Syria’s war: Who is fighting and why (Qui se bat contre qui en Syrie ?)


After four-plus years of fighting, Syria’s war has killed at least hundreds of thousands of people and displaced millions. And, though it started as a civil war, it’s become much more than that. It’s a proxy war that has divided much of the Middle East, and has drawn in both Russia and the United States. To understand how Syria got to this place, it helps to start at the beginning and watch it unfold:

Toxic cloud from Mosul sulfur plant fire suffocates parts of Iraq, Syria and Turkey (EN, FR)


Toxic fumes released by tons of waste at a chemical plant and sulphur mine near the Iraqi city of Mosul that were set on fire by the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) have reportedly killed at least two people and injured hundreds more.

The plant is located about six miles north of the Qayyarah airbase where several hundred U.S. troops are stationed alongside the Iraqi military. U.S. troops were forced to wear protective masks after the facility was set on fire.

FR:Il y a quelques jours, en abandonnant leurs positions, les djihadistes de Daesh ont mis le feu à l'usine de soufre de Mashrag, dégageant un immense nuage blanc toxique qui s'étend sur plusieurs kilomètres à la ronde en Irak, en Turquie et en  Syrie.

 Les épaisses fumées noires exposent des dizaines de milliers de personnes à de sérieuses conséquences sur la santé, et inquiètent de plus en plus les médecins sur place.

ISIS and Water


Small World

One of the first ways in which ISIS signalled a major threat to particularly Iraqi stability was how close they got to controlling key dams in Iraq. In fact, in addition to the more photogenic Yezidis, protecting these dams was a key priority of the beginning stages of Obama’s anti-ISIS intervention. How protected, or threatened, are those water resources today?

Funny conspiracy theories that nationalists believe and spread about an upcoming war between Greece and Turkey and Turkey as the ” Antichrist nation”


Back in 2004,Mr Joel Richardson in my book “The Islamic Antichrist,”  made the following prediction:

While presently, there is not any pressing reason to see Turkey as the leader of an imminent world empire, this is nevertheless what Ezekiel prophesied. … Today the Islamic world is awaiting the restoration of that caliphate. The Bible teaches that someday soon the Turkish Empire will be revived.” 

On greeknation.blogspot.com this was resumed into :Turkey’s Neo-Ottomanist Recep Tayyip Erdogan  will lead Turkey  to the expansive actions a new world war, the third world war. This is an imminent threat for Greece.These “prophesies” of the an American  ( so -called fantasy) writer, Joel Richardson, whose books are widely commented in the neighboring country, Turkey,are causing a lot of debate and concern for the country’s future. (Really? On Hurriyet the biggest Turkish online newspaper i couldn’t find anything relevant)Indeed, as mentioned, the crisis in Syria and the general situation in the Middle East which strongly resembles a powder keg, strengthens the view of the key role to be played by Turkey in the explosion of a new world war.

Joel Richardson argues that Antichrist will not come from Europe , as some claim , or any western country , but from the Middle East. Turkey , according to the American evangelist! as the greeknation blog calls him, seeks to return to the Middle East as a dominate power through a new Ottoman Empire and for this reason that should be causing an immediate alarm to “all the other good nations” to counter this threat , which according to Richardson, is a threat of the Antichrist itself represented in Turkey itself.
