US Helicopters Airlifts ISIS Members From Eastern Syria
 
 
 
 
August 25, 2017 
 
 
 
 
The US has reportedly airlifted a number of ISIS militants near the eastern Syrian city of Dayr al-Zawr, where Syrian troops are closing in on the terrorists.
 
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that two US helicopters conducted the operation on Thursday morning, taking four ISIS members and a civilian from a house that had been used as an arms depot.
 
Press TV reports:
 
According to the report, the five people transferred during the operation included a foreign bomb expert, three Egyptian Daesh members and a civilian.
 
Witnesses found shaved hair of the five individuals near the area, the observatory said, adding that after airlifting the Daesh members, troops blew up the arms depot.
 
The US and its allies have been conducting airstrikes against what are said to be Daesh targets inside Syria since September 2014 without any authorization from the Damascus government or a UN mandate.
 
The military alliance has repeatedly been accused of targeting and killing civilians. It has also been largely incapable of fulfilling its declared aim of destroying Daesh.
 
The US has long been accused of colluding with Daesh to provide safe passage and logistic support to the members of the Takfiri group in conflict zones.
 
In June, the commander of the Russian forces in Syria, Colonel General Sergei Surovikin, accused US-led forces in Syria of colluding with the Daesh leaders who surrender the areas under their control and head to provinces where Syrian government forces operate.
 
The Russian commander also criticized Washington for trying to block Syrian government forces from taking control of the country's southern border.
 
Political observers warn that the US is using Daesh to create chaos in the Middle East and pursue Israel's plan to change the Middle East map by disintegrating the regional countries.

U.S. "Military Aid" to Al Qaeda, ISIS-Daesh: Pentagon Uses Illicit Arms Trafficking to Channel Enormous Shipments of Light Weapons into Syria

May 23, 2017
 
 
In relation to the tragic events in Manchester, it is important that Western public opinion be informed regarding the unspoken relationship between Western governments and the ISIS.
 
According to British media reports, the ISIS has allegedly claimed responsibility for the Manchester bombing. What they fail to mention is that the ISIS in Syria has received military aid from the Pentagon. The Islamic State (ISIS) is supported by Saudi Arabia which is faithful ally of both Britain and the US.
 
The US and its allies (including Turkey and Saudi Arabia) have relied on the illicit trade in light weaponry produced in Eastern Europe, the Balkans, China, etc. for delivery to rebel groups inside Syria, including ISIS-Daesh and Al Nusra. In turn, operating out of the occupied Golan Heights, Israel's IDF has provided weapons, ammunition, logistical support to Al Qaeda rebels operating in Southern Syria.
 
In a September 2016 interview, with the Koelner Stadt-Anzeiger,  Jabhat al-Nusra unit commander Abu Al Ezz confirms that the US is sending weapons to Al Nusrah through "third countries". 
 
"Yes, the US supports the opposition [in Syria], but not directly. They support the countries that support us. But we are not yet satisfied with this support,"
 
The above statement pertains to weapons deliveries by America's allies including Saudi Arabia, Israel, Qatar and Turkey.
 
"when Jabhat Al-Nusra was "besieged, we had officers from Turkey, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Israel and America here… Experts in the use of satellites, rockets, reconnaissance and thermal security cameras." ( RT, March 17, 2017)
 
The article below focusses on the supply routes and illicit trade in small arms used by the Pentagon to deliver weapons to the terrorists. And these are the same terrorists who are allegedly behind the bombings in European cities including Manchester, Brussels, Paris and Nice.
 
These weapons produced in third countries are purchased by the Pentagon. They are then channelled to Al Qaeda and ISIS-Daesh terrorists fighting government forces in Iraq and Syria.
 
_____________________________________________________________
 
According to Jane's Defence Weekly, quoting documents released by the U.S. Government's Federal Business Opportunities (FBO), the US -as part of its "counterterrorism campaign"- has provided Syrian rebels [aka moderate Al Qaeda] with large amounts of weapons and ammunition. 
 
The US and its allies (including Turkey and Saudi Arabia) have relied on the illicit trade in light weaponry produced in Eastern Europe, the Balkans, China, etc. for delivery to rebel groups inside Syria, including ISIS-Daesh and Al Nusra. In turn, operating out of the occupied Golan Heights, Israel's IDF has provided weapons, ammunition, logistical support to Al Qaeda rebels operating in Southern Syria. 
 
While Washington's Middle East allies undertake shady transactions in a buoyant market for light weapons, a significant part of these illicit weapons shipments is nonetheless directly commissioned by the US government. 
 
These shipments of weapons are not conducted through internationally approved weapons transfers. While they are the result of  a Pentagon (or US government) procurement, they are not recorded as "official" military aid. They use private traders and shipping companies within the realm of a thriving illicit trade in light weapons. 
 
Based on the examination of a single December 2015 Pentagon sponsored shipment of more than 990 tons, one can reasonably conclude that the amounts of light weapons in the hands of  "opposition" rebels inside Syria is substantial and exceedingly large.  
 
Background: U.S. Weapons Supply Routes "Via Third Countries"
 
Although the bulk of the weapons and ammunition supplied to the Syrian rebels (including the FSA, Al Qaeda affiliated entities and ISIS-Daesh) are channelled by Turkey and Saudi Arabia, the US is also involved in the routine delivery (originating from third countries) of light weapons to the rebels including anti-tank and rocket launchers.
 
