"The French Connection," a new intro by b. traven Recent events in France remind us of the chaos that our “intelligence” agencies have brought to the world. “Je suis Charlie.” Thank you CIA, Saudi, and Israeli intelligence. We’re all “Charlie” because after several years of drone warfare making us “safer” in Yemen we have two brothers who massacred the staff of a cartoon magazine in Paris. Your excellent intelligence and intervention in Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Afghanistan, and we might add Ukraine, have brought the current western world not safety but direct violent fallout and blowback as a result of your ill-advised ventures to advance Western imperialism throughout the world. The brothers who murdered the staff at Charlie Hebdo were trained and indoctrinated in the midst of your drone attacks in Yemen. That intervention backed by the Saudis has changed that sorry country from a corrupt, repressive state to a totally failed state more like Somalia. Let’s also chalk that one up to the other violent gangster who murdered four people in a Paris Jewish deli. Now we hear about the Belgium shootout with a group of Belgium citizens trained in ISIS-controlled Syria-Iraq who apparently came back home to spread carnage long after G.W. Bush declared “mission accomplished” in Iraq. Now ISIS controls a good portion of Iraq. So while we continue to pursue this perpetual war on “terrorism,” and to receive lectures on how our “intelligence” services must ignore the Constitution and violate our privacy to control terrorism we are finding ourselves more vulnerable to killers being trained in the Middle East thirteen years after we brought “democracy” to their shores. With success like that, who needs failures?
