‘Terrorist’ is a word that for the majority, conjures up mental images of sadistic evildoers carrying out atrocious acts upon innocents. Terrorists are visualised as violent, ruthless, vindictive, and remorseless.
The dictionary definition of the word terrorism is; “The unlawful use or threatened use of force or violence by a person or an organised group against people or property with the intention of intimidating or coercing societies or governments, often for ideological or political reasons.”
It is a word that strikes fear into the hearts of many, and feelings of fury in others. A word that is used daily by politicians and the media, to further fuel the dread of the populace. A word that has become synonymous with our normal everyday lives.
The latest in a long line of bogeymen to allegedly be terrified of is ISIS or ISIL or just plain old IS, as they’re now known. The party line espoused by the media regarding these CIA/Mossad created ‘Jihadists’ is becoming comical in its content.
If one were to ask the general population to define a terrorist the popular consensus would most probably be; “A brown or dark skinned person, presumably from a Middle Eastern or North African country, and in all probability of Muslim or Islamic allegiance”.
That characterisation is understandable because that is how terrorists are portrayed by the media and politicians. It is how they want us to envisage them. It is what we are supposed to believe and how we are supposed to think. In fact the propaganda has become so ridiculous that anyone who questions the official definition is now themselves classified as an extremist….
In recent years, people like Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, Muammar Gaddafi, and most recently Bashar al-Assad, have all been vilified and pilloried as terrorists and evil dictators by Western governments and media in their endeavour to influence our understanding, and to justify illegal conflict and occupation of their respective countries.
The ‘war on terror’ began officially on September 11th 2001 with the attack on the twin towers and the Pentagon. Following this event new legislation was hurriedly introduced by George Bush, and the Patriot Act was signed into law in October of that year.
Thus began the “war on terror”, and the subsequent (but intended) erosion of our freedom and privacy.
The act, significantly lessened restrictions on law enforcement agencies gathering of intelligence within the United States and worldwide. This vastly increased surveillance on everybody has been publicly disclosed recently by whistleblower Edward Snowden, and it is going to get much worse as evidenced by the plethora of new legislation being introduced by many western governments to further diminish our rights and privacy. The act vastly increased the powers of law enforcement and immigration authorities in detaining and deporting immigrants merely suspected of terrorism-related acts.
But interestingly the act also expanded the definition of terrorism to include ‘domestic terrorism’, thus greatly enlarging the number of activities to which the Patriot Act’s expanded law enforcement powers could be applied, and more importantly, the number of citizens it could be applied to. This new legislation effectively meant that anyone, at home or abroad, could be labelled a terrorist (with little or no evidence) and detained indefinitely at the whim of the President, as evidenced by the illegal detention of suspects without trial in the infamous Guantanamo Bay.
Whilst there is no doubt that the tragedy of 9/11 took place, there is extreme doubt concerning the official version of events. Within hours of the collapse of the twin towers, and with no investigation having taken place whatsoever, a perpetrator was named – Osama bin Laden.
Suddenly a previously unheard of character was public enemy number one. The mainstream media were broadcasting his name and photograph on the front page of every newspaper and on every TV set worldwide, yet no credible evidence was, or has ever been presented, that links Osama bin Laden to the 9/11 attacks. In reality the FBI has subsequently admitted that they have never possessed any evidence whatsoever linking Bin Laden to 9/11.
Almost 3 months after the event, and following demands for evidence, in December of 2001 a poor quality videotape of Osama bin Laden confessing to the 9/11 attacks was released. This video evidence is the only ‘proof’ that the authorities have ever provided to substantiate their accusations.
Below is a series of stills taken from the video.
Now take a look at the composite of various pictures of Osama bin Laden below.
Even the most hardened sceptic would have to agree that Osama ‘E’ stands out like a sore thumb, and this is the man on the confession tape. To anyone with functioning eyesight and basic cognitive ability, it is blatantly obvious that the man from the video is NOT Osama Bin Laden. Now one needs to ask themselves for what purpose would the American government falsify evidence to falsely incriminate a suspect.
Once again, in order to answer the question one only needs to ‘follow the money’. America needed a tolerable excuse to invade Afghanistan, and what better justification could they fabricate than to apprehend the most wanted man on the planet! So henceforth the war on terror was declared and thus began the invasion of the Middle East.
