Obama’s “Fake War” against the Islamic State (ISIS)

The Islamic State is Protected by the US and its Allies

Global Research

Since August 2014, the US Air Force with the support of a coalition of 19 countries has relentlessly waged an intensified air campaign againstSyria and Iraq allegedly targeting the Islamic State brigades.

According to Defense News, over 16,000 airstrikes were carried out from August 2014 to mid January 2015. Sixty percent of the air strikes were conducted by the US Air Force using advanced jet fighter and bombing capabilities (Aaron Mehta, “A-10 Performing 11 Percent of Anti-ISIS Sorties”. Defense News, January 19, 2015.)

The airstrikes have been casually described by the media as part of a “soft” counter-terrorism operation, rather than an act of all out war directed against Syria and Iraq.

This large scale air campaign which has resulted in countless civilian casualties has been routinely misreported by the mainstream media. According to Max Boot, senior fellow in national security at the Council on Foreign Relations. ”Obama’s strategy in Syria and Iraq is not working… [ because] the U.S. bombing campaign against ISIShas been remarkably restrained”. (Newsweek, February 17, 2015, emphasis added).

Americans are led to believe that the Islamic State constitutes a formidable force confronting the US military and threatening Western Civilization.

Obama should get his act together in confronting the “outside enemy” of America. According to CFR Max Boot, military escalation is the answer: what is required is for the president “to dispatch more aircraft, military advisers, and special operations forces, while loosening the restrictions under which they operate.” (Ibid)

What kind of aircraft are involved in the air campaign? The F-16 Fighting Falcon,(above right) The F-15E Strike Eagle (image below) , The A-10 Warthog, not to mention Lockheed Martin’s F-22 Raptor stealth tactical fighter aircraft.

Question for Our Readers

Why has the US Air Force not been able to wipe out the Islamic State which at the outset was largely equipped with conventional small arms not to mention state of the art Toyota pickup trucks?

F-15E Strike Eagle.jpg

From the very outset, this air campaign has NOT been directed against ISIS. The evidence confirms that the Islamic State is not the target. Quite the opposite.

The air raids are intended to destroy the economic infrastructure of Iraq and Syria.

The USAF-15E Strike Eagle

We call on our readers to carefully reflect on the following image, which describes the Islamic State convoy of pickup trucks entering Iraq and crossing a 200 km span of open desert which separates the two countries.

This convoy entered Iraq in June 2014.

What would have been required from a military standpoint to wipe out an ISIS convoy with no effective anti-aircraft capabilities?

Without an understanding of military issues, common sense prevails.

If they had wanted to eliminate the Islamic State brigades, they could have carpet bombed their convoys of Toyota pickup trucks when they crossed the desert from Syria into Iraq in June.

The answer is pretty obvious, yet not a single mainstream media has acknowledged it.

The Syro-Arabian Desert is open territory (see map right). With state of the art jet fighter aircraft (F15, F22 Raptor, F16) it would have been –from a military standpoint– ”a piece of cake”, a rapid and expedient surgical operation,which would have decimated the Islamic State convoys in a matter of hours.

Instead what we have witnessed is an ongoing drawn out six months of relentless air raids and bombings, and the terrorist enemy is apparently still intact.

(In comparison, the NATO bombing raids of Yugoslavia in 1999 lasted about three months (March 24-June 10, 1999).

And we are led to believe that the Islamic State cannot be defeated by a powerful US led military coalition of 19 countries.

The air campaign was not intended to decimate the Islamic State.

The counter-terrorism mandate is a fiction. America is the Number One State Sponsor of Terrorism.

The Islamic State is not only protected by the US and its allies, it is trained and financed by US-NATO, with the support of Israel and Washington’s Persian Gulf allies.

