تقارير: داعش الليبي يتكون من ثلاثة آلاف مقاتل من 31 دولة

(Reuters) – A report by the Algerian daily sunrise Wednesday, that Daash in Libya, based on the current success, to adopt the Iraqi scenario in its smallest details, taking advantage of the retreat of the state, in an attempt to repeat the experience in Libya and its environs after Iraq and Syria.

The newspaper said, citing identical reports, that the organization in Libya includes about three thousand gunmen descended from 31 different countries.

Occupies Tunisians and Egyptians in the ranks of the forefront of the multinational organization about equally thousand fighters, in front of Sudan and Morocco with 300 each, Algeria and Saudi Arabia, with 200 by 100 and between 80 and 100 French gunmen.

According to newspaper reports monitored the presence of Arab and Gulf nationalities, Jordan and Yemen and Africa from Niger and Mali as well as  from Italy, Greece, Germany European nationalities, and Asia through the Chinese presence.

The newspaper said the organization, based in the city of Derna major stronghold in the east is, under the authority orders of a former Iraqi officer, was sent by al-Baghdadi to Libya to organize the military side****(Reuters is wrong its a Yemeni and not Iraqi… just to show you that you can not trust Reuters)

Eshrouk Algerian a Libyan expert quoted, as saying that the rapid expansion of the organization in Libya, mainly due to exhaustion suffered by militias dawn of Libya on the one hand, and the fatigue that gripped the legitimate Libyan army after years of wars and fighting since the fall of the state, and in the light of the ban on the weaponization, rather than because of enrollment Libyan military leaders earlier Daash.

So my question to UN, F.UK.US. and EU how did they miss them???? Or they didn’t???? I think it’s the second they did not miss them actually they INSTALLED them and they are still giving them a free passage… as they want to DISMANTLE the whole of Africa, starting from the richest country Libya and moving along to all neighboring countries. Already there are rumors about an unrest in Algeria which is next to be brought down as the French will not forgive them for taking their own country back…. When will you civilians in the West wake up???? Are you so comfortable and so involved in your own little world that you do not care what’s going on with your neighbor????? Have you lost every inch of HUMANITY?

Will US-NATO Unleash A New War in Libya?


Will US-NATO Unleash A New War in Libya?

In 2011 the aviation of France and Great Britain bombed Libya. Muammar Gaddafi, the leader of the country, was brutally murdered. Now Europe is considering plans to intervene in Libya again. On May 13, the Guardian published an article devoted to a European plan for a military campaign to smash the migrant smuggling networks operating out of Libya. The scenario envisages the use of ground forces. 

The 19-page strategy paper for the mission, obtained by the Guardian, focuses on an air and naval campaign in the Mediterranean and in Libyan territorial waters. But it adds that ground operations in Libya may also be needed to destroy the smugglers’ vessels and assets, such as fuel dumps. Federica Mogherini, the EU’s chief foreign and security policy coordinator, reiterated that position on May 13.

«We are not planning in any possible way a military intervention in Libya,» she said. According to her, establishing control over the territorial waters of Libya is enough to destroy the smugglers’ infrastructure. But the assurances that there will be no boots on the ground sound unconvincing. It’s clear that the West is serious about what it plans to do. For instance, Great Britain is going to send amphibious transport dock HMS Bulwark, the flagship of Royal Navy, to fight small smuggler’s boats. Air and naval forces are to bear the brunt of the mission. The operations conducted ashore by special operations forces teams are not excluded, no matter the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy says otherwise. Media outlets started to examine the public opinion.

The plan obtained by the Guardian says ground operations in Libya may be needed. EU governments have still to discuss and decide on the planning document. A joint session of EU foreign and defence ministers is to decide on the mission on May 18, followed the next day by a meeting of defence chiefs from European Union countries. The military package would then need to be given a green light by heads of government at an EU summit slated for June. Ten European Union members have already expressed their approval, including Great Britain, France, Spain and Italy. According to Ibrahim Dabbashi, Libya’s United Nations ambassador, his government has been left out of the urgent international discussion of the migrant crisis. This is the legacy of colonial past. Europeans still view Libya as a colony.

