Iraq, Eqypt, Libya, Ukraine, ISIS and Boko Haram – There Seems To Be A Pattern
Posted by Martin C. Fox on June 12, 2014
Prior to 2001 and sanctions Iraq may not have been the greatest place to live but there was relative peace and women were allowed to get an education and were treated fairly well (women are third class citizens in Saudi Arabia home to our “friends” that bankrolled 9/11). There was no Al Qaida like there were no WMDs. The US liberated and democratized Iraq by bombing it to splinters and killing a million innocent civilians. Not to mention the loss of thousands of US soldiers. Now hundreds of thousands flee in fear of being overrun by so-called Al Qaida faction ISIS.
The result: Total hate for the US.
Afghanistan had the Taliban but few Al Qaida. But we were entrenched fighting a Taliban that never attacked the US. Thanks to US, a regional “terror” group escalated in power. Al Qaida grew too, big enough that the world’s policeman had to bribe to them not attack its truck convoys. Like those before us, Afghanistan was our graveyard. Not mention is a sinkhole for hundreds of millions worth of shrink-wrapped pallets of US dollars.
We threw Eqypt’s Hosne Mubarak under the camel resulting in a Muslim brotherhood takeover opening the door for a military coup. I am sure that was all part of Hillary and Joe’s master plan.
The CIA via their front group, the state department, sent Libyan weapons to Al Qaida insurgents in Syria. Many ended up elsewhere. Mali for instance, which is a mess and Nigeria where a half assed, unknown local group, Boko Haram, is enabled to the extent it can create havoc on a world wide scale. Muammar Gadaffi wielded power and kept things down to a dull roar. We solved that problem by killing him.
The regime thinks whenever the strong man is toppled our elite state department and military minds can handle the recoil. They are in a state of perpetual concussion.
The blowback in Iraq, Eqypt, Mali and Nigeria is a direct result of US interference.
We bankroll the overthrow of the Ukrainian government, chastise the Russians for protecting their own turf and send Russia into the waiting arms of the Chinese. (There are those that think the warparty is willing to risk nuclear war to subdue Russia and China for control of the resources in Asia and Middle East. McCain and Graham are probably up for that).
Where we liberate and democratize, the poor bastards always end up in ten times worse shape.
There was an old movie where a bankrupt country wanted to declare war on the US and lose so the US could rebuild it. It doesn’t work like that anymore.
Many of these hot spots are what reporter Eric Margolis calls Frankencountries. Arbitrary lines in the sand designed to benefit the winners of WW I. The Middle East and Africa are not composed of countries but tribes. Forced to live within cobbled together boundaries, most have been forced to live cheek by jowl with tribes they have been historically at war. Nationalism/tribalism is on the rise. Russian (Eastern) Ukraine does not want to be married to European (Western) Ukraine. I am sure John Kerry’s efforts to stop the divorce will result in much physical cruelty.
The answer is to stay the hell out of other people’s business. Dissolve NATO, an obsolete organization looking for a reason to exist. Close foreign bases and bring the troops home.
The warparty is currently in control. They aren’t going anywhere because, like the has-been gangster Rocco in Key Largo, they want “more”.
We need “less”. The path is here.
Be seeing you
