Truth Divides

Is it just me or don’t it seem strange that presumably the second most powerful guy (well in title at least) on the planet US Vice President Joe Biden basically tells the world how and who created, equipped and financed the latest scourge on the planet, namely IS, ISIS or ISIL (whatever it’s called this week, they can’t seem to decide) and pretty much no one reacts…

Turkish President Erdogan demands an apology as he was angry over comments in which Biden said Erdogan had admitted that Turkey had made mistakes by allowing foreign fighters to cross into Syria, which he of course gets from Biden, whom however does not retract his statements and still no one reacts.

At Harvard, Biden said that “our biggest problem is our allies” in responding to the civil war in Syria.

“The Turks, who are great friends — I have a great relationship with Erdogan, whom I spend a lot of time with — the Saudis, the Emiratis, etc. What were they doing? They were so determined to take down (Syrian President Bashar) Assad and essentially have a proxy Sunni-Shia war,” Biden said.

“What did they do? They poured hundreds of millions of dollars and thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad — except that the people who were being supplied were al-Nusra and al-Qaida and the extremist elements of jihadis coming from other parts of the world.”

Now United Arab Emirates demands an explanation as they too were mentioned and I’m sure they’ll get one.

Now one wonders if anyone will react and start demanding real answers or will the world press and establishment politicos simply allow Biden to back pedal wildly and pretend that none of this was ever said, something that has been told time and time again by both Iraqi’s, Syrians and Kurds alike.

‘Ain’t It a B***h?’

Is it just me or would you too like some real answers?