DER’AH:  It is no laughing matter.  The filth-merchant, Hashemite whore-mongering child molester and dwarf half-breed, Abdullah II, has all but declared war on us.  Now, it is time to make war against him and his rag-tag band of flea-infested bedouins.  There is no other conclusion to be drawn from the open collaboration with the Tay-Sachs breeding degenerate Zionist Ghetto State than that the British runt has thrown himself wholeheartedly into the fray with genocidal Erdoghan, the Saudi rat-monkeys, the Qatari cockroaches and the American war criminals.

Al-Mitaa’iyya on the Jordanian border:  In broad daylight, the “army” of Jordan gave a pack of rats belonging to Alqaeda logistical support as they penetrated Syrian sovereign territory between Control Post 62 and Control Post 63.  Armed with 5 American pickup trucks with 23mm cannons, GPS equipment, American satellite communications gear and maps provided by the Jordanians, the convoy came out of Samaa, Jordan and crashed into instant death because of the Big Surprise.  Monzer reports over 14 dead rodents lie in the wastelands between the 2 regions of Natural Syria with the carcasses rotting appropriately into the soil.  Many were able to rush back to Jordan where they were seen being met by Jordanian officers.  Make no mistake about it, we are at war with Jordan.

Der’ah City:  Masterfully planned raids were the order of the day here at the Media Building, the Main Post Office, Southwest of the SyriaTel Building, Al-Seeba Quarter and the Suwaydaan Neighborhood.  Over 20 rodents killed. I have no names.

Jaydoor:  With all fortifications now compromised, the SAA is advancing into this town and killing all remaining rodents.

Tal Al-‘Ulaaqiyya Village at the Dayr-Al-‘Adas-Kafr Naasij-Kafr Shams triangle, the SAA killed all these:

‘Abduh Muhammad Al-Qarqa’iy

Daawood Hussayn Al-Hajjaan

Rabee’ Tawfeeq Muhammad

Ibraaheem Al-Hareeri

Khaleel Ibraaheem Al-Mubasbis

Saleem ‘Ali Salaama 

Another 4 could not be identified.



إحباط محاولة تسلل من الأراضي الأردنية.. والجيش السوري يواصل عملياته في ريف درعاKhaan Al-Shaykh:  The terrorists here cannot hold out much longer with all the attrition.  They are unable to bring in supplies and their situation has, therefore, become hopeless.





Fu`aad Farrookh

2 vans were also destroyed in the fighting.

Al-Qalamoon near Faaleeta:  The SAA and PDC wiped out an entire pack of jackals here:

‘Umar Muhammad Mu’adhdhamaani

Khaalid Muhammad Tayoora

Muhammad Khaalid Bakr

‘Ali Qaasim Faaris

Maalik Shukri Hamdaan

Khaalid ‘Abdul-Razzaaq Jayroodiyya

Muhammad Ahmad Al-Naatoor

Al-Habbaariyya Village:  In the west rural at the entrance, a firefight took place.  No details.

‘Ayn Al-Bustaan Village: Very precise artillery barrage near Sa’sa’ where Nusra is located resulted in many rat deaths.

Jabal Sees:  This area is in the far southeast of Damascus Province.  A pickup truck with 23mm cannons was destroyed and all aboard killed.

Pakistani Mercenaries Arrive in Bahrain


General Zia ul-Haq in Jordan.

News comes from Bahrain that a detachment of Jordanian troops has arrived in Manama to work alongside Bahraini forces. They plan to quell the Tamarod movement, which takes to the streets on August 14, the 42nd anniversary of Bahrain’s independence from Britain. It is also one more bout in the long-running campaign for political rights in a principality run, since 1783, by the House of al-Khalifa. Generations have taken to the streets on behalf of liberal rights and political rights, having won for themselves two constitutions (1973 and 2002) that guaranteed a National Assembly. These promises have come to naught, as the al-Khalifa regime holds fast to its feudal prerogatives, untouched by a century of British rule and by a half century of the presence of a mammoth US base in Bahrain’s capital, Manama. In February 2011, as part of the Arab Spring, unrest took hold of Bahrain. It was crushed, once more with help from outside – not only the Bahraini forces but also the Jazeera force of the Gulf Cooperation Council (mainly Saudi troops with mercenaries from elsewhere).

