On the day of September 11, 2001, at around 10 am, when the second tower was brought down, anchorman Dan Rather on CBS spontaneously exclaimed, to the effect: it is the second time today that we have seen a building demolished like in “controlled demolition” – that’s rehearsing from memory. The words “controlled demolition” were uttered on mainstream television news channel by a well known newsman within minutes of the two World Trade Center towers’ cataclysmic and sudden collapse, never to be repeated again. I am a witness to its utterance.*
8 years later, some more concrete evidence is emerging of explosive particulate in the dust debris. 150 years later, it will be a fact to be read in 6th-graders’ history books how ‘small pox blankets were handed to the native American Indians’ to conquer their indigenous homeland.
In this case, history books would just as shamelessly narrate how the ‘untermenschen’ and primitive ‘useless eaters’ were thinned out and how the New One-world Order was glorifyingly won.
These scientists are looking for Nobel prizes (see letters) – I hope they win it – just as historians laugh their way to accolades and the bank documenting how the ‘west was won’ by their own. My favorite historian Howard Zinn even sold a million of copies of his ‘People’s History of the United States’. That however did not prevent the respected historian from uttering the following:
“Of course as I told you, I never believe the government, or rarely believe the government. Do I believe the government version of what happened? Well, I am skeptical. Do I believe that the government was in the conspiracy to do this? I don’t know. I don’t know enough about the situation, and the truth is, I don’t care that much. That’s past. … the whole argument that the people are engaged in, about, was the government behind a conspiracy to blow up the two towers, to me that’s a diversion from what we really have to do, deal with the fact that whatever, whoever was behind 9/11, the government took advantage of that, to take us to war, and to put us on a disastrous course, and it’s that war, those wars, that disastrous course we have to deal with. I don’t want to go back to the controversy that I think is endless controversy, and just gets in the way of dealing with the immediate situation.” ( Video here, also Report )
Prof. Howard Zinn does not care to deal with the prime-mover cause, he prefers just to focus on its immediate effect. Such myopic focus has had little measurable impact in the past where ‘new Pearl Harbor’ pretexts have repeatedly been seeded, from USS Maine, to 911, for successive “imperial mobilization”.
And I believe the pendulum is swung in the other extreme direction for the scientists deeply fascinated in unraveling how the towers were demolished as an engineering marvel, to the very exclusion of the geopolitical ground realities on the Grand Chessboard – called fait accompli.
Unless an effective derailing path can be found to prevent new faits accomplis:
the pending nuclear war with Russia under the ‘Messianic’ President Obama,
the pending nuclear decimation of Pakistan and Iran,
the ongoing conquest of Eretz Yisrael,
the ongoing construction of global governance systems and structures using ‘war on terror’, financial collapse, global warming, etceteras, as enabling pretexts,
why might any one care about the scientists’ new found fascination with how tall buildings can be demolished in the backdrop of smoke and mirrors?
We tend to show such overzealousness for what is already fait accompli that we always seem to forget to apply its superfluity of lessons to fast breaking and often shocking current affairs to prevent new abhorrent faits accomplis! Then, ‘United We Stand’! The more intelligent among us also work hard to find inventive reasons why to believe the criminals. Finally, when we wake up from our slumber like Rip van Winkle and insist that we have just discovered the wheel, we also insist on an applause! We longingly speak of Nobel prizes, and take bows in all humility. But while we remained asleep, the tabula rasa of the ‘untermenschen’ was laid to waste! And while we are enjoying our discovering the various parameters of making a perfectly round wheel, more ‘untermenschen’ are being laid to dust. By the time Nobel Prizes are handed out, the ashes of a vibrant humanity might only be found “suspended in a sunbeam.”
So, just as Zbigniew Brzezinski calculatingly laid an effective path from a “new Pearl Harbor” to “imperial mobilization” to bridge the chasm “Between Two Ages”, unless his detractors can lay an effective counter path from proving Controlled Demolition to derailing Imperial Mobilization, fait accompli of political science has trumped the prowess of hard science.
See my letters to the respected Professor Jones et. al., and to Bentham Open, their publisher, from last April, 2008. While their work is scientifically acute, and even courageous, the questions posed then still stand, still begging to be noticed, and responded to.
The matter is so time critical, so fait accompli sensitive, and so urgent that perhaps I might be forgiven a repetition when I highlight the following passage from my letters to the 911 scholars and scientists:
I hope you would also permit me to share this one final lament. I sometimes sense that even well intentioned peoples in the United States often tend to forget that other’s dead and destroyed are not mere statistics to their loved ones. Sitting 20,000 miles away from the murderous war zone, it is easy to become engrossed in solving the riddles of 911, or rehearsing interesting histories in conference halls that are already fait accompli. Can the conscionable peoples in this nation at least make it a point to also sometimes imagine, as a shocking thought experiment, that with every falling American bomb upon a ‘lesser’ peoples, paid for from their own tax dollars, their mom, dad, sister, brother, kids, wife, and the family dog is killed? What courses of action, and with what urgency, would one take then?
Here is a reminder how one goes from genesis to genocide in a twinkle. Let’s imagine for one tiny moment that these are our own beloved family members! That can instantly bring both moral and scientific clarity to the matter of fait accompli.
* The following video clip has yet another statement from Dan Rather, this time also referencing the total collapse of the third building (WTC-7) : “… amazing, incredible, pick your word. For the third time today, it’s reminiscent of those pictures we have all seen too much on television before when a building was deliberately destroyed by well-placed dynamite to knock it down,”.
