Unmasking the Real Terrorists

For so long we in the UK have been asked to believe the governmental proposition that combating 'the threat of terrorism' is a national priority for which our hard earned taxes are indispensable. We have repeatedly been told that it's for 'our national security' that the US/UK and other European accomplices send their military into Middle Eastern countries to topple heads of state, destroy infrastructure and subject tens of thousands of men, women and children to an untimely death from bombs and bullets. 

We were, in Libya's case, even told by serious looking politicians in grey suits, that the invasion was a 'humanitarian intervention' and that the death and destruction which accompanied it was a necessary part of 'protecting civilians' against the edicts of their own ruler.

All the while, here at home, a steady build up of high-tech surveillance equipment has been tracking us as we go about our daily business. CCTV cameras, emails, text messages, telephone conversations, cash machines, credit cards, satellite images, all these and more can now be accessed in the supposed interests of curtailing potential home-based 'terrorist' activity. So much so, that it appears we are now all viewed as potential threats to the nation.

Ever since 9/11 and the pinpointing of its perpetrators as a handful of penniless Arabs somewhere in the mountains of Afghanistan, we have been paying out of our own pockets to be protected from mythical 'evil empires', demagogic tyrants and crazed despots, only to find that we are also now conjoined with them on the suspect list.
