US providing arms to al-Qaeda and isil in Syria to please Israel:
An American political expert says the United States is arming isisl, al-Qaeda and other militant groups in Syria as part of efforts to fragment the conflict-plagued Arab nation and please the Israeli regime, Press TV reports.
“The United States of America is currently under state of emergency that’s been going on since 9/11, fighting this so-called ‘War on Terror’ all over the world and having shredded the Constitution and invaded several countries, murdering people in drone attacks all over the world,” Kevin Barret – a member of the Scientific Panel for the Investigation of 9/11 and a member of the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance – told Press TV on Saturday.
He added, “All of this is ostensibly because of a terrible state of emergency focused on the threat posed by al-Qaeda and yet the US and its allies are arming al-Qaeda in Syria.”
Barret then elaborated on Washington’s motive for providing arms to militants in Syria, and said, “The obvious answers are that first the US is basically a tool of Israeli foreign policy and the Israelis are following a known plan to break up the Middle East into small powerless countries.”
“And secondly, al-Qaeda is basically a psychological operation by the Western imperial powers designed to undermine the long-term aspirations of the people of the Middle East,” he pointed out.
US Air Force General Philip Breedlove, President Barack Obama’s nominee to become NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander Europe, has called for lethal military assistance to militants in Syria fighting against President Bashar al-Assad’s government.
“If we could assure that the weapons were going to the right people and that we would not have to face them in the future, that would be helpful to removing the regime [in Syria],” Breedlove said at his Senate confirmation hearing on April 11.
The crisis in Syria began in March 2011, and many people, including large numbers of soldiers and security personnel, have been killed in the violence.
The Syrian government says that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the militants are foreign nationals.
