The Istanbul Nightclub Massacre.

The story is that a lone gunman entered the Reina nightclub in the upscale Ortaköy neighbourhood of Istanbul at around 1.45am on January the 1st and murdered at least 39, wounding a further 69 of the nightclub patrons before changing from the black attire he was wearing when he arrived into an all white outfit and evading all the Turkish security forces making a clean escape from the scene.

Among the victims were at least 15 foreigners from mainly Western and Middle Eastern nations.

There is video of the beginning of the event where a man can be seen to open fire randomly on a number of targets in the street before making his way into the club. The man is dressed in black and wielding an AK47 rifle.

The gunshots cause many sparks to fly from the objects they strike in a manner that is eerily reminiscent of the Dallas “spark hits” episode, although less conclusive because in that case the spark hits were accompanied by a police officer doing a really bad job of pretending to have been shot. On the other hand the people on the street in Istanbul  appear to be reacting in a genuine way to the attack.

ISIS Claim responsibility?

The identity of the gunman is not known and although someone purporting to represent ISIS has claimed responsibility, the claim of responsibility made reference to a gun and grenade attack but none of the survivors make any mention of any explosives of any kind and that combined with the fact that anyone can claim to be ISIS and claim responsibility for anything via social media, this cannot be accepted at face value.

After the November 13th Black Friday “attacks” in Paris a similarly inaccurate claim of responsibility was made, in that case the ISIS letter referred to attacks in parts of Paris where no attack took place.

It seems quite amazing that someone could perpetrate a massacre on that scale in the middle of a massive city with a reported 17,000 police on the streets and make a clean getaway by changing into different clothes.

The whole story sounds unbelievable and when you watch the interviews with some of the survivors and supposed victims it becomes very hard to sustain belief in the authenticity of this event.

Jacob Raak is the American CEO of a company named TECH Manufacturing, Corp. a seemingly small specialist tech firm based in Pennsylvania. In the following video Jacob Raak gives an amazing performance that must be seen to be believed.

The gunman seen entering the club on CCTV is wielding an AK47 assault rifle, the diameter of the rounds is 7.62 millimeters by 39, the bullet leaves the weapon at a speed of 715 metres a second so it is more than a little odd to see Jacob Raak with a thin ribbon of material around his thigh covering what could only be a minuscule wound and no sign of any blood whatsoever.

Presumably the story will be fixed in the coming days we will be told that Jacob Raak was hit by a ricochet rather than an actual bullet or something like that but when Jacob Raak left hospital on the way to the airport to fly home, only one day after the event, there was no sign at all that he had been shot at all, it was clear that his leg bore no bandages or other signs of medical treatment or injury.

Jacob Raak leaves hospital and his thin, skin tight pants make it clear that there are no bandages on his right leg less than two days after being shot by an assault rifle.

It was interesting to note that in the story they ran about Jacob Raak the Mail Online cropped out all imagery of the “wound” and the slim ” bandage” – an approach that is completely contrary to the base and exploitative approach the Mail Online routinely takes.

The Jacob Raak story got even better in the Mail Online with a throwback to the Paris attack of November 2015, the divine intervention of the mobile phone again saving the life of the “terror victim”.

Other Witnesses and Survivors.

Other eyewitnesses are also deeply unconvincing in the general tenor of their comments.

This al Jazeera video features a female witness Sinem Uyanik who in a less obvious way is as unconvincing as Mr.Raak in her description of events.

“Before I could understand what was happening, my husband fell on top of me,” said Sinem Uyanik, who follows inexplicably with “I had to lift several bodies from on top of me before I could get out,” (Source) Her husband was only lightly wounded so she is not referring to him. The story does not make sense.

Fake Terror is a proven fact in the Middle East.

Almost all of the violence and terror in the Middle East is authentic but we know for a fact that some events are staged. Several months ago a video of a clearly staged and fake bombing in Iraq was released, a real explosion takes place in an empty street and after the blast fake victims congregate for the cameras and play their role.

Something Strange Happened After a “Car Bombing”

This event was reported as a real attack around the world but it was not.

The presence of fake victims around an event strongly implies that the event was not authentic because if there were real victims from a real tragedy there would be no need for them.

So while, given the scale of the attack, the wide variety of victims nationalities and the near universal credulity with which the story was greeted make it seem ludicrous at face value to suggest this attack was a work of fiction, a non-event, the weight of currently available evidence points overwhelmingly in that direction.

In many ways it scarcely matters, the more important question is who is behind these events? Who benefits and what are they hoping to achieve?

The militant groups against whom these crimes are attributed gain absolutely nothing. They make their destruction   imperative.

Turkey and it’s leader have recently crossed the West, their decision to participate in a Syrian peace process that included Russia and Iran and excluded the US will be seen as an unfriendly act in the US and give the US a motive to destabilise Turkey.

But given that the Istanbul police are handling this case it is hard to imagine any outsiders exerting sufficient influence over the police to pull this event off. It is possible but seems highly unlikely.

On the other hand the high number of foreign victims also seemingly makes it impossible for this deception to have been concocted locally.

Many credible analysts stated that the slaying of the Russian Ambassador in Ankara was a fraud, my understanding is that the assassination was a staged event but the killing of Andrei Karlov was real and perhaps this event will ultimately also turn out to have been authentic and there are signs of authenticity such as what seems to be a corpse laying in the Istanbul street and the start of the attack also appears somewhat authentic, possible spark hits aside.

Conclusion.

However the tentative conclusion remains that this event was fiction and the authors were most likely elements within the Turkish state.

The broader implication of this hypothesis is that these synthetic events are simply the next level news management technique adopted by governments across the world in order to exert psychological control over the populace, promote heightened security measures and give governments almost unlimited power whilst the people the leadership wants to be perceived as enemies are seen that way by a terrified, compliant population without having to deal with grieving families demanding the truth and causing years of “trouble” for the perpetrators in the aftermath.

