppo shelling and alleged US-Russia cooperation (no where evident least of whcih Ukraine as Obama drops in on Spanish Aegis port)?

    "“We will provide AWACS support and the plan is to have them to flying over international airspace and Turkey and that will allow us to look into airspace in Iraq and Syria,” NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg told a news conference July 9. “This is a clear signal of our resolve to help tackle terrorism.”

    IFX: NATO won't tolerate Russia's no fly zones affecting its areas, interests - source

    So was the Russia helicopter shoot down Palmyra (recall reports of new Russian base there in shadow of the nefarious and incomprehensible (rogue) activity around Jordanian border including the alleged Intelligence smuggling of weapons?) a message after it was reported with US weapons? As the Chinese are launching live fire missiles in the South China Sea ahead of declaration.

    This of course comes after the Russians did the Armenia deal on extension. (just as US just announced another round of exercises with Georgia post Kerry drooping off a few billion.

    Then Newt Gingrich shows up at a Iranian opposition demonstrations alongside former Saudi Intel chief in wake of Reuters Foundation arrest and the Kurd kills. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad running for re-election after the security council shakeup?

    IFX: ‎ Gorbachev to Interfax: NATO Warsaw Summit's decisions are step toward preparations for hot war

    Notable how the Taiwan missile launch accident fireing was due to a war 'setting". Similar to that Facebook mistake with the Philippine flag indicating it was at war/

    1. saw the news on the AWACS
      also interesting that the US has been training Iraqi fighters in Jordan- not just syrian rebels
      the weapons was another post I never got to...sigh
      much to read- thanks

    2. US rhetoric about rolling back the Iran deal is heavy amidst reports of missile violations and IAEA trace plutonium leaks. Another US deployment after Carter drops in to Baghdad as Iran says will support the unity of Iraq and Syria.

      Coordinating on mosul or warning on the Militias after that Hezbollah announcement on Iraq deployments?

    3. I want to get to Mosul and am in the process of working on it presently--- it feels ominous- always has


    war messaging

  4. It looks to be war messaging
    Where did the bombers leave from, I wonder?

    "Among the targets identified and confirmed through intelligence channels in recent days, the ministry said a large IS field camp, three arms depots, three tanks and a large number of militants have been destroyed in the attack.

    ​All bombers returned safely to airfields after striking Daesh targets in Syria.

    "All planes returned safely and landed in their airfields. In order to ensure flight safety, representatives of the [US-led] international coalition have been notified of the attacks in advance," the ministry underscored."

  5. More messaging

    1. Look at the map. Not an accident that suddenly the Southern corridor is seeing renewed action into the US threats of no fly.

      U.S. has the option of using Precision Guided Munitions (PGM) to damage the runway at Basel al-Assad airfield where Russia bases its aircraft. Doing this at a time when no Russian aircraft are flying would probably not damage any Russian aircraft or kill any Russian personnel. This would guarantee that Russian aircraft would not interfere with the No-Fly Zone.” Options For A Syria No Fly Zone_0.pdf
