ISIS(L) = USED BY ALL TO GET SOMETHING = MODERN DAY MURDERING PIRATES
ISIS(L) leader response to Obama = “threat of the Islamic State…you will discover…there is no cure…. So mobilize your forces…strike, kill, and destroy us…You will be defeated.”
“Everyone it seems, is seeking to use ISIS for its own ends.” by Alastair Crooke, Fmr. MI-6 agent; Sept 24, 2014 — Author of ‘Resistance: The Essence of Islamic Revolution’
ISIS(L) = UNIVERSAL TOOL FOR ALL ALL SIDES
BIG OIL MONARCHS = “have characterized the ISIS threat as an ‘existential’ one”
BIG OIL MONARCHS = Primarily sees ISIS(L) NOT AS TERRORISTS but as “a necessary instrument to confront the Islamic Republic of Iran…especially in the war in Syria” = Hence their tepid “dive” into this new “war”
BIG OIL MONARCHS = NOT ONE BOMB DROPPED = Despite 4 Saudi F-16 fighter jets + 4 UAE warplanes + 2 Bahrain aircraft + 1 Qatar Mirage jet = NO “ACTIVE PART” in the attack
BIG OIL MONARCHS = Leverage the “war” against Assad, Russia, and Iran
Russia + IRAN = Want Obama to leverage the “war” precisely (and only) at ISIS in Syria and Iraq.
Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov = Encouraged U.S. air attacks Exclusively targeting ISIS in Syria. = NOT Assad GOV!
Obama = Threatened to take out Syria’s air defense system in retaliation if Syria defends against U.S. aircraft
Russia = Threatened in response to damaging Syrian defense system = Escalate weapons supplies to Syrian government to defend itself against U.S. air attack
Russia = Would likely supply Syria with Russian “Sumoum” ships specialized in air defense
Russia + Iran = Will cooperate with USA in Syria = Only on specific agreed targets and the guarantee USA will not create “safe havens” for Anti-Assad opposition.
Obama USA = Awkwardly are stuck between Saudi Arabia’s DEMAND TO TOPPLE ASSAD and his PIPELINE to Europe VERSUS Iranian-Russian conditions to indirectly strengthen President Assad while TICKING OFF so-called “moderate” Syrian insurgents.
Obama USA = Following BIG OIL MONARCHS goal of attacking Assad = Russia, Iran, and Hezbollah will escalate combat greatly complicating the war on ISIS(L)
Turkey = Uses ISIS(L), their friends, to undermine the Syrian Kurdish semi-autonomous region that lies adjacent to Turkey’s own restless (and far from autonomous) Kurds. = To Avoid a Kurdish state taking part of Turkey.
Turkey = Uses ISIS(L) to attack the Kurds near the Syria-Turkish border and Turkey is preventing Kurds from crossing the Syrian border to fight ISIS(L).
ISIS(L) = Wants ISIS(L) to seizure neighboring Kurdish territory directly connected to Turkey’s border = A “logistics corridor” for Turkey.
Turkey’s Erdogan = Has continuously supplied ISIS(L) from day one to bring down Assad’s GOV.
Turkey’s Erdogan = the outset of its involvement in Syria, with a Turkish platform by which it might bring down the Syrian state. It may be that the Turkish president now foresees the “war” opening new, bigger opportunities for Turkey.
Turkey’s Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu’s Goal = Destroy both Syria and Iraq’s political structures = Sweep away 1916 World War I agreement (Sykes-Picot) = UK + France + Russia breakup of Ottoman Empire = Reunite Turkey + Syria + Iraq + Lebanon + Palestine
Turkey short term Goal = Maintaining good relations with all sides = Ba’athists + some Kurds + Sunni tribal leaders + ISIS(L) — Prisoner swap = Turkey mediates the future of the Sunni dominated upper Euphrates valley
Turkey’s Erdogan = Becomes the “Emir” over a large swathe of Sunni Islam = Turkey + Syria + Iraq.
Israel’s Goal = Has been facilitating the ANTI-ASSAD insurgents adjacent to the Golan border + Recent downed a Syrian warplane = Help USA create a no-fly zone in Southern Syria. + Attacks on ISIS(L) infiltration. = Goal Israel is folded into war on the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.
Obama Challenges = Needs Russia’s Putin’s + Iran’s cooperation to manage a critically unstable Middle East — But any visible Russian cooperation guarantees GOP HAWK HOWELS and CRITICISM leading-up to congressional midterm elections. = MORE McCain and Graham absurdity carrying the AIPAC-Wall Street-MIC banners.
McCain+Graham + PNAC NEOCON HAWKS + AIPAC-Wall Street-MIC = Use ISIS(L) to SAVE PETRODOLLARS BY KNOCKING OFF SYRIA + IRAN + RUSSIA and their NEW OIL MARKET(S) AND NEW CURRENCY with the other BRICS Countries = They want to PROTECT THE CENTURIES OLD BANKSTER SCAMS and the PETRODOLLARS SAUDI ARABIAN (“TERRORISTS”) CONNECTION!
NEOCON USA & ISRAELI HAWKS = Leverage the ISIS(L) “war” in Syria to humiliate and discredit Putin and Russia in Ukraine and hurt his Putin’s popularity at home in Russia.
