The Insanity of American Foreign Policy: CIA-Backed Rebels Are Fighting Pentagon-Backed Rebels

George Washington's picture




 

CIA-backed Islamic rebels are fighting against Pentagon-backed Kurish rebels in Syria.

Buzzfeed notes:

Officials with Syrian rebel battalions that receive covert backing from one arm of the U.S. government told BuzzFeed News that they recently began fighting rival rebels supported by another arm of the U.S. government.

 

The infighting between American proxies is the latest setback for the Obama administration’s Syria policy and lays bare its contradictions as violence in the country gets worse.

 

The confusion is playing out on the battlefield — with the U.S. effectively engaged in a proxy war with itself.

 

***

 

Furqa al-Sultan Murad receives weapons from the U.S. and its allies as part of a covert program, overseen by the CIA, that aids rebel groups struggling to overthrow the government of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, according to rebel officials and analysts tracking the conflict.

 

The Kurdish militants, on the other hand, receive weapons and support from the Pentagon as part of U.S. efforts to fight ISIS. Known as the People’s Protection Units, or YPG, they are the centerpiece of the Obama administration’s strategy against the extremists in Syria and coordinate regularly with U.S. airstrikes.

(And see this story from the Telegraph.)

The Daily Beast also reports that U.S. allies are fighting CIA-backed rebels.

The U.S. is supporting the Kurds,  who are the best on-the-ground fighters against ISIS … yet America’s close ally Turkey is trying to wipe out the Kurds.

Moreover, the U.S., Turkey and Saudi Arabia are all using the Incerlik air base in Adana, Turkey, on the border with Syria to launch military operations in Syria.

The U.S. is using Incerlik to SUPPORT the Kurds, but Turkey is using the EXACT SAME air base to BOMB the Kurds.

In addition, the U.S. is supporting Shia Muslims in Iraq … but supporting their arch-enemy – Sunnis Muslims – in neighboring Syria.

And the U.S. claims to be fighting the war on terror AGAINST the exact same groups – ISIS and Al Qaeda – that our closest allies are SUPPORTING.

Absolutely insane …

Unless the U.S. is really pursuing an agenda in which chaos is the goal.

Let's not bicker and argue about who killed who.

We are here today to witness the union of two or more combatants in the joyful bond of the unholy deadlock.

Unfortunately, one of them, my Al-Qæda, has just fallen to his death.

But I think I've not lost a son, so much as... gained a daughter!

For, since the tragic death of her father--
He's not quite dead!

Since the near fatal wounding of her father--
He's getting better!

For, since her own father... who, when he seemed about to recover, suddenly felt the icy hand of death upon him,...
Oh, he's died!

And I want his only daughter to look upon me... as her own dad -- in a very real, and legally binding sense.

Looking forward when all these wars will finally move to the US soil, CIA and Pentagon will have the then the biggest opportunity to show the dumbed US folks living in their buble freedom how does it feel to be murdered by millions as they have been doing it for over a century around the world.

Just wondering who will be profiting from the wars then.. maybe the US oligarchy will move out of US and continue at the battlefield USA from abroad.

Insanity none... Just revenue and profit.. big profit .  And Chaos.

Chaos in the region benefits Israel. Never let any good crisis go to waste - Rahm GSachs.

ISrael buys ISIS Iraque and Syrian oil for 15-20$ a barrel.

A: lot of military equipment , software, used american cars sold. Israel has mossad involved on all fronts.  They do all communication- both fronts/sides.

B: Pharmaceuticals have the time of their life supporting-drugging 'fighters'.

C: oil as cheap as 15-20$ a barrel never cheaper in history

D: Oil in the East is allmost all Rotschild's business does he get - more or less and - for  what pricing.

E: Israel has the time of its life - free oil-  free fighters SA pays most 600$ a month - future  Gas and Oil fields for free.

Looks like insanity on the outside....doing the same -' jewish mistake '- over and over again.            

Profits and all NON-TAXED are insane. 100% Natural meaning...Purely made up out of human blood and suffering. 

This is US Goverment and ISrael at their highest performance.                                                           ISrael is a Luciferian Nation. Luciferians- Rotschilds Blankfeins Rockefellers - feast and worship (literally)  Skull & Bones.

Here you see their  'religion' philosphy in action and everyday life. What they do to Syrians and Libians Muslims Iraqies  they (can) do to a citizen in US or Eu (differrent ways).

Skull & Bones do not vary  nor change colour  nor culture  nor religion.  

With these Jewish Luciferians - their mentality - Outcome War Fraud Corruption Chaos Death cannot be any different .

RFK Jr : ISIS Created By Washington Over Syria Pipeline Refusal

By GPD on February 24, 2016

Kennedy: Daesh is a By-Product of Washington's Drive for Qatari Gas

Washington military planners decided to remove Bashar al-Assad from power using seasoned jihadist fighters because the Syrian president refused to back the Qatari project to build a gas pipeline through Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria and Turkey, radio host, attorney and nephew of US President John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. asserted.

