The Neocon Western version of 9-11 is that 3,000 people died in an atrocity perpetrated by Muslim-origin non-state terrorists (all of whom allegedly died in the various infernos) and that an indefinite US-led War on Terror was needed to protect the US and indeed the World from Muslim-origin non-state terrorists.
However the horrible actualities are that (1) 11 million Americans have died preventably since 2001 plus 1.1 million globally from US-protected Afghan opiates, all linked to successive US Administrations committing $5 trillion to killing Muslims abroad rather than keeping Americans alive at home, (2) 9 million Muslims have died in the post-2011 War on Terror, and (3) the US Government must have been involved in the 9-11 atrocity (Google “Experts: US did 9-11”).
The late American anti-war, pro-Humanity writer Gore Vidal put it succinctly in declaring that “Unlike most Americans who lie all the time, I hate lying” (Google “Mainstream media lying”)). Two nonprofit US journalism groups, the Center for Public Integrity and the affiliated Fund for Independence in Journalism, estimated that the Bush Administration told 935 lies about Iraq between 9-11 and the invasion of that ancient and now devastated country (see “Study: Bush, aides made 935 false statements in run-up to war”, CNN, 23 January 2008). Yet Mainstream media around the World blindly accept the lying Bush “official version of 9-11” despite compelling contrary advice from science, architecture, engineering, aviation, military and intelligence experts that the US did 9-11 (Google “Experts: US did 9-11” ). Similarly, Mainstream media have been complicit in massive lying by omission about 11 million preventable American deaths since 9-11 and the deaths of 9 million Muslims from violence or war-imposed deprivation in the post-2001 War on Terror – Western Mainstream media have resolutely ignored the avoidable deaths of some 20 million people linked to the US War on Terror, half of the victims being American.
Decent people around the World must realize the awful extent of this Neocon American and Zionist Imperialist 9-11 deception that has so far killed 21 million fellow human beings but which is resolutely ignored by Neocon American- and Zionist Imperialist-beholden mainstream media. The neo-liberal argument is that suspension of human rights at home and an endless War on Terror from Libya to Pakistan is required to prevent a repetition of 9-11 (3,000 dead) or a lesser atrocity such as the Madrid, London and Mumbai atrocities (scores to hundreds killed). Yet the warmongers resolutely lie by omission over 20 million deaths, half American, linked to this same War on Terror.
This extraordinary Mainstream Establishment lying by omission is compelling proof of the utter fraudulence of the 9-11 deception that must take its place with other excuses for imperialist wars e.g. the sinking of the Maine in Havana Harbor (Spanish-American War), the sinking of the arms-laden Lusitania (US entry into WW1), Pearl Harbor (permitted to occur notwithstanding and US and UK pre-knowledge; US entry into WW2), Korean invasion of their own country (Korean War), the fictional Gulf of Tonkin Incident (US Indo-China War), alleged threat to US students (US invasion of Granada) and General Noriega’s longstanding CIA-linked drug involvements (US invasion of Panama). These realities of the 9-11 deception are succinctly summarized below.
1. 11 million Americans have died preventably since 2001 due to pro-war US fiscal perversion plus 1.1 million deaths globally from US-protected Afghan opiates.
It is estimated that a total of about 1 million American preventable deaths occur annually (11 million since 2001), the breakdown being 443,000 (smoking), 300,000 (obesity), 75,000 (alcohol), 70,000 (air pollution), 45,000 (lack of health cover), 33,000 (motor vehicles), 31,000 (guns), 30,000 (suicides, 20% being US veterans), 21,000 (under-5 year old infants), 21,000 (opiates from US Alliance including Australia restoration of the Taliban-destroyed Afghan opium industry from 6% of world market share in 2001 to 90% today; the corresponding global, British and Australian annual deaths from this cause total 100,000, 1,800 and 360, respectively, Google “Afghan Holocaust, Afghan Genocide” ), and 15,000 (homicides) (see “1 million Americans die preventably each year under racist Neocon and Zionist rule”, Bellaciao, 18 February 2012 ).
It must be noted that some of these categories (e.g. homicides and gun deaths) are overlapping and for some (e.g. smoking) action now would not immediately stop the carnage. However, that said, successive US Administrations have had half a century to act decisively on the Surgeon General’s Report on smoking. Further, it is estimated that of those Americans lucky enough to have health cover, as many as 0.1 million die annually from adverse events in hospitals. Thus the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) states “U.S. studies estimate that between 44,000 and 98,000 deaths and more than one million injuries each year are related to [US] hospital adverse events. Many of these are preventable. British and Australian studies have come up with similar findings, suggesting that 5 to 10% of hospital admissions lead to adverse events, a third of which lead to disability or death, and a half of which are preventable” ( “Adverse events in Canadian Hospitals”, CIHI). One notes that Obama has enabled health cover for a further 30 million poor Americans but the far-right Tea Party and the racist, religious right Republicans (R4s) want to abolish this. However the American media ignore the reality that the Republican candidate Mitt Romney has a policy of denying health cover that will effectively kill thousands of uninsured Americans every year just as surely as if they were in New York skyscrapers subject to US Government explosive demolition as on 9-11.
