Trump Approves Direct Arming Of Syrian Kurds With Heavy Weapons

The Kurds had already received a lot of weaponry, and some limited armored vehicles from the US before, and this move eliminates restrictions on what more will be sent.

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was already making much of his plans to lambaste President Trump during his DC visit later this month, complaining about the US provision of arms and military support to Kurdish factions that Turkey considers terrorists.

    That issue is going to be even bigger now, as President Trump has signed off on a plan to directly arm the Syrian Kurds with even heavier weapons than ever provided before, a move which the Pentagon was pushing as part of the Kurdish YPG’s invasion of ISIS capital Raqqa.

    The Kurds had already received a lot of weaponry, and some limited armored vehicles from the US before, and this move eliminates restrictions on what more will be sent, though so far it’s not entirely clear what’s going to end up going to the Kurds.



    Anything the Kurds get is likely to be used against NATO member Turkey, however, as Turkey has been attacking the YPG off and on over the past year, and the YPG has been firing back intermittently when the opportunity presents itself. The decision to arm them further amid this tension is likely to be chief among Turkey’s objections.

    That may be the reason for the timing, as President Trump clearly doesn’t like being publicly contradicted, and Erdogan has been very public in objecting to the US support for the Kurds.

    But it also runs contrary to the US stated policy of keeping Syria united under a strong central government, as the political wing of the YPG, the PYD, has set up a largely autonomous region in northeastern Syria, and the US is now giving them so many arms they’ll clearly be able to keep that area autonomous beyond the current war, even though the US officially doesn’t want that.

      It appears that Iran is enacting its “7 countries in 5 years” plan. It has terrorists operating in Iraq, Yemen, Sa’udi Arabia, Lebanon, Syria, Bahrain and Israel to destroy those nations and enable Iran to enslave the entire middle east.

      Once again, “tapa-pervert’s” obsession with me.

      The “7 countries in 5 years” is a 20-year old hoax that never happened.

      • tapatio

        It’s entertaining that James Wherry can call me sooooo many names, when HE KNOWS NOTHING about me other than what I’ve posted to this site. The neat part is that he hasn’t gotten even one accurate hit.

        On the other hand, over a year ago Wherry began trolling me, posting up to 30 ad hominem attacks daily. BUT, Wherry was stupid enough to use his name and a traceable photo. Once I became irritated enough, I checked his facebook, an article and news report about his being the very first “gay” marriage in whatever Georgia county he’s in. and ran a background check.

        TURNS OUT THAT HE IS……………..

        1 A SELF-STYLED “CHRISTIAN” ZIONIST. THESE, AH, PEOPLE BELIEVE THAT, ONCE ALL OF THE JEWS ARE GATHERED IN PALESTINE, SOMETHING CALLED “ARMAGEDDON” WILL HAPPEN AND ALL OF THE “CHRISTIAN” ZIONISTS WILL BE WHISKED UP TO HEAVEN WITH THEIR BODIES INTACT IN THE HOLY 0RGASM THEY CALL THE “RAPTURE”. NOBODY HAS EVER EXPLAINED TO THE OTHER 99% OF CHRISTIANITY HOW THESE FUNDAMENTALISTS WHACK-A-MOLES CAN BELIEVE THAT JESUS OR HIS DAD WOULD EVER SUPPORT SUCH FANTASIES OR THE CRIMES SUPPORTED BY PSEUDO-CHRISTIAN ZIONISTS.

        2) A MAJOR IN THE US ARMY FROM “CIVIL AFFAIRS”. BABY-BOOMERS MIGHT RECALL THAT “CIVIL AFFAIRS” WAS PROMINENT IN THE “PHOENIX PROGRAM” IN VIETNAM……..THOSE WONDERFUL FOLKS WHO TOLD THE VIETNAMESE PEOPLE, “LOVE AMERICA OR WE’LL NAPALM YOUR VILLAGE.” WHERRY HAS ALSO BRAGGED ABOUT HELPING TO TRAIN THE STATE TERRORISTS OF UGANDA.

