For five hundred years Capitalism has ridden roughshod across the planet, plundering and enslaving entire continents, exterminating entire cultures
and peoples’,all in the pursuit of power, domination & ultimatley profit.
It has done this until the 20th century with virtual impunity by use of overwhelming military power and control of international trade, itself
protected by overwhelming military force.
But following the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, capitalist corporations (the real world goverments) were stripped of their justification for
continuing the pillage of the planet. They needed a new enemy behind which to could continue their operations, thus under the guise of fighting the
‘war on terror’, new wars of conquest, new wars of acquisition were undertaken. However, these wars had to be conducted largely without the
support of the domestic populations.
As was portrayed in the BBC documentary 'The Power Of Nightmares', a new climate of fear had to be engineered to justify imperialist wars of
conquest. Above all what was really needed were actual deeds with corpses and culprits.The creation of crises, the creation of an enemy:
History is littered with lies invented to justify wars, including the Tonkin Gulf Incident which led to the war in Vietnam, or the mythical Soviet MiG
jets allegedly supplied to the Sandinistas in Nicaragua as well as the non-existent WMDs of Saddam Hussein’s Iraq.
Behind the rhetoric lies the real reason for the creation of the ‘terrorist threat’, the mundane world of economics, for ultimately it all comes
down to power & money.
Herman Goering (Hitlers right hand man) said at the Nuremberg trials(Nazi Germany):
“Of course the people don't want war. .......Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All
you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater
George W Bush echoing these words said: "You are either with us or you are with the terrorists"
Henry Kissinger said “I can think of no faster way to unite the American people behind George W. Bush than a terrorist attack..."
Just as Bush openly states "A war without end is required"
Figures of fifty years are bandied about just in case we don’t get the message.
Creating fear, allows the fearmongers/scaremongers the ability to control the people. The public themselves welcome draconian laws, welcome the arrest
of their neighbours, the torture of their fellow citizens all in the hope that this will keep them 'safe'.Manufacturing fake terror alerts,
manufacturing fear....to keep the people on their toes, the bombs dropping & the rich richer

The Pentagon opens a new department to make up & plant propaganda and misleading stories in the international media.
US Air marshalls report that they are being forced to continously report innocent passengers as suspicous in order to make the terror threat seem ever
present. Every flight has to have a terrorist on it:
Politics drives decision to raise alert level, not facts
In an effort to justify funding the US Justice Department's major statistics on terrorism cases are highly inaccurate, federal prosecutors routinely
count cases involving drug trafficking, marriage fraud and other unrelated crimes as part of anti-terrorism efforts.
