And you can take it further.
Much of ISIS is a fiction. It just isn't happening. A significant portion of the rest is the result of Western intelligence. A small portion is homegrown and labelled ISIS, ISIL, IS, Daesh, or whatever they're calling it this week.
You know there's something fishy when no one can settle on a name.
Which Defense Contractors Win After French Attacks?
Now, with the attacks in Paris, defense contractors are gearing up for another round of profit.
Over the last five years the biggest makers of military hardware - Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT), General Dynamics (NYSE:GD), Northrup Grumman (NYSE:NOC) and Boeing (NYSE:BA) - have all scored gains that greatly exceeded that of the S&P 500.
Some of the biggest have gone to Northrup Grumman, which recently won an $80 billion contract for bombers that Boeing and Lockheed Martin are protesting. Deliveries start in 2025.
But the real news has been the move of these giant defense contractors into cyber-security, where they have been butting heads with cyber experts like L-3 (NYSE:LLL), Harris (NYSE:HRS) and Raytheon (NYSE:RTN), with great success. Both General Dynamics and Lockheed Martin are expected to be bidding for the government's latest cyber-command contract, while gains in the big hardware makers have mainly exceeded those in the electronics specialists over the last five years.

No, just friggin no!!! Not every friggin thing is directed by some hidden secret evil power.
Evil is evil, it needs no excuses and it helps nobody to make excuses for it.
I really wish I could join you in sticking my fingers in my ears and yelling "lalalalalala." However, soficrow makes valid points about who benefits.
When your personal rights and freedoms continue to diminish all in the name of National Security to fight "terrorism" remember you aren't willing to question things and would rather keep those fingers firmly planted in your ears.
The truth of the matter is our government (and shadow government) does not have a stellar record when it comes to creating false flags to push agendas and narratives. These agendas and narratives have ALWAYS led to more money and power for them (the ruling elite).
George Orwell on Totalitarianism:
“A society living by and for continuous warfare in which the ruling caste have ceased to have any real function but succeed in clinging to power through force and fraud.”
