Friday, July 08, 2005What's Behind the London Attacks?
When I first heard about the London attack my gut reaction was that although they are going to blame this on Islamic extremist, I told Ous Cessay that I think I'm one of the few people who believe that the government was behind this bombing just like I believe the U.S. government was behind the 9/11 attack in the U.S. I don’t have any proof, but the timing of both incidences is just too convenient. It is unfortunate for Muslims that they have a long history of doing these types of acts. When people know your habits, they can use it against you. It really doesn't matter if they did it or not, because this is what people will believe (Muslim extremists are guilty - period). I bet the next illogical step from Blair et al. in this unfortunate event is that the blame will be shifted from Al-Qaeda to a war on terrorism in Iran just like Bush shifted from Al-Qaeda to a war on terrorism in Iraq when they knew Iraq had nothing to do with the bombing of the WTC.
I received an email yesterday that was titled “ATROCITIES IN LONDON THIS MORNING” and this person shares similar feelings about this horrific act.
The timing of the attack is very suspicious, coming on the heels of the start of the G8 conference. Both Tony Blair and George Bush in their speeches have tried to paint the attack as an assault on globalization and the G8 itself. This means that if you're against the G8 and globalization, then you're with the terrorists! It's a tried and tested method they've used time and time before.
Jones continues - as I sit in my office today, I hear the whispers of co-workers now utterly convinced our war on terror must continue. Despite American and British involvement in the Middle East birthing wave after wave of rebel forces, the Bush doctrine is now justified in the minds of millions. Petty grievances such as the Downing Street Minutes, the President's flagging support and Karl Rove's treasonous outing of CIA agent Valerie Plame are unimportant. A shadowy conglomeration is out to kill us. Link...
