Kerry determines IS committing genocide in Iraq, Syria
The Obama Administration is FINALLY admitting that, no duh, ISIS is committing awful atrocities and possibly even “genocide” in Syria! No kidding?!
Note the dates and timestamps on the stories.
Syria’s ambassador to the UN says Russian forces ‘redeploying’, labels opposition chief a ‘terrorist
Whoopsie! I think someone let the cat out of the bag perhaps? Russia may be pulling back some of their ground troops but if anyone thinks we’re going back to pre October 2015 conditions in the Middle East they are sorely mistaken. Russia is not leaving or going anywhere.
Putin: Russia may deploy forces back to Syria ‘in mere hours’ if necessary
We may as well take it straight from Russia themselves. Yes, they can redeploy at the drop of a hat. I think there is some kind of feint and chess move going on here that I am not sophisticated enough to fully figure out although I think we have at least one clue here:
Russia supplied weapons to Iraqi Kurds
In my opinion I think this Kurdish situation has something to do with the Russian posturing change.
Think “proxy war.” Think “attrition.” Think “enemy of my enemy is my friend” so why not give Erdogan’s biggest bane…he’s obsessed with the Kurds…a nice boost?
This was another concept that was suggested that the Americans should have done to have the Kurds operate against ISIS incidentally. The Kurds are not perfect but I’d rather deal with them any day of the week vs ISIS, wouldn’t you?
Russia has never gotten past the incidents with Erdogan in the last several months from the shot down airplane on through. There is more than one way to skin a cat and we must never underestimate or forget that Putin is extremely shrewd and patient. Erdogan’s recent actions including taking over the media have been autocrat and despot 101 and I’m hardly trying to cast the Kurds as white knight saints, either. This is going to get ugly but ultimately I expect the loser to be Erdogan. The day that Russian airliner went down was the end for him.
That Kurd weapon story happened in Iraq and I want to be very specific here since I’m making a leap and I admit it here. Since “Iraq” essentially doesn’t exist any more and unless I’m really nuts a Kurd is a Kurd… is this really a reach to think that perhaps Russia has been or will also throw the Kurds giving Erdogan his headaches a bone, too?
Amid Russia’s withdrawal, ISIS announces the killing of Russian military adviser in Syria
I think we can expect Russia’s redeployment sooner rather than later.
Uber driver says iPhone app possessed him during deadly Michigan shooting spree
Maybe? We go down a lot of rabbit trails here that range from MKULTRA and mind control concepts on through but it really doesn’t matter. It was an evil and demonic act no matter how we got there.
More than likely: He’s building up for his insanity plea.
