DECLASSIFIED MEMO: Top Military Leaders Wanted 911-Like Event to Shape Public Opinion on Terror-War

October 2, 2012

by Debbie & William Lewis
Take Back Washington

It is said that history repeats itself, unless we learn from it. Was the “War on Terrorism” incited by lessons not learned in US History? Some say yes.

In March of 1962, the highest-ranking officers of each branch of the military, known more popularly as the Joint Chiefs of Staff, proposed a risky plan that would forever change the landscape of diplomatic international relations and forever cast doubt on a government willing to subvert its laws, and stage-manage its sovereigns.


The Northwoods Document, as it is now called, was not executed at the time of its inception. However, it was never forgotten. The document outlines step-by-step plans on how to mislead the American public into a full-scale war on terrorism and decisive invasion of Cuba. Top military leaders proposed all this and more in the name of spreading democracy and restoring free government to the impoverished people of a desolate land. Does any of this sound familiar?

Speaking on the Northwoods Document in the documentary “One Nation Under Siege,” Dave vonKleist of The Power Hour radio program uses logic and reasoning to propose some very tough questions about our current federal government and their collectively corrupt state-of-mind. If the Joint Chiefs had a plan on paper 50 years ago to substitute aircraft and shoot one down in order to manipulate public opinion, is it possible that they would do that in today’s world?

The plan, as proposed by the Joint Chiefs, suggests that a U.S.A.F. airliner be painted and disguised as a commercial passenger plane and converted to an unmanned remote controlled drone or UAV as they are known in today’s terminology. Mock passengers would board an alternate plane under carefully prepared aliases. The empty copy-cat-commercial plane would eventually be shot down where eyewitnesses would be available to observe, report and perpetuate the official government version of the story.

The Northwoods Document is extremely explicit and well thought out. Every detail and possible scenario is anticipated – complete with solutions and cover stories. Other tactics include blowing up U.S. military vessels, potentially near a harbor entrance and conducting mock funerals for the “victims” in order to generate a public outcry against the terrorists. Hijacking and crashing planes, fake terror campaigns, and the use of high explosives on U.S. military installations are but a few of the macabre strategies suggested by the Joint Chiefs to further push the war-buttons of unsuspecting, but very compliant, Americans.

Director William Lewis expands on this area of thought by reminding us that on the morning of September 11, 2001 Fox News interviewed one of its own employees who was a witness to the second tower jet strike. Mr. Mark Burnback stated that the alleged commercial airliner “had no windows on the side.” The Fox News anchorperson then suggested that perhaps this was not a commercial aircraft after all. Mr. Lewis goes on to mention there were other witnesses testifying to this fact on other networks, as well. Burnback’s testimony can be heard in director Lewis’ earlier documentary “911 In Plane Site,” the first September 11 expose’ to show collections of news footage from the first few hours of the attack. The official version of September 11 quickly disintegrates under careful scrutiny and the observance of basic logic.

As Former Major General Albert Stubblebine put it… “What’s going on?” It is our duty, as Americans, to require accountability for what is happening both here and abroad. With last years passage of the reauthorization of the USA PATRIOT Act, our perpetual “War on Terrorism,” the ever-mounting deaths of our sons and daughters in a war that is clearly not ours, and our escalating loss of liberties, Americans MUST finally realize that our system of government has been permanently contaminated by the lust and greed of men who have way too much power and too little regard for the U.S. Bill of Rights.

It is time for Americans to become vigilant in this “War on Terrorism” or they may find that the price for unchecked complacency is merciless slavery. Remember the old saying, “people get the government that they deserve?”

Italy Plans to Ban Any Cash Transactions Over 50 Euros

Silver Doctors

You won’t even be able to fill up your car without a credit or debit card in Italy beginning in 2013, as the Italian Council of Ministers has voted to increase the current capital controls banning the use of cash on transactions over €1,000, down to any transaction over €50!

As we stated when Italy first announced capital controls and caps on cash transactions several months ago, expect bans on cash transactions to be coming to a neighborhood near you in the next 2-3 years.

Courtesy Google Translate:

Rome – The technical Rome government wants to limit cash transactions in Italy.

From 2013, citizens may pay amounts in excess of 50 euros only by credit or debit card. That the Council of Ministers decided today.

