If I Were a Conspiracy Theorist...

by Just an Average Person Tuesday, Sep. 18, 2001 at 5:55 PM

If I were one of those crazy conspiracy nuts, I might think something like this: The attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were carried out by the CIA, in collusion with the President and his "advisors", in order to bring about an inter-related set of objectives:

The President needs a convincing excuse to invade Afghanistan, or some other oil-rich Middle Eastern country, in order to get his hands on foreign reserves without having to answer to OPEC. Of course, Big Oil would love to do some drilling in ANWR or off the Florida coast, but environmentalists have been squawking too loudly. This has damaged the President

if i wasn't so aware

by just an average international politics studen Tuesday, Sep. 18, 2001 at 8:57 PM

if i wasn't so aware that we are facing one of the major manipulation of the last 50 years, worse than the gulf war, worse that the war in yougoslavia, worse than the so called war on drugs worse than anything else the cia and the us have done before

if i hadn't majored in international politics

then may be i would be blind enough to believe the amount of BS we are being fed every day

but i am not

and i am scared

because i know what is going on and i know that there isn't much we can do to stop this

it's been way too carefully planned

for years and years

and i'm afraid it is too late

I believe the author completely.

I agree 110%.

I think as well this will ignite the second civil war if the president is'nt careful.

He said he would "smoke them out of their holes".

Ben laddin is responsable for the 65 % of the worlds heroin.

Also you had to do something to win back the people after they saw "Planet of the APES".

Also a rap group I never even heard of did an album cover of the WTC towers burning and realeased it on sep 11.

And a Bill called "the exstacy prevention act of 2001" was going thru the congress and will prolly be ignored in the shuffle now. It had a stipulation in it that banned raves from assembling in order to curtail exstacy use. This violates the first ammendment right to "peacefully" gather.

The EM:DEF (or Electronic Music Defense Education Fund) would now have little time to defend itself.

White nazi racsist redneck people now have the right to kill colored people or non-cristian faiths. Riots have broken out all over prisons nationwide.

The church practically owned network news and television last week. People were forced into the church again. Preferably a cristian or baptist one.

But all this would be if, I believed in conspiracy.

Some people would call me un-american for this.

I am an american. I am free. I do not control freedom. I believe in peace. I believe in unity. I am strong. We shall overcome. The war is against greed, hate, injustice and death. Make love not war!! Food not bombs. United we stand.
