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 & 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 was formed in Iraq- Emerging from the ashes of the US led invasion? Nice language. Romantic, evocative  language. But, what does it really mean? This tells me the US invaders birthed ISIS.
Notice immediately following the 'official withdrawal' of US Troops, attacks by ISIS against the Shiite population immediately increase. Acting exactly like a"stay  behind" army aka Operation Gladio after WW2- there is absolutely no reason to believe this type of strategy ever ended.
"In a stay-behind operation, a country places secret operatives or organisations in its own territory, for use in the event that an enemy occupies that territory. If this occurs, the operatives would then form the basis of a resistance movement (or destabilizers/terrorizers/elected government topplers) or act as spies from behind enemy lines. Small-scale operations may cover discreet areas, but larger stay-behind operations envisage reacting to the conquest of entire countries"
ISIS is a stay behind operation- called up as needed by the country/ies that put that army in place.
The US led invasion was the ISIS catalyst  and immediately following US troop withdrawals, that were little more then sleight of hands (Read-The US Departure from Iraq was all Illusion!),  attacks against Shiites(targeted populace) by ISIS increased, in order to foment sectarian violence in Iraq.

Since the US/NATO structure created and left ISIS behind it was easy enough to engage them as needed to destabilize Iraq, foment sectarian violence and finally pressure/manipulate or subdue Maliki Obama delivered an ULTIMATUM to Maliki via ISIS- Comply or.....

What means may the US have used to create the ISIS left behind army?  I would think the US used Iraq's money and assets which were stolen by the US after the disgusting, disgraceful, based on lies attack on Iraq, knowing there would be very little debt repayment required.

Let's recall two very important occurences after the US destroyed a nation for no reason at all.?

I have to thank Mother B@Revolt of the Barbarians for reminding me of this forgotten bit of history. Thanks Mother B!! 

First- The US wanted Iraq's debt forgiven- "US wanted most of Iraq's debt Forgiven"
  Iraq's debts are estimated at about $120 billion, and Washington was expected to press Iraq's foreign creditors to forgive at least 80 percent of it as an Iraqi caretaker government prepares to take up the reins at the end of June.  (Article dated 2004)
 "In our view, I think it's clear it shows the need for the reduction of the vast majority of Iraq's debt," considering its future oil revenues and costs of rebuilding the war-wracked country, said the official.
But the biggest creditors, France and Russia, favor a smaller reduction in Iraq's obligations since they want to be repaid and because Iraq's oil resources are seen by some as substantial enough to warrant it paying a larger portion.
Britain, like the US was all for the massive debt relief- Keep that in mind readers, keep that in mind!

The US claimed the debt was odious. And that the Iraqi people should not be held responsible for the debts incurred by a 'tyrannical leader'. As if the US cared? They didn't.  The US simply had other ideas for Iraq's wealth.

Not to waste one moment of plundering time the US set out to steal/redirect Iraqi funds under none other then the mouthpiece who has an opinion piece in WSJ today, L Paul Bremmer- Only American Can Prevent A Disaster

And it's a sickening article- but there are some tidbits
"Removing Saddam Hussein upended a thousand years of Sunni domination in the lands of Mesopotamia"
 Think about that, ok? Presently the US is reinstating an extremist form of Sunni domination in order to remake the Middle East. Saddam was no religious fanatic. Iraq was non sectarian then same as Syria is now.
 Grab your barf bag and read the rest of L Paul Bremmer's diatribe.

Second- Recall the plunder of Iraq under the watchful eyes of L Paul Bremmer?
 Contemplate how all that stolen Iraqi wealth was used to create a massive left behind army of fanatics? That could then be used, as needed, to terrorize Iraq and other nations...such as we are seeing in Syria- today. This is not coincidence! It's not incompetence. It's a plan. The left behind armies are used as needed, for what was needed. ISIS is a left behind army. And the money used to build this army was stolen from Iraq.
The federal reserve fired up the presses- Stealing the real wealth of Iraq and the future of the Iraqi nation and her peoples and the US/NATO created their terror army

So, Mr Bremer, where did all the money go?

