Once the ostensible reasons of the war that caused the death and displacement of hundreds of thousands of people in Syria are set aside we need to look 200 years back in order to understand what has actually happened. The main target of the “Big Game” that had gradually developed by the onset of 19th century was to disintegrate and weaken Russia and the Ottoman Empire, the two great powers of the North Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Caucasus.
The main playmaker of the time when the USA was not around as a super power and colonialist wars were still raging across the world was Britain. Behind this “Big Game” phrased as “Consolidation of Britain’s domination over her colonies and their routes” in books and courses on international politics, there remained a much deeper and longer-term strategy rather than relationships based on daily interests and short-term plans.
Russia and the Ottoman Empire were systematically turned against one another and drifted into perpetual wars and the peoples of the two giant empires were provoked and incited to riots. Had Russia and the Ottoman Empire allied with each other, they would have probably been the greatest perennial power to oppose Britain. On the contrary both countries were gradually degraded both by external pressures as well as internal turmoil orchestrated by Britain. The result was a fragmented map of the Balkans, Central Asia and the Middle East.
WWI which cost more than 10 million lives according to official figures ended in the disintegration of the Ottoman Empire and Russia. As a result, there emerged a geography with hundreds of thousands of deterritorialized people, communities with shared histories separated by barbed wires, and myriads of warring sides that only served to feed terror. In line with this 200-year-old-plan, what rendered this system to gain strength were the pawns employed to tyrannize the innocent nations of this geography. These pawns pitted the indigenous nations against one another, established states or demolished them, drew new borders leading to changes in maps.
The pawns in question were either treacherous weaklings or those attracted to the flow of divisive ideologies. They were Darwinist, materialist communists that sought an armed struggle, racists or those who remained under the influence of radicalism. They were all organized, trained, and empowered by the same hand, and then cast aside once their services were over.
An analysis into the four-year Syrian war in light of these historical facts would reveal that the same parties who agreed on the Sykes Picot Treaty – which was disclosed by Russia at the time – are again at work today. That is to say, this is another attempt to restore the 200 year old project of the British deep state of disintegrating and dividing the countries of the Middle East. The new map would consist of many small fragmented countries serving its interests. Today with artificial borders drawn on new maps, fragmentation of the countries of the region has commenced concentrating foremost on the division Syria, Iran, Iraq, and Turkey.
Undoubtedly the most convenient elements to use for such operations intending to disintegrate countries are terror organizations. The British deep state led the USA into the occupation of Iraq with deliberate inducements the result of which American foreign policy left Iraq in complete disarray. One of the most horrible organizations, which emanated from this wreckage is ISIS. Guided by the British deep state, the US paved the way for ISIS to emerge as a power in the region. It isn’t coincidental that the British recruits of ISIS outnumber other nationalities or that its notorious cold-blooded killers are fluent English-speakers. It is also noteworthy that its members mostly use British-made weapons. In brief, the British deep state, the main actor in Syria and Iraq, holds ISIS as a pawn in one hand. Which pawn does it hold in its other hand?
In its other hand there exists the Marxist, Leninist terror organization, the YPG/PYD that caused the lives of 40 thousand people in four decades. The YPG/PYD trained the members of all other terror organizations about spreading terror, massacring and becoming suicide bombers. As will be exhibited in the following pages, the British deep state straddles both ISIS and the YPG/PYD. ISIS is a terror organization that spreads terror with the most vulgar practices of radical teachings. YPG/PYD, on the other hand, an organization with mostly homosexual members, is presented by the Western media as the so-called “freedom warriors” and “the power against ISIS.”
Now let’s go back a little, and see how the British deep state has manipulated the Kurdish people in the region, similar to other nations in the past, for its own benefits.
The British deep state’s Plan to use Kurds against Russia and the Ottoman Empire
The British historian Stuart Laycock analyzed the histories of the almost 200 countries in the world to conclude that only 22 countries never experienced a “partial or total” invasion by Britain. Mr. Laycock compiled his analysis in his book, “All the Countries We’ve Ever Invaded: And the Few We Never Got Round To.” He stated that Britain did not invade countries such as Andorra, Chad, Uzbekistan, Mongolia, a small list she thought she would not benefit from.
Beginning by the 17th century, the British started to spread to Asia and Africa, and invaded many countries with India, China, Afghanistan, South Africa being the foremost. To the countries it invaded, the British deep state brought nothing but bloodshed, violence, enslavement, and poverty. Furthermore the peoples of these countries were sent to battlefields they had no relevance to, in order to fight for the British Empire.