Federica Mogherini has already visited New York to discuss prospects for a UN Security Council resolution allowing the use of force against the smugglers. The Guardian reports that that the UK has prepared a draft document on behalf of the EU «that is believed to call for the ‘use of all means to destroy the business model of the traffickers’. Mogherini sounded optimistic about adoption of UN Security Council resolution allowing the use of force against the smugglers, but also made plain that if that proved impossible, the EU would still mount a military mission in the Mediterranean outside of Libyan territorial waters and airspace.

A question pops up. Creating obstacles on the way of flows of unfortunate people leaving Libya for Europe – is it the only goal pursued by the planned military operation in the Mediterranean Sea? The Libya’s shoreline is some 1,100 miles (1,800 km) in length. A large naval force is needed to control it. The chances for destroying the smugglers’ infrastructure are slim. Too many people are involved in this business. After the overthrow and murder of Muammar Gaddafi Libya has plunged into the quagmire of chaos. It has joined the list of most unstable countries in the world which are primarily located in Africa. The political turmoil inside the country is kind of free for all – different groups are fighting each other. One government rules the country in Tripoli. Another government functions in Tobruk. There are other «governments» spread around the country. Under the conditions, Libya cannot be called a state in the full meaning of the word.

Under Gaddafi Libya boasted high living standards. From point of view of people’s wealth it was a leader in the Arab world. Today the country has spiraled towards total disorder. There is no whatsoever control on the part of government. Large chunks of national territory have fallen under the control of the Islamic State and other extremist groups. Libya is an oil rich country but the production is low with numerous criminal gangs thwarting the process. Cyrenaica, the oil rich eastern coastal region of Libya, demands autonomy. The country if falling to pieces. The Libya we once knew is no more.

Flows of refugees from Arab and Black Africa transit through Libya on the way to Europe. There is little Europe could do under the circumstances but use military force to stop the flows. Brussels has made all of the European Union members to partner up on policies such as EU immigration. Poland is situated far from Africa but it has to host 1200 refugees. Latvia is to provide shelter to 220 fugitives, Estonia is to host 326 of them. 207 evacuees are to be taken care of by Lithuania. But this policy does not offer a solution to the problem.

In 2015 Libya expects 135 thousand people to be born on its soil, but the population of the country will not increase due to the fact that about the same number of people leave the country. Libya is a transit country for refugees from Algeria, Mali, Niger, Chad, Sudan, Senegal, Ghana and Eritrea going to Europe. The sources in Rome say a surge of immigrants will flood Europe soon. As many as 5,000 migrants a week could arrive in Italy by sea from North African ports in the next five months unless something is done about it, according to an interior ministry projection. The figures, published on April 23 by the Rome newspaper Il Messaggero and confirmed by a ministry source, estimated that as many as 200,000 could arrive by the end of this year.

There should harbor no illusions. One can hardly imagine the West admit responsibility for dire results of the policy aimed at «democratization» of Libya


Libya and “The Arab Spring”: Neoliberalism, “Regime Change” and NATO’s “Humanitarian Wars”

by Michel Chossudovsky, Finian Cunningham and Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya – November 2011 – GlobalResearch

 

INTRODUCTION

First in Global Research’s Interactive Reader Series, we bring to the attention of our readers a collection of Global Research articles on the “Arab Spring”, covering recent developments in several countries across the Middle East and North Africa region. The Interactive Reader is a collection of previously published articles on Global Research. Its objective is to provide an overview as well as a comparative understanding of country-level experiences of the upheavals.

This selection of articles is intended to dispel the notion that the “Arab Spring” is just a pro-democracy movement spreading spontaneously from country to country, opening the way to a meaningful change in the political and economic landscape. The term “Arab Spring” is itself a Western-imposed term conjured up by people who appear to have little understanding of the complexities and realities of the region.

