Gareth Bryant’s Reasons why ISIS is a Myth:

Standard

Now, after watching this video, from C-Span, a very reputable media outlet, dating back to 1990, I was compelled to seriously examine the reasons as to why ISIS, the so-called “Islamic-State” is another from among so many past/present Phantom-Enemies which the United States & her crony-allies have invented. So, the following are just some of many conclusions that I’ve come to as to why ISIS is a Mythology:

1. The first time that ISIS is largely publicized is in 2014. However, as of recently, the Media now states that ISIS has existed ever since the beginning of the Iraq-War, which started in 2003. My question is why has the Public only being told about ISIS now, if it had existed all this time? The information mentioned in the above video makes that fairly clear.

2. In order for any entity to be given the credibility & acknowledgement of being an Islamic-State, there’s several things which have to take place:

a. Those claiming to be leaders of an Islamic-State have to be Muslims & the identities of those claiming legitimacy to the position of being heads of an Islamic-State have to be well-known to the Public.

b. They have to be Muslims who are respected among their peers & the general body of Muslims everywhere.

c. They have to be given Bay`ah/Allegiance: all Muslims have to acknowledge the legitimacy of those claiming to be the heads of an Islamic-State, which has not happened & will not happen, because the actions of ISIS are inherently antithetical to Islamic-Teachings.

d. They have to possess independent territories, as opposed to what’s happening in the Middle-East, People claiming to be the leaders of the Muslim-World embattled in a country/countries which have been militarily-occupied by Non-Muslims, and/or Muslims who don’t accept their legitimacy in the first place.

3. ISIS, the name itself, is an acronym, and acronyms don’t even exist in the Arabic-Language. the Members of ISIS largely don’t speak English, so how is it that they got the idea to name their Islamic-State with a linguistic concept that doesn’t even exist in the language which they speak? This acronym was placed upon them by Western-Media.

4. ISIS is the actual name of an Ancient-Egyptian pagan-goddess. So, why would any Islamic-State name itself after a pagan god/goddess, when Paganism (a form of Shirk: ascribing false-qualities to Allah) is completely antithetical to Islamic-Teachings?

5. John McCain stated publicly that they’ve sat at the table with Members of ISIS. Now, as a Member of Congress, more specifically the House of the Senate, the largest lawmaking body in the United States, who gave McCain any authority to sit at the table with a so-called terrorist-group, knowing the official-policy of the US is to not sit at the table with Terrorists? How was he able to leave Syria/Iraq safely/with his life? He’s a well-known figure in the World, this Person almost became a US-President, so he’s known: why wasn’t he taken as a hostage, or taken for ransom?  All of these questions have yet to be answered.

Some of the many Ironies which are American-Intervention:

Standard

Barack Obama

“Irony” in one of its purest manifestations:

The United States (Obama the House-Nigga) wants to police Syria & stop Bashar al-Assad from using “chemical-weapons”, against his own people. However, one has to really ponder over the following: 1.Why is it that with all of the killings being done in Syria, with merely the usage of conventional-weaponry, the “International-Community” (aka U.S. & Co.) stayed on the sidelines, until the buzz-word Chemical-Weapons surfaced in the media; is it safe to assume that the U.S. would’ve let Bashar al-Assad continue to kill his own people, as long as he only used conventional-weapons?!!! 2. Which nation, in today’s world was there to police & stop the U.S., when they stood idly by, allowing White-People to use trees to lynch hundreds of thousands of their own countrymen, out of racial-hatred, from the 1870’s to the 1970’s, or when they stood idly by, as city/state authorities water-hosed (nearly to death), beat, arrested, and killed thousands of their own citizenry, during the 1950’s & 1960’s because these people were fighting for basic-rights due to any/every Human being, or when they used chemical-weaponry (Napalm in particular), against thousands of innocents during the Vietnam-War, bombing the life out of Vietnam, Cambodia, etc., classifying it as merely “collateral-damage”?!!!

