Conspiraloon™ Conspiracy Theorist Characteristics:Arrogance, relentlessness, inability to answer questions, fondness for certain stock phrases, inability to employ or understand Occam's Razor, inability to tell good evidence from bad, inability to withdraw, leaping to conclusions, using previous conspiracies as evidence to support their claims, and, it's always a conspiracy.
Maybe, but not here, because ten-foot, alien, shape-shifting, blood-drinking, lizard types are everywhere and running the world. No, really, they are! THEY ARE!

After being filmed saying 'wow' on hearing of Gaddafi's death, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joked with a TV news reporter
Liberation said a letter from the NTC dated April 3 informed the emir, another major backer of the revolt, of a deal "to assign 35 percent of crude oil to France in exchange for its total and permanent support of our Council."

|Master Mason, the Cold-Blooded Al Qaida Killer known as Anders Behring Breivik|
Prominent security experts community member, Will McCants recants,
yet the jihadi obsessed spook propogandist offers up somthing even scarier:
It has been known for some time that al-Qaida core and other related "franchises" - including in the most active in Yemen – have been attempting to develop operations. Which leads to a second question: why Norway?...
The answer to that is three fold. In then first instance, with the increased levels of security and surveillance in the UK and the US as well as other European capitals, Norway might have been seen as a softer target despite the recent breaking up of an al-Qaida cell in Norway.
A more detailed explanation of the problems that Norway has had with Al Qaeda were supplied a year ago by the Atlantic magazine in an article by Thomas Hegghammer, a senior fellow at the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment in Oslo, and Dominic Tierney.
That piece followed the arrest of three men in Norway and Germany for allegedly plotting a terrorist attack involving peroxide explosives. All of those arrested were were Muslim immigrants to Norway.
The first explanation," wrote Hegghammer and Tierney, "is Afghanistan. Norway has been part of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan from its foundation in late 2001.... In late 2007, for example, Ayman al-Zawahiri, al-Qaida's
second-in-command, said that the group had previously threatened Norway because it "participated in the war against the Muslims...
A second contributory factor for why Norway may have been eyed in the past for potential jihadi terrorist attack is the fact that in 2006, a Norwegian newspaper reprinted a series of Danish cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad which prompted threats against the country. A third potential explanation is the recent decision last week by a Norwegian prosecutor filed terror charges against an Iraqi-born cleric for threatening Norwegian politicians with death if he's deported from the Nordic country. The indictment centered on statements that Mullah Krekar - the founder of the Kurdish Islamist group Ansar al-Islam - made to various media, including American network NBC.
come 23rd July:
The most tempting and immediate conclusion was that it would be a jihadist group, as the style of the Oslo attack bore strong similarities to other earlier attacks in Europe and elsewhere.
But Norwegian police said that the individual believed responsible for the shooting in Utøya, a 32-year-old Norwegian man, was also spotted in Olso before the bombing there.
Both written by the same cunt
December 2008 marked a significant point in the history of the Guardian when the paper moved to a brand new building in King's Cross after 32 years in its Farringdon headquarters.
or his freelance colleague, Jamie Bartlett*:
"In a way, it is human nature to want to construct a narrative to resolve anxieties, to be drawn to mystery or the perception of it."
Well done, members of the 24 hour information community!
...conspiracy theories are kneejerk, lazy cynicism. We need to limit their corrosive and destructive impact. The government lacks the credibility to do so. It falls on the rest of us to act.
While "external" climatic variables play a role in triggering off a famine and heightening the social impact of drought, famines in the age of globalization are man-made.Or this:
They are not the consequence of a scarcity of food but of a structure of global oversupply which undermines food security and destroys national food agriculture.
Tightly regulated and controlled by international agri-business, this oversupply is ultimately conducive to the stagnation of both production and consumption of essential food staples and the impoverishment of farmers throughout the world.
Moreover, in the era of globalization, the IMF-World Bank structural adjustment program bears a direct relationship to the process of famine formation because it systematically undermines all categories of economic activity, whether urban or rural, which do not directly serve the interests of the global market system.
The Ogaden is populated by ethnic Somalis who have been fighting their own guerilla war against the Ethiopian dictatorship, whom they charge with using food as a weapon of war.
Of the 10 million people at risk of starvation, a huge portion live – or are now dying – in the Ogaden. As the dependable Thomas C. Mountain reports from nearby Eritrea, the Ethiopian government has blocked the International Red Cross and other aid agencies from carrying out relief work in the region.
The Obama administration, which now gives the Ethiopian dictatorship more money than any regime in Africa, could force the doors to the Ogaden open with one phone call.
But it won't, because Ethiopia and the U.S. are on the same mission, and there is nothing humanitarian about it.
...for in his boozy pensées, he speaks with great truth.
Whatever romance it might hold for the punters, it's all just a racket.
But as long as they keep on coughing up for it, where's the harm?

