Michel Chossudovsky: The Military Roadmap to World War III !
A problem for many citizens is that "doublethink and mind control" have become so deeply embedded and disseminated by the mass media, including the so-called quality free press, such as The New York Times and The Guardian. Allegedly sponsored by Al Qaeda, the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon played a central role in molding public opinion. One of the main objectives of war propaganda is to "fabricate an enemy". The "outside enemy" personified by Osama bin Laden is "threatening America". Pre-emptive war directed against "Islamic terrorists" is required to defend the Homeland. Realities are turned upside down: America is under attack. In the wake of 9/11, the creation of this "outside enemy" served to obfuscate the real economic and strategic objectives behind the American-led wars in the Middle East and Central Asia. Waged on the strategic objectives behind the American-led wars in the Middle East and Central Asia. On the grounds of self-defense, the pre-emptive war is upheld as a "just war" with a humanitarian mandate. From the outset of the Soviet-Afghan war in the early 1980s, the US intelligence apparatus has created its own terrorist organizations, and at the same time, it creates its own terrorist warnings concerning the terrorist organizations which it has itself created. Meanwhile, a cohesive multi-billion dollar counter-terrorism program "to go after" these terrorist organizations has been put in place. Instead of "war" or "state terrorism", we are told of "humanitarian intervention" directed against "terrorists". Instead of "offence", we are told of "defense" or "protection", Instead of "mass murder" we are told of "collateral damage".
