Democracy in America Is Pure Fantasy: Stephen Lendman

"I'll never live to see 9/11 justice," says Professor Stephen Lendman. The 9/11 attacks have changed the course of humanity, even so for sixteen years have not been minimally clarified but turned the world in a place full of fear and hate as the United States spreads its military bases all over the world.

"I'll never live to see 9/11 justice," says Professor Stephen Lendman. The 9/11 attacks have changed the course of humanity, even so for sixteen years have not been minimally clarified but turned the world in a place full of fear and hate as the United States spreads its military bases all over the world, having 737 and more than 2,500,000 U.S. personnel serving across the planet. 

Professor Stephen Lendman, one of the world's most respected analysts, speaks with Pravda Report on the consequences of those attacks, and President Trump's denial of his promises during the presidential campaign to investigate the day that has killed more than one million people all over the world, and up to now bring innumerable contradictions and evident lies.

Edu Montesanti: Professor Stephen Lendman, I'd like to thank you so very much for this interview. So what has been the consequences of the 9/11 attacks to the US and the world? 

Professor Stephen Lendman: I call 9/11 the mother of all false flags. It was staged to let Washington wage endless wars of aggression against one sovereign independent state after another.

All nations America doesn't control are vulnerable to wars or color revolutions for regime change. Dark forces in Washington want them all transformed into subservient puppet states, their resources looted, their people exploited.

The current crisis of a nuclear war between Washington and Pyongyang is, in a large part, a consequence of 9/11 as the then-US President George Bush included North Korea in the Axis of Evil", in his State of the Union address in 2002...

The North Korea situation has been festering since the 1940's, unconnected to 9/11 except for powers in Washington perhaps including the country among others it calls evil regimes.

America, NATO, Israel and their rogue allies are the only pure evil ones I know.

9/11 let America launch phony war on terror, waging war OF terror on humanity, supporting ISIS, al-Qaeda and other terrorists groups, using them as imperial foot soldiers.

I've written a great deal on North Korea. I deplore wars, nuclear and other powerful weapons, but recognize the DPRK's right to self-defense.

Throughout its history, it never attacked another country. It genuinely fears possible US aggression, why it's pursued powerful deterrents to save the nation and its leadership from destruction.

Campainger Donald Trump said that, once elected, he would investigate 9/11, what he has not been doing as president: Why do you think he has given up?

All politicians lie, Trump like all the rest. Further, he's been co-opted by dark forces in America. He's an impotent front man for their agenda. The same is true for congressional leadership and most congressional members, along with the courts.

Democracy in America is pure fantasy. None exists. Powerful monied interests run things. People have no say. Elections are farcical when held. Dirty business as usual wins every time.

We see people not willing to face the truth, especially Americans. 9/11 has become a taboo among people. Mike Berger has said me, "I have heard many times: 'If it is true [an inside job], I just don't want to know'." Every 9/11 truther I have interviewed or talked to, mention the mainstream media brainwashing, and psychological barriers as the roots of it. What can you say about it?

Democracy in America is pure fantasy. None exists. Powerful monied interests run things. People have no say. Elections are farcical when held. Dirty business as usual wins every time.

The major media in America are abominable, especially the New York Times, CIA-connected Washington Post, and farcical television news.

Do you still believe in justice for 9/11?

I'll never live to see 9/11 justice.

Several years ago, a prominent Indonesian businessman who now resides in Canada, insisted on meeting me in a back room of one of Jakarta's posh restaurants. An avid reader of mine, he 'had something urgent to tell me', after finding out that our paths were going to be crossing in this destroyed and hopelessly polluted Indonesian capital.
