"There's No Such Thing As ISIS": Journalist Destroys West's Terror Narrative, Warns Of Crackdown On "Dissidents"

Tyler Durden's picture

On Saturday, the day after the massacre in France which turned the streets of Paris into a warzone and left some 130 civilians dead, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had a message for the West. 

While condemning the attacks and branding the perpetrators “savages”, he was also quick to note that Syria has been dealing with this brand of terrorism for nearly five years straight. In what amounted to an “I told you so” moment, Assad also said the following: “We said, don't take what is happening in Syria lightly. Unfortunately, European officials did not listen.” 

Assad also took the opportunity to once again suggest that the West’s sponsorship of the regional powers who support (both explicitly and implicitly) Sunni extremism in Syria is the root cause of the problem although the language he used was a bit less harsh than that which he employed in September (presumably because he was trying not to inflame tensions less than 24 hours after the Paris massacre). Here’s what he said: "The question that is being asked throughout France today is, was France's policy over the past five years the right one? The answer is no."

Presumably, Assad was referencing the West’s support for the various militant groups seeking to oust his government. Those groups, including ISIS, have received money, guns, and training at various times from the CIA, from Turkey, from Saudi Arabia, and from Qatar. The situation on the ground is of course so fluid that it’s nearly impossible to keep track of where the guns, money, and fighters end up, meaning that even those observers who shun conspiracy theories would be hard pressed to contend that the US has not at least indirectly armed and trained ISIS. 

Perhaps the most overlooked passage in all of the leaked documents that have surfaced thus far is the following from a declassified Pentagon report dated August 2012 and obtained by Judicial Watch: 

...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 opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime, which is considered the strategic depth of the Shia expansion (Iraq and Iran).”

That’s it.

That’s the smoking gun and nobody seems to care.

The passage above clearly states that the US knew this was coming and viewed it as “exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want” on the way to not only “isolating” Assad, but also to breaking Tehran’s Shiite crescent. 

Although that’s such a critical excerpt, it has been habitually overlooked, and ironically, tragedies like that which occurred in Paris only serve to galvanize public opinion around an ideal rather than around the search for answers and that, is a dangerous, dangerous thing. 

In that context and (importantly) in the context of French President Francois Hollande’s push to alter the French Constitution, we bring you the following interview with journalist Gearoid O’Colmain who pretty much blows apart the entire charade in the space of ten minutes. 

"There is no such thing as ISIS. ISIS is a creation of the US, we know that from official sources of the US military themselves and declassified documents"...

I wouldn't agree that "there is no such thing as ISIS."  There is such a thing, and the US and its allies helped create it.

Insane troll logic.   ISIS simultaneaously 1.) Was created by the US 2.) Does not exist.

How could both of those statements possibly be true?

2:50 - There is no such thing as ISIS.

3:30 - There are no moderate rebels, there is only Al Qaida and ISIS militants.

All this for a little country the size of New Jersey. Hezbolla, Shiites, and most of the Arab world call bullshit on Zionism and their slow destruction of Palestine. The US takes sides with the Devil.

There has been a >100K person protest against this collectivist globalist climate scam power grab in the works for months now.

With the Paris massacre, the PTB have all the excuses in the world to thwart the massive protest effort.

How F’n convenient.

It's not for a little country. It is for the gas companies operating in Qatar to get a pipeline to the Mediterranean to sell gas to Europe. So the route through Iraq and Syria needed to be cleared, 'cleared' if they did not obey. In practice the costs are probably higher than the gas profits warrant but they weren't to know that when they started it. It is always, and everywhere, about money and profits.

"...Whatever dude. This guy doesn't know any more than an American propagandist talking head bullshitter..."

Understanding his arguments requires 1) an I.Q. above 40 and 2) the ability to understand the concept of engineered, coercive actions. He specifically used the term when describing the 'engineered, coercive migrations' as a tool of social unrest and instability. The same concept applies to engineered, coercive religious extremism, i.e., Wahabbism. Asylum-seeking or economic refugee migrations and religious extremism both existed well before this and were well off most people's radars. O'Colmain is emphasizing both the engineered and coercive aspects that turned both of these into tools of Western hegemony and serious social problems. The term is from Kelly Greenhill's work Weapons of Mass Migration - Forced Displacement, Coercion, and Foreign Policy. Weaponized migration. I don't recall any of my American propagandist talking-head bullshitters touching on that subject. In fact, O'Colmain specifically warns against an emerging intellectual terrorism directed at alternative news sites that suggest such a thing even exists.

ISIS is a result of Western coerced, engineered migration. Calling all headchoppers: report to Syria. ISIS wouldn't have evolved or existed by itself, period. The sudden mass migration of Syrian refugees was engineered and coerced - they've been in refugee camps for years and the E.U. asylum and immigration policies haven't changed much in years. Why would millions suddenly decide to migrate in the last few months? In both cases, the powers that be exploited an existing social problem, engineered a crisis using it and then coerced participants to engage in that crisis-producing situation.

He specifically warns that this is a permanent socially destabilizing tool - he repeatedly refers to the Wahabbisasion of the French working class. Divide and conquer. 

