Asian Century By Herman Tiu Laurel
Not many today who were already old enough would remember or at least give importance to what is now known in history as the 9/11 Terror Attack on the World Trade Center (WTC) Twin Towers of 2001. I do.
Every year, I have a public commemoration in one form or another, of the events that justified the American “Deep State” to launch its global serial war projects in pursuit of the plans of its think tank “Project for a New American Century” (PNAC).
It’s no longer easy to access truthful and scientific information on exactly what happened that day in New York. when the two 110-floors of Buildings 1 and 2 of the World Trade Tower collapsed into their own footprints in less than 10 seconds after two passenger airliners were deliberately crashed into them by alleged “Arab terrorists” the majority of whom were later identified as Saudi nationals. 2996 passengers, mostly Americans, were killed in the crash of the two airliners.
The Sept. 11 Twin Tower attacks, which were blamed by the U.S. on Al Qaeda, became the justification for President George W. Bush, Junior’s “War On Terror” and to launch an attack against Iraq, then Afghanistan and so on for twenty years. Ironically, Iraq was an enemy of Al Qaeda, which exposed the first flaw of the US narrative. Moreover, scientifically implausible collapse of two structurally-supported towers due to fire in less than 10 seconds spurred disbelief.
A” New Pearl Harbor” and Financial Bonanza
At least 1/3 of Americans believe strongly that the official government explanation of 9/11 tragedy as a terror attack is the cover-up of a Bush government-financial oligarchy-Deep State conspiracy based on a plan entitled “Rebuilding American’s Defenses” that was written by the neo-conservative PNAC after the fall of the Soviet Union that envisioned a Uni-Polar World where no peer power can challenge U.S. global hegemony.
The PNAC’s paper “Rebuilding American’s Defenses” cited the need for “A New Pearl Harbor” to galvanize Americans to support massive defense spending for global domination. That New Pearl Harbor was the attack on the 9/11 Twin Towers. The shock and awe of the explosions, building destruction and almost 3,000 deaths pushed Americans to welcome Bush’s “Patriot Act” that curtailed civil liberties, justified massive military budget hikes and the subsequent attacks on Iraq, Afghanistan and others.
The U.S. financial oligarchy’s interest was in play as well. Dick Cheney, Bush Jr,’s Vice President, was chief executive of Halliburton that earned $ 39.5-billion from the Iraq War, while Jewish financier Larry Silverstein, who had bought the WTC complex for a down payment of $ 491-million and gotten an insurance package of $ 3.44-bilion to cover “terror attacks” just two months before, earned $ 4.6-billion in insurance pay outs. In the end, it was really all worth it for co-conspirators Bush-Cheney, Silverstein and Saudi Arabia.
Why Saudi Arabia? The Bush family and the Bin Laden Saudi family have long been business partners. In fact, Osama bin Laden, and Al Qaeda’s chief, had been the US. proxy warrior in the Afghan War against the Soviet occupation. Interestingly, while the 9/11 terror attack chaos was playing out in the US and all air traffic had been stopped, the U.S. gave special authorization and flight permission for the Bin Laden Family and staff, all 140 of them, to fly over a dozen planes out of the U.S.
Controlled Demolition, explosive facts
Scientific facts are impossible to refute. The US government’s official explanation for the collapse of the 9/11 WTC buildings collapses, which are attributed to burning jet fuel that melted the buildings’ structural steel, simply defies science.
Jet fuel burns from 800° to 1,500° Fahrenheit, while the melting point of structural steel is much higher at 2,750° Fahrenheit or above. While Popular Mechanics argues that steel is only half as strong when heated to 1,100°, half as strong is still strong, and the concrete around the steel adds even more strength.
The collapse of the two 110-story buildings onto their own footprints in less than 10 seconds also defies scientific explanation. While thee collapsing was almost at the speed of gravity, the sheer mass of the buildings should have resisted the downward force of the collapse but they didn’t.
The collapse of the buildings was similar the action of an accordion pushed down straight into its own base, neither leaning left nor right. And, as anyone can see from the videos, how does concrete explode into dust?
It appears that explosives were planted months before, when each section of the buildings had been closed for “repairs; traces of Thermite, an explosive that cuts through steel, were found in the debris. Most damning of all, however, is the 50-story Building 7, which also collapsed onto its own footprint in seconds even if it was not hit by planes nor jet fuel.
