Turkish-Uyghur Terror Inc. - America's Other Al Qaeda

It is no longer tenable for the United States and its regional allies in and near the Middle East to claim they are backing "moderate rebels" in the proxy war raging in Syria, Iraq, and parts of Lebanon. There is the Syrian government on one side, and terrorists including Al Qaeda and its various franchises such as the Al Nusra Front and the so-called "Islamic State" (ISIS/ISIL) on the other.
If one is not supporting the Syrian government, it is very clear they are supporting Al Qaeda. So obvious is this fact, that the Western press and the corporate-financier think tanks that produce for them their talking points, have begun a campaign to re-brand Al Qaeda as a lesser evil vis-a-vis ISIS. In reality, there is virtually no difference, with the US and its regional allies clearly arming, funding, and supporting both.
Within this rhetorical shift we find an admission that there is indeed no "moderate rebel" force to speak of. All that exists, admittedly, are extremists operating under the various banners of Al Qaeda and ISIS.

Who would have thought, the United States government would sink to this level of insanity?

What a sobering read this was. Turkish-Uyghur, no doubt this will be one bunch of terrorists that Washington and the Jewish Neo-cons created that won't be getting bombed by those who created it.

Looks like Washington is determined to get Russia and China joined at the hip.

Iran Key to Unlocking US Hypocrisy on Global Terrorism

By Finian Cunningham (Another illuminating article)

Once we step back from the indoctrinated official Western narratives about terrorism, and supposed Western claims of fighting a “war on terror”, many seeming conundrums suddenly become clear. The US and its Western allies claim to be bombing Syria and Iraq to defeat the Islamic State and other jihadist terror groups. After more than a year of such bombing, these groups appear stronger than ever. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov recently commented that the Western campaign against IS does not appear to be genuine. He cited instances of where the US-led coalition has not attacked known bases belonging to the IS. This suggests that the US is more intent on “containing and managing” the terror groups. Which is consistent with the assumption that these groups were created in the first place by Washington and its allies as proxies for clandestine regime-change operations against targeted foreign governments.

Iran’s three decades of battling Western state-sponsored terrorism within its borders is an illuminating example of Washington’s real connection to international terrorism, and how that relationship has been obscured by Western media. Washington’s relationship to Al Qaeda and the Islamic State is wholly consistent with Washington’s support for the MEK in Iran. Why this connection appears anomalous or perhaps shocking is simply because of the sanitising role that Western media disinformation, commonly referred to as “news”, has played in making the Western public ignorant of such criminal connections.

Russia and Iran have therefore every right to take measures to combat terrorism within their own borders and those of their allies such as Syria and Iraq. Washington’s recent remonstrations with Moscow and Tehran over military aid to Syria are, in the light of American state-sponsorship of terrorism, contemptible. Washington’s remonstrations are disingenuous, double-think and outrageous hypocrisy.

The least party that deserves to be consulted or listened to about counter-terrorism is the arch-sponsor of terrorism – Washington.
