End The Terror War
June 2015, 1st Edition
An introductory guidebook on preserving the antiwar movement for Americans and others across the world.
End The Terror War: An introduction to a cause
Greetings, this is Matt from End The Terror War. In this set of documentation I would like to educate you on my goals as ETTW as a cause and what you can do to help.
First, I will explain what the Terror War is.
Second, I will provide thorough documentation on the costs of the Terror Industrial Complex and explain as thoroughly as possible what it is.
Third, I’d like to answer why YOU should feel compelled to join this antiwar cause of the modern world.
Lastly, I will provide additional information and instructional guidelines for how you can help ETTW.
The reason I decided to create this walk-through regarding the cause of ETTW, is primarily because it hasn’t been done before. Secondly, I’d like to reach out to people across the world to collectively act in rebuttal against the depopulation agenda we all face.
What is the Terror War?
President George W. Bush declared the “Global War on Terror” during his September 20, 2001 address to a Joint Session of Congress.
Osama bin Laden had declared “jihad” against American military forces occupying “the land of the two Holiest sites” (Saudi Arabia).
End The Terror War is a cause devoted to denouncing ALL forms of terrorism. On January 27, 1961 President Dwight Eisenhower identified the military-industrial complex: “In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together. Akin to, and largely responsible for the sweeping changes in our industrial-military posture, has been the technological revolution during recent decades. In this revolution, research has become central, it also becomes more formalized, complex, and costly. A steadily increasing share is conducted for, by, or at the direction of, the Federal government.“ With the lost American lives of 9/11, and countless others since the War on Terror began, I believe a new industrial complex has been born: The Terror Industrial Complex. Equally, it must be brought to an end through a collective effort of people across the planet, to defy State terrorism and non-state terrorist groups alike.
The axiomatic points to look out for in the Terror Industrial Complex are the following:
- Unconventional warfare;
- Proactive, Preemptive, Operations Group (P2OG);
- FBI entrapment;
- False flag events;
- International banking institutions financing drug proliferation and terrorism;
- Government’s scaring the general public into accepting questionable “security” measures that endanger their civil liberties and human rights;
- Excessive and vague “counter terrorism” measures, such as political, religious, and ethnic profiling;
- Expansion of police state activities (civil asset forfeiture, COINTELPRO, Black Bloc , infiltration and breaking up citizens’ groups, no-knock raids, nuisance abatement, profiteering for the prison industrial complex w/ victimless “crimes”, police union-BAR attorney privileges over average citizen in judicial and legislative matters);
- Federal or local government agents promising to covertly assist in formulating a terrorist plot in providing materials (paraphernalia and/or explosives) or services (recruiting others, encouraging EXTREMELY radical thoughts or actions to carry out the terror attack that are generally unacceptable in individual or group discussions);
- Local or federal government agents using nameless or fictitious persona’s to advance the above-mentioned terrorist plot tactics, they will be the victim’s “contact” until the relationship is broken off or the victim is detained until further notice;
- Totalitarian surveillance of life within and outside the confines of the internet;
- Rumsfeld’s “Information Operations Roadmap” plays a key role in federal and local government’s formulating “information warfare” responses to social media content, bloggers, alternative media, and journalists in general. This applies both WITHIN and OUTSIDE the United States.
What are the costs of the Terror Industrial Complex?
Aside from the trouble of attempting to quantify untold numbers of dead, or the amount of infrastructure globally impacted by the War on Terror. I think an appropriate measure of answering the question can be found in Stephen Graham’s CITIES UNDER SIEGE: THE NEW MILITARY URBANISM wherein Graham rightfully tackles the ideological mirrors of Western state terrorism that flies under the self-proclaimed banner of Christianity and their opposition of the Middle East who proclaim to embody the deity (Allah) and prophet (Mohammad) of Islam in equally repulsive purposes of terrorizing people across the world to meet their geopolitical objectives.
