Seriously, I cannot begin to describe how furious this lie filled piece of propaganda masquerading as fact, from Wall Street Journal, made me feel.
I have written and read so much about Syria that, yes indeed, I feel confident in saying that WSJ has published garbage.
WSJ- Islamic State, or ISIS, Gained Momentum Early On From Calculated Decision by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to Go Easy on It
First paragraph from this narrative creating article
The Islamic State, which metastasized from a group of militants seeking to overthrow the Syrian government into a marauding army gobbling up chunks of the Middle East, gained momentum early on from a calculated decision by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to go easy on it, according to people close to the regime.Wrong. ISIS originated in Iraq and entered Syria. ISIS or IS as they are now branding it did not originate in Syria. Or should I say metastasize to promote the Obama meme equating ISIS &cancer? Total PR/spin work.
FLASHBACK! Monday, June 16, 2014- ISIS- A US created "stay behind" using Iraqs plundered wealth.
ISIS originated, rising from the ashes like a goddam phoenix, in Iraq!If we understand ISIS to be a left behind army, working on behalf of another master, then the application of pressure on Maliki amp;; the collusion between the Kurds of Iraq and ISIS makes perfect sense.
Where or when did ISI/ ISIS/ISIL get started?
Note: I am going to call this Left behind army - ISIS from here on in. Because they are one Army broken down in subdivisions like any standard army- top down organization. So ISIS. Easier to recall.
CFR AND Al-Monitor
- The roots of ISIS go back to Oct. 15, 2006, when what is known as the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) was established.-The group emerged in the ashes of the U.S.-led invasion to oust Saddam Hussein as al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI)-After a U.S. counterterrorism campaign and Sunni efforts to maintain local security in what was known as the Tribal Awakening, AQI violence diminished from its peak in 2006–2007. But since the withdrawal of U.S. forces in late 2011, the group has increased attacks on mainly Shiite targets in what is seen as an attempt to reignite conflict between Iraq's Sunni minority and the Shiite-dominated government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki”
WSJ Paragraph 2- Earlier in the three-year-old Syrian uprising, Mr. Assad decided to mostly avoid fighting the Islamic State to enable it to cannibalize the more secular rebel group supported by the West, the Free Syrian Army, said Izzat Shahbandar, an Assad ally and former Iraqi lawmaker who was Baghdad's liaison to Damascus. The goal, he said, was to force the world to choose between the regime and extremistsMr Assad has been fighting "ISIS" all along, because there are ZERO moderate or secular rebels in Syria, supported by the West. That's right none. Not a one! Long time readers will knowI call these fighters NATO/Israel's Islamist army cause that is exactly what they are
I don't care what brand they are being promoting as- they are NATO/Israel's Islamist fighters
Cont with WSJ lies- The Islamic State, also known by the acronyms ISIS and ISIL, has emerged recently as a major threat to the entire region and beyond. Its seizure of territory in neighboring Iraq triggered American airstrikes, and its execution this week of kidnapped American journalist James Foley prompted President Barack Obama to vow to continue the U.S. air war against the group in Iraq and to relentlessly pursue the killers. General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the group can't be defeated without choking off its operations in Syria."ISIS", aka Nato/Israel's Islamist army, seizure of territory in it's birthplace of Iraq was not a surprise to the US- It was infact very beneficial to the US and company so they could enact a regime change, create the new petro state of Kurdistan and start bombing Syria!
Flashback yet again! -June 14/14 & August 14/14
Iraq regime change operation- First mentioned by me, here one the blog, two months before Obomba achieved his goal-
Achieved as reported here August 14 Maliki stands down- US Regime change accomplished via ISIS terror proxyFirst mentioned to readers - June 14/14. (on the 14th day, same as today)
So Iraq regime change via ISIS terror proxy benefits NATO/US/Israel.I am not sure what Obama is aiming for? But am now certain the election win by Maliki triggered the use of ISIS to help bring about the Obama administrations desired results.
“It’s going to be very interesting to see the impact of this crisis on that process,” the official said.
There you have it! The crisis was created to impact the election process.
The thumb screws being applied is more then clear in the paragraph below
Kurdistan creation- It's being worked on. And has been mentioned in far too many posts for me to relink
Feel free to look back- But this is interesting, I had it saved for today.
It’s time we contemplated the possibility of a post-conflict Kurdistan
Oh, really? I am sure that has been contemplated for a hell of a long time now!
It’s time we contemplated, quite seriously, the possibility of a post-conflict Kurdistan. It would mean changing the borders of Iraq; it would mean infuriating Turkey, but it’s looking increasingly like reality.Of course what the blathering idiot from the Spectator didn't mention is creating a post conflict Kurdistan would require altering the borders of Syria But, then that might give away a bit too much of the agenda, right?
