The Illusion: Osama Bin Laden's Death
The Death of Osama Changes Nothing. . .
Recent news of the death of Osama Bin Laden changes nothing for the world of American politics and economics. The naivety of the human race never ceases to amaze me to this day. To think, that many cling to the illusion that but one man was the cause of all their problems, and that his death will somehow prove to be a panacea. Without a doubt, tyrants the worlds over are envious of the distraction and woolen sheet that has been pulled over the consciousness of every American.
Osama's reported death doesn't change the fact he was a CIA asset, who most likely died of kidney failure soon after the September 11, 2001, attacks. Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf said Bin Laden had kidney disease, and that he had required a dialysis machine when he lived in Afghanistan. That same year, the FBI’s top counterterrorism official, Dale Watson, said, "I personally think he is probably not with us anymore." It's very unlikely that someone in Osama's medical condition, while on the run and living in caverns, could have possibly survived for up to ten years.
By late December 2002, the Pakistani military captured a high profiled Taliban leader, and close friend of Osama Bin Laden, that told the Pakistan Observer that Bin Laden was suffering from a serious lung complication and died in mid-December, in the vicinity of the Tora Bora mountains.
Throughout the years, there's been a few occasions where Osama's death has been inadvertently reported. In February, 2004, Iranian state radio claimed Osama bin Laden had been captured in Pakistan’s border region with Afghanistan "a long time ago." This matches the 2002 report done by President Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan and approved by Watson, but shortly after the radio announcement Pentagon and Pakistani officials backpedaled and denied the report. "Osama bin Laden has been arrested a long time ago, but Bush is intending to use it for propaganda maneuvering in the presidential election," the radio report said.
The same year, during the 2004 election, CNN reported that Democratic insiders had been told that George W. Bush was going to use Bin Laden's body as a gimmick if he thought he was in danger of losing the 2004 election.
It's all too convenient that after the death of Osama from the apparent U.S.A military led raid of a house in Pakistan, that we have yet to see an actual body. You would think that after all the controversy, conspiracies, and conflicting stories regarding Osama Bin Laden's death, they would show us a body and commit to a live video recorded autopsy. Instead, we've been told that the body of Osama Bin Laden has been disposed at sea by the U.S.A Navy. Perhaps this is because if the body were examined, scientists would discover that we have a frozen and embalmed body of up to at least eight years?
Osama's Death Doesn't Change the Economy
Regardless of whether you believe Obama's story on how Osama's death came to fruition, none of this changes the economic realities that Americans face. None of this changes the fact that the real unemployment rate amongst Americans is hovering somewhere around 25% and shows no signs of recovering. None of this changes the fact that of the 75% that are employed, at least half of them are working under 25 hours a week and suffer from a case of underemployment. None of this changes the fact America would need to create up to 130,000 new jobs each and every month just to meet the growing population demands. None of this changes the fact that of the few jobs being created, most are in lowly paid service sector jobs. Currently the jobs seeing the highest growth are retail cashiers, customer service representatives, bartenders, and nursing aides.
Osama's death doesn't change the fact that the IMF predicted China would surpass America in economic strength come 2016. Osama's death doesn't change the fact that America's manufacturing base has shrunk by 75% just the past fifteen years alone all due to off shoring and that those jobs are never coming back. Osama's death doesn't change the fact that America is dealing with a 252 billion dollar trade deficit with China in the year of 2010 alone. Osama's death doesn't change the fact that China is in the process of liquidating its holdings of U.S. Treasury securities since last October, according to a report updated today by the U.S. Treasury Department.
Osama's death won't stop the Federal Reserve from printing tons of useless money, essentially devaluing the U.S dollar to that of Zimbabwe fiat currency. Osama's death won't make Ben Bernanke come to his senses, and raise interest rates to deal with inflation, instead he will continue to have interests' rates around 1% so a debt culture resumes. Osama's death didn't change the fact that no more than a few weeks ago, gold and silver hit 30 year record highs, and that long term nothing will stop silver and gold from reaching the moon. The death of Osama Bin Laden won't reduce the cost of crude oil come December 2011 through to the winter of 2012. Once we're all off the spring/summer festival fever fest and hangover of Osama's death, expect oil prices to increase during that time period when the cold reality of winter hits Americans. Expect to see loaves of bread priced at unbelievable levels. Expect to see grocery shelves getting empty.
Osama's death doesn't change the fact that our social security pyramid scheme will essentially bankrupt an entire generation. Osama's death doesn't change the fact that not only do corporations like General Electric refuse to pay taxes, but they have actually significantly benefited from government subsidies. Osama's death won't make rich people finally pay their taxes. Osama's death won't cut funding to useless government programs. Osama's death won't bring back all the trillions of dollars stolen from the people via government funded bailouts to fraudulent bankers, essentially making you a slave. Osama's death won't change the fact the U.S.A government had to increase it's debt threshold. Osama's death won't make the U.S.A national debt of $14, 297, 740, 402, 845 as of May 2nd, 2011, 12:00pm EST, while I'm writing this article, disappear out of thin air. For the record, that debt load is roughly $46,000 per citizen.
