Now that I am learning more about the China/Russia/Israel connection that is so brazenly ignored by the American media, the obscenities of American politics and media lies appear to be so vile and misleading that I have a real desire to vomit. 

The things Greenwald speaks of below are just so misleading and all I see is that the people of America are being set up for major destruction and a downfall that they will never see coming. All the better to break their spirit even further and speed up their enslavement if things go on track as they seem to be.

The fact that the media pundits know about these things to a certain degree and do not expose the lies puts their crimes beyond the pale. 

As someone said, America frizzles about chasing Afghani goatherders when there are real issues to be dealt with. What a painful reckoning lies ahead!

Anonymous U.S. officials this morning are announcing in The Washington Post that they have effectively defeated what they call “the organization that brought us 9/11″ ~ Al Qaeda ~ by rendering it “operationally ineffective.”

Specifically, “the leadership ranks of the main al-Qaeda terrorist network have been reduced to just two figures whose demise would mean the group’s defeat, U.S. counterterrorism and intelligence officials said.”

And: “asked what exists of al-Qaeda’s leadership group beyond the top two positions, the official said: ‘Not very much’.”

You might think this means that the vastly expanded National Security and Surveillance States justified in the name of 9/11, as well as the slew of wars and other aggressive deployments which it spawned, can now be reversed and wound down.

After all, the stated purpose of the 2001 Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF) which provided legal cover to all of this was expressed in the very first line: “To authorize the use of United States Armed Forces against those responsible for the recent attacks launched against the United States.” 

The purpose of this authorized force was equally clear and limited: “to use all necessary and appropriate force against those nations, organizations, or persons [the President] determines planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, or harbored such organizations or persons.”

Now, the group which the U.S. government has always said was the one that “planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001″ is, according to this same government, “operationally ineffective.” So what does that mean in terms of policy?



U.S. officials stressed that al-Qaeda’s influence extends far beyond its operational reach, meaning that the terrorist group will remain a major security threat for years.

Not just a threat ~ but a major security threat ~ “for years” to come. In fact, it turns out that the version of Al Qaeda that the U.S. just spent the last decade “defeating” on the ground that it perpetrated 9/11 does not even really matter:
“U.S. counterterrorism officials now assess al-Qaeda’s offshoot in Yemen as a significantly greater threat.” 
Even in Pakistan, where the “effectively inoperable” group is based, the CIA refuses even to reduce its activities: “letting up now could allow them to regenerate,” an anonymous official decreed.

And if that’s not enough to keep your fear levels sufficiently high to support (or at least acquiesce to) more militarism, there is always this:
“The arrest this week of an alleged al-Qaeda sympathizer in New York underscored the group’s ability to inspire ‘lone wolf’ attacks.”
That last bit about the “lone wolf” refers to the scary Terrorist Super-Villain, Jose Pimental, caught and unveiled at a dramatic Press Conference this week by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg: a Terrorist even more hapless and inept than the failed Texan used car salesman whose chronic inability to find his keys didn’t prevent him from being recruited as a dastardly Terrorist Mastermind by Iran’s elite Quds Force.

This latest frightening lone wolf menace, according to The New York Times, “had little money to speak of, was unable to pay his cellphone bill and scrounged for money to buy the drill bits that court papers said he required to make his pipe bombs” and, furthermore, “had trouble drilling the small holes that needed to be made in the metal tubes.”

Also, he “lived with his uncle in the Hamilton Heights neighborhood after his mother threw him out recently, appears to be unstable, according to several of the people briefed on the case, three of whom said he had tried to circumcise himself.”
Even the FBI ~ which specializes in converting hapless Muslim youth into Terrorists and then providing the planning, funding and training for the attacks, so they can jump in at the last minute and heroically disrupt the plots they themselves created ~ refused to get involved in this case out of “concern that the informer might have played too active a role in helping Mr. Pimentel.”
In other words, even the Supreme Entrapers known as the FBI “were concerned that the case raised some entrapment questions” and “wondered whether Mr. Pimentel had the even small amount of money or technical know-how necessary to produce a pipe bomb on his own, had he not received help from the informer.”

