War on Terror: Hypocrisy Caught in Act.

War on Terror: Hypocrisy Caught in Act.

After 9/11, western countries have supposedly unleashed the War onTerror  against Islamic terrorism. The multi-billion dollar forged wars are now  being conducted in Afghanistan and Iraq.  The US is spending billions of dollars on anti-biological warfare. And no one has answered the questions: Who was sending US military grade Anthrax through the US post? Why was additional hysteria created after the horror in New York and Washington?

Even before the wars it was known that Iraq had no connection with Al Queda, and it was obvious that creating democracies in Afghanistan and Iraq is an unachievable goal and has nothing to do with the war on terror. Most likely, immediately after the departure of the American army, civil wars and the resurgence of Islamic tyranny will rule again in both countries. Even under the illusion of American control, Afghanistan is a state run by narco-warlords. The return of a Taliban like rule is just a matter of time.

Western leaders do not want the complete defeat of the spread of Islam and Muslim terrorism. Only the illusion of the fight is important. Wars and terror make control and manipulation of the population easier. Warmongering has always been a favourite tool of unscrupulous kings and dictators. As a result, many democratic principles have been dismissed and sacrificed due to this phony war.

At the same time, democratic standards are dying, and duplicity is flourishing during this war: Russia is allowed to do anything against the Chechen independence movement; the US led coalition has a free hand in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay; human rights are being abused in the US and the UK.

Israel is the only country that has continuously suffered from Muslim/Arab terrorism for decades. Still, the International community denies Israel the basic rights of self-defence and self-determination!

Why is it excusable and justifiable to shoot the unconfirmed terror suspect in London, but it's bad practice to target the known Arab Palestinian terrorists? Why must Jewish people leave their ancestral land to Arab terrorists, but the US government does not want to even hear about the occupied Mexican territories, and the UK is still in possession of North Ireland and other colonial lands? Why is Israel subject to trade embargoes, boycotts and unprecedented International harassment and anti-Israel  biased media coverage?

So far, I have two answers:

1. In spite of all pretence and empty rhetoric, Anti-Semitism is still  one of main underlaying principle of Christian and Muslim dominated  societies.

2. There is always need for a villain in order to divert attention from  local problems and corruption. Jews have been used for centuries as a  scapegoat and as proven distraction tool Israel is used the same way  now.
