BEWARE THE REAL FASCISM

A lot of energy is being expended on the BNP at the moment - whether or not we should 'allow' them a voice; whether the BBC is wrong to give them a 'platform'.


The BNP are a diversion by the Establishment, who may or may not be aware that they are being used for this purpose. Think of them as a decoy in hunting. While we are attempting to deal with this 'danger' we are oblivious to the creeping fascism that is coming up behind us under the impetus of the Established Elite, whose Agenda is obvious by their ongoing Imperialistic and Rascist policies in Iraq and Afghanistan and in the case of Palestine, not to mention their continuing attacks on Civil Liberties at home with increased and unnecessary 'Terror' legislation, ID Cards etc.


Note also the tremendous jingoism and 'blame the immigrants' culture which is encouraged. This is classic divide and conquer - by inventing false divisions between the varying sections of the public, they keep us from fighting the real enemy: them.

PEAK OIL, the 'GREAT GAME' and the MEANING OF 9/11

INTRODUCTION

The most important aspect about 9/11, is not the event itself or even who was responsible for it, but what it MEANS.


When we come to an understanding of this, it is possible to view a much clearer picture of world events and how they are connected. Like any investigation of a crime, the Means, Motive and Opportunity are the overriding factors to consider. 9/11 as an event, is not the most important issue - the MOTIVE that led to it, IS.


My friend Rhisiart's MB post, on which subject this essay is based, is the kind that immediately gets jumped upon by some, who will immediately dismiss such things as being 'Paranoid Conspiracy Theory'. In respect of this particular ill-used term they do have a valid point - there is indeed a large amount of dross out there concerning the 9/11 attacks and many other events and issues related to deep political events. What I find contrary, is that despite their experience with the systematic disinformation campaign being waged by vested interests in respect to climate change and other issues, these same people don't appear to consider that a similar phenomenon could be occurring in the case of 9/11. I would ask everyone to consider this possibility in light of the little information of such subversion that does manage to squeeze through the propaganda model, for instance in respect to say - Rendition and Torture. The very fact that so much mis/disinformation exists concerning 9/11, is informative in itself - think of 'Ex' MI5 David Shayler's 'No-Plane' claims.


Some time ago, I came to the conclusion that the 9/11 Truth movement had become confused, fractionalized and in some ways lost its direction. The circumstancial evidence of a COINTELPRO type operation being waged by the PTB (Powers That Be) is quite strong in this case, although the personal foibles of human beings is of course a major factor and clearly exploitable as such. I also recently came to the conclusion that attempting to persuade skeptics with 'Physical Evidence' is a waste of energy - people either accept such evidence or they do not - but in any case, the enormous and confusing detail that such research goes into, invariably wears down both the researchers and the readers, and distracts greatly from the important questions we should be asking. In short, I think that the 9/11 movement took the wrong turn at a fork in the road.


For these reasons, I no longer want to get distracted by discussions of how the Towers collapsed, what may or may not have happened at the pentagon, or other aspects that are merely 'part of the scenery' of the event. Rather, I am much more interested in how the Elite and Western Military/Law Enforcement/Intel behaved before, during and after the event. It is these aspects which reveal the most telling information, and are most persuasive in determining a motive. I would also hope to address some false arguments, red herrings and straw man debates that are frequently used to deflect genuine rational discussion of the subject.


In addition, I will try and make the case for the MOTIVE of Peak Oil in relation to 9/11 and why this entailed an accelerated plan of Hegemony over Fossil fuel reserves to be justified by such a 'New Pearl Harbour'. Finally, I hope to shed some light on why the subject is studiously avoided or actively dismissed by those who we would normally expect to shine a bright light on the behaviour of our Governing Elite.


THE BEHAVIOUR of the ELITE

In terms of the 'behaviour' of Elite interests and their Military/Banking/Industrial Complex tools, the basic evidence can be summarised as follows:


• The creation, funding, training, ideologising and protecting of 'Islamic Terror' groups during the 80's, 90's and continuing to this day, by Western Intelligence agencies, and those of their proxies - e.g. Pakistans ISI and Saudi Arabia's SGID {1, 2}


• The creation of the 'al Qaeda' myth around Osama Bin Laden {3, 4}


• The secrecy of the NEPDG {National Energy Policy Development Group}, chaired by Vice President Cheney almost immediately after entering office {5}


