US allies cultivated Islamic State. Now IS plans to 'raise flag of Allah in White House'



As the Islamic State tears through minority communities in northern Iraq, the extremist terror group, that owes its ascendance to funding from US allies in the Middle East, sent a message to the White House: We’re coming for you.

“I say to America that the Islamic Caliphate has been established,” Abu Mosa, a spokesman for the Islamic State (IS), formerly know as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), told VICE Media. “Don’t be cowards and attack us with drones. Instead send your soldiers, the ones we humiliated in Iraq."

“We will humiliate them everywhere, God willing, and we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House,” Mosa added.

On Thursday, in response to gains made by IS in Iraq, US President Barack Obama ordered airstrikes on IS targets to help protect Christians and Yazidis, a Kurdish religious sect in northern Iraq.

Rear Admiral John Kirby, a Pentagon spokesman, said airstrikes took place to help defend Kurdish forces near Erbil, Iraq. Two F/A-18 aircraft dropped 500-pound laser-guided bombs on a mobile artillery piece.

"The decision to strike was made by the US Central Command commander under authorization granted him by the commander in chief," Kirby said. US personnel are also based in the city.

In addition to the strikes, Obama called for humanitarian supplies to be airdropped to stranded Yazidi refugees. Around 40,000 Yazidis - whose religious beliefs are a mix of ancient Zoroastrianism, Islam, and Christianity - sought refuge on Mount Sinjar last weekend after Islamic State fighters continued their march toward Erbil. Iraqi officials say more than 500 men were killed by the Al-Qaeda offshoot, and many more, including dozens of children, have died since fleeing Sinjar, a remote area void of nourishment or resources.

But while the Islamic terror group du jour rips through Iraq - largely forcing minorities to choose its brand of strict Islam, flee, or die - observers note that it’s important to remember how IS has gained strength from the financial backing of United States’ allies in the Middle East, including Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Qatar.

Elite donors of American allies in the Persian Gulf region have poured an immense amount of resources into rebel groups like IS in efforts to advance on three general goals: opposing Iran, its ally Bashar Assad and his government in Syria, and fomenting the Sunni-Shia divides in the region.

IS, formerly allied with Al-Qaeda before splitting with them last year, has benefited from Gulf funding of rebel groups opposed to Assad in the Syrian civil war, as several reports have detailed, paving the way for the Islamic State to advance over the border into Iraq, where it has captured major gains such as Mosul, the second-largest city in Iraq.

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al Maliki has publicly accused Saudi Arabia and Qatar, both Sunni-led nations, of ongoing financial support for IS.

In Kuwait, donors have successfully funneled hundreds of millions of dollars to rebel militias in Syria.

“Over the last two and a half years, Kuwait has emerged as a financing and organizational hub for charities and individuals supporting Syria’s myriad rebel groups,” the Washington think tank Brookings Institution wrote in a December report.

“Today, there is evidence that Kuwaiti donors have backed rebels who have committed atrocities and who are either directly linked to al-Qa’ida or cooperate with its affiliated brigades on the ground.”

The United States has also supported so-called “moderate” Syrian rebels with both lethal and non-lethal aid, lending to fears that arms sent with the help of the Gulf states were channeled to the likes of IS.

39US intervention in Iraq laid the groundwork for ISIS to develop39 - YouTube



A situation in which the US offers both direct and indirect support to groups fighting common foes one day, only to find that the groups will later leverage such aid, including weaponry, against the US and allies calls to mind the rise of the Taliban in Afghanistan, to name one example. There, the US long backed mujahideen guerilla fighters, including Osama bin Laden, in their war against the invading Soviet Union army from 1979 to 1989.

Once Soviet Union forces left Afghanistan, these "freedom fighters," as they were known by the Reagan administration, fought one another in a fierce civil war, leading to conditions that brought about the Saudi-supported Taliban rule.

In addition, Western incursions in the region, namely the 2003 invasion of Iraq that ushered in a brutal sectarian war that still divides the country today, have led to extreme instability, creating a power vacuum for militant groups to fill.

