"Assad Policies Aided the Rise of ISIS"- Lies and Fabrication- Spin

We're going long boys & girls- But, it's going to be worth it!
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.
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”
ISIS originated, rising from the ashes like a goddam phoenix, in Iraq! 
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 extremists
Mr 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 proxy
First mentioned to readers - June 14/14. (on the 14th day, same as today) 
 Obama delivered ultimatum to Maliki via ISIS- Comply or............
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
So Iraq regime change via ISIS terror proxy benefits NATO/US/Israel.

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 
 "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
4- Time  U.S. Weighs Military Action Against ISIS in Syria
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.
“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.
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!

James Foley “beheading” fans the war flames-Problem, Reaction, Solution

 WSJ lies, of course,continue- Now WSJ is going to inform you of this non-truth
 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.
 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!

Flashback yet again to October 22/2013
Al-Qaeda-Linked Group Is Seen Complicating the Drive for Peace in Syria

 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.

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.
Kerry then went on about Assad running for re-election and how this wasn't beneficial to peace
 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. 
 Gulf News-Obama’s sudden change of mind on Syria
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
h't anonymous

"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"

Ukraine (Kiev) suffers heavy losses in counter attack

This article is very, very contrary to many of the main stream media news items from today
It simply begged to have more attention paid to it.
More at the link below
Heavy Losses suffered in counter attack
MOSCOW--Ukraine suffered heavy losses Thursday in a counterattack along a key supply route to the separatist capital of Donetsk, signaling that despite steady advances by government forces pro-Russian rebel fighters still pose a significant threat.

Losses have mounted recently and the fierce fighting adds more pressure on Kiev to seek a compromise at peace talks next week in the Belarusian capital of Minsk, where Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Russian leader Vladimir Putin are scheduled to meet face-to-face for the first time in two months.
If Kiev was doing well, would they even consider seeking a compromise?
The attack in the town of Ilovaisk left 19 fighters from pro-Kiev volunteer battalions dead and 42 wounded, said senior Interior Ministry aide Anton Gerashchenko, without giving a time frame. The government has been steadily eating away at rebel-controlled territory and had said it regained control of Ilovaisk on Wednesday.
Col. Andriy Lysenko, spokesman for Ukraine'sNational Security and Defense Council, said the government had repulsed the insurgent counterattacks and that reinforcements had been sent to help bolster the town's defenses. Separatist leaders, however, said they had surrounded Ukrainian units in the town and prevented reinforcements from getting there.

The losses in Ilovaisk, "shows how fierce the fighting is there," Mr. Gerashchenko wrote in a post on his Facebook page. The four battalions fighting in Ilovaisk are from four volunteer units, and Mr. Gerashchenko said they were acting effectively as army units but without heavy weaponry.

Kiev forces have increasingly relied on the committed but poorly trained volunteer units in recent weeks. Mr. Gerashchenko wrote in his post Thursday that a problem in the operation was a lack of coordination with the army, which provides artillery support for operations.

The months long conflict has begun to weigh heavily on Ukraine's already weakened economy. On Thursday, Economy Minister Pavlo Sheremeta said he had submitted his resignation because he was unhappy with the pace of reforms and the appointment of a trade representative without his approval.

Mr. Sheremeta's departed with a broadside at the government's attempts to overhaul its moribund economy, which is forecast to contract by more than 6% this year.

"We need to change this whole paradigm: The system, the people, the processes," Mr. Sheremeta said Thursday.

Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, an economist who threatened to quit last month over the slow pace of reform, has warned that restoring infrastructure in eastern Ukraine could cost billions of dollars and that the conflict was hamstringing much-needed economic overhauls.

At the same time, Col. Lysenko pointed to government progress in the battle for control of the rebel's easternmost stronghold of Luhansk. Over the weekend, Ukraine took control of a district police station not far from the city and on Wednesday, Col. Lysenko claimed troops had taken control of "a significant part" of the city," without specifying what additional gains had been made.