 When Paul Bremer, the American pro consul in Baghdad until June last year, arrived in Iraq soon after the official end of hostilities, there was $6bn left over from the UN Oil for Food Programme, as well as sequestered and frozen assets, and at least $10bn from resumed Iraqi oil exports. Under Security Council Resolution 1483, passed on May 22 2003, all these funds were transferred into a new account held at the Federal Reserve Bank in New York, called the Development Fund for Iraq (DFI), and intended to be spent by the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) "in a transparent manner ... for the benefit of the Iraqi people".

16 billion so far

The US Congress also voted to spend $18.4bn of US taxpayers' money on the redevelopment of Iraq. By June 28 last year, however, when Bremer left Baghdad two days early to avoid possible attack on the way to the airport, his CPA had spent up to $20bn of Iraqi money, compared with $300m of US funds.

Bremmer spent 20 billion Iraqi dollars, on what?

The CPA maintained one fund of nearly $600m cash for which there is no paperwork: 
They have also discovered that $8.8bn that passed through the new Iraqi government ministries in Baghdad while Bremer was in charge is unaccounted for, with little prospect of finding out where it has gone. A further $3.4bn appropriated by Congress for Iraqi development has since been siphoned off to finance "security".

The US stonewalled every attempt to account for the funds. And Bremmer left Iraq before the whitewashed report was released

 There appears to have been good reason for the Americans to stall. At the end of June 2004, the CPA would be disbanded and Bremer would leave Iraq. There was no way the Bush administration would want independent auditors to publish a report into the financial propriety of its Iraqi administration while the CPA was still in existence and Bremer at its head still answerable to the press. So the report was published in July.

The independent auditors were from Kuwait, so, not independent.
 An Iraqi hospital administrator told me that when he came to sign a contract, the American army officer representing the CPA had crossed out the original price and doubled it. The Iraqi protested that the original price was enough. The American officer explained that the increase (more than $1m) was his retirement package. When the Iraqi Governing Council asked Bremer why a contract to repair the Samarah cement factory was costing $60m rather than the agreed $20m, the American representative reportedly told them that they should be grateful the coalition had saved them from Saddam. Iraqis who were close to the Americans, had access to the Green Zone or held prominent posts in the new government ministries were also in a position personally to benefit enormously.
 Millions of dollars in cash went missing from the Iraqi Central Bank. Between $11m and $26m worth of Iraqi property sequestered by the CPA was unaccounted for. The payroll was padded with hundreds of ghost employees. Millions of dollars were paid to contractors for phantom work. Some $3,379,505 was billed, for example, for "personnel not in the field performing work" and "other improper charges" on just one oil pipeline repair contract.
 There is, of course, much more. So read it at the link above. It is clear that the US, under L Paul Bremer, stole funds from the Iraqis in order to create their left behind army- ISIS.
They had the money, the means and the incentive.


  1. Gotta run so if the post needs tidying I will get to it later.
    sorry. however, the info is solid
    bye for now :)


    something else to note is according to there are no restrictions on the amount of cash you can carry into Iraq but you can not leave with more than $10,000 ... but take note of no restrictions on the Dinar which is Iraq's currency. There is no wording on the site about currency equivilence or exchange so just adding 'dollars' with no other stipulation would not be legally binding in non-dollars.

  3. Check out:
    Syria cleaning house up on the Northwest border.
    Syria and Iraq jointly striking targets
    Israel striking out after kidnapping of another dual citizen - think Egypt prisoner swap
    Another cargo of Kurd oil sails
    That former Iraqi VP calling it a spring
    Saudis denouncing the Iraq strikes [emphasis]
    ISIL militants post photos of mass killing [e.g. the new form of fear projection]

    keep an eye on Sri lanka...sectarian strife kicking off,. China just announced will build airport near its port there after talking up maritime silk road. US backing a Human rights inquiry over alleged mass graves - Balkans again - that Sri lanka rejects. That US ship detained last year with weapons leading to India dust up was off the coast south eastern coast of India.

