… what you are getting at here is well explored in the book Disaster Capitalism by Naomi Klein
Thanks for the Disaster Capitalism reference, it is a must read for every American. I agree with Naomi's facts but my conclusions are more line with
Ron Paul, actual I gave Dr Paul my copy back in 2008. In any case, the book revealed to me a different side of the conspiracy, one I had not known
about prior. What you have called the "selling popcorn" on-the-side while we blow stuff up, sell weapons, steal oil, privatized, and generally exploit
every disasters for the benefit of our crony capitalist friends.
The PROBLEM some people have with Conspiracy Theories about some ‘Power That Be’ controlling everything is that stuff is just so messy. How
could anyone predict EXACTLY what is going to happen when the US invades Afghanistan under the premise that there are almost 50 al Qaeda members there
when there are more than that in Jupiter Florida?
Very good point.
Actually, if my memory serves, the CIA reported back to congress (when asked) that there were only about 300 Al Qaeda world-wide before the Afghan
invasion, but your point is well taken. I remember thinking why not just "take out" those 300 men and be done with it? Think of the lives and
treasure we would have saved (or not wasted). Of course, we could have done that, but our goal was never to take them out, quit the contrary. I now
see, THE PLAN was to do everything in our power to make this nonexistent enemy look bigger than it real was until we could to make their forces
increase and multiply (torture is a means to this end).
At first, I just didn't get it.
I watched movie "Taxi to the Dark Side" and thought, damn we did some stupid crap if we really wanted to defeat this enemy--how could we be that
stupid I keep asking myself long after seeing that movie, it just didn't make any sense to me that we could be that dumb. Then in the documentary
series "The Power of Nightmares" producer Adam Curtis tells the story of Islamism, or the desire to establish Islam as an unbreakable political
framework, as half a century of mostly failed, short-lived revolutions and spectacular but politically ineffective terrorism.
“Curtis points out that al-Qaida did not even have a name until early 2001, when the American government decided to prosecute Bin Laden in
his absence and had to use anti-Mafia laws that required the existence of a named criminal organisation." --Andy Beckett for The Guardian, October 15,
Then I learn the name that the CIA came up with was never self applied. Actually, prior to this there really was no such thing as Al Queda in reality,
it was just a made of name for a contrived phantasm. This word Al Queda literally means "the base" and was used by the CIA to refer to their database
from Operation Cyclone. However, this term for "base" meant the "toilet seat" in Arabic slang. The CIA clerk who labeled the file knew Arabic, but he
clearly did not know the vernacular.
"Qa'ada" is the infinitive of the verb "to sit". "Ma-Qa'ad" is a chair. "Al-Qaeda" is the base or fundament of something. "Ana raicha Al Qaeda"
is colloquial for "I'm going to the toilet". A very common and widespread use of the word "Al-Qaeda" in different Arab countries in the public
language is for the toilet bowl. This name comes from the Arabic verb "Qa'ada" which mean "to sit", pertinently, on the toilet bowl. Indeed, the potty
used by small children is called "Ma Qa'adia" or "Little Qaeda".
Clearly, those who named the group did not know that by using this name for the organization, they risked becoming the laughing stock of everybody who
speaks the Arabic "public" language. Would you name revolutionary group the Toilet Bowl? I would not. LOL
The bottom line here is this: the war against "Al-Qaeda" was completely invented. After 9/11 there was a demand to know who was responsible, and
someone in the CIA grabbed their “datebase” file and read off the label, at that moment the glorious International Islamic Terror Group was born.
Prior to that, no one had ever heard the name before, and now you know why. Gradually, I began to understand this was not incompetence as I first
thought, but an actual strategy. What help me to this realization was reading Naomi’s book. The more info I gathered the more a picture of Disaster
Capitalism was starting to take form in my mind with regard to the so-called “war on terror.” This was our meal ticket for the next 50 years or
more, and a way to rule the world.
The point is that a true War Profiteer doesn't need to plan anything. All they need to do is get one group angry at another
It really is that simple.
We learned how to run a world empire from the British, but when it comes to the illuminati “order out of chaos” we really put our American
ingenuity to work and ramped up that mantra of wanton destruction and exploitation to a farthywell.
