Continuing to show footage of Brenton Tarrant's partisan attack on a New Zealand Mosque, Turkey's Erdogan has threatened deaths by Turkish hands in the manner of the Ottoman victory over ANZAC forces in Gallipoli (archived). This has created a diplomatic failure cascade with Australia as Australian Prime minister Scott Morrison cannot get satisfaction with any explanation out of his ambassador from Turkey. The events at Gallipoli are historically important as the beginning of Australia's shared meaning as a young nation and as the last grand victory of the Ottoman Empire before they were relegated to just being the Turks.
The aftermath of Tarrant's action is becoming quite an international phenomenon in a way very few lone partisan actions have ever been. It certainly appears to be doing wonders for Turkish national identity.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has begun screening footage of eco-terrorist Brenton Tarrant's partisan attack in New Zealand for campaign rallies ahead of local elections (archived). This is in contrast to other fiat sovereigns trying and failing to censor the video and manifesto contents. Erdogan is one of three figures named by Tarrant in his socialist manifest as people who ought to be killed by anyone wishing to join his fight. The other two are Germany's Mother Merkel and London Mayor Sadiq Khan. Tarrant further elaborated his dreams of replacing the evil of undiscriminating socialism with a differently evil collection of diverse smaller socialisms.
Former Taliban leader Mullah Omar, whose 2013 death was only revealed two years later, reportedly lived out his years after the US invasion separated from a US base by a very walkable 3 mile distance (archived). The nearby Forward Operating Base Wolverine held a garrison of 1000 soldiers during the period and frequently hosted US and allied special operations forces. Even though the US and some Tajiks "won" their initial war over the Taliban in 2 months (archived), the US has been continuously fighting a war in Afghanistan against the Taliban and others since October 7th, 2001.
In an unsealed indictment issued by the US District Court in Washington reveals 39 year old Air Force counter intelligence officer Monica Witt defected to Iran taking substantial "US National Security" secrets with her (archived, archived). The long time between the 2013 defection and the 2019 unsealing of the indictment suggests the USG is very reluctant to let the news get out that they are indeed suffering defections despite substantial propaganda trying to sell the US Slave empire as the place to defect to.
Over the weekend the Bank of England revealed their willingness to extend Airstrip One's domestic mammy state policies to foreign reserve deposits places in their trust by explicitly denying the Venezuelan government's right to retrieve their gold (archived). Venezuela under Maduro's leadership has been attempting to repatriate their foreign gold reserves in spite of obstruction by Airstrip One in the leadup to the US regime change effort going live.
Meanwhile Israel, "Greatest Ally" of the USG decided on Sunday to support the USG line on Venezuela days later than the rest of USG's dwindling allies (archived).
Finally over the weekend Yellow Jacket protesters convened for the 11th consecutive weekend. Numerous French casualties were suffered at the hands of Macron's forces including a protest leader whose eye was taken from him (archived). The despot Macron has lauded foreign meddling in Venezuela's democracy, demanding the Maduro's recent election be invalidated while his own Presidential term be sustained in spite of widespread French opposition to his policies and his person.
The Syrian government has proposed exercising their right of self defense by the "rules-based" Pantsuitist international order by executng a "mirror" retaliatory strike against Israel's Tel Aviv International Airport (archived). Syria's permanent representative to the UN offered:
Isn’t time now for the UN Security Council to stop the Israeli repeated aggressions on the Syrian Arab Republic territories?…
Or is it required to draw the attention of the war-makers in this Council by exercising our legitimate right to defend ourself and respond to the Israeli aggression on Damascus International Civil Airport in the same way on Tel Aviv Airport
Israel fired several rounds of airstikes into Syria overnight killing 4 Syrian soldiers and injuring more (archived). Israel is describing the round of missiles which lead to Syrian deaths as retaliation after Syrian air defenses intercepted the bulk of an earlier strike which Israel demanded Syria allow to proceed unmolested. Israel claims that the earlier missiles were intended to strike Iranian forces allied with Syria and for that reason Syrian should have let missiles fired by a belligerent party to strike an allied party inside of Syria unmolested.
The ongoing pretense projected by the criminal organization calling itself the United States Government that it can meaningfully sanction foreigners continues to embarass as NASA has had to withdraw an speaking invitation to Roscosmos Director General Dmitry Rogozin (archived). NASA extended the invitation to Rogozin in reciprocity after the director of NASA carried out an official visit to Russia, but it turns out Rogozin is on one of the many US sanctioned persons lists and the rescinded this invitation to a foreign dignitary.
Lately the USG's pretense it can act against foreigners for their transactions with other foreigners has led to three way tensions with China and Canada after the CFO of Huawei was arrested in Canada where she awaits potential extradition because the USG imagines it can sanction Iran.
Longtime Pantsuit affiliated "national security" journalist William Arkin has quit NBC over the editorial pivot by NBC and Pantsuit at large to an overt Pro-War stance. Historically Pantsuitist have been covert in their anti-peace tendencies, but Trump as forced them into a corner with his efforts to curtail self destructive USG military adventures. Arkin's missive of resignation, rambling as it is, is reproduced below for the record: Continue reading →
In the wake of Donald Trump's move to take the US out of the Hillary Clinton's Syrian civil war, the country is beginning to return to normal (archived). The Kurds in a move observer in the US may find puzzling, have swiftly pivoted towards trying to ingratiate themselves to the Assad regime now that the US soldiers they had been using as human shields are leaving. The Kurds readiness to turns towards Assad suggests they'd been keeping more friendly with the regime than the USG was willing to believe, and that the Kurds didn't have all that much faith in USG delivering them an independent Kurdish state.
Now the Kurds find themselves with the Turks to the north, who are especially motivated to do to the Kurds what Turks normally do to Kurds in order to prevent USG armed and trained Kurdish militants from causing them problems. Thusly it is appearing that after the US intervention, lasting changes are likely to be limited to little more than an augmentation of the distrust and resentment held by all parties involved towards the USG.
