The August 10 report of a spectacular foiled UK-based super-terror plot, an alleged Operation Bojinka variation, has sparked an unprecedented round of 9/11-style fear and panic mongering throughout the world. This is a new attempt, at the highest levels of the Bush and Blair administrations, in concert with Pakistan�s ISI and Israel, to fabricate the justification for an escalation in the �war on terrorism� across the Middle East.

This escalation will include an attack on Iran and Syria as early as October, and with even greater geostrategic violence to follow.

Proof that Bush administration planning the next 9/11

Dick Cheney recently declared: �The enemy that struck on 9/11 is fractured and weakened, yet still lethal, still determined to hit us again.� That is a concise description of Cheney�s own administration, and its intentions. And he knows it.

It is a known fact that the Bush administration, itching for a wider war, has been planning to set up a �second 9/11� to establish the pretext to justify a multi-front war stretching from Africa across Middle East, and across the Eurasian continent that the Anglo-American empire seeks to control:

The Pentagon's "Second 9/11"

It is now known that Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld (among others) have been overtly planning �another attack [blamed on 'terrorists' and/or Iran] that could create both a justification and an opportunity that is lacking today to retaliate against some known targets.� The Bush administration has already prepared the operation, as well as the criminal lies and propaganda to go with it.

There is a good reason why Bush and Blair have spent so much time together lately.

Recent rhetoric from the Bush administration�s criminal leadership (Bush, Cheney, Rice, Rumsfeld) has clearly attempted to tie Hezbollah, Hamas, Iraqi resistance, Afghan fighters, and other �Islamic fascists� with �Al-Qaeda.� The mass public has willingly accepted this and other ongoing �war on terrorism� deceptions.

These detailed plans by the Bush administration, in place for over the past year, with instructions given to its military-intelligence agencies, await the official go-ahead. Undoubtedly, the �next 9/11� will be blamed on �Islamic fascists,� and either directly carried out by manipulated intelligence assets, or deliberately provoked by atrocities now being committed in the Middle East and Iraq. But, just as it was on 9/11, the fascists at the highest levels in Washington, London and Islamabad (and Tel Aviv) will be the ones responsible for whatever happens next.

Manufactured blowback is not blowback. Guided covert operations are manufactured terrorism, not �terrorism.�

The next 9/11 may already be happening

Recent events suggest that the broader operation likely began with the horrific Mumbai transit bomb attacks, a blatantly manufactured event carried out by terror cells directly connected to Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence, the ISI (a virtual branch of the American CIA), and the same (alleged �Al-Qaeda�) apparatus also responsible for the Bush administration�s 9/11 and other post-9/11 terror events.

This was followed by Israel�s attack on Gaza, and its invasion of Lebanon, with both events preceded by a bogus �anti-terrorism� pretext. The London construct follows the same pattern as the London 7/7, which was a false flag operation.

Ties to London 7/7 lead back to Bush, Blair, ISI

Current reports about the new foiled London plot pin the responsibility on �homegrown� terrorists with ties to Pakistan and "Al-Qaeda", and the London 7/7 attacks. The London 7/7 attack itself was the work of  British intelligence, as well as Pakistan's ISI.

This is the same apparatus, the same �terror� propaganda. The international feeding frenzy of security �experts� and current and former spooks falling over themselves to proclaim the threat to be real, quick to lick at Bush-Cheney�s jackboots, is no surprise.

Meanwhile, officials in London have, predictably, provided little or no concrete evidence to support their allegations, or the conspiracy theories and speculations spinning out of control across the media. This is consistent with every �terror� event since 9/11: deception and cover-up, no evidence.

Meanwhile, underneath the layers of noise created by the mighty Wurlitzer, bits such as this line from the Washington Post beg for attention: �Intelligence officials and private analysts expressed suspicion that the plot was an al Qaeda operation, but said there was no confirmation.�

Fear, intimidation, stupidity

The UK terror story is, at the very least, a test of the effectiveness of the �terrorism� propaganda apparatus that has been the bread and butter of Bush/Blair/Israel.

Based on Pavlovian reactions to the new stories, and the panic, and mass ignorance displayed by the masses, the fear of �terrorists� and bone-deep racism inspired by Bush�s manufactured 9/11 false flag operation remain tragically potent. Mass public ignorance still abounds, evidenced by the international paralysis of the past 48 hours. The �terrorists 24-7� narrative has been accepted without a hint of skepticism, without any questions, without the pursuit of any facts, by the vast majority -- still powerful enough, in spite of the unpopularity of Bush and the Iraq �mistake,� to fuel the criminal �war on terrorism� well into the future.

Until and unless realities are understood and directly faced, the world remains in the sleeperhold of the propaganda apparatus of Bush-Blair-Olmert. As long as this dynamic persists, these legions of �good Germans,� obediently swallowing their propaganda poisons, will jump through the hoops, even as more government-approved mass murder takes place, including their own.

Adjusting the script, covering their political rear ends

It is clear that, for reasons of political expediency, that the �war on terrorism� narrative has been changed to focus on �foiled� terror plots, and (�even tougher to apprehend�) �homegrown terrorists,� in order to 1) create the perception of competence and successful anti-terrorism to counter criticism from political opponents (themselves equally fervent, equally criminal �war on terrorism� proponents) who have criticized the Bush administration�s �failures,� while 2) infusing the �Al-Qaeda� propaganda structure with fresh and lurid new twists.

These new fictions include slippery "home grown terrorists", alleged to still be guided by �Al-Qaeda,� �specialists� capable of carrying out �spectaculars,� and endless speculations about creative new delivery methods.

The tipping point is now

Five years have gone by since the manufactured crisis of 9/11. Now, the Anglo-American empire needs a �new 9/11� or a perceived threat capable of deceiving the mass public into supporting the next planned geostrategic horror.

Check the calendar, and think like a Bush administration criminal. The five-year anniversary of 9/11 is only a few weeks away. The Bush administration wants to attack Iran and Syria by October. Israel is going into Lebanon, but cannot expand beyond southern Lebanon, cannot attack Syria and Iran without Anglo-American help. A US election (or �selection�) in November, likely to hand some degree of political power back to neoliberals (Democrats), gives the Bush-Cheney neocons a three-month window to attempt their super-violent end run. Peak Oil and Gas, increasing shortage, is making itself felt in earnest with the disruptions of US oil supplies from Prudhoe Bay, crisis reports from remaining oil fields (Saudi Arabia), defiance from Venezuela, etc. Desperation fuels the likelihood of increasing brute force and violence, led by the Bush administration.

This is a moment of elite criminal consensus, and unprecedented danger.

This is a perfect storm.

Prepare yourselves.
