I'm sure there are US military tents left behind all over Iraq. The fact that IS? captured some when they conquered one of the Iraqi towns is not surprising. If the basis of this debate is because of the presence of these tents, you have non-existent argument.

There's no question that ISIS is a product of US foreign policy; and I would go on to say that US foreign policy never makes mistakes (though it sometimes represents certain outcomes as mistakes because that's the most convenient way to market a goal to the electorate); but that video is ridiculous. The mainstream news has been filled with reports of ISIS using US military supplies, even heavy weapons, that they captured from the Iraqi army and other known beneficiaries.

Here, let me give you a clue....see if you can connect the dots....

I can't believe you guys don't get it! This shit was decided quite a while ago..and I've been turning you onto what it's about. To facilitate this Rockefeller assured Clinton the Presidency, if Clinton agreed to push through NAFTA..before Clinton was even running!...and voila, Canada and the U.S. were setting the stage. With it came a 60/40 trade import and export agreement with the two countries. The environmental stuff NEVER was a consideration!!..even when Carter put the expanded drilling ban into place. It's all about the trade agreement with Saudi Arabia...we buy their oil..they buy our bonds...and that is also the reason the Mideast is in warring turmoil. ...the region MUST be too screwed up to 'honor' the agreement...or should I say, it must be UN-stabilized..so we can drill here...and they are stuck with all those worthless bonds...by their 'no longer in place government'. We done 'em dirty...it was planned before Obama was president. It would have gone down, no matter who was elected. Only the duped dopes think there was any other way.
I've called this shit accurate, BEFORE IT HAPPENED, on quite a few subjects, for quite a while..you'd think by now, that you'd listen up. ...but NO-O-O-O-O-OOO, You've gotta still think stupidly along party lines....ain't that so, Bobert?

Absolutely he will!..He's been a phony.
Two years ago, on Mudcat, I said he would, and have maintained it all long. First, I believe we'll see an uprising in Jordan, then Saudi Arabia. The fraudulently inflated gas prices will cause the people to either demand it, or welcome it....and Obama will be seen as a 'hero'..but it's all been bullshit from day one!

GfS

P.S....and the liberals who have been stuck in 'ideologue-dom' will scratch their heads, and wonder if he is the Democratic version of Bush.
Why not?..He's working for the same puppet masters....and nobody can do a damn thing about it!



From: GUEST,Guest from Sanity
Date: 22 Feb 13 - 04:32 PM

..Oh, and I forgot..one of the promises included that we would not drill much here..the cover story was given to 'environmental issues'..but that was NEVER the truth..but it was 'given' to the 'liberal left environmentalists..so they could 'claim a 'victory and ally' in Carter and his administration.
So now the 'so-called' left gets 'new concessions'...The environmental issue as raised by Bobert, and many others, will be a 'talking point argument' used, but that would only be used to maintain the illusion that it was ever a 'concern'. Just for public consumption.
Meanwhile, the 'right' blames the 'left' and so on and so forth..back and forth...and the banks laugh all their way through the capital!

Here's my 'prior post'..Bobert, you may(?) like this!


999: "If Canada and the Chinese are so interested in having a pipe line why not run it westward thru Canada which doesn't have major population centers dependent on clean water???"

Linking up to the existing lines, down the Great Plains would be easier, cheaper, and more safe that going west over the Rockies. there is a mutual benefit for all parties concerned to save the costs.and time.

Just like:

As I posted before, Henry Kissinger, in 1979, under the Carter Administration made a trade agreement with Saudi Arabia, that if they would buy or Treasury bonds, we would buy their oil. Saudi Arabia, happens to be one of our nation's largest debt holders (2nd or 3rd, I think). I am believing that much of the Mid-East war problems, are being allowed, and/or 'sponsored', to bring the region into an untenable, unreliable source of our oil..THEREFORE...next logical choice..drill here, and blow off the debt owed to the 'soon to be Defunct' Saudi Regime, to whom the promises were made. I think Jordan will see problems first, though. ...and who wins?..The oil corporations and the banks, to whom the money is owed. Where does the oil go?..To China, the other big holder of debt...along with, believe this or not, Mexico.

Now this is what I posted about two years ago..and every day that goes by, I see it taking shape....

