Dear Friend of America's Survival,
My new column, "America's Marxist 'Allies' in Syria," is now in our Special Reports section as well as Renew America and NewsWithViews.
This guy Quin Hillyer, supposedly a "conservative," is really off-base. His article, "Trump betrays Kurds, helps ISIS," is pure junk. He makes no mention of the Kurds' Marxism. He writes for the Washington Examiner.
You know conservatism is in bad shape when they can't recognize, or even acknowledge, a Marxist right in front of their faces.
I instead recommend Alex Newman's article from several years ago, "Obama Showers Support on Communist Terrorists in Syria, Iraq." He noted, "All of the support means, in short, that the Obama administration was once again openly and unlawfully providing material support to a designated terrorist organization. Similar activities by an everyday U.S. citizen would and often do see that citizen promptly thrown into prison."
The Obama policy of funding the Marxist PKK is what Trump has effectively stopped with his withdrawal of U.S. forces from northern Syria.
It's amazing so many "conservatives" have joined the left in supporting the Marxist PKK/YPG.
Even the Wall Street Journal ran an article about our "allies," titled, "America's Marxist Allies Against ISIS."
The article noted: "The Kurdish guerrilla groups pledge allegiance to Abdullah Ocalan, the PKK chief imprisoned on a Turkish island since 1999. From jail in 2005, he established PKK affiliates that evolved into today’s YPG, HPG and PJAK.The PKK and affiliates have car-bombed Turkish cities, kidnapped hundreds and killed Turkish and Kurdish state employees. In 2009, the U.S. Treasury Department designated their leadership as significant narcotics traffickers. "
Turkey has every right to defend itself and its citizens.
Regarding their Marxism, the Journal article noted, "The PKK practices an offshoot of Marxism it calls Democratic Confederalism. The group’s utopian goals echo those of some Cold War-era leftist militias. It aims to create a Maoist-inspired agrarian society that opposes landowning classes, espouses gender equality and distances itself from religion. Its guerrillas speak of a leaderless society of equals but also glorify Mr. Ocalan with fanatical devotion. "
Alexander Litvinenko, the former KGB officer, identified Ocalan as KGB.
