AMERICA: ‘ US Funding IS Terror on Pakistani Soil ‘

Last month, Pakistan shared crucial information with top US officials, including Mr. John Kerry on the matter of international funding for ISIS, Pakistan group on what is actually my home soil. The Washington financing of terrorism is nothing new, but these startling revelations come at point in time, when Obama and most of the first world are actually contemplating a full-scale global war against Islam.

Among the details shared with US include the mandate of a Pakistani-Syrian, Yousaf al Salafi, an IS operative and highly dangerous suspect.  Al- Salafi is alleged to have been arrested last year in Lahore, Pakistan, but this information was kept confidential throughout this time. And during the investigations, “Yousaf al Salafi revealed that he was getting funding – routed through America – to run the organization in Pakistan and recruit young people to fight in Syria.” 

Al Salafi also allegedly confessed to recruiting jihadists for the Syrian jihad and has received about $600 per person. It wad further revealed that he had operated inside Pakistan with the help of a local accomplice, who was reportedly the Imam of a mosque. It also emerged that Al Salafi entered Pakistan through Turkey five months ago. Earlier, it was reported that he crossed into Turkey from Syria and was caught there. However, he managed to escape from Turkey and reached Pakistan to establish IS in the region.

Also citizens from different countries including Afghanistan, India, Libya and Pakistan itself are being recruited by IS to fight in Syria. Interestingly, the IS is also paid from a torrent of fighters, arms, equipment, and cash flowing from NATO territory in Turkey.

The exact nature of the monetary funding sources still remains to be seen and these matter has been discussed among the top officials of both Pakistan and USA recently with US Secretary of State John Kerry on his recent trip to Islamabad.

With the growing ISIS terror on global front, local media has discussed the rising influence of Islamic State and the several incidents in cities of Lahore and Multan where Islamic State flags and graffiti were seen publicly. While Pakistani authorities indicate that local militants including Pakistan Taliban TTP would be opposing the Islamic State, it does nothing for the fact that IS operatives like Al Salafi and other are becoming successful due to foreign funding.

The IS terror is a major problem that the Muslim world must urgently address for our own sakes, and on the pother hand the West can help by stopping its historical pandering and support of Middle East’s Wahabi tyrants who spread this extremism that is destroying countless countries, including Pakistan.

Al Salafi’s arrest is a lip service, catching and eliminating an occasional militant leader in raids, drone and special-forces strikes is not really the solution.

The fight against ISIS and Al-Qaeda is deeply ironic since these organizations were created and are sustained, in part, by Western funds that are handed over to the Saudis and Gulf Arab nations for oil purchase. And if we continue down this road, it may well be a never-ending war.

The House of Saud is working against the best interests of the Muslim world, it has helped to unleash its Wahabi agenda and is blatant support for the Salafi movements that are a huge obstacle for a poor and fragile Muslim state like Pakistan, and for Muslim communities worldwide.

As US had to dispel the impression that it is financing the group for its own interests, continues to portray itself as “at war with ISIS,” going as far as bombing Syrian territory while claiming it must now train more militants to topple Assad’s regime, but on other hand, it’s ineffectual in stopping the funding of these organisations, which is being routed through the US  from its own borders into the hands of its implacable enemy. This also reminds of a similar conundrum in Charlie Hedbo’s free France that is participating in military operations aimed at both toppling the Syrian government and allegedly fighting ISIS – yet claims to be unable to stop thousands of its own citizens from leaving its borders to join ISIS’ ranks.

It will be interesting to note if US reacts to the Pakistani leaks on Yousaf Al Salafi and the rise of IS terror, however it seems unlikely. The unfortunate probability is that the farce of War on Terror” will continue, with the US propping up ISIS, using it both as impetus to funnel more cash and weapons that shall intentionally and intentionally – end up in ISIS’ hands.Point to ponder?

ISIS: Who Will Do The Dirty Work?

Do you listen or watch the news?  If so then the war on ISIS is going as planned and the Coalition is having great successes and few misses……if you are one of those people then you are sadly mistaken and maybe you should pull your head out of your butt and face reality.

There is NO one in the global community that believes a word of what Kerry and Obama has to say….the only ones that will play along are the ones that are getting their fair share of the goodies to fight ISIS.

I know that the Coalition has won the battle for Kobane…..and I know the media wants the world to believe that ISIS is bleeding from all the air-strikes….if all that is true then someone show me where ISIS is reeling……pick a spot and let it fly!

Now if the US is unwilling to do what is necessary…..then who?

Recently Jordan stepped up in retaliation for the death of their pilot……but how long will that last?  Plus Jordan, while a massive army is not capable of fighting ISIS on their own.  They can contribute but they cannot lead.

Now on to the monarchies of the Arabian Peninsula….one is ass deep in the extreme form of Islam and will be worthless for they will play both sides against the middle…..and another who does more whining that action to fight the bad guy……and the South end of the land is dealing with turmoil and rebellion…they will be useless.

How about our so-called western allies?  UK will only be a token force….so will Germany and France……Canada….well its Canada.  They will do as little as possible to fulfill any agreements made in the past.

Even the Arab League has weighed into the situation…..they offered up a statement concerning ISIS………Arab League foreign ministers agreed to take all necessary measures to confront ISIS and cooperate with international, regional and national efforts to combat militants who have overrun swathes of Iraq and Syria.

The Arab League also endorsed in the closing statement of its meeting in Cairo a U.N. Security Council resolution passed last month calling on member states to “act to suppress the flow of foreign fighters, financing and other support to Islamist extremist groups in Iraq and Syria.

Good statement.…but this group has all the authority of me over my daughter…..NONE!  They are a non-player in this drama.

Who does that leave to do the heavy lifting?

It boils down to the countries most effected by ISIS…..Turkey, Iraq and Syria.  Let’s start with Syria……the clarity of mission here is about as clear as a glass of mud.  There is NO one capable of defining this situation accurately.

That leaves Iraq and Turkey……we will tart with Turkey…..they have the capability to take on ISIS….they have a good air force and a large army…..just do not possess the resolve.  Turkey has a Kurd problem so anything they do to help the Kurds be successful will be seen as a weakness at home.  Now Iraq….they should be the most concerned and the most active, after all it is their country that is being ripped apart..  The problem there is in-fighting……….sect against sect……….ethnic group against ethnic group……..government against the population.

They will need more time and training to be capable of fighting the good fight.

We could always call in a favor from Kuwait for the Gulf War….but they would be worthless and probably do not care as long as the royal family keeps their bucks.

All that out of the way…..brings us back to the original question……Who will do the dirty work?

After looking at the situation and doing a little fundamental analysis the only answer is….……...U S of A!

A case could be made that we, America,  screwed the pooch in Iraq and we should clean up our mess.  Plus we are the only entity capable of inflicting the amount of pain on ISIS to claim it defeated………but then someone needs to define “defeated”.

Best estimate unless something drastic happens is that this will continue as is until there is a new prez in DC.  Why?  Obama ran as an anti-war candidate and h will not want to ruin his legacy.  Keep in mind decisions are made by leaders with their own agenda and the people play little part in their decisions.

In conclusion, the dirty work will be done by the US….just not right now….after all the Military-Industrial Complex has not decided how all this situation should play out.  When they decide…..so will the president.