Brian Becker, an anti-war campaigner with the ANSWER coalition, told RT that the United States and its allies must take some of the blame for the rise of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

"It was the intervention of the United States in Iraq and the US and its partners in Syria, which laid the groundwork for the ISIS organization to develop. In 2010-2011, remember they said they carried out six actions in the whole year," he said.

"They were practically defunct until the United States and its allies supported the armed opposition inside Syria and gave an opportunity to this organization to develop and come back into Iraq," Becker added.

Why would ANYONE allow it?

The effects of years of the Western world's left-wing Ruling Establishment's fawning, deferential, acquiescent attitude to Muslims and all things Islam, laying upon Islam protected species status like no other religion has, are now starting to appear. The fact that a barbaric, murderous, bigoted organisation like ISIS are now planting their flags in London housing estates and in the heart of the US government is all the fault of the left's craven attitude to Islamofascism.

Coming to a site near you:

ISIS IS EVERYWHERE!


So far, we've seen several threads with news of ISIS in London, Mexican border, NYC, Washington DC - where next?

Texas? the Sunbelt? your backyard??

First it was the commies under McCarthy. Then it was the Black Panthers under Hoover. Then it was al-Qaeda. There was a commie, BP, or AQ in every street corner, in every pulpit, in every lecture hall, in every closet, and under every bed. Soon, this is what deluded right wingers will be saying about ISIS.


ISIS, ISIS, here, there, and everywhere!

YOU WANT NAZIS??

There have been Christians in Mosul for just shy of two millennia, since the first century. There are none today (external - login to view).
The Yazidi are practitioners of Kurdistan's oldest religion, fire-worshippers whose presence in the region predates Islam. They're either being executed or starved to death on a mountain (external - login to view):
We are being slaughtered. Our entire religion is being wiped off the face of the earth.
ISIS are fast-track Nazis. No messing about with a few property restrictions and intermarriage laws as a little light warm-up: They're only in the business of "final solutions", and they start on Day One and don't quit until the last Christian and Yazidi is dead or fled. As I've often remarked about today's exhaustively cleansed Maghreb, Levant and Araby, Islam is king on a field of corpses. But pikers like the Muslim Brotherhood, the Baathists, the House of Saud take their time. ISIS are shooting for the Guinness Book of Records.
Fortunately, progressive opinion in the west hates Jews more than it loves Christians or Yazidi or Shia or Kurds, so ISIS can get on with killing everyone they want to kill. George Packer reports in The New Yorker (external - login to view):
Karim couldn't help expressing bitterness about this. "I don't see any attention from the rest of the world," he said. "In one day, they killed more than two thousand Yazidi in Sinjar, and the whole world says, 'Save Gaza, save Gaza.' "
Indeed. But you have to pick your causes. To put pressure on Netanyahu, you fly in John Kerry to bore him to death. To put pressure on ISIS would require a commitment the west is not willing to make. So Christians will vanish from the region, and the Yazidi will vanish from the world.
As much as Americans might wish it were so, this is not just a story of one bunch of obscure foreigners sticking it to another bunch of obscure foreigners. It's also a story of a dying superpower betraying its friends in retreat:
An engineer and a father of three young children, Karim spent years working for the U.S. Army in his area, then for an American medical charity. He's been waiting for months to find out whether the U.S. government will grant him a Special Immigrant Visa because of his service, and because of the danger he currently faces.
Good luck with that. America's depraved immigration bureaucracy is too busy organizing teddy bears for gangbangers at the southern border and terrorizing bagpipers at the northern borders (external - login to view). So how did helping out the Americans work out for Karim?
Karim had time to do just one thing: burn all the documents that connected him to America—photos of him posing with Army officers, a CD from the medical charity—in case he was stopped on the road by militants or his house was searched. He watched the record of his experience during the period of the Americans in Iraq turn to ash, and felt nothing except the urge to get to safety.
Perhaps it's just as well we're so bad at "winning hearts and minds". We won Karim's heart and mind - and then ran over it in the stampede for the exits. A few weeks ago I quoted Prince Sirik Matak, the former Cambodian Prime Minister, shortly before his murder by the Khmer Rouge (external - login to view):
Mark it well that, if I shall die here on the spot and in my country that I love, it is too bad because we are all born and must die one day. I have only committed the mistake of believing in you, the Americans.
On the lam, trying to keep one step ahead of ISIS, Karim can be forgiven for coming to the same bleak conclusion. In that column, I also cited Bernard Lewis from a few years back and his prescient warning that America risked being seen as harmless as an enemy, treacherous as a friend.
The bad news is that harmlessness will attract more enemies. The good news is there will be fewer friends left to betray.
~I'm still hopping mad about the US Government's bagpipe crackdown (external - login to view). The international piping scene is basically Scotland, Canada and the north-eastern US. On the Atlantic seaboard, it's a cross-border community. Yet since the end of June the official position of the United States Government is that, if someone from northern New Hampshire competes in a bagpipe championship in Quebec, he cannot take his pipes through any US/Canadian land border crossing. So instead of a pleasant three-hour drive from Montreal back to New Hampshire, he has to fly from Montreal to Boston and then drive all the way back, more than doubling the time and vastly increasing the cost.
That's an unacceptable burden to impose on a free people - and, if Americans were as free as all the songs and T-shirt slogans claim, it would not even be entertained.
As I said yesterday, under the insanity of America's hyper-regulatory tyranny, you now have to register musical instruments with the US Department of Fish & Wildlife.
And, even if you do, you still can't drive that instrument over a US/Canadian land border.
Aside from anything else, this will kill the annual Highland Games at Loon Mountain, New Hampshire. I'm already hearing that Scots and Canadians don't want to take the risk of losing beloved family heirlooms to the gauleiters of Customs & Border Protection.
This is how liberty dies, with a thousand cuts, day after day after day. Bill Clinton famously said, "The age of Big Government is over". And in a sense he's right: This is an age of small, itsy-bitsy teeny-weeny government, in which nothing is too inconsequential and trivial not to command the attention of the federal enforcers - until, cumulatively, all the itsy-bitsy teeny-weeny government adds up to the biggest government ever seen.
Where is America's so-called party of small government on this stuff? When are the Republican Party's leaders going to pipe up?

