With American troops sinking ever further into the "Iraq quagmire", Bush's job approval ratings hitting new lows and a growing list of respectable officials using the word "dictatorship" in reference to the White House, the apparent plans for a U.S. attack on Iran can reasonably be taken as evidence that many members of the U.S. government have in fact gone literally, clinically insane. At the very least, anyone still in possession of the alleged human capacity for independent, critical thought is surely asking the big question:


How exactly has it served the Bush administration to bloody-mindedly continue to push forward, to this day, with a plan that over 2 years ago was already identifiable as containing the seeds of its own downfall and the trashing of America's previously good (if undeserved) image on the world stage? Is it perhaps the case that Colin Powell enjoyed being ridiculed at the U.N.? Does Donald Rumsfeld derive some satisfaction from the fact that he is considered the architect of the torture of innocent Iraqi detainees? (Actually, maybe we shouldn't go there).

Now, we all know that most governments engage in all sorts of illegal and scurillous activities, but generally they go to considerable lengths to conceal these from the general public and usually hide behind the cover of plausible excuses, for example, the 'Communist threat' that was used during the Korean and Vietnam Wars. But even in those wars, once the real goal had been achieved, the U.S. government withdrew. In the case of the 'war on terror' and the Iraq invasion, the plausible excuse of Saddam's WMDs was from the outset extremely weak, and it was always going to be just a matter of time before Bush et al were exposed as a bunch of liars. Despite this, there is not even a hint of a withdrawal from the endless 'war on terror' - quite the opposite in fact.

In looking deeply at the entire debacle then, we arrive at the tentative conclusion that there is something, some threat, that is driving the Bush administration to risk their political lives - the means to power and wealth that they live and breathe for - for very little in return.

So what is that "something"? Paradoxically, yet somehow very logically, that "something" is their political lives and the threat of a very dishonorable discharge from political life, the possibility of long jail terms and, depending on the circumstances, even execution.

To understand the why, we need to go back to that defining moment that, as we were told ad nauseum at the time, "changed the world forever".

As we have detailed in our published works, there is much evidence to suggest that the 9/11 attacks were carried out by agents of the state of Israel with the complicity of members of the Bush administration. However, contained within the 9/11 operation was a double-cross by the Israelis on the Bush administration. As a result of this double-cross, the Bush government now finds itself in the unpleasant position of being blackmailed by the Israelis and forced to accede to their demands.

To put it bluntly, Israel is now in control of American foreign policy and any American domestic policies that impact foreign policy (which means most of them). We will not understand the demented foreign and domestic policies of the Bush administration over the past 5 years until we realise that those policies are being directed by agents of the state of Israel, and that the U.S. government has no option but to obey. Of course, Israel's infiltration and control of American politics goes back much further than 9/11, but it was the 9/11 attacks that gave them unrestricted access to the bridge of the American ship of state.

Israel's agenda is a major reshaping of the political and demographic landscape of the Middle East, and all the death and destruction that such a 'vision' entails, and the U.S. military and its hardware are to be used to get the job done.

The bottom line: at least on one level, the lives of America's uniformed sons and daughters are being expended to fulfill the biblical prophecy of a 'greater Israel'. But before American citizens think that this is simply a military matter, they should realise that these insane U.S. military campaigns at the behest of Israel can only continue with the consent of the rest of the American public (all of this applies to the British public also, but perhaps to a slightly lesser extent). As the insanity and illegality of these campaigns becomes more and more obvious to Americans, the means to ensure that the they stay 'on side' and 'patriotic' become increasingly necessary. Reference Patriot Acts I and II, and those are just for starters.

If Americans have up until now believed that they were somehow absolved of any responsibility for the actions of their government and military simply because they took no part in government or military campaigns, they should think again. Remember what Bush said: "You are either with us, or you are with the terrorists". There is no option for fence-sitting, either you shut up and accept the progressive clamp-downs on your civil rights, which are an integral part of the 'war on terror', or you are with the 'terrorists'.

"No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main," wrote the poet John Donne. Every American is very much involved in the actions of their government and its military, whether they like it or not, and in fact, if any of you don't like it, you better keep it to yourself, because, while no man is an island, there is a little part of an island off the South-Eastern coast of the U.S...

So what, if anything, can be done in the face of such an apparently hopeless situation? Unfortunately we can give no definitive answer to this question, but what we can say is that the unsavory (to say the least) and very predictable final outcome of the path that America and the world is now set upon is very definitely being facilitated by the refusal of so many ordinary people to simply, and in their own consciences, admit the truth of the situation to themselves. Generally speaking, all calamities that have befallen humanity throughout history have occurred in the presence of a complete lack of awareness among the people about what was actually happening and why. Would we be in this predicament if billions of people were to begin to wake up and accept the truth about their governments, their own enslavement, both mental and physical, and its root cause? What would happen if the curtain were to be pulled back on all of the corrupt dealings that governments and international finance houses engage in on a daily basis, for all to see? Of course, the answer is that we do not know, because we are pretty sure that we, as race, have never put it to the test. Which is not to say that we cannot put it to the test, the option to do so is always there.
