Newscast Media WASHINGTON—From the very beginning, newly-elected Syrian
President Bashar Assad warned the West about arming terrorists in the region. Assad
was ignored. More and more weapons were funneled into Syria through Turkey. The
ammunition that was once in the hands of Libya’s Gaddafi suddenly disappeared, yet
no one raised questions as to what happened to those weapons.
The terrorist groups that banded together called “Friends of Syria” realized Assad was
too tough an adversary to dislodge, so they came up with Plan-B. They turned their
eyes to Syria’s neighbor Iraq, and while the West continued supporting the group
financially, little did the West know that the Islamists would turn against their
masters. They had no problem biting the hand that fed and sustained them.
This week the West woke up to news that al-Qaeda terrorists are not just a group, it
is a full-blown army that has put Iraq under siege. The group calls itself Sunni
fundamentalist Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and wants to establish
Sharia Law in the region.
The West had no foresight to see that the groups they were supporting would betray
them, and terrorize innocent citizens. Assad’s words have now become a
self-fulfilling prophecy and the whole world now realizes the Islamists were never
interested in peace, they only wanted to spread their pernicious ideology as Assad
had warned. This is not Assad’s problem though. He has earned their respect and
they are terrified of him. Assad has killed more terrorists than perhaps anyone in the
history of mankind, and the ISIL has decided Syria is an adversary they do not want
to face anymore. Their adversary understands them better than they do him or
Everybody knows Assad hates terrorists. Had the West not supported al-Qaeda, the
crisis that is happening in Iraq would have been avoided. All the gains from Iraqi War
I and Iraqi War II have been erased.
In Mosul, people are fleeing for their lives. “The situation [in Mosul] is very, very bad,”
a woman told Reuters on June 12 in Irbil. “We couldn’t sleep at night. All night long,
we heard gunshots, mortar shells, and airplanes flying over. We couldn’t sleep. The
power went off and there was no water, so we fled Mosul.”
The State Department on June 11 said, “On June 11, the militants captured the city
of Tikrit, just a day after Iraqi security forces gave up their defense of the country’s
second largest city, Mosul, in the country’s Sunni heartland,” in a statement
U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called on the international community to unite
behind the Baghdad government.
“I’m urging that the whole international community must be united. We have to show
strong international commitment of solidarity to all these terrorists,” Ban said.
Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said, “The events in Iraq illustrate the total
failure of the adventure involving the United States and Britain.”
According to Al Manar, Lavrov further said, “The unity of Iraq is at risk. We are very
worried by what is happening in Iraq. We warned long ago that the adventure
undertaken by the Americans and the British would not end well.
“We stand in solidarity with the Iraqi leadership, the Iraqi people who should restore
peace and security in their country but actions of our Western partners cause a huge
amount of questions.”
As of this writing, the Islamists are marching toward Baghdad. They say they want to
turn it to a Caliphate–there is a score to settle. Warning! Graphic pictures of
The West is now forced to consider the only two entities that can completely
obliterate the enemy due to their strategic geographical locations. Iran, located to
the East of Iraq, and Syria on the West. The enemy is sandwiched between these
two countries, and with Iraqi national forces in the East, they could close in on the
enemy and eliminate it once and for all.
The attack on the airport in Kabul, Afghanistan was a warning shot…the subsequent
invasion of Iraq by the Islamists is the aftermath.
