London bombings: the unasked and unanswered questions


An article by Fazal Rahman, Ph.D. - written August 8, 2005

Muslim resistance to US-UK imperialism gains nothing from the truly terrorist acts, like those of the London bombings. US imperialism is the main beneficiary of such acts. It is highly improbable that the leaders of Muslim resistance do not understand this or that they would carry out such actions for the benefit of their mortal enemy. Who actually carried out the London bombings?

London Bombings: Unasked and Unanswered Questions

British authorities have laid the blame for the recent London bombings on some dead Muslim “suicide bombers”, who died, along with numerous other victims. Hundreds of people were also injured. Overwhelming majority of the dead and injured, as well as other passengers, on the trains and the bus, were not Muslims and were White British and other Westerners. And yet, the British authorities singled out a few Muslim passengers, who died in the bombings, as suspects, claiming that they were doing so on the basis of “forensic evidence”.

Nothing is easier than to blame such a crime on someone, who is dead and cannot defend himself, especially in the current hysteria of “War on Terrorism” in the West. There can be no conclusive and definitive “forensic evidence” in crimes of this nature. Whatever forensic evidence was found or concocted could have also been equally associated with numerous other victims as well as non-injured passengers.

Why would anyone blow himself/herself up during an attack like the London bombings, when it can be done rather easily by leaving the explosives on the trains and the bus, and disembarking without endangering oneself? The so-called “suicide bombers” in Palestine, Israel, and Iraq carry out such acts because they have very few, if any, other options in those situations. If they could carry out such actions without endangering or killing themselves, they would certainly choose that option.

The situation was totally different in London. The attackers had many options available to them. From the perspectives of the perpetrators, “suicide bombing” would be the most irrational, unnecessarily self-destructive, unlikely, and worst option in that situation, the ultimate psychopathic and self-destructive masochism. The best, most rational, and most likely option would have been, and most probably was, to leave the explosives on the targets, disembark, and then wait for the news of the results from a very safe distance. Logically, that is the most plausible and likely scenario. Most people who plan and carry out such acts are not stupid. They make careful and logical decisions and choose, what, they think, is the most practical and best option, from a variety of options, available to them in the particular situations.

Why was the above scenario not considered or considered seriously? Was it considered at all? If so, why has there been no public information or discussion of it?

The West has become totally decadent, unethical, and demonic, in subservience to the US imperialism. Almost every word the Western leaders, and especially those of the US, utter, in connection with the “war” on Iraq or “War on Terrorism”, is a most criminal, diabolical, and mass destructive lie. They are calling the invasion as “liberation”, occupation and colonialism as “democracy”, plunder and robbery as “generosity” and “reconstruction”, resistance to invasion, occupation, colonialism, plunder, and robbery as “insurgency”, and the March of Imperialism and Fascism as the “March of Freedom and Democracy” - and getting away with it! The victims of this most powerful and monstrous imperialist aggression are trying to resist it, the best they can, in face of incredible and seemingly impossible odds. However, Muslim resistance has nothing to gain, and a lot to lose, by bombings in London, Madrid, or elsewhere in Europe. Muslim resistance knows it and so do the imperialists.

Imperialists are the ones who reap enormous gains and benefits from such incidents, which are especially valuable at the current stage of developments, in which, the public support for the “War” on Iraq and “War on Terrorism” is rapidly declining, even in the US.

Is the Muslim resistance so ignorant, irrational, stupid, and masochistic that it would plan and implement such acts for the benefit of its mortal enemy, the US and British imperialism? Highly unlikely, almost impossible. If anyone is irrational, ignorant, and disinformed, it is the hundreds of millions of Westerners, who seem to be unable to see through the self-evident and mentally retarded lies of their leaders, in connection with the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan. Every Muslim child sees right through them and knows that these invasions are imperialist, centered around the robbery and plunder of the fabulous petroleum, natural gas, and other resources in these areas. There is no way that the leaders of Muslim resistance do not understand or know the effects of such actions and incidents. To portray them otherwise is pure racist and chauvinistic delusionism. And yet, such tactics are standard throughout the Western establishments, especially the official ones, under the influence of which, very large parts of their populations remain in perpetual state of false consciousness, in international and political affairs, bordering on delusions. The fact that one is hardly seeing any questioning of the official British version of the nature of London bombings, is a result of such mas produced “consciousness”, which defies all logic, facts, and evidence, and internalizes and reproduces the official garbage, thrown into it, with a mechanicalness comparable to the hard drive or compact disc of the computer.

In the case of London bombings, in the absence of any real evidence about the perpetrators, first and foremost, it is essential to ask who gains from such acts and who loses, as well as who has the resources, know-how, and operational abilities to carry them out. If those questions are asked, the compass needle moves to the imperialist aggressor and not its victims. Blaming the victims and exclusively focusing the investigation in that direction will not only implicate and victimize innocent people but will also further encourage the real perpetrators and planners to unleash more of such actions.

London bombings are likely to have been carried out by one or two well trained professionals, who carried the bomb-containing packages to the trains and the bus, left them there, and walked away, laughing all the way to the bank. The second London bombing, with minimal damages, may have been staged to further implicate the “Muslim extremists”, making, using, and planting primitive and inefficient explosive devices.

As described above, there are two major reasons for the implausibility and improbability of the involvement of Muslim resistance and “suicide bombers” in the London bombings.

In the London situation, there was no need for a suicide bombing. It could have been, and most probably was, carried out, relatively easily, without endangering oneself.

Muslim resistance has nothing to gain, and a lot to lose, by engaging in such acts in Europe, while the US imperialists are the main beneficiaries of such actions.

The above scenario, in spite of being hypothetical, is much more rational, plausible, and likely than what has been spun out so far by the British government. It is certainly worth looking into if the purpose of investigation is to uncover and find the real perpetrators of the London bombings, instead of finding the easiest way out by blaming some dead men as “suicide bombers”.

The real nature of the London bombings is likely to be incomparably more sinister than what is being manufactured by the British authorities. Whatever evidence is being produced could have easily been planted by the resourceful planners and perpetrators. It seems to have been the work of a highly professional and resourceful organization. US imperialists are becoming extremely unscrupulous and intoxicated in their international operations. Recently, the CIA has been caught red-handed in Italy in connection with the kidnapping and transport of a Muslim cleric to Egypt where he was subjected to prearranged jailing and torture. An Italian judge has issued arrest warrants for nineteen CIA agents, who are no longer in Italy, for that crime. There was also an uproar in the British academic circles when it was discovered that the CIA was recruiting British anthropologists. There is no lower limit for the infinitely low-lives, who can plan and implement such a grand mass murderous robbery as the one taking place in Iraq, in broad daylight, under pretexts that would put any mental retard to shame. Destruction of human lives not only means nothing to them, they feed and grow on it.
