American Samizdat

There is reason to believe that the Oxford Research Group report by Paul Rogers will likely be ignored.

Six years after the Sept. 11 attacks in the United States, the "war on terror" is failing and instead fuelling an increase in support for extremist Islamist movements, a British think-tank said on Monday.

A report by the Oxford Research Group (ORG) said a "fundamental re-think is required" if the global terrorist network is to be rendered ineffective.

"If the al Qaeda movement is to be countered, then the roots of its support must be understood and systematically undercut," said Paul Rogers, the report's author and professor of global peace studies at Bradford University in northern England.

"Failure to make the necessary changes could result in the war on terror lasting decades, " the report added.

B, over at MOA asks, Who would benefit if Rogers' plans are implemented? Who would lose?

Decades of high profits for 'defense' and oil companies, better control of the public and a 'clash of civilizations' rational for expending the 'western' empire - what's not to like continuing this racket?

I know one thing, this method of 'systemic neglect' benefits the crisis economy just as Klein says. Just as it's not propaganda anymore, but propagenda, It's not merely qui bono, but "quo vadis" i.e, not just who benefits, but where does all this lead, and better why? Not to mention the Chicago boys proactive philosophy of making things happen.
