More US Special Forces Heading to Support ISIS in Iraq and Syria
by Stephen Lendman
Washington’s war on terror is a complete fabrication – throughout the Middle East and elsewhere, supporting ISIS and other terrorist groups, not combating them as falsely claimed.
On Tuesday, Defense Secretary Ashton Carter announced more US special forces heading for Iraq on top of thousands already there, as well as increased numbers for Syria – part of Washington’s regional aggression, advancing its imperium at the expense of world peace and stability.
Carter claiming US combat troops will aid Iraqi and Kurdish peshmerga forces against ISIS is a Big Lie. Direct US military involvement in Iraq and Syria escalates ongoing conflicts, instigated by Washington in the first place, intending to make matters worse.
Neocons in Washington want much greater numbers of US troops sent to both countries – to support ISIS on the pretext of combating it, oust Assad and confront Russia’s real war on terrorism. US efforts are entirely phony, menacing peace and freedom wherever its elements show up.
“We’re prepared to do more,” Carter ranted, lying about Washington’s real intentions, an imperial agenda threatening world peace and stability, risking direct confrontation with Russia, possible nuclear war if rogue elements aren’t stopped.
His claim about unilaterally “conduct(ing) raids, free(ing) hostages, gather(ing) intelligence, and captur(ing) ISIL leaders” is fraudulent cover for Washington’s real objectives – eliminating Assad and other independent regional leaders, replacing them with US-controlled puppets, stealing area resources, exploiting its people, destroying their fundamental rights, along with balkanizing Syria and other Middle East states for easier control.
No nation threatens humanity’s survival more than America. Devastating WW III may be just a matter of time, a war to end all wars if nuclear weapons are used.
A Final Comment
Whenever an alleged terrorist attack happens anywhere, think false flag, the most likely explanation, these incidents strategically timed and planned for a reason – to stoke fear and enlist support for policies harming public safety and welfare while claiming otherwise.
Erdogan shot himself in the foot by downing Russia’s aircraft, a stupid move, compounded by lying about what happened, along with arresting former officials and independent journalists for exposing regime wrongdoing – refining and selling oil for ISIS, as well as smuggling weapons cross-border to their fighters.
On Tuesday, a suspicious explosion rocked Istanbul’s Bayrampasa district, killing at least one, injuring half a dozen others – authorities citing a bomb detonation, other reports saying a power transformer blew up.
Investigating the incident continues. It likely accomplished its objective – diverting attention from unpopular arrests of former government officials and journalists for exposing state crimes, waging war on Kurds, recklessly confronting Russia, and perhaps making it easier for Erdogan to continue his lawless agenda.
Expect more of these suspicious incidents in Turkey, Europe and America – always with a rogue agenda in mind.