The latest damp squib to rock the conspirasphere brought this to mind:
Remember kids, don't trust the system!
However, my research on the internet also brought forth this forgotten gem by The Original Concept:
Which forced me to search for this companion piece:
And, fuck it, how could I leave out this:
which, in turn demands the freeform chef d'ouevre:
and, of course:
And appropriately enough for the original subject:
To think, this trip down memory lane started with that megaphone bothering, toff, cunt.
Hard to believe.
Truly, out of the shit came forth sweetness.
Good thoughts are where you find them, brothers and sisters.
As we firmly approve of recycling, we are delighted to see the Daily Mail and America's Homeland Security Department working hand in hand to recycle their own trash.
Barely 16 months after releasing this shocking and chilling story they have bravely repeated themselves by releasing this equally chilling and shocking story.
The Security Community has made great strides in this time, back in january 2010 they explained:
Experts said bombers would be surgically cut open, the explosive PETN (Pentaerythritol Tetranitrate) would then be placed in a plastic sachet inside his or her body before the wound was stitched up like a normal operation incision and treated to heal.
A shaped charge of 8oz of PETN can penetrate five inches of armour and would easily blow a large hole in an airliner.
The explosives would be detonated by the bomber using a hypodermic syringe to inject TATP (Triacetone Triperoxide) through their skin into the explosives sachet – a method which has created a serious fear that the body-bombers could pretend to be diabetics injecting themselves in order to prevent anyone stopping their suicide missions.While now they say:
While not being a explosives expert, this does seem like a total and utter pile of shit to me.

A Reuters investigation found that a two-story house in Wyoming is home to more than 2,000 corporations, some of which have played a key role in several questionable international financial schemes.Remember kids, nobody conspired to make this occur. Shit really does happen of its own accord.

Crop Circle Coloring Book
24 spectacular designs for enjoyment and meditation
Crop circles exhibit incredible sacred design and geometrical precision, as you will discover in this coloring book. There have been thousands of reported crop circles in 28 countries worldwide. Although crop circles have been recorded for hundreds of years, there has been a tremendous increase in the phenomenon since the early 1990s, especially in southern England.
Each crop circle diagram in this book is labeled with the date of its initial discovery, location, and type of crop in which it was manifested. This is more than a coloring book. Its an exploration and meditation on crop circle geometry. My hope is that the geometry may inspire you and act as an entry point to your own investigations.
Well that's all that history stuff sorted.
ERROL MORRIS: There are those that believe that [the Gulf of Tonkin incident was] part of a conspiracy to escalate the Vietnam War. Here’s a question: are they right? And, in an even more general sense, is history primarily a history of conspiracy? Or is it just a series of blunders, one after the other? Confusions, self-deceptions, idiocies of one kind or another?
ADAM CURTIS: It’s the latter. Where people do set out to have conspiracies, they don’t ever end up like they’re supposed to. History is a series of unintended consequences resulting from confused actions, some of which are committed by people who may think they’re taking part in a conspiracy, but it never works out the way they intended.

|Lord Simon Jenkins of WarWar|
Why do we still go to war? We seem unable to stop. We find any excuse for this post-imperial fidget and yet we keep getting trapped. Germans do not do it, or Spanish or Swedes. Britain's borders and British people have not been under serious threat for a generation. Yet time and again our leaders crave battle. Why?
It is not democracy that keeps western nations at war, but armies and the interests now massed behind them. The greatest speech about modern defence was made in 1961 by the US president Eisenhower. He was no leftwinger, but a former general and conservative Republican. Looking back over his time in office, his farewell message to America was a simple warning against the "disastrous rise of misplaced power" of a military-industrial complex with "unwarranted influence on government". A burgeoning defence establishment, backed by large corporate interests, would one day employ so many people as to corrupt the political system. (His original draft even referred to a "military-industrial-congressional complex".) This lobby, said Eisenhower, could become so huge as to "endanger our liberties and democratic processes"
The cold war strategist, George Kennan, wrote prophetically: "Were the Soviet Union to sink tomorrow under the waters of the ocean, the American military-industrial complex would have to remain, substantially unchanged, until ."
Al-Qaida gave no details about the selection process for bin Laden's successor, but said that it was the best tribute to the memory of its "martyrs".
