Al Qaeda Now Controls More Territory In The Arab World Than Ever Before

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Remember this?

This was the neo-conservatives' victory lap when they supposedly achieved one of their main stated goals: to discover and neutralize terrorist organizations, primarily al Qaeda.

Well, things have changed.

In what can be described a truly ironic event and a major failure for America's stated mission (because one can't help but wonder at all the support various Al Qaeda cells have received from the US and/or CIA) of eradicating the Al Qaeda scourge from the face of the earth, we learn today that al Qaeda appears to control more territory in the Arab world than it has done at any time in its history. According to a CNN report "from around Aleppo in western Syria to small areas of Falluja in central Iraq, al Qaeda now controls territory that stretches more than 400 miles across the heart of the Middle East, according to English and Arab language news accounts as well as accounts on jihadist websites."

The following recent map from Jane's shows just how extensive Al Qaeda's influence has grown in recent years.

And nowhere is the surge of Al Qaeda more visible than in recent events in Iraq. From CNN:

The focus of al Qaeda's leaders has always been regime change in the Arab world in order to install Taliban-style regimes. Al Qaeda's leader Ayman al-Zawahiri acknowledged as much in his 2001 autobiography, "Knights Under the Banner of the Prophet," when he explained that the most important strategic goal of al Qaeda was to seize control of a state, or part of a state, somewhere in the Muslim world, explaining that, "without achieving this goal our actions will mean nothing."

 

Now al-Zawahiri is closer to his goal than he has ever been. On Friday al-Qaeda's affiliate in Iraq seized control of parts of the city of Falluja and parts of the city of Ramadi, both of which are located in Iraq's restive Anbar Province.

 

Anbar is home to predominantly Sunni Muslims, who feel that that the Shiite-dominated Iraqi government of Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki treats the Sunnis as second-class citizens.

 

Sectarian tensions in Anbar recently burst into several all-out revolts against the government, and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), as the al-Qaeda affiliate there is known, quickly seized the opportunity to notch some battlefield victories.

 

Government forces increased their presence around Falluja in response and on Tuesday tribal leaders issued a statement urging people who had fled the city or stopped reporting to work to return.

America's escapade in Syria - where it was merely a puppet for Qatari nat gas oligarchs - has also backfired.

ISIS is also operating in Syria, where it has established a presence in many areas of the Aleppo and Idlib Governorates in the northwest. In August, ISIS launched a propaganda series on video highlighting their activities in Syria, which includes interviews with fighters; the "graduation" of a group of mujahedin "cubs" (aged about 7 to 10 years old) from training, and sermons at local mosques preaching al Qaeda's interpretation of Islam.

 

The al-Nusra front has claimed to control parts of at least a dozen Syrian towns. Those include sections of the ancient city of the Aleppo in the northwest, where fighters have been filmed running a community fair and preaching al Qaeda's values to crowds of children. The group has also released videos on jihadist websites claiming that it is providing services to the people of several towns in the governorate of Idlib, which borders the Aleppo Governorate to the west. Al Nusra claims that it is a quasi-government and service-provider in the towns of Binnish, Taum, and Saraqib.

 

Al-Nusra fighters allied to al Qaeda function like a government in areas they control in Syria. The group provides daily deliveries of bread, free running water and electricity, a health clinic, and a strict justice system based on Sharia law in the eastern Syrian city of Ash Shaddadi, where it also took control of the city's wheat silos and oil wells. In September a CNN reporting team concluded, "Al Qaeda has swept to power with the aim of imposing a strict Islamist ideology on Syrians across large swathes of Syria's rebel-held north."

 

In sum, al Qaeda affiliates now control much of northern and northwestern Syria as well as some parts of eastern Syria, as well as much of Anbar province, which is around a third of Iraqi territory.

