Selama ini para penganut teori konspirasi, seperti yang berpendapat bahwa peristiwa 9 11 adalah kerjaan pemerintah AS, dituduh sebagai orang gila.

Tapi … siapa sebenarnya yang gila? Yang menuduh ataukah yang dituduh?

Some people say that bizarre conspiracy theories play a disturbingly large role in current American political discourse. And they’re right.

For example, many conservative politicians and pundits seem to agree with James Inhofe, chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, who has declared that “man-made global warming is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people.”

Of more immediate political relevance is the claim that the reason we hear mainly bad news from Iraq is that the media, for political reasons, are conspiring to suppress the good news. As Bill O’Reilly put it a few months ago, “a good part of the American media wants to undermine the Bush administration.”

But these examples, of course, aren’t what people are usually referring to when they denounce crazy conspiracy theories. For the last few years, the term “conspiracy theory” has been used primarily to belittle critics of the Bush administration — in particular, anyone suggesting that the Bush administration used 9/11 as an excuse to fight an unrelated war in Iraq.

Now here’s the thing: suppose that we didn’t have abundant evidence that senior officials in the Bush administration wanted a war, cherry-picked intelligence to make a case for that war, and in some cases suppressed inconvenient evidence contradicting that case. Even so, it would be an abuse of the English language to call the claim that the administration misled us into war a conspiracy theory.

A conspiracy theory, says Wikipedia, “attempts to explain the cause of an event as a secret, and often deceptive, plot by a covert alliance.” Claims that global warming is a hoax and that the liberal media are suppressing the good news from Iraq meet that definition. In each case, to accept the claim you have to believe that people working for many different organizations — scientists at universities and research facilities around the world, reporters for dozens of different news organizations — are secretly coordinating their actions.

But the administration officials who told us that Saddam had an active nuclear program and insinuated that he was responsible for 9/11 weren’t part of a covert alliance; they all worked for President Bush. The claim that these officials hyped the case for war isn’t a conspiracy theory; it’s simply an assertion that people in a position of power abused that position. And that assertion only seems wildly implausible if you take it as axiomatic that Mr. Bush and those around him wouldn’t do such a thing.

The truth is that many of the people who throw around terms like “loopy conspiracy theories” are lazy bullies who, as Zachary Roth put it on CJR Daily, The Columbia Journalism Review’s Web site, want to “confer instant illegitimacy on any argument with which they disagree.” Instead of facing up to hard questions, they try to suggest that anyone who asks those questions is crazy.

Indeed, right-wing pundits have consistently questioned the sanity of Bush critics; “It looks as if Al Gore has gone off his lithium again,” said Charles Krauthammer, the Washington Post columnist, after Mr. Gore gave a perfectly sensible if hard-hitting speech. Even moderates have tended to dismiss the administration’s harsh critics as victims of irrational Bush hatred.

But now those harsh critics have been vindicated. And it turns out that many of the administration supporters can’t handle the truth. They won’t admit that they built a personality cult around a man who has proved almost pathetically unequal to the job. Nor will they admit that opponents of the Iraq war, whom they called traitors for warning that invading Iraq was a mistake, have been proved right. So they have taken refuge in the belief that a vast conspiracy of America-haters in the media is hiding the good news from the public.

Unlike the crazy conspiracy theories of the left — which do exist, but are supported only by a tiny fringe — the crazy conspiracy theories of the right are supported by important people: powerful politicians, television personalities with large audiences. And we can safely predict that these people will never concede that they were wrong. When the Iraq venture comes to a bad end, they won’t blame those who led us into the quagmire; they’ll claim that it was all the fault of the liberal media, which stabbed our troops in the back.

Kalau menurut Max Keiser, kini kapitalisme AS telah berubah
menjadi komunisme.

https://trisetyarso.wordpress.com/2008/10/07/amerika-dari-kapitalis-ke-komunis/

Sependek pengetahuan saya, yang terjadi sekarang ini adalah puncak dari
konsep “uang tercipta dari hutang”, bukan lagi dari konsep “uang
tercipta dari emas” atau sumber daya alam lainnya.

http://agung-trisetyarso.blogspot.com/2008/10/money-as-debt.html

Konsep “uang tercipta dari hutang” apalagi hutang ternyata disalurkan
oleh pihak swasta (Federal Reserve kalo gak salah swasta, cmiiw)
berdampak tidak hanya buruk bagi perekonomian, tapi juga kemerdekaan
suatu bangsa. Maka dari itu, kebebasan dan kemerdekaan di Amerika
Serikat, pada hakikatnya adalah semu, karena mereka telah dibelenggu
oleh hutang dan penjajah terbesarnya adalah si pemberi kredit, yaitu
keluarga Rockefeller, Rothschild dkk. Itu diakui sendiri oleh
Presiden AS, Woodrow Wilson:

