The way American policy is going, ISIS staying alive and powerful would be less disastorous than to deal with what is on the horizon: Turkey controlling Syria and Iran controlling Iraq and the Hormuz.
We read the Middle East and Obama’s Middle East policies like we read the clock. After the FSA was supported by the U.S. and later waned and was replaced with Sunni extremist groups (as predicted), we examined the players and we said that its not worth dying for these Muslim bastards. The first bastard, Turkey, which simply wants to oust Assad and the other bastards, Turkey’s puppets or useful idiots: ISIS, Al-Nusra and Ahrar Al-Sham (Islamic Front). These all being against Assad and of course, in the Middle East the enemy of Ankara’s enemy is a friend of Ankara which now has its puppets controlling the northern parts of Syria. What becomes obvious is that, a radical Islamist alliance in Syria is forming, while the U.S. bombs ISIS in Syria, risking her sons in order to pave the way to usher in Caliphate minded insurgency against Assad.
This has become obvious after the U.S. supposed allies in the war on ISIS are now whipping up some crafty ideas to put to good use of the situation at hand. Turkey and Saudi Arabia, two regional superpowers, with a long history of rivalry, are in high-level talks these last two months with the goal of forming a military alliance to oust Syrian President Bashar Assad.
Even the naive who first believed what the White House dishes out that we must ‘oust Bashar’ in Syria can now see the futility of such thought. Now Qatar in partnership with Turkey promised to provide ground troops, supported by Saudi Arabian airstrikes, to assist what they tell Americans are “moderate Syrian opposition fighters” against Assad’s regime when fact is, there are no ‘moderates’.
The use of the word ‘moderate’ is a myth which is easily proven since every movement is agenda driven and is planned to establish the fullness of a specific agenda, be it the liberal, conservative, terrorist, communist … Can anyone show us any movement that is ‘moderate’ besides the ones that acquiesces to their enemy? The term ‘moderate’ in reality simply means ‘treasonous to their cause’ and is why Muslims defected U.S. supported Al-Hazm and FSA.
President Barack Obama was made aware of the talks in February by the emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad al Thani. The White House administration has generally encouraged Persian Gulf countries to “step up and do more” on their own to promote regional security.
Such a message simply tells the regional superpowers (Turkey and Saudi Arabia), that the United States is stepping aside. And of course, Turkey and Saudi Arabia were glad to comply and in turn have a different plan, that is to support Caliphate minded fighters who are only slightly different from ISIS in that ousting Bashar Al-Assad is the priority while figuring out how they establish the Grand Caliphate plan can be discussed later.
While the United States continues its daily airstrikes against ISIS, Turkey works with ‘vetted members’ of the Syrian opposition. By ‘vetted’ this would mean they are not members of ISIS and that they simply want to oust Bashar Al-Assad first then complete the metamorphosis of a Syrian Muslim Brotherhood state.
Turkey and Saudi Arabia made no secret that their intervention in Syria would go forward whether or not the U.S. offered support, said one source involved in the talks.
But nothing is free. Saudi Arabia’s eagerness for aid from Turkey’s military, since it is one of the most dominant in the region, and its eagerness to remove the ISIS threat as well as put a nail in the coffin for Shiite run Syria will allow Turkey to control Syria and surpass in its regional influence more than Saudi Arabia and even spreading its tentacles in the entire Arab island through Qatar which Turkey made a deal with Qatar to allow Turkish troops on its soil.
In the qualitative development with Qatar, Turkey announced that the Committee ratified a number of draft laws, including the “military cooperation agreement” between Turkey and Qatar which includes military training, deployment of joint forces and joint military exercises which we will witness the signing of similar agreements with other Gulf states. Turkey is again pushing the various competing centers of Arab authority to coalesce into a more capable military union, nearly a century after Sharif Hussein ibn Ali’s initial revolt against the Ottomans which allowed the United Kingdom and France through Sykes Picot to redraw the boundaries of Al-Mashriq Al-Arabi — the Arab lands to the east of Egypt — and create the fractious states we see today. By undoing this, the dream of putting back the Ottoman Humpty Dumpty looks closer than ever.
