Averting Shia-Sunni World War

 
Friday, January 08, 2016
AsSalaam-O-Alekum, to Muslims and Non-Muslims alike --- all that word means in English vernacular is “Peace be with you”. I like that greeting. Peace be with you. Why can't I greet all my fellow man with that greeting? I find no such restriction in the Holy Qur'an which enjoins peace as well as justice to be established among all mankind. So I like that greeting. Perhaps a more pertinent greeting might have been “Justice and Peace be with you”. But that is not the traditional greeting of Islam which calls itself the religion of justice and peace. The Islamic greeting is only “peace be with you”. I wonder why?
And I wonder why Muslim historiography suggests that AsSalaam-O-Alekum is to only be used for greeting among the Muslims themselves, not for greeting non-Muslims, despite the categorical universal teaching of the Holy Qur'an being in direct contradiction to that Jewish-like feeling of exceptionalism. And most Muslims buy it. The more religious ones actually frown when non-Muslims are greeted with AsSalaam-O-Alekum. I say frown on – for the sands of time shall soon leave you on the antediluvian shores of history you source your religion from.
Even more bizarre, what does this greeting mean when Muslims are seen to be killing each other across the planet, and the non-Muslims stare at us in befuddlement? What peace? Muslims are killers and should even be kept away from the United States of America --- that is even the charged political slogan of the newest presidential campaign for the 2016 presidential elections.
The manufactured reality that has been accorded to “Islamic” terror and its soldiers of heaven, Al-Qaeda, Taliban, ISIS, Daesh, good terrorists vs. bad terrorists, good rebels vs. bad rebels, the new Saudi-Iran confrontation on the brew, holy Muslim nations flying the flag of Islam seen to be vying with each other for seeking heaven with Western weapons while the Western alliance keeps bombing and/or sanctioning them to smithereens – only to record the few immediate headlines that greet the general public on a daily basis – what is this fiction of “peace” that Muslims imagine themselves to be the sponsors of, must surely occur to every non-Muslim spectator on planet earth.
Non-Muslims must surely wonder how civilizationally primitive we bunch of Muslims are, 1.6 billion to 2 billion in number, and none the wiser on how to live in amity in our own modernity with any degree of sophistication and wherewithal. They see us continuing to live in antiquity --- divided as we are along ancient historical lines of Shia and Sunni. What is that all about --- non-Muslims can never quite get their heads wrapped around that display of “peace and harmony” among Muslims themselves for their fourteen century long history of antagonism towards each other despite their common Good Book and common beloved Prophet. Just like the Muslims cannot get their heads wrapped around Catholics vs. Protestants, both sharing the same Good Book and common sweet Jesus, and still fighting each other to death through the ages in the name of the same peace-loving Jesus Christ. The last ferocious battle witnessed in my own times, in Ireland. The Catholics and Protestants seem to have as much in common with each other beyond their Good Book and their beloved Savior as the Shias and Sunnis.
I can't and don't wish to speak to the Christian diversity, let Christians solve their own problems if they deem it to be a problem without Muslims pretending to be holier than thou, but I can sure speak, and must speak, to the problem of my own heritage, for it is indeed a problem. Muslims have a common Good Book --- yet virtually all sects among Muslims understand its meaning differently. Why? Because each and every sect among Muslims lives in history. We let historical narratives penned by the hand of man inform us of our religion Islam instead of the singular common scripture of Islam, the Holy Qur'an, inform us of our understanding of Islam. This fact has been true in every single generation after the Prophet of Islam. The previous generations defined what Islam was for the succeeding generations in virtually a geometric progression instead of the Holy Qur'an determining it exclusively. Today what Islam is among Muslims and what Islam is in the Holy Qur'an can appear to someone like Mr. Spock of the Star Trek fable, to even be separate religions. For what else can explain Saudi Arabia vs. Iran today --- the custodian of the two most sacred pilgrimage sites of Islam pitted against the self-proclaimed valih-e-faqih-e-muslimeen?
War among Muslims today may be made imminent no differently than how it was made imminent between Iran and Iraq for eight long years just three decades ago. I hope I am wrong but these clouds of war have been most Machiavellianly setup to quickly mutate into an all out war between Sunnidom vs. Shiadom --- that's bringing into its blood-fold the sympathies and loyalties for one side or other all 1.6 to 2 billion Muslim peoples. Peace? What peace? And Justice, never mind that platitude --- for it hasn't been practiced among any people from time immemorial.
The real source of all these wars and fratricidal killings among Muslims is the historical bifurcation between Shia and Sunni. The Western hegemons harvest these cracks and lacunas today with as much cunning as the Muslim kingdoms did in antiquity. We can't blame the West altogether for their greedy opportunism to conquer lesser civilizations if we insist on behaving like one. And we surely can't blame them for their exercise of cunning because they learnt the fine art of fratricide and hegemony from Muslim caliphs themselves over the past fourteen centuries.
There is a profligate king in Saudi Arabia holding the Islam flag. There is a holy jurist in Iran holding the Islam flag. The king upholds some variant of Sunni Islam. The jurist upholds some variant of Shia Islam. The West supports the king. The West sanctions the jurist. And now they are about to be pitted against each other to become the cause of millions of new entrants to heaven. While neither the king of Saudis nor valih-e-faqih of Iran will die in battle, you and me will be called upon to seek heaven by taking sides. And most of us will do so along the Shia-Sunni divide. How predictable is that? It is no prediction. It is not even stochastic. It is exactly deterministic. Those Sunnis who do not like the Saudis will either still support them or stay neutral – for heaven forbid they support the Shia Iran. That is the reality of antagonism between these two macro sects of Muslims today.
See this excerpt from an ancient political treatise (presented as historical fiction) if you think the cracks and lacunas among Shia and Sunni don't exist, or are not known to the arsonists who will come galloping as the fire brigade next, just as they are today the 'harawal dasta', the Marines if you will, fueling and then prognosticating the fire in preparation for the main Army's arrival.
It was the same calculus during the eight year Iran-Iraq war in 1980s. Almost the entire Sunnidom supported Iraq even though some of the Sunni nations did not particularly like Saddaam Hussein. Even when Saddaam was the prima facie aggressor. The history is about to repeat itself, at multiple levels. And as before, the narrative in the Western world will remain under the full control of the sponsors of this war. The same narrative is simply re-echoed in the East.
You can imagine the killing of the Saudi Shia dissent scholar Sheikh Nimr by the Saudi kingdom to be virtually equivalent to the killing of Franz Ferdinand, Archduke of Austria-Este, whose calculated assassination in Sarajevo on 28 June 1914 precipitated Austria-Hungary's declaration of war against Serbia leading to World War I. That world war led to 50 million dead and all existent empires replaced by the rising Pax Americana. That Pax Americana is to be replaced by World Government through these upcoming manufactured world wars. That's the general blueprint. 9/11 was its first provocation for the final push to global transformation. Shia-Sunni conflagration is to be the next in the long series of creating world order out of chaos. All kinds of sophisticated propaganda craft is already being brought to bear to add fuel to the making of these new killing fields just as it was during Iran-Iraq war where brother killed brother, 8 million, an order of magnitude more than the fratricide in the American Civil War.
Can we do something about this age old antagonism which is perennially ripe for harvest? These undeniable historical fissures among Muslims are continually enlarged by those who are neither Shia nor Sunni, for their own agendas. While we can Band-Aid them or pretend we have no fundamental problems and all problems are with the West, the reality stares us in the face. As the war of words between Saudi Arabia and Iran heats up, and as Muslim countries and Muslim public start aligning with one or the other side along their sectarian lines (witness here, here, here here, here, here, here, here), what can ordinary peoples, you and me, often the spectators of history, and also its canon fodder, do?
I see only one rational and practical solution. Transcend the Shia-Sunni divide by approaching what is common and sacred between them both. The Holy Qur'an! It exists among us in the same pristine form that it did at the time of the Prophet of Islam --- or at least, that is the common belief among all the 1.6 to 2 billion Muslims on earth today.
But that model hasn't really worked in history --- why would it work now? You ask...
