Dateline February 02, 2009.
I feel, sitting 20,000 miles away from the events, and so close in time, that it is difficult to comprehend who is with whom, who is natural resistance to an occupying force, who is being cultivated, who is outright mercenary, and how specifically are all being harvested for the dialectical agenda of manufacturing an enemy to fight against.
It is an age old truism of imperial craftsmanship to harness, harvest, and further cultivate genuine indigenous discontent for one's own overarching agendas. Without manufacturing genuine discontent, no soil is ever fertile for one's Machiavellian craftsmanship of conquest.
And because one is so close in time to the events, analyzing such events “inescapably contains a germ of falsehood” – as Brzezinski put it in what must truly be the most publicly unacknowledged, and unread book of our times, “Between Two Ages” ( http://www.takeoverworld.info/Zbigniew_Brzezinski__Between_Two_Ages.pdf ).
I vociferously disclaim Brzezinski for his imperial mobilization quests in the service of his criminal cabal, but I do eagerly acclaim his scholarship as brilliantly superb for the depth of his diabolical social-sciences driven craftsmanship and his keen insights into the psychology and sociology of mass human behavior. And as such, I use him as my own teacher – if using the devil to teach oneself of its craft in order to neutralize it can make any sense to the pious and the holy. Not being among the latter, I have much more liberty to seek awareness than those ensconced in their mosques, temples, churches, and yes, also synagogues, waiting for 'Allah' and 'Messiah'. Brzezinski's afore-stated insight is quite obvious when one says it out loud, but not if it remains occulted behind the daily 'katputli tamashas' (puppetshows) being enacted for our benefit and we continually get intensely involved in its peculiarities losing sight of the forest for its trees. Here is the relevant passage from “Between Two Ages” – every laconic sentence is a Ph.D. thesis:
' Time and space shape our perception of reality. The specific moment and the particular setting dictate the way international estimates and priorities are defined. Sometimes, when the moment is historically "ripe," the setting and the time may coalesce to provide a special insight. A perceptive formula is easier to articulate in a moment of special stress. Conditions of war, crisis, tension are in that sense particularly fertile. The situation of crisis permits sharper value judgments, in keeping with man's ancient proclivity for dividing his reality into good and evil. (Marxist dialectic is clearly in this tradition, and it infuses moral dichotomy into every assessment.) But short of that critical condition—which in its most extreme form involves the alternatives of war or peace— global politics do not lend themselves to pat formulations and clearcut predictions, even in a setting of extensive change. As a result—in most times—it is extraordinarily difficult to liberate oneself from the confining influence of the immediate and to perceive—from a detached perspective—the broader sweep of events. The influences that condition relations among states and the broad evolution of international affairs are too various. Nonetheless, as long as we are aware that any such formulation inescapably contains a germ of falsehood— and hence must be tentative—the attempt represents an advance toward at least a partial understanding.'
Thus, instead of getting lost in the details of this deadly katputli tamasha's tactical ever-changing plot-lines and colorful actors who come and go from its stage and who are largely cultivated dialectical names without any further substance in any case, I would just highlight the following key sentences in Peter Chamberlin's analysis as the unarguable and incontestable “advance toward at least a partial understanding” through which all imperial matters come unraveled regardless of the vagaries of their covert details:
'Obama should understand what most every citizen of Pakistan understands, that the CIA is the source of most of the “terror” that comes out of that region. The CIA is also the source of the terror that our soldiers fight against. '
That alone is sufficient to re-orientate the uninitiated, the dupes, the patsies, and the unwitting scholars who only spout garbage in their reports due to ignorance and not mercenary malice, to the monumentally criminal agendas of the real mercenaries and their puppetmasters. I would however replace “CIA” with Intelligence Apparatus, of which the CIA is only the most visible component. DIA, Defense Intelligence Agency of the Pentagon, is the parent of CIA with deep pockets and black-ops budget for all the logistics and enablement of the CIA. Added to that alphabet soup are the NSA, the NRO, which monitor, eavesdrop, and manage, the satellites and telecommunications infrastructure of the world used by the CIA in its covert operations. And so on. It is also a fallacy to think that CIA is a rogue organization – an idea that is continually seeded to distract attention from their true masters. It isn't. It implements the same overarching directives which both the Executive and the Legislative of the United States implement, each according to their own compartmentalized responsibility and categorical imperative. None of these facts are unknown, rather, these are directly seeded in empiricism. The skeptic is referred to the Monetary Reform Bibliography ( http://print-humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2008/10/monetary-reform-bibliography.html ).
It is important to understand that much of Peter Chamberlin's report uses sarcastic poetic license and other literary devices which would surely make Mark Twain proud, and I hope that this fact is not lost on any reader – “Obama has begun the tedious work of separating himself from the failed policies of his predecessor. ... The Bush presidency was an aberration, a deviation from our historical path”. All of this is mere artistic license and has no basis in reality ( see “Disturbing Confirmation of the Post Modern Coup is Emerging, January 30, 2009” ). Hopefully the reader understands that it is not an appeal to Mr. Obama, nor a wishful analysis of his Presidential options. This report rather, is a forensic appeal to the world's sheeples' comatose brain-cells to awaken them.
Anyway, this is how I read this outstanding piece of dissent-writing which immediately puts to blatant and outright lie, crappola such as the following one from two-bit native informants in America's prestigious imperial Ivys who think that the world is their playground for disseminating falsehoods crafted from careful omissions: “Fata Report” http://www.ispu.org/files/PDFs/fata_report.pdf
These lauded scholars of empire sitting on awesome monthly stipends and prestigious fellowships have perhaps read too much of Huxley:
“Great is truth, but still greater, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth. By simply not mentioning certain subjects... totalitarian propagandists have influenced opinion much more effectively than they could have by the most eloquent denunciations.”
Aldous Huxley, as had Dr. Machiavelli before him, and all their disciples through eternity to present times, apparently hadn't counted on the antithetical foil also existing in the bold and courageous handful of persons who will always refuse to make Faustian pacts, and will always drive a tank through the holes in empire's fabricated narratives.
Or perhaps, more shrewdly, these scholars did indeed study Plato far more perceptively, and actually understood that genuine truth telling by the odd Socrates will always remain an uphill battle if their audience are kept eternally wrapped up in chains of manufactured deception ( http://prisonersofthecave.blogspot.com/2007/04/introduction.html ). That would certainly explain why they have pre-commandeered all media, all presses, and all communication outlets leaving us just this tiny corner to let out steam in order to gauge the effectiveness of their Huxleyan and Orwellian controls that have been foisted upon the public. But even this tiny crack, can break the egg! The commoner's reaction to reports like Peter's will tell the controllers how successful (or not) they are. So send them a message!
The author, an ordinary researcher and writer on contemporary geopolitics, a minor justice activist, grew up in Pakistan, studied EECS at MIT, engineered for a while in high-tech Silicon Valley (patents here), and retired early to pursue other responsible interests. His maiden 2003 book was rejected by six publishers and can be read on the web at http://PrisonersoftheCave.org. He may be reached at http://Humanbeingsfirst.org.
