Footnotes: Did George Bush surrender to Bin Laden on 9/11?
Did George Bush surrender to Bin Laden on 9/11?
No he did not would be a standard conjecture depending on which side of the fence you live in, or the realms of thinking you have decided to 'fence' yourself in, and ideally what this vague word WORLD really means to you.
For a start if you are somebody fitting the profile of an ordinary human being, happy with your lot, minding your own business, not reading a newspaper or watching TV, chances are 9/11 is a set of numbers that correlates to thousands of individuals of varied nationalities, religion and gender whose lives were brutally cut short in New York in 2001 by psychopaths who we ironically have not been able to positively ID.
These are basic bullet points for you if we may, and it might all be very worthwhile to add a footnote to your mind's database that the dead killers whose photographs we splashed all across the world were Muslims, who ascribe to a religion called Islam.
Add another footnote that when George Bush declared 'war on terror', it was not a war meant against the religion per se, but selectively on a small band of brigands whose motives remain as thoroughly confusing to all of us, if not to the mighty US.
To make things simpler it is a small matter reflecting the blatant pettiness of Bush and his coterie of personal friends and construed enemies in the business of peddling HATE. No religion preaches hate, it is a religion in itself, imminently saleable if you can package it for a world market, and have high profile megalomaniacs in roles of modern day theologians-cum-salesman-cum-distributor-cum-'world leaders' propagating the same through a media designed for the explicit purpose.
The world in any case is devoid of role models in this new millennium that can teach us the lofty ideals of compassion, of Love.
Little does it matter that many among the alleged hijackers who carried out the suicide attacks and should have been killed, inexplicably and miraculously survived and sent out desperate WAA (We are Alive) messages from right around the world!
News worthy as those stories may have been, they were not loud enough for 'world opinion leaders' (manipulators) like the BBC or CNN to catch on. As of now they remain stories, consigned, confined and condemned to domains of the new parlance 'conspiracy theories'. We have even been denied the luxury of a 'sexed up' version - whatever that means.
Conspiracy theories are talks and thoughts on events that may or may not be true and reasonable human beings ought to shun them for there are grave risks attached. These are events that transpired behind our backs and giving credence to them surrealistically traps us, and in the process conjures demons to appear right in front of our eyes, when it would have been much better if they were left were they were in the first place - BEHIND.
Confronting them on the other hand would be more than a passing nightmare of maybe or maybe not's - or turn out to be a sickening obsession that have all ingredients for others to term you delusional, paranoid, hallucinatory - plain English CRAZEEEE.
Not ofcourse if you are member of the elite Bin Laden family, who declared war on the US long before 9/11 or before the great shaman George Bush accepted his challenge and declared retaliation?
Immediately after the attacks on New York - and because the killers appeared out of the deep blue yonder which the US thought it had God ordained supremacy, the first and natural thing to do was shut down the airspace, ground all commercial and other flights - and as we watched on TV the American skyline viewed from Air Traffic Control radars while otherwise abuzz at any given time with dots as if in an ants colony - simmered down and cleared out.
While we heaved a sigh of relief - the white lies from the White House commenced at this point.
The first of them: there were a few 'ants' yet visible and we were told those were US Air force jets now in command of the holy skies. The Hollywood-ish aberration that the US has come around once again to save the 'world' at the very last minute again came true ….Walla!
Delete from your memory for the time being the fact that 'our' brave Commander In Chief was thousands of miles above ground fearful that this is the start of a nuclear strike on the US while we were stuck to our TV screens watching 'controlled feeds' from air radar screens and video loops of the burning towers?
We were however left with no doubts that if ever there is a (God forbid) nuclear strike for REAL the only person in the 'world' who has the strongest chance of survival is…. you have guessed right……..
Then just a week before 9/11/03 came another behind our back 'conspiracy theory' UP FRONT.
It now seems that one of the dots on our collective screen was apparently a US airliner and to quote SKYNEWS of 3rd September 2003 :
'Members of Osama bin Laden's family were allowed to fly out of the US shortly after the September 11 terror attacks, a senior official said. Even though American airspace had been shut down, the Bush administration allowed a jet to fly around the US picking up family members from 10 cities, including Los Angeles, Washington DC, Boston and Houston. Some 140 high ranking Saudi officials were also on the plane'
As of now we do not know why and who authorized this evacuation and other than the number 140 we have no further details of the passenger or cargo manifest of the flight. Were they terrorists, did the cargo hold bullions and where in the 10 cities in the US did these 140 individual live? Do we know their neighbors, do we have any idea where they went shopping, and - and horror of horrors - have they all come back post 9/11?
