US Deploys ISIS to Central Asia
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org (Home – Stephen Lendman).
America created and supports ISIS, al-Qaeda and other well-known terrorist groups – using their fighters to advance its imperium.
In December 1991, the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) was formed, Russia its leading member, along with eight other nations and two associate ones – all former Soviet republics.
According to CIS Anti-Terrorist Center (ATC) head General Andrey Novikov, ISIS is shifting its main focus from Syria and Iraq to Central Asia, including Afghanistan, saying:
The terrorist group “exports a new model of extremist and terrorist activity from (Syria and Iraq) battle zones to the Central Asian states.”
Earlier ISIS announced the creation of a new “province” centered in Afghanistan, including territories of other Central Asian states.
According to Novikov, “(a)nalysis of military clashes (in Afghanistan shows local) militants adopting not only the strategy, but also tactical military concepts” used by ISIS.
Its fighters are trying to seize areas, intending expansion to surrounding territories. They “set a goal of expanding (their) influence in the northern regions of Afghanistan and gaining access to the border regions of the Central Asian states as well as to the Chinese Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region,” Novikov explained.
They’re battling Taliban fighters in some areas for control, an apparent diabolical US plot to create greater conflict and turmoil in Central Asia than already, ISIS terrorists used as imperial foot soldiers.
According to Novikov, over 7,000 CIS citizens are wanted for terrorist-related activities, more than 2,000 now fighting as mercenaries.
Afghanistan is America’s longest war in modern times, a forever war supported by neocons infesting Washington.
It’s unrelated to 9/11, a phony pretext used to wage endless wars of aggression against multiple countries.
Trump escalated what his predecessors began, his pledged noninterventionism while campaigning renounced.
ISIS and other terrorist groups are instruments used by Washington to advance its imperium, raping and destroying one nation after another – all sovereign independent countries targeted for regime change, notably Russia and China.
Moscow is focused on preventing ISIS and other terrorist groups from invading its territory, a key reason why it intervened in Syria at Assad’s request – committed to defeating the scourge there rather than face it domestically.
Its growing Central Asian infestation puts its fighters dangerously close to its borders – a likely US plot to destabilize and create turmoil in Russia.
America’s rage for unchallenged global dominance risks unthinkable war between the world’s leading nuclear powers, threatening humanity’s survival.
Trump proved he’s as ruthless and reckless as his predecessors. His deep swamp infested with neocons, generals, and monied interests threatens life on planet earth.
