America Has Switched Sides: Now Backs Al Qaeda and Nazis

Why Did America Switch Sides?

America fought the Nazis in World War II and Al Qaeda since 2001. But – as hard as it is to believe – our government has now switched sides. William Blum writes:

In Libya, in Syria, and elsewhere the United States has been on the same side as the al-Qaeda types….

In Ukraine the United States is on the same side as the neo-Nazi types, who – taking time off from parading around with their swastika-like symbols and calling for the death of Jews, Russians and Communists – on May 2 burned down a trade-union building in Odessa, killing scores of people and sending hundreds to hospital; many of the victims were beaten or shot when they tried to flee the flames and smoke; ambulances were blocked from reaching the wounded. Try and find an American mainstream media entity that has made a serious attempt to capture the horror.


[Obama] partners with jihadists and Nazis and has waged war against seven nations.

Sound like hyperbole? It’s actually true …

Backing Al Qaeda

The U.S. “switched sides” to arm and support Al Qaeda in Libya, so they would topple Gaddaffi. This misguided effort actually created a terrorist safe haven in Libya.

The same thing happened in Syria.  The Syrian rebels are mainly Al Qaeda, and the U.S. has been supporting these terrorists for years.  Indeed, as reported in the Wall Street Journal, the National and other sources, Al Qaeda’s power within the Syrian rebel forces is only growing stronger.

Rank-and-file Syrian rebels have:

In fact, the head of the Syrian rebels is also the global boss of Al Qaeda … and he is calling for fresh terrorist attacks on America. CBS News reports:

Al Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahri called has called on Muslims to continue attacking Americans on their own soil in order to “bleed” the U.S. economy.


“To keep up the hemorrhage in America’s security and military spending, we need to keep the Unites States on a constant state of alert about where and when the next strike will blow,” Zawahiri said.

Reuters noted in February 2012 that al-Zawahri is backing the Syrian rebels, and asking his followers to fight the Syrian government.  But al-Zawahri has since taken control of the main Al Qaeda rebel terrorist group in Syria: al-Nusra.

Terrorism experts at the Bipartisan Center’s Homeland Security Project (co-chaired by 9/11 Chairs Lee Hamilton and Thomas Kean) report (page 24):

A recent illustration of the fractured nature of the al-Qaeda network was provided during the spring of 2013 when Zawahiri [the global head of Al Qaeda] personally intervened to settle a dispute between Jabhat al-Nusra and al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI). Zawahiri rejected AQI’s assertion of control over al-Nusra and declared the Syrian group to be under his direction.

In doing so, Zawahiri was trying to assert control over two of al-Qaeda’s most virulent affiliates. AQI had mounted a series of spectacular attacks in Iraq over the past year, demonstrating that it was a force to be reckoned with. According to the Congressional Research Service, there were some dozen days in 2012 in which AQI carried out simultaneous multicity attacks that killed hundreds of Iraqis. And the al-Qaeda affiliate in Syria is widely acknowledged as the most effective fighting force in the war against Bashar al-Assad’s regime.

But we are supporting these murderers.  Indeed, Obama signed a special exemption to the law barring arming of terrorists.

We’re now shipping heavy weapons to the rebels such as anti-tank (“TOW” missiles) and possibly even anti-aircraft weapons

Let’s recap … Most of the Syrian “rebels” are Al Qaeda. The U.S. government has designated these guys as terrorists. Things are getting worse, not better: Al Qaeda is gaining more and more power among the rebels. The U.S., Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Israel have been backing these guys for years. Indeed, we’ve long known that most of the weapons we’re shipping to Syria are ending up in the hands of Al Qaeda. And they apparently have chemical weapons.

Summary:  We’re arming the same guys who are threatening to blow us up.

Backing Nazis

The U.S. is backing neo-Nazis in Ukraine (and see this).

These savages have already committed mass murder in broad daylight … on camera while being filmed.

The leader of the “protests” in February 2014 which ousted the president of Ukraine (Andriy Parubiy) is a neo Nazi and follower of a prominent WWII Ukrainian Nazi.

He’s now the head of national security in Ukraine.  In that role, he has organized neo-Nazi brigades to murder Russian-speaking Ukrainians en masse.

As former Associated Press and Newsweek reporter Robert Parry writes:

As resistance to Kiev’s right-wing regime expanded in the ethnic Russian east and south, the coup regime found itself unable to count on regular Ukrainian troops to fire on civilians. Thus, its national security chief Andriy Parubiy, himself a neo-Nazi, turned to the intensely motivated neo-Nazi shock troops who had been battle-tested during the coup.

These extremists were reorganized as special units of the National Guard and dispatched to the east and south to do the dirty work that the regular Ukrainian military was unwilling to do. Many of these extreme Ukrainian nationalists lionize World War II Nazi collaborator Stepan Bandera and – like Bandera – dream of a racially pure Ukraine, free of Jews, ethnic Russians and other “inferior” beings. The slur of calling the Odessa protesters Colorado beetles — as they were being burned alive — was a reference to the black-and-red colors used by the ethnic Russian resistance in the east.

