The U.S. Is Supporting the Most Violent Muslim Terrorists In Order to Wage War for Oil

The Government – Which Has Taken Away Our Liberties and Destroyed Our Prosperity to Fight An Endless War On Terror – Has Been Arming, Funding and Otherwise Backing the Very Terrorists Who Are Carrying Out Most of the Attacks

Sunni Muslims commit more terrorist acts worldwide than any other group.  For example, the National Counterterrorism Center’s 2011 Report on Terrorism found that:

Sunni extremists accounted for the greatest number of terrorist attacks and fatalities for the third consecutive year.   More than 5,700 incidents were attributed to Sunni extremists, accounting for nearly 56 percent of all attacks and about 70 percent of all fatalities. Among this perpetrator group, al-Qa‘ida (AQ) and its affiliates were responsible for at least 688 attacks that resulted in almost 2,000 deaths, while the Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan conducted over 800 attacks that resulted in nearly 1,900 deaths.  Secular, political, and anarchist groups were the next largest category of perpetrators, conducting 2,283 attacks with 1,926 fatalities, a drop of 5 percent and 9 percent, respectively, from 2010.

(Thankfully, the percentage of Muslim terror attacks in the U.S. is relatively small).

Saudi Arabia is the center of the Sunni branch of Islam.  It is also the center of the most violent and radical sect of Islam … the “Wahhabis” (also called “Salafis”).   But the U.S. has long supported the Madrassa schools within Saudi Arabia which teach radical Wahabi beliefs.

Indeed, the U.S. has directly inserted itself into a sectarian war between the two main Islamic sects, backing the “Sunnis” and attacking the “Shiites” (also called “Shia”). See this, this and this.

For example, American political leaders have been very close to Saudi (i.e. Sunni) leaders for decades:

Obama is no different:

Why?  Because of Saudi oil. (Virtually all geopolitics are based on oil and other hydrocarbons.)

Indeed, (1) the Co-Chair of the Congressional Inquiry into 9/11 and former Head of the Senate Intelligence Committee, and (2) a former 6-year congressman and MSNBC talk show host have both said that – even if the Saudi government was behind 9/11 – we need Saudi oil too much to do anything about it.

Our backing of the most violent branch of Sunni Muslims has had real consequences:

  • Our backing of Sunnis in Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia led to 9/11*
  • Our backing of Sunni extremists in Libya led to attacks on our embassies in Libya and Tunisia

And McClatchy interviewed an Al Qaeda terrorist fighting against the Syrian government – with U.S. backing – as saying:

When we finish with Assad, we will fight the U.S.!

Do you still doubt that the U.S. is supporting Sunni terrorists?

The U.S. National Security Adviser admitted that the U.S. created, organized and armed the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan – including Bin Laden and his lieutenants – to fight the Soviets.  The Mujahadeen are predominately Sunni.    The Mujahadeen eventually morphed into Al Qaeda, which is a Sunni organization.

During various times and places, the U.S. has also backed the Muslim Brotherhood … another Sunni group.

In addition, the American government has supported:

  • Sunni MEK terrorists in Iran
  • The brutal Sunni government in Bahrain as it crushes its majority Shia population whenever it pushes for democratic reform

Pulitzer prize winning journalist Seymour Hersh reported in 2007:

In Lebanon, the [Bush] Administration has cooperated with Saudi Arabia’s government, which is Sunni, in clandestine operations that are intended to weaken Hezbollah, the Shiite organization that is backed by Iran. The U.S. has also taken part in clandestine operations aimed at Iran and its ally Syria. A by-product of these activities has been the bolstering of Sunni extremist groups that espouse a militant vision of Islam and are hostile to America and sympathetic to Al Qaeda.

And the “rebels” in Syria who we’ve been supporting are Al Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood.

The New York Times reports this week:

In Syria’s largest city, Aleppo, rebels aligned with Al Qaeda control the power plant, run the bakeries and head a court that applies Islamic law. Elsewhere, they have seized government oil fields, put employees back to work and now profit from the crude they produce.

