Legacy of 9/11: Endless US Wars on Humanity
by Stephen Lendman
A year ago article called 9/11 the mother of all Big Lies - the grandest of grand deceptions, state-sponsored criminality, the most heinous ever false flag changing everything.
Each anniversary is a time to remind people of the evil intent behind the incident. What happened wasn’t a tragedy. It was criminality on steroids against peace - perpetrated by America against humanity, a duplicitous scheme to convince people to wage war on terrorism, targeting designated bad guys invented out of whole cloth because US officials say so.
Endless wars against nations threatening no others followed that fateful day - continuing with no end in sight, combined with homeland police state terror targeting Muslims, African Americans, Latino immigrants and organized labor.
Fundamental rule of law principles were discarded - considered quaint and out-of-date. Washington rules alone decide things.
America is more militarized than ever in history - despite having no enemies except ones it invents. US streets are battlegrounds. Thousands of political prisoners languish in its gulag - at home and abroad. Torture is official policy. So is state-sponsored mass murder.
Independent nations are targeted for regime change. Illegitimate fascists are installed to replace sitting governments. Media scoundrels regurgitate state propaganda. Misinformation and Big Lies substitute for hard truths. War is glorified in the name of peace.
Invasions and colonizations are called liberation. Plunder is called economic development. Raping nations is called democracy building. They’re destroyed to free them.
Might justifies right. Open, free and just societies aren’t tolerated. Human and civil rights are violated for our own good. Patriotism means going along with what harms us - sacrificing fundamental freedoms disappearing in plain sight.
Terrorism is what they do, not us. Global mass slaughter and destruction are small prices to pay. Whistleblowers are imprisoned for exposing government wrongdoing.
Monied interests alone benefit. Humanity’s survival is threatened but who cares. Endless wars for power and profit matter most - no matter the body count and cost in human misery.
No nation in history caused more harm to more people over a longer duration than America - on steroids post-9/11, launching 14 years of endless war on humanity, risking possible nuclear mass destruction able to end life on earth.
Bipartisan lunatics infest Washington. Obama wants congressional authorization for unlimited war. He has lots more death and destruction in mind - perhaps confronting Russia and/or China belligerently before leaving office, an act of madness if initiated.
America’s culture of violence glorifies wars in the name of peace - reckless imperialism Michael Parenti calls “the process whereby the dominant investor interests in one country bring to bear military and financial power upon another country in order to expropriate the land, labor, capital, natural resources, commerce, and markets of that other country.”
War is America’s longstanding strategy for dominance - duplicitously claiming exceptionalism and moral superiority, forcing its will on others globally, spreading the Big Lie about democracy building.
The business of America is war, endless aggression for wealth and power. Obama is the latest in a long line of US warrior presidents. His successor will continue endless wars.
Money controlled duopoly power runs America. Names and faces of key officials are interchangeable. The outcomes of next year’s presidential election and key congressional races are predetermined. Voting is a waste of time.
Business as usual always wins, post-9/11 more than ever before.
