The Greater Kurdistan Project and the G20 Summit: Now is the Winter of Their Discontent

by Scott Creighton

While discussions are being held inside the G20 Summit in Hamburg, outside Kurds are taking part in massive demonstrations. Flags of the PKK and YPG are seen moving down the street as thousands of people from all over the world march in opposition to the globalist nature of the summit.

Bijî Şoreşa Rojava” [Long Live Rojava Revolution] slogans are being chanted already in the cortage of the Kurds.

The “Rojava revolution” they are speaking of is in actually a U.S-backed destabilization campaign designed to depopulate part of Syria so it can be claimed by the Kurds as part of Greater Kurdistan, what Condi Rice was referring to all those years ago when she spoke of what was happening in Iraq (after our illegal invasion based on lies) as “the birth pangs of a New Middle East”

No revolution here; just some opportunistic Kurds trying to take advantage of the situation so they can become the next great client state of the U.S., Britain and Israel.

The irony is hard too ignore. The tens of thousands of protesters are out there legitimately opposing globalization and the control the masters of the universe think they can exert on the peoples of the rest of the world but the Kurds themselves, while pretending to be revolutionaries, are hoping to be the beneficiaries of the biggest and most important globalist foreign policy agenda the world has seen since the illegal invasion and occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq.

Meanwhile, inside the summit itself, Greater Kurdistan is shaping up to be one of the biggest topics no body seems to want to report on.

Turkey has a long history of opposing the Greater Kurdistan project. I’ve written about their position many times. Here’s an article from al Monitor from Sept. of 2014 which lays out Turkey’s position quite clearly.

“As far as I can see, the government and the military agree on one very fundamental point: They both think that the United States’ strategy in “the fight against the Islamic State (IS)” could lead to the creation of Greater Kurdistan, that is, an independent Kurdish state uniting the Kurds of Turkey, Syria, Iraq and later Iran.

Inevitably, such a state would be carved out on the territories of the said countries. This would mark the demise of the current Middle East...” al Monitor

Hence the “birth pangs of a New Middle East”

As I have written time and time again, Erdogan is clearly opposed to any division of Syria and Iraq in terms of breaking off pieces of either state for the creation of a Kurdish independent nation. He opposes this because he knows any such new state will be incomplete and useless as a world power without the inclusion of a piece of Turkey and Iran to go along with it.

At the G20 summit we find other countries oppose Condi’s new vision including the leader of the host nation who spoke out at the summit on this topic.

“Kurdish regions must remain a part of Iraq, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said during a press conference at the G20 meeting in Hamburg. Staying inside Iraq “is a condition of our support for the Kurds” said Merkel. Iraqi Kurdistan plans to stage an independence referendum later this year, which has not been recognized by Baghdad.” RT

No one could possibly confuse German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Recep Erdogan as being the best of friends. They have been clashing on numbers of topics as of late, but this one they seem to being seeing eye-to-eye on.

“We do not support the idea of a divided Iraq, and a referendum would hurt the peace and stability in the country,” Erdogan said in Hamburg. “If division starts in the north, it would extend to Turkmens, Arabs and there can even be a sectarian-based division between Shias and Sunnis.”

Erdogan emphasized that Turkey will not allow a Kurdish state to be established in northern Syria. RT

Iran also opposes the upcoming Kurdish independence referendum in Iraq saying that state needs to remain whole for the good and stability of the entire region.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran opposes some murmurs about holding a referendum in order to separate one part of Iraq,” said Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in a meeting with visiting Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi in June, adding that Iraq “should stay unified.” al Monitor

Russia, for it’s part, has made glowing statements regarding Turkey and Erdogan at the summit. Perhaps this, along with Merkel’s apparent opposition to the Greater Kurdistan project, signals an end to Condi Rice’s globalist Middle East wet dream.

Of course, dreams die hard when so much money and hegemony are on the line.

“(Sec. of State Rex Tillerson) said that Russia, as an ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad and a participant in the conflict, “has a responsibility to ensure that the needs of the Syrian people are met and that no faction in Syria illegitimately re-takes or occupies areas liberated from ISIS’ or other terrorist groups’ control.” Tillerson added that Russia has “an obligation to prevent any further use of chemical weapons of any kind by the Assad regime.” Russian Insider

While folks over at Moon of Alabama mistakenly praise the Iraqi death-squads for retaking Mosul, claiming it marks “the end of ISIS in Iraq”, over here we understand that “ISIS” in Iraq and “ISIS” in Syria are two distinctly different things. Have been since the beginning.

I will try to explain it one more time.

President Peace Prize (Obama) was riding high on his non-interventionist pledge even though he turned 2 wars into 7 and killed with impunity with his weapon of choice, the cowardly drone strike.