Across Syria, rebel-held areas are dotted with Islamic courts staffed by lawyers and clerics, and by fighting brigades led by extremists. Even the Supreme Military Council, the umbrella rebel organization whose formation the West had hoped would sideline radical groups, is stocked with commanders who want to infuse Islamic law into a future Syrian government.

Nowhere in rebel-controlled Syria is there a secular fighting force to speak of.

Do you get it?

The government has taken away our liberties and destroyed our prosperity in order to fight an endless war on terror.  Americans have become the most spied upon people in history. Never-ending war has destroyed our economy.

And yet the government has been arming, funding and otherwise backing the very terrorists who are carrying out the biggest percentage of terror attacks.

As we noted last year:

In the name of “fighting Al Qaeda or associated forces” or those who “support” those bad guys, the U.S. government has authorized:

In other words, the government has shredded our constitution and destroyed our freedom and liberties in order to fight Al Qaeda and associated forces.

And yet the government is itself supporting – with money, arms, and logistical support – Al Qaeda and associated forces in a number of nations.

People who believe that we’re in a “new post-9/11 reality” should remember that everything happening now started before 9/11, and that current U.S. policy towards the Middle East and North Africa was determined many decades ago.   It’s not just the Neocons who planned this strategy. Jimmy Carter’s National Security Adviser helped to map out the battle plan for Eurasian petroleum resources over a decade ago, and Obama is clearly continuing the same agenda.

Sadly – by any measure – the U.S. … all to justify our geopolitical goals.

  • Great article, George. You are a great patriot. Tarpley has been saying for some time that Obama might lose big-time on this scandal, and I hope he does. I have seen picture of the Al Qaeda flag flying on the rebel side in Syria. All you have to do to get the guys over at Zero Hedge to back the article is go after Obama rather than push the Bush pictures because they are mostly Republican Financial types. As far as security and foreign policy goes, Obama is just another Bush, although I wonder if he really has any say in security matters. I also agree with the poster who said it was not only control of oil the US is after – especially given your fine article that oil exports from Iraq are actually down – but to maintain the dollar as the reserve currency in the world. I mean, how are the banks, especially those in Europe, doing now days? I think the dollar and banking are the root causes of our current wars in the Middle East – that and ruling the world as the “New Jerusalem” of Apocalypse fame.

      Yes, the Al Qaeda flag does fly on the side of the Syrian Opposition. Al-Nusra (the Al-Qaeda arm of the opposition) is one of the stronger forces opposing the government. But the opposition forces are not all united, and the official opposition forces, the Free Syrian Army, are secular, without any allegiance to Al-Qaeda.

  • amerikagulag

    The US also CREATED those violent Muslim terrorists as a pretext to invade countries illegally.
    It’s also instrumental to know that the US is arming the ‘rebels’ while Israel is arming the other side. Demonstrating beyond cavil the age old tactic of arming both sides against the middle.

    There is nothing real in this conflict whatsoever. Every aspect of it is completely controlled.

  • thomas jefferson

    WAKEUP,this AIN’T got nothing to do with OIL,your watching the wrong hand,LOOK AGAIN,its all about going into countries searching for angent artifacts no one could ever look for,LOOK at what has happened in every country america has gone into,THE first thing they do is RAID the musiums,and then go searching the whole country over,ever notice “all these countries are filled with alien artifacts” and they are looking for them,JUST LIKE HITLER DID,weapons like no one can even imagine are being found in these countries,NOT to mention information about other things,LIKE GIANTS,demons, spacecraft and things that would scare the pants off most people,and everything is being taken to DENVER ,COLORADO,and hidden in the underground cities ? whats about to happen,NIBIRU,thats what,and no one knows for sure how bad the pole shift will be,and they don’t care about anything but themselves,SO GET READY,it could be as bad as the bible says……………………………….

    • Leroy

      You are a silly person. Go home, that’s enough internet for the week.

  • thisisNabeel

    This is the most loaded article ever. Sunnis make up a vast majority of the Muslims. A slight fraction of them does an extreme act and it skews the numbers between Sunnis and other sects. It’s like saying the Baptist are the trouble making Christians. Hence, America is breeding the worst type of Christians. Throw in the stats, and voila, same article different religion.

