Long article on the Russian South Front blog about the various Syrian pro-government forces, some of which are privately funded by Syrian businessmen/gangsters, the Air Force Intelligence or foreign parties (Iranian, Iraqi, Lebanese).

Syria's Armed Forces in the 7th Year of War

Quote:
In and of itself, the existence of such a heterogeneous mass of formations that are not fully controlled by Damascus means a time bomb is being placed under Syria (and not just under its government), makes it more difficult to implement ceasefires and demands clear policies to be adopted regarding the future of these formations.

Private Prison Corporation Wrote Texas Bill Extending How Long Immigrant Children Can Be Detained

Quote:
Grassroots groups have given them the grim nickname “baby jails,” and a survivor of a WWII-era Japanese internment camp said the facilities “triggered distressing associations of my own experience as a child.” Reports of inadequate medical care, sexual abuse, improper solitary confinement, and permanently stunted child development proliferate. Most of all, the presence of locks on the doors contradicts the idea of a non-secure facility. “They’re not allowed to leave. That’s jail,” said Mary Small of the Detention Watch Network, a national coalition working on immigration issues.

When they asked Terrance if he had suicidal thoughts, he answered truthfully and plainly: of course he thought about suicide, but he didn’t have any serious plans to do it. The personnel at the ER reacted swiftly.

“They put me on a 72-hour psych hold and sent me to a psychiatric hospital, which I’ll tell you is much worse than prison. They don’t want you to leave,” Terrance told me. “If you have good insurance, they want to keep you there. So after my 72-hour hold was up, they asked me to commit myself voluntarily. And when I refused to do that, they got a judge’s order to keep me locked up.”

Terrance felt he was being held against his will. So he came up with a plan. “I told them I was calling my insurance company and canceling my insurance.”

They released him immediately.

The crux with the proposal is of course al-Qaeda which rules in Idleb and is also an important power in the other areas. Russia offers the de-escalation zones as a way to further negotiations and settlement only under the condition that al-Qaeda is eliminated from the zones. In the press conference with Erdogan Putin emphasized this position:

"About terrorists, in spite of creation of these zones the war on terror will be ongoing - against such organizations as so-called Islamic State, Jabhat al-Nusra and those ones that are put on the list of terrorist organizations approved by the United Nations," Putin said.
But by now the "rebels" are to a large part associated with Jabhat al-Nusra aka al-Qaeda. The al-Qaeda terrorist hardcore is the backbone of their army. The U.S. sees al-Qaeda, at least temporarily, as a valuable proxy. They will surely not agree to give up on that.

The draft proposal is another attempt to get Turkey and the U.S. to finally admit that there is an al-Qaeda problem, that a UN designated terrorist organization is at the core of these areas, and that no peace can be achieved unless al-Qaeda and the associated elements are eliminated. I doubt very much that Turkey and the various sponsors of al-Qaeda in Syria will agree to that plan. The Russian government surely knows this but it sees an advantage in dragging the problem into the open whenever possible.

Bernie Farber, a longtime observer of extremist organizations, doesn’t believe SOO Canada is anything but “an old neo-Nazi motorcycle club,” whose views are derived from a racist ideology and whose animus is aimed at the Muslim community.

He called the JDL’s association with it “a shanda (disgrace). I can’t even conceive of it. It takes my breath away.”

Farber, the executive director of the Mosaic Institute and former CEO of the Canadian Jewish Congress, said the JDL and SOO are brought together by a shared “Islamophobic” viewpoint.

The mainstream media and US officials have repeatedly argued that the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are a “multi-ethnic and multi-religious alliance” fighting against ISIS. However, since the formation of the SDF, the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) and the Kurdish Women’s Protection Units (YPJ) have remained the core of the organization. The US has tried to build some major “Arab faction” among the SDF, but this effort has succeed only partly.

Thus, if Washington wants to storm Raqqah somewhen, it needs to arm YPG and YPJ forces with heavy weapons on an official level or to deploy more US troops in Syria. Meanwhile, Ankara argues that YPG and YPJ are terrorist groups.

But how do you know its not the government setting up these guys as a false flag to make the people against immigration look bad?

We know the FBI sets up people in the US all the time as terrorists to catch them and claim they stopped terrorism....

Because people against immigration need help to look bad?
This reminds me of a twitter conversation where people kept denying nazis showed up to the Berkeley alt-right rally while the nazis at the rally were basically screaming 'look at us, we're nazis!'

Speaking of, Jerome were you at the last rally with infighting between the alt-right and nationalists?

According to court records, when confronted with the evidence, the 26-year-old gay man confessed.

Investigators say Stang admitted to painting the "Heil Trump" and "Fag Church" graffiti himself because he wanted to "mobilize a movement after being disappointed in and fearful of the outcome of the national election."

That's clearly a reverse false flag, they jailed him till he confessed to a crime he didn't commit to make it look like the obviously real graffiti was a fake. Duh don't you know anything?

But the incentive is on the government's side as the people are currently against the mass immigration of an inferior dangerous culture.

There is no advantage for there to be a plot to blame on Muslim immigrants, they are causing plenty of damage on their own and the public is already against the government policy.

I know rational thought is hard when one is infected with liberalism, but if you try ...
