On the back of a hysterical response to attempted car bombings in the UK last week, a leaked secret U.S. law enforcement report warns of "spectacular" summer attacks while emergency alert drills spill over onto live TV and radio, as traveling Brits and Americans are served up the usual dose of fear at the height of the holiday season.
Following the discovery of two car bombs in London that would have done little more than wreck a couple of Mercedes and a bizarre incident in which a Jeep was rammed into a Glasgow Airport terminal, the UK and U.S. governments have seized upon the non-events to feed the military-industrial complex beast with the terror and fear that its survival depends on.
As ever, the media has dutifully amplified the propaganda, doing the terrorist's bidding by striking dread into the population and magnifying the severity of three dud attacks that failed to even kill the suicide bombers, never mind anyone else, and promising with an almost fevered glee that more horror is on the way.
"A secret U.S. law enforcement report, prepared for the Department of Homeland Security, warns that al Qaeda is planning a terror "spectacular" this summer, according to a senior official with access to the document."
And so this year's traveling circus of summer fearmongering sets off again, perfectly coordinated to terrorize the most amount of journey bound citizens with dark nightmares of their imminent fiery death save they prostrate themselves in obedience to the stifling security checks and flagrant abuse of any civil rights they imagined might remain as the martial law vice is tightened a little more.
Meanwhile in Illinois, citizens panic after an emergency alert signal, issued to denote a federal emergency, cuts into live programming on television and radio. A drill for what is being planned, a mandate to grease the skids for the coming terror, or just an "accident" as officials claimed?
If nothing else, a reminder that in times of a declared emergency, the feds can take over all forms of communication within an instant.
Beavis gets hosed down as he begins to realize he'll have to wait a little longer for the 72 virgins.
Was this a preparation for the inevitable attacks that we are assured are coming over the next few months?
A new wave of terror is apparently upon us we are told, all sparked by the actions of Al-Qaeda's kindergarten bomb squad, who couldn't even manage to use Google to find out that propane cylinders aren't going to produce anything other than a pretty fireball, and not an explosion, absent a decent oxidizer.
But don't concern yourself with the details, just blindly trust the authorities when they tell you that Beavis and Butthead's Cherokee airport rage heralded the 7th seal of the apocalypse and ignore the fact that these retards couldn't even manage to kill themselves.
"Police and securocrats know that there aren't enough real terrorists in the world, which is why they have to keep manufacturing them. This is because citizens tire of being watched by cameras, frisked and x-rayed, having their belongings searched, giving fingerprints to so-called friendly nations on entry, contemplating the myriad government databases where their details and activities are preserved, and wondering if some dour little bureaucrat is reading their email or listening to them on the phone."
"This should have been dismissed for what it is: an event on the level of some teenagers getting a tremendously foolish notion, and being drunk enough for it to appeal to them. But we're hearing whispers of terrorism instead - much as we heard from the Americans when they foiled a "terrorist plot" to blow up fuel storage tanks at Kennedy International. It would have been devastating, prosecutors told us. Only that "plot" had the same hole in it: air makes a lousy oxidiser. If it had been carried out, it would certainly have made a bigger fireball than the one in London would have made. But that's about it."
"So why is this such big news? Because clowns have got to be passed off as terrorists. Because a vast industry depends on terrorists, real and imagined, to justify its existence. We live now in the grip of the security-industrial complex, and that hungry beast demands to be fed. We feed it money hand over fist, and in return, it feeds us fear biscuits, which we are expected to accept with gratitude."
The reverse lionization and exaltation of Beavis and Butthead's private jihad on behalf of Gordon Brown and the rabid British and American media will achieve the goal of what they all crave - more terrorists, more copycats - when in reality these morons should be laughed at, ignored and locked up.
Butthead's demand for an attorney falls on deaf ears.
Terrorism only succeeds if the importance that is attached to it generates enough fear to fundamentally change open societies and strip them of the freedom that we are told the terrorists hate.
The definition of terrorism is, "The unlawful use or threatened use of force or violence by a person or an organized group against people or property with the intention of intimidating or coercing societies or governments , often for ideological or political reasons .
By this very definition, the hysterical frothing reaction to last week's non-events again underscores the painful truth that the government are the terrorists .
