Was ‘9/11’ necessary?

"The world suffers a lot. Not because of the violence of bad people, but because of the silence of the good people!" Napoleon (1769 - 1821)

Their business is war and oppression yet the US and NATO leaders and the mainstream media [MSM] announced that democracy is back in Libya and the long feast can begin. A nation of simple tribal communities, once one of the poorest Arab nations with no resource except oil, was colonized by Italy [19/11-43], then robbed of its oil [1955-69], and is now back in the hands of plunderers. [1] The adventurers are gone; the party is over for the Libyans.


Those who know him closely say that two events changed Gaddafi from an ordinary army captain into a coup leader. The story goes that on a holiday from the British Army training school, he was staying at a hotel in London with a friend and they decided to visit the fashionable Casino on the second floor. There they saw a familiar face playing high stake blackjack with a Greek shipping tycoon, who lost half a million dollars within a short time. The guy was King Idris’ advisor. Back in Libya, Gaddafi saw King Idris bowing and kissing the hand of Occidental Petroleum’s Armand Hammer’s wife; that deeply disturbed him. The coup was organized when the King was away. [2] 


Two decisions of Gaddafi shook the Western world. First he ordered evacuation of Wheelus Air Force Base near Tripoli, then a vital US base, and two British Air Force bases [Tobruk and Benghazi]. Next he forced Occidental Petroleum to sign a contract increasing the price of oil they drilled by 50 cents to a barrel. Occidental’s only oil field was in Libya and Hammer, a non-entity among the big oil, gave in. After much high level consultations in Washington DC, the seven oil biggies also followed suit.


When Gaddafi took the West head on, removing western military bases and asserting Libya’s right to price and tax its resource, he was barely 27 years old. World oil price had steadily declined, few spikes excepted, during most decades of the 20th century. Post WWII, the median price was US$ 19.60 in 2008 value. [3] By late-sixties the oil exporting countries realized that, while demand was rising sharply, there was about 40% decline in the purchasing power of a barrel of oil.


This act of Gaddafi in wresting control of oil price from the West paved the way for the second oil crisis in 1973 in which Zaki Yamani and King Faisal played a crucial role, but also got Kissinger directly involved. But Gaddafi remained a thorn in the soft behind of the global oil majors because of the quality of Libyan light sweet.  


Despite the insane western political and MSM propaganda about Gaddafi ‘killing his own people,’ the truth is that he, starting with no economic base, gave his nation the highest standard of living in Africa and one of the highest quality of life anywhere in the world. In 1970 Libya sold oil and produced matches, nothing else. In less than a decade, it had world class education system, industrial training centers, clean water, and electricity. Highways were far better than Europe’s. Libyan fresh fruits and vegetables were carried as gift for friends and relations by visiting Europeans. Most importantly, Gaddafi made his countrymen work; he pioneered a work culture virtually non-existent in any Arab country. I can’t think of any country that started with just one resource achieving such unparalleled standard of living for everyone within a decade. [4]


Now, the only 1.3 million ton steel mill has been destroyed; built infrastructure bombed into rubble. Nothing is working. Perhaps full spectrum dominance requires insanity and fireworks in about equal proportion. I wouldn’t insult vultures.


Where are we going?


Google “9/11” and you get 10.4 million hits; “9/11 analysis” gets you 47,000. No other event, perhaps in the history of mankind, has evoked so much interest, so much communication and information exchange, and so much excellent research in such a short time as did the events of 9/11. Even disinformation specialists and shills lurking in cyberspace could be identified and removed, so sharp was the awareness of astute activists; occasionally they did succeed in damaging the ‘truthers’ as in the San Diego public hearing where all hard evidences painstaking collected were stolen by one perp.


The events were carefully presented for maximum impact; billions watched them around the world. Everything. It was like watching a new movie with bits of leaked out story just sufficient to coax the subconscious to expect the worst; in the end it turned out to be a horror show. Soon it was old news until the attacks on Afghanistan, a neighbouring country, started. Lists of names and associations of the ‘hijackers’ had been surfacing in official statements and media reports, pointing to Osama bin Laden and his Al-Qaeda, then located in Afghanistan. On this pretext, Afghanistan was invaded; ‘smoke ‘em out’ cost thousands of innocent lives, children included. The sheer barbarity was astounding.


Osama was not even on FBI’s most wanted list and Director Robert Mueller confessed to the Commonwealth Club of San Francisco on April 19, 2002 that, after six months in Afghanistan, the US forces had found absolutely no documentary evidence there relating to 9/11. Soon over 40,000 were dead – many more dying from the heavy dose of radiation from DU bombs – and countless rendered homeless while cultivation of opium poppy boomed. [5 (a) and (b)]


Iraq was next, bombed into the Stone Age. Like Libya, it had high quality of life with developed social infrastructure and a healthcare system better than that of the US or the UK. Baghdad and Fallujah were made examples of the consequence of refusing to bend to West’s will: over 1.5 million massacred, over 5 million rendered homeless and refugees; social and cultural edifice razed to the ground.


