ISIS, today’s most dangerous and richest terrorist group is actually being supported and fed by western countries. ISIS is expanding and ravaging every piece of land they are walking on by killing innocent people, destroying homes and families in the name of religion. It has taken over large swaths of northern and western Iraq and the day is not far when ISIS is going to launch a massive attack on other nearby countries. In October 2014, Russian President, Vladimir Putin, made a very interesting declaration revealing the exact details of how the western countries are actually the ones feeding ISIS. The extract of the speech below.
“In Syria, the United States and its allies started directly financing and arming rebels and allowing them to fill their ranks with mercenaries from various countries. Where does all this come from? How did we allow the notorious ISIS to become such a powerful group, essentially a real armed force? Today, the money is coming not just from drugs, production of which has increased not just by a few percentage points but many-fold, since the international coalition forces have been present in Afghanistan. You are aware of this. The terrorists are getting money from selling oil, too. Oil is produced in territory controlled by the terrorists, who sell it at dumping prices, produce it and transport it. But someone buys this oil, resells it, and makes a profit from it, not thinking about the fact that they are thus financing terrorists who could come sooner or later to their own soil and sow destruction in their own countries.”
He goes on about how they managed to recruit troops.
It’s quite simple : money makes the world go round. A well-funded campaign will not only attract mercenaries but it will also convert the naive young extremist fighters. To me those are the most interesting of all the forces involved in this conflict, boys from all over the world who are tricked into warfare by triggering extreme anger toward everything that’s western. Another study shows that in general psychopaths are drawn to these kind of conflicts because of the general “game without any rules to play by”.
The aim of ISIS is to be as infamous and as feared as possible, and frankly they are succeeding, not in their goal of world domination but fame, and lots of it. It seems that some medieval practices such as beheading journalists on camera for an “eager crowd” which is in the mood to be shocked, does pay off. However with the current situation, I don’t think they have much more fight in them with the Kurds now taking up arms from both Iraq and Turkey. My sincere hope is that it doesn’t take them much longer because a war is never without casualties and therefore the pile of casualties grows unless this conflict is stopped.
