When first reading this news June 10/15, I became alarmed at what this increase in advisers signified At the time this news article was initially written the headline announced the increasing of advisers to Iraq- The headline now reads: Obama plans to send more troops into Iraq
original url- http://www.cbsnews.com/news/obama-administration-new-isis-strategy-increase-advisers-troops-in-iraq/
“The Obama administration is retooling its strategy in the fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in Iraq. The president plans to send hundreds more American military advisers into the country, and to establish a new base to accelerate the training of Iraqi forces in Anbar province, the western section of Iraq where ISIS has made recent, unnerving military gains”Advisers aren’t going to just train Iraqi forces. Advisers are going to lead the newly trained Sunni militia men from Anbar province. That training had begun last year
Flashback to this previous post: Sleight of Hand: US reaches out to "awakening councils
“The Obama administration is reaching back to an Iraq War programme as a guide to keep disgruntled Sunnis from joining a rampant new insurgency. US officials hope to persuade Sunni militiamen known as Sahwa, or Awakening Councils, to fight back against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant as they did nearly 10 years ago against Al Qaida.”Except Obama wasn’t reaching back, to reconnect. As explained in that previous post, because, he had always been in touch with these Sunni militia men of Anbar. We can connect him with the Sunni fighters of Anbar province in 2008- That’s 7 years ago, my friends. 7 years ago.......
"When George W. Bush visited Iraq in September 2007, my host on my tour of Fallujah, Sheik Aifan, was delighted to meet him. Bush, he claimed, was "very smart and a brother." During the summer of 2008, he would meet Barack Obama as well. When asked what he thought of Obama, he told Richard Rowley, "U.S. foreign policy tends not to change with a new president"The Shiek was correct! US foreign policy doesn't change and didn't change one iota with the "hope and change" selection of the first black president of the US, Obama.
Anbar province? What is so very interesting about Anbar province in Irq?
Why it’s the birthplace of ISIS!! That is not a coincidence. And I am not a coincidence theorist
Reading two previous posts, I will relink below, are crucial to understanding that Obama is repeating what was done previously- There isn’t anything new in this strategy.
I’m going to explain this plan in as short and sweet a fashion, as possible:
Approximately 10 years ago, the Bush administration used the Sahwa or Awakening Councils allegedly to reign in Al quaeda- All that really happened was Al Quaeda melded into the Awakening council/Sahwa or Sunni militias. That’s it. A straight up morphing into the pot sweetened with all sorts of power/money deals. This is covered in the two posts linked below from last year
ISIS rises up out of the ashes of the U.S.-led invasion to oust Saddam Hussein as al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI)
"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."
The point I am making at this time?
As there was no difference then between the Sunni militiamen and AQ then, there is no difference between these Sunni militia men and the rebranded AQ, which is ISIL or ISIS now.
Therefore If Obama is ‘reaching back’ to these same groups that originated in Anbar to fight the pretext that is ISIS, what is actually happening or will be happening very soon is WIDER WAR in region!
“The plan calls for upwards of 500 more advisers to augment the 3,000 U.S. troops in Iraq now, reports CBS News chief White House correspondent Major Garrett. All of the troops would remain under the same tight guidelines -- no front line advising or intelligence gathering -- to minimize the risk of combat deaths or capture”
Mr. Obama said Iraq must provide more recruits and use the 8,000 trained forces more effectively to reverse ISIS gains in the Sunni strongholds of Ramadi and Fallujah
So 500 advisers + 3,000 US troops + 8,000 previously trained forces + Kurdish Forces, unsure of numbers there + NATO forces + Useful idiots as cannon fodder dragged in from NATO nations = boots on the ground for a wider war.
Yes, Kurdish forces supported by NATO airstrikes! After all Kurdish forces under whichever brand name, Peshmerga, YPG, have been supported by NATO all along.
CBS article: “Mr. Obama also said his emerging strategy needs to reduce the flow of foreign fighters and new efforts are to begin on the border between Syria and Turkey to use Kurdish fighters and U.S. airstrikes to deter new ISIS recruits from joining the fight.”So we have our pretext for the wider war - deterring ISIS recruits from joining the fight? Stemming the flow of new recruits coming in via Turkey. Let’s chat about the fighters coming into Syria via Turkey very briefly?
Who is allowing the fighters into Syria? Obviously not the Syrian government because they have long lost control of most of the border crossings
Shall we take a gander at whose controlling the border crossings? Or let me make it easier for all of us to understand- Syria controls only ONE batch of open border crossings. Just one border with one nation. That sole, Syrian controlled, open border crossing is shared with Lebanon.
Al the rest of the border crossings have been closed by Turkey or are controlled by the Kurds or ISIS- So, who is letting foreign fighters into Syria? The KurdIShIS fighters- Controlled at the top by NATO- (Briefly- Yes, the deluded Erdogan was involved with the destabilization of Syria- drunk with power he believed he was an equal- He was mistaken. I believe we have moved past the time where Turkey's elected government is fully participatory- keeping in mind the deep state- gladio etc)
Only Border Syrian Regime Still Controls is with Lebanon
Of Syria's 19 border posts with Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, and Turkey, government forces now control just seven -- five with Lebanon, and two more, both closed, with TurkeyThe article goes through each border crossing and who is in control of it. The only change from the above linked news is at Tal Abyad: Which is now Kurdish controlled as they 'took' it from ISIS.
