- Child Allowed To Stab Syria Soldier As Woman Hammers Head (Federal Jack, July 8, 2014):

SYRIAN-CIVIL-WAR-01

(SyrianGirl)   Dera’a province, these are the actions of the moderate rebels and their wives and children. These are not ISIS, ISIL, JAN, or al-Qaeda. These are the ‘people’ that Obama wants to give $500 million dollars to. They make children stab tied up soldiers, and beat them to death. The young man had no chance to defend himself. He dared to be patriotic to his country.

(CNN) — ISIS militants took control of a facility that Saddam Hussein once used to produce and store chemical weapons in Iraq Thursday.

The facility is “larger than the District of Columbia,” says David Kay, former chief U.S. weapons inspector in Iraq.

But the State Department doubts that the Al Muthanna complex contains any material of “military value.” Continue reading »

- 400 Missiles Stolen in Benghazi… 20,000 Missiles Stolen in Tripoli… 20,000 M-16s Stolen in Kuwait… Related? ( The Daily Sheeple, Aug 14, 2013):

By now most have probably heard about the 400 surface-to-air missiles that were stolen in Benghazi. An attorney for the witnesses/whistleblowers came out in an interview with WMAL yesterday to drop this bombshell.

WMAL reports:

“I do not know whether [the missiles] were at the annex, but it is clear the annex was somehow involved in the process of the distribution of those missiles,” said DiGenova in an interview Monday with WMAL’s Mornings On The Mall.

How did DiGenova get this information? He told WMAL that ever since he and his wife and law partner, Victoria Toensing, began representing the Benghazi whistleblowers last spring, they have been contacted by several people eager to share information about what really happened the night of September 11, 2012, when four Americans were killed in the Consulate attack, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens.

- ISIS Head Makes First Video Appearance (ZerioHedge, July 5, 2014):

A few days ago we reported that the blitz surge of the “cool”, social network-friendly faction of Al-Qaeda known as ISIS, which over the past week went so far as to declare the formation of its own sovereign state, the Islamic State on the territory of Iraq and Syria, has so irked not only the conventional enemies of extremist fundamentalist Islam but also none other than al-Qaeda itself, which as we explained before may be forced to go to war against ISIS in order to preserve its waning relevance, status and credibility.

At the center of this rapid and dramatic ascent by a group virtually nobody had heard of as recently as a month ago is a man called Aby Bakr al-Baghdadi, who unlike the leaders of al-Qaeda, has kept an extremely low profile despite his recent appointment as “caliph” by the jihadists.

Until now. Continue reading »

- ISIS Is Taking Over Iraq Using Captured American Weapons (Economic Collapse, July 2, 2014):

ISIS is marching through city after city in Iraq, and they are doing it with American weapons.  Thanks to a series of stunning victories in recent months, ISIS has captured a vast array of U.S. military equipment including trucks, Humvees, rockets, artillery pieces and Stinger missiles.  When the U.S. was pulling out of Iraq, we were extremely generous to the new Iraqi army.  We basically armed them to the teeth with equipment that U.S. taxpayers paid for.  But now that the new Iraqi army is folding like a 20 dollar suit in the face of ISIS jihadists, vast quantities of that military equipment are falling into the hands of some of the most radical jihadists the world has ever seen.  And considering the fact that ISIS also recently seized the equivalent of nearly $500 million in cash from a bank in Mosul, the leadership of ISIS won’t be having much problem buying anything else that they might need either.  ISIS is getting stronger with each passing day, and they are not going to be satisfied until the Iraqi government has been toppled.  It is a geopolitical mess of epic proportions, and there don’t seem to be any easy solutions on the horizon.

To say that the new Iraqi army has been incompetent would be a massive understatement.  Not only have they run away like scared kittens from these jihadists, they have also left behind staggering amounts of weaponry for them.  According to the Los Angeles Times, ISIS has captured “the weapons stores of the 2nd and 3rd [Iraqi army] divisions in Mosul, the 4th division in Salah al Din, the 12th division in the areas near Kirkuk, and another division in Diyala”.  And we aren’t just talking about rifles and ammunition.  We are talking about some pretty impressive hardwareContinue reading »

- ‘We’ll take back Spain’: Fighters claim ISIS to seize ‘occupied lands’ (RT, July 4, 2014):

A group of jihadists claiming to be part of ISIS have vowed to invade Spain along with all other “occupied lands” in a video posted on the web.

