war on an emotion named terror

Gore Vidal's America

"America has done wicked things in the past to other countries but never on such a scale and never in such an existentialist way. It's as though we are evil. We strike first. We'll destroy you. This is an eternal war against terrorism. It's like a war against dandruff. There's no such thing as a war against terrorism. It's idiotic. These are slogans. These are lies. It's advertising, which is the only art form we ever invented and developed." - Gore Vidal

Can There Be a Nonviolent Response to Terrorism?

"A terrorist who serves American interests is a freedom fighter; a freedom fighter who doesn't is a terrorist." - Rick Rozoff

The word terrorist was coined during the French Revolution to describe "an adherent or supporter of the Jacobins, who advocated and practiced methods of partisan repression and bloodshed in the propagation of the principles of democracy and equality."

"The really tricky part of creating a mythical terrorist monster out of an incomplete truth is laying-out the facts behind your mythical story without revealing the whole truth about your part in its creation. Bin Laden may not even have known that he was playing a part in a deceitful CIA global drama until after the fact." - Peter Chamberlin

"The actual danger to the population posed by insurgent operations, notably terrorist tactics, is often far lower than the perceived danger." - Counterinsurgency Operations manual prepared under the direction of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, October 5, 2009


"If you read history, you will see that every national movement is considered
a delusion by those who are part of the establishment and have the power."

Stephen Downs - Inventing Terrorists: Preemptive Prosecution

America Is Running the World’s Largest Terrorist Operation

John Pilger: "There Is No War On Terror. There Is A War OF Terror."

"War is the most ancient method for keeping one's people scared, unquestioning and obedient, and it is highly profitable for people who make weapons. It was a historically brilliant act for George Walker Bush to declare a global war that he and his successors can extend for as long as bombings and kidnapings exist." - David Meadow

Terrorism is the chosen method to get the population to comply with security measures. When terrorists attack there is no easily identifiable enemy, no sovereign state to bombard or invade, no territory to conquer, no easily identifiable specific force to overwhelm and no obvious strategic objective.

A comparative absence of terrorism supports the conclusion that the terrorist threat has been grossly exaggerated.

Terrorists have an incentive to exaggerate their strength to frighten their opponents and governments play it safe by exaggerating the terrorist threat.

And the disaster capitalists reap windfall profits.

Globally terrorism is being used as an instrument of social change to get sovereign peoples to hand over their sovereignty to a transnational criminal elite and the MICE Board of Directors.

To facilitate corporate command of the global economy the transnational elite has US troops stationed in Germany, Japan, Korea, the Philippines, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Kuwait, what was once known as Yugoslavia, Columbia and many others to protect 'vital interests'.

The war on terror is not a war on terror. It is a war waged against any group that is not willing to grant the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank sovereignty.

International bankers have succeeded in conquering the world.

The corporate revolution that has swept the world, making a few individuals exceedingly rich while impoverishing the rest, has overextended itself and it is going to collapse.

1972 Olympics

Black September a shadowy group of fanatics primes the "Threat of Islam."

Western Imperialists needed those who practice Islam to be seen as the threat that must be contained even though those that practice the two main branches of Islam, Sunni and Shite, are very diverse and range all the way from the mysticism of Sufism to the militarism of Wahhabism.

By a large margin, Americans have been conditioned to believe, even without supporting evidence, that any act of terrorism has "Islamic" origins and "Islamic" perpetrators.

The corporate media image of Usamah bin Mohammad bin Laden and Saddam Hussein lined up with corporate media images of the Islamic "terrorist" leaders Yasser Arafat and Ayatollah Khomeini.

September 1980 Iraq invades Iran.

Iraq (Sunni) versus Iran (Shite) war lasts until August 1988.

1993 World Trade Center bombing

The law enforcement agencies of the federal government need a terrorist organization, rather than individuals, to take the broad legal actions they desire so they created the fictious al-Qa`ida.

Lone Wolf Terrorists Are Exceedingly Rare

"If we analyze what happened on September 11, 2001, we can arrive at the following conclusions:

1. The organizers of those attacks were the political and business circles interested in destabilizing the current world order and who had the means necessary to finance the operation.

2. Only secret services and their current chiefs – or those retired but still having influence inside the state organizations – have the ability to plan, organize and conduct an operation of such magnitude.

3. Usamah bin Mohammad bin Laden and "al-Qa`ida" cannot be the organizers nor the performers of the September 11 attacks. They do not have the necessary organization, resources or leaders. Thus, a team of professionals had to be created and the Arab kamikazes are just extras to mask the operation.

The September 11 operation modified the course of events in the world in the direction chosen by transnational mafias and international oligarchs; that is, those who hope to control the planet's natural resources, the world information network and the financial flows." - General Leonid Ivashov

Government Surveillance: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

Why John Oliver’s Interview With Edward Snowden Is So Vital

"The real enemy in the global war on terror is not the "axis of evil"(North Korea, Iran and Iraq) but the "axis of allies." Today, the countries most likely to produce another 911 are not Iran, much less North Korea, but countries long regarded as (after Israel) America's most reliable allies in the greater Middle East. Step forward, Saudi Arabia (almost certainly still the biggest source of funding for radical Islamists) and Pakistan (definitely their one-stop shop for nuclear weaponry)." - Niall FergusonWe have been told endlessly that the "front line" in the "war on terror" is in Iraq or Afghanistan.

Iraq/Afghanistan/Libya/Syria/Iran are not the "front line" in the "war on terror", Iraq/Afghanistan/Libya/Syria/Iran is the training ground for future terrorists and al-Qa`ida!

Terrorist activities will cease to happen only when the reason for committing a terrorist act ceases to exist.

When every human and every group of humans is treated humanely by every government then there will be no more terrorist acts.

