ANATOLI BARANOV: AMERICAN TRAGEDY. WHO NEEDED IT?

America is defenseless – this is the conclusion to come to according to the plan of those who organized a series of acts of terrorism in the United States – the American tragedy, like it is already called. The Pentagon, presidential residence were attacked successfully, a bomb blew up near the premises of the Department of State and all these buildings may be called as the holies of holies of the American national security system. The World Trade Center – the symbol of America’s financial and economic power. The death of thousands of people is also a symbol – the symbol of defenseless democracy which is not able to protect their own people.

The Bible has another example for such action of humiliation – David and Goliath fight. There is a very important question to answer – who is David?

In spite of specialists’ sceptic spirit who sincerely doubt that some non-state terrorist organization could plan and perform such an action with the use of its own forces only, there has already been an accusation made – the Moslems. The Russian TV-6 network is rather persistent stressing out the “Islamic” version. The same trend was noticed from former ambassador of Russia to Israel Alexander Bovin, from the editor-in-chief of the radio station Echo Moskvy. Afghanistan, Palestine, Iraq, North Korea are named as “certain addresses”.

The most comfortable version has been exposed like it happened with the explosions in Russia – in Moscow, in Volgodonsk, Buynaksk. But Russia has the Chechen people to blame, the USA have Osama bin Laden - half-crazy, half-mythical leader of terrorism in the whole world – the human incarnation of Satan. This is a very good character for comics and Hollywood action movies but it is absolutely useless to save America from humiliation.

Here is another aspect: President Bush who is courageously hiding in some secret military places called those acts of terrorism “cowardly”. The most powerful man in the world is rushing around his own country like a rabbit concealing the place where he stays. However the American television does not reproach him for that like President Putin was reproached in the days when the missile submarine Kursk sank. But that’s all right – Bush will come to his senses soon. Suicide terrorists are anything but cowards. And this is one of enigmas of the American tragedy. The terrorist organizations can basically nominate 1 or 2 kamikazes who are mentally unbalanced as a rule, ready for an impulse but completely not good for serious organized actions. The large structures, the state special services first and foremost do not have the groups of professionally trained suicides. The fact that many people took part in hijacking the aircrafts is a widely known one. The units of professional suicides is the main enigma of the American tragedy.

It was requisite to make a very detailed plan, very carefully in order to hijack almost a dozen of planes. There was no attempt made to stop hijackers, none of them was nabbed when crossing the USA frontiers or in airports’ control areas. There should be serious training carried out on some training plane in order to avoid any mistakes when hijacking the real planes with people aboard. According to the information which was received from CNN correspondent from one of the seized planes, the terrorists had only knives as a weapon which was another aspect of the training: Steven Seagal or Bruce Willis were not supposed to show up all of a sudden and save everyone. No one bothered at all. All those professionally trained composed, determined people were ready to die consciously. There is no protection or defense against such people, there just can not be any. There are a few examples in the world history when a state had suicide pro units at its disposal. Japan and Iraq may be. But Japan is not like it was during the times of its empire, the Iraqi kamikazes did not play a relevant role during the war in the gulf which testified to their doubtful level of readiness to die for Saddam’s life. So who is it? Where did those suicide units come from? There is no answer yet but there is a true fact – they exist.

The attention of the world society turns to the Islamic East where there used to be the Assassins sect, ready to put thousands of suicide warriors forward any minute. Nowadays this sect is called the Islamite sect, its rebirth is directly connected with the active work of the English intelligence in the Middle East, in the middle of the past century. The spiritual leader of the Islamites, Aga-Han the Fourth lives in Paris and supervises the work of his nationals on both sides of the Afghan-Tajik frontier.

The second source in the East for such human “raw material” is the Vakhabits. They have been under the guardianship of the English intelligence as well since the middle of the last century and then moved under the US control together with Saudi Arabia. The rest of the countries - Iraq, Palestine, Chechnya – they can not prepare and perform anything like that. There are single suicides in Palestine, Chechnya but there is an enormous difference between the explosive stuck to the stomach and the terror that happened yesterday.

The world press wrote a lot “about the hallmarks of KGB” after explosions in Moscow. The same questions were asked: who could do it and who gained profit from it. Although it should be mentioned the acts of terror in Moscow can not be compared to the American tragedy. Osama bin Laden’s or Palestinians’ gains in this respect are more than doubtful: the USA’s revenge will be horrible. Did those people schedule every aspect of the terrorist operation not taking account of the consequences that were surely to follow? It’s hard to believe.

The economic consequences of the American tragedy have already brought the evident profit to the Vakhabit oil manufacturers. Israel was given indulgence in terms of the world public opinion towards any actions against Palestine. The European countries, Great Britain first and foremost gained temporal advantage in the field of the world financial regulation, the euro currency strengthened vs. US dollar.

The forces which are fed up with the liberal and democratic thing distinguished themselves in America long ago. The footage of the catastrophe showed that “the powers-that-be” today is a crowd of fat people in uniform or without it, scared to death and any blow on them immediately becomes “intolerable damage”. Those people were indignant about Moscow’s non-democratic order when people are stopped in the streets and their documents and cars are examined. They did not understand how could they suspect a human being just because he or she has a slightly different color of the skin. They did not believe something like that could happen to them. This was over yesterday.

Many people were not glad about the world currency to be regulated with spontaneous, elemental disposition on the exchanges, the major of which turned out to be in the zone of danger yesterday. The euro currency which is controlled by the EU countries looks more stable currently. Obviously, the USA’s financial system has an adequate answer to that and we will see it soon. Let’s say the ruble started being regulated by the Central Bank, not by the Moscow Inter-Bank Currency Exchange in August of 1998 (when the financial crisis happened in Russia) and everybody noticed some time after that it was even better. America may extricate itself from the current crisis being less democratic, but more centralized, meeting the status of world empire on a much better level. The States do not need the help which was kindly offered by Putin. The Moslems will surely be punished. What for? The answer to this question will be evident for everyone under the conditions of the new world order.