The $10 billion pipeline project first surfaced in 2000. Nine years later Bashar al-Assad announced that he would not support the initiative that would have granted Qatar direct access to European energy markets via terminals in Turkey.

Soon after that “the CIA began funding opposition groups in Syria,” Kennedy wrote for Politico. The CIA went ahead with this plan months before the Arab Spring uprising in Syria took place, which clearly indicates that the Syrian conflict is in fact a violent foreign-sponsored insurgency aimed at bringing a pipeline project to life, not a civil war for greater rights or representation.

Moreover, “US intelligence planners knew from the outset that their pipeline proxies were radical jihadists who would probably carve themselves a brand new Islamic caliphate from the Sunni regions of Syria and Iraq,” Kennedy observed.

FILE – In this photo taken Monday, June 23, 2014, fighters from the Islamic State group parade in a commandeered Iraqi security forces armored vehicle down a main road at the northern city of Mosul, Iraq

This is what happened when Daesh fighters launched a blitz offensive on the second largest Iraqi city of Mosul from their Syrian stronghold of Raqqa in June 2014. They later declared an Islamic caliphate on the territories under Daesh control, shocking the world with their brutality, financial resources and military capabilities.

“Not coincidentally, the regions of Syria occupied by the Islamic State exactly encompass the proposed route of the Qatari pipeline,” the expert added.

If completed, the project would have had major geopolitical implications. Ankara would have profited from “rich transit fees.” The project would have also given “the Sunni kingdoms of the Persian Gulf decisive domination of world natural gas markets and strengthen Qatar, America’s closest ally in the Arab world,” the expert noted.

In addition, the pipeline would have also strengthened Saudi Arabia by giving the oil kingdom additional leverage against Iran, whom Riyadh sees as its archenemy.

Insanity is the new norm, a sane thinker the new outcast.

Children are not supposed to be taught to be leaders and thinkers, they are only supposed to be taught to be good little point-headed corporate slaves.

Ignorance is the kool-aid dujur. Here are the latest point blank in your face facts, mam'. Any one who can see this and can't understand that this criminality is nothing less than evil to the nth degree, is just as satanically evil as this horrid hag is. Insanity is thinking and believing that evil, is good.

In the end you are a good soul, or an evil one. Each gets to sleep in the Karmic Bed they make in the afterlife. The spiritual being every soul is, is real compared to the material world that is the illusion.

Here's one of those illusions. One that just does not bring a comfort to the true human being.

A thinker is an outcast - sane or insane...

"We all have a tendency to think that the world must conform to our prejudices. The opposite view involves some effort of thought, and most people would die sooner than think – in fact they do so."

The CIA does not represent Amerikan policy as it is an arm of MI6 and subject to HRM whims.

Americans really thought that it was in their interest to invade Iraq? Syria? Libya? Nah - Amerika has fought every useless British War since the turn of the last century. Why else would Amerika adopt the Imperial Law around the same time - State Secrecy, Income Tax, The Feral Reserve, Neutered States, National Security Act, and on and on...

Amerikans for some strange reason seem to love being gang-raped by the Crown. Same as it has always been and Amerikans are too blind to see the obvious flaw in their "Special Relationship", as in, being HRM's Bitch in every useless friking war and policy. Good luck with your Colony...

>>The CIA does not represent Amerikan policy as it is an arm of MI6 and subject to HRM whims.<<

And Amerika isn't?

I would say that a better description of the ruling oligarchy is "Debt-Money Monopolist" and not simply HRM. HRM is a subset of the Debt-Money Monopoly, but the entire group is incredibly powerful and it isn't clear that the HRM is even the most powerful subset of the Debt-Money Monopoly cartel.

If indeed 'buzzfeed" has there story correct then Russia will be continuing the campaign of kicking our fucking asses in new innovative ways that were never thought possible!

I happen to believe that like the Seymour Hersh PR psyops stunt of a story about DOD not following orders from the Commander-in-Chief and "going rogue" on him in those Countries they already destroyed is still committing treason no matter how you slice it.... is all simply a way of attempting to draw Russia in closer to get intel on them while they continue to work miracles on our "proxies" which is depelting our stable of Mercs R' Us day by day.

The event that took place this past weekend in Homs and Damascus is indicative of just that. And if Russia did indeed make the mistake of giving too much information out to Uncle Sam, the U.S. military and Langley won't be enjoying that luxury again!...

I'm pretty certain that "Winter Soldier" Kerry's desire to carve up Syria should the cease fire aka Plan B not come to fruition... It was always the Only Option on the table for Langley and the Pentagon!!

In short the CIA is at the head of the MIC always has been and always will be until it's time of death which may be coming sooner than we think!
