It’s been a few years since I was told of how the British Army armed Da’ish (ISIS) as far back as the Illegal Invasion of Iraq by members of the Staffordshire Regiment. It’s an account that got me first started as a Social Media Activist. When one gets hold of information like that, and yet there has been no sign of the information in any publication, it really changes a life. I’ve used facebook for years to mention it on discussion threads, from Anti War Pages, my own Newsfeed to Media Bombing all Media Internationally that was publishing anything on ISIS from 2014 onwards. I looked into sending a Press Release to the Guardian Newspaper etc., but quickly realised I needed to research on how to protect sources. The lads that talked to me were quickly warned off as news of my Social Media bombing got back to them via members of Staffordshire Regiment that were absorbed into other forces and on active duty. Jobs are lost, Military Prosecutions take place and all Pensions are taken away I was told. If I quoted sources. when joining the British Army a contract is signed and they can never talk about it. Officially. And for the first time in my life, I knew why I had seen so many homeless and messed up Ex Military, in reality, and in the Media. And if you have ever had the benefit of Counseling in any form, for bereavement or for whatever reason, then you will know the full benefit of talking about something that is on your mind, and given techniques to get through it. Members of the British Military cannot even talk to their families and friends. They signed a contract. And if they do, then they are finished. And can never claim their pension. And if they are injured, or suffer PTSD, they get nothing. And that’s after they have been arrested by Military Police, brought in and lynched for it.
I’m sure that many of you have heard of the Staffordshire Regiment. It was one of the oldest Regiments in Britain. Formed by merging the North and South Staffs Regiments they were the Prince of Wales Regiment.
“As part of the reorganisation of the infantry announced in 2004, it was announced that the Staffordshire Regiment would merge with the Cheshire Regiment and the Worcestershire and Sherwood Foresters Regiment into a new three-battalion regiment to be called the Mercian Regiment. On 1 September 2007, the Staffordshire Regiment’.became the 3rd Battalion, Mercian Regiment.
When you look up their deployment history, of course, nothing I will tell you here will be mentioned. In fact looking at that history, there are so many gaps in time it hits me of how many deployments are not published or known. Many of them apparently have lost their lives since in dangerous circumstances. I was told that one of the leaders of the regiment, his wife hasn’t heard from him for years. He has simply ‘disappeared’. Whether he is wandering the streets as a homeless person, unable to cope with life, what is in his mind, or disappeared for some other reason, nobody knows. But I gathered at the time, that the ex Staffordshire Regiment members, in general, were not happy. Are not happy. I was made aware that some of them are now what is described to me as “Mercenaries” which is why so many of them have lost their lives. They are contracted by UK “Blackwater” type Agencies. The money is good apparently. They get paid thousands of pounds a week instead of British Military Wages. The job becomes addictive due to the amount of money, and the rules are a lot more lax. For example, a sufferer of an acute mental illness can still go on tour. And earn a fortune. What I am about to tell you would give most of them mental illness these days I am sure. After the mass publicity on mainstream media about Da’ish (ISIS). Because they were tasked to arm them.
They are not very complimentary about the USA Military and Foreign Policy. I was given one example of the campaign in Rwanda and the Tutsi Hutu Genocide. The Staffordshire Regiment deployed to Rwanda as part of the Joint Military partnership with the United States. They landed, deployed and walked into a nightmare. Confronted with barbaric behaviour by the of the Huti after some reconnaissance, they started to kill the perpetrators. I was given a description of the Regiment moving in on one village to scenes of Huti men chopping the breasts off Tutsi women they had rounded up with machetes. And other horrific atrocities. The reaction of the soldiers and their command was to protect the victims and fight the offenders. This carried on for a short time only. Because the American troops moved in and went berserk because the Staffordshire Regiment were killing and fighting the wrong people. They were instructed to assist the Tutsi to fight the unarmed Huti. Yes, you are reading this correctly. They were instructed to assist the barbarians to butcher unarmed Hutu civilians, who were being genocided by Machetes.
Yes, the US Military, went berserk at the Staffordshire Regiment, because the Staffordshire Regiment when deployed, instead of protecting unarmed civilians from a genocide, was supposed to be assisting it. The Staffordshire Regiment was sent back to the UK in disgrace. For assisting the unarmed civilians and trying to protect them from a genocide.
“The Rwandan genocide, also known as the genocide against the Tutsi, was a genocidal mass slaughter of Tutsi inRwanda by members of the Hutu majority government. An estimated 500,000 to 1,000,000 Rwandans were killed during the 100-day period from 7 April to mid-July 1994, constituting as many as 70% of the Tutsi population. Additionally, 30% of the Pygmy Batwa were killed. The genocide and widespread slaughter of Rwandans ended when the Tutsi-backed and heavily armed Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) led by Paul Kagame took control of the country. An estimated 2,000,000 Rwandans, mostly Hutus, were displaced and became refugees.”
Fast forward to the Iraq Invasion of 2003. The Staffordshire Regiment was tasked, I am told, with the “Disposal of all Arms from all Sides of the Invasion”. And I have no reason to doubt this. Due to the description of the task. The disposal of all arms from all sides of the invasion included Iraq Weapons and equipment. As well as the US, UK weapons and equipment. Having been tasked to do this job, it was top secret and required the members of the Regiment to do something they loved. They had to go and do the job and not get seen doing it. There was to be no equipment, such as tents or accommodation and no rations. Effectively they had to disappear, melt into the night and the background and not be seen. Food had to be caught and slaughtered and stolen and gleaned. If there are any Iraqis that lost livestock and blamed their neighbours for it. You may be wrong.
So what happened to the arms from all sides of the Iraq War? It makes sense that a recently invaded Country that has been successfully occupied, with irate population, would not be left with any small or large arms. It would make sense I suppose to load those arms onto occupying Military transport and remove it from the Country. I don’t agree with the Illegal Invasion of Iraq, and I am not advocating this by the way. I am just pointing out some facts. Facts of War and Occupation.
Well, what happened to those arms, from “all sides of the Iraq Invasion” is that they were buried. In the desert area. Literally buried under sand, soil and deserted area. And when in 2014 Dai’sh started to take hold in Iraq and Syria in huge numbers, well armed, and Activists and Media were blaming Arab Countries for that, (along with reports that US Military was dropping arms to them from Helicopters), you are all wrong. Totally and utterly wrong.
Which is why, when I started looking at Dai’sh (ISIS), on social media, to look for Evidence, I wasn’t looking in Raqqa. Because I had already deduced from my Ex Staffordshire Regiment sources, that the much publicised ISIS HQ of Raqqa, wasn’t the HQ of their Military. I had looked at a Map of Iraq and compared it to the areas where there were Military Battles in the Iraq War. I was “aware” that they had to be armed via Iraq. Because that is where the Staffordshire Regiment buried all arms from all sides of the Iraq Invasion. And I decided that area had to host a large town or city that could hide barracks and a large operation. I had looked at Sattelite Footage on Google Maps. And I decided immediately to start looking at Mosul.
Dai’sh (ISIS) was armed by the Staffordshire Regiment of Her Majesty’s British Military, some time in or after 2003. Arms that were buried, in the desert, just outside Mosul. And those arms came from all sides of the Illegal Invasion of Iraq.
