ISIL atrocities CLEARLY demonstrate that such provocation of Western delicate sensibilities to the horrors of war (only when the victim looks like THEM) results in a predictable, continuous escalation of media hysteria to keep the US war machine engaged in both Syria and Iraq.
So why would “ISIS” continue such counter-productive provocations, especially adding OSCAR-worthy high production values for “Technical Achievement in a Propaganda Snuff Video”?
Are wars won by repeating counter-productive stupidity? Is that how the Moors conquered Spain? So why continue behavior that provokes ever-increasing retaliation?
Obama was definitely planning to leave Iraq, and insistent NOT to start a war with Syria, and NOT have more boots on the ground. Suddenly, within days of actual troop withdrawals, there are chemical weapons used in Syria, (blamed on Assad, but later proven to be US-supported rebels) and war against Assad is averted ONLY by intervention by Vladimir Putin to dispose of the weapons and eliminate the WMD threat. Less than three weeks after their complete disposal, the
ISIS, IS, ISIL(?) phenomenon is announced… with ample brutality and beheadings, and more beheadings, and now, burning alive caged prisoners of war.
OF COURSE THIS ISN’T a war against Assad (wink)…. just his country, and infrastructure, and multi-ethnic culture: Christians, to Yazidis, to Shias. Against everyone. But strangely, not against the “hated Jews”.
ISIS—the perpetual false flag– appearing wherever it’s needed for US to intervene militarily, or persuade the population that “No one is safe. No one. Not even in the Homeland.” Maybe soon to appear in a political theater near you.
