Out of all the conspiracy theories I've heard, none seem to hold their ground very well; but last night, I had an epiphany. This is whats REALLY happening.


After Bush finally feels that Saddam has pushed the US too far, he invades. Using up pretty much what is left of the US military, the homland is left much less defended than it has been in the past.

Rumsfeld threatens to fire any general who plans for after the war.

Insurgency begins. No plan = sticky mess for the US military to be tangled in.

Blackwater, a private firm specializing in mercenaries tests out it's decked out special ops guys in Iraq and several other key places.

Blackwater begins training in new men by the thousands. A small army is built.

At a strategic time Bush uses this force of thousands of special ops to take control of American infrastructure.

Think of nazi Germany and Hitlers SS. Hell, if you already believe Bush was behind 9/11 you have the comparison of the burning Reichstag.


So what do you guys think? Plausible or not? I certainly think not, but attack!

Not all that plausible, really. The Alaska National Guard could mop up Blackwater. (Setting aside the 9/11 issues).

What interests me more is the overall question of Mercenary Forces using the US as a safe harbor, and their possible longer term potential to wreak chaos in the future.

Blackwater and other Mercenary outfits aren't really a threat today, and won't be one for years, but soldiers with a loyalty only to their unit, their commanders, and their paychecks have destroyed more than one civilization.

Perhaps. But don't the National Guards answer to the president?

I hate to break it to you, but it is much better to run the show from behind the scenes (status quo) than take over.

i forgot. Because historically people who try to take over think of that and don't take the chance.

Well, they already HAVE taken over. People are not even noticing.

Get carried away and it is bad for business

Only the gays notice.

I don't believe this, again. I was just interested what the responses would be, but nobody's taken it seriously [Frown]

We should treat a conspiracy theory much like a scientific theory: see if what it predicts comes true.

I personally think that Bush will be out of the political scene a couple of years at most after the next presidential election. If he hasn't taken over by then, we'll call this conspiracy theory false, and vice versa.

Of course, at that point proponents of this theory will say, "But that's just what he wants you to think!" That's my favourite sign of a good conspiracy: even evidence against it is really evidence for it.

ngthagg.

This isn't a real conspiracy theory, I'm just interested in what the arguments against it would be. But nobody is trying so it sucks.

I suspect, Tommy, since I more or less agree with your theory -- on the principle that 'executive branch cabalas' have sought to maintain backup plans in the event of implosion since at least the Johnson administration -- that people are more interested in the Princess Di conspiracy theories.

One problem you are ignoring in the theory, however, is that every military generation requires a war to exercise its muscles, test its equipment in real spacetime, and give our pampered martinets a raison d'etre.