The rebels deny that the government has made any serious advances into the city. On Thursday, Col. Lysenko said that fierce fighting continues to take place there and that soldiers working in small mobile groups were moving to take out rebel units and checkpoints.
Interesting, no?

James Foley “beheading” fans the war flames-Problem, Reaction, Solution

UPDATED

James Foley?
 James Foley, whatever his situation or affiliations, knew going into a war zone came with potential repercussions. Including death.

So...... why all the fuss?


Allegedly, so?
Problem, Reaction Solution

1-Problem- How to sell the justifcation/need for wider war to the masses?

Create a ‘beheading” story? Fan it up. Lots of coverage. An abundance of self-righteous outrage, demands for justice etc.,
Making conditions right for the already anticipated......................................
2- Reaction.
Let's examine a bit of the conditioning being created to guarantee the proper reaction for the predetermined outcome, which we will get to!

MSM- An overabundance of news stories for an alleged beheading. Geez there have been so many, real ones..that the main stream media looked away or downplayed?  If this beheading actually took place and that is a big if, right now. Why the reams and reams of promotional coverage?

BTW: US Intelligence is claiming the video is real. So what? That doesn't make the beheading real.    No more real then any beheading that takes place in a Hollywood gore flick- That video is real, also!
"the intelligence community reviewed the video and has "reached the judgment that this video is authentic." 
And there you have it!  The intelligence community (appeal to authority, says so, so it must be)

 
Social Media- James Foley’s mother has allegedly posted a statement to Facebook?
CBC- "He gave his life trying to expose the world to the suffering of the Syrian people," said the statement, which was attributed to Foley's mother, Diane Foley.
This alleged posting is a huge red flag for me. Why?
Mr Foley is 40 years old, which would make his mother minimally early ‘60's possibly even in her ‘70's
Not the usual facebook participant: Stats on ages of facebook users!
 The numbers dwindle quickly after that, with 55-63 year-olds at 12.7 percent and 64 and older at 9.3 percent.
It appears that persons in Diane Foley's age group equal about roughly 11 percent of Facebook usage So, odds are stacked against Mr Foley's mom being an actual facebook user.
But, that is not all! No, that is not all.....
Keep this in mind!  There are known to be 83 million fake profiles on Facebook
How many unknown fake profiles are there? The number is likely more then 83 million fakes.
Therefore when we consider- a) Mr Foley’s mother’s age-b) Face book usage stats for that age group. Plus- c) the numbers of fake accounts on Facebook.
 A person can't really give any credence to the statement the msm “attributes” to the mother.
Personally speaking. As a mom and sentient human being, I find this type of activity on the part of a grieving parent completely non-credible. Sorry, if someone just killed my child,, I wouldn’t even be here at this blog.
So, for that reason along with all the others mentioned I don’t believe the statement attributed to the mother is anything but part of some public relations ploy to whip up support for the, already planned and desired by the elites warmongering psychopaths, 'solution'

Alleged beheading video?





That is the only video I could find. I do not see anyone being beheaded. A beheading is certainly suggested. But, suggestion doesn't tell us anything. It only allows us to run away with our emotions and imaginations if we choose to.
I notice the British sounding accent- British Special Ops?
I also notice the editing?
What I don't see is any beheading.
I know Kenny had a link to a video purporting to show this alleged crime,but, I couldn't view it at his link
Link available in the comment section


3- Solution.
In problem, reaction, solution, the "solution", is always that which was planned for all along.
The solution in this case means-Pushing the war into Syria.- This has been obvious for sometime.
This was the intended outcome from the arming of the Kurds, the American military involvement, the request for no fly zones and the involvement of the PKK terror group.
That was one I hadn't got around to. Though I did save articles to use?  The PKK has been involved in Northern Iraq for quite some time now.

