Who REALLY Produced the Film 'Desert Warrior' That Is Now Convulsing the Middle East?
Actress says was duped, as anti-Islam film details emerge ... The origins of a crudely made anti-Muslim movie that sparked violent protests in Egypt and Libya began to slowly emerge on Wednesday, with an actress in the California production saying she was duped and was unaware it was about the Prophet Mohammad. Cindy Lee Garcia of Bakersfield, California, who appears briefly in clips of the film posted online, said she answered a casting call last year to appear in a movie titled "Desert Warrior." "It looks so unreal to me, it's like nothing that we even filmed was there. There was all this weird stuff there," Garcia told Reuters in a phone interview. Clips of the movie, posted on YouTube under several titles including "Innocence of Muslims," portrayed the Muslim prophet engaged in crude and offensive behavior. Many Muslims consider any depiction of the prophet as blasphemous. Clips had been posted online for weeks before apparently triggering violent demonstrations on Tuesday at the U.S. embassy in Cairo and consulate in Benghazi, Libya, in which U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed. – Reuters
Dominant Social Theme: One crazy film is all it takes to start World War III.
Free-Market Analysis: As part of the evolution of The Daily Bell, we have adopted the idea of "directed history," the idea that the power elite creates a historical narrative to further its globalist ambitions.
This led us to hypothesize some two years ago that the so-called Arab Spring was a pretext to install Islamic republican governments throughout the Middle East in order to foment a religious war with the West.
We also hypothesized that the CIA-penetrated Muslim Brotherhood would be the metaphorical Trojan horse that would be used by Western powers as the antithetical element – the controlled opposition – to ignite this war.
Not a single other publication we know of fully predicted what has come to pass, identifying the Muslim Brotherhood as the controlled opposition and US sponsored Saudi-Wahhabism as the religious trigger.
Don't believe we predicted all this? Just search the Internet for Daily Bell and Islamic Crescent and Muslim Brotherhood.
We point this out not to lobby for Pulitzer Prize (do you think they'd give us one?) but because we want to re-emphasize the relevance of our worldview.
There is a power elite funded by central banking that wants to create world government. It uses directed history, incidents of pre-meditated economic depression, military adventurism and regulatory authoritarianism to support this effort.
Like a boa constrictor, it swallows its prey in gulps. There is much quiet time between efforts at ingestion. But ingest it does. And we are living through a "swallowing time" right now.
We are supposed to believe that the sudden religious blaze in the Middle East that just took the life of a US ambassador and three of his staff members was the result of an obscure movie.
This movie was so unknown that it could hardly generate views on YouTube. Then a strange preacher, Terry Jones, began to promote the movie and brought it to the world's attention. Here's Wikipedia on Jones:
Terry Jones (born October 1951) is the pastor of Dove World Outreach Center, a small fundamentalist Christian church in Gainsville, Florida. He first gained national and international attention in 2010 for his plan to burn Qur'ans, the scripture of the Islamic religion, on the tenth anniversary of the September 11 attacks. He is a self-declared independent presidential candidate in the 2012 U.S. Presidential election.
Jones sounds like a big shot but his total congregation is reportedly 50 ... fifty!
As for the man who produced the movie that has set the Mideast aflame, he was said initially to be a Jew and claimed that the movie was funded by "100 Jews."
This is perhaps the way the elites and their allies work. They want the Jews blamed first and foremost. The alternative media for its own reasons too often plays into the hands of this premeditated meme.
In any case, the filmmaker, self-identified as an Israeli-American property developer, Sam Bacile, has a spokesperson, a friend. Reuters reports this friend is Steven Klein, "a southern California man in the insurance business ... [who] described himself as a consultant and a spokesman for the project – but not the filmmaker." Klein believes Bacile's name is a pseudonym.
"I've met him twice, I don't know what country he's from. I do know he's not an Israeli Jew and I can only guess he threw that out to protect his family, which I do know is back in the Middle East," Klein told Reuters in an interview in front of his home in Hemet, California, as he sipped a beer.
And who is Klein? He is a former US Marine who said he advised the filmmaker to go into hiding. Regardless of whether Bacile hides or not, his identity is being revealed. AP reports the following:
Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, told The Associated Press in an interview outside Los Angeles that he managed logistics for the company that produced "Innocence of Muslims," which mocked Muslims and the prophet Muhammad and may have inflamed mobs that attacked U.S. missions in Egypt and Libya.
Nakoula denied he had directed the film, though he said he knew the self-described filmmaker, Sam Bacile. But the cellphone number that the AP contacted Tuesday to reach the filmmaker who identified himself as Bacile traced to the same address near Los Angeles where Nakoula was located.
Nakoula told the AP he is a Coptic Christian and supported the concerns of Christian Copts about their treatment by Muslims.
The film was implicated in protests that resulted in the burning of the U.S. consulate Tuesday in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi. Libyan officials said Wednesday that Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other embassy employees were killed during the mob violence, but U.S. officials now say they are investigating whether the assault was a planned terrorist strike linked to Tuesday's 11-year anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks.
