    In a story reverberating across the world, last week award winning journalist and scholar Dr. Nafeez Ahmed exposed startling information about U.S. complicity in the creation and rise of ISIS, as contained in a recently declassified Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) report.

    Possibly more terrifying than the report itself may be the fact that this information has been virtually blacked out across global mainstream media.

    This silence speaks volumes as to the weight of this information. It illustrates the complicity of the English-speaking media, in collusion with government, to keep people ignorant of the harsh realities of U.S. style realpolitik.


    official MintPress sponsor

    The stunning report, dated August 2012, proved that the growth and expansion of ISIS was a direct result of arms being sent by the U.S. to anti-Assad Islamists, with the strategic U.S. intention of toppling the Assad regime in Syria.

    The report stated, “major forces driving the insurgency in Syria” comprise “the Salafist, the Muslim Brotherhood, and AQI [al-Qaeda in Iraq], showing explicitly what elements were providing the true velocity of the insurgency.

    Although the U.S. has held to the official line that only moderate rebels are being armed in Syria, figures such as Presidential candidate Rand Paul stating that “war hawks” in congress were responsible for the rise of ISIS, to Vice President Joe Biden stating (start at 1:30:00), that there were no “moderate rebels,” say otherwise.

    “The secret Pentagon document provides extraordinary confirmation that the US-led coalition currently fighting ISIS, had three years ago welcomed the emergence of an extremist ‘Salafist Principality’ in the region as a way to undermine Assad,” Ahmed said.

    In an interview with Josh Cook of Truth In Media, Ahmed stated:

    “I spoke to a major national newspaper here in the U.K. and what was interesting was they were quite sympathetic to the line of inquiry, but just felt like they couldn’t cover it. And it wasn’t that they were told they couldn’t cover it. The journalist that I spoke to who is a senior journalist that I have a lot of respect for was very sympathetic to what I was saying. He literally said to me look – I actually could sense that there was this fear that I shouldn’t be talking about this, this is going to far – is the document really strong enough? He didn’t feel confident.

    “There is almost like an unspoken recognition I think in the mainstream media that there are certain things we are not allowed to say. The idea that something as despicable as ISIS could actually been foreseen or facilitated deliberately, which is really what is implied by this report quite clearly.

    “It’s almost too much,” he said. “It goes against the grain of so much we take for granted. So many assumptions about not just American, but Western kind of supremacy and the benevolence of our government that we would never do anything like this … it’s a big kind of leap.

    “On the one hand I think that journalists are scared and worried about pushing boundaries to that extent. It does raise a concern that there is an absolute silence on this issue, especially in the English speaking media. It raises real questions about what is behind that silence?”

    People have a right to be informed about the undertakings of a government operating in their name and the press has a duty to expose that which is intentionally obscured from the view of the public by those in power.

    When the press is afraid or complicit in hiding these facts from the American public, then we, as a nation, are in a much greater danger than anything ISIS presents.

    Please share this story to help get this vital information out to as many people as possible, as people deserve to know what actions their governments undertake in their name!

        Any one could see that the ineffective bombings, the dropped stolen weapons and ammunition, possibly even their Toyotas were supplied by the good ol’ USA. It has never been about anything other than removing Assad ANY WAY POSSIBLE! And yet they back the Kurds, who are deliberately put in harms way by fighting the enemy ISIS that we created. Is this any surprise when we have left or abandoned the Sunnis more than once in favor of setting up what we thought would be a Shia puppet? Someone who added more firepower to the rank and file of ISIS when they were ostracized by him? The dirty tactics, tricks, and lies of our global corpocracy never cease to amaze the sheeple.

Our entire two-party system is designed to make us think we have a choice. We don’t. We are powerless. They all work for the same people.

        You know we wouldn’t even be hearing about this if it weren’t for the refugees in Europe. Liberals don’t believe in war, therefore it is not a reality for them unless it is on their doorstep. Refugees however concern them. So, now that there are refugees the lies that the white house has been spreading are becoming fairly obvious. Thanks to our Jihadi in Chief Obama.

        • John Snow

          Started before Obama. Blame Bush Sr. Even if Obama wanted to stop it do you think the elected official would stop it? I mean they all own the Military Industrial sector.

