This post is more of a question of your opinions rather than an informative piece.

1) Most of us know 9/11 was an inside job.. Or do some of you still believe it truly happened how the media described it?

2) What are an extremist's groups end goals? Do you believe it is only down to power and a distorted view of religion? Or do you think there's a possibility that this is their way of fighting the corrupt system, that we here, are all aware of?

3) The plan and profits of war - who funds it? Who profits from it?

4) To what extent does western media lie? Do any of us truly know what is happening in these countries?

5) Why are people not more outraged, that innocent people and children in countries all over the world are living in the present and aftermath of war? How can people be so devastated when attacks happen (like 9/11 and the Manchester bombings) but not blink an eye to the real terror of constant combat and attacks, like the 7423 bombings in Afghanistan of the year 2019, for example. One life isn't worth more than another, however, surely the country with more people dying should be the highest concern to us all.

6) And a serious question which the obvious answer may just be 'impossible,' but do you think there is any way humanity can ever live in peace and harmony and if so what is it going to take for us to get there?

The so called " War On Terror " is a Fabrication . Those Who Terrorize are themselves Tools of the Globalists .

1 )A lot of people are more comfortable believing the MSM story than facing the possible ugly truth. They'd rather let sleeping dogs lie so they can stay in their happy little bubble.

2) Extremists aren't fighting corruption; their fighting to have everything the way they want it to be.

3) The political machine funds and profits greatly from war.

4) Western media lies 100%. Sometimes by omission, sometimes by direct obfuscation of the facts.

5) If it doesn't effect your neighborhood and lifestyle, it's hard for the majority to get up the juice to actually do anything.

6) Humanity will never, ever live in piece. You have two opposing view points and pig-headed people insisting they're right and you're wrong. Politicians have always created and
used this division to keep the serfs fighting amongst themselves so they never figure out the root cause of the problem and unite to overthrow it.

Because we're selfish and ignorant. Not that other countries are better.

Far more damage has been done in afghanistan and iraq than 9/11.

And they are considered collateral damage, while the victims of 9/11 are considered terrorism victims.

Sad but true answers my friend. Do you think it's worth trying to wake others up to what us few see? Sometimes I feel it's like fighting a losing battle.

But at the same time I can't ignore the injustice.

Very true statement and also so heartbreaking that the majority choose to look the other way resulting in the horrors of this world.

Do you think they are willingly being used as tools, so essentially working for the globalists, or do you think there's a deeper agenda?

1) Most of us know 9/11 was an inside job.. Or do some of you still believe it truly happened how the media described it?


I believe we don't truly have enough information to do anything more than speculate. Hence the situation 20 years later. We may never find out the truth behind 9/11 that said I always questioned the military reaction to the event or the lack of.




2) What are an extremist's groups end goals? Do you believe it is only down to power and a distorted view of religion? Or do you think there's a possibility that this is their way of fighting the corrupt system, that we here, are all aware of?


That's the power of doctrine and 'brainwashing' as we call it. Every side thinks they're right and justified in the actions they take, even if it goes against the teachings of whatever religion they practice because they all teach that life is sacred. The Quran has plenty of passages regarding such including things we tend to kill on sight like vermin or pests. Making enemies is easier than making friends and scapegoats make for good motivation. It can be construed that fighting the great satan is some group's way of fighting corruption that said my personal opinion is that any religiously fanatic group are corrupt themselves and any aggressive actions they take will inevitably corrupt more with their actions. I'd include the west's illegal ME wars in that category too. It could be said it's a perspective thing.




3) The plan and profits of war - who funds it? Who profits from it?


Everybody and nobody. It's profit from misery and paranoia... We all lose with that type of projection. That said war fuels industries and 99% of the people working in said industries are decent hard working people, they're not sailing the war warships nor shooting the armaments. The true winners are probably stockholders of companies directly linked with militaries or the companies that operate in war zones and military theatres... Those people aren't involved with anything other than the profit.




4) To what extent does western media lie? Do any of us truly know what is happening in these countries?


Depends on the story, it's not really a lie if it's a misinformed news piece... It's just sloppy journalism. As for hit piece journalism we're all accountable, we're the ones who click and read and most companies just want the revenue. In short they technically lie all the time, to what extent and how much it's a controlled narrative I'm not 100% sure, I tend to read for facts and not entertainment. That said there's plenty of cases of willful ignorance and purposefully pushing narratives or totally ignoring others.




