RECAP: Australian Troops are NOT in Afghanistan to Stop International Terrorism

By Spookypunkos

Australian troops are not in Afghanistan to stop spectre of International Terrorism as is often claimed in justification of our continued overseas deployment.

We are there to support the US occupation that followed their unwarranted invasion. We are now attempting to provide an alternative system to Taliban rule making us both invaders and nation builders at the same time. For Australia and the US there is not, and there never was, any reason of defense importance to invade that country.

Indeed, after 911 the Taliban, on multiple occasions, offered to hand over the alleged perpetrator of the attacks, Osama Bin Laden, but were rebuffed by US officials every time.

International terrorists, the ones that Minister Smith said still threatened our safety, only do so thanks to the support and financing facilitated by Western intelligence organisations. Rather than stopping terror attacks, sections of the intelligence community seek to realise such operations in order to fuel conflict for strategic purposes. After all, one cannot bomb, invade or otherwise meddle in the affairs of sovereign countries without some sort of convincing story.

Yes, there are regional terrorist groups but attacks inside Western countries are almost exclusively directed or undertaken by individuals tied to the intelligence agencies.

The atrocities of 9/11 and 7/7 are instances in which the alleged terrorists, and their leaders, had ties to the CIA, MI6 and other foreign intelligence services. According FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds, Bin Laden was intimately connected to the CIA right up until the attacks, while other FBI agents discovered Saudi intelligence connections to the hijackers. In the case of 7/7 the "mastermind", Haroon Rashid Aswat, was later identified by US sources as an MI6 double agent.

The harsh reality is that none of these devastating attacks could have succeeded without the assistance of intelligence agency people and others in positions of authority. 911 would not have happened if not for the involvement of high ranking US officials who shut down FBI anti-terrorist investigations that had identified many of the alleged hijackers prior to the attacks. Additionally the US Army anti-terrorist unit known as "Able Danger" was also hamstrung in its mission when they were told to allow the free passage of known terrorists into the US before 911.

Today Australian forces are in Afghanistan thanks to the global "war on terror" championed by the the Bush White House. This phony situation, the entire war, is completely unnecessary and is a result actions undertaken by people working in the lawless "shadow" side of the US Government.

So, despite what Australian officials have said there is no reason, vital to the defense interests of Australia, that compels us to stay. The question must be asked whether our troops should remain overseas and attempt to nation build, whilst also fighting against the Taliban, or should they withdraw and come home ?

Now please view the documentary "Fabled Enemies". Educate yourselves about the hidden intelligence ties to terrorist networks. There's a nasty game being played out of sight of the public and everyone should know about it.
