The alleged suicide bomber, Salman Abedi, was part of an extremist group, the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, that thrived in Manchester and was cultivated and used by MI5 for more than 20 years.The LIFG is proscribed by Britain as a terrorist organisation which seeks a “hardline Islamic state” in Libya and “is part of the wider global Islamist extremist movement, as inspired by al-Qaida”.The “smoking gun” is that when Theresa May was Home Secretary, LIFG jihadists were allowed to travel unhindered across Europe and encouraged to engage in “battle”: first to remove Mu’ammar Gadaffi in Libya, then to join al-Qaida affiliated groups in Syria.
Our message to the West and to the international community is this: don’t act as though you are blind to Assad’s crimes. As you penalise Isis, you must penalise Assad’s regime in equal measure.

No nation in the history of the world has had so many enemies to keep track of as the United States has now
I would tell them that their voices are not ignored and their efforts to expose the ISIS-US partnership is not in vain. I would let them know that many of us here in America are aware and many of us have worked tirelessly to expose what we call the ISIS psyop while others simply call it political propaganda lies. I would also convey to them that the Western mainstream media has done everything it can to silence not only the independent and alternative media but the voices of many people around the world including Iraq.
As the old adage puts it, misery needs company. And there is much misery that the Turkish and Saudi leadership have to console each other about.Both Ankara and Riyadh have seen their military schemes in the region turn decidedly sour.