The double-standards of the U.S. and the European Union have become visible during the course of these tumultuous events. Both the US and the EU have kept silent about the brutal repression of unarmed civilian protesters in the Persian Gulf sheikhdoms, such as Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, while, by contrast, the Western powers have vehemently pushed for conflict with Libya and Syria.

America is no “role model” of democratization for the Arab World, comprising some 22 countries with a combined population of 300 million. US military presence imposed on Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, and other Arab countries over decades, coupled with Washington-inspired “free market” reforms, are the root cause of state violence.

Washington’s agenda for Egypt and Tunisia was to hijack the protest movement; what prevails in Egypt is the maintenance of a de facto military regime. In Tunisia, following the October 2011 parliamentary elections, the neoliberal policy framework remains unscathed.

From Washington’s standpoint, regime replacement no longer requires the installation of authoritarian military rulers, as in the heyday of US imperialism. Regime change can be implemented by co-opting political parties, financing civil society groups, infiltrating the protest movement, and by manipulating national elections.

The ultimate objective is to sustain the interests of foreign powers and to uphold the “Washington consensus” of the IMF/World Bank economic agenda that has served to impoverish millions throughout the Arab World and beyond.

Moreover, Western powers have used “Political Islam” –including the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda-affiliated groups– to pursue their hegemonic objectives. Covert operations are launched to weaken the secular state, foment sectarian violence and create social divisions throughout the Arab World.

In Libya, the “pro-democracy” rebels were led by Al Qaeda affiliated paramilitary brigades under the supervision of NATO Special Forces. The much-vaunted “Liberation” of Tripoli was carried out by former members of the Libya Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG)****(The leader of LIFG is Abdulhakim Belhaj MI6 asset and very close friend of the Late Ambassador Stevens, Hillary Clinton, Senator McCain and last but not least the UN representative in Libya “King Bernandino Leon” who gives orders and demands that the HoR international recognized government sits down and talk negotiations with the terrorist GNC holding captive the capital of Tripoli; which are: MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD, LIBYAN DAWN/FAJR, SUNRISE, ISIS/DAESH, AL SHARAIA, AND ALL OTHER TERRORIST GROUPS. I ask you had your country been in situation like Libya would they sit down and negotiate with TERRORISTS?)

Destabilization of sovereign states through “regime change” is closely coordinated with military planning.

War preparations to attack Syria and Iran have been in an advanced state of readiness for several years. The road to Tehran goes through Damascus. A US/NATO-sponsored war on Iran would involve, as a first step, a destabilization campaign (“regime change”) including covert intelligence operations in support of rebel forces directed against the Syrian government.

A “humanitarian war” under the logo of “Responsibility to Protect” (R2P), as seen in Libya, is on the Western powers’ agenda for Syria. Such a venture would also contribute to the ongoing destabilization of Lebanon.

Were a military campaign to be waged against Syria, Israel would be directly or indirectly involved in military and intelligence operations. The hitherto covert role of Saudi Arabia and Turkey in destabilizing Syria would also emerge as open aggression towards long-time regional rival Iran.

A war on Syria could quite possibly ignite a conflagration across the entire Middle East and North Africa, with repercussions on a global scale: Iran’s historic allies, Russia and China, will be pitted against the US and NATO powers; and religious schisms across the region could vent into an explosion of internecine conflicts; also proxy wars currently being waged in East Africa by Western powers could escalate with untold human suffering in an already famine-hit region.

War plans directed against Syria are coordinated with those pertaining to Iran.

Iran’s alleged nuclear weapons programme is the pretext and the justification. Tehran is also identified as a “State sponsor of terrorism”, for allegedly supporting the Al Qaeda network.

In recent developments, what is unfolding is an integrated attack plan on Iran led by the US, with the participation of the United Kingdom and Israel.

The military deployment of US-NATO forces is occurring in several regions of the World simultaneously.

Militarization at the global level is instrumented through the US military’s Unified Command structure: the entire planet is divided up into geographic Combatant Commands under the control of the Pentagon.