If the U.S. says it’s not a Coup, then I guess it’s not a Coup, huh?!!!

Standard

The United States‬ is still not declaring the Coup in Egypt‬ a Coup‬

…Oh, I wonder why?

1. Could it be because of all of the influence that the United States wants to maintain in ‪‎Egypt‬, by supporting the military-fashioned dictators, whom all do the bidding of the United States?

2. Or, maybe it’s because of all the billions of dollars worth of U.S. Foreign-Aid sent to Egypt, on an annual-basis, which compels Egypt to do the bidding of the United States?

3. Then, again, it could be because of all of the allowances of Egypt for the United States to have the infamous CIA Torture-Camps, within Egypt, that have been used by the United States, since the 1950’s?

Yeah…really interesting stuff, right?!!!

To put it very simply:

The United States is truly an amazingly-hypocritical nation…

…America is, literally the only nation, in Human-History, that has official laws about” not negotiating with Terrorists-Groups/Organizations” and “not supporting Military-Coups, when they’ve actually, constantly/consistently, done those same exact 2-things within the past 4-decades alone, while no one within the U.S. gov’t. has yet to acknowledge this: Nicaragua (via the infamous Iran-Contra Affair, which brings us to the “not negotiating with Terrorists” thing, which I’ve written extensively about, in a previous blog-post: http://www.garethbryant.wordpress.com/2011/10/10/ifanwaralawlakiwereolivernorthhedstillbealivechillin), Panama, Grenada, and these are just some of many examples…Ahhh, America…Land of the Corrupt & home of the Hypocrites.

Oppression: What the World needs to be constantly reminded of:

Standard

In light of what has recently been happening in Palestine, let’s look at some historical examples of the same type of oppression, that’s just as vile as what we’ve witnessed in the Levant during our very own lifetimes:

1. The Crusades, the Christian invasions of the Muslim-World, during the Middle-Ages (1095-1456 C.E.)

2. The Spanish & Portuguese-Inquisitions (1478-1821 C.E.)

3. Chattel-Enslavement of Africans & Native-Americans, in the Western-Hemisphere (circa. 1500-1900 C.E.)4. The Indian-Removal & Indian-War tactics & policies of the United States, against the Native-Americans of the continental U.S. (circa. 1781-1901 C.E.)5. The Pogroms of Russia (circa. 1881-1919)

6. The Holocaust of Nazi Germany & Fascist Italy, in Europe, as well as North Africa (circa. 1938-1944 C.E.)

7. The occupation of Palestine & the decimation of the Palestinian people (circa. 1947-present).

Now, is it just me, or are these few examples manifestations of some very pathological behavioral-patterns, that have been a recurring theme within our Human-existence; also, isn’t it most ironic that these same atrocities, that have been imposed upon the Jewish people (#’s 5 & 6) are now, at the hands of a Jewish-State government, imposing very similar acts of terror, strife, rape, murder, destruction, robbery, and torture upon the Palestinian people (#7)?

Some Brief Islamic-History (The Rightly-Guided Khalifahs):

Standard

These new posts of mine, which will be posted periodically, which will be labeled “Some Brief Islamic-History” will be, what I hope to be, many educational articles about the history of Islam. And, by history of Islam, I really mean from the time from Adam, to the present-day, because, based upon Islamic-Texts, Islam didn’t begin with Muhammad (Peace be upon him)-Muhammad wasn’t the first Muslim, so in light of that fact, it is a must that I write about other persons, whom were Muslims before his time, whom have made a true difference for Muslims of today. My first post will be about the first set of Islamic-Rulers, who came to power, after the death of Muhammad (Peace be upon him).

