According to Tyler Durden’s June 12 article titled “How The US Is Arming Both Sides Of The Iraqi Conflict” published on ” Zero Hedge, only a week ago the US government delivered the first of 36 F-16s to Iraq.
The article further states that over the months of March and April, 2014, the US government provided Iraq with 100 Hellfire missiles, assault rifles, 11 million rounds of ammunition and other supplies. It is unknown how much of these newly delivered weapons and equipment have fallen into the hands of the al Qaeda/ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria).
Summarizing Durden’s article: “the US was arming and training the same Al Qaeda/ISIS groups of Jihadists, that it concurrently gave Iraq weapons to fight. And since the Iraq army has so far proven utterly incapable of any resistance, it is now up to US drones to “fight” the same “rebels” that the US itself was collaborating with until a month or so ago.”
The clear winner here? The US Military-Industrial Complex, of course, as well as the Banks who lend money to the governments to fight wars provoked by various “developed nation” spy agencies.
In Anthony Cartalucci’s article, “America’s Covert Re-Invasion of Iraq” featured on Global Research, we learn that the “heavily armed, well funded army” withdrew its forces from western provinces in Syria and redeployed them into eastern Syria along the border with Iraq as reported by a Lebanese newspaper in March.
The Wall Street Journal and other mainstream media news outlets are reporting “the swift collapse of Iraqi security forces caught the US off guard”.
“Despite drone flights collecting intelligence, and a 3-year ongoing CIA program all along the Turkish-Syrian border to “monitor” and “arm” “moderate” militants fighting the Syrian government, the US claims it was caught “by surprise.”
Cartalucci leaves us with one remaining question: “if a Lebanese newspaper knew ISIS was moving eastward, why didn’t the CIA?
The obvious answer is the CIA did know, and is simply feigning ignorance at the expense of their reputation to bait its enemies into suspecting the agency of incompetency rather than complicity in the horrific terroristic swath ISIS is now carving throughout Northern Iraq.”
