Coming to terms with the war on terror and 9/11


story.malaysiasun.com

Politics has corrupted our interpretation of history; the media too.

But by forcing one view over the other, the two have succeeded in manipulating an historical event of earth-shattering magnitude, such as 9/11, so that their explanation of what happened on that ominous day seven years ago becomes the only reality; it then becomes dogma.

No matter which side of the fence you are on with regards to who is responsible for 9/11, it seems the world is realising that the US War On terror is much more than the attack on that fateful day.

This lethal combination of politics and media has flummoxed our appreciation of what had really happened on 9/11 and why. Yes there are still dissenting voices, both in the United States and abroad, that refuse to accept the official account of what happened on that tragic day. Our understanding of Al-Qaeda remains subject to speculation, intrigue and is influenced by conspiracy theories.

Al-Qaeda or Al-CIAda, the US has made the most of a bad situation for thier own goals.

The same can be said of Iraq; a country that had nothing to do with 9/11, never attacked America and was ruled by a regime which in the past had done business with Washington. Politics and media colluded to present that country as a present and immediate menace to world peace. Since its invasion by the United States and Britain, Iraq became a magnet for Al-Qaeda and is now heavily infiltrated by Tehran. Iraq today is in a mess and as the “game” unwinds, its future is as ambiguous as it was on the eve of its illegal invasion.

NOW there is an Al-Qaeda pressence. The "Build it and they will come" philosphy is alive and well. Do the ends justify the means?


Still we hear few dissenting voices because the war on terror has created an atmosphere of terror where nonconformists are hunted down, intimidated, accused and eventually silenced.

So now who has become the terrorist? Terror is not only through blowing stuff up, but through instilling fear. The traditional terrorists may be scary, but what the Bush administration has done has scared many more people than all terrorist organisations put together.

I guess I should clarify why I posted this. It may not be HUGE news for many, especially within the realms of ATS and similar sites, but to see such reports in the MSM is a great breakthrough in acknowledgement by the rest of the world that there is much more to the War On Terror than we have previously been instructed to belive.

The closing paragraph of the story puts it perfectly

But no matter how politicians and media spinners have written history, there will always be those who will ask the same questions: What really happened on 9/11 and who was behind it? There will be those who will nag and ask again how the war in terror is connected to 9/11. And then there will always be that haunting question: What did all those hundrds of thousand of people in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and elsewhere die for?
