The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity : President Starts a War? Congress Yawns. Threatens to End One? Condemnation!

Posted by M. C. on February 12, 2019

Al-Qaeda and ISIS did not emerge in Iraq because US troops left the country – they emerged because the US was in the country in the first place. Where was al-Qaeda in Iraq before the 2003 US invasion the neocons lied us into? There weren’t any.

Last week’s bipartisan Senate vote to rebuke President Trump for his decision to remove troops from Syria and Afghanistan unfortunately tells us a lot about what is wrong with Washington, DC. While the two parties loudly bicker about minor issues, when it comes to matters like endless wars overseas they enthusiastically join together. With few exceptions, Republicans and Democrats lined up to admonish the president for even suggesting that it’s time for US troops to come home from Afghanistan and Syria.

The amendment, proposed by the Senate Majority Leader and passed overwhelmingly by both parties, warns that a “precipitous withdrawal of United States forces from the on-going fight…in Syria and Afghanistan, could allow terrorists to regroup.” As one opponent of the amendment correctly pointed out, a withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan is hardly “precipitous” since they’ve been there for nearly 18 years! And with al-Qaeda and ISIS largely defeated in Syria a withdrawal from that country would hardly be “precipitous” after almost five years of unauthorized US military action.

US arms sold to Saudi Arabia and UAE end up in wrong hands

Posted by M. C. on February 6, 2019

This not new news. More recently Hillary’s state department Libyan regime change, a dead state department employee and funneling Libyan weapons that ended up in Boko Haram’s hands.

Saudi Arabia and its coalition partners have transferred American-made weapons to al Qaeda-linked fighters, hardline Salafi militias, and other factions waging war in Yemen, in violation of their agreements with the United States, a CNN investigation has found.

The weapons have also made their way into the hands of Iranian-backed rebels battling the coalition for control of the country, exposing some of America’s sensitive military technology to Tehran and potentially endangering the lives of US troops in other conflict zones.

Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, its main partner in the war, have used the US-manufactured weapons as a form of currency to buy the loyalties of militias or tribes, bolster chosen armed actors, and influence the complex political landscape, according to local commanders on the ground and analysts who spoke to CNN.

By handing off this military equipment to third parties, the Saudi-led coalition is breaking the terms of its arms sales with the US, according to the Department of Defense. After CNN presented its findings, a US defense official confirmed there was an ongoing investigation into the issue.

The revelations raise fresh questions about whether the US has lost control over a key ally presiding over one of the most horrific wars of the past decade, and whether Saudi Arabia is responsible enough to be allowed to continue buying the sophisticated arms and fighting hardware.  Previous CNN investigations established that US-made weapons were used in a series of deadly Saudi coalition attacks that killed dozens of civilians, many of them children.

The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity : Why Are We Siding With al-Qaeda?

Posted by M. C. on September 11, 2018

http://ronpaulinstitute.org/archives/featured-articles/2018/september/10/why-are-we-siding-with-al-qaeda/

written by ron paul

Last week, I urged the Secretary of State and National Security Advisor to stop protecting al-Qaeda in Syria by demanding that the Syrian government leave Idlib under al-Qaeda control. While it may seem hard to believe that the US government is helping al-Qaeda in Syria, it’s not as strange as it may seem: our interventionist foreign policy increasingly requires Washington to partner up with “bad guys” in pursuit of its dangerous and aggressive foreign policy goals.

Does the Trump Administration actually support al-Qaeda and ISIS? Of course not. But the “experts” who run Trump’s foreign policy have determined that a de facto alliance with these two extremist groups is for the time being necessary to facilitate the more long-term goals in the Middle East. And what are those goals? Regime change for Iran.

