Just a couple of days into their airstrikes against ISIS, ISIS
has been left decimated. Why haven't we seen the same results with our supposed attacks on ISIS that have now been on going for over a year?
The head of the Russian parliament’s international affairs committee, Alexei Pushkov posted on Twitter on Friday and said the United States is not bombing ISIS.
Alexei Pushkov said on Twitter that “McCain accused us of striking out at US-trained insurgents…
However, since they have either run away or joined al-Qaeda, hitting them is a mission impossible.”
“The US-led coalition spent a whole year pretending they were striking ISIL (ISIS) targets but where are the results of these strikes?” Pushkov asked during and interview with France’s Europe 1 Radio.
Earlier this week the Lebanese Prime Minister Tammam Salam said there “is clearly no seriousness” to the war against ISIS. He added the objective is not eliminating the Islamic State but rather an effort by the West to “force their presence” in the region and worsen the situation there.
“From the very outset, this air campaign has NOT been directed against ISIS,” writes Michel Chossudovsky. “The evidence confirms that the Islamic State is not the target. Quite the opposite.”
“The air raids are intended to destroy the economic infrastructure of Iraq and Syria.”
Documents compiled by Russia show the United States and its partners in the Gulf states and Turkey supported the Islamic State and planned to establish a Salafist principality in Syria.
The Pentagon has admitted it “helped build ISIS” and armed the group with weapons transferred from Benghazi, Libya.
