Before we begin, for those who are not intelligence specialists, these axioms must be, if not learned, at least introduced.
Behind the curtain exists a Deep State, a world super-government that will minimally influence and in most cases control national governments.
Governments are controlled to control resources, to manipulate markets through manufactured needs and shortages, through currencies, though militarization and humanity is little but fodder, tolerated only so long as it serves these efforts.
If two million are killed in Vietnam or Iraq or Afghanistan, the Deep State only counts its profits, the dead mean nothing.
Governments are fragile. Elections can be rigged, politicians purchased for a paltry sum and in a world where “everyone has a price,” anyone worth purchasing has been purchased.
Thus, every demonstration can be controlled or “turned” in some way, every government can be destabilized and today, with the power of corrupt social media monoliths and Google Corporation, a massive psychological war begins not only on nations but individuals, all individuals, who are subject to the most dangerous addiction of all, electronic devices.
After so many years, the most recent set up Middle East wars should be examined with skepticism and those involved assumed to be employees of Western intelligence agencies, faker than fake.
With the dramatic and somewhat manic and incoherent announcement by American President Donald Trump of the killing of “chief head chopper” and “super-villain,” Baghdadi, alleged head of ISIS or ISIL or Daesh, an analyst or intelligence specialist might well drown in skepticism or simply quit from frustration.
There are a thousand reasons the Baghdadi killing is fake, but top of the list is this one, there are no ISIS fighters, no facilities, no groups friendly to ISIS within hundreds of miles from where he was allegedly chased down by a dog.
Those of us who know how the US works too well, those who had worked on similar projects, are fearful for different reasons. I once spent several weeks hunting Americans in South Vietnam, so very long ago, who had commanded a Viet Cong unit, the Q84 company.
It seems more than a few American joined the Viet Cong, not pilots mind you,