When forced to pull troops out of Iraq (due to an agreement signed by President Bush) the opposition in that country took off and protests against our puppet regime and the neoliberalised government took to the streets where they were summarily gunned down in a particularly brutal fashion by the dictator we installed to run the post-Saddam Iraq we made.

When that happened the General Military Council for Iraqi Revolutionaries was formed, largely under the leadership of former soldiers and generals from the Baathists who used to work for Saddam.

At the same time, President Peace Prize saw he needed some new pretext to launch more military involvement in Syria. So what they did was create “ISIS”

In Iraq, “ISIS” is a fabrication. Yes there are some terrorists running around like we have in many countries, but for the most part, what we and the new puppet dictator are fighting over there is the GMCIR and the revolution to retake their country from our clutches. But of course, Obama’s progressive base would NEVER have approved of him re-engaging in Iraq to keep the oil fields and central bank in the hands of his globalist masters, so they created tons of phony beheading videos and British assets staged more and more idiotic “hearts and minds” campaign videos to make the people of this country and Britain believe there was a new boogyman we had to fight over there.

In Syria we hired some more terrorist contractors, called them “ISIS” and used them in two ways:

  1. to clear out and ethnically cleanse certain areas of eastern Syria for the Kurds to take over
  2. to justify bombing campaigns which actually targeted civilian infrastructure rather than “ISIS” fighters which helped “ISIS” achieve the first goal

If you look up “unconventional warfare” you will find both of these kinds of usages of “ISIS”, what you find in Iraq and what you find in Syria, fall under the rubric of “irregular warfare” and it’s quite clear the military leadership at least believes they are legitimate forms of conflict.

Though of course both of them depend on lies and the continuation of those lies by the complicit media in order to maintain credibility in the eyes of the public. So I guess they know not all forms of conflict are legitimate after all.

The problem with those in the alternative community like Moon of Alabama supporting these lies is obvious. It’s the same as when many of them regurgitated the establishment’s lies about Muammar Gaddafi attacking his own people or Bashar al Assad being a ruthless dictator gassing his own people for no apparent reason.

Leaders oppose the upcoming referendum in “Iraqi Kurdistan” because, for one thing, the Kurds have already ethnically cleansed the areas where they referendum will be held (and they continue to do even more), so the outcome is pretty obvious before it’s even held. Certainly not legal or moral, but obvious no less.

At the same time, leaders of nations like Syria, Turkey and Iran know full well that 1/4 of Greater Kurdistan is useless to the masters of the universe. They need it all or it’s simply not worth doing.

Maybe that’s why some writers out there are already suggesting President Trump is going to abandon the project altogether.

Erdogan is still out there telling the world that hiring terrorists to make nations is a bad idea to start with. And whatever you might think of the man personally, it’s kind of hard to disagree with him on that point.

Neocons are also starting to hesitate on the idea of a Barzani-led Greater Kurdistan. Though they don’t give up on the idea altogether. It was their baby after all.

Barzani is heading to Brussels and then D.C. to grovel and beg to be allowed to 1. hold the referendum in areas he’s already ethnically cleansed and 2. to be allowed to remain in power as they create Barzani Kurdistan.

Establishment hack “journalists” are doing their part to try to keep the dream alive in spite of what’s happening in Germany right now. The jist of that “news” piece is that the Kurds are the most sycophantic people in the Middle East and would therefore make great allies. This is a theme we see developing across the international media spectrum… as if it were part of some PR company’s policy roll-out plan. (see here as well)

Back in late June, John Bolton, neocon war-monger extraordinaire (and globalist partner of Condi Rice for that matter) made the situation very clear as he said we needed to give up on plans to cut a deal with Russia and Iran and make ready for Greater Kurdistan. Clearly he already understood the meetings at the G20 might not go the way the masters of the universe wanted them to.

The headlines out of Syria are eye-catching: There are signs the Assad government may be planning another chemical attack… The probability of direct military confrontation between the U.S. and Russia has risen…

Instead of reflexively repeating President Obama’s errors, the Trump administration should undertake an “agonizing reappraisal,” in the style of John Foster Dulles

Iraq’s Kurds have de facto independence and are on the verge of declaring it de jure. They fight ISIS to facilitate the creation of a greater Kurdistan. Nonetheless, the Kurds, especially in Syria and Turkey, are hardly monolithic. Not all see the U.S. favorably. In Syria, Kurdish forces fighting ISIS are linked to the Marxist PKK in Turkey. They pose a real threat to Turkey’s territorial integrity, even if it may seem less troubling now that President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s plans have turned so profoundly contrary to the secular, Western-oriented vision of Kemal Atatürk” John Bolton

Like I wrote before, these war-mongerers are not going quietly into the night when it comes to their plans for a New Middle East. Britain wants it. The U.S. wants it. Israel wants it. The wishes of Germany, Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Iran and Russia simply don’t factor into the equation.

