The War on Terror is a Fraud

By: Prof. Akhbar Navees

The US is today, albeit temporarily, the world’s foremost power. It is a country whose people are blessed with wonderful qualities of the head and heart. They are honest, hardworking problem solvers, large-hearted, decent and deeply innocent. The emergence of the US as a power with the greatest ever reaches in human history is the result of a conscious and sustained effort on the part of Washington to make America a great power.

Central to this nation-building process was the key emphasis on cultivating and creating knowledge of nature, and of the high-level of integrity and commitment of the average American. However, the evolution of the US Public State, as a genuine democracy with the ability to unify mankind on a broad basis, has been derailed consistently, and perhaps irreversibly, by corporate cliques that have taken the US on the path of global conquest and exploitation of the poor but resource-rich countries. This path will eventually lead to USA’s defeat, beginning in Central Asia, and its rapid and bloody decline in a decade or two, unless, of course, the Americans can bring to book those criminal cabals which currently control, chain and exploit this great nation.

The corporations operate secretly, illegally and without regard for the deeper interests of the people or of humanity. Thus, the exploited countries see the US as a power of unprecedented and unmatched ruthlessness. The US is not only the greatest scientific force in history, but it is also the greatest subversive power ever to afflict this globe.

To murder a few million, to destroy countries and cultures, to plunder like no one has ever plundered before, to burn and to ravage the environment beyond imagination, is something that the US forces do in service of its corporate masters. As General “Howling” Jacob Smith told his troops during the Philippine war: “I wish you to kill and burn. The more you kill and burn, the better you please me.” Or as the contemporary American writer Michael Ledeen wrote: “Every 10 years or so the US needs to pick up some crappy little country and throw it against the wall, just to show we mean business.” This “business” is corporate business.

Corporations have gained ascendancy in the White House, the US legislative bodies and judiciary, as well as the US agencies, some of which, such as the CIA, were created on the persuasion of, and for Wall Street. This corporate ascendancy in US power structure is now a constant and deeply embedded feature of the American domestic and international politics. The people of the US are now out of the loop completely, and perhaps permanently. Therein lies the real danger to the future of mankind.

The current eruption of US militarism reflects the desperate urge of corporate cabals to hastily enslave mankind and apportion all its resources for the US elite, in the name of the US “people” and “civilisation” of course. It was Orwell who once wrote: “As I write highly civilised human beings are flying overhead, trying to kill me.” What took the US into World War I was, more than anything else, the financial interests of the House of Morgan.

The House of Morgan enjoyed a very special relation with the British, who decided to borrow money for its war costs from the J.P. Morgan Bank. Without a British victory these loans would be lost. As noted in 1920 by Morgan’s partner Lamont: “The national debts of the world have increased by 210 billion or about 475 percent in the last six years.” Wilson had been elected on the slogan of keeping America out of the war, but he betrayed his people and entered World War I in the interest of US banking and business. This war, fought secretly for the control of petroleum reserves, resulted in an estimated 16 to 20 million deaths, half of them civilian.

The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and the Trilateral Commission (TC) were set up by the Rockefeller family, the latter in 1973. These “think tanks” work perpetually for the interests of “Big Oil” and related businesses owned by the wealthiest families of the planet. Winston Lord, former US Ambassador to China and former CFR member, once said: “The Trilateral Commission does not run the world, the Council on Foreign Relations does that.” In 1973, David Rockefeller met with 27 heads of state, as well as the Pope and representatives of China and the USSR.

However, despite the fact that the US government continues even today to pursue the interests of “Big Oil”, a new cabal involving George Bush Sr, Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney et al has emerged – the so-called neocons. This rightwing cabal started gaining influence during the Ford presidency, when Rumsfeld became Secretary of Defence and brought in his unknown 33-year old protégé Dick Cheney. As Professor Peter Dale Scott puts it: “In the November of 1975, the team of Rumsfeld and Cheney roughly occupied the same position of dominance in the Pentagon and White House that they would come to occupy in the George W. Bush administration of 2001.” They sabotaged the policy of détente, forced the US to abandon the policy of peaceful co-existence with the Soviet Union and subverted the normal democratic channels of decision making. Much of the woes of the world of today result from the neocon strategy: permanent war and permanent subjugation of US public interests to corporate interests.

The neocon movement was funded by an alternative group of wealthy men, who wanted to “roll back”, and not just contain Russia and eventually to set up a global US empire. The Olin Foundation, which funded this movement, and the American Enterprise Institute became more important as money was spent on propagating the neocon agenda.