2. 9 million Muslims have died (so far) in the post-2001 War on Terror.
Palestinian Holocaust, Palestinian Genocide: for Palestinians as a whole, 0.1 million violent deaths and 1.9 million war- and occupation-related avoidable deaths from deprivation, 1936-2012; 0.75 million under-5 infant deaths (1950-2012). For Occupied Palestinians, 0.3 million post-invasion violent and non-violent excess deaths, 1967-2012; 0.2 million post-invasion under-5 infant deaths, 1967-2012 (75% avoidable and due to US Alliance-backed Apartheid Israel war crimes in gross violation of the Geneva Convention and the UN Genocide Convention) 7 million refugees (Google “Palestinian Genocide”).
Afghan Holocaust, Afghan Genocide: 5.6 million war-related deaths, 2001-2012; 1.4 million post-invasion violent deaths; 4.2 million non-violent excess deaths from deprivation; 2.9 million post-invasion under-5 infant deaths (90% avoidable and due to US Alliance war crimes in gross violation of the Geneva Convention and the UN Genocide Convention), 3-4 million refugees plus 2.5 million NW Pakistan Pashtun refugees (Google “Afghan Holocaust, Afghan Genocide”).
Iraqi Holocaust, Iraqi Genocide: for the period 2003-2011, 2.7 million post-invasion war-related deaths, 1.5 million violent deaths, 1.2 million non-violent excess deaths from war-imposed deprivation, 0.8 million post-invasion under-5 infant deaths, 5-6 million refugees; for the period 1990-2003, 0.2 million violent deaths, 1.7 million non-violent excess deaths from war-imposed deprivation, 1.2 million under-5 infant deaths; for the period 1990-2011, 4.6 million war-related deaths, 1.7 million violent deaths, 2.9 million deaths from war-imposed deprivation, 2.0 million under-5 infant deaths (90% avoidable and due to US Alliance war crimes in gross violation of the Geneva Convention and the UN Genocide Convention) (Google “Iraqi Holocaust, Iraqi Genocide” ).
Somali Holocaust, Somali Genocide: in the period 1992-2012 (this successively involving US, Ethiopian and most recently Kenyan invasion) , 0.4 million violent deaths, 1.8 million avoidable deaths from war-imposed deprivation, 1.3 million under-5 year old infant deaths( 90% avoidable and due to US Alliance war crimes in gross violation of the Geneva Convention and the UN Genocide Convention), and 2.0 million refugees; in the period 2011-2012 about 1.1 million violent deaths or avoidable deaths from war-imposed deprivation.
Libyan Holocaust, Libyan Genocide from 2011 onwards: before the France-UK-US (FUKUS) Coalition invasion the under-5 infant mortality was only 19 per 1,000 births in Libya as compared to 8 in the US; the FUKUS Coalition has killed 60,000-100,000 Libyans and wounded 50,000 already; the FUKUS-backed rebels are ethnically cleansing “Black Libyans”; Tawerga, formerly home to 10,000 mainly Black Libyans has been destroyed and completely ethnically cleansed; 1 million Black sub-Saharan refugees have fled; refugees total about 1.1 million; the Libyan Holocaust and Libyan Genocide has just begun.
A forthcoming attack on Iran by the US or nuclear-armed Apartheid Israel is remorselessly adumbrated in the Western media. The devastation of Syria by Western- and Saudi-backed war has so far killed about 30,000 people and generated about 100,000 refugees.
3. The US Government must have been involved in the 9-11 atrocity.
While there are many aspects of the “official story” from the egregiously dishonest Bush Administration that strain credulity, the 2 crucial assertions that depart from reality are (1) 3 buildings collapsing at speeds consistent with nearly zero resistance after relatively limited, low temperature fires (i.e. pointing to explosive demolition) and (2) a jet passenger plane allegedly flown by single-engine light plane trainee pilots and evading numerous physical obstacles landing precisely on a dime at the ground floor of the Pentagon. Just as US Alliance Governments and the Mainstream Media (MSM) resolutely ignore the horrendous loss of life associated with 2 decades of Bush-initiated Wars (13 million including deaths from US-protected Afghan opiates), so they resolutely ignore crucial scientific evidence pointing to US involvement in the 9-11 atrocities.
