U.S. Relies Heavily on Saudi Money
to Support Syrian Rebels

They can’t even keep the story straight from one paragraph to the next. Was it 2013 or 2012, New York Times?

When Mr. Obama signed off on arming the rebels in the spring of 2013, it was partly to try to gain control of the apparent free-for-all in the region. The Qataris and the Saudis had been funneling weapons into Syria for more than a year. The Qataris had even smuggled in shipments of Chinese-made FN-6 shoulder-fired missiles over the border from Turkey.

The Saudi efforts were led by the flamboyant Prince Bandar bin Sultan, at the time the intelligence chief, who directed Saudi spies to buy thousands of AK-47s and millions of rounds of ammunition in Eastern Europe for the Syrian rebels. The C.I.A. helped arrange some of the arms purchases for the Saudis, including a large deal in Croatia in 2012.

Seymour Hersh exposed these criminal deals already. And those with working bullshit detectors have known all along.

NY Times:

“…even some that American officials were concerned had ties to radical groups like Al Qaeda.”

Really? You’re kidding! You mean after Rep. Kucinich and many were shocked in 2011 that Nato and the USAF were becoming “Al Qaeda’s Air Force” against Qadaffi in Libya?

NY Times:

” “If this is purely a conversation about counterterrorism cooperation, and if the Saudis are a big part of the problem in creating terrorism in the first place, then how persuasive of an argument is it?””

One might say: Impeach Obama and his henchmen? For supporting terrorism? For engaging in Crimes Against the Peace? For Treason?

Why ISIS Exists

The foundation-funded “left”

 

Let’s not allow some recent history to slip down the Memory Hole. For some reason Juan Cole is a minor-league academic star on the progressive circuit. Apparently he used to make some sense, prior to Obama’s ascendancy that is.

Then suddenly war became a good thing, and imperialism was absurd, non-existent. Like other academics who service the empire (on their knees?), Cole has become part of the problem.

 

The case of Professor Juan Cole

 

Libya, imperialism and the prostration of the “left” intellectuals:

…Professor Cole is certainly aware of these facts, but prefers to ignore them. However, the de facto alliance between the US and Al Qaeda in the struggle against Gaddafi not only exposes the mendacity of the global “War on Terror.” It also demands a deeper examination of the reasons for the assault on Libya.

Professor Cole is quick to dismiss suggestions that the US-NATO intervention may be inspired by anything less than the purest humanitarian motives. He is especially impatient with the idea that the US and NATO are conspiring to overthrow Gaddafi “not to protect his people from him but to open the way for US, British and French dominance of Libya. This argument is bizarre.”

…But even though Professor Cole has changed his mind, his writings in 2006 are an effective refutation of his present pro-war position…

 

Juan Cole cheerleaded for Obama’s bombing of Libya in support of Libyan Al Qaeda forces. This destabilization directly led to the Syria fiasco, as Libya’s captured arsenals were covertly shipped to Turkey and then Syrian rebels on the ground by the US CIA and partners. This is cited extensively in my own piece:

Why ISIS Exists: The Double Game

Juan Cole is an academic propagandist.

Stop listening to his limited hangouts and war propaganda.

Veterans Day Is Not for Veterans

Following the Korean War, the U.S. government changed Armistice Day, still known as Remembrance Day in some countries, into Veterans Day, and it morphed from a day to encourage the end of war into a day to glorify war participation. “It was originally a day to celebrate peace,” said Ketwig. “That doesn’t exist anymore. The militarization of America is why I’m angry and bitter.”

Okay, little dick blowhard imbeciles…

This is why you don’t start a war with Russia. Why don’t you check yourself before you wreck the whole fucking planet?
