Iraq, Ukraine and overall lie of American democratization

As huge swatches of Iraq and the Middle East begin to fall to the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, an al-Qaeda terrorist groups, determined to create their own caliphate in the region, the similarities to their rise to power and other marginal violent groups with the support of the US/NATO/CIA, is something that peace loving citizens of the world should take heed of and be alarmed about. What started as an "anti-regime" formation in Libya, Syria and the Middle East, is now on the verge to founding its own state. The parallels to their rise and the rise of fascist groups in Ukraine should not be ignored.
The conflict in Ukraine is the latest disaster in American meddling and geopolitical chess. And again millions of people have died, lost loved ones or had their lives destroyed or thrown into upheaval. And yet another country is facing complete economic collapse and in fact the end of its existence as a sovereign territorial entity.
The destruction of Ukraine, however, is now being overshadowed by the continuing destruction of Iraq which should have seen the end of US meddling or, at least, have been a warning to any state, who the US was interested in, spreading the "democracy" in.
The ISIL: The Rise of the US' Islamic Terrorists
The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS), an al-Qaeda associated extremist Sunni terrorist army, has now taken over huge swatches of oil rich Iraq and parts of Syria as it attempts to create its own caliphate in the Middle East, one which will span the territories of multiple countries. Its territorial gains in the past weeks alone have included Mosul and huge sections of northern Iraq, as it continues to bear down on its goal of taking Baghdad.
The current rise of the ISIL is a direct result of US meddling in the Middle East, and has its roots in the US/CIA orchestrated war in Syria and the long history of US/CIA involvement in the creating and funding of al-Qaeda in Afghanistan to fight the USSR and other terrorist formations throughout the Middle East and in particular in Syria, where the ISIL received huge amounts of US/UK/CIA funding and military support in the US’ failing attempt to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and the Syrian Government.
ISIL/US/CIA involvement was also instrumental in overthrowing the government in Libya and the murder of its leader Muammar Gaddafi. The ISIL has grown more and more powerful across the Middle East through US/CIA/UK funding from powerful Sunni interests, secular Sunni factions in Iraq and the Middle East, anti-Shia forces across the region, by black market trade in Libyan oil, trade in narcotics and weapons and outright theft and murder.
The ISIL have been described as worse than wild animals and murderous lunatics, who justify their brutality by hiding behind perverted and mutated interpretations of Islam. Intelligence reports and testimony, related to the recent slaughter of 426 children, which the US tried to blame on the Government of Bashar al-Assad as a pretext to an invasion of Syria has been largely attributed to the ISIL and the brutal Islamist terrorist organizations and groups which it is allied to and serves as an umbrella for.
The rise of the ISIL into what is approaching to be the size of a state actor again is the result of decades of covert CIA/US collusion with Islamic terrorists groups, who the US/CIA ally with, in order to meet their geopolitical and other objectives in the region and in many cases worldwide, including on and after 9-11-2001.
The CIA may have begun by thinking they controlled their secret Islamist armies, but the ISIL and other al-Qaeda groups decided that they deserve their own state and territory, and have become a force unto themselves, underlining the core failure and complete myopic vision of US foreign policy, which allies with, supports, funds, arms and trains any violent group regardless of ideology if it can help achieve geopolitical and military objectives.
In Libya US/NATO, in effect provided air-support for its secret Islamic armies on the ground and attempted to do the same in Syria.
ISIL and OUN/Svoboda: The Shared Roots of Murderous Hate
The scenario in Ukraine is the same as the one the US has used in South and Central America, in certain Asian countries and in the Middle East. There is no difference, except for the names and the particular groups. The result will also be the same if there is not a concerted effort by the international community to bring the nazi junta to justice in Ukraine and end their rise to power before they spread across Europe and destabilizes the entire continent.
As I have repeatedly said in the past, it has been long overdue for the real international community to put an end to US meddling worldwide and stop the imperial hegemony from destroying countries at will, and removing governments and leaders under the false and overused pretext of spreading "democracy", which is simply a code-word meaning "subservient to the US".
