WAYNE MADSEN : The Middle East Imbroglio Brought On By The Neocons

Obama/CIA bogus "war on terror" laid bare  

By Wayne Madsen

In the past few days, U. S. President Joe Biden has been forced to apologize to two foreign leaders for telling the truth. Biden suggested at a forum at Harvard that Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and other so-called U.S. allies, directly enabled the rise of the Islamic State or the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). In answer to a question from an audience, Biden replied, "...when it came to Syria and the effort to bring down President Bashar Assad there, those allies’ [Turkey, Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Qatar] policies wound up helping to arm and build allies of al Qaeda and eventually the terrorist ‘Islamic State.’" Biden was forced to apologize to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan for telling the truth. 

Biden’s humiliation was obviously directed by the "deep state" forces inside his own administration who laid the groundwork for what has become a debacle for U.S. Middle East policy. Biden’s only mistake was to omit Israel and its agents-of-influence inside the U.S. government, including National Security Adviser Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the UN Samantha Power, and Assistant Secretary of State for Near East and South Asian Affairs Anne Patterson.

There is little doubt that the Muslim Brotherhood ally Erdogan has been constantly supplying ISIL with financial and weapons support in order to vanquish not only Syria’s Kurdish population but that of Iraq. Although Turkey and its erstwhile ally, Israel, had a major falling out over Gaza, that diplomatic hiccup has not stopped Israel from supporting ISIL guerrillas in Iraq and Syria. In a typical Middle Eastern "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" scenario, Turkey and Israel are seeking to see ISIL turn Syria and Iraq into warring statelets that will eventually fall prey to the territorial designs of the Muslim Brothers in Ankara and the Zionist expansionists in Jerusalem. 

Erdogan leads Turkey into oblivion
The duplicity of Turkey and the expansionism of Israel have served as yet another bitter betrayal of the Kurds who have wrongly believed that Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his predecessors favor Kurdish independence. 

Kurds in Iraq, Syria, and Turkey are mere pawns for the Ottomanist Muslim Brothers who serve Erdogan and the Zionist Jewish expansionists who support Netanyahu. 

It is the Iranians and their Iraqi Shi’a allies who have come to the assistance of Iraqi Kurdish Peshmerga forces who have battled the well-armed, well-led, and financially-flush forces of ISIL. 

It was learned by the author while recently visiting Tehran that Israeli commandos have been witnessed transferring weapons to ISIL forces in Iraq’s Anbar province. That should be enough to end Kurdistan’s historical fealty to Israel since the Israeli-supplied weapons have been used to massacre Kurdish military forces and civilians, along with minority Iraqi Christians, Shi’a, Turkoman, Yazidi, and other minorities. 

For Israel, which savors the blood of Arabs and Muslims, the news from Iraq could not be better. The United Nations said that for the month of September, 1,119 Iraqis designed in violence perpetuated by the Israeli-armed ISIL.

The Saudis and Qataris have also been quite busy in supporting their ISIL comrades. 

ISIL forces in Aleppo, Syria have been witnessed receiving bundles of cash bearing Saudi and Qatari bank stamps clearly visible on the cash wrappers even as the Saudis and Qataris claim they are fighting ISIL alongside American forces. 

It was also reported that Nabeel Rajab was arrested by Bahraini authorities for tweeting that Bahrainis who are fighting for ISIL are actually members of the Bahrain security agencies, which are under the effective control of Saudi Arabia. Rajab tweeted: "Many #Bahrain men who joined #terrorism & #ISIL came from security institutions and those institutions were the first ideological incubator." 

Bahrain is supposedly a member of President Barack Obama’s motley coalition of the Gulf Cooperation Council nations, including Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain but sans Oman, who are said to be allied in fighting ISIL. 

Kuwait’s government actively supports the actions of the Great Kuwait Campaign, which seeks to have ISIL and the Al Nusra Front in Syria, which it supports with cash, to massacre Christians along the Syrian coast and Lebanon and the "Safavids", a derogatory term used for the Shi’as and their Syrian Alawite cousins who populate both Syria and Lebanon.

