US deployment to Shingal, correctly SINJAR, 'brings hope' to Ezidis, blocks Iran’s 'corridor' to Syria: Mayor
The R2P stuff is just nonsense- this isn't about bringing hope to anyone except for the 5 eyes imperialists and their plotting
– An Ezidi official said on Saturday that the presence of US troops on Mount Sinjar (Shingal) "brings hope of stability" to the thousands of displaced members of the religious minority that will allow them to return to their homes and also prevent the area from becoming "an Iranian corridor to Syria."
About 15 US military vehicles arrived on Friday at the top of Mount Shingal with the apparent intention of establishing a military base.
US troops arrive on Mount Shingal to set up military base: Deputy Mayor
US forces have reached the top of Mount Sinjar (Shingal) to establish a new a military base, a Kurdish Ezidi official said on Friday.
“Today, 15 military vehicles of US troops arrived on top of Mount Shingal and stationed themselves near Mira peak on the mountain,” Jalal Khalo, deputy mayor in Shingal, told Kurdistan 24.
The US forces are preparing to build a military base on the mountain, Khalo added.

Khalil also mentioned that their presence ( US forces) in SINJAR /Shingal is meant to prevent IS fighters from crossing the border between Iraq and Syria, and also to “prevent Hashd al-Shaabi militias from controlling the mountain or blocking the area so it becomes an Iranian corridor to Syria, which could eventually lead to a regional war.”
Khalil hoped that the stability in Shingal would later allow Kurdish Peshmerga forces to return to the area and from a joint administration of the region with Iraqi forces, since it is one of the territories disputed by the federal government and the Kurdistan Region.Sinjar and it's importance to remaking the region has been discussed on many occasions here at the blog- The official narrative regarding Sinjar struck me as odd back further then 2015. In fact as early as 2014 this blogger was NOT A Believer.
Friday, November 13, 2015- Sinjar: Creating a Crucial Supply Route for KurdIShIS & Annexing Iraqi Territory
This is about redrawing the borders of the middle east- Weakening certain states. Strengthening others. This is about ethnic cleansing. Displacing persons.
You want simple narratives? The war mongering media and plenty of other so called alt media sites will spoon feed you all the drivel you can stomache.
I am way past believing there is any real fight between the alphabet Kurds and ISIS.
Both brands are getting their support, munitions, arms and everything else from NATO/US/Israel. Knowing that to be true, I cannot believe the bogus narrative, from the war mongering, perception managing media, regarding any real fight between Kurds and ISIS.
Couldn't help but notice back in 2015 I'd suggested that perhaps Saudi Arabia was going to get their remake as well
Hell maybe even Saudi Arabia. One never knows how far war mongers can go!
Clearly what is going on in Sinjar has zip to do with fighting ISIS. The US is aiding the Kurds in their annexation of Iraqi territory- Same as in Syria. Same as will be done in Turkey. The US is redrawing the borders of the ME, using ISIS as the pretext, as has been suggested here for a very long time! As the US aids the Kurds in their land thievery and nation destruction they are also ensuring a supply route to continue this redraw. Complete with ethnic cleansing and massive displacement that will see yet more movement towards Europe- As intended!
Long term readers here may recall I questioned the entire Sinjar narrative as presented via the war mongering media, with very good reason
Monday, August 11, 2014: The Yazidi genocide narrative strains credulity- No fly zone by stealth
All these years later? I wasn't wrong.
I do however believe that Islamist rebels are ensconced in refugee camps built by Turkey in that area and that the US and France and UK are dropping supplies to them. Supplies in the form of weapons, lots of weapons. Food. Water. Communications devices. Based on the information at hand, I suspect these ISIS troops are prepping for a push into Syria. And they will have air cover thanks to the USA
A no fly zone, by stealth. Hope I am wrong. I certainly want to be. I hate to think of the situation in Syria worsening.
I want Syria to remain the independent nation it has shown itself to be.
This was exactly as I'd suggested one route that PKK or KurdIShIS used to enter into Syria! - Stealthily done. Under cover of 'humanitarian' concern.
So called ISIS also entered Syria in a more open, attention grabbing way, through the desert with that Georgian fellow- name escapes me, but, his story is also here!