• The suppressing of FBI 'Brick Agents' investigations of 'Terrorist' suspects both prior to, and subsequent to 9/11 by David Frasca, and the Bush administration {6, 7}


• The NORAD Wargames, and other exercises in operation on the day of the attacks, some of which were 'hijacking' scenarios, the overall planning and scheduling for which Dick Cheney was responsible {8}


• The insider trading which took place on WTC companies and the affected airlines, United and AA, in the lead up to the attacks which was never properly investigated, but points to the CIA and their Wall Street associates {9, 10}


• Ignoring of the multiple advance warnings of the attacks from foreign intelligence agencies and law enforcement/Anti-Terrorism agents, even foreign leaders such as Vladimir Putin {11}


• Suppression of the existence of plans found with known terrorist suspects to fly planes into buildings well in advance of 9/11 - Project Bojinka {11, 12}


• The existence of Off-the-Shelf plans formulated years earlier by General Lyman Lemnitzer to carry out 'False-Flag' attacks to justify an attack on Cuba - Operation Northwoods {13}


• Coverup of the presence of Israeli agents in Manhattan who were placed to 'monitor' the attacks {14}


• The prevention of any proper 'Air Crash' investigations and the deliberate destruction of evidence {15, 16}


• The stonewalling of victims families questions and attempts at avoiding an investigation {17}


• The rigging of the '9/11 Commission' by Bush Administration insider Phillip Zelikow {18}


• The refusal of Condoleeza Rice, Dick Cheney and GW Bush to testify to the '9/11 Commission' except on their own terms {19}


I could continue with this list for quite some time, and the footnotes given are but a small sample of the evidence available with a mere cursory search of the internet. A very useful and widely respected resource for the attacks and associated anomalies is Paul Thompsons "9/11 Timeline" {20}.


Of course there will be some who put all this down to a combination of back covering, incompetence and happenstance. I have a phrase for such people: “Raging Coincidence Theorists” - paraphrased from researcher John Judge who is quoted as saying "You can call me a Conspiracy Theorist, as long as you call yourself a Coincidence Theorist" {21}. In addition, the mainstream media, after initially reporting such anomalies as the Insider Trading, repeatedly backtracked while simultaneously regurgitating the chorus of denials parroted by official sources - tactics of which we are all extremely familiar with.


THE JFK ASSASSINATION and a LONG HISTORY of CONNECTIONS

This pattern of denial and refusal to ask any searching questions was a mirror of what occurred after the Kennedy Assassination, not to mention the other 'Lone Nut' murders of the 1960's; MLK, RFK and Malcolm X. It is my view, that essentially, the same criminal gang who engineered these political murders were also behind 9/11. Many of those from the Kennedy era are of course now dead, but some are alive - e.g. former President and Director of CIA, George H. W. Bush, son of Nazi supporter Prescott Bush and father of President George W. Bush, as extensively detailed in the documentary "JFK II" {22}, which demonstrates how the United States is effectively controlled by an Elite of Corporate Gangsters (headed by the likes of David Rockefeller), involving Bankers, Oilmen, Military Commanders, Politicians, and 'Covert Warriors' all constantly moving through a revolving door of interchanging positions of power.


It is notable how the same individuals, locations and modus operandi crop up with uncanny frequency when looking closely at such events. One such location is the Municipal Airport of Venice, Florida {23, 24} which is almost openly a centre for CIA/Military Black Operations. Not only have multiple 'Persons of Interest' in the JFK Assassination turned up here during its 50 year or so history, but it was also the location of choice for alleged 9/11 Hijack pilots learning to fly Cessnas. The former local Police Chief was interviewed by Daniel Hopsicker for his book 'Welcome to Terrorland':


“When we interviewed the former Venice Chief of Police, he seemed more than a little embarrassed, and totally apologetic about what had been allowed to happen at the tiny airport in his town. He asked that we not judge city officials too harshly. They had little or no control over what went on at the Venice Airport".