The men say Spain is the land of their forefathers and that they are prepared to die for their nascent Islamic State.

The video of two men claiming to be militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) has taken the Spanish media by storm. The minute-long footage shows them speaking in Spanish, and saying that ISIS will take over Spain.

“I tell you, Spain is the land of our forefathers, and, Allah willing, we are going to liberate it, with the might of Allah,” says one of the men. He adds that the group won’t stop at Spain and intends to spread its Islamic Caliphate across the world.

“I say to the entire world as a warning: We are living under the Islamic banner, the Islamic Caliphate. We are going to die for it until we liberate all the occupied lands, from Jakarta to Andalusia,” he said. Continue reading »

- ‘They fled like rats’: ISIS snatches key Syrian oilfield from rival militants (RT, July 4, 2014):

ISIS fighters have seized an oilfield on the Syria-Iraq border, snatching it from the control of rival militants. The Pentagon has said while it considers the Iraqi Army capable of defending Baghdad, outside aid may be required to repel the jihadists.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that the key oil field in the Deir al-Zor province had fallen under the control of fighters from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) on Thursday.

“ISIS took control of the Al-Omar oil field,”
located north of the strategic town of Mayadin, also under its control since dawn Thursday, said the Observatory.

The group cited an amateur video that was posted on YouTube purporting to show the capture of the oilfield. The footage shows a bearded man who is identified by the cameraman as Commander Hommam boasting that the field was taken without a single shot being fired.

“We took it [the oil field] over without any fighting. They fled like rats,” the commander said, referring to fighters from the Syrian opposition group al-Nusra who had previously been controlling the oilfield. Continue reading »

On Wednesday, Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson said he directed the Transportation Security Administration to put more security measures in place after sharing “recent and relevant” information with foreign allies.

“Aviation security includes a number of measures, both seen and unseen, informed by an evolving environment,” Johnson said in a statement. “We will continue to adjust security measures to promote aviation security without unnecessary disruptions to the traveling public.” Continue reading »

- Official 2014 IMF Forecast Based on ‘Magic Number Seven’-Steve Quayle (USAWatchdog, July 2, 2014):

Radio talk show veteran and 10 time published author, Steve Quayle, says dark powers are at work in the financial markets at the highest levels of global government.  Quayle contends, “First of all, the illuminati and the occult are one in the same with hidden meanings to the general population, but announcements to people on the inside.”  At the beginning of 2014, the head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Christine Lagarde, gave a primer on numerology to an audience at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.  She did it as a set up to an official IMF forecast for “what we should expect for 2014.”   Why is this important now?  The IMF forecast was based on what Lagarde called the “magic 7,” and July is the seventh month of the year.  Lagarde is overtly using numerology to forecast big changes this year and this month.  For example, Lagarde pointed out that 2014 will “mark the 7th anniversary of the financial market jitters” that started in 2007.  If you individually add up the numbers of the year 2014 (2+0+1+4=7), you get the number 7.  Lagarde also said that 2014 “will mark the 70th anniversary, 70th anniversary, drop the zero, seven, of the Bretton Woods Conference that actually gave birth to the IMF” (7 + 0 = 7).  Lagarde also said, “And it will be the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, 25th” (2 + 5 = 7).  Lagarde also brings up the G-20 out of nowhere.  Is that a reference to a date?  (G is the 7the letter of the alphabet and this might be a reference to 7/20/2014.)   Quayle explains, “People have to understand the number 7 to realize why this is critical.  The number 7 is used 287 times; it’s used in the Old and New Testament.  What is critical about this is these people rule their lives by the stars and numerology.  Never in anything have I monitored in my 25 years being on talk radio that I have witnessed such a blatant presentation of the number 7.  When she says it’s ‘quite a number,’ yes, it’s God’s number, but these people worship their god and their god is Lucifer.” Continue reading »

