Duping DelISIS

I don’t have a lot of time to exhaustively research a subject before passing comment anymore but
I know that as another war is waged in the middle east by Western powers, it certainly has little to do with protecting human life and liberty and everything to do with geo-political strategy; control of the region and its resources, the arms trade and further heightening the fear of terrorism at home to justify increasing infringement of our rights and privacy.

A friend sent me this video made by award-winning poet, actor, playwright, Heathcote Williams. 

I approve of the scathing biography of David Cameron and appreciate the poetic delivery.The narration could do with sounding less like a Grimm’s fairytale dripping with relish at severed heads on spikes but that’s down to my personal taste. There is something vitally important I query about the facts: Many commentators and dissenting voices, such as Williams', are saying that ISIS, or IS (Islamic State) is the inevitable spawn of anger towards the West and its military campaigns, atrocities and war crimes. Although this may be partly true because Al-queada and IS (that has being been called an offshoot of Al-queada by some media outlets) have taken on a life of their own in an ongoing cycle of provocation, it is omitting the likely probability that they are the desired outcome of the original creations by Western 'intelligence agencies (CIA, MOSSAD, MI6). I want to have a quick look at the evidence for this.

IS has certainly received much of it’s wealth through Western allies such as Turkey and Saudi Arabia. This has been documented in the mainstream media. Now the Arab allies are helping USA to defeat them?
There are also reports that they were trained by the USA. That they were trained to fight Assad and not intended to become part of an extremist group like ISIS, one report says. I ask, why all the money then?

Let’s look at our previous enemy, Al-qaida, and what Robin Cook had to say about them. Al-qaida supposedly flew hijacked planes into The World Trade Centre in New York on 11 September, 2001. Look at previous posts to see why the official version of what happened on 9/11 could not be true. Cook died on a mountain top in 2005, whether it was a natural death or not, it was convenient to the wars' champions and profiteers that he was silenced.

The mythical Weapons of Mass Destruction were the justification for the next war in Iraq which began in 2003. Let’s remember what happened to Dr Richard Kelly who suggested that the infamous WMD dossier was ‘sexed up’ to provide grounds for Blair’s war in Iraq. Again, whether or not you believe he was murdered or committed suicide, it was convenient for the war's profiteers that he was silenced.

Today,  IS is the justification for war and the media has been feeding us the ‘proof’ of their barbarity and the need for intervention by reporting the beheadings of US journalist James Foley and British aid worker, David Haines.
I have watched the "beheadings" and I don't believe them to be real (otherwise I could not have begun to view the videos. The idea of watching a real one is abhorrent to me.) The knife ‘cuts’ across their neck at least six times and in both cases, there is not a drop of blood. There would be a lot of blood even from a shallow incision on the jugular, especially with an accelerated heartbeat. There are just so many things about the videos, including the calm recital of the script given to them by ISIS, the lack of any physical flinching from the victim, and the families' reactions which are very unconvincing. You can find endless youtube videos of analysis. Later the Telegraph reported the James Foley video was 'possibly staged' but that an execution took place at some point.

How is this not relevant? I mean, leaping lizards, how is that not of interest?
Certainly, horrible executions have taken place all over; in Afghanistan, in Iraq, in Syria, in Libya, in Saudi Arabia at the hands of their government. But for some reason ISIS chooses to release videos of fake ones? Why? Where are the brutal nutty jihadists when you need them  to make a video to provoke the USA and Britian into bombing them? The executions of an American and a Briton by IS provide the reaction for less resistance to a war with Syria. Whose hands does that play into?

Let’s also have a look at James Foley’s family’s reaction. It is interesting. As one facebook user commented: "I have never seen a woman so radiant and refreshed." Compare Foley's sister with this chilling expression of Dianne Downs on this TED talk about how to spot a liar. Dianne Downs shot her children and then drove them to the hospital claiming a 'straggly haired stranger' burst into her home. We see a calm recollection of events followed by a 'leaking' of ‘duping delight’' -the urge to smile because you are fooling someone, like when a kid tells a fib and cannot suppress a grin..but obviously much more evil in this case.

James Foley's sister has almost an identical expression to Diane Downs and both siblings have ill-disguised 'duping delight' throughout. Also note the brother's vigorous rubbing of his eyelid to try get some moisture into the brother's dry eye and the picture falling off the wall as though the set had just been rigged up in five minutes! I mean, do you think this is how your family members would react if you died. Even if you did a high risk job where they felt your death was a matter of time? Do you imagine your siblings would be grinning after your 'gruesome beheading' went viral on the internet?

US air strikes hit grain silos and killed civilians, including 16 children last night. The words of Zbigniew Brzezinski will ring in my ears as I pray for peace tonight. 

"The idea was to create a few stirred up Muslims."

Zbigniew Brzezinski is on the Council of Foreign Relations and an adviser to Obama. For those who know a little more about shadow government, he is also David Rockefella's partner on the Trilateral commission.  Recalling a longer quote from his book, 'The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives,' (basically an instruction manual to invasion of the Middle East and what we have witnessed over the last thirty years:)

"It is also a fact that America is too democratic at home to be autocratic abroad. This limits the use of America's power, especially its capacity for military intimidation. Never before has a populist democracy attained international supremacy. But the pursuit of power is not a goal that commands popular passion, except in conditions of a sudden threat or challenge to the public's sense of domestic well-being." 

I don’t have a lot of time. I like reading Thomas the Tank Engine and blowing raspberries on my kid's tummy. But I'm not a fucking moron and I don't support the ongoing terrorism and duping delight of our governments.