“ ’The Venice Airport is the kind of place where it’s not unusual to see a Blackhawk helicopter touch down at three in the morning and then take off again 30 seconds later,’ the former Chief said with a shrug. ‘Or the airport can be quiet and deserted one minute, and the next have 5000 paratroopers landing. That’s just the way it is here.’ ”


Now, I don't know about you, but I think this kind of environment with its frequent coming and going of US Military/CIA Operatives is a pretty strange place for a 'Terrorist' to spend his spare time. But then we would have to accept the government explanation that Mohammed Atta and friends, were indeed 'Jihadist Muslim Fanatics'. Connections between this venue and the Bush family also abound when, for instance, we discover that Jeb Bush was apparently onboard a flight that removed the 9/11 'Hijackers' records from the Huffman Aviation offices in the middle of the night soon after 11th September 2001 {25}. As usual, there are Narcotics trafficking operations floating around this web of intrigue, all adding to the Organised Crime nature of the ruling elite in the United States. Understanding this ruthless Cartel and its methods and practices is important in understanding 9/11 and the big picture of Global Deep Politics.


RED HERRINGS and STRAW MEN

There is a tendency among those who dismiss such investigation and analysis as 'Conspiracy Theory' to use Red Herring arguments and Straw Man debates to attempt to validate their point. One such argument, which has sadly been employed by Noam Chomsky is the 'This would have to be a huge Conspiracy' claim. My first point on refuting this, is to ask why it is that some people are prepared to believe that 9/11 was carried out by a small number of 'Hijackers' and enablers - perhaps 50 people in all, yet insist that an Elite sponsored project to do the same thing would have taken thousands of people?


Such arguments also conveniently forget the tried and tested method of Compartmentalisation {26, 27}. In the case of the Wargames and the multiple operations in progress at the likes of Venice Municipal Airport, this concept is of key importance in understanding how leaks are avoided in the interests of 'National Security'. It also explains how illegal wire tapping and other astonishing crimes perpetrated by Govermental Agencies against civilians carry on for so long without even the vaguest hint of their existence emerging.


Following on from this fact, is the refutation of the argument (again, one used by Chomsky) that 'Secrets Cannot be Kept'. As eloquently intimated by David Ray Griffin, if a secret has been kept, then by definition we do not know about it {28}. Clearly secrets are kept, and they remain so for indefinite periods - consider the Manhattan Project (which did involve thousands of people) and the Stealth Fighter Program, both of which remained secret until the Government was ready to reveal them.


Of course, as in the case of JFK and 9/11, leaks do occur and whistleblowers do come forward, but what happens to them is again, instructive, as in the cases of Sibel Edmonds, FBI Translator {29} and Indira Singh, a Hi-Tech Software Engineer for JP Morgan-Chase {30}.


Other Red Herring arguments follow the 'Even if it’s true, who cares?' pattern. Chomsky has astonishingly used this tack in the case of both 9/11 and JFK. In the case of the former he has stated that 'this would be a minor crime by their standards'. Now, apart from begging the question of why he therefore considers it so unlikely that the Elite were involved, this statement ignores the crucial and ongoing fact that the 'major crimes' he asserts 9/11 'Truth' is distracting us from were justified by the official narrative of that same 'minor' event. These ‘major’ events are of course the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq; the 'War on Terror' (now rebranded as 'Overseas Contingency Operations'); current policy in Pakistan and other less publicised global locations; not to mention the 'Patriot Act'; 'Homeland Security' and other Constitutional violations foisted on the US public and by the osmosis of other governments following suit, the rest of the world.


In the case of JFK, Chomsky asserts that he was a 'Consummate Cold Warrior' and attempts to refute arguments that Kennedy was pulling out of Vietnam, was in any way different to other members of the US Elite, or that the subject has any importance. These arguments ignore the fact that JFK attempted to end the Federal Reserve System {31}, of which those who have studied it well understand, is the method by which the Banking Elite financially controls and profits from the US Taxpayer. It also sidesteps Peter Dale Scott’s evidence that the Kennedy's threatened the established Elite as detailed in his book 'Deep Politics and the Death of JFK' {32}. In addition, it is clear that the subject’s real 'importance' is in revealing the true nature of how the US is ruled and by whom, and how this 'Gangster Class' was able to go on and implement further criminal acts including 9/11 - as the earlier mentioned 'JFK II' film indicates.


You will notice that I am 'picking on' Chomsky a little here. I'll come back later to what his motives might be, together with the anecdotal evidence of his behaviour surrounding such issues, but the reason I am singling him out is because he is most likely the pre-eminent dissident commentator of our time, who has been almost entirely consistent in his logical approach apart from these apparent anomalies. It is because he is held in such (deservedly) intellectual high esteem, that his about face on logical reasoning with certain issues, as described above, is so startling. If he were to use such a lack of critical thought in other areas where he was challenging Elite interests instead of supporting them, they would easily be able to destroy his arguments.


