The U.S. Is Supporting the Most Violent Muslim Terrorists In Order to Wage War for Oil

George Washington's picture

Sunni Muslims commit more terrorist acts worldwide than any other group.  For example, the National Counterterrorism Center’s 2011 Report on Terrorism found that:

Sunni extremists accounted for the greatest number of terrorist attacks and fatalities for the third consecutive year.   More than 5,700 incidents were attributed to Sunni extremists, accounting for nearly 56 percent of all attacks and about 70 percent of all fatalities. Among this perpetrator group, al-Qa‘ida (AQ) and its affiliates were responsible for at least 688 attacks that resulted in almost 2,000 deaths, while the Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan conducted over 800 attacks that resulted in nearly 1,900 deaths.  Secular, political, and anarchist groups were the next largest category of perpetrators, conducting 2,283 attacks with 1,926 fatalities, a drop of 5 percent and 9 percent, respectively, from 2010.

(Thankfully, the percentage of Muslim terror attacks in the U.S. is relatively small).

Saudi Arabia is the center of the Sunni branch of Islam.  It is also the center of the most violent and radical sect of Islam … the “Wahhabis” (also called “Salafis”).   But the U.S. has long supported the Madrassa schools within Saudi Arabia which teach radical Wahabi beliefs.

Indeed, the U.S. has directly inserted itself into a sectarian war between the two main Islamic sects, backing the “Sunnis” and attacking the “Shiites” (also called “Shia”). See this, this and this.

For example, American political leaders have been very close to Saudi (i.e. Sunni) leaders for decades:

Obama is no different:


Why?  Because of Saudi oil. (Virtually all geopolitics are based on oil and other hydrocarbons.)

Indeed, (1) the Co-Chair of the Congressional Inquiry into 9/11 and former Head of the Senate Intelligence Committee, and (2) a former 6-year congressman and MSNBC talk show host have both said that – even if the Saudi government was behind 9/11 – we need Saudi oil too much to do anything about it.

Our backing of the most violent branch of Sunni Muslims has had real consequences:

  • Our backing of Sunnis in Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia led to 9/11*
  • Our backing of Sunni extremists in Libya led to attacks on our embassies in Libya and Tunisia

And McClatchy interviewed an Al Qaeda terrorist fighting against the Syrian government – with U.S. backing – as saying:

When we finish with Assad, we will fight the U.S.!

Do you still doubt that the U.S. is supporting Sunni terrorists?

The U.S. National Security Adviser admitted that the U.S. created, organized and armed the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan – including Bin Laden and his lieutenants – to fight the Soviets.  The Mujahadeen are predominately Sunni.    The Mujahadeen eventually morphed into Al Qaeda, which is a Sunni organization.

During various times and places, the U.S. has also backed the Muslim Brotherhood … another Sunni group.

In addition, the American government has supported:

  • Sunni MEK terrorists in Iran
  • The brutal Sunni government in Bahrain as it crushes its majority Shia population whenever it pushes for democratic reform

And the “rebels” in Syria who we’ve been supporting are Al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood.

The New York Times reports this week:

In Syria’s largest city, Aleppo, rebels aligned with Al Qaeda control the power plant, run the bakeries and head a court that applies Islamic law. Elsewhere, they have seized government oil fields, put employees back to work and now profit from the crude they produce.


Across Syria, rebel-held areas are dotted with Islamic courts staffed by lawyers and clerics, and by fighting brigades led by extremists. Even the Supreme Military Council, the umbrella rebel organization whose formation the West had hoped would sideline radical groups, is stocked with commanders who want to infuse Islamic law into a future Syrian government.


Nowhere in rebel-controlled Syria is there a secular fighting force to speak of.

Do you get it?

The government has taken away our liberties and destroyed our prosperity in order to fight an endless war on terror.  Americans have become the most spied upon people in history. Never-ending war has destroyed our economy.

And yet the government has been arming, funding and otherwise backing the very terrorists who are carrying out the biggest percentage of terror attacks.

As we noted last year:

In the name of “fighting Al Qaeda or associated forces” or those who “support” those bad guys, the U.S. government has authorized:

In other words, the government has shredded our constitution and destroyed our freedom and liberties in order to fight Al Qaeda and associated forces.


And yet the government is itself supporting – with money, arms, and logistical support – Al Qaeda and associated forces in a number of nations.

People who believe that we’re in a “new post-9/11 reality” should remember that everything happening now started before 9/11, and that current U.S. policy towards the Middle East and North Africa was determined many decades ago.   It’s not just the Neocons who planned this strategy. Jimmy Carter’s National Security Adviser helped to map out the battle plan for Eurasian petroleum resources over a decade ago, and Obama is clearly continuing the same agenda.

Sadly – by any measure – the U.S. … all to justify our geopolitical goals.

