Capture and torture people from all over the world in a prison such as Guantanamo Bay. Deny them rights: no charge; no trial; no representation; no right to a lawyer; no right to visit from friends, relatives or the Red Cross; and do so for an indefinite period. Select people whose religion is the same as those in the terrorist state you are looking to create (in this case Islam). This will make the enemies seem more closely knit, yet from varying countries, giving your country the excuse to invade country after country.
Destroy the stabilizing government of the neighbouring country. In 2006, Britain and America supported Somali warlords, such as Abdullah Yusuf, who invaded Somalia in order to overthrow the emerging government (the Union of Islamic Courts) and replace them with a facist government nobody wanted (the Transitional Federal Government, or TFG)
Murder people without charge or trial in both countries with new, super-weaponry, such as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (Drones). This will terrorize and radicalize the population of the country you are trying to turn into a terrorist state. Hopefully, your media will attempt to vindicate the drone attacks by either not reporting them or else uncritically quoting officials who claim that the drones target terrorists. Without journalist challenging these official statements, the public may assume that they are correct. (This is happening in more and more countries: Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Palestine, Yemen, Somalia, and possibly even Haiti).
Omit as much of the previous steps as you can from public knowledge via the media and education system of your own country. This will make any action from the country you are trying to turn into a terrorist state seem unprovoked, giving you the chance to invade as an act of self-defence. It will also allow you to carry on without your public overthrowing you (as mentioned in Step 1). Also, get your media to make meaningless statements about the country you are trying to turn into a terrorist state, sucha as "Osama Bin Laden's grandfather was born there" or, or "the failed Christmas underpants bomber (Umar Farouk Abdulmuttallab) was radicalized there by the cleric Anwar Al-Awlaqi" - even though Abdulmuttallab's father informed the FBI of his son's radicalization months before, which the FBI ignored - or, "Nidal Malik Hasan, the major who killed several of his colleagues at a US base, was radicalized there" - even though this was not terrorism because they were military targets.
Wait for a terrorist attack to occur, in the country itself, against a British national stationed there, such as an ambassador who has previously worked in another country you helped to destroy. When the British ambassador to Yemen, Tim Torlot, (who had worked for the British government in Iraq) was attacked in April 2010, the "left" and "right" media leapt at the chance to emphasize how dangerous Yemen is to Britain (for which we planned in Step 1)
Now sit back and wait for the country to boil over into extremeviolence, making sure you poke the bear with sticks, such as increased drone attacks and security raids by the puppet government being armed and trained by your own. After a few years, you will have yourself a nice terrorist state. Later, academics can refer to the country as a "failed state". While your domestic population assumes that you are either incompetent or out there to combat terrorism, you can secure energy routes or raw resources.
Today's post is extracted from the Yemen Post, an article written by Tim Cole, a very interesting article indeed.
How US-UK Create 'Terrorist' States: Yemen as a Case Study
How to create your very own terrorist state:
Using Yemen as a case study, Tim Coles argues that these steps precisely match US and British policies in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran as well as Yemen to grow "very poisonous seeds", some which have ripened while others are ripening.
So, you want to create your own terrorist state, do you? Follow these simple instructions and you will be able to grow "very poisonous seeds. These seeds are growing now. Some have ripened while others are ripening." Here is how to create your own terrorist state, using Yemen as an example.
Make sure you have a media and an education system sophisticated enough to omit what your country does to others, but emphasize what other countries do to you.
This will enable your domestic population to hate the people of the other country, allowing you to pursue your agenda without the risk of being overthrown by your own population.
Select a country that has suffered under your colonial rule in the past. Aden, now Yemen, was occupied by the British in 1839. In 1947, the Amir of Dhala's son, Haidan, led an uprising which was crushed with overwhelming firepower from Britain's Royal Air Force. In a study for the RAND Corporation, Briuce Hoffman explained:
Make sure that your selected country has a neighbour across the sea, or on its border, which has also suffered under your colonial rule. You will need to do this for Step 7 later on. In 1925, the colonial administrator, Douglas Jardine, no to be confused with the cricketeer, explained the geographic importance of Aden and British Somaliland, now Somalia:
Now that you have chosen a country, in close proximity to its exploited neighbour, you'll want to ensure that the suffering inflicted upon it had contined throughout the course of, say, one hundred years.
Now that you have fostered enough resentment and ruined a country's chance of socio-economic recovery, you might want to try betraying even the mercenary elements of that country attempting to side with you. In 1979, Amreica and Britain began funding, arming and training the Afghanistan mujahideen in order "to draw the Russians into the Afghan trap", to quote US President Jimmy Carter's national security advisor, Zbigniew Brzezinski. This worked. Russia and the mujahideen ruined Afghanistan - and out of the ashes rose the Taliban, whom Britain and America supported almost up to 9/11. Britain's leading independent terror specialist, Jason Burke, documented how many of the more fascistic elements of the mujahideen were Yemenis who "had distinguished themselves at the battle of Jalalabad in 1989.
Hi there!! It sure has been a long time since I posted anything. I hate leaving this blog for so long but I just don't know what to write about . . . I'll just write an update of since I last blogged.
As of now, the holidays have started, until the Muharram, the first month in the Islamic Calendar. However, I won't be continuing Iman University next Muharram as I do not have the leisure of doing 4 years in Iman University. Instead, I will be finishing 2 years of study in 1 year, Insha Allah. I have gone to meet with the Principal of Iman University to get a lists of Sheikh to teach me the subjects that is currently teached at Iman University. After I get the list, I will be calling them and arranging on matters such as; payment, time, and place. And then, the studies shall begin! I want the classes to start as soon as possible as there are a lot to cover but classes might start only after Syawal as the Ramadhan, the fasting month is just a few days away and they usually go back to their village during this period.
JOB: Our latest maid was fired a few days ago due to some circumstances and we were supposed to have a new maid but it seems that she backed out. So, my mum has decided to hire my sisters and I, salary will be split into 5. Maybe it will be like this for a month or two since 2 of my sisters will start school in September/October.
TEETH: Since a few weeks ago I have been feeling intense pain especially when I eat using the right side of my mouth, that now I am chewing food using the left side only and chewing slowly. A week later I had to bring my sisters to dentist for polishing and had my teeth checked out as well. It turnes out that my wisdom tooth is coming out and the pain is normal, said the doctor. The doctor also said, I should take good care to avoid inflammation etc.