Nakoula denied he had posed as Sam Bacile. Federal court papers filed in a 2010 criminal prosecution against him said Nakoula had used numerous aliases in the past. Among the fake names, the documents said, were Nicola Bacily and Erwin Salameh.
During a conversation outside his home, Nakoula offered his driver's license to show his identity but kept his thumb over his middle name, Basseley. Records checks by the AP subsequently found that middle name as well as other connections to the Bacile persona.
So Bacile may actually be a convicted fraudster named Nakoula. The AP reports:
Nakoula, who talked guardedly about his role, pleaded no contest in 2010 to federal bank fraud charges in California and was ordered to pay more than $790,000 in restitution. He was also sentenced to 21 months in federal prison and ordered not to use computers or the Internet for five years without approval from his probation officer.
Klein makes an appearance in the AP article, too. AP reports that Klein was among those identifying Bacile/Nakoula as a "Jew" before changing his mind and describing him as a Coptic Christian. As for Klein himself, here's how the AP describes his background:
The Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors hate groups, said Klein is a former Marine and longtime religious-right activist who has helped train paramilitary militias at a California church. It described Klein as founder of Courageous Christians United, which conducts protests outside abortion clinics, Mormon temples and mosques.
OK, let's try to keep track of the players. There's Bacile/Nakoula who is either a Jew or a Coptic Christian. And there is Klein, a Marine who spends his time on anti-abortion protests, gives out conflicting information about Bacile/Nakoula and acted as an advisor to a little-known film project ... Desert Warrior.
Neither Klein nor Bacile/Nakoula seem to have any previous experience making films. Reuters reports that a screening of the film did not go over well ...
The largely obscure English-language film's low production values were evident in its stilted dialogue and wooden acting. Klein said there was an attempt to screen the full movie at a theater in southern California under a slightly different title, but after 30 minutes into the film no tickets had been sold.
The film was saved for posterity by firebrand pastor Terry Jones who has a history of incitement when it comes to Islamic issues. Here's how Iran's Press TV describes Terry Jones in a recent article entitled, "CIA, Mossad team up to insult Islamic values":
Jones, to most, is an uneducated and lower class figure in a backward area of the American south. His congregation is largely made of weak minded people on the fringe of society, easily coerced and influenced. He has few followers.
However, Jones has another following, one not so easy to detect. Jones moved to Germany in 1981 and established a religious cult in Cologne. Thus, his ties while there were with Israeli intelligence and the P2 Masonic lodge, better known as "Operation Gladio," the group responsible for the murder of Italian Prime Minister Aldo Moro and terror bombings that went on into the 90s.
Jones real background is that of an intelligence asset. His personal weakness is narcissism. His strength is his ability to hide behind what appears to be backward and ignorant exterior while actively working as an intelligence agent for a combination of rogue CIA elements, extremists in the former Stasi German group now called the DVD who partner with Israel's Mossad.
Jones is a spy, CIA trained, run by rogue handlers, and heavily promoted by Mossad elements throughout the Middle East and able to garner national news attention in the US when anyone else of his minor following and total lack of credibility would be ignored.
Instead, his every obscene move, his every blasphemy, from his tiny and forgotten church, reaches, not just the front page of every paper but is announced and spread throughout the Islamic world by the hundreds of Israeli agents that infiltrate every Mosque.
Unfortunately, this makes some sense, regardless of the source ... It's hard not to avoid the conclusion, dear reader, that we are once again seeing directed history at work.
In this case, a terrible film that could not attract viewers at its single screening has now convulsed the world. And let's not forget the Muslim Brotherhood. Wouldn't they make an appearance if this were "directed history"? Well, yes, they would and they have ... An article today in the Wall Street Journal tells us that "Karzai, Muslim Brotherhood Condemn Anti-Islam Movie." Here's some more:
Afghan President Hamid Karzai and Egypt's ruling Muslim Brotherhood Wednesday angrily denounced a U.S.-produced film harshly critical of the Prophet Muhammad, raising fears that a new wave of violent protests will follow Tuesday's attacks on U.S. diplomatic installations in Cairo and Benghazi, Libya.
Shortly after news emerged that the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other American diplomats were killed in Benghazi, the Afghan presidential palace released a statement condemning the "desecrating act" by the makers of the film, saying that its release "stoked interfaith enmity and confrontation, and badly impacted the peaceful coexistence between human beings."
Conclusion: Bear in mind this movie did not sell a single ticket when it was screened. Now it is the most important film on the planet.
Editor's Note: In addition to our write-up about this film there are now several other reports questioning the cast of characters surrounding "Desert Warrior" (now called "Innocence of Muslims") and the creation of the film itself, which looks as if it has been "repurposed" in a very clumsy way to further "incite" the Arab world. Given the clumsiness and obviousness of the film's manipulation, we confront a further fact of this Internet era, which is that the power elite is hardly bothering to hide its tracks anymore. Having been discovered and dissected, the powers-that-be show us they intend to continue with business as usual. It is a kind of intimidation. "Yes, you understand what we do, but it doesn't matter. You cannot stop us." In fact, this approach bodes terrible violence as the elites are giving up any pretense at justifying their actions. And manipulation without even a pretense of morality likely cannot stand.

