Russia Activates Air Defense Missile System "To Guard Its Southern Frontiers" | Zero Hedge

Russia Activates Air Defense Missile System "To Guard Its Southern Frontiers" | Zero Hedge

Just a month after announcing plans to deploy its newest S-500 air defense systems to protect Moscow and central regions, Xinhua reports that Russia has activated an air defense regiment armed with advanced S-400 surface-to-air missile systems in the Southern Military District to guard its southern frontiers. Furthermore, a spokesperson for Russia's Aerospace Defense Forces, said that 12 missile regiments will receive the S-400 systems, as it seems NATO's moves are prompting retaliatory advances by Russia.


As Xinhua reports, Russia activates S-400 missile systems in south to guard frontiers
Russia has activated an air defense regiment armed with advanced S-400 surface-to-air missile systems in the Southern Military District to guard its southern frontiers, the Russian military said Tuesday.

"An air defense missile regiment from the Fourth Command of the Air Force and Air Defense entered into service in the Krasnodar region. It is equipped with S-400 Triumph advanced missile systems and Pantsir-S air defense missile and gun complex," the Southern Military District's press service said in a statement.

Earlier this month, the S-400 systems arrived at their permanent base after completing tests at the Ashuluk firing range in southern Astrakhan region.

During the tests, they successfully destroyed high-speed targets simulating incoming ballistic missiles and other aerial targets.

In August, Russia also announced plans to deploy its newest S-500 air defense systems to protect Moscow and central regions.

Alexei Zolotukhin, a spokesperson for Russia's Aerospace Defense Forces, said Monday that 12 missile regiments will receive the S-400 systems by 2020.

The S-400 system, which can engage targets at a maximum range of up to 400 km at an altitude of 40,000-50,000 meters, is expected to form the cornerstone of Russia's air defense by 2020.

The S-500 systems will have an extended range of up to 600 km and is capable of engaging up to 10 targets simultaneously.

Asia Times Online :: Terrorism as a cover for intervention

Asia Times Online :: Terrorism as a cover for intervention

By Nauman Sadiq 

Speaking Freely is an Asia Times Online feature that allows guest writers to have their say. Please click here if you are interested in contributing. 

To understand the hype surrounding the petro-Islamic terrorism phenomena, we need to understand the prevailing global economic order and its prognosis. What the pragmatic economists forecasted about the free market capitalism has turned out to be true; whether we like it or not. A kind of global economic entropy has set into motion. The money is flowing from the area of high monetary density to the area of low monetary density. 

The rise of the BRICS countries is a proof of this tendency. BRICS are growing economically because the labor is cheap; labor laws



and rights nonexistent; expenses on creating a safe and healthy work environment minimal; regulatory framework is lax; expenses on environmental protection negligible; taxes are low; and in the nutshell windfalls for the multinational corporations are huge. 

Thus, BRICS are threatening the global economic monopoly of the Western bloc: North America and Western Europe. Here we need to understand the difference between the manufacturing sector and the services sector. The manufacturing sector is the backbone of the economy; one cannot create a manufacturing base overnight. It is based on hard assets: we need raw materials; production equipment; transport and power infrastructure; and last but not the least, a technically-educated labor force. It takes decades to build and sustain a manufacturing base. But the services sector, like the Western financial institutions, can be built and dismantled in a relatively short period of time. 

a cursory look at the economy of the Western bloc shows it has still retained some of its high-tech manufacturing base but it is losing fast to the cheaper and equally robust manufacturing base of the BRICS nations. Everything is made in China these days, except: microprocessors, software, a few internet giants, some pharmaceutical products, Big Oil products and the all-important military hardware and the defense production industry. Aside from these, the entire economy of the Western bloc is based on financial institutions, the investment banks like: JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, and Goldman Sachs (in the United States), BNP Paribas and Axa Group (in France), Deutsche Bank and Allianz Group (Germany), Barclays and HSBC (UK). 

We need to understand the implications.It takes time to build a manufacturing base, but it is relatively easy to build and dismantle an economy based on financial services. What if Tamim bin Hammad Al-Thani (the ruler of Qatar) decides tomorrow to withdraw his shares from Barclays and put them in some Organization of the Islamic Conference-sponsored bank, in line with Sharia? What if all the Sheikhs of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) withdraw their petro-dollars from the Western financial institutions? Can the fragile financial-services based Western economies sustain such a blow? 

