The bottom line answer is that the "war on terror" is about creating real terrorists. The US government desperately needs real terrorists in order to justify its expansion of its wars against Muslim countries and to keep the American people sufficiently fearful that they continue to accept the police state that provides "security from terrorists," but not from the government that has discarded civil liberties.

The US government creates terrorists by invading Muslim countries, wrecking infrastructure and killing vast numbers of civilians. The US also creates terrorists by installing puppet governments to rule over Muslims and by using the puppet governments to murder and persecute citizens as is occurring on a vast scale in Pakistan today.

Neoconservatives used 9/11 to launch their plan for US world hegemony. Their plan fit with the interests of America's ruling oligarchies. Wars are good for the profits of the military/security complex, about which President Eisenhower warned us in vain a half century ago. American hegemony is good for the oil industry's control over resources and resource flows. The transformation of the Middle East into a vast American puppet state serves well the Israel Lobby's Zionist aspirations for Israeli territorial expansion.

Anybody noticed how successful this hegemony is as of late as the Us economy contracts and China and India are accelerating beyond belief. The problem with Conspiracies is that they don't pan out too well when involving Millions.

Now Protecting the Oil was a major factor even in wrongful decision making , but those seeing their own Nation in ultra critical terms are mostly going to do so regardless of opponant.

Explain how this is a conspiracy. Its quite easy for even the most retarded neocon to understand that if you bomb a mans house and kill his family that he will eventually come and do the same thing to you. China and India's rising has alot to do with them doing away with alot of their socialist economic planning and NOT getting themselves in mindless wars.