BBC reporter Jane Stanley was seen reporting the collapse of Building 7 on TV even while it was still standing; Building 7 actually collapsed ten minutes later, forcing the BBC to suddenly cut the report.
The “Inside Job” reports
To review the data on collapses of the WTC Twin Towers and Building 7, I researched on Google but could only find the “revisionist” version defending the US government explanation for the incident. In the years immediately after 2001, I found the most compelling explanations from “Loose Change 9/11”, a 2-hour video detailing all the questionable issues leading to and after the tower attacks.
Unfortunately, I can’t find this anymore. However, Director Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 9/11” can still be viewed and I recommend everybody watch it. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q6lcP2f6Nvs )
The “conspiracy theorists” against the US government allegations are not run-of-the-mill individuals. They have organized themselves into “Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth”, which now consists of at least 3,000 certified professional architect, engineers, physicists, scientists, and families of the victims of the 9/11 towers. They sustain public education and discussion of the legitimate questions about the official story about 911, that Al Qaeda planned and jet fuel burned and collapsed the WTC towers including Building 7.
I watched the WTC towers go down in 2001, rising from my bed at noon on September 12. Manila time. in the weeks and months that passed, I watched every media report.. I was amazed at how the global media was being manipulated to brainwash the global public with the official “al-Qaeda and Jet Fuel” narrative. I said then that one cannot understand the power of media to control the mind of humanity, unless she or he appreciates how global media can cover up such an “inside job.”
Over the decades the truth persists
I was 50 years old when the 9/11 Terror Attack “inside job” happened; I am now 71 years old. Many citizens of European countries are already questioning the official narrative of 9/11; so, do 1/3 of the Americans themselves. I have since used the 9/11 story test to evaluate the intelligence of people. Today, 98% of the people I ask still believe that only two towers collapsed, remaining unaware of Building 7. This is how effective global media has managed to kept the global public ignorant of the crucial facts.
When I asked Architect Palafox about 9/11, he answered that the jet fuel from the airliners had collapsed the buildings. I then considered him to be among the straightforward, if not ignorant, people of my acquaintance. Since he is very intelligent, I concluded that he was protecting his relations with the powers that may grant him mega-architectural projects. Media workers in the U.S. have also admitted they are part of the cover-up to protect their jobs. To know more, please watch the 9/11 Truth interviews ( https://www.ae911truth.org/ ).
Recently, Voltairenet.org ( https://www.voltairenet.org/article217802.html ) reported that “’China takes a stand on 9/11’…Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lijan Zhao tweeted on 16 August 2022 that the United States (not al-Qaeda) masterminded the September 11, 2001 attacks. Until now, Chinese officials have only privately expressed their skepticism about the official version of the 9/11 attacks. Now, they’ve taken it one step further. Only Sheikh Zayed, Hugo Chávez, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Fidel Castro and Donald Trump had taken the liberty of broaching this taboo subject in public.”
The 9/11 Terror lies must be exposed
I appeal to the readers of this piece to help in exposing the lies of the American Deep State and conspirators of the 9/11 Terror Attacks. To this day, the lies of these conspirators continue to cause real world problems, both for us living and those still to enter the world of the living. The “Forever Wars” brought by the 9/11 lies are now haunting us in Ukraine and the Taiwan issue, with the AUKUS, 5 Eyes, SK-US and Japan-US military alliances threatening to escalate a nuclear Armageddon in our Asian neighborhood.
The Philippine ambassador to the US is now announcing that the US will be allowed to use the EDCA bases in the event of a US war over Taiwan, thus inviting China’s retaliation if this ever comes about. Meanwhile, NATO war planes are landing in Australia for military drills for the forthcoming war in our region.
Former Prime Minister Mohamad Mahathir has already called for Asean to “Pivot to China” to stop the US from continuing its imperialist provocations in the region.
Philippine mainstream and social media must step up to the plate and educate our Filipino people about the truth about the coming war and its links to the 9/11 Terror Attack. We need to take inspiration from China, the latest powerful nation to join the push for Truth of 9/11. We thank China for taking this official position as this shall help the world to become free from the lies and myths of the U.S. Anti-Terror War and expose the U.S. and its capitalist oligarchy as the real terrorists.