Headline Financial Times- "PKK ‘terrorists’ crucial to fight against Isis"
To the west, they are terrorists, yet they are now fighting on the same side as their interests converge with the US in the fight to help Iraq’s Kurdish forces stave off a jihadi offensive.
But Yazidis may better remember the role of Ankara’s rivals. The PKK’s sister group in Syria, the People’s Protection Units (YPG), was the main force battling Isis and helping them escape.

The YPG – whose numbers are believed to be over 20,000 – is probably the most successful group fighting Isis. The jihadi group got its start in war-torn Syria and launched some of its first offensives against Syrian Kurds, who managed to defend most of their enclave.

“The only force that has consistently fought Isis for the past two years was the PKK, under the name of the YPG,” Mr Zagros said. “So who’s the one really fighting terrorism here?”
So brand PKK terrorist and brand YPG were always one in the same and the first offensive the militant Kurds launched was against the Syrian Kurds.... (bringing them in line?)

The West has always had a soft spot for their terrorists... so called. Because clearly they are not terrorists if they are part of the team! With the same goals.

Oh and another NATO Islamic terror group has been involved in Northern Syria- A real blast from the past. Or maybe I am showing my age? Recall the KLA? Think Afghanistan. Think Yugoslavia. Think NATO terror state, drug smuggling, human trafficking, organ trafficking, prostitution etc., 
Hasim Thaci and Madeline Albright. Hasim Thaci and Richard Holbrooke !!!! (linked below)

UPDATE #1- Flashback to old post for the images of Mr Thaci and pals along with the background.
Richard Holbrooke, KLA Terrorists, Kosovo recognition
The US administration's affinity for terrorists runs very deep

Kosovo: Hashim Thaçi in coalition with Kosovo people fighting in Syria, says ex-minister

Skopje. After the police in Kosovo arrested some 40 people accused of terrorism, it is expected the list of suspects will be expanded by at least 20 people, the Macedonian online news edition Dnevnik writes.
The leaders of the Islamist movement Bashkohu [English: Join] of Fuad Ramici and at least 4 imams accused of incitement to hatred and recruiting people to take part in terrorist organisations are among them, Koha Ditore newspaper of Pristina said.
The influential Kosovan imams are from Pristina, Gnjilane and Kosovska Mitrovica and are accused of being directly linked to the terrorist organisations Islamic State and the Al-Nusra Front.
Blerim Kuçi, former interior minister of Kosovo, thinks Kosovan Prime Minister Hashim Thaçi and the Democratic Party of Kosovo are to blame for this as they are in a coalition with the extremists and won the elections for this reason.
It surely looks as if northern Iraq is hosting a NATO terrorist reunion.
This beheading, likely not real, is all the impetus the terror states - US, UK, France, Israel (NATO) along with their terror minions need to push into Syria and make that new oil state of Kurdistan...

UPDATE # 2 - Added August 21/08

H/T  Kenny @ Kenny's Sideshow - Image from the beheading
Notice any anomalies?

To help you out in spotting the differences an image of Foley


UPDATE # 3- Added August 21/08

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/aug/21/elite-forces-us-raid-syria-james-foley-failed
So we're to believe that special forces are deployed to rescue civilians?
Only in Hollywood movies.........

UPDATE # 4
In a surprise development Syria warning the US against airstrikes in the country...
“Any unilateral action beyond UN Security Council Resolution 2170 will be considered an act of aggression against an independent state,” Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Miqdad said on Wednesday.
Smooth

 A bit more from the article

Syria’s state-run SANA news agency quoted Miqdad as saying the US “should refrain from using the international community’s resolutions to cover for interference into internal affairs of other states.”



Because it hasn't been toooo flippin obvious this was exactly the direction the US and company are heading? How long have I been mentioning it?  Surely, Syria's gov can see what is right in front of everyone's face?!