Kurdistan creation in Syria- a foregone conclusion according to this guy- Syrian Kurdistan's status will be recognised: FM Salih Gedo 22.8.2014 - How does he know?
Plans to bomb sovereign Syrian territory- let's count the reports?
1-Above lie filled screed from WSJ
2- If the Islamic State is to be stopped in Iraq, it must be stopped in Syria too
3- Dempsey hits Islamic militant 'end-of-days' vision
4- Time U.S. Weighs Military Action Against ISIS in Syria"To your question, can they be defeated without addressing that part of their organization which resides in Syria? The answer is no," he said. "That will have to be addressed on both sides of what is essentially at this point a nonexistent border."And that will come when we have a coalition in the region that takes on the task of defeating ISIS over time," Dempsey added
Gen. Martin Dempsey, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Thursday that any strategy against ISIS would have to include action against militants in Syria, and Rhodes didn’t disagree with that assertion Friday.Of course all this talk of bombing Syria was made possible by that very convenient, faked beheading of whoever we are supposed to believe was in that video. A timely beheading that, of course, benefits the US/NATO/Israel agenda so perfectly. Cause the beheading does nothing for Syria!
“Well, we certainly agree that any strategy to deal with the [ISIS] organization has to deal with both sides of the border, Iraq and Syria.
WSJ lies, of course,continue- Now WSJ is going to inform you of this non-truth
As I have already made abundantly clear over these 3 plus years- Syria has been fighting NATO's Islamic Terror groups funded and trained by the US/Israel/Turkey and the GCC nations all along!The Assad regime now appears to be shifting away from its early reluctance to engage the group.
In June, Syria launched airstrikes on the group's headquarters in Raqqa in northern Syria, the first large-scale offensive against the militant group since it rose to power a year ago.
Flashback yet again to October 22/2013
This is one older example of the moderates vs extremist narrative. (or at least as far back as I could find right now, but, I think there are other posts addressing this nonsense) Branding some of the NATO Islamists as 'terrorists' vs moderates. They are all terrorists- They have been terrorizing Syrians for more then 3 years now- They are bought, paid, armed, trained, fed, medically treated for with Western/NATO/US/Israeli/British/French/Canadian and GCC dollars
"Oh it isn't just 'al Qaeda' complicating the drive for peace. Pay attention to what John Kerry is saying.Kerry then went on about Assad running for re-election and how this wasn't beneficial to peace
By challenging moderate Syrian rebels,(? phony narrative, there are no moderates) the group, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, has forced them to fight on two fronts and divert resources from their battle with the government of President Bashar al-Assad, the official said.
If he thinks he’s going to solve problems by running for re-election I can say to him, I think, with certainty this war will not end as long as that’s the case or he is there,” Mr. Kerry said, referring to Mr. Assad.Kerry and company made dam sure the war on Syria didn't end. He said with certainty the war was going to go on and he made it so! Kerry didn't care what the Syrian's wanted. So, when Mr Assad handily won the election well the US just had to do something
And if you pay attention to dates, because they are important, Bashar Assad was soundly re-elected by Syrians- who voted in droves, including while in refugee camps of other nations, June of this year!
Flashback again!- June 3/2014
Syria- Assad's election win/Obama sudden change of 'mind'
Recap- Assad wins big. In a timely fashion ISIS advances in Iraq in order to enable the regime change of the democratically elected leader in Iraq. Allowing for US troop buildup, bombing runs, lots of armed killers and prepping for what? It appears as if a long planned move on Syria is in the works! Convenient!
June 03/14- "While the Syrians make their choice, democratically, at the ballot box the global fascist dictator, Obama, plots against the tiny sovereign, daring to be independent, nation.
President Barack Obama’s foreign policy speech at West Point last week was in large part a list of all the things he doesn’t want to do. He doesn’t want to withdraw from the world. At the same time, he doesn’t want to use military force to solve every problem. Above all, he doesn’t want to get stuck in another war in the Middle East, or anywhere else, for that matter.
But there’s an exception to the Obama Doctrine of restraint: terrorism. Obama is ready and willing to use US military power — indirectly if possible, directly if needed — against terrorists who pose a threat to the US
Digression- So, how convenient is it for the US that James Foley (American) was beheaded in Syria?
Very convenient! James Foley beheading was terrorist attack against the US
Continuing-That’s why, even as he has withdrawn troops from Iraq and Afghanistan, the president has sent military advisors to Africa. And that’s why, almost unnoticed, he has approved a gradual but significant escalation of US action on the most complicated and dangerous battlefield of all: Syria.And finally I want to end this very lengthy post by first saying thanks for staying with it
And then, share this quote left by an anonymous commenter
"The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary"
