"I've come upon something that disturbs me deeply. We have fought hard and long for integration, as I believe we should have, and I know that we will win. But I've come to believe we're integrating into a burning house."
– Martin Luther King, Jr.How is the current conflict in the Middle East countries ("the war on terror") not a reprise of the Crusades? Is it Christian dogma motivating these anarchistic sociopaths and psychopaths who are playing with our lives daily on the world stage? It's being sold and may look plausible, except it is a complete lie. The Middle East conflict is not "a clash of civilizations" of Christians vs. Muslims, although there is a lot of manipulation, disinformation and lies driving the narrative that it is.
We all know now (some of us knew then!) that these were all lies and disinformation to get us into a war. That's clear. What's less clear is why the Bush cabal were not indicted for war crimes. Dick Cheney is sought out for his opinion of Donald Trump wanting to bar Muslims from entering the U.S. No surprise, Fox found a "Muslim leader" who supports a ban. That's not going to happen. Trump knows it and the Republicans know it. It's great theater, though. It might just get Hillary Clinton elected (that's just the obvious political strategy: look he's insane. Now Billary's looking like the sane anti-"The Donald" presidential candidate).
Firstly, the theory is highly implausible. This is not a religious conflict, given the obvious perks (if you're a greedy psychopath) of control of oil revenue, kickbacks, genocide (depopulation is always on the white supremacist system's agenda) and war profits.
Christians belonging to secret societies [Skull & Bones, Illuminati, Masons... ] and other cultish government insider groups, plan and execute the invasion of the former site of a key ancient city depicted in their bible as being the site of “the whore of Babylon” and lay waste to it. Does it have any connection to their religious beliefs? Ancient grudges, fulfillment of prophecies... a bet (huh?*)? What the heck is going on here?
Some Background: Did the ancient city of Babylon exist, and if so, in what country would it be today? The answer — the ruins of Babylon are in modern-day Iraq:
'Its extensive ruins on the Euphrates River about 55 miles (88 kilometres) south of Baghdad lie near the modern town of al- Hillah, Iraq.'
We can't get a straight answer from George W. Bush (you know, he is on drugs), but he did say this back in 2001:
"... this crusade, this war on terrorism, is going to take awhile." He and other US officials have said that renegade (CIA operative!) Islamic fundamentalist Osama bin Laden is the most likely suspect in the attacks."How did the Bush administration know by 9/13/2001 who was behind 9/11, given the FBI admission that they have no hard evidence on OBL? If OBL didn't do it, who are the evildoers behind 9/11?

The above article is a must read. Planting the seeds of disinformation? This gem:
"...We have to avoid a clash of civilizations at all costs," French foreign minister Hubert Vedrine said on Sunday. "One has to avoid falling into this huge trap, this monstrous trap" which he said had been "conceived by the instigators of the assault."
This excerpt from an article about Babylon speaks to the reputation of the place in ancient times.
"... Having laid waste to fortress city after city and enslaving untold thousands in their path, the Assyrians were as much hated as feared, their self-styled kings of kings often celebrating their heavy-bearded macho with cruelty to their humiliated captives, like brutal Ashur-Nasirpal II (ruling 883-859 BCE) boasting of “cutting off lips, noses, ears of rebels” and elsewhere of putting out the eyes of royal children in front of their parents and dragging the kings and queens away with bronze hooks in their tongues.
The little book of Nahum in the Hebrew Minor Prophets sings a false lament with relief about Nineveh’s fall: “Woe to the city of blood, full of plunder, never without victims, the crack of whips, piles of dead… Nineveh in ruins, who will mourn for her?”Perhaps the modern day "king of kings" should take heed to what happened to Babylon and why it fell:
"... the upstart Babylonian leader Nabopolassar laid siege to Nineveh in 612 BCE when Assyrian power was waning, when the plundering had stopped and there was nothing left to fill their coffers. Perhaps an economy based on vassalage tribute, plunder and loot had been artificially engorged and was collapsing on itself."

Maps of the Middle East, then and now
The Crusades were military campaigns sanctioned by the Catholic Church in the Middle Ages. In 1095 Byzantine Emperor Alexios I, in Constantinople, sent an ambassador to Pope Urban II in Italy pleading for military help against the growing Turkish threat. The Pope responded promptly by calling Catholic soldiers to join the First Crusade. The immediate goal was to guarantee pilgrims access to the holy sites in the Holy Land under Muslim control. His long-range goal was to reunite the Eastern and Western branches of Christendom after their split in 1054 with the pope as head of the united Church. A complex 200-year struggle ensued. -- wikipedia
Between 1982 and 1989, Iraqi president Saddam Hussein ordered Babylon's walls rebuilt in the fashion of Nebuchadnezzar II. Hussein also built one of his own grand palaces near the site. Today, the baked-mud bricks are about all that's left of Babylon's ancient grandeur.
The walls of Babylon
Babylon (Akkadian: Bābili or Babilim; Arabic: بابل, Bābil) was a significant city in ancient Mesopotamia, in the fertile plain between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. [-wiki]
Famed for its gardens and ziggurats, the ancient city of Babylon is now little but dust in the Iraqi desert. Babylon was perhaps the first big city in the world, dating to the third millennium BC. It stood by the Euphrates River on an important trade route. Various dynasties ruled the city-state as it grew to govern much of ancient Mesopotamia. The city was destroyed in 689 BC and rebuilt to achieve its greatest size glory under the ruler Nebuchadnezzar II, who reigned from 605 to 538 BC. He is credited with building the hanging gardens, named by contemporaries as one of the Seven Wonders of the World. In 330 BC, Alexander the Great captured Babylon, planning to make it the capital of his empire. But he died soon after taking the city, and his successors built a new capital called Seleucia on the Tigris River. Most of Babylon's population moved to Seleucia, and Babylon withered and practically disappeared by the seventh century AD. Babylon's ruins are near the modern city of Al Hillah and about 55 miles south of Iraq's capital of Baghdad. Much of the ancient site has been looted, and only fragments of some building foundations remain.
It has been estimated that Babylon was the largest city in the world from c. 1770 to 1670 BC, and again between c. 612 and 320 BC. It was perhaps the first city to reach a population above 200,000. Estimates for the maximum extent of its area range from 890 to 900 hectares (2,200 acres). The remains of the city are in present-day Hillah, Babil Governorate, Iraq, about 85 kilometers (53 mi) south of Baghdad, comprising a large tell of broken mud-brick buildings and debris.
Military shadow government, conspiracies, sexual perversions, homosexuality, bi-sexuality, cross-dressing, blackmail, secret societies, assassinations, intrigue, war, games ... fun times. It's dark in their heads and in that coffin or dead zone where their hearts are supposed to be, really, really bad things are happening or being planned. However, this worldwide global plot is not, repeat not a crusade. What's on the agenda is more gross, revolting, criminal and evil than one could have ever imagined.
