SERENA SHIM: THE LIFE AND UNEXPLAINED DEATH OF A SYRIA WAR REPORTER

 

She had recently reported for the Iranian-backed Press TV about Turkey’s role in smuggling IS fighters into Syria on World Food Programme trucks. In her final live broadcast, she described how agents from the Turkish National Intelligence Organization (MIT) had been asking questions about her movements while she was covering the siege of Kobani by IS militants.

The intelligence agency had labeled her a “spy,” she said, and pressed locals to “give them a phone call” if they saw her.

That century-long “War on Terror” (sic) can’t go on if you defeat the terrorists. Sometimes you have to give them a little boost. American Air Force monitored a long convoy of ISIS fighters and their families escaping from their “Caliphate” capital, and did nothing about it.

More evidence we’re living a giant fraud.

Lafarge paid 13 million euros to armed groups to keep operating in Syria: rights group

PARIS (Reuters) – French cement group Lafarge paid close to 13 million euros ($15.2 million) to armed groups including Islamic State militants to keep operating in Syria from 2011-2015, human rights lawyers said on Tuesday.

Russian airstrike on ISIS facility

by David Pear

Before answering that question. What is the ISIS? Can the public overcome its chronic amnesia and think back to the sudden appearance of ISIS dressed in brand new black uniforms, gleaming white NIKE’s and driving Toyota trunks? They seemed to appear out of nowhere in 2014. ISIS looked as if it were a mirage when it appeared, or more likely a CIA staged scene from Hollywood.

No sooner had ISIS appeared than it went on a head chopping binge that repulsed and frightened the US public. Washington officials, including Secretary of State John Kerry, rang the alarm that this hoard of Islamic crazies wanted to invade the US and “kill us all”. A well-compliant mainstream media swallowed Washington’s script and regurgitated it to frighten the US public. The public gave its silent consent for more war, one that was really aimed at Bashar al-Assad.

The next question is: who created ISIS?

ISIS “can trace its roots back to the late Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, a Jordanian. In 2004, a year after the US-led invasion of Iraq, Zarqawi pledged allegiance to Osama Bin Laden and formed al-Qaeda in Iraq” [ BBC News December 2, 2016 ]. Al-Qaeda in Iraq did not exist until after the US invasion by the Bush-Cheney administration.

The US invasion of Iraq was based on pure unadulterated lies that Saddam Hussein supported al-Qaeda, was involved in the September 11, 2001 attacks on the US, and had weapons of mass destruction. Al-Qaeda in Iraq was predictable blowback, resistance against the illegal US invasion. Bush, who admitted that he created his own reality, had hallucinations of a grateful Iraqi people, who had just been bombed back to the Stone Age with Shock and Awe, throwing kisses and flowers at the US expeditionary force as liberators.

Then came the failed Surge of 2007 when the US allied with Sunnis to defeat the remnants of the Iraqi Ba’ath Party, which was an Arab Nationalist Party neither Sunni nor Shia. This cynical siding with radical Islam hails back to the British “Great Game” of the early 1900’s. It was the British double-dealing with both Sunnis and Shias to supplant the Ottoman Empire and turn Sunni against Shia in order to divide and conquer Southwest Asia. It is the story of Lawrence of Arabia, Winston Churchill, and World War One.

After World War Two the US opposed Arab anti-colonial nationalism and communism during the Cold War. It was the “Grand Chessboard” strategist Zbigniew Brzezinski who convinced Jimmy Carter in 1979 to back the Islamic radical mujahideen mercenaries and destroy Afghanistan in order to lure the Soviet Union into a Vietnam-type quagmire. Brzezinski was so proud of his success that he would later ask which is more important, “Some stirred-up Moslems” or winning the Cold War. If Brzezinski was so clever he would have learned from the British early 1900’s Southwest Asia super spy Gertrude Bell. As she would later say, the British Empire encouraging and sponsoring of radical Islam backfired into a big failure. But the US does not know history, even its own history of repeated blunders of encouraging and sponsoring radical Islam against Arab anti-colonial nationalism.

Instead, the US enlisted the most radical right-wing fascist regime in the history of the world, the Absolute Monarchy of Saudi Arabia to bankroll Sunnis against Arab nationalism. The Saudis gladly funded US regime change projects against secular Arab states. The US, flush with oil money from the Saudis, went about encouraging, training and paying mercenaries from all over Southwest Asia to overthrow Bashar al-Assad in Syria. Assad did not share the US vision of world leader of capitalist globalization. Instead, Assad was using Syria’s wealth for the benefit of the Syrian people, just as Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi had done before.

This was last year. If you haven’t seen it, then you are in for quite an eye-opener.

Why are US leaders immune from answering why they deliver tons of deadly weapons to terrorists?

 

Not an isolated incident…

Between 3,000 and 5,000 so-called ‘foreign fighters’ – EU citizens trained in Islamic state terror camps – have returned to Europe and pose a “completely new challenge,” according the continent’s top police chief.

 

Europe and America,

Your leaders are depraved criminals. They have created this situation and bear responsibility for the atrocities that will follow.

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.

TURKEY has hosted a terror training camp in Istanbul. Turkey has helped the Jihadists since at least 2012, but probably well before then. Even the vice president of the US, Biden, called out Turkey’s support for terrorism, only to be told to shut up, because the US government, the regime of Obama, the military industrial complex, considers these terrorists “assets.”
