"ISIS" is obviously an excuse to bomb Syria, as a back door attempt to oust Assad by providing air support for the faltering Free Syrian Army. Russian diplomacy foiled the first neoconservative push to bomb Syria last year.
We're told by our government and media that we've been shown "beheading" videos. That's not true. If you look hard enough online, you can find the RAW "beheading" videos. But in NONE of the three "beheading" videos (Foley, Sotloff, and Haines) does it show a head being cut off. As "Jihad John" ostensibly starts to saw their necks with his knife, the video fades to black. When the video comes back on, it shows a "headless body" with the purported head of the victim resting on the back.
It reminds me of the alleged Saddam Hussein "hanging" video. NOWHERE did it ever show Saddam hanging. It showed him with the noose around his neck, then the trap door opens and he falls through. BUT THEN THE VIDEO AGAIN GOES BLACK! When the video comes back, we see the ostensibly lifeless body of Saddam laying on the floor with the noose around his neck.
Seeing a pattern?
And where's the video of the raid that allegedly killed Bin Laden?
It's amazing that we can be TOLD what we are actually SEEING with our own eyes, and have our own observation be "overridden" by what our government & media tell us.
Edward Bernays would be proud.
The purpose of the fake beheadings is to sway public opinion to support action in Syria — a back door to overthrowing Assad; the first effort being thwarted by clever Russian diplomacy last year.
And don't assume that the President or Congress are behind this. It's much deeper. Powerful interests (whose bidding our politicians do; namely Israel & Saudi Arabia) want Assad removed.
Incidentally, the war in the Middle East is against SHI'A Islam, the House of Saud's mortal enemy. Look whom ISIS is attacking — Shi'a-ruled countries — Syria & Iraq, with Iran being the ultimate prize, eventually; especially since the American public wasn't buying the neocons' lies and push to directly bomb Iran over the last 7 or 8 years. So Syria is a back door to Iran, as "ISIS" is a back door to Syria (Assad).
America doesn't get its oil from Saudi Arabia, but much of the rest of the world does. And where do the Saudis invest their massive oil profits? Not in Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia invests its oil fortune in the U.S. economy. And currently we're more desperate than ever for that investment. THAT's the "relationship" between the U.S. & KSA. As with China, the U.S. desperately needs that massive Saudi investment into our debt-ridden, non-producing (except the Defense industry), faltering economy.
Remember a little over a year ago, the media said the U.S. was going to train the FSA (Free Syrian Army) in Jordan? It's my contention that we armed and trained "ISIS" in the eastern desert of Jordan. And it wouldn't surprise me if it was Blackwater/ Xe/ Academi (whatever they've changed their name to this week) who did the training.
How is ISIS funded? Where do they get their oil? Their arms? How do they manage logistically? Supply lines, etc.?
Of course we're told they stole U.S. weaponry from Iraqi Army bases in northern Iraq, and that they robbed banks in Mosul (lol). How convenient. Now no one will raise an eyebrow when they see "ISIS" in humvees and shooting M-16s, and not question their funding.
If "ISIS" is as we've been told, why didn't we bomb the holy hell out of them as they drove south from Mosul along the highway toward Baghdad in one, long convoy. We've been shown those photos by the media. I'm sure those photos were meant to elicit a feeling of desperation and fear in the American public, but to any thinking, rational, logical person it begged the question: Why aren't we bombing that "ISIS" convoy like we bombed the retreating Iraqi Army in 1991 on the highway from Kuwait back to Iraq?!
Why? For the same reason "Pentagon lawyers" shut down Able Danger after Lt. Col. Shaffer's team identified Mohammed Atta and several other "terrorists" in 2000. For the same reason western intelligence knew of Bin Laden's 10-day stay for medical treatment at the American Hospital in Dubai in July 2001.
And that reason is: Why would the U.S. eliminate the very boogeyman it created? That boogeyman is needed to serve it's psychological purpose as scapegoat.