America's weapons shipments to Syria's rebels are commissioned by the Pentagon (and/or a US government agency) through several intermediaries via private weapons trading and shipping companies from the Black Sea port city of Constanta. None of these weapons under this de facto (unofficial) "US military aid" program are "Made in the USA". These light weapons purchased in Eastern Europe and the Balkans in the illicit market are relatively inexpensive.
 
Moreover, Washington's decision not to send US made weaponry to the rebels is meant to uphold the camouflage. No doubt, what Washington wants is to ensure that US and/or Western made weapons are not found in the hands of terrorists. As we recall, the White House narrative at the outset of the war in 2011 was: "humanitarian aid" to the rebels, coupled with "some military gear….[but no weapons]" (BBC, October 10, 2015)
 
US military aid to the rebels channeled (unofficially) through the illicit market, is routine and ongoing. In December 2015, a major US sponsored shipment of a staggering 995 tons of weapons was conducted in blatant violation of the ceasefire. According to Jane's Defence Weekly, the U.S.   "is providing [the weapons] to Syrian rebel groups as part of a programme that continues despite the widely respected ceasefire in that country [in December 2015]."
 
According to Jane, the shipments of weapons on behalf of the US are entrusted to private weapons traders and shipping companies:
 
"The FBO has released two solicitations in recent months [early 2015] looking for shipping companies to transport explosive material from Eastern Europe to the Jordanian port of Aqaba on behalf of the US Navy's Military Sealift Command." (Jane.com April 2016)
 
The shipments of weapons purchased and funded by the US are carefully coordinated, with deliveries to rebels in the North and South of Syria respectively. The weapons are shipped out of the Romanian Black Sea port of Constanta (December 2015):
 
1) First, to the Turkish Eastern Mediterranean facility of Agalar-Limani near Tasucu in support of rebels in Northern Syria, to be smuggled into Syria with the support of the Turkish authorities. (half the shipment unloaded)
 
2) The remainder of the shipment to the Jordanian Red Sea port of Aqaba (for rebels in Southern Syria) via the Suez canal. From Aqaba, the weapons would be smuggled into Syria through the Southern Syria-Jordanian border.
 
According to Jane, the cargo of light weaponry included AK-47 rifles, PKM general-purpose machine guns, DShK heavy machine guns, RPG-7 rocket launchers, and 9K111M Faktoria anti-tank guided weapon (ATGW) systems. It is worth noting that a large share of the RPG rocket launchers were slated for delivery to Northern Syria (see table below).
 
Also of significance, the Black Sea route to Syria has also been used to ship Ukrainian weapons to Al Qaeda and ISIS Daesh.

994 Tons of Weapons in a Single shipment, Courtesy of Uncle Sam
 
The following table provides information on the breakdown of the weapons shipment for December 2015 documented by Jane Defense Weekly.
 
Bear in mind the numbers pertain to a single shipment in December 2015, expressed in kilos (kg).
 
The amounts are substantial:
 
The 7.62 x 39 mm refers to ammunition for an AK47. Namely the shipment of 134 tons of ammunition.
 
The PG 7 VM (2 kg) and PV7 VT (3.3 kg) are anti-tank grenades (which suggests that more than 25,000 PG 7VM units were included in the shipment, and more than 60,000 PG 7VT.)
 
The total shipment to Aqaba and Agalar is of the order of 994 tons of "humanitarian" R2P light weapons for the "Moderates" in Syria. (in a single shipment out of Romania) among numerous comparable shipments by sea as well as by air.

This trade in light weapons is transacted through private companies on contract to the US government's Federal Business Opportunities (FBO), a commercial trading entity acting on behalf of the US Navy MSC:
 
Stages 1,2 and 3:
 
1) The Pentagon (or the relevant government agency) instructs the US Navy MSC with details and specifications of the light weapons to be purchased and shipped to Syria's "freedom fighters" via Turkey and Jordan. The ports of delivery are specified. The final destination of the weapons is not mentioned.
 
2) The Navy's MSC places the order with the FBO.
 
3) The FBO in turn transacts with private companies for the procurement and shipping of the weapons and "explosive materials" out of Constanta, Romania.
 
PENTAGON -- US NAVY MSC -- FEDERAL BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES (FBO) --  (ILLICIT) PRIVATE TRADERS IN LIGHT WEAPONS, SHIPPING COMPANIES -- SMUGGLED INTO SYRIA THROUGH TURKEY AND JORDAN -- DELIVERED TO ISIS-DAESH, AL QAEDA, AL NUSRA, "MODERATE REBELS", FREE SYRIAN ARMY (FSA), ET AL.
 
According to Jane's report:"The FBO has released two solicitations in recent months looking for shipping companies to transport explosive material from Eastern Europe to the Jordanian port of Aqaba on behalf of the US Navy's Military Sealift Command."  (emphasis added)
 
A still from a video released by the Syrian rebel group Jaish al-Izzah on 16 December 2015 shows one of its fighters preparing to fire an ATGW that could be either a 9K111 Fagot or a 9K111M Faktoria, the two being externally identical. Jaish al-Izzah also uses US-made TOW ATGWs. Source: Jane Defence Weekly
 
Released on 3 November 2015, the first solicitation sought a contractor to ship 81 containers of cargo that included explosive material from Constanta in Romania to Aqaba.
 
