Russell Brand on ISIS and my thoughts on why our leaders are hypocrites when it comes to Islamic State and Saudi Arabia
By Dark Politricks
Whether you like Russell Brand or not I would urge you to subscribe to the Trews YouTube channel to hear his point of view. Whether you agree or disagree with him on various matters it is always good to get alternative points of views on important matters.
In the video at the bottom of the page Russell Brand dissects the recent upgrading of the terror threat in the UK. This was due to the beheading of a US journalist by a man with a UK accent.
As he rightly says, Saudi Arabia has beheaded numerous people since August the 4th yet we continue to sell weapons and do big business with that Islamic State. If the man had a Saudi accent it probably wouldn’t have made the news like the many beheadings that happen all the time in that terror state.
Why is it that we don’t stop our relationships with such counties as Saudi Arabia and Qatar and others that fund the these terrorist groups that David Cameron wants more working class English and American people to go and fight.
Now that these groups have crossed the border into Iraq and become ISIS they suddenly become the enemy. People who were “bravely” fighting Assad are now “terrorists”. Groups we trained and armed are now in Iraq causing havoc under the banner of the Islamic State.
As Russell Brand rightly says. For people like millionaire David Cameron, and his fellow Etonion friends, who are directors and shareholders in arms companies and other businesses who benefit from wars, to tell us to fight another war is hypocritical.
For Cameron to lecture us that we must go over to Iraq and lose more freedoms and liberties at home due to another UK/US foreign policy that has gone awry, just like the arming of the Mujahideen in Afghanistan who then became the Taliban and al-Qaeda, is pure bullshit.
He isn’t going to go an fight for his belief that we must go to war with ISIS.
No it will be the poor, working classes, who join the army as the only way out of communities that have been decimated by Tory policies, that will be doing the fighting for him. When our leaders send their own sons and daughters to war zones and don’t skip military service like many US Presidents or politicians have, then we can look at them with more respect when it comes to war.
Chicken Hawks telling me that I must go and fight for their own foreign policy blowbacks can fuck off and fight themselves. I am tired of people who haven’t seen real violence telling people who have to go and fight. When you have heard a knife enter a body, the sound and memory stays with you forever. When you have killed another human being it stays with you.
This is why so many ex-generals and military leaders are against war whilst people who have never been in one are for them.
The millions of people who marched against the war in Iraq through London a decade ago knew that war wasn’t the answer. Some people, like Tony Blair and David Cameron, still claim that our interference in the region, in Iraq, Iran and Syria hasn’t led to this creation of the monster called ISIS or Islamic State, they are blatantly wrong.
The only solution to a regional crisis such as the formation of the Islamic State has to come from the region itself, without us sending more troops to the region. We can help by stopping our crusades on former leaders who were our friends only a few years ago and instead attacking the real enemies in the region such as Saudi Arabia and Qatar who are funding these terrorist groups.
Here are just a few ideas for how regional countries could help.
Israel could do itself a massive PR job favour and use it’s massive armed forces to attack ISIS instead of Palestinians for instance. The US has spent billions giving Israel tons of fighter planes, missile systems and other arms. Why can’t Israel see the real terror on it’s borders rather than the poor, malnourished, suffering people of Gaza, and do the world a favour by going after them instead?
Iran could be allowed to help Iraq, along with Assad, to form a pincer movement on ISIS for instance. We could help by stopping to claim Assad is a war criminal without facts and remember our leaders used to have dinner with the same people we are now trying to remove e.g Assad and former leaders Gaddafi and Saddam Hussein.

Donald Rumsfeld meeting Saddam Hussein
Tony Blair meeting Col Gaddafi
If we stopped labeling Iran and Syria as the enemy and realised that they could actually be the solution to a problem we caused then they could become rehabilitated members of the international community again.
And most of all we need to realise that countries like Saudi Arabia and Qatar are funding and arming these groups whilst we make billions from arms sales to these countries.
Let’s remember that if the US Government’s story of what happened on 9.11 is correct. Then the people who attacked the country was Saudi Arabia not Afghanistan or Iraq.
Logically the US should have gone to war with this despot backward 7th century country, where people are beheaded or mutilated daily as punishment for crimes we don’t even send people to prison for.
A country where thousands of Princes and Royal members live a life of luxury, holiday in Dubai, send for models to have sex with or pay millions to have famous pop stars sing at their parties. All whilst the majority of the population live in absolute poverty.
This was the country the US should have attacked if the US conclusions on who the terrorists on 9.11 were was correct.
However that would have meant the Bush family falling out with their favourite despots, Bandar-Bush incorporated has been causing havoc for years. The Bushes and the leaders of Saudi Arabia were too closely linked and yet the US claimed 19 Saudi hijackers were behind the 9.11 attacks. Hypocrites and liars.
Lets listen to Russell Brand talk about ISIS and David Cameron’s support for more US/UK war as the solution to it.
