In my past articles i outlined how and why IS(Islamic State) had risen to such prominence in such a short period of time with the backing of Western and Gulf powers but many still believe that the US and allies are fighting a righteous battle defeat this evil group of mad men but this could not be further from the truth.
With the huge propaganda machines in overdrive the narrative that the West is in a battle against the evil ISIS is perpetually pushed on the people but what is not said or explained is the fact that those same establishments who say they are in a battle against ISIS they in fact were the ones who made ISIS what they are today.
In my past articles on this subject i went as far back as the occupation of Afghanistan by Russia and the funding and support of the Mujahadeen by the US to counter Russian power in the country as one of the reasons for the rise of extremist groups in the region this and the continued wars, invasions and occupations since then.
The continued support and funding of so called ‘moderate’ & not so ‘moderate groups in the Middle East by Western powers as well as certain Gulf states has time and time again proved to be a disaster backfiring in the Wests face as we are now seeing in such places like Libya, Iraq and in Syria.
Still to this day those same establishments have not learned from their past mistakes maybe out of sheer ignorance or they are seeking to foment perpetual conflict in the region? i believe the latter to be the case.
In an interview to Russian media President Bashar Al-Assad said he believes that the coalition of up to 60 countries in the fight against IS are not serious he said:
“Some of its members would prefer to retain the terrorist force to blackmail different countries”
I posed a question in past articles ‘Was IS a pre text for war inside Syria?’ since then we have seen the anti ISIS coalition launch many airstrikes but nothing in comparison to what is needed to destroy IS inside of Syria.
Obviously the situation in Libya was different to the situation we are now seeing with IS in both Syria and Iraq but the capability to deal a crushing blow is there if there was a will to deal that blow in the first place.
In the recent interview with President Assad he outlined the lack of airstrikes by the anti ISIS coalition, he said:
“This doesn’t make sense. This shows the lack of seriousness,” said Syria’s president. “They don’t want to get rid of ISIS completely.”
“There is no serious effort to fight terrorism, and what is being achieved by the Syrian forces on the ground equals in one day what is being achieved by these states in weeks,” Assad said. “An anti-terrorist coalition cannot consist of countries which are themselves supporters of terrorism.”
The Syrian President explained that he believed there are two political camps in Washington you have the peace leaning camp and then you have the second camp which fully supports open wars, occupations and military interventions. Throughout the globe we have seen this as well as sending weapons to Ukraine stoking the conflict there, Assad said:
“There is a connection between the Syrian crisis and what is happening in Ukraine. Firstly, because both countries are important for Russia. Secondly, because there is a goal in both cases to weaken Russia and create puppet states,”
A recent announcement by Defense Secretary Michael Fallon that the British military will train ‘moderate’ fighters to fight against IS comes as no surprise to us this has been the norm for years in the region funding and support proxy groups to fight proxy wars.
Fallon insists that the Islamic State can only be defeated by local forces i.e the FSA but as we already know the FSA is largely made up of foreign fighters.
Surely the best option for the West to combat the Islamic State would be to co-ordinate with the Syrian military who have been fighting IS for years now?
The fact that the West is unwilling to co-ordinate with the Syrian military or fail to launch a proper air campaign against IS proves they have more to gain from conflict than they have in solving it.
Again evidence continues to mount proving Western and Gulf states have been involved in supporting so called ‘moderates’ and out right extremists from military training to funding to the arming of said groups. In fact we are now at a stage were the establishments are openly supporting the very same groups of people who helped bolster the ranks of the Islamic State in Syria.
Fingerprints of intelligence agencies are all over the conflicts we have seen take place in Syria,Libya and elsewhere. From the gun running out of the Benghazi embassy to the arming and training of thousands of fighters in secret training camps in Jordan, Turkey and Saudi Arabia to launch campaigns to topple democratically elected President of Syria President Assad.
Many prominent figures are also on record as saying that certain intelligence agencies have been behind the situations taking place in the region. The President of Sudan on the 17th of February give an interview to Euronews were he stated that CIA & Mossad were behind such groups as ISIS, Boko-Haram and Al quieda.
His remarks came shortly after the leader of Hezbollah Sayyed Nasrallah also stated that the CIA and Mossad were behind these groups fomenting conflict in the region to meet their own ends.
It is nothing new prominent figures saying such things in fact people have been pointing this out for years about the likes of Al quieda:
At the beginning of the ‘Revolution’ inside Syria the usual Mainstream media outlets shifted up a gear totally over blowing the situation that was taking place at that begining of the Syrian ‘Revolution’ .
Just like in Libya the narrative of evil dictators slaughtering their own civilian’s was pushed on us and that the ‘Revolutions’ were ‘Revolutions’ of the people, this for the most part was proved to be untrue as many outside players had involvement in them.
Arab League Observers released a report on the situation in Syria providing evidence of CIA, MI6, and Mossad involvement. The report mentions an “armed entity” which took part in the killing of civilians and police as well as taken part in other terrorist attacks which ultimately led to the destabilization of the country.
Well known journalist Webstar Tarpley filed reports stating that the US had launched a “bankrupt model of the color revolution inside Syria”, Tarpley told RT that
“What average Syrians of all ethnic groups say about this is that they are being shot at by snipers. People complained that there are terrorist snipers who are shooting at civilians, blind terrorism simply for the purpose of destabilizing the country. I would not call this civil war – it is a very misleading term. What you are dealing with here are death squads, you are dealing with terror commandos; this is a typical CIA method. In this case it’s a joint production of CIA, MI6, Mossad, it’s got money coming from Saudi Arabia, The United Arab Emirates and Qatar,” Tarpley told RT.
The Arab league observer report went on to say that “that there is widespread violence on both sides, but that the opposition and the Western media have exaggerated the violence and casualties inflicted by government forces,” writes Nicolas Davies for War Is A Crime blog, formerly After Downing Street.
This was the same as in Libya it was the reason NATO was able to do what it did launching a huge propaganda campaign for another war on a sovereign country.
When the some of the Arab league observers went to Idlib and Hama they described what they call an “armed entity” attacking security forces and ending up in many innocents being shot and even killed on the streets.
Acts to destabilize the country were well underway targeting both civilian and security personnel these acts included the bombing of buses, trains, bridges and fuel pipeline’s none of which were reported at the time by the Mainstream media.
28. The Mission noted that many parties falsely reported that explosions or violence had occurred in several locations. When the observers went to those locations, they found that those reports were unfounded.
29. The Mission also noted that, according to its teams in the field, the media exaggerated the nature of the incidents and the number of persons killed in incidents and protests in certain towns.
It was also documented that the observers witnessed both Pro government demonstrations and opposition demonstrations in a number of places which all remained relatively peaceful with minor clashes but nothing like what we were told about. The narrative that the government had been slaughtering people all over the country was widely exaggerated just as it was in Libya.
The fact that many people see the situation in the Middle East as black and white without acknowledging the facts only helps to perpetuate the situation. It allows the war hawks inside thee establishments of the West and their allies in the region to continue on ahead unabated fulfilling their own agendas launching unjust wars and conflicts across the region with very little resistance at home from the people.
What the powers that be would like is to see an all out sectarian conflict all across the region this would mean broken countries for decades and less rivals to the Hegemony of the West namely the US.
They seek to install puppet regimes which will safeguard the US’s interests and if those governments or nation don’t bow down they will be taken down as we are now seeing against the peoples revolution in Yemen!
So these groups will continued to be used and supported covertly even overtly under the guise of ‘moderate fighters’ perpetuating the situations taking place in the region for the benefit of a few while the silent majority want an end to these constant wars, conflicts, occupations and invasions.