          • OHDisqusNSA666100

            Which obscure radical Democrat was willing to talk about how Bush and Petraeus were using this “Salvadoran Plan for Iraq”, or option or whatever. By the way nobody is bragging about how successful the Salvadoran style for Iraq is going to be – they now deny they ever even thought about it. In any case, it was obvious then that the thing was a ruse to funnel money TO Al Qaida, and no DEMOCRATS said anything, because it would go against faith in govt, god what a weak excuse.
            Now, a Democrat in the White House is helping the terrorists who attacked us on 911, and the Republicans won’t say anything. It’s interesting that the Republicans do not cite “faith in govt” as their excuse to not press Obama for what his policy of supporting moderate extremists, has done.

        • dano2112a

          It is not that Liberals don’t believe in war. They know it exists, and that they are fought for the wrong reason. The generation of huge profit margins and dividend checks.

        As if the media isn’t the owned mouth of Corporate war machine which released this so called “story” they didn’t cover it because that’s how it was meant to appear.
        The release is meant to make us believe that they’re disclosing the truth and transparent about isis so we’re to trust them. However it all boils down to UN’s Agenda21 depopulation and the complete control of the masses.

        The US, intent on supporting rebels against oppressive regimes, decided on lending aid. unfortunately, the power vacuum caused by the fallen regimes, plus the influx of new weapons led to islamist factions to gain power.

            That is irrelevant. Before ISIS, even in 2004-2005, there was Al Qaida in Mesopotamia.
            It is really disgusting how you try to deceive us. The problem began BEFORE the withdraw, it started almost immediately after Bush invaded and overthrew the Iraqi Baathists in 2003. Because Al Qaida in Mesopotamia came back in 2004-2005, and it all goes back to 1970s Afghanistan and the jihadis who went there from the Middle East, some would say with help from Reagan Bush Carter Kissinger Brzinski and the CIA and you know that!

        A Brief History of “ISIS”

        It’s not “an Islamic state”. It’s “Islamic State”. That is what they call themselves. They stopped calling themselves Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) or Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) a long time ago. They don’t like the title Daesh (Daeech, Daiish, et cetera…it’s Arabic so it is spelled many different ways in the Latin alphabet) which is why Muslims who oppose them prefer to call them that.

        EIIL is the French acronym for the old name that included Iraq and the Levant. Etat Islamique (French) or Islamic State (English) or ad-Dawla al-Islāmiyya (Arabic in in the Latin alphabet) or الدولة الإسلامية (Arabic) is what they call their “Caliphate” now. Islamic State sees themselves as the Caliphate not as a mere terrorist group. They see themselves as the leaders of true Islam (whatever that means) and the empire of the global Ummah. This is why Muslims who oppose them refuse to call them by their official name which is simply “Islamic State”.

        Before they entered Syria from Iraq they were “Islamic State in Iraq” (ISI) and before that they were known in the international press as “al Qaeda in Iraq” which was the primary Sunni militant group responsible for the majority of Iraqi civilian deaths and killings of US and Iraqi troops after the fall of Saddam Hussein.

        “Al Qaeda in Iraq” was what Abu Musab al-Zarqawi’s Jama’at al-Tawhid wal-Jihad (founded in 1999) became when he pledged allegiance to al Qaeda in 2004. Al Qaeda and al Qaeda in Iraq had a very uneasy relationship as al Qaeda “central” (Bin Laden and Zawahiri) opposed the brutal attacks on so many fellow Muslims that Zarqawi saw fit to kill for supporting the new Iraqi democracy or “the US occupation” or for being Shia rather than Sunni.

        In January 2006 Abu Musab al-Zarqawi’s Jama’at al-Tawhid wal-Jihad (“al Qaeda in Iraq”) joined with other Sunni militant groups to form the Mujahideen Shura Council (MSC). In June 2006 Zarqawi was killed by US bombs in a targeted assassination.

        In October 2006 the group declared themselves to be the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) and the leadership was taken up by an Islamic scholar with both a Masters and PhD in Islamic studies whose birth name was Ibrahim Awad Ibrahim al-Badri but who went by many aliases as a jihadist leader, most well known in the international press as Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

        in 2011 al-Nusra Front (the al Qaeda branch in Syria) was led by al-Baghdadi and he sought to merge it with his Islamic State in Iraq (ISI)/Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL/ISIS) group which al Qaeda opposed. This led to the split of the two groups and since that time al Nusra and ISIS have been not only at war with the Syrian government and anti-government Syrian rebels but with each other as well.

