Good day, Good People.
The word for today is Eristic, an adjective. It means aiming at victory rather than truth. As a noun, it is a person given to disputation. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of ISIS, is eristic in both senses of the word.
There is no doubt George W. Bush and Dick Cheney and their cabal, Donald Rumsfeld, Condoleeza Rice, Douglas Feith, Paul Wolfowitz, and others in the Bush administration are responsible for the illegal invasion of Iraq. Karl Rove, Bush’s political advisor, told him if he did not go to war he would not be reelected. Because of it illegality, no resolution by the United Nations to invade Iraq, Bush and his cabal are responsible for all of the homicides, the deaths, of U.S. military personnel, Iraqi soldiers, and civilians. Rumsfeld did not send enough troops to maintain law and order after the war was over, incompetent. When are they going to be indicted for their war crimes? George W. Bush intentionally misled Congress when he told the members the war would only cost sixty billion. As of today it is two trillion.
Dick Cheney actively, knowingly and intentionally provided inaccurate information to the American people and the world when he said Saddam Hussein supported Al-Qaeda. The information was false, and he knew it. He also actively, knowingly and intentionally provided inaccurate information to the American people and the world that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. Again the information was false, and he knew it.
Bush and his cabal disbanded the Iraqi army — a serious error in judgment. No organization to keep law and order and protect the Iraqi citizens. Bush and his cabal removed all of the people who were running the Iraq government, the Baathist, from their jobs. This left chaos and a vacuum for the taking — another serious error in judgment.
Bush backed Nouri al-Maliki for prime minister. Once he was prime minister he did not include Sunnis or Kurdistanis in his government as agreed with Bush. Bush did nothing about it. Maliki began to abuse and take revenge upon the Sunni and Kurdish populations.
The United States military left Iraq at the request of Nouri al-Maliki so he could disenfranchise further the Sunni and Kurdish populations. Bush thought he would be his puppet. Not only was he not his puppet, but he ordered the U.S. military personnel to leave, and they did. This decision by Maliki created chaos and another civil war because he did not include Kurds and Sunnis in the governance of Iraq.
The first civil war was caused by the illegal invasion of Iraq in March of 2003. Donald Rumsfeld did not allow for enough troops to win the war and keep law and order afterward. Chief of Staff General Shinseki had developed a plan for ten years in case there was a need for an invasion of a Middle East country. The plan called for 400,000 ground troops to win the war and keep law and order. But Donald Rumsfeld only sent 150,000. He had made his money downsizing companies to make them more profitable. He was a corporate turn-around expert, fired employees and made the ones that were left to work harder to fill the void, a recipe for disaster. This is what he did to the military personnel who invaded Iraq. Additionally, the troops were poorly equipped for the challenge.
The U.S.–Iraq Status of Forces Agreement officially called: Agreement Between the United States of America and the Republic of Iraq On the Withdrawal of United States Forces from Iraq and the Organization of Their Activities during Their Temporary Presence in Iraq, was a status of forces agreement, SOFA, between Iraq and the United States, signed by President George W. Bush in 2008. It established that U.S. combat forces would withdraw from Iraqi cities by June 30, 2009, and all U.S. combat forces will be completely out of Iraq by December 31, 2011
When Maliki ordered the U.S. military personnel to leave the civil war started between the Sunni, Shia Muslims and the Kurdistanis in northern Iraq, all because Maliki, a Shia, did not want to include the Sunnis or Kurds in his government. It was called revenge.
Sunnis and Kurds now had no say in the governance and had no land to call their own. Land for Sunnis in Iraq was first taken by a Jordanian and a member of al-Qaeda by the name of Ahmad Fadil al-Khalayleh. He would be known later as Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. So, Zarqawi turned an insurgency against American troops into a Shia-Sunni civil war. He was killed by an American air strike in his hideout. After his death in 2006 by U.S. forces, another leader would come to the fore.
After the death of Zarqawi, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi became the leader of ISIS in Iraq as a result of Bush’s illegal activity. Baghdadi called the territory he and his members controlled in Iraq the Islamic State (IS) / Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) / Islamic State of Iraq (ISIS or ISIL, IS). The territory was also known as Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham ISIS, Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, al-Qaeda in Iraq, Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), Islamic State, Daesh/Daish is an active group formed in 2014. An honest name would have been Gangsterland.
Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham. Al-Sham, the Levant, meant all of the lands of the eastern Mediterranean, including southern Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Israel. After that, the name ISIS, ISIL or Daish/Daesh would all mean the same.
