Nine-Eleven in Five Easy Pieces

Piece, the First

Now get to the really good stuff – or, actually painful would be more like it. But since context is everything, let us begin at the nominal beginning. War is an addiction in many ways, but big capital is fiendishly hooked on it. They usually play both sides and get the proceeds of the cost of the conflict, and then feast on the contracts to rebuild what they have just gotten rich while destroying. Iraq, of course, is an obvious case in point. But how does a regime get ordinary people to pay for, and die in these profit-making schemes? Let us turn to a master at the trade.

“Why of course the people don’t want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally, the common people don’t want war: neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship…Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.”

Hermann Goering, at the Nuremberg Trials before he was sentenced to death

Telling a people that they have been attacked though it was stage managed by internal forces is known as a false flag operation, and is an ancient state ritual. Goering only refined the tactic somewhat. For the Nazis it was the Reichstag fire, supposedly set by a communist, but later shown to have been the work of the SS using an access tunnel from Herr Goering’s office. For Lyndon Johnson, it was the Gulf of Tonkin incident. It can plausibly be argued that there has never been a war that did not result from such a fraudulent claim upon the desired enemy, most of them utterly without either motive or means, or both, to stage such an attack.

The evidence that the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq were planned long before September 11, 2001 is so widespread, it can even be found in the books of former insiders of the Bush Administration. More ominously, the call for those unprovoked invasions, and many to follow, were made by an outfit called the Project for a New American Century that is composed of the jolly gentlemen known as neocons that have been nested around the bushbrain since he was appointed God, or at least his emissary here on earth. They lamented in a document called Rebuilding America’s Defenses that there would be little enthusiasm among us ordinary folk for such an expensive and deadly enterprise, unless a tragedy on the scale of Pearl Harbor provoked us to demand revenge.

This is very telling since it has been rather conclusively shown that the original Pearl Harbor was itself an entirely avoidable event, provoked and facilitated by FDR to get the US into WWII. In the case of the “attacks” on the WTC and the Pentagon, the enemy du jour had to be helped along, as this was not a very sophisticated crowd such as the well equipped Japanese. In fact, they didn’t have to lift a finger. The PNAC boys were so eager for their wars and empire building projects, they called on their good friends in the Israeli and US intelligence communities to make it all happen. And happen, it did.

So piece number one is a bunch of Zionists and oil barons infesting the NSA and Defense Department that have multiple motives for inciting a war against several Muslim countries, and perhaps the only people on earth with the means to pull it off. And they had the audacity to publish it, knowing that Americans are so cowed by the image of the almighty Federal Government that few would ever even question such a striking coincidence. Of course, it helps when they knew they could count on the press to play their part in whole charade, and the cover-up that followed.