Did Western powers put their soldiers in Paris to carry out the massacre? Of course not - they didn't have to. They engineered the capability for extremists to access the country (weaponized immigration), obtain the arms and explosives, and coerced (through ideological leaders, handlers or planted 'masterminds') the followers to carry out the plot. The Western powers didn't need to create this specific plot for Paris (or Boston or even 9/11). They coercively engineered the spontaneous creation of many such plots by radicalized individuals, and simply let this specific one play out in a very controlled fashion. They'll bust other plots, but let enough slip by to create the state of low-level civil war. 

Investigations will go overboard to show it was a spontaneous plot from within ISIS. Like all the other terrorist acts, they will never reveal how they enabled, coerced, engineered, or passively allowed this to happen with full knowledge of the potential harm. The only thing the powers will admit to is that they were tracking some of these guys (but didn't have the manpower or intrusive spying capability or backdoor encryption keys) to prevent it. Guess what 'solutions' they'll propose to prevent the next act of terrorism? What tools will they need for their war on a Wahabbized French working class youth? Why, the French Patriot Act. If you can't gin up a good enough reason to punish and control the current French working class, then import a few tens-of-thousands of reasons.

O'Colmain describes the broader scope of weaponized migration as an effort to keep Europe divided - kept in a state of eternal geopolitical destabilization. The two most important 'powers' that must be kept in a state of constant conflict (destabilizing all of Europe as well): Russia and Germany.

France has been ready to blow for a while now. These acts of terror in France will repeat periodically JUST LIKE the mass shootings in the U.S. - they will never stop, no matter how oppressive the government becomes. They are allowed to occur because they serve a purpose. You can understand at least that much, right bob_stl?

France was easy, but it's only a prelude for the main target: Germany. It will take a year or two for the immigrant slums to develop and for enough disenfranchised Muslim youth to turn to radicalization, but it will happen. Weaponized migration works best when you scale it up and forcibly introduce it to a completely different culture.

I can only offer Germans (and Russians) my apologies for the actions of my psychopathic government. Putin knows what's happening. I'm surprised that Germans don't wake the fuck up an realize the U.S. and Israel are waging a proxy war on you to destabilize your country and region. Did you see how dozens of U.S. states are refusing Syrian refugees? Even the lesser psychopaths here in the states realize what the fuck is going on. Too late for France - the U.S.-backed geopolitical destabilization scheme has metastasized. You will be reminded of the scary terrorist threat every 8 - 10 months like clockwork while your rights are slowly stripped away.

Germany: You seem oblivious to the fact that the U.S. is at war with you - a proxy war through weaponized migration. Wake the fuck up. It might not be too late for you. For Christ's sake, stop being America's little bitch already - we are your worst enemy.

To supplement what Gearoid O'Colmain says on this topic, the following article by Thierry Messan is well worth the read from someone who has put his life on the line and paid the price for thinking independantly for an overall view of what is going on in Europe and, in particular, France. Even if you disagree with his ideas, you should read what he has to say. Here's the beginning blurb on the article:

The French Republic taken hostage
by Thierry Meyssan

The war which has now spread to Paris is incomprehensible for those French citizens who are ignorant of practically all the secret activities of their government in the Arab world, of its unnatural alliances with the Gulf dictators, and its active participation in international terrorism. These policies have never been discussed in Parliament, and the major media have rarely dared to take an interest in them.

Hows this, The myth that is ISIS was created by the US. The reality is a bunch of fuckers on the CIA payrol causing instability some under control some not.

F'ers on the Zino payroll causing instability and chaos. See Oded Yinnon.

"Insane troll logic. ISIS simultaneaously 1.) Was created by the US 2.) Does not exist."

What he means, of course, is that ISIL doesn't exist as it says it does, or as the West says it does.
It is not a real jihadist bunch. It's a made-up phenomenon.

And I add it's not even islam. The ISIL doctrine is what would come out of the brain of a simple-minded Hollywood scriptwriter who wouldn't have the foggiest idea about islamic doctrine, but would think "how can I make these dudes real scary?"

To begin with, in islam 101, there cannot be a self-proclaimed Caliphate. It simply cannot be.  I know that and I'm not even a muslim, so go figure...


AnonG-Man's picture

In essense ISIS did not pop up out the ground and ISIS does not grow on trees.  It is, of course, a Merc Army created, funded, and trained by numerous countries (especially within the NATO bloc):  U.S., Israel, Turkey, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, U.K., France, etc. (and some countries airports used illegally for gun running like Shannon in Ireland). Some having more of the lion share then others.  Their Merc Army is losing and thus will turn on their Masters as long as the faucet of cash and arms is not turned off.

All part of the plan.

Escrava Isaura's picture



It was a very good explanation. Colmain covered a lot.

My summarization would be the following:

Look at Isis as the coup d’état target at specific nations.

Followed by covert operations conducted by ‘power’ governments, corporations, or other organizations, designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations appear as if they are being carried by Isis.


That will lead to a civil war at these target nations.


Because the only tool left for power to fight the coming greatest depression is war.




EddieLomax's picture

Of course ISIS is Islam, they are the purest version of Islam out there, even more so then the Saudi's or Salafists.

The nut jobs streaming out there to join them know that, they are dying for Islam and give them some credit, they can read a book (most of them) and decide for themselves.

The real news though is that the attacks didn't come from Syria, so all this hysterical talk about ISIS and Syria is a smokescreen, it is far easier to drop a few bombs on Syrians then potentially lose votes by taking action at home.
