Game of Thrones: Saudis Funding Taliban as Trump Gives Nod to Increased Military Support for Afghans

As Trump plans increasing and prolonging U.S. troop commitment to Afghanistan, it is worth noting that–surprise, surprise–the Saudis are funding the Taliban, much as they have done with Al-Qaeda.


FTR #880 The ISIS File: The Myth of the Moderates

Continuing our analysis of an overlapping series of massive covert operations in the Earth Island utilizing Muslim Brotherhood-based Sunni jihadists and intersecting Pan-Turkist elements, we analyze the genesis of ISIS. Stemming from a covert operation in which elements of CIA, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar and the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood are operating in Southern Turkey to enable jihadists in Syria, ISIS appears to be something of a Frankenstein’s monster. Envisioned as a Salafist principality in Eastern Syria to destabilize the Assad regime, the Islamic State used AQI (Al-Qaeda in Iraq) infrastructure to spread into Iraq, threatening the “gains” of the misguided U.S. invasion of that country. Now, this Islamist Frankenstein’s monster is attacking the West, driving the political spectrum in Europe and the United States rightward. That reaction, in turn, is fueling Muslim alienation to the delight and benefit of ISIS. Program Highlights Include: ISIS chief Al-Baghradi’s “former” membership in the Muslim Brotherhood; the decisive role of Chechen fighters in ISIS; the alliance of UNA-UNSO fighters (Pravy Sektor) in Chechnya and Georgia; ISIS’s use of Bitcoin to stash their financial assets; ISIS’s use of an encrypted Berlin-based messaging service for its communiques; an oblique endorsement of ISIS by the chief of Turkish intelligence; review of the re-direction of the anti-Soviet jihadist effort in Afghanistan to anti-Russian combat in Chechnya; review of Zbigniew Brzezinski’s endorsement of using jihadists against Russia in the Caucasus and China in central Asia.


FTR #879 Further Update on Pan-Turkism, Islamism and the Earth Island Boogie

As the title indicates, this broadcast continues analysis of the growing confluence of Muslim-Brotherhood dominated Islamism and Pan-Turkist elements, this against the background of the mounting hostilities overtaking the region. After repeating a quote from Zbigniew Brzezinski read by Elizabeth Gould in FTR #872 proposing to use Islamists to destabilize post-Cold War Russia and China, we highlight an article detailing Turkish military support for Turkmen militia and overlapping Nusra Front (al-Qaeda) and ISIS combatants in Syria. Turkey’s recent shootdown of a Russian combat jet appears to have resulted from Turkish air cover for the so-called “moderates” in Syria. Much of the first half of the program consists of analysis of an article examining how U.S. military interventions of recent decades have helped install Islamist regimes in place of secular ones–this in areas that had once been part of the Ottoman Empire. As noted by the author, Germany is a quiet, principal benefactor of the U.S. action. In our series about the so-called “Arab Spring.” (we call it “The Muslim Brotherhood Spring”), we noted that Erdogan’s Turkey was not a “moderate” Islamic democracy at all, but a Muslim Brotherhood autocracy evolved from the al-Taqwa milieu. Even many Turkish citizens are now openly charging Erdogan with being a fascist. As we see Grey Wolf elements working in Syria, Asia and (in all probability) in Ukraine, we should not forget that Turkey is also a NATO country. The program concludes with a re-broadcast of FTR #59, highlighting the Grey Wolves’ role as the Turkish “Stay Behind” forces. Operation Stay Behind was a NATO program to use fascist formations as reserve guerilla forces, to be used either in the event of World War III or against a democratically-elected leftist government in Europe. Not surprisingly, the Stay Behind forces often precipitated terror attacks and assassinations in their host countries.


FTR #878 Update on Pan-Turkism, Islamism and the Earth Island Boogie

In recent years, we have noted growing confluence between Muslim Brotherhood-based Islamism and Pan-Turkist elements. In addition to their utility as proxy warriors against the former Soviet Union, the former Yugoslavia, Russia and contemporary China, the Muslim Brotherhood is viewed with favor in the West because of its corporatist economics. As events in Ukraine, the Middle East and Asia continue to heat up, the Islamist/Pan-Turkist connection appears to be solidifying. The “cement” that is bringing them together appears to be elements of Western intelligence, the Underground Reich/transnational corporate faction of the CIA in particular. We are now seeing Islamist/Pan-Turkist combatants active all around the Earth Island: Grey Wolf-linked combatants working with elements of CIA in Syria, backed by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar and having executed a Russian pilot who bailed out of his jet shot down by a Turkish F-16; Chechen/ISIS-linked fighters in Ukraine fighting under Pravy Sektor command; Crimean Tatars backed by Turkey and collaborating with Pravy Sektor sabotaging the Crimean power grid, water supply and road traffic and Grey Wolves working with the al-Qaeda-linked Uighurs in China (apparently authoring a terrorist bombing in Thailand directed against Chinese tourists). With Pan-Turkist Islamists fighting against Russia in Ukraine and against China in fossil-fuel-rich Xinjiang Province and Thailand, it is difficult not to see the hand of the Underground Reich faction of CIA at work. Much of the program consists of a re-broadcast of part of AFA #14 talking about the former World Anti-Communist League and the powerful Pan-Turkist element within the Anti-Bolshevik Bloc of Nations. Program Highlights Include: Pan-Turkist collaboration with the Third Reich and the pre-war Promethean League; National Action Party founder Alparsan Turkes’ agitation on behalf of Turkish entry into World War II on the side of the Axis; Turkes’ role as a key Turkish representative to NATO; the Turkish government of Tayyip Erdogan’s overt support for the Crimean Tatars as well as the Turkmen militia in Syria; Pan-Turkist SS veteran Ruzy Nazar’s work for elements of CIA and his presence at the WACL conference in Dallas in 1984 as a representative of the ABN.


FTR #782 All’s Well That’s Orwell, Part 2: The Ministry of Truth and the Ukrainian Crisis, Part 2 (Schmemann Uber Alles)

The broadcast highlights the Orwellian nature of U.S. media coverage of the events in the Ukraine. In particular, the disgraceful behavior of The New York Times–the CIA’s #1 propaganda asset–is set forth here. The whitewashing of the Nazi and fascist nature of the government in the Ukraine and casual dismissal of accurate Russian claims as “propaganda” by the “Gray Lady” as the Times is known, has set the tone for the rest of our media to resonate with the dictates of our Ministry of Truth. We wonder about the influence in the Times’ coverage of Serge Schmemann, as well as the possible future role of Islamist and Pan-Turkist elements in the crisis.


FTR #723 Doin’ the Earth Island Boogie

Are GOP/oil industry/Muslim Brotherhood elements undermining Obama’s foreign policy vis a vis Russia? Are these same jihadist elements stirring unrest in Russia and Central Asia? Are they working with the Turkish government?


Islamist Elements Behind Violence, Kyrgystan Government Says

Comment: As noted previously, the towns of Osh and Jalal-Abad in Kyrgystan, in addition to being flashpoints of lethal Uzbek/Kyrgyz ethnic tensions, are epicenters of activity for Hizb Ut-Tahrir, a Muslim Brotherhood affiliate.
