day a few years back, I was watching Crossfire when someone stated that the reason the
Clinton presidency was just a good presidency and not a great presidency, was because
Clinton didn't win a war.
I thought, funny, I'd have thought it was the other way
According to our leaders, we are a peace loving nation.

Real Reason for the Iraq War

While I support the idea that we should have a strong military to defend ourselves as
well as to assist citizens of other nations fighting oppression and genocide - and
sometimes that requires military force to uphold and empower justice - the idea that we
should judge the greatest of our nations based on our ability to destroy nations who will
not conform to our own ideology and world view is actually psychotic.
There's no difference between our "Glory of War" mentality than the mentality
of a playground bully who believes that they can dominate everyone so long as everyone is
afraid of them and they get their way.
I would think we would consider it a sad duty to have to commit troops to such
brutality. Not celebrate it like playing in a soccer game.
These are the same people, like George W. Bush, George H.W. Bush, Ronald Reagan
- and now even John McCain (bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb bomb Iran) and Barack
Obama are perpetuating the same ideology - the proof is in their latest
votes to approve the FISA/Telecom Immunity Legislation. There's an
inconvenient truth for you.
It's the Rhoades Scholar school mentality of imperialism and colonialism and ideology
that has ruined Rhodesia (check out the history). See also Harvard and Yale, Skull and
Bones, and then ask yourself why it's necessary to be a Yale or Harvard Grad, Rhoades
Scholar or member of the Council on Foreign Relations to be considered a legitimate
When McCain makes jokes about bombing Iran - understand, in a cavalier way, not even
giving consideration to the deaths tht would occur - is it really that tantalizing for
Americans to imagine feeling powerful because we can destroy other nations and peoples so
easily? Is it really that easy for our leaders to send our sons and daughters into
Then, Barack Obama comes along as Mr. Change. And yet, he perpetuates
the myths of the
war on terror by re-directing our attention - changing the subject - and re-focusing us on
a war in Afghanistan that was every bit as much a fraud. There is documentation on this
site showing that it was about establishing U.S. control over the Caspian Sea Oil Pipeline
that the Clinton Administration failed to negotiate peacefully. Our nation had no concern
about the conduct of the Taliban until negotitations failed, and a South American company
was going to get the contract.
Then 911 happened. 5 of the 6 "hijackers" supposedly on the plane with
Muhammad Atta are alive and well in the Middle East. And Bin Laden has been associated
with the CIA since Russia invaded Afghanistan, for the same reasons we originally worked
with the Taliban. And they met with him in July, before the 911 attacks.
So now, Barack thinks we should go back into Afghanistan with more forces and depleted
uranium, and complete the job of securing the pipeline. He says it's for the war on
terrorism and Al Qaeda and Bin Laden.
For the sake of campaign showmanship, he uses the same George W. Bush hubris to say
we'll go after Al Qaeda in Pakistan. This, because of the glory and prowess of the U.S.
war machine, and how we've been trained to love our victorious military, and how it
garners votes... and profits for our multi-national corporations.
But, do you hear anyone talking about the upheaval it would cause in that region if we
began unilaterally encroaching on Pakistan's sovereignty? What would Americans do if the
same thing if it happened on our soil? The Minute Men on the border of Mexico should
suffice as the answer to that question.
The fact is, the great "mythical fear" that Iran is trying to set up a
dynasty across the region would actually be caused by such military action. Inevitably,
that sets up the scenario for the "never-ending" Orwellian war.. and the
perpetuation of the myth of threats on us by terrorists, to generate the desire for a
nationalistic war stance... that will bankrupt us and provoke additional attacks... in
It's time for the American people to wake up and realize they've been hoodwinked by
politicians with ideologies and ulterior motives that have done nothing more than hijacked
this nation, despite the will of the people.
Barack Obama is no different. He used great campaign slogans and themes (stolen) to get
the nomination. And now, objectively look at what he's doing, and you'll see that his war
policies are no different than McCain's, Bush's, the Council on Foreign Relations and the
Project for a New American Century (of war and profiteering).
