West killing Islamic ‘terrorists’ it created. Islamic terrorists volunteering to get killed
Posted on May 15th, 2019

Something is not right. While 57 of the 68 foreign terrorist groups banned by US are Islamic and all having some link or the other to each other as well as an underlying link to Western governments & their intelligence. According to the Global Terrorism Index 2018 compiled by the Institute for Economics & Peace the majority of the 169 terrorist groups are Islamic. Of the 68 foreign terrorist organizations banned by US – 57 are Islamic. Ironically or coincidentally, the West declares ‘war on terror’ in every country these Islamic terrorists wage terror in. However, the terrorists are never negated, territory is captured by terrorists eventually the West, civilians end up dead & the West’s soldiers end up fighting the very terrorists its governments & intel agencies have created & West stays grounded claiming it is yet to finish off the ‘terrorists’. Is there something bigger than we are not been told?

None of the Islamic terrorist groups come from countries that manufacture arms. So where do they buy arms – legally or illegally or who gives them arms covertly?

Terrorism today is undoubtedly a business. It is not just an ordinary business it is a very lucrative business. If there was no terror, arms manufacturers will not be making the profits it does. Its lucrative to many other players too including the human rights, NGO circles.

Arms manufacturers can sell to both parties (govts & terrorists both purchase arms to attack & defend, then there is the counter terrorism equipment which is also a lucrative business – cameras, scanners, all sort of sophisticated equipment) Quite a lot of money laundering activities are also taking place plugged to this is the illegal narcotic business.

Cost of terrorism in 2017 was said to be $52billion (Institute for Economics & Peace)

Terrorism is part of foreign policy – Islamic terrorists in Africa / US troops in Africa

American foreign policy makers claim to oppose Muslim extremism, but they foment it as a weapon of foreign policy. Is this the reason why wherever countries wish to politically pivot or politically pressurize governments or cause destability, suddenly some form of rebel group emerges with a ‘cause’  or ‘terror’ that almost always demands ‘territory’ – geopolitical expansionism that the countries that wish to pivot are eyeing.

Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) was originally Al Qaeda in Iraq which rebranded when US pivoted from Iraq to Syria. Syria is today a theatre for 3 wars – Syrian govt & western government backed-rebels, Iran & Saudi Arabia & US vs Russia.

US uses ISIS not merely as an instrument of terror to topple the Syrian government; it is also used to put pressure on Iran.

Just to put things in proper perspective. Last time Iran invaded another nation was in 1738 but the US has been engaged in over 53 illegal military invasions since 1776.

US uses ISIS in 3 ways – to attack West’s enemies in Middle East, to justify US military interventions abroad & create fear psychosis at home of a manufactured threat to its soil to require unprecedented domestic surveillance & need for US taxpayers to fund US military interventions overseas.

US interventions are very lucrative opportunities for US companies. More than 70 American companies and individuals have won up to $27 billion in contracts for work in postwar Iraq and Afghanistan. The West bomb countries and awards its companies contracts to rebuild the countries & who foots the bill?

The US is not at war with any country in Africa but there are 7500 US military personnel, 1000 contractors deployed in Africa an increase of 1500 from 2017. US has 100 missions in 20 African countries conducting 3500 military exercise operations (Strategic Cultural Foundation)

There are 200,000 US troops stationed in 177 countries!

In the African continent alone US is in 53 countries – that virtually means US is in every country in the African continent! In the tiny Horn of Africa nation of Djibouti – US has 4000 troops, a critical strategic base because of its port and its proximity to the Middle East. This camp controls drone attacks to target ‘insurgents’ in Yemen, Nigeria, and Somalia.

There are at least 33 Islamic terrorist groups operating in African continent.

Ethiopia an ally of the US, a majority-Christian nation, invaded Somalia in December 2006. It was a ‘made in Washington’ invasion. It resulted in 20,000 deaths and left up to 2 million Somalis homeless.

U.S. conducted 45 air strikes in Somalia against al Shabab and Islamic State targets in 2018. Just to kill one Somali warlord – Moh Farrah Aidid the US Special Forces ended up killing more than 1000 Somalis.

Who are these terrorists?

CIA gave birth to Al Qaeda & Osama bin Laden & Saudi funded it in 1980s. When Osama was no longer needed he was removed and Al Qaeda was rebranded under several names. Al Qaeda is said to operate in 17 countries & having 30,000 fighters

Boku Haram started operations in Nigeria in 2002 & operates in Chad, Cameroon & Niger too. It is famous for hostage taking & extensive use of children & women as suicide bombers copying LTTE.

Al Shabaab began in 2006 and strikes terror in Somalia, Ethiopia, Kenya & Uganda

Daesh, ISIS, ISIL, Islamic State are the other oft quoted names.

Creating the terrorists is one thing but how in control of these monsters are the countries that created them?

Fulani in Nigeria killed 321 people and carried out 72 attacks in 2017.

Al Nusra previously known as Hayat al-Tahrir al-Sham were responsible for 176 deaths in 2017.

In Pakistan, Lahkar-e-Jhangvi & the Khorasan Chapter of the Islamic State is active across the border in Afghanistan.

