Can America be blamed for terrorism?

00_LuciusGanttAre America’s and other Western countries’ imperialist warmongers to blame for the current rise in terrorism? Perhaps they are!

So-called ISIS terrorists rose in stature when the leaders of Western nations began to use ”verbal terrorism” when describing the leaders of Syria and Iraq.

Any leader, foreign or domestic, that disagreed with the goals and ambitions of the puppets of the world’s military-industrial complexes was labeled as a despot or a dictator, even though many of the citizens of Syria and Iraq were safer 20 years ago than they are now.

Western propaganda
After the United States and its “allies” determined that leaders like Iraq’s Saddam Hussein, Syria’s Bashar Hafez al-Assad and Libya’s Muammar Muhammad Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi, for instance, were part of an “axis of evil,” Western news organizations reported the determinations as the honest-to-God truth.

Government intelligence agencies were tasked with identifying “rebels” who would fight against the above-cited leaders. News networks, major newspapers and conservative Internet bloggers were told or ordered to rubber-stamp the “evil dictator” message. The result was people living in Western nations fell for the dictator propaganda hook, line and sinker!

Are Western government and political leaders perfect, honest and without sin? No. Are Middle Eastern and Eastern political leaders great guys? Not by a long shot.

But guess what. The so-called despots and dictators did a hell of a lot better job of fighting and controlling Islamic terrorists than the United States, the United Kingdom and France are doing today!

Kept terrorism down
Your president, your Congress, your country’s so-called allies and others claim that Al Qaeda and other terror groups were running rampant in Iraq, for instance, when Saddam was alive according to Fox News and all the other news networks here and abroad.

But the truth of the matter is that Saddam and Al Qaeda were mortal enemies. Saddam kept the terror group at bay and beat back any attempt of the terrorists to get a stronghold in Iraq.

Syria’s Assad, from day one, insisted that insurgents described as “rebels” by government and media were nothing but terrorists from the start. But instead of investigating Assad’s claim, the imperialists suggested any leader in Syria would be better than Assad. Not because he was a horrible dictator; but because he was friends with the Russians.

The United States had “agreements” with Gaddafi. There are photos of him with people like Condoleezza Rice showing somewhat friendly relations. But when the Libyan president suggested that his country and other African countries should only accept payments in gold for their oil and other commodities, he quickly became a persona non grata!

Hell broke loose
Moving forward quickly, after Western nations started to bomb those countries and assisted in killing at least two of the country’s leaders, all terrorist hell broke loose!

If the citizens and residents of Muslim countries don’t want to rise up as a majority and fight to overthrow their leaders, there is no coalition in the world that can do it!

Instead of being the world’s policemen, America should address its own domestic terrorist problem.

They should forcibly dismantle the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, skinheads and other groups in this country that bomb churches, attack military institutions, shoot and kill schoolchildren, and murder Black teens, men, women and children in broad daylight!

If you get killed by ISIS, or some other foreign terrorists, or by a Klansman masquerading as a law enforcement officer, you are still DEAD!

Let them lead
Let the Muslims, outside and inside of the United States, take the frontlines in the battle to subdue and defeat Muslims that are terrorists. Then, all Americans would have no problem joining the battle – as long as the battle is righteous, correct and will result in equal rights and justice for all, regardless of race, creed, color or religious preference!

Fighting for oil, defense contractors, imaginary despots and fake rebels is not my kind of conflict!