Author’s note:
All of what is mentioned in this post is exclusively based upon the classic work, “al-Khulafa’-ur-Rashidun”, by the great Muslim scholar & historian, Jalal-ad-Din as-Suyuti-The era of time, in which great Muslim leaders rose to preside over the geo-political/military affairs of the Muslims, after the death of Muhammad (Peace be upon him) are more relevant because of the era that they came from (the Rashidi-Khilafah era), as opposed to whom they were as individuals. And, their administrations are so intertwined with one another’s, that they have actually fed off of one another, in very important ways, religiously, bureaucratically, socially, politically, and militarily. However, since we don’t have the time to go into that much detail, I’ll just simply highlight what I personally deem as the most significant aspects of their tenures, as heads of the Islamic-State, relative to their years of service.

Let’s start with the term, al-Khulafa’-ur-Rashidin:
The word “Khulafa’” is a plural of “Khalifah”, meaning a successor, inheritor, caretaker, custodian, etc., from the verb, “Khalafa”, meaning to succeed, inherit. And, the word Rashidun is from Rashid, meaning one who guides, from the verb “Rashada”, meaning to guide, direct. The actual concept of Khilafah, a caretaker, custodian, etc., actually begins with the Jinn, before the creation of the Human being. Initially, the Jinn were given the honor of the post of the Khilafah. However, they had begun to oppress & kill one another on Earth. So, Allah had decided to take the Khilafah from them, and banished them from normal life on Earth & subjected them to dwell in desolate forests, deserts, and any all other places in which it would be very difficult for Humans to live normally. Upon that, then, Allah created Adam & Eve (peace be upon them) & placed upon them, as well as their descendants, us, the post of Khilafah.(Noble Qur’an: Chpt.2, V.30; Qasas-ul-Anbiya’[Stories of the Prophets], ibn-Kathir)

The Rashidi-Period:
By far, the most distinct, most relevant & most important of all the Khilafah periods, because the Muslim rulers of this era set governmental precedents, which other Khilafah eras had adopted until the end of the Khilafah, after World War I. These individuals in this Khilafah period are also the most unique of any generation of Khulafa’, by virtue of the fact that all of the Muslim rulers of the Rashidi period were Companions of Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him), and, either knew one another, or knew of one another, personally.

Now, let’s start off with the Khulafa’ from this period:

1. `Abdullah ibn-`Uthman ibn-`Amir (AKA Abu-Bakr, as-Siddiq, as-Sabbaq):
-Initiated Hurub-ar-Riddah (the Wars of Apostacy), a direct result of False-Prophets leading people astray, various communities & Arab tribes refusing to pay Zakah & refusing to pledge allegiance to the Islamic-State, after the death of Muhammad (Peace be upon him).

-Established the basic bureaucratic elements of the Khilafah, which piggy-backed largely off of the Islamic-State which Muhammad (Peace be upon him) had established in al-Madinah, then, in the Hijaz & the rest of the Arabian-Peninsula, after the “Conquest of Makkah”.

-Established the Islamic-State as a significant force in the Mediterranean region.

2. `Umar ibn-ul-Khattab (al-Faruq):
-Initiated the first major wave of geo-political/military expansion, beyond the Arab/Mediterranean-World.

-Established mass bureaucratic adjustments/improvements within the Khilafah, both internally & externally.

-Established mass adjustments/improvements, regarding relations between the Islamic-State & its citizenry.

3. `Uthman ibn-`Affan (Dhun-Nurayn):
-Maintained the geo-political/military stability of the Islamic-State.

-Initiated & completed mass educational projects, which included the completion of what would forever be known as the `Uthmani-Script Mushaf.

-Initiated dealing with the Khawarij, in a diplomatic manner, which costed him his life.

4. `Ali ibn Abi-Talib:
-Intensified dealing with the Khawarij & switching from the passive/diplomatic approach of `Uthman, to a more active/forceful approach.

-Initiated putting a stop to/crushing the first waves of geo-political/military rebellions, against the Khilafah.
5. al-Hasan ibn-`Ali ibn-Abi-Talib:
-Took the reigns of the Islamic-State, from `Ali, after his assassination.