We need to look for comparative advantages and disadvantages here. If the vulnerable Western economy is its biggest weakness, what are its biggest strengths? The biggest strength of the Western bloc is its military might. Got to give credit to the Western hawks: they did which nobody else in the world had the courage to do; they privatized their defense production industry. And as we know, privately-owned companies are more innovative, inventive and in this particular case, lethal. But having power is one thing; and using that power to achieve certain desirable goals is another.

The Western liberal-democracies are not autocracies; they are answerable to their electorates for their deeds and misdeeds. And much to the dismay of pragmatic Machiavellian rulers; the ordinary citizens just can't get over their antediluvian moral prejudices. To overcome this is-ought barrier they wanted a moral pretext to do what they wanted to do on pragmatic economic grounds. That's when 9/11 took place: a blessing in disguise for the Big Oil and the military-industrial complex. Here I would like to clarify that I am not a conspiracy theorist and Obama Bin Laden was not a CIA agent; he merely provided an opportunity to the neo-cons to invade the energy-rich and morally and militarily weak Middle East. By "morally weak" I mean that the Arab autocrats do not rule with consent they are just as afraid of their own people as they are of the external threats. Thus it is very easy for the neo-colonial powers to pit them against one another to exploit their financial and energy resources: the age-old, tried-and-tested "divide and rule" policy. 

The pivotal role played by the Wahabi-Salafi ideology in radicalizing Muslims all over the world is an established fact; this Wahabi-Salafi ideology is generously funded by Saudi Arabia and the Persian Gulf-based Arab sheikhs since the 1973 oil embargo when the price of oil quadrupled and the Arab sheikhs' contribution towards the spiritual "well-being" of Muslims increased proportionally; these petro-sheikhs are in turn propped up by the Western powers since the Cold War; thus syllogistically, the root cause of Islamic extremism is the neocolonial powers' manipulation of the socio-political life of Arabs specifically and Muslims generally to appropriate their energy resources in the context of an energy-starved industrialized world. 

Petroimperialism and 'strategic interests'
In 2012, the Iraqi administration of Nouri al-Maliki offered some oil and gas exploration and production contracts, but those were fixed-fee deals which are more beneficial to states where such resources are located, and not the far more lucrative production-sharing contracts which Big Oil prefers. Here, keep in mind that Iraq has the Persian Gulf's third largest "proven" oil reserves of 140 billion barrels, second only to Saudi Arabia's 265 and Iran's 150 billion barrels (while UAE and Kuwait have 100 billion barrels each). Big Oil didn't pay much heed to the contracts and those were won by the Russian, Chinese and Indian companies, although Big Oil companies operate numerous oil fields in Southern Iraq, in and around Basra.

CARBON NANOTUBES, SPACE ELEVATORS, AND A POSSIBLE HIDDEN SPACE STORY... - Cosmic War

CARBON NANOTUBES, SPACE ELEVATORS, AND A POSSIBLE HIDDEN SPACE STORY... - Cosmic War

Here’s a story that I found this past week that I think is another indicator of “something” going on “out there,” that may not be quite the same story as we’re getting “down here,” and while we’ve blogged about this particular technology before, this story comes with an “update.” We might call it “carbon nanotubes” 2.0. But before we get to that possible hidden story and the day’s high octane speculation, first, the article itself:
There is is, boldly emblazoned in the headline: the Japanese plan to turn the science fiction idea of a “space elevator” into reality in a mere forty or so years:
“Space elevators have long been the realm of science fiction, but the Obayashi Corporation in Japan has now announced that they’re planning to have one up and running in the next 40 years. And, if they’re successful, it could revolutionise space travel – it’s estimated the elevator would be able to take people into space for one percent of the cost of a rocket.
“Although it might sound impossible, a 2012 international study already concluded that space elevators such as this one are scientifically feasible thanks to advances in super-strong carbon nanotubes. “The tensile strength is almost a hundred times stronger than steel cable so it’s possible,” Yoji Ishikawa, a research and development manager at Obayashi, told Matthew Carney from Australia’s ABC.” (Underlined emphases and links in the original; bold and italics emphasis added).
Now, you’ll recall that just last year the Japanese came out with another equally stunning “grand project” idea, namely, to line the equator with solar panels, and beam power back to the Earth in the form of microwaves. You’ll recall that at that time I pointed out that beaming that amount of power back to Earth would most likely “cook” the area around any collection antennae, making the area uninhabitable… to anything. In fact, I pointed out that similar ideas had been studied by the US Air Force in the 1960s. In short, the Japanese were planning, if one read between the lines a bit, to turn the Moon not into a power plant but into a “death star” of sorts. No sooner had I blogged about that story, than a few days later the Chinese called the bluff, and very blatantly proposed turning the Moon into a death star, using similar means. China had called Japan’s bluff.