The CIA/FBI spend millions on propaganda EVERY YEAR.
The CIA's Project MOCKINGBIRD
Who Controls the Media?
Soulless corporations do, of course. Corporations with grinning, double-breasted executives, interlocking directorates, labor squabbles and flying capital. Dow. General Electric. Coca-Cola. Disney. Newspapers should have mastheads that mirror the world: The Westinghouse Evening Scimitar, The Atlantic-Richfield Intelligentser . It is beginning to dawn on a growing number of armchair ombudsmen that the public print reports news from a parallel universe - one that has never heard of politically-motivated assassinations, CIA-Mafia banking thefts, mind control, death squads or even federal agencies with secret budgets fattened by cocaine sales - a place overrun by lone gunmen, where the CIA and Mafia are usually on their best behavior. In this idyllic land, the most serious infraction an official can commit __is a the employment of a domestic servant with (shudder) no residency status.
This unlikely land of enchantment is the creation of MOCKINGBIRD.
It was conceived in the late 1940s, the most frigid period of the cold war, when the CIA began a systematic infiltration of the corporate media, a process that often included direct takeover of major news outlets.
In this period, the American intelligence services competed with communist activists abroad to influence European labor unions. With or without the cooperation of local governments, Frank Wisner, an undercover State Department official assigned to the Foreign Service, rounded up students abroad to enter the cold war underground of covert operations on behalf of his Office of Policy Coordination. Philip Graham, a graduate of the Army Intelligence School in Harrisburg, PA, then publisher of the Washington Post., was taken under Wisner's wing to direct the program code-named Operation MOCKINGBIRD.
"By the early 1950s," writes formerVillage Voice reporter Deborah Davis in Katharine the Great, "Wisner 'owned' respected members of the New York Times, Newsweek, CBS and other communications vehicles, plus stringers, four to six hundred in all, according to a former CIA analyst." The network was overseen by Allen Dulles, a templar for German and American corporations who wanted their points of view represented in the public print. Early MOCKINGBIRD influenced 25 newspapers and wire agencies consenting to act as organs of CIA propaganda. Many of these were already run by men with reactionary views, among them William Paley (CBS), C.D. Jackson (Fortune), Henry Luce (Time) and Arthur Hays Sulzberger (N.Y. Times).
Activists curious about the workings of MOCKINGBIRD have since been appalled to find in FOIA documents that agents boasting in CIA office memos of their pride in having placed "important assets" inside every major news publication in the country. It was not until 1982 that the Agency openly admitted that reporters on the CIA payroll have acted as case officers to agents in the field.
"World War III has begun," Henry's Luce's Life declared in March, 1947. "It is in the opening skirmish stage already." The issue featured an excerpt of a book by James Burnham, who called for the creation of an "American Empire," "world-dominating in political power, set up at least in part through coercion (probably including war, but certainly the threat of war) and in which one group of people ... would hold more than its equal share of power."
George Seldes, the famed anti-fascist media critic, drew down on Luce in 1947, explaining that "although avoiding typical Hitlerian phrases, the same doctrine of a superior people taking over the world and ruling it, began to appear in the press, whereas the organs of Wall Street were much more honest in favoring a doctrine inevitably leading to war if it brought greater commercial markets under the American flag."
On the domestic front, an abiding relationship was struck between the CIA and William Paley, a wartime colonel and the founder of CBS. A firm believer in "all forms of propaganda" to foster loyalty to the Pentagon, Paley hired CIA agents to work undercover at the behest of his close friend, the busy grey eminence of the nation's media, Allen Dulles. Paley's designated go-between in his dealings with the CIA was Sig Mickelson, president of CBS News from 1954 to 1961.
The CIA's assimilation of old guard fascists was overseen by the Operations Coordination Board, directed by C.D. Jackson, formerly an executive of Time magazine and Eisenhower's Special Assistant for Cold War Strategy. In 1954 he was succeeded by Nelson Rockefeller, who quit a year later, disgusted at the administration's political infighting. Vice President Nixon succeeded Rockefeller as the key cold war strategist.
"Nixon," writes John Loftus, a former attorney for the Justice Department's Office of Special Investigations, took "a small boy's delight in the arcane tools of the intelligence craft - the hidden microphones, the 'black' propaganda." Nixon especially enjoyed his visit to a Virginia training camp to observe Nazis in the "special forces" drilling at covert operations.
One of the fugitives recruited by the American intelligence underground was heroin smuggler Hubert von Bl?cher, the son of A German ambassador. Hubert often bragged that that he was trained by the Abwehr, the German military intelligence division, while still a civilian in his twenties. He served in a recon unit of the German Army until forced out for medical reasons in 1944, according to his wartime records. He worked briefly as an assistant director for Berlin-Film on a movie entitled One Day ... , and finished out the war flying with the Luftwaffe, but not to engage the enemy - his mission was the smuggling of Nazi loot out of the country. His exploits were, in part, the subject of Sayer and Botting's Nazi Gold, an account of the knockover of the Reichsbank at the end of the war.
In 1948 he flew the coop to Argentina. Posing as a photographer named Huberto von Bleucher Corell, he immediately paid court to Eva Peron, presenting her with an invaluable Gobelin tapestry (a selection from the wealth of artifacts confiscated by the SS from Europe's Jews?). Hubert then met with Martin Bormann at the Hotel Plaza to deliver German marks worth $80 million. The loot financed the birth of the National Socialist Party in Argentina, among other forms of Nazi revival.
In 1951, Hubert migrated northward and took a job at the Color Corporation of America in Hollywood. He eked out a living writing scripts for the booming movie industry. His voice can be heard on a film set in the Amazon, produced by Walt Disney. Nine years later he returned to Buenos Aires, then Dusseldorf, West Germany, and established a firm that developed not movie scripts, but anti-chemical warfare agents for the government. At the Industrie Club in Dusseldorf in 1982, von Blucher boasted to journalists, "I am chief shareholder of Pan American Airways. I am the best friend of Howard Hughes. The Beach Hotel in Las Vegas is 45 percent financed by me. I am thus the biggest financier ever to appear in the Arabian Nights tales dreamed up by these people over their second bottle of brandy."
Not really. Two the biggest financiers to stumble from the drunken dreams of world-moving affluence were, in their time, Moses Annenberg, publisher of The Philadelphia Inquirer, and his son Walter , the CIA/mob-anchored publisher of the TV Guide. Like most American high-rollers, Annenberg lived a double life. Moses, his father, was a scion of the Capone mob. Both Moses and Walter were indicted in 1939 for tax evasions totalling many millions of dollars - the biggest case in the history of the Justice Department. Moses pled guilty and agreed to pay the government $8 million and settle $9 million in assorted tax claims, penalties and interest debts. Moses received a three-year sentence. He died in Lewisburg Penitentiary.