-Abdicated his authority of the Khilafah to Mu`awiyah, in the same year as `Ali’s death.

6. Mu`awiyah ibn Abi-Sufyan:
-Refused to resign from his post, as governor of Syria, after the assassination of `Uthman, which became a direct leading cause of the rebellion he led against `Ali.

-Accepted the abdication of al-Hasan, as the Khalifah, and, thus, becoming a Khalifah, himself, during the same year as the assassination of `Ali, known as the “Year of Unity”.

-Became the last Khalifah of the Rashidi period & the Khalifah of the Umayyi period.

Established the precedent of having a relative (preferably a son) of a former Khalifah, to be a succeeding Khalifah.

-Established the first Navy for the Islamic-State, which made the Maritime power of the Khilafah unparalleled in the Mediterranean-World.

My thoughts on the 4th of July:

Standard

Author’s Note:

July 4th-Weekend is where people put up their American flags, on their home doors, front lawns, windows, and/or cars & have day-long BBQ’s in their backyards, or go to beaches, celebrating the commemoration of how American Colonists stood against the British Crown & resisted tyranny. I would just like to present this poem, about the reality of fallacy & self-deception, of being patriotic, to a nation, like the United States-Even though she, herself, has felt the sting of tyrannical suppression, has, ironically, been historically known to oppress other peoples & nations, robbing them of independence, freedom, justice, and equality, while portraying to be the torchbearer of independence, liberation, freedom, justice, and equality-Everything from the establishment of the 3/5th Compromise, constitutionalizing the further dehumanization of the African-American, as not even being even Human, rather, only beasts of burden, to the violation of peace & land treaties, made to Native-American nations & tribes, to the Indian Removal Act, to the Fugitive Slave Act, to the Indian-Wars, which further decimated the power, majesty, culture, and population of the once proud & dignified original peoples of the Americas, in North America, to the 1st Red-Scare of the 1920’s, after World-War I, to the internment of Japanese-Americans, during World-War II, to the 2nd Red-Scare of the 1950’s, during the Cold-War era, to the assassination of JFK, which exposed the shadow-rulers & shadow-government of this nation, to the Vietnam-War, and all other unjust military invasions of nations, before & thereafter, to COINTELPRO, to the fallacy of 9-11, in which an entire religious populace has been made the perpetual subject of political, & social religious-profiling, to the Patriot Act, the prelude to the NDAA, and so many examples-Is this a nation truly worthy of your patriotism? You must all ask yourselves this important question!!!

The Pledge of Illusion:

What good is a pledge, when the loyalty is always one-sided?
This pledge of allegiance of the United States is often biased.

The false cloak of “American-Values” has tragically consumed the trust & good-will of many.
When our hands are on our chests, do we think of those oppressed by this nation’s tyranny?

Patriotism has become fanatical Fascism, the motivating force being power & racism.

The “Founding-Fathers”  built this nation using free-labor of captives during slavery.
The carnage committed against Native-Americans was deemed as justified savagery.

We forgot about the Black-Codes & Jim-Crow; most of us are oblivious, we really don’t know.
What happened to “Black Wall Street” isn’t found in any school-books that they want to show.

Patriotism has become fanatical Fascism; the motivating force is power & racism.

America wants no one with nuclear-weapons, yet they’re the only ones who ever used them.
Hiroshima & Nagasaki, cities full of civilians, were they ever a threat to America’s freedom?

Vietnam was a country used as a testing-ground for Agent-Orange and Napalm.
The U.S. tried to force Democracy upon them, with the policy of the strong-arm.

Patriotism has become fanatical Fascism; the motivating force is power & racism.

So, the next time that you want to pledge allegiance to the flag, think clearly of the past.
Decide for yourself, whether your loyalty to a regime is valid; do a compare & contrast.

