‘Orgy of Killing’: US-Backed ‘Liberation’ of Mosul Left 10,000 Civilians Dead

‘Orgy of Killing’: US-Backed ‘Liberation’ of Mosul Left 10,000 Civilians Dead:

After the United States and its proxy armies “liberated” the Iraqi city of Mosul earlier this year, the world’s superpower unsurprisingly turned a blind eye to a massacre that took place soon after. As the Guardian aptly phrased it, the aftermath was an “orgy” of killing.

The Guardian explains that it was the brutal conduct of the Iraqi Armed Forces that enabled Iraq to successfully liberate Mosul from ISIS’ dominance, stating:

“One of the factors that had aided Isis’s takeover of Mosul was the conduct of the Iraqi army and security forces stationed in the city, who behaved like sectarian occupation forces, mistreating and detaining the population at will. In the early stages of the battle for Mosul, the Iraqi army and police, keen to change their prevailing image, had taken care to preserve the lives of civilians. Soldiers and officers used their vehicles to help people evacuate their homes, and offered water and medical help. But the Old City was seen as the last refuge of Isis, and almost every inhabitant was treated as a suspect. Fighting-age men from other parts of the city, and those with injuries, were detained on the spot. The rest were sent to detention centres, where their identity would be checked.”

According to the non-partisan monitoring group Airwars, the civilian death toll in Mosul may have exceeded 10,000. Those who were fortunate enough to survive coalition bombings were apparently treated as suspected ISIS members, and the result was a host of crimes that should make The Hague cringe.

US seeks to drive a wedge between Syria, Iraq: Analyst

US seeks to drive a wedge between Syria, Iraq: Analyst:

An academic believes the United States will resort to new tactics to drive a wedge between Syria and Iraq, which are fighting Washington’s attempts to impose its hegemony in the Middle East following Iraqi forces’ gains in the city of al-Qaim in the western Anbar province.

“So I believe that this is a major achievement, but I still believe that we might see new surprises presented to us by the United States because Daesh at one point was mainly running in favor of US geopolitical objectives in the region to [drive] a wedge between Syria and Iraq, which are both trying to fight American influence and hegemony in the region,” Jamal Wakim, a professor at the Lebanese International University told Press TV in an interview on Friday.

“One can only presume the cabal haven’t quite given up on their plan to oust Assad.”

… and also not on their master plan to stage another world war.

Why Despite Threats, Turkey Won’t Impose Sanctions On Kurdistan After The Referendum

Why Despite Threats, Turkey Won’t Impose Sanctions On Kurdistan After The Referendum:

High-ranking sources in Kurdistan (Erbil) said that the Kurdish leader Masoud Barzani “expected the sanctions already announced by Baghdad and expects many more sanctions to come in the future”. Nevertheless, “the referendum was an essential step to undertake,” otherwise Barzani would no longer be considered the Kurdish leader.

“We are not afraid of Turkish sanctions because Ankara would lose more than it will gain if the common borders are closed. The Turkish representative promised us (months before the referendum) that harsh political measures will be adopted against Kurdistan but that no economic sanctions would be seriously considered. After all it is up to Turkey to stop sending its oil tankers to recover our oil production at a cheap price if Erdogan considers it a practical move within his own economy,” said the source.

Turkey, Iraq, and Iran Consider Joint Military Action Against the Kurds:

Turkey’s Foreign Minister says the possibility of attacking the Kurds is “on the table.”

(ANTIWAR.COM) — Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu today warned that every option is on the table for dealing with Iraqi Kurdistan’s independence bid, and that they are considering a joint military operation with the Iraqi central government against the Kurds.

Iran chimed in shortly thereafter, saying they’re eager to stand with both Iraq and Turkey to rule out any possible secession of the Kurds. Top Khamenei adviser Ali Akbar Velayati termed the big “an abhorrent deviation,” adding that the region would “not allow the creation of a second Israel.”
