1/19/2015: When I first started writing articles in 2005, I probably promulgated many popular theories about WWII because of my ignorance. I cringe when I read some of my early efforts. I could cleanse my own archives but it would be like trying to capture feathers in a whirlwind because my articles are on other web sites. While many of the issues that appear in this multi-part article remain true, I have engaged in further, more objective research and no longer support the same conclusions that I arrived at when I began writing on the internet. People perpetuate false information, often unknowingly, because he/she is quoting or relying on other people’s information. Each of us needs to engage in independent objective research, and always use critical thinking when reading the "research" of others.
Full implementation of a one world government requires the annihilation of all defiant governments in order to establish central banks in every country, all under the control of the international banking elite. One World Order Proponent, Madeleine Albright, while Secretary of State, said: “If we have to use force, it is because we are America. We are the indispensable nation.” [i] While sounding arrogant and ego-driven, the establishment of the New World Order depends on our duplicitous military involvement for we are the military minions of the Power Elite. To garner popular acceptance for offensive invasions, those nations that resist the globalist agenda automatically become America’s enemies and are vilified as Communists, Marxists or terrorists.
Communist Party leaders proclaimed to its U.S. members in 1943: “When certain obstructionists become too irritating, label them, after suitable build-ups, as Fascist or Nazi or anti-Semitic; and use the prestige of anti-Fascist and tolerance organizations to discredit them. In the public mind constantly associate those who oppose us with those names which already have a bad smell.”
If the U.S. government, through the CIA, fails to install political puppets in target countries, then military interventions, using contrived reasons, are employed. Various subversive tactics include “shock and awe” invasions, armed occupation, economic sanctions or orchestrated economic collapse, and cultural, social and religious decimation perpetuated overtly by our super power military or covertly by our super secret CIA. The major function of secrecy in Washington is to keep the U.S. citizens ignorant, to keep them from knowing what their leaders are doing. “Secrecy is power. Secrecy is license. Secrecy covers up mistakes. Secrecy covers up corruption.” [ii] Governments that function in secrecy are dictatorships!
Author John Stockwell stated: “Extrapolating the figures as best we can, there have been about 3,000 major covert operations and over 10,000 minor operations, all illegal, and all designed to disrupt, destabilize, or modify the activities of other countries.” [iii] The targets of CIA destabilization have included, but are not limited to, the following countries: Grenada, Jamaica, Cuba, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras, Panama, Iraq and Vietnam. [iv] Would they still be third world without our subversive economic destabilization efforts?
So please, despite cheerleader Laura Ingraham’s assertions, and other propaganda parrots, WE ARE NOT FIGHTING FOR OUR FREEDOM!! We won our freedom over two hundred years ago. Since that time we have fought in sixteen acknowledged wars. Our military has entered other countries for the purpose of influencing foreign governments approximately 200 times. It has never been about our freedom. The only entity attempting to deprive us of that hard-won freedom appears to be our own government with deceptive documents like the Patriot Act One and Two which defines the innovative crime of “domestic terrorism.” New laws will further criminalize political protest and dissent, impacting our freedom of speech. Many, including ex-military men are hesitant to speak for fear of the certain negative consequences to their reputations and pensions. Active duty military, suspected of probable squealing, are suicided. George Orwell said: “We are living in a world in which nobody is free, in which hardly anybody is secure, in which it is almost impossible to be honest and to remain alive.”
It is the presidents, the kings and other leaders, driven by the international bankers and their goals, abetted by the press, who inflame the compliant citizens to go into battle against people who allegedly have harmed us or who might harm us, despite their lack of an army or weapons. Since our wars with Great Britain, the battles waged by America have been offensive. Even our retaliation against Japan was the result of the contrived and provoked attack on Pearl Harbor. Our wars, police actions, deposing dictators and concealed CIA interventions have always been for economic reasons – to enrich the bankers who typically fund both sides of the conflict.
Caesar said: “Beware of the leader who bangs the drums of war to whip the citizenry into patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind. And when the drums have reached fever pitch, and the blood boils with hate and the mind is closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry, rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader, and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar.”
Acquiescent Americans have been seduced by pro-war propaganda. Our super power status has metastasized into a “police the world” super ego mentality that we apparently applaud with our voices and surrender our tax dollars for. Our questionable pride precludes any premonitions about our own demise. Other formerly strong empires fell because of decadence and corruption – do we claim immunity to a similar collapse? Wake up people! Turn off the TV and read.
Author Harold Thomas says in his booklet: “In their day to day lives, in their immediate physical environment, most Americans have no discernable enemies. It is always possible that there could be governments and other organizations that pose a genuine physical threat to the American people. However, it is virtually impossible for the people to know this for themselves. They must depend almost entirely upon information provided by government and the mainstream media.” [v]
Again Harold says: “In all of human behavior, what can be more serious than supporting acts of violence against people in faraway places? Or for that matter, at home! Is there not a profound, moral responsibility to be absolutely sure of both the accuracy and urgency of the situation before perpetrating acts of death and destruction upon other human beings? How difficult does this become when one is at the mercy of sources of information that cannot be verified? What if those sources have lied to you at other times and on other issues, and you know it? What if both intuition and available facts tell you that your government has not only been lying to you, but may have been involved in creating the very danger it now says will require the use of violence? Is it morally justifiable to support your government’s acts of violence against people anywhere when:
1) You are not in immediate physical danger
2) You feel strongly that you cannot trust your government
3) You have no way to verify the information the government is providing as its excuse for violence?” [vi]
From infancy, Americans are media-conditioned to glorify war as a patriotic obligation. After years of viewing desensitizing violent multi-media marketing disseminated as entertainment or even news, naïve Americans are ready and willing to “fight for their country.” By graduation, high school seniors, who lack experience and real world awareness, are prime enlistment targets. After all the “good guys” should do everything possible to defeat the “bad guys” even if those actions go against individual, family, religious and moral values, right?
