AS previously asserted (Oct. 2013) while assessing the illegal war into Libya – with Benghazigate as its outgrowth – it was specifically noted that the main objective was a weapons-running operation F/B/O Syrian Sunni jihadists and the empowerment of the Muslim Brotherhood Mafia. Concomitantly, the Brotherhood is the parent of al-Qaeda and ISIS is its offshoot.
MOREOVER, as the region started to melt down after Obama Inc’s. adventure into Libya, requisite players realized that Iraq’s forces were in no position to stand up to ISIS without multiplying its force power. Therefore, what else did they expect the knock-on effects of said quasi-intervention in Iraq would be, other than a complete mowing down by ISIS? Huh and duh.
Today, this plan looks like a pipe dream. ISIS has caused a Middle East earthquake after another by capturing Ramadi in Iraq and Palmyra in Syria in a matter of days. Their alarmed neighbors in Jerusalem, Amman and Riyadh have been forced to conclude that their borders are in danger – not just from Iran, but also from ISIS, and they will have to confront these perils on their own.
DOES “benign neglect” resonate?? And isn’t it reasonable to conclude that HUSSEIN Obama’s two-pronged plan (on the one hand, to prop up the Brotherhood via ISIS as the Sunni “strong horse”, on the other, to empower genocidal Iran via their quest to nuclear break out status) is playing out as intended?
WITH that being said, the stage was set to overturn the order of the Mid East, via ISIS and Iran as the region’s Islamist powerhouses. In this regard, Libya had to explode and lay the groundwork for ISIS’s power base. Full circle.
THUS, how surprising is it that ISIS is turning Libya into its African hub? A + B…
The leaders of Isis have sent money and a growing number of fighters and military trainers to Libya from Syria to boost the Islamic State’s presence in Libyan territory and widen its influence, a US military source has told the Wall Street Journal.
According to the source, Isis now has an operational presence in Libya and aims to turn the country into its hub in Africa.
Libya is now part of the map of terror of Isis, the source was quoted as saying by the Wsj, adding that the presence in the country gives jihadists a new base to plan attacks in North Africa and, through the Mediterranean Sea, in Europe. Some US officials and experts, added the Wsj, also see signs they believe prove the willingness of the group’s leaders to boost relations with Islamic militant groups in the Egyptian Sinai peninsula, sending limited funding, as well as in other countries, but the highest concern is represented by growing relations with Libyan groups. The paper also reported that the US military see few valid options to stem the growth of Isis in the North African country, where the power void has favored the proliferation of militant groups.(ANSAmed).
AND what about their open intent to purchase WMD’s from Pakistan via their mega bulging war chests? Take them at their word. Furthermore, since the Jihadi-in-Chief takes no issue with Iran’s mullahs possessing WMD’s (this is no longer up for debate), why would rational folks believe that he would put the might of the U.S. behind stopping ISIS from doing the same?
INHERENTLY, HUSSEIN Obama is “sitting on his hands” re ISIS’s onslaught and it is not for nothing!
IT is increasingly clear that the Islamist-in-Chief is straddling both Sunni jihadis and Shia terrorists. However, any given calculation revolves around which side requires pumping up, and which one needs hands off – for the time being. To that end, reigniting the centuries-long war between both factions – for regional and global hegemony – ultimately accrues to the benefit of the Muslim ummah, supra-national.
IN other words, the end goal is to unleash Islamism throughout the world via the eventual resurrection of the Caliphate. Resultant, speeding up their hegemonic war is mandatory. In effect, whereas empowering ISIS ends up benefiting the Brotherhood (this is why Erdogan – Caliphate-in-Waiting – Brotherhood-steeped President of Turkey is squarely behind ISIS), so too Shia Iran becomes ever more unshackled, whenever they are called in to rescue embattled fellow Shiites. Demonstrably, the twists and turns of the war between Sunni and Shia are on full bloody display.
MORE specifically, HUSSEIN Obama’s concomitant goal is to ensure that nothing gets in the way of negotiations with Iran. Thus, it made sense to downplay the threat from ISIS, as was repeatedly done.
Barely having mentioned the group throughout 2011-13, Obama finally broke his silence in January 2014 to David Remnick of the New Yorker by referring to ISIS as a Bush league joke of a non-threat: “The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant.”
In June, to emphasize the triviality of the so-called “threat,” Obama continued his campaign rhetoric that “American forces will not be returning to combat in Iraq.”
In July, the media barely noticed that National Security Adviser Susan Rice submitted a letter to House Speaker John Boehner asking him to “repeal…the outdated 2002 Authorization for Use of Military Force in Iraq” so as to give “the American people confidence that ground forces will not be sent into combat in Iraq.” Obama repeated that “American combat troops will not be returning to fight in Iraq…because there’s no American military solution to the larger crisis there…continue here…
INTRINSICALLY, this anti-American strategy ensures that ISIS will catapult from strength to strength. Assuredly, they are unimpeded due to a dearth of U.S. hyper-power. Not only that, but they are winning via a treasure trove of American weaponry lifted from the battlefield – with upwards of 52 155mm M198 howitzers back in 2014 – and enumerable more platforms since then!
IS it not treasonous to abandon the epicenter of the west’s struggle to global hegemonic Islamic monsters?
ALAS, the above treacherous calculus – played out to the max – leaves little regional recourse, other than to call in Iran’s direct “assistance” to battle ISIS! Mind you, the fact that Iran is already deeply involved in the battles raging in Syria and Iraq (others as well), has little to do with what comes next.

TO wit, within an already convoluted geo-political landscape – and in tandem with continuous machinations by Obama Inc. into the fiery Mid East, with added thrusts into Africa and beyond – the above is the byproduct of a Machiavellian strategic course.
NOW, if all of the aforementioned appears too fantastical and “conspiratorial”, well, that’s okay. Alas, this investigative journalist’s deeply sourced contacts (some of whom are on speed dial, both in Israel and the U.S.) back up said analysis.
IT is what it is. Hang on tight…