UPDATE #5

Staged Provocations Ahead Possible US-Syrian War

With the alleged brutal murder of American journalist James Wright Foley, a wave of anger and aggression across Western audiences has been generated. Upon that wave rides two objectives. One is to create plausible deniability for the West which created the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq (ISIS), the other is to create a further pretext to justify a resurgence of direct US military intervention across the region.
Continues:

Yup, a wave of anger and aggression has certainly been generated- the reaction factor!

US/Syria "not on same page" fighting ISIS- FAA issues no fly warning over Syria

Gee, how come the US & Syria are not on the same page in fighting ISIS?
Isn't the US striking at ISIS in Iraq? Because they are terrorists? The very same terrorists who have laid seige to many towns, brutalized civilians and taken over oilfields in Syria?
How could they not be "on the same page"?
Of course, I am being rhetorical!US, Syria ‘not on the same page’ in fighting IS

State Department official says Washington, Damascus have yet to share common ground in fight against IS.
 Washington and Damascus are "not on the same page" in the fight against their common enemy the Islamic State, whose militants have declared a "caliphate" straddling swathes of Iraq and Syria, US officials said Monday.

The United States has been battling IS insurgents just over the Syrian border in Iraq with a series of air strikes that began on August 8.

Over the past three days, US military aircraft carried out 35 strikes, destroying more than 90 IS targets in the most intensive bombardments since the start of the campaign.

While acknowledging that Syria and the United States shared a common enemy, State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf said the two have yet to share common ground.

"I would strongly disagree with the notion that we are on the same page here in terms of what we're doing," Harf said.

She also stressed that "in Iraq, we have a government that has asked for our help and asked for our support and welcomed us in. That obviously is not the case in Syria."

On Monday, Syrian warplanes bombed IS positions in the northern province of Raqa for a second day and warplanes targeted several IS-held positions in Aleppo province.

"It's a good thing when ISIS fighters are taken off the battlefield, period," Harf said, using another acronym by which the group is known.

But "I'm not going to say that we share anything in common with the Syrian regime," she added.

Harf also pegged blame for the militants' growing presence on "the Assad regime's own actions that helped lead to the rise of ISIS," which joined in with some opposition fighters battling the government there.

In the long-term, Harf said, the US aims "to take out ISIS's leadership, to degrade their operational abilities, to cut off their financing sources, to go after them in a comprehensive way, to cut off their ability to do the things we've seen them do."
The US aims to take out the ISIS leadership? Hmmmmm......
Convenient?

Flashback!-

Where in the world is al Baghdadi? Kurdish media official says he fled to Syria!

 —Leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and self-proclaimed caliph Abu-Bakr Al-Baghdadi fled the northern city of Mosul to return to Syrian territory

Flashback!-

1-  Air Corridors & Bogus Humanitariansim as cover for wider war in the Middle East?

2- The Yazidi genocide narrative strains credulity- No fly zone by stealth

Air Corridors and No fly zones by stealth?

And more from today's news!-

FAA- No flying over Syria as 'rebels' just happen upon anti air-craft missiles

TIMING???!!!

-Armed groups in Syria have an estimated several hundred portable anti-aircraft missiles that could easily be diverted to extremists and used to destroy low-flying commercial planes.
 -The report was released just hours after the US Federal Aviation Administration issued a notice to US airlines banning all flights in Syrian airspace.
 Porous borders and the presence in Iraq and other neighbouring countries of groups affiliated with al-Qaeda and other extremists heighten the danger that anti-aircraft weapons could spread to other trouble spots.
 The report names Sudan, Qatar and Saudi Arabia as likely sources for MANPADS systems smuggled to insurgents inside Syria but cautions that there still is no certainty about their origins. Rebel groups have also boasted of seizing anti-aircraft launchers and missiles from Syrian forces.
MANPADS "smuggled to insurgents" -NO CERTAINTY OF THEIR ORIGINS
Repeat- NO CERTAINTY OF THEIR ORIGINS

Coincidentally or NOT- The US and EU are shipping arms ostensibly to the "Kurds"

Obama administration has revealed that Washington has started arming Kurds.
Arming the Kurds is arming ISIS- there is a definite connection between those two groups

This comes after the France foreign minister Laurent Fabius stated that soon France and other European countries would discuss the possibility of giving heavy weapons to Iraq, especially Kurdish Peshmerga Forces.

