Every national peace group opposes Obama’s war against ISIS(L).

Every national peace group opposes Congress-sanctioned arming of “moderate” Syrian rebels = $500,000,000

FACT: ISIS leader al-Baghdadi was brutalized in Abu Ghraib

The anti-war movements uses irrefutable historical, political, economic and cultural analysis focused on the past thirteen years of bloody, wasteful, failed wars.

FAILED WARS = Afghanistan + Iraq + Libya + Pakistan + Yemen + Somalia

  • The anti-war movement advance positive agendas with “better choices”:
  • Diplomacy and Real humanitarian assistance
  • Improved relations with Iran
  • United Nations to halt the flow of financing and weapons to ISIS(L) from Oil Monarchs
  • UN-directed negotiations to end the civil war in Syria
  • Mobilize to solve REAL problems in the region—poverty, hunger, drought, joblessness.

What to Do About ISIS(L) – A randomized List:

  • Recognize US policy has become little more than a New Enemy Creation Process
  • USA cracks down on those financing ISIS(L) and removes them from Allies List
  • USA can crack down on the banks that store the loot
  • Recognize thirteen years of failed experience, pain, shame and waste
  • USA War on Terror spawned new offices that restrict funding to terrorist
  • Strong paper regulations forbidding banks to service terrorists/organized crime
  • Hit ISIS(L) economically – Cut all funding sources
  • Crack down on ISIS’s weapons supply — Stop shipping arms
  • Address political grievances of local populations

  • Reduce the Power of the Vested interest in the Terror-Industrial-Complex
  • Provide humanitarian aid
  • Target Turkish, Iraqi, and other oil dealers who purchase Black Mkt OIL
  • Close routes along 750 mile Turkey-Syria-Iraq = smuggling routes
  • Negotiate end to Turkey’s war against Kurds
  • Restrict ISIS’s Weapons and Ammo Supplies
  • Reduce flow of weapons and foreign fighters across Turkey’s border into Syria
  • Stop sending arms+tanks+armored personnel carriers as ISIS(L) gets them
  • NOTE: Mosul invasion – ISIS(L) picked up USA WAR TOOLS left by Iraqi Army
  • STOP Obama and bipartisans in Congress = Want Saudis to Train MORE KILLERS
  • Avoid completely the deployment of “boots on the ground”
  • Stop training Killers — Formerly “moderate” Syrian killers now fight for ISIS
  • Stop justifying any level of violence and collateral damage in service to policy
  • Attempt to heal the wounds inflicted on Syrian and Iraqi Sunnis
  • Recognize and End Policies that gather momentum + lose flexibility over time
  • Reduce the recruitment and flow of Westerners to ISIS(L)
  • END conflicts that fuel “ISIS(L)’s appeal = ISIS(L) thrives on conflicts
  • Remove those who see US bombs as problem solvers
  • Focus War on Terror-Industrial Complex on reforming foreign policy
  • End trying to Maximize generating enormous sums for contractors
  • Include Iran in peace talks
  • Increase US+West+Big Oil food, water, shelter, medical aid – millions of refugees
  • STOP repeating same mistakes USA has made for 13+ years
  • Stop ‘declared war’ on a smallish bunch of brutal criminals elevating their status
  • Stop making ISIS type-organizations the choice for aspiring jihadis
  • Choose diplomacy and humanitarian aid over war

Includes: 5-point program ”To Combat ISIS Without Bombs” — Win Without War (WWW)

WHY DOES USA NOT DO ANY OF THIS?

USA spends $1.4 Trillion per year on War and Home Security – Motivates WARS

  • For USA Airstrikes are always the FIRST THING TO DO!
  • ARMING Mercenaries are the NEXT THING TO DO!
  • Structure of USA national security policy — institutions, practices and think tanks
  • USA Allied with Authoritarian/Dictatorial Regimes
  • Stop Repeating past mistakes over and over
  • USA ‘policy momentum’ = War is always the FIRST CHOICE
  • USA MULTINATIONAL Corporate Power — Super-Rich on Wars
  • USA and Foreign ideologies promote wars
  • USA officials worldviews promote wars
  • USA stepped right into the trap set for them by al Baghdadi
  • Politicians love funding Cruise missiles+boondoggle F-22+outdated Tanks
  • USA lack of genuine American democracy
  • Blinders restricts decision-makers’ options to war, and more war
  • All peace and negotiations run up against deep-grained US foreign policies
  • USA standard operating procedures
  • USA completely ignores non-military solutions

BUT Obama convinced UN Security Council to criminalize participation in armed jihad + John Kerry engineered replacement of Nouri al Maliki by Haidar al Abbadi.

ISIS(L) FUNDING SOURCES:

WASHINGTON POST = 2013 “…the tiny, oil-rich country had put as much as $3 BILLION into funding anti-regime Syrian rebels. Many people believe a good chunk of that money has made it into Islamic State hands.” = ISIS(L) = HIGH QUALITY MEDIA PRODUCTION BY COMPANY RUN BY EX-ISRAELI AGENT IN Washington, DC + Get Saudi Arabia and other Gulf oil sheikdoms to shut down the money funnel to ISIS(L)

  • Big Oil Monarchs provide the most funding of ISIS(L) and similar AQ groups
  • Individual citizens some part of Dictatorships fund ISIS(L)
  • STOP sales of Oil ISIS via Turkey — ISIS(L) self-financing
  • USA is #1 Petroleum Producer in World = Presidents end OIL MONARCH relations
  • ISIS(L) = Worth $3+ Billion from Big Oil Monarchs + whatever they steal and sell
  • ISIS(L) = Demands 10-20% of receipts from businesses in cities it controls
