But among all the reports of silences observed, loved ones mourned and bravery recognised, do not expect to hear ANY criticism or questioning of the official narrative of those events. An official narrative so riddled with inconsistencies and persistently, perversely, unanswered questions, as to render its credibility on a par with the wackiest of 'Conspiracy theories'.
And what of the resulting 'War on Terror'? And those inane, infantile sound-bites trotted out in its justification?
- They hate us for our freedom.
- We're fighting them there so they don't come over here.
- Saddam Hussein supported 9/11.
- No one could've predicted they'd use planes as missiles.
- They caught us by surprise.
- The fires caused the buildings to collapse.
- Flight 93 was taken down by hero passengers.
- George Bush made us feel secure during those days.
This video sums up my feelings about latter-day America (and its British poodle) - and the narrative of the US leading an alliance of good western nations against the forces of evil in the world. The reality is that we are so self-obsessed, self-righteous and blinded by the hubris of Empire (British one lost and US one in progress) - that too many of us actually believe we have some God-given duty to require the rest of the world to see things our way - OR ELSE !!
As for questioning the official narrative of ANYTHING - forget it. After all, the State is our protector and would never do anything that was not in the best interests of its Sheeple - now would it?
