What Hurricane Barry tells us as it floods an already flooded New Orleans is that the "terrorist threat" that the US allegedly faces is a hoax.

What do I mean? Think about it this way. Terrorists, if such exist, have had ample warning about New Orleans' precarious position with the swollen Mississippi river in flood stage for the longest period in recorded history. What would terrorists be doing as I write? They would be setting off explosives to breach one of the levees and watch the Mississippi river wash New Orleans away.

This is simple child's play for terrorists who, if you believe the US government, are so clever that they outwitted airport security four times in one hour on the same morning, hijacked four airliners, and brought down three World Trade Center skyscrapers and part of the Pentagon.

Indeed, there are any number of dams and levees that could easily be breached with chaotic results. The same for power sub-stations and cell phone towers. "Airport security" is a pointless exercise as terrorists can kill far more people by exploding their bombs in the crowds waiting to clear TSA than they can by blowing up an airliner. The easiest way for terrorists to cause mayhem is to empty boxes of roofing nails during rush hour on all major arteries in all major American cities. It would take weeks to clear the roads of the hundreds of thousands of cars. Life in the major cities would come to a standstill. People couldn't get to work, school, or hospital. Food deliveries could not be made. Those without provisions would lose a lot of weight and some would starve to death.

All of these acts are far easier and far less complicated to arrange than the 9/11 attack. Yet not a single one of them has occurred. Other than TSA terrorizing US citizens, what terrorist acts have we experienced? School shootings, assuming they are real and not stage productions, are not done by Muslim terrorists.

The absence of Muslim terrorist attacks in America is puzzling in view of the mass slaughter, maiming, orphaning, and dislocation of millions of Muslims by the US government for almost two decades. This absence of retribution must seem strange to Americans who are accustomed to extreme demonization of Muslims.

The war on terror is a hoax used to...

(1) justify Washington's destruction of seven countries in whole or part during the first two decades of the 21st century,

(2) create a domestic police state and achieve the acquiescence by US citizens in the loss of their Constitutional protections, and

(3) to create fortunes for favored operatives of the police state, such as Michael Chertoff the director of Homeland Security who became rich selling scanning machines to TSA.