Heavy casualties After Multiple Blasts Strike Istanbul Airport.

At least 36 people are dead and more than 100 injured following a series of explosions at Istanbul’s Ataturk airport.

The specific details of the attack remain unclear but it is claimed that at least two and possibly as many as four people wearing explosive vests or belts entered the International terminal and detonated their explosives.

One eyewitness stated that the suicide bombers tried to shoot their way past the airport security before detonating their devices.

“We came right to international departures and saw the man randomly shooting. He was just firing at anyone coming in front of him. He was wearing all black. His face was not masked. I was 50 metres away from him,” said Paul Roos, 77, a South African tourist on his way back to Cape Town with his wife.”

“We ducked behind a counter but I stood up and watched him. Two explosions went off shortly after one another. By that time he had stopped shooting,” Roos said.

“He turned around and started coming towards us. He was holding his gun inside his jacket. He looked around anxiously to see if anyone was going to stop him and then went down the escalator … We heard some more gunfire and then another explosion, and then it was over.” (Source)

A Crowded Roster of Enemies.

Turkey has been targeted numerous times over the past twelve months by a variety of groups including those purporting to represent Kurdish separatists and the Islamic State group. So far this year Istanbul has been targeted by two major bomb attacks with ISIS claiming the January attack on the Sultanahmet tourist district that killed largely German tourists and the jihadists also being blamed for the March attack that left at least 5 dead after a bomber blew himself up in an Istanbul street.

There has not been any claim of responsibility for the latest attack.but it seems inevitable that ISIS will be blamed and given that this was a highly effective attack on the Turkish economy in the middle of the Northern Hemisphere tourist season and the fact that the group have been largely abandoned by their Turkish sponsors in recent times, they or a like-minded group were probably responsible.

The Turkish state has also been involved in a small-scale war against Kurdish separatists since  Turkey renewed military operations against Kurdish groups folloewing the Suruc attack of July 2015 upon Kurdish youth activists.

The attack comes as the Turkish government have been working to repair recently damaged ties with Russia. Turkey’s economy has experienced a more than 80% reduction in Russian tourists following Turkey’s premeditated attack on A Russian warplane last November. The recent apology to Russia was intended to remedy this situation so the attack could not have come at a worse time for the Turkish government.

The footage immediately available of this event with the multiple ambulances, dead bodies and CCTV footage stands in stark contrast to what we have seen after the recent attack in Orlando and the Brussels airport attack.

Turkish Artillery Attacking Syrian Kurds as Massive Escalation Threatened.

“Cessation of hostilities” mirage is dissolving.

Several Turkish politicians including Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu have been alluding to a Turkish escalation into Syria in recent days. This escalation appears to be beginning and in recent hours Turkish artillery shells have been falling on the positions of the Kurdish YPG group in the vicinity of the Menagh Airbase. There are also reports of increased activity by Turkish warplanes in the border region.

The Menagh Airbase was captured by Kurdish fighters earlier this week with the overt support of both Russia and the United States. US and other Western forces are embedded within the YPG units and there were Russian airstrikes and ammunition drops in support of the offensive to seize the airbase.

The Airbase was seized from the al Nusra front, it had been in the hands of rebels since it was seized by a coalition that included ISIS and the Free Syrian Army in August 2013. The seizure was spearheaded by ISIS suicide car/truck bomb attacks and yet in the pro-opposition media the victory was attributed to the Free Syrian Army.

Moderate Rebels.

According to the Western media and even the NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, instead of targeting jihadist extremist fighters, the Russian Airstrikes have been targeting “moderate rebels” in Syria belonging to groups such as the Free Syrian Army.

“Russia has mainly targeted opposition groups and not ISIL (ISIS). Airstrikes of Russian planes against different opposition groups in Syria have actually undermined the efforts to reach a negotiated, peaceful solution,” (Source)

Stoltenburg has a problem with Russian bombing of al Qaeda fighters, which seems rather odd.

Yet the Free Syrian Army have been an on/off ally of ISIS for several years now in Aleppo so who on earth are they even talking about?

According to the Munich “Cessation of Hostilities” the al Nusra Front (al Qaeda in Syria) and ISIS/Daesh and their allies are still valid targets.

In the real world it was long ago stated by the US Vice President that there are no moderate militant factions in Syria of any note.

All of the insurgent groups fighting in Syria of any consequence are now or have been the allies of one or both ISIS and al Nusra so they are all fair game. If Turkey and Saudi Arabia enter Syria they will risk devastating consequences beyond the imagination of their deluded leadership who appear intent on starting a major war in order to pursue the dead dream of regime change in Syria. If this leads to major war, history will condemn these criminals until the end of time.

False Flag a strong possibility.

Given the recent history of false flag terror attacks the Turkish leadership have apparently conducted in Suruc and Ankara and their alleged intimate connection with the al Ghouta false flag chemical attack of August 2013 in pursuit of their geopolitical goals. It would be unsurprising to see a false flag massacre conducted against the refugee population in the border region in the coming days in order to justify the Turkish escalation and invasion of Syria. I am not predicting this will happen, but if it does happen it would be true to form and no-one should believe for a second that the Russians would attack a refugee camp. If anything bad happens to those people in the border region it should be attributed to the Turks and the Saudis until conclusively proven otherwise.

The Saudis did bobm a refugee camp in the early days of the Yemen attack, on March 30th, 2015 a refugee camp was struck by a series of air strikes that left dozens of civilians dead.
None of the people concerned for the fate of the people in Aleppo had a word to say about that criminal massacre however, that is not how it works. Our “side” make honest errors versus the “other side” conduct deliberate atrocities.