As so often happens---but not because the Kurds are such strong fighters, most often because ISIS just retreats- I can't imagine why ;)
Considering the border crossing news, we have to realize that almost all anti- Syrian fighters entering Syria have been allowed in by ISIS/L or the Kurds- Or as like to call the NATO/US unified group of Sunni Muslim fighters KurdIShIS
The only ones continuing to spread the 'blame the Turkish' government meme, presently, is the NATO media and the disingenuous NATO allied Kurds
So here we have the NATO affiliated Sunni Muslim Kurdishis fighters controlling the border of Turkey & Syria presently being supported by US air power? Dare I say soon to be supported by ever bigger NATO airpower in order to create a “No fly zone for Peace”
To save lives, alleviate the refugee crisis, and bring about a peaceful transition in Syria, the most practical, feasible step is a no-fly zone (NFZ).Since when has there ever been a no fly zone for peace! Do you wanna talk Orwellian double speak, sheesh!!!!!
As was mentioned yesterday the aerial raids of the US, in partnership with the NATO allied Kurds, are being used to ethnically cleanse northern Syria of Syrian civilians to create the NATO contrived Kurdistan. Is the US Complicit in Ethnic Cleansing in Syria? Yes, Obviously!
Considering this from September 30/2014 :White House- Kill Syrian/Iraqi Civilians- Exemption for airstrikes
The White House has acknowledged for the first time that strict standards President Obama imposed last year to prevent civilian deaths from U.S. drone strikes will not apply to U.S. military operations in Syria and Iraq.
The no fly zone for peace meme suggests a cleansing is definitely in the offing. The US will not apply any standards what so ever to prevent civilian deaths in Iraq or Syria. This will extend to Turkey in short order.
With one “no fly zone for peace” stone how many metaphorical birds are to be taken out ?
Destroy Iraq. Destroy Syria. Destroy Turkey. Create an artificially contrived Kurdistan based on the ancient Assyrian lands. Foment a wider war engulfing the entire region. Taking in Saudi Arabia, Jordan etc., empowering Israel, allowing Israel to steal more land- See: Israeli Minister calls on World to Recognize Golan Annexation
Everything a banker/ war monger/ military industrialist complex misery inducing industry loves...
Check, check, check !!!!
Eventually the no fly zone will be expanded into Turkish territory.
Two reasons will be given. Stop ISIS terrorists- get them before they get us. "Protect" Kurds. It's a well worn meme, very broadly implanted, so it can easily be used yet again to convince the populace of the absolute need for this desired wider war
Obama and company are laying the groundwork for the “big war” in the Middle East- The one that will go down in the lie filled history books as “The Great Sunni-Shia War” This is the war we are all supposed to believe is the worst case scenario. But it isn’t. It’s exactly the war that has been planned for.This truly IS NOT about fighting ISIS.
McClatchy-Mideast’s worst case: A ‘big war’ pitting Shia Muslims against Sunni
“The Middle East crisis that peaked one year ago Wednesday when the Islamic State captured Mosul may result in the breakup of Iraq and an indefinite continuation of a war in Syria that’s already out of control, analysts say.
Yah, the taking of Mosul- Who were the beneficiaries from that incident? The fall of Mosul. Who benefits and who does not. Updated!
Surely not Iraq, as the US took their elected leader out! Recall? Maliki stands down- US Regime change accomplished via ISIS terror proxy
“Yet still worse things could happen”
“The conditions are very much like 1914,” says Michael Stephens of the Royal United Service Institute in London. “All it will take is one little spark, and Iran and Saudi Arabia will go at each other, believing they are fighting a defensive war.”
Gee, who might ignite that spark? Dumdeedumdeedum........Israel
Hiwa Osman, an Iraqi Kurdish commentator, was even more blunt: “The whole region is braced for the big war, the war that has not yet happened, the Shiite-Sunni war.”Keeping in mind the Sunni Muslim Kurds are all ready to participate in that big war!
The Shiite Sunni war.
It’s been playing out all over the place. Kurds and ISIS, both being Sunni, already aligned, killing cleansing the landscape of Shiites, Christians and non cooperative Sunni’s.
But this is NOT really a Sunni/Shia war!: This is an order out of chaos, profiteering, plundering war. However- The meme is planted "The Shiite- Sunni war"! That's going to be the presentation.
It’s convenient to keep the narrative simple for the gullible. It's easier to present this planned for and desired war, redrawing borders, profiteering in the typical black vs white sort of scenario of Sunni vs Shia- we've been being prepped for this narrative for some time now.
If the US/Israel/NATO psychopaths didn’t want the ‘big war’ to happen, they would have stopped training rebels. Stopped arming rebels. Stopped training Kurds. Stopped arming Kurds. These nations, including Canada would not have dropped weapons to ISIS. Would have stopped recruiting fighters through domestic intelligence agencies. Wouldn't have carried out numerous false flags to justify their war agenda-( Thinking here of Canada & the Ottawa shooting) Step by step the NATO nations, alongside Israel have built this worst case scenario into a reality. And it will get worse, it will expand, by design. (NATO design)
Turkey: It’s in NATO’s crosshairs. Balkanization.
It’s been a topic here since last year....
Hat tip to James@ winterpatriot who left this article earlier in the week from Eric Draitser-
"With tensions high over escalations in Ukraine and the South China Sea, the potential for global conflict has never been higher. Those who trade in doomsday prognostication are certainly busy these days. But perhaps it is Syria and the Middle East where the true global conflict is taking place.
The question is: has anyone noticed?"
