145. Hunter S. Thompson article from Sept 12, 2001

This is the Jesse Ventura link I found the HST link at:
http://www.ora.tv/offthegrid/article/uncover-911-hunter-s-thompson

Here's the HST link;
http://proxy.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?id=1250751

"The towers are gone now, reduced to bloody rubble, along with all hopes for Peace in Our Time, in the United States or any other country. Make no mistake about it: We are At War now -- with somebody -- and we will stay At War with that mysterious Enemy for the rest of our lives."

"It will be a Religious War, a sort of Christian Jihad, fueled by religious hatred and led by merciless fanatics on both sides. It will be guerilla warfare on a global scale, with no front lines and no identifiable enemy."



Yes indeed, the self perpetuating Military Industrial Congressional Surveillance Complex Ike warned us about in 1960/61 is playing this ISIL fiddle and the entire world is dancing to it! ISIL is doing a great rope a dope job getting our best and brightest military volunteers to go over and get killed and maimed fighting them over there so we don't have to fight them over here. We will start another war to sacrifice our patriotic young volunteers to ISIL as per their wants.

Doesn't take much to play the American public like marionettes, does it?

Our state of perpetual war will not end in the lifetimes of anybody reading this.

We are truly "dumb all over, and maybe a little ugly on the side"



Hunter was remarkably insightful and perceptive, wasn't he? I need to re-read "Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail 1972" again soon. It's been decades and I devoured HST as a young person.