I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great
industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of
credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all
our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one
of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and
dominated Governments in the civilized world – no longer a Government
by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of
the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small
group of dominant men.- Woodrow Wilson

Silakan lihat gurita keluarga Rockefeller disini: http://www.fdrs.org/rockefeller.html

(maka dari itu ada pendapat yang mengatakan begitu banyak agenda
pesanan dari rockefeller dkk; termasuk salah satunya “9 11”, Irak,
Afghanistan dsb … )

Dan yang terjadi sekarang ini, sependek pengetahuan saya, udah super
parah; dimana penyitaan alias foreclosure terjadi berjamaah alias
mayoritas rakyat AS sudah dalam keadaan bangkrut dan lebih parahnya
pajak mereka harus digunakan untuk mensubsidi raksasa2x seperti Lehman
dkk; dimana padahal bos2x mereka semakin kaya akibat krisis ini,
sementarah pegawai2xnya pada dipecatin semuah alias makin miskin.

http://agung-trisetyarso.blogspot.com/2008/10/bos-lehman-makin-kaya.html

(Jadi inget lagu H. Rhoma Irama … yang kaya makin kaya yang miskin
makin miskin … hehehehehe …)

Ketika beberapa tahun lalu seorang paman saya yang seorang investor saham mengatakan AS akan menyerang Irak, saya cuma tertawa karena pastilah ide itu cuma ide gila yang akan menghancurkan perekonomian dunia dan AS sendiri.

Seperti kita tahu, AS adalah konsumen minyak terbesar di dunia, sehingga naiknya harga minyak akan merusak pula keadaan ekonomi negara itu.

Tapi, kenyataannya seperti kita sudah pada tahu semua, Bush and Co mengamalkan penjajahan itu, dengan beralasan “War on Terror”. Akhir-akhir ini kita akhirnya secara pasti tahu, bahwa perang irak tak ada kaitannya dengan Osama bin Laden, Weapon Mass Destruction dkk.

Seperti kita tahu juga, berdasarkan penelitian yang dilakukan oleh para korban “9 11” sebagaimana didokumentasikan di “Press for the truth” http://agung-trisetyarso.blogspot.com/2008/09/press-for-truth.html, kalau ingin mengejar “pelaku terorisme”, seharusnya pemerintah AS memfokuskan diri ke Pakistan, dimana asal-muasal misteri “9 11” dimulai. Bukti terjadinya transfer uang untuk Muhammad Atta, Zaid Jarra dkk yang diberikan oleh ISI, yaitu CIA-nya Pakistan, seharusnya ditindaklanjuti.

(Inilah kejanggalan kebijakan Pemerintah Bush; bukannya meneruskan penyelidikan ke Pakistan, justru melakukan penyerangan ke Irak, negeri yang tak ada kaitannya sama sekali dengan “9 11”)

Dan ternyata, ujung-ujungnya serangan ke Irak adalah karena duit dan minyak (https://trisetyarso.wordpress.com/2008/10/08/perang-irak-itu-karena-duit/)

Nah, setelah Bush and Co mengarsiteki terorisme “9 11”, perang irak dan afghanistan, plus mengambil untung dari krisis finansial yang kini terjadi, apakah mungkin masih berani menyerang iran?

Sayang seribu sayang, mobilisasi untuk perang ke iran sudah cukup lama dilakukan (https://trisetyarso.wordpress.com/2008/07/05/persiapan-perang-amrik-ke-iranpreparing-the-battlefield/) dan agaknya perang iran kemungkinan besar masih akan dilakukan, sebagaimana ditunjukkan grafik dari intrade.com:

Masih menurut Max Keiser, jika mempertimbangkan berita-berita politik para neo-cons(piracy), maka sekalipun probabilitas serangan ke Iran menurun pada bulan ini, tapi besar kemungkinan probabilitas tersebut akan meningkat pada bulan Desember tahun ini.

Agaknya serangan ke Iran terjadi setelah para investment banker yang diuntungkan dari krisis yang kini terjadi, telah mengakuisisi kembali perusahaan-perusahaan yang kini bangkrut dan juga cukup waktu untuk para invisible government untuk membuat propaganda besar-besaran untuk mencuci otak rakyat AS dan dunia.

Semoga saja tak terjadi ….

Bagi penyembah Bush dkk, yang mendukung habis penjajahan ke Irak, rasanya artikel di New York Times dibawah ini dan juga presentasi dari Antonia Juhasz, akan bisa membuat pikir-pikir.

Ujung-ujungnya penyerangan ke Irak adalah demi keuntungan Bush dan para kroninya.

Menurut Max Keiser, yang terjadi di AS sekarang ini adalah peralihan dari kapitalisme ke komunisme, tidak melalui fase sosialisme.

Lebih parah, AS adalah komunisme untuk kaum kaya.
