“Through terrifying headlines and shocking videos, ISIS is being used as a tool to justify war in the Middle East and to cause fear and panic worldwide. No, this is not a “crazy conspiracy theory”, it is simply the oldest trick in the book.”
ISIS was created by the very forces that are fighting it.
Ever since the creation of democratic nations – where public opinion somewhat matters – the political class is faced with a dilemma: War is needed to gain power, riches, and control, but the general public has a tendency to be against it. What to do? The answer was found decades ago and is still used successfully today:
Create an enemy so terrifying that the masses will beg their government to go to war.
This is why ISIS exists. This is why the beheading videos are so “well-produced” and publicized worldwide through mainstream media. This is why news sources regularly come up with alarmist headlines about ISIS. They are used to serve the best interests of the world elite. The current objectives are: Sway public opinion to favor the invasion of countries in the Middle East, provide a pretext for “coalition” intervention across the world, and manufacture a domestic threat that will be used to take away rights and increase surveillance. In short, ISIS is yet another instance of the age-old tactic of creating a terrifying enemy to scare the masses.
“Moreover, as America becomes an increasingly multi-cultural society, it may find it more difficult to fashion a consensus on foreign policy issues, except in the circumstance of a truly massive and widely perceived direct external threat.”
– Zbigniew Brzezinski, The Grand Chessboard
here is the rest of the story…
“…Meanwhile, Daesh, ISIS, ISIL, IS – or whatever its name – broke away from al-Qaeda to become the definitive regional, and even global threat.
Its pornographic barbarity provided a new bloodier banner for al-Qaeda affiliates throughout the region, with a prime real estate location to erect a whole new caliphate on Syrian and Iraqi soil.
In the process, the rise of ISIL gave a whole new momentum to American and Iranian interventionism in the greater Middle East.
Thanks to ISIL, the main losers of the Arab Spring emerged as the new hegemons.
Moreover, ISIL became the alibi or the justification for all regional warmongers to carry any atrocities.”
These avoidable wars cost trillions of dollars and millions of lives to enrich billionaires who pay no taxes and steal the taxes we pay. Wars of choice (the Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama and Trump agenda) will absolutely bankrupt the nation before 2030.
The American people will see a frenzied retreat: U. S. Military forces scrambling to disengage from 800 bases in more than 136 nations where we now wage at least 27 wars of unprovoked aggression against nations and people who did not attack us.
We have become the terror.
We could shut down corporate wars and rebuild the nation. The seas of Earth are demonstrably rising. These waters will erode our shores and submerge nuclear reactors, further polluting dying oceans on a wounded planet. Science fiction, facts and fear have brought us to this precipice and we have choices to make.
At this fatal and delicate conjunction, time is not on our side.