The solicitation was subsequently updated with a detailed packing list that showed the cargo had a total weight of 994 tonnes, a little under half of which was to be unloaded at Agalar, a military pier near the Turkish town of Tasucu, the other half at Aqaba. (Jane's op cit)
 
The US Navy's Military Sealift Command's (MSC) mission is  to "Operate the ships which sustain our warfighting forces and deliver specialized maritime services in support of national security objectives in peace and war." (MSC mission)
 
 
Weapons Shipments by America's Allies in the Middle East 
 
The Jane Defence Weekly report pertains to shipments initiated by the Pentagon through a third country. It does not address the broader and much larger flow of military equipment and weaponry to Al Qaeda and the Islamic State, commissioned by America's allies in the Middle East (e.g Turkey, Saudi Arabia). These light weapons are also purchased from third countries  ( i.e. Eastern Europe, Balkans) through private traders:
 
[In 2012] representatives of the Free Syrian Army made contact with weapons dealers in Eastern Europe and the Black Sea region, hoping to procure weapons that would then be smuggled across the Turkish-Syrian border. The Syrian rebels also reached out to [al Qaeda] militia groups in Libya for assistance. The Libyan groups have proven to be a particularly important source of weapons for the Syrian insurgents. …
 
Efforts by Libyan brokers to supply the rebels have coincided with, and perhaps been tied to, efforts by Turkey, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Jordan to arm the rebels. …   Global initiative against Transnational Crimes (2013 Study)
 
According to Deutsche Welle, exports of weapons from third countries (eg. Romania) to Syria are also dispatched by air via Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Turkey and the UAE:  "…the munitions, including Kalashnikov AK-47 assault rifles, machine guns, grenades as well as anti-tank guns, are initially off-loaded in Saudi airbases and ports before smugglers dispatch them to Syrian militants." (quoted by Press TV, August 8, 2016, emphasis added)
 
"International norms governing the control of exports of military technology and equipment are brazenly flouted, the report said, and a considerable amount of munitions exported from Bulgaria to the aforementioned countries only bear the sign "unknown consignment."
 
Such weapons have previously ended up in the hands of such terrorist groups as Daesh, which Saudi Arabia is widely believed to be supporting.
 
Earlier reports had already exposed that arms were purportedly being trucked into Syria under Turkish military escort, and transferred to militant leaders at prearranged rendezvous." (Press TV, August 8, 2016)
 
Concluding Remarks
 
The United States and its allies use arms trafficking -i.e. the unregulated illicit trade in light weapons through private traders including organized crime-, to channel large amounts of weapons and ammunition to the terrorists inside Syria. These shady transactions initiated in Washington are in derogation of international law and the treaties under UN auspices pertaining to the trade in small and light weaponry.
 
Pentagon procurement is directed -through various intermediaries- towards the illicit purchase of light weapons: In all probability, the budgets allocated by the Pentagon to financing these  purchases of weapons channeled towards Syria are not accounted for and/or categorized by the US Department of Defense as bona fide "US military aid". Meanwhile the UN has remained mum on the State sponsorship of the illegal purchase and smuggling of weapons into Syria.

Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard accuses Trump of selling weapons to ISIS and Al-Qaeda
 
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has blasted the Trump Administration for selling weapons to ISIS and al-Qaeda, continuing the same tradition that previous administrations before him followed.
 
Trump's new $460 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia will see US-funded weapons get into the hands of terrorist groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda - something Tulsi Gabbard claims is exactly what the US Deep State want.
 
The Congresswoman previously stated that the Obama administration directly funded ISIS and Al-Qaeda after returning on a secret fact-finding mission in Syria.
 
Speaking with CNN, Gabbard claimed to have obtained proof that the U.S. government was funding terrorists in order to covertly advance their Middle East agenda.
 
She told Jake Tapper  that Syrians "expressed happiness and joy at seeing an American walking their streets." But they also wanted to know "why is it that the United States, its allies and other countries, are providing support, are providing arms, to terrorist groups like Al-Nusra, Al-Qaeda, ISIS, who are on the ground there, raping, kidnapping, torturing, and killing the Syrian people? "
 
"They asked me why is the United States supporting these terrorist groups who are destroying Syria - when it was Al-Qaeda who attacked the United States on 9/11, not Syria."
 
The outspoken Congresswoman took to Twitter on Saturday, blasting the Trump administration for their hypocrisy in talking tough on terrorism while funding the very same terrorists they claim to be fighting.

Trump Admin talks tough on ISIS & terrorism, while selling weapons to the greatest supporter of terror groups like al-Qaeda & ISIS

Antiwar.com reports: Saudi Arabia is the world's largest sponsor and propagator of the extremist Wahhabi Salafist ideology that fuels terrorist groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda. Based on Saudi Arabia's history and track record, there is a significant likelihood these weapons will be used against innocent civilians or end up in the hands of terrorist groups.
 
"Saudi Arabia has spent hundreds of billions of dollars spreading their extreme Wahhabi Salafist ideology around the world, creating fertile ground for terrorist organizations like ISIS and al-Qaeda to recruit, while simultaneously providing direct support to terrorist groups who pose a direct threat to US interests and who are fighting to overthrow the Syrian government.
 
The hypocrisy in the Trump administration's actions toward Saudi Arabia began in February 2017 with the newly-appointed CIA Director Mike Pompeo presenting Saudi Crown Prince bin Nayef with the George Tenet Award in recognition of Prince bin Nayef's 'excellent intelligence performance, in the domain of counter-terrorism and his unbound contribution to realize world security and peace.'
 