The extensive use of weaponized uranium aerosol bombs turned the two war-torn nations virtually uninhabitable, contaminated Europe [6] and over five million square miles of West, Central and South Asia including 19 national capitals. My estimates based on recent population data show that about one billion people have been dosed with uranium aerosolized gas or nano particles. Life will never be the same in these parts. This closely corresponds to Brzezinski’s “South” in his “The Grand Chessboard.” [7] With these indiscriminate attacks Zbigniew’s grand vision already looks like medieval slash and burn: nasty, brutish, devoid of any semblance of statesmanship, sagacity and sophistication.


The findings of a recent report on Chernobyl-caused one million deaths strongly suggest that the global depopulation agenda is far advanced. [8] Since weapons of mass destruction [WMD] have been used, the region is staring at health and environmental catastrophe. Every life form will mutate. Experts say that the use of DU weapon is ‘made illegal because there is a specific treaty banning it and because it may not be used without violating the existing law and customs of war.’ [9] And yet WMDs have been used repeatedly since 1991 by US and NATO forces; it means that ‘Rebuilding America's Defenses’ rests on removing the survival options of everyone, everywhere including the Americans.


Israelis meticulously maintain database on their soldiers’ sperm count. They report a 40% drop in less than a decade. The fate of Italy, Germany, France and Switzerland is no better. [10] Ever wondered why each lethal isotope is the most prized possession of the banksters and eugenicists? They don’t care whether you are Jew or Arab or WASP or Viking.


Global Resource Control and the role of Western Governments


There has been much talk on the role of the Bilderberg, the Illuminati, whatever, but researchers were hamstrung by lack of verifiable evidence of effective control exercised by banksters on world’s resources, economies, currencies and governments. ‘9/11’ spurred that search because the world saw a naked assertion of power. That required explanation.


Indeed, there is credible evidence now that just about 50 firms, of which 45 are banks and financial services’ firms, overwhelmingly control nearly every major economic activity around the world; 45 are American or European, only 5 are Asian [four Japanese and one Chinese]. [11] POSCO, recently in Indian news because of their planned integrated steel mill and port has an all-Korean Board of directors, but the controlling shares are with one New York and one Belgian bank. Similarly Otis Elevators by United Technologies, a US-based military hardware contractor owned by American banks. George Soros has controlling share of Monsanto that controls genetically engineered seeds of food, fibre and fodder crops. These firms eliminate competition and dominate every aspect of the market including labour.


A key finding of this statistical study is that, although multinational firms appear to be in differentiated and isolated product market activities, they are part of an ordered structure in a network that is effectively controlled by the ‘rich-club.’ They mimic complex biological networks, like for example man, where every cell can independently process information but the controller is the brain. They enforce their decisions despite opposition of organized groups [like labour unions], or political parties and democratically elected governments. There are thousands of examples from every part of the world.


Besides this monster there is another one of relatively recent origin, now one of the top ten war-dependent businesses with obscene profitability, a private equity firm called The Carlyle Group. A close company, it is the gambling den of top British and American politicians where ‘winning at no cost’ is guaranteed; ‘winning’ for the politicians, ‘costs’ externalized to the American people or the poor around the world. To name a few shareholders: the Bush family, the Bin Ladens, John Major, James Baker III, Frank Carlucci. Evidently, the Western political class gets lavish tips for waiting and serving the banksters through the Carlyle Group. In the complex web of needless chaos the rich-club thrives.


Other evidences of the existence of omnipotent global economic network are also in the public domain; in Government records, investigative reports, revelations of whistleblowers and painstaking work of independent researchers. Yet, the hegemony is under no threat. The incessant western media cry, of Asian economies outstripping that of the Western economic block, the emergence of BRIC, the ‘secretive’ Shanghai Cooperation, and the lethal duo of Koran and Islamic Jehadist, is essentially a distraction to deflect the focus of persistent researchers and people away from the truth and it further indicates that all these regional groups are also in their cross hair.  


The Role of ‘The Secret Team’ [TST]

That economic and financial power would have been exposed to competition had the US and European banksters not compelled their governments to create a covert system of protection, of undermining any political opposition or legitimate competition from any quarter. For example, the protection to paper dollar as world’s reserve currency was and is of paramount concern. How that protection racket is sustained was laid bare in 1972 by L. Fletcher Prouty in his classic ‘The Secret Team’. [12] Their method is all over 9/11.


At the outset in his book, Prouty makes a distinction between CIA as an intelligence gathering outfit and CIA as a clandestine organization; the former often got involved in botched up operations, especially during the Cold War; the latter seldom failed. The former was hamstrung by internal checks and balances; the latter had access to unlimited resources and no questions were ever asked. Perhaps their only failure was in preventing the Chinese occupation of Tibet.


