(en) US x ISIS, "another stupid war" where the hope of humanity is in the Kurdish forces by BrunoL (pt) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 22 Nov 2014 11:38:51 +0200

In early September, while NATO performed its annual meeting with the secretary of the covenant passing the hat to squeeze revenue from member countries, it is noted a rush of horror. Powered by US allies in the region, the Al-Qaeda force the border of Syria with Israel and at the same time, announces the formation of his arm in India. In the Levant, facing each other creator (Al-Qaeda through his arm, Al Nusra Front) and creation (ISIS, splits Al-Qaeda in Iraq). The superpower watched "almost inert," not to get too involved and create a new Sunni awakening. Finally, the big question is - How can a moving force, ISIS, to be funded by a pirate caliphate living selling oil? Crude oil is not as easy to carry and hold even less correct bank compensation?

Map of the siege of Kobane, where black flags are the forces of ISIS and the yellow flag represents the Kurdish counterattack.

The pressure of public opinion and the focus in Iraq - instead of Gaza - have led the White House to stop the inertia and give sequence to "Another stupid war!" This phrase was the definition of a Democratic state senator from Illinois, Barack Hussein Obama, criticizing the escalation of war in Iraq Bush Jr. Now, his administration shoves his feet in the mire anti-ISIS without making the slightest effort to dry up the source of funds of the proto-caliphate. Will play the US in the eye of the storm again and stir the reaction of Gulf allies rightly allied monarchies wahabbitas superpower and suppliers of goods and supplies of Al Qaeda and ISIS.

Superpower maintains the standard, reproducing the same mistakes of the War on Terror (GWOT). These will now be repeated in new (re) intervention in Syria and Iraq. Any connoisseur of Arab and Islamic world must wonder how it is possible to reproduce the same dubious criterion for supporting a "jihadism well," controlled by the Saudis, the other against "jihadism evil" supported the same convenience as Saudi and other monarchies and emirates oil ?! As peace with Iran and the revaluation of the Shia is out of the question, the White House will sink further into the swamp dug by the Department of Defense (DoD) at the beginning of Bush Jr administration and continued by Barack Obama shamefully.

The confusion only increases. The Obama administration points to diplomatic criticism of Assad regime in Syria and says he wants to prepare an offensive against ISIS. To do so, has the "moderate" opposition Syrian Free Army (TV Turkey) whose funds are dwindling! Easier would be a truce in Syria. Just without the triangulation with the axis of allies Iran-Hizballah-Assad and the presence of Shiites in Iraq this fight will not happen. Instead of cutting the source, John Kerry walks among sheikhs and flatters the king of Saudi and its parasitic cut.

The problem lies precisely in the superpower allies in the region. And can someone explain how to negotiate USD 1 million dollars a day in crude oil (through pipelines and refineries controlled), starting production of a not internationally recognized caliphate?

If there's good news is the increased presence of Kurdish left in the Kurdistan region belonging to the embattled Syrian state. The combined forces in the Kurdish Protection Units of the People (YPG stands from the original Arabic) militiamen add multiple confessions and organizes resistance in Kobani. The YPG is part of a group of cantons in Syrian Kurdistan totaling five counties (cantons), 5 towns and about 100 villages. In resistance to ISIS and its war of annihilation and extermination, the possibilities of new social relations depend increasingly on Kurdish militias and unfortunately they end up being too dependent on bombing the positions of the fundamentalist Islamic state in the siege of Kobane.

In international politics nothing is as simple as it sounds.
