50.000 people demonstrated against the austerity measures in the UK (while 3 kitchen Kate tears out kitchens priced at about twice an average annual income from her new palaces renovated and paid for by the tax payer) right in front of the BBC headquarters. The mayor of London bought three water cannons and the chief of police wants to add UV paint to it to be able to find them rabblerousers after they have been hit with the water cannons.
The smouldering anger under the populations of European countries and deteriorating possibilities of the small people to actually make a living in an exhausted world is beginning to scare the rich and I am not talking about the “just rich” but the super rich.
In fact some of them are actually trying to tell their fellow zillionaires that it is getting very dangerous.
So what to do?
Enter ISIS. Enter the Calliphate and the murderous thugs with the crazy religion, hell bend on beheading and crucifying all and sunder who doesn’t subscribe to their vision of the world, God and the Universe. Enter quite possibly car bombs in the streets of Europe when the chooks come home to roost. At least that is what the mainstream media wants you to think.
But do you really think that thousands of well armed men trained by the US in long 5 km long colones of brand spanking new Toyota’s could take the oil fields of Mosul just like that? Do you really think that with all those satellites capable of close ups of every nook and cranny of this planet and GPS capability to find Tony Veitch every time he threatens suicide are incapable to intercept the necessary communication gear needed to keep the actions of the ISIS murderers synchronized?
I didn’t think so and you would be in good company.
Historian award-winning geopolitical analyst and strategic risk consultant William Engdahl has this to say about it:
For days now, since their dramatic June 10 taking of Mosul, Western mainstream media have been filled with horror stories of the military conquests in Iraq of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, with the curious acronym ISIS.
ISIS, as in the ancient Egyptian cult of the goddess of fertility and magic. The media picture being presented adds up less and less.
Details leaking out suggest that ISIS and the major military ‘surge’ in Iraq – and less so in neighboring Syria – is being shaped and controlled out of Langley, Virginia, and other CIA and Pentagon outposts as the next stage in spreading chaos in the world’s second-largest oil state, Iraq, as well as weakening the recent Syrian stabilization efforts.
The very details of the ISIS military success in the key Iraqi oil center, Mosul, are suspect. According to well-informed Iraqi journalists, ISIS overran the strategic Mosul region, site of some of the world’s most prolific oilfields, with barely a shot fired in resistance. According to one report, residents of Tikrit reported remarkable displays of “soldiers handing over their weapons and uniforms peacefully to militants who ordinarily would have been expected to kill government soldiers on the spot.”
We are told that ISIS masked psychopaths captured “arms and ammunition from the fleeing security forces” – arms and ammunition supplied by the American government. The offensive coincides with a successful campaign by ISIS in eastern Syria. According to Iraqi journalists, Sunni tribal chiefs in the region had been convinced to side with ISIS against the Shiite Al-Maliki government in Baghdad. They were promised a better deal under ISIS Sunni Sharia than with Baghdad anti-Sunni rule.
According to the New York Times, the mastermind behind the ISIS military success is former Baath Party head and Saddam Hussein successor, General Ibrahim al-Douri. Douri is reportedly the head of the Iraqi rebel group Army of the Men of the Naqshbandi Order as well as the Supreme Command for Jihad and Liberation based on his longstanding positions of leadership in the Naqshbandi sect in Iraq.
In 2009, US ‘Iraqi surge’ General David Petraeus, at the time heading the US Central Command, claimed to reporters that Douri was in Syria. Iraqi parliamentarians claimed he was in Qatar. The curious fact is that despite being on the US most wanted list since 2003, Douri has miraculously managed to avoid capture and now to return with a vengeance to retake huge parts of Sunni Iraq. Luck or well-placed friends in Washington?
The financial backing for ISIS jihadists reportedly also comes from three of the closest US allies in the Sunni world—Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
Key members of ISIS it now emerges were trained by US CIA and Special Forces command at a secret camp in Jordan in 2012, according to informed Jordanian officials. The US, Turkish and Jordanian intelligence were running a training base for the Syrian rebels in the Jordanian town of Safawi in the country’s northern desert region, conveniently near the borders to both Syria and Iraq. Saudi Arabia and Qatar, the two Gulf monarchies most involved in funding the war against Syria’s Assad, financed the Jordan ISIS training.