They’re worried because many of Pimental’s recorded statements were made as he smoked marijuana with the NYPD’s informer as he guided Pimental to attack and instructed him how to do it.
I’m sure we can all agree that we must endure years more of civil liberties assaults, endless war, bulging military budgets, suffocating government secrecy, a sprawling surveillance regime, and the slaughter of countless more Muslim children in order to save ourselves from this existential Lone Wolf threat.

And that’s to say nothing of the fact that endless war, drone attacks, occupying countries, and engineering regime change is precisely what causes and fuels these threats in the first place.

Indeed, NYPD’s Police Commission Raymond Kelly claimed that “Pimentel’s talk did not ‘turn to action’ until recently” when he “clearly ‘jacked up his speed after the elimination’ of the Yemeni cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who was killed by an American drone strike in September.”
In other words, what little Terrorism does exist is caused directly by our own actions ~ the very actions justified in the name of stopping Terrorism.
But this is the defining mentality of Endless War.
Enemies are never defeated; even when they are “operationally ineffective,” they “will remain a major security threat for years.” If their capacity to frighten fades, they just get seamlessly replaced by new Villains (“U.S. counterterrorism officials now assess al-Qaeda’s offshoot in Yemen as a significantly greater threat”).
When that doesn’t work, you just manufacture the Terrorists yourself: by converting, directing and funding them and/or doing exactly that which you know will ensure they continue to emerge.

And when all else fails, you just find a brand new war that ensures the process repeats itself in an endless loop: the establishment bellwether Washington Post today expressly demanded “regime change” in Iran (“by now it should be obvious that only regime change will stop the Iranian nuclear program”). 

The key trick of Endless War is to permanently maintain two contradictory official premises:
(1) We’re on the verge of Victory; and

(2) The threat is grave and we cannot let up.
Without both of those premises, the citizenry will wonder why endless war is necessary or wise.
That’s been the dual-track propaganda that has sustained the Drug War for four decades and counting (yes, we’ve been waging this war for 40 years, but we’re making real progress, but the threat is still so severe that the war must continue into the foreseeable future), and it has been and continues to be the core propaganda that fuels the Terror War.

(1) We have made Al Qaeda “operationally ineffective” and

(2) They “will remain a major security threat for years.”

The GOP foreign policy debate last night was really quite a spectacle, not because of what was said ~ all the candidates other than Ron Paul and, to a lesser extent, Jon Huntsman, did what they always do: created a long list of countries the U.S. should bomb, invade, occupy, and otherwise subvert ~ but because of the cast of characters CNN dragged out as “foreign policy experts” to pose the questions.

It was like a carnival of war criminals, warmongers, torturers, and petty tyrants:
Reagan Attorney General Ed Meese, best known for his 1980s war on pornography, was dredged up to demand that the government be vested with more Patriot Act powers (because he’s a believer in individual liberty and small government);

There was long-time supporter of Ahmad Chalabi and a war on Iran, Danielle Pletka;

Iraq War propagandist and torture regime architect Paul Wolfowitz; and Fred Kagan of the mighty Kagan warrior family.
But remember:
as the supremely “objective” CBS‘ Bob Schieffer made clear in his snickering, scornful interview on Face the Nation this weekend, it is Ron Paul who is crazy and bizarre for suggesting that U.S. aggression played a role in motivating 9/11 and for being worried that bellicose actions against Iran are making things worse and may lead to war.

There are four articles from yesterday relating to Endless War that I highly recommend:
(1) This, from The Atlantic‘s Conor Friedersdorf, about progressives who praise President Obama “as if his civil liberties abuses and executive power excesses never happened”;

(2) This, from Eric Lewis in The New York Times, on the various ways Obama has shielded torture crimes from all accountability and the consequences of his doing so;

(3) this, from The Guardian, on the latest emerging Obama foreign policy “success” to be soon celebrated by Democrats: his efforts to overturn the global ban on cluster bombs (which I wrote about a couple weeks ago here); and

(4) this, from Rolling Stone‘s Matt Taibbi, linking Endless War and the mentality it spawns to the UC-Davis pepper-spraying incident, eloquently elaborating on a similar point I made over the weekend.


