It clearly seems that the lobbies at the international level are working to make sure that the opinion in the US becomes so much gripped with the fear of “Radical Islam” that Trump’s arguments of hate and the need to exterminate this hate through “destruction” of the very “roots” of Islamic radicalism start echoing in the heart of every American. This alone can explain the recent spurt of “terror” attacks in the world and the kind of coverage they receive in the world media.

This is what the Western style democracy has given. Electioneering has become a psychological warfare. Whenever and wherever the elections are to take place in near future, the parties and the lobbies supporting them are busy manufacturing opinion through overt or covert and real or fictious war games. They have understood it well that the science of electioneering is as much about creating fear in the minds of the people as it is about instilling hopes. Fear may in fact bring much greater swings in the pattern of voting than hope.
This game is played everywhere. In countries like India, Australia or Malaysia, the elections are predominantly a local phenomenon with domestic issues dominating the scene though international issues may play some part. Elections in England or France are European events. But when it comes to the US elections, they become a global event. And perhaps, they have never become as global in the past as they have become this time.
It clearly seems that the lobbies at the international level are working to make sure that the opinion in the US becomes so much gripped with the fear of “Radical Islam” that Trump’s arguments of hate and the need to exterminate this hate through “destruction” of the very “roots” of Islamic radicalism start echoing in the heart of every American. This alone can explain the recent spurt of “terror” attacks in the world and the kind of coverage they receive in the world media. If the Naxalites kill dozens in India, if the American planes kill dozens on daily basis in Syria, if American led interventions in Libya kill scores everyday — these never hit the headlines. But a “Muslim” killing or injuring some people followed by the claim from ISIS that “it carried out the attacks” will continue to dominate the media for days.
If there was any discussion anywhere in the early times of the rise of ISIS that it was the creation of West to topple the Syrian regime, it is being totally forgotten now. Nobody asks why it was not an object of hate till it was working in Syria and why it became so notorious as soon as it entered Iraq? Nobody asks how ISIS got so many recruits from Europe and so many “neoconverts”? Nobody asks how they got hold of such a heavy weaponry manufactured in Western countries? ISIS is now nothing but the ISLAMIC STATE of Iraq and Syria.
The failed coup attempt in Turkey has also unnerved the West. They want Turkey to go the Syrian, Libyan or Egyptian way. Nobody asks them why the Western governments are so sympathetic to the participants of the failed coup? Why are they demanding “restraint” from Erdogan when they did not show any restraint in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya and Egypt?
Believe me or not, Trump is heading for victory. The opinion has already started swinging in his favour. Few more attacks “Carried By ISIS” in the run-up to the elections, and the swing will become decisive. ISIS will oblige its masters. Wait for October, and there may be another ISIS attempt in America. That is where, it will work most. America needs wars for sustaining its political and economic hegemony. And for wars it needs Bushes and Trumps who can invade nations on their own presumptions of their possessing “weapons of mass destruction”. After all, America has to make use of its own stockpile of mass weapons. And again for the Western invasions of Muslim lands and deaths of millions of innocent Muslims, nether West or Westernism nor Christianity will be blamed. “Islam” and “Muslims” will remain under focus for their role in killing thousands.
Let somebody make the majority of Americans believe that Trumps and Bushes will not only destroy the non-American or anti-American world but will ultimately destroy America itself! Let somebody convince them that the real threat to theworld has been and will continue to be from Western radicalism.
