US-Supported ISIS Behind Kabul Blasts?
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
Franklin Roosevelt reportedly called Nicaraguan despot Anastasio Somoza “a son of a bitch, but he’s our son of a bitch.”
A quote attributed to Harry Truman called him “a bastard, but he’s our bastard.”
FDR’s secretary of state Cordell Hull reportedly said much the same thing about Dominican Republic dictator Rafael Trujillo.
The above applies to ISIS, al Qaeda and likeminded jihadists — serving as US-dominated NATO proxy foot soldiers in nations where deployed.
Their mission is all about advancing US imperial aims, the human toll of no consequence.
On Thursday, multiple blasts occurred outside Kabul’s airport.
Over 100 deaths were reported, many others injured, mostly civilians.
According to the Taliban, 28 of its members were killed.
Warning that the toll may rise, US sources reported the deaths of 13 Pentagon troops, including 11 marines, another 18 wounded.
AP News said multiple blasts occurred “after Western officials warned of a major attack, urging people to leave the airport…advice…largely unheeded.”
On its Amaq news channel, US-supported ISIS claimed responsibility for the blasts, suggesting more of the same ahead.
Were they orchestrated and directed by their US handlers with continuing endless war on Afghanistan and its people in mind?
According to a spokesman for Italian charity Emergency hospitals in Afghanistan, dozens of patients arrived for treatment, at least 10 DOA.
Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said one or more blasts targeted their equipment, blaming the US for wanting it destroyed no matter the human toll.
Citing an unnamed source on Thursday, Fox News reported that “some Americans stranded in Afghanistan will likely be left behind after Thursday’s bombings,” adding:
“(H)undreds” of ISIS jihadists remain near Kabul’s airport. Their presence suggests more (made-in-the-USA?) attacks to come.
The Biden regime faces an August 31 deadline to withdraw its forces, US citizens, and Afghans who aided years of occupation with documents to leave.
Hidden out of sight who knows where, dementia Joe is out of touch with affairs of state.
Reading scripted lines, his powerless know-nothing double indicated involvement of ISIS in Thursday’s blasts.
Nothing is ever admitted by US/Western officials of their use as imperial foot soldiers.
It includes Pentagon, CIA recruiting, funding, arming, training and directing their fighters — for carrying out missions as instructed.
Claiming hegemon USA won’t “be deterred by terrorists (sic),” Biden’s double left their use by US/Western dark forces in the Middle East, Central Asia and elsewhere unexplained.
Like always when hauled out by handlers to deliver scripted remarks, his ignorance is on display, aware only of what he’s told to say.
Notably when allowed to take questions, most often he mumbles, bumbles, stumbles and stammers in responding — a pathetic display, why his off-script remarks are limited.
Instead of exposing and denouncing the charade, establishment media are complicit for going along with an illegitimate regime — represented by a dementia Joe lookalike dummy.
Symbolic of an empire in decline, its arrival in history’s dustbin was likely hastened by lost wars in Afghanistan and elsewhere, forever ones continuing by hot and other means going nowhere, multi-trillions of dollars poured down a black hole, continued money printing madness with no end of it in prospect, along with war on public health at home and abroad with intent to destroy it.
Is the above reality how the epitaph of America’s empire will read one day — or similar words of explanation?
