The Pentagon has already submitted a plan to President Obama telling him how to defeat ISIS but he has rejected it.

He does not want “boots on the ground” and is interested in toppling Syria and appeasing Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Kuwait, who are the financial paymasters of ISIS.

Dr Alf’s question relates to Tony Blair, who is respected in America, however, the armaments manufacturers on the Washington “Beltway” and the jobs they create plus lobbying from our own BAE Defence Systems are an even more powerful voice who want to sell arms to the same people who are financing ISIS.

For the time being, the Obama calculus may very well be let ISIS, Boko Haram and others rampage but put no boots on the ground until he is ready to leave office in November 2016, after which the problem is someone else’s.

If in the meantime, Syria falls and the next domino on the Middle East chessboard, Iran remains in the cross hairs, then so much the better for Obama who can argue that he has no mandate from a war-weary US public to put “boots on the ground”.

The reality is that the money does not flow to ISIS directly but goes via a Turkish bank in London and then to Turkey which is in league with ISIS by supplying logistics, using its hospitals and doctors to treat ISIS fighters.

Other money for ISIS comes from looting and plundering the areas they conquer, the application of taxes on the conquered populations (the ones they don’t kill) and from sales of oil.

Like Tony Blair, I think these people are at war with us already, and our response has been and still is limp-wristed and inadequate.

However, Obama is a man who vacillates and dithers, so I expect him to play the waiting game, wash his hands of the affair in latter day Pontius Pilate style and drive off on his golf buggy into the Californian sunset in 2016.

Opinion – China’s top paper says West stoking extremism in Middle East | Reuters – John Gelmini

Dr Alf raises a legitimate concern but the Chinese have put their finger on the true nature of the problem, whilst carefully not attributing true motives.

Obama and those in the PNAC plus the CFR want to reorder the Middle Eastern chessboard with the end-goal of causing Russia and China to split up and Africa to effectively be placed under their control. They cannot do this overtly because then the objectives would become all too plain to see and people sickened by endless wars (Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen etc) and the actions of Muslim fanatics (ISIS,AL Shabab, Korosan, Boko Haram, the Taliban, Al Qaeda) would revolt.

So instead of more Western boots on the ground, they allow the fanatics to create trouble and take territory. This, whilst they stand back in Pontius Pilate like fashion and pretend to be concerned whilst doing as little as possible to stop the slaughter of innocents.

The objective of the Globalists is their so-called New World Order but the radicalized Muslims have an identical goal which is to create a global Caliphate and eliminate apostates,unbelievers and suffers(everyone else).
