Regarding terror, some years ago I wrote an article on terrorism that I totally forgot about. I just stumbled upon it while doing some other work. I think this piece tells you the truth about Terror, and who are the real terrorists that we should be most concerned about.
I called this article The Conspiracy Of Terror because that is basically what it is!
Actually, at the time I was also totally unaware of the cynical manipulations that governments get up to, such as false-flag terrorism, CIA torture, and the like. So in a way, that makes this article somewhat prophetic in that I assumed a degree of innocence that does not actually exist. The truth is probably more jaundiced and cynical than any of us could imagine.
Anyway, the truth is that without what I describe in this article going on, the scope for terrorism would be severally limited, if not rendered completely impotent.