Putin’s Goal = Leverage ISIS(L) to revive the channel of communication to USA and Obama to de-escalate tensions with Washington more generally.
Iran + Russia = Created a functioning Baghdad-Damascus direct communications to coordinate the war — Sharing Intelligence
Obama = Need Russia’s Putin and Iranian cooperation to manage this WAR
Obama’s Complexities = Coordinating but not wishing to be seen coordinating with either Russia, or Iran — let alone Damascus! = Kerry, “we do not coordinate”
Western-backed Syrian rebels = Are howling that they have been discredited by America’s attacks in Syria = AQ Nusra “says that those who deal with the West become part of the West” = “They (Syrian so-called Moderates) are accusing us of being traitors.”
Sunnis of Anbar, Saladin, Nineveh, and Kurds are using ISIS(L) to pressure Baghdad into giving them concessions.
BIG OIL MONARCHS use the “war” to muster support for a war on the Muslim Brotherhood. = Expulsions of MB figures from Qatar.
SAUDI King Abdullah = Using ISIS(L) to REDUCE Wahhabi Clerics EXTREMISTS doing revivals amongst the population. Perhaps only Public Relations as Wahabists protect the King’s Dictatorship.
Obama = May believe that in launching spectacular air attacks/Graphic PR helps his party win in 2014.
Obama = But the fact is ISIS(L) is using him and King Abdullah and others = ,
ISIS(L) = Using BIG OIL MONARCHS’ $BILLIONS + Western Funding Created out of decaying AQ Contract Murderers a TOOL to use for PROFIT AND OIL AND DOMINATION.
ISIS(L) = Its orchestrated beheadings with VIDEOS AND WEBSITE matching MADISON AVENUE-Al Jazeera SLICKNESS = All made with deliberated intentions.
ISIS(L) = Narration by first one, and now a second, British accented person was not done without regard to its affect. = ISIS(L) leader response to Obama = “threat of the Islamic State…you will discover…there is no cure…. So mobilize your forces…strike, kill, and destroy us…You will be defeated.” SUCH PLANNED SLICKNESS YELLS WELL-FOUNDED THINK TANK LEVEL PLOTS AND PLANS!
ISIS(L) = THINK TANK RUN = Precise map of ISIS(L)-intended conquest of territory with its oil wells all carefully marked out = Dates back to 2006.
ISIS(L) = THINK TANK RUN = Strategy for taking Mosul was 2+ years in incubation
ISIS(L) = THINK TANK RUN = Evolved directly from AQ Zarqawi’s movement + Al-Nusra AQ
ISIS(L) = THINK TANK RUN = Lebanese journalist, Radwan Mortada notes: Based on the Hadith (sayings of the Prophet), that “the Hour (of Resurrection) will not come until the Byzantines land in al-Amaq (valleys in Antioch, southern Turkey) or in Dabiq” (a Syrian village located to the north of Aleppo)”
ISIS(L) = THINK TANK RUN = Radwan Mortada writes: Convinced that “a great battle is going to take” place with the “Crusader West.” They conclude this confrontation will begin with a U.S. strike(s). “For them, ‘it is an inevitable divine promise that will prove to the world that we are the masters of the State and builders of the end of time Caliphate.’
ISIS(L) = THINK TANK RUN = Prophecy is the English-language magazine they began issuing months ago called Dabiq … The Return of Khilafah (Caliphate) … some argue that ‘the Crusader alliance will be lured into a ground battle because it will definitely not achieve its goals from the air.'”
ISIS(L) = THINK TANK RUN = ISIS(L) reflects the lessons of Israel’s war on Hezbollah in 2006 — Israel’s air assault completely failed to destroy Hezbollah (which had prepared for it) — but it was the movement’s continued and subsequent ability to mount military actions that forced Israel to put boots on the ground — and where it suffered its defeat.
ISIS(L) = THINK TANK RUN = WEST’S deep inconsistency and ultimate failure = West’s allies of choice = THE BIG OIL MONARCHS who created ISIS(L) will not, and cannot, be true ‘partners’ to this ‘war.’ = Far too tainted with their $3+ BILLIONS in funding and training of this same Wahabism use of Overwhelming Violence and Murders = Salafists ideology for too many decades.
AQ + other OFFSHOOTS = Rallying to ISIS(L) to face the “War of the Cross” waged against them = Western-backed rebels are becoming “traitors.” = Those who “deal with the West” (Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, UAE and Bahrain) are becoming “part of the West”
ISIS(L) = Attracts Wide Mobilization of populations with no “end game” that is sucking USA & Obama into ISIS(L)’s PROPHESY of Western air and then ground Attacks.
THE BIG OIL MONARCHS = Main reason this whole WESTERN enterprise WILL ultimate fail = OUR ALLIES OF CHOICE will not, and cannot, be true “partners” to this “war.” = They have sympathies and goals that include ISIS(L) and their Saudi-Wahhabi Salafist ideology for decades. + West has been complicit with SAUDI-PETRODOLLARS for so long = THEY CANNOT ABANDON its “compromised” allies + USA KNOWS BIG OIL MONARCHS will never put their own boots on the ground to fight the BABY they created.
ISIS(L) war = No troops in view = ISIS(L) has cleverly used us to fulfill their PROPHESY!
