With all the national news on ISIS, aka The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, I figured perhaps I should voice my own take on the situation.
Fact is, ISIS is a direct result and consequence of US intervention and meddling in the middle east, but more alarming is the fact that the US government FUNDED, TRAINED AND ARMED ISIS.
ISIS is a direct offshoot of the Iraqi branch of Al-Qaeda, created in 2013 and active in not only Iraq, but in Syria as part of the collective "Syrian Rebels" which are supported by the US government. Arizona Senator John McCain even met members of these terrorists groups in person while in Syria awhile back.
It is my belief that had the US not gotten involved in Iraq to begin with, there would be no threat as I'm sure Saddam Hussein would have put down any threat to his nation, much like so with Gaddafi in Libya. When the US meddles in the governmental systems of nations abroad, it angers and incites the peoples of the region because they desire to form their own systems, not be under de-facto US rule via US placed puppet regimes.
Prior to the murder of Hussein, Iraq was no threat to the US and it is my belief that the US should NOT get involved in the internal conflicts of other nations. It is NOT the job of the US government to be the world's police, nor is it supposed to be the burden of the American taxpayers who fund it through billions of dollars in tax revenue, which I may add has caused the US to be 18 TRILLION in debt, the majority of it due to the failures and incompetence of Barack Obama and US Congress over the last 6 years.
The latest news cycle regarding ISIS is the false notion that ISIS may strike against a major city of these United States, which I personally think is a load of BS fabricated in order to sell the idea of war to the dumb sheep of America. Surely ISIS is well equipped thanks to the US government who allowed, aided, facilitated and abetted the Benghazi attacks in order to move weapons into ISIS hands, and then covered it up, but the notion that ISIS is capable of large scale or catastrophic attack against any city in the US is insanely absurd and unrealistic.
So now the US wants to go to war against ISIS, and organization that the US created, funded, trained and equipped. The US has a history of this kind of thing, as seen with Afghanistan's Taliban, as well as with Osama Bin Laden, even Saddam Hussein. It just never ends.
How convenient, this planned "crisis" in order to enable more war and keep US troops in the middle east.
As an afterthought, several hours after writing this post, I did end up making a video discussing my suspicions in regards to the ISIS beheading of James Foley..
