Grand Scam


We are ten years into a war and I wonder how many people have actually thought about how ludicrous it seems that the United States military cannot defeat a faceless enemy which doesn’t have a modern military itself? This enemy – which typically fights with roadside bombs and suicide vests – allegedly confused the most sophisticated military in the world on 11 September 2001, so much so that our military-industrial complex literally froze and couldn’t respond to defend these United States. If this is true, as we’ve been told by the mainstream media, then how would our military respond if we were actually attacked by a nation with its own modern navy and air force, such as China or Russia? We need to rethink this so-called war on terror because all indicators point to this being the biggest scam ever perpetrated on the citizens of the United States. Defense contractors are literally given a blank check with little to no oversight at a time when this country’s own infrastructure is crumbling, unemployment is in double-digits, and the Occupy Wall Street movement is the hottest franchise around.