Biden obviously has been briefed on similar intelligence but he has been restrained from calling out the Saudis and Qataris for their treachery. 

As for Qatar, which proudly champions the editorial "independence" of its Al Jazeera television network, the author learned while in Tehran that the Qatari network not only employed virtually the entire Arabic broadcasting service of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) to work at the Doha-based network but also bought equipment from the BBC, the insinuation being that there is very close cooperation between the propaganda goals of Al Jazeera and the BBC. Biden was merely publicly stating what German Development Minister Gerd Mueller said last month, that Arabian emirates like Qatar are directly supporting ISIL. 

Netanyahu’s covert support for ISIL has resulted in some blowback for Zionist goals in the region. 

For example, news picked up in Tehran that there has been low and middle-level contact between U.S. special operations forces and Iranian elite special operations Al Qods units of the Revolutionary Guards via the auspices of Kurdish Peshmerga forces in Iraqi Kurdistan could not have been welcome news to the Jerusalem authorities. In fact, the author learned that the interaction between U.S. and Iranian special operations personnel went exceedingly well in northern Iraq and that the sharing with Iran of U.S. intelligence on ISIL and vice versa was accomplished with no problems. Of course, such cooperation is anathema to the Israeli agents burrowed within the State Department and National Security Council so the U.S. interlocutors with the Iranians face potential career problems down the road with the "Israel firsters" who continue to dominate the U.S. foreign policy and security apparatus.

Shimon Perez with drooling doofus, U.S. traitor John Kerry
Rather than seek to eliminate ISIL’s most radical leadership, the Turks, Saudis, and other Gulf Arabs have sought to eliminate "moderates" in ISIL’s top ranks. It was learned in Iran that more "professional" ISIL commanders from Tunisia were beheaded by their takfiri subordinates in Syria. The Tunisians were replaced by even more radical Chechen commanders from Georgia and extremist Uighurs from China’s Xinjiang province. 

The ultimate authorities over ISIL see these more radical commanders as important for carrying the "Caliphate" campaign to Russia’s majority Muslim Caucasus region and China’s western frontier.

Essentially, the rise of ISIL follows the plan of Netanyahu’s "Clean Break" or Securing the [Jewish] Realm policy first enunciated in 1996 after the Israeli expansionist plan was crafted by leading American neocons like Richard Perle. The Israeli plan, which has been adopted by such Obama administration officials as Rice and Power, sees a future Middle East where Arab nation states dissolve into small emirates and imamates that are easily dominated by a Greater Israel. The formula, also supported by Zionist hedge fund billionaire George Soros, will create the same situation as what occurred with Yugoslavia: the creation of smaller nations that will lack any power to confront Israeli and Western designs. Biden, who recently railed against American banking "shylocks," may be waking up to the true enemies of America and world peace.

Heading For Ground War In Syria And Iraq

So much for the ludicrous Obama lie "No boots on the ground…"  

By Stephen Lendman

Believe nothing Obama says. His policies are polar opposite duplicitous rhetoric. Big Lies repeat one after another.

His word isn't his bond. His pledge to avoid more Middle East ground war is meaningless. All signs suggest it's coming. More on this below.

William Blum knows how US imperial works as well as anyone. He documented it over six decades.

He explained how Washington toppled dozens of governments. Crushed countless popular movements.

Slaughtered millions of people in the process. Created unspeakable human misery.

US policies are "worse than you imagine," he says. "If you flip over the rock of American foreign policy (throughout) the past century, (here's) what crawls out:"

"invasions, bombings, (subversion), overthrowing governments, suppressing (popular) movements for social change, assassinating political leaders, perverting elections, manipulating labor unions, manufacturing 'news,' death squads, torture, (chemical), biological (and nuclear) warfare, (radiological contamination), drug trafficking, mercenaries," police state repression, and war on humanity writ large.

"It’s not a pretty picture," says Blum. "It is enough to give imperialism a bad name."

