Tum Ta Tum Tum!

Grab the antacid, Michael Chertoff, head of Homeland Security, has a "gut feeling" that we are in for something nasty from the "tearists" this summer. The queasiness Mr. Chertoff feels may be the result of the recent attacks in Great Britain, or so one is inclined to think. After all, if it happens there, it can (and will?) certainly happen here, right? Of course, being of a "conspiratorial" bent, meaning, I believe that people in power do convene with one another in such forums as the Trilateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations, and Bilderbeger Group, (to name a few secretive organizations of the powerful) and subsequently plan and implement policies to maintain their hold on the reins of power, my tendency is to think that any terrorism that may occur would be of the false flag variety.

In any event, Mr. Chertoff's "gut feeling" could just be more scaremongering, as there never seems to be a shortage of that these days. In any case, be mindful that whenever the PTB show a desire to have the attention of the populace diverted, a terrorist attack is just the ticket. Recall that 9/11 came in the teeth of the last recession, and nicely provided the lie as to why the stock market and general economy looked sicker than a picnicker with salmonella. My view at present is that the economy here in Freedom's Land, what with such doleful events as a collapsing currency, a fast spreading sub-prime mortgage contagion/housing debacle, etc. etc., is in deep do-do, and therefore the need for diversions of the 9/11 sort, is growing fast. One always does well to ask, when analyzing events driven by we humans, who benefits?

If something does happen, I'm sure that someone will try to laud accolades on Chertoff for his prescient gut. Meanwhile, us more cynical types will think otherwise.

Are we cynical, or simply cold eyed realists?

Well, I'd opt for the latter but sunnier types might not agree.
