Middle East Digest

Middle East Digest

Iraq

The embassy of Iran is being attacked in Iraq.  Of course this could be because of underlying tensions between Sunni and Shiite Muslims but it is more likely that this is agitation against Iran by Western powers.

Iran

It is surely not a "coincidence" that  anti-government protests have also erupted in Iran at the same time as the Iranian embassy is attacked in Iraq.   This seems coordinated and one suspects the hand of CIA supported MEK stirring up internal trouble in Iran.  The Iranian authorities have brutally put down the protests which is to be expected.   Of course this allows the West to virtue signal about the despotic Iranian regime suppressing its freedom loving people but we suspect the hand of Ayatollah Mike. After all, things are rarely what they seem in the Middle East and anyone who believes the MSM is being spoon fed lies.  Apparently, the Iranians have acquired "new  (improved) centrifuges" and will have nuclear weapons within the next few months.  We know that this is true because it has been reported by the Gatestone institute with the full approval of its member John Bolton.  It looks like war with Iran is imminent because their other measures (sanctions, protests etc) are not working.

Israel

As we know, the Trump Administration again demonstrated its subservience to Israel by giving away the Palestinian West Bank.  It is dangerous for the US to normalize illegal Jewish settlements as it allows Israel’s extreme right-wing government to single-handedly determine the fate of the Palestinian people. Netanyahu has been indicted for bribery and this makes him extremely dangerous and more likely to instigate a war.

In the meantime the Holocaust takes on the dimensions of a leftist religious cult.  It is a creed that is dogmatic and must therefore not be questioned. Moreover, suffering and genocide belong exclusively to the Jewish people as no one else  has ever suffered.  We must look to Jerusalem and the Jewish people to develop our spirituality and expunge ourselves of our in-built racism.

Pro-Iran Gunmen 'Shooting Protesters'

The following article offers commentary on the protests in Iraq. Paid snipers killing both the security forces and the protesters.  The article suggests that Iran is behind the killings, however, we classify it as FAKE NEWS.  The article in question is by Patrick Cockburn (October 7, 2019) and called;  Death Toll in Iraq Soars as Pro-Iran Gunmen 'Shooting Protesters'  http://www.unz.com/pcockburn/death-toll-in-iraq-soars-as-pro-iran-gunmen-shooting-protesters/

Mission Accomplished

Before we look at the article perhaps a bit of "back grounding" and a gentle reminder why we have the mess in the first place.  Just two weeks ago I completed reading the "Green Zone".   You have probably heard of the movie with Jason Bourne and the hunt for the WMD.   The movie is of course fictional but the story-line was conceived from a screenplay written by Brian Helgeland, based on a 2006 non-fiction book Imperial Life in the Emerald City by journalist Rajiv Chandrasekaran. The book documented life within the Green Zone in Baghdad during the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Drawing on interviews and first hand experience the book demonstrates the absurdity, incompetence, cronyism and downright criminality involved by the US-led Coalition Provisional Authority. One critic calls it, "a tragic tale of naivety,hubris, waste and wilful ignorance".

Following 9/11, Dick Cheney was instrumental in providing a primary justification for a renewed war against Iraq. Cheney helped shape Bush's approach to the "War on Terror".  Cheney is the poster boy for neoconservative hubris. A member of the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA) he was also formerly the CEO of Halliburton.

Christian Bale recently portrayed  him in an autobiographical movie.  At the awards he "Thanked SATAN" for giving him inspiration for portraying Cheney.  The criminality, arrogance and stupidity of these people is rightly represented by the likes of Cheney.

 

This is what "freedom" looks like

The neoconservatives still refuse to admit to any mistakes.    In the famous words of Shrub "Mission Accomplished"

 

However, all the "gloating" aside on how easy it was to destroy and kill people with superior technology it will suffice to look at these slides and remind ourselves what a "liberated" Iraq looks like.

Baghdad Before After
https://www.slideshare.net/Peety/baghdad-before-after

This should make the warmongers hang their heads in shame.

 

 

Debunking the Story

After all that has happened we would say that the Iraqi people had the right to protest - especially the disenfranchised youth.  But who is killing both the protesters and the police?  The article (and the MSM) would have us believe that it is IRAN. Here are the facts:

  1. The current unrest in Iraq began a week ago after a prominent general was removed from his post
  2. US gave a travel warning for Iraq one week before the protests
  3. Iraqi Government supportive of Iran
  4. Location of protests near area where Iranians make cross border pilgrimage for up coming holy days

 

Perhaps the best articles for debunking the scenario are:

(His twitter page is worth a visit. Here is an article that takes a detailed look at Iran’s military capabilities: https://viableopposition.blogspot.com/2019/06/irans-military-strength-2019-edition.html  )

Precedent for false flags

Lest we forget, we already have a precedent with the Ukrainian (CIA) coup.   The protestors were fired on from nearby roofs by "unknown" snipers.  The Ukraine snipers fired at both police and protesters. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-11-17/another-false-flag-terror-admission-snipers-ukraine-%E2%80%9Cprotests%E2%80%9D

Same play book?

 

Conclusion

The Unz review is usually pretty good but this story looks like propaganda.  This article seeks to blame Iran and the Iraqi Government.  This is "blow-back" because the US actually allowed Iraqis to vote. The majority Shiite population voted for an Iraqi government sympathetic to Iran.  Oh dear, if only they had left Saddam in power, at least he suppressed the Shiites.  Well I suppose you can't fix neocon stupid. Seems like even Satan has his limitations.  The internet has been taken out in this area, so we have no way to confirm anything but it appears the current government of Iraq is under siege.  With Turkey kicking the USA out of Northern Syria it seems that Iraq has similar ideas (removing the US).  Is the current government opposing US perpetual occupation?  Perhaps that is why we are seeing protests and another regime change is on the cards.