And as crazy and as simple as it is, is the following short read the most likely mad answer, annmarie ……. Click to view link
What do you do with heavenly weaponed armies in an age and place of peace? What else would their funding be spent on … or who else would receive the trillions to play with ... . and thus render future penniless, current recipients and beneficiaries?
Man is not very bright at the top of big business so keeping things simple always has one seeing the truth in the foundations of the bigger picture which spawns all manner smoke and mirror operations/alternate reality games.
Thus is one confronted with the undeniable fact that life is an existence in a virtual reality [point 1] and control is immaculately powered and remotely controlled with expert ease and expertise in Live Operational Virtual Environments [point 2]
Points 3 and 4 ….. You cannot alter that fact other than by drivering the virtual realities in whatever direction you are able or enabled to assist in, is something you would need to understand and/or just accept to be of any use in shaping the Future as IT Presents it as Fabulous News to replace the Ignorant and Arrogant Follies which extraordinarily rendered the Past.
And the West has been advised of such as is, [and Google delivers the goods on that with a page when searching with the pretext …. "AIPinging of the White House for Intelligence, Opportunity and Curiosity. …. The Holy Trinity for Live LOVE Action and requiring a Clearly Positive Response in order to please the Ladies and show you really dare care."] and the East is invited to learn more of the perceptive meme methodology, and would be another point, and Point 5, and worthy of consideration.
In an age in space whenever machines put robots to roam and probe alien environments on Mars, Man is still hurling all manner of rocks at each other and baying like primitive animals as they engage in idiot violence and mindless destruction against themselves, and all for what? Pray tell one and all, what is the coveted grand prize?