But there was an ulterior motive for this particular incursion. Prior to the invasion in 2001, and due to the Taliban destroying poppy fields throughout Afghanistan, poppy producing was only about 185 tons a year. This was having a profound effect upon the CIA’s black market money supply, so something had to be done to re-establish and protect that income. This year, due primarily to US troops patrolling and protecting the poppy fields, production is expected to surpass the previous 2008 record of 8,000 tons!
Once the USA had control of opium production in Afghanistan (the real reason they invaded) and a puppet regime was installed, a new foe was required to maintain the “war on terror”, and to distract the public from the true agenda. It was time for the pretext of “Weapons of Mass Destruction” to be rolled out, along with their possessor Saddam Hussein. Subsequently yet another supposedly psychopathic public enemy is exhibited to the world by politicians and the media, and as a result, in 2003, yet another sovereign country was invaded in the “war on terror”.
The country’s President, Saddam Hussein, was captured shortly after the invasion, and following a trial by kangaroo court was sentenced to death for the murder of 148 Shiite in the town of Dujail in 1982.
Yet no weapons of mass destruction were initially found in Iraq, and none have subsequently been found. Thus far, and despite assurances to the contrary, occupying troops are still there some twelve years later, and they are still murdering civilians daily. In fact to put into perspective the human cost of this illegal war, in 2010 some 5 years ago, there had been 1,455,590 civilian casualties reported. Then they stopped counting.
Some big oil fields were found though, so bonus!
I for one cannot comprehend the logic used to justify the invasion of a country to find its leader guilty of killing just 148 civilians, whilst in the process the supposed “liberators” (the US and UK) are predominantly responsible for the deaths of over 1.5 million Iraqis. But it’s OK because we’re fighting a war on terror!!! Go figure…
In 2008 G W Bush’s presidential term ended and a new Commander in Chief was inaugurated. Tony Blair deserted his post the previous year and left the bumbling Gordon Brown in charge. Perhaps the war on terror could now be scaled down. Barrack Obama’s campaign dialogue had been all about “change we can believe in”, and he was after all awarded the Nobel Peace Prize (although the reason why eludes me).
Unfortunately that hasn’t been the case, and the Kenyan usurper and his Eton Pedigree Chum(p) Cameron have since intensified the illegal forays and offensives against sovereign nations.
First on their “hit list” was Libya. Once again the rhetoric started vis a vis the alleged evil despot Muammar Gaddafi, and how the poor people of Libya were suffering at his malevolent hands. Once again a foreign nation was invaded and occupied by the USA and its allies, and its leader deposed and brutally slaughtered, this time without the niceties of a trial. And once again the media clamoured to hide the true facts whilst presenting the “official” line on yet another illegal invasion.
The following are some [verifiable] facts about this supposed evil dictator. Facts that you won’t discover in your daily comic newspaper.
- Muammar al-Gaddafi nationalised Libya’s oil reserves and used the oil revenue to build schools, hospitals and repair infrastructure for the Libyan people.
- Proceeds from Libya’s oil revenue was directly deposited into the bank account of every Libyan, every year.
- He raised the life expectancy of Libyans from 44 to 75 years.
- He raised the literacy rate from 20 to 83 percent, and allowed women full access to education and employment.
- All people in Libya had access to doctors, hospitals, clinics and medicines. And it was free!
- Basic food items were subsidised and electricity was made available throughout the country.
- Any Libyan who wanted to become a farmer was given free use of land, a house, farm equipment, livestock and seed.
- Gaddafi started and financed the African Union with the purpose of developing the “United States of Africa.” This was and is something the Western world did not want.
- Gaddafi vowed that his own parents, who lived in a tent in the desert, would not be housed until every Libyan was housed. He kept his word. Under Gaddafi, Libya attained the highest standard of living in Africa.
The above clearly depicts the actions of a crazed despotic dictator hell bent on the suppression and subjugation of his people, doesn’t it!
Again, perhaps the fact that Libya sits upon the largest oil reserves in Africa, may have something to do with the depiction we the public were presented with by the Western war machine and its bought and paid for mainstream media, about its leader.
Next there was Iran, and once more WMD’s or more precisely suspected ‘development’ of nuclear arms, was being advocated as a reason for everyone to fear them and an excuse to invade them. The fanatic in charge of Israel, better known as Binyamin Netanyahu, has been so preposterous in his utterings regarding the nuclear threat from Iran that they are nothing more than laughable absurdities.