The measure is intended to reflect the money laundering and black money payments to clamp down. Since July, the government has banned cash transactions over 1,000 euros.

State of Denial: The 9/11 Festival of War

September 14, 2011

Andrew McKillop
21st Century Wire
September 14, 2011

Ceremonies in the USA, Europe and in other regions and countries where 9/11 business is taken seriously have, with time, shifted focus. The annual show of gravitas and determination to fight and win the War on Terror, cranked up on back of the New York and Washington attacks of September 2001, has a new objective:  deflecting, parrying and diluting a scary future.

FESTIVAL OF WAR

Trends forecasters will all tell you that future looks bad and the economy looks even worse. But George W. Bush and Barack Obama still stand together, united to fight evil, with a show of force at Ground Zero. As anyone can guess, putting white ribbons in the hair of US schoolchildren is more newsworthy(and cheaper) than treating cancer victims from the tens of thousands of tons of asbestos, insecticides and dioxin that spewed out as the Twin Towers, and building WTC 7(untouched by any airplane) dramatically crashed to the ground in seconds.

Public solidarity and national pride are important at this dangerous time, hence, 9/11 festivities have been internationalized with an  attempt being made- like attempts in Europe and Japan, to import the US Halloween-style festival and to capitalize on its commercial spin-offs. For the 9/11 ‘festival of hope’, the goal is justifying the military invasions and occupations of both Afghanistan and Iraq. This new war festival however generates nothing in revenues and costs vast sums of public cash on an unwinnable war – an exact remake of the Soviet Union’s lost war in Afghanistan – proving that other people can be just as stupid as the Soviets.

Never mind the blowback of pure hatred against the west that the 9/11 farce generates right across the Muslim world and south Asia. What counts is the official, reassuring and idiot-friendly version of “what really happened” in New York and Washington in Sept 2001. This is now a mass market comfort theme, belted out by all mainstream media and is a precious link with a receding and different past.

FEAR OF THE FUTURE

In September 2011 the US political, corporate and media elites and their European fellow travellers- call them running dogs or yippy poodles, have saturated world media with all-day-long special reports on the Atrocity of the Century. Time is also shrewdly allocated for marginalizing skeptics, or “truthers”. Shame on you, if you don’t believe.

The real focus has changed however:

9/11 is now a strange mixture of alternate reality and new religion.

9/11 is now the official way to forget the present and future of debts, deficits, unemployment and economic crises – if only for an excruciatingly long weekend.

9/11's ten year anniversary has morphed into a morbid "festival of war" for the US and the world.

For the American economy – and most other developed economies, from the European Union to Japan – the real crisis is the amount of money paid to commercial bankers and insurers over the last four years. What happened to it? Will Greece collapse, taking Europe’s banks with it, like a collapsing Twin Tower as the fires of its sovereign debt light the higher floors of the Tower of Doom?

For American banks, filings to the US Securities and Exchange Commission show that the bailout sums handed to them by G W Bush and Barry Obama now stands, in September 2011, at an astounding $2 200 billion, or $2.2 trillion, racked up in a little more than 4 years. European commercial banks have received less well-defined, better hidden bailouts from public funds, but likely amounts to September 2011 are probably $ 1.75 trillion; Japan’s ruined banks have received more than $ 750 billion.

Still, all the banks will require more, a lot more. This is because, like the 9/11 fantasy, the show has to go on. The serial rout of banks and their related and dependent insurance companies, brokers and investment houses will continue. Extrapolating over the coming decade and only for the USA, the total amounts to be taken by the financial sector, led by the banks, will approach over $5 trillion.

Yet, no European, Japanese or American political decider, either in power or in opposition, so terribly and publicly concerned about 9/11 once a year, shows any sign of being willing to cut future debt-driven bailouts for private banks. This will inevitably produce further and deeper government deficits.

This stubborn refusal to face reality can be compared with the child-like official belief the Twin Towers and WTC 7 fell down almost instantly due to burning jet fuel and “all by themselves”. Ignoring reality and denying the future, the critical banking crisis is also another whipped-dog attempt to not admit failure and muddle through another day. Doing this, increasingly surely, the ultimate economic catastrophe becomes possible: the collapse of all world moneys, the complete implosion of the global economy. Real war would almost certainly follow – not playacting with bearded hermits in Afghan caves and drone attacks on Yemenite brigands, Pakistani goatherders and bandits – but even the playact War on Terror does not come cheap.