        Finally in 2014 ISIS/ISIL/EIIL declared themselves to not only be advocates for a new global Caliphate but to be that Caliphate and declared Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi to be the Caliph. This means they see themselves as the ONLY legitimate rulers of the entirety of the Islamic world.

          Zarqawi wasn’t nothing till Bush invaded and tried to occupy Iraq on a bunch of lies.

          • TaiFood

            @ohdisqusnsa666100:disqus You are blinded by your bias. Surely you have heard of Al Queda?

            These events are not isolated, just historical progression of GOALS from Islamic extremists that are not PROACTIVELY suppressed by the some 1-2 billion Muslims. Isn’t that the root fear of the issue?

        • TaiFood

          @abelashes:disqus Sincerely, thank you for your concise refresher of the history of this caliphate.

          I find it informative especially after enduring Glenn Beck’s rants on this subject and the reason he was driven from his own show on the opposition news network of note and now the most watched 24/7 (cable) news network within the US.

          While I thought Mr. Beck was very educational, I bought into the, then, thought that he was losing it. In retrospect, I owe that man an apology. Your information aligns with the essential issues that Mr. Beck was proliferating to the ridicule from the main stream media.

      • Abel Ashes

        Islamic State is NOT state sponsored. I will keep saying it until people realize that it is true. Islamic State (“ISIS”) is an enemy of every single government that one or another conspiracy theorist, propagandist, paranoiac, or liar has accused of supporting “ISIS”.

        Islamic State has a military strategy and will not attack anyone until they are in a prepared and advantageous position to do so. Islamic State has conducted attacks against Saudi Arabia prior to the recent attacks on Shia mosques, having killed Saudi border guards in the past.

        Besides Iraq (the birthplace of “ISIS”), Syria (which has lost 50% of its territory to “ISIS”, and Saudi Arabia (which has been helping the US and Iraq to bomb “ISIS” targets in Iraq), “ISIS” is looking to attack Israel, Palestine, Jordan (another country that has been bombing “ISIS”, Lebanon (home country of “ISIS”‘s enemy Hezbollah), Turkey (which is finally beginning to take a more proactive course against “ISIS), Iran (which has troops in both Iraq and Syria helping to fight “ISIS”), Egypt (which is at war with “ISIS” cells in Sinai) Libya, Tunisia and Algeria (which are cooperating in efforts to combat “ISIS” cells in Libya) and all of the Gulf Arab countries which are allies of Saudi Arabia and seen by “ISIS” as “infidel occupiers” of portions of “the Caliphate”…..but that is just the beginning. “ISIS” sees all governments on Earth as “infidels” and only recognizes their “Caliphate” and the global Ummah they believe themselves to be the rightful rulers of according to their leaders’ extreme version of Islam.

            No, of course not. But they will, now that you asked….. that is how they operate. I don’t blame the Israeli’s for getting out of Israel in record numbers, since they know they will be killed by their own leaders to acheive their agenda of middle east domination by “GREATER ISRAEL” which is suppose to be comprised of Lebenon, Eygpt, Saudi Peninsula, Libya, Tunisia etc….. THEY DO THESE FALSE FLAGS THAT KILL THEIR OWN PEOPLE IN ORDER TO GAIN THEIR SUPPORT FOR WAR. Why did they build a nuke hardened bunker back in 2003, that Bush paid for with American tax money???? Also its now been proven beyond any doubt that Mossad did 9-11 and not one single traitor in our government will prosecute them. That is how far into our government these Israeli’s have infiltrated and thank goodness, more and more people are waking up to the truth. They are making way too many mistakes now……. and military that were booted out of our Pentagon are finally spilling the beans as well.

Israel, CIA, and MI6, created ISIS and ISIL and are using them to justify military and police state tactics and to blame for false flags these globalist khazars intend to do to the various european and American countries. I hate to tell you this Abel, but it won’t work anymore. We know too much now. If anything, you will become the targets if you continue on wth this depopulation agenda. RESISTANCE IS ALIVE AND WELL.

