The war on terror provides the perfect alibi for the US to interfere in the internal affairs of other countries and to establish its military presence. Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, etc. are current examples. That is what makes the entire paradigm extremely worrisome — Sri Lanka’s terrorism problem, alleged nexus between Sri Lankan and Indian (especially Kashmiri) militants.
Although there is no longer any reason for the jihadists to split themselves between Al-Qaeda and Daesh, the two organisations continue their war in the Greater Middle East. Paradoxically, it is now Al-Qaïda which runs a pseudo-State, the governorate of Idlib, and Daesh which organises attacks far from the battle-fields, in the Congo and Sri Lanka.
The new revelations contradict years of a conventional narrative which has portrayed ISIS as a spontaneous movement erupting without significant state support.Turkey is hardly the only state which Western intelligence agencies knew were financing ISIS — others include Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
The Destabilisation Of Algeria: The Influx Of New Refugees To Europe And A Threat To Its Energy Security
The destabilisation of Algeria will undoubtedly cause problems for Europe. Besides the inevitable influx of new refugees, Europe could also face a threat to its energy security, given that Algeria provides a third of the gas consumed in Europe and as much as half of the gas consumed in Spain.
Has President Donald Trump abandoned the idea of transforming US politics? Over the last two months, his administration seems to have restructured AfriCom, CentCom and SouthCom, that have been authorised to join the battle against Chinese projects on the African continent, divide the Greater Middle East between Arabs and Persians, and destroy the State structures of the Caribbean Basin. These new missions are accompanied by a return of the neo-conservatives.
Two Daesh suicide attacks recently took place in Syria over a period of just five days, suggesting that they’re part of a coordinated strategy being employed by the terrorists against the withdrawing American troops. The “qui bono” principle has led to many observers suspecting that the whole point is to […]
It’s a messy, though typical picture. US President Donald Trump wants to pull out forces in Syria. When announced in December, jaws drooped and sharp intakes of breath were registered through the Washington establishment. Members of the military industrial complex were none too pleased. The President had seemingly made his […]
It is a masterstroke by the Saudi regime to assume the role of peacemaker at a juncture when its international image is severely damaged following the brutal killing of Jamal Khashoggi. Ironically, Saudis are undertaking a rescue act to help the US wriggle out of a 17-year old war.
Why Christianne Boudreau, born in Toronto, the mother of a young Damian Clairmont who had been indoctrinated and recruited to join a terrorist group in Syria, is forced by the Canadian government to surrender her Canadian passport. Why is Canada denying this woman her right to travel, guaranteed to all citizens under the Canadian Charter?
The Situation Is Worsening In Syrian South As US Tries To Defend Terrorists While Israel To Strike A Deal With Russia
The US decides to create ‘the southern zone’ having far-reaching benefits, in fact. Apparently, by providing the radicals with money and weapons and by turning a blind eye to ISIS expansion the White House all the while has been preparing a foothold to attack Damascus located less than 100 kilometers from this zone of de-escalation.
If the U.S. does not keep its promises and continue supporting the Kurds, the Turkey’s contract for the purchase of Russia’s S-400 will remain in force.
