De strijd tegen ISIS in Syrië en Irak is in een nieuwe fase beland. In december vorig jaar werd Aleppo (Halab) bevrijd door het Syrische leger, met steun van de Russische luchtmacht. Deze strijd verliep langzaam, maar het aantal burgerslachtoffers was gering. De terroristen kregen de vrije aftocht naar Idlib, waardoor de gevechten in de stad tot een minimum beperkt bleven. In Irak wordt door regeringstroepen, Koerden en de VS al maanden gevochten tegen ISIS in Mosoel. Een laatste bolwerk van ISIS in Syrië is de stad Raqqa, net ten noorden van de Eufraat en ten zuiden van het deel van Syrië dat in handen is van de YPG, de Koerden. Let op de ligging van deze twee steden!

Het laatste nieuws is dat troepen van de VS samen met de Koerden het vliegveld van Tabqa of Tabaqah hebben bezet. Daarmee blokkeren ze de opmars van het Syrische leger naar Raqqa, want Tabqa ligt op de weg van Aleppo naar Raqqa. De VS streeft nu naar de vorming van een Koerdische staat in Syrië en Irak. Met steun van de Koerden zou de opsplitsing (Balkanisering) van Syrië dan een feit zijn.

BREAKING: State of Great Kurdistan to be Created in Syria and Iraq

According to the documents at our disposal, the U.S. authorities and the Syrian Kurds reached an agreement past week on the boundaries of the Kurdish autonomy in the territory of Syria, which had been guaranteed to Kurds in case of capturing Raqqa and Al-Tabqah (34 miles to the West of Raqqa). This confirms the reports about the U.S. plans to divide Syria.
In addition, Washington has already defined the boundaries of the new state of the Great Kurdistan on the territory of Syria and Iraq. It is to be created after ISIS defeat and the final collapse of Syrian Arab Republic. According to the U.S. military, Kurds remain the only force capable of defeating ISIS.
In order to strengthen its positions the new U.S. administration announced the upcoming liberation of the so-called ISIS capital, Raqqa. To grease the wheels the Americans resorted to money, their weapon of choice. They bribe ISIS field commanders and increase payments to YPG and FSA units.

US Forces Block Syrian Army Advance in Preparation For Syria Partition

The road to Raqqa is now blocked by U.S. forces and their allies. The chances that Raqqa (and the surrounding region) will be returned to Syria are now slim to none. Foreign armies and their proxies are sharpening their carving knives.

De kans is groot dat Raqqa straks wordt “bevrijd” door de VS, net als Mosul, waarna Trump zich op de borst kan kloppen als grote winnaar tegen ISIS, maar ISIS of Daesh is in het leven geroepen door de VS, met als doel de “Balkanisering” van het Midden Oosten: verdeel en heers! Het gaat dus niet om de bestrijding van het “internationale terrorisme”, maar om machtspolitiek! Intussen wordt in en rond Mosoel al maanden een humanitaire ramp aangericht! De stad is nog altijd in handen van ISIS en de bevolking wordt door hen gebruikt als menselijk schild.

Mosoel of Mosul is de op twee na grootste stad van Irak, gelegen in het noorden van het land, nabij de grens met Turkije. In 2008 woonden er 1,8 miljoen mensen. De stad ligt op de rechteroever van de Tigris, stroomopwaarts ligt de slecht gebouwde Mosoeldam. In maart 2016 meldde de Iraakse premier Haider al-Abadi dat de dam op instorten staat. Ook de waarschuwingen over de veiligheid klinken steeds schriller. De instorting zou kunnen leiden tot een vloedgolf van zo’n 14 meter hoog, die grote delen van Irak onder water zou zetten en die het leven van meer dan een half miljoen mensen bedreigt.

Op 10 juni 2014 viel Mosoel in handen van ISIS. Het Iraakse leger bleek niet in staat weerstand te bieden aan de snelle opmars van ISIS. Het leger van de Koerdische autonome regio was niet in de buurt wegens onenigheid met de Sjiitische nationale regering over de status van de stad. Na enkele uren strijd verlieten Iraakse politieagenten en militairen massaal hun posten en gepantserde wagens. Binnen 48 uur waren volgens de VN meer dan 500.000 inwoners van de stad op de vlucht geslagen naar de Koerdische autonome regio. Volgens lokale ziekenhuizen vielen zeker 200 doden en vluchtelingen spraken van lijken in de straten. Naar eigen zeggen executeerde ISIS 1.700 militairen.
Op 17 oktober 2016 startten Iraakse regeringstroepen, Koerdische Peshmerga en andere strijdgroepen een offensief tegen Mosoel om IS uit de stad te verdrijven.

Operation Mosul: A Medieval Massacre
By Stephen Lendman
March 27, 2017 “Information Clearing House” –

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova described it this way weeks after US-led terror-bombing and Iraqi ground operations began last October – long before the worst horrors ongoing now.

US-orchestrated operations are being conducted under “conditions of absolute information blockade,” Zakharova explained.

Nothing was done to protect, evacuate or otherwise help civilians. They’ve been on their own in harm’s way without humanitarian or any other type aid or consideration for their welfare and safety since last October.

Hundreds of thousands remain trapped in the city. Others getting out risk their lives to do it – as endangered by US terror-bombing as ISIS fighters.