By the way has anybody seen a passengers list of either aircraft's that struck the WTC or the one that parked itself on the Pentagon?
Other than the Arabs Al-Qaeda's our guess is we have seen none. Nobody for instance has a clue as to the name of the pilots of those aircraft's. There could well be more questions but they are best not asked.
The 'shady war' on terror goes on and we in the rest in the world see mindless 'poor mans' replications of the same. We are conjuring up terrorist in fake encounters, fake shootings, fake base camps, fake arms and ammunition retrieval, fake bombings only to supplant the US status quo. We would 'ape' the US in every sphere of our life - to imagine that we will not 'ape' a worldwide hoax authorized by the White House is un-stretching our imagination a bit too far.
We Daisy Cutter-ed to smithereens the mud huts of the poor in Afghanistan's mountains and promised to 'smoke 'em out'. Our 'smoke' unfortunately did not reach the foxholes of the Talibans who are making a resurgent come back.
Not to forget that Bin Laden and his Deputy (as also his in-law) Ayman Al-Zawahri were once again displayed on our TV screens, sauntering in the woods, replete with their AK-47's and ammunition belts in mountainous terrain's that could well be anywhere in Afghanistan, Pakistan or even the US?
We never managed to capture Bin Laden and we never will dead or alive. His survival will ensure the continuity on this so-called War, which we are no part of and so it goes on.
We Tomahawked Baghdad and put up scintillating fireworks display as we chose targets 'harder' than Afghanistan. We bombed palaces, tall building, army command and control centers, houses, tested all our hardware's and software's, and to every US dead we made sure that a few hundred Iraqis died as well, mostly unarmed and civilians all in the name of freedom.
We never managed to get the WMD's that was cause enough to 'justify' the war in the first place - but we managed to drop enough napalm and radioactive materials so that thousands upon thousand will continue to die in peace times and be counted as mere numbers. For all practical purpose our worst nightmares are being played out real time on TV and we have been asked to shut out our paranoia and agree that this is the 'real thing', and this is how things will be for a very long time - and that is about it?
Meanwhile Saddam Hussein lives and will continue to live - or are we going to be proven wrong?
As for who is sponsoring the war - it might make quite an impressive list - but to top it off in all likelihood would be the Bush and Bin Laden family, and Dick Cheney's Halliburton Empire. The 'world' as we know it today, belongs not to any of us - they belong to these modern days Pharaohs, and we are mere mortals that can only 'yes sir' them even while we mull over chucking out Yassir from the Promised Land. Any bets there?
Some extended footnotes before we close.
George Bush abandoned the US and the world as he disappeared several thousand miles up in the sky and on his return found himself in a secret ant hole several miles beneath the grounds, ashen faced, fearful of a nuclear attack. All the while, without our knowing and by all available accounts he also authorized the evacuation of the Bin Laden family from the US.
Question: Was he forced to comply with Bin Laden's wishes as a term of surrender?
Where we that close to an all out Armageddon, which could have been achieved had the 9/11 attackers crashed the hijacked aircraft's with the ease they did on the WTC or the Pentagon into one among hundreds of US nuclear facilities?
We have no answers.
When Bush says the 'US will prevail' he does so with a smirk in his lips. Take heed from what Bush Senior taught us many years back, when he said 'read my lips' in evaluating the performance of Junior. A deaf among us will tell you those quivering hate laced lips are no threats to any 'terrorist', but a master terrorist reminding us 'Let US trample upon you with ease - or we seal your lips forever'
Let us commemorate the death of our ability to find answers to haunting questions together with the death of our fellow humans: nationalities, religion, and gender notwithstanding. Add a condolence note to spice the death of our 'freedom' to remain free outside the Bushonian doctrine of open 'War on Terror' conspiracy theories.
And don't forget to buy dead flowers for the death of our collective imagination when the Brain Bashing Center (BBC) or the Canine's News Network (CNN) commands us to do so.