Chris Martenson, who holds a PhD in pathology and an MBA, contends 2008 was just a warm up to a much bigger calamity. Martenson says, “2008 was the shot across the bow, and that’s when our credit experiment broke, and we have been doing everything possible to paper over it since. . . . When you take real stuff out of the ground, you grow food, you take oil out of the ground, you process ore into steel, and you manufacture real things–that’s real wealth. The claims (such as stocks, bonds and currencies) have to be in proportion to the real wealth, and the claims have been growing and growing and growing for so long that they are way out of balance to the real stuff, and the real stuff isn’t growing like it used to. You can see that in the GDP numbers for the U.S. or the world at large. Growth is slowing, slowing, slowing, and the claims are getting larger and larger. This represents a huge and gigantic source of potential energy. There is a gap there and it’s going to get closed. Only one of two things are going to happen: (1) real stuff starts expanding like crazy, or (2) the claims get destroyed. That’s what we are talking about when we talk about a market crash. The claims get destroyed. People get wiped out. The people who don’t get ruined are people safely over in the real wealth already. If you own an unencumbered farm, if you own a productive asset, if you own gold or silver, or if you own your house outright, you are going to be vastly safer than . . . someone who is leveraged and hinged into this other system.”

- ISIS Is Hiring Judges, Doctors And Engineers As Al-Qaeda Prepares For War Against Caliphate (ZeroHedge, July 2, 2014):

As we reported earlier, in what was perhaps the first official action by the jihadists with the glossy year end brochures, the newly crated ISIS Caliphate which stretches from Syria to Iraq (and which is not longer ISIS, just IS, or Islamic State) made a global call urging the Muslim proletariat to immigrate to the newly created territory in a clear example of what in the US would be called “porous” immigration policy. Judging the by the expansive proposed borders, the terrorist organization, which in the past has received occasional training and support by the US and with a penchant for cannibalism will have a while to wait before its removes all the slack from its incipient economy, more or less like the Fed.

ISIS-Caliphate

But perhaps more curious is that the leader of the self-proclaimed al-Qaeda spin off nation, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, in addition to a broad religious call to arms, so to speak, also beckoned workers with a specific skillset to present themselves for duty: namely those with military, medical and managerial skills were urged to flock to the newly-declared state in an audio recording released Tuesday.

As Al Arabiya reports, the newly named “caliph” said the appeal especially applied to “judges and those who have military and managerial and service skills, and doctors and engineers in all fields.” Continue reading »

Iraq Receives First Fighter Jets From “Our Russian Friends”  (ZeroHedge, June 30, 2014):

Having offered “complete support” for Iraq’s embattled PM Maliki, the troubled nation receives its first shipment of “America deluded us” Russian fighter jets. As RT reports, the Iraqi Ministry of Defense on Sunday confirmed receiving five Su-25 fighter jets in accordance with the deal with Moscow. Iraqi Army Lieutenant General Anwar Hamad Amen Ahmed explained, “our Russian friends have also sent their own experts to assist us in preparing the aircraft. All the logistics have been planned for as well.” The proxy war continues…

The Great War – or World War I, as it would come to be called — was triggered one hundred years ago this month when an assassin shot and killed Austria’s Archduke Ferdinand in Sarajevo. Through a series of tangled alliances and a cascade of misunderstandings and blunders, that single act of violence brought on a bloody catastrophe. More than 37 million people were killed or wounded.

- The Pentagon Has A Problem: “Vetting Moderate Al Qaeda Rebels Can Be Tough” – So Here Is A Simple Solution… (ZeroHedge, June 27, 2014):

When we reported yesterday that Obama had submitted yet another $500 million funding request to arm “moderate” Syrian rebels as opposed to extreme al-Qaeda cannibals and other ISIS faithful, we noted the glaring oversight at the heart of this plan when we asked “how will Obama make the distinction? Well, that’s what polling is all about. To wit: “Excuse me, would you describe yourself as a moderate or extreme al-Qaeda jihadist. Answering affirmatively to the former assures you your own US-made Humvee and a few thousand bullets to shoot at US soldiers across the border in Iraq.” Today, none other than the Pentagon’s rear admiral John Kirby confirmed precisely these worries when he said, via Bloomberg:

  • KIRBY SAYS A LOT OF WORK NEEDED TO VET MODERATE SYRIAN REBELS
  • KIRBY SAYS CONCERNED ABOUT AID `ENDING UP IN THE WRONG HANDS’

While we share his sentiment (which we doubt is much of a concern to the US MIC as it will merely provide one set of US-made weapons to destroy another set of US-made weapons) we repeat that there is a very simple solution. It comes from Andy Borowitz, who appears to have read our mind, and is breathtakingly simple.

