Kevin Barrett — Press TV Nov 4, 2013
The Snowden-triggered NSA spy scandals have thrown a monkey wrench into US-NATO plans for the world empire. Apparently, the world’s seven billion people do not want their every email stolen and stored, every phone call wiretapped and recorded, every pore on every face under the permanent scrutiny of spy satellites … and every world leader blackmailed and controlled.
This Monday and Tuesday, November 4th and 5th, rallies will be held around the world unmasking the global surveillance state.
On Monday, November 4th, all across Iran, people will be rallying to commemorate the 1979 seizure of the US Embassy, otherwise known as “the Den of Espionage.”
And then on Tuesday, November 5th, the “Million Mask March” will bring together supporters of Anonymous, Wikileaks, Occupy, Oath Keepers, whistleblowers, and hacktivists in more than 430 locations around the world.
The Iranians – who have been rallying against the “Den of Espionage” since 1979 – are ahead of their time. Today, 34 years after the US embassy seizure, the whole world is following in their footsteps and protesting against American spying.
Western corporate media, whose mission is keeping people ignorant and confused, are peddling lies and half-truths about these events. Big media tells us the students who seized the US embassy in Iran were scary-looking fanatics, as depicted in the film Argo. And big media will also portray the Million Mask March as a frightening, confusing phenomenon.
But what are these protests REALLY all about?
The Iranian embassy seizure was a response to a long series of crimes committed against Iran by the American National Security State. The CIA and its corporate masters had seized control of Iran in their 1953 coup d’état against democratically-elected Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadegh, installing a brutal puppet dictator – the Shah – as their front man.
During the reign of the CIA-backed Shah, many thousands of Iranians were tortured in CIA-built torture chambers, using CIA-supplied torture equipment, by CIA-trained torturers. If the makers of Argo had shown this, audiences would have cheered for the Iranian students, not the US diplomats. Those “diplomats,” after all, were directly or indirectly complicit in the torture.
This year, exactly fifty years after the event, the CIA finally admitted that it was behind the 1953 coup. According to the internal CIA history of the coup, released to the National Security Archive and published August 19th 2013: “The military coup that overthrew Mosadeq and his National Front cabinet was carried out under CIA direction as an act of US foreign policy, conceived and approved at the highest levels of government.”
Europeans, unlike Iranians, did not have to wait fifty years to see official US documents proving that an American “den of spies” is conspiring against their nations’ sovereignty. They can thank Edward Snowden for that.
The official US response is that “everybody spies on everybody, so it doesn’t really matter.” Nothing could be further from the truth.
No other country, with the exception of the Israeli regime, has the kind of surveillance capability the US has. And the only reason Israel has it is that the Zionists own the US and can force the NSA to feed them its raw data.
The New World Order empire, run by the global financial elite and its US-British-Israeli military and intelligence communities, is developing the capability to spy on everyone on earth. They are using this capability to build a world government based on “total information awareness.” Once they are able to instantly intercept anyone’s communication, they will be able to blackmail everyone of consequence and prevent anyone from moving against them in any way. Once this surveillance-based global dictatorship is established, they will tell us: “Resistance is futile.” And they will be right.
The Million Mask March aims to stop the rise of the global surveillance state.
Why the masks?
By wearing a mask, marchers will be symbolically insisting on their right to privacy and anonymity. The spy satellites watching the marches, and feeding their satellite photos into computers running facial recognition-based tracking systems, will have difficulty identifying and tracking masked marchers.
But the marchers will not be wearing just any masks. The mask of choice is the Guy Fawkes mask popularized by the film V for Vendetta.
By referencing V for Vendetta and holding the Million Mask March on November 5th – Guy Fawkes Day – the marchers are sending a message: “We know that 9/11 was an inside job designed to create an Orwellian total-surveillance dictatorship.”
The film V for Vendetta is a thinly-disguised 9/11 truth allegory. It depicts a society transformed into an Orwellian dictatorship by a spectacular act of false-flag terror. The hero – the guy in the mask – leads a revolution against the false-flag terrorists and their dictatorship.
In like fashion, the Million Mask Marchers will be revolting against the false-flag terrorists who orchestrated 9/11, 7/7, Madrid, Bali, Mumbai, Boston and other deceptions in hopes of establishing an Orwellian global dictatorship.
The Fifth of November, Guy Fawkes Day, is an auspicious date for such a protest. Guy Fawkes Day commemorates the first spectacular act of state-sponsored false-flag terror in modern history: The Gunpowder Plot of 1605.
The Gunpowder Plot was orchestrated by Robert Cecil’s war party. It was designed to drag England into a century of wars against the Catholic nations of Spain and Portugal.
The Gunpowder conspirators found a “radical Catholic” patsy, Guy Fawkes. They claimed Fawkes was about to blow up the Parliament with a few barrels of soggy, low-grade gunpowder. They whipped up anti-Catholic hysteria and launched a century of war against Catholic nations. Those wars led to England’s rise as the world’s leading superpower.
In 2001, the PNAC neoconservatives did almost exactly the same thing. They orchestrated a spectacular attack and blamed it on a “radical Muslim” patsy, Osama Bin Laden. They whipped up anti-Muslim hysteria. And they launched what they hoped would be a century of war against Muslim nations, in order to make the US and its master, Israel, the world’s sole superpowers.
But the PNAC false-flag plotters didn’t count on the rise of the Internet. By 2004, anyone with an Internet connection could watch Netanyahu’s close friend, World Trade Center insurance fraudster Larry Silverstein, confessing to the obvious controlled demolition of Building 7.
Every American who sees the videos of Building 7 coming down will agree with the masked hero of V for Vendetta: “There is something terribly wrong with this country, isn’t there?”
We are living in a strange time. 9/11 and the 9/11 wars have been exposed as big lies. The alleged “terrorist threat” has turned out to be a hoax. It turns out that the real reason the NSA is spying on world leaders (and everyone else) is not “to protect us from terrorists” but to grab absolute power.
And as Lord Acton said, power tends to corrupt … and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
The New World Order global surveillance dictatorship is absolutely unacceptable.
I look forward to seeing you at the Million Mask March on Tuesday, November 5th.
