False Flags, Real Deaths, Big Mistakes
Not all of the people who carried out 9/11 and other false flag attacks are hit men who did it for the money. And not all of the people who ordered those attacks did so for the oil and defense industry profits that were justified by 9/11 (what Steven Jones calls "the 9/11 Wars" - the war against the
Some of the people who ordered or carried out the attacks are "true believers" -- ideologues, who actually believed that the ends justify the means. These are admittedly some very mistaken and very dangerous people. But unless we address their motivations, we will be unable to convince the people who are now covering up 9/11 and other false flag attacks from revealing the truth. In other words, we need to be able to address and rebut the faulty beliefs of the ideologues who are covering up the crime of the century.
How could anyone believe that 3,000 innocent murders on 9/11 were justified? I think the answers are a mixture of one or all of the following for each of the people involved (I'll use short-hand nicknames for each belief): "protecting
I will briefly describe each of these beliefs, and then show why they are incorrect and detrimental to
The neocons calling the shots on
Oil is the lifeblood of the military machine of every nation. So the neocons decided to create a pretext to secure Middle Eastern oil (Iraq, Iran, etc.) in order to ensure America's access to oil and deny China access if needed. Even Henry Kissinger has hinted at this (search this for further info).
However, if we really wanted to protect ourselves from the growing Chinese tiger, it might be a lot smarter to start with more basic defensive strategies like not giving military secrets to the Chinese. In addition, I would argue that saving
(2) Protecting Israel
Many of the highest-level officials within the Bush administration are dual citizens of both Israel and the U.S.A. Some of them were previously high-level advisors to the government of Israel, who proposed the use of force for regime change and instability in the Middle East. Many of these officials then wrote a position paper as part of the influential American think-tank PNAC, before joining as key players in the Bush administration, saying a "new pearl harbor" was needed to allow their plans to be implemented. 9/11 was the "New Pearl Harbor" which allowed this proposal to be implemented.
As an interesting example of the confluence of these different areas, the executive director of the 9/11 Commission, who vigorously steered the investigation away from the truth, and who is a key neocon military and foreign affairs player, has said that the Iraq war was waged in an attempt to protect Israel.
The bottom line? Some people who ordered and carried out 9/11 did it "to protect
But world-wide opinion is turning against
Again, I am talking strictly from a practical perspective. Empires don't last forever, and bullies are eventually dogpiled on and brought down. Israel -- and America -- can best protect themselves by quiet defensive strength, not offensive brutality.
(3) Fighting for Christ
The war in the
My own father-in-law, who is a very smart man intellectually, has hinted that he thinks we should fight in the
Moreover, millions of Americans believe that Christ will not come again until Israel wipes out its competitors and there is widespread war in the Middle East. Some of these folks want to start a huge fire of war and death and destruction, so that Jesus comes quickly.
9/11 was the spark that, in some of the true believers' eyes, will allow the "holy crusade" to go forward, and was the excuse to start "the Battle of Armageddon" in the
But the New Testament says that Christ and God are all about love. If true, world war and violent inquisitions will not be the things that persuade Christ to return to Earth.
(4) Choosing Our Own Timing
Some believe that the terrorists were going to attack us anyway, so we might as well make it happen now, at a time of our own choosing, while America is still the sole superpower, and before the enemy gets too strong.
You might say that Al Qaeda isn't real, or that it is a creation of the Western and Israeli intelligence services. or that Al Qaeda is real, but composed of a handful of idiots who are too weak and stupid to light a fire in their own trash can. (See this Los Angeles Times Article, reviewing a BBC documentary entitled "The Power of Nightmares", which shows that the threat from Al Qaeda has been vastly overblown; and see this article on who is behind the hype. And read the statement by a former National Security Adviser told the Senate that the war on terror is "a mythical historical narrative". And see this).
But I'm not talking about reality. I'm talking about belief. And I think there are people within the
Because this belief is based on erroneous facts, it will lead to disastrous results. In fact, Al Qaeda wasn't in
9/11 was a Big Mistake
Forgetting the immorality of murdering 3,000 innocent Americans, each of the four major beliefs discussed above for why the ends justified 9/11 are wrong. From a strictly pragmatic, real-world, cause-and-effect perspective, 9/11 was a big mistake.
It is my hope that those who are covering up the largest false flag attack in history will realize that their beliefs in why 9/11 was necessary were mistaken, and that they will help to tell the truth and prevent future false flag attacks.
Moreover, with modern forms of instantaneous communication like the Internet, cellphone cameras, and miniature videocams, its harder to get away with false flags than it used to be. False flags are destroying the confidence of a large proportion of the population in government. Not only do the ends not justify the means, but the means of false flag terrorism don't even lead to the ends sought by its practitioners.
