The Islamic State in Syria and Iraq (ISIS Caliphate)

They say ISIS is the most capable military force in the Middle East outside of Zionist Occupied Palestine. ISIS supposedly began as the Muslim resistance to the USA invasion and occupation of Iraq. In case anyone forgot, a decade ago, the Bush administration made up a fairy tale about “Weapons of Mass Destruction” and the US, still believing that other fairy tale about the demolition of World Trade Center Buildings 1, 2, and 7, mostly went along with it. Contractors like Dick Cheney’s Halliburton and mercenary groups like Blackwater made billions off of the US military and taxpayers.

Years ago, an outraged soldier testified about how Halliburton, since it was paid per truck delivery, would run empty trucks on a dangerous road through insurgent forces. Ripping off the taxpayer wasn’t the outrage, that was expected. That was just money. But US soldiers would have to guard the empty trucks, and they were getting killed in insurgent attacks. Of course, talking about Halliburton back in those days just made you a liberal Democrat, and every conservative white man had decided he was an expert on Islam and how the terrorists blah blah blah and now we have to take our shoes off at the airport.

Well, Bush lost the war, then Obama lost it again, and now a bunch of radical Sunnis are declaring their own radical Sunni state in Iraq and Syria, and entertaining the West with the sort of enrichment diversity will be bring us just as soon as we bring in more hard working immigrant families to cure us of our White Privilege.

You know, beheadings, stonings, stuff like that.

So at one time ISIS was known as “Al-Qaeda in Iraq” but when it stopped working in US interests, the Official Al-Qaeda Franchise authorization was withdrawn. If all this is confusing for you, you’re not the only one. You see, the Muslims are on top of our oil, so we have to remove them one way or another. So the plan apparently is to bomb their countries, turn them into refugees, and then bring them to Europe and America. You know, like the Weather Underground used to say during Vietnam, we’re “bringing the war home.”

Still, the conservatives and Republicans bought the 9/11 fairy tale hook, line, and sinker, a plot line so moronic it wouldn’t have gotten a green light at a B-movie film festival, that improbable tale of exploding buildings and highjacked airliners. And the only reason that the CIA, the DIA, the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, FAA, FBI and the NRO couldn’t stop 9/11 because of … and this is the official reason given by the 9/11 Commission as well as former Bush administration official Condaleeza Rice … “a failure of imagination.” You see, “no one could have imagined they would use planes as missiles.” Plus, never mind the third building that wasn’t hit by a plane, it just collapsed on itself out of sympathy for its Twin brothers, you see.

But however gullible the public is, our officials are good at starting fires but not nearly as good as controlling them, much less putting them out. Now we have military brass telling us they wouldn’t be surprised if some ISIS radical showed up in DC on the mall with an AK-47. When the Washington Monument then collapses on itself, they can say no one expected they were going to use bullets, or something.

What’s your limit? How ridiculous do their stories have to get before even you won’t buy it?

  1. This ISIS group has been fishy from the git-go. US-funded, US-armed, US-manned, and conveniently satisfying neocon dreams of an excuse for further engagement in Iraq as a backdoor to resuscitated Syrian intervention. Multiple Americans identified among ISIS fighters come from a single Minneapolis high school. (Search for CIA jobs in Minneapolis, by the way, and you’ll find a listing for an “information warfare” opening. Coincidence?) The Foley beheading video is pretty obviously fake. Throw in TV and radio hype, a ton of sensationalist articles about “9/11 chatter” and claims about ISIS’s intentions to do everything from detonating a nuclear bomb to assassinating the pope, and it all adds up to potentially infamous (and familiarly fraudulent) 9/11/14. I don’t expect anything on the scale of 9/11/01, but I’ve had a feeling for a while that something is going to take place on this year’s (unlucky 13th) anniversary, so as to stir and revive the war fever in the faithful.


    1. This is why sometimes conservatives seem so dim, at least, about the little race war they started between rednecks and ragheads. Conservatives were all gung ho to start it, and when Condi Rice essentially said, “let you two fight it out” the rednecks said, “yes ma’am!” Hell, I even remember and the like talking about how hot Condi was.

      And don’t even get me started on what the “Christians” said.

      The best way to control the opposition is to lead the opposition. So, you have a bunch of “radical Muslims” in “Al Qaeda” that fly from one place to the other, always well armed and well funded. Where does the money come from? Rich Saudis. Who are the USA’s greatest allies, other than the shitty little country, in the Middle East? The Saudi Royals, the Saudi Arabian ruling class. You know, the Bush family’s business partners. Where all the oil comes from.

      It’s almost funny. The Bush family have major business and personal interests in Kuwait. Yet this fact never seems to be mentioned in the context of the US being at war with Kuwait’s neighbors – like Iraq – for twenty something years. You know, the twenty something years that the Bush family, and their frenemy Bill Clinton, have been in charge of the US?

      It’s sort of like someone taking a shit in your living room, and every time a house guest shows up and asks, “what’s that smell?” everyone has half a dozens ways of not talking about the shit in the living room.

      Still, the USA must be the perfect mix of cowards and fools. You know, to allow something like 9/11, and no one even got fired. No one even got charged.

      As for “Al Qaeda” – do you remember Adam Gadahm, Al Qaeda’s “Media Coordinator” that was all over the media for the last decade? His real name was “Adam Pearlman,” a Jew from California. An actor. Then, there was Joseph Cohen of New York, who played “Yuseph Al-Katab” the leader of “Revolution Muslim” and was all over the New York Post.

      So, the Hipster Jihadis of ISIS, you know, whatever is going on over in Raghead Land, who knows, I’m sure they like their Islam the more radically the better. But this TV show is like watching the GI Joe cartoons with Cobra Commander. Or professional wrestling. I’m not the type of guy that would tell kids that Santa Claus doesn’t exist, but when I hear adult men telling me Santa Claus is real, I start to back away slowly.

      The brilliant thing about it is both sides, the Rednecks and the Ragheads, are watching the same TV show, and rooting for different characters.


      1. Most whites, liberals and conservatives alike, deserve the various manifestations of hell that await them. I think I’ve finally decided to give up and wash my hands of my father’s political re-education. I’ve managed to convince him that 9/11 was an Israeli-American job, but no matter what he learns (or quickly forgets) from revisionist commentators at my instigation, he always waddles back to the trough to dip his snout in the reassuring savor of Zionist sewage.

        Even after I’ve repeatedly tried to hammer into his head the fact that the Republicans work for forces hostile to average Americans like him and collaborate with the perpetrators of 9/11 and other treacheries, he admits he’ll probably vote Republican in 2016 no matter who gets the nomination. When I reminded him that Romney actually had Dov Zakheim as his foreign policy advisor, his placidly bovine answer was, “They’re better than the Democrats.”

        This past weekend, I asked him a question to gauge the depth of his psychological degradation. I asked, “If you could choose either to (a) see the perpetrators of 9/11 hanged; or (b) get a lifetime’s supply of free potato chips, which would you pick?” He picked the chips.
