Syria and the Reality of the CIA, MI6 and Gulf Petrodollars: From Afghanistan to Bosnia
Boutros Hussein and Lee Jay Walker
Modern Tokyo Times
The role of the secret services of America, Pakistan and the United Kingdom run deep and this applies to the CIA, ISI and MI6 respectively. These intelligence units, which switch terrorism on and off, have been involved collectively or between two agencies in Afghanistan, Bosnia, Chechnya, Libya, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia (Siege of Mecca) and now against Syria. It is also known that you have many militant Sunni and Western covert ratlines linking Gulf petrodollars with many murky developments throughout the Caucasus region of the Russian Federation. Indeed, in much of the above it is clear that you have a very anti-Russian Federation dimension.
According to several sources the Taliban in Pakistan have entered Syria in order to assist in Islamist indoctrination, military warfare, doing special operatives, information technology and related to other important areas. The Afghan connection still runs deep and of course we all know that throughout the 1980s, and early 1990s, that the CIA, ISI and MI6 were doing everything in their power in order to create a major militant Islamist killing machine. This shared interest of Gulf petrodollars, CIA, ISI and MI6 then moved onto other parts of the world in order to boost al-Qaeda based terrorist groups. Therefore, the Bosnian civil war between 1992 and 1995 witnessed the usual terrorist networks working hand-in-hand with powerful security agencies.
The Bosnia and Afghanistan connection is abundantly obvious and this also applies to the role of the CIA, MI6, ISI, and others; in enabling between 6,000 and 10,000 international jihadists to enter this part of the Balkans. One of the mystifying realities is that international jihadists can somehow move so freely between nations despite the alleged tight security aimed at eradicating terrorism. Obviously something is amiss because jihadists from all over the world have entered the Balkans, Caucasus, Central Asia, North Africa, the Middle East, and in other parts of the world; whereby worrying about passport controls doesn’t appear to be an issue.
John R. Schindler, author of the acclaimed book called Unholy Terror, highlights the role of Bosnia within the tragedy of September 11 and other major terrorist attacks. He comments that “Although Sarajevo’s supporters went to great lengths to deny it, there was no avoiding the reality that after 9/11, as al-Qa’ida attacks multiplied across the world, a disturbing number of the terrorists involved had close ties to Bosnia and the holy war waged there. The dedicated cadres bin Laden had first nurtured in Afghanistan and brought to fruition in Bosnia were ready for the all-out confrontation with the “apostates” and “infidels” that al-Qa’ida had promised.” (Page 296 – Unholy Terror)
John R. Schindler further states that “The role of the West in the fate of Bosnia cannot be underestimated. The willful blindness of Western elites, the dishonest and mendacious representations of Bosnia and its war presented by intellectuals, academics, entertainers and journalists, decisively influenced the course of the conflict, to the benefit of radical Islam.” (Page 324 – Unholy Terror)
Therefore, it isn’t surprising that the Bosnian Muslim angle, Chechnya, Croatia, Kosovo, Libya and other parts of the Caucasus region in the Russian Federation – are all involved to various extents in the crisis in Syria. This either applies to utilizing nation states in the case of Croatia and Libya (Libya is a failed state but under Gulf and Western power mechanisms). Or, in the case of Chechen Islamists, then this applies to utilizing anti-Russian Federation terrorist networks which have links with the CIA and MI6. Indeed, it must be stated that you have several clandestine ratlines just like the Iran-Contra affair which serve powerful vested interests within internal security agencies.
In Bosnia the Bill Clinton administration gave the go ahead for international terrorists, covert security agencies, Iran and many other forces to unite together, in order to massacre Orthodox Christians in the name of democracy. Sky News reports on seeing vast numbers of al-Qaeda affiliated groups in Bosnia but of course much of this information came out afterwards. More important, this angle is still ignored today because it doesn’t suit the “Bosniak Muslim victim card” which serves the agenda of Gulf petrodollars and their willing co-conspirators in the West. After all, it is noticeable that while the Middle East is being cleansed of Christians by forces supported by America and the United Kingdom; that in the Balkans the new emergence of major Muslim areas in parts of Bosnia, northern Cyprus and Kosovo is part of the Western and Gulf axis. Indeed, for most Orthodox Christians in the Balkans it is abundantly clear that in three wars in this part of the world since the 1970s, that on each occasion the West supported Muslim forces. Therefore, in northern Cyprus and in most parts of Kosovo you have many non-Christian zones courtesy of the intrigues of Gulf petrodollars, America and the United Kingdom.