Egypt and Syria have very little oil, and china is buying up all the drilling rights in Africa. Obama hates fossil fuels and is only interested in setting up a caliphate yet this guy thinks we are shouldering all this grief for oil?

The Joker's picture

Not just oil, but oil is a huge part of it.  Hegemony, control of all the resources.

Lybia has the major oil port in the mediterranian.  Sudan has a ton of oil and we are indirectly battling China for control of the oil there.  Not sure about Somalia.  Syria has oil:  . Don't forget about the pipelines and routes.  Our four bases in Afghanistan are near the pipeline there.  Iran has oil, Iraq oil.  Oil, water, mineral, control, power.

Technically, I thought Al Qaeda was initially, if not currently, inspired and formed to fight Osama Bin Laden’s father and other family members in Saudi Arabia precisely because they had partnered with people from the US.  Doesn’t that make the causes a little different?

I know the madrassas  probably don’t help any, if not much worse, but doesn’t that still mean that the Saudi royals were opposed by the OBL’s of the world because of their relationship with us, in the US, and not because we gave money directly to the terrorists who are fighting us and the Saudi royals -- even though the Saudi royals may be supporting indirectly, if not directly, the very people attacking them and us?

Or, maybe, it’s all just a mirage within a delusion obscured by camouflage.

Men in the middle east often seem to double kiss with those they respect, big deal.  (Unless it's because we shouldn't respect the Saudi royals.)

Many Saudis in the ruling class went to school in the states and have known many of our people in the oil business for many years. Some wear Levis and western 10 gallon hats when they are in Texas. Politicians come and go but these personal relationships last.

Following the Soviet Union's withdrawal from Afghanistan in February 1989, Osama bin Laden returned to Saudi Arabia in 1990 as a hero of jihad. Along with his Arab legion, he was thought to have "brought down the mighty superpower" of the Soviet Union.[78] He was angered by the internecine tribal fighting among the Afghans.[79]

The Iraqi invasion of Kuwait under Saddam Hussein on August 2, 1990, put the Saudi kingdom and the House of Saud at risk. With Iraqi forces on the Saudi border, Saddam's appeal to pan-Arabism was potentially inciting internal dissent. Bin Laden met with King Fahd, and Saudi Defense Minister Sultan, telling them not to depend on non-Muslim assistance from the United States and others, and offering to help defend Saudi Arabia with his Arab legion. Bin Laden's offer was rebuffed, and the Saudi monarchy invited the deployment of U.S. forces in Saudi territory.[80] Bin Laden publicly denounced Saudi dependence on the U.S. military, arguing the two holiest shrines of Islam, Mecca and Medina, the cities in which the Prophet Mohamed received and recited Allah's message, should only be defended by Muslims. Bin Laden's criticism of the Saudi monarchy led them to try to silence him. The U.S. 82nd Airborne Division landed in north-eastern Saudi city of Dhahran and was deployed in the desert barely 400 miles from Medina.[79]

Meanwhile, on November 8, 1990, the FBI raided the New Jersey home of El Sayyid Nosair, an associate of al-Qaeda operative Ali Mohamed. They discovered copious evidence of terrorist plots, including plans to blow up New York City skyscrapers. This marked the earliest discovery of al-Qaeda terrorist plans outside of Muslim countries.[81] Nosair was eventually convicted in connection to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, and later admitted guilt for the murder of Rabbi Meir Kahane in New York City on November 5, 1990.

Bin Laden continued to speak publicly against the Saudi government, for which the Saudis banished him. In 1992 he went to live in exile in Sudan, in a deal brokered by Ali Mohamed.[82]

George Washington's picture

Robin Cook, British Foreign Secretary from 1997 to 2003 said:

Bin Laden was, though, a product of a monumental miscalculation by
western security agencies. Throughout the 80s he was armed by the CIA
and funded by the Saudis to wage jihad against the Russian occupation of
Afghanistan. Al-Qaida, literally "the database", was originally the
computer file of the thousands of mujahideen who were recruited and
trained with help from the CIA to defeat the Russians. Inexplicably, and
with disastrous consequences, it never appears to have occurred to
Washington that once Russia was out of the way, Bin Laden's organisation
would turn its attention to the west.

Philosophy: Absolute power. 

Assumption: You cannot have absolute power in a democracy because you need the people to approve your foreign policy. 

Solution:  Destroy democracy.

Planners: Brzezinski (Ziggy, as I like to call him), Wolfowitz, CFR

Implementors:  Cheney, CIA, among many others (I think Obama is an enabler at this point)

Financiers:  Rothschild, Soros, Rockefeller, World Bank


Absolute Power is the goal.

This writer consistantly has the dumbest articles.

