ISIL will vanish if US admits to funding it: Analyst


The best way for US President Barack Obama to get rid of the issue of ISIL would be for him to acknowledge Washington’s funding of the terrorist group in Syria and Iraq, an analyst writes for Press TV.

“The best way to stop ISIL would be for Obama to…confess that US forces and its proxies, at the instigation of the neocon Zionists, created, armed, trained, and funded ISIL, in order to sow chaos and destruction…throughout the Middle East,” Kevin Barrett wrote in a column for the Press TV website.

The analyst said Obama’s confession that the ISIL is a “manufactured enemy” will help the US president to “undercut the series of neoconservative false flags that are leading towards planetary nuclear destruction.”

Barrett said Obama would not have threatened to “bomb the Syrian government, ISIL’s biggest enemy” had he been “sincere” in his “stated intent to forge a broad regional coalition” against the Takfiri group.

“Instead,” he added, “it (Washington) would be working with President al-Assad’s government, and the other governments of the region, as well as Russia, in a long-term effort to address the real causes of the rise of ISIL.”

The analyst said the US threat to bomb Syria under pretext of annihilating the ISIL is “yet another preposterous false-flag scenario.”

On September 12, the US president said Washington is assembling an international coalition to “snuff out” the ISIL terrorist group.

The ISIL terrorists, of whom many are foreign militants, control large parts of Syria’s east and north. ISIL also sent its Takfiri militants into Iraq in June, seizing large swathes of land straddling the border between Syria and Iraq.

Senior Iraqi officials have blamed Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and some Persian Gulf Arab states for the growing terrorism in their country.

The terrorist group has links with Saudi intelligence and is believed to be indirectly supported by the Israeli regime.
