When you look back at 9-11, a couple of the biggest results were:
- ultra nationalism
- fear of the "other" (especially Muslims)
- great empathy for those who suffered within the US, thereby solidifying a nation
- a considerably stronger security apparatus designed to "protect" the people and domestic interests.
These effects spread far and wide across the globe. Although the suffering was largely felt in the US and global empathy largely directed to the American public, countries around the world went through pretty much the same responses as the US.
Therefore, we now have countries around the world with populations afraid of the "other", especially Muslims, developing ultra nationalist attitudes, willing to give away their rights in exchange for greater security. This is the perfect breeding ground for homegrown extremists. It shouldn't be surprising to see such terrorism in the vain of vigil antiism, although it is shocking.
I have to say, it's a rather impressive execution of a plan to forge a global army of Xtians, focused on a singular enemy - Islam and complacency in those not interested in joining the war.
This is the second stage of a similar plan to align as many Muslim extremists to direct their hate toward the decadent, largely Xtian Western world.
When you look at it that way, it becomes apparent the larger plan might be to merely keep humans engage in endless war and suffering while keeping the warring parties oblivious to the plan.
Of course, these plans are merely parts of even larger plans, where the plotting psychopaths are also oblivious to the manipulations they themselves are experiencing.
It makes me wonder if psychopaths could be shown how they are being manipulated and used, if their indignation could be directed further up the food chain, so to speak.