Baghdadi and the members of ISIS, ISIL or Daish, are using them as front organizations for an organized-criminal enterprise. It is only about the money they can make from the territories they control. Baghdadi and his followers are not Muslims, but they are gangsters. They are corrupt and sadistic criminals who kill with pleasure. They are gangsters pretending to be Muslims to give them some slight credibility among the unaware. The Koran does not condone in any verse the murder of innocent children, women, and men, kidnapping, raping of young girls and gang raping young girls and women. They rob banks and run a protection racket forcing the merchants to pay the members bribes to stay in business. The cowards use innocent men, women, and children as human shields when they are attacked. The Koran does not justify any of these types of brutality.
They are involved in cruel human trafficking. The gangsters have reduced women to subhumans. Now that they are property, they have no rights.
The gangsters tax, oppress and repress the Iraqi victims-citizens of the cities, towns and villages they control by fear. The Iraqis do not want to be ruled by ISIS. They kill people with impunity and at will. There is a successful underground working in Iraq to free families from their terrorists’ captors.
ISIS has moved some of its fighters into Syria to try and replace the al-Nusra Front, which is fighting the Bashar al-Assad regime of genociders. The uprising had started in Syria because there had been a drought for four years. The farmers who were suffering approached Assad and asked for help. He refused to help them in any way. Then, the protests started, next the civil war started and is still going on and will continue until like all civil wars one side disarms the other side.
I thought about the most important thing in life and decided it was money. My reasoning I thought was quite simple. ISIS is just another paid advertiser on CNN, ABC, CBS, and NBC. The pharmaceutical companies are in the first position as to advertising dollars spent on television, and then comes the automobile companies and in the third position is ISIS. Otherwise, why would these media companies give ISIS what they want, worldwide publicity as a recruiting tool? Don’t the CEOs who allow ISIS to advertise on their channels realize they are conspiring with the terrorists to recruit new fodder? Fodder is described as non-Arabs who join ISIS. Would the channels go bankrupt if they didn’t allow ISIS to advertise on their channels?
The question to be asked is: Why do CNN, ABC, Al Jazeera, CBS, Fox News and NBC give ISIS all of this television time? Must have something to do with ratings which have something to do with the number of viewers which has something to do with how much money the organizations can charge for advertising.
Would it not be better if the ISIS participation in the bombings and shootings in Paris were not broadcast? Would it not be better if ISIS and other terrorist groups and their activities were not mentioned at all as if they did not exist? By publicizing their activities, ISIS is getting what it wants. Why not deprive them of what they want, advertising? Does it have anything to do with the money?
It must be obvious to any aware thinking person that ISIS is paying the networks and other organizations to keep their horrific activities before the public worldwide.
The terrorists are no better or worse than the criminal CEOs on Wall Street in the banks and financial services industry which caused the 2008-2009 recession by their greed — money.
I considered good health, love, friendship, and loyalty, but I continued to return to money. There was no other explanation for the publicity given to terrorist’s organizations worldwide. And CNN appeared to me to be the worst offender. The repetition, the filler with speculation instead of just hard facts is the sure indication ISIS is one of their sponsors. Again, what benefit is it to anyone except ISIS and their terrorists’ affiliates?
This advertising campaign of ISIS allowed the delusional and misguided to realize they can join ISIS or other terrorist’s organizations and take out their rage by killing and torturing anyone they please with impunity.
So why did CNN and the networks become an employment agency for ISIS? For the members of ISIS do get paid better than joining Al Qaeda.
On 29 June 2014, ISIL announced the establishment of a worldwide caliphate. Al-Baghdadi was named its Caliph, to be known as “Caliph Ibrahim”, and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant was renamed the Islamic State, IS, instead of Gangsterland.
You may ask for a good reason when will this end? The answer is the Caliphate must endure and expand for it to exist and for Al-Baghdadi to remain the Caliph. The only way to defeat an idea is with a better idea. Here, there is no better idea for those whom wish to live in ninth-century Islam.
Isis will be physically defeated in Iraq and Syria. But they will flee to another land or place and re-establish themselves. Their ideology cannot be defeated, unless a better idea can be presented to the terrorists and they accept it.
The Sunni countries in the Middle East led by Saudi Arabia need to put together a coalition of ground troops, enter Iraq, join forces with the Iraqi army and defeat and destroy the Baghdadi criminal enterprise and its members. The true Sunni Muslims and Kurdistanis of Iraq need to live in peace and freedom. They must be included in the ruling of the Iraq government.
