ISIL inside Kobani.
amiel, Friday 26 June 2015 - 11:02:17 // comment: 0

ISIL enters Kobani.

It probably would not take much in the way of cooperation to facilitate ISIL raids into the town of Kobani from Turkey early in the week. But that is likely not the way it happened. On the morning of June 26th, Kurdish (YPG) and Syrian Opposition forces reported confronting multiple pockets of ISIL fighters in Kobani. ISIL seems focused on creating mayhem by taking and holding hostages in the town.

The raid by ISIL probably represents the group's response to the looming potential of substantial military operations in Raqqah. ISIL claims of 'successes' in Kobani are described as 'subterfuge' for PR purposes; though the methods of wearing the uniforms of Free Syrian Army FSA militants and flying the flag of western backed FSA on their vehicles when entering the town were successful.

ISIL are said to have engaged in firing on opportunistic Civilian targets after reaching the town and are currently holding civilian hostages.

News of operations aimed at freeing civilians and neutralizing ISIL elements in Kobani are reaching responsible new agencies as of the time of this writing.

The United States is backing rebel groups in Syria and will continue to back anti-government groups, in the face of barrel bombs dropped on civilians... what else could a people of conscience do?

Umm al-Qusayr and Tall Asnan/ Tall Jimah have simular/identical potentials
amiel, Sunday 12 April 2015 - 19:34:48 // comment: 0

Significant Syrian Army positions at Ard al Majdal, Ard al Fuwaydah, Al-Masturah; positioned more or less 'interposed' with ISIL and Kurdish forces. At Aqrabah, Syrian Army has a functional role in the fighting at Tal Makhatha. Prognosis: ISIL will encircle Kurdish forces to the east at at least two locations between Umm al-Qusayr and Tal Makhatha.

It is not the size of the dog in the fight. Always been the dilema, and the expectation, and the concern. No suprise to anyone.

Al-Masturah, Khuraytah, Al-Husayniyah
amiel, Wednesday 18 February 2015 - 07:29:12 // comment: 0

Areas of noted Syrian army presence are in and around: Al-Masturah, Khuraytah, Al-Husayniyah.

Mount Abdulaziz or "Ghurah" is approximate southernmost area of noted ISIL presence relative to above Syrian Army presence. Topology indicates mountainous area that runs east and west located to the west of Al Haskah; south of Tal Tamer.

Mountainous area may provide similar overlook of areas along highways 716 to the north/ northeast; as well as a road running parallel to the north; contains a fork that intersects at Al-Masturah, Khuraytah, Al-Husayniyah where Syrian army are located with YPG to the north and ISIL to the south.

Interesting here as the major roads to the north and south of the mentioned mountainous location connect to, and are major roadways connecting Ar Raqqah.

Syrian forces join with ISIL fighters in Syria.
amiel, Thursday 22 January 2015 - 05:52:47 // comment: 0

Syrian forces join with ISIL fighters in Syria in the fighting in Hasaka, Khuraytan, Tal Brak, Tall Hamis, and Tall Ma`ruf against Kurdish fighters along a front that is currently hewn by ethnicity and geography.

These areas are populated by Kurdish people whom have recently been challenged by the combined force of the Syrian military and ISIL together.

Most significant in this is the timing of this first of the occurance of Syrian forces and ISIL working together. It has been announced that military operations against Mosul are underway; with several preliminary goals having already been reached. Mosul is where a significant number of reports of ongoing abuses such as rapes and executions have reached responsible reporting outlets. A major military force operating in the areas listed would serve to 'tie down' a potentially substantial number of fighters, making them unavailable on the Mosul 'front'.

Secondly, an alliance or other working arrangement between Bashar al-Assad and the ISIL forces (which everyone watching wondered on the eventuality of); such an alliance if proven to be true, would substantially change the current foreign policy formulas for many.

Bashar's timing might be considered bad in this instance as the American Republican party now controls both the United States House and Senate. This means that he's made his move at a time when the only thing that stands between him and the wrath of US conservative legislators (who truely don't like him) is president Barrack Obama. And we already know where his head is at on this. It's a case of screwed if you do and screwed if you don't. Fact's seem to indicate that he already did.

The severed head also had a cigarette in its mouth. It is unclear who carried out the decapitation but the message was obvious.

A senior figure in Islamic State’s police force in Syria, which has carried out beheadings, was himself found decapitated in the eastern province of Deir Al-Zor

There appear to be some rather serious and severe problems with Level 3 DNS Servers.

Observed beginning on the Dec 19th. DNS query responses appear to contain incorrect resolution (answers) for some DNS queries.

This is symptomatic of DNS hijacking; although I will not make that determination here. Careful, as such incorrect resolution provides the plumbing for MAN-IN-THE-MIDDLE in HTTP requests (potentially transparent to the user)... which may in turn be used to create framework for even larger exploits.

In the words of the Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, "... Kobani is about to fall".
amiel, Saturday 11 October 2014 - 00:50:48 // comment: 0

By all rational appearances Turkey is working on the behalf of ISIL.

Here's some simple evidence that supports that:

In His own words the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said,"... Kobani is about to fall". At that same moment in time there were (are) thousands of capable, willing Kurdish volunteers taking a physical battering and with some thirty two (32) eventually being killed at the Turkish border by the Turkish military who have been directed to prevent fighters from crossing the Turkish border into Kobani to assist with the defense of Kobani. An incident with the Turkish military resulted in several people being shot at the border earlier today. The people were Kurds.

The Turkish President 's promose to act to prevent the fall of Kobani one week ago, comes across as a ruse (American slang term for 'trick') designed to convince the world that the Kurds in Kobani would be safe, protected by Turkey; while all along it appears, Turkey planned to do nothing to prevent the slaughter.

Turkey's Erdogan apparently intends to rely on rhetoric at this point to avoid blame for Turkey's lack of action; continually using the term 'the West' when responding for calls for action. Apparently intending that recent history be re-written to blame the United States in this apparent orchestrated double-cross.

Truth is, there is no scenerio that will work against ISIL.

Imagine this... Two divsions cross the Turkish border, in a 'pincer' manuver moving swiftly south 60 miles or so, encircling the massed ISIL fighters. No problem to do. Several things result; amongst them are that 5,000 ISIL fighters agree to surrender (just a scenerio).

So what happens then. What happens to them? Think a year down the line. How about ten years... these people will be fed, clothed and sheltered. Legal issues will emerge, some will succeed in being released. And so on.

I think that we were all thinking that Turkey would do what America and the rest of the civilized world will not do...
