The Vice President’s speech this week at Harvard University raised a few eyebrows when he blamed Washington’s Middle East allies for financing and fueling the rise of the Islamic terrorist phenomenon ISIS.
There’s more to this than meets the eye…
RT reports: On Thursday, Biden said his ‘old friend’ Erdogan (Turkish President) had admitted to making a mistake in allowing foreign fighters to cross the Turkish border into Syria.
‘You were right. We let too many people through. Now they’re trying to seal their border,’Biden quoted Erdogan as saying.
So Biden just blew the lid on Syria’s Jihadi plague and threw Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain and the UAE – the whole Arab coalition, under the bus. This is a significant departure from the Vice President’s wild-eyed, American muscle-flexing, ‘Gates of Hell’ ISIS speechunleashed only weeks earlier.
Most alternative journalists and geopolitical realists will certainly back Biden’s point, and some may even applaud it, but it’s still a huge break from the White House and US State Department, who have carefully crafted a mythology of a cohesive ‘Coalition’ in their battle to crush ISIS in Iraq and Syria (see video below).