Hegemons make more enemies than friends. Longstanding US policy is consistent.

It bullies, intimidates, threatens, or otherwise pressures other nations to comply with its will. Obey or else is policy.

Rogue states operate this way. America is by far the worst. None in world history match it. It's ruthlessness is unequaled.

Rule of law principles don't matter. Or democratic values. Bullies demand things their way. What they say goes.

Brute force is explicit. Permanent war is longstanding US policies. Bombs away can happen any time. Ground troops often invade.

Around 1,600 special forces infest Iraq. Perhaps many more covertly. They're not good will ambassadors. Or just advisors as administration officials say.

They're trained killers. Their mission is combat. They're often used in this role. Expect greater involvement ahead in Iraq and Syria. Supplemented by other ground forces.

On September 18, Daniel Ellsberg addressed National Press Club members and guests. He bashed Obama's air war against Iraq and Syria.

Most wars require ground forces. He compared Obama's approach to Lyndon Johnson's Gulf of Tonkin strategy. To Bush's Afghanistan and Iraq policy.

He's manipulating things incrementally toward invasion and full-scale war. Ellsberg believes failure is near-certain.

He believes whistleblowers are urgently needed "to inform Congress (about) what this country is being asked to get into."

They should remain anonymous to avoid prosecution and imprisonment.

"We need the Pentagon's real internal analysis of the cost and consequences" of what he sees coming.

He believes no one in authority there or at Langley believe Iraq and Syria objectives can be accomplished with air power alone.

Criticizing Obama publicly risks being fired. Few are bold enough to try. Former Marine Corp Commandant General James Conway pulled no punches, saying:

His strategy "doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell" of succeeding. Current Pentagon commanders likely feel the same way.

Maybe someone near retirement will say so. Joint Chiefs Chairman General Martin Dempsey came close.

He said he’ll recommend deploying US combat troops if ISIS/ISIL/the Islamic State (IS) can’t be defeated other ways.

"My view at this point is that this coalition is the appropriate way forward," he said diplomatically. “I believe that will prove true."

"But if it fails to be true, and if there are threats to the United States, then I, of course, would go back to the president and make a recommendation that may include the use of US military ground forces."

Obama "told me…to come back to him on a case-by-case basis."

In other words, Obama’s "no (US) boots on the ground" is another of his many Big Lies.

If Dempsey and other military commanders recommend them, expect invasion followed by full-scale war.

Expect potentially thousands of US troops deployed. Expect protracted fighting. Expect more mass slaughter and destruction.

Expect civilians suffering most. Expect failure like in all other US post-WW II wars.

In his 1972 book "Papers on the War," Ellsberg said about US combat troops heading for Vietnam: "The President desires that premature publicity be avoided by all possible precautions."

"The actions themselves should be taken as rapidly as practicable but in ways that should minimize any appearance of sudden changes in policy."

"The President desires that these movements and changes in combat mission should be understood as being gradual and wholly consistent with existing policy."

Separately, he told the Assistant Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Policy:

"This is dangerous. You can't keep that secret. There are reporters over there. They'll know what the Marines are doing and we’ll be shown to be concealing it."

"You know, we’re actually changing the nature of the war. We're going to be taking over the war from the South Vietnamese. I don't think you can keep that secret very long.”

Three months later, 100,000 US troops undertook combat operations. Ahead of time, nothing about administration plans leaked out.

Ellsberg regretted not having acted sooner. Releasing what's now known as the Pentagon Papers.

Explaining administration lies. Telling Americans what they deserved to know.

He urges insiders today to act like he did. As soon as possible. Explain Obama's plan for protracted war.

With boots on the ground. With quagmire implications. At a time most Americans want current conflicts ended.

When they're being lied to about existential threats. Only those Washington invents to advance its imperium.

In violation of international, constitutional and US statute laws. At the expense of world peace and security.

With vital homeland needs going begging. At a time of protracted Main Street Depression.

