Real Priorities – Destroy ISIS Is Number One

Politics / ISIS Islamic State Aug 20, 2014 - 02:38 PM GMT

By: Andrew_McKillop


Silence Speaks Loud
Nothing filters out of Riyadh, Doha, Kuwait, Abu Dhabi or Muscat on the the slowly-growing rollback in Iraq of the Islamic State and its filthy barbarians. The reason is simple. ISIS was funded, armed and supported by the Sunni-minority regimes of the Gulf states when it ran its rampage of atrocities in Syria, with arms-length acceptance of this by the so-called “mature western democracies”.

This was as easy to explain as the fact that Bashr al-Assad's regime is supported by Putin's Russia.

The barbarians of ISIS are now being rolled back.  Rear Admiral John Kirby, the Pentagon press secretary, said Tuesday 19 August that "They are pretty well organized for the terrorist network that they are, but they are not 10 feet tall either, as we've seen," Hit the scum!

Always supporting and encouraging the brutality and barbarity of the Islamic State, the petrodollar-fattened regimes of the Gulf states believed they had a master card for rolling back democracy in their own sclerotic, corrupt and degenerate societies. Playing the card of Sunni Islamic extremism in Syria, they thought, would soon draw Iran into the fight, and enable their “objective ally” Israel to attack Iran with nuclear weapons. The large and sometimes majority Shia communities in the Gulf states could be blackened by their association with Shia-majority Iran. The petrodollar kings and gas princes would deny any chance of democracy at home and be laughing all the way along their trail of upmarket whorehouses in Europe.

The Latest Public Decapitation
For reasons we can only guess, the social networks are falling over each other to air gory video clips on Islamic extremist atrocities – such as a clip of the seven-year-old son of a Sunni Islamic mufti gurgling racist and hysterical one-liners, who holds up two decapitated head in his hands. With a smile of triumph! Just one 9mm bullet in the middle of his head would put this small animal where it belongs.

The killing by decapitation of US journalist James Foley, who I briefly met one time in New York at a 2007 news media event, casts a sombre shadow over the more than 30 reporters—about half of them Westerners—who have disappeared in Syria and are believed to be held by ISIS or other extremist forces. Other Westerners, working for aid groups, have also have gone missing in Syria and over 50 journalists have been killed since Syria's civil war began in 2011, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists.

This Committee's members have made it plain there is a “conspiracy of silence” only due to the oil and gas production and export capacities of the minority Sunni regimes of the Gulf. Under no circumstances must these Exalted Beings be deranged as they sow death and mayhem across the Middle East – but not in their own so-sacred Gulf states! There, they can snap their fingers at their army of cynical, blind and greedy westerners who serve their rotten regimes and satisfy their degenerate follies, for example designing and building gimmick-riddled “Ecological Cities” dedicated to alternate energy “and saving the climate”.

It is unfortunately unlikely these servants and agents of the corrupt and despotic regimes fomenting Sunni Islamic barbarity in Syria and Iraq will find their own precious selves chained to a radiator as long-term hostages or simply decapitated in open air – but we can hope! Only a few have to suffer that fate and the other parasites will cut and run. Knowing this, these cynical profiteers and servants of despotism are as we say “very discreet”, living totally artificial zombie lives

When the Zombie Regimes Fall Apart
The “strategy' of the corrupt Sunni regimes of the Gulf, exemplified by the Bandar bin Sultan affair in KSA, was one-way only. Foment Islamic barbarity in Syria and Iraq, with arms-length support or tolerance by the US and Europe, to protect the Gulf state regimes and isolate Iran. The side dish was to drive tension and disaccord between Russia and the West due to Russia's totally intransigent stance when facing Islamic extremism at home – and in Syria.

Gulf state aid, support, financing and weapons supply to Islamic extremists in Russia is heavily documented and well known. Why these small or tiny-sized Gulf states should imagine they are immune from any retaliation – including military retaliation – can be attributed to their extreme arrogance and extreme stupidity. Until very recently however, they also counted on playing the USA against Iran and Russia in the global fight against Sunni Islamic barbarity, but that is no longer a winning hand. Today, the world's civilized nations have one common enemy – ISIS and its Gulf state backers.

Exactly as for Iraq, the sole interest of the Gulf states for the outside world and any external player is oil and gas. They represent nothing more than that. When the greasy hands of their kings and princes fall off the often-rusty swords of Islamic beheaders and decapitators in Syria and Iraq, and their greasy hands slip from the oil pump, they will return to the camel-herding nothing they came from.