...and Bobert, if this is true...it really IS both parties..owned by the folks, that you've been NOT blaming....for corrupting both parties.

GfS

P.S. Mudcat Forum, by the way, has been doing some of the hottest exchanges and stuff, on the web..in regards to this and a couple other subjects...wouldn't be surprised if it didn't get even more notoriety.

'Viva El Mudcat!'

Obama vetoed the Keystone pipeline......the timing wasn't quite right..just be patient, and watch......

Oh!...and one more thing.....remember the criticism of Obama, 'not having a strategy', (reportedly), on the dealings with Iran's nuclear program?...Well as long a ISIS is a growing menace in the region, Iran is Sunni, and not too fond of the Shia based ISIS....I could well imagine that DOES put pressure on Iran to 'negotiate'.....while we stall at doing anything to slow ISIS down.....in which case, that would be pretty slick and shrewd..I imagine that that is in the mix....and big oil and the banksters....they're the one doing the 'strategies'...
quite a gamble....
The politicians involved are just 'actors', on salary from the aforementioned.....

Gosh, and Hilary is being found out about accepting money, for the 'Clinton Foundation' from Mid-Eastern countries NOT friendly to the U.S., plus big money from Exxon, and GE...(You might remember that I've 'discussed' Jeff Immelt before....another bankrolling crony supporter of political theater!!

Guardian, last September,

Islamic State fighters parade through Raqqa in Syria. The militant on the left holds an American-made M16 assault rifle. Photograph: Reuters

The jihadi group surging through Iraq and Syria is using large captured US-made weapons and has access to anti-tank rockets supplied by Saudi Arabia to a moderate rebel group, according to a report published on Monday.

The study by the London-based Conflict Armament Research consultancy found that Islamic State (Isis) militants had access to large numbers of US weapons, which they were shifting to key battlefields.

The report drew no conclusions about how the weapons were sourced. However, the capitulation of the Iraqi army in northern Iraq on 10 June gave the jihadis access to military arsenals in the north of the country, which were full of US-supplied assault rifles and ammunition, as well as heavy weapons.

Keith, It depends whether you are speaking of the regimes or the populace.......

Both Sunni and Shia Muslims share the most fundamental Islamic beliefs and articles of faith. The differences between these two main sub-groups within Islam initially stemmed not from spiritual differences, but political ones. Over the centuries, however, these political differences have spawned a number of varying practices and positions which have come to carry a spiritual significance.

The division between Shia and Sunni dates back to the death of the Prophet Muhammad, and the question of who was to take over the leadership of the Muslim nation. Sunni Muslims agree with the position taken by many of the Prophet's companions, that the new leader should be elected from among those capable of the job. This is what was done, and the Prophet Muhammad's close friend and advisor, Abu Bakr, became the first Caliph of the Islamic nation. The word "Sunni" in Arabic comes from a word meaning "one who follows the traditions of the Prophet."

On the other hand, some Muslims share the belief that leadership should have stayed within the Prophet's own family, among those specifically appointed by him, or among Imams appointed by God Himself.

The Shia Muslims believe that following the Prophet Muhammad's death, leadership should have passed directly to his cousin/son-in-law, Ali bin Abu Talib. Throughout history, Shia Muslims have not recognized the authority of elected Muslim leaders, choosing instead to follow a line of Imams which they believe have been appointed by the Prophet Muhammad or God Himself. The word "Shia" in Arabic means a group or supportive party of people. The commonly-known term is shortened from the historical "Shia-t-Ali," or "the Party of Ali." They are also known as followers of "Ahl-al-Bayt" or "People of the Household" (of the Prophet).

Sunni Muslims make up the majority (85%) of Muslims all over the world. Significant populations of Shia Muslims can be found in Iran and Iraq, and large minority communities in Yemen, Bahrain, Syria, and Lebanon.

.....sorta like 'Democrats' saying they are for Democracy...but use dictatorial methods to accomplish their goals, and end up FORCING a minority rule to strip away our freedoms, for the sake of the banksters and mega-corporations, oil, big pharma, and Wall Street....just like the 'Republicans' do...and to accomplish it they PRETEND to be catering to the 'ideologies' who are dumb enough to subscribe to their policies....which is just a ruse!!!

