Eating Tin-Foil Hat

{The following is an extract from an exchange on the Mopar politics forum.}

It wasn't about going after Osama bin Laden or the Taliban. It was about building a natural gas pipeline across Afghanistan that the Taliban rejected. Moreover, after 9/11, the Taliban offered to hand over OBL, providing the US offered proof that he did it. The US didn't, and the FBI still hasn't listed OBL on its most-wanted list for 9/11, because of a "lack of evidence", their words, not mine.

On the Iraq front, invasion was on the table before the neo-cons even took office. They were looking for any excuse and tried to make them complicit for 9/11. The prize was their oil fields. Another prize was also establishing a permanent military presence in the Middle East, because the Saudi's (and OBL himself) did not want US military forces in the holy lands any more. (Whatever OBL wants, OBL gets. He's one of our assets, all the way up to 9/11... and beyond his likely death probably more than a few years ago.)

All that nonsense you write about UN resolutions and Saddam being in violation? He wasn't. And in fact, he complied! He did let weapons inspectors back in before the deadline, gave them access, etc. The UN weapons inspectors themselves begged for more time. But No-oooo! Bush was going to invade Iraq for its oil fields to divy up and give to his oil crony backers no matter what.

BTW, where are those weapons of mass destruction?

Bush needed 9/11, because without it, America never would have supported invasion of Afghanistan, period. And Iraq was highly questionable as well, because Saddam was very much contained in the no-fly-zone.

Bush needed 9/11, because he needed to pave over for good-and-gone the evidence of the misdeeds of his father's administration coming due, as well as the Pentagon's unaccounted for $2.3 trillion in transactions and many other corporate criminal cases against his loyal supporters (Enron anyone?)

Bush needed 9/11, because there was insurance money to scoop up, insider trading to take advantage of, and the US economy to take down several pegs. Foreclosures and bankruptcies are bad for real people, but not for those with means who are happy to buy up for pennies on the dollar real brick-and-mortar establishments (and not silly paper stocks). Yes, I'm saying the pile-driving of our economy was planned and desired by those elite who pull Bush & Cheney's strings, because they are globalist, not patriotic nationalist (and certainly not simplistic loyal football fanatics.)
