Clinging to the Fantasy

Simply put, the War on Terror is a myth used to perpetrate a fraud. Like all colossal frauds, such as no-bid military contracts and bank bailouts, the myth of funding a never-ending war to stop terrorism is merely a cover story to conceal grand larceny. The fact that this myth entails perpetuating crimes against humanity as determined by all international bodies governing humanitarian law, might give Americans pause to think, but that assumes an ability to distinguish between rhetoric and reality—an ability that is not readily apparent. Clinging to the fantasy of American goodness, or even hope in the form of pernicious politicians, is not an encouraging sign.