This hypocrisy continues now as the Trump administration talks tough against ISIS and terrorism, while selling weapons to, supporting, and praising a country that beheads dissidents, oppresses women, persecutes religious minorities, atheists, and LGBT people, and is the greatest supporter of terror groups like al-Qaeda and ISIS in the world today.
 
This arms deal will enable Saudi Arabia to use U.S.-made weapons in their war crimes against Yemeni civilians in a brutal civil war, and continue perpetuating human rights atrocities at home and abroad," said Rep. Tulsi Gabbard.
 
Background: Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard has introduced H.R. 608, the bipartisan Stop Arming Terrorists Act, which would prohibit any Federal agency from using taxpayer dollars to provide weapons, cash, intelligence, or any support to armed militants who are allied with al-Qaeda, ISIS and other terrorist groups, and it will prohibit the U.S. government from funneling money and weapons through other countries like Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Qatar who are directly or indirectly supporting terrorists.
 
Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard also recently sent a letter to Secretary Mattis urging an end to the United States' military participation in Yemen's civil war, where 19 million people need emergency support and which has never been authorized by Congress, and calling for a Congressional briefing on the White House's strategy in Yemen.

Trump Has Given Pentagon 30 Days To Develop Plan To Defeat ISIS
 
 
 
January 29, 2017
 
 
 
President Donald Trump has given the Pentagon 30 days to develop a strategy to defeat ISIS.
 
Following a telephone conversation with Russian President Putin, Trump signed an executive order directing the military to develop a preliminary plan to defeat the terrorists in Iraq and Syria.
 
RT reports:
 
It is the policy of the United States that ISIS be defeated," reads the order published on the White House website on Saturday. "Within 30 days, a preliminary draft of the Plan to defeat ISIS shall be submitted to the President by the Secretary of Defense."
 
The comprehensive plan should include guidelines on the use of public diplomacy, information operations, and cyber strategies "to isolate and delegitimize ISIS [Islamic State, formerly ISIL] and its radical Islamist ideology."
 
It will also seek to identify "new coalition partners in the fight against ISIS and policies to empower coalition partners" to fight Islamic State and its affiliates.
 
The number of proposed measures "would depend upon the political risk that the president is willing to take when we do certain things that could exacerbate things with Russia or Turkey," one defense official told Washington Post on Monday.
 
Earlier in the day, Trump and Putin had their first telephone conversation, in which they expressed their mutual intent to cooperate on combatting Islamic State.
 
"The presidents have spoken in favor of establishing a real coordination between the US and Russian actions in order to defeat ISIS and other terrorist organizations in Syria," the Kremlin statement said.

Trump & Terrorist Funding
 
 
 
 
President-elect Donald Trump plans to shut down terrorist funding which operates under the umbrella of the Federal Government.
 
He has declared that on his watch the United States will stop supporting ISIS and militant opposition groups in Syria.
 
Instead the U.S. will work with Russia and the Syrian government to defeat ISIS and the terrorist organizations attempting to overthrow Assad's government.
 
Trump stated that while he "did not like [Mr Assad] at all", he respects Syria's sovereignty and believes the U.S. has no place providing assistance to Islamic terrorists attempting to overthrow a foreign government.
 
He has the support of Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard.
 
Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard told CNN that the U.S. government funds both ISIS and Al Qaeda, in a live interview. 
 
According to the Hawaii representative, Donald Trump's priority as President should be de-funding both of these terrorist organisations as soon as possible.
 
Independentsentinel.com reports:
 
"I love my job. The people of Hawaii chose me to work again in November.
 
My goal in going there, in receiving the invitation to speak to President-Elect Trump was to speak specifically about the situation in Syria and the consequences of escalating the regime change war that the United States is ruling along with countries like Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey and escalating that view a no-fly zone or safe zone.
 
And urging him to end the regime change war, to stop funding directly and indirectly groups working with ISIS and Al Qaeda and to stop funneling the dollars and weapons and assistance from others directly supporting the terrorist groups who are supposed to be our enemy who we are supposed to be fighting to defeat."
 
When Tapper asked her if she was suggesting the US was funding these terrorist groups, she said we were.
 
"I am not only suggesting it. This is the reality that we are living in. If you or I were to go and provide money, weapons or support to a group like al Qaeda or ISIS, we'd be thrown in jail. However, the U.S. Government has been providing money, weapons, intel, assistance and other types of support through the CIA directly to these groups that are working with and are affiliated with al Qaeda and ISIS."
 
Tapper asked for confirmation and he got it.
 
Rep. Gabbard said, "There have been numerous reports from news outlets who have declared the rebel groups formed battlefield alliances with Al Qaeda. Essentially Al Qaeda groups are in charge of every single rebel group on the ground fighting in Syria to overthrow the Syrian government."
 
Tapper said intelligence services screen these groups to make sure that doesn't happen but Rep. Gabbard disagrees.
 
"I beg to differ," she said. "Evidence has shown time and time again that that is not the case, that we are both directly and indirectly supporting these groups who are allied with or partnered with Al Qaeda and ISIS, and working to overthrow the Syrian government of Assad and we have also provided the support through countries like Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar to do that."
 
Wikileakes recently leaked the Podesta emails in which Hillary Clinton admitted the US was funding Saudi Arabia and Qatar who were in turn funding terrorist groups.
 
 
What are members opinions on this?

