Conspiracy theories abound throughout the Internet, as occurs when anything of this magnitude occurs - and one of the most astounding theories I’ve come across is that Great Britain was actually behind the attacks as published on Alex Jone’s site:
British Intelligence is Behind Mumbai Massacre
Mumbai comes during the last days of the Bush Administration, Lyndon LaRouche said today, in which we are expecting the very worst to strike globally. And the British are also in heat right now. Therefore, you are looking for the very worst at this time. And, because of the Pakistan ISI (Inter-Services Intelligence)/British MI-6 involvement, Mumbai could not have happened at this time, unless the British were involved in it.
“Don’t look at it as coming from a propaganda line, to an action,” LaRouche warned. “The propaganda line may have nothing to do with the action. Don’t look for a propaganda algebra that will give you the key to who’s behind it. In a situation like this, propaganda algebra doesn’t work. The EFFECT does. What is the EFFECT? Who wants the effect?
Now ask: Are they active, for example,– are they active in the region? Are they targetting Iran? Are they targetting a destabilization in Iraq, from the present situation? That’s what you look for. Or another attack on Syria. Why did Ehud Olmert reverse himself when he returned to Israel from the US, to turn around and deny that Washington had warned him against attacking Iran? You aren’t looking for a propaganda line; you are looking for simply an involvement.
Cheney is the bellwether in this. Cheney’s involvement, or his group’s involvement in it. And remember, they’re the same thing as the British. MUCH MORE
This is an article that all should read, and when I first read it, my first thought was “WTF???” Then, I took the time to read-up on Lyndon LaRouche’s track-record for being correct - and if you read it yourself - it’s mind-numbing how often Mr. LaRouche has been correct in his predictions and analysis of several issues that have actually been absolutely correct, and this time, I hope that he’s dead-wrong!
On Op-Ed News, my favorite Liberal/Progressive news and commentary site, several articles are of interest - and I’m listing them by those which I believe are the the most germane to this issue:
Both of the articles on Op-Ed News cause the reader to ask themselves what this attack against Mumbai actually means to the global community, and again, the question of “Why Now” and who would benefit from such an attack is a question that needs to be answered - and fast, before Pakistan and India find themselves at war again, which has an extremely strong possibility, if war does break-out, of resulting in a nuclear holocaust. If this was indeed “India’s 911″ as is being suggested by our mainstream new media, there’s no doubt in my mind that the Bush administration would declare a “state of emergency”, declare martial law, and prevent Obama from being able to take his rightful place as President of the United States.
I was openly skeptical of the first article posted on Op-Ed News, and stated so in a comment, promising that I would post my own thoughts on the attack within 24-48 hours. Instead, I began watching CNN’s Wolf Blitzer and other news commentators almost non-stop, and what I’ve witnessed, especially from CNN, is an obvious attempt to link Pakistan to these attacks. This may or may not be true, however, if you spend enough time watching Wolf Blitzer, as I have done, you can see that he is actively attempting lead many of his guests in placing the blame on Pakistan, and even though he has been attempting to be subtle in his manipulations, the intent is obvious. Remember, Wolf Blitzer has a history with AIPAC, and I believe his interests favor Israel, not the United States (IMO):
“Sometime in the mid-1970s, Blitzer also worked for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee as the editor of their monthly in house publication, the Near East Report. While at AIPAC, Blitzer’s journalism focused on Middle East affairs as it relates to United States foreign policy. In the mid 1970s, Blitzer also lobbied on behalf of AIPAC to better Israel’s foreign interests.” LINK- Advertisement -
Below is what I was initially going to post in regard to these attacks against India, and for the most part, I still believe that Radical Islam is a threat to world peace and stability, but I’ll also admit that some of it was a knee-jerk reaction, probably felt by millions of Americans when we witnessed the carnage that occurred in Mumbai, and our MSM’s spectacular coverage of the attack. My original post is in italics:
“The GOP and Neo-cons have painted the Obama administration, before and after the election as weak on international terrorism. Speaking for myself, an attitude that I believe coincides with President Elect Obama’s stance on terrorism - is not weak, and speaking for myself, when it comes to Radical Islam, my personal views on Radical Islam are more of a “Hawk” rather than a “dove.” As manifested in the carnage and well-planned attack on Mumbai, India, reinforces that stance and substantiates my hawkish view on Radical Islam. Radical Islam is a cancer that threatens world peace, and the targeting of American and British citizen bolsters my views rather than mitigating them; I do place some of the blame on the Bush administration, as he broke his promise to the American people to root out Al Qaeda and the Taliban, promising the people of the United States that terrorists would receive no “safe-haven” anywhere in the world.
Instead of following through with that promise, when both entities were on the run in Tora Bora, Afghanistan was allowed to conduct the mop-up operation with disastrous results, rather than allowing American forces to eradicate the leaders of each organization, he handed-over a vital mop-up operation to the Afghanistan Army who allowed both to escape to the northern tribal regions of Pakistan. Instead of following through with his promise, Al Qaeda and the Taliban were allowed safe-haven in Pakistan and the Bush administration concentrated on the Iraq War for profit rather than eradicating the command and control structure of both groups. Now, Pakistan and the global community is suffering the consequences of that ill-fated decision - and Al Qaeda has effectively re-grouped and are the “cheerleaders” of Radical Islam and their Jihad against anyone that refuses to share their views. The folly of President Bush and Vice-President Cheney have allowed Al Qaeda to increase their influence over similar radical groups - and the constant rhetoric we hear emanating from Pakistan is goading other radical Islamic organizations to continue their war against the global community, plus the destabilizing effect is has proven to be on Pakistan itself; in order to help stem the rise of radical Islam, it is essential that Al Qaeda in Pakistan be eradicated - and the carnage in Pakistan and Mumbai certainly substantiate that belief. In this writer’s opinion, allowing Al Qaeda to continue their constant rhetoric and support of sister organizations is proving to be devastating to the global community - as well as undermining the Pakistan government. To grasp how serious the situation in Pakistan is, please read “Situation In Pakistan Is Much More Complicated Than The MSM Or Bush States.” The situation is Pakistan has dire global consequences which must be addressed by the global community to help stem the rise and influence of Al Qaeda.
