U.S. Plans To Partition Iraq And Syria Into “Pipeline States”

From Bush to Obama and the bogus "war on terror" this was the plan from the very beginning

The plan to partition Iraq came into existence before the US invaded the country. Its implementation started with “no-fly zones” established in 1991 to the north of Tikrit and south of Nasiriyah. 


Obama, oil company criminals have the last laugh
on Americans
The Iraqi Air Force aircraft were warned to keep out of the zone or be shot down in case of violation. The talks held in Ankara and Washington on creation of “no-fly zones” in Syria pursue the same goal – they are part of the plan to divide the country.

The territory of Syria is a natural transit route for transporting oil and gas from Iraq (northern Kurdistan), the Arabian Peninsula and the Persian Gulf. The course of events in the region will directly influence the geography of hydrocarbons flow.



The Syrian government-sponsored National Dialogue Conference held in Moscow on August 27 emphasized that Islamic State militants and the armed formations of Syrian “secular” opposition had already seized sections of the country’s transit routes. 

As far back as the early 1970s, Hafez Assad, the father of the current president, nationalized the pipelines going through the Syrian territory.But Saudi Arabia is still the main owner of Middle East oil and gas transit routes (except the sections going through Syria).




So-called independent administrations are being established to control the sections of pipelines going through Syrian territory. Actually they are controlled by the states that sponsor war in Syria, Ammar Morhezh, the National Dialogue Conference expert on external trade and transport policy, told me in conversation. According to him, such actions are motivated by strategic importance of Syrian pipeline and sea ports used for export of hydrocarbons from Iraq and the Arabian Peninsula to Turkey and Europe. He believes that Trans-Syrian transit pipelines have always been targets for outside forces.

It has been reported that the Islamic State uses the territory of Turkey to transport the oil extracted in Syria, northern and north-western parts of Iraq to Ukraine and some other countries. The members of US-formed “anti-terrorist” coalition do nothing to prevent such actions. The world oil market is becoming accustomed to deal with another supplier.




The conference participants said the same plans to partition Syria were hatched by Western powers as far back as mid-1940s, the second half of the 1950s, late 1960s and later. In the middle of the 1950s - early 1960s Turkey tried to occupy the adjacent northern part of Syria with two pipelines stretching from Northern Iraq to the Turkish ports of Ceyhan and Yumurtalik and Syrian ports of Baniyas and Latakia. The same goal was set during the Israeli-Arab war in the June of 1967 and during the Syria-Iraq stand-off in the late 1960s-early 1970s.

For many years the West’s policy has been based on the territorial partitioning principal to provide safe oil and gas transit routes. A while ago Sudan was partitioned according to this principle. The energy resources rich South Sudan became an independent state. In the 1920s – till the mid-1950s the Suez Canal was separated from Egypt to be governed by the UK and France. The Syria-Iraq scenario repeats the story in many ways.




Since this spring, US officials and military have been making frequent statements to reconcile public with the fact that wars in the Middle East will be long-lasting. CIA Director John Brennan was the first to say so. In May he announced that the battle against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) will be "a long fight" that requires both a military and political solution. "I don't see this being resolved anytime soon," Brennan said in an interview on CBS' "Face the Nation." "… I think there's going to be unfortunately a lot of bloodshed between now and then."

He was followed by Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno who said in an interview to CBS, “It’s a 3 to 5 to 7- 10 year problem; this is not going to be fixed overnight.”

Masoud Barzani, President of the Kurdistan Region in Iraq, has spoken more confidently about the inevitable partition of Iraq.


Coming soon to the U.S.

The statement of Lt. Gen. Vincent Stewart, the head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, made on September 10 drew a line. Being a military man, he was straightforward enough to say, “I can see a time in the future where Syria is fractured into two or three parts."The US General also spoke out against the Baghdad-based government. Stewart said he is "wrestling with the idea that the Kurds will come back to a central government of Iraq," suggesting he believed it was unlikely.

General Stewart sounded vague enough. He did not make it precise what “two or three” parts Syria should be divided into, according to his vision. Anyway, it’s not a big thing for an attentive reader to have a look at the map of oil fields and pipeline routes in the adjacent areas of northern Iraq and eastern Syria to see the borders of new “transit” states.

BBC Strings Lies Together To Propagandise For Assad’s Overthrow

BBC cross-dressing pedophiles and MI6 hacks continue to shill for Obama's CIA/ISIS mercs in Syria   

WASHINGTON'S BLOG
By Eric Zuesse
09/18/2015

To introduce this string of BBC lies, one thing that’s worth noting is that overwhelmingly the people of Syria view that nation’s current President, Bashar al-Assad, favorably. He won his election on 27 May 2007 by acclamation in a referendum when the Associated Press at the time reported that, “the country’s tiny opposition boycotted the voting.” (Note that it indeed was “a tiny opposition.”) 


