ONLY “THE BRAINWASHED” AND FOOLS WHO STILL BELIEVE 9/11 ATTACKS DONE BY MUSLIM TERRORISTS
by Syarif Hidayat
“In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt.
MIHOP (“Make it happen on purpose”) – that key individuals within the government planned the attacks and collaborated with, or framed, Al-Qaeda in carrying them out. There is a range of opinions about how this might have been achieved.
Operation Northwoods as a precursor of the 9/11 attacks
Conspiracy theorists often point to Operation Northwoods as a precursor of the 9/11 attacks, which they theorize were carried out by the U.S. government as a false flag operation, which was then blamed on Islamic extremists. Operation Northwoods was a plan presented by the United States Joint Chiefs of Staff in 1962. The plan called for covert operatives to commit genuine acts of terrorism in U.S. cities, and to blame and subsequently invade Cuba for it.
Time magazine contrasted events which inspired past conspiracy theories with those that inspire 9/11 conspiracy theories such as the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Time called the public assassination of Kennedy a “private, intimate affair” when compared with the attack on the World Trade Center, which was witnessed by millions of people and documented by hundreds of videographers; and stated, “there is no event so plain and clear that a determined human being can’t find ambiguity in it.”
Ex-CIA Agent: America creates its own enemies!
Americans are in the crosshairs of terrorists worldwide purely due to Washington’s policy in the Muslim world, not because there is an Islamic enemy whose only aim is to kill Americans for their freedoms and lifestyle, insists a former CIA officer.
Historian Michael Scheuer, an author of “Through our enemies’ eyes”, who worked for the agency for over 20 years till 2004 and at one time was the chief of the CIA’s ‘Bin Laden unit’, says “America’s greatest enemy — radical Islam — never existed: neither when Bin Laden was alive, nor now.”
ISLAM IS AGAINST TERRORISM!
“By God (Allah SWT), he is not a true believer, from whose mischief his neighbors do not feel secure.” – Prophet Mohammed PBUH – (Hadith written by Bukhari and Muslim)
ISLAM IS AGAINST KILLING – In Islam, the right to life is an absolute value!
In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. “Because of that We ordained for the Children of Israel that if anyone killed a person not in retaliation (in legal punishment) of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land – it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind. And indeed, there came to them Our Messengers with clear proofs, evidence, and signs, even then after that many of them continued to exceed the limits (e.g. by doing oppression unjustly and exceeding beyond the limits set by Allâh by committing the major sins) in the land!” – Al Qur’an, Surah Al-Maidah, Verse 32.
Only “the brainwashed” and fools who still believe that the 9/11 hijacking of three planes using box cutters, the attacks on World Trade Center (WTC) and Pentagon were planned and executed by Osama bin Laden’s Al Qaeda Muslim terrorists.
Former CIA official Milt Bearden says that this (the WTC attack) was a sophisticated job that couldn’t have been done by Osama bin Laden, he says we should look elsewhere. Even the FBI’s own most wanted website doesn’t state bin Laden was involved in 9/11. When the FBI was asked why 9/11 isn’t listed under Bin Laden’s crimes, the FBI responded by saying “There’s simply no evidence linking Bin Laden to 9/11”.
Bearden talks about bin Ladens non-existent involvement in 911 and how the CIA trained Osama bin Laden. Here are also some quotes to confirm that claim:
“We’ve never made the case, or argued the case that somehow Osama bin Laden was directly involved in 9/11. That evidence has never been forthcoming.” – Dick Cheney, “Interview of the Vice President by Tony Snow”, March 29, 2006.
Tony Snow: “I want to be clear because I’ve heard you say this, and I’ve heard the President say it, but I want you to say it for my listeners, which is that the White House has never argued that Saddam was directly involved in September 11th, correct?”
Dick Cheney: “That’s correct. “We had one report early on from another intelligence service that suggested that the lead hijacker, Mohamed Atta, had met with Iraqi intelligence officials in Prague, Czechoslovakia. And that reporting waxed and waned where the degree of confidence in it, and so forth, has been pretty well knocked down now at this stage, that that meeting ever took place. So we’ve never made the case, or argued the case that somehow Osama bin Laden was directly involved in 9/11. That evidence has never been forthcoming.” —WhiteHouse.gov, The Tony Snow Show, “Interview of the Vice President by Tony Snow”, March 29, 2006
“9/11 is not mentioned on Osama bin Laden’s Most Wanted page. He has not been formally indicted and charged in connection with 9/11 because the FBI has no hard evidence connected Bin Laden to 9/11.” – FBI agent Rex Tomb, June 6, 2006.