............Sorta like:

President Obama was very unwilling to become involved in regime change in Libya......I think this was very wise and courageous of him, given the pressure he was under from the "hawks".

Mrs Clinton put pressure on him, to further her own interests, with the next election in mind.
President Obama was forced, very much against his will to sign off on military action against the Libyan regime, with the consequences which have ensued.
Libya, was as bad a crime as Iraq, but perpetrated by a Democrat president.....however unwillingly.

Please remember this and other self promotion by Mrs Clinton, when considering whom to vote for in the next election.

Foreign policy is above the level of Democrat vs Republican. Whoever controls foreign policy also controls the highest levels of both parties, and no one can be nominated for president by either party who doesn't support the imperial agenda. If Gore had won the election in 2000, the invasion of Iraq would have happened just the same, except that Democrats would have defended it as a humanitarian intervention and Republicans would attacked it as a waste of tax dollars on a war that didn't serve our strategic interests or defend our freedom. Gore might have been squeamish about it, but they had super-hawk Lieberman in place to fill in for him if he lost his nerve, just as they now have super-hawk Biden in place to remind Obama that he's expendable, and they made McCain, the third member of the Senate's super-hawk triumvirate, the Republican nominee just in case Obama lost. Clinton is a poltical workhorse who will do whatever the imperial collective wants, but the Republicans will nominate someone equally dutiful.

As far as Libya, it's interesting to note that Gaddafi and Saddam Hussein were both selling oil for a currency other than dollars, and in both cases that changed as soon as they were deposed. And now Russia's hopped on the non-dollar bandwagon.

"I find it impossible to believe that the West did not see the destabilisation which would ensue from their 'liberal interventions.'
Are we really that stupid?
I don't think so, and have become convinced that the destabilisation has been contrived."


As Chomsky points out (beginning at 22:00 in this video for example), the word "stability" has a different meaning in foreign policy dialect (FPD) than it has in standard English. It means "maintenance and expansion of US influence." So sometimes a nation or region has to be de-stabilized in order to promote stability.
At 25:50 in that video he mentions a Foreign Affairs article in which the editor got confused and used both the standard English and the FPD meanings of the word in the same sentence, saying "we had to de-stabilize Chili in order to bring about stability."
He then goes on to explain what "the international community" means in FPD.
At 16:00 he mentions a 1958 National Security Council memo that says US policy is and should be to block democracy in the Middle East. And then he mentions a 2001 Pentagon study which confirmed that and said that's why they hate us.

And I agree that "we" are not stupid, if you're using the FPD meaning of that term, which is "the people who control US foreign policy." If you mean "we" in the standard English sense, i.e. you and me and everyone we know and 99% of the population of western countries, then I disagree.
Whenever policy has a horrifying result, the convention is to accuse the policy-makers of stupidity and of having made a mistake. I think of that as the Keystone Kops theory of foreign policy. When a group has been steadily increasing their sphere of influence for many years in spite of constantly making gross mistakes, at some point you have to question whether they can be called mistakes.

Going back to your original post, Skarpi, and also after viewing another link you posted on Facebook, all I can say is you are going to believe what you choose to believe. You have made it pretty evident over the years that your belief system tends toward the paranoid regarding mal-intent on the part of the USA in it's actions in the world. I doubt anything anyone posts here regarding their own thoughts are likely to shake your perspective and you will listen to and value only those opinions and perspectives that tend to confirm your own paradigm.

I understand the USA is officially and covertly capable of financing much horror in the world, just as is every other country. But these two links (this one and the one on facebook to Mick's thread) are absurd and no rational person would understand them as anything other than either propaganda preaching to a paranoid choir or simple conspiracy theorist party time.

I didn't respond to your facebook link because it was off-topic on the facebook thread, but will say here that even as propaganda goes, it was pretty poor, and in fact never asserted the government of the USA has or is financing ISIS. It asserted funds were being funneled through the US.   It is abundantly and frighteningly clear that ISIS has it's supporters who live in the USA, some of whom are US citizens. No doubt some of those supporters are successful in raising funds and finding means to send those funds to ISIS. There is no evidence, and no reason at all to believe either our government or our banking institutions are supporting or financing ISIS, deliberately and either overtly or covertly.