Syria: Undeclared US-NATO War of Aggression, Using Al Qaeda Terrorism as An Instrument of Death and Destruction
 
 
 
 
January 28, 2017
 
 
 
 
 
The following concepts are intended to clarify the nature of the war on Syria. 
 
It was never "a civil war". 
 
It was an undeclared  war of aggression using Al Qaeda affiliated terrorists as the foot-soldiers of US-NATO and their Middle East allies.  
 
From day one, terrorists were involved in the killing of civilians. 
 
It started in Daraa as an insurgency integrated by Salafist mercenaries. 
 
Most of what is presented below is backed up by mainstream and official sources of information.  
 
1. The Daraa "Protest Movement" on March 17-18 2011
 
Daraa is a small border town.  National protest movements are invariably initiated in large urban areas.
 
The Daraa "Protests" had all the appearances of a staged event involving covert support to "Islamic terrorists".
 
Government sources pointed to the role of radical Salafist groups.  In chorus, the Western media described the events in Daraa as a protest movement against Bashar Al Assad. Tacitly acknowledged by the media, many of the alleged "demonstrators" were professional killers.
 
In a bitter irony, the deaths of policemen were higher than those of "demonstrators". It was not a protest movement, it was an armed insurgency.
 
In Daraa, roof top snipers were targeting both police and protesters  
 
Reading between the lines of Israeli and Lebanese news reports (which acknowledge the police deaths) a clearer picture of what happened in Daraa on March 17-18 had emerged. The Israel National News Report (which can not be accused of being biased in favor of Bashar al Assad) confirmed that:
 
"Seven police officers and at least four demonstrators in Syria have been killed in continuing violent clashes that erupted in the southern town of Daraa last Thursday. … and the Baath Party Headquarters and courthouse were torched, in renewed violence on Sunday. (Gavriel Queenann, Syria: Seven Police Killed, Buildings Torched in Protests, Israel National News, Arutz Sheva, March 21, 2011, emphasis added)
 
The Lebanese news report also acknowledged the killings of seven policemen in Daraa.
 
[They were killed] "during clashes between the security forces and protesters… They got killed trying to drive away protesters during demonstration in Dara'a" 
 
The Lebanese Ya Libnan report quoting Al Jazeera also acknowledged that protesters had "burned the headquarters of the Baath Party and the court house in Dara'a" (emphasis added)
 
These news reports of the events in Daraa confirmed that from the very outset this was not a "peaceful protest" as claimed by the Western media.
 
Moreover, from an assessment of the initial casualty figures (Israel News), there were more policemen than "demonstrators" who were killed.
 
This is significant because it suggests that the police force may have initially been outnumbered by a well organized armed gang of professional killers.
 
2. Recruitment and Training of Terrorists From the Very Outset in 2011
 
From Day One, the Islamist "freedom fighters" were supported, trained and equipped by NATO and Turkey's High Command. According to Israeli intelligence sources:
 
NATO headquarters in Brussels and the Turkish high command are meanwhile drawing up plans for their first military step in Syria, which is to arm the rebels with weapons for combating the tanks and helicopters spearheading the Assad regime's crackdown on dissent. … NATO strategists are thinking more in terms of pouring large quantities of anti-tank and anti-air rockets, mortars and heavy machine guns into the protest centers for beating back the government armored forces. (DEBKAfile, NATO to give rebels anti-tank weapons, August 14, 2011)
 
This initiative, which was also supported by Saudi Arabia and Qatar, involved a process of organized recruitment of thousands of jihadist "freedom fighters", reminiscent of  the enlistment of  Mujahideen to wage the CIA's jihad (holy war) in the heyday of the Soviet-Afghan war:
 
Also discussed in Brussels and Ankara, our sources report, is a campaign to enlist thousands of Muslim volunteers in Middle East countries and the Muslim world to fight alongside the Syrian rebels. The Turkish army would house these volunteers, train them and secure their passage into Syria. (Ibid, emphasis added)
 
These mercenaries were subsequently integrated into US and allied sponsored terrorist organizations including Al Nusrah and ISIS.
 
3. June 2014. The Staged ISIS "Invasion" of Iraq
 
The Islamic State is protected by the US and its allies.
 
If they had wanted to eliminate the Islamic State brigades, they could have "carpet" bombed their convoys of Toyota pickup trucks when they crossed the desert from Syria into Iraq in June 2014.
 
\
 
The  Syro-Arabian Desert is open territory (see map below). With state of the art jet fighter aircraft (F15, F22 Raptor, CF-18) it would have been  -from a military standpoint-  a rapid and expedient surgical operation  
 
But the objective was not to eliminate them, the objective was to support them.
 
4. September 2014. Obama's "Counter-Terrorism Campaign". US-NATO and Coalition "Humanitarian" Airstrikes "Directed against ISIS"
 
In September 2014, Obama ordered a "counter-terrorism" bombing campaign against the ISIS in both Syria and Iraq.  This major bombing campaign was initiated two months months after the entry of the ISIS convoy of Toyota pickup trucks into Iraq in June 2014. The bombing campaign has now entered into its third year. Its objective was NOT to go after the Islamic State (ISIS-Daesh). The coalition consisted of some 4o countries five allied Arab monarchies, which are known to provide support to both ISIS and al Qaeda.  The "40-nation coalition that unleashed more than 200 airstrikes in Syria on a single night with state-of-the-art U.S. fighter planes and help from five allied Arab monarchies" Among the advanced weapons system allegedly used against the ISIS was the F-22 Raptor.
 
