ISIL, another bogeyman created by US: Analyst


Interview with  Gordon Duff,  VT Sr. Editor


Press TV has conducted an interview with Gordon Duff, senior editor of Veterans Today from Ohio, about the United States saying it will not coordinate future airstrikes on ISIL terrorists inside Syria despite warnings by Damascus that any unauthorized strike on its soil is an act of aggression.

What follows is an approximate transcription of the interview.

Press TV: Well how do you see this whole situation? On the one hand we see both Cameron and Obama coming out verbally condemning what is going on and said that they are going to stop it. On the other hand they are talking about airstrikes so far without putting troops on the air.

It appears to some that on the one hand that they are trying to show that they are against ISIL but in reality that that may not be the case. Your take.

Duff: I think you have got it exactly right. Kerry is not generally as irrational as Cameron and some others that the US is still publically very much behind overthrowing the government of Syria using force that the US is publically behind backing al-Qaeda affiliates and ISIL and al-Nusra are not only al-Qaeda affiliates they share membership.

There is no proven difference between them and between their goals even their membership and leadership are intermeshed entirely. And one is totally supported by the United States not just that. Kerry has also said he plans on upping support for al-Nusra, the ally of ISIL and in doing so increased the pressure on the Syrian government aiding ISIL and if you see where this is going, I cannot make sense of it, you cannot make sense of it, I do not see where anyone else can either.

Press TV: There are some analysts saying that all this is basically about making sure that the region just remains unstable, just creating, continuing a constant state of chaos that that actually is what the United States wants. How do you see that?

Duff: That is also correct. The US made the mistake during the Syrian conflict of burning up one of its cardboard cutout bogeymen. Al-Qaeda was always a creation of the United States. It was always part of the CIA. There was no terrorist leader Osama bin Laden. I still hear this. Any of us that works in intelligence, it drives us crazy hearing this kind of insanity.

When we began publically supporting al-Qaeda we lost the ability to run to the American people and point at them as a bogeyman. We had to invent another and we clearly invented this one. And no, they are not out of hand. They are doing exactly what the US government wants them do exactly what you described and the worst thing that can happen to the US government is to do something that would actually defeat ISIL.

I work with a group of military counter-terrorism experts. Defeating ISIL would take two weeks. They are in territory where we can block their communications, monitor them, block any move, cut off any resources, we can do it easily with their power alone. There would be nothing to beat them, nothing at all. There is no intent. Every word the US said is a lie.

Press TV: So then the next question would be why, why does Washington want this instability to continue to be the status quo in this region? What are they gaining from this?

Duff: People are making billions of dollars of armaments with providing cover for interference with governments throughout the area which some people mistakenly thought it was an Arab Spring. We now see it very differently. We are seeing a global aspect of the same struggle as it goes on into Ukraine as it heads into Africa. All of these things are related.

This instability is very much on the behalf of a wide group of industries, of secret societies to keep the world unstable, to certainly war against not just Islam. It is very much a war on behalf of the Haves against the Have Nots to keep the world enslaved and I know that has that anti-imperialist sound about it but it is very much accurate in this case. This is very much a war against the people of the world.

Press TV: Well how the people of the world defend themselves in this war? You said Haves against the Have Nots, what is the key because if what you are saying is true then basically the most powerful militaries are on their side, also the media is on their side so what would be the key to break this?

Duff: Well the problem we have is that by following the phony war on terror, by interdiction to third rate news organizations, gatekeepers, controlled news, by taking part in believing in the politics of NATO, the politics of the West certainly there are very few players left and among those are Putin and Russia, Iran is a player, Hamas and Hezbollah and past that the list gets very short.

The only hope we would have is to support a strengthened Non-Aligned Movement and reform in United Nations, demand reform in the United Nations and it is the only way we have to go and I am not optimistic about that.

    After all this, I bet the perpetrators of all this world-wide chaos and turmoil would stop exposing them for the fraudulent presence they are. They have proven beyond a minute doubt they pine for war even to the point of creating armies, or planning social events that keep We the people afraid of their own neighbors, and cowering seeing their own shadows.
    I have never read such ongoing honesty ion journalism as I do here at VT. I am not connected with VT in any way, but I am an avid reader and at times leave messages when I think I can add something worthwhile. Even then, it may not be worthwhile, but my disgust for the disgust I have for the idiots running this government (not this country,)and the direction they are taking us that is destroying all our ancestors sacrificed so much for the dwindling freedoms we have today. From all continents they come here for easy food, shelter, clothing, education, utilities, and last but not least freedom and we do not know who among them belongs to the so called ‘terrorist” organizations. We must stop and remember there is such a slithering entity called “domestic” we have forgotten to keep in check. Why does our government permit the destruction of this nation?

      “I bet the perpetrators of all this worldwide chaos and turmoil wish VT would stop exposing them…” sorry, phone rang interrupted me. My apologies if you tried to read this. Thank you Mr. Duff.

