US war on terror orchestrated by Israel First neocons: Scholar


Press TV

America’s so-called war on terror, which some studies show has cost nearly $6 trillion and killed about half a million people, was orchestrated by Zionist neoconservatives in the US to destroy Muslim nations, a US scholar says.

“9/11 was a neoconservative coup d’état to make the US keep fighting perpetual wars, whose only real geo-strategic beneficiary is Israel.” said Kevin Barrett, an author, journalist and radio host with a PhD  in Islamic and Arabic Studies.

“It was orchestrated by Israel First neocons and to some extent hard-line hawks in the US military establishment,” Barrett told Press TV on Friday.

Recent studies have “underestimated the disastrous consequences of the US so-called war on terror,” he added.

PressTV-US has spent $6 trillion on wars since 9/11: Study

A study has revealed that the US has spent nearly $6 trillion on wars that directly contributed to the deaths of about half a million people since the 9/11 attacks.

A new study has revealed that the United States has spent nearly $6 trillion on its war on terror which it launched 17 years ago after the September 11, 2001 terror attacks.

The “Costs of War” study was conducted by Brown University’s Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs. It was published on Wednesday.

The institute also released a study last week that found about half a million people have been killed in the US wars against Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan since 2001.

The latest report takes stock of the US military spending and its Overseas Contingency Operations account, as well as “war-related spending by the Department of State, past and obligated spending for war veterans’ care, interest on the debt incurred to pay for the wars, and the prevention of and response to terrorism by the Department of Homeland Security.”

“The United States has appropriated and is obligated to spend an estimated $5.9 trillion (in current dollars) on the war on terror through Fiscal Year 2019, including direct war and war-related spending and obligations for future spending on post 9/11 war veterans,” the study said.

PressTV-‘US war on terror worst war crime in human history’

America’s so-called war on terror that began 17 years ago is one of the “worst war crimes” in human history, a US scholar says.


The United States, under former President George W. Bush, launched the war on terror following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

US officials assert that the attacks were carried out by 19 al-Qaeda terrorists but many experts have raised questions about the official account.

Many experts believe that rogue elements within the US government, such as former Vice President Dick Cheney, orchestrated the 9/11 attacks in order to accelerate the US war machine and advance the Zionist agenda.

  1. It takes a ton of money to have a newspaper or a TV network. So many complain about the Media . One man is not an army . United with a common cause using imagination the people could start there own TV network and newspaper to rival the Corporate Media . Instead of rolling over DO IT. The picture of that asshole with the combat gear on above should set the ball rolling

  2. ” Mr. Jeremy Rothe-Kushel was actually arrested for asking Dennis Ross about Israel’s connection to 9/11 during a Q&A at the Kansas City Public Library!”

    YET another attempt to bring attention to “Israel’s connection to 9/11 ” & we want MORE “attempts” .
    Today anyone with a brain can see that there is a RUSH to destroy Iran to “complete” the PNAC neocon plan for the “New American Century” that we all remember & of course General Wesley Clark told us about the Pentagon Plan to attack ” 7 countries in 5 years”.
    Well IMHOP the window of opportunity is closing for the neocons as the exposure of 9/11 as a False Flag “is at hand” & according to Susan Landauer even Donald Trump is “looking into it.”

    Ron Unz , the Editor-in-Chief of The Unz Review, ethnically Jewish & no moron initally LIKE MOST accepted the transparently false “Official” 9/11 story until he started to pay attention. Once he paid attention, he realized it was all B.S.…

    • See how easy it is to fool people? Unz and Russia Insider have clearly fooled you, both are Zionist fronts, disinfo outlets, VT identified both as such long ago. Remember Lenin: The best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves.

  3. The ‘canard’ that so many Americans were in on 9/11 that to expose and prosecute them all would have caused a Civil War is a load of Bolshevik bunkum. The ring leaders are still hiding in plain sight and ‘dancing’.

  4. 911 could NEVER have been executed in the way that it was without the full knowledge of every US Intelligence agency. Any trained individual with basic investigative skills must have known the whole operation was a false flag within hours of it happening. That was the time to speak up, yet all we heard was silence….. Now here we are decades after the event still going round & round in circles reviewing the same data and footage. It’s patently obvious that the level of co-ordination required to stage a 911 required not only vast intelligence agency input but also civil, corporate, media & military assistance. The USA was the perpetrator and the victim, all at the behest of Zionist influences for IsRaEl & Russia (both of whom are now thriving). You can mention dancing Jews and Saudi Pilots till you’re blue in the face, but both would have been 100% irrelevant without full US Government co-ordination across the series of events that day. And that was 2001! Imagine how dire the situation is almost 2 decades later………

    • RillyTC
      youre so very dumb that i cannot Believe

      Russia had NOTHING to do With 9/11 …… Which drugs are You on ? …….. the Stereotypical Russo-Phobia by the Dumb illiterate Americans full of indoctrined Commie Hate ………

    • Just to punctuate.

      Who’s currently enforcing the US anti-terror laws post 911? Yep…. US Civil, Federal & Military intelligence.

      “Israel first Necons” are the issue?…… really?…. it’s patently well beyond that

    • RillyTC is correct but why on earth does he/she say that Russia was involved –which is totally a HASBARA DISTRACTION for the uninformed sheeple.
