The US State Department has a keen interest, and involvement, in most if not all of these.

“The conflict in Ukraine – a prelude of World War III, and the Minsk talks – this is the only alternative.”
“This is a prelude to World War III. A lot of people know this. For example, Zaporizhia nuclear power plant just 160 kilometers away from the fighting. You can imagine what a disaster could happen if there will get a shell? We have an alternative to the Minsk talks? We can declare war Moscow to conduct a swift operation? No. Because in this case the cruise missiles will fly tomorrow to Kiev “, – said the diplomat.

“The rule of thumb was that when there was estimated collateral damage of up to 10 civilians, the ISAF commander in Kabul was to decide whether the risk was justifiable,” Der Spiegel quotes an ISAF officer who worked with the lists for years as saying.
“the Afghan narcotics trade has gotten undeniably worse since the U.S.-led invasion,” and the U.S. has “all[ied] with many of the same people who turned the country into the world’s biggest source of heroin.”

“We have not defeated the idea. We do not even understand the idea.”
Dear General Nagata,
Ideas without logistical support: arms, vehicles, heavy artillery, are just debating clubs.
Still no one in Washington will call out SAUDI ARABIA, TURKEY, QATAR ET AL. for sponsoring this terrorist movement. This is a Wahabbi fundamentalist movement, similar and related to their sponsors in the Gulf kingdoms. They exist because they are blowing people up next door, rather than inside Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar, etc.
Even Joe Biden, the vice president of the fucking United States has said:
“My constant cry was that our biggest problem is our allies — our allies in the region were our largest problem in Syria,”
… “What were they doing?” Biden asked rhetorically. “They were so determined to take down Assad and essentially have a proxy Sunni-Shia war, what did they do? They poured hundreds of millions of dollars and tens, thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad — except that the people who were being supplied were al Nusra and al Qaeda and the extremist elements of jihadis coming from other parts of the world.”
Leaked Wikileaks cables from Hillary Clinton say the same sorts of things.
Apparently everyone who is someone knows what’s going on, and yet the US military officers remain embarrassingly clueless and subservient. Your bosses collude with the sponsors of ISIS, every day. They are business partners, and business is good. They like ISIS when it blows up Syrians. They just don’t like it when it gets too big and starts snatching up oil fields.
That is the first thing you need to know to defeat the movement. Ask yourself why they so easily put sanctions on everyone they don’t like, Russia in particular, but no one is even talking about sanctioning Turkey or Saudi Arabia?
Even after the vice president confirms that they are criminally culpable for sponsoring the Islamic State?
Ask the real questions.
