The US is in Northern Syria converting an unused airport into a military airport. The airport is in the region of Hasaka, North Eastern Syria which is controlled by the Kurd forces. The interesting thing here is that Russia is the only country allowed into Syria legally and any other country is in Syria illegally and against International Law. The US is complaining that China is building in the Spratly Island group yet the US can build in another country where they are not welcome. Sounds like do as I say not what I do from the US but I guess that’s called Western democracy. The UK has bombed a couple of things apparently, one of them being an already bombed out oil field in Omar.
This from a US operations officer published 23rd October 2015;
“US operations officer Major Michael Filanowski told reporters in Baghdad the Omar oil field was blitzed, heavily damaging the lucrative funding source for ISIS.”
This from Alarabiya news published 22nd October 2015;
“There were strikes last night that struck Daesh-controlled oil refineries, command and control centres and transportation nodes” in the Omar oil field, U.S. operations officer Major Michael Filanowski told reporters in Baghdad’.
This from UK’s Ministry of Defence published 6th December 2015;
‘Announcing details of Friday night's air strikes, the Ministry of Defence said the RAF had targeted a "very large Daesh-controlled oilfield at Omar in eastern Syria".
So six weeks later the UK bombed the same oil field?
The Uk’s defence secretary, Michael Fallon also said that President Assad buys oil from ISIS.
‘Selling oil to the black market as well as the Assad regime has been a key source of finance for the terrorists’.
No proof at all of Assad buying their own stolen oil but this Twat can say that? No mention of Turkey buying the oil even though there is proof? It’s an example of just another politician using propaganda to convince the people that it is good.
He also said;
"Nobody likes [air] strikes, nobody likes warfare”... I beg to differ on this one because I’m sure his arms manufacturing dealers and their larger shareholders love strikes and warfare especially when they bomb nothing and then have to buy MORE bombs.
Now Turkey has decided to walk in to Iraq with troops and the Iraqi’s are calling for their immediate withdrawal calling it an invasion. The US has said they know of Turkey’s movement but it is not part of the US led Coalition. Apparently Turkey said that it’s all good and the Governor of Mosul let them in and it’s all part of training;
‘Turkey's Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, though, said the troops were there as part of an ongoing training mission at the request of Mosul's governor and in coordination with Iraq's defence ministry’.
Can anyone else see what I can see? The US led coalition has been bombing ISIS for over a year now with no real effect. The Russians come in to show how it is done and cause all sorts of trouble for ISIS, Al-Qaeda and Al-Nusra to name a few. The US then gets upset saying the Russians are bombing ‘moderate rebels’. Just by changing Al-Qaeda and Al-Nusra’s name doesn’t make them moderate. Turkey buys stolen oil from ISIS and shoot down a Russian jet for no reason and the western allies stick up for Turkey. The Kurds are fighting ISIS and making some ground while Turkey is attacking the Kurds and the US doesn’t care. It seems Russia and Syria are the only countries who want to stop ISIS. Iraq, Libya and Syria are perfect examples of what happens to a country when they want to remain a sovereign State and not allow other countries corporations into their country. So what are the ‘interests’ that are being protected by the west in those countries?