I'm not saying that as a partisan attacking McCain and Obama.
I'm saying that as an American Citizen who realizes just how corrupt and morally
bankrupt the two party system is, and how it has subverted the government with unAmerican
activities and whitewashed "Blue Panel Commissions" with the authority and media
prowess to sell wholesale lies to us all. Time and time again.
I say no more on that.
I say that the notion of "the glory of war" is a sin.
this really gloriful?
That we should actually believe we are righteous in the eyes of God for perpetuating a
culture of war while pandering to the citizens as people of peace... which we are... it is
our leaders whose egos have gone out of control who have sold us on the idea that war is a
good thing, that might makes right, and that we, as citizens, can't possible give
reasonable argument against war because we don't have all the facts.
Melanie - Lay Down
That the United States should and will succeed in being the global
empire by force?
Did anyone ask you if that's what you, a citizen, would want done with
your tax dollars and the lives of your children?
And then the government feeds us lies about Iraq, and calls us unpatriotic, while the
truth is in the mainstream press, and Congress claims it didn't know they were being lied
to. And then they lie when they say they aren't lying, while all the evidence clearly
shows they have. They knew. They were in cahoots together. And only a little bit of
reading will prove it to you.
Why is there no Bush impeachment? Because to impeach him would mean they'd have to
disclose the proof that Congress was, by and large, acquiescing to the shadow government,
in violation of the Constitution AND in violation of RICCO Statutes (racketeering) on a
Government investigators and prosecutors, if they were in an administration that could
actually be trusted to serve the citizens, would call that a massive conspiracy to
overthrow the United States Government, if viewed objectively. And the truth doesn't
change if you are a Democrat or Republican.
My solution to the Iraqi conflict, for example: not a surge of troops, but a surge of
peace keeping forces trained in conflict resolution to work with the people and the
government to bring negotiated peace with the citizens first, to communicate our intent to
give them their country back and then assist them in rebuilding - side by side - so they'd
understand we really do want to help. And, no, it's not as simple as that. But it would
have created a unified effort for us and the Iraqis, instead of a struggle for
Riot police don't seem to do a good job in preventing riots, but we sure see evidence
that they provoke them. Think about that objectively. Ask the people at Telemundo.
Instead, we push our weight around, demand that the Iraqis sign oil leases and
contracts with American Companies and affiliates, and shoot them for now wanting foreign
oppressors in their own country to leave.
The war that has proven to be a mistake... the outcome of a corrupt, lying
government... has now become a symbol of the might of the United States wherby victory is
the goal... an actually undefined goal, that relates to old political themes like McCain's
use of Nixon's "Peace With Honor" theme... a goal promoted by the Council on
Foreign Relations based mainstream media corps... a goal stated by both candidates.
They say Peace With Honor, when all they really care about is appeasing voters, and
their real slogan is, how can we get the heck out and make it look like we did something
good and valiant despite the facts?
Candidates discuss the Iraq war in detail as if it matters how we dealt with the
"Awakening" and the surge as if to say "We may have gotten there for all
the wrong reasons, but we might as well beat them up good and claim victory instead of
admitting the criminality of the military action and the war crimes that will be dealt
with one way or another... "
We'll just tell the American people that the other "bad" countries trying to
prosecute our traitorous politicians that they're ganging up on us, and we'll get America
to hate anyone who opposes us, just like the government and media - the Council on Foreign
Relations - did to the French.
And it's all based on the Hitlerian methods and human psychology - propaganda - that
allows these politicians to sell us the lies that cause us to support such wars and make
us believe that the U.S. is serving the plan of God.. that is the most egregious
crime/hoax of all.
The idea of "never again" is not just applicable to Jews. It belongs to us
No genocide/holocaust in the Middle East, Rwanda, Darfur, Kenya, South Africa.. they
all tell you how horrible it is and do nothing. The proof is in their actions. And their
political will, but they have none, because they want those things to happen for the
geo-political strategies of Brzezinski, the Council on Foreign Relations and the
Ever notice that NBC/GE is in Rockefeller Center? Does that tell you anything? How
about that Tom Brokaw retired from NBC and became a board member of the Council on Foreign
Relations (their chief propagandist, apparently, all these years), as did Colin Powell?
