Pompeo to Host Ministerial Meeting of Pro-ISIS Coalition
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org - Home - Stephen Lendman)
All wars are based on and sustained by disinformation, Big Lies, and mass deception — supported by press agent media.
Without it, phony pretexts for wars wouldn't exist, making them unlikely to be waged. Media supported propaganda is essential, operating as a collective Pentagon mouthpiece.
Made in the USA ISIS is supported and controlled by dark forces in Washington — operating as US proxy fighters in war theaters where they're deployed, the same true for likeminded jihadist groups.
On Monday, Pompeo's spokesperson said he'll host a November 14 ministerial meeting of coalition partners on ISIS in Washington — pretending they'll "review next steps in the joint campaign to achieve the enduring defeat of" the terrorist group the US and its imperial partners support.
Ministers will discuss what's ahead in the US war OF terror, not on it, a campaign of endless wars of aggression, smashing nations, destabilizing them, denying security and well-being to their long-suffering people.
"The US is determined to" continue using ISIS and other jihadists to further its "global ambitions."
Separately on Sunday, Pompeo repeated Trump's dubious claim about eliminating Baghdadi, no evidence proving it — along with maintaining the myth about US involvement in combatting the scourge of ISIS it actively supports.
Pompeo: The Trump regime is "committed to applying relentless pressure on terrorists around the world (sic)," adding:
"Working with the global coalition, we destroyed ISIS' so-called caliphate earlier this year (sic). Baghdadi's demise is further evidence (sic) — available for all to see (sic) — that the United States will not stop in the pursuit of bringing evil to justice and delivering on our promise to do everything in our power to keep America safe and to bring this scourge to its knees (sic)."
Cold, hard indisputable reality is polar opposite Pompeo's Big Lies and deception.
So-called US coalitions of the willing are all about furthering US imperial aims, endless wars of aggression its favored strategy, smashing nations to control them, massacring millions to achieve its aims.
Trump wants to make a deal with ExxonMobil or another Big Oil giant to plunder Syrian oil, falsely calling the country's resources a US national security priority, wanting Damascus denied control over what rightly belongs to the Syrian nation and people.
Trump believes predation is OK as long as US interests are served, ignoring the rule of law.
Syria's oil and other resources belong to the state, not to an illegal foreign occupier.
Looting them is a war crime, Trump criminally complicit as president and commander-in-chief in charge of all US wars of aggression.
Supported by both right wings of the US war party, they rage endlessly in multiple theaters with no plans for ending them — peace and stability considered threats to US national security.
A Final Comment
Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi debunked the notion of US war on ISIS, saying:
Baghdadi and others like him were trained by the Pentagon and CIA.
"ISIL was defeated by the youth from the Resistance Front. Iraqi and Syrian nations, with Iran's logistic support, defeated this terrorist group" — supported, not combatted by the US and its imperial allies, adding:
"Although we defeated ISIL with help from other regional nations, their ideology is still alive, and it is likely that the survivors of this group would be reorganized by the US to carry out further destructive measures in the region."
"It's not that surprising that the US move in (allegedly) killing Baghdadi is receiving so much media hype. Every year close to the US elections, Americans play such cards for domestic consumption."
Trump's dubious claim about killing Baghdadi "is no big deal, since ISIL had been defeated by us and other countries in the region."
"We should wait and see what other plans the region's enemies have in mind for the future."
US policymakers rule out restoration of peace and stability to Syria and elsewhere regionally. Trump's Sunday announcement changed nothing.
