How is it that a 'discussion'(?) of this type ignores the reality of imperial warmaking in foreign lands... HOW DOES THE IDEA ESCAPE NOTICE that that there are CORPORATE interests, FOREIGN to the Middle East, that are at play here. How is it that we can IGNORE the idea of FALSE-FLAG events / provocations (a proven technique) peppered throughout the history of our relationship with the US's very bestus and most 'special' ally in the region. Several of those false flag events levelled by them against British (then American) 'interests' / assets are proven and have been properly credited already.
Yet none dare call it (gasp) CONSPIRACY!!!!
If you accept the idea that a 'terrorist' group will commit mayhem and deadly violence to achieve a political end, you must also admit that there
exists the possibility a third-party will do violence masked to APPEAR as said 'terrorist' group-- again, to achieve a political end. (eg: to keep
Christianity and Islam at war in perpetuity.)
The rational, objective observer is forced to ask: Cui Bene? (who gains?)