Osama Bin Laden, the CIA Agent?
Ironically, Al Qaeda –the “outside enemy of America” as well as the alleged architect of the 9/11 attacks– is a creation of the CIA.
What are the historical origins of Al Qaeda?
Who is Osama bin Laden?
The alleged mastermind behind the 9/11 terrorists attacks, Saudi-born Osama bin Laden, was recruited during the Soviet-Afghan war, “ironically under the auspices of the CIA, to fight Soviet invaders”. The CIA’s role in laying the foundations of Al Qaeda is confirmed in an 1998 interview with Zbigniew Brzezinski, who at the time was National Security Adviser to President Jimmy Carter: Brzezinski: According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahideen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan, [on] 24 December 1979.
But the reality, secretly guarded until now, is completely otherwise. Indeed, it was July 3, 1979, that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul. Most of the world believes Bin Laden was a CIA agent. He was first funded in the 80s by the CIA. There is also no record of him using the term, ‘Al Qaeda’, which means ‘the toilet’ until after 9-11. Tim Osman (Ossman) has recently become better known as Osama Bin Laden. “Tim Osman” was the name assigned to him by the CIA for his tour of the U.S. and U.S. military bases, in search of political support and armaments. There is some evidence that Tim Osman … visited the White House. There is certainty that Tim Osman toured some U.S. military bases, even receiving special demonstrations of the latest equipment.
What ever the truth is about the man killed in Pakistan and dumped ‘Islamically’, but in secret, into the Arabian Sea yesterday, whether that man was Osama Bin Laden or not, in his real life, Osama Bin Laden was a hireling of the CIA from start to finish, along with his cohorts of the so-called ‘Al-Qaeda’. Al-Qaeda simply means ‘base’ and is the CIA’s own data base of its operatives originally trained and deployed against the Soviets who invaded Afghanistan in 1979. Now they have apparently been deployed against the US and its allies in the fake war on terror.
Whether Osama is alive or dead, or whether he died yesterday or in 2001, or 2009, he lived and died as a CIA agent in the employ of the illuminati globalists. He played his role as he was trained to do. The following article will help to make the right connections so you won’t be fooled like the fools who believe everything they are told by their elite handlers and the ‘presstitutes’ of the main-stream-media.
Al-Qaeda is complete fabrication
In the BBC’s series of documentary films called “The Power of Nightmares“, top ranking CIA operatives openly admit, Al-Qaeda is a total and complete fabrication, never having existed at any time. The Power of Nightmares is a BBC series of documentary films, written and produced by Adam Curtis, which makes controversial claims about the neo-conservatives and the radical Islamists.
The Bush administration needed a reason that complied with the Laws so they could go after “the bad guy of their choice” namely laws that had been set in place to protect us from mobs and “criminal organizations” such as the Mafia. They paid Jamal al Fadl, hundreds of thousands of dollars to back the U.S. Government’s story of Al-Qaeda, a “group” or criminal organization they could “legally” go after.
According to Wikipedia, Jamal Ahmed Mohamed al-Fadl (Arabic: جمال أحمد محمّد الفضل, Jamāl Aḥmad Muḥammad al-Faḍl) (born 1963-) is a Sudanese militant and former associate of Osama bin Laden in the early 1990s. Al-Fadl was recruited for the Afghan war through the Farouq mosque in Brooklyn. In 1988, he joined al Qaeda and took an oath of fealty to Bin Laden. After a dispute with Bin Laden, al-Fadl defected and became an informant to the United States government on al Qaeda activities.
Al-Fadl was recruited to the Afghan mujahideen “through the Farouq mosque in Brooklyn” (presumably when he was in the U.S. in the mid 1980s), and he became a “senior employee” of al-Qaeda. He attended two meetings from August 11–20 in 1988, along with Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri, Mohammed Atef, Mamdouh Mahmud Salim, Wael Hamza Julaidan, and Mohammed Loay Bayazid and eight others, to discuss the founding of “al-Qaeda”. In Khartoum, he travelled to Hilat Koko with Mamdouh Mahmud Salim in late 1993 or early 1994, and met with Amin Abdel Marouf to discuss chemical weapons.
Fadl became a business agent for al Qaeda but resented receiving a salary of only $500 a month while some of the Egyptians in al Qaeda were given $1,200 a month. Osama bin Laden discovered that Fadl had skimmed about $110,000 and asked for restitution. Fadl then defected and became a star informant for the United States. After embezzling $110,000 from the organization, al-Fadl “defected”.
He contacted the CIA via the United States’s Eritrean embassy and, receiving encouragement from FBI special agents Jack Cloonan and Dan Coleman (who were “seconded” to the CIA‘s Bin Laden unit), he returned (after staying in Germany for a while) to the United States, in spring 1996.For the next three years Cloonan and his colleagues oversaw al-Fadl in a safehouse. From December 1996 Al-Fadl began to provide “a major breakthrough of intelligence on the creation, character, direction, and intentions of al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden.”
Robin Cook: Al-Qaeda – The Name of A CIA Database
In August 2007, late British Foreign Secretary, Robin Cook, said that “Al-Qaeda” was the name of a CIA detabase of Afghan Mujahideen and their support groups. Afraid of being labeled as ‘an anti-Semite’ by the British Jewish lobby groups, he dropped the name of Israeli Mossad as CIA’s partner in crime.
“The truth is there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al-Qaeda. And any informed intelligence officer knows this. But, there is propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an identified entity representing the ‘devil’ only in order to drive TV watchers to accept a unified international leadership for a war against terrorism. The country behind this propaganda is the US (aka Israel),” he said.
Wayne Madsen, a Washington-based investigating journalist, columnist and author, in a recent article, titled, Formation of Al-Qaeda: US-Israel Collaboration has confirmed the not so secret that Al-Qaeda was created by the CIA-Mossad & Associates to destroy every possible threat to the Zionist entity. Press clips gathered by the CIA and discovered in the National Archives’ stored CIA files point to an agency keenly interested in any leaks about the highly-classified CIA-Mossad program to establish Osama Bin Laden and the most radical elements of the Afghan Mujahidin as the primary leaders of the anti-Soviet rebels in the 1980s.
WMR has pored through the CIA files and a complicated picture emerges of America’s and Israel’s top intelligence agencies, in cahoots with Saudi Arabia, establishing financial links and carve out intelligence programs to provide manpower and financial support to Bin Laden and his allies in Afghanistan. It was these very elements that later created the so-called “Al Qaeda,” which the late British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook described as nothing more than a “database” of CIA front organizations, financial supporters, and field operatives. However, one component omitted by Cook in the Al Qaeda construct is the Israeli participation.
Legal ‘Creation’ of Al-Qaeda
In January 2001 a trial began in New York of four men accused of the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings in East Africa . The U.S also wanted to prosecute Osama bin Laden in his absence under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). To be able to do this under American law, the prosecutors needed evidence of a criminal organisation, which would then allow them to prosecute the leader, even if he could not be linked directly to the crime. Jamal al-Fadl was taken on as a key prosecution witness, who along with a number of other sources claimed that Osama bin Laden was the leader of a large international terrorist organisation which was called “al-Qaeda”
However, there is no evidence that bin Laden used the term “al-Qaeda” to refer to the name of this ‘group’ until after the September 11 attacks when he realised that was the term the Americans had given it. Instead of a connected organisation with bin Laden at the head, there was infact a loose association of Islamist militants who planned their own operations and looked to bin Laden for funding and assistance. Jamal al-Fadl was on the run from bin Laden, having stolen money from him. In return for his testimony, the U.S gave him witness protection in America and hundereds of thousands of dollars. Many lawyers at the trial believed al-Fadl exaggerated and lied to give the Americans a picture of a terrorist organisation they needed to prosecute bin Laden.
Prosecutors for the 1998 U.S. embassy bombings believed bin Laden organised them and wanted to convict him in absentia by showing that he headed a criminal organisation. Jamal al-Fadl, a former associate of bin Laden, described such an organisation to them, which the investigators called al-Qaeda. While bin Laden apparently aided the attacks he had no organisation through which he could command and control them; al-Fadl seems to have told investigators what they wanted to hear in return for money and witness protection.
The September 11 attacks were the brainchild of Islamist militant Khalid Sheik Mohammed who had come to bin Laden for funding and help in finding volunteers. But he did not take orders from him. The name “al-Qaeda” was first coined by the U.S. federal government based on the name of a computer file of bin Laden’s that listed the names of contacts he had made in Afghanistan, which talks about the organisation as the al-Qaeda-al-Jihad (“the base of the jihad”). In neither Osama bin Laden’s declaration of war, or the fatwa he issued in 1998, does he mention an organisation called “al-Qaeda.”
Three big questions!
On Sunday, May 1, 2011, President Barack Obama announced that Osama bin Laden was killed. In a propaganda piece reeking of US Triumphalism, two alleged journalists, Adam Goldman and Chris Brummitt, of the Associated Press or, rather, of the White House Ministry of Truth, write, or copy off a White House or CIA press release that “Osama bin Laden, the terror mastermind killed by Navy SEALs in an intense firefight, was hunted down based on information first gleaned years ago (emphasis added) from detainees at secret CIA prison sites in Eastern Europe, officials disclosed.”
Paul Craig Roberts, a former Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury and former associate editor of the Wall Street Journal, asks these questions:
How many Americans will notice that the first paragraph of the “report” justifies CIA prisons and torture? Without secret prisons and torture “the terror mastermind” would still be running free, despite having died from renal failure in 2001.
How many Americans will have the wits to wonder why the “terror mastermind” – who defeated not merely the CIA and the FBI, but all 16 US intelligence agencies along with Israel’s Mossad and the intelligence services of NATO, who defeated NORAD, the National Security Council, the Pentagon and Joint Chiefs of Staff, the US Air Force, and Air Traffic Control, who caused security procedures to fail four times in US airports in one hour on the same day, who caused the state-of-the-art Pentagon air defenses to fail, and who managed to fly three airliners into three buildings with pilots who did not know how to fly – has not pulled off any other attack in almost ten years?
Do Americans really believe that a government’s security system that can so totally fail when confronted with a few Saudi Arabians with box cutters can renew itself to perfection overnight?
How many Americans will notice the resurrection of the long missing bin Laden as “terror mastermind” after his displacement by Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the Guantanamo prisoner who confessed to being the “mastermind of 9/11” after being water-boarded 183 times?
Some answers from the military facts
Another common claim is that the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) issued a stand down order or deliberately scrambled fighters late to allow the hijacked airplanes to reach their targets without interference. According to this theory, NORAD had the capability of locating and intercepting planes on 9/11, and its failure to do so indicates a government conspiracy to allow the attacks to occur.The Web site emperors-clothes.com argues that the U.S. military failed to do their job. StandDown.net’s Mark R. Elsis says “There is only one explanation for this…. Our Air Force was ordered to Stand Down on 9/11.”
In September 2001, NORAD generals said they learned of the hijackings in time to scramble fighter jets. Later, the U.S. government released tapes claiming to show the Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) did not tell the military about the hijackings until three of the four planes had crashed, a fact that would indicate that the FAA repeatedly lied to other U.S. government agencies.
Phil Molé of Skeptic magazine has explained that it is neither quick nor easy to locate and intercept a plane behaving erratically, and that the hijackers turned off or disabled the onboard radar transponders. Without these transponder signals to identify the airplanes, the hijacked airplanes would have been only blips among 4,500 other blips on NORAD’S radar screens, making them very difficult to track.
According to Popular Mechanics, only 14 fighter jets were on alert in the contiguous 48 states on 9/11. There was no automated method for the civilian air traffic controllers to alert NORAD. A passenger airline hadn’t been hijacked in the US since 1979. “They had to pick up the phone and literally dial us,” says Maj. Douglas Martin, public affairs officer for NORAD. According to Popular Mechanics, only one civilian plane was intercepted in the decade prior to 9/11, which took 1 hour and 22 minutes.
Rules in effect at that time, and on 9/11, barred supersonic flight on intercepts. Before 9/11, all other NORAD interceptions were limited to offshore Air Defense Identification Zones (ADIZ). “Until 9/11 there was no domestic ADIZ,” says FAA spokesman Bill Schumann. After 9/11, the FAA and NORAD increased cooperation. They set up hotlines between command centers while NORAD increased its fighter coverage and installed radar to watch airspace over the continent.
NeoCons know how to scare the shit out of America
How to scare the shit out of America and make them do anything: The Rise of Neoconservatism to power in America is documented in the BBC’s series “The Power of Nightmares”. All the NeoCon myths exposed and the obvious exploitation of American values in to twisted patriotism. Great information on the Fathers and minions of Neoconservatism, Strauss, Wolfowitz and Kristol. Basing their entire theory on failing liberalism and personal independence being the cause for the people’s negative reaction to Government policies. Deducing that the only way to give America it’s “True” course was to “Invent” good and evil so the country would unite in a common cause – a fabricated War against evil.
Who’s neo-con (neoconservative) movement that now heavily influences the US foreign policy? Neoconservatism is better described in general as a complex interlocking professional and family network centered around Jewish publicists and organizers flexibly deployed to recruit the sympathies of both Jews and non-Jews in harnessing the wealth and power of the United States in the service of Israel.
Following the September 11 attacks, the neo-conservatives were able to convince George W. Bush to begin a War on Terror and to paint al-Qaeda as an international network of terrorists. The war in Afghanistan removed bin Laden’s main source of recruits, but the U.S. military and the Northern Alliance also captured and killed many people in the Taleban camps that had nothing to do with him. The story circulated that bin Laden and the core of al-Qaeda had retreated to an underground complex in Tora Bora, but an exhaustive search revealed no sign of this. Al-Qaeda could not be found because it never really existed; Islamist terrorists are connected only by ideology and not by an organisation that can be cut off at its root.
The arrests of various groups of suspected terrorists in the U.S. following the September 11 attacks failed to find any substantive evidence, but did show a lot of imagination of the part of investigators. Similarly, in the U.K., arrests under new terrorism laws have resulted in only 3 convictions of Islamists, all for fundraising. Much of the media coverage of potential terrorist attacks is also highly speculative and sensational.
For instance, according to the BBC films, a terrorist attack using a radiological weapon, referred to by the media as a dirty bomb, wouldn’t kill many people from fallout because the radioactive material would be spread thinly by any explosion. However, the neo-conservatives had found they could use the threat of Islamist terrorism, and the claimed possibility of sponsorship by Iraq, as an enemy against which to unite the U.S., and other politicians such as Tony Blair claimed an important role in protecting their countries from attack. Politicians and counter-terrorist agents have decided that they must be proactive in imagining the worst possible attacks and in stopping those who seem likely to carry out attacks.
Motives: Pax Americana AND OIL
In 2006, members of the group Scholars for 9/11 Truth argued that a group of US neo-conservatives called the Project for a New American Century (PNAC), which included Paul Wolfowitz, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld, set on US world dominance and orchestrated the 9/11 attacks as an excuse to hit Iraq, Afghanistan and later Iran. In September 2000 the PNAC released a strategic treatise entitled Rebuilding America’s Defences. David Ray Griffin in his 2004 book The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and 9/11 argued that the treatise may have been the blueprint for 9/11 attacks. Specifically the language in the paper that read “the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor” was describing an alleged motive.
The Defense Planning Guidance of 1992, was drafted by Paul Wolfowitz on behalf of then Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney. This was described as “a blueprint for permanent American global hegemony” by Andrew J. Bacevich in his book American Empire: The Realities and Consequences of U.S. Diplomacy.
Matt Taibbi argued in his book The Great Derangement that conspiracy theorists have taken what is written in the paper “completely out of context”, and that the “transformation” referenced in the paper is explicitly stated to be a decades-long process to turn the Cold War-era military into a “new, modern military” which could deal with more localized conflicts. He stated that, for this to be evidence of motive, either those responsible would have decided to openly state their objectives, or would have read the paper in 2000 and quickly laid the groundwork for the 9/11 attacks using it as inspiration.
Many influential people including scholars and politicians around the world have questioned whether the Oil Factor and 9/11 provided the United States and the United Kingdom with a reason to launch a war they had wanted for some time, and suggest that this gives them a strong motive for either carrying out the attacks, or allowing them to take place. For instance, Andreas von Bülow, a former research minister in the German government, has argued that 9/11 was staged to justify the subsequent wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Former Malaysian premiere Mahathir Mohamad was quoted as saying that there was “strong evidence” that the attacks were faked so the United States could go to war against Muslims.
Wars for Oil
The United States of America inherited Britain’s imperialist ambitions. Starting from a group of colonies in “New England” it expanded by stealing land on which Native Americans had lived for tens of thousands of years (killing millions of them in the process). It also stole half of Mexico. In 1898 the U.S. expanded its imperialist program overseas when it annexed the Philippines to benefit American companies wanting to exploit the land and the people. Since then it has maintained the same predatory attitude to the rest of the world. It will not stop until it has gained control of the entire planet or it has been destroyed (or destroys itself).
Skipping over a long history of U.S. imperialist aggression against other countries, we may note that the U.S. did not go to war in the Persian Gulf in 1991 to liberate Kuwait from Iraqi aggression (to which its ambassador to Iraq, April Glaspie, had given a green light) but rather to move military forces into the area and to establish military bases so as to exercise greater control over the area’s oil. Talk of removing “that evil dictator Saddam Hussein” is simple obfuscation. Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld are lying to the American people when they pretend to be outraged at the actions of the Iraqi dictator (whom the U.S. supported right up until 1991, including Saddam’s use of chemical weapons against the Kurds). In fact it is control of Middle Eastern oil which is the primary motivation for U.S. military plans for that area.
Even before assuming the office of President it was announced by George W. Bush that war was planned. “And so one of Secretary [of Defense] Rumsfeld’s first tasks will be … to develop a strategy necessary to have a force equipped for warfare of the 21st century.” – George W. Bush, Washington DC, December 28, 2000
And, conveniently enough, the attacks of September 11th provided just the excuse needed for a yet greater military build up (and justification for Bush’s $344 billion war budget) — in particular the already-planned development of “defensive” missiles, allegedly to foil attacks by “international terrorists” (even though they neither possess nor need intercontinental nuclear-tipped ballistic missiles), but which might also prove quite useful in defending the U.S. from retaliation by any nation which it chooses to attack.
“WE THE PEOPLES OF THE UNITED NATIONS DETERMINED to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war, which twice in our lifetime has brought untold sorrow to mankind” … – Preamble to the Charter of the United Nations
As a member of the United Nations the U.S. has committed itself to the principles expressed in the Charter. Since 1980, however, the U.S. has consistently flouted these principles, abrogating treaties and attacking other nations without international consent.
Indeed, the U.S. government, in violation of the United Nations charter and international law, has now given itself permission — in the form of a congressional resolution — to attack whoever it wants to, to engage openly in political assassinations in the manner of Israel, and generally to wage war upon whoever it chooses to label as its enemy.
Actually Congress excused itself from any direct responsibility for this aggression since it resolved “That the president is authorized to use all necessary and appropriate force against those nations, organizations, or persons he determines [emphasis added] planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on Sept. 11, 2001, or harbored such organizations or persons …” So if George W. Bush thinks (to the extent that he is able to think) that, say, Iran “harbors terrorists” then Congress has said it’s OK by them for George to nuke Teheran.
The number of innocent civilians who have died as a result of U.S. military action in Afghanistan and Iraq is far greater than the number of those who died in the WTC attack. But, of course, since those killed by American firepower were not Americans, British or Australians, this is of no concern, except insofar as it might result in international condemnation, making it difficult to maintain the “international coalition” (the coalition of the willingly bribed) that the U.S. seeks to provide a fig-leaf for its planned military aggression against those countries that stand in the way of its global domination. And, by the way, such aggression and the collateral regional wars that it will cause in various parts of Asia will, of course, be good for U.S. arms manufacturers, and other American companies with friends in the U.S. government, which profit from war.
“War on Terrorism” and the “real bush crusade FOR OIL”
Not only did Bush announce a “War on Terrorism”, he even spoke stupidly of a “crusade”, invoking memories of the medieval Christian crusades against Islam to recover “the Holy Land” (conveniently forgetting that the Crusaders held Palestine for a comparatively brief period before they were defeated by Muslim forces under Saladin on July 4th, 1187, and subsequently driven into the sea). These days, for some people, oil is the holy grail, and recovery of the Holy Land means gaining control of the oil fields, the primary reason why America has given itself permission to invade whatever countries it chooses to.
And it’s not just Middle Eastern oil — there are huge oil deposits in the Caspian Basin (larger than in Saudia Arabia). In 1998 John J. Maresca, vice-president of Unocal, testified before the House Subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific that a pipeline across Afghanistan was crucial to transport Caspian Basin oil to the Indian Ocean. Bush and the American oil companies dearly wanted to lay such a pipeline across Afghanistan but they could not do so while the Taleban ruled Afghanistan because the Taleban demanded too large a per centage as their cut for allowing the pipeline project to proceed. Hence, the oil monopoly need[ed] to overthrow the Kabul government, install their own government, and proceed with the pipeline project. — Sherman H. Skolnick, The Overthrow of the American Republic, Part 2
In fact from February to August 2001 the Bush administration conducted detailed negotiations with the Taliban to lay this hoped-for pipeline across Afghanistan and Pakistan so as to profit from lucrative sales to oil-hungry Asian countries. In August the negotiations broke down, after a U.S. negotiator threatened military action against the Taliban, saying, accept our offer of a carpet of gold or you will get a carpet of bombs (see Bin Laden: The Forbidden Truth). One month later the rationale for the carpet-bombing was provided by the destruction of the WTC.
And, sure enough, in September 2002 plans for this pipeline were being implemented.
Oil ministers from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Turkmenistan [were] to meet in the Afghan capital Kabul Monday [2002-09-16] to review progress on the 1,500-kilometer, $2billion Afghan-Pakistan-Turkmenistan gas pipeline, officials said. … The pipeline is to carry gas from Turkmenistan’s Dauletabad-Donmez field to Afghanistan and Multan, Pakistan. It is supported by the United States. — Islamic Republic News Agency
And in December 2002 the deal was signed.
Turkmen President Sapamurat Niyazov, Pakistani Prime Minister Zafarullah Jamali and Afghan President Hamid Karzai finalised a vital gas pipeline agreement here on Thursday [2002-12-26]. The leaders of the three countries would sign the framework agreement to build the 1,500-kilometre Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan (TAP) gas pipeline project from Turkmenistan’s Dauletabad fields across Afghanistan to Pakistan on Friday. — HiPakistan.com
As is obvious, the modern West (and those countries which have followed its lead) have been built on a ruthless exploitation of the Earth’s resources, particularly oil. For these countries oil is an addiction, and there is no political will to break the habit. The hyperactivity of the global economy during the last century is like the hyperactivity of a speed freak, and in the end both will crash. If the dominance of the oil industry over government is not broken then in the near future of the human race global famine and disease are a certainty (and don’t think Americans, Europeans or Australians will be spared).
The System may or may not understand that it’s only buying time. And that time is an artificial resource to begin with, of no value to anyone other than the System, which must sooner or later crash to its death, when its addiction to energy has become more than the rest of the World can supply, dragging with it innocent souls all along the chain of life. — Thomas Pynchon, Gravity’s Rainbow. And, by the way, there’s something in Central Asia that’s a lot more profitable than oil. This region has the main transit routes for Afghani heroin being smuggled to Western countries. When one recalls that American military cargo planes were returning from Central America in the 1980s loaded with cocaine for distribution in the U.S. by the CIA and the Mafia one has to wonder what might be in American military cargo planes currently flying out of recently-established U.S. bases and airports in Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan.
“What goes around, comes around!”
A German proverb says: “Lügen haben kurze Beine.” – Translation: “Lies have short legs.” – Equivalent: “Lies don’t travel far.” – Meaning: “All lies would come back to haunt you (The Liars)!”
The old saying says: One big lie should be covered by another big lie and this immoral practice would continue to get bigger and bigger until these lies are so big that they could not be covered effectively by the liars. By this time the TRUTH would come out!(HSH)