In Jammu Kashmir at least 5 different groups operate – Lashkar-e-Taliba, Jaish-e-Mohammad, Hizbul Mujahideen who were responsible for 102 deaths.

Yemen crisis surrounds Houthi rebels Al Qaeda in Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and Adan-Abyan Province of Islamic State while Abu Sayyaf, Maute Group operate in Philippines.

According to Watson Institute 228,942 Muslims have died engaged with US-NATO forces in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan from 2001 to 2018 – how many of them are civilians or West-trained militants, we will never know.

But the figure 114,471 Opposition fighters is a good indication of the Islamic terrorists that the West created & eventually killed.

Islamic terrorists & arms

All these Islamic groups have sophisticated arms – where are they getting them from. Are they gifted from arms manufacturing countries? Do they buy them from arms manufacturing countries (legally or illegally) if so how are they raising funds? Since 99% terrorists are Islamic and no Islamic country manufactures arms how are they sourcing these arms?

US is the world’s largest arms exporter – 36% of worlds arms exports is by US of which 28% goes to Saudi Arabia & UAE. Saudi is America’s largest customer. The 2016 and 2017 shipments from the United States include: 142 helicopters, eight anti-submarine aircraft, 153 tanks, and over 20,000 guided missiles. These weapons provide air support for the war in Yemen (SIPRI). More than 17,000 Yemeni civilians have died since Saudi began bombing Yemen with arms bought from US. (why are Muslims buying arms to kill fellow Muslims?)

US arms exports are 75% higher than Russia’s.

Islamic terrorists & funding

According to a February 2018 CNN investigation money given by UN ended up with Al-Shabaab. Al-Shabaab also follows the LTTE model of taxing people using the Islamic ‘zaqat’ (tax)

ISIL is the world’s wealthiest terrorist group with an annual revenue of US$2billion in 2015 (Global Terrorism Index) half of its funds were sourced from oil smuggling generating revenues of US$1.3 million per day.

According to UN data out of the 43 Foreign Terror Organizations 60% are linked to drug trafficking business. Trajan Evans of the University of Utah calls the link with Terror groups & drug trafficking a ‘marriage of convenience’. Terrorists receive cash, drug traffickers benefit from military skills, weapons supply & access to other clandestine organizations. Some terrorists are drug traffickers themselves like LTTE and most Islamic terror groups. https://www.law.utah.edu/the-link-between-terrorism-and-drug-trafficking/

Who are arming & training the terrorists?

Former British Foreign Secretary, Robin Cook, told the House of Commons that Al Qaeda was unquestionably a product of Western intelligence agencies.

Pentagon spent $500 million training Syrian rebels (Timber Sycamore was a classified weapons supply and training program run by the United President Barack Obama secretly authorized the CIA to begin arming Syria’s embattled rebels in 2013)

According to General Valery Gerasimov, Chief of General Staff of the Armed Forces of Russia, US has trained over 1000 ISIS in Syria.

US openly supported Sarekat Islam against Sukarno in Indonesia

US supported the Jamaat-e-Islami terror group against Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto in Pakistan

American policy in Iraq was to flog sectarian divisions and create a fertile breeding ground for Sunni discontent & lure radicalized Sunni’s against Shiiates.

ISIS thugs, are openly brandishing American-made M16 Assault rifles.

So the question is why are Muslims willing cannon-fodder for West’s geopolitical expansionisms?

The presence of American forces in the Middle East, for example, has motivated many to join terrorist groups in order to fight the American invasion.” Little do these Muslims realize that the organizations they join are very much in Western control.

West has mastered the art of using political Islam not only to recruit volunteer terrorists but inspire historical Islamic expansionist goals to transfer into West’s neocolonial expansionist goals. So political Islam via hired, trained terrorists are made to believe they are expanding the territory of Islam, safeguarding Islam while West enters with their military equipment, drones etc & says ‘thank you for giving us this territory’ and permanently kills the men they trained. 

According to CFR/UN/CTC as of August 2018, over 45,000 Al Qaeda affiliate fighters have died. These are the very men created, armed & financed by West for their various geopolitical pivots and foreign policy agendas.

This conflicts with the figure 114,471 ‘Opposition fighters’ killed in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan from 2001 to October 2018.

So exactly how many Islamic terrorists have been killed since the war on terror was launched in 2001? Obviously no one seems to even be able to give an estimate. The irony is that the West is happily recruiting Muslims and the Muslims are killing fellow Muslims as well as non-Muslims and West is thereafter killing these Muslims while incurring losses themselves. 4523 US troops have been killed since 2003 by the very men their governments birthed.

So our questions are:

  • Who controls the arms trade?
  • Who buys arms
  • Where are the conflicts round the world & why?
  • Who are these terrorists & how are they linked to Western Govts
  • How are they getting trained?
  • How many civilians have terrorists killed
  • How many terrorists have died
  • What is the net worth of these terrorists & where do the income they generate eventually go to & who really controls them?

CARTOONS ARE BEST TO CAPTURE PEOPLE’S SENTIMENTS

Watching the shifting U.S. resposes to criticism of the bombing of the Doctors Without Borders hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan makes one marvel at the gall and efficacy of changing narratives to duck responsibility. What if others used the same techniques?