My thoughts on al-Hajjaj ibn-Yusuf & Bashar al-Assad (The tale of two tyrants):

Standard

These two men have a lot in common: al-Hajjaj lived over a thousand years ago; but, apparently, tyranny in the Muslim-World, unfortunately, didn’t die with him. Bashar has seemed to be the geo-political reincarnation of al-Hajjaj, basically picking up where he left off. And, the irony is that they’ve both been leaders in the same region of  the world. al-Hajjaj was once the Governor of Iraq, during the Umayyi-period, the neighboring country to Syria, which Bashar is now the current President of, more than a millennium later. What makes these two men so distant from one another historically, yet character-wise, so similar, referring to their thirst for absolute-power, bloodshed & ruthless-tactics in the administration of government?
Let’s take a look into each of their respective lives to learn more about what drove them to the madness of their reigns of terror:al-Hajjaj ibn-Yusuf-
Originally named Kulayb, changing his name to al-Hajjaj, he was basically, a soldier his whole life, began his political & military career under the Khilafah (Islamic-Rulership) of `Abd-il-Malik ibn-Marwan, the 5th of the Umayyi-Khulafa’ (Islamic-Rulers of the Umayyi-period). His first official governmental-post was in being part of Ash-Shurtah (the official police force of the Khilafah at this time). He received recognition, by being a stern disciplinarian towards those in his command. During the battle of Maskin, in 72, A.H./691, C.E., in which the forces of the Khalifah were victorious over those who supported a rebel, named Mus`ab ibn-az-Zubayr, he was recommended to be transferred to al-Hijaz (the western coast of the Arabian-Peninsula, which is the home of the cities of al-Makkah, al-Madinah, at-Ta’if, Jiddah, etc.), to crush yet another rebellion there.  His first official crime was massacring the Hujjaj (Pilgrims to Makkah), during Hajj (Pilgrimage), in 73, A.H./692, C.E. Two years after that massacre, he was transferred to Iraq, to take the post of Governor, a position that held from 75, A.H./695, C.E., until his death, in 95, A.H./714, C.E.

He was originally only commissioned to negotiate with the people of Makkah, whom were rebelling against the current Khalifah, under the banner of `Abdillah ibn-iz-Zubayr (May Allah be pleased with him), a companion of Muhammad (Peace be upon him). However, as a result of being banned from making Hajj, al-Hajjaj decided to storm the city of Makkah, which resulted in one of the bloodiest episodes that city ever saw, in which `Abdallah ibn-az-Zubayr was also among those whom were mercilessly & brutally murdered, during al-Hajjaj’s storming of Makkah, two years before he accepted the post of being the Governor of Iraq. Now, you’d think that his taste for bloodshed would’ve at least ended there; but, it did not-It only became more insatiable.

Once he became the Governor of Iraq, all hell broke loose. He is officially documented, by the Muslim historian,  Abu-Mansur `Abd il-Malik ibn-Muhammad ibn-Isma`il ath-Tha`alibi, as being one of four men whom were personally responsible for the deaths of at least 100Thousand people. His killing-spree was notorious, to say the least. He was by far, the most feared Muslim political-figure of his lifetime. He was a shrewd & ruthless politician, a butcher of the righteous, and an all-around derelict. Whatever accomplishments which occurred during his reign as an official would never be able to clean up the blood that he had spilled all in the name of ultimate-control.

Bashar al-Assad-
Since the year 2000, C.E., Bashar Hafizh al-Assad has ruled Syria as President, using his political charm to hide & deceive the world-community, until recently, of his iron-fist dominance of his native Syria. Born into a powerful political family, Bashar was groomed for power, by his father, Hafez al-Assad, after the untimely death of his older brother, Basil, whom was expected to succeed Hafez, as the leader of Syria. For six years, from 1996, until 2000, Bashar was made & cultivated to take a foot-hole into Syrian politics, in preparation to take his father’s place. The main highlights of Syria’s oppression, with Bashar at the helm, had began in 2011.