The expert state-of-the-art finding by Professor Niels Harrit (Chemistry Department, 8-Nobel-Laureate University of Copenhagen), and his colleagues, of unexploded nanothermite high explosive in all samples of WTC dust analyzed proves that explosive demolition destroyed the Twin Towers and building WTC7. Only the US Government and/or its surrogates (e.g. the Israelis) were able to effect explosive demolition of these 3 buildings. Marvin Bush, George W. Bush’s brother, was a principal in the company providing security for the WTC, which underwent a security, telecommunications and computer shutdown weeks before 9-11. The discovery of unexploded nanothermite involved various advanced – but quite standard – chemical physics techniques (SEM, BSE, XEDS) available with a single workstation involving Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM; to image sample surface using a beam of high energy electrons), BSE (Backscattered Electron imaging based on detection of scattered electrons) and XEDS ( X-ray Energy-Dispersive Spectroscopy for chemical elemental analysis ) coupled with DSC (Differential Scanning Calorimetry, which determines the difference in the amount of heat required to increase the temperature of an experimental sample and reference; a DSC trace shows the relationship of heat flux to temperature, and thereby the endothermic or exothermic [e.g. explosive] behavior of the sample). Very small particle size nanothermite is much more explosive than standard termite. Professor Harrit has described their finding of unexploded nanothermite high explosive in the WTC dust as akin to discovering not just the murder weapon but finding a “loaded gun” (see Niels H. Harrit, Jeffrey Farrer, Steven E. Jones, Kevin R. Ryan, Frank M. Legge, Daniel Farnsworth, Gregg Roberts, James R. Gourley, Bradley R. Larsen, “Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe, The Open Chemical Physics Journals, vol.2, pp.7-31 (25), 2009, and Niels Harrit, “The seventh tower”, 911truth.dk (a translation of a feature article printed in the Danish newspaper Information on 31 March 2007) ).
Numerous science, engineering, architecture, aviation, military and intelligence experts assert that the US did 9-11, with some suggesting Israeli involvement (for numerous such expert opinions Google “Experts: US did 9-11”). However such expert opinions are resolutely ignored by Neocon American- and Zionist Imperialist-beholden mainstream media. Thus one would have thought that the discovery, published in a peer-reviewed chemical physics journal by Dr Niels Harrit (Chemistry Department, University of Copenhagen), of unexploded nanothermite high explosive in the World Trade Centre dust should have been of huge interest to people around the World. Yet searches of the UK BBC, Canadian CBC, US ABC, Australian ABC and US CBS for “Niels Harrit” yield ZERO (0) results for media reportage of these vital findings crucial to determining what happened on 9-11.
Neocon American- and Zionist Imperialist-beholden Mainstream media and the Western Establishment 1% are resolutely committed to lying by omission and commission over 9-11 and its horrendous consequences. Terrorism is defined as commission of violent acts to advance a political agenda through terrorizing people. If one wants to quantify terrorism the most objective measure is the number of people killed from violence or violently-imposed deprivation. Thus according to the Israeli Foreign Ministry the total number of Israelis or Jews killed by Palestinians since 1920 has been 3,700 whereas the number of Palestinians killed through violence (0.1 million) and from violently-imposed deprivation (1.9 million) total 2.0 million since 1936 (Google “Palestinian Genocide” ). Zero (0) Israelis were killed by home-made Gaza rockets in the year before the Israeli devastation of Gaza in 2008-2009 that killed 1,400 Palestinians. Accordingly one can roughly estimate that Israeli state terrorism has been 2.0 million/3,700 = 540 times worse than Palestinian non-state terrorism. Indeed if one accepts the lying Bush “official version of 9-11” then one can estimate that US Alliance state terrorism – notably US state terrorism, UK state terrorism, French state terrorism and Israeli state terrorism – has been 21 million/3,000 = 7,000 times more deadly than the assertedly Muslim-origin non-state terrorism on 9-11.
Mainstream media, lobbyists and politicians – who lie by omission and commission and ignore the 11 million American preventable deaths since 9/11, the 1.1 million global deaths linked to US-protected Afghan opiates, the 9 million Muslims killed (so far) in the War on Terror, and the numerous science, engineering, architecture, aviation, military and intelligence experts who assert that the US did 9-11 – are complicit in these appalling atrocities. The 99% of the Western Murdochracies, Lobbyocracies and Corporatocracies are ruled by a Neocon American- and Zionist Imperialist-dominated 1% that presides over deadly US Alliance state terrorism in the US and around the world. Please tell everyone you can about this extraordinary, multi-faceted Mainstream 9-11 deception.