Even if the film was not the brain child of some CIA/Pentagon/Rand mutha luver... .the idea to promote it came straight out of the divide and conquer school of 'lets run the masses based on their passions'... ..
Everyone had expected maybe some kind of terror attack at the olympics... .they all breathed a sigh of relief... ... .besides most people had become bored with the war on terror and were more concerned about their pension funds…..the intelligensia having realised that the primary reason for troops of any denomination in that area of the world

as most folks will know …on you tube there are all kinds of monstorous hate films people who hate blacks people who hate whites people who hate chinese people who hate meat eaters… hindus…muslims…christians …mormons…buddhists…..upper class working class etc etc….as well as films of people eating their own excrement…or raping children….or some kind or other morally outrageous behaviour……and they(the films) get a relatively small viewing……
yet some one (pastor jones/black ops/psy ops) managed to get all these leaders of various muslim groups (some undoubtedly agent provocatuers/demagogues) to fire up their constituencies and go on the rampage……and at the same time the security at the US consulate in Libya is allowed to be lapse (and some one locked the ambassador in a panic room full of smoke)…….
well as I see it the whole black op/psy op was a way to get more military assets/equipment to that region of the world… as well as get rid of a diplomat that had served his purpose... ... ..also it allows the US military/pentagon to say… all our embassies world wide are now under potential threat so in order to protect our 'territory' (embassies are regarded as part of the foreign country) we must now send our marines/delta force/navy seal assasins… warships… drones… electromagetic/sound weapons etc ….to all four corners of the globe….
For goodness sake…….if a cabal of intelligence folks collapse the world trade centre just to futher their own ends and increase their 'holdings'…they would not hesitate to sacrifice one of their pawns on the great game chess board……

If you haven't watched the movie, do so, or at least screen a few of the scenes.
You'll arrive at the same conclusion I did. This is really bad cinematography. It's not "so bad it's funny" ; it is so bad it is painful.
How on earth did this go viral? I have seen a dozen youtube videos that depict Mohammad and cover all the same bad deeds he has done. Some are enactments, some are animated, some are comic books and some are documentaries. Most are openly written by Jewish or Christian Americans.
Why would these other videos that are watchable, depict Mohammad and show him in a bad light; exist for years on youtube with nothing but outraged comments?
Then this silly thing come along and half the world is watching it?

