Nafeez Ahmed: Calibrating fear - The liquid bomb plot and the long war

Calibrating fear: The liquid bomb plot and the long war

( via )

By Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed

The conviction of Abdullah Ahmed Ali, 28, Tanvir Hussain, 28, and Assad Sarwar, 29, in relation to the liquid bomb plot has been seen as a major triumph for British police and intelligence efforts. Yet, despite this being the second re-trial, the prosecution was still only able to convict the three for conspiracy to murder, including their intent to bring down an airplane – but not to prove their capability to carry out the plot...


Thanks Reprehensor

Nafeez Ahmed's writings are always enlightening. He says the following near the end of the article:

“The U.S.A.’s superior military strength and intelligence hegemony could only be translated into power and real global strength if there were ongoing conflicts – wars and terrorist attacks – that threatened the multipolar power structure of the economic-political world order,” continues the Norwegian report. “Accordingly, from a European or Chinese or Japanese point of view, every US war, wherever it is fought, is not just directed against a local insurgent or an anti-American ruler, it is directed against the economic-political multipolar power structure that would give Europe, China and Japan a significant position in the world.” By fanning the flames on both sides in Afghanistan, US forces are able to “increase and decrease the military temperature and calibrate the level of violence” with a view to permanently “mobilize other governments in support of US global policy.”

I think in discussion here on 911blogger, a specific term was used to refer to this method of "playing both sides" to enable perpetual conflict. Does anybody remember the expression used?


"Perception management" possibly?

Don't think so..

it was something else...but looking for it with the 911blogger search function will be like looking for a needle in a haystack..

Strategy of Tension

In my opinion, there are two key chapters about this in "9-11 and American Empire: Intellectuals Speak Out," edited by David Ray Griffin and Peter Dale Scott. One is by Daniele Ganser titled "The "Strategy of Tension" in the Cold War Period" and the other is by Ola Tunander titled "The War on Terror and the Pax Americana." If you can, read these. The Tunander chapter is really critical in terms of understanding how false-flag terrorism is used ostensibly by the deep security state to test out, ready and burnish what are perceived as soft areas of the security state's armature, physically and psychologically.

This would mean that in addition to using terrorism and war as a psychological operation directed at the security state's perceived enemies or competitor states, as Ahmed's article articulates, the strategy of tension technique is used internally against the people of the nation, and the operatives and employees of the security state itself. For most who understand the motives of the 9/11 black op, this is a crucial one in the eyes of those towards the top of the security state apparatus that support complicitly or implicitly the 9/11 coup. These kind of motives are pretty clearly articulated in Breszinski's "The Grand Chessboard."

Additionally, Tunander's chapter on terrorism used by the state against its own employees and installations is support, I think, for Robin Hordon's theory that there was actually a 9/11 attack drill complex embedded within all the apparently disparate, but mimetic drills running on 9/11.

Remember also that when 2 Israeli operatives with guns and explosives were caught and detained a month after 9/11 on 10/10/01 in the Mexican Parliament, they eventually were claimed as security consultants on vacation. What better way to both further enlist and harden the resolve of the Mexican government and the people of the North American continent to the War on Terror than to spread the 'security-run terror drills' around. I wonder if we would have heard about these security people on a lovely little fall vacation at the Mexican Parliament with glocks and grenades if they had turned out to really be Pakistani.

info on 10/10/01 apparently interrupted false-flag attack on Mexican Parliament is at and appears as follows:

October 10, 2001: Two Israelis Are Detained in Mexican Legislature Building after Behaving Suspiciously and Found To Be Carrying Arms
Two Israelis, Salvador Gersson Smike, 34, and Sar Ben Zui, 27, are arrested in the Mexican Congress Building in Mexico City. Smike is carrying a plastic 9 mm sophisticated Glock 9 mm pistol tucked into his underwear in his lower back. Glock pistols are made with a special plastic material and are very easy to smuggle. [CORREO, 10/11/2001; EL HERALDO DE MEXICO (MEXICO CITY), 10/11/2001; CRONICA DE HOY (MEXICO CITY), 10/12/2001] He also has with him a briefcase reported to contain 58 bullets, bomb-making materials, three detonators, and nine grenades. [EL HERALDO DE MEXICO (MEXICO CITY), 10/11/2001] The two were apprehended after ex-sugarcane workers, who were waiting for a congressional hearing, saw the two Israelis behaving strangely at around 4:00 p.m. They were reportedly photographing the workers below the belt. When the workers demanded that the two men identify themselves, the Israelis said they were press photographers. The workers dismissed their claims, overcame them, and then discovered they were armed with pistols and other high caliber arms. The two men had apparently also been seen the day before taking pictures. [CRONICA DE HOY (MEXICO CITY), 10/12/2001] Security guards soon arrived, disarmed the men, and took them to the security office. At around 6:00 p.m., it is learned that the two men are Israelis and that one of them, Salvador Gersson, is a former colonel of the Israeli Special Forces. [CORREO, 10/11/2001; DIARIO DE MEXICO (MEXICO CITY), 10/11/2001 ] Soon after, a man claiming to be a supervisor from the company, Desarrollo de Sistemas de Seguridad Privada (Private Security Systems Development), says the two men are employees at the firm and that they were taking pictures because they are “vacationing.” The journalists who are present scoff at the claim. [CORREO, 10/11/2001; EL HERALDO DE MEXICO (MEXICO CITY), 10/11/2001] After October 13, no additional information is reported about the incident.

Thanks a million

That was it. And thanks further for some very interesting information.


Were you aware that you can use google to search a particular website? Its far superior to bloggers own search function.

In a google search type: "thing im looking for"

In Their Own Words
The Truth and Lies of 9/11

I know

But in 911blogger's advanced search function you can specify limiting parameters that narrow the search. Furthermore, you can limit the search action to only blog and comment text, bypassing the keywords embedded in "recent headlines", "recent media", etc. But yeah, Google caches everything and provides clusters searching in parallel so it's lightyears faster.

You're a *nix guy right? Want to see something really cool? (Look ma! No ads!)

that is awesome

keep the nerdery coming, I love it.
