So much for arming moderate rebels. A thousand members of the FSA have joined ISIS. You can read the story here at antiwar.com.
What the American press will not discuss as they gleefully use the tragedy over the skies of Ukraine in the form of a downed Malaysian jetliner to try and pressure Putin, is that these “moderate” Syrian rebels are taking with them Turkish, Qatari and Saudi supplied surface to air missiles as they join the ranks of ISIS. Yes, ISIS, now probably has in its arsenal of weapons missiles with the same abilities that were used to down the Malaysian plane over Eastern Ukraine.
So why is the U.S. so careful to give the impression that the surface to air missiles being given to the FSA were given by the Qataris, Turks and Saudis and not the Americans, even though they know full well that there is a high probability that they will land in the hands of ISIS? Its called plausible deniability, and it is worth reading up on.
The question that needs to be asked here is this:
Did the Obama administration make an innocent mistake, or was is this part of a cynical plan?
I’m inclined to lean towards the latter for a simple reason: The Americans have been collaborating closely with the Saudis, Jordanians, Turks, Qataris and others. These countries, along with the CIA have assets on the ground in Syria. Are we to believe that the obvious strengthening of ISIS in Syria went undetected? Are we also to believe that no one in the Jordanian, American, Turkish, Qatari or Saudi intelligence services thought that the surface to air missiles being handed to “moderate” rebels wouldn’t end up in the hands of ISIS?
Of course not. These people may be blinded by hubris, but they aren’t stupid. Instead, the defection of FSA members to ISIS with Qatari supplied and American approved surface to air missiles serve a useful purpose: When an airline passenger jet is bought down over the skies of Iraq by ISIS (the jet has to have the requisite amount of Europeans on board to illicit true “shock” a la the Malaysian airline passenger shot over Ukraine), it will give the U.S. the green light to massively ramp up the invasion of Iraq, dismantle the pesky, democratically elected government of Iraq that refuses to toe the line, and install another regime that is more favorable.
But, we as believers know the Quran is very clear:
“And when those who disbelieved devised plans against you that they might confine you or slay you or drive you away; and they devised plans and Allah too had arranged a plan; and Allah is the best of planners.” Al Quran, Chapter 8, Verse 30.