When millions of people desperately need help. When increasing amounts of US resources go for militarism and permanent wars.

When world peace hangs in the balance. US-created flashpoints in Ukraine, Iraq, Syria and perhaps elsewhere threaten it.

It's time war-making madness ended. Conditions are incendiary. We're "on the edge" of embroiling the entire region, Ellsberg believes. Perhaps beyond. Perhaps all Eurasia on route to global conflict.

Enraging Muslims worldwide more than ever. Without congressional debate. With virtually no chance for success.

Other than enriching war-profiteers. And duping most Americans short-term before reality checking awakens them. When it's too late to matter.

The time to prevent imperial wars is before they start. Public pressure has more clout than most people imagine.

It's absent when most needed. It lets America's criminal class get away with genocidal high crimes against peace.

Over and over again. Based on Big Lies. Damn ones. Outrageous ones. Reason enough to disbelieve everything government officials say.

Especially Obama. He's a serial liar. A world-class con man. A menace to humanity. A threat to its survival.

No matter how many times Americans are fooled, they're easy marks to be duped again. They're suckers for propaganda duplicity.

It's fed them ad nauseam. They believe it like gospel. Mostly from television. It made America a nation of morons.

Easily manipulated to support what harms their own well-being. Too distracted by bread and circuses to react responsibly. Paying dearly for inaction.

With 28 months left in office, Obama is heading America into the abyss. Neocons infest Washington. They influence policy decisions hugely. So do generals wanting more stars.

Senators John McCain (R. AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R. SC) are two of Washington's worst. They ludicrously claim defeating the Islamic State depends on removing Assad. Their Wall Street Journal op-ed said so.

Never mind international, constitutional and US statute laws. Or what Syrians want and deserve. Or that Americans want current wars ended.

They want more. Lots more. Without end. With US boots on the ground. Perhaps another generation of America's youth destroyed in the process.

"The administration still has no effective policy to remove Bashar Assad from power and end the conflict in Syria," they said.

US installed puppet regimes in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Yemen and elsewhere did nothing to stop conflicts. They rage out-of-control.

They have for years. Expect years more ahead. Perhaps another generation or longer. More on this below.

McCain and Graham combine ignorance with arrogance and lawlessness. The Islamic State and likeminded groups are US creations.

They shamelessly blamed America's crimes on Assad. He's fighting to save Syrian sovereignty. He has overwhelming popular support.

Claiming he "knowingly allowed the group to grow and operate with impunity inside the country" is rubbish.

They're imported from dozens of countries. US special forces and CIA operatives train them in Jordan and Turkey. Some in Georgia.

They're taught gruesome ways to kill. Atrocities perhaps they hadn't thought of. Including beheadings.

Barbarism of the worst kind. US specialties in wars. Ones without mercy and then some.

McCain and Graham's notion of liberating Syria is plundering it. Stealing its resources. Exploiting its people.

Turning workers into wage slaves. Balkanizing it for easier control. Eliminating an Israeli rival. Isolating Iran.

Targeting the Islamic Republic the same way. Perhaps destroying the entire region in the process.

Hegemons know one thing only: wars without end. Without rules. Without mercy.

With others in mind. An endless progression of ruthlessness. Lawlessness. Barbarity writ large.

Former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta foresees endless war. In his first interview on his new book "Worthy Fights: A Memoir of Leadership in War and Peace, he said:

"I think we're looking at kind of a 30-year war." Extending beyond current theaters. Obama erred, he said. He "lost his way."

By not maintaining more US troops in Iraq, he believes. A residual force able to confront internal opposition.

By rejecting advice from top aides. Including himself. By failing to sufficiently arm anti-Assad forces sooner. With heavier weapons.

By not acting (based on Big Lies claiming) Assad used chemical weapons.

Panetta barely stopped short of urging troops on the ground in Syria. He questioned Washington's credibility.

Especially with Obama in charge. Its determination "to stick this out."

Obama has "to jump in the ring and fight it out for the next two years," said Panetta.

