On September 23, Turkey Prime Minister, Binali Yıldırım told reporters in the province of Kırşehir that the Turkish response for the upcoming Kurdistan Region independence referendum on September 25 will be political, diplomatic and economic.

“The steps will be taken in close cooperation with Iraq, Iran and other neighboring countries. These measures will have diplomatic, political, economic and security dimensions,” Yıldırım said.

Moreover, Yıldırım described the Kurdistan Region independence referendum as a “wrong decision,”. Yıldırım also said that “Turkey has given the necessary warning in a friendly way since the beginning. But we see that these warnings have not been heeded.”

Yıldırım statement came after he submitted a motion in the Turkish Parliament on September 22 to allow the extension of the Turkish state’s authority to launch cross-border military operations in northern Iraq and Syria for another year.

Meanwhile, Iraqi Army Iraqi Army Chief of Staff General Othman al-Ghanimi arrived to the Turkish Ankara on September 23 and met with his Turkish counterpart Generals Hulusi Akar at the General Staff headquarters in the capital.

According to an official statement of the Turkish Army the two Generals discussed the “illegitimate” Iraqi Kurdish referendum, and stressed the importance of maintaining Iraq’s territorial integrity. The meeting can be considered as an indirect threat to the Kurdistan Region Government (KRG).

In a related Development, Kurdistan President Masoud Barzani confirmed to the French ambassador to Iraq Bruno Aubert at a meeting in Erbil on September 23 that the referendum will be held in September 25 as planned according to an official statement of the Kurdistan Presidency.

“No time is not left to talk about postponing [the Kurdistan Region independence referendum] and the decision is not in the hands of a party or person… The referendum will take place on time,” Barzani told Bruno during the meeting according to the official state.

Furthermore, the KRG denied any reports about postponing the Kurdistan Region independence referendum. By this the KRG closed the door to any easy political solution for the referendum crisis.

    Kurdish independence in Syria and Iraq will be just as futile as trying to grow tomatoes in the middle of the desert.

    • hhabana

      I betcha the Jews could pull that one off!

      Regarding the Kurds, blast them to smithereens so they will be quiet for at least 20-30 years before those Muslim Kurdish women replenish the livestock.

  • FlorianGeyer

    Essentially we will likely have the Kurds supported by Israel and the US surrounded by Turkey, Iran and Syria. The US will not have any proxy terror groups left who are willing or able to fight the war. Will the US and Israel use their own military’s to to fight and die in Kurdish areas completely cut off from any land access?
    I somewhat doubt they will, so as always the Kurds will be left high and dry because of their Gypsy style of short term thought. :)

    • BL

      Gypsy’s gonna gypsy.

      The Iraqis have to make sure that once this is all said and done the gypsies are never in a position to be able to gypsy their host countries again. I suggest kicking every last gypsy out of all major cities and driving them to the mountains or maybe a few small cities in a very small limited area. They must not be let back in any major city otherwise they will again claim it as part of their delusional historically non-existent “Kurdistan”.

      Regarding Syrian gypsies, they must be permanently kicked out of Syria back to Turkey where they originally come from.

      • FlorianGeyer

        Transport all of them to New York and California where they will be loved. :)

        • RichardD

          We already have tens of millions of them, courtesy of the Jews. They’re called illegals. There are large parts of a number of cities where English is not the primary language.

          • FlorianGeyer

            Surely you have it in your heart to care for more illegals Richard. I am sure that Janet Yellen and her colleagues all have refugees staying in their houses ( Mansions) :)

          • RichardD

            If you want some of that compassion, then maybe you should take a ride on the coyote express to the land of no taxes and no tax returns. Unless your an American citizen or legal alien working here.

            If you do that you may want to take a course on how to mumble in some language other than English for when you don’t want to answer questions or talk to Americans.

          • FlorianGeyer

            We have similar problems in the UK with our non indigenous ‘minorities’ that are now a majority in some cities.

          • RichardD

            I hope Brexit doesn’t suffer the same fate as America First.

          • FlorianGeyer

            I fear that it might. It would only temporarily delay the civil wars that will be the biggest Pogroms the world has seen. :)

            My gun trust, we have them over here, is equipped for 9mm machine pistol, .40 S&W folding carbine, belt fed .223/.556, belt fed .308, including mini gun, belt fed .50 BMG, belt fed 20mm and drum fed 20mm Orlikon auto cannon. It’s enough for 200 to 400 people including support personnel. It’s not a direction that I want to see things go. But if they do I’d rather have these capabilities than not have them.

            Sub 2000 in .40 S&W:

            You can get these semi auto Lahti 20mm anti material rifles over here for less than $10,000.00. That can be used either with a bipod or pedestal mount:

          • RichardD

            That’s a tree sleeve for a pedestal mount in the case below the receiver. They would easily fit mounted on the back of a pickup or small flat bed 4×4:

            I had a close encounter at 2:00 AM a couple of months ago in the remote wilderness at elevation during an ET recon contact op with what may have been one or more of these. I heard what ever it was and disengaged to avoid a possible conflict. Because all that I had on me was a compact 9mm hand gun. It didn’t sound like anything that I’m familiar with and it sounded like there may have been more than one of whatever it or they were. You can watch a 2 second video clip at 2:56, 57 in this video:

            This is the 9mm that I had in my pocket with a spare mag in the other pocket:

            They are not allowed where I live :)
            Only the criminals and the state security have such things here.

            Sadly :)

          • RichardD

            Northern Ireland still has some semblance of gun rights. They should be restored to the rest of the UK. Mass shootings were rare here before the dangerous psychiatric drugs that are present in almost all mass shootings and many other crimes were legalized, given out like candy, and deliberately pumped into society in large quantities by the Jew world order miscreants using fraudulent studies showing that they were safe. Big pharma is a Wall Street cash cow.