British PM David Cameron: “Non-Violent Extremists” Including “9/11 Truthers” and “Conspiracy Theorists” are Just as Dangerous as ISIL Terrorists | Global Research

British PM David Cameron: “Non-Violent Extremists” Including “9/11 Truthers” and “Conspiracy Theorists” are Just as Dangerous as ISIL Terrorists | Global Research

Dear Mr Cameron
I write this open letter to you in response to your recent speech at the United Nations calling for military intervention in Iraq and Syria over the threat of ISIL.  In particular I would like to make mention of your reference to the so called threat to society of what you have termed ‘non-violent extremists’, including those who are attempting to bring forward information and evidence about 9/11 which contradicts the official version of events.
Putting aside the direct issue of ISIL for a moment, I find this position on 9/11 evidence to be quite incredible.  It is a position that is either extremely ignorant, or it is a position that goes against freedom and democracy in British society to such an extent that it is scarcely believable.  Huge numbers of extremely credible and professional people across the world are now bringing forward incontrovertible facts and evidence showing us that the events of 9/11 have been systematically covered up, and that the public has been deceived and manipulated on this issue at a quite incredible level.  Just like the public was deceived and manipulated about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
While you are labelling these people who bring this evidence forward about 9/11 as ‘non-violent extremists’, are you aware of what is currently happening in New York City regarding 9/11?
Are you aware that more than 100,000 New York residents have just signed the petition calling for a new investigation into the collapse of World Trade Centre Building 7 through the ‘High Rise Safety Initiative’?
Are you aware that through the fundraising efforts of public groups in the US, there is currently a massive digital screen in the centre of Times Square showing rolling video footage of the controlled demolition of World Trade Centre Building 7 to three million New Yorkers?  This is footage of a collapse of a massive 47 story building (not hit by a plane) that most people have not even been aware of or seen before now.  How can this level of information cover-up be possible in this day and age?
 Are you aware that many members of US Congress are now demanding that President Obama release the 28 redacted pages of the  9/11 Commission Report because there is information in those pages that will shock the nation, according to the two members of Congress who have been authorised to view the pages?
But yet you have just stated to the world that you consider members of the public to be ‘non-violent extremists’ and a part of the ISIL challenge if they merely wish that these facts, evidence, and information about 9/11 be made available to the wider public and that appropriate investigations are held.
I repeat my previous point.  To make that statement to the world as you did, you are either extremely ignorant about this issue, or you are attempting to take a position which is so at odds with a decent, free society that it beggars belief.  I find it difficult to believe that the Prime Minister of Britain would be unaware of what I have stated here, and therefore I have to believe that it is the latter scenario that is most likely.
Just to reinforce my point here, according to what you have said, because of their views on 9/11, or because of the evidence they have brought forward, you consider the following people to be ‘non-violent extremists’ who are a part of the challenge that society faces with the ISIL threat:
·         Members of US Congress who have called for the 28 redacted pages of the 9/11 Commission Report to be released
·         100,000 members of the New York public for formally supporting and requesting a new investigation into the collapse of World Trade Centre Building 7 on 9/11
·         Dozens of first responder fire fighters who risked their lives on 9/11 and who lost 343 of their colleagues that day, including those who formed the organisation ‘Fire Fighters for 9/11 Truth’
·         More than 2,200 professional architects, engineers, and demolition experts from the organisation ‘Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth’
·         Norman Minneta – US Secretary of Transport during 9/11 who had his formal testimony to the 9/11 investigation panel stricken from the record
·         Richard Clarke – US Head of Counter Terrorism during 9/11
·         Numerous family members of the victims of 9/11
The above list is just a very quick start, but gives a feel for the type of people who you are now labelling as ‘non-violent extremists’ and a part of the battle against ISIL because of their views about 9/11 or the evidence they are bringing forward.  According to your speech to the United Nations, we now need to bring in legislation that will be able to shut down internet sites that bring forward the information and the evidence that the people listed above have been trying to highlight for investigation.  That to me sounds like extremist behaviour.  In fact, that sounds to me like the words of someone who is supporting an attempted cover up of monumental proportions.
It seems that everyone now acknowledges that we were deceived and manipulated on the issue of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq in order to take us to war.  It also looks like we have been deceived and manipulated on a grand scale regarding the true facts about 9/11.  So, on this basis, why should you or anyone else believe one word about what the United States is saying about the threat of ISIL?
You have already attempted to take the UK to war in Syria on the basis of alleged evidence against the Assad government that has since proven to be inconclusive at best. Now just a few months later you are once again attempting to take the UK to war with Syria, this time because you now have conclusive evidence of a new and different threat.  Meanwhile, you consider anyone who holds views about 9/11 that are contrary to the official story to be ‘non-violent extremists’.
Putting aside the direct issue of ISIL, which seems to be clouded in uncertainties in terms of exactly who they are, who and how they have been created and supported, and what their wider threat is to the world, I find your comments at the United Nations about the other aspects of this issue to be quite incredible.
9/11 is the event that launched the so called global war on terror and military action in the Middle East.  It is now incontrovertible that we have been deceived and manipulated on a large scale about the true facts of 9/11.  Getting the true facts about 9/11 runs right to the heart of all the issues we currently see in the Middle East and the so called war on terror.  For you to label ordinary, caring, and patriotic members of the public as ‘non-violent extremists’ simply for asking these questions about 9/11 and bringing forward this evidence, and to state that these types of internet sites should be censored, then I have to say that it is you who are the extremist, in the extreme.
The truth facts and evidence about 9/11 are now coming forward and there is a tidal wave of growing awareness as people are now getting to see this information, as shown by what is happening in New York City as we speak.  It cannot be covered up by any crude efforts by the UK government to censor the internet or to give these people an extremist label.  It is far too late for that.  For anyone in office to continue to support the attempted suppression of this information will simply result in them being positioned on the wrong side of history.
Yours sincerely,

