Washington Bears Full Responsibility for Paris Attacks
by Stephen Lendman
The roots of what happened last Friday go back to CIA-recruited Mujahideen fighters battling Afghanistan’s Soviet occupiers. Ronald Reagan called them “the moral equivalent of our founding fathers.”
They’re today’s Taliban, Al Qaeda, ISIS and other US created terrorist groups. A generation ago, GHW Bush’s Under Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz was involved in orchestrating multiple US premeditated Middle East wars to come – to redraw the region under Washington-controlled puppet regimes.
He believed America could use its military might anywhere in the region unimpeded. “(W)e’ve got about five to 10 years to clean out those old Soviet client regimes,” he said.
His doctrine left no ambiguity, stating: “Our first objective is to prevent the re-emergence of a new rival, either on the territory of the former Soviet Union or elsewhere, that poses a threat on the order of that posed formerly by the Soviet Union.”
“This is a dominant consideration underlying the new regional defense strategy and requires that we endeavor to prevent any hostile power from dominating a region whose resources would, under consolidated control, be sufficient to generate global power.”
He laid the groundwork for US imperial wars to follow. The well-documented horrors throughout the Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia to this day need no elaboration.
A previous article said evidence known so far strongly indicates false flag responsibility for last Friday’s Paris attacks – a carefully planned, well orchestrated military operation, requiring expertise garden variety terrorists don’t have.
Most people ignore reality, become easy marks for media hype, proliferating state-sponsored propaganda – including daily New York Times misinformation and Big Lies, its latest claiming
“US warplanes str(uck) ISIS oil trucks in Syria.”
In around 14 months of bombing Syrian targets, zero ISIS sites were hit, infrastructure and government ones only. Why would anyone believe Washington suddenly changed tactics?
The New York Times willfully lied, saying “United States warplanes for the first time attacked hundreds of trucks on Monday that the extremist group has been using to smuggle the crude oil it has been producing in Syria…”
The source: unnamed “American officials.” Trucks ISIS uses are Western and regionally supplied – as well as weapons, training, funding and direction, CIA operatives and US special forces involved, ISIS and other takfiri terrorists used as imperial foot soldiers.
During the G-20 summit in Turkey, Putin said he “provided examples based on our data on the financing of different Islamic State units by private individuals. This money, as we have established, comes from 40 countries and, there are some of the G-20 members among them.”
He’s too discreet to name America, Britain, France, Turkey and Saudi Arabia – as well as non-G-20 member Israel. He continued, adding:
“I’ve shown our colleagues photos taken from space and from aircraft which clearly demonstrate the scale of the illegal trade in oil and petroleum products.”
“The motorcade of refueling vehicles stretched for dozens of kilometers, so that from a height of 4,000 to 5,000 meters, they stretch beyond the horizon” – allowed to proceed free from US aerial attacks.
Putin and Sergey Lavrov stress the importance of a united front against the scourge of terrorism, working cooperatively with Syrian ground forces.
Washington’s agenda complicit with rogue allies is polar opposite – supporting the terrorists it created, using them to advance its imperial interests.
Putin offered to cooperate with America against ISIS and other terrorists groups. He got a written response saying: “We reject your offer” – for obvious reasons.
Why would US neocons want their proxy force destroyed? Putin is too discreet to elaborate. America’s agenda at home and abroad represents pure evil. Advancing it matters most.
Human lives and welfare are expendable, of no consequence. As long as lunatics run the Washington asylum, expect the worst ahead.
Paris terrorism was a well-planned fear-mongering exercise – an effort to enlist public support for the intended horrors to follow.
