According to Doctor Natasha Underhill, an expert on terrorism in the Middle East from Nottingham Trent University/UK, the Islamic State could be on the verge of a breakthrough in Syria:
Militants for the terrorist group this week seized huge phosphate mines depriving the Syrian regime of a desperately-needed revenue source… she said the latest development does put Syria – and the rule of brutal dictator Bashar Al-Assad – on the verge of disintegration. The lecturer at Nottingham Trent University told Express.co.uk: “It’s really a power play for Islamic State. The mines are one of the last things Syria could make money from. “It will push the state closer towards failure which is now almost inevitable. “Syria is at crisis point. It’s already seen as a crisis state. We are just one or two more key events away from failure as we know it. “With the situation as it is we could wake up tomorrow and the whole state would have changed.”
But Syria will only be the beginning:
Dr Underhill said if Syria falls into hands of ISIS completely it will give the terrorists more legitimacy in the eyes of those in the region and encourage similar Islamic extremist groups to pledge their support, much as Boko Haram has in Africa. She said: “Islamic State has a political strand to their organisation and when it moves into an area sets up local government-type institutions… “Once ISIS takes over a significant piece of land – and we’ve seen this in Afghanistan where the Taliban took over 90 per cent of the country – then that gives them legitimacy – not in the wider world but in the direct area, which is their target audience.”… She added, while ISIS has shown it is willing to focus on a core area rather than seek to expand at a vast rate, neighbouring Jordan should still be aware of the likelihood of an invasion.
And then Dr Underhill comes with a stupid piece of advice, typical for British imperialists 2.0, of the NWO variety:
The Middle East expert added allied nations would now be seriously considering “boots on the ground” in the region.
Editor: there were 100,000+ US boots on the ground in Iraq and see what came from that: the rise of the Islamic State. The only realistic way to turn things to the better in Western eyes (not our eyes) is that the Anglos invent a time machine, with which they can turn back the clock to the mid-nineties, when US plotters of the PNAC variety conspired to organized 9/11, in order to create the terror meme, the necessary pretext to invade countries at will and execute the 1996 Clean Break strategy. What these PNAC idiots did not foresee was:
- the rise of Sunni Islamic Fundamentalism after the removal of solid secular Baath dictators
- the rise of the internet to neutralize Western mass media and ridicule the PNAC NWO clowns and organize a 9/11-truth movement.
Sure you can put boots on the ground, again. Will cost you a few trillion $, again. You won’t get UN Security Council backing, again. And then? You should listen to what one of the chief architects of the Iraq invasion and arch warmonger Edward Luttwak had to say, during the last days of the occupation:
A basic fact has to be established before any discussion about the Iraqi issue. And that is that the Americans defeated Saddam Hussein, but they did not really occupy Iraq. There is no. American and coalition forces have criss crossed Mesopotamia in all possible directions, but at no time did they hold more than a fraction of the territory of Iraq, and they do not hold any at present, except for parts of a few cities and some isolated bases. But that’s all. In most of Iraq there is no permanent control by western forces; and there cannot be. The total number of US troops that we have sent to fight this war is clearly insufficient, indeed it is ridiculously small for the task of occupying such a large country.
See, it is hopeless. What the US should do is prepare for a giant housing program in Upstate New York to take in millions of Israeli refugees after Palestine will be completely surrounded by warriors from the Islamic State and Turkey. The EU and Russia will be glad to help with the evacuation and at the same ensure that these Israeli nukes will be in safe hands, European hands that is, not the extremities of the rascals of the Islamic Sate.
