This independent Canadian sociologist and geopolitical analyst has been focusing his attention on the Middle East and North Africa for quite some time. Now he offers his interpretation of the strange events currently occurring in Iraq and nearby areas. One things is certain: the biggest capitalist gang of all, known widely as the Empire, loves to promote conflicts and hostile divisions as a part of its divide and conquer strategy to control the fossil fuel rich Middle East.
The anti-government forces ravaging Iraq and Syria are mostly the same overzealous or gung-ho head choppers, rapists, extortionists, thugs, and cannibals that were pillaging and senselessly devastating the Syrian countryside with the aim of occupying Damascus in 2011. These ever morphing and constantly name changing groups are not new at all. They have just been rebranded.
