Compares NATO to
slams US, Israel for 'creating
"We have helped create
Retd. Lt. Gen. Ian McInerny
On the ominous thirteenth anniversary of the 9/11 WTC false flag
terror attacks that set the stage for a perpetual state of warfare,
terror and chaos,
Obama once again is set to launch another series
ISIS provides the perfect raison
d'etre for the re-intervention of the US-NATO occupation forces
in Iraq, Syria and the Middle-East region.
Every war against terror only leads to even more wars and more
terror. Countries such as Iraq and Syria, which had no presence of
the Al Qaeda, but after US-NATO interventions, these very terror
organizations have taken root.
Far worse and fanatical organizations
such as the ISIS have now grown into veritable armies with modern
advanced weaponry and thousands of foot-soldiers swarming towards
the "hornets nest".
In our estimation the spread of terror is directly linked to certain
imperialist powers and collaborator governments, that fund,
mobilize, train, provide safe havens and weapons. These terror gangs
are then deployed to achieve their strategic objectives of global
hegemony and control over natural resources, namely Oil and Gas.
In terms of the rise of
the ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria)
the question that we must ask ourselves is that, is it possible for
a terrorist organization to grow as powerful as on view, without the
backing of certain nations and intelligence agencies?
This is precisely what we will seek to
Firstly there are 4 key regional and geopolitical reasons due to
which we witness a global crisis all the way from the Middle East to
Eastern Europe to the borders of Russia.
In the year 2007 large Oil and
Gas finds were discovered in the Eastern Mediterranean
region, mainly to enrich the countries namely Syria,
Lebanon, Palestine, Israel and Cyprus. The volume of Gas
finds for both Iran and Qatar also showed increased
The battle over the competition
and control of the Pipeline routes between, namely the
Iran-Iraq-Syria Pipeline and the Qatari pipeline, that
needed access via Syria to reach the Mediterranean coastline
as both pipelines went on via Turkey into Europe.
If Russia and Iran were to have
sovereign control over their Oil-Gas resources which they
transported via their pipelines, then Russia and Iran would
effectively control up to 50% of Gas exports to Europe.
Thereby creating a greater energy, financial and market
integration between the European nations, Russia and Iran
and thus challenging the hegemony of the USA.
Russia is building the South-Stream
pipeline to circumvent the Ukranian quagmire.
Russia has effectively
countered the Western backed
US-Saudi-Israel axis: Also in
the aftermath of the Israeli defeat at the hands of the
Hezbollah led Lebanese resistance in 2006, the strategic
calculus began to shift drastically, with a redirection of
US policy in the region.
This hinged on countering the
rise of the axis of the Resistance, also referred to as the
Shiite Bloc, namely Iran, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and all the
way into Palestine.
With a drastic sectarian Sunni-Shiite
civil war already in the offing in Iraq, the Saudis, Israel
and the US began to operate with multiple common strategic
The Imperial-Zionist Israeli agenda was
to essentially foment religious, sectarian and ethnic divisions and
civil wars, leading to the partition and balkanization of those
nations, into smaller warring stateless, to be then controlled by an
all powerful Israel.
This strategy appears in three
The Oded Yinon plan of 1982.

securing the realm, authored by Benjamin Netanyahu and other
The Project for the New American
Post 9/11, we then had the revelation by
General Wesley Clark that
the Neoconservative Lobby had plans to
target '7' countries in '5' years, namely Iraq, Libya, Somalia,
Syria, Lebanon, Sudan and ending with Iran.
The ideological and strategic alliance evolved during
regime when in 2007 a new doctrine, referred to as the "Redirection"
It openly advocated targeting Iran,
tilting the balance of power away from the Shiite Bloc that the war
on Iraq had disturbed, widening the Sunni-Shia split, for a close
alliance between US, Saudi Arabia and Israel.
The current crisis that we are witness to, unfolded in Libya in
early 2011, where now an advanced 'welfare state' has been reduced
to a warring "Failed State" - due to rampaging US-NATO forces who
armed the most fanatical elements amongst the Islamists, including
the al Qaeda.
Thus there were Iraqi fighters who fought in Libya,
amongst myriad others.
The heavy weapons from the Libyan war theatre were transported to
Southern Turkey and smuggled across the Syrian border to be supplied
to the Free Syrian Army (FSA),
Jabhat al Nusra (Al Qaeda of Syria)
and other not so moderate rebels...
The entire concocted narrative of "Moderate Rebels" is an utter lie,
if not a poor figment of Obama's skewed imagination.
On the ground the FSA, Nusra, as
well as the ISIS, function together and are interchangeable.