I would like to submit for your reading pleasure the following series of articles that I composed as a most ordinary student of reality (haqeeqat), on the topics that most divide Muslims along the Shia-Sunni bifurcation. Most of us fall into one of those two macro sectarian categories by virtue of birth and socialization. Whatever subsequent studies some might undertake to understand their respective inheritance, either on their own, or as seminary students en route to scholarship and ullema status, is often froth with the trappings of both data availability bias and confirmation bias. Meaning, incestuous self-reinforcement of the theology, beliefs as well as practices, we each grow up under, while remaining unconscious or at least oblivious of that fact. The self-evident fact is that religion is our inheritance, like the DNA.
But the question that often arises in the mind of the young intelligent Muslim and the young intellectual Muslim, and which he and she is not able to ask openly while living among the patriarchy and their orthodoxy, is should religion be an inheritance? The fact that one is born in a Muslim home already inclines one towards it and decides the fate outright. Whether one is born in a Shia home or Sunni home and any of its sub-sects is only a secondary issue. The question the intelligent Muslim asks, given that one is born in a Muslim civilization, and given that Muslims are so easily pit against one another, does the sectarian divide also have to be an inheritance, or can one just be a Muslim? The inquisitive mind not satisfied by status quo ventures further afield and asks, what does the Holy Qur'an itself say about matters that both the Shia and the Sunni scholars merely presuppose in their theology and which they each argue with such self-righteousness and convictions?
For such youngsters, and I mean by that term those young at heart as well as mind who are unafraid to challenge the idiocy of orthodoxy and want no part of it, here are links to the essays composed thus far based on whatever humble and limited study that this scribe has been able to undertake and deconstruct away from their respective orthodox versions. I offer these humble writings to the laity and their scholars alike, for two reasons: 1) as a means of demonstrating and understanding how we believe what we believe regarding Islamic topics, and what great distance it might sometimes be from what its singular scripture the Holy Qur'an itself conveys on the topic by both its omissions and commissions; and 2) as a means of introducing the lamentably long-dead idea of using the intellect to parse and comprehend the teaching and guidance in the Holy Qur'an directly from the Holy Qur'an itself, using its own verses as the primary source of its own 'tawil' and interpretation. This automatically leads to an informed mind that is sensibly able to compare what socialization/culture/history/home and our overemphasis on "experts" have bequeathed to us as religion, vs. what the actual unadulterated teaching is that is still easy to be found in the Holy Qur'an by anyone with an iota of intelligence and seriousness in disposition to perform their own due diligence.
The results are rather surprising, even shocking, and I share that surprise here both as a learning and teaching tool, as well as in furtherance of the pursuit of the unasked question: what the religion of Islam is for each new generation if its understanding is not to remain ossified in the narratives of antiquity. That unasked question does not imply changing the meaning of Islam or altering the Divine Guidance contained in its singular scripture the Holy Qur'an, as is the primary misdirection in the West today to suit its Western interpretation and Western narrative, but to understand Islam directly from its own unadulterated singular source using our own time and space as the reference point. Just as the people of the past had the opportunity to do the same thing in their own epoch. Why are we taking their understanding of Islam circumscribed by their own time and space, as our own?
This, even on the face of it, appears absurd. To be shackled to their understanding of Islam through our own socialization and confirmation biases, and our paying homage to our elders and deference to our scholars by using their brains in lieu of our own, is an insult to the religion of Islam which has proclaimed itself for all time and all space. The religion of Islam has proclaimed itself in the Holy Qur'an as the Divine Guidance from the Lord of the Worlds, to each and every man and each and every woman in all times with no more Prophets or Messengers to be sent. If that assertion is believed to be true, and no Muslim doubts that it is in fact not just true, but The Truth, then each generation and every people in every civilization must try to understand Islam by decoding its message contained in its own singular scripture, the Holy Qur'an, afresh for their own time and space.
That is so darn obvious that it even surprises me, one not too bright, how easily Islam has thus far been ossified and shackled in the narratives of history not just by the pulpits, but by ordinary peoples themselves. What I offer below is one tiny drop in that new ocean of revisiting the religion of Islam directly from the Holy Qur'an using our own frame of reference to decipher and understand its message. What shall we find in it?
In the interest of forging Muslim unity (what with all the emphasis worldwide to divide Muslims along sectarian lines and have them kill each other), I have taken up the topics that divide us fundamentally, often on idiotic grounds due to want of knowledge of the Holy Qur'an itself. More to come, if life and opportunity permit, and if motivation persists. Discussion is encouraged. Corrections are welcome; it will surely help cogency if corrections are offered not as “expert” opinions of this and that “scholar”, but from the same source as these analyses are themselves based upon, the Holy Qur'an.
All Articles in the series What does the Holy Qur'an Say
In addition, I have been studying the subject of Imam Mahdi like many Muslims who are interested in this topic, and have realized that what the vast majority of Muslims, both Shia and Sunni, have been led to believe about eschatology appears to be entirely Indeterminate in the Holy Qur'an! Most of what we are taught is actually from books and pages outside of the Holy Qur'an. What does the Holy Qur'an itself have to say about Imam Mahdi – the Awaited Savior of humanity – if anything at all? The exploration of this question (in item [6] above) led to writing the following letter which I hope may inspire many more Muslims to dare to use their own intellect to try to decipher the message of the Holy Qur'an and to base their faith upon that decipherment in their own time and space.
Such individual endeavors automatically plant the fundamental seeds of amity among Muslims: to gather around the Holy Qur'an for comprehending any and all issues which divide us, as the primary source of seeking understanding of the Divine scripture. To understand what the Holy Qur'an itself teaches on its own topics, instead of what the pen of holy man says it teaches. This endeavor, undertaken with a desire to learn rather than to confirm presuppositions, dissuades from the idiotic sectarian disunity that is evidently natural to us, preventing us from becoming one people, an ummah, because of the artifacts of history, historiography, hagiography and the unfortunate socialization into that orthodoxy. We are all beholden to this socialized orthodoxy by birth such that despite our best intentions, we, in fact, end up following the religion of our forefathers as in the infamous age of Jahiliya of antiquity. Is our age, the modern age, fundamentally all that different?
Without hesitation I advance the argument that our base attitudes are really not all that much different despite our traveling in modern airliners instead of on camels and horses. Our civilization may have marched on outwardly, but inwardly, we are still living in the past. We still continue to draw on our meagre understanding of what is largely the socialized past, to inform us on how to interpret our present. Socialization into our history as part of both culture, and what is deemed religious, continues to inform our beliefs and order our rituals. It is that base reality which fundamentally divides us into Shia and Sunni by birth. This is self-evident. The end result, under Machiavellian doctrinal motivation and tickling of the right sensibilities --- fratricide, Muslims killing Muslims. Whereas, the Holy Qur'an, which contains none of that history, historiography, or hagiography, nor sects and partisanship, easily unites us if we only permit the Good Book to speak for itself. If we only permit its verses to be the main source of interpretation for its own verses, without referring to what the hand of man conjured up to become the happenstances of history (historical events) and its partisan narratives (hadith literature, who said what to whom). By definition history and its narratives are anecdotal, for, indeed, an alternate history and alternate future is always possible. Whereas the Good Book, the Holy Qur'an, is Divine Guidance for all histories and all futures of mankind --- empowering mankind to change its own conditions and its own futures --- if one accepts its assertion of timeless Divine Guidance to all mankind. How can one particular instance of history among a tribal people circumscribe its understanding? It sensibly follows that it cannot. For that reason none of the particulars of the period of revelations is in the Holy Qur'an which otherwise uses ample histories and parables of other nations past to forewarn Muslims of what can become of them if they followed the same paths.
Preventing that transition of understanding the Holy Scripture from its own verses in the light of one's own times, is not just in the interest of both the empire du jour and the clergy classes for the abundant opportunities of divide and control that socialization into status quo confers, but also self-interest. Who likes to accept that they have been largely socialized into myths as religion?




