Jill Stein is right! “US funds and arms al-Qaeda, ISIS”

What she left out: "On behalf of Israel and its fabricated 'clash of civilizations'"

 

Press TV interviews Veterans Today Editor Kevin Barrett

Former US Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein has accused Washington of backing terrorist groups, ‘when it serves its interests.’

“In case you didn’t know, the United States funds and arms terrorist groups like al-Qaeda and ISIS when it needs them to disrupt a country,” Stein wrote in her Twitter account on Sunday.

An author and Middle East expert believes the United States has been disrupting the governments it wishes to take down through terrorism since World War II.

“It has been a standard part of American policy and it is not just al-Qaeda and Daesh. These are the biggest and most spectacular current manifestations of the United States long-standing policy of supporting terrorists but it goes way back to the era of the Cold War,” Kevin Barrett told Press TV in an interview on Monday.

He also noted al-Qaeda has always been a US asset ever since the Cold War, adding that it has mostly done Washington’s bidding by attacking Russian interests along the border of Russia.

The expert further stated the United States created the Daesh terrorist group in order to implement its regime change policy in Syria, and to divide and conquer the Middle East by stirring up ethnic and sectarian tensions.

Barrett also argued these terrorist groups are “strategically very useful” to the United States because they give Washington the excuse to intervene in any country it wishes.

He concluded by saying that the American people are starting to wake up to the fact that the United States’ fight in Syria is a “shell game” and a “deception” because it is actually against President Bashar al-Assad not Daesh.

    Stein’s accusations are just a little bit late at this stage of the game. However late they may be , the hope that they will reach a broader range of Americans this time around. That the U.S. is the largest purveyor of overseas arms sales, particularly to the Gulf States and to Israel, is no secret to anyone except ignorant Americans.
    This must come to a halt, no matter how much the unions screech and bluster about their jobs, it must be stopped.
    If America is ever to regain whatever moral code or self respect, it must stop this madness. Just because it is providing jobs to a few people doesn’t mean that others in the world need to suffer and die just so some Americans can buy 100″ flat screen tvs , oversize pick up trucks and other useless junk they didn’t want anyway.
    Besides abandoning the 1972 Nuclear Arms Agreement, it has abandoned all reason and moral initiative. Its people, many who claim to be religious, lack any spirituality. In truth, religion kills spirituality.

    Well said, Kevin ~ Jill Stein was the only legitimate candidate left standing in our tarnished 2016 election and the only one courageous enough to damand a recount. I’m proud to say she got my enthusiastic vote.

    What the world was able to learn from 9/11 on is that there is no chain of command in US hierarchy, that there is no hieararchy at all, there are basically only loose players and snitches out there, mafia-like folks that are called senators, presidents, governors, generals, candidates etc. US also predates on zero foreign political responsibility whatsoever, which hardly makes case for a world superpower.

    Old news for those that don’t follow fake news. All Steinski had to do was read VT for her daily Intel updates! Is she aware yet of the once shocking False Flag details of 9/11? Sandy Hoax? Boston, Orlando? NY London Paris Munich everybody talk about mmm….

    What is it Gordon says about too stupid to live? Not very nice, but c’mon Stein, we know that you knew about the U.S. creation and funding of ISIS all along. It’s just the people have awoken and you wanna now claim ignorance. I’m sure you’ll be joined shortly by other elected officials hoping to cover their tails, but too little too late. Change is in the air…maybe in the form of a galactic wave 😉

    She may be right, but she is decades late. It should be embarrassing to admit these facts for a politician. This would not be happening if 99% of the citizenry were not affected by somnambulism…

      You would be somnambulistic too if you ate all the junk food and watched nothing but sports, fake news and idiot comedies, not to mention being turned into zombies by televangelists.

      “somnambulism”

      I had to use my dictionary for that one. Hahah

    Good for her!

    Here’s a DOD report from 2012, which confirms her point.

    http://www.judicialwatch.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Pg.-291-Pgs.-287-293-JW-v-DOD-and-State-14-812-DOD-Release-2015-04-10-final-version11.pdf

    A couple main points from the document, “B. The salafist, the Muslim brotherhood and AQI (Al Qaeda Iraq) are the major forces driving the insurgency in Syria.”

    “C. The West, Gulf countries and Turkey support the opposition; While Russia, China and Iran support the regime” (legitimate Syrian government)

    “8.C- There is the possibility of establishing a declared, or undeclared, salafist principality in eastern Syria and this is exactly what the supporting powers of the opposition want.”

    The USG supports terrorists in Syria by their own admission.