EXACTLY. This has been going on for years, since Oklahoma City or maybe earlier. Anyone who pays the slightest attention can see their hand in the many false flags and other events, and they want us to see it. The oblivious are easily lead while the savvy are terrorized--or more correctly filled with feelings of helplessness and hopelessness--by knowing.

I figured this all out yesterday !!!!
Israel could not get America to back them to attack Iran.
So they went around us and produced, and backed this anti muslim movie.
Now things will get out of hand and America will be forced into defending itself in the middle east.
The motto of the mossad is "War by deception"
And no country in this world is more deceptive then Israel.
This may very well lead to WWWlll.
The jews that produced and funded this move knew exactly what would happen.
I have not seen this movie and don't want to, but with the help of sites like facebook this muslim movement will get worse and worse !!!!!
Thanks Israel, you will be responsible for the death of many many people.
I am sure you are not Gods chosen !!!!!
More like the devil chosen people !!!!!!!

Public diplomacy in Israel (also hasbara) (Hebrew: ??????) refers to public relations efforts to disseminate information about Israel. The term is used by the Israeli government and its supporters to describe efforts to explain government policies and promote Israel in the face of negative press, and to counter what they see as delegitimisation of Israel around the world. Hasbara means "explanation", and is also a euphemism for propaganda.
While hasbara literally means "explanation", its exact import in its current usage is debated. Gideon Meir has said that there is no "real, precise" translation of the word hasbara in English or any other language, and has characterized it as public diplomacy, an action undertaken by all governments around the world with the growing importance of what Harvard professor Joseph Nye termed soft power. Gary Rosenblatt describes it as "advocacy".
Hasbara has been described as "pro-Israel propaganda," but while "propaganda strives to highlight the positive aspects of one side of a conflict, hasbara seeks to explain actions, whether or not they are justified."
Historian Giora Goodman considers "hasbara" to mean "propaganda" in practice, explaining
The term "propaganda" acquired a pejorative sense during the first half of the twentieth century. Accordingly, British and American propagandists used "information" to describe their work and the positive-sounding word hasbara has generally been preferred in Hebrew. "Propaganda", ta’amula in Hebrew, is mostly reserved for what opponents do, but the term was often used by the Zionist movement to portray its own efforts to influence mass audiences.

No way to tell if it's authentic, but here it is:
"I received this in a private message last night:
FROM A FRIEND: Intel From Israel on Whats getting set to Happen in the Middle East. My brother and his family live in Jerusalem - he is a minister - and a former Navy SEAL - his office is close to one of Israel 's largest underground military bases.
He called me last night which is very unusual - usually it is email. He called to tell me that he is sending his family back to the US immediately due to what he is seeing happen within the last week and what he is being told by his military contacts in both the Israel and US military. He said he is seeing with his own eyes military movements the likes of which he has never seen in his 20+ years in Israel . What he called a massive redeployment and protective tactics of forces is underway.
Over the last two days he has seen anti-aircraft missile deployments throughout the Jerusalem area including 3 mobile units that he can see from his office windows. In addition, he has seen very large Israeli armored columns moving fast toward the Synai where Egypt has now moved in Armor.
There are reports of the top military leaders meeting with Israel 's Sr. Rabi which is something that has happened preceding every prior military campaign. His admonition is to watch carefully and pray for Israel and its people. He is convinced that barring something extraordinary Israel will attack Iran - with or without the US - and very soon.
It is the belief in Israel that Obama does not stand with Israel but with the Arab countries. He has told me before that Israel will saber rattle from time to time but that this time is very different from what he is seeing and hearing. He was at the Wailing Wall 2 days ago and there were hundreds of IDF soldiers there.
As he was leaving he passed at least 20 military buses full of soldiers in route to the wall. HE has never seen this before either. Just thought I would pass this along. My brother is not an alarmist by any means. When he talks like this it gets my attention for sure and usually I find he knows more than he shares.
here are reports that Israel is asking Obama to come to Israel immediately but they are being answered with silence. My opinion is that I see the making of the perfect storm. Sep 11, 2012"