"Most suicide bombers are walk-in volunteers. Very few are criminals and very few of the suicide bombers are actually longtime members of a terrorist group. For most suicide bombers, their first experience with extreme physical violence is their very own suicide bomb attack.

The reality is that overwhelmingly suicide bomb attacks are not driven by religion as much as they are by a clear strategic objective: to compel modern states to withdraw military forces from the territory that the terrorists view as their homeland.

From Lebanon to Sri Lanka to Chechnya to Kashmir to the West Bank, every major suicide bombing campaign - over 95 percent of all the incidents - has had as its central objective to compel a state to withdraw." - Robert Pape

"Terrorists use the tools they do because they are weak and have no others. Americans need to remember that we are the 800-pound gorilla: We have choices, but we need to take care when we throw our weight around." - Francis Fukuyama

"Come and see our overflowing morgues and find our little ones for us ... You may find them in this corner or the other, a little hand poking out, pointing out at you... Come and search for them in the rubble of your "surgical" air raids, you may find a little leg or a little head ... pleading for your attention. Come and see them amassed in the garbage dumps, scavenging morsels of food... Come and see, come... You will never control Iraq, not in six years, not in ten years, not in 20 years.You have brought upon yourself the hate and the curse of all Iraqis." - Layla Anwar

"We assess that the Iraq jihad is shaping a new generation of terrorist leaders and operatives; perceived jihadist success there would inspire more fighters to continue the struggle elsewhere. The Iraq conflict has become the cause celebre for jihadists, breeding a deep resentment of US involvement in the Muslim world and cultivating supporters for the global jihadist movement. Should jihadists leaving Iraq perceive themselves, and be perceived, to have failed, we judge fewer fighters will be inspired to carry on the fight." - National Intelligence Council

"Several weeks ago I heard a senior high-ranking Pakistani Police Officer lead a presentation about US drone attacks on the remote tribal areas of his country. He explained the cultural honor codes of the Pashtun tribes and how those traditions going back thousands of years made them honor bound to seek revenge for the death or injury to tribal members or those granted hospitality and asylum in their homes. He told us that for every person killed or seriously injured by drone attacks, between three and ten tribal members were committed to lifetimes of retaliation and revenge. We continue to be so blinded by the disease of American exceptionalism that we fail to think about how much of the rest of the world views us." - Steve Clemens

In an effort to undermine the United Soviet Socialist Republic's occupation of Afghanistan, the US supported, armed and taught the use of terrorist tactics to Usamah bin Mohammad bin Laden and his al-Qa`ida mujahideen brethren. Afghanistan was al-Qa`ida's first training ground. Iraq became the second. Libya the third. And don't forget to throw in Syria, Somalia and Yemen as well as other parts of Africa.

In Liberia, a female head of a household was referred to the American resettlement program by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees as a person particularly vulnerable to attack. Insurgents had come to her home, killed her father, beat and gang raped her. A Sierra Leonean woman's house was attacked by terrorists. The Department of Homeland Security declared both women provided "material support" - to the insurgents.

Yusuf Islam was denied entry into America by the Department of Homeland Security for providing "material support" to the terrorists.

"It is also time that the media played a more responsible role in reflecting the commonalities between the two realities of Islam and the West. The media still chooses to play on fears of the unknown, using extremists as a representation of a religion, when the more pure and faithful image is bypassed." - Yusuf Islam, January 2006

"Transnational elite thinks it has the right to destabilize and dominate the entire globe. Can any clear-thinking person still believe that the US is a peace-loving nation?"- Chris Apostal

"This sense of religious mission, this belief that since the US has been blessed with prosperity and democracy, we have, not just the right, but perhaps even the God-given obligation to go to other countries and share the benefits of all we have with them, particularly to countries that may not even be advanced enough to realize how much they want our political system." - Stephen Kinzer

risk of terrorism

statistical competency

45,000 Americans died in car accidents in 2005.

"Reading the statistics on the deaths and maiming due to automobile accidents made me really think about security. Maybe we need to realize where the true dangers lie. Is it possible to totally protect ourselves from terrorism, and should we live in fear because of our inability to do so? If one were to consider the possibility of being killed or injured in a terrorism attack versus what could possibly happen when we get into an automobile, perhaps our fears would diminish." - Bobby Fraker

"Because the news media is savvy about, and complicit in, our fears and fascinations, we are fed an endless supply of death news that has little to do with how people actually die." - Meghan Daum

Studies of statistical competency show that corporate media systematically exaggerates the probability of vivid, high-profile threats such as violent homicides, sexual crimes and terrorist attacks while downplaying the probability of being involved in a fatal highway accident.

2004 Following ratios compiled using data from National Safety Council Estimates, a report based on data from The National Center for Health Statistics and the US Census Bureau. (In addition, 2003 mortality data from the Center for Disease Control was used.) You are :

-- 17,600 times more likely to die from heart disease than from a terrorist attack

-- 12,571 times more likely to die from cancer than from a terrorist attack

-- 11,000 times more likely to die in an airplane accident than from a terrorist plot involving an airplane

-- 1048 times more likely to die from a car accident than from a terrorist attack

-- 404 times more likely to die in a fall than from a terrorist attack

-- 87 times more likely to drown than die in a terrorist attack

-- 13 times more likely to die in a railway accident than from a terrorist attack

-- 12 times more likely to die from accidental suffocation in bed than from a terrorist attack

-- 9 times more likely to choke to death on your own vomit than die in a terrorist attack

-- 8 times more likely to be killed by a police officer than by a terrorist

-- 8 times more likely to die from accidental electrocution than from a terrorist attack

-- 6 times more likely to die from hot weather than from a terrorist attack

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
