The words “tourism” and “Iraq” don’t often get used in the same sentence these days, but if a new project to help preserve the historic ruins of Babylon pays off, archaeologists and officials say the country could soon be back on the international travel map.
So far, 2011 has been a good year for Babylon. Work funded by a $2 million U.S. State Department grant to restore two major structures has begun and one of two museums on the site damaged in the aftermath of the 2003 U.S.-led invasion is re-opening.
Home to several other ancient sites, including Ur — the capital of the ancient civilization of Sumeria — Iraq faces a race against time to protect its heritage against looters, environmental hazards and the ravages of modern life.
It is hoped the project at Babylon, whose legendary Hanging Gardens were one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, will help foster the skills needed to transform Iraq’s other renowned archaeological sites into a major draw for academics and tourists.
Originally known as Babel, Babylon is mentioned in both the Old and New Testaments in the Bible. The city was the site of the legendary Tower of Babel and features in several Biblical prophecies.
This report was prepared as a trade study review of current and projected active camouflage systems. While numerous applications were discussed, the focus was for systems that could be used by infantry soldiers, and specifically for infantry helmet applications. A review of the current and projected active camouflage systems revealed that there are many systems under development for aviation, maritime, and ground operations. Early prototypes for infantry soldiers were presented in detail. A system overview was prepared in order to present camera, image processing, and display solutions. Finally, a discussion focusing on technology limitations, applications, and future considerations was presented. This trade study showed that numerous technologies for active camouflage systems are under development; however major technical roadblocks must be addressed before systems will be ready for infantry applications.
Coincidences stopped occuring a long time ago for me, I started realising that everything happens for a specfic reason. That said, there are some world leaders who are following ancient scripture in a sick way or there is way more to the holy book(s) than people think. Here is a piece of history regarding babylon and babel tower that you might now have know. Tell me, why is the European Parliment building a modern replica of this tower? What kind of joke is this?
Babylon (Syriac: ܒܵܐܒܸܠ or ܒܐܒܠ) was a city-state of ancient Mesopotamia, the remains of which are found in present-day Al Hillah, Babil Province, Iraq, about 85 kilometers (55 mi) south of Baghdad. All that remains of the original ancient famed city of Babylon today is a mound, or tell, of broken mud-brick buildings and debris in the fertile Mesopotamian plain between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, in Iraq. Although it has been reconstructed, historical resources inform us that Babylon was at first a small town, that had sprung up by the beginning of the third millennium BC (the dawn of the dynasties). The town flourished and attained prominence and political repute with the rise of the First Babylonian Dynasty. It was the “holy city” of Babylonia by approximately 2300 BC, and the seat of the Neo-Babylonian Empire from 612 BC. The Hanging Gardens of Babylon were one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
The form Babylon is the Greek variant of Akkadian Babilu (bāb-ilû, meaning “Gateway of the god(s)”, translating Sumerian Ka.dingir.ra). In the Hebrew Bible, the name appears as בבל (Babel), interpreted by Book of Genesis 11:9 to mean “confusion” (of languages), from the verb balbal, “to confuse”.

What the fuck is the deal with the 11 inverted pentagrams?
Ordo Ab Chao translated from Latin into English becomes ‘Order out of Chaos’. This is the fundamental principal that every government organisation adheres to when trying to impose upon their plebiscite’s specific new law’s or methods of governance that would be predictably unpopular or unnecessary. The major one that has occurred in recent times, the one that awoke me to this strategy, was 9/11. It is a method in which the ruling class wishes to impose upon the serfs new rules, but knows the serfs will not accept them straight off the bat – so it introduces the problem to them in such a way, the serfs actually request these new rules or legislation, in some cases demands them! Explain it more? Ok.
“Those who do not learn from history are condemned to repeat it.” – George Santayana
David Icke has made this basic description quite accessible and easily explained. He refers to it as ‘Problem, Reaction, Solution’. Another way to describe it is ‘Thesis, Antithesis, Synthesis’. Here is a quick example using the ‘War on Terror’ as the problem, and the insane freedom destroying legislation that followed as the synthesis.
Problem Governments want a ‘War on Terror’. This will allow them to increase their military spending by epic proportions generating a huge cash flow for the elite corporations that directly profit. Also, it reduces the privacy of the citizen to nothing. Citizens that have no secrets can be easily predicted. So they ATTACK themselves and blame Al-qaeda. 9/11 and 7/7 & Jakarta bombings all blamed on Muslim extremists.
Reaction People are terrified, no one wants to die in a terrorist attack. The newspapers display HUGE graphic images in the daily papers, play non stop video footage of destruction and carnage on television during prime time. People are scared and they want the government to save them. Eventually they start demanding the GOVERNMENT do something about it! HELP US!
Solution The government declares a ‘War on Terror’. This opens up the doors for unlimited, warrantless wiretapping. Every single phonecall/sms/email you send has been recorded and databased in a huge data warehouse. Nothing you do is private. Military spending has been jacked up and is bankrupting our nations. As Bush said when he was declaring his war on terror, ‘You are with us, or you are with the terrorists’.
Of course the media has a huge hand in making this materialise, but you knew their was something shifty happening with the mainstream media already, didn’t you This is just one very basic description of the hegelian dialectic. Another one that is extremely easy to comprehend is the Iraq war.
Problem: They wanted to invade Iraq – people would not have accepted a war in such a modern time, wars were meant to have been a thing of the past. SADDAM HUSSEIN HAS WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION!!!
Reaction: Save us from the WMD’s!!!!!!! Who can remember the local papers print a massive in your face WMD on the front page? I can.
Solution: Invade Iraq. And to this day, I guess if you were so inclined (ignorant), we are still ‘solving’ this problem.
Now you understand the principal of Ordo Ab Chao, you can understand why the Iraq war has perpetuated so long. Remember reading non stop about those car bombings that occurred all the time in Iraq? The unjustified invasion of Iraq was the true root cause of them. But instead, they were used as the ‘problem’, the reaction the papers would illicit would be a deep disturbance, people would want them to stop occurring. How would that happen? By ‘Staying the Course’.
Ordo Ab Chao
Problem – Reaction – Solution Easy to understand right? Thats because it is such an effective principal, we are constantly falling for it. This is why freemasons use Ordo Ab Chao as their motto. This is why it is called ‘Political Science’, because controlling a population isn’t a guessing game, it is SCIENCE. Now that facebook is cracking, that science just got a whole lot more advanced. What are you thinking? What’s on your mind? These questions just help them plan a little better for next time. Think about that when you mindlessly type into those boxes.
This was the methodology Adolf Hitler used to empower himself as supreme dictator of Germany. Marinus van der Lubbe was examplified as a communist and allowed Hitler to cause an uproar amongst the country. “At his trial, Van der Lubbe was found guilty and sentenced to death. He was beheaded by guillotine (the customary form of execution in Saxony at the time, it was by axe in the rest of Germany) on January 10, 1934, three days before his 25th birthday. The Nazis alleged that Van der Lubbe was part of the Communist conspiracy to burn down the Reichstag and seize power, while the Communists alleged that Van der Lubbe was part of the Nazi conspiracy to blame the crime on them. Van der Lubbe, for his part, maintained that he had acted alone to protest the condition of the German working class. Hitler suspended civil liberties in the name of battling the communists in the country and never relented his power. This power is similar to what our governments today have been instilled with in the name of freedom, they call it the Patriot Act.
Now you know how it happens, watch the news and you can see it happening right before your very eyes.
