Opinion - Sponsors of terrorism

Simon Kamati


Over the past decades, terrorism has spread throughout the world despite the seemingly organised struggle of all countries. The results are insignificant, as the complete victory is still far away. 

There is a logical conclusion that this phenomenon cannot be eradicated because it is supported and beneficial to someone.

The US State Department has added four countries to the list of state sponsors of terrorism - Cuba, North Korea, Iran and Syria. The whole world agreed as usual. What about the USA?

There are many proven facts of the use by Washington of terrorist groups in its interests. Professor Ruth J. Blakely of the University of Sheffield believes that the United States and its allies have been sponsoring and using terrorist groups and state terrorism on a “massive scale” since the Cold War. 

This activity was justified as ostensibly the communism containment, but it was also a means of US business elite interests.

Since the second half of the 1980s, the US intelligence services began to focus their work specifically on the Islamists, in particular Al-Qaeda and other Wahhabi organisations. 

An Osama bin Laden associate, Ayman Zawahiri, interacted with representatives of the CIA and the officials of NATO. 

American special services created Al-Qaeda in 1988 based on the Egyptian Islamic Jihad group.

The United States has made extensive use of various terrorist organisations as part of Operation Cyclone in Afghanistan. 

The CIA armed and trained over 100 000 fighters. The total amount of aid to the Afghan Mujahideen from the United States amounted to billions of dollars. This led to the radicalisation of political Islam and the spread of the ideas of jihadism. 

Many Mujahideen later became terrorists. The most famous of them is Osama bin Laden, the founder and first emir of the international Islamist terrorist organisation Al-Qaeda.

Gradually United States were losing full control under Al-Qaeda and even were attacked on September 11, 2001 and suffered a severe defeat in Afghanistan in 2021. 

The sad experience is not taken into account by anyone in White House, and now everybody can see the facts of the continued interaction of the American intelligence services with extremists in Syria for example.

Damascus accuses Washington of sponsoring terrorism on Syrian territory. The Americans arbitrarily invaded the republic and support the illegal formations of the Free Syrian Army (FSA), which closely cooperates with the extremist groups Jabhat al-Nusra, the Ahrar al-Sham brigades, Liwa at-Tawhid, Ahrar al-Suriya, Liwa Islami, and the ISIS group.

The military alliance “Islamic Coalition” was formed on the basis of the FSA units. Its central link was one of the divisions of Al-Qaeda - Jabhat al-Nusra. The three largest formations of the FSA - Liwa a-Tawhid, Liwa al-Islam, Sukor ash-Sham joined this alliance. 

According to Damascus, all of them receive direct military and financial assistance from the United States of America. For example, the help for extremists during Operation Timber Sycamore, since 2012, was amounted to several billion dollars.

Today, experts are talking about the facts of the transfer of ISIS terrorists by the America secret services from the Syrian base of Al-Tanf to Ukraine. They arrive on Ukrainian territory as US mercenaries, where they got weapons and money granted by Washington.

It is possible to continue the similar facts from history and our days - Nicaragua, Libya, Iraq, Chechnya and Kosovo. Terrorism never exists on its own - states or country groups always exploit it. 

Terrorist organisations controlled by the Western globalist elite have become an effective means of putting pressure on those who refuse to obey them, even if it is an entire people or independent states. 

In fact, all Islamic extremism is a product of the United States. Al-Qaeda, the Taliban, ISIS are created by the Anglo-American special services.
