I think the Internet's been a tremendous tool in terms of breaking down the power structure of information and entertainment, particularly at a time when so much information and entertainment were in the hands of so few people, with multinationals owning everything.

First item: I have an article out on the whole Ralston-Lockheed Martin-ATC mess, which can be read over at KurdishInfo.
Thanks are in order, first of all to the hevals at KurdishInfo for being gracious enough to publish the article. Gelek sipas, hevalên min. Also, gelek sipas to the heval who forwarded the article to KurdishInfo; I knew you would know what best to do.
Gelek sipas to a heval in the UK, who's been in the fight for a very long time and knows which ropes to pull and which buttons to push over there. As a result of the right combination of rope-pulling, button-pushing, begging, crying, stamping feet . . . in short, for knowing how to be a nuisance, the article will be published in a UK newspaper.
Gelek sipas to all those friends who continue to inspire me to battle, to Rastî readers who also inspire me, and to the magnificent Kurdish people, for whom Rastî exists.
Second item: Many thanks to Lukery at Wot Is It Good 4 for a very nice recognition on this subject. Lukery has been following the deep shit of the Deep State for some time, so if there is any backgrounder information that anyone needs, that's the place to go.
Lukery has started a blog to promote the Kill the Messenger documentary, which also contains a lot of good information. There's something there that goes into the FBI counterintelligence investigations on the ATC and ATAA (Assembly of Turkish-American Associations). It gets into nuclear materials procurement, and if that doesn't scare you, then you're not paying attention.
Let's be honest here. Haven't we all suspected these things in the past? Don't we all know that someone, somewhere, is maintaining a low-intensity conflict against the Kurdish people for their own purposes? The Turkish state has thrived off of this pattern of behavior from the beginning, so that the Pashas can stay in power, but the Pashas don't do it alone. They have outside help, as we see in this example of the Lockheed Martin-Joseph Ralston conflict of interest--and that is only one example.
In this round, however, they will not be able to silence us. They will not be able to keep the information from getting out of Turkish-occupied Kurdistan as a result of two things that weren't easily accessible in the 1990's--cell phones and the Internet. They will never be able to keep up with the flow of information from these two means of communication and dispersal of information. Never. Because there will always be someone, somewhere, who will find new ways around any electronic wall of silence they want to build.
This time around, they are going to lose in a big way, hevals . . . as long as we make it happen.
