Problem – Reaction – Solution & the Sydney Terrorist Incident Connection

By General Maddox
(Real News Australia) There’s one thing governments, government agencies or particular groups or members within adhere to. Never let a good crisis go to waste.

Recently Australian government intelligence agencies such as ASIO & ASIS have been pushing for greater powers when it comes to spying, intelligence gathering and yes, even torture. Attorney General George Brandis has been seeking approval via a Bill Amendment to protect those involved in covert ops from litigation.

In explaining the proposed changes to the law, Senator Brandis told parliament on July 16, “Covert operations may expose intelligence personnel or sources to legal liability in the course of their work. For this reason, some significant covert operations do not commence or are ceased. To address this issue, the Bill implements the recommendation to create a limited immunity for participants in authorised, covert operations…The limited immunity is subject to rigorous safeguards.”

The law is silent about an array of punitive measures, including inflicting permanent psychological damage, in the name of security interrogation. You don’t even need to have been charged with a crime. The National Security Legislation Amendment Bill is designed to “establish a framework for the conduct of covert intelligence operations”. I suspect that framework will now be revisited by the parliamentary joint committee on intelligence and security.

Our governments are always looking for more excuses to remove more of our freedoms and liberties. This smells like the perfect crisis they look for.

Why would 2 men choose that particular cafe in Martin Place, Sydney? If they wanted to make a statement why wouldn’t they just detonate an explosive device and claim responsibility? Why go to the trouble of taking a few hostages and hold a Jihadist flag at the window? From a terrorist perspective they’re not exactly going about this the right way to create the desired amount of fear that, by definition, an act of terrorism is supposed to create.

My guess is this will end without any shots fired or bombs going off (Which is ideal), the public will be made to feel outraged that this was allowed to happen courtesy of the main stream media, the government will then seize this opportunity to call for and increase its surveillance capabilities of the public. Problem – Reaction – Solution.

Please read this excellent piece by our affiliate to gain a better perspective of how it’s done.

In the following feature piece, Ethan Nash takes an in-depth look at all three stages of anti-terror legislation, and analyses how media and government authorities have manipulated public perception and capitalised on pre-conceived fears to pass Draconian-type laws, erode our personal freedoms in unprecedented fashion, and set the catalyst for an Orwellian society to subtlety expand within our very backyard.

    Those in power have to announce to the ethers their intentions before they go ahead and do it…. we give them our tacit consent by either not being aware of it or by burying our collective heads in the sand.