Passionate about not losing the region to Russia, Turkey or any other country, the British deep state had always considered Russia’s amity with the Ottoman Empire as a major problem. The ever-increasing geopolitical and geostrategic importance the region has attained with the discovery of oil accelerated the British deep state’s plots, making Armenians, Assyrians, Kurds, Arabs, Turks and other nations in the region the main targets. Academician Dr. Mehmet Temel explains how Britain at that time manipulated the people of the region, especially the Kurds, to drive a wedge between Russia and the Ottoman Empire:
“Britain aimed to complete the wall she wanted to build against Russia with Kurds and used them against Turks, Arabs and Iran. What rendered Kurds so important for Britain was the oil reserves in Iraq. However Britain could not implement its Kurdistan project; the dissent among prominent Kurdish figures and the majority of Kurds being under France’s influence zone required France’s close cooperation… The establishment of a British-friendly country was essential in Minor Asia, so that it could secure the East Mediterranean (The Indian Route).””
The British archives provide insight as to how these well-prepared plans were implemented and executed. Apart from sending pro-Kurdish agents or representatives to the East and Southeast of Anatolia such as Major Noel, the British incited separatist Kurdish intellectuals such as Sheikh Abdul Qadir for provoking them to take advantage from the Wilson Principles. The British documents relate that the ultimate aim of these efforts was to establish an autonomous Kurdish state.
A principle of the British deep state: “Divide, Disintegrate and Rule”
Rather than invading or making third parties invade a country it aims to disintegrate, the British deep state primarily leads a country to disintegration from within. It is certainly a less costly method than an invasion causing much less trouble afterwards. The British deep state mainly follows one course to disintegrate a country: It sets people of different ethnicities, sects, minorities, and even brothers against one another and thus causes conflicts and fights among them.
Division and disintegration fueled by hatred constitutes the main theme of the plot for an easy capture. Such a plot has a high probability of being successful especially in a region like the Middle East where members of tens of different ethnicities and religions live side by side in disunity.
The British deep state members expertly find and provide support to sinister elements to ignite terror, violence and even civil wars. They build the right conditions for division while taking precautions in tandem to minimize any potential social resistance to division. Expert at stripping societies of their “faiths, beliefs, goals, purposes, love, spirit and quality”, the British deep state uses a global network of media members, politicians, pseudo-intellectuals and academicians to reach its goals. Most of the time, many fail to see the organized system behind the propaganda, which makes the world public opinion even more vulnerable to deception.
In the end, countries that are weakened, shrunk and divided through sinister plots become easy targets and are destroyed easily and quickly by the British deep state. The small remainders left are swiftly subdued and condemned to a new form of colonialism.
Only thirty or forty years ago, many would have found it hard to believe that Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Libya would be completely divided and small new states would emerge out of their remains. Similarly, most people wouldn’t believe that Ukraine and Yugoslavia could be divided into smaller states. However, one by one, century-old plans were put into action and countries are now falling apart in line with the British deep state plans.
Prof. Dr. Nadye Mustafa, from the Department of Economy at Cairo University described the current threat of disintegration with the following words: “No large states will be left in the region. All of them will be turned into small emirates and countries. Every oil well will have its own small country watching over it. We should try to work out what we can do to prevent this project. We have to be vigilant and on our guard as a society. Unless we stand against this project together; intellectuals, academicians, journalists, patriots, we will all fade away’.
YPG/PYD are being used to divide Syria
When the British spy Lawrence said, ‘If I could found a Kurdish state, I would be able to eradicate the Turks from history…’, he was also summarizing the century-old policy of the British deep state. Unsurprisingly, in June 1919, British commissioner Colonel Wilson in Baghdad suggested to the British Foreign Office that an independent Kurdistan should be founded with British support.
This so-called ‘Kurdish state’ represented the British deep state dream of tearing apart ‘Turks and Kurds’, who have become flesh and bone over a thousand years in Anatolia, who have molded into one by bonds of Islam and who became a single nation. It also meant tearing apart Arabs, Nusayris, Turkmens and Kurds that became brothers and sisters in Syria and Iraq by turning them into enemies. Clearly, the British deep state is not working to protect or take care of the Kurds, but is only trying to gain an irreligious, unconnected foothold in the region, which it can use against other Muslims and countries.
This point becomes clear in a letter written by Mr. Kohler to Mr. C. Keer during WWI, which is now a part of the secret archives of the British. Kohler says that he does not care about the state of the Kurds or Armenians, but they pay attention to the Kurdish problem, only because of Mesopotamia. The true target of the British deep state is the richness of Mesopotamia and not sharing this wealth with others, most particularly with Russia, Turkey, Iran, Syria and Iraq. This is also the reason behind the plans of dividing the region.
Former British Prime Minister Lord Palmerston also proved with his words how the friendship mask of the British deep state is deceptive: ‘We have no eternal allies, and we have no perpetual enemies. Our interests are eternal and perpetual, and those interests it is our duty to follow.’
