In a special report, RT America examines the origins, power and expansion of the terrorist group known as the Islamic State (IS, formerly known as ISIS). RT’s Ben Swann delves into the roots of the organization while Ameera David explains how the group amasses the millions of dollars it requires to operate. Finally, Manuel Rapalo explores how the Iraqi army fell apart despite benefiting from billions of dollars of US money – and military hardware – meant to ensure security.
As the false flag terror sponsor Saudi Arabia threatens the West with the claim that “ISIS Will Be Here Soon” and warns of an “imminent threat” from which the U.S. and Europe “can’t hide”, Gerald Celente of the Trends Journal joins us to dissect the despicable, sinister plans of the New World Order and the madness of the ‘Grand Chessboard’. The pieces are all lining up to take the world directly in to World War III if the maniacs in power are not stopped.

Deir ez-Zor, Syria’s sixth-largest city, is also the country’s oil capital. For four decades, the al-Assad regime (first run by Hafez, and now by his son Bashar) struck deals with Western oil companies like Shell and Total that resulted in the extraction of as much as 27,000 barrels of black gold from the sand every day. A pittance compared with other Middle Eastern countries’ production, but it made Syria a bona fide oil-exporting nation. At least this was the case until international sanctions were imposed in 2011 in response to the regime’s crackdown on the antigovernment protests, which quickly morphed into a civil war.