Thank you.

Oligarchic Primacy for World Government

The myriad crises which afflict humanity today, from the Global War on Terror to Global Financial Crisis to Global Pandemic, and a few more to come including Global Food Shortage to UFO-Alien Invasion, are only the successive Hegelian mind-fcks, ahem, the “acts” and “deeds” of making current affairs “look like a great ‘booming, buzzing confusion’ to use William James’ famous description of reality,”. Each new ‘booming, buzzing confusion’ creates the raison d'être for more global laws which incrementally erode more national sovereignty. The harvesting response to each new crisis Machiavellianly brings the nations of the world one baby-step closer towards the Global Governance of the entire planet. A one-world government if you will.
The devilish modus operandi is to deliberately fabricate global problems, or their illusions, and offer only those predetermined solutions which result in bigger government, incrementally leading to a single one-world global police-state. “Create conditions so frightful at home and abroad that the abandonment of personal liberties and national sovereignty will appear as a reasonable price for a return to domestic tranquility and world peace.”
The oligarchic powers behind the scene harness every fault-line and discord among peoples of every nation, to ensure that the world public can never recognize a common predator, and thus never be able to forge a united front against their common nemesis. What is so remarkable is the absolute ease with which these Übermensch leeches, sucking the life blood of the untermensch mankind, have been able to get away with it since 9/11.
The book whose free Internet Edition cover appears below, The Poor-Man's Guide to Modernity 2015, is intended to be the potent antidote for that ease. The Plebeian Antidote to Hectoring Hegemons! It is equally easy – simply remove “truth's protective layers” and Machiavelli has no place to hide. All else naturally follows.

Islam and Techniques of Imperial Mobilization

 
The religion of Islam since its inception had been hijacked into an absolutist system for the exercise of imperial power by Muslim rulers. Anyone on the throne or the pulpit could interpret the verses of the Holy Qur'an any which way they liked, simply by making recourse to outside narratives written by their own favored scribes. By thus fixing the values of the Indeterminates in the Holy Qur'an to suit narrow self-interests, it was easy to hijack Islam to motivate the public to accept Muslim empires in the name of Islam. Fanning the flames of gratuitous interpretations by overzealous scholars, and fixing these Indeterminates throughout the ages with partisan and imperial narratives, reinforced different socialized interpretations among the masses of the same common text of the Holy Qur'an. It made divide et impera (divide and rule) in every generation even simpler. Not just for outside invaders, but for Muslim rulers themselves who reigned in dynastic empires for centuries at end. Social Darwinians, despots and democratic ones alike, don't rule by themselves or in vacuum. They always have a willing and compliant public behind them. And hijacked Islam has furnished as fertile a ground for invoking divine privileges upon the public mind as Christianity.
How is one to prevent the hijacking of the Holy Qur'an from a self-serving understanding for oneself due to the inevitable socialization and perception biases, before one can even begin to interdict the pious pulpits and superpower think-tanks hijacking Islam for imperial mobilization?
Hegemony, they say, is as old as mankind. As Aldous Huxley and Zbigniew Brzezinski both fleshed out in their respective dystopic visions of society Plato's ageless dilemma of power always perversely controlling the public mind if it can get away with it, getting mankind to love its own servitude has been the goal of every ruling class from time immemorial. Can it be effectively resisted by the public? Or, is mankind doomed to the perpetual battle of Darwinian primacy until the Last Days?
The book whose free Internet Edition cover appears below, Hijacking The Holy Qur'an And Its Religion Islam – Muslims and Imperial Mobilization, 2015 Revised Second Edition, abbreviated to Hijacking Holy Qur'an And Islam, scrutinizes that question from a unique angle – the intersection of religion of Islam and political science. This book is a macro case study in social engineering, of why is the Holy Qur'an and its singular religion named Islam, so easy to misinterpret for self-interests, and consequently so easy to hijack for “imperial mobilization”. This book is not about faith, or on proselytizing Islam, but about understanding the mechanics of ruling power, and how it makes the public mind today to achieve global primacy using “Islam” as the bogeyman.

