People ask where did this group IS come from? When did they spring up? Well for now i can’t exactly point to when or where exactly but what i do know IS have grown from the rubble of past invasions occupations and continued support of proxy groups in the region. From the supporting of Mujahid groups in the 80’s by the who were fighting against a Soviet occupation of the country, to the backing of so called rebels in Libya who fought against the government at the time.
The continued injection of weapons and support of these groups has evolved to the point in which we find ourselves now, with the likes of IS and Al Qieda affiliated groups coming out on top as the biggest opposition groups in the region, who in recent times have also reportedly joined forces against the anti IS coalition.
The strikes have effectively amalgamated these groups. The support of proxies in the middle east has gotten to a point where the monster has become uncontrollable, but not useless! The US back in 2013 were preparing for imminent strikes on Syria after it was alleged that the Syrian regime had used Nuclear weapons on the 21st of August 2013, but as we now know this could not have been further from the truth and was clearly being pushed for a pretext to oust the leadership in Damascus.
Propaganda was on overdrive and very nearly pushed us into war, the BBC one of the main perpetrators of this propaganda was caught in the act editing and staging videos that they say was evidence of use of chemical weapons by the regime. See our article ‘Media wars, deceptions and lies’ Fast forward a year and a half and we have a new pretext that of which being the very same extremist groups the US and allies helped equip and fund for years, we will explain how we have come to this conclusion that the US and allies were indeed behind the creation of IS in a second. Just today 03/10/2014 Joe Biden admitted the U.S allies were the biggest problem in Syria supporting the extremist groups but he stopped short of admitting the U.S. also had a big hand to play in the rise of the extremist groups.
For me the most visible signs of this support and funding came when Libya became just another flash point on the world stage, from the outset we had calls echoing from the same camps that called for the unjust invasion of Iraq, calls to strike to support to fund and to arm groups which would fight ‘Dictator Gaddafi’, and so they did, MI6 and the CIA were training and gun running from the outset, all in preparation for regime change.
The covert and overt support for such groups along with air strikes by NATO forces give the ‘Rebels’ the upper hand, the ‘rebels’ hoped their advance would spark an uprising in the capital, but the actual number of citizens who chose to join premature democratic celebrations on Green Square was considerably moderate in comparison with the thousands who preferred to stand by the country’s leader in the governmental district of Bab al-Aziziya armed with the handguns distributed among the locals earlier.
Without a doubt the intelligence services of certain countries including Israels Mossad had a major hand in the rise of these groups, orchestrating and co-ordinating attacks which led to the subsequent fall of the Libyan Regime.
The US and its allies could not be seen as waging a ground war in Libya so Qatar and UAE were only more than willing to help out, the very same establishments that are now supporting extremist groups inside Syria against the Syrian Regime.
The fall of the Libyan regime created a platform in which extremist groups like IS and Al Qieda could launch attacks as well as re group and re organize, this is exactly what happened leading up to the ‘Revolution’ inside Syria, which was shown only to have been supported by a small amount of people in the country.
But at the beginning just like in Libya the mass media here in the West sold it to the public as a popular uprising, but as we said from the start this was just another engineered plot for regime change in Syria. In fact the only real support came and still comes from outside players.
At the time U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates and U.S. military officer, Admiral Mike Mullen acknowledged there was only limited U.S. intelligence on the rebels who might eventually take control of the oil-producing country.
These admissions that they knew very little about who they were actually funding and supporting just shows us exactly how unsure the establishments were when it came to arming and training groups to fight in these countries.
These grievances have been aired before by many other officials across the board but of course their voices are drowned out by the usual War Hawks with help of the Propaganda machines working over time.
Over the last few years accounts from fighters themselves have been documented that they had personally been trained by U.S. military advisers in Jordan and elsewhere within the region, the numbers of which are debated.
Move forward a year or 2 and the so called revolution in Syria starts to take off as more and more outside players joined the fight, fighters from all over the world, groups who had once fought against the Libyan regime were now fighting against the Syrian regime, weaponry and equipment used in the Libya conflict had been brought in to Syria and so began a new flash point which would set the stage for what we are now seeing with the rise of the likes of IS.
As veteran fighters inside Libya began to move towards Syria plans were underway to arm and train even more fighters in Syria to face the Assad regime, time and time again Russia and China vetoed resolutions that sought to arm rebel opposition sighting that some of these very same groups were involved in terror activity’s in Syria. Neither Washington nor the Arab League, which commissioned an Observer Mission to Syria in the first place, have accepted the interim report presented by the AL Mission.
Why? Because the Mission –integrated by independent observers from Arab League countries- provides a balanced and objective assessment of what is happening on the ground inside Syria. It does not serve as a mouthpiece for Washington and the governments of Arab states.
It points to the existence of an “Armed Entity”; it acknowledges that “armed opposition groups” including the Syria Free Army are involved in criminal and terrorist acts. “In some zones, this armed entity reacted by attacking Syrian security forces and citizens, causing the Government to respond with further violence. In the end, innocent citizens pay the price for those actions with life and limb. “In Homs, Idlib and Hama, the Observer Mission witnessed acts of violence being committed against Government forces and civilians that resulted in several deaths and injuries.
Examples of those acts include the bombing of a civilian bus, killing eight persons and injuring others, including women and children, and the bombing of a train carrying diesel oil. In another incident in Homs, a police bus was blown up, killing two police officers. A fuel pipeline and some small bridges were also bombed. ” “Such incidents include the bombing of buildings, trains carrying fuel, vehicles carrying diesel oil and explosions targeting the police, members of the media and fuel pipelines.
Some of those attacks have been carried out by the Free Syrian Army and some by other armed opposition groups.” When Obama and Co mention supporting ‘Moderate’ fighters they are inadvertently arming such groups as IS, Biden himself said there was no middle ground when it came to these fighters, along with the continued propaganda war being waged by IS and the MSM it is a cocktail for disaster, or is it? Well if your ultimate outcome was regime change in the first place then it does not look so illogical but the fact the MSM aren’t reporting it as such does not mean it is not so… just watch as targets move from IS to the SAA and the regime. “NATO is already clandestinely engaged in the Syrian conflict, with Turkey taking the lead as U.S. proxy.
Ankara’s foreign minister, Ahmet Davitoglu, has openly admitted that his country is prepared to invade as soon as there is agreement among the Western allies to do so. The intervention would be based on humanitarian principles, to defend the civilian population based on the “responsibility to protect” doctrine that was invoked to justify Libya. Turkish sources suggest that intervention would start with creation of a buffer zone along the Turkish-Syrian border and then be expanded. Aleppo, Syria’s largest and most cosmopolitan city, would be the crown jewel targeted by liberation forces. I will refer back to the leaked call between Foreign Minister Ahmet Davudoğlu Head of Turkish Intelligence MIT Hakan Fidan Undersecretary of Foreign Ministry Feridun Sinirlioğlu General Yaşar Güler, this call shines a light on the murky behind the scenes preparations and intentions for an invasion of Syria and ultimately regime change.
Now you see that the rise to prominence of these groups has been down to direct interference and incitement from Western and Arab states, with the back up of NATO another long arm of the war machine. It may be confusing so I’ll put it like this, NATO/US/Israel/Saudi and ISIL are indeed 2 sides of the same coin. Evidence is building by the day proving all what we have been saying to be true. Stop supporting terror in the Middle East! End the Wars!