The total number of US and coalition sorties against Syria and Iraq is of the order of 111,410. This translates into an average of 147 sorties a day (over a period of 755 days).
 
More than 8,300 strike sorties have been carried out against Syria according to US Department of Defense sources.
 
The non-strike sorties have been used for the purposes of reconnaissance, logistics and coordination with terrorist commandos on the ground. 
 
31,900 targets in Syria and Iraq have been hit by US war planes (see table below) including public buildings, residential areas, economic infrastructure (all of which was waged under a fake campaign against ISIS- Daesh).
 
Over a two year period (September 2014- September 2016)
 
Its all for a good cause. None of these strikes were directed at the Syrian people, according to official statements.
 
And these humanitarian statements have never been challenged by the Western media.
 
The initiative was part of the "Global War on Terrorism". It was in violation of  international law. What we are dealing with are extensive war crimes directed against the people of Syria and Iraq.

6. The Cost of Obama's Air Campaign: 9.3 billion dollars 
 
755 days, 12.3 million dollars a day since August 2014
 
These are the costs of destroying Iraq and Syria. killing tens of thousands of Syrians, triggering a refugee crisis. These costs are ultimately financed by tax dollars. We are dealing with the conduct of extensive war crimes. The mainstream media remains on silent this issue. 
 
These 12.3 million dollars a day are the cost of destroying Syria and Iraq and killing their people.
 
In the table above the "official" breakdown is provided, the figures refer to US strikes against Syria and Iraq.
 
31,900 targets as part of a war on terrorism. Ironically, the number of terrorists has increased dramatically as a result of the "counter-terrorism" campaign, not to mention the NATO sponsored international campaign of recruitment of terrorists.
 
7. U.S. Weapons to Al Qaeda and ISIS 
 
According to Jane's Defence Weekly, quoting documents released by the U.S. Government's Federal Business Opportunities (FBO), the US -as part of its "counterterrorism campaign"- has provided Syrian rebels [aka moderate Al Qaeda] with large amounts of weapons and ammunition.
 
The US and its allies (including Turkey and Saudi Arabia) have relied on the illicit trade in light weaponry produced in Eastern Europe, the Balkans, China, etc. for delivery to rebel groups inside Syria, including ISIS-Daesh and Al Nusra. In turn, operating out of the occupied Golan Heights, Israel's IDF has provided weapons, ammunition, logistical support to Al Qaeda rebels operating in Southern Syria.
 
While Washington's Middle East allies undertake shady transactions in a buoyant market for light weapons, a significant part of these illicit weapons shipments is nonetheless directly commissioned by the US government.
 
These shipments of weapons are not conducted through internationally approved weapons transfers. While they are the result of  a Pentagon (or US government) procurement, they are not recorded as "official" military aid. They use private traders and shipping companies within the realm of a thriving illicit trade in light weapons.
 
Based on the examination of a single December 2015 Pentagon sponsored shipment of more than 990 tons, one can reasonably conclude that the amounts of light weapons in the hands of  "opposition" rebels inside Syria is substantial and exceedingly large.

8. Weapons "Made in Canada" Delivered to Saudi Arabia, A State Sponsor of Terrorism  
 
Ottawa's deal with Saudi Arabia is coordinated with Washington. It essentially serves the Pentagon's military agenda in the Middle East, it channels billions of dollars to the US military industrial complex.
 
Amply documented, Saudi Arabia is the state sponsor of Al Qaeda affiliated "opposition groups" in Syria including the Islamic State (ISIS). Riyadh -acting in liaison and on behalf of Washington- plays a central role in the financing of the Islamic State (ISIS) as well as the recruitment, training and religious indoctrination of terrorist mercenary forces deployed in Syria and Iraq.
 
What this signifies is that Canada is selling weapons to a country which is supporting and sponsoring terrorist organizations.  Moreover Saudi Arabia is currently involved in a war of aggression against Yemen in blatant derogation of international law.
 
The weapons are "Made in Canada" produced by General Dynamics Land Systems, London, Ontario., a subsidiary of US defense contractor General Dynamics.
 
General Dynamics has subsidiaries in 43 countries including Canada.
 
Ottawa's official stance is that these weapons which include "combat vehicles with machine guns and anti-tank cannons" are to be used by Saudi Arabia solely for purposes of national defense. They are not be used against civilians.
 
Opponents of Canada's $15-billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia took Ottawa to court. The action was led by law Professor Daniel Turp together with students of the University of Montreal. In a recent judgment (January 23) by Federal Court in Montreal, the case was dismissed: "Justice Daniele Tremblay-Lamer ruled that the court's role was not to "pass moral judgment" on the decision by then-foreign affairs minister Stéphane Dion to issue export permits allowing the deal."
 
9. The Liberation of Aleppo
 
While Aleppo has been liberated against the scourge of US-NATO supported terrorism, most mainstream media are accusing Syrian government forces of committing atrocities against civilians, describing Aleppo as a humanitarian crisis. What they fail to mention is that for the last four years the Eastern part of  Aleppo has been occupied by Al Qaeda terrorists who are now upheld as "opposition" rebels.
 
The terrorists are described as the victims of Syrian government aggression. From the very outset, the atrocities committed by the terrorists are casually blamed on Syrian government forces and their allies.