Understanding ISIS BY Zahir Ebrahim

 
This is also Part IX of Raahe-Nijaat (the way out) series on Pakistan
First, one must comprehend the theory behind fomenting controlled chaos of “revolutionary times” by supporting both sides of the conflict. The concept of Insurgency and counter-insurgency as a war paradigm for sustaining “imperial mobilization” under the cover of controlled chaos is explained in: “Insurgency vs. Counter Insurgency” (http://tinyurl.com/Insurgency-Counterinsurgency). Fomenting and harvesting “revolutionary times” with self-inflicted or manufactured terror is explained in the tutorial “Understanding Self-Inflicted Terror” (http://tinyurl.com/Manufacturing-Terror).
The new militant “Islamic State” with “caliphate” galore is only the manufactured progression of going from empire's own stateless antediluvian actors playing their scripted “Taliban - Al Qaeda terrorist” role as public enemy number one of the United States and the civilized world, to stateful antediluvian actors playing their scripted “ISIS - terrorists' expansionist” role as public enemy number one of the United States and the civilized world. Twenty-first century barbarians being brought to power to foment not just the “Clash of Civilizations”, as the erstwhile Jewish political theorist Samuel Huntington at Harvard University, and still ever present “foremost Western scholar of Islam”, Jewish prof. Bernard Lewis at Princeton University, had formulated it in the 1990s, but the “Clash between the Civilized World and Barbarians” as Daniel Pipes, the Jewish Islamophobe drum beater of “radical Islam”, more accurately couched the empirical manifestations of “militant Islam” after 9/11.
The nemesis is similar to the manufacture of Christian NAZI socialism and godless Soviet Communism in the twentieth century. Both similarly characterized upon their fabrication. Both secretly supported and funded by Wall Street to fabricate potent stateful enemies to wage World Wars against in order to force the creation of a new oligarchic world order from the ashes of the old world left behind.
That clash of the opposites is necessary to raise the phoenix from the ashes, so to speak --- a greater and greater combine which eventually encompasses the entire earth as the natural culmination of an expansionist state.
That clash is political theory based modus operandi most vociferously pursued by the German political philosopher Friedrich Hegel. A one-world global state systematically fashioned out of back to back Hegelian Dialectic seeded deadly conflicts of opposing forces that last multiple generations, but which piece-meal result in the advocacy and adoption of predefined solutions that achieve the predesired outcome of world government.
Hegelian Dialectic has now been empirically shown to be not just a political theory, but the most effective and fastest format for engineering consent for a new world order of world government – the singular dream of all world conquering despots that has hitherto remained unfulfilled. The wholly Jewish concoction of “militant Islam” vs “moderate Islam” as a Hegelian Dialectic has previously been examined in the seminal study “Report on the Mighty Wurlitzer - Architecture of Modern Propaganda for Psychological Warfare” (http://tinyurl.com/MightyWurlitzer). Hegelian Dialectic is explained in “Hegelian Dialectic - What is it?” (http://tinyurl.com/Hegelian-Dialectic-What-is-it).
Our golden scientific era, which Zbigniew Brzezinski called the Technetronic Era, has created the means to rule the whole world as never before, and the ubermensch oligarchic forces that run the sole superpower on earth along with its vassal states, have seized that opportunity for primacy; an outcome that is inevitable when primacy defines imperatives and nations ruled by men who make laws to legalize their primacy. Since the exercise of primacy requires the existence of a persistent and continuous threat to the well-being of the masses, thus the headlines announcing the new phantasmal terror threat to Western civilization: “Islamic State 'beyond anything we've seen'”
'Washington: The Islamic State poses a greater danger than conventional “terrorist group” and is pursuing a vision that could radically alter the face of the Middle East, US Defence Leader said Thursday [August 21, 2014].
The IS jihadists could be contained and eventually defeated by local forces backed by the United States, but the Sunni population in both Syria and Iraq would need to reject the group, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and General Martin Dempsey told reporters.
Hagel warned that the Islamic State is better armed, trained and funded than any recent militant threat.
They marry ideology and a sophistication of strategy and tactical military prowess. They are tremendously well funded. This is beyond anything we've seen,” Hagel told a news conference.
Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that the group adheres to a fanatical ideology and has “a long term vision” to take over Lebanon, Israel, and Kuwait. If they achieve that vision, it would fundamentally alter the face of the Middle East and create a security environment that would certainly threaten us in many ways,” he said.
... The bombing runs and humanitarian aid to the local population [Zahir's note: the guns and butter again] have stalled the Islamic State's “momentum and enabled Iraqi and Kurdish forces to regain their footing and take the initiative”.
Asked if the US would hit the militants in neighboring Syria, Hagel did not rule out the option but did not indicate strikes there were imminent.' --- AFP, Friday August 22, 2014, via Dawn.com
Now the “ISIS” will finally begin to make rational sense. It is a wholly manufactured enemy, created for a specific purpose: continued “imperial mobilization” in the pretext of countering this nemesis. “ISIS” is just another armored division of the US-UK-NATO military nexus comprising both useful idiots, and trained mercenaries, both wearing barbarian uniforms and being carefully choreographed by the same high command that sets up military invasions in the sole superpower's collaborative but highly compartmentalized nexus. American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives have been cunningly transformed from the primacy of the national flag to the primacy for world government of the oligarchy riding the national flag.
Listen to Michel Chossudovsky on Guns and Butter with Bonnie Faulkner deconstruct: “ISIS: An Instrument of the Western Military Alliance (or click here to stream):
ISIS rampage through northern Iraq a staged event; special forces integrated within the terror brigades; U.S. supporting both sides; transformation of countries into territories: Sunni Caliphate, Independent Kurdistan, Shia Arab Republic; Iran being sucked into conflict; water wars; long-term U.S. geopolitical objectives.” --- http://archives.kpfa.org/data/20140618-Wed1300.mp3
What Michel Chossudovsky did not address in that interview, is the overarching agenda behind the piece-meal “transformation of countries into territories” out of once sovereign nation-states; states which were themselves carved out of long running empires in the last century. But none as smart as Michel Chossudovsky and Bonnie Faulkner are ever unaware of the hidden motivations which give rise to facts and events that are recorded by historians and rewarded for their labors. Those seeking out the covert motivations and the covert forces that drive these facts and events over time and space and often made to appear disjoint and unconnected, if their discoveries fall on the wrong side of empire's standard model for sanctioned narratives, are of course only the “conspiracy theorists” (sic)! But beleaguered nations seeking self-defence cannot do so effectively using the standard model of the empire. It is like having the fox guard the hen house and daily preaching to the hens how to protect themselves!
Now contrast this forensic dismantling of the diabolical Hegelian Dialectic with the virtuous officialdom's pious version, the standard model for all mainstream narratives: “US Offers Iraq 'Intense And Sustained' Support” (Sky news, June 23, 2014) and “Kerry confronts threat of new war in Iraq” (AP, June 23, 2014).
'BAGHDAD — Confronting the threat of civil war in Iraq, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry flew to Baghdad on Monday to personally urge the Shiite-led government to give more power to political opponents before a Sunni insurgency seizes more control across the country and sweeps away hopes for lasting peace.
The meeting scheduled between Kerry and Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki was not expected to be friendly, given that officials in Washington have floated suggestions that the Iraqi premier should resign as a necessary first step toward quelling the vicious uprising. Nor will it likely bring any immediate, tangible results, as al-Maliki has shown no sign of leaving and Iraqi officials have long listened to — but ultimately ignored — U.S. advice to avoid appearing controlled by the decade-old specter of an American occupation in Baghdad.
This is a critical moment where, together, we must urge Iraq's leaders to rise above sectarian motivations and form a government that is united in its determination to meet the needs and speak to the demands of all of their people,” Kerry said a day earlier in Cairo. He was there in part to meet with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi to and discuss a regional solution to end the bloodshed by the insurgent Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL.
No country is safe from that kind of spread of terror, and none of us can afford to leave that entity with a safe haven which would become a base for terror against anyone and all, not only in the region but outside of the region as well,” Kerry said in Cairo.' AP, June 23, 2014, http://news.yahoo.com/kerry-confronts-threat-war-iraq-065105238--politics.html
While keeping the Hegelian Dialectic of threat from “militant Islam” wielding insurgents intact, US retired Lieutenant General Michael T. Flynn, former head of the US Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA) and JSOC, lends some left-handed (diluted) confirmation from the horse's mouth of the arming, and aiding and abetting, of ISIS (ISIL, Daesh). In his interview to Al-Jazeera English (watch here) in Washington D.C. on July 29, 2015, titled: Is the US to blame for ISIL?, ret'd. General Michael T. Flynn stated:
General Flynn: We are at war with a radical component of Islam. In a way I believe is that Islam is a political ideology based on a religion. [correcting himself at the prompting of the interviewer] Islamism. Islamism is an ideology based on a religion. So when I say I have been at war with Islam, I mean I have sat down with members of the al Qaeda, members of the Taliban, that are my age, very well educated, and I have asked them: WHY, what is it that's going wrong somewhere that we are fighting each other. What is your excuse? And if the excuse is that the West is bad, you know, the Jews of Israel are bad, that's not a good excuse.
Interviewer: [prompting the General to differentiate the political group using the religion of Islam as cover from people who believe in the religion]
General Flynn: I don't agree, I don't agree, the serious leaders of these groups absolutely believe that their version of Islam is the right version, the correct version.
Interviewer: [again prompting the General with more known facts] We are now seeing reports that the top ranks of ISIL are filled with Baathist ex-army officers from Sadaam's regime, they are not all religious fanatics. ... [MI-5 says that:] “far from being religious zealots, a large number of those involved in terrorism do not practice their faith regularly, and could actually be regarded as religious novices”
General Flynn: I don't disagree with that. But I will tell you that there is a sufficient number of leaders in, still in, al Qaeda, and definitely in this group we call ISIL, their religious beliefs are very strong.
Interviewer: and therefore it's a religious war in your view?
General Flynn: I think that it's a political war. It's a political war. But I think they use the excuses that they have. It's a political ideology based on a religion. We have to come to grips with that.
Interviewer: [prompting the General to admit America's own role in the rise of ISIS] In 2012, three years ago, let's just be clear here for the sake of our viewers, in 2012 your agency was saying, quote: [reading from a previously classified August 2012 DIA document made public through FOIA] “the Salafists, the Muslim Brotherhood, and al Qaeda in Iraq, are the major forces driving insurgency in Syria.” In 2012, the US was helping coordinate arms transfers to those same groups. Why did you not stop that? If you are worried about the rise of Islamic extremism? ... The administration turned a blind eye to your analysis?
General Flynn: I don't know if they turned a blind eye. I think it was a decision. It was a willful decision.
Interviewer: A willful decision to support an insurgency that had Salafists, al Qaeda, ...
General Flynn: The decision to do what they are doing.
(http://www.aljazeera.com/programmes/headtohead/2015/07/blame-isil-150728080342288.html , video http://youtube.com/watch?v=SG3j8OYKgn4 ,
snippet from time 05:20 to 12:30, transcribed by Project Humanbeingsfirst, parenthesis are transcriber's summary of the Interviewer's prompts)
As one can see, the confession of the General is not the usual “blowback” or “oops” theory, as both the domestic antagonists of the American administration and the dissent con-artists in the United States and elsewhere have pitched of ISIS. Indeed in much the same manner that they had previously pitched “al Qaeda” and “OBL” attack on the United States on September 11, 2001. The American General, confirming the support and arming of ISIS by the American government, carefully characterized it as deliberate, and not some miscalculated blowback of a policy gone awry: “I think it was a decision. It was a willful decision.”
Observe how the well-rehearsed Al Jazeera interviewer was cleverly used as the foil to lend continuous legitimacy to the official propaganda line of threat from “militant Islam” via narrative control within strict confines of the establishment's party line, and its repetition ad nauseam. Only under the careful aegis of that old core lie, which was first conveniently reestablished very early on in the interview with the help of the willing useful idiot who spoke perfect British English, was this new confession of it being “a willful decision” of the American government, carefully made by the newly retired American General.
The signal in Flynn's statements, carefully wrapped in the sea of propaganda noise and half truths, is: “I don't know if they turned a blind eye. I think it was a decision. It was a willful decision.” That the rise of ISIS, ISIL, Daesh, whatever its name, is not short-sighted policy gone awry, but the rise of insurgency is the government policy itself.
So what's up Doc? ...

