Why Are We Attacking Syrians Who Are Fighting ISIS? – Collective Evolution

Posted by Martin C. Fox on June 19, 2017

http://www.collective-evolution.com/2017/06/15/why-are-we-attacking-syrians-who-are-fighting-isis/

What is this really all about? Why does the US military occupy this base inside Syria? It’s partly about preventing the Syrians and Iraqis from working together to fight ISIS, but I think it’s mostly about Iran. If the Syrians and Iraqis join up to fight ISIS with the help of Iranian-allied Shia militia, the US believes it will strengthen Iran’s hand in the region. President Trump has recently returned from a trip to Saudi Arabia where he swore he would not allow that to happen.

But is this policy really in our interest, or are we just doing the bidding of our Middle East “allies,” who seem desperate for war with Iran? Saudi Arabia exports its radical form of Islam worldwide, including recently into moderate Asian Muslim countries like Indonesia. Iran does not.

The US supports ISIS, Syria doesn’t. 

ISIS fights Iraq, Iran and others that never attacked the US. The US supports ISIS, Saudi Arabia, Al Qaeda and Israel who have all attacked the US.

The foreign policy your taxes enable.

 It makes sense in Washington.

US Military Sent over $1 Billion Worth of Light Weapons To “Multiple Armed Groups” in Iraq | Global Research – Centre for Research on Globalization

Posted by Martin C. Fox on June 5, 2017

http://www.globalresearch.ca/us-military-sent-over-1-billion-worth-of-light-weapons-to-multiple-armed-groups-in-iraq/5592502

Amply documented, the US and its allies are supplying weapons, training and military equipment to numerous Al Qaeda affiliated rebels (including ISIS) acting on behalf of their State sponsors.

According to Amnesty, the sending of weapons to multiple rebel groups is justified. The killing of civilians is not an issue. The failures of the US Army outlined in the DoD report pertain to errors in monitoring, delivery, record-keeping and human error: Read the rest of this entry »

Terrorism Is Not a Forest Fire – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 25, 2017

https://lewrockwell.com/2017/05/jack-perry/terrorism-not-forest-fire/

The West still seems at a loss to understand why this is happening. Well, guys, here’s why: You need to get out of the Middle East and stay out. It really is that simple. And you guys have been told that repeatedly for decades. But the real reason Western governments refuse to listen is because they’re pretty much safe against suffering the consequences of Western government Middle East meddling. It’s the public that pays the price, not the politicians.
The public pays in civilian and military lives and taxes used to support the military and the bankster profiteers. Read the rest of this entry »

Mattis: US Troops Need to Stay in Iraq for ‘Years’ — News from Antiwar.com

Posted by Martin C. Fox on March 26, 2017

http://news.antiwar.com/2017/03/24/mattis-us-troops-need-to-stay-in-iraq-for-years/

I have a solution for the US war in Iraq. Stop funding Saudi Arabia, Al Qaeda and Israel. Get the hell out.

Alternatively jump in the TARDIS and go back to 1947 or there abouts, before the CIA, and make the Dulles brothers become philatelists.

How long can supposedly intelligent people rationalize beating this long dead horse? How long will the sheeple tolerate it.

Shucks, I just remember why we are still there. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$

President Trump: What Happened To Your Promise To Get Us Out These Messes, Close Bases And Bring Our Troops Home?

Congress Needs to Stop Trump’s Escalation of the War on Syria

 On March 9, The New York Times reported that the United States is sending 400 troops to Syria to bolster the small number of American troops that are already on the ground there. A week later, March 15, The Washington Post reported that the Pentagon has drawn up plans to send a 1,000 more troops within the coming weeks. Meanwhile, in anticipation of the coming (and perhaps final) stages of the operation against the Islamic State, the administration has decided to send “an additional 2,500 ground combat troops to a staging base in Kuwait from which they could be called upon to back up coalition forces battling the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.”

Candidate Trump, where did you go?

The Secret Iraq Dossier

Posted by Martin C. Fox on March 8, 2017

http://www.smh.com.au/interactive/2017/iraq-dossier/

AU is still playing at “I want to be your friend” by allowing US marines to base in Oz just to antagonize China. Which means they are the focus of a possible attack. I thought tough Aussies had more self worth than to roll over for Uncle Sam. I am hoping what the govt does is not a reflection of the population.

I suppose we will have to, as usual, wait for Seymour Hersh to come out with the real story which will be totally ignored by the MSM.

The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity : Trump’s ISIS Plan: Another US Invasion?

Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 21, 2017

http://ronpaulinstitute.org/archives/featured-articles/2017/february/20/trump-s-isis-plan-another-us-invasion/

As we approach the president’s deadline it looks like the military is going to present Trump with a plan to do a whole lot more of what we’ve been doing and somehow expect different results. Proving the old saying that when all you have is a hammer everything looks like a nail, we are hearing increasing reports that the military will recommend sending thousands of US troops into Syria and Iraq.

Is Hillary Wiped?

Posted by Martin C. Fox on September 9, 2016

The Hillary situation is beyond ridiculous.

Her neocon foreign policy and influence starting in during Bill’s regime has resulted in a world of disaster. Hundreds of thousands dead and millions displaced. W and O have done their share also but peaceful discourse is not Killary’s forte. Ask any Christians left alive in Kosovo, Libya, Iraq etc. How can anyone take the MSM and their Hillarious coverage of her legacy seriously?

Remember when courageous Hillary as first lady, her daughter and a fat comedian dodged bullets after landing in a firefight at a Bosnian airport?

Coughing fits and the returning mystery man with the Epipen looking device. “Bones” with a TriOx pen! Beam her up. Read the rest of this entry »

Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Palestine, Libya-Going In Circles

Posted by Martin C. Fox on February 13, 2016

Spanish born philosopher Santayana said those who ignorant of history are bound to repeat it. He also said only the dead have seen the end of war.

There was a predominate superpower hell-bent for world hegemony via compliant puppet governments. Military bases and an all powerful navy were spread throughout the world. Control of the Middle East was crucial. This superpower played allies and enemies against each other to further it’s agenda. Promises were repeatedly made and broken. Western powers all wanted a piece of the Middle East action.

The Middle East was made up of numerous tribes and sects, each of which had their own particular needs and goals. Many of these groups were at odds with their neighbors and religious variants.

This superpower was unable to recognize these rivalries let alone deal with them. The overall situation was incredibly complex. The superpower did not let ignorance hinder its efforts. Read the rest of this entry »