          You can say all that, but we still know that Turkey and Saudi Arabia are helping ISIS and that the USA has helped them help ISIS. It is really disgusting that you claim that Turkey is now finally taking a proactive course against ISIS. What the heck are you basing that on. The very fact that Turkey was so begrudging to let the USA use the Incirlik base against ISIS and demanded all kind of nonsense for permission! That should tell you something! Saudi Arabia, they’re bombing the Houthis – all out – how is that hurting Al Qaida in Yemen? Answer: it isn’t. Where to begin really, with your claim that Saudi Arabia is the enemy of ISIS, Al Qaida, or affiliated groups such as Nusra. Get out of here. Saudi Arabia is all about Sunnis killing non-Sunnis. Get out of here many times. What you are doing is really disgusting and in my opinion it represents true hostility to the USA because you are propagandizing for Americas enemies during wartime. 1 more thing: Saudi Arabia under the bus ASAP.
          Then, you say that “Libya” is what? Co-operating against ISIS? God!
          I would hope that you are not a US citizen, with such active propagandizing for the enemy during wartime. Of course, are you not merely repeating the excuses of Obama and the Democrats.

            @ohdisqusnsa666100:disqus This post surprised me so I’ll try to review your previous posts in light of some additional information but sincerely neither the state governments from whatever their sects derive motivation of either (are there more???) factions of Muslims (of which I admit have little in depth understanding) Shia nor the Sunni have good intentions let alone the survival of the United States.

            Somehow we need to become less ignorant that western civilization is under attack.

        • TaiFood

          @abelashes:disqus Please review your logic and the geographical facts that Islamic State is in fact a state and their state generates revenues.

          The fact that IS has no seat yet in the United Nations does not make me ignorant to the definition of being state sponsored.

        Here is the actual DIA paper in question that disinformation peddlers like Alex Jones, Nafeez Ahmed, and Chris Hedges have been lying about. It clearly states that the creation of a Salafist Islamic State is likely to occur because of Syrian and Iraqi jihadist groups that the US opposes and furthermore clearly states that such an Islamic State is not desirable to the US or for regional security and stability:

        DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE – CLASSIFICATION: SECRET.
        INFORMATION REPORT, NOT FINALLY EVALUATED INTELLIGENCE.
        COUNTRY: (U) IRAQ (IRQ). DOI: (U) 20120730. {12 August 2012}

        1. {REDACTED}

        2. {REDACTED}

        THE GENERAL SITUATION:

        A. INTERNALLY, EVENTS ARE TAKING A CLEAR SECTARIAN DIRECTION.

        B. THE SALAFIST,- THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD, AND AQI ARE THE MAJOR FORCES DRIVING THE INSURGENCY IN SYRIA.

        C. THE WEST, GULF COUNTRIES, AND TURKEY SUPPORT THE OPPOSITION; WHILE RUSSIA. CHINA, AND IRAN SUPPORT THE REGIME.

        D. {REDACTED}

        E. THE REGIME’S PRIORITY IS TO CONCENTRATE ITS PRESENCE IN AREAS ALONG THE COAST (TARTUS, AND LATAKJA); HOWEVER, IT HAS NOT ABANDONED HOMS BECAUSE IT CONTROLS THE MAJOR TRANSPORTATION ROUTES IN SYRIA. THE REGIME DECREASED ITS CONCENTRATION IN AREAS ADJACENT TO THE IRAQI BORDERS (AL HASAK.A AND DER ZOR).

        3. AL QAEDA – IRAQ (AQI):

        A. AQI IS FAMILIAR WITH SYRIA. AQI TRAINED IN SYRIA AND THEN INFILTRATED INTO IRAQ.

        B. AQI SUPPORTED THE SYRIAN OPPOSITION FROM THE BEGINNING, BOTH IDEOLOGICALLY AND THROUGH THE MEDIA. AQI DECLARED ITS OPPOSITION OF ASSAD’S GOVERNMENT BECAUSE IT CONSIDERED IT A SECTARIAN REGIME TARGETING SUNNIS.

        C. AQI CONDUCTED A NUMBER OF OPERATIONS IN SEVERAL SYRIAN CITIES UNDER THE NAME OF JAISH AL NUSRA (VICTORIOUS ARMY), ONE OF ITS AFFILIATES.

        D. AQI, THROUGH THE SPOKESMAN OF THE ISLAMIC STA TE OF IRAQ (ISi), ABU MUHAMMAD AL ADNANI, DECLARED THE SYRIAN REGIME AS THE SPEARHEAD OF WHAT HE IS NAMING JIBHA AL RUWAFDH (FOREFRONT OF THE SHIITES) BECAUSE OF ITS {THE SYRIAN REGIME) DECLARATION OF WAR ON THE SUNNIS.

