Rice and Tillerson- Bookends for the regional remake?
|Interesting that he shared the stage at Stanford with Condoleeza Rice. She of the "birth pangs of a new middle east" fame. I've quoted her many times here at the blog.|
Some excerpts from his prepared speech. Undoubtedly carefully crafted.
“United States will maintain military presence in Syria, focused on ensuring ISIS cannot re-emerge,” Tillerson said. “Ungoverned spaces, especially in conflict zones, are breeding grounds for ISIS and other terrorist organizations … The fight against ISIS is not over (…) Similarly, we must persist in Syria to thwart al-Qaida, which still has substantial presence and base operations in northwest Syria.”
“Once Assad is gone from power, the United States will gladly encourage the normalization of economic relations between Syria and other nations,” Tillerson said. “This process will take time. But we’re patient in the departure of Assad and in the establishment of new leadership.
Relinking some previous posts.
One from as far back as 2011 mentioning the Kurdish wild card as it pertained to Syria.
As I mentioned in the previous post, some of the Kurds have substantial military ties to Israel.
I wonder just how much of a role those Kurds tied to Israel have already been engaged in the destruction and destabilization of Syria?
Then I come across this today!
From Michael Weiss of the Henry(Scoop) Jackson Society.
You have been introduced to the Henry (Scoop) Jackson Society in previous posts. Interesting to note, the agenda being pushed:Will Kurds Determine Syria's Fate?
Turkey & Syria
Last week there was an article in WSJ One of many in the WSJ, but this one really caught my attention.
Headline: Kurds Fight Islamic State to Claim a Piece of Syria
Sub-heading: A Kurdish paramilitary group will help the U.S. expel Islamic militants in exchange for a stretch of northern Syria to build its vision of utopia
Oh, does anyone find it odd that the US can just give another nations territory away? Anyone think that strange? Of course Israel sees this as perfectly acceptable because they were given land inhabited by other people. Northern Syria is not just occupied by Sunni Muslim Kurds. There are others resident in those areas. Do they want to live in this Utopia? Is anyone considering them?
Part 2- Kurd/ISIS Symbiosis - The Impending Destruction of Turkey- November 2014
Many suspect that Erdogan supports ISIS? But does he?Kurdistan: NATO's New Southern Flank- November 2014
I mean, yes, support of ISIS could explain why he refused to join the coalition against ISIS?
But, I don't think it does. With all the new information I have come across lately it seems vastly more plausible that Erdogan would not join the fight against ISIS because he knows, as I have written, that the fight against ISIS is a fight to create Kurdistan. And that ISIS is a pretext created by the West specifically for that reason. In other words Turkey is not going to participate in it's own downfall
If all goes well for NATO, Israel and the Kurds. Turkey will be supplanted as NATO's Southern Flank. It seems to be just a matter of time.....I hold the opinion that Turkish leadership has become aware of what looks to be it's impending betrayal
“Especially if the export of Kurdish oil and gas through Rojava and the Mediterranean Sea is implemented. In this situation, Kurds must be politically and economically independent. Now, Kurds have a good opportunity and they must play their political cards wisely,” added Penjweni.Iran
“Kurds must be united in their national interests to protects Kurdistan and Kurdish people,” concluded Penjweni.

The seeds of an Iranian destabilization are being sown-April 2016: Iran's Forgotten Kurds Step Up The Struggle- So the Media Promotion Begins
All the while the destruction of Turkey by Kurdish forces is on full display, for those with eyes to see.
Consider this news item the beginning of your war mongering, perception managing, main stream media indoctrination to explain why Iran is bad. Oppressive. Tyrannical. And needs to be attacked by NATO force for Sykes Picot 2 and Israel 2.0/ Kurdistan. That is if you allow yourself to be manipulated and indoctrinated?