The Straw Man arguments are a little more obvious. A typical approach is one used by publications such as 'Popular Mechanics' where the sound and rational questions and evidence are ignored and instead, theories in which almost no-one believes (and which were probably planted by PsyOps), such as 'No Plane' and 'Directed Energy Beam' theories are 'De-bunked' while it is implied that all '9/11 Truthers' believe these claims and therefore are 'Crazy Conspiracy Theorists'. Such arguments are easily countered but the damage has already been done - as Mark Twain wrote: "A lie has already travelled halfway around the world before the truth has even got its shoes on".


One Medialens contributor, asserted that the "9/11 Truth Movement" was "spawned as a Psychological Operation" to distract efforts from "worthwhile issues". So we are to believe that there wasn't a government conspiracy to engineer a 'New Pearl Harbour' but there was a government conspiracy to have people focus on "fake 9/11 nonsense" instead of writing letters to politicians, attending protest rallys and 'Climate Camps' or wearing T-Shirts with slogans on? While I would agree that there is lots of evidence of such 'PsyOps' to be found, isn't it more likely that these were designed to muddy the waters, so preventing a clear picture emerging and dissuading any real questions being asked by reputable commentators in case they were labelled 'Crazy Conspiracy Theorists'?


MOTIVE: PEAK OIL and the NEPDG

As extensively documented by Michael C. Ruppert in his 600 page book "Crossing the Rubicon - the Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil" {33}, the basic tenures for investigating a criminal act are 'Cui Bono?' - who benefits?, then the establishing of MEANS, MOTIVE and OPPORTUNITY. Some aspects of the Means and Opportunity are detailed in the section on 'Behaviour of the Elite' above, but for the purposes of this essay, I want to concentrate on MOTIVE. Since I am grounding my argument on the acceptance that a Cabal of the US Elite did in fact engineer the 9/11 attacks, the important question is WHY?


As earlier detailed in the link from 'judicialwatch.org' {5}, Dick Cheney's 'National Energy Policy Development Group' was extremely secretive regarding its discussions and its final report and recommendations. The few leaks that have emerged indicate that some very dark secrets have been buried by the Bush Administration and that the NEPDG was basically an inventory of the worlds Oil Reserves; where they were, how much there was, and who the US would have to kill, bribe, coerce, invade or co-opt, to get it.


As it became clear that 60% of all the world's remaining recoverable oil lay in a Middle Eastern region the size of the State of Indiana, the Bush Administration’s attention focused heavily on this region - Saudi Arabia and the Emirates (which they controlled already but which are unstable) and Iran and Iraq (which they did not). At the time the NEPDG was formed, disappointing test drilling results had already begun emerging from the Central Asian (Caspian) oil exploration projects, which made the onset of Peak Oil even more immediate and the necessity to act on it even more urgent for the policy makers. Major players who ran companies like Enron, Worldcom, Merck and Halliburton began pumping and dumping their stock so they could 'cash out' before the information became public.


Michael Ruppert details these facts extensively at 'fromthewilderness.com' such as the article 'In Your Face' {34} and in the chapter on Peak Oil and his closing summation in 'Crossing the Rubicon'. He also details the 'Big Picture' of 9/11 in his lecture in two parts given at Washington State University in January 2005 {35, 36}. It is clear that a consummate oil man such as Dick Cheney would have had an early view of the facts of Peak Oil and that this was at the forefront of discussions at the NEPDG. Ruppert believes that Cheney was convinced of the facts and the need to act on them as early as 1999.


THE GRAND CHESSBOARD - THE NEW GREAT GAME

Apart from the obvious relationship of post-9/11 US Foreign Policy with the conclusions of the NEPDG, there are of course other documents that lay out a clear agenda for US Hegemony. The first of these is Zbigniew Brzezinski's 'The Grand Chessboard' {37}. This book is a blatant and arrogant treatise on American Imperialism, full of quotes revealing the mindset of the Elite Club of 'New World Order' Globalists of which Zbig is a member {38, 39}. His thesis, is essentially a continuation in the modern era of what Rudyard Kipling called "The Great Game" - a contest of strategy and conquest between the worlds major powers to control 'Silk Roads' (nowadays Oil/Gas Pipeline routes) and other resources and trading centres.