Understanding Self-Inflicted Terror

 
Introduction – A Primer on Terror
The world is full of well-intentioned fools, useful idiots, dupes, stooges, as well as mercenaries and the vile superman. It is often difficult for me to tell which is which. The common pretense among this crowd, whether they be ordinary individuals or elite members of institutions and organizations such as the news media, government, or academia, is so brazenly stupid that it makes distinguishing among them somewhat difficult. The desire to appear simpleton and naïve in the affairs of imperial mobilization; to appear to not want to comprehend the diabolical techniques of deceit by which hegemony is exercised; to appear to not want to comprehend the role of terror, false-flag operations, and self-inflicted wounds that lend 'legal' pretexts for aggression; to appear to not want to comprehend the role of Machiavellian provocation in international relations to exercise foreign policy objectives; to appear to not want to understand the role of false leaders manufactured for false opposition in order to mislead the handful of conscionable citizenry who do not share in the goals of empire; etc., is their one common trait. Well, are they really so insipidly stupid that they can't add 2 + 2 = 4 correctly? Or are they just pretending to be stupid? The former can perhaps still be taught to do basic arithmetic for hardly anyone is really born that stupid. And stupidity, though reprehensible, is hardly a crime in itself, even though it easily leads to monumental crimes against humanity when stupid people “United We Stand” with absurdities and accept atrocities committed in the name of “protecting” them. The latter however, the mercenaries and the superman, shall someday hang as traitors to mankind. Justice has an uncanny way of extracting its purse --- as Robert H. Jackson demonstrated to the old Nazis at Nuremberg in 1946. That sentiment may appear to be wishful thinking today, but tomorrow is another day.


Before we can even begin to understand the external enemy and counter his diabolical modus operandi in self-defence, we must first come to accurate grips with the enemy within which interdicts and preempts that self-defence – ourselves.