  1. Pardon me, but you people never cease to amaze me by your absolute naivety!

    What the hell do you expect?

    * The world economy's foundation is WAR!!! (Report from Iron Mountain)

    If the world economy is founded on war, what the shit do you think happens to the economy, when there ain't any war???

    The reason the world economy is founded on WAR, is cause we live on a sphere (no the earth is not flat, although about 80% of the worlds men who have fuck all interest in taking control of their penis breeding behaviours don't like to confront that fact); and when you live on a sphere, there are FINITE RESOURCES.

    This means that if you BREED LIKE RABBITS (remember those men who are slaves to their penis), then you need to CULL THE EXCESS SURPLUS POPULATION!!

    The best way to cull surplus population happens to be WAR!!!



    “What becomes of the surplus of human life? It is either, 1st. destroyed by infanticide, as among the Chinese and Lacedemonians; or 2d. it is stifled or starved, as among other nations whose population is commensurate to its food; or 3d. it is consumed by wars and endemic diseases; or 4th. it overflows, by emigration, to places where a surplus of food is attainable.”
    -- James Madison, 1791, U.S. President

  2. Andrea you seem to have an anger problem. Watch your salt intake or your heart might explode. I have visited your blog many times in the past but I had no idea you were so very very angry.

    Hopefully your venting will make you feel a tad better. I don't even know where to begin with your tirade although your language is a tad offensive.

    I ain't naive baby and have also read Iron Mountain, oh about 5 years ago.

    I do not blame everything on overbreeding, nor do I buy into the overpopulation story so much as I do into the haves and have nots due to corporate and human greed.

    Nor do I hate men as you seem to do. There are lots of good men out there as well, hopefully you were parented by one.

    One cannot accept the horrors of modern warfare without saying something, the consequences are just too horrid. Four horsemen and all that jazz.

    To be honest, I find your response to be a tad over the top but to each their own ... free speech yanno. Although with some abominations that is not such a good thing as you are well aware.

  3. Oh fuck yet another liberal who thinks HONESTY is ANGER!

    One of my friends (a REAL MAN, as opposed to the 92% penis and vagina kaffirs populating this planet) is a CIA assassin. He once stuck his fist two inches from my face, while informing me he would kill me if I did not shut up. I interpreted his message as INFORMATION, NOT ANGER!! Instead of throwing my toys out of the cot, about how he should control his alleged anger (an interpretation); I focussed on the INFORMATION HE PROVIDED ME.

    Are you capable of focussing on the INFORMATION I PROVIDED YOU, OR DO YOU LACK THE INTELLECTUAL BACKBONE, Ms. Noor Al. Haqiqa?

    Anger would be wasted on an intellectual midget such as yourself!

    As for choosing to be offended! Yet again you display your intellectual midgetness! It is almost impossible to offend me with honesty and evidence to supplemnent such honesty.

    You read Iron Mountain, but it -- and the evidence all around you supporting it -- clearly has not made contact with your midget cognition!

    So you think the earth is flat; do you? Resources are Infinite? God is just going to come down and refill Ghawhar et al; cause the Palestinians, African Kaffirs, Muslims et al ain't capable of controlling their penis and vagina's and prefer to pop out children for slavery and cannon fodder breeding, while blaming everyone else for their choice to be walking kaffir breeding factories of misery!

    I don't hate MEN; I love MEN. I hate two legged walking penis and vagina KAFFIRS!

