U.S. Demands Russia Stop Bombing Al-Qaeda

Demonstrating once again its longstanding support for al-Qaeda and other related terror groups in Syria, the United States has now, according to the Russian Defense Ministry, requested that the Russian military refrain from bombing al-Nusra targets.

The United States, however, is publicly claiming that it simply wants Russia to be more careful when it comes to selecting targets so that it does not hit “moderate rebels.” Russia’s argument is that, if “moderate rebels” want to avoid being bombed, they should cease “intermingling” and working with terrorist forces who are considered “extreme” and are not part of the ceasefire.

“They are telling us not to hit it (Nusra), because there is ‘normal’ opposition next .. to it,” Lavrov said. “But that opposition must leave terrorists’ positions, we long have agreed on that.”

Sounds reasonable enough. Of course, it’s all predicated on the idea that there is such a thing as a “moderate rebel” in Syria which there isn’t, but that issue has been covered ad nauseum in my previous articles and has been demonstrated beyond reasonable debate to be a lie of propaganda coming from the West and the Western media outlets.

U.S. State Department Spokesman Mark Toner told reporters at a press conference in Washington that “This is a common refrain, common theme that we’ve been conveying to the Russians over the past weeks. We obviously all agree that ISIL and the Nusra Front pose a real threat to the security on the ground in Syria.” He added that airstrikes against the non-existent “moderate rebels” and non-existent intentional airstrikes on civilians make people “more supportive of these terrorist groups and that is a dynamic we’ve seen play out in Syria for years now because of the regime’s actions.”

Apparently Toner is living in a bizarre parallel universe where people not only support Daesh but where that support is actually increasing. He certainly doesn’t live in Syria where only an infinitesimally small portion of Syrians ever supported the “rebels” and where that support has continued to dwindle even amongst even the most impressionable of civilians. He certainly isn’t living in the same universe as the rest of us since his claim is that Assad is responsible for the bombing of civilians and the phantom support of ISIS. Nor is he even following his own logic since, according to his statement, the United States bombing campaign that has been aimed at the Syrian military, civilians, and civilian infrastructure would be considered a campaign that makes people “more supportive of these terrorist groups.”

Yet just to be clear, al-Nusra Front is not merely al-Qaeda linked, it is al-Qaeda. Nusra is nothing more than the Syrian branch of the al-Qaeda franchise, a fact that even the schizophrenic U.S. does not deny. Thus, when the United States requests Russia to refrain from bombing al-Qaeda, Americans should begin looking around and asking why the United States, after over a decade of war, terror, and the shredding of the Constitution, would demand that the organization that stands as the very basis for those acts would be spared from destruction? What happened to “never forgetting 9/11?” What happened to the civil liberties that disappeared under the guise that our government was protecting us from al-Qaeda? Can we have those back now if the war on al-Qaeda is over?

The answer to these questions is simple: The United States does not want to destroy al-Qaeda, because al-Qaeda is the CIA’s Arab Legion. Indeed, al-Qaeda and ISIS are nothing more than proxies wholly controlled, organized, and directed by Western intelligence who are being used for geopolitical proxy wars and for justification of the dismantling of any shred of civil liberties back home. If the collusion (at best) between the United States and al-Qaeda is not abundantly clear to onlookers by now, it is difficult to imagine what else would be able to convince them of what is now painfully obvious.