The American people ARE peace loving people. Just as George Bush accurately declared
that torture is not in the hearts of the American people... as he was personally directing
If the American people are peace loving, decide for yourself if the politicians are.
Since the United States came into existence, we have been involved in more than 230
military actions in foreign countries. 230. Right now, we have troops in over 130
countries. We are the ones implementing a war of terror, not a war on terror.
When Ronald Reagan said we have to look to the past to see the future, he wasn't
talking about making things better for citizens, he was, as the "great
Communicator", a propagandist, saying that we must look at, as politicians, methods
that were tried in the past, and how they failed, and how they can improve the old
propaganda paradigms so they cannot fail.
One of those paradigms of the past - for centuries - was how to trick the citizens of a
country to go along with an agenda for global war. It just happened right before our eyes.
Think about this.

Was Not A Nazi Polka
A quote form Hermann Goering, Adolf Hitler's 2nd in
command, regarding How to Generate Public Acceptance &
Enthusiasm for War
"Why, of course the people don't want war. Why should some poor slob
on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to
come back to his farm in one piece?"
"Naturally, the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in
England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood."
"But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the
policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a
democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament or a communist dictatorship."
"Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the
leaders. That is easy."
"All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the
peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the
same in any country."
Then, think about this, when considering the actions, not the speeches, of George
W. Bush and the Democratic Congress, Barack Obama and John McCain. (Don't forget FISA)
From the Declaration of Independence -
Uncanny similarities between complaints about King George... and
current events. How many of these do you recognize? (not all of them are similar, of
course) Here is the excerpt..
The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and
usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over
these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance,
unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so
suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people,
unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a
right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant
from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into
compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his
invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected;
whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at
large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers
of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavored to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose
obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to
encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for
establishing Judiciary powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and
the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass
our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our
constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended
Television is the most powerful communication medium on the planet. The FCC ws
created to protect the interests of the people, instead it protects the lies of
politicians and propagandists.
As with people who are elected, there are responsibilities that go with the trust
bestowed on such people and organizations. Think about the implications, the power it
gives them to sway public opinion.
So, that trust has been violated. Time and time again. I think it's
criminal. In many cases, some political activities were illegal, but covered over by
a sympathetic, if not an intimidated, manipulated press. Not hard to understand when you
understand who owns most major media outlets in the U.S..
I do not say these things lightly. And it sounds extreme, but the tactics being
used are straight out of Hitler's playbooks. Read. You'll understand I"m
telling the truth. I truly wish I was wrong, but I'm not.
Propaganda at this level of influence is dangerous and irresponsible, and
should be illegal, just as should be subliminal advertising. Propaganda is nothing more
than the overt form of subliminalization and Psycvhological Operations on a massive
scale. It is on this basis that we should seek to revoke their broadcast licenses.
So, make up your own mind. Are you one of the thousands of people walking around
saying "Everyone knows Bush stole the election " and then shrugging your
shoulders as if it doesn't matter? That we were lied to? That the current candidates
are fronting the same militaristic policies using prettier words?
Or, are you one of the angry people saying "Why doesn't somebody do something
Either way, make up your own mind and do what you think you should do as a
good citizen to empower Americans by empowering America. That's what made this
country great. That's the only thing that will keep it great. The
people. You and me.
Finally, there are times when materials on this site may seem extreme or stuff you wish
you didn't have to think about... I ask that you only understand that when you are
spending most of your time following the events of the entire world, and trying to
understand the patterns, it can be a little daunting... makes ya wanna
scream.. I apologize for the extremes. All I ask is that you understand that I
am doing this to make a contribution... to empower Americans with information so that we
may make informed observations and choices, and not simply acquiesce to a corrupt
government out of fear and false hope.