“In many ways, terrorism and counterterrorism are umbilically connected. So often in the end, tragically, they are self-perpetuating, sustained by their mirror-image imaginative geographies. This is especially so as both the War on Terror and radical Islamism tend to demonize the messy cosmopolitanism of cities, construing them as intrinsically amoral, sinful and unnatural places. It is no wonder that both barbarisms murderously target cities and their inhabitants. Or that both the neocon/Christian and the Islamist fundamentalism share what Zillah Eisenstein terms a ‘masculinist-militarist’ mentality, in which violence is the path to the creative destruction of cities, nations or civilizations. The Manichaean mirrors of the two polarized fundamentalists inevitably produce a duplication and reduplication of violence. What results is a convergence between state terror and non-state terror. The ‘ultimate catastrophe’ of the War on Terror, as Joseph Zulaika points out, ‘is that such a categorically ill-defined, perpetually deferred, simple-minded Good-versus-Evil war echoes and re-creates the very absolutist mentality and exceptionalist tactics of the insurgent terrorists.’ Zulaika further suggests that ‘by formally adopting the terrorists’ own game – one that by definition lacks rules of engagement, definite endings, clear alignments between enemies and friends, or formal arrangements of any sort, military, political, legal, or ethical – the inevitable danger lies in reproducing endlessly.’ The real danger of the War on Terror, then, is that it has closely paralleled Al Qaeda in invoking homogeneous, exclusionary notions of community as a way of legitimatizing massive violence against civilians. The strategies and discourses of both the Bush administration and Al Qaeda – characterized by charged, mutually reinforced dialectics – relied on hyper masculine notions as (asymmetric) war, invocations of a theological mandate, and absolutist notions of violence, with the goal being to create a fixed, boundless, eternal social order through the ultimate extermination of the enemy. Both have also relied heavily on the use of transnational media to reiterate a rhetoric of good versus evil and a spectacle of victimhood, demonization, dehumanization, and revenge.”-Stephen Graham, Cities Under Siege, pg. 39-40.
Why should YOU join ETTW?
If you’ve ever felt compelled to peacefully coexist with others, End The Terror War is a cause that’s just right for you. End The Terror War requires neither “leaders” or “followers”, as the author himself is an anarchist and wouldn’t like to see it destroyed as a movement before it even gathers momentum, on or offline. I grew up believing in the golden rule, treating others how I wish to be treated. ETTW is built upon such a foundation. I’d hope in interacting from people across the world, that we could all agree it’s a sound philosophy to follow.
A voluntary social contract is what formed the partnership between Liberty Under Attack and End The Terror War, and I’d hope to see that trend continue. We’ve achieved a surprising amount of positive reception within our first several months of online radio. If you share an unending disgust towards government’s terrorizing those they govern over, and others. And if you’re appalled at the actions of international terrorist entities, then ETTW is the right cause for you. While LUA doesn’t necessarily hold any particular set of “policies”, ETTW is inclusive and non-discriminatory. It’s a cause that welcomes people of different backgrounds, and will only close the door on ideological authoritarians who enjoy State terrorism as a mechanism to get what they want.
I don’t claim to know what the most convincing tack to different people is, but you’re more than welcome to contact the author below for further questions, discussion, and possible future plans for ETTW.
If any of the previously mentioned things sound morally or objectively in your interest, I hope we will achieve great things in advancing this antiwar cause. And if peaceful parenting is right up your alley, Kal Molinet from Liberate RVA has agreed to endorse ETTW for our mutual benefit.

How to help ETTW
I believe the best way to help End The Terror War is to provide international aid to people who’ve become refugees as a consequence of the globalized war campaign.
A secondary way to help ETTW is to watch Shane’s videos on YouTube, via his channel, via the url: www.youtube.com/user/LibertyUnderAttack
Using the hashtag “#endtheterrorwar” across the web: Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Gawker, Google+, Orkut, Diaspora, Tout, FriendFeed. No specific requirements are obligatory in using the hashtag, but bringing awareness to dissident articles against the “War on Terror” and other similar resistance media is welcome.
Another way to help End The Terror War (and Liberty Under Attack) is to buy our merchandise on Galloree: http://www.galloree.com/Shops/Liberty-Under-Attack–1053/index.php

ABOUT LIBERTY UNDER ATTACK & END THE TERROR WAR
I began Liberty Under Attack radio on FPRN with Shane during February 2015, right after my very first online interview with him on his YouTube channel (Liberty Under Attack) on December 2014. Since that time we’ve met many people who’ve been very positively receptive of us and others who’ve helped shape us into who we are today. Our partnership was born out of voluntaryism, with strong adherence to the belief in self-ownership and the non-aggression principle. Libertarian concepts. I’ve been an avowed and dedicated anarchist since our first interview, and recently Shane has warmed up to the idea of rejecting all forms of would-be “rulers.” He’s come a long way since we started, in defying the minarchistic Constitutionalism that was previously held onto.
I would like to give special thanks to the following organizations and people for supporting the LUA-ETTW (Liberty Under Attack, End The Terror War) partnership:
- Kal Molinet and Liberate RVA
- Ryan from Freedom Phalanx Radio Network
- Robert Bruce from Waking Up the Masses
- Bill Cooper from Hour of the Time for inadvertently influencing Shane’s decision in allowing me to taking a place in being his co-host on FPRN
- Kyle Rearden from The Last Bastille
