It’s a funny old world isn’t it. Or maybe our top politicians just don’t seem to be able to make their minds up. But in the wake of UK Prime Minister David Cameron’s visit to US President Barrack Obama; they’ve come out with a joint statement that they want to dismantle al-Qaeda (al-Qaida). In fact they went so far as to suggest they’ve already done it.
Meanwhile, in another part of the world, the US and Russia are not have a very fun time diplomatically speaking. I seems Russia isn’t about to play ball on unilateral UN action against Syria (neither is China). Russia seems to make a fairly alarming point that NOBODY IN THE UK OR US PRESS wants to talk about overtly.
Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Syrian authorities “bear a huge share of responsibility” but insisted opposition fighters and extremists including al-Qaida (al-Qaeda) are also committing violent and terrorist acts.
Wait up! Isn’t that the same bunch of guys we are “dismantling” in Afghanistan?
Is “dismantling” another word for “airlifting” in the CIA vernacular? It all sort of rings a bell back to the early fighting in Afghanistan when the US authorised the evacuation of Taliban and al-Qaeda (al-Qaida) forces from a region being attacked by coalition forces. It’s subsequently been called the “Airlift of Evil”. But in case you think wasn’t authorised, let me remind you that the US had air superiority in the region. Any plane seeing flying in or out of the area would have been immediately fired upon.
It’s a sorry state of affairs when the press are so in line with the politicians that nobody dare speak out against supporting the very people we are meant to be defeating in order to take out somebody in competition with us. Talk about the enemy of my enemy…..