Like other past and current Washington officials, he believes US imperial priorities matter most. Means justify ends.

Might justifies right. Millions of corpses are a small price to pay. So is ravaging and destroying one country after another.

Hegemons operate lawlessly. Unapologetically. Their own objectives alone matter.

Achieving them any way possible. Regardless of harm to others. No matter the consequences.

Billion - Dollar Lawsuits Claim GMO Corn "Destroyed" U.S. Exports To China

Time for Americans to stock their own uncontaminated seed banks for home gardens  


Three class-action lawsuits filed Friday claim that agribusiness power Syngenta is to blame for depressed corn exports to China since the seed company released a genetically-engineered variant of the crop before it was approved by Beijing.

At issue is Syngenta’s 2009 release and distribution of its MIR162 genetically-modified corn known as Agrisure Viptera, which is engineered to fend off certain insects known to decimate corn crops. While approved for use in the United States, Chinese regulators have yet to sanction the export of Viptera. Syngenta is responsible for “destroy[ing] the export of US corn to China,” which led to “depressed prices for all domestic corn,” according to Volnek Farms, the lead plaintiff in a lawsuit filed in an Omaha, Nebraska federal court. 

Volnek and others are claiming $1 billion in compensation.

The two other suits were filed in Iowa and Illinois federal courts, according to Courthouse News. In addition to monetary claims, the Nebraska and Iowa suits seek to enjoin Syngenta from cultivating and marketing MIR162, or Viptera.

In addition to alleging the destruction of the US corn export market to China, Iowa plaintiffs Cronin Inc. and Jim Ruba Jr., who say they do not even plant genetically-modified corn, claim that Syngenta offered“materially misleading statements relating to the approval status of MIR162 in China and the impact the lack of approval would have on the market.”

“Syngenta's widespread contamination of the US corn and corn seed supply with MIR162, which will continue to foreclose the US export market to China in future years and will continue to lead to lower corn prices per bushel in the US market, as a result,” the Iowa plaintiffs added.

China’s importation of US corn is expected to rise, Nebraska plaintiff Volnek said, citing the US Department of Agriculture. But China ceased importing US corn after detecting MIR162 in shipments, Volnek and company added.

Though Viptera has been planted on only about three percent of US farm acreage, it is difficult to say for sure "that any shipments of US corn will not be contaminated with trace amounts of MIR162," the Nebraska plaintiffs said.

The commingling of corn from various sources at corn distribution centers is “essentially impossible,"according to the Iowa complaint, which cites other major grain companies Archer Daniels Midland and Cargill, which do not accept Viptera.

Syngenta has been encouraged by the National Grain and Feed Association (NGFA) to stop selling Viptera, according to the Iowa claim. 

The NGFA has estimated that actions taken in China against US corn have caused prices to drop by 11 cents per bushel.

The Iowa suit alleges that the release of Syngenta’s Viptera caused the US-to-China corn export market to fall by 85 percent.

Syngenta has claimed that "the vast majority of corn produced in the US is used domestically," and that exports are not as important, though the USDA says 20 percent of corn produced in the US is exported. These conflicting accounts led to accusations by Iowa plaintiffs that Syngenta has engaged in willful misrepresentation.

Nebraska plaintiffs allege "reckless disregard" for the commodity market.

"Syngenta's decision to bring Viptera to the market crippled the 2013-14 corn export market to China,"they said.

In 2011, Syngenta requested in federal court that a grain elevator firm, Bunge North America, remove signs that said it would not accept Viptera-variety corn. 

The request was denied.

In April, the NGFA, a trade organization for grain elevators, reported that China had barred nearly 1.45 million tons of corn shipments since 2013, resulting in about $427 million in lost sales. China first halted shipments of American corn in November, as RT previously reported.

Concern over the safety of genetically engineered food may have played a role in a recent decision by Chinese officials to move away from GE production of the nation’s own. In August, China’s Ministry of Agriculture announced it would not continue with a program that developed genetically-modified rice and corn.
