Another Pentagram/CIA sponsored foreign policy operation that was a success but the patient died.

The price paid by the people of Mosul is incomprehensibly high. Read the rest of this entry »

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.

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

Posted by Martin C. Fox 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 »

ISIS, Ally of the Empire – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on June 13, 2017

When you get to the point where your actions are actually helping ISIS, whether intended or not, perhaps it’s time to stop. It’s past time for the US to abandon its dangerous and counterproductive Syria policy and just bring the troops home.
As long as Syria and Iran exist, countries that have not attacked US as SA has, helping ISIS is the point. That is US world class foreign policy.

White House: What Is Happening with Free Speech on Campus Is ‘Appalling’

Posted by Martin C. Fox on April 28, 2017

Can’t argue with the comment but who is in the photograph, Berkeley students or ISIS? Put a knife in their hands and it would be hard to tell the difference.

Imperial Murder in the Levant – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on March 13, 2017

https://lewrockwell.com/2017/03/eric-margolis/imperial-murder-levant/

Why Raqqa was not taken a year ago or more remains one of the war’s major mysteries.  As I’ve previously written, I suspect that the US and Saudi Arabia originally helped create and arm ISIS to be used against Syria’s government and Afghanistan’s Taliban movement.   The US has long pretended to fight ISIS but has barely done so in reality.

History shows it’s also easy to lie, flag-wave and bluster into war but awfully hard to get out.  Trump, whose main information sources appears to be Fox fake TV news, does yet seem to understand this verity.   He should have a good look at Afghanistan, America’s longest war, now in its 16th year of stalemate.   The Pentagon, heedless that Afghanistan is known as ‘the Graveyard of Empires,’ wants more troops.

Trump said he wanted US out. The CIA and the Pentagon along with Fox News seem to be perveyors of Fake News. Trump is buying their baloney.

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.

The Reason To Fear Russia

Posted by Martin C. Fox 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.
