We are preparing a special report on the Middle East with the various currencies and share markets combined with the Energy Markets. There are tremendous aspects of the Middle-East that are not understood to say the least outside the region. The importance of this in-depth research impacts the War Cycle without question. The radical ISIS group was funded by Saudi Arabia and the United States all in an effort to create a smoke screen for a pipeline Saudi Arabia wanted through Syria to compete with Russia in Europe. However, it is gathering followers even from Georgia in Russia and the goal is to create a new Crusade.
The entire Benghazi incident was not what it seems. Based upon information and belief, Ambassador Sevens was initially providing arms to Libyan rebels to overthrow Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, who was killed by the U.S. funded rebels on October 20, 2011 during the Battle of Sirte. President Obama signed a secret order authorizing covert U.S. government support for rebel forces seeking to oust Gaddafi, reported Reuters on March 20, 2011. Almost a year after the fall of Gaddafi, on Sept. 11 and 12, 2012, a U.S. diplomatic compound and CIA annex in the Libyan city of Benghazi were attacked, killing four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens who served there between June 2012 to September 12, 2012, reported the Washington Post. However, Stevens had served in Libya twice previously: as the Deputy Chief of Mission (from 2007 to 2009) and as Special Representative to the National Transitional Council (from March 2011 to November 2011) during the Libyan revolution. He arrived in Tripoli in May 2012 as the U.S. Ambassador to Libya.
According to reliable sources, Stevens was then providing arms to Libyan rebels to overthrow Gaddafi via the CIA. On September 3rd, 2013, the Telegraph in London reported that during a meeting at the White House, the president assured Senator John McCain that after months of delay the US was meeting its commitment to back moderate elements of the opposition. Steven was appointed to the National Transitional Council in March 2011 BEFORE Gaddafi was killed in October 2011. Obviously, Stevens was in the middle of the CIA operation.
Recently declassified documents, General Ham knew within minutes that our Benghazi consulate was not only under attack, but that it was a terrorist attack. General Ham immediately informed General Dempsey, the two of them immediately informed Secretary Panetta, who immediately met with President Obama. Therefore, within an hour, President Obama KNEW the ambassador and his staff were under attack by a well-armed terrorist group. He then ordered that NO ASSISTANCE be provided to the consulate staff, four of whom were killed.
The mystery is that help stood near by. Why no help? Was this because the arms supply had shifted from Libya to Syria and this was pay-back for CIA shenanigans? Weeks following the incident, Obama and many of his aides (including then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and then U.N. Ambassador/now National Security Adviser Susan Rice) REPEATEDLY told the public the violence had been the result of a protest over a YouTube video gone awry. Obama and Clinton told the victims’ families that they had no idea it was a terror attack or that the consulate was in serious danger.
After Obama’s re-election campaign was over, only then did evidence emerge that the video story was a cover-up and the Obama administration then apologized for having knowingly and deliberately LIED to American voters at a sensitive time to win the campaign. While being questioned about this, Hillary Clinton in her tactless response: “What DIFFERENCE does it make?”
The difference is that the U.S. funded elements of ISIS and this was a political move with an objective to help Saudi Arabia (Sunni) get a pipeline through Syria to compete with Russia for the European market. What is clear, is that ISIS is well-funded and is intent upon creating war with Christianity – a very radical sect of Islam that is as extreme as the Puritans were in England. Their radical goal is to inspire all Muslims to join their cause around the world. The Puritans outlawed kissing your wife in public, all sports because it led to cursing, plays because acting was a lie, and even Christmas with spies peeking in your windows to ensure you were not celebrating. When they arrive in America as the “Pilgrims” they slaughtered 600 Indians because their women were bare-breasted and that offended God. The Puritans also beheaded King Charles I before the French Revolution. So there are extremes in all religions and Islam as a whole will join these radicals for the majority of Sunni do not share their ideas.
One of their star military generals per se is a 28 year-old fighter known as Omar al-Shishani the Chechen or his given name Tarkhan Batirashvili, as reported by NBC His involvement demonstrates the wide reach of ISIS as well as its ferocity: For you see, Omar Al-Shishani grew up in Pankisi Gorge of Georgia, the very hardcore region of resistance against Russia. This region is known as the real elite – “the Harvard of terrorist upbringing.” Omar appeared in an ISIS video asking God to grant his fellow fighters martyrdom if they can’t establish an enormous Islamic state.
The divide between the Sunni and Shiite branches of Islam is both ancient and still highly consequential today. In Syria, a Sunni-majority country dominated by members of a Shiite sect, fighting that began as anti-government has taken on sectarian overtones. That has spilled over to Iraq, which is Shiite-majority and has a predominantly Shiite government but is increasingly troubled by Sunni rebels. And the region’s major powers have long pushed sectarian interests, with Shiite-majority Iran on one side and Sunni-majority Saudi Arabia on the other.
The history of the Sunni-Shiite divide and what it means for Iraq’s escalating violence today is important for it will drag the USA into war if not also Russia. It’s important to note that this religious division is one of many factors driving the conflicts in the Middle East. Although theological differences are not in themselves enough to explain the fighting, it’s important to understand the very basics to grasp what’s happening in the region.
We are preparing this report for our many followers in the region. Nevertheless, its impact on currency flow, energy prices for the future, international capital investment will be extremely profound. Therefore, it will be open for all clients and not restricted for circulation just in the Middle East as previous.
