Military Blogger Alleges U.S. Now Aids ISIS to Oust Assad


Eric Zuesse

(RINF) – A highly informed anonymous military blogger, who goes by the name of “bernhard” and blogs at his widely followed “Moon of Alabama” website, is alleging, in a post October 12th (“The ’Salafist Principality’ — ISIS Paid Off To Leave Mosul And To Take Deir Ezzor?”), that the Obama Administration has negotiated with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, and with Saudi Prince Salman (who is the decision-maker in Saudi military matters), to provide safe passage into the large Syrian city of Deir Es Zor, for the ISIS jihadists who have been occupying the city of Mosul in Iraq.

On September 17th, U.S. and UK jets had bombed the compound of Syrian government troops who were fighting to oust jihadists from that City, and 62 Syrian soldiers were killed, and over a hundred were injured, in that U.S.-led bombing attack. Subsequently, Syria brought more troops to that location and retook control there, but if and when the ISIS jihadists from Mosul take control there, the forces of Bashar al-Assad will be beaten not by U.S. bombs, this time, but by ISIS jihadists.

“Bernhard” cites a tweet on the morning of October 12th from the celebrated Syrian historian and journalist Nizar Nayouf, reporting (“berhard” calls it a ‘rumor’ because Nayouf relies upon ’Sources in London’): “Breaking news: Sources in #London say: #US&#Saudi_Arabia concluded an agreement to let #ISIS leave #Mosul secretly & safely to #Syria.” However, Nayouf was a democracy-activist whom the Assad regime imprisoned in 1991 and released on the date of Pope John Paul II’s visit to Syria on 6 May 2001; so, any prejudices that Nayouf might have would be against not for Assad, and for not against the forces (such as Obama and the Sauds) who are trying to overthrow Assad. Only time can tell whether or not ISIS from Mosul will show up in Deir Es Zor, but Nayouf is reporting that that’s the deal.

    No shit Sherlock, either you have been living in an parallel universe for some decades or is deliberately drooling something just to say anything, shaking whatever out of their insane reality.
    I call it an parallel reality, where the idiots after decades of propaganda and lies, believe everything and spoon feeds them self with more propaganda and have from then altered their reality to an pure world of paranoia and fear of everything.

    And now, the Yemenit ugh…… missile attack, witch didn’t even reach the boat/s, but the Yankees fired back, and hit some radar posts, to make the excuse for continuing intervention in Yemen even just a couple of days after their hideously “apology” of the Saudi mass slaughtering, while the western freak show whines about Aleppo.

    I know there are additional forces in the African region, either Eritrea or Sudan, since they are among the puppets the Imperial banana republic have to deal with, rotten creeps all of them.
    Even Egypt is drooling.
    This attach was and is an for runner ops to make sure the invasion force from the African horn will not be hindered, and I think that is cumming relatively soon, some few comments is highlighting this and I agree, hide the real cause, the Yankeeboys invasion of Yemen.
    I hope some desent people feeds the Houtis with real man pads and missiles that have the capasity to do what this, hehe, RPGs huh Yankees, or was is just as I belive, Nothing, just an meaninless lie to cover up their own intentions, and I dont belive an word from whatever Yankee shit head that drools something officialy.

    And on top of it, the magic word Iran, witch the well-pissers and neoCONs love to hate and have managed to attach the Iranians to everything.
    Yea, what about Israel, UssA, Brits, the French, and so on guarding the sea, and feeds the sick scums in Ryad with weponds, but somehow, Iran is The bogeyman.
    I know automatically any article I read when this narratives are in it, fake, and I usually dont even bother to read the rest, since its dis-info, bad dis-info, and some really just plain good old fashion crap.

    I still dont know why Putin is pussyfooting the Westeness, what, just kick in their face, and give them hell.
    In Ukraina, just grind the Orcs to dust, pulverize the land from the borders of the free republics to Kiev, pulverize everything f…. inch, leave nothing behind.
    The Orcs never learn, until they burn, stupid creeps.

      Putin knows how MANIPULATED the American People are by the MSM and how easy it would be for the Ziocon war mongers to get stupid Americans to support a nuclear war. How many times have you heard some Jacka$$ say NUKE THEM without ever considering the consequences? Americans have been DUMBED DOWN by the MSM.

    • desertspeaks

    • TellTheTruth-2

      Dang .. good thing I read your post before I posted mine .. they would have been exactly the same. If we want to defeat ISIS we only need to get rid of the CIA and the proxy groups they run.