“As the war in Iraq goes from bad to worse, and as the Obama administration is tired of being humiliated by a bunch of extremist Al Qaeda tribesman, the president is once again pivoting to the place where it all started. It is here where he intends on arming the local Al Qaeda jihadists once again, and will request half a billion dollars from Congress to achieve just that. The good news: Obama will only arm just the “moderate” al Qaeda forces. So there is nothing to fear.”

- Obama Asks For $500 Million To Equip Syrian Rebels As The ISIS Juggernaut In Iraq Spreads (ZeroHedge, June 26, 2014):

It is going from bad to worse for the Iraqi government, whose armed forces according to at least one unconfirmed media report, have suffered major losses.

Perhaps confirming this, is the report from Reuters that overnight ISIS continued it southern creep toward Baghdad, and has now reached a town that is just an hour from Baghdad which is home to four natural gas fields on Thursday, “another gain by Sunni insurgents who have swiftly taken large areas to the north and west of the Iraqi capital.”

The overnight offensive included Mansouriyat al-Jabal, home to the gas fields where foreign companies operate, security forces said. The fighting threatens to rupture the country two and a half years after the end of U.S. occupation.

Meanwhile, the Jihadists continue to consolidate their territories not only in the middle of the country but key transit points to Syria where as we reported yesterday, al-Qaeda forces in the two countries merged after ISIS forces and troops from the al Nusra front combined in at least one city. ISIS now control several border posts with Syria and have stolen U.S.-made weapons from Iraqi forces. Continue reading »

Baghdad May Lose Its Drinking Water As ISIS Approaches Second Largest Dam (ZeroHedge, June 25, 2014):

Against a background of having lost control of all western border crossings, Iraqi officials are concerned that ISIS fighters are advancing on the Haditha Dam, the second-largest in Iraq. With militants pouring in from the north, the northeast and the northwest, The NY Times reports, army officers told employees to stay inside and to be prepared to open the dam’s floodgates if ordered to do so. “This will lead to the flooding of the town and villages and will harm you also,” warned one worried employee but this would not be the first time that the Iraqi government and ISIS have engaged in dam warfare, as the closure of the Falluja dam earlier in the year starved areas downstream in the provinces of Najaf and Diwaniya of water needed for crops. The situation is growing more grave as Maliki rejected calls for a caretaker government and has forced Iran’s hand to help. Senator Saxby Chambliss of Georgia noted “the Iranians are playing in a big way in Iraq.”

- Intel Official: Americans Have Joined Militant Group ISIS (CBS News, June 25, 2014):

ERBIL, Iraq (CBS News/CBSDC/AP) — The Sunni militant group in Iraq is a force roughly 3,000 strong and includes some Americans, a senior intelligence official told CBS News on Tuesday.

The majority of fighters in the group, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, are of Iraqi and Syrian origin.

In all, up to 10,000 are fighting with the group, 3,000 in Iraq and another 7,000 in Syria, the intelligence official said. Between 3,000 and 5,000 are foreigners, though how many of those are in Iraq is difficult to assess.

The fighters view Syria and Iraq as one battlefield and have been able to move swiftly inside Iraq with the help of local Sunnis, ties the intelligence official described as more of a “relationship of convenience” than a formal alliance.

The official said the group, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, was well-positioned to keep the territory that it has captured but would be stretched thin if it tried to push south into Baghdad. It has intentions to target U.S. interests, the official said. Continue reading »

Description:

Financial expert John Perkins has a unique perspective about the unfolding crisis in Iraq. Perkins, a former chief economist who advised the U.S. Treasury Department and the IMF, to name a few, says, “Another force has now stepped up to the stage and that’s the militant Islamic force, and it’s a very strong force. It is a very anti-capitalistic force. So, it is the force going up against the corporatocracy. Even though Russia, China and the United States compete on many levels as they are doing in Ukraine and other places, they have a common enemy, which is this Islamic regime that wants to overthrow the corporatocracy. I am not talking about all Islamic people by any means; I am talking about the radical Islamic militant groups like ISIS that is coming into strength in the Middle East right now.” Perkins goes on to say, “Now, what’s happening suddenly in Iraq, Syria, Iran and the whole Middle East is exploding once again. I think Middle East oil is not nearly as important as a few years ago. There are other alternatives now. Having said that, the oil companies will use what’s going on in the Middle East to jack up prices as high as they think they can.”
