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.

Why ISIS Exists: The Double Game

 

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?

Iraqi military says coalition airstrike hit its forces

 

Incident near Fallujah (where the US killed 6000 people in 2004 and turned it into a free fire zone — is it still considered a free fire zone?):

One officer injured in the strike, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the news media, said 25 soldiers were killed and 37 were wounded. A military medic said he had treated at least 20 injured soldiers.

Have I just personally changed the course of the Syrian war???

On Nov. 3 I wrote:

Mr. Obama,

Oil wells have addresses.

Are you still pretending to fight ISIS, when you could, on any day, and at any time, have simply bombed the Islamic State oil wells and put them out of commission?

Today the NY Times says that Obama’s planes are bombing oil fields now, and this time they really mean it. (So they claim. I remain skeptical.)

U.S. Steps Up Its Attacks on ISIS-Controlled Oil Fields in Syria

Coincidence?

Really?

Or are some glaring frauds too smelly to continue once the public gets a whiff of how ridiculous they are?

NYT:

The goal of the operation over the next several weeks is to cripple eight major oil fields, about two-thirds of the refineries and other oil-production sites controlled by the Islamic State, also called ISIS or ISIL.

“We intend to shut it all down,” Col. Steven H. Warren, a military spokesman in Baghdad, said in an email on Thursday [yesterday].

So it’s taken over a year to get around to allowing the Air Force to degrade the ISIS money supply. Nothing fishy there, right?

PS

Two more glaring issues:

  1. The “next several weeks” tells you how long it would have taken in the first place. What have they been doing all this time?
  2. They are stopping at “two-thirds of the refineries and other oil-production sites controlled by the Islamic State.” Why 2/3? They want to retain an engine to keep it going indefinitely.
PPS.

Stephen Lendman speculates:

Attacking ISIS held Syrian oil fields now appears part of a plan to prevent their use by Damascus if its army regains control. They’ve been protected to provide income for America’s proxy terrorist foot soldiers.

 Washington wants Assad deprived of an important revenue source. If his forces recapture ISIS held oil fields and facilities, they’ll likely find them turned to rubble.

Nouri al Maliki, Iraqi Prime Minister 2006-2014

Iraq’s puppet prez, who is no longer in the government, has come out with critical statements stating the obvious: Washington is full of shit and protecting ISIS.

“It’s unbelievable and unacceptable that more than 60 nations comprising this coalition that have the most modern aircraft and weapons at their disposal have been conducting their campaign in Iraq for 14 months and IS still remains in the country,” he told RT’s Arabic-language sister-channel Rusiya Al-Yaum.

‘US-led coalition disjointed in fighting ISIS as some members have own plans’

Or maybe ISIS is a key instrument for changing the situation in Iraq and the region?”

Mr. Obama,

Oil wells have addresses.

Are you still pretending to fight ISIS, when you could, on any day, and at any time, have simply bombed the Islamic State oil wells and put them out of commission?

The NY Times claimed, in sycophantic fashion, that you are “struggling” on this question. I don’t personally believe that.

Struggling to Starve ISIS of Oil Revenue, U.S. Seeks Assistance From Turkey

“WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is struggling to cut off the millions of dollars in oil revenue that has made the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria one of the wealthiest terror groups in history, but so far has been unable to persuade Turkey, the NATO ally where much of the oil is traded on the black market, to crack down on an extensive sales network.”

The Times never once mentions the oil wells.

This is an oil well:

Now it may be above the pay grade of the media whores at the NY Times to put the two together. But it is certainly not beyond the planning of people in your own Pentagon. No. It’s probably the very first thing they suggested the moment the problem became known. They are quite famous for blowing shit up wherever they go.

So, Mr. Obama, the real question is: WHY ARE YOU PROTECTING THE ISIS OIL WELLS FROM MILITARY ATTACK?

YOU.

THE PRESIDENT.

THE BUCK STOPS … WHERE?

The “neo-con” clique in Washington has always been tied to the state of Israel and acting in concert with Israeli strategy for the region.

So if you wonder why the Democrats are also on board this insane plan, here is your answer.

US Caught Faking It in Syria

Oded Yinon, who had formerly worked at the Israeli Foreign Ministry, published an article in which he outlined the strategic approach his country needed to take in the coming years.

What follows are some excerpts from Israel Shahak’s English translation of that text:

“Lebanon’s total dissolution into five provinces serves as a precedent for the entire Arab world including Egypt, Syria, Iraq and the Arabian Peninsula and is already following that track. The dissolution of Syria and Iraq later on into ethnically or religiously unique areas such as in Lebanon, is Israel’s primary target on the Eastern front in the long run, while the dissolution of the military power of those states serves as the primary short term target. Syria will fall apart, in accordance with its ethnic and religious structure, into several states such as in present day Lebanon….

Iraq’s … dissolution is even more important for us than that of Syria…

Yinon’s vision reappeared in the now infamous“Clean Break” document from 1996, authored by a consortium of US and Israeli “strategic thinkers” that included Richard Perle, Douglas Feith and David and Meyrav Wurmser, which was meant to serve as a foreign policy blueprint for the first administration  of Benjamin Netanyahu.”
