Bloglines - By the Norms of Conventional Discourse, I Am Quite Sure That I Am Considered "A Kook"

Humint Events Online
The 9/11 hijacking attacks were very likely facilitated by a rogue group within the US government that created an Islamic terrorist "Pearl Harbor" event as a catalyst for the military invasion of Middle Eastern countries. This weblog will explore the incredibly strange events of 9/11/01, and other issues of US government responsibility.

By the Norms of Conventional Discourse, I Am Quite Sure That I Am Considered "A Kook"

By Spooked

But at least I don't advocate nuclear genocide.

Even scarier, nuking the Islamic world that appears to be warmly embraced by many commenters to the column.

Now in the interest of fairness, I am sure that Walter E. Williams (and his many admirers) and me all have the same goal in mind: to stop terrorism.

But that is where the similarity ends. The main problem is that Walter E. Williams and people like him have gone off the deep end in believing the government propaganda about terrorism. Thus, they are absolutely petrified of fanatical muslims who they think are out to destroy us.

Apart from the fact that 9/11 was an inside job, everyone should realize that:
1) Islamic extremism and Islamic terror are complicated problems with deep roots, and the Anglo world is intertwined in those roots
2) Islamic extremism and Islamic terror can and should be solved by non-violent means
3) not all Islamic extremists are after the same thing, only a fraction of them are out to kill Americans, and likely only a tiny fraction truly want to destroy the US
4) terrorism can be stopped by appropriate security measures; terrorism can be stopped by promoting political reform in the US as well as truly promoting democracy in the middle east
5) most terrorists are rather incompetent
6) most successful terrorism is state-sponsored
7) much terrorism is false-flag, and the western world has used terrorism as a political tool
8) Islamic extremists have been used and are still nurtured by the US as a counter-weight to Russia
9) the threat from true Islamic terrorism is relatively minor in the grand scheme of things-- particularly for Americans
10) the analogy used frequently by conservatives comparing what is happening today to pre-WWII days is severely flawed and horribly over-played
11) nuking a country that has not attacked the US is terrorism in itself, is insanity and pure evil and will not stop terrorism
