Pentagon rejects that Turkey supports ISIS despite comprehensive proof of them helping sell ISIS stolen oil.
For the past year, there have been numerous reports that ISIS have been transporting the oil they have stolen from Iraq and Syria, to Turkey and this has been greatly facilitated by the Turkish state at the highest levels. It is widely known the oil was being sold and exported by BMZ Ltd owned by Bilal Erdogan, President Erodgan's son. It is extremely unlikely that they are doing this for nothing and tens of millions have probably been siphoned off by the Erdogan family and other key officials and the Turkish economy has no doubt benefitted from an injection of cheap stolen oil sold below world market rates. The Russian Defense Ministry on Dec 2nd revealed the vast scale of the oil smuggling operation which somehow was missed by the NATO/US in the past 2 years.
In the last two months, the dramatic and sad photographs of 3 year old Aylan Kurdi, and his brother lying dead on the shores on a beach in Turkey have finally opened the curtain very slightly on the horrors and terror of war in Syria. It is hard to conceive the trauma of this family first seeing one of their other brothers beheaded by ISIS jihadists, then to flee and then for this man's wife and two remaining young children to drown in the sea whilst attempting to escape. If you were to listen to politicans from the UK all the way up to the present prime minister, you would think they were doing this so they could scab off the social welfare but as anyone knows, this was the act of a family desperate to flee the terror in their home country and get to safety at all costs. However Aylan Kurdi and his brother and mother aren't the only ones to drown or being killed in war, there are tens of thousands dead.
A massive eviction is underway in Dublin. It is at the complex of occupied houses and former factory spaces in Grangegorman.

German Question Discussed by Gralis Dec 15 0 comments
If the outgoing government of a multi-party democracy in post-election coalition-finding hangover suddenly begins to insist that it was not in a state crisis, then you know that it is a democracy crisis. More than that, the whole system of democratic capitalism has come to a point where it represents its own fiscal policy, zero hedge, or zero-sum blackmail gambling, in the sense Heinrich Heine said: He who prints ever more money will end up printing ever more ballot sheets. Democracy is like the electronic lamp in the Greek prison cell that never boots up entirely, and reiterates the first stage of its boot process theoretically indefinitely. If Heine, the 19th century poet who did the sanity check over the generation that left Germany´s current national flag and anthem, had been a phombie generation contemporary then he might have put his proverbial haircut advisory in these terms.
