Disinfo: US brought ISIS when Al Qaeda went outside the script

Summary

[The United States] created ISIS as an alternative to the old Al Qaeda after draining it and taking back the role assigned to it, and dismissing it from service when the later veered the script.

There isn’t a single time that America interfered in a country without tampering with it, tearing it apart, and provoking wars and strife.

Disproof

No evidence is given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative claiming that the US is supporting or working together with ISIS in the Middle East. 

This message is part of a broader conspiracy theory alleging that the United States has created and supported many jihadi terrorist organisations and controls global terrorism

In reality, the US is committed to fighting terrorist organisations, such as Daesh and Al-Qaeda. Ever since the September 11th terrorist attacks, the US and its allies have been engaged in an military and intelligence efforts to counter Al Qaeda, ISIS and other radical Islamist terrorist groups around the world

Read here similar cases claiming that ISIS has been supported by US, British, French and Israeli intelligence services in order to demolish Syria and that Al Baghdadi was an American product.

The New World Order is Kissinger’s solution to defeat Covid-19

Henry Kissinger, the Zionist pioneer of US imperial foreign policy, warned in an op-ed that no government alone, not even the United States, can defeat the Covid-19 alone, which implies that the New World Order that he always preached must continue.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory with an anti-Semitic element, supported by no evidence and based on a false claim. In the mentioned op-ed [published in the Wall Street Journal on April 3, 2020], former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger didn’t mention any ‘New World Order’ at all, and the article is rather a call to “safeguard the principles of the liberal world order” from the risks posed by the Covid-19 crisis.

This is part of Russia’s disinformation campaign on coronavirus, mixed with a recurrent false narrative about a Shadow Government ruling the world and promoting its own agenda, this time called the New World Order. This narrative aims to question the legitimacy of democracy and Western institutions. The Kremlin-led disinformation campaign on coronavirus has been well documented by both media and governments, and some of its elements were widely reported by Russian and international publications and by the European External Action Service.

US created Coronavirus back in 2015

Chinese experts discovered in the archive an article published in 2015 in the “Nature Medicine” journal, which confirms that the US scientists have been able to create a new type of Coronavirus, which has a direct impact on humans.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory with no evidence given, based on recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about biological weapons and that the outbreak of COVID-19 coronavirus being man-made, in this case,  by the Americans.

There is no basis to the claim that the 2019-nCoV coronavirus is man-made. Volume 9 of medical Journal “Emerging Microbes & Infections” published a study in 2020 entitled “No credible evidence supporting claims of the laboratory engineering of SARS-CoV-2” in which rumours about the epidemic being constructed inside laboratories are clearly dismissed. Regarding the 2015 study mentioned in the article, this is also addressed in the medical Journal as follows:

Anglo-Saxon owners behind La Stampa’s attack on Russian doctors

There is a rather simple answer to why La Stampa decided to engage in dirty accusations against the Russian medics in Italy. The paper is long owned by Fiat, but today, a hundred percent of La Stampa stock belongs to the American auto-corporation Chrysler. The chairman of the board of Fiat is New York resident John Elkann and the CEO is Michael Manley from the county Kent in England. Anglo-American capital squeezed out all Italians already in 2014, taking control over La Stampa. Behind the Italian newspaper’s provocative attacks on Russian doctors stand its Anglo-Saxon owners.

Disproof

A false statement on the ownership structure of La Stampa. La Stampa is owned by the Italian holding GEDI group; a public company, registered on the Milan Stock Exchange. The Agnelli-family, founders of the FIAT automotive corporation and minority shareholders in Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, has large share in GEDI.

The editorial independence of La Stampa is guaranteed in the paper's charter.
