According to Reuters, British Prime Minister Tony Blair will call today (Tuesday) for a global, interventionist approach to confront terrorism head on and win a battle over values and ideas. In his speech Blair will state that:

"This is not a clash between civilizations, it is a clash about civilization.'We' is not the West. 'We' are as much Muslim as Christian or Jew or Hindu. 'We' are those who believe in religious tolerance, openness to others, to democracy, liberty and human rights administered by secular courts. The only way to win is to recognize this phenomenon is a global ideology; to see all areas in which it operates as linked and to defeat it by values and ideas set in opposition to those of the terrorists"

Right here, we have the core of the myth of Islamic terrorism. Blair and Bush are merely the spokesmen for the real strategists in their respective government "think-tanks". These are the people who are behind the current headlong dash towards global war that uses the myth of Islamic terrorism as its rationale. Blair states that this terrorism is a "global ideology", which leads us to believe that there are masses of organised Islamic terrorists all over the world, armed to the teeth, that want to impose a world-wide Islamic regime that eschews "religious tolerance, openness to others, democracy, liberty and human rights administered by secular courts." So tell us, where are these terrorists? Where is the administrative center of this monstrous campaign to turn the world into dark planet living out an Islamic Orwellian nightmare?

Of course, there is no such thing. At most, as Blair would have to agree, there is a small band of fundamentalist Islamophiles who are entirely dependent on nation states for their survival, and it just so happens that the nation states that have been sponsoring such types over the years are the same nation states that want us to believe that there is a global threat to Western civilisation. In short, it is all a bunch of horse hockey, big lies to fool the people in a big way through the use of the age-old mechanism of problem-reaction-solution. Bush and Blair create the problem, provoke the reaction from Western populations, and then provide the solution.

The proof of this is evident from the lies that have already been exposed over the invasion of Iraq and the alleged threat that Saddam posed. Saddam posed no threat at all, and Bush, Blair et al knew it, yet they lied big time to convince us otherwise.

It is interesting to note that the alleged threats to Western civilisation posed by this bogus global Islamic terrorist ideology are all already on the wane in both Britain and the U.S. Religious tolerance is at an all-time low, Muslims in both countries are now being eyed with suspicion and are treated as potential terrorists by state authorities and Western civilians alike. "Openness to others" is therefore soon to be a thing of the past. Western "Democracy" is headed in the same direction, with new government anti-terrorist laws stripping British and American citizens of their fundamental civil rights and freedoms, go and read the Patriot Acts I and II and the British "glorifying terrorism" law if you do not believe me.

Under these laws "liberty and human rights administered by secular courts" will also be consigned to the dustbin of Western political history. The supreme court in America is dominated by Bush-appointed judges who share his elitist and racist 'Christian' beliefs. One need only to look at the type of "freedom and Democracy" that is being bestowed on Iraq by American troops to understand that to Bush and Blair, freedom and democracy are just catch phrases designed to lull the public into a state of complacency while Iraq is pillaged and plundered and divided up among the ravening hyenas that make up the Western government-industry complex.

Consider these two BBC reports on where the money from Iraqis oil reserves have ended up. Here and here.

As a further example of how the 'anti-terrorism' policies of Bush and Blair are either facilitating terrorism or helping the alleged terrorists to achieve their alleged goals, the Scotsman today carries the following report:

Identity cards a 'present' to terrorists and criminals, spy heroine says

A National identity card scheme will be a "present" to terrorists, criminal gangs and foreign spies, one of Britain's most respected former intelligence agents has told ministers.

The warning from Daphne Park, who served for 30 years as a senior controller for MI6, the Secret Intelligence Service, came as the parliamentary power struggle over the identity cards bill dragged on. [...]

The former MI6 agent passed a withering verdict on the proposed cards, ridiculing ministers' suggestions that the system will make people safer. In fact, she said, the complete opposite is true.

"The very creation of such an enormous national identity register will be a present to terrorists; it will be a splendid thing for them to disrupt and blow up," she said.

"It will also provide valuable information to organised crime and to the intelligence services of unfriendly countries. It will be accessible to all of these," she said.

Baroness Park is not the first former intelligence officer to question the value of a national ID card. Dame Stella Rimington, the former head of MI5, last year said she did not believe the cards would make Britain any safer from terrorist attack; they would quickly be copied, she said.

It is all but impossible that the policy makers in Blair's cabinet are unaware of these facts, yet they insist on pushing forward with attempts to have a national 'biometric' ID card introduced. Ask yourself, why? If such a measure has no relevance to the job of keeping British citizens safe from terrorists, then why would Blair want to impose these restrictions on civil liberties? How can it be that, while Blair is claiming that the "terrorists" goal is to destroy Western freedoms and Democracy, Blair himself is systematically denuding British citizens of these same Western freedoms?

In his speech, Blair will also say that:

"nations must recognize extremism is deep rooted - with 40 to 50 countries subject to regular terrorist attacks loosely linked to its ideology - and that an interventionist stance was the precondition for future prosperity and stability."

What Blair will not admit is that many of these terrorist attacks are carried out or financed by Western governments which is simply part and parcel of the problem-reaction-solution mechanism and designed to create the 'reality' of deep-rooted global terrorism which then necessitates Blair's "interventionist stance" aka bombing the hell out of a foreign country on the basis of the existence of a bogus threat to the West from within that country.

Can you see it? How, with the resources and reach of a nation state - specifically the most powerful country on earth - it becomes very easy to engineer a global crisis and kick-start a military rampage that could well end with the deaths of millions upon millions of people? Make no mistake, this is what is happening, right under our noses, the evidence is there for all to see, all that is required is for people to face that evidence and give up their dependency on the diet of lies and disinformation fed to them by their governments and their government's hired prostitutes - the mainstream media.

Speaking from his cell at Nuremburg in 1945 to Gustave Gilbert, a Jewish German-speaking intelligence officer and psychologist, Nazi Reichmarshall Herman Goering stated:

"Of course the people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."

Today, this manipulative strategy as defined by Goering in 1945 is being used by Bush and Blair to, yet again, manipulate the people of the world to support a war of aggression on countries of the Middle East. Over 60 years ago, our own fathers, mothers, grandfathers and grandmothers succumbed to the propaganda and the big lie and supported a needless world war that left 65 million dead. Are we prepared to allow history to repeat itself?
