Before Adam Garrie’s piece on Iran declaring the end of ISIS, the editor of The Ugly Truth provides us with vital context for this announcement:
Ed note–there is no underscoring how important this is, as well as how devastating it is for Israel’s goals in the region and especially for Netanyahu.
That ISIS was a creation of Israel, the US, the UK, etc is not a matter up for debate or speculation. In the aftermath of George Bush’s disastrous invasion and destruction of Iraq, resulting not only in millions of dead people (whose images were seen all over the world via the internet every day) but as well the scores of dead servicemen and women returning to the US, the entire ‘war on terror’ schtick was revealed for the lie it was concerning Iraq being a ‘cakewalk’ for the mighty and invincible American military machine.
So, ‘plan B’ had to be adopted, and VOILA–the ‘Arab Spring’ and with it, its inevitable offshoots, ISIL and ISIS who would then be tasked with doing the dirty work which Israel would have preferred be done directly by American GIs but which–due to the political fallout associated with all of this–obviously had to be reconfigured and recalibrated for public consumption.
Therefore, instead of the American military machine going about the Middle East and engaging in regime change per Netanyahu’s orders and per the ‘recommendations’ of the 1996 Clean Break document, the plan was to use all the murder and mayhem created by the aforementioned ISIL and ISIS as the launching pad for utilizing American military might in a never-ending campaign in ‘defeating’ a monster of Israel and America’s creation and in the process, creating so much political instability that one by one, all those problematic governments, including those in Syria, Iran, Lebanon, etc. all came tumbling down, only to be rebuilt in such a way that Israel found acceptable.
And what we have now instead is the tables being turned completely upside down and Israel’s plan being used against her in strengthening her enemies, namely Iran, Syria, Russia, and Hezbollah.
And thus it now becomes very clear why there is this sudden ‘bromance’ between Netanyahu and the Saudis, and particularly in the aftermath of Trump being elected and his (stated) intention of bringing about an end to American involvement in all of these wars for Israel that are not in America’s interests.
So, in the coming days, weeks, and months, look for a ‘new and improved’ form of ‘Islamic’ terrorism to emerge now that ISIS has been defeated and look for the Saudis to take the lead in running the destabilization campaign that Iran, Syria, Russia and Hezbollah have now effectively defeated and destroyed.
CONFIRMED: Iran declares victory over ISIS
All of the major powers in the anti-terrorist Resistance have declared the defeat of ISIS in the Middle East.
Iran’s most important military, political and spiritual figures have all used addresses to declare the military defeat of ISIS/Daesh, while offering congratulations to their allies in the fight including Iraq, Syria, Hezbollah and other forces within Lebanon.
First, Major General Qassem Soleimani of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps hailed a “great victory” over the ISIS Takfiri terrorist group. General Soleimani congratulated Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei (pictured) for his leadership while praising the armed forces of Syria, Iraq and the Lebanese Islamic Resistance movement, Hezbollah. General Soleimani has played a vital role in mobilising anti-terrorist forces in both Syria and Iraq.
Later, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani stated that ISIS is largely defeated, while slamming the supporters of Takfiri terrorist groups. He stated,
“We never imagined that the criminals, supported by the West, Americans and the evil Zionist regime, would commit such crimes in the 21st century”.
Moments ago Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei stated that a great victory had been achieved over ISIS which he described as a force bent on sowing divisions and waging civil war in the Middle East. Iran’s Supreme Leader said that this movement has failed in spite of attempts by the United States and its allies to insure a Takfiri victory.
With Russia, Syria and Hezbollah all coming out with similar statements, it is clear that tomorrow’s trilateral conference in Sochi between the Presidents of Russia, Iran and Turkey will be the true political and diplomatic beginning of an effectively post-conflict peace process.
Today, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad met with Russian President Vladimir Putin where the two exchanged warm words regarding the defeat of ISIS in Syria.