    "...mystery shrouding the United States ship carrying arms and ammunition, which was detained at Tamil Nadu’s Tuticorin port, appears to be getting deeper."

    1. thanks for all the info
      I will check it out!!!

  4. last week Hezbollah said it would not go to Iraq. However from this am:

    with Syria rollup up the Northwest - which you might remember ford said last week the rebels were winning there - it looks like Hez is set to back fill as perhaps Syria partners up and starts to hit out in Iraq.

    Hezbollah to fill gap left from ISIS in Syria

    1. more good reading, thanks
      I have been trying to get up to speed on Syria and keep an eye on the Ukraine while watching Iraq
      It's overwhelming so information from others is great!

  5. I'm no expert on photo manipulation but lay your critical eyesight on this:

  6. Since were on the subject of corruption, here is a good one.

    The so called missile defense system the US has built at a cost, so far, over $40 billion is so incapable of doing its job that a single Topol-M(RS-24) could overwhelm the entire system on the west coast and Alaska combined. Since this is public knowledge and Russia is quite aware of this fact, then the excuse that it is for political reasons just don't hold water. This leaves only one conclution in my mind and that is the whole project is solely to siphon money from the taxpayers into the pockets of defense contractors.

    Here is some background on the system.

    So according to that article, they have a total of 30 interceptors ready to fly. A single Topol-M can carry up to 10 warheads (MIRV) in addition to many decoys. The decoys are just mylar ballons inflated once deployed and have very little weight or size so many can be carried. But with current radar technology it is impossible to distinguish between a decoy and one of the warheads.(100-300kt...7-22 Hiroshimas each). So according to that article launching multiple interceptors (3-5) to get only a 90% intercept success means they can not even stop a single missile from destroying a major city if the entire system was exhausted trying to stop it.

    The system is a complete failure against a single missile and cost so far over $40 billion. Who benefits???


    I need to start my own blog and stop hijacking threads on others just to rant... lol

    what should I call it?

    1. What should you call a blog, don't ask me?
      Only you know
      I don't mind you hijacking at least you leave relevant information
      YOu should see some of the other crap that has been posted here?
      Or maybe you shouldn't

  7. forgot the link to Topol-M specs...

  8. Last night at around 3 in the morning (Arizona time) I ran down to the market to get some cigarettes and listened to the radio on the short trip. Some BBC rebroadcast talking about the situation in Iraq and ISIS. Of course they had their so called 'experts' giving their one sided scripted talking points to point out the direction Iraq should take. It was blatently obvious to me that this was pointing out specifically what the agenda was and why this move by ISIS.

    Basic rundown of talking points...

    1. It's all Maliki's fault.

    2. ISIS attack is an 'uprising'

    3. Maliki has failed to bring all parties envolved together.

    4. Sunni's should be given more power and should take over.

    5. Maliki should step down.

    6. but... there is no replacement for Maliki.

    So, there you have it. Plain as day. The US/zionist/Saudi agenda is regime change.


    Well, in my opinion, Prime Minister Maliki is doing a fairly good job at bringing those together who want a stable and independet Iraq. He has good relations with Iran, Russia, China, as well as others, and these partners are making headway to put Iraq on a path to stability in economic, social, and security areas. This path is counterproductive to the western agenda of keeping Iraq under control and keeping it down to do with as it pleases.

    kudos Penny. You nailed it from the get go.

  9. thanks Paul.

    the stats on the election as reported in the Guardian UK are as follows

    "More than 9,000 candidates from across Iraq vied for the parliament's 328 seats in the election on 30 April. Electoral officials reported that 62% of the 22 million eligible voters cast ballots "

    Maliki won with higher voter turnout out then the chocolate tool in Ukraine and you do not see the US wanting Mr fudgeeoo out of the gov

    The country is a majority Shiite nation,( around 65/35) why should the ISIS Sunni's rule, other then for the reason the Sunnis are the tools of the terror army

    They (NATO nutters) are recreating the same scenario as when Hussein was in and he had to be removed because he repressed the Shiites so badly... or so the spin and bullshit goes