Understanding Sellout: The Art and Science of Co-option
Dedicated to my children, and to all young men and women
We often complain, of the world, of its unfairness, its injustices, its deprivation, its inequity, and almost always find others to blame, especially the politicians, the superman, the greedy, the conniving, those seeking primacy, and the sociopaths, the hectoring hegemons, the international bankers who fund all sides to make wars and peace, colonialism, PAX Americana, formerly PAX Britannia, and when all fails, we blame fate, karma, and of course God, that He made the Devil. The Social Darwinians among us, the secular humanists, blame it all on religion, the cause of all of mankind's failings. And the most avant-garde among us, the new age crowd, blame it on aliens, gods who continue to wage epic Hellenic battles at the expense of mankind. The hard empirical reality of course, one which is rarely spoken of, whether out loud or in silent whispers, is that the first failing, the supreme failing from which all else follows, begins at home. It is the one we purchase for ourselves.
Caption The three wise monkeys: hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evil (image via wikipedia)
This essay, summarizing what I have learnt of the minefield of co-option in my journey as a student of truth, is humbly dedicated to the young generation, of every era, and to my children. It is my profound hope that instead of merely giving importance to these matters towards the tail end of one's professional journey (like American scientist and M.I.T. president Jerome B. Wiesner, like myself, an M.I.T. hammered engineer who also contributed his own two dry straws worth of “mind and hand” during his “youth” in building the Technetronic dystopia now upon the world), or remaining indifferent to the very end, they might engage with reality more forthrightly at the launch of theirs. As Winston Smith, working tirelessly at The Ministry of Truth in London, quietly wrote in his diary in George Orwell's depiction of today's dystopia in his prescient fable Nineteen eighty-four, feeling that he was setting forth an important axiom:
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”
The older generations worldwide have veritably been co-opted to accept the dystopic arithmetic of two plus make five, now being taught ubiquitously by today's version of The Ministry of Truth. Which is why we live in the absurd dark age of War on Terror, the full blown global terror network of the Goldstein of our age in the making. Phantasmally divided today between “al-Qaeda” and “IS”, previously between “al-Qaeda” and “Sadaam's WMD”, covertly armed, aided and abetted as surrogate armies of empire cast in the role of “bad guys” to wage endless wars against, and none harboring lofty moral gravitas in noble Oceania fighting for the cause of liberty against the barbarians, is able to call a spade a spade.
The young generations are the only hope that they learn to navigate the corrupting seas of co-option, self-interest and perspective-pollution with some degree of wherewithal from the very inception of their professional lives. For only then shall they find the courage to do basic arithmetic correctly. All good will naturally follow. Without the skills and courage for basic arithmetic, they will remain caught between self-interest and being useful idiots in every era, stupidly chasing “hope”, “revolution” and “democracy” as the mirages of “change” like their learned elders before them. All evil will continue to beckon. This is the empirical truth.
Youth need not be wasted on the young.





Understanding Manufactured Terror – THE WHY?
Witness the following from the period of the Cold War, where synthetic terror was used in Western Europe in order to convince the increasingly skeptical Western European public that the Communist threat was real – revealed ex post facto in the BBC documentary in 1992 on NATO's Operation Gladio. Part-3 of the Gladio documentary has the following lovely statement quoted from the US Army's Top Secret Field Manual:
Top Secret: There may be times when host country governments show passivity or indecision in the face of Communist subversion ... US Army Intelligence must have the means of launching special operations which will convince host country governments and public opinion of the reality of the insurgent danger ... US Army Intelligence should seek to penetrate the insurgency by means of agents of special assignments, with the task of forming special action groups among the most radical elements of the insurgency.”
Replacing “Communist subversion” in the text above with “Islamofascist terror” or "domestic-terrorists' terror" makes what is being stated in this BBC documentary ominous. It begs the commonsensical question: Is wanton acts of terrorism inflicted upon innocent civilians still a Machiavellian part of statecraft today?
According to James Jesus Angleton, Head of CIA Counter Intelligence Operations from 1954 to 1974, and under whose watch all the momentous terroristic murders of America's most rebellious political leaders transpired (JFK, RFK, MLK, X), Machiavelli is Statecraft: “Deception is a state of mind and the mind of the state”
Click to watch: Operation Gladio - BBC Time Watch 3 Part Series June 1992

Zbigniew Brzezinski, former president Jimmy Carter's national security advisor, observed the following in his 1996 book The Grand Chessboard:
It is also a fact that America is too democratic at home to be autocratic abroad. This limits the use of America's power, especially its capacity for military intimidation. Never before has a populist democracy attained international supremacy. But the pursuit of power is not a goal that commands popular passion, except in conditions of a sudden threat or challenge to the public's sense of domestic well-being. The economic self-denial (that is defense spending), and the human sacrifice (casualties even among professional soldiers) required in the effort are uncongenial to democratic instincts. Democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization.
Caption Edward Bernays' Propaganda: The Public Mind in the Making  (Book cover 1928)





Understanding “Plausible Deniability”
During the inception of the Cold War, Harry S. Truman, the 33rd President of the United States, in a 1947 National Security Council directive known as NSC 10/2, signed the Machiavellian idea of “Plausible Deniability” and public deception as essential to undertaking successful covert operations:
'NSC 10/2 directed CIA to conduct “covert” rather than merely “psychological” operations, defining them as all activities “which are conducted or sponsored by this Government against hostile foreign states or groups or in support of friendly foreign states or groups but which are so planned and executed that any US Government responsibility for them is not evident to unauthorized persons and that if uncovered the US Government can plausibly disclaim any responsibility for them.”'
These Machiavellian insight into the calculus of statecraft by American statesmen themselves beg the obvious question: Does “Plausible Deniability” still continue after the end of the Cold War, and if so, how does it manifest itself?
Caption American Government Response to Conspiracy Theories





Understanding Surrogate Terror Blamed on Manufactured “Militant Islam”
  • The Muslim mind grossly misperceives the difference between gardeners and weeds. Focussing on weeds, no matter how eruditely, is inconsequential if the diabolical gardeners who secretly water it without revealing their role (wit Brzezinski “God is on your side”), and often also manufacture it (wit Zionism, Islamism), are not dealt with first. Their ‘Übermensch’ mind will always cultivate or synthesize newer varieties as deemed necessary for “imperial mobilization”.
  • The first order problem is not the weeds, which is only the effect. The first order problem is their first-cause, the gardeners. These “weeds” do not grow to this level of social and political penetration all by themselves.
  • The weeds are “tickled” into existence, fertilized, nurtured and harvested by the gardeners for crafting a perpetual enemy to fight against, often times as red herrings.
  • While the unsuspecting public attention remains focussed on the weeds’ attention-grabbing plays in the left-field, the real game of “imperial mobilization” goes on in the right-field in the guise of countering the terror being continually manufactured by these weeds; at times naturally by the very fact of their continually fertilized existence and the “doctrinal motivation” fed to them; at other times on demand as targeted false-flag operations blamed on the weeds who often die in the process; and always by the power of myth construction of an elusive all powerful Ali Baba and his rapidly multiplying surrogates in the now well-fertilized terrain of “militant Islam” who not only threaten all of Westerndom, but the entire civilized world.
  • The modern uniforms of this Western manufactured terror base are those of the Salafi-Wahabi-Deobandis-Taliban-Al-Qaeeda et. al. motif. Only the label and color of uniform varies to give the illusion of multiplying weeds.
  • These vile surrogates and their sub surrogates work for empire no differently than NATO's Stay Behind Armies did, through layers of compartmentalized handlers.
  • The fact that “Saudi petro dollars” are only in proxy service to their masters’ voice is no state-secret.
  • Cut off the gardeners' resupply lines to the weeds, and the weeds will not only die their own natural death with no intelligence apparatuses left to feed them, but that fate can then, finally, also be accelerated by some judicious use of “Roundup”, the weed killer!