The AP reported: “Still, the president is assured of another seven-year term in a referendum that gave voters just one choice: a green circle to approve Assad or a gray one to oppose his second term. In his first referendum, he received 97.29 percent approval.” 

The West supports not only that “tiny opposition,” but the much bigger opposition that comes from the Saudi and Qatari royal families, and which has recruited Sunni jihadists from around the world to fight in Syria against the secular Shiite Assad. 




U.S. psycho traitor John McCain with ISIS thugs

With that, then, as the firmly documented historical background: 


BBC Newshour, on the morning of Friday September 18th, interviewed Oxford Professor Eugene Rogan and also the Century Foundation’s Thanassis Cambanis, on the question, “Is it time for the west to bury the hatchet with President Assad and ally with him against IS?”

Cambanis said, “To expect Bashar al-Assad to be a reliable partner … ignores the last decade during which he single-handedly has driven Syria to the brink of destruction, and, by the way, has been the key culprit in the rise of al-Qaeda in Iraq first, and later in the rise of ISIS.” Rogan did not challenge that assertion.


Oxford fraud Eugene Rogan, BBC "expert" on ISIS

Cambanis then referred to “Bashar al-Assad’s strategy, which was to set up a false choice, apres moi, le deluge, if you don’t support me, you’re going to get ISIS, and we got to that point because he really systematically focused all his firepower on killing moderate, reasonable people and leaving those as the two choices.” Rogan did not challenge that assertion, either.

Cambanis then said, “The U.S. position has been to just stay out of this complex mess, and there is some merit and some moral reason for this. Now we see not intervening has also led to a disaster. So logically what follows is either the U.S. remains remains on the sidelines and just lets it play out as it may, or, …,” and Rogan did not challenge those allegations either.


Assad now a target for BBC propaganda 

Rogan then said, “What Russia has done by prepositioning the facilities for Russian troop presence is to escalate its position in Syria, and by providing the Syrians with air defense systems, they are actually creating the kind of protections that will make any talk of a no-fly zone a nonstarter, so I think the Russians are trying to clearly set what the limits of the terms of discussion will be, and it’s very clear that preserving Bashar al-Assad in power is the Russian condition.”


The interviewer then said, “But if the West were to come onside with President Assad, I mean that would represent the most appalling concession, would it not, given the number of Syrians who died as a result of actions by President Assad and his military?” Rogan answered: “I agree with that.” But he advised negotiations instead of “the West” sending in more military assets for “continuing a struggle that no side is capable of winning.”


Cambanis interjected, “What we’re seeing right now is the result of America and the West not intervening. It’s not really American weapons, or American anything that has fueled this conflict. It’s important to remember also that Assad has been a huge strategic threat to the West long before ISIS even existed.” To that, Rogan replied, “I could not agree with you more, that the injustice that Assad has inflicted on his people has been an injustice of the first magnitude.”

So: the BBC simply assumes that Assad is hated instead of passionately supported by the Syrian people, and that the U.S. and “the West” have been “not intervening” but have been well-intentioned there. And the BBC’s producers invited on Western ‘experts’ to ‘debate’ the matter, but all within this lying framework.




Clearly, then, the BBC’s answer to its headline question, “Is it time for the west to bury the hatchet with President Assad and ally with him against IS?” is: No!

Here, again, is my article about the recent WIN/Gallup polling results of the Syrian people regarding their attitudes towards ISIS, the U.S., and Assad.

What remains of honest news-media in the West? They’re few, and small.

The Fundamentals Of U.S. Surveillance : What Edward Snowden Never Told Us

Americans and the world owe an enormous debt to Ed Snowden, a genuine Patriot that sacrificed everything to reveal the truth  

NEW EASTERN OUTLOOK
By Janet Phelan
09/19/2015

Former U.S. intelligence contractor Edward Snowden’s revelations rocked the world. According to his detailed reports, the U.S. had launched massive spying programs and was scrutinizing the communications of American citizens in a manner which could only be described as extreme and intense.


Ed Snowden in exile
The U.S. reaction was swift and to the point. “”Nobody is listening to your telephone calls,” President Obama said when asked about the NSA. As quoted in The Guardian, Obama went on to say that surveillance programs were “fully overseen not just by Congress but by the Fisa court, a court specially put together to evaluate classified programs to make sure that the executive branch, or government generally, is not abusing them”.

