  • After doing preliminary research into the events of 11 September 2001, I have concluded that a ragtag bunch of middle eastern Islamic terrorists could not have pulled it off. I have become convinced that a rogue element within the U. S. military-industrial-intelligence complex decided to go to war with Iraq to secure oil reserves in the middle east.

    Creating the need for a war accomplished two things simultaneously; One, a new war would reverse trends of a political environment that viewed a post-Cold War, bloated military structure as being expensive and unnecessary; and Two, a new war would secure America’s future for the next 100 years by commandeering the oil fields of Iraq.

    Peak Oil
    In 1956 a Shell Geoscientist, M. King Hubbert, predicted that the world would run out of cheaply produced oil supplies by the year 2000. He predicted that oil production would NOT keep up with world demand. The industrialized west would begin to suffer economic and social disturbances because it is heavily dependent on petroleum. Without oil, civilization as we know it, will come to an abrupt halt. Oil is a strategic material. Armies and navies cannot operate without it. The U.S. has only 5% of the world’s population but consumes 25% of the world’s oil reserves. Without its oil reserves, America loses world dominance.

    As Hubbert predicted, domestic production of oil and natural gas has been declining for decades. If America was to survive in the 21st century’s world of dwindling oil supplies, it must have direct access to middle eastern oil reserves. It was necessary to obtain control of Iraq’s oil fields by military force. The future of the western industrialized world depended on securing the best oil in the world.

    But there was a problem. The American people were not interested in another protracted war. We had learned our lessons from the painful experience of the Viet Nam War. The American people needed to be shocked out of their complacency. National pride and patriotism needed to be re-energized. The planners of the new war needed a false flag operation. 9/11.

    Thinking the unthinkable.
    We pay our military experts to think like the enemy. Our defense planners actually design attack scenarios on the United States. They also design counter measures to those possible attack scenarios. Our military leaders develop strategies and contingencies based on probabilities of hostile acts against U.S. interests. We create “war games” to test those probabilities and to find weaknesses within our defense system.

    When officials in the George W. Bush Administration admitted their failure to protect the nation, they explained that no one imagined that suicidal terrorists would hijack aircraft to use them as missiles. But that is not true. In fact, on that fateful day of 9/11, according to several truther websites, the military was engaged in war games to combat that very scenario. It is not inconceivable then, that a plan was devised and carried out by agents of the United States Military-Industrial-Intelligence complex on 9/11 to attack America. Our defense system failed because it was rigged to fail.

    Nearly 3,000 people died in the attacks on 9/11. But it could have been far worst. The death toll could have been 30,000 or more. It is possible that the plan was designed to keep casualties at a minimum. If 9/11 was an inside job, then the victims were sacrificial lambs on the altar of national security and a sustained oil production future.

    There are over 300 million Americans. Any battle commander will tell you that 0.01 of 1 per cent is an acceptable casualty rate.
