What does the war on terror and professional wrestling have in common?
Posted by Saman Mohammadi
"The US government creates whatever new bogeymen and incidents are necessary to further the neoconservative agenda of world hegemony and higher profits for the armaments industry." - Paul Craig Roberts, "Is The War On Terror A Hoax?" September 30, 2011.
1. The bad guys in the last match are the good guys in the next match.
In the matches America vs. Afghanistan and America vs. Iraq, Al-Qaeda terrorists were the bad guys. But in the matches America vs. Libya and America vs. Syria, Al-Qaeda terrorists are the good guys. In fact, America and Al-Qaeda are tag-teaming against innocent civilians and government officials in Libya and Syria. Uncle Sam is the father of Al-Qaeda.
2. The show is scripted, and staged.
Western leaders and politicians are given totalitarian talking points that portray terrorism as an unstoppable enemy, but most, if not all, of the successful terrorist attacks in America and Europe have been choreographed by the CIA, MI6, Mossad, and other secret intelligence agencies. Many of the terrorism cases in America have actually been scripted by the FBI and CIA to keep up the illusion that terrorism is a national security threat that requires National Security agencies to be on constant guard against. Without the public perception of the Enemy, the National Security State is finished.
Another element to the war on terror show is that government/media narratives are routinely created to achieve certain political and military objectives. An example is the staged announcement of Osama Bin Laden death's last May. President Obama and his administration even went so far as to take photos of themselves reacting to the capture and death of Bin Laden, which was a total fantasy. Talk about commitment to the script. Absolute brilliance. Even Hollywood directors can't get actors to commit like that.
In May of 2011, I wrote an article called "The President's Role In The Political Construction of False Popular Perceptions," about the scripted official death of Bin Laden, the polished storylines of the War on Terror drama series, and the fraudulent nature of Obama's presidency.
3. The outcome is pre-determined.
The rivalry between the West/Israel and Islamic fundamentalism is not real, but pure drama. We know this because there is so much evidence that the CIA, MI6, and Mossad gave birth to radical Islam. The CIA has funded, trained, and armed Islamic radicals not just in the mountains of Afghanistan, but across the Middle East, including in Iran. The CIA and MI6 put the Mullahs on the throne in 1979 to create another enemy that captured the Western imagination and enabled the military-industrial-banking complex to continue the rape of the American taxpayer.
There are a number of storylines in the War on Terror, some get cut and remade, while others go on. The biggest storyline is the West vs. Islam narrative, which is intended to become a great Clash of Civilizations. But this Clash will not be so great, because it is totally predictable. We already know the outcome: a one world government.
4. Maintaining appearances is 90 percent of the work.
Wrestlers know the craft of illusion very well. Making the public see what is not there, and not see what is there, is a special craft that demands intellectual discipline and supreme confidence. Politicians, intelligence officials, and media professionals are also masters of this craft because they are very good at conning people. They have preserved the false narrative about the 9/11 events and war on terror for over a decade because of their constant vigilance and dedication to the craft of maintaining appearances. They cannot let their guard down for a moment because they cannot risk looking like liars and con artists.
5. The need for a villain is paramount.
The war on terror script is based on the standard good guy/bad guy formula. As in movies and wrestling, the need for villains in wars fought by democracies is paramount. It is the most important element of the CIA's war on terror script. Villains draw the people to the stadiums and theatres, and also allows them to feel better when the military drops bombs on villages and hospitals in Middle Eastern countries. Osama Bin Laden, the Taliban, Libya's Gaddafi, Syria's Assad, Hezbollah's Nasrallah, and Iran's Ahmadinejad are the main villains in the war on terror/WWIII script.
Of course, these manufactured villains are not good guys either. But they're not monsters. In fact, I hold Saddam Hussein, Gaddafi, and Assad in higher regard than the CIA, NATO, MI6, and Mossad. At least the Arab dictators wanted to build up their countries, create infrastructure, and dedicate government resources to economic development to make the lives of the people less insecure. Look at what Western banksters and NATO have done in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and Syria. They hire Islamic thugs to terrorize the people, shut down development, destroy infrastructure, and kill innocent people by the hundreds of thousands.
I view the CIA, MI6, Mossad, and NATO as the 21st century Mongols. They are barbarians who pillage, plunder, burn, and destroy in the name of their state gods: democracy and freedom.
