Posting a Diary Entry
Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as
is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.
When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.
If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.
ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries
that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.
The snout of the latest slimy creature trying to slither out of the cesspool of Are You Fucking Kidding Me? has begun to appear.
This week as I was checking media from the region I noticed a new theme developing.
And can you guess what it is?
ISIS(IS) is a cunning Iranian plot.
Now that ISIS(IS) has become a serious problem in the Middle East, not just in Syria any more that is, and has even begun to challenge Saudi Arabian legitimacy, it's all a cunning Iranian plot.
That's right. It was Iran's masterful manipulations that:
- got Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Kuwait to sponsor ISIS for years, and got Turkey to help them do it too,
- got tens of thousands of jihadists from around the world to go to Syria to join ISIS,
- got the US to be completely unaware that all this was happening - they were too busy looking for 'moderate' rebels,
- got al-Qaeda to first legitimize and later condemn ISIS,
- got al-Nusra and other rebel and jihadist groups in Syria to ally themselves with ISIS - until they had their asses handed to them, and
- got Sunni Arab tribes, Baathists, and insurrectionists in Iraq to ally themselves with ISIS for the recent offensive in Iraq.
But don't worry the Sunni Arab tribes, Baathists, and insurrectionists in Iraq know all about it now, and they are ready, fingers on triggers, to destroy ISIS(IS) when the time is right - after they use ISIS to topple the Maliki government.
I wonder how long it will take for the mainstream morons in the US to memorize the script.
