The War On Terrorism Is A Scam
"Boko Haram is an Islamic sect in northern Nigeria that rejects Western-style education, secular governance, the authority of the Nigerian state, and Islamic interpretations that run counter to its own teachings. Muhammad Yusuf, the group’s leader until his death in 2009, could potentially be labeled a “Wahhabi” – except that other “Wahhabis” in northern Nigeria rejected many of Yusuf’s ideas and were horrified by Boko Haram’s use of violence.

On October 14th President Obama notified Congress he was sending 300 troops to Cameroon along with his beloved aerial killing drones to counter the influence of the fanatical Islamic group Boko Haram. This was barely covered in the corporate mind control apparatus, the few outlets that did cover it parroted the government narrative that the troops plus a ninety man advance force are being sent to Cameroon to assist the Yaounde government and will remain in that country quote "until their support is no longer needed."
The problem with this scenario is the US has been trying to get its claws into Africa since the Bu$h administration under the guise of "fighting terrorism" in their bogus global war on terror. Boko Haram and the assorted "terrorist organizations" operating in Africa are merely pretexts for the US to set up bases and military operations on the continent. It is all part of a nefarious scam to enable the US and its allies to bum rush the world under the auspices of being the world's police going after terrorists.
The truth is, the "terrorists" are part of a long running Western scam used to further the ambitions of Western governments dating back to before WWI when the British used a fanatical Muslim sect to destabilize and undermine the Turkish-Ottoman Empire in what would become known as the "Middle East". The sect known as Wahhabi after their fanatical founder Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab. Wahhab was born around 1703 and he attempted to purge Islam of ideas and practices that arose after the third century that Wahhab considered heresy, secular and un-Muslim. "Wahhab was further dismayed at the widespread laxity in adhering to traditional Islamic laws: questionable practices like the ones above were allowed to continue, whereas the religious devotions which Islam did require were being ignored. This created indifference to the plight of widows and orphans, adultery, lack of attention to obligatory prayers, and failure to allocate shares of inheritance fairly to women. Wahhab characterized all this as being typical of jahiliyya, an important term in Islam which refers to the barbarism and state of ignorance which existed prior to the coming of Islam. Wahhab thus identified himself with the Prophet Muhammad and at the same time connected his society with what Muhammad worked to overthrow." Wahhabism and Wahhabi Islam: How Wahhabi Islam Differs from Sunni, Shia Islam http://atheism.about.com/od/islamicsects/a/wahhabi.htm
What made Wahhab so radical was his solution to Muslim apostasy was murder. "Because so many Muslims lived (so he claimed) in jahiliyya, al-Wahhab accused them of not being true Muslims after all. Only those who followed the strict teachings of al-Wahhab were truly Muslims because only they still followed the path laid out by Allah. Accusing someone of not being a true Muslim is significant because it is forbidden for one Muslim to kill another; but if someone is not a true Muslim then killing them (in war or in an act of terrorism) becomes licit. It would be hard to underestimate the importance of this principle to modern terrorists and extremists." ibid
Wahhab forged an alliance with Muhammed Ibn Saud, a chief of a tribe of desert raiders (thugs and robbers) in Najd, Ibn Saud. The deal protected Wahhab from various local leaders and Wahhab's followers pledged loyalty and tithes to Al Saud. Later Saud's descendants allied themselves with the British prior to and during WWI to undermine the Turkish Ottoman Empire and take over the territory the Ottoman Empire held.
The British took over the lands formerly occupied by the Ottoman Empire and set up the House of Saud as their puppets and proxies in Saudi Arabia. The House of Saud continued their alliance with the Wahhabi fanatics to the present day. The British hit the jackpot when oil was discovered in Saudi Arabia in 1933. The Wahhab -Saud relationship continued to flourish even today.
Following WWII the United States became the major heir to European imperialism. The US struck a deal with the House of Saud. In exchange for protection of the Kingdom, its Saud rulers and Wahhab supporters (protection formally provided by the British) the House of Saud agreed to sell oil in US dollars only; thus creating today's Petrodollar.
Meanwhile the Wahhabist fanatics who took up arms in support of the House of Saud and their British backers to oust the Turks (remember the movie Lawrance of Arabia?) maintained their tight relationship with the royal family to this very day. The US and its Western allies turned to the House of Saud and its Wahhab cohorts when they were looking for proxies and patsies against Russia during the Cold War. The Wahhabi had already spread their fanatical form of Islam into Eastern Europe and Asia centuries before.
The US recruited Osama bin-Laden who was a Wahhabi and many like him to form the Mujahedeen and the US CIA funneled money arms and training to them through the Saudi and Pakistani governments as they used them to fight Russia in Afghanistan. With the success of the Russian campaign, the US CIA stepped up the use of Wahhabi fanatics to destabilize regimes by funding, arming and training them. Radical Islam has also been used to traffic drugs and destabilize sovereign states. "The International Community has stated on numerous occasions that organized crime groups originating from the Balkans pose one of the main security threats to the Union (Council of the EU, 2003; Europol, 2006; UNODC, 2008). Moreover, the fast expansion of radical Islamist networks in the Balkans has become another point of concern after 1991. In weak post-conflict states Wahhabis have been using radical Islam as a platform for political ideas and activities as well as to legitimize political, economic and social behavior.