Musical instruments registered? I don't know where that misinformation comes from. The reason you might have trouble bringing one over the border is because Canada has banned Brazilian rosewood. They are not banned in the US. I have purchased instruments from the US (not Brazilian rosewood), one six years ago and one this year, and never had an issue with getting them over the border.

The problem these days is extremist nuts on blogs rant about anything and everything, even when there is no sign of truth to be found, and people just eat it up and join the hater's cult.

I can't be the only one that sees that these people are being fed meth and heroin. I see what people on my streets will do for it. Chemical hubris fed with lies of riches and distorted Islam and a leadership that knows the way a jibrat mind can be rewired in a week for less than $20.

It what the local gangs do to recruit street warriors and hookers.

You can keep someone awake for 4 days for $10 and put them to sleep on $10 of heroin.

Man-made global warming appears to be a fantasy, as there has been no GW in almost 20 years.

When Islam has quit murdering by the thousand for 20 years, when Canadians !!! are not getting attacked on the streets for flying an Israeli flag or the crime of being Jewish, then I might be convinced there is some parallel.

“Thank God for the Saudis and Prince Bandar,” John McCain told (external - login to view) CNN’s Candy Crowley in January 2014. “Thank God for the Saudis and Prince Bandar, and for our Qatari friends,” the senator said once again a month later, at the Munich Security Conference.


McCain was praising Prince Bandar bin Sultan, then the head of Saudi Arabia’s intelligence services and a former ambassador to the United States, for supporting forces fighting Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria. McCain and Senator Lindsey Graham had previously met (external - login to view) with Bandar to encourage the Saudis to arm Syrian rebel forces.