With the advent of Reagan the neocons finally had their way and it was the neocon political trajectory that led to 9/11. It is now very clear that 9/11 was staged so that the US could, under the garb of fighting terrorism, scatter military bases worldwide and embark on its programme of military conquest. As Professor Michel Chossudovsky has put it, the war against terrorism is a “fraud”.

    very informative.

    the war on terror is nothing but a line to pave way for the NEW WORLD ORDER.

    The problem in “history” has always been how to live with a tiger:the Greeks, the Romans,the Arabs,the Mongols, the Turks and the British….. That need policies which are shrewd, though not necessarily brave.

    “WAR ON NTERROR IS A FRAUD” – against Islam and Muslim lands to usurp the subjugated lands of Islam, control its resources, keep the Muslim rulers in their pockets and perpetuate the Jewish State in the heart of Muslim world.

    Pak Army’s so called War against Taliban is a Fraud, not USA’s defending of Afghans from Pak Army and its Mercenaries, the Taliban.
    The worst lie is, that has some truth mixed in it. My comments are inserted below.
    he US is today, albeit temporarily, the world’s foremost power. It is a country whose people are blessed with wonderful qualities of the head and heart. They are honest, hardworking problem solvers, large-hearted, decent and deeply innocent.

    TURKMAN: Not ‘large-hearted’. ‘Generous’ and ‘Broad-minded’ is the translation of the word in your mind, “Barday dil waalay’.

    TURKMAN: How many countries have USA conquered in this ‘Global Conquest’ and how has USA ‘exploited the Poor but Resource-rich countries’? Could you elaborate on that please …!

    This path will eventually lead to USA’s defeat, beginning in Central Asia, and its rapid and bloody decline in a decade or two, unless, of course, the Americans can bring to book those criminal cabals which currently control, chain and exploit this great nation.

    .

    TURKMAN: Its a news to the world that USA is going to be defeated in Central Asia, where she has not even started any war. So you can not make up your mind, if USA is going to have a ‘rapid and bloody decline’ or a slow bloody decline in a decade or 2. Are your Pakistani MojaahiDeen going to draw blood of USA and make it ‘Bloody’ in Afghanistan or Allah?

    TURKMAN: Moslims never did anything like what you have written?
    Then, what happened to all the N. African Languages?

    Were they not all slaughtered because they had refused to convert to Islam?
    Had not Arabs become so filthy rich because of their ‘Plunder’ of all the nations from Central Asia to Spain that they had hired Non Moslim Turks to fight for them if any Enemy attacked?

    Was it not an Islamic Custom to slaughter all able-bodied men of the defeated nation, loot and enslave the households of the defeated?
    ‘Holagu’ or ‘Hullako’ Khan, Genghis and your Amir Taimoor used to built Towers of cut heads of Moslims of Baghdad and enslave all the Daughters of them.

    What out of the above has USA done that you have declared USA is, ‘the greatest subversive power “ever” to afflict this globe’ describing, what is nothing compared to what the history says about Arab Moslims, Mongols and some others. Why you have to lie so much?

    TURKMAN: Another Conspiracy Theory? I am not reading the rest of your mindless B.S. I know now, you are the same crazy Liar from ISI, I have read many times before. The only change is this new ID.

      The facts reproduced by the learned Vice Chancellor can never be denied or challenged but I would like to put forward “ War against terror is actually war against Islam”. I would like to quote the words of Perwaiz Musharraf in his speech in UNO, the war against terrorism, receiving end are all Muslims.

      New world order was the slogan of USA, in real sense, what it is, no body knows. I wish Wiki leak may bring forward some document elaborating this secret order. The whole world is suffering due to the break up of USSR, which was a bit balancing force agains USA. Unfortunately, the tool was Pakistan and military regime of Zia Ul Haq. World War I, WW II had never been fought anywhere near USA, neither any war shall be initiated there. The geological occurrence is such that no world power can destroy whole USA. Distance, power centre, militarized zones and finally the fire power does not allow any body to come close by. This is the principle of Might is right. Eight years ago German Chancellor has very rightly pointed out that supremacy of fire power of USA can dictate terms to Europe. Hence it is being done very rightly and very promptly. When USA wanted to hit Iraq, initially he invited whole Europe and other powers of the world, but when it came to capture Iraq, he did not bother to ask UNO or other allied powers to join him or share the bate with him. He just started hitting and moving forces inside Iraq because it was assured by the whole world that there is no smoking gun in Iraq.

