Middle East nations are zero threat to the United States and have no desire to attack it in any way. Rogue, religion-obsessed groups such as Al Qaeda, Al Nusrah Front and Daesh/ISIS/ISIL however, have larger ambitions.
What does the US do?
In 2003 it completely destroys the secular regime in Iraq, a nation where no Al Qaeda terrorists had ever survived previously. Today it is a terrorist Disneyland.
In 2011 the US and NATO target Qadaffi, who had fought against the terrorist groups for decades and was their number one enemy in the region. America bombs Libya’s government forces and empowers the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, now known as ISIS in Libya.
In 2011-2012, the CIA and other covert intelligence services move the weapons captured in Libya over through Turkey and to Syrian extremists. These people are fighting the government, which like the others, was the main opposition to terrorists in the country. These rebels then spring dozens of religion-obsessed, rogue terrorist groups with a multitude of names. Arms and money continue to pour in through Turkey and the neighboring regimes, such as Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
Everyone who matters knows all this. The grossly ignorant American public still believes that the US government opposes terrorism when its actions–not words–betray its true agenda.
Ask your so-called “leaders” why all those nations that give arms and money to ISIS and its partners have no sanctions placed against them? Not one. No sanctions have even been proposed. No one in our government lifts a finger against the people we are told are our “allies.”
Do you believe your “allies” fund, give weapons to, and train Al Qaeda?
Do you have a problem with that idea?