The Pentagon’s global military design is one of world conquest. According to (former) NATO Commander General Wesley Clark, the Pentagon’s military road-map consists of a sequence of war theaters : “[The] five-year campaign plan [includes]… a total of seven countries, beginning with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Iran, Somalia and Sudan.”

What this collection of essays demonstrates is that Western intervention in this pivotal world region is far from the benign rhetoric frequently spouted in Washington, London, Paris and Berlin, espousing universal human rights and democratic freedoms. Rather, we are witnessing a neo-imperialist intervention that is self-serving, expedient and ultimately setting the world on a path of incalculable destruction.

The dire consequences of meddling in Libya


The dire consequences of meddling in Libya

by: Con Coughlin

obomba-daash-isis2

Libya has come a long way – and not at all for the good – since David Cameron proclaimed that the successful campaign to overthrow Colonel Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 ***(that was not a successful campaign if you consider that NATO which includes Britain bombed 60.000 sorties in Libya for 8 whole months which was more than what was used in the WWII combined. As for the overthrow I would not call it that I would call it BRUTAL COLD MURDER, that is exactly what they are preparing for the President of Syria. Makes me wonder where the tables turned around what would the West do if one of their psychopaths leaders was brutally murdered? Surely the American idiotic empire would nuke the country who dared to do such an atrocious act, while we the Libyans cannot complain to the UN (because its even worse than NATO) or to anyone for that matter, the same goes for Syria. We have to swallow our pride and dignity accept stoically what is done to us and move on as nothing really happened. How ironic is this? Everywhere I look or research the analysts say that in 2011 we had a civil war – a civil war to begin it has to have 2 different political poles and you must have the country divided which this was not the case. We had a handful of CIA agents plus snipers and expatriates who wanted to invade Libya and murder in cold blood the president of the country that is a FACT not fiction what Cameron, Obama, Sarkozy, UN and NATO did was an ILLEGAL WAR – MASKED AS HUMANITARIAN INTERVENTION and now we see how successful this campaign is)  provided the perfect template for undertaking future military interventions.

After all the political controversy engendered by Britain’s previous military involvement in Afghanistan and Iraq, Downing Street prided itself on the fact that its Libyan campaign objectives were accomplished without the need for any boots on the ground and, more importantly, without incurring a single British combat casualty.

For a few months after Gaddafi’s demise, Mr Cameron basked in the warm afterglow of his first personal experience of military conflict, even making triumphant visits to Tripoli and Benghazi, where he was greeted by cheering crowds ****(I wouldn’t say cheering crowds but paid with over a thousand dinars crowd). Indeed, the belief among senior ministers that Libya constituted a great foreign policy success persisted long after the country had descended ****(they did not persisted they were protected by the European and American Secret AGENTS that is how they stayed into power) into chaos, with lawless bands of Islamist militias roaming the country, killing and kidnapping their opponents with impunity. In 2013, when I accompanied William Hague, the then Foreign Secretary, on a visit to Mali, where Libya-based Islamist groups were threatening to overrun the country, I was subjected to several lectures by his entourage on the merits of the Coalition’s Libyan adventure. ****( and this is what your coalition left behind)

These days Libya is so demonstrably a basket case that, with the general election campaign now well under way, I very much doubt we will be hearing any more idle boasts from Tory politicians about their hollow achievements in the country. On the contrary, I suspect they will be doing everything in their power to gloss over the issue, preferring to concentrate on more certain vote-winning issues, such as the strength of the economy, than their meddling in what has now become North Africa’s most troubled region.

Prior to the 2011 campaign, Libya was producing 1.6 billion barrels per day of its “light sweet” variety of crude oil, with significant quantities being sold to British refineries. Total daily output now stands at around 350,000 barrels, none of which is finding its way on to the export market and is barely sufficient to keep Libya’s own refineries operating – those, that is, whose oil tanks have not been set ablaze by rogue rockets fired by Islamist militias.