WAR AND DEBT

For the USA, the ultimate big spender on supposedly small surgical conflicts and humanitarian interventions “over the horizon”, the amounts spent are relatively well known: probable US war spending in the 10 years since 2001 totals between $ 2.2 and $ 2.8 trillion – much less than the banks have been able to siphon, in the last 3 years.

The ugly truth of this matter is that none of this cash can be invested in protecting US jobs, building roads, schools, factories, hospitals, offices, public transport or any other long-term projects. Public cash is showered on the financial, defense sectors, and overseas contracts creating a few high cost jobs but in general this money is directly transferred from spending in the real economy, to the shadow economy of bank executives, employees and shareholders, off-shore holding companies and our clean fingernailed Indiana Jones heroes killing villagers and rendering taxi drivers somewhere over the horizon.

While the bank executives come out as big winners, this is not at all the case for bank employees faced with recurring and massive redundancy programs, nor for bank shareholders, or the average grunt soldier. Real bank and finance sector share values in the USA, Europe and Japan are again in free fall, tumbling in unison, by 33 percent to more than 65 percent in the 5 weeks from August 1st, 2011 to the present.

More transfers – politely called “bank recapitalization” – will soon be needed. These transfers represent a cunning tax on everyone else, whether private citizen and consumers or economically active entities.

Most incredibly, these are rich rewards for those “players” who helped cause, and then intensify today’s financial and economic troubles that affect all countries of the developed world. This tiny percentage (well below 5 percent) of all persons and all economic entities in the affected countries is the only class that is not suffering from the crisis they have caused – and in many cases the perpetrators of the crime are massively benefiting from the aggravation of the global crisis.

Their operating mode and methods can seem puzzling in many respects. Combining some aspects of classic and crude Ponzi chain letter scams, with large and sophisticated compensation schemes for their partners (notably in the insurance sector), masking the risks of supposedly low-probability, high-impact “Black Swan” events with complex multi-stage financial instruments, these inveterate but losing gamblers have only one backstop.

At all times they count on implicit public guarantees. When things get worse, they ask for more.

The military and security services, whether the US Army or the new Afghan Army supposedly loyal to Hamid Karzai, whether the USA’s FBI and CIA or France’s DGSE and the UK’s MI5 and MI6 are all similar in the dependence on the public purse. When things get worse – they also ask for more. Using the financial analogy of leverage rather than skills, of pouring oil on fires already burning, then demanding public money to quench the fires and calm the rout, the defence and security establishment has only mimicked the blackmailing scam of failed financial gamblers.

RISK AND REWARD

As we know, the corporate kleptocracy which operates the world’s biggest banks and insurance companies has a simple strategy: privatize the profits and offload the losses to anybody else, meaning governments and taxpayers. Simply because of this, all central banks and monetary authorities have no choice at all but to keep interest rates at artificially low levels. Both publicly, and secretly they give  loans at extreme low rates of interest to the banks, like obedient poodles.

The defense and security mafias, establishment or sector operates a strategy of self preservation and profiteering that is also simple. Without war, it cannot continue to grow, but war is no longer possible with new, potential, and very dangerous enemies such as China and India, and other large well-armed nations – able to hit back devastatingly hard. War must now be targeted at small countries with small armies – and of course no nuclear weapons. The search for enemies is also brought back home, inside the home countries of this evil doctrine, creating the police state at war with its own population.

Since 2001, the search for, and manufacture of new enemies has been crowned with success. The reward for the defence and security elites is immense: although well behind the grab made by the banking elites, the equivalent of around $2.5 trillion dollars has been spent by the US alone in a single decade on fantasist and unreal enemies, without ever facing any armed forces able to hit back with deadly force. What could be more courageous and progressive?

For the banking and financial mafia, like the defense and security establishment, the risk of massive or total loss was always hidden, always denied. But with another hollow celebration of the 9/11 farce, and another intensification of the European and US banking and debt crises, the potential for total loss on all fronts rises, yet again. For private bankers and insurers, brokers and exchange operators who systematically lied about the risks of their 24/7 gambling spree, and the defense and security mafia who promote the lie about 9/11 and the risk of “asymmetric” wars – we have moved so close to the precipice that denying this reality is harder and harder, each and every day.

