The media is selling fear of beheadings to the public. Syria is destroyed and so is Iraq, principally at the hands of the U.S. military machine and western partners. Oil pipelines and weapons deals are the reasons for this monstrosity that knows no end in its brutal occupation. The U.S. sold arms to Nouri al-Maliki to back his corrupt regime and backed his forces with drone strikes against ISIS, even though the American CIA also previously supported jihadist Sunni rebels, including the ISIS—procuring weapons for these groups, to attack the government of Bashar al-Assad. Hundreds of thousands of civilians are now dead in Syria—murdered by U.S. backed proxies. The ISIS are now in control of oil fields in Iraq thanks in no small part to U.S. weaponry, sold to Maliki, which they obtained after taking over major areas of the country.

The colonial powers and western energy conglomerates/capitalist investors are now dividing the spoils of oil resources for NATO geopolitical war machine control. U.S. bombing of Iraq to impose ethnic borders between the Kurds, the Sunnis and the Shias is the U.S. military strategy to make this war-ridden land safe for U.S. multinational oil investors who supply a never ending flow of oil to the global NATO war machine.

Even though the real reason for conducting brutalizing airstrikes against Iraq is to re-enforce American domination, the U.S. imperial corporate apparatus via the deceptive mass media sold the sustained vicious bombing to the American people as humanitarian intervention to save the Yazadi people and to avenge the deaths of two slain/beheaded western reporters. The military-industrial-corporate media complex will continue to foment war tensions through its success at demonizing enemies on numerous fronts—including Putin, who they claim is invading Ukraine, and the Ukrainian separatists who will not bend to Washington’s right-wing Neo-Nazi regime in Kiev.

The ISIS is a 100 percent product of the U.S. proxy destabilization policy against Syria, and their command of Iraq’s oil fields in Mosul, along with this group’s beheading of journalists, both function as convenient war propaganda to anger the American public and fuel the U.S. airstrike machine that benefits the capitalist armaments industry since Americans subconsciously believe as a result of their national security indoctrination that the petroleum of the Middle East is U.S. property serving “core interests” and protecting their “way of life.”
