America/NATO Build, Promote, Protect and Profit from Terrorism
The utter confusion of the public and the pounding out of lies by the gov't could result in, well, more confusion by the public and more pounding out of lies by gov't. A Russian ground attack aircraft was shot down by "moderate" rebels and one pilot was murdered as he parachuted down toward the soon-to-be bunk mates of Allah. Of course, the Jihadis shoot down their Russian enemy during a bombing run, right? Whooooa, this hurly burly is deep, multi-faceted and vicious. Keep your eye on the ball.
History - We all know that the US/Saudis recruited, trained, paid and equipped al-Queda during the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan during the 1980s. But, did you know that the program never stopped? Every Muslim country that has been assaulted, bombed, invaded and overthrown by the US since the 80s has yielded a valuable treasure - Young dumb and full of ... naive men. It could be argued that war machines in general need these types of boys and I've been one.
My history - My well documented role in recruiting Muslim warriors is in A Henchman's Honor. I personally recruited them from the ranks of the Bosnian 5 Corps, which was stood down and left thousands of very experienced young fighters in the unemployment line. I made them an offer they couldn't refuse. They came in droves to get on al-Queda (the database). Once on the list, the soldier received $1000 per month, which went to his destitute family. I drove/escorted more than a few of these guys to the Zagreb airport to be flown to Afghanistan and Libya for training. The recruit was a family sacrifice like the old Greek Spartan war state, who took the oldest sun at the age of five.
We created a weapon that was Islamic, practiced the Muslim tradition and culture, spoke Arabic and weren't gun shy. After enduring the media onslaught of lies, deception, distractions and fear, the public could almost be forgiven for not asking two simple questions after the Russian bomber was shot down. Who benefits? and where does ISIS money come from?
Who benefits - Al Queda/ISIS/ISIL/IS/Victoria's Secret lingerie models, call them what you want, they are a US financed and controlled gang who was aimed at Syria's Assad so the US could put a pipeline from Saudi Arabia to western Europe via Syria and Turkey. This would end the importance of Russian gas heading west and maybe cut them out of the loop altogether. It would force Russia to be more Asian and less European in its sphere of influence.
ISIS has sent $800 million in black gold to Turkey so far. Rumors say that President Erdogan of Turkey has his hands in an oil company and benefits personally from the oil flow. Corruption is one thing, murdering Russians is another. Erdogan has surely got the attention of Russia's FSB (formerly KGB) and there will be blow back. Erdogan won't benefit in the long run. He'd better learn how to walk backwards and look up or life will be short.
Follow the money - The whole "terrorist" program was invented, and is maintained and directed by the US/Saudi banksters as it always has been. Some like to pretend that the terrorists were initially funded by the US, but they went rogue. That piece of BS is easily displaced when you consider that the US fake bombed (90% of the bombers returned to base with their bombs still attached) ISIS for many months as ISIS grew, but one week of Russian bombing sent ISIS into a tailspin and running for the next sand hill. So, ISIS is an American army unit. Stop now, relax, rub your temples. ISIS is an American army unit. Say it.
The back stab Putin talked about - Turkey, a NATO member, was cutting a deal with Russia to install nuclear power plants in the country and was making plans to run a pipeline from Russia, through Turkey to Europe. Putin had made what he thought was a master stroke. He got his pipeline to Europe without going through the Ukraine and a vast amount of Turkey's domestic nuclear energy would be controlled by Russian physicists. Turkey wasn't so NATO after all. Not so fast.
Erdogan is a politician. He saw that ousting Assad and having Saudi oil flow through Turkey would still make him wealthy. He would be in good standing with NATO and, by assisting ISIS, he would calm the radical and powerful Islamists in Turkey. Then, he could finally crush the Kurds. All he had to do was to stab the most intelligent world leader in the back. He probably didn't even think about it.
All the evidence says that Turkey is now an open backer of state sponsored terrorism and NATO is harboring that state. With the US having a strong history in all things terror, NATO has become the most massive terrorist organization in world history. Devoid of all the principles stated in its constitution, the US is free to wield force, pillage and murder the world. It is not evil when we do it?
The fallout - Stabbing Putin in the back over nuclear energy and a pipeline is one thing, but you don't murder a Russian pilot and get zero blow back! Erdogan is now hiding behind the other terrorists (NATO) coat tails and begging for help. NATO has him where they want him.
Erdogan has loud and clearly set himself up as someone who won't honor a contract. Like France, any deal with Russia isn't worth the paper its written on. He is firm on backing and profiting from terror and has no bones about knocking off the leader of a sovereign country (Assad). It's possible that he will get a dose of his own medicine.
Revenge is a dish best served hot, but what will NATO do when justice is served? NATO is basically bankrupt and its future R&D programs are not up to what Russia is developing. Hitler sent 4 million of the best soldiers of the day into Russia. The Swedes and Napoleon attacked with less but the results were the same. NATO isn't even remotely comparable to the German Wehrmacht. If you want to tackle the bear, you'd better be realize that the consequences are total. If you want to tackle a bear and a dragon at the same time, you'd better be willing to eat a lot of cabbage with chopsticks in order to impress your new masters.
What I would do - Having some experience in striking and blow back leaves me a lot of room for contemplation. One thing that's certain is that Russia has to put the ball back in NATOs court. The question is the degree to which Putin will do it. I believe it should be a personal message. Erdogan's plane could blow up. Or military pay back. Russia could strike a Turkish F-16 base. Either way, it would leave NATO in a huge pickle. Much of NATO won't want to go freeze to death with the Grande Armee and that notion would tear NATO apart. The remainder of the east bound ice men would be chewed up and their bodies wouldn't be thawed out until summer. Note to all the military enthusiasts out there: This is a bad time to join the army.
Any way you slice it, NATO has attacked the Russian military. It is a loud provocation. Russia is forced to react or to blink. Does Putin seem like a blinker to you?
