If Russian soldiers are dying in Iraq to extirpate ISIS, it’s clear that the HillyBillys are chock fulla shit… as per usual…
Taking to the Sunday show circuit, US Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) ran roughshod over any semblance of logic or foreign policy coherence by associating Syrian President Bashar al-Assad with Daesh/ISIS to make the fantastical cognitive leap that Russia “founded” the terror group. On Sunday morning, the Clinton campaign established a new low in American political thought. They somewhat miraculously found a way to link their anti-Russian propaganda campaign, one that calls for sanctions against Russia, despite that there’s no evidence that Russia has any link to the WikiLeaks file-dump exposing corruption in the Democratic Primary, to the latest topic of the hour, the Daesh/ISIS terror network.
Not since the Bush II administration have the American people been bombarded with such circuitous fits of repetitive illogical statements… at that time, it was macabre insinuations that somehow Saddam Hussein had links to the 9/11 terror attacks to secure a blank cheque for war… for the purpose of personal political gain at the risk of compromising not only national, but international security. A top mouthpiece for the Clinton campaign when they want to offload incendiary statements into the public sphere to test-poll their efficacy, Senator McCaskill began her interview on Fox News Sunday criticising Trump’s comments on Daesh calling them, “disrespectful to the military that is out there fighting ISIS every day”, she suggested that the Republican lacks the requisite patriotism for the Oval office. She went on to claim:
It was also important to realise that [Syrian President Bashar al] Assad, by what he did in his country, allowed ISIS to move into Syria, get strongholds, and recruit. That was the work and support of [President V V] Putin, who is Trump’s best buddy. So, you can say Trump and his friend Putin are the founders of ISIS.
McCaskill’s assertion directly conflicts with a declassified Pentagon memo, released last May, which exposed that al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI) and the Islamic State of Iraq spearheaded the American-backed anti-Assad coalition at the time; they soon coalesced to form the Daesh terror network known colloquially as ISIS. At the time, President Obama referred to these “opposition rebels” as “the legitimate representative of the Syrian people”. The report also posited the formation of a Daesh “caliphate” in Syria, stating:
There’s the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist principality in Eastern Syria (Hasak and Der Zor) and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want.
An earlier paragraph enumerated these supporting powers as “Western Countries, the Gulf States, and Turkey”. As of August 2016, there were 20 officially confirmed dead in the Russian forces on the battlefields of Syria. They died to prevent the Daesh terror network and so-called “moderate rebels” factions (spearheaded on the ground by former al-Qaeda affiliate al-Nusra Front) from overrunning Syria. Senator McCaskill questioned how American soldiers in the field of fight feel when Trump criticises Obama administration foreign policy, but one can only imagine the horrendous magnitude of her insult to the families of the Russian soldiers slain trying to protect the world from radical Jihadists.