Let’s have a look at the areas where the US is turning a blind eye to al-Qaeda and ISIS. Read the rest of this entry »

Pentagon Trained Syria’s Al Qaeda “Rebels” in the Use of Chemical Weapons | Global Research – Centre for Research on Globalization

Posted by M. C. on November 20, 2017

So are all those Seymour Hersh articles about gas attack false flags, dutifully ignored by MSM presstitutes, true?  London Review of Books articles because no one else would touch them! My Oh My!

https://www.globalresearch.ca/pentagon-trained-syrias-al-qaeda-rebels-in-the-use-of-chemical-weapons/5583784

This article was first published in April 2017 following the accusations directed against the Syrian government of using chemical weapons against its own people.

The issue is now once more before the UN Security Council. Read carefully.

The Western media refute their  own lies.

Not only do they confirm that the Pentagon has been training the terrorists in the use of chemical weapons, they also acknowledge the existence of a not so secret “US-backed plan to launch a chemical weapon attack on Syria and blame it on Assad’s regime”  Read the rest of this entry »

PUTIN REVEALS 40 COUNTRIES THAT ARE FUNDING ISIS AT THE G20 SUMMIT

Posted by M. C. on September 17, 2017

Like Boko Haram that suddenly appeared after the US state department started funneling arms throught Libya to ‘freedom fighters’, ISIS appears after the US sends ‘non-lethal’ aid to the Syrian free army. The Ben Swann video below is worth watching.

Like Edward Snowden, Putin speaks then truth. it is no wonder the neocon empire builders want him to disappear too.

http://www.collective-evolution.com/2015/11/16/breaking-putin-reveals-4o-countries-that-are-funding-isis-at-the-g20-summit/

“The statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception.”

 Mark Twain (source)

On more than one occasion, Russian President Vladmir Putin has shared information that Western media won’t air. Two months ago he revealed that ISIS is funded by the West (you can watch that video here), and now he is making more noise at the G20 summit that’s currently taking place in Turkey, where he has supposedly shared intelligence data on Islamic State financing with his G20 colleagues.

Edward Snowden Just Retweeted About The CIA Being In “Cahoots With Al-Qaeda” One Day After 9/11 Anniversary – Collective Evolution

Posted by M. C. on September 17, 2017

Once Edward Snowden exposes the lying liars and their lies. No wonder they want him dead.

http://www.collective-evolution.com/2017/09/15/edward-snowden-just-retweeted-about-the-cia-being-in-cahoots-with-al-qaeda-one-day-after-911-anniversary/

Below is a the retweet from Snowden, where Dr. Max Abrahms, an assistant professor of political science and public policy at Northeastern University who specializes in international security, especially terrorism, posits the connection between the CIA and al-Qaeda.

McMullin responds by ridiculing the assertion, which should raise immediate red flags. Read the rest of this entry »

Dirty Open Secret: US Created and Supports ISIS | Global Research – Centre for Research on Globalization

Posted by M. C. on June 18, 2017

http://www.globalresearch.ca/dirty-open-secret-us-created-and-supports-isis/5594486

US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) documents prove it – obtained by Judicial Watch through an FOIA lawsuit. 

They show ISIS, al-Qaeda and like-minded terrorist groups are the “major forces” used as US foot soldiers in Syria, Iraq and elsewhere. 

The myth of so-called “moderate rebels” was long ago discredited. Yet claiming they exist persists. 

The DIA documents show America, NATO, Saudi Arabia and other regional rogue states support an Islamic caliphate to challenge, topple and replace Bashar al-Assad with an imperial puppet. 

In a January 2016 Iran Review article, James Fetzer discussed evidence of ISIS’ creation by America.  Read the rest of this entry »

The Reason To Fear Russia

Posted by M. C. on January 19, 2017

Russia invaded Afghanistan in 1979 and left after 9 years, realizing it was a no-win situation.   The US invaded the ‘graveyard of empires’ in 2001. Sixteen years later there are no signs of leaving.

Russia fights Al Qaeda and helps their ally, Syria, fight ISIS. Syria is in Russia’s neighborhood.  Al Qaeda attacked the US. Saudi Arabia financed the operation. ISIS has sworn to destroy the U.S.     The US supports Al Qaeda and ISIS in overthrowing the main stabilizing force in the Middle East, Syria. The US pays Saudi Arabia to do the same.
