Pity the West would rather bleed out there.
I stopped reading at this point – “From that vow came the 9/11 attacks. In response, the US invaded Afghanistan ”
Sorry Mr. Gore. That’s simply not true. PNAC birthed the 911 plot to begin their “Global War Forever”.
“…One of the most interesting tenants was then-Mayor Giuliani’s Office of Emergency Management, and its emergency command center on the 23rd floor. This floor received 15 million dollars worth of renovations, including independent and secure air and water supplies, and bullet and bomb resistant windows designed to withstand 200 MPH winds. 2 The 1993 bombing must have been part of the rationale for the command center, which overlooked the Twin Towers, a prime terrorist target.
How curious that on the day of the attack, Guiliani and his entourage set up shop in a different headquarters, abandoning the special bunker designed precisely for such an event….” http://www.wtc7.net/background.html
tfA-t: “PNAC birthed the 911 plot to begin their ‘Global War Forever’. ”
Mr. Gore draws the right conclusion for – partially – the wrong reasons. But I also think you’re confusing the cheerleaders with the players – that gaggle of bloviating needle-dick academics couldn’t plot their way out of a soggy paper bag. With the faintly possible exceptions of Robert Mulller and Richard Clarke, I seriously doubt that any of the real instigators of 911, ie, those who took the critical path decisions which actually caused it to happen, were public figures. The bottom line of 911, in the wake of the USSR going so abruptly and unceremoniously Tango Uniform, was fabrication of New and Improved, Big Scary Enemy Mk II: those whose very reason for existence was obviated by lack of a Big Scary Enemy found in PNAC and their militaristic wet dreaming simply a convenient narrative, and, in extremis, fall guys. None of this is to say that Giuliani, Cheney, Rumsfeld, et al were not involved, but they were functionaries, merely following orders.
I enlisted in the Marine Corps Infantry in 2004 to go and fight for my faith and country. Two tours in Iraq, an IED blast on my truck, loss of a woman I loved going to the second one, loss of a brother to suicide in his barracks room after the second one, I was such a wreck re-enlistment was the last thing on my mind when the retention specialist asked me to reup. Then came the PTSD when I got out. I was an even bigger wreck with the nightmares, insomnia, depression, anxiety. Even getting fucked up couldn’t black me out of the nightmares, got help, PRIVATELY, NEVER WENT VA, afraid I’d lose my CHL. I did find it, and it’s fucked up I had to hide from the government because they like denying veterans who were willing to die for their country the means of defending themselves from criminals. I even questioned my faith in God for a while, until I realized, that God gives free will. I was so angry, that I asked myself, ” where the fuck was God, when innocent children were being gased in concentration camps”? He was in Britian with the Airborne, and infantry fixing to storm the beachheads, He was at Nurenberg when the animals were brought to justice. He was with me when an IED went off under my seven ton, and not just me, but my poor mother was spared putting me in the ground. Which brings me back to the bad guys dropping Zyclon B on children, all that is necessary for the triump of evil is for good men to do nothing. We are capable of dragging BHO out of the White House in handcuffs, for treason, but if those in the highest powers like the senate seargant at arms won’t do it, we get to see what Barry wants to perpetuate on the American people!
Can we nuke the ME from outer space as we leave ?
“Its the only way to be sure.”