It is in mind of these mercenaries that I write my short note. In 2011, al-Jazeera’s Mujib Mashal reported the presence of as many as three thousand Pakistani troops in the Bahrain armed forces, including the National Guard and the Special Forces. Bahrain’s own troops number only twelve thousand, with a twelve hundred body National Guard. The Pakistani detachment is a significant emolument for the Bahrain troops. Today, Manama Voice reports that amongst the Jordanian troops that have arrived in the capital, a significant number are once more Pakistanis. This is not the first time Pakistani troops have been involved in the internal struggles in the Arab world – most spectacularly, it was Brigadier Zia ul-Haq, as a “trainer” from the Central Treaty Organization (CENTO), who led the 40th armored brigade of the 2nd Division of the Jordanian armed forces to crush the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) and to hold off a Syrian attack in northern Jordan. A proper study is needed of the role of Brigadier Zia in these battles. What is clear is that his is the antecedent for the current role of Pakistani mercenaries in Bahrain, poised to crack down on the protesters.

Tragically, the regime in Bahrain has depicted the democracy struggle as a Shia-Sunni battle, with al-Khalifa as the shield of the Sunnis and the al-Wefaq party as the political device not only of the Shias but also of Iranian interference in the Arabian Peninsula. This is a corruption of the facts on the ground. From the first protests in February of 2011, the crowds chanted, “No Sunni, No Shia. We are one.” Bahrain’s feudal regime has, however, played up the Shia-Sunni divide. In the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, it used a general religiosity to cut down the rise of Nasserite and Communist groups such as the widely successful National Union Committee and the National Liberation Front. The March Intifada of 1965 was the high-point of this left-wing thrust. It was from its ashes that the Islamic Front for the Liberation of Bahrain emerged in 1981, opening the door to a religiously-defined political space – but not reducible to a Shia one. It is a cruel act of history that al-Khalifa turns to Pakistani troops at the time when a widening anti-Shia tendency opens up in Pakistan, with the attacks on Shia shrines and on Shia places of gathering. It provides fertile ground for a regime that wants to attract this anti-Shia thrust, properly fierce in its crackdown against what the regime depicts as a Shia political uprising. Or at least that’s the plan.

The other great irony is that Pakistan and Bahrain share an independence day. It is today, August 14 that the Pakistani troops will oil their guns and march out near the Pearl Monument to fire at Bahraini protesters. One hopes that a splinter of patriotism for their own August 14 would still the hands of the troops. One hopes that the sounds of Faiz Ahmed Faiz’ admonishment to monarchs will ring out in their ears.

Bahrain: Zionist puppet Al Khalifa Deploys Fighter Jets to Jordan for ISIL Fight

By: Sammi Ibrahem,Sr


Zionist Puppet regime of Bahrain has deployed warplanes to Jordan to support the CIA-Mossad led air campaign against the Zio-Wahhabi Takfiri group ISIL, Jordan’s information minister said on Monday.The move comes a week after the United Arab Emirates deployed an F-16 squadron to Jordan to take part in the air strikes against the extremists.Bahrain sends warplanes to Jordan for ISIL fight“This move highlights the brotherly ties between Jordan and Bahrain, and comes in line with our belief in the importance of the war against terrorism,” Zionist King Information Minister Mohammad al-Momani told AFP.

“Jordan appreciates the support provided by Bahrain, as we also appreciate UAE support too.”

The UAE had suspended its participation in the air campaign against ISIL in Syria after a Jordanian pilot was captured by the Zio-Wahhabi Takfiris in December but resumed it last week after ISIL posted grisly video of the airman’s murder.

Zionist Puppet Bahraini regime media did not specify the number of aircraft that had been sent to Jordan on Sunday but said the deployment was to assist in “international efforts to eliminate terrorism.”

