The power elite of America, and every empire in Europe and Asia couldn't wait to go to war in the last century, and used every trick imaginable to incite their slaves to make them want war just as much as they did, if not more. And in war after war the people and soldiers bore the evil consequences of the heartless decisions that were made by their sick and greedy masters, who stayed home and reaped the rewards of their wars. The historian Howard Zinn wrote:
When you look at the endless series of wars of this century you do not find a public demanding war, but rather resisting it, until citizens are bombarded with exhortations that appeal, not to a killer instinct, but to a desire to do good, to spread democracy or liberty or overthrow a tyrant.Critics of World War I and World War II were slandered by the media as isolationists, and unpatriotic. The same demonization campaign was launched following 9/11 and the months before the Iraq war began, and it is being ratcheted up again by the pro-war media as we approach the abyss of World War III.
Woodrow Wilson found a citizenry so reluctant to enter the First World War that he had to pummel the nation with propaganda and imprison dissenters in order to get the country to join the butchery going on in Europe.
The freethinkers and champions of skepticism who don't believe in the official fairy tales and government myths that are created out of thin air to fool the people into supporting what would otherwise be an unpopular war are scorned and compared to schizophrenics. Whether it is falsified story about the attack on Pearl Harbor, the untruthful Gulf of Tonkin incident, or the government-staged 9/11 attacks, the myths created by the state are passively accepted as the real history of the world. The voice of truth is silenced by the media, while the real crazies who are in power are left alone to execute their mad fantasies and wild schemes, and to fulfill their dreams of destruction and conquest.
George Orwell was able to foresee a world regulated by lies and trapped under a false history of the past not because he was a visionary seer but because he saw first-hand the re-recording of history by totalitarian governments and the transformation of fact into myth for political reasons by fascists, government propagandists, party loyalists, and all kinds of blind partisans. In his essay, "Looking back on the Spanish War," Orwell wrote:
I saw, in fact, history being written not in terms of what happened but of what ought to have happened according to various 'party lines.'The biggest lie of our age that has been turned into the official truth is the lie about the September 11 attacks. Muslim extremists and terrorists in general were made a scapegoat for the murder of innocent people, but the real perpetrators were state terrorists, including President Bush, who appeared on television a few hours after the attacks, and gave a rousing speech in which he promised that his administration would rid the world of terrorism and evil.
How will the history of the Spanish war be written? If Franco remains in power his nominees will write the history books, and (to stick to my chosen point) that Russian army which never existed will become historical fact, and schoolchildren will learn about it generations hence. But suppose Fascism is finally defeated and some kind of democratic government restored in Spain in the fairly near future; even then, how is the history of the war to be written? What kind of records will Franco have left behind him? Suppose even that the records kept on the Government side are recoverable - even so, how is a true history of the war to be written? For, as I have pointed out already, the Government also dealt extensively in lies. From the anti-Fascist angle one could write a broadly truthful history of the war, but it would be a partisan history, unreliable on every minor point. Yet, after all, some kind of history will be written, and after those who actually remember the war are dead, it will be universally accepted. So for all practical purposes the lie will have become truth.
Afghanistan was quickly invaded and attacked by the U.S. and NATO, and a year later new lies were invented to justify the invasion and occupation of Iraq. Both of these wars are totally unjust, criminal, and immoral. If Bush had turned a gun on his own head and the heads of his entire cabinet on September 12, 2001 instead of starting a new global war, he would have done more to combat evil in the world then dropping bombs on innocent villagers in Afghanistan and sending young American soldiers to die in needless and destructive wars.
What the Bush administration, the Obama administration, the secret CIA, the Israeli government, and the American shadow government all represent is death, treason, and destruction. The business they profit from is war; a business that is based on lies, disinformation, and deception. The blind customers of war who buy government lies sign away their own lives, and their own minds to their tyrannical leaders, who think nothing of them and would rather see them dead.
Destroying the business of war can't be done without destroying the lies and myths that drive the business. Before we can break the cycle of world wars we must first break our social and political conditioning, and stop believing popular government lies. That is why a new investigation into the 9/11 attacks is so critical for the advancement of civilization and the social and political progress of humankind. Exposing the 9/11 lie is necessary for the continuation of human life and the survival of freedom and justice in the world. The great American orator and Civil War veteran Robert Green Ingersoll said, "Heresy is a cradle; orthodoxy a coffin."
Denying the truth about what really happened on 9/11 is akin to dying: spiritually, intellectually, morally, and ultimately, physically. Hundreds of thousands of innocent people have died because of the 9/11 lie who did not need to die.
Al Qaeda, the international terrorist network that supposedly poses the greatest threat to the United States of America, is in reality a make-believe enemy and a surrogate for the U.S. secret intelligence establishment. The CIA and other similar intelligence agencies in the U.S., Israel, and the West would be way less powerful, maybe even abolished, if such a mysterious and ambiguous enemy as Al Qaeda had not been created.
The creation of Al Qaeda, an artificial military threat, as well as the false-flag 9/11 attacks, gave the U.S. and Israeli governments the green light to declare a global war on terrorism and attack nations in the Middle East who opposed their criminal, aggressive, and expansionist policies in the region.
Al Qaeda can be compared to the Greeks' ploy of using the Trojan Horse in the Trojan War to conquer Troy. The Greeks famously built a large wooden horse, filled it with 30 soldiers, and left it behind at the gates of Troy as a parting gift along with the soldier-messenger Sinon to pass on the message to the Trojans that the horse is meant for the goddess Athena. The Trojans accepted the gift in the belief that it was an empty vessel, and a simple good will gesture, but as soon as night came the men who kept quiet inside the horse came out and unlocked the gates from within for the rest of the Greek soldiers, who were awaiting nearby. Troy was sacked quickly after.
The example of the Trojan Horse shows that a little cunning trick can make military victory possible, and further proof that whichever side is the most cunning is the victor in war.
The myth about Al Qaeda is a modern Trojan Horse trick, allowing the U.S. and Israeli establishment to fool their enemy (the public) and make them accept something that is harmful to them. The Trojan Horse was used to enter Troy; Al Qaeda was used to manipulate the people's beliefs about Islam and enter the threat of international terrorism into the minds of men and women in America, and everywhere around the world. From the standpoint of the crazy radicals and authoritarians in the Bush administration and the mad men in the Israeli government, the Western public mind must be invaded, and conquered.
If it wasn't for the Trojan Horse, the Greeks could not have defeated the Trojans. Likewise, if it wasn't for Al Qaeda, the U.S. and Israeli governments could not carry out a war on terrorism, take away individual freedoms, and invade Muslim nations with the compliance of the media and the public. Al Qaeda is the gift that keeps on giving.
The traitors who cried wolf on 9/11, and pushed America into fighting unnecessary, immoral, and unwinnable wars are still crying wolf about Al Qaeda, despite the fact that the organization is run out of the U.S. shadow government.
In the story about the Trojan Horse, Cassandra, the daughter of the King of Troy, who also goes by Alexandra, warned that Troy would be destroyed if the horse was brought inside the gates. But nobody took notice of her warning of impending doom.
There is a parallel between Cassandra's cry for caution and alarm and what 9/11 truth activists are saying about the September 11 attacks and government terrorism, and how Al Qaeda is being used to justify an illegal global war and a police state in America and other Western countries. But like Cassandra, 9/11 truth-tellers are being ignored and shoved aside. Apparently, human psychology hasn't changed in thousands of years. This time, however, our minds and hearts are being conquered and destroyed, not a city.
