Hunter S. Thompson said “When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.” Somehow, the U.S. gov’t has convinced people that it is not on a crusade for global conquest, despite having an almost omnipresent global army and being in conflict with whomever doesn’t host the U.S. army on their soil. Ignore the rhetoric and look at who is where and the dogs of obvious will bite you on the ass.
It’s the rhetoric that turns obvious, plain as day aggression into a mind boggling maze of stupid and weird explanations and lies. Remove that and things become clear. Judge them by what they do.
The U.S. should copyright “By deception, thou shalt do war,” because they are the greatest user of the notion. A good analyst will always look for the element of deception, rather than talking about the action.
The recent 600 soldier surge into a Kurdish held area in Iraq is a multi dimensional lie. First, it will be far greater than 600 troops. Add the private, off-the-books U.S. army, CIA, NSA, special forces etc and the numbers will balloon as fast as a cargo plane can fly. That is just the little lie.
The truth is that the U.S. is about to pump up the Iraqi Kurd army with weapons and training. Once trained, that army is easily transferred to Syria. It isn’t news when military aircraft fly between mid east countries because no one sees it.
The heavily controlled Iraqi Kurd army will link up with the Syrian Kurd army in northeast Syria. Then, it could go north to link up with the Turkish Kurds, which would cause huge problems for Erdogan and Turkey. It could be used as a threat just in case Erdogan gets too cozy with Putin. The Kurds may hold a secret and worthless promise from the U.S. that the future homeland of the Kurdish people is in Syria.
The Turkish Kurds could relocate to Syria, which would satisfy the Turks and everyone could sing Kumbaya as they destroy and invade a sovereign nation. A U.S. controlled Kurd nation would be a permanent threat to Turkey and would keep Erdogan in line. They could even demand the Turkish participation in Syria, or else.
KISS – Keep It Simple Stupid. This plan is about as far away from simple as anything could be. The Russians, Chinese and Syrians won’t be fooled on this file and will call in some serious manpower and hardware to thwart this newest American con game.
Russia has yet to display its massive leap in military technology. For starters, The Russian SU-30 flown by the Indian air force kicked the shit out of the American F-35 during 12 rounds of dog fight exercises. The SU 30 went 12 for 12 against the trillion dollar behemoth. The F-35 is being compared to the old Mig 21 that should be a joke on any modern battlefield. The Russians are not eager to use their S-500 anti air technology and the U.S. shouldn’t be eager either. The S-500’s ability to see stealth aircraft and to shoot them down with a stealth missile of their own will result in U.S. aircraft being disappeared without a trace. The Syrian triangle.
If my experience in the Bosnian War remains consistent, the time table for the Kurds to be trained, armed and transferred to Syria should be sometime in the spring of 2017. Look for tension to rise then.
The bottom line is that U.S. machinations in Syria can be as deceptive as they want. Eventually, things boil down to the best technology having a huge advantage. Consider this as the U.S. re-introduces the old F-16s and F-15s from the 1970s into a modern air war with modern ground defences and that no assistance will come from a trillion dollar boondoggle that flies like a Mig 21. It is the height of irrationality to possess war making junk and to be aggressive. It is another case of the Americans going weird and the Russians turning pro.
Dennis has been to 35 countries and carried a gun in most of them. He's worked as a soldier, policeman and intelligence operator before and during the Bosnian war. When looking into the abyss, he found that it has several faces and names that can and should be identified.
