Only one word sprang to mind when I heard about the bombings that claimed the lives of dozens of Londoners today — convenient.
Is there anything convenient in death, or in thousands of lives destroyed by catastrophe? No — and words cannot express the sorrow I feel for the men and women changed by today’s events. But governments with skeletons in their closets have a great deal to gain from a national tragedy bolstered by “terrorism.”
As I sit in my office today, I hear the whispers of co-workers now utterly convinced the War on Terror must continue. The Bush doctrine is now justified in the minds of millions, and petty grievances such as the Downing Street Minutes, the President’s flagging support, and Karl Rove’s treasonous outing of CIA agent Valerie Plame are unimportant. Another faceless terrorist organization is out to kill us.
Sound familiar? It should — the same emotional ploy was used to great effect on Americans in the wake of September 11. Question nothing, particularly that nagging feeling in the back of your head. Justice delayed is justice denied.
Unlike four years ago, however, I refuse to accept the attack on London was anything less than a false-flag operation designed to again enrage the Western world against the Middle East. There is no reason for “terrorist” groups to attack England; as recently as this week the Ministry of Defense announced that plans were being drafted that would pull British armed forces from Iraq and Afghanistan. With the British throwing in the towel, the only motivation to stay could come from an attack that compels its forces to continue fighting “global terrorism.”
Think about it. The attack only benefits those desperate to maintain a foothold in the Middle East without further eroding public opinion. Will Parliament shrug their shoulders and push their soldiers into longer tours of duty because of this? It’s too early to tell, but if that happens, insurgents lose more than they could ever possibly gain by destroying part of the Underground.
Brian Kilmeade of Fox News agrees, claiming the sabotage “works to … [the] Western world’s advantage, for people to experience something like this together.” It doesn’t just make terrorism an American problem, it makes it a worldwide problem. The Number One problem.
No longer do we need to concern ourselves with two world leaders — leaders who have spawned more worldwide terrorism than all fanatical religious organizations combines — going unquestioned in their lies that started a war. We can cast off our sluggish economies, lack of freedoms, and pitiful descent into draconian law because terror is on the rise.
It’s like sitting in front of a television and watching the World Trade Center collapse all over again.
Everything is the same, right down to the previously unheard of Islamic group (The Secret Organization of al-Qaida in Europe? Are you kidding me?) taking credit — even though the translation falls apart under scrutiny and the Q’uran is improperly cited. You’d think the perpetrators could at least come up with a clever new booga-booga name to grab headlines. The arrogance is startling.
The ever-present Israeli connection, a staple among false flag operations, is not, though. Before today’s attack, the Israeli Embassy in London was notified an attack was forthcoming. As a result, former Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu remained in his hotel room rather than head towards a nearby hotel where he was to address an economic summit.
The embassy denies it had any prior knowledge, of course. If Netanyahu was not warned, however, how did he know to stay in his room? How did he know the danger was so severe that he dare not venture out of the hotel?
The story changed multiple times. Moments later Netanyahu stated that British police had warned the Israelis (but not the rest of the city?) of a pending attack. Scotland Yard denies this; Israel’s reply was to say Netanyahu received his warning after the first blast. How? It was reported as a power surge in the media. What is being hidden here? And why isn’t there an investigation into these obvious discrepancies? It’s enough to make your head spin and your eyes cross.
Regardless, I am making an appeal to Britons who are understandably wracked with grief at the moment — don’t buy into the hatred the way we Americans did. Don’t ignore the obvious evidence that this whole affair was orchestrated by your own government. Most important, don’t let the deaths of the few, however tragic, plunge your nation into another fit of war and civic clampdowns.
Toying with your emotions is expected. See the attack on your home for what it really is — a distraction that will keep your money, resources and troops mired in ceaseless battle for an ideology that betrays your democratic and civilized tenets.
Honor your dead with tears, not a cry for war or praise for a disgraced leader.