To prove he wasn't chicken (now that is a good one)

First we want to show some of the Orange genius' tweets before we go to the response by neoconservative Zionist senator and John McCain clone Lindsay Graham.  After which we offer a few comments.

 

An aside- Putin and the Jews

P.S. The Trump tweet above about ISIS is BS.  Russia and the SDF got rid of ISIS.  The US (at the very least) turned a blind eye. The only ones who benefited from the ISIS  chaos was the USA and Israel because they wanted to over-throw  Syria.  Sorry boys, you have been out smarted by Putin.  However, even Putin keeps the Jews onside. He knows who wields the power:

Putin invites Jews to Russia - https://www.bitchute.com/video/f3dgLDOj51yA/

Putin - "Anti-Semites always blame Jews for their own failures." - https://www.bitchute.com/video/AGQkrrOC6M9x/

However.....he did kick out the Jewish bankers and Jewish globalists:

http://Vladimir Putin to George Soros: Thank God we kicked you out of Russia

 

Putin Bans Rothschilds From Russia

 

So, Putin differentiates between ordinary Jews and their religion (many orthodox Jews do no support Zionism) and megalomaniac psychopaths.  Who would have thought?

The Law of unintended consequences?

Those who are critical of Trump conveniently forget that it was Obama that created the mess.   Moreover, what was Trump supposed to do?   Turkey is a NATO ally (LOL).   The situation is probably best summed up by some anonymous comments from zh:

"Turkey is NATO's second largest standing military, and controls the absolutely critical Bosporus straits. The alternative would be Turkey withdrawing from NATO and the Black Sea becoming a Russian lake. Geopolitics overshadows regional genocides every time.Sorry Kurds, but the writing was on the wall since at least 2017--when the Kurds in Iraq were abandoned. Should have made a deal with the Syrian government to transfer control of the land in exchange for a greater autonomy and more say in the direction of the country--as was offered several times.There's probably a last ditch chance to give the Russians a call and see if that Sweetheart deal can still be arranged before the Turkish tanks roll in. Will see in the next 48hrs I'm sure".

 

About the only thing Trump could do was stand down and it might be a good idea to "bring the boys home" (not going to happen) after all  the US has been at war for 224 years out of the 241 years it has existed!!!  Another interesting comment:

"Excellent. US troops don't end up being used as cover for a Turkish attack, allowing Russia to blunt Erdogan's assault on Syrian territory. The Kurds, meanwhile, have to do what they should have done from the start - accept Assad's offer of coming back under Syrian control/protection, in return for some autonomy. Bit by bit, Syria is becoming whole".

But this must be comment of the year:

"Mind you, I am not advocating support to the Kurd: That US support only served perceived US interests in terms of if we can't have Iraq/Syria nobody will and US will protract chaos there. Just read chapter "Introduction" of Brzezinki's "The Grand Chessboard, American Primacy & Its Geostrategic Imperatives (1997)":

Eurasia is thus the chessboard on which the struggle for global 
primacy continues to be played, and that struggle involves geostrategy—
the strategic management of geopolitical interests. It is noteworthy that
as recently as 1940 two aspirants to global power, Adolf Hitler and 
Joseph Stalin, agreed explicitly (in the secret negotiations of November
of that year) that America should be excluded from Eurasia. Each realized
that the injection of American power into Eurasia would preclude his 
ambitions regarding global domination. Each shared the assumption that
Eurasia is the center of the world and that he who controls Eurasia 
controls the world.

And more:

But in the meantime, it is imperative that no Eurasian
challenger emerges, capable of dominating Eurasia and
 thus also of challenging America.

So forget about democracy, human rights and other window dressing: it is simply about the zero sum power game called HEGEMONY. Always nice to be able to have your policies confirmed by the likes of Stalin and Hitler.

Trumpenstein Must be Destroyed!

 

Good  Article on the Unz: Trumpenstein Must be Destroyed! 

by C.J. Hopkins • October 4, 2019Also look at Comments section (under secondElijah)

http://www.unz.com/chopkins/trumpenstein-must-be-destroyed/

 

 

This looks like it will get very serious:

Meanwhile in the Middle East

Turkey to Carry Out Military Air and Ground Op in Syria, East of the Euphrates - Erdogan
https://sputniknews.com/middleeast/201910051076969083-turkey-to-carry-out-military-air-and-ground-op-east-of-euphrates-in-syria-erdogan/

Turkey threatens to invade the northern Kurdish enclave of Syria.  The Kurds are American allies and American troops are in the region.  Both Turkey and the USA are NATO allies.  Go figure because I can't.

Also, rioting and violence in Iraq.  I thought Iraq had been "liberated" from Saddam at least a decade ago and was enjoying the fruits of freedom and prosperity?  The neoconservatives told me, so it must be true. Apparently large parts of Iraq still have no electricity or water supply due to corruption and incompetence.   It is a bad state of affairs when the people prefer a despotic mad man to democracy but I am starting to see their point.

Martial Law Unfolding In Iraq: 30 Protesters Shot, Internet Blackout, 24-Hour Curfews

https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/martial-law-unfolding-iraq-20-protesters-killed-internet-blackout-24-hour-curfews

 

Just make sure you don't show the Iraqi riots on TV (the French yellow vests are still protesting) then it is not really happening.  The only people who riot against the government are in communist countries like Hong Kong (LOL). People that live in democracies know that they can vote out bad politicians (LOL).   They know that the "will of the people" such as Brexit is respected (LOL).  They know that reform of the financial system is possible (LOL).   It is a good thing that we live in democracies and not in a monopolistic crony corporate financial system because otherwise we might conclude that they we are already living under fascism.