THE GOD AGENCY: C.I.A. Demands Cuts in Book to Rewrite History on 9/11

August 26, 2011

By Scott Shane
August 26, 2011

In what amounts to a fight over who gets to write the history of the Sept. 11 attacks and their aftermath, the Central Intelligence Agency is demanding extensive cuts from the memoir of a former F.B.I. agent who spent years near the center of the battle against Al Qaeda.

The agent, Ali H. Soufan, argues in the book that the C.I.A. missed a chance to derail the 2001 plot by withholding from the F.B.I. information about two future 9/11 hijackers living in San Diego, according to several people who have read the manuscript. And he gives a detailed, firsthand account of the C.I.A.’s move toward brutal treatment in its interrogations, saying the harsh methods used on the agency’s first important captive, Abu Zubaydah, were unnecessary and counterproductive.

THE GOD AGENCY: Over the decades, the agency has developed a 'god' complex, now they want to write their own history on 911.

Neither critique of the C.I.A. is new. In fact, some of the information that the agency argues is classified, according to two people who have seen the correspondence between the F.B.I. and C.I.A., has previously been disclosed in open Congressional hearings, the report of the national commission on 9/11 and even the 2007 memoir of George J. Tenet, the former C.I.A. director.

Mr. Soufan, an Arabic-speaking counterterrorism agent who played a central role in most major terrorism investigations between 1997 and 2005, has told colleagues he believes the cuts are intended not to protect national security but to prevent him from recounting episodes that in his view reflect badly on the C.I.A.

Some of the scores of cuts demanded by the C.I.A. from Mr. Soufan’s book, “The Black Banners: The Inside Story of 9/11 and the War Against Al Qaeda,” seem hard to explain on security grounds.

Among them, according to the people who have seen the correspondence, is a phrase from Mr. Soufan’s 2009 testimony at a Senate hearing, freely available both as video and transcript on the Web. Also chopped are references to the word “station” to describe the C.I.A.’s overseas offices, common parlance for decades.

The agency removed the pronouns “I” and “me” from a chapter in which Mr. Soufan describes his widely reported role in the interrogation of Abu Zubaydah, an important terrorist facilitator and training camp boss. And agency officials took out references to the fact that a passport photo of one of the 9/11 hijackers who later lived in San Diego, Khalid al-Midhar, had been sent to the C.I.A. in January 2000 — an episode described both in the 9/11 commission report and Mr. Tenet’s book.

In a letter sent Aug. 19 to the F.B.I.’s general counsel, Valerie E. Caproni, a lawyer for Mr. Soufan, David N. Kelley, wrote that “credible sources have told Mr. Soufan that the agency has made a decision that this book should not be published because it will prove embarrassing to the agency.”

In a statement, Mr. Soufan called the C.I.A’s redactions to his book “ridiculous” but said he thought he would prevail in getting them restored for a later edition.

He said he believed that counterterrorism officers have an obligation to face squarely “where we made mistakes and let the American people down.” He added: “It saddens me that some are refusing to address past mistakes.”

A spokeswoman for the C.I.A., Jennifer Youngblood, said, “The suggestion that the Central Intelligence Agency has requested redactions on this publication because it doesn’t like the content is ridiculous. The C.I.A.’s pre-publication review process looks solely at the issue of whether information is classified.”

She noted that under the law, “Just because something is in the public domain doesn’t mean it’s been officially released or declassified by the U.S. government.”

A spokesman for the F.B.I., Michael P. Kortan, declined to comment.

The book, written with the assistance of Daniel Freedman, a colleague at Mr. Soufan’s New York security company, is scheduled to go on sale Sept. 12. Facing a deadline this week, the publisher, W. W. Norton and Company, decided to proceed with a first printing incorporating all the C.I.A.’s cuts.