The Arab-Spring, the revolution-spree, which rocked the Arab-World to its core, had affected every country in the Middle-East, Syria particularly. However, unlike most of the Arab-States Syria is very unique, as Syria has established permanent alliances, via their supporters who are of the `Alawi-Shi`i sect, whom have entrenched their influence within the Syrian political & military hierarchy at the highest levels, to the extent that it is nearly impossible for the ruling Assad’s to separate themselves from the connection which they have with the military-In other words, if one fails the others fail as well. The `Alawi-Shi`i’s & the Assads, as well as the military-machine of Syria must, at all cost, support one another, for the safety and preservation of them all.

So, naturally, when the Arab-Spring started to catch ground in the Arab-World, the Assad-regime decided that this needed to be quelled once it reached Syria, at all costs. This resulted in mass crackdowns of Syrian protests of governmental corruption and the will of Syrian citizens to want political reformation in their country, such as murder, detainment, and beatings by Syrian security forces. In total, in 2011 alone, about 5,000 Syrians are estimated to have been killed by the onslaught of Syrian oppression, with Bashar at the helm. On one end, Bashar had given speeches portraying himself as a progressive leader, who really wants to reform his country; then, on the other hand, when his people want reform to be something tangible, he’s using military-muscle to crush their attempts to be a part of the reforms.

What makes people like al-Hajjaj & Bashar tick?
The major incentive I would say, to keep people suppressed, the way these two individuals have, is to maintain constant control. You can’t dominate someone you can’t control. And,  to people like them, it’s very obvious that absolute-power is their only goal in life. However, there is one thing that people like them always forget, it’s called the Hereafter. We look at al-Hajjaj, whom people actually made prayers against, to his face. Of course, they were dealt with severely by him for it. But, the point is that when you’re oppressing people, eventually the wrath of Allah is going to crash upon you like a ton of bricks. As our Prophet, Muhammad (Peace be upon him) has said, “The supplication of…an oppressed person are never rejected/always answered (by Allah).”(Tirmidhi)

al-Hajjaj eventually meet his end & he will most definitely have to give an account to Allah for what he did in this world. Assad still has a chance to change his ways, but, unfortunately, that looks doubtful that he ever will. This is why knowing history is oh so important, because it teaches you about the past & how to either repeat the positive of the past, to not repeat the negative of the past, or both. Yet, sadly, most of us do not learn from history, and that’s why when it is time to meet Allah, it will not be pleasant. Meeting Allah as an oppressor will be a very painful experience, as mentioned by the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) that, “Verily, Allah Most High gives rope to the oppressor so that when He seizes him, he does not get away.”(Bukhari)

The lesson which me must learn:
We must firstly, always, be dutiful to Allah & not be ungrateful. Next, we are to never pursue the acquisition of authority or responsibility in the land. This is because we will be held into strict account for what is within the bounds of our responsibilities or control, as the Messenger of Allah has warned us that, “Everyone of you is a shepherd & everyone of you will be questioned concerning whom he shepherded.”(Agreed upon [by all of the classic authentic collectors & documentors of Prophetic-Statements as being authentic]) He also said, “You will covet leadership, but it will be a source of regret on the Day of Rising.”(Bukhari)

This obviously means that we will regret the very day that we voluntarily agreed to lead people or to be responsible over others. People like al-Hajjaj ibn-Yusuf & Bashar al-Assad are truly sad individuals, because al-Hajjaj has already made his bed, which he’s now sleeping in , in his grave & if Bashar doesn’t turn his life around & turn back to Allah, he will be in the same predicament. We need to seriously learn from their errors & be stern with ourselves to be dutiful to Allah, in all things before our meeting with him, because once we take our last breath, that’s it. Once we’re dead, we will never be here again, and that means that we have to get it right the first (and only) time around.