        3) A “GAY” PREDATOR THAT BOUGHT A BOY FROM THE PHILIPPINE SLUMS TO USE AS HIS SXX TOY. PRESUMABLY, THIS BOY HAS PAPERS CLAIMING THAT HE IS OF AGE. BUT, HE COULD PASS FOR A JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL KID AND YOU CAN HAVE A BIRTH CERTIFICATE MADE IN THE PHILIPPINES FOR $100..

        Since Wherry whined to Disqus, I can’t post his address. But, the three links below are public………..

        Obviously, James Wherry is a LIAR.
        Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan & Iran”

        Iraq – the US had already destroyed Iraq and maintains what was once Iraq as a “zone of chaos”.

        Syria – The US has been doing everything in its power to destroy Syria since 2011, with Washington’s usual incompetence (happily, in this case).

        Libya – Obama and HELLary did a fine job of destroying one of the best run, most prosperous Muslim countries in the world. Today, Libya is nothing but warring tribes and terrorists – allllllll part of Washington’s grand plan.

        Somalia & Sudan – Wherry’s almost right there. Both were already failed states because of wealthy countries fishing out Somalia’s only real source of income – its coastal fisheries. Neither country was well managed to begin with.

        Iran – Because of the continuous hate propaganda and lies of the outlaw Jew state and the Rothschild-Bilderberg cartel’s desperation to steal Iran’s oil, Washington has been trying for many years to drum up support for war with Iran. Only problem is that such a war would cost (according to the Pentagon) three times as many US lives as Vietnam and would bankrupt the US – ALL IN ORDER FOR JEWISH BANKS AND CORPORATIONS TO STEAL OIL.

        • James Wherry

          Your post shows that you are the FRAUD we have come to know you as. Your phony claims are
          non-sense. What “7 countries in 5 years?” It’s been 20+ years and it NEVER HAPPENED. I do agree that going after Syria is a GREAT idea for Israel – since Syria declared war on Israel in 1948 and never stopped and since Syria fights a proxy war against Israel using Hezbollah. Same for Iran. What of it? Blame Syria and Iran, Dipwad. As to the rest of your phony list, here it is:

          Iraq – Saddam violated 17 U.N. resolutions on WMD and refused to budge. We warned him and then followed up with an invasion. We turned the country into a DEMOCRACY that is the lap dog of Tehran. The US left Iraq at the behest of Iran and the Iraqi government. Blame yourselves, if you could not keep the peace. The jihadists that Iran and Syria supported against the United States for YEARS are the chickens “that came home to roost.” Blame Iran and Syria.

          You’re welcome.

          Iran: Despite the fact that Iran ordered the murder of our own Marines in Beirut and despite the fact that they spent 2003-2011 murdering our service members in Iraq and Afghanistan, America warned Iran, but did not invade Iran or attack it. Our mistake.

          Somalia – didn’t even have a real government in 1996 or in 2001. We helped the Horn of Africa nations to form AMISOM and work to kick out al-Shebaab. TODAY Somalia has a real government – no thanks to your jihadist buddies. This is an “African Solution to an African Problem” and it MEANS NO U.S. TROOPS INVOLVED! Good answer. http://amisom-au.org/

          Sudan – And. . . ? Despite the Genocide by the Arab Muslims of the Sudan with the Janjaweed
          militias to the West and the South Sudanese to the south, no one is toppling the Government of the Sudan. https://www.hrw.org/africa/sudan

          Libya – Hey, Bush made peace with Mummar, when he gave up his chemical weapons. Blame Obama. Leftists are idiots. I agree, but there was no “conspiracy.”

          Lebanon – America helped end the war and monitor the peace. Your Hezzie buddies kidnapped and tortured to death Col. (USMC Ret.) William F. Higgins, while serving as a U.N. Peace Observer. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_R._Higgins

          In short, you hate the Jews so you hate America and so you lie about America. No surprises, there.

          • tapatio

            “Iran ordered the murder of our own Marines in Beirut”………..THE US MARINES IN BEIRUT WERE SUPPORTING THE ILLEGAL INVASION OF LEBANON BY THE JEWISH STATE.