The war isn't being fought for oil. American oil companies weren't allowed to bid on contracts in Iraq. Did you notice the word, BID

No, the war is being fought for the Muslim Brotherhood's control of the Middle East. That's why in Egypt Mubarek had to go. That's why in Syria Assad has to go and why King Abdullah II will have to leave Jordan. And of course, Lebanon is already an Iranian puppet state. The last straw will be Saudi Arabia.

The final goal is the destruction of Israel.

That said if the new pope comes out and says Obama is a murderer like his predecessors before him i will go to church every week.

Catholics aren't Christians. The pope leads the largest cult in the world. 

I'm a born again Christian. I realized I was a sinner. I accepted what Jesus did on the cross as payment for those sins. I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I do the best I can to live a good life in service to Jesus Christ. 

In time we'll have an economic collapse that will lead to the one-world government described in the Bible's book of Revelation. The anti-christ will rule the world for 7 years then Jesus will return and set up His kingdom.

Really? Why, that could have been as long ago as our Ambassador and duty-compelled individuals being aced in Benghazi.  Or as near to today as, well, today.

Let us posit that "various" "times" are now, now, now and support is flowing in to Syria (I posit from both sides, but maybe "both" is too limiting?)

Origins of Islam:

Flavius Constantinus Heraclius, in order to shore up support on the Eastern Front, dusts off an old trick started by Vespasian, Titus and Domitian, dba "the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit".

The religion outlasts the empire.  It gets changed in the 2nd and 3rd generations (as Leninism did with Stalin) to a virulent form of despotry.

Look up the supposed letter between "Heraclius" and "Muhammed" that is often used as a prop.

It comes as no surprise that the US would fund the most violent members of this Clique for oil.  It is a trick that goes back 1500 years and more.

History doesn't repeat but it often rhymes.


Caesar Worship.

Blue Dog's picture

Totally untrue. I have no idea what planet you got that crap from. 

Islam teaches a different god, Allah. It teaches a violent religion that must be spread by the sword. The whole world must bow the knee to Allah and accept Sharia law. All those who resist must die. The lives, property, and women of the infidels are fair game to Muslims. That's one reason why Muslims commit the most rapes in Europe. And it's no accident that there are more Muslim women in domestic abuse shelters than any other kind.

The Father, Son, and Holy Spirt are the trinity as described throughout the Bible. Like here:

(Mat 28:18-20 NIV)  Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. {19} Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, {20} and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."




Charles Wilson's picture

'tis a pity that you don't get it.

The Flavians - Vespasian, Titus and Domitian - took over from the Julio-Claudians.  Vespasian is ordered to subdue Judaea by Nero.

Nero dies and then follows Galba, Otho and Vitellius.

"Golgotha" <=> "Gabbatha" <=> "Galba-Otho" for your first clue.

Vespasian marches on Rome, preparing to starve them out if need be.  Titus takes over the siege of Jerusalem.

His first "miracle" - his "onset" -  is slaughtering a village and all its inhabitants as they take to their boats.  He literally turns the water blood red with the deaths.

This is the "Fishers of Men" passage for your second clue.

Death and destruction follow and the question becomes, "How do we get the Jews to worship Caesar without their even knowing it?"

Thus, Christianity.  I really want to tie this in with the topic of the G Washington post, that we are supporting the most bloodthirsty sections of Islam.

Am I supposed to be surprised by this?  This has been the Method for 2000 years!  There is NOTHING NEW HERE!  The Romans stole Jewish History and rewrote it to a Roman end.  You can find evidence IN THE BIBLE linking to Titus and his bloody Reign in the area, the Temple Slaughter of 4 BCE and the wholesale rewriting of the Heroic Stories of Alexander Jannaeus.

Jannaeus is a King from the Hasmoaeans, of Jehoiarib.  You can find out the origins of this in 1 Chronicles 24.  The last group of Eleazar in Chronicles is "Immer".  Close to the word "Immer" is "Immar", meaning "Lamb", as in "Lamb of God".  These groups serve in the Temple in a rotation known as "Mishmarot".  See Revelation 5+ for your third clue.  These stories are about the primacy of Eleazar and the Promise of the return of the Hasmonaeans to the Rulership and High Priesthood and the expulsion of the Herodians and the Romans.

All murdered.  And the bloody reigns of the Caesars get rewritten into the Peaceful Man from Galilee.  Never mind all of those dead Jews and Galileans, they don't count.  Just make sure you have your ham and cheese dinner on Easter.

Another Flavian, Constantinus Heraclius, attempts to do the same thing.  AND YOU DON'T GET IT.  Why should we be shocked that our government should fund Murder on such a scale by backing these people?  It's how Policy has been conducted for thousands of years.  Why?  Because, "My Caesar is better than your Caesar."  Two Supersecessionist religions from the same area in 600 years?

Wake up and smell the Reefer.
