Twenty Years On, We’ve Learned Nothing From 9/11
Hello everybody and thank you for tuning in to the weekly report.
20 years on we've learned nothing from 9/11. Nothing upset the Washington beltway elites more than when in a presidential debate I pointed out the truth about 9/11. They attacked us because we've been in the Middle East sanctioning and bombing the civilian population for decades. The 9/11 attackers were not motivated to commit suicide terrorism on the twin towers and Pentagon because they dislike our freedoms, as then President Bush claimed. That was a self-serving lie. They hated and hate us because we kill them for no reason. Day after day year after year right up until after just a few days ago when President Biden slaughtered Zamari Ahmadi and nine members of his family, including seven children in Afghanistan.
The administration bragged about taking out a top ISIS target but they lied. Ahmadi was just an aid worker working for a California-based organization bringing water to suffering of Afghan village residents. This horror has been repeated thousands of times over and over for decades.
Does Washington believe these people are sub-human? That they somehow don't care about their relatives being killed? that they don't react as we would react if a foreign government slaughtered our families?
Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright famously suggested in an interview that killing a half million Iraqi children with sanctions designed to remove Saddam Hussein from power was worth it. It was an admission that the lives of innocent children mean nothing to the Washington elite, even as they paint their murderous interventions as some kind of humanitarian liberation the slogan of the US/Foreign policy establishment really should be No Lives Matter.
The Washington foreign policy elites; Republicans and Democrats are deeply corrupt and act contrary to US national interests they pretend that decades of indiscriminate bombing overseas are beneficial to the victims and keep us safer as well. That is how they are able year after year to convince congress to hand over a trillion dollars money taken directly and indirectly from the average Americans. They use fear and lies for their own profit and they call themselves Patriots.
The Washington establishment lied to us because they did not want us to stop for a second and try to understand the motive for the 9/11 attacks. Police detectives are not apologists for killers when they try to look for a motive for a crime but the Washington elite did not want us to think about why people might be motivated to suicide attack. That might endanger their 100 year gravy train.
What was the real message of 9 11 to Americans, give up your freedoms for the false promise of security? It's okay for the government to spy on all of us? It's okay for the TSA to abuse us for the privilege of traveling in our own country? We must continue to bomb people overseas, don't worry, it's only temporary.
So, 20 years on what have we learned from 9/11? Absolutely nothing, and we all know what the philosopher George Santayana said about those incapable of learning from history: “I desperately hope that somehow the United States will adopt a non-interventionist foreign policy which would actually protect us from another attack. I truly wish Americans would demand that their leaders learn from history the only way to make us safe is to end the reign of the Washington killing machine”
