Mosul Assault: The GMCIR Took Mosul in June of 2014 – Was Converted to “ISIS took Mosul” by Complicit Media

by Scott Creighton

Here is an example of how they twist the truth so that you don’t what’s really going on and who we are really attacking. In Syria, our “moderate” terrorists are called “rebels” and we support their “revolution” against a “tyrannical regime” while in Iraq we call a real revolutionary movement, the General Military Council of Iraq Revolutionaries (GMCIR), “terrorists” and “ISIS” and bomb them and their supportive civilian base into submission in support of a real dictator, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi (currently but it started when they opposed al-Maliki).

Check this out from Press TV:

“Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced the start of the operations to liberate Mosul from Daesh terrorists on Sunday.

The city fell to the Takfiri Daesh terrorists (“ISIS”) in June 2014 shortly after they unleashed a campaign of terror and destruction in the northern and western parts of Iraq.” Press TV Oct. 17, 2016

Takfiri “ISIS” terrorists took Mosul in June of 2014, huh?

Following the Iraqi armed opposition’s seizure of Mosul on June 10 (2014) and the subsequent capture of large areas of Ninewah, Salah al-Din and Ta’mim governorates from the Nuri al-Maliki government, several Iraqi organizations have proclaimed their role in the fighting. Emerging as one of the most powerful Iraqi armed opposition organizations in this rebel offensive is al-Majlis al-Askari al-Amm li-Thuwar al-Iraq (GMCIR – General Military Council for Iraqi Revolutionaries) and its affiliated tribal militias, organized as al-Majlis al-Askari li-Thuwar al-Asha’ir al-Iraq (Military Council of Iraqi Tribal Revolutionaries). GMCIR members state that the organization has existed since the summer of 2013 and announced its existence in January 2014 in order to respond militarily against Iraqi security forces for firing on Sunni demonstrators in Anbar governorate. [1]

GMCIR members assert that their leadership is composed predominately of a network of Sunni former Iraq Army officers of tribal Arab origin that maintain a hierarchical chain-of-command inside Iraq in order to oversee the day-to-day operations of the organization. They estimate that there are 75,000 fighters affiliated with the GMCIR, mostly concentrated in Anbar, Salah al-Din and Ninewah governorates, with GMCIR-affiliated armed groups also located in Ta’mim, Baghdad, Diyala, Karbala, Dhi Qar and Maysan governorates. [2] GMCIR officers, including Iraqis exiled by sectarian conflict in their country, are also reported to be located throughout the Middle East region, including in Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (al-Mustaqbal [Beirut], January 17; al-Jazeera [Doha], January 16). [3]

Ideologically, the GMCIR is staunchly anti-Maliki and anti-Iranian” The Jamestown Foundation, June 26th, 2014

Would you look at that. They’re Sunni, not Takfiri like the current status quo story says. And, they aren’t “ISIS” or “Daesh” either. Our troops and the rest of the coalition are not attacking “ISIS” in Mosul. They are attacking the city itself for supporting the armed uprising against Nuri al-Maliki and Haider al-Abadi. We were afraid we were going to lose all the “business opportunities” in Iraq that Hillary Clinton spoke of in 2011, so we got involved. All we needed was a horrible boogeyman in order to justify it, so our hearts and minds operators created “ISIS”

  1. Media-contrived names like “ISIS”™ are designed to confuse. To sort them out, let us ignore the silly names, and note which side is cheered by the Western Empire. Then we can simply invert the adjectives.

    For example, according to the corporate media outlets…

    The U.S.-backed liberation of Mosul is “glorious,” and will be a “victory for democracy.”
    The Russian-backed liberation of Aleppo is a “war crime,” and will be a “victory for tyranny.”

    By inverting these, we can determine the truth…

    The U.S.-backed liberation of Mosul is war crime, and will be a victory for tyranny.
    The Russian-backed liberation of Aleppo is a glorious, and will be a victory for democracy.

    Failure to apply this simple technique leaves is confused. It makes us chatter about nothing. It makes us submissive. “Why is the USA praised for fighting ISIS in Mosul, but Russia is condemned for fighting ISIS in Aleppo? Oh well. I’ll just let the experts handle it.”

    What the U.S. calls “ISIS” in Aleppo consists if US-backed terrorist mercenaries that the USA has imported from abroad. They fight a proxy war for the USA against the Syrian government and people.

    What the U.S. calls “ISIS” in Mosul consists of native Iraqi Sunnis who are trying to avoid extermination by the native Kurds and Shi’ites. They fight a civil war, and are opposed by the USA.

    The Kurdish and Shi’ite sections of Iraq have oil. The Sunni section of Iraq does not. Therefore in 2014 the Sunnis invaded Mosul (in Kurdish territory) to get a share of the oil revenue. The USA is now attacking the Sunnis so the Kurds can return to power. The Kurds are pro-USA, and especially pro-Israel. Pro-Kurdish demonstrations in Europe and the USA usually include Israeli flags.

    • “What the U.S. calls “ISIS” in Mosul consists of native Iraqi Sunnis who are trying to avoid extermination by the native Kurds and Shi’ites. They fight a civil war, and are opposed by the USA. “

      That is a very clear and concise way to put it.

    • “Media-contrived names like ‘ISIS’™ are designed to confuse. To sort them out, let us ignore the silly names, and note which side is cheered by the Western Empire.”

      Absolutely. You ever notice Obama never says “ISIS?” He always says “ISIL.” And Fox News always insisted on calling Osama “Usama”, and who the hell knows how to spell al-Qaeda? It’s all designed to confuse, distract, make people believe that anyone with a Muslim sounding name is evil. It’s got the same power of “legalese” in turning people’s minds off and making them think, “this is too complicated to understand.” The reality is pretty damn simple. Western governments are sticking their noses where they don’t belong under the guise of fighting terrorism, and the “terrorists” are whoever they say they are.
