In a comprehensive analysis of the War on Terror, the origins of Al Qaeda, and the geopolitical landscape, questions are raised about the true intentions behind the War on Terror and its implications for civil liberties and global security. The narrative challenges the manipulation of information, intelligence failures, and the potential for false flag operations to influence public opinion and justify military interventions.

In a related vein, an investigation into the complex web of arms trafficking in the Middle East reveals how weapons purchased by Saudi Arabia ended up in the hands of ISIS fighters. The threat posed by ISIS’ intellectual capital in terms of weapon designs and manufacturing processes is underscored, with particular emphasis on the ease with which these designs can be shared and produced using 3-D printing technology. The expertise of jihadist recruits, particularly engineers, contributes significantly to the proliferation of weapons. The city of Tal Afar, once a bustling urban center, now stands deserted except for military units and militias.

The strategy of the United States and its allies to support rebel groups in Libya and Syria, based on the belief that the enemy of their enemy is their friend, has proven to be unreliable and often counterproductive. Groups empowered by the US and its allies have ended up becoming anti-Western, with some even joining extremist organizations like the Islamic State. The collapse of security during the Arab Spring uprisings allowed these groups to recruit and regroup, using Western support to their advantage.

Meanwhile, recent events in Ukraine have implications for the ongoing conflict between Russia and the West. A statement from the Kremlin admits that Russia cannot allow a state on its borders that intends to take Crimea away from it, signaling an escalation in the conflict. The arrival of troops from France, Germany, and Poland in Cherkassy, south of Kiev, suggests a NATO force and the start of the conflict. A terror attack on a music venue in Moscow, potentially carried out by ISIS operatives imported from Syria and trained by the CIA and MI6 on behalf of the Ukrainian SBU, is seen as a counter-signal to the collapsing battlefield.

In Israel, the three major intelligence organizations, Mossad, Aman (Military Intelligence), and Shin Bet, play crucial roles in monitoring potential threats and conducting foreign espionage. The challenge of identifying the Mossad publicly is discussed, revealing that it is officially known as the Israeli Secret Intelligence Service.

The complexities of geopolitics, the funding of extremist groups, and the difficulty in attributing actions to specific entities due to a lack of evidence are highlighted, stressing the need for critical thinking and journalistic integrity. The content also discusses America’s use of ISIS for various purposes, including attacking enemies in the Middle East, justifying military intervention abroad, and creating a domestic threat to expand surveillance. The historical involvement of the CIA in supporting terrorist groups and its alignment with extremist Islam during the Cold War is also mentioned. The article concludes by stating that American imperialism in the Middle East is the root cause of terrorism and calls for an end to US involvement in the region.
