West Attempts to Trigger Clash of Civilizations

Al Qaeda & Islamophobic bigots working in tandem exploiting fear and ignorance.

In France where people are sent to jail for "Holocaust denial,"
considered by law a religious hate crime, it seems strange then that
well-timed, raunchy cartoons designed solely to insult and inflame hate
against and amongst Muslims worldwide would be defended vigorously by
French politicians who claim, according to the Christian Science Monitor, that "freedom of the press should not be infringed."

With Neo-Conservative warmongers behind a recent inflammatory film titled, The Innocence of Muslims,
and their counterparts amongst radical sectarian extremists leading
violent protests across the Middle East and North Africa, it would
almost seem as if the publication of insulting cartoons by a French
paper, "Charlie Hebdo," was part of a grander strategy to create a
manufactured conflict between Islam and the West, setting the stage for
more overt military operations to take over faltering covert operations
in Syria and beyond.

France (and the West) Are Playing Both Sides

It is a fact that France itself has provided state sponsorship of
terrorism from Libya to Syria, arming, funding, and politically backing
the very groups taking to the streets, burning Western consulates, and
killing bystanders, diplomats, and security forces alike. France had armed, trained, funded, and provided air support for the UN-listed terrorist outfit, the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) last year in Libya, in their bid to overthrow the government of Muammar Qaddafi.

terrorist organization, the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG),
addressing fellow terrorists in Syria. Harati is now commanding a Libyan
brigade operating inside of Syria attempting to destroy the Syrian
government and subjugate the Syrian population. Traditionally, this is
known as "foreign invasion." France is one of a handful of nations
currently leading state-sponsorship of terrorist groups like LIFG in

LIFG had merged officially with Al Qaeda, according to a US Army West
Point Combating Terrorism Center report in 2007, long before the French
knowingly aided and abetted these terrorists in their bid to overthrow
and overrun Libya. Currently, the government of France is funding and
arming these very same terrorists, who promptly transferred weapons,
cash, and fighters to Syria to begin terror operations there.

The report titled, "Al-Qa'ida's Foreign Fighters in Iraq" stated specifically:

The apparent surge in Libyan recruits
traveling to Iraq may be linked the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group’s
(LIFG) increasingly cooperative relationship with al‐Qa’ida, which
culminated in the LIFG officially joining al‐Qa’ida on November 3, 2007.
(page 9, .pdf)France
had recently announced its intentions to overtly arm these terror
groups operating in Syria, now exposed by Human Rights Watch as carrying
out systematic and widespread atrocities against the Syrian population.
The Hindu, in their article, "France to fund opposition in Syria," reported:

Reuters quoted a 'diplomatic source' as saying
France had started supporting parts of Syria that are apparently being
controlled by the armed opposition. More alarmingly, the report pointed
out that Paris was considering supplying heavy artillery to
anti-government fighters — a move that would harden the possibility of a
full-blown civil war in the country."Now France, through its media, and
the complicity of its politicians' tacit support, is providing their
new terrorist allies with something else - a causus belli for
confrontation with the West to reinsert in the public's mind the
adversarial plot device needed to introduce more direct military
intervention where the covert support of listed-terrorist groups has now
seemingly failed.
The Lie We Are Expected to Believe

What we are now expected to believe is that France, the US, UK, and
other nations were benevolently, and unwittingly helping these groups
into power, only to be betrayed by extremists.

In reality, the nature of these militant groups was known years in
advance, these groups specifically chosen to lead the violent subversion
of Western targets across the Arab World - with the possibility of
sectarian genocide and significant blowback acknowledged as an
acceptable risk.

In 2007, an article by Seymour Hersh published in the New Yorker titled, "The Redirection" admitted that:

To undermine Iran, which is predominantly
Shiite, the Bush Administration has decided, in effect, to reconfigure
its priorities in the Middle East. In Lebanon, the Administration has
coöperated with Saudi Arabia’s government, which is Sunni, in
clandestine operations that are intended to weaken Hezbollah, the Shiite
organization that is backed by Iran. The U.S. has also taken part in
clandestine operations aimed at Iran and its ally Syria. A by-product of
these activities has been the bolstering of Sunni extremist groups that
espouse a militant vision of Islam and are hostile to America and
sympathetic to Al Qaeda. -The Redirection, Seymour Hersh (2007)
Hersh's report would also include:

the Saudi government, with Washington’s
approval, would provide funds and logistical aid to weaken the
government of President Bashir Assad, of Syria. The Israelis believe
that putting such pressure on the Assad government will make it more
conciliatory and open to negotiations. -The Redirection, Seymour Hersh (2007)
the West, including the complicit regimes of Nicolas Sarkozy and now
François Hollande, knowingly funded terrorists. Hersh's report admits
that all parties involved even in 2007 knew full well the potential
dangers involved in funding terrorist groups but believed these forces
could be controlled:

...[Saudi Arabia's] Bandar and other Saudis
have assured the White House that they will keep a very close eye on the
religious fundamentalists. Their message to us was ‘We’ve created this
movement, and we can control it.’ It’s not that we don’t want the
Salafis to throw bombs; it’s who they throw them at—Hezbollah, Moqtada
al-Sadr, Iran, and at the Syrians, if they continue to work with
Hezbollah and Iran. -The Redirection, Seymour Hersh (2007)
the West to feign that evidence Al Qaeda is now overrunning the Middle
East is somehow an unintended consequence, when officials in 2007 were
on record already implementing such a policy is indeed a bold lie. To
help sell that lie, the West is calling on its Neo-Conservative
factions, and in particular, dusting off their Islamophobia brigades led by the likes of Daniel Pipes, a member of the Bush administration,
a Project for a New American Century (PNAC) signatory, and a chief
proponent for war with Syria and Iran, as well as lesser demagogues such
as Robert Spencer, Pamella Geller, and David Horowitz.

