U.S. President Barack Obama was awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize after spending his first year in office overseeing the expansion of the CIA’s drone assassinations program in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia and elsewhere. This week, French President François Hollande was awarded the UNESCO Peace Prize for 'bringing peace and stability’ to Africa, following two months of French bombing campaigns and ground troop invasions of several West African countries, notably Mali.
This was necessary, Hollande told French citizens, to protect their homeland from attack by “terrorists”. Last week, another three British Muslims were accused of planning a “mass suicide bomb plot” that would have been “worse than 7/7″, according to hysterical British police and mainstream media. In the U.S., the FBI has been supplying “terror suspects” with materials to act out “terror plots” as part of sting operations the government then uses to justify all manner of criminal behaviour, at home and abroad.
When is all this going to end? Never, if the advocates for “endless war” have their way. We’re told “they hate us for our freedoms”, so given that our freedoms are disappearing fast, are the “terrorists” winning? This week we’ll be taking a closer look at the Global War on Terror. Is there really a “Muslim terror threat”? Why do certain countries play leading roles in this stratagem? What are the real goals behind “humanitarian intervention” and “regime change” in country after country?
