The US is using jihadist terrorism to destabilise Asian countries

Summary of Disinformation

It is likely that US and Saudi intelligence ordered the recent Easter Day attacks perpetrated by jihadist terrorists in Sri Lanka against Christians in churches and hotels. The US aim to destabilize Sri Lanka because the latter is one of Beijing’s main partners in the One Belt One Road Initiative and is moving into China’s sphere of influence.

It is also probable that ISIS attacks in the Philippines – which took place when Manila was trying to break away from its alliance with the US and to draw closer to China – were supported by US intelligence. It also likely that US and Saudi intelligence have exploited religious tensions in Thailand to destabilize this country, which is also an important partner in China’s Belt and Road Initiative.

US, British and Saudi intelligence services have supported and used jihadist terrorist groups to achieve geopolitical goals in countries such as Syria, Libya, Afghanistan and Bosnia.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives that US and other Western intelligence services are supporting and using jihadist groups to advance geopolitical goals.

There is no evidence that the US, UK nor other Western governments and their intelligence services have supported radical Islamist terrorist groups in any region of the world.

On the contrary, ever since the September 11 terrorist attacks the US and its allies have been engaged in a enormous military and intelligence efforts to counter Al Qaeda, ISIS and other radical Islamist terrorist groups around the world. Read more here and here.