Disposable-Rulers:

Standard

Oct. 20th, 2011, the world-wide announcement of the death of the Dictator of Libya, Muammar al-Gaddafi was made. He had been on the run, in his own country, for the past few months, fighting a no-win civil-war with U.S./U.N.-supported rebel forces, made up of his own fellow countrymen. The reason why I’m bringing this up is because there’s a very definitive pattern of the United States hunting down and/or killing, or assisting in hunting down and/or killing world leaders, from other countries; also, there’s a definitive pattern of the United States supporting the deposition of regimes & governments, that do not go along with the presumed game-plan of the United States, so that the U.S. can further spread its geo-political/financial influence and benefit from whatever natural resources that they can get their hands on.

For educational purposes, I’ll take the liberty of mentioning both leaders & nations who were subjugated to the dominance of the U.S., whenever they felt the need to remove certain leaders and/or regimes from power-This is gonna be an historically chronological list by the way:

1. Hawaii-

Leader (Kingdom/Republic): Queen Lili’uokalani (Kingdom of Hawaii)

Date of deposition: 1893

Historical backdrop of deposition:

This is very simple: The U.S. at this time was fresh off of the conquest of the rest of what is now the continental U.S., via the Indian-Wars. Plus, the U.S. began annexing territories of the Spanish Crown, during the Spanish-American War hand-over-fist. So, since the U.S. had already taken the Philippines from the Spanish, and added them to the arsenal of U.S. colonies in, both Latin America & the Pacific, I guess they decided that it was okay to punk the relatively peaceful island kingdom of the Hawaiian Islands. So, this is basically how it went: a lot of U.S. citizens & Europeans were property owners and landowners in the Hawaiian Islands, with strong political & financial ties to both American & European elite political & financial machines; and, of course, like anywhere & everywhere that they went, the Europeans Americans got mad greedy & wanted to control every damn thing. By the way, this upheaval was directly co-signed & approved by the U.S., in addition to aiding these U.S. rebels in Hawaii by sending U.S. Marines, which led to militarily occupy this country unjustly, until it was made the 50th state of the United States, in 1960.

2. Iran-

Leader/Government (Kingdom/Republic): Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadegh (Republic of Iran)

Date of deposition:1953

Historical backdrop of deposition:

Operation Ajax was the CIA code-name for this coup d’etat, which forcefully removed the legitimately elected Prime Minister of Iran. What was the reason for this one, you may ask?!!!! O…I…L…..Oil, plain & simple. The Iranian Parliament, had just recently in 1951, approved a law which would nationalize Petroleum in Iran, therefore preventing special investment/interests groups, representing powerful foreign countries & financial conglomerates from exploiting this resource. And, of course this ticked off not only the U.S., but the boys from the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company. So, what do they do? The oh so classic divide-and-conquer political chess-move, which, unfortunately, works every single time that it’s played. The CIA, along with British Intelligence incited rioting throughout Iran, by using Iranian nationals who were on the CIA & British intelligence payrolls, to act as communists, and staged attacks against high-ranked Shi’ite religious clerics, which obviously did not go well with the rest of the Shi’ite-dominated populace. This resulted in what the U.S. & U.K. had planned, the toppling of the government, and replacing it with Shah Mohammed Reza  Pahlev, a well-known go-along-to-get-along puppet/running-dog of the CIA.

3. The Congo-

Leader/Government (Kingdom/Republic): Patrice Lumumba/Democratic Republic of the Congo

Date of deposition: 1961

Historical backdrop of deposition:

The then President, Dwight D. Eisenhower, the hero of World War II, affectionately referred to as “Ike”, basically said what President Barack Obama had said about Anwar Al-Awlaki some 50 years before, “I want him dead!!!”. Lumumba had just very recently helped his country receive independence from their mother colonizer, Belgium. But, what Lumumba didn’t realize is that independence can’t be granted, it has to be taken. So, just because your country is free on paper, doesn’t mean that you truly have freedom. And like, Mossadegh from Iran, Lumumba wanted to truly materialize freedom for his countrymen, which was a tremendous threat to both the geo-political/financial interests of not only Beligium, but also the U.S. This resulted in the infamous “Congo Crisis”, in which future Congo leader Joseph Mobutu, was used to help topple Lumumba & his government, in exchange for the gift of Dictator of the Congo ever since. And, he, unlike Lumumba was more than comfortable with staying in his place. Lumumba was captured & executed by CIA operatives.