The other reality is that while conservative Middle East nations in the Gulf region have close ties with Washington and London respectively. It is clear that the same can’t be said about the relationship between secular forces in Egypt under Nasser, Iraq and in independent Syria today. Indeed, Sharia Islamic law often follows in the footsteps of the policies enacted by America and the United Kingdom. Two examples being the support of Islamic Sharia law after the demise of secular power bases in Afghanistan and Iraq. Likewise, if independent Syria is defeated by Gulf powers, major Western nations and a host of different terrorist factions; then clearly secularism in Syria will be under threat.
Given this reality, the knowledge that Pakistan Islamist involvement in Syria is growing isn’t surprising given the closeness between the CIA, ISI, MI6 and international terrorist groups. The ISI is clearly a major enigma because while Pakistan worked hand-in-glove with America and the United Kingdom in the 1980s and much of the 1990s; it is clear that they have clashed in recent times. Despite this, the money channels keep on flowing between all three nations.
The BBC reports that “Mohammad Amin, a senior Taliban operative and “co-ordinator of the Syrian base”, told the BBC that the cell to monitor “the jihad” in Syria was set up six months ago.”
“He said that the cell has the approval of militant factions both within and outside of the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), an umbrella organisation of militant groups fighting the Pakistani forces.”
“They were facilitated by our friends in Syria who have previously been fighting in Afghanistan.”
The BBC further reports that “…anti-Shia groups in Pakistan have access to considerable charity funds raised in some Middle Eastern sheikhdoms that see their domestic Shia populations as a problem…”
In other words, just like the recent murder of a member of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) by al-Qaeda took place during an open meeting between both forces in Syria. Then not only are the leaders of America, France, Turkey and the United Kingdom siding with the FSA despite its closeness towards various al-Qaeda affiliated groups; but like the BBC implies, it is clear that so-called friendly Gulf states are helping to export terrorism and sectarianism in many parts of the world. However, despite this, it appears that President Obama, President Hollande and Prime Minister Cameron not only care little about being aligned with terrorist organizations and nations that sponsor terrorism and sectarianism. Equally alarming, is that the same ruling elites in America and the United Kingdom don’t care that their anti-Syrian policies are extremely unpopular at home. Therefore, democracy in major Western nations is being tainted to a terrible extreme.
The House Subcommittee in America in 1997 lambasted Bill Clinton by stating that “….the Clinton green light would lead to this degree of Iranian influence, it is necessary to remember that the policy was adopted in the context of extensive and growing radical Islamic activity in Bosnia. That is, the Iranians and other Muslim militants had long been active in Bosnia; the American green light was an important political signal to both Sarajevo and the militants that the United States was unable or unwilling to present an obstacle to those activities — and, to a certain extent, was willing to cooperate with them. In short, the Clinton Administration’s policy of facilitating the delivery of arms to the Bosnian Muslims made it the de facto partner of an ongoing international network of governments and organizations pursuing their own agenda in Bosnia: the promotion of Islamic revolution in Europe. That network involves not only Iran but Brunei, Malaysia, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Sudan (a key ally of Iran), and Turkey, together with front groups supposedly pursuing humanitarian and cultural activities.”
Likewise, powerful political leaders in America like Senator Rand Paul are lambasting the current administration for its policy towards Syria. In The New American it reports that Rand Paul is against the arming of groups in Syria which will boost al-Qaeda terrorism. Rand Paul states that “This is an important moment. You will be funding, today, the allies of al Qaeda.”
In the same article it states that “In an exclusive interview with The New American, Senator Paul pointed out the irony in the fact that the original Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) enacted after September 11, 2001 called for finding and destroying al-Qaeda, while the legislation passed on May 21 by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee would arm known associates of that very organization.”
“These people [Syrian rebels] will say they love America knowing that that’s how to get weapons. They lie to us and then shoot us in the back,” Paul explained.”
Also, turning all the way back to Afghanistan then The New American reports that “Another bit of irony apparently lost on 15 members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee is the fact that the United States has walked this road before. In the 1980s, Congress voted to arm militant Islamic forces under the pretext that the enemy of our enemy was our friend. Then, within 20 years, the very beneficiaries of U.S. military largesse in Afghanistan seized control of that country and reportedly sheltered and trained the men who carried out the attacks of September 11.”
