^ Your Pentagon tax $ at work

If you’re in the business I’ve been in, there can, at times, be little pleasure in being proven right. This post could be the last addition to my open source collection ‘The Arab Spring for Dummies’, with a Defense Intelligence Agency document backing my Arab Spring (Syria) assertions; little different to the House of Representatives finding the Ukrainian regime at Kiev has incorporated neo-Nazis to its’ military (see immediate preceding post ‘Kiev’s Nazis‘) having vindicated much or most of my analysis on the subject of Ukraine, and has made further attention to these subjects largely unnecessary.

‘Tyler Durden’ (what a pity Brad Pitt sold out to Chevron and blew his brilliant legacy) over at ‘zero hedge’ has reposted a damning article on the USA’s policy of utilizing al-Qaida as a ‘strategic asset’ in the effort to overthrow Assad in Syria. While the article merely reinforces essential conclusions developed with open source at this blog, what is remarkable is the fact of the article at zero hedge pointing to a Defense Intelligence Agency assessment confirming the facts from the inside.

What is confirmed is, the ‘western powers’ (USA & certain EU or NATO states) along with the Gulf states (Saudis, et al) and Turkey (Israel and Jordan play as well) funded, trained and armed al-Qaida while fully aware of the potential for this to combine several terror groups into what has become Islamic State. Specific language in the DIA assessment includes:

“the West, Gulf countries and Turkey support the opposition…

“…there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist principality in Eastern Syria .. and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime…”

And finally, in a case of ‘chickens come home to roost, the (2012) DIA assessment predicts a spillover of the Salafist entity the western democracies essentially created (Islamic State) from Syria into a partitioned Iraq with Sunni and Shia entities engaged in civil war…

“ISI could also declare an Islamic State through its union with other terrorist organizations in Iraq and Syria, which will create grave danger in regards to unifying Iraq…”

…and that is exactly the fight on the front of today’s mainstream news, sans the preceding information.

And by way of farewell to the subject at this blog, don’t forget, if you’ve read here before, you likely read the facts here first. Meanwhile, here is the Defense Intelligence Agency document:
