Turkey, Russia & Iran Build Anticipation In Advance of Ceasefire

Interesting the news of the choir singing from the same hymnal yesterday.
 Even though the dis/misinfo (that website never proved what it claimed) msm /alt media chose to only focus on Erdogan’s ISIS statement.. In order to manipulate their audiences with some ridicule or other ad hominem type statement.

Me? I see things just a bit differently.  Erdogan's statement cut a much wider swathe then just a mention of US support to ISIS. His statement  was coordinated with statements coming out of Russia and Iran on the very same day. Yesterday. All three nations making statements pointing out US support for terrorists and terrorism. It seems sensible that all statements made have something to do with that still being hammered out ceasefire agreement between Russia, Iran and Turkey.

Written about in two posts: 

 Tuesday, December 20, 2016: Russia,Iran,Turkey: Guarantors of the Moscow Declaration

Monday December 26/2016 A Ceasefire In Syria? - Not if the US & co Have Their Way!

What has trickled out today regarding the ceasefire, though quite limited, has one aspect which I believe ties to the tripartite statements made yesterday.
"The agreement does not include terrorist organizations such as Al Nusra Front and Islamic State (IS, former ISIS/ISIL), which would not be part of the deal, Anadolu says. A source close to the Russian Foreign Ministry told that Kurdish militia units known as YPG are also excluded from the ceasefire"
The terrorist organizations of Al Nusra Front/IS/ISIS/ISIL and the YPG/PKK are excluded from the ceasefire- Which means they are named terrorists and can be gotten rid of.

Coordinated Statements:


“Turkish President Receb Tayyip Erdogan said he has evidence that U.S.-led coalition forces give support to terrorist groups including the Islamic State and Kurdish militant groups YPG and PYD, he said on Tuesday, APA reports quoting Reuters
"They were accusing us of supporting Daesh (Islamic State)," he told a press conference in Ankara.

"Now they give support to terrorist groups including Daesh, YPG, PYD. It's very clear. We have confirmed evidence, with pictures, photos and videos," he said”
Undoubtedly Turkey has this evidence because quite frankly, they've told the US previously they had this evidence (mentioned here at the blog) and quite honestly the evidence can be found by simply reading the many media reports, lots of which are posted here.

On the same day...  Russia:
Russia has called a US decision to ease restrictions on arming Syrian opposition groups a "hostile act" that would directly threaten Russian military forces in Syria.

Maria Zakharova, foreign ministry spokeswoman in Moscow, said on Tuesday the policy change set out in the annual defence policy bill signed into law by US President Barack Obama last week, would lead to weapons ending up "in the hands of jihadists with whom the sham 'moderate' opposition have long acted jointly".

"Such a decision is a direct threat to the Russian air force, to other Russian military personnel, and to our embassy in Syria, which has come under fire more than once. We therefore view the step as a hostile one," Zakharova said in a statement.
And then Iran:
Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan has slammed Washington's lack of seriousness in the fight against the Daesh terrorist group, saying the US has nurtured terrorists itself and now wants them to stay in the Middle East.

“The Western coalition is of a formal nature, they have no real intention to fight either in Syria or in Iraq. We don’t see any readiness on their part to play a truly useful and meaningful role in fighting Daesh, because it’s them who have raised terrorists and they are interested in keeping them there, Dehqan said in an interview with RT published on Tuesday.
All statements are in agreement- The US supports terrorists. And is not serious about fighting them. I'll be paying attention to the ceasefire agreement details as more come out.

Turkey, Iran and Russia are building up interest and likely causing concern to certain parties
