How the Pro-War ‘Left’ Fell for the Kurds in Syria


The title is an essay by Max Parry, Dec 2, 2019, at his home website at medium.com;  he’s kindly given me to permission to repost it.  He draws in many more elements and celebrity figures than I’d ever known factored in to make his case; it’s says it’s a 12 minute read but it took me longer in my dotage.

Normandy Four Paris Ukraine Peace Talks

Much of what happened at the Paris Summit is being reported a bit differently, and sometimes rather enigmatically, and will include ‘breaking news’ toward at the end.  This may be the War and Peace report (both literally and figuratively) on the Summit, but in my defense, I’ll ask you to consider that it’s the nexus of proxies for NATO/US Ukrainegate/and Putin’s Russia.

I’ll start with:  ‘Normandy Four agree to ‘stabilize’ eastern Ukraine in Paris communique’, Dec. 9 2019, RT.com

“Prior to the news conference, the leaders said in a joint communique that they agreed to “immediate measures to stabilize the situation in the conflict area in east Ukraine.” Previous attempts by the ‘Normandy Four’ group to simmer down the conflict have achieved mixed results at best.

a US-made color revolution seems to be afoot in Bolivia

The pink tide needs to be stemmed for good, as with VZ, Brazil, Cuba, Ecuador, and so on; nor can the sole Indigenous President (and a peasant to boot!) on the planet be allowed to win this election.  Note: this a$$hat’s threats came on Oct. 21, with only a portion of the votes announced!  Yeah, we know what the US and its client states will do; it’s all part of the CIA handbook, isn’t it? Criminalize the pinko’s ‘regime’, sanction/sanction/sanction and eventually openly endorse the opposition leader, as with Juan Guaido:

the hypocrisy level of pelosi’s impeachment ‘inquiry’ rises

Yes, even further than this:  (smile) 

 In his Sept. 29, 2019 ‘CIA sets terms for Democrats’ impeachment inquiry into Trump’s crimes’, Joseph Kishore reports in part:

“The scandal over the Ukraine call has been instigated by the intelligence agencies. It was a CIA agent in the White House who prepared the report that is the basis of the inquiry. It was the decision by a group of Democrats drawn from the military and intelligence agencies that led Pelosi and Schiff, both with longstanding ties to these same agencies, to shift from their previous opposition to impeachment.

Pepe Escobar weighs in on Hong Kong civil disobedience


I’ll only focus on the Pepe’s Hong Kong portion, as I’ll bring other viewpoints as well.  A recent reader asked me to say that my (limited thoughts and content) are in violet,  hyperlinks turn blue at c99%; all else is in black.  This is longish, but given the current anti-China realpolitik afoot, this is a very big deal in my estimation.  Feel free to weigh in, even with contrasting sources and opinions.  Dagnabbit, I’d forgotten to see if Joe Biden’s blaming the protests on the Russians on Twitter.

insane new dangers from US nuclear & space weaponization, US and France

(I offer the following without comment, as I’m not sure that I have another gasket to blow, at least without self-injury. Although thought crimes are a whole ‘nother matter…)

Zelensky won the run-off election for President of Ukraine


Or as Bernhard at MoA puts it‘Ukraine Election – Voters Defeat Second Color Revolution’, July 22, 2019, moonofalabama.org

He begins with a fairly concise version of the Western-orchestrated revolution in 2014 in which Victor Yanukovitch failed to sign the EU Association deal that would bind Ukraine not only to the West, but to NATO.  Russia had countered with a better deal:

“It offered billions in investments and long term loans. Much of Ukraine’s industry depends on Russia and Russian gas was offered to the Ukraine for less than the international market price. Yanukovych, who originally wanted to sign the EU association, had no choice but to refuse it, and to take the much better deal Russia offered.”