Brzezinski intimates the concept of having to gain public support for projection of Military Power:

"The attitude of the American public toward the external projection of American power has been much more ambivalent. The public supported America's engagement in World War II largely because of the shock effect of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor" [page 24-5].


The book also mentions the 'need' for an external enemy in order to obtain public consensus on Foreign Policy:

"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" [page 211].


This "External Threat" surfaced in the form of "al Qaeda", the ghost like entity that seems to appear anywhere there is oil. Both Brzezinski and Cheney are members of the powerful Policy Lobby, 'The Council of Foreign Relations'. Zbig also formed the equally influential 'Trilateral Commission' on behalf of David Rockefeller.


PROJECT for the NEW AMERICAN CENTURY and a “NEW PEARL HARBOUR”

One of the most significant aspects of circumstantial evidence tying the Bush Administration to the 9/11 attacks is the PNAC document entitled 'Rebuilding America's Defences' {40}. The PNAC was a 'Think Tank' formed by those who have become known as the 'Neo-Cons' in the 90's. The members and associates of the PNAC, went on to form the Bush Administration.


On page 51 of the report, after having detailed their intention to accelarate military spending and the purposes for it, the authors assert that 'the process of transformation' is:


'likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event - like a new Pearl Harbour'.


So here we have an irrefutable and undisputed fact: the authors of this document thought that a 'New Pearl Harbour' would be required in order to implement their agenda, they then got into power, (by means of a contentious Supreme Court decision), they got their 'New Pearl Harbour' and they implemented their agenda.


Is this just a coincidence to go along with the other factors detailed above? Shouldn't we be asking ourselves how the US would have justified the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq in the absence of this event and its traumatising effect on the Western Public? In January of 2001, Michael Ruppert wrote the essay 'Empire' {41} which understood that the Bush Administration was essentially a 'War Cabinet' and predicted that major violent conflict would soon follow. Indeed it did.


It needs to be reiterated that this was an accelerated plan. As noted in Michael Ruppert's October 2001 article 'It's a Lie' {41a}, Stan Goff, former West Point Military Science Lecturer and Special Forces Member, was convinced that the Afghanistan Operation was planned many months in advance. There is much evidence to corroborate him such as the deployments of Navy and Troop Forces mentioned in the same article. Clearly, 9/11 and the Military Aggression it 'justified' were planned well in advance during the Clinton Administration, but the imminent collapse of the US Economy, and the worrying (for the Elite) conclusions of the NEPDG, made it 'necessary' to bring the plans off the shelf and implement with immediacy.


LEFT GATEKEEPERS or PRAGMATISTS?

To serious 'Deep Politics' researchers such as Michael Ruppert, Peter Dale Scott, Michel Chossudovsky and Barrie Zwicker, such facts and information as detailed above offer a clear insight into the motives for the 9/11 attacks and the likely perpetrators. Why therefore, is this topic studiously avoided or treated with dismissive contempt by the 'Mainstream' Dissident Left such as Noam Chomsky and Alexander Cockburn? In an interview with Barrie Zwicker, James Booker asked what Zwicker thinks about Chomsky shutting the debate down on the subjects of JFK and 9/11:


Excerpt:

Zwicker: "But there was always something I wondered. I always wondered how come Noam Chomsky maintained to begin with, and has maintained to this day, that John F. Kennedy was killed by the lone gunman Lee Harvey Oswald. He absolutely said that, and as recently as 1993 he wrote a book called Rethinking Camelot that was a real hit-job on the Kennedys and said that it didn’t matter that President Kennedy was killed anyway, they’re all the same, so no individual president can make any difference. Then when Robert Kennedy was killed it was the same thing with Chomsky. He said yeah, Sirhan Sirhan; he bought the official story. Martin Luther King Jr, same story, James Earl Ray, sure, single gunman, and Malcom X". {42}


The case that this choice was perhaps made in pragmatism, is made in Richard Wall's 'Who's Afraid of Noam Chomsky' article {43}, but this article still presents the reader with further questions, not the least being Chomsky's 'interest' in the Kennedy Assassination, when researchers attempted to garner his support for a reopening of the JFK case in 1969, as detailed by Michael D. Morrissey {44, 45, 46}.