It wouldn't be a US diplomatic debacle without at least one soundbite from John Kerry. So here it is:

Secretary of State John Kerry said on Sunday that the United States will "do everything that is possible to help" the Iraqi government control al Qaeda's expansion in Anbar, but stressed that no American troops would be sent back to the Middle Eastern nation . Last month, the United States quietly sent Hellfire missiles and surveillance drones to the Iraqi government to support their fight against increasing al Qaeda-related violence.

The question of how quickly the US "gift" was intercepted by Al Qaeda is rhetorical. The other rhetorical question is how long until the now much better armed (with US weapons) jihadists will turn those same weapons on the liberating Western powers. The US for now seems safe. Europe is a different matter.

For the United States the widening reach of al Qaeda in the Middle East doesn't necessarily translate into an immediate threat at home. So far only a handful of Americans have fought in the Syrian conflict alongside al Qaeda's affiliates there so concerns about some kind of "blowback" from the Syrian war in the U.S. are, at this point, unfounded.

 

European countries are rightly concerned, however. Many European countries have seen their citizens drawn to the Syrian war; more than a hundred from Britain and many dozens from countries like Norway, Denmark and the Netherlands, according to multiple European officials we have spoken to. These countries are concerned that the returning veterans of the Syrian conflict might launch terrorist attacks in Europe.

 

In October for instance, British authorities arrested militants who were allegedly planning a terrorist attack. Two British officials who work on counterterrorism issues told us that that the militants had recently traveled to Syria.

Finally, none of this should come as a surprise to anyone. Ron Paul, for one, has long predicted precisely this chain of events. In this context his latest commentary, posted here over the weekend, bears repeating.

Iraq: The ‘Liberation’ Neocons Would Rather Forget

Remember Fallujah? Shortly after the 2003 invasion of Iraq, the US military fired on unarmed protestors, killing as many as 20 and wounding dozens. In retaliation, local Iraqis attacked a convoy of US military contractors, killing four. The US then launched a full attack on Fallujah to regain control, which left perhaps 700 Iraqis dead and the city virtually destroyed.

According to press reports last weekend, Fallujah is now under the control of al-Qaeda affiliates. The Anbar province, where Fallujah is located, is under siege by al-Qaeda. During the 2007 “surge,” more than 1,000 US troops were killed “pacifying” the Anbar province.  Although al-Qaeda was not in Iraq before the US invasion, it is now conducting its own surge in Anbar.
 
For Iraq, the US “liberation” is proving far worse than the authoritarianism of Saddam Hussein, and it keeps getting worse. Last year was Iraq’s deadliest in five years. In 2013, fighting and bomb blasts claimed the lives of 7,818 civilians and 1,050 members of the security forces. In December alone nearly a thousand people were killed.
 
I remember sitting through many hearings in the House International Relations Committee praising the “surge,” which we were told secured a US victory in Iraq. They also praised the so-called “Awakening,” which was really an agreement by insurgents to stop fighting in exchange for US dollars. I always wondered what would happen when those dollars stopped coming.
 
Where are the surge and awakening cheerleaders now?
 
One of them, Richard Perle, was interviewed last year on NPR and asked whether the Iraq invasion that he pushed was worth it. He replied:

I've got to say I think that is not a reasonable question. What we did at the time was done in the belief that it was necessary to protect this nation. You can't a decade later go back and say, well, we shouldn't have done that.

Many of us were saying all along that we shouldn’t have done that – before we did it. Unfortunately the Bush Administration took the advice of the neocons pushing for war and promising it would be a “cakewalk.” We continue to see the results of that terrible mistake, and it is only getting worse.
 
Last month the US shipped nearly a hundred air-to-ground missiles to the Iraqi air force to help combat the surging al-Qaeda. Ironically, the same al-Qaeda groups the US is helping the Iraqis combat are benefiting from the US covert and overt war to overthrow Assad next door in Syria. Why can’t the US government learn from its mistakes?
 
