Cartalucci builds a well-documented argument that the US Empire will continue to use terrorist armies such as ISIS to advance the interests of Wall Street and its insatiable appetite for profits and power. One of its major interests is thwarting the power of China. Furthermore, this strategy does not depend on who occupies the White House. That is precisely why the Deep State constantly attack Donald Trump through their media corporations: to bend his rather parochial business interests toward their international hegemonic interests.
The Deep State includes "think tanks" such as the Council on Foreign Affairs, Carnegie Institute, Brookings, etc, and the actions of their secret agencies (CIA, NSA, etc) that often hide behind numerous NGOs and direct terrorist proxy armies.
The Islamic State “coincidentally” appearing in virtually every geopolitical theater on Earth US interests are impeded or challenged by local and regional interests helps explain why not only the Islamic State exists in the first place, but explains how it has managed to survive and continue to thrive despite multinational efforts by nations like Russia, Syria, and Iran to defeat it.
Through state sponsorship, the Islamic State’s source of logistical, political, and military power ultimately lies in Washington, London, Brussels, Ankara, Riyadh, and Doha – where Russian-Syrian-Iranian military and political power cannot reach.
For those wondering where the Islamic State will strike next, one needs only to look at a world map and identify where else US interests are being impeded by an increasingly multipolar world unwilling to yield to Wall Street and Washington’s corporate-financier monopolies.
