Really, I'm not even remotely surprised anymore.


Readers, a small detective story. Note down this number: MFG BGM-71E-1B. And this number: STOCK NO 1410-01-300-0254. And this code: DAA A01 C-0292. I found all these numerals printed on the side of a spent missile casing lying in the basement of a bombed-out Islamist base in eastern Aleppo last year. At the top were the words “Hughes Aircraft Co”, founded in California back in the 1930s by the infamous Howard Hughes and sold in 1997 to Raytheon, the massive US defence contractor whose profits last year came to $23.35bn (£18bn). Shareholders include the Bank of America and Deutsche Bank. Raytheon’s Middle East offices can be found in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Israel, Egypt, Turkey and Kuwait.

There were dozens of other used-up identical missile casings in the same underground room in the ruins of eastern Aleppo,


I traced missile casings in Syria back to their original sellers, so it’s time for the west to reveal who they sell arms to.

Here's a video on what was found:



Well it's been long suspected that the United States has been behind the arming of ISIS. This has been for a number of years now starting out from under the Obama Administration. But the history of the American government supporting terrorist regimes spans a far longer period. CATO did a report in the early 2000s detailing how the then Bush Administration supported and armed the Taliban at the height of the post 9/11 war on terrorism. We can even go back to the Iran Contra Affair involving the Reagan Administration.

It looks like old habits die hard, regardless of which party controls DC. Funnily enough Trump himself pushed for the ending of military aid to the Syrian rebels citing America's non-involvement in these matters. All this while accusing previous Administrations of funding terrorists, including the Obama administration for supporting ISIS. All the while bring on the likes Bolton and Cotton, well known neocon war hawks, into his administration. Let's also not forget his authorization on bombing Syria earlier this year and his continued increased use of drones. Now, coming up 2 years into his Administration with a Republican controlled Congress, we have these revelations.

The cycle continues.

So you'll not blame who started this? Instead you'll feed your Trump hate and blame it on him?

Me neither.

Who started the long cycle of arming terrorists? Reagan? Nixon? Kennedy?

I know, you'd rather lay blame on the Obama administration, forget everything prior and everything after right?

Am I wrong? Let me know k?

Bud?

It is easier to take US foreign policy piece meal. There are many instances where the US has backed "bad" regimes because of the worse booger man (USSR or fill in the blank).
But there is definitely more, perhaps much more to the story. Drug running, financial hitmen and propping up/killing/arresting supported installed leaders when they won't play ball (centralized banking) Noriega, Hussein, Muammar Gaddafi are a few.

Of course financial hitmen are working for the corps, but kinda for the govt as well.

And of course the profits are much, much better if you can sell to both sides in a protracted war or "action:.

Yea... When we pulled out of iraq we left their military some good stuff.

Does anyone remember when their military was ran out of town?

At the time there was a thread on here making fun of isis because they could not figure out how to operate the mraps and such...

All of them.

They sat right front centre of the Executive branch, they had the power to front up and address this issue, and instead they've let it play out. ISIS, Taliban you name it... we've been involved in arming them all... we've helped stoke the fires, and each and every Administration would've been well aware during that time. This one is no different.

Do you agree?

US arms sales to foreign entities is one of the main reasons Benghazi occurred. Why are you alluding to Trump as if he is arming ISIS though?

Not Trump. But here you are, blaming here again for something that started many years ago and the 8 years of Obama administration did NOTHING to stop. Instead, it feed more and more the terrorists.

Trump is having a hard time at cleaning all of this mess. Don't ask him to save the world in 2 years.

And who are you to tell about drone strikes?

Lol...

Hillary-ous.

Because the thread is about ISIS arms being traced back to American suppliers.

Why are you deflecting back to Benghazi? There's a ton of threads out there devoted to that and that alone.

I never stated Trump was responsible for starting the cycle that has come to past for many Administrations. I am saying, rather clearly, the arming of ISIS continues under this administration, as with the others before it.

This revelation doesn't appear to sit too well for you hence the deflection.

So we can conclude from the responses here so far.

Obama, Hillary, Benghazi.

Ok then. This is the point we've gotten to.

It is almost like the Military Industrial Corporation is beyond petty politics. They will still use the song and dance to their advantage so the populace doesn't look behind the curtains. But it doesn't matter what administration is in office, they just keep on killing away.

There was a quote I recently heard that struck a chord of truth: Politicians and Politics is simply the theater arm of the MIC.

Funny right? They seem to trascend party politics. Gosh I'm actually starting to like them more just on that alone.

I think you like to twist whatever you read against President Trump Administration. Show us what part of your source made you think that crap.

One of the earliest major setbacks in the war against ISIS came last June when the U.S.-backed Iraqi army was routed by Islamic militants in the northern Iraq city of Mosul. Government forces retreated from the Islamic jihadists’ assault. They left behind a trove of costly military hardware, including U.S.-made armored Humvees, trucks, rockets, machine guns and even a helicopter.

Last weekend, the new Iraqi prime minister, Haider al-Abadi, gave Iraqi state television the first detailed accounting of those lost weapons. Some were old or barely functioning, but others were in good shape and of great value to the ISIS militants.

According to Reuters, the U.S.-made weaponry that fell into enemy hands including 2,300 Humvee armored vehicles, at least 40 M1A1 main battle tanks, 74,000 machine guns, and as many as 52 M198 howitzer mobile gun systems, plus small arms and ammunition.


Our administration mishandled Iraq so woefully bad, it's almost like the US wanted ISIS to become a major force 7 years ago.