            IT TAKES A DISEASED MIND TO CALL THE DEATHS OF ACCOMPLICES TO WAR CRIMES “murder”. THOSE MARINES WERE LEGALLY ENGAGED IN WAR CRIMES. (you don’t invade a country, put a puppet government in place and call that puppet “legitimate”).

            I WENT THROUGH ROTC AND OCS BACK WHEN THE UNITED STATES WAS REASONABLY HONORABLE. THEY TAUGHT US THAT………….

            1) IN A WAR ZONE, DEATH IS PART OF THE JOB.

            2) IF YOU COMMIT A WAR CRIME, YOU ARE SUBJECT TO HANGING.

            EVERY MARINE IN THAT BARRACKS WAS GUILTY OF A WAR CRIME UNDER INTERNATIONAL LAW AND LEGAL PRECEDENT ESTABLISHED AT NUREMBERG AND ELSEWHERE. “JUST FOLLOWING ORDERS” DOESN’T CUT IT ANY MORE.

            • James Wherry

              More Fake News by “tapatio.”

              The U.S. Marines in Beirut were there to end the violence and stop the war. Stopping the PLO from using Lebanon as a launching pad for attacks on Israel would have enabled us to get Israel out.

              Once again, Iran created its own “blowback” and prolonged the conflict for another decade and thousands of more lives. The actual allegation is that the Marines were working with the Christian Phalangist militias who were accused of atrocities against Palestinians. In truth, the Phalangists had gone into the Palestinian camps to look for the children who the PLO had kidnapped and held for ransom, and actually, the Marines were willing to work with ANYONE – except that the Shi’ites were anti-America, hate-filled bigots. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1983_Beirut_barracks_bombings

              Thanks for letting me show how utterly ignorant you are, once again.

                    HEY, BOY RAPIST, I STATED CLEARLY THAT THE US WAS THERE TO SUPPORT THE ILLEGAL JEW INVASION OF LEBANON. THAT MAKES WASHINGTON AN ACCESSORY TO JEW WAR CRIMES – AS THOUGH OUR TAX $$$ HAVEN’T PAID FOR THE JEWS’ CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY FOR 50 YEARS.

                      • tapatio

                        The greatest prerequisite in the war against ISIS (and AQ, Boko Haram, etc) is the recognition of EXACTLY who benefits from those terrorist organizations………..QUI BONO is the first question that MUST be asked in every criminal investigation.
                        Yes, Al Qaeda’s claiming of 9/11 was true. Yes, ISIS’s claim to the Paris attacks was true. But, who employs those groups? Whose agenda do those terrorist monsters actually serve?

                        As the aftermath of 9/11 so clearly demonstrated, the ONLY beneficiaries were those wishing to destabilize those Middle Eastern countries not already “allies” of the US and its banker masters.

                        A couple of documents are very relevant to this discussion.

                        First is a plan, written, in 1996, for Netanyahu’s reign as Emperor of Greater Israel. The writer is the pseudo-American Zionist fanatic, Richard Perle………

                        Understand that Zionism was a creation of the Rothschild banking family in the 1880s and has been incredibly successful, thanks to the corruptibility of British and American government officials and the installation of Islam’s most corrupt creatures as rulers of the Arabian Peninsula. This Saud family installed Wahhabism and “Sharia Law” as the state religion and “legal” system of the Arabian Peninsula.
                        This radical Wahhabi cult sowed the seeds for the “religious” terrorists of Al Qaeda, ISIS, Boko Haram and other ultra-right Islamic groups. It was like making Jerry Falwell king of the United States.
                        My opinion…………….ISiS is to create an “Islamic” caliphate, which will work closely with Saudi Arabia and the other fascist Gult states as loyal minions of the Rothschild-Bilderberg Cartel.

      • James Wherry

        What can’t be verified ANYWHERE ON PLANET EARTH is that any of it happened, as detailed in my posts above.

      Well, the Kurds are being asked to attack ISIS, the group funded and supported by Syria and Iran.

      Sure, the Kurds want weapons equal to the ines Iran is selling ISIS.

