There were 3 previous instances where the international media reported Baghdadi’s death, and the US military gave Baghdadi a burial at sea, making it impossible to prove that he was executed. It seems that reporting the killing of hated enemies is useful to build popularity among the folks back home.
Brian Kilmeade, a pro-war neocon, argues for US troops to remain in Syria to ‘stop the next 9/11 attack’. Meanwhile, Senator Rand Paul points out that 99% of ISIS has been eradicated and that Syria should be able to finish the job. He says the US has been in Afghanistan for 17 years, and Islam needs to police Islam.
The controversial White Helmets who have been involved in staged “gas attacks” in Syria that were used as a pretext for attacking Assad, are fleeing the country and will reportedly move to Western countries. Their exodus coincides with Trump’s talks with Putin where it appears that they both promised Israel they would contain Iran’s influence in Syria.
Syria: President Assad’s army objects to the continued presence of the US military and vows to drive it out. It says the US is training anti-government militias in the interest of protecting Israel. American neocon, General McMaster, however, says that 80% of Syria’s army is made up of Iranian proxies.
At least two protesters are dead as a result of the wave of civil disobedience that has gripped Iran since last Thursday against soaring food prices and unemployment. The state television station reported that neither police nor military have fired any shots, yet two men are dead. They blame ‘Takfiri’ foreigners, referring to Sunni fundamentalists such as ISIS and the Al Nusra Front, insinuating these were false-flag killings.
Video shows convoys carrying 3,500 ISIS fighters and their families being transported out of Raqqa, along with 10 trucks loaded with weapons, just before the city was fully recaptured by Syrian forces. The trucks were hired by the Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces that has been supported by the US. The deal for a safe departure was made with the knowledge of the US-led coalition. The militants and mercenaries were transported deeper into Syria and to Turkey.
This study, which was scientific, exhaustive, and irrefutable, confirms previous reports that the US and its allies have been the principle supplier of weapons to ISIS. In other words, ISIS is the creation of the US Deep State. In response to recent public awareness of this fact, President Trump ended the CIA weapons program, but there has been no discussion about preventing the military from taking over where the CIA leaves off. [The Deep State remains, so we expect the support of ISIS or other terrorist groups to continue. Why? Because you can’t fight a war on terrorism unless you have terrorists.]