Nor do those of the American people either. Because if they did, they would simply lay out their nation-building plan and let the people who will pay for it and fight for it decide whether it happens or not. Certainly they know the outcome of that potential referendum long before they suggest we hold one… so it’s safe too say, the vast majority of the Americans, British and Israelis don’t want it either.

We know what happens when the possibility of peace in Syria raises it’s head over there: we accidentally kill it along with refugees, UN aid workers and Syrian soldiers.

At the G20 it seems a lasting peace just might be on the horizon and the Greater Kurdistan project might be still borne.

But of course, we know what happens in the minds of such men when dreaded peace looms on the horizon.

Shakespeare knew what such men think at times like these.

Richard III ; Gloucester

Now is the winter of our discontent
Made glorious summer by this sun of York;
And all the clouds that lour’d upon our house
In the deep bosom of the ocean buried.
Now are our brows bound with victorious wreaths;
Our bruised arms hung up for monuments;
Our stern alarums changed to merry meetings,
Our dreadful marches to delightful measures.
Grim-visaged war hath smooth’d his wrinkled front;
And now, instead of mounting barded steeds
To fright the souls of fearful adversaries,
He capers nimbly in a lady’s chamber
To the lascivious pleasing of a lute.
But I, that am not shaped for sportive tricks,
Nor made to court an amorous looking-glass;
I, that am rudely stamp’d, and want love’s majesty
To strut before a wanton ambling nymph;
I, that am curtail’d of this fair proportion,
Cheated of feature by dissembling nature,
Deformed, unfinish’d, sent before my time
Into this breathing world, scarce half made up,
And that so lamely and unfashionable
That dogs bark at me as I halt by them;
Why, I, in this weak piping time of peace,
Have no delight to pass away the time,
Unless to spy my shadow in the sun
And descant on mine own deformity:
And therefore, since I cannot prove a lover,
To entertain these fair well-spoken days,
I am determined to prove a villain
And hate the idle pleasures of these days.
Plots have I laid, inductions dangerous,
By drunken prophecies, libels and dreams,
To set my brother Clarence and the king
In deadly hate the one against the other:
And if King Edward be as true and just
As I am subtle, false and treacherous,
This day should Clarence closely be mew’d up,
About a prophecy, which says that ‘G’
Of Edward’s heirs the murderer shall be.
Dive, thoughts, down to my soul: here
Clarence comes.

Please help keep AE up and running if you can.

I really could use any help you can afford. Things are getting pretty bad

Thank you all so much

  1. the Summit group also refused to accept the US version of climate control …..
    Trump had a bad time.
    Hope those protestors made a lot of noise……!!!

  2. re G-20 (s)
    I have been reflecting on the cities/countries chosen for G-20 events and why. For example; “The (2010 Canadian)weekend violence at the G20 summit started after groups of masked anarchists broke away from a peaceful demonstration against the Group of 20 summit of world leaders. Toronto police used tear gas against the public for the first time ever in 2010 in Canada’s most populous city.

    In 2009, Washington, DC, agreed to pay $13.7 million to settle a class action suit brought by protesters arrested during a demonstration in 2000. The plaintiffs alleged that cops detained nearly 700 people attending an April march against “the prison industrial complex,” which was timed to overlap with an IMF / World Bank meeting.”

    The same “groups of masked anarchists” appear to be active at the Hamburg G-20 conference. In Canada after the lawsuits it is now legal to hold people without charge for extended periods as is the case in the US. I expect Germany will now put in the same regulations, you know, to keep Germany “safe.”

    I think the choice of G-20’s yearly venue is designed to introduce/justify indefinite detention, excessive force, massive restrictions on civil liberties and public gathering and condone police violence in countries that historically are resistant to such tactics.

    I read on one Canadian website that the gang of masked anarchists all wore the same new issue police boots as the police. I think it would be worthwhile for any Hamburg Germany based readers to check out the footwear of the supposed anarchists.

    On Mosul
    Who exactly was/were the rebels holding Mosul??
    Thanks and keep up the great work!

    • the revolution in Iraq started in Mosul. The General Military Council of Iraqi Revolutionaries were based out of there. Kinda like Fallujah back in the day of the first invasion (the 2003 one) it was considered the heart of the resistance. That’s why the complicit media has been telling us for so long to “expect” so many civilian casualties.. because the Iraqi deathsquads were fighting civilians for the most part. yeah, some of the resistance was still around, but not much. We bombed them back into submission. for a while at least.

    • Ever read Mike Palecek’s “Camp America”, Frances?

      It’s a read about the kinds of things you’ve been reflecting on, a “fiction” that might shed some light on how they think, maybe even do, …

  3. Willy, have you read Alison Weir’s Against Our Better Judgment? A must. As for “Britain wants it. The U.S. wants it”, it’s because we have no representation. This is the Greater Israel Project. End of story.