The government will proficiently train willing recruits, after instilling strict discipline, to use guns, knives, land mines, bombs, napalm, cruise missiles, smart bombs, cluster bombs and white phosphorous in order to kill or maim complete strangers – men, women and children, often referred to as collateral damage. Does that mean that the Power Elite regard the rest of us as commodities? After utilizing their expert killing skills during active duty, individuals are supposed to compartmentalize their horrific experiences and proceed psychologically and emotionally as if nothing had ever happened when they attempt to resume a civilian status.
Not only do we train our own citizens to be killing machines, we have trained some of the most sadistic people on the planet. We have established schools and have trained tens of thousands of military and police officers in countries all over Latin and Central America, and in Africa in three nations - Zaire, Ethiopia, and Uganda, and in Asia. [vii] These students were educated in techniques of population control, repression, and torture. In some instances, former Nazi officers from Hitler’s Third Reich functioned as instructors. [viii] U.S. Special Operations Forces trained 9,100 foreign soldiers in the 208 Joint Combined Exchange Training exercises. Under the International Military and Education Training program, U.S. forces trained 3,454 foreign forces, mostly officers. [ix] Drug trafficker Manuel Noriega and Roberto D’Aubuisson, the deadly architect of El Salvador’s right-wing death squad network graduated from The School of the Americas, just one of 150 such training facilities. [x]
One of our government’s major areas of training has been in the use of torture. When training films proved inadequate, beggars were rounded up as instructional guinea pigs. One homeless person, used as an instructional model, endured excruciating torture for over two years before international protests secured her release. One of America’s foremost torture instructors was Dan Mitrione, allegedly a typical family man, a devout Catholic, and a devoted father. Regardless, he dedicated his life to torturing people, some of whom he knew were innocent of any crime, simply because his government had decided to reject all humane considerations because of something called "national security." These words somehow justified torture. [xi] Just how much evil has been perpetrated under the ambiguous term “national security?
To facilitate foreign torture our government issued over 350 export licenses from September 1991 to December 1993 for more than $27 million for saps, thumb-cuffs, thumb-screws, leg-irons, shackles, handcuffs, strait jackets, and plastic handcuffs. These were issued for 57 countries, many of them with deplorable human rights records. Additionally, over 2,000 licenses were issued for 105 countries under another export category, which combined electro-shock batons and cattle prods with shotguns and shells. The next time you are outraged by news of state-authorized torture in some faraway country, please consider that our CIA probably provided the brutal training and that our government licensed the exportation of the torture equipment that was used.
Torture is incompatible to our rhetorical history of espousing human rights and our current claims of compassionate concern for the Iraqis. But I suppose as long as this vile practice is concealed we can still maintain the appearance of Christian civility among the misinformed. The tortured are well aware of the source. George Orwell reminded us with this statement: “The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them.” [xii]
Our technology has surpassed our humanity. Our arsenals are overflowing to the point that we supply the arms or munitions to the entire world. Author David McGowan says: “From 1989 to 1996 the U.S. sold more than $117 billion of arms, about 45 percent of the global total.” In a ten year period of time the world-wide arms business jumped from 16 percent to 63 percent. “U.S. arms dealers sell $10 billion in weapons to non-democratic governments each year.” “In 1986 the United States accounted for 13 percent of worldwide arms exports, but by 1995 the market was 70 percent, most “to developing nations, many with fragile autocracies that are easily destabilized” [xiii]
· Between 1993-1997 we sold or gave $190 billion in weapons to every nation on earth.
· Non-democratic Eritrea and Ethiopia fought each other using U.S. arms and training.
· Opponents Greece and Turkey are two of America’s biggest arms customers.
· U.S. military support was provided to 168 nations in 1998.
· U.S. arms sales doubled during Clinton’s first year in office.
· Five nations received over $1 billion in U.S. military support in 1997: Taiwan, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Turkey and Egypt.
· Sixteen nations received over $100 million in military support.
· Of the 53 armed forces in Africa, 41 received U.S. military training.
· Of the eleven nations intervening in the civil war in the Congo in 1998, nine received U.S. arms and training in 1997.
· Since 1990, the government has given away more than $8 billion worth of surplus equipment from U.S. military stocks including 4,000 tanks, 500 bombers and 200,000 light arms to Bahrain, Colombia, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Mexico, Peru and Turkey.
· Lockheed Martin, the world’s largest arms maker, is selling sophisticated fighter airplanes and air defense systems to at least 21 nations. [xiv]
· The United States spends more on arms annually than the rest of the Security Council combined.
· The U.S. has more nuclear bombs, chemical and biological weapons, aircraft, rockets and delivery systems than the rest of the combined world.
· We have troops stationed at over 395 major military bases in over 35 countries. [xv]
In America's last five armed conflicts, the opposing troops were battling adversaries who had previously received U.S. weapons, military technology, or training. [xvi]
Killing is more profitable than using our God-given genius to enrich and edify mankind – we use swords rather than plows. The resources of the world are enough and to spare but the power-hungry seize and use those resources to garner control over the souls of men to bind them with the awful chains of hell. There is something drastically wrong when an allegedly Christian nation that kills over 45 million innocent citizens in the name of women’s rights and wages preemptive wars against defenseless nations in the name of spreading or establishing democracy, protecting our national security, toppling previously-installed CIA dictators or some other noble-sounding, trumped-up justification. Our military superiority alleviates all competition – all one has to do is recall Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy “People have not been horrified by war to a sufficient extent ... War will exist until that distant day when the conscientious objector enjoys the same reputation and prestige as the warrior does today.”