I understand that me saying so will at best have no impact on your view, and at worst, within your paradigm, direct you to feel hostile toward me personally. I regret the latter if that occurs. I am commenting on my views of your positions regarding politics and not about you as an individual. While I doubt you recall me from your visit to the Getaway a number of years ago, I remember you well and your warmth and wonderful music.

I wish you all the best.

Janie

GUEST,Cynical - Date: 09 Mar 15 - 09:07 AM posted the following:

"If Gore had won the election in 2000, the invasion of Iraq would have happened just the same, except that Democrats would have defended it as a humanitarian intervention and Republicans would attacked it as a waste of tax dollars on a war that didn't serve our strategic interests or defend our freedom."

To which Akenaton, on 09 Mar 15 - 09:28 AM, posted the comment:

"Cynical, but true all the same.

Causing Steve Shaw to respond as follows on 09 Mar 15 - 10:09 AM:

"It may be your opinion that this had been possible, but it is completely ludicrous to say that it is "true." It's hindsight, it didn't happen and there is no way of knowing now whether it would or wouldn't have."

Actually what GUEST,Cynical stated was perfectly true. US commitment to military action in Afghanistan was prompted by a direct attack on mainland USA by an international terrorist organisation based in Afghanistan, protected and shielded by the de facto (but unrecognised) Government of Afghanistan at the time.

The success of the September 11th attack and the ease with which it had been carried out caused a complete reappraisal of "The Threat" to the USA. This evaluation was ordered by the President of the Day and would have been ordered by the President of the Day irrespective of who that was - Bush or Gore - and that evaluation would have been made by the same people (Most of whom had worked for and advised Bill Clinton).

All 19 of the USA's intelligence and security agencies in parallel with the Joint House Security Committee made their independent evaluations and both came up with the same threat scenario:

An asymmetric attack undertaken by an international terrorist organisation similar to the attacks of 9/11 on US mainland centres of population involving weapons of mass destruction supplied by a rogue state hostile to the USA.

It would not have mattered one jot whether Al Gore or George W. Bush had been President that evaluation in light of the events of 9/11 would have remained the same.

Having identified the threat both parties then proceeded to identify possible candidates for the role of "rogue state" - top of both lists was Iraq - that too is another fact that would have remained the same irrespective of who had been President. The other thing that would not have changed would have been the advice given to the President - i.e. address the issue with some urgency and do something about it - In the circumstances no President would ignore that advice.

Now here we may have a slight divergence in what might have happened next:

1: GWB went to the UN and asked them to enforce UNSCR 687 and get it verified that Iraq no longer possessed any WMD or WMD materials, had no WMD R&D programmes running and had no weapons delivery systems with ranges greater than 150km. The UN was told do this, or the USA will act unilaterally to get that verification even if that involved invading Iraq and removing Saddam Hussein from power. GWB then went to get authorisation for action against Iraq if that proved to be necessary from Congress.

2: Had Al Gore been President he might have followed his predecessor's lead and responded as President Clinton had in 1996 and again in 1998 - without going Congress or the UN he would have just started firing missiles into Iraq.

But rest assured Mr. Shaw irrespective of who had won the 2000 US Presidential election, after the attacks of 9/11 had highlighted how vulnerable the USA was to such an attack, Iraq, considering its failure to comply in full with the terms and conditions it agreed to at Safwan in March 1991 was going to be attacked.

And there has been no repeat of a 9/11 scale attack since.
Just loners with home made bombs.

That may or may not be true Teribus.....I think perhaps Iraq was the WRONG target, but surely the point, which you studiously avoid, is the de-stabilised state of all the countries where "liberal intervention" has taken place and the danger they NOW pose to our security.......The uninhibited rise of Islamic Fundamentalism, Jihadists, availability of funding and arms etc?

I'm sorry, but I find it impossible to discuss anything sensibly with people who wilfully misread and misrepresent.

One thing I will say is that it is impossible to say whether 9-11 would still have happened had Bush lost the election (which he did anyway of course). So the conversation is all a bit silly really. The only "true" aspect of the whole thing is that Guest Cynical expressed an opinion.
