Syrian Victims of Giant US Conspiracy says Stop the War Coalition. 

A false story used to justify war

By Jason Ditz, antiwar.com

The 40,000 Yazidis stranded on the mountain. That was the pretext for US military intervention in Iraq, as set out by President Obama last Thursday. The air war was commenced, and officials were talking up sending ground forces for “rescue” operations as recently as this afternoon….

The administration just seems grateful that they got an excuse to start a war they’ve been chomping at the bit for, and even if the excuse didn’t exactly pan out, they’ll quickly find another.

  1. Stop The War are sick, crazy fucks, eh? Why the hell do some serious people and trade unions still support them?

    Their unpleasant and idiotic friend Sami Ramadani thinks ISIS “is serving Israeli and US interests”, according to the AWL’s paper ‘Solidarity’:
    ********************************************************************

    Apparently, – according to Ramadani, despite all
    known facts and common sense – Islamic State (ISIS/IS) is
    actually serving Israeli interests. The evidence for this?
    It seems the “ISIS Caliph [leader] and Israeli war criminal
    Netanyahu declared the death of Sykes-Picot borders between
    Iraq and Syria on almost the same day.” You might
    think this is a statement of fact, but not Mr Ramadani who
    finds the alleged coincidence highly suspicious.
    More than that, the leader of ISIS/IS, doesn’t “mention Israel
    or its war crimes in Palestine.” It must be so disappointing
    to Ramadani that IS writes: “We haven’t given orders to
    kill the Israelis and the Jews. The war against the nearer
    enemy, those who rebel against the faith, is more important.”
    In other words IS is quite busy, currently, slaughtering Shia
    and Christians. However, this isn’t quite the same as “serving
    Israeli interests”, is it?
    At a rally in Holland a couple of days ago IS supporters
    chanted, “Death to the Jews!” Does any sane person think
    ISIS will not get round to Israel after it has polished off the
    Shia?
    Ramadani claims, “Israel’s ambassador in Washington explained
    why Israel and the west should back ISIS ‘bad guys’
    against other ‘bad guys’.” The evidence for this? Ramadani
    links to an article by a man called Christof Lehmann. There
    are a few problems with this. The first is Christof Lehmann is
    a tiresome conspiracy nut. The second is Lehmann’s article is
    based on the word of an anonymous source ‘close to a
    Lebanese billionaire’ who claims backing for ISIS was decided
    at a meeting of a US think-tank, months ago (a thinktank
    which controls US policy?). And finally, that the article
    doesn’t mention an Israeli ambassador at all.
    Then Ramadani, having convinced himself, writes, “It
    is clear to me that ISIS is serving Israeli and US economic,
    political and military objectives in the region.”
    Which just leaves a small problem: why is the US currently
    bombing ISIS/IS?