Excerpt from Richard Wall's 'Who's Afraid of Noam Chomsky' (quoting writer August West):

"Denial lies at the heart of this unusual Left reaction. Many activists have looked at the questions, thought about the answers for a bit, and retreated in horror in the face of implications. If the government had foreknowledge and let the attacks happen, or worse, actually took part in facilitating them, then the American state is far more vicious than they could have imagined. And if so, what would happen to them should they vocalize this? Needless to say, this would greatly raise the stakes of political action well beyond the relatively superficial level that even many leftists operate at" {47}.

Perhaps the Intellectual left fear risk to life and limb if they spoke openly about such subjects, as happened to (among others) Investigative journalist Danny Casalaro when he uncovered links between PROMIS software and Iran-Contra? {48**}. We have to ask ourselves what we would have done, when faced with the reality and ruthless violence of this unaccountable Gangster Class which run the planet. Perhaps Chomsky realised immediately what would happen to anyone attempting to expose that dark underbelly of the US secret government: they would either be attacked and discredited, killed off, or become entrenched in years of fruitless research and efforts to obtain justice.

Perhaps Chomsky (among others) regrettably decided this was a waste of energy - this is certainly indicated by many of his comments on these subjects. This gradual wearing down through years of research is what happened to Attorney and Kennedy Researcher, Vincent Salandria {49}:

Excerpt from Salandria’s Biography:

"I'm afraid we were misled," Salandria said sadly. "All the critics, myself included, were misled very early. I see that now. We spent too much time and effort microanalyzing the details of the assassination when all the time it was obvious, it was blatantly obvious that it was a conspiracy. Don't you think the men who killed Kennedy had the means to do it in the most sophisticated and subtle way? They chose not to. Instead, they picked the shooting gallery that was Dealey Plaza and did it in the most barbarous and openly arrogant manner."

"The cover story was transparent and designed not to hold, to fall apart at the slightest scrutiny. The forces that killed Kennedy wanted the message clear: 'We are in control and no one -- not the President, not Congress, nor any elected official -- no one can do anything about it.' It was a message to the people that their Government was powerless. And the people eventually got the message. Consider what happened since the Kennedy assassination. People see government today as unresponsive to their needs, yet the budget and power of the military and intelligence establishment have increased tremendously."

"The tyranny of power is here. Current events tell us that those who killed Kennedy can only perpetuate their power by promoting social upheaval both at home and abroad. And that will lead not to revolution but repression. I suggest to you, my friend, that the interests of those who killed Kennedy now transcend national boundaries and national priorities. No doubt we are dealing now with an international conspiracy. We must face the fact -- not waste any more time microanalyzing the evidence. That's exactly what they want us to do. They have kept us busy for so long. And I will bet, buddy, that is what will happen to you. They'll keep you very, very busy and eventually, they'll wear you down." {50}.

It is uncanny just how relevant the above quote is. The tyranny Salandria refers to, is becoming ever more apparent, as is the globalist agenda of those responsible for these events. This mistake of being 'Misled' is perhaps being repeated by the 9/11 Truth Movement, and it would seem that the forces of Disinformation and Subversion have assisted in leading it down the paths of investigations of scientific evidence and theories that can likely never be proved in a legal case or linked to the perpetrators directly - and much more pointedly - can easily be dismissed as 'Conspiracy Theory' by the barrage of mainstream media. It is possible that the collapse of the towers and especially of WTC7 may come back to bite those behind the attacks, but I am not too hopeful.

CONCLUSIONS

In Mike Ruppert's Seattle Lecture earlier footnoted, he talks about 9/11 being the "Elephant that has trampled over us and is now moving away into the distance" - an event that has gone past the point of meaningful justice being done - only still worthwhile devoting energy to in terms of understanding why it was carried out. Instead he insists we should be focusing our attention on the large 'Herd of Elephants' now charging towards us (Peak Oil, Climate Change, Economic Collapse etc). By understanding 9/11 and how such an event was possible, we are able to see the level of ruthless criminality of the Elite and also have a better perception of what may be coming, by joining the dots of events as they take place day to day.


The worlds nations and oil conglomerates are behaving as though Peak Oil exists. The well researched data from the Peak Oil Community, and numerous clues in the Economy and Media back this up. As time goes by, month to month, the picture becomes clearer and more convincing. The meaning of 9/11 is Peak Oil: the beginning of the end of Industrial Civilization and the world's only Superpower's attempt to dominate ever diminishing resources and maintain its hegemony. By understanding this, it becomes a little easier to predict what the United States and its NATO vassals might do next, how these actions will affect us, and what we can do to prepare and survive what lies ahead.
