Against Terrorism — But for What?

Via III Percent Patriots

Is Middle East Peace A Mirage

Following the Charlie Hebdo massacre, Prime Minister Manuel Valls said that France “is at war with terrorism, jihadism and radical Islamism.” This tells us what France is fighting against.

But what is France fighting for in this war on terror? For terrorism is simply a tactic, and arguably the most effective tactic of the national liberation movements of the 20th century.

Terrorism was used by the Irgun to drive the British out of Palestine and by the Mau Mau to run them out of Kenya. Terrorism, blowing up movie theaters and cafes, was the tactic the FLN used to drive the French out of Algeria.

The FALN tried to assassinate Harry Truman in 1950 at Blair House, shot up the House of Representatives in 1954, and, in 1975, blew up Fraunces Tavern in New York where Washington had bid his officers farewell. The FALN goal: Independence from a United States that had annexed Puerto Rico as the spoils of war in its victory over Spain.


  1. Agreed. All contrived. Enter the next boggyman. The agencies have now been merged
    into a super-fascist agency. Homeland Security is now the big business of our
    corporate state. The real terrorists are our single party corporate state who QUICKLY
    passed Patriot Act II, with more fascist powers. Eye rolling is permitted.

  2. Sheriff Mack states on Charleston Voice that The greatest threat we face today is not terrorists. It is our federal government.…
    One of the best and easiest solutions is to depend on local officials, especially the sheriff, to stand against federal intervention and federal criminality.
    The usual fear mongering, if you know what I mean. They are the terrorists.
