From Arab Spring to Islamic Caliphate – Coincidence, Opportunity or Design?

We do not usually partake in much politicking online, however recent events have forced our hands.

Conspiracy theories; who subscribes to such idiosyncrasies? The belief that nothing in life is by chance, that everything follows a hidden agenda, be it Alien, Mason or otherwise.

Let us examine the facts:

1) For the longest time, in all our life time (those born in the 80s/90s) the Middle East has been a hornets nest of strife – from the presence of the Israeli aggressor on Palestinian lands to the multitude of secular divisions that fueled countless wars and bloodshed in the region.

2) During that period, terrorism began to loom. On September 11, 2001, terrorism in the name of religion reared its ugly head, bringing about a new wave of fear to an already stressed global populace that began striking around the world.

[this event in itself is already rife with several conspiracy theories]

3) 17 December 2010, a Tunisian street vendor by the name of Mohamed Bouazizi, in the face of injustice, sets himself alight and unwittingly became the martyred catalyst of the Tunisian uprising (link), the first ripple in the wave that would eventually be referred to as the “Arab Spring”.

4) Egypt, Syria, Yemen, Libya followed suite (link).

I myself cannot believe that the single actions of one man miles and miles away can have such a diverse domino effect as to lead to the toppling of world leaders who had been in power for DECADES, in excess of my own time on this earth.

During the chaos, another incident happened that greatly contributed to where we are now:

5) The death of Osama Bin Laden – May 2, 2011 (link).

Which eventually lead to the birth of the new defacto Terrorist Organization: ISIL aka ISIS aka IS (more names than a PR campaign can spew).

According to this CBS report (link), the “group” was born in blood at Camp Bucca, which was known as the largest, and one of the toughest, American prisons in Iraq.

… at least 12 of the top leaders of ISIS served time at Camp Bucca, including the man who would become the group’s leader, Abu Bakr al Baghdadi. CBS News obtained photos of 10 of them in Bucca’s yellow prison jumpsuits.

U.S. officials who worked at Bucca told us they were concerned that prisoners were becoming radicalized. The prison has been described as “a pressure cooker for extremism.”

Given the US Army’s propensity for by-any-means-necessary tactics, why were these radical elements allowed to survive and thrive? Everyone can recall the infamous Blackwater incident (link), and Abu Gharib Prison (link), there must be countless other cases where prisoners “disappeared”, those deemed too unstable or too dangerous. It would seem, for all intents and purposes, that Camp Bucca was not as much a PRISON as it was the melting pot from which the “group” sprung. Per that last statement, “pressure cooker for extremism”, you do not put such combustible elements together unless you are aware of what might emerge.

The “group” started gaining prominence AFTER the death of the “Serpent’s head”, and quite recently began appearing in highly televised and produced videos showing decapitations and burning people alive.

The “group” has flourished in areas where once-upon-a-time there was an iron first rule, however as a result of the Arab Spring, a power vacuum took place that funneled everything into a black hole of indecision, fear and murder.

For all intents and purposes, Libya is a war-zone, a country torn against itself. As is the case in Syria, and Iraq, and Yemen.

It does not seem likely, even for a second, to believe that everything that happened was a result of a street vendor taking their own life.

The Arab Spring was a success in Tunis, partial in Egypt and a failure elsewhere, where pretenders to the throne arose to challenge the status quo.

Also, keep the following in mind; the armies of the Middle East (not to be confused with the 5 Armies of Middle Earth):



Of the 13, the largest in terms of Active Frontline personnel, 3 of which are currently for all intents and purposes, immobilized; Yemen, Syria & Iraq.

Of the other 3, two are already embroiled in skirmishes across their borders (Egypt & Lebanon) and Jordan has been drawn into the fold with the murder of its pilot.

The question arises, despite having knowledge and information regarding weapon’s caches, training schools, depots and other strategic intel, why would Egypt and Jordan hold off on taking action until the murders of their delegates?
