The Sad Truth About Terrorism

Terrorism is a word that is tossed around a lot now days by politicians and other people trying to use fear mongering to control us. However, not many people have had the opportunity to sit back, detach and really analyze what terrorism is all about and how much of a threat it really poses if any.

Is terrorism worth sacrificing so much liberty over?   Who poses the greatest threat to the American population? This article will look into those questions and hopefully answer them for you.

An Honest Look At The Statistics of Terrorism

The big sad truth about terrorism is not that it's all staged and manipulated to start wars for profit (via false flag attacks). Even if 9/11 WAS an inside job by our own government, which we'll get into in the next section of this article, that is NOT the main sad truth about terrorism. The sad truth about terrorism lies in the statistics.

We have been conditioned by our major news stations, Walmart broadcasts and our own government to quiver in fear at the word 'Terrorism', but why? What is it that is so scary about terrorism? We don't quiver at the word 'McDonalds' (well, some of us do actually) and we don't quiver at the word 'Pharmaceuticals', yet both of those cause more deaths a year than terrorism.

Let's take a look at some of the top killers of Americans each year and how many casualties they cause on average each year. We'll then compare that with the average number of deaths per year from terrorism.

Faulty Pharmaceuticals - Over 100,000 people a year, and rising, are killed by faulty prescription drugs.

Alcohol - 75,000 deaths a year are attributed to alcohol.

Obesity - 30,000 deaths a year are caused by obesity. As you'll find out soon, McDonald's poses more of a threat to the average American than Al Queada does.

Spider Bites - Spiders kill 110 people a year. That is STILL more than bearded men in caves wearing turbans.

Get ready to be shocked...

Terrorism - 20 people a year on average die from terrorism.

You have an almost higher chance of winning the lottery than dying from terrorism! Yet we continue to sacrifice our freedoms for security through actions such as establishing 'The Patriot Act', which we all know is ANYTHING but what the name implies.

"He who would sacrifice liberty for security deserves neither liberty nor security." -- Benjamin Franklin

You'd think that if our government was so concerned about our safety, they'd be deploying our troops around our homes to find and kill spiders, because they pose more of a threat to us than terrorists do.

No, however, because killing spiders is not as profitable as bombing the hell out of a country who's main export is oil. As Gerald Celente says, "If Iraq's main export was broccoli, we wouldn't be over there."


False Flag Terror Attacks

What is a 'false flag attack'?

A false flag attack is where one group of people stage an attack to make it look like it was another group of people to breed mass amounts of culture hatred and fear towards the group of people it was made to look like were the original offenders. This is a way of enabling consent by the population to allow the government to go declare war on the group of people who were framed for the original attack.

The first recorded account of a false flag attack in history was Hitler's Reichstag fires. On the evening of February 2nd, 1933, a group of Jewish thugs, hired by Hitler's orders, set fire to the Reichstag building.

The next morning the public was horrified and disgusted by the events that took place the night before. Desperate to make sure nothing like that would ever happen again, they were willing to give up their freedom and liberties when suggested by Hindenburg who stated "...for the Protection of the people and the State."

He then continued, "Restrictions on personal liberty, on the right of free expression of opinion, including freedom of the press; on the rights of assembly and association; and violations of the privacy of postal, telegraphic and telephonic communications and warrants for house searches, orders for confiscations as well as restrictions on property, are also permissible beyond the legal limits otherwise prescribed."

Hitler successfully utilized the strategy of problem, reaction, solution to strip away individual liberties from the population of Germany which enabled him to prepare his holocaust. I will explain what 'problem, reaction, solution' is and how it works in a moment.

There have been other false flag operations since Reichstag, but conducted by our own government instead. As of today it is government released and confirmed knowledge that the Gulf of Tonkin was another false flag operation.

There is a substantial amount of evidence that suggests the destruction of the World Trade Centers was a false flag attack, but the purpose of this article is not to convince you of that. If you are really curious, do a Google search for 9/11 truth and look at what the experts with degrees in physics and demolitions say about it. It's quite shocking -- especially building 7!

Problem, Reaction, Solution

The strategy of Problem, Reaction, Solution is simple and it is the strategy Hitler had in mind during the Reichstag fire.

Basically, you create a problem. This can be a terror attack, for example. You hire a group of people such as jews, radical muslims, hippies, tree huggers, you name it. You then instruct them to carry out an attack on whichever group of people you desire to control and manipulate.

You wait for that targeted group of people's reaction, which is usually hatred, fear, anger, despair, and then you ofter your solution.

Whatever your solution is, it should fulfill the goal you originally had in mind. If your goal is to strip away liberties, then you explain to the targeted population that in order to protect them from something like this incident ever happening again, they must give up X, Y and Z freedoms. If your goal was to go to war with a certain country and make profit from it, you then feed off the anger and hatred triggered by your false flag attack and the manipulated masses will happily agree to go to war and kill and lose their own lives to fill your pocket with money.



Oddly enough, the biggest number of deaths resulting from terror (or false flag terror) attacks comes from going to war over it. It seems that by reacting with fear to any given situation, we only end up attracting more situations that cause even more fear. Instead, we should remain calm and logical in the event another terrorist attack is to take place and not let ourselves be lead around and manipulated by our fear and anger, or else we'll only lose more American lives in the war we agree to go to.

As Benjamin Franklin suggests, we should NEVER be willing to sacrifice our individual god-given liberty for security or else we'll fall right into the trap of being manipulated and controlled.
