We all know by now that the real terrorists (the politicians in the suits and ties and the banksters that pull their strings) are waging their war of terror on multiple fronts for multiple reasons.
Domestically, it rallies the population around the flag, keeping the flock in check. At the same time it justifies the build up of the police state control grid to catch the thought criminals who resist.
It also writes a blank check for the illegal wars of aggression abroad. Simply place your terrorist boogeyman in the square of the chessboard you're looking to occupy and -- hey presto! -- you've got yourself an excuse to invade. (Even if you "accidentally" end up supporting them, right Uncle Sam?)
But of course the politicians, their string pullers and their fellow travelers benefit from the war of terror in a more straightforward sense. They get to use the terror scares that they themselves create to drum up billions upon billions in the name of fighting the boogeymen.
Operation Enduring Freedom – Afghanistan (OEF-A. Now called Operation Freedom’s Sentinel).
Operation Enduring Freedom – Philippines (OEF-P. Formerly Operation Freedom Eagle)
Operation Enduring Freedom – Horn of Africa (OEF-HOA)
Operation Enduring Freedom – Pankisi Gorge (Georgia Train and Equip Program [GTEP])
Operation Enduring Freedom – Trans Sahara (OEF-TS)
Operation Enduring Freedom – Caribbean and Central America (OEF- CCA)
Operation Enduring Freedom – Kyrgyzstan
…and we’re only talking about OEF! Don’t forget the roughly 800 US military bases in foreign countries and the major US-NATO Operation Baltic Fortress, which includes discussions with US defense contractors to create a regional anti-aircraft missile shield to protect against Russian aircraft – which can easily be adapted into an offensive array…and God knows how many other secretive operations ravenously consuming the US Treasury, plunging the Empire into uncharted debt.