        ADDITIONALLY. HE IS CALLING ON THE SUNNIS IN IRAQ, ESPECIALLY THE TRIBES IN THE BORDER REGIONS (BETWEEN IRAQ AND SYRIA), TO WAGE WAR AGAINST THE SYRIAN REGIME, REGARDING SYRIA AS AN INFIDEL REGIME FOR ITS SUPPORT TO THE INFIDEL PARTY HEZBOLLAH, AND OTHER REGIMES HE CONSIDERS DISSENTERS LIKE IRAN AND IRAQ.

        E. AQI CONSIDERS THE SUNNI ISSUE IN IRAQ TO BE FATEFULLY CONNECTED TO THE SUNNI ARABS AND MUSLIMS.

        4. THE BORDERS:

        A. THE BORDERS BETWEEN SYRIA AND IRAQ STRETCH APPROXIMATELY 600KM WITH COMPLEX TERRAIN CONSISTING OF A VAST DESERT, MOUNTAIN RANGES (SINJAR MOUNTAINS). JOINT RIVERS (FLOWING ON BOTH SIDES), AND AGRICULTURAL LANDS.

        B. IRAQ DIRECTLY NEIGHBORS THE SYRIAN PROVINCES OF HASAK.A AND DER ZOR, AS WELL AS (SYRIAN) CITIES ADJACENT TO THE IRAQI BORDER.

        C. THE LAND ON BOTH SIDES BETWEEN IRAQ AND SYRIA IS A VAST DESERT PUNCTUATED BY VALLEYS, AND IT LACKS TRANSPORTATION ROUTES, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE INTERNATIONAL HIGHWAY AND SOME MAJOR CITIES.

        5. THE POPULATION LIVING ON THE BORDER:

        A. THE POPULATION LIVING ON THE BORDER HAS A SOCIAL-TRIBAL STYLE, WHICH IS BOUND BY STRONG TRIBAL AND FAMILIAL MARITAL TIES.

        B. THEIR SECTARIAN AFFILIATION UNITES THE TWO SIDES WHEN EVENTS HAPPEN IN THE REGION.

        C. AQI HAD MAJOR POCKETS AND BASES ON BOTH SIDES OF THE BORDER TO FACILITATE THE FLOW OF MATERIAL AND RECRUITS.

        D. THERE WAS A REGRESSION OF AQI JN THE WESTERN PROVINCES OF IRAQ DURING TI-IE YEARS OF 2009 AND 2010; HOWEVER, AFTER THE RISE OF THE INSURGENCY IN SYRIA, THE RELIGIOUS AND TRIBAL POWERS IN THE REGIONS BEGAN TO SYMPATHIZE WITH THE SECTARIAN UPRISING. THIS (SYMPATHY) APPEARED IN FRIDAY PRAYER SERMONS, WHICH CALLED FOR VOLUNTEERS TO SUPPORT THE SUNNI’S IN SYRIA.

        6. THE SITUATION ON THE IRAQI AND SYRIAN BORDER:

        A. THREE BORDER BDES ARE SUFFICIENT TO CONTROL THE BORDERS DURING PEACE TIME FOR OBSERVATION DUTIES AND TO PREVENT SMUGGLING AND INFILTRATION.