Small details, like the fact that North Korea, with an [alleged] lunatic in charge, and Israel with a [confirmed] lunatic in charge, already have intercontinental nuclear weapons, and are more likely to use them, is irrelevant. Or the reality that Iran has not raided another nation in over 200 years, whilst America has attacked over 50 in as few years are of no consequence and blatantly not newsworthy.
Thankfully Vladimir Putin stepped into the ring and brokered a deal between Iran and the west, much to the displeasure of the madman Netanyahu, and for the time being the status quo is being maintained.
Next on the hit list was Bashar al-Assad, the legitimate President of Syria, and once again the rhetoric started from Western governments and their propaganda machine media, vilifying him as an evil tyrant.
This time there were no weapons of mass destruction to use as justification for incursion, no Osama Bin Laden hiding out, so a new excuse was needed to invade. On cue ISIS inexplicably appeared out of nowhere, and were suddenly a major threat to the poor citizens of Syria, so once again the warmongering west had their pretext to invade yet another sovereign nation, all in the name of the “war on terror”.
The Americans were pretending to attack ISIS whilst surreptitiously arming them in a bid to oust Assad. Meanwhile the “boots on the ground” rhetoric was starting, in order to justify a military incursion.
Everything had been going to plan until recently when Russia decided to get involved. In just a couple of weeks the Russian military have done what the US and its allies have failed to do in over two years (because they were only pretending). ISIS is being obliterated and are on the run. Within a few weeks of further Russian bombardment ISIS will be no more. They are already deserting in droves and will soon be completely eradicated.
When one considers the similarities of all of these invasions one could be forgiven for concluding that a pattern is emerging – that a plan is being followed. One would be absolutely correct in reaching that conclusion.
In 2007 General Wesley Clark, a retired 4 star General gave a TV interview. In it he described events that occurred just a few days after 9/11. A transcript of that interview follows:
“About ten days after 9/11, I went through the Pentagon and I saw Secretary Rumsfeld and Deputy Secretary Wolfowitz. I went downstairs just to say hello to some of the people on the Joint Staff who used to work for me, and one of the generals called me in.”
He said, “Sir, you’ve got to come in and talk to me a second.” I said, “Well, you’re too busy.” He said, “No, no.” He says, “We’ve made the decision we’re going to war with Iraq.” This was on or about the 20th of September. I said, “We’re going to war with Iraq? Why?” He said, “I don’t know.” He said, “I guess they don’t know what else to do.” So I said, “Well, did they find some information connecting Saddam to al-Qaeda?” He said, “No, no.” He says, “There’s nothing new that way. They just made the decision to go to war with Iraq.” He said, “I guess it’s like we don’t know what to do about terrorists, but we’ve got a good military and we can take down governments.” And he said, “I guess if the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem has to look like a nail.”
So I came back to see him a few weeks later, and by that time we were bombing in Afghanistan. I said, “Are we still going to war with Iraq?” And he said, “Oh, it’s worse than that.” He reached over on his desk. He picked up a piece of paper. And he said, “I just got this down from upstairs” – meaning the Secretary of Defence’s office – “today.” And he said, “This is a memo that describes how we’re going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran.
OK, it’s taken a little longer than 5 years, and Syria and Iran are proving to be problematic, mainly due to the involvement of Russia and China, but that plan is still going ahead, and as everyone can see, all of these invasions were planned long ago, before 9/11 even. 9/11 was just the catalyst required to implement the plan.
Nobody has benefitted more from terrorism than the US, the UK, and Israel. They use terrorism as an excuse to change the law, giving more power to the authorities and withdrawing freedoms and privacy from the people. They use terrorism as an excuse to attack and conquer foreign nations. They exploit your fear of terrorism to win support for their actions.
Contemplate that since the false flag of 9/11, upwards of 2 million people have been slaughtered in their native countries in the Middle East as a result of the west’s incursions and hostility. Despite what the prestitutes of mainstream media would have us all believe, these people were not terrorists or extremists, they were just everyday normal folk trying to live an everyday normal life, just like you or I. They were slaughtered for the inexcusable crime of being in the wrong place at the wrong time….
Now ponder who the real terrorists are……
