Here is a very interesting and informative video detailing the US role in funding, arming and training the so-called “Islamic State,” also known as ISIS or ISIL. While the video provides compelling evidence of US backing of ISIS and its affiliates to overthrow the governments of both Libya and Syria, it fails to diagnose the true motivation of the US government’s policies in this regard.
Overthrowing the Syrian government is first and foremost an Israeli concern, outlined brazenly in Israeli geopolitical documents dating back to the 1980s. Destabilizing the Middle East is first and foremost an Israeli stratagem, not a traditional US imperial one which sought stability in the region to procure cheap resources from dictators.
The “realist” faction of the US establishment is not on board with the present approach of the Obama administration. Washington’s pursuit of regime change in Syria, Libya, Iraq and Iran is primarily motivated by Israel’s interests. The Zionist neocons are the principal driving force in Washington today, and have been since the twin towers were knocked down on 9/11.
Left-wing commentators are not reliable analysts of US foreign policy vis-a-vis the Middle East. Left dogma prohibits leftists from emphasizing ethnicity in their analysis of geopolitics. The fact is that most of the neocon warmongers in Washington are pro-Israel Jews. Leftists do backflips to get around this reality, oftentimes overemphasizing the role of the few token Sabbath Goys in the neoconservative movement such as Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld.
That may be the case with this video maker, who, for perhaps ideological or monetary reasons, has decided to misdiagnose the motivations behind US actions in the Middle East at the present time.
