******************************* I.S. MONSTER A U.S. CREATION
the lesson is karma every action, good or bad, triggers a reaction hate begets hate, love begets love an eye for an eye triggers ten eyes for an eye anti-terrorism is a form of terrorism the extremists on both sides are the culprits pentagon generals and jihadists because there are too many wounds unhealed only the next generations who have no wounds are the hope for peace – the grave nurtures a flower they celebrated when bin laden was assassinated it was not a victory, but the beginning of the end the greatest danger today is that I.S. elements are Arab Americans and Muslim Europeans who will go back to their homelands to sow terror the enemy is now within it is no longer just an exported war they are in the coffee shops we go to nsa will strangle americans to find and take out the enemy within The accumulation of US intrusions in the Middle East in the last two decades has ultimately created a monster called Islamic State (I.S.) The many drones which killed civilians randomly, the illegal tortures at Guantanamo, ultimately catalyzed an international movement beyond anyone’s imagination. The hate-America Arab mindset has gathered momentum. Indeed, Al Queda evolved into a bigger richer better stronger Islamic State in spite of the US trillion-dollar anti-terrorism drive through the decade. In fact, it is ironically the anti-terrorism drive which is now triggering more terrorism.
The Syrian revolution offered the golden opportunity. Today, within three short years, 12,000 Sunnis from 50 countries, including the US, have gathered in Syria to give birth to the Islamic State. Right now, it is achieving massive recruitments of Sunnis in I.S. occupied Sunni enclaves in Iraq and in Syria, in preparation for a final assault on both Baghdad and Damascus.
Now the US is in panic over the very monster of its own creation, a well-armed wealthy sophisticated vicious cross-border I.S. army, whose ranks may double in just one month. The US knows its airstrikes in Northern Iraq, although effective short-term, are futile band-aid solutions. The US is helpless to contain the I.S. because sending troops is out of the question, and airstrikes in Syria may have complications. The US fears that undercover American I.S. members in Syria-Iraq will return to the US to dare the NSA in new creative terrorist initiatives. The Philippines is not exempt. There are reports Filipino Muslims were trained by I.S. in Syria recently. In desperation, the US has to find radical creative solutions, and may have to shake hands with its enemy Assad. It now has a big dilemma. X X
The Islamic State’s ‘APOCALYPTIC VISION’
It is important to know the spiritual and psychological evolution of the Islamic State warrior, how it has evolved through the years. Many cannot comprehend how they would behead so casually, massacre entire villages, tell people ‘convert to Islam or die’, such inhuman and vicious actions. Most of the founders of IS have witnessed their families and communities massacred by Americans.
The Western media has labeled the I.S. mindset as an ‘apocalyptic vision’. There is now talk of ‘the third and final jihad’ and the rise of the ‘anti-Christ’. This perverted vision of total vengeance was formed as early as before the Iranian Revolution, an accumulation of protracted violence against the Arabs, or among themselves. The I.S. especially drools over the beheading of Americans, announcing these in the global internet for the world to see.
A second factor in the I.S. growth is the Shiite massacre of Sunnis when they dominated the Iraqi government, in retaliation to Sunni massacres of Shiites during Saddam’s regime. Lately, the bombing of a Sunni mosque left 43 dead. It is a vicious circle of vengeance among Sunnis and Shiites. I.S. has catalyzed an intensified expanded Sunni-Shiite confrontation. It is possible that in the long term, World War III may begin in the Middle East if the I.S. takes over Iraq and Syria and stages a new war versus Iran, the hub of the Shiites. firstname.lastname@example.orgSources – http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-28814633 http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-28814633
A retired general asks, “What if Bangsamoro Revolts?”
A retired general asks – what assurance does the BBL give that unscrupulous elements in the Bangsamoro autonomous government will not use their budget to fund a rebel army, if relations with the government deteriorate later on? There are reports that Filipino Muslims were trained by the I.S. in Syria. Is there a possibility of an alliance of these extremists and ex-rebel elements?
A Philippine Star report says “Both parties recognized the importance of having the draft Bangsamoro Basic Law passed on time?” In time for what? Not all angles may be seen right away by fast-tracking. What is the hurry? The ex-general asks – what if?***************************************** THE LORD OF MERCY IS THE LORD OF WRATH