In Bosnia vast numbers of Orthodox Christian civilians were killed by taxes which were abused by political elites in major Western nations. This applies to beheading people, nailing Orthodox Christians to trees, defiling the bodies of women and so forth. Indeed, it was the barbarity of al-Qaeda forces and elements within the Bosnian Muslim army which triggered the terrible bloodletting in eastern Bosnia. However, all this was brushed under the carpet in order to paint a picture which suited the agenda of powerful Gulf and Western nations. Not only this, if it wasn’t for Bill Clinton encouraging Izetbegovic (leader of Bosnian Muslims) then a deal would have been done two years earlier. If so, then this would have spared the lives of innocent Christians and Muslims who were killed on both sides.
Once more today it is clear that the Russian Federation is trying to solve the crisis by inviting all external powers involved in Syria. Yet, the leaders of America, France, Turkey and the United Kingdom just seem to want to extend the conflict. Therefore, major terrorist ratlines are supporting sectarian and terrorist forces against the government of Syria. Of course, the longer this goes on then the more unstable Syria becomes and likewise Iraq and Lebanon are suffering because of the policies of major Gulf and Western nations. Once more, Christians are fleeing from forces being supported by London and Washington – and this time Paris is playing its part in assisting Takfiri and Salafist forces which hate the Alawites, Christians and the Shia.
Fox News reports that “Sen. Tom Udall, D-N.M., said in a recent Op-Ed in the Albuquerque Journal that the U.S. risks repeating past mistakes, noting that weapons given to the Afghan mujahadeen in the 1980s to help them repel the Soviets fell into the hands of the Taliban, which in turn harbored Al Qaeda.”
“In a statement sent to Fox News….Udall reiterated his concerns, saying, “I am very skeptical that arming rebels we know little about and intervening in a Middle East civil war, will serve U.S. interests.”
“Arming groups whose members likely have links to Al Qaeda and other radical groups, and may not have the ability to secure their weapons, is not only unwise but could increase the amount of weapons in the region and exacerbate the terrorist threat to the U.S. and our allies.”
Various terrorist and sectarian forces in Syria are committing unimaginable massacres including beheading people, raping Alawite and Christian women, killing children for alleged blasphemy, killing Christian and Sunni Muslim holy men, phoning parents of captured soldiers and then killing them slowly, cutting up Syrian soldiers, brutally murdering women and then throwing them down holes in the ground – and other barbaric acts. Most of these crimes are being filmed by terrorist forces in Syria because they are proud of butchering and because it will entice more Gulf petrodollars. It is time to stop this madness and for Western and Gulf powers to be held accountable for their actions otherwise democracy and accountability means zilch.
Vojin Joksimovich in the book called The Revenge of the Prophet comments that “Osama Bin Laden saw a great opportunity in Bosnia and established a base of operations in Europe against Al Qaeda’s true enemy, the U.S. The Afghan Jihad and the Gulf War combined to produce fertile ground for 9/11. However, Bosnia became the direct springboard for 9/11, the Madrid train bombings and probably London.” Page 298 – The Revenge of the Prophet
Likewise, in another Modern Tokyo Times article it was stated that “Shaul Shay in his book Islamic Terror and the Balkans comments about the connection between the Madrid bombing, Al Qaida camps in Bosnia and the Sarajevo connection and clearly these ratlines were aided by the Bill Clinton Administration either covertly or by turning a blind eye – either way, part of the responsibility belongs to the Bill Clinton administration. Therefore, in Madrid the former leader of America should be held accountable alongside leaders in the Bosnian Muslim leadership for allowing this.”
Shaul Shay states that “Dragomir Adnan, the commander of the police in Sofia, Bulgaria stated during a press conference that the terrorists who had perpetrated the attacks on Madrid trains had been trained in Al Qaida camps in Bosnia-Herzegovina and that eleven of the suspects had reached Spain via Sarajevo. He also claimed that the explosives used for the preparation of the bombs had been manufactured in Bosnia.” (Page 167 – Islamic Terror and the Balkans)
Syria today is fighting for its survival against many forces of darkness which will use any means possible in order to crush this secular nation. In the last thirty plus years al-Qaeda and various different terrorist forces have gained because of major Gulf and Western nations. After September 11, it was hoped that America wouldn’t drag itself back down again by selling democracy to geopolitical self interests and Gulf petrodollars. However, the terrorist switch is on once more therefore Syria is on the frontline against extremely sinister forces which seek compliance by supporting chaos.