It is almost beyond belief that in 2014 the US/CIA/NATO/EU have enabled and unleashed nazis in Europe, who are today engaged in a war against their own people, but that is the reality, and the formula is the same as in Iraq and the Middle East, even down to who is profiting. From Greystone/Blackwater to Chevron/Exxon, from the neoconservative geopolitical architects behind the scenes to the Soros/USAID societal manipulators and, finally, to the war profiteers and the Pentagon/NATO dinosaurs. All of the players are the same as are their charges.
With the fall of Mosul to Islamic terrorists Europe and the world should now be raising the alarm at the fall of Kiev to nazi terrorists. Instead the pliable consumers of western media propaganda and lies, "zombified" and brain-washed into believing in their own exceptionalism and the “nobility” of their leaders, have been falsely led like a pack of sheep to slaughter into believing that somehow Russia is to blame, and its President Vladimir Putin (one of the few world leaders who dares to follow and independent foreign policy) is somehow guilty of aggression, even as Russians are being killed by the "nazi" junta and its forces in Ukraine.
No More US Credibility: Iranian/US Union?
The real possibility of military or other cooperation between Iran and the US, which has appeared recently, should be causing alarm bells to go off across the entire spectrum not least of all in Iran itself. From US soldiers, who are to make the ultimate sacrifice when they are called to, to politicians of every shade, to the US taxpayer who in the end has to pay for every adventure the US embarks on, screams should be heard after decades of propaganda, how the Islamic Republic of Iran must sanctioned, controlled and destroyed.
The fall of Mosul should have put the final nail into the coffin of US credibility and should have caused outrage among even the staunchest US allies, US veterans and the loved ones of soldiers, who honorably gave their lives in the heavy fighting in Mosul during the last US/Iraq war.
There is one loud voice who has spoken out, Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei accused the United States on Sunday of trying to retake control of Iraq, by exploiting sectarian rivalries reports Reuters.
The Same Geopolitical Architects
The US installed "leader" (holding the favored by the US rank of Prime Minister) in Iraq, al-Maliki, was basically told by US Secretary of State John "we know" Kerry on Monday to change the government to one more pliable, underlining the role the US has abrogated to itself of interfering everywhere and anywhere it pleases.
Another ridiculous exhibition of mindless hypocrisy that much of the western media has carried out without so much as blinking an eye has been the stream of discredited Neocons responsible for the historic disaster and illegal invasion of a sovereign country based on lies that have been rolled as at experts and commentators on the current disaster taking place in Iraq.
The likes of Dick "puncture an eye" Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz and William Kristol, men, who should have been relegated to comfortable white padded rooms long ago, have all made appearances as of late to comment on the country they destroyed as if they are experts and their opinions matter.
If things continue as they have, and the failed US foreign policy architects seem to perpetually repeat themselves, then in several years we should have huge swatches of Europe being taken over by “nazi” formations and Victoria Nuland be rolled out to ask her opinion as another European capitol falls to nazi terrorists. Is this a future we want? I hope, not.
Other Failed "Democracy" Projects
The following is a list of countries where the US has organized coup d’états, supported revolutions, overthrown governments, invaded, annexed, supported groups or forces, who overthrew or attempted to overthrow governments or outright executed the leaders, all done in the name of democracy and funded by the American taxpayer and illicit funding. In none of these countries did the lives of the citizenry improve after US “intervention”.
Afghanistan, Albania, Angola, Argentina, Bolivia, Bosnia, Brazil, Cambodia, Chile, China, Colombia, Congo, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Egypt, El Salvador, Germany, Greece, Grenada, Guam, Guatemala, Haiti, Hawaii, Honduras, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Korea, Kuwait, Laos, Lebanon, Liberia, Libya, Macedonia, Mexico, Nicaragua, Oman, Pakistan, Panama, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Russia, Samoa, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Turkey, Ukraine, Uruguay, USSR, Venezuela, Vietnam, Virgin Islands, Yemen, Yugoslavia and Zaire (Congo).
What they have done and are doing to Native Americans might also be added to the list as the continuing genocide of the indigenous peoples is the foundation of endemic “American” racism and exceptionalism.
