The 21th Century Decade Retrospective

Two earth-shattering catastrophes shaped the last ten years. The first 911, the staged terror event that provided the self-justification to wage an endless war against phantom enemies and the second a financial meltdown of the debt ridden international banking system. This has been a frightful decade for America.

Instead of looking at a straight chronicle timeline, the more meaningful approach is to relate events as they apply to a decade of war and loss of civil liberties. From a financial perspective, the 21st century has been a record of continuous weakening of Western economies and decline of a standard of living. The pillars of social and political stability deterioration are the legacy of the last ten years.

View the 9/11 Truth Quotations video to understand the significance of the last ten years.

Who could expect the presidential election between Bush-Gore would be so inconsequential at the time. The war party's intention to usher in an era of perpetual conflict was guaranteed far in advance of tallying the chad count. The fateful day of September 11, 2001 was but a pretend rationalization to strip the few constitutional remands of an expiring Republic. The term Bin Laden would come to describe a state-run "PysOps' hysteria experiment, rather than a real threat to the national security.

The "war on terror" morphed into the "war of terror' with the passage of the Patriot Act . The enactment of legislation that significantly increased the surveillance and investigative powers of law enforcement agencies is the centerpiece of the post 911 domestic despotism.

The infamous " Axis of Evil " propaganda parlance intentionally stoked the fires for retribution reprisal. The Bush-Blair collation produced fake evidence of WMDs in Iraq, setting the stage to target their manufactured outrage, against a former CIA asset, Saddam Hussein .

With Defense Secretary Colin Powell's UN speech justifying invasion of Iraq, he "could not escape the reality that this speech greased the skids for death and destruction in Iraq and brought unprecedented shame on our country".

Operation Iraqi Freedom starts the last gasp of the military-industrial-complex to colonize oil resources and to encircle Asian aspirations. The "Central Intelligence Agency admits that the imminent threat from weapons of mass destruction was not present before the 2003 Iraq war began".

The Department of Homeland Security expands into the domestic police force, as a jingoistic response to the regime terror that condoned the 911 myth. Democrats sweep into Congress and pave the way for Obama on the promise to stop the oversea madness. Bush wins a second term and promptly proclaims a troop surge in Iraq.

Business as usual continues with new bipartisan scandals among House and Senate members. With the damage already done, the troop deployment shifts to an Afghanistan war expansion. Bush claims a second "Mission Accomplished' after the Iraqi elections but GOP loses presidential election to an unknown Senator Barack Hussein Obama.

To the surprise of only hard left loyalists, the police state continues and new legislation extends into additional areas of domestic terror. The decade ends with 1 WTC, aka Freedom Tower , reaches the halfway mark.

Now watch the DEBT Crisis: The Bail Out and Tarp Totals and the Origins of the 2008 Financial Crisis videos to learn causes of the breakdown.

On a parallel track, the financial history of the last ten years tells an even more frightening tale. The millennium begins with " President Bill Clinton signs Commodities Futures Modernization Act (CFMA), deregulating the derivatives markets and credit-default swaps. Enron would go on to become the largest corporate fraud in history".

The period leading up to the crash has these financial developments according to Wikipedia :
