Like many today, I find myself calling on anyone with the authority to do so, to halt the atrocities that are being carried out by the ISIS terrorist organization. Innocent lives are being taken and disposed of without any regard to humanity. Whether they be Christian, Yazidi, Shia Muslim or otherwise..this genocide of the innocent must be stopped. ISIS must be completely eradicated from the face of the earth. There is no plausible alternative and there can be no substitute.
Upon hearing reports of the impending US military air strikes in Iraq a few weeks ago, my first thoughts were ‘..better late than never..’ even though I knew they would be limited in scope and duration. In my heart I could not help but feeling, it was all “just for show.” Simply put, something to give the impression that we were actually doing something to combat the evil in our midst. Then, after reviewing the videos of the US airstrikes, my thoughts were confirmed. It appeared as though one air strike targeted a farm tractor while another took out a guy on a lawn mower.
As the narrative began to shift towards combating ISIS in Syria, again I found myself in support of the initiative. Afterall, Syria is essentially the base of operations for the Islamic State and eliminating the ISIS threat entirely will require engaging them there, as well.
So, why do I suddenly feel as though I need a shower?
The more we researched, the more we learned that the entire war in Syria was a facade. It was a smokescreen for the world’s petrol power-brokers to acquire Syrian land for the Qatari Natural Gas Pipeline. Qatar wanted their natural gas to flow to Europe and this pipeline was necessary to do so and Syria is along the route. Bashar al-Assad declined the initiative for the pipeline and this was the precept for the Syrian War. Afterall, there are Billions of dollars available to Qatar and all that stands in the way is Bashar al-Assad. When we looked closely at those who were supporting the ouster of Assad, we noticed it’s all of the nations that had a stake in the pipeline and the future proceeds. Qatar, Turkey, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Britain, France, the US and others. This is Obama’s War for Oil.
So, as we fast-forward to the present, here we are again. Awaiting the announcement by Barack Hussein Obama as to the future US military plans for Syria. And I cannot help but wonder..are we getting the old ‘..bait and switch?..’ Is this all just Obama’s second shot at Syria and Assad? We fought so hard to prevent his previous attacks because we knew they were unwarranted and unjustified. We knew we were in the right. And those very people that stood against involvement then are standing for it now. And what has changed since then?
And who is out front in this ISIS Crisis? Mr. Ben Rhodes. So, has the fiction writer written a sequel to his prior works and is it about to be released?
Does ISIS need to be eradicated? Absolutely and unequivocally. Although, we must keep our eyes on the Obama administration very closely. And we must never allow ourselves to forget, this is all about ISIS and ISIS alone. We must make sure the Obama administration does not use this situation to redirect attacks against Assad (or) to reinstall financial funding and the supply of weapons to the FSA Rebels or any other terrorist regime.
We must not replace one terrorist regime with that of another.
