Coming Soon

The trailer for the ISIS jihad-porn blockbuster Flames of War is quite something.

The Rubin Report-embedded version. “They’re clearly trying to bring us into a fight …”

ADDED: A little background from the International Business Times:

The new video, titled “Flames of War,” was released late Tuesday by the Al Hayat Media Center, which, according to the Washington-based Middle East Media Research Institute, was established in May as the media arm of the Islamic State. […] The 52-second-long video, which, at first glance, seems more like a video-game trailer, is replete with slow-motion effects and high-definition images. It shows exploding tanks and Islamic State militants apparently preparing to execute captives before the words “Flames of War” flash on the screen, followed by the words, “Fighting has just begun.” And, before the screen fades to black, the video ends with the words, “Coming Soon.”

    If the Obama wants to get rid of ISIS he’d have to send soldiers in, and these soldiers will have to stay there if he wants to stabilize Iraq and prevent further fragmentation. The question is, what does he actually wants to achieve?

    if he wanted to get rid of ISIS he would get the CIA, Turkey, Qatar and the Saudis to close the rat lines. they would run out of ammo in weeks.

    “what does he actually wants to achieve?”

    Very good question, I can speculate. ISIS isn’t a conventional threat in the sense that it can cut off trade, attack trade routes, or construct a threatening navy. The oil must flow and ISIS isn’t getting in the way of that. ISIS threatens the major powers with “terror”, which is to say they’re threatening the PTB with the ability to further concentrate centralized control. They also threaten Iran which is #1 on the list of countries USG want to “free” back to the stone age.

    I think the PTB think of ISIS as a jihadi bonsai they’re taking care of. Obviously they don’t want a true caliphate uniting over a billion people, disrupting trade and wielding actual power. But in miniature it aligns perfectly with their interests. The hard part is maintaining the kabuki theater of them being the enemy without actually causing them too much damage while keeping the populace sufficiently fearful of them and not looking weak when the populace go to the polls. A tall order even with the levers of power offered by the Cathedral, which is why there is plenty of head scratching.

    My prediction, troops (not counting the mercs who never left) where there are American contracts regarding particular oil wells.

    Well done; I do think you have a point, although perhaps you’re painting the decision makers as more sophisticated and rational than they actually are. As an Israeli, I’ll admit that the presence of ISIS and Arab fragmentation in general is likely beneficial to my country, for the obvious reason that chaos and war within the ranks of one’s enemies distracts and weakens them. Yet with everything fluid, there’s no safe bet.

    It seems to me that the main support in the West for fighting ISIS is rooted in moral outrage, much like the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan; the difference lies in the almost purposeful goading implemented by ISIS, an insane move on their part. Without the goading, the West wouldn’t have the popular outrage required to get involved, which is why I think that this whole thing isn’t really planned out at all.

    “the main support in the West for fighting ISIS is rooted in moral outrage…the difference lies in the almost purposeful goading implemented by ISIS…which is why I think that this whole thing isn’t really planned out at all”
    So a western world and Israel which finds being able to conduct warfare hamstrung by public sentiment (see 4GW, the Gaza offensive and the attempt at airstriking Syria halted by public outrage at going to war) could not have in any way facilitated an entity which is going out of its way to be as garish as possible, and as media presentable as possible? despite the clear evidence that it did.
    We are now in a position that the USA has declared it will strike Syria, without the attendant uproar. How come people find it difficult to think that the security services would think like this? it’s warfare propaganda 101 – demonize the enemy, and if there is no enemy to demonize – create one.

    I think it’s wiser to believe in a simpler explanaton than to consider some sort of New World Order conspiracy that funds and creates Islamist groups so that they can fight them. These fanatics are funded by other fanatics with loads of oil money, and the Middle East doesn’t lack those. Humans tend to find patterns even where there are none.

    Wouldn’t it be funny (hilarious!) if there were some sort of horribly lethal communicable disease spreading not terribly far from where some of these salafioon are running rampant? Isn’t there some major event coming up soon where coreligionists from all over the world descend on one location, then disperse back to their home countries?
