The Destruction and Political Fragmentation of Iraq. Towards the Creation of a US Sponsored Islamist Caliphate

The Destruction and Political Fragmentation of Iraq. Towards the Creation of a US Sponsored Islamist Caliphate

The Western
media in chorus have described the unfolding
conflict in Iraq as a “civil war” opposing the
Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham
against the Armed forces of the Al-Maliki
government.




(Also referred
to as Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) or
Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS))




The conflict
is casually described as “sectarian warfare” between
Radical Sunni and Shia without addressing
“who is behind the various factions”. 
What
is at stake is a carefully staged US
military-intelligence agenda.



Known and
documented, Al Qaeda affiliated entities have been
used by US-NATO in numerous conflicts as
“intelligence assets” since the heyday of the
Soviet-Afghan war. In Syria, the Al Nusrah and ISIS
rebels are the foot-soldiers of the Western military
alliance, which oversees and controls the
recruitment and training of paramilitary forces.



The Al
Qaeda affiliated Islamic State of Iraq (ISI)
re-emerged in April 2013 with a different name and
acronym, commonly referred to as the Islamic State
of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). The formation of a
terrorist entity encompassing both Iraq and Syria
was part of a US intelligence agenda. It responded
to geopolitical objectives. It also coincided with
the advances of Syrian government forces against the
US sponsored insurgency in Syria and the failures of
both the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and its various
“opposition” terror brigades.

Nir Rosen: Gaza: Israel, Hamas and the logic of colonial power | Comment is free | guardian.co.uk: "I have spent most of the Bush administration's tenure reporting from Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Somalia and other conflicts. I have been published by most major publications. I have been interviewed by most major networks and I have even testified before the senate foreign relations committee. The Bush administration began its tenure with Palestinians being massacred and it ends with Israel committing one of its largest massacres yet in a 60-year history of occupying Palestinian land. Bush's final visit to the country he chose to occupy ended with an educated secular Shiite Iraqi throwing his shoes at him, expressing the feelings of the entire Arab world save its dictators who have imprudently attached themselves to a hated American regime."

Only four days
after his public defense of torture and “a hell of a
lot worse” in US military-intelligence
interrogations, billionaire Donald Trump added
assassination to his foreign policy arsenal as well.
Speaking Wednesday on the “CBS This Morning”
program, Trump said that his solution to the US
conflict with North Korea over its nuclear weapons
program would be to eliminate North Korean leader
Kim Jong-un.


“I would
get China to make that guy disappear in one form or
another very quickly,” Trump told interviewer Norah
O’Donnell. When she followed up by asking if that
meant having Kim Jong-un assassinated, Trump
replied, “Well, I’…

'Birth defects' from Israeli bombs

Israeli bombardment of the Gaza Strip in 2006 and last winter have left a high concentration of toxic metals in its soil, according to the findings of a weapons research group made up of independent doctors and scientists based in Italy.

Doctors in Gaza believe the toxic wastes, along with the trauma of war, is the reason they're seeing a high number of babies with birth defects.