For while the Libyan economy is in freefall, the far greater concern remains the endemic state of lawlessness that has made the country a virtual no-go zone for Westerners, and indeed many Libyans. By conservative estimates there are around 100 ***(250) different Libyan militias operating in the country – though the actual figure could be three times that number – with more than 125,000 Libyans bearing arms. Assassinations and kidnappings have become so routine throughout the country that in 2013 the Libyan charged with investigating the assassinations was himself assassinated.

The security situation is further complicated by the growing involvement of other regional powers in the conflict, with Egypt’s new military hard man, General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, sending Egyptian warplanes to bomb anti-government rebels, and Turkey ***(USA, UK & QATAR) openly backing Libya’s Muslim Brotherhood organisation – one of the many factions that are competing for power. The growing confidence of Islamist groups in Libya, furthermore, has resulted in the inevitable link-up with Islamic State fighters operating in Syria and Iraq, with the result that Western intelligence officials are now genuinely concerned that, ****(I doubt they are concerned the journalist has to explain why the Western intelligence is financing and training these terrorists, lets not forget that McCain has a camp in the United States where the terrorists ISIS were being trained, lets also not forget that the pentagon has given the go ahead in training these jihadists in Syria, so please explain to me this controversy? Maybe the Western intelligence are worried that it will be found out again like with the Benghazigate scandal you know the one where the ambassador was murdered and he was an arms dealer between the USA – LIBYA – TURKEY FINAL DESTINATION SYRIA)  with large numbers of jihadists travelling to North Africa, it is only a question of time before Libyan-trained terrorists turn their attentions to Europe, and launch a campaign of violence on the streets of Britain and other European cities. ****(My dear Journalist we in Libya do not have Libyan-trained terrorists what we do have are mercenaries that your country brought into our country, we have no desire to kill anyone in Europe or in America other than Cameron, Hague, Obama, Sarkozy, Clinton, Erdogan, the Prince of Qatar and the late king of Saudi Arabia. It’s a wishful thinking, maybe if all Libyans concentrate with his mind on every single person named above, maybe they will die who knows God works in a mysterious ways. BUT THE ONES THAT YOUR COUNTRY HAS TRAINED IT WOULD BE AN IRONY IF THEY CAME TO YOUR COUNTRY AND CAUSE CHAOS THE SAME WAY THEY HAVE CAUSED IN LIBYA, SYRIA, IRAQ, AFGHANISTAN, PAKISTAN AND YEMEN)

If that happens, then Mr Cameron and his supporters really will have some explaining to do. Certainly, the fact that the latest round of UN-sponsored peace talks in Geneva yesterday broke up without agreement does not bode well for Libya’s immediate future.

Several grave miscalculations on the part of the Coalition and its allies have created this miserable state of affairs. Whitehall’s ill-judged support for the so-called Arab Spring meant that Britain demanded Gaddafi’s overthrow without any consideration for the likely consequences his removal would have for Libya’s future. Another factor was the Government’s refusal to commit ground troops which, while keeping British casualties to a minimum, meant that Britain and its allies were unable to influence Libya’s post-conflict reconstruction phase in a positive, pro-Western direction. ****(What you do not understand dear Journalist who the f@@k gave the right to the coalition to invade Libya, who ever told you we were dissatisfied with our government? Who ever told you we wanted to follow the pro-Western direction, the only thing we wanted is to become like Dubai well that is what the younger generation wanted and its understandable when all our youngsters had everything, everything was provided for them so they wanted a new toy, to look like Dubai, to have an underground (metro) to have trains, to have private jets, to have concerts, nightclubs and alcohol that is all they wanted, they did not want your culture, your sex slave trafficking, your NO RESPECT FOR OTHER HUMAN BEINGS, your no respect for older people or family values and you have no respect for our tribal customs)