However, it appears that Snowden may have missed a pivotal part of the US surveillance program. 


And in stating that the “nobody” is not listening to our calls, President Obama may have been fudging quite a bit.

In fact, Great Britain maintains a “listening post” at NSA HQ. The laws restricting live wiretaps do not apply to foreign countries and thus this listening post is not subject to US law. 

 In other words, the restrictions upon wiretaps, etc. do not apply to the British listening post. So when Great Britain hands over the recordings to the NSA, technically speaking, a law is not being broken and technically speaking, the US is not eavesdropping on our each and every call.


Obama never recovered from the humiliation of being exposed, and in retaliation instructed his murdering CIA traitors to engineer and finance a coup in Ukraine in order to "punish" Vladimir Putin for granting Snowden asylum

It is Great Britain which is doing the eavesdropping and turning over these records to US intelligence.

According to John Loftus, formerly an attorney with the Department of Justice and author of a number of books concerning US intelligence activities, back in the late seventies the USDOJ issued a memorandum proposing an amendment to FISA. 


Loftus, who recalls seeing the memo, stated in conversation this week that the DOJ proposed inserting the words “by the NSA” into the FISA law so the scope of the law would only restrict surveillance by the NSA, not by the British. Any subsequent sharing of the data culled through the listening posts was strictly outside the arena of FISA. Obama was less than forthcoming when he insisted that “What I can say unequivocally is that if you are a US person, the NSA cannot listen to your telephone calls, and the NSA cannot target your emails … and have not.”


According to Loftus, the NSA is indeed listening as Great Britain is turning over the surveillance records en masse to that agency. 

Loftus states that the arrangement is reciprocal, with the US maintaining a parallel listening post in Great Britain.


GCHQ continues back-door spying on Americans

In an interview this past week, Loftus told this reporter that he believes that Snowden simply did not know about the arrangement between Britain and the US. 

As a contractor, said Loftus, Snowden would not have had access to this information and thus his detailed reports on the extent of US spying, including such programs as XKeyscore, which analyzes internet data based on global demographics, and PRISM, under which the telecommunications companies, such as Google, Facebook, et al, are mandated to collect our communications, missed the critical issue of the FISA loophole.




Under PRISM, said Snowden, the US has “deputized” corporate telecoms to do its dirty work for them. PRISM, declared Snowden was indeed about content, rather than metadata.

However, other reports indicated that PRISM was not collecting telephone conversations and was only collecting targeted internet communications. 


The most detailed description of the PRISM program was released in a report from the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board (PCLOB) on July 2, 2014. The report disclosed that “ these internet communications are not collected in bulk, but in a targeted way: only communications that are to or from specific selectors, like e-mail addresses, can be gathered. 


Under PRISM, there’s no collection based upon keywords or names.”( (Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board, Report on the Surveillance Program Operated Pursuant to Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, July 2, 2014).

U.S. government officials have defended the program by asserting it cannot be used on domestic targets without a warrant. But once again, the FISA courts and their super-secret warrants do not apply to foreign government surveillance of US citizens. So all this sturm and drang about whether or not the US is eavesdropping on our communications is, in fact, irrelevant and diversionary.




Section 215 of the USA Patriot Act, which authorized extensive surveillance capabilities, expired in June of 2015. Within one day, it was replaced by the misnamed USA Freedom Act. In a widely disseminated tweet, President Obama stated “Glad the Senate finally passed the USA Freedom Act. It protects civil liberties and our national security.”

In fact, the USA Freedom Act reinstituted a number of the surveillance protocols of Section 215, including authorization for roving wiretaps and tracking “lone wolf terrorists.” While mainstream media heralded the passage of the bill as restoring privacy rights which were shredded under 215, privacy advocates have maintained that the bill will do little, if anything, to reverse the surveillance situation in the US. The NSA went on the record as supporting the Freedom Act, stating it would end bulk collection of telephone metadata.




However, in light of the reciprocal agreement between the US and Great Britain, the entire hoopla over NSA surveillance, Section 215, FISA courts and the USA Freedom Act could be seen as a giant smokescreen. If Great Britain is collecting our real time phone conversations and turning them over to the NSA, outside the realm or reach of the above stated laws, then all this posturing over the privacy rights of US citizens and surveillance laws expiring and being resurrected doesn’t amount to a hill of CDs.

The NSA was contacted with a query about the GB listening post, as was British intelligence. A GCHQ spokesperson stated: “Our response is that we do not comment on intelligence matters.” The NSA also declined to comment.
