Twelve years since the false flag atrocity of 9/11, we find the Anglo-American empire once again manufacturing false flag lies and deceptions in order to justify another attack and destruction of another nation.

The 9/11 operation, the Big Lie, created the eternal pretext for an endless “Global War on Terrorism” (GWOT) of which the conquest of Afghanistan constituted the first stage.

The GWOT and lies about weapons of mass destruction (WMD) led to the toppling and seizure of Iraq and beyond, to the continuous military provocations and the CIA-led “regime changes” in Libya and Egypt. Syria and Iran have been systematically destabilized.

But even as this murderous agenda rolls ahead with no end in sight, it fails.

Central Asia and the Middle East have been sent into chaos, nation after nation gutted, but the Empire is no closer to its goal of a petro-economic salvation or lasting geo-strategic control.

Desperate military violence and brute force do not change the fact that the days of easily recoverable oil and gas are over, and with it capitalism as usual. The world economy shows no sign of lasting recovery, and severe internal stress. The US government is bankrupt, financially as well as morally, while the disillusionment of the American populace grows.

The Empire flounders in the violent trap it has created for itself.

The “war on terrorism” itself has fallen apart. Its own criminal functionaries have lost control of the narrative as well as on the ground.