The Coalition’s insistence, moreover, on sticking with its “no boots on the ground” mantra has significant implications for the current military campaign being undertaken against Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria. Bombing Isil positions from 20,000ft, as RAF Tornado GR4 warplanes are doing on a regular basis, represents little more than a token gesture, and has only succeeded in halting Isil’s advance further south in Iraq, rather than forcing it to relinquish the large swathes of territory it seized last summer. And, as delegates arriving in London for tomorrow’s summit on Isil will discover, so long as Britain and its allies lack the political will to deploy ground troops, there is little prospect of ending Isil’s murderous reign of terror in Syria and Iraq. ****(Are you that naive? All these terrorist groups are paid by your taxes, these terrorists are the cheap labour army for the Western countries like yours and America so they do not put boots on the ground and have their asses kicked to hell like it was done in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan…. what better way to invade  MIDDLE EASTERN countries with cheap labour army which is not western so NO ONE CAN CLAIM THAT THE WEST DID THIS!!!! If they used their own army there would be many body bags which the western government could not explain to its people the why they were killed when the Middle east is not a security risk but the only thing the West wants is to steal all of our RESOURCES. But the plan has backfired into your face people are waking up and are understanding the manipulation all of you journalists are doing in the name of freedom and democracy…. which it should be told in the name of slavery and dictatorship. Your colonies one by one is waking up and demanding that you leave their country pay damages which will bankrupt the west… that is what you are fighting for, to keep your comfortable houses, jobs etc, but once its gone from your hands and become poor like the African states and expect the UN to feed you with expired food cans, you will expect Brad and Jolie to come and hold your children’s hands when they will be sold for sex slaves to the elitists or to NEW WORLD ORDER which is Israel then maybe then you will understand how evil you were with the rest of the world.)

How the US Helped Create Al Qaeda and ISIS


How the US Helped Create Al Qaeda and ISIS

 

Much like Al Qaeda, the Islamic State (ISIS) is made-in-the-USA, an instrument of terror designed to divide and conquer the oil-rich Middle East and to counter Iran’s growing influence in the region.

The fact that the United States has a long and torrid history of backing terrorist groups will surprise only those who watch the news and ignore history.

The CIA first aligned itself with extremist Islam during the Cold War era. Back then, America saw the world in rather simple terms: on one side, the Soviet Union and Third World nationalism, which America regarded as a Soviet tool; on the other side, Western nations and militant political Islam, which America considered an ally in the struggle against the Soviet Union.

The director of the National Security Agency under Ronald Reagan, General William Odom recently remarked, “by any measure the U.S. has long used terrorism. In 1978-79 the Senate was trying to pass a law against international terrorism – in every version they produced, the LAWYERS said the U.S. would be in violation.”

During the 1970′s the CIA used the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt as a barrier, both to thwart Soviet expansion and prevent the spread of Marxist ideology among the Arab masses. The United States also OPENLY supported Sarekat Islam against Sukarno in Indonesia, and supported the Jamaat-e-Islami terror group against Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto in Pakistan. Last but certainly not least, there is Al Qaeda.

Lest we forget, the CIA gave birth to Osama Bin Laden and breastfed his organization during the 1980′s. Former British Foreign Secretary, Robin Cook, told the House of Commons that Al Qaeda was unquestionably a product of Western intelligence agencies. Mr. Cook explained that Al Qaeda, which literally means an abbreviation of “the database” in Arabic, was originally the computer database of the thousands of Islamist extremists, who were trained by the CIA and funded by the Saudis, in order to defeat the RUSSIANS in Afghanistan.

America’s relationship with Al Qaeda has always been a love-hate affair. Depending on whether a particular Al Qaeda terrorist group in a given region furthers American interests or not, the U.S. State Department either funds or aggressively targets that terrorist group. Even as American foreign policy makers claim to oppose Muslim extremism, they knowingly foment it as a weapon of foreign policy.

The Islamic State is its latest weapon that, much like Al Qaeda, is certainly backfiring. ISIS recently rose to international prominence after its thugs began beheading American journalists. Now the terrorist group controls an area the size of the United Kingdom.