"NAME: The master key to the entire system’s/CROWN CORPORATION’S game. The NAME is the lynch pin to the entire legal/control construct. Without a LEGAL NAME, which is your consent by agreeing to be said NAME, the system vampires cannot literally feed on your life blood/creation source energy that is typically shown in the physical materials we collect. It is only the CONSENT to be/use/have a LEGAL NAME/Mark of the Beast that is required for your absolute spiritual contract/deal with the devil motif to be in FULL FORCE AND EFFECT with you as a SLAVE and them as MASTER. For PROOF of this, look and see how much of your life/existence involves a LEGAL NAME and you will see the measure of control the system has over you."

"We are clearing this reality of these parasites exponentially now where universal law reigns supreme where none shall or can trespass. They are masters of deception so do not let your loving compassion be used against you, something that has been their most powerful tools. The bio-borg entities are already lifeless and are dependent only on being able to suck the life out of you but, like every vampire, they cannot enter your reality without an invitation. Every use of the legal NAME is the only invitation they need so best cut your ties and consent with that. Just get this concept and you have already cut the puppet strings and your causal ability returns instantly in relation to your ability to be responsible with that ultimate of powers.
To the “walking dead” (and you know what you are) , your time is over, your deceptions are powerless and now moment by now moment, you are being erased from consciousness for the invading parasites you are. We, of the living soul, are awake, aware and reclaiming our reality where yours never existed. In short, yes, you are doomed. Have a nice day!"