      “” Why does our government permit the destruction of this nation? “”

      Simply because ” our government ” is de facto not [ our ] government and the vast majority of the sheeple are virtually incapable of reclaiming ownership . The US fedgov is in thrall of the NWO International Zionist Crime Syndicate which will eventually destroy itself ; and with help it will be sooner rather than later after much more destruction by the syndicate .

    Excellent article! My compliments.

    “There is no intent. Every word the US said is a lie.”

    The Syrian Arab Army can easily defeat ISIL. And this Washington knows. So they want to bomb away the SAA from Assad/Syrian government. They want to deal with Syria in the way they did away with Gadaffi. Support ISIL from the air to remove opposition from SAA in Syria. Luckily Russia has delivered enough missiles to the SAA.

    Listen carefully to Hagel. The concept is to enlist Syrians for a new army composed of Syrians that would rather defend their homeland for the US instead of joining the Syrian army. Did they get permission from Assad first?

      Sorry, the guy in the blue Yankee uniform with the gold bands on his wrist.

    ..a strengthened Non Aligned Movement… brought up to speed…representatives of we the people, the global groundswell of the willing.. to rip this New World Order apart with their bare hands… our voice will be heard

  5. texasarm  September 16, 2014 at 12:32 pm

    Duf, you may want to look into Rand/Army in 09 and them planning this sectarian diatribe back then. Sorry to be so vague, but that’s all my memory can retrieve about this. I dunno if it was written in a report or just a statement but I do recall that there was something important about this.
    Also gotta remember Gen W. Clarks words of the 7 wars/countries in 5 years that the PNAC created. You know what their (PNAC members….Wolf, Kristol, Rummy, Cheney, Kagen….etc.,) was in Washington? It’s a great, fitting name….they were called “THE CRAZIES” .
    Syria was on the list. The US has stated they want to expand gas distribution to the world market by 2015. now does this European pipeline not fit in? This is that “secure US interest” they so fondly speak of but never explain. I like you, was hoping Obama was against the arming of ISIS but now I think this “No Plan” of his was actually part of their plan….just a hunch here. I hope I’m wrong.

    • texasarm  September 16, 2014 at 12:38 pm

      Sorry, I left the word nickname out of para above. The Crazies was the nickname for Rummy and gang

    • texasarm  September 16, 2014 at 2:52 pm

      Regarding my earlier comment
      It was 2008 document not 2009, sorry. Here’s the title
      2008 US Army-funded RAND report, Unfolding the Future of the Long War (pdf).
      The report noted that “the economies of the industrialized states will continue to rely heavily on oil, thus making it a strategically important resource.” … said Syria’s water would be scarce making it even more unstable. (thereby easier to loot them is what it really means)
      it basically states that three years before the 2011 uprisings, US defence officials were alive to the region’s growing instabilities, and concerned by the potential consequences for stability of Gulf oil.
      One should know that when Assad signed the pipeline deal with iraq-iran two years ago, it was a slap in Qatars face. Saudi prince was po’d too at Russia. This all is important why? One word….they provide us what? Petrodollars! US wants Qatar/and Saudi A. to get what they want to keep using our petrodollars…
      The pipeline route is a toss up at the moment. If it goes one way it bypasses Turkey which relates to how the Kurds fit in (and bagdad too). Another route does this and leaves this country out…and so on and so forth. It’s a big lotto right now.

  6. texasarm  September 16, 2014 at 12:08 pm

    Yes, Just follow the money, follow the wars, follow the chaos and see who is always involved. Hmm..
    This whole sectarian violence was US crafted no doubt. Why? I will tell you why (my opinion). It’s due to the Iran-Iraq-Syrian gas pipeline that was a 9billion dollar clinched deal two years ago. Then all hell broke out in Syria so the building of it was temporarily put on hold. Let me be clearer…it’s not about the pipeline itself per say, but this is more about the ROUTE it will go. Let me scream this….THIS IS ABOUT WHO WILL GET TO PROVIDE GAS TO EUROPE. Qatar is so worried about the route they have spent 3 billion financing this bullshit Syrian uprising.

      tex…increasingly, we have been seeing the nasty little hands of the Rand Corporation including in the planning of benghzai

    • dirtus napus  September 17, 2014 at 4:23 pm

      You got it Tex, need not be in the intel game to see how this began, just like 9/11 and “that failed plant” in India (Enron). If you looked at where that pipe was going to terminate, you would see the black blood cells in this case surround these cities (Allepo and two others near the west coast) at the same time and then CNN went into overdrive on que. Turkey shout out of gas shipping totally? Can’t be allowed to happen to even a quasi Nato shithole sir. Not when the game is checkers and Russia hasn’t moved a pawn yet, which they did……and it was a queen compared to a small black disk in the form of 300km S400 Russia.

    No does not sound like the people on this planet has much of a chance… but then dynasties and empires come and go… and this one as evil as it is will go to… as surely as there is a sunup and a sundown… when I hear Obama/Kerry/Cameron but especially Obama he sounds just like the one of the 10 mad Roman Emperors Caligula was the last and probably the worst you can read about all 10 here http //
