Every area of population has a right to defend themselves from aggression from forces outwith that area, especially when then aggression from another country.

The Turkish authorities may be retaliating to a perceived threat, but this perceived threat would be from a minority and not the majority of any area. To subject any aggression to the majority should never be allowed.

The World should denounce the Turkish authorities for this illegal act of aggression to a population who have only recently come through many other actions of aggression.

Please allow the population of Afrin and other Kurdish areas to now live in peace.

A women’s army has mobilised to defend the people of the mainly Kurdish-populated Afrin province of northern Syria against the invading Turkish military. This coincides with a call to arms by the international volunteer brigades which, alongside Kurds and their allies, have helped liberate whole swathes of Syria from Daesh (Isis/Isil)

So we go on there has been so much bloodshed, destruction and whole communities put under brutal regimes, so I do hope that this can be resolved peacefully.

The Kurds have, apparently been under the control of a number of forces for many years, be they Turkish, Syrian and now, hopefully, lastly ISIS.

The Kurds need to have a say in how they now go forward, but this should be between the Kurds and Syria and no outside force. If the Kurds ‘want a federal system that would allow regions to rule themselves without central control by the center’. It appears Syria may be agreeable to this and it appears they will be supported by Russia. However, for some reason the US appear to be opposed to this, well that they can be, but they should in no way impose this opinion onto the Kurds and Syrians.

The Western power have far too long imposed their views into areas that should not be theirs to do so, therefore the US needs to back off completely and just concentrate on their own troubles at home.

Eyes on Europe & Middle East

Analysts of Al-Monitor and Kurdistan24 say that Iraqi Kurdistan’s independence referendum has been echoing in Kurdish circles in northern Syria due to nationalistic ties and shared feelings. Kurdish parties are preparing to form a united delegation to negotiate with the Damascus government the formation of a federal state across Syria.

Since the beginning of the year, Syria’s Kurds revealed plans that could ultimately redraw the northern part of the country by linking the Kurdish region of Rojava with the Mediterranean Sea, met with angry reaction from Turkey’s government.

America never learn, but do believe they are the sole masters of the universe and what they do must be right. Trump said he was different, but as we see he is just the same.

Oil is the paymaster and oil has to be obeyed.

Here’s another brilliant little video from the Jimmy Dore Show, which casts further light on the US’ role in spreading the carnage and chaos in Syria. In this clip, the comedian, with his co-hosts Steffi Zamora and Ron Placone, talk about a story which appeared in March, 2016, in the Los Angeles Times. The Pentagon and the CIA are backing different rebel factions in Syria. The Pentagon is backing one bunch as part of their campaign against ISIS, while the CIA is arming another group in order, the paper claimed, to bring Assad to the negotiating table. As Dore points out, this isn’t what the CIA and its government paymasters want. They want to oust Assad altogether. He reminds his viewers how the United States was approached by Saudi Arabia and Qatar several years ago. The two Arab nations offered to pay if America invaded Syria and overthrew Assad…

I did support Gulf War 1 to ensure the liberation of Kuwait and could not understand why the allied forces did not pursue further into Iraq to topple Saddam, So I could have supported the evental removal of Saddam. However I have always been untrusting of Blair, but did rejoice in the overthrow of Saddam, so the rights of all Iraqs could be progressed. But as we were only too aware, after the event, that no constructive plans of operation had been thought through. Blair and Bush by their actions created a vaccum in which allowed the formation of Daesh to be created from some of the forces which had originally,appeared, to support the Bush/Blair initiative.

From this lessons should have been learned, but this did not prevent the removal of Gaddafi in Lybria to create a further vacuum.

it is clear, that the prresiding factor was oil, as Blair and Bush have not taken similar actions in other countries where oil in not a factor, Zimbarbre being only one example.

With the evidence of the Chilcot report and the current state of the Middle East it is amazing that Blair still feels he was justified in his actions and would do it again.

He and Bush are totally responsible for the current state of the Middle East so Blair should be prosecuted as a War Criminal, as accountability should have a bearing on decisions made by persons when they hold positions of responsibility.

The families need closure and while the Chilcot report goes some way with this, the prosecution of Blair would be even more closure.

Blair needs to be made responsible and accountable for his actions and not so glibly make comments that in no way answer his ctitics and the evidence.

Mike over at Vox Political has reblogged a piece from the Guardian by Owen Jones, laying out how damning the Chilcot report is of Tony Blair and his decision to lead the country into war. Owen Jones is a fine journalist, who clearly and accurately explains the issues. I’ve read and quoted from his book Chavs: The Demonisation of the Working Class, which is very good, and has rightly received great praise. He also has another book out The Establishment: Who They Are and How They Get Away with it. I’ve been thinking about that one, but have avoided buying it so far on the grounds that it might make me too furious.

Mike also asks what his readers think of the Iraq War. He asks

Do any of you believe the war was justified, as Ann Clwyd still does (apparently)? Have any of you come to believe that?…

If Blair wants to go to war, let him be the first one to be armed and go into Syria and Ir

Beastrabban\'s Weblog

Mike over at Vox Political has put up a piece today reporting that Tony Bliar has finally crawled out of whatever hole he’s been hiding in for the past few months or years, and has made a speech demanding that the West launch a ground war against ISIS in Syria and Iraq. Not content with his role in destroying an entire nation and turning the region into the mass charnel house it is now, Blair wants to increase the violence and mayhem.

Mike also reminds people about the cycle of commercialised violence he put up earlier to describe the current situation in the Middle East. We launch an attack on the peoples of these countries. Many of the survivors become radicalised. We then sell them arms so that they can launch further attacks on us, for which we retaliate, and the cycle begins again.

Mike cynically – and accurately –…

It began with coalition airstrikes that pounded ISIS positions in three villages until early morning. Black and white smoke rose from the targets. As more than 100 Kurdish troops prepared to move in, they were joined by half a dozen volunteers.

They were Americans — not working on behalf of the U.S. military but volunteers to the cause of battling the militants. They had just arrived in northern Iraq, and they were getting an early taste of the fight.

On Tuesday, they joined the Kurds as they moved into burning, deserted villages. Bulldozers piled fresh earth into new defensive lines. At the entrance to one village, the Kurds had painted over the mural of a black flag, a remnant of ISIS control.

“They’re taking over cities that hundreds of Marines and soldiers died for,” one of the American volunteers, Ryan Gueli, of Ohio, told NBC News. “If they’re allowed to get more powerful you just leave them to your children to fight, and that’s not right.”

The Kurdish militia has estimated that there are more than 100 Americans helping them fight ISIS, most of them veterans. They are unpaid volunteers who served in Iraq with the U.S. military and felt drawn back to the country and the new cause.

One of them, Samuel Swan, from Texas, described ISIS as “pure evil” and said he wanted to do his part “so they don’t do it back home.”

As they moved through the villages on Tuesday, the Kurdish troops were wary of venturing into houses for fear of booby-trap bombs. ….’