And while Turkey complains about the U.S. for its refusal to engage Bashar of Syria, they see the U.S as a giant that can still be put to good use, the U.S. aid to at least weaken ISIS and pave the way for an entry by a regional superpower like Turkey, just as it was in Iraq, the U.S. simply offered her sons to die to pave the way to make an Iranian proxy out of Iraq.
Why else would Turkey’s leadership continually criticize the U.S.-led coalition striking ISIS targets in Iraq/Syria for its refusal to also go after the Syrian regime? The goal is therefore the removal of the secular state in Syria, diminish the effects of Sykes Picot, and to establish a non-secularist Caliphate of a different kind than ISIS, one that is currently pegging the U.S. to choose between daily beheadings by ISIS’s Caliphate or an Ottoman Caliphate. The later still denies their genocide of the Armenians. The question is, would a system that denies such a holocaust, be immune from repeating it, and not carry out another systematic cleansing of all Christians by the future grand Caliphate run from Turkey?
In 2012 we stated:
“Iraq will weaken as a result of America’s exit to simply be devoured by Iran. By this, Turkey will control the Suez Canal and the Bosporus Strait, while Iran controls the Strait of Hormuz. This will undermine the U.S. naval hegemony in the region, which will eventually use its military armada alongside other allied European nations including Greece, Spain, and Italy in a showdown with Turkey.”
While America’s exit came to pass and Iran controls Iraq through its Shiite alliance with it, regarding the Hormuz, the papers tell us today that “The Strait of Hormuz, the slender waterway that connects the Persian Gulf to the rest of the world and is a critical conduit in the global oil supply chain, has again become a point of contention for Iran and the United States — just as they are trying to reach a nuclear accord. What we are seeing is the beginning challenge to U.S. hegemony in the region.” The very political system and the media that encouraged and belabored the word “deal” is now the very institutions that complain about it.
In 2013 we wrote:
Today, the contest between Iran (the bear) and Turkey (the Leopard) will see Turkey emerge victorious. As a result, Iraq will continue to weaken after being gobbled up by Iran following America’s exit.
By this, Turkey will control the Suez and the Bosporus while Iran controls the Hormuz. This will undermine the U.S. naval hegemony in the region, which eventually will use its military armada alongside other allied European nations to fight in the Middle East.
With the end of Arab Nationalism, we have a void to be filled with the Turkish Model; that model is ‘moderate Islam’. The fall of Arab Nationalism will cause the Arab world to be looking for a protector and a guard – “be a guard unto them”. (Ezekiel 38:7)
While Saudi Arabia wishes for Turkey to guard its interest, we can also see that U.S. hegemony in the seas is being challenged by Iran even before they get their nuke. What will it be like after they get it can easily be read as one reads the entire Middle East including American stupidity like a clock.
ISIS is killing Iranian allied Shiites. Have the Shiites of Iran then kill ISIS while ISIS tries to kills both Al-Saud and Iran. In the Middle East clay will always crush clay while in the Middle West, iron must sharpen iron.
In the meanwhile, I ask anyone to show me, where was the wisdom of using our air force to fight in Syria and Iraq? Better yet, show me the wisdom of serving in the Middle East during the last two decades?
It would be wise for folks to postpone sending their sons and daughters to serve and die, so that bastard politicians offer them on the altar of compromise, so that whatever American blood liberates, is handed over to Muslims who want to create a sultanate for Turkey and a Persian Empire for Iran. The saddest part is, reviving such beasts is all paid for with the blood of saints. Americans who still love to fight must wait until a righteous shepherd is elected to rid us first from this inner tyranny, before we dream of fighting the other emerging tyranny.
So was all this blood shed in vain?
Answering this gets rather complicated.
The answer is No. Showing the Muslims how to be free or saving Kuwaiti girls from Iraqi rape is nobel, although hardly even remembered or even appreciated, there are more nobel causes to fight and die for, such as getting the Christians in the region out of harms way. Christ in His judgment sets sheep from goats based on what folks do for His flock and not what they do serving the devil’s goats, with the exception of course, the intent was to convert goats into sheep.
But this is why Americans fight, to show the goat how to become sheep, and is why they give their lives and is why their blood is not shed in vain. I just pray for a godly leadership.
