US Plans to Separate Kurdistan from Iraq

The Middle East faces the vicious circle of US-incited changes of regimes and the established borders of Arab states... The plundered Libya has ceased to be a unified state, Yemen is divided, and the integrity of Syria and Iraq is threatened. The Islamic State, a new product of US diplomacy, has emerged to control the territory larger than Great Britain... It’s not without reason Saudi Arabia is going to erect a 1000-km long wall at the Iraqi border to prevent the spread of chaos from Iraq to the Arabian Peninsula... The emergence of Iraqi Kurdistan, being to large extent dependent of US comprehensive aid, is not acceptable to Turkey...

The War in Rojava: Kobani’s Fall is a Prerequisite to an Invasion of Syria (II)

...The war on the ISIL has been presented by the US and its allies as a new war against a new enemy, but it is in fact a continuation of the war against Syria and all of Syria’s people, including the Syrian Kurds. For decades many of the Kurds wrongly thought that the US supports them. Instead Washington and players like Israel have geopolitically manipulated them time and time again. While Kurds have hoped for help from US military jets, even if they are illegally bombing Syria, they have instead found themselves being killed by US tanks and arms in the hands of the ISIL. Among many of the Syrian Kurds it is an open secret that the battle for Ayn Al-Arab or Kobani has really been about controlling the Syrian-Turkish border and forcing the Syrian Kurds to fall into line with the objectives of Ankara and Washington...

The War in Rojava: The US and Turkish Roles in the Battle of Kobani

...The US-led bombing campaign in Syria is intended to weaken and destroy Syria as a functioning state. This is why the US has been bombing Syrian energy facilities and infrastructure, including transport pipes, under the excuse of preventing the ISIL from using it to sell oil and gather revenues... The Syrian government knows that the Washington’s anti-ISIL coalition is a façade and that the masquerade could end with a US-led offensive against Damascus if the US government and Pentagon believe that the conditions are right. On November 6, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Al-Muallem told the Lebanese newspaper Al-Akhbar that Syria had asked the Russian Federation to accelerate the delivery of the S-300 anti-aircraft surface-to-air missile system to prepare for a possible Pentagon offensive.

The Silence of the Israelis on ISIS

A curious silence in the U.S.-led battle against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria is coming from Israel, which has advocated the overthrow of Iran’s ally in Syria, President Bashar al-Assad, but has had little to say about the brutal Islamists seeking to oust Assad, notes Stephen J. Sniegoski.

In the Heat of Battle against Islamic State

...According to some reports, the US plans to strike the Syrian oil infrastructure captured by Islamists to prevent illegal export bringing in up to $2 million daily. Any unbiased person can see that the strikes will be aimed at Syria’s economic potential. The US Middle East policy remains the same. The US intends to continue fighting the Islamic State but it refuses to join forces with Iran and Syria no matter they face the same enemy. The regime change in Damascus is still on the agenda of US administration which considers the Is-lamic State to be a force to be used for this purpose...

Iraqi Kurdistan Pushed to Independence

...After Saddam Hussein was overthrown, the United States insisted on territorial integrity of Iraq with vast autonomy for Kurdistan. It was 2003. The United States hoped to install its firm military control over the Middle East. Those days the US did not think about the world disorder. Formally the autonomy was created in 1974, so the question was not the status of autonomy itself but rather defining the borders. Kurds wanted the oil-rich Kirkuk to be theirs. Baghdad did its best to oppose this outcome. Americans acted as go-betweens and continued their mediation efforts till they preserved the interest in maintaining stability...

Iraq Partition, US Way

Iraq was the first phase of the US Greater Middle East plan being shaped on the world map. Even before the 2003 invasion, Washington wanted to partition the country into three parts: Sunni, Shia and Kurdish. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (alternatively translated as Islamic State of Iraq and Syria and Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, abbreviated ISIL, ISIS) offensive to capture a large part of Iraqi land is nothing else but part of this plan. Speaking formally the White House calls on the Kurds not to sever ties with Baghdad and promises military aid to the Shiite – dominated al-Maliki government. The United States also talks about the possibility of joining efforts with Iran to counter the terrorists, but in practice it sticks to the policy of instigating chaos to make Iraq a divided state...

Iraqi Kurds Get Serious about Independence in a Region Committed to status quo

The leadership of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) of Iraq, which has all the trappings of an independent state even though a leader of one of its two major clans is nominally president of the Republic of Iraq, has set out on the risky road to full independence... KRG President Massoud Barzani recently asked the Kurdish parliament in Erbil to set a date for an independence referendum. The Iraqi government rejected Barzani’s proposal... The only country that has outwardly championed Kurdistan’s independence is Israel. The Israeli Mossad has long-standing ties with Kurdistan, having trained many of its Peshmerga forces... But Israel has one major problem in exercising domination over an independent or semi-independent Kurdistan. Iran, which Israelis officials theatrically re-state is an «existential» threat to the Jewish state, continues to have greater influence in Kurdistan than do any other regional player...

Turkey and Iraqi Kurdistan: What’s in Store for Alliance of Convenience?

The Kurdish conundrum makes Turkey face tall orders again. Its policy of supporting terrorist and insurgent forces in Syria has stymied. Now the Turkish officials change the tune. Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu speaks more frequently about «extremist activities and the damage they cause to the Syrian revolution» and the fact that «Turkey has never supported radicals fighting Bashar Assad». The use of the term «Syrian revolution» as a figure of speech implies that Ankara still wants the power changed in Syria, but it has changed the ways to achieve this goal. The main reason is the growing role of Kurdish factor in the Arab country that shares a long border with Turkey...

Is Turkey on the Cusp of Rethink on Syria?

Through the past two-year period of turmoil in Syria, President Bashar Al-Assad has shown himself to be a master tactician who consistently outmaneuvered his regional adversaries. Syria has a tough neighborhood. Al-Assad’s regional adversaries are formidable people in their own ways. But he invariably pre-empted them, staying one step ahead of them... That’s what makes his latest interview last week with the Turkish television channel Halk rather significant. Al-Assad came down very hard on Turkey’s Syria policies and on Prime Minister Recep Erdogan personally. He warned Ankara of a blowback of terrorism that it has been promoting in Syria...

Yemen: Next War Begun in Middle East

With the support of other Arab countries Saudi Arabia launched airstrikes in neighboring Yemen on March 26. The aircraft attacked the positions of Shia formations in Sana, the capital of the country... Besides air operations, Saudis have pledged to contribute 150,000 soldiers with heavy weapons to the newly formed coalition including Kuwait, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar... Egypt has already said it is ready to send army, air force and naval units to the area. Another war has begun in the Middle East...