Europe & China Start Direct Trading In Euros & Yuan As De-Dollarization Expands | Zero Hedge

Europe & China Start Direct Trading In Euros & Yuan As De-Dollarization Expands | Zero Hedge

 
De-dollarization has been an ongoing theme hidden just below the surface of the mainstream media for more than a year as Russia and China slowly but surely attempt to "isolate" the US Dollar. Until very recently, direct trade agreements with China (in other words, bypassing the US Dollar exchange in bilateral trade) had been with smaller trade partners. On the heels of Western pressure, Russia and China were forced closer together and de-dollarization accelerated from Turkey to Argentina as an increasing number of countries around the world realize the importance of this chart. However, things are about to get even more dramatic. As Bloomberg reports, China will start direct trading between the yuan and the euro tomorrow as the world’s second-largest economy seeks to spur global use of its currency in a "fresh step forward in China’s yuan internationalization." With civil unrest growing on every continent and wars (proxy or other) at tipping points, perhaps, just perhaps, the US really does want rid of the weight of the USD as a reserve currency after all (as championed here by Obama's former right hand economist)... now that would be an intriguing 'strategy'.

As Bloomberg reports, China will start direct trading between the yuan and the euro tomorrow as the world’s second-largest economy seeks to spur global use of its currency...
The euro will become the sixth major currency to be exchangeable directly for yuan in Shanghai, joining the U.S., Australian and New Zealand dollars, the British pound and the Japanese yen. The yuan ranked seventh for global payments in August and more than one-third of the world’s financial institutions have used it for transfers to China and Hong Kong, the Society for Worldwide International Financial Telecommunications said last week.

“It’s a fresh step forward in China’s yuan internationalization,” said Liu Dongliang, an analyst with China Merchants Bank Co. in Shenzhen.

The move will lower transaction costs and so make yuan and euros more attractive to conduct bilateral trade and investment, the People’s Bank of China said today in a statement on its website. HSBC Holdings Plc said separately it has received regulatory approval to be one of the first market makers when trading begins in China’s domestic market.

...

China’s trade with European Union nations grew 12 percent from a year earlier to $404 billion in the first eight months of 2014, according to data from the Asian nation’s customs department. That compares with just $354 billion with the U.S. during the period.

French and German companies lead among countries outside of greater China in the use of the yuan, according to a July report by HSBC that was based on a survey of 1,304 businesses in 11 major economies that have ties with mainland China. Some 26 percent of French corporates and 23 percent of German companies were using the currency to settle trade, the highest proportions apart from mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan.

...

“Given the appointments of renminbi clearing banks in Frankfurt and Paris, today’s announcement is largely expected,” Australia & New Zealand Banking Group Ltd.’s economists led by Liu Li-gang wrote in a research note today. The agreement marks a “significant milestone” in yuan internationalization as the euro is the only G3 currency that has not had direct conversion with the yuan, Liu said.
The chart below suggests the increasing push for de-dollarization across the 'rest of the isolated world' may be a smart bet...

The internationalization of the Yuan (or implicit de-dollarization by the rest of the world) appears to go unnoticed by the administration (and mainstream media)... which makes one wonder - is this the strategy after all? As Obama's former chief economist noted:
what was once a privilege is now a burden, undermining job growth, pumping up budget and trade deficits and inflating financial bubbles.

To get the American economy on track, the government needs to drop its commitment to maintaining the dollar’s reserve-currency status.
Given this analysis it strikes us that today we are in the midst of an extremely rare historical event – the relative decline of a world superpower. US global geopolitical dominance is on the wane – driven on the one hand by the historic rise of China from its disproportionate lows and on the other to a host of internal US issues, from a crisis of American confidence in the core of the US economic model to general war weariness.

This is not to say that America’s position in the global system is on the brink of collapse. Far from it. The US will remain the greater of just two great powers for the foreseeable future as its “geopolitical multiplier”, boosted by its deeply embedded soft power and continuing commitment to the “free world” order, allows it to outperform its relative economic power. As America’s current Defence Secretary, Chuck Hagel, said earlier this year, “We (the USA) do not engage in the world because we are a great nation. Rather, we are a great nation because we engage in the world.”