Civilians in western Mosul are being shot at by Isis and Iraqi forces alike

Jasim explained that “Daesh (Isis) have snipers who cover the river bank between the 5th and 6th bridges”.

“The problem is that even at night things are not that easy,” he said. “The Iraqi army, the federal police and counter-terror forces shoot anyone coming from the western side as there is curfew at night and they believe anyone coming from the western side must be a Daesh fighter.” As a result, civilians are being killed by both Iraqi army mortars and Isis snipers when they try to escape. On several occasion in the past, the Iraqi security forces have announced that they have killed Isis infiltrators seeking to cross the Tigris from the west and these may have been civilians trying to escape.

Mosul civilians killed by airstrikes were told not to flee by authorities – Amnesty

Gepubliceerd op 29 mrt. 2017

Hundreds of Mosul residents were killed by airstrikes in their homes following repeated instructions from Iraqi authorities not to leave, Amnesty International says. It adds coalition forces should have known they were likely to result in civilian deaths.

Under Trump, U.S. airstrikes have already killed hundreds of civilians:

It’s not just Mosul. U.S.-led attacks in Syria in the last two weeks-one in Mansoura, a rural area of Raqqa, and another in Al Jinah, a village in western Aleppo -killed at least 79 people.

    Russian General: US Trying to Destroy Syria’s Critical Infrastructure

    Lieutenant General Sergei Rudskoi of the Russian military’s General Staff said on Tuesday that U.S.-led coalition airstrikes were intentionally targeting critical infrastructure in Syria — which could lead to major ecological and humanitarian catastrophes.

    Zou dat alles te maken kunnen hebben met de overname van een land zoals Syrie, juist gezien deze werkwijze en waarop andere onafhankelijke landen op gelijke wijze zijn overgenomen? Duidelijke modus operandi toch!
    Duidelijk dat het uitgestippelde pad richting een NWO blijft gaan.Al zij het onder een maskerade van zgn hulp, die agenda blijft ongewijzigd…

    • mr.drs.Bou:

      Treowd, ik heb de video er even bij gezet. En inderdaad is de VS NATO nog altijd bezig om het Midden Oosten te versplinteren. De NWO volgens Amerikaanse begrippen is dat de hele wereld wordt geknecht door de dollar-hegemonie. De Russische NWO is een ander verhaal. Dat er een Nieuwe Wereldorde is ontstaan, staat buiten kijf. Alle landen staan nu in contact met elkaar!

      Een lang interview met Lavrov maakt veel duidelijk. De Russen streven naar samenwerking tussen alle landen, op basis van respect en internationale wetgeving.

      Sergey Lavrov: The Interview is een lange, maar verhelderende tekst!

    Trump’s War on Terror Has Quickly Become as Barbaric and Savage as He Promised

    By Glenn Greenwald

    March 30, 2017 “Information Clearing House” – “The Intercept” –

    From the start of his presidency, Donald Trump’s “war on terror” has entailed the seemingly indiscriminate slaughter of innocent people in the name of killing terrorists. In other words, Trump has escalated the 16-year-old core premise of America’s foreign policy — that it has the right to bomb any country in the world where people it regards as terrorists are found — and in doing so, has fulfilled the warped campaign pledges he repeatedly expressed.

    The most recent atrocity was the killing of as many as 200 Iraqi civilians from U.S. airstrikes this week in Mosul. That was preceded a few days earlier by the killing of dozens of Syrian civilians in Raqqa province when the U.S. targeted a school where people had taken refuge, which itself was preceded a week earlier by the U.S. destruction of a mosque near Aleppo that also killed dozens. And one of Trump’s first military actions was what can only be described as a massacre carried out by Navy SEALs, in which 30 Yemenis were killed; among the children killed was an 8-year-old American girl (whose 16-year-old American brother was killed by a drone under Obama).

    McCain Furious At Rex Tillerson For Saying Assad Can Stay

    The Senate Armed Services Committee and prominent neocon said in a statement that “I am deeply disturbed by statements today by our Secretary of State and Ambassador to the United Nations regarding the future of Bashar al-Assad in Syria.”

    McCain then slammed Tillerson, saying “Once again, U.S. policy in Syria is being presented piecemeal in press statements without any definition of success, let alone a realistic plan to achieve it.”

    The angry neocon continued: “ultimately, the administration’s statements today could lead America’s true allies and partners in the fight against ISIS to fear the worst: a Faustian bargain with Assad and Putin sealed with an empty promise of counterterrorism cooperation. I hope President Trump will make clear that America will not follow this self-destructive and self-defeating path.

    US to Balkanize Syria Under Kurdish Pretext

    By Marwa Osman

    April 03, 2017 “Information Clearing House” –

    As early as 2013, Western powers have been rooting for the balkanization of Syria as the best possible outcome of the war tearing apart the country since 2011.

    Since the war against Syria is significant in this period of imperialism, watching how it was led by the US, imperialist proxies and their so-called allies, one can fully understand that the war against the Syrian Arab Republic has been decades in the making.

    Throughout history, the imperialist powers have been facilitating and empowering the most intolerant, bigoted ideologies and groups in the region starting from the Balfour Declaration, passing through the infamous Sykes-Picot agreement and ending in the invasions of Iraq and Libya before making their way into Syria. The latest group to gain the full support of the US on the ground in Syria is the Syrian Kurdish YPG forces (People’s Protection Units).
