US Authorities Hide No More That They Support PKK Branch In Syria

The arrest of a Tallahassee man who called for violence against supporters of President Donald Trump has forced the US to officially acknowledge that its main proxy in Syria, the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), is affiliated with the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).

In an official statement released on January 15, the US Department of Justice announced that Daniel Baker has been arrested in Tallahassee by the local police and agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI, for inciting violence against supporters of President Trump.

Baker reportedly issued a call to arms for like-minded individuals to violently confront pro-Trump protestors gathered at the Florida Capitol. He called for others to join him in encircling any protestors and confining them within the Capitol complex using firearms.

Baker is a former U.S. Army Airborne service member who was kicked out of the service after he went AWOL [absent without official leave] before his unit was to deploy to Iraq.

“In 2017, he [Baker] joined the People’s Protection Units (YPG), a group fighting in Syria against ISIS and the Turkish government. He claimed on social media that he was a trained sniper for the YPG, and he can be seen in a documentary film fighting ISIS and Turkish militants,” the Department of Justice’s statement reads.

The statement goes on to admit that the YPG is a sub-affiliate of the PKK, which is designated by the US government as a Foreign Terrorist Organization.

The rare acknowledgment raise serious questions about US movements in Syria. Hundreds of US troops are deployed in northeastern Syria to support the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a coalition mainly made up of YPG units.

For the past six years, the US promoted the YPG as a Syrian force fighting against ISIS to spread democracy, ignoring the group’s clear links with the PKK.

Through the YPG, the PKK maintains strong influence within the SDF and benefit from the US support for the coalition. Washington was warned about this by Turkey years ago, yet choose to ignore this.

The arrest of Baker exposes the double standards of the US. Washington is happy to provide support for groups like the YPG aboard. However, it does not tolerate their pro-violence ideology on its own territory.

PKK is the only democracy in ME beyond Israel.
PKK is LGBT friendly, want to introduce gay marriages, is fighting for Clima Change and against plastic bags in our drinking water, the PKK Central Committee decide what is best for peoples children, plus they want a Central Bank in Kurdistan with usury loans owned by Rothschild, for green freedom.
Therefore we support it.

Yes it is now the Mossad PKK and their leaders only care what their Israeli slave masters order them to do while not giving a shit what happens to their own people anymore just like all the governments in what used to be the west.

Pkk, isisrahell, isis, al qaeda, the Americans support every terrorist formation, they do it for democracy and freedom.


It does not take a Rhodes Scholar to realize that the Kurds have been US and Zionist proxies since the late 60’s along with the Salafist terrorists became the darlings of Langley and Foggy Bottom after they started killing Russians in Afghanistan and are now creating havoc in the Muslim world.


If the US and Russia would work together on getting the planet’s Jew World Order problem corrected. Which is primarily NATO Jews and Zionists and Israel. China would be a non issue and the world would be a much better place for it.


As you know Trump is anti jew,

Ivan Freely

Bullshit. If he was, he wouldn’t let his favorite daughter convert to marry one.


True, but he’s also pro Jew. So that’s a problem.

Jim Allen

Other than the fact US Government IS the Zionist Khazar Pretender World Order, which Russia IS completely opposed, it’s an entirely genius plan.


The lying Jew media here, which Trump has described as America’s biggest problem. So he’s obviously aware of it. Has gone to fanatical extremes to demonize Trump because he’s a populist trying to implement America First which most people support.

Jim Allen

Controlled opposition.

The Maidan demonstrations in early 2014, which led to the overthrow of the legally elected Ukrainian government witnessed an estimated 15,000 people marching in celebration of Stepan Bandera’s 105th birthday. The neo-Fascist Svoboda Party along with the Fatherland Party of Yulia Tymoshenko both supported this commemoration of the former German ally and war criminal. In the late 1930s Stepan Bandera became the leader of the Organisation of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN), the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) was the name of the Ukrainian partisan paramilitary force that arose from the OUN and fought Soviet armies in the 1940s. During World War II the OUN worked with the German occupation and participated in the massacre of Jews, Poles, and Russians.

In 1943 Bandera’s followers massacred 70,000 Poles the majority of whom were unarmed men, women, and children. This mass killing took place in Volyn, Western Ukraine. In the spring and summer of 1943 peasants of Volyn under the leadership of the Galician intelligentsia using bullets, axes and other improvised means assassinated tens of thousands of Poles living in the villages and towns of the region. The political leadership of the OUN had suddenly realised that the Germans might lose the war. So because of the presence of the Polish population the political leadership had simply decided to get rid of that population to prevent Poland’s claim to Volyn. By 1945 the OUN had, in Eastern Galicia, killed 130,000. Many people had their eyes gouged out and were then hacked to death. After WWII the OUN kept fighting against the forces of the USSR and People’s Poland until 1949.


Great idea.