5) Why are people not more outraged, that innocent people and children in countries all over the world are living in the present and aftermath of war? How can people be so devastated when attacks happen (like 9/11 and the Manchester bombings) but not blink an eye to the real terror of constant combat and attacks, like the 7423 bombings in Afghanistan of the year 2019, for example. One life isn't worth more than another, however, surely the country with more people dying should be the highest concern to us all


Because to many one life IS worth more than another. Seems to me that group think often wins, why should you care about millions dead in the middle East if nobody else in the group's you identify with do? MSM doesn't help either, hell they're the ones who made people crap themselves if an Arab got on their bus never mind the fear of unattended packages or luggage.




6) And a serious question which the obvious answer may just be 'impossible,' but do you think there is any way humanity can ever live in peace and harmony and if so what is it going to take for us to get there?



Yes.

We're really not far from the possibility of hivemind capabilities now the real question is if we're all linked together via technology (think cyborgs) where does one consciousness end and another begin? Will we even be human?

AI could assist us or it could rule us, we're going to make that leap to augmented humans sooner than we think. It will destroy us or save us. In short we'd be in a position to know that hurting another being is as bad as self harming, maybe even feel the damage we inflict.

1) Yes, an inside job with nuclear devices. IMO that makes the term the Global War Of Terror.

2) Mossad, CIA, thus Tel Aviv and Washington. The goal is perpetual wars of aggression. So far, mission accomplished.

3) The Military Industrial Complex profits from it, as Ike warned about in 1961.

4) As others have mentioned, western media lies all the time. Operation Mockingbird was very successful. Udo Ulfkotte of Germany spelled that out in his book, but died shortly thereafter.

5) People are too brainwashed and gullible to be outraged. As Casey of the CIA noted in 1981, "when everything the American people believe is false, we will know the successes of our misinformation efforts.

6) No. War and violence are part of the human condition, and some people know how to play that into profits and agendas.

Inside, outside, behind the scenes, backroom deals, a hell no I don't think it was as cut and dry as the official narrative.

2) What are an extremist's groups end goals? Do you believe it is only down to power and a distorted view of religion? Or do you think there's a possibility that this is their way of fighting the corrupt system, that we here, are all aware of?

If you're asking about people in the Middle East, I would lean towards religion. First, I want to be clear, I am not trying to broad brush all Middle Easterners as like minded. That would be foolish. I do however think their powers that be, and many among the populace, lean more towards theocracy and outdated thinking. And a percentage will spare no time using their religion to justify horrible atrocities (Even outside the Middle East, i.e. 'honor killings').

3) The plan and profits of war - who funds it? Who profits from it?

Money lenders. The plan? To take all they can get.

4) To what extent does western media lie? Do any of us truly know what is happening in these countries?

Me, personally? No, I don't know, because I've never been to most of them, and don't have connections in any of them. Does the media lie, twist facts, down right make movie like scenes to fake news? Yes. Maybe not every time, all the time, but the fact remains that they've done it before. Why wouldn't they do it again?

5) Why are people not more outraged, that innocent people and children in countries all over the world are living in the present and aftermath of war? How can people be so devastated when attacks happen (like 9/11 and the Manchester bombings) but not blink an eye to the real terror of constant combat and attacks, like the 7423 bombings in Afghanistan of the year 2019, for example. One life isn't worth more than another, however, surely the country with more people dying should be the highest concern to us all.

I really don't know. I'm just a guy doing his best to take care of me and my own at the moment. That's really all I can do right now. Other than waste time on the internet, here and there.

6) And a serious question which the obvious answer may just be 'impossible,' but do you think there is any way humanity can ever live in peace and harmony and if so what is it going to take for us to get there?

Yes, more or less, but also, a resounding no. What it would take to get there is dark territory to think about. What it would mean when we got there? Well, some people would still want more. No Star Trek esque future any time soon.

Unless a Q steps in.

Who profits?

Probably the Chinese since we've been protecting their lithium mines for 20 years.

Now they own Baghram air base and all of out left over hardware.

Not to mentions the trillions in lithium that they will use Afghan labor to exploit.

This has been a 20 year Chinese mining exploratory mission.

As a person who has had expertise in studying the different sects of Islam as well as Islamic extremism, did you find the epithet "Global War on Terror" a bit of a hypocrisy because Hezbollah and all Palestinian militant groups (e.g. Hamas, Popular Front for Liberation of Palestine) weren't targeted as part of the Global War on Terror despite Hezbollah sharing al-Qaeda's call for Israel to be destroyed? Although Iran accuses the US and Israel of supporting terrorists by having fomented Sunni extremism in Syria during that country's ongoing civil war, it is a patron of the very Hezbollah that the State Department classifies as a Foreign Terrorist Organization, yet the mullahs in Tehran know that Osama bin Laden and his ilk were definitely wrong to call Shi'a Muslims heretics, which is why the fight against ISIS became an unexpected point of de facto cooperation between the US and Iran.