The US helped the radical Islamic fanatics cause mischief in Central Russia, Yugoslavia, Kosovo and Bosnia. Which explains why Putin drew a line in the sand against ISIS, ISIL and Daesh fanaticism in Syria. He knows what they are capable of.
"In over 100 pages of testimony, filed in a federal court in New York earlier this week, Moussaui drops several House of Saud-related bombs. Not least that among leading al-Qaeda donors prior to 9/11 we find former Saudi intel chief Prince Turki al-Faisal (also a former great buddy of Osama bin Laden); notorious former ambassador to the US and failed sponsor of hardcore jihadis in Syria, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, aka Bandar Bush; darling of Western markets (and Rupert Murdoch) Prince al-Waleed bin Talal; and a who's who of Saudi Arabia's top Wahhabi clerics. None of this is any novelty for those among us who since Afghanistan in the 1980s have been following the extraordinarily murky adventures of Wahhabi-sponsored/derived jihadism.
The information is even more relevant when compared to an upcoming book by Michael Springmann - the former head of the US visa section in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. In Visas for al-Qaeda: CIA Handouts that Rocked the World, Springmann essentially details how, "during the 1980s, the CIA recruited and trained Muslim operatives to fight the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. Later, the CIA would move those operatives from Afghanistan to the Balkans, and then to Iraq, Libya, and Syria, traveling on illegal US visas. These US-backed and trained fighters would morph into an organization that is synonymous with jihadist terrorism: al-Qaeda."

When the US and its thug allies used fanatical Wahhabi foot soldiers to overthrew Muammar Gaddafi in Libya many of the fanatics left Libya and migrated into other areas. This brings us to Obama sending US troops into Africa. Many of the fanatics spread their radical fundamentalism to Africa. Keep in mind they are being supplied, protected, funded and used by the West to destabilize countries that have resources the US/West covets, pose a threat to US, Western or Israeli hegemony or as a pretext to pump up the US arms manufacturers contracts, and the US police warfare state.
Boko Haram is one such case. Even though they are not Saudi or Arab they subscribe to the radical tenants of Wahhabism. " Similarly to ISIS, Boko Haram bases its ideology on the Sunni faction of Wahhabism. Its core mandate to oppose Westernisation and, principally, Western education, now has a more general aim to quash and humiliate the Nigerian government . Boko Haram’s non-subordinate attitude towards the government or laws is typical to Wahhabism, placing itself far above the kafirs’ span of influence. Just like in the case of ISIS, Boko Haram is led by a charismatic and powerful persona – Abubakar Shekau, who, in 2015, was listed in Time magazine as one of world’s 100 most influential people. Since the start of Boko Haram by its founder Mohammed Yusuf, the organisation is believed to have killed over 10,000 people. Today, the audacity of Abubakar Shekau only escalates the degree to which Boko Haram is feared in the region."
