The facade is crumbling on all sides. From mainstream media’s illusion of objectivity to the dissolving lie of the mythical “moderate rebel,” what was once a forgone conclusion, is now exceedingly uncertain. As that may sound unsettling, it is indeed a good thing. Truth may be uncomfortable at times, but to avoid it for a comfortable hole in the sand will most certainly lead to a life of control and mitigation. Many would no doubt prefer the “ignorance is bliss” option, and opt to remain under the unseen controlling hand of the deep state. Yet if we maintain this course, that will no longer be an option.
The idea that the US was funding and training ISIS, at one point, was right up there with flat earth theory to the average individual. In the past few years, if one chose to address the obvious contradictions in the “moderate rebel” narrative or point out the clear connections between the US and those they were meant to be fighting, they would be met with the customary denial, insults and anger. Then something changed; shifted. Whether it was a factor beyond our control or the ineptitude of the bumbling corporate media that ultimately pulled down the veil, within the last year primarily, Americans began to wake up; they began to ask questions; they began to see through the lies for the first time in a very long time.
One of the most profound and damning revelations to come of this mass awakening is the fact that the US has been directly funding and training ISIS.
The simple construct that ‘the US is the good guys fighting the bad guys, and the bad guys are ISIS‘ is the foundation on which the entirety of this country’s invasive foreign policy is currently built. It is under the guise of this falsely moral premises that entire countries have been left in ruin for the success and profit of an elite few. All of the countries that have been “saved” and forcefully given that very special brand of American “democracy,” end with complete destabilization and repopulation with terrorist organizations; and were done so on that flimsy construct.
We now know that the entire story is all a massive manipulation. It is possible that when the operation first began that it was driven by good intentions and was working with genuine moderate rebels(whatever that now means) however unlikely and uncharacteristic that may be. If that is the case, at a certain point the US made the conscious decision to continue funding what had become the very thing they were claiming to fight. It is also important to remember that while the US was funding this terrorist organization, there were many attacks on both US soil and abroad, that were either claimed by ISIS, or blamed on ISIS. Either way, that makes the US, at the very least, complicit in the attack of innocent citizens. But sadly, that would be far from the first time. This should make everyone question just about every “fact” that both the mainstream media and the US government hand down as gospel.