‘Uqaab Al-Ma’aaz (His first name means “vulture”. How appropriate)

Muhammad Hussayn Al-Masaalima

Al-Musayfira:  The SAA has reached and blocked the northern entrance to this town killing 7 Nusra jackals. No details 

Jaydoor:  As you know from that communique we published and translated from “Colonel Major Al-Mir’iy”, this area is under heavy SAA attack.  The last defenses have fallen and the rats inside are preparing for the cruise down the River Styx.  A few hours left to go.

Tal Matooq in Al-Lijaat:  A pickup with 23mm cannon was destroyed:

‘Abbaas ‘Anwar Al-Khayyaat

Mahmoud ‘Abdul-Waliy

Al-Shaykh Miskeen:  At a military checkpoint near the irrigation pump, the SAA monitored a vehicle on the road to Qarfaa.  It was a van carrying armed terrorists.  It was incinerated.  No details.

Al-Nu’ayma Town:  East of the “Center” at the entrance to the city. Firefight with no details.

Al-Hiraak:  An assault on an SAA checkpoint was botched by incompetent jackals.  12 terrorists were counted dead with most weapons bearing evidence of Zionist manufacture.

More fighting reported here:  Old Customs Building, Busraa Square, Zimreen on northern hilltop, Tal Qareen, North ‘Aqraba 






بالفيديو، معارك الجيش السوري و" النصرة" بريف دمشقALEPPO:  The Syrian Army has established control over most of Aleppo’s northern rural countryside in a sudden, devastating attack on NATO’s terrorist rodents in the area.  Using artillery and missiles in a new and nerve-shattering way which the terrorists have never seen before last night, the SAA has advanced remarkably into Nibbul and Al-Zahraa`.

Nibbul and Al-Zahraa`:  Special operations units no more than 50 troops have entered the 2 towns of Nibbul and Al-Zahra` as of last night.  They could be seen talking to locals with the naked eye as the SAA major assault force is not less than 1 km from the two towns.  The SF unit came out of the recently liberated village of Rutyaan which is now protected by members of Liwaa` Al-Quds, a militia made up of locals from the southern Aleppan rural area.

Al-Zahraa` Association Suburb:  Advancing again out of the Air Force Intelligence Complex, SAA and AFI agents have succeeded in liberating another 7 blocks as rat communications demonstrate an anxiety about when the DeMistura “freeze” will take place.

Al-Raashideen:  In the 4th District, the SAA has advanced markedly using heavy artillery and rockets.

Shayhaan Roundabout:  The SAA has opened up this area as a prelude to the assault on Al-Shaykh Maqsood.


'D,J4The following towns and villages were liberated last night:

Dayr Al-Zaytoon

Rape as a Weapon of War, Made in the USA?

Global Research

Its really 19th century behavior in the 21st century, you just dont invade another country on phony pretexts in order to assert your interests.” (Secretary of State, John Kerry, Meet the Press, 2nd March 2014.)

Various professional psychology sites state succinctly: Projection is a defense mechanism which involves taking our own unacceptable qualities or feelings and ascribing them to other people.

Further: Projection tends to come to the fore in normal people at times of crisis, personal or political, but is more commonly found in the neurotic or psychotic – in personalities functioning at a primitive level as in narcissistic personality disorder or borderline personality disorder, opines Wiki.

With that in mind it is worth returning to the assault on Libya and the allegation by Susan Rice, then US Ambassador to the UN, in April 2011, that the Libyan government was issuing Viagra to its troops, instructing them to use rape as a weapon of terror.

However, reported (1) MSNBC was told:

by US military and intelligence officials that there is no basis for Rices claims. While rape has been reported as a weapon in many conflicts, the US officials (said) theyve seen no such reports out of Libya.

Several diplomats also questioned Rices lack of evidence suspecting she was attempting:

to persuade doubters the conflict in Libya was not just a standard civil war but a much nastier fight in which Gadhafi is not afraid to order his troops to commit heinous acts.

The story was reminiscent of the pack of lies which arguably sealed the 1991 US led Iraq onslaught – of Iraqi troops leaving premature babies to die after stealing their incubators. The story of course, was dreamt up by global public relations company, Hill and Knowlton Strategies, Inc., then described as the words largest PR company which had been retained by the Kuwait government.

A tearful hospital volunteer, Nayirah gave testimony which reverberated around an appalled world. It transpired she was the daughter of the Kuwaiti Ambassador to Washington and was neither a volunteer, witness, nor in Kuwait. Amnesty International obligingly backed up the fictional nonsense suffering lasting credibility damage. However, as Libya two decades later, Iraqs fate was sealed.

The US Ambassador the UN, Susan Rice and Foreign Affairs advisor, Samantha Power are credited with helping persuade President Obama to intervene in Libya. By the end of April 2011, Rice was also pushing for intervention in Syria, claiming that President Assad was: seeking Iranian assistance in repressing Syria’s citizens … In the light of all, she vowed: The United States will continue to stand up for democracy and respect for human rights, the universal rights that all human beings deserve in Syria and around the world. (Guardian, 29th April 2011.)

Looking across the world at the apocalyptic ruins of lives and nations resultant from Americas continuance in uninvited standing up for democracy, human rights and universal rights there are surely few who could not only silently weep.

Amnesty, perhaps once bitten not only questioned the Libya Viagra nonsense but denied it in categorical terms. According to Donatella Rovera, their Senior Crisis Response Advisor, who spent three months in Libya from the start of the crisis: We have not found any evidence or a single victim of rape or a doctor who knew about somebody being raped.(2)

Liesel Gerntholtz, heading Womens Rights at Human Rights Watch which also investigated the mass rape allegations stated: We have not been able to find evidence.

The then Secretary of State, Hillary We came, we saw, he died Clinton, was deeply concerned stating that: Rape, physical intimidation, sexual harassment and even so-called virginity tests were taking place not only in Libya, but throughout the region. Presumably leaving the way open for further plundering throughout Africa in the guise of bestowing democracy, human rights etc.

Luis Moreno-Ocampo, Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court obediently weighed in telling a Press Conference of: … information that there was a policy to rape in Libya those that were against the government. Apparently (Colonel Gaddafi) used it to punish people. A bit of a blow for the impartiality and meticulous evidence of the ICC it might be thought.

A week after the bombing of Libya started in March 2011, Eman al-Obeidy burst in to a Tripoli hotel telling the international journalists there she had been raped. She was removed by Libyan security. Government spokespeople claimed she had mental health problems, was drunk, a thief a prostitute and would be charged with slander. The world sneered.

By June 2011 Ms al-Obeidy had ended up in Boulder, Colorado, US, granted asylum with remarkable speed, with the help of Hillary Clinton, according to US news outlets.

In November 2014 al-Obeidy, now known as Eman Ali, was arrested violating conditions of her bail bond and probation. It was her third arrest. Prosecutors allege that she tested positive for opiates and alcohol. The probation and bail bond relate to an alleged assault case in a Boulder bar with Ms al-Obeidy-Ali accused of pouring drink over a customer and then lobbing a glass at her. (3,4) The trial is scheduled for 17th February with the possibility of her asylum status being rescinded.

However, back to projection. It transpires that the Pentagon has been supplying Viagra to US troops since 1998. That year it spent $50 million, to keep troops, well, stiffened up: The cost, roughly, of two Marine Corps Harrier jets or forty five Tomahawk cruise missiles …(5)

By 2014 the cost of extra-curricular military forces frolics had risen to an astonishing $504,816 of taxpayers moneys. An additional $17,000-plus was spent on two further erectile enhancing magic potions.

