1.  “FBI apparently set up US teen blamed for fake car bomb”

This skepticism, of course, comes from the fact that the only groups that seem to be actually building bombs and conducting terrorist operations are within our own Western governments. This is reinforced by shocking revelations that Anwar Al-Awlaki dined at the Pentagon, months after 9/11 while listed as Al Qaeda’s #3. Al-Awlaki has since been linked to the the “Underwear Bomber,” the “Fort Hood Shooter,” the “Times Square Bomber,” and the “Shoe Bomber,” as well as the recent Yemeni parcel “bombs.”

While the mainstream media attempts to downplay the outrage of Americans concerning the government’s latest choice for air passengers — a hazardous ineffective x-ray machine or an equally ineffective, humiliating, and un-Constitutional groping — the stage was set for another high-profile terrorism story to reinforce the establishment’s faltering propaganda.
Will Americans recoil in fear from a bomb the FBI admits they constructed, gave to a patsy, and sent to disrupt Portland’s Christmas celebrations? Will Americans continue to be dragged into the staged “Clash of Civilizations?” Or will their fury over a failed, dictatorial government bent to the will of foreign bankers be compounded by this latest, juvenile attempt at stoking fear and compliance across the population? That story must be written by the American people.”

2.  “It’s Not Just the “Peripheral” European Countries … Financial Contagion Could Spread to “Core” Eurozone Countries and the U.S.

3.  “Does the US have the moral right to condemn terrorism when its own hands are so bloody?

When the Korean War erupted in 1950, the U.S. worked on perfecting this criminal way of waging war, the targeting of a country’s civilian population. Gen. Douglas MacArthur ordered that every “installation, factory, city and village” be destroyed in much of the north. Gen. Curtis LeMay reported that “over a period of three years or so … we burned down every town in North Korea and South Korea, too.”

Three million civilians died in that conflict, a large majority from American bombing.

We employed the same murderous tactic —- widespread, sustained assaults on the civilian population —- in the Vietnam War and its extensions in Cambodia and Laos. U.S. forces dropped 8 million tons of bombs —- four times the entire Allied total of World War II. Eighty percent were dropped on areas rather than individual targets. The region was immolated with 373,000 tons of napalm, dwarfing the 14,000 tons employed in World War II.

We subjected the people of Indochina to 15 million tons of munitions with the combined explosive power of 600 Hiroshima-type atomic bombs. The result was a decade-long crime against humanity that killed 2 million to 3 million civilians.”

4.  “We hear the same exact thing over and over and over from accused Terrorists — that they are attempting to carry about plots in retaliation for past and ongoing American violence against Muslim civilians and to deter such future acts.  Here we find one of the great mysteries in American political culture:  that the U.S. Government dispatches its military all over the world — invading, occupying, and bombing multiple Muslim countries — torturing them, imprisoning them without charges, shooting them up at checkpoints, sending remote-controlled drones to explode their homes, imposing sanctions that starve hundreds of thousands of children to death  — and Americans are then baffled when some Muslims — an amazingly small percentage — harbor anger and vengeance at them and want to return the violence.   And here we also find the greatest myth in American political discourse:  that engaging in all of that military aggression somehow constitutes Staying Safe and combating Terrorism — rather than doing more than any single other cause to provoke, sustain and fuel Terrorism. ”