Nevertheless the US is losing its place as the sole dominant geopolitical superpower and history suggests that during such shifts geopolitical tensions structurally increase. If this analysis is correct then the rise in the past five years, and most notably in the past year, of global geopolitical tensions may well prove not temporary but structural to the current world system and the world may continue to experience more frequent, longer lasting and more far reaching geopolitical stresses than it has in at least two decades. If this is indeed the case then markets might have to price in a higher degree of geopolitical risk in the years ahead.

China warns against foreign meddling in Hong Kong protests - Press TV

Thousands of protesters remained on the streets in Hong Kong on September 29, 2014. 

China has warned against any foreign meddling in the recent protests in Hong Kong, saying the ongoing pro-democracy rallies in the city are “illegal”.
Pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong remained camped out in the centre of the global financial hub on Monday.
Organizers of the protests have said that as many as 80,000 people have thronged the streets in the city since Friday.
The rallies have reportedly received support from some foreign countries including the United States and Britain.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said, "Hong Kong is China's Hong Kong. Hong Kong is purely our internal affair.”
"We are resolutely opposed to any foreign country using any method to interfere in China's internal affairs,” she added.
Riot police withdrew on Monday, after overnight clashes with protesters in which police forces used batons and lobbed tear gas canisters.
Also on Monday, shares fell and Hong Kong’s dollar dropped to a six-month low while some schools, businesses, and banks closed down as a result of the protests.
The unrest was triggered after China refused to allow open nominations for the city’s next chief executive in 2017, forcing the voters to choose from a list of two or three candidates selected by a nominating committee.
Activists insisted that the region’s citizens must be able to elect the chief executive. They believe the decision raises fears that candidates will be screened for loyalty to Beijing.
China has said it will introduce universal suffrage for the city’s 2017 election, but wants a committee to approve the candidates.
Hong Kong is a special administrative region of China. The financial hub has enjoyed substantial political autonomy since 1997, when its leadership returned to China after about a century of British colonial rule.

Eines der geopolitischen Ziele der Amerikaner im Kampf gegen den Islamischen Staat ist offenbar die Stärkung des Nato-Mitglieds Türkei. Die Türkei hat, von den Amerikanern offenbar toleriert, Waffen an den IS geliefert. Die gigantischen Flüchtlingszahlen aus der Türkei dürften falsch sein. Die Türkei will, dass sich die PKK im Kampf gegen den IS aufreibt. So könnte Ankara verhindern, dass jemals ein kurdischer Staat auf ihrem Territorium gefordert wird. Für die Nato ist eine stabile Türkei in der aktuellen Krisensituation von größter strategischer Bedeutung.