          • RichardD

            My daily carry. I upgraded from a 85 meter barrel light to a 200 meter barrel light after the close encounter with the unidentified life forms. The .32 acp (automatic Colt pistol) goes in my pocket. The 9 inch by 17 inch soft case goes in my shoulder bag or vehicle.

            .40 S&W coming out of the 16 inch barrel has similar ballistics to a .44 magnum revolver of the type that has been used to stop water buffalo or elephant in an emergency. I also have 30 round magazines for it. If I’d had it on me rather than leaving it in the 4×4 at the foot of the head wall that I climbed. I might of gone looking for whatever was making the noise.

          • FlorianGeyer

            Out of interest, do you need to Zero the assault rifle after re-assembly for the most accuracy at the extended ranges ?

          • RichardD

            If you’re just field stripping it for cleaning no. If the disassembly goes beyond that to the point where the sights are affected, yes. With lasers and tracers at night, the sights are mostly to get you on target. You may need multiple shots to walk it in from there at distance. Unless the electronics are impaired, as they were that night for the entire op both as I was climbing and descending the head wall after the close encounter.

            Which has been a recurring problem on contact ops. The lights worked OK but the gps on my smart phone was showing a mirror image that was the exact opposite of where I was in relation to the ravine coming down the head wall that I was climbing next to. Which put an edge on the entire night and amplified my concern when the creatures started yelling. And is one of the reasons that I decided to get out of there as lightly armed as I was.

            The op down south of Area 51 where the CZ-52 picture was taken was the same type of thing. Except it was the vehicle electronics malfunctioning rather than my smart phone. And I’d had a close encounter with a 36 inch spherical probe at a distance of 75 to 100 feet about chest high off of the ground on a previous op in the same area.

          • RichardD

            CZ-52 in bottle neck 7.62 x 25 in the glove box in case it’s looking like there could be trouble:

            The ‘Southern Poverty Law Centre ‘ aka The Jewish Elite Subversion Centre will not be happy :)

          • RichardD

            It’s tough to make complete Jew slaves out of a well armed citizenry. :)

          • FlorianGeyer

            Yes, that has been a thorn in the sides of all despotic regimes throughout history. For example in the JEW dominated USSR it was generally forbidden to own firearms . In Britain after the advent of the Crossbow that a relatively untrained user could operate accurately, it was forbidden for the citizenry to own one for some years.
            In Britain only those who can demonstrate a sporting, target shooting, vermin control or re-enactment use are generally granted a gun licence.
            No automatic assault rifles or pistols ( other than muzzle loading etc) are permitted.

            The criminals do have them though :)

          • RichardD

            Well at least you can get something which is better than nothing. But then you have those crazy you can’t use a weapon to defend yourself laws which is complete nonsense.

          • FlorianGeyer

            Yes, when not in use, transport or being cleaned they must be kept in an authorised cabinet with all ammunition kept Separately. Ideally locked away in a another room.

            Ironically I had an explosives licence once and they had to be stored in a locked wooden box marked EXPLOSIVES and stored openly in a room so that any Fire Dept personnel could easily identify the box.

          • RichardD

            You can buy black powder here without a license. I keep my guns locked in a floor cabinet or combination safe or filing cabinet where I live. And locked in a vehicle or luggage in a motel room when I’m traveling so that it’s more difficult to steal them. I don’t want a stolen gun report on my record due to negligence.

          • FlorianGeyer

            Its easy to buy the ingredients for Black Powder and Phosgene on Amazon according the UK press :) Amazon are also very helpful with the ” Buyers of *** also bought +++ “.
            It would be difficult to make all this shit up. :)

            The western world is being administered by Muppets. Fuck all works as it should really.

      Don’t mess with the Iraqi Kurds. The Russian’s have their backs!

      “Russian oil major Rosneft will invest in gas pipelines in Iraq’s Kurdistan, expanding its commitment to the region ahead of its independence vote to help it become a major exporter of gas to Turkey and Europe. ”

      https://www.reuters.com/article/kurdistan-rosneft/russias-rosneft-clinches-gas-pipeline-deal-with-iraqs-kurdistan-idUSL5N1LY0TS

      Rosneft is an integrated oil company majority owned by the Government of Russia.

        No comments from our passionate bloggers. Very interesting. It looks like it doesn’t fit the narrative.

  • Pete

    After a decade of war, i’m not sure that anybody has right to judge this kurdish referendum, where the area was mostly peaceful in both wars. I don’t think that there wouldn’t be a third war in iraq, if the iraqi regime commits the same mistakes. So Kurds is better off not be involved in the Sunni-Sia war again. Let Arabs kill each other next time bro.

    • BL

      Shut up retard, no one asked for your opinion

    • John Brown

      The Kurdish leadership is now working openly with and allied to ISIS, Al Qaeda and Israel, so they have now lost all legitimacy and destroyed themselves as a result.

  • Michalis Kane

    Its time to cut the murderers of Turkey in pieces. For all the crimes they have committed against Humanity with the genocides of Armenians, Greeks, Assyrians…

    • BL

      The Kurds were involved in some of those genocides.

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        They are in fact involved in all of them including the Azeri too , Kurds are Khazars like the Jews all from that same region around Turkey.

    Now that Daesh is on the brink of final collapse the Pentagon et al planners need a new excuse to have military bases in the area. Kurdistan that everyone hates, but crucially US is willing to recognise, should be a good platform to continue military presence in the region. Israel and US will plan operations against Iran from the new wonder-country of Kurdistan. But they will fail. Saudi regime underpins everything like this in the region. The sooner they are dealt with, the sooner the region can live in peace.