        B. {REDACTED}

        C. IN PREVIOUS YEARS A MAJORITY OF AQI FIGHTERS ENTERED IRAQ PRIMARILY VIA THE SYRIAN BORDER.

        7. THE FUTURE ASSUMPTIONS OF THE CRISIS:

        A. THE REGIME WILL SURVIVE AND HA VE CONTROL OVER SYRIAN TERRITORY.

        B. DEVELOPMENT OF THE CURRENT EVENTS INTO PROXY WAR: WITH SUPPORT FROM RUSSIA, CHINA, AND IRAN, THE REGIME IS CONTROLLING THE AREAS OF INFLUENCE ALONG COASTAL TERRITORIES (TARTUS AND LATAKIA), AND IS FIERCELY DEFENDING HOMS, WHICH IS CONSIDERED THE PRIMARY TRANSPORTATION ROUTE IN SYRIA. ON THE OTHER HAND, OPPOSITION FORCES ARE TRYING TO CONTROL THE EASTERN AREAS (HASAKA AND DER ZOR), ADJACENT TO THE WESTERN IRAQI PROVINCES (MOSUL AND ANBAR), IN ADDITION TO NEIGHBORING TURKISH BORDERS. WESTERN COUNTRIES, THE GULF STATES AND TURKEY ARE SUPPORTING THESE EFFORTS. THIS HYPOTHESIS IS MOST LIKELY IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE DATA FROM RECENT EVENTS, WHICH WILL HELP PREPARE SAFE HAVENS UNDER INTERNATIONAL SHELTERING, SIMILAR TO WHAT TRANSPIRED IN LIBYA WHEN BENGHAZI WAS CHOSEN AS THE COMMAND CENTER OF THE TEMPORARY GOVERNMENT.

        8. THE EFFECTS ON IRAQ:

        A. {REDACTED} SYRIAN REGIME BORDER FORCES RETREATED FROM THE BORDER AND THE OPPOSITION FORCES (SYRIAN FREE ARMY) TOOK OVER THE POSTS AND RAISED THEIR FLAG. THE IRAQI BORDER GUARD FORCES ARE FACING A BORDER WITH SYRIA THAT IS NOT GUARDED BY OFFICIAL ELEMENTS WHICH PRESENTS A DANGEROUS AND SERIOUS THREAT.

        B. THE OPPOSITION FORCES WILL TRY TO USE THE IRAQI TERRITORY AS A SAFE HAVEN FOR ITS FORCES TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE SYMPATHY OF THE IRAQI BORDER POPULATION, MEANWHILE TRYING TO RECRUIT FIGHTERS AND TRAIN THEM ON THE IRAQI SIDE, IN ADDITION TO HARBORING REFUGEES (SYRIA).

        C. IF THE SITUATION UNRAVELS THERE IS THE POSSIBILITY OF ESTABLISHING A DECLARED OR UNDECLARED SALAFIST PRINCIPALITY IN EASTERN SYRIA (HASAKA AND DER ZOR), AND THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT THE SUPPORTING POWERS TO THE OPPOSITON WANT, IN ORDER TO ISOLATE THE SYRIAN REGIME, WHICH IS CONSIDERED THE STRATEGIC DEPTH OF THE SHJA EXPANSION (IRAQ AND IRAN).

        D. THE DETERIORATION OF THE SITUATION HAS DIRE CONSEQUENCES ON THE IRAQI SITUATION AND ARE AS FOLLOWS:

        1. THIS CREATES THE IDEAL ATMOSPHERE FOR AQI TO RETURN TO ITS OLD POCKETS IN MOSUL AND RAMADI, AND WILL PROVIDE A RENEWED MOMENTUM UNDER THE PRESUMPTION OF UNIFYING THE JIHAD AMONG SUNNI IRAQ AND SYRIA, AND THE REST OF THE SUNNIS IN THE ARAB WORLD AGAINST WHAT IT CONSIDERS ONE ENEMY, THE DISSENTERS. ISI COULD ALSO DECLARE AN ISLAMIC STATE THROUGH ITS UNION WITH OTHER TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS IN IRAQ AND SYRIA, WHICH WILL CREATE GRAVE DANGER IN REGARDS TO UNIFYING IRAQ AND THE PROTECTION OF ITS TERRITORY.

        2. {REDACTED}

        3. THE RENEWING FACILITATION OF TERRORIST ELEMENTS FROM ALL OVER THE ARAB WORLD ENTERING INTO THE IRAQ AREA

          It clearly says “C. THE WEST, GULF COUNTRIES, AND TURKEY SUPPORT THE OPPOSITION; WHILE RUSSIA. CHINA, AND IRAN SUPPORT THE REGIME.” Russia, China, Iran clearly support Assad – so it’s clear that “The West, Gulf Countries and Turkey… Support the OPPOSITION”.

          Thanks for clearly catapulting the official US Government propaganda that this article clearly disproves!

          You have said that this document is proof that the USA sees the Islamic so-called State as non-desirable.
          So, what, I suppose the Syrian Baathist regime is also non-desirable.
          So what do you got? Non-desirable vs. non-desirable. What a differentiation. What clarity of policy.
          You don’t even notice that you are betraying the USA.
          In other words, the USA is still willing to choose the WORSE non-desirable. Because you have not said that ISIS is a nightmare, a threat, a curse, something which should be prioritized for elimination – or “much worse” than the Syrian Baathist relatively secular govt. How many times have we lied awake at night unable to sleep because of something which was non-desirable?