Russia Accuses US Of Colluding With ISIS In Syria
 
FORCES, ARMED, ISIS, ATTACK, BATTLING, GOVERNMENT, STRIKES, PALMYRA, U.S.-LED, FIGHTING, CONFRONTATION, MILITIAS, U.S., TROOPS, MILITARY, AMERICANS, AIRSTRIKES, ASSAD-ALIGNED, BORDER, ASSAD, SUROVIKIN, RAQQA, RUSSIA, SYRIAN, TERRORISM, TRUMP, ISLAMIC, RUSSIAN, SYRIA,
 
 
June 10, 2017
 
 
The Russian military has accused the U.S.-led coalition of providing safe passage for ISIS terrorists to leave the area around its stronghold of Raqqa in Syria.
 
General Sergei Surovikin, commander of the Russian forces in Syria, claimed in a briefing that ISIS recently made a deal with Kurdish forces to leave two villages located southwest of Raqqa and head toward Palmyra, instead. 
 
Surovikin said that "it looks like Americans use IS in order to forestall the advances of Syrian government forces under the excuse of fighting international terrorism."
 
Carey Wedler for Anti Media reports:
 
The general claimed the Kurds and U.S. forces "collude with the leaders of the IS, who surrender the areas under their control and head to provinces where Syrian government forces operate."
 
According to Surovikin, "There is an impression that under the slogan of fighting international terrorism in Syria the Americans are using IS to offer resistance to government forces' advances."
 
If this is the case, it would certainly fall in line with the U.S. establishment's opposition to the Assad regime and their consistent calls for the Syrian president's removal from power. Though President Trump initially campaigned on the platform of moving away from America's longstanding policy of regime change and nation-building, his administration shifted gears in April following a chemical weapons attack that the West pinned on Assad, despite refutations from some experts. During his time in office, President Barack Obama also repeatedly called for Assad's removal, as did Hillary Clinton.
 
The Russian general further criticized the United States on Friday for attempting to attack Syrian government forces in Syria as the Russian military and pro-Assad troops continue to attack the Islamic State directly. Though the United States has certainly launched airstrikes against the terror group, it has also ramped up efforts against Assad-aligned forces, which are directly battling ISIS - a contradictory stance if the top priority is to destroy ISIS, as the Trump administration has claimed.
 
Despite the fact that Iranian militias within Syria are effectively battling the Islamic State, the United States has pushed for direct confrontation with those militias as they have attempted to retake the southern border region of Al-Tanf. Just this week, the United States launched two airstrikes on pro-government forces, drawing criticism from the Syrian government. The U.S. military also shot down an armed drone that allegedly dropped munitions over a U.S. coalition training base.
 
The U.S. has justified these actions claiming Syrian-allied troops threatened their training camp in the country, but Surkovikin dismisses these justifications. He "dismissed the U.S. argument that Syrian government forces there posed a threat to the training camp as 'absurd' and criticized Washington's action as a violation of Syria's sovereign right to protect its border," according to U.S. News.
 
Indeed, the United States is an outside invading force in Syria, and though Russia is far from innocent in its bombings - and is responsible for many civilian deaths, just like the United States - it is a Syrian ally that was welcomed into the country, as was Iran.
 
Col. Gen. Sergei Rudskoi of the Russian military's General Staff also questioned the U.S. military's motives:
 
"Having declared the goal of fighting international terrorism, the coalition strikes Syrian troops while letting IS militants exit the encircled areas unhampered, thus boosting terrorist groupings around Palmyra and Deir el-Zour. It raises a question why they do it and what their real goals are."

I Witnessed Obama Funding ISIS In Syria, Says Top Priest
 
 
 
 
 
February 1, 2017
 
 
 
 
 
A top priest living in Syria claims that former President Barack Obama provided funding to ISIS in order to overthrow the government of President Assad.
 
Western media reports on the conflict in Syria are very misleading, according to Belgian priest Father Daniël Maes, who is causing controversy in Europe by claiming that the U.S. under President Obama was providing funding to ISIS and Al-Qaeda because "the Americans and their allies want to completely ruin the country."
 
The bombshell interview with Father Daniel, who lives in Syria and has witnessed the war first hand, provides support for Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard's claim that the US under President Obama was providing clandestine financial and logistical support to ISIS and Al-Qaeda in order to overthrow the government of President Assad.
 
In an interview published in the Dutch daily newspaper Algameen Dagblad, Father Daniel explained that the Western media is full of "followers and cowards" and has failed the people of Syria by writing what their governments have told them report.
 
Describing Hillary Clinton as a "devil in holy water" because she deliberately worsened the conflict while in office, Father Daniel claims to be optimistic about Trump's geopolitics: "He sees what every normal person understands: That the United States should stop undermining countries which possess natural resources."
 
Father Daniel says "Putin and Assad saved my life"
 
Father Daniel, 78, lives in the city of Qara, 60 miles north of Damascus. He says "Putin and Assad saved my life"
 
 
Interviewer: You are very critical of the media coverage on Syria. What is bothering you?
 
Father Daniel: "The idea that a popular uprising took place against President Assad is completely false. I've been in Qara since 2010 and I have seen with my own eyes how agitators from outside Syria organized protests against the government and recruited young people. That was filmed and aired by Al Jazeera to give the impression that a rebellion was taking place. Murders were committed by foreign terrorists, against the Sunni and Christian communities, in an effort to sow religious and ethnic discord among the Syrian people. While in my experience, the Syrian people were actually very united.
 