The Free Syrian Army (FSA), the “moderate” armed opposition in the country, receives a lot of attention. But two of the most successful factions fighting Assad’s forces are Islamist extremist groups: Jabhat al-Nusra and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (external - login to view) (ISIS), the latter of which is now amassing territory (external - login to view) in Iraq and threatening to further destabilize (external - login to view) the entire region. And that success is in part due to the support they have received from two Persian Gulf countries: Qatar and Saudi Arabia.


Qatar’s military and economic largesse has made its way to Jabhat al-Nusra, to the point that a senior Qatari official told me he can identify al-Nusra commanders by the blocks they control in various Syrian cities. But ISIS is another matter. As one senior Qatari official stated, “ISIS has been a Saudi project.”


ISIS, in fact, may have been a major part of Bandar’s covert-ops strategy in Syria. The Saudi government, for its part, has denied (external - login to view) allegations, including claims made by Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, that it has directly supported ISIS. But there are also signs that the kingdom recently shifted its assistance—whether direct or indirect—away from extremist factions in Syria and toward more moderate opposition groups.

ISIS Circulating Photo with McCain As Proof of Their Legitimacy













Remember when Senator John McCain went to Syria and met with factions of rebels fighting the Assad regime?


As it turns out, the group that he was meeting with was a particular subset of rebels in Syria, who we now know as ISIS.


That’s right, the very same terrorist group ISIS which is carrying out ruthless acts of terror and crime in Iraq as we speak, was who McCain was meeting with in Syria.


When the Arizona senator got back from his trip to Syria, he said…


“It was a very moving experience to meet these fighters who have been struggling now for over two years,” McCain said on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360”.


“And they’re very aware of the battlefield situation” the Arizona senator continued, “and they’re very disturbed about the dramatic influx of Hezbollah fighters, more Iranians, and of course, stepped-up activities of Bashar Assad.”

Republicans made lots of political capital out of the story behind Obama being associated with "radical terrorists" such as Bill Ayers and Frank Marshall Davis. But when news of McCain being associated with radicals such ISIS, Reagan with the Mujahideen or with self acknowledged terrorists such as the Contras nobody dares take issue with it. Right wingers on this forum had a field day attacking Obama for his friendship with those leftists. If they were consistent in their principles they should do the same with Reagan and McCain.

It is true that the Saudis are the most suppressive autocrats anywhere and have been responsible for fomenting more trouble than anyone else. But when I posted pics of Bush kissing up to the Saudi king right wingers on this forum hated it. Again, they love to mention Obama's past association with the left. But none like it when people mention Bush or Reagan and their long association with radicals and promoters of terrorism from the right.

When President Obama announced US airstrikes in Iraq, most observers understood that the US would be bombing members of ISIS. What many did not know was that, in a twist of such bitterly symbolic irony that it could only occur in the Middle East, the US would also be bombing hundreds of millions of dollars worth of American military equipment.


Here's why: in the decade since the 2003 US-led Iraq invasion, the US has spent a fortune training and arming the Iraqi army in the hopes of readying it to secure the country once America left. That meant arming the Iraqi army with high-tech and extremely expensive American-made guns, tanks, jeeps, artillery, and more.


But the Iraqi army has been largely a failure. When ISIS invaded northern Iraq from Syria in June, the Iraqi forces deserted or retreated en masse. Many of them abandoned their American equipment. ISIS scooped it up themselves and are now using it to rampage across Iraq, seizing whole cities, terrorizing minorities, and finally pushing into even once-secure Kurdish territory. All with shiny American military equipment.


So the US air strikes against ISIS are in part to destroy US military equipment, such as the artillery ISIS has been using against Kurdish forces.


The absurdity runs deep: America is using American military equipment to bomb other pieces of American military equipment halfway around the world. The reason the American military equipment got there in the first place was because, in 2003, the US had to use its military to rebuild the Iraqi army, which it just finished destroying with the American military. The American weapons the US gave the Iraqi army totally failed at making Iraq secure and have become tools of terror used by an offshoot of al-Qaeda to terrorize the Iraqis that the US supposedly liberated a decade ago. And so now the US has to use American weaponry to destroy the American weaponry it gave Iraqis to make Iraqis safer, in order to make Iraqis safer.




It keeps going:
