Warmongering 101

Warmongering 101

“In light of the events of September 11, there is another scenario worth considering. Perhaps the missile strikes against Afghanistan and the Sudan were independent of Clinton’s personal problems. Instead perhaps the embassy bombings and the missile strikes (along with the Oklahoma City bombing and the events of September 11) were scheduled events on U.S. policy makers timetable for: (1) justifying a full scale war against Afghanistan; (2) achieving a once and for all guarantee of energy security by taking command of Afghanistan for the purpose of building the pipelines and (3) eradicating the remaining American civil liberties. If this is the case it begs the question, Who is Osama bin-Laden and what is his role in this scenario? In considering this question, let’s make note of that which Afghanistan and the Sudan have in common. First, they are both countries ruled by Muslims. Secondly, they are both valuable to the big oil companies. (While Afghanistan is valued as a transit route for Caspian Sea oil and natural gas, the Sudan has oil deposits of its own.) And finally, they both have provided safe have for Osama bin-Laden, the international poster boy for anti-American, anti-Western terrorism. In other words, wherever Osama in-Laden goes the U.S. is justified n following with bobs and missiles. And where he goes just happens to be of great value to the big oil command structure.” Mamadou Chinyelu Motive Means and Opportunity Probable Cause for Indicting George W. Bush his Sponsors and Aides for the Attack of September 11, 2001 page 43-44

The fifth anniversary of 9-11 has come and gone and the warmongers are attempting to make as much hay with it as possible to keep the masses focused on the preposterous notion a religious psychopath (much like George W Bu$h) suffering from kidney failure living in a cave in Afghanistan plotted planned and executed the most monumental security failure in AmeriKKKan history. Immediately following 9-11 the U.S. government and its media mind control apparatus had most of the public fooled with their cockeyed incredible (meaning not believable) fairy tale about radical jihadists circumventing the most costly and sophisticated military, intelligence and defense system in the world and pulling off a four pronged simultaneous attack using highjacked commercial air liners For a while it worked. Bu$h and Co should have quit while they were ahead. Not satisfied to launch a war in Afghanistan in search of “public enemy number one” the Bu$hites launched an ill conceived invasion and occupation of Iraq a nation that posed no threat to neither the U.S. nor any other nation Now AmeriKKKa is bogged down in a no win situation having created enemies all around the world with their deceit and hubris. Their arrogance will be their undoing.
With the upcoming mid-term elections the Bu$hites, the real perpetrators of 9-11 are attempting to resuscitate their moribund approval ratings and credibility with more fearmongering, fake nationalism, cardboard jingoism and a massive propaganda push to make people think lies are truth, invasion is liberation, torture is security and preemptive aggression is sound moral foreign policy. But their program is running out of steam. Thanks to the 9-11 Truth Movement their lies, fabrications and criminal actions are starting to unravel. Recent polls indicate that over one third of the AmeriKKKan public believes the U.S. government was complicit in 9-11 “More than a third of the American public suspects that federal officials assisted in the 9/11 terrorist attacks or took no action to stop them so the United States could go to war in the Middle East, according to a new Scripps Howard/Ohio University poll. The national survey of 1,010 adults also found that anger against the federal government is at record levels, with 54 percent saying they ‘personally are more angry’ at the government than they used to be. Widespread resentment and alienation toward the national government appears to be fueling a growing acceptance of conspiracy theories about the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Suspicions that the 9/11 attacks were ‘an inside job’ - the common phrase used by conspiracy theorists on the Internet - quickly have become nearly as popular as decades-old conspiracy theories that the federal government was responsible for President John F. Kennedy's assassination. Seventy percent of people who give credence to these theories also say they've become angrier with the federal government than they used to be. While the lies about Iraq WMD have been thoroughly debunked, the original sin of 9-11 still gets retold and re-enforced daily despite te fact over fifty per cent of the AmeriKKKan public now believes the U.S. government was implicated in the 9-11 attack or at the very least allowed it to happen.” Distrust of government, belief in 9/11 conspiracy growing August 3, 2006 6:12 AM By THOMAS HARGROVE and GUIDO H. STEMPEL III
The reason it took so long for most people to figure things out for themselves is because the U.S. propaganda apparatus works on behalf of the class interests of the ruling elites and the ruling elites were the ones behind 9-11 Now if folks would only connect the dots and realize the invasion of Afghanistan had nothing to do with 9-11 or Osama bin-Laden. Dig this, the FBI Website doesn’t even mention Osma bin-Laden as the perpetrator of 9-11 “On June 5, 2006, the Muckraker Report contacted the FBI Headquarters, (202) 324-3000, to learn why Bin Laden’s Most Wanted poster did not indicate that Usama was also wanted in connection with 9/11. The Muckraker Report spoke with Rex Tomb, Chief of Investigative Publicity for the FBI. When asked why there is no mention of 9/11 on Bin Laden’s Most Wanted web page, Tomb said, ‘The reason why 9/11 is not mentioned on Usama Bin Laden’s Most Wanted page is because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11.’ Surprised by the ease in which this FBI spokesman made such an astonishing statement, I asked, ‘How this was possible?’ Tomb continued, ‘Bin Laden has not been formally charged in connection to 9/11.’ I asked, ‘How does that work?’ Tomb continued, ‘The FBI gathers evidence. Once evidence is gathered, it is turned over to the Department of Justice. The Department of Justice than decides whether it has enough evidence to present to a federal grand jury. In the case of the 1998 United States Embassies being bombed, Bin Laden has been formally indicted and charged by a grand jury. He has not been formally indicted and charged in connection with 9/11 because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11.’”
The real deal is the invasion of Afghanistan was all about control of the land needed for pipelines designed to transport Caspian Sea oil and natural gas to the Indian Ocean so it could then be shipped to markets around the world. “Even before ‘liberating’ Afghanistan, the United States had long supported the idea of a trans-Afghan oil/gas pipeline as a win-win scenario under which Afghans would gain jobs and revenues and American industry would enjoy the benefits of an additional source of fuel from a friendly ally. Kazakhstan had struck oil years before in its section of the Caspian Sea, discovering enough reserves to far surpass Saudi Arabia’s, but the shortest route for a pipeline to the Indian Ocean would have had to pass through ‘Axis of Evil’ member Iran, an alleged backer of state terrorism. Turkmenistan possesses less oil than Kazakhstan, but enormous amounts of natural gas -- by some estimates, the world’s second-largest reserves. Connecting those Turkmen gas fields to an existing Soviet-era Russian network was considered unreliable -- the Russians had the unfortunate habit of diverting the oil without paying for it during the immediate post-independence period of the early ’90s -- and a proposed route across China was considered too long and too expensive. Plans for a pipeline dated back to the mid-’90s, even before the Taliban seized power in 1996. After the Taliban consolidated control over more than 90 percent of the country, Western oil companies restarted negotiations with renewed vigor; the hardline Islamist regime crushed the warlordism that threatened the safety of a pipeline. California-based Unocal Corporation had dropped previous plans for an Afghan pipeline deal in 1998, after it had become evident that the Taliban leadership were too unstable and unreasonable to make the idea feasible. But in the latter days of the Afghan war, although Unocal had officially lost its appetite for Caspian oil and moved on to focus on business in other parts of the world, reviving the idea made sense. Seizing the moment in anticipation of a new stable, safe and unified Afghanistan, Karzai signed a memorandum of understanding with its neighbors Turkmenistan and Pakistan in order to begin the process of calling for bids to construct a pipeline. The Kazakhs, Turkmen and other Central Asian republics would finally get their oil and gas to sea and on to market, the United States would enjoy cheaper gasoline and the Afghan people would benefit from construction jobs and transit fees... As we shall see, the facts -- strong, well-reported evidence rather than shrill conspiracy theories concerning Enron and other recent scandals du jour making the rounds on the Internet -- do not support these assumptions. The following pages will demonstrate to the satisfaction of a reasonably open-minded reader that United States involvement in Central Asia and in Afghanistan specifically, a gruesome and cruel exercise that has already cost more lives than those taken on September 11, is motivated primarily -- if not solely -- by the desire to control a significant stake of the world’s largest untapped reserves of oil and natural gas. The United States began undermining the Taliban regime using covert CIA military operatives within Afghanistan more than a year before 9-11. By the summer of 2001, the U.S. government, amplifying policies previously in place under Bill Clinton, had decided to replace the Taliban regime, and had developed the air strategy to do so. Did George W. Bush know in advance that the United States would be attacked on September 11? We do not know. When the attacks came, however, the Bush Administration had to decide how to react. In the end, their response was a call for a worldwide ‘war on terrorism’ in which other nations would have to choose to side with the U.S. or be treated as its enemy (‘you’re either with us or against us’); the first American implementation of that policy was its undeclared war in Afghanistan. And because the contingency plans for invading Afghanistan had already been developed, all that was needed was the few weeks necessary to transport U.S. troops halfway around the globe.” My Government Went to Afghanistan And All I Got Was This Stupid Pipeline The Complete Truth About the U.S. Attack on Afghanistan. Ted Rall 2002
All this malarkey about spreading Democracy is a total sham. It is the twenty first century version of the same B.S. the Europeans used to justify their rape and pillage of Africa, the Caribbean, North and South America, Asia and the Pacific over five hundred years ago They said they were spreading “civilization and Christianity” to the savages. The invasion of Afghanistan had nothing to do with 9-11. 9-11 was the incident the Bu$h administration used to trick Joe and Jane Sixpack into going along with their program. Much of the world is aware this is the real deal, the only part of the world that doesn’t is located in North America, “During the year following September 11, American newspapers and television news outlets studiously avoided mentioning oil, gas and Afghanistan in the same breath. Citing European and South Asian news sources, however, a few Western writers tried to draw the attention of a befuddled American public to its government’s impure interests in the ‘war on terrorism.’ Historically, it’s no secret that war almost always goes hand in hand with economic motives, and economic incentives for American involvement often involves control of fossil fuels (12). U.S. intervention in Somalia, for instance, had less to do with feeding hungry Africans than controlling the strategic Gulf of Aden, through which oil tankers pass from the Indian Ocean en route to the Suez Canal via the Red Sea. While the Vietnam conflict is popularly believed to have stemmed from the Cold War-era ‘domino theory’ obsession among U.S. officials, energy company interest in South Vietnamese natural gas reserves played at least as vital a role in American military intervention as anti-Communist ideology. And few doubt a relationship between the importance of Venezuela as the biggest producer of oil in the Western hemisphere and a botched Bush Administration coup attempt against its democratically-elected president, Hugo Chávez. Given the enormous energy resources at stake in Central Asia, these cynics suggested, there was much more to American adventurism in Afghanistan than immediately met the eye. George W. Bush’s popularity has remained largely unaffected by intimations of dark intentions related to the war on terrorism, even though his use of 9-11 as a transparent ploy to fight an oil war is potentially a scandal of gargantuan proportions. It certainly helps that this, the biggest unreported story of 2001, received virtually no airing on American network news or in daily newspapers.”
The US mainstream media kept their end of the bargain by not reporting on the real developments in Afghanistan and Central Asia just as they would later play a major role in selling the AmeriKKKan public George W Bu$h and the NeoCons’ lies about WMD in Iraq. But the good news is the tide is turning, Bu$h’s lies about WMD in Iraq have come back to haunt him. More and more people are thoroughly disgusted with the Bu$h-Cheney cabal , their warmongering, carnage and the mess they have made of the world. Now if only more folks would peek into the history and background of Afghanistan and 9-11 and follow the money and oil trails Bu$h and his cronies would be run out of Washington on a rail and tried for treason. This is why they are so desperate, they feel the tide shifting against them and they must do everything in their power to hold onto their dream of global conquest and hegemony. Don’t mistake this as merely a Republican vs Democrat thing, both parties are in cahoots because it’s a ruling elite thing. Even if the Democrats take over the Congress in November; they will still pursue many of the policies dictated by the transnational oil consortiums and international bankers, only it will appear more benign on the surface. The only real way to stop this carnage is to change the whole government, how it operates, who runs it and how the people genuinely participate in it.