The Washington Free Beacon helpfully estimated:

that the amount of Viagra bought by the Pentagon last year could have supplied 80,770 hours, 33 minutes, and 36 seconds of sexual enhancement, assuming that erections don’t last longer than the 4 hour maximum advised by doctors.(6)

Surely coincidentally, on 14th February, St Valentines Day, Joachim Hagopian released an article: Sexual Assault in the US Military – More Rapists Attend the Air Force Academy Than Any Other College in America. (7)

In a survey taken in 2012 an unprecedented number of over 26,000 incidents of unwanted sexual contact was reported by service men and women. Further, weekly: another high profile officer often in charge of reducing assaults was being investigated and charged himself.

The US Air Force at Colorado Springs, writes Hagopian: has more rapists on Campus than any other college in the country.

But then the US military planners would seem to be sex and bodily function obsessed. In 1994 they contemplated releasing pheromones (a hormonal stimulus) against enemy troops: to turn enemy soldiers into flaming love puppets whose objects of affection would be each other. (8)

While enemy troops were preoccupied with making love instead of war … Americas finest could blow them to bits. This bit of military dementia was dubbed the gay bomb.

Also dreamed up have been halitosis, flatulence and vomit inducing chemicals to unleash on foes. Body function obsession clearly rules in the armed forces, officially and unofficially.

Projection: … is more commonly found … in personalities functioning at a primitive level. Indeed. And to think both Saddam Hussein and Colonel Gaddafi were labeled mad by such as these.

France: Fascisation in Europe

Image result for FRENCH National Front LOGO
In France today, in the aftermath of the murders in a Kosher butcher shop and at the Charlie Hebdo publication, there is legitimate outrage and attempts by the French goverment to take police action against such atrocities.  But something else is happening, no where near as dramatic but in its own way as sinister.  A serious scholarly work, defending Soviet policy as directed the Stalin leadership of the USSR during WWII, a work that would not have been considered remarkable in France in the past  has been  been rejected for cataloguing by the Sorbonne, a leading European university.
As the petitioners state, the Sorbonne’s library includes many fiercely anti-Soviet and anti-Communist polemical works, including the work of the German Historian, Ernst Nolte, who in recent years has emerged as a kind of apologist for Hitler fascism by define it as a reaction to the Soviet and Communist danger,minus of course the anti-Semitism of the Nazis.
In France today, there is a powerful neo-fascist party,the National Front, historically supporters of the collaborationist Vichy government during WWII and also rabidly anti-Communist and anti-Semitic, which has in recent years substituted anti-Muslim and anti-foreign worker bigotry for its traditional political anti-Semitism.
It has been gaining strength in France recently and this action by the Sorbonne, in the spirit of the old collaborators, will no doubt win its approval. If one set of opinions  and evaluations are omitted consciously, on these specious grounds, one has done the work of the Nazi book burners of yesterday and the “McCarthyites” in the U.S. who took various books, including those of W.E..B Dubois out of U.S. libraries in the 1950s.  I urge all of our readers to sign this petition and say to those who safely proclaim, “Je Suis Charlie Hebdo,”  “Je Suis Geoffrey Roberts, “Stalin’s Wars: From World War to Cold War, 1939-1953.”  Please use the links to sign the petition and pass it on
Norman Markowitz
A user of the Sorbonne University’s Pierre Mendès France Library recently proposed to a librarian that the library acquire the French edition of Stalin’s Wars: From World War to Cold War 1939-1953 by Geoffrey Roberts, professor at the University of Cork in Ireland and Fellow of the Royal Historical Society. The book was published in French in 2014 by Editions Delga, and originally published in English in 2006 by Yale University Press. The proposal received the following response:
 “The proposed work, although it was written by a university professor, does not in principle seem to us to display the historical and scientific neutrality required for it to be included on our shelves. Nor do the other books published by the same publishing house.”
It appears that, in the past, the library had accepted all our books concerning philosophy and marxism but has suddenly banned our books about USSR, including yours and a book of Henri Alleg.
In the sad context of fascisation in Europe, Annie Lacroix-Riz, Godefroy Clair and myself have launched a petition, that 1200 people have already signed.
Here is the site where you can find the petition :