In an interview with French media, Fabius pointed out that it is important for European countries to give heavy and modern weapons to Iraq, particularly Peshmerga forces in order that they are be able to defend and protect their homeland as well as other ethnic groups against the (IS) militants.
Giving heavy weapons to Kurds and Iraq- Porous borders between Iraq and Syria
Airdrops in the mountains to the Yazidi brand Kurds--- across the mountains lies Syria
Manpads smuggled to insurgents- uncertain origins
Get the picture?

The logical fallacy of “blowback” Intoxication with the blowback mind virus

Logical Fallacy: a misconception resulting from incorrect reasoning;  the logical fallacy of assuming the conclusion in the premises
Blowback is a logical fallacy- the logical fallacy of assuming the conclusion in the premises
Blowback, as commonly touted by the lying war mongering media, is always presented in this fashion: unforseen consequences from previous actions  Emphasis always on the “unforseen” 
Unforseen- defined as not anticipated or predicted.
Unforseen goes hand in hand with the ‘incompetence’ meme constantly and continuously.

These mind viruses work together like this-

1-We overthrew this (Insert name of country_______) government  + Said government then became a tyranny & very bad things happened = We had no idea this would result in any type of blowback, because we are a) incompetent b) lacked imagination c) could not have anticipated this outcome

Surely there are more examples that can be presented, but, am hoping this one will suffice?

I have been rolling this concept around in my head for some time now. Iraq’s most recent violent regime change was the impetus for today's post. What with the US claiming they want a “unity” government......
When facts speak otherwise. This is how I see Iraq playing out (comment from previous post)
“what I am certain of.. there will be more bloodshed
because the majority shiites will find themselves impoverished, usurped and left out- its not going to sit well with them all and of course
Iraq is central to that area so it will be a staging ground for further bloodshed”
In other words I can see the situation worsening not improving. The media will sell this as the logical fallacy known as blowback.  Of course, it is not blowback! It's the plan!

Witnessing, via the media, the recent state sponsored terror inflicted regime changes. In Libya. Ukraine. Iraq. Presented  to the masses with specific positive humanitarian themes and sales campaigns-
Taking stable nations and completely destabilizing them in the name of :
a) saving certain peoples (recently Kurd brand Yazidi)- which always begs the questions why only certain persons are ‘worthy’ of saving
b) freeing people from “tyranny” or “tyrants” (recently Gadaffi)
c) responding to the overwhelming desire of the masses (recently Ukraine)
What all these regime changes, for the so called benefit of the populace, have brought is instability. Violence. Displacement. Brutality. Degradation. Hunger. Homelessness. Disease. You get the picture?
Not improvement. Rather, the complete opposite. Degeneration. Degredation. Instability.
Are we to believe this is simply the unintended consequence of these regime changes?
The blowback?


I cannot accept this as anything other then yet another logical fallacy- That which seems to make sense on the surface, but, when one looks below the surface................
Nonsense

Then, I came across this piece!
 Maliki and the futility of regime change
The author goes through a history of regime changes American style and it’s not shocking to notice that they are big, glaring failures!

