On September 24, 2014, the United Nations passed a resolution paving the way to open-ended "anti-terror" warfare against the Islamic State (IS), the "network of death", promising a war that will "last for years".
The "war on the Islamic State" is a lie. It is the same fetid Big Lie that is the "war on terrorism", reheated and updated with new, bloodier special effects, new propaganda, a familiar but revised cast of demonic villains and a new military attack calendar.
Three thousand lives were sacrificed on 9/11 for the fabricated "war on terrorism" against "Al-Qaeda" and Osama bin Laden. Now, thirteen years of continuous imperial onslaught and tens of thousands of deaths and atrocities later, the "Islamic State" escalation will topple Syria, Iran, transform Iraq, and provide yet another pretext to wreak havoc anywhere else the empire wishes.