Though the mainstream U.S. press either describes Parubiy simply as the interim government’s chief of national security (with no further context) or possibly as a “nationalist,” his fuller background includes his founding of the Social-National Party of Ukraine in 1991, blending radical Ukrainian nationalism with neo-Nazi symbols. Last year, he became commandant of the Maidan’s “self-defense forces.”

Then, on April 15,  after becoming the Kiev regime’s chief of national security and finding Ukrainian troops unwilling to fire on fellow Ukrainians in the east, Parubiy went on Twitter to announce, “Reserve unit of National Guard formed #Maidan Self-defense volunteers was sent to the front line this morning.”

Those National Guard forces also were reported on the ground in Odessa when the trade unions building was torched on May 2 and they showed up again in Mariupol as the police station was burned on May 9, according to a report in the New York Times on Saturday.

The neo-Nazis – under the control of Parubiy and the other Nazi-wannabes in the new Ukrainian government – have now twice committed mass murder by setting fire to buildings where Russian speakers were trying to take cover.

As Parry explains:

In Ukraine, a grisly new strategy – bringing in neo-Nazi paramilitary forces to set fire to occupied buildings in the country’s rebellious southeast – appears to be emerging as a favored tactic as the coup-installed regime in Kiev seeks to put down resistance from ethnic Russians and other opponents.

The technique first emerged on May 2 in the port city of Odessa when pro-regime militants chased dissidents into the Trade Unions Building and then set it on fire. As some 40 or more ethnic Russians were burned alive or died of smoke inhalation, the crowd outside mocked them as red-and-black Colorado potato beetles, with the chant of “Burn, Colorado, burn.” Afterwards, reporters spotted graffiti on the building’s walls containing Swastika-like symbols and honoring the “Galician SS,” the Ukrainian adjunct to the German SS in World War II.

This tactic of torching an occupied building occurred again on May 9 in Mariupol, another port city, as neo-Nazi paramilitaries – organized now as the regime’s “National Guard” – were dispatched to a police station that had been seized by dissidents, possibly including police officers who rejected a new Kiev-appointed chief. Again, the deployment of the “National Guard” was followed by burning the building and killing a significant but still-undetermined number of people inside. (Early estimates of the dead range from seven to 20.)

Other representative incidents include the Kiev-appointed governor of the Southern Ukraine region of Kheron praising Hitler as a liberator – and neo-Nazis harassing Russian World War II veterans as they sat on a bus – all on Russia’s annual day of celebrating victory over the Nazis.

Some Ukrainian police are disgusted with the brutality. As Parry notes:

The [New York] Times added … Residents who had gathered around the police station offered an account that differed from the interior minister’s. The city police, they said, were sympathetic to the pro-Russian side and had mutinied against an out-of-town chief newly installed by the interim government in Kiev.

“Armored vehicles had driven into the city to confront the rebellious police….


The Kiev’s regime’s concern that some local police forces have at best mixed loyalties has led it again to turn to the Maidan “self-defense” forces to serve as a special “Kiev-1” police force, which was dispatched to Odessa amid that city’s recent violence.

In other words, the new Ukrainian government is sending in neo-Nazi brigades to do the hatchet work that the local police refuse to carry out.

The Ukrainian neo-Nazis are also supporting Islamic terrorists.

And yet the U.S. is heavily supporting these thugs.   Once again, America has switched sides … from fighting Nazis in World War II to backing them today.

Why Are We Backing the Bad Guys More than the Good Guys?

True, our government has  backed Islamic terrorists and Nazis before.

But it has now gotten so out of hand that we seem to be backing the bad guys much more than the good guys.

As Parry writes:

Though many Americans don’t want to believe that their government would collaborate with neo-Nazis or other extremist elements, there actually has been a long history of just that.


In Central American conflicts that I covered for the Associated Press and Newsweek in the 1980s, some of the “death squads” associated with pro-U.S. regimes were drawn from neo-fascist movements allied with the far-right World Anti-Communist League.


The key to all these unsavory alliances is for the American people not to know about the real nature of these U.S. clients. In the 1980s, the Reagan administration advanced the concept of “public diplomacy” to intimidate journalists and human rights activists who dared report on the brutality of U.S.-backed forces in El Salvador and Guatemala and the CIA-trained Contra rebels in Nicaragua.

Thus, most Americans weren’t sure what to make of recurring reports about right-wing “death squads” killing priests and nuns and committing other massacres across Central America.


So, it should come as no surprise that the Kiev regime would turn to its Maidan “self-defense” forces – formed around neo-Nazi militias – to go into southern and eastern Ukraine with the purpose of burning to death ethnic Russian “insects” occupying buildings. The key is not to let the American people in on the secret.

Sadly, experts on both the left and the right agree that the U.S. has now become the world’s largest sponsor of terrorism.

    And yet, if one of us even mistakenly had anything at all to do with these same groups we could be detained indefinitely without charge or trial and even tortured or worse. We are living in the Twilight Zone.