      The first building captured by US Army was Petroleum Ministry. Oilfields had been surrounded and protected very carefully. Except few small fires, there was no loss of production. It is world renowned fact that Iraq crude oil is the best heavy oil in the world. The supply is renewed to Israel and USA. So, which economy in the world is being protected and taken care of in the period of economical crisis of the world. Who is on the receiving end from the destroyed and burned to ashes oil country of the world , Iraq. Fifty thousand soldiers left behind are only to keep the oil flowing to Israel and USA.

      Americans are variety of people, personalities and conscience. They will agitate against their own rulers, kings and thick neck parliamentarians. They dump animal shit in front of White house to protest against IMF or a lawyer pleading for Kuwaiti youngsters would publicly point out that America has a high standard of morality, how we can proclaim to maintain the same when we have Gaunt Name Bay operated by USA. All is right, thousands of youngsters are being killed in the prolong war of Iraq and Afghanistan. Families are crying, protesting yelling at Bureaucrats. This is all going on in USA, then what?

      There is one creature existing in White House, Pentagon and Congress. They are different, above humanity, away form social justice. They feel, they observe and then take action. This action is entirely away from humanity, mankind and religion.
      They always find the people like Zia ul Haq and Perwaiz Musharraf etc etc Does it make any difference whether in White House, it is Bush , Ford or Lincoln. They are the same, policies are the same. For Red Indians they thrown the blankets molested with Plague virous and modern age they use nuclear depleted arsenal to kill mankind.

      USA is a great country, the people are great, can you do something against them. No, so USA will remain great , new world order will prevail, occupation of Iraq, Kuwait, Qatar and partially Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan and some how Pakistan will remain as such unless China does not open his mouth, does not change his mimic policy, does not develop his own fire power, world order will remain the same.

      In the article professor has given so many big names, all are backed by big powers, high ranks and world influential personalities. Organizations are organized, somebody come from the dark and run the same. Modern world powers interest is looked after by them, financed by all big powers, agitated by top notches of these societies. Every body knows, it is not first time when it is in the press or public, but who care, what happens, how it can be altered.

      AM will keep on forwarding the email messages to all friends.

      Thanks to AM, thanks to professor and thanks to you all for reading such things.

      Dear Turkman, wake up to the new realities my friend…WAR ON TERROR IS A CRUEL HOAX (to use Bush I’s line). It was rather amusing to read your defense of American Policies (atrocities). Best wishes…

  • Javed Chaudhry  On December 1, 2010 at 2:09 am

    Right at the outset, it is essential to understand that Obama does not have any new policies about Muslim countries or war on terror. Obama administration policy is simply the continuity of the Bush policies. These policies were designed years ago by the Neocon-Zionist cabal, now firmly entrenched in Washington DC, controlling the US foreign policy today as they did during the 8 years of the Bush regime.

    The war on terror is indeed nothing but a well planned deception to create an excuse to destabilize the regions of American geo-political interests. Pakistan was forced to participate in the war on terror as a scheme to create bad blood between Pakistan and the Afghans especially the Pushtoons of Wazirestan. This has obviously given rise to TTP and their reaction is behind very many incidents or terrorism in Pakistan. There are yet other forces operating with foreign funds to cause destabilization in Pakistan under the pretext of inter-provincial politics, sectarian troubles and religious intolerance. All the terrorism being experienced in Pakistan has one main root cause, that is, the so called war on terror. It would be more correct to call it war of terror in stead.

    All those on the receiving end, the public of the Muslim countries understands the whole phenomenon. The only people who do not know what is going on in the world and who actually is behind it is the American public who have been totally duped by the Zionist controlled mainstream media in the US.

    CIA has a large budget to spread misinformation all around the world to keep things confused and the American sins masked and hidden. Even on this discussion forum I see certain people going out of the way to support the American terror and blame the victims for it.

    Time has now come for Pakistan to disengage itself from the war on terror and declare itself neutral in connection with American occupation of Afghanistan and call its army back from Wazeristan. The US has no business of forcing the Pakistan army to kill its own people. It is also about time for Pakistan to oppose the CIA drone attacks and put a stop to this nonsense.

    Can the present Pakistani regime do any of this? Unfortunately, no, they cannot and will not do it. After all, they are the American installed compradors, brought into the office by the illegitimate ordinance NRO to serve America. How can they say no to their Masters in Washington and start working in the interest of Pakistan? That is not what the compradors do!

    So we are back to square one, and will stay there unless the present regime is removed from the office. Is there any one in the parliament in Islamabad who feels for Pakistan? So far, no one has provided a proof that they do. What about ML-N, Q, MQM, ANP or any other – they are all birds of the same feather. None of them cares for what happens to Pakistan, they are all busy filling their own deep pockets.
