Name[ edit ] There are different theories about the origin of name Kurd.
The US-Israeli goals in Syria were really very simple.
Doing this would achieve the following goals: Bring down a strong secular Arab state along with its political structure, armed forces and security services.
Trigger a civil war in Lebanon by unleashing the Takfiri crazies against Hezbollah. Breakup Syria along ethnic and religious lines.
Make it possible for Israel to become the uncontested power broker in the Middle-East and forces the KSA, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait and all others to have to go to Israel for any gas or oil pipeline project. Gradually isolate, threaten, subvert and eventually attack Iran with a wide regional coalition of forces.
Eliminate all center of Shia power in the Middle-East.
With the joint Russian-Iranian military intervention, this plan completely collapsed. The problem with them is that, just like the USA themselves, these countries do not have ground forces capable of actually deploying inside Syria and taking on not only the Syrian military, but the much more capable Iranian and Hezbollah forces.
Murdering civilians is really the only thing the Israelis and Saudis are expert in, at least on the ground in the skies the Israeli Air Force is a very good one.
Unlike the Israelis and Saudis, the Kurds are a relatively competent ground force albeit not one able to take on, say, Turkey or Iran.
The folks at the Pentagon had already tried something similar last year when they attempted to create a sovereign Kurdistan in Iraq by means of a referendum.
Which immediately begs to obvious question: The real goal was, as always, to put pressure on Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Syria and Russia while grabbing a lot of oil.
Yet again, and I know this sounds hard to believe, but I think that this is yet another strong indication that the Empire is run by stupid and ignorant people whose brain and education simply do not allow them to grasp even the basic dynamics in the region of our planet there are interfering with.
Whatever may be the case the Turks reacted exactly as everybody thought: Sergei Lavrov deplored it all, as he had to, but it was clear to all that Turkey had the Russian backing for this operation.
I would add that I am pretty sure that the Iranians were also consulted maybe at the same meeting in Moscow? What about the Kurds? Well, how do I say that nicely?
The Russians gave them a golden deal: But no, the Kurds chose to believe in the hot air coming from Washington and when the Turks attacked that is all the Kurds got from Washington: In fact, it is pretty clear that the US Americans have, yet again, betrayed an ally: Take a look at this simple map of the Afrin region and look what 50 miles about 80km look like.
It is especially sweet for the Russians to see that they did not even have to do much, that this ugly mess of a disaster for the USA was entirely self-inflicted. What can be sweeter than that? Turkey is the key to the eastern Mediterranean and the entire Middle-East well, one of them at least.
Turkey will always be a problematic neighbor for Russia the two countries already fought 12 wars!!!Israel news features every important moment from the Jewish State involving politics, celebrities, and innovation.