        As I said would happen: “ISIS” has once again attacked Israel and is threatening to attack Israel and Palestine, including Hamas as Hamas attacks “ISIS”

        This is another “I told you so” moment. By following “ISIS””s own propaganda and statements I already knew that some of the rockets fired from Gaza that led to the recent conflict between Hamas and Israel and caused many innocent people’s deaths, were fired by “ISIS” cells in Gaza rather than Hamas. I also knew that “ISIS” opposes both Israel and all of the Palestinian parties including Hamas. “ISIS” does not recognize the “right to exist” of either Israel or Palestine as nations. The only “nation” whose “right to exist” “ISIS” recognizes is the “Caliphate” they have declared themselves to be and the global Ummah they believe themselves to be the rightful rulers of. “ISIS” considers Israel, Fatah, and Hamas to all be illegitimate “infidel” rulers and has declared their desire to fight them all.

        Hamas has been targeting the ISIS cells in Gaza. “ISIS” has been threatening Hamas and Israel recently, vowing to use their underground cells in Gaza and Sinai to attack both. “ISIS” has claimed responsibility for a recent rocket attack from Gaza into Israel.

          where has ISIS attacked israel? theybatyack GAZA yes but sdo does israel

            They haven’t and everyone knows it…… IT A DESPERATE ATTEMPT TO FINALIZE THEIR AGENDA OF GLOBAL DOMINATION BY PITTING US ALL AGAINST EACH OTHER AND THEN MUSLIMS AND CHRISTIANS KILL EACH OTHER OFF AND LEAVE THE ZIONISTS STANDING TO RULE THE WORLD. That has always been their plan. In 1871 Albert Pike, declared the need for 3 world wars and the objectives to be met in each one. And this agenda I just mentioned above is the one that will ensure khazars domination over all nations, including Jews, whom they hate worse than Muslims but not as much as they hate Christians. DId you know that Iran has not invaded or attacked another country in 360 years? Don’t you think that is interesting that the “KHAZAR OWNED PRESS” has never mentioned that fact nor mentioned HOW MANY COUNTRIES ISRAEL HAS ATTACKED IN THE PAST 20 YEARS? Check it out for yourself.

            There is no comparison. The khazars are far more dangerous to this country and Europe than we are to anyone else on the planet….. IF WE PURGE ALL DUAL ISRAELI CITIZENS OUT OF OUR GOVERNMENT, THEN ALL OF THIS WILL STOP.

            • Kevin Schmidt

              Yes, a few Zionist Jews half way across the world in Israel, who get their financing from the US Government, are in complete control of the US Government. Gee, why doesn’t that make any sense at all?

      • Melo D

        Well, that kind of blows up all the GOP’s plans to deal with ISIS. Almost every GOP presidential candidate says we need to arm more people in the region to defeat ISIS. However, it looks like all that accomplishes is to give more guns to a region where they all hate us.

        • Pegasus0

          Yes, and if we quit bombing and helping Israel EMPIRE BUILD, then we would not be so hated. We, the people are partially to blame for not stopping our governments aggression at the behest of Israel. WE are beginning to act and look a LOT more like Israel and then we are lookin as we used to be…. Americans, minding our own buisiness, and conducting trade and commerce and tourism with other countries. PURGE ALL DUAL CITIZENS OUT OF OUR INTEL SERVICES, OUT OF HOMELAND SECURITY, OUT OF THE PENTAGON, OUT OF EVERY BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT AND SEND THEM ALL PACKING BACK TO “KHAZAR CONTROLLED” ISRAEL WHERE THEIR LOYALTIES LIE.

          And finally, OBAMA IS NOT GOP. HE IS A DEM, SO GET THAT STRAIGHT AS WELL, BOTH PARTIES ARE GONE AND WE NEED TO PURGE THEM AS WELL. IF WE WANT THIS ALL TO STOP IT HAS TO BEGIN WITH THE POLITICAL PARTIES AND THE PEOPLE NEED TO LET THE LEADERS KNOW THAT THIS IS TO END AND DO SO NOW.

        Not surprising at all.