In order to understand why the Islamic State has grown and flourished so quickly, one has to take a look at the organization’s American-backed roots. The 2003 American invasion and occupation of Iraq created the pre-conditions for radical Sunni groups, like ISIS, to take root. America, rather unwisely, destroyed Saddam Hussein’s secular state machinery and replaced it with a predominantly Shiite administration. The U.S. occupation caused vast UNEMPLOYMENT in Sunni areas, by rejecting socialism and closing down factories in the naive hope that the magical hand of the free market would create jobs. Under the new U.S.-backed Shiite regime, working class Sunni’s lost hundreds of thousands of jobs. Unlike the white Afrikaners in South Africa, who were allowed to keep their wealth after regime change, upper class Sunni’s were systematically dispossessed of their assets and lost their political influence. Rather than promoting religious integration and unity, American policy in Iraq exacerbated sectarian divisions and created a fertile breading ground for Sunni discontent, from which Al Qaeda in Iraq took root.

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) used to have a different name: Al Qaeda in Iraq. After 2010 the group rebranded and refocused its efforts on Syria.

There are essentially three wars being waged in Syria: one between the government and the rebels, another between Iran and Saudi Arabia, and yet another between America and Russia. It is this third, neo-Cold War battle that made U.S. foreign policy makers decide to take the risk of arming Islamist rebels in Syria, because Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad, is a key Russian ally. Rather embarrassingly, many of these Syrian rebels have now turned out to be ISIS thugs, who are OPENLYbrandishing American-made M16 Assault rifles.

America’s Middle East policy revolves around oil and Israel. The invasion of Iraq has partially satisfied Washington’s thirst for oil, but ongoing air strikes in Syria and economic sanctions on Iran have everything to do with Israel. The goal is to deprive Israel’s neighboring enemies, Lebanon’s Hezbollah and Palestine’s Hamas, of crucial Syrian and Iranian support.

ISIS is not merely an instrument of terror used by America to topple the Syrian government; it is also used to put pressure on Iran.

The last time Iran invaded another nation was in 1738. Since independence in 1776, the U.S. has been engaged in over 53 military invasions and expeditions. Despite what the Western media’s war cries would have you believe, Iran is clearly not the threat to regional security, Washington is. An Intelligence Report published in 2012, endorsed by all sixteen U.S. intelligence agencies, confirms that Iran ended its nuclear weapons PROGRAM in 2003. Truth is, any Iranian nuclear ambition, real or imagined, is as a result of American hostility towards Iran, and not the other way around.

America is using ISIS in three ways: to attack its enemies in the Middle East, to serve as a pretext for U.S. military intervention abroad, and at home to foment a manufactured domestic threat, used to justify the unprecedented expansion of invasive domestic surveillance.

By rapidly increasing both government secrecy and surveillance, Mr. Obama’s government is increasing its power to watch its citizens, while diminishing its citizens’ power to watch their government. Terrorism is an excuse to justify mass surveillance, in preparation for mass revolt.

The so-called “War on Terror” should be seen for what it really is: a pretext for maintaining a dangerously oversized U.S. military. The two most powerful groups in the U.S. foreign policy establishment are the Israel lobby, which directs U.S. Middle East policy, and the Military-Industrial-Complex, which profits from the former group’s actions. Since George W. Bush declared the “War on Terror” in October 2001, it has cost the American taxpayer approximately 6.6 trillion dollars and thousands of fallen sons and daughters; but, the wars have also raked in billions of dollars for Washington’s military elite.

In fact, more than seventy American companies and individuals have won up to $27 billion in contracts for work in postwar Iraq and Afghanistan over the last three years, according to a recent study by the Center for Public Integrity. According to the study, nearly 75 per cent of these private companies had EMPLOYEES or board members, who either served in, or had close ties to, the executive branch of the Republican and Democratic administrations, members of Congress, or the highest levels of the military.

In 1997, a U.S. Department of Defense REPORT stated, “the data show a strong correlation between U.S. involvement abroad and an increase in terrorist attacks against the U.S.” Truth is, the only way America can win the “War On Terror” is if it stops giving terrorists the motivation and the resources to attack America. Terrorism is the symptom; American imperialism in the Middle East is the cancer. Put simply, the War on Terror is terrorism; only, it is conducted on a much larger scale by people with jets and missiles.