Osama's death won't make the foreclosures stop, and the consequences of toxic sub-prime mortgage loans, continue to dwindle the livelihoods of your communities. Osama's death won't save people from drowning in student loans debt at a nation wide rate of $3000 per second, essentially sentencing people to a life of serfdom, as they pay money into a bottomless pit, in a world with no jobs to offer. Osama's death won't put an end to the deadly consequences of the college bubble.
Osama's death won't put all the criminals responsible for all that has happened, such as the Rothchilds, J.P Morgan and Robert Diamond behind bars. Osama's death won't bring to justice the people responsible for the financial sacrilege.
Osama's Death Doesn't Change the Brutality of War
Osama's death doesn't change the fact the war on Afghanistan is a farce. A vehicle used to construct an oil pipeline all for the benefit of big oil companies. Osama's death still means American soldiers will be used as cannon fodder to protect opium fields, so the corporate drug overlords of big pharmaceutical companies profit off drugging up and dulling of our children in schools.
Osama's death doesn't hide the crimes against humanity committed in Iraq. Osama's death doesn't change the fact that over 1 million innocent Iraqis have been murdered at the hands of barbarous American soldiers, hell bent on following illegal orders. Osama's death doesn't change the fact that it's a holocaust.
Osama's death doesn't change the fact that America is now committed to a suspect invasion of Libya. And all for what?! It's a war started for oil. It's a war started because Qaddafi refused to build a world bank. It's a war started because Qaddafi wished to back a gold Dinar and ditch the USA dollar as crude oil's reserve currency. It's a war started because Qaddafi wished to start a version of the African Union outside that of the United Nations.
Osama's death doesn't change the fact that America, despite being drowned in a sea of debt, is sending approximately 9.9 billion in yearly foreign military aid to Israel. Money used not to wage war, but to massacre a mostly defenceless people and to enforce a brutal occupation, all in the name of a pathetic belief that we should worship a master race of "God's chosen people". Osama's death doesn't change the fact that Israel's illegally funded occupation by America isn't about stopping Hamas, isn't about stopping terrorism, isn't about stopping rocket fire into Israel, and isn't about achieving peace. The Israeli use of white phosphorous to enforce the occupation on a largely defenceless civilian population is all part of a decades long campaign to dislocate, humiliate, and ethnically cleanse Palestinians. It's about building ringed Palestinian enclaves similar to that of the Warsaw ghetto, all in the goal of perpetuating misery. Osama's death doesn't change the fact that America's foreign policy is about maintaining privileged military power in the hands of Israel to feed their narcotic addictions and God complex. Israel cowardly uses sophisticated attack jets to bomb densely populated refugee camps, schools, apartment blocks, hospitals, and slums. Israel is attacking a population that has no air force, no air defence, no navy, no heavy weapons, no artillery units, no mechanized armour, no command and control, no army, and calls it a war. It is not a war, it is murder.
The Suspicious Mossad and CIA Connections With 9/11
Osama's Death Doesn't Change What Happened On 9/11
Osama's death won't bring back those who have died from the World Trade Centre attacks. Osama's death won't bring back all the life senselessly lost on the "War on Terror." Osama's death won't bring back America to its former glory. Osama's death will bring no justice to the hearts of the educated and enlightened.
Osama's death won't answer why exactly a group of Mossad agents were found cheering and giving each other high fives at the scene of the planes colliding into the towers. Osama's death won't explain how they could have been there to "document the event" before it knowingly happened in the eyes of the general public. Osama's death doesn't explain why NORAD was completely shut down for "military exercises" just an hour before 9/11 happened. Osama's death doesn't explain how the top piece of "evidence" was a perfectly preserved Koran that somehow survived the carnage in the World Trade Centre, used by the so called terrorists. Osama's death doesn't explain why the Saudi Royals were the only civilians allowed to travel American airspace just moments after 9/11. Osama's death doesn't explain how World Trade Centre 7, a steel framed superstructure, somehow miraculously collapsed on its own footprint several yards away from WTC 1 and 2. Did Osama Bin Laden's sneeze cause it to collapse? Osama's death won't explain how come we have no debris from the aircraft that smashed into the Pentagon. Osama's death won't make the Patriot Act, a device used to curtail your civil liberties, go away. Osama's death won't stop the TSA from molesting our women.
Osama Bin Laden, he was a master illusionist of a figure in the eyes of every American when believed to be alive, he'll be an even greater illusion in death. . . Those in power have discovered that Osama in death can hold the illusionary war on terror better than in life. . . Yes, that's right; I'm calling the war on terror a complete and total fraud. However, I made no mistake in choosing the subtitles for this article. Make no mistake; this is very much about fighting terrorism, domestic terrorism.