Der Kanton Kobane im Norden Syriens wird seit Donnerstag vom Islamischen Staat (IS) von fünf Seiten mit schweren Waffen angegriffen. Der IS setzt dabei 50 Panzer und schwere Waffen ein, die Augenzeugen zufolge teilweise aus der Türkei über die Grenze transportiert wurden.
«Die Türkei will offenbar mit Hilfe des IS die Selbstverwaltungsstrukturen in Rojava, in denen sämtliche Bevölkerungs- und Religionsgruppen die Gesellschaft gemeinsam gestalten, zerstören», kritisiert Martin Dolzer, Soziologe und Menschenrechtler, der gerade von einer Delegation aus der Region zurückgekehrt ist.
Das Ziel der Türkei ist die es, im Schatten des Krieges gegen die Islamisten die kurdische PKK zu zerschlagen. Der türkische Staatspräsident Recep Tayyip Erdogan hat sich für die Schaffung einer «Sicherheitszone» im Nachbarland ausgesprochen. Erdogan forderte am Freitag in Istanbul nach seiner Rückkehr von der UN-Vollversammlung außerdem erneut eine Flugverbotszone in Syrien. Zu Einzelheiten wolle er erst nach Diskussionen mit der Regierung öffentlich Stellung nehmen, sagte er. Das Parlament in Ankara werde am kommenden Donnerstag über eine mögliche Unterstützung einer internationalen Militäroperation gegen den IS durch die Türkei beraten.
Schon seit langem arbeitet die AKP-Regierung offenbar mit dem IS zusammen. Nun fordert sie genau in Rojava eine Pufferzone, die darauf hinauslaufen würde, dass die Türkei militärische Kontrolle über das Gebiet erlangen würde. Kurdische Menschenrechtsorganisationen aus der Türkei berichten, dass etwa 20.000 Flüchtlinge vor dem IS aus Kobane in die Türkei geflohen seien – und nicht wie von Regierungsvertretern behauptet 130.000. Diese Desinformationspolitik sei der Strategie geschuldet, Kobane zu entvölkern.
Die Angriffe der USA gegen den IS im Irak hatten die Dschihadisten zum Teilrückzug in ihr Zentrum nach Syrien getrieben. Von dort haben sie ihre Angriffe nun vornehmlich gegen die kurdischen Gebiete gerichtet.
«Die USA und ihre Bündnispartner haben in ihrer Besessenheit für den Sturz von Baschar al-Assad in Syrien zum Erstarken des IS damit zur Destabilisierung der Region beigetragen. Die Luftangriffe in Rakka und auf die vom IS kontrollierten Ölfelder haben mit dazu geführt, dass der IS seine Kräfte in Kobane zusammengezogen hat und dort mit aller Macht angreift. Es ist zynisch, nicht zuerst die mehr als 400.000 Menschen dort zu schützen. Umfangreiche humanitäre Hilfe muss sofort anlaufen», kommentiert der Bundestagsabgeordnete Andrej Hunko von der Links-Partei.
Die Türkei hat Angaben zur Zahl kurdischer Flüchtlinge aus Syrien einem Bericht der Frankfurter Allgemeinen Sonntagszeitung (FAS) zufolge stark übertrieben. Das UN-Flüchtlingshilfswerk UNHCR hatte am Donnerstag mitgeteilt, mehr als 144 000 Menschen seien vor der IS-Terrormiliz aus der Region Ain Al-Arab (kurdisch: Kobane) im Norden Syriens in die Türkei geflüchtet. Diese Angaben habe das UNHCR offenbar ungeprüft von der Türkei übernommen, schrieb die Zeitung am Samstag weiter.
Tatsächlich seien nur 15 000 bis 20 000 Menschen gekommen, zitierte die FAS die Bürgermeisterin der türkischen Grenzstadt Suruc, Zühal Ekmez. Aus politischen Gründen werde die Zahl jedoch weit übertrieben. Die Türkei wolle damit ihrem Plan Vorschub leisten, die ihr unliebsamen autonomen Kurdengebiete in Syrien zu menschenleeren «Pufferzonen» zu erklären. Der türkische Ministerpräsident Ahmet Davutoglu sprach am Freitag sogar von mehr als 160 000 Flüchtlingen.
Auch Hunko sieht die türkischen Flüchtlingszahlen mit Skepsis. Er sagte den Deutschen Wirtschafts Nachrichten: «Bereits im Jahr 2013 sind bei einigen Flüchtlingslager in der Türkei Ungereimtheiten aufgefallen. Bestimmte Flüchtlingslager wurden weder internationalen Beobachtern noch der türkischen Opposition gezeigt. Es besteht der Verdacht, dass dort islamistische Kämpfer ausgebildet wurden. Wir haben Hinweise, dass mit Rotkreuzfahrzeugen Waffen geliefert wurden. Die Lager wurden auch zur Versorgung von verwundeten islamistischen Kämpfern verwendet
Hunko geht davon aus, dass die Türkei mit dem IS zusammenarbeitet, um die PKK endgültig aufzureiben. Hintergrund ist eine Pufferzone, die die UN dort nach türkischen Vorstellungen einrichten soll. Hunko: «De facto würde das türkische Militär diese Zone kontrollieren. Damit kann die Türkei sicherstellen, dass der Wunsch der Kurden nach einem eigenen Staat nicht an ihrer Grenze erfüllt wird. Daher werden nun auch die Peschmerga-Kämpfer im Osten unterstützt. Sie sind für die Amerikaner wichtig, um weiter freien Zugang zu den wichtigen Ölvorkommen im Osten zu haben. Für diese Strategie spricht auch, dass der Friedensprozess zwischen der Türkei und der PKK faktisch aufgekündigt wurde.»
