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as “Al-Qaeda in Iraq” but when it stopped working in US interests, the Official Al-Qaeda Franchise authorization was withdrawn.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?