    Radical Honoursty Kaffir Definition: CCT 06-11

    [e] Radical Honesty SA definitions of the word ‘Kaffir’, relevant to this matter:

    [i] ‘Kaffir Behaviour’: Cultural Beliefs and Procreation Behaviour Definition:

    Individuals who either independently or as a result of their cultural value systems, are incapable of, or unwilling to, practice sexual restraint and procreation responsibility; who consequently breed cockroach-prolifically without personal financial or psychological responsibility to, or emotional concern for, their offspring; and/or who abuse women and children as sexual or economic slaves procreated for such purpose; and/or whose cultural ideal of manhood endorses non-consensual sex (rape) as their sexual slavery entitlement, etc.

    [ii] ‘Kaffir Etymology’: Original Etymological Definition for ‘Kaffir’:

    The word kāfir is the active participle of the Semitic root K-F-R “to cover”. As a pre-Islamic term it described farmers burying seeds in the ground, covering them with soil while planting; as they till the earth and “cover up” the seeds; which is why earth tillers are referred to as “Kuffar.” Thus, the word kāfir implies the meaning “a person who hides or covers”; To conceal, deny, hide or cover the truth.

    [iii] ‘Kaffir Legislation’ = Inalienable Right to Breed’ Poverty, Misery and War legislation; pretending it advocates for ‘peace’ and ‘human rights’.

    Kaffir Law/Legislation provides citizens with the Inalienable ‘Right to Breed’ [and Vote], but demands that Citizens need a Licence to Own a Gun, a Licence to Drive a Car, a Licence to Practice Law, a television licence, a credit licence, a licence to earn a living, a university exemption licence, a licence to fish, a licence to hunt, a liquor licence, a business licence, a marriage licence, etc, etc.

    Kaffir Legislation covers up that an ‘Inalienable Right to Breed/laissez-faire birth control policy + No Social Welfare policies or practices provides for an equilibrium carrying capacity; whereas Inalienable Right to Breed/laissez-faire birth control within a welfare state, results in Runaway Growth, and ultimately greater misery, poverty and war .

  4. Andrea, I post this simply because I am not into censorship unless there is a reason.

    I am just an ordinary person doing what I can here and truly I don't need you or your spleen in my face.

    Frankly, I cannot be bothered to get into it with you because that seems to be your intent. I "get" your points but this is not my personal battle and never has been.

    From you I see a lot of words, feel a lot of frustrated emotion, and a huge whack of intellectual hubris coming from you and ...

    Andrea,I am not a confrontational type, just an intellectual midget who knows her limitations. And I never waste my time arguing with people like you, I am just not smart enough.

    Not only that but I am truly just not interested in what you have to say; that is about the gist of it. We all have different angles to get across and I respect that much more than you apparently do.

    Did you know that when you vent spittle runs down your chin?

  5. HA!! Noor's the best, you idiot!!

    This penis-envy troll "Andrea" only proves the point! What vitriolic trash! Your type extroliaties the viper mentality in our midst....damn you and your reptilian suck life and energy off our planet and you have no frikking idiot imecile tool!---

  6. Noor,

    Your rationalisations may deceive you, they do not deceive me.

    I spent many years working with people suffering from addictions. Addiction to ideology is no different to an addiction to alcohol, drugs, crime etc.

    There are two types of addicts: those who cry about their problem, but are not sincere in wanting to solve their problem; and those who are sincere, just have not figured out the root cause of their problem.

    You cannot help the former, because they are insincere. Their diatribe is just attention seeking victimhood addiction on top of their other addiction. The latter can be helped, but not using conventional kiss-ass psychology. Only if doused with a bucket of cold reality, are these sincere truth seekers able to confront how they have allowed their minds to be hijacked by inaccurate meme's, because they lack the intellectual backbone to confront reality, in all its naked raw brutality. They prefer the delusion and fantasy.

    I thought you were one of the latter; a sincere truth seeker, who simply needed a bucket of cold ice, to snap out of your ideological addiction to fantasy and delusion, to help you to focus your intellectual backbone on search for truth, wherever it may lead you.

    My apologies. It appears I was mistaken.

  7. Then consider me one with limitless access to buckets of ice water. Ice water in which I have been swimming since I was a child. This is, after all, the frozen north in which I live so I just have to hike to the bottom of the street.... salty ice water nonetheless.