4. Nicaragua-

Leader/Government (Kingdom/Republic): The Sandinista Government (Republic of Nicaragua)

Date of deposition: 1990

Historical backdrop of deposition:

The Sandinista government was legitimately elected into power by the people of Nicaragua. But, this interfered with the interests of the U.S., because they wanted to control the political destiny of Latin America, staying true to the precepts of the Monroe Doctrine. So, what the U.S. does is support a rag-tag gang of drug-dealing gangsters, murderers, extortionists, and terrorists, known as the Contras, to eliminate the legitimate power held by the Sandinistas. The Contras agree to oust the Sandinistas, in exchange for allowance to smuggle drugs indiscriminately into the U.S. for profit, which increased the distribution of Cocaine & escalated the intensity of the drug-trade in the U.S. The conflict of the Contras vs. the Sandinistas had occurred for a whole decade, before the eventual deposition of the Sandinistas, at the behest of the U.S., with some high-ranked military officials, namely Oliver North, along with the CIA, doing the dirty work-This was a major incident that made the Iran-Contra what it was.

5. The Philippines-

Leader/Government (Kingdom/Republic): Ferdinand Marcos (Republic of the Philippines)

Date of Deposition: 1986

Historical backdrop of deposition:

Initially, Ferdinand Marcos was strongly supported by the United States, despite the fact that the Marcos regime was guilty of many Human-Rights violations, as well as squandering billions of its nation’s domestic capital. Still, the U.S. supported the Philippines, mainly because of the military significant position of the Philippines in the Pacific. Basically, the Philippines served and still serves as on of many U.S. Naval satellite nations, that are used to monitor the Pacific Ocean. As political unrest in the Philippines, as a result of governmental corruption & mismanagement of monies in the country, the U.S. used its geo-political influence & military might to remove Marcos from power.

Much like the rest of these other leaders & regimes, Gaddafi & his regime were once completely supported by the U.S. But, as soon as he decided that he wanted to run his own country the way that he wanted to, as opposed to the way that the U.S. wanted him to run his country, then he became one of the many “Disposable-Rulers”. These are individuals whom were either initially supported by the U.S., or were complete self-sufficient nations to begin with, and when they were deemed a threat to the interests of the U.S., they were quickly ousted from power. This is a timeless stratagem, to keep leaders & nations under the thumbs of the elite puppet-masters/king-makers.

There have been very few leaders & countries whom have told the U.S. to kick rocks; but, they’ve either been sanctioned into extreme poverty by the rest of the international-community, at the behest of the U.S., ousted by direct U.S. military force and/or various intelligence agencies that are the international hired goons of America (like the CIA for example), or intense geo-political deception, which would cause the people of these respective countries to turn on their own leaders & thus make the process of invasion/conquest a hell of a lot easier for the U.S. Thus is the true history of U.S. international relations: instead of being the bully-of-the-block, America has been the bully-of-the -planet for a very long time. From the Indian-Wars to the invasion of Iraq, the U.S. has always betrayed and slit the throats of those whom they once made as leaders, and replaced them with puppets. The U.S. has a very well-known habit of removing persons from power who either second-guess, or just rebuke the whims of America & replace them with those whom they are confident will be more submissive & obedient to them-When it comes to power from the perspective of the U.S. particularly, you’re either a team-player (i.e. someone who only plays by their rules), or you’re not gonna play at all.
