I remember discussing this absurdity with my wife a couple of years ago. They were helping the Syrian Jihadis, who had massacred thousands already. They are the US, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey and the rest of the NATO clowns. Probably Israel as well, but that might be trickier.
So they helped radical Jihadi terrorists inside Syria for three years.
The obvious endgame would be–to get what they really want–use the Jihadis they had helped as the cassus belli. Now they had to go fight the terrorism they created!
I doubted that could fly. It doesn’t pass the laugh test. It doesn’t align with the paradigms and myths even. It’s so flagrantly obvious, so ridiculous on its face, but here we are today. ISIS terrorists are sweeping across Asia, and now “we” can go bomb them, and ANYONE ELSE NEARBY “WE” DON’T LIKE.
As in the 1980 Afghan/Soviet Jihad, the US creates the monster, with a lot of money and a lot of help from its “friends.” Then it turns around, and screams: there are terrorists in the world!
Oh really? You mean the ones you were arming, training, funding and transporting around the region? Oh yeah, them.
This sad formula assumes our population are drooling imbeciles.
Are they wrong?
ISIS was helped by US “partners,” and the US has aided their cause in Syria for years in the UN and with covert supplies, including weapons, and a training program in Jordan. The treasonous US puppet masters assume their Jihadi lieges are easily vanquished should the US decide to wage war on them. The Jihadis assume the US is so corrupt and stupid that it is helping the people who want to kill them.
This goes beyond “policy” a banal word that masks reality. It is material support for terrorism. It is potentially treason. It is official US policy to help radical Jihadist “terrorists” in a bunch of nations today. Isn’t that supposed to be a problem?
Nafeez Ahmed interview.
The Powers Behind The Islamic State
Investigative journalist Nafeez Ahmed gives specific examples of how Saudi, Qatari, and American interests have supported the group formerly known as ISIS, and what the global community can do now to rein them in - August 24, 14
Nafeez also appeared on Breaking the Set with a new study of Pentagon surveillance of social media:
The world’s #1 sponsor of terrorism: Bandar bin Sultan, Condi Rice George Bush, smoochies with Saudi king Abdullah.
Let’s be clear: Al Qaeda, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, Boko Haram, the Shabab and others are all violent Sunni Salafi groupings. For five decades, Saudi Arabia has been the official sponsor of Sunni Salafism across the globe. Most Sunni Muslims around the world, approximately 90 percent of the Muslim population, are not Salafis. Salafism is seen as too rigid, too literalist, too detached from mainstream Islam. While Shiite and other denominations account for 10 percent of the total, Salafi adherents and other fundamentalists represent 3 percent of the world’s Muslims.
So even the NY Times can’t believe the fucked up FUBAR schizoid character of US foreign policy today. It’s taken them long enough. I guess ISIS taking over central Asia is foreboding enough to stop chuckling about keeping the US public so ignorant and stupid?
They bombed the World Trade Center for fuck’s sake!
With the US intelligence (sic) blessing and aid.
It is the age of fucking TREASON.
Wake the fuck up fucktards.
“Saudi Arabia has created a Frankenstein’s monster over which it is rapidly losing control. The same is true of its allies such as Turkey which has been a vital back-base for Isis and Jabhat al-Nusra by keeping the 510-mile-long Turkish-Syrian border open. As Kurdish-held border crossings fall to Isis, Turkey will find it has a new neighbour of extraordinary violence, and one deeply ungrateful for past favours from the Turkish intelligence service.”
Article doesn’t provide much new reporting. It does, however, nicely tie Hillary Clinton, then Secretary of State, to Treason, covering up Saudi state support for Al Qaeda:
“Saudi sympathy for anti-Shia “militancy” is identified in leaked US official documents. The then US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton wrote in December 2009 in a cable released by Wikileaks that “Saudi Arabia remains a critical financial support base for al-Qa’ida, the Taliban, LeT [Lashkar-e-Taiba in Pakistan] and other terrorist groups.” She said that, in so far as Saudi Arabia did act against al-Qa’ida, it was as a domestic threat and not because of its activities abroad. This policy may now be changing with the dismissal of Prince Bandar as head of intelligence this year. But the change is very recent, still ambivalent and may be too late: it was only last week that a Saudi prince said he would no longer fund a satellite television station notorious for its anti-Shia bias based in Egypt.”
Prince Bandar is a central figure in this ISIS movement to wage a war of annihilation against the Shia and to create a caliphate across Asia. The US sees this as wonderful, as the main Shia stronghold is, of course, Iran.
Turkey’s role has been different but no less significant than Saudi Arabia’s in aiding Isis and other jihadi groups. Its most important action has been to keep open its 510-mile border with Syria. This gave Isis, al-Nusra and other opposition groups a safe rear base from which to bring in men and weapons. The border crossing points have been the most contested places during the rebels’ ‘civil war within the civil war’. Most foreign jihadis have crossed Turkey on their way to Syria and Iraq. Precise figures are difficult to come by, but Morocco’s Interior Ministry said recently that 1122 Moroccan jihadists have entered Syria, including nine hundred who went in 2013, two hundred of whom were killed. Iraqi security suspects that Turkish military intelligence may have been heavily involved in aiding Isis when it was reconstituting itself in 2011. Reports from the Turkish border say Isis is no longer welcome, but with weapons taken from the Iraqi army and the seizure of Syrian oil and gasfields, it no longer needs so much outside help.
Of course I would disagree with the title of this article, by Patrick Cockburn:
Ultimate disaster for the US? Bullshit. This has been their outright strategy since 2006:
It’s a disaster for the little people who live there, not for the US or Britain who were kicked out of Iraq by the Iran-friendly Maliki regime. Now they are destroying Maliki, and the “Caliphate” seeks to destroy Iran and Shia generally. This sort of hyperbolic gibberish, from Patrick Cockburn, makes me doubt his sincerity sometimes.
US proxy wars, financed and armed by extremist Persian Gulf regimes and “friends” have taken Iraq from the 20th century back to the 8th century. Heckuva job, Barry and Shrub.
If anyone thinks the ghouls in Washington DC give a slightest fuck about the lives of any foreign civilians, anywhere, ever, they are completely deluded.
ISIS was aided and abetted by US allies — for years — in order to attack Syria. Now they are aided and abetted.
Some reporters are calling it a hoax, but a UN spokesperson says there are “current reports.”