The two sides of the Medallion: the PKK and the YPG/PYD
The Kurds are a very precious and important people in the Middle East, known for their centuries- old struggle for recognition in the countries they live in. They were persecuted in post-revolutionary Iran, oppressed under Saddam’s rule in Iraq and weren’t even granted citizenship in Syria. Kurds also went through difficult times in Turkey, and had to suffer the oppression of the terrorist PKK, the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, in addition to the horrible assimilation by the deep state of Turkey. While the operatives of the deep state tormented even the patriotic Kurds, it was the PKK communist terrorist organization, which has been carrying out terrorist attacks in Turkey for the past 40 years, at whose hands the Kurds suffered the most.
This great people, who had lived through very difficult times over the years, finally caught a break under the lead of the statesmen Masoud Barzani in Iraq, while Turkey finally rid itself of its deep state. However, the terrorist PKK changed tactics; it stopped its attacks on the mountains as a part of the “peace process” in Turkey but continued its operations in cities with the new name of “KCK,” or Group of Communities in Kurdistan.
At this point, it would be expedient to look at the situation of the Syrian Kurds, as the state system that the terrorist organization has been trying to build in Turkey has already been established in Syria. After the intense military campaigns by the Turkish army in the 1990s, the PKK militants had to flee to Syria with their leaders. As a result, Syria, yielding to Turkish pressure, deported Abdullah Öcalan, the leader of the PKK, who is responsible for the deaths of 40,000 civil people and Turkish soldiers the execution of 18,000 of his own followers. What was named the Democratic Union Party (PYD) in 2003 is, in truth, nothing but the very same PKK founded by Öcalan. The PYD has made it clear that it accepts Öcalan as its leader and that it reports to Kongra-Gel, in other words to the PKK (Kongra-Gel is the new name of the PKK after the PKK was designated a terrorist organization by the EU and US).
One co-leader of the PYD is Salih Muslim, who is pictured dining with Öcalan, and who gives his speeches under Öcalan posters. The other is Asya Abdullah, a female militant that lives in the PKK base in Qandil.
The orders come from PKK leaders in Qandil; the armed wing of the PYD is the YPG, or People’s Protection Groups. So, Syrian Kurds are severely oppressed under the rule of a Leninist terrorist organization which seeks to build a proletariat dictatorship.
In brief, all the founders of the PYD and the PKK are the same. When the PYD was established, it announced Öcalan as its ideological leader and declared its allegiance to People’s Congress of Kurdistan or Kongra-Gel (KGK). The PYD meetings are held under the PKK flags, and excerpts from Öcalan are read throughout the events. All the YPG militants who make up the armed force of the PYD go through both military and ideological training on Mount Qandil. These trainings are provided by American and British intelligence organizations.
In the 108-page report of Human Rights Watch in 2014, the PYD was held responsible for arbitrary arrests, violation of legal rights, unsolved murders and abductions. The report explained that people were detained without arrest warrants, prevented from seeing their attorneys, tortured and not taken to courts.
Almost every dissident was silenced and there were far too many suspicious deaths in detention. The report declared the PYD a direct affiliate of the terrorist PKK group active in Turkey and warned about its alarming behavior.
Some Western journalists also have made some interesting observations: Jamie Dettmer of the Daily Beast described the YPG, the Syrian arm of the PKK, as despotic: “Kobani Kurds are careful with [their] public criticism of the PYD, fearing retaliation. None who are critical agree to their family names being published.
“Most of the fighters in Kobani are not Syrian Kurds; they are actually members of the PKK, which is designated as terrorist organization by EU and the USA: The commanders calling the shots now in Kobani are not the local municipal leaders trotted out for Western media interviews to highlight the role of women fighters during the siege. They are instead what locals call Qandil Kurds, a reference to the PKK’s mountain-range sanctuary in northern Iraq that extends 30 kilometers into Turkey and contains the separatist movement’s military training camps.”
In the news report by the Wall Street Journal website, Zind Ruken, a PKK female terrorist explained the liaison between the PKK and the PYD as thus: “Sometimes I’m a PKK, sometimes I’m a PJAK, sometimes I’m a YPG. It doesn’t really matter. They are all members of the PKK.”
A communist Kurdish state, under the ostensible authority of the YPG and formed with the support of the US, will find a gateway to the entire Middle East, the Caucasus and to Europe, especially through Turkey, and will be a nightmare to the entire world, starting with the Kurds.
At this point, it is important to make a clear distinction; the Kurds are our family, our honor, our dignity, our friends and the embodiment of our greatest values. On the other hand, the PKK/YPG/PYD is a brutal terrorist organization that seeks to use Kurdish nationalism for its own purposes and wishes to build a communist state base on Leninist violence. It is critical to comprehend and make this distinction while assessing the ongoing situation in Syria.
