Watch: How US created ISIS

Who created al-Qaeda and the Taliban? The United States of America (duh). Who created the ISIS? The answer is probably again the same.

The media would, however, like you to believe otherwise. They would tell you the terrorist group that just took responsibility for the dreadful attacks in Paris came into being due to the inaction of the US government. But as US journalist Ben Swann explains in his documentary ‘Truth in media: Origin of ISIS’, the ISIS is a creation of America’s “direct action” and flawed foreign policy that does nothing but destroys countries and societies, making defence contractors rich.

We must not forget that humanity is greater than politics.

Angela Keaten, the founder of Anti-war.com, says, “We destabilised Iraq. That’s entirely the responsibility of the government of the United States. There’s no one else responsible for this. I mean Saddam Hussain’s Iraq was not unstable, it was a functioning country.”

The US, Swann explains, blew Iraq apart, destroyed the government, toppled Saddam Hussain, destroyed infrastructure and above all, left behind a power vacuum, one that would never have existed had Saddam not been overthrown by the US.

This is a historical fact, Daniel McAdams of Ron Paul Institute says, the media just won’t discuss.

Moreover, the US while leaving Iraq left all the weapons behind only to be grabbed by ISIS fighters. In Syria, the US along with other countries in the region funded and supplied the rebel Free Syrian Army with weapons so as to fight President Assad. Ironically, the same rebel fighters went on to join the ISIS.

  • Iraq lifts the ban on international flights to Kurdish airports
  • Prime minister, Haider al-Abadi issues a statement
  • He also talked about security o the airports

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi on Tuesday lifted a ban on international flights to two airports in Erbil and Sulaimaniyah in the semi-autonomous region of Kurdistan.

A statement by his office said Abadi signed a decree to lift the ban after receiving positive response from the Kurdish local authorities “to restore the federal authority in the two airports in accordance with the Constitution of Iraq”.

Abadi made the announcement during his meeting with the officers of the regional Interior Ministry who were working at the two airports, Xinhua news agency cited the statement as saying.

He also said that a new security directorate will be established to protect the airports in the Kurdish region and it will be under command and control of the federal Interior Ministry.

All the regional airports and border crossings will be linked directly to the main control system in Baghdad, similar to what is done in the other Iraqi airports and crossing, the statement said.

He also talked about the security of airports.

The passports and national ID offices and the employees at the airports of Erbil and Sulaimaniyah will also be linked to the federal Interior Ministry, it added.

Tensions rose between Baghdad and the region of Kurdistan after the Kurds held a controversial referendum last September to approve the independence of the Kurdistan region and the disputed areas.

The Iraqi government later imposed the flights ban on the Kurdish region as part of a package of punitive measures that also included blocking all the border crossings outside the federal control.

The ban on international flights on the region’s international airports of Erbil and Sulaimaniyah forced passengers to apply for an Iraqi visa to transit through Baghdad and Basra international airports to go or leave the Kurdish region.

The independence of Kurdistan is opposed not only by the Iraqi central government, but also by other countries as it would threaten the territorial integrity of Iraq and undermine the fight against the terror group Islamic State.

Iraq’s neighbouring countries, especially Turkey, Iran and Syria, fear that the Iraqi Kurds’ pursuit of independence threatens their own territorial integrity by inspiring the Kurdish population in those countries to seek independence. IANS