      • sai

        Iran supporting and selling weapons to ISIS?? Syria too? Ah, it’s a joke! Hm, needs a little (lot) of work but OK.. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3c21316405a27bcf5a131f5df6fe9395e3c65fcfa259feae5192ebd07a4bbe36.png

          James Wherry is a hasbara troll, a major in the US Army “Civil Affairs” and a pederast. He was fool enough to troll me using his real name and photo. I got mad and ran a background – he’s the PERFECT representative of the most corrupt realms of Judaism – though he claims to be a “Christian” Zionist.

        • James Wherry

          Syria sold ISIS and al-Quaeda weapons when they attacked the USA.

          “Blowback.”

      • Krishna E. Bera

        Maybe you got out the wrong side of the bed this morning lol.

        Why would Syria fund a group (ISIS) that wants to take it apart?
        Why would Iran who are Shia fund a group (ISIS) that is fanatical Sunni and opposes its ally Syria?.

        • tapatio

          You’re asking a sociopathic Zionist for rational thought?

          • Krishna E. Bera

            i prefer to address their arguments first, just a matter of style i guess

            • tapatio

              Well, I will address rational arguments. I’ve had one or two actual discussions with Wherry. However, I’ve read his background report and those discussions were strictly entertainment. I’ve never seen anything intelligent from his keyboard.

        • James Wherry

          Hey, you guys make that same claim about America’s leadership: selling us out for $$$$$.

          So why not Assad selling out his own people for $$$?

          • Krishna E. Bera

            There are indeed many heads of state who did that, especially in smaller resource-rich colonies.

            The Assad family isnt one of them – they came to power and forced the religious factions to stop fighting, brought in a secular government with socialist reforms such as universal health care and free education. They believe in what they are doing, and with all the sanctions involved there is no money in it. Not to say some Assads havent been nasty, or that the government doesnt act like any modern government when threatened, but i know people who have met Bashar Assad in person and can vouch for his humility and reason and care for his people. Also, Syria doesnt have a major resource to exploit.

            Not sure what you mean by “you guys”, i dont speak for any group. As for America, everything is for sale for the right price, it is the capitalist way, so it is no surprise the leaders would do that, they are just setting an example.

            • James Wherry

              By “you guys,” I mean the American Left. You’ve been arguing for years that the CIA is funding, training and supporting our enemies, ISIS, al-Quaeda, etc. for personal gain and to advance “hegemony.” Why, then, don’t you believe it about Iran or Syria? The argument seems to be, “Oh, Iran and Syria wouldn’t train and arm their ENEMIES!!!”

              Isn’t that really an argument that I can make about the USA?

              I’d like to think better of the Assads, but 40+ years of brutality since Hama have shown me that the Assad’s are the opposite side of the same Ba’athist coin as Saddam Hussein and his family. Of course, I agree that secular government is best, but the Ba’athists have been ruthless, vile individuals and used their brutality to stamp out the so-called religious conflicts. The fact you don’t acknowledge that concerns me a bit.

              • Krishna E. Bera

                Not saying it is impossible for Iran and Syria to setup false flag enemies – it could happen if there is a significant size department operating out the government’s control, or if a commando group or supported militia gets burned after an operation for example. That is the difference between Syria or Iran and large countries such as the US China India or Russia. Perhaps Syria and Iran just arent old enough yet for it to have happened.

                As for alleged brutality of Assad government, i submit they have acted pretty much the same as any western government threatened by separatists and terrorists. Because they came to power through a coup, as with any revolutionary government there was a cleanup period, but the result was a modern and stable country. Feel free to give them suggestions how they could better handle religious extremists – the US is not a source of good examples btw. Then if you succeed at that, how will you handle extremists being armed by foreign powers.

                • James Wherry

                  Not a “false flag.”

                  1. Iran and Syria backed Sun’ni Jihadists to kill Americans in Iraq from 2004-2011. It’s simple “blowback.”

                  2. INTEL has it that Iran is now supporting al-Quaeda to kill ISIS. That too will come back to bite.

                  3. Greed: if ISIS has Syria’s oil wells and Assad can Proffit by buying oil from them – why not?

      Trump is clearly under the thumb of the Deep State. How did they do it?
      Blackmail? Threaten his family?

      • TecumsehUnfaced

        My guess is that they implicitly threatened the very core of the cowardly bully.
