US, Israel Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Mendacity
Posted by Martin C. Fox on January 25, 2016
There ain’t nothin’ more powerful than the odor of mendacity-Big Daddy in Cat On A Hot Tin Roof.
As Philip Giraldi succinctly describes here, nothing is what it seems or as we are told when it comes to ISIS.
The Saudis and Gulf States prefer ISIS to anything Shia and support Al Qaida and ISIS in Iraq and Syria much as they did Al Qaida in the US in 2001.
NATO ‘partner’ Turkey prefers ISIS to Kurds with its open (to ISIS/Al Qaida) borders and it’s downing of a plane belonging to the most effective ISIS opponent Russia. The son of Turkey’s leader runs the ships that carry ISIS oil.
Israel has been treating Al Qaida casualties. Israel buys ISIS oil.
Why does the US refuse to confront our ‘friends’? Israel gets an automatic pass because they have bought most of congress. Bill Kristol, The Weekly Standard and neo-cons in general keep Israel’s wheels greased.
There is a theory that pitting all the Middle East factions against each other will eventually cause a total breakdown resulting in a multitude of small relatively powerless enclaves. All ripe for domination by a higher power. This is just the type of Israeli idea the CIA would gleefully glom on to, actually thinking something good will come of it. Envision a Cloward-Piven Strategy for the Middle East substituting arms for entitlements.
Mendacity permeates from every corner.
Be seeing you