“America’s track record in the business of selecting or changing leaders in global hot spots where the United States finds itself involved (as if that is just some random occurrence?) is rather poor. Operations such as the overthrow of Mohammad Mossadegh in Iran or the Diem family in South Vietnam, or the botched Bay of Pigs raid to oust Fidel Castro, or the various clandestine operations in Latin America, have often generated problems greater than the ones they were meant to solve”
“The history of flubbed regime change does argue that there is no quick fix”
Notice the incompetence sales pitch? "flubbed"

And yet, despite this over abundance of historical failures the US keeps on violently changing regimes?
Therefore one has to sensibly conclude these failures are the desired outcome.
Failed states. Disease. Poverty. Displacement. Etc., And that ‘blowback’ is simply the sales pitch, propaganda term, PR spin, the mind virus spread to the masses in order to make them believe otherwise.
 If that is not exactly the desired outcome then why keep taking the same types of actions over and over and expect anything but the exact same result? Which is of course the definition of insanity and to my mind the definition of psychopathy.

Either way? - We have a problem with those we allow to lead us and it is not incompetence. It is evil. Pure evil, manifesting itself in the most horrific anti-human activities imaginable then hiding their criminality behind spin. To break free of this toxic, evil, psychopathic leadership we need to first rid ourselves of this blowback mind virus. Detox or cleanse it from our own brain and stop infecting others with this intoxicant!

Intoxicant- Anything taken into a body by one mean or another that produces a condition of diminished mental and physical ability, hyperexcitability, or stupefaction.

ISIS Tentacles Reach toward China

This is an interesting article. 

What do readers here think about these connections?
 I see it as a definite possibility, when we recall the fact that Uighers and  Pakistanis were killing Syrians and making their NATO best effort to destroy that nation. It already seems we have some connectivity.
I know nothing of Peter Lee. If anyone else has come across his work let me know?
"It's been reported on the always-reliable Twitter by a Pakistan journalist, Ali Kamran Chishti, that Abdul Maulana Aziz has declared his support for the "Caliphate of Abu Bakar Baghdadi", ie ISIS, or the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, now the Islamic State. "Video to be uploaded soon". If confirmed, this is potentially big and bad news for the People's Republic of China.

Abdul Maulana Aziz was the radical spiritual leader of Lal Masjid, the Red Mosque, in downtown Islamabad. In 2007, after a prolonged and desultory siege, Pakistan armed forces stormed the mosque, signaling a partial fracture of the de facto alliance between the Pakistan deep state and radical Islam.  The confrontation was little noted in the West, but it was big news in the People's Republic of China.
 Followers of the Red Mosque had targeted Chinese sex workers as part of a purification campaign; Uyghur students - "terrorists" according to the PRC - were reportedly ensconced at the mosque, and, as the as the siege muddled slowly on its initial stages, radical Islamists retaliated against Chinese in other parts of the country.

In response, the PRC, which at that time relied largely upon the good offices of its local allies and assets to keep a lid on Uyghur extremism, demanded action. The then president, General Pervez Musharraf, torn between his military/intelligence and Chinese constituencies, obliged the PRC by sending troops personally loyal to him to storm the mosque in a bloody, catastrophic attack that probably claimed hundreds of lives.

Aziz had previously attempted to escape the siege by disguising himself in a burka, but was captured and paraded before the cameras in a humiliating fashion. His brother died in the assault

Where in the world is al Baghdadi? Kurdish media official says he fled to Syria!


Amongst the many other outrageous claims he makes...

Erbil, Asharq Al-Awsat—Leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and self-proclaimed caliph Abu-Bakr Al-Baghdadi fled the northern city of Mosul to return to Syrian territory after the US authorized airstrikes on ISIS positions in Iraq, a Kurdish official said.

In comments to Asharq Al-Awsat, Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) spokesman Saeed Mamo Zinni said: “Caliph of the Islamic State Abu-Bakr Al-Baghdadi left Mosul for Syria a few days ago.”

“According to our intelligence sources, Abu-Bakr Al-Baghdadi traveled to Syria as part of a convoy of 30 Hummer vehicles after fearing being targeted by US airstrikes,” Zinni said. He added that Kurdish Peshmerga forces have been able to kill a number of ISIS senior leaders.
