The Idea That ISIS Are Evil Masterminds Is Ridiculous – And It Distracts From Who The Real Enemy Is

by Mark Angelides

The MSM spin endless stories of how young Western Muslims are being radicalized by tech-savvy Jihadis, and provided with funds and training through secret camps and clever banking trails. But it’s ludicrous. The people we are now bombing are nothing more than idiots, led by slightly less idiotic people with slightly better connections. These are not the real enemy, they are bad people certainly, but they are not International Super Villains roaming the world on fake passports with connections everywhere.
This week, there was a story that three Jihadi fighters were killed in a stampede of wild pigs. “It is likely their movement disturbed a herd of wild pigs, which inhabit the area as well as the nearby cornfields,” Sheikh Anwar al-Assi, a chief of the local Ubaid tribe and supervisor of anti-ISIS forces, told the Times of London.
And while this is dripping in delicious irony, it should remind us that these terrorists are living in a part of the world where being killed by pigs is probably not a rarity. What are the odds of them ever having roamed within a hundred miles of where they were born?
And then there is a video released of fighters trying to shoot down an aircraft with single shots whilst standing in the middle of a road. Obviously, they had the Sh** bombed out of them and left the people filming whimpering in a scared voice “Allahu Akbar”. They are not smart enough to figure out the proper use of the weapon, and inexperienced enough to stand in a place that they are extremely likely to be fired back at. I repeat, NOT criminal masterminds.
But why then do the media and the world governments constantly push this image? Who are the real people behind the Global Jihad that is taking place? Who are the moneymen, the fixers, the trainers, and the organizers? Because they are not the semi-retarded village boys we see being killed by pigs and easy bomb drops.
We are not invited to look too closely at this because we may realize that the well-trained experts in international funding, are well-trained by us. The experienced teachers of Guerilla warfare and explosive usage are experienced because they have been trained by some of the best armies in the world. And the “Desert Generals” who seem to know exactly what kind of maneuvers our troops are making and likely to make, know these things because they have been trained by the same military.
Don’t buy the narrative on this. This is not the war we think it is, and it’s not the war the idiots who slavishly follow the Islamic Radicals think it is. Both sides will lose people, and it’s all for smoke and mirrors.