The neocons may be on the run from their earlier positions on Iraq, but that does not mean they have given up. They were the ones pushing for an attack on Syria this summer. Thankfully they were not successful. They are now making every effort to derail President Obama’s efforts to negotiate with the Iranians. Just last week William Kristol urged Israel to attack Iran with the hope we would then get involved. Neoconservative Senators from both parties recently introduced the Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act of 2013, which would also bring us back on war-footing with Iran.
 
Next time the neocons tell us we must attack, just think “Iraq.”

Cold War. 1947 - 1991
War on Terror 2002 - ????

The last 11 years have seen massive growth in defense industry profits. In 2002, the combined profits of the five largest U.S.-based defense contractors were $2.4 billion (adjusted for inflation); by 2011, that figure had increased by a whopping 450 percent to $13.4 billion.

Attached is a chart of real per capita national defense spending since 1950.
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/ezra-klein/files/2012/08/soltas_mili...

Note that from 1989 through 2000 per capita spending for defense dropped 29%. After which spending increased almost 50% over the next ten years.

If the 'Mission' was to provide justificarion for the US to interject itself into ANYWHERE  in the Mideast, Africa or SE Asia, then we're looking at a resounding success.

If the 'Mission' was justification for neverending war throughout the Mideast, then we've succeeded.

If the Mission' was to provide an excuse for a much needed (as a distraction from the impending economic collapse - perhaps a path towards some form of economic 'recovery' - ain't gonna work THIS time though), then we've succeeded

If the 'Mission' was to provide some kind of superficial justification for wor;d-wide surveillance and hte shredding of American rights, we've succeeded. 

 

But if the 'Mission' was the neo-con wet dream of using the US military to insure American world political dominance, energy independence and economic dominance, well.......... Mission NOT accomplished.

It is well established that al Qaeda is a creation of the CIA.  The link below has comprehensive details.

One of the main objectives of war propaganda is to “fabricate an enemy”. The “outside enemy” personified by Osama bin Laden is “threatening America”.

Pre-emptive war directed against “Islamic terrorists” is required to defend the Homeland. Realities are turned upside down. America is under attack.

In the wake of 9/11, the creation of this “outside enemy” has served to obfuscate the real economic and strategic objectives behind the war in the Middle East and Central Asia. Waged on the grounds of self-defense, the pre-emptive war is upheld as a “just war” with a humanitarian mandate.

As anti-war sentiment grows and the political legitimacy the Bush Administration falters, doubts regarding the existence of this illusive “outside enemy” must be dispelled.

Counter-terrorism and war propaganda are intertwined. The propaganda apparatus feeds disinformation into the news chain. The terror warnings must appear to be “genuine”. The objective is to present the terror groups as “enemies of America.”

Ironically, Al Qaeda –the “outside enemy of America” as well as the alleged architect of the 9/11 attacks– is a creation of the CIA.

What is "Al Qaeda"?

It seems to be a label for sundry groups which likely have little or no actual contact or coordination between each other.

"Al Qaeda" is a magickal word. It gets people to stop thinking further, and to focus on some mythic coherent enemy. And any talk of the control or influence of the CIA, Mossad, and other intelligence services, thereby, is discounted, despite overwhelming evidence.

Control of MSM is the best way of charging sigils.  Pop culture really owes much to Bernays and to Alister Crowley, in my estimation. There are a couple good explanations on YT but most are junk/paranoia.   You have to know what to look for - you can't just be an Alex Jones or Michael Rivero finding conspiracies everywhere.  {{fake injuries at the Boston marathon??? - go fuck yourself, bitches.}}

Al Qaeda is great at blowing shit up.  Not so good at holding onto territory or administration or winning the hearts and minds of a populace. Al Qaeda is paid mercenaries sowing chaos for CIA and Mossad, and little more.  They are there to help the neocons {American Zionists, basically, and little else} with their longstanding plan, a plan that Netanyahu and Richard Perle and those sorts absolutely are really aiming for to remake the middle east

If you're a realist, inter alia, the zioconservative plan is not at all in the United States' best interest.  Iran and Russia are natural allies to the US.

