Yemen is the New Eastasia

Sometimes, The Daily Show and The Colbert Report have interesting observations. Yemen is the new #1 enemy, replacing Iraq on the "Axis of Evil".

The guy who tried to blow up an airplane over Christmas was from Nigeria. Allegedly, he received his bomb and training in Yemen.

There always must be an enemy. Iraq and Afghanistan no longer are suitable enemies. If they are aggressively hyped, then that would be an admission that years of US military intervention was a complete failure.

New enemies must be continually invented. That keeps the slaves scared and complacent. "Global Warming" is a vague poorly-defined problem. "Terrorism" is also vaguely defined. Any disgruntled person who acts violently is a terrorist.

Before that, there was the threat of the Soviet Union. Communism is another vague threat. If you were accused of being a Communist, that's a hard-to-defend accusation. There was the threat of nuclear war. That threat is no longer publicly hyped, although there still are lots of nuclear weapons. Now, "OMFG! We will all die due to global warming!" replaces "OMFG! We will all die due to nuclear war!"

New and powerful enemies must be continually invented. If it's always the same enemy, then the scam is too obvious.

State parasites love powerful poorly-defined enemies. That is an excuse for State parasites to grab more power.

State parasites tell the slaves "You need us, because of this powerful enemy. We know how to deal with them and you're helpless without us."

I think it is more sinister because they are forward planning for when all liberties are removed by the State and the people have nothing to fall back on. It is preparation for implosion all planned by the elites.
