Boogieman Abu Bakr al Baghdadi
Deus Ex Machina
By Ernest Stewart
"Not only could spreading Khorasan claims damage the U.S.'s credibility in Syria, but domestically, it's dishonest to launder talking points through the media and claim Americans are facing an imminent threat while dropping bombs, only to quietly disown such heady statements a few days later. The initial, scary news will always find more readers and broadcast news viewers than the nuances of press conferences at the Pentagon, and the federal government knows this." --- Kia Makarechi in Vanity Fair
He thought the CIA-manufactured group al Qaeda would be enough to last forever -- or at least until our empire stretched around the globe with 3 or 4 billion people as our slaves. Osama was our boogieman; and to help him out, on 9-12-2001, we stopped everything to fly all of his family members out of the country and back to Saudi Arabia -- less one of them make the CIA connection public. Trouble is, Osama died in December of 2002 from kidney failure; you may also recall that on 9/11 he was in a hospital getting treatment; and we let him leave -- although we could've easily taken him as we knew where he was. Still, even in death, he served our purposes; we hired an actor to portray him every time someone pointed out that 9/11 was a false flag inside job. He served his purpose well until Barry had the legend killed off to show the world what a macho man he was; of course, he couldn't show any photos of dead Osama as he was dust by that time. Ergo, we needed another Boogieman to keep the endless war going, and the Sheeple properly scared to death.
So, we went back to the drawing board, and created Isis -- with the help of Langley and John McCain, who couldn't gush enough about his good friend and personal hero Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi; so we picked that group of losers and made them into what they are today by simply killing a few westerners. We armed them to the hilt and set them off on their killing spree; and, suddenly, Barry could bomb Syria -- something we wouldn't allow him to do just a year before -- because of those pesky Russians. Speaking of which, we also overthrew the elected government of the Ukraine and installed a fascist dictatorship in its place to threaten Russia on its doorstep and then got all huffy when Russia reacted like we knew she would. In this one instance, the rat-wing was happy to go along with Barry -- as they're as bloodthirsty as he is; of course, they were obliged to remind us in no time at all Barry would bring Sharia law to this country -- even though their favorite Muslim has spent all of his term in office bombing Muslims, seven countries so far -- even more countries than Smirky and Papa Smirk bombed when they held the White House.
That not being enough to keep the never-ending war in operation, they invented another Boogieman: Khorasan, of whom Glenn Greenwald wrote last weekend:
"After spending weeks depicting ISIS as an unprecedented threat -- too radical even for Al Qaeda! -- administration officials suddenly began spoon-feeding their favorite media organizations and national security journalists tales of a secret group that was even scarier and more threatening than ISIS, one that posed a direct and immediate threat to the American Homeland. Seemingly out of nowhere, a new terror group was created in media lore.So, if you have stock in weapons manufacturers, or the makers of body bags or any related industries, have no fear -- your stocks are safe and sure to keep rising, America! And if we run out of terrorists to kill from these new groups, have no fear; we have plenty of Deus Ex Machina's standing by in the wings!
Oh, and this just in...
"Locking in at least another decade of U.S. military entanglement, the United States and Afghanistan signed a controversial Bilateral Security Agreement at a ceremony in Kabul on Tuesday.On and on and on it goes -- an endless war; it's endless only because you won't stop it, America!
