In Topic: ISIS - Should the US go to war with them?

25 February 2015 - 08:29 PM

This is probably the best possibility. Its a big enough problem that we can't just sit back and do nothing but we don't need to jump into ol' world police mode either. The added bonus that there's some real enemy of my enemy possibilities to build some bridges right now as well.

Some bridge building possiblitlies but if you look at recent history, the US is a great stabber in the backer. After 911, Iran was crucial in helping the US in Afghanistan and looking to build the relationship... until the great intellect Dubs announced that Iran was part of the "Axis of Evil" at the SOTU. They were in shock. Can't trust such a political warmongering opportunist as the US then. Can you blame anyone? Frontline covered this in detail with an episode on the topic. Here it is:

In Topic: ISIS - Should the US go to war with them?

I wouldn't doubt that ISIS is manufactured by the US like the Afghan mujaheddin. In that case, the US funneled $$$ through Pakistan to the Afghan "rebels" who were fighting the big bad Soviet threat. The Soviets were invited in by the government to fight these "rebels" who were bombing schools, govt buildings, etc all because they wanted a theocratic state, not the more secular one that was in place. Guess who armed and trained these TERRORISTS to commit this campaign of TERRORISM? Yes, US taxpayer, your friendly neighborhood US gov't!

 

Zbigniew Brzinski (Carter's NSA) declared that the Soviets were led into an "Afghan trap" and they wanted them to "experience their own Vietnam." Well, that sure came to bite you back in the ass, didn't it with that whole 911 thing?

 

So, here we have the top US ally, Saudi Arabia, funneling money to these ISIS elements, the US directly admitting aid for the "rebels" in Syria who became part of ISIS, and then all these Iraqi weapons mysteriously disappearing under the US occupation and puppet regime going to ISIS. Hmmm... co-inky-dink? Funny, how the US gov't couldn't get support from their public for a Syrian war but now, the lemmings just fall in line. They sure did figure out how to manipulate them! And notice the great social media campaign and Hollywood-esque drama of the online video horror movie campaign they unleash? All wrapped up in a sexy brand called "ISIS"!!!!

 

How many times does history have to repeat itself for 'Mericans to get it?


In Topic: Watch PBS's Frontline Putin's Way, and see how it mirrors 9/11

All I really feel like saying on this issue is this. If 9/11 was some grand conspiracy in the fashion people claim it is it would have taken thousands of people to pull off. The same way some of the greatest magic tricks/illusions have one or two magicians as the face of the trick and then a team of assistants helping behind the scenes.

Now, had thousands, or hell even hundreds of people been in on something that big one of them would have talked by now. Someone would have taken pictures of the preparation or provided some other proof beyond "well that looked like a controlled demolition to me."

Now if you want to talk about how the tragedy was exploited to start a war Bush already wanted anyway, then I'm listening.

I'm taking it you aren't familiar with the CIA tactic of compartmentalization? It happens all the time. Companies do this too to deny culpability and to keep each participant ignorant of what the big picture is. This has always been the MO of the US government when they have committed terrorist covert ops in the rest of the world. Any surprise that these tactics would then be turned on a naive population that never objected to it when dispensed on others? 


In Topic: What is a terrorist?

24 February 2015 - 10:16 PM

There are definitions of terrorism aplenty on US government websites. They are generally accurate in that it occurs against civilian populations to attempt to intimidate and coerce policy changes. 

 

By it's own definitions, much of the US' actions around the world would be considered terrorism.
