Santorum Suggest New Terror Attacks Will Change View Of War

Former Senator predicts "unfortunate events" within a year that will alter perceptions
By Paul Joseph Watson

In an alarming display of fearmongering, former Republican Senator Rick Santorum has suggested that a series of "unfortunate events," namely terrorist attacks, will occur within the next year and change American citizen's perception of the war.

Appearing on the Hugh Hewitt radio show, Santorum also hyped the necessity of "confronting Iran in the Middle East," and predicted that Giuliani, Romney and Fred Thompson would be the three surviving Republican candidates who would go head to head in the race for the nomination.

Santorum went on to clearly imply that terror attacks will occur inside America which will alter the body politic and lead to a reversal of the anti-war sentiment now dominating the country.

"Between now and November, a lot of things are going to happen, and I believe that by this time next year, the American publicís going to have a very different view of this war, and it will be because, I think, of some unfortunate events, that like weíre seeing unfold in the UK. But I think the American publicís going to have a very different view," said the former senator from Pennsylvania.

Is Santorum expressing foreknowledge of some coming atrocity or is he merely using a tactic familiar to the leadership of his party - exploiting the fear of terror for the purposes of political rhetoric?

Last month, the new chairman of the Arkansas Republican Party Dennis Milligan said that there needed to be more attacks on American soil for President Bush to regain popular approval.

"At the end of the day, I believe fully the president is doing the right thing, and I think all we need is some attacks on American soil like we had on [Sept. 11, 2001]," Milligan told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, "And the naysayers will come around very quickly to appreciate not only the commitment for President Bush, but the sacrifice that has been made by men and women to protect this country," he concluded.

Yearning for new mass casualty terror attacks for political gain is a GOP strategy - Milligan is merely parroting what was written in a leaked confidential memo that was circulated among senior Republican leaders in late 2005.

"A confidential memo circulating among senior Republican leaders suggests that a new attack by terrorists on U.S. soil could reverse the sagging fortunes of President George W. Bush as well as the GOP and "restore his image as a leader of the American people," reported Capitol Hill Blue on November 12, 2005.

19276 Let the warmongers be warned, America is watching this time. Should another 911 happen, those truely responsible for causing, or allowing another attack to occure, will answer for their crimes. We Americans have a right and an obligation to protect our country from all enemies inside and out, this includes our government.
Stop the insanity, Vote Ron Paul in 2008, and rediscover what made America great.

67135 The thing is that there ARE - really, truly are - people in the world who view nearly all others as: less-than-nothing, cannon fodder, beasts of burden - take your pick. Shocking and stupid as it is, such people DO exist.

SADly, even if something catastrophic does happen, the very same people "in charge" are so far behind the curtain that they're going to be safe. It totally sounds like some Uber Conspiracy Theory, but too much has happened for so long that it becomes no longer amazing coincidence, but proof in fact.

70107 People wonder why there have been no terrorist attacks. It's obviously because Al Qaeda wants us to stay in Iraq, where they get to blow up our soldiers and waste billions of our dollars every month. If they attacked here, the population would demand that our troops come home to protect us, and that would be the end of Al Qaeda's target practice sessions.

171159 This is not an empty threat. The neocon crazies are going to repeat what they did on 9/11. They will hit America and blame al Qaeda.

Yes, I mean al Qaeda did not conduct 9/11. Because al Qaeda does not exist.

6412 As heard from the golden state of fiat US currency with tarnished minds and followers of Cindy Sheehan: Santorum should be drawn and quartered . . for he really is completely guilty . . . of stealing the plans designed and authored by Michael Moore. Michael Moore is now claiming he was only working on a complete and accurate 'documentary'; trying to entice fellow Americans who dropped out of grade school to get involved with the new direction ot the Untied States - one in which its citizens will be paid a stipend for receiving government issued food, clothing, shelter - for life. Turns out Mr Moore was in need of lunch money and sold the transcript to the local pawn shop operated by the ACLU who sold the newly scribed Moore piece to a Middle Eastern Doctor who is the primary care giver of Santorum. Mr Santorum has the nerve to claim he confiscated the Moore manuscript for secret GOP meetings charged with the responsibility of determining future plans of the radical Islamist underground infecting the US medical industry. And due to the credibility of our impeachable source, this story should be acted upon - immediately. Write your congressional reps, write your news editors, and please submit a written request to our President. And anyone having the audacity to question the validity of the contents as presented should go back to step #1: reference the headline reddit banner for this story.

They are just setting us up so the Democrats can save us from the evil Republicans. We'll all cheer the return of the constitution while we contine to delegate all responsibility to the authorities rather than making any decisions for ourselves. In essence, nothing will change except the flavor of the news they feed us.

4240 I don't think anyone in the government would cause a "false flag" staged terrorist event, but I think the GOP will exploit it to the max should one occur. However, unlike 9/11, I would suggest that an attack by Al Qaeda, as ordered by Osama Bin Laden, would only anger most people that our government has been busy in the middle of Iraq's civil war instead of going after Bin Laden in Pakistan.

On the other hand, should a terrorist attack on U.S. soil coincide with a draw down of U.S. troops, people will falsely associate the "fight 'em over there or fight 'em here" crap of the Chimp. We're going to be fighting them in both places, because of the failure of this administration to act intelligently.

How North Vietnam Won The War
Bui Tin Interviewed by Stephen Young

"What did the North Vietnamese leadership think of the American antiwar movement? What was the purpose of the Tet Offensive? How could the U.S. have been more successful in fighting the Vietnam War? Bui Tin, a former colonel in the North Vietnamese army, answers these questions in the following excerpts from an interview conducted by Stephen Young, a Minnesota attorney and human-rights activist [in The Wall Street Journal, 3 August 1995]. Bui Tin, who served on the general staff of North Vietnam's army, received the unconditional surrender of South Vietnam on April 30, 1975. He later became editor of the People's Daily, the official newspaper of Vietnam. He now lives in Paris, where he immigrated after becoming disillusioned with the fruits of Vietnamese communism. "

Question: How did Hanoi intend to defeat the Americans?

Answer: "By fighting a long war which would break their will to help South Vietnam. Ho Chi Minh said,
"We don't need to win military victories, we only need to hit them until they give up and get out."

Q: Was the American antiwar movement important to Hanoi's victory?...

nobody wins when the game is war. nobody.

...except maybe those few who stand to make huge profit from it....? But do they win, or do they just get rich? They make just as much money, regardless of which side gets to write their version of history.