The FSA Commander Jamal Mahrouf (April 2014) stated that FSA
and Nusra worked together.
In June 2014, for all practical
purposes the Jabhat al Nusra (al Qaeda of Syria) and the
ISIS had merged together.
The jihadist network created by
the CIA, Saudi Intel since 1979, has now expanded to an
extent where now foreign Jihadists militants, mercenaries,
terrorists are mobilized from across 80 countries and
include even those from many of the key Western-NATO
countries, such as the USA, Britain, France, Belgium,
Australia amongst others.
Clearly the US has played a key
role in creating ISIS, which has been accepted by Retd. Lt.
Gen. Ian McInerny.
And yet SeNATOr John Mcain has
been photographed openly hobnobbing with the the latest
version of Bin Laden, al-Bakr al Baghdadi 2.0.
Haaretz (Feb 2014): Reported
that the US, Saudi, Jordan and Israel were all in the
process of helping the Syrian rebels plan an attack on
Southern Syria. Israel has also provided direct assistance
in military operations.
Then PBS (May 2014) carried a
report of rebels who were interviewed as stating that they
were trained in secret bases in Qatar.
Similar reports also exist of CIA
controlled training camps in Turkey. Israel too supports the ISIS,
Jabhat al Nusra, FSA and the other militant groups with camps and
field hospitals in the Golan Heights, in occupied Syria.
The role of US SeNATOr John McCain,
leader, Republican Party, only further proves the complicity of the
US junta at the highest levels.
According to the Report of the
Foreign Intelligence Services, NATO organized a meeting to
launch the Arab Spring in Libya and Syria. This meeting was
chaired by SeNATOr John McCain.
February 22, 2011:
McCain met Saad Hariri in Beirut
and gave him the responsibility to oversee weapons transfers
He visited Idlib secretly and
met up with the militants and terrorists of the FSA and
Nusra. Here we have photographs of McCain with Abu Bakr al
Baghdadi the self-declared Calipha. Even at this juncture,
there was a $10 million price on al-Baghdadi's head, and
McCain could be prosecuted for contact with a terrorist. A
month prior to this meeting, al Baghdadi had already created
The fact that the US regime is directly
funding the moderate rebels, the Free Syrian Army is a stated fact
of US policy.

The ISIS has been brutal in it's
massacres, especially targeting all those "Infidels and Kafirs" who
refused to convert to Islam, especially the Yezidis, Christians,
Shia's and even those Sunni's who refused to submit to their extreme
version of Islam.
Widespread massacre and ethnic cleansing of Christians and Yezidis
is the norm for the ISIS, as well as the Jabhat al Nusra, the Al
Qaeda of Syria.
The Saudi-Qatar-Turkish role:
Also reports state that the Qataris'
paid $2.5 million to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi to create the ISIS and
become the future Calipha.
After the major gas finds in 2007, the
Qatari's firstly tried to convince President Assad to abandon the
Iran-Iraq-Syria (IIS) pipeline and become a part of the Qatari
pipeline. Assad said that he would not betray his Russian friend and
Then according to Roland Dumas
(ex-French Foreign Minister) in 2009, Qatar paid $10 billion to the
Turkish Foreign Minister Mr. Dovutoglu, with a plan to destabilize
and overthrow the Assad Government.
It was also at this time his
British counterparts informed him that they were in the process of
sending armed fighters to Syria. (Christoff Lehmann)
Leaked emails from Pentagon reports revealed by Stratfor state that,
"joint US-UK training of Syrian
rebel forces since 2011 to bring about the collapse of the Assad
regime 'from within'."
It was after the Saudi failure in Syria
that more than 20,000 mercenaries were defeated by the army, that
the Saudis went on a worldwide hunt and mobilized jihadists from
across more than 80 countries.
Finally it was on the 10th of June 2014, that the world finally woke
up to the threat of ISIS, after the fall of Mosul.
The ISIS were out there boasting about
their tanks, anti-aircraft guns, anti-tank missiles, heavy
ammunition, Humvees, helicopters - all of which they captured from
the Iraqi army, which did not even put up a fight.
The Iraqi army that the US had been
training at great cost, collapsed along sectarian lines.

Not a single drone or
aerial attack by the American forces.

Strangely even though the ISIS were parading openly with all their
captured American weaponry, the US chose not to attack, which is
against standard US Military doctrine, that calls for captured
weapons to be destroyed so that they do not fall into the hands of
At that very time the US was conducting
drone strikes in Pakistan, but chose not to attack ISIS in Iraq.
So is Obama a weak President, or even a no-war peace loving man, who
only goes to war as the last option? That is certainly not the case.