    False, the USA created and financed both Al Qeada and the “Nazis.” JP Morgan, Standard Oil, IBM, Ford, etc or there would be no 3rd reich. After the formalities and dead bodies of WWII, we put the Nazi’s on the civilian pay roll. The sun seemed like it wouldn’t set on US Imperialism. The CIA ran drugs and trained mercenaries in Afghanistan, without the USA/House of Saud there would be no Al Qeada. Good and bad is no way to describe these things. Keep it simple and choose your favorite team. The whole point is there is no good or bad, it is an exercise in power. Get ready for violence, since historically, the state always reserves the most notorious purges for its domestic populace.

      Henry Ashby Turner has conclusively disproven the myth that AH was financed by corporate interests (this myth originated with Jewish communist Emery Reves) – he often clashed with German business interests (including the feared and dreaded IG Farben!), and Thyssen, one of his only corporate backers, was eventually thrown in a concentration camp for betraying AH. See more here:

        AH means Adolf Hitler. Can’t type that out?

    • Sandra

      You are so right, Tom! And let’s not forget the Rothschild family…the numero uno of Banksters. They financed both sides of World War II. Lots of money to make financing a war…

  • Undecider

    There was no switching sides. It’s always been the case.

  • wunsacon

    *What* did we switch from and *when*? Did we switch before or after Operation Paperclip? Before or after which of the countless coups and invasions before that?

  • colinjames71

    I would say America (the people running it anyway) has shown it’s true face. We’re just back to Gladio A, only not in the shadows, but for all to see. Why bother hiding it when you’re got am army of presstitutes to flip reality on it’s head?

  • charnk

    Bad guy vs good guys huh? No such thing. It’s our interests vs theirs. And I think if people looked objectively at American global involvement, you’d be calling the US the bad guys.

  • Roland Strauss

    The US government will do whatever to keep the military machine going. A new cold war is more than welcome.

  • Sandra

    And this is a surprise? Prescott Bush, father of George H. W. financed Hitler before and after we went to war with Germany. He also held Nazi funds in his Union Bank. Instead of being put in prison for TREASON, he was elected US Senator for Connecticut. After the war, we brought over many high-level Nazi’s like Von Braun to head up our NASA rocket program. We also had a Nazi put in charge of our biological warfare programs at Plum Island. A number of American corporations like Boeing, Lockheed- Martin, Bechtel, Ford, etc. that all made products for the Nazi war machine. In case you don’t remember, the very same war where those machines were used against our military men fighting against Hitler and his army.
    If anyone knows of a planet where I can go to get away from these evil lying hypocrites, please tell me and give me directions how to get there. I am so sick of these evil lying bastards…

    Don’t waste your time at trading forums to learn to trade these places are no good at all, I learned my lesson the hard way. Go over to the website Traders Superstore I recently found them purchase their courses and now I’m learning to trade for myself and finding it’s nowhere near as hard as I thought it was. The guy there showing how to make $500 a day through a very simple technique he developed which works! I know because I’m doing it myself, takes a little practice but if I can do it anybody can.

  • Nobel

    Give the Nobel Peace Prize to Obama. Oh, wait a minute…

  • It’s about globalism, plain and simple. The US is used like a tool, just like every other nation. Look at the shift in America over the last 10-20 years. All towards open borders and wars being fought in the name of saving humanity.

    Mjr General S Butler USMC, 2 x Congressional medal of Honor; lead several US invasions in the late 1800’s, early 1900’s. After he retired he researched the invasions & found the US military had been “used.” Butler wrote the book; “War is a Racket”; where he states: “The US Military are Used as Gangsters & Thugs for US (Corporate) Capitalist interests.”
    Since then another Mjr General came on the scene; Mjr Gen Riienhard Gehlen; head of NAZI Intelligence in WW2. As part of Operation Paperclip the US put Gehlen into the CIA. Gehlen grew the CIA into an out of control covert agency (as it remains) & set up the new German secret service simultaneously??? Once he retired the CIA reviewed his work & found Gehlen had “Exaggerated” all his claims by at least 90%; so the CIA “maintained” his MO to keep growing the CIA & expand US Military bases & operations to over 130countries!!!

    Ummm the same people that are running the USA gobberment from behind the curtain. Maybe Soros, bush and buddies. Who the flock knows! One thing for sure, not the “we the people”!

  • John Mackerel

    Terrorism is a US invention so we can continue this never ending war benefiting the military industrial complex…

    Before WWII, many US companies were working for both sides with their German production facilities. No matter who won, they still benefited as being patriotic…

    People need to understand that the gov’t is not this country as it’s clearly working for corp interests…

    Terrorism gets a lot of press because terrorist attacks in Western Countries are so rare.
    Here in the U.S. in 2015, we had about 15,700 murders, 327,000 robberies, 90,000 rapes and about 764,000 aggravated assaults (FBI Figures) At least in this Country, your chances of being killed or hurt by non-terrorist related crime is much greater by comparison. In Brazil, where Islamic terrorism is virtually nil, the homicide rate is several times greater than the U.S.
    The media creates a false narrative where they pretend that we live in safe world which is suddenly violated by “acts of terrorism.” Of course the U.K. has much less violent crime than we have here in the U.S, so I can understand their reaction. Even so, they have enough child abuse to go around.
