Did Obama turn his back on the Kurds for Turkey air bases?

    Call me a conspiracy nut, but it is strange that Obama withheld any arms shipments to the Kurds in order to not give them an advantage if and when Turkey decided to reestablish their war with the PKA or the Kurdistan rebels.

    It is not just coincidental that days after gaining use of Turkey air bases, Turkey begins bombing Syria and Kurdistan. What say you? :flower:

    I've been telling you and everyone else that foreign Jihadis have been the backbone of covert US foreign policy for decades. Not just under Obama.

    Washington has been funding and arming Jihadis and using them for "regime change" proxies all along. From Reagan on. It's no mistake. There's no oops "we armed the wrong people" or oops "our weapons fell into the wrong hands" ISIS or the foreign Jihadi army known as "ISIS" was created and allowed to expand to do exactly what it is doing.


    The Grand Chessboard

    Brzezinski sets the tone for his strategy by describing Russia and China as the two most important countries - almost but not quite superpowers - whose interests that might threaten the U.S. in Central Asia. Of the two, Brzezinski considers Russia to be the more serious threat. Both nations border Central Asia. In a lesser context he describes the Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Iran and Kazakhstan as essential "lesser" nations that must be managed by the U.S. as buffers or counterweights to Russian and Chinese moves to control the oil, gas and minerals of the Central Asian Republics (Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan).

    He also notes, quite clearly (p. 53) that any nation that might become predominant in Central Asia would directly threaten the current U.S. control of oil resources in the Persian Gulf. In reading the book it becomes clear why the U.S. had a direct motive for the looting of some $300 billion in Russian assets during the 1990s, destabilizing Russia's currency (1998) and ensuring that a weakened Russia would have to look westward to Europe for economic and political survival, rather than southward to Central Asia. A dependent Russia would lack the military, economic and political clout to exert influence in the region and this weakening of Russia would explain why Russian President Vladimir Putin has been such a willing ally of U.S. efforts to date. (See FTW Vol. IV, No. 1 - March 31, 2001)

    An examination of selected quotes from "The Grand Chessboard," in the context of current events reveals the darker agenda behind military operations that were planned long before September 11th, 2001.


    Are the dots lining up yet?