Obama's strategy has been to wage war by proxy, whereby they foment
civil wars and strife, whilst deploying aerial attacks and drones,
even as myriad proxies groups fight the land war. This is evident across Libya, Somalia,
Iraq, Yemen, Lebanon and myriad other theatres of war.
Then another question we are frequently asked:
"Why after creating the ISIS, as you
say, is the US bombing its own creation?"
It's only a repeat of recent history.
The US enthroned Saddam in 1963, used
him against Iran and then destroyed him and similarly with the Al
Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan. Yet we tend to forget...
US SeNATOr Lindsey Graham warns of a coming 9/11 attack. Fear
Mongering to justify the wars in the Middle-East is part of the
The strategy is essentially to:
Build up a dictator or an
extremist group/s to be used to wage proxy wars against
opponents. During this phase, crimes committed by proxies
are swept under the carpet - Problem.
Then after the 'nasty bad guys'
have outlived their usefulness and served their purpose,
then it's time to pull the plug and demonize them for all
their barbarism. This works well when the public has no clue
as to where these 'nasty bad guys' come from the first place
Finally when the public finally
begs the government to do something, a solution is proposed.
This would usually mean military intervention couched in a
humanitarian framework. This also leads to the reduction of
freedoms in our nations and societies - Solution.
Thus the ISIS has proved invaluable to
the US-NATO strategic game-plan as there now exists a popular
support back home to neutralize the ISIS threat that supposedly
poses a threat to America.
Therefore ISIS has provided a perfect
alibi for the US-NATO forces to return back to the region as part of
its re-colonization program.
ISIS has also proved very useful in the Syrian theatre as today the
ISIS does control up to 30% of territory and provides the perfect
pretext for the US to invade Syria. The US-NATO allies could
possibly enforce a no-fly zone in the ISIS held areas, thus
preventing any role for the sovereign state and the Syrian Arab
As the ISIS retreats in the face of US
bombing, that very territory would be handed over to the FSA and
Jabhat al Nusra-Qaeda militants and mercenaries, surely with many
ISIS mercenaries morphing into moderate rebels.
Thus effectively partitioning Syria!
The Syrian government has stated that they will not bear the
violation of their sovereignty and Russia too has warned the US on
Entrap Russia: It was also in this very period that the
Russian-US-NATO crisis over Ukraine began to emerge as a serious
situation that could lead to a regional or a global war.
The steps to counter ISIS are as follows:
Work towards national political
solutions, power sharing, constitutional democratic reforms,
free and fair elections - to avoid civil wars, through
regional and international mediation, whilst limiting the
role of the US-EU and NATO institutions and military forces.
Stop the physical routes from
across the Turkish, Jordan and Lebanon into Syria.
Shut down all safe-havens and
camps active in Jordan, Qatar, Turkey and all other
Shut down all sources of funding
from Saudi, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Turkey and supply of
weapons from US, Britain, France and other Western sources.
Support the Governments battling
this terror plague with satellite and intelligence reports
so that the Army can perform better.
Stop media propaganda and hate
speech to stem the tide of publicity, hatred and fear.
Identify and prosecute all those
governments and private sources that are funding and arming
terrorists so that a precedent is set.
Thus the regional and the international
situation is indeed fraught with danger, even as the US-NATO forces
continue with their belligerence and war mongering.
There is a need for an international
alliance to counter the political, financial and military hegemony
of the Western Imperial-Zionist axis. There is also a dire need for
the popular resistance forces to counter the religious fanaticism
that is being foisted within our societies by anti-democratic
religious regressive obscurantist extremists who only weaken and
divide our common struggles.
These are the very elements that are
indoctrinated to fight the proxy wars.
There is thus a dire need for spiritual democracies to emerge as a
counter to illiberal and regressive religious fanatics - much in the
spirit of liberation theology.
Where religion is redeemed from fanatics
and texts interpreted with an all encompassing vision of love,
compassion, universalism, mutual-respect and equality - thus
liberating humanity from the religion and culture of fear, hatred
Already forces and alliances such as the Shanghai Cooperation
the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), and
the BRICS are emerging as viable challenges in the near
future, centered on Russia, China, India, Brazil and South Africa.
The South American Bolivarian nations
continue to successfully resist and build democratic socialist
models, empowering their citizens thus posing a challenge to the
neo-liberal capitalist framework.
This even as the valiant Palestinian resistance continues to stand
at the frontlines of the struggle for human emancipation and
liberty, thus inspiring generations across the world.
Finally it is for the people of the world to continue to march
against the wars and terror, to march for the unity of the oppressed
people and nations - and to march for the freedom, dignity and
self-respect of all human beings.
