BFP Food for Thought: Trying to See the Forest despite the Trees…

…and Finding Some Ones

Can we just step back for a few minutes, put aside all the little meddling points showcased by the propaganda machine media and political showmen, take a look at the following facts, and try to see the forest despite the trees?

An ‘alleged’ Mastermind executes a terror attack on September 11, 2001, with a few men, to be exact 19.

Our government responds by sending over at least 150,000 men and women.

 That ‘alleged’ Mastermind implements the 9/11 terror plot with a few hundred thousand dollars; in the range of $400,000.

Our government spends more than $1,000,000,000,000 in response, on wars on terror abroad, at least that much here at home, and keeps on spending.

Our government has been using lots of this:


To bomb the hell out of this:


Because we have this:


And they have only this:


The 9/11 Terrorist Attack cost us 2977 innocent lives. 19 terrorists’ also died on that day; resulting in 2996 deaths.

 In Afghanistan alone our government’s response has resulted in the deaths of more than 2600 coalition forces, at least 10,000 civilians, and many more thousands lumped together as Taliban, Militants or  simply unknown; our estimated total around 20,000.

We suffered greatly as a result of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, with 2977 deaths, nearly 7000 treated for injuries, and tens of thousands suffering the losses of their loved ones.

As a nation we’ve been suffering continuously since then; for almost a decade: with thousands of our soldiers killed, many more thousands wounded, and many many more thousands of these men and women’s loved ones suffering the results. We have also been suffering the loss of trillions of our hard-earned tax dollars. For a decade; Continuously.

As a nation we’ve been causing lots of suffering too; for a decade; continuously. With tens of thousands of people we’ve killed and seriously injured, and with many more tens of thousands of orphans and loved ones left behind to suffer those losses.

Tens of thousands of lives. Trillions of dollars. Tens of thousands of disabled; orphans, and widows. Suffering there. Suffering here.

There must be ‘some ones’ out there immune to all this suffering. Obviously those ‘some ones’ have not been suffering. In fact ‘some ones’ must be gaining a lot from all this suffering.  And maybe, considering the tremendous level of ‘gains’ involved, ‘some ones’ actually want, thus, start and inflict the suffering. Otherwise what could ever explain this insanity?

Tens of thousands of lives lost there. Thousands of lives lost here. Tens of thousands more in pain; and many more mourning. Millions deprived of Trillions of hard-earned dollars. And there are those ‘some ones’ who have been earning billions of dollars from many millions’ sufferings; for almost a decade, and, continuously.

Who could these ‘some ones’ be? Any food for thought?

    Nice posting!

    Wonder if there’s any relationship of ‘someones’ in your posting to the 16 trillion in secret loans to ‘someones’ corporations, banks et al?

    The Eye Popping Fed Audit

    There is no better example of the US government’s attitude of “let them eat cake” than the following alert presented by Vermont’s Senator Bernie Sanders, who is the longest serving independent member of Congress in American history… I implore you to read — and then re-read — the results of this critical investigation.

    The first top-to-bottom audit of the Federal Reserve uncovered eye-popping new details about how the U.S. provided a whopping $16 trillion in secret loans to bail out American and foreign banks and businesses during the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. An amendment by Sen. Bernie Sanders to the Wall Street reform law passed one year ago this week directed the Government Accountability Office to conduct the study. “As a result of this audit, we now know that the Federal Reserve provided more than $16 trillion in total financial assistance to some of the largest financial institutions and corporations in the United States and throughout the world,” said Sanders. “This is a clear case of socialism for the rich and rugged, you’re-on-your-own individualism for everyone else.”

    well, between you and me… I imagine these ‘someones’ are same ‘someones’ who ran a primetime news story I watched back in the late 80’s about an american spy who had gone rogue. I suspect I saw it on 60 Minutes. If memory serves me correctly, it was Daine Sawyer who sat down with a representive from the CIA to discuss the impact of operative ‘Osama Bin Laden’ switching his allegence away from the CIA. She asked the CIA what this would mean to the war in Afghanistan.
    Unfortunately, I havent been able to find this news story. The archives I found only went back as far as 1990. However, I did find out one interesting thing. Diane Sawyer dated Charlie Wilson. I believe that’s how she got the scoop.
    If I had friends over there at 60 minutes, I’d have them search the archives. I believe they’d either find a season that was missing an episode or they’d find an episode of 60 minutes that was only 40 minutes long.
