A political commentator says the US administration, which claims to be committed to religious freedom, is supporting murderous, “religious” fanatics in the world.
“There are no rules or boundaries, and the worst part of all is the fact that the United States funds and fuels the violent acts of religious extremists without batting an eyelash, and it is costing the world dearly,” Tim King wrote in an article for the Press TV website.
Describing the US claims as a “ruse and a bloody lip for humanity,” he added, “In truth, the American government is doing, and has been doing, everything in its range of power to contaminate the world with its political and corporate greed.”
The political analyst said that “the most vicious and unnerving US support of religious extremists” goes to the militants in the Middle East to “destabilize” regional governments.
He said the US political system “seems bent on spiking the flames of unrest wherever an opportunity exists. Innocent victims suffer day in and day out in an age of amazing technology and communication, and American politicians cry for more war, knowing they will never have to participate in the warring conflicts that arouses the politicians in Washington D.C.”
King referred to the US supports for Takfiri militants in Syria, where the US-backed militants turned “Damascus, one of the world’s oldest and culturally rich cities” into a “bloodbath” for religious ethnicities.
This seems extremely contrary to the mission of a nation which claims to be built on the concept of religious freedom, he concluded
On June 20, informed Jordanian officials said that US military instructors trained Takfiri militants of the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) at a secret base in Jordan in 2012.
The officials, who were not identified, revealed to American news website WorldNetDaily (WND) that dozens of ISIL members received training as part of covert aid to militants fighting to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
The source told WND that at least one of the ISIL training camps is in the vicinity of Turkish air base, Incirlik, which houses American personnel and equipment. After being trained in Turkey, thousands of ISIL militants sneaked into Iraq to wreak havoc on the country.
The Takfiri group, whose leader was released from a US-run prison in Iraq before the American forces withdrew from the country, has overrun a number of cities and towns in northern and northeastern Iraqi provinces in past days.