If Mr. Soufan ultimately prevails in negotiations or a legal fight to get the excised material restored, Norton will print the unredacted version, said Drake McFeely, Norton’s president. “The C.I.A.’s redactions seem outrageous to me,” Mr. McFeely said. But he noted that they are concentrated in certain chapters and said “the book’s argument comes across clearly despite them”…

War Inc – Inside the Pentagon’s Psychological Operation to Suck the Masses into Their War Machine

August 15, 2011

By Alexander Higgins
August 15, 2011

From games to movies, the Pentagon spends billions to entice the American youth into giving up their lives in the name of military service.

As the U.S. economy remains on a consistent downward spiral, one thing the U.S. Government is never shy to invest endless cash in is the Pentagon. While the masses suffer pension cutbacks, 46 million Americans live off food stamps  and Americans across the nation are relegated to living in “tent city” homeless camps the government pumps trillions of dollars into illegal perpetual wars. Perhaps even more inexcusable is the the pumping millions of dollars into luring in the young population of America into enrolling into the military, all to support the political corruption of globalist’s international banking cartel.

RT’s Anastasia Churkina looks at some of those mesmerizing techniques, and what kind of effect they have had on those fit to serve

Here’s another example of how the war machine’s propaganda is being used to target our children…

                      Mike Huckabee’s 9/11 Cartoon Movie

Curious how the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history will be taught to future generations? Here’s a clue via presidential candidate Huckabee, who’s hawking an educational 9/11 cartoon at $9.95 a pop. No mention of the two wars we entered into in the aftermath or even Osama bin Laden’s stated reason for the attacks (the presence of U.S. troops in Saudi Arabia). Refinery29 writes:

“There’s now a 9/11 cartoon movie courtesy of Mike Huckabee, co-founder of Learn Our History, a for-profit company whose mission is to get kids excited and educated about history. The first initiative, an animated DVD series, has flicks on subjects like the American Revolution, and, perhaps more tellingly, “The Reagan Revolution.” The September 11th cartoon really explains, according to the literature, “How the ongoing War on Terror protects Americans at home and American ideals abroad.”

Norway Hate Attacks Make Anti-Islam Taboo Cause as Labor Surges

August 4, 2011

By Josiane Kremer
Bloomberg
Aug 3, 2011

Anders Behring Breivik’s efforts to galvanize anti-Islam sentiment in Norway after last month’s hate killings have given the ruling party he sought to destroy its biggest tailwind in more than a decade.

Support for Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg’s Labor Party, targeted by Breivik in the July 22 bombing and shootings that left 77 dead, soared to more than 40 percent, two polls showed this week. If a vote were held today, that would be the best result since the 1985 election. Approval of Stoltenberg’s handling of the crisis is at more than 90 percent, polls show.

“It’s the first time in Norway that the popularity rating of an elected politician is higher than that of the King,” said Frank Aarebrot, a politics professor at the University of Bergen, in a phone interview. Since the attacks, Labor’s policies mean it enjoys “the strongest legitimacy. My guess is that the effect will last a couple of years.”

Breivik’s 1,500-page manifesto, published a few hours before his killing spree, railed against the “Islamization” of Norway and Europe, a trend he said he would try to halt through his terror acts. Yet the anti-immigration Progress Party that Breivik had sought to champion now faces a backlash as a key campaigning point is stigmatized ahead of local elections on Sept. 12. That’s left the group, Parliament’s second-biggest, with an identity crisis.

‘Low Profile’

“They will try to keep a low profile on immigration, immigrants, threats from the Muslims,” Anders Todal Jenssen, a political science professor at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, said by phone. Without the attacks “they would have focused on immigration as a very important issue,” he said.

Backing for Labor, which was re-elected in 2009 on pledges to improve welfare without raising taxes, surged 11 percentage points in the month through July 30 to 41.7 percent, the highest result since September 1998, according to a Synovate poll. A TNS Gallup poll for TV2 showed a 9.2 point rise in support for Labor to 40.5 percent, a 12-year high. The opposition Conservatives slipped almost five points to 23.7 percent in the Synovate poll, while the Progress Party, of which Breivik was a member from 1999 to 2004, dropped three points to 16.5 percent.

Since the killings, more Norwegians say they now embrace multiculturalism, according to an Aug. 1 InFact AS poll published by Verdens Gang. Twenty-six percent of those questioned said they were more positive toward a multi-ethnic Norway than before the attacks. Nine percent were more negative and 49 percent said they hadn’t changed their opinion.