To me, this proves the CIA and Mossad were behind it all. And now their official mouthpiece is laying the groundwork for martial law.
I am getting reports from a FB acquaintance with relatives in Israel that a massive military operation is underway, serious enough for them to come back to the U.S. for 'vacation'. This from someone who buys the Mitt Kool-Aid. Now she is just scared for her family members.
Perhaps we could get lucky. Perhaps the psy-ops, the troop and naval movements, the coordinated attacks on embassies, the coordinated Bibi snubbing, the internet fear/hate campaign, and all the rest are just a contingency plan being made ready.
Perhaps, if yesterday's announcement by the Fed that QE will go on forever DOESN'T topple the worldwide financial house of cards, then they won't pull the trigger.
But if the markets take a nosedive or people begin to flee from bonds, I am convinced a hot war will be started, for all the usual reasons. Those reasons being: "WWII got us out of the depression." "Obama is not weak, see?" (But if CIA wants him gone, he will be made to look weak.) "Stop whining about your money or we'll give you something to really whine about."
As Tolstoyan notes above, the fear/hatred campaign has been amped up to the maximum on the internet. This is intelligence agencies making their best attempt at leveraging social media and the herd of useful idiots. If they can incite riots in the Middle East with such ease, just imagine what they can do in the U.S.
Every button in the psyops arsenal is being pushed. I worry that we are about to face the test of a lifetime.

Western Liberalism is presenting it as an issue of freedom of expression... everyone, anyone and anything can be insulted. Of course this is great in theory however in actual practice it is divide and rule and creating conflict while the banking elites control the rest of us.
Liberalism is intolerant of any other view... .if Islam does not agree with its view of freedom of expression then Islam is at fault and needs to change. All this is being debated endlessly in the mainstream mass media... .never is the banking system ever debated, never is the concept and practice of interest and usury questioned.

[quote]"There are many disturbing facts about these attacks that raise many troubling questions. For this reason, today I am calling on (two Senate committees) to hold hearings immediately on the lack of intelligence, security, and appropriate response," he said. "We must have answers to these questions to prevent similar attacks in the future."
Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., after an intelligence briefing, also said Thursday that host countries need to do more to protect U.S. diplomatic compounds.[/quote] …. from that Fox

Here is something else which may call into question exactly what it is such protection would be supporting, and have many legitimately questioning the future suitability of the low standard of intelligence being supplied for political/diplomatic/fiat capitalist capture missionary work ……. which in the corrupted and perversely informed West has QE fiat currency brokers and international banking systems [two very subversive creatures/sub-prime intelligent creationist entities] thinking to take over national governments as if new minted absolute sovereign masters of all that they covet ….. for the standard of intelligence required for Future Building does not suffer the Folly of Fools with Arsenals of Tools for Creation of Debilitating Debt, and anything less than required will be the Deliverer of Colossal Chaos and Self-Destructive Anarchy.
And to imagine that a Glorious Future is to be anything like the Present Blighted Reality in an age whenever AI and Virtual Reality Programs and SMARTR Projects stalk/talk/challenge/topple/edutain/invite markets to lead in Fab Fabless directions, is to fool oneself and be proven a sheep, and sheep in wolves clothing if in any organisation remotely with power, as opposed to a Great Shepherd.

Do you think the masses have realised that politicians and diplomats are as virtual architects of all of their woes and would need to experience their extremes of suffering to educate them as to the traumatic effects that their ignorance and arrogance shared in fields have?
Or is that only realised by a few who can virtualise matter[s].
Which reminds me of ….. 'Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.' [/quote]

I also found it sickening how quickly the anti-Muslim hysteria sprang up on the Internet as well. There is incessant talk of "nuking them all" and Mohammed bashing ad nauseum. The Establishment has their paid shills blogging all over the Internet trying to create further animosity across the world. I just hope our Muslim anti-Establishment brethren can see through the farce.

Found something new. For some idiotic reason, there were no marine guards at the embassy.
"there were no Marines guarding the compound Tuesday in eastern Libya -- a still-restive region."

There are dozens of marines guarding the Embassy in Kathmandu but,,, none in Libya???
BTW, the Marine bar in Kathmandu is the place to be on a Friday night.