Ah well, the fuckery will continue until they get their next war not in American national security interests. 

Maybe then the military and loyalist NSA/CIA guys will wake up. But - someone has to be the first guy over the hill, eh?

Aye, your spelling is correct. 

I suppose I mean Crowley and Bernays more as totems. Along with Crowley, I'd lump in Spare, and the fake-Celts *druid or wiccan*) and new age in general.   Esoteric, anti-trafitional bullshit for individuals. Bernays and Freud and Jung and focus group testing etc strip the same individual of his or her individuality to remake them programmable cattle.

 

Just an idea. I wouldn't really argue it though.  Our self-concept is more articial than ever, though, and while rejecting traditional religion is fine, its to me anyway, merely changing chains and Platonic caves.

"Al-Queda" means "The Base" in Persian, it was coined by Usama-Bin-Laden, when he was reporting directly to Ronald Raygun in the mid 1980's.

Then Bin-Laden ran the USD to the mujaheen(afghan resistance), on many occasion RAYGUN called 'Al-queda' the moral equivalent of our 'founding fathers'

After Russia collapsed The USA tried to get the stinger missiles back from Bin-LAden, but he decided to keep them, in the 1990's Bin-Laden got angry,

CIA had promised to remove USA MIL bases from Saudi, they failed that promise, and Bin-Laden, became a ROGUE CIA agent,

Bin-Laden was a USA trained engineer, and son of one of the richest familys in Saudi Arabia, most notably the Bin-laden family was put in power post WWII, by the BUSH family, ... to this day the two family bin-laden and bush are as thick as shit.

"Al Qaeda" is Arabic, not Farsi, and bin Laden didn't develop the term, which pre-existed his involvement by a few years. Despite obvious CIA involvment, it doesn't come from 'database' and it doesn't come from the slang for 'going to the toilet' either.  

Iran is no fan of Al Qaeda groups and indeed has offered in the past to help the U.S. in going after them.  The U.S. rejected these offers, for reasons which should be obvious.

Al-Queda was win-win for all.

Charle Wilson was Texas congressman who wanted to get stringers to AFGHAN, and he went through backdoors, but its all documented.

 

Ronald Raygun, Bush tribe, Bin-Laden history ( going back to WWII with bush ), CIA, Russia, Usama-Bin-Ladens USA education and training, its all here, no reason to bullshit, or quote COINTELPRO SITES on the web.

The entire story is in this book, written a long time ago, I think in the 1990's. But this book is 100% accurate and is used by the USA state departement to teach people the history of AL-QUEDA an how it was created by the CIA.

I wonder why everyone has forgotten how much hate FRANCE got for NOT wanting to contribute in the Irak war.

The whole dumbass "LIBERTY FRIES" , the “cheese-eating surrender MONKEYS”  things   all kind of silly jokes still continuing, even in ZH …. Five years of Anti-French slander and vilification was thus thrust by the White House, the administration, members of Congress, governors and by lackeys in the media (like Fox News or Murdoch Press).

Most amazing is that the totally ignorant US generation now see the French as cowards because of the avalanche of neo-cons propaganda and silly jokes after the firm and sensible refusal of the French to join America in Irak, in 2003.

May all Americans remember what they did, and how it speaks volumes about how are treated dissent, opinion and opposition.

The Bush regime lied and fabricated "evidence" that was used to deceive Congress, the American people, and the United Nations. The vice president of the United States and the national security adviser created public images of mushroom clouds going up over American cities unless Iraq was invaded and Saddam Hussein's terrible weapons of mass destruction were destroyed.

Also remember Dr. David Kelly (biological warfare expert and former UN weapons inspector in Iraq) and his ultimately suicide/murder !?!

What if Iraq were invaded, and Kelly replied, “I’ll probably be found dead in the woods...” ?
