To the living we owe respect, but to the dead we only owe the truth. ~Voltaire
We live in desperate times with desperate grievances, which makes it hard for us to stand tall and enthusiastically call ourselves Americans. In fact, professing to be an American in many foreign lands could very easily get us killed. So much has happened to get us to where we are today. Sadly, our reputation has quickly tarnished into an oblique sense of faded pride. Old glory just doesn't illuminate the sparkle the way she used to...and that is very sad indeed.
For the most part, Americans -- my people -- are honest, hard-working and peace-loving. From one end of this great nation to the other, all cities big and small and in-between are full of people I have just described. And the same can be said about many of our leaders too. Several of them are quite worthy of the title.
Overall, the same can be said of our military establishment. So many soldiers and officers bravely protect us and keep us from harm, both foreign and domestic. Most of them at all branches and levels of service have their priorities and hearts in the right place. They truly are our nation's bravest assets, and are to be forever commended for their loyal and honorable service. God bless each and every one of them.
However, there are those among us who are NOT honest, loving and loyal. They do not have the best interests of the American people in mind. It is those few bad apples -- rich, powerful, military or civilian -- that I despise with all my being. They know who they are. They are the spoiled fruit of our cherished orchard, the hostile seeds of our peaceful garden, they are the few among the many who need to be eliminated from our great national forest. They are the enemy within, and they secretly pull the levers of power...
This leviathan of repugnance, better known as the neo-con establishment, enjoys nothing better than inventing new and improved get-rich schemes geared to boost their military industrial complex. It's alarming how these "schemes" are quietly walked-on-down-the-hall, signed by the joint chiefs, then placed into action -- almost always guaranteeing that many expendable pawns fall to the wayside in order to fill a few tyrannical pocketbooks. Hell, these sick few probably do a ghoulish circle-jerk while saluting each other and forcing the game pieces to meekly take their places on the board for their crude pleasure and amusement.
This devil's dynasty for profit is no mystery to those of us who already understand the matrix. In fact, it's easily recognizable when examining the many discrepancies surrounding the neo-con sponsored attacks of 9/11, and the ensuing war hype that followed on its heel in Afghanistan and Iraq.
However, if you have never been exposed to information such as this, you may become disturbed or frightened by what you see and learn. But keep in mind, you are not alone in this place, so go ahead and swallow the red pill -- we have patiently been waiting for your arrival at this inevitable meeting of the minds. Yes, by all means "join us at truths dinner table," we welcome you with open arms for your understanding and involvement. You can't get lost, simply follow the faint
cries of our dead brothers and sisters who remain trapped in time by the lies that continue to hold them prisoner.
On a personal note -- prior to what I believe to the professional demolition-job of 9-11, I thought I'd seen the worst in men. At least I thought I had until I witnessed junior Bush and his Project for a New American Century neo-cons steal the throne of power and turn our world upside down. But I was wrong, very wrong -- because all previous administrations are easily considered "cream puff material" compared to this treasonous bunch. Their brazen arrogance for terminating the sanctity of life is beyond words, true bonesmen, all possessing vulture DNA.
I thought nothing could be worse than what happened to my father when he served in the military under a different generation of psycho war-maniacs. He was one of many soldiers who bravely fought in WWII and Korea. He was one of the poor souls who walked on the smouldering ashes of Hiroshima after the atomic bombings. Then, in 1946, he was once again inhumanely used as a "Guinea pig" by the nuclear weapons industry at "Operations Crossroads." Sadly, my father and thousands of other good men were herded like fatlings for the kill when their superiors ordered them to the atomic gallows at Bikini Atoll. Once there, they were forced to participate in the largest Atomic test ever conducted by the U.S. The cruel Caesars of that day shamelessly nuked tens of thousands of military personnel in order to critique their precious weapons of mass destruction. But what really crushed him, what really stuck the knife in his heart, was the mental torment that followed when he finally realized that the same government for which he had just laid his life on the line, was interested in just one thing -- heartlessly waiting for him to die like some sick lab rat under a distant, uncaring microscope.
Few people know that our nation's history is replete with such atrocities, and some are still ongoing. We have been plagued with countless traumatic events for a very long time: presidential assassinations, dropping nuclear bombs on civilian targets, exposing our own troops to radiation, depleted uranium and other deadly toxins, starting bogus wars based on lies and deceit, torturing our enemy. So much death and destruction. More times than not, many of us are confused, insecure, worried or even angry if we attempt to face that which we have hidden so well. It's not easy putting yourself under a microscope -- confronting your own self-denial. It's as if this sort of healing process is culturally taboo, or perhaps it's perceived as a malicious violation of one's sacred perception of the nation/state. Let's get real -- we are a heavily populated Republic suffering from mass post-traumatic-stress syndrome (PTSD) .
However, sooner or later we must all face reality. Our national healing can only begin by first asking hard questions and demanding honest answers, starting with ourselves and then from those who represent us. In order to better understand our state-constructed pandemonium, it is crucial to abandon all concepts of honoring or serving the body politic right or wrong. We must ignore criticisms from others who say questioning our leaders during wartime is unpatriotic. Not only is it patriotic to question our leaders during wartime or any time, it's our obligation as United States citizens to do so, since everything they do is done in our names. The reward for making our leaders accountable for their actions is simple -- confusion will bring awareness, insecureness will produce security, and taking a position of dissent will birth a unified force of checks and balances that will embolden peace and justice with the sanctity of trust.
However, its obvious that we have a long way to go before we can achieve our desired goal. We have much to do. What we already know concerning the
discrepancies of 9/11 is quite disturbing, here are but a few of the questions that need to be addressed:
1) How can this administration claim that it had "no idea" that planes would be hijacked and used as weapons to be crashed into buildings when at least five, if not six, training exercises were in operation for that very scenario in the days leading up to and on the morning of 9/11? Does it not seem suspicious that this was planned to confuse NORAD and other defense measures that may have stopped the planes from reaching their targets? As a result of those so called "training missions," several planes were sent in the completely wrong direction. Take note, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld were running these exercises from their secured bunkers at the time of the attacks.
2) It is likely that pre-positioned explosives were used in all three buildings at ground zero. In fact, there was at least 10 characteristics that such is exactly the case.
3) Steven Jones, Brigham University Physics Professor is on-record for stating -- "No steel framed building before or since September 11 has ever collapsed from fire or collision, including Nagasaki and Hiroshima." A testing agency tried to destroy a steel-framed building with jet fuel and failed. Yet, on September 11, three skyscrapers, including the 47-story Number 7 that was not hit, collapsed at free-fall speed. Jones says, "that could not have happened without the use of explosives."