‘Lost Its Legitimacy’

“The anti-Islam argument has lost its legitimacy,” said Johannes Bergh, a political scientist at the Institute for Social Research in Oslo, in a phone interview. “You can’t make the type of arguments that the Progress Party has been making in terms of Islam being a danger to society or a threat to Norwegian culture. You just can’t say that anymore.”

The prime minister’s party is now poised to win next month’s local elections. Polls before July 22 had shown it was set to lose.

Stoltenberg isn’t the first leader to see his approval ratings rise following attacks against his citizens. Support for former U.S. President George W. Bush jumped to 90 percent after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, according to Gallup. Backing later fell below 30 percent at the end of his second term.

Stoltenberg has won admiration from voters for avoiding traps that risk polarizing the debate in Norway. He has even urged lawmakers and media not to vilify anti-immigration policies.

‘Witch Hunt’

“We should not start a witch hunt against those opinions that we don’t agree with,” he told reporters on Aug. 1.

Bush, by contrast, in 2001 pledged to hunt down those responsible for the September attacks, and said he wanted Osama bin Laden “dead or alive.”

Siv Jensen, who as the leader of Norway’s Progress Party has warned of “sneak-Islamization,” said Breivik’s attacks shouldn’t silence the immigration debate.

“In the time that lies ahead, we need even more freedom of expression,” Jensen said in an Aug. 1 interview. “It is important to me that we all can combine freedom of expression with dignity and I think we will manage that, even if it is a new terrain for us.”

Still, the party may need to modify its tone in the debate, Jensen told reporters this week.

Immigration

“We’ve all changed our behavior and we won’t be the same as before,” Jensen said.

Before Breivik’s attacks, the Progress Party had risen in popularity as voters, like their Nordic peers in Sweden, Denmark and Finland, reacted to a rising intake of immigrants.

Norway received the second-highest number of new asylum- seekers per inhabitant after Sweden last year, according to a survey of 44 industrialized nations by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Non-western immigrants and their children last year accounted for 9.4 percent of Norway’s population. In Germany, non-western immigrants made up 6 percent, data from the national statistics offices of each country show.

Voters upset with this trend should be free to say so, Stoltenberg told reporters on July 27.

“We have to be very clear to distinguish between extreme views, which are completely legal and legitimate,” he said. “What is not legitimate is to try to implement those extreme views by using violence.”

NORWAY MASSACRE CATALYST FOR REALIGNMENT OF EUROPEAN RIGHT WING MOVEMENTS

July 29, 2011

By Patrick Henningsen
21st Century Wire
July 29, 2011

The Norway Massacre has grabbed the lion’s share headlines around the world, but not solely due to the human tragedy element of the event. A larger ripple effect is because Anders Breivik’s allegedly authored a 1,500 page idealogical “manifesto”, one which is currently being dissected by the media, political institutions, law enforcement and academics throughout Europe and contains the new seeds for an extemist Far Right movement.

What is important to note here is that the conclusions and perceptions drawn from his modus operandi will have a fundamental effect of the position of Far Right and Left Wing extremist movements in the near future.

Both genuine terrorist and false flag terror events will always redefine the genre. There exist many different definitions of “terrorism”, most have these contain premeditated, politically motivated violence or the threat of violence, targeting civilians, being perceived as a non-state actor, all in the hopes of “sending a message” to the general public or a government.

We’ve already established that the mass shooting in Norway was no mere random attack, as those student victims were specifically targeted, making it a clear case of political assassination on a mass scale not seen before in recent history. By anyone’s measure, such an event can be classed as a “game changer” in terms extremist political agendas.

In this case, it was the Young Protestant Labour Party of Norway, who only days before publicly condemned Israel’s apartheid system, opting instead to recognized a bona fide Palestine State. Politically, Norway was poised for a complete withdraw of any support for Israel, including divestment and academic boycotts . Breivik responded with a violent massacre of that party’s future generation. 

Hence, Anders Breivik has not been classified as a terrorist in the vain of an Al Qaeda or an IRA, rather he has already been labeled by the media as a Right Wing “political extremist”.