Understanding “Worthy Victims” and “Unworthy Victims”
Click to read: Worthy Victims vs. Unworthy Victims
By Chomsky's definition, the “worthy victim” is always worthy of being mourned, as it is made victim by the bad guys or their allies. The “unworthy victim” is unworthy of being mourned or even worrying about, as it is made victim by the good guys or their allies.
And because frequently occurring “worthy victims” continually refuel the necessary “doctrinal motivation, intellectual commitment, and patriotic gratification” to sustain “imperial mobilization” since “democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization” as Zbigniew Brzezinski puts it, it is not beyond empire to create the “worthy victims” itself using the bad guys as stooges.
If you are bothered by these images of “Harmless innocence Melt” (Milton), mercilessly snuffed out in the bud and unworthy of even being mourned by both the massa and its house niggers, then:





Understanding Manufactured Dissent
The whole aim of practical politics of dissent by genuine gadflies to power is to prevent the future fait accompli that is being engineered by 'history's actors' in the present. This is why genuine dissent, that with real teeth and non-zero efficacy, cannot be permitted to exist and flourish. It is instead replaced with manufactured dissent as an essential part of statecraft itself when the illusion of dissent and public opinion is to be maintained in a 'free' democratic society.
Rehearsing crimes of power after these crimes are fait accompli; after all the barbers in town already know it; after their disclosure as the narrative of official history through FOIA declassification, whistle-blowing and deep-throat leaks, and in posthumous confessional diaries of monumental war criminals, none of which really reveal any real secrets, or only do so ex post facto when it is already a fait accompli; is either the job of the professional historian who relies on officialdom to write the official history pre-sanctioned by power by what it chooses to document and what it chooses to make-believe to posterity, or of manufactured dissent!





Understanding the Intellectual Nigger who plays dissent
Malcolm X, assassinated by the “lone gunman” along with other recalcitrant political leaders of the United States in the 1960s, offered the following perceptive description of the house nigger and the massa in his autobiography:
Today's Uncle Tom doesn't wear a handkerchief on his head. This modern, twentieth-century Uncle Thomas now often wears a top hat. He's usually well-dressed and well-educated. He's often the personification of culture and refinement. The twentieth-century Uncle Thomas sometimes speaks with a Yale or Harvard accent. Sometimes he is known as Professor, Doctor, Judge, and Reverend, even Right Reverend Doctor. This twentieth-century Uncle Thomas is a professional Negro ... by that I mean his profession is being a Negro for the white man.” -- (Malcolm X, The Autobiography of Malcolm X, 1964, 1999 hardcover edition, Chapter Black Muslims, page 265)
Martin Luther King Jr., also assassinated by the “lone gunman”, inspired by Malcolm X's unrelenting witticism, also dared to reluctantly capture the mind of the house nigger who eats from the massa's plate thusly:
The white establishment is skilled in flattering and cultivating emerging leaders. It presses its own image on them and finally, from imitation of manners, dress, and style of living, a deeper strain of corruption develops. This kind of Negro leader acquires the white man’s contempt for the ordinary Negro. He is often more at home with the middle-class white than he is among his own people. His language changes, his location changes, his income changes, and ultimately he changes from the representative of the Negro to the white man into the white man’s representative to the Negro. The tragedy is that too often he does not recognize what has happened to him.” -- (Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope, page 307)
Witness the following statement by Lord Babington Macaulay, in his speech before the English Parliament in 1835 devising the new education policy for the Indian sub-continent – the Jewel in the Crown of the British Empire – to deliberately fashion the house nigger to serve empire:
We must at present do our best to form a class who may be interpreters between us and the millions whom we govern, --a class of persons Indian in blood and colour, but English in tastes, in opinions, in morals and in intellect.” -- (Lord Thomas Babington Macaulay, Minute on Education, 2nd February 1835, page 8)
Click to read: What is an Intellectual Negro?
In summation, self-inflicted terror, manufactured by Machiavellian techniques of perception management and narrative control which employ a retinue of stooges, dupes and patsies, is always accompanied by cloaking narratives of the Mighty Wurlitzer in order to make the act of terror achieve its core purpose of mass behavior control. In order to deflect the intelligent people among the public from unraveling the covert agenda and being believed by the masses, villainous methods ranging from “plausible deniability” to alleging “conspiracy theory” are employed to confuse and mislead the rest of the public from believing the unraveling.
Not that complicated is it, once the diabolical methods of Machiavellian statecraft and its engagement with the Hegelian Dialectic are understood. Without achieving that perceptive understanding however, the whole concept of self-inflicted terror indeed appears like a 'kookish' conspiracy theory.





Understanding Current Affairs
So now go and apply all that knowledge and insights learned to understanding current affairs. All larger than life terrorist acts worldwide, from the “terror central” which is Pakistan to the United States' 9/11, London's 7/7 to India's 26/11, and Afghanistan to the Middle East, the so called asymmetric warfare between non-state actors creating “insurgency” and the state-machinery's heavy-handed response called “counter-insurgency”, both designed to augment the perpetually drummed-up international threat of “rogue-states” destroying the civilized world with their ill-gotten WMDs, are part of that same calculus of “imperial mobilization”. The Machiavellian import of the statement: “But the pursuit of power is not a goal that commands popular passion, except in conditions of a sudden threat or challenge to the public's sense of domestic well-being.”, suddenly takes on real empirical dimensions from mere words in an imperial paperback. The publicly reported facts by mainstream news and telling photographic/video images that have emerged on the internet from the Boston Marathon Bombing of 2013, begin to make a lot more sense when viewed from this overarching diabolical calculus, of a self-inflicted Operation Gladio Boston, than what the mainstream narratives echoed from federal, state, and city officialdom would have one believe.
Indeed, a careful re-examination and consequent unlayering of all prior public beliefs that are based primarily on the officialdom's narratives of who committed all these terror acts, and why, from the first catastrophic terrorism on 9/11 in New York to its mostly psy-ops sibling on 4/15 in Boston, can induce severe cognitive dissonance. It is the state of mental discomfort upon realizing that virtually everything one has been led to believe in these matters, may in fact be nothing more than just Alice in Wonderland make-belief. That, the real imperial play going on in the left-field is something else entirely, while the public's attention is diabolically drawn to the staged-theatrics of Islamofascist terror in the right-field!
As soon as one realizes this monumental public fraud, of manufactured and synthetic terror being instrumental for “imperial mobilization”, suddenly all the wonderful people worldwide, from statesmen to politicians to intellectuals, who have led the gullible public to make-believe in the tooth-fairy Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeeda, themselves become the NEW PUBLIC ENEMY NUMBER ONE --- Oh what a shift in enemy a mere shift in perspective can make when one learns how to separate propaganda from the reality of the matter:

Caption An FBI video presentation titled “Militancy Considerations” measures the relationship between religion-piety and violence among the followers of the texts of the three Abrahamic faiths [ the god's chosen people obviously coming out on top!!! ] As time goes on, the followers of the Torah and the Bible move from “violent” to “non-violent.” Not so for devotees of the Koran, whose “moderating process has not happened.” The line representing violent behavior from devout Muslims flatlines and continues outward, from 610 A.D. to 2010. In other words, according to this FBI presentation, observes wired.com, the religious Muslims have been and always will be agents of aggression.

Understanding “Imperial Mobilization” Today – What is it?
Imperial Mobilization to induce “birth pangs of a new Middle East” is variously blamed upon:
  • the Zionist agenda for Eretz Yisrael ;
  • and/or upon the sole superpower's Primacy and Its Geostrategic Initiatives, as architected by Zbigniew Brzezinski, to preemptively acquire and extract the natural resources in the Middle East and Central Asia before any other nation or group of nations can rise to challenge its dominance.
The former Zionist agenda is pitched as the ungodly wars waged by the Jewish neocons who dominate Washington, blueprinted in their PNAC and other Wolfowitz drawn strategy documents for Securing the Jews-only Realm.
The latter superpower agenda is pitched as the wars of primacy for America's sole preeminence, blueprinted in Zbigniew Brzezinski's The Grand Chessboard and in Pentagon's many Joint Vision strategy documents.
Both premise, while appearing sensible in 2003 when I too employed them in my maiden book Prisoners of the Cave, in the light of today's empiricism outright lead to absurdities.
America is going bankrupt due to these global wars with rising national debt which now stands in the 13 trillion dollar range as officially reported by the US Treasury, and its budget deficit this year, 2011, is 1.4 trillion dollars. This means America has to borrow, i.e., have its central bank the Federal Reserve print, 40 cents for every dollar it spends, thus also commensurately increasing the national debt and the burden upon the already suffering American tax payer.
What sort of idiotic primacy agenda for preeminence is that?
The United States hasn't been able to extract any of the natural resources either from the Middle East and Central Asian soils anymore than she was already extracting previously – as much as it wanted – with its own coddled dictators firmly in power.
Why did she need to wage murderous wars to decimate the region to remove its own cultivated dictators?
It also sure hasn't been good for the Anglo-American oil companies – they can't do business when the region is torn asunder by the cycle of insurgency and counter-insurgency manufactured by the Anglo-American Allies themselves. Same in Afghanistan – no pipelines, only the so called quagmires, as even the mainstream news of the United States puts it.
As for Israel, if Eretz Yisrael is the principal reason for decimating Iraq with millions of tons of Depleted Uranium munitions, destroying its fertile top soils and bountiful water tables, not to mention the ancient DNA of its inhabitants, and with only immense hatred and ire of its millions of Arabs now irretrievably implanted to greet the Zionist from Israel if they ever set foot onto its soil for resettlement, then the Jews can't really occupy that land for themselves now can they?
What did the Israelis really gain by brutally removing the servile Iraqi puppet of their own client state, the United States?
Only chaos in the region!
What Zionistan's founding father, David Ben Gurion, would have easily called “revolutionary times”. Well, according to that science of hegemonic conquest, these chaos-like conditions in the Middle East have also only created more fertile grounds to administer further mind-fcks to the natives because what is inconceivable in normal times is possible in revolutionary times”.
What other benefit? Perhaps some smaller equally compliant but unstable ethnic principalities carved out of the former equally compliant monolithic and stable Iraq, which today lies in ruin.
But wait, NO Eretz Yisrael!
Only enormous hatred for Israel, and America.
What an agenda for preeminence!
Only the keystone cops could have blueprinted it.
Hmmm....





Conclusion
It is best summed up in Sun Tzu's The Art of War, for all those handful of resistors who dare to stand up against the macro social evil engulfing mankind but continue to flounder chasing red herrings because of their overly simplistic understanding of the battles before them:
'If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.'
For all the rest of silently spectating mankind, the image below speaks it all:
Silence is a WAR CRIME
Caption Silence is a WAR CRIME: and I still curse the killers, their accomplices, the indifferent spectators who knew and kept silent, and Creation itself, Creation and those who perverted and distorted it. I feel like screaming, howling like a madman so that that world, the world of the murderers, might know it will never be forgiven.” (Nobel Laureate Director of the famous HolocaustTM Museum in Washington DC, Elie Wiesel, the self-proclaimed “traumatized Jew” and “melitz yosher” as the “defender of Israel” after surviving the infamous Nazi HolocaustTM, writing in his memoir All Rivers Run to the Sea)
While the world public may be patiently and expectantly waiting for Allah or Aliens to intervene, and the elite espousing the doctrine of neutrality as “a bridge across a difficult period”, the accumulation of Big Lies of empire as official history is casting Islam, a world religion of 1.6 to 2 billion peoples in the early twenty-first century, as the first-cause of all terror from which all the rest of evil follows. Countless generations are, and will grow up believing these Big Lies of the twenty-first century to be the new unassailable historical truths much like the Jewish HolocaustTM. Posterity is being given a fait accompli. The price of silence is far more pernicious than mere ordinary war crime. It continues to extract its pound of flesh for generations to come, and permanently cripples future epistemology as the new record of history.
That is the present score!

Caveat Emptor

Please be advised that Project HumanbeingsfirstTM fully cooperates with all law enforcement and other governmental agencies worldwide in rooting out Terrorism in all its nuanced shades and stripes in order to end its Neanderthal reign of terror upon all who are human beings first. Project Humanbeingsfirst does not distinguish between terrorists clad in turbans and those wearing suits, nor between the predatory rampages of the pirates vs. the emperors, albeit each is apportioned the measure of crime and guilt commensurate to their respective station of power and impact on their victims. Law enforcement personnel worldwide, but especially in the United States and the West, are encouraged to participate with Project Humanbeingsfirst. It is essential for all nations' state security apparatus to learn how to forensically identify the monumental supreme terrorists hiding in plain sight among us under legal cover, the real merchants of death, while they dutifully chase down the easy to spot handful of often deliberately manufactured pirates at sea.
