The United Sates’ so-called war on terror is essentially a war of conquest designed to steal the resources of independent countries, an investigative journalist and  author in Madrid says.

Daniel Estulin, the author of The True Story of the Bilderberg, made the remarks on Sunday in an interview with Press TV while commenting on Russian President Vladimir Putin’s affirmation that the US is attempting to dominate the world.

“I think Putin is absolutely right,” Estulin said. “You have to look at it in the context of the global war on terrorism, which is basically a fabrication based on the illusion and misconception that one man, Osama bin Laden, was able to outwit the 40 billion dollars US intelligence apparatus.”

“The whole US war on terror is basically a war of conquest,” he added.

US officials assert that the September 11, 2001 attacks, which killed nearly 3,000 people and caused at least $10 billion in property and infrastructure damage, were carried out by al-Qaeda terrorists but many analysts say it was a false-flag operation and that Osama bin Laden was just a bogeyman for the US military-industrial complex.

They believe rogue elements within the US government orchestrated or at least encouraged the 9/11 attacks in order to make the US a police state by encroaching on the people’s civil liberties and advance the agenda of the military-industrial complex.

“Globalization, unipolarity is the final march for the New World Order…dominated by the Wall Street, the city of London and also the military-industrial complex,” Estulin said.

“Have you noticed that whenever any country has an independent government with oil resource, financial, agricultural, or strategic resources, not yet subjected to the transnational corporate control, there’s the United States-led campaign to destroy it,” he noted.

“We can talk about Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, Egypt, Libya, Syria; they have all experienced this over many decades dating back to the overthrow of   [Prime Minister Mohammad] Mosaddegh in Iran in 1953,” Estulin stated.

“Iraq today is a model example of this, controlling both sides of the ever shifting Middle East war to seize the assets of all, and so [is] the NATO bombings and al-Qaeda-led and the United States-financed overthrow of Gaddafi in Libya,” he pointed out.