What is traditional Right Wing Extremism? The old board looked as follows: nationalism, racism, anti-immigration and xenophobia, fascism and a strong self-sufficient state. As a result, of the many-sided concept of ‘right wing’, it consists of many different factions, groups and organizations. The same can be said for the Left Wing.

So is Europe returning to the days when its cities and towns were being ravaged by a cacophony of real terror and state sponsored terror groups like NATO’s own Operation GLADIO, The Red Brigades, IRA, Red Army Faction, Action Directe, Black September, and the PLFP?

Out of that chaos came order. Are we looking at a new, reordering of the political landscape, a New Order? In Europe, as in the wider world, it certainly looks that way, and big changes are afoot.

The European Common Market and Union was introduced by European elite bureaucrats in order to attain stability and forge new alliances. Following the Cold War and the tumbling of the Berlin Wall, the EU came in with a bang and enjoyed a brief honeymoon up until the long, protracted recession which became evident in 2007. Currently, the once solid Eurozone is  fraying at the edges, as the International banks have been preying shamelessly on many of its fledgling economies, including Greece, Ireland, Spain, Portugal, Poland and Iceland. The result of this economic trend is a marginalisation of the middle class and the ever-widening gap between the lower classes and the financial and bureaucratic elite.

This of course, is a recipe for fomenting the worst aspects of Right Wing extremism, as well as Left Wing- in case anyone hasn’t noticed, previously banished anarchists are currently back in fashion in Greece and Spain. Breivik’s manifesto, like it or not, will be a centre of influence, particularly for young Right Wing foot soldiers, for the sad reason that they will be inspired by his armed action and bravado. Interestingly enough, Breivik’s supposed support of Israel and Zionism will garner sympathy from previously stringent anti-Jewish Neo Nazi affiliates, and this is potentially the most massive shift on the chess board of the Far Right. Pro-Israeli Right Wing extremists and Neo Nazis.

Although at its early stages, recent events like this will have a massive impact in the near future and should be monitored. These shifts in alliances and groups will also be fueled by the mainstream media’s typically lazy and surface-oriented take on events and political score keeping. All the while, real changes brew under their radar.

Far right politics also push the belief that both superiority and inferiority is an innate reality between individuals and groups, normally rejecting the liberal tenet of social equality. Extremists often support segregation, like we have seen with Breivik’s reaction against multiculturalism. This is not surprising from the right, and although Europe enjoyed a brief respite from its ugly head over the last 20 years, the destruction of the economy and the state’s eventual inability to deliver its social benefits to the growing ranks of unemployed will certainly allow the xenophobic card its chance to return to the political table.

On many levels, this is a recipe for civil unrest in Europe, and many activists will unfortunately be looking for the greatest impact- or the biggest bang for their buck. Breivik succeeded here- hitting his ideological enemies in the heart.

What this space, watch the moves on the political chess board.

NORWAY GUNMAN BREIVIK COULD BE PUT IN MENTAL INSTITUTION IF FOUND INSANE SAYS EXPERT

Anders Behring Breivik, the principal suspect in the twin terror attacks in Norway last Friday, may undergo compulsory medical treatment following a medical examination, a Swedish law expert said on Wednesday.

Lawyer Bernt Birkeland said if the medical exam proves that Breivik was insane, he would be put into a mental institution for compulsory treatment, but if he was mentally stable he could be sentenced to life in prison.

INSANITY PLEA? Breivik could be institutionalised if deemed insane by court.

Breivik’s lawyer, Geir Lippestad, said on Tuesday that “this whole case indicated that he [Breivik] is insane.”

Norwegian Prosecutor Christian Hatlo said on Tuesday that if charged with crimes against humanity, Breivik could face up to 30 years in prison. In line with the laws in Norway, a court’s verdict could be revised as many times as possible and therefore the prison sentence could be prolonged as well.

During a closed hearing at a Norwegian court on Monday, Breivik, 32, admitted to carrying out a bombing in Oslo that killed seven people, and a mass shooting at a Labor Party youth camp on the nearby island of Utoya.

Police have now revised the death toll from both attacks from 93 to 76.

The Norwegian Telegraph Bureau reported on Wednesday that Brevik was a member of a gun club in Oslo between 2005 and 2007 and from June 2010 until recently.