When people talk of Government-within-Government in the US, they are in fact referring to the nexus between the banksters and the clandestine team of the CIA; together they identify the people who form the political class. Unbelievable as it may seem to an average citizen of a western nation, the elections are a charade, merely a Constitutional formality to ensure legitimacy. The selection of Angela Merkel, Sarkozy, Bush [twice, and each time the elections were ‘stolen’], Obama, disgracing Strauss-Kahn, and even the current Prime Minister of India Manmohan Singh [who was not even presented to the people as Prime Minister], Suharto, so many of these so-called heads of governments, can be ascribed to the wishes of the club and delivered by TST.


The role of this unseen hand has been known for decades to the American and British politicians. Even Eisenhower in his farewell speech was guarded in warning his nation against the military-industrial complex. They know that TST disregards Presidential orders, can destroy their careers, and often kills. Kennedy, for example, was assassinated because he wanted the US Government to print money and that was inimical to the bankster’s interest. TST delivered.


During the Vietnam War, the US Government wanted a rapprochement with Prince Norodom Sihanouk of Cambodia, but TST did not want that. They disregarded President Johnson’s orders and conducted their own extensive operations including attempt to assassinate Sihanouk.


Although the event dates to 1968, the McCarthy story can cause irretrievable international complications for the US Government (Murray Marder, The Washington Post, February 8, 1970). Bill Colby, the well-meaning Director of CIA, through one John Anast had offered McCarthy half a million dollar to remain silent, which McCarthy refused (Bill Colby later died of “drowning”). Charles Morgan, author of ‘One Man-One Voice’ says, “if Marder was right, the secrets McCarthy knew made the government his prisoner. There have been a number of attempts on McCarthy too but he has survived.


Hundreds of similar case documents exist and, as John McCarthy says, “[t]hese documents show the government inside the government is alive and well……[and] [t]his is no more a domestic issue of the USA; but an ‘International issue because of the understandable concern of world leaders on the viability of the US Government which…. show blatant disregard for presidential directives issued to the National Security Council..’”[13] The military implication is clear: despite the existence of highly trained officers and a ‘separate command-control structure’, the political leadership is able to mobilize world’s most powerful armed forces to serve the interest of the banksters. [This issue shall be dealt with in full]


In so far as the civilian institutions are concerned, elaborate systems of identifying future leaders in politics, academia, bureaucracy, diplomacy and ‘civil society’ [aka NGOs] and silencing contrarians have been in place for six decades. A powerful network of information gathering and analysis is active. Funds are routed via powerful tax-free trusts and foundations owned or controlled by the banksters [like Bill & Melinda Gates, Stitching INGKA, Wellcome, Rockefeller, Ford Foundation, etc, the first three alone have assets worth over $95 billion] and the UN system. [14]


They work in extremely subtle ways using methods perfected by the RAND Corporation and the Tavistock Institute. Whilst strategic decisions are taken by the rich-club, the operational aspects are executed by the UN system, the foundations and the Pentagon through the innocuous sounding USAID, now a key player in the never ending war on terror. The unseen hand of TST guides their work and ensures that all national governments fall in line exactly as the club desires.


Those who think they can do things as they wish because they have people’s mandate face economic chaos, or are summarily removed, and there is a consistent pattern since the last war. The ability of TST to physically destroy any society at will and the deviously enforced ‘group think’ on issues of interest has ensured the presence of US and NATO forces in 130 out of 190 sovereign nations, and unmolested operations from around 1000 bases worldwide. Since TST controls the world drug trade worth $500-700 billion annually, the clandestine operations do not need budgetary support. If covert operations seem difficult and time-taking, US and NATO forces are brought in and they ‘slaughter, ravage, lay waste, incinerate, contaminate, devastate, conquer, colonize, plunder, exploit, and impoverish.’ [15] Libya is the most recent example. Kurt Vonnegut admirably drove home this point:


-        [They are] “…congenitally defective human beings of a sort that is making this whole country and many other parts of the planet go completely haywire nowadays. These were people born without consciences, and suddenly they are taking charge of everything ……And they are waging a war that is making billionaires out of millionaires, and trillionaires out of billionaires, and they own television, and they bankroll George Bush…”[16]


So, was ‘9/11’ necessary?


The events of ‘9/11’ were the most ruthless psychological warfare ever conducted within a span of about 90 minutes and that too on the American soil. A clear message was conveyed to the rest of the world that since they have no hesitation in destroying some of the most iconic symbols of America and in killing nearly 3,000 people in cold blood, they can do this anywhere, anytime, anyplace of their choice. Until ‘9/11’, the ‘club’ was largely unseen; after the events their presence is palpable. Was it merely the momentary lapse of ‘reason’ of Yoda, the Grand Master of the Jedi Order? I don’t think so, but there was no need. ‘9/11’ was not required, but it was executed. Perhaps sociopaths like to show off as well.


Kaminski ruminates, “We need to take the blame - now…. How many more lies do we need to hear that cost thousands of lives and take away our Constitutional rights? How much more poison do we need to have shoved down our throats by official government agencies? How many more friends do we need to see killed by government functionaries doing business as rabid dogs?” [17]