  • Leroy

    This is actually retarded. I stopped reading after US “backing of radical Sunnis” led to the Boston Bombings. You are an idiot, and this ignorance is the problem with the US. FFS.

    • Leroy

      Also, the second picture of Bush and King Abdullah is blatantly photoshopped. Not even remotely trying to hide that.

      • Jae

        Actually, I’m pretty sure it isn’t b/c I have seen the footage that these photos come from. Can’t provide link though as I watch a lot of stuff.

    • OmarJ

      why is it retarded and what information do you have to back it up?

      • Equal Treatment of Numbers

        It’s because Sunni’s are the largest sect of Islam. Of the 1.6 Billion muslims in the world Sunni’s make up 85% of them. Shia almost 15%. Therefore if we were to treat both sides equally we have to take into account their size. We’d expect to see more incidences of violence in the larger group if we just count the incidents because they are the larger group. In other words both side could be equally violent, but the larger group will have greater number of incidents of violence just because there are more of them. The only way to make a fair comparison between the groups for relative violence is to use a per capita measure. Take 5700 divided by Sunni Population, and do the same for Shia:
        X incidents of Shia Terrorism / Shia Population.

        Then you can make a comparison between the groups. The percentage they quote doesn’t really account for the size difference either because other groups can conduct terrorism that aren’t Shia or Sunni and skew the numbers.

    With America backing Sunnis, it is the SHIA who would attack America – they are being abused and squeezed out by Sunni domination, so they would be angry with America for supporting their persecutors.

    Eh? But America has also “made friendly” with Shia dominated nations -Pakistan,Yemen, Bahrain, on the other hand IRan, IRaq, and Lebanon are also heavily Shia populated,

    • Anna Nautanki Hazare

      NO Dear Pakistan is a sunni nation however its Father was a Shia…ONe One more thing among sunnis also there is a moderate faction called Barelvis/sufis….Only Wahabi also known in India as Deobandi’s are terrorist…Thanks

  • Mike

    Sunnis are a big problem, mainly because they are ignorant, and the sad thing is the US is backing them up, when they could be helping Shia’s because they are the moderate muslims, but that’s not their goal, their goal is war in the middle east, not peace, in addition, its all because of the cold war, or what is left from it, as shia’s are allies with Russia. So the US does not support who is right, but what is right for their economy, which is sad knowing how much they could help the world, if it wasn’t for human greed.

    • Anna Nautanki Hazare

      100% agree with you, Sunnis are really a big challenge for the civilized world to tackle with……We must crush them especially Wahabi/salafi (also know as Deobandi/Ahlehadis) sunnis….they are the real threat to this peace loving world……..thanks

  • Anant

    An eye opening article. Must be shared with the US populace so that they realize what is going on with their tax money.

  • Kevin

    And we’ve been doing it since Reagan!

  • st725

    As a middle Eastern Christian, I can tell you that the Shia’s, overall, are a bigger problem. The Sunni’s, with the exception to the Wahabi’s, are more moderate and tend to be more educated.

  • andrewp111

    The best thing for the USA is if the Sunni and Shiite fanatics kill each other down to the rats and mice. It is only too bad that one side might win.

    • yoona

      would you say that if two of your family get murdered “mine was” (((just))) because of their shia belief (following the prophet descendants” just like what they did to the whole descendants!

  • streamfortyseven
  • Diyaa`

    All sunnis are not wahhabis or salafis but most of them are adopting it just because it is coming from Saudia Arabia … most sunnis are peace loving but their beliefs make them more prone to fall for the wahhabi agenda. So even though it is wrong to say that Sunnis are dangerous Muslims as one should rather be using the term ‘salafi’ for the ‘dangerous Muslims’ but one cant help but notice that a great majority of Sunni Muslims in the Gulf countries have so fallen for wahhabism that they’re either careless about or somehow justify the actions of ISIS.

  • JP

    Russia should Nuke Saudis out, for global peace with its allies in Syria, Iran, Israel, etc as first order of global business, and take over the Oil assets to secure global peace. Then second order of terrorists can be dealt with.