Before the war, this was a harmonious country: a secular state in which different religious communities lived side by side peacefully. There was hardly any poverty, education was free, and health care was good. It was only not possible to freely express your political views. But most people did not care about that."
 
Interviewer: Sister Agnès-Mariam, the Lebanese-French prioress of your Mar Yakub ("Saint Jacob") monastery, is accused of siding with the regime. She has friends at the highest level.
 
Father Daniel: "Sister Agnès-Mariam helps the population: she has recently opened a soup kitchen in Aleppo, where 25,000 meals are prepared five times a week. Look, it is miraculous that we are still alive. We owe that to the army of Assad's government and to Vladimir Putin, because he decided to intervene when the rebels threatened to take power.
 
When thousands of terrorists settled in Qara, we became afraid for our lives. They came from the Gulf States, Saudi Arabia, Europe, Turkey, Libya, there were many Chechens. They formed a foreign occupation force, all allied to al-Qaeda and other terrorists. Armed to the teeth by the West and their allies with the intention to act against us, they literally said: "This country belongs to us now." Often, they were drugged, they fought each other, in the evening they fired randomly.
 
We had to hide in the crypts of the monastery for a long time. When the Syrian army chased them away, everybody was happy: the Syrian citizens because they hate the foreign rebels, and we because peace had returned."
 
Interviewer: You say that the Syrian Army protects civilians, yet there are all sorts of reports about war crimes committed by Assad's forces, such as the bombardments with barrel bombs.
 
Father Daniel: "Do you not know that the media coverage on Syria is the biggest media lie of our time? They have sold pure nonsense about Assad: It was actually the rebels who plundered and killed. Do you think that the Syrian people are stupid? Do you think those people were forced to cheer for Assad and Putin? It is the Americans who have a hand in all of this, for pipelines and natural resources in this region and to thwart Putin."
 
Saudi Arabia and Qatar want to establish a Sunni state in Syria, without religious freedom. Therefore, Assad must go. You know, when the Syrian army was preparing for the battle in Aleppo, Muslim soldiers came to me to be blessed. Between ordinary Muslims and Christians, there is no problem. It is those radical Islamic, Western-backed rebels who want to massacre us. They are all al Qaeda and IS. There are not any moderate fighters anymore."
 
Interviewer: You once mentioned Hillary Clinton to be a 'devil in holy water', because as foreign minister, she deliberately worsened the conflict.
 
Father Daniel: "I am happy with Trump. He sees what every normal person understands: That the United States should stop undermining countries which possess natural resources. The Americans' attempt to impose a unipolar world is the biggest problem. Trump understands that radical Islam is a bigger threat than Russia.
 
What do I care whether he occasionally takes off his pants? If Trump practices geopolitics the way he has promised to do so, then the future looks bright. Then it will become similar to Putin's approach. And hopefully then, there will be a solution for Syria, and peace will return."
 
Interviewer: You understand that your analysis is controversial and will encounter much criticism?
 
Father Daniel: "I speak from personal observation. And no one has to believe me, right? But I know one thing: The media can either contribute to the massacre of the Syrian people or help the Syrian people, with their media coverage. Unfortunately, there are too many followers and cowards among journalists."

Another Bombshell Coincidence That Proves ISIS Works For West (VIDEO)
 
ISIS, ARMY, MILITARY, OVERTHROW, CREATION, U.S., MEDIA, NEOCONS, CIA'S, ENEMIES, DOLLARS, INVASIONS, TRUTH, WORLDWIDE, POLITICIANS, WEST, COINCIDENCE, PROPAGANDA, OVERTHROWS, QAEDA, AMERICAN, AFGHANISTAN, MAINSTREAM, CRIMINALS,             
 
 
June 02, 2017
 
 
Magical and logic-defying ISIS is not only suddenly living in caves in Afghanistan where they now project the illusion of perpetual existence just like "al Qaeda" but they are now conveniently in the Philippines where President Duterte had declared the U.S. his enemies in 2016. The ruling elite NEED ISIS to not only exist but to appear indestructible and permanently illusive in order to keep the ISIS script going. This is why the West and its allies have been supporting ISIS since day one with supplies and weapons without which they would not even exist today. This should be enough to anger every single American.
 
Why is all of this happening? Because it guarantees that the U.S. can continue rationalizing wars, government overthrows, invasions and more attacks throughout not only the Middle East but wherever they decide to retroactively give ISIS "credit" for "explosions" that take place anywhere in the world. Also, the perceived perpetual existence of ISIS guarantees the continued flow of BILLIONS of dollars to the Pentagon Slush Fund and much more. It's a win-win for both the Neocons and the globalists attempting to overthrow Trump but also the Military Industrial Complex.
 
Given that information is freely and easily available today, anyone can see that the Islamic State or ISIS is nothing more than a convenient proxy army to serve the needs of the West and its allies. Denying this reality is a CHOICE made of ignorance. That selective ignorance is the reason why "ISIS" is alive and well in many people's minds. This is a perfect dream scenario for the criminals who did 9/11 who to this day are still laughing at the idiots who still believe CIA's creation "al Qaeda" did 9/11. Such is the political world we live in.
 
If you understand this ISIS script and how it's being used to push the globalist new world order agenda and help the US Military Industrial Complex wage more and more war worldwide as the US destroys its enemies help spread this information so that humanity can move forward based on truth not mainstream media lies and propaganda. This truth about ISIS will also help hold politicians accountable and give more voice to politicians like Representative Tulsi Gabbard in Hawaii.