The creation of a sectarian extremist front to undermine and destroy the
governments of Syria and Iran began under Bush in 2007 - Syria and Iran
being the specific targets Neo-Cons like Pipes have ceaselessly
advocated war with. That Pipes and his compatriots are now claiming the rise of this terrorist front
they themselves helped create is somehow the result of a "pro-Islam
Obama" is immense propaganda designed for the most impressionable minds.

The Plan: Flip the Script (Again)

In reality, Obama provided left-cover for a singular corporate-financier driven agenda, decided upon decades ago, and part of the reoccurring patterns and themes that define all empires past and present.

It appears that the public is becoming increasingly aware that the US
has just handed the nation of Libya over to sectarian extremists and is
backing brigades of these same terrorists, now operating in Syria.

The operation in Syria seems to have reached a stalemate, with the
further arming and backing of increasingly visible terrorist forces a
politically untenable option.

It appears that the alternative plan is to flip the script once more,
turning Al Qaeda - who began as celebrated freedom fighters battling
Soviets in the mountains of Afghanistan, to reviled terrorists waging a
decade of war on America in Iraq and Afghanistan, to freedom fighters
seeking to oust Qaddafi and President Bashar al-Assad, to once again
back to reviled, embassy attacking, ambassador-killing thugs.

Seemingly fully committed to tipping off a "clash of civilizations," the
ground is being prepared for false flag attacks and preparing public
opinion for more direct military intervention in places like Syria and
Iran. The failures of the last four years of corporate-financier driven
policy is being compartmentalized around Obama and will be flushed with
his presidency either in 2012, or 2016 with the hopes that the agenda
itself will survive and carry on.

An Obama win in 2012 would allow the West to continue funding terrorists
more openly worldwide against the governments of Syria, Iran, and even
Russia and China - blaming it all on "Pro-Islam Obama." A Romney victory
would allow more aggressive, direct military intervention. Either way,
the nations of Syria, Iran, Russia, and China will continue to find
themselves in the firing line of both covert and overt foreign military

The overall agenda is global corporate-financier hegemony, the
destruction of the nation-state, and the primacy of Wall Street-London
dictated "international law" for an "international order"
corporate-financier think-tank policy maker Robert Kagan concedes "serves the needs of the United States and its allies, which constructed it."

By recognizing the singular agenda front-men like Bush, Obama, and Romney cover for, we can expose the corporate-financier special interests
truly dictating Western policy. By understanding that it is
corporate-financier interests, not politicians, that drive these
nefarious, overarching agendas, we can formulate solutions based upon undermining and replacing their power and influence,
rather than becoming absorbed in short-sighted political battles that
ultimately change only the front-men, not the agenda itself.

    It's an interesting article, Irish. A bit one sided about the intentions of the US, France, and UK, or the undiscovered, "corporate-financier". Any thoughts about Russia, China, India..? Not much happens in the West without some sort of offset from the East.
  • irish Will on... 2012/10/02 16:48:27
    they will push back as they usually do.

    So you don't think any of them have financially influenced one side or the other to this point?
  • irish Will on... 2012/10/03 14:19:23
    i am sure they have.

    Then why talk about it as if it is only the US causing issues?
  • irish Will on... 2012/10/03 14:27:27
    because the u.s. is deliberately arming the so called "rebels". when we know they are mercenaries and are NOT syrians. just as they were NOT libyans when they were in libya. they are the same subversives that the u.s. claims to be fighting the phony war on terror against. big difference. the u.s is trying to force yet another regime change. russia and china want it to be left alone.

    I suppose there are many opinions on the 2 sides involved. In the beginning when Assad was wiping out villages, that was ok? I don't believe there is a good guy vs bad guy on this one. Neither would be my option.
  • irish Will on... 2012/10/03 15:22:35
    assad was doing no such thing! thats the usual propaganda. if you follow these things,they always claim the same thing. it was saddam,it was gaddafi and now its assad. please! the script is too obvious!
    and the script is a lie.

    Sure, but that doesn't mean the otherside are good guys. Things just aren't that simple anymore.

    Washington's war on Syria reflects longstanding policy. It's part of its "greater Middle East" agenda. It's about controlling the entire region's oil, gas and other resources.

    It's about ravaging one country after another to do it. It's to achieve total dominance over MENA (Middle East/North Africa) countries and Central Asia to Russia and China's borders.

    It's about removing all regional rivals before focusing on other areas. It's about unchallenged global hegemony one destroyed country at a time. Imagine what's coming if this insanity isn't stopped.-stephen lendman

    I don't see the end goal in this theory.
  • irish Will on... 2012/10/03 16:47:00
    the end goal is control. if one country controls all the oil , gas,and resources they have all the power,don't they?why do you think china has been quietly traveling about negotiating for natural resources?
  • Will on... irish 2012/10/03 18:37:27
    Will on the road again
    If one country controlled all the oil gas and resources, it would just mean another world war. The theory sounds ok to start with, but has no end game.
  • irish Will on... 2012/10/03 19:22:51
    as it is intended. endless war benefits only a few.
  • Will on... irish 2012/10/03 19:27:39

    Small controlled wars are profitable to some. World wars are not controllable with no guarantee of winning. The theory just doesn't make sense in the long run.
  • irish Will on... 2012/10/03 19:29:15
    its not about winning. its about profits.

    If you don't win the world war, you don't have profits. Just tired of the discussion. I got your points. Just don't agree with them.
