The West fights ISIS? Have a “SWIFT” Look!

Financial shutdown in the USA doesn"t affect financing terror abroad

“Master! The pain is great. / I called the ghosts / I will now not get rid of.”
(J.W. von Goethe: “The wizard’s trainee”, 1827)

The West claims it was seeking to finally destroy ISIS, to “fight terrorism”, as the NATO-propaganda (over here called “free press”) is constantly feeding us. Proven by facts, nothing is more false than this.

Obviously the West aims to achieve full control over their assets, their puppets – the group which in the west is known as “ISIS” while in the arab world the group is called by the name “DAESH”. The West’s goal seems to be the containment of ISIS in the east of Syria and west of Iraq. Obviously, containing ISIS is not exactly the same as destroying ISIS, this should be pretty clear. Why does the West want to contain and not destroy ISIS? Short answer: the West is not that stupid to exterminate its assets.

Considered under the pretext of “fighting terrorism”, the results of the US-led coalition’s “fight against ISIS” are disastrous – for Syria: By bombing schools, hospitals, bridges, factories, power plants, water-pumping stations, densely populated residential areas while ‘accidentially’ dropping tons of weapons to ISIS, the terror-gang was not defeated but grew, instead, fed by the USA, EU, Turkey and Saudi Arabia. But what sank into rubble was the infrastructure of Syria and Iraq, and civilians had been killed (and are continously being killed) by those who claim to want an end to the war they have started.

Destroying Syrian infrastructue weakens the ability of the Syrian state to fullfil its tasks. Killing civilians increases the despair and fear of the people and eventually weakens their ability to lead normal lives, so that many of them leave Syria to find security elsewhere – this is the planned “brain drain” which sees Europe’s big companies as its profiteers.

In the end the US and its allies bombed Syrians for ISIS and dropped weapons to ISIS, simultaneously. According to western propaganda, this was not intended, so a clear mind would ask why it has been done, then. Regarding the plot behind, it was and is no failiure at all. This situation is the very result that had to be acieved by the west to divide Syria from Iraq and to undermine Syrian-Iraqi and Iranian partnership and cooperation. The west simply wants to cut the fertile crescent into 2 parts with a fat, aggressive entity inbetween, driving a wedge between Syria and Iraq. This entity is ISIS / Daesh. Or the “Islamic State” (IS). We already thought we would not need any further evidence for the western, turkish, saudi and qatari conspiracy with ISIS when the head of the turkish secret service came up and advised us to accept ISIS as a non-defeatable reality and to stop Rusia from exterminating Daesh / ISIS / ISIL / IS…

So, why do the UK and France now head to bomb ISIS? And why is Germany signalling to join the western “coalition”, whilst it is ongoingly funding ISIS by buying the stolen syrian oil? The outcome, most presumably, will be the usual: far too many bombs, far too many civilian casualties (or “collateral damages” in NATO-Orwellian newspeak), far too much destruction, chaos and despair – but far too few results that would positively count.

If we assume that there was a western wish to only contain ISIS, which seems to be the most logical explanation for the western actions, this also means that there is infact no interest to end its existence.

In order to appropriatly accuse the west of using ISIS as a tool for neo-colonial aims, we have to give evidence to prove our accusations as being subtantial.

And there are tons of evidences of military support for ISIS. But one fact has not yet been that viral: the support of ISIS by allowing ISIS to use “SWIFT“.

What is SWIFT?

SWIFT describes itself as “the global provider of secure financial messaging service.

SWIFT about SWIFT: “SWIFT is a member-owned cooperative through which the financial world conducts its business operations with speed, certainty and confidence. More than 10,800 financial institutions and corporations in over 200 countries trust us every day to exchange millions of standardised financial messages. This activity involves the secure exchange of proprietary data while ensuring its confidentiality and integrity.

Our role is two-fold. We provide the proprietary communications platform, products and services that allow our customers to connect and exchange financial information securely and reliably. We also act as the catalyst that brings the financial community together to work collaboratively to shape market practice, define standards and consider solutions to issues of mutual interest.

SWIFT enables its customers to automate and standardise financial transactions, thereby lowering costs, reducing operational risk and eliminating inefficiencies from their operations. By using SWIFT customers can also create new business opportunities and revenue streams.”

Just follow the money. If you look at the figures, you can see that SWIFT allocates the financial transaction messages of more than 200 nations and 11,075 live users, producing a total number of 526,683,026 messages in October 2015.

Thanks to its well-organised oil-business with Turkey, Israel and the EU, ISIS is being said to make at around 1.5 million US-Dollars per day. At least. Cutting off ISIS from the supply of money therefor is one choice amongst others in the war against this brutal bunch of killers. Ending SWIFT serving as the “catalyst” (SWIFT about SWIFT) between ISIS and its funders will end ISIS. A simple way, a good way, easy, quick and definite. It will not cost the precious life of any Syrian soldier to achieve it. It won’t destroy infrastructure. So, if we regard cutting off ISIS from its funders as a chance to get rid of this pest, the question arises: Why no one seriouly did this yet? I think, you already know the answer.

The West is interested in keeping ISIS as a tool to further destabilise Syria – this is proven by the statement of US- intel from 2012 when they found out that all “opposition” in Syria is not at all moderate but dominated by brutal wahhabi groups and that these wahhabi groups can be used as proxies far better than the phantom-army of “FSA”. Since fall 2014, the US-led coalition bombs anything in Syria except ISIS, and ISIS even gained more ground more power in this time. The US-army did not take out ISIS, which had been the proclaimed aim of all the bombings. The US-airforce had not been allowed to bomb these thugs ad the US spy-satelites did not manage to detct them driving around in sparkling new Toyota trucks at bright daylight in plain desert.

How can we insinuate that the west would take off ISIS from SWIFT, taking in consideration the proven western support for ISIS and the west’s geopolitical and economical interests – which are to get rid of souvereign nations and leaders and take over control of ressources?

As long as SWIFT still is in service for ISIS, no Western nation nor their regional buddies can really claim to be engaged in fighting ISIS. They are in fact terrorist masters and sponsors.

If you want to know why there is still ISIS-terror in Syria, just go for the money-flow. Just trace the SWIFT-line, a rat-line indeed.

    Addendum: German state-run “ZDF”-TV-channel tonight announced: the federal government of Germany is planning to send 1.200soldiers – as BOOTS ON THE GROUND – to Syria, joining the german “support” for the french “fight against ISIS” aka the bombingof hospitals and infrastructure in Syria.

    I feel utterly ashamed – this is an OPEN aggression of my nation’s government, a bunch of sociopathical warmongering masmurderers! – against the nation of Syria – excused as an act of “self defense”!

    Even if you think people can’t be dumber….
